The Long Goodbye

1
So, what I'm asking is, Mel Monroe
will you marry me?
Of course I'll marry you. Yes.
- You took your time to answer.
- Sorry.
I'm sorry.
Oh, wait, wait. We gotta do this.
Oh, okay.
It's so pretty.
I belong with you
You belong with me ♪
You're my sweetheart ♪
I belong with you
You belong with me ♪
You're my sweetheart ♪
I belong with you
You belong with me ♪
You're my sweetheart ♪
I belong with you
You belong with me ♪
You're my sweetheart ♪
Ho ♪
Ho, hey ♪
Ho ♪
Ho, hey ♪
That looks good on you.
It's beautiful.
I still can't believe you got us a suite.
I think the occasion calls
for something more extravagant than
the Airstream.
Hmm.
Well, I'm feeling
very spoiled. Thank you.
Aw.
Oh, come on.
Is it work?
Um
No, it's, uh
the lab results from our paternity test.
Well, that was only like two days ago.
I know, she put a rush on it.
So, what do you wanna do?
What are my options?
Well, we can open it now
- or we can wait till we get home.
- Or next year.
- It's not
- Do you want me to just delete it?
No, I'm kidding.
Unless you want to.
No. No.
- What?
- It's just, I've
been thinking about this moment
ever since I got pregnant,
and now that we're finally here, I
- What if it's not?
- Hey, if it's not
we will be upset and disappointed.
- Sure.
- Mm-hm.
We always knew that was a possibility
from the beginning, right?
So we'll deal. We'll move on
and we will focus on starting our family.
I don't care what that e-mail says.
I love you.
And I'm gonna love our baby so much.
I love you too.
I'm sorry.
Why?
We wouldn't be in this position
if it wasn't for me.
Oh, hey, no.
This is not your fault.
I have never thought that. I never will.
- If I hadn't gone to the clinic
- If I hadn't broken up with you
Listen, we are not here
because of you, all right?
We're here because of us.
We might not be perfect, but
we are together.
That's the only thing that matters,
you and me.
Look, we got this, okay?
Come on.
Okay.
Okay. All right.
"Not excluded."
Not excluded?
It means you're the father.
What?
It means that you're the father.
And we're having a girl.
- Oh, holy crap.
- Yeah.
- We're having a little girl?
- Yeah.
Oh, I'm so happy right now.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I didn't hear you get up.
Yeah, that's 'cause
you were out like a light.
What's all this?
Well, decided you deserved better
than an empty fridge.
So did you get a chance
to look over the pamphlet Mel gave me?
Brady, you don't have to worry about me.
I'm okay.
I want you to be honest with me.
If you're hurting, I
I wanna know about it so I can help.
Yeah, I just don't want everything
to be about that.
If I touch you and you're not into it
Brady, stop, okay?
I don't want you
to walk around on eggshells.
I want you to be like you were before.
- I don't know
- If something's going on with me
I will tell you, okay?
Got it.
Be honest with your feelings too.
- Yeah?
- Mm-hm.
That right?
What?
Always negotiating.
That's 'cause I'm good at it.
Yeah, you are.
- I love you.
- I love you.
Yeah.
All I am saying is that I would be happy
to find an aide for you.
I'm perfectly capable of hiring
my own sitter, thank you very much.
Besides, I'm the one who has
to spend time with this person,
so I should be the one
who makes the decision.
I was just gonna set up some interviews.
Good gravy, we're not hiring a CEO.
Then what do you have in mind?
I was thinking about asking Lizzie.
She did a good job with my plants,
and they're much
more temperamental than I am.
That's very funny.
Lizzie is a very good idea.
- It was Chuck's idea.
- And who's Chuck?
My one good brain cell.
I'll get it.
Hello?
Hold, please.
Denny, it's for you.
Yeah, he'll be here in one second.
Hello?
Oh, okay.
Yeah, I can do that.
Got it. Thanks. Bye.
The doctor said my test results confirmed
I was just dehydrated.
So I'm supposed
to increase my fluid intake.
Well, that seems easy enough.
Totally not a big deal.
Yeah, but you do need to start
taking better care of yourself.
Definitely.
Look
Denny, I'm very concerned about you.
I appreciate that.
But I have to do this my way.
What if you had been driving
when you passed out,
or on a hike, you could have
fallen down, hit your head on a rock.
I could get hit by a bus.
I can't worry about every little thing.
But there are things
you could be doing and should be doing.
Vernon, aren't you overreacting?
Yes, probably.
Come on, come help me.
He still sleeping?
