The clip Norman interacts with Billy ray jr from On Golden Pond (1981) with Doug McKeon, Henry Fonda
I hear you turned 80 today.
That what you heard?
Man, that's really old.
You should meet my father.
Your father's still alive?
No, but you should meet him.
Isn't this fun? Norman, why don't we put Billy in Chelsea's old room?
Then he can look out at the lake in the morning.
Why don't we put him out on the float? He can look at the lake all night long.
I'd like that.
You'd be eaten alive by all the bugs.
Norman, take him up.
Show him where everything is.
Come on, boy.
I just had a birthday too. I turned 13 two weeks ago.
Oh? We're practically twins.
The clip waiting for chelsea from On Golden Pond (1981) with Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn
"Welcome home, Chelsea"?
I see my birthday party wasn't cause enough for celebration.
I just wanted our little girl to feel welcome, that's all.
Norman, wouldn't it be nice if we could all get along this time?
Where the hell are they? I'm getting older by the minute.
They said they'd be here when they get here.
Is that what they said?
That's a hell of an attitude. No wonder we don't have any grandchildren.
What would we do with grandchildren?
Toss 'em on our knee.
We're the last of the Thayers, you know.
End of the line for a damn good name.
Yep, and we're gonna take it out in style.
Oh, my God.
They're here, and I'm not even dressed.
I look like an old character.
You are an old character.
Go on upstairs and change, if it'll make you feel better
Be nice to them!
I'll explain the risks involved in being late to an old man's birthday party.
Too late. Move that flower vase over to the other side of the table.
Just do it! For once, just do it!
Hey! Oh, Mommy!
The clip Billy Ray and Norman alone from On Golden Pond (1981) with Dabney Coleman, Henry Fonda
I love your house.
It's not for sale.
I don't want to buy it. I just like it.
It has a charming ambience.
How does it feel to turn 80?
Twice as bad as it did turning 40.
Yeah. I know what that's like.
I turned 40 five years ago.
Do you mind if I call you Norman?
I believe you just did.
I don't want to press.
What should I call your wife?
How about Ethel? That's her name.
Ethel Thayer. Sounds like I'm lisping, doesn't it?
Almost kept her from marrying me. Wanted me to change my last name to hers.
What was that?
I don't remember.
I think I'll start a new book...
so I can finish it before I'm finished myself.
Maybe a novelette.
Maybe something from Reader's Digest Abridged.
Here's Treasure Island.
Ever read this book?
Oh, yeah, that's a great book.
The clip Billy Ray and Norman alone Part 2 from On Golden Pond (1981) with Dabney Coleman, Henry Fonda
I'd highly recommend that one.
No need for that. I've read it myself.
But my mind is going, so it'll all be new to me.
That son of yours ever read this book?
I don't think so.
Your son hasn't read Treasure Island?
No, but I intend to have him read it.
His mother's been the real force in his life lately...
but I intend to eradicate, you know...
some of the dishevelment.
Actually, things are coming together very nicely for me lately.
I'm beginning to feel very good about myself.
Meeting Chelsea was a major...
We have a very kinetic relationship.
It's very positive. I'm sure you'd be pleased.
What do you charge for a filling?
You're a dentist, aren't you? What do you charge for a filling?
It's generally $40.
Forty dollars? Good God.
We'd like to sleep together, if it's all right with you.
What do you mean?
We'd like to sleep together in the same room...
same bed... if it's not offensive to you.
All three of ya?
No, just two.
The clip Billy Ray and Norman alone Part 3 from On Golden Pond (1981) with Henry Fonda, Dabney Coleman
You and Billy?
Not Chelsea and Billy?
That leaves Chelsea and you then.
Why would I find that offensive?
You're not planning on doing something unusual, are you?
No, no. Just, you know...
Ah, doesn't seem too offensive as long as you're quiet.
Chelsea always slept in the same bed with her husband.
Yeah, I'm sure.
Ethel and I do. We sleep together. Been doin' it for years.
I guess I'd be...
delighted to have you abuse my daughter under my own roof.
Would you like the room where I first violated her mother?
Or would you be interested in the master bedroom?
Ethel, your boy and I could sleep out back.
You could do it right here on the hearth. Like that?
You're havin' a good time, aren't you?
Chelsea told me all about how you like to have a good old time with people's heads.
