Free Ride (2013) Movie Script

Gas, grass or ass.
Nobody rides for free.
At least that's what my mom says.
Please go away!
Don't you fucking touch her!
Don't you fucking touch her! Mom!
Sandy? It's Chris.
I got to get the girls out of here.
He almost killed me tonight.
Calm down.
Go pack yourself up.
Come over here.
Yeah, for sure.
You got to get out of there.
Going to the ring tonight?
Cool. Everyone's going.
Meet me outside.
I want to show you something.
Class, your homework
assignment for tomorrow
is chapter 5, questions 1, 2, 3.
And then after you're done with that
you can start on your next assignment,
which will be chapter 10,
one through seven...
Is there something funny
that you'd like to share
with the class?
Hurry up.
You got me in trouble,
you dodo bird.
You're the dodo bird.
Come on.
What's going on?
We're going to Florida.
Here. So that your eyes don't
burn out from all the sunshine.
Come on, get in, get in.
Come on, get in.
I'm going to need a co-pilot.
I'll be damned if I'm going to take
any lame asses across state line.
We either do this together or not at all.
I'm not a lame ass.
Why are we going to Florida?
I called Sandy. She said
she could get me a job.
It's as simple as that.
Does Grandma know?
I'll tell her when we get there.
I need to get down there
and make some money first.
I'm not going to sit
here and listen to her
tell me what a fucking loser I am for
having to move us back into her house.
Is that okay with you?
You're either in or you're out.
Travelin' 77 south.
There's a house of cards
And it's coming down
There's a beating of a drum
But it makes no sound
There's a howling wind
but the trees ain't swaying
There's a hidden truth in
the words you're not saying
It's a better way
And the way is out
Lock your doors. We wouldn't
want some trucker crawling in here
looking for a warm bed full of ladies.
Yeah, sure you wouldn't.
Good night, John-Boy.
It's not going to be forever.
What if it sucks?
Then we'll go back to Grandma's.
Is it just going to be
the three of us?
Just the three of us.
You promise?
Yeah, I promise.
Good night, John-Boy.
Good night, Elizabeth.
Good night, Mary Ellen.
Shine on
Every broken mile
Smile on
Your little ones
Rise out
Of another southern sky
On your little ones
Shine on your little ones
On your little ones
Okay, wait, wait, wait.
Wait, wait.
Let me park the car first.
Hey, girls.
Whoa, Nellie, don't spill my beer.
Come on. Welcome to Florida, baby.
But the cleaning part
is just for now.
The boss man has other
stuff coming up,
but you're going to have to
meet him before that happens.
Do you think he's going to like me?
He's going to love you.
Well, you're good-looking, for one.
What does that have to
do with cleaning houses?
It doesn't.
But it matters.
What's wrong with you?!
Come back here, Shauna!
I don't know why you didn't
just ask her if you could have it.
I don't want her to think I'm
so charity case, that's why.
Where did you get that?
The gum in your mouth.
back there.
Back where?
In the store.
We didn't buy any gum, Shell.
Well, I couldn't hold it,
so I put it in my pocket
and I forgot it was there.
Spit it out.
Spit it out.
Okay, we're going to go back,
and you're going to tell the
store lady you stole it.
She'll probably make you
give something back.
Because we're not trash, Shell.
We don't steal.
I didn't mean to.
Okay, but you did. Come on.
This sucks.
Sorry, bud.
Let's all eat.
Let's make some pasta.
All right, wish me luck.
For what? Cleaning?
Good luck!
Thank you, Shell.
She'll like living here.
I'm going to get the food.
It's too late to turn back
Is that a fucking orange tree?
They call it the Venice of America.
Can I get one of those?
This is strange
Are you afraid of birds?
Good. They're good security.
Are you fucking kidding me?
All right, nobody's here. All you
got to do is dust the place.
You'll find everything
you need in the kitchen.
All right.
Pick you up at noon.
Cool? All right.
Hey, guys.
Sign here.
Oh, I'm just the cleaning lady.
