When Calls The Heart (2014) s08e06 Episode Script

No Regrets

Previously on When Calls the Heart Mrs.
Thornton, you're not credentialed to teach a sightless child.
- Dottie's selling the dress shop.
- Oh.
What did you do with our money? I'm a nervous wreck.
I've never run a barbershop or a beauty salon.
I worry about you.
I do.
Rizzoli offered me a surgical fellowship.
Would you consider coming with me? Carson, we're not even married.
I do have you all to myself tonight.
I'm looking forward to it.
I noticed that Jesse wasn't here this morning again.
While I appreciate your attentiveness, I've told you, I don't wish to talk about it.
Fair enough.
I mean, what kind of a husband goes behind his wife's back, withdraws their life savings, then risks it all in some kind of foolish investment? And doesn't even have the decency to tell her about it until she confronts him.
Food's getting cold.
Clara asked me to leave.
Oh no.
Oh boy.
I'm so sorry.
Lee, I don't know what I was thinking.
And the worst part is I broke my wife's trust.
For a second time.
Well, we all make bad choices in our marriage from time to time.
Um, I have to get going.
I'll be right back.
And don't worry.
We'll figure this out.
In the meantime, go to the saloon, get a room, tell Lucas to put it on my tab, all right.
I'll be right back.
- Oh, I'm so sorry.
- My fault.
- Mike, you got a minute? - Oh, yeah, sure.
- Buy you a coffee? - See ya.
I think we need to consider doing some grading or trench.
Along the southern side of well 2? Right, right.
Come in.
Come in.
Hello? Hey, sweetheart.
You're out of breath.
A guy can't run home in the middle of the morning to give his wife a big kiss? You're sweet.
Well, actually there was something that uh, I kind of forgot to tell you about.
I actually think it's kinda funny, - and you might find it funny, too.
- Oh? - Yeah.
- What? I was the one who reached out to Dottie Ramsey to ask about buying the dress shop.
Why would you do that? To surprise you.
Well, you certainly managed to do that.
Not in a good way, I see.
Um, you're making dinner already? It's kind of early where's my watch? Lee, unless there is something else you forgot to mention, something funny, go back to work.
Yes, dear.
- Hello, Clara.
- Hi.
The usual, please.
Fiona didn't leave me any instructions.
She usually takes a little off the sides and cleans up the neck.
I have to maintain my appearance.
You're looking at a man who just got a $2 a month raise.
Oh! Well, congratulations.
But I'm sorry.
Thursday is a ladies' day.
You're alternating days now.
So let me ask you.
What day is it now? Thursday.
And now? Thursday, the 17th.
So much for my raise.
Will you come back tomorrow? We'll see.
Is the morning good? Of course.
And I was only kidding.
I brought you an old family remedy that does wonders for stomach upset.
Well, that is so kind.
It contains peppermint and fennel, which sounds worse than it tastes.
I worry about you.
I appreciate that.
Florence Oh! Florence.
I didn't see you there.
Either of you.
It's so funny, I just didn't see you.
I was just hoping to mail this to- Helen Bouchard? Same address? Yes, and hopefully this will be her last set of notes.
Well, congratulations.
Huzzah! Thank you.
Thank you.
Hi, Mrs.
Hi, Allie.
- What're you up to? - Fishing.
If Mr.
Yost has any what's it called again, Uncle Nathan? Oil of citronella.
To keep away the mosquitos.
Yeah, we hear the fish aren't the only thing that are biting.
I sold my last bottle yesterday but I have a large delivery tomorrow.
Will you check back? Thank you.
Bye, Mrs.
Bye, Allie.
Come on, Uncle Nathan.
Do you still like Mrs.
Thornton? Sure, yeah.
I mean, do you like, like her? All right, why do you get to ask me about Mrs.
Thornton but I can't ask you about Robert, huh? Uncle Nathan, you didn't answer my question.
No, I didn't.
But you know what? I just had an idea of what we can do now that we're not going fishing.
Really? What is it? Well, you gotta catch me to find out.
I know when someone's up to no good.
Higher Cooper.
Cooper, you be careful there.
Not too high, you hear? All right.
Coop, you listen to your mama, now.
Thank you for putting up our swing.
Oh, you're welcome, baby girl.
I'm gonna build one for your mama and me now.
Angela, when is it my turn? Just a little longer.
And don't slow down.
I'm not.
Yes, you are, Cooper.
- No, I'm not.
- Yes, you are.
Push harder.
Ow! My knee! Angela! Ow! - Baby.
