1
00:00:16,266 --> 00:00:18,143
[young Luke] He was in the basement.

2
00:00:19,227 --> 00:00:21,062
He even ripped my shirt,

3
00:00:21,146 --> 00:00:23,440
and they still didn't believe me.

4
00:00:24,024 --> 00:00:25,734
They never believe me.

5
00:00:26,192 --> 00:00:28,319
They don't even believe me about you.

6
00:00:29,612 --> 00:00:31,573
You believe me, don't you, Abigail?

7
00:01:46,397 --> 00:01:50,151
[Gordon] When I was a kid, my brother
taught me how to spot faces in clouds.

8
00:01:50,902 --> 00:01:53,488
I could pull a face out of
a lot of things. Water...

9
00:01:54,030 --> 00:01:55,156
mud, leaves...

10
00:01:57,117 --> 00:01:58,118
wallpaper.

11
00:02:00,745 --> 00:02:03,414
You know, I get a little older,
I start messing around

12
00:02:03,498 --> 00:02:06,584
with liquor and drugs and...

13
00:02:07,043 --> 00:02:09,420
I was going down all the wrong routes,
you know?

14
00:02:10,505 --> 00:02:12,257
So, uh... [inhales deeply]

15
00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,050
I joined the service,

16
00:02:14,134 --> 00:02:16,052
you know, thinking it
would straight me out.

17
00:02:16,636 --> 00:02:17,846
And it did.

18
00:02:20,265 --> 00:02:22,600
Two thousand and four,
my second tour in Iraq,

19
00:02:22,684 --> 00:02:26,396
my company secured the ruins
of a bombed-out hospital in Baghdad,

20
00:02:26,479 --> 00:02:27,355
and...

21
00:02:29,899 --> 00:02:31,818
We came across this little Iraqi girl.

22
00:02:31,901 --> 00:02:34,279
I mean, she was burnt up, dead.
You know.

23
00:02:37,907 --> 00:02:40,618
See, the thing is, most folks
don't know what happen to...

24
00:02:41,536 --> 00:02:44,414
Most folks don't know what happens
to eyeballs in a fire.

25
00:02:45,582 --> 00:02:47,667
In the right kind of fire, they...

26
00:02:48,585 --> 00:02:49,544
they can melt.

27
00:02:52,714 --> 00:02:55,383
Like runny eggs on black skin.

28
00:02:55,717 --> 00:02:56,551
You know?

29
00:02:56,634 --> 00:02:57,552
And...

30
00:02:59,179 --> 00:03:01,181
I mean, that fucked me up pretty bad.

31
00:03:02,307 --> 00:03:04,684
[sighs] Um...

32
00:03:05,185 --> 00:03:07,395
anyway, six months later
I'm back in the States,

33
00:03:07,478 --> 00:03:10,607
and pretty soon I start seeing
that little dead girl's face everywhere.

34
00:03:10,690 --> 00:03:14,194
It's in the clouds, it's in the dark,
on fabric.

35
00:03:14,277 --> 00:03:15,945
It's fucking everywhere.

36
00:03:16,029 --> 00:03:16,863
You know?

37
00:03:19,908 --> 00:03:21,868
That little girl's charred body and...

38
00:03:22,410 --> 00:03:23,661
melted eyes...

39
00:03:24,787 --> 00:03:26,164
running down her cheeks.

40
00:03:26,456 --> 00:03:29,918
And pretty soon, before I know it,
I'm using again.

41
00:03:30,043 --> 00:03:31,502
[exhales]

42
00:03:33,588 --> 00:03:36,799
So one night, I drop a little acid
and there she is.

43
00:03:38,426 --> 00:03:41,804
I mean, it's growing
out of the goddamn wallpaper, you know?

44
00:03:41,888 --> 00:03:43,514
I mean, and she's staring at me.

45
00:03:44,307 --> 00:03:45,850
Eyeless even, I can tell.

46
00:03:46,559 --> 00:03:48,228
So I grab this knitting needle...

47
00:03:48,645 --> 00:03:49,812
you know, and...

48
00:03:50,021 --> 00:03:52,190
all I can think about was how to--

49
00:03:52,440 --> 00:03:53,691
how to make it stop.

50
00:03:55,443 --> 00:03:57,278
Seemed like a good idea at the time.

51
00:03:57,779 --> 00:03:58,863
[sighs]

52
00:03:59,489 --> 00:04:01,616
So, then I'm blind.

53
00:04:03,826 --> 00:04:06,454
But I mean, like,
I-can't-see-anything blind, right?

54
00:04:07,247 --> 00:04:08,957
Thing is, is I still see her.

55
00:04:09,040 --> 00:04:10,959
I can't see anything else.

56
00:04:11,376 --> 00:04:12,418
I see her.

57
00:04:13,211 --> 00:04:15,672
Crispy kid with the runny-egg eyes.

58
00:04:22,428 --> 00:04:24,222
Twenty-four/seven, I see her face.

59
00:04:25,640 --> 00:04:26,891
Shit, I see it now.

60
00:04:27,725 --> 00:04:28,726
You know?

61
00:04:29,269 --> 00:04:30,228
But...

62
00:04:30,979 --> 00:04:32,105
I'm here.

63
00:04:33,314 --> 00:04:34,774
Two months I've been clean.

64
00:04:34,857 --> 00:04:36,150
It's a little too late.

65
00:04:38,945 --> 00:04:41,322
I leaned on my habit to get rid
of that face

66
00:04:41,406 --> 00:04:43,491
and my habit made sure
that I never would.

67
00:04:49,289 --> 00:04:50,290
That's why I'm here.

68
00:04:53,793 --> 00:04:54,627
Two months.

69
00:04:58,506 --> 00:04:59,590
Well, thanks, Gordon.

70
00:05:00,675 --> 00:05:01,843
We're glad you're here.

71
00:05:04,595 --> 00:05:06,306
Any of our newbies want to share?

72
00:05:12,145 --> 00:05:13,646
Luke, how about you?

73
00:05:16,899 --> 00:05:19,152
And follow that?
You kidding me?

74
00:05:19,444 --> 00:05:20,320
[slight chuckle]

75
00:05:29,662 --> 00:05:31,914
[woman] Would anyone like to take
a newcomer chip?

76
00:05:32,582 --> 00:05:33,916
How about 30 days clean?

77
00:05:36,127 --> 00:05:37,003
Sixty?

78
00:05:38,087 --> 00:05:38,963
Ninety?

79
00:05:39,422 --> 00:05:40,506
[slight chuckle]

80
00:05:44,719 --> 00:05:45,762
[clears throat]

81
00:05:48,473 --> 00:05:49,932
-Thank you.
-You are welcome.

82
00:05:57,398 --> 00:05:58,316
Um...

83
00:05:58,399 --> 00:05:59,942
Luke, um, addict.

84
00:06:00,401 --> 00:06:02,111
-Hi, Luke.
-Hi.

85
00:06:03,196 --> 00:06:07,033
I actually don't know what I
want to say here. [slight chuckle]

86
00:06:07,200 --> 00:06:10,495
You know, I've never had
this much time before.

87
00:06:10,828 --> 00:06:11,913
You know, 90 days.

88
00:06:14,040 --> 00:06:15,375
[exhales, chuckles]

89
00:06:16,626 --> 00:06:17,460
Um...

90
00:06:21,422 --> 00:06:22,632
So, here goes.

91
00:06:25,385 --> 00:06:26,219
[young Luke] One.

92
00:06:28,596 --> 00:06:29,597
Two.

93
00:06:31,599 --> 00:06:32,517
Three.

94
00:06:33,935 --> 00:06:34,769
Four.

95
00:06:38,106 --> 00:06:38,981
Five.

96
00:06:43,152 --> 00:06:44,445
Six.

97
00:06:47,448 --> 00:06:48,533
Seven.

98
00:06:51,661 --> 00:06:54,247
That's him,
the man I saw in the basement.

