Oh, yeah? Doing what? Coaching hockey.
That's cool.
Whereabouts? Portland.
[SCOFFS] - Portland? - Mmm.
Wow, how convenient.
Some guys I used to play hockey with, they're coaching down there, so I sent out a couple of e-mails just to test the waters, and, uh I mean, I haven't responded yet, but Yet? So you're considering it? It's a really good offer.
Look, hon, I'm not going anywhere.
It's just that it's nice to be asked, that's all.
Well, if that was all, you wouldn't have brought it up, right? I mean, I see us there, okay? You've seen it.
It's a gorgeous home, a fresh start.
It's even got this cute little French restaurant for lease right around the corner.
French restaurant? You've done your homework, huh? Yeah.
Look, honey a few times in life, opportunities present themselves to change your future for the better.
I think this is one of those times.
[LOUD ROCK MUSIC PLAYING ON CAR STEREO] [MUSIC STOPS] What are you doing, waiting for the bus? I thought you were mine today.
No, I have to work.
I'm opening for Aunt Charlie.
I didn't know child slavery was still a thing.
Just for the morning while she runs errands.
And does her hockey player boyfriend.
Seriously? Oh, come on, we all know she's sleeping with that hottie.
She's family, okay? It's weird.
Well, would you rather your family be sleeping with ugly people? No.
Are you excited for today? Please don't tell me you forgot about the barbecue.
Come on, we spoke about this and everyone is stoked for it.
That was before my dad got into the hospital.
There's no way I'm throwing a party here.
It's not a party, it's a barbecue.
It's like a charity event.
We're feeding the homeless less.
Okay, come on, you really need to let go of your stress and have some fun.
Do you remember that word, Maddie, "fun"? No.
It's not happening.
You know what? Let me talk to your dad.
Yeah, sure.
Give him a call in his fricking hospital bed, ask if we can throw a rager here with no chaperones.
No, not here.
There, at the beach.
Technically, it's public property.
I need access through your parking lot and a little bit of help setting up.
You're unbelievable.
Come on, the food is already bought, and the sun the sun has come out to play.
It's beautiful.
[MADDIE SIGHS] - First of all, the sun is barely out.
- You're right.
And second of all, the answer is no.
I gotta go.
I'm sorry, but you're gonna have to find somewhere else - to throw your party - Barbecue.
and it can't be here.
I gotta go.
No, the penguin behind you.
Yeah, come here.
Uh hey, Gwen.
Do you feel like helping me today? [HIGH-PITCHED WHINING] [GROANS] [WHIMPERING] [RINGING] Hello? Hello, Taylor? Taylor, can you hear me? Raji? What's going on? Nothing.
I'm fine.
I'm just having some issues.
I'll deal with it.
You don't sound fine.
I'm coming over.
So who's your ideal woman? [SCOUT LAUGHS] What do you mean? Like a celebrity, or maybe someone at school.
Who's your crush? Well, I had a girlfriend - back in Boston.
- Oh, this I did not know.
Please, spill.
Um, what do you want to know? Uh, her name for starters.
Alison, okay.
- How long were you guys going out for? - Uh, a few months.
But then I moved, so, um Yeah, we've been on a bit of a break.
You know, long-distance relationships never really work out.
[TAYLOR] None of this is good.
There could be a million things wrong with me.
I can't look anymore.
[RAJI] I told you not to do it.
My little brother got a cramp, and after ten minutes on the web, he was convinced he had ovarian cancer.
Maybe this is just stress.
It's a normal reaction to losing your mom and this big move.
I mean, it's a lot.
[TEARFULLY] I don't think you understand how bad this is.
I'm really messed up.
- Hello.
- Hey.
Homemade chicken noodle soup for our superhero.
What did I do to deserve this honor, huh? Well, I figured anything's better than what they're serving you in here, right? Mmm.
What's doing? Hmm? You know, um Charlie.
Something's something's going on here.
Come on, spill.
It's Alex.
Look, I know you don't like him.
Oh, boy.
He makes me really happy.
Are you sure? Yeah.
And he he just got offered this job.
Where, in the Czech Republic? - No.
- [JOHN CHUCKLING] In Portland, Oregon.
Portland? I have to figure out if I want to go with him, because I want to be with him.
What about The Slice? What What about us? I know, that's That's the dilemma, right? I don't know what to do.
