    Boy, first thing wrong is standing in front of the carriage. If I have to speak to you again, you're going to the other side!

    According to my calculations, including wind, elevation and speed of the charging soldiers we will be overrun before we can reload. Boy get the horses hitched up

    The first thing we do is remove the numbskull standing in front. The next thing is to remember that the cannon kicks back when it's fired, which means we can't stand so close behind it, either.

    Bonaparte? No. No.

    There’s another reason they are called “Napoleons” You see, when you stand in front of them you get “Blown-a-part”!

    Now sonny, unless you want to become the next Napoleon Blownapart then remove yourself from the point of the barrel!

    I'll give you to the count of 3 to get your filthy hands off my canon. I already called it.
