THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!

TIME TO GET SOME GOLD!

Narrator:
...RISKING THEIR LIVES
ON THE HUNT FOR GOLD

IN THE RAGING WATERS
OF MCKINLEY CREEK,

ONE OF THE WORLD'S
MOST DANGEROUS MINE SITES.

I'D LOVE TO PULL UP ABOUT
A BUCKET OF GOLD,

JUST A BIG,
BIG BUCKET OF GOLD.

THAT WOULD MAKE MY YEAR.

THAT WOULD MAKE MY 10 YEARS.

Narrator: FIVE THOUSAND FEET UP
IN THE CHILKAT MOUNTAINS,

A SERIES OF GLACIERS
ERODED GOLD

FROM THE MOTHER LODE
OVER MILLIONS OF YEARS.

MELTWATER CARRIED IT DOWNSTREAM

AND DEPOSITED POCKETS OF GOLD
IN THE BENDS

AND PLUNGE POOLS
OF THESE REMOTE, RUGGED CREEKS.

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO, OLD-TIMERS

HAULED NEARLY
80,000 OUNCES OF GOLD

FROM THESE CREEKS
WORTH TODAY ALMOST $100 MILLION.

THE OLD-TIME MINERS COULDN'T
GET TO WHERE I'M DIGGING NOW.

IT'S JUST TOO DAMN HARD.

THIS YEAR, I'VE GOT MORE
EQUIPMENT AND MORE PEOPLE.

WE'RE DEFINITELY GOING TO GET
DOWN TO THE JACKPOT.

WE'RE THE ONLY REDNECKS
CRAZY ENOUGH TO DO THIS [BLEEP],

AND WE'RE BACK AGAIN.

WHOO-HOO!

Narrator: WES RICHARDSON
AND HIS BROTHER, PAUL,

[ WES TARZAN YELLS ]

HAVE RETURNED FROM TEXAS

FOR THEIR SHARE
OF THE MCKINLEY FORTUNE.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE ALL A BIT CRAZY,
AND WE'VE GOT THAT FEVER.

I'M READY TO FIND THE GOLD.
IT'S TIME TO GET THE GOLD!

CARLOS MINOR...

MORNING COMMUTE, MAN!
WHOO!

Narrator: ...HAS EVEN MORE
AT STAKE THIS SEASON.

I JUST HAD A KID, JUST HAD
A LITTLE GIRL, LITTLE GIRL.

THE DEAL WAS WITH MY WIFE

WAS FOR ME TO COME UP
IN THE FIRST SEASON.

WE COULD HAVE A KID,
AND WE'LL GET A CHURCH WEDDING.

SO ONE DOWN.

IF WE FIND GOLD, CHURCH WEDDING,
EVERYBODY IS INVITED.

ALL RIGHT.

-YOU READY?
-SEE Y'ALL ON THE OTHER SIDE!

-LET'S DO IT.
-HERE WE GO!

Fred: AH, HERE COMES OUR NEW
GUY, RICH.

HE'S IN FROM OREGON.

Man: DON'T LOOK DOWN!

OH.

Fred:
HE RUNS A COMPUTER BUSINESS,

BUT HE IS REALLY HANDY
WITH A WRENCH.

OH, MY [BLEEP].

WHAT AM I DOING?

I NEED THAT.

HE'S LEFT HIS FAMILY.

[BLEEP] [BLEEP].

Rich: THAT WAS CRAZY.

I WAS SCARED TO DEATH
WHEN I TOOK OFF,

AND I'M SHAKING RIGHT NOW.

OH, MY [BLEEP].

THAT WAS CRAZY.

Carlos:

NOW WE STILL GOT TO HIKE
TO THE [BLEEP] DANG MINE SITE.

COME ON, GUYS.

I KNOW THERE'S GOLD ON MY CLAIM.

I'M A GET IT THIS SEASON.

ALL RIGHT, GUYS.

EVERYBODY, WATCH OUT!

Narrator:
TO GET TO THE MINE SITE,
THEY HAVE A MILE-AND-A-HALF HIKE

THROUGH REMOTE
ALASKAN WILDERNESS.

