Quotes from

Ned Land: [singing] Got a whale of a tale to tell ya, lads, a whale of a tale or two, 'bout the floppin' fish and the girls I've loved on nights like this with the moon above. A whale of a tale and it's all true, I swear by my tattoo. There was Mermaid Minnie; met her down in Madagascar. She would kiss me anytime that I would ask her. Then one evening, her flame of love blew out. Blow me down and pick me up, she swapped me for a trout!

Old Billy: Come on, Casey! This is no place for a clergyman's son!

Conseil: All those men. They didn't even have a chance.
Ned Land: They were sailors, same as me. Slaughtered by that monster you're trying to make friends with.
Conseil: Ned, don't...
Ned Land: I don't know about you, Professor, but I feel like a knife that's just stabbed a friend in the back.
