- You're kidding, right? - I hope you don't mind that I picked Nathan Jr.
up from school today.
I convinced the board to reissue - "The Raccoon and the Rock.
" - What? I wanna get this right, Jenny.
- Your pregnancy is high-risk.
- No, it's not.
Jesus, Lionel, what is going on with us? Wait, are you hiding something? - What are you doing here? - Is Annie here? No! No thank you! - You released some chapters.
- The cat's out of the bag.
Big mistake.
Now, with pinworm season on the horizon, I thought it only appropriate we talk about our fears.
- Mom? Mom? Oh! - Oh God.
Joseph, Jacob? What are you We know we're supposed to register and shit, but can Crystal join your little group? - Who is she? - Oh, just our girlfriend! - "Our?" - Yeah! Full of our seed.
- Mm-hmm.
- What? Val, I think they're trying to tell you - that you're gonna be a grandma.
- Oh wait, - which one of you is the father? - Oh, we don't know.
- What?! - Hang on a second.
How does this work, exactly? Is this like a threesome situation? He's my brother! Gross! Maya, don't pull back the veil on this.
So she can join? Of course, the more the merrier.
- Exactly! Nice! - Unbelievable.
My dudes, please treat Crystal here like - you would your own mother.
- Come on! - Okay, bye! Mm! Have fun! - Okay! Thank you.
Thank you, dudes.
Peace! All right! I'm on fire! So, what are you guys talking about? Oh, um uh, Val? Oh, just my biggest fear.
Which is certainly not my two monstrous children making me a grandma before my time by sharing the vagina of a woman who doesn't even care what semen she's cooking.
It's not that.
It's uh It's really not.
So what is it? Why do we come to this thing? I don't know.
I don't know.
- Let's run.
- Mm-hmm.
I know! I told her, too, but she wouldn't listen.
What the hell? Hey buddy, who you talkin' to? Just talkin' to the wall? That's kinda fun.
But, you know, it's late.
No, I'm talking to her.
Who's uh, who's her? The lady.
Uh huh.
She's watching you.
Okay, I don't like that.
I'm telling you, he was just standing there.
Like, clearly responding to someone.
- Mm-hmm.
- Pausing to let them speak, nobody there.
Ugh! Okay, well it's one of two things: Either Charlie has an imaginary friend or, and this is a big or, - Charlie has contacted a spirit.
- What? Kids see ghosts! My aunt Mona saw ghosts all the time when she was a kid, and she was the life of the party.
- Was? - Well, no one's seen her in 15 years.
- Great news! - It was benign? Two for two! I am unkillable! But that's not the news, Chapter-gate worked.
What do you mean, how do you know? We've been getting nothing but press requests for Rebecca Anderson since those leaked pages.
Yes, yes, yes! We are winning! We are killing! We are poppin' off! Did I not use that correctly or what? What - No, you did.
- I mean, it was like, - perfect, actually.
- Hmm! Check me out.
Oh, uh, you have that pitch session with the cereal - company this afternoon, right? - Holey Loops.
Let's keep up the momentum, huh? You still think you can talk 'em out of that dreadful slogan? I think I can convince them to listen to reason.
Keep on poppin' off! Nailed it again there, eh? Yes! Okay! Okay, okay, okay, okay! Can't stop, I'm afraid.
She's at the wheel.
She's at the wheel I should work on the cereal thing, though.
So was everyone excited to find out you were pregnant? Oh, my reveal was usurped.
No! By who? Nina Harris.
An emotionally charged brown-noser at Wynston.
Oh, and she got "The Raccoon and the Rock" re-issued.
- But I thought you were - Yeah, me too.
But I guess the new girl gets whatever she asks for.
Oh, and by the way, I am also going to be her mentor, - at her request.
- That's actually a huge compliment.
Oh, I'm telling you, I don't trust this bitch.
I have worked too hard and too long to be replaced.
So if Wynston thinks that I am just gonna step aside for some What are you lookin' at?! Whoa! Sorry.
You know, it sounds like you and Nina - are just very different people.
- Clearly.
But you know what? Everybody in this park is different.
And you see that thing up there? It still shines down on all of us.
Because there's always enough sunshine to go around.
It was in my horoscope this morning.
But, you gotta admit, there's something to that.
You know, I don't usually date guys like you.
Adorably prophetic? Charming? Corny? White? - Five figure salary? - Dealer's choice.
Well, I'm gonna go with charming, then.
Just answer! No, no! We're closed, Abby.
We're closed! Hi, Dr.
Vance? Yeah, it's Jenny Matthews, your high-risk, cute patient.
Um, so I'm spotting and cramping.
Yeah, but I've spotted before.
That doesn't necessarily mean I'm gonna miscarry, right? Well, how do I how do I make it stop? Okay.
This timing, it's like, it's like, not great.
And there's something that I really need to do before it happens Well, shit, how long do I have? - There you are! - There you are, I was actually - looking for you.
- Why? N-Never mind, I don't care.
Good news, we're getting married today.
What are you talking about? I called City Hall and there was a cancellation, so we can get married in like, 40 minutes.
I thought you said we're "too hot" - for a city hall wedding.
