Atypical (2017)

review & opinion

season 2

Atypical is a Netflix Original series, produced by Exhibit A. There are 18 episodes over 2 seasons.  Each episode is around 30 minutes in length.

 

The spoken language is English, and Netflix offers dubbing and/or subtitles in several other languages. There may be more language options available in your area.

 

Atypical is rated TV-MA.  This series contains coarse language and mature situations.

 

Atypical, in short, is the story of Sam, an autistic high-school senior, and his dysfuncional family, coping with life on the spectrum.

the opinion:

Atypical’s first season had a bit of a rough-ride. Some called the show “offensive”, others thought Atypical wasn’t atypical at all of a story about a boy and his family coping with autism.

 

To those: relax.

 

I’m not entirely sure how medically accurate the show is, and to be honest, I don’t really care. Neither should you.

 

Atypical isn’t a documentary. This is a fictional TV series about a fictional character and his fictional (and dysfunctional) family. The operative word here, if you haven’t guessed it by now, is “fictional.”

 

Certainly, when scriptwriters get together and begin the creative (and extremely difficult) process of writing a series, they do have a responsibility to be accurate when it comes to the non-fictional stuff.

 

There is a fine balance between entertaining and informing without boring.

the disorder that's entertaining?

The underlying theme of Atypical is autism. Talk about a snooze-fest, right? It doesn't have all the "glitz and glamor" that comes with other mental disorders like schizophrenia or PTSD. Autism is obessive, compulsive, repetitive, rude, don’t-touch-me-or-else blah-blah-blah boringness. Where’s the fun in that?

 

Autism lies along a spectrum. At one end, is the most severe case: “Inflexibility of behavior, extreme difficulty coping with change, or other restricted/repetitive behaviors markedly interfere with functioning in all spheres. Great distress/difficulty changing focus or action,” according to the DSM-5 (Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).

 

At the other end of the spectrum, not as severe. “Inflexibility of behavior causes significant interference with functioning in one or more contexts. Difficulty switching between activities. Problems of organization and planning hamper independence.”

so what i'm saying, is this...

It may not seem like it with my brief “cut-and-paste” descriptions, but this is a w-i-d-e spectrum and, honestly, not exciting subject matter when it comes to entertaining the viewer. So, writing a series about a boy named Sam who suffers with the disorder is a tall order to fill. The writers have to keep the facts in-check, while at the same time making the series watchable; aka: entertaining.

When you watch those “based on a true story” movies, do you believe you’re watching everything exactly how it happened? You’re not. Real life isn’t as sexy as it is on screen, no matter how “true” the story claims to be.

 

Atypical, though not based on a true story, isn’t entirely fictional, either. There is balance and Atypical does get some things right in its portrayal of coping with autism. Also, something I consider to be a rather bold, but absolutely brilliant move, is the introduction of 8 new characters to the Atypical cast - all of whom are on the spectrum. Bravo to that.

 

VIDEO: meet Sam's support group!

 

Atypical is not perfect, sure. Like life itself, there are good things and some not-so-good things you may come across. But it’s entertaining and enjoyable to watch. It’s neither offensive, nor inaccurate. It’s thought-provoking and even funny!

 

You'll probably enjoy it, because, above all else, it is entertaining. - Nick Runyeard

one of the top three bravest guys

27
00:01:51,945 --> 00:01:53,488
in the history of the planet.

28
00:01:53,655 --> 00:01:55,698
No one would ever disagree with that.

29
00:01:56,658 --> 00:01:58,201
Very nice, you passed.

30
00:02:04,958 --> 00:02:06,918
[Sam] But if he hadn't been prepared...

31
00:02:09,921 --> 00:02:13,049
he would have frozen like a Popsicle
in the Antarctic tundra.
32
00:02:30,191 --> 00:02:31,025
Sam?

33
00:02:31,818 --> 00:02:34,070
-Did you get my invitation?
-Yes.

34
00:02:35,155 --> 00:02:37,532
-Are you pregnant?
-Yes.

35
00:02:38,074 --> 00:02:40,493
That explains the belly. Hmm.

36
00:02:43,288 --> 00:02:47,584
Graduating isn't exactly the same
as completing a 1,400km journey

37
00:02:47,667 --> 00:02:50,712
through sub-zero temperatures
with a team of sled dogs.

38
00:02:51,963 --> 00:02:54,424
[Sam] But for me, it's not far off.

39
00:02:54,507 --> 00:02:56,342
-Did you get married?
-No.

40
00:02:56,968 --> 00:02:59,512
-Is the baby a boy or a girl?
-A boy.

41
00:02:59,721 --> 00:03:02,140
-Who's the father?
-That's private.

42
00:03:02,223 --> 00:03:03,766
-Is it Miles?
-Private.

43
00:03:04,434 --> 00:03:06,311
Do you feel sad or happy?

44
00:03:06,394 --> 00:03:08,771
Thanks for asking. Happy.

45
00:03:08,980 --> 00:03:10,398
-Okay.
-Okay.

46
00:03:10,690 --> 00:03:12,358
Can we talk about graduation now?

47
00:03:13,401 --> 00:03:15,361
Sam, it's a big deal.

48
00:03:15,862 --> 00:03:19,032
I know. And I have the third-highest GPA
in the class.

49
00:03:19,115 --> 00:03:20,909
Paige has the highest, which is good

50
00:03:20,992 --> 00:03:23,453
because she's the one
who has to give a speech, not me.

51
00:03:23,536 --> 00:03:26,539
-I hate speaking in front of large groups.
-Me, too.

52
00:03:26,623 --> 00:03:29,542
Did you pee your pants in the third
grade play in front of the school, too?

53
00:03:29,626 --> 00:03:32,212
[laughs] No, but I did give
a really terrible speech

54
00:03:32,295 --> 00:03:33,671
at my cousin's wedding.

55
00:03:33,838 --> 00:03:35,673
But she's divorced,
so I guess it's all good.

56
00:03:35,757 --> 00:03:36,591
Oh.

57
00:03:36,674 --> 00:03:39,010
Speech or not, this is very exciting.

58
00:03:39,844 --> 00:03:43,806
When you first came to me, you were
so focused on things you couldn't do and,

59
00:03:44,015 --> 00:03:47,810
now you've done so much.
You're becoming really independent.

60
00:03:47,894 --> 00:03:49,020
I'm getting there.

61
00:03:49,103 --> 00:03:51,898
I'll need to be completely independent
by the time I go to college.

62
00:03:51,981 --> 00:03:55,818
-Yeah, well, that's a tall order, but--
-Will you be at graduation?

63
00:03:56,110 --> 00:03:58,529
-I wouldn't miss it.
-Great. Bye, Julia.

64
00:03:58,613 --> 00:03:59,739
Bye.

65
00:04:04,285 --> 00:04:06,871
Hey, there you are. How's your hand?

66
00:04:07,830 --> 00:04:10,541
-[Doug] Good, fine.
-You should talk to your boss.

67
00:04:10,708 --> 00:04:13,544
Who knew those corners
on those metal gurneys were so sharp?

68
00:04:13,628 --> 00:04:14,587
It's okay.

69
00:04:14,837 --> 00:04:16,130
-So guess what?
-What?

70
00:04:16,256 --> 00:04:17,715
I finished my website,

71
00:04:17,799 --> 00:04:21,844
and I already have three
new hair-cutting appointments.

72
00:04:21,928 --> 00:04:23,721
-Three!
-Oh, good. That's cool.

73
00:04:23,805 --> 00:04:25,682
Yeah! It's very cool. Yeah.

74
00:04:25,765 --> 00:04:29,769
I mean, I know it's just a tiny thing,
but I love working with the kids.

75
00:04:29,852 --> 00:04:30,728
Keys?

76
00:04:31,062 --> 00:04:33,564
-Nope.
-How come? I'm a legal driver.

77
00:04:33,648 --> 00:04:36,109
-It's dinner time.
-I'll go to a drive-thru.

78
00:04:36,192 --> 00:04:38,194
[Sam] Oh, good. You're all here.

79
00:04:38,486 --> 00:04:40,947
Oh, honey, look at you. Oh!

80
00:04:41,531 --> 00:04:44,701
-I have to get a picture.
-No, you're a terrible photographer.

81
00:04:44,784 --> 00:04:47,662
-I'm getting better. Where's the camera?
-Right there.

82
00:04:47,745 --> 00:04:49,539
[Elsa] There we go. Okay.

83
00:04:49,622 --> 00:04:50,873
-This is...
-Oh, that's me.

84
00:04:50,957 --> 00:04:52,875
There'll be plenty of time for pictures.

85
00:04:53,209 --> 00:04:54,919
Why are you even wearing that?

86
00:04:55,545 --> 00:04:59,132
[exhales] I'm preparing for the big day,
to get used to the feeling of the gown.

87
00:04:59,215 --> 00:05:01,676
-Well, how does it feel?
-So far so good.

88
00:05:01,759 --> 00:05:03,636
But it is a little cold on my thighs.

89
00:05:03,720 --> 00:05:06,306
Wait-- Are you not wearing anything
under there?

90
00:05:06,389 --> 00:05:09,475
-So? Zahid didn't.
-Oh, gross!

91
00:05:09,559 --> 00:05:10,601
Zahid graduated?

92
00:05:11,394 --> 00:05:12,520
[Sam] Attention, please.

93
00:05:12,603 --> 00:05:15,440
-I've gathered you all here--
-You didn't gather us, it's dinner.

94
00:05:15,523 --> 00:05:19,068
...to say that while I greatly appreciate
your help over the years,

95
00:05:19,152 --> 00:05:21,195
I'm no longer in need of your assistance.

96
00:05:21,279 --> 00:05:22,113
What?

97
00:05:22,196 --> 00:05:23,990
Wait, what is he saying?

98
00:05:24,073 --> 00:05:25,950
Can you please close your legs?

99
00:05:26,034 --> 00:05:28,244
I'm graduating. I need to be independent.

100
00:05:28,328 --> 00:05:32,040
So from this point on, I'd like it if you
stopped helping me in every single way.

101
00:05:32,123 --> 00:05:33,499
That has nothing to do--

102
00:05:33,583 --> 00:05:35,877
My mind is made up. Now,
if someone could please pass me--

103
00:05:37,837 --> 00:05:38,755
Never mind.

104
00:05:38,838 --> 00:05:40,882
No. No, no!

105
00:05:40,965 --> 00:05:43,343
Get off me! You're naked!

106
00:05:43,426 --> 00:05:45,470
[Sam]
Ernest Shackleton wasn't always a leader.

107
00:05:45,553 --> 00:05:47,221
Oh, my God. I touched his butt!

108
00:05:47,513 --> 00:05:49,807
[Sam] He got his start
on someone else's expedition.

109
00:05:49,891 --> 00:05:51,267
[Casey screams] Oh, no!

110
00:05:52,727 --> 00:05:55,188
Sam, honey, time to wake up.

111
00:05:57,273 --> 00:06:00,985
You're four minutes late. Since I relied
on myself, I've been awake since 5:30.

112
00:06:01,069 --> 00:06:03,571
I've already read
the entire newspaper online.

113
00:06:04,280 --> 00:06:05,740
I'm actually very exhausted.

114
00:06:06,032 --> 00:06:07,909
Did you hear
about the deadly earthquake in Peru?

115
00:06:08,117 --> 00:06:10,370
Well, anyway, time for breakfast.

116
00:06:15,666 --> 00:06:18,211
[Sam] When Shackleton finally
led his own expedition...

117
00:06:18,294 --> 00:06:20,129
-Can I help you with that?
-Nope.

118
00:06:21,005 --> 00:06:22,882
[Sam] ...it was based
on knowledge he gained

119
00:06:22,965 --> 00:06:24,926
from his time with Robert Falcon Scott.

120
00:06:25,134 --> 00:06:27,136
[adjusting time on microwave oven]

121
00:06:27,512 --> 00:06:28,388
[mobile phone buzzes]

122
00:06:28,471 --> 00:06:30,848
-[Elsa] Honey, just let me--
-[Sam] Independent!

123
00:06:33,601 --> 00:06:35,603
[microwave oven beeps]

124
00:06:39,107 --> 00:06:41,192
Still frozen, hence...

125
00:06:41,526 --> 00:06:43,569
I will put them back in the microwave.

126
00:06:45,113 --> 00:06:46,447
[adjusting time on microwave oven]

127
00:06:46,656 --> 00:06:49,367
-Oh, no, honey. That's too--
-Mom, I got this.

128
00:06:49,951 --> 00:06:51,953
[typing on mobile phone]

129
00:07:03,673 --> 00:07:05,675
[microwave oven beeps]

130
00:07:07,760 --> 00:07:09,762
[burns himself]

131
00:07:10,847 --> 00:07:11,806
Way too hot.

132
00:07:14,308 --> 00:07:16,811
[Sam] Shackleton learned, he applied...

133
00:07:17,437 --> 00:07:19,188
I'm sure it took practice.

134
00:07:22,233 --> 00:07:23,776
One minute should do.

135
00:07:24,777 --> 00:07:25,778
You can leave.

136
00:07:32,452 --> 00:07:34,954
You will not believe what happened.

137
00:07:35,037 --> 00:07:38,708
I was practicing my valedictorian speech
in my nightly bubble bath and...

138
00:07:39,208 --> 00:07:41,335
[huffs] Let's just say
my note cards were involved

139
00:07:41,419 --> 00:07:42,837
in a vision-candle accident.

140
00:07:43,171 --> 00:07:44,589
Really lucky I was in water.

141
00:07:45,006 --> 00:07:48,342
But anyway, now I have to rewrite them
all from scratch.

142
00:07:48,426 --> 00:07:49,927
And buy a laminator.

143
00:07:50,011 --> 00:07:52,513
Well, not to pile on the bad news, but...

144
00:07:52,763 --> 00:07:55,475
effective immediately,
I will no longer require your services

145
00:07:55,558 --> 00:07:57,894
when walking down the hall
between second and third period.

146
00:07:59,479 --> 00:08:01,647
Oh, um... Okay.

147
00:08:02,106 --> 00:08:04,901
Will the new girl that you've been kissing
be taking over?

148
00:08:04,984 --> 00:08:05,818
No.

149
00:08:06,235 --> 00:08:09,405
So are you two in a relationship
or are you just making out a lot?

150
00:08:09,530 --> 00:08:13,367
Neither. We're not in a relationship,
and we only made out three times.

151
00:08:13,451 --> 00:08:15,995
Once on your bench
and twice not on your bench.

152
00:08:16,662 --> 00:08:17,830
[door opens]

153
00:08:20,750 --> 00:08:22,919
-Alright, here you go. Go, Owls.
-Thanks.

154
00:08:23,377 --> 00:08:24,670
Gardner comma Sam.

155
00:08:24,754 --> 00:08:27,298
Wait... You made out on my bench?

156
00:08:27,381 --> 00:08:30,384
-Yeah, one time.
-When? Was the paint wet?

157
00:08:31,344 --> 00:08:33,387
Samuel David Gardner,
are you the smudger?

158
00:08:33,471 --> 00:08:35,515
No, I'd have to put my back
on the bench.

159
00:08:35,598 --> 00:08:37,266
I never put my back on the bench.

160
00:08:38,643 --> 00:08:39,560
That's true.

161
00:08:40,811 --> 00:08:42,730
Whoo! That is a relief.

162
00:08:42,813 --> 00:08:44,565
-Although...
-What?

163
00:08:44,649 --> 00:08:47,151
Now that you mention it,
the girl I kissed,

164
00:08:47,235 --> 00:08:48,819
whose name I can't tell you,

165
00:08:48,945 --> 00:08:51,155
did get some paint on her jacket.

166
00:08:52,823 --> 00:08:54,116
Maybe she's the smudger.

167
00:08:55,660 --> 00:08:57,495
Perfect. Bye, Paige.

168
00:08:58,412 --> 00:09:01,249
[students chattering in distance]

169
00:09:02,166 --> 00:09:06,420
[Elsa] Don't you just love zucchini bread?
It's like cake with vegetables.

170
00:09:19,392 --> 00:09:20,434
You know...

171
00:09:21,811 --> 00:09:23,354
I was intimate with a woman once--

172
00:09:23,437 --> 00:09:24,730
Oh-- Mom!

173
00:09:24,814 --> 00:09:27,108
She was vibrant and...

174
00:09:27,692 --> 00:09:29,360
spontaneous.

175
00:09:30,278 --> 00:09:32,697
-She was tender.
-God, I need to bleach my ears.

176
00:09:32,989 --> 00:09:34,198
She was tall.

177
00:09:34,282 --> 00:09:38,077
She had red hair. She was kind of like
a female version of your dad.

178
00:09:38,327 --> 00:09:40,621
This is so terrible, my eyes are watering.

179
00:09:40,705 --> 00:09:44,875
Honey, I made a lot
of big mistakes this year.

180
00:09:46,252 --> 00:09:47,795
I've become...

181
00:09:48,588 --> 00:09:49,672
kind of an expert

182
00:09:49,755 --> 00:09:52,341
on accidentally hurting
the people I love most.

183
00:09:55,261 --> 00:09:56,804
So if you ever want to talk...

184
00:09:57,638 --> 00:09:58,598
I'm here.

185
00:09:59,599 --> 00:10:00,683
Sorry, I'm...

186
00:10:02,018 --> 00:10:04,145
I'm just still picturing a female Dad.

187
00:10:04,937 --> 00:10:06,856
-It's not pretty.
-You'd be surprised.

188
00:10:08,274 --> 00:10:09,900
-Very pretty...
-[Casey grunts]

189
00:10:10,192 --> 00:10:13,070
-I may have a picture.
-No!

190
00:10:15,531 --> 00:10:19,410
This person said, "Have a nice summer,"
which is very thoughtful.

191
00:10:19,702 --> 00:10:21,287
And this one said, "Stay cool,"

192
00:10:21,621 --> 00:10:24,457
which is funny 'cause I didn't know
I was cool to begin with.

193
00:10:24,540 --> 00:10:25,666
Oh, you're cool, bro.

194
00:10:25,750 --> 00:10:27,835
You're as cool
as a pickle in the freezer.

195
00:10:28,586 --> 00:10:29,920
-Hmm?
-I don't know.

196
00:10:30,713 --> 00:10:33,215
I usually don't let people
sign my yearbook because...

197
00:10:33,382 --> 00:10:35,718
I don't like to talk to people
that I don't know,

198
00:10:35,801 --> 00:10:37,428
but so far it's been okay.

199
00:10:39,305 --> 00:10:41,265
Are you really eating brownies for dinner?

