A chance to survive, so he'll come after us again.
A crew on a long voyage may easily fall into melancholy and violence.
A King, my lord. Descended from many Kings.
A savage King.
About two months. Round about the islands.
Administer the punishment now.
After taking stock of the meagre provisions allowed us,
Again. Will you repeat that, please? The men might be in charge.
Ah, my little ones.
All hands on deck!
All hands on deck. If you please.
All hands.
All they give is a latitude, 25 degrees south.
All they wear is tattoos. In wonderful places.
Alleged mutineers. Continue, Mr. Bligh.
Allison, get over here!
Almighty and everlasting God.
Alright, Smith, you may go and close the door, please.
Alright. Where are they?
Alright. You will report to the ship immediately. Do you understand me?
An activity they participated in wholeheartedly?
An indecent ceremony?
And a fine musician. We're lucky to have him.
And as civilised men we shall die. Have no fear.
And at sunset we caught one in our sail.
And by their manner, we do not expect our welcome to last much longer.
And circumnavigate the globe.
And flagrant defiance publicly uttered.
And from there, my friends, God willing,
And furthermore are willing to swear by it,
And get back to where we were before.
And he always talks of you as his very close friend.
And he was also a coward. Fletcher Christian at least had courage.
And he's in good health, King Tynah. He's very much alive.
And his bloody lordship on your back morning, noon and night.
And how far did you travel in that time?
And how long do you think the men can stand it?
And I am Commander, by law! I am the first. Do you understand?
And I have to report an act of piracy.
And I must accept, as every captain must accept,
And I quote: "To enquire into the cause and circumstances of the seizure
And I shall apply it with an even hand, of course,
And I've never yet seen it come out well.
And I've seen many men, many good men,
And if we don't? These men need a home, Fletcher. They've mutinied once.
And insubordination is no laughing matter.
And now you may dismiss, sir!
And once nearly ran a foul of an English frigate.
And perhaps also for that, I am to blame.
And put them on half rations.
And secondly, upon its successful conclusion
And slowly... make your way out to the launch.
And that her captain, Lieutenant William Bligh, is in the opinion of this court,
And that is how we will go. Anything more?
And that the Gods can be roused by the coupling of men and women.
And the Captain says he'll expect you this evening.
And the next one, please.
And then back to England. We'll circumnavigate the globe.
And then I will kill myself after. You get him dressed now.
And then we can forget the matter.
And there! And look at there!
And this green grocery trip will make your name?
And this time you'll make bloody sure that the decks are clean!
And to assist me in this, I'm replacing Mr. Fryer with Mr. Christian
And to try the said Lieutenant William Bligh
And tomorrow we will assemble to watch him receive punishment
And was it indecent?
And we have provisions or more enough to last us one week.
And when do you think they will be ready to transport in your opinion?
And when you see it, you'll remember my daughter and my grandchild.
And where we are to head beyond the reach of justice, I know not.
And who shall have this?
And who'll navigate?
And yet, Mr. Bligh, in your own log,
And you will clean up this ship and yourselves.
And you will stay on ship.
And your body overindulged in sexual excess.
And your safe and speedy return.
Any fool can steer a ship, sir. It's just knowing where to take it.
Anything for a King. Pigs. Bananas. Coconuts. Breadfruit.
Are you a coward too, sir?
Are you frightened to go around the Horn, Mr. Christian?
Are you in this, Adams?
Are you indeed? I'm not so certain about that.
Around the Horn is the easiest way. The better way.
As a result of illness and fatigue sustained at Cape Horn.
As I said, he sends his greetings to you.
As long as the officers can stand it, Mr. Fryer!
As our King George is descended from many Kings.
As soon as we have put about it will be safe to light your galley fires again.
At four o'clock we buried Valentine
At half past twelve today, James Valentine departed this life
At least I am no worse.
At least ten times we have touched land.
At that time, yes.
Away, you crew gunners.
Aye, aye, sir.
Aye, aye, sir.
Aye, Aye, sir. Prepare to make sail! Let go sheets and tack!
Aye.
