Everwood s02e16 Episode Script

Unspoken Truths

So are you going to be famous like where you make music videos and Pepsi commercials and stuff? I think it's a little early for that, sweetie.
I mean, this manager guy, he might not even like us.
Although Jay said that he loved our tape.
Jay found him.
Well, yeah.
What's wrong with that about? Nothing.
Oh, I would just make sure he was a real manager before you got too invested.
I mean, he might be just one of Jay's stoner buddies who decides he wants to manage a band today.
Tomorrow, he'll be raising alpacas in Oregon.
What's an alpaca? You know, actually, the guy used to rap Toes Wet Rocket and one of those other college bands before they hit and Jay is pretty much using every contact he's had since, like, grade school to come and see us so you might want to cut him slack.
Yeah, sure.
If you let me come to your show, I can talk to the manager for you.
The grown-ups love me.
I wish I could, sweetie, but the bar we're playing at won't let you in.
It's kind of breaking the law.
But, aren't you going, Ephram? Yeah, definitely.
I wouldn't miss it.
Well, how are you going to get in? I'll figure something out.
Ephram, we've got a situation here.
I just got your report card.
Run for it.
I know.
D in Spanish, right? Well, yeah.
I thought I had a handle on it.
Obviously, I was wrong.
So this is what we're going to do Ah, uh, I already talked to the teacher.
I'm going to do some extra credit assignments, make up for it by the next progress report.
Well, that's fine but we're also going to get And I lined up a tutor to make sure this sort of thing doesn't happen again in the future.
Which, of course, I'll pay for with my own allowance because, let's face it, you shouldn't have to cover the cost of my own mistakes.
And what is the name of this tutor? Señor El Gato.
Señor El What-o? El Gato.
It means cat.
See, my Spanish is getting better already.
Oh, I almost forgot.
Car keys.
Looks like I'll be biking for a week or two or, you know, whatever you're comfortable with.
Dad! DAAAD! I got the maaail! While that is an accomplishment, it certainly doesn't require such voluble.
Check it out.
Oh, my Lord.
ROSE! Rose.
Well, there are A's on this report card.
Three of them.
I'm, like, totally smart.
What's going on? Our son got three A's.
You did.
Congratulations! That's wonderful, sweetheart.
Ya know, I gotta call Laurie Hudson.
Little Miss I'm-too-smart-to-date- -a-dumb-jock-like-you.
I think she needs to find another reason not to go out with me.
Ah, I'll bake a cake.
We should celebrate.
What is it, Harold? Look for yourself.
It's Amy's report card.
"Unspoken Truths" These are cool.
Well, I don't know if they do me justice.
I mean, they look good but do they say I'm a genius? No because they don't speak.
Hey, hey.
Less lip, more conjugating or, uh, El Gato here is not going to sign off on these little tutorials.
You know, I appreciate the assist but you're not really my Spanish tutor.
I could be.
You're looking at a man who got three A's here.
I mean because I am very trabajador.
Go ahead.
Write it down.
So what's wrong, hand dog? Why does there always have to be drama in the world of Ephram? You know if you were really smart, you'd figure out a way for me to get into The Hook on Friday for Madison's show.
Your dad's letting you go to a college bar after the big D? Give it up for Andy Brown, parent for the new millennium.
Well, he's not not letting me go.
He just doesn't know about the exact event.
But, you know, he didn't ground me so Because you beat him to the punch.
I had to.
I gotta make sure when Jay's budding Mr.
Manager guy signs them that Madison kisses me and not Jay while they're all toasting to their newfound fame and success which, of course, I'm not a part of.
At all.
So I'm sensing Jay is a big theme here.
But I can't get into The Hook because it's a bar.
They serve alcohol.
And I'm not 21.
How stupid is that? I mean, where is the logic? You can't walk into a place just because you're not 21? I mean, I go to the supermarket.
There's alcohol there.
No need to get political, dude.
I'm here for you.
It's covered.
What does that mean? "It's covered"? It means you're getting into the show.
How? Do you know somebody or something? Just meet me here tomorrow after 6th period.
You know if you pull this off It's Gato, dude.
El Gato.
Is he just skipping? Yeah, uh, having sex with a rock goddess tends to have that effect on a guy.
