The Last O.G. (2018) s01e07 Episode Script

Lemon Drops

1 I'm finally back on the outside.
And I'll be damned if it don't feel like it did in prison.
I mean, sure, in prison these toothbrushes, razors, and flossers would be considered deadly weapons.
And dropping my guard this long for an internal dialogue could result in me being sliced from hole to hole.
But otherwise, life isn't any better now.
You're only as free as how free you feel inside.
Gustavo, don't be sneaking up on me, man.
That's my bread.
Okay, this joke is my best joke.
Why is "6" afraid of "7"? - I don't think I know.
- Because "7" ate "9"! I know y'all better wrap your mouth around these - Cap'n Crunch Fritters.
- Ooh.
- Okay.
- Go ahead, Amira.
Don't sleep on those.
- Oh.
- Mmm.
Tray, these are really good.
They got a sweet-and-spicy thing going on.
Yeah, it's the crunch berries hanging out with the jalapeño.
- All right.
- They hit every taste bud, you know.
How do you come up with these crazy recipes, Tray? In prison, you got to be creative.
You know, you got to use every ingredient you can find.
This is, honestly, the best friggin' fritter I ever had.
Mom, Tray should make these for the shelter.
He uses all the same, cheap, processed foods they have there.
But Tray doesn't need us volunteering his time.
- He has his own life.
- Are you kidding? I love spending time with my kids.
What shelter are you talking about? Amira's been helping me at the homeless shelter with me.
I'm actually making a documentary about it.
They're underfunded and underappreciated.
It's heartbreaking.
Y'all love you some charity, huh? Well, we try to remember how blessed we are, and pay it forward, yes.
I mean, it's shameful.
It's like society threw these poor people out with the trash.
Just like you, Tray.
- Amira! - What? I mean, Tray could give them some advice.
You know, how he's talking about life, and spitting street wisdom I think the guys will really like him.
What do you think, Tray? Come and get it.
Lasagna made out of Lunchables and ketchup and a little bit of duck sauce.
I call it "Wow-style.
" Is this gluten-free? You better gluten your ass out of here, I know that.
He's special, isn't he? He is on the spectrum, yes.
No, Shannon.
I mean, he's special to you.
You got to say "Excuse me.
" Now I don't want to hear all that "He who smelt it, dealt it".
Girl! - No.
- Mm-hmm.
- No.
- Mm-hmm.
- Mnh-mnh.
- Mm-hmm.
Mnh-mnh.
Billy C! What's happenin'? It's so good to see you, C.
- Dropping it like it's hot - Oh, yeah.
picking it up when it's cold.
We're all mammals, but brothers and sisters in the eyes of God.
And right now, God's eyes are watering because of your ass-crack, Billy C! Craig! Albino-dreads! In the house.
That was so fun.
You were really vibing with them.
Everybody need a little love and friendship.
Well, thank you so much for being generous with your time.
I enjoyed it.
One thing I say about the homeless and convicts We both know what it is to be invisible.
Oh my God, that was so wise.
Oh, hold on, hold on, hold on! I want to get that on camera.
Okay.
Say it again, Tray.
I don't remember what I just said.
But keep the camera rolling.
I'll give you some more gold.
You know what the homeless need most? You know what they value the most? Clean socks.
Clean socks for the homeless is like cigarettes to a convict.
- That stuff is like currency.
- It's so sad.
This shelter is one of the few places where people can go, and its days are numbered.
For real? Yeah, Miss Betty's in debt.
There's only so much you can do with the funds that we raise.
It's not enough.
Why doesn't someone like Michael Bloomberg just come in and sponsor them.
Yeah, one of them punk-ass bankers or stockbrokers.
They can, at least, chip in.
Or just pay their taxes.
I don't know, baby.
I don't know.
It just breaks my heart to see these people starving, and lying on the streets and we're doing all that we can.
Doing all that we can.
