  • Isn't it best to know what you're getting into... before you agree to get involved in it?
  • How I envy the young. For them everything is so clear. Things seem to be either one way or another. It is only with a little age that you begin to see life as a series of compromises. But even in compromising one must draw a line.
  • Such a waste. All that passion- for nothing.


  • I'm not a traitor. I just wised up. You will too.


  • You think that just because you're not doing it yourself, you're not a part of it? Well, I'm sick and tired of doing my part.


Arvid: I would rather belong to any one... ANYONE, than belong to the Nazis like you do.
Thomas Berger: That's because you have everything backwards. Nazis go where they want, do what they please, and everyone gets out of our way!
Arvid: Quiz time. Got your glasses on.
Thomas Berger: What?
Arvid: It means you don't know who your friends are.
