Gail: Thank God it's you, Sweet Pea, and not Floyd's mommy and daddy again. Them two watch me like I done something wrong.
Floyd: Hush your mouth about them. They put a roof over your head, ain't they?
Ree: Hey, Floyd. You gonna invite me in? Or I could just stay out here and talk to you.
Floyd: Yeah, you can come in.
Ree: Hey. Shit.
Gail: Don't start. C'mon. It's been a while, Sweet Pea. Things stack up, is all. What's going on?
Ree: The Sheriff came by looking for Dad. If he don't show up for his court date, we're gonna lose the house. I gotta get down to the Arkansas line.
Gail: I gotta ask him. It's his truck. He said no.
Ree: Did you tell him I'd spring for gas?
Gail: I told him. He still won't.
Ree: Why not?
Gail: He never says why not to me, Ree. He just says no.
Ree: Man, that's so sad to hear you say he won't let you do something and then you don't do it.
Gail: It's different once you're married.
Ree: It really must be because you ain't never used to eat no shit.
Gail: Ned needs his nap. Come here.
Victoria: What brings you here? Somebody dead?
Ree: I'm looking for my Dad.
Victoria: Come on in. Shake off the chill. Let's keep it quiet. Teardrop's still laying up in bed.
Ree: The law came by today. Dad signed over everything to his bond. Victoria, I really gotta run Dad down to get him to show.
Teardrop: You ought not do that. Don't go running after Jessup. Show or don't show, that choice is up to the one going to jail, not you.
Ree: You know where he's at, don't you?
Teardrop: Where a man's at ain't necessarily for you to know, neither.
Ree: But you do.
Teardrop: I ain't seen him.
Ree: Could be running around with Little Arthur and them, you think?
Teardrop: Don't you ever go down around Little Arthur's asking them people about shit they ain't offering to talk about. That's a real good way to end up bit by hogs...or wishing you was.
Ree: We're all related, ain't we?
Teardrop: Our relations get watered kind of thin between here and Little Arthur's.
Victoria: You know all those people, Teardrop. You could ask--
Teardrop: Shut up.
Victoria: None of them's gonna be in a great big hurry to tangle with you.
Teardrop: I said shut up once already with my mouth.
Ree: Jesus. Dad's your only brother.
Teardrop: You think I forgot that? Hm? Jessup and me run together for coming on 40 years, but I don't know where he's at, and I ain't gonna go around asking after him, neither.
Victoria: Ree, you still planning to join the Army?
Ree: No, I don't think I can anymore. Listen.
Teardrop: Hm? No.
Victoria: She needs help.
Teardrop: Nope. Listen. Listen. You tell that girl to stay close to home. Don't move. Give her this. You send her ass on her way right now.
Victoria: Teardrop says you best keep your ass real close to the willows, dear. He hopes this helps. Here's a doobie for your walk.
Ree: Thank you.
