Do you know what would be cool?

0:00:400:00:42

What?

0:00:430:00:45

Climb all the way to the top and across the catwalk.

0:00:460:00:51

I could do it.

0:00:530:00:54

Then do it.

0:00:540:00:56

I dare you.

0:00:560:00:58

EXHALES

0:01:030:01:05

SCREAMS

0:01:120:01:13

METAL CREAKS

0:01:180:01:20

PANTS

0:01:200:01:22

Get Wayne!

0:01:240:01:26

I'm going to die.

0:01:390:01:42

My mom's going to kill me if I die.

0:01:420:01:44

You're not going to die. I'll get you down.

0:01:440:01:47

How?

0:01:470:01:49

What were you doing climbing up here?

0:01:490:01:51

Cal dared me!

0:01:510:01:52

I did not! I told him he was too little.

0:01:520:01:56

I'm not too little!

0:01:560:01:58

Catwalk broke.

0:01:580:01:59

You do whatever my little brother says?

0:01:590:02:01

Here. Grab on.

0:02:010:02:03

GRUNTS

0:02:050:02:06

There you go. Yeah.

0:02:060:02:09

OK, then. All right.

0:02:090:02:12

Help!

0:02:120:02:14

I've got you.

0:02:140:02:16

-There we go.

-CAL:

-All right, Wayne!

0:02:160:02:20

You've got to be smarter now that I'm leaving.

0:02:240:02:27

When are you coming back?

0:02:290:02:31

They don't tell you.

0:02:310:02:33

Come on. I'll buy you a snow cone.

0:02:360:02:38

TOBY: 'Even though Wayne is technically Cal's brother,

0:02:390:02:41

'he's totally like a big brother to me,

0:02:410:02:43

'so starting here on the silo makes sense.

0:02:430:02:46

'See, that day was not only the first time he was leaving,

0:02:460:02:49

'but also the last time anything in my life was ever normal.'

0:02:490:02:53

Stay close.

0:02:530:02:54

'Up till then, every day was fun,

0:02:540:02:57

'and trouble was never anything Wayne and a snow cone couldn't fix.'

0:02:570:03:00

'But Wayne had to go join the army.

0:03:030:03:05

'As the summer went on, I realised that was only the beginning.'

0:03:050:03:08

Mom, where did you get those pants?

0:03:110:03:14

I ordered them online. They look killer, don't they?

0:03:140:03:18

They look uncomfortable.

0:03:180:03:19

Comfort and looking good aren't exactly two peas in a pod, honey.

0:03:190:03:25

-SIGHS

-But I feel good.

0:03:250:03:27

Which is why I'm going to win the Hearts of Country Music Television.

0:03:270:03:30

'Mom actually works as a waitress,

0:03:300:03:32

'but her dream is to be a singer, like a Dixie Chick or Shania Twain.'

0:03:320:03:36

-What is it now?

-Don't worry. I've about got it.

0:03:360:03:40

I cannot miss my flight.

0:03:400:03:42

I've got it, honey.

0:03:420:03:43

'My dad works as a mailman, but he really likes worms.

0:03:430:03:47

'I'm serious. He raises worms for fertiliser and fish bait.'

0:03:470:03:50

I got you something.

0:03:500:03:51

Otto, no.

0:03:510:03:53

It's to keep your throat warm before you sing.

0:03:550:03:58

So, anyway, 12 years ago, they got together and made me.

0:03:590:04:02

Thanks. Be careful with it. I don't need engine grease on my neck.

0:04:020:04:06

Toby, come and hug me.

0:04:090:04:11

Ohhh!

0:04:110:04:14

Goodbye, baby. M-wah!

0:04:140:04:17

You and your dad and these glasses.

0:04:180:04:21

You'll look better in contacts.

0:04:210:04:23

You think so?

0:04:230:04:26

I know so.

0:04:260:04:27

Be back by four. Give my worms a squirt, OK?

0:04:280:04:32

I love you.

0:04:320:04:34

I love you too.

0:04:340:04:36

Don't be scared.

0:04:360:04:37

'I knew I'd miss my mom, but I had no idea of the trouble headed my way.

0:04:380:04:43

'And no idea that rolling into town

0:04:430:04:45

'was the last person I'd ever expect to change my life.'

0:04:450:04:49

-Oh! Oh!

-TYRES SCREECH

0:05:000:05:03

Toby!

0:05:080:05:10

-Toby!

-I'm in the worm shed!

0:05:120:05:14

Didn't you hear?

0:05:140:05:16

-Hear what?

-Come on. Quick.

0:05:160:05:19

Honey. Honey, look.

0:05:190:05:22

Come on!

0:05:370:05:39

Wait up!

0:05:390:05:41

Look.

0:05:460:05:47

TINNY CARNIVAL MUSIC PLAYS

0:06:000:06:02

-You're not going in there, are you?

-Hi, Kate.

0:06:070:06:09

Of course we are. What are you going to do?

0:06:090:06:11

Stay out here and take stupid pictures?

0:06:110:06:13

-Has your mom left for Nashville yet?

-She's on her way.

0:06:150:06:17

If she wins, she'll get to make a record, right?

0:06:170:06:19

Yeah. That's what they say.

0:06:190:06:21

Nice talking to you guys too!

0:06:230:06:25

Oooh - Scarlet.

0:06:280:06:29

Man, she wants you!

0:06:320:06:34

Scarlet.

0:06:340:06:36

Hey, Toby!

0:06:390:06:40

-Could y'all do me a favour?

-Sure.

0:06:400:06:43

Take Tara in for me.

0:06:430:06:46

I've got to get home.

0:06:460:06:48

Mom's out, so Juan's dropping by.

0:06:480:06:51

-MAN:

-It's showtime, folks.

0:06:550:06:56

Welcome, fellow Texans.

0:06:580:07:01

Your lovely town may be too remote for the circus to visit,

0:07:010:07:03

but not for us.

0:07:030:07:05

My name is Paulie Rankin - known in the business as "the Wizard".

0:07:050:07:10

It's time now to enter the domain of Zachary Beaver -

0:07:100:07:12

possibly the fattest boy in the world.

0:07:120:07:15

443 pounds.

