Crossroads Cafe – Rush to Judgement


[music] LISTEN TO THIS– CRIME UP 12%, 10 DIE
IN HURRICANE. IT’S NO WONDER PEOPLE
FEEL DEPRESSED. MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T READ THE
NEWSPAPER EVERY DAY. OR JUST READ THE COMICS. HERE. FOR THE POLICE OFFICERS
AT THAT TABLE. THEY DON’T LOOK LIKE
POLICEMEN. DETECTIVES. I MET THEM HERE LAST WEEK. I JUST WANTED TO WELCOME THEM
TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD. GOOD IDEA. [conversing quietly] HERE YOU GO. UH, I’M SORRY. THERE MUST BE SOME MISTAKE. WE DIDN’T ORDER THIS. THEY’RE FROM MR. BRASHOV. OH. ROSA’S FAMOUS COFFEE
CAKE, ON THE HOUSE. WELL, THAT’S VERY NICE OF
YOU, BUT I’M AFRAID WE CAN’T ACCEPT IT. OH, PLEASE, I INSIST. I’M SORRY. IT’S AGAINST DEPARTMENT
POLICY. OH, I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT. ON THE OTHER HAND, WHY DON’T
YOU GO AHEAD AND PUT IT ON OUR BILL. I THINK MY PARTNER HERE HASN’T
EATEN IN ABOUT A MONTH. AS YOU WISH. I HOPE YOU WILL VISIT
US OFTEN. MMM. YOU’VE GOT A DEAL. HI, EVERYBODY. AREN’T YOU SUPPOSED
TO BE IN SCHOOL? I’M ON MY WAY. I WAS JUST IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD,
SHOWING MY GRANDPARENTS WHERE
THE BUS STOP IS. OH. WHERE ARE THEY GOING? TO THE SENIOR CITIZEN CENTER
FOR FLU SHOTS. THAT’S A LONG BUS RIDE. I KNOW. MY MOTHER WANTED ME TO GO WITH
THEM BEFORE SCHOOL, BUT I OVERSLEPT, AND NOW I DON’T
HAVE ANY TIME. DO YOU THINK THEY’LL
BE ALL RIGHT? YEAH, I THINK SO. I’M GIVING THEM VERY DETAILED
DIRECTIONS. YOU’RE GIVING THEM DIRECTION? YEAH. PLUS, THEY’VE ALSO GOT A MAP. NICE TO MEET YOU. THEY DON’T SPEAK MUCH ENGLISH. EXCUSE ME. I WOULD LIKE YOU TO
MEET HENRY CHANG. YOU’LL PROBABLY SEE HIM ON HIS
BICYCLE, RIDING AROUND, MAKING DELIVERIES. HENRY, THIS IS DETECTIVE
ANDERSON. OH, POLICE. NICE TO MEET YOU. THANKS FOR THE COFFEE CAKE. MY PLEASURE. WAS THERE A PROBLEM, HENRY? MY GRANDPARENTS ARE JUST
AFRAID OF THE POLICE. WHY IN CHINA, THE POLICE WEREN’T
VERY NICE TO THEM. AND FROM THE STORIES I’VE HEARD,
THEY’RE NOT SO NICE HERE EITHER. OH, THAT IS NOT FAIR, HENRY. NOT ALL POLICEMEN ARE ALIKE. IT’S JUST THE WAY I FEEL. ANYWAY, I BETTER GET GOING. SEE YOU LATER. DON’T BE LATE FOR
SCHOOL, HENRY. AM I EVER LATE? KATHERINE, WHY ISN’T
THERE ANY COFFEE? OH NO. THE POWER SWITCH MUST
BE BROKEN AGAIN. ROSA, IS JAMAL BACK THERE? HE HASN’T COME IN YET. OH, I JUST REMEMBERED. JAMAL CALLED LAST NIGHT TO SAY
HE MIGHT BE A LITTLE LATE GETTING IN THIS MORNING. EXCUSE ME. YES? POLICE. WHAT’CHA GOT THERE? TOOLS. WHAT DO YOU USE THEM FOR? I FIX THINGS. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDENTIFICATION,
SIR? IDENTIFICATION? IS THERE SOME SORT OF PROBLEM? CAN WE SEE SOME IDENTIFICATION? ALL RIGHT. MY DRIVER’S LICENSE
IS IN MY WALLET. I ALWAYS CARRY IT IN
MY BACK POCKET. IT SHOULD BE HERE. I GUESS I WAS SO TIRED THIS
MORNING I FORGOT TO TAKE IT WITH ME. OUR BABY HAS BEEN SICK. SHE KEPT US MOST OF THE NIGHT. WHAT’S YOUR NAME, PAL? JAMAL AL JABALI. WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT,
AROUND 11:30? AT HOME, WITH MY WIFE
AND DAUGHTER. AS I TOLD YOU, MY
