Oh, I'm sorry, I gotta go see Cole.
Wait, why, what's up with your brother?
Nothing, I just gotta go see him.
You gonna ask me?
Ask you what?
How I did in the poker game.
Yeah, only 'cause the guy who won it from me left early,
so, I didn't get a chance to win it back.
So, you've got my money.
I kind of had to pay some back rent.
I gotta go.
What are you doing?
All this stuff's gotta go to Goodwill.
How do you know without even trying?
I, um, got a call
from somebody in Texas.
Was it Dad?
I don't know, I haven't listened to the message,
You want me to listen to it?
Wha... What do you think that he wants?
Booze. Or money to buy booze.
Or money to get out of jail so he can go buy booze.
As far as I'm concerned, we have a mom and dad
and they're both very much dead.
Let me show you something.
I found this, uh, this morning.
This is, uh, your stepmother, Amanda.
He wants money, right?
Is there anything?
I'm sorry, but this flight is overbooked.
Yeah, well, I know. What does that mean?
No, I know what the words mean, but I...

-Can you get arrested? -I'm just kidding. Is that all you have?
-Uh-huh. -Okay, come on now, we gotta scoot.
I had no idea you'd be so late.
I'm gonna need you to drive.
-(KEYS JANGLING) -AMANDA: There you go.
(SIGHS) Oh, hang on, just a sec.
Before you get in, I wanna show you something.
How's the light out here? Can you see okay?
Well, what do you think?
Well, they're your daddy's suits.
Like some black.
God, are you... What a waste that'd be.
