A group of soldiers are furiously eating by a tree. Soldier 1 grabs some food from soldier's 2's plate. Soldier 3 is dozing off laying by a tree.
SOLDIER 2: "Don't mind me."
SOLDIER 1: "Oh, that's all right. Don't mention it."
SOLDIER 3: "You know...I could do with some more beans."
SOLDIER 4: "Go help yourself. There's more over there."
SOLDIER 3: "Ohhhh. It's too far."
SOLDIER 2: "I wonder, when are we going back to the front?"
SOLDIER 4: "Tomorrow."
Soldier 1 throws away his plate.
SOLDIER 1: "It's enough to take away a man's appetite."
SOLDIER 2: "You know, if they're gonna march us in again tomorrow, we ought to go see how Kemmerick is."
They all agree.
SOLDIER 5: "How far is the dressing station?"
SOLDIER 1: "About two miles."
SOLDIER 5: "We could take his things to him."
SOLDIER 2: "It seemed rotten to think of a thing like that happening to him. A nice fellow like Kemmerick."
SOLDIER 6: "Ah, the French certainly deserve to be punished for starting this war."
SOLDIER 3: "Everybody says it's somebody else."
SOLDIER 1: "Well, how do they start a war?"
SOLDIER 6: "Well, one country offends another."
SOLDIER 1: "How can one country offend another? You mean there's a mountain over in Germany gets mad at a field over in France?"
SOLDIER 6: "Well, stupid, one people offends another."
