Shameless US s09e09 Episode Script


1 You missed another episode of Shameless, and now we got to take valuable time out of our show to tell you what the hell you missed 'cause you were too damn lazy to get up off your fat asses and watch the damn TV.
Why wouldn't you just tell me that you're married? We stayed together for the kid.
Holy shit, you're a fucking asshole.
I'd like you to meet our son, Santiago.
He crossed the border with his father and sister.
They were looking for asylum, but they got separated.
We can't keep this kid.
Yes, we can.
He has an amazing arm.
Kid brought the heat.
All I ever wanted was to be a mother.
Frank, Would you fertilize my eggs? I would be honored to introduce my little Frankies - to your little Ingrids.
- [laughs.]
You think our chances are good? [Dr.
I'm extremely optimistic.
Thank you, Dr.
Don't thank me.
Thank Frank.
- Mm.
- [smooches.]
I took care of the bills, by the way.
It cost 1,700 bucks.
The squirrel fund is back.
Everyone needs to step up.
I've been giving Fiona money for the bills.
She just hasn't been paying them.
Hey, Gallaghers.
- She do this a lot? - Yeah, lately.
Rock Music Think of all the luck you got Know that it's not for naught You were beaming once before But it's not like that anymore What is this downside That you speak of? What is this feeling You're so sure of? Round up the friends you got Know that they're not for naught You were willing once before But it's not like that anymore What is this downside That you speak of? What is this feeling You're so sure of? [cell phone chiming.]
bluesy rock music [sighs.]
- We need our money back.
- What the fuck? What money? We've been giving you money for utilities that have not been getting paid.
We need that money back.
Jesus! The bills are under my name now.
That water you're using? We're paying for that.
- [scoffs.]
- So, until you repay us what we've been paying you for the last three months, plus your share of rent for the last three months, plus what it cost for me to get shit turned back on, I don't really feel like sharing my water with you.
Yeah, I'll tell you what You take everything that I owe you from the last three months and subtract it from everything that you owe me for the last 18 years.
And when I've used all of the water that I am entitled to some time in, I don't know, 2048, then we can talk about who's even.
[water running.]
What are you wearing? Oh, Tami's mom died of cancer, so her family does a five-K thing every year.
You look sort of ridiculous.
[pipes groan.]
Everybody looks ridiculous in running shorts.
Debbie! Turn my water on! [Lip.]
Hey, did you turn the water off on her? - Yep.
- Deb, she carried us for years You can give her a break.
Turn the water back on! Once you pay us what you owe us.
I'm gonna get it to you.
I just lost track You owe Carl, Lip, and I $832 [both shouting at once.]
- [knocking at door.]
- Stop.
Guys! - [both shouting at once.]
- [Lip.]
The door! Debbie! If you had the month I had, you would have lost track, too.
Ooh, my Irish boyfriend left me.
Stop it! Go take a flying fuck on a rolling doughnut! - What? - Go take a rolling fuck - on a flying doughnut! - Hello? I come in peace.
Oh, fuck, no.
- [drawer rattles.]
- I just want my tools back.
What tools? My carpenter tools.
They're missing.
Well, why would I know about that? Come on, Fiona.
What, you think I just wandered on to your site and picked them up out of your truck or something? Maybe.
Or maybe I came into your house in the middle of the night and I watched you sleep for an hour and then I just took them on my way out.
[scoffs softly.]
Do you have them or not? No.
You egotistical fuck! I haven't thought about you in weeks! [Debbie.]
We thought about you, though.
Rock music - Guess I'll be going, then.
- Yeah.
Damn straight you'll be going, 'cause next time, I won't stop them from beating the shit out of you! If my tools happen to turn up, let me know.
That's how I make my living.
Oh, if they "happen to" Fuck you! [car door closes, engine turning over.]
[motor rumbling, tires squeal.]
Breakfast is on me at Patsy's after I shower.
No money, no shower.
Oh, Christ.
Where are you going? To shower at Veronica's.
[rocks clattering.]
What are you doing here? I've been waiting in the tent all night.
