Now, the story goes

that John Denver,

he was playin'

at this little ol' place

called the cellar door

in Washington, DC--

around christmastime in 1970.

And his opening act

was this husband and wife duo

named bill danoff

and Taffy nivert.

And they called themselves

fat city.

That's kind of

a funny name.

Yeah, that is

kind of a funny name.


Uh, 5/8ths.

Now, one night they decide

to go on back to the house

and have a little jam session.

On the way

they got in an accident

and John Denver,

he broke his thumb.

When they finally

got back to the house

and bill and Taffy played him--

played John Denver this song

they'd been working on,

he flipped for it, man.

They worked on that thing

till dawn.


Flat head

or Phillips?


So that's why

you like the song.

Well, I like the song

because of the song.

I mean,

i guess I also like it

'cause it's got a story

behind it.

You know,

bill danoff later said

that he ain't never even

been to West Virginia.

Well, I like the song too,

but I don't really think

it'll work for the pageant.



or needle-nose?


Are you coming

to my rehearsal?


I'm gonna pick you up

right after work.

Just so you know, I asked

mommy if she and moody would

pay for your cell phone.

She said

even if they did,

you wouldn't take it.


she's right.

The only thing...

I need a cell phone for

is taking pictures of you.

Gun show.

Hey, daddy.


What you say, Cal?

Hey, Jimmy.

Come on in.

Shut that door,

would ya?


Have a seat.

Jimmy, I'm just gonna say it.

I gotta let you go.

Cal, i--

I didn't even do nothin'.

I know you didn't

do nothin'.

But last week,

someone in hr saw you leavin',

walkin' out to your truck,

and they saw

you was limping.


My leg ain't got nothin' to do

with driving that case.

I know that. I know.

But the folks

over in the big office,

they feel different,

and they said you didn't

list it on your paperwork

when you was first brought on.


And they're calling it

a "pre-existing condition"

and that it is

a liability issue.

Okay, this big then.

This big.

And you let me

drive my truck

around the track.


It's a four-wheel drive.

I can get 150--

purple lady,

you know my brother Jimmy?

Oh, Jimmy Logan.

That ballplayer

that was gonna be

a big deal?

Hey, purple lady.

My husband,

the major,

when he was still alive,

he loved lsu football.

Whenever they'd show the games

here local, we'd watch.

Course, for me it was

all about the uniforms.

Their jerseys are the most

striking shade of purple.


Yes, purple.

And gold.

Royal colors.


i got off early,

so I figured I'd take Sadie

on over to her dance thing

so you didn't have to drive her.

Well, that's great and all,

you wantin' to see your daughter

dance and everything,

but it was yesterday.


Excuse you!

I got her there fine,

by the way.

See, most people think

if you're gonna

go to Charleston,

then, duh, you get on

the 85 for danville,

then the i-19 to Charleston.

Fifty-four miles.

But being 4:
00 P.M., I knew--

not the best time of day

to be on the road.

And they're still doing

all that shoulder work

on the i-19.

Plus, then you got the sun

right in your eyes

for that whole stretch

outside of Julian.

So, yeah,

i took the 85 to danville,

but then I hopped onto the 3.

So instead of going up and over,

I'm going over and then up.

After that,

it was just a straight shot

on Daniel Boone parkway

all the way to marmet.

It sure sounds like

you love to drive.

It was just rehearsal.

Not like the real pageant.

But Bobbie Jo was not happy.

Why didn't you call me?

Tried, but your cell phone

seems to have been turned off.

You should pay your bills.

Everyone needs a cell phone.

I don't like 'em.

You one of them

unabomber types?

Yeah. I am

one of them

unabomber types.

See, I don't like people

tellin' me what to do,

like answer the phone.


Oh, this is gonna

be good.

Look, I'm sorry.

Okay? I'm sorry.

I thought it wa--

i knew it was 4:

I just thought

it was 4:
00 today.

That's the first time

you've used that excuse.

Look, I said I was sorry.

Mellie said y'all figured

it out just fine anyway.

She also tell you

that she got pulled over

goin' 30 miles

over the speed limit

with my daughter in the car?

That's our daughter.

Sadie said her aunt Mellie

worked her Mellie magic

and talked the cops

into not giving her a ticket.

So that's a real good

character-building experience

for our daughter to witness.

Don't laugh at me!

Yeah, yeah, whatever.

Forget it.

Wh-what's up with

the "for sale" sign

out there?

You didn't tell me

you and moody's

buyin' a new house.



What are you



Ow! Ow! Man!

Hey, me and your mama was just

talkin' about maybe me and you

goin' to get some ice cream.

I'm not allowed

ice cream anymore.

Says who?


She says it's got

too many calories

and that nobody

loves a fat girl.

You ain't fa--

I think that's

a little bit harsh.

This is some of that

co-parenting stuff

you and I need to talk about.

That Dr. Phil stuff.

Hey, Jimmy.

Hey, moody.

What's goin' on,


Thank you.

Hey! Hey, you two

don't settle down,

you ain't gon' get no mall!


will you come with?

I'm taking Sadie and the boys