Man: I KNOW I HEAR SOMETHING
COME FROM UP THAT WAY.

-AH!
-BEAR!
-BEAR! HEY!

-THERE'S A BEAR!
-YAH!
-RIGHT THERE!

-HYAH, HYAH, HYAH!
-GET OUT OF HERE!
-BEAR!

-HE'S ALL RIGHT. HE'S GONE.

Carlos:
WHOA, THAT WAS CLOSE.

Man:YOU KNOW THEY'RE HUNGRY
RIGHT NOW.

-YEAH.
-REALLY HUNGRY.
-HERE WE GO.

Narrator: THE NEXT CHALLENGE:

A 300-FOOT DESCENT
TO THE RAGING CREEK BELOW.

RICH, I KNOW YOU'RE NEW,
SO JUST DON'T DIE.

ALL RIGHT?

THIS IS DANGEROUS STUFF HERE.
-GOT YOU.

IF YOU KNOCK A ROCK LOOSE,
YELL, "ROCK."

OKAY.
ROCKS!

ROCKS!

Narrator: THESE TREACHEROUS
RAVINES ARE THE REASON NO ONE

HAS YET MINED THE GOLD
FROM DUSTIN'S CLAIM.

-WHOA!
-OH!

-WHOA.
-OH [BLEEP]!

-FRED!
-FRED!

I'M ALL RIGHT.

-WHOA.
-HOLY MOLY, THAT WAS CLOSE!

HELL, THIS IS WHERE I WANTED
TO GO IN THE FIRST PLACE.

WATCHING FRED WALK THIS HILL,
HE'S ALMOST 75 NOW,

AND I'M JUST STARTING TO WONDER
HOW LONG HE CAN DO THIS STUFF,

SO HOPEFULLY THIS YEAR
IS OUR YEAR TO HIT IT BIG.

I'M $75,000 IN DEBT,

AND IF I DON'T GET DOWN THERE
IN THE GOLD, I'M SCREWED.

THE SOONER WE CAN GET STARTED,
THE BETTER.

HOLY [BLEEP].

BRIDGE IS DOWN!

Carlos:
OH, THAT DON'T LOOK GOOD.

Man: WHAT THE HELL?

-AW, IT SPLIT IN HALF, MAN!
-WHOA!

-YEAH.
-THEY GOT OUR BRIDGE.

WELL, WE GOT A LITTLE BUMP
IN THE ROAD,

BUT HELL, THAT AIN'T
GOING TO STOP US.

THAT IS NOTHING.
IT LOST A FEW BOARDS,

BUT WE COULD PROBABLY BOLT
THAT THING ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A BUNCH
OF WORK, BUT WE CAN DO IT,

AND WE'RE GOING TO GET DOWN
AND GET THE GOLD.

-AMEN, BROTHER!
-RIGHT ON.

-AMEN!
-YEP.

LAST SEASON, HOW MUCH GOLD
DID YOU GUYS GET?

-WE GOT A COUPLE OUNCES.
-YEAH.

I MEAN, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO
COME BACK TO THIS PLACE,

I MEAN, THE EXACT SAME SPOT
WHEN YOU GOT VERY LITTLE GOLD?

WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE KNOW
THERE'S GOLD DOWN THERE.

I'VE SEEN GOLD 15 FEET DOWN
IN THAT HOLE

RIGHT UNDERNEATH THAT BRIDGE
AND A LITTLE BIT BACK.

SOON AS WE GOT TO THE BOTTOM
OF THIS HOLE,

WE STARTED FINDING
GOLD IMMEDIATELY.

LIKE, IT JUST STARTED HAPPENING
JUST IMMEDIATELY.

Narrator: LAST SEASON...

LOOK AT THAT RIGHT THERE!

...AFTER 20 WEEKS
OF DREDGING...

WOW.

...THE DAKOTA BOYS
HIT A PAY STREAK

THAT PRODUCED HALF THEIR SEASON
TOTAL IN JUST 2 DAYS.

-THAT'S INCREDIBLE.
-WHOA!

-CLEAN THAT SUCKER OUT!
-WHOO!

Narrator:
BUT JUST AS THEY STARTED TO HIT
THIS MAJOR DEPOSIT...

