A Valentine's Match (2020) Script

♪ ♪ Downloaded from YTS.MX Official YIFY movies site: YTS.MX

Just pretend like we're two friends.

Two friends.

I like that.

So, we do not need the script?

No, we need the script.

Stick to the script, just conversational.

Two friends... with lines.

Uh, all right everyone.

Let's settle.

Thank you.

We are rolling. Rolling.

And... action.

Welcome to A Taste of Class, where we explore the best hidden restaurants in the US.

I'm your host, Natalie Simmons.

I'm here today with Chef Henri.

[small laugh]

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I can feel the love in the air.

Can't you?

Yes. It is a time for love.

It is also a time for roulade.

Chef Henri's roulade is rumoured to be the best in the country.

[laughs] Merci.

I can't wait to taste it.

Lead the way.

And cut!

All right, moving on.

Wait, wait, wait...

Are we getting a reflection from this window?

I didn't see anything on the monitor.

Are you sure?

Will you just humour me?

I think we need to go again.

Is that "time for love" line working?

He feels a little forced.

Ah, ah... It's, it's fine.

I want to do another one.

Is makeup around?

We can if you want, but I think we are good.

Here, there's a script for the kitchen set...

Thank you, thank you.

Okay.

Okay, hi.

"Wow, this roulade tastes like my grandmother's recipe."

Uh, let's add a "just" and cut "recipe."

"This roulade tastes just like my grandmother's." Thank you.

At least that way it sounds like I have a French grandmother.

Oh, thank you so much.

Oh, yeah, how about you ad lib a little.

You know, just have fun with it.

Brooks, I'm in three-inch heels, I can't breathe in this dress, and I'm freezing my butt off.

This show is not about fun, this show is about the unreachable.

People want to want to want something that they can't have.

Thank you.

Copy that.

Oh, by the way.

Tim called, he said he wants to see you after wrap.

I mean, can it wait until Wednesday?

We're really behind.

He says it needs to be today.

Oh.

Okay.

Fired?

I'm sorry, Natalie.

Wait, you're actually firing me?

You know the ratings haven't been what we hoped.

Well, let's hire new writers.

Or I'll start writing some of the episodes.

I appreciate that, but you're already doing way more than any other host.

Did they give you a reason other than ratings?

They feel like you've lost your authenticity.

My authenticity?

Jeez.

You know I love you, Natalie.

But I can't disagree.

Okay, well so what am I missing?

You just don't have the same "oomph" anymore.

"Oomph," that's great.

What does that mean?

I don't know, it just seems like you're not having fun anymore, and it shows.

I'm sorry.

[sadly] I'm fun. I golf!

I have just as much fun as anybody else in this business.

That's a bit of a stretch.

Really?

Well, I can look like I'm having fun.

I can look like I'm having the time of my life.

Do you think I should call Tim and tell him that?

Um, I'd say yes if I thought he'd change his mind, but...

What am I gonna do?

Have the ice cream that I brought you.

Brooks, you're a good boyfriend, but I don't like chocolate ice cream, remember?

Oh, right.

I knew that.

I mean, it'd be one thing if I hated my job, but I love my job.

Getting to meet new people, getting people to open up and talk about things they never normally would.

Right.

[phone notification dings]

Okay. I just need to do better. If people want perfect, I can do perfect.

That's what I do.

Mm-hmm.

This is just a temporary setback.

Right.

No reason I can't bounce.

Right. Back.

[exhales]

Right.

I mean, I could spin being fired, right?

[exhales]

[teary] I'm never going to work again, am I?

Don't worry.

Call your mom, she always cheers you up.

Well that's just poppycock.

Poppycock, is that even a word anymore, Mom?

And what are you doing about getting another job?

Unemployment is not a joke, Natalie.

I know, mother.

I don't know what I'm going to do.

Apparently, I've lost my authenticity.

Oh.

What? What "oh?"

Well, honey. I've seen your shows, and um, you used to be so much more you.

You didn't hide from anything until...

Until what?

What... what am I hiding from?

Well, I can only think of one thing.

Zach Williams.

I'm not hiding from Zach Williams.

That was ages ago.

Mm-hmm.

And for that entire time, you have always refused to talk about him, find out what's going on in his life, even when you've come home.

Which hasn't been often, by the way.

Mom, I've been home.

I came home...

That Christmas.

Uh, no, honey.

We came to you that Christmas.

But if you book a flight today, you could make it in time for the Valentine's Day festival.

Ah, that is the last event I would want to come home for.

Besides, I have a boyfriend.

