You're not welcome here, Liam.
You gotta understand that Frank and Monica wronged this family 20 ways since Tuesday.
I mean, sued Addie for a loose handrail on the porch; opened credit cards in all our names; stole our Chevy Malibu; made meth in the bathroom upstairs.
No, I get it.
But I'm just the only black person in a house full of crackers.
But that's not on you.
Thank you for your time.

I'm sorry.
I got held up at the ATM.
You know, I couldn't get my breakfast sandwich.
My morning's all fucked, and I'm hangry Shut up and check out that line, son.
All asking for tartar sauce.
Drove up new business.
I underestimated you.
- You have game.
- It was easy.
Middle school was having a field day.
You know, three-legged-races, egg toss shit.
You know, it was like taking candy from a baby.
Well, here's your cut, partner.
Thank you, partner.
Yo! I got a line forming in here that's longer than my grandma's tits! - Clock in, pirates! - Sorry, Lori.
Yes, master.
Have fun deep-frying shit in trans fats.
Oh, I will.
Jealous? Hey.
Hey, little man! How's my favorite nephew? Let me take an uninterrupted nine-minute nap last night.
You eager to get back to work? Already? Oh, no, no.
Listen, I was wondering if I could get an advance on my paycheck.
No problem.
Cami'll cut ya a check.
Hey, Cami! Ca Lip needs an advance! Thank you.
Thanks.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- You want to see him? - Yeah.
Any news on when Tami's getting out? Not yet.
They said they were moving her into a regular room today.
So and they said that Freddie can come see her, which is is good.
Thank God.
Killing her not being able to hold him.
It's killing her not to be able to wash her hair, too.
You know, I got an itemized list of hair products to go buy after this.
Um, look, Lip.
Yeah.
About the advance.
The IRS called yesterday.
I'm supposed to garnish your paycheck this week by half.
- Wait, what? - I don't know.
Something about student loans? Or your Social Security? Right.
No, sorry.
I, um I I can take care of that.
I'll take care of that.
Debbie used my real Social Security on a bank account? Have I taught her nothing? Don't be so hard on yourself, Frank.
Look, we've all had accounts frozen by the IRS.
What was she thinking? I haven't used my real Social since draft-dodging in '69.
Well, you can lead a horse to water, - but if the camel's an idiot - What are you doing? No, don't don't don't Don't do I figured I'd give it a shot.
It ate the card.
God dammit! You think this is funny, don't you, you little robot nerd in there! You and your big bank Big Brother and paving the way for automation! This is horse shit! Hey, we're gonna call your Aunt Debbie, huh? Yes, we are.
Yes, we are.
It'll just take a sec.
Boop, boop, boop, hoo.
Hi, Aunt Debbie.
It's Lip and Fred calling.
And we were just wondering if you happened to use my real fucking Social Security and place of employment when you put me on the bank account for my debit card? 'Cause I've got Sallie Mae calling and my paycheck got garnished, and this is exactly what I want to be dealing with with Tami in the hospital.
So I'm feeling a little bit like I might stab you in the fuckin' eye.
Call me back.
You ready, Freddie? Let's go.
Pa, pa, pa.
If somebody comes to the workplace talking about unionization, you probably have somebody, likely from management, come down here and tell you that unions are bad, right? Hey, who is this guy? Union rep.
He stopped us on the way in to tell us about the advantages of organizing.
I'm gonna give him one more minute just to get that free T-shirt, and then I'm gonna clock in.
What the hell is on your wrist? A tennis bracelet.
Why? Because I'm worth it.
But why would we unionize? Isn't our thing that we're not union? Like, in a good way? Yeah, but apparently we can get overtime and dental if we listen to this guy.
Actually, what I said was we have to fight for paid overtime and dental.
2019 is a big negotiations year for us, and we're gonna fight like hell for all of our members.
Let me ask you something Debbie.
Debbie.
All right.
Did you know that this is what the ironworker's union gets as an annual childcare credit? I want a childcare credit.
Yeah, I know you do.
Plus paid holidays, paid overtime, pension and benefits, job security.
Right? You need it, and the only way to get it is with the union.
Now, do you have a voice, Debbie? Yes.
"Yes" or "yeah"? Yes, bitch! Damn.
- I know.
- That's crazy soon.
Yo, you know the rumor is, they're trying to kick out the nonviolent offenders.
Making room for the violent offenders, murderers and armed robbers and the true derelicts like us.
That's right.
I mean, I blew up a van.
Look, I shot a man in the face seven times.
