Delicious (2016) s03e04 Episode Script

Season 3, Episode 4

1 Mimi, what is it? I have a malignant tumour in my left breast.
Maybe we should just be friends.
I've got a lot of friends.
- I want more.
- You Did she tell you what she's planning to do with the baby? If she had, I wouldn't betray her confidence.
It's not Michael's baby.
- Sam's gonna hate me.
- We don't have to tell her.
I enjoyed it so much that I'm not sure I want it to be my last.
The great master.
This beauty was crafted in 1933.
- Quite the year, actually.
- My mother was born.
You'll be here when I wake up? Well, I'll definitely be here if you don't.
Clamp, now! - Oh, shit, we're losing her.
- I'm no doctor, but this doesn't appear to be going very well.
BP's falling! Oh, is it over? The hardest part is.
(CONTINUOUS TONE) And that's the truth.
Dying is easy.
It's living that really takes it out of you.
No pre-op jitters for you, then.
You slept like a baby for ten hours straight.
Can you blame me? Dealing with all of you fussing over me is exhausting.
Speaking of which, Sam's already been here twice.
Oh, I hate that she's worrying about me.
Will you look out of her? Today? And after the surgery.
I don't want her spending all her days here locked in battle with Gina.
There's more to life! How about we look after her together when you come home? Running away again? - It's enough to give a guy a complex.
- No running.
Promised to make a family breakfast.
Am I invited? Since when were you family? I'm in a relationship with a family member.
You think this is a relationship? Well, isn't it? Er I haven't really thought about it.
Maybe you should.
I'll call you.
Where's Mimi? - Still sleeping last time I checked.
- Unbelievable.
- The woman's got nerves of steel.
- Where have you been? Mason's.
- So much for your promise of staying away from him.
- Annoyingly, I think I really like him.
The best sex in the world doesn't change the fact that he is a snake.
- It's more than sex.
- So go for it.
- You don't need my blessing.
- I do, actually.
Because if you can't forgive him, I'm not sure I can.
I just hope you know what you're getting yourself into.
Whatever the roses did, they don't deserve that.
Too much? We're all worried about her.
How are you coping? - With what? - Mimi.
The baby.
Mimi's gonna be fine.
End of.
And - as for the other thing - Sammy.
Look what the peacock dragged in.
- Thanks for coming.
- I was so glad you called.
You must have driven all night.
I'm no good at playing it cool.
It was impressive, actually.
She gave me her blessing while at the same time making me feel like a complete idiot.
I thought that today of all days - you two could put down your weapons.
- Never! She's right, of course.
Things will probably go horrible wrong with Mason.
Just like all the others have.
What's the worst that could happen? You end up pregnant and alone, back living with your mother? That's unlikely.
Well, then you'll end up with a broken heart, and we both know that's not fatal.
So what about you? Can we talk about the thing that we can't talk about yet? It just didn't work out.
Once we were a regular couple, the spark just disappeared.
- Well, I told - Oh, so not - the time for that speech.
- No.
(SIGHS) We just became bickering siblings living in filthy hostels with no money.
Not fun.
And then one night we both said some horrific things to each other and I went to this bar and met the most beautiful Italian man I've ever seen.
And But hang on.
So this baby is Italian? 100 percent.
Well, 75 percent.
25 percent Irish.
This is a brilliant combination! (LAUGHS) Brava! (LAUGHS) Well, you just left.
- Yeah, because you told me to.
- I didn't mean right away.
Oh, so, what, you meant - fuck off but not immediately? - (SIGHS) I don't know.
(SIGHS) I thought maybe I'd made a mistake.
When I said I wanted you to go maybe that was actually the complete opposite of what I wanted.
Shall we see where we could go? - The thing is that - That is, if you still want me.
I've never really wanted anybody else.
- Where is she? - She said she'll be right down.
I thought you were banished.
I've been offered a reprieve.
- You know Mimi can't eat any of this.
- Why not? Cos she's fasting.
She can't even have a cup of coffee.
All right, calm down, I'm not gonna force-feed her French toast.
OK! Oh.
You clearly all think I'm about to die, otherwise why the last supper? (SIGHS) Look, I appreciate all the support, but I have a request.
- Anything.
- Stand down, ladies.
Don't come with me.
