Storyboard Text

  • “Tell him I’ll take a thousand of his bullets before I let this indecency take place.” (Pg. 122)
  • Heroic and Courageous
  • Checkpoint (Mahipar)
  • Successful and Triumphant
  • My Orphanage
  • Admired and Respected
  • “Do you have to always be the hero? I thought, my heart fluttering. Can’t you just let it go for once? But I knew he couldn’t - it wasn’t in his nature." (Pg. 122)
  • Proud and Self-reliant
  • But despite Baba's successes, people were  always doubting him. They told Baba that running a business wasn't in his blood and he should study law like his father. So Baba proved them all wrong by not only running his own business but becoming one of the richest merchants in Kabul. Baba and Rahim Khan built a wildly successful carpet-exporting business, two pharmacies, and a restaurant." (Pg. 16)
  • Unadaptable and Patriotic
  • “We rode in silence for about fifteen minutes before the young woman’s husband suddenly stood and did something I’d seen many others do before him: He kissed Baba’s hand.” (Pg. 124)
  • Feeble
  • “The same day he was hired, Baba and I went to our eligibility officer [...] Baba dropped the stack of food stamps on her desk. [...] And that was how Baba ended those humiliating food stamp moments at the cash register and alleviated one of his greatest fears: that an Afghan would see him buying food with charity money. Baba walked out of the welfare office like a man cured of a tumor.” (Pg. 138 )
  • "Thank you but I don't want. I work always. In Afghanistan I work, in America I work. Thank you very much, Mrs. Dobbins, but I don't like it free money." (Pg. 138)
  • "I don't care where he was born, he's Roussi," Baba said, grimacing like it was a dirty word. "His parents were Roussi, his grandparents were Roussi. I swear on your mother's face I'll break his arm if he tries to touch me." “Dr. Schneider's parents fled from Shorawi, don't you see? They escaped!" But Baba would hear none of it. Sometimes I think the only thing he loved as much as his late wife was Afghanistan, his late country." (Pg. 163)
  • “I remember that period as a time of many "firsts": The first time I heard Baba moan in the bathroom. The first time I found blood on his pillow. In over three years running the gas station, Baba had never called in sick. Another first. By Halloween of that year, Baba was getting so tired by mid-Saturday afternoon that he'd wait behind the wheel while I got out and bargained for junk.” (Pg. 166)
