Episode #10259

Provided by Suzanne

Adam: They arrested you?

Scott: Not just me. They arrested Annie, too.

Liza: On what grounds?

Jesse: We've got a video recording of Annie admitting that she covered up facts about Stuart's murder. And Scott helped. They're both being charged with accessory after the fact.

Scott: Happy thanksgiving.

Adam: You've got to help my family. Get these charges against Annie and Scott dropped.

J.R.: No, no. Forget it. Liza came here to defend you. Annie's on her own.

Annie: Colby? What happened? Is Adam all right?

Colby: He's in jail, waiting to go on trial for the murder of my uncle, when you're the one who should be locked up.

Annie: Well, clearly the police were already here. I'm being charged with being an accessory for protecting your father.

Colby: Good. You deserve to be punished. My family has barely survived you.

Annie: You know, I know you were starting to feel replaced by my baby. But I was hoping you would've bonded with your new little brother or sister. I'm sure Adam would've still, you know, maybe loved you just as much.

Colby: No, this isn't about me.

Annie: No, it's not. It's about me. I am Adam's wife. I just lost my baby and nearly died. Isn't that punishment enough?

Colby: Not even close.

Amanda: I haven't slept. I'm barely eating, and what I do eat I can't keep down.

Angie: I take it you haven't told Jake about what happened with David.

Amanda: How am I supposed to tell my husband that I had sex with another man?

Angie: Same way you told me--be honest. Explain your reasons.

Amanda: I'm not sure that I understand them anymore. I just--I knew that I had to get pregnant. I was ovulating. We were late for the insemination appointment, and we were stranded on the side of the road.

Angie: Uh-huh. Yeah. Because David conveniently ran out of gas.

Amanda: I couldn't wait another month, Angie. I just couldn't. The sooner I got pregnant, the sooner I could get away from him. I have to get my life back with Jake.

Angie: Now you're lying to him.

Amanda: You know, I just keep hoping that I'm gonna wake up and realize that this is all part of some horrible nightmare.

Angie: Oh, Amanda, what are you going to do when that doesn't happen?

Doctor: It's definitely a motility problem. I can run the test a third time, but the results will be the same.

David: How long have I had this condition?

Doctor: No way to know exactly.

David: Just a rough estimate. It can't be more than a few months. I fathered a child less than a year ago.

Doctor: The way these look, I'm not sure that's possible. 

Colby: You trashed everyone you ever knew. You let Kendall rot in prison away from her kids. Hell, you forced your own daughter to lie about the murder she saw!

Annie: Yeah. And I did all of that to save your father.

Colby: So you could marry him, get your claws into him. You even dragged Scott down with you.

Annie: No, I care very deeply about Scott.

Colby: Yeah, like a praying mantis. Tell me, was the alimony check you'll get after divorcing my dad worth it?

Annie: I didn't marry Adam for his money.

Colby: Right. That's why when he collapsed at the wedding, all you cared about was him saying "I do" before the paramedics took him away.

Annie: If I'm such a gold digger, then why didn't I turn Adam in after the ceremony, huh? I could've walked away with his entire fortune.

Colby: Except you still needed him to help you get custody of Emma. You only kept him around because you weren't done using him.

Annie: No. I didn't tell Adam that he shot Stuart because I knew the truth, Colby, would've killed him.

Colby: You're just a liar!

Annie: Colby, when Adam realized that he killed his own brother, he was about to put a gun to his own head.

Adam: I'm not gonna let Annie rot in jail when her only crime is shielding me.

J.R.: "Her only crime"?

Adam: Yeah. My life without Annie means nothing to me.

J.R.: You know, Marissa talked me into coming down here, said that you might need some family support. But it's obvious that you don't. You just want to throw Annie in our faces again.

Adam: What I want is your support for her.

J.R.: Oh, ok. Ok, here it is. Have a nice life in prison together.

Marissa: J.R., Wait.