[flatly] Mm-hmm.

You two have plans for Valentine's Day?

No, he has a shoot that day, but you know.

It's the principle of matter.

Hello? Mom?

Mom?

Oh, I'm sorry, honey.

[sighs]

I'm distracted.

I've been busy working on this piece for the auction.

Oh, you and Sue still on the festival planning committee?

You know, Sue Williams, Zach's mother?

See, I can talk about Zach Williams.

Co-chairs, as always.

How's that going?

Oh, it's good.

We're not as close as we used to be since you two broke up, but we're friends.

You know what, honey?

Don't take my word for it, but I think that if you want to get your authenticity back, you are going to have to face what you've been running from.

And half inch serrated flange nuts.

Yeah, looks like we've got three boxes and two, four, eight single units.

Okay, great.

That does it.

Hey, do you mind holding down the fort for the afternoon?

Yeah, I've got you.

Thanks.

So, is there going to be a second?

A second?

Date.

That thing you went on last night?

Right.

That.

Oh, don't say that.

Jess is not going to be happy.

Why am I not going to be happy?

How do you always do that?

How does she always do that?

Hi, husband.

Hi, Zach.

Hi.

Don't hate me, she was really great.

I don't hate you.

I love you.

And so did she.

Just like all the others, I might add.

And I really appreciate you setting me up.

She was really...

Great.

I heard.

And she is.

Hey, don't worry about it, man.

True love is hard to find.

Aww!

Honey, you're so sweet.

Kisses.

Mwah.

Okay, I am out.

There is only so much gush that one man can take for the day.

Uh, you can't fool me.

You're an artist.

There's a romantic in there somewhere.

Hmm.

I thought I owned a hardware store.

I'll be in the studio if anyone needs me.

[doorbell jingles]

That wasn't gushy.

Not even a little bit.

Nah, it was like a minor thing.

What is he talking about?

Seriously. We gotta work it up next time we see him.

We'll show him some gushy. Oh yeah, we gonna show him some gushy.

Yeah.

Okay, let's see.

Um, Bob Stoddard found this lovely little flower mart today that is willing to donate for the bouquet arranging contest today.

Good.

And Jenny Stoltz has volunteered for the valentine decorating station.

Perfect.

How is the puppy kissing booth coming along?

Oh, um, you know, I don't have everything for that yet, but I think Natalie will be able to help me.

Oh, she's coming home for a couple of weeks.

Oh, that's great.

Oh, you must be so happy.

Yes, I am.

Okay, Sue?

You're doing that thing again?

What thing?

That disappearing lip thing.

Oh no, I don't have disappearing lips.

Yes, you do. No, I don't.

Yes, you do. No, I don't.

Yes, you do. No, I don't.

Yes, you do. No, I don't.

Sue, I know you I know there's something that you want to say.

No, there isn't.

Don't make me drag it out of you.

Well, if you want to know the truth, it hasn't been easy.

What hasn't been easy?

Well I just think, especially since Natalie's coming home for the festival... I just...

Okay.

Sue, what's going on?

There's something I think you should know.

You know, I wish you would've told me that a long time ago.

Well, it was Zach's secret to tell, and it still is, unfortunately.

Well, it's too bad.

I always thought they were so good together.

Yeah.

Welcome home, sunshine. Good to have you back.

Thank you.

So you guys started decorating already.

Oh, well it is my favourite time of year.

Oh, woah.

Mom, I thought you were going to redecorate.

Oh, I just didn't have the heart.

There's just so much life in this room.

Or, "bad collage" is another way of putting it.

Well, I love it.

It reminds me of the old Natalie.

Um, oh, Honey, do you think you could help me run some errands while you're here in town?

Yeah, sure.

Great. I just happen to have a list handy.

Puppy Kissing booth detail.

Now you can probably get most of these things down at the hardware store.

Okay.

Um, I'll get started.

Uh, you're going to go now?

Yeah, is that okay?

Well, I just thought you'd go tomorrow, after you settle in.

No, I think I'd rather do this now and then get settled in later.

I've got a lot of phone calls to make this afternoon.

Really?

Yeah, that whole "serious unemployment" thing, remember?

No, I mean, you really want to go down to the hardware store right now?

Is there a problem with me going to the hardware store right now?

No, no.

Now's good.

Okay.

Are you going to go like that?

Well, I thought you might want to slip into something a little more comfortable.

Who?

I think you know who.

So, you saw Zach.

Yes.

And how did it go?

Awkward.

Why didn't you tell me that he gave up his art career and bought a hardware store?

