It's been a good marriage.

That's the truth.

Why does she hate me?

Oh, honey, she doesn't hate you.

I know she doesn't.


How do you expect me to relax...

Your father's right next door.

Roll over.

OK. Lie on your stomach.

Yes, ma'am.

What is that?

It's nice, huh?

Witch hazel.

I thought this stuff

went out with Tom Sawyer.

Wait until I get to the talcum.

I want to do this to you.

Just shut up and enjoy it.

When I was little, I used

to pray I'd get a heat rash...

so my mama

would give me a rubdown.


she'd give me one anyway...

just because it felt so good.

I don't understand it.

Come here.



Need any help?

I think I can handle it.

He sure takes his deliveries

seriously, doesn't he?

I wish you could talk to me.

I want to understand, mama.

You know what?

I'm your daughter...

so I know something

nobody else can know...

how much you love me.

Come on, let's go get a malt.

Last one there is a rotten egg.

Come on, let's go.

Hey, wait a minute.


Good morning?

Have a nice day.

Yeah, you, too...

and a wonderful life.

Been keeping yourself amused?

Yeah, to say the least.

Mr. Anson.

Hold your horses.

I'll be right there.

Thanks, Eddie. Still no change?

Well, we all keep on

hoping and praying.

-How much money you got?

-I only got a quarter.

-What'll it be, boys?

-Two ice creams, please.

Why don't we make it three?

I think the house can afford it.

-Thanks, Mr. Anson.


Thanks a lot.

No problem.

Thank you.

Sorry, Mrs. Piersall,

next window.

I'm closing for a while.

You can't. I've been waiting

in this line twenty minutes.

Very sorry, Mrs. Piersall.

Some goddamn bank.

Gladys, calm down. We can just

move into the other line.

I am not going to move

into the other line.
