Lucy, my dear.

If you need anything, call me

and I'll be here in an instant.

Here, that should take

care of the pregnancy.

Hi, I'm Rosemund,

but everybody calls me Rosey.

- You're an artist.

- I just like to draw.

- Can I see what you're doing?

- I'm not any good.

Aw, come on!

I won't make fun, I promise.

Are you like really

upset or something?

It's cool though, I like it.

A little giraffe.

- Gosh, is that your room?

- Mm-hmm.

- It's awesome.

- Thanks.

Oh, my god.

This is the coolest

house I have ever seen.

It's my home.


But it's yours.

Which means I

can give it to you.

Hey, I don't, you

didn't tell me your name.

I'm Lucy.

Lucy, cool.

I cannot believe I let you

and David talk me into this.

Oh, you've come a long way since the

Agnes croft school for girls, huh?

Okay, here we go.

Ladies and gentlemen,

it is my great pleasure

to introduce the guest

of honor for this evening,

Ms. Lucy moon.

It's nights like

these that really show

that the Gulf coast is

becoming a cultural center now.

And we want to, really on behalf

of all of us, welcome you,

and world class artist Lucy

moon, and your son David moon.

Well, thank you.

Very kind words.

It's good to be home.

I wanted to ask you.

Do you think that your son's

live streaming project is

kind of taking away

from the artists,

and the work they're doing here?

Well, David moon has

just joined the show,

and it looks like it's

going to be some night.

You know judging by the

crowd's reaction tonight,

I think you're right.

Hey, mom.

For god's sake, David.

What, why can't you understand

that I have my own talents?

Huh? Look, why can't

you be proud of me?

I don't understand

why you can't manage

to conduct yourself in a manner

of which I can be proud.

Oh, I see.

You know, you really should

have just given me up

for adoption when

you had the chance.

'Cause that would've saved you

so much time and energy.

If these people only

knew that you are just

as great of a mother

as you are as an artist.

God, you'd be a smash.

Ah, okay, okay.

David, rein it in.

Rosey, Rosey, I am

on top of the world.

Oh, I know you are, honey.

Just try to keep it

together, okay?



I would like to thank

you all for coming out tonight

to give Lucy and

David moon a genuine,

Mississippi Gulf coast welcome.

Um, the gallery will be officially

open in just 10 minutes,

where you can all view, for the

first time ever, "dark exposure".

Alongside David moon's


multi-media production,

"hidden perspectives"

which will give an

entirely new ambiance

to our delicious

Mississippi coastline.

Thank you all again for coming.

See you inside.

Don't worry about it.

You just enjoy yourself.

Where the hell is David? He's

supposed to be here right now.

Makes me want to

blow something else.

You are so bad.

In a really good way.

I know, that's why

I keep you around.

I'm kidding, it's a joke.

It's a joke, it's a joke.

Could I please

get everyone's attention?

Hi, I just wanted

to thank you all

for being such great

supporters for the gallery.

Um, in just a few minutes

you will get your reward.

And in the meantime please,

feel free to walk around

and enjoy the works of all

our other wonderful artists.

And just remember to smile,

as David says the entire

world will be watchin'.

Okay, thank you all again.

I saw him go upstairs

with that Connie Lee girl.

- What else is new?

- Just go get him.

Son of a b*tch, I am not

covering for you anymore.

I'm sorry, any more?

You never did, a**hole.

I take care of myself, okay?

I always have, I always will.

So I think I'll be

just fine without you

and mommy dearest

looking out after me.

Why thank you so much for

your mock concern.

F*** you, Austin.

No, f*** David.

Good evening, uncle Walter.

Good evenin'. Remember what I said,

don't tell anyone that I am here.

Oh, sounds lively.

Welcome everyone to

my fantastic mother,

who's always been so

supportive of me's art show.

Art opening.

She looks absolutely


Here's some of her pieces.

Earlier works, that she did.

That one's particularly hideous.

Ah, we can move past here.

Ah, through here.

Ah, and then we

will come to these.

These are her earlier sketches,

where she...

Well, David seems to have

found his metier...


Thanks, I know

what metier means.

Well, let's hope you can

find something someday.

And this is the biggest

anticipation of the night.

The work that she's been

painting for many, many months.

"Dark exposure".

Mm. Once again, my dear,

you have made a splash.

Aw, and your presence

is the icing on the cake.

And that dress.

Come in girl sizes?

I'm so proud of you.

Thank you, honey.

Not really my scene.

I saw what I came for,

thank you.


Sh*t, David, come on.

Hello, world.

You've got my number,

which means your allowed

to leave me a voicemail.

- What do we got?

- Go right inside, sir.

- I think they're ready for you.

- Okay, thanks man.

- All right.

- Thanks.

Thank you.

Hey, Eddie,

so what you have so far?

Name's David moon.

Some kind of new media,

YouTube big shot.

- I don't know.

- How old is he?

Kid's not twenty-five.

Sh*t. Who's that?

Owner of the gallery,

Rosemund Wallace.

No priors, no husband,

boyfriend, no girlfriend.

That's always good to know.

Hey, Mike, get a closer look