BABY WAS SICK. I DON’T UNDERSTAND. IS IT AGAINST THE LAW TO NOT
HAVE IDENTIFICATION? LET ME ASK THE QUESTIONS, OK? WHERE WERE GOING IN
SUCH A HURRY? I’M LATE FOR WORK. AND YOU USE THIS TO
FIX THINGS, HUH? THERE IS A CABINET THAT WE’RE
HAVING PROBLEMS WITH. THE KEY IS LOST, AND I HAVE
TO BREAK THE LOCK. [sirens] MAYBE WE SHOULD CALL HIS
WIFE, VERIFY HIS STORY. WHAT’S YOUR PHONE NUMBER? UM, SHE’S NOT AT HOME. SHE’S OUT OF TOWN ON A
BUSINESS TRIP TODAY. IS THERE SOME KIND OF PROBLEM? CAN YOU STEP OVER TO
THE CAR, PLEASE? DON’T WORRY, I’M NOT
GOING ANYWHERE. I’M TELLING YOU, I HAVEN’T
DONE ANYTHING. HE’S CLEAN. PUT YOUR HANDS BEHIND
YOUR BACK. BUT I HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING. PUT YOUR HANDS BEHIND
YOUR BACK, NOW! AM I UNDER ARREST? NO, YOU’RE UNDER
INVESTIGATION. BUT I HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG. THEN YOU HAVE NOTHING
TO WORRY ABOUT. IF EVERYTHING CHECKS OUT,
THEN YOU’RE FREE TO GO. I HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG. [speaking chinese] [sirens] I’VE BEEN A POLICEMAN
FOR 25 YEARS. PROBABLY THE BIGGEST REASON I
BECAME A POLICEMAN IS I ENJOY WORKING WITH THE PUBLIC. MY NAME IS TONY. I’M WITH THE RIVERSIDE
POLICE DEPARTMENT. HEY, I LIVE AT RIVERSIDE. YOU LIVE IN RIVERSIDE? I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT THAT THE
POLICE WORK WITH CHILDREN, COME IN CONTACT. BUT I THINK IT’S GOT TO BE
ON A POSITIVE, NOT WITH A NEGATIVE, MAKING CLASS
PRESENTATIONS, MAKING IT ON A POSITIVE NOTE. AND WHAT COLOR IS
A POLICE CAR? ALL: WHITE AND BLACK. RIGHT. WORKING WITH THE MERCHANTS IS
VERY IMPORTANT, BECAUSE THEY’RE THE ONES THAT SEE THE
INFLUX OF PEOPLE THAT COME INTO THAT PARTICULAR
TYPE OF COMMUNITY. HOW’S THE WIFE? SHE’S DOING GREAT. NICE TO HAVE YOU IN THE AREA. DOING A REAL GOOD JOB. APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH. OH, THANK YOU. [speaking spanish] THERE’S A LARGE COMMUNITY OF
SPANISH-SPEAKING IN THIS CITY. AND IT IS AN ASSET THAT YOU
BE ABLE TO SPEAK SPANISH. [speaking spanish] I NEED A CDL ON ADAM. FIGHTING CRIME IS INTERPRETED
BY ARRESTING PEOPLE AND WRITING TICKETS. BUT I THINK THE MAIN ROLE
IS TO DETER CRIME. IN OTHER WORDS, TO SEE IF WE
CAN KEEP SOCIETY MOVING WITHOUT TAKING PEOPLE TO JAIL. HOW MUCH YOU USE YESTERDAY? A LITTLE BIT OF COKE. LITTLE BIT OF COKE? WELL, BE CAREFUL NOT TO BE
AROUND HERE ANYMORE, OK? TAKE CARE. [radio chatter] IN MY PARTICULAR BEAT, THERE’S
A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT KNOW ME BY NAME. WHAT’S UP? HEY, HOW YOU DOING? YEAH, I’M RIDING– OH! POLICE OFFICER. [laughs] I THINK I WOULD LIKE TO BE
CONSIDERED IN THE COMMUNITY AS AN OFFICER THAT THEY CAN LOOK
UP TO AND SAY, YEAH, IF YOU TELL TONY, HE’LL BE
ABLE TO HELP YOU. IF YOU WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH,
HE’LL TELL LIKE IT IS. HE’S THE FIRST POLICEMAN IN TOWN
THAT I MET IN MY 35 YEARS OF BEING IN RIVERSIDE. IT’S A PLEASURE TO COME
BY HERE AT TIMES. BECAUSE THEY ALSO TREAT
ME AS AN INDIVIDUAL INSTEAD OF AS A POLICEMAN. AS YOU NOTICE, THEY’RE
NOT CALLING ME OFFICER OR POLICEMAN. THEY’RE CALLING ME MR.
