James: Washington is one of the richest men in Virginia. Hancock is the richest in New England. If we lose this war, they lose everything! What's more important to them? Treasure, or freedom?

Lafayette: [awkwardly] I was wearing a merchant's cloak!
General Washington: Treat him as if he was my son.
