Morph: [imitating Jim] "We're dead!" "We're dead", "we're dead", "we're dead"!

John Silver: Didn't your pap ever teach you to pick your fights a bit more carefully?
[Jim looks away]

John Silver: Bones? Bones? 'Tain't ringin' any bells. Must have been another cyborg. There's a slew of cyborgs roamin' this port.

John Silver: If I could maneuver a skiff like that when I was your age, they'd be bowing in the streets when I walked by today.

John Silver: Are ya now? How so?
Jim Hawkins: Ah, I've got some plans... to make people see me a little different.
John Silver: Oh. Sometimes - plans go astray.
Jim Hawkins: Not this time.

Jim Hawkins: Well, this has been a fun day. Making new friends, like that spider psycho.

Jim Hawkins: A little uglier.
Morph: [Turns into an uglier version of Scroop] Ha-ha-ha-ha!
Jim Hawkins: Pretty close.

B.E.N.: Unless he looks at me like that. Bye, Jim!

Jim Hawkins: What, the one-legged man?
Billy Bones: Aye. But also, beware runnin' with scissors or any other pointy object. It's all good fun, until somebody loses a - Ahhhh!

Jim Hawkins: I'm sorry your present didn't work out.
Long John Silver: Aww, Jim. Smollet sails by rules and laws. That's what being a captain is all about. Me, I sails by the stars.
Jim Hawkins: Stars?
Long John Silver: North, Jim. Find me north out there among them stars.
Jim Hawkins: [pulls out compass] Well, that's easy...
Long John Silver: [takes compass from Jim and holds it overboard] Ah yeah, but what if you don't have a compass?
Jim Hawkins: Long John, please don't drop it! It was my father's. It's all I have of his. Please... please...
Long John Silver: [hands it back] I'm sorry, lad. I were only fooling. How old were you when he died, then?
Jim Hawkins: Seven.
Long John Silver: I were eight when my father died at sea. First mate, he was.
Jim Hawkins: My father was a first mate, too!
Long John Silver: Was he now? By the powers, what a coincidence!
[points to the night sky]
Long John Silver: Now, Jim, that be Polaris, the North Star. Even in the China Sea, that's north.
Jim Hawkins: [points to the star] North. Polaris. So, we must be heading southwest.
Long John Silver: Smart as paint you are, lad! Smart as paint! Now, that gets ol' Long John to wondering: why would we be sailing southwest? The scuttlebutt among the crew is that, um, we're sailing for buried treasure... and, uh, someone on board has a map. 'Course, none of my concern, Jim. I'm just a ship's cook. Such matters are best suited to Captain Smollet. He runs this ship, not I.
Jim Hawkins: Come on, Long John. You could captain this ship.
Long John Silver: That I could, lad. Maybe someday I will.
[laughs]

[Billy Bones has apparently died]
Rizzo: He died? And this is supposed to be a kids' movie!

Gonzo: I'm not Jimmy-Jim-Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim.

Gonzo: *He's* Jimmy-Jim-Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim.

Jim Hawkins: Yes, Captain, what is it?

Jim Hawkins: [sung] I look around here and I want to cry.
Rizzo: Ah, me too.
Jim Hawkins: [sung] I feel like the world is passing me by.
Gonzo: It is.
Jim Hawkins: [sung] And I just can't help but wonder am I doomed to wash and dry? And is it a curse I'm under to do it till I die.
Gonzo: Oh, I hope not.
Jim Hawkins: [sung] When I could be an explorer...
Gonzo: Sure you could.
Jim Hawkins: [sung] ... sailing off to distant lands...
Gonzo: Wait! Not so fast.
Jim Hawkins: [sung] ... 'stead of spending every afternoon just getting dishpan hands. My future looks like nowhere that I want to be.
Jim Hawkins, Rizzo, Gonzo: [sung] There's got to be something better, something better...
Jim Hawkins: [sung] There's got to be something better than this for me.

Captain Abraham Smollett: Where to, Captain Hawkins?
Jim Hawkins: To wherever the wind may take us!
Gonzo: Off to Zanzibar to meet the Zanzibarbarians!
Rizzo: Oh, brother! Here they go again!

Dr. David Livesey: [looking at the treasure map] Say, I know what's happening here. You chaps are planning to sail to this island, aren't you? To dig up this treasure.
Jim Hawkins: Yes, but we must be quiet about it.
[whisper]
Jim Hawkins: There are pirates looking for this map.
Gonzo: [normal voice] Yeah, and they want to KILL us for it! Isn't that exciting?