200
00:10:41,641 --> 00:10:43,768
They're not just brownies, Samuel.

201
00:10:44,101 --> 00:10:47,396
They're pot brownies
and pot is a vegetable.

202
00:10:47,480 --> 00:10:49,982
Cousin of cauliflower, stepbro of sage.

203
00:10:50,066 --> 00:10:54,779
You know, on a proper nutritional pyramid,
dank chronic is the bottom floor.

204
00:10:55,446 --> 00:10:56,989
That is definitely untrue.

205
00:10:57,073 --> 00:11:01,327
Seems like the man eating dry cereal out
of a baggie should not be throwing stones.

206
00:11:01,702 --> 00:11:03,287
I've been making my own meals.

207
00:11:03,371 --> 00:11:04,789
I'm independent now.

208
00:11:04,872 --> 00:11:06,207
Speaking of which,

209
00:11:06,290 --> 00:11:09,627
I'll no longer require you
to give me advice about getting girls.

210
00:11:09,710 --> 00:11:12,171
I'd like to handle that all on my own
from now on.

211
00:11:12,254 --> 00:11:14,840
I accept that.
Your game is def going to suffer.

212
00:11:14,924 --> 00:11:18,302
But hey, bust out of that chrysalis,
little butterfly.

213
00:11:19,804 --> 00:11:21,138
-[Zahid laughs]
-Oh...

214
00:11:21,263 --> 00:11:22,973
And I have something for you.

215
00:11:24,183 --> 00:11:26,727
Invitation to graduation,
non-transferable.

216
00:11:26,811 --> 00:11:28,104
-For moi?
-Mm-hmm.

217
00:11:29,105 --> 00:11:31,732
-Sammy, I could kiss you.
-No.

218
00:11:31,816 --> 00:11:33,776
-I'm gonna. Let me.
-Please, don't.

219
00:11:33,984 --> 00:11:35,861
[Sam gasping]

220
00:11:36,737 --> 00:11:39,824
She said "tender."
It was the worst moment of my life.

221
00:11:40,116 --> 00:11:42,952
-[music playing]
-[mobile phone buzzes]

222
00:11:56,132 --> 00:11:58,050
So we're good right now, right?

223
00:11:58,134 --> 00:12:00,052
-Yeah.
-Yeah?

224
00:12:00,386 --> 00:12:01,846
I mean, I guess so.

225
00:12:02,346 --> 00:12:03,472
What, why?

226
00:12:03,723 --> 00:12:05,766
Well, you never gave me
my birthday present.

227
00:12:05,850 --> 00:12:09,979
Yeah, I gave you that neckla--
Oh, you're talking about...

228
00:12:11,147 --> 00:12:12,022
[Casey chuckles]

229
00:12:12,106 --> 00:12:13,691
Are you sure, 'cause...

230
00:12:14,358 --> 00:12:15,776
we could wait.

231
00:12:15,860 --> 00:12:17,862
[chuckles]

232
00:12:19,071 --> 00:12:20,906
[music continues]

233
00:12:24,952 --> 00:12:25,911
I love you.

234
00:12:26,162 --> 00:12:28,831
-I'm ambivalent.
-Hey. [chuckles]

235
00:12:28,914 --> 00:12:31,375
I'm, like, really ambivalent.

236
00:12:33,753 --> 00:12:36,130
-You see how it feels?
-[chuckles] You love me.

237
00:12:37,923 --> 00:12:40,468
-You do.
-Yeah. I love you.

238
00:12:46,348 --> 00:12:48,350
[Evan] Whoo-hoo!

239
00:12:48,934 --> 00:12:50,811
-Throw it away.
-[Casey chuckles]

240
00:12:50,895 --> 00:12:52,396
-Come here.
-[Casey moans]

241
00:12:54,857 --> 00:12:57,318
[Sam] Of course, there's a big part
of being an explorer

242
00:12:57,401 --> 00:12:59,779
that involves doing things
you're unfamiliar with.

243
00:13:00,905 --> 00:13:04,492
That's where something called
a spirit of adventure comes in handy.

244
00:13:04,575 --> 00:13:06,285
I never really had one before.

245
00:13:07,369 --> 00:13:08,329
Until now.

246
00:13:08,496 --> 00:13:10,039
[students chattering]

247
00:13:10,122 --> 00:13:13,083
Hi, I'm Sam Gardner.
Would you please sign my yearbook?

248
00:13:14,293 --> 00:13:16,045
Good, and pass it around.

249
00:13:16,921 --> 00:13:17,963
Bailey Bennett.

250
00:13:18,380 --> 00:13:20,216
You've been kissing Bailey Bennett?

251
00:13:20,341 --> 00:13:22,009
-Nice work, dude.
-Thank you.

252
00:13:22,968 --> 00:13:26,680
She left her jacket on a chair
in history class and I absconded with it.

253
00:13:26,972 --> 00:13:27,932
So it's true?

254
00:13:28,098 --> 00:13:32,353
Well, I'm not supposed to tell,
but since you found out on your own, yes.

255
00:13:32,603 --> 00:13:33,979
God, I can't believe this.

256
00:13:34,063 --> 00:13:38,192
And to be clear, the vandalism is
what bothers me here, not the kissing.

257
00:13:38,317 --> 00:13:39,735
You can kiss whomever you want,

258
00:13:39,819 --> 00:13:42,112
they're your lips.
But when it comes to my hard work,

259
00:13:42,196 --> 00:13:44,740
and my beautifully painted
"Live Love Laugh" bench

260
00:13:44,824 --> 00:13:47,868
is ruthlessly smudged,
then I do have to get involved.

261
00:13:47,952 --> 00:13:49,995
[Sam] Turns out, not everyone in school

262
00:13:50,079 --> 00:13:52,373
thought I was cool,
like a pickle in the freezer.

263
00:13:55,835 --> 00:13:57,920
-[man] What a loser.
-[girl] What a weirdo.

264
00:13:58,587 --> 00:13:59,588
[man] Freak!

265
00:13:59,672 --> 00:14:02,007
-[girl laughs]
-[man] That kid's a spaz.

266
00:14:02,091 --> 00:14:03,217
[Sam hearing voices]

267
00:14:03,300 --> 00:14:07,429
And I'm holding this jacket hostage until
Bailey Bennett gets me a new senior gift.

268
00:14:08,472 --> 00:14:10,015
[Paige] Wait, Sam, are you okay?

269
00:14:12,184 --> 00:14:13,102

Sam.
270
00:14:18,649 --> 00:14:21,110
-I need a new yearbook.
-But you already had one.

271
00:14:21,944 --> 00:14:24,196
This one is ruined and I need a new one.

272
00:14:24,280 --> 00:14:28,284
To be independent, you need to know
what to do when things go wrong because...

273
00:14:28,367 --> 00:14:30,494
you can't expect someone
to fix it for you.

274
00:14:31,245 --> 00:14:33,205
You need to know
how to do it yourself. [pants]

275
00:14:34,248 --> 00:14:37,459
Even if you really, really, really,
really don't want to.

276
00:14:37,751 --> 00:14:38,794
What's wrong with it?

277
00:14:41,338 --> 00:14:43,257
[shouts] I just need a new one!

278
00:14:43,340 --> 00:14:45,009
Sorry, it's one per person.

279
00:14:45,885 --> 00:14:46,969
[grunts]

280
00:14:47,052 --> 00:14:47,887
Dude!

281
00:14:47,970 --> 00:14:50,264
-[boy] Did you see that?
-[girl] What is he doing?

282
00:14:50,347 --> 00:14:52,433
[Sam] Not every expedition is possible.

283
00:14:52,850 --> 00:14:55,269
Not everyone is meant to be an explorer.

284
00:14:58,230 --> 00:15:01,275
Even if you do all the right things,
stuff can still go wrong

285
00:15:01,525 --> 00:15:03,694
because sometimes...

286
00:15:04,528 --> 00:15:05,571
some people...

287
00:15:06,238 --> 00:15:07,364
they're just...

288
00:15:08,657 --> 00:15:09,700
failures.

289
00:15:11,035 --> 00:15:12,369
[door rattles]

290
00:15:21,921 --> 00:15:23,923
[mobile phone ringing]

291
00:15:26,884 --> 00:15:27,718
Hello?

292
00:15:31,221 --> 00:15:32,056
What?

293
00:15:33,557 --> 00:15:34,475
Whoa!

294
00:15:34,558 --> 00:15:36,310
-Hi.
-Are you going somewhere?

295
00:15:36,393 --> 00:15:37,853
No, I just heard your car.

296
00:15:38,646 --> 00:15:40,522
Sometimes you're just like Sam.

297
00:15:40,606 --> 00:15:43,150
Oh, yeah, Sam's boss Bob just called.

298
00:15:43,233 --> 00:15:46,278
Sam never showed up for work.
Sam has never skipped work before.

299
00:15:46,362 --> 00:15:48,906
I texted Zahid,
but he still hasn't texted me back.

300
00:15:48,989 --> 00:15:51,450
I'm really trying not to freak out,
but I am freaking out.

301
00:15:51,533 --> 00:15:53,369
Okay. It's okay. Calm down.

302
00:15:54,912 --> 00:15:55,913
It's okay.

303
00:15:58,290 --> 00:15:59,249
Hey, guys.

304
00:15:59,750 --> 00:16:03,170
I talked to Paige.
I think I know why Sam ran away.

305
00:16:04,922 --> 00:16:06,090
Oh, no.

306
00:16:08,008 --> 00:16:11,470
Why does Sam say he'll always remember
becoming a father?

307
00:16:12,054 --> 00:16:13,555
He's talking about the baby penguin.

308
00:16:16,642 --> 00:16:18,310
I think I know where he is.

309
00:16:23,857 --> 00:16:26,026
[indistinct chatter]

310
00:16:29,029 --> 00:16:30,197
Hey.

311
00:16:32,324 --> 00:16:33,367
Hey, little dude.

312
00:16:33,450 --> 00:16:34,660
Hi, Sam.

313
00:16:36,495 --> 00:16:38,288
You just missed feeding time.

314
00:16:38,372 --> 00:16:39,748
It was a real frenzy.

315
00:16:40,457 --> 00:16:41,959
Bad day to be a herring.

316
00:16:45,379 --> 00:16:46,296
You know...

317
00:16:47,923 --> 00:16:49,466
When you were five...

318
00:16:50,300 --> 00:16:51,635
I made a list.

319
00:16:52,052 --> 00:16:54,471
You got your love of lists from your mom.

320
00:16:54,722 --> 00:16:55,931
She loves a list.

321
00:16:56,598 --> 00:16:57,891
[chuckles] I do.

322
00:16:58,392 --> 00:17:03,522
Anyway, I made a list
of everything I hoped for, for you.

323
00:17:04,231 --> 00:17:06,775
I was trying to manage my expectations.

324
00:17:07,401 --> 00:17:08,235
Here.
325
00:17:09,611 --> 00:17:11,905
[unfolding paper]

326
00:17:12,823 --> 00:17:14,575
"I hope he makes a friend.

327
00:17:15,200 --> 00:17:17,453
I hope he can communicate clearly.

328
00:17:17,870 --> 00:17:20,122
I hope he can leave the house on his own.

329
00:17:20,205 --> 00:17:21,999
I hope he does okay in school.

330
00:17:22,458 --> 00:17:24,752
I hope he finds something he loves to do."

331
00:17:24,835 --> 00:17:26,628
-Those are so easy.
-No.

332
00:17:26,962 --> 00:17:28,505
They weren't. They were hard.

333
00:17:29,548 --> 00:17:32,051
But every time I thought
you couldn't do something, you did it.

334
00:17:33,177 --> 00:17:34,303
You're strong...

335
00:17:35,095 --> 00:17:36,263
and determined.

336
00:17:37,556 --> 00:17:40,601
And I'm so sorry
I underestimated you about college.

337
00:17:42,352 --> 00:17:43,687
You can do anything.

338
00:17:44,730 --> 00:17:48,567
Sometimes I just can't believe
that I have these amazing...

339
00:17:49,068 --> 00:17:50,110
funny...

340
00:17:50,319 --> 00:17:51,987
[sobs] great kids.

341
00:17:57,159 --> 00:17:58,285
Which one's yours?

342
00:17:58,869 --> 00:17:59,870
That one.

343
00:18:00,829 --> 00:18:03,874
-With the gray head?
-No, that one.

344
00:18:03,957 --> 00:18:05,918
Oh, with the white wing tips?

345
00:18:06,001 --> 00:18:09,296
Are you crazy? That's a male!
He looks nothing like her.

346
00:18:09,379 --> 00:18:10,422
Right there.

347
00:18:12,257 --> 00:18:14,802
-She's so cute.
-Yep.

348
00:18:16,178 --> 00:18:18,055
I just hope the other penguins
are nice to her.

349
00:18:18,931 --> 00:18:21,350
Even if they're hard on her,
every now and then...

350
00:18:21,934 --> 00:18:23,852
you're always going to have her back.

351
00:18:29,108 --> 00:18:31,110
[birds chirping]

352
00:18:37,074 --> 00:18:39,076
[blows]

353
00:18:47,835 --> 00:18:49,002
It's a big day, dude.

354
00:18:49,753 --> 00:18:50,796
Let's keep it cool.

355
00:18:54,591 --> 00:18:56,760
I was looking
at the Denton course catalog.

356
00:18:56,844 --> 00:18:58,804
There are so many cool classes
Sam can take.

357
00:18:59,096 --> 00:19:00,681
-Oh, yeah?
-Yeah.

358
00:19:00,764 --> 00:19:03,058
Made me kinda wish
I could go back to school.

359
00:19:04,143 --> 00:19:06,979
-Well, you should.
-Yeah?
360
00:19:07,271 --> 00:19:08,105
Why not?
361
00:19:09,648 --> 00:19:12,192
-Can you-- Your arm is on my side.
-No, it's not.

362
00:19:12,985 --> 00:19:15,612
-[mobile phone buzzes]
-[music playing on car radio]

363
00:19:19,908 --> 00:19:21,910
[typing]

364
00:19:27,916 --> 00:19:28,876
Arm!

365
00:19:29,042 --> 00:19:32,171
I'm taking up a reasonable amount
of space. I'm a grown man.

366
00:19:32,254 --> 00:19:33,922
And I'm a grown woman.

367
00:19:34,506 --> 00:19:38,177
-She licked me!
-Casey, really! It's graduation.

368
00:19:38,260 --> 00:19:39,428
I warned him.

369
00:19:39,511 --> 00:19:41,096
Wipe it on your robe, Sam.

370
00:19:41,180 --> 00:19:42,431
Are you crazy? This is a rental.

371
00:19:42,514 --> 00:19:46,185
Okay, for Pete's sake, I'm sure
I can find a napkin in here somewhere.

372
00:19:50,814 --> 00:19:53,025
Do you have a... Maybe in your jacket?

373
00:19:53,150 --> 00:19:55,027
[unfolds paper]

374
00:19:59,823 --> 00:20:01,700
Napkin? It's dry and cold.

375
00:20:02,492 --> 00:20:04,286
Just wipe it on your robe, honey.

376
00:20:14,546 --> 00:20:15,964
[seat belts unbuckle]

377
00:20:20,093 --> 00:20:21,136

00:20:22,221 --> 00:20:23,263
[second door closes]

379
00:20:24,139 --> 00:20:26,016
[sighs] What did you do?

380
00:20:29,144 --> 00:20:31,521
Nothing, [stammers] it wasn't a big deal.

381
00:20:33,398 --> 00:20:34,608
You went to see him?

382
00:20:35,859 --> 00:20:37,653
Is that what happened to your hand?

383
00:20:44,743 --> 00:20:47,371
I've tried everything
to get you to forgive me.

384
00:20:48,413 --> 00:20:51,959
Everything. And I've been patient,
and I haven't expected much.

385
00:20:53,335 --> 00:20:56,505
[sighs] But I need to know...

386
00:20:58,131 --> 00:21:00,467
Are you ever going to be able
to get past this?

387
00:21:01,927 --> 00:21:04,096
Are you ever going to be able
to let this go?

388
00:21:05,973 --> 00:21:07,891
Because you need to.

389
00:21:09,226 --> 00:21:11,144
I mean, if this is ever...

390
00:21:11,353 --> 00:21:13,105
gonna work out, you...

391
00:21:13,313 --> 00:21:14,314
you need to.

392
00:21:17,317 --> 00:21:18,193
-I want to--
-Guys!

393
00:21:18,360 --> 00:21:21,947
Come on! 47 minutes till graduation.
You heard it from the horse's mouth.

394
00:21:32,749 --> 00:21:36,211
[Sam] Shackleton's greatest legacy
was not reaching the South Pole...

395
00:21:37,629 --> 00:21:42,009
I can't tell you what an impressive group
of young people this is.

396
00:21:42,301 --> 00:21:44,553
Well, you know, you raised them.

397
00:21:44,928 --> 00:21:46,930
[people laughing]

398
00:21:47,723 --> 00:21:50,892
[Sam] ...because Shackleton
never actually got to the South Pole.

399
00:21:51,059 --> 00:21:52,311
If you can believe it,

400
00:21:52,644 --> 00:21:54,688
he's most famous for turning back.

401
00:21:55,355 --> 00:21:56,732
This is really exciting.

402
00:21:56,857 --> 00:21:58,525
Our boy's really growing up, huh?

403
00:21:59,901 --> 00:22:04,072
Hey. After this, you wanna go check
and see if the band room is unlocked?

404
00:22:04,865 --> 00:22:07,993
-They've got a couch in there.
-Don't be gross.

405
00:22:08,368 --> 00:22:09,411
[woman coughs]

406
00:22:10,495 --> 00:22:12,539
But... text me later.

407
00:22:12,873 --> 00:22:16,293
I was supposed to hang with Izzie,
but maybe you can come over after.

408
00:22:16,543 --> 00:22:18,545
[teacher speaking on microphone]

409
00:22:21,715 --> 00:22:24,801
There you are. You're 19 minutes late,
which is unlike you.

410
00:22:26,094 --> 00:22:29,681
And now it is time to here
from this year's valedictorian,

411
00:22:29,890 --> 00:22:31,683
Paige Hardaway.

412
00:22:32,059 --> 00:22:34,061
[people cheering]

413
00:22:45,989 --> 00:22:49,034
Paige. She called your name,
you have to go.

414
00:22:49,701 --> 00:22:50,535
Paige?

415
00:22:50,786 --> 00:22:53,246
-Paging Paige. [chuckles]
-[people laughing]

416
00:22:53,663 --> 00:22:56,166
Paige, I see you. You're right there.

