Please, Lord, grant us good in the world...
and good in the hereafter
and save us from the hellfire.
Hala! You missed fajr.
What are you still doing?
Are you going to skip morning prayers every day now?
What's wrong? She slept in.
Not in this house.
Four letters. Poems of praise.
Ten letters. Conducive to success.
Let her eat.
- Auspicious. - Auspicious.
What did I tell you?
She gets her smarts from me.
She'll be late because of your silly crossword.
It's not silly.
Didn't you already miss the bus?
I told you not to get that skateboard.
She's skating without a helmet. What if something happens?
Let her live. She's not breaking any laws.
As long as she's not spending time with boys, she's okay.
Am I picking you up after school?
Everyone to their seats, please. Writing journals out.
"What she feared most wasn't the words--
傷人 刻薄 還有尖銳的話語
hurtful words, mean ones, or the ones that could cut.
No, she could manage that.
What she couldn't manage were the spaces between the words,
the judgment, and the subtext,
what was left unsaid.
She feared the inaccessible, invisible world
那些幾乎 本該 馬上 應該說出口
of the almost-said, should've-said, would've-said, could've-said,
She feared the terrifying abyss of the unknown,
a shapeless, dark thing that she could sense
in a quiet, uncomfortable pause at the end of a sentence...
or right before the beginning of a new one.
It was in the quiet, in the dark,
in the moments alone,
that she could see herself most clearly."
Is there something you want to say, Mr. Byer?
Well done, Hala.
You know, everyone will be reading from their journals
for the rest of the week,
so I'd be prepared for that.
Order's not gonna be alphabetical.
So for homework...
What's yours? What does it mean?
Why should we care?
Out of my classroom!
Okay, the big question is,
how do we spend our summer after we graduate?
Not touch a book for three months.
I've decided I'm dyeing my hair,
I'm gonna get a tattoo, I'm gonna pierce my nose.
Your mom's never gonna let you.
I'm 18. They can't say anything.
Plus, I'm moving out.
I actually like your mom.
Well, she likes you too
cause you get good grades and make me look bad.
No, I don't.
This summer you're teaching me how to skateboard.
If you teach me how to drive.
來吧 姑娘們 跑快點
Come on, ladies, let's go!
快點 跑啊 加油 姑娘們
Hustle! Let's go! Come on, ladies!
May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be upon you.
Careful, it's still hot.
I told you.
Put the phone away. Why won't you eat?
Our firm doesn't want a trial
but it could be a big win for us.
I don't have a choice.
You always have a choice.
Everything else, in Allah's hands.
Okay. You are right.
Hala, how was school?
Good. The same, you know.
You're always talking with your dad.
But with me, you go completely quiet.
When have I done that?
Your attitude totally changes.
No, it doesn't.
- See what I mean - Why are you picking on her?
- Leave her alone. - Fine.
So, what have you been reading?
We just finished The Stranger.
And now we're reading A Doll's House.
The play by Henrik Ibsen.
Do you get to read War and Peace?
We had an entire class on that one in college.
Yeah, next semester.
There's more real human experience in that one book
than anything else you will ever read.
I'll tell Tolstoy you said that.
Okay, the food's getting cold.
In a recent poll, when asked whether immigrants
were an important part of American identity,
75% said yes.
I think you need to be a little more understanding about Mom.
你還想怎樣 她是你媽媽 那是她的責任
What do you expect? She's your mom. That's her job.
Has she always been this way?
She is this way because of you.
You know, when I first met your mom
her head was full of ideas.
She had a real adventurous spirit.
When my parents were looking for someone for me
in Karachi years ago,
they wanted someone who was loyal and trustworthy.
And that's how we found your mom.
She had a whole life
before she met me, before she had you.
So your parents chose Mom?
That's how it happened there.
Do you love her?