I can deal with this much better without you looking at me with anguished faces.
Absolutely not! There's no way we're sending you off to surgery in a taxi.
Who said anything about a taxi? In case this is adieu rather than au revoir, I have a nugget for you all.
Do what feels right in your heart.
There's no other way worth living.
(CHUCKLES) Right! This could be my last trip, so make it a good one.
- No pressure, then! - (LAUGHS) - (ENGINE ROARS) - Yes! Ahh! (ROCK MUSIC) It's a routine procedure.
And she's in phenomenal shape.
She'll be home before we know it.
Good talk.
Do you know, motherhood didn't come easy for me.
I was sick every day of the pregnancy and had depression for months after.
But I did my best and that's really all you can ever do.
I know it seems daunting right now, - but you have two grannies eager to help - It isn't Michael's.
What? But it doesn't matter, we're still family.
Has Gina known all along? Fucking Benellis! You're all the same! Liars and cheats! Fuck! - Well, she'll calm down.
She always does.
- Don't bet on it.
Her head practically did a 360.
- Well, your timing couldn't have been worse.
- I was trying to do the right thing! - She'll forgive you.
- Me? - What about you? - You're the one who lied to her.
Because you told me to! And even when I tried to tell her, you swooped in and changed the subject! - Because I was looking out for you.
- How? By ensuring she would hate me when she found out the truth? - No! That's not - How would you have felt if it was the other way round, thinking it was your grandchild, then having it ripped away? It wasn't really about me, was it? It was just about you and Sam and your ridiculous power games.
I just got caught in the crossfire.
Well, I had hoped I'd die in my own bed, not in some damned establishment wearing a recycled gown.
You are not going to die.
General anaesthetic holds much more risk for the elderly.
And that's not taking into account all the bugs that seem to be running riot in our hospitals these days.
I'll make you a deal.
If you make it out of here, I'll finally take your advice and sign up for a dating app.
Hallelujah! If you don't have sex soon, you'll forget where everything goes.
Onward unto the breach.
What have I been doing here all this time, wasting years of my life investing in this place, in this family? - People who have no moral code whatsoever! - Can we just stop for a minute? Poor Michael is out there somewhere heartbroken and alone, all because like mother, like bloody daughter! Maybe you should give her a chance to explain.
Everybody makes mistakes.
- If you just talk to her - No, no more talking.
It's got me absolutely nowhere.
I can't do this any more.
- I can't.
- Neither can I.
Sammy From now on, I'm gonna focus on the people in my life who I know won't let me down.
Make the lunch special with - these ingredients.
- But lunch service is in an hour.
Hence the challenge.
Don't let me down.
- He likes to keep us on our toes.
- Why did this have to happen today? Why not today? Just I've, erm family stuff going on.
- Fuck.
- Have a little faith.
Mr Elliot adores you.
He'll love whatever you come up with.
- You think? - Of course.
And I can help you with your food prep if you like.
Let you get on with inventing.
Maybe you just need to find a way to relax.
Girlfriend Don't feel like a girlfriend But lover Damn, I'd be your lover Dio, would you just take it? Thanks very much.
- Sam, listen - I always knew you were capable of some pretty underhanded things, but this I mean, - What kind of person are you? - I can explain.
There is no possible explanation! You even had me doubting my own son, thinking he was an absolute bastard for running off and abandoning his pregnant girlfriend.
- We were going to tell you.
- When? At a time that suited you? That's how you operate, isn't it? Always putting your own needs and desires in front of everyone else's, especially mine! - Are you gonna let me speak? - No! I don't know why I was even surprised that Teresa was lying.
- I mean, she learnt from the best, didn't she? - Hey, that's enough! - Leave Teresa out of this.
- You're right.
It is enough.
- Any word from the hospital? - No, it's too soon.
Sam? "She'll calm down", you said.
"She just needs time.
" What a load of arse.
Er, just confirming that the chapel is booked for our vow renewal.
- Absolutely.
- Thank you.
You know, we actually got married there 30 years ago.
- Amazing.
What's your secret? - Patience.
And you have to be blind sometimes.
- Deaf others.
- (LAUGHS) Although, really, we had to get along.
We didn't have anyone else.
His parents didn't approve of me and mine didn't approve of him.
