Swept Away

I did not fly all the way

from New York City...

...to wherever the f*ck we are

to get on that.

How many vacations have you enjoyed?

You wanted to try something new.

Tell me, how new does that look?

It's got a fucking chimney, Anthony.

It's a funnel. Honey, we're here now.

Let's just try and enjoy it.

I only agreed to this

if it had a fully-equipped gym.

They do.

That I was assured of.

- Welcome aboard, professor.

- I'm not actually a professor.

That's not what I hear.

Thank you very much.

- I'm your captain. Call me captain.

- You're a real captain, captain?

Madam?

I'm not interested in shaking

Blackbeard's hook.

Would you show my wife

to her quarters, please?

Of course, professor.

- What's with the finger snapping?

- Don't get all Italian on me, Peppe.

I don't like finger snapping.

The clients expect finger snapping

from the captain.

Giuseppe will show you to your room.

This is your cabin, sir. Madam.

- What you can't fit, keep in my room.

- We'll make do. Thanks.

That should be all.

My name is Giuseppe. Peppe for short.

I am the fisherman,

but if you need anything, I'm your man.

Ask him about the gym.

- Would you show my wife the gym, please?

- Certainly.

What was that

screaming about?

- What happened?

- She's crazy.

- What was that screaming?

- Wait here.

I thought she would like me

bringing the gym to her.

I wasn't very happy. What kind of

a gym could you possibly carry?

- Then what?

- I showed her the gym.

- He showed me the gym.

- And?

And?

- Your gym. She started screaming.

- I was understanding.

Anthony!

So then...

...that little hairy black one

pulled out a rope...

...and told me I could jump over it.

- For jumping.

Jump, jump.

She said she was going

to hang you with it, captain.

Me?

This is a good idea.

A trip from Italy to Greece.

It's Greece to Italy, babe.

Have you seen the deserted islands

we can visit?

You cannot do that in the Caribbean.

What would you do on

a deserted island, Debi?

I'll think of something.

What?

What "what"?

What is it that

you're going to think of?

You lost me.

And here he is.

- Nice outfit, pal. Very native.

- Thanks.

- What have you come as? Popeye?

- There's no need for that, darling.

- I like this outfit. Very Errol Flynn.

- Very Errol Flynn.

Who's Errol Flynn?

I thought we agreed

to get dressed up for dinner.

You put us on a boat built for pirates,

can we not dress like one?

I changed my mind. I wanted

to be a little more comfortable.

Where does that leave me?

And our guests?

Where would we all be if we just did

things because we felt like it?

On vacation?

She's a piece of work, that woman.

- Why speak Greek? I look Greek?

- You look like an idiot.

- Tony's not had much holidays.

- Look after that fucking woman.

Watch your mouth.

Remember what you're getting paid.

It was you that asked me to help you.

I can live without money.

I was happy as I was.

Happy? Happy is nice.

But how much does happy pay?

Now you're talking.

It's not going to rain, madam.

Is that a joke?

- Come on in. It's clean as a whistle.

- Depends on who's been blowing it.

Don't bother coming in.

It's really wet. Where's Debi?

- Maybe she drowned.

- Did anyone ask if she could swim?

Salty!

Put a mask on and swim with the fishes.

You'll enjoy it.

Why?

Because it's nice.

When you have some time off,

I suggest you swim with the fishes.

Fish is the plural for fish.

Do something about Marina and Amber.

They're ripping Debi to shreds.

What can I do? You know what they're like.

Besides, she's not the sharpest...
