Ordinary Joe (2021–…): Season 1, Episode 8 - Reset - full transcript

Music Joe struggles to support Amy through a devastating loss. After Cop Joe and Amy's decision to turn Bobby in, they both face unexpected blowback. Nurse Joe helps someone from his past. Jenny tries to impress her law professor.

Previously, on
"Ordinary Joe"...

Bobby was sleeping
with his intern.

He paid her hush money,
and I have the proof.

Why'd you have a meeting
with Bobby Diaz at his office?

Bobby Diaz was the District
Attorney at the time,

and he helped me make
an Internal Affairs case

against me go away.

Jesus, Frank.
I thought you quit.

You need to ask yourself,
"Is this Amy girl worth

destroying your own uncle
who raised you?"

You need to leave
and that is not a request.

Take the check and go.

Uncle Frank?

Just not feeling so good
right now.

If I could get
a couple of dollars...

I need help, Joe.

How about it? Huh?

For our future congresswoman!


Come here, Amy.
You're okay.

What's going on?

No. Bobby? Bobby!

It's outrageous.

That's what all the newspeople
are saying, and I agree.

Stop splatting milk

You saw the picture.

They shoved a gun
in a 6-year old boy's face,

the government
raided their house

and sent the kid back to Cuba,
but he wanted to stay here.

Mi corazón, don't worry.

That's not
going to happen to you.

I know, but I still have
to go to the protest.

He's from Cárdenas
just like you.

Injustice anywhere is a threat
to justice everywhere.

Dr. King was right
about that, and so are you.

Does that mean I can go
to the protest?

- Of course.
- It's way too dangerous.

Both speaking Spanish...

Maybe I don't have to go.

I thought you were outraged.

I am, but I don't want
you guys to argue.

My Amy.

Listen to me,

the most important thing

you will ever do in your life

is to raise your voice
for what you believe in.

That's all your father and I
were doing right now,

and that's what you need to do
at that protest today.

That's why we're all going,

as a family.

Thanks for benedicting,

Bobby's funeral.

Hey. Well, wait, wait. What?
Why is that your job?

Well, the DC office
reached out to Regina,

but she's focused on the kids.

A congressional ceremony
is different

than a regular funeral,

This unit's the only one

I got the last tenants

You actually remind me of them.

They signed a lease

Dude, we gotta take this.

Excuse me.

- Hey, is everything okay?
- Hey.

Yeah. Listen, um,

do you remember
my Uncle Frank?

After the scene at the

That's great, uh, because

I have to ask you a huge favor.

Season 01 Episode 08

Episode Title: "Reset"
Aired on: November 15, 2021.

- Thank you.
- Listen up, please.

I just found out that
Bobby Diaz will lie in state

at the Capitol Rotunda,
but Bobby's always wanted

to have a funeral here
in his district,

so we need to get
this done by today

before they move
his body to DC.

Regina has a few requests,

but I think
we can handle most of it...

You all have Bobby's plans.

Um, what's going to happen
to Bobby's congressional seat?

The governor traditionally
offers it to the widow.

- Dumb rule.
- It's fine.

- Any other questions?
- Actually, I do.

Have the police
figured out a motive?

Well, they killed
the assassin,

so there's no way of asking,

so we'll probably
never find out.

- Any other questions?
- Not really a question,

just want to let you know
that we're all here for you.

Thank you.

Hey. Is Amy okay?

She just talked
about the shooter

like she was reading numbers
at a board meeting.

She was shot, you know?

Her mentor died.
It's a lot to process.

Arranging a dignitary's

is a weird way to process.

I know. I know.

I'm trying. It...

Navigating grief
isn't exactly...

- Your strong suit.
- Yeah.

What is it that you used
to say when things got bad?

How can I support you?

- Yeah.
- Yeah.


- Hey.
- Hey.

Thanks for doing this.

Look, it's none
of my business,

but it is my business.

Are you sure you want
to help Uncle Frank out?

You know he took a lot
out of you last time.

Okay. Can you shh?


Here you go. Good morning.

This is the third most
comfortable couch

- I ever slept on.
- Yeah.

Uncle Frank, you remember Amy,

Eric's wife?

Listen, do you need to shower
before I take you...

Where am I taking you?

- Dad, I'm awake.
- Hey, bud.

- I got him. I got him.
- Is that my godson?

Yeah. But, can I...

Who wants a piggyback ride?


What happened to you?

Nothing happened.
I have SMA.

this is my Uncle Frank.

