Good Trouble (2019) s03e19 Episode Script

Closing Arguments

1 How do you know Zelda Grant? Mariana, aren't you joining us? I'm not a partner.
So I'm fine right here.
To be honest, I don't think the girls appreciate what an asset you are.
I heard about another female-led startup doing something really similar to BB.
I could put in a word.
I'm not interested in interpreting the law.
I want to work to change it.
With all due respect, Your Honor, I have to quit.
- You're a lawyer? - Yes.
Well, aren't you a little overqualified to be a research assistant? I need a job.
Aren't you opening this firm to help people like Jerod? I'll do it on one condition.
You quit Legal Aid and come work for me.
Most of the people you represent as a defense attorney are going to be guilty of something.
You are going to have to fight just as hard for him, even if you think he might be guilty.
Zack and Tommy weren't just friends.
They were hooking up.
And Zack broke up with him at the party.
And that's what the fight was really about.
I haven't loved everything that's gone down in this trial.
Truthfully, I I'm not sure where I fit in.
I know the feeling.
I don't even remember why I wanted to do this.
I do.
You wanted to challenge the systems that oppress people.
You wanted to work for the ACLU.
I guess I've lost sight of some of those dreams.
If you want the lunatics to run the asylum, then go ahead.
I'm out! Without a director this late in the game, there's no way to have a showcase.
However, Margaret Cho has agreed to step in and save the day.
I bought it.
This is my new passion.
I'm going to cook for people.
There's nothing going on between me and Dennis.
Are you still sorting out your feelings? What are the rules when it comes to seeing other people? He's my first relationship since I came out as poly.
Look, if this is who you are, I don't want to change you.
I can't deal with this.
What do you know about what the FBI has on Kathleen? Officially, witness tampering.
Kathleen was representing a major player in the Chinese mob.
Did you have anything to do with the disappearance of the witness? Yes, I did.
If we lose this case, Ken Sung might not tell me where his sister is.
This means I could go to jail.
I am pregnant.
I know things are much more complicated now I'm used to complicated.
I'm going to be a father.
I mean, it's not like you're together.
I sort of wondered when your real feelings were going to come out.
I'm cramping and I I'm bleeding.
I'm gonna go to the ER.
I can go by myself.
No, I'm coming with you.
It's okay.
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you to whatever God you may or may not believe in? Sure.
Good answer.
Do you think it was wise to trust me? Do you believe I'm innocent? Do you really think you're cut out to defend liars and killers? Are you sure you're ready to be a father? She needs to come first.
What if I want to come first? You really believe that I'm not ready to love you? Or are you using that as an excuse because you're scared of what we could be? Do you really think we're ever going to forgive you? You lied every day about Evan.
How can we ever trust you again? Do you know you broke my heart? Are you really committed to being an activist? Or are you going to sell out the minute another opportunity arises? You really think you can juggle two relationships at the same time? Are you really poly or did you just want to sleep with Dyonte while you were with Isaac? What would you do if I came back? Are you using me to keep the one you really love at bay? What would you do if I told you that I still love you? I'm not sure.
Why did you lie to me about being in a relationship with Ruby? Are you sure you didn't get into the program because you were sleeping with me? Do you really feel like you're that funny, Kwan? Don't you ever feel like you're An impostor.
Impostor, impostor, impostor.
Impostor, impostor, impostor, impostor, impostor.
I, the jury, find the defendants guilty as charged.
Let's get you into bed.
- Do you need anything? - No.
I just need to rest.
Yeah, of course.
Here, let me get your shoes.
I'll be right back, okay? Callie, I'm really sorry about dinner.
Oh, my God, no, don't be.
Just go take care of Isabella.
Thank you.
I was so scared I was going to lose the baby.
Yeah, but we didn't.
And you and the baby are gonna be fine.
I'm sorry I wasn't here.
It's okay.
I just didn't want to interrupt your date with Callie.
But I'm so glad Dennis called you.
