Little Fires Everywhere (2020) s01e02 Episode Script

Seeds and All

- Wow.
Rent is $300 a month,
water and power included.
You rented to
a homeless person.
Did you even have time
to check her references?
You know, I've been meaning
to hire someone for my house.
Just to do a little
light cleaning.
Yeah, I don't do that.
- Moody.
- Pearl.
- This was a mistake. We should go.
- What?
I-I'm tired of,
of moving around,
of going wherever you want to gowhenever you want to go there.
I'd like to help you in your
household if the offer still stands.
I was calling about your former
tenant, Mia Warren.
I've never
met a Mia Warren in my life.
Oh, hi, sweet Pearl.
You got to go.
Hi, beautiful.
Did you have a good sleep?
Yeah, yeah? Come here.
Hi, hi, what? It's okay.
All right.
- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm. Of course.
Not just for this.
For letting us stay.
Mwah. Come on.
7:30, time to get
this show on the road.
- Honey, your coffee.
- Thank you.
Where's your sister?
Your guess is as good as mine.
Isabelle. First day of school photo.
Everybody outside.
Can we hurry, please?
I won't get a spot on the Oval.
Yes, let me just
smooth out the back, okay?
- Does it look okay?
- Oh, it looks gorgeous.
- You ready?
- Trip, what are you doing? Stop.
- Do you want me to kick you?
- Isabelle, hurry up!
- Boys, take it outside.
- Trip!
- Stop, Trip, put me down.
- Have you spoken with her yet?
- I-I-I will, honey.
- Today's her first day, right?
We can't have
somebody working here
with an illegitimate
'cause the next thing you know,
she's gonna slip and fall
her way into a lawsuit.
I know, I said I would talk
to her first thing, and I will.
Izzy, it's time to go.
- I'll see you tonight?
- Uh-huh.
I'm probably just gonna go
to Moody's after school.
Yeah, I'm actually
gonna see you there
because I'm doing
some work for his family.
What do you mean?
What what kind of work?
Well, we're actually
figuring it out.
But I don't want you
to be late.
Your first day of school.
Love you.
Love you, too.
everybody get together.
One, two, three.
Big smiles.
Everybody pretend
you like each other.
Big smiles, Isabelle.
You're making this
take forever.
You look like you're
at an execution, honey.
Yeah, that would
be way easier.
What? What is the matter?
What's the attitude?
I don't want to go.
Oh, honey,
it's gonna be okay.
Your brothers and sister,
they thrive there.
- How do you know?
- Hi, Pearl, hi.
- Hi.
- What if I don't, Mom?
You will, you will, I promise.
Just one picture.
Everybody. Moody, put your arm around
her. Cheer her up a little bit.
Okay, here we go.
One, two, three.
Everybody just smile quick.
- All right, and Pearl, pop in for one.
- Mom.
- Oh, no, I don't have to.
- Come on.
Get between the boys.
- Okay.
- Right in there in the middle.
Get right in there, perfect.
I want to see joy
on three, okay?
- One, two, three.
- Joy.
New computer lab. Everybody's excited.
It's got dial-up.
- Wait, really?
- Yeah.
Uh, there's a batting cage
in the gym.
- Uh, cafeteria's upstairs.
- Got it.
We have an awesome
Wait, there's a planetarium?
- See you guys.
- Okay, bye.
How long have they
been going out?
Long enough for Lexie
to have their wedding planned.
And I know this is a lot.
You don't have
to remember everything.
We basically have all our
classes together, so
you okay?
Yeah, yeah, I, um,
I just remembered
that I have to stop by
the guidance office.
All right.
Do you know what my mom
is doing at your house?
Have you ever heard
of a house manager?
Me neither.
You could do the
shopping and the cooking.
Deal with any spare dishes
that that come up.
I can definitely do the
shopping and the meals.
Great, um, we also
host a lot of events.
I like to have fundraisers
at the house.
Sometimes Bill's colleagues
come over.
Oh, tomorrow night,
I'm having a book club.
Oh, that would be so helpful if
you could help me put out the food
and, and the drinks and then,
maybe stay and replenish as
as the party goes on.
I'd actually pay you extra
if you would read
the book for me.
I'm just teasing.
It's, um, it's not even really a book.
It's a play.
It's worse than a play.
