Now that the war is over,

may i call you 'father' again?

Gentlemen If you please

your attention for a moment?

A toast, gentlemen

To those of our comrades

who are not here tonight

those to whom peace came sooner than to us

and to the same comrades of the

French, Italian, English and Americans

to the comrades-living and dead, of all men

Funny how every bottle seemed like the last?

Now there's a million ahead of us.

I'm going to drink to the life

I never had a chance to live

Cradle to the frontline

I'm going to spill champagne

from Hamburg to Munich

fall in love with every girl I meet

I'm going to live!

I've often thought about that too

My life, I mean.

I wonder what it was like

I haven't the vaguest idea.

But it must be something that's passed

So I'll drink to what I

value most-the three of us.

To us!

Not from day to day now,

but from year to year

Erich, Gottfried To us!

Now yours Gottfried.

You may think it's childish but here it is

On every battlefield,

soldiers think of going home

Bands are playing when they left

Heads were high and hearts were proud

But in four long years

now many heads have fallen

and many hearts have stopped

So I drink to those who

think of home tonight.

I drink to the peace

they hope to find at home.

Now that peace has come to them in war

You're a miracle Gottfried

An idealist, born of the war!

At ease, gentlemen.

Captain Koster

Your plane is to be ready

for dismantling in the morning

You mean, my plane is to be torn apart?

In the morning.

But if you're ready...

My plane is always ready.

Otto always said there was one good thing

about getting killed

Wouldn't have to say goodbye to 'Baby.'

That's what we fought for!

That's what we come back to

Violence and terror!

Won't they ever stop...

-It's not our fight, come on!

It's my fight.

I can't keep turning my back on peace.

Look Gottfried, we're eating.

We got a place to sleep and a job!

We're running a repair shop not a country.

They're running the country

Give a hoodlum a club and he'll run anything.

The others like you, Otto

They close their doors and windows

and keep whistling in the dark.

-And we have six bottles of rum

and it's Erich's birthday

Now come on!

Temper, temper. Remember the repair shop!

Keep whistling.

What are the new heroes of

the Fatherland doing tonight?

Posioning the drinking water?

It's none of your business,

we're running a garage

we're going to be very rich

Germany will need mechanics

in the years to come

There'll be all sorts of things to repair

Souls, consciences, broken hearts and...

- Shut up and come inside!

Happy birthday! From Gottfried and me.

Six, I mean four bottles of Cuban rum

and the two missing went for riot attacks!

What are we waiting for?

There won't be any customers

at night. Let's celebrate!

Celebrate, that's the thing.

Let's get out of this crazy town!

Where to? -Anywhere. South

America, San Francisco, Mars,

I'll settle for a ride in the country.

We'll take Baby-the terror of the roads.

And the rum. Don't forget the rum!

I think he wants to 'play' Otto!

Am I mistaken gentlemen? or did

we pass somebody on the road?

Well I heard a noise

Don't forget the rum.

What kind of junk is this?

You say something?

I asked what make your car is

Why, it's a Mutt.

Grandfather was an airplane

and Grandma was an old radio

and it's Papa was an alarm clock!

Well my name is Breuer.

I'm Lenz.

This is Koster and Lohkamp.

Otto, why don't you show Mr.Breuer the car?

It'll be a pleasure.

You know

you wiped me off the map!

Beautiful evening, isn't it?

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American fiction writer, whose works illustrate the Jazz Age. While he achieved limited success in his lifetime, he is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon, was published posthumously. Four collections of his short stories were published, as well as 164 short stories in magazines during his lifetime. more…