Mm-hm. Poor little lamb.
Did he say anything last night?
He doesn't understand
why Paige isn't back.
- What'd you tell him?
- That she had to fly to Florida for work.
I'm heading back to the cabin.
Hopefully they'll turn up there today.
Preacher, leave this with the sheriff.
It's too dangerous.
No. I'm going.
And when he wakes up, can you take him
back to your house until I get home?
Of course I can.
Listen, I appreciate
everything you've done.
Oh.
Just Just remember
No one will know he's here.
No one.
And you promise me you'll be careful too.
I will.
You tell Christopher
I'll be home as soon as I can.
- I will.
- Okay.
- Hey.
- Oh, hey, Doc.
- Hey.
- Hey, I'm sorry I'm late.
Oh, don't worry about it.
How was your mini getaway?
Oh, actually, Jack surprised me.
Oh, oh!
- Oh, he did good.
- Yeah.
- Congratulations.
- Aw, thank you.
Now, I imagine this news is not a secret?
I feel like the ring
kind of gives it away.
- Precisely.
- Yeah.
Well, being engaged is a very special time
and I hope that you're able to enjoy it.
Thank you.
So how are things going around here?
Oh, they have been
a little rocky, actually.
Cameron has decided to resign.
- What?
- He gave two weeks' notice.
- Came out of nowhere.
- Ugh.
No, no, this is because of me.
When we went to lunch, he said
he didn't think Jack was good for me,
and, you know, things got heated.
That is unfortunate.
I know. You know what? I'll talk to him.
Maybe I can get him to change his mind.
I wouldn't get your hopes up.
He seemed pretty resolved.
Hello?
Hello?
Oh, hi.
Sorry.
Muriel keeps texting me questions
about Ricky's send-off.
We're meeting outside
Connie's at 3:00, right?
Yeah, it's not that hard.
She wants to know what to wear.
Anyway, what would you like?
Twenty-five hours a week,
Monday through Friday, 20 bucks an hour.
Sorry, I don't know
what you're talking about.
I need to hire an aide,
and you did a great job with my plants,
so the job's yours.
Oh. Wow.
So I'd be working at your house?
That's where I am most of the time.
You'd help me grocery shop,
take me to my appointments,
keep track of my medication.
You're not interested.
No, I am, but
Denny and I kind of had a falling-out,
so it might be awkward.
Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know.
It's okay. But can I think about it?
Of course, you just let me know.
Hey. How are you?
- I thought you were gone for a few days.
- Yeah, I was, but I just got back.
Nice ring.
Oh. Yeah, that's where I was.
It was a total surprise.
Congratulations.
I'm very happy for you guys.
Thanks.
Listen, I talked to Doc,
and he said that you gave notice?
Yeah. I'm gonna go back to San Diego.
- Cameron
- We don't need to talk about it.
I'm gonna be gone in a few weeks,
and we can just
- leave it at that.
- I'm sorry for the way I reacted.
No, no, no. I was out of line.
You didn't ask for my opinion.
I know, but you thought
you were protecting a friend,
and honestly, I respect that.
I can appreciate you trying to make me
feel better, but sometimes things
can't be unsaid.
It doesn't have to be a big deal.
It is a big deal to me.
I feel like an idiot,
and you've obviously made your decision,
and I can't just all of a sudden
pretend to be supportive.
We don't have to talk
about our personal lives.
I'd still have a front-row seat.
I'm sorry.
In case you need a snack.
Thanks, Grandma.
Jack called. He'll be right on time.
Okay. Do you want me to get your coat?
Actually, I was thinking I'd stay behind.
Oh.
- Do you have your bus ticket?
- Yeah, it's in my backpack.
What about money?
I have 60 bucks and the credit card
you gave me for emergencies.
- Let me see what I have in my wallet.
- No, you don't have to do that.
Oh, here we go.
Buy yourself one of those fancy coffees
when you get to San Diego.
I love you so much.
I love you too.
Okay, so I want you to start
doing those exercises
the physical therapist gave you.
Why? It's not like
I'm gonna start taking aerobics.
It would be nice not to have
to walk with crutches, wouldn't it?
They're a conversation starter
with the ladies.
I don't think you need
any help in that department.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome, Charlie.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- What are you doing here?
- I came by to see the ring.
- Oh.
- Oh, it's gorgeous.
- I did not think he had that in him.
- Yeah.
- It's what I would have picked.
- Have you talked about a date?
No. I think we're gonna enjoy
being engaged for a while.
Okay, I get that. I like it.
- You deserve it.
- Yeah.
