Ordinary Joe (2021) s01e09 Episode Script


1 Previously on "Ordinary Joe.
" The partners just decided, you're gonna finish your law degree.
I'm a working mom.
A long-distance working mom, actually and Perhaps you should focus on parenting rather than falling short and making excuses.
You are Jenny Banks.
And she would never let some surly professor walk all over her.
Housekeeping found this.
It wasn't in Bobby's room, though.
It was in yours.
Bobby only took that watch off to shower and have sex.
I didn't know to help you.
Joe, I slept with Bobby.
Seems like turning in Bobby may have more blowback than we thought.
I told you this how guys like Bobby Diaz operate.
Do you want to stay with me until it's safe to go home? I'd like that.
You better sneak back into your sister's room before your mom catches you.
I gotta go.
Oh, man.
Back to walking the beat again, huh? Yeah.
And I just got the final approval.
Takes years to become a detective, but apparently only a week to get your blues back.
Is that what you want? My uncle's gonna pissed, but it's my choice.
By the way, thank you for offering to help my mom cook Thanksgiving dinner.
Just be warned, there's no half-measures with her, okay? She's gonna treat you like one of her own, which means no escape.
I think I can get through Thanksgiving with your mom.
Did you know you can go see the Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons get blown up? - I did.
- That's so much helium.
Dad says we can all go.
That sounds so fun, honey.
Can I talk to your dad for a second? Sure.
What's I'll be right back, bud.
What's what's going on? Professor Holland invited me to work on a pro-bono case with her.
That's amazing.
What is it? It's a single mother who's serving 16 months because she lied to get her kid into a better public school.
I mean, I'd still technically just be an intern, but I think Professor Holland is giving me a second chance.
I'd have to dive in right away.
- You mean like - Like, today dive in.
Oh, so you, um You wouldn't be coming home for Thanksgiving? I want to.
You have no idea.
I should be with you and Chris.
But given my rocky start here, I don't feel like I have much of a choice.
No, it's okay.
I get it.
You know, I can manage Thanksgiving on my own.
It's it's not that many people.
You already sound exhausted.
You know, you shouldn't have to do this alone.
I know that we've talked about it before and never pulled the trigger.
But maybe it's time we get an aide for Chris.
We could find a nursing student.
Someone we can trust who's affordable.
And if we hustle, we might be able to find someone in time for the holiday.
I'm in.
- I love you.
- Love you too.
The holidays won't look the same without you, but we'll get through it.
My man! Joe! Those drums deserve better.
So Kokoro tells me that you are not performing at Amy's campaign event.
Kind of an important fundraiser.
You know, we sold a lot of tickets with the promise that you would be doing this Performing! Would it kill you to just play couple songs? Just a couple? [PANTS.]
It might.
What's going on? You know marriage.
- So you know.
- You know? Eric, did Amy tell you that she was sleeping with Bob? No.
Uh, the The hotel found Diaz's watch in her room.
And I just I put the pieces together.
- Why didn't you say anything? - I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry, man.
I I I didn't think that it was my place to tell you, okay? And and it was a lose-lose situation.
Look, I can't be in the middle of you two.
You know that I love you both too much.
- Yeah.
- Have you talked to her? - No.
- I get it.
Finding out that your spouse is lying to you is devastating.
You know, Adam didn't tell me that he didn't want kids until after we had got an egg donor and a surrogate.
It killed me.
I mean, I was so angry I couldn't even think straight.
And, um, instead of destroying all the furniture in my in my apartment, I took a deep breath, and I got a nice coffee drink, and I thought about what I wanted.
There's just one problem with that, Eric.
I have no idea what I want.
Actually, that's not true.
I know what I want.
I just want to get through Thanksgiving.
All right, you have to let me know if I use too much sugar 'cause I'm known to have a heavy pour.
I can't believe you do this all on your own every year.
Oh, I love it.
It's like my Super Bowl.
There it is, my Thanksgiving centerpiece.
