In fact, if you really want to be a rebel in this family,
don't waste your time getting high,
do well in school and succeed in life.
I guess I can do that.
And if the goal is just to piss off your mom,
make a lot of money and buy Grandma a condo.
You kicked me!
I can't believe you kicked me!
Maybe everyone's mad at me,
but I think I'm handling this really well.
Everyone is mad at you, and you're not.
I'm a mama bear fiercely protecting her cub.
Yeah, or you're a middle-aged drunk
who's projecting her fears about herself onto her son.
Hey, I'm not middle-aged till next March.
Where'd you come up with this stuff anyway?
I've been going to Al-Anon.
Because I live with an alcoholic who drives me nuts.
So, wait, you're going to meetings to deal with me?
I go to meetings to deal with a lot of stuff.
But, yeah, mostly you.
How long has this been going on?
Why are we stopping?
'Cause I'm going to an Al-Anon meeting.
You want to come?
No, I would not.
You're not gonna try to talk me into it?
No. I'm leaving that up to you.
'Cause I can't control anyone else's life,
I can only control my own.
And, yeah, that can be really scary,
especially when it's your kid and you love them very much.
And that's what I learned at Al-Anon.
Anyway, I'll see you in an hour.
Try not to get abducted.
Do they have coffee?
Yeah, but I wouldn't drink it.
Fine, I'll go.
Great. Oh, just a heads up.
You're kind of famous in this meeting, but not in a good way.
What did you say about me?!
When I left the house this morning,
my wife was already three drinks in.
I know I'm not supposed to count,
but I just happened to notice.
And when I was walking out, she asked me
if I would call in sick for her.
But I didn't do it.
You see, because she's not sick.
I mean, she is, but in a different way.
It used to be that I would spend the whole day
just worryin' about her,
about us and what was gonna happen.
But I actually wound up having a good day.
Went to work, had lunch with some friends,
came here, and...
I'll deal with home when I get there.
We have time for one more.
Would our newcomer like to share?
Hi. I'm Christy and I'm...
What am I here?
That's enough. Go.
I don't know what to say exactly.
I guess what's happening is, uh...
...my 12-year-old son's been smoking pot and drinking beer.
I'm just really, really scared.
She's usually a lot more annoying.
