It's not me.
That is not enough.

You've known Buck forever, the stuff that he No, it's you! You were better.
You fucking told me you were better for months! You said you weren't transitioning.
- I didn't know! - You fucking knew! I guess I guess a part of me That's why I'm mad.

No.
Wait, wait.
Not in here.
Not in this house.
No more "mom"? Now I'm just "Tara"? I don't know why you'd be upset, Tara.
I've called you many names over our time together.
- Stupid ant! - I'm sure what happened last night - was confusing - Not to me.
I'm used to it.
Is there a name you'd rather be called, Tara, than "Tara"? That's fun, Kate.
Good stuff.
Morning.
I'm off to work.
Someone around here needs to be a responsible adult.
Also, you have grass all over your back.
So, I found this killer wedding dress by Badgley Mischka, but it's really expensive.
But it's awesome! But I need my chocolate fountain.
I'm not getting married without my chocolate fountain.
I don't care what Nick's family says, we are dancing down the aisle, and we are all wearing sunglasses.
That sounds like every little girl's dream.
Last night? You and Max work it out? Charmy, I really don't want to talk about it.
You know what I realized this morning? My bedroom window overlooks the Hubbards' backyard.
That's quite a view.
A good therapist in Overland Park? Please, I can't even find a good latte.
That one place That café attached to the Christmas store? With that little queen behind the counter? Spiritual pride in a barista? I won't brook it! I won't! He won't brook it.
So, what's the problem? Let's just say, I've been seriously without help for a while, and I've I've been okay, but I think I actually need help again.
Just got some stuff going on with me.
Or Max.
With me and Max.
You're not gonna find anybody around here.
Hany and I went through a rocky period a few years back Erectile dysfunction.
Let's just say it It was me.
It was him.
We went to quack after quack after quack.
It was a duck pond.
So shrinkwise, I'm fucked? You may be.
But in the meantime, take this for a spin.
Written by my old therapist.
The much-lauded Shoshana Schoenbaum? It's simple stuff, but she's very down-to-earth.
- Till you find the right doctor.
- Yeah, I'll give it a look.
- Just don't crack the spine.
- He hates that.
I hate that.
Hey, buddy.
Just in time for a little "Billy Jack" action.
"When I see this child "who is so special to us" I kind of have to get to school.
" we call him God's little ray of sunshine, "so demeaned by this idiotic moment of yours "I just go berserk!" I fucked my back.
I thought "Billy Jack" was about nonviolence.
I don't know.
I guess Buck's out.
Yeah, Buck's out.
You and mom okay? We're dealing with it.
I thought you were working with that guy.
Sully? No, not anymore.
Motherfucker tried to rip me off.
So You just let the guy take our money? No, I took care of it.
How? I kind of kicked the shit out of him.
Does Does mom know? Let's keep it that way, okay, bro? I was just out of art school, realized that the crap I was making wasn't selling.
Little less talking, little more painting.
So I started making princess paintings.
- My arm's fucking killing me! - Quit complaining.
At first, I hated myself.
Starting to hate you! But then I realized, you know, at least my paintings were selling.
Every now and then, I could afford a whopper with cheese.
Sword! So, what are her superpowers? Does she burn things with her eyes? Does she hear good? Does she fly? Yeah.
She flies.
What about sex? Do I use my body like a weapon, like Poison Ivy on Batman? I'm pretty fuckable.
The princess don't fuck.
Because she won't? Because she can't.
Got it.
Like Barbie no holes.
Hey, Max, I was just I figure we could do it there.
Sure.
Yeah.
Makes sense.
I mean, we could This seems right.
Classic.
Yeah, it's It's what you'd expect? A bed.
What'd you tell Ms.
Watkins to get out of school? I told her I had an ortho.
You? I went with explosive diarrhea.
That's a lot of condoms.
Where did you get all that? Planned parenthood.
My mom's nightstand.
My cousin Graham.
So, any of these calling your name? That one.
Yeah, sure.
That that's fine.
The other way.
I think it's supposed to be hard.
I bet if you wanted to, you could make some pretty good coin off this thing and pay off your debt.
You know Mugs and t-shirts and key chains.
- Sure.
- And hats and stickers.
And you could put out a magazine with pictures and a centerfold.
Not a centerfold.
She's a subject, not an object.
But you know what? You're right.
I mean, who the fuck is gonna see the painting? Let's make a movie.
"From birth, each of us sets out to discover who we really are.
" "But when trauma occurs, we create ways to survive.
" "Often, we split into pieces" "and abandon the most vulnerable parts of ourselves," "boxing them up in tidy packages and tossing them away.
" "Later, we spend our lives looking for these parcels," "hoping to meet someone who can help us find" "these lost splintered pieces of ourself.
" Charmaine, dear, shut that door this instant! All that rain will buckle the hardwood! Tara! What in the name of all that is Holy have you done with your poncho? I don't know, Mimi.
