Why not?

Fucking marooned.

Come on.

You're not rock-marooned.

Just climb down.

But I am rock-marooned.

I can't climb down.

I'm gonna have to jump.

Hold on.

How do you get up to that part?



How the f*ck did

you get up here?

Such a bear.

I think you gotta jump.

I can't jump,

I'II break my ankle.

You'II have to barreI out

of here and get help,

and I'II just be sitting there.

All right, I'II jump.

No, no, no, no.

You're gonna

twist an ankle or something,

and then we're fucked.


Is it really crumbly there?

Like, the ledge?


I mean, I could try and...

Why don't you

make me a dirt mattress?

No, Gerry.

Come on, dude, I crow's-nested

alI the way up here

to scout-about the ravine 'cause

you gerried the rendezvous.

if I hadn't we'd be split.

We'd stilI be re-split.

Dude, just jump.

You'II be alI right.

I won't be alI right, Gerry.

Well, I could try

and break your fall.

- Jump on your head?

- Like the circus, dude.

No, not on my head,

with my arms.

Didn't you ever go

to Barnum's, dude?

They have a fat guy.

He's got huge arms,

and he catches people

from, like, 50 feet.

All right, you ready?

No, I'm gonna break your arms.

Just make me a dirt mattress.

- Where do you want it?

- Right there.

All right.

Well, I gotta hauI the dirt.

Well, get hauling.

I can hauI it from over here.

- Shirt basket?

- Shirt basket.

Yeah, it's crumbly.

- Is it soft?

- Yeah, soft.

It's like -

It feels hard, but it's...

You know, it's like dust.


You're gonna take forever,


I'II get alI this stuff

up to it also.

I mean, alI you really need

is, like, a two-by-two...

like, air-ram dirt mattress.

Just to put your feet

'cause that'II cushion it,

and then you'll

probably falI forward.

So if I clear,
