HOW DID IT FEEL TO WIN "ALBUM OF THE YEAR"

AT THE GRAMMYS?

[CHUCKLES]

WELL, UH, NOT TOO LONG AGO, I WAS PLAYING IN BARS AND CLUBS AROUND NASHVILLE, SO WINNING A GRAMMY'S BEEN QUITE A CHANGE.

CATHERINE MANN.

IT IS A REAL THRILL TO HAVE YOU IN THE STUDIO TODAY.

THANK YOU, STAN.

IT'S A PLEASURE TO BE HERE.

YOU DISCOVERED BRADLEY, DIDN'T YOU?

I MEAN, HE WAS ALREADY WELL-KNOWN IN NASHVILLE, BUT YOU BROUGHT HIM TO LOS ANGELES AND GOT HIM A RECORDING DEAL.

I INTRODUCED HIM TO A FEW PEOPLE, BUT HE'S A PRETTY TALENTED GUY.

HE GOT HIMSELF A RECORDING DEAL.

AND THE TWO OF YOU HAVE BEEN INSEPARABLE EVER SINCE?

[LAUGHS]

I THINK THE FIRST TIME I HEARD BRADLEY SING...

I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM.

[DOG YAPPING]

[STAN]: ARE YOU SAYING THE TWO OF YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME NEWS FOR US ONE DAY?

[BRADLEY]: WE LIKE TO KEEP OUR PRIVATE LIFE PRIVATE...

WE'RE ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED!

NOW, I KNOW WE AGREED NOT TO SHARE THIS PUBLICLY, BUT I JUST WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW HOW HAPPY I AM.

[STAN]: WELL! YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

CATHERINE MANN AND BRADLEY SUTTONS ARE ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED!

WELL, CONGRATULATIONS, BRADBIRD.

[CATHERINE]: ON THE OUTSIDE, HE'S SHOCKED...

[KNOCKING] ...THAT I SHARED IT PUBLICLY, BUT ON THE INSIDE...

MORNING, JAMES.

MORNIN'!

WHAT BRINGS YOU OUT HERE SO EARLY?

[CLICKS TV OFF] WELL...

I HAD TO COME OUT HERE TO SEE YOU, SINCE YOU WON'T ANSWER ANY OF MY PHONE CALLS OR EMAILS.

WELL, I DON'T GOT TIME FOR PHONE CALLS AND EMAILS.

I GOT A RANCH TO RUN.

HOW'S YOUR MAMA?

SHE... SHE'S REAL GOOD.

SHE GET THOSE GARDEN ROSES I SENT OVER?

SHE DID, AND I...

SHE IS SUCH A SWEET LADY.

YEAH, YEAH, SHE IS.

JAMES, DO YOU WANT SOME COFFEE?

I'D LOVE A HALF A CUP OF COFFEE, BUT YOU NEED TO STOP CHANGING THE SUBJECT, BECAUSE WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT YOUR FINANCES.

NOW, MY MAMA TOLD ME NEVER TO TALK ABOUT POLITICS OR MONEY IN MIXED COMPANY.

THERE'S NO GETTING AROUND THIS, SARAH.

I'M GONNA HAVE TO FORECLOSE ON YOU AND SELL OFF THIS RANCH, IF YOU CAN'T FIND A WAY TO MAKE THE MORTGAGE PAYMENTS.

IF IT WERE UP TO ME...

IT IS UP TO YOU, JIMMY.

YOU'RE THE PRESIDENT OF MILLTOWN BANK.

I DON'T OWN THE BANK, SARAH!

[TROUBLED SIGH]

I'M JUST WAITING TO HEAR IF I GOT THIS GRANT FROM THE EQUINE REHABILITATION FUND.

I'VE GIVEN YOU SIX MONTHS MORE THAN I HAVE ANY RIGHT TO, AND NOW I HAVE NO CHOICE.

[EXHALES]

ONE MONTH.

THAT'S ALL I'M ASKING.

