Hello, ladies.
Joey Lawrence and Antonio Banderas star in a film so wacky, the critics are already calling it this year's wacky film.
You know he only brought her to make you jealous.
Well, it's working.
Why don't you just tell him how you feel? What if I admit everything and he rejects me? Then you're exactly where you are now, knowing at least you tried.
Oh, my God.
This cake looks amazing.
Isn't that the cake you brought home for Theo? I'm just gonna sneak a bite.
I didn't have a chance to eat the whole night.
Oh, really? What were you doing? Burning off the calories I'm about to eat.
Well, make sure you smooth out the frosting so he can't tell.
Oh, I know how to do this.
Of all the firsts I've had this week, sneaking dessert from my 12-year-old isn't one of them.
You should see me on Halloween.
I can carry on a conversation about "Minecraft" without anyone realizing I have a mouthful of KitKat.
What other talents have you been hiding from me? Oof.
You okay? Sugar rush? Did you eat the rose? Oh, he's totally gonna know if you ate the rose.
Mom?! Katherine? Katherine, are you there? Can you hear me? Hello? Katherine! Mom? Mom! Mom, are you okay? - Mom? - Hello? Theo? - Who is this? - This is Greta.
I'm, uh I'm a friend of your mom's.
Is she okay? She fell.
Her head's bleeding.
What do I do? Listen to me.
When I say so, you're gonna hang up the phone, and you're gonna call 911.
You're gonna tell them where you are and that your mom needs an ambulance.
You know your address, right? - Yes.
- That's great.
You are gonna tell that to the dispatcher, and then and this is really important You are gonna ask them to stay on the phone with you until the ambulance gets to the house.
- Can you do that? - Yeah.

You're gonna ride with us.
Let's hustle.
Dispatch, this is 108.
We'll be arriving with an unaccompanied minor.
Please make Boston General ready.
Looking back, I don't know how honest Katherine and I ever were with each other.
I don't know how comfortable she ever felt telling me all the things she was feeling.
I don't even know if anything that Peter told me was true.
It's amazing how you can live a double life in your own marriage.
Hey, look, I really I I do appreciate you coming over here and being honest with me.
Of course.
Wow, honesty really does pay off.
Mm-hmm, it really does.
Maybe it doesn't.

But it's a good sign she's awake.
Just sit tight.
Your dad should be here soon.
The Moseley Fire burn patient is arriving! Third degree with possible airway involvement! She goes straight to the burn unit, and a crash cric kit goes with her.
Let's move! Dad! Mom fell.
I found her on the floor bleeding pretty bad.
I didn't know what to do.

How far away are we? Oh, GPS says four minutes.
Thanks again for driving, man.
Hey, open bar.

They like you enough already.
I'm not looking to be replaced.
Hey, babe, she's gonna be okay.
Yes, he is.
Okay, bye.
I know you're busy, but I am still waiting for an update on Katherine Kim, right.
I'm just waiting to hear from the attending.
Let me track her down.
Alright, because you didn't pick, we picked for you.
So you you got the classic milk chocolate.
Not a lot of bells and whistles, but certainly a crowd-pleaser.
And then there's this one.
It's sour and already opened because I ate some.
When do you think we're gonna get an update? Your dad said that he would text us as soon as he heard anything.
My pleasure.
Make sure and post the good one, huh? Okay, get well soon.
Hey, thanks again, Gary, for, uh, taking that.
No problem.
When we get stopped by insurance groupies later, you can return the favor.
Any news yet? No.
I just wish someone would tell me if Mom's okay.
Hey, it's Theo, right? Hi, Mr.
My friends call me Cam.
Hi, Cam.
My friends call me T.
Well, T, I just want you to know this is a really good hospital.
These doctors have taken care of me more than once.
Sometimes the puck doesn't always end up where it's supposed to.
I've got 28 teeth in my mouth.
Only 21 are original.
- Cool! - Yeah.
