The Curse (2023) s01e10 Episode Script

Green Queen

All righty, all righty!
Welcome back, guys.
We are having quite a
time in the kitchen today.
We are cooking from The Wise
Guys Cookbook with none other
than our friend, our pal,
part of our extended family
since The Sopranos, we're
back with Vincent Pastore.
He's been cooking his heart out.
- How are you?
- It smells fantastic in here.
- Yeah.
We have our meatballs
simmering in the sauce.
- Right.
- Natalie's recipe. Your mama's.
My mother's recipe all
the way from Calabria.
Beautiful. Beautiful.
They're so gently cooking in the sauce.
- Yeah.
- It smells fantastic in here.
And what are you working
on now, my darling?
What am I working on now? I'm making
Oh, by the by, over the break
he put a little wine in the sauce,
so we put a little wine
in the glass. Cheers.
Mm. So, Vin, you're going
to finish the antipas, yeah?
Yeah. I gotta take care of this.
Okay, so while he's
finishing the antipas,
we're going to move things along.
I'm going to do my best to
move things along by introducing
you guys to the "Green Queen".
The Green Queen is a new show
but it's actually two people.
We have the stars of
the new HGTV series.
It's a couple, and they're
turning their hometown
upside down with a new
approach to eco-living.
Say hey-hey to Whitney
and Asher Siegel.
Thank you so much for
having us, Rachael.
We are such big fans.
So, guys,
talk to me about how we're
all building our homes
or have built our homes incorrectly.
We're all wrong.
It goes as far as you guys saying
we don't need air conditioners.
I have a problem with this.
I am a sweater, okay?
I am a sweater. I pit out, all right?
I don't need an air
conditioner in, like, August?
Well, Rachael, you actually don't.
That is, if you have a passive house,
which is kind of like
living in a big thermos.
- Really. It's
- I don't know that I could live in a thermos.
I have used a thermos
when we're in upstate New
York, where I come from.
I mean, it's cold there, so
I can have a little coffee
in the morning maybe, or some cocoa.
A little later in the day,
it's more like John's cocktails
- or some chilled vodka.
- [WHITNEY] Well
No matter what you put in it,
your thermos doesn't need any
energy to keep the temperature
consistent and stable.
It works as well to keep the
cold in as it does the hot.
For example, our homes
don't have basements
because they're a giant thermal bridge.
That's where your home leaks.
- So
- [RACHAEL] Huh!
Many people don't know how
bad basements are for energy.
So I'm still trying to
wrap my head around this.
If I lost my basement, I
couldn't hear my husband,
John, playing his Steinway
piano. That's where we keep it.
And we'd have to lose our gym
and we'd never shoot
another game of pool.
Like, am I supposed to take
all of that out and, like,
literally fill the
basement with insulation?
Well, insulation can help,
but the best way is to just
build it from the ground
up using a foam foundation
- instead of a basement.
- Well, practically, we can't all,
your new viewers, right? We
can't all rebuild our homes.
What can we do?
Oh, well, for instance, we
have a timer in our shower
that automatically turns off
the water after five minutes.
So that's a really
simple way to save water.
Just taking shorter showers.
I actually am am down with that.
We do do our part in a
lot of ways, I have to say.
Here at the show, we try and be mindful,
certainly of food waste.
We give our excess food
to the local pantries
and we use these cool
products. I love this product.
We keep our kitchen
clean with Josey Bamboo.
It's a compostable cleaning wipe.
These guys do not use harsh chemicals.
It leaves no residue.
And the reason I use them is
that they're safe around pets
and kids and, of course,
food contact surfaces.
We have a little bit
We have a little bit of
your meatball mess over here.
- So I'm just
- I didn't make that mess.
Yes, you actually did!
When you made the
meatballs, you actually did.
Okay, I made that mess
when I made the meatballs.
I know. I know. So we love these because
they are environmentally friendly
and they do a really great job.
So we use them to help us
keep the kitchen looking, well,
like I wasn't in it. I make
a way bigger mess, by the way.
So what's the trick to the
meatballs? They smell amazing.
Well, the problem is, on
Sunday mornings, right?
I come over and I grab a meatball
and I put it on a piece
of bread, like that, right?
- Yeah.
- Right? And then I'd eat it.
And by the time dinner
comes around, I'm full.
And, uh, the kids love
the meatballs. I mean
That's what's most healthy about it.
- Right?
- [VINCENT] Yes. Yes.
[ASHER] I'll have to
get that recipe from you.
I'm gonna be chasing around
a little one of my own soon.
Okay, so if we really
want to bring it home
- for the cookbook.
- Yeah.
Can I ask you to do one more thing,
- just 'cause I know you can?