I tortured a rival gang leader for two weeks, fed his body to my pit bulls.
Look, man, you know to watch your back right now though, right? When a brother gets his date, people start coming at him all jealous, trying to sabotage his parole.
How'd your boy take it? Mickey? Uh He didn't really say much, you know? What's his position? His position? His position, man.
Like, what's your deal on the outside, you know, when one of you is out and the other one is still in here? Like me and Consuelo.
He's out; I'm in.
We're doing long-distance the first two years with an option to renew, and we granted mutual permission to engage in sexual activity with other people so long as there's no kissing on the mouth.
Yo, tell me that you and Mickey have had the talk, right? I mean Oh, shit! Oh, this brother is fucked! I mean, why would we talk about something completely hypothetical? My sentence was supposed to be three to five years.
They didn't have the talk.
Look, man, that is prison-gay 101, Gallagher.
You gotta have the talk.
Man, you gotta know what the deal is.
You gotta know where you stand.
Otherwise people get hurt.
Psst! Carl! You want a hot fish filet? Nice.
Very mature.
Jesus, Stump.
Grow up.
Okay, Carl, come with me.
The fish dicks can handle things, can't they? - Yes, Lori.
- Sorry, Lori.
I got a special cleaning assignment for you, my little pirate.
Come with me.
Oh, spoiler alert: It's already clean.
So then what am I cleaning? Hey, use a safe-word! "Harder" is not a good safe word.
See, that's the thing, Liam.
Pride equals job equals self-esteem equals more pride.
Repeat that back to me.
Pride equals self-esteem equals pride.
Right.
See, that's why I do what I do.
That's why I sell used cars.
Because I believe in value.
It's rewarding to put a beautiful, proud black man in a good, reliable car.
Let him hold his head sky high.
I just wish there was a list of rules.
How to be a black man in America.
Which America? This one? No, no, no, see: There's black America, like here in South Side.
And we're black, and there's a set of rules for how to be black here, right? Gotta be strong but never the aggressor.
Can't let anyone punk you.
No open toe shoes, etcetera.
But then there's being black in white America.
Now, which America we talking about? I'm not sure.
All right.
Which elementary school did you go to? Hopkins Academy.
Okay, we going straight white America.
Rules for a black man are simple: Never go out after 6:00 p.
m.
Never wear a hoodie darker than sky blue.
And never acknowledge sexual desires around white women.
Gotta eat sushi now.
Yes to yoga.
Yes to farm-to-table.
Yes to TED Talks.
Yes to Banksy.
No to all other street art.
You getting all this? Okay, wow.
Now, if a cop stops you, that's its own list: Never run.
No reaching.
No sudden movements.
Little smile can't hurt.
Compliment the cop.
I like your tie, sir.
What lovely eyes you have.
This is all Debbie's? Debbie Gallagher's? Yeah.
Someone has a secret she-shed down by the seashore.
I It's like the moment a-a master forger sees his student's work for the first time and recognizes her brilliance.
What does she do, re-sell all this? She wears it and returns it within 30 days to get a full cash refund.
What a conniving, nasty, little genius! And here I thought she was a straight shooter.
This requires real craft.
I feel deep love for her.
Grab the totes and clutches.
I'll grab the pumps.
Let's bleed her dry.
No, no, wait Well, hold on a second, Mikey.
She earned all this stolen shit fair and square.
And I'm not a tyrant king, am I? I want to be benevolent and fair with my subjects.
We'll only take the Gucci.
Just enough to cover the ATM mishap, plus interest.
Your grace is a thing of beauty, your grace.
You missed a spot.
Over there.
Oh, yeah.
That's the stuff.
So, Carl.
You've had some time to unpack and settle in.
I wanted to give you that.
But I think it's time we have a chat about our relationship now.
You mean like a performance review? 'Cause I'm your employee? Carl.
Carl, Carl, Carl.
Lori, we can't.
- The employee manual says - I I wrote the employee manual, Carl.
Oh, okay.
Well, there's someone else.
Who, Anne? I saw you checking out that little gordita today.
The new girl? I wasn't checking her out.
I have a girlfriend.
The Navy girl with the dumb truck? Yeah, and she's at plebe summer.
We're more serious than ever.
Plus you're my boss.
And old.
No more talking, Carl.
Lori, please.
I love my girlfriend Kelly! You know how to knock, Gonzalez? Sorry.
We ran out of napkins.
Didn't mean to interrupt.
Jesus.
Hey.
All Gucci or Prada.
All NWT.
"New with tags.
" You like that term? I just learned that.
