The Summer I Turned Pretty (2022) s02e04 Episode Script

Love Game

Previously on
The Summer I Turned Pretty
I've decided to move
ahead with the sale.
Actually, we're gonna have
an open house tomorrow.
We're losing the house.
We'll figure it out together.
You wrote a beautiful book.
I think Susannah would want
you to share it with the world.
Conrad may have listened
to me at one point,
but I don't think he
cares what I think anymore.
[JEREMIAH] I'm glad I
don't have to do this alone.
Yeah, I'm glad I came, too.

Conrad, what's going on, man?
- Conrad?


Conrad, man, what's going on?
What happened?
Panic attack. I'm fine. I'll be fine.
- I'm going to go get Jere.
- No. Don't get Jere.
It's I just need a second.
Is there anything I can do?
I don't know, man. Just talk.
Okay? Just talk about anything.
Um, talk, right. Um Um
[STAMMERS] The beach.
The first time you guys
brought me here to surf,
man, I was so freaked out.
You and Jere had just
come back from some fancy
surfing camp and you knew
all these cool tricks.
I felt like such a little
kid. But you stayed and paddled
with me till we caught a wave together.
I thought you were the
coolest person in the world.
I guess you were wrong about that one.
You're still the coolest.
You have these a lot?
More since my mom died.
I'm glad you're here.
So, you want to tell me
what got you all worked up?
Or just be bros and
pretend this never happened?
- Found out I got into Stanford.
- What? Are you serious?
Yeah, man. My mom had this fantasy about
me finding myself on the West Coast.
Wait, wait, wait, Connie,
this is a good thing, man.
No, you've been dreaming
about Stanford since you
- were ten years old.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I know but things are just starting
to get better with Jere, and he's going
to Finch in the fall,
which is close to Brown,
so it just doesn't make sense
- to transfer anymore
- Hey, dude, dude, dude,
you don't have to decide
this second or anything, okay?
Just talk to Jere.
He doesn't even know I applied, man.
Please don't tell him.
I mean, Stanford's not even an Ivy.
So fuck 'em, right?
Let's go.

