When Calls The Heart (2014) s08e10 Episode Script

Old Love, New Love, Is This True Love

1 Previously on When Calls the Heart - Ladies! - Fiona! You're a godsend.
Wow, you two really are meant for one another.
I accepted the surgical fellowship.
- And they all agree that I should - I accept.
You'll pastor the church? Jack's death wasn't Nathan's fault.
You know that, don't you? I fell in love with you, and I think that love is always worth fighting for.
So what did you say when he told you that he loves you? I only want what is best for you.
How would you know what's best for me? Big day, Ned.
How're you feeling? Carson, I uh I have cold feet.
That's natural on your wedding day.
No, no, no.
I I literally have cold feet.
Uh, perhaps it's uh, it's poor circulation? I uh, I I don't want Paul Junior hearing.
Florence has raised such a good boy.
Poor circulation aside, I am nervous about getting married.
You and Florence love each other, Ned.
As soon as you tie that knot, you're Woah, woah, woah, hold on there, Carson.
I don't think you're in any position to give advice on getting married.
Hey, fellas.
What's going on? Ned's trying to retreat.
That's not exactly fair, Bill.
Oh, you don't wanna get married anymore? - Good morning.
- Not necessarily.
Ned doesn't wanna get married anymore.
- No, no, no.
- Marriage can be awfully tricky.
Everything all right back here? It's over between Ned and Florence.
- No, it - This has to be upsetting.
Is there a problem I can help with? - No, no, no.
- There's no problem.
I mean, it's over already and it hasn't even started.
- Ladies! [WHISTLES.]
Fiona doesn't need your opinion to help Florence decide how she'll be wearing her hair.
Thank you, Molly.
So, if you'll excuse us.
Molly, that includes you.
Me? Especially you.
I'm the bride's best friend.
- Well, we are designing the dress - [ALL CONTINUE TO TALK OVER EACH OTHER.]
Normally I would speak to Molly about this but she has so much to do.
Am I making too much of a fuss? It's a bride-to-be's prerogative.
I guess maybe I just I wanna show Ned how he makes me feel.
And sometimes when I look in the mirror that isn't what I see.
Especially after losing Paul.
There's always been a part of me that's felt like maybe I am just a little bit of an ugly duckling.
But at least for today I I wanna be brave enough to see myself differently.
Oh, Florence.
You are not an ugly duckling.
You, along with everyone else, are going to see a beautiful swan.
I don't like the way I've behaved lately.
I haven't been myself, especially when it comes to our friendship.
I'm sure you'd agree.
We all face life's challenges in our own way.
But friends remain friends.
I think I'd like us to set our difficulties aside and just focus on Ned and Florence.
I feel that way, as well.
Ned, remember, you're closing early.
Molly, I need to speak with Florence.
No, not until you're at the altar.
No, I realize that, but I this is Ned, I have too much to get finished to stop and chitty-chat.
So are you excited about your mom getting married? I suppose.
Have a lot of calls come in? Only two and one was a wrong number.
But I've been talking with Paul so much that it hasn't been boring at all.
What're you doing? Uh, I'm just delivering mail for Mr.
Can I go with you? Sure.
All right, here you are.
Paul, are you helping Robert? I thought it'd be fun.
Oh, good for you.
Good for you.
All right, uh, be careful, boys.
Are you ready for this afternoon? I'm not sure I can go through with it.
Most folks don't know this about me but I I get stiff necked when I'm feeling backed into a corner.
Well, if you're not ready to get married, you're not ready to get married.
But everyone is telling me that I that I have to.
Maybe today isn't the day.
Ned, you have a good heart.
Trust it.
Uh, Henry? Uh would you be my best man? [LAUGHS.]
What made you change your mind? Well, even if I'm feeling backed into a corner it's better not to be alone, and you've you've always been in my corner.
Would you say yes? It would be my privilege, Ned.
All right.
It is so nice getting to spend time together like this.
If only time could stand still.
Carson, every time I think about you leaving I get this horrible ache in my stomach.
Sounds like an onset of acute loneliness.
And it's catching.
Do you have a prescription for that? Because I'm not feeling any better.
We will get through this.
I promise.
It is a long way up to that steeple.
Oh, ye of little faith.
You know, Joseph, um I have a confession to make.
I uh, I am a man of moderate faith.
In fact, I feel like a bit of a fraud being the head of the Pastor Search Committee.
