Virgin River (2019) s02e03 Episode Script

The Morning After

You took all the lonely days ♪
And you made them sing ♪
You turned off the alarms ♪
So they don't ring ♪
I don't know where we are ♪
In the grand scheme of things ♪
Let's get in this car ♪
Let's face the sky and go ♪
I just wanna be ♪
Counting stars with you ♪
I'm so sorry.
For what?
For this. I shouldn't have
let things get this far.
It's okay.
You weren't ready.
I wasn't.
I'll wait.
You know, once the baby's born,
your life
is gonna change more
than you can ever imagine.
I'm never gonna change
how I feel about you.
You don't know how you're gonna feel
when you and Charmaine become parents.
Raising a baby together
can create a bond that's completely
unexpected. You can't
No matter what happens,
I'm not gonna stop
wanting you.
I'm in love with you.
I'm sorry. I'm not ready.
You'll get there.
Can we try to be friends?
- I'll do my best.
Thank you.
Being that I'm just a friend,
I should maybe put my pants on.
- [DOC] You finished?
- [JACK] Almost.
What the hell is that?
It's a keyless deadbolt lock.
- Oh, so now a key isn't good enough.
All you have to do is enter a
security code on the keypad
to unlock it, and then
once you're inside,
it will automatically
lock the door behind you.
Oh, good grief.
This is not the Pentagon.
You're just giving me one more
thing I have to remember now.
Come on. Pick something
easy like your birthday
or the day you got married.
Well, neither of those
events were easy. [LAUGHS]
So, any word from the sheriff?
They put out an APB,
but the description they
got was pretty vague.
Well, I really think it's
one of Calvin's guys.
We don't know that yet, and
we don't want to start a war.
Well, sometimes, to keep the peace,
you gotta go on the offensive.
[PREACHER] Here you go.
Egg sandwich, extra cheese.
Hey, Preach. You didn't
have to bring this over.
Hey, don't worry about it.
Well, thank you, very kind of you.
Oh, since you're here, I found
this under the door this morning.
Something wrong?
No, it's the, uh keys
to the bakery truck.
Paige asked me to watch
over it while she's gone.
Well, do you have any idea
how long she'll be away.
Her dad's sick, right?
Well, when you speak to her, just
let her know we're thinking of her.
- Sure thing.
- Mm.
Oh, and hey, did she ever tell
you why she changed her name?
You know, I decided it
was none of my business.
- Good morning.
- [HOPE] Hi.
Wow, these are such beautiful flowers.
What are these?
Uh, honeysuckle and rosemary.
Oh, they smell amazing.
You seem awfully perky.
- What gives?
- Nothing. Nothing.
I'm just, um, here to
check on Charmaine.
I wouldn't think that'd be something
you'd be looking forward to.
I care about all my patients.
Nope, something's different about you.
I bet my life on it.
Oh, really? You bet your life on it?
Well, I bet my Eden
climbing roses on it.
I'm a nurse. You know,
helping people is my job.
Mm-hmm. For the record, there's
something you're not telling me.
- Wow.
- [DOC] Ladies, morning.
- Hi.
- Morning.
Uh, I was just about to go inside.
Oh, uh, I'll join you in just a minute.
So, what was so urgent it
couldn't wait until tonight?
How was your date with Muriel?
That question is nowhere near urgent.
I never said urgent. I said I needed
to speak to you, and I do.
- So, how was it, the date?
- It was nice.
Good. So, when are you seeing her again?
No, Hope. I am not going on
a second date with Muriel
because you don't want people
to know our business.
One more date won't hurt you,
and it'll buy us a little time.
Just make sure, next time,
you guys go someplace public
like a restaurant or the park.
That way, it'll be harder
for her to seduce you.
Good morning.
[MEL] Hey.
How are you feeling?
Uh, well, I've only vomited
once in the last few hours.
She's still dehydrated.
Yeah, we need to get
more fluids into you.
