The Ticket (2016) Movie Script

Is he in his room?
He's sleeping.
Let's not make any sound.
I thought we weren't
making any sound.
Where are you?
- I'm right here.
- Oh, there you are.
He wouldn't listen to my
free throw shooting advice.
You're the blind father
giving basketball advice now?
Yes. Yes, I am.
I used to be quite
the all-star player, you know?
- Mm-hmm.
- I was!
How's my favorite
blind man doing?
Still very much in the dark.
Now we're even.
Will you do
the silly dance for me?
- No.
- Come on, please.
- No way.
- Come on.
You're really
gonna make me do it?
I'm not buying up.
Oh, fine.
I bet you look
so good right now.
Oh, Bob told me a story today.
Honey, I have
to get up early tomorrow.
Fine. Okay. I won't tell you.
It's a good story, though.
Okay, fine. Let's hear it.
Hmm. All right, so...
There's this man...
And he really wants
to win the lottery.
So, he prays to god.
Every night for 50 years.
Night, after night,
after night, he prays.
"Please god, please,
let me win the lottery."
And finally,
an angel goes to god,
and he says,
"god, why don't we let
this guy win?"
And you know what god says?
God says,
"i want to..."
"But he's never bought
a lottery ticket."
- Oh.
- You see?
- It was a good story.
- Yeah, it's all right.
What's wrong?
Dear god, I'm thankful
for everything I have.
I am deeply satisfied with
my life and everything in it.
And I live for today,
and I enjoy what I do.
I do not compare myself
to others.
Yeah, son.
Is everything okay?
Yeah. Yeah, of course it is.
I was just getting some air.
Here, let's go back inside.
You have school tomorrow.
Come on.
Oh, my god.
What's wrong?
- I... I can see you.
- Huh?
I can see you.
How did this happen?
How did this happen?
How did this happen?
I don't... I don't...
How can a pituitary tumor
just disappear overnight?
It didn't disappear, it shrank.
It is rare, but not unheard of.
But the good news is
it's normally pushing up
against the optic chiasm.
Which is how he can see?
We'll only keep him here
for a few days.
We just wanna make sure
there isn't cause for concern.
So, you need to admit him?
Just for a few days.
Welcome home!
They're brushing Joan out.
Oh, and I called your work,
talked to Bob.
He's gonna talk to them.
And hr told you to take
as much time as you need.
And they're fine with you not
coming in
until you feel up for it.
So, um...
Here, let me get that.
I can do that.
Oh, I know.
I'm just gonna call work
and tell them
that I'm not feeling well.
Stay home.
I need to do
something with my hair.
Now that you can see me.
I have no idea what to do now.
I'll go make us some lunch.
I'll... I'll be fine.
You know?
- I'll be fine.
- Yeah, I know.
Here I am.
This is crazy.
I know.
Took me 30 minutes
to find that place.
Does it hurt?
No. Nah.
No, not at all.
What did the doctor say?
Couldn't explain it.
So, it's a miracle?
Well, you could say that.
Are you gonna tell me
what happened to your face?
Mom said not to tell you.
She... she saw this?
She came at lunch.
They called her from school.
What happened?
Got into a fight.
It's not a big deal.
Well, who gave it to ya?
Don't worry about it.
Mom... mom said
she'll take care of it.
Jonah, who gave it to you?
You don't need
to worry about it.
Who told you that?
I just don't want you
to expect too much
and be disappointed.
Why would I be disappointed?
It's a little sad-looking.
Come on.
What do you think?
Do you believe this?
Hang on. Let me put my bag down.
Come on.
Well, say something.
What do you think?
This is so strange.
I know.
Aw, I want to see
the silly dance.
Thank you.
We're gonna have
a better life now.
We already do.
Not just my eyes.
Even if it is just your eyes.
I'm gonna get that promotion.
We can go on vacation.
We can get a bigger house.
I like our house.
One with a big backyard.
Take you shopping.
Thank you
for calling millennium realty.
How can I help you?
