Magnum P.I. (2018) s04e14 Episode Script

Run, Baby, Run

1 Well done.
You are improving.
Or I've regressed.
Well, I don't know about that.
You nearly got me with that flèche.
Well, I'm off to ice all these bruises you dealt me.
Same time next week? Yeah, I look forward to it, Kim.
Hey, Kim.
How are you? Looking good, man.
Looking good.
- Magnum, what are you doing here? - Uh, it's-it's a funny story.
I actually saw "fencing" on the calendar, and I figured that, you know, given my role as head of security, I should probably show up, right? Right.
Wrong sort of fencing.
And, uh, either way, you're 30 minutes late.
Also, I'm just kidding, but I was very happy I saw that whole exchange, I mean it's pretty impressive.
Although, you know, fencing, I hear, is one of the easier sports to get into in the Olympics.
Something about it not requiring much skill.
I know what you're doing, Magnum.
You're trying to bait me into challenging you to a bout.
It won't work.
No, w-why would I do that? I mean, you're obviously a skilled fencer.
I wouldn't stand a chance against you.
Although, I mean, yeah.
I guess we'll never really know.
- Will we? - Okay.
All right.
First to ten points.
But what's the point? Every time I stick you with the tip of my foil, it's a point.
But I wouldn't worry.
It's not gonna take long.
En garde.
I stand corrected.
Did I tell you I had extensive edged weapons training in the service? Although the swords weren't really bendy like this.
That's a penalty.
- You broke the rules.
- What rules? You can't touch my body with your body.
You touched me first.
In fact, you're still touching me.
I did not touch you.
I would never touch you.
Why? Is it not a dream? Touché.
Okay, uh We're gonna have to call this a draw, because my old friend is calling me and he really wants to see me.
Well, that's convenient.
We actually have to go together.
If he wants to see me this badly, it probably means there's a job for us.
Come on.
Grab your coat And get your hat Leave your worry on the doorstep Just direct your feet To the sunny Sunny side of the street.
So What do you think? Well, I think that if I wanted to be in the business of appraising instruments, I would've opened a pawn shop.
A '72 Kamaka, in that condition, is easily worth three grand.
Throw in the 600 cash I brought, and that's just enough to cover the collateral on the bond.
All right, I'll post bond and make sure he's released by the end of the day.
Thanks, Melvin.
You're a lifesaver.
Oh, there he is.
Best P.
on the island.
Or the best P.
that would take your call on a short notice, huh? Good to see you.
You, too.
Uh, Higgins, this is The one and only Melvin Machado.
It's pleasure to make your acquaintance.
- You, too.
- Yeah.
Melvin threw a lot of work my way early on when I was trying to get started.
If it wasn't for those early skip tracing jobs, I probably would not have been able to stay afloat.
Well, I'm glad you remember that, 'cause I was actually hoping you could return the favor.
Of course.
What do you need? One of my clients missed her court date.
If I don't produce her in the next 24 hours, I'm out the entire 250K bond.
Two-fifty? Ouch.
Don't you usually have five days to return a skip before the bail is forfeited? All right, I'm gonna be honest with you.
I had someone else on the job originally, but the guy went AWOL on me after asking for a cash advance.
Who is it? Jimmy Wu.
Okay, Jimmy Wu.
He's good at getting his guy.
Although he does have his share of vices.
He's probably already blown that advance betting on college hoops and is sleeping off a hangover somewhere.
In retrospect, agreeing to that cash advance was probably not my best decision.
Neither was posting bond, for this skip.
But she seemed like a safe bet.
You know, ties to the island, low flight risk.
Stella Torres.
And what's she out on bail for? About six months back, she gets pulled over for speeding.
The cops find an unlicensed gun, a bunch of cash.
And just to make matters worse, she resists arrest.
Even still, $250,000 is the kind of bail they set for serious felonies like murder.
Do you have any idea why it was set so high? Couldn't tell you.
What I do know is I can't afford to eat a quarter-million-dollar loss.
If you don't bring Ms.
Torres back by the end of the day, I could lose my business.
Well, obviously, we can't make any guarantees, but we will do everything we can to get your skip back.
That's a promise.
Thanks, kid.
You got all your textbooks, right? Yeah.
If they weighed any more, they might dislocate my shoulder.
Okay, what about everything else? Pencils and pens? - Yep.
- Okay.
Uh, notebooks and binders? - Check and check.
- Okay.
You got a "snickity snack" for recess? It's high school, dude.
