Virgin River (2019) s01e07 Episode Script

If Truth Be Told

1 Are you sure I can't convince you to stay? No.
You were right.
It's time for me to go home.
Oh, I know, but I never said to cut your trip short.
- I know you didn't.
- Then why are you going? Hey, can you do me a favor? Can you get my blow dryer? I think it's in the bathroom.
Joey.
Stop.
Tell me what's going on.
- Joey.
- Hey! I'm not letting you leave - till we clear the air.
- [SCOFFS.]
You sound just like Dad.
No, I don't.
Yeah, you do.
Whenever we used to fight, he would say we couldn't do anything else until we made up.
I don't remember that.
Well we were kids.
It was a long time ago.
Yeah.
Hey.
I'm sorry.
I really wanted this visit to be special.
It was special.
No, it wasn't.
I mean, I made it all about me.
That isn't right.
Look, you can't always be the caretaker.
You know? Sometimes you need help.
I just don't get it.
You know, I feel like Bill just woke up one day and decided after fifteen years of marriage that we don't have anything in common.
How do you feel? Do you feel the same way? I don't know.
Maybe.
It's like we talk about the kids, and we talk about broken sprinkler heads, and we talk about his work but we're just not connected like we used to be, and I don't know if we'll ever get that back.
Look, I know Bill loves you.
Sometimes love isn't enough.
What can I do to help you? Oh Nothing.
Because I'm the only one who can decide how hard I wanna fight for my marriage.
Okay, well [SIGHS.]
why don't I come to LA? Then I can help with the kids.
It'll give you and Bill a chance to figure things out.
Okay? That's really sweet of you.
I can't ask you to do that.
[SIGHS.]
I can't.
And also I was wrong about you being here.
About this place.
I can see how good it is for you.
That makes me really happy.
[VEHICLE APPROACHING.]
Jo, let me help you.
[SIGHS.]
[SNIFFLES.]
Oh, gosh.
That's my car.
I gotta go.
Cancel the car.
Let me drive you to the airport.
- No.
- Okay? We can talk.
Oh No.
It's too late.
I can't cancel.
Also can you please apologize to Jack for me? I mean, my behavior at the Mingle was totally out of character.
Please [SIGHS.]
Just let me know if you need anything, okay? - Okay.
- Promise? Cross my heart.
I love you, kiddo.
I love you too.
[BIRDSONG.]
[DOG BARKING.]
Vernon? I'm back here.
Fishing? Well, I don't think this will work on ducks.
You could try hittin' them over the head.
[CHUCKLES.]
You didn't tell me you were going fishing.
Well, my comings and goings are of no concern to you.
That's not true.
Do you want some company? No, I do not.
I was headed over to Paige's.
You wanna come and get something for the road? I ate.
Isn't it a little late in the morning to be going fishing? Yeah, I would have left a lot earlier, except I was on the phone with that divorce attorney trying to convince him not to charge me for the meeting that you failed to attend.
You know, I never said I was going to make it.
[BOX RATTLES.]
Okay.
Spit it out.
You are all over the map with this divorce stuff, and it's making me just dizzy trying to follow you.
- Vernon.
- Don't "Vernon" me.
You're nuttier than a fruitcake.
And you know what? I'm a doctor.
That is an actual diagnosis.
Lock the door on your way out.
[DOOR SLAMS.]
[BIRDSONG.]
You've reached Charmaine.
Leave a message and I'll call you back.
Hey, it's me again.
I'm not sure if you're gettin' these messages, but I want to talk, so, please, can you call me back? Hey.
I, uh I gotta run out.
All right.
For the record, I would've knocked you all the way out.
You're late.
Wasn't sure I still had a job.
You know, I promised you a long time ago that I would always have your back.
This ain't Iraq.
Doesn't matter.
Won't happen again, I swear.
And that's a promise you actually plan to keep? Yeah.
I'm gonna try.
You know, Brady, you gotta you gotta do a little more than just try.