They say the point is,
in Africa,
when the sun comes up,
you'd better be running.
Good afternoon,
this is rob boucher
from the millennium
real estate corporation.
Is Ms. nepoli at home, please?
Oh, good.
I just want to make sure...
Can you believe this? Really?
When that guy was sitting
at this desk,
he didn't move a single house.
I've been here longer.
I've put many more houses
on the board.
Why is he the boss?
No, seriously.
A simple question.
When that guy was sitting here,
he didn't do squat.
- Okay?
- Bob.
My name is James Harvey,
I'm calling
from millennium realty...
How are you doing today,
Mr. Dixon?
Fine, Bob, how are you?
You're doing a great job.
Thank you.
- Really great.
- You, too.
Thank you.
Am I gonna get my own room?
We have a reservation.
Have any cream on my face?
No, you're good.
- Can you hold this?
- Sure.
Come on!
It's beautiful.
What are you doing in there?
Stop spending time
in front of the mirror.
Oh, I've tried
for a long, long time
tried to find a guy
that I could call mine
a good man, my baby, my baby
is so very hard to find
need someone to love
I relax
and act like the happy girl
I've never seen anything
like this.
You don't vacation much.
I don't do much of anything.
It's one of those things
that feels better than it looks.
I think I know what you mean.
Need someone to love
I'm here with my wife and son.
I'm here with my husband.
I should probably
go check on them upstairs.
But I've waited,
yes, I've waited
so very, very, very
alone inside me
sometimes I wonder
Would you like to dance with me?
Come our way
one day I will know
if my wish will come true
I'm gonna find
a good man to love
just like you
I hope it's real,
so, yes, I do
but until I do
need someone to love
oh, I know, I know,
i know, girl
need someone to love
I'll drop you guys off at home
and take the car
and go grocery shopping.
Oh, man, I do not feel
like going back to work.
I wish we could just stay there
for the rest of our lives.
It would be nice, wouldn't it?
Can I ask you something?
Did Jonah ever
get in fights before?
What do you mean before?
You know, this year.
He's 13.
They get into fights
all the time.
I mean, serious fights.
Black eyes and stuff.
You never told me.
Never that bad. No.
It is 8:04 A.M.
Excuse me.
Hello, my name is James Harvey,
and I'm calling from...
Good afternoon,
this is Robert boucher.
Mr. abbott, I'm calling
from millennium realty...
I was just wondering if, uh...
You might have seen
a mailer from us.
Maybe we have to start
with the market as a whole.
Just give me a second.
Mr. umberto,
it's James Harvey,
millennium realty.
Yes, I wanted to call
and let you know
that in the next few months
about a dozen houses
in your neighborhood
are gonna be foreclosed.
And once the bank forecloses
those houses,
the overall property value
for the block goes down.
Pretty soon what you had, what
you have now, isn't worth much.
Split it between these.
So, I'm calling you
today with an offer.
It's not going to knock you
off your feet, but it's fair.
It's fair, and it will help you
find another place to live.
So, let's start by doing this,
can you write a number down?
I'm gonna give you
my personal number.
This is not a company extension.
I'm not calling you from India.
You can call me anytime,
I'll be with you
through this process.
I'm your point man,
I'm your guy.
Now, the only question
that remains, Mr. umberto, is...
Do you have a pen?
Thank you.
Thank you.
So... I went on a
date last night.
- With who?
- Well... How'd you meet?
You didn't tell us.
She was great, you know?
She's... Smart.
Attentive, thoughtful.
But on the heavy side.
That's great, Bob.
Bit on the heavy side?
You think it's serious?
What's that mean?
I don't know.
Why not?
We had, uh, a little argument.
You know, she said she'd rather
be deaf than blind.
Oh, Bob, can't you sit
with a woman for five minutes
without bringing that one up?
Oh, damn, do you ask her that?
It's really about communicating,
you know?
I mean, think about...
Think about music.
The meal is important. Oh, boy.
Hey. Somebody gotta represent.
Now that you deserted us.
