*Matt is driving out to the middle of nowhere...also known as some people's property in Washington state. These people have a giant replica of Noah's Ark. It's Matt's dream. Matt is in awe. Is it bad that I'm always thinking of how they must really film this stuff? I wonder if this is one of those cases where Matt looks at it, they go back out, the camera crew stays inside and Matt acts like he walks in for the first time.
*It's a giant boat. The problem is how to get it out of the old barn it's in and how to tow it back to the Roloff farm. The lady asks if Amy knows about it, Matt says no. Surprise!
*Back at the office, Matt is telling Amy and Jeremy about it. Jeremy looks amused. Amy doesn't like it. They talk about cost? What, it's not a freebie? Oh, Matt says it's free, I guess it's the cost of having the professionals tow it back.
*Matt tells Amy he will kill the project if Amy says kill it. Amy says kill it. Hm. Amy has a change of heart and comes back to talk to Matt about. This seems fake. Amy tells Matt to get the Ark to the farm. Matt says he finally wore her down.
*Matt, Jer, Zach and some of their friends and I think some pros come to tear the old barn down where the boat is sitting in. I didn't think of that. I guess the people didn't want the barn! Jeremy predicts the barn will collapse because it's so rotten. Matt begins demolishing it. Jeremy is right! Basically it all falls in on the boat, but just falls off.
*Back at the office, Matt tells Amy and Jer that he wants 2 of every animal for his Ark. He's going to have a petting zoo (that turns out to be pumpkin season). Amy doesn't know when Matt is serious and when he's kidding.
*Jake comes with Matt to watch professionals tow the boat back. Jake predicts something will go wrong. I don't, because there's professionals there. But it would have been more fun to watch if it was all Matt! :) There's a dramatic shot of the boat approaching going under a bridge, it looks like it might be too high, but it makes it.
*I think this whole episode is more guy stuff. I'm not interested, but I have an uncle that would love all this kind of stuff, how they construct and transport all this stuff. But it's not my cup of tea..
*Amy and Molly are on the porch when the Ark arrives. Amy doesn't look happy. She tells Molly that Matt has no boundries.
*Intense scene alert! Amy arrives home (still in the van) with Jake and there is some county guy on the property, his truck is parked outside of the gate. Amy goes nuts! She starts yelling at the guy about why he's tresspassing. They guy won't answer her and tries to leave. She wants his name and all that. He won't give it to her. She wants his camera that he was taking pictures with. He won't give it to her.
*I don't get this. Don't the government and safety inspector have ways to do whatever they want? Why didn't the guy just give her his card? Maybe he was intimidated by Amy because she was PISSED and I mean scary pissed. It's pretty stupid for the guy to try and leave when he's on camera. But it's not over! Amy calls Matt. The guy is trying to leave. Amy is walking ahead of him trying to block him. It's kind of amusing to watch this guy try to run past Amy. The guy wants to talk to Matt on Amy's cell phone but Amy won't let him. The guy makes his move and darts past Amy! He jumps through the fence, but Amy is on his heels! Amy jumps into his truck!!!! He pushes a little bit but not too much. Amy calls 911.
*One thing this show is the side of Amy we don't always see. She is scary when she gets angry! Amy says she becomes a Mother Bear (I guess that's where Jeremy got that saying from) when she thinks her kids or home is in danger! I kind of see why Amy was upset, but I wouldn't call it "danger". But Amy basically went psycho. I think Jeremy's, Zach's, Jacob's future wives will have nightmares if they saw this side of Amy and Molly's future husband too! If Amy feels threatened she goes psycho!
*The officer from the Sheriff's office arrives. He sounds scared of Amy too. The county guy did manage to leave. Amy says it's tresspassing. The Sheriff says it's not, because his understanding is the county don't always tell people they're coming because it would give the people the "head's up" to fix or hide anything. That does make sense. But Amy thinks the officer doesn't understand her. She's mad. The officer looks intimidated, he tells Amy's he's not saying the guy was right.
*Matt arrives. Matt doesn't seem half as upset as Amy so I kind of wonder if Matt knew the inspector guy would be coming, I still don't get why the guy didn't just give Amy is card and tell him why he was there and that he was allowed. Maybe he wasn't and that's why he was trying to run away. I don't know, something seems weird about it. Anyway, Matt didn't seem mad, he was just happy Amy was on his side and is pissed at someone other than him!
*Not another word is said about this confrontation between Amy and the county guy and no explanation is given so that kind of makes me think he was allowed to be there or else I think they would have included something about how they got the guy arrested or fined or whatever.
*Amy and Matt are looking at the Ark on the farm, all happy. Amy says it's like a garage sale, you just take stuff other people don't want. Matt says it's his finest work... Amy says he didn't do anything, he just had it towed to the farm.
