Captain Haddock: I thought you were an optimist.
Tintin: You were wrong, weren’t you? I’m a realist.
Captain Haddock: Ah, it’s just another name for a quitter.
From The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
What I like about this is (for those unfamiliar with the brilliant Tintin series) Tintin is upbeat and optimistic pretty much all the time. In this scene however, he is downbeat as his enemy has just struck a vital blow (I won’t spoil it and say what). It’s a cracking quote from a cracking film-I would advise watching it!
