|CHRISTOF: A dead one at that.
INTERVIEWER: Gotta' say, writing Kirk back in--master stroke.
CHRISTOF: Since Kirk started this whole crisis in Truman's life, I came to the conclusion that he was the only one who could end it.
Flashback: Truman at the Beach
KIRK: Truman! Truman, no! That's off limits.
YOUNG TRUMAN: Why? What's over there?
KIRK: Nothing. It's dangerous, that's all. You've gotta' know your limitations, Truman.
INTERVIEWER: Let's remind viewers of exactly why dad was written out in the first place.
CHRISTOF: As Truman grew up, we were forced to manufacture ways to keep him on the island.
Flashback: Truman at School
YOUNG TRUMAN: I'd like to be an explorer. Like the great Magellan.
TEACHER: Oh, you're too late. There's really nothing left to explore.
CHRISTOF: Finally, I came up with the concept of Kirk's drowning.
INTERVIEWER: Most effective. Truman's been terrified of water ever since.
CHRISTOF: When Kirk read the synopsis for the death at sea episode he was…disappointed, to say the least. And I'm sure that's what caused him to break back onto the set.
INTERVIEWER: But, how do you intend to explain his 22 year absence?
