He likes this

God's eye and...

When he's walking,

he might need it.

(SOFTLY) Tom,

I want you to be calm.

(STOPS YELLING)

Good.

Can you sit down for me?

Can you do that for me?

Can you sit down,

please?

Good.

Thank you.

You know,

who Tom is now

is pretty much who Tom

is always going to be.

People can sacrifice

their entire lives

taking care of

an autistic child.

Don't feel guilty

if you can't.

(WHISPERING)

(DOOR OPENS)

There seems

to be a problem.

Your check is being denied

due to insufficient funds?

No, that's... That's

not right. That little...

(DIALING)

Do you have

another resource?

No.

What about

your stepfather?

No. There's money in there.

ON PHONE:

This is Mr. Fenton.

Hi, Mr. Fenton,

this is Kelly Taylor.

Hi, Kelly.

How are you?

Could you check the balance

of my account for me?

Your stepfather withdrew all

the money from that account.

It's closed.

When?

Yesterday.

So...

He said he was

changing your house

into some sort

of safari ranch?

I hope that's

not a surprise.

Yeah, I don't...

I don't really care about the

animal thing. That money was for Tom.

Kelly, sounds like you should

take this up with Johnny.

Thank you.

MAN 1:
Wait a minute,

wait a minute.

MAN 2:
Okay!

Let's go! Unhitch it!

(BANGING ON CAGE)

(MEN CHATTERING)

Hey,.hombres,

I understand that

the power of hurricanes

has almost doubled

in the past 30 years.

Now, whether that has

to do with global warming

doesn't much

matter to me,

but what does matter is getting

this place battened down. Now.

(MAN 1 BECKONING TIGER)

(TIGER CONTINUES GROWLING)

(MAN 2 SPEAKING SPANISH)

(HISSING)

Hey!

(SPEAKING SPANISH)

(MAN 2 SCREAMING)

Shit!

(MEN YELLING IN SPANISH)

Get me a rag!

Here, here, here. Shit!
