Ralph feels that their situation is futile and that they will never get off the island. Simon gives Ralph a reassuring prophetic statement.

You'll get back to where you came from.' Simon nodded as he spoke. He was kneeling on one knee, looking down from a higher rock which he held with both hands; his other leg stretched down to Ralph's level. Ralph was puzzled and searched Simon's face for a clue. 'It's so big, I mean----" Simon nodded. 'All the same. You'll get back all right. I think so, anyway.'