Yeah, yeah.
Sign it anyway.
Hey. What's up, mi amiga? Hmm?
What are you doing
down here, Sandy?
Yeah, but doing what?
You know, same shit
I was doing in Ohio,
just bigger.
Jeez, Chris, it's just pot.
How much bigger?
Can't say.
Sorry, chica.
Mum's the word.
Says who?
The boss man.
That's just the way he does it.
All right, look.
Cleaning's the first rung.
After that, if he likes your work
then you can do the fun stuff.
And if not, well,
then let's just say
you got to find yourself
a new line of work.
Oh, yeah? Like what?
I don't know. Got a nice ass.
Maybe a little go-go dancing.
If you think I'm going
back to that shit.
All right, all right.
Let me try and work some magic.
Thanks for coming so
quick. Come here.
All right, now the fun starts.
So this dude Ray, this hot dude,
he's going to ask you for
change in a white pickup truck.
And I just hand it to him?
That's it.
All right.
Are you sure you're
all right doing this?
Because this is the
last stop, Chris.
He's going to be expecting
my car. Take it.
Wow, Sandy. Either you
got better-looking
or I'm about to meet the new girl
boss man's been talking about.
You better not let Sandy
hear you say that.
It'll be our little secret.
How do you know I can keep one?
Just a feeling.
You got some change for me?
Look, if you ever need a
tour guide or anything,
my hourly rate is
pretty reasonable.
Ray. So I guess the position
of the tour guide is taken.
Nah. I just like to
get first names.
Part of my redneck upbringing.
In that case...
I'll show you around
the Everglades.
You, uh...
You might recognize some
family members there.
Well, now I'm
definitely not calling.
Oh, what a day, huh?
So you, uh, you live here?
By yourself?
I wish.
Ah, the parents, huh? I get it.
Yeah, my mom.
So, what's, uh...
what's your mom do?
She cleans.
Relax, sister.
It's the moment of truth.
Boss man's having his
birthday party tonight,
and he would be
delighted to meet you.
Look good.
What? This isn't working for you?
But I smell so good.
You know, you might want
to try staying inside the lines.
What's the word, perm?
Come on. Look at you.
I look good.
Look, don't spend it
all in one place,
and make sure Shell
gets something to eat
that isn't sugar, all right?
You look nice, by the way.
Thank you.
Get your shoes on.
Miss Ohio.
Mm-mm. I'm glad you could finally
grace us with your presence.
And this is, well,
we like to call him the Captain.
Hi. Christina.
I heard some kind of
rumor about being able
to eat off the kitchen
floor at the bird house.
Wasn't like that when
Sandy was at it.
Come on.
You know where my skills lie, hmm?
So, uh, where did you two meet?
We danced together at this
place called Ember's Tomb.
Oh, boy. Lunch shift.
What a shithole.
You work in the houses?
Not for long.
Yeah, of course.
Come on, follow me.
I want to show you something.
Nice to meet you.
Would you like to dance?
I've heard some real good
things about you, Christina.
You must be the boss man.
Hey, got a cigarette?
Your dad know you out here?
No. He doesn't care.
I'm upstairs if you
ever need anything.
Hey. I hope your ass
is free tonight.
Why? What's up?
We're celebrating.
Fucking what, already?
Your first trip out.
Boss man wants you
on the water ASAP.
Apparently you got potential.
All right, first things first.
The rules.
Follow me.
One: no sampling the load.
Two: never, ever throw a load.
And three: no relationships
inside the organization.
The boss man does not like
the right hand knowing
what the left hand's doing.
I'm not fucking around here, Chris.
You got to pay attention.
I'm here for you, Sandy.
Whatever you need.
All right.
First thing we got to
do is find a boat.
How about that one?
Too big. We're looking for a
30- to 40-foot fishing boat.
Anything bigger draws
too much attention.
Anything smaller doesn't
have enough storage.
All right, Chris.
Let's see what you got.
This guy's cool.
Anyone aboard?
Can I help you?
Uh, I was wondering if
you rent your boat.