ONE MONTH, SARAH. THAT TAKES US TO JUNE FIRST.

I WILL TELL YOU WHAT.

IF I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY BY JUNE 1ST, I WILL WALK INTO YOUR OFFICE, I WILL SHAKE YOUR HAND, AND I WILL SIGN THIS RANCH OVER TO YOU.

WELL, THAT'S... THAT'S FAIR.

YOU NEED ME TO SIGN SOMETHING?

YOU JUST DID.

[CHUCKLES]

THAT GUY GREW UP HERE.

BRADLEY SUTTONS.

HE USED TO LIVE NEXT DOOR.

MOVED AWAY WHEN HE WAS ABOUT 13, BUT I BELIEVE HE STILL OWNS THE HOUSE.

I REMEMBER.

HIS PARENTS WERE KILLED IN THAT CAR ACCIDENT, OVER IN GREENBRIER.

MM-HMM.

[JAMES]: MUST BE ABOUT THE MOST FAMOUS RESIDENT TO COME OUT OF MILLTOWN.

I GUESS YOU KNEW HIM PRETTY WELL?

KNEW HIM?

I WAS MARRIED TO HIM.

♪ ♪


IT'S OKAY TO CRY, BRADBIRD.

I WON'T TELL ANYONE.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE TO MOVE AWAY FROM HERE.

YOU'LL BE FINE.

YOU'RE SO SMART AND EVERYTHING.

I GUESS I'M SORT OF AN ORPHAN NOW.

I DON'T REALLY HAVE A FAMILY ANYMORE.

HEY. EVERYONE'S LOOKING FOR YOU GUYS.

LET'S GET MARRIED.

WHAT?

WE SHOULD GET MARRIED, THEN WE'LL BE EACH OTHER'S FAMILY.

WE'RE ONLY 13. WE CAN'T GET MARRIED.

YES, WE CAN.

THIS IS MY BARN, SO I MAKE THE RULES.

YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND AND I SAY WE CAN DO ANYTHING WE WANT.

WELL, HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET MARRIED?

I CAN MARRY YOU.

MY DAD'S A PASTOR.

I'VE SEEN HIM DO IT, LIKE, A HUNDRED TIMES.

IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

"DEAR BRADBIRD...

I SAW YOU ON TV, AND I COULDN'T HELP BUT REMEMBER ALL THOSE YEARS AGO WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS."

I AM GETTING CALLS FROM PEOPLE, FROM VANITY FAIR.

THEY ALL WANT TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR WEDDING, AND THEY ARE WILLING TO PAY HUGE!

NOT GONNA HAPPEN. WE WANT A PRIVATE WEDDING.

YES, WE WANT SOMETHING INTIMATE AND PERSONAL.

WHY?

A WEDDING SHOULD BE SHARED WITH THOSE WHO LOVE YOU MOST.

YOUR FANS.

BY THE WAY...

THIS CAME FOR YOU.

WHAT IS IT?

WELL, I HAVE NO IDEA.

BUT I BET IT'S A FAN WRITING YOU A LETTER FOR AN AUTOGRAPH, BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU AND THEY WANT TO BE A PART OF YOUR LIFE, AND THAT IS WHY YOU NEED TO SHARE THE HAPPY DAY WITH THEM.

HMM?

FINE. I'LL GIVE IT TO THE PR DEPARTMENT.

THERE'S SOMETHING IN HERE.

IT'S FROM A FAN, ALL RIGHT, A FAN WHO'S CLEARLY IN LOVE WITH YOU.

SHE SENT YOU A DIAMOND RING.

[GASPS]

I'M SURE IT'S NOT REAL.

THIS IS A TIFFANY CUT ONE HALF-A-CARAT DIAMOND IN A WHITE GOLD SETTING, AND...

IT COMES WITH A LOVE LETTER.

OF COURSE IT DOES!

"DEAR BRADBIRD..."