They're sleeping together? What did you think they were doing together this whole time? Playing Solitaire? Or some other two-person card game? Whatever.
Not my business.
Look, I need to ask you a favor.
And before you say no, it's not a big one.
Can you get the mail for me? Oh, so you can hide your report card from Mom and Dad? Too late.
They already saw it.
I believe this is what they call "karma".
Learn it, live it.
Love it.
I don't understand what you're so upset about.
It sounds to me you handled the whole thing very maturely.
He stole my thunder.
You can't ground a kid after pulling something like that.
And if you can't ground them, what can you do? Be pleasantly surprised by how well they're growing up all by themselves? Nah, that's passive.
That's totally passive.
I decided the best way to handle it was to beat him at his own game.
So I took those car keys and threw them right back in his face.
Maybe next time you can raise his allowance.
That'll show him.
Oh, you're funny.
You're very funny.
You ready for schedules? Hmm, you really need to invest in a Palm Pilot.
Alright, so you're covered for tomorrow.
And I can take care of Sam on Saturday afternoon.
Don't worry.
I get Delia that night.
Then I can give you next Saturday night if you want.
You can have the next ten Saturday nights 'cause I got nothin' going on.
Where are you and Linda going? I like to live vicariously.
Oh, I don't know.
Dinner, a movie.
Nothing special.
I'm just really glad to be over that whole courtship thing.
No fuss, no muss, no balloons necessary.
I'm so glad things are going so well for you guys.
It's nice to see you happy.
Oh, do you need the check, sir? Yes.
And, uh, are you Nina Feeney? Yes.
Just been served.
What? Go ahead.
Keep the change.
What is it? It's Carl.
He's filed for divorce.
How am I supposed to keep this room neat when there is no place to keep all my stuff? I don't know.
Just toss it under the bed or something.
They look under there.
Oh, what's wrong? Just my brother tried to piss me off today and it worked.
Two points for him.
What did he say this time? I don't remember.
It's nothing.
It's just, um It's alright.
Everything sucks right now.
I love it when you're specific.
I failed two classes in the last quarter.
And my parents found my report card first which means they know.
And they're probably sitting at home, wallowing in how right they were.
Well, see, now I know what's stressing you out so bad.
Come here.
You know what you need? A nice night off.
So I'll tell you what.
Tomorrow night, we will do anything that you want and that includes ice skating which you know kills me.
Really? -Hmmhmm.
I should fail stuff more often.
Oh, damn.
I just realized tomorrow's Friday.
Do you have to work? No.
My buddies from school are throwing this big party and I promised them I might go and I don't know It's no big deal.
I can just flake.
You should go that.
I've never met your friends from school.
Yeah, I know and you're not missing anything.
Trust me.
I want to.
After all the time we spend together, I think I should meet yours.
If you don't mind.
I would love for you to go.
I can show you off to all my friends.
You're like a goddess to them.
Then we'll go.
And remember then we can go ice skating because I know you want to.
Oh is that right? Oh, man.
What the hell? Calm down.
Hey sweetie.
So are you guys running a little late? It's after six.
Except practice goes to eight now.
We said no groupies this week.
What's your problem, dude? It's my fault.
I forgot to tell you.
We're extending practice every night two hours until the show.
We just want to get it really tight.
Oh, that's cool.
Maybe I can stick around.
My notes are in the car.
Actually the thing is we made this rule that we weren't allowing guests or anybody to watch this week.
No distractions, no boy toys.
Oh, I guess that means you're out, Jay.
Ephram, don't.
You Alright Fine.
I'm, uh, gonna take off.
Oh, I'll come and get you when we're done.
Eight-thirty, OK? Sure.
Well, it all appears fairly standard.
So how do you want to handle it? What do you mean? Well, I mean we could get all bulldoggy about it.
Take him for all he’s got Oh no.
I just want to get through this quickly and You know.
Just easy.
That’s fine.
Not as much fun, but it's fine.
I just want whatever the standard child support payments would be.
I don’t even really need alimony - - OK, I agreed not to be a bulldog, but I’m certainly not going to roll over and play dead.
We should at least explore your options.
Nina you managed the household the entire time Carl was away on business.
That accounts for at least fifty percent of the marriage But I agreed to do that.