[Jim and Gonzo have been listing the different directions of the compass and what lies that way]
Mrs. Bluberidge: To the northwest dirty dishes!
Gonzo: How does she do that?
Jim Hawkins: Might as well start. I'll wash.
Rizzo: I'll dry.
Gonzo: I'll break.

Jim Hawkins: That's the raging volcano? He's a frog.
Rizzo: Hey, hey, maybe he gets hopping mad.

Jim Hawkins: I hate my life.
Gonzo: I hate your life, too.
Rizzo: If I had a life, I'd hate it.

Long John Silver: Aw, hell, Jim. I could never harm you. You're honest and brave and true. You didn't learn that from me.
Jim Hawkins: I learned it from my friends, Mr. Silver. Now, take your oars and row away. I never want to see you again. Ever.

Jim Hawkins: Kill Captain Smollett, and you'll have to kill me.
Gonzo: Kill Jim, and you'll have to kill me.

Squire Trelawney: Well, gentlemen, this is definitely a genuine bona-fide treasure map.
Jim Hawkins: Really?
Squire Trelawney: Oh, yes. Mr. Bimbo told me so.
[pause]
Squire Trelawney: Oh, Mr. Bimbo lives in my finger. He's very smart. He's been to the moon.
[puts finger to his ear]
Squire Trelawney: Oh, thank you... twice.
Rizzo: I smell a bozo.

Jim Hawkins: Welcome aboard, Captain Smollet.
Mr. Samuel Erroll: And welcome to your lady pig friend.

Jim Hawkins: Here you go, your bread and water for the day.
Mad Monty: But I ordered shrimp scampi!
Long John Silver: It's more than y'deserve y'villainous dolts!

Blind Pew: [stroking Jim's hair] Oh a pretty little girl is it? Yes, take me to Billy Bones, ma pet!
Jim Hawkins: You've got it all wrong, there's no Billy Bones here, and I'm not a girl!
Blind Pew: I maybe visually challenged, but I can SEE, YOU'RE LYING.


Treasure Island (1950)
Jim Hawkins: Pirates, Captain Flint! Pirates!

Jim Hawkins: Everything he told us was a lie. I've been a fool, sir.

Long John Silver: Now, then, matey, don't ye take it so hard? Why, 'tis lucky you came along, or Ol' John here, he'd have nothing to bargain with. But that don't mean I'd harm a hair o' your little head.
Jim Hawkins: Liar! You let go of me!

[Mr. Hands chases Jim Hawkins up the ship's rigging into the crow's nest, but Jim threatens him with a pistol]
Jim Hawkins: Not another step!
Israel Hands: Jim, I reckon I'll have to strike my colors. That comes hard from a master mariner to a ship's yonker like you, Jim. But you're like Silver said: smart as paint.
Jim Hawkins: One more step, Mr. Hands, and I'll blow your brains out!
Israel Hands: Now, now, matey.
[pulls a knife from his boot]
Israel Hands: Matey...
[throws the knife into Jim's shoulder, who promptly blasts Mr. Hands in the face with the pistol, sending him falling into the water]

Long John Silver: The rumor is the map was yours too. You've not seen it?
Jim Hawkins: I don't know.
Long John Silver: It would be a large piece of paper that would look like a map.

Long John Silver: Jim, if you ever want help or advice...
Jim Hawkins: ...I won't be coming to you.
Long John Silver: Yeah, that's probably best.

Israel Hands: Do you think you could cope with killin', Jim? You got to be man enough not to care after it's all done.
Jim Hawkins: I could cope.
Israel Hands: You gotta be strong, in a religious way - or have no thought for God at all.
Jim Hawkins: I could cope.

Jim Hawkins: [to Long John] Changed sides again? I asked the same question on this very spot ten years ago.

Van Der Brecken: Christian? We are talking of Silver!
Jim Hawkins: With some people, it's better to keep them under your eye then out of your sight.

Isabella: I must go to my uncle in Mexico, he expects me. I have nowhere else to go.
Jim Hawkins: But Isabella...
Isabella: You must go. I must go.
Jim Hawkins: [sighs] If only we had time...
Jim Hawkins: Go please, quickly, 't was not ordained.

Jim Hawkins: Smart enough to see you've only one leg, sir.
Squire Trelawney: Jim Boy!
