9-1-1: Lone Star (2020) s03e13 Episode Script

Riddle of the Sphynx

1 Can you tell us what happened? Not another car on the road and this gal comes swerving into my lane.
My truck jackknifed and now I've got 15,000 pounds of hay to pick up.
Alright, Judd, why don't you close down those two lanes? Marjan, get the jaws.
Paul, Mateo, inch and a half of protective line.
The scene is extremely combustible.
One spark, this hay goes up like tinder.
Hi, ma'am.
My name is Owen.
This is Tommy and TK.
They're gonna take care of you.
- Are you in any pain? - Numb mostly.
Can you tell us what happened? Something darted in front of my car.
I think it was a deer.
- Did I hit it? - Don't see any deer.
- Good.
- Hey, can you tell me your name? Carrie.
I think my legs are pinned.
They're tingling, like they went to sleep.
I'm gonna check your neck right quick.
Just be very, very still for me, okay? Definitely feeling some crepitus.
Be careful with the collar.
- Craptus? What's craptus? - Crepitus.
Means there's some free-floating vertebrae.
It indicates that your neck might be broken.
- Oh, God.
- It's alright.
Carrie, can you tell me if you can feel me touching your leg? Yes, but it's fuzzy.
Is that bad? No, no, no, that's good.
It means that there's some swelling, but your spine is intact.
Alright, just need you to hold very, very still, so try not to Ow.
Carrie, do you have any allergies? Hay fever.
That's unfortunate.
Bone shards are shifting with every sneeze.
We need to get her out of here fast before one of those slices her spinal cord.
Marjan? Jaws are flying in, Cap.
- Push 50 mils of Diphen.
- Copy.
Carrie, we're gonna give you an antihistamine, but it's very important that you do everything that you can not to sneeze.
How am I supposed to do that? - Right.
Say, "Purple elephant.
" - What? My grandma used to make me say that.
It's impossible to sneeze while you're saying that.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
One, two, three.
Alright, Judd, let's get a KED in there.
Strap her in.
- Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
- Okay.
- Purple elephant.
- Easy.
Carrie, we're gonna lift you out now.
Alright, everybody, no jolts.
Smooth as glass.
On my count.
One, two Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
- Purple elephant.
- three.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
- Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
- Easy.
- Purple elephant.
- Easy.
Purple elephant.
Purple elephant.
- Well done.
- Purple elephant.
Hey, Judd, I'm gonna call Street Services, get all this cleaned up.
Hey, anybody lose a shoe? No, man, nobody lost a shoe.
How about a foot? Whoa.
So not a deer.
We have another victim! Let's check the road.
Both shoulders.
Cap, there's a clip on this.
I think it's a cycling shoe.
Alright, he's a cyclist.
What do I do with this, Cap? Uh, should I just hold it, or-or something? Put it in a box, get it on cold packs.
Hey, Cap, we got the bike.
So if the foot is there and the bike is over there then Cap? Looking for a cyclist in a haystack.
Everybody, grab the rubbish hooks.
Start digging.
Fire Department! Call out if you can hear us! Hello? Fire Department! Hello? Hey.
Hey, Judd.
I got blood here, man.
- It's going this way.
- Yeah.
Oh! - Hey, here he is.
- Sir, can you hear us? - Ooh! - I got a pulse.
Marjan, let me get that tourniquet.
Here you go.
How's he lookin'? His pulse is dropping.
Sir, sir, you know where you are? Yeah.
Where were we, Judd? Let's get Street Services Oh, no! They forgot the foot.
Sorry I'm late.
No worries.
How was the meeting? A lot like last night and the six before that.
You have any idea how proud of you I am? For going to a meeting? For going to a few more than that.
Ninety meetings in ninety days is no joke, TK.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
I love going to them.
I just don't love why I have to.
I know.
Me too, babe.
Sadie stole a year of sobriety from me.
All the other times I relapsed was because of a choice that I made.
This time, I didn't have the option.
It was made for me.
I was reading this article online and it said that it's best not to dwell on the people connected to the relapse, no matter the circumstances.
That's funny.
Cooper said the same thing tonight.
