Everwood s03e07 Episode Script

Best Laid Plans

Previously on Everwood… You would’ve never gone for Ephram? Not my type.
I mean, no offense but I’m actually more into guys like your brother.
Bright? Surprising shallow.
Are you asking me out? I was trying to.
I’m sorry.
I think I’m in love with somebody else.
-Do I know him? -No.
Someone I went to high school with.
Let me tell you about the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees… Nice voice.
-Sound a little like Rod Stewart.
-I’ll take it.
So what can I do you for, Ephram? Oh, I-I just- I just came by to talk to Dr.
Jake.
I don’t have an appointment, but won’t be more than 15 seconds.
No problem.
He just got in.
Go on back to Exam Room One and I’ll let him know you’re here.
Thanks.
Ephram Brown.
Seems to be a - pretty common last name around here.
Unless? Yeah.
Son of… You’re Andy Brown’s son.
No way? Way.
Your dad is the man.
I looked him up when I got here.
There-there are like 500,000 websites with his name in them.
He’s like the Madonna -of medicine.
- I’ll be sure to pass that on.
Well, so what are you doing here? I mean, I just came by to get y’know tested for whatever.
Sexually.
I mean whatever you test for go ahead and test away.
Sure.
We can do that - no problem.
Uh, I just need you to fill out some paperwork here.
It’s just, uh, basic sexual history stuff, if that’s okay.
It’s standard procedure.
Yeah, no, that’s great.
Okay, here you go.
So what’s he like as a dad? Is he cool? Yeah, I mean, y’know, he’s, uh, he’s-he’s my dad.
When I was a resident at Cedars, I met tons of famous people so you know, you’d meet their kids and they’d be all kinds of crazy.
I just figured that anybody who is as successful as your dad would probably be a lousy parent, -but y-you seem pretty normal.
-Yeah, it’s asking me here If I’ve ever had sex with animals? Oh, yeah, people do weird things.
Just write no.
-Unless? -NO! Definitely no.
This is kind of funny.
I-I usually don’t get this excited.
I mean I treated Spielberg.
Conventional intercourse would be? Uh, intercourse with a woman.
Right.
Anyway, all the other residents, they were totally curious.
Y’know, like what kind of DVDs did Spielberg bring in? What kind of books did he read? I - I am done.
Oh, great.
Okay.
You know on the unprotected question, umm, let’s say like two times you didn’t have something with you and-and once it broke.
I mean, what are your odds of catching something? Seeing as you’re not an intravenous drug user and you’ve only had one partner, I consider you a low-risk candidate.
Good.
So you’re not currently sexually active? Uh, no, I’m not.
Uh, but I’m hoping to be, which is why I’m here.
Well, that’s responsible of you.
I kinda gotta get going, so… Of course.
Okay, we can do these tests for you right now.
I’ll run the whole panel and we can have results for you within a few days.
Back in a flash.
"Best Laid Plans" How’s it going, beautiful.
Ah, spare me the sweet talk and tell me that you can do short order.
That good, huh? Yeah.
Hey, have you seen Andy at all around today? Uh, actually I haven’t.
Why is everything okay? Yeah, yeah.
I just need to talk to him.
So, hey, how’s everything going with the high school guy? Y’know the one that you’re in love with.
Oh, oh, yeah, it’s going okay.
Just okay? Well, what did he say when you told him? Did he flip out? Not exactly.
What are y.
.
? Jake? Talk to me.
What happened? You’re not allowed back here.
I know.
I know, it’s a high security post.
So what’s going on? Nothing’s going on.
I haven’t said anything to him yet.
Don’t look at me like that.
I just… I haven’t had a chance.
The right moment hasn’t come up.
Well, it’s never gonna be the right moment.
You just have to do it.
Why is this so important to you? Because it’s just I to see you wasting your time pining.
That makes two of us and that’s just a total waste of energy.
It’s-It’s just…complicated.
He’s a good friend and cliché as this may sound – it’s hard to cross that line.
