Cary Grant as Sgt. Archibald Cutter

  • (Cary Grant) "You're mad."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Mad? Mad. Hannibal was mad, Caesar was mad, and Napoleon surely was the maddest of the lot. Ever since time began, they've called mad all the great soldiers in this world. Mad? We shall see what wisdom lies within my madness. For this is but the spring that precedes the flood. From here we roll on. From village to town. From town to mighty city. Ever mounting, ever widening, until at last my wave engulfs all India."
  • (Cary Grant) "How can we get a nice little war going?"
  • (Sgt. 'Mac' MacChesney) "Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Cutter, you ain't leaving this village without my permission. Give me that bottle."
  • (Cary Grant) "MacChesney, I've been a soldier for fourteen years. I know my duties as well as you do. But you're not talking to a soldier now, you're talking to an expedition. I'm an expedition."
  • (Cary Grant) "Now you're all under arrest. Her Majesty's very touchy about having her subjects strangled."
  • (Cary Grant) "Now get me some tools. Something to rip these blinking bars out."
  • (Sam Jaffe) "Already bring all tools could find. Is this satisfactory, sahib?"
  • (Cary Grant) "Look -- What do you think I want to break out of; a bloomin' pudding? Now go on, get something big."
  • (Cary Grant) "What are you doing, Din?"
  • (Sam Jaffe) "The large tool you asked for, sahib."
  • (Cary Grant) "Is there no end to the torture that an Oriental mind can think of?"
  • (Cary Grant) "Eight feet away from where I'm sitting, right here, there's enough gold to make me sole owner and proprietor of a pub as big as the Crystal Palace. Best pub in Hampshire."

Eduardo Ciannelli as Guru

  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "You seem to think warfare an English invention. Have you never heard of Chandragupta Maurya? He slaughtered all the armies left in India by Alexander the Great. India was a mighty nation then while Englishmen still dwelt in caves and painted themselves blue."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Oh Thugs lift up your faces to the light that shines from Kali's throne."
  • (Unnamed) "Kali."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Oh brothers of Thuggee we are defenders of this earth. An immense hand is against us. We have been kicked, spat upon and driven to the hills like wild pigs. My father was a thug and he was hanged. His father was blown from the cannon's mouth. And what of your kinsmen, your fathers and their fathers and their father's fathers before them? Oh my brothers a new day is at hand. I have read the omens and they are good. Three nights ago a jackal screamed up on the left, another answered from the right at once."
  • (Unnamed) "Kali."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "What does that mean my brothers? It means that mother Kali with all her arms outstretched hugs us to her bosom. Welcoming us back as Thugs, Thugs awakened from a sleep of 50 years. Let the neophytes and their teachers draw near. Where are the stranglers?"
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Give them their strangling cloths."
  • (Unnamed) "Kali."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Give them their burial picks."
  • (Unnamed) "Kali."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Swear by our mother Kali to be thrice faithful to her and to me and to our order and to all of us."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Rise, our new-made brothers. Rise and kill. Kill, lest you be killed yourselves. Kill for the love of killing. Kill for the love of Kali. Kill. Kill. Kill."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "Chata, take him to the tower and teach him the error of false pride."
  • (Eduardo Ciannelli) "I want to know about your army."
  • (Cary Grant) "Why don't you enlist, mate?"
