00:00:14,597 --> 00:00:16,433
[gasps, pants]

2
00:00:16,891 --> 00:00:18,309
Nellie's in the Red Room.

3
00:00:19,936 --> 00:00:20,770
Shirl.

4
00:00:23,189 --> 00:00:24,232
[Kevin grunts]

5
00:00:25,275 --> 00:00:26,359
What did you say?

6
00:00:31,197 --> 00:00:32,407
[sighs]

7
00:01:50,276 --> 00:01:51,569
[Max] Grandma's dead.

8
00:01:51,986 --> 00:01:53,363
I know Grandma's dead.

9
00:01:54,197 --> 00:01:57,909
But she still comes to my room at night
and she still sits on my bed,

10
00:01:57,992 --> 00:02:00,286
even though Mommy and Daddy
said she wouldn't.

11
00:02:01,496 --> 00:02:04,457
And I told her not to,
but she was there again last night.

12
00:02:04,833 --> 00:02:06,209
And last night was bad.

13
00:02:06,501 --> 00:02:07,710
She looked different.

14
00:02:08,044 --> 00:02:09,337
Her fingers were purple,

15
00:02:09,629 --> 00:02:12,549
she didn't have teeth,
and she did not have hair.

16
00:02:13,216 --> 00:02:16,219
I don't want to see her again,
especially like that.

17
00:02:17,178 --> 00:02:19,389
So, I'm not going to look at her tomorrow,

18
00:02:19,472 --> 00:02:22,142
and I don't want to see her
in the open castle.

19
00:02:23,226 --> 00:02:24,561
The open casket.

20
00:02:25,812 --> 00:02:27,063
I understand, Max.

21
00:02:29,983 --> 00:02:32,360
I'm guessing your parents
have talked to you

22
00:02:32,443 --> 00:02:34,237
about why you might be having
these dreams.

23
00:02:34,320 --> 00:02:37,115
-They're not dreams.
-And I'm guessing you're a smart boy.

24
00:02:37,407 --> 00:02:39,242
You're so smart, you probably know

25
00:02:39,325 --> 00:02:41,703
that your grandmother
wore a wig, is that right?

26
00:02:42,287 --> 00:02:44,789
You probably saw her in the hospital

27
00:02:44,914 --> 00:02:46,833
a few times when she wasn't
wearing it.

28
00:02:46,916 --> 00:02:47,917
Yeah.

29
00:02:48,001 --> 00:02:49,961
And you probably also know
she had fake teeth.

30
00:02:50,044 --> 00:02:53,381
Maybe she took them out once to show you,
made you laugh.

31
00:02:54,424 --> 00:02:56,384
The thing about an open casket,

32
00:02:56,467 --> 00:02:58,428
and I know it sounds scary,

33
00:02:58,511 --> 00:03:04,184
is that it's a great chance
to take all of those pictures in your head

34
00:03:04,267 --> 00:03:08,021
of Grandma in the hospital,
or Grandma without her hair or teeth,

35
00:03:08,104 --> 00:03:10,690
or anything else in your imagination...

36
00:03:11,107 --> 00:03:16,321
and... cover it all up
with a better... picture.

37
00:03:16,529 --> 00:03:18,281
-Better picture?
-That's right.

38
00:03:18,364 --> 00:03:23,119
Before she's... ever even in the casket,
I'm going to fix her.

39
00:03:23,369 --> 00:03:24,537
That's what I do.

40
00:03:26,206 --> 00:03:27,081
How?

41
00:03:29,834 --> 00:03:33,254
First, we give her a bath...

42
00:03:33,338 --> 00:03:35,465
make sure she's clean and soft.

43
00:03:37,508 --> 00:03:40,678
Then we put special chemicals in
so she stays fixed forever.

44
00:03:41,262 --> 00:03:44,807
Then... we put her in her favorite clothes.

45
00:03:45,600 --> 00:03:47,769
And finally, I take...

46
00:03:47,936 --> 00:03:49,854
extra special care

47
00:03:49,938 --> 00:03:52,649
to make sure she looks
just like she's supposed to.

48
00:03:53,274 --> 00:03:57,654
So, when I'm done...
she will look just like she always did,

49
00:03:57,737 --> 00:03:59,155
just like you remember her.

50
00:04:00,114 --> 00:04:01,824
Just like she is supposed to.

51
00:04:13,878 --> 00:04:15,713
-Is that Hill House?
-No.

52
00:04:16,339 --> 00:04:17,340
Come here, take a look.

53
00:04:21,135 --> 00:04:23,930
This... is our forever house.

54
00:04:25,014 --> 00:04:26,224
You made this?

55
00:04:26,557 --> 00:04:27,642
I designed it, yeah.

56
00:04:27,892 --> 00:04:29,978
-I design them and--
-Daddy builds them.

57
00:04:30,353 --> 00:04:32,855
It... just looks like a lot of lines.

58
00:04:33,481 --> 00:04:35,024
Hmm. That's true.

59
00:04:36,067 --> 00:04:37,402
But when I look at it...

60
00:04:37,860 --> 00:04:40,863
I see a family
running to a dinner table...

61
00:04:41,322 --> 00:04:42,949
from all three directions.

62
00:04:43,992 --> 00:04:46,494
This dining room is the heart
of the house.

63
00:04:47,078 --> 00:04:48,871
Everything flows in and out, see?

64
00:04:49,163 --> 00:04:51,749
Every house needs a heart
and this is ours,

65
00:04:51,833 --> 00:04:54,127
because that's where we spend
the most time together.

66
00:04:54,585 --> 00:04:56,879
You know, a house is like a person's body.

67
00:04:57,255 --> 00:04:59,215
The walls are like bones...

68
00:04:59,757 --> 00:05:02,677
the pipes are veins,
it needs to breathe,

69
00:05:02,760 --> 00:05:04,554
it needs light and flow,

70
00:05:04,929 --> 00:05:08,516
and it all works together to keep us safe
and healthy inside.

71
00:05:09,851 --> 00:05:11,519
I don't see any of that.

72
00:05:11,728 --> 00:05:13,062
[chuckles] It's okay.

73
00:05:13,146 --> 00:05:16,566
When you're little, you learn how
to see things that aren't there.

74
00:05:16,899 --> 00:05:19,569
And when you grow up,
you learn how to make them real.

75
00:05:19,777 --> 00:05:20,778
Which is my room?

76
00:05:21,571 --> 00:05:23,781
Mm. That's where you'll be.

77
00:05:24,615 --> 00:05:27,160
But on the second floor,
this is ground floor.

78
00:05:27,243 --> 00:05:29,287
When we finish fixing up this house and--

79
00:05:29,370 --> 00:05:30,955
Sell it for a lot of money.

80
00:05:32,123 --> 00:05:34,083
You don't miss a thing. Yes.

81
00:05:34,250 --> 00:05:36,502
Then we're going to build
the forever house,

82
00:05:36,586 --> 00:05:37,920
and we won't have to move,

83
00:05:38,004 --> 00:05:38,880
ever again.

84
00:05:41,299 --> 00:05:44,177
[Nellie] Shirley. Shirley.

85
00:05:45,094 --> 00:05:46,012
Where'd you go?

86
00:05:46,095 --> 00:05:48,264
Nellie, I told you,
I'm too old for tea parties.

87
00:05:48,348 --> 00:05:50,933
Mommy, will you please have
a tea party with me?

88
00:05:51,517 --> 00:05:53,269
Everyone keeps saying no.

89
00:05:53,436 --> 00:05:55,897
Sweetheart, I'd love to have
a tea party with you,

90
00:05:56,022 --> 00:05:58,024
but I have to finish working,
I'm afraid.

91
00:06:01,110 --> 00:06:04,238
-How about we play outside instead?
-[Nellie] I guess.

92
00:06:04,614 --> 00:06:06,366
How about a tea party outside?

