Well, Abby's occupied, Gran's busy with Uncle Thomas, Connor is Connor, I've already talked with Bree to death on this, so Which makes me? The only one left.
Okay what do we do from here? I talk, you listen, and you respond with sage advice that is positive and appropriate.
Got it.
Okay, so it's gotten very complicated around here.
Isn't your life always kind of complicated? I'm sorry, go on.
So I have this friend, who didn't start as a friend, well he did and then he wasn't my friend, and then You know when see someone up close and then suddenly they just seem different? But it's complicated because he's my employee hypothetically.
Can we maybe just call this hypothetical person David, hypothetically? Stop! Okay, so David is great, but I mess up relationships, right? Right I think? So what do I do? I don't know.
That's it? I don't even really know what's going on with my life.
I'm not sure what's happening with Sarah.
I don't know if I can trust my own judgement.
I know all about that.
So what do I do with hypothetical David? Just don't kiss him.
Chicken parmesan.
What? I gotta make chicken parmesan.
Thank you thank you! Yes! Okay No, I get to be the Fairy Queen.
You were the Fairy Queen yesterday and the day before Mom? Okay how about I'm the Fairy Queen and you can both share being princesses.
Trace! How are you girls feeling? All better.
That's good.
Hey Abs.
Gimme some! Scary spider! So what're you up to? We're going to play in the Fairy Garden.

As much as I would love that, I have to work tonight.
Another time, okay? Okay.
All right, have fun.

Got some purchase orders here for your dad to sign off on.
Is he around? No, but he should be back in a few minutes.
So how're things going at the club? It's going great.
Leigh and John just left for Nashville.
John's picking up some studio gigs and Leigh's packing up her apartment, so You aren't listening.
Abby, what's going on with you? I don't know, I just We haven't seen each other in almost a week.
I know, it's just it's been a crazy trying to get the club off the ground and trying to write new material.
Trace, it seems like we keep having the same conversation.
It's my work and my family, your club and your music.
I can't be your groupie.
And I would never want you to be.
Abby, we can make this work.
Can we? It's gonna get better.
I promise.
But you know, if you make a promise to the Fairy Queen, you have to keep it.
Whatever you say, your highness.
Mom, the princesses are waiting! When are you coming? Mom? Still waiting! All right, the Fairy Queen needs to do some work.
See you later.
The miles are getting longer, it seems The closer I get to you So I'm going home, to the place where I belong Where your love has always been enough for me I'm not running from No, I think you got me all wrong I don't regret this life you chose for me I said these places and these faces are getting old So I'm going home I'm going home Morning.
Good morning.
How's work? Good! The key is efficiency, organization, perseverance And lack of sleep? Yes, I was up late last night catching up on work.
There's two tech companies both rolling out new platforms and I talked them into merging.
Wow, impressive.
Girls, your mother is very, very smart.
I wonder where she got it from? Oh sure now, it's a wonderful day! Girls, did you put your homework in your backpacks already? Yes.
Leaving early? Yeah, it's the first evaluation at the firm.
Well I'm very proud of you, they're lucky to have you.
Pretty soon you're gonna be running the place.
Running the place, huh? Yeah, we'll see about that.
All right girls, let's go brush your teeth.
I think Mimi's here to take you to school.
Dad, I'll be back down in a few minutes and we can start going over the proposal.
Okay, very good.
Hello! Hello.
What a beautiful day, huh? Hey.
Kevin's moving out.
Oh, wonderful! I agree.
Thanks and thank you, Connor.
Hey, what are brothers for? Yeah, I figured it's time.
I found a place on Birch and Alpine.
They told me they'd let me know.
Well in some cultures, children live with their parents until they get married and even then, some families still live together.
Maybe if I get married and have kids, I'll move back in.
Well, you are always welcome.
I'm going to town.
I'll go with you, Mom.
Oh good! Beautiful day, isn't it? Glorious! So, how are you and Sarah doing? Same.
Nothing new.
