When Calls The Heart (2014) s07e05 Episode Script

An Unexpected Gift

Previously on When Calls the Heart I was wondering if um I would be happy to look after Allie.
Thank you.
How's uh, how's little Jack doing? Well, there's nothing quite like unconditional love.
You deserve nothing less.
I talked to Pastor Simon, he's going to be in Union City the weekend of the wedding.
Who knew it'd be so hard to find a pastor in this town? Miss Carter, I have good news.
They've agreed to enrol you in the upcoming semester.
I'm going to Chicago in a week! This is my favourite sweater.
Let's try this one.
One arm.
Good job.
One more.
Oh, not this one, too.
None of these fit.
How did you turn into such a big boy right in front of my eyes? Still no word from him.
Who? The pastor.
Did you send a wire? Not yet.
The town council put Elizabeth in charge of finding the pastor.
Let her deal with that.
You guys have more important things to think about.
Well, it's hard to think about anything else.
If he doesn't make it to Hope Valley in time who will perform the ceremony? I will.
You will? Judge, remember? You're walking me down the aisle.
Well, perfect.
Because at the end of the aisle is exactly where I'd perform the ceremony.
I'll talk to Elizabeth.
Hey, sweetheart.
Whatcha doing? Oh, I'm working on my to-do list for tomorrow.
I have to finish Clara's dress and then I still have a million other things to do before the party tomorrow night.
Like what? Well, I need to make sure that the food is all ready, decorations, party favours, games.
Games? But this is a bridal shower.
Oh, no.
It isn't.
Times are changing.
This is a bachelorette party.
And yes, games are essential.
I see.
What do you have planned for Jesse's party? A few of the guys are getting together tomorrow at lunch to talk about it.
So a couple hours to plan an entire bachelor party? Oh, sweetie, you're adorable.
Oh, I hope Ned has everything that I ordered.
- Oh, Lee.
- Hmm? I'll need the car tomorrow so can you make sure that you leave the keys? Oh, no, no, no.
Tomorrow, I need the car tomorrow.
Lee, no.
I have to go to Benson Hills to pick up lace.
For Clara's dress.
I understand, but I have a crew on Snyder's Ridge.
I'm gonna be going back and forth all day long.
This is terrible timing.
I'm sorry.
Let's try this one.
Push, push, push.
Push, push.
Good job.
Alright, and now this arm.
Push, push, push, push, push.
I swear that just fit you.
Oh, he's awake! Hello.
Oh, this is a cute sweater.
It's he certainly fills it out.
It's tight on him, isn't it? Yes, it's too tight.
The good news is it is going to go to a good home.
I spoke with Mrs.
Anderson and she is very grateful for all the hand-me-downs.
Oh, well that's good.
I'm glad her son will be able to use them.
Little Jack is not a baby anymore.
He's just growing so fast.
A little too fast, you think? Sometimes I wish he'd just stay just like this.
I know that's silly.
No, it's not silly at all.
You know what? Why don't you keep one of these things? For you and for little Jack.
Hmm? Which one? Ohhhh! Very good choice.
Now, I was going to talk to you about the bachelorette party.
You know, we can talk about it tomorrow.
No, no, no, Rosemary.
It's fine, really.
I am in charge of all of the last-minute food instructions.
And I am in charge of the party favours and games and finishing Clara's dress if I can get a ride to Benson Hills.
Are you ok? I'll be fine.
Thank you.
I'll see you tomorrow.
And I will see you tomorrow.
Good morning.
If it isn't two of my favourite people.
Look at him.
Before you know it he's gonna be driving down Main Street.
Oh You doing some shopping? Just a few last minute arrangements for Clara's party.
It seems like you and Rosemary are putting a lot more thought into this than the men.
What what exactly are you planning? Ah, that would ruin the surprise.
And who doesn't love a good surprise? I know I do.
Good morning.
Oh, good morning, Doctor Shepherd.
Your first patient, Mrs.
Keene, should be here any minute.
Fred Baxter stopped by to cancel his appointment.
He'll try to come in on Monday.
Keene's chart is here somewhere.
Oh honestly, I don't know how you stay on schedule with such a cluttered filing system.
It's never really been my strong suit.
Ah, here it is.
Molly? Yes? What're you doing here? I'm your new receptionist.
Faith hired me before she left.
She thought you could use a hand around here.
She didn't tell you? She did not.
Well, here I am.
And here you are.
Do you always arrive this late? No, no, no, no, wait! Please, wait! Going on a trip? Well, I was, to Benson Hills to pick up parts.
