Noah falls in love with the clear water of the Colorado River and decides not to follow his family. He says he will fish for food.

It ain't no use. I was in that there water. An' I ain't a-gonna leave her. I'm a-gonna go now, Tom—down the river. I'll catch fish an' stuff, but I can't leave her. I can't."