- Yeah. What?
I really want you to
show your hidden talent
and kind of bring it home.
I do a little singing.
I was on Broadway.
[VINCENT] Yeah, you know,
my mother said when you,
when you stir the sauce, it's
always good to sing, you know?
Especially when you have somebody as,
- as lovely as you to sing to.
- Aw!
So I love to make my
meatballs Sunday morning ♪
I love to add a
little wine to the pot ♪
I love to make my
meatballs in the morning ♪
And, baby, you're so hot ♪
- She calls it sauce ♪
I call it gravy ♪
She's my baby and
she's driving me crazy ♪
So, baby, baby ♪
Spend your life with me ♪
Look at her! Your husband's
going to divorce you.
Oh, that's okay.
I got a place to go
with some good meatballs.
Oh, my God! You can find all
of Vincent's terrific recipes,
that he's been making with us all day,
- in The Wise Guys Cookbook.
- Wise Guys Cookbook.
And I got to tell you,
this is a labor of love.
- Yes.
- That reminds you of family.
It's like a scrapbook, you know?
And we'll have a link
through to our website
on any dates you have coming
up, whether you're singing
- or talking, yes?
- Yeah.
You brought it home big time, baby.
- I got it.
- I adore you. I adore you.
- [RACHAEL] Oh, oh, oh!
And of course, thank
you to the Green Queens,
Whitney and Asher.
- Please be sure
to check out season one
of their show, Green Queen.
It is streaming now on HGTV Go.
So you can watch it whenever you like.
We smell like wine and garlic
and we're happy about it
but we're going to go
take five minute showers.
- Not together!
Separately. Sure. Okay. Okay. Buzzkill.
Grab a snack, we'll be right back, guys.
[WHITNEY] Thank you so much, Rachael.
[CAMERA OP] All right!
- Thank you so much.
- Thank you.
And, uh, so is this going to air today?
- Uh, Monday, 2:00 p.m.
- [WHITNEY] Mm, okay.
Do you think Rachael
actually watched the show
or she was just briefed on it?
- I'm sure she watched it.
- Do you know?
Do you know if Rachael
actually watched our show?
I know Rachael's very
busy, so if she didn't,
it wouldn't be personal.
- Can I get your mic pack?
- Yes.
I'm going to take your
microphone off now.
Do I have permission to touch you again?
Permission granted.
Hey, watch it, pal!
[ASHER CHUCKLES] I'm just kidding.
It's interesting that she
didn't bring up the baby.
- I know. I teed her up.
- You did good.
- You did better.
- Maybe it wasn't in the shot.
Are you talking about your belly?
It was in the shot.
- There you go.
- Oh, thank you.
I'm gonna take your mic.
Do I have permission to touch you again?
Do you guys need any water
or soda water or anything?
Um, I don't think so but thank you.
- Okay.
- Thanks so much.
- Thank you again. Yes.
- [CAMERA OP] Thank you.
- Good job.
- [WHITNEY] Thank you.
- [CAMERA OP] Be sure and watch.
- [WHITNEY] Yeah, we will.

No phones. No phones.
Here, take some.
You have to eat it.
I am so annoyed that
we're not on actual TV.
And everyone I know says that
they can't find the show anywhere.
And now no one is writing about it.
I mean, it takes time.
I mean, we're doing a second season now,
and that's going to
involve the baby, too.
And, like the network said, you know,
that's going to grow our audience.
I mean, we just did Rachael Ray.
Rachael fucking Ray!
Cara is being profiled
in the New York Times
for quitting art.
So quitting art is an art piece now?
It's interesting that she
has this big problem
with the evil collectors
"after" she didn't sell
anything in her show.
- Well
- I'm just saying.
Maybe if you, uh,
quit this show and start
working at a massage parlor
they'll write about you, too.
I'd have to say it was a
statement on the Holocaust
or something. [LAUGHS]
[ASHER] Whit!
Okay, that was inappropriate,
but so was your joke.
You know, I know you're
just joking about
how they said that her selling
her art to people was a form
of retraumatizing her but
I mean, her people
have been through a lot.
And as an artistic
endeavor, I actually get it.
We all process tragedy in our own way.
Look at Mel Brooks.
I mean, when he came
out with The Producers,
Jews hated that movie.
But the film
helped us process the
Holocaust, you know,
because we thought it was a sad thing.
And it is a sad thing,
but it's also funny, too.
Or there's humor that
can be found in it. Um
Because art, art is about
Really, art is about
I mean, sometimes you have
to go to extreme lengths
to make your point is
- what I'm saying.
- Yeah.
I understand what you're saying.
I mean, I shouldn't
make jokes like that.
