The Client List s02e04 Episode Script

My Main Trial Is Yet to Come

Previously on The Client List What kind of man takes advantage of his brother's wife? Evan, what happened? Construction and I are on the outs.
It might be time for me to find a new line of work.
Evan's gonna be a cop, and you're a -- Business owner? Now we got clients coming out of our asses.
I'm getting ready to hire some new girls myself.
How do I know who to trust? Follow your gut.
Who the hell are you? This is our new girl, Nikki.
Welcome to the family.
If Kyle's pulled you into something, it won't just be the money or your freedom you could lose.
It'll be your family.
I just can't take anymore -- between the kids and mama's accident.
Your mom told me the bail hearing happened.
How'd it go? Do you happen to have $7,500? This is for Kyle's bail.
I did all of this for you.
Do you like what you do here? I love what I do.
I get to put my P.
training to use.
You give a good interview.
Welcome to the Rub of Sugar Land.
Riley, is there something going on with you and my brother? I don't know.
If you don't want to take his money, that's fine, but we're out of options.
Pay the bail.
Oh, Dashiell, London sounds amazing.
I would die to go.
Oh, it's a great city, Riley, but it's a lot of traveling for one game.
Preseason was a blast when I was younger, and now Well, I could never get tired of that -- your life.
It seems great.
Pro ball gives you everything that you want.
Travel, packed stadiums, money.
There's just times when you want more.
Not more just different.
After a while, the thrill is gone.
Except here.
Well, I'll show you thrilling.
All righty.
I want it all God, you're beautiful.
I bet there is not a dull moment in your life.
You have no idea.
Mud pie! Mud pie! Yeah, I know that they look like mud pies, but they're actually scones.
What happened to our pancakes? Well, mama wanted to try something different.
Is that because daddy's coming home today? - Maybe.
- Daddy's coming home! Daddy's coming home! Daddy's coming home! Yay! The kids make this mess? No, that was me, and you're not helping.
Hey, is your shoulder still hurting you? You're supposed to re in your sling.
It's nothing I can't handle, which is more than I can say about your scones.
Are they too hard? They have a certain density.
You know what? I threw out the first batch, and I'm sorry that I'm more of a pancake girl and I didn't get your baking gene.
Well, "A" for effort, and if the kids won't eat these, you can always use it as a hockey puck.
Mama! I'll get the kids ready.
Hey! Come on in.
Wow, you look -- Busy.
I know.
Not really what I was gonna say, but okay.
Hey, thanks for taking the kids to school.
Today just got crazy around here.
Of course.
You okay? Yeah, yeah.
I'm fine.
It's just, you know, Kyle's hearing is today and he's gonna get out, and once that happens, I'm just not quite sure how I'm gonna handle that.
Same way you've been handling this past year.
Yeah, well, it's not that simple.
I went to see him a few days ago, and he knows about us.
I know.
You know? What do you think our fight was about when you bailed me out of jail? I probably should have said something before.
Yeah, well, you didn't.
Riley, I was just trying to make things easier for you, for us.
You have a little flour.
You mean the world to me.
I just want to be able to say it out loud to you, to everyone.
You know what? The kids are right down the hall.
Oh, hey.
Uncle Evan! Okay, let's go to school.
Uncle Evan, let's go.
Okay, hey, kisses, please.
Thank you.
I love you.
I'll call you later.
Aah! Oh, sorry.
Time to switch those two to decaf.
What's the story, morning glory? Let's move out.
Hair extensions and dye jobs wait for no woman.
Be right with you.
Oh! Oh, mama, are you okay? Oh, I'm fine.
I'm sorry about the pitcher.
Oh, don't worry.
We'll clean it up.
Are you sure that you're ready to go back to work? It's nothing.
I have clients.
Okay, well, did you think about what I asked? I'm not moving in with you.
You've got enough on your plate right now.
Besides, I can take care of myself.
Now, I'm going to work, which is exactly what you should do.
Is that understood? Yes, ma'am.
Oh, thank you.
I wouldn't if I were you.
Original Air Date on March 31, 2013 Thank you for bringing my suit.
Yeah, of course.
