    Video: YouTube

    Captain Richard Phillips: "The Navy is not going to let you win. They would rather sink this boat."
    Muse: "I come too far. I can't give up."

    In an effort to talk Muse out of whatever violent action he's planning next, Captain Phillips assures Muse that the Navy will not give in to the pirates' demands. Muse on the other hand has very little to lose.

    You Had a Plan

    Video: YouTube

    Captain Richard Phillips: "You had a plan to take my ship and that didn't work so you thought you could take me?"

    Captain Phillips tries to talk some sense into the ridiculousness of the pirates plan. He asks them why they think the government will give into them after taking him hostage since hijacking the freighter didn't work either.

    You Know the Drill

    Video: YouTube

    Captain Richard Phillips: "Four pirates on board, four pirates coming towards us down the main deck. Lock down the bridge."
    Ken Quinn: "Yeah"
    Captain Richard Phillips: "Listen up! We have been boarded by four armed pirates. You know the drill. We stay hidden no matter what. I don't want any hostages. We stay locked down until help arrives. No ones comes out until you hear the non-duress password from me which is "suppertime." If the pirates find you, remember, you know this ship. They don't. Make them feel like they're in charge but keep them away from the important things like the generator and the engine controls. Stick together and we'll be all right. Good luck."

    As the pirates are moments from taking over the board, Captain Phillips gives orders to his crew. They are all trained for situations like this and he urges them to follow the orders so they will all get out safely.

    Shots Fired!

    Video: YouTube

    Muse: "Alabama, this is your final warning. Stop the ship!"
    Captain Richard Phillips: "Shots fired! Shots fired! Take the hoses."
    Shane Murphy: "They're coming in close, Cap."

    In the pirates defense, they did give the captain and crew a chance to surrender before boarding the freighter. The captain however declined, instead ordering his crew member Shane to turn on the water hoses.
