The Truth Hurts

1 AUTOMATED VOICE: Call from Josh.
AUTOMATED VOICE: Call from Josh.
- Oh, my God.
- It's fine.
It's fine? Then why is he calling you in the middle of the night? Does he know where you are? I stay awake in the middle of a paradise ♪ You're sleeping like a bird and it's fine ♪ My love is good enough ♪ Believe me, I'm the truth ♪ When I dream in your arms ♪ Oh, come, come, come on ♪ You go away in the middle ♪ Of this bloody night ♪ I'm aching like a dog but it's fine ♪ My love was good enough ♪ Believe me, I'm the truth ♪ When I cry all the day ♪ Oh, come, come, come back ♪ How's everything over there? Looks like Felix stopped skimming, so progress.
And Murphy has everything under control.
And Jess? Jess is, uh, harmless.
(CHUCKLES) So harmless you had to spend the last three nights at her place? She seemed on edge.
And I'd rather she come running to me than to the cops.
Are you being serious? You-you told me to get close to her.
To all of them.
Come on, Sam.
Jess is just my way of gaining their trust.
Okay? (EXHALES) Okay.
You're right.
I'm sorry.
I'm gonna get ready for bed.
♪ Hi.
Uh, I've seen you naked.
A bunch.
Yeah, I know.
I know, it's just it's usually not so bright.
(STIFLED LAUGH) - What are you doing here? - I, um, I brought you this.
Murphy let me in.
That's very sweet of you.
I missed you last night.
I missed you, too.
Ster? Babe? (MOUTHS) Wait, back up.
What exactly did Josh's phone say? It-it was reading out loud the cases that he's working on and one of them was Nia Bailey.
And you didn't think to ask a follow-up question on that? Yes, because that wouldn't be at all suspicious.
You could've asked at least one question.
I want to know what he knows.
If If he's onto us, we have to get ahead of that.
You don't think I know that? But there's a way better approach, okay? Don't sleep with him.
I wasn't gonna sleep with him, idiot.
I'm gonna find his files on Nia.
What's he want? I don't know.
I'll just call him back later.
Call, uh, Josh.
Give it to me.
- Give me the phone.
Give me the phone.
- (SHUSHES) (SHUSHES) Shut up.
It's on speakerphone.
Shut up.
- Shut up.
- JOSH (OVER PHONE): Hello? Hi.
Hey, it's Murphy Mason.
Yeah, I know.
My, uh, my phone tells me these sort of things now.
Uh, yeah, that's actually why I was calling.
Because Felix showed me this new app, which I'm probably never gonna use, but I do feel like it could help you fake it at work.
That would actually be insanely helpful.
Um, I can come by your office now.
Can you wait until after work? Sure, yeah.
See you around 7:00? Great.
Okay, bye.
Now I can take pictures of Nia's files.
(SIGHS) Is that my jacket? No.
Yes, it is.
I bought it at a flea market in Prague.
I left it at your sister's.
It's-it's mine.
I'm sorry? If you like it, I'll sell it to you.
200 bucks.
(LAUGHS): I'm not gonna pay $200 for a jacket I paid 30 koruna for, so Isn't that, like, a dollar? That's not the point.
The point is-is it's already mine.
Looks like we're at a real impasse here, sir.
Did you also steal my burrito? No.
I don't even like tortilla, so I can't give you the stash house, man.
The people that work there are, like, friends of mine, I guess.
Your guys can't go in there.
What if I can get them protection from Josiah? Nia will kill them if anything goes missing.
Can you just try to talk to them? I mean, maybe they want - work with us instead.
- I already tried.
They're too scared of Nia.
I'm sorry.
So, that's it? We both know she has other stash houses.
I don't know what else to do, man.
She doesn't let any of us know multiple locations.
I vouched for you, man.
Josiah wants Nia gone.
Now, you said I will figure it out.
All right? Nah.
You know what? It's cool.
Trey, what are you gonna do? See you around, D.
Trey? Yo.
I got you.
Remember that one time in the fifth grade? You called me and I was like, there.
Boom! (INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER) (SIGHS) TGIF, huh? Got any big plans this weekend? No.
My mom's coming into town.
Gonna take her to the Bean.
Hey, man, this is weird.
Max wrote this down in Klingon on the pad from the truck.
What? Klingon.
From Star Trek.
Well, I'm not even going to ask the millions of questions I want to ask you.
He wouldn't have wrote it down in code unless it was something important.
Something he didn't want anyone to know.
Might have to do with Nia's organization.
I think I can translate this.
Well, you do that.
I'm-I'm going to check in with my daughter.
Hey, pumpkin.
How's it going? Well, I'm grounded, so, I went to school, and now I'm doing homework.
Well, good.
Thank you.
Listen, I am stuck here.
So, I may not be home for a few more hours.
You okay? I think I'll survive.
Love you.
Love you, too.
(BOTH LAUGH) You were good.
That was good.
Should we go watch a movie? Wait, hang on.
Mallory's mom left town for the weekend, so she's having people over.
We have to go.
Um, are you sure freshmen are invited? Yeah, totally.
(LAUGHS) So? Anything yet? It's looking like "Green" Something.
"Green tree," maybe? What does that mean? I don't know, but I'm using a bunch of different Trekkie sites to figure this out.
Hey, this is low-key, like so fun.
- Yeah.
- Hmm.
(PHONE CHIMES) (BEEPS) AUTOMATED VOICE: Another delivery tonight at 9:00.
Uh, where are you off to? Uh, bathroom, then home.
Have fun.
Oh, here you are.
Just texted you.
- Are you okay? - Yeah, totally.
I saw that the truck's back.
That's that's good, right? Yeah, yeah, Felix, uh Felix said that the cops didn't find anything, so Thank God.
Okay, well, uh, just give me two minutes, and then, uh, I can drive us home.
Sterling has a thing, so, we can hang out if you want.
- I actually have plans.
- Cool.
- With your best friend, Felix? - No, with Um, with Josh.
His eyesight's just getting worse, so I'm gonna teach him some blind hacks.
Don't sleep with him, please.
Knock much? (SIGHS) You have to make a quick drop.
I'm sorry? It's to the same lady as the last time.
Sam just texted me.
So can you be there by 9:00? What? No.
Come on, I have to deal with the Josh thing.
I have plans with Chelsea.
