Philadelphia Thursday (Character)
from Fort Apache (1948)
Captain Yorke: [quoting regulations] "An officer, upon reporting to a new post, must wait upon his commanding officer at the first possible moment. He will leave his card."
2nd Lt. Michael O'Rourke: [continuing to quote the regulation] "He will leave an additional card for each lady in the commanding officer's family."
Captain Yorke: [continuing] "All other officers on the post will, in turn, leave their cards at the quarters of the incoming officer."
Captain Yorke: Right?
2nd Lt. Michael O'Rourke: Right!
2nd Lt. Michael O'Rourke: Now do you understand?
Philadelphia Thursday: It was just a duty call?
Captain Yorke: That's it - just a duty call. But there's nothing in the regulations that says the commanding officer's daughter should receive such cards on her backporch... in her nightie.
