The Last O.G. (2018) s02e09 Episode Script

Your Mom's in My Business

1 TRAY:Popular wisdom states one should never do business with family.
But the definition of family once meant Mom and Dad, 2.
5 kids, and a kitty cat named Jasper.
All under one roof.
But not anymore.
Today my family is my ex-girl, her white husband, and the twins we are all successfully co-parenting.
And if the definition of family has changed, then maybe the rules need to change, too.
All right.
I'll have to go to work after we finish with this prep.
Yeah, no sweat.
Me and Green Eyes will handle this.
Yeah, we got this, white boy.
Uh, "Josh" is fine, too.
"Josh" sounds whiter than "white boy".
- Cool.
- Let me tell you something, man.
We're gonna make so much money off of this, I'll be paying you and Shay back in no time.
Oh, listen, we look at this as a long-term investment, so take your time and, you know, build business slowly.
Man, forget that.
I got to get this paper.
Now it's time to feed Brooklyn.
Who want it? - Who want it?! - Let's go! - Hey, Josh? - Uh-huh? You said long-term, right? Yeah, I didn't mean this long-term.
Uh, as I'm sure many of you are aware, there was an unfortunate tweet sent out from my personal Twitter account early this morning that involved me sharing an intimate picture of myself with my children's nanny.
- Hm? MR.
COPELAND: Love is a funny thing, and we find it in the most unexpected places.
Unfortunately, not everyone understands this.
Certainly not your wife.
Ooh! But alas, the heart wants what the heart wants.
And for that I do not apologize.
What I will apologize for is the fact that all of our clients have since canceled their accounts and, effective immediately, Copeland's will be filing for bankruptcy and laying off all of our employees.
What the hell?! [ALL MURMURING.]
Everybody knows nannies is hoes.
The Last O.
2x09 Your Mom's in My Business How are your crab cakes? I mean, Red Lobster's better.
Plus they got cheese butter biscuits, so Look, Bobby, I'm sorry, okay? About the whole Greg thing.
I should've told you about him.
I was s-scared and messed up.
But I'm having your baby.
And I don't want us to be enemies.
I mean, I don't want that, either.
Whoo! Okay.
I am so glad to hear that.
I can put these back on.
'Cause for a second, I didn't know if we was gonna be wildin' out or what.
You know what? You crazy, Lisa.
But I guess we can be friends.
Real talk? I don't want my baby to grow up without a father.
Mine was never around, and it sucked.
My father left to get a Ja Rule CD and never came back.
Ja Rule not even that good.
Matter of fact, the the only father I remember in the hood was Mufasa from "The Lion King".
- Mm.
- And you see how Scar did him.
So fathers ain't doin' well around my block.
You think you'll be a good daddy? Come on.
Don't do that.
Don't play me like that.
What are you talking about? I got this.
- You know what I'm sayin'? - Well, what What you gonna come with? Look.
I can change diapers.
I can I can fix bottles.
And plus, I'll tease 'em.
I'll do the ShammGod cross-over, okay? We've got this.
All we know is his name is Aaron and he was last seen outside a barbershop in Brooklyn.
- Hey.
- Hi.
So sorry about what happened.
Are you okay, babe? Yeah.
Just can't believe Copeland gave up his whole fashion career for some coochie.
Well, yeah.
Well, how hot was the nanny? [CHUCKLES.]
Remember when I said we will never have a nanny? Mm-hmm.
- That bitch is why.
- Gotcha.
You know, this whole thing has got me thinking.
Maybe I should start working for myself, start my own fashion line.
- Really? - Yeah.
I mean, I might as well.
It's something I've always wanted to do anyways.
Yeah, I mean, I guess there won't be a better time than right now.
You know, Faith said the same thing when I talking to her about it.
You talk to Faith before you talk to me? Uhh, yeah.
Faith is more interested in my career than the hot nanny.
Oh, okay, that's not fair to me or the hot nanny.
SHAY: Boy, look.
Look at all of these designs that I've done already.
From back in the day.
- Yeah.
Oh, man.
- See? You spend every free second drawing these designs.
This is clearly what you want to do.
You know, you're right.
Now it's time for me to do me.
You have been doing this a long time.
Some of these styles are a little old.
Well, maybe I won't use all of them.
I don't know.
You know, if BET ever does the Bell Biv DeVoe movie, you'll definitely get a call.
They will call you.
Hey, Bobby! You're lookin' good, my man.
Whose identity you stealing? Nah, it ain't even like that, okay? Bobby's going blue-collar, man.
He's gonna be a bug man.
- What's the scam, though? - Oh, I know.
He tells the homeowners they got to be out for four hours while the fumigate, and then his boys break in and rob the place while they're gone.
I mean, that's a good idea, but I'm going legit.
