Delightful Dialogue: North

Pa Tex: Remember before when I told you that everything I own is the biggest and the best? Well you're already the best. Now there's nothing left but to make you the biggest.
Ma Tex: And don't fret about not being able to clean up your plate. Why soon your stomach will stretch and stretch and your capacity for food will grow and grow.

North: You say that like that's a good thing to have happen to your stomach.

Pa Tex: It is.

North: Why?

Ma Tex: Then you'll be like Buck.

North: Who?

Pa Tex: Our first son. The biggest boy this big state's ever seen. Why he could eat more in one day than anyone else could eat in a whole month.

Ma Tex: That's why Buck hated February.

~ Dan Aykroyd, Reba McEntire, Elijah Wood in North (1994)

Screenplay: Alan Zweibel