I'll just text her and see if she's available tomorrow and tell her I'm working.
And Jess is still here, so wait for her to leave.
The drop's at the grocery store again.
I love that this is my life now.
(WHISPERS): What? Okay, I-I don't know what's going on, but I didn't do any (TAKING DEEP BREATHS) Puff paint.
I thought you were gonna show me an app.
I'm gonna blind-proof first.
I'm gonna make it super easy for you to find what you need.
- That is really nice of you.
- Yeah.
Well, I'm nice.
Okay, where's your, uh, where's your files? On the move.
(LAUGHS) Right in front of you, ma'am.
Uh show me "A.
" - Oh, uh - Show me where's "A.
" Is "A" right here? Okay.
So, you draw a little "A" for "A," right here, in puff paint, and then when it dries, you can feel it, you know? So then you do a "B" for "B," you do a "C" for "C" - and so on.
- Yeah.
Seems easy enough.
Then that's it? No.
Not even close.
Okay? You ready to have your mind blown? Okay? I don't think you're prepared for what I'm about to show you.
I don't think I am.
I don't think you are, either.
Okay, so, I thought this app - (BEEPS) - was really stupid.
Open pics reader.
But it's actually incredible.
So, you know how your phone reads your e-mails for you and stuff like that? Say you wanted to read an actual piece of paper like, you know, you wanted to take a look at your, um, your "B" files.
Let's just try B for, you know just for kicks.
So you would center the camera Whoa.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
- No.
No, no, no.
You can't take a photo - of any of these.
No, Murphy - No, I I could get fired.
I'm just trying to show you how it works.
I can delete it, obviously.
I would delete it.
Here, use this.
All right, so you find the center, and then (CLICKS) (BEEPS) APP VOICE: Hi, Joshie.
It's been a banner week for the Wallace kids.
What the hell was that? Oh, that's my family's update.
My mum sends it every month.
So, this is incredible.
- Thank you so much for showing me.
- Yeah, and I and I know, you know, you work with a lot of, uh data and charts, so I want to make sure the app is compatible.
Oh, don't worry, I'll download it.
All right, let's get puff painting.
It's loud.
Guess word got out.
Don't worry, though.
It'll be fun.
Can I have these two? - Hmm? - Seriously? Oh, um, - here's a beer.
- Oh.
(CHUCKLES) You don't drink, do you? Sometimes.
I don't want to, like, corrupt you.
Oh, my God.
Amber! You're my beer pong partner.
(AMBER LAUGHING) I'll be right back, Chlo! ♪ Oh, hang on.
There's a trucking company called Green Floret.
They deliver produce to grocery stores in addition to federal and public institutions, schools hospitals, prisons.
Green Floret.
That's it.
That's how Nia's getting the drugs into the prison through the food.
Good evening.
- Hi.
(CHUCKLES) What, uh what's up? Sorry.
One sec.
(KEY CLACKING) - (KEYS JANGLING) - Uh (QUIETLY): Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch (KEY CLACKING) Try the bottom one.
What? No, there is no bottom one.
No, that's from Friends.
It's Ross and Rachel's first Never mind.
- Hi! - Hi.
(CHUCKLES): What? What's, uh what are you doing here? You said you had to work late, so I thought I would keep you company.
Yeah, that's great.
This is too much.
- No, no.
- No, it is.
I'm an idiot.
I-I really thought it would be cute if I surprised you, but now that I'm here, it's super weird.
No, no, no, no, no.
Honestly, I love it.
- No, you're lying.
- I am not.
- You're lying.
- I am not.
Come here.
Come here.
Wait, were you leaving? Uh, what? Yeah.
Well, I was I was just, um wrapping up, and I was about to text you.
Well, can we still do something? Yeah.
Of course.
Um, the well, we-we missed the reservation.
But, um I-I How about this? I'll cook you dinner.
My famous lasagna.
You just want to skip dinner so we can have sex.
(CHUCKLES) Ya got me.
- Works for me.
- (CHUCKLES) But no, we that won't be happening.
No, I mean, that will be happening.
Trust me.
Right? But not until after I make you dinner.
Because you are a lady, and I insist.
You're really sweet.
So, uh, I will run to the grocery store, pick up a few things, and then - meet at your place? - Well, no, - I'll just come with you.
- No, you don't have to.
It's okay.
No, I do.
I Uber'd here, anyway, so Are you ready? Um - I'll be outside.
- (WHISPERS): What? There's nothing here.
I mean, I don't think she's going to the Feds.
As far as I can see, she was pretty vague with Sterling.
Just find another front.
I'm not gonna find another front 'cause your girlfriend's sleeping with this chick.
That's not why.
Come on, Sam.
Anyway, I'll just make sure she don't talk.
I'm Nia.
We haven't met.
Jessica Damon.
This should be real quick.
I just want to make sure we're good.
Yes, yes, of course.
- Yes, we're very good.
- Because I have to make sure the people storing my product can be trusted.
Do you mean your money? 'Cause yes, of course, that's - it's very - I'm not talking about my money.
What are you talking about? I'm talking about the stacks of my product you guys are storing in your dog school.
What product are you talking about? I don't know how we're supposed to trust her when her own friends don't even trust her.
Told you.
Let's just get the product out of there, be done with them.
No, no, the other two are solid.
Murphy and that pasty kid.
But if even they think Jess is a liability Did anyone see you guys come in here? No.
I think we should handle her.
What? Ain't that what you wanted? How's it going? I think I got to redo the "X.
" It's kind of clumping a little.
You've done it five times.
I got to use the loo real quick.
If you'll just give me a sec.
AUTOMATED VOICE: Call from Chloe.
(PHONE RINGING) (PARTY CHATTER OVER LINE) Hello? Oh, thank God you answered.
What's going on? I snuck out to this party, and then this stupid guy spilled a drink on me.
And I tried to find a bathroom, but I walked into a closet.
And I'm still sitting here, and it's so stupid.
Chloe, first of all parties suck.
Will you come get me? Sure.
Of course.
Um Text me an address and I'll-I'll come get you.
Thank you, Murphy.

