[Farm machinery salesroom, Texas. This is an Allis Chalmers dealership. Lureen and her father, Hog-Boy Tyler, are in discussion. Through the window we see Jack outside, gabbing with a cowboy. They are laughing. Hog-Boy plays the Texas good-ol-boy to the hilt.]
[Coughs, chews on a big cigar. He has a thick Texas accent.]
Rodeo bullrider! Where do you find ‘em?
What happened to the guy that made dulcimers?
And the sanger? He was the worst sanger in the world. Never saw him small once. He had a main disposition.
This rodeo boy is puny. At least he ain’t some kind a mewsician. [coughs]
And you want me to give him a job?
He’s smart, Daddy. And I like him.
I know he’s a little rough,
but he can talk rodeo and ranch with anybody.
