90210 (2008–2013): Season 5, Episode 14 - Brother from Another Mother - full transcript

Annie becomes somewhat angry at Naomi whom has tracked down their real biological half-brother Mark Holland, a local chef who owns a gourmet food truck and Naomi tries to institute herself into Mark's life by holding a CU Food Truck Cook-Off competition where Wolfgang Puck is judging. Meanwhile, Liam experiences some symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder while preparing to testify against Ashley, but he continues to refuse to talk about his feelings or deal with them. Navid falls further into the Cronos society's nefarious doings when he learns that Campbell runs a "cheaters club" in exchanging test answers to finals. Also, Silver becomes more overbearing with her surrogate Michaela whom begins to resent being Silver's pampering. Backlisted by the music industry, Adrianna is asked to substitute as a lead singer for a band in a Battle of the Bands competition at CU which Annie throws for Dixon who is looking for new fresh talent.

Previously on...

Adrianna was so worried
this morning,

when she saw Vanessa,
she told me everything.

Stop pretending you
don't know she's back.

You were on your way
to meet her.

I can't let you do that.

You'll be traveling in this.

You're going to put me in a box?

If you won't let me
protect you,

you leave me no other choice.

How long have you been
staying in L.A.?

I'm just here for a
job interview.

So, you're moving here.

I don't know if it's
going to pan out.

I mean, I got to meet you.

And take away your only chance
to have a baby.

Mr. Montgomery stipulated
you hire a third party

to carry the child.

There is one other candidate.
Shane has a sister.

You have to be
so incredibly brave

to trust somebody you just
met to carry your baby.

I'd really like the chance
to be that person.

Hey, Silver.

I will do whatever it takes
to get out of your contract

and out of your life.

I was going to release you

so you could work with him
without me.

I'm done. Okay?
You're released.


Is there a reason why you're
taking apart my sink?

Annie invested 200 grand into
my record label,

and I spent it all on
startup costs.

But then I dropped Ade,
which means I have no artist,

no income,
no way to pay my sister back.

Since Annie's living here,

I figured I'd fix the sink
so she doesn't think

of her brother as some
great, big loser.

Wouldn't it be easier just to
sign a new artist?

No established artist wants
to sign with me right now.

And all the big labels
are taking all the new ones.

So, basically, I'm screwed.

Can I help?

Can you sing?

I meant with the sink.

Yeah, apparently record labels
aren't the only thing

I can't figure out. (chuckles)

Hand me that wrench.


And, uh... here.
What are...

This doesn't even...


Is this a subpoena?

Yeah, it's no big deal.

I've got to go to court tomorrow

to testify at Ashley's
preliminary hearing.

You're testifying against
the lady that kidnapped you?

That's kind of heavy.

Are you okay?

(sighs) I'm fine.

Once I testify,
this whole thing will be over,

I never have to think about
the kidnapping again,

and my life can get finally
get back to normal.


Well, if you need a ride down
to the courthouse,

I'm your man.
I have nothing but time.

Nah, I'm actually good.

I'm going to go with Adrianna.

She's got to be down there
anyway for her...

wardrobe malfunction.

tell her to plead insanity.

(wry laugh)


Thank you for letting me go
through your closet, Silver.

I can't believe that they're
charging me

with indecent exposure.

I need something to wear in
court that screams

"I'm not a sex criminal."

All of my non-slutty clothes are
probably on the left-hand side.

I knew flashing a stadium
full of people

at a charity event would
impact my career,

but I had no idea it was going
to become my trademark.

I haven't been able to book a
gig since it happened.

And every time I talk to

I feel like they're imagining me
with my shirt off.

I'm sorry,
I really would love to talk

but I have to bolt.

I'm supposed to pick up Michaela
in, like, five minutes,

and show her around C.U.


Oh, your surrogate.

And Shane's sister.
Weird, I know.

Teddy and I are splitting
the living costs,

but I have to oversee everything

Her doctor's appointments,
her housing,

her diet, her exercise.

