Jack is bailed out from the prison and living in Miss Woolly's residence:

Terry: I mean, you've got to start living, yeah? You know, the past doesn't equal the future.
Jack: What does that mean?
Terry: It means that you're entitled to some happiness, Jack. So you go out. You have a good time. Anything you're not sure about, any problems, you just call me, okay? And don't pay any attention to all that Forefront nonsense because that's all it is.

Is word "because" really needed?

More natural: Jack is out on bail and . . . ."


You can get bailed out of jail, not prison. You can be paroled from prison, not jail.

Terry: I mean, you've got to start living, yeah? You know, the past doesn't equal the future.


Jack: What does that mean?


Terry: It means that you're entitled to some happiness, Jack. So you go out. You have a good time. Anything you're not sure about, any problems, you just call me, okay? And don't pay any attention to all that Forefront nonsense, because that's all it is.

No, but it helps. You could say: . . . all that Forefront nonesense. That's all it is.
