Girlfriends Guide To Divorce (2014) s04e04 Episode Script

Rule #49: Let It Shine

1 Previously on "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" - Bald Eagle is Albert.
- Are you gonna keep seeing him? I don't know.
There's something there.
I mean, I'd be lying if I said there wasn't.
You were right, this is our thing.
But if we decide to settle, it'll be our decision.
You do know that as long as most of your money is tied up in this place, you are not liquid.
Stroke, not stake.
My dad had a stroke.
Hard to know exactly what the damage is.
But there's going to be damage? - Almost certainly.
- I met someone.
It's complicated.
I already broke up with him, but I still feel him, you know.
I decided to move forward with our little bald friend.
I gave you room to make the right decision and you blew it.
Wow! The truth comes out.
Mom.
Mom? My mom died.
She had a heart attack.
I mean Miss McCarthy, it's your dad.
- You're awake.
- Where's mom? I'm sorry, Rabbi, but this list my mother made for her own funeral is so specific I mean, Blackberry Manischewitz.
Is that still even a thing? Oh, it is a thing.
And it'll mess you up hard.
I am telling you.
- Really? - Thanks for the tip.
- Why don't you sit down, Abby? - I'm fine standing, thank you.
Abby, this list should not be a source of agita.
That's not what your mother would have wanted.
Okay, yes, that is what she would have wanted, but okay, I mean, some of these things are like They're not even possible.
She wanted Jake to play "Let it Shine" on the piano.
I thought she hated Jake.
So did I, but apparently, she loved his piano playing.
Or she thought it sucked and she just wants to humiliate him one more time from beyond the grave.
I'm gonna go with option "B.
" I think that's fantastic.
I love that idea.
You know what? Jake can't even come so, you know.
By the way, by the way, this is an actual grocery list for Zabar's.
Zabar's delivers now.
Across the country in 24 hours? The funeral's tomorrow.
- Oh.
- Abby.
Abby.
You know what? Let's shake it out, okay? - I just want you to breathe - I'm fine.
I'm fine.
- And I want you to let it go.
- I'm gonna be fine.
Please stop shaking me.
Please.
Okay.
You know what? We all hold on to what serves us.
But, Abby, this list is important.
Well, so is finishing my eulogy and so is picking my father up from the hospital.
Honoring the wishes of the departed, the Torah does not screw around with that shit.
But don't just give up.
Don't let some writing on a piece of paper dictate your emotions.
Let it guide you.
Let Dina guide you.
Okay? You've got this.
Okay, I'll try.
I will do it.
- There you go.
- Yeah.
'Cause, Abby, you are a warrior.
I'm a warrior.
That list is your bitch.
Where are you going? I have an appointment with my bathtub.
It has been a beast of a day, believe me, and I need to practice a little self-care.
But you've got your girlfriends here, and I will see you tomorrow.
Bye, everyone.
- Bye, Rabbi.
- Bye, Rabbi.
Bye.
[SIGHS] Well, turns out death is stressful.
We got this.
The guests have been invited.
The coffin is picked.
Babs has already ordered the flowers for the reception.
She's doing her part from L.
A.
We're good.
And what about the seating? Have we Chairs are done.
Boom.
I'm concerned we're not gonna get those chairs right.
Does the Torah have any specifics on the particular plastic [LAUGHTER] Or brand of folding chair? Yeah, I'm surprised my mother didn't specify.
She wants the exact chair that she sat on at my bat mitzvah.
Your mother's quite the character.
Yeah, she was.
Anyway, we need a piano player.
Yes, we do.
It would have been nice if Jake were here.
Yeah, it would have been helpful to have him here with the kids.
But you know, he's filming and whatever.
It's a mess.
Ow! Look, this thing is sweet! Oh, how retro.
Yeah, it's Max's.
Half this house is a shrine to Max's childhood.
Did you see all of the baseball trophies in the den? Mm-hmm.
This is a Slinky.
This is what us kids played with in the Paleolithic era.
It was even before my time.
What are you, Jurassic? Where's your sister, bun-bun? She's up in her room.
She's really sad.
Yeah, well, she misses grandma.
Grandma's gonna be a ghost now, right? Mm, yeah.