It's super overwhelming,
and I can't talk right now.

But help yourself to anything
in the closet

and we'll totally catch up

(door closes)


Dude, finals week sucks.

All of our extracurricular
activities are on hold,

so I don't get to watch your
buddy Liam pound anybody.


You going to Finals Frolic

There's going to be
plenty of women,

Battle of the Bands.

Yeah, maybe.

I just have to get through this
exam first.

Oh, please, God.

Don't sweat it,
you're gonna do fine.

Yeah, I wish I had your

Calculus is not my best subject.

Navid, you are a member of
the Cronus Society.

Everything is our best subject.

Just don't forget to leave
your phone on, all right?


In case I have to call with more
party info or something.

See ya, bud.
See ya.

So this is C.U.

Teddy said you were a semester
away from graduating,

so I figured we could sign
you up with some classes.

Obviously nothing too crazy,

because I don't think
an all-nighter would

be good for the baby.

Actually, school's kind of
more my family's thing.

That's why I was so excited
to get this job.

I get to move to L.A.,
meet a bunch of cool people.

Yeah, meet a bunch of
cool people, that will happen.

Maybe while you're
pregnant though,

you'll want
to learn something. Right?


This is Michaela, remember?

Oh, yeah.

We met at, uh, Dixon's place.

How's it going?

It's great.

I'm going to go grab
a course book.

Just in case.

I'll be right back.

Hey, look, thanks for not
saying anything,

about us hooking up
the other night.

Yeah, I figured
it's not the impression

you wanted to make during
your interview.

No, definitely not.

Plus, if it got back
to Teddy and Shane,

my whole family would start
freaking out

that I wasn't being like
responsible Michaela.

Even though we were totally


It's cool. I get it.

Uh. besides, Silver and I
have a complicated past,

and telling her I slept
with her surrogate

might make things
a little more complicated.

Found it.
Oh, thank you.

Oh, there is an amazing organic
smoothie place

right down the street.
I think you're going to love it.

You want to come?

Sounds extra super,

but I've got to make it
to my calculus final.

You two ladies have a great day.

Yeah, good luck.

See ya.

(phone buzzes)


Okay, Naomi,
I got your emergency text.

It better be bigger
than a shoe sale,

because I have a lot
going on right now.

Annie, this is Mark Holland.

He owns a food truck.

I told him how we need his help
planning a massive party.

We do?

I was a little surprised, too.

I appreciate you considering me,

it's just, I own a taco truck.

I'm still not clear
who gave you my number.

Annie and I have a half-brother

who was given up for adoption
before we were born.

Her father seduced my mother
at a high school dance,

and the rest is sordid
family history.

Which you just shared
with a total stranger.

And we need your help planning
a celebration

to welcome him back
into our lives.

Uh, no, we don't.

It's time.

Don't you remember what happened
the last time

a half-brother came into
our lives?

He stole money from your mother

and almost ruined our

That was completely different;
He was an impostor.

You know what?

Why don't you guys
talk privately,

figure out what you want,

and if it ends up
being a taco truck,

give me a call.

I don't know what got this
into your head,

but it is a horrible idea.

What makes you think you can
even find this person

in the first place?

Because I already did.
He's right here?

Oh, hi.

Why are you both looking at me?

He's our half-brother?


Welcome to our family.

(theme music playing)

I can't believe you
would go looking

for our half-brother without
talking to me first, Naomi.

How could you do
something like this?

I hired a P.I.

You hired someone to find me?

I am so sorry.

My divorce from Max
left a hole in my life,

one that I would usually fill by

jumping in bed with the
next man I met.

But I am trying to evolve.

So, I need a deeply personal,
yet non-sexual relationship--

like you have with Dixon--
hence, I found my brother.

So, is there a job or not?

No, I made that up
to bring you here.

All right then, take it easy.

You're leaving?

You don't want to know about...
me... about your family?

