A Million Little Things (2018) s01e14 Episode Script

Someday

1 GARY: After a tragedy, you grieve.
That's what you do.
It doesn't make any sense.
Nothing about suicide makes sense.
- And then - I don't know what you're doing later, but - I, um - Sorry.
I didn't realize you were already part of a duo.
life goes on.
You're not giving up on the restaurant.
That is your dream.
How are we gonna pay for it? At least, you hope it does.
We're not out of the woods yet.
We need to continue the chemo so that surgery is an option.
But to truly heal I think we should get a divorce.
we need answers, Jon.
You know somebody named Barbara Morgan? Jon made her the fourth beneficiary.
We need the truth - Who lives here? - No idea.
and I'm determined Oh, my God.
It's the view from the painting.
to find it.
B.
Morgan.
Barbara Morgan.
[DOORBELL BUZZES.]
[DOOR OPENS.]
Hey.
Can I help you? Yeah, I sure hope so.
I'm looking for Barbara Morgan.
Uh, 237 Wickenden Street, Number 5.
That's the address I have for her.
Well, you're in the right place, but I'm sorry, there's no one here by that name.
Yeah, I see the buzzer says "Nelson.
" I just really need to find this woman.
Were you a friend of Jon's? How do you know Jon? I don't, but a woman came by here, spoke to my husband.
Right.
Uh was her name Ashley? I think so.
She said that, um Do you have any idea why he killed himself? Oh, God.
I'm sorry.
- No, no, no, no, no.
It's okay.
- Sorry.
It's okay.
We don't.
I was hoping Barbara Morgan might have some answers.
Well, my husband and I have been living here a couple years now.
Maybe she lived here before us.
MAN: Honey, is everything okay? Yeah, it's fine.
Um, I-I really hope you find what you're looking for.
Yeah, me too.
Have a good day.
You too.
[DOOR LOCKS.]
What did he want? It's fine, Mitch.
He's gone.
- GARY: The Red Ferns, ladies and gents.
- [ROME CHUCKLES.]
And there's the grizzled front man, Eddie Saville.
Oh-ho! Wel Welcome home, honey! - Uh, role-play stops right there.
- [CHUCKLES.]
All right, all your texts were either about Theo or exaggerated crowd sizes.
And we get it.
You know? You didn't want to leave a paper trail, but now's the time.
Tell us about the women.
I want to hear about every sexual encounter you had on or off that bus.
Sorry to disappoint you guys.
- Come on! - You did have sex? Come on.
You dabbled, though, right? Y-You dibbled, though? [CHUCKLING.]
Okay, guys, that's enough! What's been going on here? I switched to dish, only to switch back to cable.
And, uh, how's Maggie doing? Ah.
She's bald, but she has cool, sexy, colored wigs.
- [CHUCKLES.]
- She's one round of chemo away from getting the surgery, so pretty good.
- That's fantastic.
- And get this.
This guy hired a private investigator.
I did not hire her.
She works at my office.
He's like a dog with a bone.
No, he's like a dog without a bone still trying to find his bone.
I would simply like to understand why Jon left one-quarter of his life-insurance policy to someone that we don't know.
What if we never know? Oh, I'm gonna figure it out.
Just like I'm gonna figure out how you managed to go on a sexless rock 'n' roll tour.
- Okay.
- No, what is that? - How you doing, man? - I'm chill, you know? My wife is opening a restaurant tomorrow.
Thanks, bro.
[GROANS, SIGHS.]
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
Listen up, crew.
It's time to get serious, so this is your new bible.
Service standards, house cocktails, et cetera, et cetera.
Let's review the menu, shall we? Honey, did you make these? Yes.
Is there a problem? You spelled "flambé" with an "R.
" Uh, I-is that right? [CHUCKLES.]
It's French, Mom, so it's either "flamber" with an "R" or "flambé.
" Then I would need an accent aigu.
You can ask Delilah.
She spent 26 years of her life in France.
Okay.
The grilled scallops are prepared with celeriac and spicy peanuts.
Which brings me to allergens.
Excuse me.
Hi.
Uh, I told you, you needed to get the liquor license by today or we have to take another gig.