Everyone's drunk and horny.
See any closets? Yeah, there's one.

Chloe? Hey.
- All right, Jess.
Here's the deal.

See, but what you say doesn't mean anything.
No, Nia, I swear I'm not gonna say, I'm not gonna say anything.

The universe just doesn't want me to be happy.
Okay, Chloe, where are your keys? I don't know.

Like I care.
Get inside now, straight upstairs.
Thanks, Murphy.
Yeah, no problem.
Why will you not listen to me? For the last time, I don't want you near her ever! Do you understand? You're welcome for saving her.
The only person she needs saving from is you, Murphy.
Really? You want to go there? She is a good kid, and you are corrupting her.
You are corrupting her.
I'm a good father.
You're so delusional.
You think that just because you can get away with murder that that makes you a good father? Go home.
Enjoy your hangover.
Yeah, tell Chloe the same.
(SIGHS) So, uh, you gonna tell me what the hell that was? Uh, we sort of dated.
He and Chloe they came into Guiding Hope last year 'cause she was, you know, thinking about getting a guide dog, and, uh, we hit it off, but things did not end well.
Well, I sensed some tension.
And the thing I said about getting away with murder, um Oh, no.
No, no need to explain.
I know all about police brutality in this country.
Good for you for not shying away from it.
Uh, right.
Well, I just didn't mean for you to get in the middle.
Well, I'm happy to be your eyes while I have 'em.
Come on, hurry.
Help me get her legs.
- Okay.
- (SIGHS) - Okay.
- (EXHALES) - Help me with her head.

