Andi Mack (2017) s03e11 Episode Script

In A Minyan

1 Previously on Andi Mack You have panic attacks? Since when? The first time at your Bar Mitzvah.
(BREATHING HEAVILY) I was the most scared I've ever been in my life.
We're friends.
Virtual couple? Sounds more like virtual nothing.
- Can we please meet up? - Sure.
We can do that.
- Mom.
- I have come to take you cake tasting, for the wedding.
I don't want to get sucked into a decision-making vortex for a super-fancy party that only you want.
I was only asking you to be polite.
Andi! BOTH: That one.
This might be where our relationship ends.
Now, I know neither one of us are big on compromise.
Just for the record, I was right about the cake.
And I was right about the dress.
And one of us doesn't appreciate gloating.
Too bad, because one of us is really good at it.
Also good at knowing when to stop.
Please continue.
Remember that Bex wants to keep it simple.
So for the color story, I was thinking ecru, eggshell, linen.
What do you think? Crazy idea but what if for the color story, we included a color? These are colors.
Sure.
But so is green.
Celadon.
Do you like it? I do, actually.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Ecru out! Celadon in! Wow, that was easy.
- What's next? - Flowers.
Oh, I already know what I want.
Me too.
Well, I feel very strongly about this one.
- We've got to go with hydrangeas.
- It has to be hydrangeas.
- (BOTH LAUGH) - I thought this would be much harder.
I thought this would be impossible.
All right.
Moving on to centerpieces then.
Oh! I got this.
I'm making them.
- You're making them? - Yeah.
Remember the lamp I made out of Bex's old CDs? Uh-huh.
Well, I'm making one for every table, and then we'll get those little battery packs so they're all lit up.
Unlike the expression on your face right now.
Oh, you weren't supposed to see that.
Obviously, you hate it.
I don't hate it.
I just don't want a bunch of 90s grunge CDs glued together to be the centerpieces of my daughter's wedding! I was thinking orchids.
All those in favor of orchids, raise your hand.
(LAUGHING) Me! (THEME SONG PLAYING) I'm standin' on the edge And everything I know-oh-oh is blown away Life is upside down But any way it goes I'll work it out Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Here we go - One, two, three - I'm ready for tomorrow Tomorrow starts today There ain't a map to follow But I'm with you all the way I'm ready for tomorrow - Tomorrow starts today - Hey There ain't a map to follow But I'm with you all the way Hey All the way (INAUDIBLE) The mirrors are covered.
Hey, why can't we look at ourselves? It's only for a couple hours.
You can make it, buddy.
Hey, guys, thanks for coming.
I'm so sorry about your Bubbe Rose.
She was so sweet.
Remember how she tried to teach us Yiddish? Oy gevalt, who could forget? (YIDDISH ACCENT): You vant a nosh? Have a shmear.
I wish I could have met her.
Hey, where is she? I want to pay my respects.
Um, well, we just buried her, so she's probably not coming.
She's not laid out somewhere? This is a shiva.
The only thing that gets laid out are the deli platters.
Shiva is about friends and family being together to comfort one another and share stories.
That sounds like a really nice thing to do when you've just lost someone.
It is.
Except it lasts seven days.
We take a long time to say goodbye.
Hi, I'm Bowie.
I know.
We met at the Bar Mitzvah.
Where's Bex? Oh, she's at work.
She'll come by later.
I'm sorry for your loss.
Thank you.
We all loved her very much.
I read that people bring food to a shiva, so I made a koo-gel.
Uh, kuggle? Kah-jel? This.
I, I made you this.
It's pronounced kugel.
And you shouldn't have.
You really shouldn't have.
- Where should I put it? - Oh, I'll take it.
Can I ask you a favor? Sure.
Would you mind entertaining Rose's Mahjong buddies? Right now, they're placing odds on who in the room is gonna die next.
Uh, sounds fun.
If you prefer, there's another a group over there playing "You Should Get That Looked At.
" I'll leave it up to you.
Hey, ladies! This is sitting shiva? Apparently.
Literally just sitting? (PHONE BUZZES) Sorry.
Excuse me.
Me too! Wow, somebody really wants to get in touch with you.
Yeah.
Who? One second.
- Sorry, what? - Who was that? (PHONE BUZZING) Who is that? Nobody! Is it Walker? No.
It's okay if it is.
I just said that it isn't.
(PHONE BUZZES) (EXHALES) I'll be right back.
(SIGHS) That is when she was crowned Miss Rockaway Beach.
- Nice.
- Third runner up.
- Third place is good.
- It's actually fourth place.
It goes winner, first runner-up, second runner-up, third runner-up.
