A miracle that talks to himself, hey, Baby?

- I thought you were alone.

- I'm never alone. I was talking to Baby.

But don't let that frighten you.

I'm so sane it hurts.


Sure. She's up there, or there.

She's always up there.

She was the one trick I had up my sleeve,

when I was a guest of the Commies...

to keep me from beating my head

against the wall.

- You might introduce me.

- Baby, meet Cathy.

You have sailed this coast, Capt. Wilder?

What's this all about?

We require 300 miles of experience.

The villagers put up the bribe money

for your escape.

I think we're entitled to find out

what kind of skipper you are.

I've knocked around these waters

from Port Arthur to Singapore...

in every kind of a ship,

under half a dozen flags.

- Does that answer your question?

- Quite so.

Could the illustrious captain

take a ship to Hong Kong without maps?

I never tried it without maps...

but this coast is littered with wrecks

that have tried it with them.

Still, you have navigated

these dangers many times.

It could be done.

Capt. Wilder,

you may reject our unworthy plan...

and travel your own way to freedom.

In that event, we only request

sealed lips beyond these village walls.

One unguarded word

and our 180 lives would be forfeited.

Our people have chosen

to leave Red China.

Plus goats, ducks, pigs,

and a number of trained canaries.

We can no longer live in honor...

under the hawks and dogs

who now sit in Peiping.

For more than a year,

we have planned every detail.

It was one of God's footsteps

that brought you to Amoy.

Now we are ready.

We ask you to guide us

through Formosa Strait to freedom.

- 300 miles down Blood Alley?

- Quite so.

You have no charts.

What do you expect to use for a ship?

There is but one in the harbor