93
00:06:06,449 --> 00:06:07,784
You can play outside until dinner,

94
00:06:07,867 --> 00:06:10,870
-but when I flash the porch light twice...
-Time to come home.

95
00:06:11,371 --> 00:06:13,915
That's the rule.
Nellie, let me hear you say it.

96
00:06:14,248 --> 00:06:16,376
Porch light means it's time
to come home.

97
00:06:16,709 --> 00:06:18,044
'Kay. Go have fun.

98
00:06:20,004 --> 00:06:21,172
[shutter clicks]

99
00:06:24,675 --> 00:06:28,596
Did you know that princesses and queens
and kings had tea parties?

100
00:06:29,097 --> 00:06:31,682
It sounds like a kid thing,
but it isn't.

101
00:06:32,141 --> 00:06:35,436
It's very grown-up and uh-fisticated.

102
00:06:35,520 --> 00:06:36,938
"Sophisticated."

103
00:06:37,313 --> 00:06:38,356
Ask Theo.

104
00:06:38,689 --> 00:06:40,316
Maybe she'll have one with you.

105
00:06:40,400 --> 00:06:42,360
Theo!

106
00:06:44,737 --> 00:06:46,989
Will you have a tea party with me?
Please?

107
00:06:47,073 --> 00:06:48,699
-No.
-Why?

108
00:06:55,123 --> 00:06:56,249
[shutter clicks]

109
00:07:01,504 --> 00:07:03,423
-You good, Luke?
-Uh-huh.

110
00:07:03,589 --> 00:07:05,925
Don't forget the rule. Lights flash...

111
00:07:06,175 --> 00:07:07,427
Time to come home.

112
00:07:12,306 --> 00:07:14,016
[growls, mimics explosion]

113
00:07:21,816 --> 00:07:24,360
[Hugh] I appreciate your advice.
I mean, I...

114
00:07:24,444 --> 00:07:26,821
I know you've worked
this house for so long.

115
00:07:27,530 --> 00:07:28,614
[chuckles]

116
00:07:31,826 --> 00:07:33,828
-You stay close, now.
-[Shirley] Okay.

117
00:07:35,204 --> 00:07:38,082
Oh. Uh, another question.

118
00:07:38,583 --> 00:07:40,668
That master key you had
didn't work.

119
00:07:41,002 --> 00:07:44,213
You have any other ideas about
that red door upstairs?

120
00:07:44,630 --> 00:07:47,758
Um... afraid not.
Not, not for that one.

121
00:08:21,209 --> 00:08:22,502
[shutter clicks]

122
00:08:28,007 --> 00:08:30,009
[distinct quavering]

123
00:08:46,025 --> 00:08:48,027
[door creaks open]

124
00:08:57,954 --> 00:08:59,747
-[kittens quavering]
-Oh.

125
00:09:00,540 --> 00:09:01,374
Hi.

126
00:09:03,125 --> 00:09:04,168
Where's your mommy?

127
00:09:05,670 --> 00:09:06,587
Hey.

128
00:09:07,630 --> 00:09:09,257
Hey, how'd you get in here, huh?

129
00:09:10,132 --> 00:09:11,300
Where's your mommy cat?

130
00:09:12,093 --> 00:09:15,012
She couldn't be far.
She needs to feed you.

131
00:09:16,597 --> 00:09:19,600
But you're just the cutest little thing.
[shutter clicks]

132
00:09:40,621 --> 00:09:41,747
[shutter clicks, screams]

133
00:09:44,917 --> 00:09:46,502
[exhales] Well, look at that.

134
00:09:47,712 --> 00:09:49,171
You think it's empty?

135
00:09:49,255 --> 00:09:51,424
We'd have seen some.
Probably dead.

136
00:09:51,507 --> 00:09:53,467
Come here, Shirley, you gotta see this.

137
00:09:55,928 --> 00:09:57,805
It's okay.

138
00:10:01,601 --> 00:10:02,768
It's a wasp nest.

139
00:10:04,228 --> 00:10:06,856
-Probably an old one.
-Uh, very old.

140
00:10:07,273 --> 00:10:10,234
You see, sometimes they build their nest
around things.

141
00:10:10,443 --> 00:10:12,570
I've seen a nest
built around a wind chime.

142
00:10:12,653 --> 00:10:13,904
It looked so cool.

143
00:10:15,323 --> 00:10:16,657
[grunts] Ah, there it is.

144
00:10:18,242 --> 00:10:20,202
Haven't seen one like this, though.

145
00:10:21,662 --> 00:10:23,372
I don't blame you for screaming.

146
00:10:23,831 --> 00:10:26,542
There. Built it around this.

147
00:10:26,917 --> 00:10:27,877
You know what that is?

148
00:10:28,628 --> 00:10:30,129
-A mask?
-[man] Yup.

149
00:10:30,212 --> 00:10:31,255
A Halloween mask.

150
00:10:31,714 --> 00:10:34,884
-Old one.
-You see? Nothing scary at all.

151
00:10:36,010 --> 00:10:37,678
You're lucky those wasps are long gone.

152
00:10:37,762 --> 00:10:39,930
You might have something
to really scream about.

153
00:10:40,014 --> 00:10:41,098
[chuckles]

154
00:10:42,683 --> 00:10:44,560
These little kittens don't have a mommy.

155
00:10:45,394 --> 00:10:48,105
You don't know that.
She could be out there somewhere.

156
00:10:48,522 --> 00:10:49,857
[man] Odd her leaving them alone.

157
00:10:50,650 --> 00:10:54,195
-Especially close to dark like this.
-Well, we can't just leave them here.

158
00:10:54,945 --> 00:10:55,946
The dogs.

159
00:10:56,781 --> 00:10:58,616
-Dogs?
-I don't know, Shirl.

160
00:10:58,699 --> 00:10:59,533
Please.

161
00:11:00,034 --> 00:11:04,038
Mr. Dudley, have you ever seen those dogs?
Do you think they'd go after kittens?

162
00:11:04,538 --> 00:11:06,916
-No dogs on the property.
-Well, sure there are.

163
00:11:06,999 --> 00:11:08,542
The kids have been hearing
them at night.

164
00:11:08,626 --> 00:11:10,628
They've heard them every night
since we got here.

165
00:11:10,711 --> 00:11:11,587
I couldn't say.

166
00:11:11,921 --> 00:11:14,715
The missus and I, we don't stay
on the property after dark.

167
00:11:15,341 --> 00:11:16,175
But...

168
00:11:17,009 --> 00:11:17,843
no.

169
00:11:18,469 --> 00:11:19,929
I've never seen dogs.

170
00:11:20,221 --> 00:11:21,389
[Shirley] Please, Daddy?

171
00:11:21,847 --> 00:11:22,765
Please?

172
00:11:25,559 --> 00:11:28,437
Come on, Mom.
I told you I wanted to be Daredevil.

173
00:11:28,521 --> 00:11:31,315
That's why I got you that,
so you can decorate it however you want.

174
00:11:31,399 --> 00:11:34,360
I don't want to decorate.
I just want to be Daredevil.

175
00:11:34,443 --> 00:11:36,028
It's more fun when you get to be creative

176
00:11:36,112 --> 00:11:37,988
instead of just buying
what other kids buys.

177
00:11:38,072 --> 00:11:40,408
Mom, you're killing me.

178
00:11:40,908 --> 00:11:41,867
Killing me, Mom.

179
00:11:41,951 --> 00:11:45,162
Can't you just decorate that
to look like Devil Man?

180
00:11:45,246 --> 00:11:47,456
-[whispering] Devil Man.
-Or... whoever?

181
00:11:47,540 --> 00:11:49,542
It means more when you make it yourself.

182
00:11:49,625 --> 00:11:50,543
Hey, guys.

183
00:11:50,626 --> 00:11:52,211
It's almost Halloween.

184
00:11:52,294 --> 00:11:54,255
I need a costume I can wear
to Austin's party,

185
00:11:54,338 --> 00:11:55,965
not some craft project.