"I SAW YOU ON TV, AND I COULDN'T HELP BUT REMEMBER ALL THOSE YEARS AGO, WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS.

I'VE THOUGHT ABOUT YOU OFTEN OVER THE YEARS."

"BRADBIRD"? [CHUCKLES]

NO ONE'S CALLED ME THAT IN AGES.

LET ME SEE THAT.

FIRST LOVE?

WE WERE 13.

AWW! SHE WAS YOUR GIRLFRIEND?

NO. SHE WAS MY WIFE.

IT WAS THE DAY OF MY PARENTS' FUNERAL.

I WAS SO SAD AND LOST.

FELT ALONE IN THE WORLD.

SARAH, SHE, UH...

SHE OFFERED TO MARRY ME, SO I'D HAVE A FAMILY.

THAT'S SO NICE.

SHE WAS A GREAT GIRL.

AND THIS RING...

THIS IS MY MOTHER'S RING.

I THINK I'M JEALOUS.

NO, THE GIRL I REMEMBER, SHE WAS REAL SKINNY, WITH FRECKLES, AND SHE PREFERRED HORSES TO PEOPLE.

MM.

YOU KNOW, I STILL OWN MY PARENTS' HOUSE.

I'VE NEVER BEEN BACK THERE SINCE THAT DAY.

I SHOULD PROBABLY DEAL WITH THAT.

YOU KNOW, YOU SHOULD COME WITH ME, SEE WHERE I GREW UP.

I'D LOVE TO.

IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

SHE'S DOING A MOVIE. YOU'RE UNDER CONTRACT.

WELL, WHY DON'T YOU GO BACK?

TAKE CARE OF THINGS, SELL THE HOUSE, HAVE SOME DOWN-TIME, AND AFTER WE GET MARRIED, I'LL GO BACK WITH YOU, AND SEE WHERE YOU GREW UP.

I'D LOVE TO KNOW THAT PART OF YOU.

I'D LIKE THAT.

I'LL SEE YOU TONIGHT. MM-HMM.

[SMOOCHES HER]

A SMALL WEDDING?

IN ITALY?

IN A WAY.

I'VE RENTED AN ITALIAN VILLA AND...

ONLY INVITED MY CLOSEST FRIENDS.

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN YOU HAD A PLAN.

♪ ♪

I'M JUST HERE FOR A DAY OR SO, TO SELL THE HOUSE.

FIGURE THERE'S NO POINT IN HOLDING ON TO IT.

WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU PAID OFF THE MORTGAGE YEARS AGO, AND THE MAINTENANCE STAFF THAT TAKES CARE OF THE HOUSE IS ON RETAINER, SO ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS PUT IT ON THE MARKET.

GREAT.

I, UH... [SIGHS]

I-I REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FOLKS.

IT WAS, UH, WAS A HUGE SHOCK FOR THIS COMMUNITY, ONE OF THE TOUGHEST...

SO, I GUESS THAT'S ALL THE BUSINESS WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF?

RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT.

I WILL PUT YOU IN TOUCH WITH SALLY HARTFORD.

SHE'S THE LOCAL REAL ESTATE BROKER WE USE HERE AT THE BANK.

SHE CAN PUT YOUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET, TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING.

I APPRECIATE THAT, SIR. THANK YOU.

YEAH, I'M GONNA BE HERE IN TEXAS FOR THE NEXT DAY OR SO, AND THEN I'LL HEAD TO MY STUDIO IN NASHVILLE, AND TRY TO WRITE SOME MORE MUSIC BEFORE I HEAD OUT ON TOUR.

HANK, I'M... I'M GONNA HAVE TO CALL YOU BACK.

YEAH. ALL RIGHT.

I DIDN'T GIVE YOU MY ADDRESS, DID I?

[DRIVER]: OH, EVERYBODY KNOWS WHERE YOUR HOUSE IS.

YOU'RE PRETTY FAMOUS HERE IN MILLTOWN.

