Higgins: You served with Colonel Donovan in the O.S.S., didn’t you, sir?

Mr. Wabash: I sailed the Adriatic with a movie star at the helm. Doesn’t seem like much of a war now, but it was. I go even further back than that: ten years after the Great War, as we used to call it…before we knew enough to number them.

Higgins: You miss that kind of action, sir?

Mr. Wabash: No, I miss that kind of clarity.
