Grown-ish (2018) s02e21 Episode Script

Dreams and Nightmares

1 ZOEY: When do your dreams descend into nightmares? Apparently, it's when the subconscious mind is wrestling with an unresolved issue or fear.
Zoey, just don't take this the wrong way, but can you just fall back? - Uh, like a job? - Yeah, a job.
Honestly, the job was never your boy's to have.
And there's nothing more terrifying than coming face-to-face with those things in your dreams.
[Gasps] [Heart beating rapidly] I need you for the night - LUCA: You okay, baby? - Uh Except maybe waking up and coming face-to-face with them in reality.
No.
Um actually, there's something I need to tell you.
Let's not forget that I stayed by your side Um And at that moment, my biggest fear was how Luca was gonna react when he found out I had accepted a dream job with one of the artists he wanted to design for the most.
Okay, so you work for Joey Bada$$ now? Cool.
Cool.
Cool? He's cool.
- Wait a minute.
Hold up.
- Mm? Tell me again how this happened, but this time, can you really, really paint the picture? If so, if so He's not cool.
No.
Legit, all it was, was So after really painting that picture for Luca, things shifted from cool to uncomfortably warm.
So, wait.
One minute you're pushing me to talk to this dude about a job, next minute, you're taking the job with him? You didn't even know who Joey Bada$$ was until I put you on.
- Sure.
But it was an opportunity.
- My opportunity.
Angel in my And from there, things went from uncomfortably warm to straight-up scalding.
I told you to fall back so I could get at him my way! And that's what I did! No, you didn't! You followed him outside and showed him your digital portfolio! Said you fixing to dive Yeah Cliffing tonight And you don't care about anything but yourself! - That's just a fact! It's literally a fact.
- Are you This is absurd.
You literally Dude, I went outside to fall back, just like you told me to, and he just so happened to be out there, - and we just so happened - You want a face lift I got my face lit And you just so happen to sound mad sus.
What was I supposed to do? He said he wasn't gonna give you the job, so I figured shouldn't one of us have it? You told me to take it! Remember our whole "vegan slider" conversation? Yeah, I thought we were talking about a burger, - not a [bleep] job.
- [Sighs] I swear, this is some double-talking snake shit, bro.
Luca, I have your back.
I-I would never do anything to hurt you.
I swear.
Whatever.
[Sighs] I'm off this, anyways.
So, really, that's it? You're just gonna get up and leave with no pants on? I can't find them probably 'cause you stole those, too.
[Scoffs] I didn't steal anything.
Appreciate you having my back, chief.
[Door opens, closes] I thought nightmares were supposed to end when you opened your eyes.
Watch out, world, I'm grown now I'm grown Learn something new every day I don't know, so I'm-a feel my way Got the weight of the world on me But no regrets, this is what I say Watch out, world, I'm grown now - I'm grown - You can tell me My heart beating so loud Mama, look, I'm grown now I'm grown Do you guys think I should invite Luca to the closing ceremony of the pop-up shop tonight? Oh, wow.
It's over already? Yeah, it's their last night before they head over to London to open up the flagship spot, and - Ah.
- and I really did want him to see it, but we haven't spoken in over a week, so NOMI: Over a week? Like, no texts? No Snapchat? Nothing? No.
What if Luca and I are broken up, and I just don't know it yet? BOTH: Oh, you would know.
Okay.
I understand now why the twins talk in unison, because that was so satisfying, and I think we should clap.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
You.
Would.
Know.
- Ohh.
- It's magic.
Are you done? - Um, uh, yes, yes.
- Mm-hmm.
- Please, go on.
- Mm-hmm.
So then, I should probably invite him, right? I just don't want it to seem like I'm rubbing it in his face.
No, if you want him there, then just be the bigger person and invite him.
Yeah, and while you're at it, you know, just tell him to come over here and get his crap.
Get.
His.
Crap.
Oh, my God.
It's so empowering.
Please don't tell the twins.
- Yeah, don't do that.
- Mnh-mnh.
A toast.
To getting that bulky-ass cast off.
And to having two working legs.
One of which needs to get waxed immediately.
Whatever, okay.