0:07:150:07:17

Now, you don't have to rush, but no dawdling, please.

0:07:170:07:20

In the tradition, I'll be happy to take your questions.

0:07:200:07:23

"And your money." Oh, by the way - could you lend me the five bucks?

0:07:230:07:27

Add it to your tab. LAUGHS SARCASTICALLY

0:07:280:07:31

-Is that another letter from Wayne?

-Oh, yeah.

0:07:310:07:35

-Here.

-Sweet.

0:07:350:07:37

It's so weird he can't e-mail when he's on a mission.

0:07:390:07:42

-Ever write him back yet?

-Nah, not yet.

0:07:420:07:46

Man, do you think Intelligence checked this to see what he wrote?

0:07:460:07:49

Intelligence? Doesn't matter.

0:07:490:07:51

I mean, he sails halfway around the world,

0:07:510:07:53

and then he writes back about Excitement Central here

0:07:530:07:55

like it's the greatest place on Earth.

0:07:550:07:57

-Makes you think, don't it?

-It certainly does.

0:07:580:08:01

-It certainly does.

-Here. And her.

0:08:010:08:04

Hey, she don't got to go to the bathroom, does she?

0:08:040:08:06

Do you? OK.

0:08:060:08:08

She'd better not, or else.

0:08:080:08:10

How much do you eat?

0:08:290:08:31

As much as I can.

0:08:310:08:33

How old are you?

0:08:330:08:34

Old enough.

0:08:340:08:36

-Where do you go to school?

-You're looking at it.

0:08:360:08:39

What's in this gold box?

0:08:480:08:50

URINATES

0:08:500:08:52

Do I smell pee?

0:08:520:08:54

-Gee!

-Did that kid just pee in here?!

0:08:540:08:57

-BELLOWS:

-Get her out of here!

0:08:570:08:59

Here. Home. Go change!

0:09:010:09:03

He was so fat!

0:09:030:09:06

-Hey, man. I didn't know you babysat.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:09:060:09:10

Oh, my God!

0:09:210:09:23

Come on! Your mom never lets me cook.

0:09:230:09:26

I'm going all-out while I can.

0:09:260:09:29

Where's that s... Oh, here.

0:09:290:09:31

This came for you.

0:09:310:09:32

What's this?

0:09:340:09:35

I think it's the contact lenses your mother ordered for you.

0:09:350:09:39

You hungry?

0:09:400:09:42

It's banwich flambe.

0:09:430:09:45

BURPS

0:09:460:09:47

-ZACHARY:

-One more.

-PAULIE:

-Give it a rest.

0:09:470:09:49

-One more. Come on!

-No.

0:09:490:09:52

Stupid loser.

0:09:520:09:53

Can I just come out here and have a smoke?

0:09:530:09:55

-One more!

-No more. Forget it. No more Boggle.

0:09:550:09:59

Well, what else do you want to play?

0:09:590:10:01

Paulie, come on!

0:10:010:10:03

Hey, Paulie!

0:10:030:10:04

Come back! Come on! Paulie!

0:10:040:10:08

-Hi.

-Hey.

0:10:080:10:09

Thanks for coming through. What have we got here?

0:10:090:10:11

-SPEAKS INDISTINCTLY:

-..And some jerky, and bread, of course.

0:10:110:10:15

-CAL:

-You won't be able to get your licence if you can't learn to park.

0:10:170:10:20

-KATE:

-Oh, be quiet!

0:10:200:10:22

-Arggh!

-PRETENDS TO GAG

0:10:230:10:25

-She hit me.

-PRETENDS TO GAG

0:10:250:10:28

Oh, man!

0:10:290:10:30

Cal.

0:10:310:10:33

Cal!

0:10:330:10:35

Will you boys come here a minute?

0:10:350:10:37

You know, ladybugs are coming in a few days,

0:10:530:10:55

and we're going to need some help, with Wayne gone.

0:10:550:10:58

-From both of you. All right?

-Sure, Mom.

0:10:580:11:01

We need them for the cotton crop. They're nature's pesticide.

0:11:010:11:04

TYRES SCREECH

0:11:040:11:06

Kate!

0:11:060:11:08

Why don't you boys give her some space?

0:11:080:11:10

Go away. Now.

0:11:100:11:12

-What do you want to do?

-I don't know.

0:11:140:11:17

-What do YOU want to do?

-I don't know.

0:11:170:11:19

There's nothing TO do.

0:11:190:11:21

You think he's still there?

0:11:340:11:36

I mean, you know, the fat kid?

0:11:360:11:38

Nah. It's too hot. He'd melt.

0:11:380:11:40

You really think he weighs 443 pounds?

0:11:410:11:43

I don't know. That's what they said.

0:11:430:11:45

How do you think they weigh him? Most scales don't even go that high.

0:11:450:11:49

CHUCKLES Maybe at the meat market.

0:11:490:11:51

Oh, how do you think he goes to the bathroom?

0:11:510:11:53

-Nasty!

-You're such a little girl!

0:11:530:11:56

-LAUGHS

-You are.

0:11:560:11:59

I'm hungry. Come on. Let's go eat.

0:11:590:12:01

Do you think it's safe to go in here without your mom working?

0:12:060:12:09

Yeah.

0:12:090:12:11

Hi, Ferris. FLIES BUZZ

0:12:180:12:20

-Is your mom back yet?

-She just left yesterday.

0:12:200:12:24

Well, tell her to hurry back.

0:12:240:12:26

She's the people person around here, you know?

0:12:260:12:29

Why'd they leave the trailer?

0:12:290:12:31

They'll be back soon enough.

0:12:310:12:33

Well, how'd that fat kid fit in that old convertible?

0:12:330:12:35

And don't think I'm giving you any free meals like your mom does.

0:12:350:12:39

-Is that why you're here?

-Guess not.

0:12:390:12:41

-SOFTLY:

-That didn't take long.

0:12:460:12:47

Morning, Ferris, boys.

0:12:470:12:50

Levi. Miss Earline.

0:12:500:12:52

Ferris, about that business across the street -

0:12:520:12:55

I thought they'd have pulled out by now.

0:12:550:12:57

It's bad enough what happened yesterday,

0:12:570:12:59

but what in the world is that trashy tin can still doing here?