J.R.: No. Adam made his choice. So have I.

Adam: Um, thank you for--for representing us.

Liza: Uh, whoa. Whoa. I have not agreed to that.

Randi: Ok, how much oregano am I supposed to put in?

Frankie: Looks like either 3 teaspoons or 8. I have to check.

Randi: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Don't even think about calling your mother.

Frankie: It couldn't hurt just to ask.

Randi: Um, no. She already thinks I'm a mess in the kitchen. I'm not about to call her and prove her right.

Frankie: Ooh.

[Knock on door]

Frankie: Come in.

Brot: Happy thanksgiving.

Frankie: Hey.

Brot: I got some apple pie. Yeah? Where do you guys want it?

Randi: I guess just put it down over there.

Brot: Cool.

Frankie: Hey. Take a look at this and tell me if this is a 3 or an 8 on the oregano.

Brot: Whoa. Uh, I'm gonna go with a 3. If I'm wrong, you just add more later.

Randi: Hmm. Smart man. You see? I told you we don't need your mama.

Brot: Whoa. Whoa, wait a minute. I thought Jesse and Angie were coming over.

Frankie: Oh, yeah. I mean, they're coming by later. Natalia will be here any minute.

Brot: Wait. Was this all--was this a setup, man?

Frankie: Huh? Why would you think that? What? Because you're both single? Both cops?

Randi: Both look really cute together?

Frankie: I don't know man. Face it. You and Natalia are made for each other.

[Randi makes kissing noises]

[Randi giggles]

Jake: Hey. What are you doing here? Is the baby ok?

Amanda: Uh, I'm fine. He--yes.

Angie: Since Amanda witnessed the fight between you and David, I asked her to tell me all the facts before your disciplinary hearing.

Amanda: I told her that it was a complete misunderstanding and that, you know, it was not your fault. It was my fault for going along with David's insane plan.

Jake: Listen, I hit David because he's an ass. You don't have to blame yourself.

Angie: Uh, listen. We should get going. The board's waiting.

Jake: Right. The board's waiting. See you.

Amanda: Um, excuse me. Where's the bathroom? Nurse: Right down the hall.

Amanda: Can you watch him for a minute? Nurse: Oh, I got to pick up some blood work from the lab. But daycare's on the--

David: It's all right. I'll keep an eye on him while his mother's gone. Nurse: Are you sure?

David: Yeah, yeah. Don't worry about it. Go. You have tests to run. Hey. So do I. Protesting is awesome.

Amanda: Oh, excuse me. I'm looking for my baby. I left him with a nurse. He was in a stroller. His name is Trevor. Nurse: Dr. Hayward's son?

Amanda: Yes. Have you seen him? Where have you been?

David: You took the words right out of my mouth. I was on my way to the disciplinary hearing when I ran into Trevor with a nurse. She said you were getting sick?

Amanda: I'm fine.

[Pager rings]

David: Oh. I'm running late. We'll talk about this later? Ok. Man: I can't wait for dr. Hayward much longer.

Angie: I've paged him twice. He should be here any minute.

David: I'm sorry I'm late. It was a personal matter. Actually, a personal matter is what brought us here today, huh?

Jake: Your defective personality brought us here today.

David: As some of you may know, dr. Martin's wife and I have a child together. Recently we've decided to try and have another one--through artificial insemination, of course.

Angie: We're here to discuss the fight, not your arrangement with Amanda.

David: Well, see, I beg to differ, chief. That fight was a direct result of this arrangement. Now, I'm sure many of you can understand how difficult this must be for dr. Martin, having to stand on the sidelines while his wife and I make a life together.

Jake: First of all, don't ever speak for me. Thank you. And secondly, when this child is born, you're gonna have nothing to do with my wife.

David: Well, as you can see, tempers tend to flare. So I have a suggestion. Why don't we do opposite work shifts? It might work. Ok, I'll take the days, he can have nights. After all, I do have a family.

