- REGINA: Oh, well - Sir.
- Thank you, my liege - in 2011, when the Bruins went to the Stanley Cup, - Jon got the guys tickets to Game 7.
- Yes.
The Bruins were playing MAGGIE: Canucks, Vancouver.
It was a shutout.

So, Jon, he gets us the tickets to the playoffs.

It was a perfect trip, and nothing went wrong.

[LAUGHTER] Oh! Last, but not least, we have Maggie.
- Me? - You're gonna get a thing.
Why? I didn't even know Jon.
After everything this year, don't you feel like you do? Which is why we want to give you one of his most cherished possessions.
Please be the house.
Please be the house.
A signed album from Colin Hay.
Are you serious? Ohh! I love Men at Work! Come on! I love Men at W How come I didn't get that? Uh, because you never work.
[LAUGHTER] Thanks for helping me.
You shouldn't be lifting.
We're headed out, so We got to go test-drive cars, 'cause my lease is up.
Car dealerships are the worst.
Aww, yeah.
I have to go to my doctor to find out if my cancer's gone.
Oh, and then I have to go home to tell Theo that his mom and dad are getting a divorce.
Yeah, but good luck at the dealership, man.
We're all pulling for you.
- [LAUGHTER] - ROME: Ha ha.
SOPHIE: Hey, can somebody come help us with these boxes? D, I am so excited to be in the room with you and you.
I decided that I'm going to be near your shoulders, though.
All right.
Babe, are you ready? Baiser.
Mwah! See you soon.
- Hmm.
- REGINA: See you later.
I only asked Gina to be in the delivery room - because I c - No.
I Hey, Regina is the perfect choice.
[DOOR CLOSES] I am here Whatever you need.
SOPHIE: Hey, Mom, come quick! What is it? I was showing Gary the photo of that woman who came by the house.
He knows her.
GARY: She's younger in that photo.
But that's Barbara Morgan.
D, that's her.
She lives at the address that Jon has for Barbara Morgan.
Why else would that woman come into your house and then leave? - Why would she lie about who she is? - I don't know.
Well, let's go over there and get some answers.
I don't want to go over there.
- Fine.
I'll go.
- No, I don't I don't want you to go over there.
I need to move on.
I need to get ready for this baby.
Don't you want to know the truth? I don't know if I do.
Nothing I'm gonna find out is gonna bring Jon back.
[FOOTSTEPS DEPARTING] No, I'm happy to test-drive.
But you should get what you want.
And you don't just want to get another Tesla? No.
It's a lot of money, and I think that we should be practical.
Between your restaurant and my writing, I think we need to scale back.
I guess you're right.
We should be asking ourselves where we're gonna be in the next three years.
Yeah, or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
[LAUGHS] Mmm! But we can at least test-drive, right? Excuse me, sir! You know, Mom maybe we should go find her.
[SIGHS] It's just that one day, my little brother or sister is Is gonna come to me and say "What happened to Dad? Why did he do this?" And I would like to have an answer.
I just I feel like every time we go searching for answers, all we get are more questions.
And right now, I I can't I can't handle any more questions.
It's okay, Mom.
[SIGHS LIGHTLY] You ready? Everything I've done for the past eight years has been about protecting him.
I know.
But here's what we're gonna do.
We are gonna go in there together, we are gonna support each other, and we're gonna show him the best version of us.
- But, Eddie.
- Yeah? That's just it.
This is the best version of us.
W-What are you saying? The last time you were here, when we were signing the papers, we were talking about everything.
We were finally acknowledging what we had done to each other.
If Theo hadn't come down that night, you were gonna kiss me.
And I haven't stopped thinking about that since you left.
How can we not try to save this? How c W-What are we doing? I mean we're divorced.
No, we're not.
Uh, w No, we signed the papers.
I didn't file them.
Y Why didn't you tell me? I, uh [CLEARS THROAT] I was afraid.
I was afraid to want something that you didn't want.
Are you kidding me? [CHUCKLES] Every time I drop Theo off, every time I see you, every time I walk out that door, I think, "Where are you going?" "You're home.
" So come home.
[RAPID BEEPING] - Oh, my God! - [GRUNTS] I totally forgot.
