Ray Donovan s05e05 Episode Script

Shabbos Goy

1 [Ray] Previously on Ray Donovan [Ray] How long? [Friedman] Well, as I said, it's not precise.
You gotta do something.
You gotta save her.
I think my dad might have made you sick before your surgery.
Why would your dad wanna get me sick? So you wouldn't get the surgery and my mom could take your place in the trial.
[Landry] Sam isn't interested in litigating this thing.
She just wants her stuff back.
That's all of it.
Winslow's not fit, Ray.
What she does, the way she does things.
What happened here? We were just training for a movie and fuck! This ain't a problem.
What do you mean, this ain't a fucking problem? I got a business deal today.
It's a real estate transaction.
Wallet, cell phone, and your fucking bag.
Keep going.
You're fucking dead, you hear me? [Frank] We've got a little problem with Avi Rudin.
I'm not killing Avi, Frank.
Now if I go down, this is the first damn thing to come up, you understand that? Now your boy's gonna get called in.
Tomorrow, Avi's gonna be at the Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen's Club.
Eleven o'clock, a.
m.
Get it done.
[Landry] She's pretty special, isn't she? [Ray] What? I said she's pretty special, isn't she? Natalie? [gentle dramatic music] [Mickey] Well, you puked on your first job.
So what? So what? Anyway, move on.
Pretty gruesome stuff.
Nothing to be ashamed of.
You you, um You-you-you took the body parts and you put 'em in the concrete? You see what you're doing? Over and over and over? The mark of a great anything Golf professional, bank robber Is the ability to forget the past.
Listen, I just need to know, Mick We didn't we didn't We didn't kill the guy.
Chopped him up a little.
Maybe you're not cut out for this kind of work.
Is that what you want me to say? I just asked you a simple question, Mickey, okay? I mean, Christ, why do you always gotta complicate things? Hey whoa, whoa I'll see you later, Bunch.
Wait.
[sighs] Good night, son.
Daryll.
[uplifting music] [Natalie] I'm not afraid of dying.
I'm not afraid of the unknown.
You are the one with the fear.
The fear that holds you in a prison of your own making.
I am free.
Free in a way you'll never be.
[Bunchy sighs] [Bunchy sobs] - Bunchy? - [Bunchy sobs] [Mickey] Christ, kid.
What is it? [sobs] I lost my money, Pop.
Your wallet? My settlement money.
All of it.
How? It's in a bank.
It was in a bag.
[sobs] I had a deal with Harriet.
I was trying to invest for Maria's future For her future, be fuckin' smart, you know? I don't understand.
I just wanted a fucking sandwich.
And they robbed me, Pop.
They took it all.
Oh, Lord.
Oh, Lord.
- I'm a fucking idiot, Pop.
- No.
I had it in cash, I kept it in cash.
I wanted it near me in the house.
I wanted it in cash, and I put it in the fucking bag, and they robbed me.
[sobs] So how you doing? [sighs] All right.
You wanna tell me what's been going on? Sold my house.
Where you moving? I got an apartment in West Hollywood.
All right.
Moving's always fun.
[chuckles] [sighs] Listen, I'd like to ask you about this.
Yeah? You circled "no" on all the answers.
That's right.
You know, some people just don't want to have a written document reflecting their experiences.
You think I'm lying? Well, I would prefer to ask you the questions myself.
What do you mean? I mean, I'd like to keep it between the two of us.
No record.
You're the boss.
Okay.
So when you were a child, did a parent or adult ever swear at you, yell at you, or make you feel like you would be physically hurt in any way? Sure.
We all got yelled at.
Did a parent or adult ever push, grab, hit, or throw anything at you, hurt you in any way? You got out of line, you got a beating.
What's the matter, you haven't been spanked? Did a parent or somebody at least five years older than you ever touch you in a sexual way or force you to touch them? I already talked to someone about that.
So that's a yes? Were your mother and father ever divorced or separated? [sighs] My parents were Irish Catholic.
Did you live with somebody that had a drinking problem? Like I said, Irish Catholic.
So that's a yes.
[chuckles] Did your father ever abuse your mother or hit her? - [sighs] - Yes or no? Was a household member ever mentally ill? Did a household member ever attempt suicide? Look, I don't see what the fuck any of this has to do with the fact I got in a fight with my brothers.
Why don't you tell me why you got in a fight with your brothers.
