Good Trouble (2019) s03e17 Episode Script


1 So, um, you guys are hiring? I don't mind taking a demotion if it means that I can work with people that I believe in.
Doesn't everyone deserve a second chance? I'm Angelica.
Just started here as a waiter.
I got you a rose.
If Jazmin is no longer your child because she's trans, then I guess you have no children at all.
- Because I'm bisexual.
- I'll leave if I'm not welcome.
- Of course, you're welcome.
- I miss my son.
Maybe you can learn to love your daughter.
My parents actually just cut me off.
They didn't want me to have the baby.
I don't eat in front of my mother.
- You should be yourself.
- I was 90 pounds.
I had to go into a hospital to get fed with a tube.
Did you see the fight between Tommy and Zack? - I've watched the video.
- You act like I don't know.
I trusted you! If this video gets in, we lose all credibility and probably the case.
What is it? Is that from Jamie? Look, can we talk? Do you get a queer vibe from her? What if they never forgive me? A wedding and a baby! Oh, Dios mío, how blessed are we? You don't have to pick up lunch every day.
Oh, it's no problem, really.
Hey! How do you know Zelda Grant? Oat milk girl? Oh, uh, here, you just you have to pull this lever.
Oh! Thank you.
I cannot function without my 4:00 caffeine boost.
Ugh, I hear you.
Usually, I just press manual for like 20 seconds or sing a chorus of "Love on Top" and then, boom, it's done.
I'm Zelda, and I cannot hit those key changes.
Cute shoes, by the way.
I was gonna say the same to you! Ooh, that stuff any good? I'm obsessed.
With oat milk now.
It is life-changing.
You know what else would be life-changing? - A meeting with Zelda.
- She's a brand influencer.
With like four million followers.
One of her clients is this all-natural skin care line, Contend.
It would be perfect for Bulk Beauty.
We've just been sort of afraid to approach her.
But since you know her.
Oh, I don't know her, know her.
But I'll see what I can do.
- Great! - Awesome.
Jorge made empanadas.
Thought I'd grab you all some before they disappeared.
Oh, thank you! This is my friend Tanya.
I'm using her marketing expertise for my campaign.
Hi, nice to meet you.
- You too! - I'll let you guys do your thing.
- Okay.
Thank you.
- See you later.
So do you get a queer vibe from her? Do you get a queer vibe? I don't know.
I mean, she asked me to go on a hike, but I just kind of wonder if it's a date.
What if it was? Would you be open to that? I mean, I've never dated a woman, but I guess I wouldn't be closed to it if the chemistry was there.
Is it? I don't know, maybe.
So, um, the reason I wanted to talk to you guys is because, um I'm going to be a father.
We didn't even know you had a girlfriend! I knew this bisexual thing was a phase.
I'm still bisexual and she's not my girlfriend.
Why isn't she your girlfriend? Because we don't feel that way about each other.
You felt that way at least once.
Gael, you're bringing a child into this world.
The honorable thing to do is to marry her.
Dad, we're not in the 1950s.
People raise kids without being married all the time.
Not in this family, they don't.
Look, if you can't respect my choices, then you don't have to be a part of this baby's life.
Children need two parents.
And she'll have two parents.
She? You're having a girl? A female child.
We don't want to gender the baby.
It wasn't my idea, but I think it's very enlightened.
You're lucky you had your kids in the dark ages.
Congratulations, mijito.
I'm thrilled to be a great grandfather.
Thank you, abuelo.
Do we at least get to meet the mother of our grandchild? You know, I trusted you.
- No, no, no, I didn't touch her.
- You know, I, I trusted you.
I trusted you! If the jury gets to see this video, we're totally screwed, and not because you had a real fight with Zack the night he died, but because you lied to us and we were caught with our pants down.
I'm sorry.
The police were just jumping to conclusions.
I was afraid to tell the truth.
You know, I can work with the truth.
It's the lies that come back to bite you in the ass.
- What was the argument about? - Katie.
We were supposed to go to a movie that night.
Then Zack texted about the party and I wanted to go.
But Katie was mad and when she got there, she had too much to drink and she started flirting with Zack - to piss me off.
- Looks like it worked.
What else haven't you told us? Nothing.
I can't defend you if you aren't completely honest with me.
