Still, a chap ought to look smart in front of the men, don't you think?
You mean your only plan is to stand behind a few feet of mealie bags and wait for the Zulus to attack?
I'll lead the men up into the hills. I know exactly how to disperse them. Ambush, you see? We cut them down in the passes!
Right now, I wish I were a damned ranker, like Hook or Hitch.
That's a bitter pill! Our own damned rifles!
I knew it... I knew it! They're going to attack both sides at once!
If you're sick in hospital, I suggest you go and lie down.
Pull your heads in afore they fall off!
All right, then! Nobody told you to stop working!
A prayer's as good as a bayonet on a day like this.
I shall be exalted among the heathen. I shall be exalted in the earth. The Lord of Hosts is with us.
Mister Witt, be quiet now, will you? There's a good gentleman. You'll upset the lads.
Because we're here, lad. No one else. Just us.
In Europe, young women accept arranged marriages to rich men. Perhaps the Zulu girls are luckier, getting a brave man.
You will all be killed like those this morning -- and now the sick in their beds!
Stay not to kill and be killed! The curse of Cain will be upon you! 'Am I my brother's keeper?' asked Cain. Yea, we are all our brothers' keepers!
Boy! Hear me, boy. Will you be Cain and kill your brother? 'Thou shalt not kill,' saith the Lord. You believe in the Lord's Word, don't you? Go to the others, boy. Go to the others...
You have made a covenant with death, and with hell you are in agreement! Death awaits you all! You're all going to DIE!
Stuff me with green apples! You know, if a dog was as sick as him, they'd shoot him.
And what for? Did I ever see a Zulu walk down the City Road? No! So what am I doing here?
We're next, boys! This is the blind spot. Even if those flamin' officers haven't seen it, I'll bet the Zulus have.
Out you get, Hooky, you done your bit!
Where's me bloody Sergeant?
Brandy's for heroes, Mister Hook. The rest of you will make do with flies in your meat, boils in your skin, and dysentery in your bellies.
Don't take it so badly, Mister Witt. Isn't this as good a place as any for a man to be when he's in pain?
