Jack: "Mom? I need to go to the bathroom. Like our escape route that we talked about."
Sarah: "No. I mean, I see what you're saying, but this is for all the marbles. I still want to preserve the illusion that we aren't on the run for our lives."
Jack: "With all due respect, I have analyzed the situation here and I'm pretty sure it ends with me going into the system, like, in the next ten minutes. And as you can imagine, your paranoia about it and the horror stories that bubble up in your eyes each time you put a piece of gum in your mouth, I am fairly terrified of that possibility, so..."
Sarah: "We already have like a hundred problems right now."
CPS: "It's okay. If the boy wants to go to the bathroom, let him go to the bathroom. We're really here more to intimidate you anyway."
Sarah: "Oh hey, I just got an imaginary phone call."
CPS: "We believe that, because how are we to know that you're the only person on Earth who doesn't know how to put her phone on vibrate in 2012."
Linden books it to the parking lot, where Jack is waiting by the car. It's pretty damn smooth, and one of the more uplifting little moments in this show. I mean, it's hugely dysfunctional, and they have now gone from having a handful of things to having literally zero things, but hey. I may have forgotten to mention, also, that this AM Holder told Linden where he keeps his spare key. I thought he was just being sweet, but I see now that it was important.
Sarah: "But seriously, that was probably a bad call. This is probably a nutso thing we just did. If they found us here, where we literally checked in four hours ago, I'm guessing they know where I work. So on the one hand, good instincts. But on the other hand, you are compelling proof that I am a terrible parent, because you shouldn't have good instincts. You are a kid."
Jack: "Jack can't come to the phone right now. He is crying hysterically because that was the scariest thing that ever happened and he has no idea why. So please fuck off after the beep."
Darren: "[Charming charming charming] and now here's Rosie's dad, to read a statement, because all I care about is justice for that little girl I certainly did not kill."
Stan: "Nearly three weeks ago, my daughter Rosie, was taken from us. Our loss has made us realize how important every day is together. This could have happened to anybody, but... [This would be the part where he goes off book.] Rosie was my little girl. She was everything to me. But she means nothing to you people. Rosie would be gone and forgotten if you weren't using her [this would be the part where Jamie shits his slacks] to sell papers or get people to turn on the TV. She's not entertainment. She's my daughter. None of you... None of you give a rat's ass about doing what's right for her. I'm just like you, all of you out there who are watching. [This would be the part where Stan leans into the camera and starts drooling on himself] I don't have much. About $12,000. But the money's yours if you find Rosie's killer or help the cops find who killed my daughter. 'Cause somebody's gonna pay for this. Somebody's gonna pay for taking my daughter away. That's all I got to say."
