Helstrom Quotes in The Son of Kong (1933)


Helstrom Quotes:

  • Helstrom: [stops Hilda in the streets of Dakang] Oh, ah, miss... I heard about your father. If I could do anything...

    Hilda: [ice cold] You've done enough. You killed my father.

    Helstrom: Killed? Why... what? The tent caught fire...

    Hilda: My father was beaten over the head. He wasn't burned. What do you think the magistrate will say to that when he gets here?

    Helstrom: You can't accuse me! You mustn't dare...

    Hilda: How do you know I wasn't? Unless you were? How do you know what my father said me before he... before he died?

    Helstrom: [scared] He... What did he say?

    Hilda: The magistrate will be here in a few days. I'll tell him.

    Helstrom: [tries to be threatening] You'd better be careful! What are you going to tell the magistrate?

    Hilda: You can just wonder about that 'till he gets here.

  • Helstrom: [sees Denham and Englehorn sitting in a Dakang bar] Carl Denham! Don't you remember me? Nils Helstrom.

    Carl Denham: Why, for the love of Mike. Helstrom! Sure I remember you!

    [indicates Englhorn]

    Carl Denham: Oh, this is Captain Englehorn. Captain Helstrom.

    [Englehorn and Helstrom shake hands]

    Carl Denham: Sit down.

    [to Englehorn]

    Carl Denham: Say, do you know who this is? The man who gave me the map of Kong's Island. And he wants to know if I remember him?


    Carl Denham: Have a drink.

    [pours Helstrom a drink]

    Helstrom: [to Englehorn] So, that was your ship came in last night?

    Englehorn: Mine and Denham's.

    Helstrom: [to Denham] I heard about you in Singapore. How you captured the biggest animal on earth and taken him back to New York.

  • Red: [after hearing about the last trip to Kong's island] He expect *us* to go ashore?

    [gestures to Denham]

    Helstrom: Sure. He's got to have a bodyguard, hasn't he? Say, you know there were a dozen sailors killed on the last voyage he made here?

    Red: Killed? By them animals?

    Helstrom: Yeah. But, you see Denham and the Skipper came out all right. Ah, but you don't have to worry. There are plenty of rifles aboard.


    Helstrom: If *I* were captain, I certainly wouldn't take my crew into danger.

  • Helstrom: Yeah, you're broke too.

    Carl Denham: Broke?


    Carl Denham: I'm shattered.

  • Helstrom: Oh, and I'm going to make you First Mate.

    Red: Is that so? Do you think we got rid of a good captain for a bad one?
