My father says

that we're born into families

so that we canssons

and get over past mistakes.

He calls it "karma,"

I must have made

in my last life.

Get a job,

you stinkin' hippie!


This one's comingny.

I can't do this.

This is not the time

to be discussing

this, jade.

I can't do it

well, maybe

we can just wait

until we cross the border.

Welcome to Canada.

Hi. Purpose of your trip?

Uh, we're immigrating.

Ah. Reasons for

your immigration, sir?

Well, I'm

a conscientious objector

to the Vietnam war.


I love you, redwood.

Ethan, I'm leaving.


this is crazy, jade.

I can't do it.

No, no.

It's not too late.

I can't leave.

Just wait, all right?

Excuse me.

Am I interrupting something?

Jade, this is crazy! Jade!

One moment, please.

Hey. Hey. Hey, hey!


listen to me, okay?

You know I can't go back.

It could be dangerous.

There's more to it,

you know that!

Excuse me, sir.

If you...

just one moment for me, please.

Sure, sure.

- Jade, listen.

- Let go of me!

No. Hey, hey.

Let go of me!

You can't leave us!

Let go of me!

- You can't leave us!

In other news today...

golfing great Jack nicklaus,

three masters championships

nicklaus has not won a major

resulting in firing

of his long-time caddy,

with this move,

nicklaus is hoping

to once again capture the magic

he once possessed

and winher green jacket

at the masters.

I can't!

Just stop! Please.

Just stop.

I don't really remember

when my mother left,

when I was introduced

the parting of ways

has not been favorable

to the trinidadian.

Jack nicklaus is the best

even without ruben...

And when I beat Jack,

everything will go back

redwood forest Hansen has got

175 yards

to the treacherous 16th hole

at Augusta national.

Nicklaus is safely on...

40 feet from the pin.

A good approach shot here should

give him a great chance,

with three holes left

to beat Jack nicklaus

and capture

his first green jacket

at the masters.


Never have we seen

an 11-year-old

at this position

at the masters.

It's an incredible, Charles,

just incredible.


It ain't over, red.

Jack's on

that dance floor, too,

and he's good

with that flat stick.

Yeah, but that is tight, ruben,

and Jack's got

an uphill slider.


Keep your focus, red.

We got

three holes left.

Eyes on the prize, baby!

Eyes on the prize.

Redwood, dinner!

Dad, I'm on 16,

and just hit it tight,

and Jack hasn't hit yet!

Well, Jack's going to have to

wait till tomorrow,

'cause you're already

a half-hour late.

Move it!

Dad! I could

be on my way

to my first

masters title.

No 11-year-old

has ever gotten this close.

Do you know how hard it is

to beat Jack nicklaus?

I mean,

everything would change.

Custom paint job?

Hey, jonno.

Yeah, not bad

for $13.99, huh?

No wonder

you're still single.

What's up?

Sorry I didn't call.

You got any time?

Aww, for you, my man,

anytime, anytime.

How's red?

Well, it's more like

"where's red?"

Looking good, man.

What on earth are you

feeding these things?

Thanks, man.

Classical music.

Yeah, it helps them

relax and grow.

No shit.


"Mozart's flute concerto

number 2 in d-major"

seems to work

the best.

Well, helps, don't it?

Speaking of growing...

Little man!

Uncle jonno!


Not cool, red.

I'm gonna have to

get you a watch.

But, dad,

I hit it stiff on 16,

and Jack has a 40-foot slider,

and not to mention

that ruben says 18

fits my fade perfectly.

I'm telling you, dad,

I've got him,

I've got Jack.

All right, that's enough.

- But I...
