[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.

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.

Bruno Stachel:
[resignedly] Well, I suppose I might as well say it.



Countess Kaeti von Klugermann:
Say what?



Bruno Stachel:
You're beautiful.

General Count von Klugermann:
I'm afraid it's rather a small medal, Willi, but it's the highest Germany can give.



Willi von Klugermann:
Thank you... Uncle

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Herr General, I see now, I have notions of honor which are outdated.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Ahh, they're not outdated!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.
