Virgin River (2019) s04e03 Episode Script


[gentle music playing]
- [Mel] I don't know why you're surprised.
- No way divorce is Mom's idea.
- Why not?
- She worships him.
I guarantee, if it was her idea,
it's because he's a narcissist.
There must be more to the story.
Why do you think it's his fault?
- Why are you defending my dad?
- Not trying to.
All I'm saying
is there might be another explanation.
- You just don't know about it.
- I'm not gonna hold my breath.
I hope this apple fell far from the tree.
- Maybe you dodged a bullet.
- What does that mean?
Never got a chance to finish my proposal.
Now you got time, you can think about
- whether you wanna be married or not.
- Jack
we both agreed to postpone the proposal
and just focus on the pregnancy.
I know.
- I didn't wanna overwhelm you.
- I was overwhelmed.
But here's the deal.
Okay? Whether or not you ask me
to marry you, you are stuck with me.
- What?
- I know.
- Like, forever?
- And ever.
That works both ways.
You're gonna be stuck with me too.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
[Mel] Mm.
- Are you okay?
- Yeah, I'm just a little riled up.
- You're pretty cute when you're riled up.
- Oh, you like that?
- Mm-hm.
- Ooh.
- Oh, I thought you were tired.
- Lucky for you I just got a second wind.

[watch chimes]
Okay, three-mile mark.
- What was our pace?
- Uh
- Eleven minutes. [chuckles]
- Really? That slow?
I know. But Jack is worried
that I'm still running,
- so I told him that I'd pull back and
- Why is he worried about you running?
I get shin splints.
Got it.
Well, thanks for letting me tag along.
I didn't really feel like running alone
this morning.
Yeah. It was a pleasant surprise
when you called.
- Please come with me anytime.
- I will take you up on that.
- Okay.
- Oh, I gotta go.
- Jack's waiting for me at the bar.
- Hey, wait a minute. Um
I just wanted to say I'm really sorry
- about what's going on with your parents.
- Yeah. It's a shock.
- I thought they were solid.
- Yeah.
Well, if you need anything at all,
I'm here to help.
You need to remind my brother
how lucky he is to have you.
- Okay.
- Bye.
- Thank you.
- Bye.
- Hey.
- Oh, hey.
- How's it going?
- Good. I've just finished my second loop.
- Yeah, nice. I'm doing my third right now.
- Seriously?
Scout's honor,
I actually might go for a fourth.
Wow. Uh, you trying to show me up?
Actually, I am trying to get yesterday out
of my head. That whole stillborn thing.
I've had patients die.
I've just Never a baby.
I got the lab results back. I rushed them.
It was a blood clot in the placenta.
Oh, okay. So prenatal care
In this situation?
Wouldn't have prevented the stillbirth.
Well, I'll call the parents
and let them know.
- [Cameron] Yeah.
- Uh
If you need to clear your head,
I can cover for you at the clinic.
Yeah, thanks. No, but I think
I'd feel better just being around people.
Hey, I You know, I was gonna mention,
um, maybe you might wanna have dinner
- with me and Jack sometime?
- Uh, how about tonight? I could barbecue.
Unless you can't, fine.
We could have dinner next week or
No, no, no, we would love to.
- Check in with Jack and let me know.
- He'll be fine.
Okay. Uh, around 6:00?
- Okay. I will make a blueberry crumble.
- Wow. Super human at work and you bake.
It's the only thing I know how to bake
and I haven't made it in years,
- so it might be bad.
- Right, it probably won't be good.
Probably not.
Bet it'll be awesome.
I'll see you tonight.
Okay. Bye.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- So did Dad leave?
- Yeah, a few hours ago.
- What did he say?
- He said Mom wants to travel
and he can't because of work.
- What? That's ridiculous.
- Yeah.
I mean,
the problem is they can't live alone.
- Why not?
- Well, they're getting older.
If they're alone, they're gonna need help.
Did you know Mom can't drive at night?
She won't even touch an ATM
because she doesn't trust computers.
- And Dad?
- Last time Mom went to the mall,
Dad made pasta, left the gas on.
