Cape Fear

Well, you look good, healthy.
Thank you. It's a struggle
to stay healthy in the joint.

But you wouldn't know about that,
would you?

They would stick you with
the white trash. They don't work all day.

In fact...
...this little old cigar is my only vice...
...'cause I needed a vice in the joint
to remind me I was human.

What brings you to New Essex?
Oh, the climate.
Boy, the South.
I'm thinking of settling down here
in New Essex, Counsellor.

Have you been following me?
It's a small town.
We're gonna run into each other.

-Well, take care, Mr. Cady.
-You, too.

-You're gonna learn about loss.

Dad, could you...
I'm sorry, Dani.
-What're you working on?
-It's English.

We're supposed to read
Look Homeward, Angel...

...which is a kind of reminiscence...
...and we have to attempt something
in the same style.

What's it about, your reminiscence?
The houseboat.
It's not even July 3 yet.
We ought to take two weeks
and go to Wilmington...

:11:28 the old times, dock the houseboat.
I wanted to in early June.
You said you didn't have time.

-I probably don't.
-Yeah, now I don't, either.

Besides, Dani's got summer school
till Labor Day.

Is it really that critical
that she can't miss two damn weeks?

You know,
the alternative was to expel her.

Maybe this Drama teacher from the college
will get her excited about something.

Yeah, about him, probably.
Why'd they have to make such a stink,
like she was on heroin, or something?

I mean, what's marijuana?
You and I smoked a little dope in our time.
In some cultures,
it's considered almost a sacrament.
