Touched by an Angel (1994) s02e17 Episode Script

Out of the Darkness

1 Come on, guys.
Come on, guys.
Come on.
I can't see.
Come on.
Do I look as stupid as I feel? Absolutely, but don't blame me.
It was your husband's idea.
Partners at work.
Partners at gift giving.
Okay, Bonnie.
What are you two up to? The Yellow Pages.
Well, who says you guys don't know how to make a girl feel special? Page 82.
That is such a great ad! Thank you.
Thank you.
I wrote that.
You did not.
Where's, uh, where's Jesse? Well, he's probably playing with that stupid toy piano you bought him.
Well, I'd like to buy him a real one.
We just bought a house.
We're not buying a piano.
I can go back to work.
You have a job.
It's taking care of Jesse.
I know what my job is.
Then why do we have to keep having this conversation over and over again? Ahem.
You know, I don't hear Jesse at all.
You know, when he gets this quiet, it's not a good sign.
He's probably breaking something.
When you have kids, man, lock them in their room till they're 21.
He's joking, right? Jess? Jesse? Jesse, come on out.
Jess? Steve.
Come here right now! Honey, come on! Come on, it's ( gasps ) Just come in here, Jess! Jesse, don't do that! ( Screaming ) Jess! ( Screaming ) Call 911.
He fell off the roof.
Hi, Mommy.
Oh, baby! Ohh! Oh, baby.
Oh, are you okay? Swear to God, Jesse, what do you think you're doing? I'm sorry, Daddy.
I'm very sorry.
BONNIE: Oh, it's all right.
We're just happy you're okay.
Great job of watching him, Mom.
Not now, Steve.
The lady caught me.
What lady? The lady in the white hat.
Are you sure you didn't hit your head? Come on, let's go inside.
It's freezing out here.
I was flying.
No, you weren't.
You were falling, and you could have really gotten hurt.
Jesse, I want you off that roof, okay? I'm gonna get Jesse some ice cream.
It's not every day you fall off a roof and get caught by a lady in a white hat.
It makes me crazy to think of what could have happened.
Well, I think he's young.
His bones are flexible, and he landed right, and I think we were very, very lucky.
No, no ice cream.
I'll go pick some up.
MATTHEW: Jesse loves chocolate chip.
No, he doesn't.
You do.
Want me to come with you? No, I'll be right back.
Jesse, you gave me the scare of my life.
Oh, everything's okay now, sweetie.
( Chuckles ) Yes, I remember that day very well, in fact.
I was still in Search-And-Rescue then.
Oh, it was a wonderful day to be able to help that family.
Uh-huh, well, you saved little Jesse all right, but the family didn't live happily ever after, I'm afraid.
The father Steve he had a very bad car accident.
Good morning, Mr.
It's a beautiful day today.
How are we feeling? Better? Hmm Mr I didn't think so.
He's in a coma.
The doctors say it's irreversible.
MONICA: What a sad ending to a beautiful story.
Oh, we're not even close to the end, angel girl.
When did this happen? The day you were there.
But that was I know.
It's time to get to work.
Work? But how could I help someone in a coma? You can't.
It's time to wake up.
I am really hungry.
Bell? How long have I been here? Counting today? About five years.
Five years? ♫ When you walk ♫ ♫ Down the road ♫ ♫ Heavy burden ♫ ♫ Heavy load ♫ ♫ I will rise ♫ ♫ And I will walk with you ♫ ♫ I'll walk with you ♫ ♫ Till the sun don't even shine ♫ ♫ Walk with you ♫ ♫ Every time ♫ ♫ I tell you, I'll walk with you ♫ ♫ Walk with you ♫ ♫ Believe me, I'll walk with you.
♫ You may have some memory lapses for a while, but it should all come back.
In long-term coma cases, we almost always see adverse physical effects, but you seem perfectly fine.
You sound disappointed.
No, not at all.
Just stunned.
You're stunned.
I went to sleep and woke up five years older.
I'll go call your wife now.
I still don't see why I can't call her myself.
Well, in situations like this, getting a phone call from somebody's who been in a coma for five years can be pretty traumatizing.
DOCTOR: All right, here we go.
I've been parting my hair on the right for five years? Whoa.
Whoa! Hello there.
You've had quite a nap.
Yeah, I guess so.
Although there haven't been any breakthroughs in hospital food since I've been gone.
( Chuckling ): I'm Dr.
