Against the Current (2009)
Jeff Kane: We are looking to buy a boat.
Boatyard Owner: You sure can't have one for free... Ha-ha-ha
[laughter, slowing turning into hysterical cough; also declining any help offer with a hand-sign. All shocked, cough lasts for about 20-25 seconds, and at the end, he spits out, saying:]
Boatyard Owner: What kinda boat?
Jeff Kane: [totally confused] What?
Boatyard Owner: What kind of boat you're looking for?
Jeff Kane: Oh... aah... smallest one you got...
Boatyard Owner: Like a canoe?
[laughing, accompanied with small, scary cough]
Paul Thompson: A motor-boat... with a weak motor...
Boatyard Owner: A weak motor?
Jeff Kane: Weakest one you got.
Katie: He's gonna swim down the river to the city, and we need to ride next to him. So, you know, just anything that you could put along the side...
Boatyard Owner: You swim to New York City?
Paul Thompson: Yep.
Boatyard Owner: Some sorta charity type of thing? A dollar for a mile, or something?
Paul Thompson: Not really.
Boatyard Owner: Hmmm... Well, I got an old whaler, with an old 70-horse-power engine, couldn't outrun the turtle
[showing them to the coast, to the boat. Small cough and all move towards the coast]
Boatyard Owner: Twenty-four hundred bucks...
Paul Thompson: [almost immediately] Sounds reasonable...
Jeff Kane: Yea, I believe that's the going rate for all boats with weak engines.
Boatyard Owner: You folks done much boating before?
[small cough - everyone looking at each other... ]
Katie: Uhmmm... I have. I went to the summer camp on lake Oregon. We had a water skiing, sometimes they let us steer a boat.
Boatyard Owner: Well, this boat couldn't pull the turtle, much less a skier.
Jeff Kane: What's with the turtles?
Boatyard Owner: [after a short pause] Piloting a boat is lot different from driving a car.
Jeff Kane: But, it, uh... starts with a key, right?
Boatyard Owner: Yeah. But it has no breaks for starters...
Jeff Kane: Neither did my last car. I think we will fine.
