Spinelli: It's done. The Jackal has ascertained the location of the opposing forces. They gather as we speak.

Jason: I'm gonna need you in the field tonight.

Spinelli: The Jackal stands ready and eager as always.

Jason: You've come a long way, Spinelli. Not only are you the tech genius, you are my best soldier. You're reliable and fearless. I've never seen anything like you in the field.

Maxie: You're gonna take that bottle, and you're gonna like it. My boobs are closed. Spinelli, I thought that you were gonna start helping me. [Gasps] I said no killing.

Spinelli: Look, could the bombastic one take it down a notch. The Jackal must do what the Jackal must do. Men of danger don't cave in the face of nagging wives.

Maxie: Oh. Heh. Nagging wives. You think that I wanted this? I told you over and over and over again that I did not wanna get married, but you go on your knees and practically beg me.

Spinelli: [Laughs]

Maxie: What happened to all that romantic, fair Maximista stuff?

[Knock on door] [Scoffs]

Lulu: You heard me. Bump Angie from the cover and then throw her off the train for all I care. Heh. Gee, guess I'm not impressed. Well, of course I can do it. I'm editor in chief. Couture is mine. Whatever I say goes. Yeah, well, I've had it with these high-maintenance celebrities. I'm Lulu Spencer. I make my own celebrities. Look, I gotta go. Ciao.

Child: [Crying]

Lulu: I'm sorry. I only have a second. I'm off to the spring collection.

Maxie: In Paris?

Lulu: Where else, silly? I'm gonna be gone for a month or so, so I wanted to say good-bye to my B.F.F. and all my adorable little godchildren. Oh, you -- you're...cute.

Maxie: I'm so jealous I could scream!

Lulu: Oh, of my empty life? Why? It's just one pointless fashion show or party after another with the same nauseatingly beautiful people and their oh, so predictable haute couture. I mean, what you have here is... Real.

[Knock on door]

Maxie: [Sighs] There you go. [Winces]

Mac: Why didn't I just kill the Jackal? Why didn't I just kill him? I just could have killed him.

Maxie: Is it today already?

Robin: Breaks my heart having to pick up and drop off uncle Mac at Shadybrook every week, but ever since he lost his mind at your wedding, seeing you is all he really has to look forward to.

Maxie: Ohh.

Mac: I have the right to remain silent. Anything I say cannot ever be used against me in a court of law. You have the right to remain silent. You have the -- no, you have the right to remain -- I have the right to remain silent. I have the...

Jason: We gotta go. People are waiting to die.

Maxie: Spinelli, I really --

Lulu: I'm sorry. I gotta go. My private jet is waiting.

Maxie: Wait. Lulu -- ohh! Can't you just stay for a little bit longer? I mean, it's been so long since I've felt relevant. I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of stuff.

Lulu: Oh, dear, I know. You are. But we'll, um, have a nice chat when I get back. But, you know, if I don't leave immediately, I'm gonna be more than fashionably late to Karl's kickoff party, and we can't have that, now, can we?

Spinelli: Wait. The Jackal has made a life-altering decision.

Mac: Where's Jackal?

Spinelli: I've been struck by the proverbial bolt from the blue. It is clear to me, so eye-blindingly clear where my heart and priorities truly lie. First let me preface by stating without qualification that I wouldn't be the man that I am today without your faith and confidence in me. We have an unbreakable bond forged in -- heh. Well, stone. The Jackal is forever in his master's debt. You, through your teachings, banished my outer wimp and brought out my inner warrior, but I must follow my heart... and accompany the one and only original blonde one to Paris, where our destiny will finally be realized.

Lulu: You're choosing me?

Spinelli: Yes, fair Lulu of my heart. Once we stroll among the glittering glitterati, our love shining brighter than any of their jewels, our names will be joined forever in the paparazzi firmament, like those who came before us, Brangelina and Bennifer, and we will be Jackalu.

Lulu: Oh, Jackalu. I love it.

