  • Mother  

    Did you understand the moral of the play, my dear?

  • Young Girl  

    Oh,sure, ma. Did you see how he kissed her?

  • Mother  

    Yes! I hardly thought that was in the best of taste!

  • Joe  

    I gits weary / An' sick o' tryin' / I'm tired o' livin' / An' scared o' dyin' / But Ol' Man River / He jes' keeps rollin' along!

  • Steve  

    You wouldn't call a man a white man that had Negro blood in him, would you?

  • The Sheriff  

    No, I wouldn't; not in Mississippi. One drop of Negro blood makes you a Negro in these parts!

  • Joe  

    I just shell them peas.

  • Queenie  

    You ain't pickin' them up.

  • Joe  

    No, but I could've if you didn't. I could do a lotta things if it was necessary.

  • Queenie  

    Then why don't you?

  • Joe  

    It ain't necessary.

  • Parthy  

    I could say that my name was Bonaparte, and show you Napoleon's tomb; that wouldn't make him my grandfather would it?