I already know about my family:

They're the people
who raised me.

The non-sexual hole
you're looking to fill

really isn't my problem.

Now, if you'd excuse me,

I have a business to run.

I can't believe
he just walked out.

Like this?

He's your brother, too, Annie.

And his temper clearly comes
from your side of the family.


You went shopping,
you wonderful woman, you.

What the heck is "spelt"?

A whole grain.

And, for the record,

all of this food
is for Michaela only.

All of it?

Which reminds me,

here's Michaela's first month's
rent check

from me and Teddy.

Look, I-I hope giving your
surrogate a room

kind of makes up for the time

I implied that you weren't ready
to be a mother.


You're really helping us out
giving us a good deal on rent,

but, feel free to keep

Dixon, your place is amazing.


God, look at that ocean.

Hey, do you think you could
teach me how to surf?

Oh, that's probably not going to

I mean, the water's, like,
really polluted and, uh...

those guys out there take really
big falls, so...

It's pretty safe, actually.

But, I wouldn't even have the
time to show you.

It's crazy.

Actually, I've got to make
my way down

to the Offshore right now.

Annie says she has a big
surprise for me.

Hopefully, it's a trust fund
that I don't know about.

See you guys later.

I actually have a
surprise for you, too.

Nothing exciting, but...

some books on pregnancy!


What to eat, what not to
eat, the whole thing.

And I signed us up
for yoga tomorrow.


Yeah. Why, do you
have something going on?

Oh, no, I mean, I just
thought since we

spent the last few days shopping
for course materials

and prenatal vitamins,

maybe I could have tomorrow off?

I don't really know what
you mean by off.

I mean, you're having my baby.

It's not like a
nine-to-five job

you can just punch a clock.

Right. So, yoga tomorrow then?

Yes, that would be awesome.

I think you're
going to love it.


Fun, fun, fun.

Oh. Psst!

Campbell, hey. Dude.

Hey, what's up?

Hey, uh, are you
out of your mind?

Why did you text me
those answers yesterday?

I was doing fine on that test.

Navid, it's no big deal,
all right?

It's just a little
something we do for

for our Cronus Society members
to keep our grades up.

Besides, you didn't have
to use the answers

if you didn't want to.

Yeah, uh,
(quietly): I couldn't help it.

Okay, once I saw them scrolling
across my phone,

I couldn't get them out
of my head.

Great, so you did
a little better

than you would have otherwise.

Nobody got hurt.

Now you can return the favor.


What-what do you mean?

Our physics final is coming up.

You've aced every test
this semester.

So, once you figure out
the answers

just text them to the rest
of the guys.

Yeah, uh...

I-I can't do that.

Accepting help for something
I didn't ask for was one thing,

but people get kicked out
of school

for this kind of stuff.

Hmm. Fine.

Then you're out of Cronus.

Are-are you serious?


And since you know about
our little arrangement,

we're going to have to kill you.

Dude... I'm kidding.

All right,
loosen up.
Yeah, of courseyou are.

It's not that big of a deal.

We'll just get somebody else
to do it.


All right.

It takes a lot of guts to stand
up for your convictions

instead of help out
your friends.

I admire that.

I'll see you at
the Frolic, right?

Yeah, absolutely.

All right,
see ya, bud.
Yeah, see ya.


I can't believe my sister

took over a college Battle of
the Bands to find me clients.

This officially makes me the
worst music producer in history.

No, it doesn't.

New artists are discovered
this way all the time.

They found Justin Bieber
on the Internet.

Do you know how many
dancing babies

and weirdly talented cats
you got to go through

just to find something
like that?

This is going to be easy.

As my talent coordinator,

you get V.I.P. access
to all the bands.

With any luck, you'll find
someone you'll want to sign,

your music label will be
back in business,

and you can finally stop

Start listening to demos.

Annie, hi.
Have you seen Liam?

I need to talk to him about
renting the Offshore

to start a restaurant.

