I Do, I Do, I Do (2015) Script

Our wedding.

Yes Yes Yes.

It's beautiful.

Thanks. It's the children's ward, so...

...I wanted it to feel happy and full of light.

It's incredible. You nailed it.

And now that you're seeing Peter...

...everything's coming together for you.

Maybe, maybe not.

I'm still not 100% sure, more importantly...

I miss you so much. I really wish we...

...got to spend more time together.

Me too.

Licorice?

No, I have given up sugar.

-Sugar now? -Yes.

So no caffeine, no gluten, and now no sugar?

Peter says that sugar is "nature's sweetest poison."

I know. I read the book.

It's impossible to live by all of his rules.

Well, he feels you need to shift...

...your mind in order to shift your body.

I would give anything to spend one day with you...

...where we just threw caution to the...

...wind and lived in the moment like when we were kids.

-What's going on? -I don't know.

Poor guy.

Jaclyn Palmer...

Peter? What's happening? Are you okay?

Five months ago today was a magical day. My book...

...Happy Heart Health, hit...

...the New York Times' best-seller list...

...and you came to design the new addition to the children's wing.

I met you, and it was practically love at first sight.

I believe you are the sweetest, smartest...

...prettiest woman I'm ever going to meet.

Thank you.

The most romantic day of the year is coming...

...and I can't imagine spending...

...another day of my life without you.

Will you marry me?

On Valentine's Day?

Just... just a second.

This Valentine's Day? Like, a week from now?

Yes, I... I mean... I believe that when you decide...

No. When you know you're going to spend...

...the rest of your life with someone...

...then what's the point in waiting?

Yes?

You said "yes," but you weren't sure.

I mean, you were ambushed, you had to say yes.

Well, I was surprised.

Do you hear how your voice goes up at the end? "Yes"?

Like you're asking a question?

Look. Peter's a great guy.

Any woman would be lucky to marry him.

I agree! He's an amazing man.

He's a handsome, successful cardiologist...

...with a best-selling book...

...but you've only known him five months.

Well, sometimes, you just know.

Did you know statistics say married people are...

...happier and healthier than single people?

So marriage actually lowers cholesterol.

Yeah, I read chapter six.

"Marriage makes a heart grow stronger."

I love that chapter.

This has nothing to do with Peter wanting...

...to be named the new Chief of the hospital?

No! Well, yes, it probably looks good for him...

...to be settled down and married in order to be...

...considered for the position...

We are up... to 920,000...

...views in one week?

Are you in love with him?

Does he make your heart skip a beat?

Does your stomach do flips?

Do your knees get weak when you see him?

Well, I certainly hope not!

Those are the first symptoms of cardiac arrest.

Kate... look...

...I have dated some real losers and I am not...

...getting any younger. -So...

...you're making the safe choice.

What's wrong with that?

Nothing, I guess.

But don't you want to plan your wedding?

Peter's mother has arranged for a small family dinner...

...at this hotel where his family's been vacationing...

...for years.

-So just a small, tasteful affair? -Exactly.

Like that?

I thought this day would never come, but here you are!

You are the luckiest girl in the world!

-And Peter's a very lucky man! -Of course!

Peter's lucky, too. The Chief of the hospital and his wife,...

...the architect! Now that is a power couple.

And you must be our maid of honor? Jaclyn's sister...

-Kate. -Kate!

And you are our...

...photographer, right? Now, I was thinking that...

...you could sneak the photographs to the L.A. Times...

...and they could publish them in their high-profile wedding issue!

You know, this is really all too much.

I told her you might not want all this hoopla, but...

Of course she wants it! What bride doesn't...

...want a fairy-tale wedding? -Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Where's Peter?

He's running. Now, this afternoon you're gonna meet...

...the rest of the family and then tomorrow we're gonna have...

...the wedding of my dreams for you.

Okay. -Connie now, you come with me.

There is a beautiful room for the photographs...

...and I think it will be just...

Phillip!

Honey!

I hope you brought a hat.

The sun is particularly harsh this time of day.

Peter, what is all of this?

I tried to stop her, but...

We talked about this.

If I can't have time to plan a wedding, then I just...

...want something simple. This isn't simple!

This is... I don't know what this is.

Honey. You're right, okay?

I'll talk to Mother and get her to take it all down.

Okay? -Thank you.

-I love you. -I love you.

Just that when she found out how much I adored you...

...she got a little excited and went overboard.

-I know. I'm sure she means well. -She does.

Why don't you go get rested up?

I had them put that sparkling water you love in your room.

I am going to run two more miles and then I'm gonna sit down...

...with mother and tell her to cancel everything.

She will be devastated, but she'll get over it.

No. No. Don't do that.

-Are you sure? -Yes?

You are the most thoughtful person I know.

Honey? Only 300 steps today?

I didn't have time to run before the flight.

Run for your heart, and your heart will run for you.

I like it.

It's good, right? -Yeah!

Is that too corny for a book title?

No. I think it's catchy.

What would I do without you?

I gotta go, I gotta go. -Okay.

Bye.

Quick! What are the first words that...

...come to your mind when you see this tent?

I don't think that I could put it into words.

She could, but she really shouldn't.

A Valentine's dream.

More like a nightmare.

Mrs. Lorenzo... -No.

You must call me "Mama" or "Mother" or "Mom,"...

...whatever seems most comfortable. Now, this...

...is where the wedding cake will go, and this...

...is where you'll have your first dance with Peter!

Actually, I don't dance.

