Waves (2019) Movie Script

Come on, Mami!
Come on!
Oh, a bridge that
someone's fighting over
A bridge that
someone's fighting over
A bridge so old
so let it go
Where's the bridge
that's gonna take me home?
A bridge that
someone's fighting over
A bridge that
someone's praying over
A bridge so old
so let it go
Wait. Ready? Ready? Ready?
Trust me?
Do you trust me, baby?
Do you trust me?
Do you trust me?
Put your fucking...
Put your hands on the wheel.
- Give me a kiss.
- Put your...
The bridge that
someone's fighting over
A bridge that
someone's fighting for
A bridge so old
so let it go
All right.
No lazy steps.
Let's go ahead and run it off.
I want constant
fluid movement today.
- Is that understood?
- Yes, coach!
And you better come
into every single match
with a plan,
because you better believe
if you don't have a plan,
your rival does.
All right!
Go ahead and pair up.
Find your battle buddies
right now.
I need you to leave
everything on the mat
and keep it
in the circle.
you are future holders
of the great machine.
Let's go!
Every time
you walk out this door,
you look at that sign,
Carpe Diem. Seize the day.
There are no second chances.
There are no second acts.
There is no goddamn
motherfucking second place.
You better come in to every
single match with a plan.
Because if you don't
have a plan,
I can tell you right now,
your rival has a plan,
and it will manifest
itself in your defeat.
And you will lose.
Let's go. Let's go.
Let's go. And up!
Over your heads.
Over your head. Hold it!
...five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four,
five, six seven, eight.
One, two...
...cannot be taken down,
I am a new machine.
I cannot be taken down,
I am a new machine.
I cannot be taken down,
I am a new machine.
I cannot be taken down,
I am a new machine.
I beat you home?
That's a first.
Yeah. Today was
a long one.
- Long, but good?
- Yeah.
Mmm. I know exactly
how you feel, babe.
- You want some food?
- Yeah.
I want what they're having.
- It's high protein.
- Yeah.
- How was school?
- It was good.
You do realize there are more
words in the English language
you can use to speak
with your father, yeah?
- School was good.
- Uh-huh.
But practice went over
and I have
a history test tomorrow,
- so I need to start homework.
- Okay.
- All right.
- There you go.
I still need you
down here by 9:00.
- I know.
- All right.
Come on. Okay now I'm gonna
- let my hands down.
- No.
- Come on.
- No, I don't trust myself.
I don't trust myself.
I don't trust myself.
Goddess is
about to arrive.
Don't play like you
don't want me right now.
You're obsessed
with me.
Shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
All right,
one of y'all put a song on.
Like it was cool, but...
Hey, wake up.
- Let's go!
- Yeah, I'm up.
- Downstairs in five.
- All right.
- You ready?
- Yeah.
Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love is not rude.
It doesn't boast.
Love also forgets wrong.
If we spent more time
loving one another,
hate would cease.
So you have a choice.
Love works better.
Love is better for us.
It makes the world better,
but we have to be in action.
How much...
How do you want to love?
How can I love?
Well, you know what,
it could be just by a smile.
- A smile on your face could...
- A smile. Amen.
- ...change somebody's day.
- Yes. Amen.
Now you choose
whether you use
the love correctly.
So I want to remind you
that love is
a four-letter word,
and so is hate.
We're in a world full
of hate right now.
Everybody's pointing a finger
at somebody else.
And you're no good.
And you're no good.
And we're no good.
And they're no good.
Ain't nobody good right now.
So we need love
to bring people back.
There used to be an old thing
when I was growing up
that says it takes a village
to raise a child.
It's gonna take
that same village
to bring us back to love
as a country.
What a difference a day made
Twenty-four little hours
You get in late
last night?
Not really.
Not really, huh?
You're just falling asleep
- in church for no reason?
- No, I mean...
Were you bored with
that service today?
No, I mean, it's just...
How's your shoulder, Ty?
Still sore?
- On and off.
- I'm gonna call Steve.
Just get an appointment
to make sure.
- No, it's fine.
- He's fine.
- You're one to talk.
- I got my eye on it.
You had your eye
on your knee, too.
Look where that got you.
I'm sure he's fine, but we
have a whole season ahead.
And I'm sorry again
I'm gonna miss this one,
but your dad will be there,
and Em will be there,
- and I'll be at the next one.
- No, I can't be there either.
I told you.
Practice got moved.
It's your brother's
first meet.
I have to study.
Everybody else
can't meet that late.
And Bethany's mom says
that we can't...
that's what this is about.
Your friends at
Bethany's house.
Mom, he doesn't
even care if I'm there!
- Very true.
- Do you care if I'm there?
No, I don't care
if you're there.
You do care.
And you should care.
- He doesn't.
- Okay. All right.
There's nothing to worry
about here. And you know why?
Because the wise
and noble father
is gonna be there
to hold it down.
Really? Where is he?
Where is he?
If you see him, will you
send him my way, please?
Shame on you.
If you see him,
send him my way too.
- We can go right now.
- We can go?
- Oh, we can go right now.
- That's what's up?
You think you can
take your old man?
Hold on.
You think
you can mess with this?
- You guys.
- What's up?
- Can we not?
- What's up?
It's that shoulder,
right? Come on.
What's up?
- Did you start?
- Did I start?
I'm just making sure
you started.
- No.
- Did you?
- Dad started.
- Get out my ear.
You let me know
when you're ready.
Yeah, can you not
hit your sister?
- You all right?
- I'm fine, man.
You let me know
when you're ready.
You okay?
You let me know.
You let me know.
Can we not scare
the people, please?
Shh. Quiet. Quiet.
Quiet. Quiet. Quiet.
Come on!
One more.
- Let's go.
- One, one more.
- One more?
- One more.
I see you. I see you.
