Okay, bye.
- [JO] Bye.
- Bye.
[SIGHS] So this is what you're doing? You're just threatening to break up and leave now, because of what? Because of a stupid fight? See, you still don't get it.
It wasn't stupid.
You said I was unstable, and you didn't see a future for us.
Okay, look When I heard you say that right now, I think maybe there has been some sort of misunderstanding - or misinterpretation of what I said - No.
It wasn't a fucking TS Eliot poem, Gus.
It didn't need interpretation.
I knew what you meant.
Look, this is very This is insane, okay? We haven't ever talked about this before.
I don't even know my God damn it! Fucking shit! Hey! - Hey, Gus! - Hi.
- Hello.
- Who's this now? Oh, this is my girlfriend Mickey.
And this is my cousin Lisa and her family.
Hi, guys.
I've already seen her all over Facebook, so I feel like I know her already.
- Oh, yeah, sure.
- Gus, is there a TV in there? No, I don't think there's a TV.
- Mom, you said there'd be a TV! - You lied! No, nobody lied.
Let's go.
- [LISA] Hey! - I gotta get outta here, 'cause I cannot be the welcoming committee, okay? - I'm going back to LA.
- You can't do this.
- You can't do this to me.
- Why the fuck not? Because this is gonna be fuckin' hell, okay? Being trapped here with my family and pretending everything's okay, while you and me are falling apart? Please? Fine, I will stay for this party, but then I am leaving afterwards, and you can stay here until the [SIGHS] Oh, my God.
Can we just go in there? 'Cause I can't say hi to another person.
[MICKEY SIGHS] - [WHISPERS] They gone? - No.
- Go.
- Okay.
They make you use their caterer - when you rent this place, though.
- Oh, yeah.
It's a real sweet print, isn't it? - Isn't it sweet! - This is just so tender.
The beams on Tower 7 were demolished diagonally, okay? - When you do a regular demolition - Okay.
- Shall we enter the abyss? - Mm-hmm.
- Hello.
- Hi.
[WOMAN] I watched your witch show.
What'd you think? I mean, I could do without the devil worshiping and the paganism.
And then one morning, we wake up, and our entire world is being run by one government.
- Really? You think so? - Mm-hmm.
The only real obstacle to selling recreational vehicles is that people consider it a luxury.
That's partly a problem with the name.
" So what you do is, you convince people, and I was telling you this earlier, that it's a necessary luxury.
That's how you hook 'em, and then that's how you bring 'em in.
All right, excuse me.
I am just so proud of all my children.
The dealerships and the charities and the art shows and the teaching No, Gussie, your movie.
Don't forget.
That, too.
[CHUCKLES] I'm for the creative stuff, for sure, but there's nobility in education.
Teachers are heroes, like a firefighter or a soldier, I think.
[KEN] Okay, everybody, listen up! First of all, let's give it up for Mr.
and Mrs.
Victoria and Mark Cruikshank.
[ALL CHEERING] I mean, come on.
Forty years! [CHUCKLES] I mean, seriously, folks? [VICKI AND MARK CHUCKLE] But, you know, a lot of people probably don't know this Mom and Dad, when they first got hitched, did not have a honeymoon.
- [CROWD] Aww.
- Yeah.
No honeymoon.
- Sorry.
- They wanted to go to Hawaii, but instead, like they always did, they sacrificed and pinched pennies, so they could provide a better life for their family and their children.
Well, Mom and Dad, I believe you've sacrificed enough.
[HAWAIIAN MUSIC PLAYING] - [ALL] Aww! - So, as an anniversary gift from me, Kelly, Nina and your future grandson, of course, I think it is finally time for you two to say aloha to Hawaii.
- Oh! - Yeah, you're going to Hawaii.
- Oh! - What? - [ALL CHEERING] - Mom, Dad, get your butts up here! - We have a whole lei thing we want to do.
- [MARK] You're kidding, right? - [KEN] No.
