01x07 - Animals

[Both breathing heavily]

You and Dave gonna fag it up at Pottery Barn and get matching dishes and sh1t?

This is how it's gonna work?

Every time I meet a guy, you gonna send someone to almost kill him?


[Water splashes]


You really scared me, okay?

You can't just sneak in like that.

Patrick: That happens again, look, you call me.

Do you know what that is? Is that Baz, Pope, Julia?

What about Julia and Baz? Were they close, too?

I have an idea for a job.

[Glass shatters]

Paul: Please tell me they did not take my briefcase.

Some of those files are classified.

How bad do you want those files back?


J just broke up with me.


Like I know?

Take a shower, put on your wire, go to school.

He trusts me.

Smurf: I think I knew this guy.

Boy, I'd love to get back in touch with him again.


Hi there, kiddo.

Is this really the best time?

I mean, I can't find J anywhere.

Pope's been in the yard since 6:00 a.m., punching his stupid bag.

[Chuckles] You... you can't get laid here?

Did I forget to ask your permission?

Hand these out to your brothers.

[Scoffs] This is less than the half that we normally get.

You're a property manager. That's your paycheck.

[Chuckles] Wait.

You expect us to live on our actual salaries?

You gotta give the boys a little somethin'.

You know them. They need sh1t.

They're ready to hit a mini-mart.

They are or you, Baz?

[Zipper whirs]

We're talking about having another kid.

We're gonna need a bigger place.

Another kid?


I'm just wondering if it's the best time for you to knock up Catherine now.

Uh... I can handle it.

I'm sure you can.

It's all there. Just get it done.


Deran: What's your problem, Pope?

[Continues grunting]

You know, Smurf's taking off for the weekend.

Toby's taking her to Vegas. Some French circus sh1t.

I think Toby's gonna be our new dad.

Don't be jealous, baby. It's not a good look.

Now the kid from the 7-Eleven is gonna call when they start selling more phone cards.

We need to be ready.

Why don't we just tell Paul he's in?

I mean, we have all this confidential sh1t.

What are we waiting for?

If you come at him with threats, he's gonna stand up on principle.

What are you, a psychologist now?

You want someone next to you who doesn't wanna be there?

I don't want a guy next to me that I can't trust!

[Punching resumes]

I'm easing him in. Just give me a few days.

Anybody heard from J?

Well, somebody better find out what's going on with that kid.

When this phone rings, answer it.

Here's $1,000. Have fun. See you tomorrow.

Deran: Hey, bring a rubber. Toby gets around.

[Punching continues]




[Plate clatters]


[Dog barking in distance]

So I'm a pretty terrible cook, but it's food.

[Dish clatters, utensil clinks]

You know, it's not... typical for teachers to have their students spend the night.

[Utensil clinks]

I'm sorry. I should get... I should get back.

Wait, that's it?

You just show up here, all freaked out, don't tell me anything, and now you're leaving?

I'm sorry. I don't think so.

You're not going anywhere until you talk to me.

Come on. You know I can keep a secret.

My uncle just got out of prison.

Which one?


He, uh... [Clears throat] he robbed a bank.

[Inhales deeply] He wasn't alone, but... he was the only one that got caught.

Who else was with him?

They were all in on it. All of them.

My other uncles, my grandmother.

You know, she's the one that's kind of in charge, so...

In charge? You mean, like... they've done this kind of thing before?

And you found out.

Is that why you're so scared?

Then what is it?

They're planning something else.


You training for something we don't know about?

[Continues panting]

Pope, if I had known about the pills...

You knew!

No. I would've told you.

There is no way that she drugged me without you signing off on it.

You knew.

She wants you to find out if I'm still taking 'em?

I can't tell which version of me you like better... drugged up or crazy.

I kinda think you like me crazy. Less competition.






You know, maybe we should go back to Belize.

You know, surf Long Caye, swim with turtles and sh1t?

You know, I was thinking maybe it could just be you and me this time. [Sniffs]

[Surf rolling]

[Sea birds calling]

What's wrong?