GARCIA, AND THAT’S BASICALLY WHERE IT STANDS. WE’RE ON EQUAL GROUNDS. [banging] THIS IS HOPELESS. WHERE IS JAMAL? I DON’T KNOW. BUT I HAVE A COUPLE AT TABLE
FOUR WHO ARE BEGGING FOR CAFFEINE IN ANY FORM. I’M NO GOOD AT THIS. [phone ringing] CROSSROADS CAFE. AH, JAMAL! FINALLY! WHERE ARE YOU? THE COFFEE MACHINE
IS BROKEN AGAIN. JAMAL, SLOW DOWN. I CAN’T UNDERSTAND YOU. WHAT? HOW COULD THAT BE? ALL RIGHT, JAMAL. YES, OF COURSE. I’LL BE THERE AS
SOON AS I CAN. WHAT’S THE MATTER? DON’T TELL ME I’VE GOT
TO DRINK TEA ALL DAY? THE POLICE TOOK JAMAL
TO THE STATION. WHY? TO QUESTION HIM. ABOUT WHAT? I COULDN’T UNDERSTAND
EVERYTHING. HE SPOKE SO FAST. SOMETHING ABOUT BURGLARIES. WAIT A MINUTE. I READ SOMETHING IN
THE METRO SECTION. HERE IT IS. “WANTED IN A STRING OF
RECENT BURGLARIES. EYE WITNESSES DESCRIBE THE
SUSPECT AS BEING MALE, MEDIUM BUILD, LATE 20S, POSSIBLY OF
MIDDLE EASTERN ORIGIN.” OH, DON’T TELL ME THE POLICE
THINK JAMAL’S INVOLVED. THEY ARE SAYING HE FITS THE
DESCRIPTION OF THE BURGLAR. THAT’S RIDICULOUS. THERE ARE MILLIONS OF MEN WHO
FIT THAT DESCRIPTION. BUT JAMAL’S INNOCENT. HE HAS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. WOULDN’T BE THE FIRST TIME AN
INNOCENT MAN WAS FOUND GUILTY. I’M GOING TO THE STATION. KATHERINE, SEE IF YOU CAN GET
HOLD OF JAMAL’S WIFE. SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT. YOU’VE GOT A BOX FULL OF
TOOLS, WITH A CROWBAR. YOU HAVE NO ID. YOU CLAIM YOU SPENT LAST NIGHT
WITH YOUR WIFE, BUT NOBODY SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO FIND HER. DOES THAT ABOUT COVER IT? I HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG. [knocking] YEAH. WHAT WE GOT? NOT MUCH. PLEASE, I HAVE TOLD
YOU EVERYTHING. CAN I GO BACK TO WORK NOW? BENTON’S STILL ON THE COMPUTER,
TRYING TO GET SOME INFORMATION? TELL HIM TO KEEP TRYING. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY
I’M DOING THIS TO ME. JUST DOING MY JOB, PAL. AND ALL I WANT IS
TO DO MY JOB. DID YOU LOCATE MY WIFE? NOPE. [knocking] YEAH. THIS JUST CAME IN FROM THE
IMMIGRATION SERVICE. WHAT’S THE STORY? THEY STILL CAN’T SEEM
TO IDENTIFY HIM. THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE. MAY I TAKE A LOOK? BE MY GUEST. MAY I BORROW YOUR PEN, PLEASE? MY LAST NAME IS AL JABALI. YOU HAVE JIHALI. OH. OK I’LL, UH, TRY IT AGAIN. YOU SEE. YOU’VE GOT THE WRONG MAN. REALLY? IT SAYS HERE THE SUSPECT IS
MALE, MEDIUM BUILD, MID 20S, DARK HAIR, DARK COMPLEXION. SOUNDS A LITTLE LIKE YOU. YOU MUST BE JOKING. DO I LOOK LIKE A CRIMINAL? DO I LOOK LIKE I’M JOKING? ALL RIGHT, LET’S TRY IT AGAIN
FROM THE BEGINNING. LIKE I TOLD YOU BEFORE, I
WAS HOME LAST NIGHT– YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT HERE. THAT RIGHT THERE
IS [inaudible]. WHAT WANT TO DO IS CROSS