186
00:11:56,048 --> 00:11:56,882
Try it.

187
00:11:56,966 --> 00:11:59,343
Austin said if our masks
don't look good enough

188
00:11:59,427 --> 00:12:00,636
the ghosts will know it's us

189
00:12:00,720 --> 00:12:02,471
-and they'll come after me.
-Jayden.

190
00:12:02,555 --> 00:12:04,557
There's no such thing as ghosts
and you know it.

191
00:12:04,640 --> 00:12:06,434
Go upstairs. We're working in here.

192
00:12:07,059 --> 00:12:09,103
-Watch out for the...
-[object falls]

193
00:12:10,271 --> 00:12:11,981
Forever House.

194
00:12:12,064 --> 00:12:13,065
So that went well.

195
00:12:13,691 --> 00:12:14,734
Like a charm.

196
00:12:16,318 --> 00:12:18,696
-How's Tyson?
-[Kevin] He's worried.

197
00:12:18,904 --> 00:12:20,948
We went over it all, and again...

198
00:12:21,031 --> 00:12:23,576
-We're in the black, though?
-We are, but barely.

199
00:12:23,659 --> 00:12:26,203
And Tyson's saying it again
just like last quarter.

200
00:12:26,704 --> 00:12:29,707
-We're in the black.
-We have to do better.

201
00:12:30,458 --> 00:12:33,377
Which means you can't keep cutting prices
when you feel like it.

202
00:12:33,461 --> 00:12:35,629
-Kevin.
-I'm sorry, you handle the funerals,

203
00:12:35,713 --> 00:12:38,716
-I handle the books. That was the deal.
-We're doing more than well enough

204
00:12:38,799 --> 00:12:41,177
to give a little relief
to families who need it the most.

205
00:12:41,260 --> 00:12:43,179
It's not relief, Shirl, it's charity.

206
00:12:43,721 --> 00:12:47,558
You're giving stuff away at cost,
below cost.

207
00:12:47,641 --> 00:12:49,643
-Only for special cases.
-More than half.

208
00:12:49,727 --> 00:12:50,686
No way.

209
00:12:50,770 --> 00:12:54,064
More than half of our intakes last quarter
were special cases.

210
00:12:54,148 --> 00:12:56,942
If it's more than half, it's not special,
it's normal.

211
00:12:57,693 --> 00:12:59,528
I have the whole thing in here.
I'll show you.

212
00:12:59,612 --> 00:13:02,615
-Bullshit, "more than half."
-Here, I will show you.

213
00:13:03,574 --> 00:13:04,575
Hello.

214
00:13:05,159 --> 00:13:06,577
Uh, right back here.

215
00:13:06,660 --> 00:13:08,579
-Sorry, we didn't hear the door.
-It's okay.

216
00:13:09,747 --> 00:13:12,291
I just wanted to drop these off,
like we discussed.

217
00:13:12,374 --> 00:13:15,544
There's some jewelry in here,
some pictures of Mom, like you asked.

218
00:13:16,003 --> 00:13:19,131
I couldn't decide so
I just put a bunch in. [chuckles softly]

219
00:13:25,221 --> 00:13:26,847
Thank you for dropping these by.

220
00:13:26,931 --> 00:13:28,808
They'll be really helpful.

221
00:13:31,185 --> 00:13:32,978
Is Max feeling better about tomorrow?

222
00:13:33,437 --> 00:13:34,355
A little.

223
00:13:34,480 --> 00:13:35,940
Your wife definitely helped,

224
00:13:36,023 --> 00:13:37,566
but he's still nervous.

225
00:13:37,650 --> 00:13:38,692
[Kevin] I can tell.

226
00:13:59,088 --> 00:13:59,922
[sighs]

227
00:14:01,674 --> 00:14:03,259
Did you ever connect with Nell?

228
00:14:04,593 --> 00:14:08,848
No, but Steve checked in with Luke.
He's fine in rehab.

229
00:14:08,931 --> 00:14:09,932
Ugh.

230
00:14:10,015 --> 00:14:12,768
-How many is this for him?
-I don't know. I lost track.

231
00:14:13,769 --> 00:14:15,646
You want me to bring this downstairs?

232
00:14:16,230 --> 00:14:17,439
Yes, please.

233
00:14:17,690 --> 00:14:20,150
[exhales]
I hate going downstairs.

234
00:14:26,490 --> 00:14:29,118
-On the phone you said he had insurance.
-Right.

235
00:14:29,660 --> 00:14:31,787
We thought so. He told us so.

236
00:14:32,538 --> 00:14:36,083
-This morning we tried to get the info--
-It had lapsed a few months back.

237
00:14:36,166 --> 00:14:37,585
-He didn't--
-He just didn't tell us.

238
00:14:37,668 --> 00:14:40,296
It happens all the time, I'm afraid,
especially with first-timers.

239
00:14:40,588 --> 00:14:43,465
We can still do this.
We're going to split the cost.

240
00:14:43,549 --> 00:14:44,758
He needs to be here.

241
00:14:45,301 --> 00:14:46,302
[woman] It's fine.

242
00:14:46,385 --> 00:14:49,138
Without an insurance policy,
it's $6,000 a month,

243
00:14:49,221 --> 00:14:51,849
and we do recommend
a four-to-six month commitment.

244
00:14:53,100 --> 00:14:56,395
-I'm sorry, did you say $6,000?
-[woman] A month.

245
00:14:56,979 --> 00:14:57,855
That's right.

246
00:15:01,692 --> 00:15:05,070
And obviously if he had insurance
it would be in...

247
00:15:06,113 --> 00:15:08,157
the ballpark of what we discussed
on the phone.

248
00:15:08,240 --> 00:15:11,994
Yes... but if his policy is lapsed...

249
00:15:14,663 --> 00:15:15,497
I know.

250
00:15:17,541 --> 00:15:19,543
The first month for sure,

251
00:15:19,627 --> 00:15:22,254
and I can come back in two weeks...

252
00:15:22,630 --> 00:15:25,299
with some more, if I move
some things around.

253
00:15:25,591 --> 00:15:28,052
That's fine.
We can see how the first month goes.

254
00:15:30,554 --> 00:15:31,513
[sighs]

255
00:15:32,514 --> 00:15:33,891
[Steven] I'm sorry, Shirl. I--

256
00:15:33,974 --> 00:15:35,392
-It's fine.
-I can still do--

257
00:15:35,476 --> 00:15:37,728
You can pay me back when
you're a famous writer.

258
00:15:37,853 --> 00:15:40,147
[chuckles] You might not
wanna hold your breath.

259
00:15:40,773 --> 00:15:43,025
Apparently historical fiction
is out of vogue.

260
00:15:47,029 --> 00:15:49,740
-You're all set.
-Yeah.

261
00:15:50,991 --> 00:15:52,701
-What do I, uh...
-We're all set.

262
00:15:53,118 --> 00:15:54,536
I'm gonna need a UA.

263
00:15:55,704 --> 00:15:56,580
What?

264
00:15:57,039 --> 00:15:58,165
Urine Analysis.

265
00:15:58,499 --> 00:15:59,667
First time, huh?

266
00:15:59,750 --> 00:16:02,544
Did you know they have horseback riding?
They have horseback riding.

267
00:16:03,504 --> 00:16:04,672
A UA, right.

268
00:16:05,214 --> 00:16:06,548
What if there's still...

269
00:16:06,757 --> 00:16:08,258
It's okay if you're not clean.

270
00:16:08,592 --> 00:16:10,302
We just need to know how dirty.

271
00:16:11,929 --> 00:16:12,763
All right.

272
00:16:16,475 --> 00:16:18,268
Aw, shit. Wish me luck.

273
00:16:27,236 --> 00:16:29,321
We love you so much.

274
00:16:31,115 --> 00:16:32,783
[sighs]

275
00:16:33,826 --> 00:16:34,952
You can do this.

