[KNOCKING ON WALL, CABINETS SLAM]

OH, LOOK.

HEY, HEY, LOOK...

YANKEE STADIUM, MAN.

WE CAN WATCH THE GAME FROM HERE.

>> OH!

>> THAT'’S COOL.

>> Carita: O.K., UH, MR. DIAZ, IT'’S $201 A MONTH.

>> UH-HUH.

>> AND UTILITIES INCLUDED, FIRST AND LAST MONTH'’S SECURITY.

THERE'’S THREE BEDROOMS DOWN THE HALL.

THIS IS IT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

>> WELL, IT'’S NOT EXACTLY WHERE GOD LEFT HIS SHOES, BUT, BUT IT'’LL DO.

>> UH, YOU CAN ACTUALLY MOVE IN TODAY.

>> THAT'’S GREAT, THAT'’D BE GREAT.

>> IF YOU'’RE HANDY, YOU COULD... MMM, FIX IT UP, DO SOMETHING WITH IT.

>> YEAH, I KNOW.

IT'’S, PUT A LITTLE MUSCLE TO IT, MAYBE PAINT IT, YOU KNOW?

>> YEAH.

>> CHANGE THE FLOORS A BIT.

I COULD DO SOMETHING WITH THAT.

ABSOLUTELY.

>> YEAH...

WELL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL.

UM, WHY DON'’T WE GO BACK TO MY OFFICE AND WE CAN GET THE PAPERWORK FILLED OUT.

>> YEAH. >> IT'’S CHRISTMAS EVE, I KNOW YOU'’D LIKE TO BE IN.

>> HOW ABOUT THAT, HUH?

YEAH, I WOULD LOVE THAT.

YOU SAW THAT, MAN? >> I KNOW.

>> HOW GREAT IS THAT?

FILL THIS OUT.

>> WHAT IS THIS?

YOU NEED A, NEED A PEN?

[PHONE RINGS] SIR, YOU NEED A, YOU NEED A PEN?

YOU ALL RIGHT?

>> YEAH.

YOU KNOW WHAT, DO YOU MIND IF I, IF I FILLED IT OUT RIGHT OUTSIDE?

BE JUST A SECOND.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> THANK YOU.

COME WITH ME.

[MUSIC PLAYS FAINTLY, PAGES FLIPPING]

HERE, FILL THAT OUT.

>> WHY?

>> JUST FILL IT OUT.

>> WHY CAN'’T YOU DO IT?

>> UH, BECAUSE MY WRIST IS KILLING ME FROM THE LAST FIGHT, THAT'’S WHY.

IT IS.

MY, MY WRIST IS KILLING ME.

WHAT, JUST FILL IT OUT, ALL RIGHT?

AND THEN, ANYTHING YOU DON'’T UNDERSTAND, JUST ASK ME, ALL RIGHT?

[MUSIC CONTINUES] HERE'’S YOUR APPLICATION.

AND HERE'’S THE $400.

WELL, ACTUALLY, IT'’S, IT'’S, IT'S, UH, $398.

BUT, UH, I'’LL GET YOU THE TWO BUCKS IN ABOUT TWO DAYS, ALL RIGHT?

>> [LAUGHS] O.K., THAT'’S FINE.

YOU DIDN'’T FILL OUT THE EMPLOYMENT SECTION.

>> RIGHT, BECAUSE, UH, I'’M IN BETWEEN JOBS RIGHT NOW.

I'’M, I'M A BOXER.

>> ONE OF THE REQUIREMENTS IN QUALIFYING FOR AN APARTMENT HERE IS THAT YOU HAVE SOME FORM OF INCOME.

>> YEAH, NO, I DO, BUT I DO.

I DO, I JUST WORK OFF THE BOOKS, THAT'’S ALL.

SO IT'’S, LIKE CONSTRUCTION AND, YOU KNOW, WORK HASN'’T BEEN STEADY LATELY, SO...

