The captain asks them what day it is, and they answer Tuesday, or everything except his birthday. Of course they all know it's his birthday but are keeping it a surprise. Alfonso and Elefterios play a song while the Captain looks out at the window. Captain remarks again that no one remembered his birthday and he heads up to the deck.
