N/A - They're Playing Her Song

Previously on 90210: Oh, my God, I'm a terrible mother.
"Dear Ryan, I'm so sorry.
Jacques is better off without me.
" She's gone.
I'm not gonna tell anybody that we hooked up.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
- What the hell, man? - Ahem.
Sorry.
- Are you okay? Fine, whatever.
I smoked a little weed.
I'm your guidance counsellor.
You can tell me anything.
I found out my dad is a child pornographer.
We can totally hang out together at the party.
But I can't take you as my date.
Ha, ha.
Victor wants me to go with Joe Jonas.
You don't deserve to be treated that way.
And next up, my favourite new song.
I can't stop singing it and I'm guessing you can't either.
- Aah! - Oh, my God.
It's your song.
- It's literally everywhere.
- Eyes on the road.
- Sorry, sorry.
- Well, turn it up.
Oh, my God.
Hello to good times Goodbye to bad times You and I together Moving on is so much better Nay, yo.
Oh, hey, you just drove by our beach.
Wait.
Are we going to another beach? I'm not allowed to get freckles.
Everybody chill.
We're going to the same beach.
I have to make a pit stop and pick up Ivy.
"Ivy" Ivy? Since when are you two friends? Okay, wardrobe aside, she's not as lame as I thought.
Uh, she cheated on my brother.
Technically, they were broken up.
And there were extenuating circumstances.
Like what? Like Oscar manipulating her Jasper-style.
Trust me, she really needs a friend right now.
- Eyes on the road! - Oh.
Okay, sorry, sorry.
- Will you turn this part up? - Yeah.
Hi.
Hurry, we're losing tanning time.
What up? I don't think my board's gonna fit.
It's cool.
You know what? I'm gonna drive myself because, like No, no, it's okay.
We'll make it work.
Right? Yeah, definitely.
Lay it across so the surfboard doesn't scratch my Bentley.
Ah.
- Hey, let's see that board.
Whoa.
- Ha, ha.
Sorry, I'm a little wet because I've been surfing.
It's okay.
Just so you guys know, I'm not, like, really big on tanning.
Oh.
Me neither.
I'm not supposed to freckle.
- Okay.
- All right.
To the beach, bitches.
Hey, do you wanna quiz me on calculus? - Uh, no.
- Okay, let me put it to you differently.
- Uh, will you quiz me on calculus? - Uh, no.
Come on, dude.
I helped you, uh, do that thing.
- What thing? - I can't think of anything right now.
I'm positive in our friendship, I helped you with something.
- Hey, guys.
- Hey.
Yo.
Just got back last night.
Went to visit my dad on set.
He's shooting that talking dog movie.
Little inside scoop, the dog can't actually talk.
Look, you guys, I'm sorry about the other night.
You mean driving high? You could have killed us, man.
Yeah, I know.
I screwed up.
It won't happen again.
- Cool.
- Yeah, whatever.
I guess we all make mistakes, right? Uh, gotta go, guys.
You were broke and I took you out to Mozza.
Bam.
That was to repay me for updating your lame-ass music collection.
Bam.
Whatever.
I don't care.
Glad you're back, Teddy.
Getting tired of hanging out with that joker.
- See you.
- Later.
- Oh! - Oh! Sorry.
Oh, ha, ha.
- Sorry.
- No, I'm I was texting.
Yeah, ha, ha, I'm cramming.
- Right.
Ahem.
- Yeah.
Well, I should go.
Oh, yeah, right.
Yeah.
Cool.
I'll see you later.
Cool.
And I may be in the minority here, but I think that the Sleepy Planet sleep training programme is better than the Weissbluth model.
I mean, it's usually one rough night.
But after that, the babies sleep 10 to 12 hours.
Sounds great.
Well, this is a very impressive resumé.
Certified in infant CPR, three years at Ocean Hills Nursery School.
You must really love children.
I do.
And when I'm taking care of one, that child is my top priority.
What's the saying that the post office has? "Neither rain nor sleet nor gloom of night" I think nannies should have that too.
I mean, after all, parents are entrusting us with their most precious possession.
All right, well, this is good.
Um, we'll discuss it and I don't think we need to discuss it.
You're hired.
Oh, or you're hired.
Really? Oh, that's great.
- Can you start Monday? - Absolutely.