Excuse me.
- Yeah.
- What's up with him?
I don't know.
- Yeah, you do.
- I do know. Come outside.
So
Cameron has decided
to move back to San Diego.
Why?
Well, he told me that he doesn't think
that Jack is the right guy
for me and I got upset.
Wow. Maybe him going back is a good thing,
'cause this office is too small
to be that uncomfortable.
Yeah, it
It's not really that simple, though.
Um
I know Jack told you
that I'm pregnant, right?
He told me not to say anything,
but I am so happy for you guys.
Thank you. So am I. Um
But the So the problem is
Doc is getting older.
And if I can't come to work
because of the pregnancy,
or after the baby's born,
then he's gonna be here alone.
- He's gonna be overwhelmed.
- And have you tried talking to Cameron?
- Yeah. It didn't go well.
- So then there's nothing else you can do.
Hey, ladies.
- Aw. You got me lunch.
- Aw, no!
But I brought you a grilled chicken
focaccia and a side salad.
Aw, thank you, honey, that was very sweet.
Sorry, kid,
I didn't know you were gonna be here.
Oh, no. I just came by to see the ring,
and I'm impressed.
Oh, you keep underestimating me.
Well, my estimations
are based on experience, so
Oh!
I need to go. See you guys later.
Congratulations again.
- Bye.
- Thanks.
Hello. You came all the way
down here just to give me lunch?
Well, that and Nick came by the bar,
and he wants to take you and I out
to dinner tonight
with Jo Ellen to celebrate.
Oh, that's sweet.
- Um, can we do it another night?
- Why? I don't wanna let him down.
Yeah. I know.
I'm having a tough day at work.
How come?
Cameron is quitting.
Hmm.
What, he get another job?
No.
- So why's he going?
- If I tell you, you're gonna be offended.
Babe.
We're getting married
and we're starting a family.
I couldn't care less
what anybody else says or does.
- So, what happened?
- Ugh.
Cameron said he thinks you're unreliable.
What, because I didn't show up
to the wedding?
Yeah. And I told him he was wrong,
and now he feels uncomfortable
working together.
I guess he's entitled to his opinion.
Okay, fine.
I'll cancel dinner, don't worry.
Oh, honey. No, don't do that.
No, it's okay. I'll be fine. I don't
wanna disappoint Nick and Jo Ellen.
- You sure?
- Yeah.
You're the most compassionate
human being that I've ever met.
- Do you know that?
- Oh, please.
If I didn't have to go pick up Ricky,
I would steal you away.
Would you?
- Well, you can steal me another time.
- Oh, I'm gonna.
- I'll see you at Connie's.
- Okay.
- I love you.
- Love you too.
- What's he doing here?
- No idea, but he ain't staying.
Why don't you go in the house
and grab a beer, huh?
What now?
You're a free man.
- What?
- Turns out Deputy Howard
- was helping Calvin launder money.
- How did you figure that out?
Brie.
She, uh
She got a lead from a DEA friend of hers
and followed the money,
which led to an address
receiving checks made to cash.
I went to check it out and when
I got there, Howard was at the house.
Pulled a gun on me, but I got
the jump on him and cuffed him.
It's a riveting story,
but what's that got to do with me?
He made a deal.
He admitted to planting
the gun in your truck.
Listen, I'm really sorry, Brady, I
I was just following the evidence.
That it?
Case closed?
Yeah, the DEA officially
dropped the charges, filed the paperwork.
You are in the clear.
I figured you'd want to tell Brie.
Hey, Preach, it's me.
I haven't heard from you, man.
I hope everything's okay.
Just give me a call back.
I'll call you
when I get to the MCRD, okay?
- Lydie, you're not coming?
- No, we've said our goodbyes.
But thank you
for taking him to the station.
Pleasure.
So you looking forward
to wearing shorts in December?
What?
San Diego winters
are a heck of a lot warmer than up here.
Actually, I'm
thinking more about what
I'm leaving behind than where I'm going.
You worried about Lydie?
Yeah.
But not just her.
Yeah, it's tough leaving someone
you love behind.
Sometimes a little distance
can make someone realize
what they're missing.
- Aren't we supposed to be on the highway?
- Yeah, we got a little detour.
Wait, is this all for me?
It's your name on the signs.
By the way
Lizzie organized all of this.
All right! Oh, my God.
Wow! This is so
- Hey.
- Let's go, Ricky!
Hey.
- I'll miss you.
- Miss you too.
- Come here.
- Look at ours first.
Yours is the best one.
Oh, that's adorable.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Didn't I just see you?