If I say something and he doesn’t feel the same way back, it could get all weird between us and our whole friendship is gonna change.
Well, it already has – at least for you.
I mean the fact that you’re not being honest with him right now what kind of friendship is that? And besides if you don’t tell him, I’m gonna keep on flirting with you.
Jake… Okay.
I’m going to retreat now to the unrestricted zone.
Don’t be scared, Nin.
Just do it.
The first times always hurts but it gets easier, I promise.
Oh maybe I’m not ready for this.
Well, maybe just try it one more time.
Amy, I’m leaving now.
I’ll be home on Monday.
You have Grandma’s number? Oh my God, I think it’s stuck up inside my eyeball.
Oh, let me see.
Let me see.
Oh yeah I see it.
It’s to the left.
Do you want me to grab it? Are you sure you should -be doing this? -We’re fine, Mom.
I think I got it.
I think I got it.
-You sure? -I got it.
I got it.
Mom, doesn’t Hannah look good without her glasses? Beautiful.
Stop it.
You girls have fun.
Bye.
I love you.
See you’re suffering now, but it’s gonna be totally worth it, I promise.
Like remember the first time you shaved your legs – completely traumatic, but not it’s like nothing.
No, it’s still traumatic.
So is Bright home? He’s, uh, working the restaurant today, I think.
Why? Curious.
What? Okay, I don’t want to sound like I hate my brother right now, because I don’t, but you can’t like him.
You think he’s out of my league.
No, it’s just better to be on the same level as the person you like in terms of experience.
How far have you gone? Oh come on.
It’s not like I’m the queen of experience either.
Trust me.
Uh, I’ve never kissed a guy.
Okay.
Now you see Bright is at the other end of the fooling around spectrum.
I mean there’s a huge gap between someone whose never kissed a guy and someone who's been with half of County.
It’s like he’s Tiger Woods and you’re playing miniature golf.
Only I’ve never even held a club.
It’s not all about how far you’ve gone.
It has a lot to do with attitude too.
I mean, Ephram and I, we take these things very seriously.
We’re comfortable talking about them.
Bright doesn’t take anything seriously at all.
Do you really want your first kiss to be with someone like that? Maybe.
Hannah, no.
Oh my gosh, just forget about my brother and I promise that I will make it my mission to find you someone better.
And besides with those new contact lenses, I’m not even gonna have to try.
Okay.
So when’s he getting home? Are we alone? Well, Dr.
Abbott left an hour ago if that’s who you’re referring to unless it’s Louise that you’re worried about.
Ah, she’s pretty scrappy, but I think I can take her.
So, hey.
Uh, I just wanted to run something by you.
How’s Edna doing? Uh, great.
She’s-she’s been great.
Has she made you her famous spiced cider yet? I can’t say that I’ve had the cider.
No.
Oh, that’s too bad.
It’s terrific.
You know she mills the spices herself.
Look a boy – a senior, 17 years old – came into my office today for an STD test.
Okay.
Okay and I’m sure it’s different in L.
A.
I’m- I’m just curious as to how it works here in Everwood.
Do you give them free contraceptives? It’s your call, Doctor.
You do whatever you want to do.
Well, yes, but since the kid’s a minor.
I mean do you notify the parent.
Parent or parents? Actually I think he’s being raised by a single dad.
Well, in that case, I would, uh, talk to him, make sure that he’s being safe and if anything abnormal showed up in the tests… No, I don’t-I don’t think that’s the issue here.
I think he’s just doing them as a precaution y’know - before.
Right.
Well, it seems like you’re covering all your bases.
Okay.
Good.
I was just trying to do the right thing here, y’know.
Don’t want to make any more rookie mistakes in this town.
Thanks, Andy.
Coming.
Ah, Dr.
Brown.
Come in.
Come in.
Your timing is impeccable.
Debra Winger’s just been diagnosed with a malignant tumor.
Another serving of shells and cheese is simmering on the stovetop.
No thanks.
I just ate.
Suit yourself.
Harold, listen.