>> UNFORTUNATELY, I CAN'’T PUT DOWN THAT YOU WORK OFF THE BOOKS.

>> RIGHT, RIGHT.

I'’M GONNA HAVE A FEW JOBS LINED UP RIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS.

>> THAT WON'’T WORK.

MANAGEMENT IS VERY STRICT AND SINCE YOU DON'’T HAVE A GUARANTEED FORM OF INCOME, I CAN'’T PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION.

I WILL HAVE TO PUT YOU BACK ON THE LIST.

>> [LAUGHS] WHAT...

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

>> I CAN'’T GIVE YOU THE APARTMENT UNLESS YOU ARE PRESENTLY EMPLOYED, ONTHE BOOKS.

YOUR NAME WILL GO BACK ON THE LIST, AND WHEN ANOTHER APARTMENT BECOMES AVAILABLE, I'’LL CONTACT YOU.

>> MY FAMILY, MY FAMILY'’S IN A SHELTER.

AND I CAN'’T DO THAT ANYMORE.

WE JUST CAN'’T DO THAT ANYMORE.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?

>> I'’M SORRY, I'M SORRY, SIR.

I DON'’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TELL YOU.

>> YOU CAN TELL ME THAT THE APARTMENT IS OURS, AND WE CAN MOVE IN THERE TODAY.

>> I CAN'’T DO THAT.

>> C'’MON, IT'S CHRISTMAS.

IT'’S CHRISTMAS, GIVE ME A BREAK.

CAN YOU CUT ME A BREAK, PLEASE?

I MEAN, I'’LL PROMISE YOU, I'’LL HAVE A JOB BY THE FIRST OF THE YEAR.

I CAN GUARANTEE IT.

>> I'’M SORRY.

THERE'’S NOTHING I CAN DO.

I HAVE A FAMILY TOO, AND IF I PUT YOU DOWN FOR THE APARTMENT AND GET CAUGHT, I CAN LOSE MY JOB.

>> JUSTIN, WAIT FOR ME OUTSIDE.

>> [QUIETLY] GIVE HER HELL.

>> YEAH.

LET ME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU, LET ME EXPLAIN MY SITUATION TO YOU, MAYBE.

MAYBE YOU'’LL UNDERSTAND.

ME AND MY FAMILY, WE BEEN HAVING SOME HARD MONTHS AND ALL WE WANT IS TO HAVE AN APARTMENT FOR CHRISTMAS, THAT'’S ALL.

THAT'’S ALL WE WANT, AND LOOK, I UNDERSTAND YOUR POSITION.

I KNOW WHAT YOU'’RE IN, BUT IMAGINE HAVING CHILDREN AND SLEEPING IN A DIRTY SHELTER ON A COLD FLOOR FOR THREE MONTHS, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?

>> I UNDERSTAND, I UNDERSTAND-- >> NO, BUT ARE YOU IMAGINING THAT FOR ME?

>> YES, I UNDERSTAND YOUR POSITION.

MANY OF THE TENANTS WHO LIVE HERE WERE IN YOUR SHOES AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER, BUT LIKE I SAID, THERE'’S NOTHING I CAN DO.

>> RIGHT.

[♪...] [CLEARS THROAT]

NOTHING YOU CAN DO.

YOU KNOW, LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING.

HOW MANY OF THOSE TENANTS THAT WERE IN MY SHOES WENT INTO THE GULF WAR AND FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY?

HOW MANY OF THEM, HUH?

>> EXCUSE ME?

>> IT'’S A SIMPLE QUESTION: HOW MANY OF THEM WENT AND FOUGHT?

I WENT AND JOINED UP AND FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY WHEN I WAS

18 YEARS OLD, O.K.?

AND YOU'’RE TELLING ME THAT IT'S O.K. FOR ME TO RISK MY LIFE, RISK MY LIFE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, BUT YOU DON'’T HAVE TO PUT ANYTHING ON THE LINE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY.

THAT'’S WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME, RIGHT?

>> IT'’S NOT LIKE THAT.

