Quote from Jill in Taps

Jill: No, Mom. When Dad called to ask if you all could come up and visit, I said that I was sick. I made that up.
Lillian: You didn't want us to visit you?
Jill: No, Mom. It just... It wasn't a good time. I thought you might have understand, but I didn't have the guts to say no to Dad!
Lillian: Well, your father was not an easy man to say no to.
Jill: Well, maybe not. But now the last memory I have of my father is lying to him.
Lillian: Jill, what do you suppose would've happened if you'd told the colonel the truth?
Jill: I don't know! He probably would've understood.
Lillian: [chuckles] I don't think we're talking about the same colonel.
Jill: Well, how do you think he would've reacted?
Lillian: He would've said, "What do you mean you want time for yourself? We'll be there at 0800 and we're bivouacking in Brad's room."
Jill: That does sound like Dad.
