Follow us for the weekend

Tall is the ceiling

In these unforgiving arms

they crawl and go gently

Oh they spill


You can always make me laugh, Matty.

I can be more than funny, you know.

Come on, just one date.

Look, it'll do your

image good to be seen

with the resident nerd.

You're a geek, there's a difference.

In a good way.

What about dinner tonight then?

Aren't you going to Travis's tonight?


How about I ride out

to Travis's with you?

I'll meet you at the main tree at four?

Yeah, yeah, okay, fine.

See you then.

Wait, what no goodbye kiss?

See you tonight, Matty.

(water bubbling)

(eerie music)


Hey, Sam.

It's kind of small to do so much damage.

Well he's a good five feet.

And you're sure he's the culprit?


Those idiots gutted him.

I mean I really should've

been called you know.

How many did they kill

before finding this one?

You don't wanna know.

Well you know how these

podon towns are run.

I mean hell, they called

me out on this case.

The big CSI guy coming

out on a missing dog case.

At least it wasn't a kid.

Yeah as the victim or the culprit?



When you going to the big city?

Next week.

Oh yeah?


You gonna miss working around here?

Oh yeah.

Gator bites and knife fights,

the dream of every young CSI agent.

Well you know it's gonna

be different in Nawlins.

I hope so.

You wanna grab a bite to eat?

I can't I have this nuisance

call I have to go check on.

You're kidding me.

That makes four this year already

and the summer just started?

Well my money is on the fact

that this is one probably

not a gator.

Oh yeah?

Yeah when you put it

like this I have been out

to this house,

four or five times I think

she just likes the attention.

Gotta love those people.


But you know it gives me a

chance to do some research

out there so.

What's up there?

Well it's either a really

big daddy gator or a

new pod has moved in.

I'll check it out, yeah.

Well I tell you what if

you find a monster gator

up there you just give me a call and

I'll coming running back.

Monster gator, right.

I will.

You have a good time in Nawlins.


I'll call you before I leave.

(engine turns over)

(upbeat guitar music)

I was born with feet so heavy

So I'm gonna show him around town.

You know, help him get his

bearings, show him the ropes.

What's he like?

The sheriff?

He's kinda quiet.

A bit of loof.

No but cool, really cool.

He's done real police work, Marion.

He's very handsome.

I think I'll take him

around and introduce

him to all the folks in town today.

He stopped in here a few mornings.

No wedding ring.

I didn't notice that.

I did notice Travis Beecher

racing around town in his truck.


time for the summer crowds.

I'm just glad they spend all their time

out at the lake so they don't bother us.

I thought those kids

were friends of yours.

I have a serious job now, Marion,

I've got lots of responsibilities,

to serve and protect.

Thank you.

Sorry about that.

(phone ringing)

It's the sheriff.

Morning, sir.

Yes, sir.

Yeah I can be right

over to the bait shop.

Alright see you there, sir.

Gotta go.

Duty calls.

Thanks for breakfast, Marion.

Sorry about that, Bob.

You going out fishing today?

That's what I do.

Alright be careful from those gators.

Ain't the gators you gotta

worry about out there.

It's those lunatic lake people.


Just kidding.


Gators I get.
