[Regarding Captain Queeg]



Lt. Keith:
Well, he's certainly Navy.



Lt. Keefer:
Yeah... so was Captain Bligh.

[at the Senior Officer's Mess Hall]



Captain DeVriess:
Tell me, Keith. Now that you've had a chance to study "The Caine" more closely, do you like her any better?



Ens. Willis 'Willie' Seward Keith:
The tour was very interesting, sir.



Captain DeVriess:
The ship too messy for you?



Ens. Willis 'Willie' Seward Keith:
[Keefer walks in] Well, that's a difficult question, sir.



Lt. Tom Keefer:
It's a ridiculous question. The question is, is this mess a ship?

Lt. Barney Greenwald:
And now we come to the man who should have stood trial. The Caine's favorite author. The Shakespeare whose testimony nearly sunk us all. Tell 'em, Keefer.



Lt. Tom Keefer:
No, you go ahead. You're telling it better.



Lt. Barney Greenwald:
You ought to read his testimony. He never even HEARD of Captain Queeg!



Lt. Steve Maryk:
Let's forget it, Barney.



Lt. Barney Greenwald:
Queeg was sick, he couldn't help himself. But you, you're real healthy. Only you didn't have one-tenth the guts that he had.



Lt. Tom Keefer:
Except I never fooled myself, Mr. Greenwald.



Lt. Barney Greenwald:
I wanna drink a toast to you, Mr. Keefer. From the beginning you hated the Navy. And then you thought up this whole idea and you managed to keep your skirts nice and starched and clean, even in the court martial. Steve Maryk will always be remembered as a mutineer. But you, you'll publish your novel, you'll make a million bucks, you'll marry a big movie star, and for the rest of your life you'll live with your conscience, if you have any. Here's to the real author of the Caine mutiny. Here's to you, Mr. Keefer.


[Splashes wine in Keefer's face]



Lt. Barney Greenwald:
If you wanna do anything about it, I'll be outside. I'm a lot drunker than you are - so it'll be a fair fight.

Chief Budge:
[Queeg is distracted while the Caine is turning] Hey, Meatball! Am I seein' things or are we about to run over our own tow line!



Meatball:
That's crazy; we can't be... we are about to run over our own tow line! What are they doin' up there?

Lt. Barney Greenwald:
Now you're learning, Willie. You don't support your captain because you like him; you support him because he's got the job or you're no good!
