Kennedy: (upon seeing the French Royalist troops) Well, what do you make of them, Horatio?

Matthews: What size is the bridge, sir?
Hornblower: I'd imagine it's a bit bigger than the river, Matthews.
Hornblower: My lord. Is everything well?
Major Edrington: Well? Look at this place, Mr. Hornblower. No artilliary would dare cross here and if they tried my mama could beat them off with her parasol.
Major Edrington: Never underestimate the enemy, Mr. Hornblower, but never overestimate an ally.
Hornblower: (trying to get his horse to turn) Damn this animal! What it needs is a rudder!
Hornblower: You do not kow me, madmoiselle. If you knew me, you would not be so quick to doubt me.
