Virgin River (2019) s03e06 Episode Script

Jack and Jill

I'm fine, Mel.
You have really low blood
pressure. Are you okay?
What do you think happened?
I don't know.
What the hell is alprazolam?
That's Xanax.
Mel, thanks for everything.
I just really need to sleep.
Oh, yeah. Yeah. We'll let you rest.
- If you need anything, we're downstairs.
- Mm.
Why is she taking Xanax?
It's usually prescribed for anxiety.
Yeah, I know, but she doesn't
even like taking aspirin.
I don't know.
We were all a mess when you were shot.
Did she take too much?
I think she might have
mixed it with alcohol.
I saw an empty wine glass in her room.
I feel like this is my fault.
No, this isn't your fault.
What do you think I should do?
Well, I think you should
let her rest for tonight
and try to talk to
her about it tomorrow.
It's okay.
She's gonna be fine.
If you need anything, I'm here, okay?
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
Yeah, I'm coming. I'm coming.
Hold your horses. I'm coming!
What All right, all right!
- Excuse me.
- Wha
Sorry about the knocking.
I told her to chill.
Don't worry about it.
We are in the middle of a
crisis. We should all be worried.
What is going on here?
Carol Foreman has a migraine.
Okay. Does she need me
to make a house call?
No, no, but she is president
of the Lumberjack Games
committee, remember?
Why is that pertinent information?
Because she can't run the
games in her condition,
so we have to fill in for her.
Oh no, no. We No, no.
I told Hope I am not
equipped to work the games.
But if we don't help out, it
will be an absolute disaster.
Now, your job will be to make
sure that the events run smoothly.
I'd do it, but I'm working the entrance.
Well, how am I gonna oversee
multiple games all by myself?
You're not! I am
giving you an assistant.
FYI, I have no idea
what she's talking about.
That makes two of us.
Muriel has agreed to
emcee the competitions,
Jack and Preacher are
slotted to work the food,
and Connie's setting up a bakery tent.
So it's like a fair?
It's more like the
Olympics for lumberjacks.
Why is that a thing?
Well, it's an annual tribute
at the top of Shelter Mountain
to honor the frontiersmen and women
who founded Virgin River. It is a hoot.
Jo Ellen said I need to
dress like a lumberjack.
- Everyone does.
- Why?
Well, first, it's festive, and
second, it's cold as hell up there.
Anyway, um, here is
everything that you need.
The event schedule,
volunteer worker shifts,
list of participants, emcee
cues, and safety protocols.
Oh! It's Nick! Sorry.
What about us?
I'll be just a second!
Well, have you looked
in the bottom drawer?
I know how I got here. How'd
you get roped into this mess?
She let me stay at the B&B last
night and wouldn't let me pay her,
so I felt like I owed her one.
Oh, I see, I see.
Well, when Hope gets back,
she's gonna owe me a heck
of a lot more than one.
- Hey!
- Oh, hey!
What you doing?
just help setting up
the axe-throwing targets.
I brought you a coffee.
- Thanks.
- Hm.
What? What are you looking at?
Do you have any idea
how gorgeous you are?
- Did you hit your head already?
- Nope!
'Cause I got my trauma kit right here.
Oh no, I'm right as rain. Thank you.
How much first aid
do you plan on giving?
Well, considering I have
never attended an event
with chainsaws, guns, and
axe-throwing, I'm not entirely sure.
Okay, fair enough.
Look, I know I already said yes to this,
but, um, what exactly is a tree race?
Well, actually, it's a treetop race.
- Ah!
- Thanks.
Um, I still don't know
what that means, so
Mm. You kinda have to
see it to understand it.
- And the "Jack and Jill"?
- Oh, we tandem-saw through a tree trunk.
- Are you kidding?
- Nope.
- Oh my God!
- I knew you'd love it.
Oh, wow, all right.
Well, full disclosure,
I I don't like heights,
and I've never touched a saw.
