- I'll take them shelves

So, what did you see out there

in your 15 months?

- Such as?

- An end to all this water

Askin' the wrong person

- The one they buried today?

- Uh-huh?

She found the only end there is

I've got a proposition

for you, Mariner

- I'm not staying

- We're not asking you to

All we want is your seed

We can look to our own

for impregnation,

but too much of that sort of thing

gets undesirable

When she's pregnant,

you go on your way

with all the supplies

you need

You don't have anything

You're dying

No man stays out that long

and turns down a woman

- He's hiding something

- Maybe he's a Smoker spy

[ Whistles ]

When the elders say so,

- I don't know

Helen, look Look at

the prodigal child's latest vision

[ Chuckling ]

- How soon before we can leave?

- I don't have any idea yet

where we can go

I haven't figured out

the tattoo on her back

I'm a stupid man

The answer's right there

It's just beyond me

Maybe he knows

Oh, yes, I see

They are webbed

One, two, three, four,

five, six, seven, eight, nine,

ten digits That's wonderful

They tell me, too,

that you have gills

Isotropic gills Are they merely
