Imposters (2017) s02e10 Episode Script

See You Soon, Macaroon

1 Previously on "Imposters" The Doctor wants the ring.
- That's it? - That's it.
Just get the saffron diamond ring, deliver it to the Doctor, and then you can go your bumbling little way.
Easy-peasy.
See you soon, macaroon.
I'm Shelly.
Shelly Cohen.
I'm fairly confident you know my ex-wife.
You're Lenny Cohen's husband? - Ex-husband.
- Ex-husband.
Bingo.
You know this man I work for, the Doctor? I'm gonna kill him.
We're gonna find out who he is and what makes him tick, and before we deliver him to the FBI, we'll take him for everything he's got.
- Agent Simons? - Mr.
Bloom.
You know the same truth that I do.
None of us can move on until this thing is done.
Tell me what you're thinking.
There's this Northeast Biannual Conference of Orthopedic Surgeons in two weeks, Niagara Falls.
There's a very prestigious award being given away - called the Egan Award.
- Jeffery? The Doctor thinks he's winning.
This is Harry Price.
The committee has decided to reward your understanding with this year's Egan Award.
I'd be delighted.
Meanwhile, we'll infiltrate his headquarters.
- Looks like the basement.
- Top left pocket.
I think it's his father.
Wipe our info, steal the money, and then we'll plant the ring on him, deliver him to the Feds easy-peasy.
Any questions? No questions, great.
How is making all the money we need in three days not smart? Yo, I think he's actually getting off on this.
Nobody who gets conned is innocent.
They all wanted something for cheap.
Okay, now you're starting to sound like our ex-wife.
- Do you have the ring? - It's within reach.
Good.
And Max? He doesn't suspect a thing.
None of them do.
I know what you're doing.
- Yeah, what's that? - You're gonna kill the Doctor.
We have a problem.
There's a famous quote from one of my favorite writers.
"No man, for any considerable period, "can wear one face to himself "and another to the multitude "without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.
" And that's the problem, isn't it? If you play dress-up long enough, you're bound to get lost in your disguise.
Like passing out in your Halloween costume and not recognizing yourself in the morning.
And sure, there's a certain comfort in hiding behind a mask, a relief that we don't have to be ourselves all the time, but does it get to a point that you forget who you really are? I mean, I fell for you in Mexico, and it felt true, but you and I, we lied to each other from the moment we met.
About our lives, our names.
We even stole from each other.
But what if my heart was lying too? How can we even know what we actually feel anymore? Sorry, I didn't hear.
What? You kidding me? I was just pouring my heart Just kidding, baby dog eyes.
I heard you.
When today's over, no matter what happens, meet me at the ferry boats at 5:00.
I promise I'll be there.
You're saying that like I speak Spanish.
You know I don't.
I said that I'd think about it.
Don't you know that a man being rich is like a girl being beautiful? You wouldn't marry a girl just because she's pretty, but my goodness, doesn't it help? - You're real good.
- Thank you.
- Megan.
- Norma Jean.
How do you do? I like doing the Marilyn thing, but sometimes the lines get real fuzzy, you know? I'm with some nice guy.
Who does he want to be with, me or Marilyn? You know, a very smart woman once told me that each of us has an authentic self.
Sometimes we lose touch with it, right? But the trick is, you have to find it.
Sure, but how do you find it if you didn't know what it was to begin with? I like your look.
You could go far, Marilyn.
Thank you, Marilyn.
But I'm done playing dress-up.
I'm getting out of the game.
I'm getting out for good.
Yes, after the reception, we'll video conference.
It's time I met these bumblers face-to-face.
And, Sally, in terms of the FBI, let's be ready to run the Periwinkle option.
Yes.
I'll be in touch.
Welcome, Dr.
Hull.
I'm Alessandra from the OSA, Northeast Chapter.
I've been assigned to take care of you during the convention.
So nice to meet you.
It's simple: Richard covers for Maddie with the real Egan winner, and everything's covered.
I think we should tell Sally and Max that she wants to kill the Doctor.
We tell 'em, and Sally might just go and blow Maddie's brains out.
I'm not kidding.
She wouldn't.
She loves Maddie.
Hey, close the curtains.
The view isn't right.
Yeah, we all love Maddie.
Guys I have a confession to make.
It's been driving me crazy.
I broke the code in the worst way.
I slept with her.
I slept with Maddie.
- Oh, man.
- Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! - God damn it! - Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! Ah! You don't seem mad.
- I'm $100 not mad.
