Pocahontas (1995)
Governor Ratcliffe: Wiggins, why do you think those insolent heathens attacked us?
Wiggins: Because we invaded their land and cut down their trees and dug up their earth?
Governor Ratcliffe: It's the gold! They have it and they don't want us to take it from them. Well, I'll just have to take it by force then, won't I?

Wiggins: [to Percy, waving a chicken leg] Who's a good doggy, hmm? Who's a good doggy?
[Percy rolls his eyes]
Wiggins: [throwing the chicken leg away] Fetch, boy!

Wiggins: Do you think we'll meet some savages?
Governor Ratcliffe: If we do, we shall be sure to give them a proper English greeting.
Wiggins: [holds up baskets of wine and cheese] Ooh, gift baskets!
Governor Ratcliffe: [groans] And he came so highly recommended.

Governor Ratcliffe: [taken away in chains, muffled] How dare you! Untie me at once! I'll have your heads for this!
Wiggins: [tearfully] And he came so highly recommended.
[sighs sadly]

Governor Ratcliffe: I've never been a popular man.
Wiggins: I like you.
Governor Ratcliffe: And don't think I don't know what those back stabbers at court say about me.
Wiggins: Oh, yes, all that talk about being a pathetic social climber who's failed at everything he's tried.
Governor Ratcliffe: I'm very well aware that this is my last chance for glory. But mark my words, Wiggins. When King James sees the gold these peasants unearth, success will be mine at last.

Wiggins: [gives Percy a bath] Hurry now, Percy. We must be all squeaky clean for the New World.

Wiggins: [has what looks like an arrow through his head] I-I.
[takes off arrow]
Wiggins: I made it myself.

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!

Governor Ratcliffe: Don't lose your heart, men. It won't be long before we reach the New World. And remember what awaits us there. Freedom. Prosperity. The adventure of our lives. You're the finest crew England has to offer and nothing, not wind nor a thousand bloody savages shall stand in our way. Carry on, men!
Wiggins: A stirring oration, sir. I'm sure the men were most exhilarated.
Governor Ratcliffe: Let's hope so.
[quietly to Percy]
Governor Ratcliffe: I'll need those witless peasants to dig up my gold, won't I?
Percy: [growls in agreement]
