Good Witch (2015) s04e02 Episode Script

In 4/4, With Emotion

1 - Previously on Good Witch - Ben and I broke up.
- We decided to move on.
- Are you doing OK? - Not yet.
- Just because it didn't happen with him doesn't mean it won't happen with somebody else.
- Martha's right.
- Maybe.
How long do you think our kids can go without getting along? I don't know.
Which one of them is more stubborn? If we fake a truce while we're with our parents, then they can - at least get on with getting married.
- What kind of ring do you want? There is a certain ring that I've always wanted.
- A Merriwick ring? - It's supposed to bring a lasting marriage full of happiness to any bride who wears it.
(SOFT MUSIC) - When did he ask you?! - The night - of your son's wedding.
- Oh! And just yesterday, he gave me this ring.
- Oh! - It really does - look beautiful on you.
- Where on earth did Sam - find such a thing? - Oh He wouldn't tell me exactly, but somehow he knew it was the perfect ring for me.
Well, I'm happy for you.
You and Sam deserve the very best.
Will you be making a formal announcement? I don't think so.
Sam's not really into making a big show of things.
We have told our kids, though.
Oh! Nick and Grace are gonna be brother and sister! Yeah.
They've been friends long enough that we hope it'll - be a pretty easy transition.
- They get along well.
Yeah, most of the time.
We'll see if they can keep that up.
So, I understand congratulations are in order! Oh, no, no, no, no, no! You don't congratulate the bride-to-be.
You say, "best wishes.
" Why can't I say congratulations? You congratulate the groom on obtaining - such a spectacular prize.
- So women are prizes now? I don't make the rules, dear.
I just follow them.
Well, I think Sam is a pretty great prize too, so congratulations! - Thank you! And I agree.
- Can I see the ring? - Oh, of course! - (GASPING) Oh, wow! I am trying not to be jealous right now, and not just because I thought I would get one of these from Ben, but because it's so gorgeous! How are you doing, not being together? I'm OK.
It was time to move on for both of us.
It's just so weird.
You know, I've been out of the dating game for so long, I don't know how to get back in it.
I'm sure you'll find yourself with plenty of options.
Well, I'll believe it when I see it.
Anyway, enough "boo-hoo me" talk.
What can I get for you? Are you still serving that artichoke omelette? No.
It was a special yesterday, but I can make one for you if you'd like.
Thanks.
Ooh! Could you make me one also? It sounds delicious.
- Yeah, me too.
- Look at that! You just sold three.
Maybe you should make it today's special too and see if it brings in more people who wanna try it.
Yeah.
I'll go put it on the board out front.
I wish that I could come up with ideas as easily as you two do.
I'm supposed to speak at the rededication of the Salt Creek Bridge, and I have no idea what I'm gonna say.
I remember when that was first dedicated.
Everybody does! That's because the mayor at the time delivered a speech, which many consider to be - one of his very best.
- Who was the mayor? Martha's husband.
(INAUDIBLE SPEAKING) I don't know where he found his inspiration, but his words left such a lasting impression that people are still quoting them to this day.
So, you have a lot to live up to.
Yes.
Well, thank you for reminding me.
- Oops.
Sorry.
- Hmm! (BIRDS CHIRPING) Here.
Lift your side higher.
I'm trying! You need to lower yours.
- I'm trying! It's heavy.
- I don't know - why we had to do this.
- Because my mom asked us to.
And when we take it in there right now, we are going to pretend like everything is fine.
- I know the rules, Grace.
- Then let's go.
- Here we go! - Oh, great! You can put it right there.
- OK.
- Yeah.
- You still got a hold? - Yeah.
Thank you.
That looks really nice.
- Yeah.
- Good, 'cause my best piano-moving days are behind me.
Thanks.
You know, it was just gathering dust in a back room, and I thought it'd be nice to have music in here for a change.
Well, let's see how it sounds.
Sam, I didn't know you played piano! Ah, just enough so people think I'm good.
I've gotta go study for my German test, - so I'll see you later.
- Bye.
Thank you.
- Did I hear music in here? - You did! - Sam's pretty good, huh? - Well, why don't you sit down and play some more? I bet Cassie especially would love that.
