Alma: Mr. Bullock was my agent in this.
Joanie: On our way from Syracuse to Indiana so my daddy could try farming, my mama got cholera and died. He didn’t make any better a farmer than millinery clerk, but he had a way enough with words to get me believing that my mama in heaven wanted me to see to his needs. And then to add to the egg money by seeing to the men he brought, and she wanted me talking my sisters into seeing to his needs, and then to the men, til he sold me to Cy Tolliver.
If he was here, I’d wish a beating mornings and evenings on my daddy like your pa took today.
Deadwood- Sold Under Sin (Season 1, Episode 12)
A great moment between two complicated characters.
