Marcus: Anthony! Anthony! Can you open your eyes, man? Do you know who this is? Okay, okay, okay, okay. Hold on, brother, all right? The ambulance is on its way.
Dayzee: So where can I put these that they'll be out of the way?
Stephanie: Um, well, anywhere. I mean, why didn't you just leave them in the-- in the car? We're just gonna have to repack them tomorrow.
Dayzee: Oh, I don't feel comfortable just leaving stuff and the car open. I know it's weird. (Sighs)
Stephanie: Oh, well, uh, you realize that we're gonna have a lot of wedding gifts tomorrow that we're gonna have to schlep down to the car and pack up.
Dayzee: Oh, my gosh. I'm gonna be married tomorrow.
Stephanie: Are you getting cold feet?
Dayzee: Am I crazy?
Stephanie: You realize you can change your mind. But if you do, you know, you have to give all the gifts back.
Dayzee: (Sighs) I mean, why do I even have faith in marriage? Where did that even come from? I have never seen a successful marriage, I mean, except for you and Eric, of course.
Stephanie: (Laughs) Oh, well, don't-- if you use my marriage as model, honey, you'll be in big trouble.
Stephanie: Please. (Laughs)
(Knock on door)
Donna: Heading home?
Eric: It's dark. I don't know what I'm still doing here. I'm not 35 anymore, and I'm still here. Weren't you supposed to save me from all this?
Donna: I did for a while.
Eric: Yes, you did, didn't you? But being the old workhorse I am, I couldn't get wait to get back into the traces.
Donna: You're happy, Eric.
Eric: I'm almost always happy I'm not the tortured type. I was happy with you, wasn't I?
Donna: Is "happy" the word you--you felt lucky. You thought your luck would run out. You were so convinced I was gonna throw you under the bus, you--you jumped in front of a train.
Eric: That, uh, runaway freight train named "Stephanie."
Eric: I keep doing that, don't I?
Eric: Well, maybe we both ended up where we were supposed to.
Donna: Speak for yourself. You know, I think I know why you are so philosophical tonight. Mm-hmm. It's not just nostalgia.
Eric: No? Why? Why am I?
Donna: Because you love being the father of the groom.
Eric: Yes, yes, I do.
Eric: And of the bride, for that matter.
Donna: And you get to do it all over again with Marcus.
Eric: That's a good thing, right?
Donna: I just... (sighs) I just feel like I'm... giving him up all over again.
Eric: No. Why?
Donna: I feel like I'm losing him to Stephanie, too.
Dayzee: What are you talking about? You and Eric are amazing. I mean, you guys just celebrated your how-many-eth anniversary?
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Well, yes, but that joyful occasion required quite, um, you know, a willing suspension of disbelief.
Stephanie: It hasn't been all unadulterated joy from the very first time we said "I do."
Dayzee: I realize that, and I'm not saying that. I get that it requires work.
Stephanie: Yeah, it does. And sometimes he and I worked at it, and sometimes we didn't. Listen, marriage is a marathon.
Dayzee: This is not helping my jitters, if that's what I'm having.
Stephanie: Oh? Well, what did you expect, guarantees?
Dayzee: No. I mean, I've seen more single moms than I have happily married ones.
Stephanie: Yeah, but you're different, and I think he is, too
Dayzee: Are we? I mean, good people-- they mess up all the time.
Stephanie: That's true, but you're getting married because you love him, and because you have the confidence in yourself to really believe that you can handle whatever the future brings.
Dayzee: Yeah, but still. I mean, you go your whole life thinking you're prepared for anything, but the truth is, you never really are.
Marcus: (Voice breaking) Anthony, come on, man. Don't go on me, all right? Dayzee loves you. We all love you. I-I-I didn't see you, dawg.
Marcus: Come on, man. (Sobs) You gonna be okay, all right they're comin', okay? Just--just-- just hang on. You'll be all right.
Donna: Maybe I'm selfish. You know, maybe it's just what I deserve, but I just don't think I could wake up and find that Marcus is slipping away from me again.
Eric: Donna, what are you talking about? Are you forgetting what the-- this young man adores you. You can't forget what he went through to-- to find you. He gave up his home. He gave up all of his friends...
Donna: Yeah, to--to--
Eric: Just to find you.
Donna: To find some-- something that he thought I represented-- a sense of family. But... (sighs) you know, I-I could have given him that, and I did for a while when I was with you.
Eric: Donna, I adopted him. That's not for a while, that's forever.
Donna: I know. I'll always love you for that.
Donna: I don't know Justin and I are just such loners, you know? We don't... (sighs) we don't give him a sense of home. When Marcus finally decided to marry Dayzee, he didn't come to us. He... he went to you and Stephanie, and he wants to get married in--in your house.
Eric: Well, that's because we have the room.
Eric: Donna, he spent Christmases with us and Thanksgivings and--and--and New Years, and--and he knows that Dayzee's comfortable here.
