Previously, on
The I Word: Generation Q...

Oh, shit!

[Tess] I have got so much
on my plate already.

- [Shane] I can help with that.
- Your help is how this happened.

[Shane] Let me just stay out
of your way then.

- [moaning]
- [Dani] Nat?

Hey, Gigi just called me.

I can't get ready on my own,

and I didn't want you
to be late.

It was nice to meet you.

- [Alice] Yeah, you too.
- [Taylor] And good luck on the show.

You should stay and watch.

Congratulations on the baby.

You're not supposed
to know that.

Look, we're not having a baby.

We're fine.

- We like each other, okay?
- No, we don't.

And to be honest,
I liked whoever

she was fucking
while you were gone.

My name is Samuel Hendrix.

I am your professor.
I am happy you're in my class.

I lost a contestant

for the dating game?
Can you please do it for me?

Contestant three, I choose you.

- [confetti pops]
- [Alice] You're funny.

- For a regular gal.
- Yeah.

[Dani] What is going on
between you two?

- [Gigi] I'm just confused.
- [Dani] I'm done.

You want to come over?


I don't want to push you

into something
that you're not ready for.

I want to have a baby with you.

Hey, Tess?

I'm sorry I snapped
at you earlier.

All is forgiven.

Can we just go home?

Great show.


Uh, same-same to you.

Dani is in a very sensitive
place right now, okay?

- Gotcha.
- She's probably...

Oof, depressed, anti-social,

- all of it. Mm-hmm.
- I get that.

- Hi, hi.
- [Sophie] Hey.

Oh, wow. Look at you.
You look so good.

Oh, thank you.
You know, I feel good.

- What's up, bud?
- What's up?

- Sophie thought you'd be a mess.
- What? No.

I didn't say a mess.

She absolutely
fucking said that.

Not a mess.

I just thought that, you know,
from the breakup...

Uh-huh. I am...

I am totally fine.

I'm more than fine, actually.

Guess who's coming
to town tonight?

If it's Harry Styles,
can you please get us tickets?

- Is it Harry Styles?
- No.

It is way better than that.

- Okay. Doubtful.
- Uh, who is it?

It's Roxy.

- Roxy? What? [Laughs]
- Yeah.

Wait, who's Roxy?
Ooh, chocolate.

- Mm-mm, it's sausage.
- Oh.

- Ooh. Um...
- Sorry. [Chuckles]

Roxy is Dani's bad friend.

[whispering] Ba-da,
ba-da, bad...

- She-she... No.
- Ooh.

- She's not bad.
- Okay, yeah. The last time

she was here, you guys ended up

in an orgy in San Luis Obispo.

Shut the fuck up.

- [Sophie] Mm-hmm.
- That... that was actually

a leather party in the Valley,

- and it was fun.
- [Sophie] Same thing.

I love fun friends. I'm
a lot of people's fun friend,

and I... that's a compliment
from me.

[Dani] She said that
she's gonna meet us here,

but she's, like,
two hours late to everything,

so I'm not gonna
hold my breath. Um,

she is going to be
my wing man tonight.

- Hey.
- Oh, good for you,

getting back on that horse.

- Mess no more.
- Yeah.

Yeah, we are going hard
this Halloween.

- Whoa. Okay. [Chuckles]
- Okay, now I'm scared.

[gasps] Roxy!

- [squeals, laughs]
- D-Bag!


Happy Halloween, bitch.

They're gonna end up in jail.

Well, at least they'll have you
to bail them out.

Aw, babe.

[sustained buzzing]

[snoring softly]

[buzzing stops]

[Alice] Good morning, sunshine.

You are a deep sleeper.

I grew up near a firehouse.

Learned to sleep
through anything.

- For real?
- [laughs] No. I took

a gummy at 2 a.m.
because I woke up and

- I couldn't fall back asleep.
- Well, I slept

great because I was
very tired from you.


You got heels and, like, you

look like Alice, the superstar.

- What, this?
- Yeah.

Oh, no. I dress like this
for you.


Hey, what about tonight?
Should we go to Dana's,

- and, like, dress up?
- Oh, man.