'Cause I got this idea for this app, right? So, it'll recognize what apps you like, and then, automatically, download apps that it thinks that you like, and then delete the apps that you're not using.
You know what I'm sayin', son? So every Tray.
Tray! - What's up? - Sorry, Bobby, man.
I just can't stop thinking about the homeless shelter.
Man, if I had the funds, I'd donate.
Well, I mean, if you was listening to my idea, we could get the funds.
You know what I mean? Listen, man I try, and I try, and I try to be a positive force in my community.
Nothing I can do.
Well.
Well, well, listen, cuzzo.
That's not entirely true.
What you talkin' about, Willis? Well, there is something that you do better than anybody I've ever met.
I'm a felon.
Ain't nobody gonna hire me as a chef.
I ain't talking about that.
I ain't talking You know what I'm talking about.
Pitchin' them rocks, flippin' the birds, huggin' the block.
- Come on, cuzzo.
- No! You're not listening to me, Bobby.
I'm not selling crack in my community no more.
Not going to happen.
No.
Well, I mean, if you don't want to know I mean, I got I got an idea.
Don't play coy with me, Bobby.
Speak.
Okay, alright, you want to hear the idea, here the idea.
So, look, I was watching this medieval movie on the TV the other day, right? Yo, saying it had, um, it had your man - Morgan Freeman in it.
- I like Morgan.
Yeah, that's right.
He was in there, and he killed a witch with, like, a curved sword.
Yeah, "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
" That's it.
That's it.
Directed by Kevin Costner - and starring Kevin Costner, yeah.
- Okay, alright.
- I'm familiar with it.
- Yes, yes.
So, your man Kevin Costner right? He would rob the rich, and give to the poor, hm? I'm not robbing nobody, Bobby! I ain't used a bow and arrow in years, - and when I did, I wasn't even good.
- You know what? You know what? I'm not even going to go there.
I'm not going to go there.
What I'm saying is, what if you didn't sell drugs to your community You fartin'? No.
Just trying to think of why this is the stupidest idea I ever heard.
You know what? I don't belong out here no more, Bobby.
You know, maybe that recidivism shit is bound to happen, man.
But if I do got to go back to prison, it's going to be for making this a better place, man This world, a better place.
Well, Kevin Costner did get to have sex with Scarface's sister.
- Say word? - Word.
That could be Shay in this scenario.
Hmm.
At last, I believe we do have a plan, Little John.
- Yeah! - Wrong Lil Jon! - What?! - You said you saw the movie! What?! Okay! - Hello? - Yo, we the plumbers.
Uh, I didn't order any plumbers.
It's cool, baby.
Hey, man.
This is man, I ain't been back here in years.
You know what I'm saying? Aw, man.
I see how you fixed the place up real nice, but I tell you what.
The memories are still in here.
Oh, yes.
You guys are trespassing.
I don't want to have to call the cops! Now wait, wait.
Take it easy.
Relax.
Relax, man.
Look, follow me.
Right here? This is where Clyde's bed used to be.
- Uh-huh.
- My bed was right there.
All playing video games, right there, and if you step to the right, I lost my virginity right there to Keesha.
- You remember Keesha? - I remember Keesha.
Oh, man, she had a big booty, but you're probably not into that.
Aw, man.
Look at the wall.
Is that the same wallpaper from 15 years ago? Found it.
Clyde's old insurance policy.
Enjoy the rest of your night, young man.
You play this? Let's go, Bobby.
Naw, you don't You don't play this.
I'm going to go ahead and take this, man.
Hey, yo, man.
So, we back? Time to be Robin Hood now, man.
Committing crimes and giving money to the poorest people among us.
Alright, but hey, look, listen, listen.
You sure you want to do this? Look, you know this can send you right back to the joint.
And all that trying to be a positive force in the community is out the window, baby.
See, that's the thing, Bobby.
Our community been going and been gentrified by these rich, bougie motherfuckers.
