20th MEETING OF THE DISCIPLES

OF JAMES DEAN:

Jimmy Dean?

Jimmy Dean!

Get back here to the 5 and Dime now,

Jimmy Dean!

Jimmy Dean, you are there,

I know you are.

JAMES DEAN - MYTH SURVIVE

Jesus has to carry the cross alone

And all the world go free

No there, is a cross

For everyone

And there's a cross for me

The consecrated cross

I'll bear

Till death shall set me free

And then go home

My crown to bear

for there

A crown for me

In the cross

In the cross

Darling, can I tell you

What really on my mind?

We play this game

Such a long long time ago

You think you're winning

But you don't know the score

Sorry I'm late, Juanita,

but they were short handed

at the truck stop,

so I helped out.

Should have known better

to expect never to be on time.

You never have been for 20 years.

Won't be all surprised

you end up being late

for your very own funeral.

I said it wasn't my fault.

Never is!

Did you see anything of Jimmy Dean,

out there?

No, he was heading

over to Luke Jacks,

last time I saw him.

When are you gonna to finish up

with them decorations?

I'll put my crap up here

and get right back to it.

Better shake a leg.

Before anybody is gonna

show up for that reunion,

they're gonna be showing up any time now.

I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you.

Mona get back yet?

No, the bus is late.

God damn, Juanita, you're not

going to turn that Jesus music,

I hope.

Watch your mouth!

I'm trying to get

the weather news.

I give you the weather news.

118 degrees in the shade,

as if there is none of.

Same as it was that day before yesterday

and last week and last month...

There is talk of a rain

storm over near Odessa.

Oh bullshit, ain't rain there

in 20 years, ain't going to.

Sorry I'm late, Juanita,

had to stop of at the truck stop

to pick up some thing.

I bet whatever it was,

is wearing pants.

Mona and Joe her yet?

Oh my God!

Joe's out back,

unpacking some them new

magazines that just came in.

Mona must be held

up in the storm.

I know, it's raining

like hell out there.

Watch your mouth, young lady.

For crying out loud Juanita,

this is 1955, not 1905.

Hell, everyone says

"hell" now-a-days.

You ain't gonna be saying that

while you're working here.

Is Sidney in there?

Hey, Sidney!

Joe?

Bring up them new Photoplay magazine.

Hey, Sidney!

Hi, Joe!

Sissy in yet?

She is looking for Sydney,

but he's asleep.

Hi, Juanita, sorry I'm late.

That's alright honey.

-Some storm out there?

-Ain't that though.

Joe?

Where are them new

Photoplay magazine?

-I haven't unpacked them yet.

-Why?

You know I've been waiting for them.

There is something in there I think

you're not gonna want to see.

What? What it is?

He is in love

with someone.

No, he's not, believe me.

That Italian girl, Pier Angeli,

she's already married.

- Hi.

- Hi, Sissy, listen...

I heard you won yourself another

one of them...trophy last night.

Yeah, you know what, I think I'm the best

roller skater in the whole of Texas.

You look like you've eaten well.

-Juanita, make her stop.

-Juanita, where's Sidney?

I want to talk to him about sponsorship in

the roller skating championship next month.

The bible study club held a

meeting late last night,

I don't bother to wake

him up this morning.

-You mean bourbon club.

-What was that?

Juanita you know what?

You should turn this on

and liven this place.

Mona, Joe, come on out here!

They're playing our song

for the talent competition.

-I've up all night rehearsing!

-He's got a face?

I know I am.

also I worked at dawn.

Everybody in their position.
