Friendly Persuasion

Thee's doing it again.
Talking to thyself.
I'm not talking to myself.
Is thee talking to Gard Jordon?
He's so brave.
If he's so "brave"...
...why didn't he win some medals?
Who cares about medals anyway?
Gard has a proud and learned face.
A face to remember.
His eyes are the color...
...of the sky...
:29:33 the summer.
It pleasures me just to see him walk.
He walks just like anybody else.
Hello, little Jess.
How'd you like to have
the bullet they took out of my arm?

It's wrong to take bribes.
It's not a bribe. It's a gift.
Thanks. You want a polliwog?
No, thanks.
Go on, now. Scoot!
I'm going because I want to.
- Come on out. I want to talk to you.
- I can't. I'm barefooted.

What's wrong with that?
I'm too big a girl
to run around barefooted.

It mortifies me,
thee seeing me so unlady-like.

Look, I'll shut my eyes...
...and I'll pretend you have shoes on.
Come on.
Or I'll wade in!
I've got to talk to you.
Come on out, please.

I'm really nice, you know.
I've got a nice walk.
And eyes the color of the sky.

Thee heard?
Thee heard!
Thee eavesdropped!
Thee thinks I set my cap for thee!

No, wait! Wait! Please wait!
