Son of a Gun

1 Hey.
Can I sleep in here tonight? Yeah, of course.
I just can't believe I might never see him again.
Hey, man, we still good? So, you'll have the passport tomorrow? Great.
No, no, that's-that's that's great.
I'm-I'm on my way to get the eight grand now.
Okay, I'll see you tomorrow.
No! I'm sorry.
I'm just trying to figure out another way to get the money, you know.
Got like 300 bucks, and you can have my car.
But please, man.
Right, okay.
And Henry we're talking about King Henry now - Right.
- Henry wants to form an alliance between uh, with France.
Hello, Sam.
Is that short for "Samantha" or? Clean this by the end of the week.
Thank you.
Thank you very much.
I don't know why Nia trusts you guys.
But I don't.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Sam held you at gunpoint? Oh, yeah.
I mean, not, you know, exactly at gunpoint, but, like, she The gun was very present.
I mean, she could have killed me.
I'm like a sitting duck in there.
Hey, uh, this box just came for Jessica Damon.
I think it's, like, doggy medical supplies or something.
Oh, yeah.
Yup, that's me.
Uh, you can just toss it on the counter-ino.
Thank you so much.
We're just in the middle of a little executive huddle.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
Oh, my God, just bone her already.
- Just get it out of your system.
- I think that's really cute that you think I can have sex without feelings, but you know, if I if I have sex with that woman, I'm gonna well, I'll marry that woman.
- Okay.
- And so I can't think about having a relationship right now, considering Being a lesbian sounds exhausting.
You know, it certainly is on the wrist.
Guys, can we please circle back? What am I doing about the Sam situation? Nothing! There's no problem.
There's no situation.
The only situation is that we need to clean this money.
Nobody cares about Felix's safety.
I'll fake some more grooming truck transactions, and Murphy can make the deposit.
I have to go to the bank again? Yes.
I told you you have to make lots of little deposits.
- Oh, Jess? - Yeah.
Can you maybe, like, fix up the grooming truck so we can start blending in some real customers in there? What makes you think that I can fix up a truck? - Because you're - What? You always are the one that puts the ink in the printer.
- I'm not stereotyping.
- Oh, my God.
How are you feeling about Max? Worse.
It's so annoying.
Ever since he came back, I'm, like, in a constant st Whatever.
Uh, just don't don't make plans after work.
We're going out.
I I don't I can't feel like this anymore.
This is stupid.
License and registration, please.
Why? I'm just parked here.
This is private property, and we got a complaint.
Hey, Dean Cuisine! Please don't call me that.
Sorry, I'm just excited, man.
I got a call from some cop in New Castle.
Guess who they found sleeping in the parking lot.
- Max Parish.
- Bing! - I'm gonna go get him.
- Nah, thought we'd go together.
- I will go.
- I'm the one with the address, so I have to go with you it's crazy.
Come on.
I'll drive.
Okay, Murphy? I have to run an errand, so here's everything you need to make the deposit.
Please text me when that is done.
An errand? You run out of tampons or something? Hilarious, very funny.
Any more? You done? Nope.
Seriously, where are you going? I just have to, you know, take care of something, in light of recent events.
Don't worry about it.
Well, can you pick me up a box, too? And some maxi pads for nighttime.
You know how it is.
Cool joke.
Hey, I-I'm gonna take my lunch.
What time is it? I don't know, 11:00? Okay, don't you get here at, like, 10:00? I'm-I'm starving, man.
You can take your lunch at 12:30, okay? You know, I live with my sister.
The chick you have a giant crush on.
I don't have a giant crush on Oh, yeah, yes, well, she shows me your text messages.
By the way, you know that she can see when you're typing.
And then you delete it, and then you're starting again.
And then you delete it again.
Yeah, so I can pretty much tell Chels whatever I want, you know if you're cool or if you're a loser.
Yeah, she'll listen.
She's she's pretty insecure.
Well, you know, I mean, if you're starving, then I think, go ahead, take lunch.
Just try to keep it brief, okay? You guys were here yesterday, right? I wa Yeah.
Yes, uh, uh Our company is just really really killing it these days.
Good for you guys.
- Receipt? - Yeah, for taxes and and such.
Find outside.
Stay there.
Reagan! Reagan! Quiet! Hey.
Hey, Mom.
I was just upstairs looking for you.
What are you doing here? Just came by to say hi.
I miss you.
- Okay.
- What, I can't miss you? Hey, Reagan.
