Trying (2020) s02e08 Episode Script

I'm Scared

Oh, my God. What is going on?
Okay. I really need to start
seeing people get dressed now.
This is not 11:15 Nikki
anymore, this is
Well, this is 11:28 Nikki.
And if you don't like her,
imagine what twelve o'clock
Nikki's gonna look like.
So let's just up our game.
Oh, Lorna, Lorna.
I need you to talk to the photographer
because he's taking pictures
of the geese on the lawn
and they're not officially
involved in the wedding,
but if he takes any more, everyone's
gonna think it's geese-themed,
and we're better than that.
- Okay.
- Okay? Okay.
I talked to the head poncho.
We missed breakfast,
but he said I could take
some leftover sausages.
Oh, my God. What is he doing?
She should have paid for someone proper.
Who uses her fiancé's barber?
- Okay. I think it is there.
- Okay.
How we getting on here?
Amy is now done.
It's the pop star Sebnem Ferah
meets the great Levent Yuksel.
I don't know who those people
are or why they're meeting.
I can only assume to talk
about how weird their hair is.
For a new theme let's try
nice hair meets quickly. Okay?
My God.
God, weddings are fun.
Did I, uh Did I tell you
I'm giving up the writing?
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah.
Heading back to finance.
Freddy. Freddy.
- Can I have a word?
- Yeah.
And I know exactly
what you're gonna say.
"Excuse me, Scott. I seem to recall
you declaring yourself a socialist
on June 18th, 2011
after determining that capitalism,
or should I say neo-feudalism,
is incompatible with democracy".
Well, here's what I'd say to that
Right. Listen, mate, I need a
bit of, uh, relationship advice.
Well, um, I'm single,
and I'm at a wedding with
my wife and her boyfriend.
So, yeah, I'm pretty much
definitely your guy.
Okay. I'm thinking about
asking Nikki to marry me.
Mate. That is awesome.
- Congratulations.
- But here.
What, here at the wedding?
Yeah. I mean, we wouldn't tell
anyone about it, obviously.
Oh, I don't know, mate.
Proposing to someone at a wedding,
that is like murdering
someone at a funeral.
That is gonna draw focus.
Is it a bit much, do you think?
It's a hat on a hat, mate.
- Yeah. Yeah, you're probably right.
- Yeah.
Right. I gotta go. Got a wax booked.
What do you think?
Oh, hold on. Hello?
Can you Can you get a signal here?
I don't know. I've had my phone
turned off so I could enjoy the spa.
- There's a spa?
- Yeah, by the orangery.
- There's an orangery?
- Yeah, right behind the sun terrace.
There's a No. Okay. Stop.
But I've, uh, I've got to hand out
six buttonholes by 2:00 p.m.
and I didn't want the stress
of that hanging over me.
- Okay.
- What you doing?
- Nailing it.
- Oh, yeah?
'Cause I'm a manager now and
I know how to get shit done.
- Oh, for God's sake. I've got to go.
- Where you going?
Ooh, don't forget the rings.
Hey! No more geese.
No, no, no, no. No more geese.
No, they're lovely. It's just
It's not a geese-themed wedding.
- Karen. Karen.
- What's going on?
- Well, she won't come out.
- Why?
Best guess this side of the door is
probably some sort of Scott-based doubt.
What? Why?
Well, he's just a bit manscape-y
and metrosexual, isn't he?
No, I mean
Like one of those guys who fully
crosses his legs, like, knee on knee.
Yeah. Exactly.
- Kaz?
- We're okay for a while.
Kaz, can I come in?
Do I look okay?
Of course you do.
I don't like lots of people
looking at me.
Right. Aren't you a teacher?
Well, children aren't people.
You look beautiful.
I don't feel like me.
No, it's you.
Oh, I forgot. They're
asking about music.
Oh, I'm gonna play it off my phone.
Is there a Aren't there
adverts on that app?
They're not gonna cut in
and and ruin the mood?
I'm not paying for premium
just for one night.
- Yeah.
- Jesus.
That's definitely you.
I thought we were in the field.
No, he said there's been
a change of plan,
and we needed to carry on straight.
- Oh.
- Listen.
- Nikki.
- What?
