The Chi (2018) s04e10 Episode Script

A Raisin in the Sun

Have you seen the paper? Hmm?
We lost the bid.
- So the fuck what?
- If you wanna protect
your community from someone,
it should be him.
I got more important shit to
worry about than my homework.
Like what?
Like where I'm gonna live.
Thank you.
You got a new nigga, don't you?
You don't know my life.
- Who is he?
- We work together.
All right, I knew it. I knew it.
At least he got a job.
Think I made a mistake.
I cheated on Dre.
Have you told her?
Now, what the fuck are you doin'?
Come on. The fuck you on, bro?
Jake. Jake, it's not
what it look like, bro.
Look, Jake Jake!
What's wrong?
Let that motherfucker die.
Thanks for comin', man.
I told you I always had your back.
Hey, man, don't that
muh'fucker work for the mayor?
He also happens to be the father
of the girl Jake stole from Kev.
Man, this shit too much.
You need to either
forgive me or move on.
But I'm not down for this limbo shit.
I can't take it anymore.
How the hell you gonna
be the one that cheated
but yet you gonna give me a ultimatum?
I just wanna get us
back to where we were.
Well, that's not gonna happen.
We're never gonna be what we were.
Shit is different now.
I'll do whatever I have
to do to get us back.
I'm good.
Hey, you.
- What's wrong?
- I gotta go home.
Can I at least walk you out?
I can find the door.
- What you lookin' for?
- My other shoe!
- Will you let me walk you out?
- No!
I'm not like your last girl.
I don't need no hand holdin'.
Last night was amazing.
We ain't do nothin'.
I like it when we can enjoy each other
and not have to do anything.
Oh, I gotta go.
If my dad wakes up and I'm
not home, he's gonna kill me.
Ain't no way I'ma get you
back in time before he wake up.
You might as well just stay with me,
and we can have breakfast and shit.
You okay?
Oh hey.
Don't "Oh, hey," me!
What the hell are you doin' here?
It's my fault.
You wanna explain this, Kev?
we were we were just ha.
- You know
- What?
W what were y'all just doin', Kev?
Ooh, you lucky that you ran
into me and not your mother.
You're my mom too.
Kev, don't try to sweet talk me.
- I'm not!
- Kevin.
I love you, but right now,
I need you to head
upstairs and go to your room
- while I handle this.
- But Dre
I'll deal wit' you later.
What are you doin' here?
I needed somewhere to stay.
Somethin' happen at home?
Yeah, I heard about that shootin'.
It was only a matter of time.
So where's your brother?
- I don't know.
- Well, is he comin' home?
Not unless he wanna go to jail.
Well, what's goin' on with Cherry?
We got into it, and she said
she don't want me to live there no more.
I got kicked out when
I was your age too.
So what'd you do?
I had to find a family somewhere else.
Is that what I'm gonna have to do?
Come on.
- Hey, Imani.
- Hey, babe.
Shaad got somethin' he wanna say.
I just wanted to say, uh
I just wanted to say thank you for
throwin' my surprise welcome home party.
Meant a lot.
You're welcome.
That's it?
What else am I supposed to say?
I didn't hear a word of apology
come outta your mouth.
Damn! You can't meet a nigga halfway?
No, I can't.
I mean what else am I supposed to do?
You need to educate yourself.
And stop lookin' down on people.
Aw, shit, I done time before,
so I can't look down on nobody.
So, you know.
You thought you was better than me.
I'm sorry.
Damn it, I'm sorry! I
mean, we straight now?
But it's a start.
We need to get labels
printed for the new strain.
Okay. I'ma send it to you now.
- What's up, T?
- All right, bye.
- You hungry?
- I don't know if I want pizza this early.
Ah, suit yourself.
Put that thing right
there. Look at that.
It do smell good.
Look, either you join me or watch me.
It's your choice. Ah! Ha ha.
A'ight, get one.
You ain't got no napkins?
