Samuel: And the German military is ready to use chaos in Croatia as
justifications for actions that could plunge the entire civilized world into...
Colonel Ludlow: Samuel! The word "civilized" has no place in any discussions
of the affairs of this world.
Alfred: Miss Finncannon, Mother has told us of your sympathy for the social
Susannah: You make it sound like a disease.
Alfred: No, no, no, on the contrary, I'm in agreement.
Susannah: Your mother told me all about One Stab. She says that he was a
Alfred: Oh yes. He has a bag of scalps sitting away somewhere to prove it

Samuel: Hey, there's Tristan.
Samuel: Don't they feed you up there?
Tristan: Not much.
Samuel: You smell.
Tristan: Miss me, did you?
Samuel: Still hung over?
Tristan: Still drunk.
Samuel: Isn't she amazing?
Susannah: So this is Tristan. And does he speak English?

1. plunge into
“卷入，陷入”的意思。Samuel的意思是说“整个文明世界都被卷入到战争中”。 Plunge 还可以指“全神贯注地投入到某件事情中”，例如：The
kids plunged into the story. 孩子们整个被这个故事迷住了。
