Thieves Like Us (1974)
Bowie: Miss Keechie, do you know what the Mississippi state animal is?
Keechie: What?
Bowie: You know, the state animal.
Keechie: I don't know. A deer, maybe?
Bowie: No, sir! It's a squashed dog in the road!

Keechie: I think it'll be a boy.
Lady in Train Station: Can you tell?
Keechie: Well I hope it is. But if it is, he sure will not be named after his dad, God rest his soul. He crossed me up once too often, lying. He didn't deserve to have no baby named after him.