417
00:22:57,501 --> 00:22:59,461
-Paige?
-I can't do it.

418
00:23:00,003 --> 00:23:02,381
-What?
-I can't do it.

419
00:23:03,340 --> 00:23:05,467
Why is your voice so hoarse? Are you sick?

420
00:23:07,177 --> 00:23:08,261
[shouts] All right!

421
00:23:08,970 --> 00:23:10,597
Which one of you scumbags was it?

422
00:23:13,392 --> 00:23:14,476
Cowards!

423
00:23:14,851 --> 00:23:18,271
You know, I really try
to see the best in people.

424
00:23:18,688 --> 00:23:21,108
But somebody here is nothing but bad!

425
00:23:21,483 --> 00:23:22,818
Rotten to the core!

426
00:23:22,901 --> 00:23:24,861
-[grunts]
-Dude!

427
00:23:25,278 --> 00:23:26,613
-I mean, "spaz"?

428
00:23:27,531 --> 00:23:29,199
"Freak"? "Weirdo"?

429
00:23:29,449 --> 00:23:32,452
I am ashamed to call myself an Owl.

430
00:23:32,869 --> 00:23:37,958
No, you know what? You! All of you
should be ashamed to call yourselves Owls!

431
00:23:38,041 --> 00:23:40,919
[shouts] So, hoot-hoot-who did it?

432
00:23:43,505 --> 00:23:46,800
[shouts] Die slowly, you shitbirds!

433
00:23:47,175 --> 00:23:48,718
[screams insanely]

434
00:23:48,802 --> 00:23:49,761
So are you sick?

435
00:23:49,928 --> 00:23:51,138
Yeah, I'm sick.

436
00:23:51,346 --> 00:23:53,640
Paige, please come up.
I simply cannot talk anymore.

437
00:23:53,723 --> 00:23:54,766
[people laughing]

438
00:23:54,891 --> 00:23:59,062
Well, you can't give your speech
like that, that would sound very annoying.

439
00:24:00,105 --> 00:24:04,067
[sobs] I know, I've just been preparing
for this since I was eight years old.

440
00:24:04,693 --> 00:24:08,738
And, I've worked so hard on it
and now no one's going to hear it.

441
00:24:08,864 --> 00:24:10,282
[whimpers]

442
00:24:12,534 --> 00:24:13,618
Yes, they will.

443
00:24:15,245 --> 00:24:16,121
I'll do it.

444
00:24:17,956 --> 00:24:18,790
What?

445
00:24:19,958 --> 00:24:21,126
I'll give your speech.

446
00:24:22,127 --> 00:24:25,338
Sam, you peed your pants
in the third grade.

447
00:24:27,007 --> 00:24:29,384
Well, that's a risk I'll have to take.

448
00:24:29,885 --> 00:24:31,470
I haven't had any water today.

449
00:24:31,553 --> 00:24:33,972
[Sam] Shackleton knew
some of his team wouldn't make it,

450
00:24:34,055 --> 00:24:37,476
so he turned around and went home
with only 93 miles left to go.

451
00:24:37,559 --> 00:24:39,978
Okay, this is not Paige, but I'll take it.

452
00:24:40,061 --> 00:24:41,480
What's he doing?

453
00:24:41,563 --> 00:24:43,190
I think he's going up on the stage.

454
00:24:43,273 --> 00:24:44,983
Damn straight he's going up on the stage!

455
00:24:45,150 --> 00:24:46,526
Get it, Sammy! Rock out!

456
00:24:46,610 --> 00:24:47,652
What is going on?

457
00:24:48,236 --> 00:24:51,072
[Sam] But sometimes in life
you need your team behind you

458
00:24:51,615 --> 00:24:54,159
and sometimes you need
to be someone else's team.

459
00:24:54,242 --> 00:24:56,536
-I should go up there. Should I?
-Please do not.

460
00:24:58,580 --> 00:25:00,832
-"Hi, I'm Paige Hardaway."
-[people chuckling]

461
00:25:02,334 --> 00:25:04,085
That's not true. I'm Sam Gardner.

462
00:25:04,169 --> 00:25:06,296
I'm just reading Paige's speech for her

463
00:25:06,379 --> 00:25:08,507
because her voice is scratchy
and annoying.

464
00:25:08,590 --> 00:25:10,050
-[people laughing]
-Um...

465
00:25:10,926 --> 00:25:14,804
"Thank you for coming,
and to my fellow graduates...

466
00:25:14,888 --> 00:25:15,972
congratulations.

467
00:25:16,181 --> 00:25:18,433
We did it. It's been a long road.

468
00:25:18,850 --> 00:25:23,063
[stuttering] I came to this school
as a girl and I blossomed into a woman."

[people laughing]

470
00:25:25,190 --> 00:25:27,067
-So far, so good.
-Oh, Sam.

471
00:25:27,234 --> 00:25:30,028
-I love this so much.
-[laughs] Word.

472
00:25:32,072 --> 00:25:34,241
"A good friend once told me...

473
00:25:34,658 --> 00:25:36,243
penguins mate for life."

474
00:25:37,536 --> 00:25:38,453
Was that me?

475
00:25:39,037 --> 00:25:40,580
I think that was me.

476
00:25:41,414 --> 00:25:43,625
[Sam chuckles]

477
00:25:43,708 --> 00:25:48,880
"And, well, the friends I've made here are
like penguins because they're for life."

478
00:25:49,047 --> 00:25:50,507
That doesn't make any sense.

479
00:25:50,715 --> 00:25:52,717
[people laughing]

480
00:25:53,426 --> 00:25:57,973
"Our time at Newton High has been
nothing short of transformational.

Dramatic pause."

482
00:26:00,725 --> 00:26:03,019
Am I supposed to pause dramatically?

in your heart to care for somebody else,

you will have succeeded.'

490
00:26:32,048 --> 00:26:35,135
-And by that metric..."
-Mom, are you crying?

491
00:26:35,218 --> 00:26:37,929
-"...I think we've already succeeded."
-Maybe.

-This speech is ridiculous.
-I know.

Look...

00:28:12,982 --> 00:28:14,818
I think we need to talk about everything.

-Can you do that?
-Yeah.

519
00:28:17,696 --> 00:28:21,533
I was thinking maybe tonight because
Sam has his senior lock-in thing,

520
00:28:21,616 --> 00:28:23,993
-and Casey's going out with Izzie.
-Okay.

521
00:28:25,036 --> 00:28:26,955
-I'll be there.
-Okay. Great.

522
00:28:31,167 --> 00:28:32,168
You know I babysit.

523
00:28:33,420 --> 00:28:34,379
Okay.

524
00:28:39,300 --> 00:28:40,135
Hey, Sam.

525
00:28:40,677 --> 00:28:42,929
There you are.
We're almost late for the lock-in.

526
00:28:43,012 --> 00:28:46,558
I packed and repacked my pajamas six times
because I didn't know what to do.

Sam...

528
00:28:48,601 --> 00:28:51,438
you once told me
that you're not a champion of anything.

529
00:28:52,105 --> 00:28:53,857
But that's not true at all.

530
00:28:54,315 --> 00:28:56,568
You're a champion of being there for me.

531
00:28:57,694 --> 00:29:01,281
I mean, I can't believe
that you gave my speech for me today.

532
00:29:01,656 --> 00:29:03,158
How did you manage to do it?

533
00:29:03,867 --> 00:29:05,452
I've thought about that a lot.

534
00:29:05,785 --> 00:29:09,414
I was thinking about how I jumped
into the pool for you,

535
00:29:09,497 --> 00:29:11,374
and how I gave a speech for you,

536
00:29:11,499 --> 00:29:14,043
and how when I kissed Bailey Bennett,
it was nice.

537
00:29:14,544 --> 00:29:15,378
Really nice.

538
00:29:16,379 --> 00:29:19,549
But not as nice
as when I kissed you, and...

539
00:29:19,924 --> 00:29:24,262
I realized that I think the reason I gave
your speech is that I'm in love with you.

Come on.

00:29:40,445 --> 00:29:42,906
[stammers]
I'm trying to get past everything.

545
00:29:45,200 --> 00:29:46,409
I'm trying...

546
00:29:49,829 --> 00:29:50,789
to forgive.

547
00:29:57,045 --> 00:29:58,546
I want to, I...

548
00:30:00,632 --> 00:30:01,966
I really do.

549
00:30:18,650 --> 00:30:19,859
I just haven't...

550
00:30:20,819 --> 00:30:22,028
been able to do it.

551
00:30:27,492 --> 00:30:29,577
Do you want to come in and talk?

552
00:30:43,383 --> 00:30:45,301
I can't believe we drove four towns away

553
00:30:45,385 --> 00:30:48,429
just to find a 7-Eleven
that serves cotton candy Slurpees.

554
00:30:48,972 --> 00:30:50,181
I have no regrets.

555
00:30:53,184 --> 00:30:54,352
So guess what?

556
00:30:56,813 --> 00:30:58,022
I had sex again.

557
00:30:59,315 --> 00:31:00,316
With Evan?

558
00:31:00,650 --> 00:31:02,110
No, with myself.

559
00:31:02,610 --> 00:31:06,155
-Still counts, though, right?
-Shut up. [chuckles]

560
00:31:07,365 --> 00:31:08,867
Yeah, with Evan.

561
00:31:10,577 --> 00:31:11,703
I really love him.

562
00:31:15,123 --> 00:31:16,040
I know you do.

563
00:31:17,417 --> 00:31:20,128
It's just,
sometimes a thing feels, like...

564
00:31:22,839 --> 00:31:23,756
so right.

565
00:31:25,842 --> 00:31:26,759

S02-Ep.09: "Ritual-licious"

Ignoring Casey's wishes, Elsa throws her a big birthday party, while Sam insists on following a decade-old birthday ritual. The bartender haunts Doug.

TRANSCRIPTION

1
00:00:08,591 --> 00:00:10,260
[Sam] Rituals are important.

2
00:00:11,803 --> 00:00:14,180
When two pods of orcas have been apart,

3
00:00:15,056 --> 00:00:17,058
they'll reunite at the surface
of the ocean

4
00:00:17,142 --> 00:00:19,019
before all diving down to the bottom.

5
00:00:21,146 --> 00:00:23,148
It's called the orca greeting ceremony.

6
00:00:25,358 --> 00:00:27,360
It's how they know everything is okay.

7
00:00:29,821 --> 00:00:31,990
Because that's what rituals do.

8
00:00:34,743 --> 00:00:36,453
They make everything okay.

9
00:00:37,537 --> 00:00:39,539

00:00:45,128 --> 00:00:47,130

12
00:01:08,568 --> 00:01:11,071
-Happy birth minute!
-[yells] Get out of my room!

13
00:01:11,154 --> 00:01:13,573
It's time for your "happy birthdays."
You get 16 this year.

14
00:01:13,698 --> 00:01:15,241
-[repeating] Happy birthday.
-Get out!

15
00:01:15,325 --> 00:01:16,993
-Happy birthday.
-Get out!

16
00:01:17,077 --> 00:01:18,953
-Happy birthday.
-Get out!

17
00:01:19,037 --> 00:01:20,371
-Get out!
-Happy birthday.

00:01:20,455 --> 00:01:21,498
Happy birthday!

[knocking at door]

20
00:01:27,003 --> 00:01:31,007
[Sam] I only got to 13 birthdays.
I still need to say it three more times.

21
00:01:31,091 --> 00:01:32,842
[yells] No! [huffs]

22
00:01:34,719 --> 00:01:36,721

23
00:01:38,723 --> 00:01:41,226

16 HAPPY BIRTHDAYS

28
00:01:52,153 --> 00:01:53,655
Go back to sleep, Edison.

EVAN TUBA
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

32
00:02:20,140 --> 00:02:25,436
I KNOW WHAT I WANT FOR MY BIRTHDAY.

33
00:02:25,937 --> 00:02:27,939
[text alert chimes]

34
00:02:29,482 --> 00:02:32,110
???
SECOND FIRST TIME!

35
00:02:33,736 --> 00:02:37,949
NOW I FEEL LIKE IT'S MY BIRTHDAY.

36
00:02:38,533 --> 00:02:40,535
[chuckles]

37
00:02:46,374 --> 00:02:49,502
[Sam] Humans are the only animals
that have a birthday ritual.

38
00:02:50,211 --> 00:02:52,797
Other animals don't use time
to measure age.

39
00:02:54,132 --> 00:02:55,967
They measure age through milestones.

40
00:02:56,050 --> 00:02:59,429
SIP-SIP HOORAY!
IT'S CASEY'S BIRTHDAY!

41
00:03:02,557 --> 00:03:05,602
There she is, my birthday girl.

42
00:03:05,685 --> 00:03:08,980
-I made you a special birthday breakfast.
-This looks like what I eat every day.

43
00:03:09,063 --> 00:03:10,398
With a strawberry.

44
00:03:11,274 --> 00:03:13,526
So any special big plans for tonight?

45
00:03:13,818 --> 00:03:16,487
Um, I'm probably just going to do
what I always do.

46
00:03:16,571 --> 00:03:20,074
I think Evan and Sharice are coming over,
and we're going to watch a movie,

47
00:03:20,158 --> 00:03:22,285
and just chill, low-key.

48
00:03:22,368 --> 00:03:23,286
No drama.

49
00:03:23,369 --> 00:03:26,789
-Happy birthday, happy birthday.
-Thank you. Hi.

50
00:03:26,873 --> 00:03:28,124
This came for you, Sam.

51
00:03:28,208 --> 00:03:30,335
That's a big envelope.
Is it from Denton?

52
00:03:30,418 --> 00:03:32,045
-That means you got in.
-Nope.

53
00:03:32,503 --> 00:03:36,132
I used $200 of my own money,
from my own bank account,

54
00:03:36,216 --> 00:03:39,177
to adopt my own baby penguin
from the penguin cam.

55
00:03:39,260 --> 00:03:40,803
You bought a penguin?

56
00:03:41,221 --> 00:03:44,182
-Adopted. Me and ten other people.
-Is it gonna live here?

57
00:03:44,265 --> 00:03:45,767
-That's kick-ass.
-No.

58
00:03:45,850 --> 00:03:47,936
She'll stay at the aquarium, obviously.

59
00:03:48,019 --> 00:03:51,022
But I'm the majority shareholder,
so I have naming rights.

60
00:03:51,105 --> 00:03:54,567
Well, you can name it Casey,
both sort of came on the same day, kinda.

61
00:03:54,651 --> 00:03:56,486
Two Caseys in one family?

62
00:03:56,569 --> 00:03:59,989
I mean, Mom's Christmas newsletter
won't make any sense.

63
00:04:00,073 --> 00:04:02,200
I can't believe you're 16.

64
00:04:02,784 --> 00:04:04,410
I still remember the day you were born.

65
00:04:04,494 --> 00:04:06,204
I remember the day you were hatched.

66
00:04:06,287 --> 00:04:08,373
Well, happy birthday.
I'll see you guys later.

67
00:04:08,456 --> 00:04:09,791
-Love you.
-Wait!

68
00:04:09,874 --> 00:04:11,417
We didn't do the Casey sandwich.

69
00:04:12,335 --> 00:04:15,338
Oh, we don't have to do that
this year, Sam.

70
00:04:15,421 --> 00:04:18,341
Yeah, we do.
It's part of the birthday ritual.

71
00:04:18,424 --> 00:04:19,509
We do it every year.

72
00:04:19,884 --> 00:04:22,553
Okay. Well, we'll do it really quick.

73
00:04:22,637 --> 00:04:24,097
-Yes.
-[Casey yells] No!

74
00:04:24,931 --> 00:04:28,559
All right, happy birthday.
Happy birthday. I'll see you guys later.

75
00:04:28,643 --> 00:04:29,602
Bye, honey.

76
00:04:32,188 --> 00:04:33,439
Mwah!

77
00:04:34,274 --> 00:04:36,484
-Okay. I need to go.
-Wait!

78
00:04:36,567 --> 00:04:38,528
You need to drink
your birthday chocolate milk.

79
00:04:38,611 --> 00:04:40,989
Sam, I can't drink this.

80
00:04:41,614 --> 00:04:44,575
-It's like it's looking at me.
-But it's part of the ritual.

81
00:04:47,537 --> 00:04:49,622
Mmm! Ritual-licious.

82
00:04:49,706 --> 00:04:51,207
WEAR UNDERWEAR BACKWARDS
(ME, NOT CASEY)

83
00:04:51,291 --> 00:04:53,293
CASEY SANDWICH.
BIRTHDAY MILK.

84
00:05:00,049 --> 00:05:02,051
[mobile phone ringing]

85
00:05:03,303 --> 00:05:04,262
I have to go.

86
00:05:04,345 --> 00:05:07,307
If you want to be a slave
to time, man, go for it.

87
00:05:07,974 --> 00:05:09,809
I don't know what that means. Bye.

88
00:05:11,102 --> 00:05:13,062
Oh! Bailey Bennett.

89
00:05:13,563 --> 00:05:15,898
Is this a casual relationship

90
00:05:16,065 --> 00:05:17,775
or a regular relationship?

91
00:05:17,859 --> 00:05:21,571
This is not a relationship.
This is nothing. [laughs]

92
00:05:21,654 --> 00:05:23,740
We kiss sometimes and that's it.

93
00:05:24,407 --> 00:05:26,951
-And I can't tell anyone, correct?
-Correct.

94
00:05:28,703 --> 00:05:32,623
Can I tell people that I made out
with someone, but not say who it is?

95
00:05:33,333 --> 00:05:34,625
I don't care.

96
00:05:35,460 --> 00:05:37,211
Okay. Thank you for your clarity.

97
00:05:48,556 --> 00:05:50,016
Look at this place.

98
00:05:50,308 --> 00:05:52,518
I always forget how nice it is.
I feel underdressed.

99
00:05:52,602 --> 00:05:54,312
Nah, you look like
all the other chauffeurs.

100
00:05:54,395 --> 00:05:55,563
Shut up, you punk.

101
00:05:55,646 --> 00:05:57,065
You ready for this?

102
00:05:57,148 --> 00:05:58,274
Sure am, are you?

103
00:05:59,275 --> 00:06:00,109
Not really.

104
00:06:01,819 --> 00:06:05,073
Wow, you are...
You're surprisingly good at this.

105
00:06:06,157 --> 00:06:08,409
Yeah, I mean, it's basically just like...

106
00:06:08,493 --> 00:06:10,495
running, but with tires instead of feet.

107
00:06:14,082 --> 00:06:15,249
So, um...