Me too.
You need to put Katie back on the stand and get her to admit she made up this lie about Zack and my son.
Tommy Was it a lie? Of course it's a lie.
She's trying to throw suspicion off herself.
Ken! Tommy Were you in a romantic relationship with Zack? Yes.
- Hey! - I'm sorry.
I'm tired of lying.
I'm sorry I didn't tell you the truth.
I was scared.
But I didn't hurt Zack.
I loved him.
And the only thing Katie lied about is that Zack broke up with me that night.
He didn't.
I think our only option is to put Tommy on the stand.
To let the jury see what we're seeing here, that Tommy loved Zack.
No way! If he gets on the stand and there's even one homophobic juror, my son is going down.
It's not up to you, Ken.
What do you want to do? Callie, what do you think? I think it might help if the jury heard from you.
May I speak with you? In private.
You know, there's something called a cell phone.
I wanted to do this in person.
Are you still worried that your calls are being tapped? I cut a deal with the FBI to show them your books.
And they will find that I took money from Albert Chen's retainer.
You do realize this means I could go to jail? It was either that or they were going to subpoena all of the firm's books.
And, like you said, we can't let that happen.
Look, I can probably hold them off for 48 hours or so.
If you have anything to give them, any deal you can cut, you need to do it now.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Sack of shit.
If you agree not to put Tommy on the stand, I'll tell you where my sister is right now.
You'll have proof of life, and you can get the FBI off your back.
Is that your old law partner I saw leaving? Yes.
What did he want? Oh, he's been trying to get me into bed for years.
Just won't take no for an answer.
Why do I get the impression that Tommy's not the only one who's been keeping secrets? Because you don't trust anyone.
Can I trust you? Haven't I proven you can? So what are we going to do? Are we putting Tommy on the stand? Oh, my God.
I heard Isabella went to the hospital last night.
Everything okay with the baby? Yeah, thankfully.
You don't put your wet towel on my jacket.
She was cramping and she had some bleeding 'cause her blood pressure was elevated.
So she's on bed rest for a few days.
They just have to keep an eye on it.
So I'm guessing your date with Gael Didn't really happen, which is fine, of course.
Is it all fine? I mean, I know you thrive on complications.
That's not true.
Oh, really? Have you looked back on your life? Historically speaking, you pretty much sought after every complicated situation you could ever find.
I'm just saying, as your sister and best friend, how are you gonna feel when the baby is born and Gael has even less time to spend with you? What am I supposed to do? I know you really like him, but unless you're hopelessly in love, is it too late to pump the brakes? And are you really over Jamie? Now who's trying to complicate things? Okay, fine.
I'll shut up.
But there's nothing wrong with trying to make your life a little easier.
Oh, yeah? How's the, uh, coding job going with the Fight Club girls, Miss Take-The-Easy-Path? Not great, but that's why I have an interview for a new job today, and hopefully, a new and easier path.
Good for you.
Proud of you.
- Love you.
- Love you! Presenting my business license, public health permit, and certified food handler certificate.
The Toast Truck? Yup, that's the name of the truck.
It's all about the delicious things that you can make with toast.
Avocado toast, - of course, for the millennials.
- Obviously.
Cinnamon toast, French toast, open-toast sandwiches.
You had me at bread.
And I had an epiphany.
When Gael came to the hospital to pick up Isabella, I went down to the children's ward.
You did? I hadn't been down there since, uh - How was it? - It was hard.
But I needed to go back and know that I could face those memories and be okay.
Um, and I saw all these parents looking for junk food in vending machines because they couldn't leave their kids long enough to find something real to eat.
And I remembered being one of them.
And I thought "I'm going to feed them.
" Once a week, I'm gonna take the truck to the hospital and I'm gonna bring up warm meals to the parents of sick kids.
To comfort them.
I think that's amazing.
Grief makes you want to pull back and isolate, when what you really need to do is reach out to people.
