Where Hope Grows (2014) Movie Script

In my head I may not know
What I feel down in my soul
With my eyes I may not see
The fire that burns
inside of me
Just stand strong
and hold on to hope
Just grab on
and don't ever let it go
When your back's
against the wall
You're not alone
You know
I have been set free
Fear has got no grip on me
You know I can see the light
A dead man coming
back to life
Just stand strong
and hold on to hope...
His love shines
over evil things
I'll be
right beside you...
Right beside you!
In this life
I'll be the knight
I'll be
right beside you...
So I was thinking maybe you'd
come down to the dealership,
sign a few balls
or something this Saturday.
Nobody wants my autograph, Milt.
You never know, man.
Come on, seriously.
Last time worked out.
Could be a win-win for both of us.
There she is.
I got this.
Don't reach for your wallet.
All right, man.
- No, don't reach for your wallet.
- Thank you.
Here you go, sunshine.
Next round's on me, I guess.
Thank you!
Ladies and gentlemen,
I think there's
somebody here tonight
who deserves just a little bit
of recognition, all right?
- Here it is.
- No.
Now, it's not because he's a
regular here at Stevie Ray's...
Is he talking about me?
...or because he was an All-American
at Stevenson High School...
True story, true story.
...or even because
he was a Detroit Tiger.
That's right!
Simply because
it's his birthday.
Give it up for Calvin Campbell.
He's a jolly good fellow
He's a jolly good fellow
- He's a jolly good fellow...-
- A cake!
- Which nobody can deny.
Dang it.
Dang it.
Hey, Katie bear.
You said you'd be home
by 9:30, Dad.
I know. I'm sorry.
Dang it, I'm sorry.
Milt and Frankie,
they wanted to celebrate
my birthday,
so they took me out
for some, dinner
and we just got a little...
- You're drunk.
- No.
Yeah, not too much that I can't drive,
if that's what you're thinking,
'cause I'm good.
Um, sweetheart, we're gonna
celebrate when I get home, okay?
This guy's drunk.
Look at this.
He's a mess!
Where do you think you're going?
- It's 11:15.
- Out with Colt.
No, no. I told you that I didn't
want you to see that boy anymore.
Well, at least somebody loves me.
You are 16 years old.
I'm 17, Dad.
What happened to us
spending my birthday together?
What happened?
I don't know.
What time did you get home?
- You making some for me?
- Yes.
I know late.
What time?
I don't know.
Colt won his sprint car heat.
We went out to celebrate.
At least I got to celebrate
something with somebody.
I like my eggs over easy.
Yeah, I want to say
something about Colt.
He's like a...
he's like a fastball
from Nolan Ryan
when he was in the
prime of his game.
- What does that even mean?
- It means he's too much for you to handle.
Dad, can't we just have a normal
conversation with breakfast?
Yeah, that's fine.
What are you gonna do today?
Mall and movie.
- I need the car.
- I'm using the car.
Don't you think it's about time
you got a real job again, Dad?
So we can afford things?
Like, say, two cars?
You know what?
I'm the dad and you're the kid.
So you don't talk to me
about getting a job
or getting a second car.
Do you understand me?
The other thing about Colt, young lady,
is that he is too old for you.
And I know what old kids want.
- I know what they're after.
- Okay.
Are you guys having...
are you having sex?
Really, Dad?
You are such
a freaking hypocrite.
I can have all the sex I want.
You were obviously
doing it in high school.
Yeah, exactly,
and I don't want you to make
the same mistakes
that I was making.
So, I'm a mistake?
That's not what I said, Katie.
- Wow, Dad.
- Katie...
- that's not what I said.
- Well, you did.
You know what?
Maybe you don't like Colt
because you're just jealous
he's an athlete on the way up
and you're... you.
My heart holds a question between
every beat... - Dexter, how are you?
Got every answer
beneath my feet
Fallin' apart,
but I never know why
Walked every road
but the one that's right
Been chasin' my tail
instead of my dream
Life's just a game,
but you play it for keeps
Ooh. Whoops.
Hey, Produce...
sorry, pal, I think I just trampled
on one of your vegetables.
A tomato is a fruit.
What'd you say?
A tomato is a fruit.
So are avocados,
cucumbers, and olives.
All fruits.
that's pretty good information.
- Thanks.
- You're pretty smart.
- You think I'm smart?
- Sure.
Do you want to see
how smart that I am?
You know what?
Maybe another day.
I'm just... I'm not really in
the mood for it today, man.
- Sorry about that.
- Okay.
Have a magnificent day.
All right.
Hey, Miss Amy, how you doing?
Hey, Produce. I'm great.
How are you doing?
- Incredible.
- Nice to see you.
Nice to see you.
Look what I'm getting.
Mr. Campbell,
you over there messing with Produce?
- Excuse me.
- Sorry.
Just having a conversation with him,
I'm sure it was compelling.
You know?
All right, see ya.
But also putting strawberries
on the top of waffles.
- Look at you.
- Okay.
- What else is fresh today?
- Tomatoes are fresh.
They look good.
Hey, Produce,
thank you for that information
over there about the fruits
and vegetables and...
You're welcome.
My mama said
- those are not good for you.
- This?
your mama sounds like a smart person, too.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
Could be good advice.
Could be good advice
if I followed it.
Hey, he's a s...
you know?
- The hugging.
- He's a hugger.
What's that about?
It's just his way
of being friendly.
I'm Calvin.