Angie: You know, I think it's a good idea--space between you two. David, finish up today, and then take the rest of the week off. Call it a long thanksgiving with your son.

Jake: Really?

Angie: We'll reschedule work changes Monday morning, and Jake will rejoin the rotation tomorrow, if everyone agrees. All right. In that case, meeting's adjourned.

David: Great. Thank you.

Jake: Can I ask you something? What was that about?

Angie: I gave him time off so you wouldn't lose your job.

Jake: Angie, I don't care about my job right now. I'm losing my family. I'm losing my wife. Ever since that insemination, she's shutting down. She's not talking to me.

Angie: Well, pressuring her is not going to help. Listen, you need to be the safe port in the storm she's going through.

Jake: She knows she can talk to me about anything.

Angie: Well, then let her do it in her own time. Ok? Answers will come when she's ready.

Liza: Well, if I can prove that David drugged you into a temporary state of insanity, I can get you acquitted. But Annie confessed on videotape to covering up a murder. I can't do anything with that.

Adam: Fine. Then go. Why do you want to waste more time here?

Liza: Adam, Adam, let me help you. Otherwise, you are going to spend the rest of your life in prison.

Adam: Living in a mansion without Annie is worse than prison.

Liza: All right. I--I will talk to Annie and I will talk to Scott, and I will see if they can offer up anything that will mount a defense.

Adam: Thank you.

Liza: I'm not promising that it will get us anywhere.

Adam: Well, just try to keep an open mind. If you can do that, maybe the jury will, too.

Colby: Spin it any way you want. You blew my family apart. You made my dad choose your little fantasy life over his own kids.

Annie: You and J.R. Are the ones who turned their backs, not Adam.

Colby: I want him home.

Annie: So do I.

Colby: Then do something to get him out of this mess.

J.R.: Where is he?

Colby: Who?

Marissa: Little Adam. His school called, and they sent him over here with severe stomach pains.

J.R.: He's getting an ultrasound right now. Come on. Yeah, looks like we're going to be the first...

Brot: It would never work between me and Natalia. She's too much of a control freak, and she's always got to be best at everything.

Randi: What's wrong with being the best at everything?

Brot: Oh, I didn't say she is the best. Matter of fact, I'm getting through the academy in half the time that it took her to get through it.

Randi: Oh. So modest.

Brot: Point is, she can't accept it. She's always looking for an opportunity to throw her seniority in my face.

Randi: Ok, have you realized that that might be her way of flirting?

Brot: Flirting? Randi, come on. Natalia has no interest in partnering with me on or off the job. Now that we got that out of the way, what else can I do to help?

[Knock on door]

Brot: I--I'll get the door.

Randi: Yeah, you do that. Thank you.

Brot: Ohh.

Frankie: You're late.

Natalia: You're stanky. Man: Hey, Brot. Good to see you, man.

Brot: Yeah. You, too, Carlos.

Natalia: What's up, Brot? Hey, I hope you don't mind. But Carlos and I--we were talking on patrol, and he doesn't have anywhere else to go.

Frankie: You know what? Just do better. Be better. You didn't know Brot was coming?

Natalia: Yes, I knew.

Joe: How about here? Does it hurt here?

Little Adam: Real bad.

Joe: Yeah?

J.R.: Hey, buddy. Hey. How is he?

Joe: Let's--let's talk out in the corridor here. Excuse me.

J.R.: Is it serious?

Joe: Well, physically there doesn't appear to be any problem at all. The ultrasound shows nothing: No masses, no blood, no appendicitis. Now, he says that it hurts. But when I pushed, he didn't flinch.

J.R.: What are you saying?

Joe: I'm saying I think it's psychosomatic.

J.R.: You think he's making it up?

Joe: Oh, no. No, nothing like that. But children sometimes develop tummy aches when they're troubled by something else, you know, possibly something that they really don't understand.