I'm so proud of you and how far you've come, and that you found something that you're passionate about.
You're a big part of that.
A big part of the reason I'm still here.
It's true.
As you know, a decision needs to be made about which intern we're offering - the full-time DPN position to.
- Yes.
You have inspired all of us with your hard work and especially your mini campaign.
Thank you.
I just wish there was a way to expand it.
I mean, there's so much need and not enough money.
That's always the challenge with the work we do.
And Dyonte has also done an amazing job for us.
I mean, his rest campaign, it's very fresh and really, really needed.
It is.
That said, it was a very difficult decision.
But we have decided to offer you the position.
Really sell the freak dancing.
Remember, you're super uni-horny for each other.
How are the unicorn costumes coming? Oh, they will be ready ASAP.
Thank you so much for volunteering for this.
Oh, it's no problem.
Hey, I also wanted to say that I'm I'm really happy for you and Alice.
Happy? Why? Oh, you know, 'cause you're back together.
Oh! No.
We're just friends.
Hey, guys.
Everyone, check your phones.
Apparently, somebody leaked an email from Elise in HR to the network executives, and I'm pretty sure it was not meant for our eyes.
Thank you so much for meeting with me.
Zelda Grant is obsessed with you and we're obsessed with her.
Oh, she's so great.
Love her.
- Love.
- So great! Oh, my gosh.
Oh, wow.
You worked at Speckulate.
I hear that's like a super-toxic workplace, especially for women.
Yeah, it wasn't great.
But that Evan Speck is super cute though, right? So why don't we tell you a little bit about what we're doing here? We're all about eco-friendly beauty products in no-waste packaging.
And what we're building is an app that tracks when your favorite all-natural products need replenishing, and then we send you refills in environmentally friendly and stylish packaging.
Bulk Beauty will partner with zero-waste brands that are - Cruelty free.
- Vegan.
- Sustainable.
- Products that they love and can feel good about.
And can share with their friends.
And we offer you the opportunity to share your reviews with women you've connected with and suggest other products you might like.
That's an amazing idea.
So original.
Can I ask who's funding the app? Jackie Morton at the Hallis group.
Do you know her? It's Jackie.
- Hi.
- I've got some bad news.
Vincent passed on the project.
It's a really good idea.
I'm sure it'll land somewhere else.
I'm not sure.
She sounds familiar, like your idea.
What? I'm not sure.
She sounds familiar.
Mickelson, how many times did you run this simulation? 5000 times.
And how many times did the fall occur as we just saw? 30 times.
30 out of 5000.
Those seem like pretty low odds.
Not really.
It's actually better than getting a full house in poker.
Oh, well, I've had plenty of those.
So in your professional opinion, Zack Smith, who had been drinking at the time, could have fallen off the drop-off, hit his head, and accidentally fallen to his death? Absolutely.
Thank you.
Mickelson, didn't you write an academic paper last year where your scientific process and use of data was discredited by your peers? - That was a different situation.
- Yes or no, please.
Yes, but No further questions.
Did Tommy show any animosity towards Zack when you replaced him as starting quarterback? No, he took it as the good sport and team player he always was.
But he wasn't happy about it, right? No.
Of course, he was upset.
You found a .
01 blood alcohol level in Zack, but that was hours after time of death.
Could his blood alcohol level have been higher at the time of death? It's possible.
Is there anything you found that is inconsistent with this being an accident? No.
So the bottom line is you can't say Zack Smith was murdered.
Nor can I say it was an accidental death.
No further questions, Your Honor.
- Well? - This jury is really hard to read.
I'd say it was a draw.
Are you comfortable with those odds? Should we put Tommy on the stand? "Alice Kwan will be the recipient of the talent deal and the $70,000.
" What? How? We haven't even done the showcase yet.
"It's been a few years since an Asian has won the deal.
" "Asians are hot this year.
" "Shaun is Asian too, but also trans, which confuses things, haha.
" "Plus with Margaret Cho directing, best to reward another female Asian comic.