No, we'll get it.
Yeah, and our Certificate of Occupancy, too.
You don't have your C of O, either? Anton, bartenders are also paid by the hour.
[CLICKS TONGUE.]
You'll be fine.
I promise.
Well, honey, it is all about the tips.
They're gonna be making much less if they're just slinging seltzer.
[SIGHS.]
Exactly.
Sorry, but this just isn't gonna work out.
Oh Thanks a lot, Mom.
- Uh-huh.
- Take it up out of the saddle right here.
Ah! I'm up.
- Come on! Dig in! Push it! - Yeah! [YELLS.]
- [CELLPHONE BUZZING.]
- You got it! Don't quit on me! - This is your day - I got to pause you.
That's my other lady.
[BUZZING CONTINUES.]
[PANTING.]
Hey.
How's it going with your mom? Say "soup spoon" if it's really bad.
What if I said "ladle"? Ohh.
I'll be right there.
All right, here's what I'm thinking.
I'm gonna come up with some signs to help you recognize when women want to have sex with you.
Okay, if I do this [SNIFFS.]
that's the sign to steal home.
Yep.
Think I got it.
Yeah? GARY: Huh? - Whoa! - REGINA: Fine.
I'll hold.
Wow.
I cannot believe this place.
Mm, right? Look at that one.
Always working.
And this one Heh gets more pregnant by the minute.
She promised me there aren't twins in there.
Okay, you're all caught up.
[CHUCKLES.]
- Hey.
- Hi.
You're back.
I am.
How was it? How was the tour? It was good.
[INHALES DEEPLY.]
[EXHALES SHARPLY, CHUCKLES.]
Well, um, this place just It looks amazing.
Yeah, well, it's actually a train wreck right now, and I got to try and get her a liquor license.
Excuse me.
Unh-unh-unh-unh! Maggie Bloom! No, no, no.
I will carry that.
What? No, it's not heavy.
It's just a bunch of hand soap and candles for the bathroom.
- Let me ask you something.
- Hmm? What's the longest you've ever gone without having sex? Uh junior year.
I thought I could pull off baby bangs.
Why? Because I'm starting to think that Eddie has not had sex since Jon died.
That's an interesting way to mark things.
Hi! You look great.
So do you.
- Aw.
It's a wig.
- Yeah.
So, the point I was trying to make is that now is exactly when you should be having sex.
Okay, I'm gonna let you do that.
[INDISTINCT TALKING.]
Ooh! Hello.
I am all about stalking, but who are we stalking? It's the guy from the gas station.
From our road trip.
The one who likes Simon and Garfunkel.
You tracked him down?! No.
Yes.
He had a bar with a very memorable name, which allowed me to track him down.
Mm-hmm.
Well.
Hey, he doesn't just own a bar.
Yeah, exactly.
It's Andrew Pollock of the Pollock Restaurant group.
And I thought maybe he could help us.
Oh, I definitely think he could help you.
Maybe even with the restaurant.
- Will you stop that? - Delilah, call him.
What do I say? "Hello.
Hi.
It's me.
Do you remember me from pump 6?" That's it, because that's what happened.
That's your meet cute.
I mean, the only thing that scared him off was your ring, and you could take that off this time.
No, but it's professional.
I need two, and not just bartenders.
I need mixologists.
[THE LOVETTES' "I NEED A GUY" PLAYS.]
Yep, I'll hold.
W-What is that music? It's a playlist I made for the opening Fun '60s music.
You used to love this stuff.
It's my opening, not your oldies station.
You just can't make decisions like that without asking me.
Okay, but sounds good.
[SIGHS.]
Who are you e-mailing? It's Neil.
He's wishing us good luck.
You told him about the opening? He's my brother.
Of course I did.
Please tell me he's not coming.
No, he's not.
He's not well enough to travel.
He's in the hospital, actually.
The, uh the silverware is spotty.
I'm gonna have them polish it.
[LOUD CLATTER.]
[GASPS.]
That's on me.
I think that you can admit that desperate times call for desperate measures.
And he is desperately attractive.
No way.
I can't do it.
[GARY SIGHS.]
