Quotes

David Callan: Well, better late than never, eh?
Toby Meres: Oh, don't be petulant, David! I could hardly storm the fortress on my own, could I?
David Callan: What do you mean on your own? You had Barker and Nicholls with you, right?
Toby Meres: Yes, but I didn't know how many they had. You should try shouting: "once more unto the breach, dear friends" and you'll find out just how many of them are mere acquaintances.
