Ed:
[to Bobby] I'm glad we came here.

Bobby:
[offers Lewis a drink] Lewis?

Ed:
Lewis does not drink.

Bobby:
It's true Lewis, what you said. There's something in the woods and the water that we have lost in the city.

Lewis:
We didn't lose it. We sold it.

Bobby:
Well I'll say one thing for the system. System did produce the air mattress, or as is better known among we camping types, the instant broad. [The other three laugh and continue laughing.] And if you fellas will excuse me, I'm gonna go be mean to my air mattress. [He starts spraying bug spray on himself.] I do baptize thee, now in the name of modern technology - [Drew cheers.] How sweet. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. [He laughs. Lewis motions for them to be quiet, and they fall silent. Lewis goes into the woods and disappears.]

Ed:
Lewis?

Bobby:
Does he think he is Tarzan or what?

Ed:
He knows the woods though. He really does. He does.

Drew:
Not really. He learn 'em. He doesn't feel 'em. That's Lewis's problem. He wants to be one with nature, and he can't hack it.

Bobby:
That's a hell of a time to be telling us that! [He and Ed laugh. Drew motions to be quiet, and they fall silent. The three go in the direction that Lewis went while Lewis appears behind them. Bobby turns around and is surprised.] Jesus! Lewis, you scared the shit outta me!

Ed:
Oh, what was it, Lewis?

Lewis:
I don't know. I thought I heard something.

Bobby:
Something or someone?

Lewis:
I don't know. [He laughs and goes into his tent.]

Drew:
Good night, Lewis.

Lewis:
Good night, Drew.

Bobby:
I'm going to sleep.

Ed:
The night has fallen, and there's nothin' we can do about it.

Bobby:
I had my first wet dream in a sleeping bag.

Ed:
How was it?

Bobby:
Great. There was no repeatin' it.

Drew:
Never mind. [He and Bobby get in their tent.]

Ed:
[to Lewis] No matter what disaster that may occur in other parts of the world, or what petty little problems arise in Atlanta, no one can find us up here. Good night, Lewis.

Mountain Man:
What the hell you think you're doin'?

Ed:
Headin' down river. A little canoe trip, headin' for Aintry.

Mountain Man:
Aintry?

Bobby:
Sure, this river only runs one way, captain, haven't you heard?

Mountain Man:
You ain't never gonna get down to Ain-.

Ed:
Well, why not?

Mountain Man:
'Cause. This river don't go to Aintry. You done taken a wrong turn. See uh, this here river don't go nowhere near Aintry.

Bobby:
Where does it go, then?

Mountain Man:
Boy, you are a lost one, ain't ya?

Bobby:
Well, hell, I guess this river comes out somewhere, don't it? That's where we're goin'. Somewhere. Look, we don't want any trouble here.

Ed:
If you gentlemen have a still near here, hell, that's fine with us.

Bobby:
Why sure. We'd never tell anybody where it is. You know somethin', you're right, we're lost. We don't know where in the hell we are.

Toothless Man:
A still?

Bobby:
Right, yeah. You're makin' some whiskey up here. We'll buy some from ya, we could use it, couldn't we?

Mountain Man:
Do you know what you're talkin' about?

Ed:
We don't know what we're talkin' about, honestly we don't.

Mountain Man:
No, no. You said somethin' about makin' whiskey, right? Isn't that what you said?

Ed:
We don't know what you're doin' and we don't care. That's none of our business.

Mountain Man:
That's right. It's none of your god-damned business, right.

Ed:
We got quite a long journey ahead of us, gentlemen.

Toothless Man:
Hold it. You ain't goin' no damn wheres.

Ed:
This is ridiculous.

Toothless Man:
Hold it, or I'll blow your guts out all over these woods.

Ed:
Gentlemen, we can talk this thing over. What is it you require of us?

Mountain Man:
What we, uh, "re-quire" is that you get your god-damn asses up in them woods.

Mountain Man:
Now, let's you just drop them pants.

Bobby:
Drop?

Mountain Man:
Just take 'em right off.

Bobby:
I-I mean, what's this all about?

Toothless Man:
Don't say anything, just do it.

Mountain Man:
Just drop 'em, boy! [To Ed - at knifepoint] You ever had your balls cut off, you fuckin' ape?

Bobby:
Lord.

Mountain Man:
Look at there, that's sharp. I bet it'd shave a hair.

Toothless Man:
Why don't ya try it and see?

Bobby:
Lord, lord. Deliver us from all.

