Parker Picks His New Foreman | Gold Rush


♪♪ ♪♪ WHAT A WEEK, EH?
THAT WAS PRETTY ROUGH, BUDDY. Narrator: PARKER AND HIS CREW
ARE ABOUT TO WEIGH GOLD FROM THE WEEKS’ OPERATION
IN THE CLUSTER CUT. Parker: WELL, LET’S SEE
HOW MUCH WE GOT HERE. Brennan:
20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120. -NO WAY.
-140… 185.15. Mitch:
THAT’S NOT A BAD RUN. Narrator: WORTH OVER A QUARTER
OF A MILLION DOLLARS. FOR THE WEEK.
NOT BAD AT ALL. AND MONEYWISE,
THIS IS ROYALTY-FREE. THIS IS OURS PERIOD. -IT FEELS GOOD, DOESN’T IT?
-YEAH, IT DOES. YOU KNOW,
I LOOK AT MY JOB, NORMALLY WHEN WE’VE GOT
A FOREMAN, AS WORRYING ABOUT PERSONNEL,
EQUIPMENT, AND THE FUTURE
OF THE COMPANY. LIKE, THAT NEEDS TO BE
WHAT I’M WORRIED ABOUT. THERE’S SO MANY LITTLE THINGS
THAT HAVE TO BE TAKEN CARE OF, LIKE FUELING A PUMP. Narrator:
PARKER IS ABOUT TO MAKE
THE BIGGEST DECISION OF HIS SEASON SO FAR. WE’VE GOT TO STAY SMART AND WE’VE GOT TO STAY
ON TOP OF THINGS. AND THAT’S WHERE I THINK
YOU GUYS HAVE NAILED IT WITH WHAT THE FOCUS IS.
YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS UNDERSTAND. WHEN DEAN LEFT, YOU GUYS
ARE ALREADY DOING THE JOB OF FILLING IN THAT GAP
THAT GOT LEFT. AND SO WHAT
I’D REALLY LIKE TO DO IS FOR YOU GUYS TO SHARE
THE ROLE, THE TWO OF YOU GUYS. SO, BASICALLY,
YOU’RE JUST ASKING IS TO HAVE SOME
CO-FOREMANS, THEN? YEAH. I GUESS THE BIG QUESTION
IS IF YOU GUYS ARE GAME FOR THAT AND WILLING TO TAKE THE JOB. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE
NOT SPREADING OURSELVES TOO THIN, THAT WE CAN’T
GET ANYTHING ACCOMPLISHED. NO, NO, FOR SURE. AND I TRUST YOU GUYS
AND I TRUST YOUR JUDGMENTS. LIKE, I [BLEEP] LOVE YOU GUYS. I KNOW I CAN’T DO IT
WITHOUT YOU. SO I’VE YET TO HEAR A YES OR NO. I DON’T WANT TO BE CAUGHT
IN THE KILL ZONE. IT SEEMS LIKE BEING A FOREMAN
AROUND HERE HAS BEEN LIKE A DEATH ROW SENTENCE.
A DEATH SENTENCE. YEAH, AND NEITHER OF US
WANT THAT. SO I WON’T TAKE ANY OFFENSE
IF YOU GO, “HEY, WE NEED YOU TO GO BACK TO DOING
WHAT YOU WERE DOING BEFORE. WE GOT SOMEBODY ELSE
IN HERE NOW.” I AGREE WITH MITCH.
I’D SAY THE SAME THING. IF YOU’RE NOT HAPPY,
THEN I’D LIKE TO KNOW, BECAUSE THINGS ARE
GOING GREAT RIGHT NOW. YEAH.
I’LL DEFINITELY STEP UP. THAT’S JUST MAKING IT
OFFICIAL HERE. YOU GUYS SAYING THAT IS WHAT
MAKES YOU THE RIGHT PEOPLE. AND I’M REALLY —
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE REST OF THE SEASON,
YOU KNOW? I REALLY AM. CHEERS, BOYS.
CHEERS. -CHEERS.
-TO A GOOD SEASON. AND TO ME BEING
OUT OF THE CUT. [ CHUCKLES ] WHOO!
[ LAUGHS ] NOW, THERE’S SOMETHING
TO CELEBRATE.
