  • Jim Bowie  

    I've never had anything to say about that long-winded jackanapes, but he sure does know a way how to start a war.

  • Davy Crockett  

    Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat - the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound as a man. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words.

  • Tennessean  

    It do!

  • Davy Crockett  

    It was like I was empty. Well, I'm not empty anymore. That's what's important, to feel useful in this old world, to hit a lick against what's wrong for what's right even though you get walloped for saying that word. Now I may sound like a Bible beater yelling up a revival at a river crossing camp meeting, but that don't change the truth none. There's right and there's wrong. You got to do one or the other. You do the one and you're living. You do the other and you may be walking around, but you're dead as a beaver hat.

  • Gen. Sam Houston  

    Where's Jim Bowie?

  • Captain James Butler Bonham  

    He's indisposed, sir.

  • Gen. Sam Houston  

    Indisposed? By God if you mean drunk, you say drunk, sir!

  • Captain James Butler Bonham  

    He's drunk, sir!
