Titre original : Mr. Sailor on the Hill
Tom drops Candy off at a silent Pony's Home: everybody is at Governor Cartwright's ranch. When she hears Terry's harmonica tune, Candy rushes inside expecting to see him, and finds Cookie instead. Cookie pretends to be on shore leave from the 'Sea Gull' with Captain Nieven, but later Cookie confesses to Candy that he was beaten by other sailors because he has no father to defend him and does not want to return to the Sea Gull. John overhears this and together with Jimmy plans to welcome Vida and Vokado who are asking around in search of Cookie with an assault. Candy makes Miena intervene. The two men admit that Cookie was beaten up, but are incensed that Cookie did not tell all. They explain to Candy that Cookie had slept while on night watch and the 'Sea Gull' was almost run over by a cruise ship, and so Cookie was punished for endangering the lives of the whole crew. Candy decides to return to the hospital and Tom comes to pick her up, bringing Cookie along as well as Mr. Steave who gets admitted into the hospital for tests. It turns out that Mr. Steave's heart is fine, but he has to lay off the drinking of whiskey.
