Honeymoon Interrupted

Previously on life unexpected You and someone had a kid.
You gave up that kid.
I am that kid, and now I'm applying for emancipation.
Cate Cassidy.
That's your mom.
I am Cate Cassidy.
Ryan and I have been up since 5:00.
And as usual arguing since 6:00.
I am not granting you emancipation.
I'm releasing you back into their temporary joint custody.
I needed this.
I see you've met Mr.
Daniels.
You're a teacher.
Eric? I'm your new tutor.
Uh, Lux.
Uh, you've met Eric, right? Oh! Mr.
Daniels.
Yeah, we know each other.
You guys know each other? Paige is my aunt.
You're late.
I'd also like to remind you that you're no longer working in a bar anymore.
So define "crazy in bed.
" No.
Come on.
Seriously.
Because I think you and I, the two of us, we could be highly compatible.
You so wish.
What if there is a part of me that is in love with you, too? I'm not in love with you.
And now by the powers vested in me, I pronounce you husband and wife.
Who's Julia? Um, I don't know.
Friend of my parents, I think.
Julia, you don't need to apologize.
The wedding happened.
She never knew anything was wrong.
It's over.
It's done.
Bye.
Oh.
Hey.
Sorry.
Paige thought that you slept at Cate's.
I wish I had.
Shower curtains for walls.
It's not exactly sound-proof.
Lux, I'm sorry.
I thought that Good morning.
I hope I'm not interrupting.
Coffee, black.
And hold my calls.
Right.
Now, before I get that You got a minute? I, um I made you this.
It's a little mix cd.
I'm kind of known for them.
Uh, it's got a lot of music from the concert that I think you'd like.
Nate, we're not stuck at some coachella knock-off.
This is the office, and I'm your boss.
Right, I know.
But I was just I was thinking, maybe Have you audited the reported roi on the Fenmore Biotech 4 fund yet? Uh, yes.
Yes, I'm through the first four months of the year.
Working on getting the rest of the numbers.
Good.
And don't forget I need a copy of my itinerary for the company retreat this weekend.
The retreat? Right.
Hey.
Crazy idea.
How about when you get back, we can None of these documents are signed.
Get Tom from accounting down here.
Tom from accounting.
Right.
Hey.
Hey.
All right.
I got your 711 text.
I cannot remember if that's our code for "hurry home" or "get some milk.
" What's going on? We're going on a staycation.
Okay, I don't think that's a real word.
Yes, it is.
You know? Staycation, a vacation where you stay in town.
Look, the Carlow hotel, they just opened in Portland and I figure that we could try it out for the weekend.
You mean, like, leave right this minute, try it out? Why not? We never went on a real honeymoon alone after the wedding and, you know, with work, a weekend is all either one of us can take.
Plus, you know, we're trying to have a baby.
Right? There's a major amount of uninterrupted we could spend the next 48 hours in bed.
Yeah? Uh-huh.
I'm in.
All right.
Good.
Uh, you change your clothes.
I will meet you in the car.
I have already packed your bag.
Hey.
You're good.
Hey.
Um, I can't really talk, unless it's about Lux.
I am leaving in two minutes for my staycation.
Is that a real word? Yes.
Okay, well This is weird and a little awkward.
But, uh, you know, given Everything, um But I can't talk to the guys about this, and I need your advice.
Okay.
You remember Emma? Slightly uptight.
A little neurotic.
A lot like you.
All right, get to the point.
Yeah, well, I thought at the concert that we kind of bonded.
But now she's mean.
Unlike you.
You're nice and helpful and nice.
Well, you are at work, and she is your boss.
That's what she said.
It's scary how alike you are.
Look, just find some time alone with her away from the office.
Yeah, well, I tried, but she's leaving for a company retreat this weekend.
A retreat? No, no, that is perfect.
You got to get in on that.
Okay.
There is alcohol, there is expense accounts, there is room service.