- Mom?
- Yeah? Hi.
- Oh.
- Oh. Damn. [LAUGHS]
[SKYE] I know we're not in California,
- but save a little water.
- Thank you, honey.
Oh. Hey, Belly.
Hey. Sorry. I just, um,
smelled muffins.
- You want one?
- Yeah, sure.
Uh, those are for the open house.
Mmm, did somebody get muff
- muffins? Hi.
- Hey, Jeremiah.
- Conrad.
- [CONRAD] Skye.
You didn't tell me she was here, too.
It's "they." Not "she."
God, I guess it's been like
a decade since I saw you guys.
Um, how are you doing since your mom?
- It's been rough.
- Rougher now
that our aunt's stealing our house.
I'm not stealing anything, Conrad.
Like it or not, I get
to choose what happens
to this house and I choose
to put it on the market.
You boys should get on the road.
Beat the traffic back to Boston.
There's no chance. We're
staying for the open house.
Uh, no, no, no. I can't
have a bunch of teenagers
chasing everybody
away. Call your father,
because this isn't
an Aunt Julia problem.
Except it is.
Because you are the problem.
I don't have time for this.
Conrad, she's still your family.
Then why is she doing this to us?
- This is hard for her, too.
- [CONRAD] Really?
Seems like she's doing this
all pretty fucking easily.
He's grown into quite the asshole.
You have no idea.
This is your room, I take it?
- Not for long, apparently.
It used to be mine, actually.
It was different back then.
More rustic.
But this is nice.
It's, um, warm. Your mother's touch.
Keep the house in the
family and it's yours.
How generous of you.
I know my mom's gone,
but here she's not.
She picked out everything in this house.
She planted every flower in the garden.
This was her favorite
place in the world.
I understand that your family
has wonderful memories here,
and you will always have them.
Memories are like that.
It is not the same, and you know that.
This house is on the other side
of the country from where I live.
It'd cost tens of thousands of dollars
to maintain a year.
Money that I don't have.
What-what was that?
Sounded like an Aunt
Julia problem to me.
How many people are in this house?
Yeah, I remembered to
lock the door last night.
I'm not a child.
What are you wearing right now?
Okay, I forgot mine. Okay?
And these are the only
ones left in the drawer.
And they're fucking comfortable. Okay?
Why are you whispering right now?
- 'Cause Laurel.
- Is that Taylor?
[STEVEN] Uh, yes,
it is Taylor. Belly must
have brought her over
for a change of scenery. I mean,
between you and me, she
doesn't look too good.
You know? I mean, I don't
even think she's showered
since the breakup.
[LAUREL] Okay, well,
keep an eye on everything
and don't let the girls
- eat snacks in my bed.
- Yeah.
Yeah, okay. A-And remember,
you're going to kill it.
You're my favorite author.
Brandon Sanderson is
your favorite author.
And he's here, by the way.
Can you please get a
signed copy of his new book?
Love you. Thank you. Bye!
You're a terrible liar.
And I never smell bad.
[TAYLOR] Ooh, give me some.
Bigger than that.
So, why are you hiding up here?
Are you avoiding that aunt or Conrad?
Taylor, I'm just eating breakfast.
Maybe a little bit of both?
I honestly have no idea.
I know that you came here
with the best intentions,
but this is, like, their family drama.
I just don't want you to
get sucked back into it.
I'm not going to get
sucked back into it.
But I know that if the open
house happens today and someone
makes Aunt Julia an
offer, then it's game over.
- Well, I know, but
- And I just, I don't understand
why she's in such a rush to sell.
I don't know, Belly. I mean,
I'm sure that she has her reasons.
Let's go do some drills
down by the beach.
Volleyball camp starts
in like five days.
I haven't touched a
volleyball in months.
I can forget about
getting my captaincy back.
I'll be lucky if I even make the team.
Look, did blowing it at regionals
crush your confidence? Clearly.
Are you Coach's favorite
player right now? Hell no.
Have you gotten incredibly
rusty in the offseason?
Like, without a doubt.
Am I helping by acknowledging
your worst fears?
Probably not.
Okay, look, all I'm trying to say
is that the past doesn't
determine your fate.
It's-it's the choices
that you make today.
Trust me, I know things.
Um, are there more of these downstairs?
[LAUGHS] It was hard enough
for me to get this one.
Hi. Can I help you?
Sandy Denati. I'm looking for Julia.
Right. Yes, uh, for the open house.
You know, Julia actually
decided to cancel.
Yeah, it's last-minute,
but, um, she's having
some second thoughts.
Sorry, who are you?
She's my girlfriend, and
she's, um, and she's right.
The house is not for sale.
Conrad Fisher, right?
It's nice to see you. I
am sorry about your mom.
Well, clearly not
sorry enough to pass up
the opportunity to sell her house.
I'm just doing my job.
Well, consider this
an unexpected day off.
[JULIA] Ignore them. Ignore them.
There will be an open house today.
But there does seem to be a minor
problem with the AC. It died.
That is not a minor problem, Julia.
It is supposed to hit 95 today.
Yeah. Okay, um, let's
chat outside for a minute.
I'm sorry. I didn't mean
to call you my girlfriend.
Don't worry about it. It's cool.
Hey, is everything okay?
- No, the realtor just got here.
- Shit.
- What are we going to do?
