Look here. We ain't got a lot of time.

I'm gonna give you all my drawings

and all my clothes.

When you get older, they may fit you,

and you may want to wear them.

- I'm not gonna see you again after this?

- No.


'Cause I'm a bad man.

Who says?

I do.

- But I want you to know something.

- What?

You ain't me.

- Yes, I am.

- No, you're not.

You're everything that's good about me.

You're the best of what I am,

that's what you are.

This man you see sitting here today,

you ain't.

Hey, baby. You look nice today.

You always look nice.

Tyrell, tell your daddy

what you won at school.

Oh, yeah, right.

My drawing is gonna be used

on the school magazine cover.

- You know what I did?

- What'd you do?

Go on. Just tell him.

Don't be playing no guessing game.

I made a picture of you,

sitting alone, in jail.

Theme was solitude.

Way to go, Ty. Way to go. Put it there, boy.

Not too bad.

What's going on with the car?

It's leaking radiator fluid.

You need to take it in right away.

Have them check the hoses.

That car get too hot,

you gonna be in trouble.

The house?

I'm losing it.

I can't afford to make the payments

no more.

Not no more.

I'm sorry, baby.

Ty, let me and your mama talk for a second.


Come on now.

Only reason I'm here

so you could say goodbye to your son.


I been coming here

for damn near 11 years, Lawrence,

and I'm tired.

I'm tired of coming here.

- Time.

- Come on, so soon?

Well, I gotta get going, baby.

It's time for me to go, Ty.

I'm gonna call you.

You wait by the phone, okay?

Come on now.

Come on, Ty, you gotta let go. Come on.

Come on, Tyrell.

For every time I hurt you, I'm sorry.

Come on.

Ma'am, let's go.

Let's go.

Ma'am, let's go.

I know my way out of here. Come on, Tyrell.
