Corporal William G. 'Bill' Smollett II: He wanted me to be a general.
Jane Deborah Hilton: But didn't you want to be a general?
Corporal William G. 'Bill' Smollett II: Well, no I didn't.
Jane Deborah Hilton: But why not, Bill?
Corporal William G. 'Bill' Smollett II: I had an idea it was more important to build things. But, I don't mean it isn't terribly important being a soldier. I don't know how we'd keep the things we build without them.

But he gave it back to me again when I entered the Academy. Aw, Jane, I did my best, but I could never make a good officer. I can't lead men, and I know it, so even if I led my class the way Grandpa thought I should -
Mark Elliott: Are we going swimming?
Dr. Han Suyin: Mark, going out with you once was harmless enough. I don't want my seeing you to be awkward. Hong Kong has a peculiar code and malice is a pleasant pastime for women with nothing to do.