This has something
to do with Mark, doesn't it?

Our brother who sells food
out of a truck? No.


Okay, look, I realize
that my little stunt yesterday

so I'm turning to plan B.

If Mark doesn't have time for me
in his private life,

I will buy a restaurant
and be a part

of his professional one.

Well, in case you've forgotten,
I already have a brother.

And Dixon's already under
a huge amount of pressure

after losing Ade from his
record label, okay?

Last time a half-brother showed
up, he completely flipped out.

He doesn't need this right now,
and neither do I.

Uh-huh, what about Mark?

You saw how cute
and middle-class he was.

He needs me in his life.

Okay, you can't just take
over people's lives

and fix them, Naomi.
It doesn't work.

Hey, Annie, thanks
for hooking this up.

Some of these bands are actually
pretty decent.

If you forcing me to do
this contest

brings me back into this

I officially owe all of my
success to my beautiful sister.



(laughs quietly)

Hi, kettle, I'm pot.

Nice to meet you.


Okay, how does this sound?

Your Honor, I know that I have
made some mistakes,

and every since the incident,

my career has a taken a huge

but throwing the book
at me would be cruel

and unusual punishment.

You flashed a group of people,
you didn't rob a bank.

They'll probably just give
you a warning.

That'd be great.

That way I could put this huge
mess behind me.

I can't wait to put this
behind me either.

Sooner they put Ashley away,

the sooner
I can start pretending

this whole kidnapping thing
never happened.

Liam Court.

Yeah. That's me.

Wish me luck.


Liam, thank God you're here.

Everyone is so confused.

They don't understand
I was trying to protect you.

You have to tell them
the truth.

Liam! Liam!

Are you okay?

Yeah, just got to get
some water.

(breathing heavily)

Are you sure you're okay?



Hey, get off of her.

Hey, why are you grabbing me,
she's the one who...

Come on.

How's Ade?

Shaken but fine.

She's worried about you.

The court said
they wouldn't release me

until I saw a medical

Maybe they're right.

Maybe I do need help.

Adrianna told me
what's going on with you.

The kidnapping,
your friend's shooting.

Liam, have you been having
trouble sleeping?

Mood swings, anxiety?

No more than anyone else

who almost got shipped to
Mexico in a box.

Liam, I think you are suffering

from post-traumatic
stress disorder.

PTSD? It's not like
I went to war.

Combat isn't the only cause,
but treatment's pretty standard.

behavior therapy.

You need to confront the things
that remind you of your trauma

and deal with what happened
instead of hiding from it.

So, you're saying I need to do
more of what I did today,

'Cause that worked out great.

Confronting your past

is the only way
to start feeling better.

Don't take this the wrong way,
but that sounds crazy.


Are we done here?

Hello. Welcome to C.U.'s
First Annual

Food Truck Competition.

Wait, you work here?

If by work here you mean,
created the entire contest,

then yes.

What are you doing?

I already wasted
half my day yesterday

with your fake catering job.

I think I'll pass on the
pretend food contest.

Oh, so I guess it doesn't matter
that Wolfgang Puck is judging?

The Wolfgang Puck?

Such a charming man.

I mean, he single-handedly
changed the face

of American cuisine.

The guy's amazing.

He started with nothing
and created an empire.

You could do the same thing
if you win the contest.

First prize is a write-up
from Wolfgang,

plus a silent partner will
help you open up

your own restaurant at this
amazing waterfront location.

But if you prefer selling tacos

to tourists at the tar pits,
then by all means, fly free.

Okay, fine, I'll
do the contest.

But just so we're clear,

I'm doing this to help
my business.

Don't think it
means we're taking

family vacations together.


Oh, hey. Hi.

Look, I just wanted to apologize
again for yesterday.

It's fine.

You didn't
realize it was me.

So, did you talk to that

Yeah. But she's clueless.

She keeps trying to talk me
into some kind

of stupid treatment.

