Life Sentence (2018) s01e09 Episode Script

What to Expect When You're Not Expecting

1 Previously on "Life Sentence" WES: When I bumped into you, everything changed.
I was supposed to marry Pippa, five days before I met you.
- You're not dying.
- I'm cured.
STELLA: My cancer was gone and the eight years my family spent taking care of me - had kind of ruined their lives.
- You're under arrest.
- You really did get off easy.
- Easy?! I got a week in jail, 150 hours of community service, and I have to wear a tracking anklet with a curfew.
You have to stop offering me rides and amazing advice and and making me feel like you're the only person on Earth who really gets me.
Calluses are sexy.
They're a sign of somebody who's willing to do the work.
You know I'm not here 'cause I wanna be, right? I'm aware.
I got a job interview in San Francisco.
- Pippa set it up.
- Pippa? Yeah.
She recommended me for it.
How am I supposed to feel about this? I trusted you.
Now it's your turn to trust me.
[LAYUP'S "GROWING PAINS" PLAYS] Since Wes left for San Francisco, I'd barely slept.
Thank God he was coming home this morning.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh I, oh, I I got these growing pains When the storm wind blows, I'm the weather vane I, oh, I I'm made from what remains Thick skin, knowing it's just growing pains Only problem? Wes was late.
So I was late for work.
Hi.
Hi.
Sorry.
The plane was delayed.
San Francisco has a lot of fog.
Reminded me of London.
I-I want to hear everything.
Like did you see Pippa? Oh, you've got to work, right? I can just fill you in later.
Or you could just give me the highlights.
Like did you see Pippa? Actually, uh, we probably should talk now.
Oh, God.
You saw Pippa.
I-I did not see Pippa.
Oh, good.
Though I-I wouldn't blame you if you did.
Talk to her, I mean.
She did get you the interview.
I'm I'm sorry.
I-I think I'm just feeling really guilty about Seattle.
Should we sit? Do you want some tea? I made some tea.
- They offered me the job, Stell.
- [LIQUID POURING] Oh.
It's a really great job.
I mean, I wouldn't just be moving money around.
I would actually be helping real companies do real things to make the world a better place.
Wow.
That sounds really real.
It is.
And they need an answer tomorrow.
Wes, I-I don't know if I can move to San Francisco right now.
But we don't have to move.
That's why it's perfect.
Eventually, I could work from here.
But currently? Well, you know, for the first couple years, I'd probably have to be there a lot.
But, still, I could come back on weekends.
And you could come when you can.
The company said that they'll pay for travel, and we'd rack up frequent flyer miles, and we'd have enough for a trip to Paris so soon.
[BREATHES DEEPLY] What do you think? I think you deserve it.
Let's do it.
- Wait.
Really? - Absolutely.
Yeah.
[CHUCKLES, SIGHS] - Hey! You're late! - I know.
I'm so sorry.
Crazy morning.
Wes' plane was delayed and You're gone.
So, what do you need? Register help or I need you to turn in your end-of-the-month time card - so I can pay you.
- What do you mean? You know the words I just said out loud? - I mean those.
- Yeah, but, the end of the month isn't for another week.
Yeah, well, time flies when you're constantly tardy.
- Check the calendar.
- Wait.
If it's the end of the month, I didn't pay any of my bills and [BABY COOING] STELLA: I was late for something else, too.
Hey.
I am so sorry for being late today, but I have to go.
But I-I'll be right back.
You are the worst person who's ever worked here! You're a close second.
The funny thing about a pregnancy test is, being pregnant is always a positive even though the test has no idea how you'll actually feel about it.
Don't worry about a thing You'll learn to live again You're gonna learn to live again Oh, oh, oh [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] Oh.
Hey.
Do you mind if I order from my sister? She knows how I like my coffee.
- How does she like her coffee? - Free.
Thanks! So, how was Wes' interview? Did he see Pippa? How are you feeling? He got the job.
He did not see Pippa.
And I'm feeling pregnant.
What? [LAUGHING] Oh, my God! You're pregnant?! Lizzie, you are at a 10.
I'm gonna need you at a 2.
How do you feel? Um overwhelmed.
Terrified.
On a scale of 1 to, "How can I do this right now?" I am solidly at, "How can I do this right now?" I just got my life back, and Wes is taking this job out of town, and all this stuff with Dr.
Grant and Pippa, we're not exactly crushing it.
