I think I love it.

You think you love it

or you love it?

I love it. Alot.

Thanks, Mum.

Happy Birthday.

Now, go thank your dad.

He picked the color.


Come here.

Happy Birthday.

I'm glad you like it.

Your Mum picked out the color.

I just nodded.

Thank God you're not a boy.

Let's go for a ride.

Hop on.

And wear that thing

you're best sharp breaking it in.

My dad used to say that a man...

in your case of view

for young woman,

doesn't chooses a hat,

the hat chooses him, or her.

You see, your hat defines you

just what color the person wears it.

I guess, that makes you a purple person.

Whatever that means.

Here comes trouble.

- Donald.

- Howdy, Jack.

- Rita.

- Hey.

Just in time to help me

rip some reelings.

The old Tom Sawyer ploy.

No, sir, I'm too smart

to be tricked into hard work

by you or Mark Twain.

- Sweet tea?

- My favorite.

That's what makes the drive

out here worthwhile.

But, you know, I feel

a little bit disappointed.

because I've been here,

oh, over a minute,

Jack here hasn't invited to go

duck hunting with him yet.

How are we gonna do that, Donald?

You shot them all last year.

That I did.

Thank you, darling.

What do you think?


Wow, really pretty.

When I get my iPhone,

I'm gonna get a cover that matches it.

Megan, go grap some apples

and fresh milk for Donald.

Well, um...

Me being the new

President of Chaney Bank.

I guess, you both know

what this business is about.

Oh darn it, Jack.

Rita, this is hard for me.

Ever since Brett Chaney

bought the bank,...

well, you know how he likes

to throw his weight around.

I'm still trying to get my head around

someone buying a bank.

Uh huh.

Like father, like son.

My dad never have much time

for old man Chaney.

It's changing world, Jack.

Not always for the better.

Well, young Brett is cleaning

house over the bank

and he's cracking down hard

on entirety debt.

- Now, you missed..

- We know.

Three payments.

That puts you $11,100 behind.

That's big number.

We can just have

a little more time,

- we can..

- 90 days in arrear is their limit, Rita.

Another miss month and

Chaney will foreclose on you.

What did I miss?

Now, I am sure you heard that

Brett Chaney is the new

owner of the bank.

He's gonna bring some of that

uh, east-cost the big city financial

learning to our once quiet community.

Just what we need.

Well, he says his roots are here.

He calls it "giving back".

He's talking big changes

and poor Donald DeBris

has become his foot soldier.

Come on.

We're gonna get going.

This one on our bill.

Uh, they're probably talking about us.


You know, I actually think

they're talking about their son, Ross,

who happens to be chatting up

your lovely daughter over there.

Ha ha...

How are things at the farm?

It is a small town pastor.

It's no secret that we're struggling.

Yeah. Milk prices are down and

water, fertilizer, fuel are all sky high.


things will turn around.

You just keep the faith.

If Dad were alive,

he'd know what to do.

He'd stop all those farming and milking,...

get back to horse ranching.

Oh, that would be great if

it makes any economic sense.

Horses are for hobby and not for business.

I keep telling Jack,

We need a smarter crop.

We need a high-dollar crop

that makes good use of our land

instead of growing alfalfa

to feed livestock.

This is not the place to be elienating..

Well, I-I didn't mean to rock

the arc, so to speak.

- I was just..

- It's okay.

Listen, you two have a fine day.

And don't you be

too tough on him.


Umm, Mum, Dad, this is Ross.

Hi, Mrs. Shepard.

Uh, I got something for you, Mr. Shepard.

So, you heard my Dad is sponsoring

a big horse race.

Somebody is gonna win big.

If you got a fast horse,

it could be worth your while.

Hello. I am Belinda Chaney.

I don't believe we've met.

Well, not officially,

but I've seen you at the feed store.

Oh, right, right.

You're the people who milk cows, right?

Well, we are one of

the suppliers for Milner dairy.

Oh, we gave up dairy years ago.

We are soy all the way now.

Brett Chaney, and you are?

Jack Shepard.

This is my wife, Rita,...

our daughter, Megan.


I see you got one of our flyers

We're just getting started.

I'm gonna this race big,

Turning it into a yearly event.

Put our little hometown on the map.


Milner could use a makeover, right?

Little nipstick on the pig, so to speak.

Uh huh.

I don't know.

I kind of like Milner the way it is.

We are a little old fashion.

Well, we're here to bring

some new fashion.

- Uh huh.

- Boost the town's bottom line.

What are all those doing

in your hands still, Ross?

Your job is to hand them out.

All of them.

I'll call you.



my phone

got turned off.

It's just temporary, darling.

Til things get better.

Any of those left in your hands

by the time we get to the escalade,

you're walking home.

You folks have a nice day.


I think that Chaney boy has

head over heels for you.

What are you drawing?

Our field. I figure out

row counting plant spacing.

I have an idea.

About what?

About the alternative crop.

I've been studying up on it.

What crop?


There is good money on it.

- Wheatgrass?

- Uh huh.

Wheat is a grass.

Help me out here.

No, there is a difference. Trust me,

I think this might be our answer.
