go-go boots and a hockey jersey.
Is that true?
是的 温蒂 我被赶出了曲棍球比赛
Yeah, Wendy, I got kicked out of a hockey game.
I couldn't find my car or my pants.
Over the past week, I've played lotto twice,
did a little online poker.
Even bet a busboy I could work an entire shift
without saying the word "Enjoy."
So I went with mangia,
but it made everyone uncomfortable.
But the point is, none of it triggered me,
which proves I am not addicted to gambling.
Yes, you are.
Maybe Christy's right.
I mean, I know someone who got really drunk
on New Year's Eve, slept with her Uber driver,
and mistook a neighborhood raccoon for her cat.
She got herpes and rabies in one night,
but she's not an alcoholic.
There you go.
I'm the gambling version of her disease-riddled friend.
And later, if you do discover you have a problem,
you know where to go.
everyone at this table can suck it.
- I gambled three times. - You keep saying that,
but you've always been a degenerate gambler.
What are you talking about?
By the time you were in third grade,
you were hustling drunks at pool.
That's 'cause someone used the bar at the bus station as day care.
It takes a village, Christy.
And the syrup goes in the fridge
unless you also want to gamble with botulism.
"Refrigerate after opening."
It's like you want me to have a gambling problem
just so you can be right; you're rooting against me.
Rooting against you?
Did I not stand in this very kitchen
and spend ten hours making you a cake?
You are on your way to getting a law degree,
and if you're not careful you can kiss that dream good-bye.
You know what I think? I think all you care about
is that I become a lawyer so you're off the hook.
- What hook? - In your twisted mind,
if I become a success, then it won't matter
that you were the world's worst mother.
Well, guess what.
You'll never be off the hook
no matter how many terrible cakes you make.
- You said it was delicious. - I lied!
It tasted like salad dressing.
How does that happen?
We were out of milk.
- Whoa. - What?
It's a check for $5,432.
Is it made out to me? Did I sell my book?
No, it's an excess check.
What the hell's an excess check, and how do I get one?
It's left over from my student loan.
It's for school supplies and living expenses.
- Well, then give it to me. u202d- No.
- You can't be trusted. - u202dNo.
Oh, my God, would you stop? Ugh!
And FYI, no one is buying your young adult novel.
You're a decade late for teenage vampires.
And FYI to you, I changed it to teenage robots.
And one of them's transgender.
I mean, is Christy right?
Am I really so selfish that the only reason
I want my daughter to be a success
is so that I'll feel better about being a bad mom?
I guess it's possible.
I mean, I know I can be selfish.
And if I forget, I've got people reminding me every ten minutes.
But I think maybe... this time it's about love.
Is that so hard to believe?
Something one could say in this moment...
is that I have indeed changed a little
in the last couple of years.
I do things for other people that don't just benefit me.
Like this ride to the doctor. Nothing in it for me.
Not even conversation.
Are you pouting because I won't let you drive again?
Hi, Ned, it's Christy from GA,
and, uh, I'm in the parking lot
of that casino off Highway 12.
And I've got $5,000 in my hand.
hope you're having a good afternoon.
And if you have a chance, call me back.
好吧 谢谢 再见
Okay, thanks. Bye.
Oh, screw it.
Mom, I need your help.
Don't think about gambling.
Don't think about gambling.
Don't think about blackjack.
Don't think about the Wheel of Fortune slots
with the progressive jackpot that's probably six figures right now.
What if I just have a shrimp cocktail
and watch other people gamble?
That'd be fine, right?
I think it would be fine. Let's go!
I'm here. I'm here.
Oh, thank God.
Oh, I'm so proud of you for calling me.
You still got the money, right?
Show me the money. Where is it?
I put it in the trunk. It was talking to me.
Okay, don't take this to mean I don't trust you,
but I'm gonna go check if you're lying.
妈妈 等等 你说得对
Mom, wait. You were right.
I do have a gambling problem.
But only when I have money.
And since I so rarely have money,
it doesn't come up that often.
Man, if we'd been rich, we'd both be dead.
And what I said earlier was unfair.
You really were just looking out for me.
I realize that hasn't always been the case,
so I get why you'd have your doubts.
You've really changed.
And I haven't at all.
I got here as fast as I could.
- Did she gamble? - She did not.
Good. Where's the money?
- In the trunk. - u202dAllegedly.
