Treasure Island (1950)
Dr. Livesey: When do we sail?
Squire Trelawney: Better ask Captain Smollett. Five days, he's been selecting a crew. Six men, all he's got to show for it.
Dr. Livesey: Cautious, eh?
Squire Trelawney: Cautious? He pries into every seaman's past like a judge at a quarter session. When I threatened to step in, he told me to hire a sea cook, so, by Jove, I did hire a sea cook, right out of his own tavern! Ha ha! Fellow by the name of Long John Silver. I didn't waste my time poring over his credentials. All the credentials I needed was a taste of his ham and his buttered eggs!

[Last lines. As Long John Silver sails away in a small boat]
Long John Silver: Goodbye, matey! Good luck to ye! Ha ha!
Dr. Livesey: Blast him! I could almost find it in my heart to hope he makes it.


"John Silver's Return to Treasure Island: In Chains (#1.8)" (1986)
Dr. Livesey: Trelawney!
Trelawney: No, no, no, no, no, doctor. Enough of your shilley shalley. We sail for Jamaica on first tide.


Treasure Island (1990) (TV)
Squire Trelawney: Mutiny! By God, I'll see them hang for it!
Dr. Livesey: It's worse than Mutiny, Squire. It's murder. And if they're successful you won't see anything at all because you will be quite dead!
Squire Trelawney: Captain, you were right and I was wrong. I own myself an ass and I await your orders.
Captain Smollet: No more an ass than I, sir. This crew beats me!
Dr. Livesey: It's that Silver, he's a most remarkable man!
Captain Smollet: He'd look remarkably from a yard arm!


"John Silver's Return to Treasure Island: The Map (#1.1)" (1986)
Trelawney: [Joe has been captured] Now fellow, let's hear what you have to say.
Dr. Livesey: I fear you'll not get a word out of him, Trelawney.
Trelawney: A stubborn dog you think? But then you're a kindly and merciful sort of man, Livesey. I flatter myself that I on the other hand will succeed in losening his tongue!
Dr. Livesey: That is precisely what you will not be able to do. He does not possess a tongue.
