Difficulty: 0

Bro, move!

Go! I'm not doing anything.

How ya doing, girl?

What'd you think about Turn-About Ranch?

It's not that I don't want to go.

It's that I'm not gonna go, period.

If we felt like you just getting in

with a therapist and working with mom and dad would work,

we would do that,

but the truth is-

Yeah, but I'm not gonna go to no Turn-About Ranch.

I'm not going.

Like, you cannot force me.

Well, the problem here is that you guys

need some separation.

I can go stay with a relative.

Honey, what we've done so far is not working.

All sending me away is gonna do is upset me,

and I'm not gonna do that.

I'm not getting sent away.


Then you'll like it.

Yes it is.

I'm not gonna like it-

I think you will.

I think you'll absolutely love it.

No! I'm not going, period!

I'm not gonna sit in this dumb-ass room

and sit here and be told that I'm gonna get sent away.

That's stupid.

Are you in agreement that this is

the course of action that you want to take,

for her to go to Turn-About-

They're not gonna change!

I'm not!

I'm not gonna do it.

Somebody get me out of here.

Honey, this is the best thing.

Get me the (beep) out of this (beep) room!

I'm not getting sent the (beep) away!

Get me out!

Just give me a second.

Get me out!

Get me out, get me out, get me out.

I'm not staying in here though.

Blah, blah, blah, blah,

I'm not staying here.

You better get me the (beep) out of this (beep) room, now.

I love you.

Michelle, we have two options.

No! I want to go home!

But obviously I (beep) can't do that, either.

The one time I really want to actually (beep) go home,

and you guys won't let me go home.

The one (beep) time.

You're not in control.


You don't have a choice

if parents decided that you're going to Turn-About.

I understand you're really upset,

and you feel kind of cornered right now.

And they're just gonna leave me.

They're just gonna go back to (beep) and leave me here.

If we could rely on you to not run away-

I haven't run away, but of course that's (beep)

not enough, so-

Well, honey, the thing-

No, nothing I ever (beep) do is good enough.


No, I don't care!

So I have to explain something to you

before you derail too far.

We are your temporary custodial guardians.

We're gonna take care of you and get you there safe.

Well, tell them to go (beep) and I hope they die.

That's gonna change how you go, Michelle,

and we're still going.

I don't care!


No way!

Can we just start walking then, hon?

No! Not until I get my damn food!

We believe that you're not getting what you need at home

and that with the right people,

there is really a limitless potential

to what you could accomplish with your life.


To go on and do what you want to do.

Atta girl.

(dramatic music)

I love you, and I'm doing this for us.

I know she's scared, but it's the right thing to do.