Come on.
What you... What you got?
What you got? Get in there.
- You good, brah?
- I'm good.
Flex too hard?
You flex too hard?
You got me. You got me.
This hurts.
But it all starts
with a piece of dirt,
and it turns into
something magnificent.
Something that makes
a contribution
to your community.
It's a beautiful thing.
You gotta take pride
in what you do, son.
Never forget that.
Check this out.
Show you this master bedroom.
If you could be
so lucky one day
to have a bedroom
like this bedroom,
then you'd be doing all right.
You'd be doing all right.
Check it out.
You know spaghetti is
Alexis' favorite dish, right?
You should have seen
the first time that she had it.
We got it on video, okay?
We got to find it.
I got to find it for you.
- Dad!
- It's hilarious.
She ate it with her hands,
and it got everywhere.
I'm talking chunks
of meat and red sauce,
just all over the place
like a wild animal.
- Dad, shut up!
- So cute!
So cute.
It was adorable.
It was the most lovely thing.
Oh, my God.
It's beautiful.
It was beautiful.
Plus, you were so cute.
Now in the eye of your mind,
in your mind's eye,
I want you to fixate
on your source code,
on your soul's source of pure
unadulterated inspiration.
Something that is inspiring
to you and you alone.
I want you to look at it.
I want you to take it in.
I want it to be your guiding
light right now, all right?
And then I want you to
repeat after me...
I will not let you down.
I will not
let you down.
You will not
let me down. Repeat.
You will not let me down.
My folks
won't let me down.
My folks won't let me down.
My coach won't let me down.
My coach won't let me down.
I cannot be taken down.
I am a new machine. Say it!
I cannot be taken down.
I am a new machine.
One more time!
I cannot be taken down.
I am a new machine.
One more time with me!
I cannot be taken down.
I am a new machine.
One more time!
I cannot be taken down.
I am a new machine.
All right,
Mavericks on three.
One, two, three.
- Mavericks!
- Mavericks!
Mavericks! Mavericks!
One, two, three!
- You see it?
- Yep.
You see it?
You feel the difference?
Yeah, I feel the difference
all right.
- Can you get up?
- All right. Yeah.
All right. If you did it
the way I taught you,
you would have had him
20 seconds earlier, all right?
Get up.
The kid was
a chump, man.
You may have been
able to pin him quick
because you're faster
and you're stronger,
but your technique...
Getting to State
is about technique.
- You feel me? You good?
- Yeah. I'm good.
Your shoulder's good?
It's not hurting?
- No.
- You sure?
- I'm sure.
- All right. Come on.
Let me see that fireman
one more time.
Come on. Come on.
Clams Casino, nigga
- Emily!
- What?
- Em!
- What?
- Hurry up, man.
- Shut up.
Michael J. Fox looking nigga.
Come on, brah.
- Close my door.
- Close your own door.
- Yo, yo, yo.
- And there... Hello.
- How was your day?
- It was fine.
Could've been better,
but it's cool...
I got a suit fitted.
- For the Maverick Ball?
- Yep.
You're gonna look good.
Oh, your sister's going.
- What group is she going with?
- You think I would know?
She just better not be going with my
ass, all right?
- You are your sister's keeper.
- Since when?
It's not like it's your prom.
Is Alexis excited?
Yeah, I hope so. She's had
her dress for long enough.
- How was your day?
- Exhausting.
Oh, that divorce
is happening.
I have some notes
for you to do.
I keep telling her
if she'd spread her schedule out
and worked Fridays,
she wouldn't be so exhausted.
My patients have me
until Thursday.
Come Friday I want to
be with my babies.
There's my girl.
Good day?
Yeah. Not bad.
- You done with your homework?
- Not yet.
What you
waiting for?
I just came down
to say hi to Mom.
It's a two-second break.
- Oh.
- How's your knee?
The usual.
- Go make your bath.
- Yes, ma'am.
Hey, you didn't take any
of my pain pills, did you?
- No. Why?
- It's all good.
SLAP stands for
Superior Labrum
Anterior and Posterior.
This top area here
is where the biceps tendon
attaches to the labrum.
That's why
you are also feeling pain
running up your arm.
Now, in your case,
if you don't remember
a specific event,
then you could have
aggravated your shoulder
and then over time,
with repetition,
made it worse and worse.
Since it's the labrum,
it's not just
overhead activities.
Any strenuous activity
on the biceps tendon
will enhance it, as well.
Okay, um... I'm sorry.
So, like, what...
What does that mean?
Well, you've done
extreme damage.
You have a level five
out of five SLAP tear.
I've never actually seen
this level tear in person.
Well, I mean,
it's not that bad.
I could easily
push through it.
I'm afraid you need surgery
or you're running the risk of
permanent, irreversible,
But I'm...
But I'm in season right now, so...
I understand. But Tyler,
this is very serious.
I highly recommend you stop
all physical activity
and we get you surgery
as soon as possible.
Wait, what if...
What if we did it, um...
What if we did it
at the end of season
and I could, you know,
I could recover
over the summer?
And I could be ready
for next year for college?
I can't see you
making another match,
let alone
an entire season.
Then, to be honest,
recovery would take much longer
than just the summer.
You're likely never to fully
recover to the way you were,
but the sooner we address
this, the better.
You're young
and you'll heal very well.
It's going
to take time.
I can call your mom if you...
you don't have to do that.
I'll... I'll talk to her.
I'm very sorry, Tyler.
That's one bottle of vodka.
There you go.
- You got it, bud?
- Yeah.
Ty, there's water
coming through my door!
Ty, there's water everywhere.
What are you doing?
Geez. Every practice.
Don't be a pussy.
Let him up!
What's the matter, Ty?
Let's do this.
I'm right here with you. Come on.
Come on. One.
Six. Come on.
