  • -THIS PRESENTATION IS BROUGHT TO YOU
  • 00:00:02.100 --> 00:00:04.140
  • BY THE FRIENDS OF THE AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:04.150 --> 00:00:07.100
  • - AND I FINALLY STARTED READING THE BIBLE SO I
  • 00:00:14.150 --> 00:00:16.190
  • COULD ARGUE WITH CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:00:16.200 --> 00:00:18.260
  • AND I SAID, 'THIS CAN'T BE TRUE.'
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:21.170
  • AND I THOUGHT EITHER JESUS WAS CRAZY
  • 00:00:21.180 --> 00:00:25.020
  • OR HE WAS A LIAR OR HE'S THE LORD.
  • 00:00:25.030 --> 00:00:29.030
  • -WHAT I SOMETIMES DO DURING ONE OF THESE SERIES
  • 00:00:33.090 --> 00:00:35.120
  • OF MEETINGS IS I JUST TAKE A SECTION OF TIME AND I
  • 00:00:35.130 --> 00:00:38.120
  • SHARE WITH YOU MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF HOW I CAME
  • 00:00:38.130 --> 00:00:41.260
  • TO THE CONCLUSIONS OF THE THINGS THAT I'M SHARING
  • 00:00:41.270 --> 00:00:45.080
  • WITH YOU AND KNOWING THE BACKGROUND
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:47.030
  • SOMETIMES HELPS.
  • 00:00:47.040 --> 00:00:49.010
  • I'D LIKE TO BEGIN WITH A VERSE FROM THE BIBLE
  • 00:00:49.020 --> 00:00:51.040
  • AND THIS ONE IS FROM THE FIRST BOOK OF PETER--
  • 00:00:51.050 --> 00:00:54.160
  • 1 PETER CHAPTER 2, VERSE 9,
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:57.050
  • "BUT YOU ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:01:01.040
  • PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, HIS OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE,
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:06.000
  • THAT YOU MAY PROCLAIM THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO CALLED
  • 00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:09.220
  • YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT;"
  • 00:01:09.230 --> 00:01:13.220
  • THE THEME OF WHAT I'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU THIS
  • 00:01:13.230 --> 00:01:16.080
  • MORNING IS VERY SIMPLE: THE WORLD IS LOOKING FOR
  • 00:01:16.090 --> 00:01:20.090
  • HAPPINESS, BUT MOST OF THE WORLD IS LOOKING IN
  • 00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:24.170
  • THE WRONG PLACES FOR HAPPINESS.
  • 00:01:24.180 --> 00:01:26.140
  • PEOPLE THINK THAT HAPPINESS COMES FROM FAME
  • 00:01:26.150 --> 00:01:29.220
  • AND FORTUNE, FROM HAVING ENOUGH FRIENDS OR
  • 00:01:29.230 --> 00:01:33.120
  • POPULARITY, OR FROM, YOU KNOW, JUST MATERIALISM OR
  • 00:01:33.130 --> 00:01:36.260
  • PHYSICAL SATISFACTION AND THOSE THINGS DON'T BRING
  • 00:01:36.270 --> 00:01:40.150
  • REAL LASTING HAPPINESS. NOW I CAME FROM A VERY
  • 00:01:40.160 --> 00:01:45.120
  • UNUSUAL SET OF PARENTS AND I'LL TAKE A MOMENT
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:48.230
  • AND SHARE ABOUT THAT. YOU EVER HEARD -
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:50.290
  • THAT'S MY MOM AND DAD - YOU EVER HEARD THE EXPRESSION
  • 00:01:51.000 --> 00:01:54.080
  • THAT OPPOSITES ATTRACT? IT'S STRANGE THAT THE
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:58.000
  • IRONY OF THAT - THAT SOMEHOW PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:01:58.010 --> 00:02:01.060
  • SO OPPOSITE END UP GETTING MARRIED.
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:04.050
  • I DON'T KNOW THAT IT WAS EVER MORE TRUE THAN WITH
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:06.020
  • MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER. MY MOTHER WAS JEWISH.
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:10.250
  • MY FATHER CAME FROM A BAPTIST BACKGROUND.
  • 00:02:10.260 --> 00:02:13.280
  • MY MOTHER WAS A DEMOCRAT. MY FATHER WAS A REPUBLICAN.
  • 00:02:13.290 --> 00:02:19.050
  • MY MOTHER WAS BORN IN NEW YORK CITY AND MY FATHER
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:23.130
  • WAS BORN IN A SMALL OKLAHOMA TOWN.
  • 00:02:23.140 --> 00:02:26.030
  • HE WAS A COUNTRY BOY. I MEAN, THEY WERE ABOUT AS
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:28.180
  • OPPOSITE AS YOU COULD BE. JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
  • 00:02:28.190 --> 00:02:32.150
  • DAD FOR A MOMENT: HE WAS BORN VERY POOR.
  • 00:02:32.160 --> 00:02:35.180
  • HE SOMEHOW GOT HIMSELF THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL AND
  • 00:02:35.190 --> 00:02:38.260
  • GOT SOME LOWER COLLEGE EXPERIENCE, DID FLIGHT
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:41.270
  • TRAINING - WAS VERY INTRIGUED WITH FLYING -
  • 00:02:41.280 --> 00:02:44.090
  • KNEW AMELIA EARHART AND CHARLES LINDBERGH AND SOME
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:47.030
  • OF THOSE PEOPLE. AFTER THE WAR HE BEGAN
  • 00:02:47.040 --> 00:02:49.280
  • A BUSINESS OF BUYING AND SELLING AND LEASING
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:52.230
  • AIRCRAFT UNTIL IT WAS THE LARGEST AIRCRAFT LEASING
  • 00:02:52.240 --> 00:02:56.000
  • BUSINESS IN THE WORLD - CALLED INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:02:56.010 --> 00:02:58.000
  • AIR LEASING - AND WAS ALSO VERY ACTIVE.
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:03:02.220
  • HE LIKED RACING CARS. HE'D WATER SKI - FLEW
  • 00:03:02.230 --> 00:03:07.150
  • PLANES - HAD A LOT OF MONEY, BUT HE WASN'T A
  • 00:03:07.160 --> 00:03:11.060
  • VERY HAPPY MAN AND JUST EVERYTHING WAS WORK.
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:14.220
  • I MEAN, HE'D WORK JUST REGULAR 16-HOUR DAYS BUT
  • 00:03:14.230 --> 00:03:17.170
  • THEN HE WOULD, PRETTY MUCH, DRINK HIMSELF
  • 00:03:17.180 --> 00:03:20.080
  • TO SLEEP - STARTING AT LUNCH HE WOULD HAVE HIS
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:22.220
  • FIRST COCKTAILS. BY THE TIME HE CAME HOME
  • 00:03:22.230 --> 00:03:25.090
  • HE WAS ALMOST ALWAYS DRUNK.
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:26.210
  • WE WERE JUST ALWAYS WORRIED - WAS HE IN A GOOD
  • 00:03:26.220 --> 00:03:29.000
  • MOOD OR A BAD MOOD - AND WE'D RUN AND HIDE IF DAD
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:32.040
  • CAME HOME DRUNK IN A BAD MOOD.
  • 00:03:32.050 --> 00:03:34.030
  • SO IT WASN'T ALWAYS A VERY HAPPY HOME AND SO WHEN I
  • 00:03:34.040 --> 00:03:38.240
  • MEET PEOPLE THAT THINK, 'OH, IF I COULD JUST MAKE
  • 00:03:38.250 --> 00:03:40.170
  • MORE MONEY I'D BE HAPPY.' I THOUGHT, 'OH, YOU REALLY
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:42.120
  • THINK SO?' IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.
  • 00:03:42.130 --> 00:03:45.070
  • JESUS SAID, 'ONE'S LIFE DOES NOT CONSIST IN THE
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:48.280
  • ABUNDANCE OF THINGS HE POSSESSES.' MONEY DOES NOT
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:52.130
  • MAKE A VERY GOOD FOUNDATION FOR HAPPINESS.
