    • In her opening voiceover, Erica mentions "that little fishing boat from The Perfect Storm" which was lost at sea. The Perfect Storm is a nonfiction book written by Sebastian Junger (1997) about the fishing boat Andrea Gail, as well as rescue efforts directed at several other ships caught up in the extratropical cyclone known as the 1991 Halloween Nor'easter.

  • Quotes

    • Erica: Remember that little fishing boat from The Perfect Storm, how it climbed up that endless wave hoping to reach the top and cruise down the other side to safety? That's me. But just like that fishing boat, I can't seem to quite crest that wave. So if you're in the water and the waves keep smacking you down, what do you do? Sometimes you manage to soldier on; clutch the steering wheel and face the storm. But other times, you look around and see the situation clearly - you're going to drown.

    • Erica: They say the greatest mistake is giving up; that true strength lies in the will to keep trying. Keep hoping things will get better. Keep reminding yourself all the things that you have accomplished. Keep everything in perspective. Keep up the fight. Because at the end of the day, that's what you're left with - the knowledge that you did your best and that you'll wake up tomorrow and try again.