99
00:06:54,872 --> 00:06:57,750
Well, your mother and I
searched the entire basement, pal,

100
00:06:58,000 --> 00:06:59,627
and there's nothing down there.

101
00:07:00,294 --> 00:07:04,173
It's normal for kids to have
imaginary friends and nightmares.

102
00:07:04,257 --> 00:07:05,216
But...

103
00:07:06,175 --> 00:07:07,427
Go ahead, I'm listening.

104
00:07:08,302 --> 00:07:10,304
This house is bad, Dad. It's bad.

105
00:07:10,638 --> 00:07:13,891
Boy oh boy, we could have a heck
of a yard sale, guys.

106
00:07:14,267 --> 00:07:15,643
[slight chuckle] Yeah.

107
00:07:16,269 --> 00:07:17,186
[giggle]

108
00:07:18,104 --> 00:07:19,730
Has anyone seen Nellie?

109
00:07:21,190 --> 00:07:22,275
That's weird.

110
00:07:22,483 --> 00:07:24,402
-You know, she was just here.
-Oh.

111
00:07:24,569 --> 00:07:27,071
It's okay, I just thought you might like
these cool old buttons

112
00:07:27,155 --> 00:07:28,531
-I found upstairs.
-Buttons?

113
00:07:28,614 --> 00:07:29,949
You got me.

114
00:07:30,450 --> 00:07:32,743
My little Houdini. [smacks kiss]
Look.

115
00:07:36,205 --> 00:07:37,457
Whoa.

116
00:07:37,540 --> 00:07:38,958
Can I have the hat?

117
00:07:41,878 --> 00:07:42,753
Um...

118
00:07:43,212 --> 00:07:44,881
I think it's too big for you, honey.

119
00:07:44,964 --> 00:07:47,133
I don't know. He'll grow into it.

120
00:07:48,801 --> 00:07:51,637
That is a big boy hat, all right.

121
00:07:51,721 --> 00:07:52,847
You want this?

122
00:07:53,723 --> 00:07:55,141
Well, you are a big boy now.

123
00:07:55,558 --> 00:07:56,893
But you know, big boys,

124
00:07:56,976 --> 00:07:59,896
they know the difference between
what's real and what's imaginary.

125
00:08:00,146 --> 00:08:01,481
So what do you say, champ?

126
00:08:02,899 --> 00:08:03,983
[slight chuckle]

127
00:08:08,112 --> 00:08:09,780
[Olivia and young Hugh laughing]

128
00:08:10,323 --> 00:08:11,157
You like it?

129
00:08:11,741 --> 00:08:12,658
He loves it.

130
00:08:12,867 --> 00:08:14,035
Well, how do you know that?

131
00:08:14,452 --> 00:08:15,495
It's a twin thing.

132
00:08:15,703 --> 00:08:16,829
You two go and play.

133
00:08:20,500 --> 00:08:21,375
[sighs]

134
00:08:21,542 --> 00:08:23,002
So much up there.

135
00:08:28,883 --> 00:08:29,759
Nice.

136
00:08:29,842 --> 00:08:31,761
I'm having a total déjà vu right now.

137
00:08:34,514 --> 00:08:35,473
What do you see?

138
00:08:37,183 --> 00:08:39,477
Two tables... advancing colors.

139
00:08:40,686 --> 00:08:42,730
Four reading areas.

140
00:08:43,773 --> 00:08:45,733
Casegoods and leather.

141
00:08:47,443 --> 00:08:51,405
A mom and dad sitting in reading chairs
that face each other.

142
00:08:52,198 --> 00:08:54,242
Smaller ones for two...

143
00:08:54,659 --> 00:08:56,702
no, three kids...

144
00:08:56,869 --> 00:08:58,913
who share an open center for play.

145
00:09:00,873 --> 00:09:02,583
Kids' books are on the lower shelf

146
00:09:02,667 --> 00:09:05,711
so even the little boy with the wheelchair
can reach his favorites.

147
00:09:06,003 --> 00:09:07,463
-[sighs]
-Wow.

148
00:09:08,381 --> 00:09:09,924
That got really specific.

149
00:09:10,550 --> 00:09:11,592
[both chuckle]

150
00:09:12,009 --> 00:09:12,843
Well...

151
00:09:13,886 --> 00:09:16,430
Casegoods and leather, though, for sure.

152
00:09:18,266 --> 00:09:21,811
And I see an accident waiting to happen
if you don't pull those down.

153
00:09:22,812 --> 00:09:25,022
Bodies swinging back and forth
right there.

154
00:09:25,106 --> 00:09:26,023
Yeah.

155
00:09:26,440 --> 00:09:27,358
I'll get to it.

156
00:09:28,150 --> 00:09:29,110
[smacks kiss]

157
00:09:31,654 --> 00:09:33,364
[Luke] I must be allergic
to the fourth step.

158
00:09:35,283 --> 00:09:38,452
[exhales] Every time I do one,
I break out in track marks.

159
00:09:39,036 --> 00:09:41,998
Good. If you liked it
you'd be doing it wrong.

160
00:09:42,582 --> 00:09:44,584
"A fearless moral inventory."

161
00:09:44,667 --> 00:09:46,544
We're only as sick as our secrets.

162
00:09:46,627 --> 00:09:47,878
Okay, well...

163
00:09:49,005 --> 00:09:49,839
Let's see.

164
00:09:50,381 --> 00:09:53,217
I've burned Shirley
for thousands of dollars.

165
00:09:53,801 --> 00:09:55,428
Lied to Theo like it was my job.

166
00:09:55,511 --> 00:09:57,930
Stolen from Steve on countless occasions.

167
00:09:58,014 --> 00:09:59,432
I broke Nellie's heart.

168
00:09:59,515 --> 00:10:00,558
Missed her wedding.

169
00:10:01,559 --> 00:10:03,978
I've even robbed my asshole
of a father.

170
00:10:04,061 --> 00:10:06,272
Though that one doesn't exactly
keep me up at night.

171
00:10:06,355 --> 00:10:08,733
Try stealing morphine from your mother
on her deathbed.

172
00:10:09,108 --> 00:10:11,402
Probably would've
but she didn't really give me a chance.

173
00:10:11,485 --> 00:10:13,112
At least you have other family,
you know?

174
00:10:13,613 --> 00:10:15,990
-Someone you can make amends to.
-Yeah.

175
00:10:16,365 --> 00:10:18,909
But I've done some shitty things, Joey.

176
00:10:19,118 --> 00:10:20,077
Who hasn't?

177
00:10:20,161 --> 00:10:21,996
I've been on the streets since I was 13.

178
00:10:22,079 --> 00:10:24,415
There aren't enough pages
in that notebook for all my shit.

179
00:10:24,498 --> 00:10:27,668
I never know how far back to go.
Like, do I cover high school?

180
00:10:28,210 --> 00:10:31,213
[inhales] Like stealing cash
out of my aunt's wallet for beer,

181
00:10:31,297 --> 00:10:35,676
or do I just start with "I briefly
lived in a haunted house".

182
00:10:40,473 --> 00:10:41,307
Hey.

183
00:10:42,892 --> 00:10:43,726
You okay?

184
00:10:44,685 --> 00:10:45,519
Yeah.

185
00:10:46,395 --> 00:10:48,356
Something's bothering you tonight.

186
00:10:48,439 --> 00:10:50,983
What could possibly be bothering me
in a place like this?

187
00:10:51,400 --> 00:10:53,653
You're nine months clean, Joey.

188
00:10:54,278 --> 00:10:55,988
Nine months.

189
00:10:56,572 --> 00:10:58,824
Your sobriety, it's full term.

190
00:10:58,908 --> 00:11:01,243
It's a fully-formed little baby anywhere.

