Man 1 (after being told he's unfit company for a boy): "Maybe I do live differently than other people. Is that wrong? I live by my wits. I'm not above bending the law now and then to keep clothes on my back and food in my stomach. I live the kind of life other people would love to live if they only had the courage. Who’s to say that the boy would be happier your way or mine? Why not let him decide?"
Sheriff Andy Taylor: "Nah, I'm afraid it don't work gat way. You can't let a younin' decide for himself. He'll grab at the first shiny thing with ribbons on it and when he finds out there's a hook in it, it's too late. Wrong ideas come packaged with so much glitter that it's hard to convince 'em that other things might be better in the long run. All a parent can do is say, 'Wait, trust me', and try to keep temptation away."*
