John Fryer:
What are we going to do, sir?



Bligh:
Well, we shall have to try and reach Kupang.



John Fryer:
Without charts?



Bligh:
Well, I shall have to try and navigate from memory, Mr. Fryer. It will take us close to the most savage islands in these waters, the Fiji Islands, where cannibalism is perfected almost to a science, and from there, my friends, God willing, we shall proceed on to the Great Barrier Reef itself, then to New Holland, and from there across the Timor Sea to Kupang. And now it will take us at least two months, and we have provisions and water enough to last us one week. So that is the situation, gentlemen, plain and simple.



John Smith:
Well we'll just have to make the best of it, won't we, sir?



Bligh:
Make the best of it, Smith? Yes! But will you? That's what I'd ask myself. Will you make the best of it? You hear me? Are you prepared to make the best of it, all of you? Because all I can promise you, lads, is relentless pain and hardship. Now if you're prepared to make do, and make sacrifices, and furthermore are willing to swear by it, I promise you our chances of survival are fair. You hear me? You all say "Aye"?



All:
Aye.



Bligh:
Good!

Bligh:
[in his log] I hope never to see Fletcher Christian again. Unless it is to see him hanged.

Bligh:
My dear God. I had hoped to avoid this.



Christian:
Avoid what, sir?



Bligh:
Damn it all, man. I'm expected to sleep with her. She's one of King Tynah's wives. A gift from one chief to another, as it were. Now look, five minutes after I go below you must call me up on some important business, all right?



Christian:
Yes, sir. What business?



Bligh:
Business, damn it; any bloody business.

Bligh:
The Royal Navy is not a humorous institution, sir, and insubordination is no laughing matter.

Christian:
William, about your decision to round the Horn.



Bligh:
"William"? Not "Sir", not "Captain"; "William"?



Christian:
I don't think the men will have it.



Bligh:
Oh, the men won't have it. Are they in charge of the Bounty?



Christian:
They might be if you insist.



Bligh:
Again, would you repeat that please. "The men might be in charge." What are you threatening me with?



Christian:
It's not a threat, it's a warning.



Bligh:
[sarcastically] Oh, there are rumblings, are there?



Christian:
No, there is fear.



Bligh:
Around the Horn is the easiest way, the better way, and that is how we will go. Anything more?



Christian:
Don't put Adams under the lash.



Bligh:
He was insubordinate, cowardly and insubordinate, he frightened the men, I did not put that fear there, he did. So he will be lashed and we will go around the Horn. Are you frightened to go around the Horn, Mr. Christian? Are you a coward too, sir?