Maxie: Excuse me! You insensitive clod, what about me, your wife?

Spinelli: Your luminosity has long since faded. I'm no longer inspired.

Lulu: Oh. [Laughs]

Maxie: Lulu, no. You can't do this to me. You're my best friend!

Lulu: Oh, I'm sorry, Maxie. Maybe you shouldn't have married Spinelli after all.

Maxie: No! Wait! This can't be happening to me! This can't be happening to me!

[Knocking on wall]

Lulu: Yay! Rise and shine.

Robin: It's your wedding day.

Mac: Not only is this the worst day in my daughter's life and I have to be an active participant, but I have to get dressed up for it, complete with cuff links. Who invented these stupid things, anyway?

Patrick: Here. Let me give you a hand.

Mac: This is the worst day in Scorpio-Jones history, and that's saying something.

Patrick: That is saying something.

Mac: And it's gonna get worse, a lot worse.

Patrick: Well, just try and remember it's not about you.

Mac: Of course you'd say that. You know, you're no better for Robin than Spinelli is for Maxie.

Patrick: Heh. Thank you.

Mac: No, I take that back. At least you're a doctor.

Patrick: Neurosurgeon.

Mac: What is Spinelli? Tech support for the mob. Would you be as centered and calm if you were about to hand Emma over to a weirdo like that? Would you? Huh? I mean, as I was vacating my house this morning to make room for pre-wedding God knows what, I looked in on Maxie, and there she was on her bed, fully clothed. I mean, she didn't even make it into her pajamas, because that idiot kept her out till 2:00 in the morning the night before her wedding. My whole life flashed before my eyes -- age 2, 10, sweet 16. She's barely past that. She's way too young to be married, Patrick, especially to a dunderhead like Spinelli. Heh. You know what? If I get past this day, you can just throw me in Shadybrook, all right? Just lock me up with the rest of the loonies.

Molly: You weren't even gonna wear it.

Kristina: That's not the point, Molly. You can't just raid my jewelry case any time you feel like it without asking!

Sam: At least Molly's ready to go. Any chance you could catch up?

Kristina: I want my necklace back.

Molly: But it's perfect with my --

Kristina: It's mine!

Sam: Hey.

Kristina: Give it.

Sam: Hey. Krissy, come on. What's the big deal? You can borrow one of mine.

Kristina: I don't want one of yours.

Sam: Really? Heh. Why are you being so possessive all of the sudden?

Molly: It's 'cause Keifer gave it to her.

Kristina: Molly...

Sam: Hey.

Kristina: I sw...

Sam: Hey, listen. Today is not about you. Or you. This is Maxie and Spinelli's wedding. Please, as a favor to me, they are my friends. I don't wanna be late. Can you please get ready?

Kristina: What about my necklace?

Sam: Are you kidding me? Be the bigger person right now.

Kristina: [Scoffs]

Sam: Your sister is right. You should ask permission, okay?

Molly: But what's the big deal? Come on. Kristina wasn't even gonna wear it.

Sam: Well, it is a big deal. It has a sentimental value to her. Kiefer gave it to her. Come on. So, how serious are they, anyway?

Molly: M-mmm-mmm.

Sam: Do you like him?

Molly: Yeah. Kiefer's beyond awesome.

Sam: Awesome enough for your sister?

Molly: Definitely. I mean, Keifer has the potential to be a real Byronic hero.

Sam: Uh-huh.

Molly: Well, that's not exact. Kiefer is not an outcast, and he isn't hiding an unsavory past that we know of, but he is facing a major obstacle in Kristina's dad, since uncle Sonny is a scary crime boss and is capable of pretty much anything.

Sam: Right. Um, do you think that Krissy loves him like "loves"?

Molly: Well, probably. I mean, why wouldn't she? But not real forever love like Spinelli and Maxie. They're like Cyrano and Roxanne.

Sam: You -- okay, I'm gonna be honest. I don't -- I kinda don't know what you're talking about.

Molly: [Sighs] Okay. Look. It's like this. Gorgeous people pick each other, and the plain-but-genius are left to pine away from afar, but this time, the babe picked the geek, and now they get to live happily ever after. So this is a great day for nerds.

Lulu: This is gonna sound contradictory, but first you need to wake up, and then you need to calm down. This coffee might be counterproductive, but we're workin' with what we've got.

Robin: Yeah.

Maxie: How come you guys let me sleep in so long?

Robin: We thought you needed your beauty sleep.

Lulu: And you don't wanna walk down the aisle with bags under your eyes.

Maxie: Mmm. Good point. This could be my last chance to get glam.

Lulu: What do you mean?

Maxie: I saw it.

Lulu: What?

Maxie: My future in a dream. No, no. We'll just call it out for the nightmare that it was. You know what was waiting for me in my not-so-distant future? Granny panties and sandals... with socks.

Lulu: Seriously, are you sick?

Maxie: No. No, no, no. But give me a few years, when what I have waiting for me at home is squabbling kids and a monster for a husband. Happy wedding day.

Robin: She'll be fine.

Lulu: Perfect.

Spinelli: How shall I compare thee to a... Wretched, ill-favored thing? Who says that? Come on. Um... from today till the ending of the world... We few, we happy few, we... band of brothers. Guhh. [Sighs]

Jason: Hey, you okay?

Spinelli: No, most assuredly not. I inadvertently deleted my vows, and now my usually clear and supple mind is in a dense fog.

Jason: Maybe you're worried about more than your -- your wedding vows?

Spinelli: I fear Stone Cold is right. Deleting of my vows was an omen of doom.

Carly: Call me corny, but I love weddings, especially oddball ones.

Jax: Oh. Then I'm guessing you're in for a treat.

Carly: Ahh. So beautiful. Makes you wanna do it all over again.

Jax: Really? Say the word.

Carly: You would? You'd do it all over again?

Jax: Marry you? Thousand times.

Morgan: Are you guys gonna kiss?

Jax: Yes, we just might.

Morgan: Aw, yuck. Mmm.

Coleman: Welcome, peeps. Hey, Morgan, my man. I haven't forgotten your awesome shooting at the carnival. Whew. Where's your brother?

Morgan: Oh, he's driving over on his own.

Carly: Yes, in his own car. His mother is very worried about him.

Jax: It's lucky we have this beautiful wedding as a distraction.

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Jax: Shall we sit?

Coleman: All right, come on. I'll show you this nest of banana slugs I found out on the terrace.

Jax: I don't know if that's such a good idea.

Carly: No, no. It's okay. It'll keep him from getting bored. Morgan... do not sneak one of those things home with you. Please.

Morgan: I won't.

Carly: Okay.

Jax: Really? You want him hanging out with Coleman? You think he's a good influence for a kid that age?

Carly: He's fine. He's a little rough around the edges, but he's fun. Some of my best memories were hangin' out at Jake's.

Jax: You miss your single days, then?

Carly: No. No, I love my life. I wouldn't change anything about it.

Molly: On the other hand, you and Jason are more in the tragic, star-crossed lovers mode.

Sam: Whoa. Hold up. No way. Jason and I are just friends. Okay, maybe we're a teeny bit more than friends, just a little.

Molly: Do you wanna hear my advice or not?

Sam: Yes. I'd love to.

Molly: Okay. You need to be careful not to Romeo-and-Juliet. You know, don't do something irrevocable that leads to mutual doom.

Sam: Hey. Whoa. We are not doomed and -- or star-crossed, whatever that means, so you get that out of your head.

Molly: But you are lovers, right?

Sam: Mmm...

Molly: Don't worry. Your secret's safe with me.

[Knock on door]

Molly: Oh. Kiefer, hi. How's it going?

Kiefer: Hey. Hey, Sam.

Sam: Hey.

Kiefer: Ooh. You look beautiful.