THEY GOT A SANDWICH NAMED AFTER YOU DOWN AT THE DINER.

REALLY?

OH, YEAH.

I'M SORRY, BUT DO I KNOW YOU?

YEAH! WE WENT TO SCHOOL TOGETHER.

SAM HARTFORD.

"SAMMY" HARTFORD?

[SAM LAUGHS] I DO REMEMBER YOU.

HEY, I PLAY LEAD GUITAR IN A BAND IN TOWN.

WE PLAY ALL OF YOUR HITS.

I SAW AN INTERVIEW YOU DID ONCE, WHERE YOU SAID YOU'D COME HOME TO MILLTOWN WHEN PIGS FLY.

SKY SEEMS CLEAR OF SWINE.

[CHUCKLING]

SARAH STANDOR?

BRADLEY SUTTONS.

YOU LOOK SO DIFFERENT!

WELL, YOU SEEM TO HAVE OUTGROWN YOUR AWKWARD PHASE, TOO.

BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S TRUE.

YOU NEVER HAD AN AWKWARD PHASE. YOU'RE JUST HANDSOME AS EVER.

WHAT BRINGS YOU TO TOWN?

I'M SELLING MY PARENTS' HOUSE.

I SHOULD HAVE DEALT WITH IT YEARS AGO, BUT I NEVER FOUND THE TIME TO GET BACK HERE.

WELL, TIME DOES FLY WHEN YOU'RE BUSY WINNING GRAMMYS, BECOMING A SUPERSTAR.

WE'RE ALL REAL PROUD OF YOU.

THANKS.

YOU KNOW, I'VE BEEN KEEPING UP YOUR MOTHER'S FLOWER GARDEN.

THAT'S REAL NICE OF YOU.

SHE WOULD'VE APPRECIATED THAT.

MM, FELT LIKE IT WAS THE LEAST I COULD DO FOR HER.

SHE'S THE ONE WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO PLANT AND GROW FLOWERS, AND NOW I HAVE A BIG GARDEN OUT BACK.

I SUPPLY THE FLOWERS FOR MOST OF THE LOCAL FLORISTS.

YOUR FAMILY STILL RAISING RACE HORSES?

MY PARENTS MOVED TO FLORIDA.

THIS PLACE IS A HORSE-RESCUE RANCH NOW.

PEOPLE GIVE ME THEIR OLD HORSES AND SICK HORSES, AND I TAKE CARE OF THEM.

SO YOU STAYED IN MILLTOWN?

I STAYED IN MILLTOWN.

WHY?

[LAUGHS]

WHY NOT?

YOU MARRIED? KIDS?

NO. [LAUGHS]

NO, NOT YET.

I WENT TO VETERINARY SCHOOL, AND GOT BUSY WITH THE RANCH, AND GUESS I JUST FORGOT TO GET MARRIED AND HAVE CHILDREN.

WELL, DR. SARAH STANDOR, I'M GLAD I HAD THE GOOD SENSE TO MARRY YOU WHEN I DID.

IT WAS A NO-BRAINER.

IT WAS CLEAR I WAS GONNA BE VERY SUCCESSFUL.

I'M... I'M A BIG FAN. LOVE TO MEET HER.

NO.

MM-HMM.

YOU KNOW, YOU ASKED ME WHY I STAYED HERE IN MILLTOWN.

WELL... THAT'S WHY I STAYED.

STAYED FOR THE "SIMPLER TIMES."

RIGHT.

I WAS THINKING MAYBE WE COULD DO LUNCH, CATCH UP.

"DO" LUNCH?

[LAUGHING] IT'S JUST AN EXPRESSION.

WELL, RIGHT NOW, LUNCH FOR ME IS A SANDWICH IN ONE HAND AND A HAMMER IN THE OTHER.

I'VE GOT ABOUT A MILE OF THIS FENCE THAT NEEDS MENDING.

WELL, YOU'VE GOT FENCES TO MEND AND I'M MONTHS LATE DELIVERING A NEW ALBUM, BUT I THINK WE CAN SPARE AN HOUR TO CATCH UP.

