Kid's got a right to make a living, Abner. You ought to be glad for him. He got out of this town, making something of himself.
-I am glad for him, Thurl, but there's a difference between leaving home
and forgetting the place altogether.
Julie comes over on Tuesday after she gets the kids to school, and then picks me up and takes me to town shopping. Makes sure I get my fiber.
You know, it's amazing. After they raise their own young' uns, they come back wanting to raise us.
I'm saying this ain't a game, Mr. Meecham! Now, we don't have money laying around to go and pay a bail man just so you can prove a point.

Father and son verbal duel p1 of 2:
I never taught you to be greedy. You learned that somewhere else.
-This is not about greed. There's nothing out there for you anymore, Dad. Things change. Life goes on, and you gotta go on with it. There ain't any more to it than that.
-Life goes on, huh?
For those who let it.
-I'm an 80-year-old man with a bum hip and a weak heart. How much life you think I got left to go on with? I'm no fool, Paul. The road ahead, it ain't long and it ain't winding. It's short and straight as a goddamn poisoned arrow. But it's all I got, and I deserve to do with it as I please. And what makes me so angry is that I cut and scraped and did without... so that you could go to an expensive school and learn a trade which you now seem
intent on using to do me out of what has taken me a lifetime to accumulate!
This must be God's finest joke.
Father and son verbal duel p2 of 2:
So you're angry at me for getting an education.
-I'm angry at you for not caring about the only thing left that matters to me.
And I don't need a nurse.
Yeah, well, you need something, and it's not gonna be cheap, and I'm the one who has to pay for it.
-Then it is about money.
It's about you, Dad. It's about me trying to help you.
-I don't need your help.
You know, goddamn it, why can't you just be easy? For once?
Well, I wish you had something better to do with your life than sitting around being bitter and lonely.
You're just like all them. You don't think a man can change, make something better of himself.
You even walk like it.
White trash. You even walk like it.
-Heh. It amuses me. Must be great to be so funny.
Helps to pass the time.
-Thought you said that boy of yours was coming to haul you back to the nursing home today.
I guess he couldn't make it. Probably tried to call... but since you rednecks
can't pay a telephone bill, he likely had trouble getting through.
The fateful exchange:
I can't blame you for wanting out. But if you stayed here, he really would be
nicer to us. He'd have to be! I'm sure we can work it out. You can keep on
living out here.
He won't do nothing if it makes any effort.
-You wouldn't have called him lazy if you'd seen him beating those girls
with a rubber hose.