I have your number.
I'll call you, work out the details.
Great.
I'm thrilled.
It was really nice to meet you both.
Thank you.
You too.
Bye-bye.
Thank you.
Well, I guess the ninth one's the charm.
Thank God.
I was feeling pretty hopeless after the seventh and just suicidal after the eighth.
- Ha, ha.
- Seriously, I have been terrified.
Now that my suspension's over, I've been going crazy trying to figure out how to manage this whole single-father thing.
Well, I knew we'd find someone great eventually.
Thanks to you.
I mean, I don't know my Weissbluth from my Planet Sleepyhead or - Sleepy Planet.
- Sleepy Planet.
What happened to rubbing a little whisky on their gums? - I'm so glad you're hiring a nanny.
- Ha, ha.
Me too.
You know, for the first time since Jen left, I don't feel completely panicked.
Just moderately panicked.
What can we do to bring you down to mildly panicked? Rub a little whisky on my gums? - Ha, ha.
- Hmm? The prodigal son returns, and he may have aced yet another calculus exam.
- Uh, what's going on? - Dad's been with his lawyers all day.
- He looks mad.
- Why? We don't know, but, uh, he wants to talk to you.
- Me? - Mm-hm.
Okay.
- Probably it's - Dad? Uh, Mom said you? Did you talk to somebody at your school about my business? - What? - To your college counsellor.
Did you say anything about my business? Uh Yeah, maybe.
What did you say, exactly? - Uh, I don't remember.
- Navid, this is important.
Did you say anything about underage actresses in my films? I might have.
Why, Dad? What's going on? I am being investigated by the authorities for child pornography.
I could go to jail.
No, I had no idea the song was gonna be this popular when I wrote it.
Spin magazine.
What was I thinking? Uh, just about staying positive.
You know, like, no matter what, staying open to the good times, moving on from the bad.
Thank you so much.
Yes, of course.
Call any time with questions.
All right, bye.
They're doing a feature on me, a four-page spread.
I do the pictures tomorrow.
My publicist Renee said it's gonna be like this whole profile on me.
I mean, my likes, my dislikes, my ideal date.
- Oh.
- Ha, ha.
My beauty regimen.
Can you not rain on my parade right now? - How am I raining on your parade? - By judging me? - Ade, I'm not.
- Navid, it is written all over your face.
Look, I know Javier wrote the song, but I sang it.
Okay? Ade, stop.
It's not about that.
I'm having family problems, okay? Oh.
I'm sorry.
Hey, what's going on? Just my dad, he's Oh.
I have to take this, okay? Uh, fine.
Victor, hi.
Heh.
Wait, are you serious? Of course I can be there.
Yeah, I'll see you soon.
Bye.
Ryan Seacrest wants to interview me right now.
- Really? - Ha, ha.
I guess somebody bailed last minute.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I know this is really bad timing No, no, no.
It's okay.
Get ready.
- Shoot, where's my lipstick? - Ha, ha.
- Wait, do you wanna have dinner? - Yeah.
How about 8? Yes! I found it.
Oh, tonight's totally not gonna work.
I booked studio time, but how about tomorrow? - Um, yeah.
Sure.
- Okay, good.
That way, we can definitely talk.
- I'd like that.
- Ha, ha.
Me too.
I love you.
- I'm gonna be on Ryan Seacrest.
- Ha, ha.
- Aah! Ha, ha.
- Go, go, go.
Mwah.
Wow, what a great place.
Thanks.
I lucked out.
Almost got stuck living in the dorms.
Hi.
Is this the famous Annie? Hi.
Of course, if I lived in the dorms, I might have had privacy.
Oh, who needs privacy? Annie, these are my roommates.
- I'm Julia.
And this is Wes and Aliyah.
- Nice to meet you.
- You too.
- Charlie, music.
- Oh, yes, ma'am.
- Oh, and chips.
- Get your own chips.
- I'm already sitting.
- So you're a senior, yeah? - Yes.
Oh, I remember being a senior.
You should.
It was last year.
I mean the feeling.
The excitement, the possibilities.
Going to sleep without 600 pages of reading hanging over your head.
- You check out Bowser's reading list? - All Derrida, all the time.
- Ooh.
Intense.
- Long-winded.
- Brilliant.
- Totally brilliant.
