Bligh:
[Bligh is nervously waiting for Christian to get him so he won't have to sleep with one of King Tynah's wives] Enter.



Christian:
Uh, excuse me, sir.



Bligh:
Mr. Christian.



Christian:
Sir.



Bligh:
What demands my immediate attention?



Christian:
Well it could wait until tomorrow, sir.



Bligh:
[quietly] What is it, damn you?



Christian:
The ship is sinking, sir.



Bligh:
Good.

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:
Three men jumped ship last night. Churchill was one of them. You don't seem surprised?



Christian:
Well no, now that it's happened I'm not, I'm not surprised.



Bligh:
Well, I must say I'm no longer surprised myself now that I see the example that's being set by my first officer. Just look at yourself, man, look at the way your dressed. Come on, you're no better than one of these natives.



Christian:
Well, at least I am no worse.



Bligh:
Mr. Christian, I think your brain has received too much sunlight and your body overindulged in sexual excess.



Christian:
I have done no more than any natural man would do.



Bligh:
No, you've done no more than any wild animal would do. It always makes me laugh that whenever men lose their self-restraint they always say they're "natural".



Christian:
They are more natural then men who have nothing to restrain.



Bligh:
Mr. Christian, you will report to the ship by sundown tonight.



Christian:
No.



Bligh:
What did you say? No? Is that what you said? Is that what you said? No? All right, you will report to the ship immediately and you will stay on the ship. There'll be no more fraternizing with the damned degenerate natives of these islands by any of my officers or any of my crew. You comprehend my meaning, sir?


[shouts]



Bligh:
Good!

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?

Bligh:
So, you think I'm harsh with you, hey? I've been at sea many years Fletcher, since I was 12, and in that time I've seen many men, many good men fall for island women in these waters. I've never once seen it come out well. Of course I understand the excitement and the... but think to yourself, man. Could you bring a woman like that home to your friends and your family? No, of course you couldn't. They're not like us, Fletcher. You think I was harsh with you, but you needed someone to show you where your duty really lay, because you were at a loss, my friend. You may not thank me now but you will eventually. So, let's get the ship running again and get back to where we were before.