J.R.: Like when a grandfather confesses to murder?

Joe: Yeah. It's very hard for a kid to deal with that.

J.R.: I'm a grown man. I still don't know how.

Scott: So Adam won't fight unless Annie and I are part of the deal? Is that it?

Liza: Which I told him was absolutely insane. He is throwing everything away for that woman.

Scott: You don't get it, do you? Look, whether they go to prison or not, on some level this is a happy ending for them regardless.

Liza: Really? And how is going to prison a happy ending?

Scott: Adam was lost in his own mind. And he needed to be protected while he was there, and then he needed to be let out gently. And Annie did all that for him. She would do anything for him. And now he's doing the same for her.

Liza: All right, so I get Adam's motivation. I'll even buy Annie's. But what about you, hmm? What was your motive in all of this? What were you doing helping her to hide the truth in the murder?

Scott: I lost my father. So saving my uncle was the one way to hold onto the only piece of him that I had left.

Liza: Wow. Then I am--I'm truly sorry for you.

Scott: Thank you.

Liza: And if Annie really does love Adam, then I...I guess I feel bad for her, too.

Scott: I don't think I'll ever be able to let go, Liza.

Amanda: Oh. Hey, is the meeting over? Where's Jake?

David: He's still with Angie.

Amanda: You know exactly why he hit you, and you really deserved it, too. But I'm sure you went in there, you played the victim card. You made sure he was suspended, right?

David: Well, actually, I was the one who was relieved of duty for a few days. But I'm looking at the positive. I can't expect you to take care of Trevor on your own while you're so queasy, right?

Amanda: I told you I'm fine.

David: Well, that's the way it is with morning sickness. It comes in waves. One minute you're fine, the next you're puking your guts out.

Amanda: Oh, my god, you really are obsessed. Just because you want me to be pregnant doesn't mean that I am.

David: Ok, fine. You know, there is an easy way to figure it out. Come on. I'll take you to the lab. We'll run a test right now. We'll pick up a home pregnancy


Amanda: I don't need a test to tell me I'm not pregnant.

David: Well, you can exhibit symptoms like nausea just days after conception. Why not have a test while we're here?

Amanda: I need to get Trevor home.

David: Ok, fine. Well, then we'll stop at the pharmacy on the way out and we'll pick up a home pregnancy test.

Amanda: Why are you rushing? The results are gonna be the same now or later. Why do you keep pushing me?

David: I'm pushing now? You're kidding, right? You're the one who's been pushing to have this deal over with so you can get on with your life.

Amanda: It wasn't supposed to get done in the back of a car.

David: Amanda, come on. That's not what's bothering you. You're afraid that if these test results come back positive, you're gonna be carrying a secret with that baby. And as your belly gets a bigger, so will the lie.

Amanda: What do you want me to say, David? That I hate lying to Jake? Big news flash.

David: I'm not the one who wanted to keep this a secret. That was your decision. If you want to tell Jake the truth, go right ahead. Tell him.

Amanda: You would love for me to hurt him like that. Payback for keeping Trevor from you?

David: You and I did this for Trevor so that we can give him a little brother or sister, right?

Amanda: I pray that we did not make a baby, because I want nothing to remind me of that night.

David: I think that's the way you felt before Trevor was born, right? You didn't really want him?

Amanda: I didn't know who the father was then. It was very confusing.

David: Yeah. No, you're right. It was confusing. But, Amanda, come on. I mean, can you even imagine your life without Trevor now? Really? No. Absolutely not. You love this little boy too much, right? And I'm sure you're thankful every single day that he's alive and that he's with you. Well, that's exactly how you're gonna feel with this new baby regardless of how he or she was conceived.

J.R.: Hey, pal. Dr. Joe says your tummy hurts.

Little Adam: Real bad.

