Scene One: An Argument in the DesertArchie: Can you ride Frank?
Frank: Yeah, why?
Archie: Just wondering why you didn't try for the lighthorse.
Frank: Didn't want to.
Archie: What are you going to join, the infantry?
Frank: I'm not joining anything.
Archie: But you've gotta be in it.
Frank: Don't have to if you don't want to.
Archie: You gotta be.
Frank: No I don't, it's a free country or haven't you heard.
Archie: I'd be ashamed of myself if I didn't fight.
Frank: That only proves one thing, that you and I are different, let's drop it, eh?
|Archie: You of all people should be going.
Frank: Why me of all people?
Archie: Because you're an athlete.
Frank: Ha, what's that got to do with it?
Archie: I've got mates who'd be lucky to run the hundred in twelve and they're gonna do their bit. So why shouldn't you?
Frank: Because it's not our bloody war.
Archie: What do you mean, not our war?
Frank: It's an English war, it's got nothing to do with us.
Archie: You know what you are? You're a bloody coward.
Frank: There's only one reason I haven't knocked you down, mate.
Frank: Because I don't feel like carrying you to the next bloody waterhole. Now shut up and don't open your yap about the bloody war again.