One of our phone lines is down.
Ah, well there'll be another tomorrow.
You can't keep your customer waiting.
Maybe Henry can give you a lift? I would except I've got an important meeting this afternoon.
Well, I could drive myself.
If you had a car.
Yes, if I had a car.
Do you know how to drive? Sure do.
Do you have a driver's license, Mr.
Gowen? No, I do not.
Do you, Mr.
Avery? Well, no, they're not required in Hope Valley.
My driver's license.
Got it in San Francisco.
So to answer your question, yes, I know how to drive a car.
There you have it, Henry.
Well, I'll tell you what, here.
Knock yourself out.
Thank you.
I appreciate this.
It's your phone that needs fixing, isn't it? How'd you guess? I'm surprised to see you in there.
Well, I have a driver's license.
I'm not surprised to see you driving, I'm just surprised to see you in Henry's car.
He never lets many people borrow it.
Well, I'll be sure to take it slow.
- Ahhhh!!! - Fiona! I'm so sorry, Rosemary! Henry mentioned you're going to Benson Hills, is it true? Yes.
Can I tag along? I have to pick up lace for Clara's dress.
You are a real life saver.
Well, except for the fact that you almost ran me over.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate this.
You do know how to drive, don't you? Yes, I know how to drive.
That's nice.
Newton likes him.
Jack loves horses.
Well, he's spooked by some people but uh, not Jack.
Are you going somewhere? Yeah, I have a meeting.
Just some bachelor party things.
Oh, right.
I heard that Lee sort of left things to the last minute.
Yeah, you could say that.
My family picked apples from our tree this morning.
We have a basket for you.
Oh, that's so kind of you.
Thank you, Emily.
I'll bring them to school on Monday.
Can't wait.
Bye, girls.
Perks of being a teacher.
Yeah well, you do a lot for those kids.
It's nice when the parents do something nice for you.
Well, hey.
I'm a parent.
Maybe I should do something nice for you sometime.
Ok, so we've got cards, food, drinks what else? Darts? Darts.
Good one.
What else? I think we just keep it simple.
Yes Bill, normally I would agree with you but Rosemary's got so much stuff planned for Clara's party.
I really think maybe we need to you know, innovate.
- Gentlemen.
- Hey.
Sorry I'm late.
We're trying to think of ideas for Jesse's bachelor party.
Hmm Well, how about a baseball game? Have you ever been to a bachelor party? Uh No.
What-what do you do? Not much, apparently.
Come on.
We just need to use our imaginations, that's all.
We have the entire place booked for ourselves, so Well not exactly the whole place.
What do you mean, not exactly the whole place? I told the women that they could also use the saloon for their party.
Hold on.
You said that they could share the space with us? I mean, I-I don't know much about bachelor parties, but what I do know is that women aren't allowed.
Nathan, I uh No, Bill, it's fine.
Let him make his point.
Thank you.
I think the best thing to do is tell them you double booked the saloon, you're sorry but they're gonna have to find another venue for their bridal shower.
Or the men could vacate.
And it isn't a bridal shower, it's a bachelorette party.
I just have a few last minute menu items to go over with Gustave, is he around? He's in the back.
Thank you, Lucas.
Woah, woah, woah, woah.
You're giving the women half of the saloon and now Gustave as well? I figured he could cook for both parties.
I'll handle the cooking.
But I'm gonna need some help.
Why? I'll make my famous ribs.
Let's see Gustave beat that.
Just got off the phone with Faith.
She says hello.
How is she enjoying Chicago? Loving her studies but missing home.
Well, you're visiting her soon.
That should do the trick.
You have six patients waiting.
Six? I don't-I don't see anybody.
Oh, I have a system.
I send them over to the cafe and ask that they come back in 15-minute increments.
Fifteen minutes? Oh, right on time.
The doctor will be with you momentarily.
As much as I appreciate you taking the initiative here I don't like to be rushed.
Fifteen minutes isn't enough time between patients for me.
Well, not if you're gonna waste all this time chatting.
Right this way.
Look at that.
Oh, they're beautiful.
No note.
Do you think we should start looking for a new pastor? I don't know what's holding him up.
He was supposed to be here a week ago.
I'll send him a wire today.
Nice flowers.
Thank you.
Someone left them on my doorstep this morning.
How do you feel about that? I don't know how I feel about that.
I don't even know where they're from.
Really? Yes.
Well, who do you hope they're from? - Bill.
- I mean, if this were an investigation there'd really only be two suspects.
