Er. This thing is on right?

Because you really have no idea the trouble I've had trying to tap back into the System, and honestly, if this proves to be another false alarm I will be quite frustrated - I mean there's only so much fish a man can take -

Oh. Oh good.

Hi? Could someone come get me? I don't think I like being ship wrecked. It was fun for a while, but after the routine set in it started to get very dull very quickly.

And I don't really have directions, because all the latitude/longitude calculations they teach you really don't work when you're not on Earth.

I wouldn't want anyone to be put out, though. I'm fine for the moment. There is, by some kind of miracle, fresh water, and I've got all the fish anyone could possibly want just sitting there in the ocean.

Which is very pretty, so I've got things to look at and am unlikely to go mad. Unless, that is, I end up like Aryton, completely lacking in reason due to too many years alone with my own foolishness.

Which I shouldn't. Since you're going to come rescue me even though I'm not sure which island I'm on, aren't you? Please? If I make cake?

My monkey! My monkey! I've missed you and we were worried and no one ever knew you were out of the city.

...I'll come get you. I'll find you. I have scanners and the mainland's not so big and I'll fly around until I see you!
Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! I think I'm on an island, but I'm not sure where. Maybe one of those ones just off the coast?

I found these skiffs when I was looking about and it looked like a nice day, and I thought, "Well, it couldn't hurt to just take a little trip..."

You'd think I'd know better.
It's been my experience, my cute, cute Corrigan-monkey, that monkeys never know better.

*purrs* I'll start with the islands closest to the city. I'll keep scanning for you, but you should look for me, too. Tell me if you see me?

We've been so worried! There were search teams and they found the Ford-monkey but not you and we were scared! Well, I was scared.
...That's very true. Given how smart we're all supposed to be, we do get ourselves into the most awful scrapes.

I'll keep an eye open, and see if I can't get a bigger fire going on the beach.

Thank you for worrying, Six. Ford went missing too? Is he all right?
You do, but that's why you have me! I like to take care of my monkeys.

Okay, but be careful with fire, my monkey. It scares me and I don't want to see you hurt.

The search parties brought him back, but I haven't seen him. I haven't been getting many visitors in the Jumper Bay, but someone on the System said that he's... I don't know the monkey words for it, but he's not acting the way that monkeys usually do.
And you do a very good job!

I'll be careful. I'm really very good with fire. Just not with weather.

Oh dear. Ah, well, with the way things work around here I'm sure we'll find a way to fix him up plenty quick!
*beam* I do!

...*flies around a bit*

Fire! I see fire!
*waves madly*

Good, good! I'm over here! Over here!
Dr. Corrigan! You're alive! *happy* We'll send Six to pick you up ASAP. We'd thought you'd been lost in the city. We were all so worried.

...

But you may be safer where you are. A lot's happened since your disappearance.
I'm very sorry to be a bother. It really did look fine when I started.

...

Anything's better than fish.
