Eden:
And this is your way? Abducting women and children?



Raisuli:
I prefer to fight the European armies, but they do not fight as men - they fight as dogs! Men prefer to fight with swords, so they can see each other's eyes! Sometimes, this is not possible. Then, they fight with rifles. The Europeans have guns that fire many times promiscuously and rend the Earth. There is no honor in this - nothing is decided from this. Therefore, I take women and children when it pleases me!

Raisuli:
[during the final battle, Eden finds him tied upside down] Ah, Mrs. Perdicaris! The Baraka has not deserted me!


[a shot strikes the wall next to him]



Raisuli:
Cut me down quick before it does.

Raisuli:
To Theodore Roosevelt - you are like the Wind and I like the Lion. You form the Tempest. The sand stings my eyes and the Ground is parched. I roar in defiance but you do not hear. But between us there is a difference. I, like the lion, must remain in my place. While you like the wind will never know yours. - Mulay Hamid El Raisuli, Lord of the Riff, Sultan to the Berbers, Last of the Barbary Pirates.

Eden:
Do you pray often?



Raisuli:
I pray to Mecca five times a day.



Eden:
Is that so? I wonder how you find time, when you are so busy cutting off men's heads and kidnapping women and children!



Raisuli:
If I miss the morning prayer, I pray twice in the afternoon. Allah is very understanding!

Capt. Jerome, USMC:
It seems quite obvious, I would think, sir - we must seize the government and make our own negotiations.



Gummere:
[incredulous] Seize the government?



Capt. Jerome, USMC:
At BAYONET point!



Gummere:
[snidely; to Dreighton] Well, I certainly would like to see that old son-of-a-bitch at bayonet point, huh?


[chuckles]



Gummere:
But it's ridiculous; it's outrageous, it's lunatic!



Adm. Chadwick:
Yes, isn't it though? I think Teddy should love it!



Gummere:
But, what about the French, the Germans - the British? Why we're in the shadow of Gibraltar!



Adm. Chadwick:
[slams his hand on table and stands up] DAMN THE LEGATIONS!



Gummere:
[uneasily] You realize, of course, that if we fail in even the slightest way, we'll all be killed?



Adm. Chadwick:
Yes, and the whole world will probably go to war.



Capt. Jerome, USMC:
Gentlemen, if we fail and are killed, I certainly hope the world DOES go to war!


[raises glass as a toast]



Adm. Chadwick:
The world at war!



Gummere:
A world war? Now THAT would be something to go out on...