At all. I'm... I'm quite uncomfortable...

She really doesn't.

Not at her prom or at birthday parties, weddings...

You could skip the first dance...

Nonsense!

No, no, no, no, no.

There's nothing to it.

You just put your arms around Peter's neck, and sway.

I can't wait to show you the bridal cabin.

There's a bridal cabin?

This is the bridal cabin.

The hotel reserves it for the bride and groom.

I was lucky to get it on such short notice!

And I decorated it myself.

So festive.

Surprise!

I know you didn't have time to shop...

...so I got it out of storage and had it...

...cleaned for you. Believe it or not, I was about...

...your size when I got married.

I couldn't.

I... I just brought a simple white suit.

This is a wedding! You need a wedding dress!

-What? -Let's go.

Let's give the bride a chance to digest some of the...

...special special-ness.

You just relax, and try that dress on!

Okay.

I want you to take some time to think about this carefully.

Is this really what you want to do?

Hi. Is there a bridal store in town?


Come on!

Come on...

You won't get cell service out here.

Thank you. I'm...

...I'm... I'm just looking for the town.

It's that way about a mile.

Great.

And you're lucky.

This time of day, the...

...the bears are sleeping, so... -Did you just say bears?

I'm kidding.

Good.

Are you, you hurt?

Here, let me have a look. -Yeah...

No! Thank you, no.I just...

It's fine. Just fell off the bike.

I know first aid.

What are you, some kind of Boy Scout?

Actually, yeah, I used to be.

Great. Okay.

I'm gonna go to town.

I'll walk you. I'll make sure you get there safe.

You don't...

You don't have to do that.

Actually, I do have to do that.

It's in the Boy Scout Handbook, and I took the oath so...

What about my bike? It's broken.

Yeah, don't worry. Bears don't ride bikes.

It's so hot.

Yeah, you know, we should really be wearing sunscreen.

Even with the tree cover...

...the sun damage this time of day...

Why did you do that?

What?

Wha... That!

I just wanted to jump in the water.

Well, that was a dangerous and irresponsible thing to do!

And do you always do the safe and responsible thing?

If you must know...

...I don't like heights and I don't swim.

You don't trust yourself that you'll be able to make the leap.

You don't trust that you'll be able to...

...handle whatever might happen.

That's complete nonsense.

Clearly, you're struggling with a decision.

You're obviously preoccupied.

You don't know that!

This reminds me of a saying...

...I heard once from a wise old Italian woman...

...and basically it means you know...

...a decision is right when it feels...

...like getting into a warm bath.

Well, forgive me if I don't want to...

...discuss my personal life with a stranger.

That is precisely the reason...

...why you should discuss it with me.

I'm a chance encounter with a perfect stranger, whom...

...you'll most likely never see again.

I'm in the unique position to offer you unbiased, objective advice.

You shouldn't eat those. They might be poisonous.

I hate to break it to you...

...but you can do everything right make all the right choices...

...and still bad things can happen.

Well, thank you for all of this stellar advice...

...but I don't need your help anymore.

Which way do I go?

Are you making this decision because...

...you think it's right or because you feel it's right?

Is it your heart or your head telling you what to do?

I met you an hour ago, and what?

You think you know me?

I... I know that you're...

...you're thoughtful...

...and... and kind... and a little neurotic.

Well, it's absolutely arrogant to presume...

...to know anything about me.

Or my life! Or...or any decis...

Why did you do that?

Impulse. I wanted to see what would happen.

Well, impulse is the lowest form of human behavior.

It's... impulsive, and... immature and irresponsible.

And I am very glad I will never see you again.

And another thing...

There you are! Honey where have you been?

Mother and I have been worried sick about you.

What happened to your leg?

I went for a bike ride in the woods I fell off, I got lost.

You poor thing. Let me take a look.

Surface abrasion. Well, at least you got some exercise.

I wanted to go into town to look for a wedding dress.

Mother said she's letting you wear her wedding dress.

Well, it's not exactly my taste.

Well, we don't want to hurt her feelings.

What about my feelings?

Peter, does this seem right to you?

What?

This! Us getting married so fast.

Are we making this decision with...

...our heads or our hearts?

I don't understand the question.

Well, there's just so much we haven't talked about.

Like, where are we going to live?

Do we want to travel?

Where do we want to raise our kids?

Kids? Do you want kids?

I think so. Don't you?

Look, we can discuss it. If, in a few years...

...you still want... one, then we'll talk about it.

We love each other, and there is nothing...

...we can't work through. I just want you to be happy.

That's so sweet.

I think marrying you is going to be...

...the smartest decision I've ever made.

So then this scruffy mountain man...

...comes out of the woods and tells me...

...I need to abandon all my decisions...

...because I'm too responsible!

How can you be "too responsible"?

Sounds like he really gets you.

He eats poisonous berries and jumps off cliffs...

...but he thinks he can tell me how to live my life.

Okay, calm down. He's gone.

You're never gonna have to see him again.

Well, I hope not, because I would run...

...the other way as fast as I could.

I would never give him a chance to kiss me ever again.

I'm sorry. You kissed him?

No! No. He kissed me. I didn't kiss him back.

Okay, I mean, I did, but only because I was so shocked!

You're blushing!

No, I'm not! I am...

...hot in here, and I feel outraged and indignant.

Or in love.

I met Jaclyn when she was designing the new addition to...

...the children's wing at the hospital.

She was the smartest woman I'd ever dated...

...and now that she's running and eating right...

...she's also one of the healthiest.

Well...

