Stop.

What?

Someone's coming.

Shit.

Who is it?

Beats me,

i can't see anything.

This is freaking me out, Adam,

you said that no one

ever comes up here.

Are you okay, ma'am?

Yes, sir.

Sorry, officer.

I suppose you gave

us a bit of a scare.

There's no parking

here after sundown.

Sorry, officer.

You been drinking, son?

Mama said never to

drink on a first date.

First date, very nice.

All right.

You kids get out of here.

Yes, sir.

Thank you, officer.

Sorry, officer.

Oh, boy, what a drag.

You are so lucky

he didn't bust

you for drinking.

Yeah, he had no right.

Besides, only park rangers

can ticket you in these parts.

You

are so full of it.

Come on.

This guy is just

dying to give us a ticket.

What the hell

is he doing?

God damn.

No, Adam.

You're such an idiot!

Officer, I don't know

what you think

i was doing, but...

Hey, you're not the...

What the hell is that?

Who the hell are you?

Hey, mister,

I'm talking to you!

No, Adam!

Please, no,

we didn't do anything wrong!

Run, lula! Run!

Help! Help!

Hey, honey, I'm home.

Hey.

Hey.

What did you do with the,

uh, grocery money?

And how was your day?

Let me tell you

a little bit about mine.

It was great.

You want one?

Where'd it all go?

To our future.

Harvey won us the bid

on that storage locker.

Oh, god, another one?

You know,

it's your decisions,

and not your conditions,

that determine

your future, Zoe.

What? That's a quote by

your Anthony Robbins.

You didn't

even read that book.

Maybe a little.

Oh, my god.

Baby, we got that

riding mower, remember?

We sold that

for a good buck,

and then what about

that storage locker

with all that silverware?

We made out like

bandits on that.

Mick, that's two,

what about

all the other ones?

Oh, lord Jesus. Okay,

what did you end up

paying for this one?

1,200

what?

$1,200?

Yeah.

Mick, that's

three months' rent.

Harv and I split it, so...

I'm gonna kill you right now.

I'm mad

at you, we can't...

Mick, we're never gonna

get out of this shitbox

betting on storage lockers.

What are you saying?

What am I saying?

I mean... oh, god.

It's not what I'm saying,

it's what you're saying.

You sit there,

and you sit there, and go,

"oh, Zoe, I wanna

give you a better life."

"Oh, Zoe,

i wanna actually give you

a real house one day."

But I'm the only grown-up

standing here in the room,

and I don't wanna

be the grown-up.

Don't even, don't even.

No, no, no,

no, no, just...

What?

This is your special spot,

your special spot.

I hate you

so much right now.

What do we own now?

Well, let's go talk to Harvey,

and check it out, right?

You're so rotten.

Stop it. Get outta here.

Come on, babe.

So, Tina,

she was the one

who tipped us off.

She said it was owned

by some rich old woman.

And I ain't talking like,

living in a trailer with

a caddy in the driveway

kind of rich,

I'm talking more like

real housewives of

Atlanta kind of rich.

Baby, we got to

take this thing in

before it completely

craps out on us, okay?

Yeah, yeah, I know.

Just as soon as

we can pay for it.

Cut me some slack.

I didn't say anything!

I'm just trying to

dig us out of this rut.

Do you

have a bulldozer?

Pfft. Man,

you know I'm ain't programed

to take shit from nobody.

It ain't in my genes.

Is having

a roof over your head

in your genes?

How much money do you think

you've actually made

on these lockers

over the past two years?

I don't know,

a little over $1,000.

So, you just threw

most of that back

today on one locker.

That's all I'm saying.

My sister's got
