Chris (to Keller): You have such a talent for ignoring things
Chris: We're like a railroad station waiting for a train that never comes in.
Chris: Everything was being destroyed, see, but it seemed to be that one new thing was made. A kind of . . . responsibility.. . to bring that on to the earth again like some kind of monument
Chris: The whole thing to them was kind of a bus accident.
Kate: You don't realise how people can hate. . . they can hate so much they'll tear the world to pieces
Kate: We all got hit by the same lightning
George: He'd like to take every man who made money in the war and put him up against a wall
Chris: He'll need a lot of bullets
Kate: Your brother's alive, darling, because if he's dead, your father killed him
Joe: You lay forty years into a business and they knock you out in five minutes
Chris: I was dying every day and you were killing my boys and you did it for me?
Jim: every man does have a star. The star of one's honesty. And you spend your life groping for it, but once it's out it never lights again. . .
Joe: I'm his father and he's my son, and if there's something bigger than that I'll put a bullet in my head!
Chris: I could jail him, if I were human any more. But I'm like everybody else now.
Chris: This is the land of the great big dogs, you don't love a man here, you eat him! That's the principle; the only one we live by- it just happened to kill a few people this time, that's all.
Joe: It's dollar and cents, nickels and dimes, war and peace. . . Half the Goddam country is gotta go if I go!
Chris: I know you're no worse than most men but I thought you were better
Joe: Sure, he was my son. But I think to him they were all my sons. And I guess they were.
Kate: What more can we be!
Chris: You can be better! Once and for all you can know there's a universe of people outside and you're responsible to it
Kate: Everything that happened seems to be coming back