You see, she shifted her mind to shift her body.

And Peter had just returned from Africa...

...where he was doing heart surgeries on children.

I was so impressed. I mean...

...I guess I just couldn't help but fall in love.

Max! I'm really glad you're here!

I knew you'd make it!

Jaclyn, this is my little brother and best man...

...Max.

Max, this is Jaclyn. She's my bride.

It's a pleasure to meet you.

It's so nice to meet you. For the first time. Ever.

Well, don't be shy! Come on in there.

Give her a hug. She's gonna be your new sister-in-law.

You know I never thought you'd make it.

I sent word, but had no idea if you were...

...receiving messages in the jungle, or wherever you were.

You know I'd never miss this.

Okay. Okay, Max is a pediatrician living...

...and working in Africa. He travels from city to city...

...taking care of sick children. That's why I was there.

That's so interesting. I'm gonna go to the bar.

Yes, he's chosen to use his Harvard education...

...as an unknown, poor humanitarian.

Who does such a thing?

It's good to see you too, Mom.

Papa.

Why didn't you tell me who you were?

I thought you were just some guy living in the woods!

Why didn't you tell me you were my brother's fiancée?

Is that what you were trying to decide?

Whether or not to marry him?

No! Not at all. That is the one thing...

...that I am absolutely completely sure of.

You didn't seem so sure when you kissed me.

I didn't kiss you! You kissed me.

Nonna.

Questa la mia nonna. My grandmother, Nonna Rosa.

You make a lovely couple.

No, Nonna.

No, Grandma.

They aren't getting married. We are getting married!

Ma! Ma. Mom.

She just said congratulations in Italian.

Thank you!

Well, I'm just exhausted and...

...we have a really long day tomorrow...

...so I'm going to go to the bridal cabin...

...and get my beauty sleep.

I'll walk you back. -No, no it's fine.

Just, stay, enjoy your family. -Okay.

I'll walk her back.

-Great. -Yeah.

Well... It's good to see you, man.

You didn't give me much notice.

What's really going on?

Look...

...writing a New York Times best-seller is great, but...

...they're never gonna appoint me chief...

...of the hospital unless I have a stable, settled life.

And since when do you want to be chief of the hospital?

That's never what you wanted to do.

That's what Mom wanted for you.

What just happened in there? Are you okay?

I'm fine.

You are clearly not fine. What happened?

Okay. You know Peter's brother?

Max, the gorgeous single doctor?

Well...

I've met him before.

When?

He's the scruffy guy you kissed in the woods?

He cleans up really well!

So you kissed him? You kissed Peter's brother?

Can you please stop saying that?

Number one, I didn't know he was his brother...

...and number two, I didn't kiss him, he kissed me.

Okay, relax. So? What are you going to do?

Do? Nothing. Now that I've met Max...

...I'm more sure than ever that I want to marry Peter.

Peter is... predictable, and safe and reliable.

That is exactly what I want in a man.

Really? That's exactly what I want in a vacuum cleaner.

Jaclyn, just do one thing for me. Okay?

When you wake up tomorrow morning...

...ask yourself if this is the happiest day of your life.

Is Peter your one true love?

If you can say yes to those questions...

...I will support you 100%. If not...

...you need to stop this wedding.

You don't get a do-over.

Sweetie... I promise you, I will not want a do-over.

Just... be sure.

-Okay. -Okay.

-See you tomorrow. -See you.

A do-over. I definitely will not want a do-over.

Hello? -Good morning.

This is your wake-up call.

Thank you.

Is this the happiest day of my life?

Good morning!

Welcome to our wedding day! Time to get at it!

This is Kenneth, and that's Gerry, and they are...

...going to transform you into Cinderella.

I'm leaving you in good hands.

We have a lot to do before the wedding.

Kate!

I don't know what to say.

Don't say anything.

You are already getting ready?

So I guess that means you've made your decision?

I have.

Well, then let's get you married.

Can't you see where you're going?

What's the matter with you?

This is... just...

...so...

...so "wow."

Margaret really wants me to wear her wedding dress.

It's so important to her. I just feel like I can't say no.

Yes, you can.

It's your wedding day.

It is. It's my wedding day.


Friends and family we are gathered here today to join...

...this man and this woman in holy matrimony.

Marriage is forever and ever.

It lasts a lifetime and binds...

...two people together for eternity.

Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife,...

...to have and to hold forever and ever?

I do.

And do you, Jaclyn, take this man...

...to be your lawfully wedded husband...

...to have and to hold, forever and ever?

I do?

I now pronounce you husband and wife.

You may kiss the bride.


All right, ladies and gentlemen, it's about that time.

It is my privilege to present to you...

...the new Dr. and Mrs Peter Lorenzo.

Let 'em feel it! All right.

Son!

Here, grab yourself a drink.

Honey!

Are you okay?

Luckily you saved her.

That will never come out.

The newlyweds will now go to the dance...

...floor for their first dance as...

...husband and wife. -Great.

Thank you.

So sweet.

-Hang on and move your feet. -Okay.

My mother made my brother and I take...

...six years of dance lessons, so just follow me.

-Okay. -Okay.

Okay, now family only join them on the dance floor.


Okay.

So much fun.

Is this what you wanted?

Yes. Yes. This is exactly what I wanted. I'm so happy.

Well, then I am really happy for you.

Thank you.


When I got the message to come home and attend...

...my brother's wedding, I was surprised.

Why were they getting married after...

...knowing each other for...

...less than a year? And then I met Jaclyn.