Eight. Two more.
One more, baby.
How you doing?
- You done now?
- Yeah, I'm good.
- That's it?
- I'm done.
...broke down in tears today,
and Linda continues to refuse
any type of communication.
- How's it coming?
- Good.
- How many more you got?
- Halfway.
What's this format?
Why's the date over there?
It's the format
she told me to do.
Can you just let me
do my thing?
I don't pay you
to do your thing.
I pay you to do my thing.
- Technically she pays me.
- You know, there you go again.
- What's that attitude about?
- What do you mean?
You know exactly what I mean.
Hey, stop!
Turn it off and look at me.
Look around here for a sec.
Who do you think
keeps all this running, hmm?
Now, your mother may be
great with the patients,
but she don't know nothing
about running a business.
You think if I quit my job
and stopped running
your mother's business,
that you'd have a place
to even
lay that big head
of yours? Huh?
- No.
- Then what's up?
I mean, I just have a lot
going on right now.
Do you really? What,
you think me and your mom
don't got a lot going on?
Wait until you get out
on your own in the world
and have
real responsibilities.
You got to be able
to balance it, Ty.
Now, we talked
about this, brah.
If you can't keep it going,
you can forget about
hanging out with your friends
or running around
with that little
girl of yours. You...
Quit shaking your head
at me, boy.
This is my house.
If you don't like the way
I run things,
then you can be up out.
I told you you didn't
have to work for me
and you didn't
have to train with me.
You asked for that.
That was your choice, right?
And I'm not the one
who chose wrestling,
but if you're gonna
do something,
you might as well
do it right.
I said it before,
I'll say it again.
The world don't give a shit
about you or me.
We are not afforded
the luxury of being average.
Got to work 10 times as hard
just to get anywhere.
Ty, I don't push you
because I want to.
I push you because
I have to.
Do you hear
what I'm saying, son?
- Do you hear what I'm saying?
- Yeah. Yeah.
Man, I look at y'all
sometimes and think of
all the opportunities
you have that I didn't.
Wishing Nana and
Three Papa had done for me.
You don't know
how good you got it.
Pin! Pin!
Get him, Ty!
Pin him down!
Pin him down!
- Yes! Go, Tyler!
- Come on, Ty!
Let's go! Let's go!
- Single leg. Single leg.
- Yeah!
Get his
shoulder down, Ty!
Get his shoulder down.
Come on.
Come on, Tyler!
Can't let him work
like that, Ty! Come on!
Come on, babe!
Get up! Get up!
Match. Dragon win.
Get up!
It's all right, Tyler!
Good job!
It's okay!
It's all right, babe!
It's all right!
Let's go, Williams!
- Let's go!
- You can do better.
You can do better.
Let's do this, Tyler!
Come on now, Tyler!
Come on now, Tyler!
Come on, Ty!
Come on, you got this!
Get up, Tyler!
Get up, babe!
Roll out!
Spring out!
Spring out!
It's okay.
It's okay.
Calm down.
It's all right. It's all right.
He did this to himself
through sheer stupidity!
Watch your voice.
Steve should've told us.
So much
for a scholarship.
I don't know what
the hell he was thinking.
Steve said
he didn't call
because Tyler wanted
to tell us personally.
So he's been lying
to us this whole time?
It's his attitude,
I'm telling you. The boy...
Gonna be somebody,
oh I follow
- Oh and it's so cloudy
- Running showers and the mist so fly
I feel like I haven't
seen you in forever.
I feel the same way.
- I missed you.
- I missed you, too.
Your callouses are
getting better, at least.
Yeah, that's because
I haven't been lifting.
Oh, right. Shit. Sorry.
I'm not really in the mood
right now.
Why not? I mean, it's...
Baby, it's been forever.
I mean...
I know you're under
a lot of pressure right now,
but I'm just getting
really scared.
About what? What's going on?
Are you okay?
I still haven't gotten
my period.
It's been like two,
three weeks.
I don't know. I'm just...
I have nobody
to talk to about it
and I'm just getting
really scared.
Don't be...
Don't be scared.
First of all, you can
always talk to me.
All right?
Look, you can always talk to me.
We're in this together.
I don't want you
to ever feel like
you should be scared
or anything like that.
Look at me. Babe, look at me.
Everything's going
to be okay, all right?
All right?
Come here.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I be up to my feet
I'll wake up feeling weak
Wake me up in a week
- I love you.
- I love you too.
I love you so much.
I think this is it.
- Fucking assholes.
- Just don't look at them.
Why do they
have to do that?
Do what?
You want me to
drop you off here?
- Drop me off?
- I mean, where do you...
What else
do you want me to do?
Are you kidding? Just find...
Get parking. Just park.
- Right here cool?
- Yeah, it's fine.
You know
you're going to go to hell!
- Don't be a murderer!
- Thou shalt not kill!
All right, let me have
everybody's attention.
All right.
Look, these people
out here are crazy, man.
And these women, they carry
guns on them. I seen it.
All right, I also seen them
try to convince
a young woman not to
go through the procedure,
because they promised her
to adopt her child.
And guess what?
They didn't.
Didn't help her out at all.
And guess what?
She's stuck.
They tell people
the worst things
every single day
and I got to take it.
But listen, I'm here
for y'all, all right?
But all I ask in return
is that you're here
for me as well.
So please,
do not go out here and mess
with these crazy women.
Okay? All right.
- Thanks.
- Thank you.
Can we go? Just...
Can we please leave?
You all right?
I just want
to get out of here.
You'll go to hell
for what you've done! Murderer!
- Thou shalt not kill!
- Hey!
Leave them alone!
- Nigger!
- What?
- I said "Nigger!"
- What the fuck
- you just say to me?
- I said "Nigger!"
Don't fucking say
shit like that!
- You can't say that, bitch!