191
00:11:01,702 --> 00:11:03,913
Nine months clean is a palace.
[buzzer]

192
00:11:03,996 --> 00:11:05,873
-Ten o'clock. Lights out.
-[exhales]

193
00:11:07,375 --> 00:11:08,751
Seriously, what's wrong?

194
00:11:16,509 --> 00:11:17,385
How's the step?

195
00:11:19,011 --> 00:11:20,388
You know. [clears throat]

196
00:11:20,888 --> 00:11:22,390
-Kicking my ass.
-[slight chuckle]

197
00:11:22,682 --> 00:11:24,016
Fourth one always does.

198
00:11:25,601 --> 00:11:27,603
I meant to tell you,
your brother called earlier.

199
00:11:28,979 --> 00:11:30,022
Steve called?

200
00:11:30,106 --> 00:11:33,109
-Yeah, wanted to know if you were here.
-That's typical.

201
00:11:33,442 --> 00:11:35,820
You should call him back tomorrow.
Tell him about your chip.

202
00:11:36,278 --> 00:11:37,655
Yeah, I don't know.

203
00:11:38,155 --> 00:11:40,950
He won't believe it. [exhales]

204
00:11:41,909 --> 00:11:43,035
They never do.

205
00:11:43,786 --> 00:11:45,371
-It's kind of their thing.
-I don't know.

206
00:11:45,788 --> 00:11:48,249
That sister of yours,
the one that dropped you off,

207
00:11:48,332 --> 00:11:50,668
she seemed to believe in you.
Tons, actually.

208
00:11:50,793 --> 00:11:51,836
Yeah, well...

209
00:11:52,461 --> 00:11:53,754
It's a twin thing.

210
00:11:54,422 --> 00:11:55,381
Ten o'clock, Joey.

211
00:11:55,506 --> 00:11:58,175
Yeah, yeah.
Back to the ladies' cell block.

212
00:12:03,431 --> 00:12:05,141
-Later.
-Goodnight.

213
00:12:24,618 --> 00:12:27,496
[shivers, gasps, pants]

214
00:12:43,304 --> 00:12:44,138
Go.

215
00:12:49,518 --> 00:12:50,519
[small grunt]

216
00:12:54,607 --> 00:12:56,400
[young Nell] Luke. You ready?

217
00:12:56,942 --> 00:12:57,818
Ready.

218
00:12:58,360 --> 00:13:01,238
I'm sending down three buttons.
You ready?

219
00:13:01,322 --> 00:13:02,448
I said I'm ready.

220
00:13:08,996 --> 00:13:10,247
Did you get 'em?

221
00:13:10,873 --> 00:13:12,875
I got two.

222
00:13:14,043 --> 00:13:15,169
I sent three.

223
00:13:15,294 --> 00:13:16,670
Well, I only got two.

224
00:13:16,879 --> 00:13:18,339
[young Nell] It must be stuck.

225
00:13:19,465 --> 00:13:22,510
Maybe we can drop some other stuff
to shake it loose.

226
00:13:22,718 --> 00:13:23,552
Like what?

227
00:13:25,262 --> 00:13:27,348
There were some rocks in the garden,
pretty ones.

228
00:13:27,598 --> 00:13:29,308
Abigail showed me one in...

229
00:13:29,683 --> 00:13:30,893
[button clattering]

230
00:13:33,604 --> 00:13:34,855
[old woman] Clara.

231
00:13:38,025 --> 00:13:39,985
[old woman] Clara.

232
00:13:42,279 --> 00:13:43,948
Was somebody else up there?

233
00:13:44,698 --> 00:13:45,616
Like who?

234
00:13:45,866 --> 00:13:47,576
Mrs. Dudley or Theo?

235
00:13:51,997 --> 00:13:52,915
You're scared.

236
00:13:53,499 --> 00:13:54,458
No, I'm not.

237
00:13:54,834 --> 00:13:56,252
-I can tell.
-How?

238
00:13:57,253 --> 00:13:58,671
Because I'm scared.

239
00:14:10,724 --> 00:14:12,560
Nellie, still down there?

240
00:14:12,643 --> 00:14:13,519
[young Nell] I'm here.

241
00:14:13,602 --> 00:14:14,645
I was right.

242
00:14:15,145 --> 00:14:16,188
There's nothing.

243
00:14:16,647 --> 00:14:18,816
It was probably just Theo...

244
00:14:19,275 --> 00:14:20,359
messing around.

245
00:14:23,696 --> 00:14:25,322
[growl]

246
00:14:26,323 --> 00:14:27,199
[gasps]

247
00:14:32,663 --> 00:14:34,665
Nellie!

248
00:14:37,459 --> 00:14:38,377
[effort grunt]

249
00:14:38,878 --> 00:14:39,837
Jesus.

250
00:14:40,337 --> 00:14:43,132
[female PA announcer] Seven a.m. Breakfast
in ten minutes.

251
00:14:55,102 --> 00:14:57,021
[woman] As you've all heard by now...

252
00:14:57,187 --> 00:14:59,356
Joey chose to leave treatment
in the middle of the night.

253
00:15:01,191 --> 00:15:03,652
This is what happens
when we forget why we're here.

254
00:15:04,111 --> 00:15:06,405
I know we're all going to have
a lot of feelings about that.

255
00:15:06,488 --> 00:15:07,865
Some more than others.

256
00:15:08,908 --> 00:15:11,160
This is a moment we should all
pay attention to,

257
00:15:11,243 --> 00:15:12,703
especially you newbies here.

258
00:15:13,162 --> 00:15:16,206
There's a reason
why the program encourages us

259
00:15:16,290 --> 00:15:18,709
to stay out of personal
relationships the first year.

260
00:15:18,792 --> 00:15:20,628
We're not in a relationship.

261
00:15:20,711 --> 00:15:22,212
Any kind of relationship.

262
00:15:22,796 --> 00:15:24,965
We can get real close to people
in recovery.

263
00:15:25,049 --> 00:15:26,050
We're friends.

264
00:15:26,133 --> 00:15:29,011
How the fuck do you expect people
to get through this without friends?

265
00:15:29,094 --> 00:15:29,929
We don't.

266
00:15:30,012 --> 00:15:32,848
One of the biggest issues that can
sometimes happen and just...

267
00:15:32,932 --> 00:15:33,766
sometimes...

268
00:15:34,099 --> 00:15:37,311
and I'm not saying this about
you, Luke, is we can

269
00:15:37,394 --> 00:15:40,814
start to hang our recovery on
someone else instead of on ourselves.

270
00:15:41,398 --> 00:15:44,443
And you lean too hard
on another addict? Shit.

271
00:15:45,027 --> 00:15:47,237
We didn't all end up in here
'cause we're so reliable.

272
00:15:50,115 --> 00:15:52,034
-Luke.
-I'm fine.

273
00:15:52,201 --> 00:15:53,118
Luke.

274
00:15:53,869 --> 00:15:55,788
I'm just getting some air. [clears throat]

275
00:15:56,914 --> 00:15:57,748
Fuck.

276
00:16:10,386 --> 00:16:11,637
[sighs]

277
00:16:13,305 --> 00:16:14,723
[exhales]

278
00:16:26,318 --> 00:16:27,152
Luke.

279
00:16:29,279 --> 00:16:30,948
Luke, you okay in there?

280
00:16:46,714 --> 00:16:48,465
Hi, this is Nell. Please leave a
message after the beep.

281
00:16:48,549 --> 00:16:51,468
[Luke] Hey, hey, it's, uh, it's me.
Uh...

282
00:16:53,512 --> 00:16:55,556
I... I had a moment. Um...

283
00:16:56,181 --> 00:16:57,683
Last night, one of those.

284
00:16:59,435 --> 00:17:01,520
You know what I'm talking about.

285
00:17:02,229 --> 00:17:05,024
I just wanted to make sure
that you were okay.

286
00:17:08,277 --> 00:17:12,948
I, uh, I don't have a phone...
and you won't reach me at the center.

287
00:17:13,032 --> 00:17:16,452
But, you can call there and leave
me a message there.

