The Wedding

Oh. Um. "I'll I'll Be Your Mirror"?
Uh-huh. That's the one.
- Lisa.
- Veggie.
You're here?
Yeah, sorry. Uh, what
are you doing here?
You went out in the
middle of the night. Again.
I thought you might've ended up here.
[CLEARS THROAT] Lisa, what's in the box?
Oh, yeah, um Yeah, it's a cat.
- Ah, yeah, that'll be it.
- I'm just bringing the cat because
Lisa, no, look. Forget about that.
What the hell is going on with us?
Aren't you going to introduce me?
- [STAMMERS] Uh, yeah.
Of course, yeah. Um
For me?
- Yeah.
- Oh.
I thought he could
replace Rebecca de Mornay.
This is the nicest thing
anyone's ever done for me.
- I'll have to take you off my list.
[STAMMERS] Okay. Um,
[STAMMERS] Lisa, c-can we
Yeah, sorry. [STAMMERS]
Sorry. Um, would you mind? [SIGHS]
Not at all.
Yeah, that's okay. Um,
I fancied a walk anyway.
Nice to meet you.
- Bless you.
[VEGGIE] Thank you.
Hey, it's Amy. Leave me a
message, and I'll get back to you.
Hey [CLEARS THROAT] it's Danny.
Uh, just making sure you got home okay.
I'm sorry things got
a bit weird earlier.
I wish I could say things
like that don't happen here,
but that would be a lie.
Um, so, if you're up for
more of the same, great.
If not, I could move.
I hear Canada's nice.
call me when you get this.
Oh, by the way, you left
your makeup bag here.
[STAMMERS] Hopefully on
purpose. I don't know. Um
- A secret storage unit?
- Oh, my God, it's not a secret.
- Well, I didn't know about it.
And why have you been
hiding my dad's horse there?
What do you mean, "Why"? Look at it!
He can't do faces. Okay? But
that's not the point. It's
[STAMMERS] It's the deception.
It's a storage unit, Veggie.
Okay, you wanted me to
get rid of my old stuff.
I didn't want to. It's
called a compromise.
Well, I'm not just talking
about the storage unit, okay?
I'm I'm talking about us.
[STAMMERS] Things have been so weird
since we went camping,
and then there's tonight.
What are you doing at Danny's?
Well, what are you doing at Danny's?
Well, no, that's that's
a separate [STAMMERS]
STAMMERS] No, I I asked you first! Well?
- I'm not sleeping with him, Veggie, am I?
- I know you're not!
No, it would make more
sense to me if you were.
I don't think you know what it's
like for your partner to come alive
as soon as you go to bed. It's like I
I sleep through all your shine.
I wish you were sleeping with him.
You know, at least I could be angry.
You know, we could work through it.
But I-I-I don't even
know what the problem is!
Let alone how to fix it.
I'm really sorry I've
been distant lately.
You have. [INHALES DEEPLY] Because
you thought I was gonna propose.
- [DANNY] Hey.
- Why did you tell Veggie
- I thought he was gonna propose?
- I didn't. How'd you know? Not that I did.
He told me he came to see you.
- Why did he do that?
- How did you even know?
- 'Cause you told me.
- No, I didn't. When?
- When would I do that?
- Gemma's hen do, after you got arrested.
Hold on, does that
mean he's not proposing?
No, I don't suppose
he is, given he's left.
- Oh, shit.
What was that?
No, n-nothing. It was nothing. So,
like, left as in never-coming-back left?
Don't know. He's
packed an overnight bag.
- Are you gonna be okay?
- Not really. [SNIFFLES]
Look, getting dumped for
the first time can be hard.
- Uh [STAMMERS] I haven't been dumped.
- It's just
No. No, I know. Okay. First time
you get left temporarily then.
That's not much better. Oh, God.
[CRIES] Am I gonna become like you now?
No, to become like me you need
a very special kind of dumping.
The kind of humiliation that literally
keeps you up every single night.
Hi. Danny.
What are you having as a main?
Uh Uh, the fish, I think.
[SIGHS] I didn't read the menu properly.
Turns out there's chicken on there,
so, uh, I'm trying to swap.
If you hear of anyone
I'll let you know.
[LISA] She's not being unreasonable.
No, of course she's not, Mum.
Well, she's two years old.
I've gotta go. [STAMMERS]
Yeah. Yeah. I I'm
hanging up. I'm hanging up.
If anyone asks, would you mind
saying that I've been here all day?
- Sure. No problem.
- Thanks. [CHUCKLES]
- I'm, uh I'm Danny, by the way.
Oh, hi. Lisa. Nice to meet you, Danny.
Nice to meet you.
What have I missed?
Oh, just the canapés. And
the, uh the ceremony.
Yeah, I know. I do feel
bad. But at the same time,
you've been to one wedding,
you've been to them all. You know?
We get it, you love each other.
Now, when can we get pissed?
- Is this wine open?
- Yeah, go for it.
