Good Trouble (2019) s03e01 Episode Script


1 CALLIE: Jerod, you're in my home.
You have to leave.
(CALLIE SCREAMING) I don't wanna press charges.
It's not a hospital.
It's another jail.
The tenants turned down our offer.
Some activist told them that we might build a mental health jail.
I think I need to move out.
Yeah, I think you do too.
Shame on you! I violated a restraining order.
WOMAN: What? They're taking me to trial.
- What about the deal? - They took it off the table.
EVAN: So these feelings, we just don't feel them anymore? We can't.
I have had had times where I have feelings for Evan.
You have feelings for Isabella? - RAJ: And I'm not sure I don't want to.
- We can't live together anymore.
And I'm not leaving my home.
DAVIA: You can't tell me that someone who wrote that song for their son was a bad father.
DENNIS: I thought maybe you could turn him into something beautiful.
Something I could look at without hurting so much.
I think it's perfect.
I love you, and I've been told that I can't trust my feeling, but I I think that's bullshit.
GAEL: You live here? CALLIE: Yeah.
Just moved in with my sister today.
Sort of.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) ("IN A SPIRAL" BY PHANTOGRAM PLAYING) I'm a name, on a fade in a spiral Imitate, elevate making heads roll I should've told you that Jamie bought your piece.
I'm sorry.
All's forgiven.
Run away to the shape in a spiral Imitate, elevate watching heads roll I can see the end is coming 'round I'm really sorry about all the things I said to you.
You weren't a mistake.
I'm assuming things with Jamie are Complicated.
Every day, every day in a spiral Every day, every day in a spiral Pa-pa-pa pa-pa-pa-pa-pa Pa-pa-pa pa-pa-pa-pa-pa Then we'll find our peace of mind You and me, bel ami Pa-pa-pa, pa-paaa Hey.
So, I was thinking we could go on our first official date tonight.
That could be fun.
("HANDS UP LIKE THIS" BY ZOA PLAYING) Wind me up and watch me go Hey, can you do me a huge favor? I don't want to see Isabella before I talk to Raj.
Can you grab my wide-leg black jeans? 'Cause I'm a bad bitch like that MARIANA: My green top.
Not the one with the snow leopard on it.
- The one with the snake skin pattern.
- Snake skin? Hit the lights don't kill my vibe Hands up like this And my cork heels.
We'll go all night Think I won't do it? Watch this Hey Think I won't do it? Hit the lights don't kill my vibe Oh! (GASPS) (CREAKING) (SIGHS) Hands up like this Wind me up and watch me go ISABELLA: Hey.
What are you doing? Oh, uh, just borrowing some clothes from Mariana.
Don't tell her.
You know me, I'm a snake skin girl.
I'm guessing she told you that Raj has feelings for me? Which is not my fault, but she's blaming me, and now she just wants to kick me out.
(SNIFFLES) I would never do anything to hurt her.
I swear.
You just You have to believe me.
(SOBBING) So there's a hearing tomorrow, just like a routine pretrial motion.
The BLM lawyer says it's nothing to be concerned about.
This is the same one that said the DA would back down if you didn't take the deal? Okay.
That was my decision, and they've got my back.
Who has their back though? No, I I'm asking because, unfortunately, the powers that be, they don't really like BLM.
And your association with them is the reason why they're cracking down so hard on you.
What I did, confronting Judge Wilson in his office, that had nothing to do with BLM.
Yeah, violating the restraining order did.
They never would have let me participate in that protest if I had told them about that.
This is happening because of my actions.
And still they've got their people fighting to get my charges dropped.
They're doing all of that for me.
Look, I'm just grateful they've got my back at all.
This shit is real, Malika.
I have a right to be worried about you.
I know, but I'm okay.
I'm canceling my trip.
No, you can't.
It's business.
- What if you need me? - If I do, I can call you.
But it's all good.
You have nothing to worry about.