- Cooper? - Mm-hmm.
His name's been popping up a lot lately.
Yeah, he's been coming to a few of my meetings just to support me.
You know, I'm down to join you if if you want.
Just say the word.
I appreciate it.
We have a few minutes if you wanna change before I start heating up dinner.
That looks really good but, uh, I already ate.
TK, you can't live on AA donuts alone.
No, I actually had an omelet and hash browns.
I went out to eat with Cooper after the meeting to talk.
There's that name again.
I, uh, I asked him to be my sponsor tonight.
I didn't know you were in the market.
Yeah, well, I've kinda been putting off getting a local sponsor since I moved from New York.
But now that this happened, it seemed like the right time.
So what's he like, Cooper? He's been sober since he could legally walk into a bar.
But after all this time, he's still laser-focused on the program.
That's great.
That's really great.
You know, he made a really good point tonight.
Oh, yeah? What's that? I've had so much anxiety about going back to day one more than I ever have before, and he said it's because it's my first time going through without my mom.
Can't imagine how hard that must be for you.
What? You're just so sweet.
Reading articles with your adorable glasses, waiting for me to eat dinner.
Just know that I'm always here for you.
I know I'm not in the program, but if there's ever anything you need to get off your chest I mean, there is something that I wanna get off your chest.
Please don't say my shirt.
It's your shirt.
For a girl who loved to travel, Jen could get lost anywhere.
I mean, it was her superpower.
Is it just me or is he super sexy tonight? Blanca, cállate.
I remember when I proposed.
We were in Venice.
I had this church all set up.
Three-string band, a harp, violin, a gondola waiting outside, the whole nine.
All Jen has to do is to get from the hotel to the church.
I kid you not, it's 500 feet from point A to point B.
This is before we knew why it was really getting harder.
Before we knew about the tumor.
Anyway, there I am, staring at the door on one knee.
Forty minutes I'm on that knee.
Finally, the door opens, my heart leaps, the violins start to play, and I propose to Mr.
and Mrs.
Bloomfield from Wisconsin.
No! Funny too.
I found Jen later standing by a fountain, a little confused.
Turned out that was the perfect spot.
I miss her every day.
- Blanca? - Hmm? Don't you think you're overdoing it a little bit? My husband is in a jar next to my bed.
Who am I watching my figure for? I am less worried about your figure than hypoglycemic shock.
Ay, aguafiestas.
What were you two troublemakers giggling about tonight? Well, uh, your share.
It was very funny and very sweet.
Jen sounded like a wonderful person.
She was the best.
Also, she thinks you're sexy.
Oh, I do not.
I Um Hmm.
I mean, I don't not think that.
Well, if it makes you feel any better, I don't not feel the same way.
You two be good.
Imposible! - What the hell was that? - Ay, que? I put you on the five-yard line.
You can't ask the man out? This is a grief group, not a singles bar.
You know he's not married.
You're into him, and he's clearly into you.
Morris and I are friends.
Just strictly platonic, that's it.
Hey, Tommy.
One more thing - I'd love to.
- Oh, great.
- Dinner it is.
- It sounds lovely.
- I'll see you then.
- Yeah.
Oh, yeah.
You're definitely gonna tap that.
Oh, my God.
You're outta your mind.
How can you possibly think Twenty One Pilots is better than Macklemore? Yes, I've heard "Ride," that's my point.
Oh, my God.
Go back and listen to "Can't Hold Us" and then call me in the morning.
Hey, Coop, um I really appreciate you taking the call.
When you said 24/7, you weren't kidding.
I just I just really needed to talk.
What? I was just thinking how nice it is.
To have a few moments without being interrupted by a kidnapper.
Or a homicidal stalker.
- Or a homicidal cop.
- Hmm.
You know what? I've cleared my schedule today.
There are gonna be a lot of moments like this.
I like the sound of that.
- Really? - Ugh.
Hello? You're kidding me.
How many of them? Okay, I'm on it.
What's going on? Some of the state senators announced they are going to walk out to prevent a quorum approving the governor's new budget.
Well, at least they're not homicidal state senators.
