Behind The Scenes
Friends are the family you choose.
You are not invited to my birthday party!
What's rule number one?
Tyler, I am going to give you all of my wishes for my birthday.
Maybe we could be friends and buddies... bro dogs... and chill. Have a good time!
You might not be saying the word 'retard', alright, I'll give you that, but you're damn sure as making him feel retarded.
You got a good-guy heart. You can't do shit about it, that's just who you are. You're a hero.
I can't be a hero because I am a Down's syndrome.
What's that got to do with your heart?
[crossing the river]
Am I gonna die?
Yeah, you're gonna die, it's a matter of time. That ain't the question. The question's, whether they're gonna have a good story to tell about you when you're gone. Now, don't be a bitch. Let's go.
Blind Jasper John:
There are sheep in this world and there are wolves in this world. And I know that you two boys are just two weary travelers who have lost your way. So, we are going to clean you up right with a baptism.
While you've been doing paperwork we've been doing something called living, ain't that right, bud?
You have a young boy with Down syndrome in the middle of nowhere.
I'm the one who's been taking care of him because you can't do it unless you put him in a cage.
Is she a good dog?
Good enough. She don't run away, so I guess that makes her mine.
I could have you arrested for kidnapping, okay?
Oh, you're going to have me arrested for kidnapping? How do you- how do you figure? You can't have me arrested. He's a runaway. Can't kidnap a runaway. Come on, genius. You said GW, didn't you?
I'm sure I could find some reason to arrest you.
