Doggett: [on the Prince of Orange] He did it again. How many more men will he kill? That's my commission gone to the blazes I dare say, but it had to be said.

Patrick Harper: [to Doggett] Oh now you have caused trouble!

Doggett: [to the Prince of Orange] You did it again! Colonel Sharpe said you would do it again, and you did! All those men dead because you wanted to get out? You coward!

Rebeque: Doggett! His Royal Highness cannot be called a coward.

Doggett: No, dammnit. No, not cowardice, not that. Just so he can dance and prance, and make high cockalorum, while men die? Horribly? It is too much, I declare, too much! I shall say it!

Doggett: [after a second] You sir, are a silk stocking full of shit!

Jane Sharpe: Don't hurt me please!

Richard Sharpe: And you!

[grabs Rossendale]

Richard Sharpe: You dare to come! You dare to join! You dare to be in the same buggerin' army as me!

Richard Sharpe: [chases Rossendale until Rossendale trips and falls] Get up! Get up and fight!

[turns to the crowd]

Richard Sharpe: Somebody give him a sword!

[turns back to Rossendale]

Richard Sharpe: Do you have a friend?

Rossendale: [recognizing the duel challenge] No no no no no, please!

Richard Sharpe: Then give me the money, you can keep the whore you lilly-livered...

[feels the shame of being a cuckold, and draws his sword]

Richard Sharpe: No, by God I'll fillet you anyway!

[looks down at Rossendale]

Richard Sharpe: [does not move his sword] By God I'll fillet you also!

Uxbridge: You will not!

[the Prince of Orange rides to Wellington's side]

Prince William of Orange: Good day to you. We're fighting Boney, you know. Indeed we are. This day, at the cross roads of Quartre Bras... He's been seen.

Wellington: [skeptically] Has he been?

Prince William of Orange: We're holding the woods, I do believe... yes.

Uxbridge: [looks around] Where are your men?

Prince William of Orange: Fighting... fighting.

[the Dutch troops stream past, clearly running away]

Uxbridge: I stand corrected, highness. I know very little about uniforms, other than me own, but I could have sworn these was yours as is running. Ain't they?

Prince William of Orange: [draws his sword] Some of them, Lord Uxbridge, some of them.

[spurs after them]

Prince William of Orange: Come back here, you cowards!

Wellington: I never mind men running as long as they come back.

Wellington: [to the retreating Dutch troops] My lads, you look blown from your run. Come, do take breath a moment. Then we will go back and try if we can do better. Take heart, soon have some guns up. Uxbridge!

Uxbridge: Wellington?

Wellington: When?

Uxbridge: Oh, they do come, I assure you. What of the Prussians. Any word at all?

Wellington: I told the Prussians we'll support them but only if not attacked here. They'll have to fight without us today.

Wellington: If your corps is coming up, as you assure me, how close do you think they are? I want them to clear that road, I want it handsomely arranged with guns.

Uxbridge: Very close.

Wellington: How close?

Uxbridge: Close. Coming up.

[He turns around to look for them]

[as Wellington sits down to dinner, the night before the battle]

Uxbridge: What do you do tomorrow?

Wellington: What do you eat, Uxbridge?

Uxbridge: [impatiently] Much the same.

Wellington: Does the army want for anything?

Uxbridge: Damn it, what do you do tomorrow? What plans have you?

Wellington: Plans?

Uxbridge: I am second in command! I ought to know!

Wellington: As soon as Napoleon Bonaparte tells me what *he's* going to do, I shall know what *I'm* going to do, and I shall tell you. But as Boney has not yet confided in me, I cannot confide in you. So, to your beef, Uxbridge.

[Uxbridge exits in a huff]

Wellington: [under his breath] Adulterous rogue.

Witherspoon: [taking out a notebook] What time?

Richard Sharpe: What?

Witherspoon: What time did it stop? The cannonade. I have it as ten minutes of midday, but the Duke likes it accurate, you see.

Richard Sharpe: What time is it now?

Witherspoon: Oh, uh...

[fumbles with his pocketwatch]

Witherspoon: Four minutes after midday, save a few...

Richard Sharpe: You'd best write down that they're coming, then.

Witherspoon: Coming?

Richard Sharpe: The French are advancing.

[Witherspoon looks into the woods, where a huge French column is advancing]

Witherspoon: Ah, so they are. Thank you, my dear fellow, I might have missed that.
