RICHARD: Paddy, wake up, itís us.
EMMELINE: Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
[[[They turn him over by the wrist. His face is blank, covered in sand. His eyes are partway open and dry, and his lower jaw is slack. A crab crawls out of his mouth. He is dead. Emmeline faints. Richard catches her, puts her in the boat, and rows back.]]]
[[[Later that night, they sit in the hut, lit only by a small lamp. Richard puts his hand on her knee to comfort her. She is sniffling.]]]
RICHARD: Donít worry, Em. Weíll be alright.
EMMELINE: Take me away from this place, Richard.
[[[The next day, the dinghy is laden with clothes, the trunk, the little boat Richard made, some fruit, and Emmeline, who is wearing her nice dress, as opposed to just her underclothes. Richard comes running up in his britches, with a bunch of bananas. He puts them in the boat, gets in, and they take off, rowing around the island.