She is beautiful and intelligent, and...

...when she smiles, the whole room lights up.

A toast to the happy couple. -The happy couple.

-Cheers. -Cheers.

Cheers, congratulations.

I love you. -I love you, too.

One... two... three!

I think I'll stretch out under the stars for a while.

Now?

Look at that sky.

I just have to take this in a minute.

Was this the happiest day of my life?

I wish I could have a do-over.


Hello? -Good morning.

This is your wake-up call.

I didn't ask for another wake-up call.

Peter?

Where are you?

How did they get the wine out?

Good morning! Welcome to our wedding day!

Time to get at it!

This is Kenneth, and that's Gerry, and they are...

...going to transform you...

...into Cinderella.

-I... -Don't worry.

They're going to do a stunning smoky eye.

What's going on?

You are going to be a beautiful bride.

-But I already got married. -You've been married before?

Does Peter know? You got divorced, didn't you?

Seriously, what's going on?

Kate! -Don't say anything.

You're already getting ready?

So I guess you've made your decision.

You already said that.

I already heard you say that...

...and why are you still wearing that hideous dress?

"Hideous"?

What... what day is it?

It's February 14th.

We already had February 14th.

Are you okay?

Is this a do-over?

Are all of you in on this?

A what?

Can't you see where you're going?

That! I knew that was gonna happen.

He did that yesterday.

Then they should fire that guy.

No, you don't understand.

All of this happened yesterday.

You were here. You were here. You came in.

He dropped his golf clubs, and then I got married!

Yesterday, when she got lost in the woods...

...and fell and hurt her leg...

...maybe she hit her head, too?

Maybe she has a concussion. I'm calling a doctor.

I don't need a doctor! I need to know what's going on.

What's going on? Wh...

Maybe this is a dream.

You're scaring me.

Has your sister ever been treated...

...for mental health issues?

Everyone, out!

Let's go. I need to take care of my sister...

...'cause she's obviously experiencing...

...some kind of bridal delusion.

-But, Kate, I... -No, no...

...you have got to get out of here now.

Okay, you believe me, right?

Of course I believe you.

I'm just glad you finally came to your senses!

I say we leave now.

You can call Peter from the airport...

...and explain that you changed your mind.

No, Kate, I'm not trying to get out of the wedding.

I'm telling you, I already lived this day.

Let's just get home and...

...we can talk about it over a nice hot cup of tea.

I can't go home with you. I got married yesterday!

And when I say "cup of tea," I mean bottle of wine.

What if I dreamed it?

Okay, so what if this is real...

...but last night, I dreamed something very nearly...

...pretty much exactly like this.

It doesn't matter.

Either way, I'm getting you out of here.

Let's go. -No.

No. I can't hurt Peter.

I can't just leave him at the altar because...

...I'm having some kind of déjà vu moment.

He's chosen to spend his life with me and I said yes.

But maybe you don't want to get married.

He is a wonderful man.

And his whole family's here today...

...and I'm going to get married today.


Friends and family, we are...

...gathered here today to join this man...

...and this woman in holy matrimony.

Marriage is forever and ever.

It lasts a lifetime and binds two people together for eternity.

Do you, Peter, take this woman to be your...

...lawfully wedded wife to have and to hold...

...forever and ever?

I do.

And do you, Jaclyn, take this man to be your...

...lawfully wedded husband...

...to have and to hold, forever and ever?

I do. Again.

I now pronounce you man and wife.

You may kiss the bride.

My baby.

All right, ladies and gentlemen, it's about that time.

It is my privilege to present to you the new...

...Dr. and Mrs. Peter Lorenzo.

Let 'em feel it! All right.

Son!

Here, grab yourself a drink.

That will never come out!

It might.

The newlyweds will now go to the dance floor...

...for their first dance as husband and wife. All right.

Thanks.

-You all right? -Yep.

-Careful. -Great.

Just move your feet and hold on.

My mother made my brother and I take six years...

Brother and you take six years of dance lessons...

...so I'll just follow you. -How did you know that?

You told me yesterday.

-I did? -Yep.

Okay, now family only...

...join them on the dance floor.

-Excuse me. -Okay.

Everything okay?

Not really. I think I might be going insane.

Is there anything I can do?

Nope. I just really want this day to be over.

Again.

-Smile. -Okay.

When I got the message to come home...

...and attend my brother's wedding I was surprised.

Why would they be getting married...

...after knowing each other for less than a year.

And then I met Jaclyn...

Thank you, all, thank you, all...

...for coming to our wedding but it's our wedding night and...

...we are very anxious to go to bed.

To sleep.

Okay what I'm trying to say is we need to go to our room so...

...this day can finally end.

So that we can look back on our wedding day...

...and be so happy that we got married.

-What? -Please.

This dress!

We really should stay and spend time with our guests.

The bride and groom. The bride and groom.

The bride and groom.

I think I'll go stretch out under the stars for a while.

Again?

I could skip it.

No, no, no, no, it's fine.

Last night, you went out on the porch...

...and then I went to bed alone.


Please let this day end forever.

Hello? -Good morning.

This is your wake-up call.

Good morning!

Welcome to our wedding day! Time to get at it!

This is Kenneth and that's Gerry, and they are...

...going to transform you into Cinderella.

Well, she fell off her bike yesterday and...

...might have hit her head. I think she has a concussion.

-Maybe she's on drugs. -I'm right here.

I don't have a concussion and I'm not on drugs.

She recently gave up sugar, caffeine...

