Quotes

Woody: It's a good thing this fire didn't spread. It could have been like that fire my great-grandmother's cow started. Darn thing kicked over a lantern and burned an entire city to the ground. Yup, the shame was so great, the family had to move to Ohio and change their last name to Wilkins.
Kelly: But Woody, you're from Indiana and your family name is Boyd.
Woody: Oh, well, some stuff happened in Ohio.
