Ordinary Joe (2021–…): Season 1, Episode 5 - Mask On, Mask Off - full transcript

Previously, on
"Ordinary Joe"...

My name is Amy Kindelan,
and I'm running for Congress.

Why were you at Jenny Banks'
birthday party last night?

Jenny and I are just friends.

You and Jenny Banks
have never been just friends.

That's him. That's our son.

- How many injured?
- Just Congressman Diaz.

Shooter disappeared
into the crowd.

Divorce papers?

And you have 40 days
to respond.

You're gonna finish
your law degree.

Do I work part-time?

That might be hard since
you'll be living in Atlanta.

Wayne Coleman, his sister
interned for Bobby Diaz.

You think that they
had an affair?

What if her death
wasn't an accident?

What if congressmen Diaz
had something to do with it?

First time I made pumpkin
pizza I was 13 years old.

It's when my... yeah,
my mom was coming to town.

- You don't have to say yes.
- You don't have to say no.

The only thing you have to do

is be true to yourself
and what you want.

Will you be there?

She divorced me
a long time ago.

It's you she wants to see.

If she wants to see me
so bad,

why is it the first time
she's visited in two years?

I can tell her you had
Halloween plans with Joe.


She can come over
for dinner.

I just want you here too.

I guess her visits
were memorable

- since they were so infrequent.
- I know.

But that is a trip down
memory lane that I don't need.

So let's go back to you
and Amy, right?

You guys need
a cute couple name.

- Jamy, Jamy. A... Amoe.
- Those names are almost

as tragic
as our relationship, Eric.

Stop catastrophizing

Stop using therapy words
on me, okay?

- I have a therapist now.
- Mm-hmm.

And Dr. Cho would agree
that Amy sleeping

with a married Congressman
who I'm investigating

is a catastrophe.

I know you like to avoid

- the tough conversations but...
- I do not.

Maybe you should get her side
of the story.

I don't wanna see you end
another relationship

- just when things get bumpy.
- I do not do that either.

You broke up with that
software engineer

because she thought
that Billy Joel

was the lead singer
of Green Day.

Which was a red flag
about our age difference.

If you really feel strongly
about Amy,

you won't leave without
an explanation.

That's all that I'm saying.

Okay, I promise.

I like that promise.

Okay, so here's the plan.

I'm going to fly out
to Atlanta on Halloween.

And you and I are gonna drive
down the week after.

Wait, Mom, you're missing

You were all gonna build a Mars
rover costume for me this year.

No, I'm not gonna miss
my little Mars rover.

I'm gonna take a night flight.

I have to start my externship
the next day.

How long's the drive?

- It's long, but it'll be fun.
- You know, road trip, baby.

We're gonna look
out the window,

and I'll let you pick
all the music.

You okay?


you don't have to
say yes to this plan.

Yeah, but just let us know
if you don't wanna move.

If we move,
will we be looking for

two apartments or one?

I'm thinking one.

All right, I'm gonna make
a list of people

I wanna say goodbye to.

Can you open up my Notes app?


Sleep sweet, honey.

All right.

Grandma, Dr. Gramps.

We should, uh... we should
make lists of our own.

I'll get the van serviced,

change the tires,
I'll sublet the apartment.

We need to start looking for
a permanent place in Atlanta.

Oh, I can ask Amy
to help with that.

She said she has some contacts.

Okay, just make sure
she grills them

about wheelchair

because they always say
they are and they aren't.

- I'll add it to my list.
- Yeah.

Along with rescinding
the divorce papers.

- You sure?
- Very sure.

You know, now that we're moving
in together,

why not start tonight?


[soft music, singing]

Did you see his wheelchair?

It was pretty banged up.

And that truck?
How old was that thing?

You know what I saw?

I saw a boy who looks happy.

- Did you know?
- That he was disabled?


If we weren't
on a dark street,

I'd ask her to let me
out right now.

- I...[sighs]
- I shouldn't have asked that.

You shouldn't have
thought it.

Take a left up there.


We've seen him, our son.

So what now?

I don't know.

[mellow music]

[♪ ♪]

You know how proud
I am of you

for going back
to law school, Jen,

but is moving
the whole family necessary?

It's only till next summer,

Actually, we're not sure yet.