276
00:16:36,078 --> 00:16:36,912
Thanks.

277
00:16:41,000 --> 00:16:42,251
Anything you need.

278
00:16:47,715 --> 00:16:48,632
You got this.

279
00:16:49,508 --> 00:16:50,342
Yeah.

280
00:16:54,304 --> 00:16:55,264
They have horses.

281
00:17:02,104 --> 00:17:02,980
He can do it.

282
00:17:03,856 --> 00:17:05,149
[Shirley] He's gonna do it.

283
00:17:16,618 --> 00:17:18,912
KEVIN HARRIS

284
00:17:27,046 --> 00:17:28,922
I kind of like the Captain "Lame" mask.

285
00:17:29,298 --> 00:17:30,299
It's all yours.

286
00:17:31,800 --> 00:17:34,053
-Where'd you get those, Allie?
-At the mall.

287
00:17:34,678 --> 00:17:37,973
[clears throat] Practically begged me.
She has to be like her cool Aunt Theo.

288
00:17:38,057 --> 00:17:39,308
I did not!

289
00:17:40,184 --> 00:17:42,186
Nope, you're finishing
the Brussels sprouts.

290
00:17:42,269 --> 00:17:43,896
You're on fire today, Mom.

291
00:17:43,979 --> 00:17:45,397
Watch it, Captain Lame.

292
00:17:45,481 --> 00:17:46,940
Both of you. They're delicious.

293
00:17:47,024 --> 00:17:48,650
They smell like cat piss.

294
00:17:49,151 --> 00:17:50,903
-Jayden.
-[Kevin] Watch your tone.

295
00:17:51,403 --> 00:17:53,697
Unless you want to spend Halloween
as Captain Grounded.

296
00:17:53,781 --> 00:17:54,740
[whispers] Great.

297
00:17:57,701 --> 00:17:59,369
I don't know, it was weird.

298
00:17:59,703 --> 00:18:02,498
Solo account, his name's on the checkbook.

299
00:18:02,623 --> 00:18:04,374
-So?
-So we only have joint accounts.

300
00:18:04,458 --> 00:18:05,793
I don't know that account.

301
00:18:05,876 --> 00:18:07,377
It was just in his briefcase.

302
00:18:07,503 --> 00:18:10,589
-You're going through his briefcase?
-Looking at quarterlies, not like...

303
00:18:10,714 --> 00:18:12,549
[inhales deeply] It was just there.

304
00:18:13,133 --> 00:18:14,009
It surprised me.

305
00:18:14,968 --> 00:18:15,928
Ask him.

306
00:18:16,428 --> 00:18:18,722
-I'm sure it's nothing.
-I don't want to seem like...

307
00:18:18,806 --> 00:18:21,308
I don't know. It's probably nothing.
It's just...

308
00:18:21,391 --> 00:18:22,851
[stammers] weird.

309
00:18:23,102 --> 00:18:26,271
Well, be sure to let your imagination
get the best of you.

310
00:18:26,355 --> 00:18:27,481
That's the first step.

311
00:18:27,564 --> 00:18:30,484
Imagine the worst thing possible,
assume it's true, and go from there.

312
00:18:30,567 --> 00:18:32,528
Can I have cookies and milk
for dessert?

313
00:18:33,612 --> 00:18:35,155
Did you eat all of your food?

314
00:18:35,405 --> 00:18:36,240
Yes.

315
00:18:47,626 --> 00:18:48,961
[kittens quavering]

316
00:18:50,170 --> 00:18:52,589
There's five of them
like there's five of us.

317
00:18:52,923 --> 00:18:53,924
That one's me.

318
00:18:55,217 --> 00:18:56,051
Like this.

319
00:18:56,927 --> 00:19:00,681
You get... just enough
and you drop a little on their nose,

320
00:19:00,806 --> 00:19:04,143
because their eyes aren't open yet
and they need to know it.

321
00:19:05,727 --> 00:19:06,562
See?

322
00:19:07,938 --> 00:19:09,565
And then when they open...

323
00:19:11,108 --> 00:19:11,984
Wow.

324
00:19:13,652 --> 00:19:14,862
Do you want to try it?

325
00:19:16,113 --> 00:19:18,115
[dogs barking]

326
00:19:22,452 --> 00:19:25,038
[door creaks] What?

327
00:19:29,168 --> 00:19:30,919
-Huh?
-What do you want?

328
00:19:31,086 --> 00:19:33,964
-I don't need--
-Why are you banging on the wall?

329
00:19:34,298 --> 00:19:36,425
-[stammering] I'm not.
-You are.

330
00:19:36,925 --> 00:19:38,010
And calling my name.

331
00:19:38,719 --> 00:19:39,595
What do you want?

332
00:19:41,263 --> 00:19:42,681
[distinct barking]

333
00:19:45,017 --> 00:19:46,101
There they are again.

334
00:19:47,102 --> 00:19:49,646
You're banging on the wall
to tell me about stupid dogs?

335
00:19:49,730 --> 00:19:50,606
[bang]

336
00:19:52,107 --> 00:19:53,859
What was that?

337
00:19:54,651 --> 00:19:56,028
[banging continues]

338
00:19:56,570 --> 00:19:57,571
[Theo] What is that?

339
00:19:59,823 --> 00:20:00,657
Shirley...

340
00:20:05,454 --> 00:20:06,580
What is it?

341
00:20:08,207 --> 00:20:09,374
[bell chimes[

342
00:20:12,961 --> 00:20:14,963
[heavy object slides]

343
00:20:27,309 --> 00:20:28,936
-[loud banging continues]
-[both screaming]

344
00:20:35,525 --> 00:20:36,443
[screaming] Help!

345
00:20:37,069 --> 00:20:38,779
[breathes heavily]

346
00:20:44,743 --> 00:20:46,286
[both breathing shakily]

347
00:20:46,703 --> 00:20:49,706
Hey.
Hey, what's with the screaming?

348
00:20:50,165 --> 00:20:51,583
-Did you hear that?
-What was that?

349
00:20:51,667 --> 00:20:52,542
What was what?

350
00:20:52,626 --> 00:20:55,295
There were these loud bangs
all over the walls.

351
00:20:55,379 --> 00:20:56,922
I didn't hear it. I don't--

352
00:20:57,005 --> 00:20:59,716
It was so loud!
How could you not hear it?

353
00:21:00,509 --> 00:21:01,426
I believe you.

354
00:21:03,095 --> 00:21:04,304
I believe you.

355
00:21:04,888 --> 00:21:06,223
I know. I know.

356
00:21:07,891 --> 00:21:11,144
[sighs deeply] Listen, there's
nothing to be...

357
00:21:12,854 --> 00:21:13,981
Pipes.

358
00:21:14,690 --> 00:21:16,733
The hot water pipes, they're old.

359
00:21:17,401 --> 00:21:19,695
They can bang and jump in the walls.

360
00:21:20,904 --> 00:21:21,863
I bet that's what it was.

361
00:21:23,657 --> 00:21:24,491
Look.

362
00:21:25,742 --> 00:21:27,286
It's over now, right?

363
00:21:29,830 --> 00:21:31,373
It's o...

364
00:21:33,792 --> 00:21:36,712
-[gasps] Just the pipes.
-[cell phone vibrates]

365
00:21:40,257 --> 00:21:41,883
[whispers] Jesus.

366
00:21:44,761 --> 00:21:45,595
Steve.

367
00:21:46,179 --> 00:21:47,014
It's...

368
00:21:47,389 --> 00:21:48,223
It's Nell.

369
00:21:49,099 --> 00:21:50,726
[Shirley] It's the middle of the night.

370
00:21:50,809 --> 00:21:51,727
She's dead.

371
00:21:53,812 --> 00:21:54,730
Shut up.

372
00:21:55,230 --> 00:21:56,523
She's dead, Shirl.

373
00:21:58,525 --> 00:21:59,693
I'm not so...

374
00:22:00,694 --> 00:22:01,695
good.

375
00:22:05,699 --> 00:22:07,826
What? What the fuck do you mean?

376
00:22:10,162 --> 00:22:11,580
She killed herself.

377
00:22:15,459 --> 00:22:18,420
It's so weird. I came home tonight...

378
00:22:21,923 --> 00:22:23,550
and I was in my living room...

379
00:22:25,218 --> 00:22:26,136
and...

380
00:22:26,762 --> 00:22:27,804
and she was...

381
00:22:27,929 --> 00:22:30,724
Well, you're wrong. [chuckling]
Someone...

382
00:22:31,391 --> 00:22:32,601
They got it wrong.

383
00:22:33,643 --> 00:22:35,771
I mean, she was just... [sniffles]

384
00:22:36,855 --> 00:22:39,191
Um... who told you this?

385
00:22:40,692 --> 00:22:43,070
-Dad called me.
-Well, he's wrong.

386
00:22:44,154 --> 00:22:46,865
He was the last person she
talked to before she did it.

387
00:22:48,200 --> 00:22:49,868
He was the last person she called.

388
00:22:50,035 --> 00:22:50,994
Bullshit.

389
00:22:52,579 --> 00:22:53,997
What did he say?

390
00:22:54,081 --> 00:22:55,665
That she killed herself.

391
00:22:57,125 --> 00:22:58,418
And I didn't...

392
00:22:59,294 --> 00:23:01,171
He didn't exactly tell me, I...

393
00:23:03,298 --> 00:23:05,509
I couldn't really hear him,
because I...

394
00:23:07,302 --> 00:23:08,261
I saw...

395
00:23:08,553 --> 00:23:10,555
No, he wouldn't know.

396
00:23:10,639 --> 00:23:13,558
She wouldn't...
She wouldn't call him.

397
00:23:17,062 --> 00:23:18,814
[sniffles] He can't...

398
00:23:20,607 --> 00:23:21,441
do that again.

399
00:23:21,525 --> 00:23:23,985
He can't just not tell us what happened.
He can't.

400
00:23:25,404 --> 00:23:26,738
I'm sorry, Shirl.
401
00:23:28,115 --> 00:23:29,074
But she has gone.

402
00:23:32,786 --> 00:23:33,829
I told you.

403
00:23:35,747 --> 00:23:37,707
I told you she was in trouble.

404
00:23:38,333 --> 00:23:40,544
I told you to find her. I told you!

405
00:23:41,962 --> 00:23:43,213
I gotta go.

406
00:23:49,428 --> 00:23:51,304
What is it? What happened?

407
00:23:56,685 --> 00:23:57,894
[doorknob clicks]

408
00:24:06,820 --> 00:24:08,947
[sniffles, sobs]

409
00:24:34,014 --> 00:24:35,557
-Good morning.
-[kittens quavering]

410
00:24:56,703 --> 00:24:57,579
Wake up.

411
00:24:59,998 --> 00:25:01,082
[gasps]

412
00:25:06,880 --> 00:25:07,714
Hey.

413
00:25:08,882 --> 00:25:10,300
I found this upstairs.

414
00:25:10,383 --> 00:25:12,093
Decorated it a little bit for her.

415
00:25:12,844 --> 00:25:13,678
Why?

416
00:25:14,262 --> 00:25:16,223
Well, because she was
a very special cat,

417
00:25:16,306 --> 00:25:19,059
and she deserves
a special place to rest.

418
00:25:20,143 --> 00:25:21,353
Is she in there?

419
00:25:21,436 --> 00:25:22,270
Yep.

420
00:25:24,231 --> 00:25:25,148
Can I see her?

421
00:25:33,490 --> 00:25:35,450
Do you want to say something about her?

422
00:25:36,201 --> 00:25:37,827
-Should I?
-You could.

423
00:25:38,912 --> 00:25:40,080
People usually do.

424
00:25:41,122 --> 00:25:42,249
It's called a eulogy.

425
00:25:42,791 --> 00:25:43,917
Well, what do I say?

426
00:25:45,168 --> 00:25:46,086
It's up to you.

427
00:25:46,378 --> 00:25:47,587
Some people say goodbye.

428
00:25:48,880 --> 00:25:49,839
Or...

429
00:25:50,549 --> 00:25:52,133
-you could tell a story.
-Mm-hm.

430
00:25:52,217 --> 00:25:53,343
What kind of story?

431
00:25:54,302 --> 00:25:55,387
Whatever you like.

432
00:25:56,304 --> 00:25:58,265
You know how when you take
one of your pictures,

433
00:25:58,348 --> 00:26:00,976
you capture something forever,
just the way it is?

434
00:26:01,685 --> 00:26:03,061
Stories do that, too.

435
00:26:03,937 --> 00:26:05,188
So when things...

436
00:26:06,064 --> 00:26:07,065
[clicks tongue]

437
00:26:08,483 --> 00:26:09,568
When we die...

438
00:26:10,527 --> 00:26:11,903
we turn into stories.

439
00:26:12,279 --> 00:26:14,739
And every time someone tells
one of those stories,

440
00:26:14,823 --> 00:26:16,366
it's like we're still here...

441
00:26:16,825 --> 00:26:17,701
for them.

442
00:26:19,077 --> 00:26:19,995
We're all...

443
00:26:20,912 --> 00:26:22,497
stories in the end.

444
00:26:23,665 --> 00:26:24,541
Now, try.

445
00:26:32,465 --> 00:26:35,844
This kitten grew up in a tool shed
and my room.

446
00:26:37,178 --> 00:26:38,638
I'm not sure what her name was

447
00:26:38,722 --> 00:26:41,057
because her brothers and sisters
all looked the same,

448
00:26:41,141 --> 00:26:44,394
but I... think she was the one
I called Jasper.

449
00:26:44,519 --> 00:26:45,395
Hmm.

450
00:26:45,729 --> 00:26:47,397
She was a good kitten and...

451
00:26:49,566 --> 00:26:52,902
and... she never hurt a single thing in...

452
00:26:53,403 --> 00:26:56,698
her whole life and
not many people can say that.

453
00:26:58,325 --> 00:27:00,118
-That's perfect, sweetie.
-Mm-hm.

454
00:27:01,411 --> 00:27:04,789
Goodbye, little kitty.
I hope you have a safe trip to Heaven,

455
00:27:04,873 --> 00:27:08,460
and when you get there, there's some
nice, yummy milk waiting, and...

456
00:27:11,713 --> 00:27:12,714
She's alive.

457
00:27:13,214 --> 00:27:14,132
What?

458
00:27:14,215 --> 00:27:15,258
She--

459
00:27:16,926 --> 00:27:18,094
She's alive!

460
00:27:19,054 --> 00:27:20,889
Honey, look, I know this is--

461
00:27:20,972 --> 00:27:22,515
No, she is. She is...

462
00:27:23,350 --> 00:27:25,143
She really is. Look.

463
00:27:26,478 --> 00:27:28,438
-Honey, I know--
-Her lips are moving.

464
00:27:28,521 --> 00:27:30,190
Okay... Hey...

465
00:27:30,273 --> 00:27:32,233
-Hey, it's okay.
-Wait, wait a second.

466
00:27:32,317 --> 00:27:35,153
Wake up, little kitty.
It's okay, I'm right here.

467
00:27:36,863 --> 00:27:37,947
Yeah...

468
00:27:45,664 --> 00:27:46,956
[screams]

469
00:27:55,674 --> 00:27:58,218
I'll need you to head up there,
pick up the body,

470
00:27:58,301 --> 00:27:59,803
and bring her back here.

471
00:28:00,220 --> 00:28:02,764
And pack her carefully.
It's a long drive.

472
00:28:03,807 --> 00:28:04,641
Sure.

473
00:28:07,018 --> 00:28:09,312
Listen, I'm very sorry.

474
00:28:09,896 --> 00:28:12,190
-I don't know what to say in these--
-It...