- I can't keep anything down.
- [DOC] I know.
[CHARMAINE] What is that?
- [DOC] Oh, it's just an IV.
- Whoa. No. No.
No, no. You won't feel
a thing. I promise you.
No, I'm not gonna feel a thing
because you're not coming
near me with that needle.
Um, Charmaine, just try to stay calm.
No, no. If either of you try
and stab me with that thing,
I swear, I'm gonna vomit.
Oh, trypanophobia.
- Yeah.
- What?
Extreme fear of needles.
Yeah. Okay. Well, that's
what I've got, then.
Okay. I will call the hospital,
and I'll just tell 'em
we're coming over.
No, no, I'm not going to the hospital.
Look, they can put you under anesthesia.
That way, they can insert the IV,
- all while monitoring you and the baby.
- Oh, I just want to go home.
I just want to go home.
Charmaine, honey, it's either
the needle or the hospital.
You know, we could try, uh,
some aromatherapy meditation,
maybe some reflexology.
I I have a client who
swears by meditation.
You need an IV, not a
bunch of mumbo jumbo.
Um, the use of holistic
therapy is pretty common,
and I've used it on all of
my patients back in LA.
Why don't you just let me try it?
Okay. Okay.
- Mel.
- Yeah.
If you can't get an IV
into her arm by tonight
She has to go to the hospital.
I know, just give me the day.
- Yeah, clock's ticking.
- Okay.
I'm gonna go grab my kit from the cabin.
- Okay? I'll be back.
- Okay.
Well, hey, friend.
[LAUGHS] Oh, okay.
You know, if I didn't know any better,
I'd say you were following me.
- Really?
- Mm.
Hmm. Because, actually,
I think I got here first.
- Touché.
- Mm-hmm.
Thank you.
[JACK] Drive safe.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Sorry, I can't stay too long.
Well, who could blame you?
I'm so miserable, I wouldn't
wanna be around me either.
Oh, come on.
Look, you know that's not how I feel.
- What can I do?
There is one thing that you
could do that would help me.
Yeah. Name it.
Spend the night with me.
Not not like that. Just
I'm lonely, and it's worse at night,
not to mention this house
gives me the creeps.
Hope's here.
- You can sleep on the couch.
- I just don't think it's a good idea.
I don't have any family here.
You're the only person I can ask.
Jack, you you keep saying
that you're here for me,
but this is what I need.
Look, I'll think about it.
My Lord, woman, you look
like you were born tired.
- Tourists giving you a hard time?
I wish. It's my niece, Lizzie.
She arrived yesterday, a day early.
We were up all night
arguing about her curfew
and the length of her dress.
You don't argue with children,
pets, or husbands.
You tell them what to do.
Big talk coming from the woman
who's getting divorced.
How about I take her off your
hands for the afternoon?
- Show her around.
- She won't want to do that.
Hey, remember, don't ask.
You tell her.
All right, but don't
say I didn't warn you.
And I'll try not to say I told you so
when I have her eating out
of the palm of my hand.
Hope, Lizzie. Lizzie, Hope.
Hope has graciously offered to
give you a tour of the town.
Hard pass. [LAUGHS]
[CONNIE] Ah, ah, ah.
You're with Hope.
Have a wonderful time.
What are we doing here?
How soon can you get this
place up and running?
- Is this a joke?
- I want you to run this place.
- I don't know anything about logging, man.
Well, you don't have to.
Really, I just want you to be a liaison
between Virgin River and the loggers.
What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Anyone from town has any
questions, they come to you.
Why would they have any questions?
Well, let's just say our business
might tend to exhibit
a few unorthodox
Like what?
We operate around the clock.
Might seem unusual for
a logging company.
- See, I don't get the
- Discussion's over.
How much you paying me?
A lot more than you were
making bussing tables.
A whole lot more.
Now breathe in.
One, two,
and breathe out.
Now, try to focus on the
scent of the lavender,
and imagine you're someplace peaceful.
