You Can Count On Me
Why do they always put braces on teenage girls
at the exact moment when they're most
self-conscious about their appearance?
I don't know
I see him
Amy, would you tell the kids you'll be right back
And, shut the door and step outside...
talk to us for a minute
Be right back, you guys!
You're not supposed to go out, Amy
She's going to smoke a cigarette
Rudy, come on, I'm really late! Come on
How was school?
Why do you say that?
We're supposed to write a story
for English homework. But they didn't tell us
what it's supposed to be about
What do you mean?
I mean, they didn't tell us what it's supposed
to be about. They said do whatever you want
Well, what's wrong with that?
I don't know, I just think it's unstructured
Well I'm sure you'll think of something
If you can't, I'll help you
Okay, here... Don't forget your backpack
It's not a backpack, it's a knapsack
Then don't forget the knapsack
Hey, Give me a hug. Okay
Guess who's been asking for you?
Oh no, really? Is that his car?
Yeah, come in
Oh yeah, Brian
Brian, hi. I'm Samantha Ann Prescott
I'm the lending officer
Yeah, hi. Hi. How are you. Have a seat
I am so sorry I was late
Yeah, we missed you before...
I got held up...
Believe me, it's nothing I make a habit of
I'm sure it's not
Actually, would you get that door for me, please
So I always run out at 3:15 to meet him...
then run real quick over to the sitters house
to mind about it, so I was...
just hoping you'd feel the same way about it too
Well, Samantha, I realize that Scotsville...
is not exactly a major banking center
No, it's not
No, I know it's not
But it's kind of a personal challenge to me to see
what we can do to bring local service up to
the kinds of standards that we'd try to meet
if we were the biggest branch in the state
Now, that means I don't want anybody
running out at 3:15 or 3:30 or whenever
the bus happens to come in that day
So is there anybody else who can
pick up your son after school?
Does your husband work in the area?
Ahh, no. Rudy Sr. Isn't on the scene
so to speak
Well, I can give you a few days
to make some other arrangements. But...
I understand what you're saying
and I think it's great. I do
Because there's a lot of things around here
that could use some attention. Believe me
But I've been meeting this bus
every day for 3 years now
And it really does, it takes 15 minutes
And if I take the time out of my lunch hour...
Well, I'd prefer if you would
make some other arrangements, Okay?
I'll do my best
So, how old's your son?
That's a terrific age
You got a letter from Uncle Terry
What room is he going to stay in?
He can stay in the little room
You know what, he's not going to live here
He's only coming here, to stay for a little while
And it's okay if you don't remember
you were only six the last time he was here
But I think it'll be nice
if you got a chance to know each other
Don't you think?
if I put on some music?
Did you think of a story?
What's it about?
What... What about your father?
It's just a made-up story about him
Can I read it when you're done?
It's not very good
Don't say that
Anyway, Bob, it's kind of this adventure story
Rudy's father is a secret agent...
or something, working for the government
And it made me feel kinda weird. Because
I've never said much to him about Rudy Sr
Because I don't know what to sayRate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
