Butch Engle (to a frustrated Homer Parrish): "...Give 'em time, kid -- they'll catch on. You know your folks'll get used to you, and you'll get used to them. Then everything'll settle down nicely. Unless we have another war. Then none of us have to worry because we'll all be blown to bits the first day. So cheer up, huh?"
Al Stephenson (justifying a bank loan he approved to a customer with no collateral to his boss): "...You see, Mr. Milton, in the Army I've had to be with men when they were stripped of everything in the way of property except what they carried around with them and inside them. I saw them being tested. Now some of them stood up to it, and some didn't. But you got so you could tell which ones you could count on. I tell you this man Novak is okay. His 'collateral' is in his hands, in his heart and his guts. It's in his right as a citizen."
Homer Parrish (showing Wilma how he prepares for bed by removing his prosthetics and wiggling into his pajama top): "...I'm lucky. I have my elbows. Some of the boys don't. But I can't button them up." Wilma Cameron: "I'll do that, Homer." Homer Parrish: "This is when I know I'm helpless. My hands are down there on the bed. I can't put them on again without calling to somebody for help. I can't smoke a cigarette or read a book. If that door should blow shut, I can't open it and get out of this room. I'm as dependent as a baby that doesn't know how to get anything except to cry for it. Well, now you know, Wilma. Now you have an idea of what it is. I guess you don't know what to say. It's alright. Go on home. Go away like your family said." Wilma Cameron: "I know what to say, Homer. I love you and I'm never going to leave you... never." (smooch)
Marie Derry: "...What do you think I was doing all those years?" Fred Derry: "I don't know, babe, but I can guess." Marie Derry: "Go ahead. Guess your head off. I could do some guessing myself. What were you up to in London and Paris and all those places? I've given you every chance to make something of yourself. I gave up my own job when you asked me. I gave up the best years of my life, and what have you done? You flopped! Couldn't even hold that job at the drugstore. So I'm going back to work for myself and that means I'm gonna live for myself too. And in case you don't understand English, I'm gonna get a divorce. What have you got to say to that?" Fred Derry: "Don't keep Cliff waiting."