I'm the facility's resident counselor.
Counselor? You must have the wrong room.
Well, Mr.
Bell, the world is different than when you left it, and I'm just available to talk in case you need help making the transition.
And This is Monica.
She's your physical therapist.
Well, everything seems to be working fine.
Well, I'm sure it is, but you haven't walked or run or lifted or moved at all for five years, and so your muscles are gonna have to be retrained.
That's where Monica comes in.
Yes, I'll be, um, physically therapizing you.
So, uh, where to begin? I guess I'd better stretch out before I try to walk, huh? Stretching.
Well, that's good, yes.
We, uh, we should stretch some things.
Please remember that his system has had quite a shock, so we want to bring him back slowly in every way.
So it might be best if you didn't try to catch him up on five years all in one day, all right? Are you ready? Yeah.
You ready? Yep.
TESS: Look who's here.
JESSE: Dad! Oh! I am so glad to see you.
STEVE: Oh! Oh! Oh, Steve.
Oh, Steve! Bon, I have dreamed about you every night for five years, I swear.
Oh What happened to little Jesse? I got bigger.
You sure did.
Do you even remember who I am? Yeah, I watch videotapes of you all the time.
Do you remember when mum put icing in your face for my birthday? Yeah, yeah, sure, I do.
Come here.
Oh Looks like a happy ending after all.
No, baby, you're just reading the introduction.
STEVE: Oh Okay, I got it all planned out.
First day I get home, I get up, and I take a run or maybe a walk.
Then the three of us drive up to the mountains, and we breathe the air, take a walk around the lake If I can remember where the lake is.
And then it's back home for pizza from What's the name of the place? Nick's pizza.
That's right.
Extra cheese and pineapple.
Sounds like quite a day.
Wait till you hear day two.
Hey, you're the health care professional.
When exactly will day one be? Well, perhaps a week, perhaps less.
It depends on your progress.
Progress? You want to see progress? Well, here you go.
Mom went to the ladies' room, so she'll take about forever.
You know how women are.
Do you know how women are? Not really.
Well, we'll get to that in time.
So, have you been doing plenty of guy stuff since I've been in here? Yeah, Matthew comes by the house.
Oh, Dad, I drew some pictures for you.
Jesse! Do you want me to get the spoon? Yeah, get the spoon and the fork.
Pick up whatever you can.
Don't worry.
I-I got I got plenty of food here.
Dad, I told some of the kids at school that I'd bring you in for show-and-tell when you get better, you know.
Come here.
I missed you so much, Jesse.
You okay, pal? Yeah.
Mom said there's some stuff that you didn't remember.
It's, uh, coming back slowly but surely, but I remember you.
That's what's important, right? Right.
So, uh now that you're awake, um, everything's gonna be okay, right? Oh, yeah.
So, what is it I've missed in the world? Well, let's see.
Was the Berlin Wall still there? There's no more Berlin Wall? Yeah, they tore it down, and now they're selling parts of it in Bloomingdale's.
They're selling the Berlin Wall in Bloomingdale's? Yeah.
Oh, and remember the soldiers in Kuwait? Right.
They're gone.
But they're in Bosnia now.
What's Bosnia? Oh, and, uh, Dad, I've got really bad news about O.
I'm feeling good.
I'll be doing the lambada in no time.
I don't think they do that anymore.
No? Oh, did you see these? Jesse made these for me.
Uh, this is us at home.
This is, this is Bon.
That's Jesse and that's me.
Very nice, although you don't strike me as the suspenders type.
I'm not.
That's artistic license, I guess.
Nice piano.
We don't have a piano or a dog.
Well, it looks like you do now.
I'm just gonna go and get some lotion so I can massage your neck, okay? WOMAN ( over P.
): Orderly with a wheelchair to Maternity.
Orderly with a wheelchair to Maternity.
Come on, come on.
Bell & Tracy Architects.
What's happened? What is going on? I'm sorry I took so long, but I had to go Thank you, sir.
Where'd you come from? Well, I figured you'd come here, and my cab was faster than your cab.
( Dog barking ) Where did he come from? That must be the dog from Jesse's pictures, huh? It's been a long time.
There's no car in the driveway, and I don't have a key, but I do remember we used to keep a spare key in a fake rock.
I can't even remember where it is.
See? It's all coming back.
A piano.
I'd say so.
Bonnie gave up on me.
