Julie: Don't give me any of that Sister-come-to-Salvation. Look, I'm not buying any. I know the routine. It starts out with a prayer, and ends up with a Bible in one hand and me in the other!

André Verne: But on plush cushions!

André Verne: I'll take all they've got, for a little of this. I don't know what you'll look like tomorrow, but right now, baby, you're the most beautiful dame in the world. Does that mean anything to you?

Julie: Not a thing!

André Verne: No. Supposing I wasn't a convict? Supposing I was sailing through on my yacht or a guy selling brushes?

Julie: Yeah, suppose I was Snow White!

André Verne: It don't make sense, here, this one will start you talking to yourself, listen,"So, God created man in his own image." How do you like that? Now, take a look at me. Do I look like a god to you? This forsaken place is full of gods, I suppose. Only, they're not working at it right now, they're gods' on a holiday! Answer that one.

Cambreau: It sounds simple enough. I think it means that each man has some of the qualities of God inside him, if he wants them and if he looks for them.

Telez: Obviously, you know men, how evil they are. Only God is good.

Cambreau: But, the good in man is God, Telez.

Telez: Only God is good. Only God can forgive. They stole my crucifix, Cambreau. Without it, I'm lost. I'm afraid.

Cambreau: A crucifix is a piece of wood, Telez. Only a piece of wood. The miracle is not in the wood, but, in the heart.

Moll: I see you brought a friend along with you, too. Always room for one more in the boat.

Julie: And if there isn't, you can always stay behind.

Moll: We'll cut up our rations with you and our water. What do you say?

André Verne: Big-hearted, ain't you Moll.

Moll: Why not. We're all together, aren't we? Everything is share and share alike, with us. With all of us, ain't it! With everything.

André Verne: Sure it is, with everything that's yours if not mine. Do you get that, Moll? And do you get it, you mugs? Take a good look, because that's all that any of you are going to get.