Who deserted who?
Bob, I didn't
desert you. I'm still there.
Hmm, sure are.
Hear about your husband's
new-found work ethic?
He's the star of the office.
How many deals
did you make, dad?
- Jonah!
- Not enough.
Come on, James.
Let's get
a little competition goin'.
Yeah, come on, dad. How many?
- Dad?
- Come on.
- Guys, please dig into the pie.
- You and me.
It's going to get cold.
About three.
Oh, come on, dad.
You have to be specific.
How many?
Where did you put the...?
Oh, never mind, I found it.
- How many?
- Jonah, stop it.
Come on, I wanna know.
How many?
How many deals you make?
Can we not talk
about work at the dinner table?
Thank you!
Oh, who wants coffee or tea?
Come eat your pie.
Come here.
- What?
- Come here.
I want to show you something.
Come here. Come here.
You see it?
I got the promotion.
I didn't want to say anything in
front of him, he'll know Monday.
- That's great.
- You like it?
What's the matter?
You didn't tell me!
Oh, I wanted it
to be a surprise.
Aren't you happy?
Yeah! Of course.
It's almost double.
Do they know you can't drive?
I'm gonna learn.
I'm just worried
you'll hurt yourself.
No, we don't know anything.
What if you...
Lose it while you're driving?
What do you want me to do?
You want me to sit and wait?
You should be happy.
I am happy.
Don't worry so much.
I'm just scared, you know?
You don't wanna lose control.
That's not true.
Why would you say that?
Everything okay in here?
Yeah. Bob, let me, uh,
let me drive you home.
Where do you get all this from?
Where are we going?
I didn't do anything!
Mr. Harvey...
You can't blame Jonah every time
he and Billy forley
get in a fight,
i will not stand for it.
You will not punish my son
I have three other students
who say your son started it.
Those are all Billy's friends.
Mr. Harvey,
don't barge into my office
and tell me
how to run my school.
I won't tell you how to run it,
but you don't punish my son
when he isn't responsible
for the problem.
That was awesome.
Come on, let's get out of here.
I have fifth period.
Ah, come on.
- Really?
- Yeah, let's go.
Oh, now he's gone.
Move really slow.
Hey, there's one.
Is that one?
Oh, yeah.
He's curled
like half underneath the rock.
Where'd he go?
Let's look up under here.
See any?
But there's a fish, though.
There. There he is.
Oh, yeah.
Maybe more up here?
Maybe over there.
You know, you don't
have to go back there
if you don't want to.
We can send you someplace else.
You know, private school.
We can't afford it.
You let me worry about that.
Who wants to, anyway?
You think there's no
Billy forleys at woodland?
At least the bullies
there will be better dressed.
It's okay, dad.
I'm gonna tough it out.
Oh, yeah?
Oh, you wanna tough it out,
do ya?
Wanna tough it out?
You wanna tough it out?
Oh, yeah!
25 funded at closing,
for the development
of a 50-home residential
neighborhood project
in Montgomery county.
The first mortgage loan
represents an underwritten,
loan to net sellout
of approximately 68 percent.
And has been underwritten
to generate an irr
of approximately...
Five percent.
We're not pushing hard enough.
We can increase marketing spend.
We flyer every block.
We go door to door.
We... cold call.
We have a local office
for each community.
But we've already been
doing all of that.
We can do more.
The problem isn't
getting to people.
People know we're out there.
But we know what the problem is.
The problem is trust.
People think we're a cold-
blooded real estate company.
That's a good thing, right?
I'm just telling you
what I've been hearing
for the past seven years...
Working the phones.
We're no more cold-blooded
than Franklin and Howard
or any of the others.
That's right,
and they're all struggling, too.
We need to reposition our brand.
Become the good guys.
I thought we are the good guys.
Oh, what are you suggesting?
You want to start a charity?
Would that be so bad?
Listen, I hate having to...
Oh, don't worry.
I'll take care of it.
What if they say no?
Are you really asking me that?
so I'll tell him to expect you.