GET HIM OUT OF THERE!

WHOO, DOGGY!
LOOK AT THAT MOTHER[BLEEP].

...A FEROCIOUS STORM...

THAT BRIDGE IS GOING TO GO!

Man: GET OUT!
GET OUT!

...FORCED THEM TO LEAVE BEHIND
A TREASURE CHEST...

Man: WATCH OUT!

...THAT COULD CONTAIN
MILLIONS IN GOLD.

THE GOLD IS IN THAT HOLE,
AND I'M GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT.

WE'RE GOING TO GET IT THIS YEAR.

Man: YOU GOT TO
HAVE TRUST IN US, MAN.

-IT'S THERE, BRO.
-WE'VE DONE THE TESTING.

Man: IT'S THERE, MAN.

Wes: MOTHER NATURE
KICKED OUR ASS LAST SEASON

BUT NOT THIS SEASON.

THAT'S MY DAUGHTER'S FRICKING
COLLEGE EDUCATION RIGHT THERE.

THAT'S MY NEW HOME.

I'M ITCHING TO GET IN THIS
[BLEEP] DAMN WATER.

TO DIVE IN THIS WATER,
YOU DEFINITELY HAVE GOT TO BE

A LITTLE BIT OF CRAZY,

A LOT OF GUTS
AND SOME BIG BRASS BALLS.

-I THINK WE OUGHT TO GET ON IT.
-LET'S GO.
-WHOO!

Fred:
I'M GOING TO HIT 75 THIS SUMMER.

THIS IS GOING TO BE MY SUMMER.

WE'RE GOING TO GET SOME GOLD.

Narrator: UP AHEAD...

WELCOME TO THE DEATH ZONE.

YEAH, DUDE!

THE HARDEST PART IS THIS WATER
WANTS TO EAT US.

-I SEE A HELICOPTER.
-HERE WE GO!

NO, NO!

OH, [BLEEP]!

Man: PULL THE ROCK, MAN!

Fred: IT AIN'T LONG ENOUGH.

HEY, NOT LONG ENOUGH!

OH [BLEEP]!

WE GOT TO FIGURE OUT
HOW TO GET ACROSS HERE.

THAT'S THE BIGGEST PROBLEM.

Narrator:
HIGH IN THE CHILKAT MOUNTAINS,

THE DAKOTA BOYS RETURN
TO THEIR MINE SITE.

Dustin: WE CAN MAKE
A WORKSTATION OFF OF THAT.

Man: YEAH.

IT LOOKS
PRETTY DANGEROUS TO ME.

Narrator: THEY CAN'T DIVE
FOR GOLD UNTIL THEY REPAIR

THE WINTER STORM DAMAGE.

TO FIX THIS BRIDGE,
I NEED TO GET THE LINE

ACROSS WHERE IT HANGS DOWN,

AND WE CAN WORK OFF OF THAT
AND JACK UP THAT OTHER SIDE.

WE'RE GOING TO USE THIS LINE
AS A FRICKING ANCHOR TO...

TO PICK UP ON IT
WITH COME-ALONGS

AND THEN BOLT IT TOGETHER.

Narrator: DUSTIN'S PLAN --

USE THE EXISTING CABLE
ACROSS THE CREEK

TO ATTACH A LINE TO A RATCHET,

THEN HOIST THE BRIDGE UP
SO IT'S LEVEL.

NEXT, PULL THE SHORT BROKEN END
OF THE BEAM BACK INTO PLACE

AND SECURE THE REPAIR
WITH FOUR WOODEN BRACES.

WELCOME TO THE DEATH ZONE.

THIS IS VERY EXTREME.

WHOO.

Carlos:
TAKE YOUR TIME, BROTHER.

ALL RIGHT.
[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]

UGLIEST KNOT I EVER DID TIE.

WELL, I SET MY LINE, AND I THINK
I'M ZIP-LINING BACK DOWN.

[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]

A-FRICKING-MAZING, MAN.

Narrator:
TO ATTACH DUSTIN'S ROPE,

SOMEONE NEEDS TO CROSS
THE BROKEN BRIDGE.

PAUL IS FIRST TO VOLUNTEER.

