The Client List s02e07 Episode Script

I Ain't Broke, But I'm Badly Bent

Previously on The Client List You got something to say to me? What kind of man takes advantage of his brother's wife? Kyle's the one that left you.
And I said for -- for better or for worse.
Hit "delete.
" What? You need to hit delete on the file that is you and Riley, and then go into your trash folder and hit "permanent delete.
" It's not that easy.
We believe Mr.
Parks to be a danger to society.
Look at you with the secret life.
You know me.
Woman of mystery.
I don't like to mix my personal and professional life.
That's right.
You got your own little honey down at the Academy.
Oh! You're under arrest.
Mommy, she won't get up.
What do you mean she won't get up? Well, go and try again.
Hi, baby.
You know that you're not supposed to be drinking, right? While taking that medicine or while watching my kids.
Thank you.
You have my number.
That was quick.
How did it go? Well, apparently, mama can't have visitors for 72 hours, and I'm not even supposed to call.
You haven't even spoken with her since she checked herself into rehab? No, I woke up this morning, and she had packed everything and left a note saying how upset she was about Katie.
Just because she had a little bit too much wine with her pain pill? No, it's more than that.
Five prescriptions for pain pills.
I guess it's been going on since the accident.
And you had no idea? No.
I mean -- I knew she was in pain, but mama a drug addict? Yeah.
Well, at least she admitted it and is asking for help.
The kids have been through so much.
By the way, who's gonna help me take care of my kids? We're all gonna pitch in.
We did it before.
We'll do it again.
Thank you.
All right, I got to get to work.
What, you are -- you cannot possibly be going to work today.
Really? Who else is gonna pay for this place? Riley Come on, let's go.
Okay, well, I told you there were gonna be sparks.
Uh, let me just go get my oven mitts real quick.
I'll be right back.
Hey, what is going on? All the lights are doing that.
All right, y'all.
I don't do well in the dark.
Do y'all smell something burning? Yes, my wallet.
Original Air Date on April 21, 2013 English Tea House.
Please leave a message.
It's me again.
I know we've had this discussion, but you have to bump the other people.
You cannot do this to me.
Oh, my God.
The world has ended.
The English Tea House has double booked.
I don't have a venue for my sister-in-law's baby shower.
Why is it up to you to throw her shower in the first place? Have one of her high-and-mighty friends throw it for her.
Because it's important to Dale.
But when he asked me to throw his sister's shower, I didn't know there were gonna be five more.
Well, okay, all right.
If it's so important to Dale, why don't you ask him for help? Because Dale's on a run in Santa Fe, like he always is when Earlene has a shower.
You know, she thinks that we owe her because she lent Dale and I money to start our trucking company, but we paid her back a year ago.
Don't you just hate those big, brassy women who take over a room? They're all sunshine and "y'alls," but you know they're just wishing you a bad day.
Yes, Taylor, you have no idea how annoying they are.
Oh, my God, without the tea room, I am doomed.
No, you're not.
Georgia said yes.
You got the venue.
It's all gonna be high-end, and you get the friends-and-family discount.
Ooh, Riley Parks, you're a lifesaver.
Well, at least for someone.
She's gonna be okay.
I hope so.
Anyway, this shower is almost over, and I'm gonna be with you every minute, just like you were with me this morning.
You better be because hurricane Earlene is a category five.
Ohh, looks more like a six.
Lacey, sweetie, there you are! Earlene! So good to see you.
You're a day early.
Bless your heart.
Aren't you just the most beautiful pregnant woman I have ever seen.
Simply glowing.
I'm Taylor, Lacey's boss.
Actually, I'm own boss.
I rent my chair.
Well, I-I'm poaching her for the weekend.
I want to be pampered.
I know it's gonna be hard.
But I want you to make me look more beautiful.
It is hard to believe that you're even pregnant.
You look thinner.
I know, right? It's my brother, Dale.
He's the one who looks pregnant.
Oh, it's nanny number three.
Isn't she just the sweetest? I don't know.
If by sweet, you mean a total -- ooh-kay.
All right, next up is The case involving the exclusionary rule addressing the fruits of the poisonous tree doctrine is? Mapp vs.
Ohio? Thank you for playing, Trimble.
Shelby? Wong vs.
Gold star for Officer Prince.