I can't imagine what this place is like at night.
It's beautiful! Maybe you and Dad should come by one night.
That goes behind the bar.
We'd love to.
Maybe the weekend? You know how your dad is, he doesn't like going out after work.
Dad's already back at the bank? He started back last week.
I thought he was supposed to take the rest of the month off? Your father seems to believe that the bank can't function without him.
He's a little bit like you.
Maybe could you talk to him? He's a grown man, he knows what he can handle.
Hey, can you make sure the paper towels are refilled? We ran out last night.
But I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for coming by.
- Bye.
- See you.
Boo! Oh god, I'm sorry.
Good book, huh? Good? No, it's it's perfect.
Simon Atwater.
Another romance novel, I hope? No, well, kind of.
It's got elements of romance.
It's about his family.
It's about everybody's family, really.
It's about the balance between what you learn at home and what you find out in the real world.
Well, except it's not about that at all, actually.
Sounds complicated.
It is and then again, it isn't.
It's just perfect.
Then why the face? Books, people.
They all have a last page and eventually you have to move on.
And the perfect ones are the hardest ones to leave.
So I just pick the ones that aren't quite right So that when you do get to that inevitable last page, it doesn't hurt as much, y'know? Hey Gran, call me back.
I forget, do you bread the chicken before or after you add the cheese? Call me back or come over.
Okay come over! What's going on? Nothing.
I'm just making dinner for tonight.
Not a big deal, just dinner.
I can cook! Okay I'm fine.
Can I help you? Yeah, I was coming to see if you got those cucumbers for the tea sandwiches.
I did, they're in the fridge.
You're making dinner for tonight at 11 AM? Yes.
Why are you making dinner? My brothers and sisters are coming over I hope.
[Smoke alarm beeping] You should come, if you want.
Okay! With my family here.
Sure, that sounds nice.
Uh, good luck.
Thank you.
Bree, it's me.
Dinner, my house, 7 o'clock.
You have to come.
Connor, it's Jess.
Free dinner, my house, 7 o'clock.
Please be here.
Page 232 details the procedural information.
Upon signing, the Fox Corporation will provide the initial start up capital to begin the permit process Dad, are you okay? Yeah, I'm just following along.
I know, but you haven't asked a single question in 20 minutes.
You know, I've always been very good at figuring things out, looking at all the possibilities.
But not this time.
You're worried about the forum? No matter how you look at it, if Thomas and I go up against each another in front of the whole town, it's not going to end well.
Are you worried you're gonna lose? No, I know I'm gonna win.
That's not what worries me.
It's what happens when I do.
And what's that? I'll lose Thomas.
Sir, is there something I can help you with? How do you like working here, Mr.
O'Brien? It's a great opportunity, sir.
Well done.
Answered a question without answering the question.
Well, I'm happy to report that we are extremely pleased with your performance over the past month.
Well thank you, sir.
The partners are impressed.
They see a future for you here.
Oh that's great news.
You know, you and I actually are quite alike.
Oh? I started here right after law school, too.
Oh get out of my head, I was thinking the exact same thing.
And just like you, 23 years ago when I set foot in these offices, I couldn't wait to go out there and take on the world.
Well, you've certainly done that.
And now, I'm full partner.
Hard work, loyalty, dedication.
Of course.
Well, I'm grateful to be here, Mr.
It's an honor to be a part of the Bennett, Beecham & Findlay family.
[Cell phone vibrating] Yellowstone Holdings is incredibly diversified, and picking them up will put assets in South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.
[Message ping] Okay, thank you.
- Yes, let me know.
- How you doing, Abby? Good.
I'm a little overwhelmed with my normal workload and the new administrative duties, but It comes with the vice-president title.
What's this? The New York office just heard from Matt Fox directly.
He's been swimming in bad publicity from the deal he's doing with your father.
Right well, I warned him about that.
You did, but he's decided that unless your father can get local support behind him, he's pulling out of the deal.
And he wants your father to have this.
