Ginny & Georgia (2021–…): Season 1, Episode 5 - Boo, Bitch - full transcript

Good morning.


You're up early.

The house looks great.

Yeah. Thanks. I'm late this year.

Bradley Street always wins
"Most Nightmarish Street" at Fall Fest.


You should really get on it
before they come for you with pitchforks.

Georgia, you're a Wellsbury mom now.


Of course.

Yeah, I'm gonna decorate.


These neighbors can be vicious.


My mom is
a total horror movie buff.

From classics to camp, she loves them all.

Fear… it hits you
right in the solar plexus.



To really stimulate fear
is an art form.

You need tension,



Hello, is anyone there?


- What's your favorite scary movie?
- You scared the shit out of me!

I think I finally cracked
the perfect Halloween movie marathon.

Scream, Black Swan, and The Shining.

The Shining is classic. Scream is camp.
White people do the darndest things.

Cap it off with Black Swan.

It's contemplative, nuanced,
eerily disturbing, and it has a message.

I'm not sure what it is. Something to do
with the two women mirroring each other.

The constant need
for perfection and adoration.

Wow. Am I, like, a genius?
Was that an off-the-cuff thesis or what?

Hey, everything OK?

Everything's fine, peach.

Georgia loves scary movies
because it's fear in a formula.

She loves dissecting it.

There are rules in scary movies.

You can always tell who's gonna bite it
and who's gonna survive to the sequel.

Can I watch with you this year?

- Yeah.
- No!

He's fine. It's just a scary movie.

- He's going to have nightmares.
- No, he won't.

See? No, he won't.

You do know opening other people's mail
is a federal offense?

Arrest me.

You picked out some of my faves though.

I'm glad you're decorating.

- Where'd you get all those?
- Blue Farm.

Just buy the sugar, Mom.

What's that? The lights have been
doing that all morning.

Mom, is the house haunted?


Mom? Is it...


Then again,

maybe my mom just loves scary movies
because she's a psychopath.

It's not haunted.

Mom just needs
to call an electrician and a shrink.

Just think of it
as part of the spooky ambiance.

Grab the hot sauce.

We can afford an electrician, right?

This isn't gonna be like Maryland,
where we used flashlights for a month?

That was fun.

Flashlight tag!

Oh yeah. Poverty's a hoot.

- Nervous about your big date tonight?
- What? No.


Projecting? You're the one who's nervous
to meet your boyfriend's parents tonight.

I'm not nervous.

- It'd be normal if you were.
- Well, I'm not.

I remember meeting Zion's parents.
I was shitting myself.

- Gram and Pop aren't even scary.
- I was 15 and pregnant.

Maxine sent me a link.

- ♪I can barely breathe… ♪
- Wow.

♪ When you are near ♪

♪ And I'm really, really, really scared… ♪

Oh, wowie, wow, wow!

♪ When you are near… ♪

So, you're Internet famous now?

I'm living with Logan Paul.

Eww! Logan Paul?

He's the only one I know.

So that's kinda cool. You're immortalized.

It's no big deal.

All right, Hollywood, just be careful.

Fame means people are watching.

I love scary movies too.

My mom's right. There's a formula.

When you're moved around your whole life,

you like your monsters
to follow the rules.

I'll take Freddy Krueger over having
no one to sit with at lunch any day.

Real life is always more scary.

You are insane!

Oh God.

Oh man. Halloween is my favorite holiday
other than my birthday.

Unless your name is Jesus,
your birthday doesn't count as a holiday.

That's the meanest thing
you've ever said to me.

Hmm. Hey, every year,
my mom and I have this tradition

where we do a scary movie marathon
and gorge on candy. Wanna join?

Eww. No.

Girl, Halloween is,
like, the sexiest holiday.

We can't stay in
and watch movies like losers.

Hi, Ginny.

Uh… hi.

Cute shirt, Ginny.

Oh, thanks.

You're, like, legit famous.

No, I'm not.

