3.8 Flashes Before Your Eyes
WIDMORE: You know anything about whiskey?
DESMOND: No, I’m afraid not, sir.
WIDMORE: This is a 60 year MacCutcheon, named after Anderson MacCutcheon, esteemed Admiral from the Royal Navy. He retired with more medals than any man before or since — moved to the highlands to see out his remaining years. Admiral MacCutcheon was a great man, Hume. This was his crowning achievement.
This swallow is worth more than you could make in a month. To share it with you would be a waste, and a disgrace to the great man who made it—because you, Hume, will never be a great man.
DESMOND: Mr. Widmore, I know I’m not…
WIDMORE: What you’re not, is worthy of drinking my whiskey. How could you ever be worthy of my daughter?
The Admiral MacCutcheon that Charles Widmore mentions to Desmond was a character from a remake film of the classic, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (by Jules Verne). Adewale Akkinuoye-Agbaje played a character named Cabe Attucks in a remake of the film.
