General Broulard:
Colonel Dax, I'm going to have ten men from each company in your regiment tried under penalty of death for cowardice.
Colonel Dax:
Penalty of death? - For cowardice!
General Broulard:
They've skim milk in their veins instead of blood.
Colonel Dax:
It's the reddest milk I've ever seen. My trenches are soaked with it!

Transcript:

00:00:00.095 --> 00:00:04.995
The fact remains that a good part of your men never left their own trenches.
00:00:05.079 --> 00:00:08.915
Colonel Dax, I'm going to have 10 men from each company in your regiment...
00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:11.096
tried under penalty of death for cowardice.
00:00:12.044 --> 00:00:14.379
- Penalty of death? - For cowardice!
00:00:14.463 --> 00:00:16.673
They have skimmed milk in their veins instead of blood.
00:00:16.757 --> 00:00:19.759
Then it's the reddest milk I've ever seen. My trenches are soaked with that red skimmed milk.
00:00:19.885 --> 00:00:22.887
- That’s just about enough out of you, Colonel! - I'm not gonna mince words and stand on protocol -
00:00:22.972 --> 00:00:25.849
Colonel Dax, if you continue in this manner, I shall have to place you under arrest.
00:00:25.933 --> 00:00:28.935
I believe the colonel has a point, even though he makes it rather bluntly.
00:00:29.002 --> 00:00:31.896
This is not a trial, but it does bear certain aspects of one.
00:00:31.981 --> 00:00:35.358
And Colonel Dax, technically, is cast in the role of the defense.
00:00:35.443 --> 00:00:37.193
In view of the gravity of the charges...
00:00:37.278 --> 00:00:40.113
a court of law would grant him all possible latitude in presenting his case.
00:00:40.197 --> 00:00:43.491
Latitude is one thing. Insubordination another.
00:00:43.576 --> 00:00:47.787
I am merely offering an opinion, General. Please do not feel constrained to accept it.
00:00:47.872 --> 00:00:51.708
I am perfectly willing to accept it, General Broulard.
00:00:51.792 --> 00:00:55.337
I'm sorry, sir. I certainly didn't intend to be insubordinate.
00:00:55.421 --> 00:00:58.548
My only aim is to remind you of the heroism these men have shown...
00:00:58.632 --> 00:01:00.675
on every occasion in the past.