I saw Dave yesterday.

He's got some kind of infection in his lungs.

He's back in the hospital.

You guys still...

Nope. [Sighs]

Maybe we could go to the D.R.?

You know, go in December, surf Encuentro.

What's up, Adrian?

Hey, Craig.

How is it?

It's pretty good. It was really fat earlier. Yeah.

You been competing?

[Liquid sloshes]

Uh, here and there.

Oh, must be why we haven't seen you.

No, I've been around.

Ran into Toby in the lot.

Guess who doesn't know sh1t about Vegas?


Hasn't talked to Smurf in a week.

She left us a grand. I mean, what are we supposed to do with that except throw a balls-out party?

You pencil us in or you got an ESPN interview to do?

Yeah, you should come.

Guess I'll be there.

All right.

You did good.

See? It's not that hard when you put your mind to it.

Good. Well, what? Can you arrest them now?

I mean, he implicated the entire family. It's all on the wire.

He talked about a 3-year-old crime he wasn't witness to.

A few small-time B&Es.

It's good. You got him talking.

Now we get him talking specifics... the next job, his role in it.

His role?

No, I thought you said we had to get him out.

If J cooperates, he can plead down.

A felony conviction would ruin his life.

He's a smart kid. He should be going to college.

I mean, Jesus, his mom just died.

Plenty of ex-convicts have made something of themselves.

No, no, no. You told me that I could help him.

I am doing this to protect him.

Let me be very clear.

You are in this situation because you are weak and selfish.

And you're gonna get yourself out of this situation by being weak and selfish.

That's who you are.

If you wanna tell yourself you care about this kid, be my guest.

But you will do whatever you need to do to get him talking because you don't want to go to prison.

I owe you big-time.

[Chuckles] No, I was happy to do it.

No, I do. I do.

I just feel bad my guy couldn't get the computers.

The asshole already sold 'em.

Oh, forget that. Let me take you to dinner.

Right? Or... or let me buy you a car.


If I could afford one, I-I would buy you a car today.

No. Okay.

You know what, though? While I have you here...

I got a problem with our books.

You want me to look at something?

No, no, no, just some advice. Um...

We made a little more money on our properties than we'd like the federal government to know about.

Mm. Little tax evasion, money laundering...

[Laughs] No.

...that sort of thing.

Is that what we're discussing?

No, no, no. Neither.

Hypothetically... if someone wanted to move some money and save it for later, how would he do it?



[Paul and Baz speaking indistinctly, dog barking]

Paul: ...plumbing, electrical business.

Something to maintain your building.

Baz: Hmm.

And then you would pay that vendor for services rendered, only you're the vendor.

Well, the problem with that is everybody's done it.

The IRS is kind of hip to it, which is what made offshore accounts so appealing back in the day, but now there's a...

Actually, I gotta go.

My car is in the shop, and I gotta get my kid to baseball practice.

Oh. Yeah. Take the Challenger.

[Keys jangle]



I got plenty of cars around here I can use. Take it.

Saving my ass again?

Yes, I am.

Thank you.

I'll bring it back, uh, this afternoon. Your place.



How's Nicky?


You guys are young. I understand that.

But you were kinda harsh on her, weren't you?

Yeah. I'm sorry, I just...

No, it's okay. You know, it's none of my business.

I just... [Inhales deeply]

[Sighs deeply]

Take care of yourself.

Hey, look, I'm... I'm sorry about last night.

You know, I was walking around the beach all night, thinking about what you said. And...

I tried to call Nicky to get her back.

You know, I didn't want to come home until I fixed things, but I couldn't.

If you care about her, you're gonna stay out of this.

You try to warn her, I promise you, she's gonna get hurt.

Go get some breakfast.

[Bottle scrapes]

[Footsteps depart]

[Sea birds calling]

Thought I'd never hear from you again.

Did you get it done?

Yeah, I screwed their cameras up pretty good.

Won't be able to get a technician in to fix it till Monday.

