Interior to command.

We've finished our sweep and we've got

one victim outside being treated by EMS.

Do you got anyone else

in there?

What a shame, huh? It was one

of the oldest buildings in Georgia.

Ronnie, promise me

you'll make an effort, OK?

- Does Dad know she was arrested?

- Jonah!

I didn't do it, OK?

Stay out of it.

Just in time.


- Dad!

- Hi, Joe-boy. How are you, man?

I'm great. How are you?

Here we go!

- I missed you. Look how big you are.

- Me too.

You're like six-three now.

- You live on the beach?

- You bet.

That is awesome!

- Don't go in the water.

- Be careful if you go in the water.

- How are you?

- I'm good.

That's right, we have two children.

Hi, Ronnie. How are you, sweetheart?


You have no idea.

- Hi. Can I help you?

- Strawberry shake.

Here you go.

That's you, Will!

I'm sorry.

- You OK?

- I would rather drink my milkshake...

- than wear it, but I'm fine.

- I'm sorry.

You look it.

Forget it.

Hey, look. I really am sorry.

- Didn't we just do this?

- I'm Will, by the way.

- Let me buy you another shirt.

- No, thanks. I'm good.

Come on. I'm practicing

Southern hospitality.

Is that what they call

hitting on strangers now?

You know what? I have no interest

in buying you a shirt.

- Is that so?

- I'm just over here...

so the other team can catch a breath.

- Pushy and conceited.

- Why don't you come watch.

I'll pass.

Thank you.

I'm glad you were able to fix it.

Yeah. Ronnie did a pretty good job

with that.

Now I know what a piano looks like when

somebody takes a baseball bat to it.

- You rehearsed that so many times.

- Is she still not playing?

Not since the day you left.

Brian even bought her an electric piano.

She won't go near it.

- An electric piano from Brian?

- Steve.

- How is she otherwise?

- Well, let's see.

Grades were in the toilet.

It's a miracle she graduated

from high school.

And she doesn't have one friend

without a pierced something.

- Thanks.

- Yeah.

She told you she got

into Juilliard, right?

No. Without playing?

They said they've been

watching her since she was five.

Not that it matters.

She says she's not going.

Well, she'll make the right decision.

I'm glad you're so sure.

- Kim...

- We hurt them, Steve.

Especially Ronnie.

- We can try and pretend...

- I'm not gonna do this. OK?

Things happen. Nobody's perfect.

And Ronnie...

Ronnie will be fine.

A unicorn. How mythical.

I'd stick with the stained one

if I were you. Those suck.

Pretty much.

OK. Come with me.

There are some cooler places.

Let's go!

Call, write, text, but communicate.

- OK!

- OK? I love you.

Got lipstick.

Tell your sister I love her.

- All right.

- Bye!


- Ready?

- Come on!

Bye, Mom!


What is all this stuff?

Well, I am building a stained-glass

window for the church up the road.

I saw it. How did it happen?

Nobody's certain.

They think it was some sort of accident.

- This is so cool.

- Yeah?


I'm not really looking...

for an assistant right now, so...

Why not? No, Dad, I'd do it!

- Yeah?

- Yeah!

- You want it?

- I'd do it for free!

- OK. You're hired.

- Really?

- Yeah.

- That's so cool.

What kind of name is Blaze?

A nickname my boyfriend,

Marcus, gave me.

My real name's Galadriel.

It's from Lord of the Rings.

My mom's weird like that.

Hey, I'm lucky it wasn't Frodo.

How much?

- Twenty.

- Too much.

Oh, wait.

I'm sorry. Today, it's free.

- No, no. Stop.

- It's OK. I do it all the time.

No. I can't. I already got busted once.

A woman with a record.

- Please.

- I like that.

Stop it.

- Dad's looking for you.

- Tell him you didn't see me, brat.

- Five bucks. And two for "brat".

- No way.

He's getting closer.

Don't make me raise it to ten.

Shut up.

I promise to make him take me on the

Twister three times so you can get away.

- Nice doing business with you.

- Yeah, yeah.

Cool. So you live in New York?

Yeah, I do now. I'm from Atlanta.

I moved up north when I was 11.

My dad moved here just a few years ago.

- Without you all?

- Irreconcilable differences.

Think that's the phrase.

- He bailed.

- Families suck.

I don't even live with mine.

I stay at Marcus' usually.

You have to meet Marcus. Let's go.

- Hook me up!

- Yeah!

That's him.

Thank you, everyone.

Donations are accepted.

In fact, they're encouraged.

This is good, huh?

Good to have a little man time.

Ronnie never opens any of your letters.


Mom says it's because she has PMS.

Do you know what that is?

Dad, I'm not a little kid anymore.

Means "pissed at men syndrome".


So, Will, you want to get out of here?

My parents are at some lame-o

award thing with the governor.

They won't be home for hours.

- They must trust you.

- Imagine that.

My man! She tell you the good news?

- Yeah.

- Oh, my God.

Cassie wants us to pick up some beer

on the way home, so we gotta do that.

You know what, man?

I'm gonna skip it.

No, no. Hello, hello.

Eyes right here, buddy. No.

No skipping it tonight.

Look. Listen to me. OK.

Will yes. Ashley yes.

Ashley yes. Cassie yes.

Cassie yes. Scott yes!

- Come on. Take one for team Scott.

- Where you been, buddy?

- You guys don't hang out with us.

- Get off him!

Get off him. I love you, Will.

You're so butch.

Always looking out for your friend.

Come on. Dude, come on.
