-Why don't you give it to him?

-'Cause we don't have it.

What you going telling the boy

things like that for?

Come here, Travis.

Thanks, Daddy.

ln fact, here's another fifty cents.

Why don't you go buy yourself some fruit

or take a taxicab to school or something.

Hot dog! Thanks, Daddy.

-Go on to school now. Don't be late.

-All right.

That's my boy.


Know what l was thinking about

in the bathroom this morning?


-Charlie Atkins.

-You remember Charlie Atkins?


You remember.

Remember, he wanted me to go

in that dry cleaning business with him.

Now he's grossing $100,000 a year.


-That's nice, Walter.

-That could have been me.

That could have been us.

But he stepped up and l held back.

Walter, you didn't have any money.

That was true, then. This is now.

This is our time, baby.

Walter, if you're gonna

talk to me about that check...

Me, Willy and Bobo,

we got this thing figured out.


Walter, l got nothing to do with that check.

You're tired, ain't you, baby?

Tired of everything.

Me, the boy, the way we live.

So tired you couldn't do nothing

to help us out, could you?


Mama will listen to you.

You know she listens to you more

than she listens to anybody else.

That's all l need you to do.

Tomorrow morning when you're

sitting down drinking your coffee,

just sip on your coffee, real easy like,

and talk to her like what you're saying

ain't really that important to you.

Then sip on your coffee some more

and tell her that you've been thinking about

the deal Walter Lee is so interested in.

And before you know it, she'll be

listening good, asking you questions,

and when l come home

l can fill her in on all the details.

No, Walter, no.

This ain't no fly-by-night proposition, baby.