" I'm sorry.
I mean, all of this is totally messed up.
- I can't believe it.
- I'm not surprised.
I know it's wack, but Alice deserves this deal.
Why? Because, Derek, this whole thing would have been called off if it wasn't for her.
I think we all deserve the deal or at least a shot at it.
There's no way I'm accepting this.
You don't have to be a martyr.
You should accept the deal.
And we can take advantage of the exposure we're getting from casting directors and agents.
I mean, that's the whole point anyway.
I agree.
I mean, if they're using us, we'll use them.
Wasn't the whole point to not let them use us, period? Margaret, what do you think? Well, in my experience, opportunities weren't always offered for the purest reasons, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't accept it.
- Exactly.
- Agreed.
Look, I say we just do the showcase and support our girl, Alice.
All right.
So I got a bunch of vendors ready to sign on to a rest festival to launch the campaign.
And I was worried people wouldn't get it, but the response has been overwhelming.
Of course it is.
Everyone gets the need for rest, so Everything good? Yeah.
I got a job offer.
One Paloma.
On the house.
I see somebody told you what my favorite drink is.
Thank you.
Well, it's the least I could do.
When Angelica told me she had a friend working in the City Council office, I didn't expect it to be an actual City Council person.
Well, I didn't want to risk you losing her vote if you didn't come through.
I appreciate that.
Excuse me.
Got a new table.
I can't thank you enough for helping Yvonne, and I really appreciate you coming in, so I could thank you in person.
It was my pleasure.
And I wanted to meet you.
I'm aware of your campaign to help women in pre-trial detention.
And I am very impressed by you and your passion.
And I need somebody like you on my team, somebody with inside knowledge of the system.
Wait, "need" as in like an advisor? "Need" as in on my staff.
We need legislation and real money if we're going to address these issues.
Private donations and grants aren't going to cut it.
As we redistribute police funding, we need to divert that money back into the communities, back into our communities, that are devastated the most by incarceration and detention.
I mean, I couldn't agree more.
So come work for me.
Let's really get things done.
I hope you're not considering it.
And why do you say that? You can't trust politicians.
They're big on lip service, but you see what happens once they get into office.
They break their promises because their jobs become dependent on maintaining the status quo.
What's going on here? Wow.
Thank you.
I'm really honored and I so appreciate this.
But can I think about it? Yes.
And it's only because I was offered a job to work for Councilwoman Lucia Morales.
And she seems hella passionate about funding my mini campaign with public dollars and passing legislation to end pre-trial detention.
And it just seems like a great opportunity to get things done on a big scale.
Sounds intriguing.
And if I did take that job, I wouldn't want Dyonte to think that he came second here.
I get it.
I won't say anything until you decide.
Thank you.
I'm trying to talk her out of going to the dark side.
Well, government moves like molasses in January.
The few legislative fights we win can take years to bear fruit.
But having someone on the inside advocating for us on a daily basis, wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.
Let me know what you decide to do.
I've said my piece.
This is your decision.
But what happens if you get the job here at DPN? I don't know.
I guess we'll see.
Does the defense have any more witnesses to call? Miss Gale.
Uh, no, Your Honor.
We have no more witnesses to call.
Too bad.
But we do call the defendant, Tommy Sung, to the stand.
That's a desperate move, even for Kathleen.
Big mistake.
Are you good? Yeah.
I want you to question Tommy.
- But this could decide the case.
- He responds to you.
You bring out the best in him.
You can do this.
- Hey.
- You're late, Mariana.
Oh, uh, I told you I had an appointment.
You emailed, but no one approved it.
I didn't know that I needed approval.
Also, about the code you just turned in.
- What about it? - It had some small syntax errors.
And one tiny interface disconnect.
The point is it wasn't perfect.
You made mistakes.
Okay, if there were mistakes, it's because you were all over me.
Do you want it done fast or do you want it done right? And I don't appreciate how I've been treated when I've proven that I'm valuable and willing to do anything to make everything up to you.
