The Lying Game s02e03 Episode Script

Advantage Sutton

A few months ago, I discovered I had a twin sister.
And then she she asked me to take her place, keep the secret, find our real mother and try to stay alive.
Put yourself in my shoes.
How long could you keep up the lying game? All I had to do was get a tire iron and drop it into Mr.
Rybak's bag.
Frame himself for murder? Why would he do that? To throw us off.
I knew Dad was innocent.
And you never listened because he's not your real father.
What will it take to make this right? And if you were to promise me right now that you have told me everything.
I swear you know everything.
I want you to work things out with Kristin.
And I'd like to be there for you.
I hooked up with Jordan.
Now, it turns out he's my new stepbrother.
You should really think about going solo.
It looks really good on you.
Thayer has always been there for me.
You and Sutton are perfect for each other.
So, it's cool if Ethan and I give in to the chemistry between us? Yeah.
What took you so long? Aw, crap.
Morning, sleepyhead.
God, what did I do? Me.
Several times, actually.
Don't you remember? I was really drunk.
Ow, I wasn't thinking.
Um, we've both know we've been thinking about doing that for a while now.
It was only a matter of time.
I never should've come here.
What are you doing? I thought we'd spend the day together.
I've got school.
Well, you had a good time last night though, didn't you? That's not the point, okay? It was a mistake, Sutton.
Can I have my shirt back? This is because of Emma, isn't it? I'm I'm just really sorry about the whole thing, okay? Well, you didn't seem to be too sorry last night.
I I know y you're right.
You're right and that just was not fair to you.
I realize that and, um I promise it won't happen again.
You really shouldn't have left the party so early.
You still had guests to entertain.
Like Laurel Mercer? Admit it: she's just a way for you to get closer to her dad.
Maybe, but I'd play along if I were you.
'Cause it be a real shame if some of your past mistakes were to come to light.
Wouldn't it? You know what? We can talk about this later.
'Cause you're late for school.
I hate it when you get parental on me.
Sutton? How many times do I have to tell you? I'm sorry, but this is an emergency.
I slept with Ethan.
That's not an emergency.
Unless, of course, you didn't use protection? No, I did.
He he freaked out this morning.
And told me that he wished it didn't happen.
I'm so sorry, Sutton.
Boys can be so cruel.
This is her fault.
If I could just get rid of Emma, Ethan will forget about her.
She's your sister.
Someday we're going to be a family again.
And you need to get along with her.
He's holding out hope for her.
Just like your father.
Holding out hope for Kristin.
Amazing how you can make my problems all about you.
The truth is, you could learn by my example.
Ted and I kind of had a moment last night.
Yay for you.
Yay for you too.
If you follow my lead.
I don't give up so easily, and neither should you.
All right, thanks for the ride, man.
Where the hell you been all night? Screwing up like usual.
You know? I had to hitch a ride.
You're damn right you screwed up.
Your teacher called.
Mr.
Beattie? You plagiarize a paper? Sounds like you already know the answer to that.
Yeah, he ran it through some software.
Found out it was bought online.
Dan, I know I shouldn't have done that, okay? Save it, Ethan.
I can't let you go back to juvie.
So I got Beattie to give you a second chance.
You're going to take an exam on all the coursework.
It's real simple: you pass the test, you pass the course.
Okay, thanks.
When is the test? Tomorrow morning.
It's tomorrow morning? How am I going to pass a test tomorrow morning? I don't know, but you better figure it out because your whole life depends on it.
What happened to your eye? I'm just making friends.
Everybody in jail loves the D.
A.
Let me get this straight.
Dan, our Dan, came up with this crazy theory that I'm trying to frame myself? You know it makes more sense than your own theory.
After all, it was a man who called the waitress to set you up.
Rebecca could've done that.
She could've hired someone.
Or you made the call yourself.
I thought you were trying to represent me here.
The objective was to get me out of jail.
Whose side are you on? When you hired me, you told me that if you could convince me of your innocence, you could convince a jury too.
Well I'm not as convinced as I used to be.
Pull the waitress's phone records.
That'll prove I didn't make the call.
Dan's already on it.
Should have them this afternoon.
You know, Theresa, you really ought to keep your eye on the ball.
Rebecca's pulling the strings on this one.
Not me.
I heard the strange ringtone and I found this hidden in the garage.
- A cell phone? - Yeah.
I thought the police already searched your whole house.
Well, I know, it's weird that they didn't find it, but it's got to be my dad's, so I have to turn it in.
No, hold on, we need to check it and see who he called.