-PAUL!
-NO MISTAKES!

IF YOU FALL IN THAT WATER,
YOU'RE [BLEEP], MAN.

THAT CURRENT AIN'T NO JOKE.

IT'LL SPIN AROUND AND JUST BITE
[BLEEP] OUT OF YOU.

WHOO!

-IS THIS YOU?
-YEAH!

-RIGHT HERE, RIGHT?
-YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

ALL RIGHT.

Narrator:
NEXT, CARLOS MUST ATTACH THE
RATCHET LINE TO THE BRIDGE

JUST INCHES ABOVE THE DEADLY
38-DEGREE MELTWATER.

CAN YOU SEE WHAT'S BELOW ME?

AND I'M RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE,
BROTHER.

LOOK AT ME,
[BLEEP] GETTING READY TO DIE.

Dustin:
THAT'S A REALLY BAD SPOT
TO FALL, SO DON'T FALL.

LIFT UP ON THAT THING.

CAN YOU LIFT ON IT?

-AH!
-AH! [BLEEP] YEAH!

Narrator:
IT'S DOWN TO CARLOS TO MANEUVER

[BLEEP] RIVER, MAN.

Carlos: OH! WHOA!

-OH!

HEY, HOLD IT. HOLD ON. PULL IT!

-GOT YOU?

-YEAH.
-DON'T GET IN THE PINCH POINT.

GET OUT OF THERE!

GET OUT OF THERE!
-GOT IT.

THANK YOU!
ALL RIGHT.

HOLD ON.
THAT WAS BAD.

LET'S NOT DO THAT AGAIN.

THE HARDEST PART IS THIS WATER
WANTS TO EAT US.

GUYS, WE GOT TO FIX THIS BRIDGE.
COME ON, GUYS.

Carlos: COME ON, MAN.
YOU GOT IT!

NOW WE MIGHT BE ABLE
TO LIFT THAT UP.

HERE WE GO, MAN!
COMING UP.

YEAH, YEAH.
THIS IS GOING TO WORK.

ALL RIGHT.

I NEED THIS BOARD TO BE
JACKED UP WHEN I LIFT THIS.

Carlos: OKAY.

COME ON, GUYS.
COME ON, MAN.

YOU GOT IT!
-[ GRUNTS ]

-THAT'S IT! THAT'S IT, MAN!
-THAT'S THE RIGHT...

WHY DON'T WE PUT
A TOURNIQUET ON IT?

GOT IT.
-CARLOS TIES A ROPE TOURNIQUET

TO PULL THE TWO PARTS
OF THE BEAM TOGETHER.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING
TO TWIST THAT WITH?

A PIPE OR SOMETHING.

YEAH, DUDE!

THAT'LL HOLD IT.

Dustin: GOING TO BRACE IT UP
WITH SOME BOARDS.

WE'RE GOING TO PUT SOME BOARDS
ON THE INSIDE AND THE OUTSIDE.

-THAT SHOULD BE IT, HUH?
-I THINK THAT'LL DO US.

AH!

TWO MORE BOARDS,
WE'LL BE DONE!

THAT'S IT!

ALL RIGHT!
WELL, WE GOT IT DONE.

-GOOD JOB, GUYS.
-GOOD JOB, MAN.

HELL YEAH!

WE PUT IT RIGHT BACK TOGETHER
WITH BUBBLE GUM AND DUCT TAPE,

BUT IT'S TOGETHER, AND IT'S
CROSSABLE, SO THAT'S A BRIDGE.

I MEAN, THE REAL WORLD,
THIS IS A PIECE OF TRASH,

BUT [BLEEP]
THIS IS BEAUTIFUL HERE, MAN.

Narrator:
NEXT DAY, DOWN AT THEIR
BASE CAMP ON PORCUPINE CREEK...

-SO DUCT TAPE IT.
-ALL RIGHT.

-THAT SOUNDS...
-IT'LL GET US BY.

Narrator:
...FRED AND NEW GUY
RICH ARE REASSEMBLING

THE DREDGE THEY USED
LAST SEASON.

THIS IS THE OLD DREDGE THAT
WE WERE USING, NICE AND COMPACT.

