There’s something in the river.
I was just thinking the only thing that’s missing right now is a giant crocodile.

Notes:

[1] Animals get me = Animals understand me.
[2] George was 7 feet and weighed 500 pounds = He left out the word "tall," e.g., George was 7 feet tall and weighed 500 pounds.
[3] Pushing a thousand = close to 1,000 pounds.  George went from 7 feet tall and 500 pounds to 9 feet tall and almost 1,000 pounds.
[4] Oh, you didn’t know about the 30-foot wolf? = The correct verb is "don't", e.g., "Oh, you don’t know about the 30-foot wolf?" 
[5] Incoming! = This is used in the military to warn friendly forces about incoming enemy fire.  Here he's warning them about an incoming wolf!
[6] Hell of a day = A day that's exceptional, but we don't know if it's a very good day or a very bad day.  You have to look at the context.
[7] It’s coming back = The knowledge of how to fly this helicopter is coming back to me.  I'm remembering how to fly it.

Answers: 

1) he [ee]
2) would have [would ev]
3) on his own [on is own]
4) are you okay [ya okay]; the word "are" is sometimes missing in questions.
5) to me [ta me]
6) going to put him down [gonna put im down], e.g., put him to "sleep" (forever).