Is Derrida a professor of yours? No, uh, he's a French philosopher.
Charlie, we're boring her.
We're boring me.
So do you know where you wanna go to college yet? Oh, uh, no.
But I definitely want to apply here and USC.
And Carnegie Mellon actually has a great theatre programme, so - It's in Pittsburgh.
- Don't be a snob.
- I wasn't.
- You said Pittsburgh - You're reading into it, you always do.
- I wasn't.
l Jeez, you guys.
Take it down a notch.
You're not dating anymore.
True.
Fight with her.
I don't fight with her.
That's what's so nice.
- Whatever.
Got salsa? - Uh, I'm sitting.
You know where it is.
Okay.
- Oh, hey.
- Hi.
Um, I was just - I'm gonna come back later, okay? - No, wait, wait.
Hey, hey.
We need, uh, to talk about what happened.
Oh, uh, what almost happened.
I think that'll be the best way for us to put it behind us.
Otherwise, it'II fester? Yeah.
I mean, you're right.
Um - It's just that it was It was so - Weird? Incredibly weird.
I know.
Look, I was feeling really insecure and that whole thing with Joe Jonas and You were there for me.
And I confused that for something else and I'm really sorry that I made things awkward.
No, it wasn't your fault.
Trust me.
l I was in a strange place too.
And I guess every once in a while, you know, people are bound to go through this with their friends and it's - Yeah, it's inevitable? - Yeah.
I mean, hence the term "friends with benefits.
" Ha, ha.
Uh, not that I got a benefit from you.
It's just It's common, right? Ha, ha.
It doesn't mean anything.
Exactly.
Means nothing.
- So we can move past it? - Consider it moved past.
- Great, ha, ha.
- Awesome.
Because I can only handle so much stress in my life.
My dad, he's kind of maxing me out.
Oh, no.
Are things still bad? Yeah.
I'll be fine, as long as I don't go home.
Figure I'll set up a cot here and Oh, use those emergency showers in the science lab.
Ha, ha.
Come on.
You guys are gonna figure things out.
You have a great relationship.
Had.
I screwed up bigtime.
Then apologise.
As a friend once told me, "You don't wanna let things fester.
" Sounds like a pretty cool guy, your friend.
Oh, yeah, he has his moments.
Clearly, Hemingway's commenting on man's relationship with nature.
But what is he saying about man's relationship with man? Hi.
Sorry to interrupt, but there's an emergency.
An emergency? What? What happened? Is he okay? Oh, nothing happened.
He's fine.
I have an audition.
An audition? Is that an emergency? What happened to "neither rain nor sleet nor gloom of night"? - Miami.
- Wait, Erin.
And on page 92, Santiago says: "You are killing me, fish, but you have a right to.
" Is he teething? You should give him something to suck on.
Thanks, but he's fine.
Let's focus.
Uh, so he goes on: "Never have I ever seen a greater or more beautiful or calmer or a more noble thing than you.
" Yeah.
- Have you checked his diaper? - His diaper's fine.
Oh.
His diaper's I don't know.
I'Il I'll be right back.
Hey, Deb, it's Ryan.
Uh, I'm back up to completely panicked and I don't know who else to call.
Um, hi.
Don't you know frowning that hard will increase your future Botox bill? - What are you reading? - I'm about a hundred pages in and I still have no idea.
Charlie and Julia kept going on about how brilliant this Derrida guy is.
And Julia is? Charlie's ex-girlfriend.
Really smart.
Really cool.
- And really threatening? - Really, really threatening.
Well, have you marked your territory at least? What are you talking about? I don't mean have you peed on him.
- Ha, ha.
- I mean, have you locked him down? Have you had the "let's be exclusive" talk yet? Oh, no.
And I don't wanna push.
- Well, how's the sex? - Between Charlie and Julia? Judging by their chemistry, it was probably pretty good.
No, I mean, between the two of you.
Mm.
We haven't had sex yet.
Oh, my God, that's a problem.
He's a college guy.
If you wanna lock him down, you have to give him the key.
- To your - I got it.
I got it.
Yo, man, I've been running on empty for ten minutes.
I told you, the service here sucks, kid.
Sorry, we just changed shifts.
Can I get you a refill? Uh Yes.
Yes, I would love a refill.
Thank you.
Wow, I take back what I said about the service.
