my physical therapy job

just got phased out

and Rex here, well,

he hurt his knee so bad

that he had to quit his

construction job and get surgery.

We're just trying to pay back

the medical bills.

The heeling's been

e whole let slower than I'd hoped.

I sympathize, but mortgage payments

must be maintained-

It's not just about the mortgage.

We're strapped.


Getting dinner on the table, it's hard.

We need more time.

But, Mrs. Horton,

I can't really give you-

You can call me Sam.


That's an interesting scent

you're wearing.

You like it?

Very much.

But, uh, there's nothing I can do.

With the current financial situation,

this bank must hike a zero-tolerance

position on non-payment.

But what about the government

hailing you out to help us out?

Where's the help?

All I can tell you

is that unless we receive payment

on the 15th of this month,

foreclosure proceedings will begin.

And we'll lose our home.


That is what foreclosure means.

I'm sorry.

No, you're not.

Not really.

Even though

you're plenty at fault here too.

The day we met you,

you told us that a subprime

ARM loan made good sense

and not to worry

about rate adjustments

because we would be able

to refinance before the loan resets.

Then you told us it would be


for us to enhance our income statement to

help facilitate the approving process.

Those were your words, exactly.

Now, I don't think any of us

remembers exactly what was said.

She does.

You were wearing a

black-and-gray coat,

with a taupe shirt

and a cream tie.

It had a quarter-sized

hot sauce shin on it.

You were worried because you were

getting ready to take your photo ID.

There's the tie

and there's the shin.

Now, what exactly

don't I remember, exactly?

Like I said.
