Virgin River (2019) s02e06 Episode Script

Out of the Past

Hey, if you don't tell me who
it is, I'm calling the sheriff.
Mel, it's me.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you.
I couldn't get the key to work.
That's okay.
It's just the last time I had an
unexpected visitor, you know,
there was a knife involved.
No knife. Just here to
borrow Doc's dry bag.
What you doing working on a Sunday?
Uh, I'm creating digital files
for all of our patients.
Really? And Doc's okay with that?
Last I heard, he thought computers
were the demise of civilization.
Well, if he could keep
track of his paper files,
then maybe he'd have a leg
to stand on, but he doesn't.
Oh, save me a seat for
that discussion, will ya?
Did you sort everything out with Stacie?
I wouldn't give her the ring, so
she got upset and left last night.
Well, good for you. At least you
don't have to see her for a while.
Yeah, well, I wasn't invited
to the family memorial, so
Oh, tomorrow it'll be a year
since Mark passed away.
How you feeling?
Um I'm okay.
Yeah, I just need to get through
the next couple days, you know,
and I still haven't figured out
what I wanna do for him.
I just don't want to sit
around being sad all day.
You know, I wanna do
something in his memory
that helps me move forward, and
Sure, yeah.
I'm sure you can find a way to reflect
without getting overwhelmed.
Can I ask you something?
Yeah, sure.
How come you never talk about Iraq?
Well, I was mostly in Afghanistan, so
I mean
I would think seeing your military
buddies would bring up some stuff.
Yeah, you'd think.
Anyway, I'll let you get back to work.
You didn't answer my question.
What was the question?
Is seeing them hard?
Yeah, of course. But, you know,
nothing I can't handle.
Tell Doc I said thanks for the dry bag.
Charmaine's little beast
destroyed my favorite boots!
And peed on my dining room rug,
which I discovered in my bare feet.
Well, they say dogs are
excellent judges of character.
I'm not amused. I want my house back!
Well, just keep your socks on, sweetie.
Charmaine should be
able to go home soon.
I need you to be more specific.
- Well, I
- Hello, Doc!
- Hope, surprised to see you standing.
- And why would that be?
I was afraid you might've strained
something at the dance class.
I know you're not used to exercising.
- The only thing straining
- No, would you
Muriel! Your beef stroganoff
is ready. I'll get it for you.
- Oh, thank you.
- Oh, yeah, beef stroganoff, that's
Oh, what a great choice.
Mmm. You bet, yeah.
It's for my Sunday funday.
- Sunday, what day?
- Funday.
It's just an afternoon of wine
and games at my house, and
you know, you should stop by.
Okay, here you go.
It's, uh, it's a little heavy.
- I'll take it to the car for you.
- You know what? Let me do that.
Oh, my gosh, what a
gentleman. Both of you.
Good luck lifting the beef
stroganoff out of your car.
Seems like Doc's available.
Muriel, there's, uh, something
I need to talk to you about.
You know, I, uh, really enjoyed
our time together.
Oh, well, I'm so glad to hear that.
You know, I still can't get over
just how much you and I have in common.
Yes, well, you know,
we do have a lot of shared
interests for sure.
We do.
And truthfully, I still have no idea
how you and Hope ever got together.
The two of you are polar opposites.
Well, sometimes being different
is what brings people together.
But I also believe that attraction
happens more easily
between like-minded people.
But history is also a factor.
And I happen to think that
our story is just beginning.
Hope and I,
we have decided to reconcile.
I am so sorry. I didn't
know how else to tell you.
There's no need for you
to be sorry. I, um
Thank you for being honest and upfront.
And I I just hope
we can remain friends.
I'm sure we can manage that.
And, um, if anything ever changes,
then you be sure to let me know.
How long does it take
to put a pot of beef stroganoff
into someone's car?
I, uh
I told Muriel that you and I were
getting back together again.
- You didn't have to do that.
- Yes, I did.
She's an innocent bystander.
It was hard enough just to
tell her today. I mean,
you should've seen the look on her face.
She's not as doe-eyed as you think.
She's a good person.
I feel sick that I was complicit
in this charade of yours.
Let's go, ladies! Ha-ha!
Alrighty, get your asses up!
What the hell time is it?
Come on. It's time to go boating
and drink some "bootie" beer.
I am hung way the hell over.
My back is killing me.
Jack, we were thinking of hitting
the road sooner rather than later.
What are you talking about?
We gotta go kayaking.
Uh, I got a ton of work
down at the station.
Yeah, my daughter has
a swim meet to go to.
Hey, we can all grab breakfast
together at the bar.
You sound like a bunch
of middle-aged men.
