With the Northwestern’s king crab quota filled, Deadliest Catch greenhorn Clark Pederson was tasked with pranking his father-in-law, Sig Hansen. Let’s just say sig wasn’t amused.

Deck boss Edgar Hansen instructed Clark to tell the captain that his daughter Mandy was pregnant. “I don’t really want to do it, but when you’re the low man on the totem pole, you kind of got to do what the deck boss says,” Clark said.

Reluctantly, he went up to the wheelhouse. “Mandy is pregnant,” Clark told Sig. “I think Jackson is going to have a cousin.” At first Sig was skeptical, saying, “Come on. Are you serious?” But then he fell into deep contemplation.

Considering that Sig is coming off a massive heart attack, Clark decided it was probably best to come clean. When he revealed that he was just kidding, Sig chased him out of the wheelhouse. The crew got a kick out of the prank, but it looks as if Clark will be regretting it for a while.

Sig got on loud speaker and said, “Clark, I would really, really keep an eye open when I go to sleep. I’d keep one eye open when you sleep from now on for the rest of your life.”

Deadliest Catch airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Discovery.