I wouldn't even need a costume

for tonight. I'm, like,

halfway to Walking Dead extra.

Just missing some blood here,
some dirt...

I was thinking
it could be really fun

if we stay here and we do,
like, a scary movie marathon?

I know you haven't left my house
in two days, but...

- Yeah.
- Yeah?

- Yeah, yeah.
- Oh, good.

- Okay, good, good.
- Yeah. Let's keep the zombie

off the streets.
I like the way you think.

Yes, because I have all these

great decorations,

and I thought this could be
kind of fun to, like,

- hang them all.
- Wow. [Laughs]

You're, like,
a Halloween person.

Eh. I'm more like a girl

who steals things
from work, but...

- You're a thief. [Laughs]
- Yes, I'm a thief.

- Good morning. Oh. Okay.
- Morning breath.

Yeah, pumpkin-flavored.

Um, I was gonna make you coffee
'cause I thought,

you know, you're sick
of making... coffee.

- Yeah? Okay, good.
- Okay. Oh, that's really nice.

Thanks. Do you have
any contact solution?


Mama, do you want to dress up
for Halloween?

I found, I think it's Dorothy

from The Wizard of Oz...

- Let me just finish her lip.
- [laughs]

Okay, I see how it is.

Doesn't she look amazing?
Look at this.

You look phenomenal.

- Yeah, there you go.
- Check that out. Huh?


[Tess] I'm so happy to see
that you're still faithful

to Dolly Part on.

Oh, she's my higher power.

- Patty?
- Hmm?

- Ready for breakfast now?
- Yeah, sure am.

- Okay.
- Oh, happy Halloween.

Oh, also, the smoke machine
is gonna be delivered

- at noon to the bar.
- You look good.

- So, I'm gonna go sign for it.
- [Tess] Cool, thanks.

What were you last year, Ma?
I forget.

What? I don't know.

[Tess] Hang on a second,
I'll find a photo.

- [Shane] Here you go.
- [Patty] A photo?

A photo of what?

It's, uh... hold on.

I just got an email
from the contractor.

[Patty] F... Wh...
What are you talking about?

Are you good with n/naka
tonight for dinner?

[Patty] Uh, how am I
supposed to eat this?

Do you need a...
Could you get her a spoon?

- Oh, Patty, I'm sorry.
- Yeah, of course.

I don't have a spoon.

- [Shane] So?
- [silverware clinking]

Are you...

Are you good with n/naka?
There you go.

Uh, yeah. God, Gloria is
gonna be here at four,

and then, yes.


Oh, she's gonna get cold
in that. Can I grab this?

- Hey. Hey.
- What?

Here, Mama. Let's get this on.

- [Patty] What? For me?
- [Tess] Yeah.

[Patty] But that's not
part of my costume.

[Tess] Well, you'll just
wear it for now, okay?

- How's that?
- Good.

[Tess] You know what?
How about we go for a walk

around the reservoir
before Gloria gets here?

Just you and me, Dolly.
What do you say?

I say, "Get my pocketbook."

[Southern accent]
Okay, then, Mama.

I'll get your pocketbook.
It's right here.


[Tess] Maybe we sit by the water
a little while, huh?

I'll see you... later?
We'll touch base?



You look just like
the real Dolly. [Laughs]

Oh, get out of here.

[Micah] Okay, so I made
a whole list of questions

for your coworker
and their partner,

so when we get there,
I kind of figure that...


- [scoffs] No.
- What?

No, I thought
we nixed the avocado.

But you said
you'd think about it.

Look, we're about to meet
the only trans,

nonbinary parents that we know.


And I don't want to be there
as an avocado.

I have questions
about life insurance

- on the list.
- Except it's Halloween.

- [Micah sighs]
- And I'm pretty sure

their family
will be dressed up.

Okay, well, do you have

any other questions
that you want to add?

[scoffs] I mean,
"Why is my baby zaddy so fine?"

- [sighs] I'm serious, Maribel.
- [chuckles]

- What?
- Okay, just...

let me know if you
think of anything, okay?

And, uh, I'm sorry,

but it's a "no" on the avocado.
I love you, though.

