Yes, I invented something,
and no, I will not tell you what it is.
What about what's-his-name, your half-brother?
雷 我不能去找他 我刚认识他
Ray? I can't go to him. I just met the guy.
I'm not gonna hit him up for a favor.
You were also kind of a dick to him.
Takes two to dick.
Not with my new invention.
Hey, why not have Christy represent you?
Oh, that's a good idea. She's almost a lawyer.
What are you talking about?
I'm not even in law school yet.
I still have to take a gym class.
Your mom's not up for murder, she just owes some money.
The IRS just wants to make a deal.
They don't try to put anybody in jail.
They put Wesley Snipes in jail.
Not helping, Wendy.
It's just that they robbed us of so many action-packed movies.
You could do it.
What do you think?
Do you know anything about taxes?
I know you're supposed to pay them.
That's more than me. You're hired.
What do you think?
Can I plead insanity?
You can plead you're a magical elf,
you're still gonna owe them 18 grand.
I don't think I can help you, Mom.
Hey, I did not raise you to be a quitter.
The first half of that sentence is correct.
Christy, I brought you some coffee.
Did you bring me one?
Give me a break, I only got one crotch.
Just to be clear, no matter how late I stay up tonight,
I'm not gonna become a tax lawyer by tomorrow morning.
Don't say that. I believe in you.
Yeah, well, who cares?
All right, I see what's happening here.
Someone needs a little positivity.
Maybe this will help.
Adam, make her stop.
You know what?
This is actually kind of helping!
This is the unhappiest place I've ever been,
and I've waited in line for eyeglasses at Costco.
Stop talking. You're making me nervous.
What are you nervous about? Your neck isn't on the line.
Hey, I have to pretend to be a lawyer, pretend we have a case
and pretend these stockings aren't halfway up my ass.
Sorry to keep you, but I'm on a liquid diet
and everything's coming out basically how it went in.
If you're not feeling well, we could reschedule.
I've got ten minutes till the bell rings again.
So which one of you is Ms. Plunkett?
Technically we both are, but she's the defendant.
I'm Christy Plunkett, her daughter and legal advisor.
All right, I looked over your file and it appears
you didn't declare income for the last three years.
Can you explain that?
Yes, we can.
You don't have to stand.
Okay, but while I'm up...
We contend that this has been a misunderstanding.
My mom, A.K.A. Bonnie Plunkett,
didn't know she was supposed to report free rent as income.
Yeah, you see, this is my first time managing a building.
I wasn't aware of how it worked. You get that, right?
So what did you do before you managed a building?
Gosh, it's been so long.
I hardly remember what I had for breakfast.
I had spinach juice.
All right, let's set aside the last three years.
What is of more concern to the IRS is
the fact that you haven't filed taxes since...
In light of this new information,
which the state should have disclosed during discovery...
This isn't a trial.
Nevertheless, I would like to ask for
an extension on this hearing.
It's not a hearing.
Could we please come back later?
Works for me.
Just call for an appointment.
This is a gift from God. Run!
How on earth do you go 20 years without
paying your taxes?
Like we say in the program, one day at a time.
So what happens now?
Well, I got them to give us another week.
Which means you've got a lot of work to do.
No. I am not a lawyer.
I am a junior at a college that's best known for Web design.
It's time to call Ray.
Oh, come on.
I want to meet your big shot half-black half-brother.
Calm down, he's gay.
You sure he's not half gay?
He's half everything else.
We're trying to keep my mom out of jail.
You can try and flip him later.
I told you I'm not calling him.
Why are you blaming Ray for all the crap your mother did?
我必须怪某人 当心点 你也是候选人
I have to blame someone. Careful, you're on deck.
Bonnie, you worked so hard to let go
of your resentment towards your mother.
Can't you do the same for your brother?
Well, that's a little hard, Marjorie,
since I have no idea why I resent him.
Well, you better figure it out,
'cause we're meeting him tomorrow at 2:00.
You already called him?
I sure did.
I don't ask much of you, only what I give in return--
诚实 尊重 最重要的 信任
honesty, respect, and most importantly, trust.
