is heading for Natchez in the middle of a storm. The ship is riding high because of the lack of cargo, and Grey informs Joshua that Natchez is two miles ahead. The captain spots logs in the river ahead and calls down to Carney to order half speed. One of them hits the ship, stoving in the hull. Grey tells Joshua to go to full speed so they reach Natchez before they sink and then heads to the engine room...Read the full recap
Grey: How bad is it, Mr. Carney?
Carney: Starboard side is stove in! We're floodin' fast! It's seepin' up through the bottom!
Grey: I'll be right down. Resume full speed ahead.
Joshua: But she'll fall apart!
Grey: It's either Natchez or the bottom, take your pick... if we got one.
Chip: Is it all right to pray for money?
Grey: Well, I--I, I don't think anyone would mind.
Chip: Do you have to know how much to ask for?
Grey: No, no, just make it general.
Chip: Yeah, God'll know.
Grey: I got my principles!
Nick Logan: Well try carrying cargo with 'em.
Grey: My principles are going to carry just as much cargo as your flat crewmen...
Nick Logan: That isn't even good English!
Nanette Burns: We move to Creighton's Landing on Friday before the miners spend their money on foolish things - like necessities.
Nick Logan: Do you know what I've been thinking down there? About guys like you me? We haul cargo, we push our boats, our crew, ourselves 'til we're half dead. For what? You've worked years for the Enterprise but you take my advice: when you get her back, leave her as she is. Live on the river, don't die on it.
Chip: You're going to be a cheater, just like him.
Grey: You really believe that, Chip?
Chip: You're going with him.
Grey: Have you ever known me to cheat anybody before, ever? Have I ever lied to you, Chip?
Chip: I don't know. Mostly you just tell me to wash my ears.
Grey: Well, if you washed your ears good this morning, you'll hear what I have to say.
Joshua: All right, Chip, you stay here.
Chip: Ah, every time there's a here and a there, I stay here and everybody else goes there.