If Jenny's externship
leads to a job,

and if I really love
the hospital that I'm at,

we may stay.


We're trying not
to look too far down the road,

you know,
one step at a time.

Well, how can I support you?

made a list of people

that he wants to say
goodbye to... it's long.

If you could pick him up from
school this week

and take him to see
as many people as you can,

- that would be so great.
- Absolutely.

You think you can find
a specialist

that Chris needs in one week?

With your help, maybe?

It's also the middle
of a school year.

Have you considered that?

Chris is all in, Dad.

He told us this morning

that he has never been
so excited.

♪ Gone are the cares... ♪

I don't wanna meet
a whole new group of kids.

They're gonna try to shake
my hand.

They're gonna try and talk to
me like I'm two years old.

So tell your parents
that you don't wanna go.

- No way.
- They're together again.

♪ Wake unto me ♪


Christopher Kimbreau
and Mohamed Riazi,

- you're up next.
- You said you crossed my name

- off the list.
- Our song is a duet.

If you don't sing,
I don't sing.

I can't be in the play.
I told you I'm moving.

- Well, I can.
- Christopher Kimbreau

Pumpkin latte without milk.

I don't understand how people
say that tastes good.

I saw him.

We saw him.

don't wanna record this.

Zeke's school is having a...

Halloween Carnival Fundraiser.

Okay, come on, Joe.
Slow down now.

- Slow down.
- I'm not going.

Amy has a campaign event
that night.

He's in a wheelchair.

I wanna donate a ramp van.

That's not a good idea.

They need one.
We can do it anonymously.

This is about helping a family,
doing some good.

You can't possibly
have a problem with that.

No, I don't have
a problem but...

I know, I need to tell
Amy about him.

I've run the conversation a
million times through my head.

It never ends well.

Okay, try it on me.

What, you're gonna be Amy?


Okay, that's not weird
at all.

- Come on.
- Fine.

Hey, hon, you know
how devastated you were

by the miscarriage

and us being unable
to have kids?

Well, guess what,
Turns out I already have one.

Yeah, you can't say that.

It doesn't matter what I say.

That's what she's gonna hear.

Listen, every day I ask God,
grant me the serenity

to accept the things
I can't change,

the courage to change
the things I can

and wisdom
to know the difference.

You can change this, Joe.

Amy, there's something
I've been putting off

talking to you about,

and I'm sorry that I have to...
To tell you,

but I-I want you
to hear it from me.

We started the vetting process
and we, uh...

we have some concerns
about Joe.

Oh, please.

Look, Joe's rock and roll
without the sex and the drugs.

He always has been.

I-I don't know about the sex
and the drugs,

but I know that he went
out of town after we left.

Did he tell you that?

are you guys following him?

Come on, Amy.
You know how this goes.

They're looking into you
and everyone you're related to.

Their personal conduct,
social media history, finances.

Joe just bought lunch upstate.

I know that's not a big deal,

but he told you
that he was home.

Thank you for coming to
fill out the transfer papers.

Bobby and the team
will be in soon.


Okay, what's with
the cold shoulder?

I hate having to
ask you this but, uh...

I just promised my best friend

that I wouldn't avoid
tough conversations.

- Joe, what's going on?
- You and Bobby.

What did he say?

You know what,
it doesn't matter what he said.

All that matters is the truth

yeah, it's true.

I did have an affair
with Bobby.

- Oh.
- I thought he was gonna

leave his wife
because I was naive, right?

But it's... it's over.
I've ended it.

I'm just... I'm really thankful,

I got to meet you.

Well, now I just feel like
a jerk.

[small laugh]

- I'm sorry.
- No, don't apologize.

I-I want you to be honest
with me.

Okay. There's something

that I've wanted to
tell you about Bobby.

What about Bobby?

The guy who shot him,

he may have had
a real good reason.

No one has a good reason
to shoot anyone.

I mean, I wish cops
would get that.

That's not what I meant.

I just think
you need to watch out.

I'm not sure how much I can say

because it's still
an active investigation,

but he could be dangerous.

Wait, an active
investigation on Bobby?

- Yes.
- Bobby's the victim.

Look, he might be a flawed man
in a bad marriage,

but he has devoted his life
to helping people.

