- He did it again.

- He did?

I tried helping,

but he keeps asking for you.

- Yeah, he does that.

I want Brandi!


I'm here, Mr. Binckley.

I'm here.

Have we been bad again?

All right. You know what to do.

Oh, Mr. Binckley!

- I want Brandi!

- I'm right here, Mr. Binckley.

I'm Brandi. You know I'm Brandi.

I'm right here.

- Mr. Binckley's all cleaned up?

- Yes, he's fine.

We're gonna have to talk to his family.

He is really becoming chronic.

No, you don't have to do that.

I'm more than happy to take care of him.

I know you are, Brandi,

but you may not have much time

to be spending on cases

like Mr. Binckley anymore.

What do you mean, Mrs. Petersen?

I'm considering making you

the new NA Captain.

- The captain of the NAs?

- Yes.

- Would you be interested?

- Yes. Very much.

I've watched you with the residents

and with the other nursing assistants

and I like what I see.

Of course, this is not an official offer,

but I wanted you to be aware

you are high on my list of possible captains.

Thank you, Mrs. Petersen.

I'll really try to do my best.

I know you will.

Then I can count on you

coming in tomorrow?

- Uh, Saturday?

- I know what day it is, Brandi.

Yes, of course, I know you do,

but I came in last Saturday.

Oh, I see.

But, no, no, no. I can come in.

It's fine. It's no problem.

Good, that's what I'm looking for.

Now, don't let me keep you.

Thank you, Mrs. Petersen.

Thank you a lot.

I'm just doing my job.

And I'm just asking for another week.

A couple of days even?

This ain't a charity ward.

Just another day.

I've got a job interview.

You vacate or I call the cops.

Your choice.

My choice?

What are you doing?

Making my choice.

Uh-uh. You don't take anything.


You pay or your stuff stays.

Listen, I've got a job interview.

Can't I at least get my good clothes?

All right, all right, go ahead.

I'll wait.

- You'll wait?

- I'll wait.

I'll be right back.


What the hell are you two doing?

Yeah, well, shove it!

I don't need it, all right?

F***ing a**hole!

Shut your mouth.

Get back in your room

or I'm calling the cops.

- All right, that's it. You're out of here.

Come on.

What the hell have I got

to put up with this sh*t for?

F***ing a**hole!

Get in here right away.

Yeah, they're on the third floor.

What the f*** are you doing?

Hey! Hey!

Get back here, you little f***er!

Get back here!

F***ing little bastard.

Stop. Stop, you little f***er!


F*** it.

Please, spare change?


Why don't you watch

where the f*** you're going, you a**hole?


Sorry about this. Couldn't get my suitcase

and get here on time.

I'm Thomas Bardo.

I have a 1:
00 appointment.

Take a seat. Keep all that on your person.

A seat?

- But I have an appointment.

- Take a seat.

But I have a 1:
00 appointment

and it's 1:
00 now. I was almost late.

Sir, I don't want to have to tell you again.

Take a seat.

- But I have...

- Sir?

All right, thank you. I'll take a seat.

Thank you.

Keep all that on your person.

I will, of course. Thank you.

Bradeau. Thomas Bradeau?

Bardo. Thomas Bardo.

This way.

Take a seat.

Hi, I'm Thomas Bardo.

Sorry about the clothes.

And how do you spell your name?

B- A-R-D-O.

Yeah, you'll probably see

that I was a project manager.

Very challenging job,

but my company decided to downsize

just before my benefits kicked in.

You know how that is.

Then the unemployment ran out.

I thought I might have

better luck in the city...

but... You know how that goes.

You know,

I can't seem to find you in the computer.
