(coughing) what's the matter, honey? you feel all right? oh, i'm fine. just a little cough. (coughs) you coming down with a cold? oh, no, no, honey.

(coughs) it isn't so bad.
no, no, i'm not going to leave you here. i don't care how roger feels. you're coming along. i'm going to tell him right now. (coughs) (coughs) you're wasting your time, camille. i am not taking you along. i wouldn't go if you begged me. (phone rings) well, let me answer it. hello? oh, hi, carol. he did? we are? well, i'll start packing right away. uh, thanks for calling, sweetie. oh, addison, guess what. some idiot is taking his wife along on a hunting trip.
oh, we'll make a perfect foursome. that's right. wilbur, carol, you, and the horse. oh, addison, you're impossible. roger. roger, we have got to take carol with us. the poor kid is coughing her head off. and the doctor says that it's going to get worse unless the rains and weather clears up and the air gets a little better. but you know how dry it's been lately, rog. well, ed, the girls are going along with us, so tomorrow at the crack of dawn we'll be heading for the tall timber. i'm not going. what do you mean? i thought you were excited about this trip. i just read my horoscope, and the news is not good. ed, what are you talking about?
disaster will befall me. look, will you forget about these superstitions? nothing can happen to you. why, you walk around with four horseshoes all the time. i wouldn't leave this barn tomorrow for all the carrots in kansas. ed, i'm surprised at you. don't you know that superstition is based on ignorance? so i'm stupid, but i'm alive. now, you listen to me, you cowardly pisces. now, ed, you're behaving like a child. now there is nothing... what is my shoe doing nailed over your door? i put it there for good luck. ed, you're going to have the time of your life.
i'll put you in your little trailer. i'll hitch you to the car, and then we're off. off a cliff. (humming) honey, i told you there's no sense in sweeping. that dirt goes down at least 5,000 miles. you know, it's a lucky thing you brought us along to keep this place clean around here. you know, i never saw so many insects in my life? will you please stop spraying me? i don't intend to bite you. you didn't talk that way to me before we were married. ah. oh, that fresh mountain air. nothing like it, hey, honey? mm, it's wonderful. you know, you haven't coughed once since we've been up here.
or for that matter, since you backed the car out of the garage. (chuckles) yeah, how about that? well, i think i'll wander down to the water. i'll see if there's any high grass we can use for a blind. you want to come along, wilbur? uh, no, no, i think i better stay back here and protect the girls from the wild animals. well, i don't think there are any around here. i just saw a lot of rabbits on the way up. yeah, well, if they gang up on you, they can beat you to death with their ears. well, you have to watch it. ed, you haven't eaten a thing since we left home this morning. aren't you hungry? nope, just scared. you can forget about that horoscope. we've been on the road since 6:00 this morning. nothing has happened to you. so far. -wilbur. -what is it? -i smell a rhinoceros. -where? point, ed, point. -rhinoceros? -yeah.
he could be visiting a relative. -oh, ed. -it's only a couple hours by jet. ed, you are acting like a coward. if there's anything i cannot stand... (gunshot heard) wilbur, stop hanging on my neck. us cowards like to run light. you got me nervous now. that was just a gunshot. i don't like any shots, not even penicillin shots. i'm afraid of guns, wilbur. take me home. no, ed, i will not take you home. doesn't it bother you that you've got a jinxed horse who may drag you down with him? ah, poppycock. no, pisces. -oh... -(rustling in leaves) shh. what was that noise?
boys, dinner's almost ready. you better hurry up and shave. shave? what for? who's coming? please, it'll only take a few minutes? i don't intend to shave until we get back home. oh, now, come on, nature boys. the least you can do is go down to the creek and wash up. yeah, please hurry. we'll hold off lighting the candles till you get back. oh, we wouldn't miss that for the world, would we, wilbur? oh, no. it would ruin the trip for us. are you ready, gaston?