What's up? Hello.
Is there a person in charge we can speak with? I, uh, I don't really know who's in charge.
I just answer the phone.
Mm Good day, miss.
Is there any chance you can help us with some things? Uh, yeah, there's some pamphlets over there somewhere.
Oh, no, sorry, we're-we're not here about a guide dog.
We're we're from the IRS-CI.
What's that? IRS Criminal Investigation.
Is there a place we can chat? Of course.
Ooh, and is there a Jessica Damon here? - She's here.
- Great.
We'll want to speak to her as well.
I will find her for you my lord.
I'm Pam Clarke.
This is Josh Wallace.
Here's our card.
Oh, thank you.
We handle financial crimes relating to tax fraud, laundering and drug fronts.
Blah, blah, blah.
Uh, this is really just a formality.
Uh, it won't take long.
Normally, we'd do this over the phone, but CSI: Chicago here insisted that we come in person.
Yeah, we're happy to help.
Was there a an issue or something? Well, I noticed your tax exemption paperwork was refiled when your organization changed hands.
That-that-that triggered a background check on all of your cosigners on the account.
Which is standard protocol.
Yeah, yes.
Yeah, of course.
And that led me to you, Jessica Damon.
Oh, uh okay.
You have a suspicious activity report connecting you to a $10,000 cash withdrawal.
Yes, uh, yep.
Um I bought a ring.
For-for my girlfriend.
Yeah, I was gonna propose, but, um she broke up with me, so Well, sorry.
Oh, it's okay.
Um, I'll survive.
And in regards to Guiding Hope, your recent, uh, cash revenue increase, that-that caught my attention, as well.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, uh So, we, uh, we recently started a uh, dog grooming service.
And it's mobile.
- So we can go to the dogs.
- Oh.
- Dogs can come to us.
- Oh, it's on wheels.
And then all of our proceeds are going to our guide dog school, so Yes, we're gonna shampoo, conditioner.
It's all, you know And it's been a-awesome.
It's doing really well.
- Like, very - Oh, it's super successful.
Really, really well.
There you go engagement ring, dog grooming.
I think we're done here.
That's it? - Well, actually - Yeah, that's it.
Just send us the books to back that up when you have a chance.
Our address is on the card.
And you owe me lunch now.
Thanks very much for your time.
- Yes, of course.
- No problem.
Thank you.
Enjoy the States.
Are they gone? I think I'm gonna throw up.
So, come on, why are you really here? Do you need money? No, actually.
Uh, my company is doing extremely well.
And how are you? Good.
Still single, I presume? Actually, I, uh have a girlfriend.
No, you don't.
Shall I open up your favorite Bordeaux for you? Okay, she's not, like, officially my girlfriend, but I am seeing someone.
Pretty serious.
Oh, is it that, uh, Jess friend of yours? Nope, she's still gay.
Who isn't these days? Her name is Chelsea.
What does Chelsea do for work? She's a bartender.
Oh, Fee.
Unlike you and everyone else in this family, I like people for who they are, not for their pedigree.
Just use protection, okay? I don't need you knocking up some bartender, okay? - I need I need a gun.
- What? I need a gun.
That's why I'm here.
Okay, Mom? I need a gun.
Why? Because there's a vagrant in my building's alleyway threatening me, and I told the cops.
They don't do anything.
And I just want to feel safe, so here I am.
I'm proud of you.
You have a right to defend yourself.
Well, he couldn't have gone far.
So that means we're close? Wow, that's exciting.
Listen, uh, I'm gonna check the motels.
Why don't you search the mall and the surrounding wherever? You think he's in there? What, is he shopping? Just cover your bases, okay? I'll do that.
What would you say your most valuable trait is? I'm very punctual and, uh, loyal, I guess.
You don't have any food service experience? Uh, that's true.
But you didn't have food service experience till someone took a chance on you.
Um, you don't have any references on here.
Oh, that's 'cause the, uh, template I used didn't have a space for references.
Look, uh, Darnell Wait, uh I've been on ten of these.
I know my résumé sucks, but I really need a job.
I will work really hard.
I got to get back.
Do you think they bought it? They seemed to.
Nice lie, by the way, with the, uh, engagement ring.
Thank you.
I-I really I really do think we're fine, but we should just to be safe, we should just get the truck ready as soon as possible.
Yeah I know.
I-I'm trying.
- Where the hell is Felix? - Probably buying 17th-century armor for his nonexistent battle with Sam.
