Sgt. Christopher Royal Quotes in Dangers of the Canadian Mounted (1948)
Sgt. Christopher Royal Quotes:
Cpl. George Hale: Weekly report, Sergeant. Nothing in it as usual.
Sgt. Christopher Royal: What's the matter, George? Bored with your job?
Cpl. George Hale: As a matter of fact, I am. It sure isn't like the good old days when Dad was around - running down claim jumpers, smugglers and road agents. You weren't around then, were you, Sarge?
Sgt. Christopher Royal: No, I wasn't, but I saw enough killing and shooting during the war to last me a lifetime.
Skagway Kate: Sergeant Royal, what brings you over the line into Alaska? You can't make a pinch over here, you know.
Sgt. Christopher Royal: You ought to be the marshal, Kate. You run everything else around here: employment agency, gun licenses, game licenses. Why not the law?
Skagway Kate: Why, I'd never do. I'm too soft-hearted.

Sgt. Christopher Royal: There's nothing much to help here. The only unusual thing is an ancient Chinese coin.
Skagway Kate: Chinese it may be, but I wouldn't give you a drink for it. It's got a hole in in it.
'Oldtimer' Meggs: Let me see that coin. You know, there's an old story about a treasure ship belonging to a Chinese emperor. Came ashore in these parts looking for treasure. That was way back in the dark ages.
Sgt. Christopher Royal: I know that yarn! The treasure ship of Genghis Kahn...
'Oldtimer' Meggs: Yeah, that's the fella.
Skagway Kate: Well, if all the legends about Genghis Kahn were true, his ships landed everywhere in the world before Columbus was born.