Molly: Thanks.

Kiefer: I see, uh, K let you wear her necklace.

Kristina: I didn't let her wear it. Molly took it without asking.

Kiefer: Ah. Well, at least your little sister has good taste. Whoa. Heh. K, you look fantastic. I can't wait to show you off.

Kristina: I told you I can't go out with you. I'm doing a reading at a wedding today.

Robin: You're gonna make the most beautiful bride.

Maxie: You already won that title, and please don't cry, because I will, too, and I just finished my makeup.

Robin: Okay, but I can't make any promises.

Maxie: Do you think I should have tried to find my mom?

Robin: I don't know. What do you think?

Maxie: I considered it. I mean, every girl wants her mom around on her wedding day.

Robin: Is Felicia coming?

Maxie: No. I, uh -- I didn't bother. I figured the outcome wouldn't be good either way. I mean, my mom would come, and then resentment would just boil over like what happened at Georgie's memorial service and ruin what's supposed to be the happiest day of my life, or she wouldn't show, and resentment would boil over, ruining what's supposed to be the happiest day of my life. Besides, the last thing I need to think today is how people could promise to love you forever and then just turn around and walk away.

Spinelli: The Jackal ignored the ominous signs. My beloved granny cannot attend the nuptials due to a scheduling conflict with her annual bingo pilgrimage to the Kettlesboro, which I fear is just a transparent excuse to avoid the exchange of vows which she has no faith will be kept.

Jason: It doesn't matter what your grandmother thinks. This is between you and Maxie.

Spinelli: Part of Maxie fears that being married will herald the end of something, so I need to assure her that this is not the end, but the beginning of a lifelong journey, one that will be joyful and soulfully fulfilling, that our love and Maximista herself will grow. Grow. Uh, grow as a vine which, crawling one and every way, did strangle. My mind is mush.

Jason: Okay, you just need to say what's in your heart, Spinelli.

Spinelli: I feel my words will be inadequate.

Jason: How did you win Maxie over in the first place?

Spinelli: I don't know.

Jason: Okay. Well, I'm gonna tell you, because I watched the whole thing. You were yourself. You didn't speak other people's words, even though that would've been a lot easier for me to follow. You didn't pretend to be anybody else. You were you. That's who Maxie fell in love with. This isn't hard. All you gotta do is be honest.

Spinelli: One of Stone Cold's most compelling qualities is that he speaks the truth, however inconvenient or hurtful, so I call upon that attribute now. Do you -- do you think we're making the right choice? Or are Maximista and I making the biggest mistake of our lives?

Jason: Only you and Maxie can answer that. But just so you know, they don't come any better than you, Spinelli. Maxie's the lucky one here, and I hope she knows it.

Lulu: You don't think she went out the bathroom window, do you?

Robin: Honestly, I thought she'd be a lot more freaked out. She seems calm.

Lulu: No, she is in shock, and I think the freak-out's gonna come when she goes down the aisle.

Robin: I don't know. I think she might actually go through with it.

Lulu: Heh. Yeah. That's what Maxie wants everyone to think. I know this girl. I didn't want to, but our fates jammed us up, and, I mean, we're joined at the hip. We live together. We work together. Maxie doesn't take a breath that I don't know about, and I'm -- [Sighs] I'm worried about Spinelli. If Maxie doesn't go through with this wedding -- which there is a good chance that she won't -- Spinelli is just gonna shatter in front of everyone and God and -- I'm sorry. This is so inappropriate. I'm just -- I'm gloomy by nature.

Robin: No. No, you're not.

Lulu: Yes, I am. I always prepare for the worst.

Robin: Well, if the worst happens, at least someone is prepared. At least you'll know what to do. I think she should be back by now.

Both: Bathroom window.

Lulu: Hi.

Robin: Hey.

Lulu: Sorry. I'm just --

Maxie: All right. Think I'm ready to put my dress on now.

Lulu: Don't sound too enthusiastic. So...

