Allan Quartermain Quotes in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)


Allan Quartermain Quotes:

  • Allan Quartermain: Well, we were the faster, but now we're the tortoise to his hare.

    Dr. Henry Jekyll: So, we're done?

    Tom Sawyer: No, we're alive. If M has any idea to the contrary, that gives us an edge.

    Captain Nemo: The sea is vast, he could be anywhere.

    Tom Sawyer: Yeah, well, I'm an optimist, now maybe that's a crime to you twisted so-and-so's but it keeps me from going crazy.

    Mina Harker: Your optimism's out of place.

    Tom Sawyer: You're wrong! Because we'll get out, man... at least, I will. That other agent I told you about... was my childhood friend. We were agents together until the Fantom shot him dead. Now you can be done, but I am not. I will avenge his death.

    Dr. Henry Jekyll: It's not about any one of us, Tom, it's bigger than that.

    Tom Sawyer: Yes, it is, Jekyll! The fate for the world is in our hands... the world! So M tricked you, he brought you all together and you walked straight into his trap. But the way that I see it, that's the part he did wrong... He brought you together.

    Dr. Henry Jekyll: He has a point.

    Allan Quartermain: And the boy becomes a man... perhaps a leader of men.

    Mina Harker: And Women.

    [Allan puts on a pair of glasses]

    Allan Quartermain: God, I hate getting old.

    [He aims the rifle and fires. In the far distance, the assassin goes down. Reed gapes]

  • Allan Quartermain: Jekyll, come on! We'll need Hyde!

    Dr. Henry Jekyll: No! Hyde will never use me again.

    Dorian Gray: Then what good are you?

  • Allan Quartermain: [after the exploration pod has been stolen] We can track it.

    Captain Nemo: Track it? I intend to catch it!

  • Allan Quartermain: Chilao!

    [a target is slung into the ocean. Sawyer hoists the elephant gun]

    Allan Quartermain: Aim.

    Tom Sawyer: That's easy.

    Allan Quartermain: Adjust for wind and target movement.

    Tom Sawyer: That's easy, too.

    Allan Quartermain: Here's the part that's not. You have to feel the shot. Take your time with it. You have all the time you need. All the time in the world.

  • Allan Quartermain: The Phantom is M. And the hunt is still on.

    Dr. Henry Jekyll: What are you talking about?

    Allan Quartermain: The Phantom is M. The same man who recruited us.

    Dr. Henry Jekyll: [trying to examine Allan's wound] Let me see that.

    [he is shrugged off]

    Captain Nemo: But how?

    Allan Quartermain: We'll get our answers. Where are the others?

    Mina Harker: [entering] Dorian's missing in action. And Mr. Skinner must have fled when he realized we knew.

    Allan Quartermain: [concerned] Sawyer?

    Tom Sawyer: [entering with a bloody lip] He'll live to fight another day.

    Mina Harker: [advances towards Tom, he draws back] Don't worry, I've had my fill of throats for this evening.