Del, this is bad.
You know Matt Fox.
This isn't bad, it's just business.
He gazed into her eyes, instantly lost at sea.
His soul shipwrecked on a deserted island of broken dreams and love unrequited.
It's a firefighting training manual.
Wouldn't that require some sort of His love for her burned with the heat of a thousand suns.
Okay, we've got fire.
It's Always Caroline by Simon Atwater.
I figured if you meet an author, you should read his book.
Hybridized electron configurations of their valence shell atomic orbitals.
Yeah, it's Organic Chemistry by the faculty of NYU.
It's really good stuff.
Yeah, I'd probably get more work done at the library.
So, are you planning on staying in town if you go to med school? I don't know.
If I do get into Stanford, maybe Until then, I think I just really need to hunker down and start memorizing electron configurations.
Well, if you want a break from all that fun, this afternoon we're doing some training at the station.
Yeah, that could be good.
And I'm sure Jordan and the rest of the Navy boys will want the Army guy to take a stab at the course.
So, will I be humiliated? Yeah, the first time, everyone is.
These two have been holding hands all day.
Who does that? Eventually their fingers are going to get numb.
I mean, I guess it must be kind of amazing, being that in love.
Yeah, must be.
Yeah, must be.
Jess? Yes? I have to stay something.
You can say it.
I won't stop you.
Your chicken You gotta bake it at 445 for an hour on the bottom shelf, not the top shelf, because your oven runs five degrees too hot.
Thank you for letting me know.
I hope I wasn't too forward.
No, I think honesty is best.
- 445.
- Got it! My cookies.
I need to get to town.
- They're going to burn.
- I gotta go right now.
- Bye.
- Buh-bye.
Mom, thank you so much for helping me do inventory.
Of course.
Oh hey, you never told me.
What did Simon say when you told him you loved his book? Oh, I'm never contacting Simon ever again.
What? - You're kidding, right? - No.
Why not? Because it would never work out.
And even if it did work out, it still wouldn't work out.
- Bree - My psychiatrist calls it a classic case of abandonment issues.
Oh great, you're here.
As opposed to? I need you to come to my house tonight.
Or now, preferably now.
Okay, why? Because I'm making chicken parmesan.
And? Because I need to bond with my sister.
Because if I end up doing what I'm about to do, then I will mess everything up like I always do.
Wow, I'm gonna sit this one out.
Plus, you know what, I can't.
Why? Because I'm doing inventory.
And? Jess, you can do this.
You can do this.
Okay thank you.
Bye! We're providing not only short term construction jobs, but long term, sustainable work that'll provide everyone in Chesapeake Shores with a better life and a better livelihood.
My father built this town that we all love.
[Clapping] You're very good at this.
Well, I'm here for a week, two shows nightly.
Tell your friends.
So what brings you here? I have a delivery from Matt Fox.
It's a record of every trade off and compromise Uncle Thomas has ever made.
Taken completely out of context.
This will destroy his foundation.
It'll ruin him.
He wants me to use this against Thomas? Actually he insisted.
I don't need this.
I don't think Fox cares one way or the other.
He just wants Thomas out of the picture.
And now it's my job? How you doing? Since when do you eat carrot sticks? Talk to your mother.
I'm good.
So what brings you by? Mom told me you went back to work? I thought you were supposed to stay home for the rest of the month? It doesn't make much difference.
Work from home, work from the office.
And I'm not one for staying home.
I think Mom's concerned about your stress level.
Yeah, well she's the reason I went back to work.
I couldn't take another minute of her fussing over me.
If she brought me one more cup of herbal tea, I was going to scream.
You know I've always hated herbal tea? Dad, you had a heart attack.
It was a minor heart attack.
You know there's no such thing, right? Trace, for 40 years I've gotten up every morning, I've put on a suit and tie, and I've come to this place.
I run a bank: this is my life, it's who I am, it's what I do.
Taking time off isn't something us Rileys do well, is it? It's not in our DNA.