I am just so excited to get back on that field to train, okay? The NCAA finals are gonna be turnt! - Oh, girl! - Yes! Oh, look, Doc.
I can still do "the Thotiana.
" - Hey! - Okay, okay.
[Chuckles] This girl's a real lightweight.
Ms.
Forster, I'm glad your leg's feeling better.
But unfortunately, I have some not-so-great news.
Somebody pop all day, hol' up - Somebody on they way - Yeah! Are you on 10 yet? Are you on 10 yet? Wait, are you on 10 yet? Are you on 10 yet? I live on 10 Wait, but are you on 10 yet Are you 10 yet? Hol' up - The place up, the place up - Hey.
So, what do you think? I think it looks like Tyler, the Creator created a baby with Baby from "Baby Driver.
" Okay, what she's trying to say - is that we are so proud of you.
- Yeah.
- [Chuckles] - It's kind of loud in here.
I'm, like, freaking out that I'm gonna miss this phone call.
You're not waiting for a call from Hewson, are you? No.
I applied for an internship with the ACLU.
More like ACL-boo.
Yeah.
Now that I'm, like, free of the shackles of this relationship, I can finally focus on the things that are important to me.
[Gasps] Freedom's ringing.
Hello? Oh, my God, look.
There's Aaron.
Ugh.
Bitch-ass - [Chuckles] - ass.
Zoey, it's fine.
Aaron and I, we had a moment at his "Black Minds Matter" event, and we're good.
Yeah, no, I actually unblocked him, and we spoke afterwards and even exchanged a couple of political jabs.
- Oh, my God.
That's good, right? - Yeah.
Honestly, I think I was more infatuated with the idea of being in love than actually in love with him.
I am so happy for you.
Plus we all know who he's really in love with.
Yeah.
Wait, what? Hey, Zoey, one of Joey's friends is asking about those gold Spandex track stirrups.
I need you to show me where they are in the stock room.
Yeah.
- Zoey.
- Yes.
- The place up, the place up - Okay.
The place up, the place up Work, work, work, work Hello, there.
Work, work, work, work Sorry, bruh.
This is actually mine.
Oh, no, no.
I believe you're mistaken, because I got here first.
Okay, so, it seems like we got us a situation.
So it seems.
Hmm.
Well, false alarm.
Turns out it was some guy selling Harlem Globetrotter tickets.
- Mm.
- I mean, I bought 'em.
[Laughs] Obviously, right? But, really, these telemarketers are so annoying and stupid, but I can't ignore it, because what if it's the internship that's calling, you know? Um, hey.
Have you either of you guys seen Luca come through by chance? - Um - No.
Did he tell you he was coming? No.
He didn't even really respond to my text.
No, maybe it is over.
Look, you can't let Luca ruin your night, okay? ANA: Exactly.
- You did this.
- Mm-hmm.
You nailed this.
You're so right.
You're so right! I mean, I did this.
I styled those mannequins.
I designed those displays.
I was the one who put this sweatsuit with a dope cross-body bag - and made it a whole vibe.
- So cute.
I don't need Luca.
I really don't because I am a-a strong, powerful, independent Black woman who Oh, my God, he's here.
I'ma pretty bitch, "Sex in the City" bitch No silly, "Kill Bill" kill a bitch Killer bees, sorry, honey, you ain't killin' it Take a dip, 'cause the tastes like cinnamon Hey, you came.
I did.
I couldn't miss your big moment.
Um you know, I'm really sorry about the other night.
There were so many things that were said that I just I wish could be taken back.
Mostly by him.
I'm really just glad that you're here.
Me, too.
Show me around, boss.
Crossin' the line, throwin' blows on sight Yo, just let it go, son.
You let it go, "son.
" I will out-wait you.
Look, this is insane.
We split the cost of the jacket, and we Affleck-Garner this.
A.
K.
A.
, we co-parent.
We can work out a schedule alternating holidays and weekends.
Fine.
Looks like we got ourselves a jacket.
Throwin' blows in sight Jazlyn, can you please stop pacing? You're making me nervous.
How can you be so calm right now? You can't compete in the finals! - It is what it is.