I'll let her service me any time.
- Yeah, no kidding.
- So hot.
Girl like that will help me get over Ivy for sure.
So do it.
Ask her out.
You never know.
Sometimes hot girls go for ugly guys so they can have the upper hand.
- Look who's funny today.
- Ha, ha.
- Iced tea, right? - Yeah, thanks.
- Ahem.
- No problem.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Let me know if there's anything else you want.
Oh, man, it's on.
She seemed really into you.
Heh.
Yeah, hilarious.
Shut up, all right? Whatever, do your thing.
Get her number, man.
I'll tell you what.
I'm gonna let you have this one.
I'm beat.
I'm gonna head home.
See you guys later.
- Later.
- Peace, man.
How can I be expected to keep every single document? I'll call you back, Peter.
What is it? l I just want to apologise, Dad.
I was mad at you when I went to the counsellor and I never thought that this would happen.
Well, maybe you should have thought about it.
Do you realise what you have done? - I'm trying to apologise.
- Too late for that.
My records are being subpoenaed.
I'm under investigation.
All because my ahmagh son couldn't keep his big mouth shut.
You're not in trouble because of my big mouth.
You're in trouble because you broke the law.
- Get out of here.
- You need to stop blaming everyone and take some responsibility for it.
Get out, now! Gladly.
You coming in? Are you ready? Where's the underwear part? - They're crotchless.
- I'm not going crotchless.
Ugh.
Do you or do you not want to lock Charlie down? Oh, fine, fine.
I brought backup because I know what a prude you are.
Okay, those are a bit better.
They go with these.
- You're crazy.
- Just take them.
Girls? Yeah, come in, Mom.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Mrs.
W.
Hey, those aren't awful shoes.
- Oh, thanks.
- No problem.
I would rather shave my eyebrows than wear them, but for you, they're Gotcha.
I just wanted to know if you were staying for dinner, Naomi.
Oh, um, actually we're gonna go out for dinner and then we're gonna go and see a movie after, if that's okay? - No problem.
- Oh, you don't have to be sad.
You can totally make dinner for me another night.
Terrific.
- Take these.
- I'm not wearing pasties.
Okay.
What about edible underwear? I mean, I didn't actually bring some because I wasn't sure if they would spoil.
- But I could easily procure some.
- You know what? I'm good.
I'm good.
- Okay.
Yeah.
- Okay.
- Hey.
Come on in.
- Hi.
- Jack's sleeping.
- Oh, great.
- Hey, Mr.
Matthews.
- Hey.
- Bye, Mom.
We're heading out.
- Okay.
Hi, Ryan.
Oh, it looks like you have a little spit-up on your shirt.
No, that's just the pattern.
Ha, ha, never mind.
- It's nice.
- Bye, Naomi.
I'm very sorry I'm late.
I had to stay after school - for the parent-teacher conferences - Oh, no problem.
Jack's been an angel.
This way.
- You rubbed whisky on his gums? - Ha, ha.
Shh.
No, thank you for taking him.
Really.
Oh, of course.
And I lined up some more interviews for tomorrow.
Don't worry, none of them are actresses.
- You didn't have to do that.
- Honestly, it's my pleasure.
I need to stay busy right now.
The new manager of the Beach Club doesn't start for another week.
No, but at least he's letting you keep your job.
Well, I do have personal-assistant experience.
I'll doubt he'll ask me to alphabetize his nail polish.
Jen didn't make you do that, did she? It's okay.
It was better than being out there pounding the pavement.
- That was pretty bleak.
- Yeah.
I just never anticipated how difficult it would be to re-enter the workforce.
And then again, I never anticipated having to re-enter the workforce.
No, no, I get it.
I mean, you know, I didn't anticipate this, the whole single-parent thing, so No, I still can't get the hang of cooking for one.
So on nights like this, when it's just me and a big vat of bolognese, it gets a little depressing, ha, ha.
Not as depressing as having microwave popcorn for dinner.
Okay, that's it, you're staying.
- Oh, no, I wasn't trying - Please.
There's only so much bolognese one woman can eat.
Well, okay.
Uh Heh.
But we have a reservation.
I understand, but it will be another 30 minutes.
Would you like to wait at the bar until something opens up? Yeah, we can wait at the bar.
