Big Sam Hollis: [speaking, angrily, to John Mayhew] This house, this plantation, this whole damned parish belonged to my family, before your *people* stepped aboard the stinkin' cattle boat that brought 'em to this country. Don't you dare talk back to me, boy! My family's seen this state crawlin' with lousy carpetbaggers that knew more about behaving like a gentleman than you do!

Big Sam Hollis: [speaking, angrily, to John Mayhew] My daddy sat out there on that veranda. Let this whole place slide to dust. When he died there was nothin' but debts and dirt. I touched that dirt and made it blossom. I fought to keep this house and to bring it back up!

Big Sam Hollis: [going over to Charlotte's portrait on the wall] I don't have a son to give it to - only Charlotte. And she ain't gonna' give it to you. You ain't gonna' have my home or my child. I created both and I'm gonna' keep 'em.

Big Sam Hollis: [now confronting John Mayhew] I haven't watched over my girl all these years to have some... to have someone... to have some *creature* like you take her away.
