Gen. Leslie Groves: Are you a communist?
Gen. Leslie Groves: Have you ever been a communist?
Gen. Leslie Groves: Then why are half your friends communists?
J. Robert Oppenheimer: Not quite half.
J. Robert Oppenheimer: We had a very interesting study group this summer. Perhaps, too interesting. Much of it was Edward Teller taking us down some pretty strange paths. Have you met Edward, yet? Amazing man. At one point he stopped us cold with calculations that seemed to indicate the heat build-up in a fission explosion could cause a reaction between deuterium and nitrogen.
Gen. Leslie Groves: Meaning?
J. Robert Oppenheimer: We could set fire to the world's atmosphere.
Gen. Leslie Groves: My God!
J. Robert Oppenheimer: It's alright. Hans Bethe checked the figures and it seems Edward had been a little imprecise.
Gen. Leslie Groves: There's no chance?
J. Robert Oppenheimer: Oh, there's a chance, but, not as great as Edward thought.
Gen. Leslie Groves: There is a chance?
J. Robert Oppenheimer: Three in a million.