Alcohol.
I love all those things.
You know, the first time that Ryan and I had sex was at a company retreat.
Yep, kind of awkward.
But thanks.
I got to go.
Hey, dad.
Morning, Nate.
Emma in? Yeah, yeah.
But, hey, can I Can I talk to you for a second? Shoot.
The whole company retreat that's happening this weekend, do you mind if I tag along? I'm just I'm-I'm I feel like I'm kind of playing catch up compared to everyone else around here, and, you know, I just, I want to do the best job possible, you know? You know what? You absolutely should come.
Way to take initiative, Nate.
All right.
Yeah.
What's this? That is my essay test on the outsiders.
And that would be an f on the top.
Again.
This whole tutoring thing, it's not working for me anymore.
Lux, I apologized for this morning.
I'm sorry it's awkward.
This is not about this morning.
This is about wasting my time.
I've read the book, I've shown up to all these sessions.
Clearly, I don't understand this stuff.
Well, you're required to be here, so you can't just quit on yourself.
I'm not quitting on me.
I'm quitting you, for good.
I want a new tutor.
What is in this suitcase? It weighs a ton.
Oh, just some wedding stuff.
You know, videos, photos, maybe a piece of wedding cake on 12 pounds of dry ice.
What? I am trying to recreate our wedding.
This is the honeymoon that we never took, remember? All I'm saying is maybe a suitcase on wheels next time.
Okay, why don't we just check in and get to the room? Got some business to attend to.
That's weird.
That looks like, uh, Baze's boss.
And that's definitely Baze's dad Oh, which means oh, my God.
The retreat.
Hey, guys.
I get it now.
A vacation where you stay in town.
Staycation.
I mean, who cares if he's here? It's a huge hotel We're never gonna see him.
Especially since I don't plan on leaving the room.
That's our champagne and caviar.
You are not my champagne and caviar.
Really? Hi.
I need to switch rooms with you guys.
And now he's in our room.
No.
No way.
Cate, come on.
Emma is in the adjoining room, and I'm-I'm at the other side of the hotel.
So? So, adjoining room means adjoining door.
You're the one who told me to score some alone time with Emma.
I'm just trying to follow your very sage advice.
I'm sorry.
All right, I'll get the bags.
Cool.
All right.
Hey, um, would you, would you mind hurrying? I just want to hit the sauna before the welcome party.
Don't push it.
Thanks.
Yeah.
He was only here an hour.
How is it possible to make this much mess? Whatever.
You know, I-I'm just, I'm glad that Baze has someone to fixate on, because if he has a girlfriend, he is gonna have less time to bother us.
Put it like that, switching rooms sounds like a win-win.
Let the honeymoon begin.
Oh, yeah.
Ow! What? What happened? What?! Back.
Spasms.
Major pain.
Ah So, you stoked for movie night? Uh, yeah.
Sure.
So, uh, you and Mr.
Daniels.
Yeah, it's funny, I don't really picture you guys together.
Yeah, I know.
I usually date guys taller than me.
Ah, this is so fun! Cate, Ryan, Baze out of town.
Me in charge.
Funny, they were so worried.
Like I don't know how to take care of a teenager for a couple days.
Right? Apple or chocolate Martini? Apple.
Good choice.
Baze said to make sure you had fruit.
Awesome.
So, um, you and Mr.
Daniels.
How did you guys I wonder who that could be.
Hi! Hi.
How are you? Hi.
Um, hi.
Um, I didn't realize that you were You know what, I'm just gonna, I'm gonna go to Cate's and leave you guys alone.
Oh, um, no, I'm here for you.
Surprise! Look, Eric told me that you were having some problems in school.
And we thought that this would be a really fun way to do your homework.
The outsiders.
Patrick Swayze.
Sad.
Um, listen, I know that you had trouble on that essay test, so I thought that watching the movie would help you understand the book better.
Okay, well, I already failed the test, so you're a little bit late.
