But, it was not until the airing of one very emotional episode titled, “Papa’s got a brand new excuse.” In this episode Smith’s father comes to visit him after a 14 year absent and promises to spend as much time with him before the summer ends. Of course Smith was beyond excited until his “father” makes yet another excuse. After been stood up for what seemed like 100th time, Smith confides in his Uncle Phil, “how come he don’t want me man?” The amount of emphasis on the emotion in his voice and the tears that rolled down his face sent chills down everyone’s spine. It was a feeling that some could relate to and if you could not you still felt saddened. This is one of those episodes that could be watched several times, and that feeling will still be there.

Throughout many points of the movie it was showing his past and showing how his parents were arguing all the time. It captured how their arguing affected him and his sister and how it distanced them. He is seen multiple times acting out what seem to be arguments his parents had. He went to the wild to get away from that and sort his feelings towards them.
