The show Deadliest Catch on Discovery Channel has been one of the most popular shows on television for six years. This show is real life as it is on a fishing boat in the Bering Sea and it is deadly. Rough seas, cold weather and slippery decks among other things are hazards that make this a tough dangerous job. The show is featured around crab fishing boats and their crews on the Bering Sea. Captain Phil Harris was a loved Captain of the Cornelia Marie. He sadly died of a massive stroke in the 2010 season and here are some of his best quotes.
In Season 4 Captain Phil Harris is angry with his kids when out of nowhere he sits down and says “Now you know why lions eat their young.” Phil really adores Josh and Jake, his two sons who in the past fished with him on his boat the Cornelia Marie.
Phil is popular for saying great quotes when he is having trouble with his kids or his boat. He spouted off “Everybody wonders why I smoke like a g*@$#n choo choo train.” Many times when someone says a naughty word on Deadliest Catch you can hear a toot of a fishing boat instead of the real word. Phil has quite a few boat toots in his dialog.
Episode 8 of season 4 found Phil having a tough day so he said, “Now my advice to anyone that wants to do this… is stay in school. Learn to be something, cause this will kill ya. This isn’t for everybody, you gotta be a little bit twisted to do this job.” If you watch Deadliest Catch you can probably agree with this quote.
In season 4 Phil got very sick. So sick we wondered if we would see him on the show again. Even when he was sick he could still perform for the cameras. Once as he was on the phone when he was in the hospital he said, “There’ve been some developments since last night that’ll just blow you away.” Turns out Phil had a blood clot that went through his heart and the viewers actually saw it as it had happened to him. Phil was a tough guy and he made it through that to be on another two seasons.
Sadly Phil Harris has passed on in Season 6. He will be missed by all his family, friends and fans. Season 7 of Deadliest catch will not be the same without him but there will still be more adventures from the Bering Sea and Phil’s two sons Jake and Josh.