We didn't even have any guests at our wedding.
But it was a magical day nonetheless.
Look, let me make you a proper wedding cake.
No extra cost, of course.
Ohh, that would be wonderful.
Thank you.
- Erm, Andrew will show you to your room.
- Great.
OK, this way.
Chef, we're still waiting on orders - for tables 4, 9 and 12.
- Yeah, I know.
It's not what I was hoping for.
- We're gonna need a new special.
- Oh, erm What about this? It's just something I was working on this morning.
- Yeah.
Put it on the board.
- Yes, sir.
And put this in the bin, where sadly it belongs.
- Good work, Rhiannon.
- Chef.
(SIGHS) You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.
I'm definitely the luckiest.
Isn't this a bit drastic, - making a decision like this on a day like today? - It is exactly the best day.
Do you think Mimi would stick around if someone had done this to her? I just think you should take a breath.
I was only ever here because of Leo.
I mean, who was I kidding? As if I could ever trust her, after all she's done! Just promise me one thing.
No lies, OK? Whatever happens.
Just stop for a second.
I mean really.
Just stop.
Maybe, er take a seat.
(SIGHS) I slept with someone at Mimi's party, after we split up.
I was hurt.
Who was it? Janice.
Mimi's doctor.
- Really? - Sure.
You can leave now.
- Sammy, please.
- Get out.
- How's that, then? - Yeah.
Face it the other way.
No, the other other way.
That's it.
- Is this your way of getting me up the aisle? - Don't flatter yourself.
I must admit, this rent-a-crowd venture is a new one on me.
(SIGHS) What's wrong? I well and truly screwed up with Sam.
Apologise, then.
I tried.
I just don't think we can get past this.
- So what now? - Dunno.
I just want her to be happy.
(DOOR BANGS) Thank you so much.
What's all this? Well, everyone deserves a proper wedding day with flowers - and guests and a maid of honour, if you'll have me.
- Yes.
I'm your best man, I believe.
Thank you.
You owe me.
- Excuse me? - You know what you did.
And it's time to make amends.
- Go on.
- I want out of the Penrose.
Away from here altogether.
Surely with your connections, you can help me secure a position elsewhere.
I don't think that's a good idea.
- Meaning? - Meaning Gina would kill me.
That's really not my problem.
This is between me and you.
And we both know it's the very least you could do for me.
I'll see what I can do.
I'm so grateful to you for all of this.
We both lost a lot when we chose each other.
Of course.
Excuse me.
Teresa? Calm down.
Calm down.
- Sam! Sam! Sam! - Get out of my way.
Teresa just called from the hospital.
They think Mimi's had a stroke.
(MONITOR BEEPS) What's happening? The nurse said she should have woken up by now.
- I'm going to find a doctor.
- OK.
You OK? Yeah, I'm fine.
Erm I'll be back in a minute.
What's happening? - What if I lose it? - Don't.
What if it sensed that I wasn't sure? - What if it didn't feel loved? - Stop! That baby is blissfully unaware of all the chaos out here, including your feelings.
- Just try to relax.
- Yeah.
Can you see it? Erm I'm sorry.
I can't find a heartbeat.
Yes, you can.
Yes, you can.
I heard it just last week.
- I'm sorry.
- Stop saying fucking sorry! Just do it again, just do the scan again.
Yes, you can.
Mum! - Teresa - Mum, why isn't she doing it again? - Why isn't she doing it? Mum! - Teresa - Please do it again! - No.
- (SOBS) - Oh! Oh, my darling.
(SOBS) You died in a room like this.
Well, this is awkward.
Is it selfish of me to want her to stay alive because I need her? Maybe you've never been selfish enough.
Without you here, without Michael maybe without Mimi I don't know where I belong.
You know, I wouldn't have minded if you'd taken that job in London when we got married.
Of course you would.
You wanted me to be here.
I wanted you to be happy.
(MONITOR BEEPS) How's Mimi? We're still waiting.
I'll, erm - I'll come back later.
- What for? So we can talk.
- I have nothing more to say.
- You broke up with me.
I was devastated.
I wasn't thinking straight.
Of all people, - I really thought I could trust you.
- You can.
I'm so sorry, Sammy.
