a snippet of O'Connor dialogue

"She says it's ten million more like them, Displaced Persons, she says that there priest can get her all she wants."

"She better quit messin with that there priest," Mr. Shortley said.

"He don't look smart," Mrs. Shortley said, "-kind of foolish."

"I ain't going to have the Pope of Rome tell me how to run no dairy," Mr. Shortley said.

"They ain't Eye-talians, they're Poles," she said.  From Poland where all them bodies were stacked up at.  You remember all them bodies?"

"I give them three weeks here," Mr. Shortley said.

(From one of the early scenes in "The Displaced Person")