That's because we are.
Okay, but you don't have
to act like it, do you?
Okay, what did we come here for, boys?
Did we come here for us?
'Cause I thought that was
the plan, okay? I get it.
You all got lives to get back
to, and I respect that,
but did we not come here to
improvise, adapt, and
So suck it up, suit up,
and let's go, boys!
Kick your asses up and down that river!
Ricky, I'll be back in a few hours,
so George is on his way over
to keep an eye on things.
Great, so Jack told you.
About stealing the liquor? Yeah.
It's just
Jack's never been mad at me before.
Well, I think he's just more,
you know, disappointed than mad.
Great, now I really feel like garbage.
All right, look.
Jack has given you a
lot of responsibilities.
He's counting on you to fill
his shoes when he's not here.
Yeah, I know I screwed up.
Just sometimes, I feel like
I never got to be a kid.
I understand.
As long as it's, you
know, a one-time deal.
I mean, you should feel good
that he's treating you like a man.
But trust me, you'll be stronger
for it in the long run.
Don't worry about Jack.
He'll come around.
Come in.
That mongrel had another accident.
I know he's doing it on purpose.
I'm sure that's not true.
That's what he wants you to believe.
Fair warning, Tucker. You're on my list.
Mouthy! Just like your mother.
Oh, Charmaine's in the
shower, by the way.
She'll be down as soon as
she uses up all the hot water.
Someone pee on your floor?
Not that I know of.
What's wrong with you, then?
This isn't snooping!
It's a conversation.
Oh. What's the difference?
If you don't wanna talk, I'll back off.
I don't wanna talk.
It might help.
No, it's just
Tomorrow, it'll be a year
since Mark passed away,
and I don't know how
I want to spend it
- so
- Well
There's no right or wrong way
to get through one of
those anniversaries.
Right, I mean, but that's the thing.
It feels wrong even calling
it an anniversary.
You know, I mean, our
anniversaries were always
about celebrating, and tomorrow's
It's about your loss.
I mean, how is someone supposed
to mark the worst day of their life?
You know you don't have to do anything.
After my second husband, Evan, died,
I completely ignored everything
that would stir things up:
birthdays, anniversaries, holidays.
Did that work? I mean, bottling
up your feelings like that?
Worked for me.
You know, I know everyone, you know,
has a different way of grieving,
but everything that I've read
says that in order to heal,
you have to face your emotions.
That's why I stick to
gardening magazines.
- Ladies.
- Hi, Vernon.
I think I'll put on some tea.
Have you seen Charmaine?
Uh, she's just getting out of the
shower. It'll be a few minutes.
Her exam was supposed
to be ten minutes ago.
What do you want me to say?
I heard from Connie
I know. She's upset
because I gave Lizzie
a prescription for the pill.
Oh, upset is putting it mildly.
- What did you say?
- I told her that you
were doing your job.
Yeah, just give her
another prescription,
and I'll deal with Connie.
Well, I offered, but Lizzie refused.
My guess is she needs
Connie to drive her
to the pharmacy in Clear River.
Yeah. Connie doesn't wanna enable her
by helping fill the prescription.
There nothing we can do?
Well, I just happen to keep
birth control samples on hand,
along with other drugs for patients
who can't afford prescriptions
You can use those.
They're locked in the file
cabinet in my office.
- Really?
- Lizzie is an adult.
Connie has no legal right to
interfere with her medical care.
That's right. Wow! I'm sorry. I just
I wasn't expecting you
to be on my side on this.
In medicine, there are no sides to take.
There are only patients to treat.
I just.. I have to dry my hair.
I'll be 20 minutes, tops.
And there are times that I
wish I became a veterinarian.
I was just napping.
If I sleep during the day,
I can't sleep at night.
Jesus, even your internal
clock follows the rules.
So, what are you up to today?
Uh, working on a history test, then
I have a second shift at the bar.
My dad sent me some cash.
Wow, that must be nice.
Nah, it's guilt money.
It was his idea to send me here.
Better than nothing though.
Anyway, I wanna go shopping.
You wanna come?
Yeah. Sure.
Let's go to Eureka. They have a Sephora.
Can't drive, I don't have a car.
You just drove us to that lame party.
It's my grandma's car.
We could take the bus.
Ew, living here is humiliating enough.
I'm not supposed to drive
the car outside of town.
I guess I'll have to go by myself.
I could always hitchhike.
Don't don't do that. I'll take you.
Pick me up at 1:00. I'll close early.
- You can do that?
- Who's gonna stop me?
Yeah, just, uh
Right there.
Bye now. Okay.
Come on, little girl.
Here we go, sweetheart.