It's nice to meet you, Amy.
Nice to meet you.
Would you like to have somebody
to help you shop more?
Please help me shop.
And I found the beauty
that I couldn't see
And it's everything I want
And so much more
It was always you.
Thanks, man.
That was beautiful.
Thank you.
It still needs a lot of work,
but I appreciate it.
Look... there's no one
here, Frank.
I could really use an extra
hand cleaning up in the back.
Laura, I'm not the janitor.
I know, but...
Hey, buddy,
it was a beautiful song.
It got me.
They're lucky to have
you here, Frankie.
What's this?
She forget her broomstick?
She left that for me.
Got work to do.
I'll see you later, man.
You didn't leave me any coffee.
You know how to work
the coffeemaker, Katie.
No, you drank it all, Dad.
There's none in the bag.
That's what I'm saying.
Well, I will...
I will run to the store
and get some more when I'm
finished with my paper.
Hey, Dad?
How about we go see a
movie or something later?
I'd love to, Katie,
but I think I have to meet
Milt and Frank later.
Sorry, kiddo.
Hi, Mr. Campbell.
How you doing this afternoon?
I'm fine.
How are you?
I'm doing good.
Even when I'm doing bad,
I'm doing good.
Sounds pretty deep.
Have a magnificent day.
You know what?
I wasn't being honest
with you, Produce.
I'm not fine.
Well, are you sick?
- I don't think so.
- Maybe you just need to smile.
"A cheerful heart
is good medicine."
Where'd you get that?
A bumper sticker?
You told me that I was smart.
- Remember?
- Yeah.
You wanna see how smart I am?
Well, I'll tell you what.
Maybe not today,
because I gotta...
I gotta...
- Pick up that melon.
- All right.
They label all of these
fruits and vegetables
with some numbers on them.
But I know the number on
the top of that melon.
- Okay, go.
- 4329.
Yeah, 4329.
That's correct.
That's impressive, Produce.
Good job.
Pear. Anjou.
Yep. Correct.
That's the easy one.
Everybody likes bananas.
Gala apple. 4135.
Orange. 9669.
Tangerine. 3144.
Granny Smith apple.
There we go.
I'm really impressed.
I mean, you're kinda like
"Rain Man" or something.
Like Superman or Batman!
You're proud of me
'cause I'm smart.
- I'm sorry, Mr. Campbell.
- No, that's all right.
He didn't realize
he was bugging you.
What did I tell you
about hugging the customers?
Now you get back
to work, young man.
You have a nice day,
Mr. Campbell.
- You, too, Dexter.
- I'm sorry about the hug.
Nah, like I said.
Hey, Produce.
I'm impressed.
- Frank?
- Hi, Susan.
Is Milt here?
Is everything okay?
Yeah, yeah, it's good.
I just need to talk to him.
Yeah, come in.
- You doing all right?
- Yeah, nice to see you.
- You, too.
- Milt.
- Hey, buddy, what's up?
- What's up, man?
- What's up?
- You doing all right?
What's going on?
Okay, um...
there's no easy way
to ask you this, so...
- Okay.
- I need to borrow some money for a hotel room.
It's not long.
I'll pay you back.
- What happened?
- I got evicted.
Hadn't paid in a while,
so kinda had it comin'.
Well, you're not getting
in any hotel, all right?
You stay here, all right?
We got plenty of room.
- You're like family.
- Man, I...
No, no, no, no. Stay here.
We got plenty of room.
So I got some
towels if you want to take a shower
and help yourself
to anything in the kitchen.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
No. Colt, hang on.
What's going on?
Just slow down.
The hell are you doing?
I'm cold.
Come on, take that jacket off,
get back in bed.
You know how many girls
wanna get with me right now?
But here I am.
I'm trying to be faithful to you.
I just want it to be special
for my first time.
Wait, you... so you're...
you're a virgin?
- Yeah.
- But you said that you've been...
I know.
I... I lied.
I just wanted you
to like me, so I said it.
This is awesome, you know that?
Listen, I got some wine
out in my Jeep, okay?
It's in a box,
so we don't need an opener or anything.
- That's special, right?
- You don't get it.
No, you don't get it, Katie.
You can't just tease
a guy like this.
I said just lay back down.
- Katie?
Hey, Katie?
Hey, Katie bear, I just...
I just wanted
to come say good night.
Wha... hey.
What are you doing with your
jacket on in your bed?
Hey, what's wrong?
Is there something
I can do to help?
Please get out.
Hey, Mr. Campbell.
How you doing?
Where's the shopping cart?
I don't know.
I'm not here to shop.
I guess I just...
I guess I just came to talk.
To me?
Yeah, to you.
I guess I could use
some of that magical happiness
that you always seem to have.
- So, what's your secret?
- It's no secret, Mr. Campbell.
Well, you're doing
something right.
You're doing a heck of a
lot better than I'm doing.
Do you think that I'm smart
enough to do anything?
Anything in the whole
wide world?
- Well, come on.
- Where are we going?
All right.
where are we going, buddy?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
Look it.
I'm not authorized personnel.
I can't go back there.
Please, Mr. Campbell?
Come... please?
- Come on.
- All right.
- Come on.
- What are we doing?
What? What is this?
I'm not smart enough to be
the Employee of the Month.
Yeah, you are.
- Really?
- Let me ask you a question.
Do you think that Colt
can name every fruit number
on every piece of fruit
in the store?
But I can name
all the vegetables, too.
Yeah, exactly.