Don't play games with me.
That thing you did That was you coming, right? Big-time.
Did you? Totally.
A lot.
So many times.
So I don't know if you're, like, all worn out But I could go again.
If you want to.
You're not in any pain or anything, are you? I don't think so.
- We could go back to school.
- I do have a chemistry test.
What? I got help.
I found somebody.
Remember that woman that Ted was talking about, his therapist in New York? When I was there this morning, he gave me one of her books.
I've been reading it all day.
It's so good.
And it says that people, all people, have ways of being not integrated, and that we jettison parts of ourselves into these parcels.
Come on, speak English.
It's a book.
A book is not help.
We need a new doctor.
I got in touch with her.
Did you call her? Yeah, I called her.
She's Ted's old therapist.
Max, she's fucking brilliant.
She has a mind like She loves my story.
She's in New York.
Well, she's happy to start with phone therapy.
We might skype.
Skype? And she can travel.
She's, like, this famous author.
I don't trust these - small-town locals.
I'm too - What? What are you? It's Kate.
You got to be kidding me.
What's wrong with the car? Don't start it again.
You flooded it.
Where are you? We'll come get you.
Where? This is colorful.
Smells like pee.
We're here! Let's go! - Bye! - Bye-bye, Kate.
Goodbye, goodbye! - What are you wearing? - It's my Princess Valhalla costume.
You're not walking around like that.
Come here.
That fucking car.
Stupid piece of American shit.
Yeah, that's who's at fault here Detroit.
That sign was the only thing left when I found this place.
They made copper plating, doorknobs, drawer pulls.
- How long have you lived here? - About a year.
But you don't want to know that.
I don't? I've noticed that when people walk into a new place, they get nervous, so they start asking questions about numbers.
What do you really want to know? You You ready to go? I'm gonna give this to you.
It's Kate's.
We're not talking about it anymore.
End of discussion.
You can't ground me.
I was there for my job.
I've had it up to here with you guys.
- Who's the parent around here, anyway? - No one.
Jesus God, girl.
Could you cut me some fucking slack for once? Maybe I'll move out.
Maybe I'll move in with Lynda.
How come you never told us she was black? What does that have to do with anything? Wake up, Fox News.
There's a new sheriff in town.
His name is Barack Obama.
I think it's a cool thing.
Great.
Now it's cool that she's black.
That's even worse.
Okay, here's the deal.
You're done with the car, and with going downtown, and with that woman, having nothing to do with her being black.
What do you guys even do together? Bottom line You're grounded until we say otherwise.
You know, if you are desperate to ground somebody, you should be grounding mom! She's the one that has been pretending to be somebody else with the lady from the ice-skating rink, doing God knows what! Coming from the girl in the winged hat and the princess costume.
Stop! Okay? Look, Kate, your mom's getting help.
We found an expert in New York who's gonna help her.
New York? Yeah.
They don't know what they're doing around here.
Come on.
Let's just give the new doc a chance, all right? Hey, kids! So - We've got some big news.
- We're pregnant! What the fuck, Nick? - I'm sorry.
- You fucking ruined it! Okay.
You go.
No.
What am I supposed to say now? It's gone.
The moment's gone.
- Hey, guys - Congratulations, Charmaine.
- Thank you.
- If that baby knows what's good for it, it'll tie the umbilical cord around its neck and take a leap.
What the hell, Kate? Anyway Max, I want to talk to you sometime maybe about maybe buying this place.
For me and Charmaine and our baby.
We're so excited to have our own family, but she said she can't imagine doing it anywhere but here, right next door to you guys.
All right.
Great, great.
Good.
Goddamn.
I guess I'm a little confused about why you're living with us.
I mean, aren't you supposed to be "re-virginating"? Well, it must have happened before I moved out of Nick's.
I love the light in here! This is gonna be the baby's room.
Okay, obviously, this junk has to go Oh, my God! I know! A porch swing! So then Nick and I can rock the baby together.
You're gonna be a great mother.
Dad, where's mom? She's next door, but don't bother her.
She's got a phone session with her new therapist.
She found somebody we're kind of excited about.
Cool.
I know, I've been kind of busy, and preoccupied, but how's things going with you and Courtney? You know We're I'm not prying, okay? It's none of my business.
I'm gonna run down to Grandstand and grab some burgers.
You want anything? I'm gay.
Good.
So, you want anything? Maybe I'll just come with you to Grandstand.
Cool.
I think you should tell mom about that guy you beat up.
How was your session? Really Intense.
Marshall came out to me tonight.
Officially? Marshmallow.
- How'd you take it? - I don't know.
I guess it gave me some hope.
I'm just glad you found someone.
Me too.
I did a bad thing.
Excuse me? Do you mind? I'm finishing up a session.
Hold on, Dolores.
Can I help you?