- I do, I promise.
- No.

Come on, I need another half.

- Angie!
- Oh...

- Hi. Oh, my God, guess what?
- Hi.

I got my first professional gig.

- What? Oh!
- I'm a paid actor.

- Oh! Oh, my God!
- [squeals]

That's incredible. Bella.

I'm the only undergrad freshman
who made it.

Well, except for this
one other person,

but who cares about her.
You have to come see me tonight.

It's one night only.

Oh, that's such a bummer.

I-I just... I-I can't.

- What? No.
- Yeah,

I have this... I have this exam
that I have to study for.

Yeah, but you always
have to study.

It's like...
you're missing college.

I-I know. I'm-I'm really sorry,

but, you know, I know
you're gonna kill it.

Got to go, break a leg.

- Angie.

I'd like to do
the alternative assignment.

Okay, have you

decided which work
you want to use?

R. Erica doyle's proxy.

Right, okay. So...

all you have to do is reimagine
that in a different medium.

You could do a movement piece,

a culinary work of art,
a short film...

- See you, Hendrix.
- Hey, uh, have a good day, Ben.


Happy Halloween.

Hey, thanks. You, too.

Oh, are you going to the...

Conversation continues

(Gentle music)


How do you always smell so good?

- [door opens]
- [coughs]

[Benny] Sorry, I...
left my phone on the table.

All good, Ben.

See you.

Oh. Yeah, no. I-I...

- [retches]
- Fuck!

Oh, shit. Fuck.

- [crying]
- [Maribel] Micah, language.

Shoot, shoot, shoot.

- I'm-I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Hey, I'm sorry.
- Are you okay?

- Oh, my God.
- You're okay, baby. Hey.

Hey, Maribel.

- Hey, you made it.
- [Maribel] Hi, Reese.

- This is Micah. Micah, Reese.
- Hi, nice to meet you.

- This is Phoenix.
- Hi, Phoenix. Hey...

- So sorry about your shoe.
- No, I...

Thank you for inviting us.

Yes, of course.
I'm happy you're here.


Oh, sweetheart.

- Here, go to nibi.
- Come here.

- This is my partner, Max.
- [Maribel] Hi.

Hi. It's nice to meet you both.

Yeah. No, uh, same. Yeah.

Are you all right?
Does your tummy hurt?

All right, what do we say
we lay off the sugar

- for a little bit? Yeah? Cool.
- Okay.

[Phoenix groans]

And, um, if you follow me,

- I can get you a wet wipe for that shoe.
- I'm sorry, okay?

I-I think I made this
all a lot worse.

- Not at all.
- [Reese chuckles]

Let me tell you,
puke is just a part of it.

- [Reese] Yes.
- I mean, really. Yeah.

- Come with me.
- [Micah] Okay.

- Learning so much already.
- [chuckles]

Well, let's get you a drink.

- Yeah. [Laughs]
- Let's go.

[Reese] It's good to see you
out of the office.

[Maribel] Right?

But the publishing
process just takes

so goddamn long that,
by the time my debut dropped,

I felt like a different writer,

and I can't even
read it now, so...

Yeah, I'm glad
nobody else read it.

- Mm... Mm.
- Stop.

- Yep.
- No. Stop.

[laughs] I'm so sorry.

I'm, like, on chapter six
of the audio book.

Oh, my gosh. It's like you are
sniffing my dirty laundry.

- No.
- I love that for me.

[laughs] No. What... um...


I'm sorry. I don't think
I should be here.



- No, no. It's okay.
- [scoffs]

Why'd you think I wanted
to go out on Halloween so bad?

I just thought you really liked
malt balls or something.

No, no, no, no.
It is because we can be us.

We're in disguise,

and we're gonna have
a good night.

- [laughs] Okay.
- Come on.

- [howling sound plays]
- There's a haunted house.

- Sorry, a what?
- [laughs]

- Oh, my gosh.
- No, no, no, no.

- No, no, no, no, no.
- Oh, my God. Yes!

- Come on.
- Oh, my God.