- Are you bored already?
No, never.
- Oh, do you mind if I take this?
- Yeah, go ahead.
Hey, Char.
Hey, hey, hey, calm down, take a breath.
It's amazing. It's gorgeous.
Look, I'm sure it's probably
just a business dinner.
Have you had a chance to ask him?
Okay, well, I gotta get Ricky
to the bus station,
but I'll call you on my way back.
Okay. Well, in the meantime,
just try to stay calm.
Everything's gonna be fine, okay?
Okay.
Hey. Is everything okay?
Yeah, Charmaine's freaked out
because she found a hotel bar charge
on Todd's credit card.
Oh, well, that doesn't mean
he's cheating on her.
I know, but she's sensitive about that.
I don't think
she has anyone else to talk to.
Oh. That must be such
a lonely place to be in.
Yeah. I feel bad for her.
Well, you're being a good friend.
- Well, you'd do the same.
- Yeah.
Okay, bye, guys.
Hi.
So I guess this is it, huh?
Yeah. I guess so.
Thank you for organizing all this.
It was It was amazing.
Well, I couldn't let you leave
without making a scene.
Hmm.
Well
See you later, then.
Be careful, dummy.
Never have I seen a place ♪
That reminds me of your face ♪

I'm so proud of you.
Yeah. Thanks. I'm just
really stressed out.
I feel like a coward.
You're preparing for battle.
Any sane person would feel the same way.
- Did you?
- Heck yeah.
Big time.
But I never let fear
stop me from living my life.
Listen, Ricky
I believe in you.
Okay?
And so does everyone else in town,
so if you ever need anything,
we're here for you, always.
Thanks, Jack.

I can't see anything.
Look in this one, then.
Lydie? I used my key.
What are you all doing here?
We were worried.
Why didn't you go with Jack
and Ricky to the bus station?
I have things to do around here.
Lydie. We know that's not the reason.
I just can't stop crying,
and if Ricky had seen me like this,
he never would've gotten on the bus.
This is the first time that
I have lived alone in a very long time.
And I miss him. I miss him already.
- What I am gonna do without my Ricky?
- Shh.
Whenever you get lonely, you're gonna call
one of us to come over and be with you.
- You all have lives.
- Muriel doesn't.
Hope's right, though.
We will be here for you anytime.
Day or night.
We're here for each other.
That's what we do.
Let's go.
Hey, man.
I found Vince. He's got Paige
and he's armed, so I might need a hand.
Where are you?
I sent coordinates to a cabin
in Trinity County. I need you here, quick.
But no backup.
Just you.
Preacher, whatever you're thinking, don't.
I'm in Eureka, but I'll get there.
I'm on the perimeter,
east side of the front door.
Now, you won't see me, but I'll see you.
And, Mike, listen.
If he hears you,
he may panic and pull the trigger.
I'll get it.
Hey. Is Doc home?
- Yeah, come in.
- Thanks.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I'm gonna make some hot chocolate.
Want some?
- I'm okay. Thank you.
- I'll take a cup. Thanks.
Uh, can I talk to you for a sec?
Sure. Sure. Um
Actually, I wanted to ask you
something, but you go first.
Oh, no, that's okay. You go first.
It is about Hope.
As you know, her neurologist
wants her to hire a home health aide,
and she offered the job to Lizzie.
Oh, that's a good idea.
Yeah, except I don't think
it's gonna work out.
Apparently, Lizzie and Denny
had a falling-out.
And Lizzie is
She said she would consider the position,
but Hope doesn't think
she's gonna take it.
- Have you talked to Denny about it?
- No.
Hope and I, we both agreed,
we don't wanna pressure him.
And Hope is
- She's too proud to ask her friends.
- Mm-hm.
So I just wondered
if you had some suggestions.
Well, hospitals usually have referrals,
but you know what, I'm happy to fill in
until you find somebody permanent.
Well, that is mighty generous of you.
Let me talk to Hope about that.
Yeah, sure.
So, what'd you wanna speak to me about?
Uh, well, you were right.
Cameron is set on leaving.
We will be just fine without him.
You know what?
I know that you're well aware
but as a high-risk pregnancy,
I could end up on bedrest.
The baby could come early.
We will cross that bridge
when we come to it.
I know, but by the time that happens,
you'll end up doing all the work.
Which, if I may remind you,
I was happily doing before you arrived.
I know that, but you have to admit
that it's been a lot easier
with two doctors.
I mean, you know, you're able
to spend more time with Hope and Denny,
and they both really need you.
What are you telling me?
