RHETT BUTLER : I think it's hard winning a war with words, gentlemen.
CHARLES: What do you mean, sir?
RHETT: I mean, Mr. Hamilton, there's not a cannon factory in the whole South.
MAN: What difference does that make, sir, to a gentleman?
RHETT: I'm afraid it's going to make a great deal of difference to a
great many gentlemen, sir.
CHARLES: Are you hinting, Mr. Butler,
that the Yankees can lick us?
RHETT: No, I'm not hinting. I'm saying very plainly that the Yankees
are better equipped than we. They've got
factories, shipyards, coalmines... and a fleet to bottle up
our harbors and starve us to death. All we've got is cotton,
and slaves and ...arrogance.
