for a crime I did not commit.

If people saw me on television,

they would realize

that underneath it all,

I am just like everyone else.

I think this show would be

educational and popular.

And maybe it would help everyone

figure out the truth

about what actually

happened to me."

Let's see,

I'll have three onion.

And two rolls.

You know what?

Since you're about to close,

can I get 14

for the price of a dozen?

Sorry, my manager says no.

But you're just gonna

throw them away.

I mean,

I come here all the time.

Sure thing.

You can have 14.


So the rest will be... everything.

You know what?

I don't have any cash.

Can I write you a check?

- Certainly.

- Great.


- Excuse me?

- What?

You know what?

I'm gonna need

some cash back, too.

How much are you gonna need?

A hundred.

Of course, ma'am.


Ronnie, you're killin' me here.

You can take off.

Thanks, Clarice.

- Maybe it's because of the table.

- Kayla, art is for making a mess.

Don't be so scared.

Don't be so afraid.

Art is not for conforming,

art is for creating, right?

Hey, Ms. Manning,

can I see you for a second?

Just a moment.

All right, you go ahead.

I'll be right back.

All right, yeah.

Kayla's afraid to draw

in a goddamn coloring book.

She's afraid she's no good

if she doesn't impress you.

Excuse me...

Mrs. West?

I teach children to be original,

to express themselves

uniquely, independently...

She's eight.

Who gives a shit?

I do.

I'm trying to give her

an art education.

Regardless of whether or not

that is something

that you can understand

or appreciate.

I want what's good for my kid.

And if she wants to draw

in a fucking coloring book

for the rest of her life,

that's okay with me.

- Please. Language.

- Well, then, I feel sorry