Well, I just thought that would add insult to injury.

Yeah.

It does.

I'm sorry.

Whatever.

He can buy a hardware store, he could buy a snow cone factory for all I care.

A snow cone factory?

Sure.

Making snow cones.

What do I care, see? I'm letting it go.

I don't even want to talk about it anymore.

Oh boy.

But why a hardware store?

I mean honestly, of all the things that he could...

And if he quit his art career, then why didn't he come back...

You know what? It doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter.

I'm only home to face my fears and let it go.

Which shouldn't be that difficult, considering I'm in love with someone else.

Love?

Wow, that's a new development.

Yeah, well, you know.

Deep like, at least.

Brooks is amazing.

Oh well, I wouldn't know, since

Oh, sorry honey, I have to get that.

Uh... Sue.

Hi, Sue.

What's up?

Oh no, no, we have to have the auction.

That is what funds the entire Valentine's Day festival for next year.

Natalie?

Um, well.

I... I... I don't know. No.

But I'll ask her. Sure, I'll ask her.

Okay, bye.

Mom, I don't want to work while I'm here.

Well, we only have one person, and you know we always have two.

And the auction, it funds the entire event for the next year.

Yes, I know.

Please?

The last item on the agenda is the auction.

Unfortunately, Rich and June had to drop out this year, so Natalie has graciously volunteered.

And do we have a partner?

Yes.

We do.

Here he is.

Zach.

You and Natalie will be this year's auction team.

Great.

Problem solved.

[laughs]

Meeting adjourned.

[whispers] I am not doing this.

Honey, just breathe.

And remember why you came home.

To face your fears.

And besides, you were just convincing me that you had moved on.

I have, of course I have.

Well, good.

Then there's not a problem.

I know you and Sue are all worked up about the Valentine's thing, but cupids you are not.

Why didn't you tell me that Natalie was going to be here?

Oh, I'm sorry, I guess I just forgot.

Oh, and Natalie?

Yes?

Thank you so much for your help.

Sure, of course.

Oh. And Zach, you too.

I don't know what we would've done without you two.

Hi, I just want to introduce myself.

Oh, okay.

And you're going to be going to Steve's later?

Oh, well, we'd love to, but...

We have festival business.

But do you know what?

Why don't all of you go?

Oh.

Oh, what a great idea. Because we have a lot of work to do.

Yes, we do.

Yeah, we should go do that. We better get to it.

Oh, you're the one who... I mean, great.

Uh....

Do you want to ride with us?

Sure, yeah. Thanks.

No, that'd be great, but we have decorations in the back, right?

Yeah.

Uh...

You're welcome to ride with me.

Sure.

Okay.

Natalie's the one who was engaged to Zach?

Yep.

So, I totally blew that, didn't I?

It's okay.

You look cute sweating bullets.

Oh wow, this is going to be awkward.

So now you're a big TV star.

Oh.

Well, I think star's overstating it, but I do work some.

I'm just your average TV host and I've been really lucky.

I'm sure it's more than just luck.

Yeah, I've worked really hard actually, over the last couple of years that, um...

I've been working with editors and writing some of the episodes.

Yup.

It's not Jenny's anymore?

Nope.

But the burgers are still the same.

Oh, good.

Hey.

So, Steve says we can pick up the sound equipment anytime.

I've got the keys to the store, do you think you could give me a hand when we're done?

Sure. Sweet.

Oh, and maybe you and Natalie could pick up the rest of the decorations at the hall?

If that's okay with you, and then I can give you a ride home afterward?

Sure, that sounds great.

Natalie, do you want to try one of my fries?

They're amazing.

Oh, thank you, no.

Let's just say it didn't end in the best possible way.

Well, come on man.

What happened?

[sighs]

Well, it's a little involved, but...

The Reader's Digest version is...

He went to art school instead of marrying me.

What?

I don't understand.

Why couldn't you do both?

That was what I wanted to know.

What happened?

Well, the plan was for us to get married and live right here in Oregon, but right before the wedding I got an offer for a job in San Francisco to be on a show, and then he got accepted to this fancy graduate program in Europe.

For art?

Yeah.

I offered to go with him, you know, I was the one who encouraged him to apply, and I said I would go.

But he just told me that he...

He wanted to focus all of his attention on art, full time.

Oh.

Evidenced by the fact that he now makes a living in hardware.

Wow.

Not good.

Yeah.

I guess really in the end, he just...

If I'm honest, he just didn't love me enough to marry me, and he took the easy way out.

End of story.

That doesn't seem like Zach.

