  • [Farrah] Do you have a key for Chadwick's office?

  • - What was he doing? - Let's go.

  • Come on in, Jayne, sit down.

  • Chadwick, you sick pup.

  • We have confidential information on half of the school.

  • Transfer the files to The Crotch drive.

  • And I'm not into Ilo anymore. We need to change direction.

  • I never even heard of Grace Ho, and now she's everywhere.

  • - Where'd they find her? - I think they made her in a lab.

  • Whole deal offers someone like you

  • a lot of ways to make some cash.

  • Cost you some cheap vodka upfront...

  • As long as she keeps her end up, I'll make it happen.

  • - Yeah, of course, I'm in. - [both] Grace Ho!

  • - [crowd cheering] - What now?

  • You keep your end of the bargain,

  • and let's plan a weekly meet.

  • Sound good?

  • I've been there. That's how it starts with her.

  • Good luck.

  • [Farrah] My mom says I'm lucky to be in high school

  • because I don't have to deal with any real-world problems.

  • It's so condescending.

  • Real world, high school-- it's all the same.

  • Everyone is just doing whatever they can

  • to appear like they're cool and have it all together.

  • Truth is, we're all wound tight as a coil.

  • Some just hide it better.

  • There's an actual medical term for it.

  • It's called Duck Syndrome.

  • Basically it says that when you see a duck

  • swimming across a pond,

  • it seems to be gliding effortlessly,

  • but if you take a look under the water...

  • - Hey. - Hey.

  • ...the duck is frantically paddling just to stay afloat.

  • [sniffs]

  • [girls chattering angrily]

  • Oh, hi, Tripp. What are you doing?

  • Changing for gym.

  • Is this a football hazing thing?

  • No, no, today, I identify as a woman.

  • In a manner of speaking

  • ♪ I don't think we'll be speaking at all

  • One, two! ♪

  • There ain't nobody gonna mess with me and my crew

  • Walk in my shoes, look what we do

  • How much did he win?

  • 20 bucks from jag-off Ilo.

  • It's so gross that Tripp would use the trans struggle

  • to win a stupid bet.

  • 20 bucks, that's not a lot for what he did.

  • - [laughter] - Two heart.

  • Hey, when you were hooking up with Tripp last year,

  • - were there any signs? - That he was trans? No.

  • Trust me, there was no gender fluid between us.

  • - 'Cause you swallowed it all. - Can we please?

  • I'm just saying there is zero percent chance

  • that he's legit trans.

  • Farrah, you don't actually think he's trans, do you?

  • I don't believe anything yet.

  • Are you serious?

  • I just think in situations like these,

  • it's best to judge slowly

  • and then judge even slower than that.

  • It was a bet. I saw him get paid.

  • I'm not saying it wasn't.

  • I'm just saying that I'm open to the possibility

  • that there's more to it than that.

  • Which means she needs to know.

  • Okay, say Tripp is actually trans

  • and he's struggling with it.

  • That'd be sad, Farrah, defs.

  • That's not what's happening here.

  • You do realize that your search for the truth

  • is actually an OCD.

  • You should consider therapy.

  • It's not, and I'm pretty sure

  • that's offensive to people with OCD.

  • [phone chimes]

  • I'll be right back.

  • [drumline music plays]

  • Who shit in your sandwich?

  • - Your little Grace Ho puppet did. - My puppet?

  • She's not keeping her end of our election deal.

  • Some Student Council moral-high-ground bullshit.

  • Oh, man, we hate the moral-high-ground bullshit.

  • - We need someone who doesn't mind-- - Playing dirty? Yeah.

  • Don't worry about her. I'll talk to her, okay?

  • First game is after school Friday.

  • I need to be in that snack bar selling.

  • Mm-hmm, I got it. Fast.

  • I'm getting a vibe off this Grace.

  • I really don't think pulling her strings

  • is gonna be as easy as you think.

  • Wow, really going all the way

  • with that puppet metaphor, huh?

  • [laughs] Hey, I'll get it done.

  • - Okay? Don't worry about it. - Thanks.

  • There she is.

  • Let's not pretend this isn't weird.

  • - Hi, Dad. - How you doing?

  • Good, you know, besides your boxes

  • being in the garage and having to deliver your mail to you.

  • I'm gonna take care of it.

  • You can't keep staying in Air BnBs, so here.

  • What's this?

  • It's listings for local condos.

  • I know that signing a lease may make all this

  • seem more permanent, but--

  • Honey, I already found a place. I got a two-bedroom downtown.

  • Right in the middle of the gallery district.

  • Oh. The gallery district.

  • Yeah, I figured why not cut out the commute?

  • I've always wanted live in the center of the action.

  • Well, aren't you fancy?

  • Look, I, um-- I never wanted any of this.

  • [scoffs] Well, you kind of asked for it.

  • You know, with the roaming penis of it all.

  • Before I left, you agreed not to take sides,

  • and that sounds just a little like your mom.

  • I'm not choosing her side.

