12 Months to the Day

1 [MADDIE] Ever screw up so bad that it seems impossible to fix? Ever hurt someone so much, it breaks you? I'm a bit of a superstar at both of these lately.

Ever have one of those nights where you're not entirely sure how you ended up on the couch? [CHUCKLING] Yeah, I've had more than one.
I didn't know you were married.
I'm not married.

Hey, whoa! Fairfield Pharaohs.
You know I'm from Fairfield, right? [CHUCKLES DERISIVELY] That explains a lot.
Excuse me? What, you support those vandals? It's just some harmless pre-game pranks.
It's tradition.
Well, we don't need any pranks to whip your butt.
Okay, maybe you should slow your roll before you say something you're gonna regret.
[LAUGHS] So we're good for Sunday then? If you can answer the following trivia question.
Who scored the winning touchdown to defeat the Ferrets in 1985? Hmm I wouldn't know because I wasn't born yet, so - That was low.
That was low.

Hey, Sylvie, find out what you can, okay? - I'm gonna go check the breaker.
- Right.
[CELL PHONE CHIMES] [SARAH] Happy anniversary, baby.
You know why you're getting this message? It's been a year since the last time you forgot our anniversary, so Taylor has taught me how to send voice reminders.
Technology, right? I can't wait to see you tonight, over some cereal and no kids.
- West, you are my - North.
North.
You said it, didn't you? I know you did.
I'll see you tonight.
[TAYLOR] Mom, what are you doing? [SARAH] Oh, good God, I'm busted.
All right, I got to go.
Okay, so, sweetie, what do I do? How do I ? Now I just What? Okay, keep me posted.
[RADIO BEEPS] This is Sylvie.
I'm taking an unconscious injured young man to the hospital.
Looks like he may have fallen from a tree.
He's drifting in and out.
Likely a concussion.
Okay, I'll let John know.
Hey, you got a name, kid? - Son, you got a name? - Chad.
All right, Chad, we're gonna get you to the hospital.
- Just hang in there.
- No, I'm Jag.
Chad's my friend.
Did he fall from the pole? - Sylvie, come in.
- Go ahead.
I need someone to check out Deer Creek Road and 9D.
There may be another victim.
- Another? - It was dark.
I'm pretty sure I didn't miss anyone though.
Okay, well, it's better not to take any chances, so just go to the hospital and I'll let John know.
All right, copy that.
John, we have a call.
[CHARLIE] Hey, Scout, you ready to go? Am I still going? It's a blackout.
Well, did Coach say it was canceled? My gym clothes are dirty, I haven't showered, so Maybe you can use your BO as a wrestling tactic.
I'm taking you to therapy.
[CLEARS THROAT] Good.
[CHARLIE] What are you and I gonna do today, hun? I was gonna get a card.
I don't think anything's gonna be open.
Can we make one? Who's it for? Dad.
Well, Mom and Dad.
For their anniversary.
Is that today? Yeah.
I mean, we could still celebrate.
Like like a party? Sure, let's do it.
We could surprise Dad.
How does that not sound like a really bad [CHARLIE] Good idea.
I can make a cake.
[TAYLOR] With Cheerios on top.
- Whatever you want.
- [TAYLOR LAUGHS] It's not my thing, it's Mom's.
On their first date, they were so broke that they ate Cheerios for dinner.
- Done the same thing ever since.
- Oh, that's cute.
Maddie, what do you think? Are you in? It's not an anniversary of anything.
It sounds kind of morbid, no? Can we go? [HUFFS] You're morbid.
[CHARLIE] Hey.
Go easy on your sister, okay? - She's sensitive.
- So am I.
Well, she's a kid.
So am I.
You're almost an adult.
Got to start acting like one, okay? Thanks for the pro tip, but I've already got a therapist, so I'm good.
Somebody's in a mood today.
- Are you on my side or not? - About what? About this weird party thing for Dad.
I'm gonna help out for Taylor, okay? Can we go already? [CAR STARTS] [WIRE SPARKING] [CHAD] Help me! I'm here to get you down, kid.
- What's your name? - I'm Chad.
Listen, my name is John.
Where are you hurt? I can't feel my arm.
I want you to try to stay calm.
Don't move, okay? 'Cause I'm worried one of those lines behind you might still be hot, okay? Chad, you got a last name? [CHAD] Silvero.
