Sharpe's Peril (2008 TV Movie)
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: [First lines] You, soldier. Dance with me.
Richard Sharpe: I do not dance.
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: Do not, sir? Or cannot?
Richard Sharpe: Will not.
Patrick Harper: [watches Sharpe get slapped by a noblewoman] Still have your way with the ladies, then?
Richard Sharpe: If it's gratitude you're after, you've joined the wrong army.
Richard Sharpe: I am no longer in the service of His Majesty. My business in India concluded I am for Calcutta to England.
Viscount Sedgefield: I cannot persuade you? Well perhaps then, you might at least be prevailed upon to perform one last duty? In which case I assure you there is no trouble to yourself.
Richard Sharpe: Aye. If I can.
Richard Sharpe: [Preparing to bleed a horse] Keep the bugger still, Pat!
Wormwood: [Glances down] That's elephant shit.
[Sharpe steps around it in surprise]
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: You mean to leave me here? In the company of common soldiers!
Richard Sharpe: Good practice, I'd have thought. You're set to marry one aren't you?
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: Major Joubert is a gentleman.
Richard Sharpe: Aye, well God help him.
Richard Sharpe: Sooner an honest murderer, than a man should steal from his mates.
Subedar Pillai: I would rest easier that we had a professional soldier with us.
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: At least I won't be kept awake by your snoring.
Richard Sharpe: I don't snore.
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: Like a cart horse!
Patrick Harper: [about Sharpe] When your back's against the wall, he's the one man you want beside you.
Ensign Percival Beauciere: It was my father that captured Jourdan's staff!
Richard Sharpe: Where the hell do you think you're about?
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: I wanted to ride.
Richard Sharpe: I can see that!
Richard Sharpe: For once in your life do as you're damn well told!
Major Tredinnick: Colonel! What's this man's father to you?
Richard Sharpe: He killed my wife! He killed her, and left our daughter motherless!
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: You are rude and ignorant and an uncouth brute!
Richard Sharpe: And you, madam, are a spoiled, willful, petulant, and selfish young fool!
Richard Sharpe: [Wants to kill Hakeswill's son] Stand aside Pat.
Patrick Harper: Can't let you do it.
Richard Sharpe: Stand aside, damn you!
Patrick Harper: You'll have to put me down first.
Marie-Angelique Bonnet: Having been the daughter to a soldier, I care little for the profession.
Patrick Harper: [Trying to pass his stone] Come on, flow like the Liffey!
Richard Sharpe: I was raised up from the ranks, Wormwood. You know what that means?
Wormwood: It means you done a feat, sir. Usually.
Richard Sharpe: It also means I know every dirty soldier's trick in the book.
Sir Henry Simmerson: I gave the task to my second-in-command. First mistake.
