Ordinary Joe (2021) s01e03 Episode Script

Happy Birthday Jenny

1 ANNOUNCER: Previously on "Ordinary Joe" Her name's Amy.
We had a little moment.
Thought about that time that we've met.
I've been looking into this guy who tried to assassinate Congressman Diaz.
I found something strange on your guy, Wayne Coleman.
Amy works so hard already.
I just can't imagine what it'll be like when she actually takes office.
I don't wanna start a family right now.
Is this a permanent thing? Can you find a missing person for me? - Who is it? - My son.
Jen, we should we should probably talk, right? The partners just decided you're gonna finish your law degree.
I take classes at night and work part-time? That might be hard since you'll be living in Atlanta.
- Bye, Mom.
- [SIGHS.]
Love you.
First day of the rest of your life, Jen.
Time to think about your goals, your dreams, what you want to be.
Well, I don't wanna be a doctor like you, Daddy.
I wanna be a lawyer.
Like RBG.
That's my girl.
- Come on, let's open.
- Yeah.
All right, how's it going? Oh, okay.
- Okay.
- Uh, he's good.
- Yep.
And, uh, I gotta go.
Hey, she's gone.
Let's get to it.
What's the plan for birthday cake this year? I want to make this.
- Cool, what is it? - It's the Apollo-Soyuz.
One capsule will be chocolate, the other vanilla.
Wow, ambitious.
I'm in.
Well, what do we need other than the Cake Boss? Are you and mom getting a divorce? What? Phillip's parents got a divorce, and I read an article that said divorce rates are gonna spike 'cause of COVID.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, why are you reading articles about no.
Hey, listen to me.
Everything is gonna be fine, okay? [INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
You don't have to make a big fuss.
Excuse me, sir.
ID, please? Detective Kimbreau.
Just gonna be you, me, Lucas, and your dad.
Hey, uh, Coleman isn't in his room.
The nurse is going to check on him.
Mom, what kind of cake do you want? Oh, I don't know, bud.
Whatever you guys think.
In college, your mom always like Dump Cake.
What's Dump Cake? It's cake mix and whatever you want to dump in it.
Uh, I'll call you guys later, okay? Sorry, couldn't help myself.
Happy early birthday.
You got a beautiful family.
Ended up with Ray, huh? Well, fell in love with.
Well, yeah, of cour That's what I meant.
What about you? Did you ever settle down? I like to keep my life pretty uncomplicated.
That's a way of putting it.
You really haven't changed, have you, Joe? I actually am seeing someone.
I've been out on a couple dates with with the girl that you saw me with at the reunion, Amy Kindelán.
I'm sorry.
Wayne Coleman is actually in surgery right now.
It looks like you won't be able to question him for a day or two.
- Thanks.
- [SIGHS.]
Well, looks like we're stuck together for a little longer.
I guess so.
Miss Lauria, Frank Kimbreau.
We spoke briefly on the phone.
Thank you for coming in early, and, uh, thank you for being discreet.
Oh, my God, it's really you.
Hi, I'm Joe.
Can I call you Beth? Oh, of course, of course.
When you called, I wasn't I wasn't really sure if this was real, but here you are in the flesh.
- Yes.
That's funny.
That's a name I'm working with in a song right now.
It's so warm and inviting.
- Really? - Yeah.
Anyway, I appreciate you meeting with me.
I'm hoping to contact my son.
And if your agency could reach out to the adoptive parents, - that would be - Of course.
I just need proof of paternity.
- Like a blood test? - No, no, no, no.
I just need your name on the birth certificate.
- Oh.
- Actually, I did look up Kimbreau before you came in, but I didn't find anything.
Try the birth mother, Jennifer Banks.
It would've been around February 2012.
Well, let's see what we can do.
Oh, well, here we go.
Mother of child, Jennifer Banks.
Certification of birth, February 18, 2012.
- Oh, what? - Oh, I'm I'm sorry, but, um, your name isn't on the birth certificate.
Who who's is? No one's.
It's it's left blank.
Well that I I'm the father, you know.
She told me.
Oh, oh, I believe you.
I do.
But without your name on the birth certificate, I can't contact the adoptive family on your behalf.
I'm sorry.
But do you think we could do a quick selfie? - Big smile.
- All right.
What's the headcount again? Don't worry about the staffers we lost.
We'll hire new people.
We'll rebuild.
We'll make it your team.
For now, just focus on your official announcement, okay? Okay.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- [SIGHS.]
- Hi.
