Quotes

Captain Haddock: I thought you were an optimist.

Tintin: You were wrong, weren't you? I'm a realist.

Captain Haddock: Ah, it's just another name for a quitter.

Tintin: You can call me what you like. Don't you get it? We failed.

Captain Haddock: Failed. There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse. Don't you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don't you understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. There's something you need to know about failure, Tintin. You can never let it defeat you.

Captain Haddock: My memory isn't the way it used to be.

Tintin: How was it?

Captain Haddock: I can't remember.

Tintin: We've got bad news. We've only got one bullet.

Captain Haddock: What's the good news?

Tintin: We've got ONE bullet.

Ivanovich Sakharine: You may kill the boy, but NOT Haddock!

Allan: Oh, come on, sir, he's a rum soak! We should have killed him long ago...

Ivanovich Sakharine: [draws his blade] Do you think it was an accident I took Haddock's ship, Haddock's crew, Haddock's treacherous first mate? Nothing I do is an accident!

Tintin: Captain, can you get us to Bagghar?

Captain Haddock: What sort of a stupid question is that?

[gets up]

Captain Haddock: Give me those oars! I'll show you some real seamanship, laddie! I'll not be doubted by some pipsqueak tuft of ginger and his irritating dog. I am master and commander of the seas!
