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.

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 Commander Ewen Montagu:
Now, about dates. There's got to be something on him that will show when he left. I think I can fix to get a receipted bill from the Naval and Military Club -- he stayed there on his last night.



Lieutenant George Acres:
And he went to the theatre. Final celebration. He has the stubs of the tickets in his pocket.



Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Item: two theatre tickets.



Lieutenant George Acres:

German Officer:

Admiral Canaris:
