[after drinking some of Albert Soady's sweet sap whiskey]
Little heavy on the sap.
A little what?
On the sap, it's a little heavy on the sap.
The saps what makes it.
Yeah, well that may be, but if I didn't know better I'd say I just drunk from a bottle of maple syrup.
Gimme the damn jar back!
[gets up from chair]
A man who can't look another man in the hairy eyeball and tell him he's heavy on the sap ain't much of a man.

If you are a real outdoors person, you will like it.
This is a very funny parody of the realities of life amongst the real yoopers, not the phony yoopers who live near academia at the colleges in The Soo, Marquette and Houghton. It started as a very successful play and has been carefully translated to film. It is about the myths and legends surrounding deer hunting camps and hunting. If you have ever spent time in a deer camp, you will recognize all the truths they joke about (drinking, cardplaying, farting, sacred clothing and food, etc. etc.). A bearwalker is an Indian legend about a spirit which has came back or been called back on a mission -- they often take the form of a bear, hence the name. See it.
