Mrs. Munro: Lesson there, then. Don't say everything you think.

Mrs. Munro: Your dad hated what he did for a living. Mechanic in a garage, like his dad before him.

Scored high marks, got assigned to a Bristol Blenheim, Mark IV. Blown out of the sky. First time up. All his mates who worked the motor pool came home without a scratch.
