Old Sister: Well, my brothers, I tries to live right, but my trials is heavy. Ain't nobody can tell who dey friend. Now, dere's dis here gal Ellen. I seen her walkin' wid Mensa two time an' havin' compersation. Her an' me is good friends. We go every wey wid one another, an' I axe her wuh she see in Mensa, an' wuh de whole compersation 'bout, an' she say, "Is I broke any law? If I wants to talk wid Mensa, wuh make I ain't can talk to him?" Ain't you see how her mind run? An' I ain't never say a word 'bout her, cepen I went to Pooch an' Big Daughter an' Sister Janie an' Rachael an' I tell dem 'bout it an' axe dem to intercede an' I tell dem not to breath it to nobody. Wha' more kin I do? I is Ellen's friend, but I got to stan' by my Jesus too. Ain't none of we can serve two masters.
Scip: Sister, I ain't see where you can do no more dan you has done. Ellen oughts to love you.
Tad: Here comes Mensa. Sister, is you talk to Mensa?
Old Sister: No, I ain't said nothin' to Mensa, an' I ain't say nothin' 'bout Mensa. He so curious an' he so vigus he ain't never had no reason, an' he ain't got no conscious. He ain't got no right to run wid Ellen. He run after too much women. Well, I must tell you all good day. Mensa so 'spicious, if I stays here he mought think I been talkin' 'bout him an' Jesus know I ain't never called he name to nobody. Good day, my brothers.
