Friendly Persuasion

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!
I was only joking.
I never want to see thee again!
Mattie, wait!
Good evening, Mr. Birdwell.
Getting ready to leave us again?
Yes, sir. And I'm reporting
to the home guard tonight.

I came to say goodbye.
Come on down.
This is no way to treat a guest.

Would thee please ask him to excuse me?
I hurt her feelings.
It's the last thing I wanted to do.
I know how that is.
