I never knew you had this

kind of wild side, honey.

Are you sure

you know what you're doing?

Absolutely, you're going

to be great at this.

Oh, here ya go!

Why aren't you strapped

to an instructor?

I'm certified,

I jump solo.



But I'm, I'm not ready!

All right, honey,

we have to talk.

- What?

- I'm breaking up with you!

- You're what?

- It's not you it's me!

- What?!

- There's an Uber waiting for you when you land!


I liked that one.

Yeah, he seemed nice.

Do you still

want to make a jump?

There's another

landing field up ahead.

Are you crazy?

I could die.

Yeah, I'll be there

at 6PM sharp like always.

No. Because there's never

anybody I want you to meet, Mom.

Yeah, there still swimming,

last I checked.

All right, I'll see you Sunday.

I love you too, bye-bye.

- Dinner Sunday at Mom's?

- Yeah.

Oh, I'm sorry, man. You want

to come to dinner on Sunday?

Aw thanks, man,

I'd love to.

So, what seismic earth shift

got your ass off the couch

and in to my office today,


Basketball with the guys.

Oh, yeah.

Man, I can't do it,

I got to work.

- Hoops, bro.

- I hear ya, I can't do it. Look at this.

Oh, oh, who's

the little brunette

with the big guy?

What did he do, kill her?

- An assault.

- He beat her up?

- She kicked his ass, actually.

- Ha! Yeah?

Yeah, so she caught him

having sex with the neighbor.

There was an altercation,

and he's suing her for damages.

So, she hired me to make it all

go away. She still loves the guy.

She wants him back

after he boned the neighbor?

I don't know what

to tell you, man.

Sexual impulses are strong,

but sometimes,

I guess love is stronger.

Is that the Hayworth file?

It sure is.

So, you're handling

the arbitration?

Yeah, I gotcha covered.

You bet, you can head home

to the kids.


Whoa, whoa!

Hey, honey. No, the Adderall

is in the green bottle,

it's organic.

Yeah. No, honey,

it's right next to the...


That's liquid gold!

Nope, that's a goner.

Honey, you're going to

have to take some milk

out of the freezer.

I lost the afternoon load.


It's still warm.

I don't care. Calvin,

I need you in my office.

You can close the door

behind you.

You like it here

don't you, Calvin?

Your work has been outstanding.

Partners have noticed.

Yeah. You know, I'm surprised,

but you can actually do good

work in an oversized law firm

with hourly rates

higher than gods.

Hmm. How are the women's rights

cases going?

Mm. Just fine, great.

Still winning?

I'm undefeated.

But you knew that.

Hm. That's good.

It's really good.

Gena, why am I here?

I have a situation

that needs handling,

and I think you are

just the person for the job.

- Client?

- Blogger.

My sister, actually.

Ah-ha. The mysterious sister

you never speak of.

She was only 15

when our dad died.

Just a kid, really.

She was heartbroken.

And then... I went off

to law school...

Well, I'm sure she's fine.

She might look fine

from the outside.

She's a successful scientist

here in Portland, actually.

She writes formulas

for Fortune 500 companies.

- What kind of formulas?

- Various things.

Did you know that there

is a formula for happiness?

Yeah, it's called whiskey.

Anyway, that is

all a faade.

The real Lauren is

a different person altogether.

Look at this.

The Pig Theory.

The point of

infidelity and guilt.

Gena, this is

kind of awesome.

It's not awesome,

it's insane.

Can you imagine the impact she's

having on these people's lives?

Not to mention

her own mental wellbeing.

They're empowering her.

She's been offered
