By your tag, I see that you are referring to what Julia and Winston say when they go to O'Brien's home to find out more about the Brotherhood.  While they are there, O'Brien interrogates them some about what they will be willing to do for the movement.  He is trying to give them some idea as to what they will supposedly be required to do.

He asks them whether they are willing to kill (even to kill many innocent people).  He asks them if they are willing to die.  In all cases, they say they are.  But when he asks if they are willing to split up and never see one another again, Julia immediately says no.  After a bit, Winston agrees with her and says he is not willing to do this either.
