Miranda: There is no other way once you're willing to tell the truth about your intentions here!

Captain Flint: I think that I have made my intentions very clear.

Miranda: No! You've been anything but clear. You say you fight for the sake of Nassau, for the sake of your men, for the sake of Thomas! And his memory. But, the truth of the matter is it isn't for any of those things.

Captain Flint: What the fuck do you think I am fighting for?

Miranda: I think you're fighting for the sake of fighting! Because it's the only state in which you can function. The only way to keep that voice in your head from driving you mad!

Captain Flint: What are you talking about? What voice?

Miranda: The one telling you to be ashamed of yourself. For having loved him.”
