Young Sheldon (2017) s05e20 Episode Script

Uncle Sheldon and a Hormonal Firecracker

Previously on Young Sheldon I'm pregnant.
I heard them talking about a baby.
- Oh, my.
- You know what that means.
- Mom's pregnant.
- Exactly.
Everybody loves a wedding.
I'm having a baby.
I don't need to marry another one.
Mary, they already made one giant mistake.
They don't have to make another.
So marrying me was a mistake.
You're honestly happy with how your life turned out? You have no regrets? What do you want me to say? I want you to admit that this marriage hasn't exactly been a bed of roses.
Wake up.
No marriage is a bed of roses.
- Well, then I guess we nailed it.
- I guess we did.
Can you take Missy to school today? Why? It's on your way.
I have to drop the church bulletin off at the printer.
Nobody reads those things.
I know we're not getting along right now, but when we walk into that kitchen, Missy and Sheldon do not need to see us fighting.
So, you'll take her? Whatever you say, dear.
Mom and Dad are still really upset.
With good reason.
She's awfully old to be having a baby.
Is it really dangerous? Not with modern science, but back in pioneer times, we'd be burying her down by the crick.
I'm just saying they're cranky enough, so don't be a pain in the ass.
I'm always on my best behavior.
You're the hormonal firecracker around here.
And thar she blows.
Moby Dick.
It's a book.
Where the hell's my travel mug? I think Georgie took it, dear.
That son of a gun.
Missy, your father's gonna take you to school today.
Thanks, Daddy.
I hope it's not too much trouble.
No trouble at all, my little angel.
Why'd you say they're cranky? They're fine.
Okay, you can do this.
Just tell him.
Everything okay? Oh! What? Yes.
What are you doing there? I came for the stapler but stayed for the show.
Well, I was just going in - to talk to Pastor Jeff.
- Hmm.
Then go.
- I'm going.
- Do it.
I'm doing it.
See? Very convincing.
Come in.
What's up? I was hoping to get your take on something.
Of course.
Um This isn't really about me, but I recently met a young woman who got pregnant, um out of wedlock.
I see.
Is the young man in the picture? He is.
Well, as long as they tie the knot before the bambino pops out, the big guy looks the other way.
Right, right.
But the woman isn't so keen on knots or tying them.
Then I'm afraid she and that poor baby are in for a difficult time.
I know.
Um What about the parents of the young couple? Well, they certainly didn't raise these kids with the right values.
I only get them one day a week.
The rest of it's on Mom and Dad.
Um Oh.
But, um what if the boy's parents did want to do the right thing? I don't see how it's their fault.
Well, didn't the boy still have premarital sex which led to pregnancy? Yes.
You have to ask, where were his parents? Mm-hmm.
These are all good questions.
Okay, let's take a look at the board now, Judy, Lisa, and see what subjects we're dealing with in this match of Tic-Tac-Dough.
Famous Blondes, Trivia Dare, Explorers Colors, Geology, Top Ten, Movies I'll be right back, Wink.
- What? - We know what's going on at home.
And we need to talk.
I'm in the middle of something important.
So are we.
Um, may I please come in? thousand eight hundred What's up? Why won't Mom and Dad tell us what's going on? Well, there might be several reasons for that, but right off the top of my head, I'd say none of your damn business.
Mom's having a baby, and that's none of our business? Is that what you think's going on? - Isn't it? - No.
Then what's going on? None of your damn business.
We need to talk.
Kind of busy.
This is important.
I was talking to Pastor Jeff about our little situation.
- Why would you tell him? - He doesn't know it's Georgie.
But people are gonna find out eventually, and they're gonna judge all of us.
Who cares what people think? I care.
We live in this town.
I work at the church.
Hello? Heads up.
The twins were just here, and they were asking a bunch of questions.
You didn't tell them, did you? No, but they know there's a baby in the mix.
Actually, they thought you were having it.
Oh, Lord.
Anyway, they're gonna be there any minute.
Have fun.
What now? We're home.
And we want answers.
In here.
We want to know what's going on.