Back down in the rigging!
Bananas are very expensive there these days.
Be brief!
Be quiet!
Because all I can promise you, lads, is relentless pain and hardship.
Because it is the quicker route, Mr. Fryer.
Because they believe that Captain Cook is immortal.
Because you know what hardship that means for honest men.
Because you were at a loss, my friend.
Bless these waters and absolve from sin,
Bloody disgrace. Now you'll be well advised, sir,
Breadfruit?
Breadfruit. Breadfruit's a very good idea. Yes, breadfruit.
Business, dammit. Any bloody business.
But I suppose I have found freedom.
But mind they appreciate the gravity of their offence.
But most where it is most required.
But the Navy Board would not heed either request. See?
But think to yourself, man.
But when men lose their self restraint they say they're natural.
But you needed someone to show you where your duty really lay.
By any of my officers. Or by any of my crew.
By heavens! I'll drink to that.
By now, there are many natives about us.
By the Right Honorable Lords, Commissioners of the Admiralty
Can you explain that?
Can't be helped. We shall all get to know each other pretty closely.
Can't even read.
Capitan Bligh.
Captain Bligh's surprised
Captain Cook was murdered in Hawaii 10 years before?
Captain Cook was our guarantor.
Captain Cook! He's well, and he also sends his greetings.
Captain's orders.
Charlie. If you only had a frock on, I'd ask you for a dance.
Charming tune.
Cheap fodder for the slaves on the plantations there.
Churchill said it was he who made the remark.
Churchill!
Circumnavigation.
Close reef, Mr. Cole.
Close reef, sir?
Close the hatches!
Come along, Mr. Christian.
Come here.
Come in, whoever you are.
Come on then.
Come on, Fulman. Move yourself.
Come on, get in line there.
Come on, get up on deck.
Come on, lads!
Come on, lads.
Come on, lads. No sense in this.
Come on, move yourselves.
Come on, Purcell. Remember that's what we're here for.
Come on, sir. We don't cross the Equator every day.
Come on, wake up. We're taking the ship.
Come on. Get going.
Come on. Keep them coming. Good lads.
Come on. You're no better than one of these natives.
Come, Bligh!
Coming up for sup, Mr. Heywood. Sir.
Commanded by Lieutenant William Bligh
Commend me to your parents and our loving daughters.
Commit the body to the deep.
Could you take a woman like that back home to your friends and family?
Couldn't be better, sir.
Court is assembled
Cross my heart. Paradise.
Dammit all, man, I'm expected to sleep with her.
Damn fools. Don't make it worse for yourself.
Damn you, man. Don't you bloody cross me.
Damn your eyes, man! You turned your back on me!
Dance!
Dance! Dance!
Dead ahead, sir.
Depend upon it, gentlemen.
Desist this madness!
Did not the savages carry out some sort of ceremony?
Disease and dirt than ever died by drowning.
Do it now!
Do it now.
Do it, Christian. Kill him!
Do they really go around with no clothes on?
Do you hear me? Are you prepared to make the best of it? All of you?
Do you still do that?
Do you think someone had better go and look?
Do you understand me?
Do you understand me?
Do you understand?
Do you understand? Good God, pigs in a sty have more comprehension
Doesn't seem to like fair weather, does he?
Don't answer back.
Don't argue with me. Close reef.
Don't let go on the pumps!
Don't look at him. There'll be trouble.
Don't make it worse, Quintel.
Don't old man me, Churchill. You haven't got a lucky face.
Don't put Adams under the lash.
Don't you agree, gentlemen?
Dr. Huggen, another glass?
Easy!
Enter.
Enter.
Enter.
Eternal rest grant unto him. And may he rest in peace. Amen.
Evening, Mr. Adams, sir.
Ever?
Every ship in the Royal Navy has a copy of that book and those charts.
Everybody in the boat! Prepare to pull away!
Everyone on deck!
Everything alright here?
Everything you need is here.
Except Bligh.
Excuse me, sir. I...
Eyes front, Mr. Christian!
Faster, man!
Fifty guineas says he's dead.
