Duck Dynasty 6.04 Review: “Quack Draft”


As always, our favorite duck calling guys had a lot of fun this week. This week’s episode of Duck Dynasty featured the dynamic of brotherly love between three brothers (just like my house growing up) and a slightly morbid and less interesting cemetery visit!

This week, after a fundraiser for the West Monroe fire department, Willie, Jase and Jep decide to spend a day training to become firefighters, since they went to school with Chuckles, the fire captain. As you can imagine, this came with nothing but hilarity, and the Duck Commander employees should NOT ever be firefighters. Jase can’t use the hose, Jep couldn’t use the axe, and Willie is afraid of heights. And as Willie pointed out, rednecks are usually the ones starting the fires, so I doubt that will change anytime soon.

Phil, meanwhile, appeases his wife when she wants to go visit a relative in the cemetery. However, he was unprepared when (after arrival), she decides to search (along with Si) for their own burial plots. They find a nice little spot near a pond, so people that come to visit them can go fishing, but the whole thing was a little morbid for my taste. I can’t imagine life without Si!!

Ultimately this episode was just as much fun as it always is. The b-plot at the cemetery was not as good as some of the other b-plots in the show, but the firefighter story was excellent. It reminded me of growing up with two brothers, which was NEVER, ever boring. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the episode:

“Remember that time I gave you an atomic wedgie?”- Willie, to Chuckles

“Chuckles never had much of a sense of humor, which is ironic given his nickname”- Willie

“You’re acting fiduciary”- Jep, to Willie (just sound it out, you’ll get it)

“La di da”- Phil

“You like cemeteries do you?”- Miss Kay, to Si

“I got to see Willie get the biggest wedgie in the history of wedgies”- Jase, after Willie’s failure in repelling

Another week, another duck calling, hair raising adventure in West Monroe, Louisiana. I perpetually look forward to the next episode! Let me know what your thoughts are! See you next week!
