Isle of the Dead

What? Pass up an opportunity to sleep
in a soft bed, maybe have a hot bath?

General, you must be out of your mind.
If you won't think of yourself,
will you please think of me?

I haven't slept in a bed for two months.
The last bath I took was a bucket
of cold water I stole from your horse.

No, really?
General, I feel for this young man.

He can stay.
But I have to get back to the troops.

That battery near the beach,
you planned to inspect it in the morning.

You could do it on the way back
and save time.

I could do that
before the troops break camp.

Fine. I'm honored to have you,
and we'll try to make you comfortable.

But we must be off
first thing in the morning.

I'll see about the room.
- Good night.
- Good night.

- Good night, gentlemen.
- Good night.

Our house welcomes you, master soldier.
You stay to guard us.

Good night, my dear. Sleep well.
Take good care of her, Thea.

Come, I will get you to bed
before that old woman gets up here.

She is always prying, peering,
trying to find out something.

She is just an old woman.
Odd, perhaps, but harmless.

Mr. Albrecht, for this I will
never be able to thank you enough.

- Good night.
- Good night.

This is wonderful. What's the matter?
Only General Pherides,
the old watchdog of his country...

would turn a bedroom into a barracks.
What's the matter? Have you forgotten
how to sleep on a mattress?

I've learned to live without comfort.
I can stand a hard bed and a hard thought
without worrying too much.