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:55.140
  • NOW I'M GOING TO SWITCH OVER AND TALK ABOUT MOM
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:56.240
  • FOR A MINUTE. VERY DIFFERENT -
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:58.290
  • MOM WAS JEWISH - HER MAIDEN NAME WAS TARSHIS.
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:02.070
  • SHE WAS BORN IN NEW YORK CITY. SHE WENT TO CALIFORNIA
  • 00:04:02.080 --> 00:04:05.140
  • WITH HER FAMILY WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG.
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:07.030
  • THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A BETTER LIFE.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.090
  • AND MOM REALLY WAS INTRIGUED WITH WANTING TO
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:12.170
  • BE FAMOUS. SHE WAS VERY TALENTED.
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:15.240
  • SHE COULD SING, BUT BEYOND THAT, MOM SHE REALLY
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:20.150
  • BECAME FAMOUS AS A FILM CRITIC.
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:23.010
  • DURING THAT ERA IT WAS A VERY POWERFUL POSITION.
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:25.220
  • IF A CRITIC SAID A MOVIE WAS BAD, THEY LOST A LOT
  • 00:04:25.230 --> 00:04:28.100
  • OF MONEY. IF IT WAS GOOD THEY COULD
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:30.000
  • MAKE A LOT OF MONEY. AND SO, SHE KNEW A LOT OF
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:33.040
  • POWERFUL PEOPLE AND MOVIE STARS IN HOLLYWOOD.
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:35.180
  • HERE'S SOME PICTURES OF MOM WITH SOME OF THE
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:37.200
  • DIFFERENT CELEBRITIES. THIS IS MOM
  • 00:04:37.210 --> 00:04:43.030
  • WITH SYLVESTER STALLONE, MUHAMMAD ALI -
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:44.160
  • ANYONE REMEMBER GEORGE BURNS?
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:45.290
  • -YES. -PAUL MCCARTNEY.
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:47.090
  • HERE'S MOM WITH WARREN BEATTY, JIMMY STEWART,
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:51.050
  • BOB HOPE, NATALIE WOOD - SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT THEY
  • 00:04:51.060 --> 00:04:54.040
  • EVEN LOOKED A LITTLE ALIKE. HERE SHE IS WITH SALLY
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:58.080
  • FIELDS WHO'S STILL ACTING TODAY.
  • 00:04:58.090 --> 00:05:00.060
  • CLINT EASTWOOD - STILL PRODUCING. PAUL NEWMAN.
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:02.200
  • ROGER MOORE - ONE OF THE JAMES BONDS.
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:05.050
  • SO SHE KNEW THESE PEOPLE AND WHEN WE WERE GROWING
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.230
  • UP, MY BROTHER AND I - WE DIDN'T REALIZE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:11.130
  • HOW FAMOUS SOME OF THESE FOLKS WERE, BUT FAMOUS
  • 00:05:11.140 --> 00:05:13.010
  • COMPOSERS AND SINGERS AND ACTORS WERE COMING TO AND
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:15.230
  • FRO IN OUR HOME, BOTH IN L.A.
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:18.230
  • - SHE LIVED IN BEVERLY HILLS AND NEW YORK CITY
  • 00:05:18.240 --> 00:05:20.290
  • AND THE ONE THING I NOTICED IS THEY WEREN'T
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:23.240
  • VERY HAPPY. IT'S ALL AN ILLUSION.
  • 00:05:23.250 --> 00:05:27.040
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY MEAN ANYTHING.
  • 00:05:27.050 --> 00:05:29.050
  • MOVIES AND TELEVISION - IT JUST CREATES AN ILLUSION
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:31.230
  • BECAUSE YOU MULTIPLY AN IMAGE, BUT THEY'RE JUST
  • 00:05:31.240 --> 00:05:34.120
  • NORMAL PEOPLE AND THEY STRUGGLE.
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:36.290
  • NOW I GREW UP MOSTLY IN NEW YORK CITY - BORN IN
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:41.000
  • SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - MOM MOVED TO NEW YORK CITY
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:43.050
  • AFTER SHE DIVORCED DAD. PEOPLE WERE AMAZED THE
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:45.030
  • MARRIAGE LASTED SIX YEARS. I WAS THREE YEARS OLD
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:47.050
  • WHEN THEY DIVORCED. BOUNCED AROUND BETWEEN MY
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:49.120
  • GRANDPARENTS AND MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:52.030
  • WERE SO BUSY WITH THEIR CAREERS THAT WE JUST KIND
  • 00:05:52.040 --> 00:05:54.070
  • OF FELT LIKE WE WERE IN THE WAY.
  • 00:05:54.080 --> 00:05:56.130
  • I WENT TO 14 DIFFERENT SCHOOLS. PART OF THE REASON IS THAT
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:06:00.140
  • MOM AND DAD WERE CHANGING CUSTODY, PART OF THE
  • 00:06:00.150 --> 00:06:02.240
  • REASON IS BECAUSE I WAS GETTING IN TROUBLE AND
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:04.110
  • THEY KEPT CHANGING ME FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL, AND IT
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:07.080
  • DIDN'T HELP THAT MOM USED DRUGS.
  • 00:06:07.090 --> 00:06:10.200
  • AND I REMEMBER ONE DAY WHEN I WAS 13 YEARS OLD
  • 00:06:10.210 --> 00:06:12.160
  • THAT MOM SAID, 'WELL, EVENTUALLY DOUG, I KNOW
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:15.110
  • THAT YOU'RE GOING TO TRY THESE THINGS.
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:17.140
  • I JUST AS SOON YOU DID IT AT HOME.'
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:19.290
  • AND SO SHE ROLLED A JOINT AND SHE SMOKED POT WITH ME.
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:22.260
  • VERY COMMON OCCURRENCE IN OUR HOME.
  • 00:06:22.270 --> 00:06:24.250
  • TWO OR THREE TIMES A WEEK MOM AND I WOULD SMOKE POT
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:27.290
  • OR HASHISH AND EAT ICE CREAM AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:06:28.000 --> 00:06:32.120
  • 'I JUST WANT YOU TO DO IT AT HOME.' WELL, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:33.280
  • IT DIDN'T STAY AT HOME. AND SO I STARTED GETTING
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:37.010
  • INTO ALL KINDS OF TROUBLE AND I KIND OF BOUNCED
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:40.190
  • AROUND FROM ONE THING TO ANOTHER.
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:42.050
  • I RAN AWAY FROM HOME THE FIRST TIME WHEN I WAS 13.
  • 00:06:42.060 --> 00:06:44.150
  • I WAS JUST LOOKING FOR PURPOSE.
  • 00:06:44.160 --> 00:06:46.180
  • I USED TO THINK ABOUT SUICIDE ALL THE TIME
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:49.110
  • BECAUSE MANY OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS WE WENT TO, THEY
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:51.160
  • SAID, 'THERE'S NO GOD.' AND WHEN YOU DIE YOU JUST
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:54.210
  • TURN BACK INTO FERTILIZER. THERE'S NO PURPOSE.
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:57.260
  • AND I REMEMBER, DISTINCTLY, WHEN I WAS
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:59.110
  • LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY, I WENT TO THE EDGE OF ONE OF
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:02.040
  • THESE TALL APARTMENT BUILDINGS - YOU KNOW, WE
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:04.100
  • LIVED IN A BUILDING THAT WAS 20 FLOORS UP AND - GET
  • 00:07:04.110 --> 00:07:07.230
  • OUT ON THE ROOF AND I STOOD AND I LOOKED AND I
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:10.080
  • THOUGHT, 'YOU KNOW, ALL I HAVE TO DO IS JUMP AND I
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:13.230
  • WON'T BE UNHAPPY ANYMORE.' DO I NEED TO TELL YOU THAT
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:16.290
  • I WASN'T A VERY HAPPY CHILD?