She does too sometimes.
Sometimes I can get into it and sometimes not.
I think you should know I'm pretty good at recognizing crap when I hear it.
You know, it's not imperative that you and I become friends.
But I thought it would be nice.
The clip Billy Ray and Norman alone Part 4 from On Golden Pond (1981) with Dabney Coleman, Henry Fonda
I'm sure you're a very fascinating person...
and I thought it would be fascinating getting to know you.
That's obviously not an easy task.
You just go ahead and be...
as poopy as you want, to quote Chelsea...
and I'll be as receptive and as pleasant as I can be...
but I want you to bear one thing in mind...
while you're jerking me around, making me feel like an asshole...
I know precisely what you're up to.
I'll take just so much of it.
Now, what is the bottom line on this illicit sex question?
That was a good speech. Bottom line, huh? You're a bottom line man.
All right, here's the bottom line.
You seem like a nice man. Bit verbose, but nice.
And you're right about me.
I am fascinating.
I'm sure you are.
Let's get back to talking about sex. Anything you want to know, just ask me.
No, I just...
I just wanted to clear up that little question.
Chelsea and I can sleep together, right?
Sure, please do.
Just don't let Ethel catch ya.
Dad! Dad! I paddled the canoe!
The clip chelsea arrive with Billy ray jr from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Jane Fonda
What a treat. Let me look at you. You look great.
Where is he?
Just inside the door. Go ahead. He's waiting for you.
Well, look at you.
Look at this little fat girl, Ethel.
Oh, Norman! You're as thin as a rail, isn't she?
Oh! My darling, I'm so glad you're home.
I didn't think we were gonna make it.
We rented a car that explodes every 40 miles.
Rented a car, huh?
What sort of car is it?
I don't know. Green, I think.
A green car.
I meant, what sort of make is it?
I don't know.
She doesn't know. It doesn't matter.
Of course it doesn't matter. I was just curious.
Well, I guess I should have looked.
Let's see. It's very ugly, and it breaks down a lot.
Ugly and breaks down?
Sounds like a Nash.
Where's your friend?
You did bring your friend, didn't you?
I knew there was something I was forgetting.
That's still on, huh?
Well, as far as I know.
Come on in. No one's gonna bite you.
Mommy, Norman, this is Billy Ray.
The clip chelsea arrive with Billy ray jr Part 2 from On Golden Pond (1981) with Doug McKeon, Henry Fonda
How ya doin'?
You seem awfully young to be a dentist.
This is Billy Ray, Jr.
I'm Norman Thayer, Jr. Where's...
His father is trying to park the car.
This is a great surprise. You can call me Ethel, and you can call Norman Norman.
I like your logic, Mommy. I'm gonna go see if Bill has driven into the lake.
I'll put away some of these things.
The clip meeting Billy Ray from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Jane Fonda
I'm so glad you're here.
He'll be right in. He actually thinks you have to lock your car.
Mommy, Norman looks so old.
Oh, I don't know.
You look great though.
Thank you. So do you. I love your hair.
How's his mind? Is he remembering things better?
Oh, he's all right. He's all right.
Come on, Billy. Let me show you the bathroom, if I can remember where it is.
Well, at least he hasn't changed.
Nope, he's still impossible. It means so much to him to have you here.
Now he's got someone he can pick on.
Thank you for coming.
Thank you for inviting me.
Well, you finally made it.
This is my mother. This is Bill Ray.
I think I saw a bear.
No, no. You couldn't have seen a bear out there this time of year.
There are some rather nasty moths though.
This was a little big for a moth.
If you really want to be scared, wait till you meet my father.
Dad, they do have indoor plumbing.
Chelsea was just bullshitting us.
I like to paint a rather rustic picture of life on Golden Pond.
It's rustic, all right.
It's lovely rusticity.
Yeah, we've been peeing indoors for 40 years.
You must be Norman.
Yeah, must be. Who are you?
Bill Ray? The dentist?
Wanna see my teeth?
I'd just like to tell you, sir, how glad we are to be here.
Chelsea's told me so much about you...
your lovely wife and your wonderful place on the lake.
We're very pleased she's brought us here.
I'm frankly surprised Chelsea could find the way.
The clip meeting Billy Ray Part 2 from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda
Well, she's here, Norman, and that's what's important.
Do you visit your parents?
