Tommy: [last dialogue] We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be...

Alex: What?

Tommy: We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender. and even if this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

[Bolton and Winnant are having a heated discussion about the evacuation]

Captain Winnant: They need to send more ships. Every hour, the enemy pushes closer.

Commander Bolton: They've activated the small vessels pool.

Captain Winnant: Small vessels?

Commander Bolton: It's a list of civilian boats for requisition.

Captain Winnant: Civilian? We need destroyers...!

Commander Bolton: Small boats can load from the beach.

Captain Winnant: Not in these conditions!

Commander Bolton: Well, I'd rather fight waves than dive-bombers.

Captain Winnant: [Beat] No, you're right. They won't get up in this. The Royal Engineers are building piers from lorries. At least that should help us when the tide comes back.

Commander Bolton: Well, we'll know in six hour's time.

Captain Winnant: I thought the tides were every three?

Commander Bolton: Then it's good that you're army and I'm navy, isn't it.

Shivering Soldier: You haven't turned around.

Mr. Dawson: No, we have a job to do.

Shivering Soldier: Job? This is a pleasure yacht. You're weekend sailors, not the bloody navy. A man your age?

Mr. Dawson: Men my age dictate this war. Why should we be allowed to send our children to fight it?

Shivering Soldier: You should be at home!

Mr. Dawson: Well, there won't be any home if we allow a slaughter across the Channel.