288
00:17:16,535 --> 00:17:18,037
I should be back by tonight.

289
00:17:18,287 --> 00:17:19,788
I just have to find a friend.

290
00:17:21,248 --> 00:17:24,001
And don't... don't worry.
I'm fine.

291
00:17:24,668 --> 00:17:25,794
I just...

292
00:17:26,587 --> 00:17:28,380
I just wanted to be sure
you're okay.

293
00:17:29,381 --> 00:17:30,340
You know.

294
00:17:31,300 --> 00:17:32,259
Yeah, okay.

295
00:17:54,823 --> 00:17:56,241
[indistinct chatter]

296
00:18:21,767 --> 00:18:23,018
[dog barking]

297
00:18:31,318 --> 00:18:32,569
[barking continues]

298
00:18:36,532 --> 00:18:37,783
[dog whimpers]

299
00:18:39,118 --> 00:18:40,077
[grunts]

300
00:20:10,751 --> 00:20:12,461
[door creaks]

301
00:20:42,157 --> 00:20:43,367
[door creaks]

302
00:21:07,724 --> 00:21:09,142
[breathing shakily]

303
00:21:11,937 --> 00:21:14,231
[small pants, gasps]

304
00:21:15,274 --> 00:21:16,108
[thud]

305
00:21:18,568 --> 00:21:19,486
[gaps]

306
00:21:34,710 --> 00:21:35,585

00:23:03,256 --> 00:23:05,133
-[car honking]
-Fuck you.

313
00:23:05,550 --> 00:23:06,968
[pants]

314
00:23:07,552 --> 00:23:08,929
[man] Learn how to drive.

315
00:23:18,563 --> 00:23:19,940
[indistinct chatter]

316
00:23:48,802 --> 00:23:49,636
Hey.

317
00:23:50,637 --> 00:23:51,638
Hey.

318
00:23:53,390 --> 00:23:55,016
How'd you know where to find me?

319
00:23:57,394 --> 00:23:58,645
I know your spots.

320
00:24:00,814 --> 00:24:03,275
Hey, hey, it's okay.

321
00:24:03,358 --> 00:24:04,776
Come on, it's okay.

322
00:24:05,193 --> 00:24:08,530
I found her. We're coming back.
We can be there in 20 minutes.

323
00:24:08,613 --> 00:24:11,783
This isn't a hotel, Luke.
You know that... we're full up

324
00:24:11,867 --> 00:24:14,453
and we need these beds for people
who actually want to get well.

325
00:24:14,578 --> 00:24:16,580
You run, you give up your spot.
That's the way it is.

326
00:24:16,663 --> 00:24:18,331
Please, Paige. Please.

327
00:24:18,707 --> 00:24:20,542
Your best bet is gonna
be a shelter.

328
00:24:20,917 --> 00:24:24,629
That's the last place she should be.
She'll cop, she's already...

329
00:24:25,338 --> 00:24:26,256
[exhales]

330
00:24:26,673 --> 00:24:29,885
Look, I need a place where she can
come down safe.

331
00:24:30,260 --> 00:24:32,429
Ah, fuck, Luke. I...

332
00:24:34,890 --> 00:24:35,765
I'm sorry.

333
00:24:36,600 --> 00:24:38,477
[Paige] But you did it to yourselves.

334
00:24:39,478 --> 00:24:40,312
Fuck.

335
00:24:44,191 --> 00:24:46,610
She's right.
I knew the rules when I left.

336
00:24:49,821 --> 00:24:50,780
You okay?

337
00:24:52,407 --> 00:24:53,241
Yeah.

338
00:24:54,409 --> 00:24:57,037
Just, I slept on it funny last night.

339
00:24:59,080 --> 00:25:01,082
I told you not to follow me.
Why did you?

340
00:25:03,293 --> 00:25:05,003
[indistinct chatter]

341
00:25:06,588 --> 00:25:07,547
I'm sorry.

342
00:25:12,219 --> 00:25:13,053
[sniffles]

343
00:25:13,386 --> 00:25:15,680
It's just, you gotta go back.

344
00:25:15,805 --> 00:25:18,099
Just 'cause I messed up,
doesn't mean you have to.

345
00:25:18,183 --> 00:25:19,267
I got an idea.

346
00:25:20,185 --> 00:25:23,563
-If I can get you a motel, then--
-Do you have money?

347
00:25:25,690 --> 00:25:27,442
-No.
-Can you get money?

348
00:25:29,736 --> 00:25:31,571
-What about your sisters or your brother?
-No.

349
00:25:31,655 --> 00:25:33,198
Do you think you can call them?

350
00:25:33,281 --> 00:25:34,699
I'll get some. Okay?

351
00:25:35,909 --> 00:25:39,788
And I'm gonna fix this. I'm gonna get us
a place to stay tonight.

352
00:25:40,789 --> 00:25:41,873
Tomorrow, too.

353
00:25:42,332 --> 00:25:44,042
And I'm gonna get you clean again.

354
00:25:45,001 --> 00:25:47,963
And I'm gonna be right here,
right there with you.

355
00:25:49,297 --> 00:25:51,341
All the way,
just like you were for me, okay?

356
00:25:53,385 --> 00:25:55,220
And we're gonna find a new place.

357
00:25:56,680 --> 00:25:57,639
I promise.

358
00:26:04,980 --> 00:26:06,231
You got anything left?

359
00:26:11,611 --> 00:26:12,529
Yeah.

360
00:26:21,079 --> 00:26:22,914
That should get us most of the way.

361
00:26:29,671 --> 00:26:31,339
Come on.

362
00:26:34,509 --> 00:26:36,136
You got some balls, man.

363
00:26:36,344 --> 00:26:38,179
How long do you wait this morning?

364
00:26:38,305 --> 00:26:39,556
Before hopping the wall?

365
00:26:39,889 --> 00:26:40,849
Oh, not long.

366
00:26:41,516 --> 00:26:43,518
I still can't believe you came after me.

367
00:26:45,103 --> 00:26:47,063
Well, my sister kind of told me to.

368
00:26:48,690 --> 00:26:50,692
No, not really. She...

369
00:26:52,694 --> 00:26:56,197
We're kind of in each other's heads.
It's been like that since we were kids.

370
00:26:57,157 --> 00:26:59,534
It's a twin thing. [exhales]

371
00:27:00,076 --> 00:27:01,411
You know, once I...

372
00:27:01,995 --> 00:27:03,204
Once I broke my foot...

373
00:27:04,539 --> 00:27:05,457
and...

374
00:27:05,749 --> 00:27:08,376
and Nell called me a few minutes later,
and she was just...

375
00:27:09,085 --> 00:27:12,756
she was just watching TV and her
ankle just went nuts. [chuckles]

376
00:27:13,256 --> 00:27:14,674
-It hurt like hell.
-[chuckles]

377
00:27:14,758 --> 00:27:16,885
She had no idea why.
She iced it for an hour.

378
00:27:16,968 --> 00:27:18,678
-Bullshit.
-No, it's a true story.

379
00:27:19,220 --> 00:27:20,055
[slight chuckle]

380
00:27:22,307 --> 00:27:23,892
You know, there are... [clears throat]

381
00:27:25,810 --> 00:27:28,271
There are moments
you kind of remind me of her.

382
00:27:30,899 --> 00:27:31,733
And she...

383
00:27:33,652 --> 00:27:36,112
You know, she's always believed in me.

384
00:27:36,196 --> 00:27:37,030
Not...

385
00:27:37,530 --> 00:27:39,658
The rest of the family,
not so much, but...

386
00:27:39,783 --> 00:27:42,827
the only other person that believed in me
like that was you.

387
00:27:43,244 --> 00:27:44,496
[slight chuckle]

388
00:27:45,705 --> 00:27:47,207
So yeah, of course I came.

389
00:27:47,874 --> 00:27:49,834
It's what she would've done for me.

