Scene One: An Argument in the Desert

Archie: 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. 
Archie: What? 
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.
