TRANSCRIPTION

1
00:00:08,758 --> 00:00:10,802
[Sam] Fear is as common
in the animal kingdom

2
00:00:10,885 --> 00:00:12,345
as it is among us humans.

3
00:00:12,637 --> 00:00:15,390
-So what do I do now?
-[Casey] You just dip it in.

4
00:00:16,391 --> 00:00:20,770
[Sam] When they're flipped over some toads
will go limp and cross their little arms.

5
00:00:24,107 --> 00:00:25,942
-It's amazing, right?
-Yeah.

6
00:00:26,276 --> 00:00:29,195
It tastes like cheese dipped
in apple juice.

7
00:00:29,279 --> 00:00:30,488
Exactly!

8
00:00:32,157 --> 00:00:34,034
[imitates explosion]

9
00:00:34,117 --> 00:00:36,494
You miss your friends, don't you? Huh?

10
00:00:36,578 --> 00:00:38,455
-Lonely girl.
-No. Shut up.

11
00:00:38,538 --> 00:00:41,249
-[Evan chuckles]
-Izzie would've loved this, though.

12
00:00:41,332 --> 00:00:43,001
Attention, everybody!

13
00:00:44,210 --> 00:00:45,795
[pants] It's finally finished.

14
00:00:46,212 --> 00:00:47,047
What's this?

15
00:00:47,547 --> 00:00:49,257
My portfolio for art school.

16
00:00:50,175 --> 00:00:51,259
Hey!

17
00:00:51,634 --> 00:00:54,637
No eating around the portfolio.
Especially not cheese dipped

18
00:00:54,721 --> 00:00:57,265
in apple juice.
That's just asking for trouble.

19
00:00:57,348 --> 00:01:01,061
-Hey, Sam... this is amazing.
-I know.

20
00:01:02,062 --> 00:01:03,104
ANTARCTIC PENGUINS

21
00:01:03,188 --> 00:01:04,147
ANTARCTICA
SOUTH POLE

22
00:01:04,230 --> 00:01:05,231
[Casey] It really is.

23
00:01:08,109 --> 00:01:10,904
[Casey] I thought it was weird
when you said you wanted to pursue art

24
00:01:10,987 --> 00:01:14,741
instead of something science-y,
like penguin studies or whatever,

25
00:01:14,824 --> 00:01:17,494
but... this is really good.

26
00:01:17,577 --> 00:01:21,831
It's late in the application process,
so I really need to knock their socks off.

27
00:01:21,915 --> 00:01:24,417
-That's a phrase.
-[Evan] Indeed.

28
00:01:25,126 --> 00:01:28,630
I'm applying to a place called
the Rhode Island School of Design,

29
00:01:28,713 --> 00:01:31,633
also called RISD,
in Providence, Rhode Island.

30
00:01:32,217 --> 00:01:34,969
-It's a very good school.
-That's really cool.

31
00:01:35,470 --> 00:01:37,931
I've never been to Rhode Island.
Actually...

32
00:01:38,389 --> 00:01:39,724
I've never been anywhere.

33
00:01:39,808 --> 00:01:40,809
Me neither.

34
00:01:41,476 --> 00:01:43,353
Yeah, I figure why travel?

35
00:01:43,436 --> 00:01:46,147
Beth wakes me up
with fresh morning pastries every day.

36
00:01:46,231 --> 00:01:49,359
So, that's a routine
that I'm just not willing to give up.

37
00:01:49,943 --> 00:01:51,444
I like my routines too.

38
00:01:52,112 --> 00:01:53,113
A lot.

39
00:01:53,571 --> 00:01:56,908
Yeah, but it's going to be great.
I mean, you'll make new routines.

40
00:01:56,991 --> 00:02:00,578
Yeah, and you're gonna make new friends,
you're gonna go to new classes.

41
00:02:00,662 --> 00:02:03,873
You'll get a pair of new New Balances.

42
00:02:03,957 --> 00:02:06,209
You can go check out your new hood...

43
00:02:06,668 --> 00:02:08,169
-Dude.
-What?

44
00:02:09,546 --> 00:02:10,880
That's a lot of new stuff.

45
00:02:10,964 --> 00:02:15,301
[Sam] In humans, fear may look different,
but it's caused by the same things.

46
00:02:15,385 --> 00:02:18,429
No, Sam. It's gonna be fine. Really.

47
00:02:18,513 --> 00:02:22,684
[Sam] A predator, a loud noise,
a change in your environment.

48
00:02:22,767 --> 00:02:23,768
I mean, look at me.

49
00:02:23,852 --> 00:02:27,772
I didn't want to go
to Clayton and now, well...

50
00:02:29,065 --> 00:02:31,693
I hate it, but that's a bad example.

51
00:02:31,776 --> 00:02:36,614
Yeah, well, it's perfectly...
normal to be a little bit nervous.

52
00:02:36,698 --> 00:02:40,410
You just... You need to just
take your mind off stuff, you know?

53
00:02:40,618 --> 00:02:42,704
-Maybe blow off a little bit of steam.
-Yeah.

54
00:02:43,329 --> 00:02:47,667
Well, the wisest man I know did tell me
the perfect way to blow off steam.

55
00:02:48,376 --> 00:02:50,712
-Awesome, dude. Do that.
-Yeah.