- You made a bet? At Langmore Cabin, dude.
I said you guys would be humping it out within a week's time.
Just under the wire, Ez.
Oh, my God, I've totally been freaking out.
Nah, I'm totally over her.
Yeah, totally.
Me too.
Uh, yeah, you're both terrible liars.
- Mostly kind of - 99% over her.
- Sort of over Cece.
- Right.
I mean, one of us was bound to sleep with her at some point.
Thanks, I appreciate your understanding.
So? - What? - Well, Jesus, dude.
- How was the sex? - What? It's the least you can do.
How was it? You're shitting me.
I'm no, I'm not Must have been weird.
That's a lot of people in bed together.
- What do you mean? - Yeah.
Old cutie-pie, shoe salesman Ezra, hardened con artist Ezra, Ava, Saffron, Maddie.
That's a lot of people having sex.
Yeah, it's kind of hot.
- Or possibly - Not hot at all.
Like, totally confusing.
So many boobs.
Yeah.
That's what I thought.
Not fun.
- Does Sofia know? - Yeah, man.
That's who you should be having sex with.
It's, uh, complicated.
Come on.
Get it together, Ez.
Always forward.
Yeah, Maddie's clearly moving on in her own demented way.
- Maddie what now? - Nothing.
- Nothing.
- Nothing.
That's very convincing.
Let's get going.
It's showtime.
All right, everybody.
So we have the food platters, we have the drink platters, we have the doors to go in and the doors to go out, and that is the number one thing to remember, ladies.
Do not go in the out-door and do not go out the in-door, but let's keep all the full trays going out and the empty trays coming in, and remember, a stationary Marilyn is a not-doing-her-job Marilyn, right? All right, my beauties.
Chop, chop.
I used to think that life could be Okay, there he is.
So predictable - Excuse me.
- Hmm? Is that bald guy over there Jeffery Hull? - That's him.
- Ah, you were right.
I heard he's winning the Egan.
No, I happen to know Sheila Berman has it locked up.
That's not what Harry Price said.
See, not only that, a woman I know on the national board tells me they're eyeing Hull to step in for Kenner.
- You're kidding me.
Dina? - Yeah? These guys are saying that Hull is getting the Egan Award, and he's replacing Kenner.
He's replacing Kenner? Is that true? Carolyn, Hull's gonna win the Egan.
He's replacing Kenner.
I hear Hull is I think we should go say hello.
It seems they've done a very good job - of keeping this award a secret.
- Yes.
Jeffery.
Hello there.
Harry, yes.
Good to see you.
- Ah.
- Oh, my God.
Is that your scalpel hand? What happened? I was attacked.
Oh, no.
How awful.
Yeah, well, stuff happens, Jeffery, sooner or later to all of us.
Hey, um, have you picked out a spot to display your Egan? Excuse us, Dr.
Hull.
I just wanted to introduce myself and my colleague.
I'm Sugith John.
This is Dina Tham.
Hi.
We are such fans of your theories on implant removal.
It's interesting you should be here right now, because Dr.
Price, about six months ago, ran a very interesting seminar where most people see only the surface of things, the bones that - So far, so good.
- All right, player.
Time to do your thing.
In and out.
No biggie.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
Hey! Hey, lady, could you please watch where you're whoa! Lady, that is highly inappropriate beh Jules, God damn it.
Nice ass.
I just wanted to make sure I could get away with it.
Don't want you-know-who to recognize me.
Hmm, Dr.
Sheila Berman, actual Egan winner, 6:00.
6:00.
Behind you.
- Don't turn.
Don't turn.
- Don't turn around.
Sorry, sorry.
I'm a little nervous.
I'm not quite as strong as you in the disguise department.
You'll do great.
Let's go.
That topic led to a very serious, lively discussion.
Yes, and I can see both sides.
A thing of value in this world.
Absolutely.
Well, look at it my way.
Most people see only the surface.
Do you like football? Do you mean football or American football? I've always been interested in what lies underneath.
American football is very To me, a body a body - Oh, my God.
I am so sorry.
- I'm sorry.
Excuse me! Like a bull in a china shop today.
- I'm sorry.
Are you okay? - Two left feet.
- Oh, my God.
- That's okay.
- Klutz.
- What was that? - One moment.
- What was that? Here is some fresh champagne for you.
- Thank you.
No harm done.
- I'm so sorry.
It is our job - Nice work.
- Thanks.
Hey, did I see Sofia flirting with Harry Price? Seriously? No, how could you even know? She's not - Shh, shh.