I already did.
All incoming calls were blocked.
And if he made any calls out, he cleared the log.
Can't you hack into it and see what he deleted? But that might be considered tampering with evidence.
Thayer, this is going to be our only way we're gonna know what he's been up to all this time.
Please? Can you just try? Okay.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Aren't they adorable? I can't believe they finally got together.
She's coming.
Uh, act natural.
Oh, hi.
- Hey, how's everything? - Hey.
Everything is fine.
Were you spying on me? Us? No.
Just came in here to brush my hair.
With my brush? Okay, we were totally spying.
Oh, my God.
You and Thayer this is awesome.
Way to hold firm, Laurel.
Mads, you should've come out and talked to him.
Especially after what happened last night.
Well, his lips seemed pretty busy just now.
So, I figured I'd do it later.
Okay, listen, not to make this all about me, but I need to ask you guys a question.
What do you think about me asking Jordan out? Okay terrible idea.
No How well do you know him? What? You think he's out of my league? No, of course not.
I just think that I think you guys'd be great together.
You should totally go for it.
No reason not to.
This is disgusting! What is this? God! - What's going on? - Are you okay? Well, the sink is clogged.
Ew, well, maybe Dad could fix it.
No, I don't want to have to rely on him right now.
I can take care of this myself.
But I thought therapy went well.
That doesn't mean we are getting back together.
Have you tried the disposal? Maybe that'll clear it? That is a very good idea.
You see, girls? We can handle this ourselves.
Oh, my God.
Um, I'll call a plumber.
Dude.
You and Sutton Mercer back together again, huh? Look, I might've seen her when I dropped you at the cabin.
I mean, that girl moves fast.
Nothing happened, okay? No, like literally fast.
Like The Flash.
You know, she was at the party one minute, then the cabin the next.
She must've taken a shortcut.
So, she races down there for a secret rendezvous, and you guys don't even hook up? Come on, you don't really expect me to believe that, do you? Jordan, you need to keep your mouth shut.
All right? You didn't see anything.
Got it? Got it.
She wasn't there.
And she's definitely not down the hall either.
Ladies.
He was totally checking you out.
Ew, he's my stepbrother.
Regardless, you have to tell Laurel that you hooked up with him.
You heard her this morning.
She was talking about asking him out.
It was a meaningless one-time thing, and we've agreed never to speak about it again.
It's like it didn't even happen.
But it did happen.
I'm late for Bio.
Cleaning out? Dropping out, actually.
Beattie found out I plagiarized that World Civ paper.
So, now I'm history.
Not that it's any your business.
Well, won't you go back to juvie.
Well, maybe that's where I belong.
No, Ethan, there has to be something you can do.
Yeah, there's a test I'd have to pass tomorrow on all the course material, but I can't do that because I'm too far behind, which is why I cheated in the first place.
Wait.
What? I'll tutor you.
Why do you even care? After everything I did.
Aren't you with Thayer now? Oh, come on.
This has nothing to do with him.
This is about your future.
You can't just give up.
Please, just let me help you.
Whoa, oops.
Excuse me.
Let me help.
Oh, my gosh, I'm such a klutz.
Maybe they should put warning labels on these things.
You're hilarious.
Um, hey, look, I know this is really short notice, um, but DJ Beat Baron is spinning tonight at Hangar 19.
And I was thinking of going.
Would you want to come? I didn't even know that Beat Baron was in town.
His mixes are so sick.
So, you in? Yeah, for sure.
Um, pick up around 7:00? It's a date.
I mean, a date in the calendar sense of the word.
Right.
All right, I'll see you then.
Okay.
Woo.
Mads, I thought you said you wanted to apologize.
I am apologizing.
For last night, but not for thinking Dad's innocent.
I told you, he said I don't care what he said.
He's playing you just like he plays everyone.
Guys? Everything okay? Yeah, fine.
No, it's not fine.
Rebecca, tell him about the fingerprint they found on the golf bag.
They can prove that Dad's been set up, just like he's been saying all along.
Well, I didn't want to get anybody's hopes up, but things are looking a lot better now.
Well, I wouldn't pop that champagne just yet.
Excuse me, guys.
I have work to do.
Wait.
We weren't finished talking.
Thayer, stay.
Why don't we all go to dinner together? My treat.
Sutton and I are playing tennis tonight.
She has regionals coming up.
Sorry.
He just won't listen.
Oh, he'll come around.
Mads, it's you that I'm actually worried about.
Between all of this, your dad being in jail, living at the Mercers while they're going through divorce.