- Hey! - Hi.
You know that's the universal sign for watching porn, right? What's going on in here? - Porn.
- It was totally porn.
- Yeah.
- Mm-hmm.
Mm-hmm.
Clear your history! That's a rookie mistake.
- Yeah.
- Hello.
Hi.
Ed and I are leaving.
Do you need anything? Do you want anything? Need a ride? 'Cause your Uber driver is here.
You can call me "Guber.
" Or "Gyft.
" Okay, I'm fine.
Thank you.
I can get my own ride.
I can carry my own bags.
I really appreciate you taking the time to worry about me, but it is too much.
You're worrying about everybody now.
It's Delilah, Eddie Between that and your positive attitude, you're really starting to throw off the whole ecosystem around here.
But still, that's a long time for Eddie not to have sex, right? REGINA: We do not have enough scallops.
Dante, I need you to swing by the fish market.
- DANTE: Yes, Chef.
- [CELLPHONE CHIMES.]
[BREATHING DEEPLY.]
[DOOR OPENS.]
Do you have a second? They need help out there with the t Is everything okay? Honey? Actually, no.
I just got an e-mail from Neil, too.
Why did you give him my address? Because he's family, Regina.
He's just trying to be supportive.
Mm-hmm.
You should really go out there.
The waiters are arranging the tables all wrong.
You know, actually, they're doing it exactly the way I asked them to.
Really? That's how you want the tables? Mom, my bartenders just quit, I don't have the paperwork to even open yet, and everything's gone wrong.
Why is it I have waited my entire life for you to take my side? Just once take my side! Gina.
Hey.
What's going on? What's wrong? It It doesn't It doesn't matter.
I just I need to stay focused.
I can't get distracted.
That's right, yeah.
Everything is going wrong, and we're opening tomorrow.
[INHALES DEEPLY.]
How are we going to do this? Hey, I'm gonna go talk to somebody who can help us.
You just stay focused in the kitchen.
I got everything else covered, okay? Okay.
We're gonna get through this together.
Yeah, damn right we are.
ROME: Why isn't Shelly doing this? She's the one who thinks they're spotty.
Y'all know my mother.
[SILVERWARE CLANKS.]
- You okay? - I'm fine.
Just not gonna get my second spin in.
That's all.
You've been spinning a lot recently.
If that bike could move, I'd be in California by now.
[CHUCKLES.]
How's it feel to still be in Boston? [EXHALES SHARPLY.]
The meds have been out of your system for a while now.
Yeah.
But I'm fine.
There are rough days, but there were rough days on the meds, too.
You used to say that it was like wearing a heavy coat that you couldn't take off.
Days like that? Try to understand this.
I want to be in control.
Not some pill.
[CLANKING, LIQUID POURING.]
ANDREW: Hi.
Hi.
Hi.
I-I don't know if you remember me.
Uh wait a minute.
No.
[SCOFFS.]
No, I'm just kidding.
Simon and Garfunkel, right? [CHUCKLING.]
Of course.
So, what brings you to my gin joint? Well, actually, I could use some Some he some some advice, some professional advice.
Okay.
Do you want to grab a table? Sure.
Yes.
Oh.
We'll, uh, have to make it a table for three.
[CHUCKLES.]
Yeah.
Are you really a private investigator? Like, are you allowed to tell people that? [CHUCKLES.]
I'm not in the CIA.
[BOTH LAUGH.]
I'm sorry.
You're Eddie Saville, right? GARY: Oh.
I'm sorry.
I'm a Red Ferns fan.
- Oh, don't be sorry.
- [SCOFFS.]
You guys are touring again.
- We just finished.
- Col, this has a bow on it.
I actually just got back today.
I might've seen you in Hartford.
Yeah, I did see you.
Yeah.
[CHUCKLES.]
It was an awesome show.
- Awesome show.
- Yeah.
You guys met in Hartford, huh? [CHUCKLING.]
Yeah.
Yeah, from afar.
So, anyway I have contacted every Barbara Morgan I could find on the East Coast.
No luck.
Do you have any other leads for me? No.
Just the painting.
Well, I've reached out to art galleries, as well.