She accepted what was and went on.
That's all you can do.
( Key turning in lock ) ( chattering ) Matt! Steve! Gosh, it's so good to see you.
MATTHEW: Mm! You never were a good driver.
Bon, things sure do look different.
I wasn't expecting to see you here.
I live here.
Steve, we need to talk.
Well, talk.
We'll talk.
We've got plenty of time to talk.
What's the matter? The doctors said you would never wake up.
The doctors were wrong.
I'm back! That's the problem.
What are you saying? We're not married anymore.
BONNIE: I got a divorce last year.
You divorced me? When I was in a coma? How can you do that? Since I had your power of attorney, the court appointed me to represent you.
STEVE: Well, you didn't do a very good job.
It's not Matthew's fault.
Steve, I waited for four years.
The doctors said that you would never wake up.
I I had to get on with my life.
Get on with your life? I may have forgotten a few things, but I clearly remember a vow you made to be with me in sickness and in health till death do us part.
Now, I'm not dead.
As far as I'm concerned, you're still my wife.
She's not.
What the hell is going on here? Just tell him! I can't stand this anymore! We're engaged, Steve.
We're getting married in three weeks.
You stole my wife? That is not what happened.
I took care of her after you were gone, and we came together because we both cared about you.
Well, excuse me for not saying thank you.
Steve Does Jesse know about this? No.
I haven't told him yet.
This is unbelievable! How could you do this to me?! You were my best friend! I still am your best friend.
Like hell you are.
You stole my wife.
You probably ran my business into the ground! I can't even afford an ad in the Yellow Pages! There is no business.
What? We sold it to pay your medical bills.
You sold my business? Our business.
And we had no choice.
No choice.
Bon's right.
( Slamming ) No one calls her Bon but me.
Steve, look, I know this is difficult.
Difficult? The only difficulty I have is the minute I turn my back, you stole my family! Turn your back? You were in a coma! Yeah, and completely unable to defend what was mine! It wasn't like you and Bon weren't already having problems.
Oh, geez! Oh, my God.
BONNIE: Oh, my Matthew, are you all right? Oh, my God Steven, you can't just go around whacking people like that.
You definitely are back, aren't you? Get some ice for that eye.
Honey, I'm so sorry.
Are you okay? MATTHEW: Yeah, yeah.
Where are my car keys? Or did you steal my car, too? Your keys to your car are still on the key rack.
( Door slamming ) I can't believe this.
This is how this all started.
What do you mean? Thanks, Monica.
Five years ago, Steve was gonna take that big boat of a car of his to get some ice cream.
BONNIE: Steve went to get his keys, but he couldn't find them.
So, he took my little car instead.
The police told me he would have been okay if he had been driving his own car, but mine just crumpled like an empty soda can, and all because he couldn't find a set of keys.
Life is very cruel.
( Car engine starts ) Would you excuse me? I like this place much better now.
Tess, it's all my fault.
Steve was in a coma because of me.
He lost five years of his life because of one thing that I did.
Please don't go overreacting on me.
I'm not overreacting.
It couldn't be clearer.
Oh, Tess, what have I done? Oh, don't worry.
It's gonna work out all right.
Don't worry.
( Sighs ) I had to get out of there.
Then I realized, "Where am I supposed to go?" I've got no wife no house, no business, no best friend.
Steve, there's something you need to know.
I know, I know.
Keep stretching.
No, it's not that.
I know this will be hard for you to believe, but I'm an angel.
I got the Easter bunny in the backseat.
It's true.
Prove it.
Make the windshield wipers go on.
We're not fairies.
We don't grant wishes.
But it's always good to check your wipers.
Give me a million dollars.
You're not listening.
This is not about proof.
It's about the truth.
Five years ago, I was sent by God to rescue your son from the roof.
I don't believe this.
Do you remember Jesse talking about the woman who caught him? Yeah.
The lady in the white hat? How did you know about that? You? Yes.
I did something else that day as well.
I lifted up your keys to look at a little angel on the chain, and that was why you couldn't find them, and that's why you were in the wrong car that day.
Because of you? I shouldn't have done it, but I did.
If there's something we should know, it's how delicate life is and that little things cause big things.
This is your fault? It wasn't supposed to happen? I'm sorry.
I don't know why this has happened to you, Steven, but God does, and No, Steve, wait.
( Door slamming ) Why, so you can put me in another coma? I'm so sorry.