It's not, you know, I don't,
I don't have the experience.
I don't share the experience or the
or the struggles of your history.
Hey, if you think for a second
that just because you
converted, you're any less
Jewish than I am,
you're dead wrong, okay?
You know, interesting fact.
There's almost the same amount
of indigenous people in the US
as there are Jews.
You know that?
I got you something.
Sort of a push present.
I thought we weren't supposed to do
baby presents until after they're born.
[ASHER] It isn't for
the baby, it's for you.
Well, you didn't have to do that.
I do deserve it but
What are you doing?
Okay, clear some space.
- Move that out.
- Okay.
Thank you.
- Oh
- All right.
- Take the cover off slowly.
- Okay.
What is it?
It's Questa Lane.
I'm giving it to
Abshir as a gift to you.
You're giving him a model of his house?
I'm giving him the real house to own.
To live in forever.
Well, I know we've talked about
having to move them out at some point
and I was thinking about that,
and I don't know, it just
didn't sit right with me.
So I thought
why don't we give them the whole house?
Ash, that's so generous of you.
You're not a material person.
And I was searching for, you
know, push gift ideas online
and they were all
jewelry and stuff and
It's just not you.
♪ ♪ ♪
What makes you happy is
other people being happy.
So the gift is their faces,
when we tell them about this.
And the model home is kind
of a memory of that feeling.
Can we afford this?
We're we're not taking
money from my parents anymore.
We never did. Those were loans.
if we go broke, good.
You know, because we
still have each other.
I don't fucking need anything else.
♪ ♪ ♪
We can always live in this little thing.
Toda raba.
[WHITNEY] Oh, look, it's them.
I love it when you're happy.
♪ ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ ♪
- [ASHER] You okay?
- Yep.
[ASHER] Hi. How are you?
[ABSHIR] I don't know, man.
You call me up and you say
you want to talk to me and
I don't have time to prepare,
so I was wondering if I should
have my cousin here, you know,
if you want to move us out.
- My cousin is a lawyer.
- Oh. No
I know you'd be nice
to me and all, but
- I just wondering.
- No, no, no. Not at all.
No, no, no, you don't have
to worry about any of that.
Yeah, yeah. We've come
with very good news. Um
Are the girls here?
- [ABSHIR] No, they're out.
- [WHITNEY] Okay.
That's too bad.
We wanted to share it
with all of you at once.
- [WHITNEY] It's fine.
- Yeah, it's okay.
You can tell them.
We don't want you to move out.
In fact
we'd like you to stay here forever.
This home is yours.
You own it.
No strings attached.
A gift from us to you.
That's my spare key. You have it now.
You're on your own.
We'd also like to present you
with these clay nesting bowls
made by members of the San Pedro Pueblo.
For you. [LAUGHS]
Who pays for the property
taxes for the rest of the year?
- We could do that.
- We'd be happy to do that.
- Yeah.
- Absolutely.
Who is that?
He's just a friend.
Uh, can I have the
the money?
Uh, cash and then I'll pay.
It'll help my credit.
You want the Oh,
for the property taxes.
Yeah, yeah, we can
figure all that out later.
But you own the home.
It's yours. How does it feel?
Good. Good.
How soon will the transfer happen?
When will I take possession?
I'm doing all the
paperwork with the city.
And so I'm going to submit that.
I just need a couple of
signatures from you, and
Um But I could probably
complete it all today.
I know this is probably
pretty overwhelming for you.
I mean, with all the work
we've put into the property,
um, you know, it's probably
worth between 280,000
and $300,000, so
But it's an honor to be
able to do this for you.
And, you know, we've gotten
so close over this time
that you really do feel like family.
Oh! He's crying.
- It's okay if you want to cry.
- [WHITNEY] So sweet.
- No, it's dust, it's dust.
- Okay.
Um, so you'll be back later
today with the paperworks?
Yeah. Can definitely do it all today.
- Sure.
- Yeah, yeah.
Okay. That's it?
That's it.
- Congratulations. Yeah.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
Ooh! [SIGHS]
It was really special.
Thank you.
I recorded it all so
you'd have the moment.
You did! Oh!
- Yeah.
- My cousin is a lawyer.
Oh. So I guess he didn't really respond.
That's okay, though. I
mean Yeah, it's good.
I think I think he was
putting on a strong face.
You know, we don't know what he's
[SIGHS] What he's going through. He
He'll process it
in his own way, in his own
- time, you know.
- Are you okay?
Are you okay right now? What's going on?
Yeah, I'm okay. I think it's just
It's Braxton Hicks or something.
- It's just
- Is the head turning down?
No, he'll flip.
- Okay.
- Closer to the date.