56
00:02:50,795 --> 00:02:52,422
-[tennis ball machine thumps]
-[gasps]

57
00:02:52,505 --> 00:02:53,506
You were right.

58
00:02:54,007 --> 00:02:57,051
This does take my mind off things.
My mind is on nothing.

59
00:02:57,802 --> 00:03:00,597
[grunts] One word. Three letters.

60
00:03:00,680 --> 00:03:01,514
Duh.

61
00:03:02,056 --> 00:03:03,266
[both yell]

62
00:03:11,357 --> 00:03:13,193
CLAYTON IS ABOUT FRIENDSHIP

63
00:03:13,276 --> 00:03:17,238
[coach] An alumna painted that.
Actually, someone I went to school with.

64
00:03:17,322 --> 00:03:18,990
Ironically, she was a real asshole.

65
00:03:19,407 --> 00:03:21,409
[chuckles]

66
00:03:21,993 --> 00:03:23,119
So how you doing?

67
00:03:23,203 --> 00:03:26,539
I haven't seen you
with the team much lately, you girls okay?

68
00:03:27,916 --> 00:03:28,750
Yep.

69
00:03:29,709 --> 00:03:30,710
You sure?

70
00:03:32,837 --> 00:03:33,713
I'm fine.

71
00:03:35,340 --> 00:03:37,133
Well, we need to talk biology.

72
00:03:37,342 --> 00:03:39,219
Mr. Kawahara says you're failing.

73
00:03:39,302 --> 00:03:42,513
And if you can't get your grade up,
you'll lose your scholarship.

74
00:03:42,597 --> 00:03:44,349
What? No, I...

75
00:03:45,308 --> 00:03:47,101
I can't afford this place without it.

76
00:03:47,185 --> 00:03:49,729
I know,
but there's still time to fix this.

77
00:03:51,105 --> 00:03:53,942
Not as much time as if you'd come
to me weeks ago when I'd asked.

78
00:03:54,609 --> 00:03:58,112
Sorry. I...
I just had, like, a lot going on, so--

79
00:03:58,529 --> 00:04:00,323
Now it's time to buckle down.

80
00:04:00,531 --> 00:04:03,993
Kawahara says that you'll be fine
if you ace the midterm.

81
00:04:04,077 --> 00:04:06,704
So that's your mission,
beat biology class.

82
00:04:06,788 --> 00:04:10,583
I promise I will eat,
sleep, and breathe biology.

83
00:04:11,960 --> 00:04:14,504
Biology, it's what's for breakfast!

84
00:04:17,340 --> 00:04:19,217
[sighs] Okay, bye.

85
00:04:26,224 --> 00:04:28,226
[phone ringing]

86
00:04:29,352 --> 00:04:30,436
Hello?

87
00:04:32,772 --> 00:04:33,606
Who?

88
00:04:33,690 --> 00:04:38,236
[singing]

89
00:04:45,410 --> 00:04:46,411
Wow.

90
00:04:48,204 --> 00:04:51,749
Thank you, Sabrina, for singing
your answer to "How was your day?"

91
00:04:51,833 --> 00:04:53,710
And quite beautifully, I might add.

92
00:04:53,876 --> 00:04:57,630
Oh! Hi, Sam. We're about to get started,
why don't you take a seat.

93
00:04:57,714 --> 00:04:59,257
I got an interview with RISD.

94
00:04:59,340 --> 00:05:02,302
Really? Sam, that is great news.

95
00:05:02,427 --> 00:05:04,137
RISD is a fantastic school.

96
00:05:04,220 --> 00:05:07,598
I know. I worked so hard
on my art portfolio.

97
00:05:07,682 --> 00:05:10,310
I'm very proud. Do you want to see it?
It's in my backpack.

98
00:05:10,393 --> 00:05:14,272
Well, we will all look at it after group.
But until then, yay, Sam!

99
00:05:16,774 --> 00:05:18,985
Yay, Sam. Are you excited?

100
00:05:20,111 --> 00:05:21,863
I'm mostly excited.

101
00:05:21,946 --> 00:05:25,700
However, in my initial research,
I discovered some alarming details.

102
00:05:25,783 --> 00:05:30,163
The campus is on a hill and I don't like
the idea of living at an angle.

103
00:05:30,246 --> 00:05:32,957
I couldn't find chicken fingers
on the cafeteria menu.

104
00:05:33,041 --> 00:05:36,753
I'm hoping the online menu is incomplete
or seasonal.

105
00:05:37,337 --> 00:05:39,172
And according to my research,

106
00:05:39,255 --> 00:05:42,759
a large number of artists die
penniless and alone,

107
00:05:43,009 --> 00:05:46,304
but I'm trying to stay optimistic
'cause my mom and Paige told me to.

108
00:05:46,387 --> 00:05:49,265
No chicken fingers? Dying alone?

109
00:05:49,349 --> 00:05:51,267
That sounds awful. You shouldn't go.

110
00:05:51,351 --> 00:05:53,895
[Ms. Whitaker] There will definitely be
some things to get used to,

111
00:05:53,978 --> 00:05:56,856
but this is a huge accomplishment, Sam.