Let's go past the meaninglessness of apologies and get straight to a solution.
You give me back my wife, my son and my business, we'll call the whole thing even.
I can't do that.
Sure, windshield wipers you can do.
I'm sorry.
Look, I know you're upset.
You're damn right I am! You listen to me.
You got me into this, and you're gonna find a way to get me out, and until you do, you and your God can just stay the hell away from me.
Get out of my car.
Now you keep up with your walking.
If I find out that you haven't, Dr.
Tess is gonna come and run you ragged.
Don't make me put on my Air Jordans now.
TESS: Baby? The doctor's in.
I haven't seen you this down since the time the cappuccino machine broke.
That was a joke, by the way.
I want off this case.
What? Send me back to the choir.
Now, just hold on.
I was selfish, curious, undisciplined.
I took those keys, and three lives were ruined.
How could I do that? That was five years ago, and you've learned a lot since then.
So has Steve.
( Sighs ) Oh, please, Tess, just fire me.
Oh, now you stop this right now, Miss Wings.
This is where you're supposed to be, trust me.
I do trust you.
It's myself I don't trust.
I don't know what I'm doing and I don't know what to do about it.
I've made a mess that I can't clean up.
So you're just gonna walk off the case without permission, huh? Yes.
All right.
How are ya? Fine.
Baby, this is somebody else's department.
Is this a crisis? It is now.
Monica, is it? Yes.
I'm Al, Crisis Intervention.
How are you, Tess? Hello, Al.
You're an angel? I'd like to think of myself as an angel's angel, yeah.
She does, too.
I'm with Internal Affairs.
I work solo, angel to angel, exclusively.
Don't do people.
They're too human.
I'm confused.
Of course you are.
That's why I'm here.
We need to have a little powwow.
Tess, darling, you don't mind if I use your office for a minute, do you? Yes, I do.
Always the kidder.
( Chuckles ) Baby this is out of my hands now.
But I will be praying for you.
Sit, sit.
So, you messed up, huh? Yes.
And you're feeling lost because you think angels aren't here to mess up, right? Right.
Right, right.
Well ( chuckling ) That's not true.
Now, back to work.
Excuse me.
What, something's not clear, my dear? Yes, everything's not clear.
Look, I'll spell it out for you.
We mess up sometimes.
You haven't exactly thrown him for a loop, you know.
He can handle it, so get over it.
That's it? That's it? Get over it? You repented? Any plans to play with other people's key chains again? Okay, that's it.
Well, I'm sorry, Al, that might be it for you, but it's not it for me.
I have a commitment to these people.
And I have a 4:00 appointment in Bermuda, thank God.
Look, stew a while, beat yourself up a little.
Think about what I said.
I'll catch up with you later, okay? Have a good one.
How did she get this job? I think she knew somebody.
I don't understand.
Jesse, you know that I love you very much, and Matthew loves you, too.
Yeah, but he's not my dad.
Honey, no, of course he's not, but but he has been around since you were very little, and and Matthew and I want to be a family now.
But we already have a family.
Jesse, this is very difficult for a kid to understand.
Give me a break.
Look, maybe this is something that you and your mum need to talk about alone.
Jesse, Matthew has been like a father to you.
I already have a father.
Mom, I thought when Dad woke up, you were gonna marry him again.
Oh, honey, I know this is very complicated.
Well, I'll try and understand.
Try me.
You were just a little boy when your dad had his accident, and you don't remember a lot of things about that time, about a lot of the problems that were going on.
And now your dad has come back all of a sudden, and-and you're really excited about that, but I think you're remembering some things about him that may not be true.
This is complicated.
I know.
Mom, do you love dad anymore? I love that he gave me you.
( Doorbell rings ) We need to talk.
I can't.
I'm late.
You owe me this much.
Bon, I really need to talk to you.
I know, but I just wish it weren't here.
I don't know what happened while I was gone, and I don't care; I just want us to be together.
It's too late.
It's not.
You're not married yet.
Are you kidding me? You think we can go back to the way it was? You actually think I would want to? Steve, for months, I sat by your bed.
I talked to you.
I read to you from magazines, and and after a while, I started telling you things about me, that I never would have trusted you with before.
And for the first time in my life, I wasn't afraid to tell you who I was.
It's funny, isn't it? Steve, I don't want to hurt your feelings, but the truth is, those were the happiest times I ever spent with you.
