Finnegan Quotes:

  • Finnegan: Like a fine wine, I'm aging gracefully, thank you.

    Mason: Like a fine wine my ass. You look more like a keg of beer to me.

  • Hanover: [Mulligan stands in front of the hatch door to the galley, and keeps them away from it] We're not staying here, Mulligan!

    Mulligan: I say we are!

    [Holds his assault rifle up to Hanover's face, Hanover holds his handgun up to Mulligan's face]

    Mulligan: Last stand, eh? We'll kick ass and take names!

    Hanover: You back off soldier, before I put you down!

    Finnegan: [after a few momens of silence] I once saw a guy put a fish in a bottle. He corked it, sealed it tight, and threw it to a baby octopus inside a fish tank. The octopus... he felt his way all around that bottle. In less than two minutes, he got the cork off, slid inside, and ate the fish.

    Pantucci: And your moral of this story is...?

    Trillian St. James: We're the fish. Look... the ship already starting to sink. What if they don't get here in time? I don't wanna drown.

    Finnegan: Now look, Mulligan, you can do whatever you want. But I am gonna get my ass to the surface, and pray to God my boat is still there, and those things aren't crawlin' all over it. Then I am gonna bail the hell outta here!

  • Mulligan: [the remaining six survivors are in the galley. Mulligan closes a hatch door] I say we stay right here!

    Trillian St. James: Are you insane?

    Pantucci: No man, he's right. There's plenty of food here. We can hold out til they rescue us.

    Canton: They're right. This is the galley for the crew. It was built almost entirely air tight in case of fire. With these hatches closed there's no way those things could get in here.

    Hanover: You wanna wind up in jail, Mulligan?

    Mulligan: Better there than in the belly of one of those things!

    Finnegan: [Finnegans head for the hatch] I don't know about you, but I'm gonna keep on goin'. It's our only chance.

    Mulligan: [Points his gun at him and keeps him away from the door] Back off. They're wiping us out one at a time. I say we make a stand. Right here. Right now.

    Pantucci: The whole damn ships infested Finnegan. We're not gonna make it back to the boat anyway.

    Finnegan: I'm not staying down here and that's a fact. Now back off that hatch.

    Mulligan: [Hold the gun up to Finnegan's face] I'll do it. I'll do it. I swear to god I'll kill you! I'm not murking about.

    Pantucci: Don't get hasty, man.

  • Trillian St. James: What the hell are these things?

    Finnegan: Real unfriendly.

  • Pantucci: Give me the parts.

    Finnegan: [Mumbling] I lom...

  • Finnegan: [Hanover's goons are beating up Pantucci] We got a contract: 20 hours out and back. You beat my engine man to death, it's gonna take a hell of a lot longer - which is ok by me since overtime'll cost you double rate!

    Hanover: He was nosing around in my cargo!

    Finnegan: Ok, so he's nosy.

    Hanover: Contract was "no questions asked."

    Mason: Yo, fellas, I vote we kick this lil' piece of shit overboard!

    Mamooli: Well, I vote we kill him!

    Mulligan: I vote we kill him, then throw him overboard!

    Finnegan: Well, we don't vote here, it's NOT a democracy.

    [one of the goons hits Pantucci]

    Finnegan: Ok, I'll say it one more time for the hearing impaired...

    Finnegan: [long pause] This could be messy...

I will show today that life is not some grace bestowed upon us by some outdated notion of an all-powerful...

    Finnegan: Get on with it!

  • Finnegan: You know, for men so obsessed with death, you think yourselves so above violence. Curious.