No, not homicidal, though I might be.
I'm sorry, Owen, I have to go.
How long will you be gone? It could be a couple of hours.
Could be a couple of days.
Depends on what concessions Oh, God.
Horatio? It's my turn to have custody.
I was supposed to pick him up from my ex's this afternoon.
Didn't know you had a son or that you named him after a seafarer.
Horatio isn't my son.
He is my cat.
Your cat? You share custody of a cat? Patrick and I got him when we were still married.
And I didn't wanna traumatize him when we split up.
Oh, shoot.
I think Patrick has a business trip tomorrow too.
Why don't I just take care of him? - You would do that? - I got nothing else to do.
It'd be fun.
Have your ex drop him off here.
Oh, you're You're thinking about my bird.
I am not thinking about your bird.
Yes, you're thinking 'cause Ginsberg dropped dead here that maybe something would happen to Horatio.
I promise you, I will not harm a fur on his furry little head.
I know you won't, because Horatio is hairless.
- He's hairless? - He's a sphynx.
But I am not worried about you and Horatio.
I am worried about you and Patrick.
I won't harm him either.
You think we won't get along? Oh, no.
I think you'll get along great.
Maybe too great.
I'm not sure I follow.
Let's just say there are some uncanny similarities between you two.
And I don't want you to think I'm not over him or something.
- Are you over him? - Absolutely.
Like you're gonna make fun of me because I definitely have a type.
You are so sweet to watch Horatio.
You sure it won't be weird having my ex at your house? No.
I'm looking forward to meeting them both.
Okay, sir, don't pour water on it.
That'll just make it spread.
How do I put it out? The flames are getting bigger.
Don't panic.
I need you to turn off the burner and then grab the biggest pot lid you have, okay? But nothing glass.
It's gotta be metal.
I got it.
I got it.
Now, very carefully, I want you to place the lid on the pan.
That should smother the fire.
Okay, it's working.
Yeah, it worked.
Fire's out.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.
I'm sorry about your eggs, sir.
What's up, T? Oh, Gracie, thank God.
You know, I hate to bug you when you're on shift, but I-I have a little bit of a situation here.
Is everything okay? What's going on? Um I have a date.
You got a date? Uh.
like a date-date? Yeah.
And-and I just really need a friend right now.
Okay, listen, if you're asking me to babysit, then the answer is absolutely yes.
I will get Judd on Charlie duty, and I'm available any day this week.
Oh, that-that's amazing.
Thank you.
Thank you so much.
And I will take you up on that.
But what I need right now, more than a babysitter, is a fashion consultant.
'Cause Girl, I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to wear.
Don't say any more.
Okay? I got you.
Help is on the way.
I know I've hit you with a lot of information, but I need some sense that we're on the same page.
We eat treats, we do not eat cats.
I'm not gonna lose a burgeoning relationship because you succumbed your baser instincts.
Oh, you can whine all you want.
Hey, boy, at least you don't have to move out for the next few days.
Oh, you don't have to move out.
Catherine says Horatio is hairless.
You can still be allergic to a hairless cat.
Hairless or not, they still produce dander.
Plus, they look creepy as hell and I don't need the nightmares.
Oh, that's him.
Hey, uh, listen, can you stick around for a minute? I just want you to have a look at this guy.
Catherine's ex? Why? She says that we are uncannily similar, whatever that means, so just would like to have an extra set of eyes.
You mean you want me to tell you how much more handsomer you are.
And every other way that I'm better.
Oh, I'm sorry.
Can I help you? I sure hope so.
You're Owen, right? - Yes.
And you are? - Patrick.
Catherine said you're gonna be taking care of our little monster here today.
This is Horatio.
Hey, I'm Mateo.
Told ya.
Wha You're Patrick? All my life.
Now, he has special pH water for his urinary tract.
Never use tap.
And there's some fish oil which he likes on his dinner.
Not to be confused with the coconut oil which he likes on his skin.
I take it this is your first time with a sphynx? And already I know I'm never gonna forget it.
Now they get cold easy so lay out a few blankets for him to snuggle into, and crank up the heat, it's chilly in here.