So, now they're our new clientele.
Alright, then.
Well, let's get this money then, baby.
Let's go then.
Hey, how much do you think I can get for this? I don't know, $12, $15 out on the street.
$12? I can get I can get $80.
Alright, so, tell me this.
How are we going to get these rich, white folks to do crack? - We're going to rebrand it.
- Oh, like Kanye West, huh? Like, how he changed his music, his style, and loses his mind every six months.
- Exactly.
- Yeah.
See, crack's image's been tainted.
So we simply don't call it crack no more.
This is something different now, something new, something yellow.
That some yellow-ass crack.
Why it look like that? Because it's been there for 15 years.
But it's still crack, though? I mean, yeah, but the yuppies don't know that.
Only way they would know that if they smoked crack before.
You know what? Now that we back in the game, I know Clyde is smiling down from heaven right now.
They say crack is whack.
Naw.
Crack is back.
Oh, yeah.
Listen, you work inside right here.
I'm going to work the streets, alright? Alright, word.
May the d-boy gods be with you.
- Just be safe.
- Always, baby.
- Be safe.
- Always.
Conner! Conner! Conner! Oh, sorry, man.
I mistook you for a co-worker, man.
- Really? - Yeah, man.
Y'all brokers, too? Yeah.
Yeah, we're at Feldman Sims.
- What about you? - I'm doing independent business.
Actually, I got this big opportunity, man, I'm shopping around now.
Y'all might be interested in it.
Uh, what you got? How would you like to invest in a good time? Uh, okay.
What are we talking here? Lemon drops.
$100 a slice.
Like the candy? Kind of, man, but if you smoke this shit, you'll get as high as a motherfucker.
I don't know.
I've never even heard of it.
That's because it's on some designer drug shipment.
Brooklyn-exclusive, man, but it's about to be popping everywhere soon.
I saw this on "Vice.
" It's real.
Yeah.
He saw it.
Listen to your man.
Yeah.
Alright.

Remember, man.
Tell a friend and tell a friend.

You know how we get down, Big Country.
Well, well, well.
Big man on the block again, huh, Barker? - Where you get all those ducats? - What you talkin' about? You think I'm dumb? I knew it was just a matter of time with you.
Yeah, I've seen the story play out a thousand times.
You just can't resist the temptation! Always getting yourself in trouble! Man, it's not even like that no more.
I help people now.
Oh, that's what you're going to tell the judge? Say it with me now, "Re-cid-ivism".
You need to take your cue from me.
Yeah.
Do as I do.
I should be your role model.
Dude, you are a shut-in.
I barely see you leave this halfway house.
I stay out of trouble! That's what I do! I put all my energy into my comedy.
Man, you don't even perform nowhere.
I perform every day! Every day at this hou This house is my stage! You're a riot, Mullins.
Look, Barker.
All I'm saying to you is, don't become a statistic.
- I'm out.
- Listen.
O-o-okay.
Alright.
I tried.
I tried.
Okay, you're going to need a little help? Alright, alright.
Go.

Go.
Go.
Go.
Go.
Go.
- Go.
Go.
Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! So, y'all been taking my lessons? How do you make jailbird pie? When did you record this? I didn't even know you was in the room with us.
Pretty great, huh? It's called cinéma vérité.
Put some flour on it.
Make sure nothing stakes, boom, and then you get into it.
It's like a fly on the wall.
You get the real out of people, and not some buttoned-up façade.
You're used to seeing Italians do this, but this is a black man.
Italians stole it from a black man.
That flip like that came from Africa, the Congo.
My head look like a side of beef.
Come on, Amira.
I look like the Elephant Man's cousin.
Add a little spam in there.
Spam is the key.
Man, this footage is amazing.
I can't believe how good you are with people.
Amira, those are my people.
I'm from the streets, you know? For me, it could have went either way.
I could have been one of those people.