- Have you seen the vicar?
- Ca
- Absolute VILF. Yeah.
- I was
- No.
- Isn't he?
Yeah, are you into him?
- Yeah. He's so fit.
- Really?
I love a man with a job.
Hi. Hi. Hi. Freddy.
Ah. Elliot.
I left my jacket on the train.
And my shirt.
Such a long way from the toilets.
I don't know why
everyone's following me.
Here we go. Here's a door.
- Oh, wow.
- Wow.
- Should I knock or what?
- Yeah. You should always knock.
- Oh, my God.
- Yeah.
- It's The Secret Garden.
- Yeah.
Jase, did you
Nah. No. Not a clue. No.
- Hello.
- Hello. Hiya.
- Jase.
- Hello.
Oh, Scott.
Hello, handsome.
- Look at this.
- This is so beautiful.
Are these our hydrangeas?
Yeah, it's just on a lend.
He's a sweet boy, but he's
got no brain for plants.
Bloody hell. How much did this lot cost?
Just wondering.
Has Erica got a favorite book?
Welcome to the Secret Garden.
I'm supposed to ask if
you'll sit on Scott's side
- Okay.
- because it's just a bit, well
- lopsided friends and family-wise.
- Is it?
- Okay. All right.
- Okay.
Thank you so much.
- Hiya.
- Hello. You all right?
The Secret Garden.
Do we sit on Scott's side?
Is your stomach feeling weird?
- I'm fine. Yeah.
- Just me?
You all right?
So, what? Are we getting those
hydrangeas back or what?
Yeah, we'll get them back.
Did you know about this?
Not really. I mean,
I built the arch but
You God.
What? It's a very basic wooden arch.
Oh, no, I can't.
This concealer's really
shit and expensive.
Oh, wow.
First cry since 2012.
- Mo Farah.
- Oh, right.
Thank you.
It's okay.
I mean, as a novel,
I still find it a little too insistent
on its own moral universe but
Thank you.
In the presence of God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we have come together
to witness the marriage
of Karen Mary Newman
and Scott Excalibur Atalanta Filburt.
"Love anything and your heart
will be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure
of keeping it intact,
you must give it to no one".
Do you think you could do
a pull-up on that arch?
"But it will become unbreakable.
- Oh, my
- To love is to be vulnerable".
That was beautiful.
You're a beautiful writer.
Oh, no. I d I didn't
Do they think I wrote that?
Well, if it's famous you're
supposed to say who it's by.
- Oh.
- In order to come to love another,
we must first come to love ourselves.
Will you love her, comfort her
and, forsaking all others,
keep yourself only unto her
as long as you both shall live?
I will.
I will.
I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Thank you.
Thank God for that.
I'm busting for a pee.
Very pleased the words
touched you, but no.
No current plans to publish.
Mm. You understand the
anatomy of sadness, don't you?
Oh, yeah, I know my onions.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah.
- Do you know the only man
- Go on.
who never disappointed me was Jesus?
Ah. Yeah.
Anyway, good to good catch up.
- Are you all right, Shakespeare?
- Yeah, yeah. You all right?
- Yeah.
- Um, lovely service, wasn't it?
I mean, no one's ever
not said that after a service,
but yeah, it was it was lovely.
Yeah. Well, let's go there.
Wait. Where we going?
The reception's that way.
Will you just walk with
me for a little second
before we before the speeches.
- Is that okay? Yeah.
- Okay.
I don't wanna be too long, though.
I need to explain the wedding gift.
I don't want her to think that we went
for the third cheapest thing on the list
like everyone else does
even though that's what
we definitely did do.
Oh, my God.
I love you
And, uh, I know that
proposing at a wedding
is a little bit, you know,
a man wearing a hat.
But since realizing that I should,
every day that I didn't,
it felt weird and strange, and it
almost felt like a sort of betrayal.
You are twice as amazing
as you need to be
for me to love you for the
rest of both of our lives.
All this is just leftover
amazing-ness that I don't ev
If there was a whole another
