What are you thinking?

- Nothing.

- You can't be thinking nothing.

Let me guess. You're thinking,

"How in hell did I get here?"

How do you think we all got here?

I don't know.

We committed crimes, Henry.

But we committed to the wrong thing.

See, that was a mistake.

We never fulfilled our potential.

See this guy here in the middle?

Don't stare at him.

Name's Hector.

He wanted to be a doctor.


And he could have been a good one.

Well, good or bad, I don't know.

But he chose not to fulfil

his potential. Now look at him.

So I'm talking about bad choices.

I recommend these potatoes.

They're really terrific.

Give him a little extra,

please, Charlie. Thank you.

See, the real crime

is not committing to your dream.

What is yours, anyway?

- My what?

- Your dream.

Not sure I ever had one.

Never had a dream?

I mean, what kinda life's that?

I don't know. A pretty good one.


I don't er... mean any offence, Henry,

but you're in jail.

Are you going to eat

the rest of this wholewheat?

- No.

- Thanks.

- Hi.

- Hi.

How are you?

I'm OK.

How about you?

I'm good.

You look beautiful.


...there's something

I have to talk to you about.



I fell in love.


I just... I mean, it just happened.

I'm really sorry.

- It's all right.

- You're not mad?


I want you to be happy.

Hey, Max, when's your next review?


Show us

what you did last time for the board.

I'm working. Stop.

- What? One time.

- Come on, show us.

- Show us!

- Leave me alone, OK?

- Just once, come on.

- Come on!

Pain in the ass. All right.

So last time, um... I'm sitting there,

and um... the Head of the Board

comes and says,

"OK, Max, what are you going to do

for us this time if we let you out?"

I get the old twitch working,