475
00:28:13,191 --> 00:28:14,192
It's fine, Andi.

476
00:28:15,235 --> 00:28:17,070
Call me when you're on the road.

477
00:28:19,989 --> 00:28:22,867
-[Kevin] I don't think it's a good idea.
-It's the right thing.

478
00:28:22,951 --> 00:28:25,412
Why not send her to Carlisle?
They'll do a great job there.

479
00:28:25,495 --> 00:28:28,832
-I think it's a bad idea, too.
-Honey, let someone else do it.

480
00:28:28,915 --> 00:28:31,126
-You need to focus on you--
-She's my sister.

481
00:28:31,418 --> 00:28:33,962
I'm hosting her funeral. That's that.

482
00:28:34,379 --> 00:28:35,922
Is it going to give everyone time?

483
00:28:36,506 --> 00:28:37,465
What do you mean?

484
00:28:38,049 --> 00:28:40,009
I mean Steven, Luke, Dad.

485
00:28:40,093 --> 00:28:42,303
Dad's the reason Nell was so fucked up
to begin with

486
00:28:42,387 --> 00:28:44,431
and Luke's probably high as a kite.

487
00:28:44,514 --> 00:28:47,475
-I thought he was in rehab.
-He was apparently, until this morning.

488
00:28:47,559 --> 00:28:50,145
They said he flew the coop.
No idea where he is.

489
00:28:50,228 --> 00:28:52,605
-Does he even know that she's dead?
-No idea.

490
00:28:52,689 --> 00:28:53,982
If he doesn't, that's on him.

491
00:28:54,065 --> 00:28:57,402
He deserves to be here.
You're not giving him time to get here.

492
00:28:57,485 --> 00:29:00,029
He missed her wedding,
we're not gonna let him miss her funeral.

493
00:29:00,113 --> 00:29:02,657
He has time, but I'm not leaving her
in a freezer

494
00:29:02,741 --> 00:29:04,784
until Luke gets his shit together.

495
00:29:05,410 --> 00:29:06,661
She'll be there forever.

496
00:29:06,911 --> 00:29:09,038
I'm... I gotta get to work.

497
00:29:09,539 --> 00:29:11,791
Shirl... Shirl.

498
00:29:28,141 --> 00:29:30,310
[whispering] Sweetie, we've talked
about this.

499
00:29:30,393 --> 00:29:32,228
[whispering] Max, you can do it,
I know you can.

500
00:29:32,437 --> 00:29:33,354
You can.

501
00:29:34,189 --> 00:29:35,106
Good morning.

502
00:29:38,234 --> 00:29:39,778
It's the moment of truth, Max.

503
00:29:46,117 --> 00:29:47,160
It's okay.

504
00:29:47,744 --> 00:29:48,828
I don't want to.

505
00:29:50,246 --> 00:29:52,248
If you don't, you'll be upset later.

506
00:29:53,333 --> 00:29:54,334
I promise...

507
00:29:55,001 --> 00:29:56,252
this is a good thing...

508
00:29:56,586 --> 00:29:57,796
and you're a good boy.

509
00:30:00,715 --> 00:30:01,883
And you can do this.

510
00:30:07,514 --> 00:30:08,556
I'll go with you.

511
00:30:15,271 --> 00:30:16,105
Shirley...

512
00:30:19,192 --> 00:30:21,152
[hushed] It's gonna be okay, Shirley.

513
00:30:21,236 --> 00:30:23,446
[cries] I don't want to see her.

514
00:30:27,450 --> 00:30:29,160
-[sobs]
-It's important.

515
00:30:31,704 --> 00:30:33,373
Look, even Nellie's up there.

516
00:30:35,500 --> 00:30:37,377
-No, I don't want to go.
-Shirley...

517
00:30:37,460 --> 00:30:38,753
No. [sniffles, sobs]

518
00:30:39,921 --> 00:30:41,047
Is everything okay?

519
00:30:41,881 --> 00:30:43,800
She's just a little scared, I think.

520
00:30:43,883 --> 00:30:45,260
Oh, that's okay.

521
00:30:45,635 --> 00:30:47,303
Here, come with me.

522
00:31:07,073 --> 00:31:08,616
[Shirley] Absolutely not.

523
00:31:08,700 --> 00:31:10,243
[Kevin] Shirl, she's fantastic.

524
00:31:10,326 --> 00:31:12,996
-[Andi] You've nothing to worry about.
-You don't know her.

525
00:31:13,079 --> 00:31:15,039
You don't have to know someone
to do the cosmetics.

526
00:31:15,123 --> 00:31:16,040
[Shirley] And restoration.

527
00:31:16,457 --> 00:31:18,167
The coroner ruled it a suicide,

528
00:31:18,251 --> 00:31:20,044
and there's restorative work
I've got to do.

529
00:31:20,128 --> 00:31:22,297
-Shirl...
-She was in that house for hours.

530
00:31:22,755 --> 00:31:25,633
She's... The blood pooled, insects,
her injuries... [inhales]

531
00:31:26,384 --> 00:31:29,137
She was only refrigerated
for a couple of hours,

532
00:31:29,220 --> 00:31:31,264
and then in transport, the level of...

533
00:31:31,347 --> 00:31:34,142
In time it will take me
to explain to you what to do with her,

534
00:31:34,225 --> 00:31:36,185
I could just do it myself,
so I'm doing her myself.

535
00:31:36,269 --> 00:31:37,854
This... is insane.

536
00:31:38,771 --> 00:31:40,064
Excuse us, please.

537
00:31:42,358 --> 00:31:43,484
[sighs]

538
00:31:44,068 --> 00:31:45,445
I owe her this.

539
00:31:46,195 --> 00:31:47,906
This is too much for anyone.

540
00:31:48,072 --> 00:31:50,283
The hours, the bugs...

541
00:31:51,367 --> 00:31:52,869
I'm doing it, Kevin.

542
00:31:56,748 --> 00:31:57,916
I'll fix her.

543
00:31:58,791 --> 00:31:59,834
[ambulance door shuts]

544
00:32:11,846 --> 00:32:12,764
[object slides]

545
00:32:17,393 --> 00:32:18,436
I gotta go.

546
00:32:19,020 --> 00:32:20,271
I'm sorry, I...

547
00:32:20,897 --> 00:32:22,065
just can't, Shirl.

548
00:32:43,920 --> 00:32:44,963
Let's take her down.

549
00:33:31,509 --> 00:33:32,677
[unzips]

550
00:33:54,532 --> 00:33:57,076
-[young Nell] Can I feed the kittens?
-[young Shirley] Sure thing.

551
00:33:57,160 --> 00:33:58,953
Just, remember how I showed you.

552
00:34:05,168 --> 00:34:06,627
Are they still sleeping?

553
00:34:22,393 --> 00:34:23,352
No...

554
00:34:23,603 --> 00:34:25,146
No, no, no, no.

555
00:34:25,229 --> 00:34:26,564
-No.
-[kittens quavering]

556
00:34:27,273 --> 00:34:28,191
[sighs]

557
00:34:29,484 --> 00:34:30,651
Shirley?

558
00:34:33,237 --> 00:34:34,405
[quavers]

559
00:34:38,576 --> 00:34:39,494
[screams]

560
00:34:39,577 --> 00:34:41,579
Well, that's what's happening, Steve.

561
00:34:42,038 --> 00:34:44,207
I don't care how you get here,

562
00:34:44,290 --> 00:34:46,167
-just get here.
-You're taking on too much.

563
00:34:46,250 --> 00:34:48,878
-You've gotta just be able to grieve.
-Don't talk to me that way.

564
00:34:48,961 --> 00:34:51,172
I don't even know where Luke is.
We've been looking.

565
00:34:51,255 --> 00:34:52,757
-You and Dad?
-That's right.

566
00:34:53,091 --> 00:34:55,343
We've been looking,
but they don't know where he went.

567
00:34:55,426 --> 00:34:57,595
Apparently he went out
of a goddamn window.