What you believe does not affect our friendship.
At least, not until after you help me get this bell up there.
Ok, deal.
I suppose we should talk about the lumber we're gonna need to shore up that steeple.
And I was wondering if you'd let me run a little business proposition by you that I've been thinking about.
I'm intrigued.
- Great, let's talk.
- Ok.
Oh, how about this style? Oh, look at that.
Mmm No? What do you think of this? No.
- [SIGHS.]
Oh, excuse me.
Would the barber happen to be in? She is.
That is, I am.
Oh, well I was hoping for a trim.
I'm on a business trip and I like to look my best when meeting clientele.
Well, I'm I'm sorry, the shop's closed.
I see that.
I was hoping you could sneak me in.
Where would the next nearest barber be located? Union City? All that way.
Well, you must run a cracker-jack trade.
I was wondering whether or not the owner would be interested in selling? I am also the owner.
And no, thank you, I'm not interested.
It doesn't hurt to ask.
You have a nice day, miss.
Hey! Hey! Hey, somebody stop him! Hey! Stop! Stop! Stop! - [GROANS.]
- Jesse! Are you ok? Hey! Don't worry about me, get him! What? Get who, Jesse? CARSON: Are you hurt? It's too late.
Never mind.
Do you want me to get Clara? Uh, definitely not.
Jesse, who was that? That was the man who stole mine and Clara's savings.
Lousy thief! [GASPS.]
How's the wedding cake coming along? Everything's just fine.
- Mmm-hmm.
- Then I'll leave you to it.
All right.
Molly would have an absolute panic if she knew we haven't even started.
Or ever baked a wedding cake.
Now, I thought we'd make a three-tier cake, one tier for each child.
What is it? You've never baked a wedding cake? Minnie, neither have I.
We'll learn together.
Katie, welcome home! Ned? She just said she doesn't want me getting married.
Elizabeth, that's my little girl.
What do I do? All right, that is uh, 80, 90 Allie? And I'm sorry.
Sorry, 60 uh, 70, 80, 90 and one dollar.
Thank you very much.
Doggonnit, Allie? Can you please answer that? [RINGING CONTINUES.]
Hello, Molly.
What's going on? Where is everyone? Why aren't the decorations going up? [SIGHS.]
Bye, Molly.
Hi, Molly.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Did you just show Ned's daughter upstairs? I did.
And it is very hard to believe that that is who Ned said wanted to grow up to be just like you.
I need to speak with her.
She asked not to be disturbed.
Do you have any idea why she's so upset? All Ned said was that she doesn't want him to get married.
That's an unfortunate how do you do.
I think I'll go and see if I can be of any help.
I feel like Ned would appreciate that.
- If there is any.
- Yeah.
Florence still can't decide what to wear.
She mentioned that the two of you had spoken so would you mind stopping by Dottie's? Of course, I just need to check on Ned first.
All right.
So who's answering the phones if you're not at the switchboard? No one, I guess.
Come on.
Let's go.
Blakely was counting on you.
I'm sorry, Uncle Nathan.
Stay here until Mr.
Yost tells you it's time to leave.
Allie, answer the phone.
Oh, here you are.
There you are.
Oh, like I told you, I'd wear that.
It is a very beautiful dress.
We're picking a dress for Florence.
Oh, I already have.
What do you say? Molly, that's the dress you bought to impress Bill Avery.
It looks stunning on you.
Oh, thank you, but Florence admired it from the start and I want her to have it.
Are you sure? If I alter it I know my friend.
She'll love it.
Well, I'll have to work fast to cut it down, but I think we can all agree it's an absolutely gorgeous dress.
I know, run by the cafe and ask Clara to come by here.
The work will go twice as fast.
What about the wedding cake? Oh.
I have an idea.
Why would the CO2 level be so low? Faith Well, it depends what time I need Carson.
Carson, come with me.
You weren't kidding when you said you were at home in a kitchen.
Some of the best times I had growing up were spent cooking and baking.
With your mother? Our housekeeper, Ruthie.
She taught me everything.
From soup to nuts.
Clara, you're wanted in the dress shop.
Carson's filling in here.
Then I'm gone.
Mmm, so good.
I haven't eaten a thing.
Your seamstress skills are Minnie, how can I help? First thing, doctor, scrub up.
Where's Florence? She's inside resting.
I think everyone's taken it out of her.
