Umm.. I think it would be best If we used that money on a liquor store.
Not so sure what I'm gonna do with all this money.
Mama, I would like to use the money for medical school.
Hope my family loves our new home.
Don't let him win you over, don't let your pride down!
Lindner will be coming over to give us an offer for the house.
He better not let Lindner win him over.
The Younger family lived in a small apartment in Chicago. Big Walter recently died and left a $10,000 life insurance check that would arrive soon. Walter want's to use it for a liquor store, Beneatha want's to use it for medical school, and Mama doesn't know what she wants to do with the money. Ruth feels ill towards the end of the first scene, and she thought she was pregnant.
What is it Bobo!!!!
I have some bad news...
Walter felt that no one was listening to him. He wants to get ahead and life but Mama refuses to give him the money. Instead, Mama bought a house in an all-white neighborhood which might be dangerous.
Mama is right.. I can't let this go down like that.
Thanks for giving me a call back and thinking about my offer.
After Mama buys a house, she decides to give Walter the remaining $6,500 aside from the money for Beneatha's schooling, and to invest in the liquor store. The Younger family are visited by Karl Lindner, who offers them a significant amount of money to stay out of the neighborhood. They refuse his offer.
Can't wait to be heading to Nigeria with my family.
Bobo arries to the apartment and tells Walter that Willy took all of the money they gave him for the liquor store plan and took off. Also Walter never put aside the money for Beneatha's medical schooling like he was supposed to.
Walter decides to call Lindner and accept his offer in order to recover some of the money he had lost. Asagai arrives and ask Beneatha to marry him and move with him to Nigeria to be a doctor, which gives Beneatha hope. Mama thinks that if Walter is willing to make a deal with Lindner it will leave him with noting inside.
Walter realizes that he cannot trade his pride for money,and tells Lindner to get lost. The Youngers leave the apartment in a celebratory mood, and Mama returns to grab her plant, which represents her dream of happy, content family in a home they can call their own.
