How are you?

I'm good.

Oh, gosh,

it's good to see you.

What brings you to town?

I'm just visiting my folks

Hi, there.

Hey. Mrs. Pope, I want

to introduce you to my wife.

This is Linda.


- Maggie.


to meet you.

Nice to meet you.


I heard about the wedding.

Oh, thank you.

So how do you all

know each other?


Um, Tom knew my son.

Oh, do I know him?


Help me!

Help me.

Stay back.

Stay back.

Give her space.

Watch her head.


call 911.

Hold her head up.

Hold her head.

Call 911 now!

It's okay;

hold her head up.

Yes, we need an ambulance

at Glen Owl Market.

There's a girl

having a seizure.


All right.

There she goes.

Just take deep breaths.

Honey, you're doing

just fine.

Are they coming?

They're on their way.

She got in here

before I had a chance to see

what they dropped off.

I'm going

to find Hope.

I don't know

where the hell she is,

but I'm gonna find her,

I swear to you.

Let's try this

one more time.

Where is she?

I don't know

where Hope is.

Come on, Red.

It's me.

I told you

everything I know.

Okay, Carl, untie him.

Let the man have a drink.

Thank you.

Can I have a smoke?

Well, I don't see

why not.

Okay, tough guy.

Where is she?

Baby sister,

There's never going to be

a better time to sell.

I don't want to sell.

Look, there's a window

of opportunity right now.

It's my home.

I raised my family there.

John Stanton

at the bank says

that that road

is going to come through.

And he's got a developer

who will pay us cash tomorrow

if we sell together.

I don't know why we're talking

about this again.

You do what you want

with your part.

Mary Margaret,

make sense.

I mean, that development's

going to happen

whether we like it

or not.

I am going to sell

my half.

But we can get triple

if we both sell.

Is this what you want

or what Nancy Kaye wants?

It's what we both want.

Look, I'm just trying to do

what's best for you,

what's best

for all of us.

Think about moving

where me and Nancy Kaye live.

I mean, there's

a great subdivision.

Got three-bedroom houses

with central air and a pool.

It's manageable, honey.

And you might meet


How long's it been

since you danced?

Do you remember

when you loved to dance?

I don't want to sell,



Look who's here.

Howdy hi.

The prices down here

are so cheap.

You two got finished

with your little talk?

I don't like getting involved

in discussions

involving money.

I don't have a head

for finances,

do I, Georgie?

Oh, Maggie,

you look tired.

You know what you need?

Let me see.

A manicure.

Oh, yeah,

brighten up your day.

Hey, you know what?

We got to get going

if we're going to get

to clogging tonight.

We got to practice.
