Ben : I brung her to this dance and I ain't going to have nobody runnin' her down.
Thursday Ragan : I don't aim to have words with none of my kin in public. I mean no offense against this young 'un, but you're the one that seemed ashamed to say her name, not me.
Thursday Ragan : If you'd a minded me, and kept outen that swamp like I told you Ben, you wouldn't be in no fix like you're in... What's the matter boy?
Ben : If you'll be giving me my clothes, I'll be takin' myself offen your hands.
Thursday Ragan : No, you won't - you'll be quiet now. You're sick Ben.
Ben : I ain't so sick I have to lay here and listen to you give me down the country. I knowed that was all you drug me out of that crick for.
Thursday Ragan : I drug you out because you was my boy.

Ben : Back in the swamp.

Ben : We got him with a load of buckshot.
Tim Dorson : Oh, so you was with somebody.
Ben : I mean me and my dog.
Tim Dorson : I knowed you had a smart dog, Ben, but I never heard he could handle a shotgun.
Ben : I never in my life asked for no kiss, always just took 'em. I'll be dogged if I ain't asking you now, Julie.