And I know that there is never a good time to have an "oops" baby, but if there was, - this is definitely not it.
- Okay.
But I'm also really excited.
- [CHUCKLES] - Lizzie, I really want to be a mom, and I never thought that I'd get the chance to.
And Wes wants kids, and we're married, so that might be fate, you know? Then again, I can't even take care of a cactus, and that requires zero effort, so I am definitely gonna forget to water the baby.
Stella.
- Breathe.
- [BREATHES DEEPLY] Come here.
Congratulations.
You're gonna be a rock-star mom.
I have repeatedly screwed up taking care of your children.
They survived, and they adore you.
You're gonna be amazing at this.
You really think so? I really do.
Okay.
[LAUGHING] Okay.
Well, I am choosing to believe you because, out of everyone I know, you are the one person who is always 100% straight with me.
- Mm.
- Oh, but can you not tell anyone? I'm still figuring out how to tell Wes, and I-I'm so nervous.
He's gonna be thrilled.
Hey, you got this, sis.
Oh, and before I go, Aiden wanted me to get two of his favorite coffees.
I assume, by "favorite," you mean "free.
" Totally.
The dog park is full of people looking to get laid.
Basically, it's like going to a bar during the daytime with no alcohol and a wingman who pees on your foot.
- I've been that wingman.
- [CHUCKLES] Hey, um, thanks again for the coffee.
- What do I owe you? - Nah, it's cool.
I don't mind throwing money around for the big boss.
Aw, you were doing so well before you said the word "big.
" But big is a good thing.
Just quit while you're ahead.
Am I ahead? It's unclear.
Anyway time to work.
What do you mean? I got here like an hour early.
- That's how long we've been talking.
- We've been talking for an hour? Whoa, I've never talked to a chick for an hour before.
I mean a girl.
Lady? - I prefer "broad.
" - Really? Absolutely not.
Hey, do you mind if I put the floor cleaner on a high shelf? We don't want toxic chemicals at the kids' snacking height.
I truly do not care where you put anything.
Diego, do you know where Fiona's pink elephant is? She wants to take it to school, and I can't seem to Does no one see that I'm trying to work here? Oh, excuse us.
We were just trying to take care of your children.
[SIGHS] I'm sorry.
Look, I do appreciate that.
I'm just trying to focus.
There's this new territory up for grabs at work, and I really want it.
I thought you were close with your boss.
Yeah, he transferred, and my new boss is not yet a fan.
So I still got to win her over.
You should have Ida make her brunch.
That is a great idea.
We can kill her with kindness and carbs.
- You think that'll work? - How do you think I got tenure? Boom! Please don't ever do that again.
I was waiting for the perfect moment to tell Wes about the baby.
But this wasn't it.
Why are we driving through a cemetery? Because, this way, we avoid Market Street, which cuts off two blocks and a traffic light.
Got it.
So have you said yes to the job yet? Are they excited? Yeah, I can't wait to start.
It's like a whole new adventure.
- I'm pregnant.
- What?! - [TIRES SCREECHING] - [GASPS] [SIGHS] - Are you sure you're okay? - Yeah, I'm fine.
I just feel bad for Mr.
Klapholz.
- How did this happen? - It doesn't say.
It just says he was a husband, father, and grandfather.
No, I mean us.
We've been careful.
Yeah, we have.
But not always.
And apparently not enough.
How do you feel about all this? I'm overjoyed, actually.
- You are? - Yeah.
I mean, this is what we've wanted, right? [CHUCKLES] I'm gonna be a dad.
I'm gonna be a dad! You hear that, Mr.
Klapholz?! I'm gonna be a dad! And you're gonna be a mom.
I'm so glad you understand how parenthood works.
We're gonna be parents! [LAUGHS] We were so happy we were literally dancing - on someone's grave.
- [CLEARS THROAT] My grandfather was a terrible person.
- Sorry for your loss.
- Sorry.
Just like that, all the crap with Dr.
Grant and Pippa didn't matter anymore.
It was just us now.
Well, us and a baby.
Yes? Question Do you know how many women I've slept with? Me neither.
But every single one of them, I could tell you exactly what they look like naked.
Every detail.
Grab me a piece of paper and a number 2 pencil, and I can accurately sketch them nude from memory.
We all have gifts.
But I couldn't tell you if any one of them - had jobs, hobbies, feelings - Aiden, - where are you going with this? - Kayla's different.