Absolutely.
Does that mean she's gonna come to our house - and haunt us? - No.
And if she did, it would be, you know, like, not the scary kind.
She'd probably just come back to question our choices.
Take this.
Take that.
Go away.
Hello! Abby.
You made it.
You're here.
Thank God.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Oh.
You're so scruffy and and skinny.
I'm sorry, Mom? Is my mom still here? All right, come say hi to your uncle.
Uncle Max! Hey, Charles.
You've gotten so big.
- Uncle Max.
- Yeah? Mom says that grandma's ghost is gonna come back and question our choices.
That that that sounds extremely accurate.
[LAUGHTER] - Hey.
- I'm so sorry.
Oh, thank you.
Thank you.
BOTH: Hi.
You look svelte.
If you got stuck in a Berlin airport like I was I couldn't get a flight out.
I'm so No, I get it.
You're here now.
That's all that matters.
I stopped off to see dad.
Yeah.
They're discharging him today.
Yes, can you go get him actually? I have so much stuff, you know, with funeral prep and Oh, no, no.
I was I was gonna take a nap.
I'm pretty jet-lagged.
- Yeah, yes, of course.
- Thank you.
I will I will get him.
How'd he seem to you? - Out of it.
- Yeah.
I'm not sure he's fully grasping what's happened.
Yeah, I know.
It's hard to see him like that.
But the doctors say that he'll recover most of his memories.
So, you know, we'll see.
Okay, photos for the service.
Mom was very specific.
- Well - Ladies, you all have the list.
- Yes, we have the list.
- We got it.
It'll wish it never met us broads.
Yeah! I win! No, no, not piano lessons.
No, a piano player.
Do you perform? - No, I won.
- I won.
Will you guys please keep it down? I won.
No, I won.
Yes.
Well, do you know anybody? Hey, you wanna race next? Oh, Auntie Delia doesn't like to race.
She likes to watch and judge.
Well, Auntie Jo likes to jump in feet first.
That's why she falls down the stairs and gets hurt so often.
You fell down stairs? Cool.
Yeah, but I got right back up.
Okay, thank you.
- Any luck? - No.
But thank you so much for your help, guys.
Oh, we were just babysitting, and by "we", I mean me and Charlie.
I'm supposed to be the baby? - You're quick.
- You're hilarious.
What is going on between you two? You have been so weird the last few days.
I don't know whatever shit is happening between you two, but you need to bury it.
[CELL PHONE RINGS] - At least for Abby.
- Is that the piano player? No, but I will I'll be right back.
Hi, how are you? Speaking of weird, what kind of mystery calls is she making? She won't say.
Mystery man maybe.
Anyway, look, she's right.
Abby's going through it.
The least we can do is not let this Albert shit bubble up.
I'll keep it in if you will.
Okay, fine.
Let's go through Dina's list, see what we can come up with.
- Let's play race cars instead.
- Let's go.
- The list.
- The list.
What time period are we looking for? 1975 to 1977.
According to the list, those were her hot years.
She said that? - Yes, she did.
- Hot.
Okay.
[LAUGHS] That's so mom.
Oh, look at Mom and Dad in this photo.
They were really into each other, huh? Okay, less nostalgia, more searching.
Look, I'm sorry.
Okay, funeral drill sergeant.
How's it all going? Oh, photo hunting, Phoebs, it's tough.
Any luck with the piano player search? No, but just just chill.
- We have it all under control.
- Okay.
Yeah.
Oh, well, that one's amazing.
Oh, yeah! Yeah, Universal Studios.
- I loved that trip.
- Abby doesn't look very happy.
Yeah, well, that's because that was all about Max.
I had to miss Carla Nabors' slumber party to do that.
Oh, please.
You hated Carla.
I did not hate Carla.
Don't don't play that whole game.
What game? The whole Mom and Dad love me more thing you do.
That's not a thing I do.
[CHUCKLES] The country may be fact-proof, but in this house, we like to acknowledge fact.
Phoebe, I hope you're hearing this.
And if you are, I hope you take my side.
Okay, I'm very thirsty.
Anybody want anything? - No, I'm good.
- Okay.
Ginger ale would be great for me.
Well then, ginger ale it is.