[indistinct chatter, screaming]

- Okay.
- [Angie] Come on, it's just

the drama department.
It's not gonna be scary at all.


Okay. Um, but,

- if I see a clown...
- Mm-mm.

There's not gonna be a clown.

- Are you sure?
- Yes, yes, yes, yes.


How do you see where
you're stepping? Like...

- She's cute.
- Duh. She looks like a mistake.

- [chuckles]
- Yeah, but, like,

the good kind.


Shane? No.

What? She's fucking hot.


She-She's got
a serious girlfriend.

Yeah, she'd probably
still sleep with you anyway.

[Roxy] Oh, shit.
I don't fuck with that.

[Finley] What are you
starting rumors for?

She's with Tess.
They're, like,

fucking married.

Come here, Finn.

I just think that,
the other day, I...

What about her?

I sort of, maybe,
saw something and...

No way. Bullshit.

- You're nuts.
- Hey, uh,

these are from the folks
over in the booth.

Let me know if you guys
need anything else, okay?

- Well, look at that.
- Oh.

- Cheers.
- Thank you.

Well, what am I?
Fucking invisible?

- No. You're just not single.
- Mm.

Okay, but they don't know that.

[sighs] What's wrong with me?

Well, the costume's not great.

- [Dani] She's right.
- Oh, come on.

Are you kidding me right now?

Look at this shit right here.
Look at this gangster shit.

Yeah, we're looking at it.

It's not good.

- I am "raining cats and dogs."
- Meow, ruff, ruff.

- Definitely not.
- No.

Really? Come on,

it's funny. I made this.

- Yeah, I can tell.
- Aw, fuck.

[Roxy] Look, you're hot,
but the costume's not.

Come with us.
Let's-let's fix this.

All right. I spent
the whole day at Ross's

putting this together.
You know, in that section

where they got all
the crystals and stuff?

- [Dani] That's clear.
- Less clothing, less is more.

It's Halloween.

[laughter, chatter]

So, they actually carried
our first child.

- Can you hold?
- Yeah, it was totally unplanned.

[Max] It was before Reese and I
were together. I was dating this

gay cis guy, and he was, like...

he turned out to be the worst.

[scoffs] Yeah, no, I, uh...

I dated one of those, too, so...

And our middle two
is from my first marriage.

The boring old hetero way.

And then we adopted Phoenix

from foster care last year.

- Hey, Phoenix?
- [Phoenix] Yeah?

[Max] Honey, will you
come and eat some

- of this turkey jerky?
- Thank you, nibi.

She is gonna crash big-time.

Wait, so do they
call you both nibi?

- Or where did that come from?
- Oh, no, no, no.

So, I'm dama and Max is nibi.

That's so cute.

Yeah, we like it.

[Max] Yeah, we just
sort of figured, you know,

- "dad" is just a sound.
- Mm.

I mean, the meaning
is totally made up.

[Maribel] Aw, that's
really funny because,

for the longest time,
I thought "dad" was just

a person my mom made up, so...

[Reese laughs]

- Same, honey.
- [Maribel] Right?

But, baby girl,

you got to get rid of that shit
before the baby comes.

Trust me, it'll hit you
when you least expect it.

Yeah, wow, um...

That's a lot.

Makes sense, though.

Are you two in therapy?

Uh, yeah, I mean, I am,

and, uh,
I'm a therapist as well,

so I kind of live in that world.


Yeah, no, I do not.

We just found it so helpful

to get on the same page
about everything.

You know, parenting...

And life. So much pops up,

so it's just so much easier

if you have the same
shared guiding principles.

Oh, we have one. [chuckles]

- "Don't drop the baby."
- [Reese] Girl.

Obviously, don't drop the baby.

You better quit playing.

I'm not gonna drop the baby.

But, like, no,
what happens if we do?

[Max] I mean, generally,
they'll be all right.

[Reese] Yeah, they bounce
right back. [Laughs]

- [screaming]
- [Angie laughs]

- No, no, no, no, no, no.
- What?

Oh, my God. Calm down.

- What?
- You're screaming.

You're like...
[high-pitched scream]

Stop. You should've
seen your face.

