There's a trading post

35 miles northeast of here in the plateau.

Ten miles north of that is a landing strip.

We can have the film

pouched out to Delhi...

...then send it on to Calcutta.

Old Jonesy should be happy.

We're only two weeks late.

This has been such a wonderful adventure.

You made it wonderful.

Mark it down in your book.

September, the Amazon.

July, Egypt. Okay?

But in the next five minutes, bed.


Ready, boy? Come on. Come get it!

Come on. You want the ball, Thor?

You want the ball? Yeah, come on.

You ready?

Go get it! Go get it!

Bring it back.

Come here, Thor!

Come here, give me the ball.

Come here!

Come back here! Give me the ball.

Thor, come here!

I'm going to get you, boy!

Where you going?

Where's the ball?

Nice doggy.

Nice doggy.

You're a big one.

Are you a dog or a horse?

It's not a horse. It's a German Shepherd.

He's a hell of a big German Shepherd,

ain't he?

May I help you?

- You must be the lady of the house?

- Yes, I am.

I see you got a young boy.

You help him

get the best education possible?

I represent the Pacific Northwest

Magna Reading Project.

We have books

which studies have proved...

...are a major benefit towards

learning phonetics and vocabulary.

If I could have five minutes

of your time to show them to you... won't be disappointed.

We're not interested

in buying anything right now.

No, please. Please.

Let me show you these books

my company has developed.

I have them right...

Whoa, lady!

You ever heard of a leash law?

Want to control that dog

before it bites somebody?


Get off him!

Get him off me!

Go to the house!

Go on!

- Are you okay?

- No, he bit me!


Where did he bite you?

You've got a dangerous animal there, lady.

I'm suing.

You better get hold of a lawyer right away,

because you'll hear from mine!

You can talk to me.

I'm a lawyer.

Sit and stay down!

Did he bite you?

If he did, you really need to see a doctor.

Since you're on foot,

I'll drive you to the emergency room.

Why don't I take you to my own doctor?

I got my own doctor.

All right.

I've heard enough, Flopsy.

Who's Flopsy?

A flopsy, Brett, is a con man

who does things like...

...pretending to get hit by cars...

...or intentionally provoking dogs

pretending to get bitten.

He threatens to sue people

or have their pets destroyed...

...if they don't pay him money.

I've prosecuted plenty of these guys.

Then I'll see you in court.

Call Sheriff Bragg.

Tell him you're my son. He'll take the call.

Tell him we got a problem

and to send a deputy right away.

Well, Flopsy,

it's been really nice knowing you.

I guess I'll visit you in the slammer.


My advice is to turn around

and walk away without saying a word...

...and without looking back.

You ain't heard the last of this.

I think I have.

Don't think of it as a total loss.

You learned a valuable lesson.

Do not mess with a lawyer

on her own turf.

Good night, Thor.

Lousy night shift.





Hi, how are you?

Where are you?

You've been back that long

and you haven't called me? Creep!

Of course, we'd love to see you!

We'll be up to the lake in a few hours.

I thought Uncle Ted

was in another country.

So did I.

He's been back three months

and he didn't even call me.

That flaky brother of mine!

Hey, sis. How are you?

How are you?

Ever think of using a razor?

Maybe to slit my throat.

It's good to see you, Janet.

That's why you've been back two months

and don't tell me where you are.

You putz!

It's good to see you, too.

You shot up like a weed.

Uncle Ted, can I shoot the rifle?

Maybe we better talk about that later.

Come on, let's go in and visit.

How's it going at the new firm,

Janeway and Samuels?

So far, so good. My caseload's lighter

than it was in the Chicago DA's office.

Pace is a lot easier.

And, frankly, I am so glad

to be out of criminal litigation.

How are you adjusting to small-town life?

For me, like that!

For Brett, it's not so easy.

He hasn't made any friends

in the neighborhood.

But Chicago's no place to raise kids.

Out here, it's safe.

You know, sis, I'm proud of you.

I have to take my hat off to you.

You're a full-time mom to Brett

and still work full-time at the firm.

It's just great.

You're not telling me something.

Things haven't been going good

since I got back from the jungle.

Marjorie's gone.

I'm sorry.

So now it's just me and... shadow.


Don't do that to me!

Good dog, Thor.


- I haven't seen him.

- I wouldn't worry about him.

Hey, sweetie.

Come say hello to your Uncle Ted.

That's Thor. Overprotective.

Maybe if he saw you more...



We're two of a kind, aren't we, old pal?

What did you do, spit in his Alpo?

He knows an old dog when he sees one.

You better get moving

if you want to get him home by bedtime.

You have a long ride ahead.

I want you to stay with us for a while.

I didn't realize how late it was.

I'm worried about you.

Don't worry.

- Just say yes.

- Yes.

Good. You're coming with us.

No, but I'll come by soon.


I'll call you.

This week.

This week.


Come on.

Come on, Thor!



How are you doing?

Yeah, you know...

...having you up here was really great.

It really lifted my spirits.

Frankly, sis... know...'s everything.

It's everything.