...and gluten, so she could be hallucinating?

Perhaps you should all give us some space.

I love you, honey. Remember, for better or for worse.

Okay?

For better or worse.

So... what's really going on here?

Well, there's nothing wrong with me.

I can see that. You're perfectly fine.

So why am I here? Cold feet?

No! I'm not trying to get out of the wedding.

I am living the same day over and over and over again.

Every morning, I wake up, it's February 14th...

...and I'm getting married.

I've seen this before.

Are you serious? Thank heaven.

What do I do I fix it?

Well, you're under a lot of stress that causes anxiety.

I'm gonna put you on a mild antidepressant.

No! No, no, no. I don't have anxiety.

I... Okay, well, yes, I do...

...but it's not because of the wedding...

...it's because I am living the same day...

...again and again and again.

-All right. Who's calling me? -I don't know.

Now you have a credibility problem.

If you were living the same day again and again and again.

You would know who's calling me.

No, I wouldn't, because that's not how it works.

Every day's different. I've never met you before.

So you're living the same day but it's different?

-That's what I'm saying. -That's what you're saying?

I asked for a do-over.

I just didn't think it would actually happen.

-A "do-over"? -Yeah.

I'm going to be right back.

How's it going?

She has to be in hair and makeup by 12:00.

I'm going to get her tested for drugs.

I'm still here.

You okay?

What are you doing here?

Well, rumor has that you went a little off the rails.

Can you get me out of here?

-Yeah. -Okay, good, let's go! Come on.

So if I get what you're saying you're stuck in some kind of...

...cosmic loop and you keep living the same day...

...over and over again? How long?

This is day four...

I think. I don't even care if you believe me.

Well, I do believe you.

You really do?

I have no evidence to the contrary.

In the villages I work in, in Africa...

...they believe that there is a whole...

...world going on around us that we don't see.

And we're given clues that...

...guide us in our everyday lives.

Some clues are harder to understand.

Maybe you're right.

Maybe I'm in some kind of cosmic loop...

...and I just need to break the cycle.

Stay with me here tonight.

Maybe if I never go back to my room...

...then the whole day can't start all over again.

Yeah, but if I stay with you here all day...

...you're going to miss your wedding...

...and my brother's going to be heartbroken.

Look, I already married him several times.

I'm not gonna do it again.

So stay with me or don't stay with me...

...but I'm not going back.

Peter loves you, and this is...

Okay. Okay. Fine.

If this doesn't work and I can't break the cycle...

...I'll marry him again tomorrow.

Okay.

So we're stuck here all day?

Might as well make the most of it.

I'm gonna help you get over your fear of swimming.

I don't have a fear of swimming I have a fear of drowning.

Have you ever heard of immersion therapy?

It's where you take the person and expose...

...them to what they're afraid of, a little at a time...

...till they get more comfortable with it.

-It's not gonna work. -What have you got to lose?

-I don't think I like this. -It's okay.

We don't have to go any further.

Today, we can just hang out in ankle-water.

Your entire family must think I'm a total nut.

Then you'll fit right in.

I'm so hungry.

Do you want some of the possibly poisonous berries?

No.

Well they didn't kill me yesterday so they must be fine.

True! Thank you.

You know that eventually you're gonna...

...have to trust that everything's gonna be okay?

I'm so tired.

But we have to stay awake until...

...it's tomorrow so the day can't start all over again.

Okay. How about this? Go to sleep.

I'll take the first shift.

You take the next shift. I'll go to sleep.

That's a great idea. Thank you.

And if it doesn't work, come and find me, we'll try again.


Hello? -Good morning.

This is your wake-up call.

Why is this happening? What did I do to cause it?

Is there anything I can do to stop it...

...or am I completely powerless over what's happening?

Hello? Please, help me!

Good morning! Welcome to our wedding day!

Time to get started. That's Kenneth and this is Gerry.

-Great. Great. -And they are to...

You can't transform me! Nothing can!

This is going to be who I am forever.

This one day!

This is my past, my present, and my future...

...and this is not the happiest day of my life!

Can you get me 50 more of these?

-Honey? -Peter.

Are you okay? Everyone's really worried about you.

It's bad luck to see the bride before the wedding.

That's exactly what I wanted to talk to you about...

....the wedding.

Do you know we're supposed...

...to be getting married in an hour?

I can't go through with that wedding again.

"Again"?

It feels like we've been getting married for weeks.

Honey...

Why are you so nervous? We're a perfect match.

We both love opera, golf and crossword puzzles.

Is that enough?

I think I know what's happening here and it's all my fault.

It is?

You have every right to be confused and upset.

I do?

Thank you so much for understanding.

I just got so caught up in my own world...

...I forgot I'm part of a team now.

And I let you down.

You did?

My book was a huge success and...

...I became a celebrity overnight.

Now I'm about to be named chief of the hospital.

Soon, I'll be given my own talk show.

That has absolutely nothing to do...

...with what we're talking about.

Okay, look, if this is about having a child...

...I've thought about it and I've come up with a solution.

If, in a few years, you still want one...

...we can have a child, and I'll film...

...the whole thing for my new TV show.

The segment will be called...

..."Be Heart-Healthy From Conception to Delivery."

You give birth, and I deliver live on-air.

No one's done that.

Well? What do you say?

We forget this whole thing ever happened?

You put on that wedding dress, and we go get married.

Hello? -Good morning.

This is your wake-up...

Good morning! Welcome to our wedding day...

Where are you going?

What are you doing here?