J.R.: Hmm. Well, I want to help make it better. But first, I have to understand why it hurts. Did something happen at school? I mean, other than the usual-- books and classes? Somebody say something to you? Something that you didn't expect?

Little Adam: They were saying stuff about grandpa.

Marissa: Who was? The other kids?

Little Adam: The teachers.

J.R.: That must have been pretty upsetting.

Little Adam: Did grandpa hurt uncle Stuart?

J.R.: What happened to uncle Stuart was an accident.

Colby: Yeah. Grandpa never meant to hurt him.

J.R.: Just like when you accidentally hit Robby with that baseball? It doesn't make you a bad person. It doesn't make grandpa Adam a bad person either. See? Look, people are gonna say a lot of mean things to make us feel ashamed. But no matter what, we have to remember that we love him. No mater what. We just got to make sure that grandpa doesn't forget that either.

Annie: What do you want?

Liza: Adam wants me to represent you.

Annie: Right. And you just jumped at that chance? Why? So you can make sure I'm locked up for life?

Liza: I'm here to help you because Adam wants me to. He says if I can't get you off, he would rather spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Annie: Ok. Um, so how would you get me acquitted?

Liza: I don't think I can, given your past and your recorded confession. But I tried telling that to Adam, and he just won't listen.

Annie: He loves me.

Liza: Ok. So what do you think I should do, hmm? Listen, you come up with a defense, I will do my best to try to get you off.

Annie: I don't know. I mean, I can't exactly keep using temporary insanity. It doesn't make it very temporary.

Liza: What about demonic possessions? Listen, you and I both know that there is no way to defend what you've done.

Brot: I got to tell you, Carlos. Friends, beer, and a two-point conversion--thanksgiving doesn't get any better than that, right?

Carlos: Yes, sir.

Frankie: Wow. So bringing Carlos home to meet the family? You guys got to be at least a little serious.

Natalia: You know, what's serious is you two trying... [Whispers] To shove some other guy down my throat.

Frankie: Hey, Brot is not "some other guy." He's a good man when he served in Iraq, and he's a good man now. Give him a chance.

Randi: Yeah. Carlos is. Those boys are having a ball.

Brot: You crazy, man.

Natalia: Now, what's the joke? I want to laugh.

Brot: Oh, nothing. Just a little football humor.

Natalia: Ha ha ha ha ha.

Carlos: No big thing.

Jesse: Take him down to lockup.

Angie: Scott? Did you arrest Scott?

Jesse: You know what? For months everybody in this town has been on me to free Kendall. Now that I finally have enough to charge the right person, everybody's bitching--Liza, Marissa, you.

Angie: Whoa, whoa, whoa, sweetheart. It was just a question, not an accusation.

Jesse: I'm sorry. It's one of those days.

Angie: Yeah, I've had a rough one myself. I spent most of it playing referee for Jake and David.

Jesse: Why is it when you get what you want, it's never what you thought it would be?

Angie: Hmm. I'm finally chief of staff, and, um, it turns out to be the biggest headache. I mean, I ought to be thankful, and all I do is complain.

Jesse: Thanks. And me. For months, months trying to clear Kendall. Turns out Adam shot Stuart. It doesn't feel good. Trying to get Kendall back with her kids--I mean, it was supposed to be all worth it.

Angie: But the cost is too high.

Jesse: I'm telling you, man. This murder has, like, ripped so many families apart.

Angie: Just like north's did to ours. Had us doubting each other, keeping secrets. At least Madison is out of our lives. What?

Jesse: It's from Madison.

Jesse: She slipped me that note at confusion when her father was taking her back to the hospital.

Angie: Did she seem scared?

Jesse: Well, something was off. It's obvious she was saying what her father wanted her to say. She seemed like she was drugged. Frankie noticed it too.

Angie: Did you show this to Frankie?

Jesse: No. I didn't want him to get sucked back in just in case it was another one of her games.

Angie: Well, what are you going to do?

