Well—it wasn’t much as we told you—me and Willy— I’m sorry, Walter. I got a bad feeling about it. I got a real bad feeling about it …
Man, what you telling me about all this for? … Tell me what happened in Springfield …
Willy never showed up.
Why... where was he... where is he?
That was all the extra money I had in the world … Man, Willy is gone.
Gone, what you mean Willy is gone? Gone where? You mean he went by himself?
Bobo came over to tell Walter about his special "meeting" he had with Willy.
I’m sorry, Walter … I had my life staked on this deal, too …
I trusted you … Man, I put my life in your hands … Man …THAT MONEY IS MADE OUT OF MY FATHER’S FLESH—
Is it gone? Son, I gave you sixty-five hundred dollars. Is it gone? All of it? Beneatha’s money too? You mean … your sister’s school money … you used that too … Walter? …
Bobo just told Walter and Ruth that Willy Harris, Walter's and Bobo's business partner, has ran off with their money.
Yessss! All of it … It’s all gone …
Walter doesn't understand. He still thinks of Willy as a friend instead of the lying, deceiving con-man he is.
I seen him, night after night, come in and look at that rug and then look at me .The red showing in his eyes. The veins moving in his head. I seen him grow thin and old before he was forty. Working and working and working like somebody’s old horse ...killing himself and you —you give it all away in a day.
Walter cries out to Willy as if he was there.
Walter then reveals that he gave ALL of the money away to Willy for the liquor store.
Mama beats Walter and cries while Beneatha tries to make Mama stop hitting Walter.