And the hardest thing to face was that if, by some miracle you ever woke up, nothing would have changed.
You'd walk out of that hospital the same man you were the day you walked out of this house.
Bon, don't do this.
Jesse needs me.
You stay away from him.
What are you talking about? You know exactly what I'm talking about.
I don't.
But whatever it is, we can work it out.
There is nothing to work out.
In a couple of weeks, I am gonna have the wedding that you wouldn't let me have.
I'm gonna have the marriage that you wouldn't let me have.
I'm gonna have the happy family that you wouldn't let me have, whether you like it or not.
You think so? Let me make you a promise.
That wedding will never happen.
I will do whatever I have to do to stop it.
( Sobbing ) Listen, if you're thinking about getting back on the case, well, kiddo, it's now or never.
I hate the cold.
That's why I hate taking human form, because you have to feel what they do.
That's the same reason I love taking human form.
Ah, so you will go back to the job.
I didn't say that.
I know.
I did.
See, your assignment is Steve, but my assignment is you, so if you'll just go back to Steve, I'll catch the next cloud home and be back at room temperature.
Al, I'm here to help people, and I've hurt someone really badly.
I don't know how to come back from that.
Just do what I do.
Pretend your mistakes never existed.
Poof! But God knows that I've made them.
He knows that I've made them, too, but He forgives me.
I guess I just don't know how to forgive myself.
Oh, excuse me.
If God is willing to forgive you, who are you not to forgive yourself? You think you know better than God? No, not at all.
Listen to me.
When God gave us free will, He knew we'd mess up with it sometimes, right? Right.
You tell this stuff to people every day.
How come I gotta remind you? ( Sighs ) God's got a plan.
It's like the wind.
Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there.
I'm sorry.
It's just that I don't feel like I'm doing God's work.
You know, it's as if He has a plan, and because of me, everything went astray.
Oh, Monica, if my face wasn't frozen, I'd laugh out loud.
Do you really think that you have the power to mess up God's plans? I mean, do you really think God is up there now saying, "Oh, no, Monica messed up my plans.
" "What am I going to do?" No.
I-I suppose you're right.
Monica, God loves all His creations.
That includes you and that includes me.
And He would never leave us when we mess up.
That's when we need Him the most.
But I still don't know how to help Steve get his life back.
Do you know why God puts faces on the front of the body instead of the back? I give up.
It's not a joke.
That's a question.
And I'll tell you this.
Once you figure out the answer, you'll have solved your problem, hmm? ( Bell tolling ) I spoke with Mrs.
Candles down both aisles will be no problem.
Now, then, did you want an arbor at the altar, too? They're very nice, very lovely unless you're too tall.
( laughing ) That sounds wonderful.
Fine, fine.
Now this is where we'll stand.
You'll be switched, of course.
I will begin the ceremony and I will say a few words.
And then I will ask if there's anyone who knows why you should not be married.
Let him speak now or forever hold his peace.
And I'll say, "Yeah, me.
" And who are you? I'm her husband.
My ex-husband.
Not anymore.
What? I had a lawyer look over the settlement you negotiated for me.
When I told him that the man with my power of attorney was marrying my ex-wife, he lit up like a pinball machine.
Best-case scenario it's called conflict of interest.
Worst-case conspiracy and fraud.
It's gonna take the judge about ten seconds to invalidate the deal and the divorce.
In the meantime I have an injunction.
Oh, my.
You jerk.
Bonnie, wait! Wait! I hope you're happy.
I hope you're not.
Same old Steve.
Five years or no five years, you treat everyone like garbage, and you expect them to like it.
What are you talking about? Bonnie doesn't want you.
And Jesse wouldn't if he remembered how you used to treat him.
( Grunts ) We'll refile the divorce.
We'll make a new settlement.
You can have everything, but you can't have Bonnie.
( Grunts and groans ) Steven Thomas Bell, God has sent me to help you.
Yeah, you've been really helpful so far.
Well, sometimes the help that we need is not always the help that we want.
Do you know why God put faces on the front of people's bodies? No, I can't say that I do.
I figured it out.
Faces are on the front so that people can see where they're going, not where they've been.
We have to go forward, not backward.
I won't let this stupid accident ruin my life, and I am not gonna lose my family.
Steven, you lost them long before the accident.
That's a lie! I'm sorry to say that it's not.
You've made some terrible mistakes.
