In "We Have a Crisis," Reed tries to convince Washington that Benedict Arnold has nefarious motives
Reed: Stave off the bleeding
Save this nation while you can
Washington: I've never doubted him
He has always been my right-hand man.
Reed: But we have a crisis,
As of now, it's not too late,
When your right hand's diseased,
You have no choice but to amputate!
In "Gimme that Address," the muses encourage John as he prays before his long ride through enemy territory
John (praying): If you could find another poor soul
Who'd make this ride, and who'd do what he's told
Well then, I'd hardly object!
Just say the word, and I'll step aside,
I'd let me own grandmother make this long ride
I'm an emotional wreck:
Muses (praying): Find his grandma!
He's just a poor man who could use a little rest.
John: If you know a place I can go
to escape this hellish mess...
Then gimme that address!
Having failed to dig up any dirt on General Arnold, Reed and Josephine decide to invent their own.
Josephine: He went out one night to have a drink
Reed: We'll tell everyone he's a drunk!
His followers will turn against him
When they see how low he's sunk
Josephine: You are the most disgustingly evil man
I've ever known
Reed: No time for compliments right now,
I'm on a roll!
In "Revolutionary Gentleman," Ben expresses his doubt that he is the one to lead the patriots against the British
Ben: Would these sunshine patriots
know how to fight a war?
Or at the sound of English Cannon
Would they all retreat?
Who am I to lead them all
Against a might power
and save this nation from defeat?
I'm not a revolutionary gentleman
as all the history books will say
I'm nothing more than just a man content to know
a grateful nation will remember him someday.
