  • Min Wead : I'm not going

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : Stay broke and keep moving, that's the story of our lives.

    Min Wead : Spig, you've got two daughters and they've lived in seven different houses and seven seven states and seven different years back and forth across the country and out of it, too. Well, I'm just not going to move them anymore.

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : Well, have a drink

  • Min Wead : Why don't you!

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : Alright, I been thinking what a heel I been about you and my own kids, I do something I go all the way - living, gambling, flying, tap myself out I guess. That's what I wanted to be. Maybe the way I am.

    Min Wead : Star-Spangled Spig - damn the marguritte and full speed ahead and don't give up the ship.

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : Have a drink. Listen, Min, I'm trying to say I been a fool, first grade gold brand

    Min Wead : So have I!

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : [Grabs her]  Okay, let's change it. Lets grow up before our kids do

    Min Wead : We better hurry up.

    [They kiss passionately] 

  • Min Wead : [Phones rings while their cuddling]  Let it ring.

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : Why not, It probably just Washington. Oh I forgot - you know you're in the arms of a new lieutenant commander in the United States Navy.

    Min Wead : Star-Spangled Spig.

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : And a squad leader.

    Min Wead : All I know is I'm in the arms with a fellow named Spig that I'm nuts about. Hey! How about getting back to your necking with a little more enthusiasm.

    Frank W. 'Spig' Wead : Right!