Haven't found anyone who's shown an artist named B.
Morgan yet.
But if I find her, do I get a backstage pass? [CHUCKLES.]
Oh, I know a guy who can make that happen.
- Oh? - The tour's over.
I don't know, friend.
The [SNIFFS.]
tour's never over.
- You okay? - Hmm? He's got a sinus infection, is all.
Oh.
It's not contagious.
I have some connections that can help with the liquor license.
I don't only own this place.
I have Four other restaurants.
- Yes, I know.
- Yeah.
I may have put your name in a search engine.
[CHUCKLES.]
How did you come to own this place? Um my husband died, and he left it to us.
It was the last thing that he did.
I know it's probably become too important to me, but, uh The good ones usually do.
There's a lot riding on it.
You know, I lost my wife three years ago.
I'm I'm sorry.
Me too.
You remind me of myself the day I opened my first place.
[CHUCKLES.]
Scared and pregnant? Determined.
[CHUCKLES.]
[KNOCK ON DOOR.]
Excuse me.
I don't want to bother you.
I just need your final menu.
I want to get it to the printer.
Great.
Thank you, sweetheart.
What did he mean by "Glad it all worked out"? What did who mean? Neil.
"Glad it all worked out" What did he mean by that? I don't know.
I don't know what the big deal is.
He was thinking of you.
Is that so bad? Yeah.
I don't want him thinking of me.
Just tell me what he meant by "worked out.
" I guess he thought you were having money problems.
You guess? He knew, yes.
Okay? I told him.
Don't be angry at him for trying to help.
How did he help, Mom? How did he help? The money for the restaurant came from him.
Oh, my God.
Honey, I don't have that kind of money.
And And, look, in in Neil's defense, it was just He wanted me to tell you that it was from him.
I-I just I-I knew it would only upset you.
Get out of here.
Oh.
Regina, you just need to calm down.
Get out! I know you don't like your uncle.
I know the two of you haven't gotten along in the past, but you have to admit, what he has done is very nice.
Neil's the one who's made all of your dreams come true, Regina.
Oh, come on.
Regina, please.
Gina, hey.
This is Andrew.
He's gonna help us get through this.
Gina.
There's nothing to help us through.
Every penny my mother gave us, we're giving back.
This restaurant will never open.
Not with me involved.
I don't understand what's going on.
What's she saying? That the money for the restaurant didn't come from her mom.
It came from Neil.
Who's Neil? Her uncle.
I don't know him.
He wasn't even at our wedding.
And now she won't she won't come out of there.
[SIGHS.]
She needs you.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
You do know these tables are too small, right? Yes.
Just put it on the list.
Guess I missed all the drama, huh? Well, Maggie's over there now.
Maybe that'll help.
I refuse to believe she doesn't want this restaurant to open.
Who's the happy fixer? Oh.
That, um It's Andrew.
He's been very helpful.
He's got like five restaurants.
Oh, really? And he just came over to help you out, huh? I mean, he seems a little tall for a guardian angel.
[CHUCKLES.]
You think he he's really just here to help out? I mean, come on.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Nice to meet you.
I'm Andrew Pollock.
Gary.
Mendez.
Okay, I got your liquor license.
- [CHUCKLES.]
- Wow.
Thank you.
Wow, indeed.
How much does a bribe cost these days? [CHUCKLES.]
Nice to meet you, Gary.
- Um, okay, I'll see you in the morning.
- Okay.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Thank you.
We're gonna have to exchange these.
You know what? I'll call my guy.
- Great.
- See you tomorrow.
Yeah, he's got a tablecloth guy.
- What's your problem? - I don't have a problem.
But if I did, I bet you Andrew could fix it.
Oh, Jeanie, say you'll be there when I come back Say nothing's changed I love you And that's a fact Nice! [LAUGHS.]
So who was Jeanie? I want all the liner notes.
I'd been on the road a lot, and I was really missing [INHALES SHARPLY.]
this burger place called Jean's.
[CHUCKLES.]
I thought she was some long-lost love.
Well, you haven't had their cheese fries.
Well, I guess not.
So You okay? Yeah.
Uh, no.