Donna: Exactly. Exactly. (Stammers) Dayzee's Stephanie's unofficial daughter practically, and--and, well, Marcus is your official son. So it builds a close-knit family around them that I... I'm never gonna be welcome into because Stephanie won't have it. And, you know, frankly I-I don't blame her.
Dayzee: I know I'm forgetting something for tomorrow.
Stephanie: Oh, really?
Stephanie: Uh, okay, let's do this. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."
Dayzee: Nope, got all those categories covered.
Stephanie: All right, um, minister?
Dayzee: Yep, we booked Marcus's.
Stephanie: Oh, how nice.
Stephanie: Um, you haven't told me who's going to give you away.
Dayzee: Anthony, I mean, if he can make it. He wasn't positive.
Stephanie: Oh, well, why couldn't he?
Dayzee: Oh, because he has a life, and it's short notice, but I'm hoping he can.
Stephanie: I'm not sure about that one.
Dayzee: Well, then you don't have to ask him to give you away the next time you get married.
Stephanie: (Laughs) No, no, that's not what I--
Stephanie: Well, come on. He's a sweet man, but you honestly have to say he's not our most reliable employee.
Dayzee: Yeah, well, when you've been told you're unemployable five times a week for your entire life, it's understandable to forget that you're actually employed. Besides, Anthony has been my guardian and my protector. He was the first real gentleman that I ever actually met in the streets, being fierce is a survival skill, but not for Anthony. (Chuckles) He always had his music.
Stephanie: I guess what I'm simply trying to say is, if he doesn't show up, do you have a plan "b"?
Dayzee: (Chuckles) I don't really belong to anyone, so no one can give me away. Besides, it's just an honorary thing. And if you ask me who I want to honor, it's you and it's Anthony.
Stephanie: Oh. Okay.
Man: What's his B.P.?
Woman: B.P. 102 over 80. SpO2--88.
Man: Heart rate 82.
Woman: Rib fractures, possible pneumothorax.
Doctor: Cranial bleeding?
Doctor: Get a full body C.T
Woman 2 (over loud speaker): Dr. Valentino to the O.R. please.
Doctor: Where exactly was the impact?
Marcus: What? I don't know, man. It was dark. I didn't see him.
Man: Doctor, we need a drug screen also.
Doctor: Follow me.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Doctor: Have him checked out.
Marcus: Doc, how is he?
Doctor: You shouldn't be here. Officer?
Marcus: No, no, the nurse said I could wait here.
Doctor: You don't seem to be grasping the situation. You are not a family member.
Marcus: He doesn't have any family.
Doctor: I happen to believe that he would not want the man who ran him down at his side.
Marcus: Don't make assumptions.
Doctor: You're right. I'm sorry. I'm sure it was an accident. You're obviously an honest guy, and it's commendable that you stayed with him. But Mr. Walker is my patient now, and I must insist.
Man: Here he is, Lieutenant.
Lt. Baker: Hello, Marcus. I'm sure you won't mind answering a few questions for me.
Dayzee: Sure, all through the shower, he's texting me constantly, but now that I can answer him, he has nothing to say.
Stephanie: You realize just because you're marrying a man, he's not gonna change.
Dayzee: Well, I don't need him to change. I love him.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Yeah, you just don't want him... (laughs) to get involved with the likes of Amber again, right?
Dayzee: Oh, my gosh, please tell me that that is not a mistake that somebody makes twice.
Stephanie: (Sighs) Except for Brooke’s son.
Dayzee: Oh, gosh. Am I making a colossal mistake here?
Stephanie: No, now stop this. Wait. Wait. Here. No. Look, you're marrying a man who's very easy on the eyes and who loves women, and women love him.
Dayzee: (Laughs) Yes.
Stephanie: So there are hazards built into that, naturally, but, honey, take it from an old hand this is just the pre-wedding jitters. That's all. Nothing-- nothing to be worried about.
Dayzee: So every woman goes through this?
Stephanie: Honey, every man and woman goes through this the night before their wedding.
Dayzee: (Chuckles) What about you? What was the night before your wedding like?
Stephanie: I don't remember.
Dayzee: Yes, you do. Stephanie, if you don't tell me, I'm gonna fire you as my matron of honor.
Stephanie: Okay, I'll tell you. I'll share this with you for a very specific reason. It was probably the worst night I had in my life. I was very young, of course. I was pregnant, and I used that pregnancy to get Eric to marry me. There were a lot of secrets involved in that pregnancy that didn't come out for many, many, many years. And I'm telling you this because I don't want you and Marcus to ever keep secrets from one another. You can't have a strong, healthy marriage if you do.
Dayzee: Promise. (Chuckles)
Stephanie: That's my girl.
Lt. Baker: Interesting.
Marcus: Look, Lieutenant Baker I don't drink, nor do I do drugs, okay?
