What Happened to Us

1 Yep.
That's definitely a fracture.
What happened? I got into a fight.
Am I right? Um Hi.
The front desk has a few questions regarding your admittance form.
Oh, I'll I'll take care of it.
You guys just finish up here.
You've been ignoring my texts.
I want to talk.
Don't tell me you spent Thanksgiving alone here.
They still came? Fuck.
What'd you tell them? About why we broke up.
Oh, my God.
It's so good.
Kate, hey.
Hey, hey, hey.
How bad is it? Are we gonna lose the house? No.
No, no, no.
I'm working it out with the bank.
Hey, please.
What else have you been lying to me about? Nothing.
I promise.
Then why I didn't want to make this your problem.
But it is my problem.
I could have helped you.
I didn't want you to.
I know.
I know.
That's why I I just didn't want you to think that you couldn't depend on me.
I will make this better.
I promise.
How? Just please don't give up on me, okay? Please.
I I didn't talk to you before, but I'm talking to you now.
I'm sorry.
I've always been afraid I was gonna mess up with you.
You scare me.
But not having you in my life that's scarier.
I know that now.
I think this is just gonna be a jumping-off point for you.
I mean, we're talking international here.
I need to talk to you.
I'm actually signing with the company.
Can you believe it, Kate? My first client.
Sara's selfie with Ben got over 10,000 likes and landed Ben a Lather hand cream campaign.
Are you kidding me? I did that.
You got him an e-mail address.
I got him the job.
Sara has lots of interesting ideas for Ben.
Why do you think he got that Lather campaign? Because I see things that you can't.
Okay, there's a very simple solution here.
Kate, you and Sara will represent Ben together.
You can depend on me.
Either I represent him by myself, or I walk! He's all yours.
Seriously? Seriously.
Sometimes all you have to do is ask for what you want.
Sara I want to do a memoir, something personal, something real.
But the sequel to Skip? I don't want to do it.
You don't want to? I can't.
I tried.
But this, there's something here.
There's a book here.
I grew up with addicts for parents, and I've kept that buried my whole life.
I never thought I would want to write this book, but I want to.
I have to.
Um, Michael this breaks my heart.
This looks like an amazing book, and I think it's important to your artistic development to pursue this but this is not what we do here at Sterner.
We don't publish memoirs.
The contract was for a sequel to Skip.
I know.
No, I don't want to have to tell you this, but this is still a breach of contract.
You owe Sterner $30,000.
Kate and Michael? Yeah.
Danny's on the back patio.
Follow me, please.
Surprise! Surprise! That was great.
That was great.
Surprise, babe.
What is this? Well, we never had an engagement party.
Are you kidding? How much is this gonna cost? I just thought it would make you happy.
Five minutes.
I just need five minutes.
["I Call It Love " playing] Do woo, do woo Call it what you want But I call it love I'm here.
I call it love You can say, you can say what you want, baby But I still say it's love Hi, Kate.
I know you hate me.
I fucked up with him, which means I fucked up with you.
I am trying to fix it.
I say it's love Uh, Kate.
Danny's asking for you.
[music stops, microphone feedback] Hey.
Come here.
Kate, get on up here.
Whoo! Whoo! Whoo whoo! Well, thank you, everyone, for coming tonight, especially on such short notice.
Uh Ahem! I remember the first time I ever saw Kate, and I said to myself, "Danny, that's the woman for you right there, so go and get her.
" And I just want to say thank you.
Thank you for being my soul mate.
Thank you for being my best friend.
And I know I'm not always perfect, but thank you for giving me a chance to be better.
That's what tonight's all about.
It's about Danny and Kate.
It's about me and you, and I promise that from here on out, everything's gonna be uphill.
She's gonna be my wife! Do you want to make a toast? Yeah, here.
You say something.
Um Hi.
Um thanks for coming.
I mean, I was, I am so surprised.
Um I I I think maybe it'd be better if I just signed.
Uh, right? Okay.
Um I can't.
What the hell was that? I couldn't make up some stupid speech.
Stup So what I said in there was just a stupid speech? Did you really think that all that in there, that's gonna make things better? Yes! Yeah! What the All that in there, that, that's not real.
That's not what I want.
Well, what the hell do you want? Ah, fuck! Do you feel that? Yea That's real! I want to feel that, too.
That's what I want! Oh, I've tried Sorry the meeting didn't go well.
Fuck 'em.
Just give the advance back.
You can write something else.
What? Let me help.
Hey, like I did before.
Come on.
But I want to be with you while you figure it out.
Hey, Michael, I just want to be there for you.
Tell me how you want me to be there for you.
Need someone to love What Wait.
We're finished? We're done? Yes, okay? Yes.
Just 'cause I lied about losing my job? No, no, it's not the job.
Well, the debt? 'Cause I can fix that.
The sex? No.
Then what? You don't even know.
I been trying so fucking hard to fix everything just to make it all all right again, but it's never, ever gonna be good enough for you, is it? Like, I'm never going to be good enough for you.
I-I don't under just one little I can't fucking understand you! I don't understand why this is happening.
Because you didn't tell me.
Because that's what always happens to me.
Because I can't be with somebody who doesn't understand that that's the worst thing they could ever do.
No one's ever gonna love you the way I do not even Michael.
Michael would never lie to me.
Michael knew.
What? Why do you think I punched Jacob? Who do you think told him that I lost my job? Ohh But I've waited Yes, I've waited Sometimes I wonder Sometimes I If I never get sober, fuck it The heart wants what it wants If I never get over you, fuck it Well, I just wanna be blue sometimes I don't wanna get better I wanna burn like the Fourth of July A little bit I got to fill me up A little bit of spit in my eye I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild Ooh If there is no heaven, fuck it You can sleep with me tonight We could all just be tragic or lucky Beneath the faded stars I don't wanna get better I wanna burn like the Fourth of July A little bit I got to fill me up A little bit of spit in my eye I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild Ooh You either take your wins or bet it all again But I was never good at settling And I will break my heart just to feel it stitching up And I will leave every cage rattling 'Cause I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild I just wanna die wild