Yeah, but I emailed math to see about a makeup one.
It's worth a shot, right? Popcorn's ready! Get out.
You're in the room next to me? Hello.
May I escort you to the party, madame? No.
Hey.
What's up, Emm? Just I'm gonna grab a drink before the party.
Want to? Uh hi.
Can I help you? Um Uh, yeah.
I-I just wanted to make sure that I was you know, that I'm not being too l uh, nope.
You're good.
Okay, all right, cool.
Hey, actually, you know what? I'm sorry.
I-I thought that my boss was staying in this room.
She is.
Steve, this is my assistant Nate.
Okay.
Pleased to meet you, buddy.
Yeah.
You call me Baze.
I didn't know you were staying next door.
Did you need something? No.
Here.
And your drugs.
Mmm.
Maybe we should just go home.
Oh, no way.
I was promised some baby-making time, and I am not going home until I get some.
Look, the pills will kick in soon, all right? And besides, this is our honeymoon, remember? We could look at wedding photos.
Oh, my God.
Come on, the photographer sent them over this morning.
Bring 'em on.
Okay.
Uh, so these must be the photos taken at the church.
God, you know, my parents they can't even pretend to like each other on my wedding day.
Look at Lux.
How cute is she? Wait, is my mother holding a flask in that photo? Well, technically she's not holding it, 'cause it's tucked into her bra there.
Who's that? Um, I can't remember.
Oh, come on, it wasn't that long ago.
Uh Oh, yeah, right.
That's, um, huh.
Um, Julia.
Your parents' friend Julia? The one that sent us the crystal vase? Did you send her a thank you note? Because I tried and we don't even have her address.
She wasn't on the guest list.
I told you I was gonna take care of that, Cate.
She's not even dressed up.
Who cares what she's wearing? Why are you obsessing about this? I am not obsessing.
She was at the wedding and she gave us a gift.
I would like to send her a thank you note.
I mean, how am I supposed to send her a thank you note if I'm not even sure we invited her? All right, well, you want to talk about uninvited guests at our wedding, I can think of someone else we should be talking about.
Why are you doing this? Why are you picking a fight about Baze? I I just It's my back, okay? It hurts.
I'll get you more ice.
Hey.
Hey.
That was fast.
Well, I called, you picked up.
I'm here.
You're drunk.
And engaged.
Yeah, we broke up.
Cate she, uh, she cheated on me.
I just found out in the middle of this stupid c it's a long story.
I'm a good listener.
I didn't come here to talk.
Hi.
You look great.
Thanks.
Okay, so who is this Steve guy? I mean, you never mentioned him at the concert, and I'm just wondering Sorry for the wait, babe.
It's a free-for-all at the bar.
What's up, buzz? Baze.
Right.
I'm sorry, man, I'm really bad with names.
No, no, don't worry about it.
After all the weeks I've worked with Emma, she's failed to mention yours, so Stephanie, Josh.
This is my son Nate.
Jack, this is the guy I was telling you about.
You got to tell that story again you climbing Kilimanjaro hungover.
Well You better watch it, Emm.
The girls in asset management were all over him.
Hi.
I'm Jack.
How you doing? Good.
How are you? Steve's a managing director over at Morgan Stanley.
Morgan Stanley? Loved him in driving miss Daisy.
Am I right, people? Hey, you hear about Morgan Stanley's Biotech fund? It's up 18% year to date.
Best-performing fund of its kind.
He's right, Jack, we really should get on top of that.
Actually, I think your numbers are off, Steve.
The Fenmore Biotech 4 fund is- it's up 20% year to date.
Ergo, how could yours be the best-performing fund in its class? I'm impressed.
You have been learning a thing or two.
I guess we can all afford to stay on top of things a little bit better.
Yeah, yeah, we could.
Unfortunately, numbers have never been one of Emma's strong suits.
