The Devil's Disciple (1959)
The Rev. Anthony Anderson: [angrily] He's given me a debt I can never repay. *Confound* Richard!
Major Swindon: What will history say, sir?
General John Burgoyne: History, sir, will tell lies, as usual!
Dick Dudgeon: The rest of this story is pure fiction. Rest assured, you can believe every word of it.
Major Swindon: I can only do my best sir, and rely on the devotion of our countrymen.
General John Burgoyne: May I ask, Major, are you writing a melodrama?
Major Swindon: No, sir.
General John Burgoyne: [sarcastically] What a pity! WHAT a pity!
General John Burgoyne: Martyrdom, it is where one achieves fame without ability.
Narrator: Give a Major Swindon enough rope, and he'll always hang somebody.