You were like, "Oh, my God.
Hold me, help me."

Why you looking at me?

- You just screamed...
- [both laugh]

I wasn't like that.

- [laughs]
- Okay, you were squeezing my arm

so hard, I thought
you were trying

- to take my blood pressure.
- No, I wasn't. [Laughs]

[both laughing]

Okay. Oh, my gosh.

Well, either way,
I just have to say,

that was the most fun I've had

- in a really long time.
- Yeah?


- Me, too.
- [laughs]

- [Bella] G!
- Oh, my God.

- Shit.
- [Bella] I knew that was you.

You play too much, acting like
you weren't gonna come see me.

Oh, my God, surprise.

I'd never miss your first gig.

Who's that guy
you're kissing, hmm?

Oh, I don't know.
Just... some guy I met in line.

- Oh.
- [chuckles] Yeah.


Congratulations, though.
That's... great.

You know,
I'll-I'll see you at home.


See ya.

Ugh, that was close.
I don't think she saw us.



I'm sorry. Um...


Is something wrong?

Is it, like...

is it, like, awkward, um...

that I'm, like, your teacher?

No. 'Cause when we met,
you weren't...

- Yeah. Right, right.
- You... We weren't.



[both laugh]

But I like you.

I like you, too.

- [both laugh]
- Okay.

- [grunts]
- Okay, I'm gonna need some help.


Darling, go, watch your head

Don't look down, baby,
under the bed

Let it show what you bred...

[phone ringing]


Hey, um, so bit of a snag.

Um, they sent a new nurse.


It's not Gloria,
it's, um... Hold on.

Hey, what was your name again?

- Uh, Victor.
- Victor.

They sent Victor.

All right, well, then,

get him situated, and then
come down here and meet me.

No, I don't think
that I can do that.

[sighs] Tess, it's dinner.

It's gonna be a few hours.
It's just that.

Okay, no,
you're not listening to me.

I'm not gonna leave my mom alone
with a stranger.

But he's not a stranger,

he comes from
the same agency Gloria...

Okay, look, I said
that I'm not doing it, okay?

All right.


- I got to go.
- Do you want...

make me look hotter?

- [gasps] Not Seth.
- [Roxy] Yeah.

- For starters. Yeah.
- [Sophie] What?

- Oh, my God.
- What about this thing?

I think we can split it
at the seams.

- What? Split it?
- Okay.

Are you serious?

[yelps] Oh, my...

- So much better. That's nice.
- Bye.

- Pilates arms.
- You guys...

I love that.
That looks really good.

- Oh, my God.
- Yeah.

The costume doesn't even
make sense anymore.

You got to show
a little skin, baby.

Didn't make sense to begin with.

What are you talking about?

Look at that, spooky.

At least now, you...

can have some swag
for Halloween.

- Oh, my God.
- Look at that.

Is it better, really?

Pssh. You look...

- Sexy.
- Mm-hmm.


All right, I'm gonna go pee.
It's gonna take me

a minute to get
these pants back up.

- [door opens, closes]
- You do look cute, for real.


Excuse me.


She is into you.

What? No.

Yeah, she wants to fuck.
She wants to go.

No, no. She's like that
with everyone.

- No, she is not.
- Yeah, she is.

Stop it. Trust me,
she's into you.

- [toilet flushes]
- Get it.

- [door opens]
- Okay, let's game plan.

If we don't like any
of the prospects here,

there is a rooftop
screening of Bound

on the East side.
Could be some cuties.

Or we could Uber
to the WeHo Carnaval.

Uh, that might be a shit show.

I think I heard about
a block party in Venice.

- We could check that out...
- Do you, uh,

want to... go home with me?

To watch reruns
of One Tree Hill or...

I'm... yes, but, uh,


I mean, like,

you know, I'm single,
you're single.

Could be fun?

I'm halfway out the door, baby.

Okay. [laughs] Let's do it.

[clears throat]

[muffled music playing]

[sighs] Hey, uh...

you good?

Uh, yeah.

Yeah, yeah, I'm good.
[clears throat]

[door opens]

[door closes]

What do you mean
you want to go?