So now that you watched the outsiders, what those names? Oh, that was the worst fake blood I've ever seen.
High cheese factor, I'll give you that.
I blame the '80s.
Oh, that explains the hair.
God, did they use gel or actual motor oil? And what's with those names? Soda pop, pony boy, cherry.
Oh, 'cause Lux is such a normal name.
And you call me Minnesota.
That makes sense.
Johnny.
Johnny's a perfectly normal name.
Okay, but Johnny's just an excuse for the greasers to act all gangster.
Without him, they would just be a boy band without a band.
Johnny represents hope.
Hmm okay, I knew that you'd like this.
All right, this is all about the have and have-nots.
The gap between rich and poor.
This is not about the gap.
That's the point.
I mean, sure the socs have a nicer ride, you know, they're afraid of being jumped, they fall in love, they have the same awful taste in hair products.
I-I thought the point was that there is no real difference between them.
Lux, you realize, you do understand this stuff.
You should take the test over.
Wow.
You know, I don't want to take that test over.
I don't want you to talk to math.
I don't want your help! God, dude! Take a hint! Go home.
Right, you can't.
You're on a date with your girlfriend.
If you're not leaving, I am.
Lux, wait.
Wait.
Hello.
Hey, it's Cate.
Hey, Cate.
How's the second honeymoon going? It's pretty much consisted of me walking back and forth to the ice machine for the last two hours.
But, uh, it's fine.
Look, I was just calling to check in on Lux.
Is she there? You know, she's doing her homework right now, so it's probably best not to bother her.
I'll tell her you called, though.
Uh, Paige, hang on.
Um, can I ask you something? Yeah.
What do you know about your parents' friend Julia? My parents don't have any friends.
They hate each other.
Oh.
Oh.
You mean Julia Julia, like, Ryan's ex? Um, yeah.
Yeah.
Uh, were they serious? You're kidding, right? I mean, you know, she's, like, the one that got away.
Ryan never told you about Julia? What are you doing here? Your mom said you'd be here.
I didn't know what else to do.
You weren't answering my calls.
Yeah, for a reason.
We have the rehearsal dinner tonight, and the wedding is tomorrow, Julia.
Ryan I think I'm pregnant.
What? I, uh, I took a home test.
Oh, my God, Julia.
I am marrying Cate tomorrow.
I mean, what, am I supposed to tell her today, before the rehearsal? Well, listen, listen, calm down calm down? I'm going to the doctor to confirm it.
I just felt like you should know.
But there's no reason to say anything to Cate until we know for sure.
Julia, I'm here for you no matter what, but I-I got to go before she sees us.
Just Just call me when you know.
I will.
Hey, hey! I got the rings.
Talked to the minister.
Uh, the rehearsal is on for tonight at So, is it official? It's all legal, you're a part of the family? Mm-hmm.
I guess tomorrow is my turn, huh? Oh, my God, it's my mom.
Hello, mom.
What's up? Lux, you can't make this personal or fail at school Just because you're upset about me and Paige.
Oh, my God! I am not failing out because of you.
I was failing out long before you showed up.
How is that possible when you clearly know the material? Okay.
For the bazillionth time, I don't know! Here, here, take this stupid test and the pathetic essay and you figure it out for yourself if you think you're such a brilliant teacher! Lux, stop it! No.
Why do you care? Why do you care if I show up for stupid tutoring or not? 'Cause maybe tutoring is the only way I can actually spend time with you without it being wrong, okay?! It's the only thing that we're actually allowed I don't want to give that up.
I don't want to give up getting to know you.
I like that part.
A lot.
Well, who's making it personal now? So what-what What does it change? That's what I thought.
Lux.
So, um, Julia's your ex.
Kind of buried the lead on that one, huh? Yeah, I, uh, I-I talked to Paige.
Why didn't you tell me? Why did you lie? Okay.
Yes, Julia and I dated.
But Cate, that was a long time ago.