I am?

Yeah. You're, like,
the most famous person here now.

Even Riley's YouTube channel
doesn't get that many views.

Frickin' Riley.

Ginny, your song.

Like, follow, subscribe.

I stan.

Ginny, I have been
singing your song all day.

I know. It's stuck in my head.

It's getting super annoying.
No offense, Ginny.

- People are talking about you.
- Wait. Really?

Ooh! Buzz. Tell them she's unhinged.

Let's give her a hot mess reputation
like Bella Thorne.

Please don't. What are they saying?

Oh, just that it's super cool
that Hunter wrote a song about you,

and that they think you're really pretty.

- They think I'm pretty?
- Can we talk about Halloween?

'Kay, Brodie is throwing
a Boos and Booze party.

God, I wish I could spend Halloween
with Sophie.

- Why can't you?
- She's a senior.

Do you know what you're doing
for your costumes?

No, and it's giving me anxiety.

OK, maybe we could
all do something as a group?

Like Avengers.

- Ooh, Avengers could be cool.
- ScarJo is hot.

Ginny, what do you think?

Avengers are basic.

- Yeah, totally.
- ScarJo's the only cool one.

Well, we don't have to do that.

I'm going to class. Love you. Mean it.

Hate you. Kidding.

So, tonight, first date,
tell me everything. What are you wearing?

My period-stained granny panties.


- Why?
- I owe it to my kids to take it slow.

Oh my God.

You really like him!


I don't. I barely know him.

You like him. I can see it on your face.

You like him.

I don't normally like guys.

It's actually, like, really rare for me.

Since Kenny.


Ugh! Yeah.

Since Kenny.

Well, all the more reason to plow Paul

so you can
tell your good friend Ellen all about it,

and I can live vicariously through you.

Oh, don't do that.
You and Clint are so happy.

- Don't pretend to be jealous of me.
- Clint is full of surprises.

Last week, he did a striptease.


He did it because he knows
how much I loved Magic Mike in Vegas.

It is the best show I have ever seen,

including the original Broadway cast
of Hamilton.

I did not give Clint enough credit.

Speaking of dressing up,
what's your costume?

For what?

Is that a joke?

For Fall Fest.

I have to decorate my house
and wear a costume?

What's so funny?

You work in the mayor's office and think
you don't have to dress up for Fall Fest?

Well, I…


I've never seen you clueless before.

It's cute.

You know what would be cute?


You bringing us more wine.

That would be really cute.

Like downright adorable.

Thanks, Joe.

Georgia, can I give you
a little 1:00 p.m. chardonnay advice?


People are talking about Casino Night.
Eyes are on you.

Halloween is a chance
for everybody to one-up themselves.

If I were you, I would go big.

- Really?
- Really big.

- Look at this.
- I like that one.

Hey. Uh, Ginny…

Can I, uh, talk to you?

Incoming. Sophie. Seniors.

Uh… Look alive.

Be cool. Be cool. Be cool.

Be cool. Marcus, go!


- What?
- Seniors coming in hot!

- Hey, Max.
- Sophie, hey.

- This is my friend Kate.
- You're Ginny Miller, right?

- Yeah.
- Cool. I like your song.

Uh… thanks. It's whatever.

It's catchy.

"I can barely breathe when you are near."
I died. Dead.

Uh… do you guys have plans for Halloween?

Not really.

Our friend Brodie
is having some people over.

It's gonna be chill.
You guys are welcome to come.

Max, are you gonna be there?

OK. Fun, yeah.
I… Just send me the details.

OK. Yeah. We will.

- See you later.
- Yeah.

Bye, Max.


Oh my God. Oh my God.
Oh my God! What was that?

I honestly have no idea.

Girl, our big dick energy
is off the charts!

My costumes need to be so hot.

- Costumes? Plural?
- I cannot believe that that just happened.

God, are we the coolest people
in the world? Kinda feels like we are.

