    Ich hätte gerne einen kleinen Cognac oder Napoleon Brandy, bitte.

    Würdest du wissen, ob die Engländer ihr Grammophon wieder mögen würden?


    Wir schienen eine erworben zu haben, als wir hier übernahmen.

    Ah, vous allez bien Monsieur, un Napoléon Brandy. Attention, celui-ci est aussi vieux que Napoléon.

    En ce qui concerne le grammaphone anglais, je ne sais pas s’ils l’ont déjà remplacé. Nous le saurons après la première mission, car ils aiment bien chanter toute la nuit sur un vieux disque éraillé.

    Ah, c’est bien mon ami, peut-être que l’un d’eux nous le fera savoir bientôt. Le jeune Heidrich a un mauvais goût en musique.

    Du bist Englisch und dein Bier. Es ist so warm Wie trinkt man den Schweineabfälle? Wenn Sie etwas Schnaps, Cognac oder Champagner haben, dann sprechen Sie.

    Hello again guys,

    Yep, seems some have forgotten the international language of the air. Still, I can always switch the receiver off.

    Well you will be relying on the wireless for this match chaps, because I'm not bringing my Gramophone to this one after what happened last time round, and you can get that carthorse out of my nice new office too.

    Just because you guys cannot make decent beer, no need to call it pig swill. That's fighting talk. On the other hand, being part Irish, I'd go for a Jamesons, rather than your Schnaps any day

    (The WingCo enters the Bulldog’s mess.)

    WingCo: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.
    (The mess manager does not respond.)
    WingCo: 'Ello, Miss?
    MM: What do you mean "miss"?
    WingCo: (pause)I'm sorry, I have a cold. I wish to register a complaint!
    MM: We're closin' for lunch.
    WingCo: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this Aspidistra what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.
    MM: Oh yes, the, uh, the South Eastern Asian Blue...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?
    WingCo: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'It's dead, that's what's wrong with it!
    MM: No,no, 'it's uh,...it's resting.
    WingCo: Look, matey, I know a dead Aspidistra when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.
    MM: No no it's not dead, it's, it’s restin'! Remarkable plant, the South Eastern Asian Blue, idn'it, ay? Beautiful leaves!
    WingCo: The leaves don't enter into it. It's stone dead.
    MM: Nononono, no, no! 'It's resting!
    WingCo: All right then, if it's restin', I'll wake it up! (shouting at the pot) 'Ello, Mister Aspidistra! I've got a lovely saucer of milk to wash your leaves for you if you show...(mess manager hits the pot)
    MM: There, it moved!
    WingCo: No, it didn't, that was you hitting the pot!
    MM: I never!!
    WingCo: Yes, you did!
    MM: I never, never did anything...
    WingCo: (yelling and hitting the pot repeatedly) 'ELLO ASPIDISTRA!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!
    (Takes ASPIDISTRA out of the pot and thumps its roots on the counter. Throws it up in the air and watches it plummet to the floor.)
    WingCo: Now that's what I call a dead Aspidistra.
    MM: No, no.....No, 'It's stunned!
    WingCo: STUNNED?!?
    MM: Yeah! You stunned it, just as it was wakin' up! South Eastern Asian Blue's stun easily, WingCo.
    WingCo: Um...now look...now look, mate, I've definitely 'ad enough of this. That Aspidistra is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not 'alf an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein' tired and shagged out following a prolonged repotting.
    MM: Well, he's...he's,ah...probably pining for the fjords.
    WingCo: PININ' for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did it fall flat on its back the moment I got it home?
    MM: The South Eastern Asian Blue prefers keepin' on it's back! Remarkable plant, id'nit, squire? Lovely leaves!
    WingCo: Look, I took the liberty of examining that Aspidistra when I got it to me office, well shed really, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting in its pot in the first place was that it had been NAILED there.
    (pause)
    MM: Well, o'course it was nailed there! If I hadn't nailed that Aspidistra down, it would have nuzzled up to those bars, bent 'em apart with its leaves, crossed the runway stolen a plane and VOOM! Feeweeweewee!
    WingCo: "VOOM"?!? Mate, this Aspidistra wouldn't "voom" if you put four million volts through it! 'It's bleedin' demised!
    MM: No no! 'E's pining!
    WinCo: 'It's not pinin'! 'It's passed on! This Aspidistra is no more! It has ceased to be! 'It's expired and gone to meet 'its maker! 'It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'it to the perch 'it'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Its metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'It's off the twig! 'It's kicked the bucket, 'It's shuffled off 'its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! It's f*ckin' snuffed it!..... THIS IS AN EX-ASPIDISTRA!!
    (pause)
    MM: Well, I'd better replace it, then.
    (he takes a quick peek behind the counter)
    MM: Sorry squire, I've had a look 'round the back of the shop, and uh, we're right out of Aspidistra’s.
    WingCo: I see. I see, I get the picture.
    MM: (pause)I got a slug of Gin!
    (pause)
    WingCo: Pray, does it talk?
    MM: Nnnnot really.
    WingCo: WELL IT'S HARDLY A BLOODY REPLACEMENT, IS IT?!!???!!?
    MM: Well! I never wanted to do this in the first place. I wanted to be... An observer in the Kyte Section, I mean Kite section!

    Don't think Gin is any good at all. After the men tried to revive it with beer it just got worse.

    Next 2 or 3 Dawn Patrols should put some order back into his esprit de corps WingCo. Damn Aspidistra's been fine in the corner of the mess until this new influx.
