A recap: Rancid Crabtree breaks his leg on a toboggan run Patrick and Crazy Eddie have constructed. In order to make it up to Rancid, the boys drag a road-killed bobcat to Rancid's shack and deposit it inside while he's sleeping (as Eddie observes, Rancid doesn't sleep in pajamas), positioning the corpse so it looks alive. As it turns out, the bobcat actually is alive, causing Rancid to flee from his shack into his outhouse. on crutches. After the bobcat leaves, Rancid proceeds to chase Patrick and Eddie down the hill, passing "daft old Mrs. Swisher", who, believing it's Sunday instead of Saturday, is on her way to church.
-->"It's Saturday, Mrs. Swisher," Eddie yelled as we sped past. "Sunday ain't till tomorrow."\\

"Seriously though, my boy," Clyde said, "I was just asking myself why ol' Pat hadn't been in lately to fondle the guns. Yes indeed. Now, good buddy, I'd be much obliged if you would try out the action on this new thirty-thirty and give me your expert opinion on it."

She didn't reply. But I could tell she was going to have trouble getting to sleep again that night. It isn't often you see a naked man on crutches with a red stocking cap on his foot chase two boys through the snow on a cold winter morning. What was even stranger, the crippled old woodsman kept gaining on us.

-->'''Split-shot sinker'''- An angler who suddenly drops into the water while standing with one foot on the dock and the other foot in a drifting boat and holding a ten-horse motor in his arms is known as a ''split-shot sinker''. First he splits, then he sinks like a shot. The split is usually accompanied by a hideous screech, so horrible in fact that other anglers have been known to look up briefly from sorting their tackle boxes.

"Hi, Clyde." I said.\\
"Don't touch the guns!" Clyde shouted.\\
I took out my wad of money and began to unfold it.\\