And we know it has something to do with a baby.
- And we know it's not yours.
- So whose is it? This is a private matter, and it does not concern you.
It's Georgie.
- You don't know that.
- It all makes sense.
You were talking with him in the garage the other night.
And word on the street is he's sexually active.
So, who's preggers? - Yes, who? - All right.
Family meeting now.
- I'll leave you to it.
- George! Fudge.
Okay, yes, your Your brother's gonna have a baby.
- With whom? - Her name is Mandy.
Ooh, she's the one that's older than him.
How much older? That's not important.
- That means a lot.
- Thank you.
- Do I really need to be here for this? - Yes.
Double fudge.
Are they getting married? - We don't know, but probably.
- Mary.
It would be better for them and better for the baby.
And better for you so your church friends don't get bent out of shape.
We'll talk about this later.
Ooh, a subcommittee just formed.
The important thing is, is that you both need to keep this quiet.
This is family business.
I have to keep a secret? I'm not good at those.
It's not a secret.
No one's gonna ask you about it.
It's just a thing you don't need to bring up.
But what if I do? What if you don't? But now it's all I can think about.
What if my mouth loses control? You're good at keeping promises, right? - Very.
- Great.
Then promise you won't tell anybody.
That's an interesting work-around.
However - You're not telling anyone.
- Fine.
I'm gonna be an aunt.
That's so weird.
Not as weird as Uncle Sheldon.
Yeah, well, we're gonna be grandparents.
And Meemaw's gonna be a great-grandmother.
That sounds so old.
Please tell her that.
Good night, Wade.
It ain't good.
I lost all my money.
Well, good for me.
Yeah, yeah.
Hey, Mandy.
It's me again.
Just wanted to see how you were doing.
If there's anything you need, I'm around.
Please call me back.
She ducking your calls? Seems like it.
Well, you understand why she might not want to talk to you.
Yes, I know.
I'm trying to make up for it.
This might be one of those things you just can't make up for.
Ain't fair.
You better do some growing up fast, 'cause "fair" left the building the second you yanked your pants down.
Thanks for making me feel worse.
What is the angular momentum of the neutron and the proton inside deuterium? No one? Really? - Sheldon? - Yes? What is the angular momentum of the neutron and the proton inside deuterium? Oh, um, "L" equals zero.
You're missing the four percent admixture of "L" equals two.
I'm a little distracted.
It happens.
Anyway Normally, I would have gotten that right.
I have no doubt.
Anyway There are just some things going on at home, and I'm not allowed to talk about it.
And we don't want to hear about it.
I can tell you no one's sick in case you're concerned.
Anyone concerned? Show of hands.
No? Moving on.
That's why I got the answer wrong.
Son, it's just a mistake.
Everyone makes them.
Like my brother Georgie did when he got that girl pregnant.
Don't say it.
Don't say it.
Don't say it.
What? I need to use the restroom.
This is college.
Just go.
You, red shirt.
Lock the door.
Knock, knock.
Oh, hi.
Just thought I'd show you how to do it on the first try.
You all right? Um Yeah.
- Just, you know, life.
- Mm.
I've heard that can be rough.
Well, if you ever want to talk or grab a smoke, I'm around.
I'm good, thanks.
Although, um A cigarette doesn't sound bad.
I was hoping someone would help me get to the end of this pack.
- Then we're quitting.
- Absolutely.
- It's a disgusting habit.
- Filthy.
You are never gonna believe what I just heard.
Try me.
Roy and the boosters were wining and dining that coach from Carthage.
I don't even care anymore.
He can have my job.
Well, if you don't care, why can't I have it? Fine, take it.
Are you okay? Oh, jim-dandy.
Is this one of those times where you say you don't want to talk about it, and then you make me go to the bar, and then you talk about it? No.
All right.
I'm gonna tell you something.
Lay it on me.
This is serious.
You can't tell anyone.
Georgie got a girl pregnant.
Congratulations? On having a dope for a son? Thanks.
Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but weren't you a similar kind of dope with Mary? It's different.