It's 70 degrees.
Yeah, well, you're not hairless.
I'm fairly hairless.
I'm I'm so sorry.
Oh, this? No, it's fine.
I'm not self-conscious.
It started to go when I was in high school.
Catherine always says it's from an excess of testosterone.
Does she now? Okay, Horatio, you be a good boy.
Thanks for doing this.
I know this is all a lot to take in.
And yet I know that it's all I'll be thinking about for the next two days.
That was horrifying.
Wow, you look nice.
Wait, did we have plans tonight? No, I'm I'm going to a meeting.
I thought you already went to your meeting today.
I did.
I just kinda feel like I need to go to another one.
Something wrong? No, just restless, I guess.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I-I didn't know.
No, no.
I didn't wanna bug you.
You were doing your thing.
You're not bugging me.
You know I'm a pretty good listener.
I know, but when you're in yoga clothes, I'm not a very good talker.
Come on.
I'm serious.
I want to help.
What's making you restless? Sometimes I don't know until I'm in the front of that room and then the truth just comes out.
So I called Cooper and he said there's a meeting at the Y.
- Oh.
Of course.
- Yeah.
I just think that's a very nice sweater for the Y.
Oh, that's him.
Cooper? He's here.
He thought it'd be a good idea if we rode together.
Would you mind getting that? I'm gonna get my jacket.
- Hey.
- Hi.
I'm Cooper.
You're Cooper? Yes.
Yeah, I'm Cooper.
I'm guessing you must be Carlos.
I am.
Please come in.
Carlos, I've heard so much about you.
I feel like I already know you.
Well, I hope I made a good impression.
You kidding? TK raves about you.
Then we have something in common.
Um, if you guys have a second, I'd love to make you a cup of coffee or tea.
- Our meeting's at 5:00, babe.
- Of course.
Thank you for dropping everything last minute.
Don't sweat it.
What are sponsors for? Besides dealing with your basket case sponsees? Come on, man.
We've talked about that negative self-talk.
You're right.
I would say I'm the worst ; But we're working on that.
Carlos, promise me that you won't let him off the hook if he does that when I'm not around.
Don't worry.
I'll let him hear it.
- Awesome.
It was nice meeting you.
- Yeah.
You guys have fun.
But not too much fun.
Hey, Judd.
Thanks for coming by, man.
Especially on baby duty.
Oh, no problem at all.
Charlie loves her car rides.
Man, it's hot as August in Galveston in here, Cap.
What-what, you doin' a sweat cleanse or something? Horatio likes it warm.
Horatio? Behind you.
I'm cat-sitting for Catherine.
Poor little guy.
He's-he's sick, huh? No, no.
He's supposed to look like that.
- He's a sphynx.
- Uh So Catherine shares custody of Horatio with her ex, Patrick.
And she told me that I'm a dead ringer for him, so he came over to drop the cat off.
And in your opinion, he ain't a spitting image of you.
If I drank from the wrong grail, maybe.
Oh, so he's an older gentleman? Well, not old-old.
And then Catherine's, like, is quite a bit younger than you, right? I wouldn't say quite a bit.
More like a bit.
But what does that have to do with the fact that she's told me that she has a type? Okay, so she has a type.
Those-those are the words she used? Yes.
She-she said "type.
" Why? What does How does that matter? Yeah, I think I know what's going on here.
I think you're gettin' all churned up over nothin', Cap.
Really? Well-well, thank you.
But what is going on? Well, like my Uncle Cash always says, uh, some women just prefer the day-olds.
The day-olds? What's that? Yeah, some women prefer the company of an older gentleman because they are worldly and they are wise.
And maybe, uh Maybe Catherine has got a little daddy thing going.
A daddy thing? I feel so dirty.
Is it hot? I'm It's hot.
I'm sweating.
It's hot in here, right? Yeah, it's like a sauna here, but, Cap, Cap It ain't dirty.
Right? - You're two consenting adults.
- Right.
Are you guys You guys are having a good time together? - The best.
- She make you happy? I haven't been this happy in-in - Well, I don't know how long.