THE STREET RIGHT HERE. AND IT’LL PUT YOU OVER
AT FISH AND CHIPS. ALL RIGHT, THEN YOU WANT TO
CROSS BACK [inaudible] ALL RIGHT? [speaking chinese] OK. FINE. YEAH, I’LL HOLD. C’MON, KID. YOU’VE BEEN ON THE PHONE
FOR 15 MINUTES. [phone ringing] GIVE ME JUST A SECOND, PLEASE. LADY, GIVE ME A BREAK. SIT DOWN. YES. I UNDERSTAND. I UNDERSTAND HE’S [inaudible]. YES, I’M SURE IT IS. BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT, TOO. IF YOU CAN JUST HELP
US LOCATE HER– I’M HERE TO SEE JAMAL
AL JABALI. TAKE A SEAT. I’LL BE WITH YOU IN A MINUTE. OK, NOW, IT’S VERY IMPORTANT– HAS JAMAL BEEN ARRESTED? JUST TAKE A SEAT! FINE, FINE. I UNDERSTAND. PLEASE HOLD ON. I CARRY DIFFERENT TOOLS
FOR DIFFERENT JOBS. WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING THE SAME QUESTIONS AGAIN AND AGAIN? [knocking] I WAS JUST ON THE PHONE WITH
SOMEONE WHO CLAIMS TO WORK WITH MRS.– JABALI? AL BIALI. WHAT? WE HAVE DIFFERENT LAST NAMES. WHATEVER. ANYWAY, THEY’RE TRYING
TO FIND HER. CAN I SEE JAMAL NOW? WHO? I’M HERE TO SEE JAMAL
AL JABALI. I’M VICTOR BRASHOV,
HIS EMPLOYER. HE’S BEING QUESTIONED. WHY? WHAT HAS JAMAL DONE? HE’S A POSSIBLE SUSPECT. LISTEN, YOU DO NOT KNOW JAMAL. I WOULD SWEAR MY LIFE
ON HIS GOOD NAME. YEAH, I APPRECIATE WHAT
YOU’RE SAYING. NOW WHY DON’T YOU JUST HAVE
A SEAT AND RELAX. JAMAL IS NOT CRIMINAL. HEY, HAVE A SEAT OR YOU’LL
HAVE TO WAIT OUTSIDE. THANKS. GOODBYE. HENRY, THAT’S THE FIFTH
CALL YOU’VE MADE IN THE PAST HALF HOUR. WHAT’S GOING ON? NEW GIRLFRIEND? MY GRANDPARENTS ARE MISSING. WHAT? THEY NEVER MADE IT TO
THE SENIOR CENTER. OH, NO. THIS IS ALL MY FAULT. IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT, HENRY. YOU WERE JUST TRYING TO HELP. I’M SURE THEY’LL TURN UP. YEAH, WELL, THEY BETTER
TURN UP SOON. I TOLD MY MOTHER THEY
WOULD BE HERE. HENRY. I KNOW, I KNOW. I’M GOING TO GO TRY TO
FIND THEM ON MY BIKE. HOLD ON A MINUTE, HENRY. I’LL DRIVE YOU. OH, I COULDN’T ASK
YOU TO DO THAT. YOU’RE NOT ASKING ME. I’M VOLUNTEERING. THANKS. HENRY, DON’T WORRY. I’M SURE YOU’LL FIND THEM. OH, I DON’T KNOW. THEY COULD BE ANYWHERE– LOST, SCARED, MAYBE EVEN HURT. [speaking chinese] IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU
TO DESCRIBE ME, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? PROFESSOR SMITH IS TALL,
DARK, AND HANDSOME? OR SHORT, GRAY, AND RUMPLED? [laughs] WELL, AT LEAST YOUR HONEST. DESCRIBING PEOPLE IS THE
FOCUS OF THIS EPISODE. YOU SEE, YOU’VE GOT
THE WRONG MAN. REALLY? SAYS HERE THE SUSPECT IS MALE,
MEDIUM BUILD, LATE 20S, DARK HAIR, DARK COMPLEXION. SOUNDS A LITTLE LIKE YOU. THAT’S RIGHT. SHE’S ABOUT FIVE FEET TALL,
WITH GRAY HAIR. THANKS GOODBYE. NOW LET’S SEE IF I CAN DESCRIBE
WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE– AFTER THE STORY, OF COURSE. SHOULD I CALL A LAWYER
