I made a big, OK, huge mistake, Dad.
I told you…
—I need you to get me.
To bail you out again?
Dad, I swear this is the last time.
Son, I told you to be responsible; you got yourself in, you can get yourself out.
Where are you?
Dad? Is that you?
I made bail. I made a big, OK colossal mistake.
And here I thought you told me to be responsible.
Let’s keep this whole bail thing between us, OK?
I won’t tell mom, but you owe be another bail if I need it.