WHAT DO YOU SAY?

OKAY.

MEET ME HERE TOMORROW, 10:00 A.M., WE'LL GO GET ADAM, AND WE WILL "DO" LUNCH.

SHE WEARS A LOT OF BLACK.

WAIT. YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR FIANCEE'S FAVORITE FLOWER, HER FAVORITE FLAVOR, OR FAVORITE COLOR?

WELL, YOU'D BETTER.

HEY, MONICA.

WE'RE GONNA NEED A CAKE FOR A WEDDIN'.

YOU FINALLY DECIDED TO SETTLE DOWN?

WELL, WHO'S THE LUCKY...

...CAKE?

YEP! CAKE! 'CAUSE THAT'S WHATCHA DO HERE, RIGHT, MONICA?

UH... YES, OF COURSE. WE DO CAKES!

GOOD, 'CAUSE BRADLEY IS GONNA NEED A CAKE FOR HIS WEDDING.

I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND CATHERINE.

I THINK Y'ALL ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER.

I ALWAYS KNEW YOU'D BE FAMOUS.

SO!

WHEN IS THE BIG DAY?

JUNE 1ST.

WHOO...

THAT'S ONLY A COUPLE OF WEEKS AWAY.

BUT, FOR YOU, I'LL MAKE IT WORK.

THANK YOU, MONICA.

I'LL TAKE THE COCONUT.

YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT ONE!

CATHERINE MANN IS ALLERGIC TO COCONUT.

SHE IS?

SHE SAID SO, ON THE TONIGHT SHOW.

TWO YEARS AGO.

OKAY. NO COCONUT.

SO? HOW MANY LAYERS DO WE WANT?

I DON'T KNOW, UM... TWO?

TWO.

JUST TWO?

[CURTAIN MOTOR WHIRRING]

[WOMEN GASPING]

OH! IT'S PERFECT.

SHE IS SO RIGHT.

ALTHOUGH...

DO YOU THINK IT COULD BE TALLER?

YES.

OF COURSE.

BUT HOW WILL YOU GET IT THERE?

ALL THE WAY TO ITALY? IT WILL FALL OVER.

I WILL FLY YOU ON A PRIVATE JET, AND YOU CAN BAKE IT THERE.

IS THAT NECESSARY?

YOU ONLY GET MARRIED ONCE.

[CHUCKLES] SHE'S RIGHT.

[HORSE WHINNIES]

BACK UP.

THERE YOU GO, BUDDY.

WHOA.

[HORSE WHINNIES]

YEAH. YEAH.

LET'S GO. YEAH.

THERE YOU GO.

NO, I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE ANOTHER MESSAGE.

I JUST...

OKAY, FINE.

PLEASE TELL THEM SARAH STANDOR CALLED AGAIN.

I'M STILL WAITING TO HEAR IF I GOT THE EQUINE RESCUE GRANT.

THE BANK'S GONNA FORECLOSE ON MY PROPERTY IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS.

I GOT 18 HORSES WHO WON'T HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO...

OKAY. YEAH.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

[BEEP]

[SIGHING]

YOU LIKE LIVING ON A RANCH ALL ALONE?

I'M NOT ALONE.

I GOT MY HORSES AND MY DOGS AND MY FLOWERS.

IS THAT ENOUGH?

[BOARDS THUD]

NO. BUT I WANT WHAT MY PARENTS HAVE, AND THAT DOESN'T COME ALONG EVERY DAY.

AH.

TRUE LOVE?

OH, COME ON! YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN TRUE LOVE?

I THINK YOU FIND SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT.

SOMEONE WHOSE COMPANY YOU ENJOY, WHO LIKES THE SAME THINGS YOU LIKE, WANTS THE SAME THINGS YOU WANT.

AFTER THAT, IT'S HARD WORK AND COMPROMISE.

