Grumpier Old Men

Synopsis: Things don't seem to change much in Wabasha County: Max and John are still fighting after 35 years, Grandpa still drinks, smokes, and chases women , and nobody's been able to catch the fabled "Catfish Hunter", a gigantic catfish that actually smiles at fishermen who try to snare it. Six months ago John married the new girl in town (Ariel), and people begin to suspect that Max might be missing something similar in his life. The only joy Max claims is left in his life is fishing, but that might change with the new owner of the bait shop.

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

You know you done me wrong.

You stole my wife and gone...

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

I'm gonna kill you just for fun,

you, rascal, you.

I'm gonna kill you just for fun,

you, rascal, you.

I'm gonna kill you just for fun,

the birds can have you when I'm done.

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

Moron.

Putz. Where are they biting?

Pop says that he spotted

Catfish Hunter at Indian Slough.

Catfish Hunter? Maybe this

is the year we catch him.

Where do you get that "we" crap?

Got a mouse in your pocket?

That fish belongs to me.

I'll let you visit him when

he's mounted on my wall.

Honey?

You forgot your Thermos.

Hi, Ariel.

Hi.

Yeah, you messed with my wife,

you, rascal, you...

You messed with my wife...

See you later.

- ... now I'm gonna take your life...

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

That's my fish.

I'm gonna kill you just for fun,

you, rascal, you.

I'm gonna kill you just for fun,

you, rascal, you.

I'm gonna kill you just for fun,

the birds can have you when I'm done.

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

I'll be glad when you're dead.

You, rascal, you.

That's it.

Come on, just one good bite...

... and I got you!

Oh, damn.

Here comes another man

around third. He will be held up.

And Gustaldo with a double,

and it's a 2 to 1 game.

Hey!

- Hey, dickhead!

Turn that radio down.

You're scaring all the fish away.

Of course, he played

in the Twin Cities...

... before going over to Boston.

- We'll have another look at it.

Turn the damn radio down, will you?

Who put a bug up your ass?

I saw him.

Catfish Hunter?

Right after I dropped anchor, he stuck

his head up over by that log.

He looked at me, smiled,

and swam down into the mud.

He smiled?

Holy moly. How big is he this year?

He's as big as a Buick. I would've

had him if you hadn't shown up.

You couldn't catch

crabs from a $10 hooker.

How is your sister, by the way?

I saw Sven down at the dam.

He's says there's a rumor...

that Rick Ragetti's cousin's

coming to buy Chuck's Bait.

An ltalian running Chuck's?

We'll have the first mob-run

bait shop in Wabasha.

What're you doing?

I was here first.

I got just as much right

to be here as you do.

You got bad luck.

I don't want you infecting my spot.

Find your own fishing hole.

You got a fart in your

brain or something?

And turn that down!

Where you going?

Not far.

What's the matter with that guy?

Getting goofier every year.

You don't have the balls

to take me on anymore!

Ariel's had you neutered!

Let's see what you're made of...

Let that be a lesson to you.

You putz!

All right, you chicken-livered schmeer.

Get outta here!

Isn't it beautiful?

The lava lamp?

The angel.

Ariel says he watches over the house.

Don't get too used to him. Our house

will be ready soon, then we're out of here.

How long have you been up?

For a while.

What have you been doing?

Watching you.

What?

I'm up!

Yes, you are.

Morning.

Go downstairs.

I'll be right out to make you breakfast.

She hates me.

She doesn't hate you.

She just doesn't like you very much.

I thought I'd check out some reception

halls for the wedding.

I talked to Pop.

He's already booked a place.

He did?

That's great.

Did he get the Radisson

in La Crosse?

No.

The Pepin Dance Hall?

That would've been great. But no.

The Majestic Ballroom?

Not even close.

What's left?

Slippery's Tavern.