After our last conversation, I wasn't sure when I'd see you again.
Kyle, I got you a lawyer and I paid your bail because I wanted to get you out of here.
But we really can't keep having this conversation.
I know, and I'm sorry for everything.
I want you to know how much I appreciate all that you've done.
Uh, here.
Kids made that for you.
That thing in there is a donkey.
Travis is big on donkeys these days.
Tell him I love him.
I will.
Man, are they excited to see you.
I can't wait to see them.
I miss them so much.
Yeah, we'll have to figure out a time or a place once you get out of here.
Well, you'll bring them to the hearing? Please.
Oh, I don't know about that.
Riley, it'd mean the world to me if they were there.
I don't -- I don't think a jail or a courtroom is the right place.
You're just gonna have to see them the second you get home.
Well, will you come? I know that it's a lot to ask.
I know you got work.
It'd be a huge help if you were there.
Yeah, of course I'll be there.
Okay, well I'll be there.
Thank you.
Okay, morning, everyone.
I just want to say that all of you guys are amazing.
Over the past month, profits are up 62%.
Our client feedback has been stellar, and it's all because of you ladies.
And gentleman.
Well, thank you, darlin'.
You know what? Pamela brings up a great point.
Derek, you get an extra shout-out today because you have built up our female client base faster than I could have ever expected, and your repeat clients -- very impressive.
So, great work.
Can somebody please let her in? Sorry.
All right, y'all.
Let's go and make some people happy, huh? Okay, Selena, Nikki, Pamela, I need to speak to y'all privately.
Sorry I'm late.
I hope you got my message.
What message? This morning.
I left a message at the front desk with Selena.
Oh, yeah.
Pippi Longstockings might be late.
Okay, I just wanted to remind y'all to tell your client list clients that they can use the private V.
entrance in the back.
It's gonna be a lot more secure, and remember, no "special treatment" talk in the lobby.
You got it.
And before you go, I've got some great news.
Look! Okay, what am I looking at? A semester full of college extension courses.
Oh, I was off having two kids.
Yeah, I mean, I never saw myself getting my degree, either, but now that I've got the money, stability, and support Well, your clients love you, and so do we.
Now get to work.
Well keep the clients coming.
We've got a problem.
Oh, and Debbie Downer's back.
Someone's been snooping around.
My lock's been jimmied.
Well, maybe you forgot to lock it.
Oh, yeah, and maybe I'm still a virgin.
Anything's possible.
I have a client.
No, my stuff has been messed with.
I ain't gonna let it slide.
I think it's that new girl, Nikki.
Really? Nikki? Oh, come on.
She is too perky, always getting in everyone's business.
Who smiles that much? She's friendly! Oh, I don't trust her.
You don't trust anyone.
Maybe it's a you problem.
God, you look like an angel.
Yeah, well, you said you wanted different.
I can be whatever you want me to be.
Are you sure this is not too much oil? No, no.
It feels great.
Okay, a little more? The more, the merrier.
All right, well, gives new" Oh, maybe -- maybe just a little more.
What is going on? Is everything okay? I'm sorry.
It's not you.
I'm just stressed.
Big game tomorrow, and this new offensive coordinator is driving me nuts.
He must be getting on your nerves 'cause usually when you're stressed out, this extra oil does the trick.
I know, and you're great.
But, you know, we've done the extra oil before.
Okay, so, what do you want to do? Might take some preparation.
No, that's okay.
I can always make a special appointment for you.
Have you ever heard of sploshing? Hey.
Oh, hey.
Uh, hey.
What are you doing here? Kyle's hearing.
I thought, uh, you might need some moral support.
Oh, you didn't have to come.
I know.
I wanted to.
For you.
That's really -- that's really nice of you.
But you don't want me to be here.
No, it's not that.
It's just, you know, I mean, Kyle's got to get through this hearing, and, well, there's some stuff to work out for you and I.
Yeah, I get it.
Just, um You know, I just wanted to help.
I know that.
I'm sorry.
I just have to get through today.
Can you understand that? Yeah, of course.
Thank you.
I'll call you tonight.
I promise.
Parks, the court has confirmed that your bondsman has posted your bail of $75,000.
