(GRAND ORCHESTRAL FANFARE

PLAYING)

WOMAN:

Eyewitness News,

the Chicago area's

leading news,

with John Brewery.

BREWERY:

Prominent Chicago businessman

and real estate developer

in a tax fraud

and money-laundering scheme

that robbed retirees

and pension funds

- of nearly $75 million.

GROWING LOUDER)

(TICKING CONTINUES)

(TICKING STOPS)

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh

Sunday morning,

I'm still workin'

I gotta keep on workin'

Until I earn my way home

Sunday evening,

I'll be workin'

I gotta keep on workin'

Until I find my way home

Oh, oh, oh

We're tryin' to get by

I don't know how

We hold on

Just tryin' to get along

somehow

Woke up Tuesday

feelin' lonely

Wasn't no one there for me

There ain't a soul around

Thursday came

and you still owe me

Acting like you want me,

ain't...

Woke up Tuesday

Feelin' lonely

Wasn't no one there for me

(BREATHING WEAKLY)

Thursday came

And you still owe me

Acting like you want me...

(CRUNCH, MUSIC STOPS)

GLOVER:

Five bedrooms, tennis court.

It's almost 25 acres of woods.

What's an acre?

Mom?

It's a measurement of land.

Uh, it's like the size

of someone's property.

GLOVER:
I thought

Grandpa lived in the city.

He did.

Uh, he kept this place

as, like, a...

like, a vacation house.

So why are you selling it?

Because it's part

of the estate,

and that's what you do

when someone passes away.

But why are you selling it?

Because it reminds her

of everything she hated

about her father.

Really?

What? That's what you said.

Just because your grandfather

and I didn't get along

- doesn't mean I hated him.

- If you died,

I wouldn't sell our house.

Hmm. I would.

She's just ornery

'cause she was supposed to see

- her boyfriend this weekend.

- Whatever.

He's not my boyfriend.

Then why did he make you

a playlist?

Filled with... sex songs.

Oh, my God.

Shut up, freak. Mom.

- Okay...

- Mom!

- Seriously, I'm gonna kill you.

- Okay, enough,

both of you.

I know this is not

how you wanted

to spend your weekend,

but guess what.

Me, neither.

So, a whole playlist?

All right, we're here.

(GATE OPENING)

Grandpa had horses?

SHAUN:

Mm-hmm.

Sold them after I left.

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

(GROANS SOFTLY)

You grew up here?

Mm-hmm. What do you think?

Seems lonely.

(ALARM BEEPING STEADILY)

(SIGHS)

(SIGHS)

(STEADY BEEPING CONTINUES)

What's wrong?

I don't know. Stay here.

(STEADY BEEPING CONTINUES)

The power must have went out.

Hey, Jas, can you see if

you can turn that thing off?

I get first dibs

on the bedroom.

Whatever. Nobody cares.

(PHONE RINGING)

Hi, Maggie.

- MAGGIE:
You guys get in okay?

- Yeah, just a few minutes ago.

I hope traffic wasn't too bad.

- No, we missed most of it.

- Oh, good. Good.

Listen, if it's

all right with you,

I'll drop off

the paperwork tonight.

We should be able

to have the house

on the market

as soon as next week.

Shaun, are you there?

Yeah, that sounds good.

Okay. Well, I just

want to say again

how sorry I was

to hear about your father.

All right, well,

we'll see you tonight.

- (JASMINE GROANS)

- (PHONE BEEPS)

Thank God there's

some cell phone service.

Girl, you just got

your phone privileges back.

Don't abuse them.

Listen, I'm gonna need

you and Glover's help

this weekend

to get the house ready.
