Capt. Billy Tyne (voiceover): The fog's just lifting. Throw off your bow line; throw off your stern. You head out to South channel, past Rocky Neck, Ten Pound Island. Past Niles Pond where I skated as a kid. Blow your air-horn and throw a wave to the lighthouse keeper's kid on Thatcher Island. Then the birds show up: black backs, herring gulls, big dumb ducks. The sun hits ya - head North. Open up to 12 - steamin' now. The guys are busy; you're in charge. Ya know what? You're a goddamn swordboat captain. Is there any thing better in the world?
Dale 'Murph' Murphy: So, I guess you're the big hero, huh? David 'Sully' Sullivan: You would have done the same for me. Isn't that what I'm supposed to say? Dale 'Murph' Murphy: You can say what you want, but... I'm sure glad you know how to swim. David 'Sully' Sullivan: Well, that's real big of you, Murph. Dale 'Murph' Murphy: It's all I can manage right now. I'll work on it. All right?