Robin: Maxie, if -- if you're having second thoughts --

Maxie: Oh, don't even start. heh. Aren't you guys supposed to have presents for me or something?

Lulu: Uh...

Robin: Heh. Okay. Um, now that you mention it, something old and borrowed.

Maxie: Thank you. It's so beautiful. Look at all the teeny stitches.

Robin: My grandmother Filomena carried it on her wedding day.

Maxie: Thank you.

Lulu: And mine is not really part of the tradition, but it's perfect, 'cause you're the bride. It's old in that it's been owned before, but it's new to you.

Robin: Wow.

Lulu: It belonged to none other than Coco Chanel. And then it passed through the hands of our very own Kate Howard. And if you pay it forward, maybe someday some starry-eyed kid who wants to storm the fashion world can say it belonged to the fabulous Maxie Jones-Spinelli.

Maxie: Thank you. Not just for the purse, which I'm gonna keep forever, but for being my best friend.

Lulu: Wow. Let's not get carried away.

Maxie: Okay, if not today, then when are we supposed to do this?

Lulu: Heh. Well, you're my best friend, too. I mean, it's like -- I love you.

Maxie: Oh, whoa. We're getting carried away now.

Robin: Wow. Today's gonna be really anticlimactic. Something blue.

Lulu: Rreow.

Maxie: You know, I always thought traditions were really dumb, but I just realized why they exist, to keep us grounded during moments of our life where we might be too anxious and miss something wonderful. So thank you, guys, for keeping me grounded. And I can't believe this is really happening. I'm a bride.

Patrick: Well, can I get you something? Maybe a shot of whiskey? Antidepressant?

Mac: Why don't you just shoot me in the head?

Patrick: Could make a call.

Mac: Aw, you don't have to. You know, Jason the mob enforcer is best man at my daughter's wedding. I'm sure he'll be packin'. How did this happen, Patrick? How did that little bundle of joy who was Maxie end up a grown woman getting married to organized crime?

Patrick: I wouldn't necessarily call Spinelli organized crime, Mac.

Mac: No? What would you call him? Oh. Nice of you to make it.

Spinelli: Is my bride waiting for me?

Patrick: No, you're fine. Guests are still arriving.

Spinelli: Okay.

Patrick: Maxie's not here yet.

Spinelli: Well, give me a moment with my future father-in-law.

Mac: Oh, don't call me that.

Spinelli: It soon will be so.

Mac: I'm in denial.

Spinelli: Well, I just wanted to convey my gratitude to the proud patriarch for giving his reluctant consent to the upcoming nuptials, and I wanna assure you that at all times, I will act with Maximista's best interests at heart, even if it hurts.

Mac: If you really mean that, Spinelli, call off the wedding.

Patrick: I'm sorry.

Spinelli: I'm not offended.

Patrick: Well, you're a better man than me. I'll see you in there.

Jason: Hey. Just remember what I said. Speak from your heart. Everything's gonna be fine.

Morgan: Hey. Did you work out with my mom and Jax when you're moving in?

Dominic: Uh, yeah. You know, about that, it was really cool of you to offer me a place to stay.

Morgan: But you don't want to?

Dominic: I think your dad thinks it'd be a better idea if I crash at his place. That's the next-best thing, right? We can still hang out, go to a ballgame. I'll even teach you how to whip Sonny at stickball.

Morgan: Uh, I need to do that.

Dominic: All right, we'll count that one in the win column.

Morgan: Great. See you.

Dominic: All right.

Jax: Excuse me. Living with Sonny should make your job easier.

Dominic: Yeah. You know what? I'd rather not talk about that here or anywhere else, for that matter. You never know who's listening.

Jax: I'm on your side, remember? Sooner you rid this town of Sonny Corinthos, the better.

Dominic: Yeah, well, it might not be as easy a job as you think.

[Overlapping conversations]

Spinelli: When singers and poets rhapsodize about the joining of 2 souls in miraculous matrimony, they fail to mention the excruciating anxiety. Maximista and I should have just eloped.

