[ Gate Squeaks ]

Hey, come on.

[ Gate Squeaks, Clangs ]

[ Chattering ]

Hey! How you doing?

Hey, how you doing? That...

That's... That's my dog, man.

I lost him, like, a few...

couple weeks ago.

[ Man ]

I found him two months ago.

He's not your dog. Look, I'm telling

you, you had him for two months.

You said you found him.

Ye... I'm the owner

that lost him.

You don't just put a little

dog out into the street.

I ain't... I was afraid he was

gonna run into the traffic.

I ain't put him in the street.

I left him on my stoop,

in the confines of my property.

Where did you find him?

Right over there.

Right over where?

At... At my house.

You found him, right?

Yeah. Exactly. I lost him.

I found him, put up signs

up and down the street.

I knocked on doors.

So why... [ Chuckles ] Why didn't

I hear you knock on my door?

I've been looking for him

for how long now?

I paid $250 for this dog.

You can't pay $250

for a pit bull.

You can't tell me what I can pay and

what I can't pay. In Brooklyn there's...

a thousand pit bulls running... If I wanted to

right now, I'd just take the dog from you.

That's what I used to do.

When I was young... I was 16 years

old, I see something I want...

You got my dog. He's mine.

No conversation.

I wouldn't have none

of this dialogue with you.

It's not...

It's not like that, okay?

Look... Okay, look... It's not

like that now. I've changed.

You put up signs. You did whatever you

had to do. You knocked on doors.

Now I'm here.

This is my dog.

You put up signs to find the

rightful owner. Here I am.

His name is Prince.

His name's William.

Why didn't you put up signs?

Hey, come here. 'Cause

it's something I don't do.

Where I'm from,

we don't put up no signs.

"We don't do that." Who's we? Look, we

are from two different worlds, dog.

Tell me.

I'm from where people get...

shot on a regular basis,

and it's nothing.

That's what I'm telling you.

I want my dog.

What would I...

The thing is

that I love this dog.

I love him too, man.

There's no way

I could keep this dog?

You either give me the money

I paid for him,

or you giving me my dog back.


It's plain and simple.

So if I...

If I give you $250?

If you give me the $250

right now, he's yours.

So when am I gonna

get my money?

I don't know, I'll give you...

I'll go get money in the morning.

[ Man #2 ] All right.

I was expecting to come back to Prince

on the stoop exactly where I left him,

like many times

I've left him before.

But that's all right?

It's not all right, but I honestly

don't have a choice right now.

What's your name?



[ Machine Beeps ]

I understand that you were in a

car accident, right? I was, yeah.

Uh... I was really running late,

and it was pouring rain.

Um... I had pulled over

to a bus stop actually.

And I asked somebody

for directions.

They told me I was in

the complete wrong area.

So I was trying to make a

U-turn, trying to turn around.

So I was crossing over. I crossed

into the right lane of traffic,

and I was coming up like this, and I was

trying to turn into a turning lane.

Um... And when I turned into the lane, he

hit me on the passenger side, this way.

So it kind of caused the car to spin,

and I ran into a median wall...

and really kind of crushed the

whole front end of the car in.

And did you, uh,

wait for the police?

I did, yeah. It actually happened

right in front of a police station,

so I didn't have to wait real long.

[ Mutters ] All right.

Did you get a estimate for the

damage to your vehicle? I did.

They have to replace essentially the whole front

end of the car. It was something like $15,000.

Okay. I'm gonna ask you to get that to me.

Signed and stamped, please.

All right?


You know, I... I spent quite

a bit of time in Kenya.

That's great.

How was it?

It was amazing actually. It was

a really unique experience.

Okay. And where did you

have the accident?

It was in Queens. It was in Queens.

All right. All right. Queens.


the insurance company has a certain

dollar amount for your injuries.

We're making a left-hand turn, and all

of a sudden this big truck comes...

rearing around the corner

and hits us head-on.

The whole front of it

was smashed in,

and the wheel was, like, turned up.

[ Chuckles ]

It was a Honda Accord.

It was, like, '89.

I know, you imagine it still out there?

Oh, wow. Pretty old car.

You have any, uh,

pictures of the damage?

I have pictures, but I

didn't bring them with me.

Oh. Okay. I don't know. But I can

get them to you if you need them.

Don't worry about it.

I've seen a lot of accidents,

heard a lot about

different cases,

so... that's it.

Now, the insurance company has a certain

dollar amount for your injuries...

[ Typing ]

[ Buzzing ]

Baby boy.

What's up, man?

What's popping, baby?

All right, all right.

Looks good.

Six months?

I had to get out, man.


Word, dog.

What's up with you?

Chilling, man.

The hood miss you, boy.

Miss me? You already know.

Come on, man.

I wonder why.

Come on, man.

Every time they see me, they be

like, "Yo, where A at? Where A at?"

You know what I mean? So, I don't

know, you know what I mean?

So now I know.

Corporate life, corporate

world... treating you good?

I do all right.

All right.

I hear that, man.

But, yo, I need you

to do me a solid, man.

Keith Miller

Keith Ross Miller, (28 November 1919 – 11 October 2004) was an Australian test cricketer and a Royal Australian Air Force pilot during World War II. Miller is widely regarded as Australia's greatest ever all-rounder. Because of his ability, irreverent manner and good looks he was a crowd favourite. English journalist Ian Wooldridge called Miller "the golden boy" of cricket, leading to his being nicknamed "Nugget". He "was more than a cricketer ... he embodied the idea that there was more to life than cricket".A member of the record-breaking Invincibles, at the time of his retirement from Test cricket in 1956, Miller had the best statistics of any all-rounder in cricket history. He often batted high in the order, sometimes as high as number three. He was a powerful striker of the ball, and one straight six that he hit at the Sydney Cricket Ground was still rising when it hit the upper deck of the grandstand. Miller was famous for varying his bowling to bemuse batsmen: he made sparing use of slower deliveries and would often adjust his run-up, surprisingly bowling his fastest deliveries from a short run. He was also a fine fielder and an especially acrobatic catcher in the slips.Away from cricket, Miller was also a successful Australian rules footballer. He played for St Kilda and was selected to represent the Victorian state team. He played 50 games for St Kilda, for whom he kicked eight goals in one game against North Melbourne, during 1941.Miller's personality – love of the contest, rather than victory, and his larger-than-life rebelliousness and carousing – helped both shape and limit his cricketing career, as he espoused the opposite of the more puritanical values of Donald Bradman, his captain and later national selector. Neville Cardus referred to Miller as "the Australian in excelsis"; Daily Mail sportswriter Ian Wooldridge's response was "By God he was right". This status was reflected when Miller was made one of the ten inaugural members of the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame. more…
