Auld Lang Syne

Kathleen Scarlett Mularkey.
The hell do you think you're doing? Don't tell Mom.
Only if you give me a drag.
Where did you get this? Stole it from Mom's purse.
I think she might be drunk.
Well, yeah, we got drunk together this morning.
Damn it.
I wish I was drunk I just saw Tully.
What? When? Like right out front, like, ten minutes ago.
Did you talk to her? No.
I'm pretty sure she left.
You okay? Yeah, I mean I don't want to think about it.
Today's about Dad.
Yeah.
Yeah.
I can't believe Dad's gone.
It doesn't seem real.
I sat out on the lawn last night with the old telescope Kept hearing his voice in my head.
"Katie bear, get your butt out here and look at the moon!" It's gonna be full tomorrow Nice.
- Huh? - Mmm.
- Perfect.
- Huh.
Tully and her mom are coming over to help trim the tree.
Tully was saying Cloud's, like, way into the moon.
- What kind of name's Cloud? - Dad.
Be nice.
You can tell her a piece of you is up there.
I'm just one of the people that worked at the factory that built the rover, okay? Something you touched is on another planet.
I mean, I know it's not a planet, but how many people can say that? - You're a knucklehead, you know that? - Yeah, I know.
Hey, you two.
There she is.
Hey.
You all right? You look kind of flushed.
Ah it's cold.
You get what you need? Yeah, I hope Tully and her mom like rhubarb.
Nobody likes rhubarb, Mom.
Well, there was a sale on rhubarb, so Must've been a hell of a line at the store.
You were gone for over an hour.
Yeah, I had to get gas and I forgot the eggnog.
Then I ran into Bunny Roberts.
You know how she can talk.
- Oh, yeah.
- Yeah.
Well, I should get this pie started.
God, that's so weird.
I don't understand.
Gran's check is late.
Bills are due.
I need to get groceries.
That's on me.
I cashed it last week.
Band needed a new amp.
But you're not even with the band anymore.
You and Leon broke up.
Didn't know we'd break up when I gave him the money.
Oh, really? 'Cause I did.
Well, you are a regular Alberta Einstein, aren't ya? What are we supposed to do about food? There's bread! Make toast! Or not.
Well, it's cool.
'Cause I have a plan.
Leon left me a little early Christmas present.
So your plan is to get even higher.
No, I'm gonna sell his stupid stash.
He owes me.
In two days, we'll have all the money we need.
Don't worry, baby.
Mommy has it under control.
Just, yeah Okay, I need fresh "Carol Tries It" for the holiday season.
"Carol Tries Carols.
" Tacoma has requested I not sing.
Ooh.
"Carol Tries Chimneys"! You go down a chimney like Santa! And break my other leg? "Carol Tries Tasers.
" How is that festive? "Carol Tries Toys.
" You review the hottest toys of '84.
Cabbage Patch Kids and those transforming robots.
You reading my notes? No way! Such a thief! Oh, yeah, you were probably reading mine.
Yeah, you wish, Mularkey.
Yeah, except I was gonna suggest that we give them to needy kids after.
Yeah, because you read that off my notes! Oh, my God, I totally didn't.
Okay, okay, okay.
I'm keeping the toys, for my niece and nephew.
They're needy too.
They live in a duplex.
Has anyone got anything for Tully? Um, I've actually been working on a piece about the CONEX Factory in Snohomish.
They made parts for the lunar lander.
My father worked there for 25 years.
They're closing it down.
So there's hundreds of layoffs.
It's a really huge local news story.
Very nice, Mularkey.
I like it.
- Can I get an outline by tonight? - Mm-hmm.
Okay.
- Great meeting.
- Yeah, great.
It was good.
Oh, my God.
I've never actually seen a bosom heaving in real life.
I've read about it in books.
Johnny and I are just friends.
I mean, we were just, like, joking around.
Your nipples are hard.
- It's cold! - No, it's not.