- What happened? I hurt my knee! I didn't mean to do it, Mama.
Stay here.
I'm gonna hitch up the horse.
I'm sorry, Angela.
See if you can help your father.
Go on.
Ow! Ow! Ow! It's ok, baby girl.
Doctor? I'm worried Ned's ulcer may have returned.
If I can convince him to come by the infirmary, will you see him? Yes.
I'm with Angela Canfield at the moment but please.
I'll have Molly come get you when it's time.
Thank you, Carson.
I don't think it's broken.
I bet you gave your mom a big scare falling off that swing.
She most certainly did.
Woah, woah, woah.
Are we having fun yet? First lesson is getting on the horse.
- Hi, Mrs.
- Hi.
Uncle Nathan's teaching me how to ride.
Well, he's trying to, anyway.
I'm sure you're trying, too.
Do you wanna come riding with us? Maybe another time? After your uncle has given you a few more lessons? All right.
Don't give up.
It takes practise.
But someday you'll be galloping along all by yourself.
Like Robert? Let's hope not.
Have fun.
Ok, uh, let's give it another try.
Remember, second lesson.
If you fall off the horse you get right back on, ok? - I can do this.
- You can.
- Ok.
- Got it? All right.
One, two, three.
Uncle Nathan! I did it! I really did it.
So I guess you don't like Mrs.
Thornton anymore.
Or she doesn't like you? We like each other.
But do you like, like each other? Allie, it's complicated.
Besides, I don't even know what that means.
Uncle Nathan, if I know what it means you must know what it means.
Why don't you explain it to me? Ok.
Remember when I used to like, like Robert? What, used to? That's over between you two? Robert's decided he like, likes Anna.
I think it's because she can spit water between her front teeth.
And are you upset that he like, likes Anna and not you? Well, I was, but it's just so silly.
I don't know, Allie.
It sounds like you still care.
Well, yeah.
Maybe a little.
You don't have to explain it to me.
- You're early.
- I didn't wanna be late.
Thank you for coming.
My pleasure.
This is all very unexpected.
I thought it would be a nice way to finish the day.
It's wonderful.
After you.
Do you think he'll come home tonight? Honestly, I'm surprised that he's been gone this long.
If you don't mind me saying, I wouldn't let him come home yet.
Our savings are gone.
Everything we both worked so hard for.
Clara, everything will be all right.
- I know that you're trying to help, but - You know what? You're right.
I'm sorry.
I've been struggling so much with my relationship with Carson that I'm hardly in a position to be giving advice.
I thought you two were back on track.
Things were fine until He received a prestigious offer to do a surgical fellowship in Baltimore.
Are you leaving Hope Valley? Honestly, I don't I don't know.
But what if it means losing Carson? Well, now, that's the big question.
Hello, Henry.
What're you doing here? Just looking for a place to sit.
Do you mind? I thought we already said our goodbyes.
Goodbye, hello, people come, people go.
What do you recommend? Why don't you think about leaving.
You came looking for me.
Hey there, Henry.
How're you doing? Afternoon.
Christopher Hughes.
Rosemary Coulter.
Leland Coulter.
Nice to meet you.
So, Christopher, what brings you to Hope Valley? We just have a little bit of unfinished business we're dealing with.
Of course.
Well, we'll let you get back to that business, then.
Rosemary? Don't bother sitting down again.
I've come a long way.
I know how far you've come.
And I suggest you get back there tomorrow morning.
This is some delivery.
Oh, any sign of the package I ordered? Uh no.
Ah, there's my citronella.
Oh! At least Molly's package has arrived.
Would you listen for the phone? Oh, uh, certainly.
Lord, I just wanna make sure Yes, make sure Minnie's happy.
The children are You sound crazy, you know that? People here don't know you walk around talking out loud to God.
Just a little talk.
Makes it all right.
How about a little talk with me? This is what I'm always on about.
In a blink that little girl can get hurt.
It happens that quick.
I got busy and I wasn't paying attention.
It was my doing.
It's about not letting this kind of thing happen in the first place.
That's why I'm having second thoughts about working with Elizabeth.
I'm very sorry to hear that.
Come on, now.
Come have a seat with me on your - your new swing.
My new swing, huh? Well, it will be when I finish building it.
Come on, now.
- Now, you listen to me.
- Hmm.
You either trust Elizabeth Thornton to take good care of Angela It's not that I don't trust her.
Or you trust God.
Either way, I believe our little girl's gonna be in good hands.
Hmm? It's all right.