(CHUCKLING) Oh, happy to.
Oh! What's in there? Oh, wow.
- Look at all that.
- These are songs from my day.
"Words and Music by Jacob Hayward.
" - Wait.
Who's Jacob Hayward? - He was a songwriter in the 1930s.
He actually lived in Middleton - near the end of his life.
- Just as popular as Cole Porter, the Gershwins, - or Irving Berlin.
- Yeah.
Hayward's songs really affected people in personal and unique ways.
Wait.
This one's hand-written.
Oh.
That looks like an original piece - Hmm.
- by Jacob Hayward.
Wow.
Look, it's got his initials here.
Wait.
Do you think that he might've stayed at Grey House? Maybe he even wrote that song right here.
It doesn't have any lyrics to the tune.
No title.
I know.
Let's just see how it goes in the key of F.
That's nice.
- Yeah.
- You know, I'm pretty sure I know all of Haywood's songs, but I've never heard that one before.
Yeah, me neither.
Hmm.
Maybe it never got recorded.
It'd be a shame.
It'd make a nice love song.
I don't know if I hear a love song, exactly.
I guess different people can hear the same song - in different ways.
- Music is mysterious that way.
It really is.
"Play it again, Sam.
" (CHUCKLING) (THEME MUSIC) (SAM HUMMING) Are you gonna be humming that song all day? I might be.
I like it.
Nick was saying he's getting ready - for that German test tomorrow.
- Yeah.
He's actually doing - really well in that class.
- I was actually at the library yesterday and I saw they had a couple of language CDs.
You might wanna let him know.
He could check them out.
- I will.
Thanks.
- Yeah.
Oh, Grace? I noticed the game closet upstairs is a bit of a mess.
That's true.
Gramp and I tried to play Life the other day and it was half Monopoly.
Would you mind cleaning it up and putting things - back in the right boxes? - Sure.
Thanks.
Thanks for helping bring that piano out.
Oh yeah.
Well, any time you need a strong man, - you know who to call.
- Yes, I do.
(CHUCKLING) Ahem! OK.
Uh Is this what it's gonna be like now that you're engaged? - Yeah, I think so.
- Pretty much.
Well.
Ahem.
I just hope no one writes a song about that.
Have a great day.
Here you go.
That artichoke omelette - was fantastic.
- Oh, I'm so glad you liked it.
I was just coming from a deposition.
I'm not sure I would've come in if I hadn't seen the sign outside but, um - I'm glad that I did.
- So I'm really glad I put that sign out there then.
Thank you.
- What are you doing?! - Uh, working? That guy was interested in you! - Who? - What? You couldn't tell by the way he was looking at you? Uh, he was barely looking at me.
So you're not gonna do anything about it? Abigail, just because a man speaks to a woman doesn't mean he's flirting with her.
Well, that's how it works for me.
(BIRDS CHIRPING) Ooh! How did we manage to get so much stuff crammed in this tiny space? I don't know.
I guess it just filled up over the years.
But it'll be good to try to put things back the way they were.
- Hmm.
- Sorry.
I didn't realize you guys were in here.
George said I could come up and look for my library card in here.
- Uh, with the games? - Yeah.
Grace and I used it as a get-out-of-jail-free card because I'm the one who's missing.
We played that game like, over a year ago.
And how often do I need to go to the library? My dad told me about the language CDs.
- Thank you.
- Oh.
Sure.
Maybe you wanna help Grace reorganize while you're looking for it? Oh, I can, uh, probably get all the work done by myself.
Oh, but it'll go so much faster with two.
I I can help out.
Sure.
Great.
I'll get out of your way then.
OK.
So I'll start working on the top shelves, and you can go working on the bottom.
Whatever.
Wait.
Why do you get to decide who does what? - Because what does it matter? - Because maybe one shelf is going - to be easier than the other.
- Fine.
Here.
We'll pick a card, and whoever gets the highest can choose which shelves they want to do.
OK - OK.
Well, let me pick.
- Fine.
Two of clubs.
OK, look.
I really don't care who does which shelf, but just choose one.
Fine.
Since you wanted the top, I'll take the top.
- Fine.
- Unless you only said you wanted the top to make me think that's what you wanted - so I'd fight for it.
