Let Phileas Fogg go, Henry.
ROWBOTHAM: But your dragon...
I never wanted to hurt your feelings, but I've never really felt comfortable wearing it.
It wasn't my love story.
I have my own.

♪ ♪ Beautiful morning for an illegal flogging, Donaldson.
(crows cawing) ♪ ♪ Try to keep the crease, there's a good chap.
You think this is funny, Fogg?
Not in the slightest.
There's nothing funny about being flogged for something you know you didn't do.

We have a pardon from the governor!

ABIGAIL: Release him!

(bell rings) Release him.
PASSEPARTOUT (in French): It's gonna be all right, Monsieur.
(panting) All right.
♪ ♪ (ship horn blares) (ship horn blows) Welcome aboard the Carnatic, sir.
Thank you, I'm going to my cabin.
I'll unpack for you, Monsieur.
No, thank you.
A refreshing drink?
I won't need either of you until further notice.
I want to be on my own.
(people talking in background, seagull squawking) (sighs) I should have said I was sorry.
I should have told him the truth.
(ship horn blows) (door shuts) Not so secret now, Estella.
(footsteps approaching) May I join you?
(exhales) Have you ever heard the expression, "If you want something doing, do it yourself"?
I'm familiar with it, of course.
Why do you ask?
I think we should go for a little walk, Mr. Fogg.
I don't want to go for a walk, I'm rather busy.
Besides, we're in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
And that, Mr. Fogg, is why we're going for a walk.
(cocks pistol) ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ MAN: We have received correspondence: Mr. Fogg is missing at sea.
(yelps) We've been in situations more hopeless than this!
What could possibly be more hopeless than this?
You may believe this is all your fault, but I know it's not.