We don't need no napkin, girl.
We in the hood. Hold up, hold up ah.
Oh, shit.
That's some good-ass pizza.
What would you think if I left Emmett?
Why would you do that?
To be wit' your ass.
We act like a couple anyway.
No, we don't.
We act like fuck buddies
who don't hate each other.
I like what we got.
And what's that?
I'm yo' nigga.
Yeah, I'm the nigga you call
when yo' nigga's trippin'.
I'm the nigga you call
when your girl get locked up
over some bullshit and
you need money in a pinch.
I'm the nigga who you call
when your son barber cancel on him
and he need a haircut real quick.
I'm yo' nigga, Tiff.
Not yo' husband.
That make sense?
Mm. Yeah.
- Hey, y'all.
- Hey.
- You look cute.
- Thank you.
What y'all lookin' all like that for?
Like what?
Uh, look lookin' all guilty and shit.
Y'all behaved y'all self last night?
He was a perfect gentleman.
He better be.
- Y'all hungry?
- Always.
Awesome, I just made
some scrambled eggs.
- So where y'all go?
- Yeah, we went to
- a hotel downtown.
- Wasn't there, like, a party
- or something down there?
- Shh! Shh.
is in critical condition.
He was admitted early this morning
with multiple wounds to the head.
There is speculation
that this may have something to do
with Mayor Perry's decision
to defund the police.
But right now, there are
more questions than answers.
I can take you to the hospital.
No. I got it.
Ladies and gentlemen, Mayor Perry.
Good afternoon.
Everybody said that it couldn't be done,
but I did it anyway.
At the time, they called it arrogant.
You know what I call it?
Do you have a comment
on Marcus St. John?
All I can say is that I, um,
I pray for his speedy recovery.
Do you have any idea who's responsible?
Well, right now, we
don't have all the facts,
and we're, um, we're looking into it.
You know, this is an historic day
for the city of Chicago,
and I think what Marcus would want
is for all of us to collectively
celebrate in this achievement.
And who better to do
that with than Ms
Ms. Tracy Roxboro? Tracy.
Thank you, Mayor Perry.
I am excited to announce that
with this landmark legislation,
we will be able to fully fund
community protection efforts.
Like the signs that decorate
lawns throughout the city say:
We are what we need.
My hope is to one day
completely abolish the police,
and reallocating a
portion of their resources
is a great way to start.
The people of Chicago
don't need policing.
They need protection from the police.
Today is a new beginning.
Thank you.
- Whassup?
- Hey.
Tiff, I'm sick of this shit.
Who you wanna be with?
Me or Dante?
I can't do this wit'
you right now, Emmett.
You ain't got no choice.
I don't know.
I'm movin' out.
Are you serious?
I'm sick of this shit.
If you want Dante, you can have his ass.
Ain't there no elevator?
We gon' have to get
you a lift or something.
- Yeah!
- Whoo!
Thank you.
- Yeah!
- Okay, thank you.
No, listen, I just wanna thank you
for all of your hard work.
Honestly, we could not have done this
without each and every one of you,
and thanks to Mayor Perry.
No, a-and-and the great work
that you've all been doing.
We finally got the funding we need
to expand throughout the city, y'all.
To celebrate, we are
throwin' a block party,
so tell all your friends to come out,
get some free food,
but let's also get them to
sign up for volunteering.
We want everybody to have a good time,
but it's about getting them involved.
And great work, honestly. Great work!
We did it, y'all.
Chi Town!
You better pray that motherfucker dies.
Actually, I'm prayin' that he lives.
Hey. He gon' make it?
They don't know.
Hey, Jemma.
Look, we, um
Hey, hey, hey.
- You okay?
- I'm scared.
Look, everything's gonna be all right.
What if it's not?
Look, your father's
stronger than you think.
He's all I have.
Come on.
Hey. Whassup?
I can look out for myself.
Yeah, I used to think the same thing.
