She don't bother me none.
And we could always use
the extra money.

The Cottons are mighty decent people.
Why don't you love me, Mama?
I 've always wondered why you don't.
You never give me one part
of the love you give Jessie.

Mama -
Why do you always
move away from me?

Why? What's wrong with me?
Nothing! Nothing's wrong with you.
No. You don't think that.
You've always thought there
was something wrong with me.

- Haven't you? Always!
- I never.

My God! When I think
of the things I've done

to try to make you love me.
The things I've done!
Hm. What are you
thinking now, Mama?

About the things I've done?
What do you think they are?
Things that aren't decent, is that it?

Well, you think
I'm Mr Pemberton's girl.

Is that why you don't
want me to touch you?

Is that how you think I get
the money to set you up?

I'm... I'm sorry, Mama.
I don't know what got
into me talking like that.

I know you've never really
thought anything bad about me.

No, I never.
Well, I'm sorry. I really am.
- I'll pick up the pecans.
- No, you go upstairs and lay down.

You're all wore out. I'll ask Jessie
to come over and pick up the nuts.

After all... it is Jessie's pie, isn't it?