Barring any objections, you will be released on your own recognizance.
Your Honor, the prosecution moves to revoke all bail from Mr.
On what grounds? Newly acquired evidence.
Within the past year, Mr.
Parks has been identified in Mexico, associating with known members of the Nogales drug cartel.
That's insane! As a result, the Mexican government has placed him on a watch list.
We believe Mr.
Parks to be a flight risk - and a danger to society.
- What? This is a stunt, Your Honor! Counsel, approach.
Defense strenuously objects.
What is happening? How come this is the first time we're seeing this? It just came across my desk, Your Honor.
We haven't even had a chance to review it.
Noted for the record.
You may step back.
Parks, in light of this new evidence, bail is hereby revoked, and you are remanded into custody until trial.
None of that is true! Bailiff.
Wait, wait.
Your Honor, we haven't had an opportunity -- None of that is true.
Kyle -- None of that -- you got to believe me.
Order! Kids, when your mama gets home, I want you to give her a great, big hug.
Daddy, too.
Should we tell them? Riley's on her way back.
We should probably wait.
Kids have plenty of time to be sad.
Daddy! Where's daddy? Uh, your daddy couldn't come home yet.
The judge needed to ask him a few more questions, so It's gonna be just a little bit longer.
I knew it! I'm never gonna see daddy again! Never! Yeah.
Uh I'm gonna go and take care of them.
Y'all can wait.
We're not going anywhere.
Nine lullabies and three bedtime stories and they finally cried themselves to sleep.
I'm so sorry.
We weren't sure if we should tell them.
You did the right thing.
You okay? Numb.
It all happened so fast.
They called Kyle a drug dealer.
This is awful.
No telling what that boy did in Mexico.
Mama, please.
So, what about Travis and Katie? I mean, now that Kyle's gonna be in jail until the trial, are you gonna take them to see him? I don't know.
Of course not.
You've got to protect those kids.
Back me up, Lacey.
If Travis and Katie see their dad in a jail cell, they'll never be the same again.
What in the lord? What are you doing? Checking the locks.
Now, I think someone tried to pick yours, too.
My locks are fine, and you look like a crazy person.
By the way, if I was gonna blame someone, it would be you.
Oh, please.
Anyone gonna break in here, it's gonna be Nikki.
Anything else you need to talk about? Um Here.
They're recipes.
I heard you had a splosher, and homemade pies are a nice touch.
Wow! Selena, wow.
I am really What? Surprised.
That I knew what a splosher was? That you can bake.
Why you people think I can't do anything? They're color-coded.
I mean -- know what? Forget it.
Give 'em back.
Forget it.
I'm sorry.
I'm -- I'm gonna -- I'm gonna bake me some pies, so You know.
You're welcome.
Yeah, yeah, okay.
I still think that someone's snooping around.
Will you let it go? You can't trust new people.
Oh, why not? Because they are new, all right? You can hire 'em, but you got to watch 'em like a hawk.
Oh, is it just me or does he get sexier every morning? Like a hawk.
All right? Your shoulders are really tight, Lisa.
I know.
I think I pulled something in tennis.
I've been playing so much of it lately, what with my husband on yet another business trip.
Does he travel a lot? Gone six months out of the year.
But that's okay.
Most of my friends would kill for that free time.
Your hands are so perfect.
You know, it's not -- it's not so much my shoulder but more my upper chest.
You know, where I swing my racket.
Yeah, sure.
More like here? Yeah.
That's the spot.
You feel that knot? Not so much a knot, but it's tight.
You're close.
You mind if I show you where? No.
No, not at all.
More like there.
Ma'am, I don't know.
First of all, never call me "ma'am.
" Second, you'll make an incredibly lonely woman very happy.
No one has to know.
I'll make it worth your while.
You wouldn't believe what Mary Jo did.
She's just awful.
I know.
Where you been? Well, if you must know, I was in the bathroom.
Why is that a secret? It's not a secret.
I was just taking a test.
Dale and I are trying to get pregnant, and I thought No.
But we sure are having fun trying.
Anyway, as I was saying, Inez, Billy Ray didn't even get her a real diamond.