It's a Kimbreau family tradition.
You expecting a call? Seen you check it like three times.
I'm sorry.
It's just force of habit.
Joe's father worked as a beat cop.
I would sit by the phone.
I guess I was just worried that, you know, something would happen and then something did.
And it's actually worse when your son is the one in uniform.
Oh, I I haven't thought of that.
Oh, don't listen to me.
I'm a worrier.
And watch that sugar! I'm gonna keep my eye on you! I told you.
Here you go.
Here's a card.
All right.
That way you have it if you need anything.
Okay? You one of the good ones? Uh, unicorn, right? All right.
All right.
Very funny.
How you guys doing? You need a hand? - Not from you.
- Jordan.
- What? The cops don't help us.
- All right.
Well, let's see if we can try and change that, okay? Yeah.
Easy for you to say.
Nobody ever comes when we call 911.
Look, I do this every time I'm assigned to a new beat.
All right? There's my name, my number.
That's my direct line.
If you need any help, you call me.
Boy, take the man's card.
Hello? Yo, Domino's, I need two pepperoni pizzas.
That's funny.
Try and use it for emergencies, okay? And I'll let the littering go this time.
Hey, man.
It gets better.
All right.
You know there's a thing called the Internet now? I'm sorry? If you're trying to hire an in-home aide A nursing student's a great idea.
- But we have a message board.
- Ahh.
You know, like, instead of paper.
Especially if you're looking to hire someone right away.
Did you see a pumpkin spice pod over here by the coffee maker? I did.
And now it's in my mug.
That was the last one.
- Well, you can buy some more.
- We cannot.
They stopped selling them after Thanksgiving.
Well, I'm sure there is some nutmeg around here somewhere.
It's fine.
Really, it's fine.
You're new here.
I get it.
Just next time, don't take the last one.
It's breakroom etiquette.
You were gonna take the last one.
I was.
I was.
But I'm a nurse.
You're a nursing student.
I bought them.
You did not.
Copy that, pumpkin spice.
Am I interrupting? No.
I was just, uh Uh, how was the doctor? A lot of tests.
The pain's at my ribs now.
So he wants to do some more scans.
But my shoulder's feeling better.
That's that's something.
Joe, I am Look, I know I hurt you, Joe.
I am I am so sorry.
I was feeling alone and overwhelmed and I thought you were cheating.
Well, I wasn't.
And look, I know I should have told you earlier about Zeke.
But come on, you can't blame me for what you did.
No, I'm not.
I'm not.
Look, there's no excuse for what I did.
Okay, look, it was a mistake.
A one-time mistake, Joe.
I love you so much.
Can you say something? Please? Do you hate me? I mean, are you sad? Are you angry? Yeah, I'm angry.
I'm beyond angry.
But we're about to have a house full of family.
And this isn't something we can talk our way out of before they get here.
- We'll cancel Thanksgiving.
- Oh, come on now.
No, and if you want, Joe, I will cancel this campaign.
I will.
Just tell me.
Okay, forget the fundraiser.
Forget it all.
- I will walk away from it.
- Do not cancel anything.
Let's just get through the holiday.
Uh, Mom and I made a list of all the things an aide should be able to do.
You guys thought of everything.
Very specific.
Hygiene conscious.
That's good.
- That's important.
- Enjoys outer space.
Right? I mean, who wouldn't? All right.
Let's see who checks some of these boxes.
We are going to be best friends.
And too much screen time is really bad for your brain.
She's gonna take away my iPad.
Thank you so much for coming.
You can see by the color-coding that at 3:15 p.
every day after your nap, it's homework time.
- Thank you for being here and taking time out of your day.
Such a good boy, aren't ya? I'm not a baby or a dog.
I'm nine! - Okay.
- Nine! Okay.
All right.
Thank you so much for coming.
- Nine! - And I'll just see you out.
- I didn't mean to - Thanks so much.
It ain't bringing me down, oh Get it off my shoulder Livin' like I told ya We'll find someone, bud.