If I hadn't stopped by,
he would've blown up the house.
You're gonna have to stop this.
- Me?
- You're the golden child.
- I No, I am not the golden child.
- Oh, please. If Dad sent out
one of those newsletters,
I wouldn't be mentioned.
Think Mom would let that happen?
You're her prince.
Gotta do something.
Otherwise, you end up living with Dad.
And you're gonna be living with Mom.
Oh, Christ. Yeah,
we gotta treat this like an emergency.
You deal with Mom
and I'll figure out how to deal with Dad
- after I meet with Valerie.
- What?
- I'm signing my contract today.
- Yeah.
Oh, that's fantastic. Oh
That means
you're gonna be here for a year.
Yes, unless you piss me off.
Well, that's great
and I'm really happy you're staying,
but there's one favor
that I need from you.
You don't wanna hear this,
but be careful with Brady, okay?
He has a habit of attracting trouble.
I don't know where Brady and I stand,
but whatever happens,
I can take care of myself.
I know. I just don't want you
to take any unnecessary risks.
- Then I need to ask you a favor.
- What?
Will you talk to Mike,
find out if he'll help out with the case?
Sure. I can't guarantee
he's gonna cooperate.
Do what I do
and don't take no for an answer.
Got your stubborn streak from Dad,
you know?
- You got your hair from Mom. Wanna trade?
- No. Never.
[pensive music playing]
Mom. It's Jack.
Will you give me a call when you get this?
I love you.
Hi, Ben. Um
- Did you and Lee get my message?
- Yeah, I did.
Lee's inside with Iris.
They're both asleep.
I wanted you to know
there's nothing you could have done
to prevent the blood clot.
- Okay.
- I'm so sorry.
I hope that knowing that helps.
People keep saying they're sorry,
but it's It doesn't change anything.
- I know. You're right. There are no words.
- Like somebody sliced open my heart.
I understand.
I really do.
I just want you to know
that I'm here if you ever need anything.
Thank you, but I
Nothing is gonna bring Daisy back.
[line disconnects]
- What are you doing?
- Didn't want anyone to overhear.
This whole Christopher thing,
has your detective found anything?
- No. Uh
- [sighs]
No, not yet,
but I'm trying to stay positive.
I've said this before,
but I feel I let you down.
When I saw Vince,
maybe I should have grabbed a weapon,
like a kitchen knife.
Connie, none of this is your fault.
If you had done that,
he may have hurt you and Christopher.
You made the right decision cooperating.
No, but it doesn't feel like it.
I'm so worried.
I know.
I know. I am too.
Hey. I'm Dr. Hayek.
I put in an order for takeout.
- Oh, you're Cameron.
- Yeah. Have we met?
I'm Jack Sheridan.
You work with Mel, right?
Been looking forward to meeting you.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah, my patient said you are the glue
- that holds this town together.
- I don't know about that.
You got a cool setup here.
Thanks. Yeah, we're happy with it.
Hey, Preach, come meet Dr. Hayek.
- Hey.
- Cameron.
- Preacher. Good to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
- I'll get your order.
- [Cameron] Thanks.
- [Jack] So how are you liking it here?
- It's exceeded my expectations.
Everyone in this town has been great.
Especially Mel, she's incredible.
Yeah, she's one of a kind.
I lucked out, because I've worked
with some real assholes.
Overall, people are good to one another.
- Sense of community.
- Why not fill me in tonight?
- Why, what's tonight?
- I invited you and Mel over for a barbecue
at Jo Ellen's.
Well, thanks, but I don't think
the B and B has a working grill.
- So the one on the back patio
- Is purely ornamental.
Jo Ellen's been nagging Nick
to buy her a new one.
- Damn. That's too bad.
- Here you go.
- Oh. Thank you.
- You bet.
We can barbecue at our place at the cabin.
- It's not gonna put you out?
- Not at all.
- I'll grab steaks from the back.
- Sure?
- Absolutely.
- Sounds good. See you tonight.
- All right.
- For you.
Thank you.
Have a good day.
So, what else did Denny say?
