Au restaurant, Mason et Ruben lisent alors que George arrive. Ruben remarque la piteuse qualité de son repas. Daisy les rejoint rapidement. Le cuisinier arrive et Ruben s'en plaint. Il demande à qui la faute et fini par dire "disons la poule". Il demande alors à Ruben d'accompagner Daisy pour son premier jour.

Joy accompagne Reggie chez une thérapeute. Elle insiste sur le fait que sa fille ait décoré un arbre avec des lunettes de WC et ajoute que sa soeur fut tuée par cet objet. Reggie demande des gâteaux mais la thérapeute n'en a pas. Celle ci conseille alors à Joy de donner des affaires appartenant à George à Reggie et demande à discuter seule avec la fillette.

Ruben est dans la salle d'attente du médecin qui est rejoint par Joy. Il attend son rendez-vous et converse avec Joy de la mort et de différentes cultures. Un employeur arrive pour remettre une bombone d'eau. Ruben le rejoint et prend son âme. L'homme, Norman, change l'eau alors qu'un sépulcreux prépare un mauvais coup. Norman glisse et se noie en avalant toute la bombone d'eau.

Celui ci va se faire tatouer mais Mason est également présent et prend son âme.

George retourne chez elle afin de rapporter l'objet qu'elle avait pris lors du premier épisode. Elle le dépose à la porte et s'en va. Reggie l'observe par la fenêtre de sa chambre.

Au bowling, alors que Ruben joue et fait un stryke, George se plaint de Daisy en disant qu'elle envahie sa vie. Ruben lui fait remarquer qu'il s'agit de l'appartement de George et que c'est à elle d'établir des règles. George veut que Ruben lui parle mais celui ci lui conseille de le faire seule. Il ajoute que Daisy se prend pour quelqu'un, quelque chose que George ne fait pas et qu'elle devrait faire. Il la compare alors à une quille. Il lui passe une boule verte et George la fait tomber.

Chez les Lass, Reggie et Joy déballent les affaires de George. Reggie choisi quelques objets dont des chaussures.Puis, elle ressort une coupe. Joy lui parle du tournoir de bowling où George et elle avaient failli remporter la première place si George n'avait pas fait exprès de perdre. Joy insiste sur le fait que George était solitaire et n'aimait pas le sport d'équipe.

Retour au bowling où George fait un stryke avec Ruben. Elle rentre chez elle, prête à en découdre avec Daisy. Mais elle la trouve éffondrée sur son lit. Celle ci pleure et se demande pourquoi elle se sent si seule. George est attendrie et veut la réconforter. Mais surprise, Daisy est en fait en train de réciter un texte et veut que George l'aide. George reste alors sans voix et décide de partir.

Alors que Joy part se coucher, chez elle, elle découvre que Reggie a déballer toutes les affaires de George et a transformé sa chambre en sanctuaire. Reggie lui demande de quitter la pièce car elle souhaite dormir. Joy ne sait plus quoi répondre et s'en va.

Au bowling, l'équipe d'Happy Time Cobras se fait battre. C'est au tour de George de jouer. Celle ci réussi son tour avec un énorme succès et fait gagner son équipe. Alors qu'elle s'apprêtait à lancer sa boule, elle se souvient de sa mort, du tournoi qu'elle avait perdu, des garçons qu'elle évitait et de sa soeur qu'elle rejetait. Elle s'en veut de ne pas avoir vécu et lance son éternel "shit". Toute l'équipe d'Happy Time est ravi et la porte sur leur épaule. George se sent fière mais remarque que l'un d'eux la plotte également. Elle se sent enfin vivante.

