Hey route 23 gonna

take you to a good life

You have never seen

Reading, writing

Hey roads to the north

To the luxury and comfort

gold miner can afford

Reading, writing

Hey route 23 gonna

take you to a good job

In the city factory

- Good boy, that's a good boy.


Vernon you up there?

Oh you better not be doing

something up there you're

not supposed to.

Vernon you know I can hear you up here.

- Do you know we're in a

Mercury retrograde right now?

- What the f*** did you just say?

- Mercury retrograde, it's weird,

whenever Mercury goes

retrograde communication gets

really f***ed up.

I mean cars break down,

sometimes relationships break up.

I mean I think it's kinda

weird that we're going

to Black Hill during one of these times.

- Peyton what are you talking about?

You know witchcraft it's nonsense.

- No Sally it's not it's just

her religion like any other.

You know back home I

used to study Santeria

and you won't believe

how many people actually

believes in that like

voodoo, witchcraft, Santeria,

blah, blah, blah, it's crazy

but you know they take it

very seriously actually.

- You know there's a full

moon out tonight right?

- Oh so what does that mean?

Is one of us going to grow

fangs and start barking

at the moon?

- Well if sh*t hits the fan this weekend,

don't try to say I didn't warn you.

- Mon dieu this is ridiculous.

My god!

Get out of here.

I have had it with you

it is the last time!

Good morning Miss Ellie.

- Huh!

- I said good morning Miss Ellie!

- Oh hello Miss Claudette.

- Did you hear what happened yesterday?

- I heard he bagged himself

another one last night, ohh!

- Well sheriff told me not

to run me mouth about it,

but he sure did.

- That damned sheriff better

bring that retard in before

he's the death of all of us.

- Well maybe the sheriff feel

like he owe the boy something

after he tried to save Vernon.

Don't Miss Ellie anybody with

half a brain would know that

Vernon was just a murderer in the making.

- Don't I know that too.

But listen here we better keep

this just between ourselves.

Don't want the sheriff

getting wind of what we're

talking about.

- But Miss Ellie it just

tears me up and all,

knowing that that boy

out there running rampant

in them woods.

- I'll have the usual.

- Well Miss Ellie this

must be your lucky day.

That will be three dollars.

- Well I better be going, I

gotta get home I got work to do.

That damned daughter-in-law

of mine she don't do nothing.

Curtains are dirty, dishes ain't done,

just sits on her backside

all day and does nothing.

Stupid b*tch.

- Charlie we are in the

middle of bum f*** nowhere,

you said we were going

camping not searching

for f***ing inbreds.

- Ok Porter don't worry about it,

everybody goes camping here it's fine

- Yeah and then they end up

over the spit in some mutants

backyard barbecue.

I've always dreamed of getting

roasted over an open fire.

This is fantastic, this is

great, this is fantastic.

- Ok I'm hanging up now.

Ok how's that?

Good, I know, yeah alright, bye.

Ok we are never taking Porter

on another camping trip again.
