Captain Klaus Woermann: Then what drives people out, in the middle of a rainy night?

Alexandru: Dreams?

Captain Klaus Woermann: Nightmares? Look, man, the real nightmares man has made upon other men in this war. The bad dreams of your Keep are nursery rhymes by comparison.

Captain Klaus Woermann: And what truth do you see? What are you discovering about yourself Kaempffer, uuh? "I murder all these people. Therefore, I must be powerful." And you smash them down only because that raises you up. It's a psychotic fantasy to escape the weakness and disease you sense in the core of your souls! You have scooped the most diseased psyches out of the German gutter! You have released the foulness that dwells in all men's minds! You have infected millions with your twisted fantasies! And from the millions of diseased mentalities that worship your twisted cross... what monstrosity has been released in this keep? Who are you meeting, Kaempffer, in the granite corridors of this keep?...

[pokes Kaempffer with his finger, whispers]

Captain Klaus Woermann: ... Yourself.

Major Kaempffer: Don't you talk to me about courage! Were you with the German anti-fascist fighting us in Spain? No! Did you stop the Einsatzkommando at Poznan? No! You have the debilitating German disease Woermann - Sentimental Talk! It allows you feel sensitive, superior, and yet stay safe because you take no action. Your sentimental suffering makes me sick!
