    After docking in New Bedford, Captain Ahab is suggested by Starbuck to seek release from the nightmares that have been plaguing him, though by unconventional means.

    Summary

    A conversation spurred on by a moment’s quiet contemplation could change the fates of those aboard the Pequod. But will Ahab’s stubborn denials, like those of the apostle, Peter, be the death of him and his men? Or is there still hope to be found at sea?

    Summary

    Captain Ahab is on a mission: to get revenge on the terrifying monster which ate his leg. Said monster is blue, steam-powered and goes by the name of Thomas.

    Basically Moby Dick but Moby Dick is now Thomas the Tank Engine, don't ask me how trains can swim. You don't really have to know anything about Moby Dick or Thomas to enjoy :)

    Summary

    Warm weather and starry skies seem to give even the most reticent of men some feeling of sentimentality. It certainly has that effect on Ahab, though Starbuck doesn't quite know what to make of it all.

    Summary

    If, as ye take this broad recounting, aught has looked odd in the culture of whalemen— indeed, should you be anything less than a salt-seasoned veteran of that most noble fishery, and particularly to that fellow among ye whose feet have never left the hard-packed soil of his native land, that veritable tree of devout landsmen from whom roots may well spring into the earth or all life exist in a bulb beneath its surface— to you most especially, it may be necessary to preface the next recounting with an explication of the whaleman’s notion of the holiday.
     

    During the search for the leaking barrel of whale oil, a detour becomes necessary.

    A light-hearted vignette inserted into the story of Moby Dick, fulfilling that fundamental human desire to give the crew of the Pequod a beach episode to relax.

    Summary

    “It so chanced, that after the Parsee’s disappearance, I was he whom the Fates ordained to take the place of Ahab’s bowsman, when that bowsman assumed the vacant post; the same, who, when on the last day the three men were tossed from out of the rocking boat, was dropped astern.” - Epilogue
    Or, on the night before the Pequod is to sink, Ishmael makes a choice.

    Summary

    This is a cogent vice thou hast here, carpenter; let me feel its grip once. So, so; it does pinch some.

    Oh, sir, it will break bones—beware, beware!

    No fear; I like a good grip; I like to feel something in this slippery world that can hold, man.

    Summary

    "1923 or 1851 or 1760 or any time before, it doesn’t matter. The ship could be made of pure steel and still, without fail, there it would be. White as a bone, big as the moon, impossible to stop as death."

    Ishmael/Queequeg and the existential horror of being constantly reincarnated just to return to the boat.