Sure do, but I won't
be around to run it.
I've got some relatives in town.
You got to start thinking like a sailor.
So you only want to buy food that keeps,
because you never know how long
you're going to be out there.
You want canned, dry, pickled,
smoked, but only the good stuff.
Look, Chris, we're moving
drugs, not rockets.
Just be good at your job,
and look good doing it.
My, oh, my.
Must be destiny.
You know Ray, the Captain.
And this is Duane. He's the
best fisherman in Florida.
You make good coffee?
I've been told.
Well, you better,
because we got a hot date in
the morning with this charmer,
and you don't want to see him behind
the wheel when Sandy's making coffee.
This is my new friend.
Rain. You want some?
Here I go falling
down, down, down
My mind is a blank
My head is spinning
around and around
As I go deep into
the funnel of love
It's such a crazy,
crazy feeling
I get weak in the knees
My poor old head is reeling
As I go deep into
the funnel of love
I tried and I tried
to run and hide
Even tried to run away
You just can't run from
the funnel of love
What do the stars say, captain?
Are we in trouble?
Sure looks that way.
How long are you going to be gone?
A couple of days.
I didn't think you guys
were going to make it.
Hey, beautiful.
What kind of bait you using?
I'm not.
Well, you got to offer the
fish something, darling.
I thought it was just
supposed to look like
we're out here fishing.
I mean, it is, you know?
But we might as well see what Poseidon has
to offer while we're doing it, right?
Let's see what we got here.
All right. Okay.
Actually, you know what?
It's bad luck to have someone
bait your hook. Come here.
Come here.
You know, I never took you
for the squeamish type.
I'm not. It's just I've never
used something so big.
You give me a minnow
and I'm all over it.
Well, it's the same principle.
You're going to want to get it
on there nice and secure,
and leave just enough dangle
to get their attention.
Flip that switch.
Come on, we got the mothership.
Think you got this, Miss Ohio?
Don't you worry about cops?
No. International waters.
Where does it go from here?
You know, the boss's houses,
where we hold it until it's
picked up and goes north.
Get your shit packed, girls.
Get up.
Well? Come on.
It's all yours.
Oh, wow.
All right.
I think I can handle this.
No, no, no, no. Let me
show you how it's done.
All right.
All right.
Told you.
No way.
Come here.
Hi. Hi.
Hi, bud. What's your name?
Sandy told Mommy
it's a gift from the boss man.
What if he doesn't like us?
Then we'll...
We'll run away on the horse
and call Grandma to come get us.
Can we do that?
Grandma said I'm an adult now,
and I can leave whenever I want.
I mean take the horse.
She said it was a gift, right?
Then it's ours.
Turn the light off.
Come here.
Do you want to keep the horse?
Then you got to be cool, MJ.
Boss man's storing
some stuff in there,
and we need to be cool about it.
No one but me, you or Shell
goes inside the barn.
You understand?
Because I'd like us to
stay put for a while.
You look stupid.
Mom says it makes me look smart.
fresh-squeezed Florida orange juice
for my two lucky ladies.
Why are we lucky?
Because I took the day off so
I could make you breakfast
and drive you to your
first day of school.
But the bus comes right
to the driveway.
I know, but I thought
it would be a nice treat.
But it comes right to the driveway.
And I want to watch my two
girls walk into that school
with all those other rich kids.
No, but I want to ride the bus.
Why are you giving me such a
hard time about this, MJ?
Because I don't want to be dropped off
like a little kid. I want to ride the bus.
Remember, baby,
you're the smartest girl here.
It's so cool.
They have a treasure box in class
that only the good girls get to see.
And I already have a best
friend, named Megan.
Great. So?
It's okay.
She has a boyfriend.
What? I do not.
Really? Who?
The boy down the street.
Wait, no, no. And he's not.
His locker is next to mine.
Jeez, spaz.
Hey, hey.
Enough, enough. All right,
I got to show you guys something.
Holy shit.
Hey, watch your mouth.
Okay, here's how it goes.