But you should have been working on your hardship essay - for West Point.
- I've had to jerk off twice.
I can't write about that to West Point.
My dad found out that I've been skipping softball camp to hang out with you.
He'll kill you if he finds you here.
He only has one working limb.
That doesn't scare me.
Intense music It only takes one limb to pull a trigger, son.
Get inside.
Ever try to stop a moving train Okay, pee now, 'cause you're not gonna get another chance for, uh, about five kilometers.
Hey, Brad, let's try to finish ahead of Grandpa this year, huh? [scoffs.]
Your family makes me want to drink again.
He's just busting your balls.
Change your shirt already.
We can just jog this thing, right? Yeah.
Fucking extra large? Do I look like an extra large, Gigi, you vindictive bitch? She seem a bit more on edge than usual? This five-K brings up a lot of memories of our mom's death.
Tough day for all of us.
So what's the deal with you and my sister? [Lip.]
"Deal"? Like, are you fucking other people? I don't think we have a deal.
Hey, back off, Cory.
He doesn't want the syph.
All clean, Tami.
It's a miracle drug.
- [man.]
Oh! - [Lip.]
- [Tami.]
Jesus Christ, Cory! - [man.]
Who doesn't wear a fucking bra when they run? [Cami.]
What is your problem? Hey, can you get this into the register? Well, is it counted? Sure.
You smell like a barroom floor.
It's mouthwash.
I just gargled.
Manager's got to count it.
I'm not gonna be on the hook if it's short.
You're the assistant manager.
You count it.
- Fiona, I - Get off my ass! Rock music Sorry, sorry.
It's been a [scoffs.]
It's been a morning.
Just count it, get in the register.
I got to get this cast off.
She okay? She's going through some stuff.
[man howling.]
[family howling.]
[man howling.]
Boone! [family howling.]
Boone! [indistinct chatter.]
Boone! [family howls and applauds.]
Oh, you're so fucked.
- [Boone.]
Hey, man.
- Who the fuck's this guy? - [Brad.]
That's Boone.
- Boone, I think.
Thanks, fucknuts.
Who's Boone? Well, right now he's the guy kissing your chick.
Must be an amazing experience, giving birth feeling life violently ripping its way out of you.
Doesn't that sound exciting? Well, I've never thought of it so graphically, but, yeah.
Did you see all your other children being born? Uh uh, not a one.
I came close on a few, but, you know, scheduling conflicts.
[knock at door, door opens.]
- How do you feel, Ingrid? - [Frank.]
- Oh, super pregnant, Dr.
- [chuckles.]
I put together a vision board All these images of healthy babies with loving parents and puppies and joy.
And then I stared at it all night.
I am telling you, I feel all that in my uterus.
- [Frank chuckles.]
- I'm pregnant.
Let's see what we've got.
- Congratulations, guys.
- [Frank.]
Oh, boy.
- You're gonna be parents.
- [both laughing.]
- I knew it! I knew it! - You knew it! - [Ingrid.]
Oh, oh! - You knew, didn't you? - You knew.
- Oh, I did, and I couldn't have done it without you, Frankie.
Well, with my superior genetics, why would you try? [both laugh.]
- Uh, hold on a second.
- [Ingrid.]
Why? What? - What's going on? - Oops.
"Oops"? What-what's "oops"? Well, it looks like six of them have hunkered down in there.
- Six of what babies? - Oh, my.
Uh, embryos.
I don't usually place all the fertilized embryos in at once, but at your advanced age, most women's uterus’s aren't as accommodating.
We're gonna have to terminate a few of them.
- Five? - What? It's a safety issue.
Carrying six embryos to term poses a major health risk to the mother.
W-what kind of health risk? Uh, months of bed rest, possible death.
You know what? Let's just Let's just keep one.
Uh, it's the safest route, I think.
Right, Doc? What, and and kill five of my babies? Now, embryos.
Ingy, we want as m-many little Frankies and Ingys running around as possible That's obvious.
But do you really think we can afford more than one? Not on my income, but you'll get a job.
