Jerry Webster: Your trouble is that you're still living in the shadow of your Father. You're even afraid to get rid of his old car.

Peter 'Pete' Ramsey: You don't realize how completely he dominated me ever since I was a little boy. Just once I spoke back to him. He cut a switch from a tree and gave me such a whipping, in front of this girl. It was a shattering experience.

Jerry Webster: Pete, all kids get whippings.

Peter 'Pete' Ramsey: But I was twenty five, the girl was my fiancé.

[Blows Horn]

Jerry Webster: And what happens if he gets there?

Peter 'Pete' Ramsey: I take his Picture.

Jerry Webster: Pete, he's not running twenty miles to get photographed. Now I suggest you stop blowing that horn.
