Maersk Alabama, you should alert your crew, get your fire hoses ready, and follow lockdown procedures.

Yeah. Is that it?

They’re not here to fish.

I know how to handle America. Give me the pistol.

Listen up. We have been boarded by four armed pirates. You know the drill. We stay hidden no matter what. I don’t want any hostages. We stay locked down until help arrives. No one comes out until you hear the non-duress password from me which is “suppertime.”
– Captain Richard Phillips
Jesus.
– Maersk Alabama Crewman
If the pirates find you, remember, you know this ship. They don’t. Make them feel like they’re in charge but keep them away from the important things like the generator and the engine controls. Stick together… and we’ll be all right. Good luck.
