Peter Penrose: How long do you think this blasted war is going on ?
Tiny Williams: Oh, years and years and years, I should think. Spring 1955 is my personal bet.


Peter Penrose: I'm afraid I'm strictly amateur.
Flight Lt. David Archdale: There aren't any amateurs and professionals anymore, just good pilots and bad pilots. The good pilots stay alive and the bad ones don't. And that's not true anymore either.