His grandma and Doc dated when Doc
was in college and she got pregnant.
She broke up with Doc
and never told him about the baby.
- And the baby is Denny's dad?
- Right.
- Wonder why he's here.
- Wants to get to know his grandfather.
Oh, Lizzie, so naive.
There's always a motive.
You watch way too much true crime.
Jo Ellen thinks
Denny's after an inheritance.
I think he's planning to blackmail Doc.
- Blackmail him for what?
- For keeping his love child a secret.
Doc introduced him as his grandson.
So there goes that theory.
Oh, listen. Doc is like family.
We have to protect him.
If you notice anything strange,
let me know.
The only thing strange
is you accusing an innocent guy of fraud.
Honey, my instincts
about people are never wrong.
You mark my words.
This kid's up to something.
[light pensive music playing]
[cell phone ringing]
- Hi, Hope.
- I'm making hermit cookies
and I can't remember
how many eggs I'm supposed to use.
- And how would I know?
- You've seen me make them a million times.
I've eaten them plenty, but I don't think
I've watched you make them.
I knew you'd be no help. I'll text Connie.
Don't. I'll Google it for you.
Why would you do that?
Connie, once she starts texting
- She won't stop.
- [chuckles]
So, um, why did you leave so early
this morning?
Oh, I had some work I had to catch up on.
Are you okay on your own for a few hours?
- I want you to think of me as a cat.
- What does that mean?
It means
I have zero interest in socialization.
All I need is access to food, water
and the human version of a litter box.
Can I scratch behind your ears?
- Not unless I'm in the mood.
- That's very cat-like.
- I need to talk to you tonight.
- Can't you tell me now?
No, I don't wanna talk
about it on the phone.
Good Lord, you're frustrating.
[knocking on door]
That sounds like
there's somebody at the door.
It's like Grand Central Station over here.
Would you answer the door, please?
Connie had Marge drop off groceries
and I don't want them left out.
but I'm not inviting anybody inside. Bye.
[light pensive music playing]
Can I come in?
- Hey.
- [Denny] Hi.
- Can I get a chocolate donut?
- Sure. Anything else?
Wondering if you wanted
to go to a movie tonight. Thanks.
- The Light Road is showing Pulp Fiction.
- I love that movie, but I'm filling in
- at the bar and won't get off till 9:00.
- Last showing starts at 10:00.
- Oh, then count me in.
- Text me when you're done with work.
Remember what I said.
[Tara] I know the deer got
into your giant Darwins.
Oh, so thoughtful.
- Thank you.
- Some of my best memories
are of helping you
and my mom in the garden.
You're a natural. Just like Lilly.
- I wanted to say sorry about yesterday.
- You have nothing to be sorry for.
I'm the one who owes you an apology.
I was caught off guard.
You look just like Lilly
when she was your age.
Every time I look at you, I [gasps]
I miss her so much.
I miss her too.
- I hope you'll forgive me.
- Of course I do.
I wish I could forgive myself.
For being away
during those last few weeks.
There is nothing that you could have done
to keep her from leaving us.
I didn't get to say goodbye.
Mom knew how much you loved her.
That's all that she needed.
I know how you feel.
You do?
When my dad died,
I hadn't spoken to him in like a month.
And not for any good reason,
just because I was busy.
Not being able to say goodbye still hurts.
You're the closest thing I have to my mom.
I can't lose you both.
It's been so hard not having her around,
and I know you've been through a lot.
But I really need you, Hope.
Oh, honey, I'm right here.
[Mel] I want you to continue icing it
for the rest of today,
- and then take it easy for about a week.
- All right. And can you write me a note?
- Otherwise, Jo Ellen won't believe me.
- [laughs]
And let's just say
that I can't run the vacuum.
For like two weeks. Is that good enough?
You're an angel sent from heaven.
- Thanks, Nick.
- Thanks.
Nick just left.
Thanks for seeing him. How's his wrist?
Oh, it was just a light sprain.
He did say something interesting, though.
Um He said that
your grandson is visiting?
Oh. [chuckles]
He did, did he?
Well, yes, it is true.