Well, luckily this is not an investigation.
I can find out.
It wouldn't be hard.
That's not necessary.
- Let you know by tonight - Bill.
Good job.
Let's have a look.
Open wide.
Say "ah".
How's your first day on the job? Oh, fine.
Who's watching the telephone? Oh, it's been slow today.
Ned can handle it.
Besides, it's not every day someone starts a new what're you reading there? Doctor Shepherd's medical text.
Look at this.
It says a common symptom of meningitis is cold hands and feet.
I have that.
Your hands are cold in the middle of summer.
I wouldn't be worrying about that.
- Well - Ok, great.
Just remember to gargle with salt water and that should help with the sore throat.
I think Clara's going to love this lace I got her.
I can never get enough of that country air.
It's beautiful out here.
Oh! Uh, what was that? I don't know.
But It doesn't sound good.
These ribs are gonna be the hit of the party.
Well, I hear Gustave is making braised lamb.
Is that right? Yeah.
You're supposed to mince the garlic.
I thought you said you know how to cook.
Well, Allie doesn't complain.
Although she's been offering to cook a lot more lately.
I was at Elizabeth's earlier today.
There was this big bouquet of flowers on her table.
Somebody left them at her front door, no card.
Uh somebody somebody got her flowers? Yeah.
Thought you might know something about it.
Did she-did she like them? You could say that.
Hi, Molly.
Well? Oh, I'm so sorry! Your job! Congratulations.
Oh, thank you.
But no, not that.
The flowers.
How did you hear about that? Oh, I saw them on your front step.
So, who are they from? Uh, well, to be honest I don't know.
There wasn't any card.
Really? A secret admirer.
How fun.
Well, I should go.
Of course.
- Good afternoon.
- Bye.
Must have been that pothole I drove through back in Benson Hills.
You don't know anything about cars, do you? Surely you jest.
I thought you could fix anything.
Hunh! Only if it has a hand set and a ringer.
Oh, I feel terrible.
I'm late for Clara's fitting.
And you would have made it on time had we not been stuck here for over an hour.
I think this is Jed Campbell's land.
Hmm? Wait, Rosemary.
Where are you going? Getting us a ride! You are late.
I'm sorry, I was with Judge Avery.
There was a problem with the food.
Come on.
I saw Mrs.
Thornton earlier.
She really liked those flowers that someone left on her door.
Did she? Mmmhmm.
Did she say anything else? Nope.
Nothing? Anything you wanna tell me? No.
What can I get you, Bill? Oh, nothing for me.
I just wanted to stop by and check on the beverages for the party.
Everything in stock, ready to go? Nothing's changed since you checked this morning.
Oh, right.
You know, I notice that you don't put out flowers.
Are you a fan? Of flowers? As much as the next man.
I was at Elizabeth's this morning and she had this beautiful bouquet on her table.
Quite stunning.
Is that right? Somebody left them at the door.
No card, no tag.
Did she like them? Very much.
Any idea who might have left them? I really couldn't say.
You couldn't say or you don't know? I don't know what's taking Rosemary so long.
I bet she ran into Henry.
Just tell him the truth.
He'll understand.
This is Henry Gowen we're talking about here.
He loves this car.
You don't know anything about cars, do you? I prefer transportation of the four-legged variety.
The coast is clear! Henry's in his office.
I'm sorry to flee the scene of the crime but the bride waits! Of course.
I'll figure this out.
Let's pull it to the livery.
Kevin won't mind.
Come on, let's go.
Oh, Elizabeth, I'm so sorry.
Is Clara still here? In here! She's just trying it on.
Clara, I am so sorry I am late, it's a long story, but the bottom line is I got the lace and it's absolutely Oh, perfect.
Exactly how long am I going to be your accomplice? As soon as we fix it I'll be out of your way.
"We"? I don't know the first thing about cars.
I thought you might.
Because I'm a blacksmith? Because you seem like a smart guy.
Well, I mean, maybe I could help.
Thank you, Molly.
You sure to work? Like a charm.
Are you alright? Chills.
I may have meningitis.
Or worse.
Well, that doesn't sound good.
No, it doesn't.
Feel better.
Thank you.
Where's Mike going? He has an appointment.
He just had a sore throat.
I told him to gargle with salt water.
How about a second tart? I know Laura loves those.
Aw, that's so sweet.
I'm surprised you're still here.
I would think you'd be getting ready for your big party.
Oh, well, Bill's running late.
He said he had some last-minute work to do.
Oh, there he is.
