Pocahontas (1995)
Thomas: [to Pocahontas, about John after being wounded] Going back is his only chance. He'll die if he stays here.

John Smith: Look, we don't have to fight them.
Thomas: John, what's gotten into you?
John Smith: I met one of them.
Ben: You what?
Thomas: A savage!
John Smith: They're not savages, they can help us. They know the land, they know how to navigate the rivers.
[Meeko pulls out an ear of corn and gives it to John]
John Smith: And look, it's food.
Lon: What is it?
John Smith: It's better than hardtack and gruel, that's for sure.
Wiggins: I like gruel.
Governor Ratcliffe: [takes the corn and throws it on the ground] They don't want to feed us, you ninnies! They want to kill us! All of us! They've got our gold, and they'll do anything to keep it!
John Smith: But there is no gold!
Ben: No gold?
Governor Ratcliffe: [sarcastically] And I suppose your little Indian friend told you this.
John Smith: Yes.
Governor Ratcliffe: Lies! Lies, all of it! Murderous thieves. There's not room for their kind of civilized society!
John Smith: But this is their land!
Governor Ratcliffe: This is my land! I make the laws here! And I say anyone who so much as look at an Indian without killing him on sight, will be tried for treason and hanged!

Lon: [Lon and Thomas are gazing at the new world for the first time] It's incredible!
Thomas: And it's all ours. I've never seen anything like it!
Ben: [approaching] It could look like Ratcliffe's knickers for all I care, so long as we get off the stinking boat!

Governor Ratcliffe: [Thomas is staring after John Smith, who has just snuck off to see Pocahontas. Ratcliff appears behind him and pushes him out the fort] Follow him.
Thomas: [standing to attention] Yes, governor.
Governor Ratcliffe: I want to know where he's sneaking off to.
Thomas: Yes, sir.
Governor Ratcliffe: And if you see any Indians
[tossing Thomas a rifle]
Governor Ratcliffe: shoot them.
[Thomas looks at the rifle uncertainly]
Governor Ratcliffe: Oh, and Thomas you've been a slipshod sailor and a poor excuse for a soldier. Don't disappoint me again.
Thomas: [walks off, looking hurt]

Thomas: [Thomas aims at Kocoum and closes one eye] Both eyes open.
[he opens both eyes, fires and hits Kocoum in the chest]

Thomas: [looking at Kocoum's body after shooting him] Is he?
Pocahontas: You killed him.
Thomas: I thought that.
Pocahontas: [Angrily rushes at Thomas] Get away from him!
John Smith: [holds her back] Pocahontas, it wont help! He was only.
Pocahontas: [shouts] He killed him!
John Smith: [they hear other Indians approaching] Thomas! Get out of here!
[Thomas hesitates]
John Smith: [yells] Get out of here!

Governor Ratcliffe: [after Powhatan has released John Smith] Now's our chance! Fire!
Thomas: No!
Governor Ratcliffe: What?
Thomas: They let him go!
Ben: They don't want to fight!
Governor Ratcliffe: It's a trick, don't you see? Fire!
[no-one moves. Ratcliff grabs someone's gun]
Governor Ratcliffe: Fine! I'll settle this myself!
[he aims at Powhatan]
John Smith: [seeing Ratcliff] No!
[he pushes Powhatan away and is shot in the stomach]
Thomas: John!
[John falls. Thomas turns on Ratcliffe]
Thomas: You shot him!
Governor Ratcliffe: He-he stepped right into it! It was his own fault!

Thomas: [as a bugle is being played] John, you better get down here! The governor's coming ashore!
John Smith: [blows an attacking Flit away from his face] All right, all right! I'm leaving.

Thomas: What do you suppose the New World will look like?
John Smith: Like all the others, I suppose. I've seen hundreds of new worlds, Thomas. What could possibly be different about this one?
