    • When Patrick is keying in numbers to find the way in to the secret room he is singing Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again." This was made famous as a quote from the 1975 film Jaws. Originally it is a British Capstan Shanty from the late 1700's (Old England instead of Boston) used to keep the rhythm of the Capstan turning.
