Friendly Persuasion

What's the fault in that?
I've got three marriageable daughters.
A man ain't got any heart for courting
a girl he can't catch up with...

...let alone pass.
It shouldn't be hard to find
a horse willing to be passed.

Hello, Abigail!
That's old Whiskey Pete.
He ain't drawed a sober breath
in 30 years.

Fool's always trying to race somebody.
Old drunk!
Why don't thee let her out?
Don't fight her. Let her go!

I'm going to learn this consarned mare
she's got to be passed!

Put my hat on!
Pull it down!
Not that far!
What are you doing?
It's all right.
Easy, Lady. Easy.
Sorry, I kind of overreached myself,
grabbing the reins thataway.

Don't apologize.
For a man, it's suitable to beat
another man in a race on a public road.

Do you ever think about getting
thy girls a horse a mite more...