Ah, you got, like, a real job.
Nah, listen, man.
I brought Bobby by so he could check out the house, maybe make a proposal to Mullins.
- What you think, Bobby? - I mean, that would be good, but first, I got to find evidence of roaches or rodents.
Oh, wait a minute.
I-I think I found something.
This right here is droppings from a German roach.
It's the most common roach found on the Eastern seaboard.
And this is just nasty.
Mullins needs to clean this place up.
- Hell yeah.
- You're damn right.
- Most foul fucking place - Pow! - Whoa, whoa! - Whoa! [WHISPERING.]
This is a Madagascar hissing roach.
- Oh, hell no.
Agh! - Oh, my God! BOBBY: Oh, this is a fantastic one.
Wait a minute.
This has been on the entire time.
Everybody breathe slow! Party West Coast wide, so what y'all wanna do? What's this? Ohh! Ooh! I know what this is.
Now that you tasted my cooking again, you can't have nothin' else.
I got you hooked, right? No, but since you mentioned it, let me get one of those Snitches Get Ceviches crab salad sandwiches.
- You got it, pretty lady.
- Josh was telling me you're starting up your own fashion line.
- Yo, Shay, you're gonna kill that.
- Thank you.
And I've been doing some really good work with it, too.
But I realized that I shouldn't be starting my new business until Josh and I get that money back that we gave you for this food truck.
Ah, man, I thought you and Josh had that, like, disposable white-people money.
I wish we did, but we don't.
So once this food truck starts making some money, then I can start my new business.
So I was just thinking I'd come down and help out a little bit, you know, like a consultant.
So, go ahead.
Do whatever it is y'all do.
- All right.
- And just act like I'm not here.
What'll it be, my brother? Yeah, let me get the Parole Board Bacon Burger and a side of French Connection Fries.
Parole Board Bacon Burger.
French Connection Fries.
You got it.
That'll be $10.
- You come back now, you hear? - Thank you.
- Okay, okay, that was a mess.
What?! What did we do wrong? The man got his food.
We got our money.
Holla! - Guys, you've got to up-sell.
- What's up-sell? Remember, back in the day, a customer would come up to you, say, "I want two rocks for $10"? - You offered them - Four for $15.
Exactly! Up-selling them.
So, a customer comes up.
They say they want to buy some fries.
You offer them a soda for a dollar more.
Now, we buy our soda in bulk, so that's like, what, 30 cents a can? Boom.
That's where the money come in.
Through the sodas.
Everybody know that.
Everybody knows that! - Everybody know that? - Mm-hmm.
See, we start offering two-for-one meals, combos mess around and do a loyalty card.
- Mm-hmm.
- And I must say, you look sexier than ever.
Well, thank you.
Yes! Yes! Come on.
I'm glad you're here.
- I need your help, yo.
- What's wrong? You know what I'm sayin'? You know I'm trying - to make things right with Lisa, right? - Yeah.
So I invited her over for dinner.
But But come look, man.
Yo, what's that smell? Look at that, man! Bobby, you can't feed that to a pregnant woman.
That baby might not never want to come out.
L-Look, I know, man.
I don't want her to find out that the the father of her child can't even cook a single meal.
Man, don't worry about it.
Uncle Tray Bags is here.
I'm gonna help you out as much as I can.
Thank you, cuzzo.
Look, I-I've got everything.
I j I just went grocery shopping, man.
Yeah, that's uh, the child-safety latch.
I-I baby-proofed everything.
I'm talking about the cabinets, uh, the power outlets.
I even I even foam-guarded the sharp edges.
I went a little overboard, huh? - [LAUGHS.]
- Wh Ohh.
L-Let me show you something.
Let me show you something.
Um I-I wrote a letter to the baby.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
It's, um It says how I-I felt when I found out that I'll be a Dad.
That's beautiful.
I mean, like, I-I I'm I learned a lot just watching you.
You know what I'm sayin'? You missed 15 years of your kids' lives.
And I see how much that means to you and how hard you work to be in their lives now and I don't want to miss a second.
Look at me.
Bobby, you won't.
Oh, oh, let me let me show you something else.
Let me show you something else.
Ohh! Look, look.
I'm making a baby bed with my bare hands.
No, it's called a baby crib.
But God bless you anyway, man.
Listen, I'm gonna be ready when the baby comes.
I spoke to my, uh, my training supervisor at Bug Assassins.
- Mm-hmm.
- He said if I do good on my test, - I can get all the premium accounts.
- Wow.
I'm talking about all the fast-food restaurants, the middle-school cafeterias, like, all the nastiest places! You're trained to go.
I see that in your eye.
But before you put the baby in, test it out with, like, a cantaloupe or a watermelon or something.