New campaign headquarters, huh? Just for now.
I know, I can't quite believe it myself, but here we go.
Can you read this for me? It's my speech for Friday night's kickoff event.
- And be honest.
- Yeah, sure.
I'll be back.
He's so cute.
He's got your big head.
Great observation, Detective.
Big head means big brain.
- Is that what I think it is? - Baked bean pizza.
Just like your mom used to make, yes? Mal and I are thinking about adding it to our kids' menu, but you have to be the focus group.
Oh, no, no.
I don't care how nostalgic that is.
I'm not putting that into my mouth at 11:00 a.
- Wait, hey.
Mal loves it.
- Yeah, hey.
And Mal is five months pregnant.
Okay, yeah, true.
She eats anything.
Hey, how was your date last night with Amy? Dude, if that's all you're ever gonna talk about, I'm gonna get my coffee and my baked bean pizza - somewhere else.
- Okay, you're evading, which means that you crashed and burned.
It actually went great.
There might maybe be something there.
- And so you're freaking out.
- I'm not freaking out.
I just [SIGHS.]
I'm I just don't wanna crash and burn with this girl.
- She's - Awesome? Special? Unique? Settle down.
Dude, when is the last time that you dated somebody seriously? And I don't know why this is so hard for you, okay? But maybe try to do something different.
Like, I don't know, let her into your life.
Says the guy who's been safely married to a woman who I love, but that he's known since grade school.
This is exactly why I'm saying this, man, because I I'm about to be a dad, Joe, which means that as sad as it is, I'm gonna have to live vicariously through you and awesome Amy.
Can I help you? Amy, right? We met at the reunion.
I'm Jenny Banks.
I'm with the DA's office.
Yeah, I remember.
So I take it you're not here to volunteer.
We're actually investigating the attack on Congressman Diaz.
Oh, you're working with Joe? - Sort of.
- Okay, well, yeah.
I mean, any way that we can help you and Joe.
Well, it seems Wayne Coleman made a pretty sizable donation to the Diaz campaign in 2019.
And I'm just trying to understand how he went from supporter to assailant.
Were you all aware that he was a donor? No idea.
I mean, look, thankfully, we have many donors.
And thankfully, they're not all crazy.
You two know each other? Yeah, We went to Syracuse together.
I mean, we didn't really cross paths But we both know Joe Kimbreau.
Officer Kimbreau.
Yeah, I dated him in college, and you're dating him now, right? I mean, that's what it looked like at the reunion.
I mean, just went on a couple dates.
He's a really good guy.
Yeah, he's great.
I just I wanna make Jenny happy, you know? I'm really trying to nail this birthday.
I'm trying to think big.
Here, chef.
I know this is pork belly, but all that I'm tasting is salt, all right? Let's go.
Thank you.
- Yes, big.
- Yeah, big.
So we haven't been away on a weekend Just the two of us In ten years, right? So I thought we'd do up the city.
Go see a couple shows.
Stay at the Plaza Or not the Plaza, but, like I don't know.
What's the cool place where the hipsters are staying right now? Oh, dude, dude.
Don't say hipsters.
Look, don't go to the city either, all right? If you're gonna have a weekend away, it needs to be away, right? Away away.
Uh Montauk? Shoreline Resort and Spa? - Yeah.
- I know a guy, Peter Ruskin.
He owes me, okay? He will hook you up, comp the whole weekend.
Oh, no, Eric, I'm not asking for I don't care.
I'm giving.
Plus, it's what your lovely wife deserves.
Thanks, man.
- This is the concept.
- Okay.
Stripped down but still electrifying.
Huge, but small and intimate.
A local bar, but in a stadium.
How about a local bar inside a local bar? Not helpful, Joe.
Show it to Amy.
See what she thinks.
Give me a minute.
So, uh, I've been thinking a lot about that birth certificate thing.
Yeah, you should stop doing that.
Come on.
Look, there has to be a way to get my name on there.
I don't care how much it costs.
It should be fixable.
Look, I'm not so sure I wanna fix it.
When are you gonna tell your wife? Hey, I don't like hiding things from her, okay? But she's still dealing with losing the babies.
She's trying to launch a campaign.
She doesn't need to know anything until there's actually something to know.
You know, you're not the only one I look out for around here.
When you said "I do," Amy became my niece, which means she's family.
I think she has a right to know.
Lily, this is awesome.
I can have you all with me, huh? Even Otter.
Hey, you give Otter a good belly rub for me when you get home, huh? I love you guys.
