Narrator: Remember this... even the most impossible parts of this story really happened.
Hawthorne: I wouldn't have thought bravery would be a problem for you.
Charles Remington: Well, you hope each time it won't be... But you never really know.
John Patterson: What better job in all the world than build a bridge? Bring land over water. Bring worlds together.
John Patterson: Darling... you know how God invented liquor so the Irish wouldn't rule the world. Well, I think he may have invented being stubborn so we can be the best at something.
Mahina: You know, I also have killed a lion.
Angus Starling: How many shots did you need?
Mahina: I used my hands.
Nigel: Patterson the lion killer. I do wish I had been here for the hunt.
John Patterson: No, you don't.
Charles Remington: Oh, you're right. The devil has come to Tsavo. Look at me! I am the devil.
John Patterson: Well then you go too, you lack the courage to lead. Go! Tell all your men to go. But I will kill the lions and I will build the bridge. And you? You must go home and tell the wives of the men who died here that you fled with the others because you could not master your fear.