0:12:590:13:02

It is my lot, ma'am.

0:13:020:13:03

Well, they've been gone since early this morning.

0:13:030:13:06

You got any idea where they went?

0:13:060:13:08

He gave me money to feed the boy.

0:13:110:13:13

You mean that boy is still out there?

0:13:150:13:17

He said he'd just be overnight.

0:13:170:13:19

Sheriff, it's illegal to abandon a child in the state of Texas.

0:13:190:13:23

And immoral anywhere on God's good earth.

0:13:230:13:26

OK. What would you like me to do?

0:13:260:13:29

Well, there's an abandoned child, so call the Social Services Office.

0:13:290:13:33

Or I will.

0:13:330:13:34

It's so wrong. He could be on the toilet or something.

0:13:370:13:40

Stop being a baby.

0:13:400:13:42

Unbelievable!

0:13:460:13:48

Man, you've got to see this. Look at this! Look at...

0:13:480:13:51

Have you ever seen a cereal box that big?

0:13:550:13:58

-BELLOWS:

-What are you perverts looking at?!

0:14:010:14:03

If you don't get out of here, I'm calling the cops!

0:14:030:14:06

-CAL:

-This guy's a lot bigger than that fake in the trailer.

0:14:100:14:13

-Give him time.

-No way.

0:14:130:14:15

The man said he only weighed 443 pounds, right?

0:14:150:14:18

Well, I doubt that's even true. I mean, I want a refund.

0:14:180:14:21

Hey, guys.

0:14:210:14:23

-Heard from Mom today?

-Nah.

0:14:230:14:26

Cal, why don't you join us for dinner?

0:14:280:14:30

Oh, sur... Uh... Oh, no. Um, you know, I don't think I can.

0:14:300:14:34

Well, sure you can. I'll call your folks.

0:14:340:14:37

-WAYNE:

-"Dear Cal,

0:14:410:14:43

"hope summer vacation is treating you right.

0:14:430:14:45

"We've been on some pretty crazy missions over here,

0:14:450:14:48

"so I haven't had much decent to eat lately.

0:14:480:14:50

"Tomorrow I start R&R for two days,

0:14:500:14:52

"and I'm going to eat the biggest meal I can find.

0:14:520:14:54

"Twice.

0:14:540:14:56

"After that, more top-secret work I can't write about.

0:14:560:14:59

"You know how we'd all play war in the back yard

0:14:590:15:02

"with paint balls and water guns?

0:15:020:15:04

"Well, it's a whole other deal, what we're doing over here.

0:15:040:15:07

"I've seen some scary stuff,

0:15:070:15:09

"but I like to think we're making a dent.

0:15:090:15:12

"Plus I am getting paid.

0:15:120:15:14

"Mom sent me some organic fibre cookies, but it's hot here.

0:15:140:15:18

"Every day, it's snow-cone hot, as Wylie puts it.

0:15:180:15:21

"They're the best way on earth to beat the heat.

0:15:210:15:24

"I want one bad..."

0:15:240:15:26

Could I have the number of Social Services, please?

0:15:310:15:33

"I hope Mom's finally over me running off to the military.

0:15:330:15:36

"You know, if she gets on your case about anything,

0:15:360:15:39

"just tell her how pretty her roses are looking, and she'll calm down.

0:15:390:15:44

"Little brother, you've got to write me sometime.

0:15:440:15:46

"E-mail's iffy, but an actual letter will get to me eventually.

0:15:460:15:50

"Fill me in on what's up in town, how Billy is doing,

0:15:500:15:52

"what girls you're meeting, Kate's latest oddity -

0:15:520:15:56

"all of it.

0:15:560:15:58

"Be good. Wayne.

0:15:580:16:00

"PS. Tell your buddy Toby I said hi."

0:16:030:16:06

Maybe he's dead.

0:16:060:16:09

Maybe you should knock again.

0:16:090:16:11

I've got a better idea.

0:16:110:16:13

If he's asleep, this will wake him up.

0:16:140:16:17

GRUNTS

0:16:170:16:19

SIGHS Ha! You suck.

0:16:190:16:21

Think you're better? You try it.

0:16:210:16:24

-Here.

-No. We'll get in trouble.

0:16:240:16:26

-Oh, stop being a baby.

-I'm not a baby.

0:16:260:16:28

-You know a better word for it?

-You're the baby. You'll always be.

0:16:280:16:31

Cos you're the youngest in your family, and younger than me.

0:16:310:16:33

-Oh, that doesn't mean anything.

-Three months!

0:16:330:16:35

-No. That doesn't mean anything.

-Three months and five days exactly.

0:16:350:16:38

Oh! We missed him!

0:16:380:16:41

-BOY:

-Fat boy, come out again.

-Oh, no. Look!

0:16:410:16:43

GASPS Come on. We've got to stop them.

0:16:450:16:48

-And fire!

-GRUNTS

-Oh, my God!

-We've got to get out of here!

0:17:050:17:07

Go, go, go, go, go!

0:17:070:17:09

Come on.

0:17:330:17:35

Man, did you notice you lost something yesterday?

0:17:380:17:40

-It's in my room. I'll go get it.

-Hey, I didn't lose anything.

0:17:400:17:44

-KNOCK AT DOOR MAN:

-Hello.

-Hello.

-(It's the sheriff.)

0:17:480:17:51

-Oh, man! The fat freak told on us.

-(Quiet, Cal.)

0:17:530:17:57

Quiet. Back door. Let's go.

0:17:570:17:59

Come on. Close the door.

0:18:030:18:05

-SIGHS

-Come on. This way.

0:18:070:18:08

DOG BARKS BOTH WHISPER: No.

0:18:080:18:10

Shh! No. Shh! Quiet.

0:18:100:18:13

-WHIMPERS

0:18:130:18:17

Muchacho, what have we got here?

0:18:170:18:20

-Well, here you boys are.

-BARKS

0:18:200:18:22

Muchacho, callate!

0:18:220:18:23

He minds better in Spanish.

0:18:250:18:27

What are you boys up to?

0:18:270:18:30

Hmm?

0:18:300:18:32

Listen, I've got a favour to ask y'all.

