During Act 2
Cory Being Agressive To Troy
The son of Troy Maxon, Cory, he becomes careless with his actions. One time after his dad, Troy spoke to his bestfriend Bono; he sits on the steps in front of his house and sings to his drunk self. Cory comes walking in the fence and tries to maneuver pass Troy. Troy being drunk he takes it as a sign disrespects, so he grabs cory's leg and pushes him back of the steps. "You just gonna walk over the top of me without saying excuse me (85). Troy asks, Cory gets defensive, "You dont count around here anymore (85). Cory get deffensive, "You dont count around here anymore (85)" Cory said this because he feels that his father had an affair with some woman and had a child out of her. He feels he shouldn't even be living with the family anymore.
Troy erupts and explains to Cory that the house is his and it took him 15 years to pay for it. This clearly shows that Troy still feels he has a place in the house but beyond everyone else. He built the fences to keep his family together, so if anyone wants to isolate someone; Its going to be Troy making that decision. The dramatic scene escalates to a much bigger problem. Cory picks up a bat after being shoved by Troy and refuses to leave the yard after Troy had asked him to swerve. Cory takes a swing at Troy but misses on purpose. This shows that Cory is not ready to step up to take the plate and take charge. It shows that he still loves his father to hurt him. Eventually Troy gains possession of the bat and tells Cory to get it. Cory walks out the yard slowly in a defeated manner. This outta taught Cory a lesson never to stand up to the plate especially when his father is pitching.
