Well, being an adult is hard.

And that's why it helps to be able to talk to someone who's done it for a long time.

- Yeah, like you're good ol' moms.
- Mmm.

We didn't wanna bother you.

Oh, my goodness, please bother us.

We miss you girls so much.

We do.

Do you know that your Mama has me listening to Ted Talks?

(LAUGHING)

And minute meditations.

Okay, did you guys know that minute is a moment with handles at both ends.

- Okay, wow.
- No, no, no.

Breathe with me, breathe with me.

- This will help you ladies.
- You must miss us.

Oh, you have no idea.

We miss you crying on our shoulders.

And forgetting to make your bed.

Clean your rooms and picking up after you.

- Let's not go too far.

We don't stop being your mothers just 'cause you grow up.

Bring it in.

STEF: Well, from my prospective, Cal, yeah, I think that you should disclose your relationship with Malika to the judge, I do.

Before he finds out about it from someone else.

Mmm.

And Miss Thang, getting yourself in debt, that is, that is, that is not good.

That is bad, all bad.

- I know.
- Mm-hmm.

I'm just so frustrated at work.

I didn't realize how much hostility there would be because I'm a woman.

And a Latina woman.

I'm just buying things to make me feel better.

Things aren't gonna fill you up, sweetheart.

And I know how hard it is to face discrimination.

And going from being such a superstar in college to being on the bottom rung of the ladder when you get out into the working world.

Especially being a woman and a minority.

Well, you are gonna climb that ladder so fast.

Like, people's heads are gonna spin.

They're gonna be like, "Oh, whoa! Where'd she come from?"

- Can't say it isn't. so.
- And you don't give up.

And don't you get so frustrated that you get discouraged and you stop trying.

Okay. I won't.

MARIANA: Promise.

Sorry to interrupt.

I just wanted to say I had no idea Jamal's mother would drop by like that.

It's okay.

It's hard because I wanna be there for her and... I wanna be here for you.

Well, that sounds like another reason to disclose, huh?

Wanna sit?

Yeah, come.

- Have a glass of wine.
- Yeah, join us.

Uh, I didn't bring up a glass.

It's okay, you can have mine.

I drink out of the bottle all of the time.

Oh, okay. That's new information.

MARIANA: Did I say that out loud actually?

- I'm so sorry.

You better change the subject fast.

Okay, new subject, new subject.

Mama.

Are you really dropping out of the race?

We sold our house so you could run.

CALLIE: Yeah, who's telling you you should drop out?

There are some party leaders who think I'm too progressive, too black...

- Too lesbian.
- ... to win.

And they think that... the Dems in San Diego who voted for this president are going to want a more centrist...

White.

Screw the party leaders.

- That's bullshit.

You know, when I wandered into your loft, stoned, sorry.

It's okay.

It reminds me that we still gotta fight.

Told me my life didn't matter and he called me the "N" word.

And some things have changed, but racism hasn't.

It's still as ugly and pervasive as it ever was.

That's why you can't drop out of the race, Mama.

Yeah. You can't let this minority of ugly people in this country win.
