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.

[The military needs a dead body for counterintelligence.]



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
I can assure you that this is an opportunity for your son to do a great thing for England.



The Father:
My son, sir, was a Scotsman. Very proud of it.



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
I beg your pardon?



The Father:
Never mind. We're used to that. You English always talk about England when you mean Britain.

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.

Admiral Canaris:
Well?



German Officer:
There's nothing new from Madrid, Admiral. The F├╝hrer 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 F├╝hrer, 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.
