So, Bonnie, 22 years at Merrill Lynch.
Why'd you leave New York?
Can I confide in you, Louanne?
I came back to take care of my daughter.
She's... mentally ill.
Oh, dear, I'm sorry.
Yeah, it's been pretty difficult.
Honestly, I thought I was gonna retire,
but I need to go back to work in order to pay for her care.
I mean, if she doesn't have 24-7 nursing,
she just tears off her helmet
and runs into the wall over and over.
Oh, my God.
Well, uh, I would love to have someone
with your background come and work with us.
Thank you, Louanne.
Thanks for looking out for me, Papa.
Now, obviously, we're not a big firm like Merrill,
so we couldn't pay you a base salary
anywhere near what you're used to.
What are you thinking?
Well, we couldn't go any higher than $85,000 a year.
I'm not gonna lie, that's quite a drop.
But we have a great bonus package.
Gosh, I'm sorry.
I-I don't want to waste your time.
No, wait, wait, wait.
Uh, what if we were to, uh, go up to $100,000?
You're really squeezing me here, Louanne.
All right, let's do this.
That is great.
Huh, you know, I just realized
that if you were at Merrill back in the '90s,
then you had to know Phil Eldridge.
Who didn't know Phil Eldridge?
Guess who's running our bond department?
You just stay here. He's right across the hall.
I'm gonna go get him.
- Yay. - Yay.
Phil, you will never guess who is in my office.
This is little Gwyneth's room.
Excuse the mess.
It's still a work in progress.
When I was a baby, I slept in the shopping cart.
And here she is.
She looks really happy.
I don't want to brag,
but, uh, the doctor says she has perfect poos.
- I-I-It... - No.
Do you want to hold her?
No, that's okay.
Aren't you a happy baby?
Thank you so much for letting us come visit on such short notice.
What's going on?
Nothing, she's great.
And that's a good thing, right?
I just don't have any excuses now.
What are you talking about?
I gave her up so that she could have this great life.
And she does.
And so that I could have a great life, too.
And you can.
But what if I can't?
What if I fail?
I mean, at least if I kept her,
I could have been this miserable single mom like you,
and everyone would feel sorry for me.
But now I'm actually gonna have to do something.
It's gonna be okay.
Buckle up, Suzanne.
This is what you've got to look forward to.
I wouldn't work here even if you did believe me!
I don't get it.
What am I doing wrong?
Come on, God, help me out here.
Give me a sign.
Oh. Okay. A sign.
Building manager, building manager.
I think I've got a resume in here for that somewhere.
Go eat vomit.
Oh, good, you're home.
Yep. I'm home.
I have good news.
You found my real mom?
Yes, she doesn't want to see you.
I got a job.
They're paying you in keys?
No, I'm managing an apartment building.
They're paying me with a free apartment.
We have a home.
Don't mess with me.
Honest to God.
- That's incredible! - I know!
Do you know how to manage an apartment building?
I do not.
That's okay! Let's jump again!
