Deal Me In

1 Murphy, what are we gonna do about the drugs? Forget about the drugs.
We're sort of dealing with something.
I thought you were leaving town.
Oh, I tried.
But the money I hid in the lake house wasn't there.
So, I got caught.
Do you know how long you're gonna be in here for? Probably a few years.
That's not that bad.
We can make this work.
What? It's just, ever since you came back, I feel like there's something wrong with me.
I-I I think about you all the time.
Murphy, stop.
I know it was you.
You were the only one who knew that money was there.
And suddenly Guiding Hope is back in business? And if you even try to lie to me I didn't take it.
Jess and Felix found it, and I didn't think you needed it.
Of course you didn't.
Because you only ever think about yourself.
Why didn't you just tell me? I would have had a ten-hour lead on Dean if I hadn't gone back for that money and now look where I am.
So, what, this is my fault? You committed a crime.
Honestly, Murphy I'm done.
Are you leaving? Where are you going? Take care of yourself.
- Max? - (DOOR BUZZES) - Wait, Max.
- (DOOR SLIDING) Max! Max! Mmm.
Where'd you, um, where'd you throw my underwear? No idea.
Stay naked.

I I got that for my ex, well for me to wear for my ex.
Um But we never used it.
So, it's (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) Oh, you never used it? No.
I've actually never used one before.
That's just plain silly.
I'm just gonna put this on here.

You got that on really quick.
(BOTH LAUGH) (SNIFFLES, SIGHS) Jess? JESS (CHUCKLES): Uh yeah? Are you busy? A little bit.

It's just to make me feel safe around you.
(DOOR CLOSES) (SIGHING) (GUNFIRE) ♪ Max Parish got arrested.
Max is alive? It would appear that way.
Change that.
Find me Darnell.
) It ain't as bad as you think.
I have a wife and kid they only let me talk to once a day.
So, I paid a guy 400 bucks for this.
400 bucks for that? Thought you said this place wasn't that bad.
(CHUCKLES SOFTLY) ♪ Hey, do you know who that guy was? Mike something.
Dude's a lunatic.

♪ (KNOCKING) (POUNDING) Who is it? DEAN: It's Dean.
I need to talk to you.
Go away! It's about Max.
He's in trouble.
Come on, Murphy! Open the door! Whatever you have to say, you say it out there.
(SIGHS) You need to get Max to talk to me.
Why on earth would I get Max to talk to you? Otherwise, he's going to die.
What are you talking about? He-he flipped on Nia.
She wanted him dead on the outside.
You think she doesn't have guys inside who could finish the job? Like it or not, I'm the only one who can protect him.
Okay, then protect him! That's not how it works.
He has to tell me what he knows.
You're unbelievable! You know, I didn't have to come here.
Look, Max knows where Nia's stash is.
That'll give me the leverage to have him moved to a prison out of state.
But (STAMMERS) he won't talk to me, and I thought maybe you could convince him.
I'm just trying to do the right thing.
You're such a good person.
Okay, Murphy, I tried.
Hey, uh, do you think I can get paid early this week? No.
You can get paid on Friday.
What's the difference if I get paid today or Friday? Because we can't afford it.
That's why.
Chelsea says you're rich.
- Yeah.
- (DOOR OPENS) I a Well, you just have to wait - until Friday, okay? - (JESS GIGGLING) Oh, look who decided to show up.
Yeah, hi.
Sorry, sorry.
- I know.
- Traffic was brutal.

We just ran into each other in the parking lot.
Jess, don't.
Murphy already told me you guys are, you know What? I know you guys are, you know Whoa.

What do you need to talk to me about? Oh, I just wanted to give you your cut for you and Murphy.

