Re: Insane question about sails
Morse: What do you make of this, Lewis?
Lewis: An open boat, no means of propulsion, no supplies, a thousand miles from land, and all nine dead, Sir.
Morse: Murdered, Lewis, murdered. Every single one of them was killed, and that one at the bow recently.
Morse: Look at the nostrils. What do you see? Or, what don't you see?
Lewis: ... Crabs, I don't see any crabs, Sir.
Morse: Correct, Lewis. That one at the Stern- hardly any eyes left on that one. They do quick work, crabs.
Lewis: Sir, we tracked the Boat. It was reported washed overboard off the Islets of Langerhans, last Tuesday, from a Ruritanian Freighter.
Lewis: All Crew and passengers accounted for. Sir.
Morse: What else do you see?
Lewis: Evidence of a struggle, Sir. More than one struggle. The man by the bucket appears to have an Anchor imbedded in his chest.
Morse: A Danforth Anchor, Lewis. Very efficient.
Morse: Yes, Lewis, out with it.
Lewis: Are we dealing with Very Bad People?
Morse: Yes, Lewis, Very Bad People indeed.