390
00:27:54,631 --> 00:27:55,965
Fuck. [sighs]

391
00:27:56,841 --> 00:27:57,676
You okay?

392
00:27:59,010 --> 00:28:00,011
Yeah, I'm...

393
00:28:00,804 --> 00:28:02,263
I don't know, I'm cold.

394
00:28:03,973 --> 00:28:06,893
Listen, when we get there,
just hang back.

395
00:28:07,477 --> 00:28:08,978
I don't want her to see your eyes.

396
00:28:09,896 --> 00:28:11,398
-She'll know, okay?
-Yeah.

397
00:28:13,525 --> 00:28:15,568
[sighs] She always fucking knows.

398
00:28:18,363 --> 00:28:20,490
[dogs barking at a distance]

399
00:28:29,791 --> 00:28:31,501
[doorbell rings]

400
00:28:40,260 --> 00:28:42,220
-Luke.
-Hey, Leigh.
401
00:28:42,679 --> 00:28:43,680
How you doing?

402
00:28:45,390 --> 00:28:48,643
This is a... surprise. [slight chuckle]

403
00:28:49,519 --> 00:28:50,645
Ah, what are you...

404
00:28:52,230 --> 00:28:53,606
-How are you?
-I'm good.

405
00:28:53,898 --> 00:28:57,944
Ah, I'm really, really good.
Ninety days good, in fact.

406
00:28:58,027 --> 00:28:59,112
That's really great.

407
00:29:00,363 --> 00:29:01,990
I can tell, you look different.

408
00:29:02,532 --> 00:29:03,616
Thank you.

409
00:29:04,284 --> 00:29:07,829
So good, I got a day pass.
Is Steve here?

410
00:29:08,163 --> 00:29:09,330
No, he isn't.

411
00:29:09,414 --> 00:29:11,583
Is he-- Well, is he coming back soon?

412
00:29:11,666 --> 00:29:13,835
I just kinda need to talk to him
about something.

413
00:29:13,918 --> 00:29:15,128
He didn't tell you.

414
00:29:15,712 --> 00:29:16,629
Tell me what?

415
00:29:17,005 --> 00:29:19,257
No, Steve is not coming back soon.
Maybe ever.

416
00:29:19,340 --> 00:29:20,759
He doesn't live here anymore.

417
00:29:21,217 --> 00:29:22,844
Wait, what?

418
00:29:24,053 --> 00:29:25,430
We separated a month ago.

419
00:29:27,974 --> 00:29:29,100
Why?

420
00:29:29,893 --> 00:29:31,895
I would really rather not get into that.

421
00:29:36,524 --> 00:29:37,442
Okay.

422
00:29:41,404 --> 00:29:43,448
Listen, I'm-- I'm clean.

423
00:29:44,574 --> 00:29:47,535
-Ninety days, like I said.
-And I said that's great.

424
00:29:50,288 --> 00:29:52,832
-Leigh, I need to borrow some money.
-Jesus, Luke.

425
00:29:52,916 --> 00:29:54,667
No, it's not like that. I just--

426
00:29:54,751 --> 00:29:57,337
We have been through this
over and over.

427
00:29:57,420 --> 00:30:00,298
It's for a hotel. Or if you could just
let us stay here--

428
00:30:00,381 --> 00:30:02,884
You know you can't do that.
You know that.

429
00:30:04,719 --> 00:30:05,595
Okay.

430
00:30:07,514 --> 00:30:08,973
Okay, can you...

431
00:30:10,058 --> 00:30:12,560
Can you just give me
Steve's address then, please?

432
00:30:13,436 --> 00:30:14,813
I think he's out of town.

433
00:30:17,065 --> 00:30:18,650
I mean, even if he wasn't.

434
00:30:20,276 --> 00:30:22,570
I am proud of you, I am.

435
00:30:23,279 --> 00:30:24,948
But you have to talk to Steven.

436
00:30:25,865 --> 00:30:27,534
You know what he's going to say.

437
00:30:27,784 --> 00:30:30,495
[inhales] I really can't deal with
this right now.

438
00:30:30,620 --> 00:30:32,580
-[laughing]
-Things are bad enough.

439
00:30:33,289 --> 00:30:34,999
-You're not serious.
-I am.

440
00:30:36,376 --> 00:30:37,919
They'll hang a toy phone around
your neck

441
00:30:38,002 --> 00:30:40,213
and you have to wear it all day,
maybe longer.

442
00:30:40,296 --> 00:30:42,048
Like a child's toy phone?

443
00:30:42,131 --> 00:30:45,301
Yes, it's like The Scarlet Letter
for violating the phone rule.

444
00:30:45,385 --> 00:30:49,055
Improper use of a phone.
They catch you, you wear the phone, like

445
00:30:49,138 --> 00:30:51,933
"Let this be a chilling example
to the others."

446
00:30:52,016 --> 00:30:53,059
[all laughing]

447
00:30:53,309 --> 00:30:54,227
You...

448
00:30:54,686 --> 00:30:58,690
You can't make calls in the first 30 days
unless a caseworker signs off, so...

449
00:30:58,773 --> 00:31:02,610
-Well, that's a little harsh, isn't it?
-It's not as harsh as an overdose.

450
00:31:03,862 --> 00:31:05,113
I mean, addicts, we're...

451
00:31:05,655 --> 00:31:07,949
we're pretty slippery in early recovery.

452
00:31:08,032 --> 00:31:10,368
That's why they confiscate
our cell phones, you know,

453
00:31:10,869 --> 00:31:12,871
in case someone was to call
a connection.

454
00:31:12,954 --> 00:31:13,913
Yeah.

455
00:31:14,038 --> 00:31:15,707
What if you want to call your mom?

456
00:31:15,790 --> 00:31:18,501
For some folks in there,
their connection is their mom.

457
00:31:18,585 --> 00:31:19,752
-Truly.
-It's true.

458
00:31:19,878 --> 00:31:21,004
[all chuckling]

459
00:31:25,174 --> 00:31:26,467
So...

460
00:31:27,010 --> 00:31:28,511
Luke tells me you're a writer.

461
00:31:30,054 --> 00:31:32,348
He did?
I'm surprised he mentioned it.

462
00:31:33,057 --> 00:31:34,851
Where do you get your ideas from?

463
00:31:38,104 --> 00:31:40,607
I write about haunted houses, mostly.

464
00:31:41,024 --> 00:31:43,943
And haunted people.
I'm afraid there's no shortage of them.

465
00:31:44,277 --> 00:31:45,486
Must run in the family.

466
00:31:45,570 --> 00:31:47,447
I mean, Luke's a great writer, too.

467
00:31:47,530 --> 00:31:48,615
-Yeah?
-Yeah.

468
00:31:48,740 --> 00:31:49,657
No, I'm not.

469
00:31:49,741 --> 00:31:52,535
[laughs] Stop selling yourself short.
He's really talented.

470
00:31:52,619 --> 00:31:54,871
You should show them the one about...

471
00:31:54,954 --> 00:31:58,166
the short story with
the imaginary little friend in the garden.

472
00:31:58,249 --> 00:32:00,251
-The one-- Do you know that one?
-Yeah.

473
00:32:00,543 --> 00:32:02,253
-Abigail.
-Yeah. [chuckles]

474
00:32:02,378 --> 00:32:04,213
I put her in one of my books, too.

475
00:32:04,672 --> 00:32:07,550
Something tells me
Luke won't get as much blow back for his.

476
00:32:09,218 --> 00:32:11,012
It's just an essay.

477
00:32:11,095 --> 00:32:12,639
It's not anything, you know.

478
00:32:12,722 --> 00:32:14,265
I keep telling him
he should publish it.

479
00:32:15,016 --> 00:32:16,059
Off his name alone.

480
00:32:16,476 --> 00:32:18,561
Maybe get a sweet place
like this for himself.