Oh, Lil, hey.
How are you holding up? Okay.
How are you? Oh.
Grief, huh? It's just five little letters, but they pack a big wallop.
Yeah, I don't know what I'm talking about either, but I'm here for you, you know, if you want to talk about Grandma or about you know, how you're dealing Do you want to talk about Grandma? You keep worrying about me and asking me to talk, but she was your mom.
Yeah, I know that.
So do you want to talk? No.
No.
Not yet.
Thank you, though, sweetie.
Okay.
Oh, God, Abby, there you are.
Okay, well, do you want the good news or the bad news first? Just tell me both.
Okay, so Zabar's won't deliver on time.
- Yeah.
- But we found a market that's, like, 20 minutes away, and they have a deli and they serve Jew food and they have Blackberry Manischewitz.
- So - Love it.
- Jo and I can go.
- Yeah.
Teamwork.
Team working.
So Max liked this photograph.
He thinks it's '77.
He went to take a nap so I just thought I'd clear it with you.
- I know.
- I don't know.
It's fine.
I'm sure it's fine.
I need to get out of this house.
I am so stir crazy.
Someone grab the list.
Let's go shopping.
Okay.
Well, I've got the list.
We're going shopping.
L'chaim.
[UPBEAT MUSIC] [HUMMING] Ooh, you found the Blackberry Manischewitz.
Yep, two cases.
Look what I found.
Oh, the braided candles.
Another Jewish item that literally has nothing to do with funerals - on her list.
- Yeah.
Oh, and Delia called.
She found She found a bunch of blue shawls.
- Great.
- Not sky blue, per your mother's exact instructions - I can't even - But sky adjacent.
Leave it to my mother to insist on dressing everybody for her own funeral.
Oh, God, I'm sick of that.
I'm sick of this.
Tell me about you, please.
Me, I'm good.
I'm good.
- Seriously, that's it? - Yeah.
Normally, I can't get you to shut up about your stuff, and now, when I need you to distract me from my dead mom, you've got nothing? That's putting me on the spot.
What about the guy, the boxing guy? - Bald Eagle.
- Yeah.
That was, like, in a weird, funky place.
Well, not anymore.
We're dating.
- What? - Jo! - Yeah.
- That's amazing.
- I know, weird.
- So you're getting to know him.
- Yeah.
- So what's he like? He's he's very cool.
He has sort of a spotted history romantically.
- Right.
- Bad decisions, whatever.
Don't we all? And he's working his shit out.
What does he do? He's an attorney.
He's a tax attorney.
- Taxes.
- Yeah.
Wow, your love life sounds very exciting.
Well, you have no idea.
I thought you'd be more excited.
I think it's an amazing offer, but you convinced me to take Christede to trial, make sure justice is done.
If this settlement offer holds, that's some pretty serious justice.
Plus, you and I are both swamped.
There's a lot going on.
It wouldn't be the worst thing to wrap up this case.
Well, I thought you wanted to make your name on this.
Yeah, I also want what's best for our clients.
You okay? Yes.
It's a strong result.
Why don't we just sleep on it, hmm? - Make 'em sweat.
- Sounds great.
My condolences to your friend.
Just let me know when you get back.
All right.
Okay, we have got the smoked salmon, - the arugula.
- Great.
I didn't find all the ingredients - for the Kegel.
- Kugel.
Whatever.
Potato, "potahto.
" - What is wrong with you? - What? - What is wrong with you? - Oh, I just got off the phone with Paul.
Christede's lawyers want to settle.
Well, that's great news, right? - We're considering all options.
- Great.
Guys, I'm getting shopping hives.
Can we just wrap it up? We're almost there.
Hold your roll.
Well, that is the most Jewish cart I've ever seen in my life.
Thank you.
I had so much help from my consultant, Delia, - right here.
- I had to take a work call.
- It was Paul.
- Ooh, Paul.
Yeah, colleagues with benefits, just how I like it.
I like to get to know someone before, you know, jumping in and getting into something serious.
A model of good judgment, this one.
It's so crazy that you and Delia are both dating attorneys, isn't it? Oh, my God, Jo, I thought you weren't gonna say anything - to Abby.
- What are you talking about? About what? - Nothing.