BASICALLY, ALL THIS THING IS IS
A GIANT WATER VACUUM CLEANER.

Narrator:
THIS SEASON, DUSTIN HAS
A SECRET WEAPON...

OH, GET OUT OF TOWN, DUDE!

...A BRAND-NEW $17,000 DREDGE
CAPABLE OF PROCESSING

12 YARDS OF PAY DIRT AN HOUR,
TWICE AS MUCH AS FRED'S OLD ONE.

Carlos: THIS FRICKING SLUICE
IS FRICKING HUGE, MAN!

FROM POINT A TO POINT B,
IT HAS ITS OWN ZIP CODE.

NO GOLD IS EVER GOING
TO ESCAPE THIS.

NO.

HOW MUCH DIRT ARE WE GOING
TO MOVE WITH [BLEEP]?

I'M HOPING AT LEAST
TWICE AS MUCH.

-GAH!
-THE DREDGE IS...

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

IT'S ABOUT...
-GOD.

...THREE TIMES THE SIZE,
SURFACE SIZE.

THIS FIXES ALL OUR PROBLEMS.

WHAT THE HELL YOU GOT
OVER HERE ANYWAY?

Dustin:
A GIANT-SIZED DREDGE.

YEP.
STEP IT RIGHT IN.

OUR SLUICE BOX IS JUST ABOUT THE
SAME SIZE AS YOUR FULL DREDGE.

BIGGER ISN'T NECESSARILY BETTER.

Dustin:
FRED WON'T ADMIT IT,

BUT HE WANTS TO WORK
OFF OF THIS MACHINE.

HE'S LOOKING AT HIS LITTLE,
BITTY TOY OVER THERE,

AND HE'S FEELING
A LITTLE INADEQUATE.

THERE IT IS.

AND WE'RE READY TO GO.

IT'S GOING TO MAKE ME
SOME GOLD NOW.

ALL WE GOT TO DO IS GET
IT UP THERE AND GET STARTED.

Narrator:
WITH TWO DREDGES THIS SEASON,
FATHER AND SON

WILL BE WORKING
TOGETHER SIDE BY SIDE.

THESE ARE DUSTIN'S CLAIMS.

TECHNICALLY, I'M WORKING FOR HIM
BUT BASICALLY AS A...

MAYBE I'LL BE AN OLD SAGE,

AN ADVISOR OR SOMETHING
OF THAT NATURE.

Dustin: A LITTLE BIT
OF LUMBER COMING.

Wes: EVENTUALLY,
WE'RE GOING TO NEED IT.

FRED, THAT'S NOT JUST
A LITTLE BIT OF LUMBER, MAN.

WE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT THIS,

THAT I DIDN'T WANT YOU BUILDING
A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
-I JUST SAID...

NO, NO.
I'M NOT...

SO IF YOU NEED PIECES OF LUMBER,
HOW DO YOU GET THEM

OUT THERE...
-WHAT DO I NEED...

-...CARRY THEM?
-...LUMBER FOR, FRED?

THERE'S NOTHING ON THE OTHER
SIDE OF THE CREEK

TO EVEN WALK ON.

EVERYTHING IS...
-WE'RE NOT BUILDING...

-...LIKE THIS.
-...THIS YEAR.

WE'RE NOT BUILDING.

HOW ABOUT IF I JUST LEAVE ALL OF
THAT SITTING RIGHT THERE,

AND YOU PAY
THE HELICOPTER BILL

WHEN WE HAVE TO HAVE IT
OUT THERE?

WATCH YOURSELF DOWN THERE.

WELL, I'M JUST PLANNING AHEAD.

Dustin: FRED IS GOING TO DECK
THE ENTIRE CREEK IF I LET HIM,

AND WE'RE NOT BUILDING
A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF.

IT'S NOT HAPPENING THIS YEAR,
AND WE'VE HAD THESE DISCUSSIONS,

AND HE DECIDED
HE WAS GOING TO GO AHEAD

AND BUY THE LUMBER ANYWAY.

OKAY.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

HE'S GOT NO RIGHT TO DO
ANY OF THIS STUFF.

YES, SIR.
YOU TOO.

