Tough questions! I'd have to google most of them. Could only answer 2 off the top of my head, and think I know the answer to a third.

1) Tombstone (One of my favorites and that is by far not the best line. Answers to questions like... Where's Wyatt? "I have one for each of ya!" "You tell them I'm coming" etc...)

2) Full Metal Jacket... Likewise a great film. Private Pyle had a major malfunction!

3) Guessing here... Marines?

4) Red

5) Couldn't tell ya!

6) Zulu!

6b) Rourke's Drift

7) Guessing - Cambodia?

Cool No clue!

9) No clue!

10) 12... Complete Guess

11) South Dakota

12) I know Borodino was one... Can't remember the other without looking it up.

What do I win!!!

lol!

My Swashbuckler character could go into the insurance business and offer you a great deal on fire insurance in G8?



Or, gift the Worshipful Company of Woolmen a flock of sheep on your behalf?



Though it may be difficult to herd them through the houses on London Bridge ... I don't want to even think about ferrying them across the Thames on any of those small row boats working from the various steps lol!
