    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 7: BRODY: I FIRST OF ALL DID IT FOR PUBLICITY BECAUSE I WANT TO GET WELL KNOWN BECAUSE I'M GOING TO GIVE AWAY I THINK 50 MILLION DOLLARS WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR. I'M GOING TO TRY AND MAKE SOME HIT RECORDS AND A FEW MOVIES AND SET UP A FOUNDATION LIKE THE FORD FOUNDATION AND GIVE MONEY TO THE POOR. BASICALLY MY ULTIMATE AIM IN LIFE IS TO HAVE 14 CHILDREN, A BIG DOG AND A CHICKEN FARM UP IN CONNECTICUT. WELL, I PERSONALLY THINK THAT MAYBE I'LL BE SETTING A NEW TREND. LIKE, I THINK THAT IF PEOPLE LIKE ONASSIS OR THE KENNEDYS OR SOME OF THESE PEOPLE USE SOME OF THEIR MONEY AND GIVE TO THE POOR INSTEAD OF FOUNDATIONS. IF EVERYBODY JUST GAVE ONE MILLION DOLLARS....IF EVERY MILLIONAIRE GAVE ONE MILLION DOLLARS TO ONE FOUNDATION AND SAID LOOK, LET'S REALLY GO INTO THIS AND LET'S GET FOOD TO THE POOR. I DON'T REALLY JUST WANT TO CURE THE PROBLEMS OF THE UNITED STATES, I WANT TO TRY AND CURE THE PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD."
