Jerry has...

excuse the expression... Clam fritters!

I'm not eating them alone! Come on.

Lorenzo.

Here, kitty.

Yeah! There you go!

They got to be the worst

clam fritters I ever ate.

Is that so?

Even Lorenzo thinks so.

Ain't no worse than that goose

you cooked last week.

Even my stomach

still gets upset just thinking about it.

Well, I promised John Bartlett.

I'd take his cranberry barrels

up to him, so...

...you two can match coins

to see who's going to wash the dishes.

I won't do them.

Blessed if I'd do the darn things

if Teddy Roosevelt himself asked me to.

Where's my hat?

I can't find anything in this mess.

I suppose you fellers think

I'm going to do them all the time.

Well, if you think that,

you're mistook. I ain't!

Aw, this... This just don't work.

It don't work.

What don't work?

This plan of ours.

I thought not going to sea,

settling down with you sailors...

...living on the cheap

was going to be the ticket.

It was going to be fine. But it ain't.

I mean, I don't mind

doing my share of the work.

You know, swabbing the deck, and...

But, I mean, that's not

the way it worked out.

I'm doing the work!

I'm just so sick of this!

I'm sick of living in a pigpen!

Well, now, I'll tell you what.

This craft...

...needs a steward.

A steward.

Or a woman!

A woman?

Yeah.

I'm not kidding. A woman.

We could use a housekeeper.

Nobody's talking about a housekeeper.

I'm talking about a woman.

This house needs a woman!

It's simple.

One of us has to get married.

- Married?

- Married.

And take the other two

as boarders into his house.

Look, when a shipwrecked crew is starving...

...one of them has to be sacrificed

for the good of the rest.

One of us has to get married

for the good of the other two.

Well, that's pretty good, Perez.

So...

...you going to be the first offering?

If it's my luck, yes.

But I had this idea...

...maybe we'd match for it

like we do for the dishes.

Well, I don't know.

I'll tell you what.

Why don't you just marry...

...Melissy Busteed.

She's awful sweet on you.

No, you don't. She is the town gossip.

She's already buried two husbands...

...and I ain't looking to be the third.

Where you going to find this wife?

Well, sir, I'm about to show you.

The Nuptial Chime...

...a journal of matrimony.

Chock-full of advertisements...

...from women who wants husbands.

Well, seems to be a strong running...

...for "vivacious brunettes,"...

...and over here, "blondes of tender...

...and romantic dispositions. "

So, Mr. Perez...

...which one of these types

are you suffering for?

Why don't you hush up?

You really think that

I would write anyone in there?

What we have to do...

...is make our own advertisement.

Say exactly what kind of woman we want...

...and then sit back

and wait for the answers.

Simple.

What do you think about this, Jerry?

Well, seems like a good idea.

We got to do something...

...and that's the only sensible thing.

So you have to do it.

Yes, you do.

We agreed to stick together.

Two-to-one's a vote.

So you got to do it.

We'll match for it.

Come on, Zeb.

Ain't going to mutiny, are you?

All right.

I'll stick with the ship.

Heads.

Heads.

Tails.

Well, there it is.

Well...

...don't feel bad...

Jerry.

There it is.

It's Providence.

Me and Perez are bachelors.

We'd just be green hand.

You're an able seaman.

You already know...

...what it is to manage a wife.

Dang it to hell.

I know what it is...

...to be managed by a wife.

Hey! Here's Captain Zeb.

Well, Cap'n, how's she heading?

Well, I'd say pretty much
