Emmett Foley (Character)
from Chattahoochee (1989)
Dr. Debner: Why did you do it, Mr. Foley? Why did you want to be dead?
Emmett Foley: [from the off] What could I say? I couldn't bring myself to tell him the real reason. Couldn't even tell you, my own sister.
Emmett Foley: [almost asking] The neighbors.
[smiles a bit]
Emmett Foley: They're real pushy. Always asking Mae to take them everyplace. All the time. Which is all right. They began to do it regular. I mean, almost every day. Two or three times, "Take me here, take me there." Got to where she had no time at all, like being some kind of taxi. Finally, I put my foot down. I told her, if she wanted to do it... she'd have to charge them gas. It got to be over a tank a week. So, she did.
Dr. Debner: And?
Emmett Foley: And they stopped talking to her.
Dr. Debner: Stopped asking for rides?
Emmett Foley: Then their kids... put tacks in the driveway, you know. Ruined a whole set of tires.
Emmett Foley: [Beat - looks at the doctor, who looks like Is-that-all? That's not enough, so he adds pointing with his hand] And let the dog out.