Jesse: I put a tail on Beardsley, and I called Madison's hospital. It all checks out.

Angie: Then why do you still have the note?

Jesse: Because what if--in all my rage toward that woman, what if I miss something? What if she really is in trouble?

Angie: Jesse, you help people. This is what you do. This is who you are. That is what Madison is counting on. No more. Not with this woman. We need to save something for our family.

Natalia: Get your hands...stop. You're gonna ruin it.

Brot: I meant to ask you, man. Tomorrow there's gonna be a pickup game behind the church. You want to come?

Carlos: Yeah. I'd be down with that.

Brot: That's what I'm talking about.

Carlos: All right.

Natalia: Brot, um, they just ran out of butter. So she asked that we go to the store.

Frankie: Oh, no. We got butter right here.

Natalia: Margarine. So we should really get to the store.

Brot: All right, cool. Later, man.

Natalia: What are you doing?!

Brot: What?

Natalia: First you move in on my job, then on Carlos? What's next? You gonna adopt my father?

Brot: First of all, I wasn't "moving in on" Carlos.

Natalia: Whatever.

Brot: Second of all, we're just sitting there having some beers and watching the game.

Natalia: And making plans to do this all again tomorrow?

Brot: You know what your problem is? You're jealous because you wanted some alone time with me.

Natalia: Dream on, soldier!

Brot: Why can't you just admit that you like me?

Natalia: I do not like you!

Brot: Yes, you do! You like me.

Frankie: So, uh, Carlos, can I get you another beer? You good?

Carlos: I'm good, man.

Frankie: Oh. He's good.

Natalia: It's not funny, Brot.

Annie: You're right. When a jury hears that I shielded Adam by letting people think my own daughter shot Stuart, my case is done.

Liza: Well, I'm glad that you see it like that. So how do we convince Adam of this?

Annie: You can't. He loves me too much.

Liza: So what can I do to save him?

Annie: Take the case like Adam wants. And then when we go to court, I'll plead guilty. I'll say I manipulated Adam. I used his grief to keep him and Scott quiet until after the wedding.

Liza: Why are you so willing to take the heat for him now?

Annie: Because I love Adam, and this is the only way to save him.

Liza: Wow. You really do love him, don't you?

Annie: Yeah. More than my own freedom. Please? Let me do this for him.

J.R.: I don't know how we can help Adam if he doesn't want to help himself.

Marissa: Isn't that the time when someone needs help the most? When he can't find his own way?

J.R.: Marissa, I've always appreciated that you were there for me. But there was a point where I had to fight for myself.

Colby: Yeah. I mean, we're doing all this fighting for dad. He's given up, and Annie won't let go.

J.R.: What did she say to you?

Colby: Just a bunch of garbage. She wants dad for her own selfish reasons, and he's going along with it. It's like she's brainwashed him.

J.R.: I know. I keep trying to help. You can't help a man who's lost his soul.

Marissa: Look, just don't forget what you told little Adam about your dad.

J.R.: That shooting uncle Stuart was an accident?

Marissa: No. I mean that no matter what, you have to remember that you will always love him. In the end, it's all about love.

Jake: Happy thanksgiving.

Amanda: To you, too.

Jake: Where's the little one?

Amanda: It was getting late, so I dropped him off at Wildwind on the way over here. Jake, you didn't have to go to all this trouble.

Jake: You know, I was thinking to myself thanksgiving--it sort of has become all about football games and how much can a person eat, you know, and I'd like to bring it back to the real meaning.

Amanda: Jake--

Jake: No, I--you know, I gave it a lot of thought, and I figured it out. I'm actually a very lucky guy. I got a beautiful little boy. I got an amazing wife. You know, I--I'm a lucky guy. Hey, what? Honey, come on. It's gonna be ok. It's ok.

Amanda: No, it's not. Jake, it's never gonna be ok again.

Jake: Well, listen, whatever it is--whatever it is, let me help you. What can I do?