But, Liam,
if you don't get help,

how do you know this isn't
going to happen again?

Okay, let's-let's make a deal.

Once you fix your own life,

then you can tell me
how to run mine.

Didn't I meet you at
a bar somewhere?

I didn't know you were
going to be here.

Where's Silver?

Not here.

I needed a break,
so I got away.

And since there's not a baby
supply store within sight,

I think
we're safe.

You feel like hanging out?

Sure, yeah.

Who's to say we didn't, uh,
just bump into each other?

And decided to catch
a little music.


So, I'm going to get some food

that doesn't contain
any healthy fiber.

I'll see you in five.


So... looks like
you totally hooked up

with that girl from the
bar the other night
and didn't tell us.

Ah, she's-she's a nice girl.

I didn't want to make
a big deal. Mm-hmm.

And if her boss found out it
could cause a lot of problems.

Hey, so can you do me a favor,

and just keep this between us?

You want me to lie to the
guys about what I just saw?

I'm starting to see some cracks
in that moral code of yours.

But, hey, your
secret's safe with me.

I mean, that's what Cronus
is all about, right?

Friends helping each other out.

All right, I got to go man,
I'll see ya.

See ya.

Man, this is probably
the best taco

I've ever had in my life.

And I'm not just saying
that because

I've been working
since 8: 00.

This event's actually turning
into huge business for me.

Yeah, well, hopefully
for me, too.

Running this contest
was my sister's idea,

and it's actually turning out
to be a pretty good one.

You know what?

I kind of got dragged into this
the same way.

But I'm having a blast.

I-I-I'm Mark. Dixon.

Good to meet you, man.

Uh, what are you doing here?

I'm getting a taco.

Mark, this is my sister, Annie.

Wait, she's your sister?

And Dixon is my one
and only brother.

If you know what I mean?

I don't.

Look, I'm just here
to win Naomi's

food truck contest.

Wait, this whole contest
was Naomi's idea?

Yeah, I didn't realize
throwing contests

for your relatives
was a family tradition.

So, you guys know each other

and you know Naomi?

We shouldn't hold the line up.

Uh, we would love to
stick around and chat

but Dixon and I have a
lot to do right now

and I'm sure you do, too.

It was nice
meeting you. Bye.

Excuse me.

Aren't you Adrianna Tate-Duncan?


My band is supposed to be on
stage in five minutes,

and we lost our lead singer.

Now I know this is going to
sound crazy,

but is there any chance you'd
consider performing with us?

You want me to sing?

Yeah, we're huge fans,
lyrics are super easy,

and you would totally be
saving our ass.

You know what, sure, why not?

The guys are gonna flip.

Come on.

Wolfgang, thanks
again for coming.

You have turned our
little contest

into an enormous success.

I love helping young chefs get
the recognition they deserve.

How are you finding the food?

Anyone in particular standing
out in your mind?

As a matter of fact,

the taco truck over
there is fantastic.

You know,
I'm completely impartial,

but they're my favorite, too.

Right now, he's in first place
with this crepe truck over here.

Oh, tied?

Yeah, maybe I have to go for
another tasting.

That's an excellent idea.

But first, do you want to go
cleanse your palate

over at the beer garden?

You can tell them
Naomi sent you.


Mmm. Peppers.

Careful, these jalapeños
are painfully spicy.

Everyone is loving your tacos,

but... the contest
isn't over yet.

So, if you have any tricks up
your sleeve,

you might want to whip
them out now.

What kind of tricks?

Oh, I don't, a secret
sauce or something.

This is pretty much what I do.

Well, you don't want

anything getting in the way

of opening up your restaurant.

Besides, if you're
anything like me,

you want to crush
the competition.

Well, then, I guess
I'm not anything like you.

I got to get back to work.

(singing softly)

Hey, Ade.

Look, I really need your help.

Um, I'm kind of trying
to learn this song.

Can it wait? This is,
like, an emergency, all right?

Michaela, she bailed
on yoga class.

