The captain wants to see you

on the deck, Silver.

You want a hand up?


Look at me.

Is the captain dancing so?

How much?

- So we go to the island tomorrow.

- Yes, I do.

- Bank the deposit.

- I do.

You're gonna


This is it now, Silver.

These days are done.

- You're disbanding the crew?

- No.

I'm going to kill the crew.

There's a jolly boat

down in the water.

Get the men in there,

take your chances.

Put your muzzles up, Billy Bones.

I said, go down

or you will be blown down.

That treasure you're taking,

Captain, ain't yours to steal it.

He's getting his words in a

twist but there's truth there.


We've all shared the thieving.

And the dying.

I am the law on this ship.

And I'm sharing with none.

Now, I tot things up.

I know,

cos it's tattooed on my brain

which each man here is entitled to.

Let's disband if that's what's due.

But let us all have the lives

we have earned, Flint.

Let us share in...

- You talk too much, John Silver.

- Get to the jolly boat!

Get off this ship.

Help Pew!

I don't know how, Mr Silver.

I can't see!

A blade! Give me a blade1

Give me a blade!

My condolences on William's death.

Thank you, Dr Livesey.

Your husband was a good man.

A good friend.



You'll need to step up now.

For your mother.

If there's anything you need

or I can do professionally

- or as your father's friend...

- The inn is open, so...

I expect we'll be seeing you.

..then call on me.

Yes, Jim?

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum.

Drink and the devil

had done for the rest.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum.

We're not open today, sir.

Let's have the rum, boy.

Let's be having it.

The boy told you, we're not open.

Having it now.

Of course, sir.

This is a handy cove, this place.

I want to speak to the man here.

I'm the man here.

- You get much company?

- Just locals.

Bristol traffic

stays to the High Road.

- Then this will be me then.

- We don't do rooms.

Yes, we do.

- We do.

- Jim.

If you're paying.

Oh, I'm paying.

Yeah, I'm paying.

The room,

the bacon and the eggs

is all I want.

What do we call you then, sir?

You can call me the captain.

That's what you say.

This is the room, sir.

I need you to do something for me,



I want to know the minute any

seafaring man comes down that track.

And one of these will be yours.

Each week.

No seafaring men.

And keep the grog coming,

let's keep these horrors away.

Set with me, my captain.

Are you Captain Flint?


Served with Captain Flint, I did.

He was my man of honour, Jim.

Biggest dog in the sea.

He would bite your legs off, Jimmy.

He would bite your fingers off

to get in your rings.

And he was my captain.

Flint would line up the officers,

he would bind them tight,

chain cannonballs to their feet,

throw them over the side

to see if they floated.

But he had honour now.


He was not of bitterness.

Send him off on the big wide

in little jolly boats.

Letting them take the chances.

It was mercy, was it?

- You want another one, Doctor?

- No, no.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of the rum.

Drink and the Devil

and had done for the rest.

He's a bit of life, isn't he?

He drinks us dry.

If only he'd start paying.

And Cookey's throat

was marked belike.

How are you?

It's a struggle, Doctor,

as you know.

- Here's some for what he owes.

- No.


And there they lay

and the soggy skies.

Dripped all day long

in unstaring eyes.

In murk upset and foul surprise!

Is that my mate Billy's?

Don't go near the bucket.

It's evil.


Eggs and bacon, Jim!

I want my breakfast.