They're flyin' blind all weekend.


You stealing cars now?

This is business, baby. That's it.

Just a guy you call when you need something up north?


You're an old friend who's doing me a favor... because I paid you.

Yeah, all right.

How's Craig?


That's all I get?

Look, my boys don't know about this, and I don't want 'em to.

He still look like me?

He never did.


Good seeing you, too, Smurf.

Take it easy. [Chuckles]

You know, that sh1t's terrible for you.

Humans aren't built to digest cheese and sh1t.


Are you following me?

You don't return my calls.

Had to track you down.

You're staying at a hotel now?

Catherine finally realized she could do better?

Just a rough patch.

Imagine my surprise when I heard someone cut a hole in the wall of a strip mall in San Marcos and jacked a safe from a landscaping business.

I got your cut.

We were supposed to do that job together.

I never agreed to that.

I'll find something for us to do together.

I just haven't been able to find the right thing.

Well, you're in luck 'cause I'm full of ideas.

Like what?


Last time I told you about a job, you jacked it.

No, this one's solid. I've been casing it all week.

You in? Or you need the okay from the family?


Yeah, I'm in.

[Yak's "Use Somebody" playing]


[Sea birds calling]




[Bag thuds]

Got these weird crackers Lena likes. Where is she?

Playing four square down the street.

Angela's watching her.


Oh, sh1t, no.

[Both laugh]

No, I can't. I can't. I got too much sh1t to do.

Five minutes.

No, no, no.



Maybe 15.

[Chuckles] Please.

No, I can't.

You forget how to make a baby?

[Laughs] After the job, okay?

We're not gonna have s*x till after the job?

Look, look, look, look. Listen to me.

When the money's clean and we got a new house...

[Whispers] I'll get you so pregnant. I promise.

What'd she say?


You know who.

She doesn't want you to have another baby with me?

Two days ago, you were begging me.

Smurf didn't say anything. Come on.

Vin: I'll take the teller. You take the guard.

There's only one. He's about to collect social security.

Pope: It's the middle of the day.

That's the point.

They close down for lunch.

We go in as soon as they re-open. It'll just be the two employees.

Have you ever hit a bank?

You can't just go in with guns.

How many cameras?


One on the door, one behind the teller, and two in the main room.

We're gonna wear ski masks.

When we get in...

[Metal ball rattles]

...black out the rest.

Except we're already on camera.

There's one... two right here in the parking lot.

First thing the cops will do is pull the tapes. No.

I'll find us a job. This isn't it.


See, it's hard to believe a guy when he's lied about everything else.

Catherine's not your wife, for example.

You thought I wouldn't find out?

Maybe you just thought I'd never get out, so you promised me sh1t you couldn't deliver.

What do you think your brother will say about you jacking off to his girl the past three years?

[Inhales sharply]

You do what you want.

I ain't going back to prison for you or anybody.

[Inhales sharply]



[Engine revs]

[Engine turns off, car door opens]

[Car door closes]


[Hose thuds]

Don't you know we're in the middle of a drought?

Yeah, don't tell the DWP.


How was the game?

Terrible. The kids can't hit. They can't catch.

It was like watching paint dry.

Yeah, you should see Lena dance.

Anyway, thank you.


All right?


I gotta go.


Lydia's picking me up at the pier.

Sure, man.

I appreciate it.

Hey. Take this.

What's that?

Uh, I talked to my finance guy.

Turns out the tip you gave is gonna pay off.

It's a little... little thank you note.

We were talking hypotheticals.

Hypothetically, there's 5 grand in there.

IRS doesn't come sniffin' around for 5 grand, right?

I-I can't take this.

You already did.



[Shifts gears]


[Tool whirring in distance]

Man: You must be Rachel.

Isaiah. How was your flight?

It was perfect. I slept all the way.

Well, it's good to meet you finally.

And you.

And there she is. She's a beauty.

Oh, yeah.

You're still serious about your purchase?

You bet I am.

I wouldn't have flown in from Austin if I wasn't.


