The Big Parade (1925)
Bull: [Having - along with Slim - broken into the wine cellar under the farmhouse, where together they imbibe lots of wine] Can you imagine? Some guys was saps enough to join the Navy!
James Apperson: Orders! Orders! Who the hell is fighting this war - men or orders?
James Apperson: Waiting! Orders! Mud! Blood! Stinking stiffs! What the hell do we get out of this war anyway!
James Apperson: [after Slim is killed] They got him! They got him! God damn their souls!
Intertitle card: [War has been declared. America is going to enter WWI, which sets off a wave of patriotic fervor] What a thing is patriotism! We go for years not knowing we have it. Suddenly - Martial music!... Native flags!... Friends cheer!... and it becomes life's greatest emotion!
James Apperson: [Melisande has just said something to him in French] I don't understand a word you say... but I know what you mean!
