Walking Across Egypt (1999)
Wesley Benfield: Thank God, cigarettes!
Mattie Rigsbee: Thank Lamarr. God had nothing to do with it!
Wesley Benfield: Have I met you before?
Elaine Rigsbee: I seriously doubt it.
Wesley Benfield: Well, cos you look just like this lady always comes down to the RC, asks me all sorts of questions. Always leaves me feeling like somebody's just grabbed my gonads, gently swung 'em out, looked all 'round behind 'em.
[Elaine splutters and nearly chokes on her lunch]
Alora: What are gonads?
Finner: Don't ask!
Mattie Rigsbee: Let Lamar say the blessing.
Wesley Benfield: Oh.
Lamar N. Benfield: Oh, er...
[clears throat uncomfortably]
Lamar N. Benfield: Er, thank you for the world so sweet, er... thank you for the food we eat, thanks for the birds that sing, thank you God, for everything!
Wesley Benfield: [lying back in the bath] God damn, this feels nice!
Mattie Rigsbee: Young man, you will not take the Lord's name in vain in my house!
Wesley Benfield: I'm not in the house, I'm in the tub!
Mattie Rigsbee: You like grits for breakfast?
Wesley Benfield: I like everything but tomatoes.
Mattie Rigsbee: Good home-grown tomatoes?
Wesley Benfield: Any kind of tomatoes!
Mattie Rigsbee: Well, good Lord. There's nothing better! I love 'em with bacon. I'm gonna have some.
Wesley Benfield: Well, good for you!
Wesley Benfield: Wow, this smells great.
Mattie Rigsbee: Hold on, young man. You need to say the blessing.
Wesley Benfield: I never said no blessing.
Mattie Rigsbee: Well, it's easy. You just talk to God like... like he's a friend who just gave you something.
[Wesley stares blankly at her]
Mattie Rigsbee: haven't you ever thanked someone for doing something for ya?
Wesley Benfield: Not that I remember. Ah, course, there was that one time I thanked Tracey Willingham for giving me my first role in the hay!
Mattie Rigsbee: Well, there you are. Just talk to God like he's Tracey Willingham.
Wesley Benfield: Alright. Er, hey God, thank you for this food. Sure smells good! And thanks for Miss Mattie. Cos she can flat-out cook, and I reckon you musta taught her how! Amen.
Mattie Rigsbee: Amen.