- Then you can have the bottom.
Or maybe you knew I'd want the one you wanted so you pretended to want the one you didn't want so I would want the one I only thought you wanted.
- So take the top.
- Thank you.
I will.
Oh I guess you picked the wrong one.
- What are you doing? - Oh, some of the herbs and spices got mixed up.
I'm just putting them back - where I can find them.
- Oh, I can do that.
- Oh, well - No, seriously.
I'm sure you have more important things to do.
All right.
I guess I can find out what George needs.
- Oh.
Is he here? - Hi, George! Ah, Cassie! Do you have some springs that will fit on screen doors? Abigail asked me to fix the one at the back of the house that keeps slamming.
Oh.
That's one of those sounds of life I guess I've just gotten used to.
Well, apparently other people hear things differently, so Well, there is a box of hardware odds and ends over there if you'd like to take a look.
- Great.
Thanks.
- Sure.
(GEORGE HUMMING) That's a nice song.
Oh.
I didn't even realize I was humming.
Did you find what you were looking for? No, which is odd because you usually have what everybody needs.
- Can't win 'em all.
- Well, I'll see you at home.
All right.
Oh, Sam invited me to dinner, so I'll probably be home after that.
OK.
I guess I'll know when you come in - when that screen door slams.
- I'll try not to make - too much noise.
- (BOTH CHUCKLING) (SOFT MUSIC) These are the specials off the top.
Your server will be with you in a minute.
- There's the happy couple! - Right now, we are only the hungry couple.
- So how about a table for two? - Right this way.
I'm starving.
- Oh, Stephanie! Hey! - Oh, hey! Are you here on a date? No.
I was here to meet Abigail for a drink, but she can't make it, which is fine.
I have lots of errands to run.
- We'll see you later.
- See you.
- Bye.
- Excuse me.
I couldn't tell if you were waiting for someone, or if you were Yeah.
I was, but she can't make it.
Well, if you'd like to join me and the gang from the fire station, there's room at our table.
No.
That reminds me, I wanted to stop at the hardware store and pick up a new garden hose.
Thanks for the offer! Thanks.
You got a new guitar player, and she's playing the Haywood song.
- Yeah.
It's her first night.
- Oh.
I always like it when you have music here.
I aim to please.
(ALL CHUCKLING) So how long has your car been running slowly? Oh, is there something wrong with it? It's just on the way here, it wasn't accelerating - as quickly as it could.
- Hmm.
Well, maybe that's because I'm not in as big of a hurry as you are.
I think if you'd let me replace your fuel filter, you could tell the difference.
It's no bother.
Hello, Courtney.
Hey.
Is Grace around? Yes.
She is upstairs, sorting through games with Nick.
- Nick is here? - Yes.
Uh never mind.
We've been avoiding each other ever since he broke up with me.
Oh.
Well, when I see him, I'll be sure to tell him how great you looked.
Make sure that you do.
- Courtney.
- Hey.
- Hi.
You here to see Grace? - Uh I was, - but she's with Nick.
- Oh.
Yeah.
But, I'm glad you stopped by.
I saw a book and it reminded me of you.
It's about a girl who has to stay at the hospital, but she gets through it with the help of a monster named Courage.
It's got beautiful artwork inside.
Oh, it looks great.
Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- I'll see you later.
OK.
So, how was your date with Sam? - It was good.
- What'd you guys talk about? Um date things? So nothing special? No.
We had a really nice time just being together.
Well, if that's all you want out of life How did four different puzzles get into two boxes? I don't know, but I can't tell if this is the horse or the candy shop.
There isn't a puzzle of a horse in a candy shop, is there? - No.
- Well, there should be.
You're not even looking at the pieces.
- Hmm? - How are you getting these all right? It's easy.
See, these pieces are thicker than the other ones.
The pieces for the horse are smaller than the ones for the candy shop.
Oh, so you're not magic.
No.
Sometimes I wonder.
I mean, you never freak out if we have a pop quiz, almost like you know they're gonna happen.
- I'll let you in on a secret.
- I study.
Are you telling me I could have that power too? Yep.
And you wouldn't even need a wand.
- I still might want a wand.
- I know.
Wands are really cool, right? OK.
I think I'm done with my half.