- I don't know what else we can do.
Well, maybe Skye has some
information that could help us.
I don't know. If only we could
get a moment alone with her.
- Them.
- Right. Thanks.
Well, good luck because
those two are inseparable.
I don't fucking know.
It's so hot. It's like
2,000 degrees in here.
Aunt Julia said the AC is broken.
Oh, what? No way.
Today's open house has been canceled.
So I need you all out of the house while
I get the AC guy here to do some work.
Also, uh, who is the AC guy?
[SKYE] Uh, do you want
me to look one up for you?
Uh, no, no, that's okay.
I'm certain Susannah has
her preferred technician
and four approved backups right here.
Great. Now we don't have
to lie about the black mold
to the buyers. Let's go to the beach.
- I'm not leaving.
- [JEREMIAH] Come on, Conrad.
We've won this round.
Let's just get out of here.
- The mall has good AC.
- [CONRAD] Cool. Have fun.
I didn't ditch finals
just to leave this house
for the taking by
Conrad, I'm trying straining
to keep my shit together.
You've already ruined my day.
The least you could do is get
out of my hair for a few hours.
- You think you're the only one
- What about the boardwalk?
Yeah, the boardwalk.
That's a great idea.
- [STEVEN] Yeah, I'm down.
- [TAYLOR] Yeah, me too.
[CONRAD] Yeah, fine. Yeah.
Hey, you should come with us, Skye.
Oh, um, sounds very state fair.
I think I should just
stay with you, right?
No. Wasn't my favorite,
but you might like it.
I shouldn't just stay with you?
No, I'll be fine.
After this, I'm going to
go back to the hotel
for a nap and a NAN fan.
Guess I'm coming with you guys.
- [BELLY] Okay.
- [TAYLOR] Great!
- Let's go.
- [SKYE] Whoo!
- Cousins to Cousins.
- [TAYLOR] Let's go.
- [STEVEN] Yeah.
- [JEREMIAH] Let's roll.
Hey, Jere, can you just hold on a sec?
I want to talk to you about something.
Yeah, sure, sure. What?
I hope you're not mad
that I invited Skye.
I know things are weird with their mom.
Oh, no, it was nice of you.
Yeah, I just, I think that,
you know, once they get
to see more of Cousins
and hang out with you guys,
then they'll see why we
love this place so much.
And, I mean, I just know
they'll be on our side.
Like it. I'll follow your lead.
Okay. Thanks. Yeah.
It's actually kind of
nice to hang out with Skye.
You know, it's just me,
my dad and Conrad now,
so it's nice to feel like our family
is a little bit bigger than that.
Well, we're your family, too.
Hey, thanks for everything
that you're doing.
It means a lot.
I'm in love and
you've got me, runaway ♪
You steal the air out of my lungs ♪
You make me feel it ♪
I pray for everything we
lost, buy back the secrets ♪
Your hand forever's all I want ♪
Don't take the money ♪
Don't take the money ♪
See, aren't you glad we came?
How is this any less hot
than it would be inside?
Because you have the magical
sea breeze to cool you down.
Cool breeze, my ass.
I want some ice cream.
Nature's air conditioning.
You know, I'm kind of
a natural introvert,
so I can't tell if
this place is horrifying
or if it's just, like,
my lizard brain in action.
- It's fun, I promise.
- Fun?
Because I seem to remember the last time
we were here, you were crying.
Belly was 12. And Conrad
beat her at Shoot Your Shot.
And her penalty was to
ride the Tower of Terror.
- Yep.
- Belly, you were so scared, you threw up.
- I was sick.
- Sick with fear.
My mom had to throw out your clothes
and carry you home in a caftan.
- I know.
Susannah used to force my mom
to come here when they were kids.
My mom always hated it, but
Susannah loved it so much, so
You know what else my mom loved?
The beach house.
My mom's not evil, Conrad.
And your mom wasn't a saint.
Skye, have you ever
played Shoot Your Shot?
No, and I'm-I'm fine
keeping it that way.
Well, do you want to
watch me beat Conrad's ass?
- You could not do that.
I wouldn't hate watching that.
[BELLY] You think you
still got it, Conrad?
Okay, no, please, not another
Great Boardwalk Showdown.
- Why not? Why not?
- No. What are you doing?
So, they used to do this big tournament
on the boardwalk every
year when they were kids.
I would get a, um, a
riveting play-by-play
as soon as Belly got home.
Well, yeah, every year until Belly
and Conrad got too competitive.
And then my mom banned us
from ever playing again.
Are you down, Jere?
- Hell yeah. Let's do it.
- [STEVEN] Whoa, yes. Yes.
I should actually, um, head out.
No, you should stay. [CLEARS THROAT]
It's fun.
It's too late. You're
already on my team.
Fine. You win. But I
don't do high fives.
I'm not going to,
like, whoop in the air.
I don't trash talk.
The corners of my mouth might turn up
just a little bit, but
I'm not gonna smile.
- Deal.
- Deal.
So then what's the prize?
Losers have to buy the winners
the biggest bag of
candy of their choosing.
Really? Candy?
No, I mean, can't we think
of something, like, sexier?
[JEREMIAH] Candy's
always been the prize.
I mean, it was Belly's
choice, obviously.
Well, fine. Fine. We can play the games.
But we start at the arcade
because it is hot as balls out here.
- Okay?
- True that.
[BELLY] I thought we'd lost
this part of our lives forever,
but maybe, just for
today, we can have it back.
[STEVEN] Oh, my God!
Hey, little mama,
yeah, you heard about me ♪
I'm-a pop you like