Oh. Sorry,
I didn't know that you had any children.
I didn't either.
And neither does Hope.
Given the speed
with which news travels around here,
that could be a problem.
If it was a secret, how did Nick find out?
It's not exactly a secret.
I introduced Denny to Lizzie.
But Connie overheard.
Right, so she told Jo Ellen,
who told Nick.
You hit the nail on the head.
You better tell Hope fast
if you want her to hear it from you first.
Well, I'm gonna try tonight. I just
It's hard to find the right time.
Plus, I
I have been processing the fact
that I had a son.
[emotional music playing]
Yeah, he died about a month ago
from a heart attack.
Oh, Doc, I am so sorry.
I gained a son and then I lost him
in the blink of an eye.
And it's silly
because I'm missing something I never had.
No, that's not silly.
You know, he became a part of you
the second you knew he existed.
I didn't know him. I
I think that it's the, you know,
what could have been
that makes it so hard.
What could have been.
You know
that I had a stillborn daughter, right?
I never got to look at her eyes.
I never got to hear her voice, but I
Oh, I miss her every single day.
I think there's some things
that you just never get over.
And losing a child is one of them.
And then
delivering Daisy
and having to see her parents' heartache,
it just brought everything back.
I'm sorry.
Thank you.
I can't imagine
how hard that must have been for you.
Grief doesn't ever get lighter.
We just get used to carrying the weight.
You lost a lot of people that you love.
- Too many.
- Listen, personal issues are not my forte,
but I am around if you need to talk.
Thank you, Doc. That's really sweet.
Wait. I'm supposed to be comforting you,
not the other way around. Sorry.
Friends don't keep score.
Julia. Preacher.
I took your aikido class.
Yes, of course.
And I've figured out where I've seen you.
I've eaten at Jack's bar.
Oh, and how was it?
It was delicious.
Have you been here before?
Oh, yeah, this is where I get a lot
of my perishables for the bar.
Ah. It is my first time.
I've decided to eat more local and organic
and I don't know where to start.
I take it the artichokes are good?
Oh yeah, yeah,
my artichoke dip is a favorite at the bar.
Ah. Hey, what do you call a conversation
between two artichokes?
- Uh
- A heart-to-heart.
- [laughing]
- Oh, wow.
Oh, I can't believe I said that out loud.
- No, it was cute.
- No, it wasn't.
I love a good arti-joke.
- Oh
- [laughing]
So where do you want to start?
Fruits? Vegetables?
- They have wine?
- Oh, and a tasty one.
Ooh. Then why are we still standing here?
- Follow me.
- Okay.
[Anne] Thanks.
- Hey. Thanks for seeing me.
- Hey.
Oh, well, you know, if it wasn't for you,
I would have failed civil procedure.
- Wilkinson was a real prick.
- He was. Have a seat.
So how do you like being an agent?
- It suits me.
- Yeah?
- Still working in the DA's office?
- I took a job at a small law firm
- in Humboldt County.
- Uh-huh. So that's why you're here.
Sort of.
- I have a favor to ask.
- Shoot.
I need to see the Emerald Lumber file.
A friend of mine has been framed
for attempted murder
and the key to that
is somewhere in your file.
You know, the DEA poured a lot of time
and money into that raid
because we wanted convictions.
We didn't get them.
Yeah. That task force
had way too many cooks in the kitchen.
- Yeah.
- DEA, ATF, FBI, Humboldt sheriff?
No way to know
who tipped Calvin off in time
- for him to destroy that evidence.
- So if you know all this,
- why do you need the file?
- I need your notes.
- So I can see that case through your eyes.
- Brie, no. I could lose my job here.
An innocent man
could end up serving life in prison.
Daniel Brady? That's the friend
you're trying to protect, right?
[pensive music playing]
God, I just hope
you know what you're doing, Brie.
[computer beeps]
Twenty-four hours.
- And don't show it to another soul.
- Thank you.
I owe you one.
Yeah, you do.
You're doing the right thing.
- Hey! What are you doing here?
- Preacher asked me to fill in for Hannah.
So how are you?