I mean it this time.
Okay, Jack? Well, you owe Mel and her sister an apology.
Yeah, I know.
I'll do right by them.
Hey.
- Hey.
- Um About last night.
- It's fine.
- No, it's not.
I was wasted and I was a total jerk.
And I just I want to say I'm real sorry for how I acted.
Thanks.
Is Joey around? I'd like to apologize to her too.
She left this morning.
Oh.
Okay.
Well, um, when you talk to her, tell her I said sorry? Sure.
[SIGHS.]
Hey.
- Hey.
- Can I get a coffee? Yeah, of course you can.
So, Joey left, huh? She had some stuff she had to do at home.
She told me to tell you she wasn't being herself last night.
Oh, hey.
No explanation necessary.
Thank you.
I didn't realize how much I missed her.
I even miss fighting with her.
I don't know.
You two seem to fight pretty well on the phone.
- You know what you need? - Hm? - One of these.
- Hm! I I picked the raspberries myself.
- Oh, you did? - Mm-hm.
Wow.
How are you guys doing? Blood brothers sometimes spill a little blood.
- Sure.
- I don't know.
I'm startin' to wonder if my lookin' out for him is doing any good.
[SIGHS.]
Maybe I'm part of the problem.
Turning your back on the ones you love is hard.
Yeah, he doesn't have anyone else to lean on.
Well, he's lucky he has you.
- [SIGHS.]
I gotta go.
- What's goin' on? - My grandma needs my help.
- What happened? I I don't know.
She called and said she wasn't feeling so good, and she needed me to go to the house.
She she has diabetes.
I I called Doc, but he's out of town.
It's okay.
I'll go I'll go take a look at her.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
I just need your address.
- No, I'll take you.
- No, I can go myself.
It's fine.
But the house is it's hard to find.
Ricky, you're too upset to drive.
Why don't I take her? You just stay here and man the fort with Brady, yeah? - Yeah.
Okay.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
All right.
- Don't worry.
- I'll take good care of her.
- Okay.
- It's okay.
- Okay, thanks.
Thank you.
Please tell me how she is.
- I'll I'll give you a call.
- Okay.
[PAIGE.]
Take care.
[HOPE.]
Morning, Paige.
Morning.
Usual? I didn't see Doc come by today.
Uh, impromptu fishing trip.
I don't know why he goes.
He never catches anything bigger than a goldfish.
He probably enjoys the solitude.
Oh, not that he prefers being alone to your company.
That's not what I meant.
You know, I don't really know him.
Good Lord, you can a dig a hole faster than a gopher in springtime.
Morning, ladies.
Did I see Doc heading out of town? Fishing.
You know, I saw him dancing mighty close to Muriel St.
Claire at the Mingle - Which was lovely, by the way.
- Yeah.
- The Mingle was beautiful.
- Thanks.
Joy said she saw them dancing cheek to cheek.
Dollars to doughnuts, that woman has her sights set on becoming the next Mrs.
Mullins.
Oh, speaking of doughnuts, could I have a dozen, please? Assorted.
You pick.
That's an awful lot of doughnuts.
Well, um we have a full house to feed.
Well, folks who were in town for the Mingle have already cleared out.
I thought Mel was your only guest at the moment.
And her sister.
I saw Joey leave this morning.
If you don't need them, - I can put them back in the case.
- No, no, no.
I mean [CHUCKLES.]
they're already packed up.
You know, I I think it's getting late.
I'd better be running along.
- Thank you.
- What about your change? Oh, no, no, no, no.
You keep it.
[CHUCKLES.]
Jo Ellen turning down change.
That woman is up to something.
- Preacher.
- Hope.
Good work last night.
The food was perfectly edible.
I'll take that as high praise.
That's your prerogative.
Thank you.
Uh I will take the assortment of, uh the usual stuff.
- You know, for the bar.
- Okay, but you know, Jack came by and picked your order up already this morning.
Yeah.
Um well You know, listen, Paige.
