Jessica:
SO, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY YOUR BIGGEST COST OF OPERATIONS
ARE CURRENTLY? Parker: LAST YEAR,
WE SPENT $2 MILLION ON FUEL. OH, WOW. I THINK THE BOYS ARE JUST ABOUT
TO START FUELING AND WHATNOT, SO I’LL GO INTRODUCE YOU
TO A FEW OF THEM. ♪♪ HOWDY-HO, NEIGHBOR. WHAT’S UP? Parker: JESSICA HERE, SHE’S
GONNA BE HELPING US WITH — REALLY,
IT’S ABOUT JUST MAKING SURE THAT WE’RE STAYING EFFICIENT. AND WE’VE GOT A LOT TO DO
THIS SEASON. IF YOU’RE WORKING HARD, YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING
TO WORRY ABOUT. OH, GEEZ.
UH-OH, BRENNAN! SO WE’VE ALL GOT SOMETHING
TO WORRY ABOUT, IS WHAT — I STARTED SMOKING. THIS IS BAD.
[ LAUGHS ] YOU SAID IT, AARON. SO I’M NOT HERE TO SPY ON ANYONE
IN PARTICULAR. I’M JUST HERE
TO SEE HOW YOU GUYS FUNCTION. Parker: YEAH. I MEAN,
I’M NOT GONNA SUGARCOAT IT. SHE’S GONNA BE
KIND OF UP IN YOUR [BLEEP] SO WHAT, YOU DON’T TRUST US
ANYMORE, PARKER? IT’S NOT THAT I DON’T TRUST YOU. IT’S REALLY THAT I DON’T TRUST
MYSELF. WE’VE GOT A MOUNTAIN
TO CLIMB THIS YEAR, AND I WANT TO FIND THE BEST WAY
TO DO THAT. LET’S GO.
ALL RIGHT. IS IT EVER AWKWARD
IF THERE IS SOMEONE WHO IS, I GUESS, BEING UNPRODUCTIVE
FOR A WEEK? YOU JUST FIRE THEM. YOU DON’T —
YOU AREN’T INTO REDEMPTION? WE DON’T HAVE TIME
FOR REDEMPTION. Brennan:
GOLD MINING’S BEEN DONE — WE’VE JUST BEEN UP HERE
FOR A HUNDRED YEARS NOW. SO I DON’T KNOW WHAT A BRAND-NEW
GRADUATE FROM UNIVERSITY IS GONNA COME OUT
AND CHANGE THE WORLD FOR US. Jessica:
DEFINITELY GOT MY WORK CUT OUT. IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE
PARKER’S GOT A NUMBER ON ANY PART OF THE OPERATION. DEFINITELY HAPPY TO HAVE ANOTHER
GIRL HERE, BUT I DON’T KNOW. LIKE, SHE DOESN’T HAVE
ANY MINING EXPERIENCE. SO IT JUST SEEMS A LITTLE WEIRD
TO HAVE SOMEONE TELLING US WHAT WE COULD DO
TO DO OUR JOBS BETTER WHEN SHE DOESN’T REALLY KNOW
EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE DOING. I’M WORRIED
THAT IF I SUDDENLY REVEAL WHO THE BOTTLENECK OPERATOR IS,
THERE MIGHT BE SOME TENSION. Aaron: WE’RE ALL OUT HERE
GIVING IT 100%. WE’RE GRINDING OUR ASSES OFF. BUT IF SHE’S GONNA BE
OUT HERE TELLING PARKER THAT WE’RE NOT WORKING
AS EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE, PARKER’S GONNA HAVE
SOME PRETTY [BLEEP] UPSET STAFF ON HIS HANDS. I’LL TELL YOU THAT MUCH.