I promise.
It ain't bringing me down, yeah Get it off my shoulder Livin' like I told ya - Hi.
- Hey.
- Here to steal more coffee.
- Oh.
- That was a joke.
- I'm Kinsley.
- Yeah.
And that is the guy I'm here to see.
- This is my room.
- Oh! [GASPS.]
Honestly, this is the coolest room I have ever seen.
But I think actually your Ursa Major is a little off.
Dad hung that one.
Well, I minored in astronomy.
- Hmm.
- Well, not technically, but I audited a bunch of classes.
And I have a great app on my phone.
Oh, my God.
"Guys and Dolls?" - Yeah.
- Are you kidding me?! I did "Guys and Dolls" when I was nine, too.
- I'm Nathan Detroit.
- No way! That's awesome.
What's your favorite musical? Go.
- "Spring Awakening.
" - "Dear Evan Hansen.
" BOTH: "Hamilton!" I'm in! Let's hire her.
- Oh.
- Oh, uh [CHUCKLES.]
I we should probably discuss it first, bud, and and talk to Mom, so What's to discuss? She checks every box.
And you need help now so you can cook and stuff.
Um, yes.
She's wonderful.
Uh Okay.
Well, why don't we look at today as a trial period, you know? Unless you You probably already have Thanksgiving plans.
Oh, no.
I'm cool.
My family is in Ohio.
And my boyfriend, he's at his parents'.
- Yeah.
- You know, he didn't exactly - extend the invite.
- Uh-huh.
I didn't want to be that girl who pushes - if you're not at that level - All right, we get it.
- You're available.
- Mm-hmm.
- Yeah.
- She can help me cut my food so you can be down by Grandpa.
Not to self, steer clear of Grandpa.
He's fine.
Grandpa's fine.
He's fine.
Oh! Yeah.
I had a good feeling about this.
Hello! I know what I'm grateful for.
A brother with six sports cars.
Celeste, can't you just knock like a normal person? I mean, do you always have to make an entrance? Yeah.
You have to change your password.
"Soldier On"? Mm, let's pick a deeper cut there, buddy.
Thank you for my limo.
That was so sweet.
I am gonna send you a case of my shampoo.
As the primary investor in your company, I already receive a case each month.
And if you want to get behind the wheel of an exotic German sports car, you have to learn how to drive stick.
You are so boring.
So is Amy home? No, she's, uh, out preparing for her fundraiser.
Then we can actually talk.
I am still processing the whole Bobby thing.
I mean, obviously, I expected infidelity.
- Can you just - But I was pretty sure it was gonna be the rockstar who cheated.
Look, I don't want to talk about this with Mom or Frank.
I don't even want them to know about this.
Please don't make me regret telling you.
Of course.
So can you forgive her? [SIGHS.]
I don't know.
- So divorce? - [LAUGHS.]
Oh, G - I don't know.
- Okay.
How long has it been since you two had sex? I do not want to talk to you about that.
That long.
- Longer.
- Joe, okay, here's the sum total of all that I've learned in my years and years of therapy that you paid for.
So thank you.
- Mm-hmm.
- You have to talk about it.
Celeste, in case it isn't painfully obvious by now, talking about it is the last thing that I want to do.
Of course.
Because holding onto our baggage, that's, like, in our DNA.
That was our Dad's problem.
And I'm not saying you shouldn't be mad at Amy.
Of course you're mad at her.
I'm mad at her for you.
But, Joe, you got to make a decision.
So you just end things with her or you find a way.
You find some way to move past it.
- Check the corners! - Ahh! Ow! Ahh! Yeah! Can you just hug me like a normal person? Oh, you missed me, Broseph? Your sister's here.
- I know! - Oh, you missed me, Broseph? You've lost your mind.
Careful, don't hurt your brother.
Yes, you did miss me, miss me.
- What's wrong with you? - You miss me, buddy? - Huh? - Yeah, I really missed you.
Oh! And what's happenin' in here? You gonna put a ring on this girl or what? - I don't know.
