Gallipoli (1981)
Archy Hamilton: What are you going to join, the Infantry?
Frank Dunne: Not joining anything.
Archy Hamilton: But you gotta be in it.
Frank Dunne: Don't have to if you don't want to.
Archy Hamilton: You gotta be.
Frank Dunne: No I don't. It's a free country, or haven't you heard.

Archy Hamilton: You of all people should be going.
Frank Dunne: Why me of all people?
Archy Hamilton: 'Cause you're an athlete.
Frank Dunne: [laughs] What's that got to do with it?
Archy Hamilton: I've got mates who'd be lucky to do the hundred in twelve and they're going to do their bit, so why shouldn't you?
Frank Dunne: Because it's not our bloody war.
Archy Hamilton: What do you mean, not our war?
Frank Dunne: It's an English war. It's got nothing to do with us.
Archy Hamilton: You know what you are? A bloody coward.
Frank Dunne: There's only one reason why I haven't knocked you down mate.
Archy Hamilton: What?
Frank Dunne: 'Cause I don't feel like carrying you to the next bloody water hole. Now shut up and don't open your yap about the war again!

Frank Dunne: Have another drink.
Archy Hamilton: Whiskey doesn't make you look old.
Frank Dunne: Oh, doesn't it just? Have you seen my dad? I know he looks like a wreck, but he's really 35.

Frank Dunne: [to Archy] The thing I can't stand about you, mate, is you're always so bloody cheerful.

Major Barton: Marker flags? Who told him there were marker flags?
Lt. Grey: I heard someone say they'd seen one sir.
Major Barton: Who? WHO?
Lt. Grey: I'm not sure sir.
Major Barton: Grey, you bloody idiot! Nobody got further than ten yards!
Frank Dunne: Why don't you go above Robinson's head sir?
Major Barton: To General Gardner, go like the wind!

Archy Hamilton: I'll see you when I see you.
Frank Dunne: Yeah. Not if I see you first.

[last lines]
Frank Dunne: [Frank is running back to Trench to tell them to stop the attack] Gangway! Gangway! Gangway! Urgent message!
Frank Dunne: [the whistle blows] Gangway, NOOOOOOOOOOO! AHHHHHHHHHH!

Col. Robinson: Tell Major Barton that the attack must proceed.
Frank Dunne: Sir, I don't think you've got the picture. They are being cut down before they can get five yards.
[hits the phone]
Col. Robinson: Bloody line! I don't care! Our marker flags have been seen in the Turkish trenches. The attack is to continue at all costs.
Frank Dunne: But...
Col. Robinson: I repeat, the attack must proceed!