It's monologues.
None of this group of women
wants to talk about
people's private areas,
having a conversation.
Except for my friend
who chose the book
because, I mean,
she's a gynecologist.
But you'd think after
talking about them all day,
you would think that
she wouldn't want to discuss
Anything else?
yes, uh
actually, no,
I-I think that's, that's all.
Okay, then I'll see
you this afternoon.
What, wait, this afternoon?
You you can't start now?
Mornings are when I do
my best work creatively
and I have those three nights
at Lucky Palace, so.
Afternoons are my window.
I just hate the idea of dirty
dishes sitting around all day.
If I don't prioritize my art,
I don't complete anything.
And it's the bulk
of my income.
Oh, oh.
- Well, we'll try it and see.
- Okay.
I will see you in a few hours.
Let me know if you have
any requests for dinner.
Thank you.
Why didn't I just
I, I talked to someone
about this over the summer,
but they said I had
to work it out in person.
I've already taken geometry,
so I-I wanted to see
about Algebra 2.
You know, when kids
commute here from Cleveland,
they often think they can
handle more than they can.
I live in Shaker.
Let's see here.
This is your third high school
and you're only a sophomore?
We move around a lot.
Ah. Army brat?
No. No, my mom's an artist.
What does your dad do?
Look, Shaker isn't like
your other schools.
You need a lot of
support at home.
Better to succeed in
a regular level course
than to fall behind
in an advanced one.
But I've already taken it.
Mm, parts of it.
Different schools.
Now, can I help you
with anything else?
Uh, subsidized lunch forms?
- Yeah, I need the forms.
- Okay.
Is something burning?
Oh. Sorry, I-I knocked.
Can I help you?
Yes, I forgot to give you
the keys to the house
and, um, money
for the groceries.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Um, I the place looks great.
Actually, the reason
that I came by
was because
I called the person
that you listed as your previous
landlord, and strangely,
he didn't seem to know you.
Well, the numbers must
have gotten mixed up.
Well, um, I would really
appreciate it if you could get me
the un-mixed up numbers.
Yeah, no problem.
Well, I'll let you get back to work.
- Okay.
- Oh, um
I was thinking brisket tonight.
It's just easy.
I'll see you later.
Ugh, stop. Please, stop.
Jessica, are you
deliberately trying
to sabotage this orchestra?
Izzy, show her
how it's done.
Stand up.
Oh, shit, Ellen's
coming out again.
Richardson, line three.
Thank you.
Elena Richardson.
Hi, this is David Carter.
I'm calling regarding Mia Warren.
Oh, um, I'm sorry.
I wasn't expecting your call, I
Mia was great.
Model tenant.
Barely knew she was there.
Those are the best ones,
Right, um, yes.
Were there any, um,
red flags in your mind?
Not a one.
Never late with her rent.
Left the place cleaner
than when I rented it to her.
She and her daughter
were delightful.
Okay, well, um
Thank you, Mr. Carter.
I-I appreciate your time.
Sure thing. Take care.
Okay, I, I will. Bye-bye.
You don't talk much,
but you got layers.
What's going on with her?
- Uh, she barely speaks English.- You don't speak Chinese.
Dude, that shit's Mandarin.
It's just weird doodling.
I love weird.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
I like to make that for Pearl
when she's having a hard day.
Who said it was hard?
Seen the psycho calendar yet?
It's hard to miss.
So how bad was it?
Full of fucking bullies.
You know,
Fiona Apple's right.
"The world is bullshit."
Can you give me
some of those?
So who said you have to
sit back and take it?
If you don't stand up for
yourself, who will?
- Thanks again.
- Yeah, no problem.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Hi.
- How was it?
I mean, it was, yeah.
It was fine.
We were just gonna hang out.
Watch TV or something.
Right, Moody?
- Yeah.
- We'll leave in about an hour.
Want some pretzels?
- You gonna join them?
- Move.
I'm sorry, Bill,
but the whole thing was just strange.
I-I mean, he was
singing her praises.
He called her delightful.
Well, that's a good
thing, isn't it?
Hey, are you gonna
pick up the dry cleaning?
And Mia was supposed to get me
his number, but he called me.
Mm-hmm, uh, because I
really need that blue button down.
The Brooks Brothers.
I-I I'm sorry,
she's just not delightful.