- ♪ I can barely ♪
- ♪ I can barely ♪

- ♪ I can barely ♪
- ♪ I can barely ♪

♪ I can barely breathe when you are near ♪

♪ And I really, really, really… ♪

You guys are so embarrassing.


God, they're so cute!

Are we still on for dinner tonight?

Be warned, you're gonna get
the full Chen treatment,

complete with my sister
and Taiwanese food.

What should I wear?
Do you want me to bring anything?

Hey, relax.

- They're gonna love you.
- I just wanna be perfect.

You will be.

Hey, I'll be right back. Hey, Bracia.

- Hey.
- Um…

I'm sorry about leadership.

It doesn't matter.
You seem to be fitting in just fine.

No, it's not like that. I was grounded…

for stealing.

It's a long story.

Listen, my friends are having a party,
and I was wondering if you wanted to come.

It's Boos and Booze.

Like boo, and let's get wasted
while in costume.

OK. Yeah.

OK. Good.

- All right, bye.
- OK.

What about Golden Girls?

Ew! No. Varicose veins are not sexy.

Yeah, in the wise words of Randy Jackson,

that's, uh,
that's gonna be a no for me, dawg.

Ooh, what about the Boleyn sisters?

Maybe you're not getting
the theme here, girl.

If I'm not showing my tits on Halloween,
I have done something horribly wrong.

You need to stop with Marcus.

Why? It's fine. Stop worrying.

He hooks up with you,
but won't be your boyfriend? He sucks.

Plus, he's a sophomore.

I don't want him to be my boyfriend.
I like casual.

Now that is some bullshit.
Look, I just want what's best for you.

Caleb, no.

Yeah, I feel like you can't be a mom

and also wear shorts that show your labia.
I feel like that's just bad form.

Mm. Thigh tattoos are vibe.

Ew. That's just trashy.

So trashy.

I'll be right with y'all.

Whereabouts are you from, darling?
I heard a "y'all."

- Uh…
- Spice Girls.

Ooh! Ginny, is it really racist
if you're Scary Spice?

Not happening.

Look. She's got, like,
a medicated Britney vibe going on.

Oh yes.

What? Britney?

- I just want what's best for her.
- We all do, bro.


Let's be Britney.
All of her different looks.

So retro. I love it!

- I call red jumpsuit!
- "Oops!… I Did it Again."

- "Womanizer." The slutty stewardess one.
- Yes!

Love. And I'm definitely red jumpsuit.
Should I text Sam?

Uh… let's just make this a MANG thing.

Savage. I love you as Regina George.

By the way,
your video is up to 12,000 views.

- Thank you.
- Wait. You got an iPhone?

Does this mean you're not gonna ruin
our MANG text thread

with your green goddamn monster anymore?
I mean…

Let me see.


Ugh. That's hateful.

You have haters.

You've made it. That's the dream, bro.

Oh my God.

There's some old, fat dude in Wisconsin
who's probably obsessed with you.

All you need now is a stalker.

I grew up in Brookline,
a couple of towns over.

You have L.L. Bean in your blood.

I went to Brown.

The memoir writes itself.

And I had a ponytail.

- No.
- Yes, I did.

I grew it when I was living in Thailand
for three years, teaching English.

I graduated from Brown,
bought a one-way ticket.

And my father was furious.

- Just go back to the ponytail.
- Absolutely not. Your turn.

Well, I grew up in Alabama

and then a little bit in a lot of places,

and then I had Ginny.

- Is her father still in the picture?
- Zion. Yeah.

- It's complicated.
- Oh, we don't have to...

No, no, no. It's just…

He's my penguin.

He's your penguin?

Oh, everyone has a penguin.

A penguin is a bird.
It has wings, but it just can't fly.

It should be able to.
All the other damn birds fly, but…

everyone has that one person
who, for whatever reason...

- Is their penguin.
- Exactly.

- Got it.
- Hmm.

You know, penguins mate for life.

That part doesn't apply here.