Cyrus, I'm putting together a minyan for the Mourner's Kaddish.
Are you in? My first minyan! You need ten people who've been Bar Mitzvahed.
Rabbi Hurwitz, this is my friend Jonah.
Jonah? Like the prophet.
Please, join us.
You can pray, but you don't count.
And you don't get out of wearing one of these.
(ALL PRAYING IN ARAMAIC) (ALL CONTINUE PRAYING IN ARAMAIC) - ALL: Amen.
- Amen.
(EXHALES) I'm Aunt Ruthie.
Oh, I'm Andi, Cyrus' friend.
Girlfriend? Oh, no, just friend.
Oy, vey iz mir.
Why can't that boy get a girlfriend already? (CHUCKLES) Oh, have you met Aunt Ruthie? - No.
- This is my dad, Bowie.
- Hey.
- What is that? I made a kugel.
Who said you could make a kugel? Ah, it's an easy recipe.
Anyone can make it.
I don't see raisins.
Ruthie, you changed your recipe.
I made it.
Who said you can make a kugel? You didn't use raisins? This is so good.
The recipe said raisins were optional.
It's not a kugel without raisins.
Aunt Ruthie? Slow down! What's wrong? Bowie made a kugel.
It's a shanda.
I know, it's, it's delicious.
No, a shanda is a disgrace.
Wow, your family really likes raisins.
I wish Bubbe Rose had been here.
She loved a good kugel fight.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) To Bubbe Rose.
May her memory be a blessing.
I've heard that said so many times.
I can't believe I'm saying it about her.
I love you, Bubbe Rose.
Cyrus, don't worry.
She knows.
I know she knows.
But she didn't know everything.
CYRUS: I wish she had.
I wish I'd told her when I had the chance.
I was too afraid.
It is your choice who you tell and when, but you shouldn't be afraid to do it.
You underestimate how much people care about you, Cyrus.
You two made it easy, but how do I tell Jonah? You just tell him.
Any time you want.
You're right.
Do either of you know where he is? Wait.
You're going to tell him right now? At your grandmother's shiva? That's what Bubbe Rose would have wanted.
(PHONE BUZZING) Are you going to get that? Mmm nah.
Are you going to tell me who it is? Mmm nah.
Where is he? I mean, he wouldn't leave without saying good-bye.
Would he? (INAUDIBLE CHATTER) (JONAH BREATHES HEAVILY) CYRUS: Jonah? (JONAH PANTING) Jonah! (GASPING, PANTING) Hey, you're okay.
You know what this is.
It's a panic attack.
It will end.
- No.
- Yes, it will.
I'm here, I'm here.
- You'll get through this.
- JONAH: No.
Yeah, up here, up, up.
There you go, there you go.
That's better.
- Cyrus, I - Shhh! Don't talk.
Don't talk.
Thanks.
I know it feels like you're gonna die, but you won't.
(EXHALES) But if you did, we're all set up for shiva.
(LAUGHS) You're gonna love this hand cream.
See? It's the one I use.
- (CHUCKLES) Thanks, come again.
- Thank you.
(DOOR OPENS) You hate hand cream.
Yeah, but "it's the one I use" moves more product than, "hey, you wanna feel like you're wearing grease gloves all day?" Didn't you and Andi have a wedding committee meeting this morning? - Yes, we did.
- How'd it go? Very well.
We picked a color scheme, we agreed on flowers But simple, right? You're keeping it simple.
Oh, very simple.
In fact, for the centerpieces I was thinking just orchids.
Oh, I like orchids.
You don't have to arrange them.
You just have to set them down.
Sounds just like the wedding I refused to plan.
(CHUCKLES) Really? You're not just saying that? I'm saying thank you.
Aww! Andi was so cute at our meeting this morning.
She wanted to make centerpieces out of your glued-together CDs.
Oh, you mean those lamps? I love those! Me too, but can you imagine those as centerpieces? Yes! Would she do that? Instead of orchids? Absolutely! Lamps versus orchids, final score zillion to one.
Oh, hey, can I help you? Oh, you should talk to our hand cream expert.
(CHUCKLES) Hi! Oh, this is the one I use.
(CHUCKLES) Hey.
Thanks.
That was a really bad one.
But it's over now.
I don't think they're ever going to be over.
I mean, I haven't had a panic attack in a while, I even stopped worrying about them, and this one, it just came out of nowhere.
That can happen.
I just wish for once, someone would say something positive, even just, "They'll get easier.
" (SIGHS) But they won't, will they? They come and go.
That's what you have to remember.
They go.
When you're having one, you just have to keep telling yourself, "This will end.
" I wish you could always be there for them.