Ergo the name of the auction, "Close To Your Heart Auction."

Okay, it's just skydiving, truffle hunting lessons, hot yoga coupons?

It's not something the people in this town are going to go for.

Well, I guess you would know.

And what is that supposed to mean?

Nothing, just, you know.

You're the one who stayed, so you would know.

Well, you're the one who left because it wasn't extreme enough.

So, I guess you would know.

[slurping]

Here, there's a little bit left.

You can take it. No, I don't want any more.

I'm not- I don't want any-

Oh! Ugh!

Yes, thank you.

Thank you.

It's good to see you.

This quilt is so pretty.

Are you sure you want to give it away?

I could always make another one.

I've got plenty of time on my hands these days.

Oh, and I've got these nice shortbread cookies too.

I'll get them.

Oh, these darn knees of mine.

You know where they are, don't ya?

Very Valentine's.

Is something wrong?

No, nothing's wrong.

You're the nicest guy in the world.

What could possibly be wrong, except that I've been avoiding coming home for years because I didn't want to see my first love who broke my heart and now I'm stuck in this situation with you where we're running all over town picking up things for a Valentine's auction, while my boyfriend, who I love very much, thank you, is actually home, too busy to come here and be with me, and I'm stuck here with you, the man everybody thinks is the nicest guy in the world.

Well, I completely agree with you.

Zach is the most infuriating person ever.

He's just infuriating.

Hey, I don't have to worry about Zach, do I?

What? No, no, of course you don't. No.

No. There's nothing for you to worry about.

No, the dance is Eric and Jess.

Hey.

Ma'am.

Hey.

You folks ready to do some high quality pickin'?

Sure are.

Okay.

Some of the things in here are more than 100 years old.

Well, what can you spare?

Pfft.

Take whatever you want.

All it's been doing is gathering dust.

So put 'em to good use.

We really appreciate that.

Glad I could help out.

You just come get me if you have any questions.

Thank you. Thanks, Sam.

Woah!

Look at all this.

Aw, these are amazing.

Look at these old books.

The Odyssey...

Oh, Shakespeare's Sonnets.

Look at this, this is great.

It was published in 1941.

Oh, wow. Look at that.

Oh...

Oh, these have to be over 50 years old.

"Dear Clara, loving you always and forever...

"Your Adoring Jed."

February 14th, 1931.

Aw, it's so romantic.

Touching.

Yeah.

Ah, what do we have here?

I don't know what these have to do with Valentine's Day, other than being pink.

Hmm.

Well, they're for warming your feet on a cold winter's night.

Is that right?

Yes, that's right.

As a matter of fact, I think Clara knit these for Jed.

For Jed?

Yes.

Well, you see... uh...

Clara used to take Jed out dancing every night.

But Jed's poor feet just hurt somethin' awful every time, every time.

So she knit these for him so that he could come home and slip them on by the fire, and they could snuggle up.

Oh, that was mighty nice of Clara.

It certainly was.

She's a mighty nice lady.

Look at this.

She even, she even wrapped it up with a little bit of lavender.

[clicks tongue]

Just for good luck.

[laughs]

How do I always miss these things?

Here.

[laughs]

Hmm.

What?

Nothing.

Tell me.

No, I'm overthinking.

Well, I like overthinking, especially when you do it.

It's cute.

This just reminds me of how we used to be.

It's nice.

Yeah. We used to have a lot of fun.

Yeah, we really did.

I used to be so much more comfortable in my own skin here.

Used to be?

Yeah.

I guess I've been, um...

Been accused of being inauthentic lately.

That's interesting.

What?

Well, you've always been the most ambitious person I've ever known.

But the girl I remember knew exactly who she was.

Well, she's still in here.

Somewhere.

Good.

You always brought out the best in me, Zach.

Guess you still do.

I will take that as a compliment.

[sighs]

Boy.

Guess we didn't need truffle hunting after all.

Oh, oh.

[in posh accent] We really hit the jackpot, sir.

We really, really did. Didn't we?

We really did.

You'll have to excuse me, I can't see anything around here.

This stuff is going to be great.

Glad you think so.

How did you find out about this place?

It's sort of something I've gotten into.

Things in barns?

Actually, they call it "picking."

Oh, right.

Kind of a departure from your art, isn't it?

Sort of something I fell into after I started working at the hardware store.

Right.

About that, uh... how did that get... started?

Well, I wasn't making a living as an artist, needed a job.

So.

So, home supply?

First thing you thought of?

Well, it's honest work.

Yes.