Yeah. [SIGHS]
Is that better?
- Ugh. Much better.
- Yeah.
If I ask you something, do you
promise to tell me the truth?
- Absolutely.
- How big are the bags under my eyes?
They look fine to me.
Haven't slept for about two
months. Chronic insomnia.
Really? Oh, I'd hate that. I've
never had a problem sleeping.
- Waking up, that's the problem.
- Well,
if I start jabbering like
a madwoman, you know why.
Oh, I thought you'd already started.
So, what is it that you do, Danny?
I, um I write for the NME.
Really? That's properly cool.
It's pretty perfect
for me, to be honest.
I mean, I go to loads of
gigs, I drink a lot of cider,
and then I watch a lot of men in
tight jeans play the synthesizer.
Sounds like a job I'd like. How
do you know the happy couple?
- Oh, well, I actually
- How's my little munchkin? [KISSES]
- Your munchkin is doing good.
Oh, this is Lisa.
Oh, you were at the hen do.
Oh, yeah. Had to leave
early. Yeah. How are you?
I'm good. A bit nervous.
Chloe's a singer. She's
performing tonight.
Oh, wow.
Oh, I know. Hannah asked me
especially, and I was like,
"Can't I get you a toaster
like everyone else?"
[LAUGHS] Yeah, I love toast.
Uh, Chloe sings the song
from the car commercial.
- The one where it races the cheetah.
- Sod off. That's you?
Yeah. Now it's gone a bit viral, so
"Bit viral"? Very modest. Very
viral. It's gone really viral.
- Wow!
- [DANNY] She's the best.
He's my little cheerleader.
Been championing me
since day one. [CHUCKLES]
- Hey, um, we should really prepare.
Okay, sure. Uh, I've
gotta go, guys. Sorry.
- [LISA] Good luck.
Yeah, that's Milo. He's, uh He's
kind of taken over as manager now.
Since it everything's
blown up. It's
Why is her manager here? It's
hardly Glastonbury. [CHUCKLES]
- Yeah.
- Hmm.
- He wants to put it on YouTube.
- Oh.
Says it could play well.
Not forgetting her
roots, that kind of thing.
- But I don't [STAMMERS]
- Wine?
- I'd love some, yeah.
- Yeah.
Uh, chicken or fish?
Yeah, uh [SIGHS]
Lisa, Neville. Neville, Lisa.
Uh, fish.
- Cheers, Danny.
- Cheers.
[LISA] Aw, poor Neville.
I really hope he managed to
forage some chicken from somewhere.
[STAMMERS] Didn't you hear?
The kitchen found him eating out
of the bin at the end of the night.
- Out of the bin?
- Yeah.
I really wish all people
remembered from me that night
was asking their dinner choice.
Not everything that happened was bad.
I mainly remember the bad stuff.
Well, you met me.
- Yeah. Case in point.
- We had a good time. We had a laugh.
- We didn't.
- Yes, we did. [LAUGHS]
No, we did. Yeah, we
did. We did have a laugh.
No, wait, wait, wait. No, no, no.
Don't tell me you put
"tea drinker" in your bio.
What? I love tea!
Yeah, who doesn't? But you may
as well have put "air breather."
- Look, I've known you two seconds,
and trust me, you're
not that uninteresting.
[CHUCKLES] Okay, well,
what would you put then?
[SMACKS LIPS] Okay, how about this?
[CLEARS THROAT] Right. "With the
news that Lisa Osgood is back"
on the dating scene, her
incredible sense of humor
and frankly impeccable
fashion sense
" surely means that
2019 is gonna be her year."
- There we go.
You've just received your first
five-star review by the NME.
- There might be a few typos, but
- Aw, I love it. Thank you.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
- Okay, one last thing.
- Okay.
Do we really think this photo is
the best representation of you?
[LISA] What is wrong with that?
When you find a massive crisp,
it is your duty to
share it with the world.
Honestly, look, I agree. It's a
whopper. But we're in the minority.
- Let me take a photo of you now.
- What? Oh, no, I'm a mess.
No, you're not. You look amazing.
- Fine. [CHUCKLES]
- Yeah?
Yeah, well [STAMMERS] Take
it before I change my mind.
- Very quickly.
- Okay.
Okay? You won't even know it happened.
- All right. You let me know.
- a second.
- Yeah, you good?
- Yeah.
All right. You ready? I'm ready.
Are you taking it or what?
Oh, yeah, yeah. Uh, photo taken.
Thank you.
You know what? You'd
better put that on silent,
'cause that is about to blow up.
[LAUGHS] We'll see.
You were quite the wordsmith.
I'd totally forgotten that happened.
You know, that wedding was
the last time I went dancing.
Like, you know, proper dancing-dancing.
- Mmm.
- We should go dancing.
Like, right now. What's stopping us?
Well, me. Hello, I'm agoraphobic.
But you left the flat
to come and find me.
But that was Well,
that was different.
Well, how?
Well, because you needed me.