We ain't the same.
No, we're not. I'm older than you.
- A lot older.
- Yeah, and I still look good.
Come here.
Look, when I was your age
I lost both of my
parents in a car accident,
and I had to go and stay
with my grandparents,
and they were real
old-school, real old-fashioned.
They didn't like the way I talked,
they didn't like the way I dressed.
They thought I was an embarrassment.
And one day, they just decided
they didn't want nothin' to do with me.
So what you do?
Started lookin' out for myself.
Where'd you stay at?
My friends' couches.
Shit, sometimes I slept on the street.
It's why I do what I do now.
It's why I can't just
walk by a homeless person
without lookin' 'em in the eye
and acknowledgin' their presence.
'Cause it could be any one of us.
- You survived; so can I.
- Yeah, but I don't want you to just survive.
I want you to live.
Would you consider movin'
in with me and my family?
Don't you already have a full house?
Yeah, but it would only be temporary.
I appreciate you takin' the time
to talk to me and everything,
but I'll figure it out.
It's not your job to figure it out.
It's not yours either.
Will you at least think about it?
Cool. Mm.
We gotta find out who did this.
Don't worry about that right now.
My dad has cameras all over that house.
One of them had to catch somethin'.
I shoulda pulled a card
first, but I feel so confident.
Oh, is that's how you feel?
Well, good, I like that.
I like your confidence,
'cause my confidence right here
looks like sevens!
- Yo bitch ass.
- Mm-hmm.
Man, you know what?
That nigga Meldrick he
still owe me money, man.
Man, that's a old debt.
I don't give a fuck
how old that shit is.
Nigga, I'm broker than what I should be
'cause this nigga's still
got my money in his pocket.
Tch! Bring his goofy ass in here.
He wanna get pulled over in
one of the cars that we stole.
Then go fuck around and try to
pull me in that shit too man.
It's a good thing I was a minor.
That was the only reason
why they let me go.
Nigga, you been doin' dirty
as long as I known you.
You eat what you kill.
Yeah, well
I'm tired of havin' to
kill just so I can eat.
Aren't we all?
Where that punk-ass
nigga Meldrick at anyway?
He's gone.
What you mean, he gone?
What, he locked up in
the pen or some shit?
Um no, he
a car hit him and kept goin'.
Fuckin' ambulance took too long.
He died before they got to the hospital.
You for real?
I I thought somebody woulda told you.
You a'ight?
Yeah, man.
Grew up with that nigga, man.
I know.
I mean, there was one time, summertime.
We was kids.
There was this, uh
this ice cream truck
we was chasin' down a block.
I ain't had no money.
I was finna rob that muh'fucker.
But then Meldrick, he stopped me, he
He like, "Man "
" don't rob the ice cream man."
"I got you."
He did, too.
He bought everybody
on the block somethin'.
He got us whatever we wanted.
I remember he, uh
he pulled out this
big-ass wad of cash,
know what I'm sayin'?
I knew that shit was drug money.
I ain't care, though.
That's the first time anybody
ever did anything for me
without wantin' somethin' in return.
Nigga looked out for me, though.
You know what I'm sayin'?
I don't know, you know.
If he was here
I'd tell him how much I love him.
I will miss that
stupid-ass laugh he had.
You remember that?
He was goofy as fuck, wasn't he?
Yeah, he was.
My nigga, though.
He in heaven now.
Yeah, he is, ain't he?
God rest his soul.
- Amen.
- Hey, I'ma tell you,
like this too you ain't
finna take advantage of me
'cause I'm emotional, nigga.
When I'm emotional, I play even better.
I was hopin' the
tears'd blur your vision
- so you couldn't see that
- Shut up, bitch.
Hey, cut it off. My doctor.
Cut off the vacuum. It's my doctor.
Okay. Thank you.
Well, what'd he say?
He said that my last test
results look really good
and that if things stay like this,
I could avoid another round of chemo.
For real?