Yes, it is! Okay, Johnny and I talked the other night and he doesn't want to date me and I don't want to date him.
And saying it out loud freed us to just be friends without all the other bullshit.
Bullshit.
If I was still hung up on Johnny, would I be going on a blind date tonight with our downstairs neighbor's best friend's nephew who works in finance and was described to me by Mrs.
Pantozopolous as a mega hunk? You're bringing a mega hunk to the Tacoma Christmas party? Yeah, so? But it's not to, you know, make Johnny jealous? No! Not at all.
Uh-huh.
Okay.
Okay, Mularkey, wish me luck.
I have that meeting with Wilson King.
Yeah, but he said that he would only hire you if you sleep with him.
I'm gonna explain even though that's never gonna happen, he'd be a fucking fool not to hire me.
I am a goddamn legend in the making! That's right, you are! Nice to see you, Tully.
I'm glad you decided to come.
Please, sit down.
Nice to see you too.
So, um I know we're both busy, so I'll cut to the chase.
I want you in the KLET family.
I'm prepared to offer you a two-year contract.
I think you'll find the terms are more than generous.
Whoa.
That's Double what you make at KPOC.
You'll also have double the air time you're getting now and you'll be on a fast track to the anchor chair.
So shall we make some dreams come true today? - I would like to work here.
- Great.
I'll just get a pen.
But there's a few things I'd like to talk about first.
We can hammer out any remaining details over lunch.
We'll get some champagne, celebrate.
I'm just teasin'.
Here you go.
Okay.
What are we doing here? I'm just joking.
I may be the boss, but I'm known as a bit of a prankster.
You'll see.
Hilarious.
Can I just - Yeah, but first stand up.
- Why? Because I asked.
Do I have to say please? So, now can you do a little Why? Are you always this difficult when you're dealing with authority? I want to see you.
I want to get a sense of what I'm paying for.
We could do more with the tits.
Okay.
I'm This is I'm not comfortable.
Get off it, Tully.
We both know demure is not your strong suit.
You read the news like it's dirty, and I like that, but we could do more with the tits.
I want every male viewer in Seattle to have a hard-on while he's watching you.
Like I have right now.
Okay, I'm leaving.
- No, no, no, no.
Relax.
Relax.
Relax! - Hey! Relax.
You need to stop worrying.
- Stop touching my face! - It'll give you wrinkles.
Hey! Hey! What the fuck is wrong with you? You're not even that hot.
And you're a shitty reporter.
Your only talent was getting shot.
Good luck out there.
You'll need it.
How long do you think it's been? Since you threatened to destroy my career because I wouldn't sleep with you? I'm not sure, but it feels like yesterday.
I want to apologize for my behavior.
And I want you to know I'm a family man now.
Everything's different.
I have nothing but respect for you.
I think The Girlfriend Hour is one of the crown jewels of daytime television.
It is the crown jewel.
Well, come on.
Oprah.
But it's lost some luster.
That's because the network keeps trying to push her to be someone else.
I agree.
Tully needs to be Tully.
Not Ellen, not Oprah.
Just Tully.
But you're in real trouble.
Your production company sold you off, the network is spooked, ratings are down, and that train wreck of an article in Seattle Digest didn't help.
Plus, there was that miscarriage meltdown.
It wasn't a meltdown.
That was a great fucking episode.
The sponsors disagree.
That's where I come in.
I want to make The Girlfriend Hour the best it can be.
- Do you trust him? - Hell, no.
Wilson King is a snake.
But he owns my show now, so I have to work with him.
This is so fucked.
It's okay.
It's not 1984 anymore.
I'm not some naive kid begging for a job.
I am The Girlfriend Hour.
I won't let him fuck with me.
I could stay, just for today.
Go spend time with your family.
You're leaving in two days.
Now get out of here before I call security.
Are you, like, scared about your dad going to Iraq? Well, kind of.
But whatever.
