That's a pretty horse, sir.

Thank you.

you know me, I'm fair.

I charge a dollar a jug.

But since you're

I'm going to have

to put you down for three.

Three dollars?

Oh, now, Mr. Wright,

that ain't fair.

I... I know

I owes you a lots,

but I'm

a regular customer.

One dollar.

Thank you, Mr. Wright.

You better stop

drinking, Lemuel,

before I own...

your house.

Free of charge.

Go see after

your father.

Thank you, Mr. Wright.

Future customer.

Sorry, I don't extend

credit to strangers.

You own that plot

of land across the way?

What's wrong

Every time I try to tell you

you won't listen.

You know, I will smack you.

I'll smack you.

No more playtime for you, none.

Not today.
