Steve Zissou


Steve: I hope you're not gonna bust our chops on this on, Bill.
Bill Ubell: Why would I do that?
Steve: Because you're a bond company stooge.
Bill Ubell: [scoffs] I'm also a human being.
Steve: All right, I take that back. How about a little teamsmanship?


Jane: Are we-are we safe in here?
Steve: I doubt it.

It's probably the last adventure I've got in me. I was hopin' to go out in a flash of blazes, but I'll probably just end up goin' home.

Anne-Marie: No. They all share one.

Ned: I'm gonna fight you, Steve.
[Steve hits Ned in the face]

Intern: This is bullshit.

Steve: Can you hear the Jack Whales singing?
Ned: [Tanker goes off] Beautiful. I wonder what they're saying.

I'm about to blow my stack. I turn my back, and the bullshit begins. Ned, you're a scumbag. And, Jane, you're a goddamn liar.

Those ****ing amateurs. You left your dog, you idiots!

Land ho! Port-au-Patois dead ahead! Port-au-Patois! Port-au-Patois! Ho! Ho! Ho! Land ho! Ho!

Steve: People say that when someone says something like that, it's because they're jealous. But it still hurts. It hurts bad.
Ned: That man was damn rude. He can go straight to hell.

Are you finding what you were looking for... out here with me? I hope so.

Oh, shit! Swamp leeches. Everybody, check for swamp leeches, and pull them off... Nobody else got hit? I'm the only one? What's the deal?

I still wish I could breathe underwater.

Ned: Captain Zissou my name is Ned Plimpton...
Steve: OK, Man.