There's nothing else, I swear.
Can you keep the video out? I honestly don't know.
What's this? "Welcome to the FashionSpoke Family, Ms.
Davia Moss! "FashionSpoke is a subscription-based online personal stylist where you can click and ship your favorite designer brands.
" "If you love any of the pieces, it would be amazing "if you could wear and share.
XO, your personal FashionSpoke stylist.
" Wow, that would be perfect for some "WandaVision" cosplay I have planned.
Well, might be your lucky day.
There's no way this is going to fit me.
So close.
- Hi.
- Hey.
How'd it go with your parents? Um, not terrible.
They had their questions and opinions.
They want us to get married.
Oh, okay! I think your girlfriend might have something to say about that, though.
I didn't tell them about Callie.
I figured one life-altering info drop at a time.
That is understandable.
They do want to meet you though.
Okay, and how do you feel about that? I feel like they're not great at respecting boundaries.
I mean, you know Cuban families, everyone's in everyone's business and no one's pulling any punches.
At least they care.
Have you heard from your folks? I sent them a copy of the ultrasound and they didn't respond.
I'm sorry, that's just so screwed up.
I mean, maybe when the baby's born, they'll come around, but My parent's love has always been conditional, so maybe it's best they're not in my baby's life or mine.
Anyways, I completely understand if you don't want me to meet your parents.
No, no, no, I definitely do.
I just Want me to respect your boundaries with them.
If that's okay to ask.
No, of course it is! They're your parents, not mine.
And my job is to have your back.
- Hey! - Hey.
Ugh, seriously? Someone used up all the oat milk and then put the empty carton back? Who does this? Ugh! There is a certain place in Hell for people like that.
Right? Ugh, I'm such a wimp.
I can't do straight coffee.
Actually, I brought some oat milk from home.
I'm happy to share.
Hey, guys, this is Zelda.
She's coming by to borrow some oat milk.
So what's BB? Uh, Bulk Bulk Beauty.
It It is, yeah.
Uh, Bulk Beauty.
We're a clean beauty brand.
I mean, not a brand.
Bulk Beauty is an app where you can find all of your favorite sustainable beauty products in a one-stop shop.
Our app tracks how quickly you use each of your products so it will automatically reorder your refill at a personalized speed to minimize waste, all from cruelty-free vegan, zero waste brands, and compostable and recycled packaging.
Such a sick idea.
What kind of brand partners are you guys working with? Uh, you know, we just got the seed money, but we're in conversations with Ilia, Milk, Glow Recipe, to name a few.
Are you familiar with Contend Skincare? You know, we might've heard of them.
Well, I'm a brand influencer for them, and I swear by their products.
They're really starting to turn to the clean beauty space.
I think they'd be stoked about what you guys are doing.
Can I make an intro? Sure.
That would be great.
Okay, I'll set it up.
And thank you for the top off.
Oh, my God! Oh, my God! - Landing Contend would be major.
- I know! I'm already stalking their social for deck inspo.
But we've got to play it cool, not too thirsty.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Let's get to work on this pitch.
Oh, thanks, Mariana.
Oh, yeah, thanks! Of course.
Um, if you need any help with the Contend pitch Um, I think we got it.
But we do need that code for the analytics.
On it.
That's crazy.
Well, I tried to find every precedent I could to get the video dismissed, but I don't see how we sway the judge when it's clear that Tommy lied.
I know you're invested in Tommy being innocent, but you are going to have to fight just as hard for him, even if you think he might be guilty.
No, I know that.
That's why I'm still here.
Sit down.
Most of the people you represent as a defense attorney are going to be guilty of something.
So what if Tommy did kill Zack? Don't the parents deserve some sort of justice? Hey, that is not our concern.
How could that not be our concern? Because our job is to make sure that nobody goes to prison without due process.
I admire that you want to believe in the people you care about, but everyone is going to disappoint you at some point.
Good people do bad things sometimes.
It doesn't make them irredeemable.
And hopefully if this video does get in we will make the jury see that just because Tommy lied about the fight, it doesn't make him a murderer.
Well, I probably got the girls our first brand today, and they barely thanked me.
I feel like they'll never give me a seat at the table.
I mean, literally, there's only three chairs.
You've got to be patient.
What if they never forgive me? Look, you're a good person who made some mistakes.
