An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact.

Sonny: Maybe they'll share some of that with us.
Ree: That could be.
Sonny: Maybe we should ask.
Ree: Never ask for what oughta be offered.
Megan: What are we ever gonna do with you, baby girl?
Ree: Kill me I guess.
Megan: That idea's been said already. Got any others?
Ree: Help me. Nobody's said that idea yet, have they?
Ree: You always have scared me.
Teardrop: That's cuz you're smart.
[last lines]
Sonny: Are you wanting to leave us?
Ree: I'd be lost without the weight of you two on my back. I ain't goin' anywhere.
Ashlee: [wrestles up the banjo and starts plucking]
Sonny: [on gutting a squirrel] Do we eat these parts?
Ree: [grimly] Not yet...
Sheriff Baskin: I didn't shoot the other night cuz you were there in the truck. He never backed me down.
Ree: It looked to me like he did.
Sheriff Baskin: Don't you let me hear that's a story gettin' around.
Ree: I don't talk much about you, man. Ever.
Victoria: You know all those people, Teardrop. You could ask.
Teardrop: Shut up.
Victoria: None of them's gonna be in a great big hurry to tangle with you.
Teardrop: I said shut up once already, with my mouth.
Teardrop: Those pills
[drugs]
Teardrop: helping your mama's mood any?
Ree: She keeps takin' 'em. But they aint workin'.
Ree: This fella with the money have a name?
Satterfield: Shit no. Probably left that in his other pants.
Blond Milton: [to Sonny] Havin' balls is good, boy. Don't let 'em get you hurt.
Ree: What I really can't stand is the way I feel ashamed... for dad.
Teardrop: Well, he loved y'all. That's where he went weak.
Teardrop: [addressing Baskin, who has pulled him over, in the rearview mirror] Is this gonna be our time?
[first lines]
Ree: [waking her] Ashlee Dawn...
Ashlee: Hmmm?
[to her brother]
Ashlee: Wake up...
Gail: [after asking her husband to let her use his truck] He said no.
Ree: Did you tell him I'd spring for gas?
Gail: I told him. He still won't.
Ree: Why not?
Gail: He never says why not to me, Ree, he just says no.
Ree: Man, it's so sad to hear you say he won't let you do somethin' and then you *don't* do it.
Gail: It's different once you're married.
Ree: It really must be. 'Cause you ain't never used to eat no shit.
Ree: He might be hangin' around with Little Arthur and them. You think?
Teardrop: You don't wanna go around Little Arthur's askin' them people about anything they ain't offered to talk about. That's a real good way to end up et by hogs... or wishin' you was.
Merab: One of my nephews is Buster Leroy. Didn't he shoot your daddy one time?
Ree: Yes, but that's got nothin' to do with me. They settle that stuff themselves, don't they?
Merab: Shootin' him likely settled it.
