Captain Nemo: Mr. Land, you saved my life. Why?

Conseil: What?
Ned Land: Get drunk.

Captain Nemo: The natives over there are cannibals. They eat liars with the same enthusiasm as they eat honest men.

Professor Pierre Aronnax, narrator: I believe I do.
Captain Nemo: What you fail to understand is the power of hate. It can fill the heart as surely as love can.