It’s not right to ask him to pay for that now.
You may have agreed to some things, but you certainly didn't agree to let him cheat.
He cheated on you? Fabulous.
With a man.
Even better.
Forget it.
I’m not bringing up any of that.
Especially in front of Sam - Yeah, and what about Sam? How do you want to handle visitation? Every weekend? Every other weekend? These are the things that are gonna get sticky.
I don’t know.
He can see Sam whenever he wants to.
I don’t see why it needs to be any more complicated than that.
Because it’s a divorce, Nina.
It’s gonna to get complicated.
I'm gonna get water.
You want water? Love some.
I want you to listen to me, Nina.
This is the toughest part.
This moment.
But if you do this right, you won’t have to live the rest of your life regretting anything.
Or resenting anyone.
Or kicking yourself.
I know you just want to move on to the next chapter, and you will.
But I’m not going to let you sign on the dotted line and accept whatever standard minimum crap he’s offering.
You deserve much more.
Do you understand me? Well, what are you guys doing here? Where's Grandma? Your grandma asked us if we would step in for this particular meeting.
Does Grandma usually attend these types of meetings? I don't usually have these types of meetings.
Do I, Dad? No.
You don't.
You look thin.
Can we just get this over with please? Yes.
Uh, what can we do in terms of damage control? We don't want this one unfortunate term plaguing our daughter's otherwise pristine record when college applications roll around.
I understand.
And depending on how hard Amy's willing to work, there are a lot of options.
Like what? First, I would recommend dropping the two electives that you failed, Spanish and World Drama.
Minimize your course load for the rest of the year.
Focus on yourself and take the electives again over summer.
Summer school? That sounds reasonable.
Um, what else would you suggest? Well, that was great.
Just let her go.
I know.
I'm going to take the stupid classes.
OK? I'll get the tutors, OK? I'll fix it.
That's not what I wanted to say.
I know.
I'm a huge disappointment.
You're humilated, you're ashamed.
So what do you want me to do? Do you want me to change my last name? I could move to a whole another state if that would make you happy.
God, why do we have to keep doing this? I just wanted to say that we're here for you.
We've been here the whole time and we'll keep being here.
That's all.
It's OK.
I miss her, Harold.
This is a knitting store.
Ada's Nimble Needles.
Well, how is little old Ada gonna help me get into The Hook? Am I going to crotchet something for the bouncer during intermission? First of all, Ada is hot.
Dear God.
Howdy, boys.
What can I do you for? Hi, Ada.
I, I was wondering you could hook my friend here up with some Regia sock yarn? Sock yarn? I don’t need I don't need any sock yarn.
Follow me, gentlemen.
And will you flip the sign? What the hell? Tony Tiggerello.
North Dakota.
August, ’74.
A Leo.
That’s me.
I thought so.
I never forget a face.
Tony Tigerello? Park it over here, honey.
On the stool.
You are about to get your very first fake ID.
So, you don’t sell yarn? Baby doll, I got a Benz in the back.
Yarn don’t even cover my gas.
OK, I’m going to have this ready for you in an hour.
Seventy- five dollars.
No checks.
No credit cards.
Now look at me.
Normally, the name just comes to me.
But I’m not getting anything.
Um, well, how about Ephram? Ephram? No.
I’ll come up with something good.
Don’t worry, pussycat.
One hour.
Do not be late.
I love her.
Yeah, that's what I thought.
OK, what's that number? Great.
Doug, you're the best.
And you know if you could fax those figures to my office by tomorrow, I'd really appreciate it.
No, I'll give Nina your number.
No, no.
Just bill me.
That's fine.
Thanks again.
So long.
Hey, what was that all about? Oh, that's Doug Murphy.
He's an attorney friend of mine back in New York.
I was just running a few things by him to making sure that Nina's lawyer's as good as she seems.
Oooh, you bought for me.
So how is Nina? Well, she's a wreck.
I was up all night with her, just trying to keep her from crying.
She didn't want to break down in front of Sam and I knew if I just left her by herself, she'd collapse.
So anyway, I'm sorry I didn't call you back last night.
It was just so late when I got home.
That's OK.
It seems as though like you had your hands full.