Well, why don't we go start on the paperwork?

Sure. Sure.

[Dog barking in distance]

[Door creaking]



[Soft moan]

[Door creaks]

Oh. Oh.

[Groans, sniffles]

You okay?

No, I just thought...

I dropped... something.

I'm fine, Josh.

[Vomits, coughs]

Oh, God. Okay. Okay. Okay, come on.

[Cries, groans]

Come on, let's go to the bathroom.

Come on.


I'm sorry.

Come on.


Now, now, come on. You're okay.

[Whispers] I'm sorry.

You're okay. No, it's fine.


Come on.




Oh. Okay.


Okay. Uh, how much did you take, Alexa?

[Voice breaks] Just a little. I swear it was just a little.


Okay, we're gonna have to get you to a hospital.

No, no, no, no. No.

No, they'll take... my job.


They'll take... my whole...

No, no. Come on, wake up. Keep... No, no, stay awake.

No, stay with me.

Alexa, Alexa, stay with...





[Shower running]

I'm fine. [Groans]

[Whispers] Careful.


You okay? [Panting]

I'm sorry.

It's okay.

I'm so sorry.

It's all right.

These your kids?



They live nearby?

Mm, East Coast.

When my wife and I got divorced, she convinced Caitlyn to move to Connecticut.


I get 'em at Christmas.


So... how did you become a collector?

My mother loved cars. I think I got it from her.

Paperwork's almost done.

Now there's no rush.

You take her for a long, long spin and sleep on it.

And I will. I can't wait.

That's a great picture of you. Who took it?

That's not me.

Looks like you.

[Plastic crinkles]

[Cabinet door closes]


It's okay.

[Whispers] Thank you.

[Whispers] Okay.

Thank you.


Daddy told me he'd take you swimming.

[Indistinct conversations]


[Water splashes, girl screams]



Got you a present.

Baz did not tell me that you guys were having a keg party.

'Cause I didn't invite him.

Wanna get in some trouble?

Let's go.

All right, but be careful.


[Indistinct conversations, laughter]

Do you ever see any sharks?

Yeah, sometimes.

Wow. How big?

Well, they're usually baby great whites, so they can be, like, 6 feet, 5 feet.


Will you excuse me?

[Whooping and laughter]


Come on.

What's up? Huh?


Huh? What?

I'm just talking to her. What's going on?

I don't care who you talk to.

Okay, then. Then stop acting like someone died and have some fun.

It's a party. That's what you do at a party.

Is that an order?

What is your problem?

I don't want your brother throwing me off a boat in the middle of the night.

You said to be here, so I'm here.

Okay, you know what?

You wanna go? Then go. I don't give a sh1t.


[Footsteps depart]



Remember when he wasn't an asshole? [Scoffs]



Okay. Ready?

[Water running]

[Faucet turns off]

How are you feeling?

[Whispers] Thank you.

[Glass clatters]

I, um...

I was in a car accident a few years ago, and, um...

I started taking Oxy.

And somewhere along the way...

Yeah, my mom did heroin.

That's how she died.

[Whispering] I was sober.

I had six months.

I'm trying.


I'm trying.

[Crying] I just been under a-a lot of... pressure.

[Exhales deeply]



Please, please, please.

Let me. Let me do this.




[Surf rolling]

You Baz?

Yeah. Who are you?

I'm Vin. A friend of Pope's.


He never told you about me?


Doesn't surprise me.

We shared a cell at Folsom.

Wasn't always easy. I'm sure you can imagine.

Guard shot him up with so much Thorazine, he was droolin', makin' up lies to get himself through it.

Was tellin' people your girl was his, your kid was his.

What do you want?

Well, your brother made me some promises.

Then go talk to him.

Oh, come on. I know you're the guy in charge.

I'm a hard worker, got my own set of skills.

I'm value add, man. [Laughs]

[Sea birds calling]

Pope would've died in there if it wasn't for me.

Now I'm coming to you out of respect.