That's for Bugsy. That's not.
Mm, that smells like homecoming.
Oh, yeah. And I'm thinking of
having some homecoming dinner
over at Duke's joint tonight.
You want to join me?
Well, as long as he's
still got his mom
chained to the stove, absolutely.
They're stranded.
How can you tell?
The flare.
Shit. Is everything covered?
Uh, mostly. But we didn't
get everything underneath.
Can't we just turn around and
pretend like we didn't see them?
No. It's illegal to leave the
scene of a vessel in distress.
And they saw us.
Coast Guard.
Fuck me.
Hey, there. What's the trouble?
We've been taking on water.
Can you transfer us to port?
Of course. Come onboard.
This is one beautiful skiff.
A container, huh?
All those cargo ships
must have created
a debris field on the way out.
I will be making a thorough
and detailed report
once we get back to dry land.
Work or pleasure?
Both. I'm working...
...they are pleasuring.
It's a honeymoon job.
Oh, I see.
I've been on a few of those myself.
Gentlemen, would you care
to join me on the bridge?
I got a nip of 12-year-old scotch
I can't wait to break into.
No, sir. We are still on duty.
Although a cup of joe
always seems to calm my nerves.
Of course.
Ray, would you mind making
the officer a cup of coffee?
Oh, no, no. I don't want
to bother your hires.
I know my way around a galley.
Oh, no, no.
Come on, Captain. Tell him.
He wants my cup of coffee.
I mean, anything
for the coastguard.
Christina, would you mind bringing
it up to the bridge when it's ready?
Of course.
You. You have mahogany?
That was fucking crazy, man.
I mean, those sea scouts
were on our fucking boat.
That's your cut.
It won't bite you.
Sure it won't.
They're biting me!
Come here!
Where were you?
Up, up. Arms up. Arms up.
I leave you for one day.
You kidding me?
It's okay.
Shh. It's okay.
It's okay. Hey, hey.
Shh. Look at me. It's okay.
Two more shots.
He is hung like a fucking horse.
Hey, how do you feel?
A little nervous.
Terry, this is my girl, Chris.
Nice to meet you, Girl Chris.
Nice to meet you, Boy Terry.
Well, as a great
fisherman once said,
better is the end of a
thing when it's beginning.
I have no idea what the
fuck you just said.
No one does till
they're at the end.
Hey, what's going on?
Sandy didn't show.
Neither did the Captain.
What do you mean didn't show?
They left. They're not coming back.
You must be the hired help.
I'm the Big Kahuna,
but my friends call me BK.
Ray, what's going on?
I don't know.
Captain grabbed Sandy
late last night
and skipped town.
The boss man's pissed.
So just lay low for a bit.
Yeah. Okay.
What's going on?
What are you doing up?
You're back.
Go back to bed, baby.
We're still going to the
beach in the morning, right?
Yeah, everything's cool.
Just go back to bed.
Oh, God! You're fucking crazy!
Not very exciting,
but if I had to pick one,
if it was the last day
on planet Earth,
I'd pick ABBA over the Bee Gee's.
Everybody but you.
Are you kidding me?
They're the hottest shit
right now. Really far out.
Like, right now there's no current...
Nobody sounds like that.
Okay, yeah but...
No, but the others are legends.
Innovational. Innovational.
Who's a legend?
You're out of your...
You've lost your mind.
He's a jerk. I hate him.
You don't even know him.
He never says hi. And all he
does is just look at your boobs.
Would you like to go on
the slide, Mr. Doodles?
Oh, yes. I would love
to go on the slide.
Yeah, I love...
Are you fucking kidding me, MJ?
You get back here!
You want to fuck up everything
we got going here?!
Why does it matter?
Because I told you no
one goes in there.
So fucking what?
So fucking what?!
So fucking what?! Who the fuck
do you think you are?
Do you understand what
you could have done?
Stop hurting her!
Get off me.
Get out of my room!
Jesus, I hate you!
Get out! Shell, get out!
I'm leaving.
