The name "Captain Greybar" is an inside reference to the building where Chris' father, Bob Elliott, and his radio and stage partner Ray Goulding, had their "Bob and Ray" offices for many years (The well-known "Graybar Building" in NYC). Bob & Ray also had a company called GEG, which (long story short) had to be changed from Goulding-Elliott-Graybar to the differently spelled Goulding-Elliott-Greybar, under threat from the Graybar Building's lawyers. So, Chris gets the last laugh on those lawyers with the name of the tyrannical captain. See more »
After fishing Trina out of the water and having his initial dialogue exchange with her, Nathanial summons the rest of the crew to meet her. Shortly after doing so, he refers to Trina by name despite Trina not having introduced herself to him in the previous scene. See more »

Ah, stop that. You'll have my glass eye foggin' over.

The fish stick kitten scene made me laugh so hard I missed most of the rest of the movie, but I'm sure it was also great. I don't think this movie will ever get the recognition it deserves. Mostly because Chris Elliot is kind of unpleasant. Not to me. Well, okay yes to me. He is unpleasant to me, but in a good way. People should just lighten up and realize that this movie is brilliant. Come on. True I do like this movie a lot because of scenes that are actually in Get A Life, Chris Elliot's TV show. And that's not really fair. But that episode where Martin Mull comes over and they go to that brothel while they play "Afternoon Delight?" That was so funny that it kind of bleeds over into Cabin Boy and makes that funny too.