- I said "Nigger!"
No, get in the car, Alexis!
Get in the car!
Don't be saying shit like...
You racist!
- Go!
- Get in the car! Come on.
- Let's go!
- Nigger!
Fuck you, bitch!
I'm sorry. You shouldn't have
had to see that. I'm sorry.
You okay? What happened?
I couldn't do it.
- What?
- I couldn't do it.
What do... What do you mean
you couldn't do it?
I don't...
I don't know.
- I just... I don't know.
- Babe, why didn't you just
do it while we were there?
We could've did it
- while we were at... We...
- I'm just confused.
- I'm just confused.
- I don't have to go...
- Confused about what?
- We need to talk
- about it again.
- Talk about what?
We need to just
talk about it again.
We talked about it! What more
is there to talk about?
Why are you yelling at me?
- I'm not yelling at you.
- You're yelling at me.
- I'm not yelling at you!
- Yes, you are!
No, I'm not!
All right, whatever.
I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry. I'm sorry!
- You don't understand how hard this is.
- It's my body.
- I get it's your body.
- Relax! You...
- No, you don't get it.
You don't get it.
And I... You...
I don't know
if I can do an abortion.
What the fuck are you
talking about?
- Huh?
- I don't know if I can do it.
What do you...
Stop crying! What do you mean
you can't get an abortion?
Fuck you! Don't tell me
to stop crying!
This is my body and you have
no idea what it's like!
I get it's your body!
I know! Whatever.
We're seniors
in high school!
We shouldn't be fucking
having a baby right now. Like...
Yeah, that's your
point of view!
Thank you for
caring about mine.
- Why would I care about an...

What the fuck

Ty, what...
- Oh, my God, Tyler.
- I'm sorry.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
You want to get in the bath?
You should be quiet.
You should be quiet because Mom
and Dad are gonna hear you, okay?
- Okay?
- Okay.
Yes, yes, yes.
Do you want
to take a bath?
Did I wake you?
No, it's fine.
You didn't wake me.
- I'm sorry.
- I know.
I just had a really
bad night, you know?
I know.
I know, I know.
I just had a really
bad night, you know?
- I know. Shh...

I didn't mean to
wake you, you know?
- I didn't mean to...
- I know.
- I didn't mean to...
- Shh, shh, shh.
I didn't mean to.
Ty, you have
to be quiet, please.

I know, it's okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
- I'm sorry. I'm... I'm...
- It's okay. It's okay.
Can you focus on me?
Baby, can you focus on me?
Hands in the soap
Have the faucet's running
And I keep looking at you
Stuck on your phone
and you're stuck in your zone
And you don't have a clue
But I don't wanna give up
Baby, I just want you
to get up
Lately I've been
a little fed up
Wish you would
just focus on me
Can you focus on me?
Baby, can you focus on me?
Can you focus on me
Baby, can you focus on me?
Lazy and broke?
But I feel alone even
when we're alone
And that don't cost a thing
But I don't wanna give up
Your call
has been forwarded...
Baby I just want you
to get up
Lately I've been
a little fed up
Fed up, yeah
Wish you would
just focus on me
Can you focus on me?
Oh, yeah
Baby, can you focus on me?
Yeah, me
Can you focus on me?
Baby, can you focus on me?
Baby, focus
Can't you see
I just wanna love you, baby
Look me in my eyes
I never would've thought that
Feelings could get
thrown in the air
I accidentally
caught that
I need some new boxing gloves
Shit got hectic
Whenever I fought back
For example
Your call
has been forwarded to a...
The fucking thought of you with
somebody else I don't like that
Cellular convos getting
left in the wrong
'Cause I get
so fucking mad
When you don't write back
This isn't a song
I just happen to rhyme
when I get emo
And find time
to write facts
I fucking hate you
But I love you
I'm bad at keeping
my emotions bubbled
You're good
at being perfect
We're good
at being troubled...
I'm fine!
Tyler, what is going on?
I fucking hate you
- But I love you
- I love you
- Tyler! Tyler!
- Hey, man!
We're good
at being troubled
Open the door!
Open the goddamn door, Tyler!
Girl, you fucking
with my emotions
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Girl, you look beautiful.
- No, you look...
- You are.
- You look way more beautiful.
No, that's not true.
I love your dress.
It's cute.
God, I love that color.
What are you
putting on?
Oh, it's just like...
I don't even know
what it's called.
It's just, like,
this new lipstick.
Do you have anything?
I have... Yeah.
- I...
- Put it on. Why don't you have it on?
Well, because I have these
stupid freaking braces on.
Oh, my God.
Please give this to me.
- I feel like it's...
- It's going to look good.
It'll look silly.
No. Just like...
Yeah, like,
press them together.
There you go.
It looks good.
Don't worry about your braces.
It looks super cute.
I like it.
For you I was the flame
Love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came
Love is a losing game
One I wished
I never played
Oh, what a mess we made
And now the final frame
What are you doing?
Where are you going, Tyler?
I need to go
to the store.
You're grounded.
You're not going anywhere.
I'm 18 years old.
You can't ground me.
Why do you smell
like alcohol?
Turn around and answer me.
Have you been drinking?
Where is your sling?
Did you just take the keys
from your dad's office?
- Give them to me.
- No.
Tyler. Give me the keys.
I need to go.
You're not going anywhere.
Give me the keys.
- Bullshit. Watch me.
- Watch your mouth!
Hey, what's going on?
Tyler took the keys
from your office
- and he's been drinking.
- This is bullshit.
Don't talk to your
mother like that.
She's not my mom. All right,
you're not my fucking mom.
My real mom is dead!
All right?
She doesn't talk to me
like a fucking condescending
bitch like you, bitch.
- Shut up right now.
- I am your mom.
No, you're not
my fucking mom. All right?
