How do I get cURL to not show the progress bar?

I'm trying to use cURL in a script and get it to ***not*** show the progress bar. I've tried the `-s`, `-silent`, `-S`, and `-quiet` options, but none of them work. Here's a typical command I've tried: curl -s http://google.com > temp.html I only get the progress bar when pushing it to a file, so `curl -s http://google.com` doesn't have a progress bar, but `curl -s http://google.com > temp.html` does.
