I'll be there real soon, baby

I love you, too

Don't spit in the car, please

Can you drive any faster, dumb ass?

What if my baby goes

to another customer?

I said don't spit in the car

What are you gonna do

about it, dumb ass?

That's one foul mouth you got there

Why don't you just run to your 'baby'?

Dumb ass!

What the f***?

I'm sorry,

I meant to say 'bald ass'

Damn, you look good

Wet or dry


You little sh*t!

What time is it?


Why didn't you wake me up?

Playing spy again?

Aren't you a little too old for that?

If you're ashamed of living here,

leave early

There are more kids out earlier

Buyout wouldn't know that

You never finished school

If you get kicked out,

we split living expenses 50/50

You and that attitude

Doesn't it ever tire you out?

If the milk has gone bad,

throw it away

Attack of Steel Erection!

What! What?

Perfectly normal for a healthy man

It gets the blood flowing

It's not like I watch it all the time

Why was this on anyway?

Next time I catch you,

I won't just delete the files


Damn you!

It was my finest collection

Totally lost your cool

That flying kick!

That's what I'm talking about

I mean... What's gotten into you?

You were top of the class until ninth grade

Smart enough to join Mensa

I was in the fight

but I didn't start it

It's wrong for a student

to be in a fight

And it's okay for a teacher

to spy on his students?

What... What do you mean?

My phone!


All done. Good to go

Oh no, I left the keys inside

One moment

Wow! Thank you

There is nothing he can't unlock

He can even unlock handcuffs

From burglary to car theft

You name it, he's done it

Thank you

Have a good day, ma'am


I appreciate your getting me this job and all

but I've been clean for years now

Transparent as glass

Glass is easy to break

Not if it's reinforced glass

I pray for you every day, you know

Even after you got

let go as a minister?

Let go? Me?

I've been in and out of jail

because God sent me there

Now He wants me to take a break

Why don't you take that break at home?

Put out the cigarette

Fire hazard!

For crying out loud!

Did you find a new place?

Not easy with

what I have in the bank

I'm only trying to get out of the basement

but the prices are going through the roof

How is your boy doing these days?

He doesn't visit me anymore

I have no idea

I'm breaking my back for him

I think I got shorter by almost an inch


Mr. Cha, you need to come in

It's about your son

I can't go

But this is a serious matter

Just follow the school policy

Pardon me?

It's his life, as far

as I'm concerned

But, Mr. Cha...

The boy is a blessing

He's a different breed from you

Blessing, my ass!

Yeah, right

He would never hurt

someone for no reason

Pastor, it's not the first

time this happened

Look at what he's done to my son

Last time, he smacked his right side

This time, his left

My boy is not a goddamn punching bag


He'll be a senior next year

His father ought to take more interest

Of course

You know

I don't blame the boy

It all comes down to

how he was raised

Look at all that hatred in his eyes

I'm outta here

Aren't you a tough guy?

Why did you provoke him?

His father is no show again?

He had this thing he couldn't get out of

So, I came in his place

I've got no business with you, Pastor

I'm gonna settle this once and for all


Where the hell are you?

Smart phones cost a fortune these days

Of course

Almost a grand a pop

I'm telling you as a fellow parent

As a father to a father

That's no way to raise a kid
