The Ranch (2016) s04e11 Episode Script

It Ain't My Fault

The fuck you doing here? [GUNSHOT.]
What the hell are you doing here? I'm making sure Mary's okay.
What are you doing here? I've got some unfinished business with Nick.
I'll make sure Mary's okay, get outta here.
If we're gonna confront this guy, it makes sense to have backup.
Even Starsky needed Hutch.
I hated that show.
Law enforcement officers should have tighter haircuts.
Seriously, I got your back, all right? I can handle my business.
Yeah, well, be careful.
The more people there are, the more this turns into a shit show.
What the hell are you doing here? I'm guessing the same thing as you.
Is he in there? Somebody's in there.
Who, I don't know.
- You don't need to be here.
- Yeah, fuck that.
Let's go.
Okay, we got no plan, but we all got guns.
What could go wrong? I can pick that lock.
What the hell ? Jesus Christ, Mary.
You okay? - Where's Nick? - We got in a fight, and he left.
Hold on, hey, did he do this to you? What are you doing here? You're shooting up now? Colt.
- No - Get her out of here.
I don't want you to see me like this.
Hey, it's okay.
It's okay, you're safe now.
Come on.
- Ow.
Oh, God.
- Let's get out of here.
You guys coming? Not till I see Nick.
And you think that's a good idea? We'll see you at home.
Cowboys ain't easy to love And they're harder to hold And they'd rather give you a song Than diamonds or gold Lone Star belt buckles And old faded Levis And each night begins a new day If you don't understand him And he don't die young He'll probably just ride away Mamas, don't let your babies Grow up to be cowboys Don't let 'em pick guitars Or drive them old trucks Let 'em be doctors and lawyers And such Mamas, don't let your babies Grow up to be cowboys Oh, my God, Mom What are you doing here? Luke told me what happened, and I came right over.
We're so glad you're okay.
Okay, hey, let's get you off your feet.
Sit you down.
I wasn't sure if you'd be hungry, but I made some soup and some grilled cheese.
There's bacon in the grilled cheese.
In the soup too, 'cause Beau likes bacon.
Yeah, I'm not hungry, thanks.
Oh, okay.
Hold on, Luke's got a taste for bacon.
Please don't be mad at me.
I'm not mad.
I was just scared.
I mean Nick's a piece of shit, Mom.
Why did you go back to him? I know, okay, it was stupid.
Yeah, it was stupid.
Every time that guy comes back into your life, he just fucks it all up.
And you become this person that, honestly, I hate.
I hate it too, okay? [STAMMERS.]
You guys weren't talking to me, Darlene's out of town, I didn't have anybody else to call.
I'm sorry, I fucked it up again.
I'm sorry, okay? Hey.
You don't have to say sorry.
All right? Why not stop thinking about what happened, and start thinking about what's next? That's right.
I'm glad you're here.
Listen, do you want to maybe lay down? I mean, I'm sure you're exhausted.
The only thing I've ever shot up is the flu vaccine, but, man, I was wiped out.
What? It gives you flu-like symptoms, I don't know You want to get set up in our room? Oh, yeah, and then when you wake up, maybe Joanne can whip up another batch of these great sandwiches.
Maybe the next round could have jalapeño in it.
Yeah, do you think I could take a shower? - Of course.
- Of course.
Yeah, here, come on.
I'll get you all settled in, and then I can go back to my apartment and get your stuff.
Don't be alarmed by the gun in the shower, it's Beau's soap dispenser.
I'll get you one of Colt's body scrubs.
He does mark all the bottles with a line, but you can just add Dial.
I do it all the time.
Whatever's in the gun is fine.
Oh, and the Jim Beam bottle is conditioner.
Where is Colt and Beau? Shouldn't they be right behind you? Well, actually, they didn't want to leave.
They're waiting for Nick.
Jesus Christ.
And you just let them stay there? What do you want me to do? They're grown men.
And they just wanna talk to him.
Okay, next time you lie, come up with something more convincing than "Beau wants to talk to somebody.
You know, this isn't going to bring Rooster back.
What? I hate this asshole as much as you do.
But we've both got more important things waiting for us at home.
I promised Joanne I'd take care of her.
I can't do that from behind bars.
All right.
Then leave.
You ain't gotta be here.
What about Abby and Peyton? They need you.
Not Peyton.
All I've been thinking about, ever since we got here, is how this thing plays out.
Maybe Nick ends up in a grave.
Maybe one of us does.
Maybe we end up in jail.
Best case scenario, we get away with it.
But then we have to live with it for the rest of our lives.
So, what? This asshole beats Mary.
Gets her hooked on heroin.
He's responsible for Rooster's death.
He just gets to keep living in our town? Running into my wife and kid at the pharmacy? Fuck that.
I ain't gonna lose any sleep over this piece of shit.
C'mon, Colt.
I'm done.
He's gonna get what he deserves.
- Are you sure it's okay if I'm in here? - Of course.
You know, just follow the few house rules: make your bed, use a coaster on the wood, no heroin.