I'm pretty sure there's no recess.
What am I thinking? Uh What's that for? Well, you're too good for my honey-glazed turkey and Swiss, so I'm guessing you're gonna have to grab something from the cafeteria.
I can't take your money.
Not after everything you've already done for me.
Look, if this whole foster thing is gonna work, then you gonna have to get comfortable with me looking out for you.
With that said, I'm only springing for lunch 'cause it's your first day.
Tomorrow, it's peanut butter and jelly.
All right.
I really do appreciate it.
You know, it's totally normal to be a little nervous.
But if you've been fending for yourself out here in the streets, then high school should be a breeze.
Look, just be yourself and people will see what a solid dude you are.
Do you even remember what high school was like? Must have been, like, 40 years ago? Oh.
All right, I'm off.
Give me my 20 back.
Uh, no, no, no.
Hold on, hold on.
I got to take a photo first.
All right.
You can't be serious.
Oh, I'm dead serious.
Hold it up.
Hold on.
Yeah, yeah.
Ow! Okay, enough with the pictures now? Hey.
Heard you're starting classes at McKinley today.
My son Dennis is a senior.
Said he'd catch up with you today - and show you the ropes.
- See? There's one person you know already.
Thanks, Mr.
I'll see you, TC.
- "Mr.
Katsumoto," huh? - Hey, I wish I could say I taught the kid his manners, but he came that way.
Well, I'm glad to see things are working out.
Well, that's all thanks to your advice.
Look, I know I didn't appreciate it at the time, but you clearly had everyone's best interests in mind when you pushed me to help Cade the right way.
And that's actually why I'm here.
Got a phone call from Social Services yesterday.
Before the agency can approve your application, they need to be sure that a reasonable effort's been made to locate and notify Cade's mother Monica Jensen.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm gonna be spending the day trying to track the woman down.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Of course.
Hey, Gordie.
H-Hold up.
Look, if Cade's mother's out there I want to help you find her.
You sure about that? Yeah.
So where do we start? So I ran our skip's cell.
It seems there is one number that she called rather frequently, but it's unlisted.
- Give it a call.
- Yeah.
You've reached Sergeant Wayne Nix with HPD's Narcotics and Vice Division.
Please leave a message.
Why would Stella be in regular contact with an HPD Narcotics officer? There's only one way to find out.
- Hello.
- Hi.
My name is Thomas Magnum and this is my partner Juliet Higgins.
We're private investigators, and we'd love to have a word with Sergeant Nix if possible.
He's still asleep.
Is there something that I can help you with? It's okay, hon.
I'm up.
Come on in.
Can I get you all some coffee? Think we're good, thank you.
Thank you, though.
Sorry I'm not more presentable.
Was up late working a drug raid.
So, how can I help you guys? We've been hired to track down a skip named Stella Torres.
Prior to her arrest, she seemed to have a lot of contact with you.
That's true.
She did.
Mind if we ask why? Well, that arrest wasn't Stella's first.
A couple years back we busted her for possession with, uh, intent to distribute.
She was looking at five years mandatory.
And that was all the leverage we needed to get her to work for us.
Okay, so she was - a criminal informant? - Yeah.
She was good at it, too.
But it's usually just a matter of time before a C.
slips up and reverts to their old ways.
Stella was pulled over with an unlicensed gun, 30K in cash.
The kind of money you use for a drug buy.
I could've gotten her off if she hadn't assaulted the arresting officer.
We knew that she had resisted arrest, but assaulting a cop would explain her high bail amount.
Stella's meltdown landed her in lockdown, and before I even had a chance to check on her, she had posted and disappeared.
So you're not surprised she skipped her court date.
The surprise would've been if she actually showed.
Especially since she split for the mainland months ago.
What makes you think that? It appears as though Stella left the island shortly after her arrest, and has been bouncing around the country ever since.
As of three days ago, she was in Atlanta.
Well, hold on.
Go back to that picture right there.
Uh, right there, that's the River Walk in San Antonio.
You notice how this grass is covered in pollen? Okay, so? Well, anybody's who's spent time in San Antonio knows that that pollen comes from mountain cedar trees.
In the fall.
And the photo was posted in August.
According to the metadata, the photo was taken in 2019.
I-I bet if you looked at all her pictures, they all predate her arrest.
So Stella is trying to make it look as if she's on the mainland when, in actuality, she never left the island.
I mean, it makes sense.
Once you're on bail, you can't leave the island.
