[man laughs] I'd like to show you how smart he is.

Let's have some fun and play Animal Quiz with Michael. Come on, Michael. [laughs]

You see what a good trainer I am. Oh, there he comes. [laughs]

I got the wrong end.

Goats are distinguished by a narrow head,

a bearded chin, in the male, a short upturned tail.

It's been called the poor man's cow

because it yields more milk for its size...

Jesus Christ! God...!

[laughs] It's all right.

Ostriches are pretty funny birds.

They can't fly, but they like to dance.

[laughs] And they don't really bury their heads in the sand,

but they do eat stones and shirts.

[man] Look at my dad. He was the king.

I mean, no matter what happened, I mean, he was as cool as a cucumber.

He never forgot a line.

And he never let anything ruffle him.

My dad was the king. No doubt.

And his TV show ruled the ratings.

What was that? Oh... [coughs]

Excuse me.

It was a wildlife show called Strange Wilderness.

Yeah... Oh, you remember that? Do you remember my dad?

Oh, cool.

Yeah, and then he died, and then I took over the show,

then it all went to hell and...

I mean, I'm nothing like my dad. Nothing at all.

I don't know. I don't know if it was, like, I wasn't bright enough

or I didn't work hard enough or...

I used to smoke a lot of dope so...

Um, no, I quit. Yeah, totally.

What happened to the show?

At first, it was great.

I had a really good crew. We were doing what we loved.

But then...

I don't know, things got a little strange.

We need animals on film. We need animals on film now!

Cooker! Look, I need the slinger tripod.

Break out the kreel. And I need a Mercury lens.

I'm gonna reverse out all the glass. Got it?


Uh, it was a... a nice chat.

Talk to me, Milas. How we doing?

[Milas] Fine. A couple of more minutes.

- This damn thing's stuck. - [bubbling]

Hang on, people. I am picking up an underwater bubbling sound.

I'm not sure what it is, but, I mean, it is bubbling furiously.

[Milas] Junior, knock it off.

All right, whatever it was, it's gone now.

- Uh, Pete? - Yeah.

Uh, this is my nephew, the kid I was telling you about, you know?

He's a little green, and, uh, he sure loves his herb,

but, uh, around you guys, when in Rome, huh?

All right, well, hey, any nephew of Milas's is a nephew of mine.

- [chuckles] - Hey, welcome aboard.

- Oh! No. - You OK?

I'm OK. It's not a good time for me right now.

So all right, get into frame. I think we're just about set.

Alrighty. Be about right here.

- Fred, you got the stuff? - Yeah.

- Ready? This is a bar napkin. - [Fred] Yeah.

This is it? Our entire voiceover for our show on bears

is written on a cocktail napkin?

Yeah, we wrote it last night at P.J. Mahoney's.

[stuttering] "Bears are large and brown."

All right. Come on. Not all bears are large.

How 'bout baby bears? Huh?

"Bears derive their name from a football team in Chicago."

No. It's the other way around.

Jesus Christ, Fred, come on. [sighs]

"It is estimated that bears kill over two million salmon a year.

Attacks by salmon on bears are much more rare."

That's gotta be true, right? All right, let's go with that one.

Let's get me standing here. And on my count.

Four, three, two, one, zero.

- And I'm talking now. - [beeps]

- The bear is a fierce animal... - [bubbling]

[Fred] I hear that weird bubbling sound again.

- It's not bubbling. - [Milas] Junior, I said knock it off.

OK, ready? Keep rolling. Three, two, one, go.

- [bubbling] - Yes, the bear is a fierce animal,

much more fierce than we know.

It is estimated that bears kill over two mill...

[Fred] We got fog rolling in, man.

It's not fog. Milas, can you help me out here?

[Milas] For God's sake, Junior, just set the bong down.

Thanks. All right, let's go.

And three, two, one, go.

Yes, the bear is a fierce animal, much more fierce than we know.

- [helicopter whirring] - It is estimated

that bears kill over two million salmon a year,

although attacks by salmon on bear are much more fucking rare!


[over loudspeaker] Gaulke, how many times have we told you,

you can't shoot without a permit!

You've got a $500 fine coming.

Now pack up your stuff and leave the forest.

By the way, this is fire season.

Smokey the Bear says, "Put out the bong!"

OK. OK, thank you!

OK, let's take it from... Let's see. [mumbles]

Uh, let's see, from... my time code says 84022.

We are cued up. Strange Wilderness, episode 21,

"Bear Elegance". We have sound speed now.

[Peter] Three, two, one, push the button, go.

Bears are a proud people,

although they're not people per se. They're animals.

Bears derived their name from a football team in Chicago.

Bears have been known to attack man,

although the fact is that fewer people have been killed by bears

than in all of World War I and World War II combined.

Brown bears loves fish... [clears throat]

Brown... Brown bears bloves f...

God, why am I having so much trouble saying "brown"?

[Fred] It's the two B's in "brown bears." Try something different.

[Peter] I got it. I'm ready. OK.

- Red bears love fish. - [woman] Pete, you're late for your meeting

- with Lawson down at K-PIP. - [Peter] Deb,

we're in the middle of a recording session,

so every fucking thing you say is going down on tape.

[Debra] Oh, right, like you guys ever care about that crap?

[Peter] OK, stop recording.

Turn that...

Turn off everything. Put away, put away everything.

OK, everything's shut off. Now, Deb, what's so important?

Your meeting with Lawson was supposed to start 20 minutes ago, you stupid asshole.


[man] Hey, fellas, I was bombed last night at P.J. Maloney's.

By the way, did you guys notice any sediment in that tequila?

'Cause some kind of pebble or rock or something clogged up my penis hole,

and my johnson swelled up like a fucking water balloon hooked up to a tea kettle.

- Whoo! Whoo! - [horn honking]

- Fuck you! You wanna fight?! - Mm. Here we are. Pull over.

[man] You guys better hustle up.

You're 45 minutes late for the meeting.

[phones ringing]

Great. I'll tell him you called. Thank you.

Good morning. We have an 11:00 meeting with Mr. Ed Lawson.

- Sorry we're a little late. - Dude, Sky Pierson.

- Hey, Pierson, TJ. - Well, as I live and breathe.

Peter Gaulke and his shadow, Fred Wolf.

No, no, not Pete and Fred. It's more like Neil and Bob.

- Or is that just what they do? - [laughter]

- High-five me. - Hey, so, what are you guys doing here?

We're talking to Lawson about bringing our wildlife show over here to K-PIP.

It's great 'cause Lawson's in there jumping through hoops trying to make the deal work.

It is so much fun to have your ass royally kissed.

- [TJ] Yeah, it is. - I mean, after all,

it's not your fault that our budget blows yours to kingdom come.

[laughs] And you must miss your father's skills, am I right?


Yeah, actually it's... Yeah, it's that time, you know...

You know what, we've got to go. Later, huh?

- Seriously, good luck, dude. - Hush!


You know, I know he was jiving us a little,

but, uh, Sky Pierson's so cool.