Silvero? Back in the day, I used to wrestle a Pharaoh named Harry Silvero.
Any relation? Yeah, that's my dad.
Incredible.
Hey, don't you worry.
I'll have you down off there in no time.
- I've made a decision.
- Regarding? About what we talked about last week.
My mother's affair, and the guy who I found out she did it with.
I wanted to tell my dad, but I think it's better to keep it to myself.
Be a martyr.
Martyrs don't choose to be martyrs.
What do you mean? You need to think about if you're choosing to hold on to this to increase your self-importance.
That leaves you prone to swinging the other way.
Instead of keeping something from him that might hurt him, try sharing something that might help him.
Do something nice for him.
You don't need to answer this now, but think about if you're doing what's best for your father, or what's best for you.
[SIGHS] [JOHN] Your dad was one hell of a wrestler.
- [SPARKING] - Ah! Whoa.
You following the family tradition? - Huh? - You a wrestler too? A little bit.
If I'm not playing football.
[JOHN] Nice! That's what I like to hear.
[JOHN GRUNTS] If you ever want to talk to me, you just go for a nice long walk.
Find a quiet space, and you just tell me everything and I will be listening.
[ANIMAL GRUNTING] [BEAR SNORTING] [SNORTS] [ROARS] [BEAR GRUNTING] Are you still gonna be able to hear me, see me? Well, I will send you signs and signals.
You'll know.
Thanks.
That was actually good today.
- So we'll see you next week, same spot? - Yeah.
[HORN HONKING] [ROCK MUSIC PLAYING OVER CAR STEREO] Would you look at that? Right on time.
Get in.
Come on, it's a blackout.
Live a little, please.
- Okay, but I literally have one hour.
- Beautiful.
Get in.
[WIRE SPARKING] Okay.
Let's get this banner the hell out of the way.
- [JOHN] Beautiful.
- [STAMMERING] What do you have to go get again? Taylor wants to do this surprise anniversary party thing for my dad.
I was kind of hard on her this morning, so I want to make it up to her.
And him.
Well, my dad always gets my mom those scratch and wins.
He says, "Helen, if you win, you can dump me, but if you don't, happy anniversary.
" What scares you most, Maddie West? You know my greatest fear? Me getting caught in the middle of a sharknado.
'Cause if you were to look straight up Oh, you mean like real things? Piranhas.
- Yeah, it'd be piranhas.
- [GWEN] Henry.
I was talking to Maddie.
Maddie? Hmm, I guess going through life and realizing that no one really cared.
That you never actually mattered.
Wow.
Deep.
[MADDIE] What about you? What scares you? Hmm.
Nothing.
Hey, Tux.
I'm kind of in the middle of something right now.
I know I promised you I'd finish your swimbot but I'm making something special for Mom.
You'll love it.
Okay.
[WIRE SPARKING] Okay.
Okay.
I'm gonna get you down off here.
Gonna need you to stay calm.
Just breathe, okay? - Yeah.
- Once you're in the harness, we're gonna get you down.
Okay? We're gonna go down together, right? I got to tell you you're a lucky man.
Whoa! Hold on, I got you.
Damn it! We're gonna have to improvise, okay? - I'm gonna get you in this harness - Yeah.
We're gonna have to figure out a way to descend around that cable.
Listen to me.
Hey! That wire's got 16,000 volts.
We need to be careful.
Yeah.
Good? Your friend Your friend Jag climbed that tree to try to save your life.
Pretty cool, huh? When you've got a friend who's got your back like that? - Yeah, it is.
- Yeah.
[VEHICLE DOOR CLOSING] You need some help? [JOHN] Simmons! Perfect timing.
How we looking up there? [JOHN CHUCKLING] Well, that's a loaded question.
Listen, I need you to grab that hot stick and lock up that live wire for me.
[SIMMONS] I got it.
- [SPARKING] - Ah! God! [JOHN] Careful.
Ah! Nice work, Simmons.
Let's get you in this harness now.
Things change Okay.
And you can't change that Every day - Sways into the past - [PHONE CHIMES] - And then it becomes - [PHONE CHIMES] - [CHARLIE] Ooh - Something it wasn't You say that it does I say that it doesn't Oh, jeez.
All I know for sure [WHINES] Things change Remind yourself Things change [SARAH] All right, my beautiful sister, up and at 'em.
