You scored yourself a

nice corner. Good job.

Hi. I'm Maura Ellis.

I'm not part of a

religious group or anything.

I'm just a nurse who likes

to give back on her days off.

You know, when you're living outdoors,

skin cancer is a real concern.

So I got you some sunscreen,

and you, my friend, have

some irregular moles.

You're a very friendly person.

Wanna come to my house

and take a shower?

Maybe make a list of goals?

Oh, I have a girlfriend.

Great. It's important to have

a lady out there in the street.

What do you call it, a

road bitch or something?

Her name's Karen.

Your little mama? Your street wife?


I'm pretty good with sayings,

so I make these cards for my sister,

but I think maybe you could use one.

Without the dark night, we

would never see the bright stars.

Is this from Twilight?

No, I made it up.

Mmm, no, you didn't.

Yeah, I did.

See you later.


Wait a minute.


You're not homeless?

You were on a roll.

Well, give me back the sunscreen

so I can give it to an

actual homeless person!

Like this lady.

F*ck off! I'm the manager here.

0 for 2.

Polenta! Come get your dinner.


Hi. Can you hear me'?

Hiya, kid. What are you up to today?

Dad, come in front of the

camera so I can see you.

How are things at the hospital, honey?

We heard that Atlanta

had a terrible storm.

Garage sale. Okay.

Can you guys both sit in front

of the camera when you talk

so that I can see you and

hear you at the same time?

We don? Get this Skype crap.

There's nothing to get.


we have some news.

Maura, we have some news.

Oh, my God. Who's sick?

Oh, for cry eye, Maura.


We decided

to sell the house.

Yeah, okay. Funny joke. What's the news?

We are. We're selling it.

The one we grew up in?

Are you selling it to each other?

No, honey.

Why would you do that?

We don't want it anymore.

It's too big.

Look,if this is some kind of financial

thing, I can help you out with money.

No, honey.

All we need you to do is to

come and clean out your bedroom

because it's a bottomless pit.

Okay. I can come. Just don't

make a move until I get there.

Does Kate know about this?

We haven'! Told her yet.

You two take news so differently.

We wondered if maybe

you should tell hen.

Because we don? Want to.

Why do I always have to be the one?

Oh, shit.

I think you guys froze.

Hold on. Can you hear me?


You're blinking. You're fake freezing.

Unbelievable. Just call

her. You're her parents.

Dad! Let it go.

See, where most stylists blow

it is they color your hair

but they leave your Santa eyebrows. Hmm.

They half-ass it, but

I'm a perfectionist.

Thank you.

So why are we covering

this gray today, Phil?

Well, I have a date with an engaging

new gal, somewhat younger than me.

Good for you, because ladies

your age are gross, right?

Well, I just hope it looks

natural. It smells very strong.

No. It's super gentle. They

use it on pageant babies.

Mom! I'm home!

My daughter's home! She has

been gone half the summer.

I'll be right back. If it feels

like it's burning, it's working.


You have been gone for so

long! Did you get taller?

I've only been gone a month, and

I stopped growing a long time ago.

Um, is this supposed to be getting warm?

Let it cook, Phil.



Why are you doing some

guy's hair in the bathroom?

P.S. this does not feel right. Hello.

Why aren't you doing it in a salon?

Please don't tell me

you quit your job again.

I didn't quit! All right.

You know that dipshit

lady on Channel Eleven

who does the segments

where she tries new things?