Okay, uh, ha, ha Would you ask Andrew Jackson to wait at the bar? Is he with CAA? No, he's right here, with his buddies.
Maybe this will help something open up.
Oh, it will in 30 minutes.
Oh, uh, yeah, that's cool.
Keep it anyway.
That didn't go too well.
It's fine, okay? As long as we're spending time together.
Exactly.
- Adrianna? - Oh, my God.
Hi.
How are you? Hey, guys.
Oh, what are you doing here? We're having dinner.
Well, they're having dinner.
I'm on a fabulous cleanse, only clear drinks.
Water, vodka.
Honey, you're looking a little flat.
Fix her.
You never know when paparazzi are gonna jump out.
Remember, poof from underneath.
Oh, hi.
Oh, Navid, this is Renee.
Oh, right, publicist.
And Ilon and Ginny, they did my hair and makeup for the Spin shoot.
- Very nice to meet you.
- You too, sweetie.
Nice hair.
Extensions? Ha, ha.
Uh - No.
- Yeah, right.
- Where you sitting? - Uh, we're actually waiting for a table.
- What? - I'll handle it.
I tried.
It's not gonna Excuse me.
That is Adrianna Tate-Duncan.
Oh, as a matter of fact, so is that.
It's the number one single in the country.
Perhaps you've heard it.
It's her song.
I am so sorry.
I will have something immediately.
Forget it.
They'll eat with us.
But you are comping our meal.
Of course.
This actually works out really well.
Chayo and Danny Goode are on their way over.
Do you know them? Bigtime producers.
We get them to collaborate with you and game over.
Bingo.
Dunzo.
Back up the money truck.
Oh, uh, do you mind? No, of course not.
Ha, ha.
- It's It's fine.
- Perfect.
Wow, big improvement over microwave popcorn.
Oh, well, I'm flattered.
And you should be.
Yeah.
You know what? Sometimes when I'm feeling real crazy, I add a little bit of Cheez Whiz.
Oh, I didn't know you were such a gourmand.
- Let me grab - Sorry.
- It's all right.
- Oops.
Seriously, though, I haven't had a home-cooked meal in forever.
Ha, ha.
Well, I haven't had adult company in forever.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but Hey, you don't have to explain, you know, I work with teenagers.
- The adult company is very welcome.
- Ha, ha.
You haven't said "like" or "totally" once tonight.
Well, the night is still, like, totally young.
Ha, ha.
- Oh, sorry, sorry.
- Oh.
I'm sorry.
- Just, uh - Oh, okay.
I'll go that way.
Oh, that is excellent drying technique.
Thank you.
Yeah, you know, people are always crediting the dryer, but, really, I think it starts with the washer.
Wow, is it, um, pathetic that the first compliment I've gotten in what feels like forever is for my dishwashing? Well, for the record, you also have a great smile.
- Ha, ha.
- See? It's really great.
- Get you another? - Yeah, please.
Hey.
- I'm Jeff.
- Teddy.
So you been here before? Um, no, I haven't.
And, actually, I was just leaving.
- Can I have the cheque, please? - Yeah.
- Here you go.
- Just one second.
Okay.
This time, I'm getting her number.
Dude, she doesn't like you.
Take a hint.
Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, all right? You don't know that.
Maybe I'm just I'm being too subtle.
Trust me.
You haven't.
Um You might have noticed that I've gotten quite a few, uh, refills.
Truth is, I'm not even really that thirsty.
- Your phone's ringing.
- Is it? It is.
Huh.
Wow, assaulting my game and you're not even here.
Impressive.
- Hey, did I leave my wallet there? - Um - Huh, yep, you did.
- Shoot.
Why, do you need it? I mean, we can bring it to you.
- Where you at? - Uh, the gas station.
Oh, I just found money in my pocket.
I'll get my wallet from you tomorrow.
All right, cool.
Peace, man.
I forgot my wallet.
You think I could come back tomorrow and settle up? - I swear I'm good for it.
- It's not gonna happen.
Come up with the cash.
First time I heard her, I was like, "This girl has a fabulous" - Do you rap at all? - Um, no.
Not really.
But she could.
I'm telling you, she's fabulous.
T.
I.
might be up for a little something.
Oh, how fabulous would that be? - So fabulous.
- Totally fabulous.
Oh.
- So how is everything? - Fabulous.
