Never So Few

Synopsis: Captain Tom Reynolds and his band of skilled O.S.S. operatives are in WWII Burma to train the Kachin natives in modern warfare. But jungle combat, particularly against a Japanese army as familiar with the terrain as the Kachin, is more grueling than Reynolds had reckoned. Some respite is found in the arms of beautiful Carla, but after Chinese rebels cross the border to loot and murder American soldiers, Reynolds abandons all notions of "military protocol" and seeks requital.

- A human is not an animal.

- Don't give me sermons.

- You're not the chaplain.

- You can't murder a man...

- ... without killing part of yourself.

- I've been killing all night.

- Now, get out.

- So have all of us.

- But that doesn't give you the right-

- Get out.

Why? Why'd you have to do that?

- Get back to your squawk box.

- Why didn't you let Nautaung do it?

Because it's my job, that's why.

You get back to your job.

Get hold of the colonel.

Tell him I'll meet his plane...

- ... at coordinates George six point three.

- Yes, sir.

Charlie Fox Dog calling Zebra four-two.

Over.

Zebra four-tWo, over.

George six point three.

Coded. Over.

Over.

They wanna know your purpose

for coming in.

My name's Ringa, sir.

Colonel Parkson's driver.

- Where's the colonel?

- Locked in a military mission.

He said he'd meet you at headquarters

at 0800 in the morning, sir.

What's he expect us to do till 0800 in

the morning? Play a fast game of jacks?

He suggested the captain use the time

to adjust himself to civilization.

You know, girls, booze. You got more

weapons here than a bank dick. Sir.

Yeah. We put no trust in slingshots.

Well, the jeep and I are both

at the captain's convenience.

Any questions, sir?

Yeah. You wouldn't happen to know

a Red Cross lady named Margaret Fitch?

- Fitch.

- Fitch.

Seems to me that the Empress Hotel

and a couple other creep joints...

...they're Red Cross country.

I'll find her.

- Thank you, corporal.

- Thank you, sir.

- This is a grand way to live.

- This is even a better way to die.

Well, thanks for the toboggan ride,

corporal.

- But you really belong in a PT boat.

- My pleasure.

I'm just kind of sorry we didn't have

a flat tire or something, sir.

- Ma'am.

- Good night.

Well, when do we eat?
