But I understand it now.
Because you've shared your home with me, I want to share with you what has happened to us, to Mary, who I was told by countless doctors would never recover.

I was just gonna say that I felt a burden lift off of us when we came to your town.
For the first time in a long time, we feel safe.
Well, there's no place in the world safer.
- Y'all take care.

No, no pressure.
Just drop by if you can.
Thank you.
- Bye-bye.
- Bye, Lily.
You ask them if they eat meat? I told them it was a barbecue.
If they don't eat meat, that would have been the time to tell me.
Violet wants to know when she can pick me up.
Well, you tell Violet that you will text her as soon as I authorize you to do so.
Hello! Sorry, we rang the doorbell, but nobody answered.
We're back here.
Come on down.
It's Kevin.
You're John, right? Right.
This is Erika.

How are you? Nice to meet you.
Evie, Michael, introduce yourselves.
- How you doing? - Michael.
- I'm Nora.
- Nice to meet you.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- So are we early, or - No, right on time.
Oh, I thought this was a birthday party.
It is.
We don't have any friends.
- Who is this? - This is Lily.
Well, hello, Lily.
- She's adorable.
- Thank you.
Is she adopted or did your mom fuck a black dude? Evie! You don't need that anymore.
You guys bought the house, right? Yeah, but they said that we should leave them on for a couple weeks so the park rangers don't bother us or something.
Your daughter is good with a baby.
That's got to be nice.
Oh, she's not mine.
She's Kevin's.
Oh, well, she's pretty.
So is he.
His secret is moisturizing.
So you have family around here? - Sorry? - In Jarden.
I figured someone must have tipped you off about the house.
Real estate moves pretty quick around here.
Oh, no, we were just in the right place at the right time.
I have a brother, Matt Jamison.
He and his wife came out here a couple months ago.
He's helping out in the Baptist church.
You know him? I just met him yesterday.
Small world.
Cake looks good.
Well, she works the grill, I bake.
Now, what happened to your head? I fell.
Can I can I put these in the fridge? Absolutely.
You want one? Uh, nah.
I don't drink.
But help yourself.
What? What? What? Oh, what were you looking at? I was just looking at your couch in the other room.
We had one just like it.
So I step on the carpet and I feel this squish.
I walk around the corner and trickling down the steps like a fancy fountain is water, but in my house.
So I'm walking up these steps.
And you know when you feel like it's a bad idea, but you do it anyway? I open the bathroom door and this wave comes out.
A little one, but a wave.
And this one is standing in the bathtub with her arms out like Moses and this one's up on the sink trying his hardest not to get wet.
And he just looks at me with this serious face and goes, "Evie wanted to know what would happen.
" Gets funnier every time, Mama.
- How old were they? - Five.
And they're lucky they made it to six.
That must have been fun to come home to.
Well, I was in prison.
Oh, yeah? Well, how long were you there for? Six years, 119 days.
They think you're kidding.
Oh, sorry, no.
I really was.
Travis County Unit.
Go ahead.
- Go ahead and ask.
- What? What I did.
It's what everybody wants to know.
- Oh, that's none of our business.

What happened? Well, didn't try hard enough.

Evie, come back.
Evie, come on, baby.

- I went away? - Mm-hmm.
Um, she has epilepsy.
This doesn't happen unless she forgets to take her meds.
I-I ruined your cake.
No, no, no, no.
It's I burnt it anyway.
The pie! They brought us a pie.
It's on the kitchen counter.
Will you run and get it? Yep.
Yeah, I'll grab it.
Do you have any more candles? Uh uh let me check.
Babe, do we have any more candles back there? Whenever you need an extra pair of hands, you just bring this beautiful thing over.
You'll be sorry you said that.
Thank you.
Thank you so much for having us.
Thank you for stopping by.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better, Kevin.
Yeah, me, too.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Uh, see you later.
Don't open it till I'm gone, okay? Uh, why not? Because it's the greatest present you ever got and I don't want you to make a scene.