0:18:320:18:34

Would you mind coming with me over to that sideshow trailer?

0:18:340:18:37

Sir?

0:18:370:18:39

I need to find out what those fellows' plans are.

0:18:390:18:42

But I don't want to scare that...that fat kid, you know?

0:18:420:18:45

Now, since you boys are about his age,

0:18:450:18:48

maybe he'll relax, loosen up

0:18:480:18:50

and tell me the whereabouts of that other guy.

0:18:500:18:52

It's a nice place you've got here.

0:18:590:19:02

-You have everything you need?

-I'm fine, cowboy.

0:19:020:19:05

"Sheriff" will do.

0:19:050:19:07

Looks like you've got a problem with your window over there.

0:19:070:19:10

What happened?

0:19:100:19:11

Guess some kids did it.

0:19:140:19:16

Well, I'll drop by later on, and we'll get somebody to fix it.

0:19:160:19:20

Toby and Cal here are about your age. How old are you boys?

0:19:200:19:23

-BOTH: 12.

-I'm 14.

0:19:230:19:25

You don't sound like you're from Texas.

0:19:250:19:28

I'm from New York - New York City. Ever heard of it?

0:19:280:19:30

-CHUCKLES

-You're somewhat of a comedian too.

0:19:300:19:34

Uh, so you and Wizard are from New York. Is that right?

0:19:360:19:40

Wizard? Nobody calls Paulie that. Except Paulie.

0:19:400:19:44

He's from Jersey.

0:19:440:19:47

Do you know where Paulie is now?

0:19:470:19:49

He's looking for a couple of acts to add to our show.

0:19:490:19:52

-So Paulie is your father?

-No way.

0:19:520:19:55

Hey, put it down! My mom gave that to me.

0:19:550:19:57

-Put it down, Cal.

-Put it down!

0:19:570:19:59

-It's just a Bible.

-It's not just a Bible.

0:19:590:20:02

My mom gave that to me when I got baptised.

0:20:020:20:05

-Cal.

-Now put it down!

0:20:050:20:06

Cal, put the boy's Bible down.

0:20:060:20:08

All right. So, where are your parents?

0:20:100:20:13

Rosemont Cemetery.

0:20:130:20:16

Oh. Well, I'm sorry to hear that, son.

0:20:160:20:18

-I'm not your son.

-Uh, course not.

0:20:180:20:22

-Who is your legal guardian?

-Paulie Rankin is my legal guardian.

0:20:220:20:25

I see.

0:20:250:20:27

Well, I hate to break this to you,

0:20:270:20:29

but Mr Rankin should never have left you here.

0:20:290:20:32

There's nothing to worry about. Paulie will be back by tomorrow.

0:20:320:20:36

Well, he told Ferris he would be back today.

0:20:360:20:39

Whatever. I'm his business partner, you know?

0:20:390:20:43

I see.

0:20:430:20:45

Well, you boys stay here and get acquainted.

0:20:450:20:48

Mr Beaver, I do hope your partner comes back.

0:20:480:20:54

What is this? I'm the biggest crime problem in the whole town?

0:20:580:21:01

SNEEZES

0:21:020:21:04

Sure gets dusty in here quick with that window broken.

0:21:060:21:10

Get the TV too.

0:21:120:21:14

Do you do tricks with those or something?

0:21:160:21:18

Yeah. They're called sleights.

0:21:180:21:20

It's all about the shuffle and the patter.

0:21:200:21:22

Shuffle and the patter.

0:21:220:21:24

Oh! Hey, man! Look. There's the Wizard.

0:21:240:21:27

That's an old book.

0:21:270:21:28

Paulie and I are going to be much bigger than all those acts.

0:21:280:21:31

We're adding more talent. We've got a big future in showbiz.

0:21:310:21:36

Right.

0:21:360:21:38

So, what do you cowpokes do around here for fun?

0:21:380:21:41

-We're not cowpokes.

-Really?

0:21:410:21:43

Isn't this Texas,

0:21:430:21:44

where the buffalo roam and the deer and the cantaloupe play?

0:21:440:21:48

Right. There's tons of cantaloupe running around out here.

0:21:480:21:50

They're right alongside the watermelons.

0:21:500:21:52

-I said "antelope".

-No, you didn't.

0:21:520:21:55

-Yeah, I did.

-Didn't.

0:21:550:21:56

-Did.

-Didn't.

0:21:560:21:57

-I did.

-Didn't.

0:21:570:21:59

BOTH ARGUE You guys, um...

0:21:590:22:02

-BOTH ARGUE

-Don't mess with me, OK?

0:22:020:22:04

We're not cowpokes. BOTH ARGUE

0:22:040:22:07

Guys, come on. BOTH ARGUE

0:22:070:22:10

YELLS: Cal!

0:22:100:22:11

It's time to go.

0:22:120:22:14

You know you said "cantaloupe".

0:22:150:22:17

It's pretty cool he didn't tell on us, huh?

0:22:200:22:22

Yeah.

0:22:220:22:23

Otto.

0:22:290:22:31

-OTTO:

-I heard you boys were in the back of the squad car.

0:22:340:22:36

-You in some kind of trouble?

-Not at all.

0:22:360:22:39

We were helping the sheriff with some official business.

0:22:390:22:41

About Zachary Beaver over there.

0:22:410:22:43

Now, Otto, I wouldn't want my son mixed up with those people.

0:22:430:22:45

These boys have been a big help.

0:22:450:22:47

Find out anything new I need to know?

0:22:470:22:49

If your wife was here, she'd probably write a song about it -

0:22:490:22:52

something like The Ballad Of Zachary Beaver.

0:22:520:22:54

Any word on that contest yet?

0:22:540:22:56

No, not yet.

0:22:570:23:00

Toby, I need you to come with me.

0:23:000:23:02

Sorry, Cal.

0:23:020:23:04

SIGHS

0:23:080:23:09

-She didn't win.

-But you just told everybody...

0:23:160:23:19

Well, it was a long shot.

0:23:230:23:26

At least we'll have her back tomorrow, right, Dad?

0:23:260:23:29

She'll be staying on for a while.

0:23:300:23:32

She got runner-up,

0:23:330:23:35

and apparently some...some manager thinks he can get her a record deal.

