Bobby Lee Hagg:"Hey Jake? You leavin'?" Jake Rainey:"Yeah. I don't feel to good. I ate to much of that damn hog." Bobby Lee laughs. Jake Rainey:"Bobby Lee?" Bobby Lee:"Hmm?" Jake Rainey:"Try talkin' old Jesse into comin' in with us. I don't want no trouble with him. I've known Jesse all my life." Bobby Lee:"Well, I don't think it'll do much good Jake.

Bobby Lee Hagg:"You know what that is?" Jake Rainey:"It looks like a jug of whiskey." Bobby Lee Hagg:"Well, that's a model T Ford. A Winchester Rifle." Jake Rainey:"Oh?" Bobby Lee Hagg: Pats Grady Hagg in the stomach.)"What is it?" Grady Hagg:"A Witney Cotton Gin." Bobby Lee Hagg:"Mmmhmm." Jake Rainey:"Ok come on boys. What is this?" Bobby Lee Hagg:"One of a kind that's what. That there is Jesse Hagg's 2 year old whiskey." Jake Rainey:"Oh that's fine. The best made. That's the best there is." Bobby Lee Hagg:"That's right. The last time you saw Jesse, you threatened him." Jake Rainey:"I liked Jesse. He-" Bobby Lee Hagg:"You threatened him! Jake, me an' you an' Grady, we got a problem." Jake Rainey:"Oh." Bobby Lee Hagg:"Me an' Grady, we never been able to get our s*** together. That's one hell of a problem. An' you, you that wouldn't know class if you had a mouthful, figured you could get the class yer after, runnin' over toppa everybody. That's your problem. 'Cause of these two problems, Jesse's dead." Jake Rainey:"I'm sorry Jesse's dead. He-" Bobby Lee Hagg:"But that is changin'. Me an' Grady, we're gonna become businessmen." Jake Rainey:"Oh God!" Bobby Lee Hagg:"That's right. An' we gonna deliver every drop of Jesse's whiskey the way he wanted it done. Undiluted, uncorrupted, and untaxed. And we're gonna get back to doin' what we do best." Grady Hagg:"Which is screwin' up just about everything we touch." Jake Rainey:"Now you boys listen. I liked Jesse Hagg as much as any man in this world. But he's gone now, an' I'm sorry. But I meant what I said before. Ain't nobody movin' a drop around here, unless I say so. Nothin's changed." Bobby Lee Hagg:"Yeah it has!" Grady Hagg:"Jake. Yer lookin' at the competition." Bobby Lee Hagg:"An' we gonna roll right over you!"(He pats Grady and they walk out.)

Jake Rainey:"Jesse. This is my final offer." Uncle Jesse Hagg:"How many final offers are you gonna make?" Jake Rainey:"Now I ain't foolin' around. This is business on the barrel head. I wanna buy yer entire stock at $14 per gallon. In advance, cash right now." Bobby Lee Hagg:"$14 per gallon. Hell Jesse, that's double." Jake Rainey:"I was talkin' to Jesse." Uncle Jesse Hagg:"You wouldn't pay double fer water if you was dyin' a thirst. Now what's goin' on?" Jake Rainey:"Well, this syndicate trash, now they, damn syndicate wants a full shipment by Saturday. An' I ain't got but about half of it. Jesse, if you'd sell me yer total supply, that would more than do it. What do you say?" Uncle Jesse Hagg:"I'm sorry Jake. I'd like to help you be a big shot an' all. But I just can't do it. My feelings ain't changed. I don't want my stuff mixed at any price." Jake Rainey:"I ain't gonna mix it!" Uncle Jesse Hagg:"You know damn well you will!" Jake Rainey:"Jesse. God oh mighty, I'm offerin' you double!" Uncle Jesse Hagg:"I'm sorry. It's not the money, no." Jake Rainey:"No. It's yer pride. Yer stupid! Damn. Damn. Ok. I come over here, beg, plead, offer double, lower myself. Jesse, you ain't gonna move one drop!" Grady Hagg:"Here we go again." Uncle Jesse Hagg:"Fer the last month I've not heard anything out of you except threats. Now you git outta here, before I sick my dogs on you! They like hog meat Jake! Jake, I'm deliverin' a load to Florence! Neither you, yer drivers, yer syndicate, or yer truck stop whores is gonna stop us! Now git outta here."