Where'd you get all this shit from, Frank? Ask me no questions, and I will tell you no lies.
Can I get a Jamie neat double with a Jamie back? Me too.
I gotta piss.
I'll give you 50 bucks for the bag, Frank.
Oh, grow up, Kevin.
There's $2,500 worth of goods there.
The Blue book's over a grand.
Make it a hundy? Done.
That wasn't a very good negosh, Kev.
Watch and learn.
All right, Frank.
20, 40, 60, 80, 100.
- I thank you.
- Except you gotta pay your outstanding Alibi tab.
How much was that again, V? Infinity dollars.
So this just goes back to the house.
Well, this is some tomfuckery! You're gonna take my goods and leave me with zero? Correct.
Kermit! Tommy! You just gonna sit there and let this happen? - We hate you, Frank.
- Yeah.
Jeez.
Sounds like he's in labor.
Nah, he probably just really needed to pee.
Ow, fuck! The burn! All right.
I'll go check on him.
You doing okay in here, Mikey? - Yeah, yeah.
- Jeez.
I'm okay.
Here, give me your hand.
You look a little moist there, my friend.
What's wrong? What's the date? I don't know.
June? Ish? Do I look a little yellow to you, Frank? Mustard-y, now that you mention it.
I got to get to the vet.
To the vet? Beaks, Whiskers & Snouts Animal Hospital on West Ellis.
Ask for Dr.
Drew.
Tell him you got a husky.
Did you take something you should've been sharing with me? Quickly, Francine.
Before I get wacky! Okay.
Okay, okay.
You're a husky.
Dr.
Drew.
Yeah.
You stay with me, Mikey.
Hey, you free at the moment? What kinda dumb fucking question is that? I think we need to have a talk.
About? About what we're gonna do.
About? Parole, Mickey.
About me getting out and you, well, not.
Do we do long distance or no distance, marriage, kids, or or, uh, retirement? - What are you talking about? - I don't fucking know! Apparently we were supposed to have a talk a while ago but just never got the memo.
What memo? Well, do you or do you not want to be in a long-distance relationship when I'm out? No.
What is this, a fucking rom-com movie? If you're out there, you're gonna be fucking other people; so will I.
No long-distance.
Can't we just, like, wait for each other? So, great, now we're in a fuckin' horror movie? Look, it would be one thing if you felt differently about leaving, but you don't.
What does that mean? It means if there was a part of you that felt maybe you owed it to me to throw your To throw your parole hearing so that you could stay in here because I threw my whole fuckin' life away getting tossed in here to be with you, then we'd at least be having a different conversation I didn't ask you to do that for me.
No, I just did it 'cause it was the right thing.
You want me to tank my parole hearing on purpose so I'm stuck in prison with you? I'm not asking you for shit, Gallagher.
You want me to choose to do it without you asking.
I want you to want to do what you want.
But if I choose it, you would be happy.
I just want to know, yes or no.
Would you be fucking happy? - Yes, fuck, yes.
- Then I'll do it.
I'll fuck up my hearing so that I can stay with you.
If that's what you want, fine.
- Yeah, fine.
- Good.
Good.
Hey, V, guess what.
I have a new black uncle.
- You do? - His name's MaVar.
He's great.
He's taking me to the Sox/Cubs game.
Wait a second.
Who is this guy? Used car salesman.
Lives down the street.
Used car salesman? That's code for shady.
He married? Got kids of his own? I think he's gay.
And he dresses real slick.
He says I can bring a friend.
Wanna come? No.
And neither should you.
Stranger danger.
V, you should go.
You were just talking about how you need to make new friends.
And I think a little gayboy car salesman sounds perfect for you.
My mom loves hers.
Found him at Toyota.
And it's the Cubs/Sox game.
What do you have to lose? Fellow welders.
Thank you all for joining me and union Jerry here in this neutral, non-work-related location.
Have you all got fries? Perfect.
I've done some Googling, and I've gotta warn you: what I'm about to say is triggering.
The plumbers get Easter off.
They get Veterans Day off, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July, their birthdays, and get this: Columbus Day, Farhad, take a wild guess.
How many paid weeks off do you think they get at Christmas? One? Three.
Two for Christmas, one for Hanukkah/Kwanzaa.
They get sick days.
They get dental, including orthodontia.
Look at this bitch.
She has Invisalign.
Now, do we believe in change? The rights of workers matter.
Union Jerry, I would like to commence a vote.
To join the union! Who's with me? - Sorry, I - It's okay.
I can wait outside if you want.