- No, tell me what it is.
I don't think it's important.
It is important.
- I want to know.
- Oh, no, you wanna know? - I am screwing Bald Eagle.
- Right.
- Mm-hmm.
- Bald Eagle is Albert.
Ergo I'm screwing Albert.
There, all caught up.
Everyone's all caught up.
- Oh.
- Albert? - How'd that even happen? - Oh, my God.
- It's shocking, huh? - Shocking? It is shocking.
What just came out of your mouth? - It's disappointing.
- You said it was fine.
- Oh, I did not say - That happened.
- You gave your blessing.
- I didn't give you my blessing.
- You said it was up to me.
- That is not what I said.
Stop it! Jesus, we're in public.
God! Albert? [SIGHS] Where's my bun-bun? Dad, hi.
You must be so happy to be out of the hospital.
Oh, no, no, no.
I wanted to move in.
I was getting quite comfortable there.
- Oh.
- [LAUGHS] - Hi.
- What have we here? A gathering of beauties here.
Now, I always like it when you had your friends over.
Well, you remember when they visited you in the hospital.
You know Jo, and that's Phoebe, and that's Delia.
- Hi.
- Mr.
McCarthy, it's so nice to see you.
Oh, I'm so glad you're Okay, ease up.
Ease up, Jo.
Yes, yes, ease up.
- You have a lovely home.
- You do.
And we are so sorry for your loss.
What loss, dear? No loss.
We're just happy you're better.
Oh.
- We're gonna go.
- Yes.
Maybe open up a couple bottles of Manischewitz.
Just two, please.
I need them for tomorrow.
Okay.
Yes.
I said okay, Ford.
Agreed.
Sorry.
Uhm Tell the kids I love 'em.
- Hey, sorry.
- That's okay.
How's Ford? He's fine.
Feels terrible that he couldn't be here.
The job right now and traveling with kids is Yeah, well, Jake has stuff, too, so [CHUCKLES] Yeah, that's that's not the same thing.
Wow, okay.
No.
Oh, no, no, no.
I didn't mean it I didn't I'm sorry.
I mean, Jake is the father of my children, and he has actually technically known mom longer than Ford has, So well, knew mom, past tense.
Ab, you're right.
You are right.
I'm sorry.
You have you seen dad? He seems better, much better.
Well, physically.
Mentally, he just He can't hold onto anything.
The funeral tomorrow might be interesting.
Well, I'm jealous, you know.
Blissful ignorance sounds very appealing right now.
Let's just get through tomorrow.
Mm-hmm.
All I'm saying is that when Albert screws up your life and breaks your heart, don't come crying to me.
Okay, and when I get married to the guy, I'll make sure you're off the bridesmaids list.
Oh, you're getting married now? Oh, that is gonna be quite the union.
- Like you and Gordon? - Oh, my gosh, stop it.
No, Phoebe.
Is that what we're doing right now, we're commenting on each other's personal lives now? - Guess so.
- Which one of your train wrecks shall we start with first, Pancho, Scott, or Frumpkis? Oh, my God, could you please stop with the Albert fight? Good luck with that.
I think it's great that everyone's taking it so lightly.
We're not taking it lightly.
[VOICES OVERLAPPING] Will you please shut up? I am burying my mother tomorrow! Okay, I'm sorry.
[SIGHS] We are all sorry, but, Abby, the kids are right inside.
I know that, Phoebe.
You know who else is inside? My dad who doesn't even understand that his wife is dead.
And you know who isn't there? Jake.
Jake who has known my mother for 20 years because he has to direct a stupid vampire show in stupid Canada and we're not even together anymore, so no obligation.
Just "Good luck burying your mom" by myself, no support.
Abby, we're trying to support you.
No, you are fighting over Albert.
No, I am not fighting over anybody.
- [VOICES OVERLAPPING] - Yet! - No, no.
- But you are probably next, because he is just working his way through this group.
No way.
I'm going to bed.
I'm so exhausted.
This day could not be over soon enough, and tomorrow is gonna be worse.
So I just need you to go to your hotel and get your shit together.
You're all I fricking have.
[SOMBER MUSIC] How's this? Oh, it looks nice.
Such a beautiful picture of her.