That's my point.
He can't do that.
Hey, Produce.
well, sometimes life
is not fair.
You know?
And sometimes we don't
get what we want.
What do you do for work?
I've done...
I don't know,
I've done a few things
here and there.
I used to play baseball.
Will you show me how?
Well, you know,
I haven't... whoa,
I haven't played baseball
in a long, long time, Produce.
I've always wanted
to play baseball.
You really want to learn
how to play?
This is what I want you to do.
I want you to stand
over this box.
That's the home plate.
And then you're just going
to swing this broomstick
like it's a baseball bat.
Hey, Produce?
Not on the box.
Over the box.
There you go.
Just stand like that, okay?
All right, Produce,
I just want you to keep
your eye on the ball.
- It's an orange.
- That's very perceptive.
Just swing when it comes
near you, all right?
All righty then.
I'm going to hit a home run!
not if I strike you out first, kid.
You ready?
Here comes the heater.
- It's all right.
- Strike one.
It's all right.
Here's what I want you to do.
I want you to keep
your shoulders in, okay?
Keep your eye on the orange.
And I always want you to look
for the rotation of the pitch
at its highest point, okay?
That's when it's leaving my...
never mind, just...
- just swing away and have fun.
- Okay.
Yeah, Produce!
Highest point, all right?
All right.
There we go.
There it is!
There it is.
Here comes a tomato.
Keep your eye on the ball.
- Ooh.
- All right, here we go.
There it is!
All right, there we go.
- No!
- Grapefruit.
Where the heck have you been?
Get a new apron
and get back to work!
Hey, Produce,
how's it going, man?
- Incredible, man.
- That's great. That's great.
Listen, if you tell anyone
what you just saw,
there's gonna be
some problems for you.
But you took the bottle.
- It's not yours.
- I know.
The thing is,
I'd pay for it if I was 21,
but I'm not, so I can't.
- Understand?
- Understand.
- All right.
- Hey, speed demon.
- Mr. Jenkins, how are you, sir?
- Great, great.
Hey, I caught your race
last Saturday night.
- Thank you.
- So when are they gonna go ahead
and just let you race
in the 500?
Thank you, sir.
You're too kind.
Well, keep up
the good work, son.
You're making us all
proud around here.
Thank you, thank you.
Hey, not a word,
you understand me?
- Yeah.
- All right, great.
- Hey, Produce.
- Hey, what are you doing out here?
I was wondering if you wanted
to go somewhere with me.
Where do we want to go?
Come on.
It'll be a surprise.
Don't need to worry 'bout me
I've got everything I need
To be free from
all ya other ballers
And when I bust out
this groove
You'll see the room
start to move
So let me
hear you holler...
- Dang it!
- It's all right.
You just need to concentrate.
You need to keep
your eye on the ball.
And I want you to put
your elbows in.
Okay, transfer your weight back.
The swing is all in your wrist.
- Let's see.
I'm never gonna hit a baseball!
You're gonna hit a
baseball and be positive!
If you keep telling yourself that you're
never gonna hit a baseball, guess what.
- I won't hit it.
- That's right, exactly.
Baseball is 75% mental.
Trust me.
I remember you hitting
that two-run double
off of Clemens
back in the 2000 ALCS?
Do I know you?
I was out of the league by 2000.
Right, it was...
Hey, Produce,
try to swing level.
Do you ever think about
getting back into the game?
Well, that's a shame because I'm the
assistant GM of the Louisville Bats.
We're looking to fill our manager's
position and I'd like it to be a local boy.
You know what?
I got a kid at home that I can't handle.
I don't think I want to be
in charge of 30 more.
Look, you were one of the smartest
players I had ever seen back in...
Hey, don't you get it, Steve?
I wasn't as good as you or
everyone like you thought I was.
I couldn't hack it when it counted
and I don't want to relive that.
So thank you, but no, thank you.
I just wanted to offer you the
opportunity if you wanted it.
It's a good-paying gig.
But if you got
other stuff going on...
Not really.
Look, why don't you stop by the
stadium Sunday evening 6:00 PM.
Sunday at 6:00?
The GM, he'd be excited to meet
you and if you don't like it...
- Okay.
- ...you can always walk away.
Yeah, I'll...
I'll be there.
I'll count on it.
Hey, you ready?
I had a good day today.
I took this...
this kid who...
I don't know, he's... he's,
like, slow or whatever.
- You know?
- Slow or whatever? Like slow like what?
Like can't win a race?
Or slow like retarded?
Yeah, no, he's got
Down Syndrome.
I don't know.
It was a good day.
He's a happy kid.
He's a good, happy kid.
- Yeah, great.
- That's good, man.
You know what would
make me happy?
If you buy...
How about you buy
a round of beer?
That'd make me happy.
How about that?
Colt. Colt!
- What are you doing?
- Stay out of this, Katie.
- You need my help, bro?
- No, man, I think I got it.
Hey, where do you think
you're going?
What are you doing, Colt?
Stay out of this, Katie.
It's got nothing to do with you.
Listen, man, I told you
to keep your mouth shut.
I got fired today 'cause of you.
- You did something bad.
- What?
What exactly did I do to you?
I did absolutely nothing to you.
I came to give
Mr. Campbell a melon.
This melon?
You came to give
Mr. Campbell this melon?
Don't break Mr. Campbell's melon!
Leave him alone, Colt!
Can't you see he's different?!
All right, man, you know what?
Take your melon.