We'll keep five.
You can safely keep three.
Okay, then four.
I will lose my medical license if I let you keep any more than three.
We'll do three.
We'll schedule the reduction at the front desk on your way out.
- Wow.
- Three.
- [laughs.]
- [door opens.]
- Wow.
- Three babies! - [laughing awkwardly.]
- [door closes.]
Are you saying our biggest client is asking us to sell something that is undrinkable? [Ryan.]
Yeah, we're in advertising.
That's what we do.
Dax? [Dax.]
Globally, three groups testing semi-positively in taste tests Uh, Siberians, the Dalit caste of India, and the American hobo.
[device clicks.]
You mean literal homeless people.
Well, general indigents.
[Dax grunts.]
these were all taken on the South Side.
Homeless people, hookers, transients.
Bachman's not going to turn a profit - selling to those people.
- No, no, no.
But-but if we use them as influencers, we can crack the Millennial market wide open.
They identify as poor or as victims of a society that doesn't care about them.
Thing is, they're not poor.
They just don't have the money they think they're entitled to, and we think we can capitalize on their complete lack of perspective.
They're self-proclaimed hobos.
We're simply offering them the chance to prove it.
"Hobo Loco"? [Dax.]
Bachman Alcohol re-branded as the nectar of the bona fide hobo.
I don't hate it.
We need to build our campaign around the search of a spokesperson.
No advertisements, no media bias, just Millennial word of mouth.
Authenticity is key.
The "hoboiest" of all hobos the Hobo Loco Man.
Rock music "Hobo Loco Man.
" [whistles.]
Hey, where'd you get this kid? Can I have him? Back off.
He's our kid.
Hey, George.
What we got? Uh, the usual.
Plus Bachman's sending over complimentary cases of this stuff for bars to test.
"Hobo Loco"? It's deadly.
Sampled some in the truck.
Had to take a water shit in the alley, it tore through me so fast.
They're running a contest to see if anybody can create cocktails with it - to mask the taste.
- [Kev.]
Winning bar gets social-media exposure during the Hobo Loco Man contest.
Flyers for it are in the box.
- See yous.
- See you.
We're going to Indiana, Kevin.
It's the right thing to do.
Why are you trying to take my kid away from me? Reuniting Santiago with his real family was your idea.
Well, I hadn't seen his knuckle-ball when I said that.
They were gonna go live with his uncle in Indiana before they were detained by the government and split up.
We go to Gary, find the uncle.
How are we gonna find some random Guatemalan guy in Gary, Indiana? I did a web search "where to find illegal immigrants, Gary, Indiana.
" Got a whole list of places.
We don't even know what he looks like! On the back.
"Papa 'Y' Tío Jose.
" Where'd you get this? I may have gone through Santiago's stuff - while he was sleeping.
- Aw, V.
Moms are supposed to go through their son's stuff Get rid of their porn and weed.
Hear that? You're already doing mom shit.
You want to keep him, right? Kev.
All right, fine.
We'll go to Gary.
Oh! Lord, Jesus! [indistinct chatter.]
Didn't think you were gonna make it, son.
I didn't either, sir.
Caught a break with an Air Force transport out of Okinawa, then hopped a commercial from Seattle.
- [Brad.]
Good God.
- [exhales sharply.]
- Wow.
- [woman.]
Mmm, mmm.
Hey, Lip, you know Boone's a war hero, right? Pulled three towelheads out of a burning building in Mosul.
Just one.
Oh, you couldn't grab the other two? Buried bullets in the other two.
They were ISIS, so he shot 'em.
Got a medal for haji-murdering.
Want to choke on his dick right here, Cory? You can't have everybody, you selfish bitch.
[dishes clattering.]
Who are you? Lip.
And you are - Boone! - Boone, right.
Boone's Tami's boyfriend.
A long time ago.
Ah, it wasn't that long ago.
You know you two are gonna get married.
Okay, troops! Let's pay our tab and run for cancer.
[Brad clears throat.]
Hey, man.