Amanda: Try to forgive me.

Joe: And since you've been such a good patient, I'm going to let you pick out a surprise from the goodie box.

Little Adam: Can aunt Colby pick out a surprise too?

Joe: Oh, absolutely. Yeah. Want to come down? Ohh! There we go.

Marissa: Hey. You handled that really well with little Adam. He's so lucky to have such a good father.

J.R.: Yeah. Well, while my father keeps rejecting my help, clinging to Annie. He's not even being drugged anymore. He's making the choice.

Marissa: Can you even imagine that he might just, you know, actually love her?

J.R.: No. He's fooling himself. He's desperate to have her love him, and she can't do that. Annie just loves herself.

Marissa: People can change, you know. You should know that better than anyone.

J.R.: Well, first of all, you have to want to change. And she can't do that. She's not capable of sacrifice. Even when it comes to saving the man she supposedly loves.

Liza: Well, I just spoke with Annie. And--well, she made a very compelling argument. So I will take on all of your cases, including Scott.

Adam: Well, I told you there's nothing she wouldn't do for me.

Liza: Yes, she made that very clear.

Adam: Yeah. Well, now you're back on board, let's get down to business.

Liza: All right. Let me know how'd like to proceed.

Adam: Start by giving me a phone call.

[Phone rings]

Annie: Hello?

Adam: Hello, my angel. Yes, I just talked to Liza. She's willing to work for all of us.

Annie: That's wonderful news, Adam.

Adam: Yeah. Well, all thanks to you. I don't know what you did, but with Liza behind us, we're gonna beat this thing.

Annie: Yeah. Um, Adam, if for some reason I don't get out of this...

Adam: No, no. Don't talk like that. Don't even think like that. Liza is an excellent lawyer. She'll make them understand that what you did, you did for love.

Annie: For loving you, Adam. Don't ever forget that.

Jake: Listen, there's nothing that you could possibly do that would ever make me stop loving you, ok?

Amanda: I am so sorry.

Jake: Honey, I can help you, but you have to talk to me. I can't do anything unless you talk to me, please.

Amanda: I had sex with David.

Jake: What?

Amanda: I had sex with David.

[Phone rings]

David: Dr. Hayward.

Doctor: I have the DNA results back.

David: And?

Doctor: Are you sitting down?

Angie: Ahh. You can smell the aroma out here.

Randi: Hi.

Angie: Oh, my goodness. Look at that, sweetheart.

Randi: Do you want something to drink?

Frankie: Have a seat. Have a seat.

Carlos: I think I'm gonna take off.

Natalia: Wait. Why? I mean, we're just getting started.

Carlos: Yeah, I know, and I'm starting to feel like a third wheel--or like a seventh wheel, actually.

Natalia: No, Carlos. I mean, there's plenty of room. You should stay.

Carlos: Look, thanksgiving should be spent with people you love. I still have time to catch a train and go see my mom. You take care, ok?

Angie: Randi? Randi, I tell you this has got to be the best stuffing I've ever tasted. Bar none.

Jesse: Hear, hear. [Taps glass]

Angie: What's so funny?

Jesse: Hey, hey. Can I have your attention, please?

Natalia: Sounds like a speech.

Jesse: Not a speech. You know, sort of more like a feeling. I know I look at all of you sitting around this table. And even in this world that seems to be falling apart at the seams, so many people in pain, too many people suffering, I'm just so grateful, thankful to have you all in my life.

Singer: Built a home deep inside of me

Jesse: And all of us sitting here right now know exactly what it feels like to be thankful. So I'd like to shout out a big up to the man upstairs. A big thank-you, right? And whatever happens in the coming year, I hope that we can all find ourselves around another beautiful table with beautiful people with even more to be thankful for.

Singer: After you

Randi: Ok, cheers to that.

Natalia: Cheers to that. I'd call that a toast--or a room, you know.