Uh [COUGHS] What's going on in there?! Um, [LAUGHS] I It's just the - [BEEPING STOPS] - grilled cheese.
I can I can make you another.
[LAUGHS] Come home for dinner.
I promise I won't burn it.
[LAUGHS] But what What are we gonna tell him? I don't know.
We will figure it out together.
Theo has a playdate, I have work.
So be here for dinner at 6:00? I'll be here at 6:00.

Look at me, Bloom.
I'm gonna love you forever.
No matter how long our forever is.
Hello, you two.
So, Maggie I'm gonna make this quick.
Your margins came back clear.
You're in remission.
[VOICE BREAKING] Oh, thank God.
Why are you [CHUCKLES] Why are we laughing? [SNIFFLES] - [SIGHS DEEPLY] - Ohhhhh.
[LAUGHING] I'm sorry.
What are you d Why are w [LAUGHS] I don't [LAUGHS] Oh, God.
Now, if you validate parking, Doc, then you would make this a perfect day.
[LAUGHTER] Uh, we don't validate.
- [ENGINE REVS] - Aaaah! [LAUGHS] [LAUGHING] Oh, my God, that was incredible.
If I had hair, it'd be everywhere right now.
[LAUGHS] - [IGNITION CHIMES] - [SIGHS] Whoo! [SIGHS] [CAR DOOR CLOSES] I think you should get it.
I think we should be practical.
Babe, the restaurant is doing great.
And you have worked so hard.
Your script is fantastic.
It's pretty great.
Let's bet on us.
I want you to have everything you want.
You know, maybe if we can negotiate a really good price.
Oh, I can negotiate anything.
[LAUGHS] Yeah? You've seen me at the farmer's market.
I haven't paid for basil since 2010.
SALESMAN: You two, uh, made a decision? Well depends on you.
[CHUCKLING] I'll be out here.
[SINGSONG VOICE] Ta-daaa! Pay no attention to the extra pieces-aaaaa! [LAUGHS] [GASPS] Wait.
What do we have here? Oh, boy.
Maggie Bloom's yearbook.
There you are playing field hockey.
Which one of those boxes is this kilt in? Huh? There you are.
- [PAGE RUSTLES] - And there you are.
There you are in the cafeteria.
How did you manage to make it into all of these Oh, and she was on the yearbook committee.
I've always thought that was was a conflict of interest, no? [SNIFFLES] - Hey.
What's going on over there? [EXHALES SHARPLY] I packed my entire life into these boxes so that someone else wouldn't have to.
[CHUCKLES LIGHTLY] I just never thought I'd be the one to unpack them.
Well, you are.
I love you, Gary Mendez.
[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH] [DOORBELL BUZZES] [LOCK CLICKS] Can I help you? I'm looking for Barbara Morgan.
[SIGHS] There's nobody here by that name.
I I really need to talk to her.
She doesn't live here.
My name is Delilah Dixon, and I think she may know things about my husband.
Look, your friends have come by.
I'm sorry.
I don't know what to tell you, but I don't know who that is.
Barbara, please! You need to leave.
Let her in.
Look, I know you don't want me here, and I'm n I'm not even sure I want to be here.
It's just I don't know how you knew my husband.
And for the longest time, I didn't want to know.
But now, I I just need to know.
Well, she doesn't have anything to tell you.
Then why did you come into my house? Well, sh She's pregnant, Mitch.
Just like I was.
You need to go.
Were you two together? D-Did you have I dated his roommate Dave.
Patrick is gonna be home in 20 minutes.
She better not still be here.
So what are you gonna do? I'm gonna fight for my marriage.
That's beautiful, man.
All I want is for you to be happy.
I hope you believe that.
If you're telling me that you and Katherine have a chance to make that happen And this time, without any lies.
And if you want my opinion, I think it's a very good decision.
Unlike you routing us through O'Hare.
[AIRPLANE ENGINE ROARS] How could you fly us through O'Hare, Ed? Everybody knows it is the worst airport for weather delays.
Apparently, not everyone.
It's June! There's no snow! Wind! Fog! Rain! Lightning! O'Hare's got everything but on-time departures.
It's literally the perfect storm! - Gary.