No, sir. My parents both passed away.
Then you have a good excuse.
What? Am I not allowed to speak to our guests? Is that it?
They're afraid I'm going to embarrass them.
Well, I'm gonna go say hello to the lake. Anybody coming?
Me. I never seen anyone say hello to a lake before.
Mommy, you coming?
Yeah. Want to take the boat?
Boat? All right!
Bill, aren't you coming?
That's where the lake is. Coming, Norman?
No, I think I'll just sit here and enjoy the quiet.
I'll stay too.
The screen door's broken.
Really? Norman will fix it.
The clip Elmer and dying from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda
He was my first true love, you know.
Known all along I wasn't the first in line.
No, you were a rather cheap substitute for Elmer.
And now he's had a fall.
Maybe he wanted to kill himself.
Maybe he wanted to be cremated. Probably got cancer or termites or something.
Shut up, Norman!
Not a bad way to go, huh?
Quick front flip off the mantle, end up in the fire. Nothin' to it.
Norman, will you shut up?
When my number's up, do that for me.
Prop me up on the mantle, point out which way is down.
Might even try for a full gainer with a half twist.
Norman Thayer, Jr., your fascination with dying is beginning to frazzle my good humor.
Not fascination. Just crosses my mind now and then.
Every five minutes. Don't you have anything else to think about?
Nothing quite as interesting.
Well, what's stopping you? Why don't you take your dive and get it over with?
And leave you alone with Elmer? You must be mad!
Oh, for pity's sake.
Come on and help me get the canoe off the porch.
The clip loon spotting on the canoe from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda
Norman, are you paddling?
Of course I'm paddling.
Then you're not steering. You want me to take the stern?
I most certainly do not.
God, what is it?
Look! Look! Oh, look, I've spotted the loons!
Oh! Oh, they're so lovely.
Can you see them?
Oh! Oh, my goodness. There they are.
Oh, they're so beautiful.
Yeah, they're huge.
I never saw such big loons in my life.
Those are boats, you poop. Come in closer.
A husband and wife.
I think they're looking at us.
Yeah, they are.
What the hell's the matter with them?
Hey, buzz off!
Ethel, what are you doing?
What do you mean?
Don't do that.
Why not? You did it.
Never mind. I'll explain later.
The clip miglitori's and middle age from On Golden Pond (1981) with Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn
Who the hell is that?
Someone's at the door.
It's me, you old poop!
Well, look at you.
Yeah, look at me? Quite a sight, aren't I?
Oh, Norman! It's so beautiful. Everything's just waking up.
Little, tiny birds. Little, tiny leaves.
I saw a patch of little, tiny flowers over by the old cellar hole.
I forget what they're called. Little, tiny, yellow things.
Well, want to help me with the dustcovers?
I don't have anything else to do.
What were you doin' out in the woods?
Norman, what do you think I was doing? I was getting wood.
Hey, I met the nicest couple.
In the woods.
Couple of people?
No, a couple of antelope.
Of course a couple of people.
Their name is Migliori, I believe.
Migliori? What sort of a name is that?
I don't know, darling. Italian, I suppose. They're up from Boston.
They speak English?
Well, of course they speak English.
They're a nice middle-aged couple, just like us.
If they're just like us, they're not middle-aged.
Of course they are.
Middle-aged means the middle, Ethel.
Middle of life. People don't live to be 150!
Well, we're at the far edge of middle age. That's all.
We're not, you know. We're not middle-aged. You're old, and I'm ancient.
The clip miglitori's and middle age Part 2 from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda
You're in your 70s, and I'm in my 60s.
Just barely on both counts.
Would you like to spend the rest of the afternoon quibbling about this?
We can, if you like.
Oh, for the Lord's sake.
The Miglioris, whatever their age group, have invited us to have dinner sometime.
Wouldn't that be nice?
I don't know. I'm not sure my stomach's ready for rigatoni, that sort of thing.
Oh, no! Poor Elmer! He's had a terrible fall.
Poor little Elmer. The life you've led.
The clip Norman and Ethel return from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda
Norman! Come here. Come here.
Hurry up! The loons.
The loons. They're welcoming us back.
I don't hear a thing.
The clip Norman calls operator from On Golden Pond (1981) with Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda
Just look at this place.
It's a mess, isn't it?
Just take a second. It'll be all shipshape again.