I'm so sorry about all this.
Stop saying that.
I should apologize to you.
You told me you were scared and I sent you right back to that asshole.
That's 'cause I stole your truck, and I sold it for drugs.
Yeah, it doesn't matter anymore.
I also forged your signature on credit cards.
I don't care, what's done is done.
And I sold your Netflix password online.
You monster.
How could you? God, everybody's being so nice to me, and I have done nothing to deserve that.
Well, Mary we care about you.
The best part about getting high is not that I feel good.
It's just It's like I get to stop feeling bad.
Look, you know none of us deal with shit the right way.
I could list everything I've dealt with wrong.
That is if you've got two or three years to spare.
Six months ago, I was in night school, I was running a bar, I was watching my grandkids grow up, you know? I just want to get my life back together.
I've been thinking You know, it takes 90 days for that divorce paperwork to go through, so technically, you're still on my VA insurance.
That'll cover rehab.
You even get $5,000 if I were to die.
I'm glad you didn't know that a week ago.
Look, I appreciate that, but you have done more than enough for me.
How long does it take to get that five grand? Seriously, I want to help.
I want you to have the best chance at getting better.
Mostly 'cause I care about you, but also I want you to stop stealing my shit.
I didn't know this when I married you, but you are a good guy.
Get some rest.
It's gonna be okay.
Or not.
I don't fucking know.
How is she? Oh, she's doing okay.
We're gonna get her back into rehab.
That's great.
Just a tip from my experience with my daughter: don't pay the whole stay up-front.
Colt and Beau back yet? No, still no word.
I don't know if I should just go over there, or call the police, but I know I can't sit here.
Whoa, you're not going anywhere.
I'll go back over there and see what's happening.
Just don't take a gun, okay? But do take a scarf, 'cause it is getting chilly out.
I'm a mom now, I worry about these things.
I'm turning into my mom.
Let's go home.
Thank God.
Hello? Hold on, I'll be right there.
Sheriff's Department.
If there's anyone in there, come out with your hands where I can see 'em.
Bennett? Is there anyone else in the trailer? Yeah, Nick.
He's dead.
- Colt is still not answering.
- Yeah, neither's Beau.
But he never does answer, even when I changed my name to John Elway in his phone.
If Colt does something stupid, I am going to kill him, and he can forget about me scattering his ashes at Mile High, I will go to the Oakland Coliseum.
I don't give a fuck.
- Hey.
- Oh, hey, Mary.
Hey, how are you feeling? Uh A little better, yeah.
Not gonna lie, once you've done heroin, everything else is pretty much "meh.
" - Hey.
- Oh, thank God you're okay.
Didn't you see John Elway texted you? There is one L in Elway.
Who gives a shit? Text him back.
- Did you run into Nick? - Yeah, where's Colt? Colt's not back yet? We waited for Nick at the trailer, and then we thought better of it and left.
I drove around for a while.
Ended up in the same spot where Rooster went off the road.
Colt should've beat me here by now.
Oh my God, he went back.
We don't know that.
Maybe he's at the bar having a drink, or in his truck having a drink, or at the Dairy Queen having a drink.
One thing we know for sure, he's drinking.
- Hey.
- [ABBY.]
Did you find Colt? And is he drinking? I got to the trailer, and Colt's been arrested.
What happened? There's no easy way to say this, but Nick's been killed.
Oh, my God! Goddammit! He was shot, and the cops think Colt did it.
Jesus Christ! Oh shit! Colt never would've been there if it wasn't for me.
No, it's not your fault.
Yeah - Where are you going? - I'm sorry, but I'm done with this.
I'm done with him.
- Hey, Colt.
- Oh man, thank God.
I didn't do it.
Well, then you're gonna have to walk me through what happened, 'cause Nick's dead, and you were the only person in there.
All right, this is gonna sound bad, but We found out Nick was back in town, so me, and my dad, and Luke, we went over there.
Why were you going over there? To kill him.
I told you it was gonna sound bad.
But we didn't do it.
We got there, and he wasn't there, and me and my dad were like, "This piece of shit ain't even worth it," so we just upped and left.
Then why were you in the trailer? 'Cause I went back.
Okay, that sounds bad, too.
Here's the thing, I was driving my truck, and I'm like This motherfucker, right? So I turn around, and I went back, but not to kill him, I just wanna tell him to get out of town, and leave Mary and my family alone.
You had a gun in your truck.
Everyone in this town's got a gun in their truck.
Like, even Father McGinty.
Father McGinty has a gun? He's on parole! Look, I'm innocent.
I didn't even fire my gun.
I mean, you can check.
You know what, hook me up to a lie detector, I'll do it right now.
You just can't ask me if I hooked up with any of your girlfriends in high school.
Or if I think that beard looks good.
All right, look.
You admit you went to go kill a guy, left, then went back, and now he's dead.
I'm supposed to tell my captain that? Hell, I can't even convince him I didn't take the last bear claw.
To his credit, he is right.
I guess that's how you get to be captain.
