Quote from Tonya

Adult Chris: [v.o.] I had to sneak out of the house, but as always, one little thing stood in my way.
Chris: Tonya.
Tonya: What?
Chris: I have to go out, and I don't want you to tell. How much?
Tonya: Ten dollars, plus you do laundry on my next turn.
Chris: Deal.


Quote from Chris

Adult Chris: [v.o.] Down at the police station, I needed to get Jerome out without getting myself thrown in.
Police Officer: What can I do for you, son?
Chris: I got a question. How can I get someone out of jail who shouldn't be in jail?
Police Officer: Two ways. You got to post bail or they got to be innocent.
Chris: Well, what if they're in jail for giving information that was wrong.
Police Officer: Well, bring us the person with the information that's right.
Chris: You mean a snitch?
Police Officer: I like to call them "the law's little helpers." Is there something you want to tell me?
Adult Chris: [v.o.] I had run out of options. The only way to get Jerome out of that dirty jail was to come clean.
Chris: Okay.

Quote from Chris

Adult Chris: [v.o.] After trying to not snitch on someone else, I had to finally snitch on myself.
Jerome: Man! Little dude! Am I glad to see you.
Police Officer: You're lucky your story checked out, son. Your friend could've gotten hurt in there.
Chris: You guys would have protected him, right?
Police Officer: No. And don't try running games on us again. We do this stuff for a living.
Chris: Am I going to jail?
Police Officer: You seem like a decent kid and there was no real harm done.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] Besides that guy that got shot.
Police Officer: So we're gonna forget this happened. [to Jerome] Now you, you seem like a criminal.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] That's because he is.
Police Officer: But we're gonna let you go, too.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] He'll be back.
Police Officer: You're lucky we got bigger fish to fry. Now, don't you knuckleheads let me catch you doing anything like this again.
Both: Yes, sir.