[SNIFFLING] Hey.
You know, sometimes when crappy things happen and we can't do anything about it, we just got to focus on other things.
Mm-hmm.
You are an amazing baker and I think that you should open your own café.
[LAUGHS, SNIFFLES] - You're crazy.
- I don't know.
Maybe.
But just close your eyes imagine yourself five years in the future celebrating.
The customers, the smells of freshly baked cookies and croissants and pies and soups and Here.
Open it.
Just open it.
I know it's not much, but it's a start.
- Thank you.
- [SARAH CHUCKLING] And then when you imagine yourself in the future, you can imagine yourself paying me back.
- [LAUGHING] - I knew there was a catch.
You're gonna be okay.
[HENRY] I'm gonna break ya.
[GWEN] I believe you will because I'm not that good a liar.
- [HENRY] I know.
That's true.
- [GWEN LAUGHING] It's true.
Just gotta own it.
Do you want me to straighten your hair later? - [HENRY] Couldn't if you wanted to.
- Hey.
Hold my bag.
What? No, what are you doing? - No, no, no, that is not okay.
- Oh, come on.
Buddhas are super zen.
It'll be a great anniversary gift.
I don't think stealing them helps with their zen-ness.
I don't think "zen-ness" is a word, stimpleton.
It's "simpleton.
" And we don't steal.
Thanks, but no thanks.
[SNAPPING] Let's go.
[MADDIE] Hi! Just these.
I think this might be our last one.
- It's pretty special.
- It is.
[MAN] It's cash only 'cause of the blackout.
- Thanks.
- Crunchables.
Is that everything for you? Sure there's nothing else? - Nope, this is all I need.
Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- Have a good day.
- Yeah, you too.
Sucker! Thank you.
[MAN] Young lady? Could you please open your bag? You got a warrant for that, officer? Gwen, it's fine.
Sorry, sir, what's up? Just want to have a look here.
- [HENRY] Whoa.
- [GWEN] Ooh.
Gwen! [SIMMONS] Gonna take you down nice and easy.
[JOHN] All right, Chad, you're almost home.
Easy does it, Simmons.
Nice.
All right.
Easy.
[SIMMONS] Home free.
All right, let's have a look at that arm.
[TUX SQUAWKING] - Hey.
- [SIMMONS] Hey.
Where's Sylvie? She's out back working on a genny.
[WHISTLES] Sylvie! Team meeting.
I want talk to everybody about what happened earlier today, okay? Look, John, I couldn't see anything, it was too dark.
I didn't have a problem finding him when I got there.
You knew what you were looking for.
I had an unconscious kid, I had to act fast, I made a call.
You can't let your adrenaline get the best of you, you understand? John, it was dark.
You know how lucky we are the kid regained consciousness and told us we left his buddy behind? I don't mind if we make mistakes.
It's about what we learn from the mistakes and how we prevent them from happening again.
Yeah, well, you know leadership isn't just about focusing on the mistakes.
It's also about giving due credit.
Simmons, I didn't get into this business to be your buddy, okay? I'd rather we not get along and save lives than, uh lose somebody because I wasn't hard enough on you.
You understand that, right? You do this again and I'm gonna have to write you up.
Okay, Leader, if that's what you want to do, I say go ahead and do it, but make sure you mention that I'm the reason this rescue was a success.
You're right.
And congratulations, okay? You want to talk about leadership, you get back to me when you run your own search and rescue team, okay, ace? [SCOFFING] All right.
Where are you going? You walk out that door [DOOR SLAMS] [SIGHING] Am I still needed here? No.
Thank you, Sylvie.
[CELL PHONE RINGING] Hello.
Don't yell at me, okay? What's going on? What did you do? - Maddie - Dad.
Where are you? What have you done? Maddie, what's Are you safe? Yeah, kind of.
Where are you? I'm in jail.
I'll be right there.
- Listen, John - Not right now.
[SARAH] September 3rd.
Mom's doing better, but it's been a roller-coaster.
The doctors say she'll pull through, but I don't know.
It's hard here without John.
February 3rd.
I saw Rick again, after a show.
He's so talented.
I know better than to get wrapped up with a rock star, but I'll admit, it's tempting.
What the hell were you thinking? I just wanted to have fun with my friends.
Sorry, I didn't mean to bring you guys into this.