112
00:05:56,939 --> 00:06:00,443
You guys, sometimes I feel like we focus
so much on what's difficult

113
00:06:00,526 --> 00:06:02,987
that we forget to celebrate
our accomplishments.

114
00:06:03,071 --> 00:06:05,198
[Ms. Whitaker]
Who else had an accomplishment this week?

115
00:06:06,949 --> 00:06:08,451
I went to a new dentist.

116
00:06:08,534 --> 00:06:11,454
-She was okay.
-Really? How cool, Lily.

117
00:06:11,537 --> 00:06:13,623
-And I have two cavities.
-That's less cool.

118
00:06:17,168 --> 00:06:19,796
[Julia]
This is gonna be difficult, but worth it.

119
00:06:19,879 --> 00:06:23,424
So, here are some resources
to help you get started.

120
00:06:23,508 --> 00:06:27,095
I might've gone a little overboard.
I'm really excited. [chuckles]

121
00:06:27,178 --> 00:06:30,348
-So are we.
-Elsa has a stack like this at home.

122
00:06:30,640 --> 00:06:33,017
-Kindred nerd spirits.
-[both chuckle]

123
00:06:33,226 --> 00:06:37,105
Well, I think this first responders
training is such a great idea.

124
00:06:37,188 --> 00:06:39,190
I mean, law enforcement,
the medical community,

125
00:06:39,273 --> 00:06:41,150
they can't always recognize
the signs of autism.

126
00:06:41,234 --> 00:06:45,196
No, I get it. I would probably
be the same way if it wasn't for Sam.

127
00:06:45,279 --> 00:06:48,074
-He's been dealing with so much.
-Yeah. We've had a lot going on.

128
00:06:49,033 --> 00:06:51,744
-Been a tough time in our family.
-Yeah, really tough.

129
00:06:51,828 --> 00:06:55,623
Yeah. Anyways, that website is
for a group that does similar training,

130
00:06:55,706 --> 00:06:58,835
-so if you want to take a look--
-Okay. I'm going to come out and say it.

131
00:06:59,168 --> 00:07:00,002
[slaps hand]

132
00:07:00,086 --> 00:07:02,046
I cheated on Doug with a bartender.

133
00:07:02,463 --> 00:07:04,966
I'm just, I'm trying to be more honest.

134
00:07:05,383 --> 00:07:10,096
Okay. Well, like I was saying,
that nonprofit focuses on groups--

135
00:07:10,179 --> 00:07:12,682
But things are getting better.
Don't you think?

136
00:07:12,765 --> 00:07:15,810
Getting there.
It's good to be doing things together.

137
00:07:16,310 --> 00:07:18,146
You know, on the same team.

138
00:07:18,229 --> 00:07:19,439
I agree.

139
00:07:19,730 --> 00:07:23,526
I mean, I know I have a long way to go
before I'm forgiven.

140
00:07:24,444 --> 00:07:28,573
But I do feel like there's more intimacy.
I mean, not that kind of intimacy.

141
00:07:28,656 --> 00:07:30,450
It's not-- Not sex stuff.

142
00:07:31,659 --> 00:07:33,369
-No.
-But...

143
00:07:34,328 --> 00:07:37,832
I do want to be special to him
in that way.

144
00:07:40,209 --> 00:07:41,627
And I feel like we...

145
00:07:42,628 --> 00:07:43,754
I feel like we deserve that.

146
00:07:50,595 --> 00:07:54,307
Well, I have another client waiting. So...

147
00:07:54,390 --> 00:07:56,350
-Sorry.
-We could go on and on.

148
00:07:56,434 --> 00:07:58,436
-I bet.
-Yeah, it's a bunch to discuss.

149
00:07:58,519 --> 00:07:59,896
-Yeah.
-Okay. Um...

150
00:07:59,979 --> 00:08:01,647
J. SASAKI, Ph.D.

151
00:08:01,814 --> 00:08:03,483
All right, off you go.

152
00:08:03,608 --> 00:08:04,734
-Good to see ya.
-You too.

153
00:08:04,817 --> 00:08:06,486
Yeah, this was great. Thank you.

154
00:08:08,029 --> 00:08:10,031
Hey. There's no one here yet.

155
00:08:10,114 --> 00:08:12,116
-There will be.
-Okay. Thanks...

156
00:08:13,910 --> 00:08:15,495
So I'll see you at home.

157
00:08:15,745 --> 00:08:18,581
I'm gonna make a cake.
I just feel like making a cake, so...

158
00:08:18,664 --> 00:08:22,752
I'm actually... I'm gonna meet a friend
from Sam's peer group.

159
00:08:22,835 --> 00:08:27,965
She's a social worker, we're discussing
doing something similar at the hospital.

160
00:08:28,049 --> 00:08:29,550
Oh, wow, that's great.

161
00:08:30,218 --> 00:08:32,887
It's nice to see you
so passionate about this.

162
00:08:32,970 --> 00:08:35,056
It's nice to feel passionate
about something.

163
00:08:40,645 --> 00:08:41,896
T/F? THE FROG IS A VERTEBRATE

-[typing]

167
00:08:58,704 --> 00:09:01,374
STOP PROCRASTINATING.
STUDY FOR YOUR TEST.

168
00:09:01,457 --> 00:09:03,459
STOP YELLING AT ME!