Just be patient.
Redeem yourself.
They'll see that.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
- How was your day? - Uh, not great.
What's this? I don't know.
It was in the mailbox.
What is it? It's a copy of an arrest record for Cristian Matthews, the witness that blindsided us with the video of the fight.
It's for the sale of drugs and it looks like the record's been expunged.
Oh, snap.
They fit! What? Oh.
I guess I dropped a size.
So, trying out some new menu items, and I'm thinking all-day breakfast for the food truck.
Tell me what you think.
Oh, sorry.
I already ate.
I'll try it.
Though I have to warn you, I had my adenoids out so I can only taste sour, bitter, and pungent.
Not exactly going for pungent eggs.
Thank you.
So do you not want me to try them? I told you to wear hiking boots! Wow, I really didn't peg you as an "I told you so" person.
And I didn't peg you as someone lacking common sense.
I have climbed mountains in these Chucks.
Metaphorical ones, but still.
Sorry, it's about my campaign.
Well I should warn you reception gets pretty spotty up here.
Which is one of the reasons I thought it might be good for you.
So you had an ulterior motive? I'm just saying, we're in the middle of all this beauty.
Why would you want to be on your phone? It's hard to unplug.
It just seems like there's always a crisis or something to be done - or someone who needs help.
- Mm-hmm.
Yeah, I get it.
Does it always have to be you, though? Aren't there other people on call? It might also be a control thing.
Just a little.
Ah! What would happen if you turned your phone off? For just a couple hours.
I don't know.
Let's see.
- Come on.
- Whoo! All right, after taking the matter of the video under consideration, I'm ready to rule.
Uh, Your Honor, if I may.
New information has come to light and we believe the prosecution cut a deal with Cristian Matthews to keep the video a secret until he was on the stand.
Objection! Who sent it to you? Well, it had to have been someone at the DA's office.
I mean, they're the only ones that would have access to an arrest record that was expunged.
What if it was Jamie? Or someone who knew about the deal who knew it wasn't right.
Well, if it was just anyone, why would they send it to you? They could have sent it to the office.
It had to be Jamie.
And in exchange for keeping the existence of this video a secret, they offered to expunge the record of his arrest for the sale of drugs.
- This is a baseless accusation - No, this kind of back alley dealing is the very definition of an unfair surprise.
I had no prior knowledge of that video.
Then why don't you take the stand and swear to that, Marc? - Okay, this is ridiculous.
- Order, please.
That's a very serious charge, Miss Gale.
I'm going to need more than your word on the matter.
Do you have any proof? The information came anonymously, Your Honor.
We'd be happy to make the interview notes available for Cristian.
Okay, Your Honor, any lawyer worth his salt would know not to make a written record of that kind of deal.
Your Honor, if I may address the court.
What are you doing? So are you like seeing someone or ? Not at the moment.
What about you? Oh, uh, I'm dating that guy from the bar the other night, Dyonte.
- He's cute.
- Yeah, he is.
It's kind of new.
He's my first relationship since I came out as poly.
For someone as busy as you are, how do you juggle more than one relationship? Oh, I'm not at the moment.
And Tanya, who you met, is Dyonte's primary partner.
So, I guess it's complicated and this is way too much information right now.
It's okay.
I'm curious about you.
And why is that? I don't know.
I guess I find you intriguing.
Well, the feeling is mutual.
Hey! I missed you at lunch today.
Yeah, sorry, I had a bunch of errands to run.
Got it.
Oh, well, I just checking in.
Hey, maybe we should try that new Mexican place tomorrow.
Uh, you know, I actually have a doctor's appointment, so.
Oh, okay, well, I'll just see you at school.
Thanks for calling.
Whew! Coffee in the afternoon? I have a ton of papers to grade tonight, so.
If you just lost 30 pounds, you could get any man you want.
Mwah! Mmm.
You okay? Yeah.
I'm fine.
I can make your favorite.
Tuna melt, you hungry? Um, no, thank you.
I, uh, had a big lunch.
You think I don't wish that she could just see me? Not how I look or what I eat? She's the most insecure, self-loathing person I've ever known.
And she's projected that on me my whole life.
The defense's accusation of deal-making borderlines on slander.
It is a desperate low blow.
