Scottsboro Boys, The movie - Financial Advice



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

WHEN YOUR BILLS AIN’T PAID

AND THE GOIN’S ROUGH

AND YOUR BANKBOOK SAYS

YOU AIN’T GOT ENOUGH,

LET ME TELL YOU, SONNY

THERE’S NOTHIN’ LIKE JEW MONEY



RUBY

I told you, I lied! Those boys never jazzed me! You think I couldn’t make my own money if I wanted to – from men just like

you.



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

WHEN THERE AIN’T NO CASH

FOR THE DAYS AHEAD

AND YOU GOT NO JOB

AND YOU WISH YOU WAS DEAD

THERE’S ONE SOLUTION, HONEY

GO GET YOU SOME JEW MONEY



RUBY

What are you talking about! We made it all up! I don’t even know what a Jew looks like.



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

THEY’VE GOT IT ALL

THEY HIDE IT WELL

THEY MUST HAVE MADE A PACT

WITH THE DEVIL IN HELL

WITH ALL THEIR GOLD

I JUST CAN’T SEE

WHY SOME OF IT SHOULD NOT BELONG TO

YOU AND ME



RUBY

This lie ain’t for sale! And if it was, do you think I’d sell out for this sorry-ass grey hat and grey coat?



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

SO, IF THAT IS THE WAY YOU FEEL

GO OUT AND BORROW, BEG OR STEAL

AND ONCE YOU GET THEIR MONEY

HERE’S MY ADVICE TO YOU

KEEP THAT MONEY

BUT GET RID OF THAT JEW



RUBY

I lied because Victoria told me to. I was scared. Why did everybody believe me when I was telling a lie, but nobody believes

me when I’m telling the truth?



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

ONCE YOU GET THEIR MONEY

HERE’S MY ADVICE TO YOU

TAKE THAT MONEY



RUBY

I don’t take anything I don’t make.



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

GRAB THAT MONEY



RUBY

Yeah, grab this.



ATTORNEY GENERAL (MR. BONES)

KEEP THAT MONEY

BUT LOSE THAT JEW –



RUBY

Stop! STOP! STOP!!! I lied! I said I was sorry! Why don’t nobody believe me?