Journalists are safe, so Yeah, except if Saddam uses his chemical weapons.
He's not even in power anymore.
But the weapons are out there.
- Will you shut up? - What? Emma, your dad's here.
Mom, we have to finish this article for the school paper.
It's due tomorrow.
Hey, I get it.
I know all about journalistic deadlines.
Yeah, Marah said you were some kind of writer or something, like, a really long time ago.
Yeah, um, something like that.
Bye, Mom.
Mind hanging out? They wanna finish their project.
Yeah, of course.
Um, Kate What the hell is this? That is my Santa collection.
It started with one and now it's a thing that can't be stopped.
People keep buying them for me even though I don't want them to, so at Christmas, I have to put them out all the time, even though I hate it, but I also secretly kind of love it.
Is it me or is Beach Bum Santa unnervingly sexy? Well, that's exactly why I bought him.
What do you know about this Josh character? With the eyeliner.
I don't like that kid.
God, I sound like my mother.
She also had a Santa collection.
I am my mother.
You know, we probably shouldn't do this with the kids upstairs.
- I'm not ready to tell Emma.
- Oh, definitely not.
But it does make it kind of hotter.
All the sneaking around.
Yeah, but we don't want to get caught.
There's a squeaky step.
We'll hear them coming.
Oh, Johnny! Um Um - Mom, I'm hungry.
- Dad, can we give Josh a ride? Yeah, sure, sweetie.
Well, uh, I'll see you later, Kate.
Yeah, it was really nice to see you, Travis.
Oh, God.
The Santa collection.
It's not that bad.
I call people by the wrong name all the time.
Yeah, while you're making out with them? I mean I'm trying to find a positive spin on this, but I got nothing.
The worst part is I'm into Travis.
It didn't mean anything.
It was just a slip of the tongue.
While he was slipping you the tongue? Ha! - That was a good one.
- No.
Just call him, acknowledge the weirdness, make a joke about it.
You're welcome to use my tongue pun.
And then invite him over and answer the door naked.
What? Wearing nothing but stilettos.
He'll forget you called him the wrong name.
He'll forget his own name.
Yeah, what if I trip while I'm walking down the stairs naked in stilettos and I hit my head and lose consciousness.
Then Marah finds me and she calls 911, the paramedics come and I'm all, like, splayed out, you know? What? And then one of the paramedics is Max.
Okay.
This just took a very strange turn.
You know that's exactly what would happen to me? Sadly, you're right.
At least you didn't tell your new husband you're glad you had a miscarriage and you wish you'd never married him.
What, you said that to Max? I was drunk, so it's fuzzy.
But it went something like that.
Well, did you mean it? No.
I miss him.
I keep almost calling him, but I don't know what to say.
Well, you could start with, "I'm sorry.
" We both know that's never been my strong suit.
Maybe this would be a good time to start? Maybe.
Maybe we're just better off.
No.
I like this one.
Don't give up that easy.
Go call him and then call me back.
Okay.
Love you.
- Hey.
- Oh.
You're here.
Yeah, uh, you just missed Cloud.
She said to thank you for the hospitality, but she felt like we needed some more space.
Okay.
Great.
That's great.
I wanted to call you, but I just After last night, I didn't know what to say.
I talked to my buddy Mike.
He's a a lawyer.
He said we can get an annulment, like, this week.
Is that what you want? We jumped into this whole marriage thing pretty fast.
And, uh we got a little crazy because of the baby and everything, so I just figured Okay.
So, you're leaving? Yeah.
You know, everything that's mine in your apartment fits in this bag.
- Felt kind of like a metaphor.
- For what? I don't fit in your world.
I don't think that's true.
- Anyway, I just - Can we just I'm sorry.
For everything.
I just I need to go.
Goodbye, Tully.
Marah? - Tull, what are you doing here? - Can I sleep over? Of course.
What's going on? Max left.
We broke up.
But you guys are so in love.
You're married.
Everything's all wrong.