  • 00:07:17.000 --> 00:07:19.080
  • I JUST FELT LIKE MY PARENTS WERE BUSY WITH
  • 00:07:19.090 --> 00:07:21.230
  • THEIR CAREERS AND I JUST DIDN'T HAVE ANY PEACE OR
  • 00:07:21.240 --> 00:07:24.130
  • HAPPINESS. I BELIEVED YOU DIE AND
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:26.020
  • YOU TURN BACK INTO DIRT. AND I THOUGHT I GOT IN
  • 00:07:26.030 --> 00:07:28.120
  • TROUBLE IN SCHOOL ALL THE TIME, 'WHY NOT
  • 00:07:28.130 --> 00:07:29.280
  • GET IT OVER WITH? ALL I'VE GOT TO DO IS JUMP AND
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:31.190
  • I WON'T BE HURTING ANYMORE.' THE SAD THING IS
  • 00:07:31.200 --> 00:07:34.180
  • I STARTED THINKING ABOUT THAT AT SEVEN YEARS OLD,
  • 00:07:34.190 --> 00:07:37.230
  • BUT GOD JUST KEPT HOLDING IT BACK.
  • 00:07:37.240 --> 00:07:40.140
  • YOU KNOW, ONE THING THAT HELPED ME?
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:43.190
  • I HAVE AN INSATIABLE CURIOSITY AND I THOUGHT,
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:45.270
  • 'IF I KILL MYSELF TODAY, SOMETHING REALLY
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:48.170
  • INTERESTING'S BOUND TO HAPPEN TOMORROW AND I'LL
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:50.070
  • MISS IT.' (LAUGHTER) AND SO I WAS ABLE TO POSTPONE
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:53.210
  • MY SUICIDE ONE DAY AT A TIME, BECAUSE OF
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:55.250
  • CURIOSITY, FOR YEARS. YEARS LATER, I REMEMBER
  • 00:07:55.260 --> 00:07:59.070
  • WHEN MOM TURNED 40, SHE CALLED ME UP.
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.090
  • SHE SAID, 'DOUG, YOU KNOW, I REALIZE THAT MY BEAUTY
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:03.260
  • AND TALENTS ARE FADING AND I'M JUST THINKING OF
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:06.110
  • ENDING MY LIFE.' I SAID, 'MOM, LET ME TELL YOU HOW
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:08.160
  • I DEALT WITH THAT.' AT THIS POINT I WAS
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:10.140
  • A CHRISTIAN. I SAID, 'YOU LOSE ALL YOUR
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:12.280
  • OPTIONS WHEN YOU COMMIT SUICIDE.
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:14.220
  • YOU NEVER KNOW, IT MIGHT GET BETTER TOMORROW AND
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:16.200
  • YOU'LL NEVER FIND OUT IF YOU KILL YOURSELF.'
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.230
  • I SAID, 'JUST TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME.' YEARS
  • 00:08:18.240 --> 00:08:20.220
  • LATER SHE SAID, 'YOU KNOW, THAT REALLY HELPED ME.'
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:24.210
  • SO I BEGAN TO THINK, 'YOU KNOW, WHY KILL YOURSELF BY
  • 00:08:24.220 --> 00:08:27.140
  • DOING SOMETHING BORING LIKE JUMPING OFF A
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:29.140
  • BUILDING OR TAKING A HANDFUL OF PILLS?'
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:32.010
  • I HEARD A BEER COMMERCIAL AND IT SAID, 'YOU ONLY GO
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:36.000
  • AROUND ONCE IN LIFE, GET ALL THE GUSTO YOU CAN.'
  • 00:08:36.010 --> 00:08:39.170
  • I WASN'T REAL SURE WHAT 'GUSTO' WAS BUT I THOUGHT,
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:41.290
  • 'WELL, THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.
  • 00:08:42.000 --> 00:08:43.090
  • I'M GOING TO - I'M JUST GOING TO HAVE AS MUCH FUN
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:45.040
  • AS I CAN AND I'LL JUST - I'LL KILL MYSELF HAVING
  • 00:08:45.050 --> 00:08:48.090
  • FUN.' AND SO I JUST BEGAN TO LIVE A VERY WILD LIFE
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:52.140
  • WITH ABANDON. WHEN I WAS LIVING WITH
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:54.180
  • MOM - I WAS ALREADY USING DRUGS AT HOME WITH MOM
  • 00:08:54.190 --> 00:08:57.230
  • AND I FOUND OUT WHERE HER STASH WAS SO I ALREADY
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:09:01.070
  • KNEW ABOUT THAT SIDE. WHEN I WAS LIVING WITH
  • 00:09:01.080 --> 00:09:02.230
  • DAD, DAD'S SPECIALTY WAS ALCOHOL.
  • 00:09:02.240 --> 00:09:06.260
  • HE LIVED IN A MANSION IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WITH
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:08.260
  • A BUTLER AND A MAID AND HE HAD A COMPLETE BAR IN THE
  • 00:09:08.270 --> 00:09:12.070
  • HOUSE - STOCKED BETTER THAN SOME CITY BARS.
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:15.050
  • AND MY FRIENDS AND I, WE WOULD DRINK AND I WAS
  • 00:09:15.060 --> 00:09:18.010
  • GETTING INTO A LOT OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:19.230
  • I STARTED GETTING INVOLVED IN STEALING AND FIGHTING
  • 00:09:19.240 --> 00:09:24.280
  • AND DRUGS - I STARTED SMOKING CIGARETTES AND I
  • 00:09:24.290 --> 00:09:29.180
  • WAS IN AND OUT OF JAIL. I RAN AWAY FROM
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:31.120
  • HOME SEVERAL TIMES. AND SO, I WAS GETTING
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:33.260
  • INTO LOTS OF TROUBLE. AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT WAS
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:36.070
  • IS, I WANTED ATTENTION. I WANTED MY FRIENDS TO
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:37.240
  • LIKE ME AND I JUST - EVERYONE WANTS LOVE AND I
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:41.140
  • JUST FELT LIKE NOBODY EVEN CARED ABOUT ME AND SO I
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:43.120
  • JUST TRIED SO HARD TO GET SOMEONE TO LIKE ME, I'D
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:45.240
  • DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING. WHEN I WAS LIVING WITH DAD
  • 00:09:45.250 --> 00:09:48.200
  • - THIS IS THE ISLAND - THAT'S A GOOGLE PICTURE OF
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:50.270
  • SUNSET ISLAND #1 - THAT'S WHERE DAD LIVED.
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:53.180
  • HE WAS ON THE NORTH PART OF THAT PICTURE.
  • 00:09:53.190 --> 00:09:55.070
  • HAD A HOUSE RIGHT THERE ON THE BAY.
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:09:57.080
  • WE HAD THREE BOATS IN THE BACKYARD - HAD A YACHT, A
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:59.280
  • SKI BOAT, AND I HAD A LITTLE SAIL BOAT.
  • 00:09:59.290 --> 00:10:01.270
  • AND THE FRIENDS THAT I GREW UP WITH ON THE
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:04.120
  • ISLAND, WE GOT BORED IN THE SUMMERTIME AND WE
  • 00:10:04.130 --> 00:10:09.020
  • WOULD GO BREAK INTO THE HOMES OF THE OTHER
  • 00:10:09.030 --> 00:10:12.120
  • MILLIONAIRES. WE'D JUST SIT AROUND AND
  • 00:10:12.130 --> 00:10:13.230
  • SAY, 'WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?' 'I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.'
  • 00:10:13.240 --> 00:10:15.030
  • 'LET'S GO BREAK INTO THIS HOME.' AND SO WE'D GO -
  • 00:10:15.040 --> 00:10:17.240
  • AND WE'D DARE EACH OTHER. JUST, YOU KNOW, KIDS HAVE
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:20.170
  • NOTHING TO DO AND SO WE'D GO BREAK INTO A HOME.
