- Are you ready, Virge?

- Anytime.

Turn him out!

- BO:
Ya-hoo!

- VIRGE:
Go get him, Bo!

Make time, Bo! Get on him, Bo!

Turn him over, Bo!

Get him over! Get him over!

Good time! Good!

What was my time?

- Five-eight.

- Five...

That's good enough to win just about

every prize they got at that rodeo!

I'll give to you a paper of pins

And that's the way our love begins

If you will marry me, me, me

If you will marry me

I'll give to you a feathery bed

With downy pillows for your head

If you will marry me, me, me

If you will marry me

But you don't want my paper or pins

And you don't want my feathery bed

You want my house and money instead

That is plain to see

Well, here they are

Take everything

My house, my money

My wedding ring

And in the bargain I'll throw in me

If you will marry me

Bo, when you was five,

I just throwed you on a horse, smack!

And there you was ridin'.

- Remember?

- Yup.

When you was eight,

I throwed you in the creek, splash!

And there you was swimmin'.

- Ain't that right?

- Sure, Virge.

Splash!

Bo, you're 21 years old

and we're on our way to

a big city, Phoenix, Arizona.

It's time you met up with a gal.

A gal?

Oh, it ain't nothin' to be scared of.

In a way, women and swimmin'

is pretty much the same.

You got good reflexes, Bo.

You'll make out just fine.

(HORN HONKS)

So long, Bo.

Bring back some prize money.

Take it easy, Orville!

Two for Phoenix, Arizona.

We goin' down for the rodeo.

I figure I'm gonna win me just about

every prize they got down there.

Well, that's nice.

Now sit down someplace.

You got a long ride ahead of you.

VIRGE:
Bo, the lady's hat!

- Oh, sorry, ma'am.

- Why don't you look where you're goin'?

It was an accident, sir.

He ain't used to travelin'.

- This is his first time off the ranch.

- Virge, that's a lie!

That's a lie and you know it!

I been all the way to Helena.

That was when he was 12 years old

to have his tonsils out.

Well, that still counts!

Here, give me that.

(ALL SINGING)

If you will marry me, me, me

If you will marry me

I'll give to you a petticoat red

All stitched around

with golden thread...

Virge?

I've been thinkin'.

You know, about what you said.

What was that?

You know. About me findin' a gal.

Oh, what... What about it, Bo?

I don't know anything about gals, Virge.

Nothin' at all.

Well, that's what I mean.

It's about time you learned.

It ain't nothin' to be scared of, Bo.

You know how much you like swimmin'

when you got used to it.

Besides, I know the idea

crossed your mind once or twice.

I seen you lookin' at them

pictures in Orville's magazines.

I'll give to you a feathery bed

With downy pillows for your head...

Maybe I glanced at them pictures

a couple of times.

But if I do find me a gal,

it ain't gonna be one of them gals

from all those magazines.

I already decided.

I'm gonna get me a

angel.

- An angel?

- That's right.

I wouldn't set my sights

too high if I were you, Bo.

You just figure on pickin' out

some plain-lookin' little ol' gal,

with a cooperatin' nature

and a good personality.

I mean, we gotta be realistic.

What's some angel gonna want

with a cowhand like you?

What's that got to do with it?

That steer this mornin',

he didn't wanna get throwed, did he?

Well, I throwed him.

Some wild horse you're breakin',

he don't wanna get broke, do he?

But you don't let what he wants stop you.

What makes you think

a girl's any different?

This trip is gonna be mighty educational.

Kiss me quick and go, my honey

Kiss me quick and go to cheat sur...

Listen, Virge.

I'm gonna find me an angel.
