Captain von Trapp marries Maria, and they live happily... for a while. Then von Trapp gets called up to the German Navy, so the whole family run away to Switzerland after they sing together in a concert.
Maria: You know how Sister Berthe always makes me kiss the floor after we've had a disagreement? Well, lately I've taken to kissing the floor whenever I see her coming, just to save time.
Question: Why were the Nazis so desperate to get Captain von Trapp into their navy? Austria hadn't had a navy since the end of the first world war, so his skills weren't exactly up to date.