I'm tired.

It's early, though. I mean,
it's, it's not even eight.

Look, I didn't come here
to get interrogated.

I just...
Can we just go home, please?

I haven't even gotten
through half of my questions.

I don't know. Just Google them.

You know you can't really Google
these kinds of questions.

Honestly, I didn't know that
they were gonna be this nosy.

Yeah. No, I know, but...
I don't know, I still like 'em.

And, look, I... This is
important, you know, for me.

[rock music playing]

Babe, I know.

You should stay, though,
but I'm gonna go home, okay?

Okay. Yeah, okay. Love you.

Love you, too.

Excuse me.

- Um, can I have a cupcake?
- Hi. Want a cupcake?

- Yeah.
- Okay, yeah, for sure.

- Here you go.
- Happy Halloween. Love your costume.

Thank you.

Wow. A princess.

[horror soundtrack

Oh, God.

Oh, God, it's gonna get bad.


- Oh, it's bad.
- Mm.

- It's bad.
- Oh, yeah, it's so bad.

Are you not watching?

Oh, no, no, I totally am.

Are you asleep? Oh, my God.

This has happened to me before.

Okay, it's just, my-my eyes
are burning like hell

because I've been in
the same contacts for 48 hours.

Well, why don't you just
take it out?

Because one of them now feels
like it's, like,

lodged up
in my brain or something.

Why didn't you tell me?

Because you wake up looking like
you're in a tampon commercial.

Okay, is that a compliment?
'Cause that kind of feels

- like it could go either way.
- It's just, you're like...

you're like this perfect person.

- Ah...
- And-and I drool, and...

- [loud thud]
- [both shriek]

- [rolling sound]
- What was that?

I-I don't know
'cause I can't see.

[rolling, thud]

- Maybe a squirrel?
- [thud]

that's-that's not a squirrel.

- [loud thud]
- [screams] Okay, okay.

- Oh, my God. What? What? Wait.
- Somebody's trying to break in.

- No. You serious?
- Find my phone. Find my phone.

- Find my phone.
- I don't have your phone.

- [rolling]
- Fuck!

It's in the kitchen.

Oh, hell no, uh-uh.

- just like it happened.
- [laughing] No.


What was that for?

Well, you were gonna
save my life.

Yeah. Yeah, you know what?

I was gonna save your life.

You like me.

Of course I like you.

You're hiding
medical emergencies from me.

Well, you know what?

I've been at your house
for three days,

and you have never once
had anything in your teeth.

You-you wore white pants
and ate a whole plate of nachos,

and you didn't spill a drop.
I mean...

who are you?

I can show you who I am.

I just didn't know
if we were, you know, there.

Yeah. Exactly.

I mean, I didn't know either.

(Soft, gentle music)

- But are we?
- [sighs]

You gonna let me take
that contact out of your eye?

Oh, my God, would you, please?

Yeah, doesn't look so good.

I need to go to the bathroom.


Come on, let's get you up.


Come on.

- Oh. I can use the thing.
- The bedpan? No. Remember?

The doctor said
that it's good for you to get up

- and move around? Oh.
- No, no, no.

I can use the bedpan.

No, you're not gonna use
the bedpan.

The doctor said to get up.

Come on, we can do this.
Come on.

- Oh. Oh, oh, oh. Oh.
- Oh, sorry.

Oh, God. No, you can.
Come on. The doctor said

it's good for you
to get up and move around,

- so we can, we can do this.
- [groaning] Oh, stop. Stop.

- Mom, why are you fighting me?
- [panting]

I don't want to be your patient.

- Mom, I don't mind.
- Victor! Victor?

- [Victor] Yes?
- No, Victor, we're fine.

- You sure?
- We don't, we don't need Victor.

I'm-I'm right here.

I don't want you.

I want Victor!

- [Victor] What's going on?
- Victor, come here!

- It's... We're...
- She's trying to kill me.

No, I'm not.

I'm not. Okay?

We've done this before.
We can... you know,

I'm gonna get you up and you're
gonna go to the bathroom, okay?