Man, I I didn't do it.
I'll it say it again.
I Whoever killed Nick must have done it while I was out driving around.
Well, did you stop anywhere? Did you talk to anyone? Stopped at a gas station, got a Snickers.
So then the clerk saw you.
No, the clerk was in the back.
I was hungry, so I was like, "Why wait?" So I just stole it.
So your alibi is, you couldn't have killed Nick, 'cause you were robbing a gas station? Slow down, okay? Shoplifting is not robbing.
I'm not Father McGinty.
All right, look, you gotta give me something.
We're not talking about stealing a generator, or being drunk in public.
A guy was killed! - This is big news in a small town.
- Look Wait, this isn't the right time, but, damn, "Big News in a Small Town" is a great title for a country song, am I right? Yeah.
Oh, Luke Bryan'd crush that.
Big news in a small town [AUDIENCE LAUGHS.]
Look, I C'mon, man.
You know me.
You know I didn't do this.
We've known each other our whole lives.
All right, look.
Let me go look into some stuff.
Maybe they had cameras at the gas station.
Oh shit, they definitely do.
I know because last year I drove off with one of them gas pumps hanging out my tank That video went viral.
Southwest almost used it for one of them "Wanna Get Away?" commercials.
All right, keep me posted.
What'd Jerry say? He's on his way down to the station.
Said he's gonna get to talk to Colt because he's his lawyer.
None of us are gonna be able to see him.
Has he ever handled a murder case? Said he handled one in Oklahoma once.
Probably why he's practicing in Colorado.
How's she doing? Good, I just got her back to sleep.
I mixed a little whiskey with some NyQuil.
I suppose if it's safe for kids Yeah, it worked for my daughter.
Oh God, I was her first dealer.
- Oh, my God! - What are you doing here? [LAUGHS.]
I'm a free man.
Yeah, do the cops know you're a free man or ? They cleared me, 'cause I didn't do it.
We left there together.
Why the fuck did you go back there? You know how stupid that was? I know, all right? You ain't gotta yell at me.
Only reason I went back was I I thought I was going to lose my other son.
That ain't gonna happen.
That was very touching.
Hank, what the fuck are you doing here? My truck got impounded, so Hank Uber'd me home.
He needs to use the bathroom.
The bathroom.
See ya.
So, how'd the cops clear you? It's like a miracle brought down by the baby Jesus.
So when Nick got shot, one of the neighbors called the police, and at the exact same time, I was on one of them overhead cameras at the gas station, so But I understand why I was a suspect.
I was washing my windshield, and my tricep just looked looked It was dangerous.
So who do they think killed Nick? They don't know.
Well, that guy's such a piece of shit that everyone in this town would want to kill him.
Actually, I think Father McGinty's a little bit of a loose cannon.
Well, they're gonna want to talk to us.
Well, I'm sure they will.
I've got nothing to hide.
That must be nice.
I got a shitload to hide.
None of it involves killing Nick, though.
Well, I'm just glad you're back.
Hey Colt, what's that, a gun? Oh, shit, yeah, I took it from Billy.
I was gonna exchange it with Dad's soap dispenser, and see if Billy noticed.
- Hey.
- God - I guess you got my text.
Yeah, it's every wife's dream to look down at her phone and see, "I was cleared of murder," sent with confetti.
Did you get that gif I sent of the Kool-Aid Man breaking through the jail wall? Innocent.
Oh yeah! I feel awful.
- Stop.
- No, I I really thought that you killed Nick.
God I didn't give you the benefit of the doubt.
I didn't talk to you, I just Wow, I gave up on you.
I was gonna kill him.
Okay, not feeling as bad as I did on the drive over here.
I left here, all I could think about is Rooster dying.
Him confronting you and Peyton.
I was ready to do about anything.
I got there, I was waiting, and reached into my pocket pulled out this.
Snickers? I I stole this, it's a different story.
Started thinking about what you told me.
You're right.
I'm a dad now.
If I went through with it, I'd just end up in jail.
Never hold Peyton again.
Never hear her first words.
See her take her first steps.
Never have our first daddy and daughter spa day.
By the way, I think they changed the formula on my body scrub.
Just fucking smells like Dial now.
What? That's fucked up.
Sorry I didn't listen to what you said about going over.
I risked losing Peyton.
Losing you.
The two of you are my whole world.
The only reason why I got so angry is because I don't want Peyton to lose you, either.
Is Peyton home? [LAUGHS.]
Shut up and pour me a whiskey.
- You're bad.
- Oh shit.
Here's to me getting out of jail.
And here's to me hoping that we never have to drink to this again.
Let's just enjoy tonight.
How are you holding up? No, I'm fine.
They got proof I wasn't even there.
Just told 'em I turned around and went back to scare Nick.
They don't even know you called.
Don't worry.
Nobody knows it was you.
I got a blue light right behind me In my rear view I got a pocketful of something They could use to put me away I'm going to run like the Devil If they try and catch me The only way I'm going down Is if I'm going down in my grave