- Joe, I'm here for my takeout.
- Hey.


- Here.
- Thanks.

Only child.


Uh, younger brother.

You his hero?

Yeah. I am.


I'm really glad we're doing this.

Me too.

No, I mean it.

I think you are astounding.

You're smart, and you're strong,

and you're raising two amazing kids
all by yourself.

Well, they never need
to go to the dentist,

so… doing something right.

Yeah. No, I still think
people go to the dentist,

you know, just for checkups.

- How long was the ponytail?
- I mean…

Joe. Cute of you to bring us more bread.


Seriously, about the ponytail,
that's gotta stay between us.


Eat well and drink well.

You speak Mandarin?

Only a little.

I'm good with languages.
I speak Korean, but not so much Mandarin.

Why? Did I say it wrong? I apologize.

No idea.
I don't speak Mandarin.

No, that was just so good.

It was perfect.

- Very nice.
- You speak Korean?

That's dope.

Say something.


I am extremely nervous right now.

Oh man. That's awesome.

Yeah, the only language
that I'm good at is English.

Lauren's an English major at Tufts.

Yeah. Today.

Dad, it is totally normal
to change majors.

Yeah. Yeah. Five times.

I wanted to be sure that I was passionate
about my life's work.

How about when you were so passionate
about criminology

that I wasn't allowed to watch Law & Order
because of the inaccuracies?

So, Ginny,
what'd you think of Hunter's new song?


♪ I can barely breathe when you are near ♪

♪ And I really, really, really like
The earrings on your ear ♪

That was an early draft.

I loved the song.

Yeah. It was really good.
We all couldn't stop dancing, even Dad.

Oh yeah.

- Oh stop.
- Yeah, please.

♪ I can see my face
In your reflection ♪

♪ That is a metaphor
For more than I can imply ♪

♪ It heals my soul
Just to feel our connection ♪

♪ Warms me
Like a quiet afternoon in July ♪

- Stop showing off.
- It's not showing off. Ginny likes it.

This is showing off.

Dinner's ready.

Stop horsing around.

What did Papa Ben always say?

The worst trouble comes…

…from fooling around.


I looked into Seton Academy.

It's the most prestigious preschool
in the county.

Also, I spoke to Pastor Edmond,

and there's an opening on Sunday
for her baptism.

And there's something else.

Your father and I think
it would be wise for us

to have legal guardianship over Virginia.

- What?
- Mom.

This way, your lives don't have to end.

Zion could still go to school,
get a law degree,

if you want hope of a good life.

I don't want a law degree.

Those were the terms
of your gap year.

You'd travel, then go to Georgetown
like your father.

Excuse me?

We're not giving you custody.


It makes the most sense.

We can provide her
with security, opportunity,

set her up with the kind of life
she deserves. You can't.

You're just kids yourself.

Let us take the reins here.

It's what's best for her.

For everyone.


Maybe it makes sense.

Let's say grace.

Dear Lord, thank you
for the many blessings you've given us.

Thank you for our home, our son Zion…

Hunter, how's Abby Littman doing?

She's fine. Why?

Rumor is
her parents are getting divorced.

I had no idea.

- Yeah, I should call John.
- Mm-hmm.

We need to go shopping for something
to wear for Brett Simon's bar mitzvah.

- I know.
- It's next weekend.

- Hunter, you started making your list?
- Mom, I have time.

At the back-to-school night,
they were clear

that sophomores
were supposed to make a list

of their top ten choices of colleges
and start thinking about

who they wanted to write
those recommendation letters.

You don't wanna inundate those teachers
in your junior year.

I bet Ginny's started her list.

Um… list?

Were your parents
at back-to-school night?


It's just my mom.

My dad's a photographer. He travels a lot.
Um, they had me when they were young.

I was an accident. They never married.

They're doing great.
They… They get along well. Well, sort of.

Sometimes they get back together,
but it's just a huge disaster.

