SCROOP
I say we kill 'em all now.
JOHN SILVER
"I say"? What's this "I say"? Disobey my orders again like that stunt you pulled with Mr. Arrow, and so help me - you'll be *joinin'* him!
SCROOP
Strong talk, but I know otherwise.
JOHN SILVER
You got somethin' to say, Scroop?
SCROOP
It's that boy. Methinks you have a soft spot for him.
JOHN SILVER
Now, mark me, the lot of ya! I care about one thing, and one thing only: Flint's trove! You think I'd risk it all for the sake of some nose-wipin' little whelp?
SCROOP
What was it now? "Oh, you got the makings of greatness in ya!"
JOHN SILVER
Shut yer gap! I cozied up to that kid to keep 'im off our scent! But I ain't gone soft!

If you pardon my plain speakin', gentlemen, are you all... [screams as he swings his sword around]... stark-ravin', totally blinkin' daft? After all my finagling to get us hired as an upstanding crew, you want to blow the mutiny before it's time?
SCROOP
The boy was sniffing about.
JOHN SILVER
You just stick to the plan, you bug-brained twit. As for the boy, I'll run him so ragged he'll barely have time to think.

FEMALE PIRATE
Look, all I'm saying is, we're sick of all this waiting!
MALE PIRATE 1
There's only three of 'em left.
MALE PIRATE 2
We are wanting to move!
JOHN SILVER
Don't move until we got the treasure in hand!
SCROOP
I say we kill 'em all now.
JOHN SILVER
[grabs him angrily] I say what's to say! Disobey my orders again, like that stunt you pulled with Mr. Arrow, and so help me, you'll be JOINING HIM! [throws him at the barrel]
SCROOP
Strong talk... but I know otherwise.
SILVER
You got something to say, Scroop?
SCROOP
It's that boy. [smiles sinisterly] [Silver is unnerved] Methinks you have a soft... [pierces the fruit with his pincer] spot for him.
SILVER
[pauses, then regains composture] Now mark me, the lot of ya! I care about one thing and one thing only - Flint's trove! You think I'd risk it all for the sake of some... nose-whiping little whelp?!
SCROOP
[taunting] What was it now? "Oh, you got the makings of greatness in ya--"
SILVER
SHUT YOUR YAP! I cozied up to the kid to keep him off our scent. But I ain't gone soft!

JOHN SILVER
Now, you listen to me, James Hawkins. You got the makings of greatness in you, but you gotta take the helm and chart your own course! Stick to it, no matter the squalls! And when the time comes, you'll get the chance to really test the cut of your sails and show what you're made of! And... well, I hope I'm there, catching some of the light coming off you that day.

JIM HAWKINS
All that talk of greatness, light coming off my sails... What a joke.
JOHN SILVER
Now, see here, Jimbo...
JIM HAWKINS
I mean, at least you taught me something, "Stick to it", right? Well, that's just what I'm gonna do! I'm going to make sure that you never see one drubloon of *my* treasure!
JOHN SILVER
That treasure is owed me, by 'tunder!
JIM HAWKINS
Well, try to find it without *my* map, "by 'tunder"!
JOHN SILVER
Ohhh, you still don't know how to pick you fights, do ya, boy? Now, mark me. Either I get that map by dawn t'morrow or so help me, I'll use the ships cannons t'blast ya'll ta kingdom come!

[speaking to his crew] If you pardon my plain speakin', gentlemen, are you all... [raises his voice and swings his sword around] STARK-RAVIN', TOTALLY-BLINKIN' DAFT?! After all my finaglin' to get us hired as an upstandin' crew, you want to blow the whole mutiny before it's time?!
