Nicole: Taking advantage of happy hour, I see.
Jake: Hey, nicole. Wanna join me?
Nicole: No, I don’T. I’m meeting rafe here. Actually he’ll be here in a few minutes.
Jake: Very well. Give my best to your new boyfriend.
Nicole: Don’t give my best to your new roommate.
Gabi: Rafe, you are not going to be sorry that your lawyer got me a copy of that case file.
Rafe: Did you get a lead?
Gabi: Better, I managed to track down the guy–one of the guys–who lied about you on the stand, and I’m gonna get the truth out of him.
Rafe: Where are you?
Gabi: Outside his apartment.
Rafe: Now, you listen, I do not like this, okay? You are alone. This is not safe.
Gabi: Don’t worry, big brother, I’ll be careful.
Rafe: Yeah, you better be. Okay, you do not want ava finding out what you are up to. Like I said, she’s dangerous. She’s unpredictable. You never know when she might pop up.
Nancy: Goodbye, craig, and good luck. If everything I’ve heard about leo stark is true, you’re gonna need it.
Craig: Nancy, wait.
Craig: Would you consider staying and having one last drink with me for old time’s sake? Never mind, I–I shouldn’t have asked you. I don’t even know why you’d want to after everything that’s happened.
Nancy: What the hell?
Gwen: Oh, my god, matty… matty cakes! I mean, I–I can’t believe this. I haven’t seen you since philly.
Leo: Ah, gwenny mouse, i have thought about you constantly since we lost touch. I never imagined I’d run into you in salem.
Gwen: Yeah, I–I know. I moved here a few years ago. How long have you been here?
Leo: Not long, but I’m planning on sticking around this time, and I go by leo now, leo stark.
Gwen: Oh, well, mr. Stark, i think you and I have a bloody lot to catch up on.
Leo: Why don’t we grab a drink or ten, and I will tell you all about it?
Gwen: [Laughs] Okay.
Xander: So how’s boston treating you and the missus?
Jack: I can’t complain. Paper’s going great. Jennifer and I are very happy.
Xander: Good, good.
Jack: So to what do I owe this call?
Xander: Well, jack, I, uh, have some news. I’m finally ready to marry your daughter. So, once again, I find myself in need of a best mate.
Jack: Well, I’m–I’m very happy for you, for you and for gwen.
Jack: What about sarah?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Craig: Peach schnapps for my lady.
Nancy: You remembered?
Craig: Come on, nancy, how can I forget the first drink we shared? After I swiped the bottle from your parents’ house.
Nancy: You hooligan.
[Both chuckle] Craig, do you remember the car you borrowed?
[Gasps] Oh, my god.
Craig: That was a piece of junk. But it did get us down to that little lake. Built a fire under the stars.
Nancy: [Exhales] And we were gonna go skinny-dipping.
Craig: [Chuckles] Were, until we started drinking. And… I remember leaning in to kiss you.
Nancy: Our first kiss. I–I was surprised. Actually, I was in heaven.
Nancy: But then everything started spinning around, and–
Craig: Yeah, and then you vomited all over the place.
Nancy: Ah, real buzzkill, huh? Maybe it was just a sign of– of things to come.
Rafe: I gotta go.
Ava: Rafe. What an unpleasant surprise. Oh, did I hurt your feelings?
Rafe: I’d be careful if i were you.
Ava: Oh, see, now that was much better.
Rafe: Yeah. Accessory to a kidnapping, subordination of perjury, incrimination on false evidence.
Ava: Are those words supposed to mean something?
Rafe: Well, they should mean something to you, yeah, ’cause those are the crimes that you’re going down for.
Ava: [Chuckles] Yes, I think you tried that once before, and you failed miserably.
Rafe: I’m not done, not by a long shot. So enjoy your freedom… while it lasts.
Ava: Hey, you know what? Before you go, tell me this one thing: Um, how is my good friend nicole doing? No, actually, let me guess. Let me just guess this. Um, she is–she is acting just like she did with her hundreds of previous lovers and husbands and is treating you like you are damn special and the only man in this world who can possibly make her feel happy. Am I right?
Jake: Mm, you heard that ava and I are living together, huh?
Nicole: [Chuckles] It’s kinda hard to keep a secret in salem.
Jake: It’s not a secret.
Nicole: Well, last I heard, she was hiding out in a motel because she’s wanted by the police.
Jake: Not anymore.
Nicole: Right. What I’m trying to say is that if she can afford a motel, why is she crashing with you?
Jake: Because, nicole, i invited her to. If I’m being honest, money’s a little tight right now, with me being unemployed and ava–
Nicole: Being a fugitive?
[Scoffs] Okay, so what, in exchange for a place to sleep, she’s cooking lasagna and perhaps cracking the occasional kneecap?
Jake: No, no, no, nobody’s cracking anything.
Jake: In fact, ava realized the whole suzy homemaker thing is not really working out.
Nicole: Because she’s more of a lizzie borden type.
Jake: [Chuckles] Okay, how about we change the subject, huh?