- Tyler!
- I am.
- You're pathetic, Catherine!
- Tyler, ease back.
- You're pathetic!
- I am...
- You don't really love me!
- Tyler, you need to...
- I am your mother.
- You're not my real mom!
- You can't even have kids.
- I am your mother, Tyler.
You can't even
fucking have kids!
You say one more thing
like that to her,
I'm gonna come over there
and lay your ass out...
Fuck you! Fuck you!
Yeah, fuck you.
I fucking hate you, man.
I fucking hate you.
I can't stand you, man.
Is that the case?
You hate me, huh?
Come at me, brah.
Just fucking come at me.

Yeah, I'm fucking drunk!
What you gonna fucking

Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!
Stop it!
Get the fuck off me,
Are you okay, babe?

Hello? Hi, Ryan?
This is Tyler's mom.
Yes, I'm so sorry
to bother you tonight,
but we are... We're having
an emergency over here.
We're looking for Tyler.
Have you heard from him?
- Tyler. Yo, Tyler.
- Your mom just called me.
She's talking about, like,
a family emergency
or something.
Everything's cool, man.
You want a beer?
Yeah, sure. But, yo,
are you... Are you good?
I'm good, man.
I'll be right there.
All right, dude.
I just texted you
the address.
It's like five miles
north of here. Yes.
- Can you hear me?
- Yeah.
Yeah, I'm gonna go
get him right now.
- Okay, hurry! Please, hurry.
- Yeah.
On my way right now.
See things do come around
But some things trouble me
The people I've met
and the places I've been
Are all what make me the man
I so proudly am
But I wanna know one thing
When did I become a ghost?
I'm most confused about
the world I lived in
You think that I'm lonely
Well, I probably am
One thing that still gets me
When did I become a ghost?
Should you be
drinking right now?
What are you doing here?
You told your parents
without talking to me first?
You blocked me?
I'm trying to talk to you,
but you block me?
- I mean, did you fuck him?
- What?
- Did you fuck him?
- Who?
I saw you go upstairs.
I fucking saw you go upstairs.
Did you fuck him?
With who? With who? Franky?
Who do you think
I'm talking about? Yes!
What the... Franky's one of my
best friends
since elementary school.
- He's fucking gay, you idiot.
- Oh, stop lying, Alexis.
I'm not lying.
You would know that
if you'd listen to
anything that I say!
It's bullshit! It's bullshit!
It's not bullshit.
- It's bullshit like...
- And you would know that
if you listened
to anything I ever say.
And the drinks aren't for me.
They're for my friends.
The ones upstairs that
you never took the chance
to get to know!
- Stop fucking lying, Alexis.
- You don't care about anyone,
- but your fucking self!
- Stop fucking lying.
That's why I can't
talk to you!
I care about nobody but my fucking self, right now?
Don't fucking
walk away from me!
- Fuck you! Move!
- Listen. Listen.
Look, we can keep it, Alexis.
Alexis, Lex.
Look at... Look at me.
Look at me. Look at me.
We can fucking keep it.
We can keep it. We don't have
to get a fucking abortion.
Fuck you! You think I'm gonna
raise my baby with you?
Look at you!
What you mean, "Look at me"?
I'm here for you, bitch!
I'm fucking here for...
- Stop calling me a bitch!
- You fucking him...
- Go fuck yourself!
- You stupid ass bitch!
Stupid ass bitch!
Fucking walk away from me.

abortion clinic
and you're getting rid
of that shit!
Fuck you!
I'm sorry, Alexis.
I'm sorry, Alexis.
I'm sorry, Alexis.
Come on. Wake up.
Wake up. Come on.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
What did I do?
I'm sorry. Come on.
What happened?
Who is that?
- It's Alexis.
- Call the cops!
- Oh, my God.
- No freaking way.
Oh, my God!
- Whoa...
- Is she dead?
I don't know the address.
- She's lying there...
- Did somebody...
- Did somebody call 911?
- ...and she's bleeding.
There's blood near her head.
Who is it?
Are you okay?
- Are you okay?
- Uh-huh.
Okay. You seen your brother?
Has Tyler been here?
Hey, Em.
Has Tyler been here?
What's going on with you?
Talk to me!
What is going on, Tyler?
Open the fucking door, Tyler!
Open the fucking door!
You're scaring me!
What did you do?
Open the door!
Open the door!
Where are you going?
Where are you going?
Stop walking when
I'm talking to you!
Tyler, stop!
Young female,
blunt force trauma to head.
Freeze! Right now!
Get on your knees!
Put your hands
behind your back, now!
Huh? Was that his girlfriend?
Was that his girlfriend
in the ambulance?
It was? Yeah?
But you don't know
what happened?
Was he here?
Was he here?
This is State of
Florida vs. Tyler Williams.
Mister Williams,
will you please stand?
Tyler Williams, for your
conviction of the crime of
murder in the second degree,
upon your plea of guilty,
it is the order of this
court that you be sentenced
to the State Correctional
Institution of Miami
for the rest
of your natural life.
Consistent with
the requirements
of the Florida Constitution,
this sentence is
technically with mercy,
which makes you
eligible for parole
after you have served
30 years.
This is your last
shot of this. All right?
Sign up for the tournament,
get those credits in.
Don't embarrass your parents.
You're not gonna go home
and forget everything
I taught you?
I'm going to miss you all.
It's been a great year.
Hey. Sorry.
Hey. Hello?
Hi. Sorry, I...
I don't mean to bother you.
Did I, um... Did I bump
into you the other day?
Did I bump into you earlier?
Uh, yeah, outside
Mr. Stanley's fifth period?
Oh, yeah, it's fine.
It's cool.
I'm so sorry about that.
Uh... Sorry to have
bothered you too.
Um, are you here
to judge or...