  • 00:10:20.180 --> 00:10:23.140
  • IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT WE STOLE, JUST STEAL
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:25.170
  • SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU WERE IN THERE.
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:27.200
  • I STOLE A TENNIS RACQUET - JUST ANYTHING.
  • 00:10:27.210 --> 00:10:30.060
  • AND THEN THEY STARTED DARING ME - THEY'D SAY, 'I
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:32.090
  • DARE YOU TO BREAK IN WHILE THE PEOPLE ARE STILL
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:34.160
  • WALKING AROUND.' YOU COULD SEE THE LIGHTS ON.
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:36.250
  • BECAUSE WE KNEW THE DOORS WERE OPEN BECAUSE THE
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:39.050
  • ISLAND HAD A SECURITY GUARD SO PEOPLE WERE VERY
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:41.100
  • RELAXED AND SO WE'D BREAK IN AND WE'D STEAL
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:45.160
  • SOMETHING. THEY WOULD DARE ME TO JUMP
  • 00:10:45.170 --> 00:10:47.200
  • OFF THE BRIDGE INTO THE WATER AND I WOULD DO IT
  • 00:10:47.210 --> 00:10:50.200
  • JUST, YOU KNOW, JUST TO TRY AND GET
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:52.130
  • THEIR ATTENTION. WELL THINGS CONTINUED TO
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:54.150
  • PROGRESSIVELY GET WORSE WITH THE DRUGS, THE
  • 00:10:54.160 --> 00:10:56.240
  • STEALING - I BEGAN TO BREAK INTO OTHER HOMES AND
  • 00:10:56.250 --> 00:11:01.110
  • STEALING CARS AND RUN-INS WITH THE POLICE.
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:07.190
  • I TOOK TRAFFIC SCHOOL SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE I
  • 00:11:07.200 --> 00:11:09.240
  • EVEN HAD A LICENSE BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEMS I GOT IN -
  • 00:11:09.250 --> 00:11:13.230
  • BUT SOMETHING INTERESTING HAPPENED.
  • 00:11:13.240 --> 00:11:15.160
  • I FINALLY LEFT HOME WHEN I WAS 15 AND I TOLD DAD - MY
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:20.100
  • STEP-MOTHER SAID, 'EITHER HE GOES OR I GO.' AND I
  • 00:11:20.110 --> 00:11:23.230
  • DON'T BLAME HER. I WAS REALLY A PROBLEM.
  • 00:11:23.240 --> 00:11:25.260
  • DAD MOVED ME INTO ONE OF HIS HOTELS.
  • 00:11:25.270 --> 00:11:27.150
  • HE SAID, 'YOU'VE GOT TO LIVE HERE.' THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:11:27.160 --> 00:11:29.150
  • WORK VERY LONG AND FINALLY I SAID, 'LOOK, DAD, I'M
  • 00:11:29.160 --> 00:11:31.050
  • GOING TO GO.' AND HE SAID, 'I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:32.250
  • DO WITH YOU. I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING.'
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:34.050
  • AND I SAID, 'I'M JUST GOING TO HAVE TO GO FIGURE
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:36.230
  • IT OUT BY MYSELF.' AND I LEFT.
  • 00:11:36.240 --> 00:11:38.260
  • AND I TOOK OFF HITCHHIKING AT 15 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:11:38.270 --> 00:11:42.230
  • I WENT UP TO BOSTON. I HAD FORGED MY DRIVER'S
  • 00:11:42.240 --> 00:11:45.060
  • LICENSE, YOU KNOW, I WAS BORN IN 1957.
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:48.050
  • I CHANGED MY LEARNER'S PERMIT TO '52.
  • 00:11:48.060 --> 00:11:51.050
  • I GOT A FALSE ID THAT SAID I WAS OLDER THAN I WAS AND
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:54.260
  • SO I GOT AN APARTMENT IN BOSTON AND I STARTED
  • 00:11:54.270 --> 00:11:59.260
  • BREAKING INTO HOMES AND STEALING - STEALING CARS,
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:03.230
  • USING DRUGS - I HAD A PART-TIME JOB AS A
  • 00:12:03.240 --> 00:12:07.090
  • SECURITY GUARD - (LAUGHTER) -
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:09.090
  • BELIEVE IT OR NOT. I DID - A PLACE CALLED
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:12.070
  • BOSTON INTELLIGENCE - AND SO I'D GUARD PLACES AT
  • 00:12:12.080 --> 00:12:16.130
  • NIGHT AND THEN I'D STEAL DURING THE DAY BECAUSE
  • 00:12:16.140 --> 00:12:18.030
  • IT JUST LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE MOVING.
  • 00:12:18.040 --> 00:12:20.130
  • AND WHILE I WAS LIVING LIKE THIS IN BOSTON,
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:23.280
  • GETTING INTO LOTS OF TROUBLE, I MET A FRIEND
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:25.280
  • WHO WAS VERY RELIGIOUS AND HE WAS A SECURITY GUARD
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:30.060
  • AND HE FOUND OUT ABOUT WHAT I WAS DOING DURING
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:32.200
  • THE DAY AND I SAID, 'JERRY, ARE YOU GOING TO
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:34.220
  • TURN ME IN?' AND HE SAID, 'OH NO, DOUG,
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:37.080
  • I DON'T NEED TO TURN YOU IN.' HE SAID 'YOUR KARMA'S
  • 00:12:37.090 --> 00:12:38.280
  • GOING TO GET YOU.' I SAID, 'WHAT DO YOU MEAN?' HE SAID,
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:42.010
  • 'EVERYTHING YOU DO COMES BACK.' -YEP.
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:44.090
  • -I SAID, 'THERE'S NO GOD.' I STOLE THAT
  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:46.020
  • TELEVISION. I GOT RID OF IT AND
  • 00:12:46.030 --> 00:12:47.210
  • NOTHING HAPPENED TO ME.' HE SAID, 'YOU'LL SEE.' AND
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:50.190
  • NOT LONG AFTER HE TOLD ME THAT, I WOKE UP IN MY
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:52.250
  • APARTMENT IN BOSTON AND MY DOOR WAS OPEN.
  • 00:12:52.260 --> 00:12:55.080
  • AND I GOT MY SCRUPLES TOGETHER AND I LOOKED
  • 00:12:55.090 --> 00:12:57.060
  • AROUND - MY TV WAS GONE - AND MY RADIO.
  • 00:12:57.070 --> 00:13:01.000
  • AND I WAS MAD. I CALLED THE POLICE.
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:02.120
  • I SAID, 'YOU'VE GOT TO TRACK THESE GUYS DOWN.
  • 00:13:02.130 --> 00:13:04.010
  • YOU KNOW, THERE'S THIEVES.' I SAID, 'I PAY
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:05.220
  • TAXES FOR YOU GUYS TO DO YOUR JOB.' AND I WAS VERY
  • 00:13:05.230 --> 00:13:09.110
  • INDIGNANT. AND I STARTED WATCHING AND I NOTICED THAT
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:12.060
  • EVERYTHING I DID SEEMED TO BACKFIRE.
  • 00:13:12.070 --> 00:13:13.290
  • -YEP. -I'D STEAL SOMETHING AND - MY
  • 00:13:14.000 --> 00:13:17.130
  • FRIENDS WERE ALL ALL THIEVES - THEY'D STEAL IT FROM ME.
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:20.070
  • OR I WOULD STEAL SOMETHING - AND I WAS OFTEN HIGH OR
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:23.120
  • DRUNK - AND I'D HIDE IT AND I'D SOBER UP AND SAY,
  • 00:13:23.130 --> 00:13:26.140
  • 'WHERE DID I PUT THAT?' OR I MISPLACED THE MONEY.
  • 00:13:26.150 --> 00:13:30.240
  • OR I'D STEAL SOMETHING AND, I REMEMBER ONCE, I
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:33.240
  • JUST RISKED MY LIFE. I STOLE THIS STEREO, I GOT
  • 00:13:33.250 --> 00:13:36.090
  • BACK, I PLUGGED IT IN - IT WAS BROKEN. IT DIDN'T EVEN WORK.