Yeah, because losing the baby was so traumatic, for both of you.
You need to reach for each other.
Okay, just give it a day, let everybody cool off, and then ask him to meet you at the park where you guys got married, as like an official new beginning.
- Isn't that from a movie? - It's from every movie.
Because it works.
It's romantic and it's symbolic and you deserve to be happy.
Maybe.
Maybe I'll just wither away, alone, forever.
Or maybe I'll get a cat.
I love you.
You're crazy.
I love you too.
Hey, Travis, it's Kate.
Um Give me a call when you get a sec.
I, um You know what? I was actually just calling to apologize for the other day when I, um, called you Johnny while we were kissing.
I, uh He was on my mind and so his name just popped into my head and that's why I said it.
Anyways, a total accident.
So, um, call me.
I'd love to get together.
Bye.
Um, hey Travis, it's me.
That sounded, um The only reason he was on my mind is because I have a mental list of things to give him before he leaves tomorrow, like his foot fungus medicine, which is in my medicine cabinet, which is what I was thinking about while we were kissing.
And so, um, anyway um So, sorry again.
Give me a call.
Bye.
Shit.
Um Travis, it's me again.
Kate.
Um It's not that kissing you makes me think about foot fungus medicine.
It's just that it popped into my head because I keep a lot of mental lists.
And, um the kissing was not dull.
I mean, it is really exciting, and your tongue is so expressive.
Like you really mean it and I like that.
It's exciting and it's erotic and, um To sum up, it was great kissing, great Oh! All the sex stuff that we've been doing, and, um, I hope that we can keep doing it.
Dude, your mom is buck wild.
- Knock, knock! - Hold on, I'm changing.
Oh.
- Hello there.
- I said I was changing.
Didn't hear you.
Tully, say hello to Brooks Banack.
- Hey, Brooks.
How you doing? - Yo, what's up? Brooks hosts the sixth-most popular syndicated radio show in the country.
We count down the top eight songs of the week in between prank calls.
He's your first guest today.
No.
We have "Tough Love" with Dr.
Susie.
It's a regular monthly segment.
Bumped.
Dead to us.
Males 18 to 45 find her shrill and irritating.
We want this show to be appointment viewing for men.
It's called The Girlfriend Hour.
And we want them to watch it with their girlfriends.
It's called co-viewing.
Men mean bigger ad dollars.
What are you going to do? You know, we make the money.
So But our research shows when it's women talking, guys tune out.
Too many high-pitched voices, it makes them think of their wives and their mothers.
And that's bad because? Ha! I like you.
I don't have any interview questions prepared.
There's cards ready to go.
Brooks is working on a relationship advice book, so I want you to focus on that.
Well, the premise is men are like dogs, but women are like cats, and that's why we can't get along.
Sounds groundbreaking.
- Yeah - Anyway, great talk.
See you out there.
Have fun.
- Hey, how was Emma's? - Fine.
- Wanna help with the cookies? - Nope.
Your dad will be here in a couple hours to trim the tree.
So hard, with him leaving tomorrow.
Well, not for you.
What is that supposed to mean? I know about you and Emma's dad, and your erotic tongue kissing.
Oh, Jesus.
Now I'm never gonna want to kiss anyone with tongue, ever.
You ruined that.
Marah, I am so sorry.
- No, spare me.
Those are just words.
- That was You don't mean it.
Dad's leaving and you don't even care.
- It's complicated, sweetie.
It's - No, it's not.
It's simple.
If things were better here, he'd stay, but they're not, so he's leaving.
- Marah.
- No, just leave me alone.
Is that Kate dancing in The Nutcracker? - What a little cutie.
- Yep.
And there's Sean.
Do you really have to show that photo to everyone? Well, you were adorable and you loved to dance.
- He was really good too.
- Yeah, a regular Sugar Plum Fairy.
You're wearing tights too? Mmm.
Do you want some more eggnog, Cloud? Twist my arm, Marge.
