Good Witch (2015) s05e02 Episode Script

The Forever Tree, Pt. 2

1 Previously on Good Witch There's nothing I wouldn't do for you.
You keep talking like that and I might have to marry you.
How's tomorrow? I happen to have some time on my schedule.
The mayor of Blairsville never complains.
- You're the mayor.
- Donovan Davenport.
- Sam, this is Vincent.
- The foster brother.
A lot of things keep going wrong.
- It's been eaten by moths.
- Catherine Merriwick and her husband Douglas got married under the Forever Tree.
- Where is it? - The tree has been lost to the ages.
- It's out there, I'll find it.
- When the time is right, the Forever Tree will reveal itself.
[CHUCKLING.]
You caught me.
And I'm glad I did.
I just have one more thing I need to work out - for the wedding.
- I'd be happy to help.
You have always been there for Grace and me.
I don't know what we would do without you.
- We're family.
- Yeah, we are.
And I'd be honoured if you'd walk me down the aisle.
Cassie that means a lot to me.
Is that a yes? It sure is.
Aww.
- Go, go, go! Go, go! - Run! - Nice! - Come on, you got it! Watch the ball all the way until it hits your bat.
OK? You can do it, buddy.
- Oh oh.
- Hey, good swing! Good swing.
- Nice try! - I'm never gonna hit it! Hey buddy.
Buddy, buddy.
I know it's frustrating.
The more you practice, the better you're gonna get.
- OK.
- OK? Come on, buddy.
Let's make that ball scared of you.
Come on, you can do this one! - Yeah! - Way to go, Michael! Yeah! Run, run, run! - Good one! - Good job! That's a home run if I've ever seen one! He did it! Oh.
- [EXHALING HEAVILY.]
- Ahem.
OK, let's keep going! [SOFT MUSIC.]
The flowers look great.
Clearly, this mayor slash florist multi-tasking thing isn't a problem.
I guess you could say that I am formidable.
I suppose.
- Stephanie.
- Hi.
I've tried my hand, now, at the Bell, Book & Candle and at the flower shop, but neither has really suited Martha 2.
0.
[CHUCKLING.]
So, while I'm waiting to be reinstated as mayor, perhaps I could help you at the Bistro.
Oh uh, you know, I would love that - Oh! - but we are all staffed up.
Oh.
Well pity, really.
I do know my way around a kitchen.
Bless you.
Ah, ah.
Well, finding the forever tree for Cassie is a lovely gesture.
I wish I knew where it was.
I wish you did too, Reverend.
I'm sure Cassie would have loved to carry on the Merriwick tradition of carving our initials in the trunk.
Bless you.
Ahem.
There's an awful lot of hay around here.
I'm gonna prescribe you an antihistamine.
Perhaps I'll step outside to get some air - before we start the rehearsal.
- OK.
[SIGHING.]
Still no word from Vincent? - Nothing.
I called and texted.
- Hmm.
Well, hopefully he'll get here in time for the dinner.
- We should get started.
- The barbecue smells great.
Can we hurry up with the rehearsal? You don't hurry a bride.
Fine.
I'm gonna go grab a drumstick.
No, wait.
We're just about to get started.
Oh Reverend, you don't look so good.
I'm really sorry.
Hopefully, I'll be fine by tomorrow.
You know, let's just get you home, on that antihistamine.
Oh, all right.
You're good.
So much for the rehearsal.
- Then let's eat! - Rehearsal or not, it's going to be a beautiful wedding.
Thanks, George.
- Come on.
Let's go.
- OK.
Barbecue.
Attention! Yoo-hoo! I just wanted to say a few words about Sam - and our beloved Cassie.
- Aw.
I am just so thrilled I'm sorry.
I'm going to need just a few moments.
Aw Cassie and Sam.
Laurie sends her love and wishes she could be here, and I'm so happy for both of you.
But really, Nick is the luckiest person here, because he gets to have Cassie as a step-mom, and she is the best step-mom a kid could ever ask for.