And then today after the meeting with the lawyer, we went to lunch and she couldn't keep anything down.
Poor thing.
So, you, uh, went to the meeting with her? Yeah.
And thank God I did.
I mean, she would have sold herself down the river for a buck on the quarter.
You know you hear those stories about blood sucking women who take their husbands for everything they've got? They oughta meet Nina.
Well, maybe, you know, she just wants it to be done so she can get on with her life.
You know, start dating again.
Well, she'll have plenty of time for all of that.
Right now, all I just gotta make sure she's properly taken care of.
Doug is great for legal advice.
I just wish he could handle the case himself.
Well, it's probably for the best.
It's not like Nina can afford a lawyer like that.
Oh no.
I'm paying for it.
Red or white? What? Oh, red.
Red, it is.
What about this? Is this good? Sure.
Short's good and that's really good.
So what time should I be there? What time should you be where? Your show.
You go on at nine, right? Wow.
Short yet extremely tall.
Sweetie, I know you need an ID to get in.
I mean, normally you could just ride with us but with everybody just so uptight right now Oh, I don't think you'll be a problem.
I don't believe we've met yet.
I'm Gus Walhberg.
I'm 26 years old, a organ donor from Kentucky.
Oh my God.
Where did you get this? You would not believe me if I told you.
What? I just don't want you in trouble.
That's all.
Why? Do you think they'll know it's a fake? I'm talking about your dad If he finds out, he'll ground you It'll be a whole another fight.
I just, I just don't think it's worth this trouble.
It's just one show.
Yeah, but it's one show that can change your entire life.
I know and I love that you wanna support me.
I do.
I, I just hate being the cause of all these arguments with you guys.
I mean it gets Delia upset Delia? When did Delia become a factor in all this? Well, everything's a factor.
Well, I can take care of Delia and I take care of my dad.
I've been doing it for a long time.
You're not the only thing we fight about.
If that's all that's worrying you, then Is this about Jay? Oh, OK.
I'm sorry.
Forget that I said that.
If you don't want me to be there, then fine.
Of course I want you to be there.
Because I want you to be there.
So I'll see you tonight? Nine o'clock.
So your friends just rented out a bunch of rooms in a motel and called it a party? No.
This place isn't exactly what you'd call operational.
Ran out of money a few years back, it's mostly since deserted.
My friend Mike here had this really brilliant idea of having a progressive.
Progressive? Yeah, hey, what's up, man? Yeah, you know, using all the different rooms for different drinks.
Like, uh, 1C over here is jack and coke.
And 1F is And, oh, yeah.
Definitely picked the right room.
So I guess this means you're drinking again? That's the party, baby.
What else are you going to do? I thought when you said you wanted to come -here, you -Whatever.
I don't care.
Would you like yours with cranberry or without? Anti-depressant girl over here.
Can't mix the two.
You taught me that, remember? Yeah.
I was just saying to get you to like me.
I was trying to seem all concerned.
No, look, the pharmaceutical companies try to sell you that line in case something freaky happends and you try to sue them, that's all.
Trust me.
I work in a pharmacy.
I know these things.
OK, Dr.
I swear, Amy.
It's not going to kill you.
Alright? This is your night, babe.
I want you to loosen up .
I want you to have a good time.
We're going to forget about everything.
We're going to forget about our parents.
We're going to forget about grades.
Because tonight, tonight is about us.
/Day by day.
What my friends say/ Hey, check out those legs on the singer.
That chick is hot.
Oh, I wouldn't throw her out of bed for eating nachos.
Hell, no.
In fact, I'd drip that melted cheese -right off her -Hey.
What do you want? No, I was, um, I was, I was just wondering if you guys might know where, um.
Where the bathroom is? Thank you.
/I take it day by day.
Day by day/ Hey.
Uh, can I get a drink? You OK? You know, we don't have to make fire if you're tired.
No, I'm not tired.
But you're not OK.
See? I'm learning to read between the lines.
What is it? Did something happen at work today? Um.
Actually I was just thinking about Nina.
Oh, I know, I know.
I can't stop thinking about it either.
I keep thinking there's something more I can do but, uh, I don't know.
I don't do there.
Actually, that was what I was thinking exactly.
What do you mean? Well, you do so much.