And you know me, I've always known my way around tools and certainly spent enough time in the hardware store.

That's true.

So, I was working there, and kind of serendipitous, actually.

So how so?

Well, when I first started working at the store, the owner asked me to go up to the attic and clear it out of all the junk.

That's what he called it.

It turns out that the store, about 150 years ago, used to be a blacksmith shop.

Then turn of the century was general store, and in the 1950s, it became what it is now.

The attic was just filled to the rafters with all these treasures from the last centuries.

And I thought to myself, I can do something with this stuff.

I love it. That's so great.

You've always been so good at seeing beyond the surface of something and knowing its true value.

That's a nice way of putting it.

Thanks. Sure.

[phone notification beeps]

Oh.

Is that your boyfriend?

Yeah.

I'll, uh, I'll get another load.

Okay. I'll meet you back there.

[sighs]

[scraping]

So, you don't think you should tell her the truth?

[sighs]

How am I supposed to do that?

I guess there's no real way of doing it except to do it.

Yeah well, what's the point?

I mean, she has a boyfriend, Dad.

Well, that's true.

But I still think you should.

She deserves to know, whether she has a boyfriend or not.

I'm with your mom.

What... what... what's the hesitation, son?

We had our chance.

I just, I don't see the point in digging up the past.

Well, the point is, you still have feelings for her.

Am I right?

[sighs]

This stuff is incredible.

I'm predicting best auction ever.

Well, we did raid every barn in Oregon for the past three days.

I'm sure Zach knows every barn, shed, and storage unit within a 200-mile radius.

200? That's nothing.

I know all the barns in this country.

If you do say so yourself.

All I'm saying is I'm pretty well connected if you need some antiques.

We could use something to spruce up the house.

Maybe for Valentine's Day?

Okay, see?

Now you got me into trouble.

I told you not to remind her of your picking obsession.

My girl knows how to shop.

I call it having good taste.

My mistake.

"Good taste."

"Good taste."

Mmm.

So, you and Zach seem to be getting along a lot better.

Uh, yeah.

N-no.

No, I... I have a boyfriend.

Is it serious?

Yeah.

Yeah, it's... sort of.

I don't know how something can be sort of serious.

Well, you know.

It's like, he's...

We've been together a long time and we work really well together, and he's smart, and ambitious, um...

But?

But, I mean, it's not that, like, mmm feeling that, you know.

You know, I mean, you're in love.

You know what I mean.

Yeah.

Yeah.

I do.

Anyway.

Well, this is the last of it.

Is everything good?

Yeah, great.

Yeah, things are great.

But Zach, why don't I see any of your stuff here?

Oh, uh... I don't know if anyone wants to bid on my work.

What do you... what do you mean, your work?

I thought you gave up your art.

Ah, I didn't say that.

I just don't do it professionally.

But he should, because his stuff is incredible.

Really.

Yeah. You haven't seen any of Zach's work?

Not in a very long time.

Zach, you gotta show her your stuff.

Yeah. I really would like to see it.

Yeah. I'd be happy to show it to you.

Just, you know, tell me when.

Well, we're... we're basically done here, um...

How about now?

Let me get the lights.

[gasps]

Oh, Zach.

Wow.

You didn't give up on your art at all.

Not completely.

This is amazing.

Oh, yeah.

Something new I made.

When did you start working with all these found materials?

About the same time I found the attic above the hardware store.

Guess the picking inspired the art and vice versa.

I'm glad you didn't give it up.

I just hope someone wants to bid on some of it.

Are you kidding me?

You'll be a huge success.

I like this.

This reminds me of Mount Kilimanjaro.

You know, we always said we'd climb it.

Yeah, it might've been on my mind when I made it.

Well, you've come a long way from Mr. Rickard's ceramics class.

Do you remember the mug you made me?

Yeah, the one with the E. B. White quote on it?

Yeah.

[Both] "Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder."

Wow, I'm... I'm... I'm surprised you remember that.

That was the first piece of art I ever made.

Hard to forget the first gift a boy ever gives you.

I'll take that as a compliment.

Yeah, please do.

Why didn't you do anything with your art?

Oh, I don't know.

It's hard to make a living as an artist, I guess.

Yeah, but what stopped you?

I guess I'm just too practical for my own good.

Well, I always believed in you.

I know you did.

Natalie, I...

Rain stopped. Oh, what?

Yeah, the rain stopped.

We should probably build the um...

[Both] Kissing booth.

Can I buy you a hot chocolate?

Yeah, great.

Oh, it looks so good.

It looks great.

And the weather cleared up perfectly.

