Hate crime, tweeting it.
I don't really care.

All that you can ask for.
But you know what's even crazier? Man, boo.
You gotta stop.
We get it.
You're black.
You need to stop talking that shit, little brother.
Mom moved us out here for a reason.
Not a part of that anymore.
Okay, okay.
You gotta chill with the little bro shit.
You're only seven minutes older than me, G.
Right but seven minutes can make all the difference, my dear.
She's clearly the brains of this operation.
You know what, you're right.
Like seven minutes alone with me, my alabaster queen.
It can change yours as well.
Found him.
Oh, oh, oh! (HIP HOP MUSIC PLAYING) Hey Hey, it's me.

It was pretty serious.
My grandma loved Paris.
She never went back though.
We're still going, right? You promised to take us to Paris.
Oh shoot.
What time was it? My promise isn't going to mean much if my mom finds out I missed another day of class.
I gotta make a cameo on English at least.

What the hell are you doing? Get away from there before you give me a damn heart attack.
What? The view's great.
I'm sorry they didn't show.
It's fine.
I didn't really expect them to.
Expectation isn't a part of the deal.
That sort of comes with the title.
If it's any consolation, I'm hella proud of you, Jay.
No one can touch what you got.
I'm guessing that award went off the roof too.

What happens when they disappear? It's not going anywhere.
He's really your forever? Yeah.
He's my Prince in Paris, he's my My sun and my moon so I can't just Let that go, you know.

So So I would say vastly irresponsible expenditures of someone else's money can fix most problems.
Well all my heroes are dead.
(LAUGHS) But they're well dressed.
Wait for a second.
(JANELLE) It's okay.
We're right here if you need us.
Bobby, we don't need to talk.

Janelle! Call us when you need us.
After graduation, you and me.
We're going.
I promise.
(JANELLE'S DAD) Rough day at school today? It must be rough.
What are you two doing home? We live here.
Let's worry less about that and focus on how long we're grounding you for.
Grounded? (LAUGHS) Is this the nineties? (JANELLE'S MOM) We are gone for two weeks and we come home to W-what is this? You could not even call a cleaning service to come in and clean up? Is that how little you respect us? How little you respect yourself.
You were supposed to be gone for three weeks and I-I am sorry.
Okay, let's not pretend like you care what I do You said you were getting some kind of award and we got back here as fast as we That was yesterday! Okay that changed the facts on the ground look around you, Janelle.
And let's not even talk about the money that you've been stealing from Daddy's drawers or the charges that you've been racking up on daddy's card.
No, I'm sorry.
The only thing petty is how little you two even care There have to be consequences, Janelle.
Jesus Christ.
You haven't even said hello.
(SCOFFS) Well, hello there, Janelle.
You're grounded.
You can't do that.
My grades Your grades aren't the issue here.
We invested too much in your independence and you weren't ready for it.
Well you should have thought about that before leaving me alone since I was four with nannies Janelle.
Come on.
We love you.
We only want what's best for you.
What's best for me? No.
How do you even know what's best We know these friends of yours are pulling you down, we know that Bobby Blaine is no good for you.
Bobby is the only constant thing in my life.
Okay? The last time I checked the real problem is you two don't know a single thing about your own daughter! (JANELLE'S MOM) Janelle! (JANELLE'S DAD) We're not finished here.
(CRYING) (PHONE RINGING) (WHISPERING) Please, c'mon, pick up (BOBBY'S ANSWERING MACHINE) What up? You know what to do.