169
00:09:04,085 --> 00:09:05,169
[sighs]

170
00:09:10,174 --> 00:09:12,552
So talk to me about your interview outfit.

171
00:09:12,927 --> 00:09:16,305
I don't know, pants and a shirt.

172
00:09:16,556 --> 00:09:18,432
What I always wear
when I'm not wearing this.

173
00:09:18,516 --> 00:09:20,393
Gag me with a spoon, brother.

174
00:09:20,476 --> 00:09:23,062
Yo, artists are supposed to be
eccentric lunatics.

175
00:09:23,145 --> 00:09:25,273
You've seen that 'stache on Salvador Dalí.

176
00:09:25,356 --> 00:09:26,691
You have to have flair.

177
00:09:26,774 --> 00:09:30,987
You gotta convey your oddness
through a dapper ensemble.

178
00:09:31,487 --> 00:09:33,155
How do you feel about a cloak?

179
00:09:33,239 --> 00:09:35,825
I wouldn't want them to mistake me
for a wizard.

180
00:09:35,908 --> 00:09:37,785
I don't see how that
would be a bad thing, but...

181
00:09:37,868 --> 00:09:41,706
I just want them to look at my portfolio,

182
00:09:41,789 --> 00:09:44,250
and then make their decision
based on that.

183
00:09:44,333 --> 00:09:45,960
When am I gonna see this bad boy?

184
00:09:46,043 --> 00:09:48,421
If you're referring to my portfolio,
right now.

185
00:09:48,504 --> 00:09:50,673
[massage chair trembling]

186
00:09:53,342 --> 00:09:54,176
Oh, no.

187
00:09:55,803 --> 00:09:57,305
Oh, no. Oh, no!

188
00:09:58,222 --> 00:10:00,099
[shouts] My portfolio, it's not in here.

189
00:10:00,182 --> 00:10:02,435
-It's not in here!
-Okay, deep breath.

190
00:10:04,437 --> 00:10:06,772
Deep breath.
Where was the last place you saw it?

191
00:10:06,856 --> 00:10:09,692
-I don't know! I don't know!
-Don't worry, homie.

192
00:10:09,775 --> 00:10:10,943
Give me your phone.

193
00:10:13,571 --> 00:10:15,281
Oh, you really should
password protect this.

194
00:10:15,364 --> 00:10:18,451
I'm gonna have to mess with you later.
You leave me no choice, but not now.

195
00:10:18,534 --> 00:10:20,661
Now, I am in hero mode.

196
00:10:22,330 --> 00:10:23,956
Zahid saves the day.

197
00:10:24,373 --> 00:10:26,000
[mobile phone buzzes] Yes.

198
00:10:26,500 --> 00:10:27,460
SAM

199
00:10:27,835 --> 00:10:30,379
-Hey, what's up?
-[Zahid] Hold for Samuel.

200
00:10:32,715 --> 00:10:35,468
Sam, hello? Are you there?

201
00:10:35,593 --> 00:10:39,347
I lost my portfolio and it's gone forever.
I'm such an idiot. Goodbye.

202
00:10:39,430 --> 00:10:40,723
Wait, Sam.

203
00:10:42,642 --> 00:10:44,101
Don't worry. We'll find it.

204
00:10:44,769 --> 00:10:46,771
[books clatter]

205
00:10:49,148 --> 00:10:50,066
Okay.

206
00:10:56,822 --> 00:10:57,740
[grunts]

207
00:11:03,704 --> 00:11:05,748
[pants]

208
00:11:08,751 --> 00:11:09,752
[grunts]

209
00:11:09,835 --> 00:11:11,712
Edison, where's the portfolio?

210
00:11:12,713 --> 00:11:13,756
Useless animal.

211
00:11:15,132 --> 00:11:18,052
Why have one washing machine
when you can have two?

212
00:11:18,636 --> 00:11:21,055
Double the clean clothes,
double the fresh looks.

213
00:11:22,932 --> 00:11:26,268
Don't mind her, she's with maintenance,
she's going to fix stuff.

214
00:11:26,811 --> 00:11:28,521
Let me show you something over here.

215
00:11:29,897 --> 00:11:32,566
Hey. Are you okay?

216
00:11:34,819 --> 00:11:38,406
Okay. You want me to read you
Ernest Shackleton's Wikipedia page?

217
00:11:41,909 --> 00:11:42,952
Ready?

218
00:11:44,078 --> 00:11:46,997
"Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton...

219
00:11:47,289 --> 00:11:48,666
was a polar explorer

220
00:11:49,041 --> 00:11:52,169
who led three British expeditions
to the Antarctic

221
00:11:52,586 --> 00:11:55,923
and one of the principal figures
of the period known as...

222
00:11:56,006 --> 00:11:59,760
the heroic age of Antarctic exploration.

223
00:12:00,469 --> 00:12:04,140
He was born on February 15th, 1874,

224
00:12:04,223 --> 00:12:08,227
in Kilkea, near Athy,
County Kildare, Ireland,

225
00:12:08,310 --> 00:12:12,148
about 46 miles, 74 kilometers,
from Dublin."

226
00:12:12,523 --> 00:12:15,151
He's buried on the island
of South Georgia.