- No, it's not! How could they not see it was a hairline fracture in the first place? We're getting a second opinion, and if we don't like that one, we're getting a third opinion.
Jazlyn, stop.
Okay? You're going to Ohio, and you're gonna run in the finals while I stay home and rehab over the summer.
Then we'll just run together again in the fall.
I've never done anything without you.
I don't know if I can do this without you.
Of course you can.
And hey, listen, you better go down there, and you better represent the Forster sisters.
Because if you don't, then I'm gonna go down there and make sure that you're the one who ends up in the cast, all right? You hear me? Okay.
LUCA: Wow.
This is fire.
You bodied this.
And, you know, obviously, what I said the other night I didn't mean.
Thank you.
You know, it's just really important to me that you know I'd never do anything to hurt you.
Yeah, and, you know, real talk, I get why Joey Bada$$ would give you this job.
I mean, you're perfect.
You're stylish, bubbly.
You're beautiful, so You know, who wouldn't want to be around you? Yeah, but also I'm really talented.
Absolutely.
This event turned out amazing, and it was all you.
I mean Joey didn't know you could do that when he hired you, but Okay, uh So, what are you saying? Hmm? I'm only saying you probably didn't get the job based off your talent.
But that's okay.
No.
Mm, no, actually, it it's not okay.
I got this job based on the fact that he noticed my bracelet.
And then, guess what? He liked my work.
[Chuckles] I mean, Zoey, come on.
I had the same bracelet on.
He didn't hire me.
Yeah, dude, that's probably because you were so busy trying to "lay back in the cut" and "ride your own wave," remember? Or I'm not a cute girl in a nice dress.
Wow.
So, according to you, I either have to do some snake shit or somebody has to want to sleep with me to get a job? - No, but [sighs] it doesn't hurt.
- Actually, you know what? If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go do the job that, apparently, "I didn't earn.
" Zoey Zoey, you're tripping right now.
Dude, why don't you just leave me alone? You guys good? - We're fine.
- We're so not fine.
Look, I know it's none of my business, but tonight's her night, man.
Maybe just now isn't the right time.
I'm trying to have a conversation with my girl, bro.
Actually, you know what, Aaron? It's fine.
We're fine.
So, why don't we go continue to be fine not in my workplace? Okay.
[Scoffs] Praying they don't ever catch it on me Zoey, what's your problem? Why do you always act like I don't support you? Because you only support me on your terms, Luca! Like, you have no problem giving me a pep talk when I'm down and you're up.
But the minute the tables turn, the minute I have the slightest win over you, you can't even handle it.
That's not unconditional support, that's bullshit! So after eight days of no talking and trying to figure out where Luca and I stood, it was suddenly clear.
Nomi and Ana were right.
When it's over, you know.
And I knew.
I don't think I can do this anymore.
What does that even mean? It means we're done.
Au revoir, Zoey's bedroom.
How you holding up? Uh I've been better.
Aw.
Zo, look, it's only been three days, okay? And I get it.
It's really, really hard, even, you know, when you're the one who ended it.
Hey, but you know what? The good news is that, once you're past the anger, you'll land in a place where you guys can be friends again.
And I'm sure you and Luca will see each other over the summer at, like, the mall, or Dave & Busters or something.
Not unless they're in London, we won't.
Wait, London? What are you talking about? What? Well, after the breakup, I realized I just needed a new environment.
So I went to the director of the pop-up shop and asked if there were any opportunities at the flagship store, and she said "yes.
" [Gasps] [British accent] So, your girl's taking her styling skills to London, guvna.
- Zo, that's huge.
- That's amazing! - Wait, h-h-hold on.
- Uh-huh.
Wait.
But, Zo, you you know that you don't have to go halfway around the world just to prove something to Luca.
[Normal voice] I know.
I just kind of want to prove something to myself.
Okay, guys.
Can you believe it? Okay, guys.
Can you believe it? No more finals.
No more apartment.
We actually made it to the end of our sophomore year.
[Sighs] And we're going out exactly the way we came in.
Chips, champagne, and no Luca.
- [Laughter] - You know what? Too soon, crutches.