Okay, guys, it's time to go.
Gotta let this man do his work.
Okay, this is how this goes.
You focus on yourself, and I'll do everything else, okay? I'll be back in the morning.
I love you, babe.
I love you.
The doctor's got you.
Even better.
- Okay, kids.
- Love you, guys.
Love you, Daddy.
How are you doing? That's the most time I've spent with my kids in months.
Nothing like almost bleeding out to remind you what's important.
Okay, PT's coming later, but let's work on your core, see if we can get some balance back, all right? [GROANS.]
Raise those arms for me.
That's good.
You're getting stronger.
When did that tremor start? [BREATHES HEAVILY.]
I don't know.
A while.
Just hazard of the campaign trail.
A lack of sleep and endless handshaking.
Yeah, yeah.
All right, let's try it again, okay? You got family, Joe? Yeah.
Married my college sweetheart.
And we have a son.
Appreciate them.
I didn't always do that.
You know that we're not alone, right? We are now.
So what is this about you dating Joe Kimbreau? As long as you have a wife, Congressman, I can have a date.
Okay, that's fair.
But Joe saved my life, okay? And he's my hero.
Oh, maybe he's saving me now.
How about we have dinner tomorrow night? Just you and me.
- Really? - Yeah.
- It's a weekday.
- I know.
I miss you.
Did you read my speech yet? I did.
It's great.
That's it? I mean, it's a really great politician speech.
I don't mean that to sound dismissive.
I It's a compliment.
I'm just nervous.
I've never been on this side before.
What if I freeze? Now, stage fright Stage fright is something I can help you with.
Tomorrow night when you're up on stage, you just pick one person and connect with them.
That's what I do.
I try to find you.
I sing to you.
And then the thousands of other people just disappear.
You're gonna kill it.
You're gonna introduce me, right? I need that Kimbreau warmup magic.
Of course, I'd be honored.
To speak plainly, I think that Dr.
Hodges is missing something neurological.
The congressman's tremors are pronounced and fairly constant.
His spinal injury is below his arms.
Seems unlikely to be the etiology.
I suggested Dr.
Hodges order an MRI, but he declined.
I thought that you could order it.
I admire your tenacity, Joe, but I tend to agree with Hodges.
Let's deal with trauma recovery first, take things from there.
Now what are your plans for my daughter's birthday? I love my daughter, Joe, but I wanna know when Jen's gonna stop sleeping in my guest house three nights a week.
- Doug - You need to fix this already.
That is between Jenny and me.
I made a reservation at Eleven Madison Park Friday night, the two of you.
It's on me.
Actually, we're gonna be out of town, but thank you.
You can give her this.
Get her a nice card.
She'll love it.
If you want to give your daughter a birthday present, give it to her yourself.
You have a son? And you have a grandson.
Ever since Jenny told me about him at the reunion it's like I can't get him out of my mind.
Where is he? Who is he? I can't believe there's a little boy somewhere out there that's like you, that's like your dad.
How old would he be now? - Like, nine? - Yeah, yeah.
Don't you wanna meet him? Do I wanna meet my own grandson? [LAUGHS.]
Of course.
But he has his own family.
Yeah, but You know you wanna teach him piano.
What if no one is teaching him? The kid needs to learn how to play piano.
Joe, he has his own life Baby, if you go down this road, you gotta be careful.
I will.
I will.
Dad, you look ridiculous.
It's fine; this thing holds, like, 300 pounds.
I can't watch this.
I don't blame you.
What? - Chris.
- Dude.
Okay, so you get him to the toilet.
How do you take his pants off? His pants are off before you start.
He's dangling butt naked? I figured I'd spare you that part.
Wow, okay.
- I got it, I think.
- Cool.
Do I pass your overnight kid-sitting test? Do you trust me? Mom, it's not about you.
This is just a really, really big deal.
I know.
For both of us not to be here, I know that Jenny's gonna be worried.
I'm gonna be worried.
And this is the tip of the iceberg.
We have never allowed ourselves to even think about doing something like this before ever.
So thank you.
This is going to be the best birthday gift ever.
This place has everything, spa treatments, Olympic-size heated pool Don't keep her so busy that you don't have alone time to talk.
No, we'll talk during our couple's massage.
- Well? - It's great.
This speech would work for any politician.
Good, good.
That wasn't a compliment.
You're not a speechwriter anymore, Amy.
More importantly, you're not just any politician.
No, I'm not a politician at all.
That's exactly what's scaring me to death.
Don't be.
