Jonathan Clark Quotes:

  • Jonathan Clark: ...As for your countess Solaniva, you can tell the 'ol wench she can swim to Alaska for all I care.

  • Jonathan Clark: We *shall* be married!

    Countess Marina Selanova: After the hanging? Or before?

  • Eustace, Hotel Clerk: [indicating the Portugee] Er, this gentleman is with your party?

    Jonathan Clark: This gentleman is no gentleman. He's a sea-going thief who makes his living stealing seals from the Russians. He neither bathes, shaves, nor knows the feel of good clean linen.

    Portugee: He knows me pretty good.
