" NO ONE EAT THE FLOWERS OR YOU'LL STAY HERE FOREVER!"
The captain tells his men to go and explore the island.
Once they are on the island, the men go of and explore. They find some flowers, and since they were drunk and hungry, they ate the flowers.
After eating the flowers the men go back to the ship, but when the captain tells them to get back on the ship, they start screaming that they do not want to leave.