Charlie I know I'm supposed to be happy for you, but, you know, this is just It's a lot to process so quickly.
I know.
It's a lot.
It's a lot for me too.
But if I remember correctly, I think you and Sarah moved to Boston and got engaged pretty quickly, right? Do not tell me you got engaged.
Okay, I won't.
[GWEN] Quiet before the storm.
Come, join me.
So you just randomly had all this stuff lying around, or No, I ordered it.
- I didn't know you can buy a party.
- You can buy anything.
No, you can't.
Yeah, you can.
I could buy you.
[CHUCKLING] No, you couldn't.
Everyone's got their price.
What's yours? [CELL PHONE RINGING] Sorry, hang on a sec.
- Oh, it's it's my dad.
- Oh, boo.
I got to go.
Gotta go see how he's doing.
- You're leaving? - Yes, but I'm gonna be back, okay? - Man of your word? - Man of my word.
- Man of my word.
- Okay.
[HENRY] Mmm.
- [MADDIE] Here you go.
- Ooh.
My favorite.
- Yeah.
- Hey, uh how's your dad? Uh he's okay.
I just haven't had a chance to see him today yet, though.
Have they let you know when he can come back? Did you ever follow up on that address I gave you for Rick Walker? The one in, um was it Fairfield? No, not yet.
Well, I mean, it's a motel, so it might be time-sensitive.
You don't want to miss out.
Look, I know the others were a dead end, but this one seems promising.
I have a good feeling.
I Do you want me to go with you? - And do what? - I don't know.
Security? Help give you closure.
Or maybe it'll just make things worse.
Half of me is in complete denial about my mom even cheating.
Yeah, but the other half is nagging for you to do it.
I think what you should do - you and I - [MADDIE] Stop.
- [CHARLIE] Hey, guys.
I'm back.
- Hey.
- How's Dad? - He's good.
Much better, actually.
Doctor said he can probably leave tomorrow, so fingers crossed.
Hey, have you asked her about it? No.
Well, Maddie, she was closer to your mom than anyone else.
She might know the guy.
- Yeah, maybe.
- Yeah.
That's what I would do.
[LINE RINGING] Hey, you've reached Coach.
I'm at a game, or I'm at a game.
Either way, I'm winning.
Leave a message.
[BEEPS] Hey, Coach, it's John West.
Listen, um, bad news, I got a little banged up.
I'm in the hospital.
- [LINE BEEPING] - I'm gonna be fine.
Yeah, I'm gonna be fine.
I just, uh, wanted to check in, say hi, and, um you know, come by, see me.
We'll We can talk shop, all right? All right, see you soon.
John, it's Delgado, Boston SAR.
Hope you're well, John.
Call me back - Hey, guys.
- Hey.
- There he is.
- You are looking good.
[JOHN] What's going on? Alan figured you'd be hungry, so we grabbed you this food.
I don't know what that is, but [ALAN] Yeah, I don't know what it is either.
But you know what? The good news is it's looks pre-chewed, so You brought me some hospital food? Don't worry about it.
We can get you something else.
[SIGHING] What is this? I need to talk to you.
I'm awake.
I'm awake.
Hey, son, what's going on? I just wanted to come in, see how you were doing.
Checking in on the old man, huh? Exactly.
How are your sisters? They're good.
Good, fine, yeah.
Charlie's really keeping us in line.
I'm sure of that.
Oh, by the way, I was checking the home security, and I saw you back at the house with this blond-haired girl.
Who was that? You were spying on us.
No! No, no.
The app pings every time somebody rings the doorbell.
Right, right, right.
- Who's the blond girl? - It was, uh, Gwen.
You help out all of Maddie's friends, or just the super cute ones? [LAUGHS] Um [STAMMERING] I mean, yeah, she's really cute.
I don't know.
You don't know what? Well, teenage girls are weird.
I really need your help with this.
That's a letter Mom wrote to her boyfriend.
Where did you get this? Mom sent it before she died.
I guess she got the wrong address, so they forwarded it here.
But I know where he is.
Has your, uh, dad seen this yet or No.
Not yet.
I'm scared of how he'll react.
Maddie, whatever you're thinking about doing don't, okay? He's not a good guy.
What do you mean, "not a good guy"? You know him? I need to talk to your father.
What? That's it? That's it.
[HENRY] What? So she just took the letter? [MADDIE] Yup.