Come on, guys,
let's get out of here.
What are you doing here?
Where's Katie?
She left.
I brought you a melon.
I see that.
Um... that was
nice of you.
Does your mama know
where you are?
You don't like my melon?
That's not it at all, Produce.
- Thank you for the melon.
- You're welcome.
So... why are you
all dirty?
Did you fall off your bike?
- Yes.
- Are you hurt?
- No.
- You okay?
- Yeah.
- Okay.
do you want a ride home?
- You smell funny.
- Yeah, it's...
that's what the French
call eau de Bourbon.
Not funny?
Well, I'm gonna go, to sleep
'cause it's real, real late
and, um, I'll see ya
tomorrow or whenever.
- Good-bye.
- Hey, Produce?
Thank you for my melon.
You're welcome.
And away he goes.
He... Produ...
Produce, you forgot your...
Hey, Katie bear?
which tie do you think I should wear?
This one or this one?
- Neither.
- No?
No, you're not much
of a tie guy.
Yeah, I guess you're right.
Why are you so dressed up?
I got that meeting tonight.
The owners of the Bats,
you remember?
- Yeah, that's right.
- Yeah.
- That's awesome, Dad.
- Thanks.
So just call me after and we
can grab dinner to celebrate.
Yeah, okay.
- I'd like that.
- Me, too.
- Well, all right, then, it's a date.
- Okay.
All right.
Mr. Campbell!
You should tell your
mentally challenged friend
not to come around here anymore.
Colt says he's a troublemaker.
He's not a troublemaker.
Colt on the other hand...
Can you open the door for him, please?
Dad, Colt is gonna
be here any minute.
Yeah, I don't care about Colt.
Okay, well, just make it quick.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Is that for me?
- Yes, it is.
- Thanks.
- You're welcome.
I got them from
the flowers department
and they've got
plants there, too.
I'm gonna go put them in water.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Yeah, he's a real troublemaker.
- Hey, big guy.
- Hey, Mr. Campbell.
- How you doing?
- Incredible.
- That's good.
- I left my book here last night.
- And I really need it.
- Yes, you did.
It's exactly where you left it.
- Here you go, big guy.
- Thank you.
Hey, you look sharp.
Where you going?
I'm going to church.
It practically starts
in 17 minutes.
- Practically?
- Look at my watch.
My mama told me
it has all the whistles
and all the bells.
Yeah, well, I think your mama's right.
It looks like it does.
- It's a beautiful timepiece, Produce.
- Thank you.
Do you want to come
to church with me?
It's been a long time since
someone got me flowers.
- So, thank you.
- You're welcome.
Hey, Produce,
let me ask you a question.
What do you think of that boy?
Well, I think he's arrogant
and I would love
to give him a karate chop.
Me, too, boy.
Me, too.
All right, have a good Sunday.
Well, I don't want to be late.
If I ride my bike, I'll be late.
Can you please give me a ride?
- Please?
- But I've got to go play golf with my friend.
And then afterwards
I got a real big meeting.
- So...
- I know... I know that.
I do understand that,
but I need a ride, please.
Give me a ride, please.
All right, what time...
how... how...
all right, just...
Now I'm gonna drop you off,
but I'm not going inside.
Your daughter
is extremely sweet.
I just wish she came
with an instruction manual.
Why would she come
with an instruction manual?
- Man.
- What's the matter, Mr. Campbell?
I had some drinks this morning.
Damn it!
Do you have any...
Hey, Mr. Officer.
- Hi, Calvin.
- Hey, Mitch, how you doing?
Good, good.
Wha... what's going
on here?
I'm just...
I'm just teaching
the boy how to drive.
You know?
And he's doing pretty great.
He's just... he's going
a little fast.
He doesn't know any better.
Yeah, right,
I... right.
Encouragement helps.
All right, you're... you're
doing a great job here, son.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Just slow it down.
Speed kills, remember that.
Okay. Speed kills.
I'll remember that.
Speed kills.
All right.
- You boys have a nice day.
- All right.
- Thanks.
- Be careful.
Thank you, Officer.
Good job.
Good, good.
I think you better drive.
you're about to drive a car.
Real slow.
Keep your eyes on the road.
I've never driven a car before.
- I only have a bicycle.
- Well, you're doing good.
This is incredible!
so I'm gonna be a little late.
Yeah, something came up.
I gotta take somebody to church
and it's taking a little
longer than I thought.
Yeah, I'll see ya.
All right, all right.
You can't get past me.
You can't get past me.
You can't get...
All right, all the way.
I got him.
- Kick it. Do it.
You're coming inside,
Mr. Campbell?
Next time.
- Promise?
- I can't promise.
Hey, is this
your secret, Produce?
It's no secret,
Mr. Campbell.
Well, good luck at your
baseball meeting tonight.
- Thanks, bud.
- You're welcome.
- Have fun at church.
- Thanks.
All right, so who is she?
This friend you've been
spending all this time with.
The market, church.
Who is she and can I
please see a picture?
t's not a lady.
I've been hanging out
with that kid, Produce.
- The retarded kid?
- Hey, easy.
It's called Down Syndrome.
I'll tell you something,
you spend a second with this kid
and you realize he's
just like you and me.
You're a genius.
What's guaranteed
to make people spend money?
The mentally handicapped... challenged,
whatever you call it.
That's what I need for my
new dealership commercial.
Like you're gonna give money
to the Special Olympics or something
every time you sell a car?
- What are you talking about?