I mean, you've done so much.
And still.
Well, this entire night, I can still tell you're thinking about her.
Well, that's because you're the one who brought her up.
Oh, you're right.
Let's just forget about it.
No, you're upset about something.
So let's talk about it.
Um, I guess I'm just, I'm confused by your friendship.
I mean, it seems to go behind the boundaries of what constitutes a tipical male-female relationship.
Well, I didn't know there were boundaries.
Is there a book somewhere I can buy that explains it to me? Please don't be sarcastic.
You asked me what's wrong and I'm trying, to be honest.
I'm sorry.
I just, I just, it seems very clear to me.
Nina's going through a very painful divorce and she needs a friend to see her through it.
That's all.
Well, of course she needs a friend.
And when you weren't there for her, I was the first one to tell you you were wrong.
So? Well, I don't know.
I mean go with her to all these meetings and to pay for the lawyer? Oh, I'm not paying for all the lawyers.
That's not the issue.
Nina's a single woman now.
It's hard.
I know.
I've been there.
But I mean, you acting, I don't know, like her pseudo husband isn't going to help.
It's at least going to make it harder when she finally realizes that she's alone.
But she's not alone.
Andy, you know what I mean.
She leans on you for things that are frankly more husbandly than friendly.
And well, you do the same with her.
Are you You, you make it sound like I'm, I'm No, I I don't mean anything for it.
I'm just saying that I'm uncomfortable.
Well, I understand that and I'm sorry.
But you're just going to have to get over it.
Excuse me? This is all in your head.
And I'm, I'm not going to apologize for friendship which I cherish.
Nor do I plan on changing it.
It's, it's just the way it is.
And if her feelings for you grow? They won't.
That's not what we're about.
And, and so the fact it bothers me means nothing to you? Well, I've gotten over a lot of stuff to be with you, Linda.
Much bigger than this.
Got it.
Good night, Andy.
I think I'm being followed.
Followed? You look so wasted right now.
You are cute.
And you are drunk.
-Oh, not so bad.
-Yeah, you are.
Not as bad as you.
What do you want? C'mon, I know I'm ranked.
Just tell me.
No, I'm just drunk.
I'm right.
Water? You're on water? Look closer.
What is it? A little bit of gino.
Gee, you know GHB? Isn't that for daybreak? No.
I mean, I guess some idiots use it for that.
A guy dropped some of it into this girl's drink and waits until she's unconscious.
Not really my scene.
But if you take the right amount, it can gives you this nice little high.
That's all.
You can't even taste it.
Then when it hits you What does it feel like? No.
C'mon, tell me.
Tell me.
It feels it feels like velvet.
Like smooth and chocolatey and heaven.
Like you go outside your body and just like, you feel these incredible things on your skin.
You know? It's like the air around you is like giving your skin a massage.
It just feels really good.
Does it feel like happy? Yeah, it makes me feel really happy.
-No, no.
Baby, what are you doing? -I just a little bit.
You're already drunk.
You don't need any of it.
Please? Well, OK.
OK, but just a sip.
-Not even a sip.
Let me make sure.
Thank you.
/Without me.
Without me.
/ Thank you so much.
You guys are great.
Thank you.
You were amaze Really? Yes.
It felt great.
It was very tight.
I'm Glenn.
Hi! Thank you so much for coming.
Hey man.
Hey Jay.
Great stuff.
Yeah, but she's the star, right? I mean, c'mon.
Is this not star quality? I think it is.
Ephram, are you drunk? I got the table to shoot.
Do you want to grab a drink with me? Yes.
Absol- friggin' -lutely.
You comin? Who is this kid? OK, you are drunk.
I need, I need to get you a cab.
No, no.
I'll sober up the next place I'm going.
Where are we going? Ephram, you can't come.
Why? Look, w-why d-do I always feel like I'm begging with you? Does it feel that way to you? Can we please not do this right now? No, no.
I'm serious.
I tell you that I love you.
Not only do you not say it back, but you, you basically start avoiding me? Are you avoiding me? That's not what's happening.
Ok, fine.
Then tell me what's happening.
I can't figure it out.
I'm dying here.
Just tell me.
What? Madison, let's go.
Robbins' loading the van.
We'll take my car.
