The Making of 'The River Wild' Page #2



You don't have to wear it all the time,

but we got some rapids comin' up here.

- Just give me a hand, damn it!

- It's coming up!

You all right?

If you're gonna sit there in the back...

you should sit on

the floor in the center.

- I can't see from there.

- Well, then, sit in front.

I like it here.


Here we go!

Woo-hoo! Heh!

Wow, this is great!

Yes! Hold on, Maggie!

Look out for that rock!



That was great!

But where's Dad?

He's swimming.

- Point your feet down!

- Point your toes, Dad!

Could you just stop laughing

for a second and help me into the boat?

- Ohh!

- Oh!

Is this the biggest one, Mom?

The biggest one's

the Gauntlet.

That's a five-plus.

That's off the scale.

- When do we do that one?

- Well, we don't do that one.

That's after the take-out

at Bridal Creek.

- You can't go down there.

- Have you ever done it?

- Mom is saying it's too dangerous.

- For you, maybe.

Roarke. Honey,

I went down the Gauntlet...

when I was 18 years old

with two other guides...

experienced guides.

And we were just lucky.

But there were two other people

that summer who did not get so lucky.

One guy got killed,

and the other one is paralyzed for life.

Don't worry. We're gonna hit

some threes and some four-pluses...

and we will risk death

a number of times on this trip.

So you're gonna scream,

you're gonna be so happy.

- Hey, look, Mom, there's Wade!

- Hello, the shore!

- Hello, the boat!

- Is everybody okay?

- Yeah, I just got a cramp!

- We're trying to work it out.

Hey, who's your friend, Gail?

Oh, this is Tom,

uh, Roarke's father.

Oh, no. You didn't tell him

about us, did you?


Hey, Roarke!

Don't tell those fish we're comin'!

All right,

let's bring a little line in, okay?

We're gonna aim for that ripple

right over there. See?

Ten, two, ten, two...

ten, release!

Then let go of your line.

Why don't you ask your dad

if he wants to come over?

Hey, Dad, you wanna try this?

Not now!

Thanks, buddy!

Do you think

he even knows he left Boston?

Yeah, he knows.

But he took two planes

and a charter just to get here, so...

let's give him a break.

- Try it again.

- Why are you suddenly on his side?

I'm on everybody's side.

I'm the mother.

- You got it! That's it!

- Look, Mom!

You got a nice one, buddy.

He's a beauty.

Let's get him.

There he is.

Come here.

Come here, sweetheart.

Look, Daddy.

Oh, it's a monster.

You know,

this is the first time...

we've all had dinner together

since Mom's birthday.

Hello, the Gail, Roarke

and Tom family!

This is the Wade raft

passing you by!

Hey, Wade!

I caught two fish today!

First time I ever fished!

Must be that lucky hat!
