He's as full of shit as they are.

No, he's right. Come on.

They're keeping the population down

by getting rid of people

like us to save money.

- Talk is cheap, Cali.

- Mmm-hmm.

He may be right, but he

won't do anything about it.


Hey, Daddy.

Don't "hey, Daddy" me.

Where have you been?

We're less than two hours

until commencement,

and you're out gallivanting.

Gallivanting? I was

picking up your medicine.

Even worse.

A waste of time and money.

Christ, Eva, I told you

not to get this stuff.

I'm tired of listening

to this every day.

It does nothing... I'm not taking it!

- You're taking your medicine.

- I'm not taking it! No, I'm not!

- Yes, you are!

- I'm not taking it. You're taking it back.

Oh, my God, really?

Can we stop?

Look, Papa, maybe it doesn't do

anything, but can you just take it?

For me?


We'll lockdown and then we'll

eat after commencement.

Count me out.

I'm gonna take a long nap,

and don't bother me.

I'm gonna try to sleep through

this godforsaken holiday.

Look, I'm sorry I'm so grumpy, girls.

I hate this night.

Please, forgive me.

You drive me crazy.


Make sure you lockdown everything.

I'll take care of my room.

I love you both.

Very much.

I know.

That was weird.

It must be the night.


I'm gonna take a quick shower,

and then we'll lockdown.

Okay, wait. How did things

go with Mrs. Crawley?

Did you get the raise?

God, what a bitch.

Well, did you at least

make a good argument?

Did you say everything

that we practiced?

I'm sorry, baby.


I want to tell her, Shane.

Hey, did you hear me?

I said I wanna tell your sister...

Yeah, I heard you.

I just don't feel like telling her.


Because as soon as you say

it out loud to another person,

then it's irreversible.
