    • Brad: Joshua, what are you doing to the map?
      Joshua: We made a dogleg a few miles back. I'm just correcting the chart.
      Brad: You know, I'd think you were the best mate on the river if I didn't know you'd be selling those charts to other pilots the minute we got back to Natchez.
      Joshua: Well, a man has to look out for his old age, Captain.

    • Joshua: There's one thing you can give the British credit for is teaching a man how to aim a cannon. That's all I'll give them credit for, though.

    • Brad: If those are peaceful Indians, I'd sure hate to get in their way when they're on the warpath.

    • Brad: But what provoked the attack?
      Lt. Henshaw: Oh, a lot of little things. The major's been tightening up the last few months on discipline between us and the Indians.
      Brad: You mean discipline caused the attack?
      Lt. Henshaw: The major reads the book word for word; every comma, period and semicolon.

    • Major Daniels: Worst officer I ever had. Don't know he ever became an officer. Nothing in his background but the river.
      Brad: I don't know that that's so bad, Major.
      Major Daniels: Has it ever produced a gentleman?
      Brad: I think we're like the Army. We produce a little of everything.