Well, Ted and Kristin are actually in therapy now.
So, things seem better.
Really? Yeah.
That's so good to hear.
Oh, good, you made it.
I didn't think you would get here so Wait a second.
I told the girls specifically not to call you.
Really? 'Cause Laurel made it sound like you were practically begging me to come over.
Did they clog the drain too? Wouldn't put it past them our girls.
Pretty crafty.
Aww, what is this? Lamb chops, some kind of fish, chicken.
What are you thinking, piccata? Parmigiana.
Mmm.
Kill for a home-cooked meal, not that I'm hinting at anything.
Don't you think it's a little early for that? Right.
Speaking of which, I spoke to Dr.
Sandy's office.
She said she has a time for us Monday at 10:00? I actually have another appointment at that time.
And I'm not I'm not sure that I want to cancel it, so No pressure, that's fine.
Just let me know.
I have to rent a rooter for this, - so can you wait till tomorrow? - Sure.
The call to Jessica Whitman was made from a burner cell, so chances are it's been destroyed by now.
In other words, anyone could've called her, including Alec.
Which is why I called his secretary to check his schedule that day.
And from that look, I'm guessing you found something.
He took off early.
Was gone all afternoon.
Didn't say where.
Huh, suspicious.
Yeah, huh.
I'm so sorry.
I have to bail on you for tennis.
Something came up.
Well, whatever it is, it should wait because I found out who my dad called with that cell phone.
Apparently, he made one call to a Jessica Whitman.
Number's been disconnected, but I figured we could work together and try and find her.
I can't tonight.
But but you can do it without me.
I'll call you later, okay? Wait, they're getting along now? I thought they hated each other.
That was during the Seven Years' War.
After World War I, France and England were allies.
Well, how am I supposed to keep this stuff straight if even they can't decide who likes who? This is worse than high school.
Maybe if you just focus and put the ball down.
I am focused.
I really am.
But I am focusing on how this is going to be a huge waste of my time.
You're right.
I can't teach you if you don't want to learn.
So have fun in juvie.
All right, wait, wait.
Hang on a second, okay? I just feel like I don't deserve this.
What? Your help.
Okay.
You made a mistake, Ethan.
And now you have a chance to make it right.
Ethan, I believe in you.
Emma, I have to tell you something.
I Well, hope I'm not interrupting anything.
Sutton, are you crazy? Oh, would you relax? I checked to make sure Dan was still at work.
I was stopping by to see if Ethan wanted to join me for dinner, but, apparently, he has plans.
It's not what you think, all right? I've I've got a test tomorrow.
We're we're studying.
She's helping me.
Oh, well, that's really sweet.
I approve.
Seriously? Yes, seriously, we don't want lover boy to end up back in juvie now, do we? Lover boy? Oh, come on.
It's a figure of speech.
We really have a lot of work to do right now.
Okay, well, then I will leave you these.
Just for a little snack.
For later.
It's from that favorite barbeque place you like.
Good luck tomorrow.
He doesn't need luck.
He has me.
You should have seen her.
Playing all innocent.
I'm telling you that if I would have stayed there, Alec wouldn't be the only one in jail for murder.
You're going to be a lot happier after you hear what I have to say.
What could you possibly say that would make me feel better? I want you to take your life back from Emma.
Since when is switching back ever been part of the plan? It's just there's only so much I can do to keep Ted and Kristin apart.
So, you want me to work from the inside to split them up? Well, think about it this way: Emma will be here in isolation, while you're out and about, which means you'll have Ethan all to yourself.
You know she's not going to do this willingly Mmm, you're going to have to find a way to persuade her.
Don't let me down, pumpkin.
Mads.
Hi.
Am I at the right house? Yeah, I'm just staying here for a little bit.
Come on in.
Laurel, uh, should be ready in a minute.
Sorry, I didn't realize you'd be here.
Guess this is kind of awkward.
Why would it be awkward? Gotcha.
All set.
Thanks for entertaining him.
Yeah, not a problem.
You two have fun.
Hey, do you want to come? Uh, I can't.
I don't want to impose.
Are you kidding? We're just hanging out.
Mm-hmm.
But I thought No, you should come.
It's not like it's a date or anything.
Jordan, can you give us a sec? Okay, now you have to come with us.
No, I'm so not in the mood.
You were the one who told me to ask him out, and now I'm totally confused.
If you come along, you can help me figure out whether or not he's really into me or not.
Please? Fine.
- For the record - Let's roll.
Not a word.