>> OH, YEAH... YEAH.

IT ISLIKE THAT.

IT'’S JUSTLIKE THAT.

>> WAIT, WAIT, UH...

COME BACK, PLEASE.

DO YOU GET A CHECK FROM THE GOVERNMENT EACH MONTH?

>> I DON'’T GET ANYTHING.

I DON'’T GET A DIME, I DON'’T GET NOTHIN'.

>> LOOK, I LEAVE THE OFFICE AT 6:00 TONIGHT.

IF YOU CAN FIND A JOB BY THEN, THE APARTMENT'’S YOURS.

THAT'’S THE BEST I CAN DO.

OTHERWISE, AND I'’M SORRY...

BUT I'’LL HAVE TO CALL THE NEXT PERSON ON THE LIST.

[♪...] >> THANK YOU...

AND WHAT YOU'’RE DOING.

>> O.K.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[♪...] [DISTANT SIREN WAILS...]

>> SO WHAT HAPPENED IN THERE?

[♪...] SO WE DIDN'’T GET IT?

>> NO, WE DIDN'’T GET IT, EINSTEIN, NOT YET, ANYWAY.

>> WHERE WE GOING NOW?

>> TO GET A JOB.

>> WHY?

>> WHY? BECAUSE YOU NEED A JOB TO GET AN APARTMENT, THAT'’S WHY.

>> WHY DIDN'’T YOU TELL HER YOU ALREADY HAVE A JOB, MAKE SOMETHING UP?

>> AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SHE FINDS OUT THAT I LIED, HUH?

>> WE'’LL ALREADY HAVE THE KEYS.

>> RIGHT, AND WE GET THROWN OUT OF ANOTHER APARTMENT-- THAT'’D BE JUST GREAT.

>> NO, NO-- WHY CAN'’T YOU JUST-- NO, YOU COULD-- ACTUALLY, YOU COULD JUST TELL HER-- >> HEY GUY, LET'’S JUST-- YOU'RE NOT MAKING ANY SENSE, RIGHT?

COULD YOU JUST SHUT UP FOR A LITTLE WHILE, PLEASE?

>> DON'’T TELL ME TO SHUT UP.

YOU SHUT UP.

I'’M JUST TRYING TO HELP.

>> HEY, YOU KNOW HOW YOU CAN HELP? >> HOW?

>> BY SHUTTIN'’ UP.

[SUBWAY DOOR SIGNAL CHIMES] >> Man on P.A.: STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS.

>> COME ON, IT'’S GOOD.

BE GOOD FOR YOU, HAVE A BITE.

>> WOW. >> Man: THE BEST.

>> THAT'’S GREAT STUFF.

>> YOU WANT MORE?

>> NO, NO, NO, I'’M GREAT, IT HIT THE SPOT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

LOOK, I KNOW YOU GUYS ARE VERY BUSY AND I DON'’T WANT TO TAKE UP YOUR TIME, BUT THE REASON I'’M HERE IS... I'M A BOXER.

OR YOU... OR, OR, OR WOULD YOU RATHER BE WITH YOUR REAL POPS, HUH?

YOU THINK YOU'’RE BETTER OFF WITH HIM?

WHY DON'’T YOU GO BACK, MAN, SO HE COULD BEAT YOU UP FOR NO REASON EVERY FUCKIN'’ DAY, HUH?

>> SHUT UP. JUST SHUT UP.

>> WHAT, NOW YOU DON'’T HAVE AN ANSWER, BIG MAN? HUH?

YOU HAD A BIG MOUTH, BUT WHEN SOMEBODY FIGHTS BACK YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY?

IS THAT WHAT HAPPENED?

>> I'’M A BIGGER MAN THAN YOU.

>> THAT SO?

>> YEAH, IT IS SO.

I CAN MAKE MORE MONEY BEGGING IN AN HOUR THAN YOU CAN IN A WHOLE DAY.

>> WHOA, YOU'’RE A BIG MAN. OOH.
