    • Fogg: Colonel Proctor.
      Paladin: He can catch us any time he wants to.
      Fogg: Therefore...?
      Paladin: Therefore, we should head for the brush, and turn toward the river.

      Fogg: Princess Aouda derives from a caste of warriors who've given Her Majesty a rousing good scrap once in a while, and all the better for it. But out in the open, mind you, not, not hiding behind some craven ambush like, like, like Red Indians.
      Paladin: The last countryman of yours who uttered sentiments like that about tactics was a fellow named Cornwallis just before the battle of Yorktown. Now I wonder what he thought when Washington finished with him.
      Fogg: Charlie Cornwallis! That fatuous, second-rate little opportunist, who let those untrained colonists lead him around by the nose?
