Workin' Moms (2017) s02e02 Episode Script

The Sign

1 FRANKIE: Previously on "Workin' Moms": Frankie, I know you've been sleeping with patients.
If you take the job, you're gonna have to cut it out.
Mm hmm.
You had a secret vasectomy.
You know how fucked up that is? You even wanna be here? Do you wanna be with us? - I don't know.
- Okay, Zoe and I are not gonna be a part of your experiment no more.
Wait! Those will be his last words.
DAD: Shit, I just stepped in shit.
[VOICE] End of message.
[KATE LAUGHS] [BABIES COO] Okay, guys, I'm gonna tell this story once, and then we're gonna move on.
Deal? Kate, we are here for you.
Is it true it was a bus? Val! Was he on a bus? Heard it was a bike.
I heard it was a school bus, and he was driving.
Kate, was your father a bus driver? A good, honest profession? Okay, okay.
My Dad was breaking in some new sneakers.
And uh, stumbled into the bike lane.
Where he was hit by a bike.
Which launched him into a bus.
The good news is that he died before the bus hit him due to asphyxiation.
He choked on a cough drop.
[VAL COUGHS] So, Kate, we'd like to present you with this grieving plant.
This is this is very nice.
Thank you.
Now you can have a say in the cycle of life.
Of that plant.
- We handled this very well.
- [DOOR OPENS] - Is this toddler time? - I know that baby! Zoe! So glad you made it.
Ladies, Ian asked if he could join, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to hear about the struggles of being a father, a single father if I'm not mistaken.
Uh, yeah, so, Jenny and I separated.
- It's better this way.
- Mm.
No joke, I love not having a partner.
You don't have to deal with anyone else's shit.
In my house, I'm king and queen.
- It's like uh, 2-in-1 shampoo.
- So not great at either? Uh, so, how does this work? Do you have like a drop-off program for when we go to work? There is a daycare in the building, but I do not run it.
Okay.
So uh, so we're paying to sit here while our kids play.
As if we were at the park? Well, Ian, playing at the park won't guarantee your child a spot at the best school in the city.
Of course.
[BABY CRIES] There you go, buddy.
I hear the rain on the rooftop ANNE: Kate Foster.
Kate.
Oh, hey.
Why didn't you call me after it all went down? Oh uh, I'm sorry.
No, it's just, it's a lot to process.
I just feel like I could help.
Thank you.
I get it.
- Anne? - Hmm? I don't need your help right now.
Right, absolute-Okay.
Sorry.
[RUMBLES OFF] You tear me down And we do it all over again And again Cannonball [POT SMASHES] I tell you no then you start to give in You tear me down and we do it all over again - Oh, hey.
Where you been? - Oh.
Sorry, I just got off the phone with the office.
Looks like I do have to go into work.
- Oh, no, no, no, no.
- What would your father say? Probably to stop eating coffee cake get back to work.
She's always dealt with grief oddly.
When my mother died, she skipped school and spent the day alphabetizing my cosmetics.
Like a psychopath.
Go! Go! I hope you find comfort with your coworkers.
- It's okay, Eleanor.
- [ELEANOR SOBS] Well, we all mourn differently.
ELEANOR: Hmm.
Really, it's a great script.
It's silly, it's touching.
You know who would love this script? - Who? - Plan B.
- Isn't that -Yeah, Brad Pitt's production company.
This is right up his alley.
I don't know if you did this on purpose, but it's like that lead character was written for Jeremy Piven.
- The guy from Entourage? - Yeah, he's my cousin.
Cool.
Yeah, cool.
All right, so let's get this script into fighting shape.
I will hand it over to the studio and we will be off to the races.

It's kinda like you don't even exist.
Poof.