Oh, Lil.
[SNIFFS] I'm gonna go find Charlie.
I think he's in the main house.
Okay.
Hey, Abs.
Hi.
This place looks great.
Thank you.
Look, about my outburst last night, I [ALL SPEAKING AT ONCE] We were just selfish.
Today's about your mom.
No more mention of the "A" word.
Okay.
[CELL PHONE RINGS] I have to go talk to the rabbi for just a second.
Oh, go ahead.
Sorry, I'll be right back.
Excuse me, Rabbi.
Abby.
Hi.
Sorry to interrupt.
No, it's okay.
Are you ready for today? Yes.
I'm happy to report that we got most of the things that were on the list.
I mean, the smoked salmon is not really up to Zabar's level, but it is salmon and it is smoked.
We could not find a piano player, but we literally bought every single Jewish ritualistic Abby.
Abby, you know what, don't worry about any of that stuff, okay? We made it.
We're here.
Yes, we are here, but you said that this was important for my mom and for, you know, God.
Ah, I thought you needed something to focus on.
I mean, you were about to explode like a bit of a "heads up, fire in the hole" kind of situation.
My mother died.
Yes, but the Talmudic teachings tell us, Abby, that death is as much about comforting the living as it is about respecting the dead.
And in a way, Dina's list was more for you than it was for her.
Yeah, just let me know what happens.
Okay, thank you.
You all right? Yeah.
Did Abby send you to get me? I know I should be on chair duty.
No, just me.
I know she can be, um intense.
[LAUGHTER] But she loves the shit out of you.
I hope Anouk and Luco have that relationship when they grow up.
How are Anouk and Luco doing with the the divorce? Oh.
Yeah, I heard.
I'm so sorry, Phoebs.
No, it's okay.
It's just marriage number three in the books.
[CHUCKLES] I don't know.
The kids are okay.
I'm trying to give them more stability.
Hmm.
My childhood was a roller coaster.
There was a lot of upheavals.
Tough on my brother and I.
Hey.
You have a brother? - Mm.
- Sorry, did I know that? No.
Tony.
[CHUCKLES] I don't really talk about him much.
He got into a lot of bad stuff and didn't make it out.
I'm sorry to hear that.
You must miss him.
Sometimes.
But honestly, it's simpler not having him in my life.
I know how that sounds.
Anyways, you and Abby are lucky to have each other.
That's all.
My name is Abby, and Dina was my mom.
- She is my mom.
- [CRYING] Lily? I'm sorry.
Honey, hi.
Come over here.
You just gotta think about the fun times you had with her and, you know, how much she loved you, how you made her a grandma.
Ethan and I broke up.
What? Before Grandma died, we had a fight.
And when she did, I texted him and he was like, "Condolences, whatever.
" Shabbat shalom.
[SPEAKING YIDDISH] Havah nagilah.
Could you just stop with the Jewish? I'm adding some color.
What do you care? I don't care.
Do what you want.
You always do.
Okay, what's the deal? Between me and Albert Please don't say the "A" word.
I thought you guys were past that shit.
You're happy now.
You've moved on.
You're with Paul now.
This isn't about Paul or Albert.
Hello.
Of course it's about Albert.
No, it's not.
It's about you and us.
The speed with which you just tossed that aside.
The speed? I've tormented myself over this.
Oh, come on.
It took you like a day, tops.
Oh, my God, take it.
Relax.
I didn't know I was making a choice.
You said it was fine and then you pulled the rug from under me.
Okay, now make a choice.
Me, your friend, or the guy who hurt your friend very, very deeply.
He's not the same guy with me.
He's very different.
He's a very different person.
Bullshit.
People don't change.
Once an asshole, always an asshole.
So what, that's the truth with me? Is that what's going on? 'Cause I'm trying to change.
And I'm thinking, "Wow, I can be happy with someone," which I haven't felt in a really long time.
And you know what you're doing? You're making me feel like I don't deserve to be happy.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] [SOMBER MUSIC] That's one sexy woman, huh? Am I right, everyone? [LOW LAUGHTER] Wow.
Okay, Dad.
So are we more worried about him now or less? Let's just get through today.
Hi.
Nice to see you.
