The kingdom of God is within man.

There is his sacred and divine temple.

Greenland's finest, gentlemen!

Whale oil you can serve at your table

One hundred barrels

of the finest spermaceti.

Sweet as early grass butter in April.

One hundred barrels.

I'd like to start the bidding off at 25.

- Do I see 25?

- (Man) Twenty-five!

Twenty-five it is. Thirty?

(Man) Thirty.

(Auctioneer) Thirty.

We're looking for 35.

(Man) Thirty-five!

(Auctioneer) Thirty-five.

How about 40?

- (Man) Forty.

- Forty. ls there 45, 45?

There's a 45 here.

Fifty I'm bid, I see 50.

Fifty it is, over there.

- Can I see 55?

- (Man) I've got 55.

Thank you very much, sir.

Sold for 55! All righty, then.

Oi, Stubb!


(Animal bleats)

Who you sailing with?

- Ahab.

- Oh. Reckon he'll have you?

I reckon he needs me.

Excuse me, I'm looking for a ship, a Whaler?

Try the Mary Rose.



(Stubb) To the left. You'll see it.

(Man) Two more carts here!

I'm looking for the Mary Rose.

(Laughing) He's just messing with you.

(Man) Spill that oil, you're gonna

work for me for the rest of your life!

(Man) Watch your backs!

Watch your backs!

(Chatter, clanking and hammering)

I thought we'd agreed to this, Mr. Starbuck.

She's not ready.

Double-pin her

and put her back in the water.

What is a week, Mr. Starbuck?

- As first mate, it is your job to ensure...

- It's what the captain wants.

Are you going to tell him he can't have it?

(People) J' 'Twas grace

J' That taught my heart to fear

J' And grace my fears relieved

J' How precious did that grace appear

J' The hour... J'

(Lively chatter, fiddle playing)

(J' People singing Hog-Eye Man)

J' And a hog-eye, oh,

she wants a hog-eye man...


Haven't got all day. Let's go.