  • 00:13:36.100 --> 00:13:39.080
  • (LAUGHTER) AND I STARTED THINKING, 'THERE MUST BE A
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:43.040
  • GOD.' YOU KNOW, JESUS SAID, 'DO UNTO OTHERS AS
  • 00:13:43.050 --> 00:13:45.190
  • YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU' AND IT SEEMED
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:47.090
  • LIKE EVERYTHING I DID IT WAS BACKFIRING ON ME.
  • 00:13:47.100 --> 00:13:49.290
  • WHAT CONVINCED ME, FINALLY, WAS A LITTLE THING.
  • 00:13:50.000 --> 00:13:53.070
  • I WENT TO SOMEONE'S HOUSE - I DIDN'T QUIT STEALING
  • 00:13:53.080 --> 00:13:56.110
  • IMMEDIATELY, I KIND OF TAPERED OFF.
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:58.270
  • I WENT TO SOMEONE'S HOUSE AND I STOLE A BOX OF
  • 00:13:58.280 --> 00:14:00.170
  • KRUSTEAZ INSTANT PANCAKE MIX (LAUGHTER) AND I KNOW
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:04.100
  • THIS SOUNDS REALLY DUMB BUT, I DID IT BECAUSE IT
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:07.080
  • WAS WHOLE WHEAT PANCAKE MIX.
  • 00:14:07.090 --> 00:14:10.090
  • (LAUGHTER) NOW YOU'VE GOT TO JUST THINK ABOUT HOW
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:12.130
  • DUMB THIS IS. I AM DRINKING, I'M
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:14.020
  • SMOKING, I'M USING DRUGS, BUT I WAS A HIPPIE AND I
  • 00:14:14.030 --> 00:14:16.140
  • THOUGHT, 'I'LL JUST USE WHOLE WHEAT PANCAKE MIX.'
  • 00:14:16.150 --> 00:14:19.050
  • (LAUGHTER) THEY HAD THIS BRAND-NEW BOX OF KRUSTEAZ
  • 00:14:19.060 --> 00:14:22.220
  • INSTANT PANCAKE MIX AND THIS WAS BACK BEFORE THEY
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:25.030
  • HAD THE BAR CODES AND THEY HAD THE LITTLE
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:26.240
  • ROUND STAMP ON TOP. THEY'D STAMP THE TOP WITH
  • 00:14:26.250 --> 00:14:28.190
  • THE PRICE - LITTLE CIRCLE - $1.19 - I STOLE IT.
  • 00:14:28.200 --> 00:14:32.110
  • THAT DAY, I WENT BACK TO MY HOUSE AND SOME FRIENDS
  • 00:14:32.120 --> 00:14:34.260
  • HAD COME BY WHILE I WASN'T HOME.
  • 00:14:34.270 --> 00:14:36.170
  • I HAD JUST BOUGHT A BRAND-NEW JAR OF TANG
  • 00:14:36.180 --> 00:14:38.110
  • INSTANT BREAKFAST DRINK. ANYONE REMEMBER THAT?
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:40.170
  • MY FRIENDS DRANK THE ENTIRE JAR AND THERE, BY
  • 00:14:40.180 --> 00:14:45.220
  • THE EMPTY JAR, WAS THE LID AND THE LID WAS STAMPED $1.19.
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:50.060
  • AND I LOOKED AT THE PANCAKE MIX AND I LOOKED
  • 00:14:50.070 --> 00:14:51.260
  • AT THE LID AND I THOUGHT, 'CRIME DOESN'T PAY.'
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:53.210
  • (LAUGHTER) I STARTED THINKING THERE MUST BE A
  • 00:14:53.220 --> 00:14:55.130
  • GOD. SO I BEGAN TO SEARCH.
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:57.220
  • SO I STARTED GETTING INTO ALL THESE EASTERN
  • 00:14:57.230 --> 00:14:59.160
  • RELIGIONS AND BUDDHISM - THIS WAS BACK IN THE DAYS
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:01.280
  • OF THE BEATLES AND EVERYBODY WAS MEDITATING
  • 00:15:01.290 --> 00:15:03.200
  • AND THE EASTERN RELIGIONS WERE VERY INTRIGUING IN
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:06.170
  • AMERICA AND SO I WAS MEDITATING AND I WAS - I
  • 00:15:06.180 --> 00:15:09.290
  • GOT INTO SOMETHING CALLED THE SPIRITUAL SCIENCE OF
  • 00:15:10.000 --> 00:15:12.080
  • DNA AND I TOOK A LITTLE BIT OF, KIND OF, THE

  • JEWISH HERITAGE AND MIXED THAT IN AND, OF COURSE,
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:18.190
  • I'D GONE TO CATHOLIC SCHOOL AND SO I KIND OF
  • 00:15:18.200 --> 00:15:20.150
  • MADE THIS BIG OLD POTLUCK OF ALL THESE DIFFERENT
  • 00:15:20.160 --> 00:15:23.020
  • RELIGIONS WITH MYSELF AS MY OWN LITTLE POPE TRYING

  • TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER AND I WAS VERY SPIRITUAL AND I
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:28.270
  • - I, YOU KNOW, I'D QUOTE SUDDENLY FROM ONE RELIGION
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:30.230
  • AND THEN FROM ANOTHER RELIGION AND WHILE ALL
  • 00:15:30.240 --> 00:15:32.150
  • THIS WAS HAPPENING, I WAS SO SPIRITUAL AND SO
  • 00:15:32.160 --> 00:15:34.100
  • RELIGIOUS, I'M STILL USING DRUGS AND DRINKING.
  • 00:15:34.110 --> 00:15:38.210

  • WELL, ABOUT THIS TIME, MY FATHER FLEW TO BOSTON AND
  • 00:16:18.100 --> 00:16:23.150
  • HE MADE A SPECIAL TRIP AND HE SAID, 'DOUG, YOU NEED
  • 00:16:23.160 --> 00:16:26.080
  • TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL. YOU'RE WASTING YOUR LIFE.'
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:29.290
  • MY BROTHER, FALCON, WAS SICK.
  • 00:16:30.000 --> 00:16:32.040
  • HE COULDN'T TAKE OVER THE FAMILY BUSINESS AND I HAD
  • 00:16:32.050 --> 00:16:35.110
  • A STEP-BROTHER FROM DAD'S THIRD WIFE, BETTY,
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:39.210
  • AND HE WAS STARTING TO DO IT. HE COULDN'T.
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.120
  • DAD SAID, 'YOU'RE THROWING YOUR LIFE AWAY.
  • 00:16:41.130 --> 00:16:43.160
  • YOU NEED AN EDUCATION.' HE SAID, 'DOUG, I FOUND A
  • 00:16:43.170 --> 00:16:45.220
  • GOOD SCHOOL. YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT.'
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:47.110
  • HE SAID, YOU LIKE ADVENTURE? THIS IS A SCHOOL THAT'S ON
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:49.130
  • A BOAT.' IT WAS CALLED THE FLINT SCHOOL - THERE WERE
  • 00:16:49.140 --> 00:16:53.010
  • TWO SCHOOLS LIKE THIS IN THE WORLD BACK THEN.
  • 00:16:53.020 --> 00:16:54.260
  • ONE THEY MADE A MOVIE OUT OF CALLED WHITE SQUALL -
  • 00:16:54.270 --> 00:16:57.090
  • THAT WAS AN ALL-BOYS' SCHOOL.
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:58.190
  • THIS ONE WAS CO-ED. AND SO HE SAID, 'OH,
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:00.190
  • YOU'LL LOVE IT.' AND HE PLED WITH ME.
