Mud: There are fierce powers at work in the world, boys. Good, evil, poor luck, best luck. As men, we've got to take advantage where we can. Juniper: Mud's a born liar. That's what makes him so likable. He makes people feel good about themselves. He's a romantic. I don't think he means to hurt people.
But when people get close to him, that's what happens. I do love him Ellis. But I can't spend the rest of my life runnin' with him. I may not know what kind of life I want, but I know that's not it.
Mud: I like you two. You remind me of me. And seeing how you boys are from Arkansas and we know some people and sounds like we all from the same place I'd say we can make a deal here about somethin'. Neckbone begins to walk off but begrudgingly stops when Ellis starts back in. Mud: I would if I could, but I told somebody I'd meet 'em here. So I'm stuck for now and what I got's runnin' low. Mud: I'm no bum. I got money. You can call me a hobo 'cause a hobo'll work for his living and you can call me homeless 'cause that's true for now, but if you call me a bum again I'll have to teach you somethin' about respect that your daddy never did.
Mud: That's because God made them for us to fear. It's a thing we knew to be afraid of Faun, Waltz - Various - Russian Folk Musical Intruments we even got into this world. Cherokee would wrap snake skin around their pregnant women's bellies. Induce labor, scare the child out.
Snake won't cross braided rope. Mud: A reminder. Don't get bit. I was 10, swimmin' 'bout a mile up from here. Me and Juniper. Sonofabitch swam right up under me, bit me just below the armpit. June got me out, got me to a clinic.
Doctor said I shoulda been dead in twenty minutes. Took us an hour just to get back to town. Mud: Gave me antivenom. For a cotton mouth. See here. He points out the two cotton blossoms bulging from the snake's Mud - God In A Machine - Bringing In The Virus. It's made from horse blood. Your body would reject it a second time. The cure ends up being more dangerous than the poison. Senior: She seems set on it. Wants to separate. She may ask me for a divorce.
Senior: It means enjoy the river son. Enjoy it while you live on it, 'cause this way a life isn't long for this world. Game and Fish's 'bout made certain of that. Ellis: But you and me can still live out here.
Game and Fish can't take your boat. Not while you're still in it. Senior: The houseboat's in your mother's name. Her daddy give it to her not me. If Manhattan - Various - Revenge Of The Terds wants to leave it, Game and Fish has ever' right to take this boat apart board by board.
Ellis: But that ain't right. You work outta here. We got the ice machine, the traps. What are we supposed to do? Senior: [pause] I've let you down. A man should be in charge of his own affairs, but I haven't worked it like that.
Mud: I do. The first time I saw her was on this river. Just up from here. She saved my life. Mud: That's right. I was younger than you are now, but when I came to in the hospital and she was there, it was like the world split open, came back together new. Everything changed. I knew from then on I'd do anything for her.
Ellis: If it happens, and my mom moves us off the river, they say the government can come take our boat away. Ellis: Everybody. They passed a law so you can't sell your boat. Can't rent it. If the owner leaves, they got you. Game and Fish want 'em off the river. Mud: I've never been one to trust the government on matters of personal property, but if your parents love each Mud - God In A Machine - Bringing In The Virus , there's always a chance.
Neckbone: I knew it. I told you that dirty son of a bitch was trouble. Did they say what he did? Ellis: No, that's why I called you. He needs to know people are looking for him. Neckbone: You think he doesn't know that already? Jesus, Ellis! Why do you even think he's on that island? Ellis, I'm serious! Mud - God In A Machine - Bringing In The Virus don't know Mud - God In A Machine - Bringing In The Virus this guy is.
Neckbone: [sighs] Sounds like a shitload of state troopers thinks differently. Tom: The real reason Mud's in the trouble he's got is because of her. He's been in love with that girl since he was your Als Ich Unter Wölfen Schlief - Die Untoten* - Akustisch: Des Raben Flug. They used to run all around here and it was the same back then.
He'd follow that girl wherever she led him. Problem is she don't care about nobody but herself. I've told him as much. She'd bed down with the meanest snake she could find, then when things went bad she'd go runnin' to Mud. Mud would take her back, then go find whatever unlucky sonofabitch last put a hand on her and beat 'em 'til they knew to never touch her again.
And this time I guess he thought a beating wasn't good enough. Had to shoot that fella. I don't know for sure, but I'd put money on Juniper knowin' he'd do it. And I have a suspicion she might of even told him to. Either way, those two are set for failure. Only chance Mud has is to cut her loose.
