: Received your message. We can hear you. Are you wounded? Repeat. Are you wounded? Are you bailing out? Peter
: What's your name? June
: June. Peter
: Yes June, I'm bailing out. I'm bailing out but there's a catch, I've got no parachute.
Doctor Frank Reeves
: Tell me, do you believe in the survival of human personality after death? Peter
: I thought you said you read my verses.
] Doctor Frank Reeves
: Do you? June
: I don't know, er, I'd never thought about it, do you? Doctor Frank Reeves
: I don't know, I've thought about it too much.
: Your smile is not unattractive, sir. Did you use it to enamor this young American lady? Peter
: I love her sir. Abraham Farlan
: Answer the question. Peter
: Would you repeat the question? It, erm, had "enamored" in it.
: You claim you love her. Peter
: I do love her! Abraham Farlan
: Can you prove it? Peter
: Well give me time, sir. Fifty years will do. Abraham Farlan
: But can you prove it? Peter
: Well, can a starving man prove he's hungry except by eating? Abraham Farlan
: Would you die for her? Peter
: I would, but, er, I'd rather live.
: Don't be upset about the parachute, I'll have my wings soon anyway, big white ones. I hope it hasn't gone all modern, I'd hate to have a prop instead of wings!
: [to dead radio operator
] So long, Bob. I'll see you in a minute. You'll know what we wear by now - a prop or wings!
: Look at her. Bob
: Holy smoke! She looks like a nice girl. Doctor Frank Reeves
: She is a nice girl. Bob
: Hardly your type, Skip. Peter
: I've fallen in love with her. Her accent is foreign, but it sounds sweet to me. We were born thousands of miles apart, but we were made for each other.
[waking up after operation
: Hello. June
: Hello. Peter
: We won. June
: I know darling.
: [over radio
] Where were you born? June
: Boston. Peter
: Mass.? June
: Yes. Peter
: That's a place to be born, history was made there. Are you in love with anybody? No, no don't answer that. June
: I could love a man like you, Peter. Peter
: I love you, June. You're life and I'm leaving you.
: [opening words, before faces shown on screen
] Request your position. Come in, Lancaster. Come in, Lancaster. Peter
: Position - nil, repeat nil. Age - 27, 27, did you get that? Very important. Education - interrupted, violently interrupted. Religion - Church of England. Politics - Conservative by nature, Labour by experience. What's your name?
: You are determined to get me into this... salade. Peter
: And what about the salad you got me into?
: "Give me my scallop-shell of quiet, My staff of faith to walk upon, My scrip of joy, immortal diet, My bottle of salvation, My gown of glory, hope's true gage; And thus I'll take my pilgrimage." Sir Walter Raleigh wrote that. I'd rather have written that than flown through Hitler's legs!
: June, are you pretty? June
: Not bad. Peter
: Can you hear me as well as I hear you? June
: Yes. Peter
: You've got a good voice. You've got guts too. It's funny - I've known dozens of girls: I've been in love with some of them, but an American girl whom I've never seen and who I never shall see will hear my last words. That's funny. It's rather sweet. Peter
: June, if you're around when they pick me up, turn your head away?
: [On the Stairway to Heaven, passing by various statues representing important figures in history, points to a statue of Abraham Lincoln
] What about him? Peter
: Lincoln? No, it's hardly fair to drag him in. I don't believe *he'd* be prejudiced. Conductor 71
: Plato. How would you like to be defended by Plato? Nobody knew more about reasoning than Plato. Peter
: He was eighty-one when he died, he might be too old to think love important. Conductor 71
: You think so? Anyhow, Plato had very elementary ideas about love. Peter
: Besides, didn't he quote Sophocles when somebody asked him if he was still able to appreciate a woman? Conductor 71
: What did the old boy say? Peter
: Well, he said, uh, "I'm only too glad to be rid of all that. It's like escaping from bondage to a raving madman." Conductor 71
] These Greeks, cold as their marble. Now, if he had been French... Richelieu, for example, irresistible at eighty. How *about* Richelieu? Peter
: No, I never liked him much in "The Three Musketeers".