Georgie's, like, 11 years younger than this girl.
That is different.
We're gonna need a couple shots over here.
Sorry again for being distracted earlier.
And I'm so sorry you got locked out.
I don't know how that happened.
My brother got a girl pregnant.
My mom wanted me to promise I wouldn't tell, but I never did, so technically, I'm not breaking my word.
I don't care.
Thank you.
But it's a secret, so please don't tell anyone.
- Don't you have somewhere to go? - No.
Can I tell you something in confidence? Of course.
Um, my son got a girl pregnant.
Safe to assume this was a surprise? Oh, yeah.
And safe to assume it's not Sheldon? Also yes.
Now my mom wants them to get married, but it doesn't sound like the girl's willing.
- Why are you still talking to me? - You and I just click.
So, how are you doing with all this? Oh.
Angry, upset, scared.
So all the emotions.
Got it.
And I'm worried that if he doesn't marry this girl, the congregation's gonna turn on me.
They might.
But that's putting man before God.
- What do you mean? - Well, you're caring more about what people think than what God thinks.
I'm not caring more.
I just don't have to bump into God at the grocery store.
I don't think he does his own shopping.
Well, at this point, it doesn't matter, because she doesn't want to get married.
- Well, I can talk to her if you want.
- Mm.
I'm pretty good with young people.
She's 29.
Also pretty good with people my own age.
Let's say grace.
Bless us, Lord, for the food we are about to receive, and bless the hands that prepared it.
I told Dr.
Linkletter about Georgie.
Why'd y'all tell Sheldon? They didn't.
I figured it out.
Now everyone knows.
Not everyone.
Just us and Dr.
So, that's it? - Nobody else said anything? - Mm.
'Cause her parents still don't know, and if this gets out, she's gonna be more pissed than ever.
Everything's gonna be fine.
Let's just eat.
I kind of told Heather M.
at school.
I told her to keep it a secret.
Did you keep it a secret? No.
Actually, I told someone at church today.
And I might have told Wayne.
I can't believe y'all.
I know.
You'd expect it from me, but from them, it's a shocker.
I ain't hungry.
So, if you haven't told your parents yet, you might want to, 'cause my family blabbed, and it's out there.
I know.
I know you're angry.
I'm angry, too.
Please don't hang up.
Come in.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Just wanted to say I'm really sorry.
Forget it.
You have so much to deal with right now, and I made it worse.
People are gonna find out eventually.
Do you think you're gonna get married? It ain't looking good.
Do you even want to? Well, I do like her.
And I'm trying to do the right thing.
Whatever that is.
Can't believe you're gonna be a dad.
Join the club.
Is it weird? M-More terrifying than weird.
Yeah? I don't know what I'm doing.
What if I mess this kid up? You won't.
You sure? I'm a high school dropout living out in his parents' garage.
Mandy's right to not want me around.
No, she's not.
She'd be lucky to have you.
So will the baby.
Don't make me cry more.
That's the last nice thing I'll ever say to you.
Hey, what did Wayne say when you told him? He loves babies, so he was all, "It's a blessing.
" Blah, blah, blah.
Well, he's not wrong.
Why am I friends with him? You should be.
How'd Pastor Jeff take it? I didn't tell him.
I told Pastor Rob.
Of course.
- What's that mean? - Nothing.
What? Just seems like you talk to Pastor Rob a lot.
Well, we work together.
You talk to Wayne.
And what did Pastor Rob say? Actually, it was helpful.
He pointed out that I was putting people before God and that I shouldn't worry about what the congregation thinks.
So, exactly what I said.
All you said was, "Who cares?" Next time, I'll stick God in there so you pay attention.
Where were you? - Talking to Georgie.
- He okay? We laughed, we cried.
It was nice.
Hey, Joan.
It's Mary.
Just wanted to make sure that you knew Bible study was today? Oh, no.
I'm sorry to hear that.
Mary Cooper.
Just making sure everything's okay since you're not at Bible study.
Of course.
No problem.
I understand.
It's Mary.
Do you have time to talk? For you, always.
