Almost Heroes (1998) Poster


Hamilton Camp: Pratt


  • Pratt : Permission to check on the condition of my woman, sir? I wanna check on her bandages and see if she can keep some food down.

    Edwards : You are aware, of course, that this woman of yours is... made of... straw?

    Pratt : Oh, yes, sir. Figure that's why she burned so easy.

  • Hunt : What I remembered the most were the animals.

    Edwards : [smiles]  Ah, the animals...

    Hunt : Fearsome beasts of the mountains and plains. I've seen a bear so powerful... that it *snapped* a man's body in half with his huge jaws. Garrgghh! Garrgghh! I've seen a badger with paws as big as frying pans. And that'd rip your face right off! Right off! Nothing you can do with that! Just rip it off! Once there was a hawk that swooped down from the sky... Aggghhh! Aggghhh! Aggghhh! And plucked a man's eyeballs out of his sockets. Auuuggghhh! Auuuggghhh! The fella was screaming, "I'm blind! I can't see!" *Twice* when I was fishing...

    Higgins : [Horrified]  THERE'S AN ANIMAL NOW!

    [everyone except Edwards and Hunt starts firing at the animal] 

    Higgins : We can't kill it! We're all dead! God save us!

    Hunt : Hold your fire! Hold your fire!

    [everyone stops firing. Hunt looks closely and sees that the animal is just a squirrel nibbling on an acorn] 

    Hunt : It's only a squirrel.

    Pratt : He's got something in his hand!

    Guy Fontenot : Something in his hand!

    [they continue firing at the squirrel] 

  • Pratt : Sir, there's an old sayin'. "White water in the morning."

    Edwards : Yes?

    Pratt : That's it.

  • Pratt : [Picks up Bidwell's ear from the dirt]  Look at me. I'm going to make an experiment.

    [Starts talking into the ear] 

    Pratt : Hello, Bidwell? Can you hear me?

    Bidwell : I can hear you, Pratt.

    Pratt : It works.

    Edwards : Well, of course, it works. He's standing right... Let's get some sleep.

  • Pratt : [Talking into Bidwell's ear in his hand]  Bidwell? Bidwell! I fear the bear has killed Mr. Bidwell sir! He's failed to communicate with the me, by way of his ear...

    Edwards : It doesn't work that way, it doesn't work anyway! But even if it did, he couldn't talk through it!

    Pratt : [Again, talking into Bidwell's ear in his hand]  Sh... Bidwell?