Then do the work right the first time.
- You're being a little harsh, Claire.
- It was your idea to cut Mariana loose in the first place.
- We all decided! - What was the point if we were gonna let her back in? Okay.
You know what? If you don't want me here, I'll just leave.
As an employee, not as partner.
I can do more than just code.
A friend offered Isabella a job and a place to stay in Santa Barbara.
Just while she's pregnant, and then she'd come back closer to when she was due.
How do you feel about that? What if something happens again and I'm really not there? Like, I felt terrible that she didn't feel like she could call me because I was with Callie.
Okay, well, that's on her.
How is it going with Callie? It's hard, man.
When I'm with her, I'm worried about Isabella.
And when I'm with Isabella, I'm worried about Callie.
What happens when the baby's born, and I'm doing night feedings, and Isabella really needs me? How do I be there for both of them then? Well, you can't.
You know, if you love Callie, you need to split your time and affection between them and be at peace with that, because you can't be in two places or with two people at one time, physically or emotionally.
How about you? Have you decided between Matt and Dennis? What was the nature of your relationship with Zack? We were involved.
Involved romantically? Yes.
Were you jealous when he replaced you as starting quarterback? No, no.
He was better than me.
Did you fight with him at the party? Yes, but not about that.
What was it about? It was about Katie flirting with Zack.
He wanted me to break up with her.
I felt like he was doing it to piss me off.
And you were pissed off? Yes.
But we made up right after.
Did you hit Zack over the head with a rock? No.
Did you push him over the drop-off? - No.
- Did you have anything to do - with Zack's death? - No.
No further questions, Your Honor.
Hunter, why don't you take this one? Since you have a tendency to rile Callie up.
No, thanks.
Well, what would you say if I told you you didn't have a choice? Then I'd say you should fire me.
Yes, Your Honor.
Do you have any questions for this witness? We certainly do.
So you've been doing a lot of lying, haven't you, Tommy? Everything I've said today is true.
But you did lie to the police about having a fight with Zack.
Right? - Yes.
- And you lied about the true nature of your relationship with Zack.
Well, we weren't out.
We didn't lie.
Did you tell Katie you were having a sexual relationship with Zack? No.
- So wouldn't that be a lie? - I guess.
And you said Zack wanted you to break up with Katie.
- Is that right? - Yes.
Because he was tired of you pretending with Katie, of using her as cover.
And that is why he came to you and broke up with you that night.
- No.
- Isn't that true? - No.
- And that is why, in a rage, you picked up a rock and you hit him over the head.
- No, I didn't.
- And then you pushed him to his death.
No! I I loved him! If you loved him, then why weren't you at his funeral? You know the reason, Tommy.
You weren't at his funeral because you couldn't look his family in the eye because you killed their son.
- Isn't that - No! Shut up! Shut up! I have just one more question for you, Tommy.
Would you say you have an explosive temper? Objection! Withdrawn.
No further questions.
Do you need to take a break? No.
No, I'm okay.
Um why didn't you go to Zack's funeral? It was out of respect for his family.
They knew that the police suspected me.
I didn't wanna make things any harder for them.
What did you do that day instead? - I drove around - No.
Tell them.
I drove around to the places we loved.
I listened to a playlist that he made me.
I just kept wishing that he was still alive, that we were in those places together, that suddenly he would just be there and all this was a bad dream.
But he's gone.
Thank you for having the courage to take the stand and tell the truth.
No further questions, Your Honor.
The defense rests.
Dyonte doesn't want me to take the job with Lucia.
- Why not? - He doesn't trust politicians.
But the idea of being able to pass legislation and possibly end pre-trial detention and get real money and resources for these women I'm working with is so tempting.
I, uh, I also love being an activist and the work that we're doing at DPN.
But if I take that job, then Dyonte is out of a job, and he ain't working nowhere right now.
I mean, he's poured everything into this.