(ALARM BEEPS) Who do I have to screw to get a slice of toast around here? - I'm starving! - Oh, thank God! - Please? - Let's just check you over first.
A cup of tea, maybe? - I'll get you a cup of tea.
- Oh, thank you! I didn't actually realise how much I wanted it till the scan was happening.
How much I'd made plans for it.
How fucked up is that? That is not fucked up at all.
I think you've been incredible throughout all of this.
I've never been so proud.
(SNIFFS) Where is she? They've taken her for some tests, but she seems fine.
Teresa lost the baby.
I'm so sorry.
Is she OK? She will be.
Listen, erm, about before This experiment just hasn't worked out between us, has it? I'm leaving.
This way we can all move on with our lives.
That's, er That's fine by me.
I can finally run the place the way I want to.
Well, that's decided, then.
Not partners, not friends, not family.
What a difference a little time can make.
A minute, a day, a week, a month.
A whole life can change.
Friendships can collapse, families split apart.
But for every door that slams shut, - a new one springs open in its place.
- Hi! Welcome to La Fontaine.
- Thank you.
- Can I show you to your table? I had two miscarriages before I had Leo.
And I carry that with me always as a reminder that life is precious.
Is this what growing up feels like? - You're talking to the wrong person, dear! - That's true.
Our battle scars are what make us.
They show us that we were wounded but not defeated.
I just, I can't stand the thought of you leaving, of all this being over.
There's a time for everything, dear.
champagne to celebrate.
- It suits you.
- What does? This place.
If it was a dress, it would be a perfect fit.
Oh, well, so far, so good.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Enjoy.
The staff seem gloriously uncomplicated and professional.
Yeah, but they're just trying to impress their new boss.
(LAUGHS) Well long may the good times last.
How did Sam find anything? Probably cos she didn't just chuck stuff at her desk like it's a dartboard.
What are you looking for? I may have taken a booking for a wedding on the same night that Sam confirmed a 40th birthday party.
- Now the groom is threatening to sue.
- No! No! No! What are you doing even taking bookings? You're not allowed.
- Sam told me.
I can handle that.
- Oh! - You have to call her.
- Call who, sorry? Cher.
Who do you think? You've been miserable for weeks.
Admit it.
- No, I haven't.
I'm perfectly all right.
Thank you.
- Bullshit.
Call her and apologize.
- Grovel if you have to.
- I can't.
You can.
You just need to swallow your enormous ego for once.
What It's all right.
Just disappear.
I've got this.
Shouldn't you be at lunch service? I can't cook.
And I can always cook.
It just doesn't feel right.
Sam should be here.
I feel like Torvill without Dean.
More like Tom without Jerry, from what I could see.
If you hadn't got her that bloody job in that poncey hotel, we might have been able to work things out.
- You said you wanted her to be happy.
- Here! I wanted her to be happy here! - Well, I owed her a good turn.
- Well, you should never have got involved! - She's my business partner.
- But you're complete opposites.
- You fight like cats and dogs.
- I know! - That's how it works! - (SIGHS) This is totally confusing.
Whatever this is between us is never going to work out if you're going to go interfering behind my back.
Interfering? It was a peace offering.
And one that could have destroyed everything that I've worked so hard to create.
You can blame me all you want, but the truth is she was going anyway.
This place it just wasn't enough for her any more.
Service! Where's Gina? I've no idea, but when I find her, I'm going to kill her.
What are you doing here? I just needed a bit of normality.
This place is your normal? You do realise how crazy that makes you? Welcome.
It'll be a quick turnaround.
And we're full this evening, so Can you take over for me for a sec? - Nice place.
- It is.
I'm lying.
It smells funny.
- I hate it.
Come home.
- Don't.
- I mean it.
You don't belong here.
- You're wasting your time.
Look, I know I should've told you about the baby.
I didn't want to disappoint you.
I knew how excited you were, we all were.
I'm doing what's best for me now.
But we're what's best for you.
We're your family.
And the Penrose is a family business.
That's what we love about it.
La familia.
- It's in our blood.
- But we're not blood.
We never were.
We were just pretending to be.
And see how well that turned out.
Well, the Penrose just doesn't feel right without you.
First Adam, then you, and now you're taking Mimi.
It's all unravelling.
I was only ever playing support there.
To Leo and then to you.
