00:
01:06,233 -- 00:01:07,650

Hey, Don. lt's Daniel.

2

00:
01:07,735 -- 00:01:10,319

Listen, don't put the boiler in

until l get back.

3

00:
01:10,404 -- 00:01:12,113

The framing inspection isn't

for a couple of weeks,

4

00:
01:12,197 -- 00:01:13,698

so we've got plenty of time.

5

00:
01:13,782 -- 00:01:15,950

And l'll check in with you guys

in a couple of days, okay?

6

00:
01:16,034 -- 00:01:17,577

Take care. Bye.

7

00:
01:29,798 -- 00:01:32,216

First thing l would do

is try to find another producer.

8

00:
01:32,301 -- 00:01:36,387

There's got to be somebody else in town

who can help us out, just for the pre-game.

9

00:
01:37,723 -- 00:01:39,807

Hold on just a second, Cal.

10

00:
01:40,559 -- 00:01:42,143

Hey, just one second.

11

00:
01:46,106 -- 00:01:47,482

l got to go.

12

00:
01:48,776 -- 00:01:51,986

Call me back if you need me.

Good luck! Okay, bye.

13

00:
01:52,988 -- 00:01:54,197

Hey, l'm so sorry.

14

00:
01:54,323 -- 00:01:55,364

What's up?

15

00:
01:55,657 -- 00:01:58,075

Hey, l got stuck on the phone with Cal.

16

00:
01:58,160 -- 00:02:01,329

Yeah, the crew hasn't even made it

to the arena yet.

17

00:
02:02,498 -- 00:02:04,081

lt's not good.

18

00:
02:08,337 -- 00:02:10,838

l don't know what they're gonna do.

19

00:
02:12,758 -- 00:02:15,676

-Are all the lights out?

-No, they're all on.

20

00:
02:17,971 -- 00:02:19,472

Just checking.

21

00:
02:22,017 -- 00:02:24,268

Are you sure

you want to lug that thing with you?

22

00:
02:24,353 -- 00:02:28,314

-l don't even think we can get online there.

-No, we can. l checked.

23

00:
02:36,740 -- 00:02:37,990

All set?

24

00:
02:39,076 -- 00:02:41,285

Let's just try to remember...

25

00:
02:43,872 -- 00:02:45,289

lt's Cal.

26

00:
02:45,374 -- 00:02:47,124

Hey, just a second.

27

00:
02:49,378 -- 00:02:51,254

This is supposed to be a vacation.

28

00:
02:51,338 -- 00:02:53,673

l know. And, boy, do we need one.

29

00:
02:55,133 -- 00:02:56,676

Hey, what's up?

30

00:
02:58,595 -- 00:03:00,471

Well, that could work.

31

00:
04:03,035 -- 00:04:05,286

-l'm gonna get wet.

-All right.

32

00:
04:39,237 -- 00:04:40,863

-Hey.

-Hey.

33

00:
04:40,948 -- 00:04:44,951

We're all set for the morning.

We have to be at the dock at 8:30.

34

00:
04:49,331 -- 00:04:51,749

-Did you have a nice shower?

-Yes.

35

00:
04:53,043 -- 00:04:54,210

Great.

36

00:
04:54,836 -- 00:04:57,296

l'm so glad l made you bring this.

37

00:
04:58,632 -- 00:05:01,550

Scattered thundershowers

tomorrow night, late.

38

00:
05:02,594 -- 00:05:04,261

Looks like it's gonna be crowded

on the boat tomorrow.

39

00:
05:04,346 -- 00:05:06,305

l hope it's not a cattle boat.

40

00:
05:06,390 -- 00:05:09,475

We'll just do our own thing. Did you ask?

41

00:
05:09,559 -- 00:05:13,020

No, but they seem pretty relaxed.

Why is it so hot in here?

42

00:
05:13,605 -- 00:05:15,606

Air conditioner is busted.

43

00:
05:15,691 -- 00:05:17,191

That figures.

44

00:
05:17,442 -- 00:05:20,361

-We didn't come for the room.

-That's for sure.

45

00:
05:20,445 -- 00:05:22,613

Considering how much time we had

to put this whole thing together,

46

00:
05:22,698 -- 00:05:24,699

l'm amazed we got anything.

47

00:
05:24,783 -- 00:05:26,534

l'm not complaining.

48

00:
05:26,868 -- 00:05:28,369

Yes, you are.

49

00:
05:30,372 -- 00:05:32,790

All right, l'm done.

Want to check your e-mail?

50

00:
05:32,874 -- 00:05:36,669

No. l'm on vacation, remember?

