Tell Me a Story The police are useless.
I found him.
Jesus Chri! JORDAN: Tell me who the third pig is.
I will never go away.
I will torture you for the rest of your life.
I found this $2 million.
We need to hit the road.
Gabe, Hannah.
Hi, Mom.
I've arranged for my company plane - to take you to Puerto Rico.
- Thank you.
PATRICK: How do you know Madeline and Richard? When I was 11 and my brother was 6, our mother walked out on us.
You were cheating on Mom.
That's why she's dead.
ETHAN: Wonder what happens to a teacher who sleeps with their students.
Such a flagrant abuse of power.
I want to know who else you sent that photo to.
[GROANS] Remember: safety first.
Do not pass the gun back and forth.
Hold it tight in your hand like this.
Feels just like home, doesn't it? Now listen here, especially you first-timers.
The safety on this model is the little lever here on the trigger, so you're gonna want to keep your finger off till you're ready to fire.
On to rule numero two.
Do not be the guy who keeps his finger on the trigger while he's holding the gun.
You're just gonna end up getting distracted, and shooting something you wasn't supposed to.
Trust me.
Friend of mine did that.
That's how he ended up with the nickname Three-Toed Todd.
I got a lot of comments on my last video [LIQUID SPATTERING] TIM: Hey, Ma.
Is Kayla up? Well, I can hear her up there.
Are you sick? You don't sound too good.
Oh, it's just a little cold.
Nothing serious.
I guess you heard our fight last night.
[LAUGHS] It was a big fight.
One of our bigger ones.
I don't know how much you heard, um It's not true.
This affair Kayla thinks I was having.
It It wasn't like that.
Abby and I were having problems, and she pulled away from me, and, um there's more to it.
You're telling the wrong person.
She won't talk to me.
[CHUCKLES] I've tried.
I I'll keep trying.
Kayla can we? - Feel better, Ma.
- Mm-hmm.
I'm not feeling up to going into the shop today.
After school, can you open up and handle the deliveries? Yeah, sure.
The boxes are all ready to go.
And the, uh, last FedEx drop-off is at 4:30 p.
No worries.
I'll take care of it.
And you're not going out like that.
It's getting chilly.
[CHUCKLES] I'll be fine.
Oh, you California people, you have no idea how quickly the weather can change here.
Take this.
Thank you.
- I'll see you later.
- Kayla.
You're gonna have to figure out this thing with your dad.
He's trying miserably, but he is trying.
It's red velvet.
You probably don't remember, but at one time, you loved these.
I, uh, I remember.
Where's Hannah? I was hoping we could all eat together before you left.
She's not hungry.
Richard went to the office to make all the arrangements for your flight.
He shouldn't be long.
Then we'll both take you to the airport.
You'll be in Puerto Rico by the end of the day.
[LAUGHS SOFTLY] Thank you for helping us.
You eat up.
It's gonna get cold.

[CHUCKLES]: I will.
You can finally get out of this little shithole trailer.
[BOTH LAUGH] You sure you want to come with me? Hmm? What-what are you saying, Eddie? You don't want me to come with you? I'm just saying you know Ah, come here.
[EXHALES] I'm just saying you could do a lot better than me, - you know? - Oh.
Yeah, I know.
[LAUGHS SOFTLY] But I love you, you idiot.
Have you heard from Ethan? Yeah.
We texted some.
I don't know why you're still bothering.
Okay, you have your Prince Charming and I have mine.
Neither one is ideal.
Is his suspension up soon? Yeah, in a few days.
[PHONE VIBRATES] Let me guess.
- I'll catch up with you.
- Whatever.
[YELPS] Good morning.
[CHUCKLES] It is now.
Careful, we're a block from school.
- Someone could see us.
- No one's gonna see us.
What's going on with you? Well, I-I just After you left last night, I couldn't stop thinking about you and how we only get to be us at night, in my shitty apartment, so I thought, uh Thought what? Thought we could spend the day together.
I called in sick.
We can have the whole day to ourselves.
What do you say, huh? I don't know.
I-I can't get into any more trouble right now.
Sure, sure, I understand.
No, it's-it's not that, it's just Okay.
[CHUCKLES] Yeah, let's do it.
What-what do you have in mind? You sure it's the boyfriend of the dead woman? Yeah, yeah, it's him.
I'm sure.
He's been hounding Eddie.
He even showed up at my place.
How come you're just telling me about this guy now? You didn't exactly take very well to our visits.
Last time got ugly.
This guys just out there playing vigilante all on his own.
I mean, I-I don't blame the guy, but I figured I should tell you.
It's you he's after.
I can't take him out.
It's too risky.
Cops investigating.
It's already in the news.
This guy ends up disappearing, nah, nah, it's no good.
When's the money coming? Is there a problem or something? Yes, yes, there's a problem.
I'm not gonna lie to you, I j I'm dealing with it.
I just need a little more time.
I'm counting on that money for me and Shelley.
I just want to get us out of here.