108
00:06:15,833 --> 00:06:17,001
How's school?

109
00:06:17,877 --> 00:06:18,753
It's fine.

110
00:06:19,754 --> 00:06:23,633
I don't have any friends,
so I got a lot of time for my studies.

111
00:06:24,258 --> 00:06:27,553
What about your friend Auggie or Ozzy?

112
00:06:27,637 --> 00:06:30,431
Izzie. We're not really friends anymore.

113
00:06:31,182 --> 00:06:33,559
Oh! [stammers] I'm out of the loop.

114
00:06:33,643 --> 00:06:34,519
It's fine.

115
00:06:34,602 --> 00:06:36,729
You got your own stuff going on.

116
00:06:38,064 --> 00:06:41,317
Mom moving out, then back in and...

117
00:06:41,943 --> 00:06:43,611
hopefully back out again?

118
00:06:43,694 --> 00:06:44,904
Who knows.

119
00:06:44,987 --> 00:06:46,656
Make this right here.

120
00:06:48,241 --> 00:06:50,410
Look at that, you signaled and everything.

121
00:06:50,910 --> 00:06:53,287
-I'm not an idiot.
-Yeah, I know.

122
00:06:54,956 --> 00:06:56,749
So whatever happens...

123
00:06:56,833 --> 00:06:59,544
with Mom and I, it's between us, okay?

124
00:07:00,461 --> 00:07:01,379
It's...

125
00:07:01,712 --> 00:07:03,589
She's always going to love you guys.

126
00:07:03,673 --> 00:07:06,092
She's always going to have your back.
So don't...

127
00:07:06,426 --> 00:07:08,302
Don't worry about it. It's our thing.

128
00:07:08,678 --> 00:07:09,637
I know.

129
00:07:10,972 --> 00:07:12,765
It's just--
Whenever she does something nice,

130
00:07:12,849 --> 00:07:14,600
I remember seeing her kiss that bartender.

131
00:07:15,893 --> 00:07:19,897
[breathes deeply] Sometimes it's just,
like, all I can think about.

132
00:07:21,190 --> 00:07:23,067
Sorry. You know, I wish...

133
00:07:23,943 --> 00:07:25,611
I wish you never saw that.

134
00:07:26,154 --> 00:07:27,280
Me, too.

135
00:07:29,657 --> 00:07:33,035
Hey, but she hasn't done anything
to piss me off in a while, so...

136
00:07:34,036 --> 00:07:36,289
You know, it's probably
just a matter of time.

137
00:07:36,831 --> 00:07:38,875
-Yeah, probably.
-[Casey laughs]

138
00:07:39,292 --> 00:07:42,128
[Elsa] Okay, everyone!
The birthday girl is almost here.

139
00:07:42,211 --> 00:07:44,338
So what are we going to say
when she gets here?

140
00:07:44,422 --> 00:07:45,548
[all at once] Surprise.

141
00:07:45,631 --> 00:07:48,759
Yeah, but less like you're at a funeral.
Okay?

142
00:07:48,843 --> 00:07:50,386
Who says "surprise" at a funeral?

143
00:07:50,470 --> 00:07:53,598
Hey, Mrs. G, this is some party.

144
00:07:53,681 --> 00:07:56,267
Well, Casey's never had
a big birthday party,

145
00:07:56,350 --> 00:07:58,936
so I figured... 16,  perfect year.

146
00:07:59,020 --> 00:08:02,940
Yeah, totally.
And I love the... sentiment, um...

147
00:08:03,858 --> 00:08:07,945
I think that Casey said
that she wanted, like, something small.

148
00:08:08,654 --> 00:08:13,618
I know. But this has been
a really hard year for her.

149
00:08:13,951 --> 00:08:16,245
Because of... well...

150
00:08:17,288 --> 00:08:18,498
me, so...

151
00:08:19,081 --> 00:08:22,251
I need to do this, and... she deserves it.

152
00:08:22,335 --> 00:08:23,377
-Yeah.
-Right?

153
00:08:23,461 --> 00:08:25,087
-Yeah, she does.
-[both chuckle]

154
00:08:26,047 --> 00:08:27,298
Whatcha working on, busy beaver?

155
00:08:27,715 --> 00:08:29,592
Making a birthday comic for Casey.

156
00:08:29,675 --> 00:08:31,052
It's part of the ritual.

157
00:08:31,135 --> 00:08:33,638
Oh, shit, I didn't get her anything.
Throw my name on that?

158
00:08:36,474 --> 00:08:38,434
Wait, what's up with you?
You seem different.

159
00:08:38,518 --> 00:08:39,936
What do you mean?

160
00:08:40,311 --> 00:08:43,523
You have a secret, Sam Gardner.
Look at me.

161
00:08:43,648 --> 00:08:45,650
[guests chattering]

162
00:08:47,902 --> 00:08:49,111
You've been smooching.

163
00:08:49,570 --> 00:08:50,530
True.

164
00:08:50,613 --> 00:08:53,866
Look at you! Under my tutelage!
I knew it.

165
00:08:53,950 --> 00:08:55,326
So, who's the lucky lady?

166
00:08:55,910 --> 00:08:56,953
I can't tell anyone.

167
00:08:57,370 --> 00:08:59,038
-Sam...
-Hi, Sam.

168
00:09:02,166 --> 00:09:03,834
Okay, I see.

169
00:09:04,544 --> 00:09:05,836
Say no more, brother.

170
00:09:05,920 --> 00:09:07,630
I hear you loud and clear.

171
00:09:08,047 --> 00:09:08,923
Okay.

172
00:09:10,007 --> 00:09:11,092
They're coming!

173
00:09:11,175 --> 00:09:12,760
[Elsa] Everybody, hide.

174
00:09:16,639 --> 00:09:17,598
Sam, honey.

175
00:09:27,441 --> 00:09:30,027
Look, I'm all for hiding
if there's a good reason,

176
00:09:30,111 --> 00:09:31,153
but who're we fooling?

177
00:09:31,237 --> 00:09:33,906
That kid's holding a paper plate
in front of his face.

178
00:09:33,990 --> 00:09:35,992
Why am I crouching in a skirt?

179
00:09:36,367 --> 00:09:38,494
-[whispering] Doug and I had sex.
-Really?

180
00:09:38,578 --> 00:09:39,829
That's amazing.

181
00:09:40,454 --> 00:09:42,248
Are you back together? What's going on?

182
00:09:42,331 --> 00:09:44,292
No, he's been distant.

183
00:09:45,376 --> 00:09:46,919
He slept in the sunroom.

184
00:09:47,336 --> 00:09:49,630
Here's what you got to do:
throw yourself at him.

185
00:09:50,214 --> 00:09:52,258
I normally wouldn't say that to someone,

186
00:09:52,341 --> 00:09:55,094
but this is a critical moment
and I want you to be happy.

187
00:10:00,683 --> 00:10:02,852
Hey, dude, what are you doing here?

188
00:10:02,935 --> 00:10:06,314
There's a surprise party for you inside
and I hate surprises.

189
00:10:06,397 --> 00:10:09,650
-Yeah, me too.
-No. Sorry, kid. We gotta do it.

190
00:10:09,734 --> 00:10:12,069
-Thank you. Thanks for that.
-No problem.

191
00:10:12,153 --> 00:10:14,322
[door unlocks and opens]

192
00:10:16,157 --> 00:10:18,534
[all yell at once] Surprise!

193
00:10:18,618 --> 00:10:19,910
Happy birthday.

194
00:10:19,994 --> 00:10:21,370
[cheering and applauding]

195
00:10:21,454 --> 00:10:22,413
Hi.

196
00:10:23,122 --> 00:10:23,956
Hi, guys.

197
00:10:25,041 --> 00:10:26,334
[Evan] Are you surprised?

198
00:10:27,126 --> 00:10:30,171
Yeah. Hey. Hi.

199
00:10:30,254 --> 00:10:32,590
Hey, Casey, happy birthday again.

200
00:10:32,673 --> 00:10:34,717
Time to play Ickle Bickle Beanstalk.

201
00:10:34,800 --> 00:10:35,885
Not right now, Sam.

202
00:10:36,677 --> 00:10:38,054
[girl] Happy birthday, Casey.

203
00:10:38,638 --> 00:10:42,558
-What's Ickle Bickle Beanstalk?
-It's a silly game I made up ten years ago

204
00:10:42,642 --> 00:10:45,519
after two glasses of wine,
when the kids were climbing the walls.

205
00:10:45,603 --> 00:10:49,231
I don't know, somehow it made it
into Casey's birthday ritual.

206
00:10:49,732 --> 00:10:52,652
I'm shocked it's lasted ten years.

207
00:10:52,735 --> 00:10:54,945
Come on. I'll hide the Ickle Bickle.

208
00:10:55,029 --> 00:10:56,030
No, I said no.

209
00:10:56,614 --> 00:10:58,366
But I don't want Edison to die.

210
00:10:58,949 --> 00:11:02,495
Not many people know this,
but Edison isn't my first tortoise.

211
00:11:04,121 --> 00:11:05,206
First...

212
00:11:06,290 --> 00:11:07,541
there was Tesla.

213
00:11:09,043 --> 00:11:13,297
But on Casey's 12th birthday, she broke
her arm and we had to go to the hospital

214
00:11:13,381 --> 00:11:15,174
and I never completed our ritual.

215
00:11:17,051 --> 00:11:19,178
When we got home, Tesla was dead.

216
00:11:20,721 --> 00:11:23,557
My parents said it had nothing to do
with the ritual.

217
00:11:23,641 --> 00:11:26,394
But that morning
Tesla was the picture of health.

218
00:11:27,645 --> 00:11:31,023
He was active and alert.
His eyes were clear and bright.

219
00:11:31,107 --> 00:11:33,943
His stool was solid and black.
So explain that.

220
00:11:36,237 --> 00:11:38,989
Ever since then,
I always complete the ritual.

221
00:11:39,824 --> 00:11:40,950
Always.

222
00:11:43,035 --> 00:11:44,078
Hey, it's okay.

223
00:11:44,161 --> 00:11:46,372
[guests chattering]

224
00:11:46,956 --> 00:11:49,834
It's okay. There's no reason
to get upset. Okay?

225
00:11:50,376 --> 00:11:51,460
You want tighter or looser?

226
00:11:51,544 --> 00:11:52,795
-Tighter.
-Okay.

227
00:11:52,878 --> 00:11:54,505
-[guests chattering]

228
00:11:54,630 --> 00:11:55,798
[Sam sighs in relief]

229
00:11:55,923 --> 00:11:57,299
Is that better?

230
00:11:58,217 --> 00:12:00,219
-Yeah.
-Okay. Okay.

231
00:12:04,056 --> 00:12:05,474
I'll leave it alone for now.

232
00:12:05,558 --> 00:12:09,520
But I'll be back in 16 minutes, and then
we'll play Ickle Bickle Beanstalk.

233
00:12:10,104 --> 00:12:12,022
Sixteen 'cause it's my 16th birthday?

234
00:12:12,106 --> 00:12:14,734
Yes, because it's your 16th birthday.

235
00:12:14,817 --> 00:12:17,611
And the square root of 16 is four,
and that's my number.

236
00:12:17,695 --> 00:12:20,114
So it's the perfect amount of time. Okay.

237
00:12:20,698 --> 00:12:22,575
Sixteen minutes, starting now.

238
00:12:22,658 --> 00:12:24,744
-[guests chattering]
-[music playing]

239
00:12:30,541 --> 00:12:32,543
So, you enjoying your party?

240
00:12:32,626 --> 00:12:35,838
-So... nope!
-Hey, where are you going?

241
00:12:35,921 --> 00:12:39,383
Upstairs to change 'cause my mom invited
1,000 people over without telling me.

242
00:12:39,467 --> 00:12:42,928
So is it too early to sneak away
for our first-second time?

243
00:12:43,012 --> 00:12:44,722
Our second-first time?

244
00:12:44,805 --> 00:12:46,182
Yes, it is too early.

245
00:12:46,265 --> 00:12:47,558
But that would be a really good way

246
00:12:47,641 --> 00:12:49,769
to get back at her for throwing me
a party I didn't want.

247
00:12:49,852 --> 00:12:53,022
Oh, yeah, I mean, she's,
like, a major jerk.

248
00:12:53,481 --> 00:12:55,316
Look, I know, like, honestly,

249
00:12:55,399 --> 00:12:57,610
I know this isn't exactly what you wanted,

250
00:12:57,693 --> 00:13:01,697
but it's happening, and...
and it's kind of fun. I mean, look!

251
00:13:01,781 --> 00:13:05,451
That guy's dancing with a paper plate
in front of his face. [laughs]

252
00:13:05,868 --> 00:13:07,578
He's the Sia of this party.

253
00:13:07,661 --> 00:13:10,748
So why don't you just
dance your little butt upstairs,

254
00:13:10,831 --> 00:13:14,251
you know, lose the uniform,
and get some regular clothes,

255
00:13:14,335 --> 00:13:16,337
and can we just try to have some fun?

256
00:13:16,420 --> 00:13:18,172
I vote: hell yes!

Sixteen years old.

-Can you believe it?
-I can't believe it.

270
00:13:52,414 --> 00:13:56,502
She was so...
small and wrinkly as an infant.

271
00:13:56,836 --> 00:14:00,548
She looked like a baked potato
that was microwaved too long.

272
00:14:01,131 --> 00:14:03,342
She was such an unattractive baby.

273
00:14:04,343 --> 00:14:06,011
-She's so pretty now.
-Yeah.

274
00:14:08,389 --> 00:14:11,517
[sighs] Gee, I'm sorry. Are you okay?

275
00:14:18,816 --> 00:14:20,234
No, I'm fine.

276
00:14:26,115 --> 00:14:27,741
So I stepped out to get some air,

277
00:14:27,825 --> 00:14:31,203
only to find the bench
that I so lovingly painted... mutilated.

278
00:14:31,328 --> 00:14:33,205
I mean, the "Live"
was completely rubbed off.

279
00:14:33,289 --> 00:14:36,500
And then, when I asked
about the school's vandalism policy...

280
00:14:36,584 --> 00:14:37,710
there isn't one!

281
00:14:37,793 --> 00:14:39,753

Oh, thank God.

Will they? Won't they?
I mean, you kids drive me nuts.

284

-What?
-Come on.

285
00:14:46,635 --> 00:14:49,638
I know my Sammy's kissing somebody.
Who else could it be, but you?

286
00:14:49,722 --> 00:14:51,724
Oh, no, Sam and I are not kissing.

287
00:14:52,808 --> 00:14:54,685
Wait, is he kissing? Who is he kissing?

288
00:14:55,102 --> 00:14:58,522
Did I say "kissing"? I meant blissing.

289
00:14:58,606 --> 00:15:02,026
As in, giving someone
emotional and mental bliss

290
00:15:02,109 --> 00:15:05,738
through...
platonic conversation. Obviously.

Okay, cool. Yeah, no. Dance floor seems
like a good place to hide out.

00:16:18,727 --> 00:16:20,646
Yes, you promised. Come on.

313
00:16:21,397 --> 00:16:22,648
Okay, fine.

314
00:16:23,273 --> 00:16:25,150
-Edison lives. Thank you.
-[Paige] Sam.

315
00:16:26,026 --> 00:16:27,778
-Did you kiss someone?
-Yes.

316
00:16:27,861 --> 00:16:28,779
Who?

317
00:16:29,488 --> 00:16:31,490
Bailey Bennett was very clear.

318
00:16:31,573 --> 00:16:33,283
I'm not supposed to tell.

319
00:16:33,367 --> 00:16:35,703
It's a rule, and I love rules.

320
00:16:36,578 --> 00:16:37,913
Plus, she's pretty scary.

321
00:16:39,665 --> 00:16:42,835
I'm sorry, Paige, but I have a privacy
agreement with the girl I've been kissing.

322
00:16:42,918 --> 00:16:44,294
I'm sure you understand.

323
00:16:44,712 --> 00:16:45,713
I don't.

324
00:16:46,255 --> 00:16:49,133
-Bummer.
-So you're really not going to tell me?

325
00:16:49,216 --> 00:16:50,300
Yes, exactly.

326
00:16:53,429 --> 00:16:55,514
You, Evan. Hide this.

327
00:16:55,597 --> 00:16:57,808
What is this? Like, a magic gorilla?

328
00:16:57,891 --> 00:17:01,186
Don't be silly. It's the Ickle Bickle.
Hide it somewhere so we can find it.

329
00:17:01,770 --> 00:17:02,896
Okay.

330
00:17:03,647 --> 00:17:06,025
-Come on, let's swish-boom.
-Really?

331
00:17:06,900 --> 00:17:09,028
Oh, my God.
I am the best sister in the world.

332
00:17:09,319 --> 00:17:10,279
Okay.

333
00:17:10,571 --> 00:17:12,698
Swish-boom. Ready? Go!

334
00:17:15,200 --> 00:17:17,619
Swish-boom. Swish-boom.

335
00:17:17,703 --> 00:17:20,080
Swish-boom. Swish-boom.

336
00:17:21,248 --> 00:17:22,374
Oh, there you are.

337
00:17:22,833 --> 00:17:24,585
Kind of got cut off back there.

338
00:17:24,668 --> 00:17:26,128
I'm sorry. I just...

339
00:17:27,046 --> 00:17:29,673
I'm still working everything out.

340
00:17:29,757 --> 00:17:31,717
I just... I need more time.

341
00:17:31,800 --> 00:17:32,843
I get it.

342
00:17:37,723 --> 00:17:39,391
That is one hot mama.

343
00:17:40,059 --> 00:17:40,976
What'd you say?

344
00:17:41,060 --> 00:17:43,187
I said, "That is one hot mama."

345
00:17:45,147 --> 00:17:47,191
It's a compliment, on all fronts.

346
00:17:47,316 --> 00:17:49,151
[laughs]

347
00:17:50,152 --> 00:17:51,528
Aw, shut up, Zahid.

348
00:17:56,450 --> 00:17:59,244
Was I supposed to tell them
I finished hiding that gorilla thing?

349
00:17:59,661 --> 00:18:01,872
To be honest,
I'm a little fuzzy on the rules.

350
00:18:01,955 --> 00:18:03,540
But doesn't Casey look pretty?

351
00:18:03,624 --> 00:18:05,626
Hey, chill out, Beth.

352
00:18:11,090 --> 00:18:13,634
[boy] Wow, super cool dance moves.

353
00:18:14,551 --> 00:18:16,345
[girl] I love candy in a cup.

354
00:18:17,846 --> 00:18:19,681
Hey, Newton. Hey, Sam.