You left work early the day that call to Jessica Whitman was made.
The only thing I'm guilty of is leaving work early to play some golf.
And before you say anything, you're not allowed to have cell phones on the golf course, okay? We should get out next week.
What do you say? You free? She is.
You aren't.
Oh, think again, Danny Boy.
I've got a witness that'll back me up.
You two just gave me a get-out-of-jail-free card.
Hey, sis.
You were out late.
Oh, you scared the crap out of me, Sutton.
Hey, you know, you should really get these re-strung every now and then.
What do you think you're doing? You can't go play tennis.
You're supposed to be staying out of sight.
And you're supposed to be practicing for regionals, but that doesn't seem to stop you from going over to Ethan's and tutoring him.
I knew you were upset about that.
Oh, I'm not upset.
I'm thrilled that you're helping him.
Mm-hmm.
I just don't want to lose regionals either.
You know, a lot is riding on it: a chance to play D-1 tennis, and scholarship.
Since when has any of that mattered to you? Since I had a lot of time to think up at that cabin.
And the fact of the matter is, you and I are both going to have to go to college someday.
Well, don't worry.
I'm ready for the tournament.
And I'm gonna win the scholarship.
Yeah, but a little bit of practice wouldn't hurt.
So, I was thinking, I can just give you some pointers.
We go out tomorrow.
Just for fun.
Someone will see us, Sutton.
Then, we'll do it across town.
No one will recognize us.
What is the big deal? Why is this so important to you? Geez, just thought I'd spend some quality time with my sister, but if you're not interested.
No.
Actually, I would love to.
You're on, sis.
Thanks for coming down.
Actually, I was already planning on talking to you.
About what? Well, you first.
You said it was important.
Well, we need you to make a statement.
Some new evidence has come to light.
Someone called a waitress at the club and paid her to plant the tire iron in your father's golf bag.
- Wait.
Somebody called? - Yeah.
What was the waitress's name? Jessica Whitman.
Whoever called her set your father up, Thayer.
Oh, my God.
Dan, he wasn't set up.
He's the one who called.
Hello, T.
- What the hell? - It's okay, Thayer.
We just need to ask you some questions.
Well, I've got some questions of my own.
Like how do you explain this, for example? Dad? How can you say you've never seen that phone before? - I found it in our house.
- If it was there the whole time, why didn't the police find it when the searched the house? They must have missed it.
Come on.
Look, whoever planted the phone there, planted it there after the search.
And then they called it to be sure you'd find it.
Or maybe you just screwed up.
And you didn't hide it as well as you think you did.
I'm no fool, son.
- But you're a murderer.
- Okay, that's enough.
This isn't getting us anywhere.
I got the lab results.
Our techs confirmed that it is indeed the cell phone used to call Jessica Whitman.
Ouch.
Case closed.
They also determined that the call to Jessica was made from Flagstaff, Arizona.
Weren't we playing golf the exact time that phone call was made? Yeah, it was a Friday, right? I remember it 'cause you beat me by one you birdied 18.
- I know.
I remember.
- So how could I be playing golf with you in Scottsdale, and also be in Flagstaff, I don't know.
Maybe you hired someone.
Or maybe there's two of me.
Well, it backfired.
'Cause we got enough to go to the judge and get the charges against you dropped.
Oh, my God.
No, no, no, please, please, - you can't let him out.
- T, face it You were wrong about everything, and the only mistake I made was taking your bastard ass in when nobody else gave a crap about you.
- Hey, hey, hey! - Okay, okay Let's go.
Let's go.
Let's go.
Damn it.
This can't be happening right now.
You dad's getting out whether you like it or not.
You need to find a way to deal with that.
Now go home and cool off.
Hi, this is Lindsey Ridgeway's office reminding you of your appointment for Monday at 10:00 a.
m.
Please call us back to confirm.
You're still going to meet with your divorce attorney? I don't know.
Maybe.
It turns out we have a therapy session the exact same time, so I do have to cancel one of them.
Do I get a vote on which one? Oh, I already know your vote, thank you very much, and don't think I don't know what you girls were up to with the whole plumbing thing.
You are not as clever as you think you are.
The point is, we would do anything to keep this family intact.
And canceling on the divorce attorney is hardly going to extremes.
I like this place.
What do you think, Mads? I think there's too many people trying too hard to be cool, but I'm not surprised you like it.
Excuse me? She's just kidding.
You were just kidding, right? Yes, and you would know, Laurel, because you have an amazing sense of humor, an infectious laugh, great personality - Stop.