I WANT SOMEONE WHO'S GONNA LOVE ME FOREVER NO MATTER WHAT, WHO WANTS TO WALK THROUGH LIFE LEANING UP AGAINST ME SO NEITHER ONE OF US FALLS.

WELL, THAT SOUNDS REAL ROMANTIC...

BUT NOT VERY REALISTIC.

I AGREE, IT IS RARE.

PLUS, YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT AT IT, AND EVEN THEN, YOU GOT TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE TO RECOGNIZE IT AND CHOOSE IT AND FIGHT FOR IT.

SO THIS, UH, MAGICAL RELATIONSHIP, IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE IN A LIFETIME?

YUP.

AND YOU GOT TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME, OR YOU MISS IT?

YEP.

I THINK YOU'VE READ TOO MANY ROMANCE NOVELS.

[LAUGHS]

MAYBE, BUT I'M NOT GONNA SETTLE FOR LESS.

WELL, I HOPE YOU GET YOUR HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER.

YOU DESERVE IT.

[HORSE WHINNYING]

SO YOU'RE REALLY GONNA GET MARRIED HERE?

WELL...

WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO SOME SERIOUS CLEANING UP.

YOU GOT THAT?

COME ON.

HEY, HEY! COME HERE.

GO!

[BRADLEY]: I WIN.

AGH!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

HOW DO YOU LIKE IT?

TAKE THAT!

[LAUGHING]

NOW, WHY DID YOU BRING ME ALL THE WAY OUT HERE?

WELL, YOU'VE BEEN WORKING SO HARD, I THOUGHT WE'D TAKE A NIGHT OFF AND GO TO THE MOVIES.

THE MOVIES?

COWBOY STYLE.

LIE BACK.

ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

IT STARS THE BIG AND LITTLE DIPPER IN ONE OF THEIR BEST ADVENTURES.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE.

I REMEMBER WATCHING IT WHEN I WAS A KID.

THIS IS THE SEQUEL.

YOU KNOW, I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO YOU PLAY YOUR NEW SONGS AT NIGHT.

THEY SOUND REAL GOOD.

THEY REMIND ME A LOT OF THE ONES YOU WROTE WHEN YOU WERE FIRST STARTING OUT.

YOU KNOW, THAT TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY, MAKE YOU FEEL SOMETHING.

YOU REALLY THINK SO?

WELL, WHY WOULD I SAY IT IF IT WASN'T TRUE?

THE WORLD I LIVE IN IS FULL OF PEOPLE WHO TELL ME WHAT THEY THINK I WANT TO HEAR.

I'LL NEVER DO THAT.

GOOD.

[SIGHS]

SO, CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING TRUTHFULLY?

SURE.

THAT HAT.

WHAT ABOUT IT?

WELL, YOU THINK IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A COWBOY, BUT...

I LOVE THIS HAT, OKAY?

IT'S NEW.

MY MANAGER, HANK, SENT IT TO ME FOR MY TOUR.

OKAY, WELL, THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

A REAL COWBOY WOULD NEVER WEAR A NEW HAT.

HEY...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

[CHUCKLES]

THAT'S BETTER.

OH, MAN.

YOU KNOW, THIS WAS A GOOD PLACE TO GROW UP.

WELL, I'M GLAD YOU REMEMBER THAT.

YOU AND CATHERINE TALKED ABOUT WHERE YOU WANT TO SETTLE DOWN, RAISE YOUR CHILDREN?

I DON'T KNOW IF CATHERINE WANTS TO HAVE CHILDREN.

DO YOU?

SURE.

WELL...

YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED, BUT YOU HAVEN'T DISCUSSED WHETHER YOU WANT A FAMILY?

WELL, CELEBRITIES ARE AN ODD BREED.

I AM NOT A CELEBRITY.

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU LAST NIGHT?

I WAITED...

GOOD MORNING.

MR. FERGO, I WASN'T EXPECTING YOU.

WELL, I CAME BY TO DELIVER SOME GOOD NEWS.

