What do you think, Jan?

: There's only one place - here. We kill him there as he comes around Holsavitza Junction.
- Jan Kubis
But he's heavily guarded all the time!
- Anna
He slows down!
- Jan Kubis
If it was peacetime, suddenly, now...what would you do?
- Jan Kubis
I'd go out and buy a dress. A bright, red dress made of silk.
- Anna
I'd see a good football match. Maybe get drunk afterwards.
- Jan Kubis
I never did get that red dress.
- Anna
And I never saw that football match.
- Jan Kubis