Let me get your jacket, okay? Abby, we'd like to get started.
Yes, please.
Thank you.
Okay.
Okay, everybody, let us begin.
I'd like to start with a passage for the blessing of the mourners.
Those who are worn out and crushed by this mourning, let your hearts consider this.
This is the path that has existed from the time of creation and will exist forever.
She was also a devoted grandmother.
I remember when Lilly was born and my mom held her in her arms for the first time and said to me By the way, I was still in my hospital bed and hadn't even been stitched back up yet.
[LAUGHTER] She said, "Abby", "sweetie, you're a mother.
Maybe now you'll get what it was like for me.
" [LAUGHTER] But you know, her saying that is It's a little self-involved.
[LAUGHS] Looking back.
Oh, God.
[GROANS] Um I loved my mom a lot.
I loved her a lot.
But everybody here knows.
I mean, we all know she could be a real pain in the ass.
I mean, she made a list for the things that she wanted here.
It was a long list, and it was, like, okay, we couldn't get the piano player.
But she wanted Jake to sing a song, which Gosh, she was so controlling.
I mean, okay, like, she hated flying, you know.
So she would just sit on the plane and she would squeeze her eyes shut and she would grip the armrests and I would be like, "Mom, what's happening?" And she would say, "Shh, shh.
" I am keeping the plane up with my prayers.
" [CHUCKLES] She did that.
Don't you remember? And that's that's me.
I I I inherited those bees in my brain that tell me that if I could just do everything perfectly then I could keep the plane from crashing.
You know, I destroyed my marriage publicly and thought I could still give family advice.
And I slept with a prostitute, and then I think it won't affect my career.
Oh, shit, she's going down the rabbit hole.
But whatever, we all have our things.
If she would've just calmed down, if and then I could've calmed down.
You know, maybe I could be better at being happy.
My mother was very good at being happy.
My father, I mean, he knew all of my mother's quirks, and he he loved her anyway, and that's the thing that as crazy as my mother is As crazy as my mother was, she knew she was loved.
And that's the gift.
That is the gift.
Mazel tov.
[LAUGHS] [LAUGHS] [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] [UPBEAT MUSIC] Hey, Daddy.
Oh, good, I'm glad you're eating.
Mm.
Not bad.
- Salmon's a little dry.
- Yeah? Maybe you should go to Zabar's next time.
Your mother loves Zabar's.
Okay.
Dad, I'm gonna be right back, okay? - Okay, go have fun.
- Yeah.
It's a party.
Yeah.
Hey.
- Mom, look, it's Coach.
- Yeah, I know.
I can see that.
That's very cool that he's here.
Will you go find your sister and tell her that she needs to come down and eat something? Come on.
Wow, you here, that is just so Mike of you.
It means a lot.
I'm sorry about your mom, Abs.
Oh, thank you.
How did you Barbara called.
She wishes she could be here.
Yeah, I know.
She's stuck in L.
A.
Trying to keep our business from crumbling so Congratulations on that, by the way.
"Lady Parts," I'm enjoying.
Yes, probably since puberty.
[LAUGHS] I got a million of 'em.
Oh, my God, my eulogy.
It turned into a me-logy.
I can't believe I said all that, like, in front of my kids and Jesus.
Most eulogies are a load of horse shit.
At least yours was memorable.
Memorable, that's That's very generous.
I think the actual scripted line is "it wasn't that bad.
" Did did you give Dad his medication? No.
I thought you were on top of that.
I'm hosting a funeral.
Sorry.
Mike, this is my brother, Max.
Max, this is my my friend, Mike.
Sorry for your loss.
Thanks.
Thank you, Abby's friend, Mike.
Where where did you put his pills? You gave them to Dad last.
They're in the bathroom upstairs next to my old room.
Okay.
Sorry about that.
It's just been a stressful day for all of us.
You don't have to explain.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] I have so much that I need to take care of right now.
Oh, yeah.
Go do your thing.
Okay.
Nice meeting you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Well, Abby's eulogy was It was a slight parade of horrors.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Hey, I didn't mean to imply earlier that Drop it.
We both said our piece.

Change is a bitch, right? Yeah.
Paul made me want to be a better man.
Mm.
I love that movie.