Ow! Oh, hey, Riley.
No, I'm just -- I'm at home prepping for my police exam with my -- my study group.
Oh, yeah.
No, I can watch them this weekend.
No, I'll be there.
All right, I'll see you then.
Everything all right? Oh, yeah, it was just my -- my sister-in-law.
The ultra-hot Riley? Yeah, she just needs some help with her kids this weekend.
Mental note -- good with kids, helps hot sister-in-law.
I didn't realize that the Rub is in the red-light district.
Power outage.
We're doing our best.
Riley? As in, "life of.
" Oh, not quite.
That would mean I had it easy.
Um, family name.
What about you, Mr.
Monahan? Oh, please, Dylan.
My mom was a hippie, thought I'd grow up to be Bob.
Oh, well, judging by that suit, I guess you didn't.
Yeah, I'm about as far from being a folk legend as you can imagine.
I manage an overseas investment fund.
Oh, that sounds -- Republican.
I know.
But fear not, the only good thing about my job is that it pays the private-school bills.
You're a dad? Yeah, single dad.
Juggling work and their schedules.
I'm not gonna lie.
I feel ripped in half.
Oh, I hear you.
That's why I haven't been to the Rub in more than a year.
Well, that is what I'm here for, to put you right back together.
Okay, let me just put this underneath your neck.
There you go.
And we'll start with your chest.
Does that feel good? It feels amazing.
Good, 'cause this is gonna feel even better.
Something wrong? No.
But it is so nice just talking to you.
What do you say we take this whole "get to know you" thing to this Italian place in Houston that I know? We can ask each other awkward questions with our clothes on.
Mm, I admit, that does sound nice.
Uh Let me guess.
You have a policy against dating clients.
Yes, and I am the boss, so Oh, that's a shame.
I wish I'd met you outside of here? You seem like the perfect girl.
You have you idea how often I hear that.
That's funny.
I've never said it to anyone.
Hey! Can you put Mr.
Monahan in for 3:00 p.
tomorrow? I can put him in anywhere.
Oh, Nikki, did you get those lamps for the treatment rooms like I asked? I sure did.
Halogens for everyone! Right, just what every girl needs.
A spotlight on her lady lumps.
You know what? It's only temporary, okay? Georgia's electrician is busy today.
He's gonna come by tomorrow and check things out.
Can't we just hire a different electrician? Not unless we want to pay.
He does this in exchange for massages.
So, he's gonna work on our wire, and we're gonna work on his? So inappropriate.
It's funny, though.
And no.
He's a happily married man who only wants legit massages, so which one of you is gonna be my team player? Not even asking you.
Nikki, it's your assignment.
Oh, so, I get Bill Nye the science guy and you get Hotty McHotterson? Is Dylan hot? I didn't even notice.
Ain't what your headlights are saying.
Oh, well, at least there's some lights working around here.
I'm inappropriate? You're rubbing of on me is what's happening.
Yeah, I am.
It's good.
Yes, this is Mrs.
Travis and Ethan? What kind of trouble? Give me that! Careful.
I'm sorry.
Hey, you two.
All right, stop.
Why don't you take him into your room, please? Go play.
I am so sorry that I couldn't leave work when the school called.
Here, come here.
All right, shoot.
What's going on? Well, Mrs.
Chang caught them cheating on their spelling test.
Is she sure? I mean, that doesn't even sound like Travis and Ethan.
Oh, wow.
Apparently, it's been going on since they started school.
Okay, so that would be just about the time that his daddy got thrown in jail.
Well, my ex isn't behind bars, so what's Ethan's excuse? You okay? I can't even make it home in time to see my son get suspended.
Hey, this isn't about us.
Travis is a good boy who made some mistakes.
Yeah, you have no idea how many times I've heard that.
I don't understand.
Your husband's lost visiting privileges.
What? What did he do? with another inmate.
Fighting? My God, is he okay? Lady, I look like a concierge to you? Look, when can I see him again? Have your lawyer call ADCO.
Do you know that every time I call a lawyer it is like another car payment? Your lawyer's the only one who can request an admin review.
Can you just -- can you get him a message for me? Not a concierge, I get it.
Oh, yes.
Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah.
Right there, Lacey.
Oh, that is just -- Lacey, what are you doing? You are so good with that.