For real?
- Whoa!
- Yes, yes, yes.
- Mmm.
- Mm.
I ain't felt this good in a long time.
Me too, me too.
We gotta celebrate this shit.
We gotta celebrate. We
gotta celebrate this shit.
What? What're you who you callin'?
So silly.
Uh, yo!
Yeah, I told you the alkaline dye work.
Hold up!
Hold up.
Let me tell you something
'fore you look at that.
When I came back to get my bag
The house wasn't empty.
I saw your dad layin' on
the floor bleedin', and
Douda was there and Trig
was tryin' to help him.
How are you just now tellin' me this?
I'm the one that told Trig
to save your daddy life.
- Why wouldn't you tell me?
- I ain't know what to do.
You coulda told me the truth!
Tellin' you the truth
wasn't gonna change shit.
I at least woulda know he was hurt.
I at least coulda checked up on him.
Look, I'm sorry, just
just don't tell nobody, a'ight?
Are you serious?
Look, if you tell somebody,
then my brother gonna go to jail.
And if he do, I don't know
what's gonna happen to me.
If it wasn't for your brother,
my dad wouldn't be fightin'
for his life right now.
No, if it wasn't for my brother,
your daddy'd be dead.
Thinkin' about you a lot.
You stay thinkin' about me.
- Thinkin' about me too?
- Yeah, like a brother.
I'm not your brother.
If I move in wit' your
family, you will be.
Dre asked me to come stay with y'all.
- She did?
- Yep.
That make you like my live-in
girlfriend or somethin'?
Hell no, I like my
freedom too much for that.
Wow, so you just gonna live
with me and see other people.
I don't know if I wanna
live with y'all yet.
Well, I don't know if I
wanna live wit' you either.
It ain't up to you, boo.
Yesterday, my roommate asked me
if you were my girlfriend.
What'd you say?
I said I don't know.
And I didn't like that feeling.
So I decided to do something about it.
I hand-picked you these flowers
and I wrote you this note.
Do you have a pen?
Mm. Mm-hmm.
Thank you.
For what?
For makin' me feel good again.
Oh, corny boys tend to have that effect.
Shut up.
Tunk, nigga!
Hold on, bro, that's some bullshit.
- You can't hold the spread.
- Hey, man, it's my spread.
I can do whatever I
want to with that bitch.
No, bruh, see, that's
why I don't even wanna
play with your ass, man.
You always cheatin' and shit.
I told Jemma.
You told Jemma what?
Oh, this nigga snitchin'?
Man, they got cameras!
- She was gonna find out anyway.
- Hold up, hold up, hold up.
Everybody calm down. Calm down.
- Sit down, bro.
- I ain't no motherfuckin' dog.
Man, sit your ass down!
Look, you did the right thing.
Let me tell you somethin', man.
If the police find out what you did,
your ass is goin' straight to the pen.
And that's the last
thing this family needs
another motherfucker gettin' locked up.
I'm glad you told
Jemma the truth I am.
I also told her you the
reason her dad's still alive.
Oh, nigga, you don't get
no brownie points for that!
And I told her not to tell!
- That don't mean shit!
- Hey, man, shut the fuck up.
Look, I'm sorry.
Yeah, you should be.
I just don't want nothin'
bad to happen to you.
Look, bro, I'm old news, okay?
You're the future of this family.
I just need you to be better than me.
And by any means, be better
than that motherfucker
over there, please?
Can you do that?
- Yeah.
- Hold on.
Niggas over there talkin' shit?
Yeah, fool. Fucking crazy.
So what happens now?
we just gotta lay low for a bit.
Real low.
Are you soulless or just numb?
- Look
- And don't try to charm me
right now I'm not in the mood.
Are you the reason Marcus
is in the hospital right now?
Absolutely not.
He is a trusted colleague.
I respect him and what
he brings to the table.
if we're gonna do this,
you're gonna have to believe in me.