Which reminds me, I got a few things I gotta take care of at the club.
Yeah, and I'm late for an appointment.
See ya.
Hey Dad? If you're feeling up to it, come by the club one night.
Excuse me! May I have your attention please? After 40 years of dedicated service this firm, today, Vince Coates is retiring.
Please join me in a rousing round of applause of appreciation for all that he has done for this firm.
[Applause] Thank you.
[Whistle blowing] Go, go! I think this whole Army and Navy thing is getting out of hand.
Would it make you feel better if I told you, you beat him? And you just missed the course record by five seconds.
Really? Go Army.
You gotta give it a break, man.
Your record is safe.
Looked like you were having fun.
Yeah, I was.
So, who wants to go again? No.
I could go for a beer, though.
You in? Loser buys? Fine, but just remember, I hold the record.
That was pretty impressive.
Oh yeah? Yeah.
I think I saved that guy.
It's a manikin.
It still counts, right? Hey, what's up? I just had to drop something off in town.
I just went by the bank to check on my father.
Apparently he's decided to go back to work.
Really? That was fast.
The Rileys don't know what to do with themselves if they're not working.
That sounds like the O'Briens.
Is everything okay? This thing with my dad and my uncle is getting really complicated.
That's a shame, but it's not your job to fix it.
I know, but it is hard not to try.
It's really good to see you.
You too.
Hey did you want to grab a coffee? I wish I could, but I really need to get back to the club.
Okay well, I have a lot to do, too.
I'll see you later? Cheers to the best study break ever.
Cheers! And this is for you almost knocking off Jordan's best time.
Just don't get any faster.
I won't.
I know you'll be a great doctor, but you'd also be a great firefighter.
Or paramedic.
Wow, thank you.
Thank you for this.
You know maybe we should do this again sometime soon? Yeah.
Excuse me.
Abby, you gonna join us? I'll be there in just a minute.
Well you're missing quite a story.
The fairy pirate Daphne is about to marry Liam, and their cousin Patty, she's going to get to go buy a new dress! All right, Daphne, Liam and Patty, I've got it.
So why don't you take a break and come join us? I wish I could, but I have to finish this up before I head over to the forum.
Abby no matter how important the real world seems, you gotta be remembering who you're doing this for.
Mom, the wedding! We're waiting! All right girls, it's fairy time.
Let's see this wedding.
So how was your day? It was good, then bad.
How about you? Same-ish.
Good and then bad-ish.
You ever wonder why we do what we do? Like why did I go into the army and why did I drop out of med school just to re-apply four years later? And why did I become a lawyer? I thought you always wanted to be a lawyer.
Well, I always loved the law.
Arguing a side, defending a position.
But being a real lawyer is It's not like on TV? Exactly.
How did we get here, bro? I have no idea.
Hey you're dropping stuff that way.
You see right here? Classic! You hungry? I'll buy you dinner.
No Mom, I gotta get home.
I gotta keep working on all this inventory stuff.
I just thought we could talk.
Today just isn't the best day for it.
Bree, you can't keep pushing people away because of what happened with me.
- I don't do that.
- Oh yes you do! Don't shut yourself off, honey.
Give people a chance.
Okay, thanks Mom.
We have to talk about what happened I don't want to talk about what happened! I don't want to.
I can barely handle the present.
I'm not ready to hear about the past.
Not right now.
You can't replace what's gone, and regardless of the financial benefits of the O'Brien Trust, the long term effects will be permanent.
I love what you've done to the place.
I'm not quite done decorating.
Well, it's a good start.
What do you want, Mick? I want to talk to you.
Let's pull up the graphic of the O'Brien Trust.
So, you working everything out? Getting used to the acoustics, sightlines? Pop taught us to be prepared.
I thought that was the Boy Scouts? Them too.
And to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
We can't do this, Thomas.
We can't stand up in front of the entire town and argue about the property.
People have a right to know what you plan on doing with that land.
Yes, they do.