Have I ever screwed you before? No, Sam.
Lay low for now.
You hear from this guy again, you call me.
[KNOCKING ON DOOR] Hannah? Can I come in? I thought you might need these aspirin after last night.
I guess I had a few to drink.
- About last night, I'm - Oh.
Don't apologize.
I wanted to ask you what you said last night, about the explosion you were in and your injuries, um how much of that was true? It doesn't matter.
[LAUGHS] I thought you could take him on your trip.
You kept him all this time? He was your favorite.
Well, until he wasn't.
It's been so long.
You two were inseparable for years, and then you turned ten double digits, it was a big deal and you just suddenly outgrew him.
I thought I lost him.
I took him.
He was a little piece of you.
I'm not the evil witch you think I am, Hannah.
I don't pretend to know who you are.
Well, I was young and selfish.
I had no business being a mother.
I know you think I met Richard and just picked up and ran away, but I was a sick woman, Hannah.
I had a breakdown the day I abandoned you and your brother, and I didn't know it at the time, but it was the first of many.
Eventually, I was diagnosed and treated for manic depression.
So that's your excuse? No excuse.
It's just the truth.
Sweetheart, back then I believed you and Gabe were better off without me.
And now? Now now it's not really up to me.
Okay, how's it looking? Um What is it? Come on.
No, I mean, it's good, it's good.
It's just, I, uh I just didn't realize what big ears you have.
[SCOFFS] Or what big eyes you have.
Says the girl with the wolf tattoo.
Yeah, mm-hmm.
Oh, and look at those chompers.
- What? - [KAYLA LAUGHS] [LAUGHS] Oh, my [GROWLS] - Okay, okay, okay.
- Oh I'm sorry I brought you into this mess.
I do what I want.
I make my own choices.
This isn't what I wanted for us, for me.
[CHUCKLES] I had a whole 'nother life in mind.
What's that? - You really want to know? - Mm-hmm.
I wanted to be a racer.
[CHUCKLES] I'm serious.
You know, when I was kid, I wanted to be Jeff Gordon.
Was he some sort of big deal? Is he some kind of a big deal? What do you think? Of course he's a big deal in the racing world.
I don't How come I didn't know about this? Ah, it's stupid.
It's too late for that now.
Maybe there's another dream out there for you.
Fuck dreaming.
I do one wrong thing, leads to another wrong thing.
Next thing you know, you're stuck in a bunch of wrongs, you're looking for an easy way out.
Except nothings easy.
It should be.
Maybe it is for some people.
Not for me.
I just wish one thing could be easy.
Florida will be.
Easier and better, babe, you'll see.
I hope so.
I'm gonna go.
I got to pack.
And so do you.
After I get my stuff, I, uh, I'm gonna stop by the club, pick up my paycheck.
And I think we should, uh, leave late, miss traffic, yeah? You listening? Babe? Yeah, sounds good.
How do I look? Like a golfer and a glass of scotch gave birth to a gay baby.
I could live with that.
You'll be a hit in Puerto Rico.
Oh, there's more.
I have a whole bag of Richards stuff if you want to go through it.
Is that Richard? He's early.
Who is that? [DOORBELL RINGS] - Madeline.
- Mom.
What is it? Don't answer that.
Mom, please.
All right.
Come with me.
- Stay here.
- Okay.
Be quiet.
I'll handle this.
- Mrs.
Winston? - Yes.
I'm Detective Herrera, with NYPD.
My partner, Detective Grant.
New York? You're quite a ways from home.
How can I help you? We need to speak with your son, Gabriel.
We're hoping you might know where he is.
I haven't seen him in years.
What about your daughter, Hannah? Even longer.
Ma'am, do you mind if we talk inside? Of course.
Please come in.
So what have my children gotten themselves wrapped up in now? It's a pretty sensitive matter.
Well, if you want me to help We're investigating a murder that occurred at your sons apartment a few days ago.
- What? - HERRERA: Gabriels roommate.
He was found stabbed and tortured.
There's been no sign of Gabriel.
And you think he It's important that we find him.
And his sister, Hannah.
We believe she's involved as well.
HERRERA: Can you give us any information about where your children are? - Can you hear? - Now is not the time to protect them.
Aiding and abetting is a serious offense, Mrs.
I don't know where they are.
I think we all know you're lying.
You're wrong.
I don't.
For the last time, Mrs.
[QUIETLY]: I don't hear anything.
Me neither.
Maybe they left.
Oh, my God.
- It's okay.
- Have they gone? What the fuck? You just said it was okay.
And it's going to be, but right now, you two need to go back to New York with these detectives.
This is what's best for you and everyone.
I can't be part of murder.
I can't do that to Richard.
We didn't murder anybody.
Then you have to go with these people and make things right.
Why don't you both come with us? - But - Gabe, she's not worth it.
We have to take you back to New York.
HERRERA: Where are your things? Their bags are upstairs.
I'll show you.
NICK: These are amazing.
KAYLA: They're just doodles from class.
