  • (Mel Gibson) "I don't think the men will have it."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Oh, the men won't have it. Are they in charge of the Bounty?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "They might be if you insist."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Again, would you repeat that please. "The men might be in charge." What are you threatening me with?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "It's not a threat, it's a warning."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Oh, there are rumblings, are there?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "No, there is fear."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Around the Horn is the easiest way, the better way, and that is how we will go. Anything more?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "Don't put Adams under the lash."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "He was insubordinate, cowardly and insubordinate, he frightened the men, I did not put that fear there, he did. So he will be lashed and we will go around the Horn. Are you frightened to go around the Horn, Mr. Christian? Are you a coward too, sir?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "I am in hell. Hell, sir. Why are you being so damn reasonable now? god**** your blood to hell with mine, sir. god**** your blood."

  • (Neil Morrissey) "Do it, Christian. Kill him."
  • (Mel Gibson) "Just shut your mouth. You shut your mouth. I will run you through and then I will kill myself after. You get him dressed now. Get him dressed."
  • (Mel Gibson) "I am committed to a desperate enterprise. I have said farewell to everything I've been accustomed to regard as indispensable. But I suppose I have found freedom."

Anthony Hopkins as Bligh

  • (Anthony Hopkins) "God damn you, man. Don't you bloody cross me."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Row for your lives. We're chops and livers to them if they catch us."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "So, you think I'm harsh with you, hey? I've been at sea many years Fletcher, since I was 12, and in that time I've seen many men, many good men fall for island women in these waters. I've never once seen it come out well. Of course I understand the excitement and the -- but think to yourself, man. Could you bring a woman like that home to your friends and your family? No, of course you couldn't. They're not like us, Fletcher. You think I was harsh with you, but you needed someone to show you where your duty really lay, because you were at a loss, my friend. You may not thank me now but you will eventually. So, let's get the ship running again and get back to where we were before."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Three men jumped ship last night. Churchill was one of them. You don't seem surprised?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "Well no, now that it's happened I'm not, I'm not surprised."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Well, I must say I'm no longer surprised myself now that I see the example that's being set by my first officer. Just look at yourself, man, look at the way your dressed. Come on, you're no better than one of these natives."
  • (Mel Gibson) "Well, at least I am no worse."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Mr. Christian, I think your brain has received too much sunlight and your body overindulged in sexual excess."
  • (Mel Gibson) "I have done no more than any natural man would do."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "No, you've done no more than any wild animal would do. It always makes me laugh that whenever men lose their self-restraint they always say they're "natural"."
  • (Mel Gibson) "They are more natural than men who have nothing to restrain."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Mr. Christian, you will report to the ship by sundown tonight."
  • (Mel Gibson) "No."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "What did you say? No? Is that what you said? Is that what you said? No? All right, you will report to the ship immediately and you will stay on the ship. There'll be no more fraternizing with the damned degenerate natives of these islands by any of my officers or any of my crew. You comprehend my meaning, sir?"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Good."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "You will clean up this ship and yourselves."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Well gentlemen, between ourselves and home lies 2300 sea miles, the Endeavor Straits and the Great Barrier Reef. Now the crew is deeply demoralized and I must accept, as every captain must, the inevitable and theoretical responsibility for that. The actual and immediate responsibility, however, I place on you, my fellow officers who met this crisis with lethargy, impudence and flagrant defiance, publicly uttered. And perhaps for that I am also to blame. I counted on a strength of character which you do not possess. However, the cure for our predicament is discipline and I shall apply it with an even hand of course, but most where it is most required."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Do you really think you'll be able to command this rabble?"
  • (Mel Gibson) "I'll do my best."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Well I did my best, and I had the authority of the law. You're a dead man Fletcher."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Filth, sir. Filthy, Mr. Christian. Still filthy. Look."
  • (Mel Gibson) "I see nothing, sir, but your finger."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "I'll not have your vile ways brought aboard my ship, sir. Do you understand? Now you'll call up the swabbing party yet again. And this time you will make bloody sure that the decks are clean, or by God you will answer for it, sir. I'll not have any of your foul, filthy, gutter ways on board my ship. Do you understand? Good God, pigs in a sty have more comprehension of cleanliness than you buggers have. Now you'll get these decks clean, or by God I'll make you lick them clean with your tongue if you don't mend your ways."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "The Royal Navy is not a humorous institution, sir, and insubordination is no laughing matter."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Take no prisoners Mr. Christian."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "We are still faced with a long, hard voyage. I mean to make good use of every hour of sailing time, and to assist me in this, I am replacing Mr. Fryer with Mr. Christian, who will now act as executive second in command, with the rank of Acting Second Lieutenant --"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Mr. Fryer, come back here."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Mr. Fryer, sir. Come back here."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "I will dismiss when I have done with you, sir. Do you hear me?"
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "This is an outrage."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Mr. Fryer."
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "In all my years at sea --"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Your "years at sea"? Good Lord, man. If I'd known your nature, I would not have accepted you as boatswain of a river barge."
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "Must I suffer this before the men?"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "You will suffer my correction whenever you're at fault, sir."
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "What fault?"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "God damn your eyes, man. You turned your back on me."
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "Well for that, I apologize."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Very well."
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "But I protest."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "You protest, do you?"
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "I am Master of the Bounty."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "And I, sir, am Commander. By law. I am the first. Do you understand? God damn your hide. And now you may dismiss, sir."

  • (Philip Davis) "If I were you, I'd take the ship. That's all."
  • (Mel Gibson) "Why don't you, then?"
  • (Philip Davis) "I said if I were you. I'm not."

Indeed in the matter of his command of the Bounty's open launch we commend Lieutenant Bligh for his courage and exemplary seamanship. Will you please come forward, Lieutenant?"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "My lord, thank you."