If Miss Gale and her team had properly done their due diligence, they would have discovered the video themselves.
It's not the prosecution's job to do that for them.
If Miss Gale can offer any proof besides anonymous allegations, you have no choice but to allow the video into evidence.
There is only one way to settle this, Your Honor.
We invite Cristian Matthews back into court and ask him if he made a deal or not.
Your Honor, the prosecution doesn't want to delay these proceedings any longer.
The video is duplicative of the witness testimony about the fight.
And in the interest of expediency, we agree to withdraw the video and just get on with the trial.
- Very well, Mr.
- Yes! But let me be clear.
I will not indulge any dirty tricks in this proceeding.
Consider yourself warned.
Dinner will be done very soon.
La ropa vieja always takes longer than I remember.
Do you need help, Mami? I can help you.
No, mija, siéntate.
I'm so glad you brought Spencer.
So nice to finally meet you.
Thank you.
I feel the same.
And thank you for the rum.
It's excellent.
I'm glad you like it.
So your family's from Argentina? Yeah, I'm third generation, so we didn't really keep up with many traditions.
How are your parents feeling about everything? Um, they're not supportive.
I'm sure they're just concerned, you know, about your situation.
They're not supportive of me having the baby at all.
I'm so sorry.
So, Spencer, what do you do for a living? Oh, I own an engineering business.
We design AC and heating ducts for corporate buildings.
It's, it's really not that interesting.
Sounds interesting to me.
Why did you spam my Instagram with likes on ancient photos? I saw your new post and it reminded me of the day that we did that photo shoot.
Okay, Dennis, look, I know what you're doing.
I've lost some weight.
So what? I just want to make sure that you're not I'm not relapsing and I'm not even trying to lose weight.
I've just been under a lot of stress lately with school and with you up and leaving for weeks and then suddenly coming back.
It's been a lot to deal with.
So I haven't been that hungry lately.
I'm fine.
It's not like I'm wasting away.
I'm sorry that I've caused you so much stress.
Okay, well, then don't comment on my appearance like you're implying that there's something wrong with me.
I don't need any help, especially not from you.
Thank you for asking me to hike with you.
I really needed this.
You're welcome.
I'm glad you came.
So, um, what are you doing later? Do you want to come to my place for tea or I could maybe make us something to eat? Sure.
That sounds nice.
So your boss backed down pretty quick.
Still think you're on the right side? I still think your client did it, especially after seeing that video.
You know, I thought for a minute that you'd had a crisis of conscience.
What do you mean? Well you have your own tells.
- Oh, yeah? - Mm-hmm.
Like, whenever you're unsure about something, like right now, you kind of squint and lift up your chin.
Well, what is the verdict? Do you think Jamie was the one who slipped the arrest record to you? I did and then I didn't, and now I'm not sure.
That's interesting.
He's still one of those people you want to believe in.
Guess that means you still care about him.
This is Rowena, brand manager - for Contend Beauty Products.
- Hi, I'm Claire.
- Gina.
- Rachel.
Thank you for meeting with us.
Thank you.
Zelda told me about your Bulk Beauty app, and it sounds like an exciting proposition.
Why don't we all have a seat? Mariana, aren't you joining us? Um, I'm not a partner.
So I'm fine right here.
Why don't we start with our deck.
You got drunk at the Hollywood Bowl and barfed on my jacket, so you owe me $20 for the dry cleaning.
- What? - Cough up.
- What's going on? - Malika! Hi! Kiara? The police came and arrested my mom.
My grandma is out of town.
I tried calling you.
- What? - Look, three live children! Never let it be said that I am not an appropriate babysitter.
I'm sorry, my phone was off.
I didn't know where to go.
It's okay.
You came to the right place.
Okay, well, I'm going to figure this all out, okay? We're gonna get your mom out.
It's going to be fine.
You all can stay here with me tonight.
I'm hungry.
Okay, how about we order a pizza? Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! I'm so sorry.
No, no, I'm sorry for making you turn your phone off.
- It's fine, it's fine.
- Can I help? No, it's okay.
I'm going to call Dyonte.
The kids already know him.
Yeah, no problem.
Um - I'll see you at work.
- Okay.
How do you think things are going with Isabella? Better than I thought.
- But I do feel a little guilty.
