A radiator hissing.
A single cane, back straight as an arrow
All hands on deck!
All right. But afterwards, you must go to bed
All those people sleeping.
And as I knew I would, I watched her go.
And don't eat it all at once,
And I was actually gonna be paid for something I would've done for free.
And I was born under unusual circumstances.
And I’m writing it now while I still remember it.
And she taught me what it meant to miss somebody.
And that was it
And this is how you telic me?
And to Mike Clark, captain of the tugboat Chelsea
And today, I can't sew a stitch
And when I was two miles from Calais,
And you've never had a woman?
And, baby, people aren't gonna understand just how different you are
Are sublime and plentiful
Are you all right?
Aren't you a little old to be working on a boat?
Be safe, hear?
Because he forgot to set his alarm
Because the girl who was supposed to wrap it
Because, please, if they're not gonna give you an award
But I didn't know I was a child.
But most of all, he loved America
But the monkeys.
But they're scared shitless.
Can I help you?
Captain Mike?
Come in.
Come on over here, you.
Come on.
Come on.
Come on. You’ll have a good time
Come, I have an appointment
Cookie, Prentiss Mayes from Wilmington, Delaware.
Dancing's all about the line
Did I ever telic you I’ve been struck by lightning seven times?
Did you get that this Benjamin loved you from the first time that he saw you?
Did you love him, Mother?
Die in his sleep?
Do I know you?
Do you know what that means?
Don't be a chicken. Light it.
Don't let anyone telic you different.
Don't touch him
Every day I have more wrinkles. It’s not fair
Every morning at 5:30, no matter the weather,
General Winslow, U. S. Army, Retired, would raise the flag.
Get twitches and shakes out of nowhere, always losing my line of thought
Get your asses up here, you lazy bastards!
Give me your other hand
Go on. Say your prayers, hear?
Good day, Mrs. Fuller.
Good night, baby
Good night, Benjamin.
Hambert sends his remembrances to you.
Hambert's back in town.
Have you been in the Far East?
Have you read D. H
He had gone with that Captain Mike.
He must have known something.
He said they had
He sent me a postcard from everywhere he went.
He was five when I moved in
He. . .
He's in very poor health. He was taken to the hospital.
Health and food, for love and friends. For everything thy goodness sends.
Here you go.
Hey, boy
His name was...
Hope I didn't hurt it none stepping on it like that.
I did enjoy the company of a woman or two.
I guess he went to India.
I hope I haven't disappointed you
I hope you don't mind, but, whenever possible,
I love birds that can't fly.
I promise you I’ll never lose myself to self pity again.
I sold my father's sailboat, put it all into a savings account.
I think.
I thought I was like everyone else there.
I thought you were a monster
I was awfully cruel.
I would do anything.
I wouldn't know what a married woman does or doesn't do.
I’d never thought about life or death that way before.
I’m Daisy.
I’m just a lush, myself.
I’m not as old as I look.
I’m sorry, but we usually don't allow dogs in the house.
I’ve met somebody, and I’ve fallen in love.
I’ll telic you a secret if you’ll telic me one
I’m not sure how it works, but I’m glad it happened
I’m ready! I’m ready!
In my cage, with my teeth.
In the middle of the night with strange men in hotels.
Is any of this true?
Is stop having you listed as an ex convict
It seemed I had found a home.
It’s an awful responsibility.
It’s nice to meet you, Benjamin.
It’s not that I wouldn't like to or anything. I think I’ll just disappoint you
It’s sad, don't you think? Birds that can't fly?
Just taking different roads to get there, that's all.
Let's go back to the house
Lf we're going to have an affair,
Like Man of the Year, at least what they could do
Look at you. You're perfect
Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same
May I help you, sir? Up the stairs, first bedroom
Milk? Honey?
Mr. Cake.
Mrs. Lawson, or Mrs. Hartford.
My wife's doing poorly
Never to go to bed sober.
Not many people experience that.
Not on Sundays
Now when I look back on it, it was miraculous.
Nurses'll be right here if you need them. Are you okay?
Oh, Benjamin, I’ve been with older men
Oh, Caroline.
Oh, well, I wish you would've called. You took me by surprise
On Saturday nights, Mama would make me go to church.
Once when I was sitting in my truck, just minding my own business.
Only if you let me pay for it, Mr. Button
Or that man had set his alarm and got up five minutes earlier
Our neighbor, a Mrs. Van Dam, was a physical therapist.
Possibly beyond.
Queenie, some creatures aren't meant to survive.
She opened a studio and taught young girls how to dance
She was not beautiful. She was plain as paper.
She's divine.
So then what'd you do?
So, you were a friend of her grandmother's?
Some get struck by lightning.
Some say he went to sea.
Something's been keeping me up
Stop banging that fork. It’s used for eating, not for playing with.
Thank you very much. Good evening.
Thank you, Chief
Thank you.
Thank you. Thank you all.
That there was only a short window of time you could do it.
That's gonna be staying with us for a little while.
The air is sweet.
The hummingbird is not just another bird.
The old ship had been refitted with a diesel engine and a new sea winch.
There was one woman who wanted to sleep with me.
There we go.
There's no age limit, as long as you can do the work.
Things were changing quickly.
Thinking that I’d do something to change my circumstances.
This is no ordinary bird.
Time just seeped out of me.
To have to see everybody you love die before you do
To move people, but it's up to you.
To repair, to salvage, and to rescue
Try this
Until one night.
Wait a minute, now.
Want me to go on?
Was blocked by a delivery truck
Watch the sun come up over the warehouses
We escaped across the river.
We sailed into the Gulf along the Florida Keys.
We sure as hell can't outrun them fuckers
We vowed never to fall into routine,
Well, he got another thing coming, that's for sure
Well, I know I don't have much to show for myself.
Well, look at you. You're so lovely
Well, quite right.
What are you doing here?
What's it like growing younger?
What's the matter?
What's wrong with me, Mama?
Where in God's name have you been? Get in here.
While that man, late for work, was crossing the street,
With whiskey, not brandy.
Y’all listen. Y’all listen up here.
Yeah, I’ve been meaning to talk with you, Mike
Yes, speaking.
You are not to be playing together.
You certainly are beautiful to watch.
You could swear, curse the Fates
You don't drink, do you?
You don't seem like an old person.
You gonna scratch yourself to ribbons
You know what I’m saying?
You know what the figure eight is the mathematical symbol for?
You know,
You know, a dancer, intentionally falling
You know, a lot of the dancers are lesbians
You might change your mind.
You never know what's coming for you?
You want to see something?
You'd do the same for me.
You're different than anybody I’ve ever met.
You're odd.
You’ll be a father for as long as you can.
Your hands are so coarse
Cut the engines! All stop!
Daisy has company
Excuse me, is Queenie here? Daisy?
Good luck to you, son. Thank you.
Good night, Miss Daisy. Good night.
Hallelujah! . . .and divine inspiration alone!
I have to go
I love you, Mama. I love you, too, baby.
I told you about him. Oh, yeah. How you doing?
I want some breakfast. And every day,
I want to look after you. I’m not going back to New Orleans.
I’m ready! All right, I’m coming, Miss Alfalina
Is my age beginning to bother you? Of course not.
It’s me, Benjamin
No, I didn't. You just finished eating
Nobody wants a job? I do.
Praise God! Praise God!
She passed. I heard that. I’m sorry
Sleep with me? Absolutely.
Some joy, too? Sure. Sure, I did
