I'm just asking you to be extra careful.
-All I do is careful. My whole job is to be careful.
Well, Beau, just be a little more careful.
The problem is, the truth is the utility company let their grid run down, and my people are out there
risking their lives to fix it and then I gotta go out there and bust my ass with a bunch of teenagers to get it done.
What is a lineman? Um... A lineman is formerly known as an electrical line worker. Back in 1943, they...
See that line up there?
The stove, toaster, radio. Well, when I'm at work I'm making sure all those things have electricity so that my family has everything they need while I'm away.
But most of this grid is over 30 years old, and it's our job to replace every inch before storm season hits. They don't like advertising this, but being a lineman is the fourth most dangerous job in the United States.
I'm going to work, mama.
What are you working at?
-Told you, I'm a lineman now.
Lineman. Your Daddy was a lineman. Climbed up one of them poles. Got himself killed. Left us with nothing. ... You go on out there, okay. You just get yourself killed. I won't mourn for you. I won't come to your funeral. I won't!
Beau, you know what mom used to say?
-She used to say Beau is so lazy that he'd quit breathing if he didn't think it'd kill him.
Yeah, I wanna know what you're thinking. It's not me, it's you. You can't get on with your life. Hell, I feel sorry for you. You're just holding on to Bailey 'cause you got nothing left.Nothing left.
I wanna be just like that man. And one day I hope I'm half the man he was so I can toe the line just like he did.
What do they want from us,
-What do they want from us? We're lineman, Beau. It's what we do.
You got that right.
