A gopher!

A gopher? Where?

Do you know what gophers can do

to a golf course?

I think they're tunneling in

from that construction site over yonder.

Czervik Construction Company?

I'll slap an injunction on them so fast

it will make their heads spin!

You get rid of those gophers...

...or I'll be looking for a new greenskeeper!

ls that clear?

Aye, sir! Very clear, sir!

I'll put my best man on it!

I'm looking at you.

You wore green so you could hide.

I don't blame you. You're a tramp.

That was a good one!

That was right where you wanted it.

You're a little monkey woman,

you know that?

You're a little monkey woman.

You're lean...

...and you're mean and you're not

too far between either...

...l bet, are you?

Would you like to wrap

your spikes around my head?

Damn your eyes, man!

I told you to cut the long grass

on the 13th and mow the practice green!

I was unavoidably detained.

You can forget about the 13th

and the practice green.

I've got a more important job for you.

I want you to kill every gopher

on the course!

Check me if I'm wrong,

but if I kill all the golfers...

...they'll lock me up

and throw away the key.

Gophers! Not golfers!

The little brown furry rodents!

We can do that.

We don't even need a reason.

Then do it, man!

I'll just do the same thing,

but with gophers.

It's not my fault nobody can understand

what you're saying.

Give me the Mets on three

and I'll take the Yankees even.

I'll call you back.


All right. I'll be right up.

Take over for me.

I'll be right back.

So I jump ship in Hong Kong

and make my way over to Tibet...

...and I get on as a looper at a course

in the Himalayas.

A looper?

A looper. You know, a caddy, a looper...

...a jock.

So I tell them I'm a pro jock

and who do you think they give me?

His oldest brother Ed is a businessman, and brother Andy is a chef, and runs the Murray Brothers "CaddyShack" restaurant located in the World Golf Village resort near St. Augustine, Florida.
