Her crazy ass boyfriend is gone.
What do you mean "gone?" Just up and disappeared a few days ago.
He ran out on her? I mean, she doesn't know.
Just ghosted, huh? Poor girl is losing her mind trying to find him.
Ah, well, tell her to call me.
Nah, she's too embarrassed.
She's gonna need to file a missing person's.
So, what kinda stuff would y'all do to root him out? Um Track the cell, try family.
You know, he's been talking to somebody, you just gotta knock on the right doors.
Yeah, right.
I need the internet for my report.
Okay, I'm gonna need you to check all of that.
Please? What's it on? Where our garbage goes.
All right.
I'll get off.
No way.
Get out of town.
You go here? I get my hair done every Friday.
You're kidding me.
That is so crazy.
- What a small world.
- Yeah.
It really is.
While I have you, um, is everything okay with Leslie? Oh, why wouldn't it be? Well, he just hasn't showed up for work in a few days, so you know.
He hasn't mentioned being sick.
Oh, good, but you have talked to him then? Every single night before bed.
[laughs] You tell me any grandson who would do that.
There are not too many.
Yeah, the rest of the bunch, I could take or leave.
But Leslie's a true gentleman.
He is definitely something.
It's rare to find a boy his age so thoughtful.
You don't know where he is, do ya? Well, probably with his fiancée.
He is so sweet with her.
[gentle music on TV] They're all related? I'm out.
[music stops] [phone ringtone bleeping] [clears throat] Hi, Beetle.
Where are you? Mmm.
I can't say.
Why not? Well, I'm kind of on a special assignment.
What the hell, Leslie? Look, this is very high level stuff, okay? And I might've just jeopardized your life by telling you that much.
Well, you didn't even leave a note.
Well, I didn't think you'd care.
Yeah, well, I do, and the kids are worried, so I'm sorry.
You can't just come and go out of their lives like that, you know? I mean, they don't get it, so they miss you.

- Uh, she's gotta call the cops.
We gotta go.
Just tell them it was an accident.
It was.
Yeah, I mean he he ran behind the car.
He was kinda asking for it.
I mean, except, um Well, then I moved the body.
I mean, I didn't want the kids to see it, so I mean, nobody's gonna argue with that.
- Right? - Mm-mmm.
Where did you, um, put it? I didn't want it to smell Okay.
I mean, it's supposed to be so hot today, so - A real scorcher.
- Yeah.
And Jeff used to hunt, so we have, um, we have a meat freezer.
Well, that still makes sense.
Yeah, except he just got so bloated.
I think that's because, you know, all the gases that get trapped inside? So, then he then he wouldn't fit.
What do you mean? I mean there was just like, like, too much of him to You know, at first.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
You know those, um, those electric knives like you use at like, at Thanksgiving? [gasps] Mommy? We're hungry.
Okay, who wants waffles? That's a meat locker, huh? Dude, we should just leave.
Don't hold much meat.
What are you talking about? We should go, and the cops will do their job.
And she'll take the fall, and we'll be totally clean.
What are you even talking about? She murdered him, Beth.
We were about to do the same thing.
Yeah, but we didn't, and we sure as hell weren't gonna chop him up.
Small game maybe.
Like, real small.
Listen, we were the first call she made.
If she's going down, we are going down.
Like a pheasant.
Do you understand that she is like a literal mental patient, right? We made her call him.
Or a grouse.
Okay, so, what are we supposed to do with this then? Anyone? I don't know.
We get rid of it.
Where? Well, we wait until it's dark and then And then we'll figure it out.
[scoffs] Be easier to carry if he's all thawed out.
Oh, my God.
I am so sorry.
It's just been kind of a mess of a day.
What did I miss? They caught Kenny in the teachers' lounge.
Not the biggest crime in the world, so He he ate somebody's retirement cake.
So, we're here because Kenny had a slice of cake? He ate more than a slice.
He ate the entire cake.
Well, how many people was it for? Everyone who works here.
Look, in my experience, behavior like this is often a cry for help.
Is there anything unusual going on at home? We need to be more present, put the phone down once in a while.
It's not about the phone.
I heard a thing on NPR that said phone Maybe it has something to do with the fact that some psycho gang banger shot his dad, and now his shady ass mom's running around doing God knows what.
I mean, where where were you last night? Book club.
Book club.
All night long? Can we be at a point now where we just know what "book club" means? You're about to put bleach in with the colors.
You wanna do laundry? We will find someone who deals with this kinda thing.
We can't afford a shrink.
Okay, fine.
No phones at dinner.
[solemn music] The landfills import enough solid waste each year to fill over one million garbage trucks.
- Hey.
- If you lined those trucks up, they'd stretch from New York City to San Francisco and back again.
You okay? Long day.
All right.
Well, look alive or lose a finger.
Dirty diapers, plastic bottles, plastic bags, coffee cups, rubber-soled shoes, dead animals What is she doing in there? Her working on her report about landfills.
It'd take two hours just to walk from one side of it to the other.
That's almost thirty square miles of trash.
All dumped right here in Eastern Michigan.
At this rate What? Where'd you say this trash was? [acoustic music] Hey.
You're kidding me, right? How was work? Sadie's in the car.
What do you want? Is there any way you could take her for the night? So you can bone some other pregnant lady's husband? I have to take a little road trip.
Now? Yeah, well, a friend suddenly passed away, so Oh, I'm so sorry.
You'd be doing it for her, not me.
I love her.
I know.
I don't love you.
I know.
Hey, Sades.
[thumping, squelching] [thumping] Can we turn something on? With our thinly-shaved beef carpaccio.

