Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
I'm not afraid of dying tomorrow, only of getting killed.
soldier in bunk:
That's as clear as mud.
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
Well, which would you rather be done in by: a bayonet or a machine gun?
soldier in bunk:
Oh, a machine gun, naturally.
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
Naturally, that's just my point. They're both pieces of steel ripping into your guts, only the machine gun is quicker, cleaner, and less painful, isn't it?
soldier in bunk:
Yeah, but what does that prove?
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
That proves that most of us are more afraid of getting hurt than of getting killed. Look at Bernard. He panics when it comes to gas. Gas doesn't bother me a bit. He's seen photos of gas cases. Doesn't mean anything to me. But I'll tell you something though, I'd hate like the devil to be without my tin hat. But on the other hand I don't mind not having a tin hat for my tail. Why is that?
soldier in bunk:
You're darn tootin', because...
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
Because I know a wound to the head would hurt much more than one to the tail. The tail is just meat but the head- ah, the head is all bone.
soldier in bunk:
That's...
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
Tell me this. Aside from the bayonet, what are you most afraid of?
soldier in bunk:
High explosives.
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
Exactly, and it's the same with me, because, because I know that it can chew you up worse than anything else. Look, just like I'm trying to tell you, if you're really afraid of dying you'd be living in a funk all the rest of your life because you know you've got to go someday, anyday. And besides...
soldier in bunk:
Yes?
Pvt. Pierre Arnaud:
If it's death that you're really afraid of why should you care about what it is that kills you?
soldier in bunk:
Oh, you're too smart for me, Professor. All I know is, nobody wants to die.

Transcript:

00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:05.918
I'm not afraid of dying tomorrow, only of getting killed.
00:00:06.001 --> 00:00:07.067
That's as clear as mud.
00:00:07.755 --> 00:00:10.798
Which would you rather be done in by, a bayonet or a machine gun?
00:00:10.883 --> 00:00:13.509
- Oh, a machine gun, naturally. - Naturally. That’s just my point.
00:00:13.594 --> 00:00:15.072
They're both pieces of steel ripping into your guts.
00:00:15.804 --> 00:00:18.639
Only the machine gun is quicker, cleaner and less painful, isn't it?
00:00:18.724 --> 00:00:20.058
What does that prove?
00:00:20.142 --> 00:00:23.269
That proves that most of us are more afraid of getting hurt than of getting killed.
00:00:23.353 --> 00:00:25.001
Look at Bernard.
00:00:25.105 --> 00:00:28.149
He panics when it comes to gas, but gas doesn't bother me a bit.
00:00:28.233 --> 00:00:31.569
He's seen photos of gas cases. Doesn't mean anything to me.
00:00:31.653 --> 00:00:35.073
But I'll tell you something though - I'd hate like the devil to be without my tin hat.
00:00:35.157 --> 00:00:38.999
But on the other hand, I don't mind not having a tin hat for my tail.
00:00:38.118 --> 00:00:40.003
- Why's that? - You ought to. That's where your brains are.
00:00:40.162 --> 00:00:43.001
Because I know a wound to the head will hurt much more than one in the tail.
00:00:43.123 --> 00:00:45.833
The tail is just meat, but the head - ah, the head is all bone.
00:00:45.918 --> 00:00:48.294
- Ah, speak for yourself. - Tell me this.
00:00:48.378 --> 00:00:50.088
Aside from the bayonet, what are you most afraid of?
00:00:50.964 --> 00:00:53.174
- High explosives. - Exactly! And it's the same with me.
00:00:53.258 --> 00:00:56.026
Because - Because I know that it can chew you up worse than anything else.
00:00:56.345 --> 00:00:58.304
Look, it’s just like I'm trying to tell you.
00:00:58.388 --> 00:01:00.089
If you're really afraid of dying, you'd be living in a funk all the rest of your life...
00:01:00.974 --> 00:01:03.351
because you know you've got to go someday, any day.
00:01:03.435 --> 00:01:05.999
And besides, if it's death that you're really afraid of...
00:01:05.938 --> 00:01:08.001
why should you care about what it is that kills you?
00:01:08.232 --> 00:01:12.527
Ah, you're too smart for me, Professor. All I know is nobody wants to die.
00:01:21.062 --> 00:01:24.372
Through to Division, sir. Through to Polygon.
00:01:24.456 --> 00:01:28.209
Everything quiet. All units report themselves ready.
00:01:28.001 --> 00:01:30.962
Zero-minus two.
00:01:31.006 --> 00:01:32.964
May I offer you gentlemen some cognac?
00:01:33.002 --> 00:01:35.007
- Thank you, General. - Thank you, sir.
00:01:38.303 --> 00:01:40.721
After you, sir.
00:01:41.089 --> 00:01:44.517
To France.
00:03:24.999 --> 00:03:27.001
Minus 15, 14...
00:03:27.001 --> 00:03:30.989
13, 12...
00:03:30.999 --> 00:03:32.208
11, 10...
00:03:32.292 --> 00:03:35.001
nine, eight, seven...
00:03:35.999 --> 00:03:38.422
six, five, four...
00:03:38.001 --> 00:03:41.001
three, two, one...
00:03:41.999 --> 00:03:44.887
zero!