- What? We're gonna miss Game 7 of the Stanley Cup so that he could save How much was it again? $20.
That's much how it costs for a cup of coffee at O'Hare.
You know what? Come on.
I got this.
Dave and Jon met their first day at Harvard.
They were like brothers.
Jon treated his friends like family.
[SIGHS HEAVILY] Jon had a real estate conference to go to, and he had convinced Dave to tag along.
He had a way of making everything fun.
GARY: Come on, Jon.
Blackhawks? It's not even the right team.
Gentlemen, it looks like we are not gonna make it to Game 7.
So we are going to be Game 7.
[SQUEAKING] I call Bruins.
He's good.
Come on, Eddie.
Bring us home.
: Attention.
Please check the board, as flights are now departing.
- What? - Wha? Oh, oh! Airport's open.
Our flight leaves in 20 minutes.
Oh, let's go! Let's go! We can still make the game! - EDDIE: And we saved $20.
- Are you kidding me? [INDISTINCT TALKING] I need to show you something.
Jon mailed this to me the day he died.
DELILAH: Oh, my God The memory card.
He did leave a message.
Barbara, I know I don't have the right to ask you to forgive me.
But for me to move on, I After everything that happened, I just couldn't look back.
As you said to me, part of being ready for the future is letting go of the past.
Yeah, don't worry.
I'm coming, okay? I'm telling you, you're gonna want a bottle of wine when we get there.
Well, just don't let the flight take off without me.
[REGISTER PRINTING] You know what? Keep it.
Thank you.
Excuse me.
[PANTING] Hey! Wait! Hold the door! That's my plane.
FLIGHT ATTENDANT: I'm sorry, sir.
We've already closed the jet bridge.
Here's the head count.
No, don't Give that back to her.
Just add one.
I have to get on the plane.
Once the jet bridge door is closed, I can't open it.
I understand you're just doing your job.
Okay? I'm asking you, please, just Just open the door.
I'm sorry, sir.
[SIGHS] I don't think you are, by the way.
Look out your window.
Yeah, you're right.
I missed it.
All right.
Well, a-at least I have a drink while I'm waiting.
Uh, I'll have to catch the next flight, I guess.
Sorry, Dave.
I'll see you in Los Angeles.
[CHUCKLES] JON: Had I known that would be the last time I spoke to him, there's so much more I would have said.
Jon was supposed to be on that flight.
Flight 11.
He never told me that.
I I never knew.
The last time I saw Jon was a few months after the funeral.
He wanted us to meet at Logan at the gate.
It was March 12th Dave's birthday.
As much as Jon wouldn't let himself move past it, I had to.
I was pregnant.
I met a first responder A firefighter.
Jon just thought it was too soon.
You're engaged?! Yeah.
To who? The The The firefighter? I can't do this alone, Jon.
Mitch said he would do it with me.
Oh, and that's how you remember Dave? You don't get to tell me how to mourn, Jon.
The truth is I will never forgive myself for what I said to you that day.
You still have this?! Barbara, he wouldn't have been on the plane if it wasn't for me! Jon, none of this is gonna bring Dave back.
But it's better than just pretending he never existed in the first place.
That day at the airport, when you told me to find something to live for I did.
Here you go.
- Thank you.
- Sure.
Did your flight get delayed, too? Something like that.
Where are you headed? [VOICE BREAKING] I was supposed to go to L.
Delilah was the love of my life.
[VOICE BREAKING] For 17 years, she's given me more than she'll ever know.
But I just couldn't tell her.
As long as I could, I just pushed the pain away.
For 17 years.
You let him live.
Until he couldn't do it anymore.
[SNIFFLES] Why didn't Mitch want you to tell me any of this? [SIGHS] Your son doesn't know what happened to his father.
Mitch is his father.
Patrick's home.
She needs to leave.
Thank you for this.
What are you doing? Huh? Fuel up my truck? Huh? - You hungry? - Yeah.
Let me cook you an egg.
Come on, sit down.
[SIGHS] Relax.
So that's why he said in the letter that he was broken long before he met me.
Okay, but why couldn't he tell us? Probably the same reason he didn't talk to Barbara all those years.
The guilt was too much.
So he just focused on us.