But I could go to Catherine...

You stay away from her.

You just figure it out with your brother.

All I know is... you're cuttin' me in.




[Indistinct conversations, laughter]


[Diving board rattles, water splashes]


Hey, baby, go say goodbye to Uncle Craig.

I stopped by the bar. You weren't there.

You gotta stop doing that.

Just let me get it out. Let me get this out.


I gotta go.

I hate that.

I hate the way you look at me. I hate it.

It's... it's like you're scared of me.


I'm taking these pills now, and I'm doing it for you. Okay?

Pope, you...

It... it just feels like... you're the only person who wasn't afraid to be alone with me.


[Whooping and laughter, water splashing]


[Indistinct conversations]

Yo, Jen's throwing up in the bushes.

Oh, sh1t. Really?

All over my mom's succulents.

[Sighs deeply]

[Speaks indistinctly]

Yeah, uh, she's asking for you.


Give me a second.

10 minutes.

Oh, give me a break.

That's all I needed.


[Snaps fingers] Out.

[Clears throat]

Come on, babe, let's go.

What's up?

Where's Adrian? [Sighs]

I don't know. He took off. Who cares?

I don't know give a sh1t who you have s*x with, man.

Why do you think I invited him?

I-I don't wanna talk about this either, but just don't be an asshole.

Adrian's a good guy. And this sh1t... is embarrassing.


Does everybody know?

[Pats leg] No, man.


[Pats leg]


[Cellphone alert chimes]


Wait. How'd a Texas girl grow up surfing?

I lived all over the place.

My mother loved to move around.

She liked to see different things.

Are you gonna tell me about that picture of you in your office?

You gonna tell me the truth?

Yeah, you caught me.

Yeah, so why did you lie about such a silly thing?

Feels like that was a whole lifetime ago.

I did a lot of things back then that I'm not proud of.

So what, the picture's a reminder?

Somethin' like that.

Well, now now you got me really interested. What did you do?

[Laughs] Just the usual stuff.

Broke a few hearts, crashed a few cars.

That's it?

What, not a good enough story for you?


You want me to make something up?


Won't you excuse me for a moment?




[Indistinct shouting and cheering]


[Cheers and whistles]

Your friend Vin just came to my house.

How does he know where I live?

He's been following me.

Okay. He told me you made him some promises. Is this true?

What else did Vin tell you?


I know you've always loved her, ever since we were kids, okay?

I know that. Cath is with me.

I'm sorry. That's how it is.

Yeah, Baz always gets what he wants.

Of course she loves you. Of course I scare the sh1t out of her.

Baz wants something, he gets it.

Doesn't matter what happens to anyone else.


Oh, bullshit.


Smurf kicked her out, that's my fault?

If you hadn't...

If I hadn't what?

You think I killed her, don't you?

That's what you think.

Who told Smurf about Julia and me?

Oh, Smurf just happened to walk in on us? Bullshit.

You played it wrong.


[Inhales deeply]



You're not the only one that lost her, okay?

I loved her.

I loved your sister.

She was supposed to be your sister, too.

You should've told me how bad it was for you in prison.

Maybe I could've done something.

Shall I get the keys? We'll take it for a spin?

Wait, talk to me about this one.

[Chuckles] This car?


1963 Chevelle.

This is my first car.

Total clunker, honestly, but I'll never sell it.

So this is the car that started it all, huh?


Saved all your money...

[Car door creaks]

Did odd jobs, stuff like that?

It that how it worked?

Actually, I sort of inherited it.


Yeah, there was a woman. This was her car.


Yeah. Beautiful, wild.

She lived in this car for years, with a kid.

Your kid?

No, just hers.

We were doing a lot of coke, weed, following bands around.

She got me into some small-time robberies to pay for the drugs.

How old was the kid?

Must've been... [Sighs] 12, 13 maybe.

You know, honestly, Miriam was out of her mind.

But the real reason I stayed was for that kid.

She was funny and smart and sweet.

Sort of took care of us both.

She loved to swim.