I know.

If you'd have told me two weeks ago I was going to be building a kissing booth in the middle of a work week, I'd have said I was crazy.

...lucky.

Yes.

Lucky is better.

Joys of the small-town life, I guess.

Do you ever miss it?

Um, yeah.

But I love my career.

What would I do?

You know, I've seen all your shows.

Really?

Yeah, I mean it's not everyone who has a TV celebrity host for an ex-fiancée.

Well, I'll let you in on a secret.

This one's unemployed.

Really?

Yeah.

Why didn't you say anything?

Uh, well I don't know.

I haven't been home in so long and guess I just wanted to impress everybody and come home the hero.

So what happened?

Um, oomph.

I lost my oomph.

Your oomph?

Yeah.

What does that even mean?

I don't know.

I mean, I think it's that when I started it was about getting on better and better shows, and then it was about getting bigger and better ratings, and then it was about keeping the ratings and keeping all the balls in the air.

And then I was just running and racing and chasing and just became someone I didn't recognize.

Sounds like you got burned out.

So what were you chasing so hard?

I thought if I worked hard enough, I could finally become somebody that they wanted.

Instead of just being yourself?

Well I mean, in my business, people have an expectation of you to be an image, not a real person.

So, you can't.

I mean, you can.

It's a bad excuse.

Yeah. Instead of being who I really am.

Well, I can relate.

You know, hiding things because you want the world to see you a certain way.

Yeah.

Well, I think you're great. I would hire you in a second.

Thank you.

You did a great job, look at this.

Yeah.

Nice job, partner.

I'm glad we could do this and be... be friends.

Me too.

But there's actually something that I really need to tell you.

Okay.

Look, this isn't exactly the best timing, I know.

But I just...

Hey!

Finally found you guys.

We've got a problem.

What?

Just come.

Sure.

Everything is ruined.

Well, not everything.

Just quite a bit of everything.

What's left?

These made it out okay.

Aw, jeez.

We can still do this, right?

Yeah.

Yeah. We just need to get twice as much money for everything we're selling at the auction.

And no pressure, hon.

I mean, it's just that, you know, next year's...

...Next year's event depends on us.

Right.

Morning, sunshine.

Hey.

What are you doing here?

I thought maybe you'd like some company.

Ah, thanks.

How'd you know I'd be out here?

Ever since you were a little girl, if you ever needed to do some thinking, this is where I would find you.

[laughs]

Well, I did need to get out and clear my head.

[sighs]

Anything I can do to help?

I don't think so.

Everything we got for the auction is ruined and we don't have time to fix it.

It's nothing to lose sleep over.

It feels like it is.

I mean, that's not the only thing.

I lost my job, I literally got fired.

I just don't think I can face another failure right now, and spending so much time with Zach is like another thing.

Well, I remember when you were 15 years old and you were so excited for your art project.

You'd worked on it for weeks, collecting every leaf that every tree ever dropped.

Every colour under the sun.

You were so proud of it.

And then I left it on the porch.

And it rained, just like yesterday.

You were so upset, and after a minute of feeling defeated, you looked at it with a fresh perspective.

You saw how the colours ran together.

The paint merged with those old wet leaves.

So, you spattered it with more paint and sprayed it with the garden hose and loved every minute of it.

It wasn't a mess.

You saw something beautiful, unique, and one of a kind, created by accident.

So, you're telling me I need to see this whole thing as a beautiful mess, that's... that's it?

Well, the point is, you realize that life never really works out the way that you plan it.

But there's nothing wrong with having a little bit of fun as you go along.

Don't be sidetracked or derailed by all the little setbacks and it'll probably just turn out the way it should.

Thanks, Dad.

I got first place on that project, too.

[laughs]

Yes, you did.

And if memory serves, a nice young man came over and helped you mount it on an old wooden slat.

That's been really confusing too.

Well, your mom always says that confusion comes when you're trying to convince your head of something that your heart knows is a lie.

She's a wise woman.

This beautiful new quilt for $50.

It'll keep you warm.

Hey, Zach, what can you tell us about the quilt?

It was made by Miss Addy.

That's right, Miss Addy.

Hi, Addy. There she is!

Thank you so much for this donation.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Uh, Zach... is the local hardware store owner as you all know, but the closest to him know him as an amazing artist.

Some of his work is up here today.

We're going to get to the artwork later.

But first thing we want to do is get this quilt into the right home.

And I bet Zach has some really interesting information for us about the world of quilts.

Take it away, Zach.

Uh...

Uh, right.

