Over 75,000 tons of explosives
were dropped here.
British Lancasters by night,
American Fortresses by day.

Sure they did and I wish
they'd pay us for all those cannons.
Hey, quit juggling. Film like this

Pennecot, don't you want to see it?
Look at it.
Like pack rats been gnawing at a hunk
Miss Frost? Congresswoman Frost?

(2nd man) They ought to put in grass
and move in a herd of longhorn.
