Jack: You know. Lizzie, I am captain of a ship, I could in fact perform a “marr-i-age” right here. Right on this deck. Right now.
Swann: No, thank you.
Jack: Why not? We are very much alike, you and I. I and you. Us.
Swann: Except for a sense of honor and decency and a moral central and personal hygiene.
Jack: Trifles. You will come over to my side. I know it.
Swann: You seem very certain.
Jack: One work, love, curiosity. You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it. To act on selfish impulse. You want to see what it’s like. One day, you won’t be able to resist.
Swann: Why doesn’t your compass work?
Jack: My compass works fine.
Swann: Because you and I are alike, and there will come a moment when you have a chance to show it to the right thing.
Jack: I love these moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.
Swann: You’ll have the chance to do something…something courageous. And when you do, you’ll discover something. That you’ve a good man.
Jack: All evidence to the country.
Swann: I have faith in you. Want to know why?
Jack: Do tell. Dearie.
Swann: Curiosity. Right. Curiosity. You’ve going to want it. A chance to be admired and gain the rewards that follow. You won’t be able to resist. You’re going to want to know what it tastes like.
