Executive:
We sell new machinery. What do you know about drilling equipment for oil fields?



Rubin Flood:
Not a thing.



Executive:
Then why should we hire you?



Rubin Flood:
You chew tobacco, mister?



Executive:
I beg your pardon!



Rubin Flood:
You talk crops and weather? You know who's had a baby lately? You know who goes to church and who don't? Who likes corn liquor and who likes store liquor? Who's a Republican, who's a Democrat?



Executive:
Our methods are a little more modern than that.



Rubin Flood:
Well, I'm telling you that the people out here are farmers, no matter how much oil they got in their land. You want to come out of this territory with a profit? You'd be better off taking that diamond stickpin out of your tie and putting a straw hat on the back of your head and a chaw in your cheek! You're gonna have to hunker down and talk business with a man who's cleaning out his pigsty. That's where a lot of sales are made... and it can't be done in a New York suit!

Mavis Pruitt:
I'm going to tell you something, Mrs. Flood. Every time a door is slammed in a marriage... every time a woman turns her face away because she's tired or unwilling... there's someone waiting. Someone like me.

Ed Peabody:
It's a new world, and we don't belong in it.

Any world I'm in, I belong in!

Rubin Flood:
Oh, you always got a excuse. But the plain fact is, a lot of time goes by without our making love. Cora, this is a marriage!



Cora Flood:
There are other things in marriage.



Rubin Flood:
Yeah, but the part I'm talking about is natural! It's normal and it's necessary! God planned it that way, and ain't nobody come up with anything better since Adam and Eve!
