MIKE: Are you gonna cook for us from now on. Miss Daisy?
DAISY: Well that’s something you’d have to ask Slim and Jess about Mike.
MIKE: Is she, Slim? Is she gonna stay?
DLIM: You’ve done so much for us already, ah, we don’t know how to thank you.
JESS: Would you consider stayin’ on, ma’am? I mean in a rundown place like this?
DAISY: Oh, it’s not so run down.
SLIM: We’d sure love to have you stay, Miss Daisy. We really would.
MIKE: Will ya? Please?
DAISY: Well, after all those things I told the judge, maybe I’d better stay.
DAISY: (Pointing to the wash basin) Wash your hands. (Laughs and walks into the house)
MIKE: (Pours water in the basin and picks up the soap, then looks at SLIM and JESS.)Well, aren’t you gonna wash your hands?
