I thought when I got sober all this stuff
with Violet would get better.
Well, you've gotten better.
You're not who you were, and that's a big deal.
I just wish she could see that.
You should tell her.
But in person.
Doot-dah-do not leave another message.
What do you think, Marjorie?
I might be the wrong person to ask.
I don't have a relationship with my son.
So all I can do is focus on my sobriety
and hope that one day he'll forgive me.
Oh, poo to that.
My mom died before we were able to figure out our stuff.
别等了 你可能去世的 克丽丝蒂
Don't wait. You could die, Christy.
And call your son, 'cause you're definitely gonna die before her.
New bar opening this Friday. Free wings with this flyer.
New bar. Free wings.
Where have you been?
Trying to make sure Adam doesn't go broke
because of his stupid idea.
But you said it was a dream you shared.
Not how I remember it.
You are each responsible
for bringing ten people to the opening.
So, what'd I miss?
My death is imminent.
Oh, what else?
Jill and Wendy think I should go see Violet.
-我同意 -就算我想去 我也不知道她住哪里
- I agree. - Even if I wanted to, I don't know where she lives.
我知道 我是说 我也许能问到
I do. I mean, I could probably figure it out.
Okay, I've been there.
This is the part where you knock.
I'm too nervous. You do it.
What the hell was that?
I don't know. You made me overthink it.
-好啊 外婆 -维奥莉特
- Hi, Grandma. - Violet. Mm!
- Hi, Violet. - u202dHi.
You weren't supposed to tell her where I live.
I'm sorry, but I was caught in the middle,
and my instinct is always to heal.
It's not Grandma's fault. I made her tell me.
Well, you're here, so... come on in.
Ah. Oh, this is a great setup.
Luke must be doing well.
实际上 妈妈 我和卢克已经分手了
Actually, Mom, Luke isn't in the picture anymore.
But thank you for assuming I couldn't pull this off on my own.
- Strike one. - You're doing great.
you are obviously here to talk about the podcast.
Yes, I am.
I know you had a difficult childhood,
and I'm glad you found a way to process it.
I don't really need your approval, but okay.
Here's the thing you need to know.
What? You know I love pretzels.
The person you've been talking about
isn't who I am anymore. I've changed.
It's true, she has.
But the podcast is about being raised by an alcoholic mother,
which I was-- the damage is already done.
She's got you there.
can you at least tell your listeners I'm sober now
and trying to clean up the mess I made?
I got to say, that seems reasonable.
Put these on, talk into this,
and if you're chewing any gum, spit it out.
We're doing a podcast.
If you want people to hear your side, tell them.
Oh. You can't just do an episode called
- "My Mom's Doin' Good Now"? - u202dNo.
等等 你就需要这些工具 就能赚钱了吗
Wait. This is all you need, and you make money from it?
Not a ton, but yeah.
I am definitely starting a podcast.
Sober woman marrying a guy in a wheelchair,
sing a couple of songs-- something for everybody.
And here we... go.
-我还没准备了 -没事 慢慢来
- I'm not ready. - It's okay. Take your time.
Three, two, one.
While I was deciding whether or not to talk to my mom,
she took that choice away from me by showing up.
So now here she is with her side.
That's you. You're her mom.
我 呃 是克丽丝蒂
I, uh, I'm Christie,
我是维奥莉特的 呃 妈妈
I'm Violet's, um, mom,
等等 我说了太多呃 能重新开始吗
Wait, I said "Um" Too much. Can we start it again?
Well, I guess if I'm gonna tell my side,
I should start at the beginning.
I was conceived in a van.
Well, technically, it was a minibus,
and it was way more normal for people
to have sex in vehicles back then.
还有 我是救命稻草 各位粉丝好
Also, this is Life Preserver. Hello to all my fans.
I'm actually sponsoring three women.
They call me with their problems, and I help them.
So what I'm trying to say is yes,
all those horrible stories you've told about me are true.
But... nowadays, my idea of a good time
is hitting a meeting and going to coffee with my friends.
If I say I'm gonna be somewhere, I'm there.
I pay my bills. I keep my promises.
That's who I am now.
that's my side.
Thanks for letting me tell it.
First, I want to say, um...
you sound really good.
Clearly, you've done a lot of work on yourself,
and I'm happy for you.
But here's the thing.
I missed out on being a child.
When most kids were just showing up to school and focusing on algebra,
