[[[Richard puts an arm around Emmeline as they drift. The next morning, things from the ship are drifting in the ocean, including the figurehead, part of a Boston newspaper, a barrel, a basket, and a trunk. The trunk bumps into the dinghy, waking up the cook, who ties it to the boat, opens it, and begins to rummage for food.]]]

THE COOK: Whatís this?

[[[Richard wakes up, followed shortly by Emmeline. The cook puts a box on the seat next to him. Emmeline wakes up and opens it.]]]
