Bank it and use the money to fund a rescue expedition (this a cheque for best-seller after all
) with helicopters, ex-Special Forces guides/hunters, a stowaway 12-year old nephew that is a genius at something and a "rescue expert" or "expedition manager" that turns out to be a henchman of the evil guy looking to permanently silence the poor sailor who was dumped on the island to keep him from testifying in a Congressional hearing about the evil corporation that dumps radioactive waste in Springfield (while blaming Mr Burns).
P.S. sorry for going off topic...
