[BELL RINGS.]

[STUDENTS CHATTERING.]


Must be nice.

Not having to wake up at 5 a.
m.

to practice with those
homophobic morons.

They're not all morons.

Yo, what's up, my bromos?
Listen, I'm so glad we got
to hang out last weekend.

Loved the cabin, by the way, Benji.

Such a warm color palette.

Oh, and that fireplace
nook was positively dreamy.

I watched Queer Eye,
so I know what's good.

Andrew, why are you being so weird?
I'm just trying to show
you that I am a queer ally.

Or is a straight ally?
Look, point is, I'm an ally.

All right, what happened
with the team was messed up.

Yes, but whenever you're ready,
we want you back.

Okay.
Uh, what about the guys that
didn't want me to shower with them?
Oh.
Um, that see
You want me back on the team
for the first game of the season
because you know you're
screwed without me.

Good luck.

Yeah.

Somebody to tell me
it'll be all right ♪
Somebody to tell me
it'll be just fine ♪
If someone has been there
before, say it right now ♪
'Cause I just need to hear it ♪

[BELL RINGS.]

Hey, did you ever think that
maybe this is for the best?
I mean, you started basketball
because your dad loves it, right?
Yeah.
Maybe you're right.

Maybe I just played basketball
because it seemed like something
- a straight kid would like to do.

- Exactly.

- Screw basketball.

- Yeah, screw basketball!
Yeah, screw basketball!
- [VICTOR AND MIA LAUGH.]

- Sorry.
I just wanted to fit in.

- Well, hi.
[LAUGHS.]

- Hi.

Uh, are we still going to Benji's
friends and family concert after school?
Yes.
Been working with
the new band on some music,
and we need brutally honest feedback.

Ah.
So tell you you're
great, even if you suck.

- Pretty much.

- [VICTOR CHUCKLES.]


Is it just me, or is
the Hundred Years' War
just, like, really, really sensual?
I know you're trying to distract me,
and I am immune to your feminine wiles.

Even if I ask you to ravage me,
like the Black Death
ravaged Europe in 1348?
Dammit.
You know I can't resist
historically accurate dirty talk.

- GEORGINA: Knock, knock!
- [DOOR OPENS.]

Mom! I really wish you'd actually knock,
instead of saying "knock,
knock" once you're in my room.

Listen, I just got some incredible news.

Mary Lou Gordon's gallbladder
just straight-up exploded,
so guess who's taking
over hosting duties
for Good Morning Atlanta this week?
- Oh, my God.

- Is she okay?
Me! This is beyond exciting,
but if I want to get my
eight hours of beauty rest,
I have to go to bed like, now.

- Okay.
Good night.

- GEORGINA: Oh, no.
No, no, no.

I've seen every episode of Teen Mom
and that is not going down
on my watch.
Now, Felix,
honey, you know I am
just very fond of you.

But get out of my house so I can
lull myself into a low key coma
with the edibles my
assistant gave me, okay?
Ugh.
She is the actual worst.

Actually, you, um, wanna
come to my place for a bit?
Really? Is your mom not home?
Oh, no.
No.
Sh-she's there.
Um
[GRUNTS.]

You know, I didn't want to tell you,
because I didn't want to jinx
it, but she is on these new meds,
and she is doing a lot better,
and I kinda would love for
you two to finally meet.

Yes, Felix.
That is amazing.

Um, let me just throw a
respectable parent look together.

I want your mom to go crazy for me.

Sorry.
Poor choice of words.

GEORGINA: Uh, less
talking and more leaving!
[KNOCKING ON DOOR.]

ARMANDO: Isa, it's me.

- [CLEARS THROAT.]

- [DOOR CLOSES.]

- Hey, Mando!
- Hey.

I, uh, have the rent check.

Oh.
Thank you.

Of course.

[SIGHS, CLEARS THROAT.]

I can't stop thinking about what
happened with us the other day.

Me, neither.

Wow.
Big fan of your work.

- [BOTH LAUGHING.]

- And I of yours.

- Yeah.

- [BOTH LAUGH.]

But sex was never really
our problem, was it?
- No.
Mmm.

- Yeah.

But I think we should talk
about what it means, uh, for us.

- Hmm.