He kept trying to save us The way he couldn't save Dave.
You were right.
I thought if I knew everything, if we turned over the stone that explained everything, I'd feel better.
I don't.
You probably won't.
'Cause there is no one answer.
His financial debt, what happened with Dave there's no one reason why he did what he did.
Everyone responds to tragedy in different ways.
But it's never just one stone.
It's a bunch of stones stacked up on top of each other.
HUNTER: It's gonna be a late night.
Be back here in five, guys.
Let's order dinner.
Hey, Katherine, can I talk to you for a second? Look, I just wanted to clear the air.
I just don't want it to be awkward 'cause I made partner.
I was just hoping the two of us could be professional about all this, because I'm I'm really concerned it's starting to affect your work.
Well while we're clearing the air, Hunter, I should tell you that the only reason you made partner is because I turned it down.
[LAUGHS] That's right.
You were their second choice.
Maybe their third.
I don't know how many people they went to between me and you.
The reason why I turned it down is because I told the firm that from now on, I'm gonna be home for dinner with my family.
Which is where I'm going now.
So good luck with the appeal.
I'm glad we cleared the air.
SALESMAN: They're just washing it now.
It's gonna take about 45 minutes to prep your new sports car.
With the the alloys, extra set of floor mats, and a key chain.
I talked to my manager.
Thank you.
[CHUCKLES] All right, Gina.
That was pretty amazing.
Another 10 minutes, he'd probably thrown in one of these for free.
Oh, but then he'd have to talk to his manager.
I know that move.
[LAUGHS] Excuse me, Rome.
Can you step into my office for a minute? [GIGGLES] [CAR DOOR CLOSES] Babe, the only downside to your new car is, I'm gonna have to get a new wardrobe to go with it.
I assumed.
I'm going full "Breakfast at Tiffany's.
" [BOTH LAUGHING] - The head scarf, sunglasses.
- [BABBLES] Something from Tiffany's.
I mean, I want it to be authentic.
[CHUCKLES] I think we should get this car instead.
[LAUGHS] Sure.
Audrey Hepburn wouldn't be caught dead in this car.
[CHUCKLES] Are you serious? Rome, they're out there prepping your dream car right now.
I mean, I've got one for work, and I love it but, you know, this is the car people get when they're having kids in the next couple years.
I think we should get it.
What is happening? When I found that pregnancy stick in our bathroom, I thought you were pregnant.
I kind of liked it.
Wait, what are you talking about? When we got married, we said we weren't having kids.
When we said that, I thought having kids meant having a baby.
It does.
It's exactly what it means.
After stepping up this year for Sophie and Danny and helping the kid that read my script, it just made me realize that having a kid means raising a person.
I really want to raise a person with you.
JON: How do you say "umbrella"? Um "par-a-pluie.
" "Para-pluie.
" [LAUGHS] How do you say, uh, "bar napkin"? Mm "serviette de bar.
" "De Bar"? It's "bar"? "Serviette de bar.
" Okay.
Uh, how would you say "Will you go on a date with me?" Hmm.
[SMACKS LIPS] That would be Et si on dînait ensemble? Sure.
A little forward, but, yeah, let's do it.
[LAUGHS] Okay.
: Flight 44 to Paris is now boarding.
This is me.
This, uh, this was fun.
Yeah, thank you.
Um It's, uh, for French lessons.
[CHUCKLES] Don't forget that.
Bon voyage! [ECHOING] Where are you headed? [VOICE BREAKING] I was supposed to go to L.
[SIGHS] [INHALES SHARPLY] [GROANS] You know, the last time Jon and I saw each other, we got in a fight? He was mad at me for breaking up with this woman who was trying to leave a phone charger at my place.
Our place.
Our place.
I wish he could see all this.
And I wish I could say I'm sorry for the ugly things I said.
I wish I could thank him for getting me to today.
[VOICE BREAKING] I wish he was here.
I know.
He really did take care of all of us.
[GROANS] It's like D said.
He spent the rest of his life trying to make up for the fact that he couldn't save Dave.
Gary, you have to be sure you're not doing the same thing.
I love everything you've done for me.
But I do think that part of the reason you did it is because you feel like you couldn't save Jon.
