Edwin Boyd


Mom, how come you don't drive

a motorcycle anymore?

Well, that was only

during the war.

You know, during the war,

your father used to perform

all the time with his friends.

And he was in a band.

He was a star.

And do you have

any of those photos?

I have to finish

the McLeans' laundry first.

What are you drawing?

A rainbow.

A rainbow?



You scared us.

Yeah, I bet I did.

- You didn't scare me.

- Yeah, sure.

Hey, you recognize the voice?

- Yeah, it's you.

- It is me.

Why are you home early?

Is everything all right?

Nothing's wrong. Why does

something have to be wrong?

I got a guy

to cover half my shift.

It's the second time

this month.

Well, I wasn't

gonna miss tonight.

Look, don't worry so much.

Come on.

Come dance with me.

Eddie, I've forgotten

how to dance.

- No, you haven't.

- I have.

Give me your hand.

Like this. Remember?


What do you think

of the record?

Love it.

You love it?

You know who you sound like?

What? Like Tony Bennett?

Tony Bennett.

That's just what I thought.

You wish.

" There is nothing for me

but to love you. "

Happy birthday.

Thank you.


Not bad, he?

We still got it.

I think so.

I think so.

" Just the way you look. "

You know I didn't

bring you here from England

to live like this.

I came for you, Edwin Boyd.

We're not

the only ones struggling.

Let's go.

- Happy Birthday!

- Ta-da!


Happy birthday.

What a surprise.

What shall I do?

'Kay, make a wish.

- Make a wish?

- Let's do it.

One, two- you gonna help?


Tell us what you wished for.

No, then it won't come true.

Won't come true.

It's true. Give her the gift.

Is this for me?

It's when we went

to the lake.



Billy, I love it.

What's that?

That's the tunnel,

and that's Dad

doing his headstands.

Oh, it is.

Hey, come on. Open it up.

You like it?

Eddie, we can't...

I had nothing to do with it.

The kids bought it.

Don't you like it?

I love it, sweetie,

but we can't.

I'm gonna return this.


Hey, you're not returning it.

I got it on credit.

Don't worry about it.

- Credit?

- Try it on.

Yeah, try it on.

At least for tonight.

There you go.

It's beautiful.


It's so pretty, Mommy.

I love pink.

Well, sweetie, I'm just

gonna take it off for now,

because I don't want to get

birthday cake all over it.

But thank you.

But there is still

one more gift.

There is?

You're spoiling me.

Did you make this?

You made this?

Carolyn and I.


This is when your father played

the count of Monte Cristo.

A subtitle made possible by R3V0LV3R.

Hey, how are ya?

I know this is

a little strange, but...

Look, don't worry about it.

How you want to do this?

Soldier style?

All right.

Let's go. Here we go.


Where you headed?

Uh, just to Morse Street.



So where did this happen?


Thanks, man.


Hey, you got a smoke?



Here you go.

Need a light?


Here you go.

Better be goin'.

Hello, how are you?

Thank you.

I'm cold.

Me too.

We'll be home soon, okay?

Thank you.

I'll see you next week.


Now, how were

Mr. and Mrs. Got-Lots?


They're not worried

about the bank

taking their house, so...

Can I help you?

Yes. Hi, how are you?

Hi, I'd like to speak

to Mr. Greene, please.

Oh, he's not here. I'm sorry.

- Are you an actor?

- Yes.

Well, no. I'm not.

But that's what I'd like

to speak to Mr. Greene about,

about getting some movie work.

Oh, great. Your name?

Uh, Edwin Alonzo Boyd.


Yes, Alonzo. A-L-O-N-Zed-O.


Performances, shows?

Something we might have seen?