So when did you and Jack make up?
Um, I don't know what
you're talking about.
Because, I mean, yesterday,
he could barely even look at you,
and today, you guys are out
flirting in the driveway.
We weren't flirting.
Oh, come on.
I know it when I see it.
Well, Jack and I are just
friends, nothing more.
Okay, but
if you and Jack are seeing each other,
I would like to know.
You know Jack cares about
your well-being, and so do I.
Why don't you try to take
a couple sips of water
I know Jack cares about me.
He does.
Yeah. He
He's always asking me
what he can do for me.
- That's sweet.
- Yeah.
He's even gonna start
spending the night here.
Yeah, so I'm not alone.
You know, I am kind of
feeling a little bit better.
Do you do you think you
can get me some lemonade?
Yeah, I think Hope has some.
Actually, from the bar.
Preacher does this thing
where he combines oranges
and lemons and limes and
Yeah, sounds good.
Four, please?
Oh, and Mel, Jack's not gonna be there.
He's running errands
for me in Clear River.
Wow, Brady, so this is the new job, huh?
Man, when you fall, you fall hard.
[CALVIN] What brings you
to our neck of the woods?
Just some guy looking for oxy
attacked our nurse at knifepoint.
You might remember Mel.
She's the one who saved
your life last month.
Sure. I remember her.
She's not bad looking either,
isn't that right, Brady?
Sweet gal like that with a knife
to her. That is a shame.
Opioids truly are a
blight on our society.
See, I find it really hard to believe
that there's a random drug addict
roaming around Virgin River.
- What are you trying to say, Jack?
- I'm saying he's one of yours.
I don't believe in mixing
business with pleasure.
All my guys are clean.
I promise you that.
If it's all the same to you,
I think I'll take a look around.
Sorry, no tours today, my friend.
- Jimmy!
- Yeah?
[CALVIN] Wanna help Jack
back to his vehicle?
Want a hand getting back to your truck?
Just go, Jack.
If I were you, I'd watch
my back around this crew.
Thanks for the concern,
but I can handle myself.
That remains to be seen.
Jack, next time you feel
like dropping by
Just keep your trash
out of Virgin River.
[CALVIN] I thought I told
you to get rid of Leo.
I thought I did.
I watched him pack his bag,
said he was heading south.
Perhaps Leo needs a
stronger message and a map.
Got it.
And this is our town
theater. It's small.
We mostly use it for council meetings
and occasionally hosting the
Eureka Community Theater Group.
Are you interested in acting?
I don't like people looking at me.
Well, what do you like?
I don't know.
Hanging out with my friends. Shopping.
In Clear River, which
is just one town over,
there are some very fashionable
stores right on Main Street.
What do you mean by fashionable?
There's a bedazzled denim
shop and a dress boutique
that specializes in embroidery.
Wow. Does that include poodle skirts?
[LAUGHS] I didn't say it was Milan.
How about a salad from Jack's Bar,
which is right around the corner?
I do like bars.
Thank you.
[JACK] Oh, let me help.
Oh, no, I got it.
- Hey.
- What?
I thought Charmaine said that
you were in Clear River today.
No, I was up at Calvin's.
I'm still looking for the
guy who attacked you.
You sure that's a good idea?
He's probably long gone by now.
Maybe, maybe not.
In my experience,
you don't stand up to a bully,
the bully takes over.
Jack, you can't protect everyone.
I'm a swing-for-the-fences kind of guy.
I know.
Well, I just want to say thanks.
Thanks for helping her out.
- I know she could be difficult, but
She's got a big heart.
Yeah, it's not a problem.
- Hey.
- Hey, have you met our newest resident?
Actually, I'm just visiting.
Uh, your Connie's niece Liz, right?
Lizzie. Sorry.
[LAUGHS] Wow, she seems sweet.
Connie's had a heck of a time
with her, but she's fine with me.