Uh… You know I have to tell you this whole bachelorhood thing is not at all intolerable.
Do you realize I have serving utensils sitting in the sink unrinsed.
Unrinsed.
Now do you have any idea what kind of freedom that is? Ephram and Amy are going to have sex.
What? Jake came by my office after work today.
Apparently Ephram went to see him for an STD test – just as a precaution be-before they… Before they… Well, I’m assuming it hasn’t happened yet – at least that’s what he thought.
Jake told you this.
In a roundabout way, yes.
And believe me the irony did not go unnoticed.
It made me feel kind of bad about last year with Amy.
But listen that’s not important.
The point is… The point is they’re going to have sex.
Looks like it yes.
But how? How did this happen? Well, they’re both seniors in high school.
They’re going off to college next year, it’s not that unusual.
Ephram’s already had sex so he’s probably overready.
Do you think he’s pressuring her? No, I don’t think that and you don’t think that.
I think my macaroni and cheese is coming back on me.
That’s what I think.
My God, whatever happened to good old-fashioned handholding.
A chaste kiss on the cheek in the presence of a chaperone.
I don’t know, Harold, maybe they went the way of the poodle skirt.
And you have to go ahead and built that soundproof garage for Ephram.
Why not just buy them their very own Motel 6? Oh, calm down, Harold.
The reason I came here -is that so that you and I… -Oh don’t tell me to calm down, Andy.
My daughter’s about to be deflowered by Supersperm over there.
I’m not supposed to have a reaction? You don’t understand.
Of course I understand.
Ephram’s my son.
I’m just as upset about this as you are.
No, you’re not.
It’s not the same with boys.
I had the talk with Bright last year.
It lasted all of 15 minutes and I never even thought about it again.
Amy… Amy, she’s my little girl.
It’s different, Andy.
You’ll see in 10 years time when you’re having this conversation with Delia – get back to me.
You’re right.
I probably wouldn’t’ve given this a second thought if everything hadn’t’ve happened last year with… With Madison.
I know.
Listen, I’ll talk to him.
Maybe I - Maybe I can convince him to hold off for awhile.
And I’ll talk to Amy too.
Perhaps I’ll.
Oh God, Rose is out of town all weekend visiting that wretched mother of hers.
Do you think this can wait until Monday? Well, we can wait.
The question is can they wait? Welcome to bachelorhood, Harold.
Andy? Hmm.
Do you have any idea what you’re going to say? Nope.
You? No Not whatsoever.
You in the middle of something? Not anymore.
What’s up? I want to talk to you about sex.
Well, I don’t know how much pot you smoked in the 60s, but we had this conversation already last year.
I know that.
We gonna have it again with every girl I date until I’m married.
Hopefully, this will be my swan song.
But this one’s a little different.
This time I’m going to tell you that I don’t think you should… have sex… with Amy.
That was supposed to be a complete sentence.
Are you forbidding it? Obviously, I can’t control the decisions that you make but I-I would appreciate it if you would hear me out.
I know that you and Amy are in love and I know that that feeling is very powerful.
It makes you want to push the relationship forward, but I would like you to think about how it was for you with Madison last year.
How did you know that I had sex with Madison? Because at some point the relationship deepened.
It changed.
You changed and I saw it happen.
And I want you to think about how you felt after it happened and multiply those feelings by a thousand and that’s how it’s going to be for Amy.
Yeah, I hear you and if-if I didn’t think that I was in this for the long haul, then I might agree.
That’s just it.
You are in it for the long haul.
I can see that.
Which is why you can afford to take your time.
I mean, how’s it going for you two right now? Great.
We’re the best we’ve ever been.
Well, sex changes that.
Forever.
Dynamics – the focus of the relationship.
I mean, you two have worked so hard for so long to be together and to be happy.
You willing to risk that? Not when you put it like that.
Look, I know that sex has a way of feeling like the prize especially at your age and I understand.
All I’m asking for you to do is just take your time.
I just want you to, uh, enjoy getting to that.