I'm his uncle,
but I'm your godfather.

You've gotten so big.

When you were a baby,
I could hold you in one hand.

I've heard about you.

You started the fight
at Mom and Dad's wedding.

After making
a very moving speech.

Ain't that right, Amy?

Yeah. It was...
It was something.

Chris, you're gonna
spend the day

with Uncle Eric and I, okay?

- Dad?
- Hey. Yeah.

Sorry about
the last minute change,

but guess what,

tonight we set
the clocks to fall back,

so tomorrow is our 1-hour
extra bonus party.

- Okay.
- Hey,

I like your constellations.

Did your dad tell you I saw
the moon landing live on TV?

Even made an Apollo 11 cake.

We made an Apollo cake
for my mom's birthday.

Mine was chocolate
with raspberry letters.

Can your cake beat that?

Yeah. Our's had a chocolate
Apollo and the vanilla Soyuz.


Well, that's very impressive.

Very impre...

Hey, you okay, Frank?

Hey. Are you okay?

All right.
You know what?

We'll... we're gonna go this way.
Come here.

Traitor, huh?

that's the thanks I get.

Carved right in to my desk,

and there's cameras everywhere

and apparently
no repercussions, so.

Well, let's unpack that.

Do you think you were disloyal?

I was loyal to the oath

just like my Uncle Frank
taught me to be.

you bring up your uncle.

Did your uncle influence
your decision

to join law enforcement?

He practically marched me
in to the academy at gunpoint.

How do you feel about him
being so forceful?

You know,

he was having
a real rough time

with my dad.


He was having a real rough time
with survivor's guilt,

and, uh,

um, so this was a chance
for me to help him.

What do you mean?

Well, he just really
got it together

after I chose law enforcement,

you know, and, um,
I don't know,

taking me under his wing,

it healed him somehow.

Look, when I arrested
Bobby Diaz,

I was just meeting
the standard

that my Uncle Frank
set for me.

I mean, you teach me
how to do something,

I do it,
and then everyone gets mad.

I wish someone had told me,
"Hey, guess what,

the detective badge
comes with all this BS

because at least
when I was a beat cop

I was free to do
what I wanted to do,

to make decisions
in the moment myself.

It sounds to me like
you need a reset.

What do you mean a reset?

Consider the new day
a new start,

just shake off
what happened yesterday,

and start again today

as if it were
your first day on the job.

It looks like
we're out of time.

Clear to go back
to active duty?

Well, I'm heartened to hear
you discuss

your uncle so openly.

You've come a long way
from bouncing your knee

and stonewalling.

Now, look, let me just say,
you did the right thing, Joe.

Don't let the old boys
get you down.

Same time next week.

Give my clearance autho
to your TO, and then reset.

Thanks, Doc.

Can you do me a favor
and get this posted

and have it sent out
by the end of the day?

- Yeah.
- Thank you.

Hey, seems like
they got it handled.

- Do you want to get some food?
- I can't right now.


how can I support you?

I just need to focus
on writing Bobby's eulogy.

Look, I was gonna save this,
but, um...

maybe they can add
a little sparkle to your day.

You really want to add
sparkle to my day,

I need you to learn the song

that Regina wants you to sing
at the ceremony.


it's the governor.

Governor Hawkins.


I understand.

No, of course.


Thank you.

Everything okay?

Regina just declined
the offer

of honorary succession,

so the governor just
appointed me to Bobby's seat.

I'm a congresswoman.

The word dedicated
is described...

Is defined as
wholly committed...

Describing Congressman Diaz
in one word is...

Hey, you disappeared.

Uh, yeah,
I got a call from the hotel

that we used as base camp
on Halloween, they...

Housekeeping found this.

- They just found it?
- The day after Halloween.

They saw the news,
they realized whose it was.

It wasn't in Bobby's room

it was in yours,

on your bedside table.

Is the seating chart
up to date?

Y-yes. Yeah, almost.

Keep me posted.



Just move the tour dates.

Cancel everything.
Whatever. I don't care.

Kokoro, I need to be
with my wife.

Okay. Thanks, Kokoro.

Hi. Oh, honey.

I'm so sorry.

How is she?

I mean, she was named
congresswoman today, Mom.

You should have
seen her reaction.


She's been through trauma.

But she doesn't need to seem
like she's traumatized.

I mean,
she's handing out binders,

- she's planning Bobby's eulogy.
- Mm.

I mean,
what do I do with that?

Well, busy heals
a lot of ailments.


