YOUNG MAN:
I'm starting my own paper.

I'll show you how it works.

[]

Go faster!

Whoo!

(laughing)

MAN:
I'll get a job.

We'll buy a house.

Couple of kids.

Don't worry.

I got it all worked out.

MAN 2:

Ladies and gentlemen,

please welcome

the newest and youngest

addition to the Tribune team,

Lee Strobel.

(muffled cheers)

It is my distinct pleasure

to honor one of our own

for his nationally acclaimed

Ford Pinto investigative series.

Lee, your work has given justice

to families across the country

and peeled back

a corporate cover-up.

So I present you with

the Len H. Small Memorial Award

for community service

journalism.

And congratulations

on your promotion

- to Legal Affairs editor!

- (cheering, applause)

LEE:

Thank you, Mr. Cook,

for the award,

for the promotion.

Um... (clears throat)

mostly for the promotion.

- Uh... (chuckles)

- You're welcome.

The only way to truth

is through facts.

Facts are our greatest weapon

against superstition,

against ignorance

and against tyranny.

Now, I learned those words

from my mentor,

- Mr. Ray Nelson, everybody.

- Thank you.

Let's let him hear it, huh?

Huh? His ego needs it.

Bring it on.

- That's enough.

- (light laughter)

LEE:

Now, you all know Ray.

He's a legend in the business.

But, to me, Ray, you've been

more like a father, so...

thank you.

- Thank you. Thank you, son.

- (light laughter)

Most importantly, uh,

I owe this honor

to my beautiful and very patient

and very pregnant wife, uh...

and to my favorite

little lady, Alison.

I love you both more

than you'll ever know.

- GROUP:
Aw...

- Yes, sweetie?

ALISON (whispering):

Now can we eat?

(Lee laughs)

- "Now can we eat, Daddy?"

- GROUP:
Yes!

- Yes!

- I'll drink to that.

- MAN:
Cheers!

- Thank you.

- LEE:
What's next?

- LESLIE:
I got "pasta."

LEE:

Ooh. Well, then.

Of course, she finds the

biggest word on here, right?

"Asparagus"?

Wow, that is a big word.

Not for a girl

who's lost a tooth.

- Oh, okay.

- LEE:
Oh, big girl.

LESLIE:

I'm still impressed.

A big girl who didn't

eat her dinner.

- I'm full.

- LESLIE:
You're full?

- LEE:
ls that right?

- Yeah.

LESLIE:

Are you gonna tell me

you're hungry when we get home?

All right,

I'm gonna give you dessert

if you eat one more noodle.

- That was easy.

- See?

Just have to bribe her

a little bit.

- Chew it up.

- LESLIE:
Mm-hmm.

(makes slurping sound)

We done?

- Show me done. -There's still

spaghetti in there.

- LESLIE:
Swallow that.

- (laughing)

LEE:

Take this. Go.

- (laughing)

- LESLIE:
Good work.

LESLIE:
You know, I'm feeling

pretty good about myself.

- LEE:
Yeah?

- LESLIE:
Mm-hmm.

LEE:

How is that?

I am married

to a published author.

(Lee chuckles)

That's very impressive.

- Mm-hmm. Isn't it?

- Mm-hmm.

I'm proud of you.

- Thank you.

- Mm-hmm.

- I love you.

- I love you.

You and only you.

- LEE:
Mm-hmm?

- LESLIE:
Sweetie?

Ali, what is it, baby?

- Are you choking?

- I think she's choking.

- Ali, come on, cough.

- Hey, sweetie,

just breathe for Mommy, okay?

- Ali? Please, Lee. -Everybody,

please, just give her...

- give her some space.

- Lee, do something, Lee.

- LESLIE:
Ali, I'm right here.

Okay, -Come on, honey, come on.

- Baby, it's gonna be okay.

- Can somebody help us, please?!

- Call an ambulance!

- (indistinct chatter)

- It's okay, baby. I'm right here.

- Look at Daddy, okay?

Okay, breathe for me.

You're gonna be all right.

(stammers) Baby, I'm

right here. I don't know...

I don't know what...

I don't know what to...

- I love you, sweetheart. Just...