- Okay, so don't overthink it.
Gal like Catherine don't come around but once in a blue moon.
You're right? You know what? You're absolutely right.
Thank you.
Thank you, Judd.
I really just needed to hear your elegant hillbilly wisdom.
Well, don't thank me, thank my Uncle Cash.
What is it? Oh, come here.
Your daddy's got you now.
Come here, sweetie.
Come here, come here, come here.
Come on.
You're okay.
Daddy's here now.
You're okay.
Your daddy's got you.
Tommy, would you come out already? You got me on pins and needles, girl.
Promise to be honest.
Am I ever not? Okay, but don't be nice just to be nice.
Just please be nice.
Tommy, come out.
Well? Feedback.
I'm sorry.
It's hard to talk with my jaw on the floor.
So you like it? I do.
I really, really do.
- Okay, what? - Oh, nothing.
No, no, no.
Not nothing.
You don't "I really do" me unless you're hiding something.
So you have thoughts.
Well, I have a thought.
You are buttoned up a little high there.
Now that, that usually sends a certain message.
Like I'm uptight? Like you want him to call you ma'am.
How's that? See, now you're sending a very different message.
I can't do this.
No, no.
I'm calling Morris.
To say what, Tommy? Evie's Evie's puking her guts out.
That's right.
And I've gotta cancel.
- Mm-mmm.
- Yeah, but You will do no such thing.
I'm not ready, Grace.
You're not ready for what, Tommy, for dinner? Dinner with a bunch of subtext.
Well, there doesn't have to be a bunch of subtext.
Especially if you go up one more button.
I No, it's No.
No! It's too soon.
It's wrong.
Charles and I were supposed to be forever.
What the hell am I doing? Sit down.
Look at me.
You are living your life, Tommy.
And that is what Charles would have wanted.
Listen, somebody else in this world wants to sit down and have a meal with you.
Somebody that you might like to get to know.
It's not betrayal.
It's not a commitment.
It's just dinner.
What if I turn into a puddle before the appetizers even arrive? I got you.
These, friend, are for you.
You came prepared.
- Always.
- Mm-hmm.
I can't stand you.
You deserve to have fun again, T.
What if I don't remember how? Hmm, well, it usually helps to start with a cocktail.
- Or two? - Mm-hmm.
See? There you go.
It's coming back.
Here we go.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- Salud.
- Salud.
How's your Negroni? - Hmm? - Your drink.
- Do you like it? - Oh.
Um It's it's nice.
Yeah, it's, um, it's very nice.
So what are you thinking so hard about right now? I was thinking, that, um my husband used to make them so much better in his restaurant.
He used to use dry vermouth instead of sweet and - Oh, my God.
- What? The bread hasn't even gotten here yet and I've already brought up my deceased spouse.
It's no big deal.
Don't worry about it.
Believe me, this is a process.
We all get a little thrown off when we start back out.
It's part of the deal.
You okay? I think I'm good.
But it is better with dry vermouth.
- Okay.
- You'll-you'll see.
After the next round.
- Is that so? - That is so.
Well in that case, - we gotta get some grub in first.
- Yes.
Any of the appetizers jumping out at you? I'm always a sucker for a Caprese salad.
What else? Oh, they have burrata crostini.
I love crostinis.
You don't like crostinis? No, I I love crostinis.
Morris are you alright? Crostinis were Jen's favorite.
She would order them with pesto instead of tomatoes because tomatoes gave her heartburn.
God, I miss her.
I miss her so much.
Would you like a a tissue? Here, here you go.
Have some tissues.
Thank you.
Oh no, no, no, no.
Hi, baby.
How was the meeting? Oh, you know, the same.
That smells amazing.
It's just chicken.
I'm sorry.
Should I have been cooking for two? I figured by the time it was eight o'clock you and Coop stopped for omelets.
I can still make you something.
- No, it's fine.
- Cool.
Is, uh - Is something wrong? - No.
Really? Because you called Cooper "Coop.
" And I don't even think I have.
No? I thought maybe you did on the phone the other night.
3:00 in the morning.
You're really mad at me for calling my sponsor? No, of course not.
