Unlike Ettore Moretti or Gino, the promise of honor and the duties of patriotism mean little to Henry. As the Planet Express crew follows the badger, with Leela breaking her leg when Fry tries to save her from falling, the crew discovers an ancient Martian pyramid and calendar predicting that the world is going to end in While he does, at times, feel guilt over this course of action, he takes comfort in the knowledge that he is most loyal where loyalty counts most: Chief Singing Wind clarifies that the calendar foretells the destruction of Mars, not Earth, as the solar flare will bypass Earth and hit Mars; the calendar was created to warn the Earthlings to stay away from Mars.
The President then decides that a Decision Making Machine is to be used to select the most optimal cross-sections of humanity to be taken to Mars where they will start life anew. For one thing, he lives by a code of ethics. He will not sacrifice his life without purpose.
Games and Divertissement Henry and Catherine begin flirting with each other in order to forget personal troubles. The novel, however, suggests that loyalty is more a requirement of love and friendship than of the grand political causes and abstract philosophies of battling nations.
Code heroes must always have a purpose or duty. He rows across a lake to her. The respect with which Hemingway sketches these men, even at their lowest points, is highlighted by the humor, if not contempt, with which he depicts their opposites.
However, Leela is unable to jump due to her broken leg. Amy translates the ideograms on the calendar, as she is somewhat familiar with the Martian language, and concludes that the world will end inthe current year.
Yet, in his own unique way, the priest does share some characteristics of a code hero. She herself is in grave danger.

He does not show much emotion throughout A Farewell to Arms, doing so would be feminine-like. Henry often acts without thinking and considers the act itself more important than the idea of the act. Throw in a devout Christian faith, and it is not looking too good.If so, A Farewell to Arms might not have been a great starting point.
Maybe try The Sun Also Rises. If that doesn't do anything for you, well, Hemingway's dry style just isn't for everyone. A Farewell to Arms holds up several of its minor male characters as examples of fine manhood.
Rinaldi is a faithful friend and an oversexed womanizer; Dr. Valentini exhibits a virility to rival Rinaldi’s as well as a bold competence that makes him the best surgeon.
A Farewell to Arms Based on the semi-autobiographical novel A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, with a screenplay by Oliver H.P. Garrett and Benjamin Glazer, the film is about a romantic love affair between an American ambulance driver and an English nurse in Italy during World War I.
A Farewell to Arms - For those on the ramparts of the world's sole superpower, the digital winds are blowing an icy chill through the triumphant glow of the post-Cold War.
However, a man's code is not some abstract theory that he devised in his leisure hours; it is something he does, an essential feature of how he lives his life. A code hero is a man of action, not a thinker. On the face of it, it would appear that the priest in A Farewell To Arms does not fit into the category of a Hemingway code hero.
He is certainly no macho man.
