I thought y'all weren't moving till next week?
Yeah, well, what's the point?
Unless you got some magic beans that'll grow
10 acres of cotton by morning we're leaving.
No reason for us to stay here.
I'm truly sorry to hear about that.
Rufus, come on, boy.
Rufus is pretty torn up.
This is the only place he's ever known.
I don't know.
You ever feel like your life's been cursed, Del?
Come on, Kurt, it ain't no curse.
What is it then?
We've re-soiled, replanted,
sprayed everything we know to spray.
The same thing, year after year.
Marge even tried the church.
Not just on Sundays neither.
She said the plague is biblical, Kurt.
It might help to be humble.
I'm humbled alright.
I'm done, Del.
At least the mayor took it off our hands.
Gave us enough for a fresh start
and helped us clear it at the bank.
I left my good moonshine in the shed over there for him.
It was the least I could do.
Get you a jug if you want it.
We'll see ya, Del.

Hey, I really do appreciate that escort.
Thank you so much.
It wasn't an escort, Mayor Kane.
I guess you knew you were speeding.
Well, of course I was speeding.
I had to get to the lamppost revel!
They're gonna throw a fit if I don't get over there, so.
Also didn't pull over for five miles,
which is another violation.
Are you serious right now?
As God is my witness, Delmore,
I had no idea you were trying to pull me over.
Hell, I saw you in the rear view and I thought,
look at that, Sarge is going to the reveal.
Biggest thing in town since the bench reveal.
The law's the law.
What do you say we take of this ticket
right here between the two of us, hmm?
Hey Mayor, are you comin'?
I'll be right there.
Well, why don't we just call it a warning?
Well, I have just got to be on my way,
but it has been a pleasure doing business with you.
Thank you so much for coming out today.
Isn't this something else?
Would you look at that beautiful thing?
I haven't seen anything so well-constructed
since the Statue of Liberty, and that is saying something,
cause that thing was made out of copper
and sent over from France.
Maybeleen, you are a vision, as usual.
I'm gonna leave my husband any second.
You just say the word, Del.
You know I have to mind my Ps and Qs so he don't fire me.
Well, the least you can do
is come to dinner on Thursday night.
I'm as bored as a cat can be.
Maybeleen I'd have to get back to you about that.
Come on, Del!
Salisbury steak, gravy, and I make real cornbread,
none of that store-bought junk!
I appreciate the invite, but.
Del, we're like family!
You can just drop by anytime!
How could anybody say no to that face.
Ooh, I'm so glad to see
you still got some good sense!
Ah, Mayor's security boy's over there.
He's over there flirtin' with Boozer.
You should see if the mayor would hire you too, Boozer.
I get private sick benefits!
The money's good.
The mayor gave me a free pistol.
The best part, check it.
Kane Rock Security.
It's a special unit.
Oh, yeah, the mayor's always trying
to get me to see his special unit.
'Cause it's a great unit!
I'm telling ya!
-I'll bet. - Mhmm.
Sir, I came in early today hopin' you'd share
some of your wisdom if that's okay with you.
