  • one of the best episodes ever on "due south".

    10
    like all double episodes of "due south" (along with "victoria's secret" and "call of the wild") this one was outstanding even compared to the always high quality of "due south" episodes. it was nice to see that after getting off with very high tensions between kowalski and fraser making you think that they would never find together in friendship again, their relationship evolved even further (they often reminded of an quarreling old couple). this episodes brought some of the most hilarious moments and quotes ever on "due south" (like for instance when fraser is all excited about spotting a trout through a porthole claiming that the water quality of the great lakes is getting better while ray is in sheer horror because it is a sign as well that the ship is sinking). there are so many examples of the eccentric humour i loved in "due south" like fraser flying like superman, his fist spread in the air, the mounties and the romance on the bounty, sunsets at high noon, ... . this episodes were contradicting those who had claimed that seasons 3 and 4 never brought up the same quality seasons 1 and 2 had provided us with.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Ray Kowalski: (when the waterproof match goes out) Come on, light another one.
      Benton Fraser: I think we should save the others for an emergency.
      Ray Kowalski: And this is what? Recreational swimming?
      Benton Fraser: Well, Ray, you know, any situation can deteriorate... Ray! Oh, dear.

    • Benton Fraser: (in response to what would happen if he calculated incorrectly) Oh well, then, we'll be hopelessly lost.
      Ray Kowalski: Oh, see, this is what I love about you, Fraser. That real positive, you know, everything's-going-to-work-out-fine kind of attitude. It really butters my muffin, eh?
      Benton Fraser: Thank you, Ray.

    • Benton Fraser: This vessel sits about the wreck of the 'Robert MacKenzie'. Brave men lie bellow us in these waters, men whose names and reputations you used. This is their graveyard. You didn't think they would let you get away with it, did you?

    • Ray Kowalski: I don't like this! They got a big metal ship, we've got this little wooden boat!
      Sergeant Sam: We have the advantage of surprise!
      Ray Kowalski: But they can see us coming!
      Benton Fraser: Oh Ray, imagine yourself at sea. Suddenly you find yourself set upon by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Chicago police department in a vessel that is a replica of the HMS Bounty. Wouldn't you be surprised?
      Ray Kowalski: Depends.
      Benton Fraser: Depends on what?
      Ray Kowalski: If I could see you coming.

    • (Very romantic scenery. A lot of people are flirting or kissing on the mounties' vessel.)
      Benton Fraser: How very odd. It's high noon and the sun is setting.
      Robert Fraser: Oh, that's romance, son.

    • Robert Fraser: Wooden ships and iron men, oh, it's good to be back at sea again, son.
      Benton Fraser: You've never been at sea, dad.
      Robert Fraser: But I've been contemplating a cruise.

    • (Fraser and Kowalski in a submarine.)
      Ray Kowalski: You got any idea where we are?
      Benton Fraser: Yes. You're right behind me and I'm right in front of you.
      Ray Kowalski: I mean in the water.
      Benton Fraser: Oh!

    • (Fraser tries to teach swimming to Kowalski.).
      Benton Fraser: Think of yourself as a flower that opens by day and then closes down at night. Alright? Bloom! Close! Bloom! Close!
      Ray Kowalski: Right, okay. What do I do with my feet?
      Benton Fraser: Just kick. Kick as though you were interviewing a suspect.

    • (Fraser and Kowalski are looking out of a porthole that is under water already while the ship is sinking.)
      Benton Fraser: Oh, look at that!
      Ray Kowalski: It's fish!
      Benton Fraser: Yeah! But it's an encouraging sign.
      Ray Kowalski: It's not a sign, it's a fish!
      Benton Fraser: But it's a trout to be exact, which is a sign that the water quality of the Great Lakes is actually returning.
      Ray Kowalski: Look, why are you arguing with me, Fraser? It's not a sign, it's fish. That means, the boat is sinking and we're dying!
      Benton Fraser: Oh yes, it's a sign of that also.