- Oh, yeah? What's that? Jeff Hull is winning the Egan.
Are you shitting me? I was told I mean, I'm not supposed to say, but Well, that's what I thought, but I jammed in three hips and a spinal fusion yesterday to be here.
I need to talk to Price.
Where is he? Over there.
With Hull.
Goddamn traitor.
Dr.
Berman.
Sorry to bother you.
There's an emergency call for you in the lobby, something about post-op and a spinal fusion infection.
- Sepsis maybe.
- Jesus.
I'm not sure, yeah.
- But experience is - Oh, my goodness.
Dr.
Jeffery Hull? - Uh, hello, Doctor - Doctor? Hah! I wish.
No, just a fan, you could say.
Shannon Stepan of July-Yards Clamps and Catheter.
I've been pushing the company for three years on intramedullary nails, all because of your amazing article.
Oh, my.
Oh, well, that's very kind.
I can't believe I'm meeting you.
Sorry, everyone.
Sorry, I'm fangirling.
Ugh, so embarrassing.
I'm gonna get a drink, but I'll be back.
Bye.
I don't have fans like that.
- Do you have any fans? - No.
Yeah, my publishers - Good work.
- You too.
For a minute there, I thought Oh, my God.
What is she doing? - What are you doing? - Let go.
Alessandra, what are you doing? I'm so sorry.
That Marilyn tripped me.
Hey! God damn it.
What are you doing? I have to take a dump.
Is that okay with you? Damn it.
Maddie's not answering.
No word from the others.
Where are they? They've got a minute.
They'll be here.
- You all right? - Yeah.
Yeah, I'm fine.
I've just been dreading this next part, you know? We've had quite the run, huh, Max? Don't get sentimental on me, Sal.
We're back in the game.
Just getting started, right? Sure thing, Maxie.
I stopped Berman from getting to the Doctor.
Maddie showed up, almost out of nowhere.
We thought that we had her cornered, then she did a disappearing act Dressed as Marilyn Monroe.
She's making a play for the Doctor.
What do you mean, Maddie's making a play? - She's trying to kill him.
- Bullshit.
She has a bunch of drugs and syringes, so yeah.
In other news, we got both the Doctor's basement keys.
Wow, that's something.
And his fingerprints.
Ooh, that's another something.
So what do we do about Maddie? We be better than her.
All right.
Phase two.
All right.
Breathe like you're in Burlington and talk as little as possible.
Hail, hail.
The gang's all here.
Hello, Doctor.
How goes all things Vermont? And there it is.
That's that, then.
So let's talk about what happens next.
What happens next is, we never see you or hear from you again.
As promised.
I don't recall promising anything.
I remember saying if you did this job, your families would be safe.
- Uh, no.
- And now they are.
As long as you keep working for me.
Absolutely not.
- How dare you? - Shut your mouth.
You disrupted my operation, stole what is mine.
Simply put, kids, I f own you.
Welcome to the real game, kids.
I'm afraid that's how it goes.
Just do your job and stay loyal.
For instance, don't try to take money from me.
That is a no-no.
Right, Max? Well, that money was for you, Doctor.
To make up for the Heller losses and the Shh.
Max, we've been through this.
- And Sally? - Yes, Doctor? We've had troubles in the past, but lately things are going well with us, yes? - Yes.
- Good.
My biggest worry at the moment is really what the FBI knows, how close they've gotten, and if Maddie is working with them.
It's unlikely.
I really think you're safe on that front.
Mm.
I'm not convinced.
I think it would be best, safest, if I disappeared.
All right.
How can we help? At Maddie's wedding, you looked so much like me, Max.
Quite remarkable.
That could be useful.
In fact, you could pretend to be me again.
Sure.
Sure, what's the play? The play is simple.
The Doctor needs to die.
- What? - Sally.
Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Sit down! Sally, finish it.
Well done.
Jesus Christ, she just killed him.
She just shot him.
She just freaking killed him in cold blood! Just just breathe.
Just breathe.
He was like the uncle I never had.
I know, honey, I know.
Ow, ow, ow, ow! Jesus.
Sorry, Maxie.
He was strong and kind And smart and sexy.
- Did you say sexy? - What the Whoa! Sorry, kids.
It had to be done.
- Why would you do that to us? - We're either in on this or not! We're supposed to be a team! All right, easy now.
The simpler the better, and reactions like those - Jesus.
- They can't be bought.
We have him where we want him, feeling cocky and thinking he's in the clear.
- And I love you too, kid.
- Screw you.
