About Tony and VincentEdit
In 1964 New York City, Captain Sheffied is the CO and criuse director and house detective of the Monte Carlo-themed cruise ship which is owned by aristocrat/shipping magnate Weathers Farrington, whose daughter, Catherine Farrington is about to marry a businessman/entrepenuer and a ruputed criminal figure Vincent Loggia, who's only trying to wed Catherine to marry into the Farrington family in order to buy Weather's business, as Sam, who leaps into Phillip Dumont, Catherine's ex-husband, tries to prevent it from occuring, as in the original history of events before Sam's leap into it, Philip, Sam's leapee, went missing, declared lost at sea, as Catherine, who wound up marrying Vincent before mysteriously dying two years later, presumably from a suicide, torn from grief of the assumed death of her ex-husband Philip.
Sam, who's been threatend all along by Vincent and Tony for showing up on the Farrington yacht to crash the nuptials, manages to escape certain death by getting tossed out into the Atlantic Ocean from the garbage dispoal room, into the reception area, covered in garbage, and tells Captain Sheffield, who at first, didn't believe Sam's charge that Vincent was trying to kill him, to have Vincent arrested for attempted murder, which he prepares to do as Catherine, just moments earlier, told Vincent that she didn't love him and couldn't wed him. Sam and Vincent then get into a fight, and Sam knocks Vincent down with one punch, and Weathers, a former boxer in college, does the same to Tony.
