John: No thanks. I’m not worried about getting sea sick, I’m worried about being swallowed by a whale.
Shelley: Ah ha! That’s why they gave us these wrist bands, so they can identify our remains when they open up Moby Dick.
John: Great. Thanks for saying that. Exactly what I want to hear while we’re in the birthing waters of the grey whales, which, by the way, are over three times the size of this boat.
Shelley: I have something to tell you that will help you relax.
Shelley: After listening to “Ted Talks” I’ve decided that my New Year’s resolution is,
“To be even more compassionate, more giving, to look out for others before I look out for myself.”
John: Does that mean you’ll risk your life to save me from being eaten by a whale?
John: I do feel better. Come here.
John and Shelley: Mwahhhhhh!!
Boatman: Bella cola!
Shelley: But not before I take the perfect picture.