I actually like talking to her.
I like listening to her.
So, um, what is the problem? Since I can't go out at night or drink, my moves are out the window.
Well, what do you know about this girl? - What does she like? - Uh she has a ridiculously large LEGO pirate-ship collection, which is totally weird, but it's kind of cool that she'd admit that.
Well, you need to find something you both like a common interest.
[WINSTON BARKING] Hey.
Kayla has a dog.
You're not stealing our neighbor's dog.
I would never do that.
But I would borrow it.
[SIGHS] - Gina, thanks again for coming over.
- Happy to.
New in town, so my weekends are pretty open at the moment.
- Would you like a mimosa? - I'd love a mimosa, minus the O.
J.
Ah, I like the way you think.
Make that two.
I like the way you drink.
Now, Gina, this is my new experiment gluten-free crusts.
Try and see how - You know what? Close your eyes.
- [CORK POPS] Oh, uh, Mom, I-I-I-I don't think Gina wants to Okay, fine.
Don't close your eyes.
Because they are beautiful.
- Oh, Lord.
- Thank you, Ida.
You're the second person that told me that this week.
I think it's because I started wearing contacts.
Oh, I bet you looked adorable in glasses, too.
- Nah.
I didn't have the face for it.
- Yeah, you do, girl.
Oh, thanks, girl.
Yeah, excuse me one moment.
Diego, where's the ladies' room? It is, uh, down the hall and to the right.
- Okay.
- Hey, while you're in there, look at your cheekbones in the mirror.
- I'm telling you stunning.
- Oh.
What the hell was that? The first step to Diego's promotion.
You are locked in, my friend, because that lady digs me.
Really? I mean, you you really think so? Yep.
My gay-dar is going off.
Or is it my bi-dar? Either way, that new territory is as good as yours, D-dawg.
For the record, I didn't sign off on that nickname.
- No.
- You're welcome.
Okay, what about Petunia? No.
That sounds like a grandma name.
- Arabella? - No.
Oh! Clementine.
No way! "Clem" rhymes with "phlegm," and all the kids would call her "Phlegmentine.
" - You're demoted.
Veto power only.
- [SCOFFS] All right, well, what if it's a boy? It's a girl.
I wouldn't know what to do with a boy.
[BRITISH ACCENT] Except buy him wee little knickers.
Hey, just to be clear, you don't sound like me.
You sound like Mary Poppins after a very subtle stroke.
[NORMAL VOICE] Hey, that is no way to talk to the mother of your child.
Do we want to know the gender? Or wait and see? - [GASPS] Ooh! - Ooh.
Maybe we should do one of those gender-reveal cakes where you cut it open and it's either blue or pink.
And, that way, if it's a boy, I won't be sad, because it's impossible to be disappointed when there's cake.
- [CELLPHONE CHIMES] - What's that? OB-GYN appointment is confirmed.
Didn't even have to call.
Wow.
There's literally an app for everything now.
We're not gonna be those parents that just put their kids in front of a screen and forget about them, right? Right.
[GASPS] Although I'm pretty sure everyone says that - before they have kids.
- Hm.
Oh, my God! Baby trainers.
- Aww! - Sorry.
Sneakers.
[SIGHS] I cannot believe I was so nervous to tell you.
Thank you for being so incredible.
We're doing this.
She was right.
This place really is like a singles' mixer.
Hey, don't look at me like that.
There's a lot of single dogs here, too.
[DOG BARKING] I didn't know you had a dog.
I do.
Love dogs.
Especially mine.
Though yours is cute, too.
Got to say, I didn't peg you as a tiny-dog person.
Well, she thinks she's a 150-pound mastiff.
Hey.
What's this guy's name? - [WINSTON BARKS] - Bark.
You named your dog Bark? Of course not.
Nobody names their dog Bark.
It's just his first name.
It's short for Bark Zuckerberg.
Ah.
That's clever.
I like that.
STELLA: How about Agatha? WES: Oh, I love it.
Yeah.
A proper British name.
Could call her "Aggie" for short.
- Mm.
- [DOOR CLOSES] Hi, Stella.
Wes.
So, I rushed things a little, and we got your blood results.
The hCG levels in your blood indicate that you're not pregnant.
I'm not pregnant? I don't understand.
She took a test.
I mean, aren't those supposed to be 99% accurate? Supposed to be, but there are many things that could lead to a false positive.