Oh, oh, Linette! Oh, you're burning me! Inez, you are gonna be just fine.
Can we get some ice for that? Oh.
All right.
Oh, God.
Linette, you are injured and you're not taking care of yourself.
Don't start, Lacey.
You're gonna listen to me.
You need to take some time off, and while you're at it, would you just move in with Riley already? She needs your help as much as you need hers.
I don't need Riley's help.
Shut it.
Just 'cause you're asking for help does not make you weak.
You raised Riley.
You pretty much raised me.
You're one of the strongest women I know.
I just don't want to be a burden.
You're family.
You'll always be a burden.
But at least with family, you'll never be alone.
Okay? Ouch! I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Class! A-ten-hut! You are alone! No one can help you! At least that's what cadets who fail this Academy think! Every decision that you make as a police officer affects everyone else here.
We are your partners, and we act as a team! - Is that understood? - Sir, yes, sir! - I can't hear you! - Sir, yes, sir! Now, everyone, give me 15 laps.
Move! Move! Looks like they'll let anybody in the police academy these days.
Even a felon's brother.
Still the same dick you were in high school.
When are you gonna grow up, Trimble? What? You gonna shiv me? Hey, hey! You punch him and you're out.
That's exactly what Trimble wants.
Don't do it.
I told you maggots to move! Move! You okay? Yeah, I'm fine.
Shelby, in case you're wondering.
Thanks for talking me down.
Yes, I was.
Trimble's an entitled prick.
Just beat his ass when no one's watching.
Come on, people! Want to race? I know you're not slowing down! Move! What the hell are you doing in here? Selena, hey, I ran out of lavender oil, and I thought that -- Bull! You're going through my stuff, huh? What are you looking for? I don't know what you're talking about.
Oh, don't play that innocent crap with me.
I am on to you, girl.
What is your problem? I swear, if I catch you going near me or my things again You have been nothing but nasty to me since the first day that I got here.
I will rip your damn head off! Hey! Good Lord, what is going on in here? Everybody can hear y'all.
Caught the bitch breaking into my room, going through my things.
Riley, it's not what you think.
Okay, look, Nikki, everyone here deserves their privacy.
Now, what were you doing in Selena's room? Oh, I know exactly what she's doing in here.
Same reason she tried to break into your office and jimmy open my lock.
She's a thief.
I want her gone, Riley.
You don't trust me, either? I'm gonna ask you again -- what were you doing in Selena's room? Whoa.
I thought we were a family here.
Isn't that what you're always telling us? Back home, I'd borrow things from my sisters, but I'd always replace whatever I took.
- I ain't your sister.
- Hey.
Back down, Selena.
I thought you were different, Riley.
Look, Nikki, I -- You think that I'm a thief.
That's fine.
You can think whatever you want.
I don't care.
I quit.
You're one step closer to owning the Rub.
Yeah, on a day like today, I might just get buyer's remorse.
What made you hire Nikki in the first place, apart from that size "C" cup? I went with my gut, just like you did when you hired me.
You know, she reminded me a lot of myself.
Lost and scared and just hoping to land on her feet.
Well, a lot of people land.
Some don't.
Yeah, anyway, I need to talk to her.
I've been trying to call her.
You know, you are the boss now, and you are gonna drive yourself crazy if you struggle over every situation like this.
Now, the girl quit.
That's on her.
The best that you can do is just let her go.
Take those boxes down the hall to the left.
I mean, do people actually enjoy baking? This is more confusing than Travis' science projects.
You really are moving in a lot of stuff.
Are you having second thoughts? No.
Not at all.
I'm glad you decided to do it.
Where are the children? I was looking forward to seeing Katie half-covered in meringue.
Yeah, well, they're still upset about not being able to see Kyle.
I mean, he's gonna be gone for a bit.
You're not still thinking about taking them to the jail, are you? Definitely thinking about it.
Look, mama, they miss their daddy, you know? I just want to do right by them.
Put that down and listen to me.
Do you remember when Lacey moved in with us when you were kids? Oh, yeah, when her daddy left and her mama -- Falling down drunk.
Now, I'm gonna tell it like it is.
All those nights, I held Lacey in my arms while she cried herself to sleep.
