  • Town is just a few miles away. It's closer to work
  • Exposition
  • You think you to good for us
  • Inciting Incident 
  • You stepped on my foot! Your going to pay!
  • Rising Action
  • Uncle Luis is angry at Papa because Papa decided to move to the city. He accuses them of being to good for them just because he finished school and had a job. Papa explains that he will be closer to work, and that it's not far from them. Grandma cuts off Uncle Louis and tells him that Papa is a grown man and can do whatever he wants,  even if it means moving farther away from the orchard. 
  • Climax
  • Get him!
  • The narrator is confronted by Chango, a tough third grader, and his gang at recess. He accused the narrator of stepping on his foot, and forced him to speak Spanish. When Chango challenged him, the narrator tripped him over his leg, and earned their respect. 
  • Falling Action
  • The narrator joined Chango's gang called Los Indios. The narrator would do chores around the house to earn money for the movie theater, where he would let his gang in the back for free. They loved to see Spanish movies with characters who looked and spoke like them 
  • Resolution
  • The narrator and his gang would ambush the 'enemy'- public school kids who weren't Hispanic- after school for fun. After days of chasing the one they called "John Wayne", they cough him and threw a couple punches. After he got away, the narrator realized 'John Wayne' was his neighbor. 
  • Since "John Wayne" is his neighbor, his mom suggest that he should go to the movie with the narrator. The narrator is surprised he didn't tell his mom about getting beat up. So he relunctantly brings him along with him, but he is nervous about having a cowboy meet their hispanic gang. The narrator lets them in, and they tell 'John Wayne' how to sound and speak Hispanic while they watched the Spanish movie. 
  • What is he doing here?
  • The narrator is older and reflects back. He explains how his perspective has changed, and the Hispanic actors who played the characters he saw as a kid did not act like their counterpart in real life. He also learned that people of different cultures don't act the way portrayed in movies.
