"V" (1983)
Lynn Bernstein: [reading Abraham's farewell letter written before his capture by The Visitors] "My dear family: It's painful knowing that I'll not see your faces anymore. But I must take this stand for what I know is right. You may think that an old man wouldn't be afraid to die, but this old man is very frightened. I'm hoping that I'll find a little of your mother's dignity and strength. So far, I'm as frightened as a child who fears the dark. But we must fight the darkness that is threatening to engulf us. Each of us must be a ray of hope and do our part and join with the others till we've become a blinding light, triumphant over darkness. Until that task is accomplished, life will have no meaning. More than anything, you must remember which side you're on and fight for it. You mother and I will march beside you, holding hands again. We'll sing your song of victory. You'll feel us in your hearts. Our spirit..."
Stanley Bernstein: "Our spirits will be with you always. And our love." We have to help, or else we won't have learned a thing.

[Abraham is hiding the Maxwell family in the pool house]
Stanley Bernstein: I really don't believe you brought them here.
Abraham Bernstein: They have nowhere to go. Their house is being watched now.
Stanley Bernstein: And so is ours! By Daniel! Tell them that we're sorry...
Abraham Bernstein: Stanley, you don't understand. They have to stay. They need a place to hide!
Stanley Bernstein: And why is that?
Abraham Bernstein: Because the father is a scientist.
Stanley Bernstein: And therefore suspect! And a fugitive, I take it, which would make them doubly dangerous.
Abraham Bernstein: They have to stay.
Stanley Bernstein: And I'm telling you to get them out, before I...
Abraham Bernstein: I won't.
Stanley Bernstein: Then I will!
Abraham Bernstein: [shouts] No, you won't! We had to put you in a suitcase. In a suitcase! You were eight months old. That's how we smuggled you out.
Stanley Bernstein: I know the story!
Abraham Bernstein: No, you don't! You don't. Your mother, auv shalom... your mother didn't have a heart attack in the boxcar. She made it with me, to the camp. I can still see her, standing naked in the freezing cold. Her beautiful black hair was gone. They'd shaved her head. I can still see her waving to me, as they marched her off with the others to the showers - the showers with no water. Perhaps, if somebody had given us a place to hide... don't you see, Stanley? They have to stay. Or else, we haven't learned a thing!
