The Client List s01e02 Episode Script

Turn the Page

Previously on The Client List I don't think you understand how big a mess we're in.
My disability checks are barely covering our bills, much less all of this.
Things are gonna get good again.
I've got some really promising leads.
I got the most awesome job at this spa in Sugar Land.
Isn't that like an hour away? Oh, trust me, honey.
It's so worth it.
Tips are great.
You can tell them I sent you if you really need a job.
If Selena thinks you'll fit in here, that's good enough for me.
I got the job.
You hear that, kids? Mommy is the official new breadwinner.
Hey.
Riley.
I'm Dee Ann.
Oh.
This is Jolene.
I'm Kendra.
So, you excited about your first day? Yeah.
Having some issues with your shoulder? My hips and legs are a little tight, too.
Okay.
I can take care of that.
Nice.
Hey! You didn't think it was important to tell me that the guys here expect extras? is legit.
I have a client list for guys who like something extra.
Kyle left me, and I have no idea if he's ever coming back.
I am fighting tooth and nail to provide for my family after your brother walking out on me! Settle down.
It might be time to let the house go.
Their daddy's gone.
I can't take their house away, too.
I need to make more money here.
Get me one of the guys on the list.
You're real sweet.
So are you.
You sound surprised.
This is just not what I expected.
I think you're a lot stronger than anyone ever knew.
Thank you.
Oh, my God.
It's Kyle.
Hello? [ Bitter:Sweet's "Get What I Want" plays ] # Hold the door # # while I let myself in # # I'm tired, boy # # need a drink, need a man # Man, I wish every day was linen day.
Seriously.
I could get behind that.
Mm, I can get on top of it.
Control yourself, Dee Ann.
I have my clothes on don't I? Morning, y'all.
Oh.
Wow.
I don't know if he's so hot because he's gorgeous or because he can actually do laundry.
Nick I need some extra linens in my massage room.
Selena, that's enough.
Nick is not your trained pony.
Haven't seen you all morning.
How's it holding up? Fine.
Good.
Still haven't heard back from your man, huh? I just don't get it.
I mean, my husband leaves me a month ago, and then, out of the blue, he just calls me on my cell, doesn't say anything? And you can't stop thinking about it, am I right? I tried Kyle's cell this morning.
It's disconnected.
You know, you need to get your mind off of all of this.
I'm gonna take you out for drinks tonight.
Who's up for Friday-night margaritas?! I'm in! Whoo-hoo! Georgia, no.
I'm down with that.
Long as you're buying.
That's sweet, girls, but I can't.
"No" is not an option.
Now, go on, get ready.
Your client, "The Camel," is here.
The who? So, how are you? Me? Really good.
Thanks.
And you? Amazing now that I'm here.
That you don't visit us very often, T.
J.
Can we take it extra slow? Kind of want to draw it out.
Sure.
Like this? Mm.
It's been a while.
Any particular reason? I work six-month shifts in an offshore rig in the Gulf.
Not a lot of women out there, at least none that I'm interested in.
Wow.
Six months with no sex.
That's got to be rough.
Why do you think I come in here every day for a week straight before I go back out to the rig? That's why They call me The Camel, yeah.
Because I can go so long without.
Well, when your back, I'm sure you must have women in your life, right? Cute guy like yourself.
I'd rather not get into that.
Okay.
Well, let's start with your shoulders, then.
Original Air Date on April 15, 2012 Mama! Hey, you're home.
I was just on my way out.
I got this thing at the church tonight.
I need you to babysit.
I told you I have to meet friends from work.
I got Lacey to fill in.
Mama, Lacey does enough.
I asked you.
And I asked Lacey.
Asked, commanded.
But why split hairs? She's teasing.
Like I have anything else to do.
Dale's on another run to Utah.
Thought husbands and wives were supposed to live in the same time zone.
Sorry.
My bad.
No worries.
You're the best.
But you already know that.
Actually, I do.
So, how was work? Good.
Fine.
Okay.
Geez.
Could you be any more vague? Because we were thinking that we could come over one afternoon, have a spa day -- get mani-pedis, a massage.
Always wanted to try one of those seafood wrap thingies.
Seaweed.
What seaweed? Yeah, we don't -- we don't do any of that fancy stuff, so What's gotten into you? I thought you were all hopped up about this job.
What do you want me to say about it? I mean, it's work, and I'm thankful to have it right now.
And -- hey, what is this -- this church thing that you're rushing off to? Oh, that's just, you know, prayers and s-stuff.