- No, you tool bag.
I want him to star in my commercial.
It's perfect.
Come on, Milt.
Okay, maybe not him, maybe one of
his special buddies will do it.
- Hey, conversation's over.
- Cal.
Come on, man, sales are down.
Do your old buddy Milt
a solid and call the kid.
He won't know the difference.
Maybe he'll do it for free.
You know, he's retarded.
I said it's Down Syndrome.
Okay, what are you...
you feeling sorry for him?
No, Milt, I feel sorry for you.
B.S., man,
you feel sorry for yourself.
You've been feeling sorry for yourself
since Detroit kicked you off the team.
- What'd you just say to me?
- You heard every word I said.
I'm not gonna sit here
and debate some loser
who can't get over the fact that he
was an embarrassment in the majors.
What, are you gonna freeze?
Is your whole life
just gonna freeze?
Just like you did at home plate?
Mr. Campbell!
Where are you?
What are you doing up there?!
you scared me.
Come on.
Hey, watch your step, Produce.
There's all sorts of...
There's just stuff.
Did you drink that whole bottle?
Not yet.
Now I did.
Are you sure that you are okay,
Mr. Campbell?
I'm okay.
Now that you're here, I'm great.
I got my drinking buddy.
Maybe we can go
to the batting cages
and be baseball buddies,
not drinking buddies?
You wanna be my baseball buddy?
- Yeah, I do.
- Okay.
First lesson...
you make it to the majors...
'cause you will...
and you're standing
at the home plate
and there's 40,000 people...
cheering for you,
expecting anything...
don't forget to swing the bat.
I know that,
Mr. Campbell.
You knew that.
You know everything?
You're a smart guy.
Okay, answer me this...
who hit the ball
400 feet on to the roof
of Stevenson High School
when he was a junior?
Was it you,
Mr. Campbell?
Well, it wasn't you, was it?
- No, it wasn't me.
- No, it wasn't you.
Yeah, it was me.
It was me.
I was supposed to be great.
Well, to me,
I think you're great.
Well, of course you do!
Of course you do.
You think melons are great.
- I don't like it when you drink.
- You know what?
I don't like it when you drink
and I don't want to be
your drinking buddy
and I don't want to be your baseball buddy.
Do you understand me?
I don't want to be your buddy anymore.
I'm sorry.
I have a meeting I gotta go to
at 6:00 tonight.
It's, like,
a really big meeting...
with really big...
big, important people.
Toss 'em up.
I don't think that
you should drive.
God, toss up the keys, Produce.
I'll call Miss Katie
to pick you up.
- Produce...
- I'll call Miss Katie to pick you up.
I'm gonna come
down there, Produce.
- No!
- Co... come here! Come here!
Man, Produce.
Produce. Hey!
If I'm late...
I'm walking and if I'm late,
it's your fault.
It's your fault!
It's Calvin Campbell.
I'm here for my interview!
I'm late!
Come on!
Open the door!
Hey. Hey!
Come on!
Come on!
You were supposed to call me
right after the meeting, Dad.
Katie, it's Officer Minniear.
- Is everything okay?
- Everything's fine.
- It's, just...
- What happened?
We found him passed out in the visitors'
dugout at South,
so I need you to come
down here and pick him up.
Here, drink this.
Cal, come on.
Drink this.
- Thanks, Mitch.
- How you feeling?
I don't feel good.
No, don't touch me, Calvin!
I'm sorry.
This is the single most
embarrassing moment of my life.
Do you have any idea
what it's like
picking up the man who
calls himself your father
at the police station
drunk as hell?
- I'm sorry.
- No, you're not.
You're not sorry.
You're just
a pathetic little man.
You're a pathetic little man who
lives a pathetic little life.
- Don't say that.
- Because it's not true?
Because you know it is.
I'm sorry.
This isn't how I wanted things to turn out,
I just want to make sure you
know that I've given up on you.
Katie, come on.
Your old man's had a rough night.
Don't say that to me,
Katie, 'cause you're my little girl.
- I'm sorry.
- Get in the car.
Mitch, Mitch...
I'm sorry.
It's okay.
You can...
you can yell at me,
you can scream if you want to.
I deserve it.
Why would I do that?
I already told you
I've given up on you.
What can I do
to make this better?
You tell me what to do, Katie.
What can I do?
Hi, Mr. Campbell.
Hey, kid.
Did you make it to your meeting?
No, I didn't.
Yeah, it's probably better
that you did not go.
You... you're
probably right.
So, are you still mad at me
for taking your keys?
So, are you here
to shop for groceries?
Come here.
I'm sorry.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change,
the courage to change
the things I can,
and the wisdom
to know the difference.
Come on in.
Hi, I'm Amy,
and I'm an alcoholic.
Hi, Amy.
Tonight's meeting
is a closed meeting.
Anyone who has a desire to stop
drinking is welcome to stay.
Any newcomers?
Please stand up
and introduce yourself.
We'd like to welcome you.
My name is Calvin Campbell.
I live here,
St. Matthews.
And, um...
I have a daughter.
She's 17.
who I...
I love her more than anything.
And, um...
Yeah, that's about it.
- Hi, Calvin.
- Hi, Calvin.
Thank you.
Um, just for future,
first name only is fine.
That's kind of
the anonymous part.
And, um...
it's customary to state
that you're an alcoholic.
That part is...
All right,
tonight I'll be reading from step three.
"Made a decision
to turn our will and lives
over to the care of God
as we understood Him."