You know about this guy? If I say yes, am I in trouble? - Yes.
- Then, no.
Rock music The bar that creates the best new cocktail gets to be mentioned in the Hobo Loco Man competition.
"Hobo Loco Man"? I didn't make the name up, Kermit.
It's some advertising bullshit.
I don't know.
- But it sounds cool.
- [Veronica.]
All right, thanks.
Hazel is on her way, and Debbie said she'll watch Santiago, so Why don't you bring him with? Tell him you're looking for his uncle? We don't want to get his hopes up.
Hey, Santiago? Buddy, you don't have to do that.
- [squeegee squeaks.]
- [Kev.]
No, no, no No n-necesito Shit, I really got to learn some Spanish.
All right.
So here what we got is the Hoborita.
It's a teaspoon of Hobo Loco, shit-ton of lime juice, and some margarita mix.
This is the Napalm Gut Rinse.
Half a shot of Hobo Loco and a cup and a half of cranberry juice.
And here, what I just made a full shot of Hobo Loco and four ounces of Baileys.
What do you call that? Death.
Bottoms up.
- [Tommy.]
- Cheers.
- Motherfucker! - [groans.]
- I can feel it in my eyeballs.
- [door opens.]
- [Ingrid.]
- [Frank.]
Hey, a round of your best stuff for everybody, Kev-o! Ingrid and I are pregnant.
- Oh! - No way! [Frank.]
- Here, try that.
- It's true.
Thank you so much.
And not only that - [Tommy laughs.]
- We are gonna [coughs.]
We are having a, uh That's really good.
Can I get [coughs.]
another one of those? We are having a baby shower, and you're all invited.
- When? - Now! Here.
No gifts.
We'll take money.
And our three unborn children thank you in advance.
Triplets? Sextuplets.
Holy shit, is that, like, seven? - [Ingrid.]
- No, no, no, no, no.
No, you told Dr.
Kwan three.
I know what I said, but I know what I want.
But what I'm saying is that, uh, a verbal contract It is my body, my choice, Frank! - In the state of Ill - I am not gonna kill - my babies.
- Okay.
- We're gonna have all six! - Okay.
Six! Okay.
It's okay.
Everything's okay.
- Yeah? [laughs.]
- Okay.
- It's all good.
- Six! That's great, isn't it? - Ooh.
- [clears throat.]
I can feel them now.
- You okay? - Yeah.
Those are some pretty short shorts you got there.
Yeah, if the wind blows just right, - you can see up the lining.
- Hot.
[inhales sharply.]
So you're getting married.
I haven't decided yet.
Our moms were best friends.
We were dating when my mom got sick, and she made him promise to take care of me on her deathbed.
She was pretty loopy with all the pain meds at the end, but now Boone thinks that means we have to get married.
He's a traditional guy, you know, like, "a promise is a promise" and all that.
All right! Let's run this thing, huh? [Lip.]
You gonna run in those? Yeah, why not? That's what we ran in for Rangers training.
He'll still win the thing.
Boone's won this five-K every time he's run it.
I don't know.
My man Lip's been running a lot.
Oh, you guys should race.
- Winner gets to fuck me.
- [Tami scoffs.]
Loser should have to fuck her.
Well, then loser buys us beers at the Alibi.
- They're alcoholics, Cory.
- Christ, Cory.
Cokes, then.
Unclench your vaginas.
Come on.
It'll be fun.
All right.
I'll go slow.
I'll even wear my duffel.
All right.
Boone, you're with me in the van.
- [Boone whoops.]
- Whoo-hoo! Watch your step.
Hey, this isn't a piss-on-your-tree type of thing, right? 'Cause I'm nobody's tree.
I can beat him.
It's vodka.
[woman over PA.]
Next stop with transfer available for the brown, purple, and blue lines.
Next stop with transfer available for the brown, purple, and blue lines.
Hey, excuse me, sir? Would you mind giving up your seat for this lady? No habla English.
You "hablos" inglés just fine.
She's pregnant and disabled, so get your fucking ass up.
- Lo siento.