One is ovarian cancer, so we ran extra tests.
I'd gotten bad news in doctors' offices enough to know when to brace yourself so you don't spin out of control.
Is it back? It It's back, isn't it? No.
No, you're completely healthy.
Then why are you looking at me like that? Like Like something's wrong? Is something wrong? Because of the treatment you underwent when you were sick, your ovaries aren't functioning as they should in someone your age.
Your egg count is very low.
Are you telling me I can't have kids? Are you saying I can't have kids? We never say never.
But we still have options, right? I mean, um, harvesting eggs.
Or Unfortunately, your egg count is too low for that.
If you want to have biological children, your very best chance is to try naturally as soon as you can.
It's not impossible.
But your window is closing.
- GINA: You are an incredible cook, Ida.
- IDA: Oh.
You're gonna have to give me that quiche recipe.
Well, I could show you how to make it.
We could do a little cooking lesson.
Perfect.
Ooh.
Maybe you can show me around the farmers' market, too.
Done-zo.
Put your number in here.
Well, this has been so much fun.
Uh, Gina, I'll walk you to your car.
Oh, I-I could take her.
Mom! Let him take it from here.
So, listen, Gina, I would I would love to talk about the new territory that opened up.
Diego, I think we've both earned our weekends.
Let's save that talk for the office, okay? But duly noted.
FIONA: Dad! Grandpa took us to see the airplanes! Oh, did he? Oh, tell me all about it.
Grandma! [CHUCKLES] - Attention spans of goldfish.
- Hey, guys.
Hi.
I'm Peter.
The ex-grandpa.
Sorry.
Current grandpa.
Ex-husband.
Gina.
Diego's new boss.
So, you took them to the airport? Actually, we were at the Aviation Museum.
- They have a hangar - Oh, with the B-24 exhibit.
I've been wanting to see that.
That's the plane that Joe Kennedy was flying when he died.
Exactly.
Operation Aphrodite.
You're a history buff, Gina? I am.
I'm a history professor.
Well, if you ever want to go back To tell you the truth, the kids were more interested in the gift shop than the actual displays.
So I'd love to.
Great.
Um Why don't you put your number in here? - Ah.
- And I'll give you a call.
I'll be waiting.
All right, then.
It was nice to meet you.
I'll see you at work, Diego.
Yeah.
Wow.
She is something.
Yeah.
Ida thought so, too.
[BREATHES DEEPLY] You're both gonna start dating my boss, aren't you? How fun for me.
[BARKS] KAYLA: [LAUGHS] So, it's kinda nice to see you without steel-toed boots on.
Yeah.
You too.
It's cool that we have something in common.
Totally.
So, we should do this again.
Maybe at a planned time with food or something? If we decided in advance to meet each other at a predetermined location, wouldn't that feel like a date? I was kinda hoping it would be a date, yes.
Yeah.
Then no.
No? I don't know what I'm supposed to do with "no.
" I don't date guys that game me as a general rule.
- I'm not gaming you.
- You're not? No.
Come here, Bark! So? He's not trained.
Come here, Winston! How did you know his name? It's on his name tag, doofus.
Good boy.
I'm really sorry.
Hey, no.
This isn't your fault.
I know, but it doesn't make it feel any less awful.
You grabbed me, and you held me And I just let my body hang I let you say what you needed to say Should we try? Yeah, we should.
Then I turned from you I want our little girl.
It felt like we had her for a second, and [SIGHS] I really liked that second.
I really liked it, too.
Okay.
So we do this? Yeah.
I'll turn down San Francisco.
If we're gonna make this happen, I need to be here.
Are you sure? That's a really great job.
It is, but, you know, a job is not the most important thing.
I want to be a dad.
So our family has to be the priority right now.
Okay? Okay.
and started my day [CHILDREN LAUGHING] Well, the job is officially turned down.
Let's make a baby.
Not really that simple.
I had no idea how much detail went into baby making.
Okay, so, we have to change our diet, and you have to stop putting your phone in your front pocket, and no more bike shorts.
Which you don't even ride a bike, so I think it's a little silly that you wear them in the first place.
Okay.
Consider me a kale-eating, baggy-short-wearing guy who carries his phone in his wife's purse.
- That is very sexy.
- Mm.
- Wait till I start rocking my dad bod.
- Ooh.