It’s worth it.
-Impressive.
-Yeah? Yeah, I mean, definitely one of your better ones.
It hasn’t come yet, but, uh, y’know, if it does I’ll be sure to think about it.
Crudités? What is all of this? High tea.
Try this spread.
It’s wonderful.
No, I’m good.
Dad, you realize the last time we had a tea party I was like four.
Yes.
Yes.
And do you remember those tea parties? How we used to make those little cakes in your Easy Bake Oven.
Those were delicious weren’t they? Umm, yeah.
Yes, but remember how we took them out prematurely.
They wouldn’t be ready.
Hmm? Because, Honey, it wasn’t time yet.
I’m-I’m talking about sex, Amy.
I know that you and Ephram have discussed it.
What? No.
N-No we haven’t.
-Of course you have.
-No we haven’t, Dad.
Come now, we should be able to engage in an honest discourse on the subject without falling prey to the typical flusterings.
I am a hip dad.
For the record, you can’t say that you’re hip.
It kind of goes against actually being hip.
Is Mom home yet? Oh we do not need your mother.
Here, have a scone.
Listen to me.
-Dad… -Just I know that you and Ephram aren’t kids anymore.
You’re teenagers with all of those hormones coursing through your bodies.
Why wouldn’t you be thinking about sex? Cause it’s not that I’m not thinking about it.
I’m just… Oh, Honey, it’s only natural.
With the media bombarding you with suggestive imagery every chance it gets not to mention those Victoria’s Secret commercials, which leave very little to the imagination.
And I’m sure that many of your peers are even trying it out.
Yeah, some of ‘em.
Lots of ‘em.
And I’m assuming that you’re still on the pill.
Yes, but only because Aunt Linda said it wasn’t good to go on and off of it so I just stayed on.
Unless maybe subconsciously I stayed on for Ephram and I.
You probably did.
Because you wanted your first time to be with someone that you’re in love with and you felt comfortable with.
Yes, that’s true.
See I understand these things.
Maybe you’re right.
Maybe I’ve just avoided talking with Ephram about this because I’m… I don’t know, scared of my sexuality.
No.
Wh-What’s that now? You… Dad, you’re probably dead on.
I’m probably a lot closer to this than I thought.
Maybe it is time I start talking to Ephram about this stuff.
Wait, so you truly have not actually…? Dad, this is fantastic.
You really clarified a lot of stuff for me.
And you were right, we didn’t need Mom at all for this.
Hannah.
Hey, uh, we don’t open until 5:30.
Yeah, I know, I’m actually not here to eat.
I can’t remember if I told you or not but I’m living at Nina’s and she’s got a whole other person to feed now that I’m there and, uh, she’s so hard already so I was thinking maybe I could help her out and I know that you really seem to enjoy working here so.
What, you want a job? Yeah.
Are you okay? Do you have something in your eye? No.
Well, technically yes.
I’m just having some blinking issues.
Oh, so listen my manager’s not here right now and I’m on the clock so… Uh, okay.
But, uh, I can get you an application if you just hang for a little while.
I’ve got to do a few things.
Sure, I can hang.
All right.
You’re really good at that.
Setting up really fast.
Ehh.
I don’t think about it anymore.
You get used to it, y’know.
Well, it’s obvious you’re a natural.
Really coordinated and everything.
Uh, so you want some restaurant lingo so when you sit down with Mikey you’ll sound more professional.
Sure.
This what I’m doing right here… Umm, hmm.
It’s called marrying the ketchups.
Because you’re marrying two ketchups? Exactly.
Do you Mr.
Heinz take you, Miss, uh, Generic Tomato Paste to be your lawfully wedded wife? I do.
There must be a lot of inbreeding, huh? They’re both ketchups.
Y’know, they’re keeping it in the family.
I’m sorry that was stupid.
Oh, no.
No, I get it.
It took me awhile.
I like it.
Twisted.
-Thanks.
-Yeah Gotta got that Ephram smart thing going on.
