Data:(Changing the subject) Hey, any of you guys ever hear of Detroit?
Mouth: Soitenly. That's where Motown started. It's also got the highest murder rate in the country.
Data: Well let me tell you what. That's where we're moving when we lose our house tomorrow.
Mikey: You shut up about that stuff. It'll never happen. My dad'll fix it.
Brand: Yeah, sure he will. If he gets his next four hundred paycheques by tomorrow afternoon.
Mikey: That's wrong Brand. It won't happen!
When the subject of saving the Goon Docks comes up, Mikey and Brand imply that the financial problems hinge on Mr Walsh being unable to pay bills/enough money to keep Troy's father from foreclosing.
Why is Mr Walsh the only one responsible when we know that there are other families living there who should be at least partly responsible for the financial security of the area. Why would Data's family be affected by the Walsh's inability to pay their own bills?