I never thought I'd see my dad smile so much.
- [CHUCKLING.]
- It's a little annoying but also pretty great.
Thanks, Cassie.
Cassie is Well, she's just the I wasn't sure about Sam when he first arrived.
And now I'm still not sure of him.
Just kiddin', Doc.
You're a lucky guy.
So is Cassie.
I wish you both nothing but the best.
Cassie, you always find the joy in everything.
And I'm really happy that now you and Sam will find that joy together.
Well, tomorrow wouldn't be the same if we couldn't share it - with all of you.
- But no matter how much we love you, we're going on the honeymoon alone.
[LAUGHING.]
[SOFT MUSIC.]
[APPLAUSE.]
[THEME MUSIC.]
[UPBEAT INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC.]
Cassie, I've been thinking about your dress problem.
Now, I know a seamstress who can work magic - with a sewing machine.
- And I appreciate that, Martha, but it would take magic to fix a moth-eaten dress over night, so yeah, I've actually found a dress in my closet - that I can wear.
- Cassie, you could wear a potato sack and you would look beautiful.
She's not wrong.
[NEIGHING.]
[NEIGHING.]
It's OK.
Easy, boy.
I know.
I know.
I'm on edge too.
Shh.
Shh.
Hey! I wouldn't get too close if I were you.
[NEIGHING.]
[NEIGHING.]
[SIGHING.]
Are you OK? - [SIGHING.]
- I'm not sure.
All the wedding hiccups: the cake topper melting, the dress getting eaten by moths, the reverend getting sick, I I think that I'm the one making those things happen.
And why would you think that? You know I like Sam, right? I think that he's great, and I think that you two are amazing together.
I do.
But But I, um I've been thinking about Dad a lot lately and it just sort of hit me that you're about to be married to someone that isn't him.
Oh, Grace Look, I didn't I didn't mean for it to happen.
Mom, I didn't.
I just think that all of this negative energy that I've been putting out has affected the wedding.
Honey, thinking about your dad is the very opposite of negative.
It's about the most wonderful thing you could do.
Believe me, you are not causing anything bad to happen.
Are you sure? I'm positive.
So, why don't I go make us some tea, and we can sit and talk about this? Yeah, I'd like that.
[SOFT MUSIC.]
Vincent cleared out his room.
He's definitely gone.
Hmm.
I had a feeling.
Yeah, I did too.
I overheard him on the phone earlier, sounded like he may have lost the contract to sail - Jonathan Gardiner's boats.
- That's not a reason to leave.
Yeah, for Vincent, I think it's the only reason.
- Hmm.
- I'm gonna try to track him down, see if I can convince him to come back.
- Thanks, Sam.
- You never have to thank me.
- I should get this up to Grace.
- How is she? Uh she misses her dad.
Well, I hope she knows I'd never try to replace him.
Yeah, she knows that.
She thinks you're wonderful.
We both do.
Anything else I can do for you before I head out? Uh just keep being there for both of us.
Always.
[SOFT MUSIC.]
Hi, Dad.
You guys are still here? You're gonna miss the flight of the fireflies.
OK.
I think we're ready.
I've got the mini champagnes, the blanket and the snakebite kit.
- Snakebite kit?! - It's outside in the woods.
Never hurts to be prepared.
And I've got two sweatshirts, - temperature's supposed to drop.
- Cold, snake-filled woods.
Are we sure we wanna do this? I saw some hot chocolate with the little marshmallows in the kitchen.
Dad, it's five minutes to the woods.
It's something Mom was really looking forward to, right? - Well - You know oh, gosh.
I just remembered that I have to steam my dress.
And it's a big day for everyone tomorrow, - especially you.
- Yeah.
Don't you worry about me, Sam.
I'm fine.
What? You heard her, she's fine.
Want some hot chocolate? [SIGHING.]
I got your favourite, orange camomile.
[SIGHING.]