She's [GRUNTS.]
- Come on! Mom! I'm good.
I'm good.
Well, Mom couldn't be happier.
"Both my babies under one roof.
" All right.
Gummy? You haven't been back in five years.
You're already trying to get me suspended? It is roof talk time, little bro.
These things are legal.
Let's just come on, let's spill some tea.
What's the point? Hmm? After this weekend, you're gonna blow back out of here, and I'm not gonna see you for God knows how long.
So we got a lot of catching up to do.
Plus, I'm your sister.
And I can still hurt you.
- Ow, okay, okay.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
- So spill it.
What's up with this Amy girl? Is she your person or what? My person? You have her tethered down there to Mom in the kitchen.
I'd say things are looking pretty serious.
How do you know when things get really serious? Joe, when you have to ask someone how you know if things are getting really serious [SENTIMENTAL MUSIC.]
What are you doing? You realize this room is just soundproof.
Everyone can see you hiding in here.
I'm steeling myself for the big show.
- Tonight? - No, right now.
It's just it's family.
This where the cool kids hang out? Uncle Frank, what is happening up here? I've got a product that could bring all this back, you know? Nah.
The only thing bringing that back is a time machine.
What's the holdup, Joey? - No holdup.
- No holdup.
- We're ready.
- We're ready.
- I'll block for ya.
- Okay.
Hey, there he is.
Oh! Look at you.
Amy, thank you so much for having us.
I-It was Joe, really.
- So happy you're all here.
- Ugh, yes.
And let's get this turkey on the table! - Look at this! - Yeah.
My two babies under one roof.
I know what I'm thankful for this year.
Aw, there's my baby girl! Oh, there's my infantilizing mother! Ahh! Both my kids under one roof? Yeah, I am allowed to enjoy that.
- Yes, you are, Mom.
- Oh, Mom! I know what I'm thankful for this year.
How was your flight? Well, a drunk dude nearly punched out the flight attendant next to me.
But other than that, it was peachy.
- Wow.
- Hey.
Did your scissors make it through security? 'Cause look.
- Always.
- I could use a trim, right? Well, let's see here.
Mom - Mm-hmm.
- You know what? Whoever you're using is doing a great job.
You, uh, you look really pretty.
- You do! And where is my freakin' nephew? He's with Kinsley, this new aide who's helping him get dressed before dinner.
- He has a new aide? - Mm-hmm.
- Oh.
- And can we please save the obscenely large chocolate treats until after dinner like normal people? Well, why didn't you tell me? I can help.
Oh, well, you live 3,000 miles away.
And you feed my kid enough chocolate to put him into a diabetic coma.
- Well - And also, you've never helped, so - Uh - [LAUGHS.]
Uh, shoot, I just missed Jenny's call.
- One second.
- Mm-hmm.
Still beatin' up on the interns, huh? Well, the more things change.
Everyone, this is Barrett Blankenship, former student of mine.
Every time he's in town, I rope him into my current pro-bono.
Well, I can't think of a better way to spend the holiday.
- Hey, Jenny.
- Hey.
- I can't believe you're here.
- Yeah.
Me too.
Keep forgetting how much I miss Atlanta until I get here.
It's home.
And now you're here.
So that's a bonus.
It is so nice to see a friendly face.
Nobody smiles here.
Is that like a law school thing or Kinda.
It is so cool that you're a part of this team.
Well, thanks to you, I assume.
That wasn't me.
Hey, Holland's case, Holland's team.
That's all you, Banks.
- Frank.
- Oh, good.
Joe didn't tell me you were gonna be here.
Yeah, well, here I am.
- Happy Thanksgiving.
- Happy Thanksgiving.
I know where these live.
Right here.
Whoa! So hey, what, are you really living here now? What? I can ask a question.
- Stop.
- What? - Joe, is she living here? - That's enough.
It's just temporary, all right? Hey, just ignore him.
Hey, Amy, I hear that you're looking for some work.