Yeah, I remember her being so sad.
She could never see the good in her mom.
All she could see was the trouble her mom was in.
Now, don't do that to Katie and Travis.
Don't take them down to that jail.
Let them keep their -- their good memories of Kyle.
Hey, Nikki.
Still trying to reach you.
Will you call me back? You have no idea how persistent I am.
Call me.
Nikki still hasn't called you back? No.
I think we might have misjudged her.
I never thought I'd say these words, but you might be right.
She sent me these.
Hello, it's after 3:45.
I had a 3:30 with Derek.
Check this out.
"Sorry for going into your room.
I'd never steal from you.
Take care.
" He's running I'm not waiting for this any longer.
Ma'am, if you just give it a sec, I can talk to my boss.
What was that? Derek -- he took on a new client, Lisa, and this is the second time he's gone overtime with her this week.
I'm guessing that's Lisa.
The one and only.
Well, doesn't Lisa look extra relaxed? I think our cowboy's running a little side business.
Hey, Derek, can I talk to you in my office for a sec? He's in trouble.
What made you think that you could run your own happy-endings side business under my roof without me finding out? I don't know what you're talking about.
Don't play games with me.
I was just as surprised as anyone when Lisa asked me for a happy ending.
And at first I thought it was just a one-time thing, but then she kept asking for it.
I thought I wasn't hurting anyone, and you're always telling us to make people happy.
And you didn't think I'd have any concerns? I just plain didn't think.
I'll pack up my stuff, and I'll get out of here.
Please just don't call the cops, okay? Oh, Lord.
I'm not calling the cops.
Thank you.
I knew you'd understand.
I mean, if I got propositioned, hell, I'm sure you guys get hit up all the time.
Oh, yeah, we do.
So, how do you handle it? By following a very specific set of rules.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Wait a minute.
Does that mean that you -- Listen and learn.
You're serious.
Deadly serious.
First rule is, if you're gonna service your clients, you don't talk about servicing your clients.
Second rule is, you go back and you recheck rule number one.
Am I making myself clear? Crystal.
I'm gonna talk to Lisa and your other clients and make sure they know which rules they're following.
That's not a problem.
Then I'm gonna raise your room rent.
Anything you make on tips, you can keep.
Did you want to say anything? Any questions? Just that I landed the best job ever.
Yeah, don't ever hide anything from me again.
I am so glad I don't have to keep this a secret anymore.
Only one who knew was Nikki.
Yeah, well, she never said anything.
I know.
That's why I trusted her.
Have you seen her since she quit? Actually, well, yeah.
I'm gonna see her tonight.
She called this morning and asked me to come by after work to help her move.
She's getting evicted.
I'm coming with you.
Now get out.
This is her place.
Said she'd be home from work by 7:00.
Wait a minute.
She's got another job already? Well, sort of.
She's back working at the club where she used to dance before she came to the Rub.
Stuck her on the day shift, and she's not making crap.
Listen to me.
Just listen to me when I talk to you! Get back in this car! Nikki, don't! Nikki, get back here! Nikki, get back here! I'm serious! Give it up! Nikki, get back here! Oh, my God.
Get back here! Don't walk away from me! I'm serious! Let me go! Look at me! Look at me! Riley, wait, wait! Hang on! Riley! Hey! Hey! Are you kidding me? - Leave me alone! - Hey! No! I'm not done with you! Stop! Nikki, no.
You're gonna push around a girl, scumbag? Take me out! Get back in your car! You have no idea.
Now, get out of here! Are you okay? I'm fine! What are you doing here? I trusted you, Derek! Well, I'm sorry, but when you didn't call me back, I got a little worried.
Who is that guy, huh? Your boyfriend? No.
Well, whoever he is, we should call the police 'cause we just saw him hit you.
No, you can't the cops.
Please! Listen to me.
I've got two kids at home, and I'm putting myself in danger by being out here.
Now, you better talk to me.
You know how I used to strip before I was working for you? Well, I swore I'd never go back, but when I quit, I needed a job fast, so I called my old boss.
The guy who just roughed you up? His name is Greg Carlyle.
He owns Wild Nights off of highway 59.