I want to see what happens when I give myself that space to put myself first.
You're right.
It was all about me.
But not any more.
It's about a mile or so from the Penrose.
It's perfect for the spa.
I sold the rest of the wine.
I put a deposit down this morning.
It's yours if you want it.
It's too late.
I work here now.
- And this is what you really want? - It is.
We're having a family supper on Sunday, before Mimi moves out.
You should come.
We might not all be together again.
I already have plans.
Good luck, Sam.
It's like losing a limb, letting go of the ones you love.
Even the people that hurt you the most.
Er, excuse me, chef who doesn't work here any more, unhand my pots! You were gone and I just got stuck in.
Well, I'm here now, so you can get back to your posh, weightless food.
What if I don't want to? It's not just about the cooking for me.
It's all of it.
It's about being around people who know me and care about me.
People who I can trust.
There is no substitute for that.
You made your bed.
I know, but fuck that! I wanna come home.
You took bloody long enough.
(CHUCKLES) Thank you.
I thought you might like to know that your head chef has resigned.
I heard.
It's not the first time Rhiannon has scared off the competition.
- Well, Adam has a very big heart.
- I know.
That's why he never stood a chance.
So, that makes it one-all, then.
Sam is blissfully happy and won't be coming home, thanks to you.
I don't wanna fight.
Yeah, I I know.
(SIGHS) So where does that leave us, then? (SIGHS) Like any other new couple, I guess.
At the beginning.
So what brought you back to us, then? It was like Gladiator in there.
That kind of ambition, it's ruthless.
I don't wanna spend my days looking over my shoulder.
I'd much rather be here.
You do realise we're completely dysfunctional.
Yeah, but I already knew that.
Well, for what it's worth, I think you might actually be a better chef than my mum.
But if you tell her I said that, I will have to kill you and bury you in her compost heap.
Seriously I needed that.
Oh, shit! I'm so sorry.
Are you OK? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm fine.
It is actually fine.
It doesn't I actually can't feel anything at all.
Mrs Hasni! - Looking beautiful! What a pretty dress! - Oh.
- Just a little something.
- Oh, you're too kind.
You shouldn't have.
Here he is now.
- Look who's come to visit you, Mr Hasni.
- Hi.
And you are? I'm Keira, darling.
I'm your wife.
You enjoy yourselves now.
Let's go and have a cup of tea, hm? (PHONE RINGS) There's a time for everything.
Michael? Finally! A time to live and a time to die.
Thank you.
A time to hold on and a time to let go.
A time for war and a time for peace.
I wish I could think of something more original to say than I'm sorry, but that is exactly what I am.
I am so incredibly sorry that in trying not to hurt you, - I ended up doing completely the opposite.
- Michael called.
He told me things were pretty much over between you before I'm sorry about the baby.
Here she is.
- There she is.
Are you all packed? - Yes, of course! But - I'm not coming with you, dear.
- What? I've booked myself into a luxury health resort on Lake Como! Indefinitely.
You see, I want to recover in style, not watching Judge Judy in a granny flat.
I'm sorry.
All right? Oh! Look at that! I'm so glad you came.
I couldn't resist one last Gina Benelli feast.
Let's eat, then.
(ALL LAUGH) - Ooh! I'll have some spaghetti.
- Right.
Thank you.
Let's eat, everyone.
- Delicious.
- This looks great.
- Some spaghetti for you.
- Oh, lovely! - That's enough.
That's enough.
- What is that? We call that long green spaghetti, if you're interested in it.
Mm! So, apparently, pregnancy can affect allergies.
So carrying a baby forces the body to accept something foreign.
So the baby cured you? I guess it did.
Are you sure about this? I am 23 years old and I have never been in a swimming pool.
Fair enough.
MUSIC: Movin' On Up by Primal Scream I was blind Now I can see You made a believer Out of me I was blind Now I can see You made a believer Out of me I'm moving on up now Getting out of the darkness My light shines on My light shines on - My light shines on - So, is it just dinner and tonight, then? Or are you in? You're impossible.
And you're infuriating.
I'll think about it.
That's the problem with life.
You don't even realise you're in this crazy kaleidoscope of glory until it's too late.
My light shines on Take it from me.
Every second is precious.
Don't waste a heartbeat.