Oh, yeah, are you kidding me? He is the king of wildlife show hosts, man.

All right, come on, let's go see Lawson. This is it. Germans do it.

All right, let's cut to the chase.

The ratings for Strange Wilderness

have been dropping considerably for the past two years.

OK, now, when my dad had the show,

you aired him at 7:00 and we're on at 3am, so...

Pete, let me finish. I haven't even started yet.

OK? Let's take the crappy ratings aside.

Throw them aside. The network has taken so much flak

for the perceived irresponsibilities of your show.

I had my assistant put together some clips.

- Oh, fun. - Let me tell you something,

I am disturbed by what I'm seeing. OK?

[Peter] Many of these animals are... Whoa, something's about to go down here.

Oh, I can smell a good time on the horizon.

Oh, that's it. Slice me off a piece and serve it up hot.

- I'm next in line. - OK.

That... That's OK, right?

Sad. OK? What about this?

Hey! Stick around, because when we come back

we're gonna find us some pygmy people.

All right, all the littering aside,

how do you refer to the indigenous people, the natives, as pygmy people?!

- That's just wrong! - What?! No.

I... I like all people. [laughs]

It's Fred who's the racist.

You oughta hear what he says about the Chinee.

- Right? - What?

You are so not getting this, are you? Take a look.

[woman] Oh, my God! [screaming]

I mean, it's...

Luckily, we caught it on tape, so that man will be honored.

You wanted to honor the man by showing him being killed

by an alligator on your wildlife show?!

All right, what about this?

Jesus doesn't live here

- ♪ Anymore ♪ - [screaming]

A guy on fire at a peace rally.

Did you guys think of putting the cameras down and helping the guy out?

And what was that music playing? Some sort of Jesus music underneath?

Was that at the rally or did you add that? What was that?

- What about this? - [music plays]

Now, what the hell is that?

It's the African wilderness.

It's, uh, natives doing a war dance.

- That's not Africa. - Right, well, not totally. [chuckles]

See, um, a lot of the women of the bush,

they're not really that good-looking.

So we got these girls instead. They're from Long Beach.

Stop talking. Please.

Since your dad died, the quality of the show has gone downhill.

And now with the ratings in the toilet, there's no reason to keep the show on the air.

None. Unless something big happens, I have no idea.

OK, wait. Now, something big. Now, what do you mean by big?

Well, why are we even discussing it? Nothing big is going to happen.

The show sucks. And I am officially, right now,

telling you that two weeks from now, the show is canceled.

I've given you notice. Thanks for coming in.

All right. [sighs] Think.

We gotta think. OK, we're not canceled yet.

Cooker, go get us a few quarts of coffee. This is gonna be a long night.

Now, may I interject for a second, and say no, politely.

What I'm trying to say is that you drank coffee yesterday.

You're gonna drink coffee tomorrey.

The point is that I'm not some great white stallion,

sprinting from shantytown to shantytown,

crushing up java beans just to bring them around to my friends.

Come on, we gotta think. We gotta come up with some big idea

that's gonna keep us on the air. Come on.

Hey, Junior, how 'bout you, fresh blood? You got any ideas?

- Yoo-hoo! Hey! - [snoring]

- [Milas] Hey. Hey. - Hey! Sh... [gasps]

- [yelps] - What? Sorry.

- Dude, what is on your eyes? - Oh, man.

Oh, yeah. This is so weird. Um...

It, like, looks like I have eyeballs or whatever. Uh...

I smoked some weed the other ni... Oh, shit, wait, hold on.

I smoked some weed the other night, and I think the shit was laced

because I went out right away and got these tattoos on my eyelids

to make it look like when I was sleeping that people would think that I was awake.

Pete, you know what might drive up the ratings? What about a celebrity host?

Yeah. That would be great.

We could get someone cool, like Jack Nicholson.

Oh, yeah. I know where he lives up in the Hollywood Hills.

I know some guys who used to dump over his garbage cans, like in a jealous rage.

- You remember Fat Johnny? - Powers.

- Yeah, you know Powers. - Yeah. He's a great guy.

[Junior] They used to shower together and shit.

Well, not shower, but they were friends with benefits.

- No. [laughs] No... - [Junior] And they spent...

- Hey, how about...? - Goddamn, I know one thing.

That fat bastard can eat, man. Fuck, yeah.

I saw him eat a cat once. It was crazy.

I mean, this poor cat didn't know what was happening. [laughs, groans]

Or maybe it was a lobster he ate.

- Pete. - What?

- Bill Calhoun stopped by. - Oh, great.

Tell him I'll be right there. All right, this is good.

Let's keep it up. Keep thinking.

Who the fuck is Jack Nocknuhson?

- Hey, Bill. - Oh, Pete. How you doing?

Hey. Caught you reminiscing, huh?

Yeah. I can't believe how young I look in that photo.

[Peter] Yeah, what is that, 15, 20 years?

More than that. Let me tell you something.

- Time flies. - Yeah.

So, what brings you down from the mountain, Bill?


That's Bigfoot.

- Oh, my God. - Yeah.

- Hey, where did you get these? - Ecuador.

I know where he's hiding. Got the map at my cabin.

This is great! OK, we're gonna go to your cabin,

get the map, we'll go find Bigfoot.

You saved Strange Wilderness.

Not quite so fast on that.

Pete, you know I loved your daddy like a brother,

but Pierson is willing to give me $1,000 for the map.

- A thousand dollars? - Look, I need the money.

Oh, Bill! You can't sell the map to Pierson.

I don't know where I'm gonna find $1,000. Jeez!

What if...?

Hey, wait. I got something better than $1,000.

Yeah. I'll give you a piece of my show!

- Well, no, no. No, no, no. I need the money kind of fast. - [Peter laughing]

All about net points. You're gonna make a fortune.

- Net? - Yep. Look, ten percent

against the per diem back-end accrued cost,

let's see, times the employee overhead at 525,

- finder's fee. - [TV switching channels]

Pete, isn't that the TV remote?

Bill, don't change the subject!

The point is you're gonna get ten percent,

which comes out to be a fortune!

I wouldn't be doing this if I wasn't strapped for cash!

I gotta have 1,000 bucks, or I gotta go to Pierson.

All right. All right. I'll get the money.

I'll have it in a week. I'll see you at your cabin by the 15th.

- By God, you got a deal. - All right.

I'm glad this is going to you and not that Pierson. [chuckles]

- Damn. These are great. - Yeah.

- And Bill knows where this is? - Yeah, South America.

This is exactly what we needed.

OK? This is gonna be the biggest show ever.

Here's the plan. OK, we're gonna shoot five wildlife shows

on the way down, then we're gonna pay it off with the first ever footage

of the legendary Bigfoot.

Pete, I think you just saved the show, you son of a gun.

[laughs] Your dad'd be proud of you, boy.

- [laughs] - Yeah, but doggone it,

I don't think I'm gonna make the big run, I just can't.