The games are best of five rounds.
The first and last
rounds, everyone plays.
The middle rounds, it's

so choose your best fighter.
Probably not gonna be me.
Hey, don't sell yourself

- Get her, get her, get her!
- Yeah!
- We won! Yes!
- Yeah!
- Good game!
In your face!
- Game won!
- Are you kidding me?!
Hey, you know what? Don't
worry. We'll get them next time.
- "Get them next time"?
- Oh.
I think we're playing
Capture the Flag next.
- And if I remember correctly
- Oh, yes. I got this, bro.
- All right. I need a pee break.
- What?
- What? You want to play?
- You're ridiculous.
No. No.
A little brother versus
sister challenge, huh?
No, no, no, this is all Taylor.
She's a little spider monkey.
Doesn't matter. She's still
gonna get her butt whupped.
Oh, please! Your weak arms.
- My weak arms?
- Yeah.
Okay, okay.
And we did this? It was so long ago.
- [SKYE] Hey, guys.
- Hey.
- Um
can I ask you two a question?
- Sure.
- Yeah.
Do you remember the last
time we saw each other?
I remember you were a lot smaller.
Ah, yes. Thank you, puberty.
Um, yeah, it was, uh
it was the Christmas
just after Grandpa died.
I remember you and your mom
bailed Christmas morning.
My mom had cooked a huge breakfast.
- She was heartbroken.
- Yeah.
My mom was hoping it
would be a chance to
clear the air about all
the shit from the past.
Your mom wanted it to be
picture-perfect Christmas.
You know, "nothing ever happened."
So, um, they fought and we left.
My mom cried the whole plane ride home.
I mean, we had pizza
for Christmas dinner.
It became kind of a
tradition. Call it "Shitmas."
I don't think Mom was
trying to shut your mom down.
I think she just wanted a fresh start.
Sucks our moms never got
to work their shit out.
I mean, the beach house is pretty cool.
Would have been nice
to spend some time there
with you guys.
Scared? What are you pushing me for?
[LAUGHS] Wait, wait, wait,
wait. Look. Check it out.
[BELLY] Wow.
I've never actually seen anyone reading
- one of Mom's books before.
- [STEVEN] I know.
Me either.
Oh, should we send her a picture?
What? Dude, no, no.
If you take a picture
and send it to her,
she'll find out where we
are and come and bust us.
- Mm.
- Hey, did I
did I even tell you that
she went to New York?
I mean, you know, for,
like, the book thing?
She actually seemed kind of nervous.
Come on, Laurel doesn't get nervous.
You're wrong about Mom.
- What, Taylor?
- What do you mean?
- Why are you being mean?
- Being mean?
What are you talking
about? All right, all right.
Fine, fine, fine, fine. Next
challenge, me versus you.
You ready to have your ass kicked?
Let's get this going.
Oh, my God.
You think I can do it right now?
- Here he goes. Go for it, dude.
No, no, no, you actually can't
do that without a harness.
- Cam?
- [JEREMIAH] Cam Cameron?
- No way!
- Yeah.
- Wait, are we in trouble?
- [CAM] Oh.
I mean, officially, there's no horseplay
on or around the rock
wall, but unofficially,
it's the most exciting
thing to happen all day.
What are you doing here?
I thought Nicole said that
you were doing some internship
on a fancy whaling boat.
- That fell through.
- I'm sorry to hear that.
This uniform, though?
Super cool. Very official.
Thanks, Belly.
Skye! I forgot you haven't met Cam yet.
Um, Skye, this is Cam Cameron.
- Hi.
- Cam Cameron,
this is Skye, Conrad
and Jeremiah's cousin.
Okay, well, great catching
up with you, seeing you again.
- Yeah, you too.
- Yeah, but we have some unfinished business.
- Let's go! Yup.
- It's you and me now, Tay-Tay.
I always knew we'd end up here.
[LAUGHS] What? Where?
Me beating your ass into the ground.
- Oh, please.
- Oh, come on, Taylor.
- You got this in the bag.
- Bring it home, Steve-O.
- Take it home.
[CAM] First one to the flag wins.
And go!
- [CONRAD] Come on, Steven!
- [JEREMIAH] You got it, Steven!
[BELLY] Come on, Taylor,
you got it. It's easy.
Let's go, Steve-O!
- [JEREMIAH] Steven!
- Come on, Steve-O! -
[BELLY] Come on!
- [JEREMIAH] Get there!
- [BELLY] You got it.
- Oh!
Steven got it!
- Steven wins! - Whoo!
- Thank God.
It's too easy. That's too easy!
[TAYLOR] Shut up!
- Coming down, boys. Whoo!
- Yes, sir.
- Bring it home. Bring it home.
- Attaboy, Steve-O.
- [GROANS] I was so close, babe.
It's okay. Hey, don't worry about it.
I love being the underdog. It fuels me.
- So where to next?
- It's their call.
Well, I don't know about you,
Belly, but I think it might be
- time to shoot your shot.
- Oh, you're on.
'Cause girls is players, too ♪
'Cause girls is players, too ♪
Too bad for you,
basketball is about angles.
Mm. Too bad for you,
I had such a great trigonometry tutor.
Thank you.
Okay, five balls each. Most baskets win.
On your marks, get set
[JEREMIAH] Come on, Connie!
[TAYLOR] Come on, Belly! You got this!

