  • Quotes

    • McAvity: Joe Bleak had no right giving that stuff away. It belonged to us.
      Jim: You're going to find it hard to argue with a dead man.
      Boatman: It's like arguing with a ghost.

    • McAvity: You're looking fine, Celia. The only woman I know who could thrive on a sea-bitten island.

    • Celia: Mr. West, tell me, why does a man seek danger as a career?
      Jim: I prefer the kind of hunting where you don't put the trophies on the wall, that's all.

    • Alicia: All this talk about ghosts. It's nonsense. I've lived on Bleak Island ever since I was a little girl. And I've never seen one.
      McAvity: Only the old are close enough to the grave to know about that, my dear.

    • Sir Nigel: There's one thing I can't stand, Mr. Krone. Incompetence in a criminal.
