Davy Crockett (John Wayne) says his feelings about the word "repulic" in perfect English in the action war film, The Alamo.
DAVY: Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat - the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound as a man. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words.
WILLIAM: Crockett, I have, I believe, learned two things about you.
DAVY: Worthwhile I hope.
WILLIAM: You are not the illiterate country bumpkin you would have people believe. You speak in excellent and concise English when you wish - the bad grammar is a pose.
DAVY: Oh, a fella has to do a lot of things to get elected to Congress — I’ve kissed many a baby, too.
WILLIAM: The other is you came to Texas to fight with us
DAVY: Don’t tell my Tennesseans that. They think we came south to hunt and get drunk.
WILLIAM: They seem to have accomplished that.