Fine. What do you need me to do?
If you wanna serve, I can bus. I know
how much dirty dishes gross you out.
Nothing more disgusting.
- Well, what about a blobfish?
- Let's not start naming gross things.
Hey, so I've been memorizing my lines
for the Romeo and Juliet scene.
The fair's coming up and I was wondering
if you want to get together to practice.
Oh. Um
I don't think we should.
- I thought you were into performing.
- I was, but I changed my mind.
Lizzie, I I know I hurt you
and I'm really sorry,
and I swear I'll never lie to you again.
- I don't feel like it.
- Why won't you give me a second chance?
Because I trusted you
and you lied to me, over and over.
I said I'm sorry. What else can I do?
Maybe someday I'll forgive you,
but not right now.
Yes, from scratch. I'm going to pick up
the blueberries and brown sugar.
I'm happy to get stuff from Connie's.
- It's okay, babe. I got it.
- As long as you're up for it.
I am.
Please just don't take too long.
I don't know this guy.
That's literally the point,
is to get to know him.
Jack, I'm making a crumble
and a human being simultaneously.
- You can survive one barbecue.
- I have no comeback for that.
That was the point.
I love you. I'll see you.
Wow. Five brothers.
Mm-hm. And I'm the youngest.
No wonder you got into martial arts.
It was less about defense
and more about wanting to be included.
They didn't want their weakling sister
ruining the games.
- [chuckles] So did it work?
- Soon as I learned
to drop my oldest brother Freddy,
they let me hang out.
[laughs] Good for you.
Your other job,
you are a recruiter, right?
I specialize in medical staffing.
- That sounds interesting.
- It is. It's like a puzzle.
Somewhere there's a piece missing,
it is my job to find it.
- I used to love doing puzzles.
- Used to?
Yeah, once I finished active duty, it took
me a while to get back into normal life.
So before I found a job,
I would do puzzles.
To keep myself busy.
I read that a lot of veterans feel
out of place when they come home.
Well, one day,
you are fighting in a war zone.
A few days later,
you're standing in line buying groceries.
It's surreal.
Were you bitter, fighting in a war?
No, I chose to enlist.
When I came back from Iraq in one piece,
I chose to live
with gratitude instead of anger.
That's beautiful.
Gratitude is one
of the basic tenets of aikido.
Yes, and one of the reasons
I decided to try it.
- When are you coming back to class?
- I don't know.
I don't know. I, um
I feel like the BFG.
Big Friendly Giant.
The Roald Dahl character? Funny.
[both chuckle]
Well, I do offer private lessons.
- Is that so?
- Mm-hm.
I would give you
the friends-and-family rate.
That is quite the offer.
- I'd be a fool to refuse.
- And you are definitely no fool.
Cheers to that.
[man] Dan Brady?
Yeah, who are you?
Bondsman. Congratulations, you made bail.
- What? How?
- Note the conditions of release.
Number one, surrender your passport.
Two, don't leave the state.
Doesn't say who posted my bail.
As long as the check clears, I don't care.
So that's it? I'm free to go?
Don't screw me. If you're a no-show,
I'll come after you.
Relax. I'll be there.
[pensive music playing]
[man on PA] Dr. Chang, Cardiology.
Dr. Chang, Cardiology.
Hey, are you okay?
find his car.
Okay, who's Carl?
- I am.
- Okay.
Carl, my name is Mel.
Are you here by yourself?
I can't
find my car.
Okay, I understand that. Why don't we?
Why don't we go to this bench here?
I can help you try to find your car. Okay?
Carl, you have anyone that I can call?
I live alone.
Okay. Do you have any relatives close by?
I have
- a daughter.
- Okay.
Oh. Uh-oh.
Okay, okay, all right. Carl?
- Carl!
- [woman] Is he okay?
[dispatcher] 911, what's your emergency?
I need paramedics
at Swinton's Food Market in Clear River.
I have an elderly man
unconscious and unresponsive.
Understood. Nearest unit
is 15 minutes out, ma'am.
I've lost his pulse,
I'm starting chest compressions.
So you want a beer?