Well, according to Paige, she was the love of your life, which is a pretty big thing to never mention in three years.
I-I don't understand what your ex was doing at our wedding.
Cate.
When you and I broke up, Julia and I slept together.
Uh, h-hold on.
It was only one time, okay? And that was it.
I-I-I knew it was a mistake.
I was, I was drunk, and and I was I was hurt.
And Julia and I didn't even really talk after that Until the day before our wedding.
Julia came to me, and she said that she thought she was pregnant.
Oh, my God.
No, I I thought you had doubts, and I asked you.
I came to you, and you no, you did, you told me, you promised me that it was all in my head! That wasn't true, was it? And when you were talking to Lux and you were being that great guy and you were putting her first, were you just looking for a way out? No, Cate! Everything I said to Lux was the truth.
Look, I would have called the wedding off for her, if that's what she wanted.
But yeah I had my own reasons, too.
Uh, look.
If this is all too much for you, um We can wait.
We can postpone it, 'cause If you're not ready, neither am I.
Shouldn't you talk to Cate? If this is what you want, uh She should probably hear it from you.
Julia.
I tried calling, but It was just a false alarm.
I'm not pregnant.
Okay.
So what? I'm just supposed to be okay because she's not pregnant? What if she had been pregnant? Would you have called off the wedding? I don't know.
Hey.
Where's Steve? Steve had a headache.
On my behalf.
Well, I'm sorry about earlier.
He just he mentioned the one thing that I happen to know something about, and I jumped on it.
No you're good with numbers.
I, on the other hand No, Emm, look.
I know what it is like to suffer the wrath of my dad.
I thought he went easier on his kids than he did right now.
No way.
Believe me, I get it.
I mean, that guy beat me down for a long time.
Little comments here and there.
They chip away at you.
And before you know it, you're a 30-something- year-old guy, you're sitting around in your boxers, living with roommates, playing video games, running a bar Sounds pretty good right now.
Yeah, well Well, things with him, they can change.
He and I We've come a long way.
And it's, you know I mean, he's a large part of the reason why it took me so long to get to where I wanted t you know Where'd you want to be in your life? With my kid.
At this company.
On this retreat.
Here.
With you.
Buy you a drink? Well, I think the bartender left.
Well, you know, not so long ago, I was a bartender, so let's see if I can go work some magic.
Aha! Oh, wow! I mean, that's class.
Yeah, well, you can just be happy that I didn't offer to buy you dinner.
'Cause I think I see some I see some leftovers right there.
Mm.
This is nice.
Yeah.
Yeah, it is.
No, I meant I'm glad I'm here with you, too.
I'm so sorry.
We shouldn't This is, um Just wrong.
Emma, no, it's not.
It is for, like, a million reasons.
I'm sorry.
Steve's probably waiting; I should go.
Hey, Ryan, sorry.
I know it's so late, but, um I need to talk to Cate.
She went home.
What? What happened to your honeymoon? We got into an argument.
Let's just say getting together with your ex before your wedding- not a great idea.
Okay.
Um Look, I don't know what Cate told you, but It wasn't all her fault.
It was mine, really.
I mean, if I hadn't had feelings for Cate, then she wouldn't have had doubts and been wondering if she had Feelings for me, but Okay, you know what, this this is the alcohol talking.
Ryan, I'm a little drunk right now.
Okay, Baze, just tell me what happened.
Hey, it's Cate.
Leave a message.
Cate, yeah, it's me; We need to talk.
I screwed things up big time.
Not with me and Emma well, yeah, yeah, that, too but I talked to Ryan.
Anyway, call.
I'll explain.
Hey, what's up, babe? Hi, Steve.
Who's your friend? So Steve likes dudes, huh? Oh, God.
What did he tell you? That you guys aren't dating.
But you do see each other twice a week in spin class.
Oh fine.
It's true.
Look, I hate coming to these things single and alone.
I can't stand the looks I get from people, you know.