- Some might say that she is the total package.
Well, don't sell yourself short.
Ugh.
Well, thank you, stepbrother.
I'm gonna go to the bar.
Anyone want a drink? Sure.
You want any help? No.
You stay here with Laurel.
I'll get the drinks.
- Well, at least let me buy.
- I really don't want your money.
Hey, I'm sorry.
Did I do something wrong? Ha! There she goes again.
Hey, I'll just take a water.
If that's cool.
What're you gonna drink, Mads? A Cosmo? Sex on the beach? You know what? I'm gonna go home.
He's all yours.
You two enjoy your evening.
Um, I'm really sorry.
I have no idea what just happened.
Forget about it.
It's fine.
Let's dance.
Hey.
- Hi.
- You playing today? No, I was just warming up.
I'm actually headed across town to have a match with Sutton.
- Seriously? - Mm-hmm.
It was her idea.
I'm sure she has some sort of ulterior motive.
You guys are gonna just be alone together? Yes, we're gonna be alone together.
I can't wait to hear what she has on her mind.
Hey how did your test go? Uh, 73.
I passed.
- That's awesome.
- Yeah, well, I had a pretty good tutor.
You think you might want to keep helping me with that stuff? So I can stay a free man.
Yeah, I can do that.
Yeah.
All right.
Thanks.
Come here.
I'm so happy for you.
Hey what's going on here? Um, I was just thanking her for helping me.
Uh, she tutored me.
Tutoring you? Yeah.
I thought you knew.
Uh, no, actually.
Wait, hold on.
So last night that's where you had to go? The test was today.
Wow.
You know what? It doesn't matter.
Thayer Alec is getting out? The judge is signing off on it now.
It's obvious that he was framed.
Of course.
By whom? Well, the call to the waitress came from Flagstaff, Arizona.
Does that mean anything to you? Flagstaff, uh, no.
Not at all.
Anyway, he should be out by this evening.
You two should celebrate.
Yes, I thought this day would never come.
Thank you so much, Theresa.
Hey, Ted, I just got - the most amazing news.
- Really? What? Alec's being released.
- Really? - Yeah.
Wow.
That I didn't expect that.
Neither was I.
Actually.
Well why are you so upset? I'm scared, Ted.
It's just whenever I've gone to see Alec in jail, I've gotten the feeling that he might blame me for his arrest.
Well, that's ridiculous.
You've been more supportive than anyone.
Yeah, well you know how he gets.
His temper.
Well, if you are that afraid, why don't you leave town? Go back to L.
A.
? You don't really mean that? I thought that You thought wrong.
I see.
Well, I can't run away, not again.
I mean, everything I love is here.
My roots are here.
My family is here.
You mean Jordan? Who else would I mean? Well, I'm, I'm sorry.
I shouldn't have fallen apart on you like this.
And I thank you for being there for me.
Thayer, hi.
It's Emma again.
Are you okay? Please call me back.
Trouble in paradise? Are you sure nobody's gonna recognize us here? Please, anyone worth knowing wouldn't be caught dead here.
All right.
You serve.
I'm sure you haven't played in a while.
Always so considerate, Emma.
Well, care to make things interesting? Well, what did you have in mind? Well, whoever wins is obviously the best player, so she should be the one that plays at regionals.
So that's what this is about.
You want to switch back.
For a few days.
Just for regionals.
Unless, of course, you're too scared, then you don't have to.
Oh, I'm not scared.
You should be scared, 'cause I will wipe these courts with you.
Feisty, Emma.
Fine.
We have a deal? No, actually, I have some of my own terms.
Whoever loses has to stay in the cabin.
For real this time.
Can't step foot out of it.
Understand? Good luck.
May the best sister win.
Oh, I will.
Oh, hey.
I wanted to apologize for last night.
I, um, - I guess I kind of screwed things up.
- Oh, no.
Leaving was the best thing you could've done.
I never should've asked you to come along.
Oh, so things worked out with you and Jordan? We danced for a while and talked for, like, hours about music and bands and life.
He's so sweet and cute.
I think we're gonna go out again next week.
Awesome.
Well, I'm really happy for you.
Me, too.
You're the best.
Hey, Thayer.
What's up? What? That's me on the first set.
6-2.
You're on fire.
Well, we can quit if you want.
No, no.
I'm just a little off.
Haven't really been getting much sleep this week.
That's 'cause you're running around town when you should be up at that cabin just relaxing.
Yeah, well, it's kind of hard to relax when Ethan just drops by in the middle of the night.
Excuse me.
