I'd give my left arm to have a touch of what you've got. I hate it. Just the bloody thought of it gives me the shakes. In fact, that's my nightmare, the shakes. I don't mind dying; not if it's quick. Life's not that much, is it? I wouldn't mind having a gammy leg, like you've got; though I don't suppose it's funny. But the shakes? Shellshock? Just shaking and shambling like a -- epileptic baby? Nay, I'd rather be dead. I can see what's coming; I'm going to disgrace myself --"