I, uh Truth is, I wanted to talk to you about, you know, last night.
[SIGHS.]
Did I do or, you know, say something to make you uncomfortable? Hey, you know you know what? Um Never mind.
You know, forget I asked.
Preacher! Yeah.
What are the specials at the bar today? Um Spicy duck tacos.
With your delicious dry rub? Can you do me a favor and save me a couple? Yeah.
- Yeah, sure thing.
- Thanks.
Hey, what's goin' on with you? You barely said anything since we left the bar.
[SIGHS.]
I hate to admit it, but you might have been right.
Okay.
You're gonna have to be a little more specific.
About Charmaine.
What happened? I'm sorry.
You don't have to tell me.
It's it's really none of my business.
She said she wants a commitment.
What did you tell her? I didn't know what to say.
How did she take that? She won't return my calls.
[SIGHS.]
You know, at some point, you're gonna have to tell her how you really feel.
I just don't wanna hurt her.
Did you ever think that you're the one that doesn't wanna get hurt? We're here.
Well timed, Mr.
Sheridan.
Well timed.
We really need to get in there.
Yeah, copy that.
Come on.
Lydie! [BANGING ON WINDOW.]
Lydie, can you hear me? - There's no reception here.
- Yeah, I see that.
What are you supposed to do if there's an emergency? Improvise.
[GRUNTS.]
Lydie, can you hear me? [LYDIE.]
Oh, hey, Ricky Ricky [MUTTERS.]
- [JACK.]
Lydie.
- [MEL.]
Lydie.
Hey.
- [GROANING.]
- Hey.
Hey, Lydie.
It's Mel.
I work with Doc.
I'm a nurse practitioner.
Can you hear me? - Oh - Hey, there.
Hey, Lydie.
It's okay.
I'm here too.
- Jack.
- Yeah.
Jack.
What? Oh Why am I on the floor? What's goin' on? You might have just taken a little fall.
- It's okay.
- Oh, tha thank you.
Aah Okay.
- [GROANS.]
- Can you sit up? - Uh, yeah, sure.
- Okay.
- Okay.
There we go.
- [SIGHS.]
Yeah.
I need you to drink all of this.
- Okay? It's sugar water.
- Oh, okay.
It should help stabilize your blood sugar levels.
Ricky told me that you're a diabetic.
Where's Ricky? Well, he he's at the bar.
We told him we'd take care of you.
It's okay.
Okay.
You didn't have to come all the way out here, you know.
We wanted to come.
I wanted to make sure you're okay.
I'm fine.
I'm just a little light-headed, is all.
Yeah.
Um, how about we get you to the bed? Here, let me take that.
Wait a second.
- All right.
- Okay.
- Ready? - Can you stand up? - Yeah, yes.
Yeah.
- One, two three.
- [GROANS.]
- There you go.
Easy.
Okay.
I'm good.
I'm good.
Okay, okay.
- All right.
Take a seat.
- Mmph.
[SIGHS.]
- You're okay.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Tell you what.
You know what? I'm gonna go outside and take a look at your gate, and I'll leave you two ladies to talk, yeah? Okay.
Sure.
I I guess that would be all right.
You're in good hands.
Lydie, did you test your blood today? I can't stand it.
It makes me feel like a pin cushion.
- Have you been taking your medications? - I hate those shots.
Well, I think your blood sugar level dipped, which is why you blacked out.
Did Ricky put you up to this? He's always worrying about me, you know.
Lydie, it's really important for you to check your blood sugar and to take your insulin on a regular basis.
Where's your blood sugar monitor? - Ah, it's over there by by the bed.
- Okay.
I didn't mean for Ricky to bother anybody.
It's not a bother.
He just wants to make sure you're taking care of yourself.
You know, you look a little like my daughter, Elaine, Ricky's mother.
You know, she wanted to be a nurse.
Then she met Ricky's father, and I always knew he was trouble from the moment I laid eyes on him.
When Ricky was born, he stuck around for a few months, and then up and left.