Anyone who has met her would
not describe her as delightful.
Hon, look, you're allowed
to change your mind.
If you don't
want her there
Bill, it's not that
I don't want her there.
I just, I want to feel
good about it.
Okay. But you are gonna pick
up the dry cleaning, right?
I'm home!
Hey, guys.
- Oh, hi.
- Hey.
- Mia.
- Mm-hmm.
I'm Bill.
Hey. The meatloaf
is almost done.
It's got about 45 minutes,
but I set the timer.
Did you put Ritz crackers
in the meatloaf?
- I did.
- Wow.
I haven't seen that
in probably 20 years.
Elena is strictly
bread crumbs.
It's how my mother made it.
Mine, too.
Well, it is great to meet you,
and to finally,
you know, put a
it's nice to finally meet you.
Hey, Pearl, let's go.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Yes, honey. Lexie,
it's fine.
I'm gonna leave
the office in a few.
Yeah, tell-tell your
father to go ahead
and start dinner without me.
All right, honey,
I have to go. Bye.
I was hoping
I would catch you.
Oh, no,
this looks dangerous.
Only if you eat them
all in one sitting.
Make sure and share them
with Marnie and the kids, okay?
What do you need?
I need a criminal
background check.
And if we could keep it
discreet, that would be great.
- For a story?
- Possibly down the line.
Thank you, you're the best.
Her name is Mia Warren.
Hi, everyone.
I'm so sorry I'm late.
I just got caught up at work.
- Meatloaf.
- Mm.
- Hm.
- It's so good.
Yeah, and no pigs
were slaughtered.
So, first day of school.
Any headlines?
- It was fine.
- Pearl liked it.
Well, I got a ton of
compliments on my outfit.
Thank you, by the way,
for telling me
to break in
my Steve Madden's.
I didn't get any blisters.
Good. - How about you,
Izzy? How was your first day?
You know.
Oh, I think I figured out
what I'm gonna do
for my Yale essay.
It has to be about some kind
of hardship that I've overcome,
so I decided that I'm going
to write about South Pacific.
The musical?
What about it?
How I killed myself for that
audition and didn't get Nellie.
But I still gave it my all
in the stupid chorus.
I remember that, honey.
It was very political.
You know, I, for one,
have a real issue
with this Yale essay topic.
You know, your father and I
have worked very hard
your entire life
to prevent you from
having any hardship.
And now, you have to just go
and try and drum one up.
I would expect Yale to
come up with a better question.
- Right? I mean, it is Yale, after all.
- That's right, exactly.
I mean, I-I feel like
they're sort of saying
if you're not raised by
a crack-addicted mother
who can barely
make ends meet,
you, what?
Do you get punished for it?
That seems silly.
I don't think there's a lot of crack
addict's daughters applying to Yale.
Exactly. That's my point, Moody.
I mean,
and then, why put on
some sort of farce?
They're-they're gonna punish youbecause you have good parents
who have made good choices
on your behalf.
- Oh, my goodness.
- It's the Ritz crackers.
There are Ritz
crackers in this?
- Son.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Right?
- Yeah.
- It is very good, mm-hmm.
Not as refined as yours.
Thank you.
Everything's okay?
- Yeah.
- Yes.
Everything's great.
No, it's not.
The food here is terrible.
The fake Chinese.
I am surprised
you chose this place.
- It's free, right?
- Yeah.
I figured that if
we save money,
you won't have
to work as much.
How are your classes?
They're making me
retake geometry.
My counselor won't let
me switch to Algebra 2.
- What?
- Yeah.
I mean, he assumed that
I was from Cleveland.
And on top of that,
he was acting like
I wasn't even smart enough
to be in the class that I'm
clearly supposed to be in
based off of my transcript.
I mean,
isn't that ridiculous?
I remember when
you were that age.
Did you hear what I just said?
Yes, Pearl.
Ask for a placement test.
- You know how to advocate for yourself.
- I tried.
- And?
- He said that we moved around too much.
That the schools I've been to are
unlike the ones here in Shaker.
- Mom, are you even listening to me?
- Yes.
This counselor has no idea
what you're capable of.
If anyone has the ability
to excel anywhere, it's you.
Give me a minute.
Why are you crying?
Bebe, what just happened?
I have to go back to work.
