Emperor Wilhelm: I take it the ladies are all over you.
Manfred von Richthofen: There aren't many ladies at 10,000 feet, your majesty.

Manfred von Richthofen: And whatever side we fought, we all knew the risks we took. I wanted to be the best, I wanted to win and I thought I won. But I can see now, Kate. I see we've turned our world into a damn slaughterhouse. And I'm already too big a part of it. They're using my photograph to give hope where there is none. They use my name to feign immortality, whereas the reality is annihilation.

Baron Von Richthofen: I will not hide from anyone. We are bold and we will let them know it. Just paint it!

Baron Von Richthofen: I will make it a priority to deny them the pleasure of filming my death. I believe the heart of the matter is very simple. To shoot down the cameraman first.


Von Richthofen and Brown (1971)
Reporter: You started the war as a cavalry officer, yeah?
Baron Manfred von Richthofen: Yeah.
Reporter: So, now, how does it feel to fly? To fight in the sky?
Baron Manfred von Richthofen: My ancestors were Teutonic knights; I've merely exchanged my horse for an airplane.
Reporter: [laughing] I see, so the flying is just a means to an end?
Baron Manfred von Richthofen: The flying is wonderful! But it's the hunt that I find most satisfying: the stalking, the chase, and finally the kill. The climax.
Reporter: Oh, so you enjoy it sir?
Baron Manfred von Richthofen: What should I say? War is the father of nations. It makes them slaves or it makes them free. Victory brings with it a climax, a sense of fulfillment.
Reporter: But the danger! Every day, every minute! While you are in the air...
Baron Manfred von Richthofen: I never think of it. It's like the weather: always there. But when you hunt, you think about your hunting, don't you?


"Blackadder Goes Forth: Private Plane (#1.4)" (1989)
Baron von Richthoven: Ah, and the Lord Flasheart. This is indeed an honour. Finally, the two greatest gentleman fliers in the world meet. Two men of honour, who have jousted together in the cloud-strewn glory of the skies, face to face at last. How often I have rehearsed this moment of destiny in my dreams. The panoply to encapsulate the unspoken nobility of a comradeship.
[Flasheart shoots von Richthoven]
Lord Flasheart: What a poof!
