There is an early scene of dialogue on the beach between Ellen Brody (Lorraine Gary) and local motel owner Mrs. Taft (Fritzi Jane Courtney) concerning when (if ever) Mrs. Brody will be considered an "islander."

It passes.

Seconding John's disagreement.

Ellen Brody: I just want to know one thing - when do I get to become an islander?
Mrs. Taft: Ellen, never, never! You're not born here, you're not an islander, that's it.

Barely passes, but yes.
