Mutiny on the Bounty
Movie Quote Quiz

Captain William Bligh: What's your name?
Seaman Thomas Ellison: Thomas Ellison, sir. Pressed into service. I've got a wife, a baby.
Captain William Bligh: I asked your name, not the history of your misfortunes.

Lt. Fletcher Christian: He doesn't punish men for discipline. He likes to see men crawl.

Captain William Bligh: Mr. Byam, if you were loyal when Christian escaped, l would have found you dead.

Lt. Fletcher Christian: When you're back in England with the fleet again, you'll hear the hue and cry against me. From now on they'll spell mutiny with my name.

Lt. Fletcher Christian: But the prisoner is dead sir.
Captain William Bligh: Never mind, continue with the punishment.

Captain William Bligh: I'll live to see you - all of you - hanging from the highest yardarm in the British fleet.

Captain William Bligh: Can you understand this, Mr. Byam? Discipline is the thing. A seaman's a seaman. A captain's a captain. And a midshipman, Sir Joseph or no Sir Joseph, is the lowest form of animal life in the British Navy.

Factual error: In reality, Captain Bligh was never on board the HMS Pandora, and he was not present at the trial of the mutineers who stayed on Tahiti. At the time he was halfway around the world on a second voyage looking for breadfruit plants.
