Improved By: FidelPerez & Subtitle By: hadilan Sub Upload Date: August 5, 2018

WOMAN: Hello. Rachel Hamilton.

Yes, thank you for calling me back.

Yes, Mr. LeRue told me you were coming in tomorrow.

Well, I promise, once you hear our pitch, there will be no doubt in your mind that LeRue is the company to make you America's next favorite potato chip.

Excuse me, the world's greatest potato chip.

(CHUCKLES) Right. Well, anyways, I'm sorry for calling on a Sunday, uh, but I actually... won't be in the meeting tomorrow, unfortunately, so I just wanted to make sure we had a chance to connect.

Mm-hmm? Why... won't I be there? Uh...

Actually, I'm getting married today. WOMAN: Come on, Rachel.

(CHUCKLES) Yeah, I know, it is exciting.

I wish I could serve your chips to my guests.

Maybe I should place an order right now and just postpone this wedding, huh?

(♫ "COME SEE ABOUT ME" BY THE SUPREMES PLAYING ♫)

♫ I've been crying, ooh, ooh ♫

♫ 'Cause I'm lonely for you ♫

♫ Smiles have all turned to tears ♫

♫ But tears won't wash away the fears ♫

♫ That you're never ever gonna return ♫

♫ To ease the fire that within me burns ♫

♫ It keeps me cryin', baby, for you ♫

♫ Keeps me sighin', baby, for you ♫

♫ So won't you hurry? ♫

♫ Come on, boy, see about me ♫ (CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING)

PHOTOGRAPHER: Breathe. Sorry. (CHUCKLES)

I'm not used to having my picture taken. PHOTOGRAPHER: It's fine.

I mean, the best wedding photos are the ones that show terror and fear.

(CHUCKLES)

♫ My friends are gone and you have, too ♫

♫ No peace shall I find ♫

♫ Until you come back and be mine... ♫ PHOTOGRAPHER: Oh, I love your pearls. Ah, thank you.

(CAMERA SHUTTER CONTINUES CLICKING) They were my mom's.

♫ Keep on cryin', baby, for you ♫

♫ I'm gonna keep sighin', baby, for you ♫

♫ So come on, hurry ♫

♫ Come on and see about me ♫ PHOTOGRAPHER: All right, loosen up.

Show some teeth.

(LAUGHING) (CHUCKLES) I feel so awkward.

PHOTOGRAPHER: We're getting so much good stuff.

Wonderful! I think we got it. Good. Okay.

Good, very good. Okay. Heh. (CHUCKLES)

♫ Come see about me See about you, baby ♫

♫ Come see about me ♫

Hey Penny, it's Rachel.

This is a reminder to make sure that the team presents the Cara's Cookies materials tomorrow in the pitch meeting.

And make sure that they say it is Whole Foods' top organic cookie seller, and that we created the brand.

Uh, what else?

Please ma... We have to go.

Uh... the... I gotta go.

(♫ "BRIDAL CHORUS" CONTINUES PLAYING ♫)

Can I give this...

Uh... (CLEARS THROAT)

(CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING)

(SIGHS)

(GUESTS MURMURING) MAN: Wow! (CHUCKLES)


Hi, everyone. I'm Frank LeRue.

I'm Rachel's boss.

And according to the Internet and the state of New York, I am here to join... my star employee... and Owen... in holy matrimony.

Now, Owen, from what I've gathered... you are a very smart, kind, adventurous guy.

A physical therapist... a great pasta maker... (GUESTS CHUCKLES)

...and one of the last remaining in-line skaters.

That takes dedication! (RACHEL AND GUESTS LAUGHS)

Now, some people don't think that there's such a thing as a branding emergency.

But if there is...

Rachel... is our EMT. (GUESTS CHUCKLES)

FRANK: She's committed, dedicated, and inspiring.

And now... the good stuff.

Will you please join hands?

RACHEL: Oh... (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) (GUESTS MUTTERING, LAUGHING)

BRIDESMAID: I'll get it. RACHEL: Okay.

(WHISPERS) Sorry.

(CHUCKLES)

(SCOFFS)

(SOFTLY) I can't do this.

What? I'm so sorry.

Oh, God, Rach.

I'm so sorry. (GUESTS WHISPERING)

OWEN: Sorry. What is he doing?

Owen? Wait. Owen.

FRANK: Uh... just a minute, folks. This is, uh...

This is a new thing that Rachel and Owen are trying out.

You know, they're innovating. Always. (CHUCKLES)

Sorry. I'm so sorry. I know I wasn't supposed to bring it.

But... um, please, you cannot do this right now.

I know this is insane.

Oh, my God.

Were you on a call before you walked down the aisle?

Yes, but see how well you know me?