You think you can stick around,
or are you planning on
prowling the neighbourhood?
We should have never left Ohio.
Because I don't want
you ruining your life
with the shithead next door?
Because Grandma took care
of Shell and I didn't have to.
Don't worry about taking
care of your sister.
I'll find someone who's thankful
to have a roof over their head
and doesn't mind a little
responsibility in return.
I'm disappointed, MJ.
Stop acting like it was so
fucking great at your grandma's.
Why do some look
bigger than others?
I don't know.
Why are some brighter?
Maybe they were born that way.
God wanted it that way, I guess.
I don't think so.
I think they were all born bright,
and then after a while,
all the stuff around
them, dust and stuff,
covered them up.
So you just can't see them.
But they're still
bright underneath.
It's still there if you
look close enough.
That's why you're going
to be the doctor
and I'm going to ride horses.
Who the fuck is that?
You need a job?
Yeah, yeah. No problem.
I have to leave for a few days.
Zada, you can take
the reins from here?
All right, give me a kiss.
Can we go to the beach
when you get back?
MJ really wants to.
No, I don't.
Yes, she does.
All right, I'll call you when I get back.
Bye, girls.
I'm already going to the beach.
Don't worry about it.
But you got nice colours.
I'm so white.
I know.
No, but it's beautiful. It's nice.
You got to be fucking kidding me.
What happened?
He just hit a fucking sandbar.
Hey, I usually don't come
in this way, all right?
It's low tide and we're loaded.
Push! Push!
...three, push!
Oh! I think it moved a little.
And a push!
Come on.
Fuck it. Fucker!
It's just too heavy, man.
Tell me something I don't
fucking know, Duane!
Come on!
We're sitting ducks.
We just wait for the
tide and we'll be fine.
We're throwing it.
We are not throwing load.
Radio the boss man.
He wants me to go down for him
and there's no fucking way.
Let me just think for a minute.
There's no fucking time to think, man!
The sun is up! The cops are going
to be crawling on my fucking boat!
I don't owe the boss man nothing.
So grab a bale and get the
fuck over the rail here.
I'm not touching it.
We have a problem.
Did you know that the
study of human behaviour
first began with the
study of animals?
Darwin discovered that animals
exhibit patterns of
behaviour based on survival
and natural selection.
And once you control the variables,
those behaviors also can
be limited, manipulated.
In theory,
if an animal is taken care of,
nurtured, fed...
it will exhibit behaviour
that can be predicted.
But every so often
a random gene enters the mix
and changes the
direction of the group.
And it has to be extracted.
Before the entire herd can
duplicate the pattern.
Boss, I did not throw that load.
I swear to God.
You tell me exactly what happened.
The rules exist for a
reason, Christina.
But I'm sure you already
understand that.
Dollar a pound.
Your cut, plus BK and Duane's.
They won't be needing theirs.
It pays to be more
intelligent than an animal.
I'll be right out.
...The impact felt all
throughout the community.
Tonight, the district
attorney is saying
it was all surrounding
one thing: drugs.
Nicole Jacobs with new information.
What do you have, Nicole?
The bodies of two men,
Duane Hoffman and Brian Klay III
were just discovered lifeless
in front of the Ocean View Hotel.
The circumstances
surrounding this incident
are still under investigation.
What can I do you for, beautiful?
Whisky and water.
MJ, put the magazine down.
I love you very much.
You know that, don't you?
If anything were
to ever happen...
What's going to happen to you?
Nothing's going to happen to me.
Nothing's going to happen.
I just...
I just want to make sure
that you know what to do...
if anything ever did.
I know you're big girls now,
but if something does...
I want you to call your grandma
so she can come get you, okay?
What's going to happen, Mom?
Nothing's going to happen.
You're going to need a
larger boat than usual.
Big enough to fit six tonnes.
New group.
Get someone else to handle it.
No, I can handle it.
You wanted to make an impression.
I figured I could
trust you to do that.
I'll take care of it.
Guess who's going out tonight?
I have no idea.
We are.
