You all right, Nadine?

It's been a couple months now.

Everything will be all right.

You know, if I had a woman to

drive the boat over to Miami,

they'd be content to get a

service at the end of the month.

That's a long way.

Yeah, well I'll take

Brooks with me.


I go and top

the motor up for tomorrow.
