      • Jason: It's about Mr. Flynn, and the business he plans to bring to Seattle.
        Flynn: The business is war, Mr. Bolt. The customers are the British, the place of transaction Canada, and the price to be exacted the freedom of Ireland.

      • Jason: By what right do you plan to risk the lives of the people of this town, in a war that has nothing to do with them?
        Flynn: By the same right tens of thousands of us were conscripted and killed in an American war. We fought your war, Mr. Bolt, and we fought it well. But now we're tired of your country. It's no longer a land of dreams. We want to go home, to a free Ireland.

      • Flynn: It's a lonely thing being who I am and doing what I have to do. And the only one who cared for me, I fear I may have just lost.

      • Flynn: Go ahead, darling. Shoot me, don't be afraid. 'Cause if you don't, I'm going to do what I came here for. And probably lose you the young man you're so fond of.
        Bridget: It's not only him.
        Flynn: No, darling, it's all of them now, isn't it? All of the dead and the maimed across the country. You know, I'm tired of all the killing. Sometimes I think I don't even know why it's still being done. I'm tired, but I can't stop now. Not when I'm this close. It's up to you, darling.

      • Title: A Wild Colonial Boy
        The title references the Irish-Australian ballad, "The Wild Colonial Boy." The song is about real-life Irish rebel Jack Donahue, who escapes prison and is eventually shot dead by the police. When the government ruled the song seditious, the character's name was changed to Jack Donahue. The Australian version uses the name Jack Doolan.
