Quotes

Lieut. Scott-Padget: What is your name?

Wagstaffe: Wagstaffe. Percival Pallister Wagstaffe.

Lieut. Scott-Padget: Wagstaffe? Are you by any chance related to Admiral Wagstaffe?

Wagstaffe: Remotely, yes. He's a distant cousin.

Lieut. Scott-Padget: But he would speak for you?

Wagstaffe: Well, I'm quite sure that he...

Lieut. Scott-Padget: Admiral Wagstaffe - how well do you know him?

Wagstaffe: Intimately.

Lieut. Scott-Padget: You visit his house?

Wagstaffe: Oh, yes, often.

Lieut. Scott-Padget: You claim that, do you? Do you also claim to be a mad-man? For to have constantly visited someone who does not exist?

Wagstaffe: Not exist! Would I not know my own cousin?

Lieut. Scott-Padget: I invented him a moment ago.

Lieut. Scott-Padget: [Scott-Padget turns back to the Captain as he begins to exit] You may have the power of life and death over every man about this ship, sir, but I warn you: if we come through this voyage safely...

Captain Crawford: [Crawford looks up from his work] Yes? If?

Lieut. Scott-Padget: To have followed Admiralty instructions may not be quite be enough.

Captain Crawford: [Crawford smacks his desk, jumps up and approaches Scott-Padget] I will say this to you only once, sir: I will not be bullied or threatened and I intend to be obeyed! Your friends in London mean nothing to me! I assure you that while you serve aboard this ship, they will mean absolutely nothing to you! You can go now.