(CHUCKLES) Wouldn't that be fun for you? Sorry! That that was a horrible thing to say.
No! No.
It's one of the nicest things anyone's ever said to me.
I never knew how much I'd need a friend like you.
Why'd you even come looking for me? Uh I There was a reason.
I can't remember it now.
I'm suddenly starving.
Is there food? (SNICKERS) Is there food? I feel absolutely terrible.
Believe me, we feel worse.
Has anyone ever been kicked out of a shiva for bringing a kugel? In the long history of the Jewish people, I think this is a first.
I wish there was something I can do.
I want to make this right.
I don't think you can.
Can I at least try? Oy, here he comes.
(CLEARS THROAT) Can I have everyone's attention? I have a confession to make.
I did not make this kugel.
This is a store-bought kugel.
I knew it! I thought this was a victim-less crime and I didn't realize people would be hurt.
Aunt Ruthie, I just hope that someday, you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
I don't think so.
- Hey.
- Stand back.
I'm making a dramatic exit.
Well, I got to know what's going on.
Help yourselves.
If there's anything that you don't recognize, don't hesitate to ask.
I'm Cyrus Goodman, I'll be your buffet tour guide.
So? How did it go? Did you tell him? No, it wasn't the right time.
That's okay.
It'll happen.
You'll know when it's the right time.
JONAH: Cyrus, help.
I'm not recognizing anything here.
Okay, well, that of course is Aunt Ruthie's kugel.
Uh, that's your classic bagel and lox.
That's gefilte fish.
Skip that.
And I'm gay.
Yeah? Okay, cool.
Okay.
Cool.
(CHUCKLES) Ugh, this is awful! Dude, I told you to skip the gefilte fish! I didn't expect this to be the hard part.
(BOTH LAUGH) It's true.
Bubbe Rose would sneak cantaloupes into the movies.
How would she do that? You really want me to tell you? (BOTH CHUCKLE) You really miss her, don't you? She thought I was the greatest person in the world.
She believed in me, even when I didn't believe in me.
I wish CeCe believed in me.
What are you talking about? She's your biggest fan.
(SIGHS) Yeah, well, not today.
She doesn't want me to make the centerpieces for Bex's wedding.
Okay, so she's not perfect.
But you know what she is? Still here.
I'll be right back.
Are shivas usually this eventful? Well, the Goodman family does love drama.
You know the story behind every major Jewish holiday? "They tried to kill us, we survived, let's eat!" (SIGHS) About this morning.
I've been thinking I have too.
- I like orchids.
- Let's do the lamps.
Wait, I thought you hated the lamps.
You actually like orchids? Well, they seem a little over-confident for a flower.
It's too bad we can't ask Bex to choose.
Isn't it? She absolutely refuses to make any decisions.
So, what made you change your mind? I was just feeling like it would be wrong not to take advantage of your creativity.
You asked Bex.
I did.
Which means I was right again! But I know you feel bad, so I'm not gonna make it worse by gloating.
No, go ahead.
I would.
If you insist.
Three for three! (SINGING): Go, Andi.
Go, Andi There's people mourning in there.
(SIGHS) Yeah.
But I'm lucky.
I still have my Bubbe.
Wait, what did you just call me? (LAUGHS) (INDISTINCT CHATTER) Always surrounded by girls.
- She's cute, yeah.
- She wants to be a model.
Think you'll ever tell him how you felt? No.
Never.
On the other hand, I never thought we'd be friends.
I never thought he'd know who I was.
When it comes to Jonah Beck, so far I've been wrong about everything.
(CHUCKLES) Is that T.
J.
? You came.
Of course I came.
And I brought a challah.
You shouldn't "chave.
" (PHONE BUZZES) Who's texting you? We're all here.
Don't bother.
She won't tell you.
- Why not? - I don't know.
It's top secret.
Okay.
If you must know! It's Marty.
- What? - Who's Marty? - Marty from the party! - Marty f Well, that clears everything up.
So you're back in touch with Marty, huh? I called him.
(CATSKILL ACCENT): Nu? You called Marty? So? I missed him.
(CATSKILL ACCENT): Oh, she missed him.
As a friend.
(CATSKILL ACCENT): Whatever! ANDI: Next on Andi Mack - Oh - Hi, Bowie.
Hi, Bowie.
This is a surprise.
So, what're you doing here? - Oh, are these wedding invitations? - Yeah.
You know, this is my favorite part of the job? Getting to be part of this important moment when someone's life is gonna change forever.
BUFFY: See? They're a couple.
They're sharing a pretzel.
CYRUS: She is still not convinced.
BUFFY: How could you not be? Unless she knows something we don't.
