You are a monster, and my father is a great man. You're nothing like my father!

Alice Marshall

You who murdered a hundred thousand Iraqis to save a nickel on a gallon of gas are going to lecture me on the rules of war? Well DON'T.

Egor Korshunov

If this works, you get to be Postmaster General.

President James Marshall

Grace: She couldn't stay your little girl forever Jim.
President James Marshall: I know. But I was hoping she could wait until she was 14 or 15... or 50.

Alice Marshall: I'm 12 years old, dad. In caveman days I'd be having children of my own.
President James Marshall: That's what we call progress, young lady.

Right lads, now, I know there's not a faint heart among you, and I know you're as anxious as I am to get into close action. But we must bring them right up beside us before we spring this trap. That will test our nerve, and discipline will count just as much as courage. The Acheron is a tough nut to crack... more than twice our guns, more than twice our numbers, and they will sell their lives dearly. Topmen, your handling of the sheets to be lubberly and un-navy like. Until the signal calls, you're to spill the wind from our sails, this will bring us almost to a complete stop. Gun crews, you must run out and tie down in double quick time. With the rear wheels removed, you've gained elevation. and without recoil, there'll be no chance for re-load, so gun captains, that gives you one shot from the lardboard battery... one shot only. You'll fire for her mainmast. Much will depend on your accuracy... however... even crippled, she will still be dangerous, like a wounded beast. Captain Howard and the marines will sweep their weather deck with swivel gun and musket fire from the tops. They'll try and even the odds for us before we board. They mean to take us as a prize!

Capt. Jack Aubrey

We are worth more to them undamaged. Their greed... will be their downfall.

Capt. Jack Aubrey

This is the second time he's done this to me. There will not be a third.

Capt. Jack Aubrey

Capt. Jack Aubrey: To wives and sweethearts.
Officers: To wives and sweethearts.
Capt. Jack Aubrey: May they never meet!

Capt. Jack Aubrey: Well, Stephen... the bird's flightless?
Dr. Stephen Maturin: Yes.
Capt. Jack Aubrey: It's not going anywhere.

England is under threat of invasion, and though we be on the far side of the world, this ship is our home. This ship IS England!

Capt. Jack Aubrey

There! I have you! You're completely dished. Do you not know that in the service ... one must always choose the lesser of two weevils?

Capt. Jack Aubrey