Talk to the Assistant
District Attorney about this.

She'll be able to
explain better.

I am just trying
to protect you.

Look, I'm a grown woman...
I don't need your protection.

I know that... don't mention
anything to Bobby.

Talk to Jenny.

You know, I think I preferred
the cold shoulder.

[somber music]

[indistinct chatter] [knocking]
I gotta call you back.

Can you give us a minute?

Our mutual friend Joe
tells me

you're investigating
Bobby Diaz?

- Have a seat.
- No, I don't want a seat.

I just want answers.

Are you going through
my things?

- Of course not.
- So what's this?

That belonged
to Carrie Coleman.

She was Congressman
Diaz's intern.

We think he was having
an affair with her.

Did you work with her?

No, no she... she worked
in the D.C. office.

Right, we're actually
not interested

in her time in the office.

We're interested in the payoff
she received to leave.

What payoff?
Is there proof?

Not yet.

Do you think Congressman Diaz
is capable of having an affair?

What does that have to do
with anything?

Well, Carrie died less than a
year after she left his office.

Whatever happened to her,
her brother, Wayne,

apparently blamed
Congressman Diaz.

That's why he tried
to shoot him.

Maybe I will take
that seat.

"The minute I heard
my first love story,

I started looking for you
not knowing how blind I was."

Lovers don't finally
meet somewhere.

They're in each other
all along.

I spent a lot of time
staring at that poem.

And the inscription
on the back too.

[door opens]

- Not going to lunch?
- Uh, no.

I have a lot of work to do.

- Come on.
- Hey, come on, Amy.

Can't... can't freeze me out

We're too good together.

You know, I actually
have been thinking about it

- since I ended things.
- I'm happy to hear that.

You know,
I was really wondering,

- were there any others?
- [chuckles]

- I'm... I'm not following.
- Other women.

Was it just me,
or were there others?

Where is this coming from?

Just answer the question.

It's only you.
It's only ever been you.

- Breathe, bring it up.
- Campaign's in full swing now.

I don't know how to run
for office if I can't walk.

You got a long road
ahead of you.

But last week you thought you
were never getting outta here,

and now... that's good...

You're gonna be rid of me

To be so lucky.

Look, about this rehab center...

Any way I can do that at home?

You know, I-I could kinda
use the privacy.

Maybe I could pay you
to come on the side.

Even if I wanted to, I can't.

I'm moving to Atlanta next

Oh, yeah?
What's in Atlanta?

My wife's going
back to law school.

Childhood dream of hers.

Mine is to make her happy.

Today, we can finally
tell you

who committed
this horrible crime.

We have an update
in the case

of Congressman Bobby Diaz's

Wayne Coleman is now in
custody and has confessed.

Coleman says he shot Diaz

because he blames
the Congressman

for the death
of his sister Carrie.

We'll have more on this story
as it develops.

Must be a relief to know
that they caught the guy.

Carrie was my intern.

She was fantastic, smart,
and funny.

I didn't know she was dead.

I'm sorry for your loss.

[uneasy music]


- Hey.
- Hey.

Hey, when... when
you're done with that,

I wanna talk to you about

Yeah, just one second.

I just need to send
this one text

and I'm done.

- You okay?
- I'm so tired.

I don't even know
how to answer that.

You know, I'm so grateful for
this opportunity, I really am...

You're allowed to be grateful
and exhausted.

You know,
it's not even the work.

It's the emotional stuff.

I told the entire world
about our fertility issues.

Now I have these women
coming to me and telling me

how they are inspired by me,
now I give them strength.

Because you do... you've always
given me strength.

I'm an imposter.
I'm just building this wall

to protect this crumbling
person inside.

It's not strength.

You know,
I still feel the twins.

They're supposed to be kicking
right now, but they're not.

And they're gone and I just...

I just feel so empty.

I'm sorry, what did you... what
did you wanna talk about?

Just that I'm here,
whatever you need.

[chime, buzz]

You don't have to deal
with that right now.

Actually, I do.

The Halloween event
might go late,

so we're booking rooms
for everybody at the hotel.

You know, you didn't tell me
what you did

while we were in D.C.

I actually stayed home
and wrote the whole time.