  • Just don't pretend that me having to walk your mail

  • out to the driveway just happened to you.

  • I know that.

  • And if I could've spun it differently, I would have.

  • But this is where we are now.

  • And I can't start over where every yenta in town

  • is talking about my divorce, you know?

  • - There's nothing for me here. - Nothing at all?

  • I told you, it's over with her.

  • I wasn't talking about your side dish, Dad.

  • Of course. I-I meant besides you.

  • [sighs]

  • That's why I got the two-bedroom place.

  • So you can hang out whenever you want.

  • And we can do city stuff together, you know?

  • Yeah.

  • Someday, I'm gonna find that asshole

  • who sent that tape to your mom.

  • [car starts]

  • [girl on tape] I don't know.

  • My sister stopped taking her Ritalin

  • and it actually helped her grades.

  • [conversation continues in background]

  • [door opens]

  • I'm not making belly pancakes.

  • Well, you've been watching upskirt videos all day.

  • I can only assume you've been dropping puddles left and right.

  • I'm not watching.

  • I'm listening, okay? And besides, you're the one

  • who told me to check through these tapes for any Tripp stuff.

  • I know, I was just kidding.

  • So far, not one word on any of these files

  • about Tripp being trans anything.

  • - Hmm. - I think it's time to accept that Tripp

  • is just an insensitive moron who made a bet.

  • Sometimes the answer is the one right in front of you.

  • People aren't always lying.

  • Apparently Grace Ho did.

  • She's not keeping her end of the deal with Hook.

  • So that's on me to fix.

  • Well, you did make that bed.

  • Okay, well, go back to listening,

  • and hit me up if you find anything.

  • Okay.

  • There's no reason for him to come back-- he already won the bet.

  • And even if he did it just to be a perv,

  • it's not like any of us are changing in front of him.

  • I don't even think Tripp wants to see us change.

  • Hey, did you get anything on Grace yet?

  • Well, obviously, she has more style, thanks to us.

  • Although, With-a-Y thinks those man-boots she wore yesterday

  • were a big step backwards.

  • They're a little too white supremacist for my liking.

  • Okay, first of all, the boots are dope.

  • Second, you didn't tell me that she has 713 followers

  • or that she updates three times a day now.

  • That's not all that much.

  • She had six when we found her.

  • You're shocked she's more popular?

  • We made her that way.

  • When's the last time she updated her latch-hooking Tumblr?

  • Two weeks ago.

  • Looks like she's dropping

  • her old hobby for a new hobby.

  • - What's her new hobby? - Herself.

  • Hey, what's up?

  • Hey. So we're doing this again?

  • Yeah. We're doing this again.

  • Okay. Let's do this.

  • Are you serious?

  • Yeah, why not? I mean, it's just us girls, right?

  • Okay, I'm-- I'm gonna go to the stall.

  • [western showdown music plays]

  • Your move, girlfriend.

  • The headline's a little offensive, don't you think?

  • Don't you think you're being a little snowflakey?

  • It's un-PC.

  • And you could have used a better photo of me.

  • - There it is. - Okay, it's more about the headline.

  • - So did the move work? - What move?

  • Come on, you changed in front of Tripp.

  • You were testing him. Did the test yield any results?

  • Oh, yield any results? Like what exactly?

  • Like any... signs of excitement.

  • Oh, is somebody jealous?

  • No, I'm trying to gauge how ladylike

  • Tripp was in that moment.

  • Trans and gay are not the same thing,

  • and not all guys get a rager at the sight

  • of a Victoria's Secret label or, say, a girl in the shower.

  • At our age we do, okay? It's a hormonal thing.

  • Why, was it not that way between you and Will?

  • Oh. Ta-ta.

  • [drumline music plays]

  • Hey.

  • I meant to tell you the other day that I love your boots.

  • Thanks, they're vintage...

  • - Redwings. - Redwings, I know. So cool.

  • So I talked to Hook.

  • I thought you might. Um...

  • Look, he wants to use the Student Council snack bar

  • at the football games and... you know, him.

  • So let him volunteer.

  • Have him sign up on the list, and keep it there

  • to prove that he signed up himself.

  • I mean, you don't know what he's gonna do once he's inside.

  • I've been a watcher since I got here.

  • I know what goes on. So I have a pretty good idea

  • that Hook may do something illegal.

  • Exactly. You have an idea of what he may do,

  • but you don't know what he's going to do,

  • just like with any other volunteer.

  • - Plausible deniability. - I'm not a very good liar.

  • [laughs] We all are. It comes with the age.

  • I mean, it's how we get through the day.

  • I mean, I'm not comfortable with it.

  • Look, Grace,

  • I respect whatever code of ethics

  • you think you have, but the truth is,

  • without Hook's help, you would still be a watcher at this school.

  • I mean, no offense.

  • You may look the part,

  • but don't forget how you got here.

  • [all chattering]

  • This is ridiculous.

  • Okay, that's enough, everyone. Settle down.

  • Look, if this is a joke, it's been played out.

  • If it's a bet, you won.