No, whatever.
We're all adults here.
So you all done for today? Uh, yeah, because shift's over.
Right.
It was a dumb question anyway.
Shift's over.
You got anything going on for the rest of the day? More work.
Got my third job with my family.
My stupid cousin threw his back out landscaping, so it's all hands on deck for the family business.
Oh, yeah? You guys need a hand, I could come by.
You would not last an hour making tamales.
Look, I don't mean to straight-up neg you, but FYI I'm not trying to be some pirate's side-piece this summer.
I heard you say you have a girlfriend.
Yeah, so? I mean, we can still be friends.
We're vape partners, Captain Bob associates.
We should be able to hang out.
Plus I make dope tamales.
You know how to make tamales? Oh, yeah.
Big time.
Okay.
Hey, sorry for the wait.
A corgi came in with a cyst.
Had to aspirate, very stressful.
So, Mikey.
How you feeling? Not good, doc.
Ah, well, of course you're not feeling well.
You need dialysis.
Were due days ago.
Dialysis? Mm.
Kidney disease.
End stage renal at this point.
That's full kidney fail, stage 5.
You have kidney disease? I only have one kidney! We have so much in common.
Okay.
Here we go.
Take your own temperature, Mikey.
You know the drill.
Yeah, we do dialysis every few weeks.
It keeps him walking around.
But this dialysis is for pets, So about an eighth of the strength he needs.
About ready? Let's see what we got.
Mm-hmm.
Mild fever.
All right, well, let's, uh, let's get that shirt off and hook up the port.
Up you go.
- Oh, jeez.
- Oh, Jesus.
- Jesus H.
Christ.
- Lucifer.
Yeah, it's a little angry right now.
No, that is infected.
Mikey, and maybe staph, too.
Oh, god, what a stench.
Like a can of tuna in a hot car, buddy.
That needs to be replaced immediately, and that is people-doctor stuff, Mikey.
You're gonna have to go to an ER.
That gonna cost a lot of money, Doc? I have no idea.
If you were a dog, I'd recommend we put you down.
Okay, I'll go.
But could you just do me a little doggie dialysis right now, please? Do you have the 150 you owe me from last time? Aww, give the man an hour on the machine! Payment is due at time of service.
150 from last time, 150 for today, 300 total.
I can't do math, Doc.
I'm sick! Okay, you get that dialysis ready.
We'll go visit the Debbie ATM.
Okay.
All right.
- Oh.
- There you go, buddy.
Let's go.

Blood pressure's only slightly elevated.
177 over 122.
That's good.
- Hi, you.
- Hi, you.
Getting better one day at a time.
And one fart conversation at a time.
I swear to Christ, a doctor asks me every 20 minutes if I've passed gas, 'cause apparently that's how they know if my abdomen is permanently severed.
All right.
Ooh, did you bring my shampoo? Oh, no.
But I brought you something better.
You did? What? Ta-da! Thought that now that you're out of ICU, you might like to try some skin-to-skin.
What do you think, buddy? Huh? Hey, hey.
Hey, what's wrong? Sorry.
He's just so beautiful, and he's meeting me like this, with tubes in me and my hair all gross and matted.
Tami, he doesn't care.
He just wants to see his mom, you know? And it's gonna hurt to hold him.
Maybe not.

Tell me about you.
You know, distract me.
I'm good.
Yeah, yeah.
Things are great.
I was thinking we might need a hand with childcare, you know.
Just so I can get some overtime at work.
Why? Just 'cause he costs a lot of money.
I don't know when you're gonna be back up on your feet, doing hair again and stuff.
Uh, we yeah, we do.
It's gonna be soon.

But I did play basketball at Georgetown.
Oh! Is that right? Okay, this is not what I meant by a new friend.
I meant a girlfriend or a very gay man.

Do you know where Lip is? I couldn't get a hold of him, and, you know, I could really use some advice right now.
Oh, I think he's probably still at the hospital.
No way.
Is Tami in labor? She had the baby.
The whole thing's fucked up.
Tami almost died.
She's still in the hospital.
Lip's up shit's creek trying to handle the newborn alone.
It's a hot mess.
But the baby's all right? Debs? Debbie? No.
Debbie, can you hear me? - No! - Hello? No! No! No! What's with you? Lip had the baby.
Oh, yeah? Boy or girl? I don't know.
We got cut off.
Something's wrong.
Tami's still in the hospital.
Lip's all alone with the baby.
Well, congrats.
You're an uncle.
I already was.
All right, then.