- Come on.
- [Patty groans]

- Come on. Come on.
- Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

You need to let me go.

Oh, oh... let me go.

- Let me go.
- Okay.

- Oh, this is not right.
- Okay, I'm sorry.

[groans] I want to go live
in the nursing home.

No, you... no, you don't.

No, you don't.

I know what I want,

and it's not this.

It's not this, Theresa.

- Um...

Oh, thank you.



- Hey.
- Hey.

I'm sorry I didn't tell you
about Shane earlier.

It was stupid.

Why are you doing this?

I talked to Shane.
It's... She didn't...

- [sighs]
- Well, um...

She's probably hiding it
from you because...

she's embarrassed
about what she did.

I mean, she can't just
come out and say it.

She's ashamed.

Is that what it felt like
for you with me?

Um... yeah. I-I guess.
I mean, still does.

So, why do you do it?

That's not something that I do.

I mean, I have done it, but...

- I don't know about that.
- You don't know about what?

I just mean, like, you know,
you kind of have a pattern.

I do not have a pattern.
I made a mistake.

You cheated on your girlfriend
before Dani, too, with Dani.

Yeah, I was 20 years old.

And then you slept with someone
while I was in rehab.

It's not not a pattern.

(Slow, plaintive music)

Is that what you think about?
When you think about me?

No. Mm...

I have to answer that again.



Wow. So this is why
we're not having sex.

What? What does that
have to do with...

All this fucking bullshit
is sitting

between you and me all the time.

And you can't see me.

You can only see the people
that I've fucked

and the mistakes that I've made.

And then you look at me
like I'm fucking crazy

for following the rules
that you made up.

But I'm here.
I'm still here.

And I can't do anything
but wait for you to trust me.

So, tell me, Fin,

when are you gonna stop
punishing me?

I don't want to punish you.

- That's not...
- You know...

I'm just gonna go home.

You guys are still here.

Yeah. Yeah, uh, well,
Maribel had to call it a night.

But, um... I still have,

like, a laundry list of
questions about parenting

and I just thought,
well, maybe you're open to it,

and if you weren't too tired,
we could grab a beer

and you could answer some more?

'Cause I'm the one
who gets to tell you

how great it's gonna be.

Your whole life.

You get to reinvent
everything for yourself

and be your own kind of...

your own kind of parent
and your own kind of man.

Yeah, I'm excited for you.


Uh... it's a, it's a little
harder to cry now, on "T," but...

Oh, yeah. I know that.


So glad to meet you.

- I appreciate that.
- Let me just make sure

Reese is all good with the kids
and then we'll head out.

Sound good?

Sure. That sounds perfect.

- Awesome. I'll be right back.

- What do you got?
- Okay.

Ready? Um, all right.

I have to wear this every night

because I grind
the shit out of my teeth.


Okay. All right,
that's not a bad start.

- Need more?
- Mm-hmm.

- Okay.
- [chuckles]

Mm-hmm. Got it.

I have to wear these sometimes

because my neighbor decided
to sell their house

to the drummer of Maroon 5.

And I know everyone loves
that band, but I'm not a fan.

I'm gonna need some of those.

This is my place.

- It is?
- Yeah.

- It's so nice. Wow.
- Thank you.

I'm so happy to see you
doing so well.

Yeah, what has it been?

Uh, I mean,
what are we going on?

- Twelve, 13 years?
- Yeah.

About that.

so much has happened.

I feel like I've lived

- I've got four kids.

you've changed a lot,

just want to apologize.

I'm great, man.

- Good.
- I'm happy and...

I hope you're happy, too.

I'm trying.

Really good to see you.

you'd like tonight, please.

- On the house, all right?
- Good to see you.

You, uh, you two know
each other?

- Yeah.
- Small world.

- Uh, here.
- Thanks.

- Should we sit down?

Yeah, that'd be great.

All right, what...
So, what do you got?

with the diapers...

how do you know
when to change them?

Like, just
when they smell or...?

You know... listen.

First off,

can I tell you something
that I wish I'd have known?

Yeah, yeah, God.
Anything. Please.

Just don't forget
to have fun, too. Okay?

