“The Perfect Storm” quotes(2000)
Plot – Gloucester, in Massachusetts, is one of the most important fishing harbor of northern Atlantic Ocean. Here, in October 1991, Andrea Gail sails, controlled by Billy Tyne, a veteran fisherman, who is back after a series of disappointing days. In the crew there are Bobby, who needs money to pay the divorce and start a new life with his girlfriend Christine; Dale, an expert sailor who has to support his wife and son; Alfred, a lively Jamaican man; Bugsy, a local man who’s looking for someone who cares about him; Sully, the last-minute substitute. Billy is convinced that hard times are about to end by going beyond the usual New England’s routes of fishing. When they are offshore, Billy gets aware of the storm that is arriving, but he convinces the crew to go ahead anyway. Unfortunately, the storm worsens drastically and swamps Billy’s crew on its way home. The fury of nature is mortal and the entire crew die.

“The fog's just lifting. Throw off your bow line, throw off your stern. You head out to South channel, past Rocky Neck, Ten Pound Island. Past Niles Pond where I skated as a kid. Blow your air-horn and throw a wave to the lighthouse keeper's kid on Thatcher Island. Then the birds show up: black backs, herring gulls, big dump ducks. The sun hits...” (continue)(continue reading)
“We got Hurricane Grace moving north off the Atlantic seaboard. Huge... getting massive. Two, this low south of Sable Island, ready to explode. Look at this. Three, a fresh cold front swooping down from Canada. But it's caught a ride on the jet stream... and is motoring hell-bent towards the Atlantic.