You went to Mayor Davenport's office? No! No, no, no, no, no, no! Meetings such as these require neutral ground.
Walk me through what happened, step by step.
I'd love to, Martha, but it's confidential information between mayors.
- [SIGHING.]
- At this rate, my house is gonna stay in Blairsville forever.
For future reference, tact and diplomacy should be your cornerstones.
Remember, meeting on a neutral playing field is the only way to keep your opponent from automatically gaining the upper hand.
Oh, and whatever you do, do not escalate the situation.
Oh, I'm sorry.
Were you done? Apparently.
[VIDEO GAME SOUND EFFECTS.]
Yes! We did it! You wanna play another round? - Of course.
- Cool.
I'll get us some refills.
You two look like you're having fun.
Oh, Lindsay's great.
I like her a lot.
- Spill.
- I was supposed to tell her something, but I ended up asking her out.
- What didn't you tell her? - I said I was waiting for my college acceptance letters, but I didn't even send in my applications.
You told me you applied for early decision.
- But you didn't apply at all? - Lindsay, I You know what? It's getting late.
[SIGHING.]
- Wait! I It's OK, Nick.
I gotta go.
I [SOFT MUSIC.]
Cassie's worried about you.
There's nothing to worry about.
You're sitting in an empty baseball field.
- At night.
- Hmph.
How'd you know I was here? You said baseball was your thing.
Took a shot.
[SAM SIGHING.]
Why'd you disappear? That's something the old Vincent would have done.
Jonathan Gardiner found someone else to sail his yachts.
You think not having a job changes how people look at you? I know it does.
Not the ones that care about you.
I just wanted to prove myself to Cassie.
Cassie's the one person you don't have to prove yourself to.
You don't think she'll be disappointed? Only if you're not at the wedding.
Still open? Yes, I am.
Let me guess: 12 orange juices.
[CHUCKLING.]
Actually, a coffee and a maple bacon donut.
You know, I, uh saw you coaching this morning.
You're really great with those kids.
Thanks.
You know, they're great too, when they're not dancing in the outfield.
Isn't that what baseball needs, more dancing? How are you not the commissioner? So how come you didn't come say hi? Oh! Uh, well I actually saw you hugging your girlfriend, - and I didn't want to interrupt.
- What?! That's Michael's mom.
She was actually just thanking me for helping him hit the ball.
So, not your girlfriend? No.
'Cause, uh, I actually was going to ask you if you wanted to get some coffee sometime.
I'd love to, but I'm just kind of dealing with some things - right now.
- Oh! - Yeah.
- Then we never have to mention this again, and I will see you on game day for orange juice.
Thanks.
- I'll see you then.
- Yeah.
See you.
[CRICKETS CHIRPING.]
- Hi, Mom.
- Hmmm Hey.
I forget how beautiful this is.
Yeah.
I miss coming out here.
Used to be yours and Daddy's favourite place.
You guys would sit out here for hours and look up at those stars.
Do you remember when you fell in? [CASSIE CHUCKLING.]
He splashed us, right? Yeah, and then you started crying.
I did? Ten seconds later, you were laughing your head off.
Hmm Daddy had the best laugh.
Mhm.
And it always made you laugh.
[GENTLE MUSIC.]
I really miss him.
Me too.
Aww You see that really bright star up there? [BOTH CHUCKLING.]
It's like it wants us to notice it.
It wants you to notice it.
No matter where you are in your life, no matter what you're doing, you can always look up at that star and know that your dad is watching over you.
And you.
Your dad will always be with both of us.
All he ever wanted was for us to be happy.
I, uh I think that he would want you to marry Sam.
So do I, Mom.
Well, you really are your father's daughter.
[GRACE CHUCKLING.]
My mother's not too bad either.
[BOTH CHUCKLING.]
Tried calling Vincent, but it went straight to voicemail.
Hmm Not surprised.
Well, at least, you've still got the best father-in-law - in the world.