See? That's why we're supposed to be getting married today.

Come with me...

Come on. Wait.

Owen? I'm sorry.

I love you.

I really, really do.

I can't believe I'm doing this, but I can't have this conversation again.

And not here.

I wanted this to work... more than it actually can. Oh, my God.

(CRYING) OWEN: I know you've tried.

Even our wedding can't make you change, and that's okay.

It's just not okay with me.

(CHAIR SQUEAKS, CLATTERS) (MAN GRUNTS)

(GUESTS GASPS, MUTTERS)

Dad?

That's your dad?

(SIGHS) Excuse me.

(SNIFFLES) I have to get out of here.

(PANTING)

(HORN BEEPS)

I'm a fucking bride, you fucking cocksucker!

(GASPS)

(ELEVATOR BELL CHIMES) (INDISTINCT CHATTER)

(PHONES RINGING) WOMAN: Good morning. LeRue.

MAN: Oh, no. Is she really here? WOMAN: I can't believe she's here. Oh!

WOMAN #2: What is she even doing? WOMAN #3: Awkward.

MAN #2: Hold on. Rachel's actually here. (MAN #3 INHALES SHARPLY)

MAN #2: I don't know what to say. (MUTTERING CONTINUES)

Morning, Penny.

FRANK: Morning. Good morning.

FRANK: You know you have two weeks off for that cruise, right?

Uh, I do, yeah.

Thanks, but I don't... I don't need it.

Hmm.

I'm fine.

I am. Really.

I'm... I'm sorry about yesterday. That was very dramatic, but, um...

(INHALES SHARPLY) You know, deep down, I know it was the right thing, and, uh...

I'm moving on to more important things, like the Evie's pitch at 11:00.

Did you talk to your dad?

Well, you saw him run off. So, no.

And honestly, I hardly know him, and I have no idea why he was there.

So, it doesn't matter.

What matters is that I'm here.

I've been trying to land this account for months.

So, uh... if you don't mind...

I'll just take the next five minutes to prep.

FRANK: Uh-huh.

I do not mind.

(♫ CALMING MUSIC PLAYING ♫)

ANNOUNCER: Evie's. From our hearts to yours.

You're probably wondering why we didn't talk about how good your chips taste.

That's because... any chip company can say that.

And they'd be right, because all chips are good.

I mean, they're chips, right?

But what we think is special about your company, what... what makes it unique... is you guys.

Your chips aren't just a snack.

They are an act of love.

And here at LeRue, that's the story we want to tell.

God, uh... (CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

(VOICE BREAKING) Honestly, when we moved out of Brooklyn two years ago, I never thought we'd be back in New York doing something like this.

Oh. We'd just gotten so caught up in the momentum of our draining everyday jobs...

(VOICE ECHOING) ...we'd forgotten how important things like... creating a human connection with our work was.

It... it touches me deeply to know

(IN NORMAL VOICE) ...that's what you'll be helping us continue to grow.

Can we answer any more questions you may have?

Uh, it's, uh, not really a question.

I just want to say thanks to all of you.

I mean, this is all really impressive.

Yeah, we know they're just potato chips, but they really are a... a part of us.

So, I hope you'll understand if we take some time with the decision.

Yeah. Of course.

Of course. Yeah. MAN: Thanks.

And, uh, Rachel...

Thank you so much for... for being here.

I mean, your new husband must really be so cool to not have minded you coming in today. WOMAN: Yeah.

Oh. (LAUGHS) Yeah, he's the coolest.

WOMAN: Tell him thank you for us. And have so much fun on your honeymoon.

I will.

That was brilliant. I can't believe she almost cried.

That was amazing. Did you see their faces?

FRANK: I gotta hand it to you guys, that was a brilliant job.

Really well done. Rachel... incredible.

(CHUCKLES) I can't believe I tried to send you home.

It's... (GRUNTS)

(LOUD CRASHING)

(BUZZING CONTINUES)

(GULPS) No, Owen, I think what you did was completely insane and entirely unforgivable.

Yeah, well, fuck you, too. (INHALES, EXHALES SHARPLY)

Hello? MAN: (OVER INTERCOM) Rachel. It's Dad.

I mean, it's...

Harry Hamilton, your father. (SIGHS)

Hello?

You there?

Yeah, I'm here.

What do you want?

Look, um...

I could probably come up with, uh... a million excuses, apologies...

But that won't change the past.

You hate me, and you probably should.

But I came yesterday because I thought it would be the best day of your life, and therefore, a good day for me to show up. And...

I didn't realize that...

That what?

That...

That... well, you know, you were there, so that... plan didn't exactly pan out.

I'm sorry. And I realize you... probably don't really want to talk to me right now, or anybody for that matter.

But I thought maybe you could use a drink.