- You wanna have dinner tonight?
Uh, I have PFLAG.

You can come with me.

Yeah, there's there's a
great barbecue place next door.

They have fried pickles,
just like back in Texas.

Hmm?
Okay.
You're still not ready
to go to a meeting with me.

- I am working on it.
I swear.

- [ARMANDO EXHALES.]

Dinner tomorrow night.

- Tomorrow's perfect.

- Good.

- Okay.

- Okay.

Okay, so I'll see you.

- I don't
- I
- I don't Let's do cheek.

- Okay.
[LAUGHS.]

Great.

- Bye.

- Bye.

[LAUGHS.]
Okay, everyone here
is, like, intimidatingly cool.

Yay! I'm so glad you guys are here.

Cabin crew.

- Hey.

- Hey, guys.

So, Benji played me
some of their tracks,
and they sound so amazing.

Like if Satin Jackets
and Bleachers had a baby,
but then they died in a car crash,
so the baby had to be
raised by Empire of the Sun.

Does that make any sense?
No.
But I love your passion.

Come on, Salazar.

Let's get the ladies some drinks.

- What Uh, okay.

- ANDREW: Yeah.

[SIGHS.]
Andrew, what do you want?
Well, I want your ass back on the team.

Be honest.
Don't you miss it?
Being around a bunch of guys
that think I'm some
sort of locker room perv?
- No, I'm good.

- No.
Nobody thinks that.

A couple of guys are just weirded
out, but they'll get over it.

I mean, you're basically the
least gay gay person alive.

Good to know.
I'm gonna
go and say hi to Benji.

I
Guitar
- VICTOR: Hey.

- Victor! Hey.

Uh, meet the band.
This is Mylo, Stevie,
that's Coryn, and that is Tosh.

Hi.
It's so nice to
finally meet you guys.

Yeah, us, too.
Benji will
never shut up about you.

STEVIE: [LAUGHS.]
It's cute
and annoying at the same time.

Is that Lucy's boyfriend?
CORYN: Yeah, such a basic
high school sports person.

MYLO: Coryn! Victor plays basketball.

Oh.

I actually just quit,
so I'm not a "basic high
school sports person" anymore.

Yeah, Victor's in the early
stages of jock recovery.

He just escaped the cult of cheap
body spray and casual misogyny.

- [LAUGHING.]

- STEVIE: That's probably why you like him.

The sports.
The church boy haircut.

He's your perfect straight boy fantasy.

[LAUGHS.]
Oh, trust me.

Victor is much more than
just a handsome jock.

STEVIE: He's a handsome ex-jock.

Yeah.
Thank God.

Now I don't have to sit with
the basketball girlfriends
and do the whole "Go Grizzlies" dance.

[ALL LAUGHING.]

CORYN: Kill me dead.

[BAND LAUGHING.]

Oh, wow.

Felix, it looks so much better in here.

Mmm-hmm.
First time in years my
mom's actually thrown stuff away.

I do kind of miss the leaning
tower of pizza boxes, though.

- DAWN: Felix? Is that you?
- Uh-huh.

DAWN: I just made schnitzel!
- Mmm.

- I Oh!
Oh, I didn't know we had company.

I I'm so sorry about the clutter.

You caught us in the middle
of our spring cleaning.

That's our story and
we're sticking to it.

Mom, this is Lake.

Oh, gosh.
You're Lake!
You're the Lake!
- LAKE: Hi.
It's so nice to meet you.

- Oh, God! [LAUGHING.]

Oh! Oh, and you're so gorgeous! Oh!
Okay, Mom, uh, don't
break my girlfriend.

- [LAUGHS.]

- Okay.
Okay.
I know.
I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.
I just, I know
how much you mean to my son.

Would you like to stay?
Because I just made some schnitzel.

Homemade German? I am so in.

DAWN: Oh, great.
That's great.

Honey, will you come to
the kitchen and help me,
so I can gush about your
girlfriend in private?
[LAUGHS.]

That went great.
Right?
Yeah, I mean, I, I, I, I thought
it would, but I wasn't really sure,
- but that actually went really good.
I
- Yes, it, it did.
It did.

It went great.
Your mom is awesome.

- Okay.

[CLAPPING AND CHEERING.]

