- Oh, so it's fine for me to be an adult When it comes to saving this family from losing this house By falsely accusing a relative of molesting me.
But when I want to know Where we're gonna be living for the next year, Then I'm just supposed to be a kid And keep my mouth shut, right? - Yeah.
- Okay, great.
- It's steve.
Leave some words.
seriously? I leave you a message saying that I want to work it out, And you don't even call me back? Okay, fine.

You obviously don't feel the same way.
But at least have the decency to tell me.
Okay? Two years? I think I deserve that.
Have a good life.
Fucking asshole! - You're not morgan fairchild.
- Excuse me? Heaven.
I always imagined absinthe and morgan fairchild.
- I'm dr.
Markman, and you're not dead.
But you will be soon if you don't stop drinking.
- You got anything for the pain? Vicodin, percocet, whatever's handy.
- You have liver damage, esophageal varices, Immune system dysfunction, likely renal failure.
Frankly, it would be faster to tell you what you don't have.
- Maybe the online medical school You graduated from didn't cover this Before they emailed you your diploma.
I'm going to try to make this simple.
The technical term is "withdrawal.
" I like the word "parched.
" So if there's not a keg handy, A bottle of your finest pharmaceuticals Should have me ship-shape in no time.
- You need to stop drinking.
- Spare me the sermon.
- Juan will take you to processing.
- Processing? - You're being released.
What? - If we keep you here, we'd have to treat you.
Stop drinking before it kills you.
Aah! Fuck.
Hit me, kate.
- Thought I was the only one here into that.
- No time for flirting, got some catching up to do.
Line 'em up.
- Morning.
- I want to enlist.
Glad to hear it.
Are you interested in active duty or army reserve? - Active duty.
- All right.
I'd be happy to help you find a specialty, Let you know when they're classing up.
- I don't want to wait for a specialty.
I'm ready to leave now.
- Any reason why you're seeking out the army? Trouble at home? Running away from jail or a pregnant girlfriend? Here's my transcript.
I already passed the vocational aptitude battery And physical exams.
When's the next bus to basic combat training? Tomorrow morning.
- What else do I need? - Photo I.
I'll be here.
- Hey, take some time to think on it.
I'm ready now.
- So does he know we're having a party for him? - Nope.
It's a surprise.
- Men don't give a shit about this stuff.
Well, it's a big deal.
First gallagher kid getting a diploma.
Hey, what about you? - G.
Doesn't really count.
- Diplomas are overrated.
I didn't get a diploma, and look at me.
hey, don't give me no shit, kev! I do not sound like that.
- Oh! Give me those! You better watch yourself.
ow! - How would you like it if I did that to you? don't bite! No! So still haven't heard from what's his name? - Do you want to give me a hand with the banner? - Oh, I guess that's my cue to get more coffee.
- He didn't even have the balls to dump me in person.
- He told you who he was from the beginning.
Car thief.
Lied about his name for months.
- Your point? - Sorry.
- No.
I'm sorry.
I don't mean to be a bitch about it.
- He's a wuss, forget about him.
He's forgotten.
Just pissed I wasted two years of my life.
- You guys aren't being fair.
- What? - Did you or did you not tell jimmy the last time you saw him Not to come home? - So? - Well, now you're mad at him for doing exactly what you said? She didn't mean it.
- Yeah, I did.
- Aah! - Yeah, but just for that night, not forever.
I didn't think he'd take it for real.
Why not? - Because that's what women do in the heat of the moment.
We say shit we don't mean.
- I got it.
But how the fuck is he supposed to know that? Just go get the car, kev.
We're gonna be late for the baby doctor.
- Okay, fine, but how do I know you really mean go get the car? You could be saying, "go get the car," In the heat of the moment.
- Crazy time of year, end of semester.
I have to let a litany of underachievers know They'd best be advised to cut their losses And learn a trade, something that utilizes their backs Instead of their brains.
It's moments like this that make the job worth it.
Crap pay, miserable working conditions, But the chance to change one special kid's life.
Guess this is where I'm supposed to, uh, thank you For never giving up on me.
I'll see ya, dick.
Teachers are taking bets what's next for you, gallagher.
College, ten to one.
Prison, four to one.
- Hey, kate, can I get a shot? - And enable your truancy? This place is pathetic enough already.
I'm not skipping school.
Surprisingly, they let me graduate.
- Good for you.
This one's on the house.
- I know what you're thinking.
You can tap that.
And you'd be right.
But chew on this.
Sure, she's got some frisky tricks up her sleeve, But there's more tread on those tires than it's worth.
Trust me, been there.
Planted my flag and I got the piss pins and needles To prove it.
- I thought you were in jail, frank.
- Got out on a technicality.
- Why did you take the rap for carl? - Because that's what family does.
Have I taught you nothing? - Congratulations.
- Thank you.
- Congra-- what for? Your kid got his diploma.
My boy! Why didn't you say something? We need to celebrate.
Attention! Denizens of this dump! - Frank, you okay? - Better than ever! Because my progeny has joined the ranks of the graduated! - Which makes official something we've long known, Which is that the gallaghers are head and shoulders above All of you shitbirds! - Seriously, frank, you look like crap.
Even for you.
- You're one to talk, tommy.
You're one bucket of kfc extra crispy away From giving precious a run for her money.
oh! - You know I got a fucking thyroid condition oh.
- And I could still kick your ass.
- Well, why don't you put your money Where your halitosis-ridden mouth is.
- Hey, I'm not mopping up the blood and the teeth again.
Figure out another way to settle your pissing contest.
- Fine, pissing contest! - Fine! Let's go! - Hey, I didn't mean it literally! Push-ups! you won't make double digits.
What does it matter? You can't count that high anyway.
- Oh, I want in on this! - Me too! - Let's do it! Push these tables aside.
- Hold on.
- Make a hole.
- No girlie, on-your-knees push-ups.
- Only one of us spends time on their knees, frank, And it ain't me.
okay, 10 bucks in.
My kid will hold.
- 20! Thank you.
Thank you, thank you.
All right, no food stamps.
But lottery scratchers are accepted.
All right, we're ready.
Get set! And go! One, two, Three, four Five, six, seven eight, nine! Tommy! - Know what kind of upper body strength It takes to handle a rig, gallagher? I can do this all day.
- Not just a test of strength but stamina.
The kind one gets from years of running from people, Not sitting on your ass in a truck for 18 hours a day.
- Uh-oh.
- Um, there you go, man.
Drink responsibly.
- Hey, kate, can I get another shot? Hey, wanna go celebrate? - Uh - A steak.
- No.
- Aw, come on! You got something better to do? - Make it a scotch and a lobster, You got yourself a deal.
