"And my fucking mother dropped me the fuck off there with seven dollars and sixty-some odd fucking cents on her way to sucking cock in Georgia."
Al Swearengen[src]

An unknown woman birthed Al Swearengen, but only raised him as far as dumping him outside an orphanage with nothing but $7.60 before continuing on her way to "sucking cock in Georgia".[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Al Swearengen's mother was mentioned in Al's monologue during the lead-up to his murder of Reverend Smith in the Season 1 finale "Sold Under Sin".
