General Count von Klugermann:
Take a look outside. See that? Revolution is just beneath the surface! If that happens, everything we stand for will be DESTROYED - unless the German officer corps stands like a rock, intact! And what is more important, untarnished. I made this Stachel into a national hero for good military reasons. If I court-martial him now, it will reflect on the integrity of the whole officer corps.



Otto Heidemann:
Herr General, I see now, I have notions of honor which are outdated.



General Count von Klugermann:
Ahh, they're not outdated!


[pause]



General Count von Klugermann:
Stored. With care, and love, for better times.

Willi von Klugermann:
By the way, Stachel... there's an impression around that... you care more about your unconfirmed kill than you do about Fabian's death.


[long pause]



Bruno Stachel:
Perhaps it's force of habit. In the trenches, we couldn't even bury the dead; there were too many of them. I've never had the time... to discuss them over a glass of champagne.

[about von Klugerman's kills]



Bruno Stachel:
You've got 18, haven't you?



Willi von Klugermann:
Squadron Rule #1, Stachel: Gentlemen never parade their military achievements.



Bruno Stachel:
Any rule against... saying how long it took you?



Willi von Klugermann:
I would say that was covered by the same rule, wouldn't you?



Bruno Stachel:
No. I wouldn't. How many rules are there?



Willi von Klugermann:
I don't know: none of them have been written down.

[Funeral for an enemy pilot]



Willi von Klugermann:
Well, aren't you coming? It's an order.



Bruno Stachel:
Why?



Willi von Klugermann:
Because our commanding officer has made it one. He believes in chivalry, Stachel.



Bruno Stachel:
Chivalry? To kill a man, then make a ritual out of saluting him - that's hypocrisy. They kill me, I don't want anyone to salute.



Willi von Klugermann:
They probably won't.

General Count von Klugermann:
Stachel. I want him brought to Berlin immediately.



Aide:
Yes, Herr General.



General Count von Klugermann:
There is some difficulty?



Aide:
Well, I don't know what you have in mind, Herr General, but, uh, with the offensive at its height, well, there'd have to be some legitimate excuse to order him to come.



General Count von Klugermann:
He's wounded, isn't he?



Aide:
Yes, Herr General.



General Count von Klugermann:
Hmm. A mentionable wound?



Aide:
Uh, in the arm.



General Count von Klugermann:
Good. The people like soldiers who were shot in the right places. Order Stachel to Berlin for special hospital treatment. I want you to ensure that all our newspapers give full prominence to this gallant episode - photographs, everything.