568
00:34:57,804 --> 00:35:00,014
Steve, do you know
what I'm doing right now?

569
00:35:00,098 --> 00:35:02,183
I'm elbow deep in our sister's
chest cavity

570
00:35:02,266 --> 00:35:04,227
pulling out a bag of her internal organs.

571
00:35:04,602 --> 00:35:06,604
That's what happens
when a body's autopsied

572
00:35:06,687 --> 00:35:08,272
and I have to take it out.

573
00:35:08,356 --> 00:35:11,359
You have to get two grown men
to a goddamn airport.

574
00:35:11,442 --> 00:35:12,443
Get it done.

575
00:35:13,778 --> 00:35:14,862
[line disconnects]

576
00:35:18,825 --> 00:35:20,076
She's doing it herself.

577
00:35:21,661 --> 00:35:23,204
-[Steven exhales]
-She isn't.

578
00:35:23,287 --> 00:35:24,747
She's doing it herself.

579
00:35:26,791 --> 00:35:28,376
[Olivia] This kind of thing happens.

580
00:35:29,585 --> 00:35:32,171
Kittens aren't supposed to be
without their mommies.

581
00:35:32,797 --> 00:35:36,175
And no matter how much you love them,
you're not their mommy.

582
00:35:37,510 --> 00:35:38,344
And they're...

583
00:35:39,428 --> 00:35:40,513
They're better now.

584
00:35:41,430 --> 00:35:43,307
They're where they're supposed to be.

585
00:35:44,600 --> 00:35:46,060
What about the little one?

586
00:35:47,353 --> 00:35:48,563
What about the eyes?

587
00:35:51,399 --> 00:35:52,733
We found it a new home.

588
00:35:54,735 --> 00:35:57,780
But why didn't you let me
take care of it?

589
00:35:57,864 --> 00:35:59,740
-Or at least say goodbye?
-Shirl...

590
00:36:00,116 --> 00:36:02,368
we have no idea what was wrong
with those kittens,

591
00:36:02,451 --> 00:36:03,578
they were very sick.

592
00:36:04,078 --> 00:36:07,081
We couldn't let you try to take care
of a pet who was so sick.

593
00:36:07,165 --> 00:36:09,584
But... you gave it to someone else.

594
00:36:10,626 --> 00:36:12,879
-We...
-I don't believe you.

595
00:36:14,505 --> 00:36:15,339
Shirl...

596
00:36:16,007 --> 00:36:17,550
-um...
-Just tell me.

597
00:36:17,633 --> 00:36:18,926
Just... just... [stammers]

598
00:36:19,010 --> 00:36:22,597
[shouting] Why would you give away the
last one, the only one left?

599
00:36:22,680 --> 00:36:24,765
-Just quiet...
-It's not fair!

600
00:36:24,932 --> 00:36:26,893
-[shouts] Just stop it! Stop it!
-It's not fair!

601
00:36:26,976 --> 00:36:29,312
[yelping, gasps]

602
00:36:31,272 --> 00:36:32,231
[gasps]

603
00:36:34,233 --> 00:36:35,234
Mm.

604
00:36:35,318 --> 00:36:38,196
It's been a minute since you had
one of your color storms.

605
00:36:41,157 --> 00:36:42,033
That's the thing.

606
00:36:42,700 --> 00:36:44,368
There was no color at all.

607
00:36:44,827 --> 00:36:46,579
It was pitch black.

608
00:36:49,081 --> 00:36:49,999
Like...

609
00:36:50,666 --> 00:36:51,500
like...

610
00:36:52,376 --> 00:36:53,502
fireworks, but...

611
00:36:55,046 --> 00:36:55,922
black.

612
00:36:57,506 --> 00:36:58,925
And it hit me like a...

613
00:36:59,884 --> 00:37:01,761
It's never come that fast before.

614
00:37:02,803 --> 00:37:04,805
First migraine in what, a year?

615
00:37:05,223 --> 00:37:07,934
And it happens at the worst
possible moment.

616
00:37:09,518 --> 00:37:11,479
-And you're better?
-Mm.

617
00:37:12,104 --> 00:37:14,690
Codeine's finally kicking in.
[inhales sharply]

618
00:37:22,406 --> 00:37:24,784
I wish I had been
part of that conversation.

619
00:37:29,247 --> 00:37:30,748
Would you have said different?

620
00:37:32,333 --> 00:37:33,251
Probably not.

621
00:37:42,385 --> 00:37:43,261
I got it.

622
00:37:51,227 --> 00:37:53,813
Would you have said you had
to go to the woods and...

623
00:37:54,188 --> 00:37:56,565
put this sick little kitten
out of its misery?

624
00:37:58,192 --> 00:38:02,488
No, of course not, but it's a tough thing
for a kid, and we should--

625
00:38:02,571 --> 00:38:04,949
Look, she's going to have a pretty
messed up view of death

626
00:38:05,032 --> 00:38:06,742
coming out of this no matter what,

627
00:38:06,826 --> 00:38:08,911
which wouldn't have happened
if you hadn't have...

628
00:38:10,955 --> 00:38:11,872
Go ahead.

629
00:38:12,206 --> 00:38:13,791
No, it was unfair.

630
00:38:14,625 --> 00:38:15,584
Go ahead anyway.

631
00:38:15,710 --> 00:38:17,962
Why the hell did you let her
keep those kittens?

632
00:38:18,045 --> 00:38:20,423
Well, I didn't know that they were
all gonna die.

633
00:38:20,506 --> 00:38:24,719
You let her keep a box of diseased kittens
in her bedroom.

634
00:38:24,927 --> 00:38:27,388
[stammers] And now she's traumatized.

635
00:38:27,680 --> 00:38:31,142
Her first real brush with death
and now she's... [breathes shakily]

636
00:38:31,225 --> 00:38:33,769
And then I have one chance
to pull it back,

637
00:38:33,853 --> 00:38:37,398
and I lie to her face
and lock up with a migraine.

638
00:38:38,941 --> 00:38:42,153
This was not our finest hour,
no doubt.

639
00:39:28,741 --> 00:39:29,575
Shit.

640
00:39:36,499 --> 00:39:37,333
Sorry.

641
00:39:37,416 --> 00:39:39,585
You're not allowed down here.
You know that.

642
00:39:39,668 --> 00:39:41,420
-I know, we were just--
-It's okay.

643
00:39:42,254 --> 00:39:44,173
It's just, Auntie Nell.

644
00:39:45,174 --> 00:39:46,050
I know.

645
00:39:47,301 --> 00:39:48,511
I know you're curious.

646
00:39:49,428 --> 00:39:50,554
And sad.

647
00:39:52,223 --> 00:39:53,140
I'm sad, too.

648
00:39:54,308 --> 00:39:55,851
So sad I can't even tell you.

649
00:39:57,937 --> 00:39:59,230
What do you want to know?

650
00:40:03,275 --> 00:40:04,318
I won't lie to you.

651
00:40:04,693 --> 00:40:07,613
Any questions you have
are completely normal, okay?

652
00:40:08,614 --> 00:40:09,990
What are you doing to her?

653
00:40:11,534 --> 00:40:14,620
I just finished embalming her,
and it helps her look...

654
00:40:14,995 --> 00:40:16,247
how we remember.

655
00:40:16,497 --> 00:40:17,581
Why did she die?

656
00:40:20,167 --> 00:40:21,001
I don't know.

657
00:40:22,294 --> 00:40:23,796
Just so sad that she did.

658
00:40:24,004 --> 00:40:25,589
She loved you both so much.

659
00:40:26,298 --> 00:40:28,676
-Where is she now?
-I don't know, Allie.

660
00:40:29,718 --> 00:40:30,719
Nobody knows.

661
00:40:31,929 --> 00:40:34,640
I can tell you what I think, maybe,
sometime tomorrow.

662
00:40:36,767 --> 00:40:38,769
But mostly I'm just sad.

