Tekla Kronen: Umm, I would like to know your plans.
Grey: Plans, ma'am? Well, they vary according to the drift of the current.
Tekla Kronen: I would like to know your plans about sailing.
Grey: Sailing? We sail tomorrow morning at sunup. But between now and then lies a whole evening.
Martinus Van Der Brig: I've never known a woman like you, Tekla Kronen.
Tekla Kronen: What are you selling now, Martinus Van Der Brig?
Martinus Van Der Brig: Myself.
Tekla Kronen: I have no use for such merchandise.
Tekla Kronen: Oh, those poor people. You took their money.
Martinus Van Der Brig: In exchange for hope! A home to build, land of their own!
Tekla Kronen: You believe all that, don't you?
Martinus Van Der Brig: I believe everything I say.
Tekla Kronen: You do sell a dream. I pray it will not become a nightmare.
Martinus Van Der Brig: I see we share a common insistence on the best, Captain.
Grey: You always share other people's belongings without asking their permission?
Martinus Van Der Brig: What better compliment, Captain, can one man pay the other than to feel at home in his quarters?
Martinus Van Der Brig: You're so much like me, Captain, I think you're almost my image.
Tekla Kronen: Could there really be two such people like you, Martinus?
Martinus Van Der Brig: You don't love a woman like that, Captain, you conquer her.
Grey: Conquer her? Why, you haven't learned how to lose.
Martinus Van Der Brig: Well, I never had adequate competition until you arrived.
Grey: Yeah, that's true, that's true.
Martinus Van Der Brig: Oh, that woman. Well, at least the rest of the group trusts me.
Grey: Yes, well they have to. You have all their money.
Grey: You're supposed to bring them horses, oxen, supplies.
Martinus Van Der Brig: Yes. Yes, that's true. there has been a delay.
Martinus Van Der Brig: A shortage. Not one cow in sight.
Martinus Van Der Brig: But I assure you, Captain, that this difficulty for Martinus Van Der Brig is simply a challenge.
Grey: (punching him) Now listen to me. This is going to be a challenge. The Enterprise sails tomorrow morning. If you don't have everything onboard by then, there really will be a shortage... of Martinus Van Der Brig.
Grey: Well, what now, Martinus van Der Brig? Going to give up your 24-hour lease on the world?
Martinus Van Der Brig: No, Captain, I think I'll leave the river to you.
Grey: Why, thank you.
Martinus Van Der Brig: Not at all, Captain.
