Captain Richard Phillips[edit]

  • Listen up, we have been boarded by armed pirates. If they find you, remember, you know this ship, they don't. Stick together and we'll be all right. Good luck.
  • You're not just a fisherman! You're not just a fisherman!
  • [to Muse] You said this was just business! Is this how you do business?

Abduwali Muse[edit]

  • I come too far; I can't give up.
  • No problem, Irish; everything gonna be okay.

Dialogue[edit]

UKMTO Officer: Maersk Alabama, you should alert your crew, get your fire hoses ready. Chances are they're just fishermen.
Captain Phillips: They're not here to fish.

Muse: Captain, relax. Nobody get hurts, no Al-Qaeda here. Just business. We want money. When we get paid, everything gonna be okay. The ship, where from?
Captain Phillips: The ship? Uh...America, it's an American ship.
[on hearing this the other pirates cheer]
Najee: Yes! Yes!
Muse: You, Yankee?
Captain Phillips: Me?
Muse: Yeah?
Captain Phillips: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yankee Irish, yeah.
Muse: [speaking to the pirates] [subtitled] From now on this one is called Irish, okay?
[The pirates laugh]
Muse: Okay, Irish. What items you carry?
Captain Phillips: What do you mean?
Muse: TV? Car?
Captain Phillips: Shipping TV, car? No, no, we just uh...we just got...
Muse: Dollars?
Captain Phillips: Uh..we do. Kenny?
Kenny: Yeah?
Captain Phillips: Kenny, what do we have in the safe? About what, thirty...thirty thousand dollars in the safe?
Kenny: Uh...yeah.
Captain Richard Phillips: You know, I think we have in the safe, we got thirty thousand dollars. It's yours.
Muse: Thirty thousand dollars? What am I? Do I look like a beggar?

Muse: Look at me.
Capt. Phillips: Sure.
Muse: Look at me.
Capt. Phillips: Sure.
Muse: I'm the captain now.

Captain Phillips: There's got to be something other than being a fisherman or kidnapping people.
Muse: Maybe in America, Irish, maybe in America.

Muse: I can't stop now, Irish.
Captain Phillips: The Navy is not gonna let you win.
Captain Phillips: They can't let you win.
Captain Phillips: They would rather sink this boat than let you get me Somalia.

Muse: Last year I took a Greek ship. 6 million dollars.
Captain Phillips: 6 million dollars? So what are you doing here?
Muse: Shut up, Irish. Too much talking.
Captain Phillips: The problem is not me talking. The problem is you not listening.

Muse: It was supposed to be easy. I take ship... ransom... nobody get hurt.
Captain Phillips: You had thirty thousand dollars. And a way to Somalia. It wasn't enough?
Muse: I got bosses. They got rules.
Captain Phillips: We all got bosses.
