We need to talk.
Wow. We need to talk, huh? Are you sure you're at a safe-enough distance?
Was... Was I just a poor, like, charity case for you, Karen? I mean, let's-save-the-homo type thing? I mean, I know my mom asked you to teach me...
...let's, let's, let's not get too close, okay, because YOU just might catch something, right?

I was a extra in the movie as one of the young martial arts kids in the movie. I was with the crew a lot of the movie and i saw a lot of the things that happened. It was also a lot of work. One day i was there we had to retake on scene like 6 times. It was a lot of fun to meet all the characters in real life and to be with people that are in other films such as Michael O'Laskey who has been in 3 other movies and has been a character in Power Rangers, Star Trek, Otward Bound, and The Mr.Show. All in all he was a very interesting guy. If you have any question on the movie or anything you would like to know that you have not found on this website give me a call or text at 970-520-9107.
