“The Rodeo Comes First” 
from the play "Operation Redneck"

JULIE: You haven't exactly had the most stable job history.

BETH: That's because I have my priorities. The rodeo comes first.

JULIE: When are you ever going to give up playing rodeo?

BETH: I'm not playing. I've made some serious money when I've won.

JULIE: And you haven't won in two years.

BETH: I'm planning a comeback. Meanwhile, I'm making decent money at the electronics store. Joe says he might make me assistant manager.

JULIE: If you sleep with him.

BETH: I'm considering it. Joe ain't that bad.

JULIE: Beth, you're way better than that. You're smart. You don't have to sink that low.

BETH: Smart huh? I haven't been called smart since high school. Sure, I got the same kind of grades you did back then, but my brain has been rotting away down here while yours was getting educated.

TINA: And those kicks to the head by them bulls at the rodeo haven't helped either.

JULIE: You could go back to school you know.

BETH: What for? All us girls do is get married and mooch off our husbands anyway. Why get educated?

TINA: Too true.

JULIE: I'm going to have to work on your attitudes. Maybe that's why I ended up back here. I'm meant to help give women a new outlook.

BETH: You can help by figuring out what I did to my bank account.

JULIE: So where is all your money going?

BETH: I think it's because I'm still paying off my car stereo.

JULIE: Your car doesn't even run. It's on cinder blocks.

BETH: I'm gradually paying to have it fixed up.

JULIE: And you started with the stereo?

BETH: That is vital to every car that is worth its salt.

JULIE: Unbelievable.

TINA: It is a nice stereo though.

BETH: You know it's good when you can't hear for an hour after using it.