- Oh!
- She's getting so big!
You saw her less than a week ago.
That's right.
What do you want?
I just need you to sign the
last page of your contract,
then we can officially close the deal
and get your check for your farm.
It's in the truck. I can
go get it if you want.
Who's Calvin?
He's a local businessman.
I heard he's a drug dealer.
Well, that's some
serious misinformation.
Look, I know Calvin owns Emerald Lumber,
the company that wants
to buy my property.
- Lilly, they've already bought it.
- Not so fast.
Jack says it's not a done deal
until I sign that contract.
We negotiated in good faith,
so we considered it sold.
If I had known who was behind this,
I would never have even
entertained that offer.
Lilly, look, if this is
about more money,
I'm sure I can get them
to sweeten the deal.
Not everything is about
money. Excuse me.
Well, your blood sugar looks good.
And, uh
we seem to have found the right formula
to keep the nausea from
the HG under control.
So, when can I go home?
Today, if you like.
But I do have some conditions.
Whatever you want.
You have to return
regularly for follow-ups.
Of course.
And I want you to set up
a birth plan with Mel.
And I know that Jack's
buddies are in town, so
when you finish packing, call me,
and I'll take you back to Clear River.
Thank you so much. Both of you.
- Just give me a sec.
- Sure.
Uh, so Doc asked me to do the birth plan
because I have more experience
with complicated pregnancies.
You don't need to explain.
I'm so thankful for everything
that you've done for me,
Jack, our babies.
It's unbelievable.
Finally getting everything
I ever wanted.
Well, I'm happy that
you're feeling better.
Can't wait to tell Jack
that I'm going home.
Well, we'll talk soon, yeah?
- Mm-hmm.
- Okay.
Ho-ly crap!
It's a bit of a pinball machine, huh?
- Where do we put in?
- That's not good.
Drop looks like a heavy
four, maybe a five.
Finally! Some damn excitement!
- All right, Preach, let's put in.
- I'm not doing this.
Nah, we should go downriver
where the current lightens up.
It's not good, Jack.
Come on. These guys wanna go.
You guys wanna go, right?
What? No one's gonna say it?
- Say what?
- Jack, it's not a big deal.
Let's just find another spot.
No, not before I hear
what Josh has to say.
Look, man, we just
we don't want to have to
pull you out of the river.
The hell does that mean?
It means It means you've
been drinking all night.
Yeah, we've all been drinking, right?
Yeah, but we quit at dinnertime.
How about you?
What, y'all agree with him?
Why don't we just go downriver
and find a good put-in?
No, no, no. Y'all wanted
to leave early, right?
So let's just call it, then.
- Come on, man!
- Yeah, man.
All right, guys. Let's go. Come on.
I brought you a pie.
Thank you.
It's for your party.
Strawberry cream cheese
with a graham cracker crust.
Sounds delicious. How thoughtful of you.
Is that it? Did did
you want to come in?
Oh, no.
I just wanted to say I'm sorry
for the way things ended
with you and Doc.
He's a decent man, and I know
he feels bad about all this.
So do I.
I appreciate you coming all the
way over here to tell me that
and for the record, no hard feelings.
Okay. Good. I'm glad
we cleared things up.
Enjoy your, uh, afternoon.
Oh, and Hope?
Your performance as Doc's
supportive ex-wife was flawless,
but unfortunately for you,
the show's not over.
Because when you screw
things up with Doc again,
and we both know you will,
I'll be there to pick up the pieces.
Hey, babe.
Happy anniversary.
I love you.
Oh, okay, I gotta run.
We got an MVA rolling in.
So, I will see you tonight.
You know, we can go out to dinner,
or we can stay in and have lots of sex.
I vote for the latter.
Love you.
Hey, babe.
Happy anniversary.
I love you.
Oh, okay, I gotta run.
We got an MVA rolling in.
So, I will see you tonight.
You know, we can go out to dinner,
or we can stay in and have lots of sex.
More coffee?
Oh, no. I gotta take off.
Yeah, I'm gonna need
help loading up, so
Hey, I got ya, Z.
- Yeah, cool.
- All right.
- We good?
- Yeah, we're good.
- Thanks.
- Sure.
Hey, man. I still need to know
what we can do about Calvin.
Not much at this point.
The evidence so far is circumstantial,
and we don't have enough for a warrant.
Come on. He's into something
new, something bad.
- I can feel it.
- Yeah, Jack.
Your hunches have saved
my life more than once,
but the DEU is gonna need more.
And what about the pot business?
Like a lot of illegal growers,
he claims to be moving
towards compliance,
so nobody's getting
prosecuted right now.