Do you love me, Colt?
You don't love me.
Why would you even say that?
If you loved me,
we'd be in the backseat
right now and I'd be hitting it.
What did you just say to me?
- Nothing.
- All right, get out of my car, Katie.
I'm not doing this baby
stuff with you anymore.
I'm over it, all right?
Get out.
- You know what? You are a prick.
- Yeah, and you know what?
You're not hot enough for me to
be trying this hard anymore.
Get out.
- Hello?
- Hey.
- Hey, you okay?
- Will you come pick me up?
- Yeah.
- I-I would have called someone else, but...
- I'm behind the Valumarket.
- What are you doing there?
Well, Colt wanted to go somewhere
that we could be alone.
I... just please
come get me?
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
I'm coming to get you right now.
I'll be right there.
- Hey, Miss Katie.
- Hi, Produce.
I probably look silly just standing
out here all by myself in the dark.
Are you cold?
Yeah, but won't you be cold?
Thank you.
I think you look beautiful.
- Well, you're very sweet.
- You're welcome.
Produce, listen to me.
I need you to go back inside, okay?
Produce, go back inside.
- What are you doing here?
- No, leave him alone. He didn't do anything.
Listen, I don't care about the 'tard,
I'm talking to you.
I came back to apologize, Katie.
I'm sorry for
what I said earlier.
Damn, you drunk again,
Mr. Campbell?
- You touch either one of them...
- You'll what?
Go home.
- We're over, Colt.
Okay. Fine.
Have it your way.
Thanks for coming.
I'm trying, Katie.
- I'm trying.
- I know.
- Thanks, Dad.
- And you...
thank you
for protecting my daughter.
You're welcome.
I wish there was something
we could do to repay you.
- I'm so glad
- That troubles don't
Troubles don't last always
- I'm so glad
- I'm so glad
Troubles don't -
Troubles don't last always
- O Lord, what should I do?
- O Lord, what should I do?
I said that I...
I'm certain that...
We're gonna leave
in a couple of minutes.
So what did you guys
think of the service?
Well, I mean, she liked it.
She was smiles and, I liked it.
Think you guys
will make it back?
I don't know.
You know?
It's been a long time since I've
darkened the doorway of a...
Of a church?
Yeah, of a church.
I just... you know.
I haven't had much faith
in anything in a long time.
I hear you.
- Yeah.
- How's everything else been going?
One day at a time.
That's right.
Hey, um, can we...
can I take you
to get some coffee or...
- Um...
- Yeah.
Yeah, you got coffee.
- Hey, Katie.
- You ready to go?
I am.
Katie, this is Miss Amy.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Nice to meet you.
- It's really nice to meet you.
I've heard a lot about you.
Well, hopefully all good.
- Sometimes.
- Thanks.
- Definitely all good.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
- All right.
- Bye. Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you, too.
- Come on, Dad.
- Come back.
- We will.
- I'll see you later.
You swing with
your club face open.
What do you know? You swing a
club worse than you swing a bat.
Did you just come here
to mock my golf game?
I came here to apologize.
Cal, the things I said to you,
man, everything I said...
Hey, what you said was true
and I needed to hear it.
- Missed you, buddy.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- You should be sorry.
- It was a cheap shot.
Let's get out of here.
Let's get a beer.
How about we make it a coffee?
- A coffee?
- AA.
You're not an alcoholic, Cal.
I am.
I'm an alcoholic.
Okay, happy hour.
Two for one.
Two for me, none for you.
- Hey, Dexter.
- Hey, what's up, Calvin?
How you doing?
So today is the day
that you announce
the Employee
of the Month, right?
- Yeah, why?
- Well, um, have you considered Produce?
- He's a hard worker.
- Now, Cal, I have a soft spot
- in my heart for that young man.
- Yeah, I know.
That's why I hired him
the first time.
He's a good boy.
He's a good guy.
Now... now, look, Cal.
Now, Produce ain't got
the sense God gave a cucumber.
- Now, I gotta give
that award to employee that represent
what this supermarket is about.
This ain't no YMCA where
everybody gets a trophy.
Okay, and with all due respect,
I think that Produce is probably the
hardest-working employee that you have.
I mean he knows the name and the
SKU number, the code or whatever
to every piece of fruit
and vegetable over in your...
- Now, Cal.
- ...section over there.
Just because the boy's a retard,
he don't get no special treatment.
- You know better than that, man.
- You know what?
We don't use the "R"
word just like we don't use the "N" word.
You know?
We should be clear
on our word choice, Dexter.
Let's get out of here.
Wanna go have some fun?
Let's go.
Well, do you guys wanna
hit the go-karts?
- Go-karts? Do we?
- Yeah! I'll do the go-karts.
We were made to hit
the go-karts, Produce.
Born to ride!
Good morning, sunshine
It's nice to see you up
Once in a while
It's 12:00 already
The city bus is gone,
you're late again
But I'll give you a ride
I know you don't like it
when I tell you how to live
But something's gotta give
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain.
There you go.
You're making this
hard on me, Milt.
Come on, don't be soft.
They call that enabling.
It's called testing.
Good job, you passed.
These are actually both for me.
- Where's your family at?
- Franklin's dropping them off.
We're playing house.
All right, give me a sip.
- Really?
- Yeah, just a sip, a taste, to knock off the edge.
Are you sure about this?
One sip.
I've been real, real good.
Come on.
I may have lost
my drinking buddy,
but I still gotta look out
for my best friend.