So, uh, what are you doing right now? Now? ‘Cause I am off.
I was thinking about going to grab a movie.
Wanna come? Yeah, uh, yeah.
I can definitely come.
Sure.
Then let’s hit it.
Okay.
Oh, wait a minute.
You wanted that application, right? Right, yes.
One second.
Hello? Andy? Nina, there’s my lovely next door neighbor.
You know what you are looking at.
You are looking at one hell of a father-son communicator.
Is that so? Umm, hmm.
I had a very nice chat with Ephram this morning and, uh, let’s just say that I was extremely effective.
That sounds like a good enough reason for a night on the town, which is why I came by.
Oh? Well, I-I have a sitter for tonight.
She offered to work.
I think she was just looking for an excuse to get away from her boyfriend but I just heard about this new topes place.
Sounds really good.
You get a whole bunch of little tastes.
Oh very Spanish.
Sounds great.
What time should we go? Uh, actually I made a reservation for 8 o’clock, so uh? A reservation? Uh, yeah.
Wow, I haven’t heard that term in over a year.
Must be pretty swanky.
Yeah, well, it’s just new.
So, uh, so I’ll come by around 7:30.
Yeah, perfect.
Okay, see you at 7:30.
So, uh, I had sort of an interesting conversation with my dad today.
Yeah? Yeah, apparently he thinks we’re having sex.
Or that we’re thinking about it anyways? That’s a little weird.
I had the exact same conversation with my dad today.
Really.
I guess it’s in the air.
How long ago did you guys have this talk? A few hours ago.
The funny thing is he just sort of assumed that we’ve been thinking about it, which-which I haven’t really, but the fact that he was made me think that maybe we should be.
Edna? Ooh, I bring up sex and you bring up my grandma.
Okay, so this is not a big deal so don’t like freak out or anything, but I went and, uh, saw Dr.
Jake the other day, just for, y’know, some routine check-ups and stuff and I decided that I should probably get tested so I did and Edna must’ve seen my chart and told our dads which is why we’re both getting the talk.
Oh-Oh, wait, you went to get tested for like HIV and stuff.
Yeah, it seemed like the responsible thing to do, so… Why didn’t you tell me? Uh, I don’t know.
I guess I thought that they were my tests and they didn’t really have anything to do with you.
Okay? I mean, I took the tests for you.
I just figured I’d wait until I had a clean bill of health before I got you involved.
That’s romantic.
Some girls get flowers and I get test results.
No, I’m serious, Ephram, the second that I started thinking about this, I talked to you about it – like four minutes ago.
But not only did you not talk to me about it, you got a doctor’s appointment and got blood taken and-and… And you’re making this into a way bigger deal than it needs to be, okay.
What the getting tested or the having sex? Either.
Both.
I mean, it doesn’t have to be this massive.
Right, because you’re such an experienced sex god that our first time is just whatever.
B - But it’s not my first time.
But it’s OUR first time.
Thanks for reminding me though because you know you getting an STD test wasn’t enough.
Amy? Y’know what, Ephram, it doesn’t even matter because this whole thing just made me realize that we are not even close to being ready anyways Way to go, Dad, you almost had me this time.
What are you talking about? I know you know that I went to get tested which is why you gave me that load of crap about holding off with Amy.
It’s not a load of crap.
Ah, as if you had no idea, as if you’re just Mr.
Father Knows Best.
All right, I knew.
But you clearly didn’t want to discuss it with me.
Y - You most of the time just say the stupidest crap which really pisses me off, but every once in awhile you actually say something that makes since like this morning, I was actually thinking about taking your advice.
Look the fact that I knew about your doctor’s appointment -doesn’t change our conversation.
-Yes, it does.
It completely does, because it came from a totally false place.
Motivated by some personal agenda which I don’t get.
Well, what don’t you get? Why you care? Seriously, I… Why are you jumping through hoops trying to keep me from having sex? Maybe if it was my first time I get it, but it’s not.