Just call me back, okay? I love you.
(JANELLE'S DAD) Janelle! Where are you? We got a lot to talk about! (ENGINE STARTS) Returned customer.
So what is it that you need? To (VOICE CRACKING) Forget.
Look, if you really wanna forget I'm the king of that.
That's just a cop out.
I got a much better solution.
What's that? You need that Justin Bieber.
Why do you name all your drugs after white pop stars.
(TYRELL LAUGHS) Well, that white girl is coca-crack but that white boy is the heroin.
It'll make you forget everything.
Take you straight to heaven's gate.
I won't remember any of it? Nada.
Let me take you to heaven.
(JANELLE'S DAD) You're her boyfriend! It's been over 36 hours! Nobody's heard from her.
My girl is missing.
How do we know that you're not involved in this? Are you messing with me right now? You left Janelle alone for months at a time throughout her entire life.
You even know what that does to somebody like Janelle? We made mistakes.
Acting like she doesn't even exist isn't a mistake.
All the dances and and birthdays and awards that you weren't there for, I was there! You know all this talking and here you are, shaking like a leaf.
Do you need some water, Bobby? I'm fine, Mrs.
My God, you look so much like your mother right now.
That's none of your business.
Doesn't he? She couldn't hold her shit either.
We're calling the police one time to find her the other, to have you arrested for whatever you're in possession of.
I'll find her.
Just give me a couple hours.
Clock's ticking.
Have any of you guys seen Janelle yet? What, she hasn't hit you back yet? No.
What's your cousin's address? (LAUGHS) Bro Yo, please, dude.
It's just a flyer.
It's probably not even right, but I need to turn over every stone right now.
What the hell is the address? Bro.
If she been up for this long you think she's trying to leave now? Give me the address! 1245 Crow St.
Shad, you're driving.
- Are you high - You're driving me, Shad! (HIP HOP MUSIC PLAYING) Yo.
Just wait here.
I'll be back with Janelle Nah, you don't get it bro.
Them dudes don't play around.
I don't got no pass.

You the one trying to ramble a ho.
You can't look at me like I'm lying.
Shad? Look, I love you, boo, but These guys are heavy as hell.

Just look around.
Pop this little bitch! Put him and Snowflake in the Benz.
And set that bitch on fire.
(LAUGHS) Ooh! You a thinker, Luther! See, that's why I keep you around.
I mean I kind of regret it.
Janelle's a sweet kid.
It was a mistake.
It was.
She knows that.
Why is it white dudes always cry "mistake" when they fall into some ass? That wasn't a mistake.
That was a choice.
What's the mistake you running here trying to save her ass like you John Wick or some shit.
But all she wanted me to do was take the pain away.
Which I did.
This ain't a movie bitch.
You destroyed her.
(TYRELL) Come on, Bobby.
Look, don't high-road me, son.
Only damage that I might have caused is just fast forwarding what you already started.
I never did that.
I never did that.
She was already doing hard shit before I ever She was - Bobby! - She was! Bobby! It's just us here.
Right? Now that cough show was almost convincing.
But I do this shit for a living.
I know a junkie when I see one.
He keep on calling me, he's calling me.
(LAUGHING) Asshole! Whoa, whoa! - O.
, huh? Hard Bobby.
(BOBBY SCREAMS) Alligator tears.
God damn it.
You good.
so you want a replay telling her how much you love this sweet, pretty, talented, generous, little snowflake.
I mean what's not to love, right? That's my grandmother's necklace.
World War II and all that bullshit.
Look, Bobby.
It was only a matter of time before you sold it for a hit right? At least now you, uh you know where it is.
You know what I heard? The two of you were running off to Paris together.
Pimps been hitting tricks with lines like that since the Pyramids.
So save your tears.
'Cause ain't nobody buying that shit.
Well except for her at one point.
No, no, no, no.
No! No! No! You can't kill us.
You can't kill us, okay? Her parents are calling the cops.
They'll be all over this place.
(TYRELL) Kill you? What the hell do you think this is? Bobby, this ain't some lame Netflix shit that you binged.
Here's what we're gonna do.
See, I don't give a shit how you break it down or how much you use.

How could you do that? Look at you.
Bobby (SCOFFS) Your life goes to shit in what, two days? Shooting up with those, those animals? I don't understand.
Of course you don't understand! I can't bring you home to your parents like this.
They'll throw my ass in jail! Do you have any idea what you've done?! Do you have any idea what you've gotten me into?! You stupid junkie bitch! Ugh.
(TASHA) What the hell are you doing? (BECKY) Baby, What's wrong? (BOBBY) Tell her.
