Pvt. Mathews:
[having a hard time adjusting to POW life after two months] What a sucker I was, joining the ruddy Army. I pictured myself cutting it loose with some roundie old French dames. And here I am, shut up in this place until I'll be past it.



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
You should have joined the Navy and let the world see you.


[gently]



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
Now son, it's no use you blowing off. Take things as you find them. That's always been my motto. And the way I look at it...



Pvt. Mathews:
Awwww. Drip! Drip! Drip! You burn me up. You're worse than a woman!



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
[warning] Now, knock it sonny. I was swinging a rifle when your nappies were swinging on the line

Pvt. Don Evans:
[writing a letter home] How do you spell "sufficient"?

[offering beer] Anyone for any more?

[looks at clock] It's nearly twelve. We've got to be at the depot at seven.


[motions to his wife]



Pvt. Don Evans:
Come on home.



Flo Horsfall:
We'll have them both back before you can turn around. The war will be over by Christmas.



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
The war will be over by Christmas. Where have I heard *that* before?



Pvt. Don Evans:
[indicates sign for their construction business] It's a shame we've got to close the business, Ted.



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
Why, it's this habit we've gotten into; fighting the same war every twenty years.



Flo Horsfall:
Nasty habit too.

The Chaplain:
[awaits news about his prospective eye operation. Sits up as he hears the Padre come out of a room with a German doctor] Well, lad, it's me again.



Lt. David Lennox:
Yes, Padre?



The Chaplain:
David... They can't operate.



Lt. David Lennox:
[stunned] Not... ever?



The Chaplain:
No, David.



Lt. David Lennox:
I won't ever see again?


[gets upset]



Lt. David Lennox:
I don't believe it. It's that German doctor! When I get back to Scotland...



The Chaplain:
No! David, it's no use. You've got to face it.



Lt. David Lennox:
I'll not need this any more.


[removes bandages from around eyes]



The Chaplain:
You feel now there's nothing left to live for. And that feeling will go on for a long time. But then you'll begin to remember things that are left. You'll begin to realize that this darkness of yours is not absolute. David, the things that make life worthwhile for all of us -kindness, affection, companionship. The loss of your sight can never rob you of those things, David. We're your friends here. We offer you our help and understanding. And waiting to welcome you home, when all this is over, are your own folk who love you.

Lt. Stephen Harley:
[as Christmas of 1940 approaches] Last Christmas I had my first concert. It was where I met Caroline.



Capt. Karel Hasek, alias Geoffrey Mitchell:
Last Christmas I was in Dachau Concentration Camp. Christmas Eve a new batch of prisoners came in. One of them brought me news of my family. They'd been caught giving food to a Polish Jew. They were taken out and shot. My father, my mother, all of them.