Okay, lo siento get the fuck up.

[chuckles awkwardly.]
Thanks, but I'm all right.
Are you fucking kidding me? Okay, fine.
Fuck you.
You could've gotten up, too.
This is depressing.
Can I please play video games? No unnecessary electricity usage between ten and four.
That's not even peak hours.
- [door opens, knocking.]
- Hey, Debs.
- Thank you for watching him.
- No problem.
That'll just be an eight-dollar flat fee - for facilities usage.
- What? - Since when? - I take cash or a personal check with a ten percent processing fee.
Well, how about that minus a two-dollar immigrant labor fee, since he's gonna clean your house whether you want him to or not? Deal.
Hey, listen, Santiago.
I know you can't understand anything I'm saying to you, so I feel comfortable saying this.
We're gonna go look for your real family.
Not that we're not your real family, but we're gonna look for your real real I can't.
I-it's too hard.
- It's too much.
- Come on, come on.
See you.
[door opens, closes.]
Your share of the bills this month $70.
I don't have $70.
Then make $70.
- I'm nine.
- Carl and I ran a day-care center when he was nine.
Figure it out.
driving music Carl.
Your share of the bill this month is $70.
I thought I already gave you all my money to turn the water and electricity back on.
I thought you were making money charging those scooters.
Yeah, that's until the hipsters on the corner unplugged my extension cord, which is weird, 'cause I thought that was the number-one transportation for hipsters.
Maybe you should get a real job and stop hanging out with your girlfriend so much.
Even if I wanted to, I can't see Kelly anymore.
What happened? Apparently I'm bad for her, her dad says.
Ever since we started going out, her 20-mile run time has gone up, upper-body strength has gone to shit.
You know, I don't want to screw up her shot at Annapolis.
That's weirdly unselfish of you.
Yeah, plus, her dad said every gun he owns has a bullet with my name on it.
- [door clatters open.]
- [scoffs.]
- [Kelly pants.]
- Hey, Kelly.
Hey! What are you doing here? Just ran my 20 miles.
Well, jogged 'em, really.
Who the fuck wants to run in this heat? Ah! I don't think we're supposed to see each other.
"Supposed to" isn't a thing I'm doing anymore.
Oh, Fritos.
All I've ever wanted is to have kids.
What if none of these six embryos make it to term? - Mm-hmm.
- Or what if only three of the eggs are good and those are the three I got rid of? - Uh-huh.
- Oh, and if I miscarry, uh, that's it.
That's my chance to have children.
And I'll have no more frozen eggs to try again.
But what if you carry all six to term - and we end up with six kids? - [line trilling.]
Wouldn't that be great? Dr.
Hi, it's Ingrid.
Yeah, I-I-I want to cancel my reduction.
- We're keeping all six.
- [Dr.
The hell you are! I am not losing my medical license - over six white babies - Jesus.
- And their psycho mother.
- [groans.]
I think we're gonna need someplace to hide.
I will find you and vacuum And he was like, No "hablos" inglés.
Sorry, you don't have to "hablos" inglés t-to see that a pregnant woman on crutches - needs a seat.
- [Eliza.]
- You would think.
- [sighs.]
Eliza, call the police.
I'm on a completion deadline, so I don't have time to fuck around, Fiona.
Just tell me how much you want for the tools.
- I don't have them.
- Five hundred.
- A thousand.
- Fuck off.
I'll give you $1,500 if you give them to me right now.
I know you could use the money.

So sorry, you guys.
It's all good.
Enjoy your meals.
- [Fiona sighs.]
- [Eliza.]
It's all good.
Sit down.
[Fiona sighing.]
- [Eliza.]
Sit down! - [indistinct chatter.]
Drink this and calm the fuck down.
Do you know what I did when I found Roger in bed with my sister? I started boxing.
Look, I'm doing a class after our shift today.
Why don't you come with me and find a safer place for this aggression? [hip-hop playing in car.]
[keys rattles, music stops.]
[indistinct chatter in Spanish.]
Any of them look like Uncle Jose? - All of them look like him.