Let's just forget about it.
It's not my place.
Just trying to figure out what my place is.
I-I don't even know what that means.
It means if you needed to talk to somebody at three o'clock in the morning, you could have just rolled over.
- I didn't wanna wake you.
- Why not? Because, Carlos, you weren't the one that I needed to speak with.
You know he's straight, right? - Why does that matter? - It doesn't matter.
I don't think you're cheating with the guy, TK.
Not physically.
Look, I know that confiding to your sponsor isn't cheating.
It just It feels like he's getting pieces of you that I don't.
You don't want those pieces.
I do.
I want all of it.
You have all of me, Carlos.
- Do I? - Yes! Would it make you feel better if the next time I felt the need to use, I'd come to you? - You know you can.
- I know.
And I might, but it wouldn't be enough.
- I'm not enough, you mean.
- No! Because you haven't been there.
And thank God you haven't.
I need people in my life that have.
And if that means that sometimes I'm late getting home just know it's only so I will get home, Carlos.
Tommy - It's not even 9:30.
- Nope.
Well, what happened? I take it the date didn't go well.
There was a pile of tissues on the table before the appetizers even arrived.
Tommy, listen.
I have been worried all night that I pushed you too hard too soon.
And I'm-I'm sorry.
I never said the tissues were mine.
How about that? Wait.
I'm sorry.
Morris was the one that fell apart? - Why do you look so surprised? - Okay.
It was a little disappointing, though.
I was looking forward to the crostini.
Drink? Please.
Tommy, I'm I'm proud of you.
For being so brave.
And I'm sorry tonight was a disaster.
I wouldn't say that.
Not a disaster.
I don't remember the last time I put on perfume or heels.
I had a craft cocktail under the stars tonight.
I have been living with the buttons all the way up to my chin since Charles died.
And tonight, for the first time I felt alive again.
Oh, gosh.
I'm so glad to hear it, Tommy.
I mean, who knows, right? Maybe, maybe someday soonish, I might take this whole little situation down another two buttons.
Miss Tommy Vega is back, is she? Oh.
God, I miss him so much.
I know you do.
Parker, will you please slow down and talk to me? What's the point? The point is, I'm trying to understand why you just broadsided me in a courtroom.
Pretty sure I made that clear to the judge.
Okay, but I don't understand.
Every other weekend at your dad's.
We agreed, that's been working.
No, we didn't agree.
You just decided.
Just like you've done everything else in my life since I was a kid.
Look, Mom, I'm not choosing Dad over you.
But, sweetie, legally, that's exactly what you just did.
Is that why he got you that dirt bike? - Ohh.
- Because I told him.
Damn it.
I know I put that parking ticket in here somewhere.
He didn't buy me off.
Well, what did he do? Because he doesn't help you with pre-calc or drive you to Mandarin lessons or, God forbid, give you a curfew.
He lets me have my own life.
- He trusts me.
- Baby, I trust you.
I'm not a baby.
- I know.
I know.
- Do you? You see me as like this fragile little kid whose hand you need to always hold when all you really need to do is back off.
I didn't know you felt that way.
Mom, listen, I didn't mean that.
Oh, you're right.
It's your life.
It's your decision.
These stupid things.
Look, I'm sorry if I disappointed you, okay? You could never disappoint me.
Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! I tried to pull her out, but the door was jammed.
I couldn't budge it, I couldn't.
I know.
You did everything you could.
Um Let's get you back in the ambulance.
We'll finish the bandage there, yeah? No.
What What Why are they stopping? Why weren't they helping her? What are y'all doing? She's dying, man! - You gotta help her! - Hey, hey.
- Help her! - I'm so sorry, honey.
There wasn't anything we could do to help your mom.
No What-what do you mean? Is she She's gone, baby.
No, no.
Mom! - Hey, hey, hey.
- Mom! Mom.
This is my fault.
- This is all my fault.
- Hey.
No, it's not.
It was an accident.
No, I distracted her.
I was such a jerk.
The last thing I told her was to back off.
And And now I'll never get her back.
She thought I didn't love her, but I do.