0:23:350:23:41

How long will that take?

0:23:410:23:43

Those kind of things can take a long time, son.

0:23:430:23:46

How long?

0:23:460:23:47

Sometimes they never happen.

0:23:480:23:50

Mom wouldn't leave us forever.

0:23:520:23:54

When is she coming back? SIGHS

0:23:540:23:58

I can't answer that.

0:23:590:24:01

You're going to have to call her and ask her yourself.

0:24:010:24:04

-SCARLET:

-What you doing?

0:25:080:25:10

Nothing.

0:25:110:25:13

What are you doing?

0:25:150:25:17

Nothing.

0:25:170:25:18

Are you OK?

0:25:270:25:29

I broke up with Juan.

0:25:290:25:32

Oh.

0:25:320:25:34

Sorry. That's tough, huh?

0:25:340:25:36

Mama didn't like Juan because he's 15 and Guatemalan,

0:25:360:25:40

but I bet if he was 20 and a Martian,

0:25:400:25:44

she'd like him fine, just as long as he was rich.

0:25:440:25:48

He won't stand up to her,

0:25:480:25:49

and I don't want a boyfriend that's scared of my mama.

0:25:490:25:53

No, you don't want that. You deserve better.

0:25:530:25:56

You're right!

0:25:570:25:59

I do!

0:26:000:26:02

It was good talking to you, though.

0:27:070:27:10

0:27:100:27:11

0:27:570:28:00

Here. My dad told me to bring you this...dirt.

0:28:000:28:03

Not dirt - soil.

0:28:030:28:05

Fertilised and aerated by your dad's worms.

0:28:050:28:08

How do you think he knew I needed more?

0:28:080:28:10

I don't know. You know how he is.

0:28:100:28:12

Hey. Are you wearing contact lenses?

0:28:120:28:15

Yeah. My mom said they looked better.

0:28:150:28:17

You do look more...grown-up.

0:28:170:28:19

Oh, how'd your mom do last night?

0:28:190:28:22

The Country Music Television place... had a fire...

0:28:240:28:28

MOUTHS Uh...

0:28:280:28:29

..and they postponed the contest.

0:28:290:28:32

How horrible. Was anybody hurt?

0:28:320:28:34

No. It just burned the part where they're holding it.

0:28:340:28:37

Oh. I see.

0:28:370:28:40

They haven't rescheduled it yet...

0:28:400:28:42

but, er, my mom's hanging out till it's over.

0:28:420:28:45

Hmm. Well, give her my best when you talk to her.

0:28:450:28:48

-OK.

-Cal's inside, I think.

Hey.

0:28:560:28:57

Oh, hey, Toby. How are you doing?

0:28:580:29:00

Um, I'm cool. Hi.

0:29:030:29:05

Famous people always get the best clothes -

0:29:050:29:08

things you can't buy around here, like this.

0:29:080:29:11

I love her top.

0:29:110:29:13

I've got to have lunch made or my mom will freak out.

0:29:140:29:18

My dad likes to cook.

0:29:190:29:21

Don't you wear...glasses?

0:29:230:29:27

I did. Contacts.

0:29:280:29:30

# Toby is a weirdo Toby is a weirdo. #

0:29:540:29:58

I did not spray the perfume.

0:29:580:29:59

When I got this...nice radio, I spilt...and then the top fell off.

0:29:590:30:04

And then...then I put it back.

0:30:040:30:06

Nuh-uh. You sprayed some perfume.

Your mom was at that singing competition, right?

How'd she do?

0:30:580:31:00

Uh, it's been postponed. There was a fire.

0:31:000:31:04

Fire? Where?

0:31:040:31:06

At Country Music Television.

0:31:060:31:07

Bull! I was just watching it at work.

0:31:070:31:11

They never said a thing and they were broadcasting just fine.

0:31:110:31:14

Look, it doesn't matter if she didn't win.

0:31:150:31:17

I'm proud of her for just trying to get out of this town.

-That's wild.

-What fire?

0:32:000:32:01

At Country Music Television studio.

0:32:010:32:04

Just a small one, but it messed up some stuff my mom was doing there.

0:32:040:32:08

When did your mom die, anyway?

0:32:080:32:10

You said she got you that Bible when you were baptised, right?

0:32:100:32:13

I didn't ever say I got baptised. I said I almost got baptised.

0:32:130:32:18

How does someone almost get baptised?

0:32:360:32:37

Now, what I'm about to write to you is pretty damn hard for me,

0:32:380:32:42

and it has nothing to do with whether I won or not.

0:32:420:32:45

I didn't, but never mind that.

0:32:450:32:47

Me and your dad have been having a rough time of it lately

0:32:480:32:51

and I need some time to figure some things out.

0:32:510:32:54

Don't go blaming yourself.

You are the best son that a mother could have.

0:32:560:32:58

And I'm not leaving you - your father has my phone number

and I'm only a phone call away.

Hey. You don't use that kind of language.

How else can I get your attention?

0:33:520:33:53

You try that stunt again, you'll get the wrong kind of attention.

I have provided a very good life for you and your mother.

I guess it wasn't exciting enough for your mom.

but the microphone wasn't invented until 1878.

0:54:010:54:04

Think about it.

0:54:040:54:06

What recordings could Edison's player play that first year?

0:54:060:54:09

Weird, huh?

0:54:090:54:11

You sure know a lot of stuff.

0:54:110:54:13

Have you ever been to a funeral?

0:54:180:54:20

Yeah - my mother's.

0:54:210:54:23

It was awful.

0:54:230:54:26

They had to make a special casket.

0:54:260:54:28

She was like me, you know.

0:54:290:54:31

Bigger.

0:54:310:54:33

-SIGHS

-Anyway...

0:54:330:54:35

CNN showed up.

0:54:350:54:37

Dateline.

0:54:370:54:39

Looking for human interest news.

0:54:390:54:41

When they saw me, it got out of hand.

0:54:420:54:45

It was supposed to be private.

0:54:450:54:47

What happened to your dad?

0:54:490:54:51

Gone since I was a baby.

0:54:510:54:54

So Paulie's my legal guardian, the closest thing I've got to family.

0:54:540:54:59

My mom's staying in Nashville.

