Don't get droughty

A line from subtitles for The Legend of Tarzan movie: "you will get stinking rich so don't get droughty". Everything is alright in this sentence? There should be "don't get droughty"? Does it have any sense?

    What do you think he is trying to tell Tarzan? Is he telling Tarzan not to get scared or change his mind? Is he telling Tarzan not to complain? Or do you think he is talking about what Tarzan is not supposed to do after he is rich?

    This is the kind of information we call 'context' and it helps people help you. :)

    I don't know. Actually there are planty possibilities. "Stop complaining" maybe? And I think that transcription is very inaccurate on this word. What I hear is very, very similar to "trochee" (I have a voice option in dictionary so I can compare sound of this word to sound of the word in movie).

    But it's spoken by Waltz, he is not native after all.