Sex has been had so why are you freaking out now? Because… With you and Amy, it’s-it’s-it’s much more serious, -that’s why I-I… -I don’t care.
All right, forget it.
Hey.
Yeah, if I want to have sex, I’m gonna have sex and I’m not gonna talk to you about it.
I’ll just cancel that reservation.
Amy.
Hi, Grandma.
You totally ruined my life.
Well, this should be fun.
I mean, it is obviously not all your fault I just don’t understand why you would go to my dad instead of coming to me, especially after everything we went through last year.
Come to you about what? You’re making me dizzy, Private.
I know that you know that Ephram went to get an STD test from Dr.
Jake and I know that you told my dad who told Dr.
Brown or you told Dr.
Brown who told my dad.
I’m not quite sure of the order here.
Okay.
The point is now the entire population of Everwood knows that Ephram wanted to have sex with me except for me.
So you didn’t know he was getting tested? NO! Okay.
Okay.
I’m just trying to break this down to basics.
So you’re upset that Ephram didn’t tell you? I’m upset because… Because this whole thing is just embarrassing.
Partying in a public restroom is embarrassing.
That’s not what’s got you bugged.
So if you’re gonna throw a hissy fit at me at least me honest.
I feel like an idiot.
I-I-I’ve just been trying to convince myself that Ephram and I are on the same page with this stuff – sex and everything.
I mean, I-I knew that he slept with Madison.
He told me that but I just thought that maybe if I didn’t think about that, that I could pretend like it didn’t happen.
Why does it matter that it happened? Because how am I gonna live up to that? What? Oh, Amy.
Oh, Grandma, try to be a little unbiased here, seriously.
I mean, the girl’s like four years older than me.
Clearly way more experienced.
A helluva lot prettier.
Now watch it.
That’s my favorite granddaughter, you’re insulting.
I’m serious though.
I mean, I just try to imagine that Ephram and I were in the same universe and the bottom line is we’re not.
You’re in love.
That’s the only universe that counts.
Listen to me, sex isn’t just an act you learn how to do once.
It’s different with every person and-and every time you embark on that journey with someone new it’s scary.
No matter how many times you’ve done it before.
Heck, the first time Irv and I… Ooh, Grandma, no.
Sorry.
But you get what I’m saying.
It’s all right to be afraid or nervous.
It just means it’s important to you.
Yeah, I guess I don’t fully believe you yet, but I appreciate the thought.
Thank you.
Edna? You ever discuss a patient’s business outside the office again, you’ll be begging for a court marshal.
-How did you find out? -I’m a God, that’s how.
I know all.
The kid is a minor and to tell you the truth he looked kind of freaked out sitting in my office all by himself.
If I were his parent I would want to know.
You don’t get to make that call.
-What you did was unprofessional.
-If you’re talking confidentiality I didn’t mention his name – not once.
And I gotta say I-I still don’t know how you… Pay attention, because it might be complicated for your California pea-sized brain to understand.
Ephram Brown, son of Dr.
Brown, goes out with Amy Abbott, daughter of Dr.
Abbott, who happens to be my son, which makes her my granddaughter.
Wow, it’s like a Greek play.
That’s right.
So if you ever do anything like this again, I’ll buy a broach and stab you in the eyes myself.
Hey, Edna.
How come you never make me your spiced cider? So how are you liking this place? Nina treating you all right? Yeah, Nina’s great.
I’ve met a lot of really nice people.
You mean my sister and her permanent appendage.
And you? So hey, good luck that application.
If you need any help with the restaurant lingo, give me a buzz.
Really? Yeah.
Oh.
I’m sorry, did I lean in wrong? No.
No.
It’s just, uh, this-this isn’t that kind of night, Hannah? I know, I’m trying to make it that kind of night.
I like you, Bright.
Yeah, I know.
I kind of figured that out from before.
Oh.
Okay.
Hey, look, I’m sorry.
I hope I didn’t lead you on or anything.
Sorry.
No.
No.
No, you didn’t.
It’s fine.
Although, actually you kinda did.