Ah, you're gonna do
great. Don't you worry.
- Don't say I didn't warn you!
- Don't you worry.
Um, have you seen Brie this morning?
- No, not yet.
- Hm.
- She texted, said she'd be here later.
- Uh-huh.
I knew something was up with her too.
I feel like I should've pushed harder.
No. Sometimes, people aren't ready
to talk about their feelings, you know?
- Beating yourself up isn't gonna help her.
- Jack! Jack!
- Can we talk about it later?
- Yeah.
I love you.
I love you too.
This is so cool!
Certainly is loud!
- Whoa, whoa!
- Hey, buddy!
Why can't I try it?
Because I've been using a
chainsaw since I was seven.
Best Christmas morning ever!
Your parents gave you a
chainsaw for Christmas?
Oh, you should've seen me.
I was more excited than
a dog with two tails!
We're not ready for the Hot Saw yet.
You know what? Don't you fret.
You'll be grown before you know it!
Bert had a chainsaw when he
was seven, and I'm almost ten.
Well, people didn't know a
lot about safety back then.
Now, why don't we go down to the trails
and see if we can go horseback riding?
I wanna watch Bert and Molly practice.
Okay. Um, I'll be right back.
Don't you move.
- Don't talk to strangers.
- All right.
Hey, Doc! Jo Ellen said you needed me?
We're supposed to have 14
of these harnesses here,
and all we got is 13.
Are you sure? Jack said
all the equipment was here.
Yes, I am sure. I know how to count.
I count 14.
Well, that's not right.
Well, someone must've returned the
other one while I wasn't looking.
Is there anything else I can do?
Yeah, Jeb needs some help
down at the axe-throwing.
Where is that exactly?
This place is massive.
Just keep walking that way until
you see someone throwing an axe.
I can't believe this is my life.
Does Jo Ellen look upset to you?
What can we do?
Uh, Mom, before we go over there,
I have to tell you something.
What is it, honey?
When you were in the parking lot
talking to Mrs. Gardener, I
I ran into Connie.
And I told her that you're sick.
- Okay.
- I'm so sorry.
She was asking me all these
questions, and I didn't wanna lie.
- I didn't know
- No, honey, don't. It's okay.
It is okay. There's
nothing to be upset about.
Your cancer's all I
think about. It's like
how can I talk about anything else?
Sweetheart, I, um
I didn't want anyone to know
because I didn't wanna be a burden.
Now I realize I've put
all the burden on you.
- That's not right.
- No, this shouldn't be about me.
You're going through
this just as much as I am.
Come on.
I don't want you to carry this
by yourself. Come on. Let's go.
- Are you sure?
- Mm-hmm, yeah!
Yeah. In fact, as your mother, I insist.
Come on.
- Hi.
- Hi, ladies.
I'm so, so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
It's okay.
Hey, I'm kinda busy Can I call you back?
No, I need your help.
Why? What's wrong?
I have to re-home Tucker.
- What? Why?
- Todd's allergic.
We thought we could make it work,
but his allergies are
keeping him up at night,
and if he can't sleep,
he can't work.
Well, if it's allergies,
tell him to go see Mel or Doc.
He doesn't have time
to take shots, and the
over-the-counter stuff makes him drowsy.
Well, that would fix his insomnia.
don't make this difficult, okay?
I have asked everyone that I
know, and nobody can take Tucker.
And if I can't find a home
for him in the next few days
All right. I'll take him.
You will?
Oh my God! Thank you so much!
Um, we'll be over as soon
as Todd's out of his meeting.
Thank you.
Oh, look who shows up after
all the work is finished.
Yeah, I was working too.
- Fishing is not work, buddy.
- I'm talking about your case.
Brady doesn't have an alibi
for the night of the shooting.
What? Bea said he was at her bar.
Well, when I started
re-interviewing witnesses,
she changed her story.
There's now two hours that
Brady's unaccounted for.
You think Bea was lying?