- Why? I asked her to respect my boundaries with Mami and Papi, and she's definitely keeping them at arm's length.
But I wonder if that's even fair.
What do you mean? Her parents cut her off and I can see that she needs some parental support.
How can I deny her that? And the truth is, she's going to form her own relationship with them, whether I like it or not.
She's going to be the mother of their first grandchild.
But, I don't know, be careful.
You know our parents.
You give them an inch and they'll take a mile.
Maybe they won't with her.
She can hold her own.
Speaking of holding his own how serious are things with Spencer? - Hey.
- Hey.
Is everything okay? No.
Can we talk? - Oh, hey.
- Hey! We're so excited about closing the Contend deal, so thank you for hooking it up with Rowena.
You're the one who introduced me to Bulk Beauty, so thank you.
By the way, I heard about another female-led start-up doing something really similar to BB, and I hear they're looking for a project leader.
If you're interested, I could put in a word.
Oh, um, well, I just started with BB.
I get that.
But to be honest, I don't think the girls appreciate what an asset you are.
And life's too short to sit around while your talents are being wasted.
Well, um, thanks.
I'll think about it and I'll let you know.
Thank you for coming over.
Of course.
So I wanted to tell you that I didn't actually run any errands today.
The real reason I bailed on lunch is because I have an eating disorder.
And I thought I was past all of this, but I recently lost some weight and, um, have been getting some positive comments on my body again the kind that I used to get when I was underweight and that that triggered some old behaviors like isolating myself and lying about eating.
I even scrolled through some old photos from when I was sick and for a minute, ha I really missed that body.
And I started to think it wasn't as bad as everyone thought, and I can I can be sick and still be happy.
Then I remembered how lonely and painful it felt.
I don't want that life again.
- I, uh - No, you don't You don't have to do or say anything.
I just I wanted I wanted to tell you to hold myself accountable.
Because I trust you.
Thank you for sharing that with me.
And I want to say I completely regret my choice - of a feel-better gift.
- No, it's okay! - Oh, no.
- You didn't know.
It's cute.
You're cute.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
You're cute, too.
- Thanks for cleaning up.
- Of course.
It's the least we could do after that delicious dinner.
Yes, thank you.
It was a real treat having a home-cooked meal.
Well, there are plenty more where that came from.
Do you live alone? Um She's living in my loft right now.
And I'm crashing with a friend.
It's just temporary, just until I get a job and then I'll get my own place.
I don't think it's a good idea, you being pregnant and living alone.
And what about after the baby's born? Are you going to be up all night doing feedings with no help? We'll figure something out.
- Mm-hmm.
- And you shouldn't be alone.
Lots of single moms do it, though.
But you're not single.
What he means is you have us.
And I would love to be the night nurse.
Mom, I'm going to be helping her out.
How, if you're not even living together? I'm not saying I would be there every night.
I could come a couple of times a week just until the baby's sleeping through the night.
If that's something that Isabella wants, that's up to her.
And it's okay, I want you to have all the support you need.
- If you're comfortable with it.
- Thank you.
I'm sure I'll welcome all the help I can get.
And I would really love to throw you a baby shower.
Mami! Let's not overwhelm her.
Pero, mija, we're just excited.
This family's having a baby! Well this family is also having a wedding because we're engaged.
What! A wedding and a baby.
¡Oh, Dios mío! How blessed are we? Oh, it's beautiful! Of course, that is, Mr.
Martinez if we have your blessing.
Of course, you have my blessing.
- Congratulations.
- Thank you! And your baby, you can count on some cousins because we want to start a family too.
Mami! When I first received these clothes, I was excited to discover that I fit into a smaller size and I got caught up in the positive comments I was getting, which triggered some old, unhealthy thinking.
But being body positive is not about what size you wear.
It is about accepting that all bodies are different and loving yours unconditionally.
So I'm respectfully returning these clothes and returning to a healthy and positive mindset.
And it all went surprisingly well.
I mean, this is what I've been wishing for for so long that my parents would accept Jazmin and we can be a family again.
Maybe this baby is what we needed to get everyone back together.
I'm really happy for you.
Come here.
Gael? Uh, Mom.
What are you doing here? I came to drop something off for Isabella.
- She's not here.
- I can see that.
Um Mom, this is Callie.
My girlfriend.