And, hey, you know, as scary as it is to not know what's going on with your mom, now you and I have time to hang out.
I know I, for one, cannot wait to tell my friends tomorrow that you and I got to play "Connect 4" together.
What do you say? You wanna play? - Yeah.
- Alright, come on.
Let's do it.
Okay, I'm gonna put it in here.
I'm closing it.
I-It's It's in there, right? Uh, no.
- What the - It's right here.
- What the? - Should I try it again, or Just when you think this guy can't get any better.
You must be so happy.
Yeah, he's pretty perfect.
You know, not only did he insist on paying us to cater, he's already given our names to three of his friends who have parties coming up next month.
And I was telling Rome that Valerie and I were actually talking about doing this on a larger scale, maybe starting a catering company.
Mm! Gina, that's great! Yeah, third time's a charm.
What was that? Nothing.
He didn't mean it.
He's just He's going through a lot right now.
The hell is going on? Did you talk to Maggie? What is it, a bake-off now? - What's happening? - Shh! It's very complicated.
And how about next time we leave the same party to go to the same hospital, you offer me a ride? Oh.
That's totally my bad.
Excuse me.
I-I'm looking for a patient Katherine Kim? Yeah, um, I was just about to bring him back to see her.
Are you immediate family? Um I'm sorry, you can't come back unless you're immediate family.
She is immediate family.
She's my sister.
He got the chin.
I got the hair.
We have an older brother with the most beautiful hands.
Follow me.
Give me one sec.
I know the doctor was in with her reviewing her EKG.
Let me see if they're done.
Thanks for doing that.
I'm I'm Greta.
I know exactly who you are.
I didn't realize Katherine She didn't.
Next time you make out with someone in a coat room, you might want to actually hide behind a coat.
Or don't be one of those weird creeps who likes to watch.
Good point.
DOCTOR: Hey, folks.
She's doing fine.
She's just a little banged up.
What happened? We believe she had what's called vasovagal syncope, which is basically when your blood pressure and your heart rate drop at the same time.
Your body just wants to get blood to your brain, so it tries to get you horizontal as fast as possible.
We want to run a few tests just to rule out anything else.
In the meantime, she had a pretty nasty cut on her head, which she's gotten stitches for.
But there aren't any signs of a concussion.
You can go in and see her now.
- Thank you, Doctor.
- Of course.
I'm gonna text Theo and everyone, let them know she's okay.
Why don't you go in first? Let her know how we know each other.
You know, when I said I always wanted you to fall for me, this is not what I meant.
Greta, what are you doing here? Well, I came to check on you.
You ended our phone call very abruptly.
I can't believe I passed out like that.
Um, listen, I love that you're here, but, uh, the nurse said they're getting Eddie He's right outside.
Does he know about us? He saw us making out in the coat closet.
Which, ironically, you just came out of.
He was cool about it.
In fact, he's the one who got me in.
If anyone asks, he's my brother.
Hopefully, no one asks.
I'm so glad you're okay.
You had me very worried.
Guys, you saw Eddie's text.
Katherine's fine.
It's late.
You should go home.
Yeah, and let you take all the credit? Heh, heh.
Nice try.
Nothing about tonight went the way I expected.
What do you mean? I mean, obviously Katherine, but what else? Well, you know, there there there was the surprise party, right? I mean, obviously, I knew about that, but Maggie did not.
You know, just certain things that not everyone knew, but now we all know them, so everything's fine, and we can just I'd say move on, you know? Sorry, guys.
It's just a sugar rush, man, you know? Sour Patches.
I'm sorry.
I just really wanted tonight to be perfect for you.
Well, it was.
What the hell is going on? What?! MAGGIE: What? Uh, y-you're never gonna believe this.
They are now saying gluten-free is bad for you.
Yeah, I heard that.
That's why I usually stick to Snickers.
Smart kid.
Wait, who's texting you that at 2:00 a.
? Rome.
Yeah, I read it on on Facebook.