0:55:030:55:06

She left us for a shot at a singing career.

0:55:060:55:08

I don't know when I'll ever see her again.

0:55:100:55:12

-SIGHS

-I thought I was going to die before.

0:55:130:55:17

The train.

0:55:170:55:19

And I thought then I'd never see my mother again.

0:55:190:55:23

But your, er...mother's already dead.

0:55:230:55:27

That's why she wanted me to get baptised -

0:55:270:55:29

so I could see her again in heaven.

0:55:290:55:32

So, since you weren't baptised, you can't go to heaven?

0:55:320:55:36

Apparently they don't let you in.

0:55:380:55:40

You know, you've got yourself a pretty mellow daddy there, my man.

0:55:510:55:54

I'd count my blessings on that.

0:55:540:55:57

I'd be major PO'd if my boy took my truck, carried around a, er...

0:55:570:56:02

I mean, how much does he weigh?

0:56:020:56:04

-MAN:

-The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.

0:56:050:56:08

He makes me lie down in green pastures.

0:56:080:56:11

He leads me in the path of righteousness for his name's sake.

0:56:110:56:14

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadows of death,

0:56:140:56:17

I fear no evil.

0:56:170:56:18

For thou art with me.

0:56:180:56:20

Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

0:56:200:56:23

-MAN:

-Good luck to you.

0:56:260:56:28

You boys are in a lot of trouble. A lot of trouble.

0:56:350:56:38

I woke up

0:56:380:56:40

to everybody looking for auto thieves, kidnappers - you name it.

0:56:400:56:44

-CAR HORN TOOTS

-Uh.

0:56:440:56:45

It was not a good day for it either.

0:56:450:56:47

-PANTS

-Don't ever start drinking, boys.

0:56:470:56:51

-Next to money...

-It's the root of all evil.

0:56:510:56:55

Who told you that?

0:56:550:56:57

I think I've heard it once or twice.

0:56:580:57:01

Well, don't even think about going anywhere. Your dad's on the way.

0:57:020:57:05

And the sheriff's coming to see you, Mr Beaver.

0:57:050:57:08

To let you know they'll be taking you away later today.

0:57:080:57:12

My dad's going to kill me. I know he is.

0:57:140:57:17

Here.

0:57:200:57:23

67 - all the money I have on my tab.

0:57:230:57:27

We're even.

0:57:270:57:29

And you lie.

0:57:320:57:34

Just as much as your new best friend.

0:57:340:57:36

Everyone knows about your mom.

0:57:380:57:40

She's never coming back.

0:57:420:57:46

Never ever...

0:57:470:57:49

..coming back.

0:57:520:57:54

Like Wayne.

0:57:580:58:00

Why don't you tell your little friend you can't visit right now?

0:58:220:58:25

Come and see me inside.

0:58:270:58:29

Thanks for the necklace, but I can't keep it.

0:58:350:58:40

-Why not?

-It's too nice a gift.

0:58:400:58:43

My mom said I have to return it to you,

0:58:430:58:46

and...pearls remind me of something an old lady would wear.

0:58:460:58:51

I'm sorry.

0:58:520:58:54

My mom never wore them either.

0:58:540:58:56

Did you really steal your dad's truck and drive halfway to Bishop?

0:58:580:59:03

Wow.

0:59:040:59:06

Bye.

0:59:080:59:10

-Is that a present?

-No.

0:59:210:59:24

-Well, what is it?

-It's nothing.

0:59:240:59:26

Hey, come back here.

0:59:260:59:27

-I'm not mad at you.

-Good.

0:59:290:59:32

Son, do you have any idea what you put me through,

0:59:330:59:37

waiting to hear from you last night?

0:59:370:59:39

If you're not mad at me, why are you yelling?

0:59:390:59:41

I don't know.

0:59:430:59:45

Whatever. Just leave me alone, OK?

0:59:450:59:47

I see you up there.

0:59:581:00:00

Come on, Toby.

1:00:021:00:04

You're going to fall.

1:00:091:00:10

I used to be a pretty good climber too.

1:00:101:00:12

I spent all last night dreading I'd never see you again.

1:00:141:00:19

I'm not mad. I'm relieved.

1:00:191:00:22

Wayne's folks...

1:00:251:00:27

..they aren't so lucky.

1:00:281:00:30

They don't get him back, ever.

1:00:301:00:32

I know. Life sucks.

1:00:321:00:35

Can't count on anyone or anything.

1:00:351:00:38

You can.

1:00:421:00:43

You can count on me.

1:00:451:00:46

And you can count on your mother.

1:00:481:00:51

You can go and see her whenever you want.

1:00:511:00:53

I don't want to have to GO to see her.

1:00:541:00:57

It shouldn't be like that.

1:00:571:00:59

But it is.

1:00:591:01:00

It's not the end of the world.

1:01:021:01:04

It just feels like it.

1:01:041:01:06

Your mother and me - we, er...

1:01:091:01:11

Well...

1:01:131:01:14

I thought we wanted the same things in life, but we don't.

1:01:151:01:19

But we both love you, though.

1:01:211:01:23

That's about all I know for sure.

1:01:231:01:25

I hate this.

1:01:291:01:30

Me too.

1:01:331:01:34

Dad?

1:01:391:01:40

I did something really bad.

1:01:431:01:45

TOBY: I'm sorry.

1:01:581:02:00

Really.

1:02:001:02:02

Here.

1:02:021:02:03

You know, his picture's still in there.

1:02:071:02:09

And one more thing - I wrote him back,

1:02:151:02:19

signed it "from Cal", as if I were you.

1:02:191:02:22

Just keep it!

1:02:251:02:27

TOBY: Cal!

1:02:311:02:32

Cal!

1:02:361:02:37

Oh!

1:02:401:02:42

Cal. Cal!

1:03:051:03:07

Cal!

1:03:091:03:10

-Cal! Come on. I'm trying to help...

-Stop! Stop!

1:03:131:03:15

-Come on. Let me help you.

-You don't care!

1:03:151:03:17

You want to fight? I'll fight!

1:03:191:03:21

ROARS

1:03:211:03:24

ROARS

1:03:241:03:25

Sorry. I'm sorry, man.