Yeah, you do that.
And what does
the golden boy want?
Oh, I don't lunch.
Lunch with me?
Why should I?
I wanna talk about this.
This what?
This challenge.
You wanna share ideas?
I do.
I... could use your help.
And why should I help you?
I think you could use
my perspective.
Golden boy, you just flipped
a couple of houses,
got yourself promoted.
Don't let it go to your head.
I don't see
why we had to come here.
I wanted to take you out.
What's wrong with dancing?
Sure, we'll go dancing.
Let me get the check.
No, no, no. It's fine.
What's wrong?
I heard what you did
at Jonah's school.
The kid needed a break.
I called them and told them
to give him detention.
You what?
He can't cut class and...
I gave him my permission.
You don't get to do that!
Why not?
Because you don't
get to make the decision
for both of us!
Because you never used
to tell me
when he got in trouble
at school.
I didn't want to bother you
with that.
Well, now I know.
What's that supposed to mean?
Now I know.
I don't like this.
Let's go dancing.
- I don't want to.
- No, let's go.
Come on, Sam.
- James...
- We'll start over.
Go ahead.
Everyone knows
the market is bad.
The woman cleaning your house
knows the market is bad.
People tell themselves,
"I'd have to be an idiot
to sell now."
So, we establish
a separate consulting entity.
We hold meetings in schools,
community centers, churches.
We help people manage debt.
And we offer our own solution.
People will show up
just because it's church.
Evening classes
in family finance.
They'll come in droves.
What we offer:
A comprehensive plan
for solving debt.
making a family budget,
paying off small debts first.
One of the solutions
we'll be selling.
What do you think?
I think he's got a point.
So close to one today.
I don't know.
You know, that split...
That split-second
where they're not sure
if they're gonna sign
on the dotted line or not.
I blew it.
I don't know.
I think my mind wandered
a little bit.
How do you close?
- How do you close?
- Yeah.
You look the guy
right in the eye.
And you say,
"are you willing to do this?"
Hey, dad.
What are you doin' up?
Mom said you went to a party
and didn't take her.
Go to bed.
How was it?
Have fun?
You told Jonah
i didn't want you to come
but I... I did ask you.
Doesn't matter.
Can I ask you something?
That first time we met.
At the dance
at the community center.
What about it?
Why me? Why did you...?
Why did you choose me?
You looked unhappy.
I thought I could help.
Well, usually,
when you ask someone to dance,
it's because you're
attracted to them.
Well, you looked miserable
out there.
We're the sorry-looking
group of blind people...
In the sorry-looking
community center.
You pitied me.
No, I didn't.
You pitied me at the party
for the blind.
You pitied me,
and you took me on,
like one of those kids
at your school.
Stop it.
Pitiful sight.
I'll go dancing tomorrow
because I promised.
But I'm never going there again.
Ooh, baby
ooh, baby
when we're
out in the moonlight
looking up on stars above
feels so good
when I'm near you
holding hands
and making love
ooh, ooh, baby
yes, oh, baby
yes, oh, baby
yes, oh, baby
Sandy beach
and was making love
as the tide moves in on us
feels so good
walking side by side
want to be with you all
my life
ooh, ooh, baby
yes, oh, baby
yes, oh, baby
yes, oh, baby
ooh, baby
dreams of you all the time
feels so good
when we're together, love
just can't wait
until tomorrow night
If you leave,
you can't come back.
Hey, baby, let's shake it
You know that, right?
Ooh, ooh, baby
Where are you taking me?
Come on,
I'll show you the water.
Yeah, of course,
this is where you live.
I used to smell
your perfume in the elevator.
Do you know that?
Every morning.
People are looking
for someone to tell them
how to get out of debt.
They're starving for this stuff.
Yeah, but why here?
Where else do people go
in hard times?
We... we really
just want to help.
Bob will be leading
these meetings.
Now, primarily we want you
to see us as a source
of information.
And we want you
to ask us any question at all.
Nothing is off bounds.
Absolutely nothing.
