When you call me

back on Wednesday,

just ask for me directly, okay?


All right, I'll

talk to you then.

See ya.


Amanda, I was just

talking about you.

Oh, really?

You find something for me?

Actually, no.

I was just talking to Jim

about how difficult it's

been to get you in anywhere.

There's gotta be something.

It's just this job market.

It is over saturated.

The jobs that you would

normally go for and land,

they're just being

snatched up by folks

who are overqualified

to begin with.

At least have high

school diplomas.

So what are you saying?

I should go back to high school?

No, I'm just saying that

getting a ged wouldn't hurt.

I don't need a

ged, I need a job.


I can't lean on my mom anymore.

She can barely pay

the bills as it is.

She's gonna kick me out.

Oh, I know.

Just keep showing up, okay,

and keep on those classifieds.

Something is gonna

happen, I promise,

and when it does, I'll

give you a call, okay?



Keep your chin up.



The Oregon hotel.

Hi, this is Amanda Millard.

I think I missed a phone call

regarding a hotel position.

Honey, I received

your rsum in the mail

the other day, and

I was wondering

if you could drop by.

I'd love to meet you, and

talk about a position.

Okay, where did you

say you're calling from?

I don't recall sending...

The Oregon hotel in Mitchell.

Don't tell me you've

never been to Mitchell.

I can't say I have.

I did send a bunch of

resumes out last week,

but I don't recall sending

anything to Mitchell.

Well, Fred,

who owns the royal lodge,

he sent it to me.

He knew I was looking

for someone like you.

Oh, okay.

So, how do I get there?

Just take highway

26 out through Prineville,

and we're about 80 miles east

through the painted hills.

80 miles?

Can you give me a few hours?

There's a few things I

need to take care of.

Oh, of course,

I'm here all the time.

See you then.


What was your name?



Well, tell Daryl to

tell Stacy to back off.

Because it's his mess.

Well, you should.

It's his mess,

he's gotta fix it.

Well, tell him to fix it.

I don't know why you're making

such a big deal out of that.

Well, then just don't

talk to Stacy then.

Bring him over here, I'll tell

him to make Stacy back off.

In a minute.

Oh, no.


That girl cannot

get away with it.

Yeah, exactly.

Can I talk to you a moment?

Julie, I'm gonna have

to have you pause it.

I'm gonna call you right back.

Because Amanda's

here buggin' me.

All right.

I will call you right back.


I got a job interview,

but I need to borrow

like 20 bucks for gas.

Amanda, you are bleeding me dry.

How much longer do I

have to support you?

Well, how am I

supposed to pay you back

if I don't get a job?

You're unemployment.

Mom, that was up two weeks ago.

It's like 20 dollars.

God damn it.


I'm so over this dame.

She's gonna...

God damn it.

Look at what you made me do.

I'll clean it up.

Stop, you're

gonna make it worse.

Take the money.


I got it.

Son of a b*tch.

Whole glass of wine.





I'm sorry, honey.

I didn't mean to frighten you.

I'm Mildred Colvin.

You call me Millie,

everybody does.

So nice to meet you.

I can't tell you how happy I am

that you were able to

come on such short notice.

It's a sign of a real go getter.


So, what do you think

of our little town?

Well, it's little.

It's not exactly

elaborate, but, I don't know,

people just seem to

love to come here.

We do try to keep it like

it was in the old days,