You know? It's probably not even true.
Just Big Flour doing everything in its power to stay afloat.
What's crazy is, there are so many items you wouldn't think have gluten that have it.
- Like soy sauce.
- Wait, what? Yeah, and rotisserie chicken.
I'm starting to think I don't know what gluten is.
Oh, it's that thing in soy sauce and rotisserie chicken.
I think I'm gonna get something to drink.
You want anything, Joe Cool? I'm good.
Uh, I'll go with you.
Okay, let's go.
My treat.
Excuse me.
Lamoureux? Hey.
I-I'm so sorry to bother you, but my son is here having his appendix out, and he's such a huge fan.
He's He's literally just around the corner.
Would you mind coming to his room and saying a quick hello? Oh, uh, I'm actually Hey, Bruce Wayne.
You can't ignore the Bat Signal.
Go cheer up a sick kid, huh? We'll get you a Dr Pepper.
- You sure? - Yeah.
See you in a sec.
Let's do this.
- Alright.
- Alright.
He's had your poster on his wall since I am so sorry.
I really wanted to talk to you sooner.
I am so sorry I kissed you like that.
I mean, I'm not sorry I kissed you.
I'm just sorry it happened like that.
- What the hell was that? - I don't know.
I D Turning 30, and and hearing everything that you said to me in the elevator on the ride up about how my whole life has led to this moment and I need to s I need to show up for this moment, and I-I just I showed up.
No, what you did was kiss me at the $50,000 birthday party that your boyfriend threw for you.
You kissed me back.
Of course I kissed you back.
You know how long I've wanted to kiss you back? Look, I know it's not the best timing Not the best timing? What's your plan here? I-I don't know, but we'll We'll figure it out.
We won't "figure it out.
" That doesn't work.
You wanna know how I know that? Because that's what you said to me two years ago when you found the ring.
When you didn't know what your life was without cancer, I said we would figure it out together.
And you told me that That we couldn't do that.
So were you wrong then? No, you were right.
I didn't mean for the kiss to happen like that.
I just I got caught up in the moment.
Well, I c I can't risk that you're just caught up in the moment again.
Do you have any idea how hard it was to go into a pawn shop and sell the ring that I bought for the woman that I thought I was gonna spend the rest of my life with? It's taken everything in me to get to a place where I can be happy with us just being friends.
I can't go through that again.
I won't.
Oh, look.
Your boyfriend's back.
Hey, what's going on here? I was promised a soda.
Let's get you that soda.
So y-you might have a little scar, but I can tattoo right over it.
You've always wanted a face tattoo.
You told me so in high school.
And if you don't remember, well, you hit your head, so Ow.
Oh, it hurts to laugh.
Not looking.
Just want to grab my coat.
How are you feeling? Oh, like our family should have a wing of the hospital named after us after all the business we've given them.
You know, I'm gonna sneak out and let you get some rest.
Thanks for getting me in.
You're welcome.
Hope to see you again.
Not here.
And, uh, don't forget to call Mom.
Because he's my brother.
Please, I've been through enough tonight.
I'll call you when I get home.
So you're dating her and a married guy? Oh, stop.
I'm sorry I made an assumption earlier.
Uh, well, not your fault.
I didn't correct you.
Well, obviously, I have some questions, but for now, I am just glad you're okay.
Hey, Theo really wants to see you.
Does he know about me and Greta? No.
That's for you to share.
And I will.
Uh, when the time is right.
Hey, Katherine You know, rushing over here tonight, I can only imagine what you were feeling during my accident.
I really am glad you're okay.
I never thought we'd get a moment alone together.
Maggie, I-I'm really sorry.
For what? Well, hearing your speech tonight, I had no idea what this birthday was for you.
I should have listened to you when you said you didn't want to do anything big for it.
I thought you were just trying not to be high-maintenance, which, obviously, you are.
Hey, y-you don't need to apologize.
I should have told you, and I didn't 'cause I didn't know if you would understand.