Well, I'm just giving Evan a trim.
Why, what did you think I was doing? I don't even want to say, but it's after midnight.
And the kids are in bed.
Read to and tucked in, like you asked me to.
Lacey just offered to give me a little trim before my inspection tomorrow.
Hey, I heard about Linette.
You, uhyou feel like talking about it? No, actually, I don't.
Uh, well, I have to be in Sugar Land early tomorrow morning.
Yeah, well, I got to get up early myself, so I guess I'll get going.
Thanks so much, Lace.
You're welcome.
I'm sorry.
It is really late.
I know, but -- when I heard that buzzing -- Mommy? Hey, sweetie.
What's wrong? I got a me-graine.
I think you mean a really bad headache.
Come here.
I don't think I can go to school tomorrow.
OhI think maybe you're just embarrassed about what happened.
You know what? You just don't cheat again, okay? I'm too dumb for those tests! Hey.
Don't you say that.
You are not dumb.
But I mix up all the letters.
Well, sometimes, when we're studying, you do mix them around a bit.
Can you do mommy a favor? Will you spell "cake" for me? C k a? Okay.
It's that much for a consultation? For educational testing? Yeah, I'm gonna have to call you back.
Oh, hey.
Elvis, how was Nikki's massage? Spectacular.
She's a real live wire, that one.
Speaking of, your estimate.
Wait, I thought this was a trade.
And it was -- one massage gets you the estimate, but if you want to get your electrical right again, it's gonna cost you $3,500.
$3,500? Is that the best you can do? No, that's with the 10-finger discount for Nikki doing such a good job.
You call anybody else, it's gonna cost you Okay.
Well, you're gonna have -- you're gonna have to start today, 'cause we need to get our power back on.
All right, well, I'm gonna need a check to start.
You got it.
Surprise! Wow.
Look at all this.
And You, in your suit.
Oh, yeah, business, not birthday.
Thought we'd save the naked lunch for another time.
You look very handsome.
I-I guess I'm just surprised, that's all.
Someone wants to take care of you for once, and not the other way around? Yeah.
Yeah, well, I'm a single dad.
Trust me, I get it.
I don't remember the last time somebody brought me lunch.
Here, have a drink.
You know what, Dylan? I can't.
Sure, you can.
It's my hour, my time.
If I want to spend it sipping champagne and giving you a neck rub, well The customer's always right.
Well, that's -- that is true, but I told you -- No, no.
You told me that you couldn't go out with me.
You didn't say anything about me bringing a lunch date in here.
So, technically, I'm not breaking any rules.
You're good.
And you are gorgeous, and overworked, and need a break relaxing with a brilliant -- yet modest -- business man.
So, what's it gonna be? Are you for real? What do you want? Look My life is really complicated, and my job is kicking my ass right now.
I just want to have a nice lunch with a beautiful woman whose company I really enjoy.
BLT toast? Sure.
To eating in.
So, the lights are flickering, and there's this big boom, and all the lights go out.
Then, it's all wires and fuses.
I know the drill.
Yeah, it's the downside of being the boss.
The buck stops here, and then it rolls right back out to pay the bills.
Well, before you turn into a pumpkin, when can I see you again? Uh What we do here at the Rub -- it is not a fairy tale.
It's a -- It's a fantasy.
I understand.
And I'm not looking to start a relationship right now.
If I was, no offense, but it wouldn't be here.
None taken.
I just want to keep having a good time with you until I have to leave again.
Where are you going? Hong Kong.
On business.
But, before I go Your tip.
Dylan, this is, like $1,000.
You are worth every penny.
I-I don't -- I don't know what to say.
Say that you'll meet me in my hotel room in Houston before I leave for China.
What? Are you -- are you asking me to Look, Riley, you are the most sensual, savvy woman I have ever met, and being with you would be a dream come true.
I'll pay you $50,000 to sleep with you, just one time.
That number is huge.
I've heard figures like that in Paris and Tokyo, not Sugar Land.
This man really wants you.
Yeah, well, the money is tempting.
Of course, it is.
Speaking of which, I'm gonna need a little bit more time on this month's payment.
Oh, with everything that's going on in your family? Of course.
I can wait a bit for a payment.
You know, you have a big decision on your plate.
I've never gone all the way with a client.
