The Artilleryman's plan to rebuild society underground - unrealistic, sure, but the sheer enthusiasm and gusto makes it believable.
Artilleryman: We'll build shops and hospitals and barracks right under their noses - right under their feet! Everything we need - banks, prisons and schools... We'll send scouting parties to collect books and stuff, and men like you'll teach the kids! Not poems and rubbish - science, so we can get everything working! We'll build villages and towns and... and... we'll play each other at cricket! Listen, maybe one day we'll capture a Fighting Machine, eh? Learn how to make 'em ourselves and then wallop! Our turn to do some wiping out! Whoosh with our Heat Ray - Whoosh! And them running and dying, beaten at their own game! Man on top again!
