I gotta pee, anyway.
how's it going?
Sorry, I didn't mean to wake you.
Yeah, you did.
What's going on?
What's going on is--
the Mitchells have been married for ten years.
All right, you're gonna have to connect the dots a little more.
I waited on the Mitchells when they first got married,
and they come back every year for their anniversary.
was their tenth anniversary.
You know what that means?
Need more dots.
I have been at that stupid restaurant for ten years.
Oh, well, then happy anniversary to you, too.
Waitressing was just supposed to be a temporary thing
till I figured out what I wanted to do with my life.
Same thing happened when I sold knock-off handbags
at the flea market.
I thought-- I'll do this for a few months
to pay back my bail bondsman.
Next thing I knew, I had 300 teenagers working for me in China.
I wanted a career.
Not just a job.
What about going back to school?
I'd have to get my GED first.
You never graduated high school?
That doesn't reflect well on me, does it?
Okay, no problem.
Take the test, get your GED.
What kind of career am I gonna have with a high school diploma?
Fine, then your next step is going to college.
Oh, yeah, right.
With all the extra money we have,
I can go to college.
You can apply for scholarships...
Will you stop trying to fix the problem
and just listen to my feelings?!
Now I know why men hate us.
Are we almost done here? I have to pee.
Anyway, she's just afraid she's gonna be a waitress
who lives with her mother for the rest of her life.
Come on, that's not gonna happen.
Damn right, it's not.
You're gonna have to take her at some point.
How about we get some ice cream, go see a movie?
I don't know. It's pretty late.
It's 8:15, Alvin.
Like I said, it's pretty late.
What happened to you?
When we were kids, we wouldn't even start the night
till 11:00, 12:00.
Yes, well, we were young,
full of life and hope and cocaine.
I'll order you a double espresso.
Yeah, but then I'll be up all night.
So? We can fool around when we get home.
You want to go to a late movie and have sex?
What, am I Superman?
We can still stop for ice cream.
I just need to swing by the Rite Aid
and pick up something to help me process the dairy.
While you're in there,
get me a couple of D batteries and a men's fitness magazine.
大家好 我是史蒂夫 我是酒瘾者
Hi, I'm Steve, I'm an alcoholic.
I've been sober nine months and 16 days.
I know, right?
Anyway, I'm feeling pretty good.
Uh, the California Bar Association
has reluctantly agreed to let me practice law again.
Got a couple of new clients,
and a pretty cool desk I found behind a church.
So, all in all, things are looking up.
Oh, and I... I don't know if this is appropriate,
but, uh... what the hell?
If anyone here's going through a divorce,
or has slipped and fell in a large chain store,
I'll be over by the cookies after the meeting.
Okay, that's all the time we have for sharing today...
I liked your share.
Listen, I've been thinking about making some changes in my life.
Is there any chance I could talk to you sometime
about how you became a lawyer?
Want to grab a coffee after?
That'd be great.
No, no, no, no, I got it.
I guess... ever since I was a kid,
I felt that it was so unfair how some people got treated worse
just 'cause they didn't have money.
And I always wanted to do something about it, you know?
Be the kind of lawyer who helps them get a fair shake.
You know what we call lawyers like that?
All right, well, then I've got that part down.
My main worry is-- am I too late?
Is it crazy for me to try this at my age?
Not at all.
You're smart, you're motivated,
and a guy could just drown in those eyes.
So where'd you go to college?
Um, I haven't exactly done that, yet.
- High school? - I never finished.
I was a little too "High" For the "School" part.
It's actually one of my biggest regrets.
- Steve? - Right here.
Yeah, so listen, I know that I have to get my GED
and get my college degree...
Right, and then you're looking at three years of law school.
So, seven years, bam, you're a lawyer.
I'm a working single mom.
I couldn't go to school full-time.
So, ten years, bam, you're a lawyer.
Oh, my God.
The Mitchells will have been married 20 years.
Oh, they're this nice couple I wait on at my restaurant.