Jason: Okay, you're gonna be fine. Take -- take a deep breath.

Spinelli: [Exhales]

Jason: Okay?

Molly: Oh, my God. It looks amazing. Are you totally feeing like a fangirl?

Spinelli: [Gulps] Precisely.

Molly: If I may, you look especially handsome.

Spinelli: Oh. Well...

Sam: Yes.

Spinelli: You're too kind.

Molly: Maxie's really lucky. See, I like the brainy ones, so you're good with me.

Spinelli: Well, I'm humbled and honored by your support, and I'm very much looking forward to your poetry presentations.

Sam: I think maybe you girls should take a seat. I'll be over in a minute.

Molly: Bye.

Sam: Well, are you holding up?

Spinelli: As well as can be expected, I suppose.

Jason: He's a wreck.

Sam: Oh, come on. He's a groom. He's supposed to be stressed. Congratulations.

Carly: So, surprised to see you up and around.

Johnny: Yeah. Well, Olivia's been taking good care of me.

Carly: Yeah, I bet she has.

Olivia: Oh, could we please -- could we please change the subject?

Carly: Don't be shy. I'm a big supporter. I think you guys are great together, and I love the whole "I don't care what anybody thinks" vibe.

Jax: Must seem familiar.

Carly: Yep.

Johnny: Well, it's nice to be approved of for once.

Olivia: Yeah, I don't think Johnny and I are making many top-10 lists in this town.

Johnny: Yeah.

Carly: That's because Port Charles is filled with a bunch of judgmental people who have no right to talk. I say rub it in their face.

Johnny: That works for me.

Lulu: What in the world are you doing here?

Dominic: Gorgeous.

Lulu: Thank you. But what are you doing here?

Dominic: I'm just, uh -- just getting some air.

Lulu: No, I mean at this wedding. You don't know Spinelli or Maxie, and you're still recovering from internal injuries.

Dominic: Yeah. You caught me. I heard you were gonna be the maid of honor, so I finessed an invitation just so I could dance with you.

Lulu: Heh.

Milo: Max sends his regrets and congratulations. He still can't believe a babe like Maxie would marry you.

Spinelli: Uh -- [Wincing]

Milo: Way to go, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Yeah. Uh, thanks.

Robin: Hello. Hello. Maxie's here.

Spinelli: Here? Now?

Robin: You were expecting her, remember?

Spinelli: Yeah, but if I lay eyes on Maximista's bridal loveliness before she's standing at the end of the aisle, it will be the final omen --

Robin: Oh, no. Spinelli, it's okay. She's in the limo. I'm here to make sure the coast is clear.

Jason: All right, it's time to do this.

Robin: [Squeals] I wish you all the happiness you can stand.

Jason: Spinelli.

Spinelli: I can't. There's a room full of people. I...

Jason: Okay, look at me. Now, remember how you told me about karaoke night. You thought you were gonna be so scared that you'd open your mouth and nothing would come out. Right? What'd you do? How'd you get through that? How'd you make it okay?

Spinelli: I focused on her.

Jason: Exactly. This is the same thing. I want you to look at Maxie and just speak the truth.

Spinelli: What if I see a truth in her eyes that I'd rather not know?

Jason: Okay. Okay, maybe you don't want surprise, and that's fine, because Maxie's right outside. Do you wanna talk to her just to be sure?

Spinelli: No. It's not necessary. [Deep breath] I'm ready to proceed... with my wedding. Heh.

Robin: Okay, we have to give Spinelli just a few more minutes. How's the bride doing?

Maxie: Thinking profound thoughts.

Robin: Yeah. Weddings do that to you, especially your own wedding.

Maxie: None of this is luck or coincidence.

Robin: What do you mean? You mean you and Spinelli?

Maxie: Georgie was crazy in love with Spinelli. I guarantee if she had lived, she would be the one meeting him at the top of that aisle.

