Storyboard Text

  • Rex Walls
  • Rose Mary
  • Jeanette
  • "Moms and dads got into arguments all the time in Battle Mountain, so it didn't seem that big a deal, but this fight was raucous even by local standards, and some people thought they should step in and break it up." (Walls 71) "Dad would get a job as an electrician or engineer in a gypsum or copper mine. Mom liked to say that dad could talk a blue streak, spinning tales of jobs he;d never had and college degrees he'd never earned. He could get any job he wanted, he just didn't like keeping it long." (Walls 19) "'Don't worry,' I said. 'Dad will fix it.'" (Walls 120)
  • Billy Deel
  • "I could hear Mom in the next room singing while she worked on one of her paintings." (Walls 9) "'It's not my fault if you're hungry!' she shouted. 'Don't blame me. Do you think I like living like this? Do you?'" (Walls 69) "It was near Phoenix's business district, which made it a perfect place for mom to start an art studio. She'd also inherited money, so she could give up teaching and buy all the art supplies she wanted." (Walls 93)
  • Brian
  • "'You know if it's humanly possible, I'll die trying.' I looked up at the thin swirls of clouds high in the Arizona sky. Keeping my eyes fastened on those distant clouds, I took a breath and said, 'Do you think you could maybe stop drinking?'" (Walls 116) "At lunch Brian and I sat together in the cafeteria. I was pretending to help him with his homework so that no one would ask us why we weren't eating.." (Walls 78) "Dad allowed each of us to bring only one thing. I ran outside with a paper bag to gather up my favorite rocks." (Walls 89)
  • Lori
  • "There was hardly anything in Billy's house. No furniture. Not even wooden spool tables. It had only one room with two mattresses on the floor next to a TV.....On one of the mattresses, Billy's father was snoring unevenly...'Don't you see?' said Billy, pointing at his dad. 'He pissed himself!' Billy started laughing." (Walls 82-83) "..he kept trying to be my boyfriend. He told me that if I'd be his girlfriend, he would always protect me and make sure nothing bad ever happened to me and buy me expensive presents. If I wouldn't be his girlfriend, he said, I'd be sorry." (Walls 83) "Then I felt a sharp sting on the back of my head as if a little rock had hit me. Billy had thrown the ring at me. I kept walking. 'Guess what?' Billy shouted. 'I raped you!'" (Walls 87)
  • "Brian had joined the police force as soon as he turned twenty." (Walls 274) "This time both Brian and I chased after them."  (Walls 166) "We brought the ice cream home, and Brian pulled apart the carton and cut the block into five even slices." (Walls 197)
  • "Lori wasn't as good a shot as me, but she pointed the gun in Billy's general direction and pulled the trigger." (Walls 88) "Lori, because of her good grades and art portfolio, had been accepted into a government sponsored summer camp for students with special aptitudes." (Walls 209) "Lori was about as different as it was possible to be in Welch." (Walls 223)