Stop the tape.
There.
Can you zoom in? Those motherfuckers.
Then they return with a dolly at 016:00 hours.
Sorry I missed it.
I nap from one to three, usually.
Can I borrow your gun? No.
Taser? - Twenty bucks? - Forty.
Deal.
Be right back, okay? Be right back.
Hey, excuse me.
Can you hold that? Thank you.
Hey.
Hey, it's all right.
Shh.
That's all right.
That's all right.
Here, give him to me.
I'll hold him so you can smoke.
Oh, really? The struggle is real.
I haven't finished a cigarette since 2015.
Go on, I got him.
You a child abductor? I'm Sarah.
I have three kids under five.
If I wanted to run, I'm too tired.
- Yeah, okay.
- Okay, take this.
You got him? I'm gonna be right over here, okay? What brings you to church? AA? OA? NA? Al Anon? Nar Anon? Actual Catholicism? AA.
You? NMAA.
New Mom AA.
We're self-titled.
Basically a bunch of new moms in sweatpants trying not to lose our shit and blow our brains out, all while lactating on each other.
Sounds like a real rager.
It is.
He likes you.
It's my eau de breast milk.
Shoulda worn it in high school.
Been prom queen.
Thank you again.
That's the nicest thing anyone's done for me in a long time.
You're welcome.

See, I'm not a mom.
You sure? Frank Gallagher! Show yourself! I want my stuff back! Come out, Frank! I'm gonna find you! This shit is about to get biblical! You're not gonna believe this.
We actually made a profit selling Debbie's stuff today.
After we pay that vet, we got 50 bucks left.
Let's have a party.
A quinceañera.
I'm 15, in a dress.
Hit the piñata.
You know, that's not a bad idea: Maximize our profits.
We take the fifty bucks, we buy a keg, charge 10 bucks at the door.
We do it at my house so it doesn't cost us anything.
- Ca-ching.
- Yeah.
- Hello.
- Hey, Doc.
It's all there.
Count it.
Ah.
Dialysis time.
Hey, surprise, surprise.
All righty.
Now, uh, I can't stick the dialysis into a port that is that infected.
So I'm gonna have to douse ya with disinfectant first.
Okay? Yeah.
This'll do it.
Cleans the kennels.
- Rubbing alcohol? - Yeah.
You're gonna want to hold him down.
'Cause this is gonna hurt.
Get the shirt off.

Getting notes of buttered popcorn this time.
Here you go, buddy.

Ready? One, two Think of the party.
Be brave.
Three! Here, you earned it.
Thank you.
So you guys do this every night? You ever get any sleep? Yeah, that's why they call it a family business.
So labor laws don't apply.
What's your family's business? Uh, you know, drugs? Abuse? Sometimes we show up for each other's court dates.
I gotta say, I lied before.
I don't really know how to make tamales.
No shit.
Really? I just wanted to spend time with you in a place that smells like corn.
'Cause you like me? Uh, si? What about your girlfriend? And you have this whole thing with Lori too? Lori? No, I don't I don't have a thing with Lori.
And the Kelly thing is, you know, I don't know.
She's gonna be at Annapolis for years.
She wants to be an admiral or some shit.
I don't know.
It's it's complicated.
What'd he say? Uh, break's over.
- Back to work.
- Wait, that was break? I thought we were done.
We're just getting started.
Hey, it's Milkovich's boy.
What's up, Milkovich's boy? How your daddy? Fucking miss that guy.
He still alive? Yeah, unfortunately.
Oh, he's a jokester! Funny guy.
Should we cut this bitch, Nana? Nah.
I liked his pop.
He had manners.
I got manners too, Nana.
I brought smokes.
Three packs.
Okay.
I'm listening.
I guess I need some advice.
It's about my partner, Ian.
Business or pleasure? Pleasure.
Continue.
Found out he's up for parole next week, and I But you had the talk, right? We kinda didn't until earlier today Didn't have the talk.
Fuckin' amateur hour.
But he says he's gonna throw his parole so he can stay in here with me, which I want him to do.
I mean, I fucking got myself put in here just to be with him.
So I mean, I'm right, right? But now your conscience is saying, no, dog, you're a dick, right? See, the thing is, little Milky You can't make someone love you.
You can't let someone throw their parole for you neither, son.
It's like my tattoo says: Let her go.
No good's gonna come from both of you being here together.
If you make him do this for you, he's gonna wind up resenting you and hating you.
You gotta set him free.
What do you boys think? I think number 7, number 14, and number 31.
Agreed.