I mean if you knew that I… Why would you do all that stuff? We just went to the movies, Hannah.
It’s not like I tried to rip your shirt off.
No.
No.
Hey.
Lo-Lo-Look, hey, you're right, I flirted, but I-I don’t know why, it’s just a natural reflex with me and… And what? And I don’t know, I guess part of me liked having the company.
Uh, I mean, look I’m really messed up right now.
I… My life is nothing like how I pictured it.
Y’know, all my friends are off to college and Ephram, he’s my best friend, we’re not even talking right now, y’know.
You coming in the restaurant today, I mean, you were looking up to me and treating me like a - movie star or something.
-Oh, God.
It felt good.
I haven’t felt like that in a long time.
Maybe you don’t deserve to.
It’s like every time we take two steps forward, we-we’re taking thirty steps back.
Oh, I’m sure it’s not that bad.
Maybe 29 steps tops.
I’m sorry.
Obviously, it doesn’t matter.
He’s gonna do what he wants to do.
There’s nothing I can do about it.
There was never anything you could’ve done about it.
I mean, I’m sure that it was helluva speech, but you didn’t really think that you were gonna stop them from having sex, did you? Why is that so crazy? I mean, when did we get to this point where kids just have sex and we’re supposed to be okay with it.
At least you know that Ephram is being responsible and you guys did cover that stuff last year.
Please, last year I had my head in the sand.
I was so busy trying to be his friend, his buddy, I think I actually told him to go and have fun if you can believe that.
Well, it doesn’t sound like the worst advice.
Trust me, it is.
You know, you can only pull off that friend routine for so long before being a parent catches up with you and you start to think about the ten million things that could go wrong.
But you can’t think about that stuff.
I mean, you can, but it’ll just drive you nuts.
If I worried about every possible concussion Sam might get when he hits the monkey bars, I’d go insane.
Well, monkey bars are very dangerous too.
Nina, I could tell you stories.
Please don’t.
But that’s the thing, Andy, there- -there comes a point where you just have to trust your kid and have faith in the universe they’re gonna be okay.
Yeah, well, I don’t have that kind of faith.
Well, I do.
And I keep a little extra for you so don’t worry okay.
I don’t know what I’d do without you, Nina.
I really don’t.
Look at you in that outfit; I can’t believe I messed up your evening tonight.
Ah, it’s okay.
I can always wear it again.
Yeah, but you look so pretty.
And I could’ve been your wingman tonight, I mean, I bet there are thousands of single guys at that place.
Well, y’know what, I’ll make it up to you.
Take a rain check okay? Sure.
Rain check.
Hey, Bright.
Look, I already know, okay.
So don’t bothering laying into me.
You can’t make me feel any worse than I already do.
Umm, hello, guilty conscious.
I just came to tell you that I took the trash out so you don’t have to.
Oh.
Thanks.
So what’d you do? Nothing.
Get into another fight with Dad? Mom? Ephram? Look, I’m not gonna talk to you about this, okay.
So go.
Okay.
Fine.
I don’t really have the head space to listen to what you have to say anyways.
Good.
But let me just give you two seconds of advice.
No, I’m serious and this is coming from a girl whose done therapy, yoga and antidepressants, so I know what I’m talking about.
You can’t keep shutting people out, Bright.
I mean, I know you think you can, because you think that you’ll keep finding new doors to open, but the fact is they’re not there.
There actually are a limited number of doors and an extremely limited number of great people who really really care so just work it out with whoever.
If there’s a thousand people pissed at you, then just start with one.
And start soon, because it’s really hard losing people.
It’s even harder getting them back.
That’s it.
Hannah, I think I am going to take that luan back.
Honey, is something wrong? No.
No.
I’m fine.
Something happen at home.
Did your mom call? Oh, no, it’s… It’s nothing.
It’s just stupid boy stuff.
Well, there’s nothing stupid about boy stuff.
You know how they say if you put yourself out there like really risk something – like your heart or something – that it’s supposed to work out.
