: Dancing's just a conversation between two people. Talk to me.
: At home we had a pet skunk. Mama used to call it Justin Matisse. Do you think that's just a coincidence? All day long she would to scream, "You stink Justin Matisse!" Then one day she just picked up a club and killed it. Justin Matisse
: Now that's a sad story. Bernice Pruitt
: If you liked the skunk, which we didn't.
: You smell just delicious, Justin, you wearin' cologne? Justin Matisse
: Naw, just sweat with a little paint thinner mixed in.
: Why don't you go down and get dressed? You gotta feel depressed looking like that.
: You look terrible! You been drinking? Birdee Pruitt
: Why does everybody keep asking me if I've been drinking? What? Is there like a coaster stuck to my... butt or something?
: Who's the architect? Justin Matisse
: You're kiddin', huh?... That's half the fun. Birdee Pruitt
: You go around Smithville paintin' houses, and you can do this? Justin Matisse
: Yeah. Birdee Pruitt
: You could... you could do so much more. Justin Matisse
: I guess so, huh? Birdee Pruitt
: You know what I meant. Justin Matisse
: I know exactly what you meant. You're talkin' 'bout the American Dream. You find something that you love, and then you twist it, and you torture it, try and find a way to make money at it. You spend a lifetime doing that. At the end, you can't find a trace of what you started out lovin'. What did you start out lovin'? Birdee Pruitt
: [very softly
] I don't remember. Justin Matisse
: For me it was doin' things right, that's all. That's why I came back here; so I could live the way I wanted. I don't know, I figured out of everybody, you'd understand that. Birdee Pruitt
: I do. I envy you. Everything you love is right here. Justin Matisse
: Not everything, Birdee.
