Heard that a block away.
So, how we gonna get it back? Get what back? ROCKWELL: We installed a car stereo, and the rich prick stiffed us on it.
Ty, is that my hoodie? - It was in my room.

Close that.
Let's go.
[scraping] [door unlocks] [thunder cracks] What happened to Mama? I think her back is still hurting.
How was practice? Did you chop a board in half? [giggles] That's karate, not ballet.
[chuckles] That's right.
Is her back ever going to get better? She's been taking a lot of pills.
- Look, we're all gonna be okay.

It's work.

So, you thugging now? What? You feel like a big man now? No.
I just feel scared.
Look, man, we're gonna go take this back, okay? [police siren whoops] OFFICER: Don't move.
Run! [siren wailing] NATHAN: If you shut the rig down, three very bad things are going to happen.
Number one, structural collapse.
And when the legs buckle, and the hull hits the water, that'll cause number two.
- [tires squeal] - A very large explosion.
And those two, they don't even compare to number three.
Complete energy dispersion.
Are you following? Come on, come on! [panting] - [tires screeching] - BILLY: Come on, let's go! OFFICER: 181, we're code six with two suspects.

These things belong to my husband! These things belong to the Roxxon Corporation.
We're taking them back.
MELISSA: Trip, tell them they can't do this.
This says they can.
Roxxon is placing the blame of the oil rig explosion on Nathan, saying he went rogue on some research project.
MELISSA: What about our insurance? TRIP: It's through the company.
MELISSA: And the house? TRIP: I'll find out what I can.
What do we do in the meantime? Just stay strong, okay? [train crossing bell dings] [car door opens] How'd we do? - We got five hundred.
- Five hundred? No, Liam, there's gotta be more.
That was a diamond necklace! Yeah, well, owner said that the diamond had micro-etching.
- Makes it traceable.
- What about the ballet tickets? That's $400 times two times a seasonal series of seven shows.
Well, they're useless in a week.
They get new barcodes.
Micro-etching? That's not a thing.
You got played! What's going on with you? Just hoping for more.
You need to blow off some steam.
I need to steal more shit.
Okay, I hear there's this party in the woods.
It's supposed to be pretty big.
[indistinct chatter] [school bell rings] [indistinct chatter] Tyrone.
Tyrone! Hey.
Hey, Evita.
The squad is throwing a party tonight in Culper Woods to celebrate you guys making State, and the rest of the girls made me promise to get you there.
They did? Give me your phone.
[scoffs] My phone? Look, after the game and everything Give me your phone.
Okay.
Here's my number, and a GPS pin for the party, and here are a bunch of emojis that don't actually mean anything, [chuckles] but should remind you that I'm a human being who you will let down if you flake.
- You got it? - I do.
Yeah.
Just, um why you? Specifically? Emojis.
[soft piano music] Hello? Anybody home? Anybody drunk? Passed out? All of the above? [phone camera clicks] [unzipping] [pills rattle] [hip-hop music] Wait on it Everybody watching while the clock still ticking I'm gonna make a move, I don't need no rhythm I'm gonna make a move, I don't need no rhythm - [distant shouting] - Wait on it Everybody watching while the clock still ticking I'm gonna make a move, I don't need no rhythm I'm gonna make a move, I don't need no rhythm I ain't never on the scene West side blowin on some collard greens Got a feelin so spent I can never take no rest I ain't never on the scene West side blowin on some collard greens [indistinct chattering] I can never take no rest [grunts] Jesus! I'm sorry.
I had a day, and it's possible I started this party too early.
Yeah, you don't say.
[groans] Your jacket.
Is it ruined? No.
Noah, truth be told, I never wear this thing.
Probably use a little more high school experience on it.
[chuckles] Well, you should wear it more often.
Hangs nicely off your shoulders.
Thanks.
What's your name? Tandy.
Did you know my dad named me after his first computer? I did not.
Hand to God.
How 'bout you? My mother's grandfather.
And his name was? Uh, yeah.
[chuckles] Yeah, Tyrone.
Well, Tyrone this thing is useless, so I'm gonna go get some proper towels.
Something a little more "absorbating.
" Absorbative.
[snickers] Yeah.
I'd appreciate that.
Okay.
EVITA: Tyrone! Hey, you made it! Emojis.
They they, uh, they hold power.
Come on.
Buy a girl a beer.
- That much power? Huh? - Mm-hmm.
[chuckles] Okay.
How much? Five bucks a cup.
Get one for her, please? What's wrong? My wallet.
It's TYRONE: Hey, blonde girl! EVITA: Wha [scoffs] [panting] [grunts] - [whooshing] - [Tandy exclaims] - [grunting] - [stone cracking] - [Tyrone panting] - [Tandy gasping] [Tyrone coughs] What did you do to me? What did I do? What was that? How should I know? Because your hands are doing the exact same thing, but Wait, are you that kid? From the beach? The beach? After the storm? - I gotta go.
- No, stop running.
Who are you? [gasps] [Tandy screaming] Hello? Uh Crazy white girl? [breathing hard] [metal creaking] [breathing heavily] [grunting] [sighs] - [patting] - [rustling] Do you believe in God? I just said his name a few times.
Liam, I'm serious.
God Heaven and angels.
Miracles.
I don't think so.
Did I ever tell you about that night? Car crash? No, not really.
- I mean, I know your dad - Died.
I really think I did, too.
Or, at least, I I should have, but There was this This what? This hand.
It reached out, and Forget it.
You know, you do that a lot.
Do what? You stop talking right when you're about to say something.
[birds chirping] [electricity buzzing] WATTS: We take any allegations of police misconduct quite seriously.
MR.
JOHNSON: Where's my other son? WATTS: Coast Guard found his body washed up last night.
What? Tissue test revealed drugs in his system.
- [Mrs.
Johnson gasps, sobs] - That's not true.
I want to see him.
- Yes, ma'am.
- Mom, Dad.
He's lying! You're lying and you know it.
One of them shot Billy.
I saw it.
We've got no evidence of that.
His body was in no state to look for bullet holes, but no officer fired a weapon that night.
Our search for video surveillance also turned up this.
[machine clicks] Tyrone? What what's what is this? Billy didn't do anything wrong.
He was just trying to help me.
And this cop just killed him.
WATTS: Red-headed? Scar on the left side of his face, that's what you said, right? That's what he looks like.
Son I've worked here for over 20 years.
I know everybody.
This cop you described, he doesn't exist.
CONNORS: Yeah, I'm on my way now.
No, they all seem receptive to the proposal.
It's a hell of a deal.
I got the real stuff with me.
I'll meet up with him later tonight.
All right.
All right, bye.
[cell phone ringing] [beeps] Vice.
Connors.
Yeah.
Okay.
Yeah.
Bye.

