Video (5:00 to 10:00)




Frost Michaels, Passenger: Guys guys gotta check this out it’s logged in everywhere you can’t see 10 feet past your nose — it’s so surreal . . . What’s the matter?

Stack, First Mate: It’s pea soup out there; can’t even see the anchor at the end of the bow. Think we ought to call thing in, cap?
Captain Burroughs: Yeah go ahead and leave the position. Gotta find a way to steer around this.

Frost Michaels, Passenger: You guys need a little fresh air: you knew there was gonna be some weather, right?

Lindsey Stevens, Passenger: Fresh air?
Frost Michaels, Passenger: Yes fresh air: it’s invigorating!
Lindsey Stevens: Frost, this is worse than the bungee-jumping!
Frost Michaels, Passenger: What do you mean worse bungee-jumping? You loved that!
Cole Stevens, Passenger: I cracked two ribs.
Frost: But your bounce back, right?
Lindsey Stevens, Passenger: It’s been like this for two weeks — I can’t handle it!

Stack, First Mate: Nothing. I got nothing at 11 at 16 haystack.
Captain Burroughs: Hey Stack . . . Check it out.
Frost Michaels: Okay, okay, you know what you need? You need a little group photo.
Lindsey Stevens: Don’t you dare ask us to say cheese.
Frost Michaels: You see that’s what you need: a little say cheese humor I’m looking for. Okay come on now, one to three: one . . .

Captain Burroughs: What’s that?
Frost Michaels: Two, three . . .

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Frost Michaels: Karen, you okay?
Karen Michaels: Oh yeah; I got a killer headache!
Frost Michaels: What the hell happened?

Cole Stevens: Lindsay?

Captain Burroughs: Well, looks like we made it through the storm.
Frost: Storm?
Karen: Where are we?

Cole: Cap, what’s our position? How far away are we from San Juan?
Captain: Look, this electrical storm knocked out the engine; I have do electricity, no radar, nothing. Barometers spinning like a top I don’t know what’s going on.

Stack, First Mate: Hey captain; we’re pretty much dead in the water.
Captain: Well, might as well check the engines . . . probably something electrical. Stack: Reservoir cracked: most of my freshwater drained out before I could get down there to stop it. Barometers all screwed up too.
Captain: Stack, can we try to keep everything positive down there?
Stack: Yes, sir.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Karen: Land!
Lindsey: Thank you, God.
Cole: What island is it?
Captain: You know what? There shouldn’t be any land out here for miles.
Frost: Well maybe the storm blew us off course. Are you sure you don’t know our position?
Stack: It’s hard to tell with the instruments out.
Karen: The instruments are out?
Captain: I said it’s difficult; it’s not impossible . . . Stack is working on getting the engine started. Stack?
Stack: Yes sir.

Captain: Anyway, it looks like the tide is moving us towards that island.
Lindsey: Finally some good news.
Captain: Well the anchor’s set; I think she’ll hold. So what do you say we take the zodiac and get some land under our feet?
Lindsey and Karen: Yeah!
Frost: Count me in!
Captain: The main thing is we’ve got to replenish this water supply — without that we are not going anywhere.
Lindsey: Maybe we’ll bump in a pina colada while we’re over there.

Cole: My time in the Boy Scouts did not leave me unprepared.
Karen: Frost!
Frost: Yeah?
Karen: Come here! I saw something!
Frost: What? What? Like what?
Karen: Right there in the water. It was . . .
Cole: Well, what did it look like?
Karen: I don’t know; it was big!
Frost: Like a whale.
Karen: No.
Cole: Maybe it was a manta ray.
Karen: No . . . Look, you know I’m gonna stay here.
Lindsey: Karen!
Karen: I’ll just wait.
Frost: No, no baby; it’s been a crazy night — you’ll be fine.
Karen: You don’t believe me?
Lindsey: Karen don’t you want to get off the boat?
Karen: Yeah but . . .
Frost: Wait wait wait. why don’t you stay here as well, both of you?
Lindsey: No. No I’m going with you guys: freakin Jaws couldn’t keep me from feeling skin between my toes.
Frost: All right fine oh I’m gonna stay here with her.
Karen: No no. You go I’ll be I’ll be okay.

Captain: Hey you can let her stay; but I’m gonna need every hand I can get. So all the shore is going to shore.
Karen: Okay take care of yourself.
Frost: I’ll be back in a little bit.

Captain: You see this? It’s a flare gun. It’s loaded. Close it. Cock the hammer. Put it above your head — and fire.
Karen: Okay.
Captain: We see the flare — we know you’re in trouble.
Karen: What about if you guys are in trouble?
Captain: Well, we’ll just hightail it back here as quickly as possible. ASAP.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Cole: I like it. No more boats; no more boats. You guys go on ahead, we’ll pick some flowers.

Captain: Remember where we came from: see that gore?
Cole: That’s your job.

Captain: Hey Stack.
Stack: Yeah.
Captain: Would you have a look around, so we know which way we’re going.
Stack: Alright, Capsey.

Cole: I see why you keep him around.
Captain: Stack grew up island hopping.
Cole: Well, that’s a good sign.
Captain: Wildlife means we’re near water.
