Captain Kidd

Capt. William Kidd: Governor, would you be good enough to tell them what we're here for?
Newgate Prison Governor Landers: Give heed you-you vermin. Here's news to your advantage...
First prisoner: Is the hangman dead, then?
Second prisoner: Out with it, Jock Nastyface! Is it that your mother's turned into an honest woman?
Newgate Prison Governor Landers: Silence you mutinous dogs! If another man speaks. I'll trice him up by the thumbs and flog him raw!
Capt. William Kidd: Tsk-tsk-tsk. Is that the way to win the love of these unfortunate gentleman?

Capt. William Kidd: Now then, me bullies! Would you rather do the gallows dance, and hang in chains 'til the crows pluck your eyes from your rotten skulls? Or would you feel the roll of a stout ship beneath your feet again?

Captain Kidd

Capt. William Kidd: There's none would be so loyal, nor fight so desperate, as cutthroats under sentence of death... if they knew that at the end of the voyage a royal pardon would be in their pockets.

Capt. William Kidd: Between their conduct and mine, your majesty, there will be little to choose.

Sidewalks of London

Sidewalks of London

Charles Staggers: There ain't no answer. You're after justice and logic. There ain't no justice, and there ain't no logic. The world ain't made that way. Everything's luck, see. And good temper. And if you can take a joke. The whole of life's a joke.

Island of Lost Souls

Dr. Moreau: She's never seen anything like him.
Mr. Montgomery: No?
Dr. Moreau: You and I don't count. The only reactions we get from her are fear and terror.
Mr. Montgomery: That's understandable.
Dr. Moreau: But how will she respond to Parker where there's no cause for fear? Will she be attracted? Is she capable of being attracted? Has she a woman's emotional impulses? I could scarcely hope for a chance like this short of London.