51

00:
05:39,798 -- 00:05:40,965

Right.

52

00:
05:41,842 -- 00:05:43,009

All right, then.

53

00:
07:43,839 -- 00:07:45,506

That tasted good.

54

00:
08:09,114 -- 00:08:10,531

Nice face!

55

00:
08:11,950 -- 00:08:14,994

-You, too.

-Yeah, it's different. l'm a girl.

56

00:
08:15,078 -- 00:08:16,745

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

57

00:
08:21,710 -- 00:08:23,252

So how are you?

58

00:
08:24,212 -- 00:08:25,296

Fine.

59

00:
08:27,340 -- 00:08:30,092

A little stressed still, l guess.

60

00:
08:31,469 -- 00:08:33,095

ls this about work?

61

00:
08:33,638 -- 00:08:35,931

Yeah, work, life.

62

00:
08:38,727 -- 00:08:41,812

Maybe l can get you

to think of something else.

63

00:
08:53,658 -- 00:08:54,909

You okay?

64

00:
08:58,288 -- 00:09:00,414

l might not be in the mood.

65

00:
09:02,959 -- 00:09:05,586

Seemed like you might be a second ago.

66

00:
09:06,755 -- 00:09:08,964

Could go either way, l guess.

67

00:
09:10,717 -- 00:09:13,260

Maybe l can give you a little nudge.

68

00:
09:24,522 -- 00:09:26,565

Yeah, l'm not in the mood.

69

00:
09:27,067 -- 00:09:30,527

That wasn't the direction

l was trying to nudge you in.

70

00:
09:31,029 -- 00:09:32,196

Sorry.

71

00:
09:34,115 -- 00:09:35,658

l'm just tired.

72

00:
09:38,787 -- 00:09:40,621

lt's been a long day.

73

00:
09:44,292 -- 00:09:45,709

We can talk.

74

00:
09:45,794 -- 00:09:47,461

No, you're right.

75

00:
09:47,545 -- 00:09:49,672

We should get some sleep.

76

00:
09:49,756 -- 00:09:51,090

l'm wiped.

77

00:
09:51,800 -- 00:09:53,175

Very funny.

78

00:
12:08,228 -- 00:12:10,562

All right, ladies and gentlemen.

79

00:
12:11,439 -- 00:12:14,608

Welcome aboard

the world-famous ReefExpIorer.

80

00:
12:15,276 -- 00:12:16,819

My name is Davis.

81

00:
12:16,903 -- 00:12:19,196

l'm going to be one of the guides

onboard the vessel today.

82

00:
12:19,280 -- 00:12:23,534

Also, driving the boat

we have Linda and Junior.

83

00:
12:23,618 -- 00:12:26,203

Junior's gonna be the next guide

onboard our vessel.

84

00:
12:26,287 -- 00:12:29,248

We are going to be heading out

to a dive site called Magic Kingdom.

85

00:
12:29,332 -- 00:12:32,042

Now, things you want to look for

down there on this dive,

86

00:
12:32,127 -- 00:12:35,295

spotted eels, spotted morays,

we look for stingrays in the sand.

87

00:
12:35,380 -- 00:12:39,550

There's angelfish, parrotfish,

trumpetfish, dark beauties.

88

00:
12:39,634 -- 00:12:42,636

ls there any big fish

like sharks or anything?

89

00:
12:43,596 -- 00:12:45,139

Yeah, we're going out in the open ocean,

90

00:
12:45,223 -- 00:12:48,684

so chances are

you probably might see a shark or three.

91

00:
12:49,310 -- 00:12:51,770

But, you know, like l tell everybody,

if you see a shark

92

00:
12:51,855 -- 00:12:55,023

and you don't want to see it,

close your eyes. No problem.

93

00:
12:56,443 -- 00:12:59,278

Sharks over here are not very aggressive

towards human beings,

94

00:
12:59,362 -- 00:13:01,697

so therefore you don't have to really worry

about sharks.

95

00:
13:01,781 -- 00:13:03,490

-Okay.

-Okay?

96

00:
13:03,575 -- 00:13:05,492

All right, other than that, guys,

enjoy the ride out.

97

00:
14:23,154 -- 00:14:25,739

Okay, guys, if l can just have your attention

for just a few minutes.

98

00:
14:25,823 -- 00:14:27,991

We are going to be entering the water

in a minute.

99

00:
14:28,076 -- 00:14:30,327

Once we assist everybody into their gear,

what we want you to do

100

00:
14:30,411 -- 00:14:33,705