What do you know?

Well, as you all know, quilting is very popular in this part of the states.

Um, you know some of our most dedicated quilters, Miss Addy included, spend up to $3,000 a year on supplies, and they have sometimes a... a hundred yards of fabric stored in their house.

Wow, that's an entire football field.

Yeah.

My fabric has its own bedroom.

[crowd laughs]

How about that?

I'm sure she's not the only one with a bedroom full of fabric, am I right? She's not.

I've actually seen Dolores's. She lives next door to us.

We have some pretty dedicated quilters in this town.

That is absolutely right.

In fact, Miss Addy was also telling me that this quilt is particularly special because it has some pieces of fabric that date back to the 19th century.

In fact, this heart here has swatches from her great grandmother's handkerchief, brought with her on the ship crossing from Poland about 150 years ago.

Aw, look at that.

A piece of local American history.

Who doesn't want to have that in their home?

You can make this a part of your Valentine's Day family tradition.

That's right.

Something new, something old.

And it's blue.

Maybe a wedding gift.

[laughs]

Okay, so.

Let's... let's start the bidding at $50.

Who's with me?

$50, that seems like a very fair price.

$50 for Addy's quilt.

$50.

Do I hear 75?

[Natalie] 75! I like the way you think thank you. Thank you very much.

I was a struggling artist, and you, you were ready to take on the world.

So, you gave up on us?

I did it for you.

I didn't want to hold you back.

No.

You did it because you were scared.

You did it because you were scared.

So maybe you were right.

Yeah.

Natalie.

Brooks?

Everything all right?

Hi, yeah.

It's great.

What are you?

[laughs]

What are you doing here?

I have some really great news.

I got you a meeting.

Woah, what?

Uh-huh.

A really good one.

So, I booked you a flight for tomorrow morning and I figured, why not give the good news in person?

[laughs]

Happy Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Your parents are great.

I love 'em.

Yeah, alright man.

Excuse me, can I get a sparkling water?

So...

Thank you.

Uh, tell me about this job.

It sounds amazing.

Mm-hmm.

So, it's a rich and famous lifestyle kind of show.

Rich and famous.

Yeah, I know.

Totally your thing, right?

Putting a ton of money into it, and it could be a real resume builder.

[exhales]

Can you believe this?

Like, the best Valentine's Day present you could've asked for, getting this meeting?

Yes, it is!

It's great.

And I can't believe you flew all the way here just to tell me this news in person.

It's very romantic.

Well, I was location scouting for another job just upstate.

They gave me a free hotel room and your town was just up the road, so I figured "why not?"

Oh. Right.

Why not.

Alicia?

Who is that?

Uh, Brooks.

The boyfriend.

Oh.

So, what did she say when you told her?

Let's just say she wasn't too happy.

So, where are you two at now?

Honestly?

I don't know.

My advice, man?

Don't make the same mistake twice.

It changes everything.

He lied to me.

But he did it so that you could go off and take that job in San Francisco.

Yeah, but he didn't even give me a choice, mom.

Would you have gone if he hadn't told you he was going to art school?

Maybe.

Maybe not.

I don't know.

I'm just... I'm really confused, I'm confused.

Are you sure you want to leave it like this?

Maybe you should give it a little time.

I can't give it time. I can't postpone this meeting.

This is a really big job if I get this.

I don't think that's what Jess is asking.

The real question is, what are you going to do about Zach?

Well, I... I can't take a chance on him if he wasn't willing to do the same thing for me.

And at least Brooks, at least Brooks is clear that he wants to be with me.

What do you think, Dad?

I think you should just follow that heart of yours, sunshine.

That's what I did with your mom, and I never regretted it.

[knocking at door]

Sorry, I hope I'm not interrupting.

No, come on in.

We, uh, we better get going.

Thanks. Hi.

Miss you.

I'll miss you too.

Love you.

Bye, Dad.

Listen to your heart, honey.

It's a cliché because it's true.

[doorbell rings]

Who could that be?

Zach.

Has Natalie left?

I brought you this.

Thank you.

Thought you might like it.

You can open it later.

I came to tell you something, too.

You were right.

You don't have to say this...

No, actually, I do.

I'm not like you.

I'm not fearless.

I was scared, and I...

Nat. Are you good to go?

Yeah.

Hi, I don't think we've officially met.

I'm Zach.

Brooks.

Nice meeting you.

Anyway, um, good luck.

Both of you.

Thanks, man.

Nice guy.

Yeah, he is.

Hey.

You okay?

Yeah, I'm just nervous, I guess.

