Episode 6

Did something happen? No.
Then why did you just leave? Well, I didn't assume I was staying.
But you left without saying anything.
I texted.
"Can't stay.
" You don't just leave.
I think you should watch "Fast and Furious".
I don't wanna get in the way.
You're not getting in the way, I can focus on more than one thing.
Something else is going on here.
I Don't make me beg for an explanation.
Can you talk to me? I'm so sorry, I can't.
I have to go to bed.
I need, I think I should just get some sleep and then I'm in love with you, Clara.
And I don't want you to play games with me, because I'm too old for that.
Have a good sleep.
Were you trying to get rid of me? Dad, what are you I'm sorry.
I suppose I was trying to feel better sooner.
But grief doesn't really work like that, does it? I'm really sorry about surprising you last night.
I, you know, Anita and I don't need to get married immediately, or, or, or at all, if you know, if that's something that's - too painful - Dad, it's fine.
If it makes you happy, you should just But thank you.
You left that ugly chair.
Yeah, I couldn't find it.
I think someone must have taken it.
It's probably a good thing.
It was awful.
Good morning.
Ah, went for some air, bit of an early morning walk.
Very early.
Yeah, I'm sorry.
Um, I went to get Christine's things and and put them back in her room.
Do you feel better? I do.
Does Aaron feel better? Yep.
He does.
Well, that's good.
Why don't you go back to bed? No, no, no, I'm up now.
And I want to write a list, we've got too much to organise for our wedding.
Are you sure? Yes, I'm sure, if you are? Yes.
What's going on? I'm so hard to be with, Sasha.
Just for moment I wanna feel what it's like to be a warm person.
Got a busy day? Just Road Transport Act.
I've gotta get to class.
I don't know how to do this.
Me either.
Yeah, last night just I don't know if it is good or It happened.
We can't unkiss.
I'm glad we can't unkiss.
Yeah, me me too.
What do we, what do we do? Now? Maybe there's an age where you learn to be with someone and I missed it, because Use, use your words.
Sorry, I just focused on study and career and now I'm stuck in my ways.
Listen, I'm married and I don't know how to be with someone.
All right, that looks fun, give it to me.
He told, he told me he loves me.
Sorry, that's not funny.
He should love you, that's great! I couldn't say anything back.
He said, "I love you", "I'm in love with you" is what he said, and this is me.
I just wanted him to go away! Isn't that awful? I love Vicky, but I often want her to go away.
I just, like more often than not.
And Aisha.
I love them, but I also kind of hate them.
It's true! They can be assholes.
And it's a pain to love them.
I think maybe maybe maybe I'm a bit too selfish.
Oh, you're very selfish.
All we talk about is you.
Come on! It's fine, my life's boring and I love making fun of your life.
But jeez, you're very mean to yourself.
Come on, you met this guy the same time your mom died, of course it's confusing and hard, but just accept that he loves you.
Hey? He loves you! Despite your many, many flaws and faults and you clearly love him.
Then why do I feel shit? I don't know, 'cause sometimes you just feel shit.
It's love.
Max hates me.
What? Buy him lollies.
He's sixteen.
All kids love lollies.
Okay, yeah, I know.
It was absolutely hilarious, but if you can put it in the report, that would be amazing.
Thank you.
No afternoon.
I just got invited to my own wedding.
Someone posted it on the internet.
I put it up.
It's from both of us.
What, to everyone? What happened to low-key? Oh, it's just to my friends.
You can't, you can't put wedding invitations on these things.
There's no time to mail invitations, Glen.
Yeah, but how will we know who's RSVP'd? I mean, a whole bunch of strangers could show up.
It's private.
They tick, "Yes", "No", or "Interested".
Hey listen, I looked up the twenty-five words or less page, but there were no holiday prizes.
We don't really need a honeymoon, do we? - Ah - I mean, we just got back.
What's next on your list? Oh, um, oh, flowers.
I know this fantastic place that rescues flowers when they've still got a day or two left from, you know, restaurants and weddings.
I once got 12 bunches for 80 bucks, I'll send you the link.
Well that All right, food.
Oh, there's this beautiful place on Smith street.
The food is delicious.
I'll download the menu and I'll send it to you.
And so, we can just get a whole bunch of different dishes, you know, savoury and sweet.
Ah, they do these stunning little single-serve sweets.
Oh my God, they are to die for.
And then all we need to do, is just get some crispy bread and we're done.
Yeah, but like, they're not wedding caterers, are they? No, they're culinary masters.
Yeah, but that's, that's not what I um Okay.
All right, I'll get the cake organised.
What, do we need a cake? As well as the sweets? It's a wedding, Anita! I mean, we need a wedding cake.
Okay, yeah.
Well, you organise that.
That sounds good.
I think you should probably wipe that up, 'cause it, it bakes in if you if you leave it.
That's for you.
I So.