- The lip sync final?
- Yeah.
Nice. Yeah, I'm just doing
the improv final.
I just put it off, uh,
all semester,
so now here I am.
What... Do you have a lot
left today or is it just this?
- Just the lip sync final.
- Nice. Yes, nice. Nice, nice.
Same for me. I'm just...
Got this one left
and then I'm done.
Total shot in the dark. Uh...
Would you maybe want to, like,
grake something to
eat with me later?
"Grake something"?
What did you just say?
Would you maybe want to
grab something
to eat with me later?
Um... Sure.
Awesome. Uh...
- Where?
- I don't know.
Where do you want to eat?
There's a diner down the
street that we could go to.
- Cool.
- Awesome.
- Well, I'm Luke, by the way.
- Emily.
- What's your name? Emily?
- Emily.
When do you get out?
I don't... I'm not completely sure yet.
I don't know.
- Okay.
- But before 3:00, I guess.
Okay, well, I'll, uh...
Then when I get out,
I'll just come wait outside
here and we can go.
Yeah. Do you want
one of these?
I don't know what flavor it is.
Blue raspberry.
There you go. All right,
I'll see you later.
I'm not gonna lie.
I actually didn't think
you were going to show up.
- Really?
- No.
Um... I don't know.
I've just never...
I've never asked somebody
to hang out like that before.
Someone like you.
Like me? I don't...
What does that mean?
No, it doesn't mean...
You're just really beautiful.
And, uh...
I don't know. I don't know.
That's all.
What a difference
a day made
- I love this song.
- Yeah? I don't know it.
I mean,
I'm sure I've heard it,
but I don't know what it is.
My grandparents used to
play this stuff all the time.
- Really?
- Mmm-hmm.
My grandpa used to
stay up all night
and listen to records,
sometimes dance
with my grandma.
Well, that...
That's cool.
Yeah. Yeah.
They're gone now, though.
Oh, I'm sorry.
- No, it's okay.
- That sucks.
I still see my other
grandma all the time.
Do you talk
to your grandparents?
- Um, yeah, on my mom's side.
- Oh, not on your dad's side?
No, I don't know anybody
on my dad's side really.
Do you want to, um...
Do you want to split a burger?
I'm eating burgers at
breakfast, lunch and dinner
since the season ended.
Right. You're in wrestling?
Yes, I am.
How did you know that?
Well, I may have
Insta-stalked you
- after the lip sync final.
- Really? Oh, nice!
And maybe Twitter.
I'm not...
I'm actually...
I actually am not gonna lie,
I did the same thing to you,
but I couldn't find anything.
- Yeah, I deleted everything.
- Why?
I don't know.
Why do you think?
I don't know.
That's why I asked.
Um... You know
- who my brother is, right?
- Yes.
Well, people would just, uh...
Just send me really horrible
messages all the time.
Oh, fuck.
Terrible, so...
I'm sorry.
You know,
people can be such assholes.
Fuck 'em.
Fuck 'em.
Fuck 'em.
- Fuck 'em good.
- Fuck 'em good.
- Hello?
- Hey!
- Hi.
- Where are you?
- Um, I'm in my bedroom.
- Oh, nice.
Where are you?
I'm in the, um...
My living room.
- Nice.
- Sitting on the sofa.
- Comfy sofa?
- Scrumfy.
So I have
a few questions for you.
Oh, wow.
Okay, I'm nervous now.
I thought
I'd get to know you better.
You know, I wrote a...
I typed up some questions
I thought I wanted to ask you.
Um, are you excited
for college?
Um... Whoa. I mean...
Fuck! Holy shit!
Do you see that?
That's a manatee.
I fucking love manatees.
They're like if a cow
and an elephant
had a baby in
the water.
You know what they're
more like is, uh,
like, they move so slow
like a sloth.
- Yeah, kind of. Yeah.
- You know?
We should go see them.
We should go, like,
up north
and swim with them.
Have you ever been?
- Do you know the springs?
- Um, no.
We should go. Do you want...
Would you be down to go?
Yeah, but how
would we do that?
We'd just take my car.
It's summer.
We can just take my car.
When I was little,
I wanted to be a vet.
That was one of the
things I wanted to be,
which I still
really care about.
Would you then want to,
like, work at a zoo or something?
Well, if...
Yeah. I mean...
I like emergency, um,
vet clinics.
- Like that always...
- Right.
...excited me just because
I felt like if I can help
this animal in its...
In its moment of
intense need...
- Do you sing?
- No. I mean, I do sing
but I'm not a good singer
for sure.
It hurts my heart.
- That you can't sing?
- No, totally.
Everybody can sing
in the shower though.
Not me.
I sing Vampire Weekend
in the shower,
shit don't sound right.
How great is our God
Sing with me
How great is our God
And all will see
How great...
Is our God
Yeah. I was raised...
I was raised Christian, so...
Oh, yeah?
My dad's dad is a minister.
Okay. Um, that's cool.
I'm sorry, I don't mean...
I hope I didn't offend you
by making this...
Why would you offend me?
I don't know.
I really shouldn't have.
No, it's fine. I... I think
it's weird when people are
judgmental or think people
are evil because they're not...
- Exactly.
- ...Christian or Catholic,
- or whatever they may be.
- Completely.
I completely agree.
Here, check the...
Wait for this part.
This shit's fire.
This is fire.
Give it a second.
The first is
that God is better
than the world's best thing.
God is better than...
Magnify, magnify
Lift it on high
Spit it Spotify to qualify
a spot on His side
I cannot modify or ratify
My momma made me apple pies
Lullabies and alibis
The book don't end
with Malachi
Devil will win employee

All right.
- You got it.
- Come on, you got it.
- You got it! Go on.
- Yeah, you got it.
- Go! You got it. Come on.
- Don't drop...
