[the police are looking for Tommy after he has a fight with Philip Griswald and then injures Philip's father]

Dave Connell:
Don't worry, Drina. He knows his way around - he can take care of himself.
Drina Gordon:
He can take care of himself too well. How can he have done such a thing? Where does he learn about knives and...
Dave Connell:
He had an expert teacher.
[refers to Martin]

Dave Connell:
Anyway it's not hard to learn in a place like this.
Drina Gordon:
But he's not a bad kid - not really bad. He never has been.
Dave Connell:
The famous 'Baby Face' Martin used to live on this block. He wasn't such a bad kid either at first. He was smart and brave and decent... at first.
Drina Gordon:
Like Tommy, you mean. Ever since he was a little kid I've tried to teach him what's right. I don't know what else to do - I've tried to bring him up decent.
Dave Connell:
Aw, what chance have they got against all this? They gotta fight for a place to play, fight for a little extra somethin' to eat, fight for everything. They get used to fightin'. "Enemies of society" it says in the papers... why not? What've they got to be so friendly about?

00:00:00.429 --> 00:00:02.301
Yeah, I know. I've been all over.
00:00:03.911 --> 00:00:05.913
Don't worry, Drina. He knows his way around.
00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:07.048
He can take care of himself.
00:00:07.567 --> 00:00:09.569
He can take care of himself too well.
00:00:09.656 --> 00:00:11.223
How could he have done such a thing?
00:00:11.031 --> 00:00:12.876
Where does he learn about knives and..
00:00:12.963 --> 00:00:15.705
He had an expert teacher.
00:00:15.792 --> 00:00:19.001
Anyway, it's not hard to learn in a place like this.
00:00:19.187 --> 00:00:21.001
But he's not a bad kid. Not really bad.
00:00:21.102 --> 00:00:23.583
He never has been.
00:00:23.067 --> 00:00:25.672
The famous Baby Face Martin used to live on this block.
00:00:25.759 --> 00:00:27.717
He wasn't such a bad kid either, at first.
00:00:27.804 --> 00:00:31.001
He was smart and brave and decent, at first.
00:00:31.156 --> 00:00:33.158
Like Tommy, you mean.
00:00:33.245 --> 00:00:35.016
Ever since he was a little kid I've tried to teach him
00:00:35.247 --> 00:00:36.683
what's right. I don't know what else to do.
00:00:36.077 --> 00:00:38.293
I've tried to bring him up decent.
00:00:38.038 --> 00:00:40.382
What chance have they got against all this?
00:00:40.469 --> 00:00:41.731
They've got to fight for a place to play
00:00:41.818 --> 00:00:42.993
fight for a little extra something to eat
00:00:43.998 --> 00:00:44.003
fight for everything.
00:00:44.169 --> 00:00:45.779
They get used to fighting.
00:00:45.866 --> 00:00:48.303
Enemies of society, it says in the papers.
00:00:48.039 --> 00:00:52.999
Why not? What have they got to be so friendly about?
00:00:52.133 --> 00:00:53.874
It didn't do those things to you.
00:00:53.961 --> 00:00:57.269
Didn't it? Well, it did enough to me, the other way.
00:00:57.356 --> 00:00:59.793
It made them accept it and get tough about it.
00:00:59.088 --> 00:01:01.882
It made me into a fool.
00:01:01.969 --> 00:01:04.999
I spent my life dreaming about tearing these places down.
00:01:06.999 --> 00:01:08.001
Well, I found out today.
00:01:08.889 --> 00:01:10.456
I saw myself and these rotten holes
00:01:10.001 --> 00:01:13.241
we live in through somebody else's eyes.
00:01:13.328 --> 00:01:15.504
I wanted to tear them down with my fingers.
00:01:17.001 --> 00:01:19.999
Yeah, you always talked about that
00:01:20.998 --> 00:01:21.336
how you were going to tear all this down
00:01:21.423 --> 00:01:23.208
and all the other places like them.
00:01:23.295 --> 00:01:24.687
How you were going to build a decent world
00:01:24.774 --> 00:01:26.776
where people could live decent and be decent.
00:01:26.863 --> 00:01:28.517
But now you want them down just so she won't see them
00:01:28.604 --> 00:01:30.001
'cause they're not pretty for her to see.
00:01:30.389 --> 00:01:32.521
All it means to you now is whether or not you get her.
00:01:32.608 --> 00:01:34.001
Well, go on and get her. And forget all this.
00:01:35.953 --> 00:01:36.001
And if you can forget, it's all you were ever good for
00:01:36.395 --> 00:01:37.001
in the first place!
00:01:56.241 --> 00:01:57.001
Tommy.
00:02:03.248 --> 00:02:04.858
Tommy. It's alright.
00:02:27.184 --> 00:02:28.999
I got to beat it soon, Drina. I can't hang around.
00:02:29.012 --> 00:02:30.999
What did you do it for, Tommy?
00:02:30.001 --> 00:02:32.102
I didn't mean to hurt him that way.
00:02:32.999 --> 00:02:33.999
He was twistin' my arm and callin' the cops.
00:02:33.001 --> 00:02:36.999
But a knife. They'll send you to jail.
00:02:36.001 --> 00:02:40.589
Yeah. They gotta catch me first.
00:02:40.999 --> 00:02:42.001
- Got to run away, Drina. - Where are you gonna run to?
00:02:42.809 --> 00:02:45.001
I have plenty of places to hitch to. Lots of guys do.
00:02:45.202 --> 00:02:47.292
Oh, don't talk so crazy. What are you gonna eat?
00:02:47.999 --> 00:02:48.815
Where you gonna sleep? How're you gonna get along?
00:02:48.999 --> 00:02:50.251
- You're just a kid. - I'll get along some way.
00:02:50.999 --> 00:02:51.001
I don't know.