227
00:12:15,735 --> 00:12:18,195
In a cemetery next to a wool factory.

228
00:12:18,654 --> 00:12:20,823
Oh! Wool.

229
00:12:22,950 --> 00:12:25,786
Sam, look, we can still fix this.

230
00:12:26,036 --> 00:12:27,997
We just have to find your portfolio.

231
00:12:28,330 --> 00:12:31,333
And we will scour the entire town
if we have to,

232
00:12:31,709 --> 00:12:33,377
starting with Techtropolis.

233
00:12:34,211 --> 00:12:35,129
Okay?

234
00:12:44,597 --> 00:12:46,807
TECHTROPOLIS

235
00:12:46,891 --> 00:12:47,975
You're all good here.

236
00:12:48,058 --> 00:12:49,769
Thing's connected to the thing.

237
00:12:54,774 --> 00:12:55,775
'Kay.

238
00:12:56,275 --> 00:12:58,486
-[people chattering]
-[music playing]

239
00:13:06,452 --> 00:13:07,703
-Hi.
-Hi.

240
00:13:07,787 --> 00:13:09,663
-Corner table, I like it.
-Yeah.

241
00:13:10,331 --> 00:13:11,957
-How are you?
-Good, good.

242
00:13:12,041 --> 00:13:15,669
Thanks for meeting me.
I'm really excited about this training.

243
00:13:15,795 --> 00:13:18,047
Yeah, me too. It's such a good idea.

244
00:13:18,130 --> 00:13:21,592
So many people are wrapped up in
their own stuff, they don't get involved.

245
00:13:21,675 --> 00:13:24,261
So... I'm impressed with you. [chuckles]

246
00:13:25,221 --> 00:13:27,723
You look nice, where are you headed?

247
00:13:28,724 --> 00:13:30,643
Just meeting a man.

248
00:13:30,726 --> 00:13:33,312
He's tall, reddish hair...

249
00:13:33,854 --> 00:13:35,272
You seen him? [chuckles]

250
00:13:35,481 --> 00:13:37,441
Can I get you two something to drink?

251
00:13:37,983 --> 00:13:40,694
I will have the Pinot Noir.

252
00:13:42,154 --> 00:13:44,198
I'll just have coffee, please.

253
00:13:44,782 --> 00:13:45,616
Thank you.

254
00:13:46,742 --> 00:13:50,120
You might have to cut me off
at two coffees. Sometimes I get crazy.

255
00:13:50,204 --> 00:13:52,331
I might have to use my defibrillator
on myself.

256
00:13:52,498 --> 00:13:53,958
[laughs]

257
00:13:55,709 --> 00:13:59,046
[chuckles and sighs]

258
00:14:10,266 --> 00:14:12,518
-It's not in the girls' bathroom.
-Not in the break room.

259
00:14:12,601 --> 00:14:13,769
Or the stock room.

260
00:14:13,853 --> 00:14:15,062
-Damn.
-I know.

261
00:14:15,145 --> 00:14:17,064
-But... shit.
-I know.

262
00:14:17,147 --> 00:14:19,316
We've searched this whole place,
it's not here.

263
00:14:19,400 --> 00:14:20,568
[mobile phone buzzes]

264
00:14:21,068 --> 00:14:22,570
Who's that? Someone find my portfolio?

265
00:14:22,653 --> 00:14:23,779
No, it's Evan.

266
00:14:23,863 --> 00:14:27,032
I'm supposed to be studying for
my biology test, he's busting my balls.

267
00:14:28,033 --> 00:14:29,034
That's it.

268
00:14:29,869 --> 00:14:31,579
I know where my portfolio is.

269
00:14:36,667 --> 00:14:39,086
I mean, this place is
really just a big box.

270
00:14:39,169 --> 00:14:41,171
Are you sure
this is the last place you saw it?

271
00:14:41,255 --> 00:14:43,841
Yes. I made a decision
to carry it with me everywhere,

272
00:14:43,924 --> 00:14:45,676
so I wouldn't lose it and I lost it.

273
00:14:45,759 --> 00:14:48,053
No dice.
Lost and found doesn't have it either.

274
00:14:48,137 --> 00:14:50,472
But, I did come up on this sweet amulet.

275
00:14:51,223 --> 00:14:54,560
-Is there anywhere else it could be?
-Here. It has to be here.

276
00:14:54,643 --> 00:14:59,148
I bet somebody found it while they were
blowing off steam and they stole it.

277
00:14:59,231 --> 00:15:01,108
A lot of artists get their work stolen.

278
00:15:01,191 --> 00:15:03,485
It's a common problem.
I watched a documentary about it.

279
00:15:03,569 --> 00:15:05,821
Relax, chipmunk. It's going to be okay.

280
00:15:06,030 --> 00:15:09,742
No, it's not! And why would you
even bring me to this loud place,

281
00:15:09,825 --> 00:15:13,162
with these hurtful balls,
and men in bike shorts?

282
00:15:13,495 --> 00:15:16,290
-What a dumb idea!
-Sam, don't blame Zahid.

283
00:15:16,457 --> 00:15:17,708
He's just trying to help.

284
00:15:17,791 --> 00:15:19,543
Well, maybe I should blame you too.

