What if she was

Elton:
Well, what if she was, Bob? I can't see nothin' so bad in that. Well, what if I were to let you in on a little secret that she is? That's right. She told me. She's all torn up about it, too, which I hate to see. Well hell, isn't it somethin' you just have to face up to? I tell ya, somewhere along the line, you even get to likin' the whole idea. When Stoney first give me the news, I coulda shit!
[Bobby spits out his food and throws down his food in disgust]

Elton:
Well isn't that nice?
Bobby:
It's ridiculous. I'm sittin' here listening to some cracker *asshole* lives in a trailer park compare his life to mine. Keep on tellin' me about the good life, Elton, because it makes me puke.

Transcript:
Well, what if she was, Bob?
I can't see nothing so bad in that.
Well, what if I were to let you in
on a little secret that she is?
That's right. She told me.
She's all torn up about it too,
which I hate to see.
Oh, hell.
Isn’t it something you just have to face up to?
I'll tell ya, somewhere along the line
you even get to likin' the whole idea.
When Stoney first give me the news, I could've shit.
[Laughs]
Well, isn't that nice?
It's ridiculous! I'm sitting here
listening to some cracker asshole...
lives in a trailer park
compare his life to mine.
Keep on telling me about the good life, Elton,
because it makes me puke.
Well, if you're sayin' you think
you're something better than what I am...
now, that's somethin' else.
But I can't say much of someone
who could run off...
and leave a woman in a situation like this
and feel easy about it.
And that's all I have to say.
Well, I'm glad that's all you got to say, Elton...
because I'm about
as goddamned tired of your mouth...
as I am working on this goddamned job!
[Elton]
Shit-ass!
Hey, Longcipher!
Hey, Longcipher!
Longcipher, I'm quittin'.
Do you hear me, Longcipher?
I said I'm quittin'.