This is just It'll happen naturally.
- Okay.
- Okay.
This is going to let
you continuously monitor
the pressure inside and
outside the baby room
so you'll know if there's a leak
coming from inside of the house.
But this side of the
home will stay passive.
And the baby room was
climate-controlled A/C, yeah?
Is there any way that we
could hide that panel a bit?
I use the house as a
showroom sometimes, so
"Abatement" looks a little scary
and I just don't want
people freaking out
and thinking that passive
homes are bad for babies.
Are we going to tell people
it's a podcasting studio?
Are these homes not bad for babies?
- Then why are we doing all this?
- Oh, come on.
You're not a fucking moron. Come on!
Is that all you got?
- Come on, man.
- Just till he's one, honestly.
- Okay.
- The summers have been crazy.
We're not going to gamble with his life.
I could hide the panel.
- I could hide it.
- Thank you.
Once all the air is released,
you could open the door.
- Mm.
Oh, fuck! I got a gift for the baby.
- Ta-da!
- It's to hang over the crib.
- Thank you.
He'll only have good dreams with that.
- Ah! Thank you.
- You're welcome.
That's so sweet.
Um, we are actually not accepting gifts
until after the baby is born, but
- Oh, okay.
- It's so nice of you.
I understand.
I'll give it to you after he's born.
- [WHITNEY] Perfect. Okay.
- Okay.
Did we tell you it was a boy?
I think so.
I didn't I didn't say anything.
Maybe I heard it in passing.
- It's okay.
- It's fine.
- Yeah, don't worry.
- I won't tell anyone.
I'm telling everybody.
I'll be at the truck.
- Thanks, okay.
- Thank you for everything.
You're welcome.
Where the fuck did you meet that
guy? That was fucking insane.
- I just met him. I was
- Okay, never again.
- Never again.
- He's not. He's fired.
- I'm firing him today.
- Okay. Thank you.

- [DOUGIE] Yes, who is this?
- This is Moses, the doula.
I'm in the car with
Whitney, and she's in labor.
- Things are moving very quickly.
- Unbelievable.
Something weird happened to Asher.
He flew up and he's in a tree.
He's holding onto a tree.
Someone has to go be with him.
Oh, my God! All right. I
know exactly what to do.
I'm going to go and get him, alright?
- [WHITNEY] Go, Dougie, go!
- Congratulations.
Aaaah! Aaaah!
How did he get up there?
I don't know.
He said he fell.
Well, they're gonna have to
get him out from up there.
Hey, what did you fall from?
From the overhang.
- I just landed up here.
Yo, Asher!
Ash, man, how you doing?
Exciting stuff, huh?
Big day.
- What's going on?
- I can't get down.
What you doing up there?
Something's happening to me.
I'm scared.
I totally get it.
I'd be fucking scared, too.
But look, you see that
little "V" up there?
I just want you to
to wriggle down and climb
down for me, alright?
I can't.
I will fly away.
Yeah, Moses mentioned you flew up there.
You always were a good climber.
Not that athletic, but a great climber.
I feel like gravity is like
pulling me upwards.
It's fucking heavy stuff, I get it.
But look, you do you, all right?
You come down at your own speed,
I'm going to be right here.
I'm not going anywhere, alright?
- You promise me that, right?
- Yes.
- All right.
Hi, Bixby. Text Remy:
"How close are you and
do you have your drone?"
Yo, my man.
How'd he get up there?
You see him climb?
- No.
- You didn't see him go up?
I see him up there. I didn't
see how he got up there.
He was there already.
I just, yeah, when I walked up
he was just hanging up there.
All right.
Yo, Ash, you doing good?
Just call for help.
It's on the way. It's
on the way, all right?
You just hang tight.
My arms are getting tired!
I love you, bro.
[DOCTOR] He's breech and
he's coming out feet first.
We're going to need to do a C-section.
But it's alright.
It's completely normal.
And the heartbeat is strong.
- [WHITNEY] Can he come with me?
- As soon as the baby comes out.
But I need him before. Why
can't he be with me before?
- When did you check on Asher?
- [MOSES] Asher's fine.
- Dougie's with him.
- We need to go right now.
Everything's going
to be okay, all right?
Can I get help in here? We
need to go back to the OR.
You're having his baby right now.
- Okay.
- I'm going to get in there.
I'm going to be with you
as soon as I can, okay?
- You got this, Mama.
- You are in great hands.
- You're not coming with me?
- I'm not going to.
But the surgeon is excellent.
I know him very well.
- Keep your hands inside.
- Relax, it'll be fine.
You have it, Whitney.
Moms can do anything.
- Just close your eyes.
You'll see I'm right there
with you the whole time.