It may not be a dream job, but what do you think about waiting tables? Look, if it's good enough for AOC.
Thank you.
Oh, sorry.
- Ooh! - Someone's awake.
- You okay? - Yeah.
- Hey, little bean.
- Aw! You want to meet your Uncle Joe? - Oh, Mal.
- Oh, shoot! - Mal, come on! - Sorry.
- Well, you blew it! - It is hey, he knows.
Well, we wanted to surprise you.
Um, Mal and I talked about this.
It's it's it's important to us to have a godfather that we can really count on to be around for this little bean.
You know, someone heroic and kind and good.
Somebody who's been my best friend since, I don't know, forever.
I can't believe you just called me your hero.
- Ah! - I I okay.
- That means so much to me.
- Heroic.
Not necessarily my hero.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm serious.
What do you say? Will you be our godfather, Uncle Joe? It would be an honor.
Come here.
You feel that? - [LAUGHS.]
- Whoa! That's a kicker.
Yeah, right? Amy, come here.
You got to feel this.
Oh, come on.
Get in here.
It's a party.
- Oh, my God.
- Come on.
Come on.
Come on.
Okay, before I cry, I just want you all to know how much I love you.
You know, your dad and I always told each other never to leave anything unsaid, so.
Okay, I'm gonna shut up now.
I can't think of a better time to start Gratitude-Go-Around.
- No! - Come on.
Come on.
- Let's do it.
- Ugh! - Oh, no.
- Oh, Lord.
It'll never die! So what's Gratitude-Go-Around? Gratitude-Go-Around is a tradition my mom makes us do every year.
- I don't make you do it.
- Yes, you do.
- Every year.
- Do I? Well, we pass around this turkey.
And when it's your turn, you say what you're grateful for.
All right.
You don't have to do it if you don't want to.
- Are you kidding? I love this.
- Yeah? I'm stealing it for my family.
Not literally.
I am forever grateful that we got rid of that awful old turkey centerpiece and you got this new one.
It is beautiful, Christopher.
It certainly is.
Although I'm not sure why you would need to bring up the old one.
- Water under the bridge, Mom.
- And I am grateful that Douglas let me carve the turkey this year, so Well, I'm not.
No, no.
I am very, very happy to be here with all of you.
Even if it is without our Jenny.
Excuse me.
You guys don't have the turkey.
I have the turkey.
- Excuse me.
- Okay.
I am thankful to you and Douglas for getting Frank the help he needs.
Hopefully, he'll be with us at the table next year.
- Amen.
- Yeah.
Um Well, it's you, bud.
I'm grateful to be your dad.
Today, tomorrow, and every day.
You say that every year.
It's true.
I'm grateful for you too, Dad.
And for Mom.
All right, turkey me.
Oh! This is the turkey.
- Yay! - Yes! Yes! I am grateful for this new job taking care of this wonderful boy.
- Trial period.
Trial period.
- Trial period.
- Got it.
- Okay.
Well, uh we are also grateful for Christopher.
Especially this year.
Why me? Well, you inspired a very big decision.
You know, we debated kidnapping you forever.
But we still really want to be friends with your parents.
I figure they're good people.
Uh, so you inspired us to get one of our own.
- We're gonna adopt.
- What? - Yes! - Oh, my gosh! - That's great.
- Yeah.
- Congratulations.
- Wow.
It's a long, long process we have ahead.
- Yeah.
- And to you, sir.
I will be grateful when we are finally able to get rid of this stupid ceramic turkey.
I thought you worked through all that in therapy.
I am very healed.
But it's not like you can't afford a new one, Joe.
I mean, there's not, like, some - It wouldn't be this turkey.
- Tiffany turkey we could buy, or I mean, look at all this.
Let's not go there.
Okay, Joe.
You're up.
Although, I think we all know who you're grateful for.
Okay, what's going on with you two? - Nothing.
- Mom.
What's going on? - Campaign emergency? - It's Regina Diaz.