355
00:18:26,855 --> 00:18:28,148
There she is.

356
00:18:28,232 --> 00:18:30,859
I made pizza rolls.
Having fun at your party yet?

357
00:18:30,943 --> 00:18:33,862
Yeah, I was until the bitches
from Clayton Prep showed up.

358
00:18:33,946 --> 00:18:36,740
-Who the hell invited them?
-Izzie and the track team?

359
00:18:36,824 --> 00:18:38,659
-Yeah.
-I did.

360
00:18:38,909 --> 00:18:41,328
I thought it would be a good way
to mend fences.

361
00:18:41,453 --> 00:18:43,664
-It's your birthday.
-No, that is not your place.

362
00:18:43,747 --> 00:18:46,542
-I hate them.
-I'm so sorry, Casey. I...

363
00:18:47,209 --> 00:18:49,211
-Do you want me to ask them to leave?
-Yeah.

364
00:18:49,294 --> 00:18:52,047
And while you're at it, can you ask
everybody else to leave, too?

365
00:18:52,131 --> 00:18:55,092
I never wanted this.
I wanted something small.

366
00:18:55,384 --> 00:18:58,428
But... you don't listen.
Of course, you don't care.

367
00:18:58,512 --> 00:19:01,682
Hey, Case, take it easy.
She went through a lot of trouble.

368
00:19:01,765 --> 00:19:03,767
Are you seriously defending her?

369
00:19:03,976 --> 00:19:05,102
Whose side are you on?

370
00:19:05,686 --> 00:19:08,689
There's no sides,
she was doing something really nice.

371
00:19:09,022 --> 00:19:11,066
Hey... stop being a brat.

372
00:19:11,150 --> 00:19:12,776
Are you kidding me?

373
00:19:22,494 --> 00:19:26,707
Wait! We have to find the Ickle Bickle.
Evan didn't even go up there, you nut.

374
00:19:26,790 --> 00:19:29,251
[yells] Leave me alone!
I don't care about the Ickle Bickle

375
00:19:29,334 --> 00:19:31,962
or any of your stupid rituals.
It's not even about me!

376
00:19:32,045 --> 00:19:34,089
[sobs] It's just about Sam, Sam, Sam,

377
00:19:34,173 --> 00:19:36,633
just like everything else
in my sorry-ass life.

378
00:19:37,009 --> 00:19:38,677
[whimpers]

379
00:19:44,224 --> 00:19:46,518
-Drama.
-That's enough.

380
00:19:52,691 --> 00:19:53,650
[Elsa] Hey.

381
00:19:54,860 --> 00:19:58,238
Sam. I saw what happened with Casey.
Are you okay?

382
00:19:58,322 --> 00:20:00,157
No, I'm furious!

383
00:20:00,407 --> 00:20:03,285
Casey said I was making her party
all about me,

384
00:20:03,368 --> 00:20:06,788
but I was only trying to complete
the ritual, which is all about her.

385
00:20:06,872 --> 00:20:11,418
And also maybe a teensy-weensy bit
about Edison too, but mostly her.

386
00:20:15,756 --> 00:20:16,632
Okay.

387
00:20:18,258 --> 00:20:20,802
Originally, the birthday ritual

388
00:20:20,886 --> 00:20:25,015
was meant to help you focus on Casey
for her big day.

389
00:20:25,098 --> 00:20:29,561
But, I... I guess over the years
things have kind of shifted,

390
00:20:29,645 --> 00:20:33,899
and I think maybe today
you were making it about yourself.

391
00:20:34,858 --> 00:20:37,152
It's not about me. It's about the ritual.

392
00:20:37,236 --> 00:20:40,530
-You don't break rituals.
-Actually, it's about Casey.

393
00:20:43,951 --> 00:20:49,665
Just like I...
thought Casey would want a big party.

394
00:20:49,998 --> 00:20:52,834
When actually, that's what I wanted.

395
00:20:55,545 --> 00:20:57,756
-Yeah, big oversight.
-Yeah.

396
00:20:58,590 --> 00:21:02,427
I think... we both owe Casey an apology.

397
00:21:03,345 --> 00:21:06,556
I wouldn't say that we owe her an apology.

398
00:21:08,016 --> 00:21:10,769
But, I'm okay with giving her one anyway.

399
00:21:14,147 --> 00:21:17,276
Look. I found it, the Ickle Bickle.

400
00:21:17,693 --> 00:21:20,320
Ickle Bickle Beanstalk!
Ickle Bickle Beanstalk!

401
00:21:27,077 --> 00:21:28,287
He seems fine, right?

402
00:21:28,370 --> 00:21:30,372
Yeah, Sam's fine.

403
00:21:33,917 --> 00:21:34,918
So...

404
00:21:35,836 --> 00:21:38,088
Last night was really wonderful.

405
00:21:40,007 --> 00:21:42,884
-Felt like we were connecting, didn't it?
-Yeah.

406
00:21:42,968 --> 00:21:45,220
Like we were us again, finally.

407
00:21:45,721 --> 00:21:47,180
After forever.

408
00:21:47,639 --> 00:21:49,474
Just hold on one sec, okay?

409
00:21:56,648 --> 00:21:58,233
So, if you want to talk...

410
00:21:59,443 --> 00:22:01,778
[stammers] I don't want to talk about it.

411
00:22:02,362 --> 00:22:04,072
But if I do I'll let you know.

412
00:22:10,746 --> 00:22:13,415
-[noise maker toots]
-[knocking at door]

413
00:22:15,417 --> 00:22:17,711
Leave me alone, Mom or Evan.

414
00:22:19,421 --> 00:22:20,255
Hey.

415
00:22:22,716 --> 00:22:23,550
Can I come in?

416
00:22:25,719 --> 00:22:26,553
Okay.

417
00:22:29,181 --> 00:22:33,143
Your brother's all jazzed up because he
found this creepy little gorilla thingy.

418
00:22:33,727 --> 00:22:37,272
-It's the Ickle Bickle.
-Yeah. That's what he told me.

419
00:22:39,107 --> 00:22:40,025
I like you guys.

420
00:22:43,904 --> 00:22:45,530
Dude, I'm sorry.

421
00:22:46,698 --> 00:22:47,866
About everything.

422
00:22:49,701 --> 00:22:52,204
I was a dick... and I got jealous,

423
00:22:52,287 --> 00:22:55,165
and I was afraid of losing
someone that I love.

424
00:22:55,248 --> 00:22:57,334
I would never come between you and Nate.

425
00:22:57,417 --> 00:22:58,377
Screw him.

426
00:22:59,211 --> 00:23:01,838
No, I was afraid of losing you.

427
00:23:03,006 --> 00:23:04,257
-Oh.
-I just...

428
00:23:05,008 --> 00:23:06,760
Before you got to Clayton, I...

429
00:23:07,594 --> 00:23:09,304
felt so out of place.

430
00:23:10,097 --> 00:23:11,640
Like I couldn't be myself.

431
00:23:12,933 --> 00:23:16,728
And with Nate,
our lives are just so different.

432
00:23:16,812 --> 00:23:19,022
Like, he's a huge douche and you're not?

433
00:23:19,106 --> 00:23:20,148
-Yes.
-[both chuckle]

434
00:23:23,985 --> 00:23:27,531
And then you and I got into that big fight
and we stopped talking.

435
00:23:28,323 --> 00:23:30,742
And... I missed you.

436
00:23:32,828 --> 00:23:35,163
I, like, really, really missed you.

437
00:23:37,416 --> 00:23:39,042
And I just want my girl back.

438
00:23:43,630 --> 00:23:45,924
Sorry if that sounds stalkerish.

439
00:23:46,508 --> 00:23:47,509
[laughs] It does.

440
00:23:49,261 --> 00:23:51,471
But I feel the same. So...

441
00:23:52,055 --> 00:23:52,973
it's cool.

442
00:23:55,851 --> 00:23:58,770
Let's forehead promise
to never leave each other again.

443
00:24:00,063 --> 00:24:00,939
Okay.

444
00:24:01,606 --> 00:24:02,607
What is that?

445
00:24:02,691 --> 00:24:04,568
Come here, I'll show you.

446
00:24:09,865 --> 00:24:11,032
[both chuckle]

447
00:24:14,202 --> 00:24:15,871
-That's it.
-[laughs]

448
00:24:17,747 --> 00:24:20,125
Is it obvious that I just made this up?

449
00:24:20,250 --> 00:24:22,252
[both chuckle]

450
00:24:30,260 --> 00:24:32,262
-Hey, Casey, I...
-Mom.

451
00:24:34,806 --> 00:24:37,058
Oh, sorry. I just...

452
00:24:37,392 --> 00:24:39,603
I just wanted to let you know
that cake's ready.

453
00:24:39,686 --> 00:24:41,897
Yeah, we're gonna be down in a second.

454
00:24:41,980 --> 00:24:43,440
Hi, Mrs. Gardner.

455
00:24:48,653 --> 00:24:52,365
[Sam] In nature, there are a lot
of rituals that no one ever questions.

456
00:24:52,449 --> 00:24:55,744
Like, why a peacock spreads
its tail feathers,

457
00:24:55,827 --> 00:24:57,871
or why a gorilla beats its chest.

458
00:24:57,954 --> 00:24:58,788
-Hey.
-Hey.

459
00:24:59,080 --> 00:25:00,749
I'm sorry I was being lame earlier.

460
00:25:00,832 --> 00:25:01,750
Yeah, it's...

461
00:25:03,752 --> 00:25:06,546
[Sam] It's just necessary
for mating or survival.

462
00:25:08,715 --> 00:25:11,343
I was going to say sorry too, but...

463
00:25:11,843 --> 00:25:13,553
-I guess we're okay.
-Yeah.

464
00:25:14,346 --> 00:25:17,599
I'm officially asking for a rain check
on my birthday gift.

465
00:25:18,308 --> 00:25:19,434
Yeah, granted.

466
00:25:21,686 --> 00:25:23,480
Hey. Where is everybody?

467
00:25:24,231 --> 00:25:25,398
I sent them home.

468
00:25:25,482 --> 00:25:27,609
All right, you guys, come on.
Let's have some cake.

469
00:25:27,692 --> 00:25:30,278
[Sam] Humans, however,
have a lot of unnecessary rituals

470
00:25:30,362 --> 00:25:32,781
that have nothing to do
with mating or survival.

471
00:25:32,864 --> 00:25:36,368
-♪ Happy birthday to you ♪
-No, no singing.

472
00:25:36,451 --> 00:25:38,870
Casey hates the "Happy Birthday" song,
right?

473
00:25:39,538 --> 00:25:42,165
Yeah. Thanks for remembering.

474
00:25:42,249 --> 00:25:45,961
Okay, let's sing "Twinkle, Twinkle,
Little Star" instead. I'll start.

475
00:25:46,044 --> 00:25:49,381
♪ Twinkle, twinkle, little star ♪

476
00:25:49,464 --> 00:25:52,592
♪ How I wonder what you are ♪

477
00:25:52,676 --> 00:25:55,762
♪ Up above the world so high ♪

478
00:25:55,845 --> 00:25:58,932

00:26:02,227 --> 00:26:05,397
♪ How I wonder what you are ♪

481
00:26:07,232 --> 00:26:08,358
Thanks for the party, Mom.

482
00:26:08,441 --> 00:26:09,776
Honey, I'm so sorry.

483
00:26:09,859 --> 00:26:11,361
No, it's okay.

484
00:26:11,653 --> 00:26:12,487
Really.

485
00:26:12,862 --> 00:26:14,364
This is a weird family.

486
00:26:14,447 --> 00:26:17,075
Yeah. But doesn't Casey look pretty?

487
00:26:17,826 --> 00:26:18,994
What, you too?

488
00:26:19,077 --> 00:26:20,787
["Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"

♪ I come home in the morning light ♪

♪ My mother says,
"When you gonna live your life right?" ♪

491
00:26:27,544 --> 00:26:31,256
[Sam] But even though we don't need
rituals in the same way as animals...

492
00:26:33,508 --> 00:26:35,385
some of them are still kind of nice.

493
00:26:37,137 --> 00:26:38,221
What's up?

494
00:26:39,055 --> 00:26:39,973
Not much.

495
00:26:40,056 --> 00:26:41,516
I found the Ickle Bickle.

496
00:26:41,600 --> 00:26:43,059
It was in the sunroom.

497
00:26:43,143 --> 00:26:44,311
Yeah, I heard.

498
00:26:45,186 --> 00:26:47,272
I'm sorry I didn't finish playing.

499
00:26:47,355 --> 00:26:48,982
I know how much it means to you.

500
00:26:49,649 --> 00:26:52,027
It's okay.
I think I was being annoying.

501
00:26:52,402 --> 00:26:53,320
You were.

502
00:26:53,737 --> 00:26:57,282
But I was a pain, too, so...
maybe we can call it even.

503
00:26:57,741 --> 00:26:58,575
Deal.

504
00:27:00,493 --> 00:27:01,494
You know...

505
00:27:02,120 --> 00:27:05,040
there's still one more part
of the birthday ritual.

506
00:27:05,123 --> 00:27:06,625
I was hoping you'd say that.

507
00:27:08,376 --> 00:27:12,088
What are Little Dude and Little Sis
getting into this year?

508
00:27:12,172 --> 00:27:14,049
Discovering the Souther Pole?

509
00:27:14,132 --> 00:27:16,509
No, but good idea for next year.

510
00:27:17,385 --> 00:27:20,847
[Casey laughs] We're so fast.

511
00:27:23,058 --> 00:27:24,517
Drahid.

512
00:27:24,601 --> 00:27:25,935
-That's Zahid...
-Yeah.

513
00:27:26,019 --> 00:27:26,936
...as a dragon.

514
00:27:27,646 --> 00:27:30,940
You know, I think this is my favorite part
of the birthday ritual.

515
00:27:32,025 --> 00:27:34,653
I'm going to miss it
when you're away at school next year.

516
00:27:34,736 --> 00:27:37,447
I won't be that far,
I'll only be at Denton.

517
00:27:37,864 --> 00:27:40,825
-You will?
-Yes. I got my acceptance letter

518
00:27:40,909 --> 00:27:43,578
to the scientific illustration program
this afternoon.

519
00:27:44,663 --> 00:27:45,955
That's huge news!

520
00:27:46,039 --> 00:27:48,375
-Ow!
-Why didn't you say anything?

521
00:27:49,209 --> 00:27:51,294
[sighs] Today is your day.

522
00:27:55,382 --> 00:27:57,634
-Stop doing that.
-That's so annoying.

523
00:27:59,219 --> 00:28:00,595
Sam...

524
00:28:01,346 --> 00:28:03,473
[sighs] You're going to do big things.

525
00:28:04,057 --> 00:28:05,975
-I know.
-[Casey chuckles]

526
00:28:06,059 --> 00:28:08,144
Hey, who wants to watch a movie?

527
00:28:08,228 --> 00:28:10,689
No violence, but I'll allow exposed butts.

528
00:28:10,772 --> 00:28:13,191
I like butts. Should we get Dad?

529
00:28:13,274 --> 00:28:14,484
Sure.

530
00:28:14,567 --> 00:28:16,319
I don't know where he is.

531
00:28:16,403 --> 00:28:17,654
He was just here.

Sam loses his portfolio for his art school application and panics. Megan gets flirty with Doug, who makes a decision about Elsa. Julia calls Miles.

TRANSCRIPTION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

164
00:08:43,940 --> 00:08:45,942
TRUE

165
00:08:51,364 --> 00:08:54,825
EVAN TUBA
HEY WASSUP?

166
00:08:55,326 --> 00:08:58,621
-[text alert whooshes]
-[typing]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[clears throat]
I'm going to take a shower.

457
00:23:47,050 --> 00:23:50,595
You know, if you want...
you know, maybe we could...

458
00:23:51,721 --> 00:23:53,849
do couples therapy
or something like that?

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

00:24:06,778 --> 00:24:07,863

Hi, it's Sam, Sam Gardner.

3
00:00:10,760 --> 00:00:13,972
It's Monday at four o'clock,
our scheduled appointment time.

4
00:00:14,556 --> 00:00:17,142
I didn't know what to do,
so I decided to call.

5
00:00:19,602 --> 00:00:21,021
Now it's 4:01.

6
00:00:21,521 --> 00:00:23,273
Today, if we had a session,

7
00:00:23,356 --> 00:00:25,650
I would tell you
that I'm very confused about Paige

8
00:00:25,734 --> 00:00:27,694
because of what happened in the igloo.

9
00:00:28,236 --> 00:00:29,946
Then you'd tell me what to do.

10
00:00:30,238 --> 00:00:32,240
Anyway, Paige gave me a hand-job,

11
00:00:32,323 --> 00:00:35,076
but now she won't even hold hands with me.

12
00:00:35,160 --> 00:00:36,828
A hand-job is when a girl--

Hi, it's Sam, Sam Gardner?

15
00:00:43,334 --> 00:00:46,671
I had a plain turkey sandwich today
that had very stale bread,

16
00:00:46,755 --> 00:00:50,258
and I had nothing to wash it down with.
It was an aggravating lunch.

17
00:00:50,341 --> 00:00:51,801
Also, I got hit by a car.

18
00:00:51,885 --> 00:00:54,637
It was slow moving, so I'm fine. Okay.

[voicemail beeping]

20
00:00:56,014 --> 00:00:58,933
Hi, Julia, it's Roald Amundsen.

21
00:00:59,059 --> 00:01:00,143
That's correct.

22
00:01:00,226 --> 00:01:01,478
The Roald Amundsen,

23
00:01:01,561 --> 00:01:04,647
who led the first successful expedition
to the South Pole.

24
00:01:04,731 --> 00:01:06,149
Obviously, buddy.

25
00:01:06,357 --> 00:01:08,943
[chuckles] That's...

26
00:01:09,069 --> 00:01:13,156
Sorry, it's not Roald Amundsen.
It's Sam Gardner, your former client?

27
00:01:13,239 --> 00:01:15,909
-No kidding.
-I'm practicing lying.

28
00:01:16,493 --> 00:01:19,704
Did you know colleges frown
on application essays about boobs?

29
00:01:19,788 --> 00:01:22,207
Even very nice ones. Okay.

30
00:01:23,083 --> 00:01:24,959
[Julia] I'll see you next week. Okay?

00:01:32,926 --> 00:01:35,762
Hi, it's Sam Gardner, AKA Sam.

33
00:01:35,845 --> 00:01:38,973
I had my first sleepover the other night
in the Dragon's Lair.