Who's ready for phase three? - You good? - Man, I invented this move.
Okay, then tell me who you work for.
Dude, I work for the Federal Burr Screw off, man.
Federal Bureau of Investigation.
We have a search warrant for the house of Dr.
Jeffery Hull.
- Screw you.
- Hey.
Okay, so I watch a little online porn.
It's the 21st century.
Sir, we're not here about the, uh, porn.
Oh.
Well, how can I help you boys? My son's a good man.
He took me in when I had nowhere else to go, and he really didn't have to.
I wasn't a great father.
Just because you were a crap father doesn't mean your son had to become a criminal.
He could have figured it out.
Yeah, don't bother.
He keeps it locked.
Huh.
Guess he left it open today.
Yeah, nice prints.
Very clean.
That is so cool.
Yeah.
Don't mess with the wig.
You'll rip the lace there.
It's so itchy.
Presto.
When he was a kid, he never had any friends.
Didn't have a feel for it.
Spent all his time in his room practicing magic tricks, but that only made people dislike him more.
- Any luck? - Nothing.
Sorry for the inconvenience, sir.
Let your son know the FBI came to visit.
Hey, let me tell you something.
The man your son is? That's not on you.
He made his own choices.
- Have a nice day.
- Yeah, you too.
- What was that about? - Nothing.
How'd it go down there? Oh, God.
I feel like I know you.
Do I know you? Uh, I feel like I'd remember if we'd met.
Oh, why is that? Do tell.
Well, you have a certain flair.
Indeed.
Did you ever frequent the Ujiki Club in Tokyo? - No.
- Anton's in Milan? Sorry.
The Sporleder Club.
Berlin.
3:00 in the morning.
Untz, untz, untz, untz? Must have been my doppelganger.
Doppel Do you remember why she was there? I'm looking to make some life changes.
You're an odd little bird.
What brings you to this strange hotel in this strange little city? Orthopedic convention.
Hot stuff.
Mm, hot stuff.
I happen to have a friend speaking at the convention.
See you soon, macaroon.
Good to see you, Mr.
Cohen.
Please come in.
Here and now.
Fancy a little girl talk? What do you want, Maddie? Come on, do you really have to use that tone? It's so cold.
- We're on the same team.
- Really? Then why'd you take a powder and disappear? Talk about cold.
But you were always prone to going it alone.
I don't really see it that way.
We both have the same interests, the same goal.
- To bring him down.
- Except you want to kill him.
And you what, want to see him live? After everything he's done to you? Death would be too easy and too forgiving, and dead or alive I will never forgive him.
And he won't ever forgive you.
He conned all of us.
Took everything, our family, any sense of self-respect.
He took me in the prime of my youth and turned me into what? You were like a mother to me.
Watching it all go down.
There were plenty of times I stuck my neck out for you, kid.
Don't bother.
I get it.
I get it.
I get it all.
- Something to drink, ladies? - No, thank you.
I won't be staying long.
I need your help, Sal.
Let's finish this.
I should shoot you right now.
Go for it.
All right.
I still have that phone you gave me.
I'm gonna keep it on just in case.
If you change your mind, give me a call.
Otherwise I'll see you in the game.
Hello there, it's time for me to take you to the Green Room.
Of course.
Come in.
I'll be right with you.
Make yourself comfortable.
It's a very exciting night for you.
Yes, it certainly is.
Hello.
Hello.
And who might you be? - Alessandra.
- Shelly Cohen.
- Nice to meet you.
- Is it? You seem a little tense.
No, no.
- I was just - You were just Shall we? Alessandra from the conference, Shelly Cohen.
- A man of many talents.
- That's me.
The Green Room is just this way.
They will let us know when they are ready to take you backstage for the award presentation.
Ah.
A tad chiffon for my taste, but it'll do.
I'm gonna go to the ballroom and make sure everything feels just right.
How are you this evening? Hello, Dad.
Um, I'm afraid now is not a good time to talk The FBI was here.
I've been When? all morning.
What were they looking for? Did they leave a Okay, okay.
Don't do anything, you hear me? I'll take care of it.
Hello? - Sally? - Yes, Doctor.
I've decided to take that vacation we discussed.
I want you to call the bank right away.
- Yes, that's right.
- Same password? Periwinkle.
They'll know what to do.
Of course.
Right away.
I'd like a cup of tea.
I thought we arranged to have some goddamn tea ready.
I did.
I don't know what happened.
Sorry.
Right away.