Now I can't find her anywhere.

Oh, my God, seriously?

What? This is important.
Yeah, like,

way more important than anything

going on in my life right now.

Like the fact that
I'm about to get on stage

with a band that I just met
five minutes ago.

Or how about yesterday,
when I was in court with Liam

and he tried to strangle me?


Liam tried to strangle you?

(scoffs) You know what?

Don't even worry about it.

It doesn't affect your life,

so it's not important, right?

Now, if you'll excuse me,

I have to go try
and save my career.

♪ ♪

Well, that band
was pretty interesting.

Yeah. Uh, not
as interesting

as what just happened
at the food truck.

Dixon, nothing was going on.

I just needed
to get you back here.

I mean, I didn't put on
this whole contest

so you could stand around

chatting with some taco guy.

Well, he seemed like he was

more than just some taco guy.

He wasn't.

Annie, come on.

We're grown, okay?

You can tell me the truth.

What, did you sleep
with him or something?

Ew, Dixon. No.

Okay, fine. If
you won't tell me,

then I know Naomi will.


Okay, look.

He is not just the taco guy.

He's our half-brother.

He's our what?

Naomi tracked him down.

She insists that she needs
family in her life,

but I told her I didn't want

any part of it.
And you weren't
gonna tell me?

I was trying to protect you.

The last time I saw you
this stressed out,

you ended up in rehab,

okay? So...

I don't care what Naomi
needs in her life,

because I need you in mine.

You're my brother, not him.

I admit things aren't
great for me right now,

but there's nothing
that's gonna put me

back on drugs.

How can you be so sure of that?

Because I have a
12-step program.

Because I have you.

A crazy-ass sister
who's always

gonna be there for me.

So, I totally understand

why Naomi would need something

like that in her life.

I just worry
about you, you know?

I know, I know.

But, uh, like it or not,

I'm not your only
brother anymore.


(shrieks): We won!

You won.All you.

Congratulations, Mark.

Your tacos were some of the best
I have ever tasted.

You have no idea
what that means to me.

Honestly, when I saw
the crepe truck,

I didn't think I could win.

That guy does some great work.

I thought so, too.

But after my second tasting,

then he put something crazy
in his batter.

It tasted like jalapenos.

I'm sorry, did you
say "jalapenos"?

Mark, you might want to

pose for the cameras here.



(speaking German)

Uh, Mark?

Where are you going?

You can't just walk away

from Wolfgang Puck.

You sabotaged
another chef's food

so I'd win some contest?

What kind of person does that?

I needed you to win.

I wasn't going
to open a restaurant

with Mr. Flirty Crepe Maker.

The silent partner

with the amazing
waterfront space is you?


You're insane.

So, what, y-you bail on yoga

so you can come and party?

I just needed a
break. All right?

I mean, I thought
about telling you,

but I didn't want
you wigging out.

I'm not pregnant yet.

I think it's cool
if I have a beer.

Come on...

let the girl
have a drink, you know?

Maybe Navid'll get lucky again.

Okay, what the hell
is this guy talking about?

He's drunk, just ignore him.

Are you seriously
telling me, man,

that you didn't
bag this chick

At that bar last weekend?

Because the official Cronus
position, uh, is that you did.

You know what, buddy? I think

it's time for you to shut up.

Wait. Did you guys hook up?

Silver, it's not what you think.
Oh, my God, screw this.

I don't care if Shane
and the rest of my family

think I'm like
the Whore of Babylon.

Navid and I hooked up.

All right?
And who knows,

maybe we'll do it again.

Hey, dude.

What's your problem, man?

My problem is everyone asking me

what my problem is.

(crowd gasps)

Liam, what are you doing?

I got to get some air.

(grunts) Hey!


You have to give me
a chance to fix this.

Being adopted doesn't
make me an orphan.

And it doesn't make you
my Daddy Warbucks.

I was fine before you
came into my life.

Yes, well,
maybe I wasn't, okay?

