Annabelle line

"Papa died in the fall, and we couldn’t afford him a real funeral- so we figured life ain't worth nothing if you can't even afford nothing"

Maryanne line

"The dead don't have worries in heaven
It's the living we need to be worried about...would'nt you say so Ms. Annabelle"

Annabelle line

"I used to reckon Satan was dark skinned.
Had dark eyes, with horns growing out the top of his head.
The devil is real pretty. She's got long hair, bright eyes, and a
peculiar smile you'll probably only see once"

Maryanne line

I used to be young...
Some women would've taken a dead corpse of a husband
over being alone- that wasn't me...
Used to run around in pretty dresses
thinking life owed me something. I was young, and fearless.

Annabelle line

I reckon you ain't got no business helping me...
But you's the only thing standing between me and my freedom

Maryanne line

You like flowers...
You can throw them in a nice displayable vase;
forget to water them till they shrivel up and die

Annabelle line

"That night I saw Deacon I wanted to tell I hated him.
Tell him he ain’t just change my body.
He done changed me- changed everything I wanted to know about life."

Maryanne line

"First time I saw you preach I hated you.
You were too damn stiff for my liking...
My mother said the heart will take care of itself Maryanne.
THAT man will make you happy"

Annabelle line

"He ain't coming back Ms. Maryanne...
when a man runs away like that he ain't coming back."
