[over the phone, after Rachel finds out her ex-husband wants their house]
Rachel: I just want this to be over.
Andy: Rachel, you need to fight this, and you know that. Come on. Richard didn’t work for the house. You did.
News Anchor: Police are actively searching now for the homeowner’s ex-husband, who was last seen fleeing the scene in a gray pickup truck early this morning. Our own Pat Davereaux
spoke with a neighbor about the suspect’s history of substance abuse and violence after a workplace injury.
Neighbor: She had a restraining order on him. And now she’s gone. He just couldn’t face it.
[Fred changes the channel]
Kyle: I was watching that.
Fred: It’s way too early for real life, dude.
[referring to her scissors]
Rachel: Found them. Under one of your piles of trash.
Fred: Hey, science has proven that piles are the most efficient filing system. I read that somewhere.
Fred: You know, Rachel, maybe you could learn a thing or two from Mary about fiscal responsibility.
Mary: Rachel, I’m sorry.
Rachel: It’s okay. I really love having you and my brother here. But if you’re so fiscally responsible, maybe it’s time to kick in some rent here.
Fred: Rachel, you’re the one that said that we couldn’t stay at mom’s.
Rachel: We need to sell it. And you know that. Okay? I can’t afford to pay for her care, and you really can’t either.
Fred: No. No. I told you, I’m working on the business, and it’s going to start soon.
[as Rachel is driving Kyle to school]
Rachel: Remember, it’s not “per-spective”.
Kyle: “Prospective.” P-R-O-S-P-E-C-T-I-V-E. “Prospective.”
Rachel: Nice job.
Kyle: “Precarious.” P-R-E-C-A-R-I-O-U-S.
Rachel: Use it in a sentence.
Kyle: The way the glass is placed on the edge of the table is precarious.
Rachel: Nice. Good job.
Kyle: Three tardies is an automatic detention.
Rachel: I’m doing the best I can here. Okay?
[as they hit traffic]
Rachel: Seriously? I can’t believe this.
[after Rachel tells her client she’s going to be late due to traffic]
Deborah: I can’t do this again, Rachel. You know what? I’m going to call Linda’s guy and get in there. I love you, Rachel, but ever since you lost your salon, I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but you’re fired. Get your s**t together.
[she ends the call]
Rachel: Deborah, no. Wait. I’m sorry, okay?
Rachel: Eight miles, you know. That’s it. What takes ten minutes on a Sunday, takes an hour every other day, and wrecks your career. You know why? Too many cars. Too many cars, and too many people.
Kyle: Didn’t you also oversleep?
Rachel: Yes. Yes. And I overslept. You’re absolutely right.
[stuck behind a truck as the traffic light turns green]
Rachel: It’s not getting any greener. Come on, man. Come on!
[she honks her horn at the unmoving truck]
[she honks her horn again then overtakes the truck]
[the man that Rachel overtook earlier is stuck in the traffic next to her car]
Man: Morning. I don’t even get a courtesy tap first?
Rachel: Roll up your window.
Kyle: It’s not working.
Man: You know what a courtesy tap is, young man?
Rachel: Just ignore him.
Man: Sounds like this.
[he taps his horn lightly three times]
Man: It’s light. It’s friendly. Just like you’re trying to get somebody’s attention. I’m sure that’s what your mom meant.
Man: Is that right, ma’am? Is a courtesy tap what you meant?
Rachel: No, it’s not.
Man: Why is that?
Rachel: The light was green, and you weren’t moving.
Kyle: Mom. Stop it, please.
Man: Some of us have places to be.
Man: Yeah, I admit to being a little zoned out back there. I’ve been kind of having a hard time lately.
Rachel: Yeah, well, join the club.
Kyle: [to Rachel] Stop it.
Man: Well, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you are, and I’m sorry that I might’ve made it worse.
Man: You accept my apology?
Rachel: Sure. Whatever.
Man: Perfect. If you could just do the same, we could press reset. Ma’am, I was saying, if you could just apologize…
Rachel: Yeah, I heard you.
Rachel: I don’t have anything to apologize for, sir.
Kyle: Mom. Just apologize.
Rachel: [to Kyle] It’s okay.
Man: Well, I don’t think that’s really true of any of us now, is it? But that’s where we are in this world today. We seem to have developed a fundamental inability to apologize to anyone, for anything.
Man: [to Rachel] I don’t even think you really know what a bad day is. But you’re going to find out. You hear me, miss? You’re going to f***ing learn.
[as the man swerves his truck in front of them]
Kyle: Oh, my gosh! Stop!
Rachel: Are you okay?
Rachel: What’s this guy’s problem?
[to Kyle, referring to the encounter with the man]
Rachel: So that was terrifying. You know, some people are just jerks, and that’s all there is to it. Everything’s going to be okay.
[after dropping Kyle off at school Rachel calls Andy]
Andy: What happened?
Rachel: Oh, God. Freeway was a parking lot, and my biggest client couldn’t wait, so she told me to go to hell.
Andy: That sucks.
Rachel: Yeah. And then some psycho flipped out on me and Kyle driving to school.
Andy: And all this before noon. S**t. At least the day can’t get any worse, huh?
Cashier: Ma’am, are you okay?
Rachel: Yeah. Actually, no. I’m pretty sure the guy in that truck is following me.
Cashier: Is he somebody you know?
Rachel: No, we kind of exchanged words at an intersection. I honked my horn at him, and now he’s…
Cashier: He’s road raging you.
Rachel: You could say that.
Cashier: You want me to call the cops?
Leo: No, that’ll take all day. Besides, that’ll just pi** him off even more.
Cashier: Might. Might not. Look, I can call them.
Rachel: I don’t know. I’m probably just being paranoid.
[as Leo offers to walk out with Rachel to her car]
Leo: He’s just trying to scare you. If he sees both of us together, and he doesn’t drive off, you still get in your car. I make sure I get his plates. If he follows you out, then we’ll all call the cops.
Rachel: Okay. Thanks. I appreciate it.
Leo: [to the man] Why don’t you just chill, man? Go your own way.
[the man watches as Rachel drives off]
Leo: It’s a smart move staying put, bro. I got your plate right here.
[suddenly the man hits him with his truck]
[as the man in the truck drives beside her and holds up her phone in his hand]
Rachel: What? That’s my f***ing phone. Oh, God. What’s wrong with you?
[after the man meets Andy at the diner he’s meeting Rachel at]
Man: I’m Tom Cooper. I’m an old friend of Rachel’s.
Andy: Oh, hey. That makes two of us. Have we met?
Man: No. I just moved to town a couple weeks ago. Rachel told me she was meeting you here.
Andy: Yeah. Well, you know what? She’s very, very late.
Man: Well, she asked me to apologize. But it’s hard to tell the level of sincerity in that, isn’t it?
