Treasure Island

Synopsis: Former pirate Billy Bones boards at the seaside inn operated by Jim Hawkins and his mother and confides his dread of discovery by his old cohorts to the young boy. After Bones' death, Jim shares his treasure map with the reputable gentry, Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, who organize an expedition to recover the buried loot. Long John Silver, a charming but ruthless rogue, is able to infiltrate the ship with his pirate co-conspirators and mercilessly murders loyal crew members. In the subsequent struggle with the mutineers over the buried gold, half-witted marooned pirate Ben Gunn may hold the key to victory.

Genteel, I am, and a

dove at heart, mates.

Why, I know some seafaring men,

them as boarded a Spanish brig...

...all loaded down with

Castilian dons and their beauteous ladies.

And what did they do?

Genteel like me, ye thinks?

No. They slices them dons

like bread loaves...

...and feeds them to the sharks.

And what did they do

to the beauteous ladies?

Why, after courting their favor,

as it were...

...saving your presence, matey...

...they slits the veins

of their pearly white arms...

...and uses their blue blood

to warm their rum.

And then what did they do, matey?

Bless my soul, sir, what else was left?

There was the song, Jim.

Singing by all hands.

Now, come on. We'll all tip the stave.

Come on!

Come on, sing!

Bottle of rum, you old hag!

- Bottle of rum!

- "Bottle of rum!"

We'll tip it again now. Come on!

- Dr. Livesey.

- Mrs. Hawkins.

It was Mother's birthday. We were just

having a little entertainment, doctor.

Well, my compliments, Mrs. Hawkins.

- A little brandy, Jim.

- My pleasure, sir.

Come on, mates. Now we'll tip it again.

- Thought sure we were in for a storm, but...

- Hey! Silence there between decks.

You addressing me, sir?

Is it blowing a gale of wind

you can't hear me? What did I say?

I have only this to say:

I don't know you. But by your look,

if you continue drinking rum...

...the world will soon be rid

of a very dirty scoundrel.

I'll split you double, you...

If you do not lower that cutlass...

...I promise on my honor that you

shall hang at the next assizes.

And furthermore, sir...

...I'm not only a doctor,

I'm magistrate here.

And if I catch another breath

of complaint against you...

...if only for a piece of incivility like this,

I'll have you routed out of here.

Let that suffice?

I ask your patience, sir.
