  • "Every night around midnight Alice and I'll wake up to some crazy hollering and gun shots. You'd think the world was ending all over again. But it's just one animal each night. They don't take it or carve it up or nothing. Just leave it there, all full of holes."
  • "Beg your pardon mister, but them two-headed beeves ain't worth getting shot over."
