    • Israel (to Hannibal): You had to go and open your big mouth.

    • Mingo: That's the trouble with roads, Daniel. They confuse the instincts.

    • Clydesdale: Benjamin Franklin! You are the last person I hoped to find here.

    • Clydesdale: It's not pigs we're after, Dr. Franklin. Only rebels. Though at times I must confess it's difficult to tell them apart.

    • Clydesdale: You're quite right, Franklin. An excellent Madeira. I don't know when I've tasted better. Franklin: I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was smuggled through your blockade.
