Last week on Deadliest Catch, young greenhorn Clark Pederson asked Sig Hansen, captain of the Northwestern, for permission to marry Hansen’s youngest daughter, Mandy. Poor Pederson was still waiting for an answer, and Hansen was still mulling it over. “My gut says they can wait,” Hansen said. “Wait another 10 years, for all I care. Mandy can have any boy she wants, in my mind.”
Pederson was doing all he could to impress his potential father-in-law, including cleaning off his captain’s chair and console. And although Clark proved to be quite hygienic, Hansen decided to have a bit of fun with his very eager would-be son-in-law by asking the crew about Pederson over the speaker.
“Does he hold air or is it just a façade?” Hansen asked. “Is he one of them guys that pretends like he’s all, you know, humble and respectful, or what? Or is he full of crap?” One of his crew members said, “He’s humble and respectful, but he ain’t real bright.”
In the end, Clark was given the chance to pull in the last pot of the season. And if he got the pot, he got the girl. “Hey, don’t miss. Your future depends on it,” said Hansen. Fortunately for Pederson, he didn’t miss. Hansen said, “I think you got my answer. I hope she says ‘yes,’ pal.”
Deadliest Catch airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Discovery.