- Wine? I got whiskey.
- Water would be great.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
How long have you lived in Virgin River?
Oh Seven years.
- And before that?
- Sacramento.
- Oh, you go to Davis?
- No.
- Yeah. I did my undergrad at Berkeley.
- Small world, almost went there.
- Yeah? Where did you end up?
- Mm.
The Marines.
I grew up in an ultra-liberal household.
My parents would have lost their minds
if I had enlisted.
- Mine weren't thrilled.
- Yeah.
Who could blame them?
Sending kids overseas to fight for oil.
Yeah, I mean, that's a bit
of an oversimplification.
A little cynical, don't you think?
[light pensive music playing]
I guess we'll have
to agree to disagree on that one.
Hey, look, I mean no disrespect.
- Hey.
- No, I totally admire people
willing to put their lives in danger
for something they believe in.
Enlisted folks do that
every single day, you know?
Yeah. Yeah, exactly.
Hey. Sorry I'm late.
Is Cameron here?
Yeah, he's inside.
- He's mashing potatoes.
- Oh.
- Good. Nice job with the table.
- Thank you.
Wanna know what I've learned
about me and Cameron?
- What?
- Him and I have nothing in common.
- I'm sure that's not true.
- I swear I tried, okay?
- I did.
- Really?
You okay? You were gone a while.
It's just this older man
had an episode outside the store,
and I ended up having to give him CPR.
I waited for them to get him
into the ambulance, and it was sad.
He was all alone,
he didn't have anyone to call.
- You look like you need a hug.
- Yeah.
- [Mel] Hey.
- You made it.
Sorry I'm late, there was
an emergency at the grocery store.
Is everybody okay?
The medical response was fast,
so I think he's gonna be fine.
But, um, I forgot all the stuff
to make the crumble.
Oh. You chose to save a life
instead of making us dessert.
Selfish. Let me put those on the grill,
you guys can chat.
I got it. You're the guest, remember?
I'll grab some lemonade.
Does anybody want anything?
You guys talk, I'll get that for you.
I'll meet you out there.
[pensive music playing]
[cell phone rings]
Hey, Mom.
[Mel] So, what was your last job?
My last job was at a group practice
in downtown San Diego.
- Not enough doctors to meet the demand.
- Yeah, let me guess.
Back-to-back patients.
No time for paperwork.
- Sounds like you have experience.
- [chuckles] Yeah.
Well, I worked in an ER
and the burnout rate was like almost 50%.
Yeah, that makes sense.
That's a lot of what I love
about this clinic,
not feeling like you're being rushed.
Really? I thought
you loved the paper charts.
Crazy. I cannot believe
they haven't been digitized yet.
Oh, my God, trust me.
I tried, but Doc freaked out on me.
[both laugh]
Trying to explain the cloud
to Doc is like
- Teaching a frog how to ride a bicycle.
- Exactly. It's
- Hey.
- Thank you, babe.
Well, why don't we go to him
together and make our case?
Okay. Well, I mean, we could try,
but he's pretty set in his ways.
- I have faith in us.
- Okay.
A couple of my patients were talking
about the Overview Trail Run
- in, what is it, Grace Valley?
- [Mel] Mm.
- Heard of it? Yeah?
- [Jack] Mm-hm.
I've wanted to go.
I just haven't made it there.
I heard the view is breathtaking.
Want to go?
The trail is like eight miles long,
good to go with other people.
You saying I'd have to carry you down?
No, I'd pass out and you'd call for help.
Oh, right, you're really selling this run.
That's why I became a doctor
and not a salesman.
Mm-hm. Good choice.
Trail sounds fun, for you.
- Not a runner?
- [Jack] Mm-mm.
No, not my thing.
Find it a little repetitive,
I always start out
and I get bored and end up quitting.
- I like repetition, I find it soothing.
- I know.
I like it. You get into this groove
and lose yourself.
I like knowing where I am.
- What do you think, you wanna go?
- As long as you don't pass out, I'm in.
Excellent. And in other good news
- The steaks are ready.
- [Mel] Finally.
- Shall we eat?