- In your face!
- All right.
Okay, I let you have that one,
so you don't weep when I win.
- Okay, sure, you did. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Yeah.
[TAYLOR] Whoa, nice!
- [JEREMIAH] Oh, he's on fire!
- I mean
My heart still takes me back ♪
- Nice.
- Wow, wow, wow.
- We got a game!
- [CAM] It's tied.
- Tied! Three to three.
Nice shot, Belly.
- Wrong team, bro.
- What?
Let's go, baby!
- [JEREMIAH] Good job, Belly.
- [TAYLOR] All net, Belly.
- [SKYE] Go, Belly.
- [TAYLOR] All net.
Come on, Connie, come on, baby!
- [CAM] All right!
- [STEVEN] That was close.
That is four for Conrad.
This is the last shot.
Will Belly take the
five-fecta and snatch the win?
You got it, Belly.
You got nothing. You got nothing.
Let's go, Belly. You got this.
Thought it was dumb but it ♪
Belly Conklin is the winner!
- Yes!
- Boom!
Guess you can't cosign her angles.
[TAYLOR] Whoa, wait.
- Yeah!
- [TAYLOR] Wait, Skye.
- Did you just math-taunt him?
- I did.
And it-it was kind of fun.
It was so good. It was so good.
Belly, you know what? Heads up.
Perfect spike. That's my Killa B.
- I knew you could do it.
You just had to stop
overthinking and let instinct
kick in. You know what I mean?
As much as it pains me to
say it, it was a good win.
Yeah, well, I told you
I'd kick your ass, so
I think you get to pick a prize.

