Overboard (1987) Poster


Roddy McDowall: Andrew



  • Andrew : [Andrew hands Joanna her earrings after they've drank tequila shots below decks with the crew]  You best not lose these again, madam.

    Joanna : [perplexed]  Again?

    Andrew : You will forgive me, madam.

    [clearly mocking her] 

    Andrew : "Andrew! I seem to have lost my ruby earrings somewhere between 64th and 68th street, find them."

    Joanna : [geniunely contrite]  I've behaved so badly. I don't know how you put up with me for so long.

    [Andrew raises his eyebrows] 

    Joanna : You've done so many wonderful things for me and I've never even once said thank you.


    Joanna : I'm sorry.

    Andrew : [embarrassed]  Apology accepted, ma'am.

    [he turns away and to the sink] 

    Joanna : [following him]  Everyone thinks I'm crazy around here. Do you think they're right?

    Andrew : [turning around to face her]  Oh no, madam. Oh no. You... most of us go through life with blinders on, madam. Knowing only that one little station to which we were born. But now you, madam, on the other hand, had the... rare privilege of escaping your bonds for just a spell. To see life from an entirely new perspective. How you choose to use that information, madam... is entirely up to you.

  • [Joanna is about to jump off the yacht and swim to Dean] 

    Andrew : [grabs her hand]  Oh no Madam. I cannot let you do this.

    Annie : What?

    Andrew : Not without a life jacket.

  • Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt : These gnats keep landing on my wet nail polish. I guess I'm supposed to walk around with their little corpses stuck to my fingers, is that it?... It's easy for you to say. You don't have to sit out here in the brine with your perm frizzing to oblivion. I look like a bushman.

    Andrew : [who's been painting her toenails]  ... I've finished, madam. Would you like me to put your jewelry back on you?

    Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt : No, I'm still tacky.

  • Grant Stayton : [brandishing a bow and arrow]  Halt. You treasonous tramp. Conspiring with the enemy at sea is MUTINY.

    Andrew : Pull.

    [kicks Grant overboard] 

    Andrew : [to Grant]  I am giving my notice, sir.

  • Andrew : Champagne for everyone.

    Joanna : Andrew, I'd like a beer.

    Edith Mintz : A beer?

    Joanna : [takes a swig from a bottle]  Mmmmm, good stuff.
