Captain Kidd

Captain Kidd

[from the scaffold]
Capt. William Kidd: So here's me bequest to them what hunts what I have hid and to their sons sons down through the corridors of time: greed that spawns murder; hatred that corrodes the soul; ambition - the foulest strumpet of all.
Heckler at Kidd's hanging: [to hangman] Hey, Dick - Dick Kent. Sell me a bit of that rope for a sixpence will you?
Capt. William Kidd: Save your money, me lads. You can have it all for nothing if you'll only step here and wear it!
[to hangman]
Capt. William Kidd: Hurry up, Kent. Can't wait forever.


--Charles Laughton (as Capt. William Kidd) in Captain Kidd

[to his dying father]
Jonathan Reynolds Jr.: Oh, say, the fishing in Mexico - there's nothing like it. It's not really fishing... it's kind of big game hunting. They have fish with teeth and horns - a throwback to the buffalo. You go out in a boat and the fish charge at you. You just got to catch 'em in self-defense. You and I and two machine guns are going down there next month.
