He will find you.

Look, just keep your

I've done my time.

Hey, I get that, but

My guy says that it takes a

week for a passport... 5K.

7K if you want a

birth certificate.

Alright, just hit me up

No cops yet... figures.

Umm... give them a minute.

We'll just start staging

Miss, miss, can you hear me?

You guys need to go, man.

Good, okay.

You did good, Julia, come here.

It can feel futile, you know?

Just seeing pain every day...

starts to make things

feel meaningless.

I tell myself I know

it's not meaningless.

I know it's not.

I just want to change

things, make it all better.

What things?


The inevitable?

You wish you could

have stopped things?

Things you regret?

Do you want to talk about that?

Not really.

I think you've been doing

a lot better lately.

You've been staying busy,

keeping yourself distracted.

You're still.

You've got to work on that.



My mom... she...

Wake up!

Hey, you're okay!

diarrhea is incredible!

I'm burning up here, wanna

give me some of that?

Don't get all romancy on me

Don't flatter yourself, I

could do a lot better.

Could you? Where

is she then, huh?

I don't have any time.


Hey, what are you doing?

My company's not

good enough for you?

Well, unless you want to play

a little Debussy yourself...

I dug up that fiddle I've been

holding for you the other day.

You take it with you,

I've had it long enough.

I can't...

I'm leaving town.

Where are you going?

I'm just getting

free of everything.

Is that gonna be safe?

I got it worked out.

Well, she belongs with you.

Introducing the Lost and Found

Collection from Sofa Mart.

Intricate detail...

Ed Henry was very clever

about this, by the way...

El nmero...

It had to be some

kind of prank, right?

Sam, it was a prank.

You got goofed, and then

you called the police...

You called the police, right?


Ha! Sh*t!

Umm... did they, you know,

take you seriously?

Doesn't matter... l just...

Okay, alright, I'm sorry.

Alright, go ahead, please.

I just feel like I'm not right

in the head or something.

Hey, hey, you're not alone, okay?

I'm here if you ever

want to talk, or...


Hey, hey... you!

What are you doing?

What are you doing, girl?

You totally missed Chad's party!

No, I was there, I just...

I had to come late.

Alex, hace aos.

You've been doing good work.

Tommy tell you how much

we cleared on Drake?

Was a good score.

How you been?

You been good?


Good... that's good.

We got something new...

something big.

Los Dominicanos.


I don't do that anymore.

Talk to Desiderio, my

deal is no weapons.

Estimated 2.5, maybe three.

But we're going to have

to get our hands dirty.

Dirty hands means doing time.

I'm not going back.

Desi know about this?

The Dominicans?

You running from your debt?

Desi know about this?

He doesn't need to know.

He's happy as long as

you're earning, no?

I tell you what...

You do this, I can

look the otherway.

Freedom has a cost.


You look good... in

your uniform and all.

Why didn't you call?

That's just it... um...

Dennis ran out of minutes

on his phone and...

We're a little short on cash

for the next week and a half.

We appreciate everything

you've done for us

and we're gonna pay you