You're a star-maker.
You are the reason why I am where I am.
And hell, let's be honest.
Joe has you to thank for his career too.
You see things in people they don't see in themselves.
And I see that in you.
Tell them who you are.
Hey, Amy.
- You're not coming.
- I'm so sorry.
I Regina invited her parents over, and I You know what, Bobby? I gotta go.
Wait, wait.
I feel terrible.
I know you care about me.
Okay? And I care about you too.
I do.
You saw something in me and took a chance.
You were there for me after my divorce, but [SIGHS.]
I don't know if I can keep doing this.
- I love you.
- You love your wife.
My wife and I haven't slept in the same bed for ten months.
I just have to get through this election.
And what about the election after that? In what world does this work, Bobby? - Seriously.
- Look, don't go making this into something more than it is.
We'll get there.
I have to go.
I am just saying that you are addicted to taking shots from the top of the key.
It ain't never gonna happen, man.
What are you talking about? Oh.
- Dude, answer it.
- Okay.
Hello? Hi, um, I know this is super last minute, but I was wondering if you were free tonight.
Maybe you wanted to meet me for dinner somewhere.
Oh, wow.
Uh, yeah.
- Great.
- Oh, no.
I I'm I'm I mean, no, I'm not.
- Oh.
- No, I mean, I'm not, because I have this, uh, family dinner thing tonight.
But, um, if if you wanted to come Yeah, I mean, it sounds fun.
- I don't wanna intrude.
- No, no, no.
It's like a regular thing we do.
Great, I'll send you the address.
Dude, did you just invite Amy to your mom's baked ziti night? - What? - Why would you invite a girl to meet your entire family after two dates? I'm sorry.
I thought that you said I don't know why you put that kind of pressure on yourself.
Or on her.
You said let her into my life.
Yes, Joe, not all at once.
Well, should I call her back and cancel? No, no.
How How are you so bad at this, man? Just don't talk to me for a second, okay? I feel like I'm watching "Swingers.
" - Joe.
- Yeah? Hey, in order for this concept to work, you have to look like you're actually playing something.
Excuse me.
Joe Kimbreau.
Uh, yeah.
Hey, it's Darren, Jenny's husband.
Hey, uh, sorry, I thought I was calling Jenny's cell.
I didn't realize that I was calling the house.
Uh, you are.
She's just in the shower.
So, uh, saw your name, so I thought I'd pick up.
Oh, cool.
Cool, um, well Uh, you know, I gotta say it's really awesome of you to call her on her birthday.
Happy birthday, Jenny.
Actually, you know, um, I don't even know if you're free, but you could tell her in person.
We're throwing a birthday party for her tonight at 6:00.
Can't think of a bigger surprise than you.
Uh for sure.
Yeah, I can't I can't wait to see her.
All right.
No more of that, birthday girl.
You're moving up in the world.
Warren Law awaits.
I haven't said yes yet.
I want it.
I really do.
I've wanted it ever since I was a kid, I just [SIGHS.]
I don't know if I can make it work with my family.
I'm betting you can find a way to have your cake and eat it too.
In fact - [LAUGHS.]
- Open it.
I love it.
Happy birthday to Jenny.
We are really gonna miss you when you're down in Atlanta.
Uh Take it in my office.
Look, I know I said six, but we're gonna need another hour or more on the cake, but it's gonna be worth it.
So, uh, Chris told me your mother is coming for a sleepover next week.
What's that about? Uh It's a surprise.
Was a surprise.
Joe, just tell me.
Eric hooked us up.
Weekend in Montauk.
Shoreline Resort and Spa.
Happy birthday.
That's very nice, Joe, but I don't know that we're there yet.
I don't know that we're not.
Well, what about Christopher? I know, but I got it.
It's only two nights away, and I made my mom a how-to-Christopher guide.
She's up to speed on the equipment.
She can handle it.
How is she gonna handle Chris' feeding tube or turn him in the middle of the night? I mean, he could get pressure sores, - and those take months to heal.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Jenny, slow down the worry train.
I wish I could, believe me.
It's one weekend.
Jen, we need to relax, enjoy each other, okay? Our marriage needs it.
I'm sorry.
I'm just I'm not comfortable leaving him.
I'm really trying here, Jenny.
I know you're trying, and I appreciate it.
I just I won't enjoy it.
Okay, okay.
I'll cancel.
Here, let me give you a little more wine.
- Yes.
Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Uncle Frank, what are you doing? Are you trying to get her drunk? I think she can hold her own there, kid.
