Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana: If we are not successful, our grandchildren and their grandchildren will beg for crumbs from the Americans.

David Crockett: We're gonna need a lot more men.

William Travis: Colonel, I became a little heated with you in front of your men. It was ill-advised and not terribly professional.
