This is stupid.

We shouldn't have stayed here.

That's okay.

He'll be fine.


Find it yet?


-Find it?


...but I found this!

Now I made a call to some private

companies and there's one of 'em...

...says they are willin' to send

a crane that's big enough...

...to lift most of the landed boats

and get 'em back into the water...

...or into dry dock for repairs.

And if the roads dry out...

...they could be in here in a week.

But they are gonna want $2700

per boat and that is cash up front.

Now, we're all in this together

and we're gonna get through...

...this together.

Fellas? Hey!

I'm doin' my job

as best as I can here.

I'm not the enemy here!

How's your boat, Bill?


How fast she go down?

And you were in it?


Guess it wasn't your time to go.

2700 dollars, Harvey?

That's what they estimate.

May be a little more.

But you got insurance, right?

Look, Bill I'd like to help you.

But if I lend the money to you I'd

have to lend it to every fisher...

...on the docks.

And I got my own damages

and repairs to see to.

I got almost all of it.

Maybe I could help

you repair the pier and...

...pay you back for some of it

that way?

I'm sorry, Bill.

You'll figure somethin' out.

Take care of that hand.

-Come over here.

-Excuse me, sir.

Hi, what do you need?

This is the fourth form

I've been given to fill out.

I'm trying to apply for relief aid?

Are you displaced?

What does that mean?

Your home, what happened

to your home?

The roof blew off and

the back wall fell over.

Was anyone hurt?

-My brother was hurt.

-I'm sorry.

I'm not sure what

I'm supposed to ask you for?

Well, you got lucky,

you came to the right person.

I'm Roberto Cruz, by the way.

What's your name?

-I'm Renee Kyte.

-Renee Kyte. Mucho gusto, Renee.

-Mucho gusto.

-You speak Spanish, very good.

Right listen, you got the wrong

forms, that's the main thing.

This is the one you need.

So what you do is just fill out

one through seven...

...initial after each one

and sign at the bottom.

-Just do the best you can. Alright?


Oh, listen you need some I.D.

Like a government I.D, picture I.D?

-You have anything like that?

-No, I don't have any of that.

-That's all gone.

-Well we'll worry about that later.

-Thank you.

-Look for me, Roberto.


Welcome to Hatchee

Florida Gateway to the Everglades

S'really hot.


-I got sweat in my...

It stings...

I gotta stop for a minute.

Way to go!

I said I had to stop!

Oh great.

Come on guys.

Too late. We already got it.

-We weren't going for that anyway.


-Is that the best thing you got?

-We got way better stuff than you!

-Oh yeah?




-Shut up one-eye!

You shut up, asshole!

What'd you call me?

I think he called you an "asshole".

Shut up.

Did you?

Come on, Homer.

Yeah, you better run away!

-One eye!

-Yeah, keep on goin', one-eye!

One Eye, and his

little girlfriend Nappy!

Come on.

Man, that was close.

I hate those guys.

I'm not a one-eye.

I didn't say nothin'.

Hey. Bill.

Y'all ought not to be out here

in all this. It's dangerous.

Homer's Daddy's missin'.

-That so?

-His plane never come back.

-You don't know that!

-They locked the base down.

Won't let no one in.

-What happened to your eye?

-Lost it.

Ya lost it?

It got knocked out in the storm.

We're looking for it,

so the doctor can put it back in.


Hey, Renee.

Found these two downtown.

Get out of that truck

and get inside.

Who made you boss?

You too, Abby.

-We'll keep lookin' tomorrow.
