As the Providence continues across the waves, Cook watches as Rina and Nala struggle with one of the sails. When he offers advice, Nala points out that he’s not the captain. When Cook notices that Anwar is watching, he tells the doctor to go to work as well, telling them to cooperate. Sinbad finally takes pity on them and helps them get the sail up. When they improperly tie it off, Cook storms up, yanks the knot loose, and warns them that their life could depend on tying the sail off. Gunnar comes over and lifts the spar for them, and Cook tells them to start again. ..

Episode Quotes
Anwar: Look, this is an adventure. Like in a book, don’t you think?
Rina: We have nothing in common.
Cook: We all survived the storm.
Gunnar: She is right. We all travel different paths.
Sinbad: Look. What happened to your sense of adventure, hmm? That, my friends, is freedom!
Gunnar: Adventure is best left in books.

Sinbad: I am Sinbad!
Razia: Should I have heard of you?
Sinbad: Ha! Whether you have or not, you will never forget me!
Razia: I’ll take him. He has a sense of humor... and promises to keep!

Razia: You wanted me to choose you. Why?
Sinbad: You’re a very attractive woman. Little heavy on the war paint, maybe.

Sinbad: I’m a leader as well.
Razia: And yet... you left your friends.
Sinbad: No, not friends. Crew.
Razia: Oh.
Sinbad: Misfortune brought us together.
Razia: Misfortune binds people together. A leader knows this. A leader would risk their own life to save their people. Not to serve them in their hour of need for, oh, what was it?
Sinbad: A spark.
Razia: Yes, spark.

Razia: Ooh. Murder me in my bed with a blunt fork. By the time you’d have broken my skin, I would have perforated your gut with this.
Sinbad: You’re playing with me.
Razia: I like you.
Sinbad: And that’s what? Flirting?
Razia: I don’t get out much.