Really? Now who's being vague? Look at the time.
Can't be late for the Lord! Night, girls.
Night! Night! Mm.
Aw, honey.
You've gone through all of his stuff a hundred times.
I know, but I forgot about this box.
It was in the back of the closet, and I'm just hoping maybe there's something in here that'll tell me where he is, like a clue, a hint, anything.
Quit beating yourself up.
You've done everything you possibly could.
Have I? Riley, come on.
It has been a month since Kyle walked out.
Honey You've got to get a grip.
Here, let's put this stuff in the garage.
Okay.
Okay, kiddos, mom wants y'all to listen to Lacey while I'm gone.
No! Stay here! Don't go! Trust me -- I'd rather stay here with the two of you, but I have to show some face time with people from work.
I thought you already went today.
What's fake time? Oh.
"Face" time.
And this is extra work.
And face time is where you show your face so that people know you're there.
I wish daddy would show us some face time.
I know, pumpkin.
Me too.
Hey, why don't you go brush your teeth? And you put on your jammies.
Travis, you know what? This thing is gonna give out on you if you keep wearing it every day.
I like it.
It smells like daddy.
I know, baby.
All right, you can put it back on after you get in your jammies.
Okay.
Okay.
Lace Look what I found in Kyle's U.
T.
Jacket.
Who's Max? I have no idea.
But maybe he's the answer to my prayers.
Maybe he knows where Kyle is.
Well? Voicemail.
What's wrong? Why didn't you leave a message? Apparently, "Max" is Maxine.
If you could just call me back or text me, whatever, it's real important that I talk to you tonight.
Thanks.
Too intense? Leaving three numbers and your e-mail might have been a bit much.
I just don't want to give her an excuse not to call me back.
Is this why he left me? For another woman? You are borrowing trouble like nobody's business.
You have to stop.
It's not that easy.
Well, how about I open up a bottle of wine and we wait for her to call back? I wish I could, Lace.
But I have this work thing, and Honestly, I'm just gonna go crazy sitting around here waiting for the phone to ring.
Great.
So I'll just sit and wait for it to ring by myself.
What kind of work thing happens at 8:30 at night? It's just drinks with the girls.
The owner wants to take us all out.
And I'm sure it's gonna be really boring.
That's fine.
You don't have to invite me to everything.
I always invite you, but who's counting? Lace.
I'm teasing.
Seriously, the minute Maxine calls, I'll let you know.
And if she calls your cell, you'll call me, right? Of course.
Hey, do you TiVo "America's Most Wanted"? I am telling you -- so addictive.
I got to go get dressed, but, hey Don't erase anything off there.
Yes, mom.
# God fearin', good-lookin' # # southern gentleman # # God fearin', good-lookin' # Okay, girls, those two over there.
Baby face in the stetson or button-down salt-and-pepper? Ooh, salt-and-pepper, hands down.
I'll take experience over enthusiasm any day.
Mm, please.
Baby face has got those soulful eyes.
Are you expecting an important call? Oh, no.
No, I'm sorry.
Just checking on my kids.
And how about you, Riley? You more of a face or a body girl? Mm.
Face, I guess.
Mm, I told you all.
Kyle's smokin' hot.
Sometimes he'd pick up Riley after work in -- Selena, we're here to get Riley's mind off her man troubles, not rub her nose in 'em.
It's okay.
She's right.
Kyle has a great ass, too.
See? "Had" a greatass.
I don't really know how I'm supposed to talk about him anymore.
Well, we all have a few of those.
You can't give up, then! My affirmation of the day was, "The answer lies within your reach.
It's up to you to move toward it.
" Ohmmmmm.
Come on.
Really? You said he reached out to you.
Mm-hmm.
There must be a reason.
If something ever happened with me and Bobby, I wouldn't -- Okay, you know what, girls? Tonight is about fun, right? Yes.
Perfect timing.
Ahh.
Please.
Thank you.
I know that I'm the new girl around here, but don't you think that our uniforms need a little updatin'? What do you think? Georgia, you ready for a little change? Well, you know what I always say, honey.
If we don't change anything, nothing changes.
Ha ha! - All right! - Cheers! All right.
Drink some more of that.
Hey, that was good! # Southern gentleman # No, Jolene.
We are not singing Coldplay.
There's a difference between bringing the house down and bringing everybody down.
Let's just sing "Jolene.
" Ahh.
