HERR ZELLER: You never answered the telegram from the Admiral of the Navy of the Third Reich.
CAPTAIN VON TRAPP: I was under the impression, Herr Zeller, that the contents of telegrams in Austria are private! At least, the Austria I know.
HERR ZELLER: You misunderstand me, Captain. We did not look into the contents of your telegram, nor was there a need to do so in these circumstances. We have simply gathered certain metadata associated with your telegram. The authorities simply took note that a telegram left the Reich Admiralty, addressed to you, and that the telegram arrived at your residence, and that to date you have not send a response. Strictly routine.
CAPTAIN VON TRAPP: I see.