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:02.130
  • I SAID, 'OKAY.' SOMEHOW HE GOT ME A PASSPORT, FLEW ME
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:05.290
  • TO MILAN, ITALY, PUT ME ON THIS BOAT - IT WAS
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:11.130
  • ACTUALLY TWO SAILBOATS THAT SAILED TOGETHER, IT
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:14.110
  • WAS CALLED THE FLINT SCHOOL AND AFTER WE LEFT I
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:17.230
  • REALIZED I'D SORT OF BEEN TRICKED BECAUSE THIS WAS A
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:20.080
  • VERY UNIQUE SCHOOL FOR THE CHILDREN OF POLITICIANS
  • 00:17:20.090 --> 00:17:25.000
  • AND MILLIONAIRES TO GET THEM OUT OF THEIR
  • 00:17:25.010 --> 00:17:27.240
  • ENVIRONMENTS. THEY HAD A LOT OF KIDS
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:29.080
  • GETTING MIXED UP WITH MOONIES AND CULTS AND
  • 00:17:29.090 --> 00:17:31.090
  • DRUGS BACK THEN AND THEY GOT THEM OUT OF THE
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:33.210
  • ENVIRONMENT AND PUT THEM IN A CONTROLLED
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:35.200
  • ENVIRONMENT, TAUGHT THEM, YOU KNOW, BUSINESS
  • 00:17:35.210 --> 00:17:38.150
  • PRINCIPLES, BUT THEY TAUGHT ATHEISM.
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:41.200
  • NOW I'M VERY SPIRITUAL AND THEY'RE SHOWING FILMS OF
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:43.100
  • DARWIN. THEY'RE TELLING US TO READ
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:44.230
  • THE BOOKS OF AYN RAND - ATLAS SHRUGGED - I DON'T
  • 00:17:44.240 --> 00:17:47.000
  • KNOW IF YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT STUFF.
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:48.180
  • IT'S SORT OF LIKE YOU'RE GOD AND THE CAPTAIN SAID,
  • 00:17:48.190 --> 00:17:51.050
  • 'LOOK, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE - YOU HAVE TO EAT ON
  • 00:17:51.060 --> 00:17:53.060
  • THE FLOOR IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PARTICIPATE.' AND
  • 00:17:53.070 --> 00:17:55.000
  • SO I'D SAY, 'FINE.' I'D EAT ON THE FLOOR.
  • 00:17:55.010 --> 00:17:56.110
  • I DISRUPTED THE SCHOOL AND THEY SAID, 'WELL, YOU'RE
  • 00:17:56.120 --> 00:18:00.090
  • GOING TO HAVE TO STAY IN YOUR ROOM.' AND I HAD MY
  • 00:18:00.100 --> 00:18:01.200
  • FRIENDS BRINGING ME FOOD AND IT JUST - THIS WENT ON
  • 00:18:01.210 --> 00:18:04.050
  • FOR TWO MONTHS. SO WE HAD AN INTERESTING EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:18:04.060 --> 00:18:08.270
  • WE WERE SAILING FROM NORTHERN AFRICA - TUNIS,
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:12.180
  • AFRICA - OVER TO PORT OF MAHON, SPAIN.
  • 00:18:12.190 --> 00:18:15.240
  • AND ON THE WAY ACROSS WE ENCOUNTERED JUST A
  • 00:18:15.250 --> 00:18:18.080
  • TERRIBLE STORM AND WATER WAS COMING IN.
  • 00:18:18.090 --> 00:18:22.160
  • THE MAIN SAIL RIPPED. THE WIND WAS HOWLING.
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:25.190
  • CAPTAIN WAS SEA SICK. THE WATER WAS COLD - IT
  • 00:18:25.200 --> 00:18:30.120
  • WAS CHRISTMAS TIME - AND WHAT DO YOU THINK ATHEISTS
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:33.010
  • DO WHEN THEY THINK THEY'RE GOING TO DIE?
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:35.110
  • -PRAY. -THEY STARTED PRAYING.
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:38.230
  • AND I WAS DOING SOME PRAYING.
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:40.220
  • AND - YOU MAKE PROMISES. YOU ALL KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:18:40.230 --> 00:18:43.090
  • DOING WRONG WHEN THAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:18:43.100 --> 00:18:45.080
  • AND SO, OF COURSE FEAR IS THE WRONG REASON TO SERVE GOD.
  • 00:18:45.090 --> 00:18:49.290
  • AS SOON AS THE STORM WAS OVER WE FORGOT ALL ABOUT
  • 00:18:50.000 --> 00:18:52.060
  • THE PRAYERS AND THE PROMISES.
  • 00:18:52.070 --> 00:18:53.280
  • I MANAGED TO CONVINCE THE CAPTAIN, 'LOOK, I'LL
  • 00:18:53.290 --> 00:18:57.080
  • COOPERATE FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:19:00.110
  • BREAK IF YOU JUST LET ME GO HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
  • 00:19:00.120 --> 00:19:02.140
  • BREAK. AND THEY WERE SO ANXIOUS
  • 00:19:02.150 --> 00:19:04.070
  • TO GET RID OF ME, HE CALLED MY DAD AND SAID,
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:06.010
  • 'YOU'VE GOT A DEAL.' AND TOLD MR. BATCHELOR, 'WE
  • 00:19:06.020 --> 00:19:08.180
  • THINK DOUG'S SHOWN GREAT PROGRESS.
  • 00:19:08.190 --> 00:19:10.010
  • WE'RE GOING TO LET HIM COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS.'
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:12.090
  • BECAUSE MY DAD HAD TO PAY THE WHOLE YEAR UP FRONT,
  • 00:19:12.100 --> 00:19:14.070
  • THEY DIDN'T CARE. THEY JUST WANTED
  • 00:19:14.080 --> 00:19:15.170
  • TO GET RID OF ME. SO I GOT ON THE AIRPLANE
  • 00:19:15.180 --> 00:19:17.230
  • IN MADRID, SPAIN, ORDERED BEER AND GOT A PACK OF
  • 00:19:17.240 --> 00:19:22.000
  • CIGARETTES AND TOLD THEM, I SAID, 'YOU WILL NEVER
  • 00:19:22.010 --> 00:19:23.160
  • SEE ME AGAIN.' AND THEY NEVER DID.
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:25.240
  • I GOT BACK TO THE STATES, WENT ON A SKI VACATION
  • 00:19:25.250 --> 00:19:29.020
  • WITH DAD, WHEN IT WAS TIME TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL I RAN
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:31.130
  • AWAY FOR THE LAST TIME AND I WENT HITCHHIKING ACROSS
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:33.290
  • THE COUNTRY TO A PLACE I FOUND WHEN I WAS 15.
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:36.160
  • IN THE MOUNTAINS ABOVE PALM SPRINGS THERE'S A VERY
  • 00:19:36.170 --> 00:19:38.180
  • TALL 10.000-FOOT MOUNTAIN CALLED MOUNT SAN JACINTO.
  • 00:19:38.190 --> 00:19:42.180
  • HALFWAY UP THIS MOUNTAIN THERE'S A CAVE - THERE'S
  • 00:19:42.190 --> 00:19:46.130
  • SOME - SEVERAL CAVES UP THERE - AND I SAID, 'I'M
  • 00:19:46.140 --> 00:19:49.060
  • GOING TO FIND GOD IN NATURE.' NOW ON MY WAY OUT
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:53.030
  • TO PALM SPRINGS, SOMETHING INTERESTING HAPPENED.
  • 00:19:53.040 --> 00:19:56.140
  • I GOT STUCK ON THE HIGHWAY IN OKLAHOMA.