When your father died, I had
been knitting a scarf for him.

Like, I had this turmeric
colored yarn, it was beautiful

and it was going to set off
his eyes just right.

In the weeks after 9/11

we were waiting for

whether he'd survived,
I just kept knitting.

I couldn't bring myself
to stop,

even after we learned
he was gone.

It was like if I stop
knitting the scarf

and he wasn't coming home
to wear it...

Well, maybe he was never
coming home for real.

So, I kept knitting.

Must have been a long scarf.

It's 9 feet long now.

Anyway, the point is,
knitting to me was rational

and everything Amy's doing
is rational to her, so.


But one day,
she's gonna break

just like I did,

and it took a whole village
to get me through it.

And Amy's gonna need
her village.

- Thanks, Mom.
- Mm-hmm.

Okay, 22 rows.

You're literally leveling up.

I'm going for that
new record.

What's my next move, man?

- I don't know.
- Sixth row on the left.

Okay, well, that would
take down the whole tower.

- Is something wrong?
- Why are dad and Uncle Frank

taking so long?

They're just making
super sure

that Uncle Frank is all right.

Because he was
bleeding internally?

We don't know that.

Or because he has
an addiction?

- Who told you that?
- Nobody had to.

Grandma talks really loud
on the phone.

Everyone knows that drugs
and alcohol are bad for you,

so why does Uncle Frank
keep doing that stuff?

Well, Uncle Frank is a...

You know how too much screen
time isn't good for you?

You get a headache
and you start getting cranky,

but you still do it anyways

because you got to build
your Roblox empire.

Yeah. I guess I do that.

And when you do,
you know how we still love you

and help you feel better?

That's what Dad's doing
for Uncle Frank.

Thanks, Aunt Amy.

I bet you want to play
Roblox now, don't you?

You know me so well.

All right.
I'll help you set it up.

I'm impressed.

I did not know what to say.

Yeah. I figured.

Based off
your deer in headlights punim.


I think I'm pretty good
with kids.

I know that we said
that we were done with IVF

but, you know,
there's other options.

I've been wanting to say

but I... I wasn't sure
if it was too soon or...

Me too, but it's not.

Wait, just so we're on the
same page...

Did we just agree
to adopt a kid?

Just so we're on
the same page.


In discussing the minutia
of evidentiary inadmissibility

of confessions,

one must take in
to consideration the totality

of the circumstances
surrounding that confession.

Excuse me.

It's admirable
that your knowledge base

is apparently so strong

that this lecture
is superfluous to you.

So, why don't you help the rest
of us along by summarizing

the determination
of voluntariness standards.

- I-I'm sorry.
- I didn't mean to...

Why don't you stand so
everyone can hear your summary?

If there is
an unreasonable delay

after taking a suspect
into custody...

No, after they're arraigned...

Which is it?

Because your client
is going to prison.

I'm sorry if I mucked up
the day with your son.

It's fine.

All right, you're allergic
to tetracycline and what else?


That's right. Okay.

And have you
been hospitalized again

in the last five years?

What do you mean, again?

I haven't been
hospitalized at all.

Yes, you have,
four years ago.

You showed up at Aunt
at 7:00 a.m. Meg's plastered

and fell through
the coffee table.

You don't remember that?

You don't remember the
stomach pump or the stitches?



- Isn't this your day off?
- Yeah, supposedly.

Um, Frank,
you remember Jenny's dad?

- Frank from the wedding.
- Yeah.

Hell of a speech.

Hell of a right hook.

Yeah, that bartender
had it coming.

Anyway, um,
he's been coughing up blood,

so we're waiting
on a hepatologist.

I don't need a liver doctor.

Lord all mighty, kid.

Don't you know coughing
comes from your lungs?

- Yeah, I'll tell you what.
- I got a few minutes.

Why don't you let me
take a look at you?


I got cleared
to come back to work.

- Bully for you.
- Yell your new TO.

- What?
- I just found out

I got suspended,
pending an investigation.

- Are you kidding me?
- I told you this is how

guys like Bobby Diaz operate.

You go at him
and then he comes at me.

- You made your choice.
- No.

I chose to be
the kind of detective

you always wanted me to be.

What you did was you rolled
on the mayor's best friend

and you embarrassed the force,

Of course they're gonna
make an example.

Frank. Hey. Frank.

Oh, and tell your mom
we're not coming for dinner.

I can't believe you
don't know my number.

Just call me so that I can
save it, please.

You've written it
on your forearm for

every protest since college.

