Okay, cool.
Hey, you did great today.
Hey. Thanks.
Oh, I'm all sweaty.
(rock music plays)
You killed it
out there.
I guess. Would have
been nice to win though.
Well, you got a trophy.
I got a medal.
So did two other girls.
Well, I'm allowed
to be proud of you, so.
Proud of me, too?
Yes, I am.
What for?
You're a very
special person.
A very special snowflake.
That's right.
A special snowflake.
Okay, what'll it be?
Your turn.
Well, you're
the big winner,
you decide.
You know, you never choose.
You should get some say
around here.
(clicks tongue)
You know, if that's how
you want to spend your turn,
You will both
be asleep so soon,
it won't matter.
Oh, yeah, yeah.
That, lady, is BS.
(sighs deeply)
Woman: ...strikes midnight,
all the evil things
in the world will arrive.
Man: The stories
are not always pleasant

Go safely, and leave
some of the happiness
you bring.

Nope, inappropriate.
It's just one of those
society things, sis.
Go change.
Need any help?
Uh, you don't have
time to help.
Go get dressed.
I don't know what
I'd do without you.
Good morning.
What is it?
Nothing, no,
it's just...
Actually, I wanted to talk
to you guys about--
Oh, no.
What is it?
Not what. Her.
When's she coming?
Next week.
I like her.
You do?
Look, I just
want you to be happy.
Me, too.
But can I just
say one thing?
And it's about
what's right for you,
so you just can't get mad at me.
Well, I reserve the right
to get mad, but you can
say what you like.
I'd-- I'd rather see you
with someone else.
Wow, now I am
a little mad.
Wait, why?
Well, listen,
I mean, you get a vote,
but it's after the third
or fourth date,
you don't get one
a year and a half later.
I'm sorry, I just--
Listen, I play more
than fair with you.
I haven't had her
over here for sleepovers...
...that you know of, anyway.
Way TMI, Dad!
But I want-- I want her
to be part of our lives.
Look, she could really
help you out around here.
You could be like
a real 17-year-old
instead of a superhero
Well, I like
superhero 17.
Penny for your thoughts.
I'm nervous, you know?
What are you talking about?
The girls love you.
I just...
have this feeling that--
Look, it's gonna be
a shakeup, but...
I think that's
a good thing.
I just don't want them
to associate me
with disruption.
No, disruption, that's--
that's a good thing.
I mean, I need disruption.
I know, but she's seventeen.
I remember that age,
I mean, she's gonna
have opinions.
Listen, if you're
having second thoughts,
you got to tell me...
No, no, no.
...because I put the deposit
on the moving truck, and--
I'm just... thinking out loud.
I think...
I'm gonna make
a good friend for them.
Wow. Wow, you are just--
you are such a toxic presence,
I don't know how
this is gonna work.

What do you mean?
You're not scared,

It'll make my job easier.
You can do this.
(Abby giggling)
I just--
I wanna
thank you girls
for letting me
into your home
and your hearts.
I love your dad
very much and...
I'm looking forward
to being your--
Maybe I could be
a bit of both.
Uh... Momster.
(Abby giggles)
Ooh. Now, that
has a ring to it.
(metal clanking)
What are you doing?
it's a new start, right?
She doesn't know
you were married?
What? No, of course
she does. I just--
you know,
we want to make her
feel welcomed.
It's a new start
for me too, you know.
I don't remember her.
You know what?
She loved you very much.
Do you want to put that
in your room? Would that
make you feel good?
Wow! It's up already?
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Are you sure that it fits?
Yes! Yeah, totally.
Very much so.
We can do
a "Game of Thrones" thing.
(garage door opening)
finally doing okay.
I've been trying so hard.
Don't worry.
I'll keep it that way.
Good stuff.
Make it all
the way through
this one?
Can't blame me
for trying.
Well, you know,
Abby's a little weird,
so if you need any help,
just let me know.
There's no book for her.
Thanks. That'd be great.

When did this start?
You'll have to wait.
It's dinnertime.
Just the other day.
Hey, Abs, what's the deal?
Do you...
What's the deal?
Do you like her?
She eats a lot of green things.
I think imaginary friends
can actually be healthy.
Yeah. Not as healthy
as real ones.
Meh. Let her explore.
Did you just say "meh,"
like, phonetically?
Oh. Is that not
how you do it?
No, Momster,
it's Internet speak only.
Are you sure
you're only 29?
(laughs) Just different
interests, I guess.
Okay, here we go,
here we go, here we go.
First two.
Uh, I got a medium.
That's a medium.
And medium rare.
Sesame seeds?
Uh, hemp seeds.
I run track.
They test, you know.
Oh, don't worry,
it won't show up.
And if it did,
weed never made anyone
run any faster.
It's okay, Kellie.
Um, it's got omega 3s.
Your dad loves it.
Yeah, load me up.
Yeah, um,
it adds an extra crunch.
I like it.
And your brain
likes it, too.
I would like
to propose a toast.
Um... to, um...
welcoming Robin
into our home
and into our family.
Thank you. Cheers.
(glass shatters)
James: Jesus!
Are you okay?
Uh, I'm fine...
Um, could you grab me
a paper towel?
(inhales sharply)
I'm sorry.
Yeah, it's pretty deep.
Thank you. I'm sorry.
(Robin groans)
It's never been this exciting.
Are you okay?
(gasps, sighs)
Boy: Hey!
Jesus Christ,
you scared me!
You can't be here
right now.
Wait, why not?
My dad's here.
He's never here
on Tuesdays.
Well, now, she's here
and that's changed.
Well, that sucks.
Didn't you see the cars?
We have
talked about this.
Oh, come on,
you know we're
more than friends.
How's that?
I can tell by the way
you look at me.
Look, they won't
hear anything, all right?
I mean, they're probably
going at it right now.
And you want to do it
in sync with them? Eww.
Besides, I don't--
I don't want to think
of him that way.
Like, with another woman?
No. No, I mean,
no one wants to think
of their dad doing anything.
The seeds were stupid.
I should have asked
before putting them on.
No, you know
that's just not true.
She really liked them.
But it's my first night here,
and I'm messing
with her food.
(laughs quietly)
Not good.
I know I'm not their mom.
Kellie's obviously fine...
but... Abby...
Abby is so young.
There's so much
to protect her from.
(window slams)
(Abby screams)
What happened?
Someone slammed
the window!
What? No one slammed
the window, it just fell.
Listen, I'll fix it later.
It's too cold to have it
open right--
What is he doing here?
Getting me grounded.
(clears throat)
I don't know what I was
thinking. I just...
Are you really gonna
be grounded?
Please, he's wrapped
around my finger.
Well, pretty soon
he'll be wrapped around
your step-mom's.
She's not my step-mom.
Not yet.
You gotta cut that out.
I'm not tired.
I've heard that one before.
You know, I can lay here
with you, if you want.
Did Dad give you that?
Why doesn't Daddy
talk about how she died?
Well, um...
it's not very fun
to talk about.
Mommy wasn't...
It wasn't a good time
for Daddy and Mommy.
But all you need to know
is that she loved you
very much.
Here, lay on your stomach.
I'll show you how she used to
put me to sleep.