HE DON'T OWN ANYTHING.
HIS NAME IS ON NOTHING.

IT'S JUST, SOMEHOW,
HE THINKS HE'S IN CHARGE,

AND THIS IS WHERE WE GET INTO
TROUBLE, BUT I'M IN CONTROL.

IT'S NOT GOING UP THERE.

SO TODAY WE'VE GOT A HELICOPTER
COMING SO WE CAN...

WE'RE GOING TO LIFT ALL OF
OUR STUFF INTO THE DIVE SITE.

I SPENT EVERY DIME
I COULD ON THIS STUFF,

HELICOPTER LIFT MAY GO WRONG,

AND MY DREDGE
MIGHT GET DESTROYED,

AND THAT'LL BE THE END
OF EVERYTHING HERE

BECAUSE I CAN'T BUY ANOTHER ONE.

I JUST NEED IT TO GO OKAY.
WHO KNOWS?

HOPEFULLY, FRED DOESN'T
MESS THIS UP FOR ME.

I'LL TAKE THESE THINGS OFF

YOU DROP THIS THING OUT OF THE
SKY, AND WE'RE JUST GOING HOME.

OH, LORD. BIG DAY.
WE GOT HELICOPTER FLIGHTS TODAY.

WE'VE GOT PROBABLY ABOUT A HALF
A DOZEN OR SO LOADS

TO HAUL OUT OF HERE.

WE GOT TWO DREDGES.

WE GOT FUEL TO TAKE OUT THERE.

WE HAVE BASKETS.

WE HAVE MATERIALS.

WES, DON'T LET HIM
BRING UP THAT LUMBER, MAN.

WE DON'T NEED IT UP THERE.

PLEASE.
-OKAY. I'LL DO MY BEST.

THE LUMBER NEEDS
TO STAY DOWN HERE.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY SPACE

Fred: CLEAR!

SO HOW ARE THEY GOING TO
HOOK UP A THING

OUT THE MIDDLE OF THE WATER?
-I DON'T KNOW.

I THINK THEY HAD PLANNED
TO HAVE THEIR ROPES

TIED OFF ON THE SIDES,

AND AS SOON AS IT SAT DOWN,
THEY WERE GOING TO GO OVER THERE

WITH CARABINERS.

WELL, THAT'S THE WRONG
THING TO DO.

THAT'S THE WRONG THING TO DO.

Dustin:
YEAH, MARY, I'M GOING TO ASK YOU
TO DO SOMETHING

A LITTLE DIFFERENT
THAN WE PLANNED.

I'M STANDING OVER ON LAND

AND I'M GOING TO HOOK INTO IT
UPSTREAM ACROSS THE CREEK.

Mary:
COPY THAT.

I WILL HOLD IT WHILE YOU
ATTACH A LINE

AND THEN SET IT
UPSTREAM FROM YOU.

THAT'S CORRECT.

Narrator:
WHEN THE DREDGE ARRIVES,

DUSTIN WILL ATTACH
TWO TAG LINES.

THE LINES ARE ANCHORED
TO PULLEYS

ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE CREEK
TO PREVENT THE RAGING CURRENT

FROM RIPPING THE $17,000

-AH!

THE LUMBER, BROTHER!

AH, LEAVE IT TO FRED,

Narrator:
NEXT DAY, THE DAKOTA BOYS
RETURN TO THE MINE SITE

TO PREPARE FOR
THEIR FIRST DIVE.

Carlos: THINGS ARE COMING
TOGETHER RIGHT NOW,

GOT OUR DREDGE
IN THE WATER.

I'D WANT TO [BLEEP] DIVE, DUDE.
[BLEEP] DANG.

I CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK
IN THE WATER.

I'M SERIOUS.

-LOOK AT THIS, HUH? LOOK AT IT!
-YEP.

Paul:
IT'S NEVER BEEN THIS CLEAR.

THAT IS THE BEST THAT'S EVER
GOING TO LOOK RIGHT THERE.

Dustin: MAKE NO MISTAKE,
I AM IN A HURRY,

BUT THAT IS THE ONE ROCK,
I THINK, THAT IS DANGEROUS.

GOT TO MOVE THE DEATH ROCK
BEFORE WE GET IN THE WATER.