I did.
It's a family thing.
Like the way your father used to knock you around, right? He hurt you, so now you can do whatever you want without consequences.
- No, I didn't say that.
- Men with this type of history tend to hurt themselves and others with great regularity.
They hurt their children.
They get addicted to drugs.
They get sick.
Lung disease, hepatitis.
Depression, suicide.
Yeah, well, I don't have any of those.
Because when they're children, their brains are overloaded with fear and stress hormones.
So they're constantly in fight or flight mode.
Don't you have another cartoon I could watch or something? - You allergic to anything? - What? - Do you have any allergies? - No.
What's that? Zoloft for depression.
Neurontin for anxiety at night.
Let's start with that and see if it helps.
[sighs] [smooth jazz music] Tell me what you want, Tom.
[Tom] No, in person.
All I need's a price.
Let's make this easy, all right? [Tom] San Pedro Pier, eleven o'clock.
Mr.
Donovan.
[clears throat] Have you used this medication before? No.
[woman] One capsule a day with food.
How long's it take to kick in? [woman] Two to four weeks.
Four weeks.
Thanks.
[Terry] Mick told me you sold the house.
You tell the kids? Not yet.
You should tell the kids.
All right.
I'm taking Damon to New York to train.
Hector's there, his next fight is there.
He's gonna put Damon on the undercard.
And I might stay.
You're moving? Try something new.
Make a new start.
[gentle music] Tell the kids.
What? About the house.
[children laughing] [man] All right, baby girl, see you later.
Excuse me.
Hola, mi amor.
How are you today? Ooh.
Oh, mija.
Did you sleep well last night? Si? What's Daddy say? I may be a little late tonight.
- We're here until six, Bunchy.
- Okay.
Okay? Have a nice day.
Hasta luego.
[children shouting indistinctly] [sighs] [grunting] [cell phone beeps] [phone line rings] - [Bridget] Yeah? - It's your dad.
I know, it says when you call.
I sold the house.
Oh.
[Ray] Yeah.
A family bought it, so I'm gonna get a Get a place that works for us.
[Ray] Smaller.
Put your stuff in storage.
Just throw my shit away.
- Bridge - I gotta go.
- I'm gonna be late for class.
- [beep] [birds caw] Turning on your client never ends well, Tom.
Your brother knew that.
My brother died in debt, Ray.
Living in a rental house.
What the fuck is this? Exactly what it says.
Two million dollars and her husband's Oscar.
She'll understand.
I don't think she's gonna go for it.
There's a board meeting in two weeks.
Plenty of sharks in the water.
[sighs] She's gonna wanna see exactly what you got.
She knows what I got.
[Ray] All right.
[somber music] I love you, darling.
[sighs] You know the hardest part was carrying your coffin.
What we did before, everything else, I don't regret that, because I know we did the right thing.
But carrying your coffin that broke my fucking heart.
[sobs] [telephones ringing] He wants $2 million and your husband's Oscar.
I hope you're joking.
That's what he said.
I'll pay him the money, but no Oscar.
That could be a problem.
Sam, give him the money, give him the statue.
You got plenty of both.
I'm not giving that blackmailing son of a bitch my husband's Oscar.
What's your thinking, Ray? It's not my Oscar.
Tell Tom I'll give him $3 million, no Oscar, and a warning to not fucking trifle with me again.
Understood? Thank you both for coming so promptly.
[sighs] [telephones ringing] Roger's Academy Award, unbelievable.
The things people in this town demand.
I imagine you've stopped being surprised by anything.
I'll talk to Tom, see what I can do.
Listen, there's something else I need you to do for me.
Natalie James walked off the set two days ago, creative differences with the director.
So? Fire the director.
I did, and I reached out to Natalie to find out what was wrong, but she's disappeared.
And I know she's been having troubles with her husband.
We reached out to him, too.
He says he hasn't seen her.
I need you to find her.
This coming from you or Winslow? You know, in the scope of Sam's world, Tom is a nuisance.
Natalie James walking off the set of a $3 billion franchise, that's a fucking problem.

His wife came home early from some whatever fucking, I don't know, Indonesian house-painting volunteer retreat she was on, and I had to run out of his garage like a dog into the street.

You wanna drive a car? Get the Shabbos goy.
You want to turn on the light? Get the fucking Shabbos goy.
Okay, enough of the Jew shit.
