Lt. Colonel Hal Moore ( We Were Soldiers ):

"I can't promise you that I will bring you all home alive. But this I swear, before you and before Almighty God, that when we go into battle, I will be the first to set foot on the field, and I will be the last to step off, and I will leave no one behind. Dead or alive, we will all come home together. So help me, God."

Braveheart was not Mel Gibson's first directorial effort. What was?