Just have your wifey help you.
No, I I can't, I can't be around her.
It's a phys-physical problem.
What was that? Yesterday, I masturbated to her Instagram.
Oh, Jess! I know, I'm gross.
What are you guys doing? - Nothing.
- Hey, uh, that dude's here to see you.
You got to be more specific.
Come on, Pretzel.
It's Josh Wallace.
We met earlier.
Have you got a second? So, what's up? Did you see I took out $20 from an ATM three years ago or something? No, it's my dog, Oliver.
He could use a bath and a haircut, so I thought I'd give this, uh, this grooming service a go.
Hi, Oliver.
Oh, I-I tied him to a bench outside.
I saw your "service dogs only" sign.
A rule follower.
Love it, um Yeah, why don't you, why don't you just give me a second.
I'm gonna go talk with Jess.
She she takes care of our grooming.
Oh, I-I'll grab Ollie.
Find outside.
Hey, Ollie.
Jess! Don't freak out.
Huh? The guy from the IRS is back.
And he brought his dog.
And he wants us to groom it.
Well, tell him that that we're busy, that we're booked up and that we're busy - or whatever! - No, he walked by the truck.
He must have seen that it was not in use.
You're just gonna have to groom the dog.
Where? We don't have a grooming truck, Murphy.
All that we have is a-a mini fridge and a cutting board.
And most importantly, I don't know how to groom a dog! Don't they teach you that in vet school? They do not.
She know She knows how to do it.
Your spank bank Sterling? Yes.
I looked at her résumé.
She worked at PetSmart for a year.
Just put your boner away and get her to help you.
- No, I don't - Come with me! Murphy I don't know what more to tell you.
- Hi again.
- Hi.
Jess here is gonna take Oliver back and give him a nice cut and a bath.
Oh, thanks for squeezing him in.
Of course.
We had a last-minute cancellation, so Hi, mister.
Okay, well, we're gonna take good care of you.
Come on.
Well, I didn't even ask how much it is.
- 30.
It's 30.
- That's it? That's why we're so popular.
So you can just, uh, you can just come back in about an hour or so, and he'll be all nice and pretty.
Well, I'd like to stay, if that's all right.
And maybe you could give me a tour? Be delighted.
Okay, now the pistol has more mag capacity, but the revolver has fewer jam issues.
Which one do you want? The one with fewer jam issues, I guess.
Do you need me to show you how to use it? No.
I think I got it.
- Are you sure, now? - Mom, I got it.
Thank you.
That cold front that hit Northern Illinois last night is still going strong.
We will be dealing with a large amount of snow and sleet with highs today in the low 30s.
Freezing temperatures Hey, is there, uh is there anywhere close I can order a pizza from? Thanks.
Hi, Oliver.
I, uh, thought this was a grooming van.
Uh, it is.
Um, well, I'm making it one.
Yeah, that guy is, like, a really big donor, so we may have inflated the readiness of the van.
So you lied to your donor? Yeah.
Okay, good.
'Cause that makes me feel - a lot better about lying on my résumé.
- What? - What do you mean? - Mmm, I sort of never, uh, worked at PetSmart.
I just, I really needed this job.
Hey, we'll-we'll figure it out.
How hard could it be? Lavender hand soap.
We're good.
Uh, and then this is our training area, where we, you know, train the dogs and stuff.
About how many dogs do you raise a year? Uh, a hundred or so.
Oh, a hundred.
'Cause I read, as technology is advancing more and more, people won't really need guide dogs.
What with Uber and Postmates and all that.
Not here.
Well, that's the tour.
Well, I guess I'll just wait here until Ollie's done.
Do you want a pop or something? A what? A soda.
I'm starving.
Max, it's over.
You're under arrest.
Stop! Whoa, whoa! Come on, man.
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you - in a court of law.
- Yeah, I got it.
You have the right to an attorney.
If you can't afford an attorney, one will be provided.
Don't touch me.
Oh, you gotta be kidding me.
Do you have service? Does it look like I have a phone? It's not gonna work.
Can you shut up for a second? Or what, you're gonna kill me? What did you just say? Or do you reserve that kind of treatment for teenagers? Hmm? Hello?! Help! Can anyone hear me? We're on the elevator.
Do many clients come by, or is it just mainly employees? No, they're usually here.
Yeah, uh, we're just between litters.
But once we get some new puppies, then there'll be lots of lots of, uh, clients and-and puppy raisers and trainers.
