    Okay, as if we didn't have enough quizzes wafting about the forum, here's another.

    Guess the movie the provided quote comes from. Rules same as other quizzes, person who answers provides next.

    What movie is this quote from?

    "How did you get in the Navy? How did you get on our side? Oh you ignorant, arrogant, ambitious... keeping sixty-two men in prison 'cause you got a palm tree for the work they did. I don't know which I hate worse, you or that other malignant growth that stands outside the door."

    It is from my favorite movie. I guess you could google the quotes in their entirety, but try to make a sport out of it.

    Edit:

    World War II movies only, and if it is a foreign film, please translate it into English.

    Rules? Is this any movie, WW2 specific, or any military movie?

    Hmm. Navy huh? I doubt it but The Cain Mutiny?

    Yes, I'm sorry I neglected to mention that. In keeping witht spirit of the forum, World War II movies only, please

    Mister Roberts is correct. Quote was from when he and the captain finally had it out.

    Woot woot! Anyways, here is my quote:

    Its from the best movie i've seen in a year, and about the only quote I can find that I don't have to block out the entire thing. If I give any more away, it'll be too easy to guess. However, saying 'John Wayne' is plenty of a clue (if you connect the dots).

    My Fav quote would be....

    "Do you know any Russian?"

    "Yes, Yavas Lublu"

    "Yavas Lublu, Yavas lublu... what does that mean?"

    "I love you"

    "what the bloody hell good is that?"

    "I dont know, I wasnt planning on using it myself!"

    "I guess I could give him a quick examination if you'd like."

    And for a new rule to this game, no moving on to another quote until the current one is answered. If that is ok with the originator of this game/thread that is....

    Nobody can place this quote, or is it nobody cares? Hmmmmmmmmmm?

    It's from "Biloxi Blues," the scene when the boys are on a weekend pass and go to Rowena's (the hooker) place. Specifically, when Selridge, Carney and Jerome are waiting for their turn in the bedroom, and are discussing "accepted" sexual positions. Remember it now?

    Anyway, it's still my turn, so I'll make it easy on y'all.

    "The natives are restless tonight."

    Oh wait a minute, that not from a WW2 war movie, or from a war movie at all come to think of it. It's from "Island of Lost Souls," the 1930s original. Sorry about that men.

    Here's a good one from a real WW2 movie;

    "A couple of tanks my a$$, there's about 20 of 'em out there!"