In case you haven't noticed,

my life is kind of
a mess right now.

I-I just...
I really need my brother.

I'm not your brother.

And I don't even know you.


(tires squeal)

(Naomi screams, Mark grunts)

Liam, wait, where we going, man?

(screams in distance)


Hey, that's the guy
that punched me.

His name's Liam Court,

and I want you
to arrest his ass.

Sir, you're gonna need
to come with us.

You got to be kidding me.


I'm sorry.

(Naomi sighs)

Is she gonna be okay?

Hey, guys.

I'm really sorry

this didn't work out.

We were killing it up there.

But who knows?

Maybe we'll still win.

You know, honestly?

We thought you'd put
a little bit

more into your performance.

You know, rip your
top off like you did

at the charity event.

But I thought you liked my singing.
I do.

But I said we were fans
of your work,

which includes showing
a little something extra.

It's kind of what
you're known for.

You're here.

I wasn't sure
where you were going.

Maybe you should put a
tracking device in my car.

(laughs) I'm sorry,

I just can't believe
that you slept with Navid

and didn't tell me.

Well, I can't believe
you think it's okay

to dictate my behavior
for the next nine months.

It's a baby, Silver.

People have them all the time.

Yeah, but this is
my baby, okay?

And since I can't
carry it myself,

I'm paying you
to be responsible

and take it seriously.

All right, look.

I know this is weird for you,

because it's really weird
for me, too.

I had a vision

for how my pregnancy would go,

and it most definitely
did not involve a surrogate.

So, everything that I was

planning on doing
for my baby, I...

I have to do through you.

Does that make sense?

Yeah, it does.

But you spend so much time

obsessing over this baby

that you don't have time
for anything else.

Not a relationship, not school,

not even your friends.

I just want everything
to be perfect.

And is it?

Take it from me.

From somebody whose family

is completely over-involved
and controlling.

It's not healthy.

Not for you, and certainly not

for the baby.

Hey, Josh.

Hey, Campbell, uh,

do-do you have a second?

Man, I'm sorry Simon
outed you and that girl

to all your friends.

Kid's got a big mouth.

But Liam really
laid him out, huh?

Hope he doesn't
get into a ton of trouble.

Yeah, well, I guess it
all depends on Simon.

He's a... he's a Cronus guy,


Is there any way

that you could talk to him

and convince him to let
the whole thing go?

Wait a second,
you're seriously asking me

to bend the rules for you again?

Because I thought you had

a whole thing about that.

Well, no, this is different.

Okay, uh, Liam's a
good friend of mine,

and, uh, he could
really use my help.

No, I get it, I really do.

It just... it seems
a little unfair

if you're not willing
to return the favor,

you know?

The offer's still on the table.

See you at the physics final
tomorrow, all right?

All right, buddy.


I wanted to come
and check on you.


Dixon found out about Mark,

and he was okay with it.

Turns out I don't need
to worry about him

as much as I thought.

Are you gonna be okay?

I managed to

screw up every
meaningful relationship

I've ever had in my life, but...

My, uh, husband, my sister,
my parents, everybody.


It's okay.

I just wanted someone
to share a bond with me

that we couldn't
walk away from, you know?

Something like you have
with Dixon.

No matter what happens,

you always have each other.

You're his something.

And that's, uh...

something I may never have.

You don't know that.

Since I don't have any more
half-siblings out there, I...

Well, I figure,

Mark was my last shot.

That is one
messed-up food truck.

Look, if Naomi sent you to make
some kind of sales pitch,

you can save your breath.

I don't want anything to do
with her or your crazy family.

I totally get that.

When I found out about
you, I felt the same way.

I kind of got the feeling
you didn't like me.

Yeah, well, family can be
a huge pain in the ass.

I recently figured that out.

So I'm guessing you don't
have any brothers or sisters?

My parents adopted me because
they couldn't have kids.

I gave them so much trouble,
they didn't want more.

