Quote"I...I'm not sure I understood what you said correctly. Sir.""And here I thought you were the best we had...well, it's understandable, I suppose. Hesitation in the face of one's own destruction is what makes you human...but since you aren't, the normal rules simply don't apply to you. I'm sorry.""I...yes. Sir. You are...without a doubt...right about that, sir.""You don't need to lie to me, lass. And damn me, I'm doubting this decision myself quite heavily as well. But, you know the brass. What's to be done's to be done. Just...no. My unwillingness to let go of you is just one more piece of proof for how splendidly you've performed your duty, lass.""...Sir?""It's been an honor and a pleasure to work with you, lass. I mean it, every last word. And damn me if this entire thing wasn't still all ultra secret, I'd hawk every last newspaper in on it so I can tell the bastards I Told You So when we lose our edge to the bloody yanks. Damn Bell Labs even stole the Bombe from us...ah, ah, my rambling. I'm too old for this.""With all respect, sir. You are the most splendid commander I've ever had.""That's sweet of you, lass. However, it doesn't mean as much as I'd like it to, since I am also the only commander you've ever had. And no commander ever enjoys the execution of a subordinate. No good commander does, at any rate.""Sir.""Anyway, you've been given your final orders. I can't say if it'll be tomorrow or next week or even if it's gonna happen this year or the next, but it will, eventually. Unlike us who've been given the opportunity to work with you...in Winston's eyes, you're classified material as part of the wartime operations, and along with the rest of it, you are to be destroyed.""S-sir.""I'd award you every damn medal we have if I could, soldier. But in their eyes, you're just another gun, and you don't pin medals on your guns unless you want them stolen. And by god they don't want you stolen - badly enough that they'd rather have you dead than risk it to happen.""I understand, sir.""Good. Well, off I go, then. I'd say to meet in heaven, but for some reason I doubt you'd be eligible for entry. Farewell, and god bless your...no, that's not quite right, is it. Farewell, and god bless you, computer. You saved us.""I just wish I could thank you with something better than death sentence..."