- Already? - Yeah.
I haven't even found my library card yet.
- How did that get there?! - Oh, it must have been magic.
(HUMMING) Hello, Sam.
Good morning.
Do you know anywhere that sells roses? I have dozens.
- I just need one.
- But I said, "I have dozens.
" I just want Cassie to know I was thinking about her.
Well, if you ask me, a guy should do more thinking than that, but OK.
(HUMMING) You know what? You're right.
Make it a dozen.
I might have to start calling you Mr.
Romance.
You know, I'm actually a doctor.
I'm not gonna call you Dr.
Romance.
- No.
That'd be creepy.
- Mm-hmm.
(SAXOPHONE MUSIC) Hi, Martha.
(SCREAMING) Oh! Sam, I am so sorry.
I was just coming from Salt Creek Bridge, where I finally might've gotten some inspiration - for the rededication.
- Well, I'm sure the bridge will - appreciate a pat on the back.
- Well, I just hope that what I've come up with will compare favourably to the speech my husband gave.
Wow.
This song sure is getting to be popular.
Hmm? Oh! Yes.
You know, I'm hardly listening.
When I'm reading my speech to myself, all I can hear is my internal voice.
Oh, yeah.
When do you have to give that? Too soon.
Ah, the date is approaching like a Mack truck.
Oh, I'm glad you said that.
I need to stop by the auto parts store and get a fuel filter for Cassie's car.
Oh, my goodness! Flowers and you're fixing her car? - Girl's gotta drive.
- Yes right over that bridge, which deserves far greater eloquence than what I've come up with in my first draft.
Well, let's just hope that inspiration hits me before that truck does.
- All right.
I'll see you later.
- Mm-hmm! Grace, did you and Nick finish sorting through the game closet? I did.
I finished my half, but Nick still has a few more things to do.
How did you finish your job so quickly? I don't know.
I guess we Merriwick just know how to make things happen the way we want them to.
Good for you.
Well, um, I wanted you to work together.
It's not my fault that he's not as good at puzzle-sorting as I am.
Hmm.
All done! Don't you just love it when you can sit back and appreciate the way your work comes together? Yeah.
Especially after watching every piece of the puzzle - fall into place.
- George! You still working this late? Yeah.
I noticed the baseboards outside Abigail's room needed sanding, so I decided to touch up the whole house.
- That's a lot of baseboards.
- Yeah, and they're not gonna sand themselves, so I decided I'd get to bed so I can get up early.
Goodnight.
- (ABIGAIL): Night.
- (GRACE): Night.
You can't make baseboards sand themselves, can you? No but that'd be better than any card trick I've ever done.
Just don't let anyone know your secrets.
- This one? - Yeah.
Oh, Sam! There you are.
I have an emergency.
- Are you hurt? - What? Oh, no, no, no, no! It's something much more serious than that.
It's about the bridge dedication.
- Ah.
- I want to highlight someone who drives across that bridge every day and I thought, "Who better than our own good doctor who takes that route on the way to the hospital?" A lot of people drive across that bridge every day.
Yes, well but none of them are as eloquent as you.
Ah, so you're using flattery.
Well, go on! Oh! Uh well you would be in very distinguished company! I've lined up also two state senators and I've left word for the governor.
Plus, the architect of the bridge and the son of the man who poured the very first concrete pillar.
Hmm.
That's a lot of speakers.
It might not leave - much time for you.
- Well, as you know, I've never been one for the spotlight.
I appreciate the offer, but I'm going to pass.
But how am I gonna fill those minutes? I guess you're just gonna have to put yourself - right back in that spotlight! - Well, at this rate, I'll be standing up there without anything to say! At least the lighting will be good.
Fine.
Thank you for being of absolutely no help whatsoever.
- I do what I can.
- Hmm! So I saw Sam working on your car last night.
Yeah.
He decided that's something he wanted to do.
And yesterday he came in and bought you a dozen roses.
It was nice to know he was thinking about me.
It seems like you're on his mind a lot, more so than usual.
Well, you know, we are engaged.
Yeah.
That changes things, doesn't it? Yeah.
So far, it's been pretty good.
If you say so.
I thought we were getting this to share.
Yeah, except you ordered it.
