Don't you stand there! Get in!

Are you crazy? You'll get us killed! Get out of here!

You gotta get in the car immediately!

We did it, we did it.

I planned the whole thing and it worked.

You're out, you're free. Hey, come on,

aren't you happy? Aren't you gonna thank me?

Yeah, thanks a lot. I got parole on Friday.

Well, I could use a good fried chicken dinner.

If you do just exactly like I tell you

we'll get us a fried chicken.

Put your stuff down here, right there.

Go on.

All right.


- Go!

- What? I'm going. You go on!

Lokk what I'm doing.


Good looking dog you got there. Is he friendly?

No, he ain't.

Tchicky, tchicky, tchicky.

Here, tchicky tchicky, come on.

I am looking for kinfolk. The name's Tolliver.

- Wait, what's the name?

- Tolliver.

- Never heard of 'em.

- What's up, Ma? - Don't bother.

They moved out here out of Oklahoma about a year ago.

No, Pa, I think there's a weasel in the henhouse again.

Whatch this. What's he running for?


You can't even grab us a lousy chicken.

You can't even do a simple thing like that.

I'm alergic to chickens and I'm scared of chickens.

Nobody's scared of a chicken.

Well, I am.

You're pathetic.

They made a big mistake when they put in a job.

They've should send you up to a funny-farm.

Quit to bitchen and eat your dinner.

I spend

two whole years

planning what I was gonna do when I got out,

and this ain't what I was intended to do.

Well, you're out and you're free.

Free? You call this free?

Lord, I hate this mess.

What is this mess anyway?



Where did you get a rabbit?

Off the highway.

You scraped up a squashed rabbit off the road

and you fed it to me? Are you crazy?

It was warm. It's fresh meet, Al.

If you wanna cook, you cook!

Dude, give me a great reason or something...

This is just great!

Here goes another night without dinner.

It's funny, ain't it?

Half of us won't starve to death.

Another head just stuck in the gut.

The lord heat us poor beggars at all.

That faithful afternoon my father said to him:

"Governer, if that's your decision, fine,

but you'll regret it."

Judge Collier, you knew my father very well.

A very good man.

You've missed the amusing part, which was

that my father hadn't never ... against him.


What you're doing here?

I want my mommy.

Go back to your room. I'll call your mom.

At which point Governer Pearce changed his entire campaign,

not knowing what dad was up to.

I mean, it was a brilliant piece of political maneuver,

but I don't think it was exactly what he wanted.

Dad said...

What is it, Joan?

Oh, it's Savannah. She wants me to say good night to her.

But, Joan, he's right in the middle of his story.

That's odd.

Monique, give her 25 cents for her piggy bank.

Tell her I'm up as quick as I can.

- Please, Richard, continue your story.

- Oh, yes, please.

My dad convinced him to change his campaign, and he did,

and dad ran against him and won.

That's wonderful.

- Tomorrow I'll be getting trouble.

- Trouble?

You havn't fot half the trouble I've got.

The race for the senate seat was probably

the culmination of a lifelong dream.

Here's to you.

Damn right.

- I'm going to teach my mother a lesson.

- Me, too.

I'm just waiting for one more thing to happen.

- Me, too.

- Spanky.

What do you want now?

I'm about to have dancing lessons and so are you.

- Mom said so.

- Dancing lessons?

That's terrible.

- They won't hold me. Are you with me?

- You can count on me. We can fix that.

We'll talk to you later. Okay.

- Good night.

- Thank you. - Bye.