This has been so lovely.
Thank you, Lucas.
Something you needed? Oh, yes.
You have no idea how many notes your mother sent on my manuscript.
So many changes, again.
That's her hallmark.
Well, you could have warned me.
Life is more fun with surprises.
The kind you seem to be full of, yes.
Well, since our first date did not go as planned, I thought I need to try and make it up to her.
I don't know.
Dinner in the back yard under the stars? It was pretty nice.
It was.
And I'm happy that we were there in case Jack needed you.
To us.
Maybe we should head back.
It might pass.
Oh! Oh!! Looks like we're getting wet! We are getting soaked! Think of it as another surprise! Lucas! Come on.
I I can't.
Not yet.
I'm sorry.
I understand.
Another package arrived for you.
I'm afraid to tell you.
Not more notes from Helen Bouchard.
Don't kill the messenger.
I'm thinking of having that stitched on a sampler.
- Ow.
- Ned? Oh I'm fine.
Um, this arrived for you, too.
Oh, my goodness! Elizabeth.
Any citronella? Yes, I put some aside.
You can pay me later since I know you and Allie are in a hurry.
Oh, thanks, Ned.
It was nice seeing you again.
Nice to see you, too.
Bye, Mrs.
Bye, Allie.
Avoiding me? - Well - Don't answer that.
We went all day yesterday without discussing it.
All last night.
We even managed to have dinner at the saloon and avoid the subject.
Well, maybe we should sit down now and talk about it.
You're already sitting.
I called Dottie and inquired about buying the dress shop.
Why, you might ask? Well, I just thought you should be your own boss.
Thank you for the compliment.
But as soon as I hung up I realized that you would never want me to buy your way into being a boss.
You would want to earn it yourself.
That is correct.
So I called Dottie back and I told her that I was no longer interested.
But unfortunately, I guess it got her thinking about selling.
Sweetheart, I am so sorry for sticking my nose in your business.
Thank you.
Who knows? Perhaps it's for the best for me.
- So long as I can keep Clara and Rachael employed.
- Right.
- If they so choose.
- Hmm.
This seems like quite the nice shop.
Are you looking for anything in particular? Something for a special lady, perhaps? Well, that would depend on whether or not the special lady sees anything she likes in the shop window.
Oh, she does.
Excuse me.
You have a smudge there.
Just a little.
Oh, no.
It's hair.
I mean, it's here.
And it matches my colour perfectly.
Oh, Molly, I am so sorry.
Do not apologize again.
Shh! - Clara? - Mike? I'm closed.
I thought today was a men's day.
But uh it's half price Friday after 5:00.
I'll come back.
Well, for half price a man would let you cut his hair with sheep shears.
That was close.
I went by your office.
How long have you owned this company? I don't own it.
It's funny, the sign says Gowen Petroleum.
Indeed it does.
So uh, what? You uh You lost it? Hmm? Through your own mismanagement, or some such.
Something like that.
So what does that feel like losing something you obviously poured so much blood and sweat into creating.
Not good.
And I'm trying to learn from my mistakes.
- So what have you learned? - What have I learned? Yes, Henry, what have you learned? I learned that life is devastatingly short and fragile.
And that I will never have enough time left here to make amends or fix all the things that I have broken.
In just one moment, one moment without awareness or thought that I can crush something of such beauty and such potential, cause such pain.
And in that moment, well, it feels like it's something I will carry with me forever.
I know that you came here to say goodbye, so You know, it isn't too late to change your mind.
It is.
Because my mind's changed me.
Every day I went to that dress shop I was making this decision.
When all is said and done it isn't as though I haven't enjoyed myself, I have.
But fashions change.
So now I will, too.
Well, if you've decided you're going to leave the dress shop, have you also decided what you're going to do next? No.
But I can't wait to find out.
What do you think? Oh.
Well, Clara did a fantastic job.
I know.
Would you mind if I go across the street to show Florence? - Not at all.
- Thank you.
Oh, Ned dropped off the mail earlier.
Another letter from Dr.
I responded to his first letter and please, go ahead.
Read what this one says.
You turned down his offer for a fellowship at Johns Hopkins.
Carson, your skills as a surgeon are going to waste.
- It doesn't matter.
- It does matter! You're here.
And I want us to be together.
For now.
In a month from now, in a year, you'll agree with what I'm saying.
And when that happens you're not gonna like working in this infirmary.
You're not gonna like me.
That's impossible.
Carson, I saw the frustration on your face yesterday with Angela Canfield.