- I'm sorry, I just
- Apology accepted.
You know, niggas are always
gonna have somethin' to say.
But the second you buy into it
is the second I can't trust you.
Of course you can trust me.
I believe in you.
I think I'm fallin' in love with you.
I said I think I'm
fallin' in love with you.
What do you mean, "think"?
I know I am.
You gonna invite me in?
You gonna call the police on my brother?
That's what I came here to talk about.
Hey, who at the door?
What's up?
I have the footage of
what happened to my father,
but I can't bring myself to watch it.
Who else has seen it?
No one.
But I know we got it,
'cause there's a camera
pointing at the spot
where his blood is still
seeping into the floor.
You here to blackmail me?
I came here to free you.
You don't have to worry
about anyone else seein' this footage.
The hospital called this morning
and they said my dad's gonna live.
And I know that's in
large part because of you.
I'm grateful that you
made sure he survived.
I don't know who I would
be if he wasn't here.
You hear that, Jake?
We need to be here to help guide y'all.
I know what it's like not to have that.
It's why I think I was lost for so long.
Hey, um
look, I'm
I'm sorry for what
happened to your father.
Really, and I am, uh
I'm glad he's still here.
Me too.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Where you goin'?
To the hospital.
I can come wit' you.
Yeah, he can go.
tense percussive music
Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.
Come on, motherfucker.
You keep my daughter's name
outta your mouth, you hear me ooh
We need to talk, playboy.
Who the fuck you think you talkin' to?
- She got you on tape, nigga.
- Who?
Marcus's daughter.
- Well, I'll talk to her.
- Already did that.
Is that right?
She's forgiven me for your sins.
She still got the footage?
No. I do.
Oh. Okay.
So now you the big man on campus, huh?
You think you Batman or
some motherfuckin' body, huh?
How much you want for it?
You should know me better than that.
What do you want?
I want you to leave and never come back.
And where am I supposed to go?
I don't care where you go.
Just get the fuck outta here.
You're not the type
a leadership we need.
Okay, well, I might not be
perfect, but I'm all you got.
Not anymore.
You know I got the
power to lock you up
pull Imani's permit,
make sure Shaad or Sharaad or
whatever the fuck his name is
violates his parole and
get Jake kicked outta school
with a single phone call.
Motherfucker, I can snap my finger,
and your whole fuckin' family
Get the fuck out of here.
You must be scared.
Well, check this out.
You can either leave quietly,
or I'ma make sure this
footage is all over the news
first thing tomorrow mornin'.
Got it?
Oh, and tell Tracy I said what's up.
quiet bluesy melody
Come on, Ma.
I got you.
This is not funny. Where are we going?
No, I know, I got you.
Couple steps. Just a
couple. Like, two more.
I don't wanna take no more steps.
- Two more, two more steps.
- Are you sure
I gotcha.
All right, right
right here, right here.
We just wanted to give you your flowers
and celebrate you while you're here.
We don't know what we
would do without you.
- And by we, you mean you.
- Come on.
Come here.
- I love you.
- Oh, I love you too.
I'm grateful you're okay.
Mmm. Me too.
I love you all so much.
Thank you, thank you.
Well, I, for one, am grateful for you
puttin' up with me and my earpiece
all these years.
I'm just glad the beeper's gone.
Talkin' about? Still hangin' on to that.
- Oh.
- It might make a comeback.
- It won't, Darnell!
- No!
- It won't.
- You never know.
Come on, y'all, let's celebrate.
- Yay!
- Party!
- You want a drink?
- How you feelin'?
I can't believe you lied to me.
I'm a politician. What do you expect?
I expected more from you.
Why does everybody
expect me to be perfect?
I'm doin' the best I can,
and it never is enough.
Yeah, well, I thought you loved me.
Tracy, listen
I think you're a warrior.
I've never met anyone as strong as you.
And I also wanted to
shine a light on someone
that our community often ignores.
I'm not one of your constituents.