Toothless Man:
[To Bobby] Pull off that little ol' bitty shirt there, too. [To Mountain Man] Did he bleed?

Mountain Man:
He bled. [To Bobby] Them panties, take 'em off. [After attacking him] Get up, boy. Come on, get on up there.

Bobby:
No, no, no. Oh, no. No. Don't.

Mountain Man:
Hey boy. You look just like a hog.

Bobby:
Don't, don't.

Mountain Man:
Just like a hog. Come here, piggy, piggy, piggy. [Holding Bobby's nose as he straddles him from behind] Come on, piggy, come on, piggy, come on, piggy, give me a ride, a ride. Hey, boy. Get up and give me a ride.

Bobby:
All right.

Mountain Man:
Get up and give me a ride, boy.

Bobby:
All right. All right.

Mountain Man:
Get up! Get up there!

Bobby:
All right. [His underwear is pulled off] Oh no, no!

Mountain Man:
Looks like we got us a sow here, instead of a boar.

Bobby:
Don't. Don't.

Mountain Man:
What's the matter, boy? I bet you can squeal. I bet you can squeal like a pig. Let's squeal. Squeal now. Squeal. [Bobby's ear is pulled]

Bobby:
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Mountain Man:
Squeal. Squeal louder. Louder. Louder, louder. Louder! Louder! Louder! Get down now, boy. There, get them britches down. That's that. You can do better than that, boy. You can do better than that. Come on, squeal. Squeal.

Lewis:
What are we gonna do with him?

Drew:
There's not but one thing to do. Take the body down to Aintry. Turn it over to the Highway Patrol. Tell 'em what happened.

Lewis:
Tell 'em what exactly?

Drew:
Just what happened. This is justifiable homicide if anything is. They were sexually assaulting two members of our party at gunpoint. Like you said, there was nothin' else we could do.

Ed:
Is he alive?

Lewis:
Not now. Well, let's get our heads together. [To vengeful Bobby] Come on now, let's not do anything foolish. Does anybody know anything about the law?

Drew:
Look, I-I was on jury duty once. It wasn't a murder trial.

Lewis:
A murder trial? Well, I don't know the technical word for it, Drew, but I know this. You take this man down out of the mountains and turn him over to the Sheriff, there's gonna be a trial all right, a trial by jury.

Drew:
So what?

Lewis:
We killed a man, Drew. Shot him in the back - a mountain man, a cracker. It gives us somethin' to consider.

Drew:
All right, consider it, we're listenin'.

Lewis:
Shit, all these people are related. I'd be god-damned if I'm gonna come back up here and stand trial with this man's aunt and his uncle, maybe his momma and his daddy sittin' in the jury box. What do you think, Bobby? [Bobby rushes at the corpse, but is restrained] How about you, Ed?

Ed:
I don't know. I really don't know.

Drew:
Now you listen, Lewis. I don't know what you got in mind, but if you try to conceal this body, you're settin' yourself up for a murder charge. Now that much law I do know! This ain't one of your fuckin' games. You killed somebody. There he is!

Lewis:
I see him, Drew. That's right, I killed somebody. But you're wrong if you don't see this as a game...Dammit, we can get out of this thing without any questions asked. We get connected up with that body and the law, this thing gonna be hangin' over us the rest of our lives. We gotta get rid of that guy!...Anywhere, everywhere, nowhere.

Drew:
How do you know that other guy hasn't already gone for the police?

Lewis:
And what in the hell is he gonna tell 'em, Drew, what he did to Bobby?

Drew:
Now why couldn't he go get some other mountain men? Now why isn't he gonna do that? You look around you, Lewis. He could be out there anywhere, watchin' us right now. We ain't gonna be so god-damned hard to follow draggin' a corpse.

Lewis:
You let me worry about that, Drew. You let me take care of that. You know what's gonna be here? Right here? A lake - as far as you can see hundreds of feet deep. Hundreds of feet deep. Did you ever look out over a lake, think about something buried underneath it? Buried underneath it. Man, that's about as buried as you can get.

Drew:
Well, I am tellin' you, Lewis, I don't want any part of it.

Lewis:
Well, you are part of it!

Drew:
IT IS A MATTER OF THE LAW!

Lewis:
The law? Ha! The law?! What law?! Where's the law, Drew? Huh? You believe in democracy, don't ya?

Drew:
Yes, I do.

Lewis:
Well then, we'll take a vote. I'll stand by it and so will you.