- Okay.
- What else?

Uh, well, okay,
this one sounds stupid,

but I'm, like,
I'm genuinely worried.

Like, what if the kid is weird?



[Maribel] Ugh, fuck
this city on Halloween.

Rough night?

[scoffs] I spent two hours
waiting for an accessible Lyft.

- Where's Micah?
- Oh, he's talking to a real

smartass who told me
to resolve my daddy issues

- before I have a baby.
- Oh, my gosh.

[both groan]

Wait, is there
SweeTarts in there?

Yeah. Um...


Do you think I'm like Dad?

Fuck, I hope not.

- I'm serious.
- [chuckles]

Do you think I'm, like...

a cheater?

I mean, you do have a pattern.

- Oh, my God.
- What?

That's exactly what Finley said.

Whoa, okay, that is
the only thing

- Finley and I have in common.
- [sighs]

I fucking love her.

I know you do.

You know, and I don't want
to be like Dad.

Can you believe
that bastard just left us?

Oh, my God.

They all leave.
Fuck 'em.

[smacks lips]
But not Micah.


Micah is not Dad, okay?

Micah is...

[sighs] a kind,
sweet, anxious...

...perfect person.

He ain't ever gonna leave you.

- Are you sure?
- Mm-hmm.

[quietly] You could be
nicer to him sometimes.


- Sometimes.
- Mm.

You're not Dad.

[clicks tongue]

But how do you...?

How do you know for sure?

Bitch, 'cause I can see you.

Even when you
can't see yourself.

- I promise.
- Mm.


I do have to tell you something.


SweeTarts is the dumbest

Bella, you were so, so good.

Mm-hmm. Okay.

So... who's the guy?

- Uh... what guy?
- Come on, G.

Don't be like that.
I thought we were friends.

You look so intimidating

- with this makeup on.
- I know.

- Okay.
- [laughs] Spill.

It's just the fact that it's
really new and nobody knows...

- [gasps, squeals]
- ...about it yet.

- Okay.
- A secret boyfriend. Yes!

Okay, wait, tell me everything.

Okay, what do you want to know?


- Go.
- [exhales]

He's my creative
writing instructor.


Oh, my!

- Yeah?
- [gasps]

so please spill.

- Might help him set it up.
- Okay.

just stay in L.A.?

- ♪ Hey, mami
-I fucking love you.

- ♪ Hey, mami
-I love you.

♪ You cute

You were right...

...about everything.

I'm sorry.


I want to trust you,
I just, I don't know how.

Well, we're gonna
figure this out.


I just can't stop thinking
about this person you slept with

while we were on a break.

- They didn't mean anything.
- I know that,

but I think my imagination

is just way worse
than the real thing.


- I know. But... Please.
- [scoffs]

Will you just
tell me everything?




[Maribel chuckles softly]

My God, you look adorable.

Okay, pass me my phone.

I need to remember
this moment forever.

- Really?
- Yeah.

- Do you?
- Yes.

Okay, but it's just for you.

- Yeah, we'll see.
- Not even Sophie.

Um, I don't know about that.

Okay, go. Let's see.

- [camera clicks]
- [Maribel giggles]

Oh, amazing.


It should be fun.

- It should be.
- [chuckles softly]

I'm sorry I'm such
a pain in the ass.

It's okay.

Really, I mean,
I had fun tonight.

And... I really needed that.


Yeah. You looked
pretty good, too.

- Thanks.
- [chuckles]

Don't leave me, okay.

I won't.

Not ever.

But be nicer.


Can I take this off now?

No. I kind of like it.

[both chuckle]

Okay, thank you.

All right, good night.

[music playing faintly]

- Hey.
- Are you ready?

- Yeah.
- Mm.

As much as I'd like to...

I can't.

Maybe let's just...
let's not say anything.


And let's just call this
exactly what it was.

And what was that?

An awakening.

For both of us.


You know, you really, um,
you brought me back to life.

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

This meant...

a lot to me.

No, I mean that, I mean that.

- So, please.
- Okay.

- Thank you.
- Thank you.

Take care.


Fuck you, Shane.