481
00:32:18,853 --> 00:32:20,688
I mean, you guys--
This is so awesome.

482
00:32:20,772 --> 00:32:22,815
You guys got it all, man. [chuckles]

483
00:32:22,982 --> 00:32:24,567
Where do you go from here?

484
00:32:25,568 --> 00:32:27,487
Nothing left to do except...
[inhales deeply]

485
00:32:27,612 --> 00:32:29,906
maybe fill this place up with some kids,
I guess.

486
00:32:32,617 --> 00:32:33,618
[sighs]

487
00:32:34,410 --> 00:32:36,454
So is this your first rehab, Joey?

488
00:32:36,621 --> 00:32:38,414
Ah, it's far from it.

489
00:32:39,374 --> 00:32:41,793
But some of us are addicted
to treatment centers, huh?

490
00:32:42,794 --> 00:32:44,462
Not Luke's first rodeo either.

491
00:32:45,588 --> 00:32:48,091
So what's different this time?
Something must be.

492
00:32:48,174 --> 00:32:50,385
I mean, you know the definition
of insanity.

493
00:32:50,468 --> 00:32:51,302
Steve.

494
00:32:51,386 --> 00:32:53,304
"Doing the same thing over and over--"

495
00:32:53,388 --> 00:32:56,140
"...and expecting different results."
Sure, man.

496
00:32:56,599 --> 00:32:58,685
They're all different, though.
Every day is different.

497
00:32:58,768 --> 00:33:02,730
Every craving is different.
Every meeting is different.

498
00:33:03,189 --> 00:33:05,692
Right. I'm not trying to suggest
you're not taking this seriously.

499
00:33:05,817 --> 00:33:06,651
Oh...

500
00:33:06,859 --> 00:33:07,819
And I'm just...

501
00:33:08,069 --> 00:33:09,112
This time around...

502
00:33:10,029 --> 00:33:11,614
I'm just speaking for myself, like...

503
00:33:12,323 --> 00:33:13,491
Like, I got more support.

504
00:33:14,701 --> 00:33:16,160
And I'm giving more support.

505
00:33:16,953 --> 00:33:17,829
So...

506
00:33:18,788 --> 00:33:20,581
in a sense, I guess you could say...

507
00:33:21,082 --> 00:33:23,209
it looks like the same thing
over and over again,

508
00:33:23,292 --> 00:33:24,711
but that's not insanity.

509
00:33:25,128 --> 00:33:27,255
Out there on the streets,
that's insanity.

510
00:33:27,964 --> 00:33:28,881
Of course.

511
00:33:29,882 --> 00:33:31,968
So that's what recovery is, you know?

512
00:33:32,051 --> 00:33:34,679
It's the same thing
over and over again,

513
00:33:34,762 --> 00:33:36,597
in spite of the result, or...

514
00:33:36,889 --> 00:33:37,890
in spite of

515
00:33:38,433 --> 00:33:41,436
a backslide or in spite of a full-fledged
fucking relapse.

516
00:33:43,896 --> 00:33:46,441
Doesn't mean you stop just 'cause
it gets a little repetitive.

517
00:33:47,525 --> 00:33:48,651
One day at a time.

518
00:33:50,486 --> 00:33:51,821
When we decide to get clean,

519
00:33:51,904 --> 00:33:54,699
it's not because we expect it
to be fucking exciting, you know?

520
00:34:02,999 --> 00:34:05,460
Is it normal to bring a friend home
on a day pass?

521
00:34:05,585 --> 00:34:06,419
Yeah.

522
00:34:06,919 --> 00:34:08,004
It happens.

523
00:34:08,379 --> 00:34:11,549
-I just never really felt like it before.
-You must like her.

524
00:34:12,467 --> 00:34:13,676
I admire her.

525
00:34:14,594 --> 00:34:15,428
Don't you?

526
00:34:16,596 --> 00:34:18,598
I feel like she's got her shit together.

527
00:34:18,806 --> 00:34:21,392
I'd think you'd want me to take a page
out of a book like that.

528
00:34:21,476 --> 00:34:24,353
Look, I get it. She's charming.

529
00:34:25,396 --> 00:34:27,148
She's articulate, she's funny.

530
00:34:27,648 --> 00:34:30,068
-Yeah.
-Disarming, you might say.

531
00:34:30,610 --> 00:34:32,153
You might even say "slick."

532
00:34:34,072 --> 00:34:34,906
Slick?

533
00:34:35,698 --> 00:34:36,866
Just saying.

534
00:34:37,492 --> 00:34:39,035
You know she stayed up with me.

535
00:34:39,702 --> 00:34:41,746
That first week when I was coming down.

536
00:34:42,205 --> 00:34:43,956
You ever seen someone
in withdrawal, Steve?

537
00:34:44,040 --> 00:34:44,957
Nope.

538
00:34:45,666 --> 00:34:46,667
Well, it's hell.

539
00:34:47,376 --> 00:34:48,211
It's...

540
00:34:48,878 --> 00:34:50,546
You're freezing all the time.

541
00:34:50,630 --> 00:34:53,508
LA in July, no air conditioning,
freezing.

542
00:34:53,758 --> 00:34:56,552
Muscle aches, stiff as boards,
nausea, shakes.

543
00:34:56,677 --> 00:34:58,471
-I wouldn't know.
-Well, she does.

544
00:34:58,554 --> 00:34:59,764
Because she was there.

545
00:35:00,431 --> 00:35:02,558
And she talked me through it,
she rode it out with me.

546
00:35:03,559 --> 00:35:05,436
Wow. Awesome.

547
00:35:07,313 --> 00:35:08,815
Fuck. Steve.

548
00:35:09,899 --> 00:35:12,985
I'm not-- I'm not asking
for her hand in marriage.

549
00:35:13,069 --> 00:35:16,072
I just wanted to bring a friend to dinner
and you're not giving her a chance.

550
00:35:16,155 --> 00:35:17,156
No, I guess I'm not.

551
00:35:17,240 --> 00:35:19,033
-Why not?
-I'm fresh out of those.

552
00:35:20,493 --> 00:35:21,702
I gave 'em all to you.

553
00:35:23,412 --> 00:35:24,330
Wow.

554
00:35:24,914 --> 00:35:28,042
-I just want you to be careful, is all.
-I'm doing good, Steve.

555
00:35:28,126 --> 00:35:31,295
Anyway, she's a good person,
she's a good influence.

556
00:35:31,379 --> 00:35:32,255
[slight chuckle]

557
00:35:32,338 --> 00:35:35,925
Just because someone's a good person,
just because you care about them...

558
00:35:36,551 --> 00:35:38,219
doesn't mean they won't burn you.

559
00:35:39,679 --> 00:35:41,222
You're a good person, Luke.

560
00:35:41,305 --> 00:35:42,223
And I love you.

561
00:35:43,432 --> 00:35:44,350
And...

562
00:35:44,809 --> 00:35:45,643
you know.

563
00:35:48,521 --> 00:35:49,480
Thanks, Steve.

564
00:35:51,899 --> 00:35:54,944
You know, I'm so glad we got to share
this milestone.

565
00:35:55,778 --> 00:35:59,073
That's all I wanted. Thirty days clean
so you can make me feel like shit again.

566
00:36:01,742 --> 00:36:03,327
-Luke.
-Fuck you.

567
00:36:15,214 --> 00:36:16,132
[shivers]

568
00:36:16,215 --> 00:36:18,759
Jesus, Steve.
It's fucking freezing in here.

569
00:36:38,070 --> 00:36:39,697
[sirens wailing]

570
00:36:42,867 --> 00:36:44,577
Fother mucker.

571
00:36:49,582 --> 00:36:50,583
[sighs]

572
00:36:53,711 --> 00:36:54,545
Hey, Luke.

573
00:36:57,798 --> 00:36:58,925
Hey... Hey, Steve.

574
00:37:03,804 --> 00:37:05,723
This isn't what it looks like.

