General Mireau:
I can't understand these armchair officers, fellas trying to fight a war from behind a desk, waving papers at the enemy, worrying about whether a mouse is gonna run up their pants leg.
Colonel Dax:
I don't know, General. If I had the choice between mice and Mausers, I think I'd take the mice every time.

Transcript:

00:00:02.526 --> 00:00:04.569
Well, that's the way I am, you know, Dax.
00:00:04.653 --> 00:00:07.572
I can't understand these armchair officers...
00:00:07.656 --> 00:00:09.783
fellows trying to fight a war from behind a desk...
00:00:09.867 --> 00:00:11.785
waving papers at the enemy...
00:00:11.869 --> 00:00:14.954
worrying about whether a mouse is going to run up their pants leg.
00:00:15.039 --> 00:00:17.916
I don't know, General. If I had the choice between mice and Mausers...
00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:19.918
I think I'd take the mice every time.
00:00:20.989 --> 00:00:21.092
You'll never make me believe that, Colonel.
00:00:22.013 --> 00:00:24.464
Seriously though, if a man's a ninny...
00:00:24.548 --> 00:00:26.925
let him put on a dress and hide under the bed.
00:00:27.003 --> 00:00:30.136
But if he wants to be a soldier, then, by heavens, he's got to be one.
00:00:30.221 --> 00:00:33.306
He's got to fight, and he can't do that unless he's where the fighting is.
00:00:33.039 --> 00:00:35.433
That's my credo.
00:00:35.518 --> 00:00:38.077
I think I have to agree with you, presenting your case so convincingly, sir.
00:00:38.854 --> 00:00:41.064
And you've never failed to live up to it, sir.
00:00:41.148 --> 00:00:43.441
- I imagine you'd like a look around, wouldn't you? - Yes, Colonel.
00:00:43.526 --> 00:00:46.001
Well, here's something to see.
00:00:46.112 --> 00:00:49.405
The Anthill. About as good a view as you can get without actually being there.
00:00:49.049 --> 00:00:51.783
Well, that won't be long now, will it?
00:00:54.745 --> 00:00:57.539
Ah.
00:00:57.623 --> 00:00:59.541
Ah. Yeah.
00:01:00.626 --> 00:01:04.017
Well, I've seen much more formidable objectives.
