Rev. Ethan Wilkins: (after Jason has rejected and mocked the old black coat that sister Clarke has donated him) Pride... Pride and selfishness. They're out of place in our family, Jason. Unless you conquer them they're going to make you unhappy, and those who love you unhappy, too. All you seem to think about is that "doctor book."
Jason Wilkins: Well, suppose I do? I'd rather save bodies than souls any day!
Rev. Ethan Wilkins: I'm sorry you said that, son. Sorry you mistake that cold frankness of yours for courage. Come outside, please.
Jason Wilkins: Now, wait a minute, pop. You're not gonna' whip me any more - I'm too old.
Rev. Ethan Wilkins: (Unperturbed) You'll never be too old while I'm alive.
Jason Wilkins: You lay a hand on me and I'll...
Rev. Ethan Wilkins: You'll what?
Jason Wilkins: I'll protect myself, pop! I'm warnin' ya', I'll...
Rev. Ethan Wilkins: (totally unperturbed) Come outside.
