Lord Privy Seal Dennis Tipping: You really don't like women much, do you?

ffolkes: I do not. You see, I, together with my five elder sisters, was raised by a maiden aunt. Both my parents died tragically in childbirth. Until the age of ten, I was forced to wear my sister's hand-me-downs. Then when I married, I discovered to my horror that my wife also had five sisters, all unmarried, and all expecting my support. I find cats a far superior breed. Just on the off chance, I have made a will. I've left everything to my cats. I want it testified that I am sound of body and mind. Well go on!

Fletcher: Work out what can be done if one of them is hijacked.

ffolkes: Don't the armed forces have some ideas in that department?

Fletcher: Undoubtedly. But an oil production platform isn't a building or an aeroplane. It's miles out to sea and you can't approach it without being seen or heard unless you come from below.

ffolkes: Only a man of superior intellect is likely to think of a satisfactory way of hijacking a platform or a rig.

Fletcher: Exactly.

ffolkes: Therefore, I must put myself in his position and devide a means of doing so. And having done that, I simply work out how to overpower myself!

Harold Shulman: [Looking at the oil rig Jennifer] That's an incredible piece of work, Lou.

Lou Kramer: Well, she's the biggest ever built and the most expensive. Two hundred millions dollars, and six hundred and fifteen personnel, producing three hundred thousands barrels of oil a day. That's a lot of hair cream, isn't it Skipper?

Lou Kramer: I am the temporary captain of this tub and you're going to be taking your orders from me for the time being. And the quicker you get that straight, the shorter that time is gonna be, so let's just play patty-cake together and get this over with. Remember, luck favours the man with the most limpet mines and I've got a bundle of them. Two stuck to the underside of the drilling rig Ruth, and four planted right under your ass on Jennifer.
