‘Fences’ (Troy): “A man got to take care of his family”

TROY: Like you? I go out of here every morning… bust my butt… putting up with them c— every day… cause I like you? You about the biggest fool I ever saw. (Pause.) It’s my job. It’s my responsibility! You understand that? A man got to take care of his family. You live in my house… sleep you behind on my bedclothes… fill you belly up with my food… cause you my son. You my flesh and blood. Not ’cause I like you! Cause it’s my duty to take care of you.