[Chuckles] She'd stay in the water till she turned blue.

I called her "Smurf."

I loved that kid.


Hey, I got a bottle of champagne in my office.

Let me grab it, and we can toast to your new car.

[Footsteps depart]

[Car door creaks, closes]

[Dog barking in distance]



Making a smoothie. Do you want one?


[Whirring loudly]

What's this?

[Whirring stops]

So you said they're planning something else.

Think they'll ask you to be a part of it?

[Mouths words]

[Crickets chirping]

[Cellphone ringing and vibrating]

Woman: Wait, whose phone is that?

[Grunting] Huh?

Whose phone is that? [Moaning]

[Ringing and vibrating continues]

Oh, sh1t! sh1t!


Where is it?

[Ringing and vibrating continues]

Aah! Goddamn it! [Sighs]

[Ringing and vibrating continues]

[Cellphone beeps]

[Panting] Hello?

[Continues panting] When?

Okay, thanks.

[Cellphone beeps]

I gotta go.

Are you serious?

[Belt buckle clinking]




Sorry I missed you at Smurf's.

[Bottles clink]

You still mad at me?


[Cap fizzes]


What? What is it?

It's Pope.

He keeps coming around.

He loves you.

He always has.

You can't blame him. Pope's Pope.

Cath, everything's fine. It's better than fine.

We're about to pull a good job here, life-changing money.

But I...

[Whispers] Cath, everything's good.

[Knock on glass, door slides open]

What is it?

The guy called. I didn't wanna call your cell.

[Footsteps depart]

What'd he say?

The 7-Eleven on the base sold three times the number of phone cards in the last two days.

That only happens before they deploy.

It's gonna happen this week.

[Keys jangle]

[Both breathing heavily]

What? What?


[Whispering] I just wanna be okay.

I just want us to be okay.

I just want it to be okay, please.


You wanna come inside?

Come on in.

You want me to come to a party?

I'll be there.

Or we can go surfing...


Go to Belize.

Whatever you want, man. You're in charge. You made that clear.

[Dog barking in distance]

But sorry, you can't make me feel something I don't.

[Inhales and exhales deeply]


[Inhales deeply]

[Footsteps depart]

[Keys jangle]

[Water running]

[Dish clatters]

[Turns off faucet]

[Closes drawer]

[Dialing cellphone]

[Line rings]


Can you be my friend right now and not a cop?

[Sighs deeply]


Help me, would you?

I'm sorry about the whole Nicky thing.

I hope you didn't take it personally.

Baz says we need Paul, so...

I guess we need Paul.

[Clatter, bags rustling]

He's mad you broke up with her.

Says we can't trust you.

I tried to tell him, love makes you do sh1t.


Goddamn animals.

[Men shouting indistinctly, ball bouncing]

Man: I got it, I got it!

[Indistinct shouting continues]

Paul: One sec, man. One sec.

Man: Come on, bro! You gotta stay on it.


Your wife told me where you were.

Everything's cool, right? The car's cool?

Car is fine.

All right.

I thought I was gonna have a little more time with this.

With what?

[Sighs deeply] I'm just gonna take a gamble, and I'm gonna tell you the truth, okay?

Should I sit down for this? [Laughs]

How do you think I got your briefcase back?

Oh, Baz, I don't know, man. I don't...

I know you don't wanna know. Thing is, it was easy... 'cause my brothers robbed your place.

Awesome. Maybe you can get my TV back. [Laughs]

Doesn't that make the most sense?

I mean, it makes a lot more sense than I know a guy who knows the ins and outs of the criminal underworld.

[Siren wailing in distance, ball continues bouncing]

Why would you do that?

'Cause you weren't ready and you needed a push.

Paul, you're a smart guy.

You can spot an opportunity when it presents itself.

I'm about to present you with an opportunity.


You're blackmailing me?

No. I know you'd stand up to that sort of thing.

You should get out of here.

No, no, no, don't do that. Don't get angry.

I'm talking about a partnership.