[BELLY] The first time I
ever had my heart broken
was at this boardwalk.
I was 13.
Conrad asked me to go.
Just us.
It was everything I'd been
waiting for, the moment.
Uh, it's kind of crowded.
Do you want to go sit
on the pier instead?
I was thinking we could
play some ring toss.
[BELLY] I thought he'd
asked because he wanted
to hang out with me, but he'd
come to the boardwalk to see her.
They said the end is coming ♪
Everyone's up to something ♪
I find myself running
home to your sweet nothings ♪
Okay, come with me.
You're in the kitchen humming,
all that you ever wanted ♪
From me was sweet nothing ♪
- How many rings?
- We'll take three.
- I like your shorts.
- Thanks.
Yeah, they're really nice.
I thought you said they were too short
when I wore the exact
same ones two days ago.
Do you think they're too short?
All right, Con, I'm
gonna go get a lemonade.
So, win me a prize, okay?
Everyone's up to something ♪
I find myself running
home to your sweet nothings ♪
Outside, they're push and shoving ♪
You're in the kitchen humming ♪
All that you ever wanted
from me was sweet nothing ♪
They said the end is coming ♪
Everyone's up to something ♪
All that you ever wanted
from me was sweet nothing ♪
How come you never came back?
The line for the
the Ferris wheel was really long.
On the way home ♪
Angie said this is the
best prize they have.
I thought you might like it.
This happens all the time ♪
I'd rather have had
the giraffe, but thanks.
The worst part is, he
was trying to be nice.
He didn't know my heart was breaking.
[CONRAD] Oh, wow.
They haven't changed
these prizes in years.
You can get Junior Mint a friend.
[BELLY] Yeah.
You know what? I'll take the giraffe.
Thank you. [CHUCKLES]
All right!
So we finally get to pick,
and I choose dancing.
- Okay!
I'm just I'm just gonna say
it was supremely satisfying
watching you wipe the floor with Conrad
after everything he put you through.
- It was like
- Taylor, come on.
I mean, he and I are fine.
It was fun, even.
Really? You guys can just, like,
have fun together casually now?
- Yeah, I guess.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- That's
kind of major.
Hey, uh, Steven.
Isn't it, um, just such a coincidence
that, uh, the AC broke
during a heat wave
right after the future
engineering student arrived?
[CHUCKLES] I have no idea
what you're talking about.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
I love a happy accident.
Hey, Belly. Belly.
- Are you gonna keep just, like
Are you gonna be doing that all day?
Is that gonna be,
like, your thing today?
Eh. [CHUCKLES] Uh, maybe. I don't know.
- Okay.
- [SNIFFS] Oh, wait.
Do you smell that?
- What?
- I think I smell, uh
a comeback.
- Oh, do you? Okay, yeah.
- [LAUGHS] Oh, yeah. I do.
- You sure about that?
'Cause if you're sure, I mean,
I'd be willing to
make a little side bet.
All right. Keep talking.
I was just thinking,
if you wanted, um
maybe whichever one of us loses
has to ride the Tower of Terror.
You used to cry every time you
looked at the Tower of Terror.
- I I
- Yeah. [STAMMERS]
I'm very excited to see it happen again.
- Okay.
- Mm-hmm.
- You're on then.
- Mm-hmm.
He made it so hard not to love him.
When he was sweet like
this, I remembered why I did.
Used to love him, I mean.

Did I hear you talking
about the Tower of Terror?
Because I'm pretty sure
that's only gonna end
with one of you in tears.
- Yeah, well, better him than me, right? [CHUCKLES]
- Agreed.
And, I mean, at least
he'll be in a good mood,
uh, right up until he
sheds his first tear.
You know, competition is the
key to making Conrad happy.
I mean, I know you both very well.
Oh, yeah?
Well, what's the key to
making me happy, Belly?
Ariana Grande.
And correcting people
who say "bru-shetta."
- 'Cause it's "bru-sketta."
- Yeah.
- Damn, you're good, Belly.
What can I say?
- Good luck.
- Jere.
- Ready? Yeah?
- My moves
- are legendary.
- Yeah.
- Oh, I know.
- I got this.
Skye's up.
- Oh.
- Really not a great idea
- if we want to win.
- You'll be great at it.
It's basically just math with your feet.
They'll never see you
coming. This is how we win.
All right?
- You got it.
- Bring it on, cuz.
You know, Skye, I feel like
we've gotten closer today.
It would be a shame if my dance moves
were to affect our relationship.
We'll see.
- All right.
- Let's go, Skye.
- [CONRAD] Come on, Jere.
- All right.
- Game on.
- Come on, Skye!
- All right. Whoo! You got it!
- [CONRAD/CAM] Come on, Jere.
- Come on.
- I got this.
- Keep it up, keep it up.
- [JEREMIAH] I got it.
- Say I should give you up ♪
- That's all you got, Jere? Come on.
- Oh, yeah?
- 'Cause I ♪
- What?
I've been here all night ♪
[LAUGHS] I think Skye might
actually be good at this.
[BELLY] I mean, I was just
making the math thing up,
but I think you're right. [LAUGHS]
Fuck me. You're incredible.
Go, Skye!
- Jeremiah, come on!
- I'm trying!