It's-it's a whole thing.
It's really special.
And do most people who have lost their sight, they use guide dogs? Most people that come here.
And you give the dogs away for free? I-I read your brochure.
Yeah, we don't we don't believe in-in in, you know, charging people for such a beautiful gift.
How do you afford it? We have a lot of donors and, uh, the grooming truck, which is doing really well, like I said.
And I'm gonna go check what's taking so long.
Okay, Pretzel, find outside, find outside.
What? He's not a frying pan.
Do you have a Do you have a better suggestion? How dare you.
This is my official Guiding Hope uniform.
Felix told me it's very expensive.
Mm-hmm, I'm sure he did.
- I'm-I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
- Ow.
Ow, ow.
- Let me see.
- That actually hurt.
What is taking so long? We're just We're just grooming.
Well, groom faster.
Mary Poppins is asking me a million questions.
We should probably finish this.
Can you stop that, please? You know, I can help you, Max.
I can ease your sentence if you give me information about Nia's organization.
You still there? - Hello? - Oh, yeah, sorry.
I-I nodded.
I should've realized not-not to do that.
It's fine.
They're almost done, so Can I ask you a question? Another one? Sure.
What's being blind like? What's being blind like? Um, like how do I match my socks, or am I depressed all the time? I'm sorry.
I know.
I shouldn't have asked.
It's okay.
People ask me that a lot.
Um, I don't know how to answer, besides just my my norm.
I have to be honest, I'm-I'm I'm kind of amazed by you.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I - That's why you came back.
- What? You want to have sex with me.
- I'm sorry? - No.
It's okay.
You think I came here to have sex with you? Yeah, you did.
You looked at my photo on the website, and you thought, "Hmm.
Never boned a blind chick.
" Here you are.
What? What? That's highly offensive.
I definitely don't want to do that.
And I wouldn't prey on someone with a disability.
Come on.
I-I have to go.
Hang on, please.
Don't It's I didn't I Ah Aw Hello.
That guy could put us in jail.
Yeah, I thought I was giving him what he wanted.
What he wanted?! Hey.
Did you guys have an actual customer? Let's go in your office.
That guy was from the IRS? Why? Why? Why? Why? What was he doing here? Why did you groom his dog? He was looking into why we have so much excess cash revenue.
So I told him it was because of the success of our grooming truck.
Yeah, and then he brought his dog in to get groomed.
And then once he realized that we didn't know what we were doing, he stormed out? No, he stormed out because I thought he wanted to have sex with me, but apparently he didn't.
You tried to have sex with someone that can put us in prison? Of course, because she can't keep it in her pants.
I will fix it! I leave for three hours, and everything falls apart.
- Felix, where were you? - Where did you go? You bought a gun? - What?! - Are you kidding me? I borrowed a gun from my mom.
You got a mom gun? It's a It was my dad's gun.
It's a dad gun.
To protect us.
Felix you know that having a gun makes you more likely to be the victim of gun violence.
Yes, I do know that, but it makes me feel safe, okay? You are not having a gun in this building.
- I have to put it somewhere.
- Well, then, I don't - Where? Where do you - Wait, wait.
I don't know.
Put it in the truck.
I'll show you where.
Murphy, um, you have to deal with the guy from the IRS.
- Yeah.
- Like, now.
Say more obvious things, Felix.
- This will work, right? - Sure.
Okay, let's go.
No way.
Trey? I almost didn't recognize you with that bald-ass head.
It's been forever.
I know.
How's your sister? She's good, she's good.
Two kids now.
- Wow.
We getting old, huh? - Yeah.
Old as hell.
Yo, what's up with the suit, man? Nia got y'all dressing up for work now? Actually, I don't work for Nia anymore.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
I mean, I work for Josiah.
I can put it in a word for you.
Nah, nah, I'm good.
I'm trying to get out the whole game, you know? - For real? - Yeah.
I never thought I'd hear you say that.
- Look, give me a call.
- All right.
- Let's go grab a beer.
All right? - All right, for sure.
All right, man.
Listen, don't do that thing you did last time.
- That was you.
- You kept me waiting for, like, four weeks! - Stop! Stop! - Four and a half weeks, brah.
Come on! Hello? Wait.
Seriously? Yeah.
Yeah, I-I can start tomorrow.
All right.
Thank you very much.
All right, thank you.
All right, bye.
I'm starving.
