Lieutenant Frederic Henry:
We've never been apart, really. Not since we met.
Catherine Barkley: Not since we met.
Lieutenant Frederic Henry: And never can be.
Catherine Barkley: Never apart.
Lieutenant Frederic Henry: In life and in death. Say it Cat.
Catherine Barkley: In life and in death, we'll never be parted.
Lieutenant Frederic Henry: You do believe that, don't you, Cat?
Catherine Barkley: I believe it, and I'm not afraid.
A night attack is shown. During World War I there was very little flying at night and the night attacks that did occur were limited to big cities. It was almost impossible for a plane to attack specific targets in a large city, so effectively attacking people on a road in the dark was not possible, and did not happen.
In the original 1932 credits, the credits are punctuated by aerial bomb blasts, and every time there is a blast, a credit disappears to be replaced by the next one.