I can't believe I wasted
my entire morning

buying a phone
because the Feds took mine.

Look, the FEC doesn't play.

Uh, someone from work
just texted,

asking if I'm at lunch
with this Amy?

What is it?

Oh, no.

- What?
- Don't... don't say that.

Do you want to see?

Actually, no. I'm good.


I stand by my husband,

- Shut up.
- I believe this whole thing

is the revenge
of a woman scorned,

my husband's former staffer
and mistress, Amy Kindelán.

Oh, you're trending.

#amyscorned, hashtag...

Okay, that one's
a little inappropriate.

Oh, wow. Bobby's got
some diehard defenders.

I should have kept my
feelings locked in a box.

This is what I get
for doing the right thing.

That is what justice
looks like.

That was amazing.

How many people
do you think there was?

I think it was
a hell of a lot.

Hell of a lot of people
to come together and say,

"This will not stand."

Why is Amy allowed
to say hell?

She's not.

Are we in trouble?

- Of course not.
- We didn't do anything wrong.

Then why are they
stopping us?

This is authoritarian.

- Shh!
- Mom said to raise our voices.

Mi corazón,
what your mother said is true,

but there are times, even when
your feelings are justified,

that you put them in a box
inside you.

This is a box moment.
You understand?

Mind coming with me, sir?

Is there a problem?

Someone set a Wendy's on fire
down the block

and you fit the description.

We're gonna be bringing you in
for questioning.

Officer, I was at the protest
with my family.

Thousands can vouch for me.

- I have my...
- Hands!

- Hands, where I can see them.
- Dad! Daddy!

Up against the car,
right now.

- Oh, no.
- Daddy.

He didn't do anything.

Alcoholic hepatitis.

If you're uncle
doesn't stop drinking,

the outcome could be fatal.

I better wear a crash helmet
when I deliver that news.

Well, the man needs a fresh
start and nothing delivers

that sucker punch
quite like a death sentence.

Listen, if you can get Frank
to commit to sobriety,

I could get him a spot
at Ridge Garden Rehab Center.

I'm on the board,

and I don't want you to worry
about the cost.

I'm happy to foot the bill.

Thank you,
but we cannot accept that.

How long are you gonna
be mad at me

for being a prick to you
10 years ago?

Oh, I didn't realize
you stopped.

Sorry. It's been a...
It's been a long day.

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

It's nice to see you shoot
from the hip for once.

So you don't accept my help

because I tried to buy you
out of Jenny's life, right?

This seems like a trap.

No. No. No, it's not.

I was afraid for my daughter
back then,

but everything you've done
since, everything you're doing,

so that Jenny can achieve
her dream of becoming a lawyer,

it's a...
Just showed me I was wrong.


And, once per decade,

I stop being a prick
for one day

just to see if I can.

Thanks, Doug.

All right. Good.


I wanted to apologize
for earlier.

Well, thank you.

The best apology
is your phone on silent.

Of course.

And I want you to know

that I'm better
than what you saw today.

I'm a working mom,

a long distance
working mom, actually,

and, you know,
it's a lot to juggle,

and I short circuited.

Well, Ms. Banks, you are not
the only working mother

in this program

or in this room.

It looks like you're doing
the best you can,

but perhaps you should focus
on parenting

rather than falling short
and making excuses.

I'm not making excuses.

I'm saying that I can do both.

I can be a mom and a lawyer.

Well, good.

Then by now,
I imagine you can summarize

the determination of
voluntariness standards for me.


Madeleine Albright said
there's a special place in hell

for women
who don't help other women.

Maddy and I both went
to Columbia.

One of us finished first
in her class.




Joe chartered a flight
for us.

- Mom.
- Come here.

Oh, Mom.


Está bien mi corazón.

Está bien.

I don't know why you keep insisting
you were okay. I would have come sooner.

I can do my own dress.

I'm not talking
about the dress.

I'm talking about how I had
to hear it on the news

that you got shot.
You didn't call me.

You started sobbing...

Because every time I stop

I'm back at the shooting.

I can hear it in my head, okay?

And I'm trying really hard
to keep the feelings

that I have about it
inside a little box

so that I can be the person
that everybody needs me to be.

Speaks Spanish...

That thing
your father told you

about putting your feelings
in a box,

we learned the hard way.

When you lock
your feelings inside,

the people who love you
are locked out.

I'm being harassed and
I'm being stalked by reporters.

Someone put my address
out on the internet, Joe,

and my place was vandalized.

Do you have a place
that you can stay?

