Oliver Cromwell: Does the king think that God can be bought with gold, trinkets and gilded rubbish?!
Oliver Cromwell: Do you think I don't desire that? Go home to my farm and my family? Very well. Go again to this king. Offer to him once more our terms. Oh God knows he should be well acquainted with them by now. Tell him he may sit upon his throne, but that this country will be governed by parliament and parliament will be elected by the people. Now, Sir Thomas, if you can achieve this where we have failed this trial will end.
Oliver Cromwell: When men run out of words, they reach for their swords. Let's hope we can keep them talking.
Dumbledore: Only a person who wanted to find the Stone - find it, but not use it - would be able to get it. That is one of my more brilliant ideas. And between you and me, that is saying something.

Captain Alex Brunel: You have to go back to the bombs.
Lt. Cmdr. Anthony Fallon: Persuade me.
Captain Alex Brunel: Twelve hundred lives.
Lt. Cmdr. Anthony Fallon: Not many lives that... I mean, not in the great scheme of things. Remember what the goldfish said?"There must be a god! I mean, who changes the water? " Specks in the universe, Captain! Launch your lifeboats.
John Morgan: It just occurred to me... I've traveled halfway around the world, at great expense, simply to kill a different kind of bird.
Captain Nolan: I brought this gun to shoot him. Yes, yes I did. But I knew when it came time to do it, I couldn't do it. So I got to thinking and I thought, Well if what-if what you say is right. That whales can communicate. Then I thought I'd look at him. Right in the eye. And I'd tell him the killing of his wife and his child was a terrible accident. That I didn't mean it. I didn't mean it. I'd tell him that I was sorry. I hope he'd forgive me.