You can help yourself! I don't really like cheesecake.
Oh.
You should have said something.
OK.
If you ladies need anything else, Jennifer will take care of you.
I'm going shopping for something to wear on my date tomorrow night.
- You have a date? - With who?! A tennis pro.
He came in for a protein shake.
We started talking and then he just asked me out.
Just like that lawyer who was in here the other day.
And there was a fireman coming onto you at Liam's.
Yeah I guess that was what was happening.
Anyway, I'm just happy I figured it out in time - to say yes to this one.
- Have a good time.
Oh, I plan to.
What? Didn't you date a lawyer, a fireman and a tennis pro? I've dated lots of guys.
So it's just a coincidence that three men with those same jobs wanna go out with Stephanie at the same time? I can't control what men do.
Are you sure you don't want any of this? It's really good.
Tonight? Oh you mean right now! Well, I might be able to make that work if I can get Tara to close for me.
- Yeah! - Yeah.
I'll meet you there.
I can't wait to see you either.
Sam wants to meet me for dinner.
- Awesome! Have a good time.
- Thanks.
Um there were a couple of things I wanted to finish before I go - Oh, I can get things done.
- OK.
Oh, by the way, should Himalayan pink salt go under H, P, or S? - Go where? - I decided to alphabetize all the spices after I separated them from the herbs.
Oh.
Well, all I needed was for them not to be mixed together.
I know, but this way, everything's easier to find.
Unless it's Himalayan pink salt.
Well, I will find the right place for that.
- Good.
Have fun at dinner.
- Thank you! (DOORBELL RINGING) What's going on? My mom wants us to take some of the toys that we don't need to the hospital.
Can't you do that yourself? I could, except my mom said, "Would you and Nick?" So Fine.
- Tomorrow after school? - Yeah.
It'll be fun.
(SIGHING) - There you are! - Hi.
Right on time.
I saved you a spot and ordered a couple of Belgian ales.
- Oh.
I was thinking white wine.
- Well, I can - get you one of those instead.
- No, no.
- That's fine.
This is good.
- Hey, Cassie.
- Hi.
- Can I get you a table? Um maybe, but I think we might wanna dance first, - before we get settled in.
- Oh, excuse me.
We're dancing.
Yeah, go for it.
Ah When did they start having dancing in here? I don't know, but I'm glad they do.
- Mm-hmm.
- Maybe we should hire these guys to play our wedding reception.
I didn't realize you were thinking that far ahead.
Well, we might as well, so the date doesn't get here too fast.
Except, um we don't have one yet.
Maybe we should be thinking about that too.
(BOTH CHUCKLING) - Hello, Stephanie.
- Oh, hey! Do you have any chrysanthemums? I'm gonna put them - on the tables at the Bistro.
- Ooh! That'll make the place - look bright and romantic.
- Oh, well I guess I'm just in a bright and romantic mood.
- They're in the back.
- OK.
- Stephanie! - Carl! I guess this is going to ruin the surprise, but I came in here to get flowers for you, for our date tonight.
Well, I will try and act like I don't know they're coming.
I'd appreciate that.
Here you go! And I have plenty, so if you need mo Oh.
Hi.
Abigail, hello.
Do you two know each other? Abigail and I dated a couple times.
Did we? I mean, I guess we did.
I've been trying to move up the tennis rankings since then.
In fact, actually, those protein shakes you started serving are part of my training diet.
Protein shakes.
You mean the ones that Abigail suggested I start serving in order to get more people into the Bistro? There are plenty of reasons to come into the Bistro.
Right.
Like having an artichoke omelette.
Something else you told me to start serving.
And I was there to meet you at the Brewery that night that I met the fireman.
Wait.
Are you dating a fireman? No, but I bet you Abigail did.
OK, so I dated that guy once or twice.
- Seven times.
- OK.
You know what? You can cancel our date.
And if you decide to send any more of your exes my way, you can tell them I'm not interested.
Can I get some tulips? Why? She just canceled your date.
Yeah, but I'm having lunch with my mother, so - Thank you so much.
- Thank you! Have a nice day.
Hello, Martha! Forget the small talk.
I'm running out of time.