No, I think she just
made an honest mistake.
Brady's our primary suspect now.
Nah, come on.
I mean, we had our differences, but
We were brothers.
Yeah, but, I mean, you know as well
as I do, Iraq changed all of us.
Yeah, but still, I mean
I I just don't see it.
I can't rule anyone out.
Gotta go where the case leads me.
Okay, so the next time
you work with chainsaws,
might I suggest putting on some pants?
You're good to go.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Hey, you came!
Yeah, but I, uh, missed
the dress code memo.
Ah, well, you know,
they're selling fake beards
over at the log-rolling tent, so
I'm really glad you came.
Yeah, I promised Jack I'd help out.
Yeah? I promised Jack that I would
saw through a tree trunk with him.
You really must love my brother.
I do.
I am starving.
What is good around here?
Ooh, we could raid the bakery tent.
I am in.
Ah yes!
- Okay.
- By the way, I am sorry about last night.
Oh my gosh, no. I'm
just glad I was there.
I think I just ate something
that didn't agree with me.
Brie, um
I saw the Xanax.
- You went through my purse?
- No, I No, I didn't.
You knocked it over, and then
Jack picked them up.
So Jack knows.
- Yes.
- Great.
How much are you taking?
I mean, one isn't enough for me.
Okay, well, did you mix them with
wine? 'Cause I saw an empty glass.
It's just that sometimes
I need them to work faster.
It was a mistake. Definitely
won't happen again.
Okay. Well, both Xanax and alcohol
depress central nervous system
functions like breathing, so
You know, they can be fatal.
Yeah, I was just, uh
I was just having such a bad day.
Look, I get it.
You know, after Jack was
shot, I I had some bad days.
And, um
I started taking the
Xanax before the shooting.
Do you wanna tell me what's going on?
I was, uh, dating this guy in
Sacramento. He was an attorney.
And it ended badly.
Really badly.
So, I quit my job.
- Did you work with him?
- Uh, no, no, I just
I couldn't stand the idea
of seeing him in court.
- I'm really sorry.
- Hm.
You know, you should talk to Jack.
He's really worried about you.
Yeah, I don't know.
We're not as close as we used to be.
Yeah, I I get it.
But you know what? You're both here
now, so maybe you can change that.
They have really good,
um, cinnamon swirls.
- I'm gonna need two of them, so
- Okay.
Probably isn't the
best time to ask this,
but, uh, are you still pissed at me?
Why don't I take these?
Whatever, Ricky.
If you don't wanna live together,
I'll figure something out.
I have options.
- I just don't think we're ready.
- Why not?
'Cause we haven't been
going out that long.
We're still getting to know each other.
Well enough to have sex.
Having sex doesn't mean we'll spend
the rest of our lives together.
- Neither does living together.
- Yeah, it's pretty close.
Hey, uh, can we talk about this later?
Why? There's nothing else to talk about.
Lizzie, can you help me?
Yeah, I think Jeb needs
you. Can we catch up later?
When I found her ♪
At the end of the rainbow ♪
I thought my dreams came true ♪
She stood there smiling ♪
Time stood still ♪
Hey, Jack, honey, where's your Jill?
She just texted. She'll
be here in a second.
Lost your better half?
You and Mel sure make a cute couple.
- Thanks.
- If you're smart, you'd give that lady a ring
and get to starting a family.
What? That's the fun part!
Hey, I'm sorry! Jim Tull twisted his
ankle at the log-rolling,
and I had to
- Don't worry. Your gloves.
- Sorry.
Looks like everybody's here.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen,
to the Jack and Jill.
Now the first team to cut
all the way through this log
will win this lovely, handmade
Paul Bunyan trophy.
All right, let's get ready!
- All right, ready?
- So on my horn.
You can do it!
Hey, babe, bend your knees.
- What?
- Bend your knees!
Strength comes from
your legs, not your arms.
- Okay, like this?
- Yeah, that's it.
