Richard Sharpe: What are you smiling at, Fredrickson?

Frederickson: I'm not smiling, sir. A musket ball broke my jaw. I have false teeth. The sawbone stuck on the smile for free, sir. He also stuck on my hair. Hair belongs to a horse, sir.

Wellington: You think there may be something in those rockets, Sharpe?

Richard Sharpe: Not as to accuracy, sir, but they play merry hell with the morality of poorly led men, sir. The sound is shocking.

Wellington: Scared you, did they?

Richard Sharpe: I was terrified, sir.

Sir Augustus Farthingale: Do, uh, you you really think this Sharpe's the right man to send, sir? Won't cut and run if someone lets off a gun, will he?

Rifleman Cooper: They don't, Mr. Hagman.

Rifleman Perkins: I bet they don't know Mr. Sharpe shot an officer, just for having dust on his buttons!

Richard Sharpe: Tell General Chaumier, we will fight him to the death.

Ducos: [laughs] Major Sharpe is not well. We outnumber you ten to one. There will be no terms if you do not surrender immediately.

[For answer, Sharpe plucks off Ducos's glasses, drops them to the ground, and crushes them with his boot]

Richard Sharpe: To the death.

Sir Augustus Farthingale: I'm in charge here, *Major* Sharpe! We shall discuss terms immediately.

[Ducos smirks. Sharpe grabs Farthingdale by the arm and pulls him aside]

Richard Sharpe: Your wife was a whore, sir. I know, for I was once her lover. Let that get out, and you'll be the laughingstock of Lisbon, and then of London. Leave now, and on my honor, no word of it shall pass my lips.

Sir Augustus Farthingale: [pale] But... but I do love her, you know.

[Sharpe sneers and returns Farthingdale's watch with a slap]

Richard Sharpe: You're a damned liar.