Now, God will be there to help you and forgive you, but you still must bear the consequences.
What mistakes? What consequences? Do you know what that is? A spoon? The spoon.
I-I scooped ice cream with it.
It's funny.
Most people don't use a wooden spoon for that.
I think you kept it around for something else.
I can't remember.
You can remember.
You just don't want to.
It's kind of an antique, isn't it? It was my grandmother's and then my father's.
It's just one of those dumb things that gets passed down, I guess.
I think they passed something else along to you as well.
MAN: Steven! Who in the hell do you think you are?! I'll teach you to touch my things! Where's that spoon?! Get that spoon right now! I'm gonna tan your hide! Did you hear me?! Bring it to me now! Steven, bring it to me now! Do you remember now why Jesse was up on the roof five years ago? I'm afraid to.
The truth will hurt, but it's nothing to fear.
Steve, come on.
Let's ( clatter ) JESSE: Uh-oh.
Hang on.
Don't move.
What are you doing? I was looking for some ice cream.
You get out of there! Why are you always into everything? Why can't you learn? Are you stupid? Every time I turn around, you're into something.
Get the spoon.
BONNIE: Steve? No problem.
You clean this mess up, and you go up to your room; I'll be up later.
BONNIE: Steve, what is it? Nothing.
I'm coming.
MONICA: But he didn't take the spoon that day.
This time he wasn't going to wait for his beating.
This time he decided to hide.
So that little boy went out on the roof.
Jesse, come on out.
Jess? ( Gasps ) Steve.
Come here right now! Honey, come on! Come on, baby.
Come on.
It's okay.
Come here.
Just stop right there.
Jesse, don't do that! Come here, Jesse.
Come on, baby.
Come here.
( Screaming ) Because of me? He was up on the roof because of me? Your grandmother punished your father again and again with this wooden spoon, and then you were beaten with it by him, and all of your rage and all of your pain boiled inside you for years until you had a helpless child of your own to pass it on to.
So now God is gonna punish me? He's gonna take away my family? No, God is not taking something away from you.
He's giving you something.
It's a gift, the chance to start over.
Oh, my God.
What have I done? What have I done? God will forgive you even if you can't forgive yourself, Steven.
I've seen it happen.
I don't deserve to be forgiven.
Well, He will forgive you anyway if you'll just let Him.
Steven, you can't change who you were, but with God's help, you can change who you are, and today you can start over, right now, right here.
Let it all go.
Walk away.
Oh, Jesse.
( Panting ): Jesse.
Oh, Jesse.
Oh, Jesse.
I don't know when the invitations are going out now.
Everything's on hold.
Look, can I call you back tomorrow? Thanks.
( Sighs ) Jesse's asleep.
Come here.
( Sighs ) I called my friend downtown about a restraining order.
He comes anywhere near any of us, he goes right to jail.
Thank you.
( Doorbell rings ) ( knock on door ) ( door opens ) Get out, or I'm calling the police! He means it, Steven.
So do I.
You were an abusive person before the accident, and five years later, you're still a dangerous man, but I'm different.
I didn't have the strength to stand up to you before, but I do now, and I am not gonna let you hurt us anymore.
You're right.
I-I-I just need to say something to both of you, and I won't blame you if you don't want to listen, but I hope you will.
I know that I was a horrible person The person you saw at the chapel today.
I treated both of you and Jesse very badly.
And if there's any way I could take that back, I would.
I'm not gonna contest the divorce.
I won't stand in the way of your wedding.
It's the only way that I can prove to you that I'm not such a bad guy deep down Way deep down, maybe And I want you to know that I didn't know who I was before, but I know who I am now.
And I'm asking you to forgive me if you can.
JESSE: I forgive you, Dad.
Oh, Jesse.
I'm so sorry.
STEVE: I love you so much.
I love you, too, Dad.
Not bad.
Not bad at all, girl.
Well, I learned from the master.
The master.
I think I like that better than "angel's angel," don't you? Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to join Bonnie and Matthew in the vows of matrimony.
They are here on their own volition and in the sight of God.
If there is anyone who knows why they should not be joined in the sacred bond, let them speak now or forever hold their peace.
Bonnie, will you have Matthew as your husband to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him in sickness and in health, Oh, I just love weddings.
And forsaking all others, will you be faithful to him as long as you both shall live? BONNIE: I do.
And, Matthew, will you have Bonnie to be your wife, to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live? ( Cooing )