Elaine was devastated.
They said that it was the drugs that killed her.
But I know that my baby died from a broken heart.
And then Ricky came to live with me, and it's been the two of us ever since.
Well, it sounds like you two are lucky to have each other.
He's all I have left.
[SIGHS.]
Okay, the gate's all fixed.
Oh, thank you, Jack.
All right, unfortunately, it's pin cushion time.
- Oh.
- I'm sorry.
[SIGHS.]
Are you ready? I think so.
Okay, one, two, three.
- [GROANS.]
- Sorry.
Uh, you know, my husband, Herb, he was the exact opposite of Ricky's dad.
[CHUCKLES.]
He was strong and dependable.
Not a day goes by I don't miss him.
[SIGHS.]
It's been ten years since he's been gone, and and it feels like yesterday.
[SNIFFLES.]
Did Herb help you manage your diabetes? Oh, he was insufferable.
He, uh kept pestering me to move around.
Stop eating this or that.
[BOTH CHUCKLE.]
Okay, well, Lydie, your blood sugar level is still really low.
So, I'd like to get you checked out at the hospital.
Jack can call Ricky, and I'll call Grace Valley and let them know that we're coming.
I don't wanna go to the hospital.
I know, but you need to be monitored.
Hey, Lydie, you know Would it make you feel better if I had Ricky come meet us there? Do you think going to the hospital is necessary? Well, I think that Herb would want you to take care of yourself, and I know that it will make Ricky feel better too.
He's the only reason I keep going.
I miss my Herb so much.
- Yeah.
- [SNIFFLES.]
- It's okay.
- [SOBS.]
I'm sorry.
- It's okay.
- I'm sorry.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- Anybody else? - [LAUGHS.]
- Oh, yes, I'd love a top-up.
- Here.
- Thank you, Muriel.
- Oh, you're welcome.
- Uh-oh.
- Well lucky for you all, I'm in the mood for a doughnut.
- Hm - Lilly you're looking well.
Thank you.
I'm feeling a little better every day.
Glad to hear it.
Baby Chloe needs her mama.
And you know what I need? Something glazed.
Ooh! It's been months since we gals have gotten together.
Oh.
Don't just sit there.
Deal me in.
- Oh, um - Sorry, honey.
Uh, we've already got a full house.
I saw an empty chair.
- What are we playing? - [CONNIE.]
Canasta.
I prefer seven-card stud, but canasta it is.
Hope, the truth is, we [SIGHS.]
Well? Spit it out.
We don't wanna play with you.
You don't want me to play cards with you? No.
Well, isn't that something? You're very competitive.
- Hm.
- So, you don't care about winning? Because last time we played, you cleaned house.
- It's nothing personal.
- No.
We're just looking to have a friendly game.
I always maintain strict decorum during leisure activities.
Honey, you're like a tornado in a glass factory.
And your outbursts are very upsetting.
You've always been too sensitive.
- Do you think I'm too sensitive? - Fine.
I I won't yell.
And you promise not to badger me if I keep winning? Consider this a badger-free zone.
Come on, ladies.
Let's give her a chance.
- [SIGHS.]
- Finally! You were always my favorite.
Hey, shift's not over for another hour.
I'm gonna bounce.
I'm not feelin' so good.
Did you clean out the grease trap? Yeah.
That's probably what made me feel sick.
Thing's disgusting.
Yeah, well, you look like you might be more hung over than sick.
I don't remember asking you.
Why are you really here, Brady? Work, just like you.
[LAUGHS.]
Oh, no.
No, you and I, we are we are nothin' alike.
Man, you're never gonna change, are you? Still think we're back in Mosul.
Hoo-rah! [LAUGHS.]
I'm tryin', Preach.
- Just give me a break, all right? - Hey.
You stole money out of the safe.
You steal tips from the wait staff.
I think I've cut you enough breaks.
You know, you're lucky this is Jack's place.
Anybody else would have kicked your ass to the curb.