Yeah, I, uh, I wish I could do more,
but it's out of my jurisdiction.
Look, um, I'm gonna keep in
touch with the sheriff's office
and hopefully, we'll get
lucky, catch him in the act.
All right. Thanks, man.
Hey, listen, I
I didn't want the weekend
to end like this.
Oh, oh, don't stress about it.
We all had a good time.
- You didn't think it was a bust?
- No! No, not at all. Did you?
Pretty much.
you got a lot of stuff on your plate,
and we both know that stress
can trigger other things.
Yeah, I wanted to blow off
some steam, you know?
Just make sure that you're
taking care of yourself
in the process, okay?
Yeah, no. I'm good. I'm good.
Thank you.
I'm speaking for all of us.
We're worried about Jack.
Well, you know, he's hard-headed
when it comes to his personal life.
Just do me a favor, keep an eye on him?
I am.
Preach. He left his
kayaks at the launch.
I got ya.
- All right, time to go.
- All right, man.
Great to see ya.
- Thanks, Top.
- All right, later.
- Yeah.
- Yup, okay, Preach.
- All right.
- Take it easy, Jack.
- You drive safe.
- You bet.
You know,
they're worried about you.
There's nothing to worry about.
Hey! I thought you'd
be with your buddies.
Well, they had to head back, so
How was it?
I mean, I guess it wasn't
quite what I expected, but
Okay. You okay?
- Yeah. All good.
- You sure?
You look like you haven't slept.
Well, we were up late, you know?
Had a few too many.
I guess I don't handle my
hangovers the way I used to.
- You know, I should probably get going.
- Okay.
Where are you headed?
I promised Charmaine
I'd stop by after
the boys left, so
Did you figure your thing
out with Mark, the whole
Oh, um No, not yet.
I thought a run might help
me think of something.
Probably a good idea.
All right. Well, I'm around
if you need anything.
Okay, thanks. And if there's
anything I can do
I know where to find you.
- Hey, promise me something.
- What?
Promise me you'll never let me
turn into my father, okay?
I like your father.
Your mother is kinda
Stop it!
No, I mean it. I don't want
to turn into that guy.
I don't want to be 70 years old
and working my ass off and
"I'm rich, but so miserable."
Oh, Mark.
I mean, I love what I do,
but the last thing I want to see
before I go, I want it to be you.
hospital meatloaf.
- Ah, promise me.
- Yes, I promise.
So, then what are you gonna do
with your days when you retire?
Sail around the world,
making love to you in every port.
When Charmaine's not around,
we get along just fine.
And Jack's coming to
pick him up tomorrow,
which is one day too late if you ask me,
but he wanted to get
Charmaine settled first.
Who are you trying to kid? He loves you.
You love anybody who follows orders.
No, I baked today.
He probably just smells
the graham crackers.
Oh are we having pie?
Why not?
I made it for Muriel.
I felt bad. So I went over
to Muriel's to apologize.
- Now don't you feel better?
- No.
Apologizing to Muriel is like
pouring water on a grease fire.
All it does is fuel the flames.
No matter how difficult somebody
is, if you've done wrong by them,
the right thing to do is apologize.
I'm proud of you.
How proud?
Very, very proud.
Hi, Mel.
Yeah, sure.
I'll grab my sewing kit
and be right there.
- Is everything all right?
- I'll explain on the way.
Come on, Tucker.
- I I have a surprise.
- Oh?
I'm not sure I'm ready
for any more surprise
Isn't it amazing?
Did you do all this?
No, my aunt and uncle in
Portland bought everything,
and then my friends from the
salon put everything together.
I know it's bad luck to
do any of this stuff
before the end of the first trimester,
but they were just so excited.
I I couldn't say no.
And isn't the theme perfect?
When you wish upon a
star, dreams come true.
Uh-huh. Yeah, it's like a fairy tale.
Feel how soft these are.
I think they're chenille.
Or maybe they're fleece.
I dunno, but they're just so soft.
And I love the pattern,
it's just so cute
You okay?
I'll be back in a second.
Yeah, I'll be right out.
- Is everything all right?
- Yeah, I, uh, I just
I gotta get back to the bar.
- Right now?
- Yeah, Preacher's slammed.
- How do you know?
- Well, he's been there most of the day.
Why don't you call and
see if he needs a hand?
- No.
- Why not?
Look, I really gotta get going.
Why don't you get somebody
to cover for you?
What is this, National
Question Jack Day?
Jack, I'm not trying to upset you.
I know, I know. I'm just I gotta
I gotta get going. All right?
I'll, uh, I'll call ya later.
Are you sure you're okay
with me using your boat?
It was just gathering dust.
