Captain Boomer (Character)
from Moby Dick (1956)
Captain Ahab: Have you forgotten what it was like to sit out there on that sea ice and watch your arm go gangrenous while we were waiting to be rescued?
Capt. John 'Boomer' Enderby: I haven't forgotten.
Captain Ahab: The months of surgery, the years of rehabilitation. Wondering why this happened to you. Asking yourself what kind of a God could allow such a thing? And then coming to the conclusion that he was either malicious or indifferent. And then realizing... you dont know which is worse. Such a thing cannot be allowed to live.
Capt. John 'Boomer' Enderby: I think Moby Dick took more from you than from me. Killing him won't bring back my arm and it won't bring back your leg. It won't bring any of it back. But whether you succeed or fail, how many people need to die?
