Why dont you relax

and come get some sun with me?

- No!

Take a look, Chen.

- Mr Morgan, hes sleeping.

- Thats him!

- Dont you feel sorry for me?

- ln a way, yeah.

-You must get a lot of this.

- Quite a bit.

Youd think the fish smell

would keep them away.

- You wanna keep them away?

- No! l like girls.

- Not as much as the boat.

- l live on her. ld like to own her.

- Whats stopping you?

- Money.

That shouldnt be a problem.

- You must be kidding.

- No, l wouldnt do that.

l dont give to organised charity.

But theres a big charge

in doing it this way.

- lndividual cases.

- Mrs Morgan...

l dont accept charity.

l have to earn what l get.

You would, honey. You would.

- Ross.

- Hi.

When will you teach your daughters

to stow a sail?

Mr Morgan liked the boat.

Hell charter again.

Can l talk to you, please?

Whats the matter, Papa Stavros?

- Nothing.

- Somethings bugging you.

- The doctor says a bug is bugging me.

- lm sorry...

Today, he tells us we must move

to a dry climate, like Arizona.

- Arizona?

- Arizona.

Papa learn English

so they want him to move.

- What they speak there?

- Mama, this is not a joke.

- Dont worry, Ross. We wont move.

- But if youre sick...

Sick? A woman isnt as young as

she was, so they look for a reason.

- Then its not serious?

- Of course it is.

Dont listen. lf he says he must

sell the boats, also dont listen.

Come to our wedding anniversary

on Wednesday night

and forget about all this.

- All right, Mama, thank you.

- Chen. You come, too.

Thank you, Mama.

Come on, Papa. You have made

enough trouble already.


The West Wind, too?


Hey, Sam.

- Hi, Ross.

- How are you?

Shell be off soon. Wait at the bar.

- Long time no see.

- Not so long.

To what disaster do l owe this visit?

- You know?

- No.

Only, l know when old head on

the shoulder Robin comes on.

l come when theres nothing wrong.

You come when you want to sing

a little or cry on my shoulder.

- Which is it tonight?

- l dont feel much like singing.

Stavros is moving to Arizona, selling

the fishing boats and the West Wind.

Good. lts the only way

to get it out of your system.

lts not that easy. Losing a home

and a job all in one day.

lt might be worth it...

if you lose the dream, too.

Look, my father and l

built the boat together.

l wanted to own it.

Thats not a dream.

Your father is gone

and so is that part of your life.

The worst thing for you was

Papa letting you live on that boat.

- l can count on that speech.

- Count on me.

- Here we go again!

- Should l pretend l dont care?

Dont make things

tougher than they are!

Ready for your number, Robin?

Let Sir Galahad do it, OK?