("LOW" BY ROBYN SHERWELL PLAYING) (SIGHS) Mmm, mmm, mmm mmm, mmm, mmm Mmm, mmm, mmm mmm, mmm, mmm I have been so out of sorts in So long, so long, so long And I've been led here by you Follow, follow, follow Should've known done it before I know I should just let it go So, what if Isabella's confession wasn't about your boyfriend? What do you mean? (SNIFFLES) Mariana thinks that I led Raj on, so that he would fall for me, but I would never ever do that again.
Again? I, uh I slept with my last roommate's boyfriend.
But it was a terrible mistake, and I would never ever betray a friend like that again.
I swear.
So maybe the confession that Davia read at Trap Heals wasn't about Raj? Or maybe she sleeps with all of her roommates' boyfriends.
How can we trust anything that she says? I mean, don't you trust Raj? Having feelings for Isabella is one thing, but do you really think he'd cheat on you? (PHONE CHIMES) Everything all right? Mariana? Mariana? Wha What? Do you have anything to report? Uh, no.
Actually there's been a 20% surge in ACT-ivism downloads, largely due to our reach-out to Black Lives Matter and Dignity and Power Now.
And other activist organizations (INDISTINCT CONVERSATION) Oh, hello there.
Are you Teresa? Uh, no.
I'm Callie.
Ah! I had a Maltipoo named Callie.
Sweet pup.
Pissed all over my silk rugs.
Cost me a fortune.
Uh, I can find someone to help you with your case.
Oh, I'm not a client.
I'm the new tenant.
Oh, um Well, I'm sure Teresa will be You know, the colors are a bit drab.
I think we're gonna need to repaint.
I'll get swatches.
What about the furniture? It looks sad, but should we ask for anything? KATHLEEN: Uh Probably not.
We're moving? Into the new Legal Aid building downtown.
Budgetary issue.
Which means we have to do the packing.
What's her story? Oh, well, that's Kathleen Gale.
She's a very successful criminal defense attorney who split from her big firm and is now opening a small non-profit defense shop here, along with a few of her junior associates.
You got all that off her Wikipedia page? No.
I got it from the cute one with the glasses and the hair, along with his phone number.
- Callie, can I have a minute? - Yeah.
Close the door, please.
- So we're moving? - Yeah.
Sorry for the no notice.
We haven't had a chance to talk since you took the bar exam.
- How'd you do? - Good, I think.
I haven't gotten my results back yet, so I'm sure you passed.
Have you heard? The South Solano tenants turned down the vouchers.
They're gonna fight to stay in their homes.
Yes, I heard that.
Someone tipped off the community activists.
How are things at home? Uh, I moved back in with my sister.
Well, I'd like you to rejoin the case.
As co-counsel.
Co-counsel? Yeah, you brought the case in.
I could really use your help.
Assuming there's no longer a personal conflict of interest.
Uh, to be honest, I'm not completely sure.
Well, let me know when you are.
Yeah, I will.
Thank you.
(PHONE CHIMES) - Hello? - MAN: (OVER PHONE) Is this Callie Adams-Foster? Yes.
Who's this? MAN: I'm calling from the Assistant District Attorney's office.
We'd like to speak with you regarding the recent breaking and entering incident that occurred in your apartment involving Jerod Murphy Yeah, I told the police I don't want to press charges.
MAN: Not as the complainant, as the witness.
Someone else is pressing charges.
Who? (ELEVATOR DOOR DINGS) Jamie! (SIGHS) Is it true? You're pressing charges against Jerod? Yes, I'm pressing charges.
We agreed not to.
No, no, no.
We didn't agree to anything.
So, what is this? Is this you getting back at me? Callie, if that was the case, I could just press charges against you for stealing privileged documents from my briefcase.
So why are you doing this then? Jerod moved back here and started acting erratically again.
He could've wandered into somebody else's apartment and hurt someone or got himself shot by some idiot with a gun.
I was doing it to protect him.
Oh, you really think he's safer in jail? Yes, I do.
And as much as I would love to replay this track from our Greatest Fights album, I have a meeting to get to.
- This is so good.
- Hmm.
I still can't believe you've never had raspados.
