All right. You know what?

I have about had it with you.

As far as I am concerned,

we can call it quits right now.

We can just turn around and see

that lawyer you wanted to see

- because I have had it--

- Watch out!



A dog-- tell me it was a dog.

It was a boy.

It was a little boy.

He ran out of the corn.

He's dead.

He's dead, isn't he?

Oh, yeah.

Congratulations, tiger.

It's manslaughter!

That's what they call it!

You took your eyes off the road!

Well, don't you

wanna come see

so you can tell

all your NRA buddies

what you bagged

in Nebraska, huh?!

Don't you wanna come

and see?

What are you gonna do?!

What are you going to do?

Answer me!

Answer me, you--

Answer me when I talk to you!

Look at me!

Look at me!

How'd you handle it

over in Nam, huh?

How'd you handle it in the hooches?

What do you use?

Grease guns, right?

Grease guns and Zippos!

Settle down.

You're hysterical.

Oh, tell me. You crapped out.

Big Vietnam War hero, huh?

Purple Heart

and all that, huh?

Come on, John Wayne!

What are you gonna do?!

It's no time to go Section 8!

You ran that little boy down.

He was just a little boy,

you ran him down

and you can't--

You're going to jail.

- You're going to jail.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

- You're rabid.

Okay. It's taken me

all this time to figure it out.

You've got a terminal case

of rabies.

Shut up.

- What are you doing?

- Turning him over.

- No. You're not supposed to touch--

- I wanna see what I did.

- I'm sorry about this, fella.

- I don't wanna look.

His carotid artery and jugular vein

have been severed.

His throat's been cut.

Somebody scragged this kid--

bayonet, maybe a kitchen knife,

a cleaver-- I don't know.

It sure wasn't

a two-dollar buck.

You don't go to any more Kiwanis

meetings after your throat's been cut.