Hahaha! - Morning! Is everyone excited for today? - Hmm! What's today? - Oh, I don't know.
It's your wedding.
[GRACE CHUCKLING.]
Hey, did you try on your backup dress yet? - Yeah, it's perfect.
- So are you.
You two are so sweet you give me a toothache.
You should try it with Mom sometime.
- I heard my name.
- Ah, could you make me a bagel? I have every morning for the past 30 years.
Well, this is great.
Now, the handle is stripped.
I just got a box of antique hardware at the Bell, Book & Candle; you could take your pick.
Well, beautiful and handy.
Well, I like to be prepared for any emergency.
Shall we? Yeah, as soon as I get my bagel.
Don't keep the bride out too long.
Alright.
Actually, Dad's doing me a favour.
It gives me time to take one last look for the Forever Tree.
If you can find that tree, maybe I can fix Mom's dress.
I'll be back.
Well, check the neighbours' houses.
[PHONE RINGING.]
What do you mean, it's only mine? Oh, you're on with your plumber.
I'll wait.
I'll call you right back.
How did you know that? You know how our new county line puts Martha's house in Blairsville? Turns out it also puts part of your waterline in Middleton.
You shut off my water.
I guess I'm more formidable than you thought.
You're so proud of yourself.
- Isn't it adorable? - It's extortion.
No, it's politics.
[DOORBELL RINGING.]
Hey-hey-hey.
I-I was hoping to see you again.
I just came to bring Cassie her phone.
She left it at the ranch.
Um, sorry I lied about the whole college thing.
I'm sorry you thought you had to.
I just got to level 5 on Destination.
You wanna play? Playing games is what started this whole thing.
Good luck, Nick.
No, none of these are quite right.
Hmm Uh, there's another box underneath.
Well, OK.
Oh You've got some classics here.
Oh, I love that song.
Yeah.
So does Jennifer.
It was our wedding song.
I used to play it for her on this old guitar.
Just like that one.
Ah.
Hmm.
- Whoa! Is that the dress - Shh, shh! It's a surprise.
I won't say anything.
What's wrong? Lindsay thinks I play videogames too much.
- You do.
- 'Cause I'm good at them.
Imagine if you put that kind of time into planning your future.
Well, maybe videogames are in my future.
It's the maybe part that's a problem.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
Word on the street is you've struck a deal I'm renting Mayor Davenport back the use of his town's waterline.
I'll use the money to improve Middleton's playgrounds.
Oh! Very noble.
And of course, I applaud you putting the children first, but what about my situation? I suggest you keep looking for Martha 2.
0.
Now, if you don't mind, that is my chair.
Fine.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
- Any luck? - Ah, well, as far as I can tell, I should be looking right here.
Oh, well, that would put you in the middle of the old rock quarry, which is now a swimming hole.
[DISCOURAGED SIGH.]
Which puts me back at square one.
I've been staring at these maps for two days! I wish the Forever Tree would pop out at me.
Kind of like it would for Cassie? Exactly like that.
But even Cassie doesn't know where it is.
- Hide and seek.
- Yeah.
A vicious game of it, - and the tree's winning.
- No, no, no.
When I was a kid, my friends and I used to play hide and seek in these woods.
I would always hide behind this pile of rocks in the corner of the picture.
I remember 'cause I thought it looked like a wolf.
Can you tell how to get there? I could mark it on the map.
What are you doing right now? Nothing constructive according to every girl in my life.
Perfect! Then you can come with me.
- I've got a lead on the Forever Tree.
- I guess that's better - than what I had planned.
- Um, playing videogames? That is not the only thing I do.
That's debatable.
What's not debatable is you helping me find the tree.
Consider it your duty as best man.
Here you go! Good luck! Thank you.
We don't need good luck; we've got the Merriwick magic on our side.
- We do? - I don't know, I've had too much coffee, but we've only got three hours to find this thing.
Come on.
No initials on this one either.
Yeah.