Shouldn't you be getting ready for your wedding?

You promised to help me get over...

...my fear of water. So... help?

So if I understand you...

...this day keeps happening over and over again...

...and I'm giving you swimming lessons...

...to help you get over your fear?

-Yes! -But...

...I don't remember any of it because...

...for me, this is the first time it's happened?

Exactly! So today, we go in up to our knees.

I'm doing very well.

Well, then I think you should...

...put your head in, maybe float on your back.

I don't think so. But maybe tomorrow...

Well, I guess today. Maybe never.

What happened that made you so afraid of the water?

You know, I wasn't always scared of the water.

As a kid, I went swimming all the time.

But then one day, I just looked at...

...the water and decided it was unsafe.

You know? It was dangerous and risky and...

...I know that doesn't make any sense.

Okay. Thank you for the lesson.

I have to go get married now.

Okay. See you at the wedding.

By the way, I love the speech that...

...you're gonna make. It's very sweet.

I haven't written that yet.

And tomorrow, we go up to your waist!

Fine. I'll wear my bathing suit.

I can't believe I went swimming! I'm a swimmer!

You're a fast learner.

Actually, I'm not. It's been days of lessons.

-I was just scared. -Yeah. We all are.

It's what you do in spite of your fear that defines you.

Peter told me your parents...

...they died in a car accident when you were pretty young.

They were just on their way to the hardware store.

I mean, if you can die while going to...

...pick up lightbulbs, then nothing's safe.

So that's when you made the decision to...

...play it safe, not to take any risk, and...

...live life by the numbers.

And there's nothing wrong with that. That's smart.

Yes, but it's also an illusion.

I hate to break it to you but you can make...

...all the right choices and live life within the lines...

...but life's still gonna happen to you...

...and you have no control over it.

Okay, well, I have the illusion of control.

What's the worst that could happen?

I don't know. That's the problem.

Yeah, but it seems like you already...

...went through the worst, and you made it through.

So if you could go anywhere in the world...

...where would you like to go?

-Why? -Just making conversation.

Egypt.

Cairo. I want to see the pyramid of Giza.

That's the one in the middle, right?

The biggest one? It's still intact.

It's actually the oldest of the...

...Seven Wonders of the World. It's breathtaking.

-You've been there? -Yeah. Cairo's an amazing city.

The architecture there is still standing after so long.

That's actually why I wanted to be an architect.

I want to be a part of something that's here after I'm gone.

Your wedding's happening in a couple hours, so...

No.

I cannot go through with that wedding again.

I know your mother means well, but it is...

Okay, the dress...

...the dress is wrong, the flowers are horrible, the...

...the cake is sugar-free, gluten-free lemon.

Who has a lemon wedding cake? That's just sad.

My first dance is humiliating.

I can't dance, everyone's looking at me.

So learn to dance.

No, I'm serious. Anyone can learn to dance.

My mother put Peter and I in six years of...

...dance classes when we were kids.

If I can teach you how to swim I can teach you how to dance.

What are you doing here?

Shouldn't you be getting ready for your wedding?

You promised to teach me how to dance.

I did?

Okay, so I'm gonna put my hand on your waist...

...you put your hand up here on my shoulder. Good.

I'm gonna step forward.

You step back with your right foot. And to the side.

And back. And to the side. Good.

Now, if only we had music.

Okay, not so tense. Relax your shoulders.

I'm still horrible! I'll never get this.

Well, it takes time.

Be willing to let go of fear and judgment, and just...

...move to the music. -Okay.

Okay, close your eyes.

Now I want you to go back to when you were a little girl...

...just dancing in your room with your sister.

There's no fear, there's no judgment...

...just the joy of moving to the music.

You know what? When I was really little...

...I wanted to be a ballerina.

Really?

I have no idea why I just told you that!

I have never told anyone that.

Dancing is very intimate.

Okay, you tell me something you've never told anyone.

And you had a huge crush on your third-grade teacher...

...and you never told anyone.

What? How do you know that?

I know about Rachel and Lily and Malina.

Okay, so I haven't been very lucky in love...

...but neither have you, up until now.

I mean, before my brother, you dated some epic losers.

-Wait! How did you know that? -Cause you just told me.

-You're a wonderful dancer. -I had a great teacher.

-And this is your first lesson? -It feels like weeks of lessons.

-Where did you get the orchestra? -I Googled them.

Your grandmother said something in Italian...

...yesterday, and you and Peter had a reaction.

-What did she say? -I can't tell you what she said.

Then I'll just have to learn Italian.

-Ciao. Come stai? -Ciao! Come stai?

Lesson two. I'm so happy to meet you.

Sono cosi contenta di incontrare voi.

Sono cosi contenta di incontrare voi.

Era tanti anni che mi vado in Italia.

Mi piacerebbe trascorrere una vacanza in quest'estate.

Era tanti anni che mi vado in Italia.

Mi piacerebbe trascorrere una vacanza in quest'estate.

There has got to be a way to make this wedding better.

Hi, Kate? Can you meet me in the lobby in 10 minutes?

-These smell so good. -They do.

These are my favorite.

Those are my favorite!

Do you remember when I was little and I broke my arm skating?

Yes!

You were so brave when they were putting on your little cast.

You slept in a sleeping bag on...

...the floor next to my bed for two weeks.

I can't believe you remember this. You were so young!

Daddy used to carry you back to your bed...

...but you'd come back.

Well, I didn't want you to feel alone.

I'm glad you are my sister. I love you.

I love you, too. Okay, what should we do next?

