Quotes

Captain Nathan Spiker: I've always loathed you, Moat. You traitorous evil parasite. You'll see, Sir John, you'll see when the whole county rises against you. I've watched him on Gibraltar. Oh yes, he put down the mutiny. The mutiny brought about by his own, mad cruelty. He broke men. Reduced them to animals. But there was one man you couldn't brake, wasn't there, Moat? No matter how many lashes you gave him. And can you guess who that was, Sir John? Turpin! By God, you'd better catch him, Colonel!
