Long Walk Home (1990)
The Long Walk Home is a 1990 film starring Sissy Spacek and Whoopi Goldberg, and directed by Richard Pearce.

Her name was Odessa Cotter.

I called her Dessie.

As best as anyone knows, she was

the first woman to rock me to sleep.

There wasn't anything

extraordinary about her, but,

I guess there's

always somethin'...

extraordinary about

someone who changes...

and then changes

those around her.

That's me.

- Morning, Mary Catherine.

- I was only seven years old.

Excuse me, Odessa.

I didn't mean to run you down.

- Is that a car or a boat?

- It's a piece of sausage.

- You tell her, sweetness. - Odessa,

we're having a cocktail party tonight,

so I'm sending you to Oak Park

with Mary Catherine...

- just as soon as Claudia gets here.

- Yes, ma'am.


- Look what you did. Boop. Gotcha.

- Has anyone seen my racket?

- Oh, I know where it is.

- Bye-bye.

- Bye.

- Oh, my clubs.

- I wanna cut something.

- Not today, young lady.

Ah, your hands are sticky.

- Oh, she's been beside herself for weeks.

- That's 'cause you never discipline her.

- Where are you going?

- One guess, Sherlock.

- Trey and I are playing at the club.

- Oh, well.

- I wanna see Trey's car.

- Here are my clubs, honey.

- If you can get 'em to the pro shop.

- I'm givin' a party tonight.

Catch Sara.

She's on her way to the club.

I can't play with the grips like that.

Thank you, sweetie.

- I'll see you at 6:00, huh?

- See you at 6:

Odessa, just have 'em

waitin' out here at 3:00.

- I should be back from the beauty parlor