1:03:331:03:35

I'm sorry!

1:03:361:03:38

Come on. Help me with my bike.

1:03:381:03:40

BOTH SIGH HEAVILY

1:03:401:03:42

Phew!

1:03:431:03:45

LAUGHS Man, you actually hurt me.

1:03:451:03:48

-LAUGHS

-Good.

1:03:481:03:49

Man, I...I should have written him back myself.

1:03:541:03:57

I should have gone to the funeral.

1:03:591:04:00

So...what did you write him about?

1:04:021:04:05

What a fun summer you and I were having.

1:04:061:04:08

How we'd eat snow cones for him. Stuff like that.

1:04:081:04:12

Yeah, well, now he's up in heaven

1:04:121:04:14

and he can probably see everything we're doing.

1:04:141:04:16

I bet you riding our bikes into the lake impressed him.

1:04:161:04:18

-Oh, yeah, I'm sure!

-Yeah.

1:04:181:04:20

You know, the dunking in the water and all...

1:04:221:04:24

it's kind of like you finally got baptised.

1:04:241:04:26

Yeah.

1:04:261:04:28

Wait. This could work.

1:04:281:04:31

You're a genius!

1:04:311:04:32

Found it!

1:04:341:04:37

Do you think it even counts if we do it ourselves?

1:04:371:04:40

Let's see what it says.

1:04:401:04:42

There it is.

1:04:421:04:44

Does this make any sense to you?

1:04:451:04:47

None. It's not exactly an instruction manual.

1:04:471:04:51

We need help.

1:04:521:04:54

I ain't a preacher.

1:04:551:04:57

But you almost were. My mom told me.

1:04:571:04:59

"Almost" and "is" ain't the same.

1:04:591:05:01

What's all this about?

1:05:021:05:04

We need to get Zachary baptised

1:05:041:05:06

before they take him away and it's too late.

1:05:061:05:08

We have to get him baptised so he can get into heaven.

1:05:081:05:11

To see his mom.

1:05:111:05:12

Sounds like you'd better go see Reverend Newton.

1:05:121:05:14

No. He'd make us use the baptistery in the church.

1:05:141:05:17

Well, that's how it's done.

1:05:171:05:19

Zachary wouldn't fit.

1:05:191:05:21

He wouldn't even go for it.

1:05:211:05:23

If word got out, there'd be a crowd.

1:05:231:05:26

How would you baptise that boy without a baptistery?

1:05:261:05:29

-Gossimer Lake.

-You'd be trespassing.

1:05:291:05:32

Besides, somebody might drown.

1:05:321:05:34

Not if you came.

1:05:341:05:35

No, no, no, no, no, no. I don't need the trouble.

1:05:351:05:39

DOG BARKS

1:05:391:05:40

Come on, man. We've got to hurry.

1:05:441:05:46

I don't even understand this. Can you at least explain it?

1:05:491:05:54

Matthew 3:14 and 15.

1:05:541:05:56

KNOCKING

1:05:561:05:58

Oh, yeah.

1:06:011:06:03

This is about Jesus...trying to get John the Baptist to baptise him.

1:06:031:06:07

But John doesn't think he's good enough.

1:06:071:06:09

-I mean, he's Jesus.

-So, what happens?

1:06:101:06:13

Well, gather what stuff you can and I'll...I'll send the rest.

1:06:131:06:18

WHINES

1:06:181:06:19

Look, I know it's hard, but it'll go better if you cooperate.

1:06:191:06:22

"For thus becometh us to fulfil righteousness."

1:06:241:06:28

Get it?

1:06:281:06:30

Jesus is saying that by John doing the act

1:06:301:06:33

he will become worthy of doing it.

1:06:331:06:35

Mm-hm. So he does it.

1:06:351:06:37

Of course he does it.

1:06:371:06:38

Then you'll do it for Zachary.

1:06:381:06:40

-SIGHS

-I didn't say that.

1:06:401:06:43

We need you, Ferris. Come on.

1:06:431:06:46

Gossimer Lake, 5.00.

1:06:461:06:48

Or we'll try it ourselves,

1:06:481:06:50

and God knows if he'll get into heaven or not.

1:06:501:06:52

SIGHS

1:06:541:06:55

Oh. It's you guys. Why are you all dressed up?

1:07:161:07:21

Zachary Beaver, we're here to take you to your baptism.

1:07:211:07:24

I'm not going to any church.

1:07:241:07:26

You're NOT. WE'RE going to baptise you.

1:07:261:07:28

How? They're coming for me any minute.

1:07:281:07:32

We have it all planned out.

1:07:321:07:34

Trust us.

1:07:341:07:36

Ferris? Ferris?

1:07:421:07:46

I guess we're going to have to do this ourselves.

1:07:461:07:48

Do you even know which chapter?

1:07:561:07:58

-FERRIS:

-Sorry I'm late.

1:08:031:08:05

I decided to take Matthew's word for it.

1:08:071:08:09

Do you prefer the long or the short version?

1:08:151:08:17

The short will work just as well?

1:08:171:08:19

Yes, sir. It's a personal preference.

1:08:191:08:21

My dinner rush starts in a half an hour.

1:08:211:08:24

Short will do.

1:08:241:08:25

This water's cold.

1:08:251:08:28

You got a middle name?

1:08:281:08:30

-MUTTERS:

-Elvis.

1:08:301:08:31

Alvin?

1:08:311:08:33

Elvis.

1:08:331:08:34

Elvis?

1:08:341:08:36

That's a fine name.

1:08:361:08:39

Do you, Zachary Elvis Beaver,

1:08:391:08:41

take the Lord Jesus Christ as your saviour?

1:08:411:08:43

Yeah.

1:08:431:08:45

-I can't hear you.

-Yeah!

1:08:451:08:47

That's the way.

1:08:471:08:48

I baptise you in the name of the Father and the Son

1:08:501:08:53

and the Holy Ghost.

1:08:531:08:55

Whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

1:08:551:09:00

Amen.

1:09:001:09:02

It's time for your plunge.

1:09:021:09:03

-Don't be afraid. We won't drop you.

-Yeah, come on.

1:09:081:09:10

LAUGHS

1:09:131:09:15

Lift him up! Come on!