34
00:01:39,432 --> 00:01:41,392
That's what Zahid calls his bedroom.

35
00:01:42,352 --> 00:01:45,313
And later I was apprehended
by the police on the street.

36
00:01:45,814 --> 00:01:47,524
They thought I was using drugs.

37
00:01:48,066 --> 00:01:49,025
Okay.

[Sam] Knowing your strengths
is key to surviving.

[Sam] A minnow is tiny and good at hiding.

41
00:02:08,128 --> 00:02:13,216
But if a minnow thought it was huge
and tried to face off against, say...

42
00:02:13,299 --> 00:02:15,760
a beluga whale, that would be the end
of that minnow.

43
00:02:16,761 --> 00:02:18,346
-Hi, Paige.
-[people chattering]

44
00:02:18,513 --> 00:02:19,430
Hello, sir.

45
00:02:19,514 --> 00:02:23,059
Can I interest you in a baked good?
I'm raising money for the senior gift.

46
00:02:23,143 --> 00:02:26,354
I'm in purgatory right now
on the waitlist for Bowdoin, so...

47
00:02:26,521 --> 00:02:29,566
as I always say, "Don't cry, just fly."

48
00:02:30,150 --> 00:02:32,360
-Okay.
-You want carrot cake?

49
00:02:32,443 --> 00:02:34,737
They're made from baby carrots,
you can tell the difference.

50
00:02:34,821 --> 00:02:37,866
My mom and I stayed up almost all night
making them. They're not a hit.

51
00:02:37,949 --> 00:02:39,450
What's the senior gift?

52
00:02:39,742 --> 00:02:43,329
He asks, inadvertently admitting
to not reading any of my emails.

53
00:02:44,080 --> 00:02:46,040
It's all good. It's a hydroponic garden.

54
00:02:46,124 --> 00:02:48,543
I started gardening when I was four,
my therapist suggested it.

55
00:02:48,626 --> 00:02:50,503
-Okay.
-And I found a reformed drug man

56
00:02:50,587 --> 00:02:53,256
selling his on Craigslist
for only $4,000, so...

57
00:02:53,339 --> 00:02:55,967
Paige, I came here to tell you that,

58
00:02:56,050 --> 00:02:59,179
after having successfully spent a night
in the police station,

59
00:02:59,345 --> 00:03:02,348
I feel confident that I can come
with you to the senior lock-in,

60
00:03:02,432 --> 00:03:05,310
-and observe you in case you sleepwalk.
-Really?

61
00:03:05,393 --> 00:03:07,854
Yes. At least until 12:07.

62
00:03:07,937 --> 00:03:09,814
I may be able to push it to 12:08.

63
00:03:09,898 --> 00:03:12,192
Sam, that's amazing. Thank you.

64
00:03:12,775 --> 00:03:17,071
I feel like we're able to successfully
move our relationship to a platonic place.

65
00:03:17,947 --> 00:03:19,365
Did you say the police station?

66
00:03:19,449 --> 00:03:21,284
Yes, how much are the sugar cookies?

67
00:03:22,368 --> 00:03:24,662
For you? Fifty cents, friend.

68
00:03:26,456 --> 00:03:28,208
Well, that's only...

69
00:03:28,708 --> 00:03:33,213
7,999 more sales
and you'll have your water garden.

70
00:03:36,257 --> 00:03:37,217
Yep.

71
00:03:42,847 --> 00:03:43,723
Hey.

72
00:03:44,015 --> 00:03:47,852
So I've been thinking about the stuff
with Sam and the police...

73
00:03:47,936 --> 00:03:53,233
Yeah, me too. It's all I can think about.
The kid must have been terrified.

74
00:03:53,316 --> 00:03:54,525
Yeah, I know.

75
00:03:54,609 --> 00:03:59,405
So, I drafted a really strongly
worded email to the chief of police,

76
00:03:59,489 --> 00:04:03,117
and every other important person
that I could think of, including Oprah.

77
00:04:03,201 --> 00:04:06,746
-Wait, you really included Oprah?
-Of course, she can do anything.

78
00:04:07,956 --> 00:04:11,292
-But, then, I had another thought.
-Okay.

79
00:04:12,001 --> 00:04:13,503
What if you handled it?

80
00:04:14,587 --> 00:04:17,382
-Yeah?
-Well, I mean you're a first responder.

81
00:04:17,465 --> 00:04:19,676
You get these guys and you get Sam.

82
00:04:20,843 --> 00:04:24,347
Wait. So you're asking me
to help out with Sam stuff?

83
00:04:24,430 --> 00:04:28,017
Yep. I'm asking you
to help out with Sam stuff.

84
00:04:28,101 --> 00:04:30,144
You'll do it better than I can.

85
00:04:30,228 --> 00:04:32,313
-Wow.
-I'm just, I'm...

86
00:04:32,522 --> 00:04:34,482
I'm trying not to make the same mistakes,

87
00:04:34,565 --> 00:04:37,902
and think I have to do everything
by myself. I'm trying.

88
00:04:37,986 --> 00:04:39,320
I think it's...

89
00:04:40,947 --> 00:04:42,282
I think it's a good idea.

90
00:04:42,365 --> 00:04:43,700
-Yeah?
-Yeah.

91
00:04:47,662 --> 00:04:48,496
Good.

92
00:04:54,752 --> 00:04:56,879
-I'll see you later.
-See you later.

93
00:05:22,155 --> 00:05:24,657
-Did you write me a love note?
-Oh, hey, Izz.

94
00:05:24,741 --> 00:05:25,825
What is that?

95
00:05:26,617 --> 00:05:27,785
You know, maybe later.

96
00:05:27,869 --> 00:05:28,953
-Let me see it.
-No.

97
00:05:29,037 --> 00:05:30,872
-It's not anything.
-Give it.

00:05:30,955 --> 00:05:34,083
-It's nothing, really.
-I want to read nothing. I love nothing.

Please...

102
00:05:39,047 --> 00:05:41,591
I was going to tell you in person,
but I chickened out.

103
00:05:41,841 --> 00:05:44,552
So I wrote it. Obviously.

104
00:05:47,722 --> 00:05:50,641
-You and Nate kissed?
-No, he kissed me.

-That asshole.
-I know.

106
00:05:54,979 --> 00:05:56,397
I can't believe he did that.

107
00:05:57,857 --> 00:05:59,108
I'm going to kill him.

108
00:06:01,694 --> 00:06:03,321
Do you want to go talk about it?

109
00:06:05,740 --> 00:06:06,616
Nope.

110
00:06:08,493 --> 00:06:10,286
I just need time to think.

Sorry, I'm not good at this.

112
00:06:19,796 --> 00:06:20,630

Let's talk about what we're good at.

114
00:06:27,261 --> 00:06:30,390
Our homework this week was
to make a list of all our strengths.

115
00:06:30,473 --> 00:06:31,724
Who wants to read their list?

116
00:06:32,809 --> 00:06:34,727
-Sam, go for it.
-Yes.

117
00:06:36,521 --> 00:06:40,358
Strengths: I'm great at folding t-shirts,
but not sweaters.

118
00:06:41,109 --> 00:06:43,236
I never, ever forget to feed Edison.

119
00:06:43,903 --> 00:06:45,947
I know pretty much
everything there is to know

120
00:06:46,030 --> 00:06:48,408
about every species of Antarctic penguin.

121
00:06:48,741 --> 00:06:50,493

[rap music playing]

124
00:06:53,996 --> 00:06:54,831
There he goes.

125
00:06:54,914 --> 00:06:56,707
Oh, yeah. Work it.

126
00:06:59,377 --> 00:07:00,294
Work!

127
00:07:01,337 --> 00:07:02,338
You were right.

128
00:07:03,923 --> 00:07:07,135
I won the 8th grade science fair
in 7th grade.

129
00:07:07,218 --> 00:07:10,138
I won the 7th grade reading challenge
in 6th grade.

130
00:07:10,221 --> 00:07:12,265
And I never miss an appointment.

131
00:07:12,348 --> 00:07:15,268
And your teachers say
that you're excellent in biology.

132
00:07:15,351 --> 00:07:18,813
-True.
-I'm excellent in biology too.

133
00:07:18,896 --> 00:07:21,983
Which is a good thing.
I want to be a dentist.

134
00:07:22,066 --> 00:07:24,485
-We know.
-Okay, Amber.

135
00:07:24,569 --> 00:07:25,778
Thank you. Okay, guys.

136
00:07:25,862 --> 00:07:29,740
We've talked a lot about asking for help
and knowing when you need extra support,

137
00:07:29,824 --> 00:07:33,327
but it's also really important
to know what you're good at.

138
00:07:33,411 --> 00:07:36,414
That will help you make decisions
in terms of what kind of job to get,

139
00:07:36,497 --> 00:07:38,875
what to major in, where to go to school...

140
00:07:38,958 --> 00:07:40,084
who to date.

141
00:07:40,334 --> 00:07:43,463
Like, I'm smart and my boyfriend's not,

142
00:07:44,005 --> 00:07:45,715
so we balance each other out.

143
00:07:45,798 --> 00:07:48,426
I've been there. Okay, who else
wants to read their list?

144
00:07:49,010 --> 00:07:51,721
Me! Finally!

145
00:07:52,847 --> 00:07:54,849
[chattering]

146
00:07:55,766 --> 00:07:56,642
I'll see you later.

147
00:07:56,726 --> 00:07:58,811
Hey, Sam, can you hang back one sec?

148
00:07:58,936 --> 00:08:02,773
If you're wondering who took the cookies,
I saw Noelle dump, like, ten in her bag.

00:08:02,857 --> 00:08:03,774
Narc.

150
00:08:03,858 --> 00:08:06,444
No, actually, I wanted to talk to you
about colleges.

151
00:08:06,527 --> 00:08:08,362
I told you, I want to go.

152
00:08:08,446 --> 00:08:09,280
And I'm so glad,

153
00:08:09,363 --> 00:08:12,074
but the application deadlines
have mostly passed.

154
00:08:12,200 --> 00:08:15,119
So I think I can convince a couple
of them to make an exception,

155
00:08:15,203 --> 00:08:16,787
but I need some guidance from you.

156
00:08:17,163 --> 00:08:19,874
[laughs] You need guidance from me?

157
00:08:19,957 --> 00:08:21,709
You're a guidance counselor.

158
00:08:21,792 --> 00:08:23,753
That is ironic. I see that.

159
00:08:23,878 --> 00:08:27,215
Look, I just need you to do some research,
come up with about five places,

160
00:08:27,298 --> 00:08:30,384
and meet me in my office, maybe day
after tomorrow, and we'll go over them?

161
00:08:31,135 --> 00:08:32,261
[sighs]

162
00:08:32,929 --> 00:08:34,180
And nice dance moves.

163
00:08:35,139 --> 00:08:36,224
I liked those.

164
00:08:44,440 --> 00:08:46,150
WANTED

165
00:08:46,234 --> 00:08:47,610
STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

166
00:08:47,693 --> 00:08:48,569
Dougie Doug.

167
00:08:49,153 --> 00:08:51,739
Hey, Steve. How are you?

168
00:08:51,989 --> 00:08:53,824
You get taller? You look taller.

169
00:08:53,908 --> 00:08:56,202
You come down here just to bust my balls?

170
00:08:56,285 --> 00:08:58,371
When you coming back
to the basketball team?

171
00:08:58,454 --> 00:09:01,207
We could use a new center
ever since Gomez got the gout.

172
00:09:01,290 --> 00:09:02,750
-He got the gout?
-Yeah.

173
00:09:02,833 --> 00:09:04,043
That sucks.

174
00:09:04,335 --> 00:09:05,461
No, I...

175
00:09:05,545 --> 00:09:06,629
[officers chattering]

176
00:09:06,754 --> 00:09:11,259
[exhales] Last weekend
you picked up a kid, a teenager...

177
00:09:11,425 --> 00:09:14,637
[stammers] You thought he was on drugs,
turned out he was autistic?

178
00:09:14,720 --> 00:09:16,264
Yeah, that was weird, man.

179
00:09:16,347 --> 00:09:17,640
He was super messed up.

180
00:09:18,808 --> 00:09:21,394
Yeah, but... that was my kid.

181
00:09:22,103 --> 00:09:23,938
Oh. Shit.

182
00:09:24,480 --> 00:09:25,648
Gardner, of course.

183
00:09:25,731 --> 00:09:27,108
Yeah, his...

184
00:09:27,984 --> 00:09:31,153
His name is Sam. He's 18.

185
00:09:31,779 --> 00:09:33,948
He was diagnosed when he was four.

186
00:09:34,031 --> 00:09:36,409
He's a great kid, he gets good grades.

187
00:09:36,492 --> 00:09:38,911
He works really hard.
He's funny as hell and...

188
00:09:38,995 --> 00:09:41,414
-smarter than I'll ever be.
-Okay.

189
00:09:41,539 --> 00:09:42,957
And he's autistic.

190
00:09:43,165 --> 00:09:46,961
Which means he gets very uncomfortable
in unfamiliar situations.

191
00:09:47,044 --> 00:09:49,714
He was doing a twitchy thing
with his hand.

192
00:09:49,797 --> 00:09:53,050
Yeah, he does that, it's soothing.

193
00:09:53,134 --> 00:09:56,637
-Mumbling to himself?
-Probably reciting penguins.

194
00:09:56,721 --> 00:09:58,180
That's also soothing.

195
00:09:58,639 --> 00:10:01,934
There's other ways
to deal with this besides confronting him

196
00:10:02,018 --> 00:10:04,770
-the way that you did.
-Okay. Look, I hear you.

197
00:10:04,854 --> 00:10:08,024
Doug, I really do, but, you know,
put yourself in my shoes.

198
00:10:08,149 --> 00:10:12,028
He was wigging out. He wouldn't answer me
when I gave him a direct question...

199
00:10:12,111 --> 00:10:14,280
I know, but he had
the crap scared out of him.

200
00:10:14,363 --> 00:10:18,492
But we have to make split-second
decisions, Doug. So no one gets hurt.

201
00:10:18,909 --> 00:10:21,787
It's not a perfect system,
but most of the time we get it right.

202
00:10:22,747 --> 00:10:24,123
Except, you didn't get it right.

203
00:10:25,499 --> 00:10:28,169
If you had you would have known
that he wasn't on drugs,

204
00:10:28,252 --> 00:10:30,338
you would have found out
who his parents are,

205
00:10:30,421 --> 00:10:32,298
and you would have called. So...

206
00:10:33,633 --> 00:10:35,009
you didn't get it right.

207
00:10:35,926 --> 00:10:38,304
Alright. Here's what I'm going to do.

208
00:10:40,306 --> 00:10:41,724
Put your number right here.

209
00:10:43,476 --> 00:10:45,478
-[phone ringing]
-[officers chattering]

210
00:10:47,938 --> 00:10:52,276
Okay? I'm going to put it up here,
so everybody can see it.

211
00:10:55,571 --> 00:10:59,950
So next time we'll know, alright?
Next time, we'll remember who he is,

212
00:11:00,034 --> 00:11:01,911
and we'll give you a call. Okay?

213
00:11:01,994 --> 00:11:04,413
-I appreciate it, Steve.
-No problem.

214
00:11:04,830 --> 00:11:06,082
Good to see you.

215
00:11:11,128 --> 00:11:12,254
[Sam] This sucks.

216
00:11:12,672 --> 00:11:14,632
I have no idea
where I want to go to college

217
00:11:14,715 --> 00:11:16,842
and Ms. Whitaker's making me
decide right away.

218
00:11:16,926 --> 00:11:20,137
But how? There are so many colleges.
How does anyone decide?

219
00:11:20,221 --> 00:11:23,265
Easy. Pick the school
with the best chick to dude ratio.

220
00:11:23,891 --> 00:11:24,975
Doy.

221
00:11:25,059 --> 00:11:26,686
I made a list of my strengths.

222
00:11:26,769 --> 00:11:29,772
That was supposed to help me decide,
but it's worthless.

223
00:11:29,855 --> 00:11:32,483
"Dance moves, good at feeding turtle."

224
00:11:33,109 --> 00:11:36,487
[clicks tongue] Oh, my sweet summer Sam.
You really think these are your strengths?

225
00:11:37,571 --> 00:11:39,615
-You're being too modest.
-I am?

226
00:11:40,074 --> 00:11:44,120
For sure, dinosaur! For one,
you're super focused. Especially at work.

227
00:11:44,203 --> 00:11:47,707
Remember when you saw that punk stealing
an Xbox in the reflection of my glasses?

228
00:11:47,790 --> 00:11:49,667
Yes, and then you tackled him.

229
00:11:50,167 --> 00:11:51,961
Brains, brawns.

230
00:11:52,044 --> 00:11:55,047
Two: you're dependable as heck. Catch.

231
00:11:55,756 --> 00:11:57,258
See? I knew you'd catch that.

232
00:11:57,341 --> 00:12:00,970
Three: even though you're so skinny,
you're an excellent source of body heat.

233
00:12:01,053 --> 00:12:03,347
I leave my space heater at home
when we're working together.

234
00:12:03,431 --> 00:12:05,141
-Thank you.
-You're very welcome.

235
00:12:05,224 --> 00:12:07,601
Look, I know you're scared
about where to go to college,

236
00:12:07,685 --> 00:12:09,603
but cuddle up and listen to Papa.

237
00:12:10,312 --> 00:12:13,983
Life... always... works... out.

238
00:12:14,191 --> 00:12:15,025
Usually.

239
00:12:16,652 --> 00:12:18,362
I think someone's stealing
something again.

240
00:12:18,446 --> 00:12:19,697
Son of a bitch.

241
00:12:19,780 --> 00:12:21,323
Freeze, asshole.

242
00:12:30,875 --> 00:12:31,834
What?

243
00:12:34,003 --> 00:12:35,171
Uh-oh.

244
00:12:36,881 --> 00:12:38,549
Oh, sugar beans.

245
00:12:41,135 --> 00:12:44,930
Aren't I a good boyfriend for not saying
"I told you so" about that Nate guy?

246
00:12:45,014 --> 00:12:45,973
[faint pop music]

247
00:12:46,056 --> 00:12:50,895
'Cause most boyfriends would say,
"I told you so about that Nate guy."

248
00:12:50,978 --> 00:12:53,981
Yeah, you're being really cool
about that Nate guy.

249
00:12:54,565 --> 00:12:55,399
Thanks.

250
00:12:55,483 --> 00:12:58,027
You know I didn't do anything
to make him kiss me, right?

251
00:12:58,736 --> 00:13:00,613
-Yeah, I believe you.
-Alright.