Um, we also want you to know
that we can refer you to...
Uh, financial services.
Just purely as a last resort,
in case you want to have, uh,
your house reevaluated.
I think that, um...
I'm pretty sure there's
a number on this pamphlet.
Now, I'd like to introduce
a dear friend and partner
in new day alliance,
James Harvey.
Good job, Bob.
Gee, thanks.
You want to step here.
You good?
Thank you, Bob!
And thank you all
for being here.
A man...
Prays to god...
For 50 years.
The same prayer, every night.
Please let me win the lottery.
Every night, year after year,
after year, after year.
"Please... god...
Let me win the lottery."
And finally an angel
goes to god.
And he says, "god..."
This man has been
praying so long."
"Why don't you let him win"?
And you know what god says?
God says,
"I'd love to help him out."
"Love to help him out."
"But he's never bought
a lottery ticket!"
Now, I look into this crowd,
and I see different faces.
I see old men and women.
I see young couples.
Single mothers.
Young men.
Whole families.
Why are you all here?
Why are you all here?
It's because of your addiction.
Your addiction to debt.
To the economy of debt.
To never picking up
when that unlisted number
flashes on your phone.
To waking up in the morning
and dodging phone calls.
And red letters.
And finally,
to sitting at home in the dark
so you can't get served.
So we go, and we pray.
And we cry.
And we feel sorry for ourselves.
And why? Why do we do that?
It's because we don't
have the guts to take action.
To get out of debt.
To sell that car.
To move to a smaller house.
To get that ticket.
We got debt
because we can't get jobs.
So we come up with excuses.
"I can't get a job."
"I make too little,
the money is too low."
"I can't move ahead."
And... and maybe that's right.
Maybe you're stuck.
Maybe the money is low.
I mean, we all have
these problems, right?
We all have these problems.
Then, why do we feel it right
to live beyond our means?
Why should we live
beyond our earnings?
What sense does it make
when we're stuck,
15 years down the line,
shackled with debt?
Debt hanging down our throats.
Does the bank care
about your hard life?
- No.
- No.
Do they care
about your low income?
- No.
- No, they don't!
No, they don't!
So are you
enjoying the promotion?
I guess we can help
these people out, you know?
You know, if this keeps up,
I can definitely get you
another raise.
Maybe your own office?
How's the new apartment?
Uh, it's... it's great.
Hey, you should
come by sometime.
What's it like?
With her.
What's it like with her?
Bob, I don't know if I want to...
Come on.
What does she do?
She do anything special for ya?
Come on. Tell... tell...
Tell me something.
She's good.
It's good.
Better be.
It better be good.
I've been, uh, over to see Sam.
Oh, yeah? How come?
Um... um, I'm her friend, too.
Right? I mean, she...
She had it hard enough.
Oh, I know.
I know.
James, I'm not judging.
I'm not judging.
Oh, no, of course not.
Like you wouldn't have
done the same thing
if you had the chance.
What chance?
Oh, please. I need...
I need to spell it out?
Yes, spell it out.
Spell it out in braille for me.
The chance to get what you want.
To finally go somewhere
after years of misery.
I didn't realize
that things were so bad.
When you were like me.
Oh, I didn't mean that.
A lot of people have it
a lot worse, you know?
Bob, you were the one
who would always complain.
"Hmm, this guy got promoted,
why not me?"
"I've... I've been here forever."
"I'm better at this
than everybody else."
I don't know if i
would've been planning
to leave my family, though.
That might not have been
part of my plan,
leaving the family.
Listen, that story
you told me...
The ticket.
I got a chance.
I reached out, and I got it.
You missed the point
of the story.
Oh, am I?
Yeah, yeah,
you never got a ticket.
You had one handed to you.
You had a ticket handed to you.
So, you're asking, "why not me"?
Maybe I'm asking,
"what did you do to deserve it?"
You're jealous.
You are jealous.
And you're being an asshole.
I'm human.
That's what it is. Okay.
Got it.
In case you didn't hear that,
i just paid.
