Von Ryan's Express (1965)
James Brolin: Private Ames
Sergeant Bostick : [referring to Fincham and the Britsh] It took 200 years to turn out these men, Sergeant. It took me 90 days.
Sergeant Bostick : They;re nuts, sir.
Colonel Joseph L. Ryan : Maybe so, but it's their ball game.
Private Ames : And we're still shut out!
Corporal Giannini : We did that good with just a sergeant!
Private Ames : Now we got us a bird-colonel.
Colonel Joseph L. Ryan : A bird colonel outranks a bird brain... clear?
Corporal Giannini : [contemtuously after Ryan walks away] Bird is right... chicken!
Sergeant Bostick : OK, OK, now we know we're on our own.