My family adopted Dixon
when we were eight.

And even though
it hasn't always been easy,

it's really nice knowing
there's someone there

who loves you and has your back.

But maybe you have enough

people in your life
like that already,

in which case, congratulations.

Anyway, Naomi wanted me to
swing by and give you this.

She wants to take the
truck off your hands

so you can buy a new one.

She didn't have to do that.

You're right.

She didn't.



Hey, is, uh...
is everything okay?

Yeah, it will be.

That kid that I hit yesterday
decided not to press charges,

so I'm off the hook.

No way. Hey,
that's-that's fantastic.

Yeah. I could have really hurt
that guy, though... or Ade.

I realized that I just
can't keep pretending

like nothing's wrong.

Yeah. So, uh,
what are you gonna do?

Well, according to
my court-appointed therapist,

the first step is confronting
what happened to me,

so... that's what I'm doing.

You're not going to kill someone
with a screwdriver, are you?


(chuckles quietly)

Oh, uh, by the way,
I ran into Campbell.

He wanted me to give you these.

Lakers tickets, court side.

He said, uh, some of the guys
were going out to celebrate

a physics test they aced?



I got your text.

What's wrong? Michaela ran out
of flaxseed oil?


Okay, I totally deserve that.

Look, I've been
a terrible friend lately.


I've been self-centered,

and I've been totally obsessed
with this baby thing.

I'm sorry. I miss you.

I've really missed you, too.

I'm not saying I won't still
occasionally check in

on Michaela,
or go a little baby-crazy,

but I'm gonna try to have
a normal life again.

You know, like,
turn over a new leaf.

I'm turning over
a new leaf, too.

That wardrobe malfunction
is going to follow me around

as long as I'm in the spotlight.

So I've decided to take some
time off from my singing career.

That might be the best news
I've ever heard, because

I talked Naomi into letting
me have her brother's old

food truck.

What are you going to do,
sell burritos, or...?

No, 'cause the kitchen's shot.

But I figured...

we can come up
with something creative.

We could do something awesome.

If you want to be my partner.

Oh, my God!

These are adorable!
I love them!

Yeah. Yeah.
Yeah. Yes. Yes!

(laughs) Gonna be awesome!




(doorbell rings)
Ow. Oh.

Come in!

(footsteps approaching)

Annie didn't give you my check?

She did. I'm gonna
make this short.

I've always felt like I
had a pretty full life,

and then you swooped in
and... obviously need me.

(sighs) I'm not a charity case.

I can order in.

Oh, and waste such a
beautiful kitchen?

Losing my truck
gives me an excuse

to do something I've wanted
to do for a long time.

And even without your
jalapenos, I'm pretty sure

I would have kicked that
fake Frenchie's butt.

So... you still interested

in opening that restaurant?

Are you serious?

A few rules. You leave
the cooking to me,

and no more surprises. Deal?

Deal. I'm a horrible cook.

I'll drop by tomorrow.

You can show me this
amazing waterfront place.


I'll see you later... sis.

(footsteps retreating)

I'm sorry. I didn't know
you were here.

No, no, no, don't-don't...
don't apologize.

That was... that was actually
pretty great.

Too bad I didn't find

anyone like you
at that contest yesterday.

What do you mean?
I own

a music label, and I was there
looking for new talent.

Um, someone I could turn
into a star.

It was a complete wash, but you
know, it's okay. I'll be fine.

I'm sorry,
can we go back to the part

about you owning a music label?

Are you saying
you could make me a star?

I have to say, I'm happy

someone finally decided
to rent this space.

It's been empty
for a long time.

So, what are you going
to do with it?

I don't know.

Uh, I decided it was time

to start looking
towards the future,

and this seemed like the
right place to start.

Well, good luck.

Thank you.

You'll be traveling in this.

You're gonna put me in a box?

Just long enough to ship you
to Southern Mexico.

You're insane.

I'm not insane.
I'm doing this for you.