me here, right now,
there will be enough for him
to love for the rest of his life.
Nikki Newman.
Nikki New Nikki Newman.
Oh, my God. Nikki, are you gonna
say are you gonna say no?
This is a good time?
So sorry to gate crash.
- I did try to call.
- No, there's no signal.
- Only in the atrium.
- There's an atrium?
In the end, rang your
work, spoke to Jen.
I could make up a story, but the fact is
- that girl knows your email password.
- No.
But she had the good grace
to pretend it was a guess.
So, what's happened? Huh?
Okay, so, uh Right. We have
found ourselves in a situation.
Princess and Tyler's placements
have broken down.
Already? Why?
Nikki, these are complicated children,
and not everyone has the
stomach for the fight.
So now we have got two kids
sat in a council office
with nowhere to go.
Fosterers can't take them back.
Beds are already taken.
So I am here to ask
if you'll take Princess.
Temporarily at first, but with you,
there's a chance of it
becoming permanent.
Otherwise, it's just another foster
home in God knows where,
and that's just kicking
the can down the road.
But we would be asking you to take
a child you may not get to keep.
Well, uh, uh, why us?
Because you are passionate,
and you're committed,
and you built an extra room
in your house in a day.
And we don't have a
lot of other options.
Okay, can we have some time?
Yes. Yes, anytime in the next
60 seconds. Absolutely fine.
Okay, can we have a
little chat right here?
- Yes, yes. No, go on, go on.
- All right.
- Shit.
- Yes. Yeah. Okay.
- All right. What you feeling?
- Sick.
- What, good sick or bad sick? Or
- I don't know, Jason.
I'm wearing Spanx, so
it's complicating things.
We might not even be able to keep her.
She's sat in an office, Jason.
- On her own. With no one.
- I know. I know.
I know.
Oh, my God. I can't think
in these bloody shoes.
We moved on. I'm just
I'm scared to go back.
I know. I know.
Come on.
- Let's do it.
- Yeah, okay. Come on.
- Karen. We've got to go.
- What?
It's Princess.
It It's complicated,
but we may be taking her.
You joking.
I'm so sorry.
No, don't be sorry. Oh, my God.
You go and get your daughter.
- Oh, I love you. All right.
- I love you.
Come on. Let's go.
- Yeah, go on, go on.
- See ya later.
I'll text you the speech,
mate. Okay? Sorry.
- Follow me.
- All right. Okay.
Right! Okay! Go, go, go!
- Jason, the hand brake!
- Oh.
- Okay? Yeah.
- Yeah.
What's the collective noun for foxes?
I don't know, Jase. Why?
'Cause it just seems like the sort
of thing we should know now.
Can you look it up for me?
Yeah, okay.
Did you did you steal the little
shampoos from the hotel, yeah?
Yes, of course I stole the shampoos
from the hotel. We have a family now.
It's a a skulk. A skulk of foxes.

- Yep.
- Are you sure?
- Mm-hmm.
Are deciduous trees the ones that
- Jase, breathe, breathe.
- Yeah? Okay. All right.
- We're ready.
- Hmm.
Yeah. Yeah.
Can you look up deciduous trees for me?
Yes, okay.
I'm sad we're missing the speeches.
I bet they're beautiful.
So I have a list here
of people who specifically said
that this would never happen.
"Abigail Turner".
Yeah. No, we don't all need to look
at her. She knows who she is.
"Celeste Davies". There we go.
"Catherine Murphy".
Yep, there we are.
No plus-one? All right.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- All right?
- Good. Good.
- Hi.

So this is Nikki and Jason,
and they were wondering
whether you would like to go
and stay with them for a little while.
Yeah? Good girl.

No, sweetheart, because
Do you remember Tyler's
not coming with you today?
But we are gonna see him
on Tuesday. Aren't we?

Tyler a big old hug,
and we will see him on Tuesday?

that everything's okay.
You're gonna be great.
Ladies and gentlemen,

affection for Karen and Scott
as they take their first dance.
To some music which is
very close to Scott's heart.
- Are you ready?
- Yeah.
Don't be silly. Come on.