No, you don't.
Give me your apron.
I'll finish your shift.
Go home.
Okay, Buffynot recording
is not a 911.
And plus, it was a rerun anyway. It premieres next week.
I'm pretty sure it does.
- Mom, we're out of SlimFast.
- Yes, I know.
I got the last one.
I'll get more.
Okay. She doesn't want
to be a slayer anymore, so
Dude, what the hell?
Moody, your language.
It's gotten so bad.
Did you not see
what he just did?
Don't narc on me
like that, man.
Just stop fighting.
Are you eating
a Popsicle for breakfast?
- Ew, that looks wrong. Put that away.
- Well, you look wrong.
Good morning.
- Oh, hi, Pearl.
- Hi, Mrs. Richardson.
Oh, just call me Elena.
- Oh, yeah, sorry.
- Are you ready?
Um yeah.
- Elena?
- Mm-hmm?
I was wondering if you'd
mind reading this for me.
I'm having this thing
with my counselor
and I could use the help
of a real writer.
- Oh, so you want to change
your math class. - Yeah.
But we have math together.
This is complete bias.
They do this to
the Cleveland kids.
I just read an article about
this in The Plain Dealer.
They try to discourage minorities
from taking advanced courses.
It's true.
I mean, half our school is black,
but none of them
are in my classes.
Maybe that should be
your Yale essay.
Having to suffer through
upsettingly all-white APs.
- Will you shut up?
- Will you shut up?
You know what,
I'm gonna handle this.
- Oh, no, you don't have to.
- Oh, I want to.
All right, I'm gonna go.
If you need a ride, come on.
Ugh, Trip,
clean up this mess.
Well, she's unleashed.
- Let's go.
- All right.
Scott tell me your address.
I hope it's okay.
- Yeah.
- I just come here
to bring over thank you
for the other day.
I, I made some Chinese
noodle for you.
It's not very spicy
because I'm not sure
if you can eat spicy food.
Thank you.
I'll get your tips.
Oh, no, no.
No, you can keep them. I
- No.
- I just come here to thank you
and explain what I was doing.
That day, why I was crying.
I had a daughter.
- And I miss her so much
- No, no, no, it's okay.
You don't have
to explain it to me.
Here's your tips.
Thank you.
She wishes someone
would come to her window.
Someone with boobs.
Would you guys just stop?
Jessica, really?
It's not enough to sabotage our playing.
Now you have to destroy
Would you just
back the fuck off?
You ever think
she has more things
to worry about
than stupid Vivaldi?
Garrett, you were such a help,
as always.
Um, so I can plan on you
switching Pearl by tomorrow?
Yeah, I'll put
the changes in now.
- Hey, don't be a stranger.
- Thank you.
Mm-hmm, all right.
What am I supposed
to do here?
You're gonna sit there and think
about your shameful behavior.
None of it's acceptable.
Actually, finish this
and tell me how it ends.
Oh, I didn't realize
your daughter was here.
Oh, yes, she's a little under the
weather, so I had to pick her up.
- Has that fax come in?
- Oh, you know, I was gonna tell you.
Our fax is on the fritz again
so I just had them
send it to your house.
My house.
Yeah, otherwise,
they're gonna mail it.
- Okay, thank you.
- Mm-hmm. Bye, dear.
- What?
- Get your things. We need to go.
I bring that
with you, come on.
You can go straight upstairs.
No music except for violin
and when your father
gets home from the game,
we'll decide how long
you're grounded for.
Oh, my gosh,
the table looks stunning.
- Oh, good.
- Thank you for doing all of that.
I-I thought I would
be home earlier.
Um, do you mind running
to the outdoor fridge?
The wine is out there.
It's in the garage.
I just have to finish one thing
for work really quick.
Great, thank you.
- Let's, shall we?
- Let's go sit down.
Does everybody have wine
and something to eat?
- All right, should we start?
- All right.
All right, the moment of truth.
What did everyone think?
- Oh, well.
- Hmm.
Oh, come on.
I know that the tendency
is to back away from anything
that makes us uncomfortable.
- But this book
- It's a play.
- It's a play.
- Really, it challenges us
to look at our own
womanhood, you know,
to examine
the feminine experience.
- Oh, lordy.
- Be it body images or sex.
- Clitoris.
