05:15,581 -- 00:05:17,344

Luis.

13

00:
05:18,151 -- 00:05:19,675

Wake up!

14

00:
05:40,373 -- 00:05:42,898

Ap, I need some money.

15

00:
05:42,975 -- 00:05:44,840

Again? Why?

16

00:
05:45,878 -- 00:05:48,403

I need to buy some stuff for school.

17

00:
05:49,082 -- 00:05:51,380

Since when do you go to school?

18

00:
05:51,884 -- 00:05:53,442

Every day.

19

00:
05:54,987 -- 00:05:56,147

Right.

20

00:
05:57,757 -- 00:06:00,089

How many days have you missed this year?

21

00:
06:00,159 -- 00:06:02,992

I don't know, 18, 19.

22

00:
06:05,832 -- 00:06:09,666

I don't want you to miss school no more.

School's important.

23

00:
06:09,936 -- 00:06:11,233

It's everything.

24

00:
06:11,304 -- 00:06:12,293

S, Professor?

25

00:
06:13,206 -- 00:06:14,696

S, Professor.

26

00:
06:15,541 -- 00:06:16,667

You wanna end up like me?

27

00:
06:17,110 -- 00:06:18,168

No.

28

00:
06:19,812 -- 00:06:22,372

Hey, so can I have the money or what?

29

00:
06:22,982 -- 00:06:25,280

You want money? Come work.

30

00:
06:26,219 -- 00:06:27,914

You used to come with me on Saturdays.

31

00:
06:28,221 -- 00:06:30,246

Well, I had to stop 'cause of soccer.

32

00:
06:30,323 -- 00:06:32,018

You haven't played football in years.

33

00:
06:32,759 -- 00:06:35,057

Well, that's because

that league sucked, man.

34

00:
06:35,128 -- 00:06:38,723

If you need money in this world, Luis,

necesitas trabajar.

35

00:
06:39,532 -- 00:06:41,363

You need to work.

36

00:
06:42,535 -- 00:06:43,866

Get yourself an education.

37

00:
06:43,936 -- 00:06:48,066

You know what? I'm gonna jack an old lady

in the street, all right? I don't care.

38

00:
06:51,778 -- 00:06:54,110

That's not funny.

39

00:
06:54,180 -- 00:06:55,943

Don't even say that.

40

00:
06:56,816 -- 00:06:58,943

You better go to school now.

41

00:
07:00,486 -- 00:07:01,646

Damn!

42

00:
07:05,725 -- 00:07:08,091

Listen, buddy.

43

00:
07:08,461 -- 00:07:10,929

You ain't just buyin' a truck, or a business.

44

00:
07:11,164 -- 00:07:13,689

What you're buyin' is the American Dream.

45

00:
07:14,000 -- 00:07:15,900

I ain't buyin' your truck.

46

00:
07:16,135 -- 00:07:21,732

Fine. If you don't buy her,

someone else will.

47

00:
07:22,208 -- 00:07:27,077

And if I sell her to someone else,

then you're out of a job.

48

00:
07:27,513 -- 00:07:30,277

Back on that corner

where I found you six years ago.

49

00:
07:30,750 -- 00:07:33,583

Beggin' for work with all the other

desperate wetbacks.

50

00:
07:34,454 -- 00:07:37,719

Duckin' La Migra. Not knowing

where your next dollar's gonna come.

51

00:
07:39,625 -- 00:07:42,788

But you buy ol' girl from me,

you keep my tools...

52

00:
07:43,129 -- 00:07:45,256

You keep all my customers...

53

00:
07:45,498 -- 00:07:47,625

...You'll be your own boss.

54

00:
07:49,435 -- 00:07:50,732

Look at me.

55

00:
07:51,571 -- 00:07:55,701

I came here with nothing, but I'm

going home to my very own farm.

56

00:
07:56,742 -- 00:07:58,869