- [Mel] I'm starving. Yes, please.
[pensive music playing]
Not too bad tonight.
Except for the lady
who kept sending her food back.
When she refused to pay,
I thought you were gonna deck her.
People who are rude to servers
should not be allowed in restaurants.
[cell phone chimes]
Hey, are you okay
to help Preacher close up? I gotta go.
Sure. What, got a hot date?
- So you were engaged?
- Yeah, yeah.
We broke it off a few months ago.
- Bummer.
- It was bound to happen.
We were just from two different worlds.
She grew up in a big family,
six brothers and sisters
outside of Philly
I would think that seeing the world
from someone else's point of view
would make the relationship
more interesting.
For some people, but for us, it meant
that we were just never on the same page.
I'd wanna go out for a meal,
she'd wanna cook,
or she wants to watch movies
and I wanna go rock climbing.
I don't know
if that sounds like a deal breaker.
They're not,
it's just when that starts piling up,
you realize that you have
totally different interests and values.
To a point where we couldn't agree
on what kind of eggs to buy.
Oh, like the time I brought home
cage-free instead of free-range.
I had to explain to you that
free-range means they get to go outside.
- Well, I know that now.
- [Cameron] Yeah, you see?
I mean, could you imagine
not agreeing on anything?
Where you wanna live.
Your finances. How many kids you want.
It's exhausting.
Well, at least you figured out
your differences before you got married.
[Cameron] And for that, I am grateful,
because once you have kids,
you're tied to that person,
whether on the same page or not.
They might taste terrible.
Oh, how enticing.
Actually, they're delicious.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
[sighs] So
what did you wanna tell me?
I'm just worried that it might upset you.
Vernon, you're driving me crazy.
- Out with it already.
- Okay.
I have
a grandson.
- What?
- [Vernon chuckles]
A woman I dated in college
had a baby and never told me,
and that baby had a son
and his name is Denny Cutler.
Where does he live?
In Seattle.
And how did you find this out?
Denny came to Virgin River a few days ago
and he introduced himself.
He's here and you're just telling me now?
Yes, I was nervous
because he's from another relationship.
Are you currently
in a relationship with that woman?
- No, of course not.
- Then it's in the past.
I think it's amazing.
You do?
Neither of us had children,
or so I thought, and
there have been times I've regretted it.
I never knew that.
Well, not all the time.
But we have so much,
would've been nice to share it
with a daughter or son and their children.
To have had a house filled with family,
especially on Christmas or Thanksgiving.
- [Vernon chuckles]
- Is that nuts?
No, no. Not at all.
I've often thought the same thing.
This could be our second chance.
You are really okay with this?
It's a blessing.
I am so happy to hear you say that,
because I feel exactly the same way.
Oh, my gosh.
Thank you so much for tonight.
You're a very gracious non-host.
Happy to accommodate.
So, what'd you think of him?
Well, he doesn't know how to cook steak.
But he seems okay.
He's definitely into you.
What? No, he's not.
Oh, come on.
Oh, my gosh, Jack.
He's a social guy
and he's lonely here. What?
Okay. That's fine.
As long as he keeps things
strictly professional.
Wait a minute. Wait a minute.
- Do you ever think that I would ch?
- No. I I'm not talking about you.
- I trust you implicitly.
- Okay.
So where's that coming from?
My mom called
while I was getting your lemonade.
What did she say?
Turns out you were right.
The divorce wasn't because of my dad.
She's in love with her art teacher.
- Seriously?
- Yep.
How do you feel about that?
Honestly, I don't know.
I never thought in a million years
that she'd even look at another guy.
- How did she sound?
- Excited.
It was weird. You know, it was like
talking to a complete stranger.
[cell phone buzzing]
[Mel] It's the hospital.
Excuse me?
[knocking on door]
- Who is it?
- [Brie] It's me.
- Hey.
- I heard you made bail.
I don't know how, but yeah.
- Well, could I come in?
- Brie.
I'm sorry, but it's not a great time.
Why not?
- Brie, I
- Hey.
I just need to know you're okay.
What if I'm not?
I wanna fix it.