No, we're not.
Wait, wait. No, no. Please.
Please, please, please,
please, please.
It took me some real bo-jo
to get these tickets.
Get what?
Tickets to Blue Comet Cowboys.
Hey, man, I got to work. I mean,
maybe if you had given me a little notice.
Can't you skip?
Wait, I'll go.
Absolutely not.
Wait, why not?
Because why?
I finished off my homework.
It's a school night.
We wouldn't be late,
would we, Rain?
Nope, not too late.
See? Mom, we won't be late. Please.
I don't have time for this.
It's my first concert.
What do you want me to say?
Oh, my God. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much.
Rain, I'm coming!
Looking good.
Now, since I know these dudes,
we're going to be going
backstage and shit.
So you got to be cool.
All right.
You ready?
Will cause tyrants to tremble
Or sink at our guns
like the Cumberland's crew
That's not a bad song.
You know, I thought we
would try something
a little more civilized tonight.
Well, isn't that nice.
Yeah. Beautiful.
And I bet it tastes good too.
Smells good.
Can I have some?
Hola, chica.
Cmo ests? How are you?
Good, good. You got
something for me?
Yes. The yacht behind us.
It's coming.
Ah, gracias.
Nothing like a cold
beer on a hot day.
I know, right? Salud.
So, does boss man...
Where does he have you stay?
In Lauderdale.
Ah. You live by the beach.
No. Our holding house
is at the canal.
Ah. The big ones.
He really knows how to
take care of his girls.
Yes, he does.
"My fate cannot be mastered.
"Only collaborated.
"Nor am I the captain of my soul.
Just its noisiest passenger."
Aldous Huxley.
Good, good, good, good, good.
All right.
"Sometimes we do what we have
to do to do what we want to do."
Who said that?
Christina Milland.
Hear, hear.
Hear, hear.
I just want to forget about you
I just want to find someone new
The world is crashing down
Since you ain't been around
You took a shotgun to my head
I'm not lovesick, I'm not dead
'Cause the world
is crashing down
Since you ain't been around
You took a shotgun to my head
I'm not lovesick, I'm not dead
It's a nice moon tonight.
Going to rain tomorrow.
How do you know?
Ring around the moon, rain soon.
See the light reflecting
off the cirrostratus
in front of the moon?
It's associated with warm
fronts and moisture.
You learn something new every day.
You can certainly try.
How about a nightcap?
Nah, too much work.
Got a load tomorrow.
All right. Good night.
Good night.
I'm not lovesick, I'm not dead
You know, we could leave.
There's three of me.
It's not that simple.
Nothing good ever is.
I'm in, Chris.
You just tell me when.
Hey, Ray.
You got a call.
Says he's the boss man.
I meant what I said.
Be careful.
I don't want you
disappearing on me.
Come here.
I'm not going anywhere.
Stop tripping, lady.
You're the one that needs
to start tripping, man.
Hey, because when I tell
Joey, your ass is grass.
He doesn't even know
who you are, lady.
That's bullshit.
Dude, that's bullshit.
I gave that guy the best
head of his fucking life.
What are you doing? No!
Get the...
What the fuck, dude?
What the fuck are you looking at?
What the fuck are you looking
at you stupid, dumb bitch?
What, do you think
you're so fucking cool?
What is she doing in there?
She was invited.
Now get your skanky ass out of here
before I throw it out.
Get the fuck out here!
Get the fuck out here, MJ!
Why not?!
Why not? You said
that you knew them.
Because, MJ.
Because why would he want me, huh?
He could get a fucking 15-year-old
to suck his fucking cock!
Wait, no...
Get in the car!
Wait, I wouldn't do that, Rain.
Get the fuck off!
We don't do that shit here.
Get her out of here!
Go! You need to get
the fuck out of here.
Get your ass up and go.
You're not moving fast enough.
Fuck you, you fucking...
Open the fucking door.
Open the fucking door!
No one loves me.
Nobody loves me.
You stupid fucking whore.
Shut up! You stupid, fucking bitch.