Oh after Jordan's party, he stopped by, and you said it was fine, so I slept with him.
You're cool with that, right? Yeah, whatever.
He can he can do what he wants.
Good, 'cause I totally thought you'd be, like, really upset.
I'm not.
Obviously.
My serve.
Hey.
The, um, the cam, um Chain tensioner.
Yeah, that's the one.
Do you mind taking a look at it? All right.
Sutton's not here, is she? Why would she be? Just asking.
Never seem to know where she's gonna pop up next.
It didn't sound like your tensioner, but, um, we're probably gonna check your plugs out, all right? What's the deal with you guys anyways? Look, it's, uh it's complicated.
Okay, she used to be one person and now she's someone else.
And you don't know which one you like more.
- Something like that, yeah.
- Chicks.
Even when you know they're completely wrong for you, you still can't stop thinking about them.
Sounds to me like you're the one with the problem.
Yeah, tell me about it.
But hey, I did see Sutton at the cabin.
She's into you, man.
Like, hardcore into you.
If I were you, I wouldn't overthink it.
If I were you, I wouldn't either.
Emma! Mads? Time-out.
Thank God I found you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
What's the matter? Thayer just called to say good-bye.
He's moving back to L.
A.
I guess things got pretty ugly between him and my dad.
Oh, I knew something was wrong with him.
Uh-oh.
Drama.
I really wanted to make peace between them, but he won't listen to me, and Emma, I think you might be the only person who can keep him here.
And you've got to hurry 'cause he's packing right now.
Tick-tock.
Congratulations, Sutton.
You win.
I forfeit.
Thayer.
You shouldn't have come, Emma.
I don't understand.
What happened with Alec? He won, like he always does.
He's getting out of jail, so I can't stay here anymore.
What, he's getting out? How? That phone I found exonerated him.
Can you believe that? Okay well, you don't have to leave.
I mean, you could stay someplace else.
Emma, I don't really live here.
I only came back to help you and Sutton, but every single time I do, it always leads back to my father, and I can't, I can't beat him.
It's killing me.
I'm sorry.
You know what, the truth is, there is nothing left for me here anymore.
What about me? I'm I'm sorry I didn't tell you about Ethan, but It's not about that.
I want you to come with me.
Uh uh Thayer, I can't do that.
The Mercers are the only family I've ever known.
I can't leave them right now.
Well, I can't I can't stay either.
So then that's it? Maybe it's for the best.
No, I I Take care of yourself.
See? Good as new.
Guess I'll just get out of your way.
Ted, about that counseling session on Monday.
I'll be there.
What about your other appointment? I canceled it.
That's good to hear, but I hope you brought your checkbook, ma'am, 'cause you've rung up quite a hefty plumbing bill.
Chicken parmigiana? Leftovers.
Looks like everything is getting back to normal around here.
Yes, your father fixed the drain.
I wasn't talking about the plumbing.
Do you want me to get Laurel? You know, honestly, I can't figure you out.
One minute, you're hot; the next minute, you're cold.
Do you even know what you want? What about you? You're practically stalking me.
I am not interested, okay? Oh, is that right? Yeah.
Well, I love the smell of freedom in the evening.
The press is at the other entrance, just like you requested.
Perfect.
There'll be plenty of time for grandstanding later.
Do you need a lift home? No.
I've got a stop to make.
Tell my wife I'm coming for her.
You were in Flagstaff? You were supposed to make that call from the golf course so no one would question it.
No, I don't want you to do anything.
Alec will be here any minute.
I know exactly how to handle him.
Hey, baby, I'm home.
Darling, I've missed you so much.
I'll bet.
God, you scare easily.
Well, what do you expect? There's a murderer out there.
Hey, so, I'm really sorry about the Thayer thing.
Tough break, but a deal's a deal.
And if you remember, not one foot outside of the cabin.
Your terms, I recall.
And what if I refuse? You wouldn't dare.
Try me.
Shoot.
I was afraid this would happen.
See, I'm not going to go either, so I think we're gonna just have to tell the family our big secret, which is going to be really tough because Kristin, I don't really know how she's going to react.
She's very fragile right now.
You're bluffing.
Try me.
Fine.
I'm leaving, but Ted and Kristin are making really good progress, so just promise me that you'll keep pushing them in the right direction.
Yes! Of course! They're my parents.
You think I don't want them together? All right, I'll see you in a couple days.
I left some clean towels for you at the cabin.
You may need them.
See, I can be considerate too, Emma.
Good luck at regionals.
I don't need luck.
