Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Suppose I wanted to put a dead body in the sea, and let it float ashore, and have it accepted by the people who find it as the victim of an air crash at sea. What sort of body would I need?

Pam:
I think my alleged friend wants a light.



Lucy Sherwood:
Why am I always your "alleged friend"?



Pam:
George has never been quite sure that you exist.



Lucy Sherwood:
Oh, I exist all right. It's about all I do.



Lieutenant George Acres:
[lighting her cigarette] There's no doubt about that!



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
This is very interesting. From his attitude in the office, one would never suspect that George was such a fast worker.

Lieutenant George Acres:
You know, Monty, what we really want is something absolutely simple, the simpler the better.



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Good boy, George, you're absolutely right.



Lieutenant George Acres:
Well, how about this: suppose we issue Greek dictionaries to all the troops. Why should we do that unless we intend to invade Greece? That would fool them.



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
I should make it Eskimo dictionaries. That would really fool them.

Admiral Canaris:
Well?



German Officer:
There's nothing new from Madrid, Admiral. The Führer has told his conference that the documents are undoubtedly genuine.



Admiral Canaris:
You mean HE doesn't doubt them.



German Officer:
He's quite sure.



Admiral Canaris:
The Führer, of course, has certain advantages over mere intelligence officers like you and me, Frederick. He has his intuition, whereas we have to rely on our brains. And he's sure God is on his side.



German Officer:
But you are not?



Admiral Canaris:
I do not believe that God is on my side to the extent of sending me the enemy's plans.

Lieutenant George Acres:
Monty, that parachute that didn't open... Suppose we were to drop a fellow out of a plane over enemy territory, with papers on him saying we were going to invade Greece, and his parachute didn't open. The Germans would find him dead, and the papers, and "Aha," they'd say, "Look at this. Officer with secret papers, parachute didn't open... they're going to invade Greece."



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Do we tell the man who jumps that the parachute doesn't work, or is it a sort of practical joke that he finds out on the way down?



Lieutenant George Acres:
Well, of course it would have to be somebody you didn't mind much about.



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Are you volunteering? No, George, it wouldn't work.



Lieutenant George Acres:
What about using a man already dead?



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
The autopsy would show he was dead before he hit the ground. Let's get back to the office and think again.