WE'RE GOING TO PUT
THIS WINCH UP HERE

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING
TO MOVE A ROCK.

HOLD ON.
HOLD ON.

-ALL RIGHT.
-JUST HOLD ON.

THE KILLER ROCK DOWN THERE,
THE SECOND ONE FROM THE WALL,

IF THE CURRENT COMES UP
WHILE YOU'RE DOWN IN THE HOLE

AND WE LEAVE IT THERE
AND IT MOVES JUST A LITTLE BIT

AND DECIDES TO JUST ROLL
INTO THE HOLE

WHERE YOU'RE AT, YOU'RE DEAD.

YOU'LL NEVER KNOW YOU WERE DEAD.

Narrator:
DUSTIN'S PLAN -- DRILL ANCHOR
BOLTS INTO THE 3-TON BOULDER

AND ATTACH A LINE

SO THEY CAN WINCH
THE KILLER ROCK

SAFELY OUT OF THEIR DIVE SITE.

WHOO!

MY ASS IS FREEZING, MAN!

FRICKING AMAZING, MAN.

WHOO-HOO!

AND YOU THOUGHT YOUR JOB
WAS HARD!

STUPID STUFF LIKE THIS?

PULL THE ROCK, MAN!

LET ME LOOK AT IT
BEFORE YOU PULL IT!

-HOLD ON!
-WAIT A MINUTE!

HOLD ON!

THE INSPECTOR IS HERE!

DAMN RIGHT!

ALL I COULD SEE
WAS SOMEBODY DRIVING

A BOLT 2 INCHES INTO THE ROCK.

IT AIN'T LONG ENOUGH.

Dustin:
HEY, JUST SMILE AND SAY,

"HEY, LOOK HOW [BLEEP]
GOOD THAT LOOKS."

Fred: NOT LONG ENOUGH!

NOT LONG [BLEEP]
ENOUGH, THAT LONG!

Dustin: DOESN'T MATTER!

WE'VE DONE THIS BEFORE.

Fred: I JUST SAW HIM PUT IN A
SHORT ANCHOR BOLT THERE,

BUT WHAT WE REALLY NEED
IS ABOUT A 12-INCH-LONG ANCHOR

INSTEAD OF ABOUT A COUPLE
OF 8-INCH ONES,

MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE
ON THE STRENGTH OF THOSE BOLTS.

WELL, FRED'S GOT HIS IDEAS,
AND I'VE GOT MINE.

WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT,
I'M IN CHARGE.

GO AHEAD AND PULL IT?
GO!

COME ON, BABY!
YOU CAN DO IT!

-COME ON, ROLL.
-YEAH! LOOK.

IT'S GOING TO SPIN.
-ROLL!

-DID IT MOVE?
-YEAH.

Dustin: HELL YEAH!

-KEEP GOING.
-COME ON.

A LITTLE BIT MORE.

-OH, [BLEEP].
-WHAT BROKE?

THE ANCHOR BOLT BUSTED.

-IT CAME OUT, HUH?
-YEP.

[ LAUGHS ] JUST PULLED THE DAMN
THING OUT OF THE ROCK.

HOLLERED AT THEM EARLIER,

BUT THERE AGAIN
THE YOUNG ONES DON'T LISTEN.

CHECK IT OUT, MAN.

THOSE ARE THE BOLTS
THAT BLEW OUT, MAN.

OH, GOOD [BLEEP].
YEAH.

I'VE USED THAT BEFORE,
AND IT'S BEEN JUST FINE,

BUT NOW IT'S TIME
TO STEP IT UP.

LOOK WHAT I GOT NOW.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST ONES
WE CAN USE FOR THIS SITUATION,

SO IT'S NO COMPARISON.

MAN, IF WE BLOW THOSE OUT,
WE'RE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE.

ROUND TWO!

THIS IS LITERALLY MAN
AGAINST ROCK!

WE'RE GOING TO WAR
WITH EACH OTHER.

HOLY [BLEEP] IS IT COLD.

DO YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE
PUTTING THE CHAIN ON?

YOU KNOW HOW TO FOLD A FLAG?

FOLDING THAT FLAG