Whoever thought of combining a snow cone with fruit and sweet milk is a genius.
It's the simple things in life, you know? (MALIKA CHUCKLES) So, how long have you been interning with DPN? About five, six months.
You? A few weeks.
And is this what interns do when they're supposed to be out running errands? It wasn't our fault the printers weren't ready.
And it really takes two of us to pick up some posters? Imani thought maybe you could stand to get out of the office, you know? Get your mind off things.
I mean, why is everyone so worried about me? I'm fine.
Okay, good.
Let's keep it that way.
And Wanna go first? - Seriously? - Mm-hmm.
I mean, this was my jam as a kid.
So, you're in big trouble.
Oh, I already knew I was in big trouble from the day I met you.
- Is that so? - Yeah.
What you got? Okay.
(CLEARS THROAT) (DYONTE COUNTING) - MALIKA: Woo! - DYONTE: Mmm! - That heel - Oh! Uh, smooth.
Thank you very much.
All right.
I got you.
(LAUGHS) Okay.
Now you know what you gotta do.
- Oh.
- Oh.
(GRUNTS) Okay, nice recovery.
Are you hurt? - Only my pride.
- Oh, I'm sorry.
- Here, have more of this.
- Let me have some of this.
- I want to try yours.
- Um, no.
- Why? - 'Cause I don't want your cooties.
Come on.
Look, I don't know what Mariana told everyone, but it's not my fault if Raj has feelings for me.
Is it your fault you slept with him? Mariana knows, Isabella.
And considering what you've done, I don't think you have the right to refuse to move out.
Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh (PHONE CHIMES) Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh (COMPUTER CHIMES) And it all comes down to this Ay-yay-yay-yay-yay, yay-yah ay-yah, ay-yay-yah Ay-yay-yay-yay-yay yay-yah And it all comes down to this Ay-yay-yay-yay-yay, yay-yah ay-yah, ay-yay-yah Ay-yay-yay-yay-yay yay-yah And it all comes down to this (SLURPING) Hey! These are lit! Check it out.
Ooh! Gotta get these up all over town.
- - Hey! Where you going? What's wrong? Malika! Wait.
Malika! Malika, wait.
(BREATHING HEAVILY) This is all getting too real.
Okay? - I'm scared.
- Okay.
Just Just breathe.
It's okay.
It's okay to be scared.
Okay? This shit is scary, but you have a team.
But those prosecutors have all the power.
Not more power than the people.
Not when we stand together and organize.
Can you promise me I'm not going to jail? I can promise we all will do everything in our power to fight for you and never give up.
You're not alone.
We got your back.
Look at me, look at me, look at me.
We got you.
- (BUZZER BUZZES) - (DOOR UNLOCKS) (INDISTINCT CONVERSATION) Jerod, what happened to you? Jerod, do you remember me? My name is Callie.
You're the nice lady who always buys me coffee.
(JEROD CHUCKLES) Uh Can you Can you tell me how you got all these bruises on your face? GUARD: Walker, you got two minutes.
The guards.
They did this to you? Yeah.
They wouldn't give me my meds, so I said I'm not gonna leave my cell.
Because they're supposed to give them to me every day.
That's what they're supposed to do.
That's what my lawyer said.
Every day, they're supposed to give me my meds.
That's what they're supposed to do.
So? They sprayed some stuff in my eyes, and then one of them just started hitting me.
I I couldn't see, so I just started swinging my arms so that they would get off of me.
And did you hit the guard? I didn't mean to.
It (SIGHS) I was just trying to get him off of me.
And And they're saying that I hit him first, but I didn't.
I swear.
No, I believe you, Jerod.
Um, have you told your lawyer? Um, he doesn't care about me.
He just wants me to stay in here, and I don't want to stay here.
I just want to go home.
I know, Jerod.
And I'm I'm really sorry this happened to you.
Do you mind if I take some pictures? Just here Just your arm, yeah.
- Okay.
- You get it? Okay.
Can you be my lawyer? I can't.
