Quote #10

Cory and Raynell: "Blue laid down and died like a man / Now he's treeing possums in the Promised Land / I'm gonna tell you this to let you know / Blue's gone where the good dogs go."

Cory and his half-sister, Raynell, sing this song together in honor of their father. Though the words are about a hound dog named Blue, it seems clear that they both hope that Troy has gone "where the good dogs go." This is a great moment of healing for Cory, who never got to make peace with his father before the man died.
