Perry: (to Wilsa) Where’s Barney? (to Barney) Hey! Barney! (under his breath) Dumb son of a bitch. (pause.) What you doing out there by that tree?
Barney: I was just looking around.
Perry: Looking for what?
Barney: I don’t know, just thought maybe there’d be somethin’ there is all.
Perry: Now why would there be something all the way over there when the crime scene is all the way over here?
Barney: You always say to look outside the box and all—
Perry: Think! It’s think outside the box. I ain’t ever say LOOK outside the box.
Barney: Oh, I thought you said–
Perry: Shut the hell up. Let me ask you, did you find anything way over there?
Barney: Just some rock and dirt and bark and uh, uh I don’t know what you call this here…
Barney holds up a thong.
Perry: What is that?
Barney: Don’t know what you call it.
Perry: That a thong?
Barney: What’s a thong?
Perry: A thong! Women’s underwear.
Barney: Sounds Chinese.
Perry: Now you an Asian expert? Give me that!
Barney: Uh, it’s got blood on it.
Perry: So it does. Now, probably some woman on her time of the month or it’s related to this here situation.

Perry: Go on, ask it. I can’t even imagine what kind a question you struggling to put together. Go on.

Barney: I didn’t mean to, to upset you Perry.
Perry: Put this evidence in a bag.
Barney: Should I, should I go back to looking to see if I find more evidence—
Perry: Go! I ain’t your Daddy.
Barney: T-t-technically you my step-daddy so that make you my—
Perry: Get the hell out my sight!
Barney takes off walking.
Wilsa: I hate to say it, but Barney’s got the right idea.
Perry: That what you think?
Wilsa: I’m just saying—
Perry: What? What you saying?
Wilsa: There may be more evidence on a larger scope if we covered more terrain, I suppose.
Perry: …Okay. Don’t make Barney right. It make him lucky, but not right.
Wilsa: I’m gonna walk around then.