252
00:13:00,696 --> 00:13:04,867
It's just that we were joking
about it happening,

253
00:13:04,950 --> 00:13:06,911
-and then it actually did happen.
-Yeah.

254
00:13:06,994 --> 00:13:08,454
So, you know...

255
00:13:08,537 --> 00:13:11,707
any other guy would be, like,
a little bit insecure.

256
00:13:11,791 --> 00:13:12,833
But not you.

257
00:13:13,793 --> 00:13:15,169
-Oh, no.
-No.

258
00:13:15,252 --> 00:13:18,881
Good. 'Cause you know
I don't care about Nate at all.

259
00:13:19,590 --> 00:13:21,967
And I think that Izzie
and I can get through this.

260
00:13:22,301 --> 00:13:26,222
I just... I know I haven't known her
for that long, but I, like, love her.

261
00:13:26,305 --> 00:13:28,390
Like, we just got so close so fast.

262
00:13:28,474 --> 00:13:29,975
Yeah, girls are weird.

263
00:13:30,059 --> 00:13:32,853
Yeah, we bond quickly or not at all.

264
00:13:33,103 --> 00:13:36,148
And I just feel like
we're supposed to be friends.

265
00:13:36,398 --> 00:13:37,942
Like, we're so alike.

266
00:13:38,526 --> 00:13:40,361
I think we'll be okay.

267
00:13:41,028 --> 00:13:42,404
I hope we'll be okay.

268
00:13:45,658 --> 00:13:47,409
-You'll be okay.
-Stop.

269
00:13:48,244 --> 00:13:51,872
I promised Beth that we'd meet her
at Don's Pizza.

270
00:13:52,623 --> 00:13:56,168
Because, as she puts it, she has
a Casey-shaped hole in her heart,

271
00:13:56,252 --> 00:13:59,672
which is a very... sexy-shaped hole.

272
00:13:59,755 --> 00:14:01,590
That just sounds so gross.

273
00:14:01,674 --> 00:14:04,593
That did sound grosser than I expected.

274
00:14:04,677 --> 00:14:06,262
[music playing]

275
00:14:06,387 --> 00:14:08,472
[man] ...helps with putting it on flat...

276
00:14:09,473 --> 00:14:11,350
-What are you doing?
-Oh, nothing.

277
00:14:11,433 --> 00:14:14,270
I'm doing a DIY. I'm fixing the hole.

278
00:14:15,312 --> 00:14:17,189
-With a hammer?
-What?

279
00:14:17,314 --> 00:14:20,651
-No, not anymore.
-Let's go to Don's. Come on.

280
00:14:20,734 --> 00:14:23,529
-You sure you're okay with this?
-Don's! Don's! Don's!

281
00:14:23,612 --> 00:14:25,489
Yes, I'm absolutely fine.

282
00:14:25,573 --> 00:14:28,242
And if all else fails,
there's always Google.

283
00:14:30,202 --> 00:14:34,582
That's alright. I'll get that later.
Don't worry about it. Shoo! Go, go.

284
00:14:41,255 --> 00:14:42,506
I hate you.

285
00:14:43,090 --> 00:14:45,092
[students chattering]

286
00:14:45,885 --> 00:14:48,178
Sam! I'm a polar bear!

287
00:14:48,262 --> 00:14:50,055
What? No, you're not!

288
00:14:50,139 --> 00:14:53,100
No, it's the Bowdoin mascot.
I got into Bowdoin!

289
00:14:53,183 --> 00:14:56,395
-Oh, that's good.
-Oh, it's amazing!

290
00:14:56,478 --> 00:14:58,105
And it came at the perfect time.

291
00:14:58,188 --> 00:15:01,275
I was really bummed
that we only raised $45 at the bake sale.

292
00:15:01,609 --> 00:15:04,570
It's the first time my snickerdoodles
have ever let me down.

293
00:15:04,653 --> 00:15:07,364
-I'm sorry.
-No, it's all good in the 'hood.

294
00:15:07,448 --> 00:15:11,160
No shade on my parade
because I'm going to Bowdoin!

295
00:15:11,911 --> 00:15:14,079
I still have to decide
what college I want to go to

296
00:15:14,163 --> 00:15:15,998
before my meeting with Ms. Whitaker.

297
00:15:16,081 --> 00:15:17,750
I have no idea how to choose.

298
00:15:17,833 --> 00:15:21,462
Well, I have an idea.
Why don't you just go to Bowdoin?

299
00:15:21,545 --> 00:15:23,756
You get really good grades,
I'm sure you could get in.

300
00:15:23,839 --> 00:15:26,425
And we could be there for each other,
and support each other,

301
00:15:26,508 --> 00:15:28,469
in a totally platonic way, of course.

302
00:15:28,552 --> 00:15:29,887
-Really?
-Yeah.

303
00:15:29,970 --> 00:15:33,557
And if it's too late for the fall,
you could start midyear. A lot of kids do.

304
00:15:34,058 --> 00:15:35,392
Just think about it, okay?

305
00:15:35,476 --> 00:15:36,352
Okay.

306
00:15:37,353 --> 00:15:41,148
Did you know that a group of polar bears
is sometimes called a sleuth?

307
00:15:41,231 --> 00:15:42,858
No, I didn't know that.

308
00:15:42,942 --> 00:15:46,236
But it looks like I'll have a sleuth
of new friends next year.

309
00:15:46,946 --> 00:15:48,989
-Am I using that right?
-No.

310
00:15:55,120 --> 00:15:57,414
Hey. I've been looking for you.

311
00:15:58,082 --> 00:16:00,793
I flicked a freshman in the ear,
I thought it was you.

312
00:16:00,876 --> 00:16:02,544
I had to pretend it was hazing.

313
00:16:05,130 --> 00:16:07,132
-Is everything okay?
-Yep.

314
00:16:07,716 --> 00:16:08,842
[zipping schoolbag]

315
00:16:08,968 --> 00:16:10,886
-Did you break up with Nate?
-No.

316
00:16:11,971 --> 00:16:12,805

00:06:02,695 --> 00:06:03,696
Fine.

123
00:06:04,655 --> 00:06:05,615
Okay.

124
00:06:06,532 --> 00:06:09,327
I am going to leave the night light,
just in case.

125
00:06:09,410 --> 00:06:12,497
It's the only thing I can find, hoss.
Smurfette.

127
00:06:25,009 --> 00:06:28,638
[Sam] Baby penguins are most vulnerable
their first few weeks of life.

128
00:06:31,224 --> 00:06:32,892
-Hey.
-Hi.

129
00:06:32,975 --> 00:06:35,186
[Sam] Their juvenile feathers
haven't come in yet,

130
00:06:35,269 --> 00:06:37,313
so they're just little balls of fluff.

131
00:06:42,735 --> 00:06:44,487
He's such a dick!

132
00:06:44,987 --> 00:06:47,365
He was yelling and throwing things...

133
00:06:47,907 --> 00:06:49,283
and I was like, "Dude, leave!"

134
00:06:50,743 --> 00:06:53,663
But whatever.
I'm not scared of that asshole.

135
00:06:54,580 --> 00:06:56,999
-What about the kids?
-I took them to my grandma's.

136
00:06:57,083 --> 00:07:00,711
-But she doesn't have a lot of room, so...
-Oh, you're staying here.

137
00:07:00,795 --> 00:07:02,463
Okay. Thank you.

138
00:07:03,089 --> 00:07:05,091
[door unlocking]

139
00:07:05,341 --> 00:07:07,051
Sam, this is Izzie.

140
00:07:07,135 --> 00:07:09,595
-Izzie, this is Sam.
-No time. I'm busy.

141
00:07:11,806 --> 00:07:13,433
Seems like he likes you.

142
00:07:16,602 --> 00:07:17,645
What are you doing?

143
00:07:18,229 --> 00:07:20,773
-I'm packing my things.
-Why? You don't go places.

144
00:07:20,857 --> 00:07:23,609
I'm going to sleep over at Zahid's
to learn how to do it,

145
00:07:23,693 --> 00:07:27,697
for when I go to the senior lock-in,
and college, and eventually Bonetown.

146
00:07:28,281 --> 00:07:31,159
You know, that actually sounds like
a not-terrible idea.

147
00:07:31,242 --> 00:07:32,368
I thought so too.

148
00:07:32,743 --> 00:07:34,370
I think I have everything.

149
00:07:34,871 --> 00:07:37,665
-Edison. Should I bring Edison?
-No, leave the turtle.

150
00:07:37,790 --> 00:07:38,791
[Izzie and Sam] Tortoise.

151
00:07:38,875 --> 00:07:39,792
Nerds.

152
00:07:41,043 --> 00:07:41,878
But...

153
00:07:43,087 --> 00:07:44,297
I need Edison.

154
00:07:44,964 --> 00:07:48,134
What if I can't sleep without the sounds
of his little feet on the glass,

155
00:07:48,217 --> 00:07:51,262
or the smell of his food
wafting through the tank vent?

156
00:07:51,512 --> 00:07:53,723
Maybe this is a bad idea.
Maybe I shouldn't go.

157
00:07:54,307 --> 00:07:56,350
-Sam--
-Why don't you leave Edison here,

158
00:07:56,434 --> 00:07:59,187
where he's comfortable?
But bring his container of food,

159
00:07:59,270 --> 00:08:02,190
so that way if you miss him
or you feel nervous you can just smell it.

160
00:08:03,357 --> 00:08:07,528
Olfactory senses are the greatest memory
stimulant of all the senses.

161
00:08:08,279 --> 00:08:09,739
That's not a bad idea.

162
00:08:10,531 --> 00:08:12,408
-Your name is Izzie?
-Yeah.

163
00:08:12,783 --> 00:08:13,743
Hm.

164
00:08:15,953 --> 00:08:17,580
Well, that's everything.

165
00:08:18,331 --> 00:08:21,792
-You'll be okay without me?
-Yes, I'm sure I'll manage.

166
00:08:26,339 --> 00:08:27,173
Bye.

167
00:08:29,509 --> 00:08:32,803
-I'm glad you like Sam.
-What's not to like? He's cool.

168
00:08:33,721 --> 00:08:34,847
Is this your room?

169
00:08:39,227 --> 00:08:41,729
I wonder if they've done
anything new to the house?

170
00:08:42,355 --> 00:08:44,815
Well, Theo told me
they built out the master bath.

171
00:08:46,025 --> 00:08:47,109
Nice.

172
00:08:48,611 --> 00:08:50,571
Do me a favor and just...

173
00:08:51,239 --> 00:08:54,116
please don't bring up
whatever it was that happened.

174
00:08:54,200 --> 00:08:55,910
Whatever it was that happened?

175
00:08:56,536 --> 00:08:58,037
You know what happened.

176
00:08:58,829 --> 00:09:01,457
They didn't invite us to a party
or something, right?

177
00:09:01,541 --> 00:09:02,583
No.

178
00:09:03,459 --> 00:09:05,378
I can't believe you don't remember.

179
00:09:05,461 --> 00:09:09,257
They took my idea
of a family camping trip,

180
00:09:09,340 --> 00:09:11,092
and then they excluded us.

181
00:09:11,175 --> 00:09:12,927
We went a few times, right?

182
00:09:13,010 --> 00:09:15,846
Yeah. And then when Sam got too difficult,

183
00:09:15,930 --> 00:09:18,933
they stopped inviting us
and started inviting other families.

184
00:09:19,016 --> 00:09:21,894
But he hated it. We probably
would have stopped going anyway.

185
00:09:21,978 --> 00:09:25,231
Yeah, that's not the point.
It should have been our decision.

186
00:09:27,525 --> 00:09:28,609
Just seems like a...

187
00:09:30,027 --> 00:09:31,862
pretty lame reason to end a friendship.

188
00:09:32,738 --> 00:09:35,074
Well, you were pretty on board
at the time.

189
00:09:35,157 --> 00:09:36,325
No, I wasn't.

190
00:09:37,368 --> 00:09:39,787
I just let you make all the decisions.

191
00:09:41,080 --> 00:09:44,542
[Sam] Penguin chicks typically require
attentive parents for survival,

192
00:09:44,625 --> 00:09:46,043
but in some species,

193
00:09:46,127 --> 00:09:48,879
partially grown chicks will gather
in groups called crèches...

194
00:09:48,963 --> 00:09:51,173
Samantha, this is my castle.

195
00:09:51,674 --> 00:09:54,760
[Sam] ...which provide protection
from predators and the elements.

196
00:09:54,844 --> 00:09:57,888
-It's nice to have a crèche.
-Sam, meet the roommates.

197
00:09:57,972 --> 00:09:59,140
We are his parents.

198
00:09:59,223 --> 00:10:01,851
But, we live together,
so technically we're...

199
00:10:01,934 --> 00:10:04,145
...being taken advantage of
by our own son.

200
00:10:04,228 --> 00:10:05,396
Your words cut deep, woman.

201
00:10:05,479 --> 00:10:08,482
-Call me Umi or start paying rent.
-I'll get the food, Umi.

202
00:10:09,358 --> 00:10:11,360
Sam, we are so excited you are here.

203
00:10:11,444 --> 00:10:13,446
-Yes.
-We heard so much about you.

204
00:10:13,529 --> 00:10:15,364
You have really helped our boy.

205
00:10:15,448 --> 00:10:19,493
Since he met you, he is sweeter,
more conscientious.

206
00:10:19,577 --> 00:10:21,954
Well, Zahid's the one that helps me.

207
00:10:22,038 --> 00:10:24,040
Your son is the wisest person I know.

208
00:10:24,123 --> 00:10:26,417
-Wise?
-A wise-ass, maybe.

209
00:10:26,500 --> 00:10:30,713
I mean, he certainly has potential,
but he has never been really focused.

210
00:10:30,796 --> 00:10:33,424
Well, he's very focused
when it comes to girls.

211
00:10:33,507 --> 00:10:36,677
It doesn't matter what he's doing,
if a hot girl walks in the store

212
00:10:36,761 --> 00:10:39,972
-he'll completely abandon his work--
-Okay, let's eat. Let's eat.

213
00:10:40,056 --> 00:10:41,432
I hope you don't mind, Sam,

214
00:10:41,515 --> 00:10:44,560
but I called your mom
to see what your favorite meal is.

215
00:10:45,519 --> 00:10:47,605
-Oh, God, that's hot.
-Butter noodles?

216
00:10:47,688 --> 00:10:49,565
We're all excited you're sleeping over.

217
00:10:49,649 --> 00:10:52,985
It's so impressive
that you're practicing for college.

218
00:10:53,277 --> 00:10:56,322
-I wish Zahid had gone to college.
-Okay, enough about that.

219
00:10:56,781 --> 00:10:59,575
-How are the butter noodles?
-The second best I've ever had.

220
00:10:59,659 --> 00:11:00,868
Oh, thank you.

221
00:11:03,579 --> 00:11:05,331
-[chuckles] Gardners.
-Hey.

222
00:11:05,414 --> 00:11:06,916
Come in, please.

223
00:11:06,999 --> 00:11:09,001
-So good to--
-Oh, you too.

224
00:11:09,085 --> 00:11:10,169
-Hi.
-Hi.

225
00:11:12,713 --> 00:11:17,259
Can I get anyone a beverage?
White wine... dark beer.

226
00:11:17,343 --> 00:11:19,178
-Yep.
-I remember.

227
00:11:20,304 --> 00:11:22,765
-Why don't-- Come in, sit down.
-Yes.

228
00:11:24,308 --> 00:11:25,893
Oh, new fireplace, huh?

229
00:11:25,976 --> 00:11:27,520
Just new stones.

230
00:11:27,603 --> 00:11:28,646
Pretty.

231
00:11:29,230 --> 00:11:30,898
Okay.

232
00:11:35,569 --> 00:11:41,742
-First... we want to apologize.
-We are so... sorry and feel so...

233
00:11:41,826 --> 00:11:46,288
awful and embarrassed
about how Arlo acted.

234
00:11:47,206 --> 00:11:48,874
Here's a check for Sam.

235
00:11:49,834 --> 00:11:52,336
And we got him a new phone.

236
00:11:52,920 --> 00:11:53,754
Oh, wow.

237
00:11:54,338 --> 00:11:56,215
This is not necessary.

238
00:11:56,382 --> 00:11:59,844
Sam, he just replaced the screen
at Techtropolis for free.

239
00:11:59,927 --> 00:12:03,264
-Keep it, really.
-We just... we feel awful.

240
00:12:03,931 --> 00:12:07,768
You know how...
Arlo's always had behavioral issues,

241
00:12:07,852 --> 00:12:09,645
ever since he was little.

242
00:12:10,146 --> 00:12:15,443
We... we took him to therapy
a few years back, but it didn't help.

243
00:12:15,526 --> 00:12:17,820
We spoiled him, that's what it is.

247
00:12:27,246 --> 00:12:31,208

-Okay, stop.

253

I can't do it. No, keep reading.

254
00:12:48,058 --> 00:12:50,311
-No, I'm stopping. It's too scary.
-[both laughing]

00:12:52,354 --> 00:12:54,940
Thank you for building
this ridiculous fort,

and reading me scary books

257
00:12:56,358 --> 00:12:58,152
just to keep my mind off
of what's going on.

258
00:12:58,235 --> 00:12:59,320
Yeah.

259
00:12:59,820 --> 00:13:02,156
We can stay in here forever if you want.

260
00:13:02,239 --> 00:13:05,159
We can pee in the can,
do college classes online.

261

-We can...
-Oh, yeah?

00:13:06,243 --> 00:13:07,995
...you know, get old here and...

263
00:13:08,078 --> 00:13:09,455
get a couple cats.

-Yeah.

you're, like, my new favorite person.

268
00:13:20,716 --> 00:13:21,592
Really?

269
00:13:22,593 --> 00:13:23,719
Yeah. [chuckles]

270
00:13:24,386 --> 00:13:27,473
Is that tragic since we just met
a little while ago?

271
00:13:28,432 --> 00:13:29,266
No.

272
00:13:30,684 --> 00:13:32,436
You're my new favorite person, too.

'cause she will kill you.

Welcome to the dragon's lair, homie.

277
00:13:44,114 --> 00:13:45,991
I did my best to soundproof the digs.

278
00:13:46,116 --> 00:13:49,495
For example, put a cover on that mattress,
so it doesn't make sound in the night.

279
00:13:49,578 --> 00:13:52,498
And I borrowed that fancy smell-maker
from my roommate--

00:13:52,581 --> 00:13:54,208
-Your mom?
-My roommate...