Are you kidding me? You're working at Wild Nights? That place is very dangerous.
I had nowhere else to go.
I was almost two months behind on my rent.
I was about to be evicted.
I don't have $1,500.
So, I called Carlyle, and I begged him for my job back.
So now you don't have to move? I worked it out.
God, I had no idea you were this behind.
When I started working at the Rub, I saw a future for myself for the first time in my life.
And when Carlyle paid my rent, he made me drop out of school again.
Treats me like he owns me.
We're gonna figure this out, okay? No! He is never gonna let me go -- not again.
You have no idea what he is capable of.
Nikki, Nikki, I can protect you.
You've already done enough harm.
Just leave me alone.
Just a smooch more to the left.
I'm pretty sure when Riley asked you to move in, that didn't include rearranging the family photos.
Less discussing and more rearranging.
Just a tap more to the left.
That's perfect.
Hey, have you guys seen the takeout menus? They were right here in this drawer.
Well, now they're by the phone in a binder, which is where they should have been in the first place.
The kitchen, too? I have a lot of free time.
You know what, mama? I've got way too much on my plate to not be able to find the pie palace menu.
I thought you were baking the pie.
Never gonna happen.
What is this obsession with pies these days? Is there something you're not telling me? You know what? You can rearrange my whole house but not my whole life.
I want to read this one! Kids! Mama! Read it! Kids! Riley.
You guys doing okay in there? Yes, ma'am.
We're trying to read dad's letters, if you don't mind.
Okay, so, is this one of those moments where you need mama, or do you want to be alone? Alone, please.
Fair enough.
Where is the phone? Just keep breathing.
You're doing great.
What's going on? I don't know.
Don't "nothing" me.
You got a world of hurt on your shoulders.
It's just with Kyle back I don't know why, but it just feelsstrange.
Of course it feels strange.
You and Evan? It's complicated.
Well, that is putting it mildly.
It's completely natural to feel conflicted.
But Evan loves you, and the best thing you can do is be honest with him, how you feel.
That's the hard part -- figuring out how I feel.
Anyway, I'm just -- I'm -- I'm, you know, worried about the kids 'cause they miss their daddy so much, and he's gonna be in jail for so long.
And I don't know what to do.
You are an incredible mother And you'll figure it out.
You know, mama told me how hard it was for you to watch your mama go through all of her troubles, all the crying, and I just want to protect Katie and Travis from that.
Well, Linette means well, but she shouldn't speak for me.
Those are my memories.
Sure, it was hard watching my mama go through hell, but it was better than not seeing her at all.
Whoa! Where'd you learn how to kick like that? My Uncle taught me.
We used to go one-on-one all the time back home in Louisiana when I was a kid.
You guys still close? He died when I was 16.
Great guy.
Even better left winger.
Mind if I ask how he passed? Yeah, I do.
Didn't mean to pry.
No, there's just some things I want to keep private.
I know a lot of people don't want you in the academy because of your brother.
The way I see it everyone deserves a chance.
Can't hold anyone's family against them.
Come on.
What are you waiting for? All right.
I really want to give you a second chance, Kyle, but I have got to know what happened in Mexico.
Nothing happened.
Then why would they revoke your bail? When I was down there, I bought pills.
All right? I didn't sell them.
I really want to believe you.
Riley, I slipped up.
All right? But I am clean now.
And I am never going back to that.
All right? I promise.
How are Travis and Katie doing with all this? How are Travis and Katie? They're awful.
They miss their daddy.
I would never hurt them.
You did when you left.
Look, all I can do is say that I'm sorry.
All right? And then prove myself to you and them every single day.
But in order to do that, I need my family with me.
You got to let me see our kids.
You at least try to bake them? Yes, actually, I did.
And I appreciate the recipes, but let's be honest -- these sploshing pies are the last thing I need to be worried about.
Yeah, I hear you.
What'd you buy? Ooh, I went with creamy.
Lemon meringue and Boston cream so he has a choice.
See, I draw the line at rice pudding.
Those damn kernels get stuck in places you don't even want to know about.
Uh, yeah.
Look, we need to discuss Nikki.
She's in trouble.