How have you been feeling?
Your performance
doesn't go unnoticed.
The effort you're putting in.
The results.
Feels good to contribute.
I know what you want to hear.
That we're going
to expand the program,
someone will have to run it,
get a substantial promotion,
find the right staff.
You'd be my first choice.
Thank you.
And this is probably
the first order of business.
I found this on my windshield
this morning.
Not something we wanna
take lightly. Not now.
I'll take care of it.
As quickly as you can?
We need to talk.
It's me.
I know.
Why are you doing this?
- Doin' what?
- Oh, come on, Bob!
Why are you doing this
to me, huh?
Not really about you, James.
It's all those people
we're stepping on.
Oh, don't pretend this is
about the people.
You were making phone calls
screwing people over
well before any of this!
Only difference is
you sucked at it!
No, this is about you and me
and your inability
to cope with where I'm going!
That's right.
It's James against the world.
Have you always felt singled out
like this?
You are so jealous!
You think I don't know
how you feel about Sam? Huh?
You should go to church
more often,
outside of office hours, James.
If I find one more
of these things
around the neighborhood,
you will lose your job!
Try and find a new job
in this economy, Bob.
As a former blind man,
i can tell you it's not easy.
"But he's never bought
a lottery ticket."
Now, I look into this crowd,
and I see different faces.
I see old men and women.
I see young couples.
Single mothers.
I see young men. Whole families!
But why are you all here?
Why are you all here?
It's because of your addiction.
Your addiction to debt.
To the economy of debt.
To never picking up
when that unlisted number
flashes on your phone.
To waking up in the morning
and dodging phone calls.
And red letters.
I mean, we all have
these problems, right?
Then, why do we feel it right
to live beyond our means?
Why should we live
beyond our earnings?
What sense does it make
when we're stuck,
15 years down the line,
shackled with debt?
Debt hanging down our throats.
Does the bank care
about your hard life?
All: No.
Do... do they care
about your low income?
All: No.
They don't.
Excuse me!
Excuse me, sir.
How soon can I get the money,
once I sell the house?
Oh, um.
Well, you'll
get a check right away.
Well, you can cash that check.
Maybe you should think about it,
you know? It's a big decision.
I... I realize that, I just...
Is there, um, any way to move
to the front of the line
with this?
Take my card, and, um...
I want you to think about it...
You promise?
And if you're still sure, uh...
Give me a call.
Thank you so much.
How's mom?
She's fine.
She's... Going crazy
with the exercising.
She's like
a complete gym freak now.
Yeah, she's always liked
getting into new stuff.
Hey, dad.
I think it's good, 'cause...
Exercise creates endorphins.
I think that's
really good for her.
She goes dancing, too.
Oh yeah?
At the svi?
Oh, who with?
What's wrong?
Oh, nothing.
I'm losing my novelty?
It's not that.
It's always that.
I think Jonah's
got a girlfriend now.
And he says he doesn't
want to stay here.
It's gonna take time.
I know.
My dad left when I was nine.
You get used to it.
I think my parents
stayed together
just 'cause I was going blind.
I used to hear my dad
praying every night
for my vision
not to get any worse.
Is... is he still alive?
It was so important to him.
You know, I used to...
Lie about it.
I used to tell him I could still
see things when I couldn't.
He took it way harder
than I ever did.
She never let me be
who I wanted.
Nobody's judging you.
Maybe god is.
Mmm. God has
better things to do.
You don't believe in god?
Oh, when... things are bad.
When I need to believe,
i believe.
That's not what belief is.
Well, then, I don't believe.
What are you doing here?
Just gonna give you the check.
You could've just mailed it.
You're running now?
- Yeah.
- You look good.
Gotta stay in shape
for all the handsome
new men in my life.
Just came to see
how you were doing.
Thanks for coming by.
You know, I'm
a little worried about, uh...
About Jonah.
I don't know, he seems...
He seems different.
Any trouble?
- Troubles?
- Yeah?
It's called, you know,
going through a skater phase.
