Michael Gambon: Oseary Drakoulias
Oseary Drakoulias : The wire transfer came straight through from Kentucky, and the bank has agreed to gap-finance the rest. But there are a few hooks on it, so take a pew for a spell. Number One, the bank want a drug screen for everybody on the boat, before they'll forward the money.
Steve Zissou : A piss test?
Oseary Drakoulias : Yes, a piss test. Two, a stooge from the bond company will be riding along during the whole shoot, to keep you on budget.
Steve Zissou : Who's the stooge?
Oseary Drakoulias : A chap by the name of Bill Ubell, and there's not a damn thing you can do about that, Steve. Three, you must swear - legally swear - that you will not kill that shark, or whatever it is, if it actually exists.
Steve Zissou : I'm going to fight it, but I'll let it live. What about my dynamite?
Oseary Drakoulias : [to assistant] Phillip, dynamite.
[on a speaker-phone]
Oseary Drakoulias : I spoke with Larry Amin, and it's a pass.
Steve Zissou : In other words, you fucked us!
Oseary Drakoulias : Let's not cast stones at one another, my dear.
Oseary Drakoulias : Do you hear me, damn it? Do you?
Steve Zissou : No, I don't! I told you how to play it!
Oseary Drakoulias : Oh, bloody hell! You listen here, mate!
Ned Plimpton : Can I interrupt for a second?
Oseary Drakoulias : Who the blazes is that?
Ned Plimpton : It's me, Ned. Maybe this is nothing, maybe it's something. I don't know what your problems are, I don't know... but I just inherited $275,000. Would that amount make any difference?
Oseary Drakoulias : What sort of expression is the lad wearing on his face?
Oseary Drakoulias : Good lord. God protect that poor little stooge.
[On the phone, Oseary tells Steve that he has to flee the country]
Steve Zissou : Wait a second. They ripped off my film, my boat's broken, you're ditching me down the river... what am I supposed to do?
Oseary Drakoulias : Well, I must say, nothing's leaping to mind. Phillip, any ideas?
Oseary Drakoulias : No, he's shaking his head.
Oseary Drakoulias : We're a dying breed.
