Jumping Ship

Synopsis: Michael has big plans to show his cousin Tommy a good time aboard a luxury yacht until he discovers that the yacht he's chartered is actually an old rusted fishing boat. But when modern-day pirates chase the fishing boat, the boys are forced to jump ship, leaving them stranded on a desert island with the boat's captain, Jake Hunter.

That's Great, Michael.

Good For You.

I Know It Sounds Strange

Coming From Me, Aunt Jules,

But It Really Feels Good

Growing Your Own Stuff.

It's Hard Work, Though.

Well, I Guess You Got

A Little Farmer In You

After All.

[Chuckles] So...Is

Tommy All Set To Go?

I'd Say. He's Been Packed

For 3 Days.

I've Gotta Admit, Michael,

I'm A Little Nervous.

Australia's Really Far Away.

I Know, But I Promise You,

I'm Gonna Take Good Care

Of Him, All Right?

Don't Worry.

Uh, Excuse Me,

Aunt Jules.

Hey, Uh...Missed

A Couple Of Weeds

Right There, Partner.

Ok? Thanks.

It's So Hard To Get

Good Help These Days.

So, Where Is Tommy,

Anyway?

[Horse Whinnies]

Oh, He's Riding Up

Right Now.

Hey, Tommy,

Michael's On The Phone!

I'll Talk To You

Later, Michael.

Have Fun,

And Be Careful.

We Will, All Right?

And Don't Worry, Aunt Jule.

I Promise You Tommy

Is In Very Good Hands.

All Right?

I Know.

Here He Is.

Hey, Michael.

Hey, Bud.

Are You Out, Uh...

Riding My Horse Again?

Yeah. He's Gotten

Really Fast.

He's Really Living

Up To His Name.

We're Going

For A Steak Sandwich!

Hey, Tommy,

Are You Ready

To Have Some Fun?

Couldn't Be More Ready.

Well, Guess What. I Was

On The, Uh, Internet,

And I've Decided

That I'm Gonna Charter

A Private Yacht

To Take Us Deep-Sea

Fishing For 2 Days

And Then

On To The Resort.

Just You And Me.

How Cool Is That, Huh?

Really?

Yeah. I Thought

You Might Like It.

I Can't Wait.

Me, Neither, Buddy.

Uh, Listen,

Um, I'll See You

At The Airport.

All Right?

All Right. Bye.

Ok. Bye.

How's The Water?

Oh, It's Great, Dad.

Want To Come In?

Wish I Could.

But I've...

Gotta Go To Work.

Nice Tan, Michael.

Oh, Thanks. Yeah,

I'm Trying To Get

A Good, Uh, You Know,

Base For...Australia.

Michael, My Accountant

Just Called.

This Trip With Tommy

That You're Taking

To Australia?

Seems To Have Come In

At $4,000 More

Than You Said It Would.

Oh, I Can Explain That.

Oh, Please Do.

Ok. See, Roxanne

Is Gonna Be In Hawaii.

Right? Which Is

Practically Right

Next Door To Australia.

So I Said, "Hey, Since

You're In The Neighborhood,

Come On Down And Join

Tommy And Me."

So You Picked Up The Tab?

[Chuckles]

Dad, I Invited Her.

Is This Gonna

Be A Problem?

Well, As A Matter Of Fact,

It Is A Problem.

Michael, You're

Spending Money

You Don't Have,

And You Don't Have

A Job To Pay It Back.

You Know, Michael,

In My Book,

Success Is When Preparation

Meets Opportunity.

And Frankly, Michael,

What You're Doing Here

Has Nothing To Do

With Either One.

Dad, Look, I--I--

Now, Don't "Dad" Me.

You're Supposed To Be

Looking For A Job,

Maybe Putting

Your Education To Work.

But, Dad, I'm Not Sure

I Want To Be An Attorney.

Well, Our Agreement Was

Whatever You Chose,

You'd Be Employed

By The End Of The Summer.

Well, I've Been Looking.

Well, I Don't Know Of

A Whole Lot Of Opportunities

You're Gonna Find

Sitting Here

In This Pool, Michael.

Now, You're Going

To Pay Me Back

For Roxanne.

So I Suggest

That When You Return

From Your Vacation,

You Find That Job

That We've Been Talking About,

Or You're Gonna

Come Work For Me.

Just Like Your Partner

In Your Firm?

No, Not As A Partner

In My Firm, Michael.

You'd Have To Go To Law School

And Pass The Bar Exam

To Do That.

You're Gonna Start

The Way I Started...

As A File Clerk.

It's Not A Punishment,

Michael.

It's A Job.

Who Knows?

You Might Like It.

I Might Even Treat You

To Lunch Once In A While.

Think About It.

Here.

Need Some Help?

No, That's Ok.

I Can Do It.

Here. This Is For You--