  • 00:19:56.150 --> 00:20:01.210
  • I WAS COLD, HUNGRY, ALL THESE TRUCKS WERE GOING BY
  • 00:20:01.220 --> 00:20:06.160
  • AND I WAS A LITTLE HUNG OVER AND I WAS
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:09.280
  • DESPERATE AND I SAID, 'YOU KNOW, I OUGHT TO TRY
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:12.020
  • PRAYING.' AND AFTER STANDING THERE FOR EIGHT
  • 00:20:12.030 --> 00:20:14.250
  • HOURS FREEZING - BECAUSE I HAD FLORIDA CLOTHING ON -
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.040
  • IT WAS DECEMBER IN OKLAHOMA AND IT WAS
  • 00:20:17.050 --> 00:20:18.260
  • FREEZING COLD. I PRAYED AND I SAID,
  • 00:20:18.270 --> 00:20:21.160
  • 'LORD, I KNOW I'VE BEEN A TERRIBLE PERSON.
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:23.210
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, WILL YOU PLEASE HELP ME?
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:27.010
  • AND I NEED HELP WITH FOUR THINGS.' I SAID, 'PLEASE
  • 00:20:27.020 --> 00:20:29.070
  • HELP ME TO GET A RIDE TO WHERE I'M GOING.' I HAD
  • 00:20:29.080 --> 00:20:31.290
  • LIKE 1.500 MILES TO GO.
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:33.160
  • I SAID, 'PLEASE HELP ME GET SOME FOOD.' I WAS
  • 00:20:33.170 --> 00:20:35.200
  • HUNGRY. 'HELP ME GET SOME MONEY.'
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:38.030
  • I LOST ALL MY MONEY DRINKING AND PLAYING
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:39.260
  • POOL THE NIGHT BEFORE. AND THEN I PRAYED FOR A
  • 00:20:39.270 --> 00:20:42.040
  • RIDE WITH SOMEONE NORMAL, BECAUSE I WAS GETTING
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:45.220
  • PICKED UP BY SOME VERY STRANGE CHARACTERS.
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:48.290
  • AS SOON AS I FINISHED PRAYING, THE NEXT VEHICLE
  • 00:20:49.000 --> 00:20:50.190
  • GOING BY STOPPED, PICKED ME UP, TOOK ME ALL THE WAY
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:54.060
  • TO MY DESTINATION IN PALM SPRINGS, AND PREACHED TO
  • 00:20:54.070 --> 00:20:56.250
  • ME ALL THE WAY OUT THERE, WHICH I DIDN'T ASK FOR.
  • 00:20:56.260 --> 00:21:01.050
  • THEY GAVE ME $40.00 WHEN THEY DROPPED ME OFF.
  • 00:21:01.060 --> 00:21:04.000
  • THEY BOUGHT MY FOOD ALL THE WAY OUT.
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.140
  • EVERYTHING I PRAYED FOR, GOD GAVE ME.
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:06.260
  • I THOUGHT, 'WHAT A COINCIDENCE.' (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:06.270 --> 00:21:09.280
  • BUT I HAD TO LISTEN TO HIM OR JUMP OUT OF THE CAR.
  • 00:21:09.290 --> 00:21:13.090
  • SO I LISTENED TO HIM AND I THOUGHT, 'YOU KNOW, THE
  • 00:21:13.100 --> 00:21:14.220
  • BIBLE'S A FAIRY TALE. NOW I'M GOING TO FIND GOD
  • 00:21:14.230 --> 00:21:17.090
  • THROUGH NATURE.' SO I MOVED UP INTO THIS CAVE
  • 00:21:17.100 --> 00:21:21.020
  • WAY UP IN THESE DESERT MOUNTAINS AND I JUST
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:23.030
  • DIDN'T WANT TO BE AROUND PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:23.040 --> 00:21:24.190
  • I WAS SO TIRED OF THE PEOPLE IN NEW YORK CITY
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:26.070
  • AND I DIDN'T GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:28.000
  • I SAID, 'I'M JUST GOING TO SEE IF I CAN FIND GOD
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:29.170
  • THROUGH NATURE.' WELL, THE MIRACLE IS, WHEN I MOVED
  • 00:21:29.180 --> 00:21:32.070
  • INTO THIS CAVE, THERE WAS A BIBLE THAT SOMEONE HAD
  • 00:21:32.080 --> 00:21:35.040
  • LEFT IN THE CAVE UP THERE IN THE HILLS AND I FINALLY
  • 00:21:35.050 --> 00:21:38.100
  • STARTED READING THE BIBLE SO I COULD ARGUE WITH
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:40.160
  • CHRISTIANS. AND, YOU KNOW, I SAID,
  • 00:21:40.170 --> 00:21:45.090
  • 'THIS CAN'T BE TRUE.' BUT AS I KEPT READING, I
  • 00:21:45.100 --> 00:21:47.240
  • REALIZED IT IS TRUE. AND I THOUGHT, 'WHAT
  • 00:21:47.250 --> 00:21:51.260
  • HAVE I GOT TO LOSE?' YOU KNOW, I READ IN THE
  • 00:21:51.270 --> 00:21:54.130
  • ENCYCLOPEDIA THAT JESUS REALLY LIVED.
  • 00:21:54.140 --> 00:21:56.270
  • AND I THOUGHT EITHER JESUS WAS CRAZY OR HE WAS A LIAR
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:22:03.190
  • OR HE'S THE LORD. HE DIDN'T LIE. HE WASN'T CRAZY.
  • 00:22:03.200 --> 00:22:08.100
  • MAYBE GOD DID BECOME A MAN TO SAVE US AND THAT
  • 00:22:08.110 --> 00:22:12.190
  • THERE'S A PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES.
  • 00:22:12.200 --> 00:22:14.200
  • SO UP THERE IN THE CAVE I FINALLY DECIDED, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:17.150
  • I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:22:17.160 --> 00:22:19.260
  • I GOT ON MY KNEES, I SAID, 'LORD, I'M A MESS.
  • 00:22:19.270 --> 00:22:22.190
  • WILL YOU COME INTO MY HEART AND GIVE ME SOME
  • 00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:24.090
  • PURPOSE FOR LIVING?' AND I WAS AS FAR AWAY FROM
  • 00:22:24.100 --> 00:22:27.290
  • GOD AS A PERSON COULD BE. I'M RUNNING AROUND NAKED
  • 00:22:28.000 --> 00:22:29.290
  • UP IN THE MOUNTAINS. I'M EATING OUT OF GARBAGE
  • 00:22:30.000 --> 00:22:31.150
  • CANS, USING DRUGS, SMOKING, LYING, STEALING -
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:33.120
  • I MEAN, I WAS A BIG ZERO - AND I SAID, 'LORD, WILL
  • 00:22:33.130 --> 00:22:37.110
  • YOU GIVE ME SOME PURPOSE FOR LIVING?'
  • 00:22:37.120 --> 00:22:39.160
  • AND I FELT HIM FORGIVE MY SINS.
  • 00:22:39.170 --> 00:22:41.120
  • HE CAME INTO MY HEART AND EVERYTHING BEGAN
  • 00:22:41.130 --> 00:22:43.270
  • TO CHANGE. NOT ALL AT ONCE, BUT
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:45.070
  • THINGS BEGAN TO HAPPEN. ONE QUICK STORY, BEFORE WE
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:47.230
  • RUN OUT OF TIME, I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THE GOSPEL
  • 00:22:47.240 --> 00:22:51.200
  • AND THE CHANGES GOD WAS MAKING IN MY LIFE, I SAID,
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:54.040
  • 'LORD, I'M WILLING TO TELL PEOPLE, BUT I'M A HERMIT.
  • 00:22:54.050 --> 00:22:57.110
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT IF
  • 00:22:57.120 --> 00:22:58.210
  • YOU - I FEEL LIKE YOU'RE WANTING ME TO TEACH AND
  • 00:22:58.220 --> 00:23:00.250
  • PREACH TO OTHERS ABOUT YOU.' BECAUSE I WAS SO
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:02.270
  • EXCITED I SAID, 'YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LET ME
  • 00:23:02.280 --> 00:23:05.070
  • KNOW.' NOT LONG AFTER I PRAYED THAT PRAYER, I
  • 00:23:05.080 --> 00:23:08.060
  • CALLED MY MOM IN BEVERLY HILLS.