- We are, but to be honest, it-it's a lot.
Planning a wedding, and, and there's just too much on my plate right now, so, let's go, exit's this way.
Yeah, I just gotta check in with Gena first.
- Come on this way.
- Bitch better be ready! Surprise! It's a waby shower! It's a wedding and baby shower.
You get it? You're not the only one full of surprises today.
Thanks for letting me in, Annie.
It's so nice to see you again.
So, when did you get into town? - Yesterday! - How would I possibly know? And why are you here, exactly? Well, the thing that I'm doing now, um, and think of it like a really intense workout on a stairmaster, but with like 12 steps.
So you're getting clean? Yes! But only from my sex addiction.
And I'm going around to everyone that I've ever harmed to make amends.
Tomé, you did not need to get on a plane and come all this way just to tell me that I kissed your husband, and it wasn't right! But, to be fair, I was in a benzo-vision, and we we had heat.
- Is this true? - Um Uh, well, I mean, like Uh, the-like, there's a Uh, like, in a way, there's a part of it that like, could be a lit - like, a little bit true.
- Which part? Technically, the - you know, the kiss part.
- The kiss part, Lionel?! - That's the worst part! - It was a graze! - It was a graze! - What the fuck - is wrong with you? - Oh, honey, let me explain - Don't touch me! - Oh, no, no, Annie, it was my fault.
- Yes, it was her fault! - Yeah, it will never happen again! It barely even happened in the first place! Shut up! You have been giving me nothing but shit about that whole getting kicked out of the courtroom thing, and this whole time, behind my back, you kissed this?! Do you want me to kill you?! - No, not my face! - Anne! Oh! Oh my God, Annie! Hey, you're bleeding.
- Hey, Anne, you're bleeding.
- I'm fine.
Do not follow me! Come on, let me take care of you.
- No.
- Um, Annie, I don't think I can actually leave until I get that forgiveness.
Tomé, get the fuck out of my house.
Thanks again for taking me to lunch.
You know, I, I kinda thought that maybe you didn't like me.
I was a bit worried I had stepped on your toes with the whole "Raccoon and the Rock" thing.
Well there's enough sunshine for everybody, right? I just really wanted to impress you, it's not very often you get to sit across from someone of your credentials.
Anyone can get the credits if they work hard enough.
Yeah, but that's not all there is to it, right? What about the stuff they don't teach you, like, reading people.
Sure, I mean, yeah, being intuitive is important, mm-hmm.
And your drive, I mean, it's not every woman who puts her career above starting a family.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but, uh Wait, what? You are not pregnant! You're braver than I thought.
Thank you.
Yeah, I've-I've barely told anyone, and um it feels really good to.
Oh! Are you crying? No! You're gonna make me cry! You started it.
- Not now! - Go away! I gotta tell you, we are such big fans of Holey Loops cereal around here.
We love all the flavors.
The variety is second to none.
Now, I'd love to talk to you about the slogan.
No, we don't touch the slogan.
Oh, uh "A hole for every taste.
" Came up with it myself.
- Pretty proud of it, actually.
- Uh huh.
I just um, I don't think it speaks to the product.
- How do you mean? - Well, do you worry, you know, that it could be misconstrued? All the "hole" talk, a little bit confusing.
Uh, I don't think it's confusing at all.
It's hole-shaped cereal, that comes in many flavors.
So it satisfies every taste.
It's quite simple, actually.
Even a complete idiot could understand it.
Uh huh.
Thank you for coming in today.
I know this focus group was short notice, but we wanted to get your thoughts and reactions on a particular slogan.
What kind of product do you think this is a slogan for? It's for flavored dental dams, duh! Interesting, sure.
Any other guesses? - Forrest? - What are dental dams? They're condoms, - but for muff-diving.
- What?! I've been putting myself at risk for all these years? I'm so sorry.
I'll show you how they work if you wanna suit up.
For real? Okay, so, it's uh, it's not a dental dam.
How could it be a slogan for anything but a dental dam? I can't believe you pulled this off so quickly.
Are you kidding? These people have nowhere else to be.
They're definitely proving your point.
Maybe it's just me, but when it comes to dental dams, I actually prefer the rubber flavor.
Like, what kinda rubber, though? Tire? Rain boot? Yeah, this is insane, how are they supposed to understand this without context? Fair, totally fair.
So, what if I told you that "a hole for every taste" was a cereal slogan? Ohhhh! - Nice! - See? They get it.
Because like, the whole world gets to taste it.
Wrong spelling of "hole," but very close.
Ah, we're gettin' close, we're gettin' close.
- Yeah.
- Because it's in a hole.
And they're hole-they're - I guess they're confused.
- Hmm! What, is it like, whole milk, maybe? Which hole do you put the cereal in? - Is it dealer's choice? - No, no, no, no! It tastes like different holes! Nope, wrong again, whew! Oh my God, guys! It's hole-shaped cereal that comes in many flavors! - Why didn't you just say that? - I did! Holes are all kinds of shapes, man.
- So stupid.
- I think I used to work here.
Okay, you've made your point.
I'll talk to my partners, and we'll set up a follow-up.
