The Hard Times of RJ Berger (2010) s02e09 Episode Script


Previously on The Hard Times of RJ Berger Tomorrow is your daddy's and my 20th anniversary.
RJ, I was just wondering if you were free to spend a little time with your old man tonight.
- Dad, of course - Oh, God.
Oh, thank you.
I'm telling you, as a veteran of divorce, these things never end well.
Counted on you, and you weren't there for me.
There's a space.
Right between douche-face one and douche-face two.
You know, there's a very spacious one over there.
Seriously? You don't want me to park here because of the big, scary jocks? Check your side.
Do I got it? Yeah, does she have it, homo erectus? Yeah, you got it, Amy.
Ho, ho, is your little boyfriend old enough to sit in the front seat? Uh, says the guy who drives alone.
Not quite, driving miss nerdy.
My name is RJ Berger, and I really need my driver's license.
Don't let those idiots bother you.
You know, just take comfort in the fact that guys like Max Owens either end up fat or in jail or both after high school.
It's not even that.
I'm just so tired of being stuck with my mom and freaking coach, or in my dad's petri dish of a hotel room.
I just need independence.
I need to be able to get out.
I need wheels! Oh.
You're not about to break into song or dance or anything, are you? You have a lady friend with a car.
It's kind of like having your own wheels.
Thank you, but it's not the same.
I need my license.
So you're almost 16.
Push down on the clutch and get it in gear.
Yeah, I apologize.
That was really stupid.
It was kind of cute.
Come on.
We got to know at least one adult that would supervise our driving practice hours.
My brother Chet lost his license.
My mom's working late.
Hey, what about your dad and that pimp mustang? Nobody say nothin'.
Got to down some mistake juice, and then we can get started.
Roger, the almost lily murderer, is our driver's ed teacher.
Oh, God.
Good morning, class! It's 2:00 in the afternoon.
What are you, like, the frickin' tell-time guy? No, I'm not the Tell-time guy.
All right, listen, ass napkins, while I'm down the hall taking a deuce and blowing out my "o" ring, here's a little safety video.
Hit the lights, cherry.
No, no, red shirt cherry.
Hey, kids! My name's skid mark, the safety stain A magical mixture of asphalt, tire rubber, and human blood.
Want to know how me and my brothers get born? Well, watch this.
I'm made when careless new drivers don't have their eyes on the road.
Just like that, I have a new baby brother and you're dead.
While your family forever suffers your loss, haunted by guilt that ultimately destroys them My family gets a new baby! Even fun times can end in tragedy.
Oh Whoa So remember, kids, keep your eyes on the road, or we'll haunt your dreams forever.
In hell! That was awesome.
What'd you do? Spread too fast? Cheerleading mishap.
Jennifer Swanson.
Such a shame.
As new head cheerleader, I fully accept your leave of absence.
Feel better now.
Back off, bitch.
Go chase cars somewhere else.
You two deserve each other.
Hmm, uh, bye-bye.
Thanks for sticking up for me.
Well, us ex-Berger ladies got to stick together, right? Hey, you want to hang out tonight? We can kind of do a "where the boys aren't" thing? We can drink and gossip and talk about how every single person at this school sucks balls! Okay.
That sounds fun.
I could actually use that right now.
Hey, Rick, there's a girl on the phone over here for you.
I'm coming.
She sounds like a young one.
I got it.
Who is it? Hey, dad.
It's RJ.
Oh, what do you want, traitor seed? How many times do I have to say I'm sorry? I don't know.
Let me think.
More? Look, I'm not happy about coach and mom either, okay? But I'm not the enemy.
Everyone is my enemy now.
Dad, I I need a favor.
Oh, really? What can I do for you, son? Dad, this is really important to me.
Do you still have your car? Sort of.
Dude, I can't believe we get to practice in your dad's sweet mustang.
Hey, let's just hope it runs, okay? My dad's sort of gone off the deep end.
Aw, come on, RJ.
Give him Rj, over here.
It's daddy.
Oh, my God.
What is he doing? And why can't I stop staring even though I'm disgusted by it? Come on, guys.
Let's roll.
There's no way we're getting in that.
Give him a shot.
Look, he's trying to be a good dad.
Besides, Berger, if you never get wheels, then you never get to have fun in the back seat.
Well, one thing's for sure.
If we don't get in, he just keeps honking.
- Hey, Amy.
- Hi.
- Hey, bud.
- Hey.
- Hey, Mr.
- Seatbelts.
So, dad, how, uh, how have things been? Oh, you know, my wife is humping my coworker and my only son betrays me and then needs a favor the next day.
The usual.
You've also got a dude's junk as a hood ornament.
Hunkeez is pinkerton's finest gentlewoman's club, Miles, and it pays this car's lease, provided I drive around three hours a day through densely-populated areas.
That's the weirdest thing I ever heard.
He means good for you, Mr.
That's very proactive and industrious of you.
Well, thank you, Amy.
I also get as many complimentary chicken wings as I want.
Three square meals a day.
So what happened to the mustang? Mustang's in hock.
As is my family.
And myLife.
Oh, jeez Dad.

Now, uh, ease on the brake.

Wait, we're at hunkeez? You brought us to a male strip club for a buffet.
Wait, dad, what are you doing? Come on, guys.
We'll have some wings and a soda.
It'll be fun.
Um, yeah, as a female and a vegetarian, there's no way I'm going in there.
Well, suit yourself.
What about you boys? Uh, you know, for once, IAgree with a vegetarian.
It's just Dad, come on.
You're embarrassing me.
I see how it is.
You have time for your mom, but no time for your old man.
Come on, dad.
Are you sure about this? It looks kind of silly.

We're doing each other's hair weird.
Haven't you ever done that before? Not really.
Well, for what it's worth, you look amazing.
Well, thank you.
You look very pretty yourself.
You know, for the longest time, I thought you hated me.
Oh, I did.
But now that I have Hamilton, losing the battle for RJ's bulge doesn't really bother me.
We both lost that battle.
Well, look on the bright side, Barbie.
At least you're still popular.
Not anymore.
Ugh Man, we have been waiting for an hour and a half and counting.
All right, screw this.
I'm going in.
If you're going, I'm going.
Yeah, I'm totally staying out here by myself.
I Dude, is there anything more creepy than being in a male strip club? Ugh.
I feel like I'm gonna be attacked by someone's Johnson out of nowhere.
Now you know how girls feel.
No one's gonna attack us.
Yeah, right.
Aah! Where the hell you been? Ooh, I'd like to take a shot off that body.
You are an hour late.
I got a room full of horny housewives about to rip this joint apart.
Oh, no.
No, no, no.
Uh, I'm just looking for my dad.
I know.
Daddy didn't give you enough love growing up.
That's why you became a stripper.
I don't got time for therapy.
Get up there and shake your snake, kid.
Come on.
Get up there.
Wait, I'm sorry.

She probably doesn't let herself watch her own favorite show.
You know, she used to be my best friend, but I guess she is kind of Say it.

- Say it! She's a lowdown, dirty, sloppy second slurping bitch! You're right.
She's a bitch.
She she stole my life.
She stole my boyfriend.
She dropped me on purpose, and all the other girls know about it, but they're too scared to say anything.
I never did anything to that stupid whore.
That skanky, bitch-ass ho! Yeah! Now you're talking.
I like it.
That felt good.
Yeah, scared me a little too.
Sorry about what she did to you.

Plus half of my daddy issues just completely evaporated.
Skills like this, kid, they run in the family.

Hey, bud.
Mustang's looking good.
Not gonna park it outside the motel, are you? Uh, no.