I just need a minute.
Oh, is this what it's about? You're dumping me for the hair model? No, stop.
You're drunk.
And ugly.
Alright, back off.
We're having a conversation here.
Well, actually, it sounds like she's trying to get out of a conversation.
So why don't you be a good little high schoo l boy and take the hint? Ephram! Ephram! It's you.
I know you.
Stop following me.
Stop, stop.
You left me.
You left me alone.
And now, you're here and I'm here and you shouldn't be here.
Neither should you.
I loved you.
I loved you.
I want you to come back Stop following me.
Just stop.
Why are you being mean? I want you to leave me alone.
Don't you understand? I want you to go.
Go where? Where am I supposed to go? I failed school, Colin.
I failed my brother, I failed my parents, I failed you.
Where do you want me to go? I don't even know where to start.
You start by saying good-bye.
No, no.
I can't.
Yes, you can.
You're cold.
Tommy? Tommy? Tommy, are you Tommy, please wake up.
I don't know what to do.
Please wake up.
Someone, help.
Help me.
My, um, my boyfriend passed out in there.
That sucks.
Listen to me.
I need to call an ambulance.
He might die.
Chill out.
He's probably just napping.
He's not napping.
Well, you can't call an ambulance, sweetheart.
They bring the cops with them and if you bring the cops here, we're all busted.
Including you.
Wait a minute.
I know who you are.
You're Tommy's girl.
I need to use your phone.
Forget it.
I need help.
Now, hold on for a second.
I'm looking for Ephram Brown.
Yeah, he's all yours.
We gave him a warning and confiscated his ID.
We scared the crap out of him too.
Thank you.
Are you OK? Yeah.
I'll be in the car.
What are you doing here? They wouldn't let me come inside and see you.
What happened? Did they put you behind bars? No.
Just holding cell.
Oh my God.
Look, I'm sorry, Madison.
I'm so sorry.
I never meant to ruin your big night.
I just, I wanted to be there for you.
I did, I, 'cause you mean so much to me.
I love you.
I, I know that you don't feel the same way about me and you never will but This is so out of control that I don't even know what's happening anymore.
Well, tonight or I mean, with everything.
It, you, it, it wasn't, we weren't supposed to be.
It's, it's just so serious now and I, I wasn't planning, on that.
I, I don't, I don't think I'm ready for that.
With anybody or just me? OK.
You probably should get back.
It's getting late.
The band's probably waiting for you.
The manager.
Can we talk tomorrow? Yeah.
Yeah, of course.
Of course.
You were amazing tonight.
Thank you.
/How much gold but are you going for/ /Try to soothe your soul / /And I don't stay anymore / /All I ever did was try to get close to you/ Is this going to be bad? It's not going to be great.
Were you drinking? Yes.
-Did you drive? -No.
And I wasn't going to, I swear.
That cut on your face They put some antiseptic on it at the station.
It's just a scratch.
Look, whatever you're thinking about doing for punishment, you can double it.
I deserve it.
I'm hanging low.
Trust me.
Well, you're through administering your own punishment, Ephram.
I got it from here.
But I'm not going to ground you.
What? Not for this.
This is your free pass.
We each get one a year and this is yours.
I am, however, going to make you tell me about what happened tonight.
And what's been going on.
With Madison.
I went to the club with a fake ID that I bought.
I, uh, ordered a bunch of drinks.
Started a fight with her ex-boyfriend.
Basically just made a complete fool ofmyself.
Why? Did you think she'd like you better if you went? I guess.
I don't know why.
Everything that I do to bring us closer together just pushes her further and further away and I it's definitely one of those moments that it sucks that Mom is not here.
No offense.
None taken.
Just if she was here, I could ask her, you know, I could ask her what went wrong, I could ask her why Madison doesn't love me.
It's OK.
I just, I love her so much.
I know.
I know you do.
Amy? Amy? Dad.
What happened? Honey, you OK? He's unconscious but he has a pulse.
I checked his pulse.
Honey, are you on something right now? Yeah, I took a little GHB.
That's what he took but he took too much.
Was he twitching at all? (dar sacudidas) Did you see his body seizing or convulsing? I didn't see that.
I don't know.
Amy, get my bag.
Amy, my bag.
