La Bessiere: Good evening, officer.

Ship's Deck Officer: [Indifferently] A vaudeville actress, probably.

La Bessiere: Uh, just, uh, how do you know that?

Ship's Deck Officer: Oh, we carry them every day. We call them 'suicide passengers.' One way ticket. They never return.

Lo Tinto, Nightclub Owner: [At the nightclub, to the newly arrived Amy Jolly] Now, you may have heard of me, or not. My house is patronized by the finest society in Morocco... Now, what was I going to say?... Oh, yes: Pick yourself a protector. It will give you prestige. An officer in the Legion. They will tell you that the officers in the Legion are unimportant, that the common Legionnaire is the thing. They will tell you that Private so-and-so is a Russian prince or an ex-general, that he joined the Legion to forget his past. Don't believe it! The Private is a 'nobody' at 75 centimes per day... Pick the officers - THEY have the money!

Amy Jolly: [singing, at the nightclub] What am I bid for my apple, the fruit that made Adam so wise? On the historic night, when he took a bite, they discovered a new paradise. An apple, they say, keeps the doctor away, while his pretty young wife has the time of her life, with the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker... Oh, what am I bid for my apple?

Madame Caesar: Tom, I must see you tonight.

Tom Brown: See me tonight? What if your husband sees you tonight?

Madame Caesar: He isn't going to see me...

Tom Brown: Isn't he? What if he does?

Madame Caesar: [Coyly, quoting a classic line from the time of Julius Caesar] Caesar's wife is above suspicion.

Tom Brown: Yeah? You may know something about ancient history, but I know something about husbands.

[Gives her a little salute and walks off]

Amy Jolly: [Bessiere has presented her with a very expensive-looking piece of jewelry] I can't accept this. It's worth a fortune.

Tom Brown: What in the name of 10,000 purples did you come to a country like this for anyway?

Amy Jolly: I understand that men are never asked why they enter the Foreign Legion.

Tom Brown: That's right! They never asked me and if they had I wouldn't have told. When I crashed the Legion, I ditched the past.

Amy Jolly: There's a Foreign Legion of women, too. But we have no uniforms, no flags, and no medals - when *we* are brave. No wound stripes - when *we* are hurt.

Tom Brown: Look here, is there anything I can do to help you?

Amy Jolly: No. I've thought that before. Or, do you think you can restore my faith in men?

Tom Brown: Not me. You got the wrong man for that! Anybody who has faith in me is a sucker.

Amy Jolly: You better go now. I'm - beginning to like you.

Tom Brown: I've told women about everything a man can say. I'm going to tell you something I've never told a woman before: I wish I'd met you ten years ago.

[first lines]

Sergeant Tatoche: Now listen here, fat-heads. We're back home again and that's because we did a little fighting. And I know what you're thinking. You're thinking: Well, here comes us, The Foreign Legion. Each man a hero, all the booze in the world made for us, and the women thrown in. But, you're wrong. This time, you're gonna behave yourselves like gentlemen even if it'll kills you. Yes, I'm talking to you, you heard what I said!

Tom Brown: [gun fire and the Legionnaires hit the turf] I don't see why we have to keep getting down all day? We only have to get up again. Anyhow, those walking bed sheets can't shoot straight.
