Turner: Where are you gonna run now?
Shawn: What do you care?
Turner: I was beginning to think I didn’t care about anything.
Shawn: Yeah, fine, whatever. I gotta go.
Turner: Yeah, I know. I’ve been there. Someone reaches out to you and says they care about you, it’s easy to run.
Shawn: Look, I’m sure you got a lot of big emotional problems to work through, here, but I just need to find a place to sleep, okay?
Turner: I’ll do you one better. How about I give you a home?
Shawn: What, your place?
Turner: Yeah, my place.
Shawn: For how long? Three weeks and then you get sick of me?
Turner: Oh, I’m sick of you now, Hunter, but I’m still making the offer.
Shawn: Why?
Turner: ‘Cause I’m thinking I should do something for somebody else. I think I need that.
Shawn: You’re not gonna tell me what to do.
Turner: Somebody’s gotta.
Shawn: You’re not my dad!
Turner: I’m not trying to be! Look, I’m just offering you a roof and a window to crawl out of. Although it is five stories up.
Shawn: I like a challenge.
Turner: So do I.