You couldn't have arrested me after I got my pizza? You really want to spend the next ten years in prison? Stop.
Just stop trying.
I'm never gonna work with you.
After what you did to Murphy.
You know, you should stop being so loyal to Murphy.
You know, I I didn't want to tell you this.
Tell me what? The day after you left, Murphy sort of threw herself at me.
That's not true.
We had sex.
She has this cute little birthmark on her right hip.
Sort of shaped like a moon.
I think we have more in common than you think.
Hang tight.
We're gonna get you out.
Please tell me we don't have to groom another dog.
I want to show you something.
Easier to bathe the dogs in.
- What are you doing? - I know your friends think you can fix up this truck because you're gay, but you, uh, obviously can't.
No, no, I can't.
Can you? Because I don't know.
But, uh, it's an excuse to hang out with you.
And once we actually learn how to cut dog hair, we can do it here.
And there's, like, storage everywhere in this thing.
For shampoo and-and stupid doggy bandanas or whatever.
What? Come here.
Yeah? Max, you have a chance to start over.
Don't throw your life away for her.
I know that you think that she loves you, but Murphy is incapable of loving anyone but herself.
Look, I know you have something on Nia.
Something big enough to put her away.
You wouldn't have been such a valuable informant to Sarah if you didn't, so what is it? I know where Nia's stash house is.
How? Someone in your position would ever know that.
They gave me a burner when I started, and I got a text from someone in her organization.
It wasn't meant for me.
Does Nia know about this? No one does.
I will tell you under one condition.
When we get out of this elevator, I want you to get me a new passport.
I need a fresh start.
Totally clean record.
I'll tell you everything I know the second you deliver that to me.
Okay, but no one can know I found you today.
No one.
You run, it's over.
No deal.
Got it? Got it.
Freeze! Max Parish, you're under arrest.
What's up, D? You can call it a hunch, I guess.
Thank you.
- Huh? - What the hell happened? I told you to stay at the mall.
Man, I didn't hear from you for a few hours, and I thought you might've been in trouble and needed backup.
So I tracked your car.
Look, I know what I'm doing.
You can trust me.
Thank you.
Of course.
I got your back, always.
I told you.
I keep telling you that.
I don't know how many times I got to keep telling you I got your back, but you got to utilize me.
Yeah? Murphy Mason is here to see you.
Hi, Murphy.
How's the rest of your day going? Uh, it's fine.
Um, what are you doing here? Look, I, uh, I came to apologize about earlier.
I shouldn't, I shouldn't have said those things.
- It's okay.
- It's not, but I am just in a bad place romantically or whatever.
- Seemed like it.
- And I'm sorry about your dog.
Our groomer is new and overwhelmed, and we're just working out some kinks.
- Yeah.
- So again, I'm sorry.
So are we good? 'Cause - 'Cause I apologized for the sex thing.
- You did.
- And the dog thing.
- I know.
And I answered all of your questions.
- That's correct.
- But I still feel weirdness? No weirdness.
Then what is it? Okay, look When Guiding Hope came across my desk, I started looking into what you do.
And it should have been a five-minute phone call, but, well, I had to come see you guys because I'm sort of, uh I'm sort of losing my eyesight.
And I'm gonna keep losing my eyesight.
That sucks.
That sucks.
Well, I thought it would make uh, make it easier, you know, coming in with work, but I see.
Um, well, did it? No.
But hey, look, a-at least I met a blind person.
You're actually the first person I've told.
But I-I used my position inappropriately, and I'm sorry.
Well, then, we're even.
'Cause of the whole inappropriate thing.
I-Is it okay if I come by again? I mean And not as someone going through your finances or whatever, but I just well, I don't I don't really have someone I can talk to about this.
More to clean for next week.
What's up with you? What? You're just not so jumpy.
Thank you.
I thought we were going to the Linsmore.
I changed my mind.
I don't think having sex is gonna make me feel better, so I'm just gonna be sad.
And I'm sleeping here again.
Unless you were planning on sexy time with Sterling's Instagram.
I actually don't need Instagram.
I can scroll through the memories of the real thing.
What? I thought you said you couldn't date anyone right now.
- I'm not I'm not dating her.
- No.
- We're not.
- We're just casually Jess, no.
This is a disaster.
I can compartmentalize.
I've watched you do it my whole life.
Yeah, I sort of suck at it right now.
What's this? Nia Bailey's old money guy got arrested again.
She's got a new one.
Yeah, I'm on it.