Oh, no, I was just gonna get somebody else's baby here and throw it in.
- You was gonna do what? - I was gonna get somebody else's baby.
No, you're not.
It's been a long comin', mommy, I'm on a roll Gee, your boy comin' with the fat, bad roll, huh? Damn, Shay! Where you find all these women? I contacted some of my designer friends that I've worked with, then asked them to send me some of their sexy models.
Because sex sells.
- And I'm buyin'.
GREEN EYES: You know what? I think I better get back out there, you know, make sure they don't take off with any inventory.
I guess we won't be working today.
Now that things have slowed down, I'd just like to say to Shay thank you, 'cause we cleaned up.
Well, we all did it together, okay? And that's just the beginning.
We're just getting started.
Where's Bobby? I thought he'd be here today.
Nah, he getting ready to take that bug test.
He's gonna be an exterminator.
What? Bobby with a real job? I've got to see this.
Nah, for real.
He's taking this whole daddy thing serious.
Dad thing? Wh Who he having a baby with? - With Lisa.
- That heifer? Hell nah.
Bobby is not the father of her baby, okay? I know that for a fact.
My friend Faith? Her ex, Greg.
He's the father.
Greg told Faith last week.
Damn! This is gonna crush Bobby.
He about to take this test.
I just don't want him to give up before he even, no Tray, no job is that important.
You need to tell him the truth.
I know.
I know.
I love the boy.
But ever since he found out he was gonna be a Dad, it changed him as a person.
And it's all because of this baby.
You got to tell him.
After he takes the test.
I promise.
All done here, boss.
I guess I'll see you Saturday morning.
Yo, we're gonna move the truck down to the Brooklyn Bites festival.
Try not to be late this time.
All right.
I'll see you Saturday.
Later, Shay.
- All right.
- All right.
Actually, Tray, we should take the truck to Prospect Park on Saturday.
See, there's an outdoor concert going on.
It's classical music, so we could introduce the food to a whole different demographic of people, - plus charge higher prices.
- Mm-hmm.
But if we go to Brooklyn Bites, that's my people, and I want to feed my people.
- Okay, um Tray? - Mm-hmm.
Now that we're partners, I think we should make decisions together.
Yeah, but since it's my food, I think we're gonna run on down to Brooklyn Bites.
Well, since it's my money I'll see on over at Prospect Park.
Everybody's here? Good.
All hands on deck.
Bobby, I need you to go into the park and pass out these flyers.
Let people know where we are, okay? - Babe.
- Huh? I want you to wipe down the whole truck on the outside.
I need it shinin'! [CHUCKLES.]
Green Eyes, I need you to go to the corner, get the trash can, put it in front of the truck so then, that way, our area stays clean and looks more inviting.
All right.
Did I stutter? Get to it.
- All right, all right.
- You could say "please".
Baby, you'll be saying "please" later on tonight when I get in that ass.
Okay, look here.
You sure give a lot of orders.
It's not about being nice, Tray.
When you're in charge, you just got to get things done.
Yeah, but I thought I was in charge.
You are in charge.
Now, get to cooking.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute! - This is gluten-free flour.
- Yeah? Well, gluten-free dishes are gonna be a hit with this crowd.
Yeah, but the theme of this truck is "prison".
And in prison, ain't no such thing as gluten-free.
Tray, you need to expand your vision.
Your thinking is way too limited.
There's a lot more things we can be doing in Brooklyn besides feeding everybody.
Yeah, but I want to feed Brooklyn.
And real Brooklyn wants real flour.
I already put on the flyers that we have gluten-free options.
Yeah, but I'm in charge! It's not about who's in charge.
It's about who knows what they're talking about.
And that's me! [GASPS.]
Yeah, you look crazy in that whiteface, trying to impress my people.
- Oh, you think this is funny? - Yes.
- You think it's funny? - Ha, ha, ha! - "Ha, ha, ha".
- Look at you.
Well, how do you feel, huh? Look at you.
Lookin' like a black geisha.
Don't you, Tray.
Don't Don't you do it.
- Don't you do it, Tray.
- Nah, you asked for it.
No, don't you Don't you Tray! Don't do it! Tray! Stop it! You play too much! [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
Hey Hey, there.
Uh SHAY: How can we help you? I think we pretty much threw away all the profits for today.
That's what I'm talking about, man.
Like, pre-exterminator Bobby? Oh, I'd have loved to see a food fight.
Oh, yeah.
I'd loved that.
You know what I'm sayin'? But right now, I just can't help but think of how that's that's hurting the brand, right? I got to tell you, Bobby.
I'm really impressed with how you're sticking to this new path, - you know? - Thank you.
Thank you.
Especially after Lisa lied to you about it being your baby.
And you stayed strong through the whole thing.
That's That's something.