That's what it is, isn't it? You can't handle that Jack and I are tight.
Huh! You're not a friend.
You're a leech.
And for once, why can't you just do the right thing, man? [CHUCKLES.]
And what's that, Preach? Leave town.
You know, just get out of here.
- Go.
- I'm gone.
Hey, Preacher.
Hey.
Little man.
- Hi.
- Hello.
- Our car died.
- Oh.
Yeah.
Um, I parked it out back to make a delivery across the street.
When I got back, the car wouldn't start.
I left the door open, drained the battery.
Do you think you could give us a jump? - [SIGHS.]
- Oh, you know what? Never mind.
- You're busy.
- No, no, it's okay.
Uh, why don't you two grab a seat? Hm? Get something warm to drink.
How about some hot cocoa? - Extra marshmallows? - As many as you can handle.
[CHUCKLING.]
- Thank you, Preacher.
- Okay.
[SIRENS WAILING.]
Well, they're gonna keep Lydie overnight, but Ricky's gonna stay with her.
- Good.
- Yeah.
I'll come back and check on them tomorrow.
Okay.
Sounds good.
[MARK.]
You ready? Mel? - Mel.
- What don't you understand? - I need to be in that room! - I'm sorry, but you're not allowed.
I'm gonna be doing his follow-up care, okay? I'm I'm sorry.
[SOBBING.]
I know you're just doing your job.
But what would you do if you were me? That's my husband.
[SOBS.]
[JACK.]
Mel.
- What? - Are you ready? Ready.
- To go back home.
- I'm sorry.
I I have to sit down.
Let me get you a water.
You feeling any better? You wanna talk about it? I can't.
It's okay.
- Hey, it's okay.
- [SOBBING.]
- I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
- No, it's okay.
Hey, it's okay.
[SIGHS.]
[JO ELLEN.]
Ah, okay [CONNIE.]
Ahem.
- I'm gonna take, uh - [SIGHS.]
God, I can't give her that.
Oh.
Canasta.
I'm out.
- You have got to be kidding me.
- [ALL GASP.]
- Now, Hope - Don't you "now Hope" me.
That's three hands in a row we were up, and you came back to beat us.
That's just the way the game goes.
If you're cheating! Don't be ridiculous.
Lilly knew you were collecting kings, and she served one up on a silver platter.
Coincidence? I think not.
I I I was holding onto fours.
Well, I I demand a rematch.
This is exactly why we didn't invite you.
I guess I'll save you the trouble of asking me to leave.
Ladies enjoy your afternoon.
Hope We Lydie said her husband's been dead for ten years.
She still misses him every day.
Well, there's something beautiful about that.
Or very, very sad.
Well, maybe a bit of both.
My dad used to say that the price of love was loss.
There's probably some truth to that, but I'd say most people would also say that love is worth the risk, don't you think? Honestly, I I don't I don't know anymore.
How about a little detour? Well, as long as it doesn't involve hiking or baseball.
Hah! Okay.
I had 16 marshmallows.
Wow.
That is a new Jack's Bar record, hm? I, uh I left the car running.
You'll need to drive it around for, you know, 20 minutes or so to charge the battery.
Oh, okay.
Thank you.
You're a lifesaver.
So, you goin' on a trip? Nope.
I mean, I could use a vacation.
[CHUCKLES.]
- Why do you ask? - Oh, it's just, I, uh you know, saw luggage in the back.
Oh.
No, no, I'm just, um donating some old clothes, and it's easier to get it to the Goodwill in Clear River.
Uh-huh.
Mm.
- Mom.
- Okay, okay.
- Come on.
- Okay, uh, you guys should get goin'.
Yeah.
Uh Thank you.
I owe you.
[GAME BLEEPING.]
Holy cow.
- What are you, a pinball wizard? - [LAUGHS.]
Yeah, well, I, uh I used to hang out at this bar when I was in college, and they had a machine just like this.
- I wasted a lot of time there.
- Well, I wouldn't say wasted.
