B. B.

See Cousin Bobby

Cousin Bobby

He has no spoken lines and does not appear onstage, but the actor playing Uncle Peck speaks to him in a monologue. In a scene announced as "Uncle Peck teaches Cousin Bobby how to fish," Bobby pulls in a pompano and then cries until Peck cuts the fish loose and releases it. Then Peck asks if Bobby would like to go to a secret tree house with him, drink beer, and eat crab salad. Peck's behavior toward Bobby is similar to how he treats Li'l Bit in that he gives her liquor and driving lessons and swears her to secrecy. There is no indication of where this scene fits chronologically with the rest.

Bobby is first mentioned early in the play, as an example of how nicknames in the family center on genitalia. His nickname is "B. B." for "Blue Balls."