i'll bet when the ducks see that gun of yours they'll be standing in line to get shot. yeah. of course, old betsy here won't do too badly. oh, please. the only birds you'll get with that are the ones flying a suicide mission. mm, isn't that mountain air wonderful? yes. aren't you glad the boys asked us along? oh, yes. but you know, it wouldn't hurt any to cough once in a while, sweetie. (coughs) (laughs) dear. oh, look, a baby duck. oh, what a cute little doll. oh, poor little thing. he probably got separated from its family. oh, how could anyone shoot a helpless little creature like this? oh, i know. it makes me feel just awful. murderers.
well, honey, a hunting trip isn't much fun unless you do a little shooting. kay, don't let that little duckling upset you. we'll only be shooting at the big ones. would you have the nerve to shoot this baby's mother? no, but i'd like to get a few of his uncles, his aunts, and maybe a grandfather or two. wilbur, are you going to join that killing party? are you? -am i? -of course you are. we came up here to hunt, remember? i told you not to bring the women along. well, if that's the way you feel, we don't have to stay where we're not wanted. that's right. we can sleep someplace else, kay. carol, don't be foolish. don't you come near me, you...you assassin. let them go. well, if you boys change your minds, we'll be sleeping right over there. rog, i don't like the idea of them sleeping by themselves.
i know kay. the first little noise, she'll come jumping right into my arms. so will i. they should be flying south by now. i would have to leave my compass home. have you got any idea which way south is? only one way to find out. you face north. then you turn around real quick. i think this plug of yours is bad luck. did you have to bring him along? he gets nervous by himself, rog. it's his horoscope. what? well, i mean, i figured if we got enough ducks, he could help us carry them back. wilbur, look. here they come. oh, boy, i've waited a whole year for this moment. you pushed me. no, i didn't, rog. all those beautiful ducks gone. you went soft because carol showed you that little duck.
oh, please. he's standing too close to you. i'll move him. -yeah. -come on, ed. (ducks quacking) wilbur, look. here they come again. hundreds of them. oh, boy, i can't miss this time. they're gone again. all on a count of that stupid horse. huh, i can see ed isn't wanted around here. i'll send him home. we had our chance and missed it. there hasn't been a sign of a duck around here for 45 minutes. maybe they're on their lunch hour. why don't you blow that duck call thing again, hm? i'm beginning to think this is more of a warning whistle than a mating call. (ducks quacking) here they come.
it's no use, rog. i can't make this kid an orphan. all right, you blow the horn and let me shoot. the girls are right, rog. i couldn't kill a duck with this little fellow around. i'm going back to camp. this gun cost me $375, and i'm going to shoot ducks even if it breaks my heart. boy, did i have a job getting this ketchup over me. if this dying routine works,
oh, here he comes. ed: wilbur. (groans) wilbur. (groans) ed. ed, what happened? i've been shot by some careless hunter. (groans) i didn't hear any shot. he must have used a silencer. (groans) ed, you're bleeding. i'll wipe it off for you. no, don't touch it. it hurts. ed, i should never have brought you here. i forgive you, wilbur. oh, it's getting dark. come on back. we came up here to shoot ducks, remember? what... my.
some careless hunter shot ed. oh, that's too bad. oh, is there anything i can do? no, i don't think so. yes, there is. take my gun and you can throw it in the lake. i'm never going hunting again. all right, wilbur. and throw yours in, too. oh, no, wait a minute. my... my gun cost $375. rog, if you don't throw that gun in the lake, i'll never speak to you again. fine. oh. ed. ed, how do you feel? getting weaker. oh, no wonder. (groans)
ketchup! wilbur, yell, but don't hit. oh, oh, ed. oh, i had a... i'm just relieved that you're all right. (laughs) oh, boy. i mean, this could've happened, you know. oh, ed. oh, believe me. i really learned my lesson. okay, ed, you can stand up now. (grunts) (grunts) oh, ed. oh, you're just going to take it easy for the next few days. eating, sleeping, and having a ball. (chuckles) carol? carol? what is it, honey? my hunting days are over. wilbur, do you mean that? roger and i have thrown our guns away.