 

 

Episodes starts

a bird flying around in the sky

(VO) Since the dawn of man we've learned to emulate a bird's ability
to break free from it's earthly bonds--you know. Fly like an eagle,
whatever. But while you may soar to great metaphorical heights, none of us
really has wings and gravity never really lets up, all things eventually
come back to earth (Reggie is in the garden looking at the bird) There seems
to be a gravity for relationships too (the bird comes crashing down to
earth and goes beak first into the ground) no matter how high they fly they
always seem to find their way--(Joy comes behind Reggie and sees the bird
too - walks off in disgust when Reggie picks it up) well they find their way
home (and throws it back out of the garden and you hear a cat mewing in pain)

JOY: What, am I supposed to save every last scrap like it's something sacred?
DR HANSON: What about photos? you must have photos of George in the house
(Joy sighs deeply)

stories and invite
questions
JOY: Reggie's been stealing tiolet seats and bringing home dead animals. Do you
think

RUBE: They do this dance...(laughs)Man it is uh. (African style music playing in
the
background) It is something--where they--invite their ancesestors into their
bodies, and
they dance as if they were them. (she looks back at him) You got young girls
dancing like old
men, you got boys dancing like grandmothers and believe me, it is-- it is
anything but sad
(Rube looks at his watch saying 5 after 2. He jumps up and goes to the desk)
I'm supposed to be meeting someone here right about now, you wouldn't happen to

RUBE: Good luck with your daughter. Dance with her sometime, conjure up the old
spirits

Norman puts the container upside down - a graveling growls and comes down the
wall and turns
on the tap which leeks water onto the floor. he picks up the container and slips
on the
water which makes him gasp at the sight of the water butt coming down on him and
him
drinking all the water that is in it - you can see his stomach rising as it
happens)

in
death--quit before youre fired

MILLIE: I could just keep score

under the same
florescent lights. You knew him (Dolores holds out a mug) Take something

GEORGE: Tell her that?
(bowls, strikes)
RUBE: You tell her
GEORGE: She doesn't listen to me

GEORGE: I'd like to hit [i]her[/i] Can't you just talk to her?
RUBE: Alright, fine
GEORGE: Really?

RUBE: She think she's someone and she senses that you don't
GEORGE: That I don't think she's someone?
RUBE: That you don't think that youre someone

content to be
knocked down time and time again? or would you rather be the ball? I gotta tell
ya, being a
ball feels a hell of a lot better (throws the ball, strikes) Yes! Daisy's a
ball, youre a
pin

belonged.
Why can't I belong. Why can't you accept me(George reaches over and gets Daisy's
scarf and
gives it to Daisy) I just want you to hold me (George is looking puzzled)This
life has been
a collection of...diasppointments and...(she sits beside her) heartache (slowly
she goes to
put her hand on her shoulder to comfort her. Daisy whimpers)
DAISY: And scene. Whew "A collection of problems, disillusionment and
unhappiness" Why do I
always mutilate that line? Will you be a doll and help me run my lines? and
please don't be
afraid to stop me even if I'm off by one syllable, okay? (hands her the book,
George is in
shock) Come on, it's magic time. Okay and... action (sobs. George throws the

thinking) Come
on Millie. A strike and we beat these motherfuckers

Red hair: (smiling. Thinks) Should we go to Chili's after the game? I could suck
back some
ribs
THUNDER KITTENS GUY: (thinks) Miss, miss, miss. She's kinda hot

(VO)And bullshit pressure builds to a moment of paralysing fear, it's bizarre
what goes
through your head, standing frozen in a moment of sheer panic and my thought was
"Why did I
die?" or more to the point "Why didn't I live?"(clip of even't) Why didn't I
move,Why did I
just stand there like a bowling pin (clip of th ball going into the gutter and
joy coming
over to comfort young George) What made me so dead against having an
expeirence?(clip to
George sitting down on a bus bench, with earphones on and a guy comes to sit
down next to
her) Why didn't I talk to people who liked me? (she picks up her book and
leaves. another
clip, opening her closet door where Reggie is, she marches her out of her
room)Why didn't I
ever talk to my little sister? (lying in bed) Why didn't I live when I could
have? (clip of
inpact, "aww shit" that goes into George at the bowling alley - that goes to
young George
about to throw the bowling ball. a pictur of the bowling trophy. Then George
Throws the ball,
she waits patioently for the ball to hit (clip to Joy standing behind young
George, waiting
for it to hit. back to the bowling alley, the ball hits and it is a strike. The

(VO) I felt something I had never felt before--a hand on my ass. Who the hell
eas cupping my
ass? Probably that perv fom I.S. (looks to Delores) Oh god I hope it was that
perv from I.S.

flying
