[after telling the soldiers to destroy the whiskey in Meacham's storeroom, Col. Thursday starts to leave
I'll protest. I'll write Washington, I'll have you busted!
Lt. Col. Thursday
Mr. Meacham, you're a blackguard, a liar, a hypocrite and a stench in the nostrils of honest men. If it were in my power I'd hang you from the nearest tree, leave your carcass for the buzzards. But, as you are a representative of the United States government, I pledge you the protection and cooperation of my command. Good day, sir.