Yeah. I'll be fine.
I just...


was it even worth all this,

turning Bobby in?


Our relationship is more
about Bobby

than it is about us.

I mean,
if you really think about it,

we barely know each other.

We need a reset.

Consider this new day
a new start.

Yeah, it's something I learned
about in therapy.

Anyway, um...

Hey, I'm Joe.

We went to Syracuse together.

I think we bumped in
to each other at graduation.

What's your name?

- Amy.
- Amy. That's right.

So nice to see you again, Amy.

So what have you been doing
the last 10 years, Joe?

Oh, police officer.

- Mm.
- Mm.

And you?

You know, just getting raided
by the Feds.

- Wow.
- Nothing much.

Well, you'll have to tell me
more about it.

- Mm-hmm.
- Look,

I know this might be
forward because we just met,

but do you want to stay with me
until it's safe to go home?

I'd like that.

- It sounds rough.
- Oh, she was just so surly.

I mean, I should be
acing criminal procedure,

instead I'm getting bullied
by some sentient amicus brief.

I-I don't really know
what that means,

but I do know
that you are Jenny Banks,

Syracuse valedictorian,

head of the PTA
four years in a row

despite Liam's dad's
attempt at a coup.

Oh, he really did try.

Yeah, and you
destroyed him, okay?

And that's the Jenny
I fell in love with

and she would never let
some surly professor

who doesn't even
respect Madeleine Albright

walk all over her.

You know what?

This pep talk is working.

I am going to double down
on studying.

Instead of sleeping in

I'm gonna use that extra hour
to study,

and I am gonna be
the best damn long distance

working mom to ever walk
the halls of this place.


What's going on with you?


Frank stopped by.

- What?
- Don't worry,

Chris is with Eric and Amy

and there won't be
any drunk dancing

or piggyback rides, I promise.

- Thanks.
- Yeah, of course.

And get this,

your dad said that
he would send Frank to rehab

if he's willing
to get serious about it.

I'm assuming
you turned him down.

Actually, I'm leaning
towards accepting.

A truce?

Have the planets aligned?

Well, nothing sucker punches
you in to a fresh start

like an apology
ten years overdue.

An apology and an offer,

you sure it was my dad?

I think so.

Now I just got
to convince Frank.

All right, honestly,

this could get bad.

You're looking at
fatal liver failure.

Now, the good news
is that it's reversible.

Okay, you quit drinking,
you'll live.

You don't, you'll die.

I vote live.

Remind me what is it
your son's got going on.

It's called spinal
muscular atrophy.

He was diagnosed with it
after you vanished.

Look, please stop evade...

Yeah, but is he...
Is he gonna be okay?

Yeah. He'll be fine.

He had spinal fusion surgery
last year,

that's the big hurdle.

- Maybe I should visit more.
- No.

Not if you don't quit drinking.

Look, I can help you.

I will help you.
I will take you to rehab.

Oh, my God.

As someone who loves you,
it is so...

Ah, shut the hell up, Joe.

You don't know what
you're talking about.

Oh, I don't know
what I'm talking about?

Look around the room.

Haven't you noticed
that I'm the only one here?

I hadn't called the family
because Mom, Aunt Meg, Sarah,

none of them would have come.

So on my day off,

instead of spending it
with my son,

I have to help you.

I already buried my dad,

and I will not...

I will not bury you
next to him.

Well, the wrong man
died that day.

I wasn't supposed to spend 9/11
at a football game.

I was supposed to be on duty,

and my brother was supposed to
be with you.

We promised each other

that we'd help
each other's families

if the worst happened.

And then I failed you,

and I failed him.

You weren't supposed to be
at the game that day,

you're right.
I was.

I chose not to go
and my dad died because of it,

so believe me when I say

that you need to forgive

get a fresh start,

come back when you're sober,

get to know us again,

get to know Christopher,

my Christopher.

You look so much
like my brother.

All day I kept thinking
about the Apollo.

And when I saw your boy,
I just...

It's like I was six years old

and we were watching
the man walk on the moon,

just me and my big brother.

I forgive you, Frank,

but I can't save you.

I really hope that you can.

You deserve a fresh start.

I guess the day we fall back
is as good a time as any.

Uncle Frank.

Oh, sorry.

It's funerals, you know?

I know.

Let's go find our seats.

The day I graduated college
I argued my way in

to a meeting with State
Attorney General Roberto Diaz.

When I got there,

I pulled a list
of policy proposals

to prove to him why he should
hire me,

which he did not.