Must be hard to be in competition for a job with someone you're also seeing.
Yeah, it's not ideal.
- I mean, you know Lucia.
- Mm-hmm.
Is she for real? I think she's very passionate about changing the system.
You two have a lot in common, actually.
I think you'd work well together.
Would it be awkward for you if I was working with your ex? I don't think so.
I mean, you've heard the joke, "What does a lesbian bring to her first date? Her ex-girlfriend.
" Wait, I thought it was a U-Haul.
That's the second date.
Oh, so you got one parked outside? Uh, not quite.
I'm the exception to the rule.
I've never lived with anyone before.
What about you? You mentioned that you were in a serious relationship before Dyonte.
With Isaac.
But when I came out as poly, he wasn't comfortable with me seeing anyone else.
And that's why you broke up? Yes and no.
I mean, I told him we could be monogamous like we were, but he didn't trust me after that, I guess.
And then he left the country, so Wait, so what about you? Like, I know you don't have to be poly to date someone who is, but you do have to be cool with it.
Well I'm not really sure, actually.
I think, for now, I just want to take things a day at a time.
That's real.
So back to Dyonte.
I think that you need to make this decision based on what's right for you.
- Yeah.
- He sounds resilient.
Whatever you decide, I'm sure he'll land on his feet.
Your work here has been so good we're really proud of you.
- I appreciate that.
- Mm-hmm.
And we're looking forward just to keep you on and you're part of the team now.
- Congratulation.
- Thank you very much.
So, uh, Imani offered me the paid position here.
I'm sorry.
Don't be.
This is good news! - But you worked so hard - We both did.
It's okay.
I'm taking the job with Lucia.
I hate the idea that you're taking that job as a consolation.
I'm not! Look, this is a win-win.
We both get to continue our work.
Look, I vetted Lucia, and I'm not gonna compromise myself or my beliefs by working inside the system.
I promise.
Thank you so much for agreeing to meet with me again.
Look, uh I know Revitalize Beauty seems similar to your concept, but I can assure you Ava and Raisa pitched the basics of the idea long before we met with you.
Any similarities are purely coincidental.
So if you're here to threaten me with a lawsuit Oh, I'm not.
Actually, I'm here to convince you to hire me.
Obviously, I know the business model.
I have the app specs already and a working list of beauty brands that would make strong partners for the company.
And if you hire me, I can get Revitalize up and running in a matter of weeks.
What happened to Bulk Beauty and your other partners? Well, I realized you were right.
I needed to separate myself from them, their bad reputations, and all of the drama they create.
Well, it seems to me like you were part of all the drama.
Well, if that were true, would Evan Speck be so willing to give me a glowing recommendation? You can feel free to call him.
In the meantime, we both know that I'm the person you need to get this app up and running.
Full stop.
And the good news is, I can start right away.
Thank you, thank you.
I'm Margaret Cho.
Welcome to our comedy showcase.
I'm so excited to be here.
And I'm even more excited to introduce you to our talented comedians.
Where is everyone? The show's tonight.
Shouldn't you be rehearsing? We should.
But after learning, "Asians are in this year," and you had already decided on who was getting the talent deal, the comedians chose to quit the program.
Now let me introduce our incredibly talented comedians.
Yeah! All right! All right! So truly, there's nothing wrong with accepting an opportunity, no matter where it comes from.
That said, sometimes it's not worth it if it makes you feel shitty.
You know, in my career, my biggest breaks didn't come from networks or studios.
It came from fellow artists, friends looking out for each other, getting each other gigs, giving each other a leg up.
In fact, if you aren't happy about what happened today and you still want to do the showcase, I have some friends and I'm sure you have some friends who would love to come and support you.
Yes! Yes! Thank you for coming.
Thank you for showing up on such short notice and a special shout-out to our girl, Kelly, for hooking us up with this incredible venue, - The Palace Theater! - We love you, Kelly! And now, on to the comedy showcase.
Thank you.