Margie.
Whatever your name is, that is some high-quality nog right there.
Oh.
Oh, hey, I saw you in town yesterday.
I waved, but you didn't wave back.
You were with some guy.
It wasn't me.
I'm pretty sure it was you.
It was the same car.
- It's a common car.
- But yours has that dent.
Lots of cars have dents.
It - Oh! Fiddlesticks! - Oh, yeah! Now it's a party.
Hey, Mom.
Did you know that Kate's dad works for NASA? CONEX, actually.
It's a factory that made the moon rover.
Something that my dad helped build is still on the moon.
That's pretty cool.
Oh, you men.
Always trying to conquer the divine feminine.
Fly 200,000 miles to plant a fucking flag on the face of a goddess.
What's wrong with flags? Yeah, I love flags.
I used to collect them.
You know, space junk isn't all they build at CONEX.
What else do they build? Bombs that are dropped in villages in Vietnam.
How's that for peace on fucking Earth? Who wants a Christmas cookie? Weapons are what helps keep this country safe from our enemies.
Oh, you mean Buddhist rice farmers in Southeast Asia? If you don't like it, you can move to Southeast Asia.
Last time I checked, there was free speech, man.
You come into my house, which I pay for from the money I make at the factory.
You have the nerve to insult me? - Smelling like marijuana? - Just speaking truth.
Remember the doctor, your blood pressure.
Like you give a flying fuck about my blood pressure, Marjorie.
You know, marijuana is actually good for that.
I'm gonna get some air.
More eggnog.
Hey! - Is this for me? - Well Oh, my God! I love it! - Thank you.
- Yeah.
So, ready to head to this party? Oh, actually, um Hey, Kate? - Yeah, Mark? - Yeah.
Wow, you're even prettier than my cousin said.
It's nice to meet you.
So, should we head to the party? Let's do it to it.
I'll see you at the party, Johnny.
One sec.
KPOC, this is Kate.
Oh, my God.
Um, I'll be right there.
Are you okay? My dad had a heart attack.
Um, he's in the hospital.
Oh, shit.
That's intense.
I guess raincheck or Come on.
I'll take you.
Oh, cool.
Okay, I'll call you.
Great stuff, you and Brooks.
Those were some fireworks.
Yeah, because he kept interrupting me.
I don't like that guy.
You will not ambush me again with a guest I haven't approved or vetted.
Actually, I can and will book any guest I want, anytime I want.
Check your contract.
Try to get some rest.
And lay off the salt.
It's bad for your skin.
Goddammit! Oh, shit! Shit! Shit, shit, shit.
Is it that Bruce from church? That woman is clearly on drugs.
You have to choose, Margie.
You can't have both.
Okay.
- Dad? - Hey.
Um - Can I look through the telescope? - Yeah.
Get in there.
Come on.
Um Are you going to move out? No, honey.
I'm staying right here.
Are you gonna tell me I can't hang out with Tully anymore? No.
People shouldn't be punished for what their parents do.
Okay? Now, get inside.
You're going to freeze to death.
Okay.
Love you, Dad.
Are you okay? Could've told you bare-knuckle boxing a mirror is a losing game.
Thanks for coming.
Yeah, of course.
I know things are kind of fucked up with us right now.
And I know I said some stuff but I want you to know I'm sorry.
And I don't say that a lot, so it's kind of a big deal.
I'm sorry too.
I thought maybe we could start over.
What do you mean? I know we lost the baby and it hurt my heart, you know, to the point where I'm not sure I'm up for trying again.
I don't think I can go through that.
So, like, you definitely You don't wanna I don't know what I want.
I I don't I don't know if it's right for me to Maybe I shouldn't be a mother.
I don't know.
I just I just know I want to put the miscarriage behind me.
I want to start over with you.
Except I lost a baby too.
And you just pushed me away when I needed you the most.
And now you just want to put it all behind us.
We never even dealt with it in the first place.