Hate to admit it, but I don't think it's gonna happen.
I'm sorry, Dad.
I know how much you wanted this for Cassie.
Yeah, we should get home.
Hey, whatever happened with that girl at the ranch? Did you ask her out? - There's something I need to tell you.
- I'm listening.
Just spit it out, pal.
You know I like to play videogames.
- I'm aware.
- Well, whenever I'm playing, I'm always thinking of ways to make the game better, and I realized that's something people do as a career.
You want to design videogames? - I knew you'd hate it.
- No, I don't.
You know what? I love it! - You do? - I do.
Cool! 'Cause I've got a lot of great ideas.
Uh, it sounds like you found your passion.
[BOTH CHUCKLING.]
I'm proud of you, son.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
- Hi! - Hi.
I could really use one of your organic, ice-strawberry green teas.
Oh no, don't tell me the ranch flooded.
No, but it's making the reverend sneeze nonstop.
Oh.
But can he still marry you guys? Only if we do it by video chat.
Hmm! I'll get you that ice tea.
Wait! What about Adam? Oh! Do you think he would do it? I don't know, but he'd be perfect.
It's a great idea.
Glad you two met.
Yeah.
Hello, Martha.
Oh, you and your Merriwick radar.
How is our blushing bride? Better than I was five minutes ago.
How are you? It has been a harrowing journey trying to find myself.
Can I quote you on that? We all know this town loves gossip.
My station thrives on it.
Well, if it isn't Theodore Carter, Middleton's media king.
I'm actually glad I ran into you.
We're doing a pilot for a new talk show, and we need to find a host with experience giving advice.
No one dishes out advice quite like our Martha.
No.
She is the mouth of Middleton.
Why, thank you, ladies! - Should we chat? - By all means.
[STEPHANIE CHUCKLING.]
Ah, you're saving the day! Yeah, thanks so much.
We'll see you there.
He'll do it? - Looks like we got ourselves a chaplain.
- Yes! [GUITAR MUSIC PLAYING.]
Heaven I'm in heaven And my heart beats so That I can hardly speak [LAUGHING.]
And I seem to find The happiness I seek Did you have something to do with this? When we're out together Dancing Cheek to cheek Hmmm! [BOTH LAUGHING.]
Ohhh I just love when you surprise me.
- OK.
- OK.
You can open them now.
I know how much it means to you to wear this dress.
It's absolutely beautiful! Ohhh wow! - [INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
- Wow! This is wonderful! Hi.
Let me look at you.
Yeah.
Perfect.
Have fun.
- [SIGHING.]
- [ENGINE ROARING.]
You've got to be kidding me.
So this is what karma looks like.
Please.
Karma's never looked this good.
You're gonna sit there looking pretty or are you gonna offer me a ride? Hop on.
[ENGINE STARTING.]
[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
I suppose I owe you a thank you.
- I suppose you owe me a dinner.
- Slow down, Romeo.
I wasn't asking you out.
I was asking you to buy a ticket to my re-election fundraiser.
How much? $250 a plate.
Let's stick to a thank you.
I'll see you around.
[ENGINE ROARING.]
[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
- [ABIGAIL.]
: Is that Adam? - [STEPHANIE.]
: Yep.
He's cute.
- And dealing with some things.
- Aren't we all? Don't look now, he's coming this way.
- Hey, Stephanie.
- Hey.
- You look great.
- Thank you.
So do you.
Thanks.
OK.
I'm Abigail.
You must be Adam.
I've heard a lot about you.
- You have? - She exaggerates.
She does not.
- Are these two giving you a hard time? - [ADAM.]
: Not at all.
Hmm - Can I steal you for a minute? - Of course.
- It was nice to meet you.
- [ABIGAIL.]
: You too.
- Bye.
- He does not look at you like a man who's dealing with some things.
- To possibilities.
- Yeah.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
- It was great seeing you.
- Good to see you.
- [GRACE CHUCKLING.]