Oh, yeah, you don't wanna go toe to toe with me, Frank.
- I don't? - See, I know how to pick 'em.
Actually, I called you first.
And we are very happy you did, Amy.
Thanks, Mom.
Joey never tells me anything about the women he's dating.
Much less brings them home.
Thank you both.
Well, you know, actually, officially, this is the second time that we have had dinner together.
- It is? - Yeah.
We went on We went on that date together.
It was it was right after graduation.
You don't remember this? Dude, I think I think you dreamt this.
No, okay, look.
We were in the city, all right? And we went to a little Cuban joint, you know? You remember this? Sorry.
Very special.
Very special date.
It's okay, Amy.
I can barely remember him either, and I'm carrying his baby.
Oh, damn, you give a good burn.
Well done.
Well done.
Doesn't remember.
She doesn't remember.
You know, I ran into your friend Jenny yesterday.
- You did? - Yeah.
She came by the campaign offices to talk to Bobby.
She's investigating the shooting.
You're still wasting your time with that? No, I guess Jenny is.
She's an ADA.
So she's probably just doing her thing.
Are you talking about your Jenny from college? There is no "my Jenny.
" There's no "my" anyone.
He is completely single.
And we're back.
I'm sorry about them.
We can be a lot at times.
Are you kidding? This makes me feel like I'm back home with my family in Florida.
- Mm.
- I mean, family's everything.
I wish I could see my mother whenever I wanted to.
- Yeah.
- Mm.
So how often does he come visit? - That ow, um - What? It's a it's an every day kind of thing.
I, um, - I kind of live here.
- Oh.
Okay, well, in that case, you gotta show me your room later.
Oh, I think this one's a keeper, Joe.
Hey, you're late.
Joe! Hey, Joe! Hey.
Are you seriously crashing my party? Darren invited me.
I'll only stay a few minutes.
It's the one with your favorite song.
Always reminds me of your birthday.
Finals week.
Yeah, I remember.
It's signed by Connor Oberst.
I played a festival with him pre-COVID.
Thanks for this, and thanks for stopping by, Joe.
Joe Kimbreau! Oh, hey.
There he is.
Glad you made it, man.
- How are you doing? - Come on in.
- Yep.
- Yeah.
Hey, girls.
It's so exciting.
This doesn't look anything like the picture.
It will.
Those are Ho Hos, not space capsules.
Chris, we'll get it there.
I promise.
It just takes a little finesse.
It's gonna look exactly like the picture.
We gotta keep at it.
I mean, once we She's not gonna be able to tell what this is.
It's got to be the Apollo-Soyuz, two great nations putting their differences aside and coming together despite all odds.
Listen to me.
This is going to be your mother's greatest birthday cake ever.
Jenny, please.
Can I just talk to you for a second, please? - Joe Kimbreau! - Hey.
Do you know Megan Thee Stallion? Come on, come on.
We have to show you our room.
You know, girls, maybe a little later.
Okay? That would be great.
Oh, my God.
Joe I'm filming it.
- What's he doing here? - [CLEARS THROAT.]
- Dr.
- Joe.
Heard you were here.
You have made quite a name for yourself since college.
And the only person more surprised than you is me.
I'm not surprised at all.
You haven't changed one bit.
Have you? Now, that is an excellent cake, Lucas.
I can see you guys put a lot of love into it.
It's a Dump Cake.
We put everything into it.
Make a wish, honey.
First day the rest of your life.
You want to help me? - Yes! - Whoo! [LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE.]
All right, now, this is for both of you, actually.
Oh, my God.
Club memberships.
This is too much, Dad.
- Thank you.
- Happy birthday.
We can all play round robin together.
All right, let's dig in here.
Okay, I'll be right there.
I have to go.
- What, now? - It's the Diaz case.
I am so sorry, baby.
I love you.
And I love this cake, and I am gonna eat so much of it when I get back, okay? You really gonna leave your own party? It's important, Ray.
I have to.
Well, all right.
It's just us guys.
This half is mine.
What do you guys want? [GENTLE GUITAR MUSIC.]
Oh, you play guitar too? Um, I used to.
You're a natural.
Three chords and the truth.
You're two chords away from being a rock star.
Maybe you can teach me.
You sounded really good the other night.
I think it's sweet that you live at home.
Yeah? - With my mom? - [LAUGHS.]
Speaking of, how long does it take her to get ice cream? Oh, she walks really slow.
- Jenny, please.
- Joe, I have a house full of guests.
