  2. I may have punched him. It's a blur, sir. / He handles the financials? / You punched the bursar.
  3. A bunch of revolutionary manumission abolitionists? / Give me a position, show me where the ammunition is!
  4. And when push comes to shove / I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love

  6. Laughin' at my sister cuz she wants to form a harem / I'm just sayin' if you really loved me you would share him
  7. So I'm the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in New York City is insidious / and Alexander is penniless / that doesn't mean I want him any less

  9. We rise and we fall / and we break / and we make our mistakes
  10. I'm a general, WHEE!! / Yeah, he's not the choice I would have gone with / He shits the bed at the Battle of Monmouth
  11. No one has more resilience / or matches my practical tactical brilliance
  12. We will fight up close, seize the moment and stay in it / It's either that or meet the business end of a bayonet
  13. Hercules Mulligan, I need no introduction / when you knock me down I GET THE FUCK BACK UP AGAIN
  14. Awesome. Wow.
  15. This colony's economy's increasingly stalling and / honestly that's why public service seems to be calling me
