War Horse (2011)
Albert Narracott: We'll be alright Joey. We're the lucky ones, you and me. Lucky since the day I met you.
Emilie: And you've never done a brave thing in your life?
Grandfather: Maybe there are different ways to be brave. Did you know the French have the best carrier pigeons? And this could be the difference in the war - our messages getting through.
Emilie: I don't want to hear about the birds.
Grandfather: They are released at the front and told to go home - this is all they know. But to get there they must fly over war. Can you imagine such a thing? Here you are flying over so much pain and terror - and you know you can never look down. You have to look forward or you'll never get home. I ask you - what could be braver than that?
Rose Narracott: [to Ted] I might hate you more, but I'll never love you less.
Michael: The food in Italy is good, yeah?
Gunther: [nods] Yes, very good.
Michael: And the women?
Gunther: Not as good as the food...
Michael: From eating too much of the food?
Rose Narracott: [stopping her husband from taking a drink] Some days are best forgotten. Today ain't one of them.
Maj. Jamie Stewart: What are you up to?
Capt. Nicholls: I'm writing a letter.
Maj. Jamie Stewart: With a picture in it?
Capt. Nicholls: It's to the boy who owned Joey. I want to show him how wonderful he's looking.
Maj. Jamie Stewart: Before we take him across the channel to face a million German guns.
Capt. Nicholls: Yes, before that.
Base Camp Officer: [capturing Maj. Stewart and his soldiers in their attack on a German camp after its thick defenses defeat them] What? You think a garrison on open grounds would go UNDEFENDED? Look at yourself! Who do you think you are?
Capt. Nicholls: [to Albert, on buying Joey] I promise you, that I'll look after him as closely as you've done, I'll respect him and all the care that you've taken with him. And if I can, I'll return him to your care.
Ted Narracott: There are big days and there are small days, which will it be?
