[Young Thomas enters the house in his oversized uniform] What are you wearing ? That's not Youth Movement!
No - it's the People's Army. All able bodied men between sixteen and sixty have been conscripted.
But you're only fourteen! [Thomas shrugs passively, Melanie is alarmed]
[interupting] A couple of years makes no difference. You know yourself that all the sixteen year olds have gone already!
[Thomas and Dennis meet in Trafalgar Square]... I did everything for the Common Cause. I had a blind loyalty to the struggle.
To understand loyalty you need to experience betrayal.
When were you betrayed ?
I don't remember - it was too long ago!
'62', it's important to remember who you are - not what you are!
[Thomas and Dennis have their final meeting] Before I left for England I was briefed about a man called Steiner?
Albert Steiner. Steiner wasn't a conspirator or a revolutionary - just a lonely defector; the lowest form of currency in this war. I don't know whether he's alive or dead, but as long as his fate remains unknown -the concept of 'Steinerism' is a threat! The enemy within which both sides crave! [shrugs] Maybe that makes me an 'agent of Steiner'.
[Young Thomas sees Melanie walking through the park. He runs from the football game to catch her up. She is reading an American comic book] What's that - can I see it ? [she passes the comic to him, he flicks through the pages in awe]
Hans Schaffer sent it to me. He swapped a pack of cigarettes for it with an American prisoner he caught.
[flicking through the pages] This is fantastic! Can I borrow it ?
[she takes the comic back] No, but you may have it - so long as you have something to swap for it! [she walks off with a smile leaving Thomas standing]
[Thousands of weary refugees trudge through the deep snow of the road. Young Thomas and Astrid join the trek. They are shocked at the size of the exodus. Astrid stops a woman] Excuse me, where does this road lead?
It leads westwards, to Frankfurt I think. [the woman shivers walking on]
[Astrid turns to Thomas who is looking around. They walk on] I've got relatives in Leipzig, Thomas. I think so long as we head West, we'll be safe. Even if we fall into British or American hands. [they pick up the pace, looking about apprehensive at the long column of misery]