Besides, the beer was terrible.
Tasted stale.
- Did it?
- No.
I just remembered I had this.
I don't want a sip of that.
Look who we found,
Mr. Campbell.
Produce wanted me to come
have pizza with him.
- Amy.
- Hi, I'm Milt Malcolm.
- Hi. Nice to meet you.
- How are you? Nice to meet you.
Nice work.
Cavalry has arrived.
Excuse me, folks.
See ya, buddy.
All right, come on, let's go.
- Let's go.
- Come on.
I'll be right there.
Thank you so much.
It means a lot.
I... I'm sorry.
Listen, that...
that wasn't anything...
I'm not listening to you!
You're killing me. You're killing me!
Hey, Produce,
you want to go play some games?
- Yeah!
- Yeah?
- Bye.
- See ya later.
- Wait...
- Ha.
- Wait...
- We just got ditched.
Yeah, I think your daughter
just stole him from me.
- Hi.
- How you doing?
I'm good, yeah.
Come on, go get a pizza.
- Pizza.
- Talking your language?
That's unique.
I know how to do this.
I love laser tag.
Hey! We're on
the same team, remember?
Hey, Katie.
Come on.
- I wanna play.
- No, we can play later.
Come on, guys,
it's the last game of the night.
Then we can come back tomorrow.
We're on the same team,
I'll protect you.
My gosh, you got me, man.
Come on, guys.
It's just a silly game of laser tag.
- Come on, Katie, let's beat 'em!
- Let's go.
- What?
- What do you need to be so rude for, Katie?
- What does that mean?
- Remember? Remember you used to say you loved me?
- No, Colt. What are you doing?
- Once upon a time.
- I just wanna talk, that's all.
- Okay, well, I don't wanna talk.
- Yeah, you don't need to talk.
- No, you need to put your hands off me.
No, no, listen,
I just want you to lay back down right now.
- That's it.
- You're disgusting.
- Disgusting?
- No, my dad was right about you.
- My God.
- Stop!
- Stop! Get off!
- Shh!
This would be easier if you just...
- Hey, I shot you guys!
- Get out of here, Produce.
No! Is that Miss Katie?
- Get out of here!
- Shut up, Katie!
- No!
- Now!
Shut up!
Will you shut up?
Shut up. Come on, shut up!
- Dad!
- Yeah?
Dad, please come help.
What's wrong, baby?
What's wrong?
Produce hit Colt
and it's really bad.
Hey, should you call 911?
What did you do, Produce?
- You're not proud of me?
- No, I'm not proud of you!
You cannot hit somebody
with a fire extinguisher!
I mean, are you...
are you crazy?!
I thought we'd be like brothers!
You go call your mom right now!
And you bring her here, Produce.
Dad, it wasn't his fault.
He was just trying to
protect me from Colt.
- Wh... what do you mean?
- I don't know what would have happened if he didn't...
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Now is he gonna be all right?
Once he gets treated,
we'll take him in
and interview him, find out a little
bit more about what happened.
- Okay.
- Where's the kid?
Obviously, we'll need
to talk to him.
We don't know.
Um, he just took off.
Okay, I'll send some officers to...
to go look for him.
Is he gonna be in trouble?
I don't foresee that.
I think it's...
we just need to ask him
some questions.
Find out a little bit more
about... about what went on.
All right, well, it's my fault,
so I'm gonna get in the car
and I'm just gonna go
look for him.
All right, I'm gonna stay here and
see if I can get ahold of him.
- Okay.
- Okay, I'll go with you.
- Thank you, Officer.
- Certainly.
- Let us know if you find out anything.
- Absolutely.
We can't just be
driving around blindly
looking for him all night.
- We have no choice.
- Yeah, we do.
I think I'm gonna take you home.
Maybe just wait for him there.
Maybe he'll show up
at the house.
No, he's not gonna
show up at the house, Dad.
And I'd rather be
with you right now.
What does Milt want?
Hey, buddy boy,
what do you need?
Let's meet up, man.
Let's meet up.
No, I can't right now.
Katie and I are looking for Produce.
- We're just driving around.
- I talked with him.
- Can't do that right now.
- Frank, he said he wasn't sleeping with her.
She wanted to.
I believe him, man.
Hey! Milt?
Hey, answer me!
Hey. Hey, Amy.
Hey, is Produce okay?
No, not good.
- Are you his father?
- No.
Dr. Jones wants to speak
to his next of kin
to discuss what's going
to be happening today.
All right,
we'll call his mother.
No, she died over a year ago.
He talks about her all the time.
I know.
I'm... I'm so sorry.
I thought you knew.
Ho... ho...
hold on a second.
So you're telling me
that he lives all on his own?
Even... even with his...
with... with his condition?
Does that really surprise you?
The patient with DS is...
really wants a book or his book...
You know what? Let me talk to him.
I'll talk to him.
I'm sorry.
I'm only allowed to have family back there.
- Please.
- Ma'am, we are the only family that he has.
- Okay? Amy, do you mind sticking with Katie?
- Yeah.
- I got it. Thank you.
- Where is he?
Thank you very much.
Hey. Hey.
Hey, buddy.
How you doing, Produce?
Hey, Produce, how you doing?
- Hurts so bad.
- Yeah.
I bet you do.
Hey, I just wanted
to say that I'm sorry.
Back at that laser tag place,
I... I realize you were
just trying to protect Katie.
I just wanted to say thank you.
