James Mayo, Andrew and Robert's father, gets angry with Andrew because if he goes to sea he will be leaving all of his responsibilities on the farm.

James calls Andrew a liar and tells him he's only running away because Rob got Ruth (the girl both Robert and Andrew wanted to be with). Andrew and James continue to have a verbal argument that culminates with James telling Andrew, "Yes - go! - go! - You're no son o' mine - no son o' mine! You can go to hell if you want to! Don't let me find you here - in the mornin' - or - or - I'll throw you out!