If the whole nursing thing doesn't work out, you could always play professionally.
No, that's not a thing.
Oh, it's not a thing? - It's not a thing.
- Really? - No.
- Okay.
Uh Let's see.
The purpose of the PAPA circuit is to raise awareness of competitive pinball.
[GAME PLAYS LAUGHTER.]
- Oh, I'm sorry.
Did I just - Oh, come on.
- Was that distracting? - You made me lose my concentration.
- That's not fair.
- Oh, come on.
Don't hate the player.
[SIGHS.]
- Oh, I think this game is rigged.
- [GAME PLAYS LAUGHTER.]
Uh Okay, what? - What? - You distracted me.
- You happy now? - I didn't distract nothing.
I What I'm hungry.
We should get some food.
- What, are you buying? - Well, you drove, so, yeah.
[LAUGHS.]
Come on.
[MEL LAUGHS.]
Stop.
[CICADAS CHIRPING.]
You didn't have to walk me to my door.
Oh, if you knew how I was raised, you'd understand.
Right.
Well, thanks for the ride.
Oh, any time.
And for cheering me up.
I think we can give pinball most of the credit for that.
Mm! [SIGHS.]
You know, I don't think I'd still be here if it wasn't for you.
Well, I don't think that's true.
I do.
Good night.
Night.
[DOOR CLOSES.]
Mm, mm Mm-mm-mm-mm You've reached the voice mail of Dr.
Vernon Mullins.
If this is an emergency, please hang up and dial 911 immediately.
Vernon, it's me.
Just making sure you didn't fall out of the boat and drown.
The fading light - Is all that shines - Anyway - Good night.
- It'll be dark soon Been here before When love is warm If you win, you lose I told you Everything's fine Mm, mm Mm-mm-mm-mm Hey.
What are you doing here? Well, you wouldn't return my calls, so It's funny.
All I have to do is ignore you for a little while and then here you are, chasing after me for a change.
We need to talk.
I'm listening.
You said last night at the Mingle that you loved me and that you needed to know how I felt about you.
Yeah.
Look, I love being with you, uh We have a good time.
And? I don't know what you want me to say.
I Jack, I want you to say that you feel the same way about me, that that you're committed in this relationship.
Look, Char, I I care about you, deeply but I I can't do that.
Why not? I don't know.
Really? You sure Mel doesn't have anything to do with this? This is about you and me.
Huh.
Yeah.
I I don't know if I believe that.
I'm being straight with you.
Well, I don't think you're being honest with yourself.
I don't know what you want me to do.
I don't know.
I'm not gonna wait around for you to fall in love with me.
I wouldn't expect you to.
You should go.
[SIGHS.]
I didn't mean to hurt you.
You didn't.
You just wasted my time.
I'm sorry.
I hope you find what you're lookin' for.
I will.
Nothin's all right Nothin's all right Nothin's all right I I'll be all right I [SIGHS.]
I'll be all right Everything's fine [PHONE BUZZES.]
Hey, what took you so long? Oh, we were on the tarmac for four hours.
The delay was longer than the damn flight.
Ugh.
I'm sorry.
- Did Bill pick you up from the airport? - No.
I didn't want him to drag the kids out so late.
Is he there now? He's packing a few things.
I had to get out of there.
Oh, Joey.
[SIGHS.]
[SIGHS.]
It's a long time coming.
Well, that doesn't make it any easier to accept.
What other choice do I have? [KNOCKING AT DOOR.]
Uh, hold on a sec.
Oh, hi.
I know how you like my homemade orange pekoe.
I'll get the tray later.
- Okay.
Thank you.
- Stay warm.
Oh, that was so sweet.
That was Jo Ellen.
She brought me some tea.
Well, go enjoy your tea, okay? I I gotta get home.
- I'm exhausted.
- Okay.
- I'll call you in the morning.
Okay? - Are you sure? Yeah, I'm sure.
All right.
I love you.
I love you too, squirt.
