From Downfall (2004)
Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel: The Führer has lost all sense of reality.
Generaloberst Alfred Jodl: He moves divisions that only exist on his map. Steiner's scattered unit can hardly defend itself and yet, Steiner is ordered to attack! It's pure madness!
SS-Gruppenführer Hermann Fegelein: Then why don't you tell him yourself?
Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel: He won't listen to reason. You should know that.
SS-Gruppenführer Hermann Fegelein: Something must be done.
Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel: Are you insane? We'll be thrown out like Rundstedt and Guderian!
SS-Gruppenführer Hermann Fegelein: Yes, and?
Generaloberst Alfred Jodl: [glares at Fegelein] We are soldiers! We pledged our allegiance to the Führer!
SS-Gruppenführer Hermann Fegelein: So that means we are no longer allowed to think?
General der Infanterie Wilhelm Burgdorf: All this coming from you? An opportunist? A ruthless careerist?
