  • Go on now and git those weapons!
  • Yessir!
  • He wanted to arm the slaves in around the area so they can lead a small revolt. John hopes the revolt would lead to a widespread revolution.
  • When he finished raiding the storehouse, he seized a nearby factory rifle and held a few people hostage.
  • C'mon man, why you gotta be like this.
  • Please don't kill me! I have money!
  • Mommyyy!
  • Oh dear! I'm going to be late for my hair do!