Perfect! Fantastic!
- I'm tired!

Get her!
- Just step it up!
- Go, Skye!
- [STEVEN] Get her, dude.

- Oh, my God!
- Yeah!
- Ooh! I don't do hugs.
- I don't do hugs.
- What?
- Really?
- Okay. Like, all right.
Where next?
Follow me.
- Let's go.
- I'm baffled right now.
Really? Those are those
are your legendary moves?
Oh, okay. Like you could do better?
- That's his life story!
[JEREMIAH] Watch it.
[SUSANNAH] Guys, let's take a picture.
- [LAUREL] Okay.
I'm doing it.
[WOMAN] One, two, three. Say cheese.
[ALL] Cheese!

- [LAUREL] You see,
it's not really a book
about grief at all.
It's a book about friendship.
Well, this is all very impressive.
You look like you're having fun.
I really hope there's
wine in those coffee cups.
I mean, there can be.
So, uh
how's the life of a
saleswoman treating you?
Oh, you know, it's soul-destroying,
deeply traumatic, making
me question every decision
in my life I've made up to this point.
Sounds great, you know?
Nonstop bliss.
- So you're totally fine.
I, um
reached out to Conrad
before the funeral,
but that boy isn't always
easy to get ahold of.
It's hard for him.
For all of them.
It's okay for it to
be hard for you, too.
It's been hard.
Well, you look great.
[CHUCKLES] Well, looks can be deceiving.
Look, things may have
fizzled between us, but
you can always talk to me.
We had so long to prepare for this,
and I still have no fucking
idea how to process it,
let alone talk about it.
Belly isn't handling it well.
I don't know how to help her.
Well, maybe you don't need to help her.
- You're clearly not a parent.
Look, something really shitty happened,
and you can't fix it. But
you can let her know that
you're feeling it, too.
She may just need to know that
she's not alone in her feelings.
I hear you, but
I can't.
I'm her mom.
If she sees how big my grief really is,
it'll just scare her.

I had a really bad episode
of depression a few years ago.
And I felt like I was just
sitting at the bottom of a deep hole,
looking up at the
world going on above me.
The friends that helped me
the most were not the ones
who tried to get me out of the hole.
It was the friends who
climbed down into the hole,
sat with me for a bit that
really made things better.
I mean, there isn't a
right way to do this, Laurel.
I should get back.
I didn't see your name
on the author list.
Are you here for your new book?
Would it scare you off if I
told you I was here for you?
Depends on where you take me for dinner.
I'll meet you back here at 7:00?

Okay, when I woke up this morning,
I did not expect to be
here doing this again.
I used to love the
Great Boardwalk Showdown.
Maybe I loved it a little too much.
All I cared about was if I won.
But today is about us.
Taylor, you've shown up for me
over and over again this year,
and now I'm showing up for you.
And, Skye, I know we just met
and you probably think we're
all way too competitive,
but our-our team wouldn't
be where we are without you.
When Conrad chose this team, he thought
they had it in the bag. But
we have proven them wrong.
And whether we win or lose, we
are worthy of that giant bag
Oh, you can be as inspirational
as you want, Belly.
We're still going to kick your asses.
- Shut up, Steven.
All right.
- I don't know about you guys
- Ooh, I want this one.
but I feel the need
[ALL] The need for speed!
Let's go!
Drivers, start your engines!
First team with all their
cars past the finish line wins.
On your mark. Get set.
- Go, go, go!
Floor it!
You're going down!
Reckless and wild, they
pour through the turns ♪
Their prowess is potent
and secretly stern ♪
As they speed through the finish ♪
The flags go down,
the fans get up ♪
I'm coming for you, Belly!
The arena is empty
except for one man ♪
You're going down, Taylor!
And striving as fast as they can ♪
- Oh, I'm catching up.
- Oh! We're last!
Catching up. I'm catching up.
We got this in the bag.
And hugging the turns ♪
And thinking of someone
for whom he still burns ♪
Come on. Where is he?
- He's going the distance ♪
- Oh, yeah!
- He's going for speed ♪
- She's all alone ♪
- All alone! ♪
All alone in her time of need ♪
[CONRAD] Oh, you're going down!
Watch your back!
Eat my fucking dust, bro!
- I'm trying!
- Technically, you can merge into the carpool lane.
- The inside turn, right here!
- I got it, inside!
Inside turn! Go, go, go, go!
No, no. No, no, no, no!

