Wooster: I don't like the looks of this river.

Wooster: I'm all wet.
Adams: You always were.

Flint: You know that you murdered over 100 women and children?
Buckner: I thought it was closer to 200.

Flint: If you live long enough you will be.

Moore: What's the matter--are you afraid?
Flint: Yeah, that's one way of puttin' it.

Wooster: (after seeing the Comanches) Merciful saints! We've had it now.