You worthless piece of shit.
Please, please.
Would you mind giving me a
ride when you get done?
Been calling the house.
Slow down. Please, God, slow down.
Shut the fuck up! Shut the fuck
up, you stupid, fucking whore!
Rain, please.
Shut up, shut up, shut up!
Shut the fuck up!
Please, somebody help.
Somebody help me!
Somebody help me!
Was it the mother?
Oh, my God.
Look what happened to MJ.
You're the mother?
She can't speak,
but she keeps trying to.
So I brought her that to write on.
Baby, I'm right here.
Don't try to talk. I'm right here.
I'm right here.
In case you need it.
I've never been very good at this.
I failed at...
almost everything.
I'm trying, MJ.
I'm really trying.
I shouldn't have let you go.
It's just that...
I was in a hurry.
And your face...
you just wanted to go so badly.
I am so
fucking stupid.
So stupid.
Thank you, baby.
I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
Gas, grass or ass.
Nobody rides for free.
On August 7th, 1978,
agents acting on
reliable information
from an undercover informant
that passed contraband
directly to the defendant
conducted a successful raid
at 142 Tropicana Circle.
Agents were conducting a
search of the premises
when a vehicle containing
Christina Milland
stopped in front of the house.
Miss Milland was a passenger
in the vehicle,
and had been targeted in
an ongoing observation
of the Pink Coral Inn,
a known location for
drug transactions.
Christina Milland
refused to cooperate
by not giving her
real name or address.
Photos of the defendant
were found in the house
in the same room as
women's clothing.
"Miss Milland was arrested in
front of the house at 3:30 a.m.,
"just one hour after
the initial raid.
"They seized over 15,000
pounds of marijuana
"with a street value
of over $3 million.
It is the largest drug seizure
in the county's history."
Well, thank you for sharing, Shell,
and, uh, being at show and tell.
Is the person in the article
someone you know?
She's my mom.
So how'd it go?
I don't know.
I don't think they believed me.
Told you they'd think
it was weird, dodo bird.
You're the dodo bird.
Oh, no.
MJ's driving?
Sure is. But you watch
that lead foot, all right?
You got precious cargo back here.
Yes, ma'am.
Don't make me regret this.
Okay, so you put your
foot on the brake.
I know.
Okay, put your foot on the brake.
Give it a little bit
of gas, though.
Okay. Okay, it's on the brake.
Come on.
It ain't no joke
This time
We pull the perfect crime
And now it's written
On every sign
She's starving all her life
Well, I'd say
without even trying
Everything's going
to be all right
Everything's going
to be all right now
Being a mom
the only...
the only thing that a
mother thinks about
is taking care of her
children, no matter what.
And I think a lot of the drug stuff
where all the women are in jail,
I think that's a big part
of just trying to take care
of your family, you know?
If you can't get any
government help
or you can't find a job,
then you resort to other things.
That's the way it is.
You do what you got
to do, you know,
to take care of your
kids and your family.
And that's what I did.
To sail the sea
Is what I dream about
To ride the waves
When I am setting out
Oh, happy day
When I sail the waves
Oh, what I long
The mighty ocean wide
To let me roam
Into the other side
You'll never know
Just how far I'll go
To sail the sea
It's all I think about
For one more day
I cannot go without
I cannot stay
I must sail away
And as I roll into the ocean
How happy I will be
Goodbye, land-loving strangers
Please say a prayer for me
I'll steer the ship
Through darkened seas at night
And use the stars
To guide my journey bright
Oh, what a sight
When I sail away
High winds and waves
This is a deadly ride
How can it be
That this is how I die?
Who cried for me
When I'm going insane?
A sinking ship
Out on the ocean blue
It seems as if
My sailing days are through
I'll know my drift
It's so sad, but true
Maybe the tide
Will bring me back someday
I guess for now
The sea will be my grave
For I must brave
When I sail away
And as I sink into the ocean
On a ship that's lost at sea
Goodbye, land-loving strangers
Don't shed a tear for me