Who says that? You know, movies, Shakespeare.
Oh, right.
Yeah, well, it’s definitely not true.
And personally I think that it is a very bad idea – putting yourself out there like unwise.
So, I’m guessing that you put your heart on the line and you didn’t get the outcome you were hoping for.
I just thought y’know, if I… if I got contact lenses and did my hair the right way that… maybe I’d be that girl that guys like back, but I’m not that girl.
I’m never gonna be that girl.
And I never should’ve told him that I liked him.
Him who? Never mind, it doesn’t matter.
But, honey, there’s nothing wrong with what you did.
Yes, there is, because he doesn’t like me back and now I just look like this enormous idiot.
No you don’t.
Actually, you look incredibly brave to me.
It takes guts to tell someone how you feel about them.
And you know what, it almost doesn’t matter what they say back.
Just the fact that you had the courage to say it that means that you are the kind of girl that gets the guy.
-No, it’s not.
-Not all the guys – the right guy – the one whose gonna appreciate how rare you are.
It’s just I liked liking him.
It was fun to think about him.
It was a fun dream to go to sleep to, y’know.
I guess false hope is better than no hope at all, right? Shakespeare – what a hack? Yep, I say that we skip dinner tonight and go straight to dessert.
What do ya think? I like it.
Oh.
I almost forgot.
Somebody left this by the front door.
I assume it’s for you.
Ketchup children.
What does that mean? Consolation prize.
You know, these crumpets are delicious.
I’ve never actually had a crumpet.
Hear me out, Brown.
I’ve researched thoroughly several well-respected programs accept new students at the semester break.
Andover for one is an exceptional music program.
-I don’t think that’s the answer.
-Okay, option two.
We devise a system whereby at no time these two are left unsupervised.
Did you know there is a Low jack device specifically designed for people? People on parole from prison.
But the technology exists.
We decide how to use it.
It’s over, isn’t it? Not necessarily.
They’re teenagers.
There’s a very good chance they’ll screw this relationship up before they even get to the sex.
Here’s to praying.
Hello, anybody home.
Rose? Harold? Thank God.
Never leave me alone again.
Oh, it’s good to see you too, dear.
We need to buy locks, Rose.
Lots of locks and a security system, preferably something with a motion detector.
Was there a break in? Not yet.
-Hi, Rose.
Welcome back.
-Oh, Dr.
Brown.
I don’t know what we have in the way of food, but you’re welcome to stay for dinner.
No.
No, I’m fine.
I’ll see you tomorrow, Harold.
Yes.
Yes, Let me tell you, Rose.
You can not imagine the type of weekend that I’ve had.
Oh, well, let me tell you my mother was in fine form as well.
You know if we went to see another movie, we could spend another two hours avoiding a conversation.
Yeah, I was thinking a triple feature.
It could be like the whole week never happened.
No, I’m glad this week happened, Ephram.
I’m necessarily a fan of how it happened, just… Pick a hand.
What? Pick a hand.
That one.
What is this? An apology letter, how very formal of you.
Your test results.
I wanted to try to make them as romantic as possible.
Y’know, pretty street, starry night.
And you’re clean.
Yeah, that wasn’t supposed to be a surprise.
Look, Amy, I need you to know that if, y’know, we do.
I mean, it’s gonna be a-a big deal for me as well.
It’s not something I’m- I’m gonna take lightly, because you’re not somebody I take lightly.
I know.
You, uh, you want to see what was in my other hand? Oh my God.
I was, uh, I was actually, uh, looking to try and find you a bracelet but then I saw this and it just reminded me of you.
The circle – it’s like infinite – it’s kinda how I feel about us, so… I’m – I’m shocked.
Here.
Allow me.
It’s beautiful.
Well, I guess it’s a good thing I stayed on the pill.
Y - You are? Since when? Last year.
For Tommy.
You went on the pill for that creep? Yeah.
So? I mean, you knew that when you went on the pill nothing was gonna happen, right? Are you feeling threatened? No.
You’re feeling threatened.
