Quotes from the Movie Flyboys

Reports can be filed. But you want justice? You are the man in the sky. You are the man with the gun.

Captain Thenault

We don't want you bringing bullets home; we have millions. [Points at the sky] Leave the bullets up there. Let the Germans take them home.

Captain Thenault

Use of French military aircraft for personal purposes is strictly forbidden! The report I have says that you repeatedly made flights into and out of German-held territory to fly out several French civilians, while being shot at by both infantry and anti-aircraft cannons. Busy night. I have here papers recommending your court-martial. I have contacted headquarters in Paris and they agree with my recommendation completely, so it won't do you any good to go over my head! [Setting aside the papers, Thenault pins a Croix de Guerre with Bronze Palm on Rawlings' uniform] Congratulations, Rawlings. And don't ever do that again.

Captain Thenault

Some day it'll just end. Everyone will go home, get on with their lives. Tall grass will cover the battlefields. And all the pilots we've lost won't mean a damn thing.

Reed Cassidy

I mean any intelligent questions.

Captain Thenault

Yes, sir. Will we be back by lunch.

Eddie Beagle

Sorry. Just trying to loosen things up.