You should be proud.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What you What you talking about, she she lied lied about the baby? What are you doing? Oh, shit.
No, uh Bobby, I'm sorry.
I assumed that, uh Shannon told me.
I assumed you knew.
And that I'm sorry.
Oh, nah, nah.
Nah, nah, it's cool.
It's cool.
You know what I'm sayin'? I dodged a bullet.
- Yeah.
- Right? Right? I'm sorry.
I really am.
I mean, that's that's great news.
Well I'm sure it's not.
It's good news! I I feel bad, Bobby.
Can you leave that trash, though? I'll take care of it.
H I'll get that! I'll Don't even worry about it! I'll get it! - Shay! - Tray.
Yo, I came over here to let you know how pissed off I was yesterday.
I've decided to find a new investor to buy you and Josh out! Just so I don't have to deal with this no more! - Thank you.
- Tray, I don't want that.
Good, 'cause I don't even know where I was gonna find somebody to buy y'all out.
I don't even know nobody with that kind of money.
- That's a damn shame.
- Mm.
Yo, you know what? The last time I saw you this mad was just before I got locked up.
Remember? And I bought them tickets to the Mary J.
Blige concert.
Yeah, that was a big fight.
I told me I should know you well enough to know that you don't even like concerts, remember? And then the real reason came out is 'cause LaTanya Leggett was gonna be there.
Yeah, that bitch was set trippin', talkin' about she was gonna whup my ass on eyesight.
I love me some Mary, but not enough to be getting no ass-whuppin'.
- So what you scared of now? - Psh.
What? Nothing.
Come on, Shay.
Something's scaring you.
Boy, please.
I ain't scared of nothing except for something happening to my kids and Josh.
Oh, and horses anything that big that'll let you nail shoes into the bottom of their feet and ride them is either stupid or trying to set you up.
I promise you.
I ain't never scared.
I am so, so scared! I just lost my job, and I'm trying to start my own business.
Now, what was I thinking?! You're thinking smart.
You're taking your future into your own hands.
But what if I fail? What if I can't make payroll? Or I hire the wrong marketing team? Ohh, where the kids gonna live?! Okay, okay, okay.
So, in this extreme scenario, I guess Josh is dead? Girl, yeah.
He gets shot by the police for robbing a liquor store 'cause he's trying to feed us - and everything! - [LAUGHS.]
Oh, my God.
Listen, okay? Everything worth doing comes with risks.
Do you think I like being single again? They say women our age have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than finding a meaningful relationship.
Girl, that shit scared me so much, I thought about taking Greg's begging ass back.
- Mnh! - But then it hit me.
I know my worth.
Do you know your worth? Yeah.
I am I am smart.
- Yes, you are.
- I'm talented.
- I'm kind.
- Yes, you are! - I'm a problem-solver.
- Come on! Yeah, and I'm talented.
- Yes, you are.
- Am I really talented? Yes, you're talented! You know, I've been thinking about expanding my business, you know, maybe adding on a partner.
It'd be a lot less scary if I did it with a friend.
- Girl.
- Girl.
- Girl! - You think? Let me get my portfolio so I can show you - some of my sketches.
- Mm-hmm.
And then we can argue about where our office is gonna be.
Oh, no, we definitely gonna be arguing.
- Why?! - Mm-hmm.
Yo, Bob, I owe you an apology, kid.
I should've told you about this chick Lisa sooner.
You know, I didn't have the right to withhold information on you.
I'm just saying I'm sorry.
Look, it's cool.
It's cool, man.
I know you just was lookin' out, all right? Matter of fact, you probably was right.
You know what I'm talkin' about? Yeah.
So what you gonna do now? I mean, yo, buster, you could always come work on the food truck with us, man.
You might have to fight Green Eyes, but it's all good.
You know, I'm gonna do that, man.
But I think I'm gonna still give this bug stuff a try.
You know what I'm sayin'? I'm good at it.
Yes, man.
I'm happy for you, cuz.
And, by the way, man, can you please get your hands on some of that industrial bug spray? 'Cause I'm scared to death to go up in Mullins', man.
You got me thinkin', B.
Say less, yo.
I got you.
Yo! Lisa! Yo, come on down, man.
I've got some stuff for you, baby.
I got to tell you, cuz, man.
For you to be able to forgive somebody - after something like this happens? - Yeah.
And then let Lisa keep the baby stuff? - Man, that's big.
- Yeah.
I'm proud of you.
Don't be.
We gonna burn it down, down, down, down, down We gonna burn it down, down, down, down, down We gonna burn it down, down, down, down, down We gonna burn it down We gonna burn it down, down, down, down, down Bobby! You ignorant, selfish, arsonist motherfucker! - Down, down, we gonna burn it down - Fuck!
