Quotes from

Jacques Paganel: An earthquake of the first magnitude!

Mary Grant: [singing] Cast away, cast away: trust in your star. You know I will find you wherever you are. Though all your dreams may be tossed by the tide, cling to your hopes: never cast them aside. Cast away, cast away, though you may be lost in the wilderness, over the sea: I will discover your cast away shore, and you'll be a cast away no more. Oh, you'll be a cast away no more.

Lord Glenarvan: Why would a shark swallow a bottle?
Jacques Paganel: What was in his mind, I don't know. I only know what was in his stomach.
