Petey Greene (over the P.A.): Yo, I was reading my court papers the other day, y’all. They say, “Ralph Waldo ‘Petey’ Greene versus the United States of America.” I say, “Goddamn! No wonder I’m up in this motherfucker!” So I’m gonna dedicate this next one to my baby. Man, she gonna be up here in a minute, and this gal, Lord have mercy, she’s fine as frog’s hair, yeah. So while this is playing, I want y’all to think about the one y’all love. And I’m talking about the one sends you them pictures, man, not the cat in the next bunk.
Milo Hughes: [laughs]
Dewey Hughes: I guess you’re pretty hard up for entertainment around here.
Milo Hughes: Yeah, man. This is prison.
Lucy: “They perched in silence. ‘How can we be so diff. . diff…diff. . .” I don’t know that word.
Sam: Yes, you do. That’s the word that starts with a “D.”
Lucy: I’m tired.
Sam: I don’t believe you.
Lucy: Are you calling me a liar?
Sam: Yes. I think you have to read the word.
Sam: Yeah, you have to read that word.
Sam: Yeah. Here it is. There’s the picture where they’re all perched. Now read the word.
Lucy: No! I won’t read the word!
Sam: I’m your father and I’m telling you to read the word. I can tell you to because I’m your father.
Lucy: I’m stupid.
Sam: You are not stupid.
Lucy: Yes, I am.
Sam: You are not stupid, because you can read that word.
Lucy: I don’t want to read it if you can’t.
Sam: No, because it makes me happy. It makes me happy hearing you read. Yeah. It makes me happy when you’re reading.
Lucy: “They perched in silence for a long time. ‘How can we be so different and feel so much alike?’
mused Flitter. ‘How can we feel so different and be so much alike?’ wondered Pip. ‘I think this is quite a mystery.”‘
Sam: Keep going.
Ashoke Ganguli: The camera! It is in the car. All this and no picture, huh? We just have to remember it then. Huh? Will you remember this day, Gogol?
Gogol: How long do I have to remember it?
Ashoke Ganguli: Ah, remember it always. Remember that you and I made the journey and went together to a place where there was nowhere left to go.
