North West Frontier (1959)
Captain Scott: You're the first American woman I've met. Are they all like you?
Catherine Wyatt: Why? How do I seem?
Captain Scott: Well, shall we say a little bit more independent than most?
Catherine Wyatt: Is that the tactful English way of saying you think I'm pig-headed?
Catherine Wyatt: The British never seem to do anthing until they've had a cup of tea, By which time it's too late,
Catherine Wyatt: Are you sure about Mr. Van Layden? I mean, won't you get into a lot of trouble if you're wrong?
Captain Scott: Wouldn't you like to see me drummed out of my regiment? Paraded before the troops? Medals torn off my manly bosom? I used to think that would be just your cup of tea.
Catherine Wyatt: They don't really do all that, do they?
Captain Scott: Well, of course they do! And my best friend calls on me in my quarters, hands me a loaded revolver and says, "Carruthers, its the only way out for a gentleman."
Captain Scott: "Be thankful you're living and trust your luck, march to your front like a soldier."
Catherine Wyatt: Who said that?
Captain Scott: Man called Kipling. Another tea-drinker.
Bridie: It seems a bit extreme to me locking him up like that, after all what can he do?
Catherine Wyatt: The idea of locking him up is so that we don't have to find out what he can do, Mr. Bridie.
Bridie: I don't suppose he's even got anything to read.
Lady Windham: Where's Mr. Van Leyden?
Captain Scott: He, uh... he got off
Lady Windham: He got off... oh, dear!
Peters: Uhhh, Mrs. Wyatt, it is clear you do not understand the British mentality. While Van Leyden was a Dutch journalist, Mr. Bridie here diskiked him intensely, Ouuh... as soon as he discovered discovered he was a half breed, Bridie began... well... felt a certain sympathy for him... Now that you all suspect him of being an anti-British fanatic and maty be a murderer, Mr. Bridie will start crusading for him. He has become an underdog. and the British love underdogs.
Bridie: Hmmm, it's better than kicking them, Mr. Peters.