Lt. Baker: That's what your, uh, urine and breath tests say, too. That's what makes it interesting.
Man: The cafeteria was closed, sir.
Lt. Baker: So what is that?
Man: Well, it's the only kind of hot dog they had, sir.
Lt. Baker: You microwaved it?
Man: Yes, sir.
Lt. Baker: I don't see any mustard. (Sighs) It wasn't raining. It wasn't foggy. Street lights were adequate. You weren't under the influence, and yet, you hit man, a rather large man, who was what, uh, crossing the street? What, was he jaywalking or something?
Marcus: I don't know, man.
Lt. Baker: Well, if you don't know, who does?
Marcus: I never saw him.
Lt. Baker: What, was he on his hands and knees, crossing the street that way?
Marcus: I couldn't tell you.
Lt. Baker: Looking for a contact lens?
Marcus: He doesn't wear contact lenses.
Lt. Baker: Oh, you know him well enough to say?
Marcus: I don't-- he's real close to a-- he's real close to someone I'm close to, okay?
Lt. Baker: This must be terrible for you.
Marcus: Yeah. It is.
Lt. Baker: Well, start at the top. Tell me what happened.
(Cell phone rings)
Stephanie: Marcus? Marcus? No, you cannot disturb her at this late hour.
Marcus: I really need to speak to her, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Uh, no, the bride needs her rest. I've just finally gotten her off to bed.
Marcus: Well, the thing is-- is I need to see her.
Stephanie: No. (Scoffs) Out of the question.
Marcus: Look, I-I would come over there, but... I don't think they'll let me.
Stephanie: Marcus, let me tell you something. Everybody has known for hundreds of years it's bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding. Honey, haven't the two of you had enough bad luck in your lives?
Marcus: Stephanie, look I wouldn't ask if it wasn't important, okay?
Stephanie: Really? And how important can it be? Wait, I know you're nervous. Marcus... (sighs) the groom always gets nervous, and I can understand why-- because it's a big deal. "Until death us do part." I mean this is serious business.
Stephanie: So here's my advice. Get a good night's rest, and we will see you in the morning.
Dayzee: Oh, there it is. I forgot my phone.
Stephanie: Oh. You take your phone to bed?
Dayzee: Well, yeah. How else am I gonna set an alarm?
Stephanie: Wha-- well, an alarm clock.
Dayzee: Do they still make those?
Stephanie: Oh, take the dagger from my heart.
Stephanie: Marcus called.
Dayzee: Aw, what did he want?
Stephanie: Uh, to come and see you.
Stephanie: Oh, come on. It's just one night.
Dayzee: I know. You're right.
Stephanie: I know. I'm always right. (Laughs)
Stephanie: Hey, you seem to have gotten over your nerves okay.
Dayzee: Yes, I mean, in this house, it's hard not to. It's so comfortable.
Stephanie: Oh, is the feather bed okay? I always worry it's too soft.
Dayzee: No, it's like sleeping on air. (Sighs) Gosh, I was laying there, and I was just thinking about how I would rather curl up every night next to Marcus than share a bed by myself. I mean, that's so weird, because I didn't used to be like that, but I guess I've changed. Hmm. New perspective.
Stephanie: Well a lovely perspective on a wedding eve.
Stephanie: (Laughs) But don't forget, there'll come a day when you want to put a pillow over his face, but don't worry about that now.
Dayzee: (laughs) Okay, I won't. Thanks for being my friend. I love you.
Stephanie: I love you, too, honey.
Stephanie: If you find an alarm clock in your wedding gifts, you'll know who it's from.
Dayzee: Ha ha.
Marcus: Doc? Lieutenant Baker, can you please ask him how Anthony is doing for me?
Lt. Baker: Is Mr. Walker conscious yet, doc?
Doctor: No, I'm afraid not. But his vital signs are improving. His brain wave activity is good. We aren't seeing any skull fractures or hematomas, so there's good cause for optimism.
Lt. Baker: Thank you. Well, there's not much news, but what there is is good. I suggest you just go on back and get sleep.
Marcus: What you mean? You mean, am I going-- am I going to jail?
Lt. Baker: Did you break any laws?
Marcus: Well, I guess that's for you to decide.
Lt. Baker: I'm not going to have any trouble finding you tomorrow, am I?
Marcus: No. No problem.
Lt. Baker: And I would advise you to, um, cancel any out-of-town plans that you may have over the next few days.
Lt. Baker: Oh, um, Marcus, do me a favor, would you? Uh, text me your phone number, will you? So I can have it on my phone.
Marcus: Yeah, sure.
Lt. Baker: Now.
Lt. Baker: Good. Thank you. Oh, um, and one more thing, too. Um, now you're driving. Street lights are on, visibility's clear. And suddenly you feel and hear the impact of you hitting something, something that you never saw. Was there some distraction? It just seems odd that you never saw the man.