I'm looking for inspiration for my speech, and since you always seem to lead me to the exact thing that I need - Where is it? - Well, what is it you're looking for? Well, how should I know? That's why I came to you.
It's hard for one person to know what inspires another.
Oh, I see.
So that's how you're gonna play this, is it? All right.
Fine.
Oh! How about this? - Something to light my way? - Martha Oh, but you're smiling, so maybe it's the right colour, just not the right thing.
Um oh! How about this Ecuadorian night cream? Really? Are you my inspiration? Oh, goodness.
I hope not.
It's got royal bee jelly in it, and anything bees makes my face break out like a patchwork quilt.
Um Let me see.
Oh! How about this? Uh, or maybe whatever this is? Now, don't play games with me! I need inspiration and I need it now! Martha, I wish I could be of more help, but Ugh! Honestly! Well, just forget it then.
You're of absolutely no help to me whatsoever.
What's that? Oh.
What is that doing there? It's pink Himalayan salt.
It's usually inside with the spices.
Is that the healthier than regular stuff? - It is much better.
- Well, Tom is supposed to be cutting down.
So, I'll just assume that this is a gift, since the rest of my trip was a complete wash-out.
Where do these go? Just taking it down to the kids' ward.
Can't we just leave these at the front? It's just at the bottom of the stairs.
Grace! - Courtney! - Hey! What are you doing here? I was just reading this book to some of the kids.
- Well, Nick and I were just - Nick's here? Courtney? Hey.
Hey.
So Yeah.
I'm gonna go.
Wait.
Courtney.
Courtney, wait! What? There's something I wanna say to you.
Something you wanna say to me now? I think the time to have said something is when you decided you wanted to break up with me, and you said let me think.
Nothing! I know.
You're right, and I'm sorry.
Uh-huh.
Look the way things ended between us I don't blame you if you hate me.
I screwed up.
You're an amazing person and you deserved better from me.
I really like you.
It's just I wasn't ready to get more serious.
And that was my problem, not yours.
And I should have told you that straight up before I said - anything to anybody else.
- Yeah, you should've.
(SIGHING) But at least you're saying it now.
I'm really sorry for everything.
Ahem.
That was good, what you said.
I mean, that was good.
Yeah.
That's exactly what I would've said if I had the chance to back then but I didn't, because you got in the middle of it and messed it all up.
Let's just drop these off and go.
(GRACE SIGHING) Oh.
What are you doing here? Trying to dump another one - of your exes on me? - No.
I came to explain.
What? How I need someone like you to set me up because I can't get a guy to like me on my own? OK.
First of all, each of those guys did like you.
I may have done some things to get them to notice you, but they're the ones who wanted to ask you out.
Right, because I'm so irresistible.
I was counting on the fact that you were.
Look, I know it's hard, but after a breakup, what you need to do is get right back up on the horse.
Unless you just broke up with a cowboy because that would just bring up bad memories.
I know what you were trying to do, and well, it was actually kind of nice.
See? I can do that sometimes.
And it does feel good to know that there are options out there when I'm ready.
You're gonna have no trouble being with whoever you want.
- Thanks.
- Excuse me, I was wondering if you're going to be here at the restaurant - later tonight? - Oh um It's really sweet of you to ask, but, um, I'm just not looking to be with anyone right now, so Oh, no.
I'm the repairman for the ice machine.
I just wanted to bring the parts back later, - and get you running again.
- Oh Right.
Ice.
- You know what? Tonight is great.
- Great.
See you then.
- I'm gonna see you then! - Yup.
Oh! I was just about to order - without you.
- Well, you might as well.
I don't think I'll be eating a thing.
Oh, here.
I found this at Cassie's.
It's so your heart doesn't explode.
Thanks.
Why is it pink? Apparently, it's healthier that way.
This makes me think about the time I dedicated - the Salt Creek Bridge.
- Yes, which is what has been on my mind all week.
I'm supposed to rededicate it this weekend.
Really? Why didn't you mention that to me? Because I wanted to wait until I could come up with something that was as memorable as what you said.
When I was younger, I used to think that bridges were built for going away, but now I know that what they're really meant for is coming home.
Now, you see? How on earth am I supposed to come up with something as good as that? Because you already did.
