because baskets are gonna run down the court again. ?? I Believe but maybe that only goes so far as something like this.??

Hey guys, Iīm preparing a class to post here about the latest movie "breakthrough". I transcribed the trailer but I canīt get these two sentences in red. Can you help me please ? (Video)

Rise and shine, breakfast is ready in ten minutes. And donīt make me come back up there!

This is our town, itīs a close-knit community. A kind of place where everyone knows everyone.

I missed you!

Hey, how are you girls? And weīre always there for each other.

Nice sermon pastor!

Well what do you guys have on for the rest of the day?

Well, John has a basketball game.

Yeah, Iīve seen this guy hoop it up around here. This kid is so lit!

Text your mom tomorrow and tell her when and where to pick you up and donīt do anything stupid.

Love you guys.

Boys, get off the ice! Weīre training for the Olympics, sir!


Heīs been underwater for more than 15 minutes Itīs gonna be a recovery, not a rescue.

I got something.

We got him!

We’ve done everything medically possible. Thereīs nothing more we can do.

Please God, send your Holy Spirit, this is my son.

A fourteen-year-old, St. Charles boy, who spent 15 minutes trapped underwater is continuing to fight for his life.

I donīt believe John will survive the night. You donīt know my son. He is a fighter. So I need you to be the best for John and you just let God do the rest.

You are my pride and joy, I canīt wait to see you because baskets are gonna run down the court again. (01:41)

The Smith family asks for one thing: please pray for John.

In the water that day, I was ready to give up but then I hear this voice telling me: go back.

Either I’m nuts or Godīs talking to you. But I donīt believe in God.

I Believe but maybe that only goes so far as something like this. (02:00)

Iīm your pastor. Iīm supposed to walk alongside you for as long as it takes.

Did you see the Facebook page? Itīs gone viral!

Tommy, I hope is gonna be okay.

Weīre not gonna get through this alone. Whatever you have for me

From Bryan

From John

I surrender

Shoot those baskets and run up and down (the) court again.
   I put "the" in parentheses, because she probably said it, but she was choked up, so she couldnīt speak clearly.
I believe, but maybe that only goes so far with something like this.

Toward the beginning, it isnīt "I missed you". Itīs "Hi, Miss J"
About 1:15, itīs "This ainīt my son", not "This is my son"
Near the end: "I hope heīs going to be OK"

Youīre great!

Bruce: Like you heard; I also hear "this ainīt my son" in min 1:15 ... but, when going on with the video, she says to the doctor "You donīt know my son", so, could it be she didnīt pronounce the words as expected in that part either?... Or maybe heīs been adopted...
Thanks in advance!

I interpreted the statement as saying that the boy there is not her son as she knows him (Is he in a coma or something?), and she wants "her son" back.

oh!!!  I understand! Thanks a million, Bruce, like always you are of so much help!

That makes sense to me, too, Bruce.

I have been listening to this clip multiple times (in class). And now I hear " send your Holy Spirit to save my son. "
Am I crazy?