Nicole: Okay, fine, agreed. But can I just give you a little friendly advice?
Jake: Go for it.
Nicole: Ava’s been my friend for a long time, and I know, i know she seems fun and chill and kinda the “grab a beer and eat a cannoli” type, but she’s dangerous, so just do yourself a favor and watch your back.
Jake: Mm, sounds a little more like a warning than advice.
Nicole: I suppose it is, considering she framed rafe for a crime he didn’t commit.
Gabi: Mr. Hutchins?
Hutchins: Who are you?
Gabi: I’m, uh, assistant da lola montez. May I come in? With depression, it’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-thismigraine medicine.
Gwen: My god, matty cakes, how long has it been?
Leo: It’s leo cakes.
Gwen: Leo cakes?
Gwen: [Laughs] Leo. Leo, you know, I quite like the sound of that. It’s really fierce yet regal.
Leo: Mm, thank you. I am the lion queen, my love.
Gwen: Mm. I’m trying to remember the last time we saw each other. Um, when was it? It was, uh–[Gasps]–Oh, my god, it was that club. Do you remember the–with the, um–the mirrored ceilings? Then there was that dj there with that insane tiara.
Leo: Yes, in the gayborhood! Ps, I own that tiara now.
Gwen: How on earth did you do that?
Leo: Honey, I do not kiss and tell.
Gwen: Oh, come on, yes, of course you do.
Leo: Okay, that’s true, but i wanna hear about you. Are you still dancing on tables?
Gwen: I have hung up my dancing shoes, I’m afraid.
Leo: Quelle dommage.
Gwen: Yeah, well, since i lost my dancing partner, kicking up my heels sort of just lost its appeal, you know?
Leo: We did define philly nightlife, didn’t we?
Gwen: God, didn’t we? I cannot count how many bars and clubs have us to thank for putting them on the map. We–you and I, we really had some wild nights, didn’t we?
Leo: Ah, well, we had the time. Your boyfriend, jake, was always working nights as a “mechanic.”
Gwen: Yeah, his job did require quite a few euphemisms, didn’t it?
Leo: Is that why you’re here? Are you in the program?
Gwen: Witness protection?
Gwen: No, no. And, um, jake and I, we’re–we’re not together anymore.
Leo: He’s not…
Gwen: No. He’s alive and well, and he’s actually living here in salem.
Leo: You’re kidding.
Gwen: Yeah. We’ve actually managed to peacefully co-exist here for a while now.
Leo: Any chance of a reconciliation?
Gwen: No, no, none whatsoever. I have zero interest. Plus, he’s with somebody else now, so…
Jake: If ava did frame rafe, why hasn’t she been arrested?
Nicole: ‘Cause there’s no proof.
Jake: Oh, what? So maybe, maybe she didn’t do it? I mean, she has–nicole, she has denied it, right?
Nicole: Oh, come on, please. Tell me you do not believe her.
Jake: I got no reason not to.
Nicole: Oh, gosh, jake. She’s–[Groans]
Jake: Okay, let’s just say for a second, hypothetically, that ava did set rafe up. Didn’t rafe go behind her back first and cheat on her with you?
Rafe: You leave nicole alone.
Ava: Oh, aren’t we protective? You got it backwards, commish. She slapped me.
Rafe: After you slapped her.
Ava: If you ask me, she definitely had it coming.
Rafe: You go near nicole, I’m gonna add assault to the long list of crimes you’re already going to be facing soon.
Ava: I’m not really worried about that.
Rafe: Yeah? Well, you should be. And this time, I don’t even need to use department time or resources to find you.
Ava: That’s interesting, ’cause I don’t recall sending you my forwarding address.
Rafe: Yeah, you didn’t need to. I know exactly where you live.
Xander: Unfortunately, sarah’s condition has gotten much worse.
Jack: Then she still thinks she’s renee dumonde?
Xander: No. [Sighs] No, she, uh–she knows she’s sarah horton… but now she thinks she’s a little girl. The antidote that rolf concocted caused her to regress back to her childhood.
Jack: I’m so sorry to hear that.
Xander: Maggie told me that sarah’s doctor saw no sign that she was getting better, but i thought it was only right that i see her for myself.
Jack: And how did that go?
Xander: She had absolutely no clue who I was. I tried to spark her memory, but it didn’t work. I think her doctors are right. There’s nothing more they can do for her.
Jack: So you’re moving on with gwen?
Xander: Ah, jack. Gwen has been just so incredibly patient with me. She gave me all the space and time that I needed to sort out my feelings about all of this, and all she asked in return was that I make her one promise: If the antidote didn’t work, that I’d marry her. So that’s what I’m gonna do. You still there, jack?
Jack: Yes, yes, I am. I just wonder…
Xander: Wonder what?
Jack: Xander, do you really think you’re marrying gwen for the right reasons? My asthma felt anything but normal.
Hutchins: You’re an assistant da?
Gabi: I work with melinda trask.
Hutchins: Then I got nothing to say to you.
Gabi: Please, you’re gonna wanna hear what I have to say. Please, mr. Hutchins.
