I'll bet you can't do it.

Go on, hurry up!

Come on.

Try it again. Try it again.

Trouble is your pants are too tight.

Take them off, why don't you?

I can't.

I haven't got anything on under them.

Oh! Bye, you all.

I'm coming down

this way again sometime, Red.

All right! It's a free country. I guess.

Look at those horses.

Doc Gordon's buggy, ain't it?

Willy McIntosh.

I heard his pa's sicker than a cat.

You ask him. You're gonna be a doctor.

I'm sorry about your father, Willy.

What's Dr. Gordon going to do to him?

He's going to do an operation!

Pa's got ulcers on his leg.

- What's ulcers?

- I don't know.

They're terrible bad, though.

- He's got to have them cut out.

- I hope your father will...

He's got to quit that. That's my pa!

Didn't Dr. Gordon

give your old man chloroform?

The doctor says he's got heart disease.

I thought they had to give chloroform

for an operation.

He's gotta quit that. He's gotta quit!

I'll kill that old doctor. I'll kill him!

Let's get out of here.

I never heard a grown man cry and holler

like that before, did you?

Bye, Drake. I had a good time today.

Sure. Why not?

You stick with me

and I can teach you a lot.

I guess you can, all right.

Sure. We're friends

and we ought to go on being friends.

Drake McHugh.

Get in here and do your chores!

All right, Aunt Mamie!

Here's where I catch it again.

- Remember what I just said.

- I sure will, Drake.


For heaven sake. Is that you, Cassie?

Where have you been?

Well, down to the tracks

with Drake McHugh,

and to Elroy's icehouse.

He and I and Randy Monaghan

swung on the rings.

Did you swing on the rings

with Randy Monaghan?

That doesn't mean anything.

Say, don't you know it's almost dark.

I just had to tell you something,

something terrible.