I really tried to leave you out of this, but I can't 'cause my name is not in the birth certificate.
So I'm screwed without you.
Oh, then I guess you're screwed.
I'm sorry.
- "I'm sorry?" - [PHONE DINGS.]
"I'm sorry" is not good enough.
It's not gonna cut it, okay? You chose to make one of the biggest decisions of our lives without me.
Oh, okay.
You wanna talk decisions? Graduation weekend, I told you I needed to talk to you, and you blew me off.
I didn't know.
I called you for 24 hours straight.
I didn't know that was why.
I was with Amy.
Yeah, you moved on.
And so did I.
You had a dream, and I had mine.
And for you to show up here thinking you have - the right to tell me - I do have the right.
I have paternal rights.
I can take you to court.
Joe, please.
And then everyone would know.
There you are.
It's cake time.
You ready? Mm-hmm.
ALL: Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you Happy birthday dear Mom Happy birthday to you - Yeah.
You remember in the '70s how NASA and the Russians made that joint peacekeeping mission? It's the Apollo-Soyuz.
- You can tell what it is? - Of course.
These are the two countries coming together, and I bet the handshake happened right in there.
The docking module.
It looks awful, but I think it'll taste good.
Oh, it'll taste great.
I love it.
Sorry, No big fancy gift this year.
That's okay.
I'm just glad you're here.
I'm done waiting for him.
Look, I'll introduce you.
Hip politician? That's next best thing to a rock star.
And I can talk about you all day.
It's easy, okay? Watch me.
Good evening.
I'm Bobby Diaz, and I was once the face of this reelection campaign.
I'm here to talk to you about the heart.
And the brains.
And really the life force behind it.
Amy Kindelán.
Amy won't brag about herself or what she has planned for this great community.
Let me.
In my years, my many years Maybe too many years in politics There has been no individual that can represent our community like Amy.
- Hey, you're late.
- I know.
I know.
What the hell are you doing here? Officially Team Amy Kindelán.
I'm her event coordinator now.
If you'd been around, you would know that.
- Hey, idiot.
- Hey.
Look, I'm sorry.
Don't apologize to me.
It's time you send her voice to the Capitol.
Congress needs to hear Amy Kindelán.
She's not just the next logical choice to represent this great borough.
She is the only one who can, Amy Kindelán.
Buenas Noches, Queens.
Gracias, Bobby.
You've left some pretty big shoes to fill, but I'm sure gonna try.
Some of you may know me as Bobby's campaign manager.
Some of you may know me as the wife to a certain rock star, but I want all of you to know me as Amy Kindelán, the proud daughter of immigrant parents, parents who migrated from Cuba with pennies in their pockets to pursue the American Dream [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE.]
A dream they worked hard to achieve To-the-bones hard For me.
And I'm here to tell you that if you elect me, I will work hard To-the-bones hard To make sure that others have the same opportunities.
What else should you know about me? Uh [GENTLE PIANO MUSIC.]
I recently had a miscarriage.
I know that some might think that's not a topic for a night like tonight.
Some think that women shouldn't speak publicly about this at all.
But it happened to me.
And hopefully, it strengthens me.
It's my truth.
And I want you to know me, really know me.
That's what this My campaign is built around, truth and perseverance.
That is what I'm bringing to the office, to this fight.
My name is Amy Kindelán.
And I'm running for Congress.
So I'm not completely empty-handed.
I wanted to give this to you on a balcony overlooking the ocean, but this will work too.
Couples therapy? I thought we couldn't afford it.
I think maybe we can't afford not to.
Happy birthday.
Kiss each other later.
We're not done yet.
Right, there's more.
Are you ready, bud? Mm-hmm.
I think you'll remember this one, Jenny.
This is the first day of my life Swear I was born right in the doorway I have to study.
Went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed They're spreading blankets on the beach Is that supposed to be a cake? Yours is the first face that I saw Swear I was blind before I met you Don't know where I am Don't know where I've been But I know where I want to go It's the LSATs, Joe, the LSATs.
Like the rest of my life boiled down into one five-hour test.
It was hard to make that cake.
BOTH: And so I thought I'd let you know Yeah, these things take forever I especially am slow But I realized that I need you And I wondered if could come home Mmm, mmm Yes! Hey, we're home.
Hey, knock it off up there.
- [SIGHS.]
Oh, you know, I gotta grab this.
Hello? Hey, Joe.
I'm I'm at the hospital.
Wayne Coleman just died.
I'll see you in the morning, okay?