In fact, the only man I've ever done that with is my husband.
Are you telling me that Kyle is the only -- Hello, Harold.
Nice to see you.
What are you two up to? Oh, no-- girl talk.
While setting up for the baby shower, I see, and it looks great.
Thank you for hosting, by the way.
Oh, of course.
Can I give you a hand? Uh, no.
No, no.
Okay, well, I'll be in my office doing paperwork.
Okay, honey.
Good to see you, Riley.
As we were saying I was a virgin until Kyle, and I haven't slept with anyone else.
You're telling me all the while he was away, even while he was in jail, not even once? Well, I was -- I was tempted.
Tempted? Is that what you call it? Yes, Georgia, okay? I get horny.
I've spent some time with Rita Rightie.
Rita Rightie? Look, I'm only human, but this is for money.
I mean, what I do at the rub it's fantasy, you know? This is real, and I'm just not that kind of girl.
Well I think you've made the right decision.
Because once you've crossed that line, it's done.
There's no going back.
Don't peek! Okay.
Okay, now, you're gonna have to sit down.
- Okay.
Or kneel.
Keep 'em closed.
All right, where did you go? All right, you can open them.
Happy anniversary, baby.
Here's to spending the rest of my life with you.
And you.
Harris County Correctional.
Yes, I'm calling about inmate Kyle Parks.
Still no phone privileges? Okay, thank you.
Oh, thank God, you got a head start on those favors.
Mwah! And we still have about a million baby storks to assemble.
How's the game prep coming? Riley, if you don't want to help me with Earlene's shower, I totally get it.
I know that you have a lot on your plate.
No, I want to help you, of course.
It's just -- I have this decision to make, and I just want to make sure that I I'm not making the wrong one.
Anything I can help with? It's Travis -- that testing he needs, it's kind of pricy.
Well, doesn't the school pay for those tests? No.
Not since the budget cuts, so I have to hire a private company, and The testing he needs is $800 to start.
Just for the tests?! And then what if he does have a learning disability? Then it's thousands of more dollars in treatment.
And then Linette's rehab on top of it.
Yeah, I just feel like I can't keep up as it is.
And I keep missing things, you know, like mama and now Travis.
That is not true.
I kind of wish I could just snap my fingers and make a big box of money appear.
You and me both.
Hey, Selena.
Oh, something else is going wrong at the Rub? Sure, go right on ahead.
Lay it on me.
Riley, there you are.
Here's your new estimate.
New estimate? What you do mean? I found another problem in one of the treatment rooms.
Work's gonna take a little longer than I thought.
Yeah, well, it always does.
Come on by my office when you're done, and I'll write you another check.
Money problems? No, everything's fine here at the Rub.
I wasn't talking about the Rub.
You know, we should do one of those sexy car washes.
I am under enough water here, but I do appreciate the offer! Yes! It worked for Cameron Diaz.
Riley! Hotty McHotterson's here to see you.
And he brought roses! Roses? Hmm.
I know what that means.
I'm sure they're not for me.
Hey, Selena Don't sleep with him.
These are for you.
Oh, and, um So is this.
the Stansfield in Houston.
I'll be waiting for you.
I can't.
Is it me? Did I do something wrong? No.
No, you did everything.
If circumstances were different So it's a "no"? It's a very generous offer.
It's just not me.
I understand.
And more than understand, I respect your decision, but I am leaving for six months.
Well, then, I will see you here at the Rub when you get back.
I'd like that.
But just in case you change your mind you'll know where to find me.
Goodbye, Riley.
Oh, excuse me.
Oh, yes.
That's him, isn't it? Oh, he's quite a handsome man.
Yeah, he is.
Well, I bet it wasn't easy turning him down, not the way these bills are piling up.
Oh, you came about the Rub payment.
Of course not.
With everything going on? But with the way you were looking yesterday, I just thought I'd come by, check on you.
I don't know what I'm gonna do.
I mean, I've got attorney fees and family stuff and repairs that were supposed to be free.
Well, I am not here to put more pressure on your shoulders.
I just can't be sleeping with that man.
I know, honey.
I know.
A long, long time ago, when I was in escrow on the Rub, my ex ran off with my whole bank account.
And I received A timely offer.