Yep! [whimpers] Son of a [hisses, moans] Hey, Mom.
Hi.
What are you doing here? It's been what? Two, three weeks? Oh, the pipes broke over at Liam's, so Finish your shift already? I finished my last shift.
That manager is an asshole.
Seems like all your managers are.
Right? But we don't need any of 'em.
This guy that I'm seeing? He's a lawyer.
Is this one married? He's noble, and he's smart, and he is gonna get us back into court again.
Mom, you know court has never been kind to us.
We're gonna buy that whole damn diner.
How's that sound to you? Yeah.
Yeah, sounds like a plan.
- Of sorts.
- Sweetheart, what happened to your hand? - You're bleeding.
- I'm fine.
- Let me look at it.
- Mom, I'm okay.
- [whooshing] - MISS AINSLEY: All right, girls.
To the barre.
[soft piano music playing] Oh, why don't you let Mommy try and help you? Around the front we tie it.
- And what do we do? - Bunny ears! A bunny ear.
And then another bunny ear.
Look at this little one.
She used to love dancing so much.
And we used to love watching her.
MELISSA: Everything was so perfect.
I loved you so much, and you loved me back.
Unconditionally.
And this one.
Oh, Nathan.
She used to be so full of hope.
[high-pitched ringing] What just happened? I don't know.
What do you mean? What do you mean, what do I mean? Did you not see that? No.
See what? Wha Well, we werback at the ballet, and Dad Did you really not see any of that? Tandy, are you okay? Yeah, I'm fine.

[sighs] - [footsteps] - [knocking] Hey.
- What you been up to? - English.
I'm reading The Outsiders.
How was school today? - Same as always, I guess.
- Well, I hope not.
I got a call from them.
They say you didn't show.
- It's okay.
- It most definitely is not okay.
I know it seems bad, but it was just one day of school.
It's not just one day of school.
I don't know what's going on with you lately.
That fight.
- You stumbling up the stairs last night.
- I wasn't stumbling.
And don't think I didn't smell your jacket.
It reeked of alcohol.
I was at a party with some kids from school, Mom.
- What kids? - Enough already, Ma.
Enough of what? The smothering.
I get it! I miss him, too.
I'd do anything to get him back, but what I feel is already enough weight.
Ma, I don't need yours, too.
Weight? I - Is that what I'm putting on you? - Yes! You and Dad! It's it's like you're afraid if if I don't do everything just right, perfectly, you're gonna lose me.
Oh, baby, I wish it were that easy.
I'm afraid that even if you do everything perfectly, I'm gonna lose you.
Mom.
You hear me on that? - You feel me? - Yeah.
Yeah, I do.
I, um - I'm sorry about school.
- Don't let it happen again, okay? No, ma'am.

You're welcome.

RICK: Hello, again.
[waves lapping] [seagulls cawing] RICK: Told you she'd use the tickets.
You know how I knew? Because this little townie bitch thinks we're idiots.
Dude, look, I'm sorry I jacked your stuff.
Oh, yeah? How sorry? [struggling] - [scratches] - [Rick grunts] RICK: Oh, that's how it's gonna be, huh? - [Rick grunting] - [Tandy panting] Now, I'll see you guys at home.
- GREGORY: Rick.
- RICK: Good night.
- [whimpering] - Don't cry.
Come on, it's not like we haven't kissed before, right? It was a pretty good kiss.
You owe me one.
[indistinct police radio] [car stops] [car door opens] [car door closes] CONNORS: If we're gonna do this, now's the time.
It's set to move from the evidence locker to the oven tomorrow.
They're gonna burn 20 keys of baby powder.
How do I know it's any good? I got the NOPD forensic test for the whole batch.
Legit evidence said it's 96% pure.

[whooshing] [grunts] [gunfire] [gate squeaks] Please.
Don't shoot! [gunfire] [panting] [light piano music] Starlight raining over me Like drifting through a memory Wake up in your crystal sky We're floating just to feel alive Starlight raining over me Like drifting through a memory Wake up in your crystal sky We'll float until we fly [vocalizing] Fly Hey Fly Slowly falling through the night Illuminating coastlines Headlights toward the afterlife Bright enough to shine Colors fade into the waves Swimming through reality I see your eyes above it all I can hear you call Starlight raining over me Like drifting through a memory