I'm sorry, I I haven't passed the bar yet.
- I'm sorry I went into your apartment.
- No.
That's okay.
How am I falling so fast? Thoughts of you caught in the past (KNOCK ON DOOR) It's open.
Oh, hey.
Hey, have you seen Dennis? It's beautiful.
What did Dennis say when he saw it? (SIGHS) He was you know, appreciative but I could tell that it was still hard.
I just hope I didn't make it worse, you know, covering up Jacob? No, he asked you to do it.
Yeah, I know.
So, I I left him alone.
And anyways, I came down to check up on him and he wasn't here.
I tried calling, but I haven't heard back.
I figured you might have seen him, but you're obviously going out.
You look nice.
You have a hot date? Um no.
But don't worry about it.
I'm sure he's fine.
Dennis, where are you? I'm worried.
Gael told me about Jacob's picture.
Please call me back and let me know that you're okay.
CALLIE: All of his wounds are defensive.
KATHLEEN: It is terrible how they treat mentally ill people in jail.
Do you smoke weed? - What? - I was going to smoke a joint.
You care to join me? Oh, um, no, not not really.
Um, I get paranoid.
So Do you drink? 'Cause I've got a 20-year-old bottle of scotch around here somewhere.
CALLIE: I Uh, just socially.
I'm good.
KATHLEEN: How do you wind down at the end of the day? I don't, I guess.
Well, that's gonna catch up with you.
Do you mind? No.
So what do you think? Uh, it's a loser case.
Juries are always going to believe the word of a guard over an inmate.
Okay, what about suing for excessive force? That might scare them into dropping the charges.
No, they'll argue that the injuries are minor.
What about Hudson v.
McMillian? Supreme Court ruled that excessive use of physical force could constitute cruel and unusual punishment even if an inmate does not suffer serious injury.
You used that ruling when you won Jackson v.
- She does her homework.
- Mm-hmm.
How'd you get in to see your friend? I said I was his lawyer.
Still, it takes a few days to see a client.
I may have also said that I could call some organizers I know, get a news crew down there.
And willing to stretch the truth.
So why don't you just represent him yourself? I can't.
We only try civil cases at Legal Aid.
Aren't you opening this firm to help people like Jerod? The plan wasn't to take on unwinnable cases.
Look, this may be a loser case, but it is an important one.
And like you said, it's terrible how they treat mentally ill people in prison.
And if Jerod stays in jail, who knows what else will happen to him? You know what I like about you? You're idealistic and yet willing to get your hands dirty.
I'll do it.
On one condition.
All right.
Let's get started.
All right, everybody.
We know each other, right? Davia, right? Yes.
I'm the one who steals the creamers.
(PEOPLE CHUCKLING) Sorry about that.
Hmm, you're fine.
(CLEARS THROAT) Okay, how we all feeling tonight? Are you expecting Dennis? Are you? No, we haven't seen him in a while.
Oh, right.
Is everything okay? Um No.
No, not really.
She didn't even leave a note, and she hasn't answered any of my texts.
She had sex with your boyfriend.
What kind of note do you leave after that? Yeah, well, Raj has sent me a million text messages swearing that they didn't.
You believe him? I kinda don't want to.
Why? Okay, if I tell you something, will you promise not to judge me? Okay, when have I ever Yes, I promise.
So, after Raj told me that he had feelings for Isabella and then Davia told me that she read Isabella's confession that she had sex with Raj, I went back to Speckulate, and I hooked up with Evan.
You're judging me.
I knew it! No.
I'm not.
I get it.
I do.
I mean You ran into someone else's arms when you were hurt and confused.
This would be so much easier if Raj had cheated on me first.
That way, I wouldn't feel like such a piece of shit.
What do I do? Well, if you love Raj, you should tell him the truth, try to work it out.
Unless you don't want to work it out.
I don't know what I want.
I do love Raj, but I also have feelings for Evan.
And how can I be in a relationship with my boss? I mean, it's not ideal, but it's not impossible.
What about you and Jamie? Hmm.
I, uh, saw him earlier today.