- What? - But numbnuts here'll run your camera for you.

I understand. We're gonna miss you.

I'll miss you too. Now, listen, what about that $1,000

- that Bill wants for these? - All right.

I need everyone to go home,

scrape up as much cash as you can find, all right?

Think of this as an investment in your future.

If this works, we all work.

And, people, this is gonna work.

- [all] Yeah! - Whoo!

Hey, Debbie! Debbie!

I need you to set up interviews for an animal handler, stat!

And, uh, for the last seven years,

I've worked at an auto body shop,

so I don't really have any experience in your field, per se.

Never really handled animals before.

But I have handled other things, and...

I don't know, I just really need a job, so...

- Can we think about it? - Yeah. And not very hard?

You really needing a job is depressing.

You smell of desperation. I mean, who wants to be around that?

Well, I wouldn't smell like desperation if I had the job, right? [laughs]

Well, if you want, we could hire you, fire you,

push you into a mud puddle,

and then you can keep this whole sad sack train chugging along.

Jesus, man, a month on the road with this guy,

I'd shove an exhaust pipe through my fucking heart.

Why don't you, uh, go make a blues album?

[Peter] Yeah, you could call it I'm a Poor Little Sad Sack.

- [Fred laughs] - No job.

Next! Debbie!

I don't want the job. Thank you, but no, thanks.

- Next applicant! - No, thank you.

Maybe you can offer the job to a crazy person.

- You'll have better luck. - Next!

You guys are out of your fucking minds.

Yeah. Yeah. Run back to junior high. It'll be great.

Debbie! Debbie!

- You're off the chart nuts! - Next!

- You're insane! - Next!

- And rude! - Debbie!

- Debbie! - Next!

Well, welcome aboard, Whitaker. We're gonna have a great trip.

Thanks for hiring me, guys. I really appreciate it.

I just want you to know I'm gonna apply myself and do the best I can

to be the best animal handler you ever had.

I don't know a lot about animals, but I'm gonna learn, I'm gonna read.

I feel like I got a handle on, you know, what the best way to be an animal...

- Good job. - Keep it up.

So... OK, take care now.

Well, hello. So, Cheryl, I'm just...

...glad you could join us. This is Cheryl, Fred.

- Hi. - Cheryl's friends with Cousin Bob.

Travel agent. Yeah. She's gonna...

I'm sorry, Bob did not tell me that you were so damn...

- Sorry? - Nothing.

OK. Um...

OK, the plan is, all right,

is to head towards the coast through the Mojave,

and then we'll just make a quick detour to the Tribily Mountains

to Bill Calhoun's cabin, grab the map and cross the border.

Great. Good job, Cheryl. Gotta go. Keep on keeping on.

- [Fred] Oh, yeah. - OK.

You know, she seems nice. I really like her.

Oh, man, halfway through this trip, she'll fall for me.

- I'll be laying some serious pipe. - Oh, yeah!

- Hi, what's up?! - I just felt like I should assure you,

I get it. I mean, you guys have been together for a really, really long time.

You're going into the wilderness.

The last thing you need is a woman in your midst

to short-circuit the whole process.

Debbie the downer, right? "Oh, no, can't talk amongst ourselves.

Here she comes." You know? I'm not gonna bring that to the table, OK?

Like the whole "laying pipe" thing? It's funny. It really is funny.

You know, I get it, I know how that works.

Make an announcement like that, friends laugh,

think you're into girls, you make it through another day.

But look, I mean, if you wanna fight the fight and keep on keeping on,

like the gay kids like to say, well, that's your own prerogative.

- [phone rings] - Oh. Sorry, I think it's the...

Yep, it's the liaison from Mexico. [speaks Spanish]

- What just happened? - Shit, I don't know.

I'm no longer so sure about that laying the pipe thing, though.

Cooker, I thought I told you to put this stuff in the RV.

Oh, man, it's already in there.

I'm looking right at it! It's not in the RV!

- Oh, this stuff? - Yeah.

Oh, no, yeah, this stuff's not in the RV yet.

What? Goddamn it.

Five minutes to get from the fu...

I got ten more feet to get in the RV, anybody wanna say something?

- [Junior] All right. Hey... - Sorry. Hi.

- Hi. I forgot what I was gonna say. - OK.

Pete. This oil looks a little thick. Maybe I should add some water.

Yo, I'm way ahead of you morons.

I'm gonna sneak up on these fucking bad boys

and get you guys angles that'll blow you away.

[imitating seals]

[seal bark]

OK, great, let's go.

[Peter] En route to Bill Calhoun's cabin,

we had time to meet up with some of nature's most awesome creatures,

Mr. Sea Lion.

No matter how many sea lions are eaten each year by sharks,

it never seems like enough.

When a shark appears in the area,

sea lions will leave the water immediately.

Luckily, there are no tigers on shore waiting for him,

or he wouldn't know what the fuck to do.

A sea lion's main diet is fish,

of which there are many different species.

Here we see the puffer fish.

Our best guess is that this fish inflates

by sucking its balls into its stomach.

This odd-looking fish is called a squiggly.

[Junior] Can I just say one thing?

[Peter] Dude, give me the fucking...

Give me the fucking microphone.

[Junior] Why is that pink thong running so fast?

[Peter] God! Dude, this

is a show about sea lions, goddamn it.

But to get closer to these remarkable creatures,

we put our driver, Danny Gutierrez, in a sea lion costume.

Unfortunately, after only a few seconds,

- Danny was attacked by a shark. - [shouting]

Oh, fuck! Oh, no, no, no! Leave him alone!

No, get off him, he's my friend! Please stop it!

[Fred] Wow. I'm just blown away by how violent that was.

Those razor sharp teeth were as... sharp as razors.

[sobbing] It was just so gruesome, you know?

All the thrashing and all the...

- And all the blood. - It's OK. It's OK.

Yeah. No, he's... it's gonna be OK.

I mean, these things happen. I mean, not all the time, but still.

Cheryl, just thank you for being my friend.

- Thanks. Ah! - [buzzing]

- Ah! - [laughing]

You are such an asshole!

- Oh! - Oh, shit, two funny things at once.

I was trying to help you feel better.

Then you hit me in the head. Now there's a bump on my head.

It looks like a dinosaur egg. If that dinosaur hatches,

people are gonna think I'm some sort of prehistoric gentleman bird.

And how the fuck do you think that makes me f...

It's fine. It's fine. I'll get over it.

Hey, guys, look at that bug over there.

Oh, yeah. Hey, uh, break out the equipment.

As long as we're here, we might as well roll some footage, right? Come on.

Junior, get over here.

Look at this. This is great. Get in here, right now.

Get that right there. Wait, I got a noise. Hold on.

- [horn honks] - Go ahead.

- [honking] - Excuse me!

Gentlemen. Hi. We're trying to do a shoot here

and we were just wondering if you could maybe stop honking the horn until we're finished?

[speaks Spanish] I need $100.

- [laughing] - Are you trying to blackmail us?