Yeah, I actually started
a new song.

Can we cut the ladies and
gentlemen at the beginning?

A lot of teen voters
are gonna be there

and they're over binary

Maybe just say
esteemed guests instead.

That sounds so really formal.
Maybe just friends.

I like friends.
Do you like friends?

- Friends can work.
- Hey!

I got Halloween cupcakes
in case anyone's hungry.

Anything else I can do to help?

No, I think
we've got it covered.

Thanks for the cupcakes.

- Okay.
- Amy, we're ready.

- Hey.
- Hey.

I know a way you can
help out if you want.

Sure, anything to help Amy.

W-well, my... my babysitter
bailed on me last minute,

but if you were willing
to babysit,

it was really helped me
focus on work today.

- Sure.
- Yeah?

Yeah, I'd love to.
I love kids.


There's something
I need to tell my parents,

and this could be
my only chance.

What is it?

You know you can
tell me anything.

That I'm bisexual.

- Can I ask?
- No, I'm not into you, and no,

this isn't some layover
on my way to being gay.

I know who I am.

- I've known for over a year...
- Okay. Stop confusing me

with the douchebags
we go to school with.

I was just going to ask
how I can support you.

That's really nice.

That's what my mom always
asks me when I'm upset, so...

Can you just make sure
I don't chicken out?

'Cause honestly,
I'm a little scared.

I don't know
your mom very well,

but your dad's
always been there for you.

It's never going to change.

Do you think that's why
we're musicians?

We're both one pair of

like Linda McCartney?

Don't know if that's why
we're musicians or geniuses

but... might be why
we're best friends.

You know, full disclosure...

It would also really help me
in the relationship department.

I got lunch with Sai.

- Sai, huh?
- I mean, I've been wanting

to flirt with him for a while,
but it's, you know,

not easy when you got a crying
baby in your arms, right?

Not... not that Wilde cries.
She's a really easy baby.

You will barely even notice
that she's there.

We're just gonna
go to sleep.

It's okay.
You can go to sleep.

Yeah, we're just gonna
go to sleep now

for Daddy's best friend.

Thank you for coming.

She won't stop crying.
I don't know what to do.

Oh, that's what happens
when you name a baby Wilde.

Very funny, Mom.
Very funny.

Yeah, you're just
bringing it... that's all.

I fed her.
I changed her diaper.

What else is there?

I have an idea.

Celeste was an easy kid.
You, not so much.

You always liked to use
your voice.

Well, then I apologize
on behalf of Baby Joe.

Mom, you always told me

that the most
meaningful part of your life

was raising Celeste and me.

Even when she left,
You said that.

Nothing your sister
ever said or did

would, uh, erase the joy
of raising her.

We don't raise our kids
to belong to us.

We raise them to belong
to themselves.

That's the magic of parenting.

That's what I want.
I want that magic.

Earth to Christopher.
You got the lead.

You're Nathan Detroit.
That's awesome.

Hey, Christopher.
I got Adelaide.

All their scenes are together.

I can't wait to sing with you.

Too bad,
it will never happen.

Can't we ask your parents

to not move
or let you stay with me?

No, tell them nothing.
They're together again.

That's what matters.
This show... it's not a big deal.

It's a ginormous deal
and you know it.

It's a Frank Sinatra role.

- Hey.
- Ah.

The world's
only Grammy-winning babysitter.

- How was she?
- We had a great time.

She has very good taste
in music.

You turned her into a
Billy Joel fan, didn't you?

Wait till she starts babbling
to the tune of "Uptown Girl."

It's gonna be great.
You guys have a nice lunch?

It was a very
cilantro-heavy lunch.

He is... he's very opinionated
about food.

True, but who began the date

by insisting the scented candle
on the table be removed

because it would interfere
with the flavor?

Wait... wait... wait,
this was a date?

I got go show this draft
to Amy.

It sounds like
you guys hit it off.

Yeah, he has nieces
and nephews,

so he's not afraid of kids.
He's an adventurous eater.

And yet he refuses
to use the word foodie.

And he's a gay man who doesn't
believe that bisexual men

are a figment
of their own imagination.

That's covering
a lot of ground.

Hey, yeah, well, we were
talking to avoid eating.