We're about to trot home, canter up a little foreplay, gallop into the sheets, and then ride it to the finish.
Can I watch? Neigh! I did not think you would win that case.
And I definitely didn't think you'd do it so calmly.
Nice work, Very Successful, Not Angry, Female, Black Lawyer.
What did you just call me? I have a real name.
I went to Harvard Law.
What the hell is wrong with you people? Fine, we'll take the baraat to the air, but will a helicopter do? Okay, okay, his and hers jet packs it is.
Let's not lose sight of tradition.
We'll get the elephant a jet pack too.
Car is parked Bags are packed But what kind of heart doesn't look back At the comfortable glow from the porch The one I will still call yours? - All those words - Can I stay with you tonight? Came undone Yeah.
And now I'm not the only one Facing the ghosts that decide If the fire inside still burns All I have, all I need He's the air I would kill to breathe Holds my love in his hands Still I'm searching for something Out of breath I am left - Oh, I'm so sorry! - Sorry.
Hoping someday I'll breathe again Hang my head Break my heart Just leave me alone.
No - I want to be alone! - Bullshit! And my burden to bear Is a love I can't carry anymore All I have, all I need He's the air I would kill to breathe Holds my love in his hands And still I'm searching All I have, all I need He's the air I would kill to breathe Holds my love in his hands Still I'm searching for something Out of breath I am left hoping someday I'll breathe again I'll breathe again Out of breath I am left hoping someday I'll breathe again So how long you been fly fishing? Never! I need job for divorce my husband.
Well, why? He leave cup of water everywhere.
Kitchen table, water.
Nightstand, water.
Mahjong table, water.
Mom, that's you.
And he chew so loud.
Crunch, crunch, crunch! Crunch, crunch, crunch! He crunch me to die! I'm so funny.
- You want a divorce? - If you craving day-old, stale drinking water, come to Kwan house.
So the jury's been deliberating for five hours.
What are we thinking? Well, a non-reactive jury following an emotional closing is not a good sign.
I'm sorry to say, but I think they're going to find him guilty.
I honestly don't know.
I think not guilty.
Really? What changed your mind? When he took the stand, it's the first time I found him credible.
Now I'm really worried.
Yeah, your instincts are usually terrible.
The jury made a decision.
Verdict will be read tomorrow.
After five hours of deliberating? Is that good or bad? Could be either.
Thank you! Thanks a lot! All right! Whoo! Thank you, but there is one more thing.
Alice, the comedians have prepared something for you.
It's not a CBTV talent deal or 70k, but I think this will cushion the blow.
Have a seat.
She's a fighter and a crazy good writer She took a stand and almost got banned She's a good friend on who you depend She's Alice The Inspir-Asian Turned down the prize Didn't compromise Super hot Stuck it to Scott Didn't let us go Got us Margaret Cho She's Alice I'm Alice! The Inspir-Asiaaaaan - Whoo! - Whoo! So I'm giving my notice.
I'm quitting.
We hired you because you said you were just fine being a coder.
And I am! But I also wanted a chance to prove that I deserve another chance.
Enough! Why are we doing this? Okay, we've been through too much together.
And since Mariana has been back, she's only proven that we work better with her than without her.
We need to stop holding a grudge and let Mariana prove she's changed.
We are better together.
And grudge holding is exhausting.
But no more lies, no more schemes, no more doing shit behind our backs.
I promise.
And in that spirit, um I have a small confession.
I applied for another job.
I got the job.
Now let's burn Revitalize Beauty to the ground.
So, um I think we need to talk about how involved I'm going to be with this pregnancy and after the baby's born.
I don't want you to go to Santa Barbara.
Especially after what happened, I want you to know I'm here 100%, and not be worried that you're taking me from anyone or anything else.
What about Callie? What a great show! And party! I can't believe we pulled it off.
And my parents actually think I'm funny.
They were so proud of you, and so was I.
Um, so, here we are.