I feel like like our whole relationship, all I do is just chase you.
That's why I think we need a clean slate.
I will be at the gazebo where we got married tomorrow at three.
We can start over.
Like a new beginning.
I can't believe I'm doing this.
I can not believe I'm doing this.
Oh, my God, I can't believe I'm doing this.
Okay.
Well, hey, there.
Care to come in for some hot nog? Uh, Kate, this is my mother.
Oh, my God! Shit! Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit! Shit! Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit.
Motherfucking shit! Hi! Hello, I'm Doreen.
How do you do? Doreen, it's so great to finally meet you.
Travis has told me so much about you.
And he's told me a lot about you.
Although, not quite this much.
Yeah, we were just, um And I know we had plans, but Mom stopped by Oh, yeah.
Come in.
Come on in.
No, I actually think we're going to go because we have a lot of Christmas shopping to do.
Sure, raincheck, then.
I'll wait in the car and give you two a moment.
Nice to finally meet you, Kate.
And don't worry, I didn't see anything.
- Really? - No.
I saw it all.
- My friends are gonna love this story.
- Bye, Mom.
Bye, Doreen.
It was so great to finally meet you.
Oh, I am so sorry.
- It's okay.
- It's not okay.
Your mom's gonna think I'm a lunatic, a naked lunatic.
She's a doctor.
She's seen it all before.
- I thought she was a law professor.
- She is.
I'm just trying to make you feel better.
And the phone messages that I left you earlier Don't worry about it.
Yeah, I wouldn't if our children hadn't listened to them.
- Yeah.
- It's bad.
- Yeah.
- Plus, I called you the wrong name.
No wonder you're running the other direction.
No, I'm not running.
Speed walking maybe.
I don't know what I'm doing.
Um I think maybe I'm having a nervous breakdown? Yeah, well, you got a lot going on.
It's okay to fall apart a little bit sometimes.
I don't deserve to have somebody be this nice to me.
Well, you do.
You really do, Kate.
But we don't have to rush our thing.
And you don't have to try so hard.
I like you.
- Okay.
- We can take things slow, we'll figure it out.
All right.
I'll, um - I'll call you? - Yeah.
Okay.
Bye.
You're gonna be okay, Kate.
- You're gonna be okay.
- Yeah.
And so will your dad.
There's a piece of him on the moon, you know.
He helped build the rover.
That might be the coolest thing I've heard all year.
Yeah, right.
I'm serious.
I used to be obsessed with the Apollo missions when I was a kid.
That's fucking cool.
Anyway, I know you've got to get back, so Actually, your mom made me promise to stay over since she's gonna be at the hospital.
She told me to stay in Sean's room so that you're not all alone.
Oh.
Okay.
Um, well, in that case, do you want a drink? I could really use a drink.
Yes.
My dad used to measure the levels with a ruler.
So then we would just water it down with apple juice.
I think he knew.
Classic.
To Bud.
To Bud.
So, uh, looks like he's going to be all right.
Doctor said it was mild.
Yeah, still, I mean, it's a heart attack.
I know.
It's awful.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
- I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
- No.
I just, I don't want to take advantage - of your state.
- Right.
- You're upset about your dad.
- No, of course.
Yeah.
Is that why you think that I kissed you? You were about to go on a date with another man, so Yeah, because I can't wait for you forever.
I mean, you already told me that you're not interested.
Wait.
Is that the message you got? It's what you said.
"I'm shit at relationships, Mularkey.
" "I'd only hurt you.
" Is that Is that my accent? You said you just want to be friends.
Because you said it was too late.
Well, it is.
You slept with Tully.
- I can't just forget that.
- I know.
I I I lost my chance with you.
And I missed out on the best thing I could have had.
And I'm always gonna kick myself for that.
That's why I don't want to make it worse.
I really care about our friendship.
Yeah.
Me too.
Anyway, um - Thanks, Johnny.
Um - Yeah.
I think I'm gonna go to bed.
