Humble Bellows Quotes:
Vallo: You've sold me Humble Bellows - and to a king's flunky!
Humble Bellows: Aye. 'Tis my modest opinion that no man can fly pirate colors who's not willing to sell his friend, his sweetheart, or his mother.
Baron Jose Gruda: Well spoken, Mr. Bellows.

Humble Bellows: So much for the trial. Now for execution.
Humble Bellows: There goes a good pirate, Stub Ear, to sell his wares like a fish peddler. Meaning no disrespect to the skipper, of course.

Poison Paul: But if the skipper pulls us through again, we'll be the ducks what laid the golden eggs.
Humble Bellows: Ye be thinking of geese, if you'll pardon the correction, Poison Paul. Geese... on a wild goose chase.
Humble Bellows: Be that bit of fluff El Libre?
Vallo: That's the bit of fluff that's taking us to him.
Humble Bellows: Thou hast a generous choice: the gallows, or the sea.
Prof. Prudence: [walks to Vallo] If it won't crowd you?
