Henry used to talk of people.

How society would never

learn to live without.

The love.

And he used to say

that we could be a family.

But not without the love.

The love.

Then he went.

To nowhere I know.

The picture-perfect memories.

They don't mean nothing

till you die.

I pick up the phone

but nobody's home.

Still I try.

And, honey,

I can't pay the bills...

Ohh.

Hey.

Here you go.

Why do I have to do it?

It's called comparative

advantage, B.B.

We each do

what we're good at,

and everyone's happy.

You're good at school:

I'm good at taking care of you.

Who beat the crap out of the kid

who peed on your shoes?

That was in the third grade.

Who made it okay for you

to eat nothing but bread

when we go out?

Come on, we're a team.

What are you doing?

- Writing.

- Can I read it?

No.

Sure. If aliens abduct me.

Hey.

I'm around the corner.

What should I tell the 'rents?

Kaplan.

Every Jewish parent's

idea of paradise.

Kaplan's over.

Way to rub It In, Mr. Ivy.

No wonder your parents

think you're perfect.

I'm not?

I wish I were retarded.

Hold on.

What, Nick?

I wish I was retarded.

Then I wouldn't have to

do your stupid schoolwork.

You mean, you wish you were

mentally challenged.

So challenge yourself.

I'm going to study group.

Okay.

Chaz!

Where are you going?

Study group.

I'm not an idiot.

It's a usual Friday night thing.

Just gonna hang out

with some friends,

play video games.

Can I come?

Sorry, buddy.

Got to have social skills.

I'll join you guys later.

Sorry.

Be a man, Nick, come on.

You could've gone.

I've got something

better to do.

Come on, let's go.

Come on.

Come on,

that's all you got?

Your music is distracting me.

You have no taste.

This music is dope.

Come on. Here, boy.

That's all right.

You almost made it.

And he shoots.

And... Whoo!

I gotta go.

When... when do I get to come?

One day. I promise.

So for your good.

You'd better go.

Some things never change...

Try and stay in the lane!

Hey, that's much better!

- Walt, walt!

- I'll go out and get the car.

Please, just walt.

No, come on!

What did they say?

They didn't say anything.

He's in the hospital.

Let's just go, come on.

And though it is impossible

not to feel distraught,

even angry,

at this seemingly

senseless loss,

God has also given

a healing gift

to those of us

who are believers...

the knowledge that

what others call death

is not actually an ending,

but a new beginning.

This young man,

who we all loved so much

whom we will all miss

so terribly...

Chaz has begun the next stage

in his amazing journey

with a new life

and a new flesh...

more perfect than anything

we can even imagine.

Let us be inspired

by the life of Chaz Young,

to make our own lives

a testament to your glory.

He was with us.

We enjoyed his company,

basked in his spirit.

And now he's gone from us

in the flesh,

but his memory will remain

with us forever.

Let us all strive

to live up to that memory,

to live up to the gift

which you have given us

by letting us know

this remarkable young man.

In Jesus name, we pray.

Amen.

Well, I know Chaz

would never want us

to sit around and be boring.

You know, he'd want us

to have fun.

Like old times, man.

Hey, man, you want

a ride or something?

Poor kid.

He wanted to come with us.

If he wants to come,

he can ask.

All right, man, see you.

Maria?

Maria?

Maria?! I need your help!

Mom.

Oh, B.B., you're home.

Where's his stuff?

I threw it out.

B. B... Shh. B.B.!

Oh!

B.B.!

Oh!

Come on!

Nick!

Come on!

B.B.

B.B., please stop.

Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock,

tick-tock, tick-tock...

Three sessions so far,

and the clock's still ticking.

We used to talk, remember?

Don't skip the epigraph.

It's my favorite part.

"Verily, verily,

I say unto you,

"Except a corn of wheat

fall into the ground and die,

"it abideth alone:

But if it die,

it bringeth forth much fruit '

Gospel according

to St. John, 12:
24.

It's about rebirth.

Take it home.

We can talk about

the book next week.

Irene...

Irene?

Honey.

You fell asleep, huh?

It's all right.

Let's go to bed.

It's okay.

I got you.

Hello, this is the Young residence.

We're not at home right now.

Please leave a message.

See you in a bit.

All right.

See you after practice.

Okay, bye.

Hey, Nick!

What are you

still doing here, man?

Need a ride home?

I am not ashamed.

Of the Gospel of Christ.

I believe his name.

Brings healing in life.

These are the words of.

Dear mother...

Oh.

Hey, Mrs. Young.

I was going to have

his father pick him up.

No, it's okay.

- Okay, thanks.

- No problem.

See you, Nick.

Your meaning and worth.

These are the words of.

My father.

Now gone.

What?

Wait!

I'll see you in a few.

Got cheer leading practice?

Debate team.

Okay. How boring.

Mmm. All right, I gotta go.

- Fine!

- Fine.

- I'll miss you.

- I'll miss you, too, baby.

Bye.

What's up, Nick?

Wanna hang out with us tonight?

That's what Chaz did

every Friday.

I can clear it by your mom,

if you want to go,

drop you off afterwards, too.

I used to give Chaz

rides all the time.

Just wish I had given

him a ride that day

instead of, um...

Never mind.

Here, I'll call your mom.

Hello?

Hey, Mrs. Young.

It's Doug.

Is it okay if I bring Nick

to Randy's tonight?

Um, I'm not sure...

Everything's gonna be fine.

It's just a bunch of us...
