Deep Rising (1998) Poster


Derrick O'Connor: Captain Atherton



  • [Trillian is breaking into the ship's safe until Simon, Capt. Atherton, and Cruise Security catches her in the act] 

    Canton : [clears throat]  Good evening, mademoiselle.

    Trillian St. James : Hello.

    Captain Atherton : Red handed. My God, what a cheap, little trollop you are.

    Trillian St. James : Good evening, gentlemen. I was just on my way out.

    [Two security men holds Trillian back] 

    Trillian St. James : Or not.

    Canton : A good decision. There's really no place to run. The nearest land is, what is it, about 600 miles, Captain?

    Captain Atherton : Near 800.

    Canton : [holding Trillian's rap sheet]  According to this fax we received - Oh, that's not a very flattering photograph, is it?

    Trillian St. James : What is it?

    Canton : You're wanted for burglary, robbery, forgery. Oh, and attempted murder.

    Trillian St. James : I can explain that.

    [Canton chuckles] 

    Trillian St. James : What?

    Canton : Six arrests, five convictions, and wanted in four countries. How does a beautiful woman as young as yourself amass such an incredible record?

    Trillian St. James : Trust me. It wasn't easy.

    Canton : I think it's because you're not very good at what you do.

    [Canton hits Trillian in the face] 

    Captain Atherton : Hey, steady on, Canton. No need for that.

    Captain Atherton : [Recovers his stolen key card from Trillian]  Ah, ah, ah. I believe that's my card, thank you.

    Canton : Captain, I forget. Do we have a brig on this ship?

    Captain Atherton : Yes, we do, sir, but it's not finished.

    Trillian St. James : [angry tone]  You can't put a lady in the brig!

    Canton : True, but you, mademoiselle, are no lady.

  • Captain Atherton : This is supposed to be your life's work, I thought.

    Canton : I spent my whole life, my entire fortune, building this ship. I'll be damned if I'm gonna lose it to a bunch of pencil-necked bankers.

  • Canton : But This ship is state of the art...

    Captain Atherton : Doesn't matter with the computer systems down... we are sailing blind... and with no bloody way of contacting anyone for help.

    Sonar Man : Sir? I've got something on my sonar.

    Captain Atherton : What is it, Collins?

    Sonar Man : I'm not sure sir... but whatever it is... it's big.

    Canton : Probably a bottom feeding whale.

    Sonar Man : Moving at 200 knots? Sir, I don't think so.

    Captain Atherton : Where's it coming from?

    Sonar Man : Directly below us sir... moving at 160 meters and still rising... 150 meters... 140 meters... 130... 120... 110... 90...

    Canton : [looks at a video monitor]  What are those things?

    Sonar Man : 80... 50 meters...

    [the Ottoia ram the ship]