WE GOT A SOLID OFFER ON YOUR HOUSE.

THEY WANT TO MOVE IN RIGHT AWAY.

IT'S AN ALL-CASH OFFER.

I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO SELL.

I WAS THINKING I MIGHT JUST KEEP THE HOUSE.

WELL, THAT'S GOOD NEWS.

YEAH, I'M BEGINNING TO SEE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HOLD ON TO YOUR ROOTS.

WELL, MAYBE YOU CAN TALK SOME SENSE INTO YOUR NEIGHBOR.

SHE'S GOING TO LOSE HER RANCH SOON IF SHE DOESN'T FIGURE OUT A WAY TO PAY HER MORTGAGE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

WELL, SHE'S WAITING FOR SOME FUNDING TO COME IN, BUT SHE'S WAY BEHIND ON HER PAYMENTS.

THE PEOPLE LEAVE HER THEIR SICK OR OLD HORSES TO TAKE CARE OF, THEY DON'T PAY THEIR BILLS, AND SHE GETS STUCK.

HUH...

AND HER FLOWER BUSINESS ISN'T ENOUGH TO CARRY THE RANCH.

IS THAT RIGHT?

MORNING.

HEY.

LAST NIGHT WAS FUN.

I TRIED TO FIND YOU WHEN I WAS LEAVING, BUT...

OH, YEAH, SORRY, I HAD TO DUCK OUT.

I... I WAS EXHAUSTED, AND I GOT SO MUCH WORK TO GET DONE.

WELL, I'LL GO GET MY TOOLS AND GET TO WORK ON THE FENCES.

NO, YOU TAKE THE DAY OFF.

IS EVERYTHING OKAY?

EVERYTHING'S FINE.

I JUST... GOT TO GET THIS DONE.

UH...

YOU KNOW, I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AFTER MY YARD AND MY FLOWERS ALL THESE YEARS.

IT'S NOT A PROBLEM.

YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WERE GREAT NEIGHBORS TO US.

WELL, I-I WANTED TO PAY YOU FOR THE WORK THAT YOU DID.

I FEEL LIKE IT'S ONLY FAIR...

NO, NO, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE UP TO.

YOU DO IT IN SPITE OF THE FEAR, BECAUSE A LIFE WITHOUT LOVE, THAT'S JUST HALF A LIFE.

AND YOU DON'T GET MARRIED 'CAUSE YOU LIKE THE SAME THINGS, AND 'CAUSE YOU LIVE SIMILAR LIFESTYLES.

YOU GET MARRIED BECAUSE YOU CAN'T STAND THE THOUGHT OF NOT BEING TOGETHER.

YOU GET MARRIED BECAUSE YOU LOVE THE OTHER PERSON WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART!

NO, THAT'S...

THAT'S JUST A FANTASY.

I CAN'T MARRY YOU.

OF COURSE YOU CAN.

DO YOU LOVE ME?

OF COURSE I DO.

WHY?

BECAUSE WE'RE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER.

WE UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER.

WE WANT THE SAME THINGS.

I'M NOT GOING TO TOUR FOR A WHILE.

I'M GOING TO LIVE HERE, PLAY LOCALLY, BUILD A STUDIO, AND WRITE MUSIC.

THAT'S SO SILLY.

YOUR CAREER IS ON FIRE, YOU'RE GAINING MOMENTUM...

CATHERINE.

I CARE ABOUT YOU, I DO.

BUT IT'S JUST NOT ENOUGH.

I'M SORRY.

I'M NOT SURE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

WELL...

I WAS THINKING WE COULD RENEW OUR VOWS.

WHAT?

WE GOT MARRIED WHEN WE WERE KIDS.

I THINK THAT WAS OUR ONE CHANCE AT TRUE LOVE.

TRUE LOVE, HUH?

WELL, I DON'T KNOW.

THAT'S ROMANTIC, NOT REALISTIC.

I AGREE...