1:09:151:09:17

ALL GRUNT WITH EXERTION

1:09:171:09:18

Ah!

1:09:291:09:31

Ah!

1:09:311:09:32

God bless you, Zachary Beaver!

1:09:321:09:34

Yeah!

1:09:341:09:36

It's OK. Let's go.

1:09:581:10:01

Now, what... Oh! I'm glad we're putting an end to this nonsense.

1:10:061:10:11

What on earth...?

1:10:151:10:17

Have y'all been swimming?

1:10:171:10:19

Something like that.

1:10:191:10:20

SIGHS

1:10:201:10:22

Zachary, we've got important business to take care of.

1:10:221:10:26

These people are from the State Social Services Office.

1:10:261:10:29

And they'll find somewhere to place you.

1:10:291:10:31

Better than being left in a tin can in an empty lot.

1:10:311:10:35

They'll find you a good home.

1:10:351:10:37

That tin can IS my home.

1:10:371:10:39

Where are they going to take me, Sheriff?

1:10:411:10:43

Um...

1:10:441:10:46

Away. Right, Sheriff?

1:10:461:10:48

It doesn't matter where, as long as he's away from here, right?

1:10:481:10:51

CAR HORN BEEPS

1:10:511:10:53

Paulie! Welcome back, you bum!

1:10:551:10:58

Zach, what, are you in some kind of trouble?

1:10:581:11:01

Actually, Mr Rankin, I'm afraid YOU'RE in trouble.

1:11:011:11:04

Very big trouble.

1:11:041:11:05

What? Wha... What did he do? What did you...?

1:11:051:11:08

I can't leave you alone for a couple of days now

1:11:081:11:11

without all hell breaking loose?

1:11:111:11:12

-Why, I ought to...

-Hey. Hey. Just calm down.

1:11:121:11:15

That's the whole point. You can't leave this boy alone.

1:11:151:11:17

You are the guardian. It's not legal and it's not right.

1:11:171:11:20

Not right? Not right.

1:11:201:11:22

Well, I'll tell you, all of you,

1:11:221:11:25

what's not right.

1:11:251:11:27

What's not right is when I, his guardian,

1:11:271:11:30

try to make a better life for the kid...

1:11:301:11:32

by expanding our business,

1:11:321:11:35

and this insane country called Texas throws everything at me

1:11:351:11:39

to stick it to me, to...to screw me, to...

1:11:391:11:41

I can't get one hour outside of this town

1:11:411:11:44

before fascist obstacle number one - a speed trap.

1:11:441:11:47

Sends me straight to a game of Texas Hold'Em, county jail version.

1:11:471:11:50

I'm required to pay cash - fascist obstacle number two -

1:11:501:11:53

of which I don't have enough.

1:11:531:11:55

So what do I do?

1:11:551:11:56

I'm forced to spend three days washing dishes,

1:11:561:11:58

with no rights normally reserved for citizens of the United States,

1:11:581:12:02

which apparently I left when I came to Texas.

1:12:021:12:04

Then I'm finally able to make a phone call.

1:12:041:12:06

I dial the number that he gave me. No answer all day.

1:12:061:12:10

Ferris, do you remember any calls?

1:12:111:12:13

I don't hear the phone so good sometimes.

1:12:131:12:16

So, what can I do?

1:12:161:12:18

I now have exactly one day to drive halfway across this state

1:12:181:12:20

to catch up with Pablo and Esther here, who were expecting me days ago,

1:12:201:12:25

to meet with them about joining our growing enterprise.

1:12:251:12:27

Uh, you know, Esther's a dancer, Pablo's a contortionist.

1:12:271:12:32

Pablo, Esther - do your...you know, give them a taste of the act.

1:12:321:12:35

You got it, Wizard.

1:12:351:12:37

Watch this.

1:12:371:12:39

-Not bad.

-Bravo. Incredible.

1:13:011:13:03

Wasn't that amazing? I tell you, I've seen a lot of things.

1:13:031:13:05

But anyway, I drive today, all day,

1:13:051:13:08

through God knows how many speed traps,

1:13:081:13:10

to get back to my business partner.

1:13:101:13:13

Zachary, are you a legal partner in this business?

1:13:151:13:20

I think so.

1:13:211:13:23

-Am I, Paulie?

-Yeah, of course you are.

1:13:231:13:26

Well, I don't know whether to take his word, turn you loose,

1:13:261:13:29

or take him in for abandonment.

1:13:291:13:32

What really matters is what you want to do, Zachary.

1:13:321:13:36

You've got a choice.

1:13:361:13:37

And you do not have to stay with Paulie if you don't want to.

1:13:371:13:40

I'm going to stick with Paulie.

1:13:471:13:49

Good move, Zach.

1:13:491:13:51

Now, are you sure about that?

1:13:511:13:53

I'm sure.

1:13:531:13:55

TOBY: 'Zachary's life was going to be different now.

1:13:581:14:00

'And so was mine and Cal's.

1:14:001:14:02

'We figured something out - there really is no such thing as normal.

1:14:021:14:06

'But when we help each other, there can be such a thing as extraordinary.'

1:14:061:14:10

-Can I get a picture?

-Yeah, sure.

1:14:101:14:12

Great!

1:14:121:14:13

'Wayne's gone, but he'll always be with us.

1:14:151:14:19

'I know that now.'

1:14:191:14:20

This is for you.

1:14:261:14:27

Thank you.

1:14:301:14:32

You ready?

1:14:391:14:41

Good luck, everybody.

1:14:501:14:51

Hope y'all like Mozart.

CAR ENGINE STARTS

1:15:541:15:56

What are you boys doing up on my roof?

1:16:151:16:18

Watching the comings and goings of Granger?

1:16:181:16:20

-Yeah.

-Mostly the goings.

1:16:201:16:23

BOTH LAUGH SOFTLY

1:16:231:16:25

Well, why don't you come on inside? I'll fix you a breakfast special.

1:16:291:16:32

You got any money?

1:16:321:16:33

-It's on the house.

-CLAPS

1:16:331:16:35

All right! Yeah!

1:16:351:16:38

LAUGHS

1:16:381:16:39

Can you see them any more?

1:16:491:16:50

Nah.