Let's go, Jack! Go on, Mel!
Come on, Bobby! Let's go!
Hey, did you get a
chance to talk to Brie?
Uh, you know, I think
she's gonna talk to you.
I think she's avoiding me. I
just wanna know what's going on.
She said she had a bad breakup with some
attorney in Sacramento a few months ago.
I didn't even know she had a boyfriend.
Oh my gosh.
This is so hard.
I thought I was in shape until now.
You're still the hottest Jill here.
- I see what you're doing.
- What?
You think compliments
are gonna keep me going?
Yeah, I'm hoping so. This
team requires two people.
That's my girl! Come on.
So Brie really quit her
job over a boyfriend?
You know, you really should
talk to her about it, but yes.
She said she didn't
wanna see him in court.
It's hard to believe she got
this twisted up over a guy.
I think she was in love with him.
You don't know my sister.
She doesn't let anything get
in the way of her career. Ever.
For some people, when they get
older, their priorities change.
What do you mean by that?
I just think every You know,
love is different for everyone.
Sometimes when things get
serious, people wanna pull back.
Why do I feel like that was aimed at me?
It wasn't.
Well, I can get close to
people. I mean, look at us!
Yeah, but
- Well
- What?
Oh God.
I just think the idea of a relationship
changing your life kinda freaks you out.
This year's Jack and Jill are
siblings Molly and Bert Gordon!
I don't think the Lumberjack Games
is the place to have this conversation.
I wasn't trying to.
- Hey, guys, have you seen Christopher?
- No.
He was at the Hot Saw
warm-up when we left.
Said he was waiting for you.
Yeah, no, he's not there.
Don't worry. We'll find him.
Doc, you're gonna be late.
Oh, no, the canoe race
doesn't start for an hour,
and these vests will
all be done by then.
I'm talking about the
trap shooting competition.
Oh. Oh no. I told Hope
I'm not shooting this year.
You're on the list.
Well, just go ahead and scratch me off.
Including you, there's
only three people signed up,
so if you don't participate,
it's hardly an event. It would
Well, I don't think anyone's
gonna care whether I shoot or not.
Jo Ellen, what's wrong?
- I was just with Lilly and the girls.
- Oh.
I can't believe she has cancer.
I know. I know. I'm so sorry.
I know how close the two of you are.
What are we supposed to do?
I just can't wrap my head around it.
What are we supposed to do?
Just sit around and wait until
until she's gone?
You know, when it comes to the end,
none of us really know
what's gonna happen.
So all we can do is just
go on living our lives.
Even though it's all gonna disappear?
Look at it this way.
If you spend all your
time focused on the ending,
you are gonna miss the show.
Thank you.
I needed to hear that.
You know what? I did too.
- Hey! Have you seen Christopher?
- You mean recently?
- Yeah.
- Well, then, no.
- Did you see the Jack and Jill?
- Oh!
I had a number of people tell me
that my enthusiasm is inspiring.
I heard you were great.
And I am so excited to
watch you defend your title.
Oh, well, I don't think
this is gonna be my year.
Well, now you're just being modest.
No one shoots like you.
You are too kind, but look at the
time. I can't be late to my check-in.
Okay. Well, you break a leg,
or in this case, a clay disc.
Will do!
Let's hope that's all I break.
- Hey, Alex!
- Hey.
- I didn't expect to see you here.
- Yeah, my kids wanted to come.
- Oh.
- Spent a small fortune on Klondike Bars.
Well, it's all for a
good cause, you know?
Which is why we'll be back next year.
Glad to see you're not
letting your AMD hold you back.
Actually, there was a mix-up,
and I didn't have much choice,
but my chances of hitting
anything are 10% at best.
Have you given any more thought
to the anti-VEGF therapy?
Uh, Doc. You're on deck.
Oh! Yeah.
- Uh, we can talk later.
- Thanks.
I'm sorry to interrupt you.
It's just if I get behind schedule,
Jo Ellen will have a conniption.
