  • (Guy Pearce) "I'm sorry that you are humiliated. The combination of Paris and me is hardly a recipe for fidelity, is it? But since my attempts at discretion have evidently failed, there seems little point in keeping up pretenses. It's actually quite -- liberating. Wouldn't you say?"
  • (Dagmara Domińczyk) "Albert, I found the note you left explaining where you'd gone. But now I must explain something to you. Where you've really come from. Albert, you are the son of Edmond Dantes. The man you know as the Count of Monte Cristo."

  • (JB Blanc) "So, mi amici, I would ask who you are, but in view of your shredded clothes and the fact that the Chateau d'If is two miles away -- what's the point? As for me, I am Luigi Vampa, a smuggler and a thief. My men and I have come to this island to bury alive one of our number who attempted to keep some stolen gold for himself instead of sharing it with his comrades. Interestingly enough, there are some of his more loyal friends who are insisting that I grant him mercy. Which, of course, I cannot do, or I would quickly lose control of the whole crew. That is why you are such a fortunate find."
  • (Jim Caviezel) "Why is that?"
  • (JB Blanc) "You provide me with a way to show a little mercy to Jacopo; that maggot you see tied up over there; while at the same time not appearing weak. And as a bonus, the lads will get to see a little sport as well."
  • (Jim Caviezel) "How do I accomplish all this?"
  • (JB Blanc) "We watch you and Jacopo fight to the death. If Jacopo wins, we welcome him back to the crew. If you win, I have given Jacopo the chance to live, even if he did not take advantage of it, and you can take his place on the boat."
  • (Jim Caviezel) "What if I win and I don't want to be a smuggler?"
  • (JB Blanc) "Then we slit your throat, and we're a bit shorthanded."
  • (Jim Caviezel) "I find that smuggling is the life for me, and would be delighted to kill your friend the maggot."
  • (JB Blanc) "Oh, and by the way, Jacopo is the best knife fighter I have ever seen."
  • (Jim Caviezel) "Perhaps you should get out more --"
  • (JB Blanc) "Release Jacopo, and give him back his knife. And we'll let the games begin --"
  • (JB Blanc) "Release Jacopo, and give him back his knife. And we'll let the games begin."
  • (JB Blanc) "Oh, and by the way, Jacopo is the best knife fighter I have ever seen."
  • (Jim Caviezel) "Perhaps you should get out more."