I'm gonna tell them that it was me who stole everything.
I didn't mean to hurt you guys.
You're my best friends.
I'm sorry.
This is how you treat your best friends? Maddie West? You're free to go.
[SHIVERS] I think I'm better off in here.
- You're grounded.
- I didn't do it, it was Gwen.
It may not have been your idea, but you're not totally innocent, okay? Who are these people you're hanging out with anyway? We left Boston to get away from this crap, and you're arrested again? Beautiful.
Just beautiful.
Selfish.
Selfish and reckless.
Great example you're setting for your brother and sister.
- What would your mother think? - I don't care what my mother would think.
Don't push your luck, Maddie, okay? You always put Mom on such a pedestal, like she was this perfect angel.
She wasn't.
- And I'm sick of it.
- What are you talking about? Mom cheated on you! And I saw.
How's that for your perfect mom your perfect wife? Get out.
What? Get out of the truck.
Oh, shoot, I forgot to call you.
Please don't even think about bailing.
Something's come up.
I I can't.
Well, wherever you're going, blow it off.
I've planned this amazing night.
What's more important than dinner with me? It's a family thing.
I I got to go to it.
I There's something I wanted to tell you.
Okay, then tell me.
[ALEX GROANS] I'm talking to your back.
- What, seriously? - I got to go.
Char Aw, come on.
Look, you can't do this.
Charlie We'll just go for a quick bite.
We'll be done by seven.
I'll get you home right after.
I promise.
I can't.
I'm trying to work with you here.
I mean, you're standing me up, and I've reduced it to a drink and an appetizer.
Alex! We just need to sign papers, okay? What is the big deal? Why can you not just do it right now? I have them in the car.
Fine.
Can you help me? Thank you.
Here.
- Okay, turn around.
- What? I need your back to sign.
- Here.
- Thank you.
Here.
That's where and when I'll sign your papers.
Dinner, 8:00 p.
m - 18 Cherry Lane? - Yeah.
You know, you think you're cute, but you're not.
I literally have nowhere to live.
I am late to bring a cake to my dead sister's family, and the insurance company is forcing me to deal with the one person in this world that I like least.
So can you just do me a solid and sign the goddamn papers? The one person you like least in this world? Really, that was your takeaway? Look, all I asked was for a nice evening.
I mean, some good food, some wine, just the two of us.
I even got you flowers.
I don't want your flowers, I want your signature.
I'll be in touch.
Seriously? That's a nice way to wake up.
Oh, no, I'm surrounded by candles and Cheerios.
That can only mean one of two things.
Either Scout - bought the groceries - No.
or yours truly did it once again.
Did I? - I forgot - Our anniversary.
Happy anniversary, sleepyhead.
Baby listen.
Listen the day is it's only halfway over, so technically I still have a chance to It's okay.
I love your forgetful self just the way that you are.
Would you do the honors, Mr.
West? I got you another surprise.
What? Presents, wha ? What did I do to deserve this? [SARAH] Can you guess what the coordinates are? Hmm.
If I were a betting man I would say it had something to do with you and me carving our names into a rock where we had our first kiss.
And a few other things, if I recall.
- I could recall a few of those things right now.
- Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah.
Can you believe we've been married 17 years? I can't believe I get to spend the rest of my life with you.
The luckiest guy in the world.
You are lucky.
You won the lottery.
[JOHN LAUGHS] [TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWING] The cake is perfect.
Aw.
Thanks, hun.
I can't believe you did this all by yourself.
I didn't, Tux helped.
[CHUCKLING] What's with all the Christmas decorations? You know Mom loved holidays.
This was for her.
Well, both of you.
Happy anniversary, Dad.
Thank you, sweetie.

No, no, no, no, guys, it's perfect.
It's perfect.
Hey, do you guys remember when Mom threw Dad that surprise birthday party - and set the living room on fire? - Wait No, no, no, no.
I seem to remember that was your fault.
No, no, that was not my fault, okay? I put the sparklers on the cake, and she's the one who put it by the curtain.
- That's not how I remember it.
- Okay, sure [JOHN] No way! [CHARLIE LAUGHING] Oh! Uh, I may have gone a little bit overboard.
I don't think so.
[CHUCKLING] I think this could become a West family tradition.
- [TAYLOR] Really? - [JOHN] Yeah.