Right now, my mom's not speaking to my dad
because he's dating someone. Raquelle.

And she was just widowed.

Not… My mom was widowed, not Raquelle.

Um… My dad died of…

My stepdad…
My stepdad died of a heart attack.

But my mom's doing great. My mom,
she's on a date with the mayor tonight.

I'm sorry. I don't know why
I started talking about that.

It's not that dramatic. It just sounds…

No, my mom was not
at back-to-school night.

Well, they were very clear
that you need to start making a list

and think about recommendation letters.

Fine, Mom. We get it.

What do you want, Georgia Miller?

For my kids to have the best...

No. What do you want?

For you?

I wanna feel secure enough
to be truly free.

I have always been
fighting for what's mine,

running from things, just surviving.

I wanna feel safe enough that I can just…

be free.

Now you.

What do you want?

A second date.

I answered.

All right.

I wanna make an impact.


- I wanna be someone important.
- Damn it.

So much better than mine.

Well? What do you think?

Your house is beyond!

I decorated.

You sure did.

How was last night?
When I got home, you were asleep.

- Tell us everything. Did they love you?
- It was good.


That's all we get? Good?

- That's all we get?
- What about you? Is Paul my new daddy?

I like him.

You think it's a good idea
to date your boss?

I'm being very careful, OK?
We didn't even kiss good night.

You're doing really well
in the mayor's office.

I don't want you to screw it up
over some guy.

- Hey, your outfit.
- What?

Nothing. You look nice.

Georgia, you're a visionary.
And Ginny, a vision.

Let's go. Norah's mom signed us up
for face painting.

Max, you wanna join us later
for movie night?

- We have a costume party.
- You in a costume?

We're going as Britney Spears.
It's gonna be retro.

Oh, OK!

You just called Britney Spears retro,

so I have to go
cryogenically freeze myself now.

Welcome to the 39th Annual
Wellsbury Fall Fest!

These brushes are not giving me
the right blend.

Who are you? Bob Ross?
Just paint the damn tiger stripes.

OK, look at this. I'm an artist.

You are a true, true psychopath.

Thank you.

Hey, guys.

Oh my God. Ginny, cute sweater.

Thanks, Sam.

So, did you decide
on a Halloween costume yet?


But it's a secret
'cause we're doing this whole reveal.

OK. Got it.

I'll see you later.

- Uh, Ginny, how many views are you up to?
- 14,899.

Oh yeah, but who's counting?

Abby! Why are you such an ADD nightmare?

You literally just had blood on your face.

What do you want?

A heart.

Seriously. What do you want?

A heart.

Come on, Marcus. Get up.

So, you're all popular now.

- That why you're ignoring my texts?
- Be quiet.

Not here.

You still have that voice in your head?

Criticizing you? Or did that shut up
now that you're so cool?

- What?
- Ginny knows what I'm talking about.

Marcus, why don't you
just go sniff cold medicine

or whatever your hobbies are?

Nice sweater.

He's right about that.
Your sweater's super cute.

OK, "Most Nightmarish Street…"

So? How do I look?

What are you?

Bradley Street.

I'm the Babadook. Baba dook dook dook.


- It's a thing.
- OK.

Great job.

- "Best Window Decoration."
- Oh boy.

Goes to…

Liz Chavez.

So, I met someone
at Casino Night of all places.

He's hot, tattoos,
like, he'd choke you a bit.


- You look great. Very chokeable.
- Thank you.

Winner of "Best Apple Pie,"

to the surprise of no one,
goes to Cynthia Fuller.

And now a very exciting announcement
from the mayor's office.

We are going to be renovating
the Wellsbury Public Library.


But the library is one
of our most historic buildings.

Exactly. That is why it deserves upkeep.

We'll be adding a third floor.
We are going...

Upkeep? Sounds like your plan is
to depreciate a beloved landmark.

What Wellsbury deserves
is a mayor with a vested interest

in preserving the standards of this town.

I mean, first the drugs, now the library.

