where he heard the roar -

-of the greatest beast...

The rest of that log entry

was suppressed by Rome.

In 1749, a water-Iogged lifeboat

was found in the same area.

It was empty,

but drawn in blood on the port -

-was a likeness of a huge,

slouchy humanoid thing.

And this strange warning:

"From thy wedding with the creature

who touches heaven, lady, -

-God preserve thee."

I also heard of a note in a bottle

from a dying Japanese in 1944...

What the hell are you talking about?

Who is this joker?

-Beats me.

-He's wearing a crew jersey.

I'll pay any fair amount

for my... passage.

-You're a stowaway?

-Jack Prescott. From Princeton.

-Dept. Of Primate Paleonthology.

-You lying hippie!

You're from another oil company!

The meeting's over.

He's got one of our T-shirts.

This doesn't mean a thing. Gulf

or Exxon can fix a fake passport.

-Who the hell are you?

-I am Jack Prescott...

My interest in your island

has got nothing to do with oil.

You're not even a good liar. You

couldn't find out where we're going.

-You bought charts!

-Come on. Who'd you pay off?

They hadn't sold charts for this area

in years. A friend tipped me.

I did pick up

some charts in Surabaya.

Take this spy below till he's hungry

enough to stop spouting ape shit.

Let's go. Come on.

-There's something out there.

-Oh, come on!

-Honest to God, look!

-Quit horsing around.

Come back here!

There's something out there!

About 2 o'clock. Use your glasses.

Son of a bitch, it's a raft!

All stop.

She's alive!


I've had first-aid training, Captain.

Will you all clear out of here?

-You have to undress her, huh?

-It's usual.

In case of internal injury

or shock syndrome.

-Get outta here!

-Clear out.

Eye Magnate. Beverly Hills.