(RHYTHMIC BEEPING) Okay, I need to do a needle decompre I I need to reduce the pressure that's building up in her chest.
- Is that safe? - No.
Safe would be going to the hospital.
I'm gonna get her some painkillers.
Nia? Look at me.
What the hell?! - What? - I don't The key to my medicine cabinet is gone.
- Are you serious? - Yes.
(SIGHS) - What drugs are here? - What? The drugs that you're hiding here what are they? Just heroin.
It'll work.
It's ready.
Syringes are in the second drawer on your right.
Okay, give me the needle.
Come here.
I need you to hold this.
Can you keep her steady, please? Thank you.
(SIGHS) - Is everything okay? - Mm-hmm.
Yeah, I think so.
You do know in the States guys don't actually have to walk girls all the way to their doors, right? (CHUCKLES): Yeah.
Well, I'm just being polite.
I appreciate it.
All right, well I should I'll get going.
You don't want to share this joint I stole from a 15-year-old? I really shouldn't.
Do you do anything fun? I'm a federal officer.
Just get in here.
You take yourself so seriously.
You make it sound like you, like like you're fighting crimes.
Well, I am, actually.
Has anyone ever told you you're not nice? You're actually pretty mean.
Oh, everybody.
Yeah, whatever.
I'm gonna lose my job anyway.
You can actually lose your job from smoking weed? Mm.
Yeah, and for being blind.
Well, you can't lose your job; you just, you get transferred to one of the boring divisions.
I don't really understand why you need your sight to, like, make sure people are paying their taxes, you know? Well, again, that's not my job.
- Mm.
- It means I use money trails to investigate criminals.
- You're, like, a math cop.
- (CHUCKLES): Yeah.
Yeah, well, I found a way to catch bad guys my own way.
- Spreadsheets.
- Mm.
So, you're after some drug lord or something and you're gonna put them in math jail? Well, I'm actually onto a woman right now.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
We really are taking over.
Yeah, I've been I've been searching for her for, like, two years, and I have well, I have zilch.
Well, you know, it would be really great to get her before before lights out, you know? Yeah.
(SIGHS) I don't want to I-I don't want to I Oh, my God.
What? - I'm No, I'm sorry.
- Okay.
I mean, I didn't I don't want it.
Okay, it's just, you know, the last time I know.
I was in a weird mood that day.
To be honest with you, being with another blind person, I - I get it.
- Hmm.
When I got diagnosed, my mom, she forced me to hang out with this blind dude from another school who was already blind you know, he was, like, born blind.
And she wanted us to date.
Oh, God.
Like you're the only two pandas at the zoo? Yes.
And I was so weirded out by him that I escaped through the bathroom window, and I walked to Jess's house.
- No, you didn't.
- Swear to God.
Well, that makes me feel better.
Why? I've been planning on escaping out your window this whole time.
What time is it? - 1:00.
- Okay, good.
We can keep her here for a couple more hours.
Thank you.
I did what anybody would do.
That's not true.
♪ Gary, where's the shipment? Never came.
What are you talking about? Truck didn't show.
(LINE RINGING) MAN: What's up? Where the hell's the shipment? Truck just got busted.
We're working on it.
I need it.
I owe some guys product.
This dude jumped me.
I said we're working on it.
I got to go.
All right, we need to get her out of here.
Get her legs.
I'm worried about carrying her to the car.
We're not I'm not strong enough to keep her stable, so is there someone else we can call? Well, thanks for a a weird night.
I almost forgot.
Got you your own pack of puff paint, so you don't get fired.
Thank you.
I guess I'll tell Pam I'm into, like, scrapbooking or something.
Good night, Murphy.
Good night.
She's good.
Sam's with her in the car.
I can drive her.
All right, um, you need to clean the bullet wound a couple times a day.
And, uh, she needs antibiotics, but that's gonna have to wait until tomorrow, because I can't find my key.
- Thanks.
- Mm-hmm.
Sam told me what happened.
You okay? No.
Nia's lucky you were there, Jess.
Wasn't my choice.
(DOG BARKING IN DISTANCE) What the hell did you do? Josiah wanted to take Nia down, and we weren't getting that done with your plan.
Well, she's still alive, bro, and she knows it was one of Josiah's guys.
I thought I got a good shot.
You went in alone to kill Nia Bailey? How dumb are you? How dumb am I? This whole thing was your idea, and so far I'm the only one doing anything.
Josiah's running out of patience, man.
I'll talk to him.
I'll take the hit for both of us, tell him I messed up, and you had nothing to do with it.
When I came to you, I was being emotional and stupid and I got us both into a really bad situation.
I'll go wait at the arcade until Josiah gets there.
Take care of yourself.
(CAR DOOR OPENS) (DOOR CLOSES) (ENGINE STARTS) Jess? Oh my God, there you are.
Where have you been? - So much to tell you.
- (CHUCKLES) I know you're hiding drugs at Guiding Hope, Murphy.
- You what? - I found out from Nia.
She tried to kill me because she said if you can't trust me, she can't trust me, so What? Jess, that's We were trying to protect you.
Oh, my God.