Maybe if I leave, then Cameron will stay
and you won't have to hire a replacement.
What do you mean, if you leave?
Look, I only wanna do what's best for you.
So I've decided to resign.
That looks really good.
Go head upstairs.
- Hey. Can we talk?
- I'm kind of busy right now.
Please.
- What's up?
- I wanted to ask you about Hope.
She offered you a job
and you said you needed to think about it.
- Yeah.
- Are you hesitating 'cause of me?
I can't be around you.
I feel stupid for wanting more.
Lizzie, my reason for not wanting to
get involved has nothing to do with you.
And I don't believe you. Sorry.
No, I don't wanna hurt you.
Okay? That's the whole point
of all of this.
If it's a big deal to Hope,
I'll take the job.
But I think you've been stringing me along
and you're not gonna change my mind.
Lizzie.
The reason I can't be
in a relationship is because
I don't have a future.
I have Huntington's disease
which is terminal.
What can I get for you?
We'd like to start off
with your nicest bottle of champagne.
- We're celebrating an engagement.
- Certainly. Be right back.
So do you know
what kind of wedding you'll be having?
Um, you know what,
we haven't talked about that yet.
I wouldn't mind it feeling like a party.
It'll be a party here in a minute.
My sister's in town,
and she's gotta leave a day early,
so I invited her to join us.
I hope you guys don't mind.
Sure. The more the merrier, right?
Oh, here she is.
Jack, Mel, this is my sister,
Melissa Montgomery.
Hello.
- Jack Sheridan.
- Nice to meet you.
- Good to meet you.
- Hi there. Mel.
Sorry. I didn't mean to scare you.
What are you doing here?
Been trying to reach you.
- Why?
- Let's just
- No, there's nothing to say.
- Hey
Don't!
I'm not trying to cause problems.
I just need you to sign something.
You want me to sign
a nondisclosure agreement?
It protects both of us.
Says we agree not to discuss
our relationship with a third party.
I'm not signing anything.
Why are you being such a bitch?
Say that again.
Sign it and I'll leave you alone,
you'll never have to see me again.
All you care about is yourself.
You know, I quit my job.
I had to move out of town.
I lost
so much.
But nothing changed for you, did it?
Look, I'm sorry
if I did something to upset you.
Upset me?
You raped me.
And you're the one
who should have suffered.
But you know what,
for all the other women in your life
I can't let that stand.
What's that mean?
I'm gonna do
what I wish I had done that night.
I'm gonna file a police report
and I'm gonna press charges.
Well, good luck with that.
No one's gonna believe you.
Yeah. Well, we'll see about that.
But if I were you, I would lawyer up.
Asshole.
Mel, you haven't touched a drop.
You know what,
it's kind of hard on my stomach.
That or you're pregnant.
Are you?
Um
- Yes, we are.
- Yeah.
Oh!
- That is so good!
- Wow, then double congratulations.
Thanks. We just found out.
We've gotta toast. Everybody grab a glass.
- Of course.
- Cheers.
Cheers!
- Congratulations, guys.
- Thank you.
Oh, that is fantastic.
Oh, shoot. Hey.
Something is wrong with Charmaine,
I gotta get over there.
- Oh, okay, I'll come with you.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Guys, I'm so sorry.
We have a little emergency.
Oh, dear.
Yeah, sorry. Thank you so much.
You're welcome.
Don't worry. I hope everything's okay.
Yeah. Thanks. Thanks.
- Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
- Good night.
- Thanks again.
- I'm so sick of your lies.
- I'm not lying, Vince.
You tell me what happened to Wes,
or I'm gonna put a bullet in your head!
- Preacher.
- Get rid of the gun.
- Let her go.
- Get rid of it.
She's gonna pay
for what she did to my brother.
She didn't mean to kill your brother.
Just like you didn't mean to shoot Jack.
Yeah, that was your fault.
I'm looking for Preacher.
He's playing poker
with the sheriff tonight,
but I'll call him,
let him know you're here.
I wouldn't.
You tell me where you buried Wes,
or I'm gonna bury your son.
She doesn't know.
Bull.
I'm the one that buried your brother.
Go!
I'll shoot you.
No, you won't.
Too far away to call ♪
Char!
Charmaine?
Char, are you in here?
Char?
Oh, my God. Charmaine.
Hey. Oh, let's sit up. Here we go.
Okay.
I can't breathe.
Try to take some breaths.
Can you call 911?
Try to breathe a little deeper.
Let me check your pulse.
Hi, a friend of mine
is having trouble breathing.
She's about five months pregnant