- Suck it!
- Fuck. Oh, no!
- Yeah! ♪
- No!
In your face! In your
No! Oh, my God!
- Oh, my God.
- Oh! Oh!
- That's my boy!
That's my boy!

Get ready to pay up, Belly.
You know, I think that's why
our mom banned us from playing.
I could pay. I mean,
I made a ton of money
shorting bitcoin, so
You are one of the
most interesting people
I've ever met.
- How you doing, Cinder-Belly?
- I mean, is it weird for me
to be having an existential
crisis about this?
Am I good enough for our volleyball team
if I can't even win boardwalk games?
No, we need you on the team because
you lost the boardwalk games.
I mean, we have a great team,
but that doesn't mean that
we're going to win every game.
We need somebody that's
going to, like, lead us,
- win or lose.
- Or tie.
Well, we don't tie.
Yeah, fuck ties.
[LAUGHS] No, but
seriously, you made us both
the best versions of ourselves.
That's what a leader
does. Coach would be insane
not to give you your
captaincy back this year.
[SKYE] She's right, you know.
I mean, like, a couple hours ago,
the idea of participating,
let alone competing,
in games was quite literally hell.
Against all odds, I've
kind of had a great day
getting to know my cousins,
so you're good at this.
You're a natural boss.
[CLEARS THROAT] Sorry to interrupt.
- Is it time?
- [CONRAD] It is time.
The Tower of Terror awaits.
I'm gonna go get you a barf bag.
Yeah, come on.
[SKYE] Let's go.
Hey, no one said you
had to do this alone.
I can keep you company
if you want me to.
The key is just to not think about it.
Okay. Let's go.
Come on. You got this.
You've done it before.
[BELLY] I know.

All right.
- It's now or never, I guess.
- Butterflies.
- I guess so.
- Come on!
- Come on!
- Go, boss!
- Yes!
- You got this!
- Come on, Jere.
- [TAYLOR] Let's go!
- After you.
- [CONRAD] Come on, Jere!
- [TAYLOR] You got this!
- [CONRAD] You got this!
Make sure you're really buckled in, man.
It's okay to be scared.
ESP tell you that?
No, your face did.
Hey, don't worry. I'm
right here with you, okay?
[BELLY] Jeremiah is always
there when I need him.
That it seems to me ♪
When I was 13,
right before the Fourth of July,
I caught a horrible summer cold.
I hated being sick, but the worst part
about it was feeling so left out.
[SUSANNAH] Ooh, what
are you up to, Jere-Bear?
[JEREMIAH] I was just going to
go to the boardwalk with Clay.
[SUSANNAH] Oh, yeah.
It's such a nice day.
- [JEREMIAH] Yeah.
- [SUSANNAH] Poor Belly is stuck inside with a cold.
It'd be sweet of you
to keep her company.
- Mom
- Jere, please?
[JEREMIAH] I can go to
the boardwalk tomorrow.
[SUSANNAH] That's my sunshine boy.
[BELLY] He stayed home with
me for the rest of the week.
And then when he got
sick two days later,
I stayed home with him.

- Interesting.
- What?
- Nothing.
It's just interesting.
Thanks for looking out for us today.
Yeah, no, that was the least I could do.
You guys, um, you guys
had a pretty tough year.
Yeah. I don't know.
It feels, like, weird having some fun.
Like, part of me feels guilty.
I don't know if that makes sense.
Yeah, I know, I know
exactly what you mean.
Yeah, I know you know.
Today was really important for you guys.
Fun is important. Very important.
You want to come back
to the house with us?

Yeah, stop picturing me in the shower.

- Do you have a name yet?
