Mrs. Barham:
...They're going to put up a monument on his grave.



Emily Barham:
What on earth for? All he did was die. Dear me, we shall be celebrating cancer and automobile smash-ups next.



Lt. Cmdr. 'Bus' Cummings:
[fervently] He didn't just die, Emily. He sacrificed his life.



Mrs. Barham:
That was very pagan of him.



Lt. Cmdr. 'Bus' Cummings:
He was the first American to die on Omaha Beach.

Was there a contest?

Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison:
You American haters bore me to tears, Ms. Barham. I've dealt with Europeans all my life. I know all about us parvenus from the States who come over here and race around your old Cathedral towns with our cameras and Coca-cola bottles... Brawl in your pubs, paw at your women, and act like we own the world. We over-tip, we talk too loud, we think we can buy anything with a Hershey bar. I've had Germans and Italians tell me how politically ingenuous we are, and perhaps so. But we haven't managed a Hitler or a Mussolini yet. I've had Frenchmen call me a savage because I only took half an hour for lunch. Hell, Ms. Barham, the only reason the French take two hours for lunch is because the service in their restaurants is lousy. The most tedious lot are you British. We crass Americans didn't introduce war into your little island. This war, Ms. Barham to which we Americans are so insensitive, is the result of 2,000 years of European greed, barbarism, superstition, and stupidity. Don't blame it on our Coca-cola bottles. Europe was a going brothel long before we came to town.

Well Sir, we wanted a hero. Now we've got one.

You don't send a man to his death because you want a hero.
