Hi, son. You go home and tell Mom

I'll be home in a few minutes.

- Now, let's go up.

- All right.

Come on, fellas.

All right, Eddie. I'll give you

the 50 cents when I change the buck.

Sixty dames.

Come on, Nick, what do you say?

Come on, Nick, what do you say?

Hello, boys.

Hello. How's the old woman?

Glad to see you.

- Come on in, Joe.

- Glad to be here.

Yeah, sure. Have a good one.

- What did you do that for?

- Why, I'll give it to you.

- Hey, Cliff.

- Well, what are you gonna have?

- Beer, and hurry it up.

- Right. Come on with that beer.

Hey, where's Lily?

Oh, I'll find her. Oh, Lily.

Where is she?

- Where'd she go?

- I don't know.

Now look what you went and done.

You're fired.

- You lazy, thieving little son of a...

- Hey.

- Easy with the whip.

- You keep out of this.

- Go on, get out of my house.

- lf Chico goes, I go.

- What?

- You heard me.

Don't you talk to me that way.

I'm your father!

- That's my tough luck.

- Listen...

Now get this.

If I stay here, Chico stays too.

Take some beer out to the boys,

will you, Lily?

Clean that up, Chico.

- Here's Lily!

- Lily, how are you?

- Hello, Lily.

- Thattagirl.

What's your hurry?

- Some beer here, Lily.

- Ain't that funny?

- Come here, sweetheart.

- Oh, lay off, you big ape.

Over here, honey. Give me a bottle

of that stuff, will you? I missed you.

- Yeah?

- Put a head on this, will you?

A couple of glasses.

Here's looking, Lily.

How's things, baby?

Let's me and you take a little walk

over by the quarry, huh?

Come on in, Cragg.

- Hey, cobbler, when do I get my shoes?

- When you pay for them.

- What do you say, do we take a walk?

- I can hardly wait.

- Hello, Mr. Cragg.

- Sit down.

- Beer?

- Yeah.

You ain't been in lately.

I don't care for the crowd here.


They're pretty mangy.

How long are you going to stand it?

Why don't you get out

before it is too late?

- Where would I go?

- Out into the world.

You could make something of yourself.

You have power.

Yeah. I'm a ball of fire, I am.

You don't realize your potentialities.

Come again?

Did you read that book I gave you?

Oh, I tried to, but I didn't

understand it very good.

It's by Nietzsche,

the greatest philosopher of all time.

Yeah. Well, I never did

get much good out of books.

You are a fool.

You could learn a lot

from that book.

But if you are content to stay here

like a dumb animal... this miserable life,

then I wash my hands from you.

- Gee, Mr. Cragg, you ain't sore, are you?

- Here.

- For the beer.

- Oh, no, I couldn't take it. Not from you.

No, no. I accept no favors.

Oh, don't be like that.

You ain't like a customer.

- Come in again tomorrow?

- Well...

...we'll see.

- Did he pay you for it?

- Yeah, but I gave it back to him.

- Say, what do you think we're running here?

- It looks to me like a zoo.

Four. Four and a quarter.

Four-fifty, 4.75, 5.00.

Another cup of coffee, honey?


Well, Ed, I'm glad to see you.

Come on in.

- It's hot tonight.

- Yeah, yeah.

Just make yourself comfortable, Ed.

- Good night, Nick.

- Good night, boys.

- Good night, Joe.

- See you tomorrow.

Yeah, come back tomorrow.

I wanna talk to you.

You fixed it with the big fella, didn't you?

They ain't gonna make no trouble?

Yeah, that ain't what I

wanna talk to you about.

He's a big politician, ain't he?

He's a big something,

and it ain't a politician.

Honey, you makes me tickle.

Chico, go downstairs

and watch the still while I'm out.

Come on, hurry up! Get a move on you.

Come on, old-timer, come on.

- You and I are gonna take a walk.