Seriously, though, whatever it takes, I am in.
I'm 100% on Team "Let's Do This.
" Me too.
And I'm thinking we can make Team "Let's Do This" a little bigger? Maybe we could ask Lizzie and Diego for help.
They went through all this fertility stuff when they were trying to get pregnant.
It's how they ended up with twins.
Okay.
Well, let's ask them.
And hope to be 50% as successful as they were.
Yes.
Hey.
I feel like you've been avoiding me today.
- I have been.
- Okay, I lied about Bark.
I'm sorry.
I just wanted to hang with you.
And it was fun.
You gotta admit that.
So, unless you got another good reason why you can't date me, then you should consider it.
I'm quite the catch.
Ask my dad.
Ohh.
There is another reason.
I'm very attracted to you.
Is it safe to date me now? [LAUGHS] I really want to take you out, but I am completely poor, and it's almost my curfew.
Can I cook for you? Look, Aiden, you're really sweet, but Stop.
You know how many girls I've been given the "you're really sweet, but" line to? - [LAUGHS] - Me neither, but a lot.
Which is another reason I can't go out with you.
I know you, Aiden.
I've dated you before.
Way too many times.
I'm not doing it again.
Well, then let's not date.
We'll keep it casual.
That's the point, though.
I'm not looking for casual.
If I'm going to get involved with somebody, I want it to be serious.
I want him to be serious.
I am serious.
You stole a dog to hang out with me.
I borrowed a dog.
Big difference.
I just can't.
I'll end up really liking you, and then I'll wake up one day, and you'll be on to the next girl, and I'll have wasted a lot of time.
I'm not gonna I'm not I'm not planning on meet Don't sweat it.
You'll recover.
Tomorrow, you'll meet another cute girl and forget all about me.
What if I don't? You will.
Okay.
C-Can we be friends? I really like hanging out with you.
You have female friends? It's a brave new world.
What do friends do? They hang out and don't have sex.
That sounds awful.
I'm listening.
Tell me more.
Simple stuff.
Like, I'm going for a hike at dawn the day after tomorrow.
"Hike" and "dawn" are my two least favorite words.
You just combined them.
I'm in.
I wasn't actually inviting you.
I was just filling you in on my morning.
- That was so much fun.
- It really was.
If you'd told me a week ago there was a beautiful woman out there who would share my passion for the history of aviation, I'd have said you were crazy.
Well, if you'd told me there was a man out there who could feign interest in the pharmaceutical industry for the last three hours, I'd have said you were crazy.
Oh, it really is interesting.
No, it's not.
- It's really not.
- [LAUGHS] But your enthusiasm is contagious.
Listen, Gina if you don't have plans this afternoon, we could continue this conversation over lunch.
I'd really like that.
But I do have plans.
IDA: Jean-Bean! Hey, there.
You ready to hit the market? I am.
Give me just a second.
Okay.
Hello? Well, hello, Peter.
Ida.
Well, this is silly.
So silly.
You should probably just give up now.
She's playing on my team.
I really don't think she is.
But maybe we should ask her.
No need.
I'll find out.
And I'll be thinking of you when I take her home.
That's No.
You know that's not what I meant.
I know what I wished you meant.
And I'll be thinking of that on my way home.
Ha! Oh, and, now, make sure you lie perfectly still with your hips above your heart for at least 15 minutes after you complete the conception attempt.
You mean sex.
[CHUCKLES] There's nothing sexy about making a baby.
All right.
Well, we should get going.
We got a big game today.
- Bye.
- Bye! - Okay.
- Mm.
Bye.
[DOOR OPENS] Seriously, Lizzie, thank you for today.
It means so much to have you and Diego on Team "Let's Do This.
" I love you, Stella, but the only team I'm on is Team "This is a Dumb-ass Idea, and I Think You Two Are Crazy.
" What? You said you thought I was gonna be a rock-star mom.
I do.
Someday.
- No, you literally said - No, I know what I said.
That's when I thought you were already pregnant.
How is this any different? Well, if you were already pregnant, I would have to be supportive.
I'm your sister.
That's my job.
But it's also my job to tell you when you're doing something stupid.
You told me that you and Wes were having problems.
No, I-I said that things were complicated because of Dr.
Grant and Pippa.
Honey, when other people come into the mix, it is a symptom of a bigger issue.
There is no bigger issue.
In fact, ever since Wes and I have started talking about having a baby, things have been amazing.
