You and them boys didn't get no spray
in that field.
- They'll get to it first thing in the morning.
- They better.
Fella said, "Why you beating
on the back of that truck?"
He says, "I got a two-ton truck and four
tons of canaries. I gotta keep half flyin'."
How's the whiskey business, Gator?
You make it, Mr Simms. I haul it.
Hey, boy, you ain't been drag-racin'
my sedan again, have you?
Tell you what,
you keep me working on that car,
you're gonna blow everybody
right out of the tub.
Can I have one of those?
Boy, you better get your shirt on.
You got a visitor over at the office.
- Your cousin. She's got bad news for you.
It ain't your mama or your daddy, Gator.
Donny was killed.
I drove up 'cause I knew
you'd wanna know.
Your mama didn't wanna come.
She sends her love, Gator.
Shoot! There's no way
to make it any better.
Donny was killed down in Bogan County.
Who killed him, Louella?
They're not sure.
They found him in the lake. There was
another kid from school with him.
I don't know what the hell you're talking
about. Donny didn't run liquor.
Your daddy thinks
it was on account of the sheriff.
- The sheriff?
- He thinks it was on account of...
...kids he hung out with.
All them protesting.
All them damn hippies.
Gator! How long you gonna sit there, boy?
Five days. Mr Simms said you go
and get yourself on over to the shop.
Mr Simms done give you
and all you
son of a guns think you got to do
is just make moonshine liquor and don't
give a damn about nothin' or nobody...
Gator, where in the hell
you think you're goin'?
Look like you gonna dig me a ditch
all the way to Memphis, Gator.
You did your time pretty good up to here.
You only got one more year to go.
Two ways you can do it: hard or easy.
Bill, get them boys started
about 50 yards on up the field.
Move it out.
Put down that shovel.
You listen to me, boy.
Ain't nothin' you, I or anybody else can do.
Your brother's dead
and you ain't goin' home for another year.
You can do your time easy,
that's all I'm saying.
I've seen a hell of a lot
of old boys come and go.
- Federal law got me in here, didn't it?
- What'd you say?
I said the federal law
got me in here, didn't it?
- You reckon it can get me out?
- What are you drivin' at?
Sheriff in Bogan County, what's his name?
J C Connors?
You know he's taking money
from the whiskey business, don't you?
I'll get evidence against him.
Boy, he runs Bogan County.
Yeah. But I'll nail his ass.
and wait outside.
Gator, this is Mr Cantrell.
Mr Cantrell, it's your wingding.
Sit down, Mr McKlusky.
Mr Simms tells us you want to cooperate
with the federal department.
Is that correct?
12 months remaining in your sentence.
making and transporting
- As you understand...
- I beg your pardon?
- Third offence.
First time I was 13.
If information related to federal income-tax
evasion or unpaid liquor tax is obtained,
it's within the policy of the government
to cooperate with state-prison officials.
We have a file on the Bogan County
sheriff. He's a damn tough cookie.
He's got several unsolved homicides going
for him, as well as other circumstances.
But our jurisdiction is only the manufacture
of untaxed, illegal whiskey.
If you haul from an illegal steal,
that's direct evidence.
If you see he receives money,
that's direct evidence.
If you can testify as to money paid
to the sheriff's department, that's evidence.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
