in contact with when you drown.

Oh, for Christ's sake, have some faith.

You've never been to sea in your whole, damn,

stupid, landlocked life. You can barely swim.

We decided to take a break to see

if this is what we really want.

Not that kind of break.

That guy's gonna have you

cooking dawn till dusk.

That is, when you're not throwing

up. You get seasick in a kayak.

Look, I'm sorry I can't be on call

for you, but I really need to do this.

Not your last will and testament.

Just a name and phone number in the States.

Don't forget that. You'll need it.

[RICK] Knows how to pick her moments,

- See ya, Dad!

- Bye, Dad!

- See ya.

- Bye. Bye, baby! Bye.

Be nice to your mum! Be good!

Oh, hey, don't be like that!

Us girls, we'll look after each other.

Where's your mate?

[KAREN] Is she all right?

Oh, come on, cheer up. They'll be fine.

Just think of all the fun you'll have when

you get him back, he'll be hot to trot!

No, it's... it's not

that... we're breaking up.


Hey, Jim, give Phil a

hand with the fenders.

JOHN (V.O.):
I'd waited a

long time for this adventure.

Unfortunately, I wasn't sharing

the first leg of the voyage...
