I feel bad for Jerry...He's six like I was when Momma died...
Cheerful, helpful and grateful...
Good news, boys! You both will be going to your new foster homes!
Why is she believing his lies?
The Terrible New Foster Home
Mom...all I was doing...was trying to help him...and look what he did!
Hahaha! I think he wet the bed!
Bud and Jerry got told that they are going to new foster homes. Jerry wasn't too happy. Bud told him that it'll be okay. But, he didn't actually think it will be okay. Jerry was six years old. That was the age Bud was when his mother died.
At The Hooverville
Oh man...this girl is kind of cute!
She died when I was six, sir. I was in a foster home, and it was awful. So, I was trying to escape.
When he came, a fight started. Todd's mother came in. Todd told her lies, and she believed them! She said that Bud messed with his asthma. They made Bud sleep in a shed with a puddle of blood.
The Kind Gentleman
Why are you all alone on a night like this? Your mother must be worried sick about you!
He made Todd wet the bed, then he escaped! He went to a Hooverville. He saw Bugs, and he talked to him during the train ride. He hopped off the train, and went on his way!
Not The Father
Why are you calling me that? I am not your father!
Bud met a girl named Deza Malone. He kind of had a crush on her. They even kissed! Bud left, but he missed the train. So, he had to walk all alone.
Oh my! He's a cute one! I think I might want to kiss him!
He then met Lefty Lewis. He asked him to get in the car, and he did as he said. Lefty Lewis gave him some food, and when he asked about Bud's parents, he was shocked because Bud said that Herman E. Calloway was his father.
Bud met Herman E. Calloway, who he thought was his father. Bud called him dad, but then Herman said that he wasn't his father, Bud was very shocked. Steady Eddie introduced the rest of the band to him. Then, he decided to take him out to eat.