Yo, my peeps are heading down to Voyeur.
- They're playing you.
Can you come? - Of course.
I mean, if it's okay with you.
Is everything okay? I don't know.
It's just my mom.
She wants me to come home so my dad can yell at me again.
Oh, so you can't come to Voyeur? No, Ade, I can't, okay? I have stuff going on at home, stuff I wanted to talk to you about.
I'm sorry.
Hey, let's go for a walk, okay? Uh, guys, can you wait like five minutes? Of course.
I'll watch you guys eat dessert.
I hear the key lime pie is fabulous.
Don't worry about it, okay? I should go home.
We'll talk later.

It was nice meeting you guys.
Bye.
Mwah.
We are all set.
Let I've always wanted to go.
I'm so excited.

Exactly.

It's all good.
Whoa, are you okay to get home? Yeah, I only had a few.
I'll drive you.
Yeah, it's a great song.
And a great song is a great song.
But it's even greater when it's on vinyl.
Yeah.
Well, I have a lot to learn.
Well, I'll teach you.
- Can you hear that? - Hear what? The scratches, the imperfections.
- It It's not digital.
It's - Alive.
Exactly.
Yeah, I see what you mean.
There's so much I gotta teach you.

See you later.
All right, I'm back.
Ready to get yelled at again.
Hey.
What's wrong? Mom, are you? The police, they subpoenaed your father's records.
Yeah, yeah, I know.
But he has good lawyers.
What? What is it? He left.
What do you mean he left? He was afraid he'd get sent to jail, so Where'd he go? Back to Iran.
- What? - He's gone, Navid.
Thank you.
See you guys later.
- Hey.
- Hi.
So, uh, you okay? I'm completely mortified, but other than that, I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- No, I shouldn't have No, I shouldn't have let them in.
I just didn't think that You know, I thought there would be something leading up.
No.
Stop, please.
I'm so embarrassed.
No, don't be.
I, uh I just didn't think you wanted to yet.
You know, I thought we were taking it slow.
I know.
I know, but I thought maybe you didn't wanna take it so slow anymore.
Did I make you feel that way? Okay, uh Look, the truth is I have only had sex with one person.
And I was feeling really intimidated by Julia.
And Naomi told me that I had to lock you down and have sex with you and And it sounds so stupid now that I'm saying it out loud.
No, no, it doesn't.
I just wish you would have told me.
Yeah.
Well, it's not exactly easy talking about, you know, really personal stuff.
It should be when you're dating.
- What? - Well, nothing.
It's just, you know, there's some stuff that you're not comfortable talking to me about.
Like what? Like how you got your scar.
Not that you have to.
l I shouldn't No, uh, you're right.
Remember I told you I used to spend summers at my uncle's lake house? Yeah, in Minnesota, right? Yeah, exactly.
Well, going down to the lake house was the only chance to see my dad.
Sometimes he'd be there for a few weeks.
Other times, he would disappear and leave me with my uncle.
Yeah, Liam told me.
Right.
Did he tell you that our uncle was a mean drunk? Well, he was.
And he would take a whack at me now and then.
- Did you say anything? - No.
I thought if I stopped going down to the lake house, I would never get to see my dad.
- It's dumb, I know.
- No, it's not dumb.
Anyway, one summer, my dad was away more than usual and my uncle got sick of me being around.
He was drinking all the time.
And he was beating me up all the time.
And, uh, one day, he got a belt.
And that's the last time I went there.
That's how I got my scar.
Well, thank you for telling me.
So you still wanna lock me down? - Definitely.
- Good.
- Thanks.
- No problem.
Look.
I don't know what's going on with me.
I'm just confused.
Yeah, I know you are.
Are you newly confused or have you been confused for a while? I guess it's been a while.
Hmm.
Everyone thinks I got kicked out of boarding school for having girls in my room.
That's not what happened.
I started having these feelings for my roommate.
I thought it was just a one-time thing.
And I thought if I could just get away, it wouldn't happen again.
I mean, I couldn't be - like that.
- Yeah.
I thought it'd go away, but it didn't go away.
And it's not going to.
Thanks for the ride.
Ahem.
Hi.
- You okay? - Um I really need to talk to someone.
- Is Adrianna? - I mean, you.
I need to talk to you.
Please? Can I come in? Yeah.
