The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) Poster

Tom Goodman-Hill: Sanderson Reed


  • [Allan aims his elephant gun at a fleeing assassin] 

    Sanderson Reed : But he's so far away.

    [Allan lowers the gun with a grunt of frustration] 

    Sanderson Reed : Yes, I thought he was.

    [Allan puts on a pair of glasses] 

    Allan Quartermain : God, I hate getting old.

    [He aims the rifle and fires. In the far distance, the assassin goes down. Reed gapes] 

  • Sanderson Reed : Where is your sense of patriotism?

    Allan Quatermain : [stands up with a drink]  God save the Queen.

    [the other patrons of the club mutter an apathetic return to the toast] 

    Nigel : God save her.

    Allan Quatermain : [to Reed]  That's about as patriotic as it gets around here.

  • Sanderson Reed : They're indestructible.

    Allan Quatermain : No, just armor-plated.

  • [Chasing Moriarty, Tom Sawyer bumps into an invisible man] 

    Tom Sawyer : Skinner?

    [to Quatermain] 

    Tom Sawyer : It's okay! It's Skinner!

    [to the invisible man] 

    Tom Sawyer : What the hell are you doing here?

    Sanderson Reed : What makes you think I'm Skinner, huh?

  • Sanderson Reed : There is great unrest. Countries set at each other's throats, baying for blood. It's a powder-keg. The trouble of which I speak could set a match to the whole thing: War.

    Allan Quatermain : Wi-With whom, exactly?

    Sanderson Reed : Everyone. A world war.

    Allan Quatermain : That notion makes you sweat?

    Sanderson Reed : Heavens, man. Doesn't it you?

    Allan Quatermain : This is Africa, dear boy. Sweating is what we do.

  • Sanderson Reed : But you're Allan Quatermain. Stories of your exploits have thrilled English boys for decades.

    Allan Quatermain : That I know. And Nigel has done a grand job reminding me. But... with each past exploit I've lost friends, white men and black... and much more. And I'm not the man I once was.

  • [first lines] 

    Sanderson Reed : [to coachman]  Don't... wander... off.

  • Sanderson Reed : The Empire needs you.

    Allan Quatermain : But the question is, do I need the Empire?