Do you want a nightcap? I think I still have some baijiu left.
You know what happened last time.
I'm not seeing Ruby.
Oh, you're not? Actually, I know.
Ruby told me.
Why did you want me to think that you were back together? I guess because I'm scared.
Of me? It was really hard to get over you the first time.
I don't wanna go through that again.
You know, it took a lot for me to find my voice and start standing up to people.
Listen, I'm not the same Alice you took on your first date with Meera before we were even broken up.
I know.
I can't believe I did that to you.
I'm so sorry.
But I'm not that same person anymore either.
The only part of that person I want to be is the part that is still in love with you.
But what if we fall back into the same old patterns? Maybe it's too much to risk.
How's Isabella? She's good.
Um, I think the scare was pretty traumatic for her.
Yeah, of course.
How's the trial? Uh, verdict's in.
We'll hear tomorrow.
How do you think it's going to go? I don't know.
So, uh, what did you want to talk about? Um I'm gonna be a father.
And I don't know how to do that part-time.
And I also want to be the partner you deserve.
But I know I'm not capable of doing both.
Yeah, I know too.
When you shine your light on someone, it's the most wonderful feeling in the world.
'Cause you just give everything you have.
That light needs to be on Isabella and the baby.
- This is hard.
- Yeah, I know.
We both know it's right.
So, when do I get to meet Angelica? I don't know, I mean, it's really new.
So probably not until we know where it's going.
Okay, fair enough.
Wish I could stay the night, - but I got an early meeting.
- Hmm.
It's okay.
You stayed for the important part.
- I did.
- Mm-hmm.
And I'm starting my new job tomorrow.
Okay, so I guess - We're just gonna have to agree - To disagree.
- Yes.
- Yeah.
Good night.
What would you do if I came back? I don't know.
Well? I just think maybe we're better off as friends.
Good night.
Good night.
Are you scared? Are you using me? I've come to a decision.
I know what I want.
Why not be with Isabella? Be a family.
Just please stay.
Would you ever give us another chance? Would you? What did she say? She hasn't responded yet.
Has the jury come to a verdict? Yes, Your Honor.
Now, as the verdict is read, I want to caution the audience to remain calm.
Any disruption in my courtroom and I'll have the bailiff remove you immediately.
I cut a deal with the FBI to show them your books.
Sack of shit.
Please rise.
Face the jury.
You may proceed.
In the matter of the people of the state of California versus Thomas Sung, for the charge of murder in the first degree, we find the defendant So Callie Adams Foster why did you want to become an attorney? I wanted to fight for social and civil rights.
As a law clerk? No, uh, my college counselor thought Who recommended you become a defense attorney? No one.
I was trying to help Jerod When're you gonna stop making excuses - for why you keep getting derailed? - I'm not making excuses.
You're not? You remind me of a dandelion seed just floating in the air in whatever direction the wind is blowing.
I'm adapting to the situations I find myself in.
I've always had to do that.
Just because things happened in your young life that you had no control over does not mean you have to be stuck in reaction mode as an adult.
I'm not.
I take action.
Well, let's talk about your actions.
You love Jamie, and yet you thought that the only way to do the right thing was to betray him.
- Our values - Bullshit! You're not the only one with convictions.
And your truth is not the only truth.
But with you, it's it's, "See it my way - or hit the highway.
" - I don't agree.
I don't think we would be having this conversation if you were looking for someone to agree with you.
You're stuck in a loop, Callie.
Playing out the same scenes, day after day, year after year.
Time for you to leave your safe cocoon and bet on yourself.
It's time for you to believe that you can be more than just the Callie Adams Foster that we all know and love.
What if I can't? What if this is the best I'll ever be? As good as it gets? I don't believe anything's as good as it gets.
You have the power to make every day better.
To let go of everything and everyone who's holding you down.
You deserve the moon and the stars.
You just have to have the courage to reach for them.
Is that why you're leaving? I'm leaving? What's keeping you here?