The... the chef
really did overdo the cilantro.

You, um...

you don't think that it is
too soon

for me to date, do you?

- After everything with Adam...
- Let's ask her.

Hey, Wilde, do you think that
your daddy should be lonely

for the rest of his life
because his ex was too dumb

to realize how awesome
fatherhood is?

What's that?
It's a strong no, buddy.

- Okay?
- Okay.

There's another
attack ad out.

Please tell me
it is not another racist...

No, it's from some Super Pac

Patriots Preserving America.

Oh, yeah.
It doesn't sound racist at all.

I mean,
they're painting me out to be

some out of touch
rock star's wife,

using your money to attack me.

- Hey, it's our money.
- I know. Thank you.

But Bobby thinks
the best thing right now

is for you to lay low,
and I agree.

Is it okay if Bobby takes me
to the Halloween event?

I wanna support you.

I know you do,
but if you're there,

they're gonna ask you
about the ad.


Yeah, of course,
I'll just stay home

and binge on candy corn.

- Thank you.
- Yeah.

All right,
say Kindelan for Congress.

Got it. Great.
Here you go, love. Thanks.

Thank you, everyone,
for coming.

Please remember
to register and vote

and tell your friends
to register too.

Seriously, Joe?

Hey, listen, just... just, hold
on, just hear me out, okay?

My night just cleared up,
and it seemed like a sign.

A sign?

That we are meant to go
to Zeke's Halloween Carnival.

Why do you think you can
follow your every whim?

It's not doing anything
we haven't done before, Jen.

Besides, I'm in costume.
No one's gonna recognize me.

You're in a cowboy hat.
You have lost your mind.

I am late for

Do not contact him.
Promise me.

.- Hey, bud... everything okay?

You seem pretty quiet,
even for a ghost.

- I'm fine.
- You sure?

I know we promised you
a Mars rover

and turned you into
a sad ghost instead.

At least I'm not...
Who are you again, Dad?

Patch Adams.
Guys, come on, it's a classic.

Oh, your father
has always had

a very broad definition
of that word.

I guess I was just
looking forward

to being the Mars rover.

It's okay to be sad.

I just wish you weren't
leaving tonight, Mom.

And there's so many people
I wanna say goodbye to,

and I'm realizing
I'll never have the time.

We'll do our best, bud, okay?
I promise.

How sad would I have
to be for you to let me

eat all the Halloween
candy tonight?

Well, you'd have to fight
Patch Adams for it.

- Got it.
- She's quick.

- Are you ready to go home?
- Okay, all right.

- I see how this works.
- Yep.

I see how this works.

Thank you.

So we just got 300
new emails,

registered almost
as many new voters,

and there's a viral
tweet calling you

the Queen of New York's hearts.

You did good.
You did good.

- Get some rest.
- Yes.

All right, I'm gonna walk Amy
back to her hotel.

- Thanks, guys.
- Absolutely.

Hey, Amy,
slow down a little bit.

You okay?

Yeah, I'm just tired.

Well, thanks for being here.

Amy, I really hate
to tell you this,

but Joe withdrew a 100 grand
from your account yesterday.

Do you know what for?
Maybe it's for soundboard or...

Kurt Cobain's guitar.

This was taken today.

Guess he's not at home
bingeing on candy corn.

Her name's Jenny Banks.
She's an attorney.

Yeah, I know who she is.
They dated back in college.

He was with her when
he went out of town upstate.

I-I didn't want to mention
that detail because I just,

I-I was hoping
it would be nothing,

but he went to go
to see her again today.

Did he spend the money
on her?

Is that why he lied to me
about going out of town?

He's never lied to me before.

Is he cheating?

Hey, that's not for me
to say.

[line ringing]

Hey, you've reached Joe.
You know what to do.

Got his voice mail.

I just... I can't.

Hey, I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

You know,
I just always wondered

if he still had feelings
for Jenny after college.

What if there's only one
right person for each of us...

and for him it's her?

There's no such thing
as one right person.

There's only people.

Hey, I'm running late.
Will you lock up?

You know it's okay to say
that you're running late

to see your wife and children.

It'd be nice
to hear the truth sometimes.

Didn't want to hurt
your feelings.

Is that such a bad thing?