285
00:15:19,627 --> 00:15:22,046
Because if you
and Evan hadn't got me all worried,

286
00:15:22,129 --> 00:15:24,632
then I wouldn't have needed
to blow off steam in the first place.

287
00:15:24,715 --> 00:15:26,967
Well, maybe you lost your portfolio
on purpose,

288
00:15:27,051 --> 00:15:29,345
because deep down
you're afraid of going to college.

289
00:15:29,428 --> 00:15:32,848
So don't blame everybody else
for your own self-defeating behavior.

290
00:15:32,932 --> 00:15:35,059
It's not self-defeating behavior.

291
00:15:35,476 --> 00:15:37,144
Someone stole my portfolio,

292
00:15:37,227 --> 00:15:39,355
you promised to get it back
and you didn't!

293
00:15:39,438 --> 00:15:40,856
Okay, maybe we should leave.

294
00:15:40,940 --> 00:15:43,400
I think Bike Shorts over there
is eyeing my amulet.

295
00:15:43,484 --> 00:15:45,736
-[yells] Fine!
-Fine! [grunts]

296
00:15:46,070 --> 00:15:48,113
Okay, you know I'm your ride, right?

297
00:15:49,406 --> 00:15:50,574
Just move!

298
00:15:52,284 --> 00:15:54,328
[stammers] What's the matter?
Why slam the door?

299
00:15:54,411 --> 00:15:57,539
You mean, did we spend all day
looking for Sam's dumb portfolio,

300
00:15:57,623 --> 00:15:59,541
even though he lost it on purpose?

301
00:15:59,625 --> 00:16:01,502
-What?
-And I should be studying.

302
00:16:01,585 --> 00:16:04,463
-You lost your portfolio?
-No, it was stolen.

303
00:16:04,546 --> 00:16:05,673
You lost it.

304
00:16:05,756 --> 00:16:10,427
Guys, calm down. Maybe it's at school,
I'll call and see if they can find it.

305
00:16:10,511 --> 00:16:11,929
Let's get in the truck,
retrace your steps.

306
00:16:12,012 --> 00:16:13,681
Not helping. It's gone forever.

307
00:16:13,764 --> 00:16:16,266
-Honey. Sweetheart.
-It's not gone forever.

308
00:16:16,350 --> 00:16:17,893
-We will find it.
-It's gonna be found.

309
00:16:17,977 --> 00:16:18,811
[knocking at door]

310
00:16:22,231 --> 00:16:23,524
-Hey.
-Hi, Doug.

311
00:16:23,607 --> 00:16:27,403
How are you, Megan? What are you--
What are you doing here?

312
00:16:27,486 --> 00:16:30,823
I have something for you.
We have something for you.

313
00:16:30,906 --> 00:16:33,117
Hi. I'm Elsa.

314
00:16:33,200 --> 00:16:36,203
I'm Megan. And this is Amber.

315
00:16:36,286 --> 00:16:38,455
She's in Sam's peer group.

316
00:16:39,748 --> 00:16:41,166
Come in, come in.

317
00:16:42,001 --> 00:16:45,879
Oh. Megan is the social worker
[stammers] I was talking about.

318
00:16:46,839 --> 00:16:48,590
Oh, hi. [chuckles]

319
00:16:49,717 --> 00:16:53,178
I sit next to Sam even though I don't know
what he's talking about half the time.

320
00:16:53,262 --> 00:16:56,015
Yeah, he's a pretty deep thinker,
that's for sure.

321
00:16:56,098 --> 00:16:57,016
Yeah.

322
00:16:57,558 --> 00:17:02,438
Anyway, we have something... for you.

323
00:17:02,521 --> 00:17:04,690
[rustling]

324
00:17:06,316 --> 00:17:07,985
[gasps] You found it!

325
00:17:08,944 --> 00:17:11,030
-Sam, your portfolio!
-They found it.

326
00:17:11,113 --> 00:17:12,156
My portfolio.

327
00:17:13,741 --> 00:17:16,744
Hi, Amber. You look different
than you do in peer group.

328
00:17:16,827 --> 00:17:18,871
-I'm wearing a vest.
-Where'd you find it?

329
00:17:18,954 --> 00:17:20,956
-The vest?
-The portfolio.

330
00:17:21,749 --> 00:17:25,294
After Sam told the peer group
about all the challenges of art school,

331
00:17:25,377 --> 00:17:26,879
Amber got afraid for him

332
00:17:26,962 --> 00:17:30,466
and decided to steal his portfolio,
so that he couldn't go.

333
00:17:31,133 --> 00:17:33,761
[deep breath]
Amber has a lot of empathy. A lot.

334
00:17:33,844 --> 00:17:35,721
You said artists die penniless and alone.

335
00:17:35,804 --> 00:17:37,556
I don't want you to die
penniless and alone.

336
00:17:37,639 --> 00:17:40,851
She realizes now what she did was wrong.

337
00:17:40,934 --> 00:17:41,935
Right, Amber?

338
00:17:43,187 --> 00:17:45,773
-I told you someone stole it.
-Yeah, you were right.

339
00:17:49,777 --> 00:17:52,404
-Why don't you stay and have some cake?
-Yes.

340
00:17:52,488 --> 00:17:54,656
We really should be going.

341
00:17:55,574 --> 00:17:56,450
Okay, then.

