They basically gave James advice to get a life. Chicken Man has done little with his life and tells James not to end up like him. He says that James is better than hanging out by a corner doing nothing. He tells James to educate himself and work hard.James's stepsister and his father's daughter from a previous marriage, Jacqueline (affectionately called "Jack") served as more of an aunt than a sister to James. During high school, when James rebelled against his mother and school, Ruth sent him to Kentucky to stay with Jack.She tried her best to steer James the right direction.