Just don't drop straight down.
Come on!
- But I'm jumping down!
- Jump that way.
- Go, like, forward.
- Like, jump out?
like a little forward.
- Yeah, you got it.
- Take a leap. Come on.
- Take a leap of faith.
- Yeah, there you go.
Jump. Jump. Jump!
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Jump! Jump! Jump!
So when can you?
When can you do it?
You really want
to start this fight right now?
With everything?
We both know that
this started before, okay?
- It's just gotten worse.
- Unbelievable.
What's unbelievable?
Will you say something to me?
Tell me. What is it? What?
What's unbelievable?
Catherine, please.
I'm right here.
I'm all ears. What is it?
I'm sorry I don't
want to fuck you right now.
We are in crisis here.
It's so much.
There's so much to push through.
We shouldn't have to
think about that.
It's not just about
the sex, Catherine.
You're not here.
Like, you're not here.
You're not.
It's not a family anymore.
We still have other things
to think about. All right?
- We still have a daughter.
- We still have a daughter?
Where are you?
- What do...
- What have you done for her?
- What's that supposed to mean?
- What are you doing for her?
- What are you talking about?
- You have...
You're not there for her.
You were never there for her.
- Even before.
- What? No.
You show up,
you play Mr. Nice Guy, and
you leave all the work for me.
Is that what
you want me to do?
What in the hell
are you talking about?
You want me to go take care
of her again for you?
What are you talking about?
You pushed him!
You pushed him!
You pushed him!
That's not...
You were not there for her.
It was different with Tyler,
and you know that.
- You know that I raised...
- You don't listen.
...these kids
the best way that I know.
You're not listening to me.
You don't listen to anyone!
Well, at least I'm here,
I'm the one that's trying to
hold this family together.
Where are you?
There's a little black boy
going out into this world...
I'm grieving!
I'm just asking you, can I
grieve in my way, please?
Yeah. That's not fair.
I've done nothing
but be here for you.
That's all I've done.
I'm just trying to be a good...
I can't be around you. God.
Oh, God, you make me sick.
Wait... I make you sick?
What did I do
to make you sick?
Like, honestly,
I just want to be here for you, with you.
We're going through
this together.
We're going through
this together.
I can't.
I can't.
I can't look at you
and not think of him.
I'm sorry.
You'll love my mom.
She's the fucking greatest.
She drives me crazy,
but she's the best.
What about your dad?
- My dad?
- Mmm-hmm.
He's not the best dude.
Do you want to talk about it?
Um, sure, yeah. Uh...
Well, when I was a kid,
he was just drunk
and on drugs a lot and, um...
Just did some pretty terrible
stuff to me and my mom.
I mean, especially my mom.
And I couldn't do
anything about it,
because I was just a kid.
But, yeah, eventually
my mom cut us off.
And you haven't
talked to him at all since?
No. No,
he actually has cancer.
- Really?
- Yeah, he has cancer.
- I'm sorry.
- No, it's all right.
He's a piece of shit.
He deserves it.
So... He's not in my life.
I don't know him.
I really wish I could
talk to my mom.
- You don't talk to her?
- No, she's dead.
Really? Oh, my God.
I'm so sorry.
No, it's fine.
It's okay. Um...
My stepmom is really my mom.
I mean, she's the one
who raised us, so...
Yeah, I haven't seen
my biological mom
since I was, like,
a little girl.
Oh, no. Um...
How'd she die?
She overdosed.
- Really?
- Mmm-hmm.
- I'm so sorry.
- It's fine.
I'm sorry too.
What are you going to do?
What are you going to do?
Do you know this song?
Is it Blood Orange?
I don't... No, I don't.
Who is it?
Animal Collective.
But you claw me like a cat
I'm beaming
You totally
don't have to do that.
Wait, what is it?
It's X. But seriously,
there's no pressure at all.
Whatever you want to do,
I'm up for it.
- What do you think?
- Um... Like, want to do it?
- Yeah. Yeah, of course.
- Really? Okay, cool.
I like this.
- Like, your lips are so soft.
- I know.
- So fucking beautiful.
- Yeah.
Whoa! Whoa!
When you're alone
I wanna say
"Let's just stay in"
No one's here
in our apartment, babe
Put on the dress that I like
It makes me so crazy
Though I can't say why
Keep on your stockings
for a while
Some kind of magic in...
- The way you talk about your
- Look, look, look! It's a rainbow.
- Blue eyeshadow
- It'll come back!
Look, look, look!
Look, look, look!
Way too cold!
You are but a phoenix
among feathers
You're broken
by the waves among the sea
They'll let you die
They'll let you wash away
But you swim
as well as you fly
Pretty little bird
Pretty little bird
You've hit the window
a few times
The window a few times
You pretty little bird
Pretty little bird
You got so much
schmutz on your face.
You still ain't scared
of no heights
When the spiral down
feels as good as the flight up
When hating you
feels good for the night
When the morning comes
I hope you're still mine
Oh, yeah!
Okay. I'm sorry.
Hey, baby. I think...
I'm sorry.
I think... I'm sorry.
It's okay.
It's okay. It's okay.
Okay, fuck. I'm gonna cum.
Fuck. Okay. Sorry.
- Did... Did you cum?
- Yeah.
- Okay.
- I'm so sorry.
No, it's okay.
It's okay. It's okay.
- Jesus Christ.
- No, no, no. Don't get...
No, it's fine. It's fine.
It's really fine.
We can go again
if you want, maybe?
Yeah, of course.
Yeah, it's okay.
You can take your time.
- It's okay. Don't worry.
- Okay.
I don't think you've
been fishing with your daddy
since you was a little girl.
Thanks for coming.
I, uh...
I just wanted to apologize.
I feel like we haven't
spoken in some time
and I'm responsible for that.