I know you're not crazy about me, but we'll work that out.
And of course I'm going to give you all the time that you want with your dad.
I just, I wanna say I'm really sorry about last night.
I'm so bad at this.
I guess it, it takes me a while to trust someone and my mom died just when you came along, so, our timing, the timing of us has been really difficult for me.
I know I'm not an easy person to be with, but um I think maybe, I mean Maybe I'm ready to give this thing a real go and actually see where it takes us.
So, yeah.
Say something.
Has someone been eating these? Hey Max, um, can you give us a minute? Do you wanna sit down? Mm-hmm.
Um thanks for all that.
I know that losing your mom has knocked you around more than you wanna show.
But, I can't.
What? You don't wanna- No, I want to Clara, but I'm not sure you do.
Did you not just hear what I said? Yeah, I heard what you said, I'm just not sure you, you did.
There are so many caveats.
"I think", "maybe" and "I might actually", or "let's just see where this goes"? I can't be with someone and it's really not fair to Max, that "just wants to see where this goes".
And I'm afraid that you'll bolt the moment things get hard.
I'm sorry.
Okay, yep.
All right.
Goodbye then.
Thanks for hearing me out.
That sponge, that's my favourite.
That's so light and fluffy.
What did you think? Oh yeah, love the sponge.
Sponge it is.
Right, when's the big day? Ah, Saturday.
This Saturday? Yep.
Oh no, we need at least six weeks for cake orders.
Oh, um, do you have anything that, that, that could be ready? Fruit cakes.
We make them well in advance.
All right.
Well yeah, fruit cake it is.
You hated the fruit cake.
Yeah, but we need a cake, Anita.
Why don't we just go to the bakery? Because this isn't a party, it's a wedding and you can't have a wedding without a wedding cake! Um, we'll take, we'll take the fruitcake.
There you go.
Ella, I think we need to stop.
I think you need to stop contacting me, okay? It's getting stalky and I'm trying to move on.
I'm pregnant.
Fuck! Mm-hmm.
Whoa! Fuck! He got them back? Yeah.
Mom's things.
Oh, that dress.
Why were we so mean to each other? Clara Ella's just told me that she's pregnant.
Oh, wow.
And She's sure it's mine.
No, is she gonna have it? I guess I don't get any choice in the matter.
No, you don't.
It's a bit unfair though, don't you reckon? It is my life, too.
You had a choice, you didn't wear protection.
Just don't be a shit dad.
Okay? Don't be absent, you'll regret it.
Yeah, okay.
You'll be great.
I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry.
Where's the The sugar, sugar keeps moving around.
What Oh, it's in here.
Oh, I love these.
Do you know these? Pop-up concerts by candlelight.
They do them in old, abandoned buildings and churches.
Do you have to have your feet on the table? Beg your pardon? It's generally considered a bit, you know, to have your feet on the table.
Well, it's not considered, "wa-wa", in this house.
What's wrong with you? Well, you seem it's almost since you asked me to marry you, you've been very uptight.
I'm not uptight.
You're certainly behaving differently, to how you were before.
Well Well we were on holiday.
So, what that wasn't you? No, that was me.
Right, it's just there's there's no, you know, in your house.
No what? Order! Sorry.
What the hell does that mean? Well, that is, the way you do things.
I mean, I mean, I just don't know how you keep track of anything, right? The invitations for example.
I mean, your friends clicking "Interested".
What does that, what does that mean, "Interested"? It means they're interested in coming.
Yes, but are they coming or not? I mean, how do we seat interested people? They sit on seats.
If there aren't enough seats, they can stand up the back, we can drag in more seats.
There's no system at al, it's just ridiculous.
What's so I ridiculous now? Well look, if you think this chaotic approach to everything can work, yeah.
Oh, I dunno what's going on.
This is me, Glen.
I'm not Christine and I'm not you.
I'm not gonna apologise for that.
Right now, you're just being mean.
I'm not gonna fight like this.
Oh God.
So, why are you marrying her? Because she makes me I feel different with her.
More spontaneous.
Well, yeah.
You're not being very spontaneous now, are you? Good, strong heart.
Can you, um, can you tell who the father is? Um Sorry, no, obviously obviously not.
Just forget I said that, sorry.
I cannot fucking believe - that you asked that.
- Wait.
I wasn't thinking, - Okay? - Yeah, of course you weren't fucking thinking.
You know, this is hard for me, too.
Oh, there it is.
You know, it only took you one day to make it about yourself.
One day! No, that's not what I'm doing.
Yes it is.
And you know what? It's obviously yours.
I'm a hundred percent sure, but you are so more than welcome to get a fucking paternity test, or whatever when it's born.
I'm sorry.
I mean, that was intense, wasn't it? I mean the heart.
I wanna do right thing.
What does that mean? It means I wanna be there for you and the baby, okay? I, I don't wanna be a shit dad.
