Tom Sawyer


Not Gray. He's lived long enough.


Save your bullets. These men are MINE!

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 phantom 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.

If you can't do it with one bullet, don't do it at all.

Automatic rifles. Who in God's name has automatic rifles?

Very American. Fire enough bullets and hope to hit the target.

[to Tom, as he's dying] May this new century be yours, son, as the old one was mine.

[About Hyde] That was naughty!

[teaching Tom to shoot] Take your time. [Tom shoots and misses] Too soon, but that was bloody close.

[after having to put his glasses on before shooting someone] I hate getting old.

[after seeing Mina kill one of M's men] Boy. They told me European women had funny ways.

[Allan is teaching him to shoot from the deck of the Nautilus] Did you teach your son to shoot like this? [turns to see Allan has left]

We're alive. If M has any ideas to the contrary, that gives us an edge

Dr. Jekyll, at your service sir.

[As reflection, to Hyde] Bravo Edward.