575
00:37:07,099 --> 00:37:08,100
Are you cold?

576
00:37:08,351 --> 00:37:09,185
Yeah.

577
00:37:10,978 --> 00:37:12,396
How'd you know where to find me?

578
00:37:15,900 --> 00:37:18,861
Tell you what, I've got 200 bucks here.

579
00:37:19,278 --> 00:37:20,446
You hand me that iPad,

580
00:37:20,529 --> 00:37:22,990
you can keep the cash
and sell that old camera.

581
00:37:23,658 --> 00:37:25,243
But, I need the iPad.

582
00:37:25,993 --> 00:37:26,953
It stays here.

583
00:37:36,337 --> 00:37:37,171
Hey.

584
00:37:38,130 --> 00:37:39,006
Hey.

585
00:37:39,423 --> 00:37:41,676
Oh my God, I saw him walking in.
I thought you were fucked.

586
00:37:41,759 --> 00:37:42,677
It's all good.

587
00:37:46,097 --> 00:37:47,890
Should be enough for a night,
maybe two.

588
00:37:48,683 --> 00:37:50,351
And some food. Oh, here.

589
00:37:54,021 --> 00:37:55,314
Amazing, Luke.

590
00:37:55,606 --> 00:37:57,024
[stammering] Amazing.

591
00:37:58,442 --> 00:38:01,529
Goddammit, it's cold tonight.
Are you cold?

592
00:38:02,947 --> 00:38:04,198
Where are we? Seventh?

593
00:38:04,282 --> 00:38:05,491
Yeah, almost.

594
00:38:05,574 --> 00:38:06,951
It's a few more blocks.

595
00:38:07,034 --> 00:38:09,662
I want a clean hotel,
no junkies on the sidewalk.

596
00:38:09,745 --> 00:38:12,498
Man, I don't know if I'm gonna make it
a couple blocks without a piss.

597
00:38:13,791 --> 00:38:15,126
I'll just...

598
00:38:15,209 --> 00:38:17,878
pop into the little junkies' room
and be back in a minute.

599
00:38:23,301 --> 00:38:24,135
Baby.

600
00:38:25,720 --> 00:38:26,762
You got a fever?

601
00:38:27,221 --> 00:38:28,514
Yeah, maybe.

602
00:38:30,599 --> 00:38:32,893
It's my arms and legs, you know?
Muscle aches.

603
00:38:32,977 --> 00:38:34,145
No, I'm fine.

604
00:38:34,854 --> 00:38:36,063
Hey, I...

605
00:38:37,315 --> 00:38:38,274
Thank you.

606
00:38:41,027 --> 00:38:42,028
For coming after me.

607
00:38:43,029 --> 00:38:43,904
Oh.

608
00:38:45,239 --> 00:38:46,073
It means a lot.

609
00:38:47,408 --> 00:38:48,326
You're welcome.

610
00:38:55,541 --> 00:38:56,709
[slight chuckle]

611
00:38:58,210 --> 00:38:59,211
It's all right.

612
00:39:04,759 --> 00:39:05,676
[smacks kiss]

613
00:39:08,179 --> 00:39:09,263
What are you doing?

614
00:39:10,723 --> 00:39:11,807
Be back in a flash.

615
00:39:15,936 --> 00:39:16,771
Okay.

616
00:39:39,418 --> 00:39:41,379
Come on, let's-- let's keep going.

617
00:39:49,053 --> 00:39:49,887
Joey.

618
00:39:58,270 --> 00:39:59,105
Joey.

619
00:40:08,531 --> 00:40:09,448
Fuck.

620
00:40:10,366 --> 00:40:11,242
Joey!

621
00:40:16,664 --> 00:40:17,498
Joey!

622
00:40:18,666 --> 00:40:20,167
[exhales]

623
00:40:26,298 --> 00:40:27,258
Joey!

624
00:41:14,388 --> 00:41:15,556
Luke, addict.

625
00:41:16,223 --> 00:41:17,766
-[crowd] Hi, Luke.
-Hi.

626
00:41:18,976 --> 00:41:22,521
I actually don't know
what I want to say here.

627
00:41:22,897 --> 00:41:24,106
You know, I've...

628
00:41:24,398 --> 00:41:26,275
I've never had this much time before.

629
00:41:26,567 --> 00:41:27,693
You know, 90 days.

630
00:41:29,778 --> 00:41:31,030
[sighs, slight chuckle]

631
00:41:32,490 --> 00:41:33,324
Um...

632
00:41:37,286 --> 00:41:38,496
So here goes.

633
00:41:39,622 --> 00:41:43,501
It's taken me ten years
to get 90 days clean.

634
00:41:44,585 --> 00:41:49,256
And I'm starting step four,
which is always the one that does me in.

635
00:41:50,883 --> 00:41:53,469
"A fearless moral inventory."

636
00:41:56,305 --> 00:42:00,017
Now, I've been called a lot of things
in my life,

637
00:42:00,100 --> 00:42:03,312
but "fearless" is not one of them.

638
00:42:04,897 --> 00:42:07,942
[Luke] You know, I was always
a scared little kid,

639
00:42:08,692 --> 00:42:09,652
and I thought...

640
00:42:10,486 --> 00:42:14,114
I thought I'd get braver
as I got older, but...

641
00:42:15,032 --> 00:42:16,242
um, I didn't.

642
00:42:17,660 --> 00:42:18,702
I, um...

643
00:42:20,579 --> 00:42:22,081
I just got scared of anything.

644
00:42:24,875 --> 00:42:28,963
My mom committed suicide
when I was six years old.

645
00:42:30,005 --> 00:42:33,300
And my siblings and I
were sent to live with our aunt,

646
00:42:33,384 --> 00:42:37,179
and, I mean, I was just a kid, you know.
I didn't...

647
00:42:38,514 --> 00:42:40,724
I didn't really understand death yet.

648
00:42:40,808 --> 00:42:45,187
So, I guess I just expected her to...

649
00:42:46,897 --> 00:42:47,731
to come back.

650
00:42:51,902 --> 00:42:53,445
And every night, I'd...

651
00:42:55,197 --> 00:42:58,367
I'd stare out my window as the cars
came around the corner,

652
00:42:58,450 --> 00:43:02,538
just hoping that one would stop
and my mom would step out,

653
00:43:02,621 --> 00:43:04,290
you know, to come take me home.

654
00:43:05,040 --> 00:43:07,459
Every time I saw those headlights
come round the corner,

655
00:43:07,543 --> 00:43:09,712
I'd sit up in bed...

656
00:43:09,795 --> 00:43:13,424
and I'm staring out of my window,
just full of hope.

657
00:43:14,216 --> 00:43:17,636
One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven. [exhales]

658
00:43:19,513 --> 00:43:21,599
But they'd just keep driving.

659
00:43:23,058 --> 00:43:23,976
[chuckles]

660
00:43:26,895 --> 00:43:28,897
Those tail lights, they were the worst.

661
00:43:29,982 --> 00:43:32,526
Red eyes in the dark,
just taking hope with them.

662
00:43:35,988 --> 00:43:37,197
I mean, Mom...

663
00:43:37,573 --> 00:43:39,158
she never came back, of course,

664
00:43:39,241 --> 00:43:41,285
but other things
from when I was a kid,

665
00:43:41,785 --> 00:43:42,953
they came back.

666
00:43:43,203 --> 00:43:44,622
And I guess that's...

667
00:43:45,956 --> 00:43:49,126
I guess that's why I started using
in the first place, you know?

668
00:43:50,294 --> 00:43:51,629
To keep those things away.

669
00:43:56,508 --> 00:43:58,677
And I'd get clean...

670
00:43:58,761 --> 00:44:00,262
you know, a week, a month.

671
00:44:01,305 --> 00:44:04,975
But I'd always feel 'em, you know,
just sneaking back up on me.

672
00:44:05,684 --> 00:44:08,187
-So I'd use.
-He's not real.