- [men speaking Spanish.]
No, no, no.

lively music [Major Keefe on phone.]
Get your ass home right now, young lady, or I'm taking your truck keys What are you doing? Making this house cost-efficient.
Adding insulation to the attic, welding leaking pipes, adding timers to light switches.
[Major Keefe.]
Where are you? No, I'm not at Carl's.
[Major Keefe.]
Then where are you, and when are you coming home? My whereabouts are confidential.
[Major Keefe.]
Not from your father, they're not.
I'll let you know when the information gets declassified.
- That's it.
That's the last - [stifles laughter.]
God, if I knew pissing off my dad would be this much fun, I would've started years ago.
Um I don't think we should be seeing each other anymore.
- Um, why? - Uh, because you're not hot enough.
I'm not "hot enough"? - Right.
- For you? - Mm - [cell phone vibrates.]
Hello, sir? [Major Keefe.]
We had a deal, Gallagher.
Uh, now's really not a good time.
Uh Sorry, Carl Gallagher's phone is out of service.
- He'll call you back never.
- [phone clatters.]
What the fuck? Why you always got to be throwing my phone like that? - Ow, ow, ow! - What did he offer you? - Nothing.
- Bullshit! - A spot at West Point? - No.
We then why are you breaking up with me? I don't want to mess your future up.
Your run times have been up, your test scores have been down ever since you met me.
I don't want to screw up your shot to Annapolis.
What if I don't want to go to Annapolis? What if I'm sick of working so hard? What if I just want to stay here and eat Fritos with your family and watch TV - and enjoy life for once? - [door opens.]
Getting your ass kicked by a girl again, Carl? [Debbie.]
Why are you walking like that? Just beat a superhero in a five-K.
- [Debbie.]
What? - [groans.]
He was wearing a 60-pound duffel and combat boots, so I'm not sure it was that impressive.
You got our money? Hey.
Yeah, here.
Some cash from today.
- Uh, Fiona, you still owe us - I'll get it.
- Calm down.
- [door opens.]
We're pregnant, and we're hiding from a North Korean fertility specialist, so make room, my practice family.
We are moving in.
I'm sorry, y-you're what, now? We're hiding from a North Korean fertility specialist.
- [Lip.]
No - You're pregnant? - [Frank.]
Correct! - With six kids! - [halfheartedly.]
- Oh, that's hysterical.
W-why is that funny? Oh, uh, how are you gonna support them? Hold on, you're saying I can't support six kids? - No.
- [Lip.]
Absolutely not.
I supported the six of you the first time.
You didn't support one of us the first time.
If I didn't support you, how did you turn out so well? Bankrupt with anger issues? Recovering alcoholic.
Sexually confused teen mom.
Military psychopath.
And let's not forget about the arsonist felon.
Okay, but Liam is turning out okay.
Liam woke up the other night screaming, "Don't leave me with Frank!" Well, you're alive.
Do you know how many parents murder their children? But you all have blossomed into massively flawed humans because I allowed you.
You you make yourself at home, Ingrid.
- [smooches.]
- Oh, where are you going? To prove this sorry lot of spilled seed wrong.
[door closes.]
You all should be ashamed for talking to your father that way.
But could you get me some scissors glue, a-and some magazines? I'd like to begin my vision board.
Oh, safety scissors.
Nothing too sharp.
I think my medication's wearing off.
Somber horn music Step right up and help build a border wall.

Thank you.
Hip-hop music I'll bet you this place is chock-full of illegal Mexicans.
Uncle Jose is Guatemalan.
Shouldn't we go to the Guatemalan place down the street? We'll go there next.
This place has chocolate-dipped ice cream tacos.
Necesito uno "chocolate" -dipped taco.
- Dos.
- Dos "chocolate" -dipped tacos.
And also have you seen this man on the right? His name is Jose Gomez.
We have his nephew Santiago.

Throwing a punch? No.
I'm South Side, so - Where about? - North Wallace.
Grew up on the corner of Homan and Leonard.