Georgia, you accepted it? The next day, I closed escrow, and I got my business started, but I also bought a lifelong regret.
So, now you understand what I was saying when I hired you.
No girl should ever have to do anything that makes her feel uncomfortable.
This fistfight has complicated everything for Kyle.
Yeah, I'm sure it has, but I thought that you were gonna make a deal? Yeah, I'm trying, but prosecutors still want your husband to give up everything he knows about Vandermeyer, including Kyle's accomplice.
I know this guy helped Kyle get clean.
Wait a minute, h-- His accomplice helped him get clean? I assumed you knew.
No, no, I-I didn't.
May I give you some advice? Only if it's free.
You're sacrificing everything for your husband.
Just make sure you're looking out for yourself, as well.
I would make a contingency plan -- put away some money for a rainy day.
'Cause Kyle might be put away for a long time.
Please, just try and picture if you wanted to talk to your wife and you couldn't.
It is very important.
Please, just let me talk to him.
I'm sorry, Mrs.
sail maybe I'm a different breed maybe I'm not listening so blame it on my A.
, baby ♪ Sail ooh sail ooh sail ooh sail ooh sail ooh sail ooh sail ooh sail sail Wow.
I didn't think you'd show up.
Neither did I.
You look stunning.
I'm not done yet.
You know, I really think that this place is cute.
- Don't y'all love it? - I love it.
Oh, my God.
I'm so glad.
I was so worried that you -- It reminds me of that dive bar we used to go to back in college.
What was it? The Thirsty Armadillo.
Earlene, you didn't go to college.
Honey, I spent three semesters at JCC.
JCC is hard! Oh, oh.
No, I can't sit down.
That was before the twins were born.
You know, family comes first.
She has sacrificed so much.
I know.
I'm always telling Dale that, too.
Always telling Dale what? Well, that you got to make sacrifices to get ahead.
Like, he should buy one of our HVAC franchises.
He's too damn stubborn.
If he had listened to me, he would be here right now and not out on the road.
Well, Dale loves his job, and Dwayne isn't here, either.
Oh, honey! You can't compare the two.
Anybody can drive a truck.
Well! Must be nice to have yet another child.
Oh, yes, I can't wait to meet our little angel.
Soon, it's gonna be just midnight feedings and all-night crying.
Oh, and don't forget about the baby.
Oh, yeah, it is hard.
And then your life, it changes forever.
That's why, Lacey, you're lucky.
Oh, yeah, I'm living the dream.
Would anyone like some more scones? Lacey, could you please help me with this? Oh, ohh, she is really a piece of work.
Are you okay? Yeah, I just need Riley to get here.
She keeps Earlene in check and keeps me from killing her.
You know, I mean, if they only knew how lucky they were.
I would kill for sleepless nights.
Well, your time is coming.
I know it.
Da-da, da-da-dum Oh, um What's wrong? I want to kiss you.
I have sort of this Julia Roberts, "Pretty Woman" thing, so No kissing.
This isn't working.
I don't want all this.
I want -- I want the real you.
Okay, but, you know, what we're doing here, it's not -- it's not real, so Maybe not to you, but it is to me.
You're the first woman I've been with in over a year.
When When did your wife leave you? She left me and the boys and 8 days.
If you don't mind me asking, why did she leave? She, um She claims that she fell in love with someone else, that I worked too much, that I wasn't emotionally available.
All I know is everything I ever did, I did for her and my kids.
I begged her to stay, to not break up our family, but she wouldn't change her mind.
You're the first person I've talked to about this.
That's good.
You need to get that stuff off your chest.
It's not the sex.
It's Riley, there is something about you, something special.
Something that can fix what she broke.
I feel like you understand me.
I do.
And I want to understand you, too.
See the real you.
Can we just forget about everything else and just -- just enjoy each other? This is Riley.
You know what to do.
Hey, it's me.
Where the heck are you? Earlene is driving me crazy.
God, Riley, I need you here.
You wanted the real me.
So, here it goes.
I'm a single mom.
My husband left me, and I have been deadly insecure ever since.
I lie to my family and friends about what I do.
Hell, I lie to everyone about everything.
And I hate it.
And here I am, and I'm gonna sleep with you for $50,000.
I'm a mess.
A beautiful mess.
Why does a guy like you want to sleep with me for $50,000? 'Cause I don't want to hurt again.
