Quotes from the Movie From Here to Eternity

Maybe back in the days of the pioneers a man could go his own way, but today you got to play ball.

Sgt. Warden

Karen, listen to me, listen.

Sgt. Warden

Yes, but not important they get signed today. Tomorrow's okay.

Sgt. Warden

I have copies at the office, so it won't be much work to fix 'em up.

Sgt. Warden

It's not confidence, ma'am; it's honesty. I just hate to see a beautiful woman going all to waste.

Sgt. Warden

I'm leaving. Isn't that what you want?

Sgt. Warden

What's the matter? What started all this, anyway? You think I'd be here if I thought it was a mistake? Taking a chance on 20 years in Leavenworth for making dates with the company commander's wife? And her acting like - like Lady Astor's horse, and all because I got here on time!

Sgt. Warden

Not even one? Out of all the men you've been kissed by?

Sgt. Warden

I wouldn't know. Can't you give me a rough estimate?

Sgt. Warden

You're crazy! I wish I didn't love ya; maybe I can enjoy life again.

Sgt. Warden

You won't see it much longer. I'm getting sick and tired of it myself. I'm through, Pete. Any day now. And I mean it.

Sgt. Warden

Listen, if Holmes let me, I'd transfer out of here tomorrow. Half a dozen companies in this regiment would grab me, and in grade, too.

Sgt. Warden

Where're you going, Little Sir Echo?

Sgt. Warden

Hurry up. We'll get some beer.

Sgt. Warden

Come back here, Sergeant. I'll tell you the story; you can take it back to the barracks with you. I'd only been married to Dana two years when I found out he was cheating. And by that time I was pregnant. I thought I had something to hope for. I was almost happy the night the pains began. I remember Dana was going to an officers' conference. I told him to get home early, to bring the doctor with him. And maybe he would have... if his "conference" hadn't been with a hat-check girl! He was drunk when he came in at 5 AM. I was lying on the floor. I begged him to go for the doctor, but he fell on the couch and passed out. The baby was born about an hour later. Of course it was dead. It was a boy. But they worked over me at the hospital, they fixed me up fine, they even took my appendix out - they threw that in free.