I should have seen it.
I was his best friend.
All right, roomie.
Come on.
Grab your coat.
Are you telling me you never thought about having a kid? Of course I have.
But then I think of every other thing in our life and how it doesn't fit in with that.
Then we switch it around to make it fit.
Like what? Rome, I practically live at the restaurant.
I mean, who's gonna take care of this kid? Me.
I-I-I can stay home and write with the baby.
You bought noise-canceling headphones because you said I eat grapes too loudly.
I am never gonna live that down.
[SCOFFS] And And, babe I don't know that we can put anything else on our plate right now.
'Cause, honestly I'm still worried about you.
I know you are.
But maybe, Gina, having a baby might help put everything in perspective.
And what if it doesn't? And what happened to being practical? Do you have any idea how much raising a baby costs? How much? Exactly.
We don't even know.
Hey, D.
Everything okay? Oh, my God.
Yep, we're on our way.
You wanted a baby.
You got one.
- Are you serious? - Serious.
[COLIN HAY'S "I JUST DON'T THINK I'LL EVER GET OVER YOU" PLAYS] I know I don't have the right to ask you to forgive me.
I know how hard it'll be on everyone once I'm gone.
Even after all this I drink good coffee you're still my best friend.
Every morning Jon, you used to say that "Everything happens for a reason.
" Which I thought was ridiculous.
But I found that reason.
You would have loved her.
Maybe she's right.
There is less Maybe I tried to save her like To say [VOICE BREAKING] like I couldn't save you.
I don't want you thinking I wish I could have saved you.
I'm unhappy I'm sorry I didn't.
What is closer to the truth? I just want to say the one thing I never got to say.
102 I just don't think I'll ever Goodbye.
Get over you Go, B's.
[EXHALES SHARPLY] I can't help but think about all the moments I've missed and all the moments I'm going to miss.
It's too soon! I haven't even built the crib yet.
Oh! And I have to buy some formula! - Oh.
- [CAR DOOR OPENS] Delilah, how much is formula? Oh, so much more than you think.
I can't believe I'm not gonna be the baby.
Look at this face.
I was made to be the baby.
Okay, baby face, buckle up your mom, but not too tight.
Rome, GPS the hospital.
Soph, out of the driver's seat.
But this is a great opportunity for me TOGETHER: No! That if I lived till I could no longer climb Sometimes the only way we can make it through today is by forcing ourselves to forget yesterday.
I just don't think Mom? What are we doing for dinner? It's a It's a surprise.
[GROWLS] - [LAUGHS] - You hungry? - Yes.
- Okay.
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey It has your name on it.
Oooooh Yeah-eh-eh Name? Delilah Dixon.
But early It's too soon.
- Did your water break? - REGINA: Yes.
- Then you're having a baby today! - [GROANS] Maybe it was wrong not to tell anyone what happened.
But sometimes you keep a secret to protect the ones you love.
How funny would it be if this kid came out in one of Dad's suits, screaming into a Blackberry? [EXHALES SHARPLY] Hey, I know what you're thinking.
That he should be here.
But look at it this way.
In a few hours, we'll be a family of four again.
It's just, the more you try to push away the past, the more it haunts you.
[PATS DOUGH] Your face, it dances And it haunts me [CLATTER] Your laughter is still ringing in my ears [CELLPHONE BUZZES] Hey.
Where are you? I'm outside.
Can you come out here for a sec? Alone? Even after all these years Soph, where's my phone? I need to call Eddie and Gary.
D, I'll be right there.
You're gonna be great.
Text me photos.
- Waist up.
Okay? - [LAUGHING] Okay.
Hey, Gina.
This could be us.
I don't want to look back and say I didn't do something that I wanted to do.
I want to give you everything you want.
I do.
But I don't want this.
[FOOTSTEPS DEPARTING] And sometimes, as hard as it may be you tell them the truth.
The truth is, I left you Just when you needed me most.
I'm sorry, Barbara.
Yeah, if I lived BARBARA: PJ! Dinner! Coming.
102 I just don't think I'll ever What's going on? What is it? I want to come home.
There's nothing I want more.
But I promised you no more lies.
Heeeeeeeeey So there's something I need to tell you.
