First mate Alfred Morgan loses at cards to Irving, the giant squid.
I was thinking about situations that involved both the quiet and the loud, but one party was unaware of what was happening. Initial thoughts were a dome dropped over a screaming monster in the mountains, a dog barking at itself in the mirror, and a teenager wearing headphones singing loudly in a quiet room. I landed on this scene: sailor passes out after a drunken night of cards and whiskey. Enter Irving, the giant squid. While crewmates abandon ship, Mr. Morgan slumbers on, unaware of the ruckus around him and the fact that he is being beaten at cards by a cephalopod.