The puke-colored house? The shit-colored house, yes.
[both chuckle.]
Um, your left wrist, it looks a little atrophied.
Uh, yeah, I-I broke it a while ago.
- When'd you get the cast off? - This morning? And you decided boxing was the best first thing to do.
Well, South Side, so Yeah.
So what I want you to do is just mark through on your punches and don't throw any of them full force.
- All right.
- I'll see you in there.
[rock music playing over speakers.]
- Booze for you.
- Oh, thank you.
No booze for you.
Um that was a good effort today, man.
You know, no hard feelings, though, all right? [chuckles.]
Yeah, no sweat.
Everyone wins when you're running for cancer, right? Sure, sure.
Where's my drink? [Boone.]
I think he really likes you.
I'm extremely likeable.
So, um where's he staying tonight? I think he's staying with me.
Is he? I mean, it was a surprise.
I can't have him stay with Cory.
She'd eat him alive.
What, is this a big deal? No.
Uh, no, not at all.
- [Tami.]
Yes! - Nice shot.
Boone, you and me in the finals.
Let's do it.
All right, rack 'em.
You break.
You seem to be handling this all pretty well.
Yeah, why shouldn't I be? [sniffs.]
'Cause they had sex in my guest room last time he was on leave.
It sounded like he was murdering her.
Look, she's not my girlfriend, all right? We can fuck whoever we want.
So make her your girlfriend if you like her.
"Girlfriend" implies a future.
Futures aren't her thing.
Yeah, she says that, but it's just a bullshit self-protection thing.
Tami took her mom's death the hardest.
She tells people she's not gonna live past 40, pretends like she doesn't care if she doesn't have a future.
Shots, please.
Shots over here.
You and me in the consolation game after they finish, yeah? Lip? Yeah.
Yeah, sure.
Did you have to pull a gun on him? You see a brown guy running, you assume he did something wrong.
But you're a black guy.
Oh, you'd think that'd make a difference, wouldn't you? He didn't do anything wrong.
He doesn't have any papers.
What are you gonna do with him now? [indistinct chatter over police radio.]
Fuck! [panting.]
- Fly, my Mexican friend! - Guatemalan! Guatemalan friend! Fly! Higher, just a little bit hi-higher.
Higher, higher.
Yeah, yeah.
Right next to that little black kid with his arm around the komodo dragon.
Thanks, honey.
So what's the point of a vision board? You find images that-that indicate what you want out of life, and you put them on a board so you can see them.
It inspires you to make those things manifest.
You know, you guys should have vision boards.
- Uh, no.
- I don't know.
Oh, come on.
You're young.
Your futures are ahead of you.
What do you want out of life? Hopeful piano music [vape pen crackling.]
[inhales deeply.]
[exhales deeply.]
Rhonda, my old friend.
How are you? I'll be great in 30 seconds when I kick your behind out of here.
Not before I apply for welfare for my children.
Most of your kids are too old.
Uh, not the old set.
Got some new ones coming in about eight and a half months.
Oh, how many? - Could be as many as six.
- Mm, six.
How many women did you get pregnant? [chuckles.]
Just the one.
I'm very virile.
The thing is, the old set doesn't think I'm gonna be able to provide for the new set.
The old set is smarter than I figured they'd be.
And I'd like to prove them wrong.
And going on welfare is how you plan to do that? I've done the math.
Start my checks now.
I'll invest the money in Bitcoin.
You know your way out.
Come on, Rhonda.
Help a brother out.
Excuse me? "Bitcoin billionaire.
" You've heard the phrase? My kids will be set.
I'll never have to bother you or the state of Illinois again.
I will see you in nine months.
That's your final word? - Yes.
- Fine.
This is why people hate big government.
It's all these bureaucratic rules.
I'm just trying to help.
I'm coming up with solutions.
The only solution is to drain the swamp.
[bell dings.]
All right, guys.
Come on.
[grunts softly There you go.
- You good? - Yeah.
All right, guys.
So it's gonna be jab, cross, jab, cross, and then boom.
