大家好 我是邦妮 酒瘾者
Hi, Bonnie, alcoholic.
Well, as if being a single mom wasn't stressful enough...
...I'm also the manager of an apartment building.
Anyway, the owners of the building have started this thing
called an "Annual performance evaluation,"
which is worrisome 'cause, uh....
no one in the building really likes me.
So, I called Marjorie and she said,
"Bonnie, nothing changes
If nothing changes.
Just do one thing different
and see what happens."
Do I really sound like that?
So, starting today,
when a tenant asks me to fix something,
I'm gonna give 'em this finger
instead of the one I want to give 'em.
Who'd like to go next?
Hi, I'm Jill, I'm an alcoholic.
Well, I have my final meeting
with my caseworker today, where they tell me
if I'm approved to be a foster parent.
I've done everything they asked--
I put a big ugly fence around my pool,
childproofed my whole kitchen.
It takes me ten minutes to get a damn cracker.
I am terrified.
I want this so bad.
I called Marjorie about it. She said,
"Jill, you are in the actions business.
God is in the results business."
You sure I don't sound like that?
Not at all.
So, I guess we'll see what God's got in mind
this afternoon at 1:30.
Wouldn't hurt if y'all said a little prayer for me.
If you want, I'll go to your appointment with you.
You'd do that?
It's like Marjorie always says,
"Christy, in this program,
we never have to do anything alone."
You don't really sound like that.
Excuse me, sweetie,
are you here with a grown-up?
I am a grown-up.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I thought you were a foster child.
If you have a spare mother, I'm open to it!
Hey, what'd they say?
Let's just go.
Wait, what happened?
They turned me down.
My caseworker thinks I haven't been sober long enough.
I can apply again in a year.
I'm not saying I'm gonna do it,
but this is kind of a Xanax moment.
No, hold on. This isn't right.
Hey! You listen to me.
You are making a gigantic mistake
turning down Jill Kendall.
We're both in AA and I can tell you
she is totally committed to her sobriety.
Thank you. And she will make one hell of a foster mother!
There's a poor little child out there who needs her,
and shame on you for standing in the way!
- Sorry I'm late. - Where have you been?
Managing a 32-unit apartment building.
Some of us work for a living, Wendy.
I'm an emergency room nurse.
And I actually help people.
Case in point, Mrs. Slivkin in 2E
now has a working light fixture in her bathroom.
Ignoring her took six months, fixing it took six minutes.
There's a lesson in there somewhere.
It's my caseworker.
What does she want, to reject me again?
Hey, Barbara, what's up?
Your crazy little outburst changed her mind.
You should have seen me. I actually spit a little.
They have a child for me.
- Awesome. - u202dThat's great. u202d
It's a little girl named Emily.
Oh, I always wanted a girl.
Oh, that's perfect.
She's 14 months old.
Excuse me, what?
14 years old.
I'm sorry, can I call you right back?
Teenage girl, she's bounced around the system for a while,
dad's gone, mom's an addict.
She sounds like our people.
What are you thinking?
I don't know.
I mean, this whole time, I've only pictured myself with a baby.
I can't dress a teenage girl like a bumblebee
and make it my Christmas card.
But think about all the good you can do for this girl.
Yeah, I lived this. No one wants an older foster kid.
You're like one of those hot dogs at the gas station
that's been on the roller too long.
You have a chance to do something wonderful here.
You can help this girl not turn into
an old hot dog like my mom.
Do you have to give 'em an answer right away?
No, the next step would be
to meet and see if we like each other.
I guess I can do that much.
Slivkin. I fixed the light in her bathroom,
now she can see the black mold in her shower.
No good deed, huh?
