John Rawlins: "Where about you from?"
Trip: "I'm from around Tennessee. I ran away when I was 12 years old and I ain't never looked back."
Sharts: "What ya doin' since then?"
Trip: "I've been running for President. I ain't winning though."
Rawlins: "He's just a boy."
Trip: "He a weak white boy, and beatin' on a nigger make him feel strong."
Trip: "I ain't fightin' this war for you, sir."
Colonel Robert G. Shaw: "I see."
Trip: "I mean, what's the point? Ain't nobody gonna win. It's just gonna go on and on."
Colonel Robert G. Shaw: "Can't go on forever."
Trip: "Yeah, but ain't nobody gonna win, sir."
Colonel Robert G. Shaw: "Somebody's gonna win."
Trip: "Who? I mean, you get to go on back to Boston, big house and all that. What about us? What do we get?"
Colonel Robert G. Shaw: "Well, you won't get anything if we lose."
Trip: "You ain't nothin' but the white man's dog!"
(Rawlins slaps him.)
Rawlins: "And who are you? So full of hate that you have to fight everybody, because you've been whipped and chased by hounds. Well that might not be living, but it sure as hell ain't dying. And dying's been what these white boys have been doing for going on three years now, dying by the thousands, dying for you, fool."