You're welcome,
Mr. Campbell.
I'm sorry, Cal.
- I want to have my book.
- You want your book?
- You want your book?
- Yes.
You want your book!
I'm gonna go get your book.
I'll be right back.
Your wife's on her way.
- Hey, darling.
- Hey, Dad.
Hey, sweetheart,
will you run to the car real quick
and grab Produce's Bible for me?
- Hi. How are you doing?
- I'm fine. Fine.
- You okay?
- I'm fine.
I just saw Milt.
He looks good.
He's gonna be all right.
Wanna go back and see him?
Actually, um, I'm not sure
he wants to see me.
I mean, I think...
I think that he would wanna see you.
You sure?
You know, I don't wanna
get him all worked up.
- Okay.
- So...
Okay. Okay.
You okay?
Hey, here's the book I got
that you asked for.
It's not for me.
What are you...
what are you talking about?
It's for him.
We're looking at blunt trauma
to the left upper abdomen,
ruptured spleen, severe internal bleeding,
and hypertension.
Should I order an
exploratory laparotomy?
No time. Make sure we're prepped
for a splenectomy, stat.
I don't wanna lose this kid.
Mr. Campbell.
You're gonna be all right,
kid, I promise.
Please don't leave me here.
Hey, I'm right here, Milt.
I'm right here, pal.
Look what the kid gave you.
- He's a good kid.
- Yeah.
- I'm scared, Cal.
- Hey, hey.
You're gonna be all right.
My mom used to do that
back when I was a kid...
read me the Bible.
I used to like Matthew.
I can't remember why.
Hey, Sue?
Come on.
All right.
Pick up.
"...who are weary
and burdened.
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you
and learn from me.
- For I am gentle and humble in heart..."
- We need to get him
- into surgery now.
- "...and you will find rest..."
Give me another set
of retractors.
I see some bleeding
in the left kidney.
Get two units of blood, stat!
More suction!
- There you go.
- Bring that in closer.
Hey, thanks.
What did you say?
- When?
- When you prayed.
I don't know.
I said a prayer, too.
That was the first time
I've actually prayed.
Me, too.
I-I asked that Milt and
Produce will be okay.
- Do you think it'll happen?
- I hope so.
I hope so.
But I don't know if that's the
way it works, sweetheart.
Well, then, what good is it to pray
if you don't get what you ask for?
Growing up, did I get you
everything that you ever asked for?
- Of course not.
- No.
But I love you so much
and I want you to have
everything that you want,
but sometimes it's not
in your best interest
or it's just...
it's just a hard decision.
It's not fair.
I'm saying that God...
is probably not a genie...
you know, that's granting
every wish or...
I don't know.
I don't know.
Maybe you're right.
I hope that you get
what you asked for tonight.
Thanks, Dad.
He's crashing! Come on!
Doctor, get that
off of the paper.
Get two units of blood!
Where's the CO2?
You know,
it's in moments like these
I'm reminded
of one profound truth.
Life is short.
And it's meant to be lived
with courage
and not laden with fear.
And you have to decide
are your dreams bigger
than your memories?
Or will you stay
stuck in the past?
Life is meant to be lived.
Lived abundantly.
You know, you look around this cemetery,
you see there are...
there are two dates
on every tombstone.
There's a birthdate
and there is a date of death.
Every human being
is guaranteed those two dates,
but that little dash
that lies in between
those two numbers,
that's what defines our life.
So make your dash count.
Really live.
Ladies and gentlemen,
let's welcome
our new Louisville Bats manager,
Calvin Campbell,
who will now take the mound
to throw out the first pitch.
I want to dedicate
this first pitch
to someone very important to me,
who's not able to be here
with us tonight because...
his life ended way too soon.
can I have a ball, please?
Yeah! Ha-ha!
That's my boy!
- Knock 'em down, man.
- Thanks.
This one's for Milt.
Produce! Produce! Produce!
Produce! Produce!
Produce! Produce!
Produce! Produce!
where the heck have you been?
I don't know.
Good morning, sunshine
It's nice to see you up
Once in a while
It's 12:00 already
The city bus is gone,
you're late again
But I'll give you a ride
I know you don't like it
when I tell you how to live
But something's gotta give
So let it out,
you gotta move on
Before you lose all you love
And have to start over again
Maybe that's how
you'll learn about
Life, love, and pain
You say you're dry now
But to me it looks like rain
And I don't want to see you
Get soaked
all over again...
Dead man walking
You're stumbling
down the street
At half past 3:00
Sooner or later
you'll find the police
And they'll find me
Now I can understand
If you don't know
who you are
And where you wanna go
My impatience
is starting to show
So pick it up,
pack it all on
You better start soon
or I'll be gone
I'm not gonna wait
Maybe that's how
you'll learn about
Life, love, and pain
You say you're dry now
But to me it looks like rain
And I don't want to see you
Get soaked all over again
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain
Life, love, and pain.
My heart holds a question
between every beat
Got every answer
beneath my feet
Fallin' apart,
but I never know why
I've walked every road
but the one that's right
Been chasin' my tail
instead of my dream
Life's just a game,
but you play it for keeps
The world is kind,
the world is cruel
The world you find
depends on you
When did I stop
Wake me from this sleep
Wake me from this sleep
Save me from these dreams
When did I stop
I guess I'm alive,
but I tend to forget
I remember the taste
and this isn't it
My heart holds a question,
I don't have a clue
It's strange we forget
everything we knew.