A month later, I got a call.

He created a role just for me.

On my first day, I asked
why he took that chance.

And he pointed to this.

This watch belonged to Bobby's
grandfather, Francisco.

This was the first thing
that he bought

after coming to the States,

knowing that he achieved
his family's dreams.

Bobby told me,

"Abandoning your dreams is like

"stealing your own future,

and your future is dazzling."

Tonight, at 2:00 a.m.,
we set back our clocks

to mark the end
of Daylight Savings Time,

but this watch will remain
as is

so that in death

Bobby can be as he was alive.

Always ahead of his time.

- It was beautiful.
- Thank you.

It was my honor.

But it did make me wonder,

when exactly did you start
sleeping with my husband?

You did great.

- I-I dislike corn mazes...
- Okay.

Because I got lost in one
when I was a little kid.

Duly noted. No corn.

Um, hmm. Okay.

Dislike, don't hate me,

but I kind of think
that Billy Joel's lame.


It's dad rock.

I mean, when you told me
that you wanted to be

the next Billy Joel
at graduation,

I was like, "Okay, Piano Man,
how old is this guy?"

Wow. Okay.

Well, despite that bombshell,

I am a sucker for a girl
in llama pajamas.


I have one more dislike.

That's cheating.

It's not really a dislike.

It's, um...

I'm nervous

about dating a cop.


- Officer, this is a mistake.
- Gimme this hand.

- This is a mistake.
- You have the wrong person.

What's happening?

Let him go!

No, no, Amy.

Let go of him!

So I have a record
in Florida.

It's been expunged,

but assaulting an officer,

and resisting an arrest.

I got a month of clean-up,

but my dad got two years

for a crime he didn't commit,

and became unemployable,

still can't vote.

While your uncle

is on paid leave

for a crime he admitted to.

See why there's a little
mistrust with our boys in blue?

I understand
why you'd be nervous,

but I'm not that kind of cop

and I never would be.

I know.

I mean, I just...

I would have handled that...
totally differently

and I miss that.

I miss responding
to real people in the moment.

And doing it right.

Not just after the fact.

So is being a detective
a dislike?

I dislike being dismissed

and obstructed
every step of the way

at my first investigation.

I like being beat cop better.

So then why don't you
go in tomorrow

and tell your boss that,
get reassigned?

And get demoted.

Well, not a demotion.

A reset.

A reset?

Well, I never thought

to advocate for myself
in that way.

Well, start advocating
for yourself, buddy,

And you know what?
Change your clock later

so you're not late
to work tomorrow.

Might as well change it now,

that way we get
an extra hour together.

Do not let your heart
be troubled.

You believe in God,

believe also in me.

My Father's house
has many rooms...

Hey, what's up?

Long day.

I'm worried about my friends.

That's 'cause
you're a good one,

and I'm worried about you.

I will come back...

Are you sure?

We got coworkers around.

It's okay with me,
if it's okay with you.

It's okay with me.

I know that, uh,

I came here to play,
not speak,

but I've heard a lot today

about what
a statesman Bobby was.

But I also wanted to say
that he was a great friend.

Especially to my wife, Amy,

which I've always
been grateful for.

do you have a minute?

I suppose you're gonna
keep talking

regardless of my response, so.

I'm sorry.

What happened between us
was a one-time thing.

- Bobby loved you.
- Thank you.

But I think we both know
he did not.

Still, that doesn't give you
license to humiliate me.

Bobby only took that watch off
to shower and have sex,

and he shouldn't
have been doing

either of those things
with you.

Yet, you felt the need
to parade it at his funeral,

an heirloom watch,

that I would have liked
to have given Bobby Jr.,

and you decided
it should go in the ground.

Oh, Regina, I am so sorry.

Don't apologize again.

You've done enough.


It was a beautiful ceremony,

and your husband sang
my wedding song beautifully,

and it must have felt good
to stay busy.

So I've decided
I should stay busy.

I've accepted the governor's
nomination for succession,

I'm taking Bobby's
congressional seat.


Thank you.

My office will be in touch.

I didn't know how to help you

because I have been
so checked out.

I want to start over.

No more secrets
'cause I'm worried.

I'm worried if we don't,

The beginning of the end.


Look, it wasn't
just you today, okay?

I think at some level I was...

Avoiding you.

And if you really mean
no secrets,

then there's something
I need to tell you.


When I thought you were
having an affair with Jenny...

- I can't say sorry enough.
- Joe, I slept with Bobby.