What is it? Stella started posting these travel photos months ago, right? The fact that this ruse started just after she posted bail makes me think that it's not just law enforcement she's trying to mislead.
We got to do a deep dive on Stella, see if we can figure out where she's staying.
I'll hack into utilities, see if there are any bills in her name.
Look at that.
She's been paying an electricity bill at a house in Nanakuli.
Magnum, over here.
Well, that's a lot of blood.
He's down.
His pulse is dangerously low.
No signal.
That must be why he couldn't call for help.
Let's see if I can find some I.
Don't worry about it.
I know him.
That's Jimmy Wu.
The bounty hunter that Melvin sent after Stella? So he didn't go AWOL with Melvin's money, then.
No, I think he found Stella and she tried to kill him.
I'm gonna go outside, see if I can find a signal and call EMS.
Hey, Lia.
- Thomas, what are you doing here? - Working a case.
Looking for a skip named Stella Torres and instead found a bounty hunter shot and left for dead.
It's sad.
Well, it looks like your skip tracing job just became my attempted murder case.
And your skip is our prime suspect.
Well, I guess we're gonna have to work together on this one.
It worked out pretty well last time.
Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves? Of course.
Hey, where's Higgins? Bit of an odd time to be looking for a snack.
I take it you've already been through the house.
What'd you find? Well, there's no food in the refrigerator and the cupboards are empty as well.
I guess our girl isn't one for dining at home.
Maybe, or maybe she hasn't been here in some time.
It takes months for that much sediment to build up in pipes.
Okay, so if Stella wasn't here, who shot the bounty hunter? Well, Stella was arrested with 30K in cash and an unlicensed gun.
According to the officer she was working for as a C.
, he seems to think that money was for a drug deal.
In which case, Stella could be on the run from whoever that money belonged to.
Could be that person came looking for her here and crossed paths with the bounty hunter.
The cop you spoke to, what's his name? Uh, Sergeant Nix.
He's with Narcotics.
Okay, I'll check in with him.
See if he has any idea who Stella was moving drugs for.
You find this girl, you let me know.
Right away.
Of course.
Is it just me, or was Lia acting cold back there? Perhaps.
I don't get it.
We both decided it was best to end things.
Yes, but I suspect she still has some residual feelings.
You know, seeing you triggers an emotional response, reminding her of what you guys had.
Just give her some time, she'll sort through her feelings, and you guys will be fine.
Now enough of your relationship or the lack thereof.
Look at what I found in Stella's bathroom cabinet.
Digoxin tablets.
- Heart medicine, right? - Yeah, for arrhythmia.
But they have to be taken every single day.
And this prescription expired months ago.
So if we find out where she refilled her prescription, maybe we find Stella.
You know, if we find Monica, I'd like to ask her how she could just abandon her kid like that.
Well, it's hard to know what the woman was going through.
Yeah, I guess so.
Hey, listen.
I get why you came along.
If I was in your situation, I would want to be here, too.
But if we find Monica, you got to keep your emotions in check.
Okay, what kind of car are we looking for again? According to DMV records, she owned a 1997 Toyota Camry.
And why do we think it's here? Registration expired four years ago, and there's no record of a change in ownership.
That's it? Her VIN's the only lead we got right now, okay? Okay, gumshoe.
Here we go.
Your Camry was reported abandoned on Kalaloa near Pearl Harbor on January 30, 2018.
That's the same day Monica split on Cade.
And that part of town's known as a high drug trafficking area.
Any chance the car's still here? I'm afraid not.
No one ever claimed it.
And it was in such poor condition, it was scrapped instead of being sold at auction.
So that's it? Dead end? Maybe not.
Standard procedure is to photograph the contents of the car before it's scrapped.
You got anything in the file? I got to get back out there.
- Take your time.
- Thank you.
Glass pipe, burnt foil paper.
I can't believe he was living like that.
He never told me about it.
When I first found out my sister was using, I didn't say a word to anyone.
Told myself I was respecting her privacy, but really, I was just ashamed.
You see that? That looks like the stub for a welfare check.
Made out to an Ike Tonyan.
Could be someone Monica used to score with.
Okay, looks like Stella's been holing up in a cabin on the Ewa Forest Reserve.
Hey, Lia.
You're on with me and Higgins.
- Any news? - Afraid so.
I just got a call from the EMTs.
Jimmy Wu died en route to the hospital.
Here I am going around bad-mouthing the guy like he ripped me off.
The whole time he's bleeding out somewhere on a job I sent him on.