Thank you, guys.
We're gonna take
five, and we'll be right back.

- [CLAPPING.]

- AUDIENCE MEMBER: Whoo! Yeah!
So, what did you guys think?
Oh, I loved that last one.

- It was really, really good.

- [LAUGHS.]

Victor?
Uh, it-it was cool.

Uh, can I talk to you for a second?
Yeah.
Yeah.

Okay.
What's up with you?
Nothing.
It's just
a little weird to hear you
and your friends talk about me
like I'm some sort of dumb jock.

They were just joking around.

I'm sorry.
I'm just
messed up right now.

And it's not your fault.

It's just
I'm, I'm gonna head home.

Okay.

You guys really do sound great, though.

Uh, hey, I have a lot of homework,
so I'm gonna get going.
But,
uh, I'll see you tomorrow?
- Yeah.
Sure.

- Okay.
All right.
Bye, guys.

- Yep.

- MIA: Bye.

Actually, I think I'm
gonna head out, too.

I gotta get up at the ass crack
of dawn for practice tomorrow.

You mind hanging with Mia?
- LUCY: Yeah, of course.

- Oh, okay.

Cool.
Well, thank you.

- Hey, Shelby.

- SHELBY: Oh.

You have a little extra
pep in your step today.

Just feeling good about where
I'm at in my life.
You know?
ISABEL: Armando and I were intimate.

We're just separated.
We're still
married, so it's not a sin.
[LAUGHS.]

Although I guess he would be
the judge of that.
[LAUGHS.]

[CLEARS THROAT.]
We're having dinner
to talk about getting back together.

We have our problems, but, I, I,
I really want things to work out.

What kind of problems?
He He doesn't really know
how to talk about his emotions.

Yeah, it's like since
I started coming here,
I feel way more in
touch with my feelings.

You know? And thanks.

And it just feels so good to not
have everything bottled up inside.

I feel like I'm growing as a person,
which feels dumb to say,
since I'm in my forties.

Oh, no.
It's not dumb.

Having a kid come out, it changes you.

I mean, last month, I
went to drag queen bingo.

- How was that?
- It's fun.

I barely recognize
the woman I used to be.

All because my kid was brave
enough to say "I'm gay.
"
FATHER LAWRENCE: He is? When
did he share this with you?
A couple months back.

Armando has been surprisingly
accepting of all of this,
considering his machismo.

But I am struggling.

And I, I know
I know that Victor didn't
choose to be this way
You're a good mother.

That's very clear.

But I think you're, you're right
to express your disapproval,
if you want Victor to know God's love.

Oh.

You sound disappointed.

That's what I was always taught.

I just thought maybe the church
was a little more flexible nowadays.

Do you think God is in the business
of providing loopholes? [CHUCKLES.]

ARMANDO: I just thank God
for giving me the courage
to come here, and
to love my son for who he is.

Oh [LAUGHS SOFTLY.]

- Meeting's starting.

- Right.

[GRUNTS.]
Oof.

I thought you were done with basketball.

Andrew, what are you
doing? You following me now?
Come on.
Let's go.

All right.

You live for this.

[SIGHS.]
Listen.

How many times do I have to tell you
I'm not gonna be part of a
team that doesn't want me?
And how many times do I have to
tell you they will come around?
Right.

Because I am "the least
gay gay person alive.
"
I'm guessing that was
a stupid thing to say.

No.
No, it was perfect.

Please, tell me what's the
exact level of gay I should be.

What is a perfect level of gay
that will keep everyone happy?
Because apparently, I'm
too gay for the locker room,
but I'm not gay enough
for Benji and his friends.

So, where do I belong?
You belong on a basketball court.

[SIGHS.]
Let's say I do come back.

What happens if one day I
do want to be more "gay gay?"
And I change the way I dress,
or, or I dye my hair pink.
Then what?
Are those things that you really want?
I think the pink hair
thing could be kind of dope.

Well, then, I think you should do it.

If anyone has a problem with
it, they can answer to me.

Andrew,
do you really think that you're an
ally because you watch Queer Eye?
This whole time, you
haven't said shit to the guys
that don't want me changing
in the locker room with them.

Because at the end of the day,
you don't want to risk your
reputation for the gay kid.

