Corn's up 3 cents. You sold

for less last week, didn't you?

We shouldn't be doing this,

it's not right.

Not right?

Let me remind you

what Dad always says:

"When a man stops wanting,

a man stops living."

When your brother Grant

gets here next week,

he'll be ABC'ing,

"always be closing."

You know he used to keep his suit

in his gym locker

in case a funeral needed

a trumpet player?

Actually I did know that because

we went to the same high school.

You're too dark, son.

That's always been your problem.

People like winners,

people with good attitudes.

Okay, here we come.

Dean. These people are bereaved and

they need condolences from a family.

Family is you and me.

I don't wanna be a part of this family.

I'd love to talk about that

at some later date,

but I want you to get out,

we're gonna go over and you're

gonna shake this family's hand.

Let's go.

On behalf of David's family,

I'd like to thank you

for attending this service

of respect and dedication

for their beloved father and farmer.

Death, in a number of ways,

unites us all,

and David's demands that

each of us put aside our toil

to unite ourselves in his honor.

Today we share the bond of

love and friendship for David.

The farmer, who depends directly

on rain and sunshine and climate,

must be a person of faith.

He has faith in the Creator

every time he plants a seed.

Sorry for your loss.

Mr. Pritchard.

Elizabeth.

I'm Henry Whipple.

This is my son, Dean.

Henry. Dean.

Thanks for coming.

Dean and myself,

really our whole family,

we wanna extend our

sympathies to your family.

Did you know Dad?

Oh, surely I knew of him.

We belonged to the same co-op.

And I know your dad owned

200 acres that he rented out.

What are you getting at?

Seeing as how you live down

in the big city of St. Louis,

it's gonna be a hassle

for you to oversee that property.

And I just wanted to

let you know

I'm prepared

to take it off your hands.

Get out of here.

Don't decide now.

When the time is right,

you can talk it over...

I said go away.

You're sick.

All right. I know that you're in

grief, sir, but you do have my card.

I'm sorry.

What? Sharks.

I've been renting and farming

Pritchard's land for 10 years.

Stay away from it, hoss.

Okay.

Grant would've closed it. ABC, right?

That's not funny.

That land was gonna be

his "welcome home" gift.

Sir, I am so sorry...

I can't stand you kind of people.

But Elizabeth can't deal with this and

I don't ever wanna come back to Iowa.

Going price is 8000 an acre.

Where do we sign?

Oh. The cool kids have graced

us with their presence.

Rolling out the "welcome

home" carpet for Grant.

Are these enough cookies?

No. More.

You again.

Why do you always eat standing up?

Because, Cadence,

who does time wait for?

I don't know.

No man. Time waits for no man.

Oh, no, no.

I wouldn't wanna trouble you.

Grant's gonna flip when

he sees the 200 acres I got him.

He's finally coming home.

Yes, he is.

Expand or die, gentlemen.

Get big,

or get out.

We all know this is what it takes

to make it in modern agriculture.

Grain prices

are at an all-time high

and traders are betting on corn

like it's the new gold.

Corn alone is a 2 trillion-dollar

market, gentlemen,

and you, you are responsible

for that money.

I've got a PhD in microbiology

and I've been working closely

with farmers from your community,

like the Liberty Seed salesman

Jim Johnson and Sons. Jim.

Thanks very much.

Heh-heh-heh.

We've had a chance to

sit down and talk about

how AgriWarrior can create

a nutrient explosion in your soil.
