Sgt. Markoff:"If I could only afford to waste them all."
Sgt. Markoff:"Armed attack on a superior in the face of the enemy! I court-martial you myself! I find you guilty and I sentence you to death! You'll get six in the belly!"
Sgt. Markoff:"Discipline makes the strength of armies. It is necessary that superiors obtain from their subordinates immediate obedience without murmuring."
Sgt. Markoff:"Everybody does his duty at Zinderneuf! Dead or alive!"
Beau Geste:"There'll be a flag flying out there in the morning that I swore to uphold. Armies of good men have died for it gladly. It's a battle flag and it's a flag of victory. I'm rather proud to be under it. And I wouldn't want to go out in the morning like you and know that I was going to be a traitor to it!"
Sgt. Markoff:"The rest of the bullets you stop won't hurt as much as that first one."
Sgt. Markoff:"I'm going to give you a lesson in putting down an attempted mutiny that will be the last thing you ever see."
Sgt. Markoff:"And now, you scum, it's my turn."
Beau Geste:"I don't know much about mutinies, but I do know it isn't good form to plan them at the top of your voice."
Sgt. Markoff:"I promise you!"
Sgt. Markoff:"I promise you."
Sgt. Markoff:"I am Sergeant Markoff. I make soldiers out of scum like you, and I don't do it gently. You're the sloppiest looking lot I've ever seen. It's up to me to prevent you from becoming a disgrace to the Regiment. And I will prevent that if I have to kill half of you with work. But the half that lives will be soldiers. I promise you!"
