Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) Poster

Raymond J. Barry: Pa Cox



  • Preacher : [referring to Dewey's song]  You think we don't know what you're talking about when you say "take my hand"?

    Dewey Cox : What do you mean? It's about holding hands.

    Pa Cox : You watch your mouth.

    Preacher : You know who's got hands? The devil. And he uses them for holding.

  • Pa Cox : I'm sorry, Dewey. I just never realized until just this moment how easy it is to cut someone in half with a machete.

    Dewey Cox : It is, right?

  • Pa Cox : You're not half the boy Nate was. You're not even half the boy that the top half of Nate was after you cut him in half.

    Dewey - Age 8 : So you're saying I'm less than a quarter of the boy Nate was?

  • Dewey Cox : What happened?

    Pa Cox : I'll tell you what happened. We were readying for bed when your song comes on the radio.

    [the scene switches to the Cox's house with "Walk Hard" playing on the radio] 

    Ma Cox : It's Dewey! Your son is talented. You should be proud.

    Pa Cox : Well, I must admit, it is kind of... catchy.

    Ma Cox : Dance with me Pa.

    [the two begin dancing] 

    Pa Cox : It does make you kind of want to move, doesn't it?

    Ma Cox : It sure does.

    Pa Cox : Maybe I have been kind of hard on little Dewey.

    Ma Cox : Maybe you have.

    [Pa twists Ma, accidentally causing her to lose her balance and fall out the window] 

    Pa Cox : You alright, ma?

    Ma Cox : I'm alright!

    [the radio falls out of the window and hits Ma in the head, killing her] 

    Dewey Cox : [starting to cry]  She lost her balance... and fell out the window... and then the radio crushed her head?

    Pa Cox : While she was dancing to your song. I thought you should know what your music does. It kills people. You made her happy, and it killed her. If Nate was alive this never would've happened.

    [Pa begins to leave. As he turns the hall, he comes back around] 

    Pa Cox : Wrong kid died!

  • [singing while moving hay] 

    Pa Cox : The wrong kid died / The wrong kid died...

  • [while Dewey's in and out of conscience in rehab] 

    Pa Cox : Dewey, I don't know if you can hear me in there... but the wrong kid died!