[VICTOR GRUNTS.]

Benji and Victor are such a hot couple.

- Not that you and Victor weren't a hot couple.

- [MIA CHUCKLES.]

You guys were a really hot couple.

- But I should just stop talking.

- [LAUGHS.]
It's okay.

I just want Victor to be happy.

I want all my friends to be happy.

You, uh, seem to make Andrew very happy.

Oh, thanks.

[CHUCKLES.]

To be honest, I'm surprised
we've lasted this long.

Really? Why?
We're just so opposite.

Earlier this summer when we hooked up,
I just thought it was
gonna be, like, a hot fling.

And then suddenly I'm his girlfriend
Can I ask you something?
Sure.
Yeah.
What's up?
When we were at the cabin,
I saw you and Andrew outside together.

And it just seemed like I don't know.

There was something about the way
you were looking at each other
Is there something going on?
We hooked up once.

A long time ago.
But there's
nothing between us now.

I swear.

Hmm.

Is that, "Hmm, that's so random.
"
Or, "Hmm, hold my earrings.

I'm about to clock a bitch.
"
- [BOTH LAUGHING.]

- No, it's fine.
Um, I'm just surprised.

Andrew never mentioned it.

I'm, I'm sure he just didn't
want to make you feel weird.

I don't.
I mean, feel weird.

I should feel a little
weird, though, shouldn't I?
I mean, if I really cared
about this relationship,
shouldn't I, like, feel something?
I shouldn't have said anything.

No.
No, I'm really glad that you did.

This is really helpful.

[LUCY SIGHS.]

But you found somebody new ♪
That was divine.

The perfect meal on the perfect plates.

Très chic.
Where did you get them?
Oh, thank you.
They're family heirlooms.

- LAKE: Mmm.

- So, who wants dessert?
Oh, uh, thank you, but I
should probably get going.

We have a test on the
Hundred Years' War tomorrow
and pretty much all I
know is how long it is.

It's actually a hundred
and sixteen years.

Are you freaking kidding me?
Oh.

I'm sure Lake will be back soon, Mom.

I'm gonna start cleaning up.

Well, hey, she's like
me, you know? Always
down to keep partying.
[LAUGHS.]

I want you to have these.

And if you give me a couple minutes,
I can wash the ones
that we used tonight,
and then you can take those home, too.

- FELIX: What are you talking about, Mom?
- It's j
- Those are our plates.

- Well, I, I know, but she likes 'em,
and I want her to have them.

Felix, help me find a box.

She's not taking our plates, Mom.

Felix, I told you,
she likes 'em, and I
want her to have 'em.

- [DAWN MUTTERING.]

- [PLATES CLATTERING.]

Did you take your
medication this morning?
Why are you asking me that?
Are you trying to embarrass me?
No! I mean, um, I'm, I'm sure he's not.

Uh [SIGHS.]
You know,
this is just so generous,
and, you know, we have our
own family heirloom plates.

I, I wouldn't want there
to be any heirloom envy
- You know what? Fine!
- [SHATTERING.]

I ju I Oh, God.

[INHALES SHAKILY, THEN SIGHS.]

Um it was
It was really nice to meet you, Lake.

Really.

- [FOOTSTEPS DEPARTING.]

- [DOOR SLAMS.]

- [EXHALES.]

- [CLINKING.]

- Felix.
Felix, are you okay?
- Yeah.

- Yeah, no.
Um
- Here.

You know, this just
it happens sometimes.

When, uh, she takes new medication,
she comes out of her depression,
and then she stops taking it,
and then she has a manic episode.

You know, I don't even
know why I thought this time
would be different.
[LAUGHS.]
Um
- I
- I think we need to get you some help.

The new medication was working.

She just needs to take it.

I'll get her back on them.

Okay.
Well, this is serious,
and, and I just really think
- it's too much for you to handle.

- N no.

No.

I have been handling this alone
for years.

I need you to promise me you
won't tell anyone what happened.

I promise.

Okay.

- [CLINKING.]

- [FELIX EXHALES.]

[SIGHS.]

[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]

[PHONE CHIMES.]

Uh, hello?
[DISTANT CHATTER.]

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]

Uh, what's going on?
Well, I had a long talk with the
guys about you rejoining the team.