You don't have to talk to me at all.

Come on, one drink.

No, the chef wants you to eat it... Would hand it to you like a sandwich?

Yeah, it's not a sandwich. Right.

Hang on. Let me have more beer. Know what you're looking for?

Less sense now. (GROANS)

You don't remember anything about it, do you?

No, not really.

Do you remember inviting me to join you?

No. Sorry.

Want to go see if they got an extra room?

They are completely full.

She says there's a pullout bed in the couch.

We're honeymooners, too. Mm-hmm.

(WOMAN CHUCKLES) You two look so happy together.

Thank you. That's very nice.

So, when did you get married?

We thought maybe it was last night because of, uh, how, uh, drunk you were getting into your rooms this morning. (COUPLE AND HARRY CHUCKLES)

Well, we're headed to the spa.

Nice meeting you. WOMAN: You, too.

I need to get out of these clothes. (SIGHS)

Well, I'm sure there's a golden sarong around here somewhere with your name on it.

Why don't you let me take you shopping. My treat.

Sure. Okay.

This outfit has become one with my body, I've been wearing it for so long.

HARRY: I feel the same way about my underwear.

Don't talk about your underwear. (WHIRRING)

What the fuck is happening?

Are we on a fucking floating bar?

HARRY: (CHUCKLING) It seems we are.

Want to get a drink?

You're breaking up, but...

I'll be back in the office on Thursday. FRANK: Wait, what day?

Thursday. I thought it was ten days.

I'm leaving early. Why?

Because I don't need a vacation. Yes, you do.

Wait... So, your dad's there? (WHISPERING) Yes, he's here.

(LAUGHS) How drunk were you? (IN NORMAL VOICE) Quite drunk. Okay?

Oh, my God. Just... set... a dinner meeting with them on Thursday night.

I can take the chipsters out myself.

You know? No, no, don't. I will handle it.

All right. Whatever you say. Okay.

Okay. Thank you.

You're welcome. Bye.

(LINE DISCONNECTS)

You know... if you want to talk something through, I'm an accounts man, too.

How did you know what I do for a living?

Google?

It's not hard to find out information about anybody these days.

You're saying you never Googled me? No. Why would I have done that?

My wedding, my job...

You read a lot about me, huh?

Mm-hmm.

Everything I could find.

You really never Googled me?

No.

The service is terrible. I...

I'm gonna go take a walk, try to... I'll go with you.

Let me put my shoes on.

Maybe we should take our bathing suits that we bought...

We can try that surfing thing. I've wanted to try...

Yeah. I think that surf thing's over on the other side of the ship.

Should we do it? Yeah, I just need to send this e-mail.

It's kind of important. I'm on the verge of a promotion.

Promotion? Yeah, I'd be the accounts director.

Well, if we land this company, a hippie potato chip maker from Upstate.

The chips are oddly good, though.

♫ There we go, now There we go, there we go ♫ It's just not... (SIGHS)

Yeah, I...

I'm not getting as good of service out here as I thought I would.

I'm gonna go back to the room, try to settle this. (SIGHS)

Ugh.

I feel like Owen set this whole thing up because he knew I wouldn't have service in the middle of the ocean.

Loser. Yeah.

He had nerve wanting the person he was spending time with to actually pay attention to him.

Why are you here, Harry?

Well, you practically forced me into that town car.

You may not remember, but you were aggressive. Uh-uh.

I don't care why you're on the cruise.

Why are you here... after all this time?

Why now?

Okay.

You want to do this now?

Leaving you was...

Please don't give me some rehearsed speech with a bunch of lame excuses about why you left.

I don't care why you left. I really don't give a shit why you left.

Okay? I care while you're here.

You showed up on my wedding day.

Now you're acting like we're best friends who have spent our lives together. Why?

Why now, Harry?

Well...

Gabe, my partner... Oh, shit, you're gay?

Oh, I didn't know you were gay. No one told me that.

(CHUCKLING) You think I'm gay?

Not that there'd be anything wrong with it if I was, but... no.

Gabe is my work partner.

We built a successful business together.

But, uh, I had some... some time off from work. And...

Gabe always says it's never too late. So, here I am.

Oh. So, you had time off, and then your friend told you to come.

Okay. I'm gonna get hash browns. I wanted to come, too...

No, that's... Hash browns?

I got extra for the table, and I don't eat them. Too many carbs.

So glad you lovebirds could finally join us.

MAN: Hey. MAN #2: You must be Rachel and Owen.

We're your assigned tablemates.

This is my gorgeous boyfriend, Steve. I'm Jim.

From San Francisco. Been dating two years.

That is Shirley and Leonard from Palm Beach.

Hi. JIM: Look at their outfits.

