Rue: Fezco liked that she
didn't treat him like a kid.

All right, today we're gonna
learn about weight and volume.

Rue: He went to school,

and when he paid
attention, he did well.

There's 28.5 grams in an ounce.

- Teacher: How many ounces in a pound?
- Young Fezco: Sixteen.

Rue: Especially in math.

And then one day, he
came home from school.

("Jump Into The Fire"

Grandma: Fuckin'

Rue: He didn't know
who the baby was.

he decided it was better
not to ask questions.

mother gave him to me as collateral.

He's ours till 10 PM.

Hey, can I get the, uh, pop off?

- Call me when his mama gets here.

Rue: The baby was really
cute, but no matter what he did,

he couldn't get
him to stop crying.

He probably just missed his mom.

(baby shrieks)

("Think" by Curtis
Mayfield playing)

Rue: She never came
back to pick him up.

Grandma: My nephew,
your uncle, Carl,

he ends up eatin' so
much fuckin' McDonald's,

he gives himself
diabetes, right?

Next thing you know, they're
chopping off his fuckin' feet, right?

Three years later,

Do I call the fuckin'

"Oh, you gotta fuckin' arrest

- Grandma: No, I don't fuckin' call.

'Cause it's fuckin'
Uncle Carl's fault.

Muthafucka! Piece of shit!

Rue: That was
his first dark spot.

He didn't really remember
anything for at least two months.

Just an occasional image,
and an overwhelming fear

about who was gonna
take care of Ashtray.

Grandma: I don't feel too
good. I'm gonna go lie down.

Rue: He never really
blamed his grandma.

She never really
apologized for it.

(slow funk music playing)

But he knew she felt bad.


He found this grandma
on the floor of the bathroom.

Fez didn't wanna call
911 for obvious reasons,

so he decided to drive her car
to the hospital, which took forever.

It was definitely a mistake.
The doctor even said it.

- Is she going to be okay?
- Doctor: Every second counts.

Rue: The next thing he knew...

he had a business to run.

And a little brother
to take care of.

♪ Yeah ♪

And however hard
he thought life was...

it got harder and
more complicated.

'Cause the more you
move up in the world,

He wondered how his grandma
would deal with someone like Nate.

But he didn't have his grandma.

Look at him over there!

Rue: Just Ash.

Hello, heart...
Thought I lost ya.


Jesus fuckin' Christ.

I'm not sure it's a
good thing we met.

Rue: What are you talkin' about?

You're my new favorite person.

- (both chuckling)
- Rue: Ah shit.

Ooh, thought I was gonna
die for a second there.


Could you imagine just
finding me dead? Oh man!

(electronic dance music playing)

- Thanks.
- Yeah.

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

(phone ringing)

So, did you, like,
have a good Christmas,

or are you Jewish or somethin'?

Yeah, well, my mom's Jewish,

but she always says if
the Christians can steal

Christmas from the Pagans,
then the Jews can also.

You say the Christians
stole Christmas?

Well, in order to convert
the Germanic Pagans

who, like, celebrated
winter solstice and stuff,

the Christians were like, "Fuck it.
Let's just say Jesus was born this day,

and you can hang
tinsel and stuff."

How you just go and
change the man's birthday?

Well, in the same way
King James was rewriting

the Bible on one
side of the castle,

and had witches tryna turn
his pee into gold on the other.

Yo, how the fuck do
you know all of this?

I don't know, by reading.

Do you, like, not
believe in God?

Damn, Lexi... you
fuckin' fearless.


Do you believe in God?

Hell yeah, I believe in God.

Like, there's a man
sitting in the clouds...

judging all of your
actions and stuff.

Hell yeah.

- Can I ask you a personal question?
- What's up?

How do you justify
dealing drugs then?

Well, I mean, my
Uncle Carl got diabetes

from eatin' too much McDonald's.

You don't see nobody
goin' after they ass.

Yeah, but if I were
God, I don't know

if I'd let McDonald's
CEO in Heaven.

I'd be like, "Fuck that guy."

Yeah, that's a good point.

I have to get back
to you on that one.

(indistinct chatter)

- Did you find her?
- Jules: No.

Well, if you found her,
we wouldn't be hangin' out.

Oh, yeah. It's, probably, true.

I'm sorry.

When we first
started hanging out,

I thought we'd be pretty close,

but... guess not. (chuckles)

I know. That's my
fault. I'm sorry...

No, I didn't mean it like
that. I didn't even mean it.

No, but, I mean,
it's true, like...

my world got too small,

and... it didn't feel good.

It's okay.