Made me promise not to say anything.
Said she wanted to talk to my dad first.
- What is she hiding? - That's what I want to know.
- So you do want to know? - I don't know, maybe.
It's like Aunt Charlie put this big red button in front of my face and said, "Don't push it.
" What would you do? I'd probably press it.
So are we gonna go or what? - I want to.
- When? Soon.
I don't know, I just I have to think things through first.
Okay, look, take your time.
I mean, it is kind of time-sensitive, but just let me know what you decide.
Yeah, I will.
Could you do me a favor and check on Gwen? I feel bad for quashing her whole party-barbecue thing.
- Yeah.
- I hope she found another place.
I'll message her, I'll make an appearance, whatever.
You clear your head, and I'll - Just let me know, okay? - Okay.
[TAYLOR] What if I have the same thing my mom had? - What did she have? - Stomach cancer.
Is fainting a symptom? Of illness, yes.
Taylor, of that illness.
- Maybe not.
- Right.
I don't want to see you freaked out over nothing.
It's not nothing.
Well it's not something yet, okay? What if it's low blood sugar? Does low blood sugar cause you to wake up in strange places, not knowing how you got there? Whoa.
I know.
It used to happen to my mom too.
Really? What did she say about it? She didn't.
I read it in her journals.
You read your mom's journals? - Does that make me a bad person? - Yeah, a little.
But I kinda accepted that when we became friends, remember? So where are they? Can I see them? They're in my room.
Can I see them? I mean, to see if I can draw, you know, a genetic parallel with what you're going through.
Aren't you smart? I'll think about it.
[LOUD ROCK MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, have you seen Gwen? Gwen.
Are you kidding? [GWEN] What? Oh, thanks.
What are you doing? What are you thinking? Just having a party.
I told you about it.
It's a barbecue.
This is a lot more than a barbecue.
Oh, my God.
- Hey.
Maddie came to talk to me.
About what? Rick Walker.
She has his address.
[CELL PHONE CHIMES] You! What part of "find another place" didn't you understand? I couldn't stop people from coming.
I tried, Maddie, but it was way too last-minute.
No, no, no.
When'd you get the invite? - This afternoon.
Everyone got one.
- Mm-hmm.
Uh - Hey, can I get you anything? - Yeah, surprise me.
Have you seen your brother? - Gwen! - What? This is so not okay! Is that seriously all you have to say? Maddie, this is not your property, so stop raining on our fun and chill the F out.
Sex on the Beach? No, thank you.
Drink up.
Yeah, let's get lit! - [JASON LAUGHING] - [CROWD CHEERING] [JASON] Cheers to the Tibbers! Wow.
- [JASON] Yeah! Let's go, baby! - How did you not see that? [AGATHA GROANING] Didn't think I was going to get a workout today.
[CHUCKLES] Would you like some water? Yeah, that'd be great.
[CELL PHONE CHIMES] But we should get working on that computer.
[AGATHA] Oh, yes.
Oh, completely.
You drinking that right out of the bottle, eh? That's cool.
He's a badass guy.
I don't know.
- I just thought that maybe - [MADDIE GASPS] What the hell? - Wow.
Really nice, Maddie.
- [HENRY] Dude.
Hey, man - [MADDIE] I'm sorry.
- [GWEN] Come, let's go.
Very nice.
Very nice, Maddie.
[BOTH LAUGHING] He had it coming.
[SIGHS] So This looks good.
Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Are you serious? Slow down.
- What's gotten into you? - You don't think I've earned this? - [LAUGHS] - Ugh.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, you were right.
I shouldn't have done that.
Look, Maddie, you can't let her get to you.
I know.
I just feel like everything's spinning out of control.
I think you're gonna be fine.
Why don't you talk to John? Talk to your dad, let him know what's going on.
And say what? I'm co-hosting some weird sort of party-barbecue thing? Yeah.
I mean, I would probably focus on talking about the letter instead.
I'm so confused.
And kind of dizzy, and maybe a little bit drunk.
A little bit drunk? Okay, I'm a lot drunk.
Why don't we do this? Why don't you think about what I told you, I'll grab you some water, and we'll talk about it later.
Okay? You're the best.
[ON VOICEMAIL] John, it's Delgado, Boston SAR.
Hope you're not dodging my calls.
Sipowicz didn't work out.