- [VICKI SHOUTS, LAUGHS] - What's happening? - He's sending them to Hawaii? - [ANDREW] Was there an e-mail chain I missed? - [CAROLINE] No.
- No? - Oh, honey.
Oh, thank you.
[ALL] Aw! - What the fuck? - Are you okay? It's just this is a surprise to me, too.
He didn't tell you? It's fine.
I mean, we can barely pay our mortgage.
- But it's fine.
- Oh.
- [VICKI LAUGHING] - Kelly! Kelly, come here.
- [CHUCKLES] - I'm sorry.
- Come on, honey.
Come on, honey.
Let's - [KEN CHUCKLES] - [KEN] Does anyone have a camera? - His stupid shoes.
What a pig in shit.
- This is too much.
It's too much, Ken.
- Say aloha.
- Wow, very thoughtful, Ken.
- Well, they deserve it.
Dude, what's wrong with you? What? No, I mean, I wanted it to be a surprise, so You made us look like losers.
We could've pitched in and given that together.
But you guys spend your money and travel here.
That's your gift.
I live here, so this is my gift.
I didn't want to burden you.
[CAROLINE] It's too big.
We should've done one of those gift-from-the-kids kind of things.
Like, when we got them TiVos.
It was, like, $13 each.
Okay Gus, back me up here.
You know what I'm doing here.
It's just a nice gesture.
No, it's very nice.
It's good, but I see where they're coming from.
- Really? - A little bit, yeah.
I thought you guys would be happy that Mom and Dad finally get to go to Hawaii, but, all right, just make it about yourselves.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.
You're such a dick, do you know that? Oh, Andrew, we don't talk like that.
- Okay, Drew, cut it.
- But he is a dick.
He didn't even tell us about this gift.
We couldn't pitch in if we wanted to.
I didn't want to make you feel stupid.
I was doing it as a surprise.
Don't do this to me again.
Stop it! Well, uh, don't worry, Mom and Dad.
The three of us, we actually chipped in for a present, too, and um we're gonna pay for your magazines on the flight to Hawaii.
But just on the flight there, okay, not the flight back.
We can't afford that.
- Oh! And we also got you this napkin.
- [VICKI] Oh.
It's the paper napkin year, right? Forty years, yeah? Oh, who's this now? Hey, I'm an old man with my white hair.
[CHUCKLES] Hey, stop all this fightin' and fussin'.
Y'all sound like me and Hillary after she found out about Monica.
I did not know Ken was going to give that present.
[ALL LAUGHING] - So was I right or what? - What? - My family, I told you they're insane.
Did you see what Gus did? Like, every time shit gets weird, he fuckin' turns into Jerry Seinfeld.
Oh, he's really gotten super neurotic since the whole Ridley Scott thing.
You guys talking about Ken's insane gift? No, I was telling Mickey about Ridley Scott.
- Don't.
- What? It's not that big of a deal.
Okay, I don't know how much Gus has told you, but when he first got to LA, he was hot shit.
- What? - [ANDREW] Yeah.
- Really? - Yeah.
He wrote this script that everyone saw, and he took all these cushy meetings with important people.
- Oh, okay.
- Yeah.
It was nuts.
And he got a job as Ridley Scott's assistant, but also to develop stuff with him.
- He was set.
- [CHUCKLES] - Yeah, it was so promising.
- Yeah.
Until [CHUCKLES SOFTLY] Okay, so, I don't know what happened, but he got in his head about his career not moving fast enough.
This is, like, a few months in only.
And so he sent Ridley an e-mail saying, like, "I need you to take me more seriously," and on and on and on.
- Wait.
Gus did that? - Yeah.
That's ballsy.
I like it.
But the e-mail also included a long exchange he had with our mom, and it said how he should word it.
He was asking her all these questions about what he should say in the e-mail, and that was all in there, and the e-mail was just at the top.
- Uh-oh.
- It was yeah.
- Yeah.
So - Oh.
