So you may call me.

And the native name of your friend?

Queequeg, his father was a great warrior.

His name and his soul strains

from great fighters.

It is his face that tells a story.

If he can handle a thousand devils.

That he might, he has never

gone sideways for a fight.

He always has some on hand?

Another round.

- You're a good man?

Well tell me about yourself.

A wanderer an orphan,

the blood began to boil inside me ...

so I figured it's time

to move on.

Ah, an adventurer.

I guess I'm curious

all things in the world.

A poet!

Why are you here looking for Ahab?

I've heard that here

can register ...

to hunt dragons.

Together with the hunters to work

and for us to join Ahab.

It's true ...

the world is run by Dragon Oil.

And the city is the marketplace

for all traders.

Why the cursed man?

He is the best known of the dragon hunters.

That's it ...

that he is, my friend.

Want to tell me,

that you're a harpooner?

Yes, that's me.

Ballast for me!

Is there any ballast, Mr. Starbuck?

We are all ballast, Mr. Stubb.

But to hunt together with Ahab ...

you must answer to God.

Then you have the best harpooner


Are you sure

you're a harpooner?

He's just a fresh beginner.

And you're a fat pig skinned

should be for Easter.

Calm down, Mr.. Floss.

Let's see if he


A match.

This is good enough.

What do you, Mr.. Starbuck?

Would you harpoon it, the dragon

could throw?

You're always worth the

Mr. betting. Stubb.

Let's see how good your poor, boy.

Let us pass.

On the side I told you!

The large white dragon Ahab's legend.

Means you meet him dead.

Except, of course, old Ahab.

Mr. Starbuck, give the boy a harpoon.

I already have one.

A little small?

Okay, Mr. Floss.

Go my way.

Can you beat that?

Good shot.

Well that's something you

not see every day, Mr.. Stubb.

True enough, Mr.. Starbuck.

Well done.

Tell me how this thing works.

It makes the harpoon faster, and ...

- It was just luck.

How are you with a knife?

- Enough!

Whoever it may or not be?

The child of the devil himself.

- Go away drunk.

This is Ahab's daughter, Rachel.

Would you use it against me?

- No.

But if you want to register

the team ...

sign here!

Rachel, I told you ...

- Quiet, you're just an instructor ...

remember that!

You will compete as

the rest of the group ...

in an equal share of the profits.

There are plenty of hunters ...

but not many dare to take

against dragons.

The work is overrated.

A toast to one hundred dragons for Piquat.

Piquat ...

- Piquat, Piquat ...


He goes with me!

Are you sure

it's safe here?

Believe me

I do not need your protection.

We were just leaving anyway.

If that is Ahab's daughter.

Or should I say, Ahab's whore?