Good morning.
you didn't-- you didn't
have to do that.
I normally get it.
It's a part of my routine.
Oh, no, you've got school.
I'm sure you have to cram
or whatever.
It can be my routine.
I kind of think that Abby's
pretty used to my--
This is really good.
(computer chimes)
(gasps) Ah!
I sold another one!
Of those things?
Be nice.
So, did you get
back to sleep
after your little
adventure last night?
Yeah, but...
the window didn't shut
like Dad said it did.
Oh, no?
It was cold, so...
she shut it.
Who shut it?
Let's not really
talk about this.
I think it was... Mom.
Hey, Abs, um...
it wasn't Mom.
She's not here anymore.
I'm sure she's here
in some way.
it is an honor
to be in your home...
with your two
beautiful daughters.
Thank you.
I'm sorry, um,
are you trying to talk
to a ghost?
Because ghosts are scary,
even if it is Mom--
which it isn't.
No, no, of course not. I--
I was just thinking
more along the lines
of a therapeutic--
Therapeutic is not
talking to walls.
So, what makes you think
it's her? Why now?
She's been here all along.
I just haven't been
looking for her.
(footsteps approach)
Well, you're never gonna
believe it, look at this.
I'm actually running
on time for once.
(rock music playing)
(breathing hard)
Hey, kiddo.
I need you to do me
a little bit of a solid.
What's that?
How would you feel
about integrating Robin
a little more?
She's been here
for 24 hours,
and I'm already two-for-two
on meals, Dad.
I just want her
to feel welcome, you know?
And you could stand to do
a little bit of decorating.
Did she make you say that?
No, no.
It's a lot better
if it comes from you.
(rock music continues)
Why are
we selling
our stuff?
Oh, it's not all our stuff.
It's her stuff, too.
We're just, uh,
getting rid of the old
to make room for the new.
Hey, fam.
Hey, Bernard.
Hey, Grandpa.
How's my favorite grandkid?
I'm just kidding.
It's a tie.
Hey, James.
How are you?
Hi! I'm Robin.
Oh. I'm Bernard.
Um, you two don't--
you've never met before?
Uh, Bernard is my
Nice to meet you.
You, too.
What are you doing with that?
We can't sell that!
Oh, uh--
oh, I'm sorry.
It didn't seem
like your style.
This was my mom's.
Oh, my God.
I would never have put it
in this pile if I thought--
I don't remember
this one.
Turquoise is a healing stone.
Why don't you try it on?
You want it, don't you?
Let's see how it looks.
Looks beautiful on you.
Now she'll be
with you always.
Let's take a look
at the rest of this garbage.

There's quite a bit

Teacher: What does
the law of conservation
of energy state?
That energy can neither
be created or destroyed.
Very good.
And what can energy do
under this law?
It-- it can change form.
That's correct,
but we still
raise our hands
around here.

I'm sorry.
Can I be excused?
Hi, there. You guys called.
I'm here to pick up Abby.
She's not here.
What do you mean?
Her mom picked her up.
Okay, her mom's dead.
You know that, right?
No, I am... so sorry.
So, not her mom.

for you, too.
You made this for me?
I think
it's really important
that you feel a connection
with her.
And I want you to know
that I am here for you,

Is that my mom's stuff?
I thought that since
you got to keep--
Could you ask before doing
things like this, please?
I mean,
she's already fixated.
Your dad and I talked about it.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, she can--
she can have it. I...
It's just-- it's weird...
seeing all of her stuff again.
I miss her.
Of course you do.
She was great.
One of a kind.
It was really sweet,
what you did for Abby today.
I just...
I don't want her to think
I'm trying to replace
a perfect mom.
Part of you has to wish
she was still here.
What? No.
She was my choice back then,
but you're my choice now.
You are not
second fiddle.
Besides, she wasn't perfect.
What do you mean?
Something happened to her.
I don't know what.
It was like...
It was like the joy
got sucked out of her.
It was like something
was tormenting her.
I don't know what it was.
maybe it was guilt.
Maybe it was somebody else.
When they found
her body,
she was not
wearing her ring.
Oh, sweetie,
I'm sorry.
I just--
I wonder...
about everything.