That was funny, though.
That was funny.
- [Cellphone ringing] This guy.
- Yes.
- I'll I'll do my part.
- Your part? - Hello? - Yes.
Is this Nomi Segal? Yes, this is she.
WOMAN: Ms.
Segal, we're calling from the Cal U Independent Ethics Committee.
There have been some allegations against Professor Paige Hewson regarding inappropriate conduct, and we'd appreciate it if you could come in and talk to us.
Hey, everything okay? What? Yeah, yeah, it was just, like, another annoying telemarketer.
How do they get our number? - I don't know.
- ZOEY: Okay, okay, okay.
Before we all have to go, can we please take one last sophomore selfie to commemorate the year? - [Gasps] - Yeah.
So, we'd started off the year pretty convinced that our sequel would be better.
And in some ways, it had.
We'd survived the road blocks, the injuries, the heartbreak, and we'd all managed to come out even stronger.
And just like that, our sophomore year at Cal U was over.
See you around, Prince Mustafa.
Ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh Ooh Ooh MAN ON TV: I can't believe that Yo, y'all know where Zoey at? I've been blowing up her phone all day, and she's not answering any of my calls.
Sorry.
Um see, the way Girl Code is set up, - I can't reveal to you her location - Airport.
She went to go take a job in London.
Wait.
She's She's leaving? Okay, see, now I know who not to trust with a secret.
Wha If you was leaving, I would want to know.
Aww, baby.
[Chuckles] [Cellphone ringing] You okay over there, Freshman? Yeah.
No.
I'm good.
And I appreciate the ride.
No problem.
No problem.
So, private, huh? Yeah.
The company is paying for it.
I'm basically babysitting a bunch of $700 jean shorts.
Wow.
That's cool.
Just know I will be taking $40 on this tank of gas instead of the original $20 we agreed upon.
- You think you're funny.
- You think I'm funny.
You're fine.
I'm fine? Thank you.
[Chuckles] [Sighs] You scared? A little.
- A lot.
- Don't be.
It's gonna be great.
You just have to believe in it.
Yeah.
What? Why are you always here? I'm sorry.
I I don't comprehend.
I don't know.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, you were there when I had my first big fight with Luca.
Yeah.
You were there when I was trying to figure out my major, at the pop-up shop, and and now Like, you're always here without me even having to ask.
Well, to be clear, you did ask me to drive you.
Here.
To the airport.
You You said, "Aaron, can you drive me?" - And I said - Yes, I did, I said that.
Good, yeah.
[Laughs] Okay, come on.
Let's get you on this jet, you big-baller.
[Groans] [Sighs] Oh, my God.
You You bought the bag.
It looks so good! Oh, yeah.
I just wanted to show some love, you know.
- Mm-hmm.
- Wanted to support you.
Support me.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
I need you for the night I do I need you For the night I should probably go now.
You should go.
Let's not forget that I stayed by your side Even when he was away Oh, let's not forget who held you so tight Even when he let you go It's sad just to know that my time's not enough Oh, sir, I'm sorry, but no one is allowed beyond this point.
Please, I just have to talk to a passenger.
- It's, like It's gonna take a minute.
- I'm sorry.
It's ticketed passengers only.
I mean [sighs] her name is right here.
If so, let me go If so If so If so Let me go The reality about facing your fears is that you never know the outcome.
Let me go Whether you're scared of opening old wounds If so, let me go afraid you're losing the best thing you ever had or nervous about embarking on a new journey, the truth is, the only real way to conquer those fears is to fly right through them.
All right, so, based on our schedule, it says that I have the jacket on the 27th for the Mets-Dodgers game.
What? Hell no.
With all that open ketchup and mustard? Someone might spill their beers on Jackie.
Oh, no, no, no, no.
Yo, you gotta stop with this now, man.
Gentlemen.
Jackie.
What? I'm sorry.
I'm a proud parent.
As am I.
Meet Jacques Telphy.
Hey, Jacques.
- Wow.
- You know what? I don't want any part of this.
No.
You can have the jacket, full custody.
I'd rather be cold.
[Sighs] Us single-jacket owners have it so hard.
But it feels so good.