If you're still interested in the command I hate to put pressure on you, but I need to know quickly.
So call me back or pick up.
Hey, I think I found it.
[SIGHS] What do I have? Well your symptoms match temporal lobe epilepsy.
Oh, God.
Symptoms? Déjà vu jamais vu, amnesia, unprovoked fear, anxiety synesthesia dysphoric feelings.
Is it fatal? Um You should probably tell someone.
I I can't.
I can't do it to them again.
We spent so much of last year in hospitals.
I I can't do it to them again.
Well, we don't know if it's this for sure.
And we won't know if you don't tell someone.
What if there's medicine or surgery? Is there? Um Oh, God.
I think it's time.
Time for what? To consult the journals.
You know nine out of ten penguins believe, including Tux, that we should know the genetic history of something.
Right, Tux? [CHITTERS] I promised myself I wouldn't read them anymore, but I guess this is kind of an exception.
[RAJI] There's so many.
- How are you feeling? - Good, Taylor, thanks.
Listen, I need you to do me a favor.
Okay? Sure.
Hey, Henry, have you seen Maddie? Yeah, she's just outside.
Come on.
Um, it's my dad.
He wants to talk to you.
- [WHISPERING] Oh, no, I'm just gonna - Take the phone.
- I don't - Take the phone.
- Henry, everything okay over there? - Yeah.
Why, what's up? Well, I've called Maddie several times and I haven't heard back.
Yeah, sure.
Just a sec.
Can you just wait here and watch Tux? She's got a tendency to run away.
- Yeah, sure.
- I'll be right back.
Uh, hey.
Yeah, yeah, no, it's She's just around the corner, I think.
Um Oh, man, she was just here.
[CELL PHONE CHIMES] Oh, hold on, I got a text.
- Damn it.
- Henry, what's going on? Talk to me.
John, um, she's not here.
She went to Fairfield, okay.
She's looking for someone.
Rick Walker? Yeah.
How did you Look, John, I have his address.
- Listen, can you drive? - Yes.
- You got a driver's license? - Yeah, yeah.
- Put Taylor on the phone.
- Of course.
Uh, yeah, you're on.
Hey, Dad.
Listen, Taylor, give Henry the keys to Rebel 1, okay? Right now.
Um, okay.
Come on.
[EXHALING] Come on.
- Heya, Charlie.
- Hey.
Who'd you say this car belonged to again? - It's Alex Turner, he's my - Yeah, your fiancé, you said that.
- Yeah.
- Uh Thing is car's not registered under his name.
Okay, so who is? You know, I'm not I'm not at liberty to say that.
But if I were you, I'd go home, get a bottle of wine, and ask my fiancé who owns this car.
Drive safe.
Oh, my God.
Oh, hey, there you are.
Took you long enough.
- I was starting to get bored.
- Oh, yeah? You find what you were looking for? Uh, yeah, we just had to borrow a shirt.
Hope you don't mind.
- [SCOUT] Uh, "we"? - Yeah.
It's the only one that kinda fit.
Jockstrap! You don't mind, do you? Him? Him? What, so did you guys hook up, is that it? I don't kiss and tell.
Oh, my God! - Dude, what the hell? - [GWEN] Scout! Scout! - [JASON] Relax.
- [GWEN] Stop! - [JASON] What the hell? - [GWEN] Oh, my God.
What is your problem? Dude, rela Oh! Scout, stop! That's enough! - [JASON GRUNTING] - Scout.
Scout, stop! Scout, that's enough! Get off! - Come on.
"The turn of the century.
" Whoa, the year 2000.
[TIRES SQUEALING] Dad, what are you doing here? - Maddie, just get in the truck.
- What's going on? - What? Why? - We'll talk about it later.
- What's going on? - Just get in the truck.
- Dad - Listen to me.
"April 3rd.
Nothing about this is okay.
Charlie wants me to get out, now.
He's so angry and moody all the time.
He's not the same person I've known all these years.
" Is she talking about your dad? - [JOHN] We got things to talk about.
- [MADDIE] What, here? - [JOHN] Yes, get in the truck.
- [MADDIE] No.
[CLAPPING] [RICK] Oh, bravo.
That is some grade A parenting there.
Dad, that's the guy.
That's the guy that I saw with Mom.
I know.
Get in the truck.
Get in the truck.
