Daddy, what's the greatest thing

you ever saw?

The greatest thing that I ever saw.

One time, when I was a little boy...

...I was playing with my slingshot,

and I saw this jaybird.

I don't know why, but I shot him.

You killed a birdie?

I didn't mean to.

I don't even know why I shot at him,

but I felt so bad.

Then I started praying to God

that he would come back.

And all of a sudden,

the jaybird woke up.

He just... He just flew away.

God saved him?

Yeah, I think so.

Hey, Katie.


Why does it always

have to be bedtime?

I'll race you inside.

December 18th.

Your last day.

No more parole.

I'm a free man.

It seems like so long ago.


You wanna celebrate?

You got problems. Issues, man.

Come on, today's a good day.

I'm celebrating something.

So no problems today

and definitely no issues.

Sorry to bust up your fantasy world,


...but our 5:
00 just took a nose-dive

into the Dallas river.

We lost a thousand cases.

- All right, call in a four-shift.

- Okay.

Have them pull a swing. I want another

truck loaded and off by 11.

All right?


- Did you hear about the 5:00?

- Yeah.

Hell, if it ain't always something,


We'll make up for it by tomorrow.

How's the driver?

Broken leg.

Passerby pulled him out.

Who says

there's no more heroes, huh?

How's your little girl?

She's good. She's an angel.

Love every moment.

It kills you when they leave.

I'll call the driver's wife.

- Ben.

- Yeah.

You're doing a great job.


I can schedule the classes

around Katie's school.

And if I score over 80 on the test,

RealTops guarantees me a job.

How much is the class?

It's $ 1100.

This could be really good for us.

I can make money selling homes.

Enough that we can move out

of the city, on a lake.

- But Dallas isn't that bad, come on.

- I know.

There's a RealTops office

in Marietta.

When that brewery opens...

But they haven't offered me

the job yet.

Yeah, but they will.

Danny trusts you.

He'll want you running that place.

You really wanna live

in the country, huh?

lt'd be nice to look out the window and

see something other than concrete.

I like the country too.

- Why, you mother... You mother...

- Watch your mouth.

You know how Dad felt about cussing.

- They let you out early?

- They can't keep you forever.

Not on burglary, anyway.

- Good to see you, big brother.

- It's good to see you, okay?

Hey, Lisa.

- It's good to see you.

- Yeah.

Good to see you too.

Look at you.

Prettiest little girl on planet Earth.

- Katie, this is your uncle Ricky.

- I've seen your picture.

That's funny, that's really funny...

...because I got a picture of you

in my wallet.

How long are you in town for?

I don't know.

I gotta get her to bed.

- I love you, baby.

- Hey, it's good to see you. It's...


I'm sorry I couldn't come visit you.

Florida's a long drive.

And jail ain't a place

for your little angel.

She's beautiful, Ben.

Hey, Ricky,

there's blankets in the closet.

Thanks, but I got a room.

I didn't wanna impose.

All right, I'm going to bed.

You boys

don't drink yourself stupid.

Good night.

How's Marilyn?

She's not a part of my life anymore.

I got something.

I got something good.


Ones like the military uses.

The internals, wiring and switches...

...all custom-made,

lined with a common conductor.


I'm not talking gold bars.

I'm talking something so low-profile,

a rent-a-cop watches the place.

Dust. Gold dust.


The lab stocks 30 pounds of it.

You can carry that out

with a knapsack.

All I need is a dialer.

John Glenn

Colonel John Herschel Glenn Jr. (July 18, 1921 – December 8, 2016) was a United States Marine Corps aviator, engineer, astronaut, and United States Senator from Ohio. In 1962, he became the first American to orbit the Earth, circling it three times. Before joining NASA, Glenn was a distinguished fighter pilot in World War II, China and Korea. He shot down three MiG-15 aircraft, and was awarded six Distinguished Flying Crosses and eighteen Air Medals. In 1957, he made the first supersonic transcontinental flight across the United States. His on-board camera took the first continuous, panoramic photograph of the United States. He was one of the Mercury Seven, military test pilots selected in 1959 by NASA as the United States' first astronauts. On February 20, 1962, Glenn flew the Friendship 7 mission, becoming the first American to orbit the Earth, and the fifth person and third American in space. He received the NASA Distinguished Service Medal in 1962 and the Congressional Space Medal of Honor in 1978, was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1990, and was the last surviving member of the Mercury Seven. Glenn resigned from NASA in January 1964. He planned to run for a U.S. Senate seat from Ohio, but an injury in February 1964 forced his withdrawal. He retired from the Marine Corps the following year. He lost a close primary election in 1970. A member of the Democratic Party, Glenn first won election to the Senate in 1974 and served for 24 years until January 1999. In 1998, while still a sitting Senator, Glenn became the oldest person to fly in space as a crew member of the Discovery space shuttle and the only person to fly in both the Mercury and Space Shuttle programs. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012. more…