342
00:17:56,533 --> 00:17:58,619
But, Mom... cake.

343
00:18:02,206 --> 00:18:03,165
Hey, Sam.

344
00:18:03,999 --> 00:18:07,753
I'm sorry I didn't believe you.
I guess you weren't being self-defeating.

345
00:18:07,836 --> 00:18:10,798
I think I just thought
that you were doing what I was doing.

346
00:18:11,340 --> 00:18:13,175
But you don't even have a portfolio.

347
00:18:13,592 --> 00:18:14,843
No, I mean, like...

348
00:18:16,011 --> 00:18:18,806
Clayton is really hard,
and I don't love it.

349
00:18:18,889 --> 00:18:21,225
So I think that I've been slacking off

350
00:18:21,308 --> 00:18:23,644
because I want to fail,
so I don't have to go there anymore.

351
00:18:25,020 --> 00:18:26,105
Well, that's dumb.

352
00:18:27,231 --> 00:18:28,065
I know.

353
00:18:28,148 --> 00:18:30,359
Do you want me to help you study
for biology?

354
00:18:30,442 --> 00:18:31,652
Really?

355
00:18:32,528 --> 00:18:33,737
Yeah, that'd be great.

356
00:18:33,821 --> 00:18:35,739
Okay, after dinner.

357
00:18:36,824 --> 00:18:39,326
-How are you with the Krebs cycle?
-Is that a joke?

358
00:18:39,785 --> 00:18:41,495
Ha. I love it.

359
00:18:46,250 --> 00:18:48,460
STUDYING WITH SAM 2NITE.
THX FOR BUGGING ME.

360
00:18:48,544 --> 00:18:49,461
DON'T DO IT AGAIN

361
00:18:49,670 --> 00:18:51,380
[text alerts whoosh]

362
00:18:52,214 --> 00:18:54,133
[Sam shouts]
What the heck happened to my room?

363
00:18:59,263 --> 00:19:01,265
[phone ringing]

364
00:19:01,348 --> 00:19:02,182
[Myles] Hey.

365
00:19:02,266 --> 00:19:03,559
-Myles?
-Yo.

366
00:19:03,642 --> 00:19:08,480
Oh, hi. So I've been thinking
about this a lot and...

367
00:19:08,647 --> 00:19:13,110
I know it's what people do,
get married to have kids, but...

368
00:19:14,236 --> 00:19:16,905
I just don't think I want to settle.

369
00:19:17,698 --> 00:19:19,783
I think we both deserve something...

370
00:19:21,618 --> 00:19:23,287
[sighs] ...special.

371
00:19:24,121 --> 00:19:26,874
-Cool, cool. I'm in Africa.
-[Julia] What?

372
00:19:26,957 --> 00:19:29,877
I took a job with Doctors without Borders.
I'm gonna be here for two years.

373
00:19:30,210 --> 00:19:31,962
Were you going to tell me?

374
00:19:32,588 --> 00:19:34,089
I'm telling you now.

375
00:19:35,632 --> 00:19:39,178
Okay. Well, I definitely
made the right decision.

376
00:19:39,261 --> 00:19:43,432
Oh, broken clavicle. Nice.
Gotta motor. Text me when the kid's born.

377
00:19:50,647 --> 00:19:52,441
Yep. Daddy's a douchebag.

378
00:19:56,695 --> 00:19:58,488
Can you believe we're sitting here?

379
00:19:59,323 --> 00:20:00,782
College is a big deal.

380
00:20:00,866 --> 00:20:02,451
QUIET
INTERVIEWS IN PROGRESS

381
00:20:02,534 --> 00:20:05,829
It's not college.
It's an interview. It's very different.

382
00:20:06,538 --> 00:20:08,707
I am so proud of you, Sam.

383
00:20:10,125 --> 00:20:12,669
When I get up
and talk about you in group...

384
00:20:12,753 --> 00:20:16,173
Well, it gives parents
with younger children hope

385
00:20:16,256 --> 00:20:18,133
for their future. You're...

386
00:20:18,467 --> 00:20:21,053
You're a real role model. And RISD!

387
00:20:22,221 --> 00:20:24,306
RISD is huge.

388
00:20:27,726 --> 00:20:29,978
Sam, honey, how you feeling?

389
00:20:33,815 --> 00:20:34,691
Sam?

390
00:20:34,816 --> 00:20:35,901
EXIT

391
00:20:37,945 --> 00:20:41,615
I know you know this, but it's normal
to be nervous around transitions.

392
00:20:42,407 --> 00:20:46,119
I think maybe the idea of moving far away
from home is a little...

393
00:20:46,870 --> 00:20:48,247
-scary.
-You know what?

394
00:20:48,330 --> 00:20:51,625
There's no rule that says
that you have to move far away.

395
00:20:51,792 --> 00:20:54,044
I mean, I did and it massively sucked.

396
00:20:54,127 --> 00:20:56,380
There are plenty of great schools
around here.

397
00:20:56,463 --> 00:20:57,798
In fact...

398
00:21:00,968 --> 00:21:02,052
Denton University,

399
00:21:02,135 --> 00:21:05,472
very close to home and it has
a scientific illustration program.

400
00:21:06,932 --> 00:21:09,893
-Science and art, together?
-Yeah.