[Cheryl speaks Spanish] How are you?

- [speaks Spanish] - [honks]

I'll stop honking for $100, OK?

Let me handle this. I speak the language of their people.

[speaks Spanish] [high-pitched] Excuse me.

- [honking] - [laughing]

Let me try a different approach.

- [shouting] - No, no, no, no! Slow it down, brother. Let's talk about it.

I ain't gonna talk, I'm gonna punch!

No, you don't wanna do that, that's gonna cause trouble.

Who, Super-Mario-looking motherfucker?!

For you, and let me explain why.

'Cause see, you're a big, powerful man.

- That's true, homes. - Actually, you're so powerful,

and he's such a pussy, your punch is probably gonna kill him.

And then what? They're gonna fry you, homes.

All right. Well, what about the scratch he put on my front hood?

I didn't go near your front hood, man.

Yeah, you did. It's right there. Take a look, pussy.

- Yeah, look at it, pussy! - Fuck you, Fred!

Hey, you too, homes. Take a look.

Lean closer, both of you. Look, closer. You see it?

I don't see any scratches.

You just got knocked the fuck out!

- Oh, my God. - Hello.

We would like to see a dentist, please.

Well, have a seat, and the dentist will be able to see you in about an hour.

I'm sorry. Did you just say,

"Have a seat and the dentist will be able to see you in about an hour"?

There are a couple of people in front of you. Would you like a magazine?

- I'll take a Batman magazine. - Dude, that's a comic book.

She said magazine. I'm sorry about that.

Um, I'll have a Penthouse.

We don't have Penthouse magazine, sir.

I guess we'll wait.

- Fred? - Yeah?

- Go color. - All right.

No magazines.

A whole hour to kill.

Hello there.

- [Peter grunts] - You've got to be kidding me.

[Peter] All right, everybody, listen up.

We're flat busted. We're broke.


Two days on the road and we're already fucked.

Hey! Guys! Check this shit out.

Boosted some nitrous from the dentist's office. It was so awesome.

I grabbed it, and they were like, "What are you doing?"

And I go, "It's cool, man. I'm a dentist. I need to use this shit."

Do you know what this is worth on the street?

This is like $1,000.

- [Cheryl] Oh, my God. - [Junior] I know.

You've got to put that back, OK? Fuck!

- [laughing] - We cannot afford to get busted stealing nitrous.

OK. So most of us think that we should keep the nitrous,

sell it so we can finance the entire trip, save Strange Wilderness.

And deep down inside so does Cheryl, so it's unanimous.

Let's do it! This is gonna work out!

[Cooker] We're broke!

[rock music plays]

Yeah, this is it. It's Bill's place.

Where in the hell have you guys been? You're three days late.

Wipe your feet.

Whoa, Bill. Going a little nuts up here?

Somebody's ready for Armageddon.

Look, I tried calling you guys. I sold the map.

- What?! You sold it?! - Well, I had to, to Pierson.

- [both] Pierson?! - [Peter] Oh, my God.

Why'd you do it? We had a deal!

You're three days late. I didn't think you were coming.

And like I told you back in the office, I needed the money.

So he's halfway to finding Bigfoot by now.

- Yeah. - Great! I can't believe it.

Bill, what did you need the money so bad for?

Lithium and Darvon, Pete. Depression eats at me day and night.

I live in a world of paranoia, as you can tell.

[sighs] I'm sorry, Pete.

It's OK, Bill. It's OK.

Hey, wait a minute.

Hold on a second.

I think I know a way

to make my paranoia pay off for you guys.

Go change clothes and come back. I got something to show you. [laughs]

- [Peter] OK. - [Bill] Yeah, this is gonna work out, I hope.

Here's the deal. I sold Pierson the map, fair and square, right?

He's got a three-day head start, he's got no complaints.

So nobody can say I can't give you guys a copy of the map, now is there? [laughs]

I'm gonna find you one. See, at one point or another during the day,

they were walking around reading the map under these security cameras.

All I gotta do is find it and zoom in on it.

- Hey, did you see that? - What?

[Bill] That's just me saying goodbye to the wife

'fore I went out hunting.

- Back that up. - OK.

- What the hell is that?? - Huh?

What the hell is she doing?


That's Pierson, and he's going into my bedroom.

[groaning] Aw, God.

- [sobbing] - Bill.

Oh, work it.

Oh, slice me off a piece of that. I got a sweet tooth.

Oh, my God, I'll ask for second helpings on that and still lick the plate...

- Pierson is an asshole! - All right, all bets are off.

I'm gonna find you that map, and you're gonna find Bigfoot

before that degenerate pervert bastard does.

- Yeah, we are. - [Bill] Come on, come on.

Walk to the camera like a good little puppet now. All right, now.

Go to camera three. [chuckles]

There it is. There it is.

Now, all I gotta do is zoom in on it and...! Pierson may have the map and a three-days' head start,

- but that won't be enough. - Thanks.

'Cause now you have the map and I'm gonna give you a little something extra.

- His name is Gus Hayden. - You are shitting me.

- You know Bigfoot's name? - Uh, no, no, Pete. Heh.

This tracker, his name is Gus Hayden.

Now, Gus and I were in Vietnam together.

He is the best that ever lived, he's practically supernatural.

Now, if anybody can help you find Bigfoot before these assholes,

it's Gus Hayden.

Now, he normally charges 3,000 bucks,

but I'm gonna get him to do it for 500.

Five hundred. Uh...

We're at...

- ...14 bucks. - What?

It's a long story, but, yeah, we're broke, Bill.

Well, so am I, or I'd loan you the money.

'Cause now you not only gotta find Bigfoot to save your show,

you gotta find Bigfoot to screw over Pierson.

I don't know how you gonna raise that cash, but you gotta promise me one thing:

When you catch up to Pierson, you give him a shot square in the face for me.

Shit, man. We can't raise 500 bucks.

Sounds like we're screwed.

That's great. Trip's over before it even began.

Hey, Pete. I got some great beaver footage.

- That's great. - Yeah.

I gotta go take a leak. Look, we'll go into town,

and, I don't know, do something.

- [Junior] What's going on? - Money problems.


[birds chirping]

Oh, hi there, little guys.

I didn't see you there.

[laughs] Almost got you, huh?

- Hey, where's Mama Turkey? - [gobbling]

[screaming] Oh, my God!

Oh, my God! Oh!

Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

Oh, my God!

Oh, my God!

[moaning] Look out!


[doctor] It's surprising.

Its gag reflexes should have kicked in by now.

Nurse, I want you to massage the neck of the turkey,

and let's see if we can relax this little fella.

- Yes, doctor. - [Pete] Junior, turn off the camera.

- [Junior] Get another angle. - [nurse] Relax.

- [Pete moaning] - [Junior] Oh, nice.

You got mad, good medical skills.

[nurse] Relax, Mr. Turkey. Relax.

- Relax. - Cup the beak.

- [laughing] - I spit in my hand when I do that.

Oh, Christ. You've got to be kidding me.