The consequences of our deeds are amplified, for better or for worse, when acknowledged in front of our colleagues and our friends with such ceremony, which is why it gives me such great pleasure to announce the winner of this year's Egan Award, Dr.
Sheila Berman.
Congratulations, Sheila.
Did you win an award too? Shit.
Well, the gang's all here.
The Doctor has the ring, and he's in the Green Room.
Let's end this thing.
Come in.
I have tea for you, sir.
Where's the girl? She checking on the time for your speaking.
I make special plate for you.
Here you go.
Ow! There you go.
You once told me time has a way of answering all questions.
You're about out of time.
Do you have any answers? I didn't think so.
In a moment, I'm going to take the tape off your mouth, and then I'm going to leave.
I want you to count to 100, then you can scream for help all you want.
I told you it was this way.
You guys never listen to me.
Start counting.
Dr.
Hull? Jesus Christ.
I wonder why Maddie didn't take this.
Yeah, I don't think she cared about the ring anymore.
Hello? Is anybody there? That's Sofia.
Ah.
That looked like it hurt.
No, no, no.
I'll help you.
Ah, come on.
I don't know why the hell I'm doing this, but go! - Jules - Maddie, go! Run! Run! And you're welcome! I know where I know you from.
You remind me of my ex-wife.
Likewise.
How can I help you, sir? Yes, I'd like to open my safety deposit box.
Time to cash that treasury bond and go on that Alaska cruise I keep talking about.
Of course, Dr.
Hull.
And your password, if you don't mind? - Periwinkle.
- Excellent.
We got the call a few minutes ago.
It should be ready.
Right this way.
Here we are, sir.
Everything should be all set for you.
You got to love the modern world.
We don't background-check each and every woman who wants to be Marilyn Monroe, okay? I just need to see a list of the OSA Marilyns.
Thank you.
Megan Jones.
Please make sure that all overhead bins are closed, and remember that in consideration of your fellow passengers, cell phone use is prohibited.
Rochester will be our first stop.
A little side trip to Niagara Falls? Yeah, yeah.
For work, though.
Not for fun.
- How'd it go? - Good, good.
Although I thought I had this one guy cornered, and then boom, he has a massive coronary and dies before I can put cuffs on him.
Oh, shame.
You know, I never saw you as a murderer.
- No? - No.
Hmm.
Not even gonna deny it? You still think you have me all figured out.
Well, maybe I do.
I mean, at one point you told me I would never catch you, and yet here we are.
Yes, here we are, except I didn't kill the Doctor.
I didn't steal the ring, and I'm sure as hell not going to prison.
You finished? For now.
Good.
Because there's something that I've always wanted to say to you.
What's that? You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to an attorney.
If you can't afford one, the court will appoint one for you.
That's not bad for a dishonest day's work, huh? This is a lot of money.
- A lot a lot.
- A super-duper lot.
The drives are wiped.
The Doctor is no longer.
How many burner phones did you take - from the basement? - About 20.
Yeah, make sure they all go away for good.
I don't want any of the crews to get burned.
What about Sally's cut? When I find her, I'll give it to her.
Should we trust you? You want to try to take it from me? Nah.
I respect my elders.
Be good.
I'll try, but that sounds awfully boring.
No crying.
No crying that we're splitting up or that our ex-wife is quite possibly a murderer? Either.
I'd bet good money that it was Sally, not Maddie.
Yeah, well, you just got rich.
Don't be stupid with your money.
Do you think it was Maddie? No comment.
Can I tell you something ridiculous? Even after Seattle, even when I thought I was over her, Maddie still defined me, you know? Like, I had no idea who I could be without her, and that turned out to be An enormous, life-shattering lie? Right, and now it's like, I don't know who I'm gonna be without you guys.
Yeah, ridiculous.
Okay, no matter what, six months from today, we meet in Brooklyn at the coffee shop below my old apartment.
- Yeah, I like that.
- I'm in.
I love you stupid idiots.
We love you too, dummy.
I thought we weren't gonna cry.
Excuse me.
Are you Mr.
Baby Dog Eyes? Oh, uh, yeah, I am.
I think.
This is for you.
Did you know the first person to go over the Niagara Falls in a barrel was a 63-year-old lady? I did, actually, and she made it too.
I, uh I got your note.
Is that what you wanted? Yeah, and something else too.
And what would that be? Come here.
I'll tell you all about it.
- Hello? - Hello, Doctor? It's Ernie.
I have an update on Cincinnati.
Hello? Hello, Doctor? Go ahead, Ernie.
I'm listening.