Trying to be helpful, of course.
Well then, do you mind if I sit? Oh, of course not.
I hope this is ok.
Why wouldn't it be? Well, Molly did say that people are starting to talk about us.
And I said let 'em talk.
I'm glad you feel that way.
I think of you as more than a friend.
- Mike - I think of you as a confidant.
A confidant? I like that.
Oh, you're not supposed to see me until the ceremony.
I know.
What is it, Ned? I have cold feet.
I'll just have to knit you thicker socks.
You always think the best of me.
Why wouldn't I? But even if you had cold feet about us getting married and you said you simply couldn't go through with it, I will still think the best of you.
And I will forever love you.
Thicker socks will be perfect.
Ned? If you wouldn't think it too forward of me, before the ceremony, may I ask that we share our first kiss here? In private? Uh, that's a good idea.
Let's um, let's make it a good one.
Oh That was um, that was lovely.
Ned, use the other door.
- MIKE: Hello there, Ned.
- FIONA: Hi, Ned.
This is called the "Celebrated Chop Waltz".
Or not so celebrated in my case.
You sure you've never played the piano before? Shh.
I'm trying to concentrate.
This is hard.
Every time I come home the town seems so much smaller.
Thank you for looking after my father when he was ill.
Calling me and keeping me informed.
I hope it was a comfort knowing Florence was by his side.
I should have been by Dad's side.
- And if I were living here I - Katie, you and I both know that your father would never ask you to give up the life you've chosen to come back here.
Certainly not just to watch over him.
He doesn't need to ask.
I have already begun making arrangements.
Would you please sit down? Is there something about Florence that you find makes her ill-suited for your father? Florence is a wonderful woman.
I've known her since I was a child.
Then I'm sorry, I just I don't understand why you wouldn't want to see them married.
When my mother died my father nearly died along with her.
You weren't living in Hope Valley at the time so you wouldn't know.
I've never seen a man so stricken with grief.
But Katie, your father has found someone to love again.
Someone to lose again.
Elizabeth, if anyone should understand I'd think that'd be you.
You're right.
And in all honesty I still struggle with it.
But there will always be uncertainty in life and if we start to shrink back from those things that might hurt, well, then our greatest risk is possibly never experiencing our greatest joy.
Oh, this beading.
If we could use the machines it would go so much faster, don't you think? Mmm.
I once heard of a woman getting married in her bathing suit.
Did I say something wrong? No, I just have a hard time imagining Florence going for that idea.
She won't even raise the hem of her skirt an inch.
Elizabeth, uh, how are things going with Katie? I hope she decides to come to the wedding.
How are you two doing? - Fine.
- Mmm-hmm.
Just fine.
Stitching away as fast as we can.
Good luck.
Oh, Carson, you're gonna make someone a darn good wife.
I'll take that as a compliment.
Oh, it's meant to be.
Unfortunately, the woman that I love I bought this at Christmas but when Faith didn't come home from Chicago for the holidays it's been just in my pocket with me ever since.
Is that where you plan on keeping it? Well, the way I see it, a relationship is give and take.
I accepted the fellowship in Maryland, Faith doesn't wanna go, so I'm reconsidering my decision.
Have you ever heard it said that you make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give? That sounds very profound, Minnie.
But all I wanna know is what do I do? Lick the spoon.
That is not the answer that I was hoping for.
I'm saying that whether you're baking a cake or being a doctor always remember why you're working so hard.
And don't forget the best part.
ELIZABETH: Katie's afraid for you.
Of what might happen if you were to lose Florence.
And Ned, I'm sure you're a little afraid, as well.
It's it's why I've been so indecisive.
You know, after I lost Jack, I doubted that I'd ever be able to open my heart again.
And look what happened.
And while that should have been a comfort, for the longest time all I could focus on was the loss.
We both know what it feels like to wish you had just just one more day with that person you married.
But Ned, people like you and I, we have to remember what it is that we've learned.
That life is brief and and unexpected.
And we always have to ask ourselves, "what'll I do with today?" I went up to Katie's room but she didn't wanna talk.
But I think I will leave her a note making sure she understands that there'll be a place for her at the ceremony if she changes her mind.
Thank you, Elizabeth.
You're welcome, Ned.
Hey! It's getting to be that time.
Thank you.
Where's Katie? I haven't seen her.
I don't know, Paul.