How about Beyoncé? Cutie with the Rolex over there needs to see this single lady shake her thang.
Whoo-ooh! Our next singers up are Georgia's girls.
Oh.
Oh, y'all, we got to decide.
Let Riley pick.
It's her night.
Anything calling out to you? Maxine.
It's Lacey, Riley's friend.
Maxine, it's Lacey.
I'm sorry to bother you again.
'cause it sounded like your machine cut me off last time.
I just want to make extra sure that you got this message so you can call me back to talk about the whole Kyle -- [ "Before He Cheats" plays ] # Right now, she's probably up singin' # # some white-trash version of Shania karaoke # # right now, she's probably sayin', "I'm drunk" # # and he's a-thinkin' that he's gonna get lucky # # right now # # he's probably dabbin' on three dollars' worth # # of that bathroom polo # # and he don't know # # that I dug my key into the side # # of his pretty, little, souped-up four-wheel-drive # # I carved my name into his leather seats # # I might've saved a little trouble for the next girl # # for the next girl # # 'cause the next time that he cheats # # next time that he cheats # # oh, you know it won't be on me # # Oh, no, not on me # # not on you, not on you # # I dug my key into the side # # of his pretty, little, souped-up four-wheel-drive # # carved my name into his leather seats # # oh, maybe next time, he'll think # # before he cheats # Come on, y'all, yo! # Next time # # oh, no # Yes, girl! Ohh! What are you doing here? Uh, driving you home.
Thank you so much for coming.
You were first on Riley's speed dial.
Lucky me, huh? You must be Riley's boss.
Georgia Cummings.
So sorry to bother you, but she is in no condition to drive herself home.
Hey, "home"? The girls and I are singing "Proud Mary," right? Whoo! Oh, Evan, you can sing, too.
Isn't he cute, y'all? He's Kyle's baby brother.
And you said Kyle was hot? I'm so far, I got a look at the newer model.
You should stop by the spa sometime.
I'll give you the friends-and-family discount.
Oh, you know what? Um, we should probably go.
I-I'm sung-out anyway.
You know, I-I don't mind sticking around.
Ooh, now we're talking.
Okay, good night, y'all.
No! Bye.
He's cute.
Ooh.
Lacey, I'm home.
Don't go so fast.
Oh.
Ugh! Oh! - Oh, my purse.
- Ooh.
Ooh.
There we go.
Oh, my Lord.
It's hot in here.
Oh, you know, no, let's -- let's keep that on.
You are such a party pooper.
Yeah, that's me.
Oh, I had such a good time tonight.
God, it's hot in here.
Can we just please take this off?! Oh, God.
Just take it off.
You know what? Let's -- let's get you up here.
Hey, do you know where my phone is? Because I need to plug it in.
I'm waiting for a very important call.
Hey.
I can't feel my lips.
Are you okay? My lips -- they're Beautiful.
Mm.
What did you drink last night? What didn't I? Oh, I am so embarrassed.
My boss had to call Evan to bring me home.
Ooh.
Well, did you have fun at least? I did.
Good.
At least I think did.
Oh, then I woke up, and it all came flooding back -- Kyle and Maxine and the fact that she's never even gonna call me back.
Well, maybe she didn't get your Uh-oh.
"Uh-oh" what? Nothing.
No.
Lacey, I know that "uh-oh.
" And you are lucky that my head hurts too bad to pry it out of you, because you and I both know that I eventually will.
So why don't you just stop the pain and spit it out? It's no big deal.
I just may have, um called Maxine a couple times.
No.
Lacey, what were you thinking? Well, you didn't talk to her, right? Did you?! Well, not exactly to her.
Oh, no, no.
Please tell me that you didn't leave messages.
You did.
Just -- just a few, maybe.
How many is a few? Six Seven Lacey! okay, eight.
I don't even want to know what you said.
You want some more coffee? Hey, Mike.
Yeah? Take a look at this retaining wall.
Hold on a second.
Right.
Yeah.
Not a problem.
Well, look what the cat dragged in.
I'm already mortified.
Please don't make it worse.
Oh, you were just blowing off some steam.
Lord knows you deserve to.
I hope I'm not interrupting.
Nah, I'm the foreman on this job, which pretty much means I just babysit a bunch of apes all day long.
Oh.
No wonder you're always so good with the kids.
Ha ha.
Nothing says "sorry" like pulled pork and potato salad from the Smokehouse.
I don't know.
