Morton: I got on board in sight of the Atlantic. And before my eyes rot. I want to see the blue of the Pacific outside that window.
This is the line from the script of the movie Once upon a time in the West. I‘m not sure whether the script is transcribed correctly. For example the above line. Do you find the passage in bold meaningful? Maybe not "rot" but "road" but also in this case the meaning is given the context dubious.
