      • Helen Ross: If you only knew Mr. Roarke, how I feel about actually seeing Johnny again, just to talk to him again.
        Mr. Roarke: Oh I understand your emotions Miss Ross, but I must warn you that time does not stand still for any of us. There are always changes.
        Helen Ross: Yes well, yes for me I understand, but for Johnny, he's going to be exactly the way I remember him. I mean if I go back in time eight years before he died.
        Tattoo: You don't have to do that.
        Mr. Roarke: Tattoo is right Miss Ross, you will not be going back in time. Excuse me, Tattoo.
        Helen Ross: I won't.
        Mr. Roarke: You see, Captain John Day, did not die, he is in fact living on an Island not far from here at this very moment.
        Helen Ross: Johnny is alive.
        Mr. Roarke: Yes, Miss Ross.
        Helen Ross: No that can't be he would have let me know, he would have sent word to me or sent a letter.
        Mr. Roarke: Nevertheless it's true, as for the explanation it's better even necessary that Captain John Day explain to you himself. You will be taken to the island where he is as soon as you are ready.
        Helen Ross: I'm sorry, I'm ready to go.
        Mr. Roarke: Have faith Miss Ross, have faith that from the hearts most troubled moments comes the courage and wisdom with which to build new happiness.