- No, no, it's not usually like this.
Last month we read
How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
You know what I think we should do?
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Listen, I think that we should
all go around the circle
and each answer one of the
questions that this book posits.
What do we think?
Yeah? Okay.
If your vagina could speak,
what would it say?
Mine would love more wine.
A lot more. Elena?
No, I've already had my four
ounces, unfortunately.
Well, Elena, since you
are our illustrious host,
why don't we start with you?
We're joking, Liz. Relax.
No, I'm really,
I'm really serious.
I want to know.
I'm curious to know
what you think of the book.
Well, I thought the play
was funny in certain parts,
but I also found it
a little bit rompy.
Well, what about
the Bosnian rape victims?
Well, not that part,
You know what, I think
that we should read that one out loud
- for those of you that haven't read
the book. - God, no, please.
No, no, no, no, no.
- That traumatized me.
- Yes.
- I can't do it again. - Which is
why I voted for Memoirs of a Geisha.
- Less trauma and controversy.
- Yes.
But what's wrong
with a little controversy
if it elevates
the conversation?
I mean, isn't that the point
of even having a book club?
I'm sorry, but the term
"coochie snorchers"
isn't particularly
elevating in my mind.
I was surprised,
with all the mention of,
That there was very little
discussion about motherhood.
Okay, there was
that amazing piece
at the end about childbirth.
Well, there was that, the one,
but out of how many? 20?
Well, not everyone with
a vagina wants to be a mother.
Well, a lot of us do.
And we all came out of one,
and it's a big event
for a, you-know.
And-and the main reason
we have a you-know.
Um, well,
I haven't had kids,
so does that render
my vagina irrelevant?
I mean, what about Linda,
for that matter?
We're not talking about
Linda's experience.
I think that's
a little personal.
So what are
you talking about then?
What, are you
saying that my vagina
is just worth less
than your vagina?
You're getting very upset.
No, I think Elena's
touching on something
that speaks to the heart
of the piece.
I mean, I-I had the same thought
when I read it, actually.
That, um, big events happen
all the time to vaginas,
but we as a society have a deep
discomfort calling them by name,
let alone regarding them with
respect or actually seeing them.
Yeah, I don't think that's
what Elena was saying at all.
I do.
I think Elena and
= please correct me if I'm wrong.
- No, of course.
But I think Elena
is talking about vaginas
as a metaphor for
our own discomfort
with the parts of us that
make us most uniquely and
primally who we are.
Have you really
looked at your own?
Or has anyone here?
I think that that
is Elena's point.
How can we see ourselves
when we're afraid to look at
who we really are?
This is Mia, everyone.
She's new to Shaker.
Hi, Mia.
That was really insightful.
Hey, I brought sustenance.
- I'm sorry.
- No, no, no.
I'll tell her. Okay.
Bye, Anita. All right.
- Sorry.
- No.
My mom's gallerist.
- Stolen from book club.
- Oh?
Yeah, I swiped about
30 kinds of cheese
and olives the size
of your face.
I love face olives.
- Perfect.
- I'm so sick of Chinese food.
I can't even tell you.
- You got a bunch of new stuff, huh?
- Oh, yeah.
- Ooh, nice chair.
- Oh, thank you. That's my mom.
Ooh, grapes.
Well, you weren't kidding
about these face-sized olives.
You're not supposed
to be in here.
- I mean, I'm not even allowed.
- Sorry.
I'm-I'm so sorry, uh
- Oh.
No, I mean, that's fine.
You just can't mess
with her art or anything.
Your mom smokes?
When she works.
Have you ever?
- Like, with your mom?
- No, trust me.
Um, she's cool,
but not that cool.
You want to try?
- Kind of.
- Okay.
All right, cool.
Start sucking as soon
as I light it.
But just little puffs,
or you'll cough, okay?
It was a surprisingly
good book club
despite you-know-who.
Okay, next time,
we're picking a real book,
or we're staging a coup.
- I'm with you.
- All right.
- Love you.
- Love you.
- I'll call you later.
- Okay, bye.
Thank you for
saving me in there.
Well, I, uh, I was happy to.
You really didn't
have to stay this late.
I need to talk to you.
I saw your fax machine.
The criminal record check.
Oh, okay.
Well, I feel terrible,
but you were coming
to work in the house,
and I always
trust my instincts.