Well, I appreciate it.
It's a lovely tribute.
The, uh, the actual
anniversary is tomorrow.
Maybe if you two ladies
want to be alone
I mean, if this is a woman thing
This boat is older than you are.
If it sinks, I'll need someone
to go in after it.
And the waders are in the truck.
I would like you to stay.
You know, we can come back and
do this tomorrow if you'd like.
No. No, no, I thought about it.
And I think that the only way
I'm gonna get through tomorrow
is if I treat it like any other day.
You know, which is why
I wanted to do this now.
A year ago today,
things weren't perfect,
but we were together, and
that's how I want to remember it.
She's ready.
Are you?
I hope you're sailing right now, babe.
- Everything okay?
- I have to go.
No, I'm sorry, I have to go.
You bored?
I know I took forever in Sephora.
Sorry. No, it's just the bar.
I don't wanna be late getting back.
There's more to life than work.
Says the person who
doesn't need to work.
Uh, I have a job.
But you don't take that job seriously
because you don't need to work.
I work because I have to pay for things.
You're at the bar way more
than you need to be.
- Only when Jack needs me.
- And you never say no.
He's done a lot for me.
I think he's taking advantage.
Hey, that that's not true.
He knows how much you like him.
And he also knows that
you won't say no to him.
Look, I had to learn the hard
way to stand up for myself
because no one else ever would.
But your parents support you.
My parents wanted to ship me
to some Outward Bound
prison camp for teens,
so they wouldn't have to explain to
their friends at the country club
why I wasn't at university.
I didn't commit murder. I stole
some makeup from a CVS once.
I had to threaten to run away,
so they'd send me here instead.
All I'm saying is you need to start
thinking about what you want.
I'm not gonna let you do this,
Jack! You're not going in!
- I know what I'm doing! Let me go.
- Think about what you're doing!
- You're crazy!
- Look, meet me at the bottom, then!
Mel, he won't listen to me.
He's dead if he puts his
kayak in that water.
Jack, hey!
The hell are you doing here?
What are you doing? It's just not safe.
Look, I know what I'm doing, okay?
All right, I'm gonna
I'm gonna come with you.
I said I'm coming with you.
No, you're not.
Well, if it's safe enough for
you, it's safe enough for me.
- Can you stop it?
- Do you have another life vest?
Look, did you hear me?
I don't want you here, please!
Yeah, I heard you.
- Then go, leave!
- No, after we kayak!
It must not be that dangerous.
Right? Because you're
not the kind of man
that would risk leaving
twins without a father.
I'm gonna head back up.
You coming?
Thank you.
You know, when Mark died
and when I lost my baby
for a long time, I I didn't
care whether I lived or died.
I'm sorry. I wish I knew
how to help you.
Someone was missing from the reunion.
He didn't make it back.
And it was my fault.
It was my job to make sure
that my guys came back alive.
Jack, you know that's
an impossible standard
to hold yourself to.
People die in war.
Mel, if I can't keep a grown man safe,
then how am I supposed to
protect a helpless infant?
No, I'm sorry, make that
two helpless infants.
You are the strongest, most
responsible man that I know.
I mean, look at how
you've devoted yourself
to taking care of this town.
If anyone is fit to be
a father, it's you.
I don't trust myself.
You know, down there,
I was gonna go with you.
I was completely willing
to trust you with my life.
Oh, please.
You know I'd never put you in danger.
I know.
You just made my point.
You are gonna have two children
that you love more than
anything else in the world.
And they are gonna love
you more than anything.
You're not gonna want to miss that.
Should we get going?
In a minute.
- Where's Ricky?
- Never showed up.
All right. Uh, thanks, George.
You can You can clock out.
All right, thanks.
Late dinner?
I came by for today's
special, but you're all out.
Folks around here, they eat early.
Oh, not me. I'm a night owl.
My day doesn't start until
around 4:00 in the afternoon.
Not a bad trade if you're
in the restaurant business.
So, tell me something.
Why are you wasting your
talents in this tiny bar
when you could be working
at a five-star restaurant
or, better yet, your own place?
Uh well, once I
settled in Virgin River,
I never considered moving. The folks
here, they're like family to me.
Family is great.
But sometimes a little distance
could be a good thing.
I don't know.
I don't think my, uh
my résumé would wow anyone
in an upscale restaurant,
and I couldn't imagine starting
from the bottom either.
What if I could help you?
Could be a chance at a whole new life.
Relax, you're not gonna be that late.
I'm I'm relaxed.
If this is relaxed, I'd hate
to see you stressed out.
You should really keep
your seat belt on.
Oh, my God. You sound just like my dad.