Ah, just the person I've been looking for.
I have been working on your little surprise.
Ooh, what surprise? Elizabeth had I was hoping to surprise little Jack with a a cake.
And Bill offered to bake me one.
But I have assured him that I am more than capable of baking my own cake.
Are you sure? I really don't mind.
Oh, I'm sure.
Besides, what would everyone else think if they heard you were baking me one? Well, it shouldn't be a secret.
I would think everyone would be happy for you.
His cakes are pretty good.
Thank you, Clara.
Ok, try it again.
Well, that didn't work.
Well, what else could it be? Could it be that thing? What is that? I thought you'd know.
So how was your trip to Benson Hills? Splendid.
- Couldn't have been better.
- Good.
No surprises at all.
And you're ready for the bachelorette party? Of course I am.
It doesn't seem like that long ago that we were going through all of this.
It's like yesterday, isn't it? Those were good times.
They truly were.
But you know what? The best are still to come.
Come on.
Ok, great.
We'll see you in a couple weeks.
Busy day at the infirmary? Busier than usual, yes.
Well, I heard you hired Molly.
That must be lightening the load.
Actually, it was Faith who hired her.
It's not that I'm not grateful, it's just It's just She's driving me nuts.
She doesn't follow any of my directions.
She thinks she has every ailment in my medical book.
Patients have cancelled because they're worried about catching her symptoms.
And now she's diagnosing my patients.
I don't know what to do.
It sounds like you should probably just be honest with her.
That is easier said than done.
What's easier said than done? - Hello, Elizabeth.
- Hi.
Oh, we were just talking about bachelor parties and how much easier they are said than done, aren't they? Mmmhmm.
Your patient is waiting.
Thank you.
Ok, hurry up.
We have more important things to do tonight.
Almost finished.
Good friends, good food, some laughs, cards.
That's what it's all about, right? Right.
You're supposed to be excited about this.
I am.
About all of it.
I see.
You know it's perfectly normal to be nervous.
It's a big step for both of you.
Were you nervous? Absolutely I was nervous.
I just-I keep getting the feeling we're gonna go through all this and I'm not gonna measure up, you know.
Jesse, you can spend your whole life doubting yourself but wouldn't you rather spend that time enjoying what you've got? I have seen the way she looks at you.
If that's not love I don't know what is.
I guess you're right.
Of course I'm right.
Now come on, it's your bachelor party.
Let's go have some fun.
I'd say that was a productive day, wouldn't you? I'd say that it was.
Molly? I think we need to talk.
What about? I appreciate everything that you're doing around here.
You are very organized, and obviously take a lot of pride in your work.
I hope you understand that I can't have you diagnosing my patients.
You're not a nurse and you're not a doctor.
I was only trying to help.
I realize that.
But from now on you run everything by me.
I just wanted to make your day a little easier, but if this is how you want things then that's that.
Ok, great.
Will there be anything else? No.
Good day, Doctor Shepherd.
We'll see you at the party.
- I'll call.
- I'll call.
- How many cards, boys? - Two.
Yeah, I'll take two.
One, please.
And I will take three.
I'll take a pair.
This is what it's all about, right fellas? A bunch of friends getting together, showing Jesse a good time before he takes the big plunge? You're having a good time, right Jess? Yeah, yeah, of course I am.
Oh, Florence, you're up.
No! Tell an embarrassing story about the bride.
Oh, I couldn't.
Oh yes, you could.
You're right, I could.
Look at them.
Are we being cruel? Are you kidding? This is all innocent fun.
Let's hear them call this a bridal shower.
Would you just look at them? Guys.
Right, right.
Let's deal.
Deal? We haven't finished this hand yet.
Oh, right.
Oh, Elizabeth, that's hysterical! Who wants more punch? - Yes.
- Yes.
Thank you.
I'm out.
It's good to see Elizabeth having so much fun.
Yes, it is.
So sweet, kind-hearted, giving.
Maybe it's time somebody did something nice for her.
Well, I like to think that I already have.
Good for you.
Where have you been? Oh, just a last-minute work thing.
Where've you been? Uh, I got stuck at the livery.
Alright, boys.
How about a new hand? - Absolutely.
- Alright.
- Deal them up.
- Lucas, your deal.
Where'd Lucas go? Right over there.
Thank you very much.
Oh, you're welcome.
A little magic trick.
Oh! Lucas! What's he doing over there? It looks like he's having fun.
Well, we're having fun! Maybe we could blend the parties? Blend the-this is a bachelor party! It's not social hour! - Am I right? - Right.