Are they not the cutest thing? I love 'em.

They are celebrating, get this... (CHUCKLES)

...their 50th wedding anniversary. Congratulations.

SHIRLEY: Thank you. JIM: Dan and Beth.

Second marriage for them both. The right one.

And... from Wichita?

Yes. Very impressive, Jim. You're right.

JIM: Why, thank you. Jim's insanely good at remembering things about people. It's... part of what makes him a good therapist, and it's gonna make him such a good dad.

JIM: We're adopting. STEVE: Yeah.

We're on the waiting list, so, don't wanna jinx it.

We're manifesting. If we think it, it's gonna happen.

STEVE: How did you guys meet? JIM: Yeah, what's your story?

How'd you catch the silver fox? Mm.

(SIGHS)

Hi, I'm Harry, actually, Rachel's dad.

Rachel and Owen decided not to get married, so she invited me to come.

You see, I left her... when she was five years old.

It's unforgivable. I know.

So, I showed up at their wedding a few days ago, and Owen decided to be a little bitch and leave Rachel at the altar.

So, I took Rachel out and got her good and drunk, and, uh, we're here.

(CHUCKLES) It's nice to meet you all, but we're gonna be getting off the ship when it docks in Jamaica tomorrow.

So you see, we have very little time, and um...

I'd like to congratulate all of you for your love.

That's really great.

MAN: Can we have a couple of lemon wedges? Thank you.

Hi, I'm Rachel. LEONARD: Hi.

DAN: Hey. Hey, Rachel. Nice to meet you.

I don't think you needed to know all of that, but now you do, so...

Sorry that we're leaving tomorrow.

Not as sorry as we are.

I mean, this is more interesting than what they got in the brochure.

Honey. Yeah. I'm sorry.

You guys hadn't seen or spoken to each other in how long?

Twenty-five years. Twenty-six.

Wow. I see.

So, why don't you just stay with us?

BETH: Yeah. We're really good people.

At least come hang out with us today.

Leonard and Shirley were nice enough to get us a private table in the adults-only section of the pool.

No kids. Mm-hmm.

Don't nothing ruin a vacation like kids. Mm-mm.

That's nice, but no thanks. I have a lot of work to do.

May I ask all of you a question?

Who here likes potato chips?

(OVERLAPPING CHATTER) HARRY: See? There. Job done.

All right? You can stay.

Suddenly, Gabe's bag drops, pops open, and there's a 30-year-old bottle of Macallan he's bought at duty-free.

Then we end up rolling all over the floor, plastered.

And that is how we landed the Cannon account.

(TABLEMATES LAUGHING) LEONARD: I got a plumbing contract for the entire Baltimore school system because I passed a roll of toilet paper to someone in the bathroom I was fixing.

Remember that, honey? SHIRLEY: (LAUGHING) I sure do.

That toilet paper pass changed our lives.

No shit.

(LOUD SLURPING)

(SMACKS LIPS) This story is just as good the third time, and I'm glad you're rich. Thank you for the cabana.

But we got something more pressing to deal with right now. Rachel...

Earth to Rachel. Rachel? (KNOCKING ON TABLE)

What's going on?

How are you?

How are you feeling about the "Owen" of it all?

Oh, um...

I'm fine.

I really am fine. I feel great about it, because... you know, he was never going to let me be the person that I want to be.

So, I think it... it really worked out for the best.

JIM: Okay. (INHALES SHARPLY) And who does she want to be?

Someone who can't interact? Babe. (SHUSHING)

JIM: I mean, I'm just trying to help.

I don't want our daughter like this. Don't jinx it.

I'm reminded of a time we were trying to pitch a client in Hawaii.

And I was allergic to the leis. Oh, you're gonna love this story.

Rachel, would you mind grabbing us another round at the bar?

Thank you.

JIM: I love Hawaii. SINGER: Thank you, thank you.

Sit back, relax, while the boys and I play another set.

MAN: Hi.

I'm Jeff.

From Edmonton, Alberta. It's in Canada.

Hi. Rachel. New York.

New York, USA.

I get that. I've been there.

Cool city. Mm-hmm.

Big. Big city.

I was there for a stag party 10 years ago. You call them bachelor parties.

Mm-hmm. It was fun.

We went to a steak house. It was expensive.

Excuse me. Um, what brings you on the cruise?

You, uh, here with your family? Husband? Boyfriend?

Girlfriend? Solo cruiser? Solo cruisin'?

Can I get a round of drinks for our group? Yes, of course.

I'm... I'm here with my dad, actually. Wow.

That's amazing.

I would only do that with my dad if it was his 200th birthday.

I mean, like, a very special occasion.

(CLICKS TONGUE) Actually, Jeff, if you can believe it, I was left at the altar a few days ago.