Robin: Hmm.

Spinelli: You know, when Georgie died, it left such a huge hole in my heart. I thought that I would never be happy again. It's like she sent Spinelli to fill me up and take my hand and lead me away from that dark place that was eating me alive. He is the absolute best thing that's ever happened to me, and how ungrateful and arrogant would I be to reject something like that?

[Chamber music playing]

Mac: Maxie must be here. That means I have to give my little girl over to that incoherent mess. How am I supposed to do that?

Patrick: Mac, you're just -- you're gonna do it, okay? Whether you like it or not, Spinelli is the guy that Maxie chose to marry. Now, I know I'm new to the father-daughter stuff, but I already know that Emma's happiness is the most important thing in the world to me, and I know you think the same way. You're gonna take your reservations, you're gonna stuff 'em down deep where Maxie can't see 'em, and you're gonna support her on the biggest day of her life, just like you did with Robin.

Carly: What's taking Michael so long?

Jax: Relax. I just got a message. He's fine.

Morgan: Holy crap!

Carly: Morgan. Don't talk like that.

Morgan: Mom, Jason's wearing a pink tie.

Carly: Holy crap.

Sam: Wow.

Robin: Hey. So we're good to go?

Patrick: We'd better get moving before the groom passes out.

Robin: Ooh. You're right. He does look a little green. I'm gonna go get Maxie.

Patrick: Okay.

Robin: Okay. So we're all set.

Maxie: Yeah.

Robin: Maxie, I used to worry about you a lot. You're like a little sister to me. But now you've found your soul mate, and now I don't have to worry about you. I just have to be proud.

Maxie: Thank you.

Robin: I love you. Now go get married.

Lulu: I used to worry, too, about Spinelli, that you wouldn't see what a wonderful guy he was and that you would break his heart, but I've never been so happy to be proven wrong.

Maxie: Spinelli loves me more than anyone ever will. I know that.

Mac: It's not too late to change your mind.

Maxie: Only you would take that from what I just said. Mac, I love Spinelli, and I'm about to marry him.

Lulu: So, is that our cue?

Maxie: Yep. We'll be in there in one second.

Lulu: Okay.

Mac: Look at you, all grown up, about to be married. When did this happen? Where did the years go?

Maxie: I love you, Mac. Dad. Wow, if it wasn't for you, I don't know. Georgie and I, we would have been lost, especially me. Because no matter what happened, no matter all the chaos that was going on in my life, I knew I had a safe place to go -- wherever you were.

Mac: And now it's time to let you go.

Maxie: I know that you don't approve.

Mac: That doesn't matter. You love him. He makes you happy. That's all I could ask. Ready?

Maxie: Oh, I'm ready. heh.

Jason: Here we go.

[Bridal chorus playing]

Mac: I'm trusting you, Spinelli. You take care of her.

Spinelli: I will.

Fr. Coates: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to join Damien Spinelli and Maxie Jones in holy matrimony. We ask you, o Lord, to give them the wisdom and devotion that they each may be strength to the other, a counselor in troubled times, a comfort in sorrow, and a companion in joy. Grant that they may grow in love together all the days of their lives. Damien and Maxie have chosen to write their own vows. Let us all bear witness.

Spinelli: How I love you. I struggled today. I'd written vows -- no, I'd, um -- I'd carefully crafted vows to assuage your reservations, but as fate would have it, they were irretrievably lost, leaving me with nothing but the words in my heart, and that's what I'll depend on now. I'm not like other people. [Laughs] I never have been. But I became used to the outsider status, and I was really quite content. I mean, my mind is an active and fertile one. I'm never bored in my own company, and if being alone was to be my lot, well, there are worse things in this life to have to endure. But then there -- then there was you... luminous, transformative Maxie, and you saw me, you got me, and to my utter shock, amazement, and profound gratitude, you loved me, and that is the most precious gift, and I will never, ever betray it... and that is why I cannot marry you.