And, and this is our way of saying that
you can be as gay as you want,
in whatever way that you want,
and we will forever stan you.

TEDDY: And if you're
gay, then so am I.

So are all of us.

We're gay AF.

No.
Not what we talked about, Teddy.

[TEDDY CHUCKLES.]

So, where's where's Wyatt?
The team wasn't a good
fit for him anymore.

Wow.
[CHUCKLES.]

And I'm sorry, man.

You can watch me shower any day.

- I don't mind.

- Oh
No, no, I-I really don't
want to watch you shower.

Okay.
Well, you don't have
to decide right now.
So
- All right.
Well
- ANDREW: Victor, come on.

[ALL CHATTERING.]

- TEDDY: Welcome back.

- Whew!
- All right.

- [CLAPPING.]

Let's hope this looks better
on you than it does on me.

It definitely will.
[LAUGHS.]

You guys, this stuff better wash out.

I got a court date on Monday!
Oh, I wasn't supposed to say that.

Everyone just move it, move it ♪

That pink hair seems
to be doing the trick.

Wow.
I like your hair.

Ah, thanks.
[LAUGHS.]

I didn't think you were gonna come.

- I I know this isn't really your scene, but um
- Victor, um,
I'm really sorry about
all those stupid jokes.

If basketball makes you happy, well
That makes me a basketball boyfriend.

for making fun of athletes.

[DOOR OPENS.]

GEORGINA: Lakey.
Hi! Did you watch?
I crushed it on Good Morning Atlanta.

I interviewed Sarah
Jessica Parker over Skype,
and she said I had pretty eyes.

- Hey, what's wrong?
- Nothing.

Congratulations on the show.

Lake, you know that you can
talk to me about anything, right?
[LOCKER SHUTS.]

It's good to have you back, Salazar.

- You really are the second best player on the team.

- [VICTOR LAUGHS.]

Okay, Andrew.

Hey, babe.

What's wrong?
Hey, uh, we need to talk.

ISABEL: I am so sorry I'm late.

I changed four times before coming here.

What do you wear to a sort
of date with your husband
who you're sort of separated from,
but definitely had full-on sex with?
ARMANDO: [LAUGHS.]
Well, uh
- I always liked you in green.

- Oh.
Well, thank you.

I'm happy we're doing this.

I miss you.

I miss you, too.

Okay, Mando, I'm just
gonna jump right in.

Okay.

The affair with Roger
It broke something,
and that is my fault.

And I am so sorry that I,
I pressured you so hard to get over it.

No.
But our problems
started before that.

Yeah, I-I think the real
reason we separated was because
we were stuck in a pattern,
and the only way to get
un-stuck is if we both change.

That's why I keep asking
you to come to PFLAG with me.

And every time you say no,
it just feels like you
don't want to change.

I do want to.

I went to see Father Lawrence yesterday,
to talk about everything.

How'd it go?
He said if Victor chooses this path,
that he will never know God's love.

And I'm thinking, how can that be?
He is such a good son.
He
is such a good person
Why is this happening to him?
Is Isa, it's not
happening to him, okay?
It's just who he is.

You know, this whole
thing with Victor, it's
It's made me really look at myself,
and really try and change.

But if you're not
going to change with me,
I don't know what the future holds.

Andrew.
What are you doing here?
Lucy broke up with me.

She spent one night talking to you,
- and she broke up with me.

- [SIGHS.]
Oh, my God.

I'm so sorry.

Lucy, she asked me if anything
had ever happened between us,
and I felt like I had to be honest.

- But I really never meant to
- Mia
Yes?
It's okay.

- It is?
- Yeah.

Why is your hair pink?
I was trying to make
things right with Victor.

Which is actually your fault, too.

Why is that my fault?
For as long as I can remember,
anytime I wanted to
take the easy way out,
there was always this annoying
voice in the back of my head,
pushing me to do better.
To be better.

You know whose voice that is?
Even when you're not around
me, I always hear you.

So, when Lucy ended it,
I figured, hey.

I've taken a million shots with you,
but I am about to
take a million and one.

Mia.
Mia, will, will you
It's something about
you that's so familiar ♪
Something that's got
me wanting to know you ♪