663
00:40:40,396 --> 00:40:42,398
I know you're curious about her,

664
00:40:42,481 --> 00:40:44,442
but this part isn't for people to see.

665
00:40:45,568 --> 00:40:47,736
I can tell you everything
I'm doing, but...

666
00:40:48,529 --> 00:40:49,572
some other time.

667
00:40:50,322 --> 00:40:51,740
[sniffles] Right now.

668
00:40:57,246 --> 00:41:01,542
Why don't you two go pick your favorite
picture of Auntie Nell

669
00:41:01,625 --> 00:41:03,127
from one of the albums...

670
00:41:03,919 --> 00:41:06,464
and I can hang it at the funeral?

671
00:41:08,215 --> 00:41:09,049
Okay?

672
00:41:10,759 --> 00:41:11,635
Okay.

673
00:41:20,895 --> 00:41:22,021
[breathes shakily]

674
00:41:40,372 --> 00:41:41,999
[inhales deeply, exhales]

675
00:42:06,315 --> 00:42:07,483
[Nell] I'm so excited.

676
00:42:07,900 --> 00:42:09,443
You're gonna look amazing.

677
00:42:09,527 --> 00:42:11,862
[exhales] You already look amazing.

678
00:42:12,988 --> 00:42:14,532
You know what I mean. [chuckles]

679
00:42:15,866 --> 00:42:18,494
[giggling] Gorgeous. Uh!

680
00:42:18,744 --> 00:42:21,622
-Come on, we still got a ways to go.
-I know, but you do.

681
00:42:22,414 --> 00:42:24,166
I'm so happy for you, Nellie.

682
00:42:25,167 --> 00:42:26,669
-[knocks on door]
-Come in.

683
00:42:26,794 --> 00:42:27,795
[door opens]

684
00:42:28,587 --> 00:42:29,463
Hey.

685
00:42:29,922 --> 00:42:30,756
Hey.

686
00:42:31,549 --> 00:42:32,550
[door shuts]

687
00:42:32,967 --> 00:42:35,010
Wow. You look amazing.

688
00:42:35,386 --> 00:42:36,345
Thanks.

689
00:42:36,929 --> 00:42:38,430
-How's Arthur?
-Oh, him?

690
00:42:38,514 --> 00:42:40,683
He's great. I handcuffed him
to a radiator downstairs.

691
00:42:40,766 --> 00:42:42,268
-He's not going anywhere.
-Steve.

692
00:42:42,518 --> 00:42:44,687
He's as happy as I've ever seen a guy.

693
00:42:45,229 --> 00:42:46,647
-[gasps]
-And he should be.

694
00:42:51,193 --> 00:42:53,571
Well, anyway, I just wanted to say
break a leg.

695
00:42:53,988 --> 00:42:55,906
-And if you make a run for it...
-[Nell chuckles]

696
00:42:55,990 --> 00:42:57,908
-I'll keep the car running, okay?
-Okay.

697
00:43:01,370 --> 00:43:03,247
-[door shuts]
-[Shirley sighs]

698
00:43:04,290 --> 00:43:07,585
How lucky for us,
a famous author at your wedding.

699
00:43:08,210 --> 00:43:09,461
-You promised.
-[laughs]

700
00:43:10,629 --> 00:43:13,924
I know. Not another word, I promise.

701
00:43:23,976 --> 00:43:24,852
What is it?

702
00:43:25,894 --> 00:43:28,355
Nothing. I should be right back.
We'll finish up.

703
00:43:28,522 --> 00:43:29,440
[door opens]

704
00:43:30,899 --> 00:43:31,900
[door shuts, opens]

705
00:43:34,778 --> 00:43:35,738
Hey.

706
00:43:36,071 --> 00:43:38,365
Hey, I didn't know if this was--

707
00:43:38,449 --> 00:43:39,366
-The hell, Luke?
-What?

708
00:43:39,450 --> 00:43:42,161
-Taxi, hold up!
-What? Hey, I'm fine.

709
00:43:42,369 --> 00:43:43,454
I'm fine.

710
00:43:44,663 --> 00:43:45,789
[stammers] I just...

711
00:43:45,914 --> 00:43:48,626
I just wanted to make sure
I got to tell her that I was happy--

712
00:43:48,709 --> 00:43:49,668
Look at me.

713
00:43:49,918 --> 00:43:51,378
-[exhales] What?
-Look at me.

714
00:43:55,507 --> 00:43:56,467
You're high.

715
00:43:58,093 --> 00:43:58,969
No.

716
00:43:59,219 --> 00:44:00,596
No, I'm not.

717
00:44:00,679 --> 00:44:02,640
-So you got the day pass?
-Yeah.

718
00:44:02,723 --> 00:44:05,809
-They're very supportive.
-Luke, I paid for rehab.

719
00:44:05,893 --> 00:44:07,936
Guess who they called
when you ran away last week?

720
00:44:09,480 --> 00:44:10,606
Last week.

721
00:44:10,689 --> 00:44:12,941
Shirl, she's expecting me to be here.

722
00:44:13,025 --> 00:44:14,026
No, she's not.

723
00:44:14,109 --> 00:44:14,943
Nobody is.

724
00:44:16,403 --> 00:44:17,655
Today's about Nell.

725
00:44:18,113 --> 00:44:19,615
-Yeah.
-Do you get that?

726
00:44:19,698 --> 00:44:20,824
This is her day.

727
00:44:20,908 --> 00:44:23,410
You're not smearing your shit
all over her day, Luke.

728
00:44:23,494 --> 00:44:24,870
-Shirl--
-You're not.

729
00:44:24,953 --> 00:44:26,997
I'm level, I just... [gasps]

730
00:44:27,206 --> 00:44:29,500
I just really want to be here for her.

731
00:44:29,583 --> 00:44:32,002
You should've thought that
before you put the needle in your arm.

732
00:44:32,878 --> 00:44:34,922
What's the cab? Twenty? Thirty?

733
00:44:37,132 --> 00:44:38,258
Here's a hundred.

734
00:44:38,342 --> 00:44:40,010
You can shoot up the rest,
I don't care.

735
00:44:40,928 --> 00:44:43,013
This is the last I ever give you.

736
00:44:44,098 --> 00:44:47,559
No more loans,
no more treatment centers, nothing.

737
00:44:48,936 --> 00:44:50,979
The store's closed. I'm done.

738
00:44:55,401 --> 00:44:56,360
I...

739
00:44:58,821 --> 00:45:00,030
um...

740
00:45:02,741 --> 00:45:04,952
[sighs] Sorry. Bridesmaid stuff.

741
00:45:05,035 --> 00:45:07,454
-Is everything okay?
-Everything's perfect.

742
00:45:07,830 --> 00:45:09,540
You're gonna have the perfect wedding.

743
00:45:10,791 --> 00:45:11,834
Almost perfect.

744
00:45:15,045 --> 00:45:16,088
[chuckles]

745
00:45:26,306 --> 00:45:27,266
I'm sorry.

746
00:46:07,681 --> 00:46:08,766
[whimpers]

747
00:46:11,310 --> 00:46:12,561
[sniffles]

748
00:46:15,481 --> 00:46:16,565
[sobs]

749
00:46:19,401 --> 00:46:20,444
[whimpering]

750
00:46:25,699 --> 00:46:27,075
[breathes shakily]

751
00:46:31,580 --> 00:46:32,873
[sobbing]

752
00:46:47,221 --> 00:46:48,055
You...

753
00:46:49,097 --> 00:46:50,265
you fixed her.

754
00:46:53,227 --> 00:46:54,478
Well, that's what I do.

755
00:46:59,399 --> 00:47:00,442
You fixed her.

756
00:47:03,487 --> 00:47:04,988
[young Shirley] You fixed her.

757
00:47:21,839 --> 00:47:22,840
[switch clicks]

758
00:47:43,610 --> 00:47:44,736
[exhales]
