Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
[offering beer] Anyone for any more?



Di Evans:
No, thank you.



Pvt. Don Evans:
[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.

Pvt. Mathews:
[discussing his escape plans with Horsfall and Evans] Why, all I have to do is stow away in one of those garbage bins or something. Why, it's as easy as kiss your...


[sees Mitchell approach]



Capt. Karel Hasek, alias Geoffrey Mitchell:
If you're planning an escape, Mathews, may I give you a piece of advice? Individual escapes hardly ever succeed. These things have to be very carefully planned and co-ordinated by a whole group.



Pvt. Mathews:
All the same, sir, I'm going to have a go at it. If you have no objections!



Capt. Karel Hasek, alias Geoffrey Mitchell:
Well... Good luck to you.


[walks off]



Pvt. Mathews:
Good luck... Two-faced bleeder.



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:
I don't know what it is, but there's something phony about that bloke.

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.

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



Cpl. Ted Horsfall:

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.