Don't worry.

You got this.

'Kay.

[flight announcements]


What is that, anyway?

It's Mount Kilimanjaro.

Oh.

Cool.

Look.

I know your last show terminated you.

But I've seen your work, and it's exactly what I want.

Oh!

Now, since we're honing in on the rich and famous, I want you to bring what you did on "A Touch of Class", but even more so.

I want someone more aspirational.

Ideal, rather than real.

You really do that well.

You see, that really plays into the larger than life element that we're looking to lean into.

And you get to do it all.

Producing, directing, some episodes.

Writing the scripts.

You like that, don't you?

Yes.

[laughs]

You know, I just love people who strive for perfection.

Like me.

[laughs]

You know the drill.

[flatly] Yes.

Uh... I know exactly what you're talking about.

I knew you would.

So?

Do we have a deal?

You said what?

I said no.

Ha! You're kidding me, right?

No.

I told him that if I'm going to be in this business, I want to do something that I really believe in.

Where I can be authentically me and people can see that.

Natalie, people in this business don't care about any of that.

You know what I'm talking about, huh?

People don't want to see who you really are.

Well, he did.

Who did?

Lowenstein.

We are making a deal.

Okay, okay, that's great then.

Right?

Yeah.

Okay.

Hey, Brooks?

Uh-huh.

If I were to ask you when my birthday was, you would know, right?

What do you mean?

[laughs] What do you mean, what do I mean?

When's my birthday?

August.

It's April.

And yours is May 10th, and you were born at 8:00 in the morning, you had a little dog named Frisbee when you were a kid, and you only wear blended fabrics because cotton wrinkles too easily.

Okay, but what does any of this have to do with the meeting?

What's my favourite colour?

Are you serious right now?

Your favourite colour is blue.

What's mine?

I don't...

It's yellow, this mustard yellow.

It has been since the 10th grade, and this is my favourite quote.

"Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder."

You really didn't know that, did you?

Natalie.

I must've said this 100 times.

I just don't think you ever listen.

Are you breaking up with me right now?

Yes.

Okay, thank you.

You're welcome.

Good luck!

Excuse me.

I'm coming!

Oh, so sorry.

Excuse me.

Have a good flight.

Excuse me. I'm coming, I made it. I'm here.

Excuse me, sorry, sorry, sorry.

Excuse me, excuse me, sorry. Hey, wait, wait, wait.

I'm coming, I made it, okay.

I'm sorry, ma'am.

We've just shut the doors.

Yeah, but you just let that guy on.

Let me... let me on.

I'm sorry.

It's really important.

I can put you on standby for the next available flight.

I ca...

No!

I can't, I cannot be on standby anymore.

Excuse me?

Okay, so here's the deal. I have to get to this guy.

He was my first love, we almost got married, then he thought that I wanted this big career, so he lied to me, which is a different story.

But basically, I got the big career, except I lost myself in the meantime.

I didn't know who I was anymore, I was comparing myself to other people, I worked all the time, it's all I did was work, work, work, and then I lost my job. Which I thought was a really bad thing.

But my mom said everything happens for a reason, which I know, is like, "oh, everything happens for a reason."

You hear it all the time.

But it's true.

And if I hadn't seen that yellow mug, that was what made me realize, why do I want a big career if I don't have anybody to share it with?

At the expense of your heart and your soul?

You know what I mean?

It doesn't make any sense.

And Brooks?

I mean, Brooks never really got me.

Not the way Zach got me.

He just looks at you, and he sees you, and I love him so totally and so completely, and I have to tell him, but I can't tell him unless you open the door.

Ma'am, I think you should turn around.

Hi.

That's him. That's the guy.

Good thing you missed your flight, then.

Ahh!

I let you go once.

I'm not going to let you go again.

I know it's a little bit late, but will you be my Valentine?

Welcome to KACL, where we're playing the best hits of the 20s, 30s, and 40s.

Benny Goodman actually invented a dance for his, uh, Aunt Esther.

[laughs]

All right, I'm sorry.

Don't laugh at her, you're just egging her on.

I hear Zach's selling quite a bit of his work.

He has, but I think he enjoys doing this show even more.

Welcome to another episode of Treasure Hunters.

Where we travel the globe looking for treasures.

Maybe in your own garage.

This...

Oh, jeez. Sorry.

Those two.

I can't wait to see what their wedding's going to be like.

Shall we dance?

Sounds good to me.

I love me some band music.

Did you guys ever think that they would get back together again?

Well, you know what they say.

[Sue & Alicia] Mothers know best.
