There was blood in his hair.

He was all alone.

That nearly finished my mother, you know.

Here we were in this

tiny town in England...

miles from Germany, from Russia,

from Italy, from any front lines...

and this man...

he had blood in his hair.

We were riding our bikes to school...

when the Germans started firing at us.

We jumped into a hedge.

We were terrified, but...

afterwards we couldn't stop laughing.

It feels now as if I'm the only one

who remembers that.

It's as vivid to me as if

it happened yesterday.

Oh, hi, Leonard.

It's Jane.

I decided to take an

impromptu trip to Ischia.

Or Ischia, as they pronounce it.

See, I'm learning a little bit.

Anyway, I'll be home later.

I hope you have a good day. Bye.

Those friends are all dead now.

There's no one left.

That's one of my regrets, you know.

Sometimes I think I should have

had more children...

not just your father.

You're all alone now that

your parents are gone.

No brothers, no sisters.

I'm upsetting you.

Let's talk about something else.

You want to ask me more boring questions

about the war?

All right then.

The castle?


He'd been shot through the neck.

The bullet went in one side

and came out the other.

And there were all these bomb

holes filled with water...

and he couldn't tell which

was the German side...

and which was the Allied side.

When he came home, after

something like that...

you couldn't really complain

- to him about anything...

- Hi.

- Now could you?

- I'm actually going there now.

To the castle.

- You speak English now?

- Yeah.

Why, did you think I was Italian?

- Yeah.

- Yes!

That's great, that's cool.

Hey, hey, hey.

Where are you from?

- London.

- No, in America, come on.

- Maine.

- No sh*t.

I'm from Massachusetts.