- Doctor, he has an erection. - [laughing]

You need to stifle your sexual response.

You're only tightening yourself inside its neck.

Doc, the nurse is fucking hot.

Can somebody else do me? Fred?

- Fuck that, dude. - Whitaker?

- Whitaker what? - You're the animal handler, man.

Bullshit. I was a car mechanic last week, man.

Want me to change the spark plugs, I'll do that,

- but I'm not gonna handle you. - I think a shot of Demerol

- oughta relax it. - [screaming]

- That went right into my dick! - Well, that really shouldn't have happened. Sorry.

Well, now that the Demerol's probably coursing through your system,

it could complicate things.

Here's an idea. Mr. Gaulke, can you urinate?

That might do it. It might stimulate the turkey's gag reflex.

You want him to piss that turkey off his hog?

- [laughter] - I mean, put yourself in the turkey's position...

Doctor, I believe that this young turkey hasn't yet come out of the closet.

So if we could take a snapshot of it getting gay with Peter here,

we could maybe threaten to send it to his father.

And it'll be like, "No, don't tell my dad." And he'll stop blowing Peter.

- [turkey moaning] - Or we could chop his fucking head off.

- [Cheryl clears throat] - Holy hell! He did!

He found our turkey! We've been searching for her for three months.

How in the hell did she get caught up in this position?

Yeah, it's Maggie, all right.

You guys can have her back right after we chop her head off.

No, you can't kill it.

This bird is part of a government study. We want her back.

Look, there is a $5,000 reward for her alive.

$5,000? Whoa, hey! Doc, no. Hold on a second.

Gentlemen. Now that we have the map,

and we're gonna get five grand for this stupid bird here,

we can go get Gus Hayden the tracker.

Come on, everyone, jump in. Let's yank this sucker right off.

- Did you just say yank?! - Yes, we did.

I'm gonna be gentle, but firm.

One, two, three.


[♪ The Bossmen: On the Road]

I walked a million miles since Sunday

Still I got no place to go

But I hope to sit myself down someday

And find a place to call my home

I've been on the road

Oh, yeah Much too long

Believe me, baby Much too long

[speaking Spanish]

Fucking Federales, dude. I got weed on me.

I'll meet you on the other side.

Don't worry, I'll take care of this.

Hold on. Back up here.

[high-pitched] Excuse me.

Eh, let us into Mexico, please?

OK, so thank you! I guess I checked out then. Huh?

Oh! Look at that! I guess our RV is tore up.

We'll have to take a plane the rest of the way.

- Oh, well. Come on, let's go. - What happened in there?

Nothing. Really cool people. So come on, let's book.

[Whitaker] Is everything OK? You look really pale.

Yeah. That's because I wear sunblock, you ass. OK?

So come on, let's grab that airplane and get out of here.

- What happened in that room? - Drop it.

- Drop what? - OK, look, they h...

Oh, come on! I come in peace, brother. Come on.

You guys, the plane's boarding. Come on.

Hey, guys, I need to tell you something.

What, you're quitting? Come on, no, it's...

No, no, I'm not quitting. It's actually the opposite.

I wanted to thank you guys. I took this job 'cause I needed it,

but I also took it for other reasons.

You know, I figured a trip into the jungle would be a kind of a forced sobriety for me,

and that's something I really need in my life.

My name's Bill W., and I'm an alcoholic.

- Hey, Bill. - Hi, Bill.

Because of that, I've never really fit in anywhere, you know?

I want to tell you guys, couple days ago I took my last drink.

And then I did yesterday, and, well, God willing,

this'll really be the last one.

We're going to the jungle, and I got some tough times ahead of me.

But you guys have been really great to me.

And I just want to say that you've really made me part of your family,

- and I wanna say thank you for that. - That's so sweet.

- Thank you. - Whitaker, that's some of the finest words

I've ever heard in my life.

And just hearing them makes me feel like I'm a better person.

So fuck it, man, take a bow.

- Oh! - [laughing]

He was like, "I'm... I'm an alcoholic."

[laughing] I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

[blows whistle]

[singing in Spanish]

- Strange Wilderness? - That's us.

I'm Pete, and this is the rest of them.

Uh, hi, I'm Cheryl. It is so nice to meet you.

Good to meet you. Yeah, Bill told me what Pierson did to his wife.

Bill's a good man, shouldn't have happened to him.

He's upset. That's why he asked me to get you to Gus Hayden.

- That's great. Great. - Now for the bad news.

Pierson's got about a three-day jump on you.

- [Cheryl] Oh, no. - Don't worry. We'll find him.

We'll go up to Gus's, and we'll head out from there and make up for lost time.

- [Cheryl] All right. - My name's Dick.

- Dick what? - Just Dick.

- Dick? - Dick.

- [Fred] Like Cher, but Dick? - [snickering]

- Dick. - [laughing]

He's fucking... Who is this?

Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick.

- Hey... - [laughing]

Gotta have more name than that, Dick.

Nope. Just Dick.

You say Dick, I come running.


You come where?

You like your name? You like Dick?

Do you ever let your dog lick your name?

[Junior] Yeah, do you like it?

Is your name Dick?

I don't wanna get started off on the wrong foot with you guys.

Does your name ever shrink if you go in cold water?

Snicker one more time, I'll kick your balls up in your fucking neck.

- Check. - Ten-four.

- Copy that. - Our trail's

- about 23 clicks west of here. - Right.

[Junior] Your name get hard in the morning?

Shut the fuck up.

[Peter] On our way to hook up with legendary tracker Gus Hayden,

we encountered many jungle animals,

including our furry relative, the monkey.

Monkeys make up over 80 percent of the world's monkey population.

Hundreds of ants are eaten each year by monkeys.

Researchers believe that these numbers would be far less

if ants were the same size or bigger than monkeys.

[laughs] Wow, look at that. Those balls are sensational.

To a lion, these balls are called a "sac lunch."

Over here, we spot some South American gazelles.

This gazelle is eating a flower.

This lion is eating the gazelle.

But he'll probably spit out the flower.

These giraffes can't quit each other.

I think it would be a good idea to tie your brand-new jeans to their heads.

That way, your jeans would get that distressed look.

These birds are saying howdy to the zebra.

Actually, they're not saying howdy, they're eating the shit out of him.

If we held a microphone up to the zebra and he could talk like,

you know, Mister Ed or something,

it would probably sound something like this:

[moaning] "Oh, my God. Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

One of you just shove your beak up my ass?"

[rock music plays]

All right. We'll walk from here. All right, let's go, chop-chop.

It's about three clicks that way.

Stay on the trail. Follow me. Let's go. Let's go!

Saw a gypsy woman heading my way

She plugged in her crystal ball and started to say

Answered all your questions about the sun and moon

I'm gonna clear that up for you You're gonna find out soon

All right, you're about to meet the world's greatest tracker, Gus Hayden.

The thought occurred to me Am I awake? ♪

I can't really say for sure But that's the chance you take

Welcome to paradise.