Honestly, it's silly.
It's not silly.
Look, I may not always understand everything you're going through, but I don't want you to be afraid to share it with me.
'Cause every time I learn something new about you, it just makes me love you even more.
Hey, Gary.
Can't believe you're here.
I'm so sorry, man.
You You just missed her.
Missed who? Wait, what are you doing here? Um, a friend of mine just got rushed to the hospital.
She's okay.
Just waiting to see her.
What are you doing here? Gail just passed away.
What? No.
No, that that that That can't be right.
I-I just saw you a few hours ago.
I thought she was doing better.
I thought so, too.
Uh, I-I came here for visiting hours tonight, and and And one minute, she's forcing Hector and me to watch "Casablanca," and then the next minute, she's having trouble breathing.
I She passed away an hour ago.
I was just here helping Hector make some arrangements.
I'm so sorry, man.
Me, too, man.
I-I-It all happened so fast.
I really thought she had more time.
Kev, I-I'm sorry, but I-I gotta go, okay? Yeah.
Where you guys going? Where have you been? Katherine's being discharged.
Theo and Eddie went to get the car to bring it around to take her home.
And we're about to head out.
We thought you left.
Where's Maggie? Uh, she left about five minutes ago with Cam.
Uh Okay, sounds like everything worked out.
I'm gonna go.
Don't you need a ride? Nah, nah.
I'm just gonna walk.
Thank you for everything today.
I really appreciate you being there for me.
Of course.
And I'm just a phone call away if you need anything.
Okay, good night.
Good night.
Is she okay? Yeah.
Listen I am sorry that our plans got messed up, and I'm sorry that you had to spend most of your night waiting while I took care of my ex-wife.
Well, if this is how you treat a woman you're not married to anymore But things are definitely over between you two, right? Definitely.
It's late.
I should let you get some sleep.
I just wanted to make sure our date ended properly.
I kind of wish it didn't have to end.
But the thing is, I haven't actually been with anyone since Peter, and I'm not sure how much I want to have happen.
How about I just follow your lead? Okay.
Hey, Rome? Never mind.
What is it? No, it's it's just Earlier, when I told you I wanted to open another restaurant, you said "The third time's a charm.
" And I Oh, babe I'm sorry.
I said it without thinking.
I didn't mean it.
I know.
And I know part of it's probably me being over-sensitive.
No, you're not.
I'm sorry.
I did the same thing with Tyrell earlier.
It's the depression.
I'm just not myself.
I get it.
You're going through a lot.
But, babe, you're not the only one going through your depression.
I know you're doing everything you can, and I accept your apology, but I need you to realize that it's hard on all of us, because we're going through it, too.
You're right.
And I am sorry.
Thank you.
Gina, I need you to know this You are still the most amazing person I've ever met.
And I believe in you completely.
What are you still doing up? I just wanted to check on you.
Oh, that's sweet.
I'm okay.
Maybe I'll lie in bed next to you for a minute, just to make sure.
Hop in.
What's that? Oh, this is a It's a heart monitor.
They want me to wear it for the next 24 hours just to make sure everything's okay.
Must have been really scary to find me like that.
Yeah, it was.
But Greta told me what to do.
She's really nice.
Who is she? I've never met her before.
She said she was one of your friends.
Actually, T, um, Greta is Do you think something like this is gonna happen again? Possibly, but, um, you know, they checked my heart a bunch tonight, and it's very strong.
You know, the only thing dangerous about me fainting the way that I did is if I hit my head.
But they told me how to look for signs when I feel faint so I can lie down before I have a chance to fall.
Is it okay if I sleep in here tonight? Of course.
Come on.
Get cozy.
Aw, pal.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry for making you wait.
Let's get you outside before my living room gets the moat I never wanted.
Come on.
I shouldn't have kissed you in the elevator.
I should have waited until I broke up with Cam, which I just did.
And it's not because I turned 30.
It's not because I got caught up in the moment.
It's because
