[at court, Thorpe explains that he stopped the Spanish ship and freed Englishmen being held as slaves]



Queen Elizabeth:
So you have taken it upon yourself to remedy the defects of Spanish justice?



Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:
Insofar as it lies within my power, yes, your Grace.



Queen Elizabeth:
And you conceive it to be part of your... mission to assault and loot the ship of an ambassador to the court? Captain Thorpe, do you imagine that we are at war with Spain?



Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:
Your Grace, Spain is at war with the world.


[the other Sea Hawk captains and the people in the court murmur approval]



Queen Elizabeth:
Enough of this! Listen to me, every one of you! Never again will you dare - in my presence - to condone your crimes under the mask of patriotism. No more of such talk, do you hear? And for the future let me warn you... that any unwarranted attack upon the person or property of Spanish subjects will cost the guilty party his head! His head, is that clear?

Dona Maria Alvarez de Cordoba:
I'm not in the habit of conversing with thieves. I thought I made that quite clear, Captain Thorpe.



Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:
Why, yes, all except your definition. Tell me, is a thief an Englishman who steals?



Dona Maria Alvarez de Cordoba:
It's anybody who steals... whether it's piracy or robbing women.



Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe:
Oh, I see. I've been admiring some of the jewels we found in your chest... particularly the wrought gold. It's Aztec, isn't it? I wonder just how those Indians were persuaded to part with it.

[first lines]



King Philip II:
The riches of the New World are limitless, and the New World is ours - with our ships carrying the Spanish flag on seven seas, our armies sweeping over Africa, the Near East, and the Far West; invincible everywhere... but on our own doorstep. Only northern Europe holds out against us; why? Tell me, why?
