Lieutenant Hooper (Character)
from "Brideshead Revisited" (1981)
[at Brideshead Hall during the army's occupation of it in World War II]
Lieutenant Hooper: Did you say you knew this place before?
Charles Ryder: Yes. Very well. It belongs to friends of mine.
Lieutenant Hooper: It doesn't make any sense. One family in a place this size - what's the use of it?
Charles Ryder: I suppose Brigade find it useful.
Lieutenant Hooper: That's not what it's built for, though, is it?
Charles Ryder: No, it's *not* what it was built for. Maybe that's one of the pleasures of building. Like having a son. Wondering how he'll grow up. I don't know. I've never built anything. And I've forfeited the right to watch my son grow up. I'm homeless, childless, middle-aged and loveless.