Maybe that's because you
have something in common.
What's that?
Hard on the outside, soft on the inside.
We're women, not a couple of cannolis.
Hey, Doc, just packing up your order.
- Hey.
- How's our patient?
Well, I was just getting
her some lemonade.
Are you moonlighting as a waitress?
No, I am just trying to
help our patient relax.
You've been up there all day.
I would've had her hooked
up to an IV by now.
Yeah? Well, you and I
have different styles.
Yeah, I don't let my
patients run all over me,
and neither did you until now.
That's not what's happening here.
If you can't stand up to her,
then you shouldn't be involved.
You're the one that was pushing
me to do this, remember?
I didn't want to be involved
in Charmaine's case.
You need to learn to compartmentalize.
Separate business and personal.
Well, I'm pretty sure that
this situation is unique.
Every situation is.
You have to learn how
to motivate your patient
to do what is in her own best interests.
In other words, lead, follow,
or get out of the way.
You're absolutely right.
Absolutely right. Thanks, Doc.
There you go.
Thank you, Preacher.
Thanks a lot.
Have a nice day.
Uh, hi, so, um, uh what can I, uh
Just so you know, we're
we're all out of pie pies.
- We're out of pies.
- Are you having a seizure?
No, I'm okay. Uh, I just
Okay, then can you grab me a beer?
Yeah, yeah, okay. I'll grab you a beer.
Uh, hey, Preacher. I need a beer.
For who?
What if she gets mad?
- Table four is ready to order.
- Okay, fine.
I heard Paige's father's sick.
Yeah, you know, it's a
It's a tough situation.
Well, when you speak to her,
please give her my best.
Will do.
Hey, Preach, I can't find the
invoice for the Miller account.
You know where it is?
Invoice for the Miller account.
Yeah yeah, I paid him.
You okay?
Yeah, you know, I'm just
trying to, uh, figure out
how to keep the bakery truck
going for Paige. [CHUCKLES]
We're barely keeping our
heads above water here.
Why don't you try Connie?
I think her family used to
own a bakery in Eureka.
She may be able to help.
Good to know.
Where are the lemonades?
- Oh, they're all over the driveway.
- It's all right.
I lost my craving anyway.
Why don't we try some reflexology?
No, I don't like people
touching my feet.
Well, it's not about what you like,
and we're running out of time, so
Are you always this pushy?
When it comes to the health
of my patients, yeah.
Well Jack hates pushy women, so
Why don't we start with some meditation?
Actually, I'm just
I'm gonna go take a nap.
- Okay.
Hey, Doc, it's me.
I'm gonna need you to be on standby
to take Charmaine to the hospital.
Would you like to order something else?
Preacher makes the best burger in town.
Isn't this the only
restaurant around here?
Just seeing if you
were paying attention.
So you know this place is lame.
For someone your age, maybe.
When you get older,
your priorities change.
What, you don't care about fun?
More like what you consider fun changes.
Like, for me,
I like to garden, watch my
shows, and be left alone.
That's because your
life's pretty much over.
You're just waiting for it to end.
I want to go to LA and party
my ass off while I still can.
First of all [CLEARS THROAT]
my life isn't almost
over, and second,
if you wanna survive on your own in LA,
Mel, who you just met, is from there.
She could probably give
you some guidance.
So, you think going back
to LA is a good idea?
Why wouldn't I?
Connie says LA's "the devil's
workshop," whatever that means.
You can get in trouble anywhere.
That's what I think.
I'm gonna let you in on a little secret.
When I was your age,
I got married because I thought
there was nothing else to do.
It was a huge mistake.
All things considered, there are
worse things than being bored.
If Preacher comes by, give him my card.
I'll be right back.
[MURIEL] I hope I'm not
interrupting anything.
No. No, not at all.
Please, come in. Come in.
You mentioned last night that
strawberries are your favorite fruit.
Yes, they are.
Oh, my God, strawberry shortcake?
