It is always easier describing

the end of a nightmare.

The doorway in

is more difficult to find.

I guess in my particular case...

it began with a storm.

Guys, guys, you gotta

check this out!

It's fogged-in everywhere,

you can't see 10 feet past your nose.

It's so surreal.

What's the matter?

It's pea soup out there.

Can't even see the anchor

at the end of the bow.

Maybe we ought to

call this in, captain?

Yeah, go ahead

and give the position.

I have to find a

way to steer around this thing.

You guys need

a little fresh air, we knew there was going

to be some weather, right?

Fresh air?

Yes, fresh air,

it's invigorating

Frost, this is worse

than the bungee jumping.

What do you mean

'than the bungee jumping,'

you loved that !

- I cracked 2 ribs !

- But you bounced back, right?

He's been looking like this for 2 weeks,

I don't think I can handle it !

I get no response.

Not get anything at 16.

- Hey, Stack?

- What?

Check it out!

OK, OK, wait,

you know what you need?

You need a little group photo.

Do not you dare ask us

to say 'cheese.'

You see?

That is the sense of humor that

I've been looking for.

OK, on '3' now,



- What is it?

-2... 3.


Karen, sweetheart...honey are you OK?

-Ross ?

Oh, yeah, but I've

got a killer headache.

What the hell happened?


Well, it looks like

we made it through the storm.

- Storm?

- Where are we?

Captain... what's our position?

How far away

are we San Juan?

Look, the electrical storm

knocked-out my engine, I have

no electricity and no radar.

I have nothing;

the barometer is spinning around

like a top.

- I don't know what's going on.

- Thanks.

Hey, Cap'n!

- Yup?

- We're pretty much dead in the water.

Well, might as well check engine,

it's probably something electrical.

The reservoir cracked.

Most of our fresh water

drained-out before I could get

down there to stop it.


is all screwed-up too.


can we try to keep everything

positive down there?


Yes, sir.


Thank You God!

What island is it?

You know what?

There shouldn't be any land

around here for miles.

Well, maybe the

storm blew us off course.

Are you sure you don't know

our position?

It's hard to tell

with the instruments out.

The instruments are out?

He said it's difficult...

it's not impossible.

Stack's working on

getting the engine started.

- Right, Stack?

- Yes, sir.

-Go below.

Anyway, it looks

like the tide is moving us

toward that island.

Finally some good news.

Well, the anchor's set.

I think she'll hold.

So, what do you say,

we take the Zodiac and get some

land under our feet?


Yeah, I'm in!

The main thing

is we gotta replenish

this water supply.

Without that,

we are not going anywhere.

Maybe, we'll bump into a

pia colada while we're over there.

- [ LAUGHS ]

My time in the Boy Scouts

did not leave me unprepared.



- Yeah?

- Come here, I -I saw something.



- Like what?

- Right there in the was...

-Well, what did it look like?

- I-I don't know, it was...big!

- Like a whale?

- No.

- Maybe it was a Manta ray.

- No.

Well, look, you know,

I'm-I'm gonna stay here.


- What?

- I'm just--

Wait, no, no, baby,

It's been a crazy night,

you'll be fine.

- You don't believe me.

- Karen, don't you

want to get off the boat?

- Yeah, but...

- Wait, wait, wait,

why don't you stay here as well?

...Both of you.

No, no, I'm going with you guys.

Frikkin' 'Jaws'

couldn't keep me from feeling sand