Uh, and my dad, who I haven't seen since I was five years old, showed up to my wedding unannounced. We got drunk together the next night, and I dragged him on this cruise that was supposed to be my honeymoon.

Pfft. That's fucked up.

Well, I, uh...

My wife left me a few months ago.

And my sister brought me on this cruise to kind of... cheer me up.

I guess it's working.

I developed a mantra...

Well, I didn't develop it, I read it in a book. But it's this:

"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, today's a gift.

BOTH: That's why they call it the present."

I've heard it.

JEFF: Pretty good. You heard that? Yeah.

It's... it's a kind of... Like, it's a well known phrase.

JEFF: Oh. I never heard it. I read it. JIM: Oh, sexy rabbi alert.

Ooh...

Can you say "rebound"? (SNICKERS)

Shirley.

Hello, chaps. BETH: Oh, hello.

WOMAN: How you doing? BETH: Good.

I'm gonna get back to my dad.

JEFF: Cool. But we're leaving tomorrow, actually.

So, maybe if I see you before then... we can, I don't know, hang out, live in the present... or something?

Sure. Uh, yes.

RACHEL: Okay. All right. I would love that.

I'll... I'll find you.

WOMAN: Yes, it's a trivia game show. Would you be...

JIM: Rachel, you're back from flirting. Great.

This is Ginny. Love that name. GINNY: Mm-hmm.

JIM: This is Ginny.

She's the activities director on the cruise ship, and she has arranged for us to get into the sold-out Gigantic Game Show.

You're gonna love it. It's task-oriented, just like work.

So, guys, who's in?

Oh! The Taubmans are there. Mm-hmm.

GINNY: Oh, yep. Oh! DAN: Mm-hmm.

JIM: I love anything gigantic.

GINNY: Oh, I'm excited. (♫ UP-BEAT MUSIC PLAYING ♫)

BETH: I hope they pick Dan as a contestant.

He is so good at trivia.

I just learned that dealing with people's teeth, it's easier to distract them with trivia facts.

Ah. Like, you got a cavity? It's okay.

Worldwide, approximately 2.43 billion people got cavities.

How?

All these newlywed games are the same.

All the questions can be answered by a few set responses.

That's not gonna work.

Maybe it will, maybe it won't. But just in case...

If it's a location, we say Hawaii. If it's a food, we say pizza.

If it's an activity, it's... jumping jacks.

If it's a color, we say black.

If it's a number, we say 22. That's stupid.

Hawaii, pizza, jumping jacks, black, 22!

JIMMY: All right, here we go!

Samantha, the question was...

What were the women that Russ dated before you like?

"Ugly skank whores!" (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)

Ooh, the triple threat of my heart.

All right, Russ, let's see what your answer was.

What were the women you dated before Samantha like?

Loose! Ooh! (AUDIENCE LAUGHS)

JIMMY: Ooh! Not the same.

Unfortunately, Russ and Samantha, if Rachel answers this question correctly, you are done.

Now, Harry... and Rachel.

For the use of a private cabana... for the rest of this trip... you two must complete this course... in a world-record time, one minute and three seconds. How are you feeling?

I moved to Edmonton in grade two, or second grade, as you guys call it.

♫ I looked around ♫ Harry. Harry!

I just want to say, I'm... I'm sorry if I was forward before, you know, with Rachel. I just...

Family therapy's my area, and I am fascinated by your relationship.

I mean... the bond you two share despite all these years apart, is incredible. Mm.

I only hope that we share something like that with our future imaginary child.

We cheated.

What? And, more importantly, she hates me. Frankly, I can't blame her.

She doesn't want to know about me.

She doesn't ask me anything. She's never even Googled me.

And she doesn't want to know why I left.

No, no, no, you gotta tell her, man.

You gotta tell her. I'd want to know. I'd have to before starting over.

Tell her. HARRY: I've tried, but she's always on that phone of hers.

Honestly, I'm starting to see why that son of a bitch Owen bailed on her.

You know, Harry, I think you guys are a lot alike.

I know.

At first, I thought it was great, but I'm starting to think she's a jerk.

Look, I've been a therapist now for four months.

Okay? So I want to give you my professional opinion for free.

(INHALES SHARPLY) You fucked up.

You fucked her up. You fucked everything up, and it's all fucked.

So what are you gonna do? (SIGHS) Hmm.

JIM: It's all your fault. Thank you.

Rachel! (DOOR SQUEAKS)

JEFF: Hey. Hi. Listen...

Uh, Rachel didn't come back. I'm worried about her. Have you seen her?

You hear stories about people falling overboard off these ships.

Oh, my God, Harry. You're insane.

What are you do... Ugh.

Thank you. Yeah, great to... Yeah.

