The judge handed Stanley an 18-month sentence and let him choose between jail and Camp Green Lake.
Clyde "Sweet Feet" Livingston explained that he was an orphan and felt especially connected to that shelter because he grew up there.
X-Ray insisted that Stanley should hand over anything he dug up because it wouldn't be fair if he got rewarded when others (like himself) had been there for months and found nothing.
"Good thinking, Zig-Zag! Yeah, it must belong to him, huh?"
The feather from his hat
Can we talk about how PERFECT Sam was? He literally fixed up Miss Katherine's whole schoolhouse. Does your MCM even text you back???
The Warden tells Stanley and Mr. Sir that she makes her special nail polish with rattlesnake venom, which is "completely harmless...when it's dry."
It's Sam's boat, which he named after his donkey, Mary Lou.
Right before Trout kills Sam on the lake, there's a quick scene that shows what happened to poor Mary Lou. BTW, anybody else still trying to recover from Sam's death? I became totally jaded at the tender age of 9 because of that.
He's her grandfather. I know you remember that ICONIC scene where they're arguing because she's tired of digging, and he screams, "THAT'S JUST TOO DAMN BAD!"
"It's been a long time since El Paso, Marion."
But Stanley noted that they'd be worth millions now. And he's kind enough to split all the treasure with Zero, who's basically the whole reason he managed to break the Yelnats family curse. NAME A BETTER FRIENDSHIP STORY.