Punky Brewster get knocked up? Derek and I went to see her, and she's working over at Wild Nights.
She crazy? That guy's so messed up.
Well, she said she didn't have anywhere else to go, and now she's in debt to him.
I may not have wanted that girl around here, but nobody deserves Carlyle.
Look, I know that you hate to admit it, but we are a family.
She needs our help.
What do you want to do? What makes you think Carlyle's gonna listen to you? Because he's just like everybody else -- driven by money.
Maybe he's gonna take your money and screw us.
Not this time.
There he is.
Hey! Hey, dollface.
We want to see Nikki.
I want to see the money.
Nikki first.
I'm so sorry, Riley.
I didn't mean to drag you into this.
Where's the money? $1,500.
Right here and Nikki comes with me.
Deal's changed.
I forgot the interest.
It's gonna be another $2,000.
Yeah, that's not gonna happen.
Is there a problem here? No, everything's great.
Carlyle, have you met my friend, Detective Monroe? I'm afraid I haven't had the pleasure, but I do have a lot of friends on the force.
Really? I'd love to meet them.
Why don't you give me their names and we'll all get to know each other.
Maybe set up a bowling league.
Everything all right, ma'am? Oh, she's fine.
I was asking the lady.
She was just coming with me.
Come on, Nikki.
Let's go.
I'm so bummed, but I have to go.
Take care, Riley.
I'm just gonna hang back and get to know my friends a little better.
It's always a pleasure, Mrs.
I'm sure I'll be seeing you real soon.
Night, y'all.
Thank God your detective friend showed up when he did.
Did you think I would have gone in there without a backup plan? Do I look completely insane? Nobody's ever cared about me enough to do something like that.
I don't know how to thank you.
Well, you could come back and work for me.
We need you at the Rub.
Don't we, Selena? What she said, yeah.
Okay, starting tonight, we all make a pact that we trust each other, yes? Okay, let's break this up before we all start crying and want to braid each other's hair.
Watch it, new guy.
Come on, I'll give you guys a ride home.
All right.
Good night.
Thank you.
I'm just glad you're all right.
But if you think this is over, you're fooling yourself.
Guys like Carlyle -- they don't give up easy.
I know that.
But you know what? If I had to do it again, I would help Nikki in a heartbeat.
You just watch your back.
I'm telling mom! Can we have some lemon meringue? Not now, baby.
- Those are for your mom.
- Hi, Mom! Oh! Hey! Mama, what are they still doing up? I couldn't get them out of that damn fort.
Mama, these pies look amazing.
I baked them today with my one good arm.
What is all this about? It's about you.
You're so sweet to let me move in.
I want you to know I can help out.
Thank you.
Hey, mama, I'm gonna -- I'm gonna let the kids go and see Kyle in jail.
You know, I -- I really appreciate your advice, but they just They miss their daddy.
You're right.
You know what's best for your kids.
I managed to nurse Lacey through her nightmares, and if Travis and Katie get scared, I'll be there for them.
And I'm here for you.
That's what we do.
We're family.
Nowwhich one of these am I gonna try? Whichever one you want.
I won't tell.
Go ahead.
Ah! That's good.
Shh! Some that don't fade and they read just like a road map ♪ time cuts a deep track through skin and vein but you know everyone falls sometimes ♪ don't they all? You know bridges get burned sometimes as we cross ♪ don't we all? You're in good hands with Derek.
First rule of the client list is, there is no client list.
Second rule -- enjoy yourself.
And we're not the same time calls your name and we're all afraid time calls your name and we're not the same no, we're not the same Hey, is there room for one more in here? Yeah.
Oh, are those more donkeys for daddy? Yeah.
He's gonna love those, just like he loved seeing you guys today.
I'm gonna protect you, mama, just like you're protecting us.
Is that why I always feel so safe? Man, I'm a lucky girl.
Who wants a story? Me! Snuggle up.
Get comfy.
All right.
Let's see.
Let me tell you a good one.
Oh, I know.
All right, once a upon a time, there was a penguin.
Do you like penguins? - Yeah! - Yeah? Okay.
There was a penguin named Peter.
And he lived in a very cold igloo.