Try this one. It's like a surprise party for your mouth.

So you're back to eating sugar and gluten and caffeine?

-Yeah, I'm... -Thank you.

I eat everything today.

I'll stop tomorrow if tomorrow ever comes.

That is both optimistic and pessimistic at the same time.

I've realized you can color inside...

...the lines all you want, but it doesn't keep you safe.

It's all an illusion. Life just happens...

...and we just have to try and keep up. That's amazing.

Try the key-lime.

That is good.

Question...

Why are we here trying wedding cakes?

Because I want to get the best one for my wedding.

Right... but you realize that there is a wedding...

...that is supposed to happen in an hour?

A wedding for you and Peter...

...and they already have a cake and...

...flowers and food...

Yes, but I thought about what you said...

...and you were right it's my wedding.

Shouldn't I have everything the way I want it?

True. I'm just worried...

...that you might be losing your mind.

I might be. But shouldn't we enjoy it?

I wish Mom were here to do this with us.

She is here, because we are here and...

...she's a part of us.

It's pretty but...

I agree.

Careful.

That's the one.

I agree!

It's called the "Princess dress," and I love it!

It's perfect. You look just like Mom.

She and Daddy would be so proud of you.

You look beautiful! When's the wedding?

Today.

Do you have a maid-of-honor dress that matches with this?

Something that isn't pink.

You know what? I think we do. I'll be right back.

So...

Have you talked to Max since the kiss yesterday?

Actually, I have.

And? What's he like?

He's intelligent and inspiring and...

...compassionate, and he loves being...

...a doctor and helping people.

And he dances and he plays guitar and he loves children.

You found all that out in one day? He sounds like a great guy.

He really is.

So? What are you gonna do about it?

Nothing. He's Peter's brother.

Yeah, but when you talk about him your whole face smiles.

This is gonna be the perfect wedding.

Well...

I'm just happy I got to help you plan it.

Do you know what?

If I had to live one day over and over again...

...I would live this one with you.

Do you hear that, universe?

If I have to live one day over and over again...

...I pick this one!

Hello? -Good morning.

This is your wake-up call.

Good morning, Linda. How's Pepper doing?

-You know Pepper? -Well, of course I know Pepper!

You can't know Linda without knowing her puppy, Pepper.

Hello!

Can you connect me to Loretta the concierge?

Hi, Loretta!

This is Jaclyn Palmer in the bridal suite.

Yesterday, I saw a dress in the wedding store.

It's called the "Princess" gown and...

...there's a blush-colored maid-of-honor...

...dress that matches it.

I need both dresses in a size four.

Can you send someone down there with...

...my credit card, and have them shipped to my room?

Fantastic! I'm also gonna need some white roses and some orchids.

They have them at the florist on Main.

I'd like them wrapped in white ribbon, and...

You know, can you just come to my room with a pen and a pad of paper?

I have a whole list of things I'm gonna need for today.

Thanks.

What's going on?

I've made some changes to the wedding.

What?

I appreciate everything you've done but it's my wedding.

Right? I should have everything the way I want it!

-I guess, but there's no time... -Kate's here.

Don't say anything.

Don't worry. You don't have to wear that.

Boys I know exactly how I want my hair and makeup.

Can't you see where you're going? What's the matter with you?

-I'm sorry. I'm so... -Hold on a second.

Excuse me! Hi. It wasn't his fault.

You were on your cell phone and you weren't paying attention.

Have a nice day.

You look beautiful. Just like Mom.

Let's go.

Friends and family, we are gathered here today...

...to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony.

Marriage is... -He does, and I do, too!

So everyone join us for the best wedding you'll ever go to!

-What? What are you doing? -Phillip, what is she doing?

Fry?

What's going on?

This is our wedding. We should get to plan it.

I had them serve all my favorite foods. Thank you!

But there's meat and there's gluten.

Okay, I thought of a chapter for your new book.

"Eat What Makes You Happy So Your Heart Can Smile."

But that's completely off-brand and it makes no sense.

None of this makes any sense. Let's dance.

-You don't dance. -I do now!

It's bad for your you'll have a heart attack!


That was a wonderful wedding.

My grandmother's still dancing.

It was perfect. The dress and the flowers... the cake.

Why'd you marry my brother?

He... asked?

And it seemed like the answer to all my dreams...

...and he makes me feel safe and cared for.

And that's enough for you? To feel "safe and cared for"?

And he loves me. He doesn't try and change me.

He accepts me for the way I am. Mostly.

I just think we have a really good chance of being happy.

You seem like a strong, confident woman...

...and actually, you're just a coward.

-I'm a coward? -Yes. You are.

You took the easy way out.

So what's wrong with that? I'll never be heartbroken...

...I will never feel hurt or disappointed...

...I will never have to lose someone...

...who I can't bear to lose again.

Yeah that's true.

But you'll also never know what...

...it feels like to love with your whole heart.

To know, in a single moment, what you've...

...been missing for an entire lifetime.

We just met, and I feel like I've known you forever.

We just met, and I feel like...

...we've taken a hundred long walks...

...and talked for a thousand hours.

But Peter's my brother and now you're his wife...

...and this... this can't be real.


Well, that was a great wedding, wasn't it?

Well, it certainly was different. I think Mother's feelings were hurt.

I was thinking maybe we could go to...

...Egypt for a honeymoon.

You know I'm far too busy for a honeymoon.

Well, not right now, but someday I'd like to go to Cairo.

I really want to see the pyramid of Giza.

