View Quote Blond Milton: Ree, I know losing Jessup leaves y'all hurting over there. I know it's a lot to handle.
Ree: We'll make do.
Blond Milton: Sonya and me talked about it. We feel we could take Sonny off your hands. Not Ashlee, I don't reckon, but we could take Sonny.
Ree: You what?
Blond Milton: We could take him and raise him up the rest of the way.
Ree: My ass you will.
Blond Milton: We'd raise that boy way better than you and that nutjob mama of yours can. Maybe on down the line, we'd take Ashlee, too.
Ree: You go straight to hell, you son of a bitch. Sonny and Ashlee will die living in a cave with me and mama before they spend one night with you.
View Quote Blond Milton: This right here is the last place me or anybody seen Jessup.
Ree: He never blew no lab before.
Blond Milton: I know, but something must have jumped wrong this time.
Ree: He's known for never ****ing up labs or cooking bad batches. He's known for knowing what he's doing.
Blond Milton: Well, you cook long enough, this is bound to happen.
Ree: You're sayin' dad's up there burnt to a crisp?
Blond Milton: That's what I'm saying.
Ree: [starting to climb out of the truck] I'm going up there for a look.
Blond Milton: [pulling her back] No! That shit's poison. It'll rip the skin off your bones.
Ree: If dad's up there, I'm bringing him home to bury.
View Quote Gail: [about borrowing her husband's 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. Cause you ain’t never used to eat no shit.
View Quote Little Arthur: You want a line?
Ree: No.
Little Arthur: You wanna blow some smoke?
Ree: No.
[Little Arthur slaps the table and stands up]
Little Arthur: Then I guess I got nothing for you. [He waves his hand to dismiss them] Go on!
View Quote Megan: Don’t tell nobody it was me who told you this, okay? But you’re going to have to go on up the hill and ask for a talk with Thump Milton. Now, I hope he’ll talk with you - he generally won’t.
Ree: That man, scares me way more than the rest.
Megan: Well, scared ain’t a bad way to be about him, neither, hon. He’s my own granpaw, and I still make damn sure I never piss him off none.
View Quote Megan: What are we ever gonna do with you, baby girl?
Ree: Kill me, I guess.
Megan: That idea has been said already. Got any others?
Ree: Help me. Ain’t nobody said that idea yet, have they?
Megan: I tried to help you some before, and this is what come of it.
View Quote Merab: He ain’t likely to have time for you, child.
Ree: I’ve got to talk to him. If he don’t know, nobody does.
Merab: Nope. Talking just causes witnesses. And he don’t want for any of those.
Ree: I’ll wait.
Merab: You need to get yourself on home.
Merab: Thump knows you were in the valley, child. With Megan. And at Little Arthur’s. He knows what you want to ask, and he don’t want to hear it.
Ree: And that’s it? He ain’t gonna say nothing to me?
Merab: If you’re listening, child, you got your answer.
Ree: So, I guess come the nut-cutting, blood don’t really mean shit to the big man. Am I understanding that right?
Merab: Don’t you dare. Don’t! I want you to listen to me, child. You need to turn around, and get yourself on home. Don’t you make me come out here and tell you again!
View Quote Merab: You ain’t here for trouble, are you?
Ree: No, ma’am.
Merab: Cause one of my nephews is Buster Leroy, and didn’t he shoot your daddy one time?
Ree: Yes’m, but that ain’t got nothing to do with me. They settled all that theirselves, I think.
Merab: Shooting him likely settled it. What is it you want?
Ree: I got a real bad need to talk with Thump.
Merab: And he ain’t got no need to talk to you.
[Merab turns away towards her doorway]
Ree: But I need to. I really, really got to ma’am. Please!
[Merab turns around to face Ree]
Ree: Some of our blood at least is the same. Ain’t that s’posed to mean somethin’ - isn’t that what is always said?
Merab: [irritated] Ain’t you got no men could do this?
Ree: No, Ma’am, I don’t.
View Quote Ree: What I really can’t stand is how I feel so ashamed--for Dad.
Teardrop: Well, he loved y’all. That’s where he went weak. Lots of us can be tough, plenty tough enough, and do it for a long stretch, too.
Ree: But snitching.
Teardrop: For lots’n lots of years he wasn’t. He wasn’t, he wasn’t, and then one day he was.
Ree: You always have scared me.
Teardrop: That’s cause you’re smart.
View Quote Satterfield: I'm Mike Satterfield, A1 Bonds.
Ree: What is it you want?
Satterfield: We hold the bond on Jessup Dolly. Now he's a runner, it looks like.
Ree: Dad ain't no runner.
Satterfield: He didn't show for court. That makes him a runner.
View Quote Satterfield: Look, I don't want to kick your dad's ass, all right? I just want to keep the judge off mine.
Ree: Dad's dead. He didn't show for court 'cause he's lyin' dead somewhere.
Satterfield: When was the last time you saw him?
Ree: A couple weeks.
Satterfield: Who's he running around with? Where they all hanging out?
Ree: He doesn't tell me that stuff, sir.
Satterfield: Now, you know I got the legal right to go in there hunting the man, anyplace I want.
Ree: I know you'd be wasting your time and pissing me off. Jessup Dolly is dead. He’s lying in a crappy grave somewhere or become piles of shit in a hog pen. Maybe he’s been left out plain in the open, but wherever he is, he’s there dead.
Satterfield: And you know this how?
Ree: You must’ve heard what Dolly’s are, ain’t you, mister?
Satterfield: Well, I’ve heard what some are anyhow, and I have bonded a few.
Ree: I’m a Dolly, bred’n buttered, and that’s how I know Dad’s dead.
Satterfield: How old are you?
Ree: Seventeen.
View Quote Sheriff Baskin: I didn't shoot the other night cuz you were there in the truck. He never backed me down.
Ree: It looked to me like he did.
Sheriff Baskin: Don't you let me hear that's a story gettin' around.
Ree: I don't talk much about you, man. Ever.
View Quote Sonny: Are you wanting to leave us?
Ree: I'd be lost without the weight of you two on my back. I ain't goin' anywhere.
View Quote Sonny: Maybe they'll share some of that with us.
Ree: That could be.
Sonny: Maybe we should ask.
Ree: Never ask for what oughta be offered.
View Quote Teardrop: What Jessup done was against our ways, he knew it, I know it, and I ain’t raised no stink at all about whatever became of him. But she ain’t my brother. She’s about all the close family I got left, so I’ll be collecting her now and carrying her on out of here to home. That suit you, Thump?
Thump Milton: You’re gonna stand for her, are you?
Teardrop: If she does wrong, you can put it on me.
Thump Milton: She’s now yours to answer for.
Teardrop: This is a girl who ain’t gonna tell nobody nothing.
