I wouldn't do that if I were you!

Wouldn't you? Thanks for the advice but how

do I know she ain't gonna jump?

She's alright. She's not gonna do anything.

She's just gonna stand their. She's gonna

walk up and down..

then she's gonna lean against

that bollard..

and just stand there and look out to sea.

- She needs a pass to be out there!

- Brother, she'll have a pass.

She could have a pass to the White House

if she wanted it!

You start pushing around, you're going

to get yourself into trouble.

- She's a somebody.

- Speaking of passes, where's yours?

Oh.. you're new here aren't you!

Ships master, huh?

I came ashore on a dinghy.

Tied up down there at the end of the pier.

There, you see.

- Told you she was alright.

- What's she gonna do now?

Just look. She's watching for a ship

to come in.

- Only it's sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic.

- What ship is that?

- Used to be called the "Fortuna".

- Oh yeah, that gambling ship..

- Used to be sitting here at this dock.

- That's right.

- You know I was on pier 27..

- Yeah, I know, I know.

It was owned by a boss gambler called

Joe the Greek.

- Ever hear of him?

- Oh sure I did, in the newspapers.

- You know him?

- Yep.

I was master of the Fortuna.

Say tell me, was he really a Greek?

Nobody ever knew what he was, except

tough.

And brother you gotta understand he wasn't

just ordinary tough, he was double tough!

And too smart for his own good.

- Crossed you up, huh?

- Oh no.

Crossed himself up.

How?

That's how.

Right here on this pier was the last

time she ever saw him.

When was that?

Back a ways when we had the Fortuna

tied up here.

We weren't operating then.

We were broke and full of trouble.

One day Joe comes in with his face full

of fine and dandy and..

his heart full of ice water.

We had been driven off the west coast

by the law..

and put in here to raise a bank roll so

we could operate in Havana.

Joe was kind of up against it.

There was a Greek sailor on board.. guy

named Joe Bascopolous..

How's Bascopolous?

Looks like he's gonna join

Barnum and Bailey, Joe.

What did the Doc say?

Well according to the Doc, he's

already gone

Said he wouldn't last over an hour

two hours ago.

All gone inside.

- How'd it go uptown today?

- Swell thanks, Swede.

I got the plaster taken off the boat.

We can sail anytime.

Good! You know those mugs of yours

have been getting kinda restless.

- Let me know when he goes.

- Right.

Hey Blubber. Fix this thing!

- Something wrong boss?

- It paid!

- There ain't no customers Joe.

- There's gonna be customers.

- Fix it!

- Ok.

Hello boys. Well I got it.

Cost me ten grand but it was worth it.

Put it in the safe, Zepp.

Boys we're sailing for Havana as soon

as Bascopolous kicks off.

Forget it Joe. This ship ain't going

no where.

- Who says so?

- Your uncle Sam.

- What is this a rib?

- Take a gander at those kites.

J. Bascopolous, G. Zepp,

J. Adams...

1-A! They can't do this to me, I'm

a civilian.

It's ok chief. Don't worry.

I got it all fixed Joe. We can hop a plane

to Mexico City in two hours.

- What?

- And then catch a plane to Rio

You can work South America until this

soldier business blows over.

- Take it easy Crunk.

- There's a lot of guys with big dough, Joe

Yeah well relax. Thanks Crunk.

J. Bascopolous. What did he get?

4-F! What's that?

It means they don't want him. He's

physically unfit.

The lucky stiff.

He's physically unfit alright.

Or is he.

Alright boys. Get lost!

One of us is out of the army, Joe.

- Who declared you in?

- Well we're partners, ain't we?
