Withnail: Monty used to act.

Calamy, Midshipman:
Sir?


[everyone looks to Calamy as he addresses Aubrey]



Calamy, Midshipman:
Excuse me, sir, but Mr. Blankeney said that you served under Lord Nelson at the Nile.



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Indeed. I was a young lieutenant, not much older than you are now. And Mr.Pullings... Mr.Pullings was a snivelling midshipman,


[Pullings laughs and smiles]



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
still yearning for hearth and home.



Calamy, Midshipman:
Did you meet him, sir? Can you tell me what he was like?



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
I have had the honour of dining with him twice. He spoke to me on both occasions. A master tactician and a man of singular vision.



1st Lt. Tom Pullings:
Right. He always said in battle...”Never mind the manoeuvres, just go straight at 'em."



Mr. Allen, Master:
Some would say not a great seamen, but a great leader.



Capt. Howard, Royal Marines:
He's England's only hope if old Boney intends to invade.



Mr. Allen, Master:
Sir, might we press you for an anecdote?



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
The first time he spoke to me... I shall never forget his words. I remember it like it was yesterday. He leaned across the table, he looked me straight in the eye, and he said "Aubrey... may I trouble you for the salt?"


[the other men roar in laughter, Aubrey tries to contain himself]



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
I've always tried to say it exactly as he did ever since.


[his mood changes]



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
The second time... The second time he told me a story... about how someone offered him a boat cloak on a cold night. And he said no, he didn't need it. That he was quite warm. His zeal for his king and country kept him warm.


[Maturin sighs]



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
I know it sounds absurb, and were it from another man, you'd cry out "Oh, what pitiful stuff" and dismiss it as mere enthusiasm. But with Nelson... you felt your heart glow.


[him and Calamy share a smile]



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Wouldn't you say, Mr.Pullings?



1st Lt. Tom Pullings:
[sincerely] You did indeed, sir.