And they have a right to hear both sides.
But not here and not in this way.
You're afraid you'll lose.
No, I'm not.
The forum is rigged.
Give me a minute, Bobby.
This is all half-truths and garbage.
And it would ruin me.
Yes it would.
So what now, you going to use this? I was thinking of buying you a beer.
Now? What about the forum? Like I said, this isn't the time or the place.
Beer, huh? They might be mad at both of us for this.
Yeah, they might.
This doesn't mean it's over.
I figured as much.
- I'm not stopping! - No, not you.
What's up Megan? I tried to talk to Bree.
She shut me out, wouldn't even go there.
I'm so sorry.
But you know, sometimes people just well, maybe Bree just wasn't ready.
Maybe she's just too much like me.
Well you know darling, if she's having trouble dealing with the past, a lot of people do, then she's gonna have difficulty bringing it into the present.
But I have to help this family heal.
All of us.
If they're having trouble in the present, why don't you concentrate on that? The past can wait, it's not going anywhere.
That's for sure.
Where is everyone? They're not coming, and I hate them.
Well, it's kind of nice it's just us.
It's like we're in a real Italian restaurant.
It is? Yeah, except next time you make chicken parmesan, remember you gotta take it out of the plastic.
We don't have to do this, they're not coming, so we don't have to eat together, which is good.
Are you kidding me? You're gonna love it.
Do you guys know why Mom has to see us? No, I have no idea.
I hope it doesn't take too long.
I gotta wake up early, take the MCATs.
Oh thank goodness, no more science questions.
First annual S'mores eating contest anyone? Love it.
I love this chocolate.
I'll catch up with you guys later, all right? Hey, evening everyone.
This one's for my family.
Thanks for coming by.
[Applause] As I wake up to the morning sun And gaze out on the sea I can't help thinking about what could've been And what is meant for me Will my heart ever be free again Just like this summer breeze And can the tides wash me clean again So my soul can sing with ease As time passes by we try to hold on tighter We dream of the days when our hearts were much lighter Should I keep running from the past Or let it catch up to me Does that mean it's all we'll ever be They say you can never come home And time and distance heal the pain But if home is where the heart is Then maybe they're the ones who've changed As time passes by we try to hold on tighter We dream of the days when our hearts were much lighter Can you forgive again For what I did back then I pray that you will let me in So we can begin again [Applause] Thanks.
I got your reports, Abby.
Del, I'm actually gonna do the commentaries tomorrow.
I have some errands to run.
I'll see you tomorrow then.
Sir, could I speak to you for a minute? Hey, congratulations on passing the New York Bar.
That's impressive.
Wow, news travels fast.
Thank you.
Thank you for believing in me.
Like I said, you're Bennett, Beecham & Findlay material.
You belong here.
I'm glad that you think that, sir.
You're part of the family now.
Listen sir, I need to be straight with you.
I've done a lot of soul searching and I can't I can't work here anymore.
I'm not clear in your meaning.
While I appreciate everything that you've done for me and the trust that you've instilled in me, I just don't believe I belong here.
You're quitting, after a month? Resigning.
You realize that no major firm is gonna touch you after this.
I understand that's a possibility.
And you're still willing to take that risk? I am I am, sir.
Good luck, Mr.
Thank you, sir.
Uh, what're you doing here? I was in DC.
Why are you here? I received an e-mail from your mom.
What did it say? That you loved my novel.
Umm, I'm busy - Excuse me? - I'm very busy with inventory.
Can I wait? No, but have a nice day.
Thank you for coming.
I am the Seaweed Monster! This was a great idea.
Then we should do it more often.
No matter how busy we are.
It just seems so hard letting everything go.
Well, why do we have to? We can balance our relationship and family and our careers.
How hard can it be? Hey, where'd the seaweed monster go? Hey, I'm gonna prove to you we can do it.
And I have a surprise for you.
- Oh really? - Yeah.
I am the Seaweed Monster! I got you!
