I'm leaving to New York , my sisters boyfriend is getting me a job at a restaurant.
Okay, you're not taking my son.
Chris goes to jail
Linda I need you to pick up Chris im in jail for unpaid parking tickets I wont be out till 9:30 tomorrow morning
Scanner fell out of subway
In this scene Linda says she is going to leave to New York with her sister to get a new job over there because they are struggling in San Francisco being a couple months behind with rent. I feel empathy for both the father and the son in this scene. I can relate to the son because i have had to be away from my parents before and it is hard , because they help you so much and he is still very young. I also feel empathy for Chris because he tries to make money for his family and it is still never enough. Another reason i am empathetic is because his partner is leaving and he is going to take care of a young child alone.
In this scene Chris was arrested for parking tickets failing to be paid. He then paid them in jail and was still not able to be released yet he called Linda and asked her to pick Chris up. Reasons i feel empathy for Chris is because he is worried about how his son is going to make it home. Another reason i am feeling empathy is because right now it feels like his son is all he has and he cannot help him.
This scene shows Chris running onto the subway and his scanner getting stuck and not making it on with him. Reasons this scene makes me feel empathy is because the scanners are his only way of income at the moment and to lose one can really affect the family. I can also relate because at a time my family and i were struggling with money as well as Chris's. This also wasn't the first time he has lost or misplaced a scanner so he is really angry and i've been in situations where i have lost something really valuable to me