- But why? - Get in the truck.
Do as you're told, you understand? - Why? Dad! - [JOHN] Now! [HENRY] Just get in.
Get in the truck.
What's going on, John? Cut the crap, Rick, you understand? What are you up to? I like the new look.
Stay away from my family.
[RICK] Oh, right, because I'd be a bad influence, huh? Why are you trying to talk to Sarah, huh? She needed something from me, I needed something from her.
Quid pro quo I think they call it.
Like what? - None of your business, that's what.
- She's my wife.
You understand? As I recall, there was a time where she chose me over you, you remember that, huh? What did you do? You chose a job, a career.
Bad move.
What kind of a man does that, huh? Are you a man? I bet there's nothing more that you want than to hit me, huh? Just like you hit Sarah? What kind of man does that? [TAYLOR, READING] "August 3rd.
He hit me.
He actually did it this time.
Charlie told me to call John.
It was the hardest thing I've ever done.
Why did I let John go?" If it wasn't your dad then who was it? See, I bet the payout would be sweet on a settlement like that.
Maybe Sarah might even come to her senses and leave you.
You know how hard it is for me not to want to complicate that life of yours when you disrespect me like that, huh? - What do you want, Rick? - [HENRY] Hey, just stop it.
Maddie! - Dad! Get off of me! - [JOHN] Why are you back? Because keeping secrets isn't a free service.
Sarah knows that.
What is he talking about, Dad? Johnny and I just have some secrets together, Madelyn.
Okay, I'm just waiting for your mom to bring me a check.
- [HENRY] Maddie - My mom is dead, you prick! So take that check and shove it up your ass! - [MADDIE] Let me go! - [JOHN] Get in the truck.
- [MADDIE] No.
- [JOHN] Get in the truck.
- Get her in the truck.
- [MADDIE] Stop it.
[MADDIE] No, Dad.
I'm fine.
I'm fine.
I'm fine.
She's dead, Rick.
Sarah's dead.
So she only has one surviving parent, huh? - What is he talking about? - Should I answer.
Dad! Who do you think she's calling for, huh? You or me? [MADDIE] What is he talking about? What am I talking about John, huh? Maybe I'll set up here in the TIB and clear things up for my daughter.
Dad what is he saying? [YELLING] Henry, let go of me! She seems pretty upset.
See, something tells me the courts would prefer my style of parenting, don't you? [GROANING] [MADDIE] What did you do? Stay away from my family.
Do you understand? John, we should get out of here.
Let's go.
Is it true? Is it true? Stay away from my family, Rick.
[SPITS] [ENGINE STARTS] [TIRES SQUEAL] [VOMITING] [COUGHING] [PANTING] [SOBS] [EXHALES] No matter what happens to us you know I love you, right? [DOOR OPENING] [JOHN] Maddie.
Maddie, wait.
Listen we were just trying to protect you.
I'm sorry.
I should have told you, I know.
Stop talking! Go away! I hate you! [TAYLOR SOBBING SOFTLY] [CELL PHONE RINGING] This is where it ends And this is where we part You asked me for a mile But only gave a yard I tried to pull you in You pushed me to the wall Walked me to the edge And let me take the fall I come apart As we say goodbye I feel the shock Take me by surprise [MADDIE] And just like that, exactly 180 days after my mother died You keep me up in the night [MADDIE] my life took a U-turn.
You keep me out in the streets No matter how much I carve away the pain [MADDIE] While discovering the truth about my mother, I lost everything I knew about myself.
I got so tired of all the pain Thought it was gone And then I saw you Just when I was Getting back up on my feet Your image fading out No longer on repeat But there's a side of love That turns me like a key I wonder where you are And if you think of me Then you appeared When I was at my best I felt my heart sinking in my chest I run away 'Cause I don't wanna let you know You keep me up in the night [MADDIE] Today, I woke up as me and tomorrow I'll be someone else's daughter.
Was it something I said? Was it something I'd done? I got so tired of all the pain Thought it was gone And then I saw you Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh And then I saw you Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh I run and I run and I run and I run And I run and I run away [KISSES] I run and I run and I run and I run And I run away I run and I run and I run and I run And I run away I run and I run and I run and I run And I run away Ooh-ooh-ooh Yes, I run and I run And I run and I run And I run away Yeah, I run and I run and I run And I run and I run away Then I saw you And then I saw you
