That's a UFO right there.

No question about it.

At night...

...I see the lights

on that hill sometimes.

That's probably

the headquarters for the UFOs.

Nice of you to come

and help us poor folks out.

It's nothing that condescending.

One question.

Are you gonna screw up?

You never know.

There's a lot of misfits and losers

doing your kind of work.

Alcoholics, ex-cons

trying to get to heaven.

I probably fit

right in there, don't I?

If you do screw up,

I'll be all over you.

I'll do the best I can

to keep that in mind, sir.

You take care, Mr. Taggert.

Jack Taggert.



That's a nice name.

I was just sitting over there

eating all by my lonesome.

I thought you might like to come

sit down and have some with me.

You really are new here.

Stand out a little bit, do I?

I didn't mean that.


You're talking to me.

Something wrong with talking to you?

Excuse me.

Sarah's a nice girl.

Sad, though.

Town don't really take to her.

Why's that?

A lot of history.

People here don't give up history.

Hey, Mr. Cotton!

Where are you headed?

In the direction I'm walking.

Would you like a lift?

I don't like to ride in cars. Might get

to like it, then I'd want one.

How about if I did some

fixing on your house?

It won't cost you nothing.

Sure, but the worst thing

you'd do would be to fix it up.

I might like it.

Isn't that good?

No, I want to move.


House falling apart.

That's like a Zen riddle.

- I'll see you around.

- All right then.

Is this the Kellogg residence?

Yes, it is.

But I think you know that, Mr. Taggert.

I was noticing that the steps

were all kind of broken down.

I could get under there

and fix it all up.

I don't hand out Bibles,

and it won't cost nothing.

Thank you, but I'm not interested.

Thank you.