A real "sorry" might have meant you brought some of Jemma's peach cobbler.
Oh, well, then, I guess I'm real sorry, 'cause there's two orders in here.
Oh, I hope I didn't embarrass myself too badly.
You were the perfect lady.
Co-workers, not much.
Maybe I should stop by that spa sometime.
Some of those girls you work with seem like a whole lot of fun.
Oh, I'm sure that was just the alcohol.
Well, I'll bring a six-pack, then.
Hey, did, um did Kyle ever mention a woman by the name of Maxine to you? Maxine? No.
Why? No reason.
Never mind.
Uh, delivery for Linette Montgomery.
I'm Linette.
Those are for me? Mm-hmm.
Thank you.
Ooh.
Fancy.
Who are they from? Nobody.
Just a friend.
Friends send text messages.
Let me see.
No! I don't want to jinx it after all the bad luck I've had.
And don't you dare say a word to Riley about this.
She's got enough on her plate these days to have to worry about my love life, too.
Yeah.
Hey girl.
Is this your coupon book? I found it on the counter.
Oh, it was a tip from yesterday.
Is that normal around here? Mrs.
Andrews -- we give her to all the newbies.
Oh, thanks.
I had a straight deep-tissue the other day.
Guy gave me a poem.
I love a man who's literary.
So cruise the library.
Okay, y'all, what do you think? Right? Kind of sexy.
Might get us bigger tips.
Someone's an overachiever.
You see, I'm trying to distract myself from the whole Kyle drama.
Keeping busy's a good thing.
Hey, Nick What do you think? I like the old one.
And she likes you! What does he know? He's a guy.
You kidding? Bobby freaks out if my shoes don't match my outfit.
You sure he's batting for our team? Oh, trust me -- I'm sure.
No man tells me what to wear.
I know this cute, little package is all that and a bag of chips.
Besides, what do I care if Bobby wants to pick out my clothes? It makes him happy.
Isn't that what love's all about? Oh, here she goes again.
No, seriously, guys.
There's this website called Second Chances.
You could post a message on it to Kyle.
Maybe he'll see it.
Kendra, can you do me a favor? FedEx truck just pulled up.
Can you go sign for me? Oh.
The girl means well.
What's all this? New uniforms maybe? Could be.
Meanwhile, The Camel is back, and from the look on his face he's thirsty.
I have a surprise for you.
Part one is in my bag over there, and part two I'll be out with in just a minute.
And I think I remember you telling me that you love the smell of the beach.
So I found this great massage oil Tropical Turmoil.
What do you think? Oh.
Not exactly what I had in mind.
Travis.
Who's Travis? He's my son.
I'm so sorry.
He must have just swapped them.
When I'm not here, I'm actually amom.
So, what does dad have to say about all this? Dad's not in the picture anymore.
I guess we're in the same boat.
So there was a girl.
Hmm.
Annie.
We met at an Astros game.
She was sitting two rows behind me.
She caught a pop-up that bounced off the dugout, and I fell in love right then and there.
Now, that's cute.
A couple years later, when I finally got up the courage to pop the question -- my cousin, knows the JumboTron guy, at the park.
I get down on one knee right as the camera gets to us, and what do you think she said? No! Exactly.
It was in every paper.
It made the news for a week straight.
You know what? I think I heard about that.
Never did find out why she turned me down.
Well, why not? Well, she disappeared.
I guess all that attention finally got to her.
Made my decision to take a job out on a oil rig a whole lot easier.
Hey.
What are y'all doing? Lacey just told me about Maxine.
You couldn't tell your own mother about your husband's mistress? I didn't exactly tell her.
More like she dragged it out of me.
Lacey, can't you keep your mouth shut about anything? Hey! I can keep a secret.
Yeah, in circulation.
Look, mama, we don't know anything about this woman for sure, and I didn't want to get you all fired up.
Oh, I'm fired up, all right! Nothing good can come from this.
If you ask me, it's a clear sign from the Lord to move on past this mess.
Who knows how many secrets Kyle had? Okay, this is not making things easier.
In fact, it's kind of making me angry.
Well, it's about time.
Honey, I've dealt with more than my fair share of deceitful men, and I'm not gonna stand by and watch you go through the same pain.
Kyle's gone.
He chose to leave.
Who cares what he did now? I want you to move on and find someone who doesn't lie and cheat Mommy, I really don't want to talk about this He treats you wrong.
I mean, are you even listening to anything that I am saying to you?! Maybe even sends you flowers now and then! You mean like the flowers you got today? Who sent you flowers? Nobody.
