Hey! Hey! Hey, don't!

Stop! Don't do that!

Wait a minute. Where do you

think you're going? Hey, look!

That guy is getting ready

tojump into the water.

After all, I'm a Scout Ranger,

and a Scout Ranger never

turns his back on the call of duty.

A Scout Ranger is trustworthy,

loyal, helpful...

There he goes!

kind, obedient, cheerful,

thrifty, brave, clean, reverent,

and must do a good deed

every day!

Don't go away! Don't go away!

I'll be right there!

What are you doing in that boat?

- I don't wanna be saved.!

- The man you wanna save is in the water!

- I don't wanna be sav...

- There he is. Go after him.

- I don't wanna be saved.

- Go get him! Go ahead.

Keep calm! Keep calm!

I'm coming!

Here I come, sailor, old boy!

Keep calm now!

All right then. Hey, hey!

The boat is leaking!

The boat is leaking!

I think I got a submarine!


Go away! Mind your own business!

I wanna drown!

Come here. Where is he? Where'd he go?

Stay there. He'll be right up.

There he is.

Ha! I got him! I got him!

Aw, let me go!

Let me go!

I got a right to drown myself.

It's a free country.

Let me go!

You wanna catch cold in this water?

Help me with...

Come here. Get ahold... I...

What's the matter?

This guy's heavy! He's got lead

in his pockets or something.

Well, get the lead out! Oh, so

that's what you're after... my gold!

All right!

Take it and let me drown!



Hey, Tom, look!

It's gold!

He's loaded with it!

You heard him! Take it!

Gold, Tom! I'm gonna

put it in my pocket!

I've got gold in my pocket!

I don't wanna be saved. I wanna

drown. Let me go. Tom! But Tom...

Come on! Get up! Get up

outta there. Let me go!

I haven't got anything to live for.

Nothing to live for?

Man, with all that gold

that you've got?

Nothing means anything for me

without Rosette.


Who in the world is she?



She's the most beautiful creature

in the Yukon.

She once loved me.

Now she hates me.

I can't get her out of my mind,

no matter how I try.

My life's not worth living!

Let me go!

No, you don't. No, you don't.

No, you don't.

Take it easy, buddy. Take it easy.

Calm down.


What kind of a guy is he?

What are you doing?

George.! What are you doing?

I'm going down for the third time!

Here. Grab that rope.

Tie that rope around you.

Tie it around you.!

P- Pull it up! Pull it up!

You got it?

Good boy!

Let the rope loose! Let it loose!

Hold on. Hold on there.

Now, get... Come on. Attaboy.

Come on. Come on, George.

Come on, boy. No, you don't!

Now you hold still.

I got enough trouble here.

Come on. Come on.

Come on. Grab yourself.

Get outta here.

Now, hold on there.

Get up here. Up.

Get this off! You wanna

choke me? W-Where's the gold?

In my pants.

Where? Where's your pants?

Down there. Come on. Let's

go. Yeah. Get that gold.

Wait a minute Take it easy. Don't

lose the gold. I'm gonna take it easy.

A little bit, little bit... pull it out.

This thing is really loaded.

Why keep me in agony?

You should have let me drown.

Drown? With all this gold?

Uh, I mean, NuggetJoe, you've got

everything in the world to live for.

Huh. The richest

gold mine in Alaska.

Why, with that kind of money, you can get any

girl you want. Why worry about that one girl?

I don't want any girl.

I want Rosette.

How about a little sleep?

I'm tired.

Stop that! Thinking of yourself. I'm ashamed

of you, George. At a time like this here.

We've gotta

cheer up NuggetJoe.

What kind of a Scout

Ranger are you? A tired one.

Never mind that.

We've gotta make NuggetJoe laugh.