And, of course, Ridley sends it to everyone he knows, like directors, agents, managers, studio execs, and he's like, "Look what my little assistant sent me from his mommy.
" [SNICKERS] Did you guys see the e-mail? - Yeah, it's so bad.
It's - It's awful.
At one point, he even says, "Thanks, Mommy.
" - Like, yeah.
- No.
[ANDREW] Oh, my God.
Mom's hammered.
I'm gonna give her the rest of my tequila and see how fucked up she gets.
Jesus! What? Last time she got hammered, she pushed Dad in the Rasmussens' pool.
It was awesome.
You want to see that, right? I'm gonna go get some cake.
No, I don't want to see that.
That's, like, deeply sad.
Uh - "China Doll" by David Bowie.
- Very good.
- I'm cleaning up the cake.
- I see.
- [VICKI] Did you want a drink, honey? - [MARK] No.
Not right now.
- Hey.
- Mmm.
- How's it going? Everything okay? - It's great.
I'm having so much fun.
- Why don't you come sit down? - Oh, no, I'm good.
This is my spot.
I can see everybody and look at Oh, there's Mickey! Hey, Mickey! Get over here! There's my girl! - Come here.
- Okay.
You're my girl.
Come on over here.
Here she comes.
Oh, Mickey, look at you.
Mark and I were just talking, and we decided that you're our favorite.
- Oh, no.
- [MARK] That's true.
It's very sweet of you.
Of all the girls that Gussie brought home, you are number one best.
Really, so much better than that What's her name? Natalie.
- Boom.
Shots fired, Natalie.
- Well, Natalie was a bitch.
- Let's just admit it.
- Hey, oh.
[CHUCKLES] You know, I mean, I could tell, Gussie.
Moms always can tell.
- Okay, Vicks, let's take it easy.
- Who else was there? Um Uh - Who else was there? Theresa.
[BUZZES] - Yes.
- Am I right? [BUZZES] - I don't know about that.
That seems like an oversimplification.
[CHUCKLES] Come on.
The thing about Theresa was, she was just boring.
- Hmm.
- You'd say to her, "Oh, so, where are you from?" And she'd say, "Lansing.
" Or wherever.
And that was it.
- [MICKEY] Hmm.
- Um - Excuse me, but are you an alien? - [ALL LAUGH] - You know? - Yeah, well, it's true.
- Mickey's the very best.
- She's the number one best.
The number one.
You have to grab on to this one.
- This is the one to hold on to.
- I will.
I'm not letting her go! [MARK] My dad is leaving.
We should probably go say goodbye.
[VICKI] Sure, let's go say bye to Daddy.
Here we go.
[MICKEY] Excuse me.
I'm sorry.
Fuck this.
[GUS] Hey.
Where you goin'? - Going to the airport.
- Mickey, where you going? - Come on.
- I'm going to the airport! You lie to me so much.
I know about the whole Ridley Scott thing.
Okay, look.
It was late at night, all right? I wasn't keeping track of my e-mails.
It was very confusing.
I was forwarding stuff and was confused! Dude! Why wouldn't you tell me that? 'Cause it's not a great seduction story, Mickey, okay? On our first date, I'm not gonna go, "Hey.
Just so you know, I embarrassed myself in front of - half of " - Give me the keys.
- Wait.
You're just going to take the - Yeah.
Give me the keys.
- Thank - No.
What? Are you serious? - Give me the keys.
- I don't want to - [STAMMERS] Give me the key! - Stop it.
You think that I'm not ready to be a mother, but you behave like a little baby.
You've got all these lies, and you run and you hide, and you keep secrets.
You were engaged.
The whole Ridley Scott thing.
And you tell your parents you go to church? You're making it sound worse than it is.
I'm just trying to make people happy.
Okay? So I lie and hide a little bit.
I don't think there's anything super wrong with that, Mickey.
It's your whole family.
Yeah, my family's nuts, but we put it all out there.
You don't even know my family, okay? They're way deeper than that.
You can't just come in and, like, "Oh, two days, I sum up your whole family.