Yeah. Okay. Great. Good hanging.

How was I supposed to know you were doing that instead of hanging off of the ship?

I was worried about you. Why?

You haven't been worried for 26 years.

I am sorry, okay?

I got overprotective, but you don't do that!

You leave somebody waiting, wondering... worried!

We don't even know who this Jeff guy is.

Maybe he's some kind of a rapist or a murderer.

I was being protective. Rachel!

You said you don't do that?

Ooh, you don't do that.

Oh, you know what else you don't do, Harry?

You don't leave your family.

Okay? And you don't get to come looking for me in the middle of the night after not looking for me my entire life.

Okay? Fine!

But we are in a strange place.

You don't know this guy. I didn't want him to take advantage of you.

Taking advantage of me? Do you mean having sex with me?

I don't want to hear this. You don't want to hear it? You're gonna.

Because he had sex with me. Big-time. And I loved it.

All three times.

You don't like that? You don't like that I am a human being who can have sex whenever I want? Well, news flash, Harry.

I've been fucking since I was 17. I'm not gonna stop, 'cause I enjoy it.

I'm not hearing this. No, Harry, we're bonding.

We're bonding, just like you wanted. We're sharing like best friends.

Am I making you uncomfortable? Are you uncomfortable?

Well, guess what? I don't care!

They're seven, so it was kind of weird, but... honestly, like... being here... in this country... and meeting all these people...

It makes you realize that you have a new... like, a second chance at happiness.

Ugh! I don't really care what you think.

You go on back to New York. Go ahead.

Get back to your job, start making a lot of money.

But all the Owens out there, they'll keep leaving you.

It is not my fault Owen left!

I invited myself on this hike, and If I made it uncomfortable, I apologize.

Fine. I'm... I'm really sorry.

I didn't mean to lead you on. No. You don't have to be sorry.

I had a vision of how my life was gonna be.

Top of my field...

Fancy dinners, corporate cards.

All of it.

I never saw myself with a family.

And then you came along.

And I was only 24.

I quit work for the first few years.

You were...

the sun in the morning and the moon at night.

But something was missing.

I started feeling like the dad who was around physically, but wishing he was somewhere else, and...

I didn't want to be that guy.

Your mom and I decided I should go back to work.

Then after a while, with... the trips away... it started to feel like a release.

Not from you, but... from the version of myself that wasn't very happy.

So that's it? You... you couldn't come visit?

You had to disappear completely?

I guess you were too young to remember. I came back every week.

But...

(CRYING) ...every time...

we had to say goodbye, it got harder and harder.

You were... you were better without me there.

And, uh...

I know. I know. And you just... You just...

I know how to play mini-golf. Okay? Okay. Fine. Fine. Go ahead.

♫ I knew her smile in an instant ♫ (BALL CLICKS)

HARRY: Oh, what happened there? Okay, well...

It's because you're in my ear. Because I'm watching? I know.

I'm going to stand here. Go ahead. Watch, just stop talking.

♫ Yes, I like piña coladas ♫

♫ And getting caught in the rain ♫

♫ I'm not much into health food ♫

♫ I am into champagne ♫

(LAUGHS) (BOTH SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

RACHEL: Whoo! ♫ Cut through all this red tape ♫

♫ At a bar called O'Malley's ♫

♫ Where we'll plan our escape ♫

(TABLEMATES CHEERING, LAUGHING)

Whoo!

Oh! Hold on. I'll be right there.


Mm, this is nice.

It is, isn't it?

Maybe Owen wasn't such a fucker after all.

This was his idea.

I think maybe I'm an asshole.

Owen and I dated in college, and we eventually broke up and lost touch.

And then, I met up with Owen again three months after my mom died.

Three months after that, he proposed... and I said yes...

because he felt familiar.

Because he felt like family.

And I did not... want to end up alone... the way she did.

(CLICKS TONGUE) I was in a cab when she died... because I had a meeting that ran long.

She was alone...

again.

I'm sorry.

I just never should have said yes to Owen. (SIGHS)

That's all.

Fear of loneliness is a very powerful thing.

(SCATTERED APPLAUSE) (LAUGHS)

(CHUCKLES) Thank you.

(LAUGHS) I'm gonna run outside for just one sec.

That was really fun. I'll meet you back in the room?

We're going to win this thing, Harry.

Are you serious? Well, that can't be.

A debt collector?

Well...

Are you sure they called looking for me?

(♫ BAND PLAYING IN DISTANCE ♫)

Bankrupt?

Well, I don't care if I'm his daughter, I'm not bailing him out.

Motherfucker!

I gotta call you back.

(SIGHS)

I'm not sure why they even have these on a cruise ship.

What do you think? I got you one.

Did you charge that to the room? What?