I want you to put your full force into the hook.
- [Eliza.]
- Got it? All right, cool.
[grunts rhythmically.]
Don't stop breathing, okay? I want you guys to hear you guys breathing before every hit.
- Try again.
- [exhales sharply.]
[grunts rhythmically.]
Made it through, girl.
[exhales deeply.]
Okay, you're new, so I - want you to go slow with it, okay? - Mm-hmm.
Take it easy on your left wrist.
If you get lost, that's your target.
- Ready? - Yep.
Nice, nice.
- Boom Oh! - [Fiona.]
- Sorry.
- [Rob.]
That's okay.
Uh, let's try again.
Rock music Ooh! Fuck! [inhales sharply.]
Oh! You all right? - [coughs, sniffs.]
- [Eliza.]
Jesus Christ.
Oh, man.
Is it bad? Sí.
Hold on [metal clanking.]
[boys shouting.]
Boom, bitches! Fork it over.
Hey, Dirk.
Think you could take my friend here? - This little Mexican tamale? - He's Guatemalan.
It'll be like stealing candy from a piñata.
[boys shouting indistinctly.]
Yes! That's a hell of a left hook you got.
You really put your hip into that one.
Yeah, sorry.
South Side.
Yeah, you warned me.
I, uh I get off in a couple hours.
Maybe you, uh, buy me a drink to make up for it? I just broke your nose.
You think I want to buy you a fucking drink? - [Eliza chuckles.]
Here we go.
- So, no? You know, apparently, you can throw plates at a guy.
- [Rob.]
Throw plates? - You can break their fucking nose, and still, they think that you're hiding their tools - or you want to fuck them.
- I didn't say that.
- Not related things, Fiona.
- They are related.
You know why? 'Cause all men are fucking scum.
All of them! - Sorry, Rob.
- Yeah, sorry, Rob.
Sorry about your nose, Rob.
I hope it heals crooked.
- All right, come on, girl.
- Just wanted a drink.
- [sarcastically.]
- [Eliza.]
Get it together.
[water running.]
[knob squeaks, water stops, drain gurgling.]
[shower curtain swishes.]
Looks like my timing's pretty good.
How, uh how'd you get in here? Debbie.
- Oh.
- So you shower at night? No, Cory puked on me at the Alibi.
You know, uh, you Tamiettis can really hold your liquor.
You get Cami to puke on you, you'll have a Tamietti hat trick.
[both chuckle.]
Look, I get how all this could be weird for you.
Yeah, I, um I'm not entirely sure how it's not weird for you.
Dead soul probably.
It's cool the way you're just rolling with it, though.
I just wanted to say that.
Hey, um - where's Boone? - Asleep.
Still on haji time.
Yeah, uh Um, I don't think so.
What? [drawer closes.]
Did you fuck him? Moody music Does it matter? Yeah, the guy thinks you're marrying him.
So maybe it should matter to you, yeah.
Okay, well, why don't you give me a list of things that should matter to me, and I'll get right on it.
You know, not everybody rolls with things like you, all right? Okay.
That is good to know.
That's a beautiful vision board, Carl.
- Isn't this magnificent? - [door opens.]
- Kelly? - [door closes.]
Why don't you tell us about it? [Carl.]
Well, at the bottom are the hardships Kelly's helped me realize I need to overcome You know, being poor, shitty parents, prison.
And at the top is how I'm gonna overcome those hardships By killing for our country.
Oh, outstanding.
All right, honey.
Why don't you tell us about yours? Vision boarding sucks.
No, what about your goals and your dreams? I don't have any goals or dreams.
All right.
Tell us about that.
The Major always just had them for me.
Graduate at the top of your class, go to a service academy, become an officer, get your legs blown off.
- Your dad's kind of awesome.
- My dad is an ass-munch.
You know, I've never really had anyone tell me what to do, but now I know what my life calling is To protect our country and fight for our freedoms.
What if my calling is to get fat on a couch and have your babies? How fat are we talking? You can do whatever you want.
You just have to decide.
Rock music - Come on.