I'm sorry.
Look, um [CLEARS THROAT.]
the thing is, it's not that I don't want to.
But my life is just very confusing right now.
No.
I get it.
You don't have to be an investigator to know that you are on the rebound.
[CELLPHONE RINGING.]
Oh.
I bet that's my office.
No.
Get it.
It's fine.
This can't be all for naught.
She's coming back, right? 'Course she is.
Come on.
[SIGHS.]
Look, all I, uh all I meant earlier was, you know, you should You should be careful, okay? 'Cause y-you trust people too much.
I can take care of myself.
Let's lock up.
[CELLPHONE BUZZING.]
Dude.
Hey.
I'm with Joanna.
- Hello, Joanna.
- JOANNA: Hi.
Joanna just heard from a gallery who showed an artist named B.
Morgan.
You're kidding me.
Hey, Gina, I have Maggie with me.
You think we can come in? I was supposed to go to this dance.
I wanted to.
Everyone else went.
I wasn't invited.
It kind of broke my heart.
Dances are really important to teenagers.
I wasn't a teenager.
I was only 12.
It felt like no one asked me because I was the only black girl in my class.
I was in my room feeling sorry for myself.
He knocked on the door.
[SNIFFLES.]
He'd found out about the dance.
He felt bad for me.
He said, "Don't worry about the boys at school.
I think you're beautiful.
" And then I took my shirt off.
He asked me to.
Gina.
Yeah, I know.
I know.
I shouldn't have.
That's not what I meant.
But I needed to feel beautiful that night.
I needed to feel accepted.
I just wanted him to console me.
When he came closer, I didn't move away.
I let him touch me.
I've never told anyone that.
[SCOFFS.]
I'm just so ashamed.
Regina, you need to listen to me.
You were 12.
You didn't do anything.
And you did not let him do anything.
He did it to you.
No.
It's not like he raped me.
No, what he did was sexual assault.
So, the the next day, I tried to tell my mother.
And [EXHALES SLOWLY.]
she, uh all she said to me was [CRYING.]
"You must have misunderstood him.
He was just trying to comfort you.
" And all I thought was that she was right.
I was too flirty.
No.
No.
Gina, you did not misunderstand anything.
No.
What happened to you was not your fault.
Listen to her, Gina.
You were molested.
[CRYING.]
Oh, my God.
[SNIFFLES.]
[SOBBING.]
Gina, baby.
What can I do? I didn't tell you because it was better to pretend it never happened.
I didn't want it to be real.
I understand that.
I have to go see him.
Now.
Wait.
You've You've kept this in for so long.
Do you Do you even know what you would say to him? Wait until you're ready.
Ready? I I won't be ready until after I do it.
Do you remember what Jon told me? What I keep telling myself "You can someday yourself out of a life.
" This is not about the restaurant anymore.
I have to go.
He can't think that I took that money.
Okay.
Okay.
Two conditions.
I'm driving and we're bringing backup.
GARY: You're really gonna go on a two-hour road trip and not tell me where you're going? You're headed to some obscure gallery.
What's the difference? I told you where I'm going.
I will be fine.
I just want you to take care of yourself.
That's all this is.
You got one more round of chemo before you get the surgery.
If I'm lucky.
Okay, that's it.
That's See, this is the attitude that I don't care for.
But you know what? Just to keep you thinking positive, I have made a variety of artisan sandwiches for the road.
San [SCOFFS.]
Gary.
I was serious.
In any ecosystem, qualitatively different influences oppose each other.
What the heck are you talking about? In biochemistry Which I took One set of chemicals drives the system in one direction, and another set drives it in the opposing direction.
Sugar is sweet, but without insulin, it will kill you.
You were born to be insulin, Gary the negative feedback.
Please don't get too sticky.
We need you on that wall.
[SIGHS DEEPLY.]
The food's in the bag.
I made too many sandwiches.
Mm-hmm.
Now, go steal some candy from a baby.
It'll make me feel better.
[CELLPHONE BUZZES.]
I can't talk.
I can't.
How much longer till we get there? Like an hour.
Do you know what you want to say? I'll know when I get there.