HPD is doing everything that they can to apprehend Jimmy's killer.
And, look, we may have a lead on Stella's location, so with any luck, we'll have her in custody soon.
What is it? I just got a text from Jimmy.
He must have texted you after he was shot.
And then HPD powered up the phone, and it finally got some signal and the message came through.
"QGR 417.
" That's a plate.
The only reason Jimmy would have to text Melvin that number is if it was a lead on whoever shot him.
Yeah, I mean, he must have spotted somebody tailing him and wrote down the plate.
Okay, that license plate is registered to Wayne Nix.
Why would Sergeant Nix be tailing the bounty hunter that was looking for his former C.
? I don't know, but Sergeant Nix obviously wasn't being entirely honest with us.
We have to fill in Lia.
Actually, I think we've got to do more than that.
I mean, Lia's already on shaky ground, and now she's got to investigate a fellow officer? We have to make sure she has somebody that she can trust.
Good point.
We also have to find Stella fast or Melvin's gonna forfeit his entire bail bond.
Plus, I suspect Stella might be in danger.
Well, it's a good thing there's two of us.
I think I know why you're here.
I powered up Jimmy Wu's phone and saw the text he sent the bail bondsman.
Sergeant Nix is involved in this, I just don't know how.
Here's what we do know.
Nix either wanted to keep Wu from finding Stella or he was looking for her himself.
Those are the only reasons he would have for tailing Wu.
Yeah, except now I got to find out why he wants the girl, and that means going up against a cop who outranks me.
I know your reputation has taken a hit as of late.
No, it's not just that.
Narcotics and Homicide work together all the time, so I don't even know which detectives I can trust on this.
Okay, well, now this is our problem, all right? Thomas and I have both agreed that one of us should help you look into Nix and get to the bottom of this.
And you drew the short straw? I Relax.
It's no secret things are kind of awkward between me and Thomas right now.
Lia, for what it's worth, this was Thomas's idea.
And the only reason that he isn't here, too, is because we have a lead on Stella's location.
Wait, the last person who went looking for Stella got himself killed.
Thomas can't go there alone.
He's not.
Look at you, all dressed for the occasion.
Nice vest, by the way.
Oh, this old thing? Also, thanks for parking away from the house.
Well, it's not my first rodeo.
Wouldn't do us any good if the skip saw us coming, would it? Hands where I can see them.
My name is Thomas Magnum, I'm a private investigator.
I'm here to take you in on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court.
If Wayne put you up to this, you can't let him know that you found me.
Look, no one's gonna hurt you, okay? It's not me that I'm worried about.
When I first met Wayne, I thought he was my saving grace.
I'd just been arrested on a drug charge, and with my priors, I was looking at serious time.
Taking the deal he offered seemed like the smart move.
Now I know it was the worst mistake I've ever made in my life.
What happened? He'd put me in dangerous situations and then use the intel I gave him to rip off drug dealers.
Yeah, he runs the HPD drug task force, and if he's shady, it's safe to assume half the guys that work for him are, too.
Wayne's untouchable.
And he made sure that I knew it, too.
I was terrified of him.
So when he started making advances towards me, I just went along with it.
I'm sorry, Stella.
When I couldn't see a way out, I just I started looking for a different kind of escape.
Almost started using again.
But then he happened.
And suddenly, your life isn't the only one you're fighting for.
He was the wake-up call that I needed.
I started making plans to leave, but then Wayne found out about the baby.
The cops he had trailing me must have seen me visit the obstetrician.
Wait, he had guys following you? All the time.
When Wayne confronted me about the pregnancy, I just grabbed some cash and a gun and I ran.
But before I could get far, a squad car pulled me over.
So the arresting officers worked for Nix.
That's why you put up a fight.
Only, I didn't touch them.
They made up the assault charge to jack up my bail.
It was Wayne sending me a message.
So, I posted bond and I've been hiding ever since, praying that Wayne wouldn't find me.
He got his C.
pregnant? Yeah, a C.
he's been desperately trying to track down.
Well, it's safe to say that he does not want Stella to have this baby.
I mean, it's easy for Nix to deny the claims of a convicted felon, but it is awfully hard to rebut a paternity test.
Yeah, exactly.
If she gives birth, I.
's gonna be all over Nix.
And all the shady stuff he's done in the past is gonna come to light.
Well, it's a good thing you and Rick got to her first.
Well, you know, obviously she's not very trusting of law enforcement at the moment, so, uh, to keep her safe, Rick and I are gonna take her back to Robin's Nest until Nix is in custody.