Jesse, you're having fun, right? Yeah.
But that looks like more fun.
Sorry, Lee.
Really? Thank you.
You're welcome.
Oh no, everyone's gonna look.
Is that right? Yeah, just a little a little this way.
I'm so sorry.
Did you see this? Oh wow.
It's so beautiful.
- That's really nice.
- Molly made it for us.
Great ribs, Bill.
They go really well with Gustave's zucchini.
Well, sweetheart, I have to admit.
Your party is way better than my party.
Well now it is everyone's party.
Oh! - Well done, that was very close.
- Thank you.
- Very good.
- Thank you.
Bill said he wanted to speak to you.
Something about the food.
- Hi.
- Hi.
You seem pretty good with those.
Do you wanna show me? I'm not that good.
Apparently, you wanted to talk to me? No, I didn't wanna talk to you.
But Hey! A little bit better.
Having fun? Yes.
I'm gonna grab a drink.
Would you like one? Actually, I'm quite chilled.
Perhaps a hot tea then or something? It's her first day.
She'll get the hang of it.
I think I hurt her feelings.
Well, this job is important to her.
This is her first full-time job in quite some time.
She wanted to impress you.
Thank you.
A little birdie told me someone left you a nice surprise on your doorstep this morning.
Yes, it was unexpected.
Well, nobody deserves it more than you do.
Thank you, Florence.
It made my day.
Mind if I join you? If you like.
You seem upset.
I'm just not feeling well.
I have muscle aches and chills.
It could be malaria or worse.
It most likely isn't malaria.
That's a tropical disease.
However, from your symptoms I have an idea of what you may have.
Really? What? You were reading my medical books, weren't you? In university they called it "medical student's disease".
You're mocking me.
No, I'm not.
And if you're not feeling well, Molly, I can help you.
I'll think about it.
I may just go home to rest.
If I was too harsh earlier today, I'm sorry.
You weren't too harsh.
You're the boss.
What you say goes.
I trust that my car was of some help to you on your trip to Benson Hills? Very.
Where where is it? Benson Hills? My car.
Um, it's just I offered to wash it.
I- I drove it through some mud and Kevin was nice enough to wash it.
Well, that's very kind of you, I appreciate that.
But I wonder, um, if I could get it back tomorrow though? I have an important meeting in Buxton.
Yeah, sure.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Thank you.
Enjoy your meal.
Well, that was a beautiful evening.
Yes, it was.
Well done, you two.
Thank you.
You know, I couldn't help but notice you seemed to spend a lot of time with Nathan.
I was gonna say Lucas.
Oh, I tried to spend time with everyone who was at the party.
Of course.
Goodnight, Elizabeth.
We know you better than you think.
And? And you are terrible at hiding your feelings.
What feelings? That right there.
It's like you're determined to prove my point.
Rosemary, it isn't that simple.
Try me.
Oh, never mind.
This is too embarrassing.
Saying it out loud just makes it feel too real.
Then I'll say it for you.
Your heart is open again, isn't it? And now it's being pulled in two different directions.
Well, I for one am thrilled for you.
Don't be.
Besides, I fear I misread both of them, anyway.
What do you mean? This morning someone left flowers on my doorstep.
I assumed it was one of them but then tonight I just what? The person who left flowers for you cares about you very much.
They were from you? I'm so sorry.
You seemed so down the other night and I thought they might cheer you up so I came over to your place, I knocked on your door, you didn't answer so I left them there.
We barely spoke all day.
I just simply forgot.
Please forgive me.
Forgive you? I am so lucky to have a friend like you.
Well, I couldn't agree with you more.
And in a way I guess I'm relieved.
What? Why? Because if the flowers had been from one of them then it would be real.
And I'm not sure I'm ready for that.
I'm sorry.
It broke down coming back from Benson Hills.
We tried to fix it.
Sure shines up nice, though.
Just let me know what it costs to fix and I'll find a way to pay you.
I should probably apologize.
The choke is a little sticky and sometimes it needs a little persuasion.
Well, I probably should have mentioned that.
Good morning, Doctor Shepherd.
Your first patient will be here shortly.
Here's their chart.
I'll prepare the bed.
Molly It's good to have you here.
It's good to be here.
Look at you all grown up in your big boy clothes.
And so handsome.
There you go.
You've got blocks.
Can I have I thought you might like these.
I don't know what to say.
You don't have to say anything.
Just enjoy them.
You deserve it.
Thank you.
Well, it appears as though things just became real.
