Do another one.

So sorry for your loss. He'll be missed.

Our prayers are with you in this difficult time.

- Too formal.

- Yeah. I like it, though.

- My name's not Marcus, you know.

- I figured.

I'm not sure why I picked that.

You don't really look like a Marcus.

I'm Enoch.

Much better. I'm Annabel.

But I already told you that.

- So did you know that cancer kid?

- What?

The kid from the other funeral?

Yeah. I volunteer at the hospital.

In the Webber building.

Is that where all the cancer kids are?

Kids with cancer.


Not really.

What are you reading?

It's a new biography on Darwin.

The evolution guy?

Yeah. He's kind of my favorite.

- Why?

- "Why?"

Well, only because he's the father

of the greatest idea

a human being has ever had.

Not to mention the fact

that he was brilliant enough

to see nature's design

laid out right in front of him.

And maybe just because

he was the most important scientific mind

that ever was or ever will be

in the history of history.

- What about Einstein?

- What about him?

All right.

Well, I'm gonna get home or whatever.

Okay. Yeah, me, too.

Thanks for bailing me out back there.

Yeah. Any time.


I don't know why we still eat in here.

Did you look at those school brochures

I left on your bed?


There's some really great schools in the city.

And Henderson has this great college

prep course,

and I know the headmaster at...

May I be excused, Mabel?

Why don't you call me

Auntie Mabel anymore?


No. With your whole body.

No, that's too far.

Like this?

- No way.

- This feels pretty good.

I'll take a good old-fashioned handshake

any day.

A bow is a sign of deep respect.

So's a handshake.

Come on, try it.

Enoch Brae, nice to meet you.

White people. You have to grab everything.
