– Good morning, girls. – Hi.
– Good morning. Mom. I made you scrambled eggs
and cream cheese. Your favorite. Can I take my car out
after school? Yeah, as soon as
I’m home from work. Can I go alone
if I stay close to the house? No, no–not until
the doctor says it’s okay. Could you just please sit down
and have a bite of those eggs that I slaved, like, three
minutes in the kitchen over? You can’t take your pills
on an empty stomach. Well, she’s not hungry
’cause she had herself a midnight snack. It’s still sitting there. Do we need to have another talk
about wasting? Uh, no, ’cause I plan
on finishing this later. Did you go out
last night? Um, just for some air. In the middle of the night? The air is out there
all night long. I don’t know what that means.
You’re talking about air? Why do I always
have to take her to school? ‘Cause she’s family now. She’s not family, Dad. Have a heart.

I keep asking you, you know, my odds are
bound to go up, right? – Do you know that you’ve,
like, struck out ten times already? For an athlete,
your batting average is shit. – Yeah, well, you know,
at least I play with heart, you know?
And I’m not even, uh, a baseball player,

Hey! Townes.
– Uh, someone took my pen. – Oh, come on.
Not this again, Townes. – Who took my blue pen? My blue pen was stolen.
– Townes… – My blue pen was right here.
– Earth to Townes! Sit down.
– My blue pen– – Sick of you
disrupting my class. – Someone stole my pen.
– Sit your ass down before I tape it
to your chair. – My blue pen was stolen. – I don’t care about your pen.
Take a seat. – It was stolen!
– Look, you have a black pen, you have a red pen.
You have two pens! – It was stol–
– Sit down! – I have a question for you,
Shelly. Why do we have to
call you “Doctor”? You’re not actually a PhD,
are you? I actually looked you up,
Mr. Gibson. You did your post-grad at the University
of Cincinnati, right? – Young lady, choose your
next words very carefully. – Well, they publish their doctoral dissertations
online. – Okay, you know what?
That’s enough. – Your Master’s is there. It’s a rambling piece of shit but it’s there.
– Principal’s office, now. – I just, like–it’s odd
that I couldn’t find your dissertation
– You know what? Get to the principal.
– Don’t touch me, dude. – Let’s go.
Get out of my classroom. Out of my class-
– I said don’t–dude! – Miss Coles,
get out of my classroom. Uh, Miss Coles? Miss Coles? Uh… Oh, Jesus. Uh… Sit down.
But–just– everybody just give her
some space. Oh, God. Oh, shit. Stay back. Jesus Christ. Uh, please call someone. Uh…oh, God. Um…somebody– somebody call the nurse. [machines hissing, beeping] – This is Henrietta’s second myoclonic seizure
in eight months? – Actually, it’s her third.
She had one at the house, but it was over so quickly
that we didn’t bring her in. – I noticed that you left some
of the questions blank here. If we want to get to the bottom
of these episodes, it would be helpful if we had
her father’s medical history. – Henry’s father left
when she was a little girl. – Is there any other family
on his side we could track down? – I’m sorry, no. – Okay, we’re going to
up the dosage of Henry’s Carbamazepine
and Lamotrigine. Lucy at the front desk
can help you out with that. – Okay.
– Um, can I– What’s going to happen
with my license? – Oh, yeah,
Henry was hoping that she could get her license
back next month. – I’m sorry. Unfortunately, that’s not
going to be possible. I have to file with the DMV
this afternoon. – Um, but the– the doctor last time said
that we could just not tell the DMV for now,
and we could wait. – It’s better for everyone
if you didn’t drive, including you. If we can get these seizures
under control, you can re-apply for
your license in three years. [desolate music] ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ – ♪ A right for a right

to express myself. – Don’t be a smartass. You know that’s not
what I meant. – You know, in most places, tagging is considered
an art form. – You know what?
Here, it’s considered a felony. – Look, I’m not looking
to lock anyone up, folks. If she pays a fine, promises not to do it again, I don’t have to bring her

I promise she will. – Yeah,
this will not happen again. You have my word. – Thanks for this. Can I speak to Henry a moment? – Yeah, of course. – I know what it feels like to be the new girl in town,
believe me. This particular town doesn’t do newcomers well. But Henry, you have to find other outlets. [approaching footsteps] – You’re not even trying,
Henry. – Why should I? – Well, you know, this is a good opportunity
for us, okay? We could really
build a life here. I finally feel excited
to come home to someone. – Mom… – What? – You’ve said that same thing
about, like, the last five guys that you’ve dated. – That is not fair. – Yeah, it is.
It is fair, because this is
what you do. You find some guy, you get sick of him, and then I have to move
to a new fucking town, and we have this conversation
every six months. – Okay,
was Burlington my fault when you stole that motorcycle? – What about Newton? We had to leave
in the middle of the night because of Phil the asshole. That wasn’t because of me. – Okay, you know what? You’re right, all right? But we’ve both made
some mistakes, and… this is different. – [laughs]

there are six different kinds of

on the matter. – No talking

in the room. It was an abnormal occurrence. Do you have a brain tumor? – Not that I know of. – I was hoping
you had a brain tumor. Brain tumors can cause psychic episodes. – Shh. – I didn’t cause things