Um, Regina decided to throw her hat into the ring.
It was an honor to be appointed to my late husband's congressional seat.
After much careful thought and consideration, I've decided to honor his legacy and stay in the race for next term's election.
I'm looking forward to facing Miss Kindelán in the primary.
I know Bobby would be very proud of the decision.
Thank you.
I thought she was just gonna serve out her husband's term.
I guess she changed her mind.
She's gonna be my opponent in the primary.
Um, I'm I'm grateful for Gwen and Joe for letting me stay here after my apartment got broken into.
That's nice when you got Joe looking out for you.
He's he's very loyal.
- Okay.
Take it easy.
- You know what? I got a toast.
No one wants to hear your toast, Frank.
No, I do.
I'm grateful for this dinner and for this beautiful family being here.
But you're not too grateful for that promotion I got for you because you threw that one back in my face too I heard.
I didn't ask you for that.
He can make his own decisions, Frank.
Yeah? Here's what I'm grateful for.
I'm grateful for these two.
Because of their decision to become heroic truth seekers, I've been suspended indefinitely.
So thank you.
And congratulations on saving the world.
I'm sorry that you were suspended.
But I did what was right.
You and Lady Liberty.
Hey, leave her out of this, okay? All right, that's enough, Frank.
Okay? Just - That's enough.
- And just so you know, I did exactly what my pops would have done.
You have no idea what your dad would have done.
Sit down.
Do not speak to him that way.
Are you laughing? Is this funny to you? [LAUGHS.]
A little bit.
Just you always thinking Dad only ever did the right thing 'cause, you know, in our house, he was "Saint Christopher.
" Celeste, stop it.
I will not have it.
Not not on this holiday.
- No, not on this holiday.
- No.
Or any holidays, non-holidays.
- Stop it! - No one in our family - wants to acknowledge the fact - Acknowledge what? That you resent Dad for some reason? No, we get it.
No, that you all deify him.
Case in point, exhibit A, it has been 21 years, 21 years, and we are still using that damn ceramic turkey as a centerpiece.
Well, this damn centerpiece means something to me! - [LAUGHS.]
- It's a family tradition! And it doesn't matter that you broke the turkey! I broke it? Oh, my God, Mom.
How delusional can you be? You don't remember Dad throwing it at my head? - He never did that.
- Oh.
Yes, he was mad.
He was very protective of you, and he always wanted the best for you.
She's right, Celeste.
Dad worked his ass off to save that money for you to go to college.
And you threw it in his face.
You wanted to run off with Derek, that wannabe tattoo artist? I broke up with him.
It was never about Derek.
It was the fact that I didn't want to go to college.
And I know that you think he was the perfect brother, Uncle Frank, and the perfect husband, and the p-perfect dad.
But he wasn't that for me.
- That is enough.
- For someone who believes in never letting anything go unsaid, I just think it's ironic, Mom, that no one in our family ever talks.
We never talk about how angry Dad used to get.
You remember.
And we never talk about anything.
We never talk about Joe being a cop and the fact that he's in his 30s and he's living at home - with his mommy - Okay.
In this little house like he always did.
I think dinner's over.
See, we never sit down and just talk about it.
This one came out wrong.
Hey, uh, before we go inside.
There's there's something I've been meaning to tell you because, you know, I never got the gratitude turkey.
Actually it's more of a gratitude/confession combo.
But whatever.
Anyway I am thankful that we live in a time when I can live a healthy life as an HIV-positive man.
But I'm fine.
I am completely undetectable.
I've been waiting to find the right time to tell you.
And I guess this is it.
But but I wanted to make sure you knew before we Okay, okay, okay.
Just look, relax, relax.
You don't have to explain anything to me.
You don't have to explain yourself to me.
And I'm thankful that you're honest.
But also, I'm on PrEP.
- Come on.
- Yeah.
- We're gonna be late.
- Yeah.
It's a nice venue.
Be right back.
Look, Joe, I just I want to just Hey, Amy.
I can't do that right now.
