Teresa: [to Sir Augustus] If you were a man, I would call you out, force you to fight a duel, and kill you. Sarah: Don't worry. I'm married to a French colonel. We fell in love before this war began. He's a brave man and he'll come for me soon, I know he will. Isabella: I'm married to an English colonel. He's a coward, and he won't come at all. Richard Sharpe: No wonder Harris reads Voltaire. Listen: Dieu ne pas pour le gros battalions, mais pour sequi teront le meilleur. Teresa: God is not on the side of the big battalions, but of the best shots. Richard Sharpe: Not bad for a Frog, eh? Wellington: Discipline is only a rabble-rouser's shout from anarchy! Isabella: Voltaire says, I have no morals, yet I am a very moral person. And that's how I think I am. Richard Sharpe: That's how I think you are, too. Nairn: You see that colonel, Sharpe? That colonel came here to make you a major. Would you believe that? Richard Sharpe: No, sir.

I have false teeth. The sawbone stuck on the smile for free, sir. He also stuck on my hair. Hair belongs to a horse, sir. Pot Au Fe: My friends, let us not fight! Let us eat!

Harris: I'll trade you a Voltaire, and a filthy book by the Marquis De Sade, for your Sir Augustus, sir. Ducos: Come, Colonel. We've wasted enough time in Adrados. It was a fool's errand in the first place. Richard Sharpe: Fool's errand? That man's wife is held hostage, sir! What is he to do? Ducos: Find another.