I hear we're gonna have a little fun.

I shoved my knife through the top of his skull into his brain.

I grabbed my hand grenade, pushed that into his headhole.

And I shoved him back down into the tunnel and ran like hell.

Hey, Gus. That was a great Vietnam story.

But I think, you wanna let go of Fred there?

I think you're close to killing him.

Oh, sorry, I forgot about you there, partner.

- [coughing] - Anyway, the little gook

bit me and that's how I got this scar right here on this thumb.

- Cool. - So, Gus, tell us, what are we in store for tomorrow?

We'll break camp at 0600. I want you all to understand

that when we head into the Coconga Wilderness,

we'll be going into a bad, dark place

where death is about as routine as a change of pants.

Well, uh, this crew here?

We've been through some pretty hairy adventures of our own.

And I know you got that little scar there on your thumb,

but we've gotten a few scars over the years ourselves.

- Isn't that right, Fred? - Oh, yeah, yeah. I mean, look at this one.

Eight years old. Fell off my bike.

- [Pete whistles] - [Junior] Shit.

Check out this guy. See that?

I was doing some Bondo work on a '67 Pontiac Sky Chief,

and I was drunk, as usual, and caught this on the hood ornament.


But... Hey, two days sober today, guys.

- [cheering] - Thank you.

- Thank you very much. - Well, I don't have any scars,

but I have this really great birthmark.


You see this right here? Dog bit me when I was a kid.

I was blowing in his face, and he nipped...

[Gus] Well, now. You're talking scars, I got one for you.

About ten years ago I was scouting out a location

for a mining company in the Amazon,

when I was ambushed by a tribe of Aloha pygmies.

They tied me to a post and did to me what they do to all white men.

- [zipper unzips] - Whoa, whoa!

They cut my scrotum with a sharp stick, then they ran away.

My testicles unraveled down to the ground.

I scooped up my testicles from out of the dirt,

rolled them up, shoved them back into my sac,

and then sewed it shut myself.


Looks like a quilt. A ball quilt.

OK, well... I'd love to sit here

and swap some more scar stories,

but I'm all out. I'm tired.

Yeah, you know what? Yeah, yeah.

I'm gonna saw some logs, myself.

[all talking]

[Junior] Just had one of the worst nightmares ever.

- Pete. - Ah!

- Hey! Ow! Hey! - What?

Dude, that tracker guy left, and Cheryl ran off with him.

Cheryl? Cheryl!

What, she ran off with Gus Hayden?!

She's gone, he's gone and all our shit's gone!

Hey! You're probably in on it!

No! He left me just as stranded as you all.

He took my bunker Jeep. We got nothing!

Ah, shit! Why would Cheryl do this to us?!

No, no. I saw her eyeing that fucking psycho across the campfire last night.

Shit! Shit! God!

Shit! Shit!

God! All right, calm down!

Everybody, just pull yourself together!

Bill, I need you to take an inventory of everything that's left, OK? Go, now.

Uh, OK. We got one sleeping bag,

so I think we're pretty much fucked.

Uh, no, I think we're gonna be OK. I think we're great.

- Let's go find Bigfoot. - What aren't you hearing? He took the map!

We can't find Bigfoot without a map!

Yeah, but we can't give up, OK?! We can't!

'Cause my dad wouldn't give up. You know that, you knew him.

I mean, he'd always make it work out.

And I'm just like my dad!

All right. OK.

I'll lead you through the jungle. I'm going as far as Temescal.

- But after that, you're on your own. - OK.

That jungle is thick.

I don't think anybody's ever even been in there.

You know, you should quit now, while you're alive.

Nope. Not on my watch.

Uh, guys? I don't wanna die.

For the first time in 11 years, I'm seeing the world through sober eyes,

and it's exhilarating.

See, I have so much to live for right now.

I want to find a nice girl and settle down and have kids

and dance with them in the moonlight and everything.

I want to do it all, you know?

Fucking beautiful. Take a bow, man.

- Oh! - [buzzing]

- [laughing] - He was like,

"I'm wearing a blue shirt, and I'm sad in my heart."

I didn't know you were gonna do that!

OK! Cooker! You need to...

Is that a thong you're wearing?

- What the fuck'd you say?! - Do you have a thong on?

[laughs] Yeah, I'm wearing a thong.

I'll get the sleeping bag.

Dick, there any snakes in this shit or what?

Don't worry about fucking snakes.

Fuck you, dude.

Oh, shit, a porcupine.

[thunder rumbles]

Hey! Hey!

I think it stopped.

I think... I think it stopped.

- This is insane. - No.

It's gonna be OK, I think. It's gonna be OK.

Come on, let's just keep moving. It'll be OK.


- What was that? - Just keep going. It's gonna be fine.



- Aw, come on. - Hey, come on!

[Dick] It's just a monkey.

- Jesus. - [moaning]

- [roaring] - [screams]

- You guys! - [Junior] Oh, shit!

I have been tracking you for hours.

Why did you leave me back there?

Well, we thought you ran off with Gus Hayden.

You really think I'd do that?

- Yeah. - Gross.

[scoffs] I'd wanna fuck even you guys before I'd wanna fuck him.

- Hey. - All right.

I woke up and he was stealing all our stuff,

so I pretended like I wanted to go with him,

and I convinced him to give me...

- ...this. - [all] Ooh!

- The map. - You convinced him?

- What'd you have to do? - Just a little something. OK?

I, um, took one for the team.

I... I have a map.

- Me, too. I got a map. - I got a bunch of maps, man.

I have an atlas.

I have some old Civil War maps that are worth quite a bit.

I have a map of the moon. It's like it... you can feel it.

I got a whole map store. Maps everywhere.

[Fred] If we get back to the RV, I got a Thomas Guide. I got a hundred pages of maps.

- Come here, you guys! - Ah!

- Just kidding. I don't have a map. - [laughing]

I'll tell you, I will be damned. I will just be damned.

You know, with that map and my jungle survival skills,

just might be able to help you find Bigfoot after all.

- Yeah! - [chanting] Dick! Dick!

- We love Dick! - Yes, we are. Yes, we are.

First, though, we gotta cross the Mohate River.

[indistinct chatter]

Crossing with Dick!

[Dick] We're almost there.

Just straight that way. You're doing great, Fred.

- [Fred] Thank you. - [Dick] You're doing great.

- I'm proud of you. - Hey, Dick. I'm proud of you in turn.

[Dick] You're the best. You're the best.

Now, I know a secret quick way through this jungle,

and we can get to the rocky cliffs and maybe cut off Pierson.

Now, here's what you're gonna do.

What the...? Oh, God!

- Ah! - [all screaming]

Don't come in here! No! Stay out!

Oh, Dick!

Here's another one of those piranha bastards.

Fucking eat all these fucking stupid fish.

We were gonna make it. And then these bastards ate Dick!

How's it feel to get eaten, fish fuckers?!

- Yeah! - How's it feel to get eaten?!

Stupid... Stupid fish!