We are on the same team, and we have a plan.
Wes even turned down a job in San Francisco because of how excited he is to have a baby.
Okay, but when do you get to the part when you tell me how excited you are to have a baby? You know what? If this is how you're gonna be, you can leave.
Stell, you said it yourself You love that I'm always straight with you.
Okay, that is all I'm doing here.
Kids don't fix problems.
They make them worse.
Before we had the twins, Diego and I never fought.
But after? Ooh, things got really hard.
We started fighting about everything.
We almost got a divorce, Stella.
We spent every Monday night for two years in therapy.
You said you joined a bowling league.
Nobody "joins a bowling league.
" Well, we don't really have a choice.
If we want to have a baby, we have to start trying now.
There are other ways to have a baby.
You don't get it.
You don't get what it's like to live with a ticking clock on your life.
I'm not you, Lizzie.
I don't get to sit at home all perfect and fertile with my feet up in the air, taking my sweet time to write some stupid children's book that no one is ever gonna publish.
[SIGHS] Okay.
Uh, you know what? Next time you need help with something, call Aiden.
- [DOOR OPENS, CLOSES] - [SIGHS] Ahh! Girl problems? Yeah.
You? Same.
What's up with yours? She wants to date a "serious" person.
What about you? What's your problem? The woman I like might like your mom.
That is also a toughie.
Yep.
Couple of toughies.
Hey, there, stranger.
You got a sec? Denise.
Hey.
Ahh! I'm gonna make myself a potpie.
[SLEEP MACHINE'S "WILD FOR YOU" PLAYS] - You're the lion that I'm taming - Hey, you.
Hi.
What is all this for? The candles are for romance, and the pillows are for conception.
"Conception" is not a sexy word.
It really isn't.
But you are very sexy.
And so are you, so get over here.
Wild for you After the market, Gina asked me to help her shop for home goods.
It was very intimate.
There was this one moment in the small-appliance section ah, sparks were flying.
You sure it wasn't a toaster short-circuiting? You mock, but it was one of the best dates I ever had.
I'm gonna call Diego and see if she said anything about me.
Hey, are you okay? Yeah.
All good here.
Call away.
Okay.
[KEYBOARD CLACKING] Mom, I am on my way home, and I picked up some Chinese food for dinner.
Diego.
Question.
Gina.
That is not a question.
Did she say anything about me? I feel like it's going well.
I threw her a wink, and it felt like she caught it, but You want me to see if she caught your wink? - Yes.
- [CELLPHONE BEEPING] Uh, hold on one sec.
Hello? Diego, hey.
What's up, Pop? I was just wondering has Gina said anything about me? We had the best time at the museum, but I'm a little confused about where we stand.
That makes two of us.
What's that supposed to mean? Nothing.
Uh hold on one sec.
- [CELLPHONE BEEPS] - Hey.
Sorry.
Just do a little digging for me, okay? I-I'll see what I can find out.
- Bye, Mom.
- Bye.
- [CELLPHONE BEEPS] - Hey, you still there? Yeah.
So, you'll do a little recon for me? Nothing I'd rather do.
You're the best.
[CELLPHONE BEEPS] Oh, boy.
I really am sorry about the whole drug-bust thing.
I feel like it was my fault.
It wasn't.
And don't be.
It was the best thing that ever happened to me.
I think.
I hope.
Being optimistic.
Listen, my husband and I split up, and I could really use some casual fun in my life if you're game.
You know what's cool? I think you are a beautiful woman.
Like, you are ridiculously hot.
And I used to be so attracted to you, but I'm not anymore.
How is that cool? I guess it's not as cool for you.
It's more of a me thing.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, the words "casual" and "fun" are being replaced by "dawn" and "hike.
" And that feels like progress.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Right.
Also kind of a me thing.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna see if I can go get in on that potpie.
You know what I was just thinking? That I should win some sort of award for what I just did? That, and, also how cool would it be if we just made a baby? On our first try? I mean, I know it's a long shot, but it's a nice thought, isn't it? You told me that you and Wes were having problems.
How am I supposed to feel about this? How was I supposed to feel about you spending the night in Seattle? It's a shame I didn't meet you seven months ago.
I was supposed to marry her.
ELIZABETH: When other people come into the mix, it is a symptom of a bigger issue.
STELLA: Wes even turned down a job in San Francisco because of how excited he is to have a baby.