If we had only had an x-ray machine We can buy whatever necessary equipment that we need, but what we can't buy is what you and I share together.
Rizzoli approaching you like this again after you turned him down? That says something.
I don't care.
I really thought you'd be happy about this.
You should accept this fellowship.
It's braille.
That's right, baby.
Thornton told me she'd ordered a book for you.
Where did you locate it? A shop in Hamilton.
My sister Julie helped me track it down.
I've never tried to read braille.
I wonder what it says.
That's what Mrs.
Thornton and I will find out.
And then we're going to teach you to read braille.
Once there was a braille book at the library in Jameson.
Only they wouldn't let us check it out.
We've been trying to find Angela a text for months so I could learn.
Well, I'm having more sent.
I just couldn't wait to bring this one over right away.
I'm so excited! I am, too.
Aren't you, Mama? Of course.
Where's your car? Oh, that belongs to someone else.
So you don't own an automobile? Mm, not at the moment.
Why? Did you want to go for a drive? That would be nice.
I'm new here and I'd like to see the sights.
Although I'm not sure there are sights to see.
There's always something to see.
You just gotta know where to look.
Rachael Thom.
Christopher Hughes.
Happy birthday.
Florence, my my birthday isn't I know, but I can't stand to wait on surprises.
Please, open it.
- I don't know what to say.
- Don't say anything, just open it.
All right.
Gee, I really thought it would have come in a bigger box.
Well, good things come in small packages.
Oh, I can't wait.
You know, I had such trouble with my order.
Everything got all mixed up.
Oh, I am sorry you had trouble.
I am just glad it's finally here.
I I can't tell you how touched I am that you thought of me.
That is not what I ordered.
It isn't? Oh, I love it.
It's, it's a beekeeper's outfit! How on earth did you know that I have developed an interest in all things beekeeping? Because I've developed an interest in all things Ned.
You went ahead and put a bell on that door.
So we wouldn't be interrupted.
Know Elizabeth a long time? I have.
She's made a big difference in my life.
Clara's, too.
You've been married for about a year, you said? That's right.
And who would you say is uh, most important in your marriage? Clara, of course, yeah.
And Clara would say you? Up until a little while ago, yeah.
Well, there's your problem right there.
Let's try it out.
What did you mean by "there's your problem"? Well, when it comes to marriage, you need two legs.
You and Clara.
And a crossbeam that holds you together.
So what's the crossbeam? Well, I'm glad you asked.
It's different for every couple, but what I think, what I believe, is God.
Now, most couples, they leave God at the alter the day of the wedding.
But if you keep him with you, he's there to hold you up, together.
Are you a preacher? That's a story for another day.
- Come on.
Let's get something cold to drink.
- Yeah.
So, are you ready to show me your list? Not yet.
But you'll tell me when you're ready, right? I will.
How are things going with Lucas? Really quite nice.
In spite of yesterday's picnic getting rained upon? In spite of and in light of.
I'm really enjoying myself with Lucas.
Well, I always say a little rain can help the romance to blossom.
What are you doing? Oh, well Hmm, I'm making a list of career possibilities.
- Oh.
- Mmm-hmm.
Good luck.
Ready now? - Not yet.
- Ok.
Got it.
This one's on the house.
Clara, I can't let you do that.
Mike, you're always so supportive.
Thank you.
You know, you did a really good job.
I did, didn't I? When Fiona gets back, if she needs any help, maybe I could work here after all.
There's an idea.
What'd you wind up buying? Um, strawberry rhubarb.
Allie likes strawberry rhubarb pie? Well, I'll find out.
She'll try anything once.
Why do we stop trying new things? I don't know.
Why do we give up when things don't go our way the first time? Staying where we're comfortable.
Staying with someone you're comfortable with.
There's plenty of new experiences to be enjoyed.
Or meaningful relationships.
She needs to trust me.
- If she just got to know me.
- Be willing to try.
- It's as simple as that.
- Easy as pie.
- I'm not giving up.
- I'm not giving up.
I thought you were leaving.
I got to the edge of town and I don't know I think I'm gonna stay.
If that's all right with you.
It's a start.
This is my son, Christopher.
Florence! Oh! Ned, you silly goose.
A bit hard to see out of this thing.
What is that, anyway? It's a beekeeper suit.
Florence gave it to me for my birthday and it fits perfectly.
Oh oh, it's getting a bit hot.
Oh I don't I don't I don't feel very well.
- Oh, no! - Oh my goodness! Ned! Ned? Ned! Ned? Ned!
