Dr. Kersaint: Father Paul took your wife to the church. It seemed the safest place. I'd have gone, too, except I couldn't desert my patient.

DeLaage: That's the last you saw of her?

Dr. Kersaint: Well it grew so dark, you couldn't see the church from the reef boat. But when that bell stopped ringing all of a sudden, I knew what happened.

DeLaage: My dear doctor, I'm ready to give my wife and my friends anything I own in the world except my sense of honor and duty.

Dr. Kersaint: A sense of honor in the South Seas is about as useful and often as silly as a silk hat in a hurricane.
