RATCLIFFE: The men like Smith, don't they? I've never been a popular man. WIGGINS: I like you. RATCLIFFE: Don't think I don't know what those backstabbers at court say about me.

We didn't come all this way just to look at it. BEN: Keep it taut, lads.

Trivia
Pocahontas herself is now frequently cited as being one of the most beautifully and realistically animated characters in the Disney canon, her fluid movements mainly being attributed to rotoscoping; Irene Bedard, who provided the voice of Pocahontas, was also the physical model for the animated character; John Candy had provided a large amount of voice work into a character named "Redfeather", a turkey as Pocahontas's sidekick; The film's premiere was a huge event in Central Park. With over 100,000 people attending, it holds the record for the largest movie premiere; The film depicts Pocahontas as a woman in her twenties or perhaps late teens, thus making a romance with John Smith, who was in his late twenties at the time, more acceptable; The first film to feature Mel Gibson singing.