Because I just got a call telling me that you're fucking bankrupt.

You came here because you need money? No.

Progressive Collection Services in Los Angeles just called my office looking for me.

Your bankruptcy payments are late. Because I'm your daughter, they wanted to know where I was. Okay. Is that why you came to find me?

Because you wanted to get me before they did?

I can't believe I trusted you.

Oh, my God, I'm so stupid. I want you out of my room.

You are a selfish, cold-hearted, horrible human being. Rachel.

Was it not enough you left me when I was five?

Now you're trying to steal my money.

(SOBBING) Is all you want to do hurt me? No!

Oh, my God. Know what? You can stay. Stay.

I'm gonna sleep with Jim and Steve, and there's no way... Stop talking for two seconds!

In fact... Gabe is dead!

What?

He died. Two months ago.

I promise you, I'm not after your money.

(SNIFFLES) Yes, I'm bankrupt.

And I owe a fair amount. But I promise you, I'm dealing with it.

That was not why I came to find you.

I am sorry. They should never have called you.

(SIGHS)

My best friend died.

He was all I had in the world, and... now I'm alone.

So I came looking for you.

I'm sorry. That's not fair to you, but... that is the truth.

Why didn't you tell me that sooner?

I... I wanted to, but... (CHUCKLES)

...you were going through your own stuff, anyway and...

Well, honestly... being with you, it was nice just to forget about everything that happened.

So that's Gabe?

(SNIFFLES) What happened to him?

(SIGHS)

(CLICKS TONGUE)

He was always the organized one.

We traveled around the world for business, and he would make sure we got where we were going, and when we were supposed to get there.

He'd look after the details, you know.

Then he started making mistakes.

He'd get confused and... repeat himself.

When the doctors told us it was early-onset Alzheimer's, we were... (SIGHS)

He was just 52 years old.

We'd lost most of our clients by then, because of the mistakes and...

he didn't have any family to look after him.

So I quit working... and moved him in with me.

Eventually, I couldn't look after him alone anymore.

Had to hire some help, and that's where the money went.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Anyway...

I was gonna spread his ashes in New York, 'cause that's where he's from.

So, he was... with me that night when we, you know...

(CHUCKLING) So, along he came. I figured... the Caribbean was nicer anyway.

Wow. (CLEARS THROAT)

Sorry, I don't know what to say. (CHUCKLES)

(CRYING) I don't want your money.

I sold my house, and I'm just waiting on some paperwork to go through, and...

I've even started packing up.

I'm gonna finish the job when I get back from the cruise.

(SNIFFLES)

Where are you gonna go? I'll get an apartment or something.

A little late in the game for me to get a job-job, but...

I can do some consulting.

I'm gonna be just fine. You don't have to worry about me.

So I guess we should karaoke in Gabe's honor. (CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Yep. (CHUCKLES)

(INDISTINCT CHATTER) JIMMY: Hey, kids.

It's your old pal, Jimmy Deer, here. WOMAN: Love you, Jimmy!

Now... while I couldn't be sadder that soon this ship will be docking, WOMAN #2: Say it ain't so!

I also couldn't be gladder... that tonight we will be rockin'! Yeah! (AUDIENCE APPLAUDS, CHEERS)

JIMMY: Tonight... is my favorite night of the entire cruise.

I give to you... the Royal Caribbean's Karaoke Championship!

Hey!

(CROWD CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) My lovely assistant.

Now, wait, hold on.

I am being told by the judges that this contest is too close to call, with one couple remaining.

Are you ready for that couple? (AUDIENCE CHEERS)

JIMMY: Rachel and Harry! (CROWD CHEERS)

Hold on, let me check with the judges. Who am I kiddin'?

There's nothin' in my ear! Our winners!

Rachel and Harry! (BOTH EXCLAIMS)

JIMMY: Let's give them their crown!

(ALL CHEERING)

If it helps, we promise to name our baby Gabe.

Jim, what if it's a daughter?

Gabe-ette.

Gabriella's actually a girl's name. Let's just do Gabriella.

We could do that. (CHUCKLES) It's okay, you two.

You don't need to do that.

The reason I didn't tell you all about Gabe was because...

I didn't want to believe he was gone.

He was a good man, a good friend.

Loved karaoke.

(CHUCKLES)

We were each other's family for a long time.

I'm sure gonna miss him.

(WHISPERS) So long, pal.


Do we clap? STEVE: Babe...

Oh, Jim.

(BOTH LAUGHS)

HARRY: It's all right. It's okay. The last thing Gabe would want would be for us to be all mopey. (CHUCKLES)

Why don't we all head back inside and enjoy one final night of... unlimited sugary cocktails?

(CHUCKLES) Come on, let's go.

