Rifleman Hagman: Daniel Hagman, poacher.

Richard Sharpe: You a good shot, then, Hagman?

Rifleman Hagman: Aye, I can shoot, sir.

Richard Sharpe: Go on, then. Show me.
[He pulls a beret out of Hagman's belt, and tosses it into the air. Hagman fires his rifle. Sharpe picks up the beret and shows him the hole in it]

Richard Sharpe: You've defaced the King's uniform, Hagman. I could put you up on a charge for that.

Sharpe: Gimme a pick-lock, Cooper.
Cooper: Pick-lock, sir? Catch me with a pick-lock!
Harper: They did, Coop. But when you got out of Newgate prison, you got another set, and that's the one the officer wants.
Cooper: Do I get it back, sir?
Sharpe: Trust me.
Cooper: It's very hard to trust a man who wants to borrow your pick-lock, sir.

From Sharpe's Revenge:

Calvet: How do I divide the cheese, by merit or by rank? Who gets the biggest piece?
Sharpe: You do.
Calvet: Because I am a general.
Sharpe: No, because I bloody hate cheese.

Sharpe in the farm with Lucille...

"He hurried to the kitchen where, still naked, he stooped to riddle the stove..."
"Bonjour monsieur " Marie the old woman who was the last house servant left peered at him from the larder.
"You're up early" Sharpe said snatching his shirt to hide his nakedness.
"The one who rises early gets to see the best sights" the old lady said.

From Sharpe's Escape:

Sharpe: And then we arrest him, stand him against a wall and shoot the bastard, though no doubt you'd like him to have a trial first, Jorge.
Jorge: You can just shoot him.

Sharpe's Skirmish quote

Post by Jill55 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 8:52 pm

I am rereading all the Sharpe books - it is costing me a fortune because my local library does not have them all!

I love this line in Sharpe's Skirmish about Sharpe's ensigns

Sharpe - "Ensign" He shouted again.

"Dead, sir". Harper said. "Hit by a dragoon''

"God damn, another bloody ensign gone."

I found this one quite funny :lol:
Sharpe's Tiger (After Sharpe and Lawford were told they would have to be circumcised in order to join Tippoo's army):

Gudin: However, I cannot think that a man with a bleeding prick will make a good soldier, and your armies will be here in a few days, so I will suggest to His Majesty that the two of you serve with my men. We are few, but none of us are Muslims, and all of our soft-boiled eggs retain their full shells.
Sharpe: Quite right too, sir. And it'll be an honour to serve you, sir.
Gudin: In a French battalion?
Sharpe: If you don't flog, sir, and you don't carve up pricks, then it'll be more than an honour.

Come on everybody, this thread needs to be revived again....there are many books and many fun quotes to be posted still

From "Sharpe's Devil" Harper and Sharpe on route to Valdivia by ship, makes a stop at St Helena to visit Bonaparte who's been held captive there.

Harper : How in Christ's name did they ever find the place ? That's what i want to know. God in his heaven, but we're a million miles from anywhere on earth, so we are !

Sharpe : I suppose a ship was off course and bumped into the bloody place

Harper : (fanning his face with his hat) I wish they'd bring the bloody mules. I'm dying of the bloody heat, so I am. It must be a fair bit cooler up in them hills

Sharpe : If you weren't so fat, we could walk

Harper : Fat ! I'm just well made, so i am
