... let me have that ten dollars. I'll give it back to you.

Bono, Troy, Rose, and Lyons are in the backyard on the porch. Lyons, Troy's son, came over to ask for money. Lyons only communicates with his father when he needs money. I chose this this quote because it shows how stubborn and how Troy feels he works too hard to just hand out his money. It shows conflict with Lyons and Troy.
Cory, Troy, and Rose are talking and Cory wants to play football and Troy doesnt want him too because he wants Cory to be successful and not waste time on sports. After Troy's experience with sports he doesnt want Cory to go through the same thing.
Cory and Rose are talking in the backyard. Cory tells Rose he's not going to Troy's funeral. Rose explains to him that's disrespectful to his father but Cory explains he needs to rid of Troy's shadow and needs to say " No " to him at least once. Cory's grown more independent and willing to say no to Troy.