Thank God.
Okay, great.
Here you go.
This is it? Yeah.
Don't even get me started.
Sam, such a dick.
I'm gonna get some coffee.
♪ Hey.
Long time.
They give us free pop here, so I brought you one.
Thank you.
So what's up? I only got a second.
- Your text sounded important.
- Yeah.
I can't tell if Dean is manipulating me or not, and I'm-I'm I'm just sort of freaking out.
Manipulating you how? So De-Dean showed up at my house and he told me that I have to convince Max.
- I just don't - Max? What about Max? Dean said Nia has guys in prison that will kill Max.
Is that true? Max got arrested? Oh, my God.
What? Nothing.
- Darnell, does Nia have guys in pr - ‭Murphy, Max is done, and there's nothing you or I can do about it.
I'm really sorry.
- I got to go.
- Where are you going? Back to work.
You haven't even asked me how I'm doing today, Jess.
How are you doing today? Terrible, Jess.
- Why? - I made a reservation - for me and Chelsea at Cedar and Fig.
- ‭Where? - It was on Chef's Table, Jess.
- Move.
It's, like, this super fancy place - she's always wanted to go, right? - ‭Yeah.
And I knew we were getting our first cut last night, so I was like, "Hey, let's go.
" But now I can't afford it because Sam took all of our cut, and it's just ugh, so unfair.
Well, Felix, yeah, a lot of things are unfair right now.
I mean, I don't know what to tell you.
Just tell Chelsea money is tight.
I mean, what else are you gonna say? - She bought a new dress, Jess.
- Well Look at this text.
JESS: Damn, Chels.
- Yeah, I get it.
- Move, please.
I don't even know how to respond.
Well, you know, Felix, I think she wants you to respond with like (GRUNTS) You know? Wait.
What, have you guys not yet? No, Jess, we have not done it yet.
I just, I really like her, and it's been a while for me, so tonight was supposed to be, like, the perfect night, you know? How long has it been? Let's just say Obama was president.
Happier times all around.
What's this? I know you're not in here because you love reading, man.
Please! I'm sorry, it's not visiting hours.
I need to speak to Max Parish.
It's an emergency.
An emergency? I bet.
Ma'am, you can't stand there.
Can you please just give him a message for me? I'm begging you.
(CELL PHONE VIBRATING) - Hello? - MAX (OVER PHONE): Murphy, no more messages, no more reaching out, nothing.
You have to tell Dean where Nia's stash house is.
Oh, yeah? That's a great idea.
Dean said he can transfer you out of state.
He said he'll protect you, but only if you tell him where it is.
Yeah, thanks, but I don't need help from your little boyfriend.
You can hate me all you want, but don't be an idiot.
Max, you're gonna die in there.
Just tell him, please.
It's literally your only option.
If I do that, if I tell him, it's not just Nia who goes down.
They'll take down everyone who works for her, too.
I can't do that to Darnell.
He doesn't work for Nia anymore.
He quit, okay? Just just tell Dean where it is.
Just, please, don't be a hero, okay? Please.
Like now, Max.
I got to go.
Have a nice day.
Nia wants to see you.
- Hey.
I'm out of here.
- See ya.
- Did you cancel your reservation? - No.
- Felix - ‭What? I'm just soaking up these last few moments of knowing I was about to have sex tonight.
- You still might.
- ‭Yeah.
Nothing's sexier than telling a girl that you're broke.
God, Jess, this sucks.
Sam stole my money, our money.
We earned that.
She just took it.
- Like, people can just take things.
- ‭Yes.
Like I said earlier, there's nothing we can do about it, Felix, so (SIGHS) I really got to go.
Yeah, I know.
Have fun banging all night.
You're here.
Well, you kind of missed the whole day, but, um, are you feeling better? Yeah, um, yeah.
Uh, can we talk in your office? Um, Sterling and I are just about to leave, actually.
- She's coming over.
- Oh, wow.
What happened to casual? It is.
Well, I'm trying.
I just I just, I feel good for the first time since, um, well, everything, and, um I just I don't know I guess I was like, "Well, maybe it's all worth it.
" (LAUGHS) Yeah.
Well, have fun.
I'll see you back at home.
Do you need a ride? No, I'm good.

So I'm sorry, I can't save him.
The only person who can do that is Nia Bailey.
And thanks to Max, I'm gonna be putting her behind bars for a very long time.
Now please, get the hell out of here.

I know who he is.
You were a runner when I worked for Nia.
You worked for Nia? For five years.
You weren't important enough to know who I was.
Listen You listen.
I don't trust Nia.
And I don't trust anyone who works for Nia.
So tell me why you're here.
You obviously didn't like working for Nia very much.
Neither do I.
I want to help you take her out.
I'm already doing that by myself.
You won't have enough product to do it.
She's about to buy out Mateo.
You trust him? Yeah.
You trust him with your life? Yeah.
I'll remember that.
What do you got? One of her stash houses.
For you to take.
Whatever she's got right now.
Go get it.
It's guarded.
I need backup.
How many? Three.
You, you and you, Trey.
You three.
Uh, thing is, uh she expects me to send you a message.
One of my guys? Yeah, but (EXHALES) Now go get it.
My guess is she's got guys in the living room and in the back.
Look, whatever we have to do, we do it.
We get this house, we get Nia Bailey.
Let's go.
I can't go in with y'all.
She got cameras.
But she keeps her stuff in the cabinets above the sink.
All right? All right, we're gonna roll up on the house discreetly.
Sirens off.
Ram the front door, clear that front room, give me the okay sign, we'll be right behind you.
Once you take out the guards, get the product and get out of there.
There'll be guys bagging in the basement.
They will hear the shots.
Oh, my God.
Cops got to it.
At least Nia will no longer be a problem for Josiah.
You know what I'm saying? We good now.
We home, baby.
(WHOOPING) Let's go! Yo! Let's go! (EXCITED CHATTER, LAUGHTER) Clear.
Search it.
Where the hell is it, man? - Where are we going? - Miss? Sunrise Cleaners.
(SIGHS) I have something to tell you.
Dean got something out of Max.
Something that could take you down.
He never told Sarah, but, um he told Dean.
And I'll tell you what it is, but you have to do something for me.
What's your price? Max.
Call off the hit on him.
That's quite a price.
I know how much your organization is worth.
So, what's your information? He knows where your drugs are.
Max was lying.
No, he wasn't.
(SIGHS) She moved it.
That presents a problem for me.
I got nowhere to put them.
Yes, you do.