Martha, I got that line from you! I don't remember ever being that wise and sentimental.
We were driving back from a long weekend away.
What you said gave me my theme.
I built my entire speech around that.
So I was your inspiration? Was, are and always will be.
Well then, maybe I still have it in me! Now I probably won't be very good company, but now that I'm bursting with brilliance, I've gotta write it all down.
I am sure that whatever you say will be remembered for years to come.
Oh, I just feel badly that no one will remember your speech once they hear mine.
Are we out of lavender mint tea already? No, I moved it.
I thought anything mint should go with the candies.
- Oh - Hi, Sam.
- Hello! Hey.
- Hi.
I was just on my way back to the office.
Thought I'd stop in and find out, are we going with a sit-down dinner or a buffet? - For our wedding? - I know we already decided on that jazz trio for the music, and I was thinking, "Maybe they could play through dinner.
" And then I realized, we haven't even talked about what we're having yet.
Oh.
Well, I didn't know you'd wanted to.
Well, yeah.
Of course.
Let's start thinking - about the options.
- Of course.
Sam's already making plans? Yeah, I guess he is.
Except it's hard to tell if what he's doing is what you want.
Hmm.
Yeah, I'm not sure that it is.
Well, you know, a good marriage takes great communication, but you can't expect the other person to just know what you want.
You actually have to tell them.
- Well, that's good advice.
- It is.
And it's exactly what you told me right before I married Brandon.
I guess I did say that.
Oh, and I put the tea back in the right place, exactly the way you wanted it.
- Hi, Mom.
- Hi.
Did you get those games over to the hospital? We did.
We ran into Courtney.
Really? How did Nick do with that? He said some good things.
A lot of good things.
Well, sometimes that happens when we give people a chance.
And I guess that's what I should've done in the first place, right? I know you were just trying to help two people that you care about very much.
Yeah, except you would have managed to do all of that without everything blowing up in your face.
How are you supposed to know when to say things out loud and when to say nothing at all? It's just something that comes with experience and experience comes with time.
There's no way to make it come any faster? Impatience is something that all the young Merriwicks have struggled with, along with knowing the difference between what we can do and whether or not we should do it.
OK, that was a regular deck of cards and Nick picked the shelf himself.
Hmm.
OK.
I might've Merriwicked things up a little to make sure that things turned out the way that I wanted them to.
- That is the easier way, isn't it? - Easier than what? Than doing the real work.
So let's make sure we both remember when we need to do that.
Yeah.
Thanks, Mom.
(SIGHING) - Oh, hey! - Hi.
I was just gonna slap a little paint on these baseboards - if I'm not in your way.
- Oh, no.
That's fine.
Except, you know what? I actually don't need that done.
Are you sure? Yeah.
Yeah, I I like the way they look.
I want them to stay that way.
Oh.
I guess I should have asked before I spent so much time down there.
- And I should have told you.
- Oh, that's OK.
I found 43 cents behind the couches, so I came out ahead.
- Thanks.
- Hey, Sam.
Hi, George.
So, I got some options for dates.
Oh, Sam, you don't have to do that.
I just thought we should start nailing things down.
Sam I can't wait to get married.
I'm looking forward to it more than I can say.
But I don't know why we have to make all these decisions right now.
Just trying to stay ahead of the curve.
Except you haven't asked me what I want, and I haven't told you.
That's true.
Both those things are true.
I just want things to start out right this time.
Well, everything's off to a pretty great start.
I want our marriage to be different.
With Linda I was hardly involved at all.
She made most of the decisions, and I just kind of went along.
I don't even remember helping with any of the planning.
I just showed up in a tux and said, "I do.
" OK.
So this time, we'll make all those decisions together.
But I don't think that we have to set anything in stone right now.
I want to be able to walk past a field of flowers and say, "That's the exact colour I want.
" Or stumble upon a hidden beach and decide, "This is where we should say our vows.
" I like that.
We can do that.
There is one thing that I am ready to decide right now.
- Hmm.
- Hmm.
I want this to be the song that's played at our ceremony.
- Me too.
- Hmm.
Well, well.
I thought you two might play well together.
Ah, yes, we do.
All it takes is a little practice.
(DOORBELL RINGING) I'll get it.
Dad.
