Jeffrey Jones: Bogg, I'm really sorry I doubted you. I should have known all along you could do it.
Phineas Bogg: Jeffrey, you are as stubborn as a mule. You had to go out there and do it your own way no matter what anybody says or how it might turn out just because you thought it was right.
Phineas Bogg: I like that. You act like a real Voyager.
Jeffrey Jones: Where are we, Bogg?
Phineas Bogg: How does the south of Italy, 73 BC, grab you?
Jeffrey Jones: That explains the gladiators?
Phineas Bogg: You got any idea what's wrong? It's flashin' red.
Jeffrey Jones: I don't know. I'm not too great with this part of history.
Jeffrey Jones: Boy, grownups can really be jerks.
Young Sam Clemens: Yeah, I don't have much use for them myself. You and your friend get in a fight?
Jeffrey Jones: Yeah. We saw a runaway slave get captured this morning. I wanna go back and help her escape again, but my friend won't help me. He says it's a bad idea.
Young Sam Clemens: Well, I have to go along with your friend there. Ain't right to help a slave escape.
Jeffrey Jones: Well, you think slavery's right?
Young Sam Clemens: Well, preachers don't say it's wrong. Teachers don't neither. Even the government says it's all right.
Jeffrey Jones: Well, you wouldn't wanna be a slave, would you?
Young Sam Clemens: Well, heck, no.
Jeffrey Jones: Well, why do you think it's all right for anyone else to be one?
Young Sam Clemens: I don't know. It's just... I've seen colored folks as slaves all my life. I just kind of got used to it. Well, it just seems natural.
Jeffrey Jones: Well, it's not natural. It's wrong. One day, everyone's gonna see that. And it's gonna be illegal in every state.
Young Sam Clemens: Well, I still don't know if slavery's right or wrong, but like my ma always says, I'm not one to put down a chance to get into trouble. So, if you're gonna break that slave out tonight, well, I'll help you.
Young Sam Clemens: [Sam and Jeffrey have been caught helping Harriet Tubman escape, and the three are now in the custody of the Sheriff] My ma was right, I'm headin' for an early grave.
Harriet Tubman: I'm sorry, boys, I really am. Never thought anybody but me would have to sacrifice for my freedom.
Jeffrey Jones: If I had to, Harriet, I'd do it all over again.
Young Sam Clemens: Yeah, me too. Well, heck, there's somethin' extravagant about bein' hung at the age of twelve.