I did lie.
I had to break
my last lease
because I couldn't find
a month-to-month apartment.
So I put down
a fake reference.
And when you called me on it,
I made my boss
at Lucky Palace call you.
I'm sorry.
I've never been arrested.
I'm not a criminal.
But a lot of landlords,
when they see
a single black mom,
they don't want to rent to me.
But you did.
Because you're different,
and I should have seen that
and just been honest.
So I understand if
you're not comfortable
having me work here anymore.
I do.
Why don't we have
a glass of wine?
I can't believe your mom
listens to
the Velvet Underground.
Do you feel high yet?
The room looks super clear.
the edges of everything
look like they're
Is that
is that normal?
I don't know.
Hey, is your mom gonna be
super pissed if she finds out?
Uh, this won't be like
the bikes, will it?
Nothing will ever
be like the bikes.
- All right, my turn.
- Okay.
All right.
I mean, either way,
she's way more
chill and, you know,
laid back than my mom.
She hides stuff.
Just like everybody else.
Well, like what?
Why she does
what she does.
Why we go where we go.
Who she sleeps with.
Who does she sleep with?
Whoever she wants,
whenever she wants.
She says that,
that sex doesn't have
to mean anything but sex.
My-my parents,
they have a schedule.
Wait, what?
Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Lexie told us.
- Oh, I don't get it.
- Yeah?
Your mom seems
like the kind of mom
who's happy
because you're happy.
Um, I'm pretty
happy right now.
Me too.
I am so glad
we-we're doing this.
And I also really like
what you said
about vaginas.
Because it's true.
I'm not the most
flexible person,
but it does feel neglectful
that I've never seen mine.
Have you really never seen it?
- No.
- Really?
- No.
- Huh.
Have you?
I did a whole series
on it in my 20s.
Like, 20 photos.
- Photos?
- Yes.
That people saw?
Oh, my goodness.
Oh, what, that photo
that's over your fireplace?
- What about it?
- Is it yours?
It is.
I couldn't tell
if it was a woman
or, it felt very spider-like.
How did you make it?
A friend helped me.
It goes back to what
we were talking about.
The parts of us that
we're afraid to look at.
I wanted her to feel
Almost monstrous.
Even to herself.
Do you think Pearl likes you?
I've never thought about it.
That's because she does.
And when your daughter doesn't, you think about it all the time.
I take motherhood
for granted sometimes.
That they'll love you forever.
That they'll love you at all.
When they're little, they,
they need you so much.
They hold you and grab for
you and you cuddle them.
She used to burrow into me.
I was the thing
she needed most in the world.
And then they grow up, and
you don't get to hold them,
touch them like that.
Even if you want to.
And it's like
learning to love
the smell of an apple
when all you want to do
is grab it and hold it.
Devour it.
Seeds and all.
And then, you realize it wasn't
just that they needed you.
You needed them.
Ugh, this is why I only
have four ounces.
That is exactly
what it is like.
Seeds and all.
You've done a wonderful
job with Pearl.
I mean, what kid advocates
for harder classes?
That letter she
wrote was wonderful.
She didn't need my help with it, but I was happy to give it.
Is the picture for sale?
- I would love to buy it
- No.
It's not.
- Your art
- It's really late, so
I think I'm
Oh, yeah, uh, of course.
Oh, my good
did we clean the kitchen?
- Yeah, we did.
- Yes.
Yeah, oh.
I like to hug people.
You should join our book club.
October is gonna be
The Horse Whisperer.
And I think, um
maybe after that,
we'll read Primary Colors.
And Mia, I just want to say
thank you for everything.
- Yeah.
- Really.
- Good night.
- Good night.
- Oh, give my love to Pearl.
- Uh-huh.
- Hi.
- Hey.
What's that?
Kurt Cobain.
Courtesy of Moody.
Were you able to fix
your math class?
Yeah, I did what you said.
I took care of it myself.
Good night.
Good night.
Well, have fun without me.
There's another party tonight.
I don't think it's at
the usual spot, dude.
I think it's down
by the square.
Guess we're going.
Oh, hey.
Cock mouth kill cock.
mother used to say that.
It's a Jamaican saying.
It means
what you say could kill you.
What was her name?
May Ling.
What happened to her?