" Maybe I didn't want you to come with me, and it had nothing to do with me and my family, okay? - It's me? Is that what you're saying? - Yeah, maybe.
Maybe it was you.
Maybe I didn't want to bring you because you, not because of me, not because of my family, not because we're keeping secrets.
Or whatever Eugene O'Neill drama you have in your head right now.
All right.
Yeah, I'm gonna go.
I don't care.
Can you just go in and say goodbye to everybody? Just make up an excuse or something, so I don't have to feel stupid.
Yeah, I can do that.
I just need a minute, okay? Uh Hey, everybody Sorry, bad news, but Mickey's gotta leave town and go to the airport now.
[CAROLINE] Wait, what? Yeah, something just came up at work, and I gotta go.
Actually, Mickey, you don't have to do that.
Uh She's just being polite.
She's upset with me because I've been lying to her and hiding things from her and all of you.
Really, just things that I'm super embarrassed about or ashamed of.
You know that movie I've been making with Arya? Uh, she dropped out.
She dropped out of the whole thing.
So now I'm just super in debt, and the only thing I have to show for it is a two-minute sizzle reel.
- What's a sizzle reel? - It's nothing.
It's it's really uh, nothing.
Look, my point was I just blew it with Arya.
Honestly, I think I blow every work opportunity I've ever been given.
I blew it with Ridley Scott and the director of Liberty Down and I'll never be a writer on Witchita because the one time I was invited in the writers' room, I flipped out and threw a woman's computer across the desk.
So - Whoa, I didn't know that.
- Yeah.
Me neither.
Oh, yeah.
No, I mean, it's nothing new.
I mean, I have serious anger control problems.
Last month, I was driving my car, and I had a serious case of road rage, and I lost control of my car.
I spun around, and I hit some cars and I didn't tell anybody about it.
[CHUCKLES] You threw a woman's computer? Mom, you gotta keep up with me 'cause I'm just gonna roll right through these, okay? Uh, I don't think I believe in God.
When I was nine, I threw up in Mom's purse.
You guys remember Natalie, right, my ex-girlfriend? She pretended to cheat on me so that I would break up with her.
But I didn't, so she just had to break up with me.
Hmm Dad, I don't like sports.
I just pretend to like sports so that you and me have something to connect over.
Yeah, I don't know.
I mean, I guess what I'm just saying is that You know, I try.
I try to pull a fast one on all of you and make you think I'm the perfect son or the perfect brother, but, uh I'm a I'm a fuck-up.
And the only thing I really got going for me is Mickey.
But I'm fucking that up, too 'cause I told her last night that she's not ready to have a family, but I'm wrong.
I'm the person who's not ready to have a family and it's just easier for me to go, "Mickey's the crazy one.
I'm the healthy one.
" But I'm the crazy one.
All righty then.
Good to know.
Can we finish cleaning up and go home? [SIGHS] Okay, thank you.
I - I'm sorry.
That was awful.
- You kidding me? That was awesome.
- Really? - Yes.
I mean, I've had some intense conversations with my parents.
I have never gotten as honest as that.
That was brave.
It took guts.
I feel so fucked up right now.
Ah! Feels good.
Things got kind of heavy back there in Jesus, what's it called? - Brookings.
- Brookings.
- But we got out of there alive.
- Yeah.
Big time.
Tell me about our future.
Well, we move in together.
- Mm-hmm.
- Mm-hmm.
And then we get a little doggie.
- Oh, I like that.
A beagle.
- Yeah.
Then, we get into couples therapy.
- Get nice and sharp and strong.
- Yeah, yeah.
And then then we get married and have babies.
Oh, yeah.
Very popular these days.
When they fight, they fight And when they come home at night They say I love you, baby [VOCALIZING] Was it too much too soon? Or too little too late? He got the message She left on his car in the rain And then the words, they come to you Driving away You just can't let it go And when they fight, they fight And when they come home at night They say I love you, baby
