All right, son, there's an old Japanese saying. "When the noble carp has lost its hatchling..."
He's helping me, and I'm gonna help him.
33% of deaths happen while someone is watching. But Henry wasn't there
on that Tuesday penny died. I wonder why it is, when life turns on you, you go back to those places in your mind, those places you knew, that made you happy, made you feel safe. Sometimes it's the spark of a memory, like the places we've been, things we done before, or people we knew or loved. In the end, I think that's what it's all about, the people that left a mark on you. You want to hold on to 'em. You want to take 'em with you, but you can't.

My pa always said the sea was a lonely place when you're way out there
and there ain't another soul for weeks around, that you can feel the loneliness like a weight around your heart. I think he meant that we ain't supposed to be alone on our journeys, that we need them other people to know we're alive, that we matter.
Henry, there's an old Japanese proverb. The wounded koi cannot tend to its gills if it seeks solace and diversion of the pleasant seaweed god. Do you have any idea what... what that means?

Some people try to hold on to their memories. Others try to forget. Neither works. And after enough time passes by, you find you ain't the same as you used to be.
How old is she?
Oh, my, god, Henry. Are you and she...
-What? No! No, of course not! No, I-I'm helping her.
Helping her with what?
-I told you. We're building a raft.
