We can't go on like this.  I'm a trained captain, reduced to the status of a bum.  Look at us!  Nothing that reasonable officers of the navy demand as their rights.  No stewards, no sweethearts, no silver dining service.


What happened to your prizes?


That's what I want to know.  What happened to my prizes?  What happened to my prize agent?  Blackguard must have died.


November.  It's a bad patch.


Rubbish.  I haven't seen Nelson queuing up at the admiralty.  Look at this.  "Nelson Victorious Again."  Why doesn't he retire?


There's something coming! 



What is it?




A shell!


A shell?  Where's it coming from?  Shoot it!


No, no, I don't wanna touch it!


You must.  You must.  It will explode and destroy us all.  Use a pistol!


No, no, give me the gloves.


That's right.  Put on the gloves.  Do not attempt anything without the gloves.


Don't come, don't look.  I'm dealing with it.


I think we've been at sea for too long.  I feel unusual.  I think we should go ashore.

OMG, the gloves! Great use of the Hornblower caps there! XD

Hee! The gloves made me laugh. XD

*dies*

I watched part of Withnail and I on youtube, so I actually recognized this scene. Awesome adaptation! =D And the line about Nelson had me laughing pretty darn hard.

Oh hooray!!!!!!! XD I just love that scene in the movie. Probably nearly everyone can identify with that kind of squalor at some point in their lives.
