As in The Hostages, we have a situation in this episode of a Hessian officer wearing a British uniform and commanding British troops. These things did not happen in the Revolutionary War.
Henry: Smuggling explosives. Now why should that make you nervous?
Isak: Offhand, I can give you three good reasons: our necks.
Isak: Why'd you run?
Pompey: You oughta know as well as anybody. I'm tired of chains and buckskin crackers.
Pompey: I'll run anytime someone tries to sell me back.
Jim (about Pompey): I say we shoot him now and be done with it.
Lafayette: One of the things we're fighting for is the right for all men to be judged fairly.
Pompey: The more men talk the more likely they are to do nothing else.
Isak: Some things are just too much to ask.
Jeremy: Not if we're to end up with anything worthwhile.
Isak (to Pompey): You don't even know the meaning of the word truth.
Pompey: I only came to warn you not to join you.
Schieffler (about the coffins): Nothing provides more incentive to live than a reminder of death.
Schieffler (to Southwick): If there is one rebel left alive after the attack I shall have you shot.
Jim: Well, we're in.
Henry: I'd hate to see us leave in the same fashion.
Henry: It is a bit sticky trying to fight with empty guns.
Lafayette (when the man he assigned to execute Pompey expresses relief at Pompey's escape): Mon dieu! What an Army!
Ken Swofford would go onto appear on Ellery Queen and Fame.