Where does it stop?

Green Garden's actually allowed us
to have a surplus that far exceeds...

I saw Mayor Randolph last night on a date.


With his assistant.

My personal life is, quite frankly,
none of your business, Cynthia.

What Wellsbury needs is a mayor who cares.

Who cares about standards.

Who cares about tradition.

Who cares about our children!

- I could not agree more, which is why I...
- I am a mother.

I care.

Wellsbury, you deserve a choice.

This is why I am formally announcing

my candidacy

for mayor of Wellsbury!

Oh, thank you.

Thank you. I love you too.

Thank you.

Thank you.

So, dating Paul…

Should I say "I told you so" now,
or do you want to hear it

after I've rehearsed a little?
Nice costume, by the way.

Very Confederate chic.

This is a disaster.

Take Austin home.

Don't answer the door,
and turn off all the lights, OK?

- But I wanna go trick-or-treating.
- I know. I'm sorry, baby.

Hey, Austin!

- Anything you wanna tell me?
- It was one date.

- Shit. This is bad.
- It's not great.

I need a report
on how much of our current budget

is going to the school system. Thank you.

- Are you mad?
- I'm very mad.

I have to clean up your mess.

Tonight I was gonna workshop
my new drag character, Aqua Marinara,

where I'm a spaghetti
and meatball mermaid. So yes, I'm mad.

I'm sorry.

I forgive you.

But tell me everything right now!

Guess what I am.

Costumes, plural.

Yeah. Having one Halloween costume is like
only having one piece of 'za, you know?

- It's kind of a psycho move.
- Right, yeah. We're the psychos.

Oh yeah.


- You OK?
- Yeah, I'm fine.

- Hey.
- Yeah.

- Do you wanna make out?
- What?

- Do you wanna make out?
- Abigail, seriously?


Oh yeah!

- Bro.
- Dude…

- Bro.
- Way to go, sweetie.

Get in there.

OK. That's it.


No, no, no.
Don't stop on our behalf.


That's my boy!

Go, Brodie!

Thanks. Uh, who are you?

I'm… I'm Britney Spears.

So, that's what you picked?


- I mean...
- It wasn't… It wasn't my idea.

It's a nice costume.

Thank you.

Excuse me.


Hey, Max.

Oh my God.

You look amazing.

Like, you are serving me,
like, under-the-sea vibes.

Slap me with a seashell, girl.

I'm floundering.

OK, I can see
that you have been having fun.

Oh. No, not really

'cause the love of my life's
gonna be here, like, any minute, right?

And I'm just, like,
kinda having a panic attack

and drinking about it, like, profusely.

You know what?
Girl, I've been there. Let's go drink.

Love that dress.


Now we're talking!

Oh, one sec.

It's Ginny.


"This is the whitest black girl
I've ever…"





Hey. Nick put that report on your desk
before he left for his date.

I got it. Thank you.

And I think we should stop.

Stop what?

This thing we're doin'.

You like me.


Yes, but I make you vulnerable.

And you had fun at dinner. Yes?

- Yes.
- I'm the goddamn mayor of Wellsbury.

And I am not gonna let
some uptight real estate agent tell me

I cannot date a woman
that I'm crazy about. Yes?


Well, then frankly, my dear,
I don't give a damn.

Crap, that was a hot thing to say.

What kind of performative act was that?

Oh no. It's no big deal.

OK, well, it's a big deal to me.

Do you even actually like me?


It's a party. So, it's, like, relax.



Maybe I should go.

Wait. No.

That was so cringe. She is so immature.

No, don't worry. You're still cool.

- Okay, come on. We're leaving.
- Oh, gladly. Wanna come with?

Nah. I'm immature too.

I think I really messed things up.

You didn't. It's OK.
Grab your stuff, and let's go?

- I don't know.
- Yeah? Come on. Let's go home.

Let's get off the floor. Come on.

Let's get off the floor.

Let's go. Let's go. Let's go.

Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God.

Oh shit.


I'm home.


You hiding?

Who's there?


Boo, bitch.

Oh no. Do you think I should have said bye
to more people?

- No, definitely not. Come on. Let's...
- I'm so mean. The worst.

- Max.
- I'm gonna lay here until I die.

Oh my God. Come on. Come on.

- Why?
- Let's go to the bed.

- 'Cause you're drunk, that's why.
- No.

Let's go. Let's go.


I believe in ghosts and vampires.

- No, like, they exist among us.
- Yeah.

- They're here.
- Yeah, they are.

There's one over there. Come on.

Max, what the…



Max? What's going on?

- Sorry, Mom.
- My mom.

- No, no.
- I was just trying to...

- I love her.
- OK.

Trying to scare Max.

You got any chips on you?

- Don't scare your sister.
- Yeah.

With maybe a little salsa.

Good night.

OK, what's this?


How much did she have to drink?

- She didn't like me, Marcus.
- Who?


I blew it.

Nah, you'll be fine.

If anyone can bounce back, it's you.

Loser, sleep on your side. Come on.

Thank you.

OK, now…

um… there's a bucket here
just in case you need to be sick, OK?


Come on.

Hey, Marcus,

I'm sorry

about earlier.

You were right. I was avoiding you.

I was being a dick. I…

- I didn't want them to find out about...
- It's OK. It's OK.

It doesn't matter.

No, it was shitty.

I know it wasn't all you.

I sent the photo.

I just…

I don't wanna mess up everything
with Max and everyone.

I get it.

We'll be friends, yeah?



Good buddies?

Oh, Ginny? Yeah, she and I go way back.

Oh, Marcus?

Yeah, we're tight.

You should probably go.

I gotta look after Lindsay Lohan here.



Marky Mark.


I don't feel so…

Oh my… Come on.


- A little joke. A little jokey joke.
- What's wrong with you?

You cared about me.

My little…

- You're the worst. You are the worst.
- You… You're the worst.

The actual worst.

You know what? How about this?

We're on the street in our PJ's,
and that's how we made the news.

Ginny, you're here.


Meet your cousin Caleb
and your aunt Maddie.

Hi, Virginia.

No. Nope.

I'm not doing this.

You said…

You said you didn't have any family.
You said your parents were dead.

- You said it was just the three of us.
- Hm.

Our parents are not dead.

Well, we'll give y'all a minute. Caleb.

What, and I cannot stress this enough,

the absolute...

- I'm sorry. OK, I should have told you.
- You think?

- Why are they here?
- I don't know.

I haven't seen my sister in over a decade.

They'll stay the night,
and we'll figure this out tomorrow.

They're gonna stay here with us?

- I like them.
- Shut up, Austin!

That's not how you talk to your brother.

How am I supposed to talk to my brother?

Do I not speak about him for 15 years
and pretend he doesn't exist?

- Ginny!
- Know what?

I was an idiot 'cause I believed you
when you said this place was different.

It is.

I made friends.

I have a boyfriend. I freaking decorated!

But it's not different, is it?

I don't even know why I'm shocked.

Other moms go to back-to-school night
and help make college lists,

but not my mom.

My mom… My mom dates her boss
and has secret relatives...


You will not be the reason
I don't get to live this life, Georgia.

I will not be trash like you.

It's OK.

Don't be afraid.

I think Georgia loves scary movies

because it's a reason to be scared
that makes sense.

Because the things you really need
to be scared of don't have any rules,

and Georgia knows that.

Keep practicing your cursive, guys.

How are you doing over here?

That looks great.

Good job.

My mom says that your mom
flashes her tatas at the mayor.

No, she doesn't.

She says your family's trash.

I'm scared all the time.

Scared what others think of me.

I'm afraid that if they knew the real me,
my true self,

it would scare them away.

Because the things
you really need to fear

don't go bump in the night.

The things you really need to fear
exist in us already.

We're the monsters.