I hope you're wearing some of that nice cologne we bought.
Well, I'm turning in.
I'm sure I'll hear from you tomorrow.
You be a good boy.
If you would just give me a quick ring when you get in, even if it's late.
It's the funniest thing, I just can't get to sleep.
[ragged breathing] [Hannah Georgas's "Walls"] It's too easy To give in these days It's too easy To blend into the grey When I build these walls I build them so high I build them so high It's too easy I'm sorry I ate the cake.
To walk away It's not your fault.
So you could leave me Hey.
How late did you work? I did something really bad.
What'd you do? [sniffles] I took a payday loan.
I used your check as collateral and forged your name.
Why? Insurance was taking forever, I had bills.
I don't know, I just walked in All right, all right.
It's okay.
It's no biggie.
We'll figure it out.
- Morning.
- Morning.
What's the worst thing you've ever done? What? Like, the worst.
Like, the all-time worst possible thing.
It's kinda early Come on, Sadie.
Um I cheated on an English test.
W how do you even do that? We had to write original poems, and I couldn't come up with anything good, so I just used Miley Cyrus.
What song? "Wrecking Ball.
" That's a great song.
Am I in trouble now? I mean, yeah, maybe.
But you asked.
All right.
We'll make a deal.
You're off the hook if you swear to cap it right there.
What do you mean? Promise me that you won't ever, ever do anything worse than that, okay? - Okay.
- No, Sadie, I mean it.
Look me in the eyes and promise me right now.
Can I go shower? I have school.
Go go get clean.

- Are you being careful? Always.
Did you go for a run? If by "run" you mean a sad old man shuffle, then yes.
Good for you.
Yeah, PT's starting to pay off.
I found a therapist.
I thought you said we couldn't afford one.
He's a grad student at Wayne State.
They need the hours, so he's cheap.
Nice, how soon can he start? I think this week.
I just want Kenny to feel safe again, you know? Me too.
Hey what do you think about Krav Maga? Huh? It's this badass Israeli like, fighting style.
My PT guy says it'll make him feel more in control.
Yeah, sure.
You okay? Yeah, I've just had had too much coffee.
Slow down, tiger.
I am going to go do abs.
