money on this game?
<<<JIM>>>> doesn't answer. He looks back at the screen . LAMAR sinks a three-pointer (Hand Snap-Thigh Slap).
JIM-- He's in my class.
Is he good at English?
JIM>>> thinks, weights it, and then says:
Do you want to be the kind of man that goes to his mother, to cover your gambling debts?
<<<JIM>>> thinks about it.
<<<JIM>>> Wrenching, Cracking Knuckles, Jim is going to be styling if he plays his cards right!
You never should have married her. Why did you?
<<<JIM>>>Again Thinking! His right hand folds his thumb positioned under chin, RT - index finger pointed LT side of nose - He smacks his lips with a drawn out sizzle!
JIM-- Because The Odds Weren't good.
How bad is the trouble you're in?
JIM-- I'm always in trouble.
I mean: Do you still need the money?
I don't know when to believe you anymore.
<<<JIM>>>after a complex look at his mother reaches for a pad of paper and writes on it and folds it and hands it to her.
What is this?
JIM-- What I owe.
(trembling with rage she gets up).
How is that possible?
JIM-- It was the same as marriage. I
gambled, I lost.
Marriage is in the real world. It's not a game of chance.
- JIM-- Now you're talking crazy.
- He eats cereal again.
What will they do to you if you don't pay?
<<<JIM>>>Looks at her.
- JIM-- Break every bone in my body. Or, go
- after the family.
- <<<ROBERTA>>>whacks him across the face.
- <<<JIM>>>takes it.
This isn't something you can't help.
You're doing it on purpose.
JIM-- There's going to be a time when I want something again. When I won't allow myself too be seen in this condition.
- But it isn't now,
- and it isn't up to you,
- or anything you
- or anybody says!
She sits holding the paper. Then:
Are you degraded enough to go to the bank with your mother?
