That's that.


- I ain't leaving, I ain't

leaving the neighborhood.

- One more "ain't" and

I soap out that mouth.

You're going. We're all going.


- I ain't. I'm not going.

- We're leaving this city.

I don't have the chance of

an ice cube in a frying pan

of making things better

as long as we stay.

- I'm sick of moving around.

- That's too bad.

You're the man of the house.

Have you forgotten the

promise you made me?

You swore you'd help me with

your brothers and sisters,

that I could always count on you.

You gave me your word.

- Yeah.

- And that won't be easy,

but I can't do it without you, Shayne.

You get some sleep.

I'll make you a promise.

You do this for me, and

we'll never move again.


- [Shayne] So we left L.A.

We sold everything we could.

What we couldn't sell or

fit into our '48 Plymouth,

we gave away.

When most families take a trip,

they know where they're going.

Not us.

Mama just pointed the car,

sort of north, sort of east,

and away we went.

- [Lynn] Ma, would you tell

Murray and Annie to quit it?

- [Frances] Would you two stop?

(Murray laughs teasingly)

- Mama.

- [Frances] Nobody gets the bunny.

- [Annie] I did not, Craig!

- [Craig] Yes, you did!

- [Annie] Did not.

- [Craig] Did too.

- [Annie] Mama, I have to pee-pee.

- [Craig] You just did.

- Did not.

- [Frances] If you kids don't stop this,

I'm gonna leave you by

the side of the road.

Annie, you just went. Pipe down.

- [Annie] Did not!

- [Craig] Did too.

- [Annie] Did not.

- Pipe down, you two.

- [Annie] Did not.

- [Craig] Did too.

- [Annie] Did not.

- I'm gonna come back there.

You don't want me to come back there.

- [Voiceover] Jimmy Johnson, K.i.F.l.

- Shayne, leave it for

just a second, will you?

I'd like to hear just one