Oh, so when you're supposed to be paying attention? - KAYLA: Maybe.
- [BOTH LAUGH] You're a real artist.
My mom, she was a real artist.
You must have her talent.
Is that what you want to do? You want to go to art school? [SIGHS] Maybe.
Yeah, in-in Paris.
Or somewhere exotic.
- Sounds good.
- Hmm.
You studying abroad.
I could write my novel.
We could run away.
Are you serious? Think about it.
Just you and me, Paris.
And anywhere, for that matter.
As-as long as we're together.
- [LAUGHS] - Kayla, I love you.
I'm sorry, I misread that moment.
- I - [PHONE BUZZING] It's fine.
- A-Are you sure? - Yeah, totally fine.
Uh - Shit.
- What is it? I was supposed to open up the costume shop for Colleen an hour ago.
All right.
Oh, well, Kayla - No, you don't understand.
- Please, wait.
She asked me to do this one thing, and I fucked up again.
I did I didn't mean to freak you out or I'm sorry, I have to go.
HANNAH: Are we under arrest? Why the handcuffs? HERRERA: They're for your safety.
And for ours.
That's my phone.
You'll get it back.
Get in.
[GABE SIGHS] Hannah, I'm sorry.
Gabe You were right about Mom.
I'm a fucking idiot.
I shouldn't have brought us here.
She's family, you know.
I just thought that We are a family, you and me.
You got that? [CAR DOOR OPENS] [SIGHS] Hey, Shell.
How's my baby? Oh, hey yourself, sweetheart.
I'll tell you how's your baby.
She's pissed as fuck! 'Cause I got an alert from the bank - about your little withdrawal.
- All right, yeah.
About that Shell, Eddie needed the money.
You gave it to that piece of shit? He's my brother, Shell, and right now, he needs it more than we do.
It's our entire savings, Mitch.
No shit.
I earned the money.
For us, for our future.
Not for Eddie.
I promise, I am gonna take care of us, but right now, Eddies got to get out of town.
- You always put your brother first.
- What are you talk You're my wife! You're always number one.
You know that.
Our entire savings, Mitch.
[BIRDS SINGING] Why are we stopping? Shut the fuck up.
What are they doing? I think They're going through my bag.
Oh, shit.
We got the money.
They're not cops.
We got to get out of here.
[ENGINE STARTS] - [SNIFFLES] - [DOOR SHUTS] Colleen, I'm so sorry.
I lost track of time.
When you didn't reply to my text messages, I went to the shop, and, uh, took care of the shipment myself.
Well, I got you something.
What is it? Uh, some soup and some muffins.
I didn't know what flavor you like, so I got-I got you a few.
[CHUCKLES] Thank you.
I skipped school today with that guy I told you about.
- We went to the park.
- Oh.
I see.
How was that? Not good.
He told me he loved me.
I mean, how can he love me? He barely knows me.
I've been here for five minutes.
Well, it sounds like he's really into you.
I guess.
Whatever, it's been a weird day.
[CHUCKLES] I really hate what I did.
What you did? What do you mean? I'm sorry that I didn't go to the shop today.
[SIGHS] I'm sorry that I let you down.
I really hope you'll give me a second chance.
[DOG BARKING] Are you just gonna ignore me all night? [MICROWAVE BEEPS, STARTS] I don't have nothing to say.
Come on, Shell.
He's my brother.
I can't turn my back on him.
Yeah, what about us? That money was supposed to be for our future, not your loser brothers.
Don't you want to get out of this house? More than anything.
You think I want to live under your fathers thumb the rest of my life? - Hey, my father's been good to you.
- [GROANS] Made me feel like half a man.
Really, really great, Shell.
[MUFFLED]: The guy's got nothing good to say about me.
Come on in.
I actually don't I don't think I should.
Everything okay? Yeah I've been, uh, trying to - call you, yeah.
- Yeah, I know.
I just needed a minute.
Yeah, I figured.
I got caught up in the moment and my emotions, and I just - I never met anyone like you, Kayla.
- I can't do this.
Do what? This Us - Kayla - No, I don't know what I was expecting from this, but we moved too fast, and I'm-I'm not me right now.
My mom just died, and this is the last thing that I should be doing.
Yeah, I need to stop running.
How are you running? You know it's what I do.
I run.
And this is just one more way of me not dealing with my life.
And I-I need to figure this shit out.
Figure what out? Everything.
Like the stuff with my dad.
I The It's all screwed up right now, and I just, I need some time to breathe, on my own.
[QUIETLY]: Please.
Please, don't don't push me away.
Nick, you are amazing, but I can't do this anymore.
I'm sorry.
There, in the living room.
[GASPS] [CREAKING] [PANTING] [SCREAMS] Who is that? Motherfucker.
Don't go out there.
Hey! [ENGINE STARTS] Fuck you.

JORDAN [OVER PHONE]: I know you're in there.
You need to stop this shit.
Tell me the name of the third pig.
No one was supposed to die.
Your girl was an accident.