You think we'd just let you get away with eating Dick,

you sons-of-bitches, pieces of river trash!

- Fuck you! Fuck you! - [laughing]

Hey, wait a minute.

These are the fish that ate Dick, right?

[all] Yeah!

All right, just go with me here.

If Dick is in the fishes and we're eating the fishes,

doesn't that mean we're eating Dick?

- What the fuck?! - [all shouting]

- It's gonna be OK! Come on! - No!

Not one single thing has gone our way!

And I guarantee you Pierson found Bigfoot's cave days ago.

Come on, Fred! Don't be so negative, OK?

Our luck is gonna change, I can feel it. Huh?

Oh, my God. You guys have to come with me.

I think I found something.

- It's Pierson's team. - Holy crap.

Fred, get over here, Fred.

Mr. "Waa, I'm so bummed out.

Pierson's gonna find Bigfoot first." I don't think so, buddy!

Looks like our luck is changing.

We came out on top! Come on!

Yeah! [laughs]

Oh, yeah. Oh, right. This is tragic.

Amen. OK, let's gather up their equipment, guys.

Sweet axe.

Gentle clouds of Nazareth

Massacred in Ecuador

Life's too fucking short

Ask that guy

- Hey, that's Sky Pierson. - [coughing]

- Ah! - Oh, my God!

- [Sky] Gaulke. - Hey! Hi, Sky.

- Wow, long time no see. - [gasping]


I'm sorry, sorry about that. I just had some bad fish.

- So, uh, what happened here? - [gasping] Attacked.

Coconga pygmies.


Hey, Sky.

Can you feel this?


What are you poking him for, man? The guy's dying.

His upper half of his body is not connected to his lower half.

- Yeah, I know. Jesus Christ. - Hey, Pete, Pete.

- What? - Are you gonna punch him in the face, like Bill asked?

Oh, shit. Forgot about that.

- It's your call. - Oh, man. I don't know.

I'm kind of on the fence about it.

It's not like he's in any position to punch you back.

Fred, it has nothing to do with fear.

Don't you think it's excessive, punching him in the face?

He's missing the lower half of his body.

- Gaulke. - Hey, we're back.

- Gaulke, you still here? - Yeah, we're here.

[gasping] Hey, the cavalry has arrived.

- [laughing] - [gagging]

- [whispers] Sky. - [moaning]

Oh, Sky.

Let's go. Pick up what you can carry,

especially the camera equipment.

Let's get the hell out of here.

[♪ Kim Wilson: Lookin' for Trouble II]

I went looking for trouble

It looked like trouble found me

Barely legal Six times three

Finest little thing I ever did see

You trouble

A whole lotta trouble

I'm lookin' for trouble and I believe it done found me

See, I could've sworn these are the markings!

- They're on the map. - Where the hell is the cave?

It says it's on the map, but it's not there!

Does anyone else get the feeling we've been going in circles for a while?

Shit! Shit! Shit!

Fuck it! Shit! Shit!

Fuck! I'm such a fuck-up!

Give me that fucking map!

[Cheryl] Wait, wait. You said that Bill Calhoun

took a real picture of the map, right?

Yeah, Pierson was holding it in his hands.

OK. Ha! Bill was using two security cameras.

It's a mirror image. Look at the "N."

The map got printed out backwards.

Ha! Flip the picture.

Cheryl, you are a genius!

Yeah! OK, so wait, so all the directions are reversed.

So then that means that the cave is not here,

it's gonna be over, around here. Come on, let's go!

[♪ Deep Purple: Hush]

[Peter] That's it.

That's the cave. It's gotta be. Map.

See? Turn the map.

Rock formation fits with the hill. That cave is his cave.

- How do we know he's in there? - I can feel him.

[Peter] We're gonna move closer,

but stealthily, like that of a cheetah.

Thought I heard her calling my name, hush, hush

She broke my heart but I love her just the same Hush, hush

Thought I heard her calling my name

Oh, my God, I can hear him. He's in there.

Holy God. OK.

This is probably the most important wildlife discovery of our time.

And we're gonna chronicle it.

Shh! OK.

OK, over there. Cross, cross.

This is crazy.

OK, set up the camera.

OK, listen up. Here's what's gonna happen.

I'm gonna do an intro throw announce,

and then we're gonna slowly steal inside

and catch this amazing creature in his natural habitat, OK?

OK, ready? Oh, remember. Listen. Junior!

- Listen. - I am.

Do not spook him, OK?

He is probably very, very frightened of us.


- I got sound if you wanna go. - Ready, rolling.

And five, four, three, two, one, zero. Talking now.

- [beeps] - Hi. I'm Peter Gaulke,

and this is Strange Wilderness.

Camped here, waiting to film Bigfoot.

That's right, you heard me, Bigfoot.

Animals have long been known as animals, not human.

They've been described as stupid, cowardly,

aggressive, dimwitted,

low beasts, eager to kill,

eager to eat, eager to fornicate,

eager to stampede all.

But is it animals we describe, or is it mankind? Huh?

Perhaps this Bigfoot creature

can bridge the divide between us and them.

Perhaps his gentle ways can teach us, remind us

that peace and harmony are necessary if mankind is to survive.

- [shouting] - What?

- Huh? - Oh, fuck!


Hey, uh, does anybody remember what that big bastard said

before he came at us?

I think he said, "Huh?"

Like he wasn't sure what was going on.

No. It was more of a growl.

- Totally. - Actually, you know what?

It was more like a death growl. It was like, "Huh? Er.

I'm gonna kill you." I mean, I heard that.

Yeah, no, I did, too. I... yeah.

I heard it, too.

- Didn't I? - Yeah. No. Oh, yeah.

Yeah. I've just, you know, I've just never killed anything before.

But it was in self-defense, so...

- Oh, yeah. - The lady's right.

This mythological beast was engineered by the French.

Fuck, I was so blind to not see it before.

It was designed by the French in the early '50s

to fuck and eventually kill American people.

He would've come and fucked and killed all of us.

- Exactly. - You know what?

Like, if a mosquito is buzzing around your ear, do you let it go?

"Keep on bothering me and like sting me and let me get West Nile virus"?

No, you fucking smack it, like we did.

- Only we did it with guns. - I don't know, guys. I mean...

- What? - Well, I mean...

- Fuck him, right? - Yeah!

That prick deserved to die, right? Big, hairy, carnivore son-of-a-bitch.

You see the way he came at us, all up in our face and all... [roars]

- [all] Yeah! - Fucking fuck you, you fuck.

- Yeah! - [gunshot]

[Junior] Fucking cock tease.

But, you know, I've been thinking...

...maybe it's not the best way to end our show, though?

You know, actually... killing Bigfoot?

Probably not gonna fly with the TV station.

Peter, I have a little idea.

Those sharks ate the living shit out of me,

like my leg was a fucking piece of corn on the cob with butter on it.

I was yelling at them that I wasn't no seal.

"Hey, it's me, Danny-boy!" But they didn't understand my human language.

