“You should have seen this. Back on Thursday, these two ladies were shopping at the Korean fruit and vegetable store down on the corner. And they left the there baby carriage just near the door, and it starts rolling down the sidewalk going towards the street. So I’m shouting about it and this guy — I’ve never seen him before — he goes and rescues the carriage before there’s any trouble. Those ladies don’t seem to hardly care, even though there was for sure a baby in there. And when they’re finished shopping, they walk up the street plaughing, and I said to them: ‘ You know, you can by fruits and vegetables anywhere, but you can’t buy a new baby.’ So one of them gives me the finger and they just keep walking.”

PHILIP
“They gave you the finger?”

TONY
“Yup. With a moms like that, you know kids are gonna be messed up.”

TONY
“I worked for my aunt back when I was younger. She was a red lighter. I just hung around until she got the guy on the blocks. Then I’d get his pants and pick ’em.”

PHILIP
“How old were you?”

TONY
“About eight I think.”

PHILIP
“How much older was your Dad than you were ?”

TONY
“I don’t know.”

PHILIP
“You mean you don’t know how much older your Dad was than you?”

TONY
“No.”

PHILIP
“How about your Mom?”

TONY
“No idea, believe it or not.”

PHILIP
“Didn’t you live with your parents when you were growing up?”

TONY
“Pretty much.”