Hey, I was thinking maybe after this I would come to California for a few days.

Help you move?

What about work?

I was thinking about work.

Actually, it's funny, because I wasn't thinking about work, but... a few days isn't gonna make a difference.

I'd like to help.

Moving's hard work. I got a lot of stuff. (CHUCKLES)

Are you sure?

I can handle it.

I want to see where you live.

Lived. Sorry.

Isn't that what family is supposed to do?

I guess so.

Yeah. Then I'll come to California.

I'm gonna go inside.

I'll be in in a minute.

Hey, Dad?

Thanks for coming to find me.


(GULLS CAWING)

Mm-hmm? Yes. Yes.

That is the first phone call I've seen her pick up in days.

I gotta admit, she looks like she's doing very well.

Oh, she has been relating to us like a human.

I hate to brag, but you two are some of my best work.

Hello? Oh, Jim.

Okay, it was all of us. Mostly Harry. LEONARD: Thank you.

Either way, I hope we have a little girl.

Know what? I want to propose a toast. (CLEARS THROAT)

To Rachel and Harry.

You guys have made this cruise so much more fun.

And it's really nice to see you reconnect.

To forgiveness. ALL: To forgiveness.

And I'd like to add something else to this toast.

That was my boss. I am the official accounts director.

STEVE: Congratulations.

Thank you. We got Evie's chips. So... Whoo!

Strategy meeting first thing in the morning, And then, up to Upstate New York this week.

Oh. Mm...

Sorry, I think that changes our plan a little bit about me going with you to California, but...

I figured you'd understand. I do. That's fine.

I'm so... I'm really proud of you. Yeah.

And I... I'll see your place in California.

We have a ton of clients there, so... (CELL PHONE RINGS)

I will be out there. Great! I'll show you my new place.

Great. Okay, I've gotta take this. Hi.

Shirley, would you pass the salt, please? Of course.

What time does your car come? Oh. Oh, half an hour or so.

I'm really sorry that I can't stick to our plan about coming to California.

Oh, that's all right.

I'm really proud of you.

Thanks.

(CELL PHONE VIBRATES)

Oh, I gotta go. My car is here.

I have to run home before I go to the office, so... (SIGHS)

Um, when's your flight?

This afternoon.

Any idea when you might get to California?

I... I have no way of knowing, 'cause it's entirely dependent on work.

Yeah. Sure. Sure.

Look...

This week... has been...

(LAUGHS)

I'm glad I pushed you in that town car.

I'm glad that somewhere in my drunk brain, I wanted to get to know you, and find out you were not as shitty as I thought you were.

(CHUCKLES) Thank you. You're welcome.

But this is vacation, and I have to get back to real life.

Yeah.

Which I've worked very hard for. I know.

I'm... I will see you at some point.

Okay. (BOTH CHUCKLES)

Okay.

I really am proud of you.

Thanks.

I'll see ya when I see ya.

See you when I see ya.

So, I think what the game plan should be when we get up there, I will take Ben and you take Evie.

How does that sound?

Great.

She's got you staying in some guesthouse that's attached to the barn.

She says it's "magical." That was her word.

She also said something like, "You need to be near the potatoes to sell the potatoes."

Anyway, I... I got a really good feeling about this company.

I think Evie really likes you, and I have always found that my biggest successes come from when I become friends with my clients, you know?

I think you staying in the barn is a great first step.

It's like you're practically family.

♫ Why don't you just hold me? ♫

♫ Why don't you hold me and kiss me... ♫ Do you have any flights to Los Angeles?

Wait... What happened to Syracuse?

Wait, what's going on? I'm sorry, I need more vacation days.

Can you get me on a flight to LA?

I have a flight to LA in 45 minutes.

I can get you on it. RACHEL: I'll take it.

Okay. You're set, but you gotta hurry. Okay.

Who's in California?

My dad.

♫ Hold me ♫

♫ Why don't you hold me and kiss me now? ♫

♫ I want you to hold me ♫

♫ Why don't you hold me And kiss me, now? ♫

JIM: I don't care how successful you were, there is never a need for 278 ties.

You can't even wear the ones you like that often. It is insane.

That is not a word I'm supposed to use with patients.

I'm not one of your patients.

All right, then.

Oh, shit.

Hi, Steve. JIM: You saw her. Now shut the door.

(CLEARS THROAT) I had a few extra vacation days.

Well, like nine years' worth, so I figured I'd...

(CLICKS TONGUE) ...take some.

I love you, Rachel.

I never stopped loving you. (SNIFFLES)

Thank you for coming here.

It's more than I deserve. (CRYING)

(SIGHS)

You don't have to say you love me, you know.

(LAUGHS, SNIFFLES)

How about I just start by becoming inside?

Good plan.
