DVD Commentary by Steve Smith[]

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: One of the characters that I have probably the most fun with is Ranger Gord, played by Peter Keleghan. I just– I don't know, he just– he's been too alone for too long and too high in oh so many ways. And in this particular episode, I think we may have gone over the line where, instead of Ranger Gord waking up from a nap, he's actually coming out of hibernation. But we'll probably continue to push the envelope with good ol' Ranger Gord.

Segment Summary[]

Plot: Red learns that the water of the lake is rising. Mike and Ed explain that it's caused by beavers that have built a dam across one end of the lake so the water can't get out. The men of the lodge try to come up with some ideas for getting rid of the dam. Dalton then shows Red some beaver repellent that he plans to use to get rid of the beavers. Mike then explains to Red that they are building a raft and using that as part of the plan to eliminate the dam. The twist here is that the one of pontoons on the raft is actually a torpedo from World War II. Red decides to use that to blow up the dam. They launch the raft at the dam and watch. The raft with the torpedo on it hits the dam and blows it up, sending its remnants crashing into the lodge.
