my parents gave me a baby duck.
I named him Lucky.
This better go somewhere, Wendy.
I was so afraid that something would happen
to my little baby duck, I took him with me everywhere.
Seriously, I'm a woman on the edge.
He had a cage in the backyard, but I was worried
coyotes would eat him, so I brought him to bed with me.
And... I accidentally rolled on top of him in my sleep,
and that was it for poor Lucky.
So you're saying I could kill my son by caring about him?
I think she's saying, in her own adorable way...
...that it is possible to love something too much.
You really think I need to stop seeing that guy?
Hang on, Jill.
I mean, his wife's not back till Tuesday.
Christy, is there a chance
that you're going past mothering into smothering?
You know, Marjorie, just because it rhymes
doesn't make it good advice.
Oh, I've been wanting to say that for so long.
You're carrying around so much anger
about your mother, about your son.
Have you thought of trying Al-Anon?
I don't want to go to Al-Anon.
All those people do is bitch and moan.
All right, I'll say it.
You'll fit right in!
I just think it would help you put your focus on yourself
instead of the things you can't control.
I come to you with serious concerns about my child,
and you give me more meetings and dead ducks.
It was just one dead duck, and he had a name!
When I got sober, I began to understand
the damage that I'd done to my kids while I was drinking.
And it haunts me.
I beat myself up about it every day.
And so I just wonder what it must be like for you
to not have any of those feelings about yourself.
- Hey, bud. u202d- Hey.
We're all done, but I'd love to talk
to the two of you for a few minutes.
Roscoe, you can wait here.
Yeah, I saw it.
So I've talked to Roscoe a few times now,
and I've also spoken to some of his teachers,
and I feel confident that he does not have a drug problem.
Oh, that's terrific.
An actual doctor says he doesn't have a problem.
You are an actual doctor, right?
I'm only asking 'cause in California
any clown can hang a shingle.
What are you basing that on, what Roscoe says?
He can lie to you just like he lied to us.
That's true, but I've been doing this a long time.
I've also been sober for 22 years, and I think that
what we're seeing with Roscoe is typical experimentation.
A 12-year-old smoking pot hardly seems typical.
It's not as unusual as you might think.
You were 12.
I was 11, and you're not helping.
So, what, you expect me to go home
and pretend this is no big deal?
- I think what Dr. LaSalle is saying... - u202dHey!
I'm not spending $150 an hour to hear from you.
Can you promise me that
this isn't gonna lead to a bigger problem down the line?
No, I can't.
But I can tell you that your son's trying very hard
to rebuild his trust with you.
Well, it takes a long time to get my trust back.
I'm going into my third decade.
Christy, I know what you're going through.
My husband and I have teenagers ourselves.
It's a scary world,
and you want to protect them from everything.
But sometimes all you can do is stay close
and let them find their own way.
Hey, while we're here,
I've been having a recurring dream where I'm at a...
a big fancy banquet, and there are a lot of important people there,
but I can't for the life of me find a place to pee.
What do you think that means?
Oh, sorry, I thought we were done with him.
Roscoe, wait here.
I'm gonna talk to your dad before you go in.
You mean yell at him?
Would you rather I yell at you?
Take your time.
Put those down.
Are you gonna yell at me, too?
No. I think your mom's done enough of that for both of us.
I just want to know how you're doing.
Everybody keeps asking me that.
You know what, that's probably true.
I think you are fine.
Your biggest problem is you come from a crazy family.
Oh, for God's sakes, Christy!
I'm not putting a surveillance camera in his room!
And you have every reason to be mad at your mom and dad.
And even me.
I am kind of sometimes.
I totally get it.
I spent most of my life pissed off at the world.
So I got high, I made bad choices,
and then I got even higher to forget the bad choices.
Your mom wasn't much different.
She was mad at me, so she did a lot of dumb things.
Thank God both of us got our lives together.
是的 地窖里有红酒 冰箱里有啤酒
Yes, there's wine in the cellar, beer in the fridge,
and thanks to you, Xanax in the medicine cabinet!
My point is...
the best thing you can do is take your anger
and turn it into something positive.