Ladies, how are we doing? We are doing the very best we can.
All right.
Why don't I check on Florence? Hi, Molly.
Everything's looking beautiful out there.
Any sign of Katie yet? Not since we spoke.
Oh dear.
I know how Ned loves his daughter.
This is gonna break his heart.
Are we also getting ready here? Yes, and actually you're first in line.
I will go next.
I am on my final stitch.
Oh, me too.
Let's see who wins.
And I am - Almost finished! - Done! [LAUGHS.]
BOTH: Oh! Well, look at that.
We were working so fast.
We sewed the hem to our own skirts.
What do you think? Uh It's just so I can get over to Dottie's without my hair being seen.
Oh, ok.
Ned was right, this beekeeper's hat really does block your vision.
- Are you ready? - Uh-huh.
- One.
- Two.
Three! Baby girl, maybe uh, you could play something a little more up-tempo? Sure, daddy.
Uh, maybe somewhere in between.
FLORENCE: Am I ready? Are you sure? Does my hair look all right? - Mmm-hmm.
- Oh, my goodness, Florence Thank you.
I appreciate you all so much.
But may I have a minute alone with Molly? Oh.
Was this your idea, to give me the dress that you bought for yourself? You look so beautiful wearing this.
And now so do you.
Thank you for always wanting the best for me, sometimes even at your own expense.
You you really are the sister I never had.
You're the mother I forever wanted and you are the friend that I have always needed.
From the depths of those dark and terrifying coal mines you've walked beside me, picking me up whenever I've stumbled along the way.
And you have done the same for me.
Oh, I have one more thing.
Everyone has something new for the wedding except you.
So I bought this for you.
Oh, goodness.
Oh, give me five minutes! Yes! I'm told it won't be much longer.
Well, I will wait as long as necessary for Florence.
Oh, we are supposed to wear these.
Here, let me put it on you, Ned.
Oh, thank you.
I I don't know what she sees in me.
Well, when two people only see the good in one another or when one sees something in the other that he can't remotely see in himself, I figure that's a gift.
Treasure it, Ned.
And you and she write so often.
Yeah, yeah.
When I when I sit at my desk and I look out the window across at the cafe and I see her name I got nothing but regret.
The fact that you two write each other will always stay between us.
Thank you, Ned.
You look very handsome.
And you, beautiful.
Thank you.
Do you think that there's a problem? - I don't know what it could be.
- Hi.
- Hello.
- Hi Would you please fix my hair? Uncle Nathan tried his best.
Of course I will.
Turn around.
This looks like a dropper loop.
You know about dropper loops? Yeah, my brothers used to take me fishing.
Jesse, there's not much to go on.
But you know the man is back in the area.
His name's Wyman Walden.
If that's even his real name.
I'm sorry, sweetie.
Stop apologizing.
We have to keep looking forward to all the good things that lie ahead of us.
See you in there.
Thanks! You're looking rather dapper.
You dressed yourself today.
Yes, I did.
I also learned to play piano.
You learned to play the piano? - I did.
- Lee? I did.
I it's the truth.
- I was pretty good, too.
Thank you.
Oh, wait.
Why don't you join them? Hi, Daddy.
Sweetheart! Hi, little brother.
Ok, you two.
All rise.
Florence You look gorgeous.
Please be seated.
Welcome, friends.
With the two of us officiating these vows should be twice as strong.
Those of us here to witness this marriage are a cherished few chosen by Ned and Florence.
It was their wish to invite only their closest and dearest friends today.
The giving of one's heart is not to be taken lightly.
Florence and Edmund - Edmund? - Lee.
Did you know his name was Edmund? [WHISPERS.]
You've declared your desire to be one, giving yourselves to each other in a life-long covenant.
To be neither selfish nor self-serving, insisting on one's own way.
With humility, gentleness, and patience, looking to bind yourself together in perfect unity through love and keeping no records of wrongs.
Because you're gonna be wrong.
So if you all will now repeat after me.
BILL: By the power vested in me I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Please, if you'd like.
- Huzzah! [APPLAUSE.]
Ring that bell, Coop! Ok, Pop.
I'm so glad you came.
The ceremony was beautiful.
- My father looked so happy.
- Mmm-hmm.
So what now? Will you going to go back to Hamilton to continue teaching? Elizabeth, I don't want my father to stop calling or writing me.
Katie, Florence could never, and would never, try to replace you.
