Quotes from

Col. Francis Burke: Not much time to remember all the girls you've known, all the laughter you've heard, all the gold you've spent, and all the plans you had to spend more. The places we've not seen, Jamie! The things that lie about the world, the fun of it!


Jamie Durie: Now, one of two things, Irishman. Either we fight on the spot, or we be comrades. Which is it to be?
Col. Francis Burke: Cut each other's throats or be friends for life - either way, is it?
Jamie Durie: It makes no difference to me.
Col. Francis Burke: And how do we make the decision?
Jamie Durie: Heads, we fight.
[He flips a coin]
Col. Francis Burke: Tails. Good. I'm a wee bit tired at the moment.


Col. Francis Burke: Why, you swindling scum of a coward! You mouse-hearted imitation of a man! You green crawling snake that slipped up from the slime when your thieving mother wasn't looking!