My mother's recipe.
Oh, you shouldn't have
gone to all that trouble.
No, no, no, there's no trouble at all.
I love baking, and
especially for my friends.
Well, oh
- Forget the plate. [LAUGHS]
- Mm-hmm.
Mmm. Mmm.
That tastes like summer.
Well, the key is something
pastry chefs call gentle mixing.
It's what makes the shortcake so fluffy.
Well, whatever you did,
it's amazing. Thank you.
By the way, I, uh, I saw in the paper
that a string quartet is playing Vivaldi
in Clear River Thursday night.
- Vivaldi?
- Mm-hmm.
I thought you might be interested.
Maybe you wanna take Hope?
Oh, um, Hope, no, she
She's not a classical music fan.
Oh, I just can't understand how
anyone can not like classical music.
She thinks that it's for people
who are putting on airs.
Well, I guess everyone is
entitled to their own opinion.
I suppose. [CHUCKLES]
Well, I'm going to attend,
and if you're interested,
maybe we could go together?
[CHARMAINE] Can you come
back later? I'm exhausted.
[MEL] No.
I'm sorry, but we need
to get you hydrated,
and my way clearly is not working.
No, it's not.
No. So our only option is to call Doc
and have him drive you to the hospital.
I already told you,
I'm not going to the hospital.
Well, if you won't work with me,
that's gonna be your only choice.
I can't go to that hospital.
[SIGHING] Charmaine,
I have done all I can do.
Okay? This is between you and Doc now.
My mom died slowly and
horribly in that place,
and now the thought of going back there
even to have a baby, I just
It makes me sick.
Okay, I understand.
Yeah, nobody understands
how hard that was for me.
My mom died of cancer when I was 11.
Oh, God.
It was it was a really long time ago.
But, I still remember her
last day in the hospital,
and it was one of the
worst days of my life.
I'm I'm sorry.
I didn't know.
I know. It's okay.
[SIGHS] You know,
I'm genuinely trying to help you.
I know. I know.
[EXHALES] What about that foot thing?
- The reflexology?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- That.
Well, you'd have to
cooperate for it to work?
- Okay.
- Okay?
- Mm-hmm.
- Okay.
I lost something.
- What?
- I'd rather not say.
Okay. Good luck, then.
It's Lizzie!
- You lost a human being?
We were at the bar.
I went to the restroom, and
when I came out, she was gone.
Did you try Connie's?
Maybe Lizzie went home.
Connie would have called me to gloat.
She didn't think I could handle her.
Well, call the sheriff.
She's not in danger.
She's just insolent.
She couldn't have gone far.
- Come on. You gotta help me find her.
- You just hate being wrong
more than anything in
the world, don't you?
Are you gonna help me or not?
- What?
- If you find where the boys are,
it's likely you'll find the girl.
The high school baseball
team practices after school.
Vernon, you're a genius?
Hello, Hope. [CHUCKLES]
- I knew I'd find you here.
How's it going with Lizzie?
Uh, just great.
We've had a marvelous time
getting to know each other.
- Fine. I lost her.
I spent the last 45 minutes
scouring the town.
Hate to say it, but I told you so.
You know there's nothing you enjoy more.
She's been home an hour.
I found your credit card in her purse.
I can't believe she'd do that!
I can. Most days, it'd be easier
living with a honey badger.
What a disaster.
I'm never gonna live this down.
[MEL] You're doing a lot better.
Just try to let go, okay?
Okay. Just breathe in.
[MEL] Breathe out.
This is the last pressure point.
You know, a lot of people
don't realize that
reflexology releases endorphins,
but it also releases emotions.
If the situation was reversed, I
I wouldn't help you.
I mean, if I were you,
I wouldn't be helping me.
I think you would.
Ugh. Only a perfect
person would say that.
Charmaine, I am far from perfect.
I've been so horrible to you.
You know what?
You've been through a lot,
and I'm proud of you
for not giving up.