So I got this fake leg now.

The doc comes in my room and he asks me what kind I want.

What the fuck? It turns out he's talking about the wood or some shit.

Mahogany, pine or balsa?

So that gets me thinking,

"I should put a jackhammer on there,

so when I walk up the sidewalk I could bust up the cement."

[imitates jackhammer]

OK. All right, listen up, everybody.

We're gonna have him eating out of our hands when he sees this.

This. The television show of the century, huh?


- Bring it. - Let's do it.

[Peter] We were all shivering with excitement

as we carefully moved in for the first ever contact

with the legendary Bigfoot.

What we found inside the cave shocked us all.

Apparently, the Bigfoot had been experiencing depression and hung himself.

Forced to live like an animal in a cold, dark cave,

I imagine any one of us would have done the same thing.

Unlike that dude on fire at the peace rally,

we sprung into action to revive the Bigfoot, but it was too late.

It made me feel so crappy.

And so ended our fantastic adventure, the search for Bigfoot.

Join us next week for a show about beavers.

Are you insane?!

Did someone drop a safe on your head?

That's the craziest shit I've ever seen!

- [Fred] Quit shoving! - [Peter] Yeah, what is that?!

[Fred] Man, you've been a dick since day one!

- Yeah, fuck you! - Yeah, asshole!

Yeah, fuck you, Judy! You know what,

this is all 'cause of your stupid idea about faking Bigfoot's suicide.

I should've never listened... I should've never hired you.

That's the most un-American thing I've ever heard in my life.

Could you keep it down?

We're having a private company meeting here,

- so why don't you keep it down, OK?! - Hey!

In the middle of a conversation, you hit on some chick?!

Why you all up in my waist, man? You feeling froggy?

- Why don't you take a leap? - I can't. That's fucked up!

You shouldn't talk to someone like that.

You stone-wasted, half-man, party punk, shut the fuck up!

Seriously, man, come on. He's pathetic. Take it easy on him.

Fuck you, Cheech. You suck as a soundman, dude.

You stupid fuck! Go buy some sandals! Go buy some sandals!

You wanna fight? I'll fight your fight and fight ten you's.

I'll fight you guys. Let's go.

What you got? What you got? Let's see you throw down, bitch.

Throw down, bitch.

You know what? He's right! Fred! You suck as a soundman.

That's it. I'm calling security.

Oh, no, you are not calling security.

- You understand me? - [shouting]

[sirens wailing]

And that is the whole ridiculous story.

No. I haven't seen anybody in, like, over a year.

You know, things were said, and...

I think they're a lot better off without me around anyway.

- I'm such a failure. - [knocking on door]

Ah, shit. Hey, thanks for listening, OK?

I'll talk to you tomorrow. OK, bye.

- [knocking] - Nobody's home!

- [door opens] - [Milas laughing] Pete.

You know, when you yell out, "Nobody's home,"

people know you're home, 'cause otherwise

who the hell'd be yelling out, "Nobody's home?"

[laughs] Brought out a smile, huh?

Well, you won't return my calls,

so I thought I'd personally hand-deliver a hello.

No, I just couldn't hold it all together.

I've been wanting to tell you,

all the times you were beating yourself up.

Times were different then. It was easier.

You know something?

Your old man could never have survived today.

I loved your dad, you know that.

But he didn't have the tenacity and the heart that you have.

You were born into a wildlife family.

Like your old man used to say,

"All it takes is one good idea."

- Yeah, he used to always say that. - Uh-huh.

With one good idea, anything can happen.

- But it's up to you. - Yeah.

What do you say?

- I say, let's do it! - [Milas laughs]

- Pete Gaulke's back! - Yeah! All right!

You know what? Thanks, man.

- Do you mind if I tap a bowl first? - Oh, go ahead.

You know, because... Oh, man, where is it?

Um, you know, I have a bunch of great ideas.

And they seem like great ideas for about ten minutes,

and then I'm sitting here a while,

and then all of the sudden they seem stale

and I forget about them, I don't write them down.

But I think what I need to do is really kind of...

- [mumbling] - [bubbling]

Oh, God, that little guy is gonna think he's a shark.

[laughing] Wait a minute.

What a hell of an idea for a show.

A show about sharks, huh?

[both] One good idea!

Yeah, buddy! All right!

Hot Dog Hell. Can I help you?

[Peter] Yeah, I need six hot dogs,

I need six Cokes and the best damn sound man in the business.

- Huh? - I need Fred Wolf's ass in this car now.

Pete? Holy shit, man.

I've been going through it in my head 50 different ways,

how to apologize to you for what I said that day, man.

We're all sorry about all the stuff we said.

Hey, man, the world keeps turning, you know?

Dads may die and you may miss him every day,

but you still have your friends.

[Cooker] That was beautiful, man. Take a bow.

- [buzzing] - Ow! Asshole!

Why are they using such bad language?

[Peter] Yeah, I called Lawson, and he was mad at first.

- Sh! - He said Bigfoot thing was craziest thing he ever saw.

[Cooker] Well, then he never saw R. Kelly's Trapped in a fucking Closet!

[Peter] But he said if we can get a shark attack on film he'd put us back on the air!

- [cheering] - [honking]

[Peter] So get in the fucking car and let's go!


Excuse me, I didn't say... Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hi, Ed, how are you?

We got a shark episode with a shark attack.

Hi, I'm Peter Gaulke, and this is Strange Wilderness.

The ocean. Many words have been used to describe it.

And now you can add one more: dangerous.

Why? The shark.

It was one year ago today

that Danny was brutally attacked on this very spot

by one of these killing machines.

In today's show, we'll be taking a close look at this mysterious creature

that should be named "the asshole of the sea."

Menacing and terrifying,

the shark has been menacing and terrifying for over a decade.

Sharks can only be found in two places on Earth,

the northern and southern hemispheres.

This shark is called a hammerhead

because his head looks like a hammer.

These sharks are attacking Nicole Richie.

Yes, the shark is a... What the fuck?

Look... Man, look at that thing's teeth.


[continues guffawing]

[continues guffawing]

- OK, you guys ready? - I've never been more ready in my fucking life.

- [Cooker] Yeah! - It's like that shark was gnawing on me

- like a rawhide stick. - This one's for you, Danny.

- How old are those, you guys? - Three weeks old.

- [all moaning] - For you, Danny!

Oh, my God, it's gonna come up.

[Cooker] Give me that shit.

All right, let's do this. Fred, lower the steak!

Come on, let's do this!


That's him! That's that same fucker!

There's a fin! I see a fin!

Hey, shark! We got something for you, you fucking asshole!

- [gagging] - [roaring]

- [Junior] That was awesome. - [whooping]

Fuck you, motherfucker! How'd that shit taste?!

[Danny screaming]

That did it!

Pete. [laughs]

Pete, people love shark attacks.

Besides, Pierson's dead, so you're back on the air.

[both laughing]

- I'm sorry. I'm sorry. - [laughter]