401
00:21:10,018 --> 00:21:12,104
And you wouldn't have to move far away.

402
00:21:13,230 --> 00:21:14,523
FUTURE JOB INFORMATION

403
00:21:15,732 --> 00:21:16,733
Ms. Whitaker?

404
00:21:17,734 --> 00:21:21,154
They have a marine life
illustration class. Did you know?

405
00:21:21,238 --> 00:21:22,114
I didn't.

406
00:21:22,990 --> 00:21:26,660
One thing I've learned in this job,
sometimes you find the perfect school...

407
00:21:27,202 --> 00:21:28,954
and sometimes it finds you.

408
00:21:33,750 --> 00:21:35,585
-[keys jangling]
-[sighs]

409
00:21:36,336 --> 00:21:37,462
What are you doing?

410
00:21:37,546 --> 00:21:39,881
Nothing. It's silly.

411
00:21:41,550 --> 00:21:44,219
Fine. I'm making a website.

412
00:21:45,137 --> 00:21:48,181
-You can't even turn on the TV.
-Yes, I can.

413
00:21:48,265 --> 00:21:50,809
If somebody hands me the correct remote.

414
00:21:51,727 --> 00:21:52,936
Anyway, it's just...

415
00:21:53,020 --> 00:21:57,107
It's been inspiring for me to see you
so excited about these trainings,

416
00:21:57,190 --> 00:22:01,236
and I know we're doing it together, but
it still feels more like your thing. So...

417
00:22:01,445 --> 00:22:05,240
I was thinking maybe I could find
something that was more...

418
00:22:05,324 --> 00:22:06,158
me.

419
00:22:07,326 --> 00:22:09,244
That's cool. So, what you got?

420
00:22:09,494 --> 00:22:13,623
Okay, so a while ago,
a mom came into the autism center

421
00:22:13,707 --> 00:22:15,834
and asked me
if I would cut her son's hair.

422
00:22:15,917 --> 00:22:18,253
And I did. And I loved it.

423
00:22:18,337 --> 00:22:21,923
I was just thinking, maybe I could make it
more of a regular thing.

424
00:22:22,799 --> 00:22:25,886
So I'm... I'm building a website.
I know it's dumb.

425
00:22:25,969 --> 00:22:29,431
No, I think that's good.
I think you'll be great at that.

426
00:22:29,514 --> 00:22:31,183
-Yeah?
-I think it's a good idea.

427
00:22:31,266 --> 00:22:33,643
I haven't chopped
any child's ear off yet.

428
00:22:33,727 --> 00:22:34,978
Well, that's a start.

429
00:22:35,062 --> 00:22:39,358
Yeah. Now, I'm trying to come up
with a name for my business.

430
00:22:39,441 --> 00:22:41,526
Okay, so... [clears throat]

431
00:22:41,943 --> 00:22:43,570
What do you think of...

432
00:22:43,653 --> 00:22:45,155
"Hair Today...

433
00:22:46,114 --> 00:22:46,948
Gone Tomorrow."

434
00:22:47,741 --> 00:22:48,909
-That's terrible.
-Okay.

435
00:22:48,992 --> 00:22:51,078
I don't think that's very good.
I think, uh...

436
00:22:51,161 --> 00:22:51,995
I got it.

437
00:22:52,079 --> 00:22:55,290
What about something like,
"Don't Get Snippy"?

438
00:22:55,374 --> 00:22:57,334
-Yeah, that's not good.
-[both laugh]

439
00:22:57,417 --> 00:22:59,419
-It's awful.
-That's worse than yours.

440
00:22:59,503 --> 00:23:04,049
-What else? You have other choices?
-How about "Hair... Spec-trim"?

441
00:23:04,758 --> 00:23:06,009
That's not bad, actually.

442
00:23:06,093 --> 00:23:08,387
-Yes, it is bad.
-It's very bad.

443
00:23:08,470 --> 00:23:11,473
-What about... "Hair You Go"?
-[Elsa laughs]

444
00:23:11,723 --> 00:23:13,642
-Instead of "here you go," it's...
-No!

445
00:23:13,725 --> 00:23:16,061
-No? I thought that was good.
-No, you did not.

446
00:23:16,144 --> 00:23:18,522
No, I didn't. I'm sure you're gonna
come up with a good name.

447
00:23:18,605 --> 00:23:19,606
I think it's a good idea.

448
00:23:22,025 --> 00:23:23,360
Hey, you know...

449
00:23:24,611 --> 00:23:26,655
your friend who came by, Megan...

450
00:23:26,905 --> 00:23:28,031
she seemed really nice.

451
00:23:28,115 --> 00:23:29,157
Yeah.

452
00:23:29,282 --> 00:23:32,202
Ahh! Her daughter is cute as a button.

453
00:23:32,536 --> 00:23:35,497
Yeah, she... is obsessed with ambulances,

454
00:23:35,580 --> 00:23:38,333
so I gave her a tour and... she loved it.

455
00:23:39,543 --> 00:23:41,670
-Anyway, I...
-Wow, that's really sweet.

I'm going to take a shower.

you know, maybe we could...

or something like that?

459
00:23:55,725 --> 00:23:57,310
-Yeah.
-Maybe.
