Scene: At the dock before the boat is in the water
Karin: It seems kind of windy today. Do you think it's safe to sail?Scene: 15 minutes after leaving the dock
[wind whooshes through trees]
Karin: [louder] I said it's really windy today. Is it safe?
John: [without hesitation] Oh yeah, we're fine.
Karin: Because I know all about small craft wind advisories. I didn't check if one was issued before we left. Are you sure we're okay?
John: We'll be fine. And if it gets bad, we'll just take down one of the sails.
John: It's getting kind of rough. Let's take down one of the sails.Scene: Boat is racing through the water. Water is splashing into the boat. Luis yelps every time he gets wet. Crew has entered stress behavior mode.
[sail comes down. boat becomes more turbulent than before]
John: Hmmm. Well that didn't work.
Rachel: It's time for chocolate.Scene: Just after another terrifyingly dangerous moment.
[each person on the boat is devouring chocolate with the exception of Karin. Since stress tends to generate opposite reactions, Karin opts instead for sliced apples]
John: [assuring smile] That wasn't so bad. See? We made it.
[Confidently then grabs bottle of coke zero and intently focuses on unscrewing the cap. Meanwhile, a massive gust of wind blows through]
Karin: [first time talking in a long while] John? Why are we going in a circle?
[As the side of the boat with Karin and Rachel on it is now water level, water begins gushing in. John, however, has managed to drink his soda]
Luis: [shouting] JOHN......what are you DOING?!?!?!?!
John: [fully composed] We're going to need all bailers on deck.
[At this point, we discover one of the bailer containers is missing]
Rachel: [hastily emptying water out of the boat. then......] Uh. [big pause] Whoops.
[Rachel has managed to lose the second and last bailing container in the water]
John: We'll be fine.