I was just speaking hypothetically.
I'm telling you -- you got to forget this Maxine woman.
Trust me on this one.
All right, mama.
Good.
I've got to get to the dry cleaners before they close.
I'll see you later.
I am so sorry.
I didn't mean to say anything.
You know she has this freakish power over me.
So she's chasing after some guy again? Who knows? Probably.
Wow.
Sometimes it is shocking how different we are.
She's already trolling for husband number six, and I haven't even gotten over the fact that my first marriage is ending.
Please, your one marriage lasted longer than all five of hers put together.
I want the truth about Kyle, and I thought Maxine was my final thread.
Now I don't even have that.
Maybe you do.
What's that? It's Maxine's home address.
I did a reverse look-up on her phone number.
You are officially forgiven.
Are we out of our minds? Wouldn't be the first time.
Hey, we can leave if you want to.
No.
Your husband leaves you for another woman, you want to know what she looks like.
I just can't believe we're doing this.
My heart is beating so fast.
That must be her.
That looks like Kyle's old car.
Yeah, the one that he said he sold to that couple in Galveston.
Oh, my God.
That kid is the spitting image of Kyle.
What's the emergency? Why did you tell me that Kyle sold his car to a couple who lives in Galveston? What are you -- what are you talking about? I remember it, just like it was yesterday.
You were sitting right over there, and you said that Kyle was so excited because he had sold his car to a couple who lives in Galveston.
Yeah, well, that's what he told me.
I didn't go down there to sell it with him.
What's this all about? Please tell me that you didn't know he has another family.
Pretty, little blonde? Lives over on Briarcliff behind the Happy Donut? Has a son that looks exactly like Kyle? She's driving his car? Okay, Riley, you're starting to freak me out here.
Now, just slow down a second.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Come on.
Be straight with me, Evan.
Is he shacked up over there right now? Riley, do you honestly think that that's something I would keep from you?! After everything that's happened I honestly don't know what to think anymore.
Riley, look, it's me, okay? Where is all this coming from? I found a note in Kyle's U.
T.
jacket.
It said "Max.
" Max turned out to be Maxine.
Lacey and I tracked her down.
Well, what'd she say? I didn't get a chance to talk to her because she was standing there with her little boy, who looks just like Kyle.
It all got too much, so I just left.
Look, Kyle was a royal jerk for what he did.
One thing I know for sure is he would never cheat on you.
And he sure as hell wouldn't have some secret family.
How can you be so sure? Because he's my brother, damn it! A few months ago, you wouldn't have thought he'd walk out on us, either! Why don't you just admit it, Evan? You don't know Kyle any better than I do.
You know, I got to go.
Deep breath.
One more deep breath before I take it off.
The stones or that sexy outfit you're wearing? The stones, silly.
Do you really have to go back out on that rig? I mean, why would you want to work and live somewhere where there aren't any women you're interested in? Well, 'cause women are complicated.
Ohh.
And men aren't? Not even in the same league.
Look I know that you were really hurt by what Annie did.
Maybe if you got some closure, you could move on.
I told you, she disappeared.
I don't have any way of getting in touch with her.
Maybe you do.
One of the girls that works here -- she told me about this website, Second Chances.
I got to thinking and I did some research and I found Annie.
She's living in New Mexico.
I appreciate your concern.
But that's all in the past.
And that's kind of where I want it to stay.
Oh, hey, honey.
So, I've been thinking -- I want to go with those cute new uniforms you brought in.
That's great, Georgia.
Well, don't have a heart attack about it.
My mind's just on other things.
I just can't seem to get away from bad news.
I think that Kyle might have been having an affair.
Oh, honey, I'm so sorry.
Are you sure? No.
And I don't even know if I want to know.
But my mama just said I should forget about it and move on.
Well, I don't want to disagree with your mama, but you remember when I told you that my ex was cheating on me? Well, what I didn't tell you was I knew right here in my gut months before he left, but I wasn't listening to my own instincts.
I kept believing his mountain of lies.
Well, you want to know a surefire way to nip 'em in the bud? Face the truth.
Wait a minute.
You want me to go and talk to this woman? Oh, hell, yes.
Facing the truth about Jimmy was the first right thing I did for myself, and it felt good.
Honey, you have got to deal with this thing head on and find out the truth about your husband.
That's the only way you're gonna move through this, with strength and dignity.
Knowledge is power, honey.