You're already putting your
baby's needs ahead of your own.
- You're gonna be a great mom.
Keep your eyes closed, okay?
There you go.
Is it in?
- It is.
You're gonna start to feel much,
much better really soon.
Thank you.
- It's all right.
Now, let's get you tucked in, okay?
There you go.
Try to relax, okay?
Hey, Jack.
Just spoke to my guy in
the drug enforcement unit
over at the Humboldt
County Sheriff's Office.
Good news is they've got
Calvin on their radar.
For his illegal grow?
That, and it looks like
he may be branching out.
Into what?
Not sure yet. They'll get back to me.
So listen, what can I do?
Just just keep an eye out.
Hopefully, I'll have more info
when I come up for the reunion.
Copy that.
- All right. I'll see you in a few days.
- All right, brother.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I just came over to see
how things were going.
Well, I, uh, got the IV
in, and now she's asleep.
- Come on.
- Yeah.
Look at you, the little miracle worker.
She hates needles.
Well, uh, I have something
else I wanna do for her.
So I'm gonna head over to Grace
Valley, and then I'll be back.
You've been working all day.
You've got to be exhausted.
Why don't I drive you?
And you probably haven't
even had a chance to eat.
We can pick something up on the way.
I think it's better if I go by myself.
It's gonna be dark by
the time you get back.
Oh, Jack. You don't
have to worry about me.
You sure there's nothing I
can do to change your mind?
I'm sure.
- Brady.
- Preach. So how are things at the bar?
Smooth, steady,
You know, pretty much
everything you're not.
Aw. Miss you too, big guy.
- Do not touch me.
- Easy, all right?
- Just trying to put the past behind us.
- Right.
Right. Isn't that your MO?
Just to, uh, move on, never take
responsibility for anything,
no matter who you hurt?
Well, we can't all be
a choirboy, Preach.
You mean a decent human being?
[BRADY] I'll save this
debate for the reunion.
What's that?
Yeah, Tom, he, uh He was
talking about hitting the trails,
kayaking, the whole nine.
Relax, I got better things to do
than sit around with a bunch
of guys swapping war stories.
Like, uh, buying a new car.
Speaking of which, you look
like you can use a new ride.
Maybe you should, uh, talk
to your boss about a raise.
You know, Brady, for a little man,
you sure got a big mouth.
What are you so riled up about?
No, I just, uh I just ran into Brady.
Oh, he's one bad penny.
[LAUGHS] Yeah, that's a
nice way of putting it.
So, what do you think?
About the bakery truck.
I don't know. I got a lot on
my plate at the moment.
I know, but you would be
doing me a huge favor
if you could just keep things running
while, you know, Paige is gone.
How long would that be?
That, I'm not sure.
You said it's her father who's sick?
I thought he'd passed away.
No, no, he, um
he abandoned the family
when she was young,
and, well, he showed up ten years ago.
Oh, well, that's very
forgiving of her to go out
and take care of him now.
I mean, that's that's Paige.
Is that why Wes was here?
You know, I had no idea she was married.
Did you?
Connie, did you, uh
tell anyone about Wes?
Mmm. Actually, no.
Ever since I agreed to take Lizzie in,
she's been all that I can handle.
Well, I need to ask you another favor.
Never mention Wes again
to anyone.
Finally, I get to talk to you
and not your voice mail.
[MEL] I'm sorry.
Things have been kind of
crazy since I got here.
Crazy good or crazy bad?
I, uh, I slept with Jack.
Whoa. Um, that's not what I
thought you were gonna say.
Yeah, I know. I still can't
believe it happened. It's
How was it?
Unfortunately, it was phenomenal.
So, does that mean you
guys are together now?
I don't know.
He wants to be but,
you know, with the baby coming
and everything it's just so
- Messed up?
- Yeah.
You said he's not in love with
Charmaine though, right?
Well, yeah, that's what he says,
but once he becomes a father,