Maybe I dunno, maybe we could try again.
Can't we? I mean No.
You need to chill out.
What? No, because that's not what you want, you're just, you're overwhelmed or something.
I'm not.
- I just - Yes you are.
Aaron, I wanna co-parent with you.
I don't wanna get back together.
We're too different.
We don't work, you know this.
Okay, I'm gonna go.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Hi, Kevin didn't pick up his birthday cake from the bakery, so I thought we could use it.
I'm so sorry about being, you know.
Thank you for not putting up with it, I, I really love you.
Will you still have me? Come here.
Kevin! The lights are all up.
The flowers, the cake.
It's not, it's not traditional.
It's a very low-key affair, although we are spending the night apart, so there is a little bit of tradition, but um Wow, that's fun.
Um, I just sent you something through though, on email and I was wondering if you could read it? Now? Yeah and at, at, at the ceremony, tomorrow.
Oh Dad, I don't know if I'm the right person to- No, you're the only person I, I want to read at the wedding.
And it's just a small passage and it would mean the world to me.
I mean, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll, I'll read it.
Darling, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you so much, thank you.
I've sent it through on email.
Okay, yep.
- Okay, all right.
- All right.
All right, thank you.
Okay, okay, bye, get some sleep.
Yes, I will.
Okay, bye darling.
- Bye-bye.
- Bye.
Bye, bye-bye.
Oh shit! Shit, shit.
I'm Ben.
Hello, Ben, Glen.
This is Glen.
Murray, Murray.
Hi, do you have ice? Yeah, over there.
Ten dollars.
Ten dollars? Yeah, ten bucks.
Have a good day.
How lovely to see you both.
This is for you.
That is absolutely beautiful.
Thank you so much, that's great.
You're welcome.
Can you turn around please? Oh, thank you.
This is Aaron.
This is Vicky and Mark.
Has Clara called you? No.
It's okay.
You all right? Yeah.
Yeah, why don't we get started? Excuse me.
We, we can't really start because Clara's not here yet.
I did so well, I didn't get drunk before the cake.
Can I talk to you? Yeah, what is it? Just sorry.
I don't want to lose you, Jess, but I can't- What? I can't lose you over this.
Over what? Just hear me out, before- Aaron.
Um So Ella's pregnant.
And she wants to have the baby.
I didn't know.
Anyway, when we kissed, it was after that.
It's just Oh, terrible timing.
Fucking hell, Aaron.
Yeah, I know.
I know.
Why did you have to tell me here? I'm sorry.
It doesn't have to mean Okay I mean, you don't have to do anything.
We can I can't.
I'm sorry.
I really am.
Hey! What? Oh, hi Max.
Dad's not here.
Left his phone behind.
Oh, okay, okay.
Where is he? Gone to get dinner.
Max, I really need to find him.
Can you please let me know where he's gone? Japanese, I think.
Like, Otoro.
Okay, thanks.
Or, the pizza place, maybe.
Okay right, thank you.
Oh, sorry.
Was there a "Peter"? Was there an order for "Peter"? Peter? There's an order for Peter? Pizza? - Oh, doesn't matter.
- A pizza order for Peter? It doesn't matter, it's okay.
Peter! - Yeah, yeah.
- Yeah? Clara? Oh, hi.
Sorry, hi.
Um, this is Sarah, Hazeem's wife.
Um, you're busy.
I thought you were just, ah, getting pizza, but- Yeah, I I am.
I just bumped into these guys.
Oh, I don't know what I'm doing.
Um, sorry.
Clara! Hey, Clara.
- Oh shit! - Sorry.
Um I'm on my way to Dad's wedding and I'm late, but um, maybe I'll say this one thing before I go and um we never see each other again.
I mean, hopefully that's not Perhaps I'll be one of the lucky ones, who are brave, because it doesn't just happen, does it? You have to be brave to invite luck in.
What are you saying? I, I've just been You either risk breaking your heart, or you don't.
And I would be lucky to have a second chance at breaking my Mine.
And it can exist, love, with other things.
With fear and with anxiety and with grief and it just has to be allowed.
And I just I just fucking love you and I can't stop thinking about you and um, I wanna be in all of my days in the future with you and fuck my feet are hurt are hurting so bad.
Oh, my God.
"A second chance is a precious thing.
" "It must be sought out.
You own the book of the past, keep it on the shelf, while being brave enough to open a new one.
" "And we are only as brave as those closest to us allow us to be.
" "Those who show us that love exists in the darkest of corners.
Alongside fear and grief, it's always there, just waiting to be found.
" As Rumi wrote, "You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens".
So, this is a big surprise.
How did you- I saw the post.
Oh Glen, these are my cousins.
This is Alex and Henry.
- Hello, Alex.
- Glen.
Hello, Henry.
Oh, I love this song.
Come and dance.
Lovely to meet you all.
Do you wanna have a baby?
