Hawkeye: [to the Hurons] Take me!
Maj. Heyward: [as he is being forced away] I told them to take me. Take me! My compliments, sir! Take her and get out!
Cora Munro: Duncan! Duncan, no!

Hawkeye: I do not call myself subject to much at all.

Maj. Heyward: There is a war on. How is it you are heading west?

Maj. Heyward: Might I inquire after the situation sir, given that I've seen the French engineering from the ridge above.
Colonel Munro: The situation is that his guns are bigger than mine and he has more of them. We keep our heads down while his troops dig 30 yards of trench a day. When those trenches are 200 yards from the fort and within range, he'll bring in his 15-inch mortars, lob explosive rounds over our walls, and pound us to dust.

Maj. Heyward: And who empowered these colonials to pass judgement on England's policies, and to come and go without so much as a "by your leave"?

Jack Winthrop: You're not coming with us?
Hawkeye: I've got a reason to stay.

Maj. Heyward: You there, Scout! We must rest soon, the women are tired.
Magua: No, two leagues, better water. We stop there.
Maj. Heyward: No, we'll stop in the glade just ahead. When the ladies are rested, we will proceed. Do you understand?
Magua: [speaking Huron] Magua understands that the white man is a dog to his women. When they are tired, he puts down his tomahawk to feed their laziness.
Maj. Heyward: Excuse me, what did you say?
Magua: Magua said... he understands English very well.

[Maj. Heyward aims a pistol at Hawkeye]
Hawkeye: Haven't you got anything better to do on the lake today, Major?
Maj. Heyward: [puts away his pistol] When you fall back into English hands I'll have you hanged!