- You ready? - Yeah.
Come on, guys.
Thank you all for being here tonight and for celebrating Thanksgiving with us.
- You all right? - Yeah.
All right, let's go.
Means a lot that you would spend part of your holiday with me.
I am so grateful for your support and to be your candidate.
But I know that you're really not here to see me.
Hey, Joe.
Play "Away You Go.
" Okay.
There you go.
Our first request.
That's gonna cost you another grand.
You know, this was the first song that Joe ever wrote.
And it was just the two of us trying to figure out how to afford bus fare to DC so that I can make it to my job interview.
I remember when we first heard it on the radio.
We couldn't believe it.
That's when I realized that I was falling in love with him.
That's what his songs made me feel.
Then you hear something a million times and you forget that feeling.
So tonight, I am so grateful that I get to hear it for what will feel like the first time in a long time.
Everyone, my husband, Joe Kimbreau.
Kill it.

Let's take a walk, kid.
- Here.
Take a look at this.
- Mm-hmm.
- That was in the deposition? - Mm-hmm.
- Tell me I'm right.
- You're right.
- Always.
- Can't use that.
Professor Holland, I've been rereading the April 25th deposition.
Judge Hamler's remarks could help us I think.
Excessive sentencing.
I mean, he gave some embezzlers less time.
This could be grounds for the appeal.
Bias? - Good.
- Good.
Actually, Jenny, if you wouldn't mind, I need you to run down to the law library and grab "Crim Pro" by Lubiak and Bonotto.
Yeah? - Okay.
- And no rush.
If you happen to have time to call home on the way, - you knock yourself out.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
- How long are you here? Actually, Professor Holland asked me to co-chair the case.
So I'll be staying in Atlanta till it's done.
Oh, well, great.
- Thanks for covering me.
- Absolutely.
Oh, he's out.
Nothing like being tucked in the bed by Mom, - even if it is over the phone.
- Hmm.
What are you still doing here? You're way off the clock.
And I don't think it's part of job description to be folding clothes.
Ah, well, you know, they were here.
Now Chris said you made these for him.
Is that true? Yeah.
I, um, made them last year after his spinal fusion surgery.
It's easier to change his pants while he's in the chair.
And you're a freakin' innovative genius.
Zipper pants.
Love it.
Forget the trial period.
You're hired.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Good night, Kinsley! Good night, Chris! - Go to sleep.
- I love her! - [LAUGHS.]
Good night.
- Good night.
Sorry again about my family.
I just I had to get out of there.
Don't be.
I do remember that Thanksgiving, my dad blowing up at Celeste.
You know, maybe she's right.
Maybe we don't talk about how things really are.
Hello? Okay, where are you? Stay calm.
I'm Did you call 911? All right, we'll be right there.
- What happened? That was one of the residents from my new beat.
There's been a fire.
You're coming along for the ride.
Say it's not enough to be in love You need to prove it somehow It's not dollar signs or pickup lines Or anything that you could kiss away now That hollow feeling in your chest Kokoro thinks I should push the tour.
Take some time off.
Maybe she's right.
I'm I'm so sorry, Joe.
I always knew that you and Bobby had a connection.
But I never imagined.
Are we are we broken? I don't know, Amy.
Maybe we are.
If it's easy, if it's fun Something's missing Love is pain [PEOPLE SCREAMING.]
Fire truck should be here in three minutes.
They want me to wait for backup.
NYPD, back up.
I need everyone to move back, please.
Ma'am, can you please get back from the building, please.
Sir, step away from the building, please.
You need to back away from the building, please.
Hey, breathe.
Come here.
Officer, thank you for coming.
My son Jordan, I can't find him.
He was down the hall with a friend on the second floor.
- Second floor? - Second floor.
No, Joe! I don't want to leave anything left unsaid.
I love you.
Please don't go.
Hello, Amy.
It's Dr.
We're gonna have to put off those scans we scheduled for your ribs.
I have the results of your bloodwork.
