Luke:Anybody here? Hey old man, you home tonight? Can spare a minute, it's about time we had a little talk. I know I'm a pretty evil fellow; killed people in the war an' drunk and...chewed up municipal property and the like, I know I got no call to ask for much, but even so, you gotta admit you ain't dealt me no cards in a long time...From here, it looks like, you got things fixed so I can never win out! Inside, outside, all them...rules, and regulations, and bosses. You made me like I am! So just, where am I supposed to fit in? Old man, I gotta tell ya...I started out pretty strong and fast. But it's beginning to get to me. When did it end? What do ya got in mind for me? What do I do now? All right. All right. On my knees, asking.... Yeah, that's what I thought... .I guess I'm pretty tough to deal with, huh? A hard case...yeah, I guess I gotta find my own way.