I don't even really know
what's going on with you.
How you doing with everything?
I'm good.
You know it's okay
if you're not.
You can tell me anything.
You know that, right?
Yeah, I know.
I worry about you.
you don't need to worry about me.
- Okay? I'm fine.
- All right. All right.
How are you doing
with everything?
It's been hard.
Hasn't it?
Don't know how to connect
with your mother anymore.
- What do you mean?
- She won't look at me.
She won't talk to me.
I think she hates me.
I really do.
- Dad, she doesn't hate you.
- No, she might.
She's just shutting down,
you know?
She won't go to work.
Couldn't even if
she wanted to.
The business will not recover.
We're just losing money.
I just love her so much
but I'm losing her,
and I don't know what to do.
I'm sorry.
Dad, don't apologize.
- I shouldn't be telling you all this.
- Dad, don't apologize.
No, it's okay.
It's just...
I don't have anyone else
to talk to.
I know. It's okay. Dad.
- Dad.
- Yeah?
Look, I'm really happy
you're telling me this stuff.
- I promise, okay?
- Okay.
Thank you.
Thank you.
You know,
I could've stopped it.
Stopped what?
What do you mean?
I was there that night and...
I saw him following her.
And I...
I had that sick feeling
in my stomach.
I don't know what happened.
I kind of just froze.
It's just so crazy,
'cause if I just
would've gotten up...
- You know?
- No. No.
If I just would've
gotten up, then...
I would've went up to him
and stopped him,
- and she would still be here.
- Wait. Listen to me.
- This is not your fault.
- So I just... Yeah, it is.
- No, it's not.
- It is.
- Because I was there.
- No, and you can't blame yourself for it.
- I could've done something...
- You understand me?
- ...and I just didn't.
- You didn't do this.
Your brother did it.
It's not...
I chose not to do anything.
Sweetheart, you didn't do it.
This is not...
And I don't know
why I did that.
This is not your fault.
It is.
It's not your fault.
Emily, hey.
And I hate him so much.
- I hate him so much!
- I know.
What he did is evil, Dad!
He's evil.
- He's a... He's a monster!
- I understand that...
He's a monster for
doing that to her! I don't...
I understand
that you're angry.
- How does somebody do that?
- You have every right to be.
Do you hear me?
But your brother?
He's not a monster.
He's not evil.
He's just a human being.
I know the pain that
you're feeling right now.
Believe me, I know it.
I think about your brother
every day
and the things that
I could've done differently.
But we can't change it,
you know?
All we have is now.
All we have is now.
And I'm telling you this
because I love you.
Holding on to that much
hate will destroy a person,
and I'm not about to let
that happen to you.
You have so much love
to share with the world.
And so much life yet to live.
Hey, you remember
Papa's favorite scriptures?
It said,
"Hatred stirs up strife,
"but love,
love covers all offenses."
And I love you so much,
baby girl. Come here.
It's okay.
- I love you too.
- I know you do. I know.
What are you thinking about?
Uh, the hospital where
my dad's at called today.
Really? What did they say?
They don't think
he has much longer.
Oh, um...
Do they know how long?
I don't know.
Like, not long at all.
They said he doesn't
have more than a week.
Um, what are you going to do?
What do you mean?
- Well, you have to see him.
- Why?
Because he's your dad.
Okay, I don't want to see him.
And besides,
my car's in the shop
and he's in Missouri.
Well, we can take my car.
You have to see your dad.
You will seriously regret it
if you don't.
Okay, it says it's gonna
take two days to get there,
but we can leave tomorrow.
We could...
We could stop and we could
break it up along the way.
Do you think you could make up
an excuse for your mom?
- Are you serious?
- Yes.
- Can you make up an excuse?
- Yeah, yeah.
I guess I could
make up an excuse.
Do you think... Could you?
I think we should do it.
This is not my life
It's just a fond
farewell to a friend
It's just a fond
farewell to a friend
This is not my life
It's just a fond
farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell
Yeah! Whoo!
Speaking of Nirvana
It was there
Rare as the feathers
on my dash
From a phoenix
There with my crooked teeth
and companions sleeping, yeah
Dreaming a thought that could
Dream about a thought
That could think of
the dreamer that thought
That could think of dreaming
and getting a glimmer of God
I be dreaming a dream
in a thought
That could dream
about a thought
That could think
of dreaming a dream
Where I cannot
Where I cannot
Hey, I think this is it.
This is the slowest
fucking elevator.
Hey, Dad. Hi.
I missed you.
This is my girlfriend, Emily.
It's nice to meet you.
Thank you.
Well, he's fighting.
Everyone is different.
Sometimes it's rapid,
sometimes it takes time.
He might be holding on more
because you're here now.
However, this is taking
longer than usual
and longer than
we had anticipated.
he's not ready to go yet.
And the best thing
that you can do
is to help him feel peace
and comfort when he's lucid.
So if there's anything
that you need,
please let us know.
And I'll be back tomorrow
to check in.
Thank you very much,
Thank you very much,
Doctor. I appreciate it.
Baby, baby, wake up.
- Wake up.
- What's up?
It's your dad. Your dad.
Baby, your dad.
Hey. Do you have to
go to the bathroom?
What are you
holding onto, Dad?
What's going on?
What are you feeling?
Talk to me.
Or not.
You know, um...
You don't need
to fight anymore.
I just want you
to be at peace.
You know you're going
to someplace better.
- Right?
- I know.
Yeah. You know.
You don't have any regrets?
Kind of.
Yeah? Well,
you don't have to.
You don't need to.
You're okay.
Yeah, Dad.
Just let it out.
Okay, folks.
15 minutes.
God wants us...
- Amen.
- Amen.
It doesn't matter
what happened.
What I'm talking about...
I love you.
I love you too.
I love you so much.
