[Steam Whistle]

Obi, we anchor here.

We stay here

tonight, Nardo.

We go to the

Black Lagoon in the morning.

I fix you some supper now.

What are we having tonight?

Oh, big surprise. What we

didn't finish last night.

What I'd give for

a tall, cold beer.

Or a short,

warm blonde.

The Gill Man;

prehistoric monster.

Maybe there's no such thing.

You find him, mister.

I'll catch him.

It doesn't look good for

a conservative institution

like Ocean Harbor...

to circus a yarn and

then not to deliver.

If you're smart,

you won't worry about it.

If there is a Gill Man,

we'll catch him.

If it's a phony,

well, the boss

is out his dough.



Hey, Lucas.

Yes, Mr. Johnson?


Ah, it's a crocodile.

Huh, you think

maybe that is it?

Oh no, the thing you are looking

for can break that in two.

You know, sometimes I think

all North Americanos are crazy.

If he is dead,

you waste your money.

If he's alive, maybe you

be sorry you find him.

Yeah? There isn't a

fish alive I can't handle.

Who says

he's a fish?

What a character.

This sweatbox.

Doesn't it ever cool off here?

Never. You want to go back?

At your service.

Not till we get the...

the whatever it is.

Then we'll go back.

He won't rest easy till

he's got it in the tank

back at Ocean Harbor.

What for do you

want to do this?

So people can come and

stare at the man-fish?

To please some

crazy scientists?

For this you're going

to risk your lives?

Who said anything

about risking lives?

It's a job.

A technical job.


Maybe then you

got a book...

that going to tell you

how to do this thing?

Now look, we're not

paying you to make jokes.

No joke.

Tomorrow we gonna

be in the lagoon.

You will go down

in the water.

Then is no longer

time for talking,

so maybe is better

we talk now, huh?

Okay, go ahead.

Last year I came to this place

with a party of scientists.

Also brave and highly

technical people.

In the end,

five persons were dead.

The Gill Man,

still there.

Were they equipped

for the capture?


Well, we are.

So, I like to

ask you something.

I'm not very

educated person.

This Gill Man,

this thing I have

seen with my eyes,

it... it doesn't

belong in our world.

It should've died out

long before man was born.

Still, it exists. Why?

Well, I'll try to

explain it to you.

Sometimes a species

gets isolated in time.

If the conditions are right,

it reproduces itself

without change,

skipping a chapter

of evolution.

Way back, there must

have been some major link...

between marine and

terrestrial life.

It's just possible

that this is it.

Well, that's all

there is to it.


Now I tell you

what I believe.

This beast exists because

it is stronger than...

than the thing that

you call evolution.

In it is some force

of life. A demon...

driving it through

millions of centuries.

It does not

surrender so easily...

to weaklings

like you and me.

This is the thing

that you hunt for.

Think on it.

Good night,



And that, kiddies, is our

fairy story for tonight.

Joe, maybe he's right.

Back in Florida...

You don't suppose

that they expect us...

to lose our lives

over this thing?

Maybe we got no business

to be here at all.

Want to play

some cards?


No, I think I'll

try to get some sleep.

You better do the same.

Oh, I'll sleep fine.

No imagination.

[Lucas] Drop anchor.


Yes, Captain.


Nardo, bring the net.

Bring the net down.


Good. The Americano

does the rest.

You get that

net secure, Joe,

and we got the

entrance sealed off.