Well, look at us.
Two beautiful messes.
Yeah, this is Riley.
You know what to do.
Farewell, so long, 'cause I was wrong, I guess farewell, so long, 'cause I was wrong, I confess I miss the way you I miss the way you sing with me ♪ - Kyle? - Riley.
You told me how desperate you were, and I didn't get it.
Are you okay? You sound like you're crying.
I-I'm okay.
I'm okay.
I just -- I miss the way you You talked to Graham about the deal? No, it isn't -- it isn't that.
I just -- I can't -- I can't -- I miss the way you sing with me ♪ Riley, talk to me.
I-I'm okay.
Riley? Bye.
Well, last but not least.
Dale and I wanted to give earlene something special - to welcome her newest bundle of joy.
- Oh! Oh Well, isn't that quaint? Quaint? Well, I mean, it's just veryCountry.
It's real pine -- Dale made it himself with his own two hands.
It's just like my brother to do something like this.
I mean, we just finished the nursery.
That thing is gonna totally clash.
That thing! I'll have you know that Dale spent three months working on that thing -- nights, weekends.
And don't even get me started on the safety issues! Oh, no, honey, you have already started.
You do not deserve that gift, not with that attitude, and furthermore -- Georgia, thank you, but I got this.
Oh, all right, now.
I have had it, Earlene! I've had it with you and your -- Lacey! Why are you yelling? Because I want you to hear me loud and clear.
You will not put Dale down in front of me.
It ends today.
Oh, and another thing.
Dale and I may not have kids yet, but we are a family.
Your family.
Got it? Well I never.
Well, you have now, Earlene.
You have now.
Yes, well I'm about to get on the road.
And I just want to tell you you were right.
How did that taste in your mouth? Oh, honey, I am so sorry.
Dale's my big brother.
You know, he's always protected me.
I was always in his shadow, and you know he casts a big one.
Is this an apology or not? Oh, when I married Dwayne, I finally came into money.
And here I am, the first chance I get to help y'all out with your first truck, and I just lord it over you.
Yeah, you tear Dale down every chance you get.
Oh, but I don't mean it, Lacey.
It's just how me and my girlfriends bond.
We rip on each other's husbands.
Believe me, I know how awesome Dale is, and he worships the ground you walk on.
The only time I get any attention from Dwayne is when something is coming or going down there.
Well, how about we find another way to bond? Honey, I am in.
Well, Lacey Thank you for the shower.
It was absolutely perfect.
There you are.
I was so worried.
Is everything okay with your mom? With mama? Isn't that why you're late? No, lace, it was, um -- it was sort of a work situation.
So, wh-- whoa, whoa.
So, you missed this for work? Please, I need you to understand.
No, I'm always there for you, whatever you need.
I think I understand just fine.
Lacey! Well I guess you need a drink.
Sorry I'm late.
You are a lifesaver.
You know, I didn't know someone like you would have so many trashy mag-- magazines.
Yeah, you know, I always got to keep up with Will and Kate.
Will and Kate? Please, I'm -- I'm lookin' at la-Lohan.
I mean, so what, the girl goes commando? I don't know what the big deal is, anyways.
It's not like she's banging some random tourist.
But when I did that, he, um -- he tipped really big.
Yeah, I'm sure he did.
Uh, how was, um How was the shower? It was great, great -- lots of baby stuff, and That's good.
Kids asleep? Like rocks.
Thank you.
Very much.
I-I'm gonna take this as my cue.
Thanks again.
I'll see you in the morning.
All along it was a fever a cold sweat, hotheaded believer ♪ I threw my hands in the air and said, "show me something" ♪ he said, "if you dare come a little closer" 'round and around and around and around we go oh, now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now ♪ you know not really sure how to feel about it ♪ something in the way you move ♪ makes me feel like I can't live without you ♪ it takes me all the way I want you to stay ooh What is going on? Talk to me.
Riley, I'm sorry about the fight.
And then I couldn't see you.
I really need you now.
I need you, too.
And Travis -- he needs you so badly.
I mean, he's having a really hard time in school.
Well, he's gonna have his daddy home a lot sooner than we thought.
What are you talking about? I'm talking about I'm getting out of here.
But how? Well, I had a choice to make, and I chose you.