What are you doing? Coming to see you.
What are you doing? I was going to see you.
I thought you didn't want to ruin our friendship? Yeah, but then I thought, "I've got other friends.
" You're such an asshole.
Plus, I'm in love with you.
What? I just dropped Johnny at the airport.
Come here, babe.
I think I'm still in love with him.
Duh.
You guys boned, didn't you? Um, yeah, we totally did.
And now he's gone.
He's really gone.
He'll be back.
Wait, I'm confused.
Is today Home Makeovers or At-Home Makeovers? Uh, both.
Tully.
Hey.
Hey, hey, hey.
I have got fantastic news.
The network flipped over you and Brooks.
They love your banter and your chemistry so much he's your new co-host.
Are you fucking kidding me? No, I'm not fucking kidding you.
That is a hard no.
This is my show.
No, actually, it's my show.
I own it, so you'll do as I say.
Yeah? Let's see you do it without me.
The Girlfriend Hour with Brooks Banack? I don't think so.
You're under contract.
And you're on in five minutes.
Go fix your hair.
Go fuck yourself.
I quit.
There's speed, there's grass, I think that's coke.
I don't know what half this stuff is, but you can have it for three thousand.
I'll throw in the bag for free.
Yeah, man.
What do you think? Police! Keep your hands up! Everyone! Hands where we can see them.
What the fuck? I didn't do anything.
You're under arrest.
- What about those guys? - They're with us.
Oh, bullshit! - Baby, it's gonna be okay.
- Move! - Just be gentle, dude! Just ease up! - Move! Let's go.
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against - Tully? - Kate? - Tully! What's going on? - Oh, my God! They're taking her away! It wasn't our drugs, we just needed the money.
Officers, anything we do to help here? No, we've got it under control.
- Where will Tully go? - We spoke to the girl's grandmother.
- She's gonna take her in.
- No.
I live here.
- She can stay with us.
Dad, please? - Oh, God.
- I wouldn't mind, it would be fun.
- Honey, no.
You said people shouldn't be punished for the things their parents do.
Katie, I know you care about her, but there's nothing we can do.
Need to let her go.
Nothing we can do.
Sweetheart, she needs to be with her family.
- I'm her family! No! - Okay, come on.
Come on.
Katie.
- We need to go now.
- No! - No! - Come on.
- No! - Come on.
- Let her go.
- I don't wanna go.
No! This is bullshit! - You can't do this! - No! - Shh.
It's okay.
- No! - No, please, let go of me! - It's okay.
Let go of me! Let go of me! No! Let go of me! - No, Dad, I need to go - Katie bear! No, Tully! - Katie bear! - No, Tully! Tully! He didn't come.
I know.
I'm so sorry.
It just sucks.
How did you I was just standing by, over there, just in case.
He didn't want me.
What do you say we get outta here? - Hey.
- Hey.
- What are you doing here? - I I came out, to Julia.
She kicked me out of the house.
Can I stay with you for a while? Of course.
Come here.
My God.
Well, 2003 was a shit year.
- Yep.
- Let's hope 2004 is better.
I will toast to that.
And I would like to drink a toast to my new producer Kathleen Scarlett Mularkey.
- What are you talking about? - You need a job and I need a producer.
You need a show first.
A mere technicality.
I've decided it's going to happen and I am prepared to offer you double what you are making now.
I am making nothing now.
Triple, then.
I'm totally serious.
I'm gonna come back.
Only better this time because you'll be working with me.
We'll be together.
Firefly Lane girls forever! Okay.
Happy New Year, crazy.
I love you.
I love you too.
I thought you left.
Why would I leave? Because no one wants you here.
Come on, Kate.
Don't you think you've punished me enough? When I said I could never forgive you for what you did, what'd you think that meant? This is ridiculous.
It's It's Bud's funeral.
You had a lot of nerve showing up here.
Leave, Tully.
Go home, now.
I don't ever want to see you again.