If we're gonna make this happen, I need to be here.
I want to be a dad.
Kids don't fix problems.
They make them worse.
Stell? You okay? I don't think I can do this, Wes.
I'm not ready to have a baby.
I don't understand.
You said that you wanted our little girl.
What changed? I just got this clean slate, you know? And I've been trying to figure out who I'm supposed to be.
And I realize that every choice, every single decision I've ever made has been based on me being sick.
Birthdays on hold.
Christmas in July.
Thanksgiving on Easter.
And it's not just because it's a better holiday.
It's because nobody thought that I would make it to November.
Even you and I got married because we thought we had no time.
What are you saying? I'm saying [SIGHS] we need to take our time here.
We can't rush into having a baby.
But you heard what the doctor said.
If we don't do this now, then we might not get to at all.
Then we might not get to.
Not in the way we imagined, anyway.
Hey, but there are other ways to be a family.
Yeah, okay.
Okay.
[SNIFFLES, CLEARS THROAT] [BREATHES DEEPLY] Oh, you know what? It's not okay.
I get it.
But we're married, Stells.
So you don't get to make all the decisions all the time.
We're a team.
I don't make "all" the decisions.
Yes, you do.
All the important ones, anyway.
Every conversation that we have is about your wants and your needs and your feelings.
But this this is our life.
Together.
So, when are we gonna talk about what I want? I'm gonna stay at Diego's tonight.
Good.
Come on.
Hey.
Sorry I'm late.
Which, for me, is still very early.
I didn't think you were gonna make it.
I almost didn't.
Turns out I have a morning curfew, too.
The neighborhood was not thrilled by the piercing alarm that went off when I tried to leave.
Well, sounds like you're all warmed up, which is good 'cause we got five miles to burn.
Five miles? We're walking five miles on purpose? You do know what hiking is, right? Where's your water? We're supposed to bring our own water? You can have some of mine.
Are you ready for this? Honestly, I don't know.
DIEGO: You, uh You have to pick one.
Wait.
Ida's gay? Oh, God.
That was her winking at me.
I thought she just had an eye thing.
Peter is a great guy.
And he's into you.
Look, I like Peter, but if this is going to be weird for you, I-I don't have to.
As long as it doesn't affect my job negatively you have my total blessing.
I-I will have to talk to Ida, though, so Well, anyone who would go to this much trouble to get keep their in-laws happy deserves that new territory.
Really? [CHUCKLES] Thank you so much.
I said you deserve it.
Didn't say you were gonna get it.
Let's see how this presentation goes D-dawg.
Hey, I-I told Ida that I was not signing off on that nickname.
I didn't know how Wes and I were going to get through this.
[THUNDER RUMBLING] And the worst part was, the one person I wanted to talk to - wasn't speaking to me.
- [DOOR OPENS] [DOOR CLOSES] I would have come sooner, but the rosé had to chill, and I couldn't find my copy of "Sweet November.
" What are you doing here? I was so mean to you.
I'm your big sister.
I'll always be here.
No matter what.
[CRYING] IDA: She's as good as yours, Peter.
Thanks, Ida.
I appreciate the concession call.
All is fair in love and war.
For what it's worth, if she were even a little bit bi she would have picked you.
Uh duh.
I'm amazing.
Now, you two go have fun.
And, please, do all the things that I would do.
[WHITLEY'S "MORE THAN LIFE" PLAYS] Ready to go? - Belief - Ah.
In the breeze - The smoky morning haze - [SIGHS] That was fun.
You liked hiking? No.
Hiking was exhausting.
So, I'm moving into a new place tomorrow.
How would you feel about giving me a hand? I feel like that's something you do when you're sleeping with someone.
Or if you're friends with someone.
Then count me in.
Do I have to bring my own water? Come on, Misty.
Then goes away Ahh! [BREATHES DEEPLY] Mm! And we are homeward bound And I What was that for? Don't ask questions.
Women are confusing.
[DOOR CLOSES] To touch Something real You were right.
There are bigger issues.
What are they? [SIGHS] Wes is amazing.
But I'm just not sure if we're gonna last forever.
Do you still love him? So much.
Then you don't give up.
You work on it.
I want this more than life I knew Lizzie was right.
I want this more than life I couldn't give up.
I was ready to fight for us.
I just hoped it wasn't too late.
I want this more than life I want this more than life