FOR MY FRIEND? ARE YOU ALLOWED TO KEEP
HIM LIKE THIS? BELIEVE ME, WE’RE NOT FORGETTING
ANYONE’S RIGHTS. WE JUST WANT TO CATCH THE
BAD GUYS, THAT’S ALL. WELL, JAMAL IS NOT
ONE OF THEM. THEN HE’S GOT NOTHING
TO WORRY ABOUT. I KNOW YOU. THE RESTAURANT, WITH
THE COFFEE CAKE. THAT’S RIGHT! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? ONE OF MY EMPLOYEES IS HERE,
BUT I CAN’T GET ANY INFORMATION. COME BACK HERE. IT WOULDN’T HAPPEN TO
BE JAMAL AL JABALI? YES! CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT’S
HAPPENED? HE FITS THE DESCRIPTION
OF A SUSPECT. AND SO FAR, WE CAN’T CONFIRM WHO
HE IS OR WHERE HE WAS AT THE TIME OF THE BURGLARY. DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN? YEAH. HE OWNS CROSSROADS CAFE. DID THE SUSPECT SAY
HE WORKED THERE? ROSA, YOU’RE GIVING
ME A HEADACHE. FINALLY! ANY LUCK? NO. WE’VE BEEN ALL OVER TOWN. OH, THIS IS TERRIBLE. YOU’RE TELLING ME. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO EXPLAIN
TO MY MOTHER THAT I LOST HER PARENTS. YOU DIDN’T LOSE THEM. THEY GOT LOST. THE SAME THING. MAYBE YOU SHOULD CALL 9-1-1. UNLESS YOUR GRANDPARENTS ARE IN
SOME KIND OF DANGER, THIS PROBABLY ISN’T CONSIDERED
AN EMERGENCY. IT WILL BE WHEN MY
MOTHER GETS HERE. WAIT A MINUTE, HENRY. YOU KNOW WHERE THAT BUS STOP
IS, THE ONE YOU TOOK YOUR GRANDPARENTS TO THIS MORNING? YEAH. WELL, THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY
PLACES THEY COULD HAVE GONE. WHAT YOU NEED IS A MAP. WHAT ABOUT THE MAP YOU USE
FOR YOUR DELIVERIES? OH, I GAVE TO MY GRANDPARENTS. WHAT ARE YOU DOING, JESS? WE DON’T NEED A MAP. I’M GOING TO MAKE ONE. WHAT DO YOU MEAN? ALL RIGHT, THIS IS
CROSSROADS CAFE. THE SENIOR CENTER WOULD
BE ABOUT HERE. THE BUS STOP SHOULD BE
RIGHT ABOUT THERE. NOW, DEPENDING ON THE
DIRECTION THE BUS WAS GOING IN– ROSA, CAN YOU HAND ME THAT
BOTTLE OF KETCHUP. COMING RIGHT UP. GOOD. THANKS. NOW, THIS BOTTLE REPRESENTS
THE BUS ROUTE. IF WE CONNECT BOTH ENDS TO
ALL THE OTHER POINTS– YOU’RE RIGHT, WE’RE GOING
TO NEED A MAP. OH, NO. DON’T WORRY. WE’LL GET ONE AT
THE NEWS STAND. DON’T SAY ANYTHING. PLEASE, JUST DON’T TELL HER. DON’T TELL WHO? HI, MOM. MRS. CHANG, HOW NICE
TO SEE YOU. WELL, THANK YOU. HENRY, WHERE ARE YOUR
GRANDPARENTS? YOUR FATHER’S PARKED OUTSIDE. MY GRANDPARENTS? OH, YOU MEAN GRANDMA
AND GRANDPA. YES, HENRY, THAT’S WHO I MEAN. WHERE ARE THEY? THEY JUST STEPPED OUT. WHERE EXACTLY DID THEY GO? THEY DIDN’T EXACTLY TELL ME. DO YOU KNOW WHEN THEY’LL
BE BACK? SOON, I THINK. I TOLD YOU I WOULD BE HERE
TO PICK THEM UP. WELL, I– MRS. CHANG, I’M JESS
WASHINGTON. HOW DO YOU DO? I’M GOING TO BE LEAVING
IN A LITTLE WHILE. WHY DON’T YOU LET ME DRIVE
HENRY’S GRANDPARENTS HOME. THAT WOULD BE A TERRIBLE