So Is it really over? Jamie, wait.
You never answered my text.
Callie, what else is there to talk about? You made your choice.
It wasn't personal.
We lost the Anwei account, which means I'm probably gonna lose my job.
Why? It wasn't your fault.
So, someone who had access to privileged information tipped off the activists on a case being brought by Legal Aid, where my live-in girlfriend works.
You don't have to go digging through someone's briefcase to put that one together.
Yeah, well, they can't prove that it came from me.
It doesn't matter.
Someone's head has to roll.
Whether you meant it or not, you ruined me, Callie.
How is that not personal? I'm sorry.
It's too late.
Like I said, you made your choice and there's nothing more to talk about.
Yeah, it's over.
I'm so sorry.
MALIKA (ON PHONE): How was your flight? It was good.
How was your day? It was good.
How do you feel about your hearing tomorrow? Okay.
Just tired.
Well, get some good sleep then.
Oh, I will, without your tall ass taking up the whole bed.
Maybe it's time I got a bigger bed.
Or maybe it's time we got a bigger place.
- Get out! - What'd you mean? I mean, you're not serious.
I'm not playin'.
I'm not.
We really doin' this over the phone? All right, all right, all right, all right.
- MALIKA: Goodbye.
- Love you.
I love you.
Mariana, I didn't have sex with Isabella.
I swear.
I know.
("LOVABLE" BY BLAUE BLUME PLAYING) I'm sorry that I've been avoiding you.
I just needed time to think.
You're my boss, and every way that I look at it, dating you is just a bad idea.
I know you wouldn't cheat on me.
But I don't know that you didn't want to.
And these feelings that we have for other people make me feel like I don't know, like, we're questioning whether we really do want to be together.
As long as we have those questions I don't think that we should be.
If I'm lovable I don't know what I'm inside It doesn't feel right this face were never mine But I do know that these feelings aren't just gonna go away.
So maybe there's a way to turn a bad idea into a good one? Sometimes the worst ideas can help lead you to the best ones.
Like soap.
It was very controversial in ancient Babylonia.
Washing in general was frowned upon Okay, okay.
But no one can know.
I really want to kiss you right now.
I really want you to kiss me right now.
Okay, well, just, uh, imagine I am.
DENNIS: Sorry I worried you.
Where are you? I'm in Malibu Canyon.
Staying at a friend's who's out of the country.
What happened? Why did you take off? DENNIS: I just After we woke up, I went down to my loft, and Gael was there, and he just finished Jacob's mural and I guess I just wasn't prepared to see him gone.
I thought it would be a relief but I felt like I just erased him, like I was just forgetting him.
And I don't Like I don't I don't know Have the right to be happy? SUSAN: Grief is not predictable.
We think we're feeling better, that we're getting past it even, and then something triggers a wave of pain that completely overwhelms us.
I know that you told him that we shouldn't get involved, that he can't trust his feelings.
So, maybe he confused needing me with loving me.
Maybe that's what he realized in the morning, and he freaked out.
I I guess this is my fault.
SUSAN: Davia you can't fix Dennis.
This is no one's fault.
And I encourage you to be as kind and empathetic towards yourself as you've been toward Dennis.
Okay? Yeah.
DENNIS: I don't know if I can ever truly be happy again.
Are you gonna hurt yourself? No.
No, I promise you I'm not gonna hurt myself.
I can't come back to the Coterie right now, Davia.
I need time.
I need to be alone.
I think I've been trying to find a way out of this, when I need to find a way through it.
You know? I I can't be the man that you deserve to love you, until I can do that.
Uh, do what you gotta do.
Just promise me you won't disappear, please.
Let me know how you're doing.
I will.
Your Honor, Judge Wilson has declined to press charges.
This invalidates the restraining order that is the sole basis for the prosecution's case.
Accordingly, the defense moves to dismiss the criminal complaint against Ms.
Your Honor, a valid restraining order was in effect when Ms.
Williams violated it.
We don't need the victim to file charges or even testify in order to prosecute.