673
00:44:08,687 --> 00:44:10,981
You know, my family,
they're not gonna believe this.

674
00:44:11,065 --> 00:44:12,524
They never really believe me.

675
00:44:12,900 --> 00:44:14,443
And I don't blame them.

676
00:44:14,526 --> 00:44:18,238
You know, I fucked them over
so many times. Lied, stole.

677
00:44:19,490 --> 00:44:22,076
Come on, you all know what I mean.
[slight chuckle]

678
00:44:24,495 --> 00:44:25,621
And I guess...

679
00:44:29,500 --> 00:44:30,584
I guess I'll...

680
00:44:32,294 --> 00:44:36,340
I'll never know how it felt for them
to be done like that.

681
00:44:39,760 --> 00:44:40,761
I hope I never know.

682
00:44:44,348 --> 00:44:46,266
[sighs] Ah, sorry.

683
00:44:46,350 --> 00:44:49,019
I want to thank my caseworker, Paige.

684
00:44:50,396 --> 00:44:52,356
And every one at our recovery house.

685
00:44:53,023 --> 00:44:54,858
And someone... [sniffs]

686
00:44:55,651 --> 00:44:59,029
Someone special,
who's always had my back.

687
00:44:59,905 --> 00:45:00,864
Thank you.

688
00:45:02,074 --> 00:45:03,242
Any addict alone...

689
00:45:04,410 --> 00:45:05,953
...is in bad company.

690
00:45:06,328 --> 00:45:07,913
That's right. [chuckles]

691
00:45:08,664 --> 00:45:09,498
Thank you.

692
00:45:18,757 --> 00:45:20,175
I couldn't help her.

693
00:45:21,885 --> 00:45:23,595
[Paige] We've been waiting
for you to call.

694
00:45:23,971 --> 00:45:25,764
There's something I need to tell you.

695
00:45:25,848 --> 00:45:28,392
Listen, I know I fucked up. Okay?

696
00:45:29,268 --> 00:45:31,812
But I... I didn't use, I didn't.

697
00:45:31,937 --> 00:45:34,148
[stutters] And I'm so fucking cold,

698
00:45:34,231 --> 00:45:37,067
and my... [shivers] and my arms and legs
are so stiff.

699
00:45:37,151 --> 00:45:38,152
I just, I...

700
00:45:39,611 --> 00:45:42,197
I... I need a bed. Like, a couch.

701
00:45:42,281 --> 00:45:45,451
I'll sleep on the goddamn floor.
Just... [shivers] please.

702
00:45:45,534 --> 00:45:48,370
[Luke] Please, please let me come back.
Please.

703
00:45:49,329 --> 00:45:51,331
Where are you?
We'll come get you.

704
00:45:53,208 --> 00:45:56,545
One, two, three, four,

705
00:45:56,628 --> 00:45:59,089
five, six, seven.

706
00:46:01,925 --> 00:46:06,889
One, two, three, four, five, six,

707
00:46:06,972 --> 00:46:07,848
seven.

708
00:46:13,270 --> 00:46:14,605
[young Nell whimpering]

709
00:46:23,781 --> 00:46:24,656
Hey.

710
00:46:26,450 --> 00:46:27,493
You're awake.

711
00:46:27,868 --> 00:46:29,453
Well, yeah, 'cause...

712
00:46:29,703 --> 00:46:30,704
you're awake.

713
00:46:31,288 --> 00:46:32,748
I saw her again.

714
00:46:34,291 --> 00:46:35,542
The Bent-Neck Lady?

715
00:46:47,513 --> 00:46:49,431
Mommy and Daddy don't believe me.

716
00:46:50,682 --> 00:46:51,558
Ever.

717
00:46:53,894 --> 00:46:56,605
They say she's a nightmare,
but she's real.

718
00:46:56,688 --> 00:46:58,190
I know she is.

719
00:47:00,734 --> 00:47:01,985
I got an idea.

720
00:47:13,372 --> 00:47:16,834
You need seven,
and you set them up like this.

721
00:47:17,876 --> 00:47:18,919
Why seven?

722
00:47:19,753 --> 00:47:21,630
Mom, Dad...

723
00:47:22,214 --> 00:47:24,842
Steven, Shirl, Theo,

724
00:47:25,050 --> 00:47:26,426
you, me.

725
00:47:27,386 --> 00:47:28,846
It has to be seven.

726
00:47:29,805 --> 00:47:33,559
It helps if you touch each one
and count out loud.

727
00:47:35,185 --> 00:47:37,354
One, two,

728
00:47:37,938 --> 00:47:39,857
three, four,

729
00:47:40,566 --> 00:47:43,110
five, six, seven.

730
00:47:44,069 --> 00:47:45,153
That keeps you safe.

731
00:47:45,571 --> 00:47:47,781
Sometimes you got to do it a lot.

732
00:47:47,865 --> 00:47:49,533
Like, a lot a lot.

733
00:47:50,701 --> 00:47:52,077
Don't forget to count.

734
00:47:53,996 --> 00:47:54,872
One...

735
00:47:56,081 --> 00:47:56,957
two...

736
00:47:57,708 --> 00:47:58,542
three...

737
00:47:58,625 --> 00:48:01,503
Four, five, six, seven.

738
00:48:06,216 --> 00:48:09,094
One, two, three, four,

739
00:48:09,177 --> 00:48:11,096
five, six, seven.

740
00:48:15,767 --> 00:48:20,147
One, two, three, four, five, six...

741
00:48:22,274 --> 00:48:23,150
seven.

742
00:48:30,782 --> 00:48:35,913
One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven.

743
00:48:36,246 --> 00:48:41,168
One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven.

744
00:48:41,460 --> 00:48:44,046
One, two, three...

745
00:48:45,005 --> 00:48:46,840
[pants]

746
00:49:03,357 --> 00:49:04,775
Come home, my love.

747
00:49:29,007 --> 00:49:30,092
Steve.

748
00:49:34,262 --> 00:49:36,348
I'm so sorry, I didn't--

749
00:49:36,890 --> 00:49:39,434
I couldn't-- I couldn't help her.

750
00:49:39,518 --> 00:49:41,269
[sobbing]

751
00:49:43,355 --> 00:49:45,148
[mumbles indistinctly]

752
00:49:47,484 --> 00:49:51,029
And I'm so-- I'm so cold.
I didn't...

753
00:49:52,614 --> 00:49:56,201
[stuttering] My arms and legs
are... are stiff.

754
00:49:56,284 --> 00:49:57,494
And I...

755
00:49:57,661 --> 00:49:58,745
I...

756
00:49:58,829 --> 00:50:00,622
[stammering] It's...

757
00:50:01,039 --> 00:50:03,166
It's like-- It's like withdrawal, but...

758
00:50:03,667 --> 00:50:05,669
but I didn't use.

759
00:50:06,420 --> 00:50:08,422
I wasn't using, but...

760
00:50:09,297 --> 00:50:10,257
But I...

761
00:50:10,590 --> 00:50:12,217
But I feel it anyway.

762
00:50:15,554 --> 00:50:17,472
You... You believe me, right?

763
00:50:19,224 --> 00:50:20,684
You gotta come with me.

764
00:50:22,477 --> 00:50:24,104
You gotta come with me, Luke.

765
00:50:24,187 --> 00:50:25,313
What? Why?

766
00:50:25,689 --> 00:50:26,648
It's Nell.

767
00:50:30,485 --> 00:50:31,737
Nell's dead.

768
00:50:44,124 --> 00:50:44,958
How?

769
00:50:46,460 --> 00:50:48,336
It was... It was suicide.

770
00:50:57,471 --> 00:50:58,638
[pants]

771
00:51:02,017 --> 00:51:02,851
No.

772
00:51:04,186 --> 00:51:05,103
Stevie...

773
00:51:10,859 --> 00:51:11,818
it wasn't.