I love her so much.
Oh, of course you do, baby.
Of course you do, and she knew that.
She thinks I hate her.
No, she doesn't.
How do you know? Because she's your mom.
Thought you had a meeting.
I blew it off.
- You blew it off? - Mm-hm.
Oh, wow, I don't think I've seen these before.
Yeah, they were still packed up.
Took me a minute to find 'em.
She was so beautiful.
Look at you there.
So adorable.
How old were you? - Six.
- Hmm.
It was the first time she took me to dim sum on Spring Street.
God, we were so happy that day.
I'd give anything to feel like that again.
We had a call today.
This kid was maybe 14 years old.
His mom died right in front of him.
It was horrible.
God, I'm so sorry.
It's all pretty horrible.
- Will you do me a favor? - Sure.
Will you put all these someplace? I don't I don't even know why I dug 'em up.
I think I'm gonna go lay down.
You are such a good boy.
And one thing we know is Catherine certainly likes her wrinkles.
- I'm back.
- Hey.
I got my quorum.
Oh, good.
He's still here.
I was hoping I would get to say goodbye before Patrick picked him up.
Well, the good news for you is he's probably driving in the slow lane.
Oh, my God.
Are you oiling him? Yes.
I read that it's important for sphynxes to be hydrated and I can relate.
Okay, I have to take a picture of this.
This is literally the sexiest I have ever seen you.
The only thing that's missing is a life alert and a walker.
Something funny? Yes, you are.
Owen, what is your deal right now? Uh, my deal is I'm onto you.
I know what you meant when you said you had a type.
That I like a man who takes charge? That you like the day-olds.
Day-olds? What What does that even mean? Please don't be coy with me.
We both know that you have daddy issues.
And I'm daddy.
Where in the world is this coming from? You know, I thought that we had something, not just unworldly sexual chemistry, but-but a connection, a deep connection based on respect and trust and transparency.
Okay, Owen, we do have all of those things.
- Why don't you just calm down? - Why don't you stop? I'm not some state senator that you can hoodwink into your deviant bidding.
My deviant bidding? Okay.
Yes, I may be a little bit older, but at least I'm not a manipulative schemer who's taking advantage of her elders for her jollies.
I can't be with somebody who would do that.
Owen, are you breaking up with me right now? Why don't you just get yourself someone who has an AARP card? Ah! Whatever you're selling, your timing is terrible.
Uh, actually, I'm here to pick up my cat, Horatio.
- Uh, hi, Cath.
- Hey, Patrick.
Come in.
He's all packed up.
Wait a minute, you're Patrick? Uh, yeah, yeah.
You must be Owen.
I've heard some great things.
Patrick as in her ex-husband? Uh, yeah, that's it, yeah, yeah.
Hey, buddy.
You ready to go home? But who was the Patrick that dropped off the cat? Oh, it's Patrick Sr.
, it's my father.
Hopefully he didn't, uh, didn't talk your ear off.
No, he was very nice.
You know, I gotta say, I, uh, I love the space here.
It's like Vervoordt meets Austin Modern Farmhouse.
That's exactly what I was going for.
I mean, call me old-fashioned, but I'm a sucker for functional minimalism.
Um, well, thank you.
Thank you so much for, uh, taking care of our little monster.
And it was really nice to meet you, Owen.
If only I had met you earlier.
Patrick seems nice and very handsome.
I told you.
I have a type.
What if I told you that everything I said earlier was a joke? I'd say it's time you found a new girlfriend.
TK? I think I'm gonna skip dinner tonight.
I'm not really hungry.
You always say that and then you end up eating at 2:00 a.
I just feel like being alone tonight if that's okay.
No, it's not okay.
Get up.
I mean it.
Cooper? Hey.
Heard you could use a friend.
- Did he call you? - He did.
But you should have.
How did you get his number? I'm not saying I did a background check, but I did a background check.
Pizza's in the oven.
Set up a timer so you don't forget.
You're leaving? You guys have a lot to talk about.
I don't know what to say.
Me neither.
And that's why he's here.
I'll see you in a bit.
Thank you.
I love you.
I know.
