Fishing from the pontoon boat? Of course! The Matron and her family are at a cabin.
John: "I'm afraid to fish because everybody's going to argue about whether or not to kill it or throw it back in."
Merrick (thoroughly alarmed): "You were going to KILL a FISH?"
Matron: "Don't be silly. It will be fine."
John actually does catch a large fish -- maybe a carp? He knew, yours truly can't remember but DOES remember the screaming that ensued when the thing was dangling from the hook.
John: "Get the basket! Big enough for dinner!"
He might have said "let us murder all small children." Complete mayhem. Imagine all voices, top pitch.
Scarlett (already almost weeping): "Dad! He's gasping!!! Throw him back in!!!"
Merrick: "HIS NAME IS BUTTERBALL!!!! PUT BUTTERBALL HOME!"
Stryker: "My God, Dad. You're not seriously considering killing that poor thing are you?"
Butterball was returned to his murky home water.
John to wife: "Effective parenting or maternal indoctrination?"
Matron: "Careful. There's some algae on your leg that you might be smothering."