Oh, what are you doing?
If we can't go to the club,
the club is gonna come to us.
- Oh, no.
- Right.
- Ow, my tummy my tummy aches.
Come on, it's just us.
- Leave me alone.
- Daniel, get up.
- No.
- Right now.
I'm gonna go to bed
now and get some rest.
Shh! Come on.
It looks fun, but listen, I'm gonna go.
- Have a great evening.
- Fine. Whoo-hoo!
- Yay!
Oh, ah!
And the rope. I'll pull you in.
Oh, oh, oh, I'm coming

- I Gotcha.
Oh. I'm pulling you.

Ooh! It's hot.

Proposing at someone else's wedding
and still managing to screw it up?
Yeah. I swear it was in the pocket.
It's not about the ring, Danny!
I was never gonna say yes.
Yeah. Right. Why?
It's so clear to me
now. I've outgrown you.
You know, I thought we were
going down the same road together.
truth is, you're going nowhere.
Nowhere I wanna go anyway.
[MILO] There you are.
The label want your feedback on
the design for the album cover.
Probably for the best, mate.
I don't know if I told you,
but I actually found the
ring later that night.
It was in my jacket pocket the
whole time. [INHALES SHARPLY]
I don't know if it was the
universe intervening or what, but
Yeah. No, the universe the
universe didn't take your ring, Danny.
I-I took your ring.
You bent down to pick up my bag
and I-I took it out of your pocket.
No. How the No, h-how'd
you get it back in the pocket?
Well, I slipped it back in when
I was saying goodbye to you.
Are you telling me it
was you the whole time?
I'm really, really, really sorry.
You're sorry? How
could you do that to me?
I just I don't know. I just
sort of did it without thinking.
Who ta No.
Who steals someone's engagement
ring without thinking?
Yeah, because I was trying to
stop you from humiliating yourself.
Oh, were you? Well, you failed.
- Really badly.
- Yeah, I know, Danny.
But I didn't know you
were gonna get on stage.
- Why would you do that?
- I don't know!
You don't know. There's no reason.
No! Of course there
was a reason! I just
So what's the reason then?
Tell me the rea
Lisa, tell me the reason.
- What's the reason?
- Because I thought you deserved better!
'Cause I could see Chloe was using you.
And you didn't deserve that
because I'd only just met you,
but I could already tell how
kind and funny you were. And
And because I liked you.
What do you mean you liked me?
- I'm sorry. I've gotta go, Danny.
- No. No, don't
- Hi.
I wasn't sure when you'd be back.
I thought I should be here for
when my parents drop Poppy off.
[SOFTLY] Yeah.
Where did you go?
Ended up running in a circle.
I'm really sorry. Just for everything.
I-I thought I should
just say something.
And then, you know, once
I've said it, it's out there.
And you can do whatever
you like with it.
Yeah. Um
[STAMMERS] I want you to know
Look, th-there's a mirror involved.
A mirror? What do
you What do you mean?
When you look in the mirror
[STAMMERS] I want you to see me.
No. I, um I want you
to feel like I can see you.
Right. Okay.
Even though I won't be in the room.
But someti sometimes
I would be in the room.
Okay. Yeah.
[STAMMERS] No, sorry.
[STAMMERING] F-Forget the mirror.
[STAMMERS] It wasn't even my idea.
I-I-I've never found it easy
to, u-um w-with words.
I know.
I'll always be your Veggie, Leese.
For as long as you want me to be.
Um, I probably should get to bed.
Think I might have run
a marathon by accident.
Is it pea and ham?
Ah. Right.
[SIGHS] What's in that then?
where you're going! Bloody lunatic!
[PANTS] Sorry. Totally my
fault. Have a good evening.
you doing in my garden?
I can't hear a word you're saying.
- [LAUGHS] Hi.
- Hi.
Sorry. I seem to have set
the cat spray thing to
to jet stream or something.
- Oh, did you? I hadn't noticed.
- [SIGHS] So
So, Veggie's back then?
Yeah. Yeah.
It doesn't mean that, uh
I actually just don't know what
anything really means right now.
Yeah. Yeah.
Why did you come?
I wanted to say
whatever happens, I'll be here.
You came all the way
here just to tell me that?
Well [STAMMERS] I, uh
[SIGHS] Yeah.
Bye, Lisa.
Bye, Danny.
[MUFFLED] I actually
wanna say something else.
[NORMAL] Sorry. I wanna
say something else.
I wanna say
I'll be your mirror, Lisa.
- But
- I see the real you. I do.
The warm, kind, funny,
certifiably crazy person
that would do absolutely
anything for anyone.
Like, steal someone's engagement ring
so they don't make the
biggest mistake of their life.
When you need someone to remind
you of how great that person is,
I want you to call me,
- Do you have my number?
- I actually don't know if I do anymore.
- Deleted it?
- I think I did.
Fair enough. Take this
down. 07 Always the same.
Same time, next time?
Same time, next time.
