Dr. Erika Schumann: What is safe anymore? We used to have respect, used to have a life. Now... What are we? Huh. Just something to buy? Sell? Throw away? That's not what people are for.
[talking to Von Braun's scientists about living in the US]
Jeffrey Jones: I've traveled. Boy, have I traveled. Look, it's not the only place to live, but it stands for what you're looking for. It means being able to do what you want, being able to go where you want.
[looks at Phineas]
Phineas Bogg: Go on. You're doing fine.
Jeffrey Jones: And if you want to build rockets to go into space, well nobody but nobody can beat us. Why do you think we're winning this war?
Jeffrey Jones: Think I overdid it?
Phineas Bogg: [beams proudly] You've got my vote Senator.
Phineas Bogg: [to Von Braun] Somehow I'm going to see that you make it to the Americans. But I can't do that if one of your own people is sabotaging us every step of the say.
Phineas Bogg: I guess it's hard to think about leaving your country and starting all over again, huh?
Dr. Erika Schumann: It is.
Phineas Bogg: Well, this may not make very much sense right now, but believe me, if you and the others can get to the Americans; everything's going to be all right. You'll have a decent life.
Phineas Bogg: [to Von Braun over the radio, on eluding the Nazis] I can't promise you anything, but there's still a good chance you can get through.
Werner Von Braun: What are you talking about?
Phineas Bogg: I have a plan but we'll have to work fast. And I'll need your help Doctor. We're going to make the Nazi's think the Americans are attacking the village.
Werner Von Braun: You won't let go of me will you?
Phineas Bogg: You're the man. You've always been the man. Your people know it and you know it too.