  • 00:23:08.070 --> 00:23:09.220
  • SHE SAID, 'DOUG, YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO BELIEVE
  • 00:23:09.230 --> 00:23:11.040
  • THIS, BUT I HAD LUNCH WITH SOMEONE FROM NBC.
  • 00:23:11.050 --> 00:23:14.050
  • THEY WANT TO FLY UP TO YOUR CAVE IN A HELICOPTER
  • 00:23:14.060 --> 00:23:16.240
  • AND INTERVIEW YOU.' RIGHT AFTER I PRAYED AND SAID,
  • 00:23:16.250 --> 00:23:19.160
  • 'LORD, IF YOU WANT ME TO WITNESS FOR YOU,
  • 00:23:19.170 --> 00:23:20.290
  • YOU LET ME KNOW.' THIS IS A PICTURE OF MY MOM
  • 00:23:21.000 --> 00:23:23.000
  • AT MY CAVE. SHE FLEW UP IN A HELICOPTER.
  • 00:23:23.010 --> 00:23:24.270
  • THEY DID A NATIONAL INTERVIEW. IT WAS ALL OVER THE
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:27.010
  • COUNTRY THAT DAY. MY FRIENDS IN JAIL SAID THEY SAW IT THREE
  • 00:23:27.020 --> 00:23:29.290
  • TIMES IN ONE DAY. (LAUGHTER) AND SO, FROM THAT TIME
  • 00:23:30.000 --> 00:23:34.140
  • TO THIS, GOD'S JUST OPENED DOORS FOR ME
  • 00:23:34.150 --> 00:23:36.190
  • TO BE SHARING WITH OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:36.200 --> 00:23:38.180
  • HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:23:38.190 --> 00:23:40.190
  • THIS IS A PICTURE OF - I'VE BEEN BACK
  • 00:23:40.200 --> 00:23:42.090
  • TO THE CAVE SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE YEARS.
  • 00:23:42.100 --> 00:23:45.000
  • THIS IS OUR SON MICAH WHEN HE WAS LIKE SEVEN
  • 00:23:45.010 --> 00:23:46.250
  • YEARS OLD. HE HIKED UP THERE WITH ME.
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:48.060
  • THIS IS THE WATERFALL AND THE POOL RIGHT OUTSIDE MY
  • 00:23:48.070 --> 00:23:50.000
  • CAVE. I WENT BACK UP WITH THE WHOLE CREW.
  • 00:23:50.010 --> 00:23:52.160
  • THAT'S KAREN IN THE MIDDLE WITH STEPHEN AND - I WENT
  • 00:23:52.170 --> 00:23:56.220
  • BACK ONE YEAR AND I ACTUALLY BROUGHT ANOTHER
  • 00:23:56.230 --> 00:23:58.160
  • BIBLE AND I LEFT IT IN THE CAVE - JUST IN CASE.
  • 00:23:58.170 --> 00:24:02.000
  • KIND OF A LITTLE SENTIMENTAL THING THAT I DID.
  • 00:24:02.010 --> 00:24:04.160
  • BUT MY IMMEDIATE FAMILY IS ALL PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:24:04.170 --> 00:24:09.210
  • MY FATHER, MY MOTHER - I WAS WITH MOM WHEN SHE DIED.
  • 00:24:09.220 --> 00:24:12.060
  • I WAS WITH MY BROTHER WHEN HE DIED.
  • 00:24:12.070 --> 00:24:14.020
  • AND I REMEMBER I WAS OUT WALKING WITH MY BROTHER
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:17.130
  • ONE DAY - FALCON WENT TO SCHOOL.
  • 00:24:17.140 --> 00:24:19.240
  • HE GOT A COLLEGE EDUCATION. HE TRIED TO WORK FOR DAD
  • 00:24:19.250 --> 00:24:21.240
  • AS LONG AS HIS HEALTH WOULD PERMIT.
  • 00:24:21.250 --> 00:24:23.230
  • AND YOU CAN TELL I'M THE BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY.
  • 00:24:23.240 --> 00:24:26.210
  • THIS WAS AT MY BROTHER'S WEDDING.
  • 00:24:26.220 --> 00:24:28.240
  • I KIND OF HAD TO COME OUT OF THE CAVE
  • 00:24:28.250 --> 00:24:30.040
  • AND YOU COULD TELL. AND I WAS WALKING WITH MY
  • 00:24:30.050 --> 00:24:35.010
  • BROTHER ONE DAY AND HE SAID, 'DOUG, YOU'RE
  • 00:24:35.020 --> 00:24:37.220
  • LUCKY.' AND I THOUGHT, 'WOW.' I SAID, 'YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:24:37.230 --> 00:24:42.000
  • THE HOUSE IN MIAMI BEACH ON THE WATER.
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:43.250
  • YOU'VE GOT THE BOAT. YOU'VE GOT THE NEW CARS.
  • 00:24:43.260 --> 00:24:46.250
  • YOU'VE GOT ALL THE THINGS THAT THE WORLD WANTS.'
  • 00:24:46.260 --> 00:24:50.070
  • HE SAID, 'DOUG, YOU'RE LUCKY.' HE SAID, 'I'D GIVE
  • 00:24:50.080 --> 00:24:53.220
  • EVERYTHING I HAVE IF I COULD HAVE YOUR LUNGS AND
  • 00:24:53.230 --> 00:24:56.070
  • LIVE A LITTLE LONGER.' HE SAID, 'GOD ISN'T FAIR.'
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:59.240
  • - MY BROTHER SAID - HE SAID, 'I'M SO SMART BUT I'M
  • 00:24:59.250 --> 00:25:02.290
  • SICK.' AND HE SAID, 'YOU'RE SO HEALTHY BUT
  • 00:25:03.000 --> 00:25:06.040
  • YOU'RE STUPID.' (LAUGHTER) AND, YOU KNOW, MY BROTHER,
  • 00:25:06.050 --> 00:25:13.290
  • HE BASICALLY SAID, 'I KNOW I'M DYING.
  • 00:25:14.000 --> 00:25:19.020
  • I WOULD GIVE EVERYTHING IF I COULD LIVE
  • 00:25:19.030 --> 00:25:21.090
  • A LITTLE LONGER. I WOULDN'T CARE ABOUT ANY
  • 00:25:21.100 --> 00:25:24.000
  • OF THE STUFF - ANY OF THE FAME - IF I COULD JUST
  • 00:25:24.010 --> 00:25:26.100
  • LIVE A LITTLE LONGER.' AND I SAID, 'FALCON, DO YOU
  • 00:25:26.110 --> 00:25:29.170
  • WANT ME TO PRAY WITH YOU?' HE USED TO TEASE ME WHEN
  • 00:25:29.180 --> 00:25:30.270
  • I PRAYED, 'OH YEAH,' HE SAID, 'DOUG, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:25:30.280 --> 00:25:33.080
  • TO PRAY OVER THE FOOD. GO AHEAD.
  • 00:25:33.090 --> 00:25:34.230
  • RUB A DUB DUB, THANKS FOR THE GRUB.' HE USED TO
  • 00:25:34.240 --> 00:25:36.110
  • TEASE - (LAUGHTER) - BUT, YOU KNOW, WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:25:36.120 --> 00:25:39.000
  • DYING I SAID, 'FALCON, DO YOU WANT ME TO PRAY?'
  • 00:25:39.010 --> 00:25:41.290
  • HE SAID, 'YES, PLEASE.' AND WHAT PROFIT IS
  • 00:25:42.000 --> 00:25:45.270
  • IT IF YOU GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD?
  • 00:25:45.280 --> 00:25:47.090
  • IF YOU'RE FAMOUS - IF YOU'VE GOT FORTUNE - IF
  • 00:25:47.100 --> 00:25:48.210
  • YOU DON'T HAVE LIFE, YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.
  • 00:25:48.220 --> 00:25:51.130

  • 00:25:51.140 --> 00:25:52.280
