Shut the door.

What do you want?

I have a job for you.

What kind of job?

It's heavy work.


We'll need another man.

- When do you want it done?

- Some night soon.

- Where?

- The graveyard.

Unless you're afraid.

The job pays two dollars.

Take it or leave it.

I'll take it.

But the job pays

three dollars.

Unless you think

I deserve more.

No. Three dollars

seems fair enough. Yep.

to skin you alive.

Sneaking out 'til all hours!

Worrying a body to death!

Yeah. Shall I get

I swore to your mama, my own sister,

on her deathbed that I would raise you proper.

- And you're doin' a fine job.

I know I am not doing

my duty by you.

I have got to do something,

and I ain't got the heart to hit you.

Now sit.
