CHARLIE: Are you my Daddy?

JAGGER: Yes, Charlie, I’m yo Daddy.

CHARLIE: Where you been?

JAGGER: Oh, well, I was sent away cause I did some bad things that I got into trouble for and so I had to go away to, to, to pay for those bad things I committed and now I am free and I’m no longer in trouble and I want to get to know you and become friends with ya.

He’s a good boy…

MARGARET: He really is.

JAGGER: When’s the operation?

MARGARET: Tomorrow?

MARGARET: We don’t know for sure. Fifty-fifty.

JAGGER: …Right…I came just in time.

MARGARET: You did?

JAGGER: I want to be there, Marge…please.

MARGARET: You can be there.

JAGGER: I’m gonna take him down to the creek. Won’t be long.

MARGARET: You gotta carry him on your shoulders.

JAGGER: I do? Oh, okay…I’ll hoist him up.

MARGARET: Cause he can’t, you know—

JAGGER: Right, no, I get it, of course…

MARGARET: Don’t be long, big day tomorrow.