And in the meantime, Lia and I are gonna head back to Nix's house.
All right, well, stay safe, both of you, and, uh, we'll be in touch.
Yeah, we will.
I think maybe it's possible I may have been a little cold - toward Thomas.
- Oh? I have, haven't I? I mean, things may not have worked out between us but He's still a good guy.
He is.
I mean, he can be completely maddening to work with, but at the end of the day, there is nothing he wouldn't do for his friends.
And, Lia, he does consider you one of those.
I guess I just need more time.
It's still kind of raw, you know? Yeah, I mean, as it should be.
It hurts because, you know, what you guys had really meant something.
And as far as I'm concerned, those are the only relationships worth pursuing.
If I hadn't said this before, I'm really grateful for your help on this case.
You haven't, but you are welcome.
Ike Tonyan? You have a minute? Uh, yeah, sure.
Um, my N.
group starts in about five, though, so No, this won't take long.
We just want to know, when's the last time you saw Monica Jensen? Hey, you okay? Sorry, uh that was a lifetime ago.
Um I was a different person.
You mean, an addict? Oh, well, I'm still an addict.
I'm just a recovering one now.
Um, I've been clean over three years.
I take it you and Monica used to get high together? Well, yeah, but it was it it was more than that.
Sh-She was a friend.
W-We tried to look out for each other.
O-One day we, uh we scored some dope and we went to an abandoned building to shoot up.
And when the sun went down, it-it got cold and so we made this little fire so that we could stay warm.
Then we we shot up again and we fell asleep.
Next thing I remember, I'm waking up and I'm choking on smoke.
And the entire place is on fire.
I-I tried to wake her up, but she-she wouldn't move.
For years years I told myself that that she was already dead, that there was there was nothing that I could do, but That was just that was just me making excuses.
The truth is that I-I I panicked.
And I ran.
I'm guessing you didn't report what happened.
Which explains why the body was never identified.
That woman had a son.
She used to talk about him all the time.
She She said she was gonna get clean for him.
She didn't get a chance.
But I did.
Monica is the reason that I work with addicts today.
I'm gonna need you to come down to the station and give a statement.
All right.
We're good.
Let's go.
What's happening? Stella Torres? You're under arrest for the murder of Jimmy Wu.
Now, h-hold on.
I just got off the phone with Detective Kaleo.
She's the lead on this case, all right? She didn't say anything about sending a squad car.
Then take it up with her.
I have my orders.
Get your hands off her.
The hell do you think you're doing? I remember you.
You were at the crime scene, right? Now, the question is, did you tail me out here or did you track my cell phone? Rick.
Go ahead.
Put the bracelets on.
You're making a huge mistake.
If I am, I'm looking at some serious jail time, but if I'm not, it means you're freelancing with Nix.
I'm gonna call Detective Kaleo right now and I'm gonna find out if you're supposed to be out here.
I hope you're right about this.
There's no signal.
Me neither.
I think somebody's jamming it.
You really thought I came alone? Come on.
Go, go, go, go, go.
You all right? I don't know, I'm Something hurts.
Uh, probably Braxton Hicks contractions.
Uh, false labor usually brought on by stress.
Uh, father-to-be.
I know what to expect - when you're expecting.
- Still no signal.
We got to find somewhere we can hole up and make a phone call.
A-Are there any other houses around here? Um, there's one over that ridge.
Think you can make it? - Yeah.
- Yeah? Okay.
I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but like I said, the last time I saw Wayne was when you were here this morning.
What's this about, anyway? Your husband was having a sexual relationship with one of his C.
He got her pregnant, and we believe he shot and killed a man to prevent his secret from coming out.
Nix, we've just informed you that your husband has fathered a child with a C.
, and-and you have no reaction? I'm sorry.
What did you do? - Stay with her.
- No No.
He's not here.
I swear.
D Juliet.
Over here.
I swear I didn't know.
He just said that he had a C.
who wanted to give up her baby, but that it was complicated and I couldn't ask questions.
And that didn't raise any alarm bells for you? I don't blame Wayne for what he did.
After I found out I couldn't get pregnant, I started to push him away.
Oh, this is my fault.
Lady, that is all kinds of crazy.
You're gonna tell us where your husband is and you're gonna tell us now.
I really don't know.
But after you two left this morning, he told me there was something urgent that he needed to take care of and that I wouldn't be able to reach him.
He must be going after Stella.
I've got to let Magnum know.