- Your Honor - The defense's motion to dismiss is denied.
Is there anything else? Yes.
On account of Ms.
Williams' association with Black Lives Matter and the number of international chapters, the people have come to consider Ms.
Williams a flight risk and we ask that bail be revoked and she be taken into custody today to await trial.
(WHISPERING): They can't do that.
That's crazy.
You've got mail.
(MARIANA CHUCKLES) Took everything in me not to open it myself.
Actually, that's a that's a good idea.
I can't.
That's lot of pressure.
And the winner is The newest member of the State Bar of California, - Ms.
Callie Adams-Foster! - Wait, wait.
Seriously I passed? Yes, you passed! You passed! And I knew it.
- She passed! - Yay! - Congratulations! - Congrats! CALLIE: Oh, my God! MARIANA: I made them hide just in case.
DAVIA: We need refills! Go with the bubbly fills.
Sorry, we started drinking already.
It's fine.
- GAEL: Hook it up! - Thank you, guys.
ALICE: This is the fancy stuff.
To Callie, my brilliant and beautiful sister.
- Congratulations! - Thank you! - Congrats, Callie.
- ALL: Cheers! Oh, um, and I guess we have something else to toast.
What? Okay.
I'll do it.
On one condition.
You quit Legal Aid and come work for me.
CALLIE: Uh, I have a new job.
I'm gonna be working for this small non-profit criminal defense firm, run by this kind of well-known attorney, Kathleen Gale.
Wow! So you're gonna be like Elle Woods? (IMITATES ELLE WOODS): What? Like it's hard? - That's funny.
- Nice.
Well, to Callie, who better to have defending you? ALICE: Preach.
When you said you totally understand running into someone else's arms did you with Gael? No.
Of course not.
You okay? Yeah.
Where's Dennis? He went out of town.
Staying with a friend.
Oh, wait! We're also celebrating Callie moving back into our loft.
- CALLIE: Yes.
- MARIANA: Yay! Wait, what about Isabella? Oh, uh She moved out.
I got this mescal in Oaxaca, and I've been saving it for a special occasion.
And what's the occasion? I'm lonely.
I don't think this is a good idea.
I'm lonely.
You're lonely.
We're both single.
What do we have to lose? Well, that was sudden.
Did she say why? Oh, uh No.
I just came home, she was gone.
She didn't leave a note, and she's not responding to any of my texts.
I hope she's okay.
She's a survivor.
I wouldn't worry about that one.
You know what I just realized? We haven't had a family dinner in a while.
You up to keep the party going? - Yeah.
- I am.
- Let's do it.
- Wanna cook? ALL: No.
Uh, what about that vegan place that Malika loves? - Hmm, yeah.
- ALICE: Oooh.
Where is Malika? JUSTINE: Your Honor, the prosecution's request is outrageous.
This whole case is an abuse of power motivated by powerful elected officials determined to criminalize Black protest.
Counselor, that's enough.
I'm not going to revoke bail.
However, considering Ms.
Williams is a member of an organization with international reach, I am going to raise bail to $250,000.
And until which time that bail can be paid, I am remanding Ms.
Williams into custody.
When they ring the bell Bailiff Tell you it's over You're out of time but you didn't know it You didn't know it Clock strikes 12 the curtains' closing DYONTE: This is Capoeira.
It was brought to Brazil by enslaved people from West Africa.
It's not only about self-defense but about cultural identity.
Yeah, yeah INSTRUCTOR: There are two main objectives in Capoeira.
One is your ginga, the ability to stay in constant movement so that you can make yourself into a very difficult target.
The next is malícia, the ability to fake out your opponent, opening them up to the attack, or the counter-attack.
We'll fight, we'll fight we'll fight We will make it through DYONTE: I wanted to share this with you before court today because this practice helps me feel strong and resilient and prepared for any surprise attack, knowing that I can defend myself, physically and spiritually, against any form of oppression or harm.
And I thought it might give you the same.
It's okay.
I got this.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh I'm here right now with you I'll hold your hand and fight with you