I'll lock up.

[suspenseful music]

[♪ ♪]

So the admissions director
tells me our chances are low

because I applied too late.

Our kid isn't even born yet.
It's a preschool.

I'm sure they would
change their position

if you gave them
a hefty donation, 'cause...

Whatever... I hate that place

- I do too.
- Right? Two Black families,

and not a single queer parent
in the entire school.

So just don't tell them
you're queer.

- Uncle Frank.
- What? Oh, I'm sorry, Eric.

Is that one of those words that
only you're allowed to say?

Because times are changing fast
for an old man like me.

No, it... it is not that.

Queer is my preferred word,
but I love you for asking.

I don't see what
the big deal is.

Back when I was in college,
all the girls were bisexual.

Yeah, we all know about
your Vassar days, Meg,

but I really wanna
understand this, Eric.

Why does a preschool need to
know about your private life?

- [knocking on door]
- Blessing relief.

The first trick-or-treater and,
Joe, will you get that, please?

- Yes.
- Thank you.

The thing is, Frank,

I don't want to have
to live in a closet.

I can't hide that I'm a
biracial black man, right?

Why should I hide
that I'm bisexual?

Even in a monogamous marriage
with Mallory,

it's still a part of who I am.

Does that make sense?

Yeah, perfect sense.
Does it mean I'm woke?

No, honey, it doesn't.

- Can we talk?
- Yeah.

I'm sorry Halloween
wasn't a bust, bud.

It'll be better next year,

All: Surprise!

[overlapping chatter]

I'll miss you.

We can still FaceTime
every night.

- Okay, Chris?
- We'll miss you.

- [phone rings]
- Hey, you're late.

The airport?

Hold on.

There's an uprising
they need her to cover,

so she's taken a redeye
to Dubai.

She wants to speak with you.

He can't talk right now.
Have a safe flight.

I know it hurts
that she didn't call,

but we've been through worse.

We're used to making
something out of nothing.

We're used to taking our pain

to the dinner pot
and turn it into joy.

You know why they call it
soul food?

Because it feeds the soul.

You know,
I can skip trick-or-treating.

There's something
I want to tell you.

I'm listening.

Gumbo? Oh, man.

Well, you know, it felt
right, being Halloween.

Smells great.

Thank you.

I still cannot believe
you pulled this off.

Oh, I just turned Chris's
goodbye list into a guest list.

- Called me to cook.
- I did all the staging

and I promise
I will put it all back.

- Who made the costume?
- Hmm, the kids did that

with a little help
from their theater teacher.

Mom, you really outdid
yourself this time.

- Aw.
- I just wish Uncle Frank

could be here.

You need to tell your dad!

[both whispering urgently]

Excuse me.

[indistinct arguing

- Hey, you guys okay?
- Yep, all good.

Really? 'Cause it looks like
you two are fighting,

- and you two never fight.
- You need to tell your dad.

Tell me what, bud?

It's just... I did audition
for the musical,

and I got the lead.

- You're Nathan Detroit?
- Yeah.

And no.

'Cause we're leaving.

But it's not about the play.
There's other plays,

but I don't know if there'll be
any other friends in Atlanta.

And there definitely
won't be other grandparents.

I thought you wanted to go.

I was excited that going

brought you and mom
back together.

I don't want to ruin that.

- Hey.
- Please don't tell Mom.

No, no, no, no, no.

My sweet boy.

I don't have to go.
We can all stay right here.

We can?

But I don't want that either.

- Go.
- What?

You go and we'll stay.

We are a family that
supports each other's dreams.

Dad's right.
You need to do this.

I don't know how to be
away from you.

We will find a way
to stay together

as a family and as a couple.

[indistinct P.A. announcement
in background]


- Sorry.
- My bad.

I promise I wasn't drinking
and driving.

Well, it's probably for
the best since you're nine.

- How'd you know?
- Uh... good guess.

You having a good Halloween?

I'd rather be stuffing
my face with candy corn,

but it's okay.

Hey friends,
there's still plenty of time

to buy raffle tickets,

but we'd like everyone
inside right now.

We're about to announce
something very special.

An anonymous donation
to the Turner family.

Hey, that's us.
See you down the road, partner.

See you down the road,