Straight to voice mail.
We got to get this door open.
Can I help you? God, I hope so.
Just breathe.
Okay? Just breathe.
Stay calm.
Here you go.
Hello? Higgins, it's me.
Magnum, we've been trying to contact you.
Where are you? Yeah, Nix and his guys showed up.
We had to bail on foot.
Uh, we're at a neighbor's house, one klick east of Stella's cabin.
HPD and SWAT are already en route.
We'll redirect them to your 20.
Magnum, there's something else you need to know.
Lia and I paid a visit to Nix's wife.
He doesn't just want Stella out of the way.
He actually wants her baby.
He and his wife plan to raise it themselves.
Wha What? No.
W-We're not gonna let that happen.
Just hang tight.
We'll make sure to Phone died.
Nix and his men are outside.
Must have cut the power.
I know this looks grim, but we just got to hold them off until HPD gets here.
I think my water just broke.
Maybe I was wrong about the whole false labor thing before.
It's gonna be okay, it's gonna be okay.
- You'll be all right.
- I can't.
- I can't.
You're gonna be okay.
- Listen, gravity's not our friend right now.
Okay, I need you on your back.
I just need you to lay on your back.
Gonna need a pillow to prop her head up and any fresh towels that you have, please.
Yeah, sure.
I can't.
Not here.
- I can't have my baby like this.
- You're gonna be fine, you're gonna be fine, okay? Just breathe for me, all right? Hold your stomach, I need you to inhale on four.
I'll count.
Okay, you ready? And one, two, three, four.
Now exhale for six.
Three, four.
You need anything else? Good.
Now that you ask, you have any weapons? What kind of weapons? Eh, the kind that shoot bullets, preferably a lot of them, quickly.
Sorry, all I got's a compound bow that I use to hunt boar.
Compound bow, huh? Remember, I need the girl alive, so hold your fire around her.
Everybody else goes in the ground.
Go, go.
Take cover! Don't worry about that.
Just focus on me, okay? Breathe.
Breathe, okay? Get the girl! Now, this baby doesn't look like he wants to wait.
You ready to push? You're doing great.
I'm right here with you.
You're doing great.
Okay, you're doing great, you're doing great.
Just keep breathing, okay? Keep breathing.
That's it.
You're doing great.
I'm right here with you.
Breathe in, one, two, three.
You're doing good.
Keep breathing.
Sorry about that.
Okay, now push.
Push, push! Hi.
That's great.
Thanks for letting me know.
Good news.
Given the situation, the prosecuting attorney is dismissing all charges against Stella.
And the P.
is also asking the FBI to open an investigation on the narcotics task force.
Or whatever's left of it.
So if there are any remaining bad apples, they're gonna be sure to root them out.
I we got Melvin his bond back, we helped deliver a baby, we took down a-a bunch of crooked cops.
I mean, I say that we've earned at least one more round.
Oh, not for me.
I, actually, am going out for a drink.
Oh, where? I mean, maybe I'll join.
Uh maybe not this time? I'm actually meeting up with Lia.
After the day she's had, she said she could use a drink, so After the day she had? Mm.
My day was not exactly a walk in the park.
I know, Thomas, but she invited me out for a drink.
Was I supposed to say no? No, no, of course not.
You know, I actually think a girls' night out is-is good.
For both of you.
I think, yeah, given some time, she'll come around.
And she could probably use a friend right now.
Well, that's very mature of you.
Well, I am actually quite mature for my age.
If I do say so myself.
I'm just saying, you know, I am totally okay spending the night out here by myself, drinking an entire bottle of wine.
- No big deal.
- Good.
Well, thank you for your understanding, Thomas.
Well, get-get going.
You're eating into my me time.
Okay, well, enjoy your peace and quiet.
You know, this morning, when you said you were gonna look for Cade's mom, all I could think about was how it might affect me.
I was afraid you might actually find her.
Then this great kid that I got used to having around he wouldn't be in my life anymore.
And now I got to tell this kid that his mom's dead.
For four years, this kid woke up every day thinking his mother abandoned him.
Now he'll know she didn't.
You were right.
About school, I mean.
So it was good? Yeah.
Yeah, it was, uh, it was pretty cool.
Even being the new kid was all right.
Everyone was nice.
Oh, oh, and the basketball coach said I could try out even though it's the middle of the season.
That's great, man.
That's really great.
Your face doesn't seem to think so.
What's wrong? I got some news today.
I got some news about your mom.
What? Look, man, she, um She No.
