- Hey, Dani!

- Hey!

Sweetheart, you took

the competition by storm.

Oh, thanks dad.

Mm, so proud of you.

When the rest of the

competition is here too?

Well, don't get too confident.

Dad, it's called being the best,

not being over-confident.

- I want a horse too.

- Oh! No.

You know

it's nearly four.

I know what time it is.

Excuse me.


No, I told you that

account's in the Caymans.



What's Dad mad at?

Well, I don't know.

Probably something

work related.

He and mom have been fighting.

They kinda fight all the time.

They'll figure it out.

Didn't with your mom.


Hi, Brooke. Want some popcorn?

No, thanks, Jordan.

You know, my answer

hasn't changed.

But you know we'll

pay you a price.

I'm not selling Admiral.

You can probably

find a better horse.

Maybe you're right.

Yeah. Maybe it'll

sprout wings too.

George, George listen to me.

Ok that's why you're in

a six-figure retainer.

No, I don't care.

No! Just get me a continuance.

No. Are you telling me that you

can't just buy me a couple of days?

... And I need a new lawyer.

No, you figure it out!

Hey, here you go.

You know you should ask for the horse,

for your birthday.

You think I'm good enough?

Well, you're my little

brother, aren't you?

Half brother.

Got this in town for you.

Oh, yeah. What is it?

Cookies. Chocolate chip.

Oh, my favorite.

Hey, we're not half anything.

You're my younger brother,

we're family. Got it?

- Okay.

- Okay.

I'm gonna go tell

Mom about the horse.


You'd better hurry!

(Or) I'm gonna eat your sandwich!

Hey Mom, I know

what I want for my...

Where are you going?

Where are we going?

We're leaving.

I packed your suitcase.

It's upstairs in your room.

Go get it and bring

it downstairs.


Go get it right now.

We're leaving and we're

not coming back.

There you are.

We're going.

You're not going anywhere.

You're on the board.

Not anymore.

I had my lawyer divest me of any and

all holdings and positions in the company.

- When did you do...?

- I am not going down with you, Mitch!

Now, I know you have money

stashed offshore and I want my share.

Even if I did stash money overseas,

you wouldn't see a dime!

Jordan will.

What are you doing

for money now?

I sold my stocks and bonds

and I closed the house account.

And I sold some jewelry too.

And that's gonna

last you a week.

Yah, at least I have a week.

Where are they going?

Who cares?


What you got in here? Blocks?

You mean like the

ones in your head.


How come I have to go with you?

Don't argue.

Where are you guys going?


Wait, I forgot my hat.

Well then it must not

have been very important.


You don't seem understand,

we're in a hurry.

But I forgot my hat!

Oh, we'll get you another one.

Just go.

You know, the captain goes down with the ship

but the crew saves itself.

Jordan! Jordan!

Jordan, wait!

Wait, I got your hat!

So, how much will you lose?


including Admiral.

Is there something we could do?

I can't even make change

for a parking meter right now.

They froze all my assets.

I could buy Admiral from you.

With what?

I have money saved up.

And I could pay you...

Admiral's 200,000 dollars.

They're gonna seize him

along with everything else.

I'm so sorry.

What's gonna happen to you?

I only know what's

gonna happen to you.


I've made arrangements with Sam.

You're gonna stay with him.

Uncle Sam?

No! Dad, I can take care of...

Sweetheart, you're minor.


You stay with Sam, or they're gonna put you

through a court-appointed foster care system

and I'm not gonna let that happen.

I know how hard this must be.

He'll have a good home.

I promise.

We're not half-anything.

I've made arrangements with Sam.

You are gonna stay with him.

I'm so sorry.

So how's the gelding?


I still owe you for him, right?

It's okay.

Well, I'll pay.

I'm not poor, you know?

I know that.

I told you not to worry about it.

Gotta go.

I got a guest to pick up.

Guest? You have a guest?

Hey, don't say it like that.

I could have a guest.

Well, first time

for everything I guess.

Dani Fielding?

Who wants to know?

The sheriff sent me. He said

Dr. Sam had an emergency call, so...

I'm sorry, I'm Kevin Winslow.

I can grab these if you like.

I can get them.

You sure?

Yes, I'm sure.

Alright, suit yourself.


You are a really good whistler.

I am? Well, thanks.

Do you know my uncle?

Dr. Sam?

Yeah. Everyone knows him.

Do you like him?

Well, yeah. Don't you?

I don't know.

I only met him once

when I was six.

Has he ever treated you for anything?

For what?

Hoof and mouth disease?

Get in.

Wait, what?

You know your uncle's a vet?


Don't know.

Diesel! What's up buddy?

What's up Diesel?

Who's a good boy?

You need some help?

Diesel, huh?

Yeah. A good name, huh?

Yeah, for a tractor.

All right. I'm taking off.

Okay. Thanks for the ride.

Don't mention it.



Uncle Sam?

Is anybody home?

Apparently he thinks

garbage takes itself out.

Diesel, huh?

You wanna help me clean?

Smart dog.

It's a disaster. Really.

It doesn't even feel

like I'm on Earth.

I miss you too.

Oh here I am. I have to go...

You made it okay?

Sorry, I didn't hear you come in.

The door was open.

Extra bedroom this way.

Are you sure you can find it?

I cleaned up the bed,

it was kinda covered up.