281
00:13:54,416 --> 00:13:57,336
to make the room smell nice.
I figured you'd like eucalyptus.

282
00:13:58,212 --> 00:13:59,547
Like koalas. Yes.

283
00:13:59,630 --> 00:14:02,132
Yeah. Last but not least, lighting.

00:14:04,593 --> 00:14:05,928
Feel the bromance.

285
00:14:06,011 --> 00:14:09,682

293
00:14:52,892 --> 00:14:54,894
[ticking]

294
00:15:14,580 --> 00:15:17,374
Wow, that's a lot of trophies.

295
00:15:17,458 --> 00:15:21,211
Yeah, it's silly to put them all up,
but I think Arlo's proud of them.

296
00:15:21,295 --> 00:15:23,672
-So...
-No, I'm sure he is.

297
00:15:26,300 --> 00:15:29,178
So does Sam play sports or...?

298
00:15:29,303 --> 00:15:32,598
No, he's much more into art and biology.

299
00:15:32,681 --> 00:15:33,891
Oh, a smartypants.

300
00:15:33,974 --> 00:15:35,851
Yeah, he is.

301
00:15:36,143 --> 00:15:38,729
In fact, tonight he's having
his first sleepover ever.

302
00:15:38,812 --> 00:15:40,439
I mean, it's a little...

303
00:15:40,648 --> 00:15:43,734
late, but you know,
we're just so proud of him.

304
00:15:46,111 --> 00:15:49,698
Hey, I see the camping trips
are still going strong.

305
00:15:52,826 --> 00:15:54,036
It was a shitty thing to do.

306
00:15:55,204 --> 00:15:56,038
What?

307
00:15:56,121 --> 00:15:58,958
We never should have stopped
inviting you on those trips.

308
00:15:59,041 --> 00:16:04,046
I felt bad about it, forever,
and I just didn't know how to...

309
00:16:05,130 --> 00:16:07,132
It just felt like too much time had...

310
00:16:07,424 --> 00:16:08,717
[sighs]

311
00:16:09,885 --> 00:16:11,428
Anyway, I'm sorry.

312
00:16:13,681 --> 00:16:14,723
It's okay.

313
00:16:15,057 --> 00:16:15,933
Yeah?

314
00:16:16,517 --> 00:16:17,351
Yeah.

315
00:16:20,187 --> 00:16:21,897
-They seem to be getting along.
-Good.

316
00:16:21,981 --> 00:16:24,233
This thing has gone on long enough.

317
00:16:24,316 --> 00:16:26,568
I mean, who cares
about a silly camping trip

318
00:16:26,652 --> 00:16:28,320
that happened over ten years ago?

319
00:16:28,404 --> 00:16:30,489
Exactly. And you know, to be honest,

320
00:16:30,572 --> 00:16:34,118
it makes sense Holly and the kids
didn't want to hang around Sam.

321
00:16:34,201 --> 00:16:36,328
I mean, he was a little off back then.

322
00:16:37,746 --> 00:16:38,580
What?

323
00:16:39,081 --> 00:16:42,376
You know, always yelling
and making a scene.

324
00:16:42,501 --> 00:16:44,003
He was hard to deal with.

325
00:16:45,087 --> 00:16:47,589
Never mind, it's all good.
How about another drink?

326
00:16:52,261 --> 00:16:54,680
[women yelling on TV show]

327
00:16:58,225 --> 00:16:59,226
[glass breaks]

328
00:17:00,811 --> 00:17:04,023
Did I leave that on? Sorry, Sammy.

329
00:17:04,481 --> 00:17:05,983
[ticking]

330
00:17:06,150 --> 00:17:07,234
Sam?

331
00:17:09,695 --> 00:17:11,697
[humming and tapping]

332
00:17:16,160 --> 00:17:17,161
-[police horn]
-Hey.

333
00:17:17,244 --> 00:17:21,081
[Sam] If a baby chick separates
from its crèche it could freeze to death,

334
00:17:21,165 --> 00:17:23,625
or be eaten by a variety
of different predators.

335
00:17:23,709 --> 00:17:24,668
[Police officer] Hey!

336
00:17:25,794 --> 00:17:27,379
What are you up to tonight?

337
00:17:27,463 --> 00:17:28,922
Chinstrap, Emperor, Gentoo...

338
00:17:29,173 --> 00:17:32,551
-Been drinking or doing drugs?
-Adelie, Chinstrap, Emperor, Gentoo.

339
00:17:32,634 --> 00:17:36,889
-Adelie, Chinstrap, Emperor, Gentoo...
-Hey. Hey, I'm talking to you.

340
00:17:36,972 --> 00:17:38,307
Adelie, Chinstrap, Emperor...

341
00:17:38,390 --> 00:17:39,850
What you been taking?
You tweaking?

342
00:17:39,933 --> 00:17:42,019
[Sam] Some are even kidnapped
by other adult penguins.

343
00:17:42,102 --> 00:17:43,270
Hey, stop!

344
00:17:44,188 --> 00:17:47,024
-Sam. Sam!
-Whoa, hey!

345
00:17:47,107 --> 00:17:49,526
-It's okay, he has autism.
-You need to step back.

346
00:17:49,610 --> 00:17:51,945
-You don't get it, it's--
-I said get on the ground.

347
00:17:52,029 --> 00:17:53,614
[officer shouting]
Get on the ground!

348
00:17:54,740 --> 00:17:56,492
[Sam] It's a scary world out there.

349
00:18:01,371 --> 00:18:03,457
-Yeah.
-[knocking at door]

350
00:18:04,833 --> 00:18:05,876
It's Pennywise.

351
00:18:05,959 --> 00:18:06,960
No. [chuckles]

352
00:18:07,586 --> 00:18:08,670
I forgot I texted Nate.

353
00:18:08,754 --> 00:18:10,881
-No.
-Yeah, I know, I'm sorry.

354
00:18:10,964 --> 00:18:12,716
He's going to ruin the girl time.

355
00:18:12,800 --> 00:18:13,967
Let's pretend we're not here.

356
00:18:16,011 --> 00:18:18,347
We're not home.

357
00:18:18,430 --> 00:18:19,890
Open the door, you dummies.

358
00:18:19,973 --> 00:18:21,225
[both chuckle]

359
00:18:21,350 --> 00:18:24,686
He's gonna make so much fun of us
for making this fort. Oh, my God.

360
00:18:24,937 --> 00:18:27,147
Well, boys ruin everything.

361
00:18:28,107 --> 00:18:29,358
Okay, what do we do?

362
00:18:29,900 --> 00:18:32,319
-Invite him in, I guess.
-We can watch a movie.

363
00:18:32,778 --> 00:18:34,571
-You'll fall asleep.
-No, I won't.

364
00:18:38,408 --> 00:18:39,451
Every time.

365
00:18:41,537 --> 00:18:44,331
So, how are things with the boyfriend?

366
00:18:44,915 --> 00:18:46,375
The boyfriend?

367
00:18:46,834 --> 00:18:48,377
You know his name.

368
00:18:48,961 --> 00:18:51,463
I'm sorry. How are things with Evan?

369
00:18:51,547 --> 00:18:53,799
Why are you saying it
like it's a fake name, weirdo?

370
00:18:53,882 --> 00:18:55,175
[Nate chuckles]

371
00:18:55,259 --> 00:18:58,762
I don't know, 'cause I'm suspicious of him
'cause I'm protective of you.

372
00:18:59,555 --> 00:19:02,224
That's nice. And unnecessary.

373
00:19:02,516 --> 00:19:05,060
-And sort of sexist.
-Thank you.

374
00:19:06,812 --> 00:19:10,232
But yeah, I don't know. Things are weird.

375
00:19:12,401 --> 00:19:14,945
Well, we're here,
if you need someone to talk to.

376
00:19:15,779 --> 00:19:17,447
Or, I'm here.

377
00:19:17,531 --> 00:19:20,075
Clearly, this one can't make it past 9:30.

378
00:19:20,159 --> 00:19:22,161
[Casey laughs]

379
00:19:22,327 --> 00:19:24,037
You guys are awesome.

380
00:19:25,205 --> 00:19:27,457
Thank you for being my first friend
at Clayton.

381
00:19:30,878 --> 00:19:32,462
What are you--

382
00:19:32,546 --> 00:19:35,340
-What are you doing?
-Come on, there's something between us.

383
00:19:35,424 --> 00:19:37,509
Friendship! You're my friend's boyfriend.

384
00:19:37,593 --> 00:19:40,429
I know, but you can't blame me
for being a little confused.

385
00:19:40,512 --> 00:19:44,558
Let me clear this up for you.
This is never going to happen.

386
00:19:45,350 --> 00:19:46,852
Now, leave.

387
00:19:48,061 --> 00:19:49,021
Go.

388
00:19:49,479 --> 00:19:51,773
Fine, make it weird.

389
00:20:01,575 --> 00:20:06,830
[Sam] ...Chinstrap, Emperor, Gentoo,
Adelie, Chinstrap, Emperor, Gentoo...

390
00:20:06,914 --> 00:20:08,040
You alright?

391
00:20:09,082 --> 00:20:11,627
Adelie, Chinstrap, Emperor, Gentoo...

392
00:20:11,877 --> 00:20:14,171
Hey, I have an idea.
Turn your chair around.

393
00:20:14,254 --> 00:20:15,505
-[phone ringing]
-[chattering]

394
00:20:15,631 --> 00:20:16,924
-What?
-Come on.

395
00:20:25,807 --> 00:20:26,975
[Zahid exhales]

396
00:20:28,060 --> 00:20:29,019
Feeling better?

397
00:20:32,064 --> 00:20:32,898
Look...

398
00:20:33,941 --> 00:20:37,486
you can't let one little setback
bring you down, man.

399
00:20:37,569 --> 00:20:39,988
Everybody has setbacks. Even me.

400
00:20:41,240 --> 00:20:43,825
I didn't always want to be in tech retail.

401
00:20:43,909 --> 00:20:47,204
-But you're so good at it.
-No doubt. I'm great.

402
00:20:47,829 --> 00:20:50,749
But... when I was a kid...

403
00:20:51,041 --> 00:20:56,088
my grandma got sick and we spent
a lot of time in the hospital.

404
00:20:56,171 --> 00:21:01,051
And frankly, the doctors were pricks,
but I thought the nurses were really cool.

405
00:21:01,134 --> 00:21:03,553
In my head,
they did all the important stuff.

406
00:21:04,429 --> 00:21:06,682
So I decided I wanted to be a nurse.

407
00:21:07,975 --> 00:21:08,892
A nurse?

408
00:21:10,435 --> 00:21:13,689
I'm good with people
and it seems like you learn cool stuff.

409
00:21:13,981 --> 00:21:16,024
It's, like, 99% chicks.

410
00:21:16,984 --> 00:21:18,235
But then...

411
00:21:22,531 --> 00:21:25,158
What? Are you going
to finish your sentence?

412
00:21:26,785 --> 00:21:31,832
Well, then I had Mr. Jeffries,
my high school biology teacher.

413
00:21:31,915 --> 00:21:35,544
Dude was like 88 years old, such a jerk,
and smoked like a chimney.

414
00:21:35,627 --> 00:21:38,755
-I mean, who smokes at work?
-You do, you smoke weed.

415
00:21:38,839 --> 00:21:42,634
That is very different, Samuel.
And shh! We're still at a police station.

416
00:21:43,260 --> 00:21:44,261
Sorry.

417
00:21:45,887 --> 00:21:50,767
Anyway, one day,
Mr. Jeffries got annoyed at me for...

418
00:21:51,143 --> 00:21:54,938
I don't remember what. I was probably
just being hilarious as usual.

419
00:21:55,480 --> 00:21:58,317
And he told me that I was a loser.

420
00:21:58,942 --> 00:22:01,695
And that I would end up a stoned nobody,

421
00:22:01,778 --> 00:22:04,489
working a dead-end job
for the rest of my life.

422
00:22:06,283 --> 00:22:07,909
Someone was mean to you?

423
00:22:09,202 --> 00:22:12,039
The words just... stuck in my brain,

424
00:22:12,122 --> 00:22:16,710
and every time I thought about applying
to nursing school, I'd just...

425
00:22:17,753 --> 00:22:19,129
imagine failing.

426
00:22:20,047 --> 00:22:22,549
Anyway, don't make the same mistake I did.

427
00:22:22,966 --> 00:22:26,261
I mean, life's going to be full
of a lot of little setbacks,

428
00:22:26,511 --> 00:22:28,180
but that doesn't mean you stop trying.

429
00:22:31,433 --> 00:22:34,895
You know, if Mr. Jeffries was 88,

430
00:22:34,978 --> 00:22:39,441
and smoked like a chimney,
statistically, he's probably dead.

431
00:22:39,941 --> 00:22:40,776
Does that help?

432
00:22:42,110 --> 00:22:44,571
-It really does.
-Good.

433
00:22:45,489 --> 00:22:46,698
It really does.

434
00:22:47,657 --> 00:22:49,201
Oh, my gosh.

435
00:22:49,284 --> 00:22:54,164
I think I borrowed this blouse, like,
15 years ago, and I never returned it.

436
00:22:54,247 --> 00:22:55,332
[both laughing]

437
00:22:55,415 --> 00:22:58,960
-Well, consider it a gift.
-Okay, thank you very much.

438
00:22:59,044 --> 00:23:02,631
Sure. You don't happen to have four
of our TV remotes, do you?

439
00:23:02,714 --> 00:23:03,799
[both laughing]

440
00:23:03,882 --> 00:23:07,969
Hey, try this Macallan, aged 30 years.
Figured you would appreciate that.

441
00:23:09,429 --> 00:23:11,348
[clears throat]

442
00:23:11,431 --> 00:23:15,268
You know... Sam has been through a lot.

443
00:23:15,352 --> 00:23:17,646
-We don't need to talk about all that.
-No, I...

444
00:23:18,605 --> 00:23:19,481
I think we do.

445
00:23:20,232 --> 00:23:23,443
You know, he has autism,
that's a real thing.

446
00:23:23,944 --> 00:23:29,116
I don't think it's something that he,
or we, deserve to be punished for.

447
00:23:29,199 --> 00:23:32,035
Dude, just try to get
to where we're coming from.

448
00:23:32,119 --> 00:23:36,373
Am I supposed to force my kids to hang out
with someone who yells and hits them?

449
00:23:36,540 --> 00:23:37,916
That would be punishing us.

450
00:23:37,999 --> 00:23:40,919
So, what are you saying?
Hanging out with Sam is like a punishment?

451
00:23:41,002 --> 00:23:42,712
I'm just trying to be honest, man.

452
00:23:43,046 --> 00:23:46,591
Maybe if you had exposed your children
to different types of kids,

453
00:23:46,675 --> 00:23:49,845
you wouldn't have raised Arlo
to be an insensitive jerk.

454
00:23:49,928 --> 00:23:52,848
-Whoa.
-Oh, I'm just trying to be honest, man.

455
00:23:52,931 --> 00:23:53,974
Theo, drop it.

456
00:23:54,433 --> 00:23:56,518
Me? I'm not the one
insulting people's kids.

457
00:23:56,601 --> 00:23:59,646
You're just saying mine isn't
neurotypical enough to hang out with.

458
00:23:59,729 --> 00:24:03,150
-Maybe we should--
-Yeah. No, let's go. Let's go.

459
00:24:05,193 --> 00:24:06,403
[whispers] I'm sorry.

460
00:24:08,530 --> 00:24:10,699
[Zahid]
That's the ninth nurse I asked out.

461
00:24:10,782 --> 00:24:14,619
-[Sam] Did she say yes?
-She did say... no.

462
00:24:15,036 --> 00:24:16,079
You two.

463
00:24:17,581 --> 00:24:19,624
I ran your IDs
and I'm going to let you go.

464
00:24:19,708 --> 00:24:22,544
Just don't go wandering around
at night looking like an addict.

465
00:24:22,627 --> 00:24:26,423
Dude, he has autism.
What went down, that is on you.

466
00:24:27,132 --> 00:24:29,509
You know, you charged an officer.

467
00:24:29,843 --> 00:24:31,386
So I wouldn't press my luck.

468
00:24:32,137 --> 00:24:33,847
Loud and clear. Let's go, Sam.

469
00:24:40,437 --> 00:24:41,563
Sam, look.

470
00:24:41,980 --> 00:24:43,356
It's 12:07 a.m.

471
00:24:45,275 --> 00:24:46,693
You stayed somewhere overnight.

472
00:24:46,776 --> 00:24:50,071
I mean, technically, you didn't sleep,
but it's a first step, right?

473
00:24:58,413 --> 00:25:00,415
That fireplace was pretty nice.

474
00:25:00,665 --> 00:25:03,793
-Listen, I'm sorry.
-Hey, no need to apologize.

475
00:25:03,877 --> 00:25:07,005
No, I should have let you go
over there on your own.

476
00:25:07,088 --> 00:25:10,967
I'm lying.
I thought the fireplace looked tacky.

477
00:25:16,640 --> 00:25:18,683
It must have been...

478
00:25:20,810 --> 00:25:22,646
hard for you back then, huh?

479
00:25:23,313 --> 00:25:24,856
Losing her as a friend?

480
00:25:25,440 --> 00:25:26,942
It was awful.

481
00:25:27,901 --> 00:25:29,694
I was really lonely.

482
00:25:30,946 --> 00:25:32,155
I cried.

483
00:25:34,115 --> 00:25:35,867
-You did?
-Yeah.

484
00:25:36,368 --> 00:25:37,452
A lot.

485
00:25:38,703 --> 00:25:40,622
It was kinda like a breakup.

486
00:25:43,416 --> 00:25:44,292
I'm sorry.

487
00:25:49,839 --> 00:25:50,674
Hey.

488
00:25:51,883 --> 00:25:54,553
What you did tonight,
what you said to Theo...

489
00:25:54,928 --> 00:25:56,429
That was really brave.

490
00:25:56,513 --> 00:26:01,059
No, you are definitely way better
at dealing with stuff like that than I am.

491
00:26:02,018 --> 00:26:04,688
I don't know. I thought you were great.

492
00:26:05,146 --> 00:26:09,025
In fact, I thought you were so great
that you deserve a trophy.

493
00:26:13,530 --> 00:26:15,073
Is that-- Did...

494
00:26:16,116 --> 00:26:18,118
Did you steal a child's trophy?

495
00:26:18,201 --> 00:26:21,079
Yes, I did. I stole a child's trophy.

496
00:26:21,162 --> 00:26:23,164
[both laughing]

497
00:26:24,833 --> 00:26:26,209
You're crazy.
