  • Welcome to the Mysterious Island guide. This show is based on the book by the French writer Jules Verne.

It seems uninhabited but a person called Captain Nemo is actually watching them all the time.

    • Neb: You're quite know that? Gideon: Just British....hard to tell the difference sometimes, of course.

    • Gideon: Neb, give me your hand! Neb: ( trying to hold on in raging water) I'll take you with me! Gideon: I shall be very cross if you do! (stretches out hand) Now, take a hold!

    • Captain: You're very perceptive, Mrs. Pencroft. The past is behind us...we can't change it. That's the tragedy......

    • Jack: ( referring to the Captain) I always think it's best to humor a man when he's going mad. Joanna: He's not going mad! He's just under a lot of strain. Jack: So are we all....

    • Spilett: (looking over contents of chest) It 's almost as though something or someone has anticipated our needs. Captain: Our needs or theirs, Mr. Spilett.

    • Neb: Captain, why didn't you say anything when you threw me the vines? Captain: Heh....because it wasn't us who threw it, Neb. Neb: Then.....? Captain: That's something we'd all like the answer to, Neb.

    • Captain: (addressing Neb's grave) It was always a wonder to me, Neb, that you bore no bitterness in the face of such injustice and I never said this to you that it was really only your good nature that got me through all those awful years of war. I thank you, Neb. I shall try to be worthy of your example. Goodbye! Forgive me, Neb. Forgive me....

    • Nemo: (as he gazes at his monitoring device) So you want paradise, Captain? Where the color of your skin does not mean torture and death? Where there is no hunger or pain? No, Captain, I shall you what it is to feel pain and endless nights and loneliness. What shall paradise look like to you then, Captain Harding?