Don't you ever forget that.
Who are you? Kyle Parks' wife.
I want to know where my husband is.
Why? Something happen to him? He left me a month ago.
I didn't know.
I find that very hard to believe.
Are you in love with him? And is he in love with you? It wasn't like that.
At least not for him.
He always said he was in love with you.
So your son isn't Kyle's? No.
Tommy's daddy died of an overdose.
That's how I met Kyle.
In N.
A.
I'm a recovering addict, too.
K-Kyle's not an addict.
Uh, look, this really isn't something I should be discussing with you.
It's between you and Kyle.
Well, I don't have that option right now.
And I need to know what happened to him.
I shouldn't be telling you this.
Wait.
You didn't know? He thought you suspected.
He had so much shame when he couldn't find a job.
He said you needed him to be strong.
That everyone did.
But he could talk to you? I let him be whoever he was.
H-he did the same for me.
I'm so sorry for bothering you like this.
Don't be! I always wondered what you were like.
I'm clean because your husband listened to me.
So do me a favor.
When he comes back Do the same for him.
If he comes back.
Well, it's about time.
I told you everything on the phone.
You didn't have to come over here so late.
Of course I did.
My baby's hurting.
I've got to be here with you.
Well, that's sweet, but -- Besides, I need to look you in the eye and make sure you hear me.
You have to close the door on Kyle for good.
It's a little more complicated than that.
No, it isn't, if you set your mind to it.
You've got to move on.
You don't want to be alone for the rest of your life, do you? Mama, please.
I can take care of myself.
Sugar, if God meant for women to be single, he would have taught us all how to use a hammer.
Okay, I really don't want to talk about the men in my life anymore.
But we can talk about the ones in yours.
I don't know what you mean.
Well, I know that you've been seeing someone behind my back, getting flower deliveries.
What if I have? Why didn't you say anything to me? While you're going through all this ruckus with Kyle? It would be heartless.
You sure it's not because I've made too much fun of you.
All the trips you've made down the aisle.
That could be part of it.
Mama, I'm sorry.
Okay.
Now, I want all the juicy details.
His name is Garrett.
Man has the sweetest love for the Lord -- something I find very admirable, considering my history with men.
You never give up, do you? Why should I? I deserve to be happy.
We both do.
Hey.
You ready for your massage? Uh, I kind of have to take a rain check on that.
How about Wednesday, six months from now? No, no, no.
You have given me enough hot memories to last the next six months and more.
A buddy asked me to cover his shift.
I'm heading out to the rig.
But I did bring you a little gift.
Oh.
Well, the kids and I both thank you.
And I thank you for listening to all my nonsense.
It wasn't nonsense.
Did you think about contacting Annie? Sometimes you just -- you don't know what a person's going through.
You think you do, but maybe you're wrong.
There's nothing that she could say to fix things now.
I'm fine where I am.
Hey.
Hey.
Something smells good.
In Greece, they give olive branches.
In Texas, it's chili.
I am pretty sure that I momentarily lost my mind the other night.
We okay? Absolutely.
Especially if you keep using food to apologize.
Good.
'Cause I'm not quite sure what I would do without you around here.
Unfortunately, I have some other news.
Hooked on painkillers? Are you sure? According to Maxine.
This whole time, I thought he was with another woman.
Turns out, he's just a liar about the car about being an addict.
My God, I can't even believe I'm using that word.
R-Riley, that doesn't even make any sense.
And why didn't he say anything to us? Maybe we made it too hard for him.
All he had to do was ask.
Instead, he left his wife and kids to fend for themselves.
Who does something like that? You can't start making excuses for him now.
The Kyle we knew is gone.
Uncle Evan! Uncle Evan! Hey, guys.
What are you doing? Come see our fort! Yeah? Yeah, I'll race you.
Come on.
I'm gonna beat you.
Oh, no, you're not.
Yeah, I am.
No, you're not.
Yes, I am.
Right over here.
What kind of fort did you make? Big one.
Cathy has a 9 -- Oh, my God.
You're home.
Hey, baby.
I've been so worried.
I know.
I'm so sorry.
For everything.
I wasn't -- I wasn't there for you.
I-I should've listened to you more.
I just didn't know how to tell you.
Well, you should have tried.
It wouldn't have made any difference.
Everything was just closing in so fast, and I've missed you so much.
Or maybe I just needed a release, you know, like you give those guys at work all day.
Look at you.
You're nothing but a whore.