Thank you.
For everything.
- Hey, Allie? - Hi.
Did you enjoy the wedding? At least it went by fast.
I, uh, like your hair.
How nice of you to notice.
Ladies and gentlemen, please help me welcome the bride and groom for their very first dance as husband and wife.
Oh, I'm having the time of my life.
Florence, the way you look tonight is utterly captivating.
Thank you, Ned.
I know I look different, but more importantly, and for a number of reasons, I I feel different.
I feel beautiful.
I really like what Joseph had to say about not being selfish in a relationship.
I liked that, too.
I've decided to stay.
I think you might be caught up in the mood of the moment.
In part.
Why not? The hope of spending the rest of your life with someone you love? I want that.
Don't you? Yes, but Carson, you are not being selfish by going.
You are, however, sacrificing your life by staying.
Please, if I may, as requested by the bride and groom, it is now time for the mother-son, father-daughter dance.
I am so glad you changed your mind.
Elizabeth helped me realize that living in fear is no way to live.
You are growing up so fast.
Maybe when Deborah gets home from college I'll be as tall as her.
Oh, I'm sorry that your sister well, your other sister, can't be here today to celebrate, but I really look forward to us all being together in the spring.
And now everyone is invited to join the Yosts and Blakelys.
Would you like to dance? I would, very much, Robert.
Thank you.
Ah, looks like Robert might end up getting married before you, my friend.
I'm kidding.
I'm kidding.
Ladies? Molly, you are looking lovely tonight.
Oh, thank you, Bill.
You look rather dashing in that suit.
Thank you.
You know, I didn't get a chance to actually thank you for going to the trouble of letting out my serge.
Oh, just a bit.
And for the magnificent send-off.
It was my pleasure.
Would you like to dance? I'd love to.
So, how did I do? Joseph, are you actually asking me how you did your first time here as pastor? Well, I would think you'd like to know how you did with your first wedding cake.
I had help.
So did I.
God is good, all the time.
Oh, you were right.
Hope Valley is different.
It's the place to give our children roots to grow and wings to fly.
Yes, absolutely, for sure.
I've barely seen you today.
I know, but you've had your hands full.
And you look so beautiful, by the way.
Oh, and Florence's dress? Stunning.
I had a little help.
Oh, hey, did you hear about Jesse? Yes.
He chased down the man who absconded with their money.
I think this definitely has something to do with what I've been talking about.
Ah, the investment scheme.
Scheme, scam, call it what you will.
Something is definitely up.
I just don't know what.
Well, don't look at me.
I don't know.
Shall we? FLORENCE: Where are you going? Ned, is something wrong? No, no.
No, no.
No, no.
It's here somewhere.
Uh Ah, your engagement ring finally arrived.
Thank you for being so patient.
Ned, I I was not expecting [GASPS.]
Oh, Ned.
It's been in the family for years.
Mother would have wanted you to have it.
She would have loved you.
Oh! Thank you.
I love it.
Oh, Elizabeth, come here! Faith, look! Look at what my husband just gave me.
- Oh, my goodness.
- Florence.
- Ned.
- Isn't it beautiful? JESSE: Mike, Mike, Mike.
Mike? Care to dance? Fiona.
Thank you.
You might have been wrong.
I was wrong.
- Shall we? - Mmm-hmm.
So is this all right that I asked you? It's my pleasure.
You know, I've been thinking about what you said.
About constructing a pipe line from the oil barracks to the train station.
It's smart.
You don't think it's crazy? I mean, you're the only one I've told.
The capital outlay would be substantial but the cost could be recouped in no time.
By my calculations, anyway.
I meant what I said.
You got a mind for business.
Mike, you can do this without me.
Would you consider at least coming on as a partner? With Henry's and Lucas's blessing, of course.
When the time comes to talk with them I'll be happy to consider.
I've never done that.
Did Allie mention that she stopped by? She did, yeah.
I don't think Allie should be caught in the middle of this.
Thank you for your concern.
Allie's been through a lot already and I don't like adding to it.
Well, it it seems to me you could avoid that by not pressuring Elizabeth.
Enjoy the reception.
I love those earrings.
Just beautiful.
Excuse me.
Would you step outside with me for a moment, please? Yeah.
Jack might have taken the place for anyone on that mission, it just happened to be you.
And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, I don't blame you for his death.
Thank you.