Oh, I get it, believe me.
Hey! You seen Christopher?
Uh, no.
- Keep an eye out, will you?
- Sure.
Hey, Jack, uh
Sorry about last night. I'm just
dealing with some stuff, so
I just wanna help you.
Thanks, but I don't need help.
Why are you pushing me away?
I'm not.
Okay, then talk to me.
Come on. Hey! Whatever it
is, I can handle it, okay?
It's personal.
So what?
before the shooting,
when's the last time you called?
What? So, you're keeping me
in the dark about your life
because I didn't call you enough?
No, but ever since
you got back from Iraq,
you have been emotionally
and physically MIA.
Not just with me, but
with the entire family.
Come on. I love you.
Yeah, I love you too.
But sometimes, it feels
like we're strangers.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Um, any luck?
I was just gonna check
out the parking lot.
I'll go check by the horses.
Feel free to tell me
it's none of my business,
but is there something
going on with you guys?
Honestly, I don't know.
What do you mean?
She said something
about me getting spooked
when a relationship turns
serious or something, and I
I honestly don't know
where she's coming from.
I think I might.
- Congrats, Doc. You still got it.
- Thanks.
- How about that, huh?
- Hey!
Hey! Hello, Sergeant Gomez.
How you doing? PF
training going all right?
Down to a seven-minute mile pace.
How's the ASVAB prep coming?
Need to get my PC score up,
and we should be good to go.
Excellent. You should
try and concentrate
on that mathematical part of the exam.
How you doing physically?
Doing okay. The cardio
is the hardest part
- Any sign of him?
- No.
Okay. I'm gonna call
Mike and the sheriff.
All right.
Wait! There he is.
I'm gonna text Jack and Bert,
let them know you found him.
- Yeah. Thanks for all your help.
- Of course.
- What are you doing?
- Eating turkey.
I thought I told you not to move.
Listen, I know that you are angry
and that you are frustrated with me,
but that doesn't make it okay
for you to ignore what I say.
Do you understand that
I am responsible for you?
And if anything was ever to happen
to you, I'd never forgive myself.
Why not?
Because I promised to take care of you.
I can't do that unless you help me.
I'm really sorry.
It's okay. Just tell me
you won't do it again.
I think we should shake on it.
When we shake on it, we have a deal.
Okay, tell me again how
this is a lumberjack thing?
Well, loggers sometimes use
harnesses when they fell branches.
Ah. Just my luck.
You wanna do this or not?
Oh yeah. Yeah, I love the idea of
hanging from a tree
like a howler monkey.
- That a yes or no?
- It's a "yes."
- Sounded like a "no."
- It's a "yes."
- Ready?
- Yep.
Okay! Listen up, everyone!
The treetop race is about to start.
We have multiple teams and
heats in different locations,
so go on out, find your
favorite team, cheer 'em on.
Whatever team finishes the
course with the fastest time wins.
Muriel, that megaphone
looks mighty good on you.
Well, thank you, Charles.
- Okay! Are we ready?
- Yeah!
One, two
Go, Jeb!
Come on! Come on!
- Listen.
- What?
Hey, look. There's
something I need to tell you.
If you're afraid of
heights, now's not the time.
I'm being serious.
Okay, what?
What you said back in the Jack
and Jill was not fair, okay?
If you remember, I was the one
who wanted the relationship.
- You were the one protecting yourself.
- Yeah, I know!
But I made the leap. Now you're
the one protecting yourself.
Are you talking about having babies?
I need time to think things through.
It's only been a couple of days!
All right, you go first.
Jack, I know it's only
been a couple of days.
I just thought we'd have another
conversation about it by now.
Well, I'm sorry, but I
don't have an answer for you.
I'm not asking for an answer.
I'm talking about communication.
Okay. It feels like you want
an answer as soon as possible
so you can explore your options.
Whoa, what does that mean?
Well, if I say no, it's
not too late for plan B.
