Quotes from the Movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Think of it: On the surface, there is hunger and fear. Men still exercise unjust laws. They fight and tear one another to pieces. A mere few feet beneath the waves, their reign ceases, their evil drowns. Here on the ocean floor is the only independence. Here, I am free. Imagine what would happen if they controlled machines such as this submarine boat. Far better that they think there's a monster and hunt me with harpoons...

Captain Nemo

There is hope for the future. When the world is ready for a new and better life, all this will someday come to pass... in God's good time.

Captain Nemo

We're interested in your opinion of this monster.

Reporter

My opinion? Frankly, it's rather low at the moment.

Professor Arronax

Look alive there! Get your range and fire, Carson! What's the matter?

Captain Farragut

She's showing us her heels, sir!

Carson

Well hit her in the heels then! Fire!

Captain Farragut

Aye aye sir! Run her out smartly!

Carson

I demand a fair trial!

Conseil

You've had your trial. The sea brought you, the sea shall have you back.

Captain Nemo

You cannot do this! This is uncivilized!

Professor Arronax

I am not what is called a "civilized man", Professor. I have done with society for reasons that seem good to me. Therefore I do not obey its laws.

Captain Nemo

There's a fork on your left, Mr. Land, or aren't you accustomed to utensils?

Captain Nemo

[mouth full of food] I'm indifferent to 'em.

Ned Land

You were sent to get food, not treasure! You can't eat pieces of eight!

Captain Nemo
