Gen. George Washington:
Well, sir, I waited for you to broach this. What do you think?



Gen. Horatio Gates:
You would not wish to know, sir.



Gen. George Washington:
Then you have objections.



Gen. Horatio Gates:
Many.



Gen. George Washington:
Would you specify them?



Gen. Horatio Gates:
Gladly. Firstly, in order to attack, one needs an army. You do not have an army. Secondly, in order to attack, one needs soldiers. Your men are not soldiers. Thirdly, your men always go one in direction. To attack requires the other direction. Shall I continue?

Col. John Glover:
The boats are ready, sir. The men are ready as they're going to be, provided we can cross that damn river at all.



Gen. George Washington:
What was that?



Col. John Glover:
About the men sir?



Gen. George Washington:
No, something about not crossing the river? Glover, you have been a pain in my ass and a thorn in my side since the day I first met you. You'd have been a general by now, if not for your pithy bitching.
