A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
[Officer Hyland] "Castillo." It's weird, isn't it? It's quiet, but it's strange. What can I tell you? Yeah, and Moreno is gone too. I have a situation. I'll call you back.
[Hyland's wife] Alright, Junior, you have to stay still. Kids say "hello."
[Officer Hyland] Wait, wait, wait, wait -- where are you going? Honey, what's going on?
[Hyland's wife] School's out. School's closed. I've got to shut down the construction site. Half of our people are missing. Can you believe this?
60% of California's construction workers are Latino.
[Hyland's wife] I figured you could watch them for a couple of hours.
[Officer Hyland] This is an office. We're in a very serious situation.
[Hyland's wife] Oh, fine! I'll just take them with me to the construction site. A loose beam will fall on their head, they'll die, and then we won't have to worry about daycare anymore.
[Hyland's wife] Oh, come on, Bubba.
Would you guys mind?
[Officers] No, go ahead.
[Hyland's wife] And Officer Carr, could we not play the Illegal's Coyote's game, please?
[Officer Carr] Yeah, alright.
[Hyland's wife] Okay, I gotta go. Look, Rowena was coughing last night, so here. And Junior did not eat his breakfast. Don't panic, I'm on my cell, I love you. Bye kids.
[Officer Carr] Come on, let's go see the bronco. We'll play Coyote and the Illegals. I'll be the Coyote.
[Jeff] Hi, Miss Gigi is ...
[Nurse] Aunt Gigi?
[Jeff] Yeah, she's not making any sense. She wants her own "Gigi Show." Can you give her something to calm her down?
[Nurse] Sure, she must be devastated. I'll take care of her.
[Jeff] Thank you.
