Simon predicts Ralph will get home okay. Ralph jokes, "got a ship in your pocket?" Simon shakes his head good heartedly and just says that he just thinks Ralph will be okay. Simon is Golding's Christ-figure in this book. His predictions are prophetic even though he doesn't know how he comes up with the. Simon proves his sense of mystery and wisdom many times during the novel.
