Dancer, Texas Pop. 81 (1998)
Vivian: With 13 million people out there, you're bound to find yourself a real nice girl.
Keller Coleman: Think so?
[Vivian nods and they hug]

Old Fart Rancher: [Approaches Keller, at graduation event] I thought about leavin' town. Had a brother in law who did. He was just about your age. He went out to California, too. You sure remind me of him.
Keller Coleman: Yeah? I'll look him up.
Old Fart Rancher: He died a few years back. Murdered. In prison.
[Thrusts his face at Keller, turns and walks away]

Keller Coleman: Earl, you been here all your life, huh?
Earl: Yep. Well, except for a couple years in France.
Keller Coleman: [Surprised] France? What were you doin' in France?
Earl: Folks over there were havin' a world war. I got invited.
Keller Coleman: [Surprised] You were in World War Two?
Earl: General Patton's army. All through France.
Keller Coleman: What was it like?
Earl: France? I could tell it was, uh... well, it HAD been a pretty little country. But by the time we chased the Germans off of it, it was all beaten to hell. I think about goin' back. They probably got it all fixed up by now. I'd kinda' like to see it again.
Keller Coleman: Dancer must've been pretty dull, huh? I mean, after all that excitement?
Earl: [Chuckles] Nope. That was before I went over there, I was probably a lot like you, I guess. Full of beans. Wanted to see everything, do everything. But, by the time they got through with me over there in General Patton's army, I just wanted to find myself a nice little out-of-the-way corner of the world, get myself a nice comfortable chair...
Earl: [Motioning to the beat-up old chair he's sitting in] ... and just sit.

Keller Coleman: I been thinkin'. I should stick around for a while. I mean, you're not getting' any younger.
Keller's Grandfather: You're just lookin' for excuses, Keller. Don't be a chickenshit.
Keller Coleman: Grandpa, you need me to take care of you.
Keller's Grandfather: Horse hockey! I got ten widow ladies just achin' for you to get out of here so they can take good care of me. I ain't gonna' let you spoil it by stayin'.
Keller Coleman: [Exasperated] Grandpa...
Keller's Grandfather: Don't "grandpa" me! I put up with you for twelve years, since your folks died. With you outta' here I can finally cut loose... I love ya', Keller. Now, good bye!

Keller Coleman: Do you know what people mean when they say "safe sex"?
Keller's Grandfather: [Chuckles] Keller, at my age, there ain't no such thing. I could keel over right in the middle of it. At my age you don't worry about catchin' somethin'. You worry about finishing up in one piece.
Keller Coleman: [Grins sheepishly] I'm gonna' miss you, grandpa.
Keller's Grandfather: You're leavin' in the morning. Go to bed.