Excuse me! There is no plan B.
You okay?
Yeah, I'm fabulous.
- Thanks.
- You're welcome.
Here, give me your hand.
Give me your hand. I'm on your te
Okay! Oh yeah!
- Suppose you're happy now?
- Yeah, that was pretty funny.
Yeah? It makes you laugh? Yeah?
- Okay, let me help you.
- Stop. No!
Come on. I'm trying to
help you. You gotta stop.
- Make me!
- Yeah, you want me to? Really?
And the race is over!
Good job, everyone.
I think we lost again.
There's always next year.
I'm not doing this next year!
- Why?
- You're cute as a lumberjack.
What are you doing all the
way up here? Hiding out?
Oh, no. Just had a thing with
Jack and needed some space.
Oh. Want me to leave you alone?
- You okay?
- Yeah, yeah, just sibling stuff.
I, uh, saw you talking to Mike.
What? No.
I'm kidding.
Anyway, I was thinking
about taking the bike out.
Wanna go for a ride?
Well, there's this cool little
Italian joint in Grace Valley.
Isn't that, like, two hours away?
Why? You got somewhere
else you wanna be?
Not that I can think of.
Come on.
- Uh
- Hey!
Did you win?
- Not this year, no.
- Uh-huh.
Where's Todd?
He's having some beers with
some guys from the club, so
Here's Tucker.
You know, Char
He, uh, in the mornings,
likes to have his tummy
rubbed before breakfast,
and he gets three walks a day,
and he prefers to nap in
the sunlight, so, um
Here's his food and his toys.
His blankie.
You really don't have to do this.
Uh, yes, I do, actually.
Todd's not allergic.
He's, um
he's just not a dog person.
I thought I could change his mind,
but obviously, I couldn't. So
So he's just making you
get rid of your dog, huh?
He's not making me.
It's a sacrifice, Jack.
Pretty crappy sacrifice, if you ask me.
I wasn't asking you.
Look, are you gonna take Tucker or not?
- Hey, buddy.
- Uh, I have to go.
It'll be okay.
- How do you feel about dogs?
- Why are you asking me that?
Todd doesn't wanna keep Tucker.
- What?
- Yeah!
Oh! It must've broken
her heart to give him up.
I think she should give Todd
away, but that's just my opinion.
And you are entitled to your opinion.
Okay, buddy, here we go.
You wait here. It's okay,
it's okay. Come here.
Look, I'm sorry that we ended
up talking about our relationship
in the middle of a sporting event.
Not how I wanted the day to go.
No, me neither.
I'm sorry too.
Brie said she told you about Mandy.
Oh yeah.
Yeah. I just, uh, I told
her I wouldn't say anything.
And I figured you would
end up telling me someday.
Well, really, there's not much to tell.
I mean, we got married
right out of high school.
I joined the marines.
She filed for divorce
when I shipped out to Iraq.
The whole marriage lasted
less than three months.
Hm. Why didn't you just tell me before?
Honestly, it's not
something I ever think about.
I'm sorry you found out the way you did.
Yeah, um
It just makes me wonder
what else I don't know about.
Like what?
I don't know. I just wanna
be prepared for the future.
Yeah, I get it.
But you told me to take some time
to think about the baby, so
I know. I know, and
I'm sorry. I didn't
I just didn't think it was
gonna be this hard to wait.
You know, wherever we end up,
I just want you to be happy.
I am happy. I wanna be with you.
And I want a family.
What about the twins?
You know, if we got married,
you'd be their stepmother.
I know.
I know, and I would love
them with all of my heart.
I would
But I know myself, and loving them
is not gonna stop this
feeling that I have
to have a baby of my own.
I just want you to think about it.
I know, and I will. I am.
Hey, I love you.
I love you too.
- Can't you tell them you'll call back?
- No, I'm still on the clock. Sorry.
All right, I'm gonna pack up.
Okay, I'll be right there.
There's an emergency at Lilly's.
