Good catch, zn...

Only a handful of people would have probably caught that line.. I was watching the movie about 4-5 years ago and caught a line that I had never processed, or heard or understood before.. Quint says something like, "Haul in the line or he'll foul us!"..

Well, that never made sense to me until I started watching Whale Wars.. Where the Sea Shepherds fight the Japanese whalers and one of their biggest tactics is to drag a long rope with metal twisted around it and try cut in front of the whaler's boat path so that the whaler's prop sucks in the line and freezes the prop - a tactic called "fouling" the prop.. All of a sudden Quint's line made sense!



Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