IMPOSITION. NOT AT ALL. PLEASE, I INSIST. WELL, ALL RIGHT THEN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. [speaking chinese] HENRY, WHAT DID SHE SAY? SOMETHING ABOUT STAYING IN MY
ROOM FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. [knocking] MR. BRASHOV. SIT DOWN. THIS HAS ALL BEEN A BIG
MISTAKE, BUT NO ONE BELIEVES ME. HEY, YOU’RE THE OWNER
OF THE CAFE. AND JAMAL IS A VALUED
EMPLOYEE OF MINE. YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW WHERE
HE WAS LAST NIGHT? WHEREVER JAMAL SAYS
HE WAS, HE WAS. I’M SORRY, BUT THAT’S
NOT GOOD ENOUGH. [knocking] YEAH. JAMAL AL JABALI. OCCUPATION– ENGINEER. WIFE– JIHAN AL BIALI. IT’S ALL HERE. YEAH, BUT IT DOESN’T
MEAN A THING. YOU COULD’VE STILL DONE
THE BURGLARY. BUT I WAS HOME LAST NIGHT. RIGHT NOW ALL WE HAVE IS
YOUR WORD FOR THAT. AFRAID THAT’S JUST
NOT GOOD ENOUGH. WAIT A MINUTE. JAMAL CALLED ME LAST NIGHT. WHAT TIME? IT MUST HAVE BEEN
AROUND 11:30. I REMEMBER BECAUSE I HAD JUST
FINISHED WATCHING THE NEWS. SO HE CALLED YOU. HE COULD HAVE PLACED THE
CALL FROM ANYWHERE. NO, I AM POSITIVE HE WAS HOME. WHAT MAKES YOU SO SURE? BECAUSE ME EAR STILL HURTS
FROM LISTENING TO JAMAL’S BABY CRYING. SORRY, MR. BRASHOV. I TOLD YOU SHE WAS SICK. OK, BUDDY, LOOKS LIKE YOU
STORY CHECKS OUT. YOU’RE FREE TO GO. THAT’S IT? YEP. I JUST NEEDED TO KNOW WHO

NOT VERY HUNGRY. WHAT HAPPENED OUT
THERE, JAMAL? I DON’T EVEN KNOW
WHERE TO BEGIN. WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU? HE SHOULD FILE A COMPLAINT. HE SHOULD PUT IT ALL BEHIND
HIM AND FORGET ABOUT IT. I THINK– I THINK I JUST WANT TO PRETEND
THIS WHOLE DAY NEVER HAPPENED. YOU MEAN YOU’RE JUST GOING TO
FORGET ABOUT THE WHOLE THING? I DON’T BELIEVE IT. AT LEAST NOW I KNOW WHAT IT’S
LIKE TO BE TREATED BADLY JUST BECAUSE OF THE WAY YOU LOOK. I HEAR YOU. I’M LOOKING FOR HENRY CHANG. THAT’S ME. [speaking chinese] I KNOW, I KNOW. [speaking chinese] I’M JUST GLAD YOU’RE BOTH OK. HOW WERE YOU ABLE TO
UNDERSTAND THEM? I WENT TO CHINESE LANGUAGE
SCHOOL AS A KID. I REMEMBER ENOUGH TO GET BY. I FOUND THEM WANDERING
OUT IN THE STREET. THEY KNEW YOU WORKED SOMEWHERE
AROUND HERE, SO WE’VE BEEN MAKING A BLOCK BY
BLOCK SEARCH. HENRY. [speaking chinese] AH. MY GRANDFATHER WANTS TO THANK
THIS KIND GENTLEMAN. OH. [speaking chinese] ARE YOU SURE THERE ISN’T
SOMETHING WE COULD GET FOR YOU BEFORE YOU LEAVE? THANKS. I SHOULD REALLY GET
BACK TO WORK. WHAT ABOUT A BLUEBERRY MUFFIN
OR A PIECE OF COFFEE CAKE? ACTUALLY, COFFEE CAKE
SOUNDS GREAT. HERE, HAVE A SEAT. THANKS. [speaking chinese] I’LL GIVE YOU THAT
RIDE I PROMISED. HENRY, WHAT WERE YOUR
GRANDPARENTS SAYING? THEY THINK YOU SHOULD
GIVE ME A RAISE. [coughing] OFFICER, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? I’M FINE. I GUESS MY CHINESE IS WORSE
THAN I THOUGHT.