"Poor Emma doesn't have anyone in her life.
" "Poor Emma only has her career.
" Okay, so you pretend to be in a fake relationship? I mean, that's like Well, something I would do.
Now I'm even more depressed.
You don't have to be alone.
I mean, there's plenty of guys who would date you for real.
Okay, first of all, you're Jack's son.
Second, you seem to forget I'm your boss.
So? And third, even if I could, relationships just aren't my thing.
They take up too much time and effort, someone always gets hurt, and I would just rather be alone.
No one would rather be alone.
Only people who really want to be with someone say that.
And Putting yourself out there doesn't automatically mean that you're going to get hurt.
Really? 'Cause you put yourself out there with Cate and where did that get you? Hi.
I want to talk about last night.
Listen, you were right.
You weren't the only one making things personal.
Lux, I I can't show you that I care about you like normal people can.
The only way that I can show it is through your schoolwork.
You know all those tests and essays that you threw at me? Well, I went through all of them.
Lux, have you ever been tested for a learning disability? What? Because I think that you might have one.
But if you just give me a chance to help you the one way that I can I know that everything can't change.
But some things can.
Cate.
Can we talk? Uh not really sure that I'm ready to talk.
Are you really doing this? Doing what? I mean, what is it that I am doing, Ryan? Pretending like I was the only one that had a secret at the wedding.
Yeah.
Baze told me everything, Cate.
He said you were over at his loft.
He said it was you that was having doubts.
He said you were afraid that you were in love with him? No, Ryan I mean, God, well, yes, I mean, I said that.
But, you know, obviously it was, it was just because I was sensing your doubts, which is why I went over there to begin with No, don't even pin this on me.
I put those feelings to bed the second that I said "I do.
" Okay, but what would you have done? Not now, but then.
If he had told you that he loved you? Would you have called off the wedding? I don't know.
Whoa.
You okay? No.
This is why I don't date guys shorter than me.
Eric broke up with me.
I-I'm sorry.
Whatever.
What'd he say? That he has feelings for somebody else.
Cate, hey.
Hey.
I-I just came to get Lux.
I got your messages.
I mean, not in time, but I don't really think it would've made a difference.
I'm so sorry.
I thought my days of messing up you and Ryan were done with.
You didn't mess us up.
God, for so long, we thought the root of all our problems was you.
If you had told me, you know, two months ago, when I was standing on this deck with you, that I would be in a better place with you than I am with Ryan Look, I am sorry.
That night that was my fault.
And I told Ryan that.
It's not what you did that night You know, it's what I did.
I came over here looking Looking for something.
I was looking for answers.
All you did was not say you love me.
We need to talk.
You're wrong, about what you said at the hotel.
I didn't get hurt because I put myself out there with Cate.
I got hurt because I didn't put myself out there.
When she came to me the night before her wedding, I didn't say what I should have said.
In fact, I didn't do anything.
And when I tried to, I was too late.
And I don't want to be too late again.
And I don't want to make the same mistakes.
I am not afraid of getting hurt.
I'm afraid of not having the balls to put myself out there to even get hurt.
So I'm going balls out.
So to speak.
Oh, God.
I like you, Emma.
I think you're crazy hot and scary as hell, but I like you and I want to know if you like me, too.
Cate I-I don't know what to say.
I know.
You and Ryan you guys are gonna be okay, right? You're gonna get through this? Of course, we're-we're gonna get through it.
It's gonna be okay, Lux.
We're all gonna be okay.
Okay.
Well, now that I am playing hooky today, do you want me to take you to school? I know that Baze went early.
Uh, no.
Um, I still have time before tutoring with Mr.
Daniels, so I will just bike.
Bye.
Lux.
Have a good day.
Oh.
Uh, where's Mr.
Daniels? You must be Lux.
Mr.
Daniels asked me to step in as your tutor going forward.
So, have a seat.
Let's get started on some tests.
