Look, Daddy. A volcano.
Very pretty. Now drink up your volcano.
All right. We're going. Mommy's waiting.
Please. Just one more minute.
No, we're going.
Until l ended up flatlining at the hospital.
But l survived,
and instead of letting that scare me l kept on going.
Until my first daughter was born.
And now l look at my girls and...
who's been standing by me for so long -
Think which one you're going to pull out.
l always think.
No, you don't.
They didn't lock you up this time because you're not eighteen yet.
Next time they're gonna lock you up, brother.
You're not thinking.
Stealing might get you money,
you tap some cheerleader's ass ...
show off riding some pickle-colored Thunderbird,...
but what's gonna happen if you shoot a pregnant woman or an old man?
You know what will happen?
The guilt will suck you down to the bone.
Stealing ain't worth it.
Goin' to church, reading the Bible...
and believing in Jesus, brother, that's your ticket.
You think it's a fantasy, right?
Come here, man. Get up. Come here.
You see that truck? Beauty, ain't it?
l won it at a friend's raffle.
No shit. You know what? lt wasn't luck.
lt was Jesus who wanted me to have that truck.
That's bullshit. l bet you stole it.
Jesus gave me that truck.
And it's He who gives, and He who takes away.
Yeah, right. He doesn't give a shit about us.
Take off your hat.
Take off that hat!
God even know when a single hair moves on your head.
You're wrong, Nick.
So this is death's waiting room.
These ridiculous tubes.
These needles swelling my arms.
What am l doing in this pre-corpse club?
What do l have to do with them?
l don't know when anything began anymore...
or when it's gonna end.
Who'll be the first to lose their life?
He, in the coma?
Alright. You can get dressed now.
Your fallopian tubes are severely damaged.
lt looks like you had an infection that...
wasn't taken care of properly.
We can try surgery, but l have to tell you...
l think the probabilities are slim.
Excuse me for asking this, but it's important that you tell me the truth
Have you ever had an abortion?
l had already separated from my husband when l got pregnant...
l meant medical reason.
My husband's dying.
Paul, my husband, he's dying.
And l want to have his baby.
We can operate
and hope you get pregnant within a few months.
He's got one month left. At most.
How did it go?
Not good, Reverend. ln one ear and out the other.
All it takes is one sheep in a thousand.
Wolf, you still havin' that birthday party Wednesday?
My place, brother.
l may be late. l have Bible class Wednesday.
l told you to think.
Hit me. Hit me.
Leave it, Jack!
He's just a kid. Jack!
He's a punk, Reverend.
No, he's a kid.
You think, Jack. You think.
For those who are making decisions that affect our lives,...
we must call out to God to give them His wisdom.
l'll see you tomorrow.
l'll pick the boys up after school if you want.
How's my queen?
Freddy, help me out.
l got the cooler from the religious center.
Dad, are we gonna go buy a dog now?
Freddy, we agreed - no dogs.
Why not? You said if l got a good grades you'd buy me one.
We've been through this a thousand times.
Your sister has allergies and dog hair is bad for her.
Bad for her. Not me. Get me a dog.
No, and that's the end of it.
Well, at least give me a hamster.
Well, we'll see.
We'll see. You always say ''You promise''.
Hey, Wolf - you back, motherfucker?
Lock down six.
Age before beauty.
You're such a sore loser.
You want to go to the jacuzzi for a while?
l can't. Michael and the girls are waiting for me already.
Okay. Call me later.
l'll call you.
lf you get away from leading your family like a man of God...
ought to lead his family - in prayer and reading the word of God,...
and the things of God, and bringing them to the house of God,...
then you're opening the door
