  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    What is your first name, Miss Cannon?

  • 'Johnny' Cannon  

    Angela.

  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    What a lovely name. It comes from Angel, doesn't it?

  • 'Johnny' Cannon  

    I think it stinks. My friends call me Johnny.

  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    You know that, after the war, we had very bad years in germany. We got poorer and poorer. Every day retired officers or schoolteachers were caught shoplifting. Money lost its value, the price of everything rose except of human beings. We read in the newspapers that the after-war years were bad everywhere, that crime was increasing and that honest citizens were having a hard job to put the gangsters in jail. Well in Germany, the gangsters finally succeeded in putting the honest citizens in jail.

  • Clive Candy  

    Are you mad? I know what war is!

  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    I don't agree. I read your broadcast up to the point where you describe the collapse of France. You commented on Nazi methods, foul fighting, bombing refugees, machine-gunning hospitals, lifeboats, lightships, bailed-out pilots, by saying that you despised them, that you would be ashamed to fight on their side and that you would sooner accept defeat than victory if it could only be won by those methods.

  • Clive Candy  

    So I would.

  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    Clive! If you let yourself be defeated by them, just because you are too fair to hit back the same way they hit at you, there won't be any methods BUT Nazi methods! If you preach the Rules of the Game while they use every foul and filthy trick against you, they will laugh at you! They think you're weak, decadent! And if you lose there won't be a return match next year, perhaps not even for a hundred years!

  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    You mustn't mind me, an old alien, saying all this. But who can describe hydrophobia better than one who has been bitten - and is now immune.

  • Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff  

    Do you remember, Clive, we used to say: "Our army is fighting for our homes, our women, and our children"? Now the women are fighting beside the men. The children are trained to shoot. What's left is the "home." But what is the "home" without women and children?

  • Hoppy  

    I was awfully sorry to hear about your leg.

  • Hoppy  

    Jumping Jehosaphat! They're both there!

  • Clive Candy  

    What the hell did you think I was standing on?

  • Hoppy  

    They told me in Bloemfontein that they cut off your left leg.

  • Clive Candy  

    Can't have, old boy. I'd have known about it.