It's a part of growing up.
The skater phase,
i guess, I never...
Never saw that.
Yeah, that and the whole thing
with his father moving out.
House looks nice.
I'm gonna... get showered up.
Head inside so...
Can I come in?
What's wrong?
Hey, Jonah.
What are you doing here?
I never noticed how this house
glows at night.
You can see it
from down the street.
I... I have to get back inside.
Mom's at the dance.
Up north
That night.
And I had to go the bathroom.
Up north
where the people smile
their grimy smiles
one place
that I lug around
- Maybe later, though.
- Bob, Bob, James is here.
One place
I'm not going to do it.
there's no other town
Just give us a minute, okay?
Oh, god. Tell me it's okay.
All right.
One place
That I lug around
get over
up north
dirty streets
You know, I used to think
i came here for you.
- That's not true.
- up north
I came here for me.
Funny how everything works out
in the end, don't you think?
Me moving on
and you showing up here.
Bob's a good dancer.
Don't worry, we're just dancing.
I wouldn't
take your only friend.
Up north
You should bring her here
She might like it.
Up north
that I've missed so much
Can I have this dance?
Everything looks normal.
That reporter called again.
What does she want?
To speak to somebody in charge.
You shouldn't be
taking those calls.
You're not doing too good.
Not now. Not now.
Not now.
Not now. Please.
We're adding a $104 credit
for the oil
left in your heating.
That would be fine.
Here we are, then.
Here's the deed of sale,
all filled out.
For the townhouse
at the 207 property.
This looks right.
We just need you to sign here.
I am deeply satisfied
with my life
and everything in it.
I live for today,
and I enjoy what I do.
I do not compare myself
to others.
I'm thankful
for everything I have.
I am deeply satisfied
with my life...
And everything in it.
I live for today,
and I enjoy what I do.
I do not compare myself
to others.
When were you going to tell me?
Do you think people
won't notice?
What are you going to do?
Keep it a secret?
Pretend you can see?
I can take care of this.
I can help you.
I don't need your help.
Yes, you do.
I can fix this.
James, let me help you.
I don't need your help.
Thank you all for being here.
A man prays to god...
For 50 years.
The same prayer, every night.
"God, please let me
win the lottery."
Every single night.
Year after year.
"Please, god..."
"Let me win the lottery."
And finally an angel
goes to god,
and he says,
"god, this man has been
praying so long."
"Why don't you let him win?"
And god says,
"I'd love to help him,"
but he's never bought...
"A lottery ticket."
I look into this crowd,
and I see different faces.
I see old men and women.
I see young couples.
I see whole families..
Now, why are you all here?
Why are you all here?
I used to live like you.
I used to live like you.
I was saddled with debt.
And now...
Waste of time.
And I'm not... Anymore.
I talked to Dixon.
He can take
your responsibilities.
Ease off the load.
I'm thankful
for everything I have.
Deeply satisfied with my life
and everything in it.
I live for today,
and I enjoy what I do.
I do not compare myself
to others.
I'm thankful for what I have.
I'm deeply satisfied with
my life and everything in it.
I live for the moment.
I enjoy what I do.
I do not compare myself
to others.
Oh, god, god, god.
God... god, forgive... Oh, god!
Please, god.
I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Please, god! Please, god!
Please... please. Please, god.
I'm fucked!
Oh, god!
Please, god. Please, god.

Bob, are you there?
Bob, I know you're there.
Bob, please!
Please open up, Bob!
Bob, please.
Bob, please.
You have everything I want.
Everything I ever wanted.
And you messed it up!
What, you think she's
gonna take you back now?
You're no good.
You think she deserves you?
You know,
she still protects you?
She still understands you.
So, won't you crawl
on back to her.
Crawl on home.
Get the hell out of my house.
Get out!
My god.
I'm sorry.
Are you okay?
- James?
- I'm sorry.
Do you need me to call a doctor?
- Are you...?
- No, no.
You smell so good.
You can't do this to me.
I can't take you back.
You know that.