It's so cool to see you turn you life around, and helping others do the same.
It's just so inspiring.
Truth be told, I did a lot of damage in my community.
Hurt a lot of people.
I see when I look at you and your brother and your mom I see what I missed out on.
I see what I lost.
I just want to do things different this time.
You know I think I found the subject of my documentary You.
- Me? - Yeah.
I mean, there's no story as uplifting as your story, Tray.
Man, I'm totally gonna get into festivals and win awards with this.
Amira? Thank you.
That means a lot to me.
But I don't think you're going to win an award not with my head looking like that! - Oh, my gosh.
- Come on! You could fix that in post.
Let me see.
What, you want me to make it bigger? Come on, Amira.
Bobby.
Bobby.
- Bobby! - Yeah?! Could you stop goldbricking, man? These lemon drops ain't going to wrap themself.
Yo, we been working hard, right? Yeah.
It's good for the soul.
Well, um it'd probably be cool if we set aside, like, 5 Gs, right? You know, for us, kind of like a ghetto gold star for all our good deeds, right? No way, Bobbito, because that's not what we're doing this for.
Look.
Come on.
Check this out.
Look at look, look, look at these fresh kicks.
Now, before you go there, you're the one that's always saying the way you present yourself is important, so it seems to me, the better we dress, - the better sellers we can be.
- Bobby.
Bobby.
Bobby.
You're missing the point.
You think Robin Hood cared about how he looked? Yes! Kevin Costner was fresh.
To be able to put all those greens together, and wear tights Come on, son.
Kevin Costner's Robin Hood never even wore tights, okay? He wore britches.
As a matter of fact, he fired the costume designer that even suggested he wore tights.
Say word? Well, it seems to me like he cared about his look.
No, Robin Hood didn't care about his look.
He dressed down.
He was a man for the people.
Well, why can't I be a man of the people? Because we're not going to be slinging this shit so you can bop around in fresh sneakers.
I'm using my God-given talent to help people in need, okay? This is all about giving, man.
This ain't about taking for ourself.
Now start wrapping! Alright.
Oh, but look It's some gold chains, right now, on sale.
- If I act now I - No! I'm Robin Hood, man.
Everything I do, I do it for you Okay, alright, I-I'll bag up, if you if you stop singing.
Oh, yeah, I got dibs on the first hot shower.
Nobody arguing that.
You need to shower more than anybody.
I think we should take a moment to thank the charitable mystery men that donated this water heater.
He is our Robin Hood.
Everyone, we have a new resident at the shelter.
He's a broker having some rough times lately.
Let's just all give him a warm welcome, and make him feel at home.
And I want to introduce you to Tray.
He's been such a help to me.
Where is Tray? Well, he was just here.
Where'd he go? Hey, hey, hey.
Bobby, come on, man.
What the hell, man? What? Okay, I splurged a little bit.
What? This is not okay.
We're supposed to be on the low.
Come on, man.
We made like 20 Gs last week, alright? All my brother's product, might I add.
Okay, I spent a few dollars on a couple of trinkets.
Don't make me feel bad about this, cozzel, don't do that.
That's not what we're out here doing, okay? We're supposed to be on some Robin Hood shit.
You the one who's always talking about this Robin Hood mess.
Look, you do whatever you want with your money.
You put whatever spin you want on it.
You can say it's "lemon drops," call yourself Robin Hood.
At the end of the day, we're out here selling crack, B.
No, it's done.
'Cause you right, Bobby.
We supposed to out here on some Robin Hood shit, but instead, I done become Sheriff of Nottingham, man A secret devil worshipper.
By day, I'm a pillar of my community, but at night, I'm out here doing some real, evil shit.
Ca ca calm down, Tray.
Come on.
- Let's not do nothing rash.
- It's over.
I never should have started selling this crack shit with you, Bobby! I knew I was making a mistake! Amira.
Amira, baby.
Amira! Ami