Maybe you should practice.
No.
Well, he's right.
You should probably figure out what you want to get out of this.
I want him to acknowledge what happened, say he's sorry.
Yeah, he might not do that.
Fine.
He can say what he wants.
But I'm telling him I know what happened.
I'm looking him straight in the eyes and telling him I know what he did.
[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES.]
Thank you.
Andrew.
One brand-new liquor license.
[CHUCKLES.]
Thank you.
I took the liberty of putting it under glass.
Wow.
[CHUCKLES.]
- Let's hang it.
- Let's.
Oh, and I got you two bartenders.
- You did?! - Yeah.
Thank Thank you.
Have you heard from Regina yet? No, not yet.
I keep calling.
It's still early, though.
She'll She'll be here.
No, sir, I'm sorry.
I can't give you that information.
You need to speak to the attending on service Dr.
Anthony.
Okay, we We don't need a doctor.
We just need this guy's room number.
That's it.
I understand that, sir.
Um I don't know exactly where he is, - but I will try and page him for you.
- Okay, let's page him.
No, wait, wait, wait.
Uh, don't page him.
Just And, please, kindly look me in my eye while I'm talking to you.
Um, why is it that Dr.
Anthony can talk to me and you cannot? Uh, I'm just Take me Take me through your entire day.
Let's do that.
How about How about, say, like, the beginning of your day starts here? - Sir, I'm - Like, in this area.
This is the beginning.
Over this way, right? So let's let's start here.
Just walk me through that.
Sir, I'm sorry.
There are rules at a hospital.
I believe in rules.
I believe in rules.
I'm a big fan of rules, okay? Built my house with all rulers.
Did not use one tape measure.
He's in room 306.
[INHALES DEEPLY.]
[EXHALES DEEPLY.]
[DOOR OPENS.]
[DOOR CREAKING.]
Excuse me.
I'm looking for Neil Bishop.
Are you Shelly? No, I'm her daughter.
Why? Your uncle died a few hours ago.
I'm sorry you didn't get to say goodbye.
They look happy.
They won't diagnose it for six months, but trust me They all have Lyme disease.
I'm trying to steal candy from a baby.
It's a homework assignment.
Mm.
I found something, gentlemen.
We had one left.
It was mislabeled, or otherwise it probably would've sold.
Her last piece sold a few years ago, before I was here.
But it is funny All of her work was purchased by the same person.
Let me guess Jon Dixon.
You know him? We sure do.
Where'd you send the money, if you don't mind my asking? [KEYBOARD CLACKING.]
237 Wickenden Street.
Number 5.
I was there.
She moved.
I feel worse.
I feel cheated.
Like he did it to me twice.
Oh, my God.
[SIGHS.]
She's here.
I want to go out the back way.
Aw, come on.
Wait, babe.
No, no.
I told her.
I was 12 years old.
What the hell did I have to tell her to get her to believe me? I avoided that man my entire life, and she pretended like Like it never happened.
And what, am I supposed to tell her all over again? As if she'd hear me? Gina, I want to say something, and this could be totally off base, and this does not excuse anything, but there could be a reason why she wasn't able to be there for you.
It's unlikely that your uncle only molested you.
I mean, if he did this to his niece, there's a good chance he was doing it to other girls.
And maybe even his little sister.
[SIGHS.]
And if that's the case, you know, accepting your truth would have made her have to face her own.
[BREATHING SHAKILY.]
You came here to talk to him.
He doesn't matter anymore.
You two cannot continue on like this.
Gina, you have come this far.
[BREATHES DEEPLY.]
I don't know why you're here, but I have to get inside.
- No, Mom.
Mom.
- What? What did he do to you? What are you talking about? Neil didn't do anything to me.
Mom.
I called Dr.
Heller.
I need to take off the coat.
I'm getting back on the antidepressants.
I'm proud of you.
I'm proud of her.
That's crazy.
Thanks a lot, Captain.
Thanks for coming down.
I'll be in touch.
Hey.
I didn't see you there.
That's 'cause I snuck up on you.
[CHUCKLES.]
I just finalized the Certificate of Occupancy.
- No kidding! - Yep.
