Stop. Please don't.

What are you doing?

When you're a pro,

you can't do that!

One-two. One-two.




One. One.

One-two. One-two.

One-two. One-two-three.

Hey, Troy.


Doc ain't here no more, man.

Where is he?

Died about three months ago.

One-two. One-two.

Oh, man. I didn't know.

I was inside.

What happened to him?

Well, I'm running the place now.

That's how it is.

Well, what happened to him?

Cancer. Look, man.

All the stuff

that went down with you,

and you just getting out

of prison, I can't have you

up in here, man.

Know what I'm saying?

Hey, come on, man.

No, you come on, sucker!

This is how it is.

Man, I really need this.

It's all I've got.

You look past your prime age.

My man, all I want

to do is train.

Yeah. If doc was here,

he'd let me train.

Doc ain't here.


No, he sure isn't.

Let's go! One-two.

One-two. One-two.



What do you want?

It's good to see you, too.

Yeah, well, there's

nothing for you here.

I need a place to stay.

Just for a couple of weeks.

I can't do it, Vian.

I just can't.

With everything that's

happened, I'm sorry.

It's just for a few weeks.

I won't be long.

They left the house

to me, you know.

It's in my name.



Jimmy, this is, uh...

this is your Uncle Vian.

Hello. Are you coming in?

No, no, no. He was just, um...

he's just coming by to say hi.


Mom, I think

he wanted to come in.

Don't you have some homework

that you should be doing?

I already did it.


Thank you, God, for this food

we are about to receive.

Amen. Amen.

Here, sweetie.

Mm, that's a really

good meatball.

You can stay here for two weeks.

If you drink, you have to leave.

I haven't had a drink

for 12 years.

Since I went in.

That's good. Glad to hear that.

It's too bad it took what it did

for you to get that.


Brought you a sleeping bag.

Oh, thanks.

So, I've got some work

to catch up on...


See you in a bit.

Hey, Uncle Vian.

Hi, Jimmy.

I looked you up on the Internet.


Yeah. It said that your

record was 2 and 7 as a pro.


Are you still going to fight,

now that you're out of prison?

I don't know.

I think you'd do

really good, Uncle vi.

Thanks, Jimmy.

I'm gonna go back

to reading my book.

You like to read?

Yeah. Yeah, sometimes.

Okay. Good night.

Yeah, good night.

How many push-ups is that?

A lot.

Well, how many is that?

Is it true what

my dad said about you?

What did he say?

That you were a pimp

and a pusher.

I did sell drugs once,

but I was never a pimp.

Is it true that

you killed a man?


What happened?

I don't want to talk about it.


Oh, hi.

Hi, hi. I was...

I was told to see you

about work.

Okay. Uh, have you

been to prison?


Okay, yeah. Um, look, man.

I'm... I'm really sorry.

We can't hire ex-cons.

It's, uh...


It's an insurance issue.

Yeah, I know.

I'm really... no.

Okay. Uh, I'm sorry.

Hey. Don't stop running.

You want to kick?

Just trust the ball

will be there.

But I have to stop

before I catch it.

Just keep running.

When you turn right,

trust that the ball will

be there in the pocket.

What? Want me

to catch it for you?

Shut up.

Hike it again.

And you should go left.

Look, just keep running, huh?

Keep running. Okay, hike.

You want me to throw for you?

Very funny. Give me the ball.

Gimme. And... hike!


Ah! Hey!

Good catch!

That was a great catch!




What's wrong?

Having a hard time

with money, that's all.

It's hard...

Being a single mom.

Hey, sorry.

It's okay.

I know that God will provide.

Yeah, and I'm gonna

win the lottery.

You're pitiful.

You know that? Pitiful.

Hey, sweetie. I'm gonna

go to the market.

Can I come, too?

Yeah? You wanna?

Can Uncle vi come?


Well, thanks.

I didn't mean what I said

about the lottery.


Mom, can we make

chocolate chip cookies?

Sure, baby.


Okay, let's see.

Why don't you guys

go ahead and get some...

Lettuce, tomatoes

and gala apple.

Here, use these.

They might be on sale.

Okay, mom.

Throw for a pass.


Come here.

Go for a touchdown.

Hey. Touchdown!

Is that your son?

That's my sister's kid.

Great example, throwing

fruit around in the market.

Well, I haven't seen him

in a long time, and...

Hey, my name's Vian.


Hi. What's your name?



Uncle vi, are you

trying to pick her up?

Yeah, Jimmy, I am.

Cool. I'm gonna go find mom.

I, uh... hey, you, uh...

you want to see a movie

some time, or...

get a coffee, maybe meet

in a park, take a walk?

What are you, in high school?

Come on. Why don't you

give me your number?

Why don't you give me yours?


The man should always call.

Well, I don't give

my number to strange men.

Ah. Hey, my act's strange?

Well, you were playing catch

with an apple

in the supermarket.

Hey, come on.

Let me give you a call.

Nice to meet you, Vian.

Hey, sure. See ya.

Did you get her phone number?


You gotta get back into practice

and get the scent back on you.





Hey, uh... could

I ask you something?

What star sign are you?

Are you serious?

No, I, uh... I want to know.

Okay, I'll give you

three guesses.

Okay, uh... capricorn?

Nope. Libra?


Taurus. Huh?

Nope. That's

your three chances.

Hey, uh, cancer.