You ain't gotta try to
convince me of anything.
Baby, listen to me. Tracy,
I just want you to know
that when I was with you,
it's the first time in my life
that I ever felt like I was at peace.
Me too.
But you still need to leave.
For what?
I ain't scared of Trig.
But you should be.
He ain't playin'. He
will release that footage.
And all the good you've
done'll just be forgotten.
When your name comes up, all
people are gonna think about
is crime and corruption.
Is that what you want?
After all I put you through, you
still worried about my legacy.
This ain't about protecting your legacy.
It's about protecting mine.
If that tape gets out, all your dirt
is gonna spill over on my
name and my organization.
If you get caught, I don't need the IRS
sniffin' around my paperwork.
I understand.
Hey, I just want you to know
I never meant to hurt you.
But you did.
Tracy Tracy
I-I'm gonna miss you.
I'm sure you will.
So you must be the young prince
that's sweepin' my girl off her feet.
First of all, you married.
That don't change our past, though.
You must be Emmett.
The one and only.
I like him.
Oh, you ain't got no choice,
bro I'm 'bout to be
your new best friend. You smoke?
Uh, every now and then.
- Really, nigga?
- Yeah, weed makes me sleepy.
Aw, come on, man, you just
ain't had the right strain yet.
It's cool look, I
got some shit at my crib.
Look, I can give you a discount
Why you always hustlin'?
What? Money make the world go round.
That's what this capitalist
society would have you believe.
Nigga, what?
Money isn't everything.
Where you get this hippie from, Kiesha?
You from the North Side?
No! I can't afford to live up there.
Yeah, leave him alone.
You want something to drink?
- Yeah, I'll take some water.
- I'll take a fruit punch.
All right, you can get that yourself.
- "You can get that yourself."
- Stop.
He's kinda weird.
I know, but he treats me like a queen.
Well, you deserve that.
Just gotta feel him out
a little more, that's all.
I been feelin' him out.
Oh, so you don't need me no more.
I didn't say that.
I'ma always have your back.
I know.
Just know.
Pardon me.
Hey, uh, wanna go somewhere and talk?
Look, um
you remember the girl
that I told you about?
The one who was livin'
with her older brother?
I think so. Why?
Look, I know we ain't good yet,
but this girl can't wait for
us to figure our shit out.
With your blessin'
I want her to move in with us.
the last thing we need in that house
is another mouth to feed.
We can barely keep up with
the two kids we've already got.
And now we got a new grandbaby.
How we gonna talk about
helpin' the community,
and we can't even
take in one of our own?
'Cause it's not our problem.
She's not anybody's problem.
She's a girl who doesn't have
anybody lookin' out for her.
Look, I used to be that little girl.
And the fact that I'm
still here is a miracle.
I don't wanna see her
slip through the cracks.
How long does she need to stay with us?
Till I find a foster family I can trust.
You don't trust anyone.
I'm thorough because I care.
That's what I love about you.
You treat everybody like they're family.
if our marriage is not intact,
these kids are gonna
grow up off balance.
I know.
Look, I'm down to do
the work if you are.
I am.
Don't leave me lonely ♪

Nigga, you ain't funny.
Come here.

My bad.
Uh, thanks again for your hospitality.

We got you.
Wow, I love my city.
And I'm proud to be from Chicago.
And I think when people
think about my city
they often think
about the bad things.
But the truth is,
there's a lotta good here.
We love each other.
Man, this city has never let me down.
The city of Chicago
can never be destroyed.
The people of Chicago
can never be broken.
We always rise above the obstacles
placed in front of us,
because we are what we need.
Thank you, as always,
for listenin' to Papa's Pulpit.
This platform has really become
a sanctuary for me.
I hope it's been a
safe space for you too.
So let's keep this conversation goin'
because even though
we've come a long way,
we still got a long way to go.
So let's get there together.
Until next time,
I love y'all, and I'll see you around.