I think that's really smart, yeah.
We're clean, you're dirty! What's that chanting? Ugh! So many protests in the neighbourhood, very hip.
So maybe we could sit down next week? Uh, Kate? A word? Just uh, one sec.
And then we Urgent! Sorry, uh, it's urgent.
- It's urgent, so just - Mm-hmm.
What? Looks like Goldie's got an army outside the building.
We're clean, you're dirty! Sorry, are they protesting you? I don't I think we're gonna hold off on that follow-up meeting.
We're clean, you're dirty! We're clean, you're dirty! We're clean, you're dirty! We're clean, you're dirty! We're clean, you're dirty! - Okay.
- We're clean, you're dirty! Okay, let's just calm down.
What's your plan, exactly, Kate? - Because that's an angry mob.
- He's right.
- Things could get ugly, fast! - Would you two stop? I'm sure these people will listen to some good, old-fashioned communication.
Ugh! - We're clean, you're dirty! - Oh! Ah! Ohh! Okay! Okay.
Okay, someone brought eggs.
Guys, listen to me, all right, I empathize with your situation.
- Hey oh! Oh! - Oh! Oh.
- Okay! - Oh no! Well, it looks like people don't want you to sabotage their livelihood, Kate! - Oh! Okay! All right! - Oh oh, no.
Okay! It hurts! Oh dear, do you need some Goldie's Goodness to clean that up with? Ah? Good job, ladies.
This one is from me, it's um A three pack of soothers, yeah, thanks, Gare.
Hey, Jenny, just slow down.
You look very sweaty.
Well, maybe if it wasn't so goddamn hot in here! Okay, uh, these people put a lot of time and energy - into this, honey, okay? - Yeah, but, City Hall We can go later.
A few weeks isn't going to kill anybody.
All right, next is Louise.
I know I gave you a hard time, but I do wish the best for both of you, and I can't wait to meet that little one! I thought it was funny, 'cause, you know, we all work together.
It's very clever.
Hey, Jenny, you okay in there? - Uh huh.
- Come on, you gotta admit, that onesie's pretty damn cute.
- Uh huh.
- Well, the cake is almost gone, so you better hurry up.
I'll see you out there? - Uh huh.
- Okay.
Okay, moving on to "The Raccoon and the Rock.
" Where we at here, guys? Sloane, you connect with the author? Actually, I was hoping that I could do that.
Well, uh, I've already cultivated a relationship with the author, so I think it's probably best if I handle that invitation.
Mm, it's just, I'd kinda like to take a crack at spearheading this whole account.
- Excuse me? - Well, I think it makes sense that I run point on this one.
I mean, I am the one that got you guys to pull the trigger.
And don't you want someone capable running the account once Sloane's not around? Wait, you going somewhere? Well, I-I assume you'll go on mat leave.
Wait, are you pregnant? Congratulations, Sloane! Oh my God, how far along, wow! Oh my God, we should- we should do something! Anne? If you think I would betray you by making out with Tomé, we have bigger problems.
Just shut the fuck up and go away! Why are you so mad? Because something happened, and you didn't tell me! Because I didn't want to go through this! This is why you belong in Anger Management, Anne.
Because I think that you are addicted to being angry.
And sometimes I think that you enjoy being like this.
Nobody likes being angry.
That's ridiculous.
Is it? Because you don't even try to control it anymore.
You just let 'er rip, and frankly, I am sick of it.
I mean, it used to be charming, you just saying whatever you thought all the time, but now Now I am honestly afraid of you.
Do you get that I walk on eggshells around you, just trying to tiptoe through your emotions? And the saddest part of it is that um when I was in Cochrane without you, was the happiest I've been in a uh really, really long time.
No! Uh-uh.
What are you doin' here? - I'm here to see my nephew.
- No, you can't.
Okay, I have every right to see my own flesh and blood - whenever I want.
- No.
No more pop-ins, okay? If you want to see Nathan Jr.
, you need to let me know 48 hours in advance.
Okay, that's ridiculous.
Well, he's with us, as per his mother's wishes, so from now on, I expect 72 hours notice before you show up here.
Excuse me.
Well, I like to be a lot more spontaneous than that.
Because I like to live in the moment.
I don't care what your crystals and your numerology charts tell you.
When it comes to that boy, I want it in writing.
One week two weeks in advance.
Is that egg in your hair? No.
Come on! Hi! Hi, Ms.
Foster, this is Headmaster Brown.
I'm calling about Charlie.
I-I think you should know that he was acting a little strangely today.
He said he was talking to a ghost, something about a dead woman? Oh God, yeah, this whole thing.
I'm sorry, I don't know where it's coming from.
Well, he mentioned something about his new brother, I wonder if that might have something to do with his situation? Oh right.
So did you tell Charlie about death? I'm-I didn't mean to.
I-he was asking so many questions, and then he asked me where my mom was, and I didn't know what to say.
I'm-I'm sorry.
No, of course, hey.
I'm not-I'm not angry.
I can only imagine what that must've Hey, where Sorry, where is Charlie? I don't know.
Uh oh my God! Hey, what are you doin'? Charlie What do you got there? I'm gonna go see her.