Why would you want to go to a city...

...where everything is old?

If we take a honeymoon anywhere it's gonna be Hawaii.

I think maybe we should've gotten to know...

...each other a little better before we got married.

We should have taken a hundred long walks...

...and talked for a thousand hours.

I thought we did.

Good morning, Linda.

Good morning. This is your wake-up call.

Thank you.

What are you doing here?

Shouldn't you be getting ready for your wedding?

I was wondering if you wanted to take a walk.


What are you doing here?

Shouldn't you be getting ready for your wedding?

I was wondering if you wanted to go on a bike ride.


What are you doing here?

Shouldn't you be getting ready for your wedding?

I was wondering if you wanted to go on a picnic.

And put on some sunscreen. You burn so easily.

How do you know that?

I love this spot!

I know.

It's where you found your lucky silver dollar.

-How do you know that? -Because you told me.

No, I didn't.

You say that you keep it in your wallet...

...behind your driver's license for good luck...

...but I think you really keep it there to remind you of home.

-Who are you? -What do you mean?

Well, how do you know so much about me?

Well, some things I know because you told me...

...and some things I know from spending time with you.

I've realized I think the most important thing...

...in the world is having someone really know you.

These are all my favorite foods.

I know.

Except for the beets. I... I don't like Beets.

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

You don't like them because you haven't tried them...

...but last time we were here you tried them and you liked them.

Our last picnic, which was another...

...day but is also today?

Exactly.

I like beets!

Peter's a lucky man.

I don't think he even wants to get married.

Well, there's a way to tell if Peter's unsure...

...of what he's saying.

He smiles and he bites his lower lip.

That's how I was always able to beat him at poker...

...when we were kids.

The most romantic day of the year is coming, and I wanted to know...

...if you'll accept my proposal in making...

...our dreams come true.

Do you, Peter, take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife...

...to have and to hold, forever and ever?

I do.

And do you, Jaclyn, take this man to be...

...your lawfully wedded husband?

-Why do you want to marry me? -What?

-Why did you ask me to marry you? -Because I love you?

What is it that you love about me?

You're really smart and you're pretty.

Specifically, what is it about me that you love?

-I don't understand the question. -What's my middle name?

I don't know. Is that important?

Why am I afraid of the water? Why did I become an architect?

What's my favorite flavor of ice cream?

Where do I want to live when we get old?

-How do I take my coffee? -Should I know those things?

I mean, won't we have an entire lifetime...

...together to discover all of that stuff about each other?

That "stuff" is what makes us who we are.

It's why we fall in love with someone.

Being known and loved...

...for who you really are, that's what matters!

She's crazy!

-Why are you doing this? -You don't want to marry me.

We barely know each other.

You're only doing this because your mother...

...convinced you it would help you...

...make chief of the hospital.

That is the stupidest thing I've heard in my entire life!

What's worse is that...

...I don't think you even want that job.

You're a good man and a great doctor.

You love writing and traveling and being on TV.

You don't want the responsibility of running a hospital.

You want to be Dr. Phil!

You don't know what you're talking about!

Peter's dream is to run that hospital!

No, Ma.

She's right. I don't.

That's nonsense!

You have the opportunity to have everything you ever wanted!

No, Ma, that's what you want for me.

You have no idea what I want!

Margaret! S-sit down.

Peter, you are a wonderful man.

But, I want true love...

...messy, scary love that requires risk.

Love that takes a leap of faith.

You're right. I don't know if I'm...

...ready to take that leap.

But if I did, it would be with you.

That's very sweet.

Se qualcosa e giusta, ci si sente...

...come in un bagno caldo.

She said, "If something is right...

...it should feel like you're getting into a warm bath."

You speak Italian?

Yes.

My sister's so awesome!


So that went well.

I will apologize to your entire family.

Do you think Peter's okay?

He looks relieved. You were brave.

You told the truth.

That didn't come from your head it came from the heart.

-You know me so well. -I've only known you two days.

That's not true. We've taken a hundred walks...

...and talked for a thousand hours.

-That's impossible. -You told me you'd say that...

...and I'm supposed to tell you that...

...you became a doctor because of Sam.

How could you?

You didn't tell me what it meant.

You just said to tell you it's because of Sam.

Sam is this little boy that I met...

...on my first trip to South Africa.

He came in to the clinic where I was working and...

I helped him get his first pair of glasses.

And when he put 'em on, he started crying.

And I asked him why...

...and he said because up until that moment...

...he didn't know how beautiful the world could be.

That little boy opened my eyes to a world...

....that I'd never seen before.

A world where you could make a real difference in people's lives.

I'm so glad you told me that story.

So we've known each other for a long time?

We have.

So now what?

Well... we try to stay awake all night...

...to see if we can break the spell...

...but we fall asleep, and then...

...I wake up back in the cabin...

...and we have to live this day all over again.

Well, I don't mind. It wasn't such a bad day.

And no matter what happens, you won't be alone.

I'll be there and we'll go through it together.


It's a new day.

This is the happiest day of my life!

Morning.

Come on.

-Where are we going? -Just come on!

What are we doing here?

Let's jump.

Aren't you afraid of water and heights?

Life is full of risk.

You never know what's gonna happen but if you don't take chances...

...then you will never know what you're capable of.

That's very wise.

But it requires a leap of faith.

The important thing is to find someone...

...you want to take the leap with and then...

...you close your eyes and you take a deep breath...

-I love you, Jaclyn. -I love you, too, Max.

I now pronounce you man