- Hey! Oh, I cannot believe you guys are leaving tomorrow! It's too good of an opportunity.
If you ever need anything, we're only a phone call away.
I know.
It's just not the same.
- Yeah.
- But I get it.
Dreams are dreams, and you gotta chase 'em while you can.
Look at you, all kinds of wise, now that you're about to become the older sibling.
Ooh, yes, that reminds me.
Quick, tell me everything that you know about how to torment a younger sibling.
Uh, for the sake of peace at Grey House, no.
- [LAUGHING.]
- [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
Yoohoo! Madam Mayor! - If this is about your house - Oh no, no, no.
Not this time.
This time, I just wanted to let you know that you were right.
Everybody does need my advice.
One, obviously, I'm always right.
- Ah - And two, I said that when? Would not believe who I ran into in the Bistro: Theodore Carter.
Turns out he's looking for a host - for his new TV show.
- And he wants you? Soon, everyone in Middleton will benefit from my sage counsel.
Well, after I audition that is.
But it's just a formality, I'm sure.
I'm sure.
Hey! Hey.
Did you know they had entire college programs - just for designing videogames? - Uh, yeah.
Of course you did.
I'm applying to a few of the top schools.
- Sounds like you have a plan.
- I learned from the best.
Well, I'm happy for you, Nick.
I guess that went well.
- Did she just kiss me? - [GRACE GIGGLING.]
Aren't you glad you were finally honest with her? [NICK CHUCKLING.]
You were right.
Thanks, Grace.
It's just too bad I'll probably never see her again.
I wouldn't be so sure about that.
Have we got it all? Not everything.
Hello, Vincent.
Never could sneak up on you.
Uh, we really need to go.
I could drive you over.
Does that mean you're staying for the wedding? I wouldn't miss it for anything.
Well, in that case, - I'll meet you there.
- Thanks, George.
Glad you came back.
The strangest thing: I was 50 miles out of town when I found a stowaway in my bag.
Yeah, this time, I wanted to make sure you didn't forget me.
That will never happen.
Just remember you have a family that will love you no matter what.
That's the part I have trouble with.
If you stick around, we could help you work on that.
I've wanted that for a long time.
- You got a wedding to get to.
- I do.
Hey.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
Hard to believe it's finally happening, huh? I'm sorry you never found the Forever Tree.
- Hmm.
- [HORSE NEIGHING.]
[HORSE SNORTING.]
The white horse is back.
[HORSE SNORTING.]
[WHINNYING.]
- We have to follow him.
- Why? I'm not sure yet.
[HORSE WHINNYING.]
Grace, wait! - Where is everybody? - I have no idea.
Remember when you said you love when I surprise you? Yeah Follow me.
OK.
- Vincent, you made it.
- Yeah.
Let's get you ready, Mom.
Grace this is incredible.
For my incredible mother.
How did you find the tree? It revealed itself when the time was right.
[ADAM.]
: Please be seated.
Welcome, friends, family, loved ones.
I've been told that there had been a few false starts [PEOPLE CHUCKLING.]
but I promise you that Sam and Cassie are gonna leave here husband and wife.
They've written some words they'd like to share with each other and with all of you.
Sam? There's still a part of me that can't believe that I'm the one that gets to marry you.
You have made me happier than I could have imagined and more loved than I thought possible.
You've brought a magic to my life that makes every day an adventure and every second together better than the last.
When I look into your eyes, I truly see forever.
I love you, Cassie.
Oh, Sam.
You are my best friend, my love and my inspiration.
Everything in my life has led me to you.
I will cherish each step of our journey together.
And I promise to love you more each day than I did the day before.
With every beat of my heart, I will love you forever.
Will you, Sam, take Cassie to be your wedded wife? I do.
Will you, Cassie, take Sam to be your wedded husband? I do.
- The rings? - Yeah.
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love.
And as this ring has no end, my love is also forever.
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, and as this ring has no end, my love is also forever.
By the powers vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife.