Hutchins: Make it quick.
Gabi: Ava vitali is about to be arrested.
Hutchins: You don’t say.
Gabi: Yes, we believe that she orchestrated a plan to frame commissioner hernandez, a plan that you’re familiar with since you accused him of planting evidence, falsely accused.
Hutchins: I didn’t hear anything about ava vitali being arrested.
Gabi: Yeah, we’ve been keeping it quiet for obvious reasons, but we feel like we have a good case against her. We’d have a stronger one if you testified.
Hutchins: Not interested.
Gabi: Are you sure about that? Because if you did, my office could make the charges against you go away.
Ava: So gabi told you that i moved in with jake?
Rafe: She may have mentioned it.
Ava: Hmm. It’s eating her alive that I’m living with him, isn’t it?
Rafe: I wouldn’t go that far.
Ava: Really? Because when she stopped by his place last night and found me in his bed, she–her head practically exploded.
Rafe: Doubt that.
Ava: [Laughs] It was really pathetic. Yeah, she–she practically threw herself at him in front of me, and she’s begging him, pleading with him to take her back, and of course he said no, and then finally he had to kick her out.
Rafe: Well–well, I’m sure she’s over it by now.
Ava: Yeah, so much so that she went running straight to her big brother and let him know what’s going on. Yeah. Now that she knows that I’m living with her ex, I’m sure she can’t stop thinking about what we’re up to.
Rafe: She knows what you’re up to. Nothing.
Ava: Yeah, but things can change. You know that when we were all living under the same roof, I–i did find jake to be very, very intriguing.
Rafe: Now you’re just trying to make me jealous.
Ava: Oh, come on, what would be the point in that? You’re with nicole now, right? And I’m on my way home to jake. Oh, you might wanna give gabi a little heads-up that, uh, those changes that I was talking about–they may be coming a lot sooner than I thought.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Sure.
Nicole: Okay, you know what? Rafe did cheat on ava with me, but the last I checked, they don’t send people to jail for that.
Jake: Well, maybe ava thinks that they should.
Nicole: Well, since they weren’t going to, ava took matters into her own hands.
Jake: Innocent until proven guilty. Hey, you said, nicole, there’s no proof.
Nicole: Ava vitali is many things. Innocent is not one of them.
Jake: Hmm, and you’re the poster child for innocence, nicole? I mean, haven’t we already established that you went behind your good friend’s back and lied about it for months?
Nicole: All right, you wanna trust ava, fine, trust her. I’m just trying to give you a little advice.
Jake: Thank you, nicole, but I’m a big boy. I can look after myself.
Nicole: Jake, look, i understand you worked really hard to put your life of crime behind you. Don’t let ava suck you back in, because I guarantee you, if she goes down, she is taking you with her.
Craig: I know you’re hurting, nancy, but try to focus on the good memories, you know? We had some wonderful times together.
Nancy: I suppose we had a few.
Craig: A few? Come on. What about all the wonderful things we did in high school?
Nancy: Do you remember when we–when we entered the senior talent show?
Craig: [Laughs] You mean when you swore you could back me up on “send in the clowns”?
Nancy: I–I did.
Craig: Yeah, on a kazoo.
Nancy: Well, we took first place, didn’t we?
Craig: Yeah, yeah, we did. It was one of the best nights of my life. Look… our life together was real. Our love was real. The years we spent raising children together was real. Nancy, I know, I know that the future looks completely different from the way we ever imagined it, but those memories, those–those moments, they’re–they’re just as meaningful now as they ever were.
Nancy: Yeah, they are… except I wanted them to last forever. Okay, this is a freezer, not a time capsule.
Leo: It is too bad you and jake broke up. I’m just saying, the guy was very hot.
Gwen: What are you talking about? You never even met him.
Leo: I saw him a few times from afar.
Gwen: Well, it doesn’t even matter anyway, because jake and I–we’re ancient history. Plus, I have a new man now.
Leo: So do I. He’s crazy about me. So crazy, he left his wife.
Gwen: Oh, my goodness, what is it with you and straight men? Why are they always your cup of tea?
Leo: Can I help it if i appreciate a beautiful body, even if it happens to belong to someone who is hopelessly heterosexual? But my guy is different. He was closeted.
Gwen: [Laughs] How is that any better?
Leo: Well, because he’s out now, and he’s walking down the aisle with me.
Gwen: Stop it.
Leo: Tell all the boys I’ve loved before it is the end of an era. Mr. Right proposed. I said yes. I’m getting married.
Gwen: Oh, my god! That is so wonderful. Congratulations.
Leo: Wait, hold on just a second. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What is this?
Gwen: This right here? Is this what you’re talking about? I believe they call that an engagement ring.
Leo: I–does this mean…
Gwen: Yes, my boyfriend proposed, and we’re also getting married.
Leo: [Laughs gleefully]
Xander: What do you mean, am I marrying gwen for the right reasons?
Jack: I hear the sadness in your voice.
Xander: Of course I’m sad, jack. I just watched a remarkable woman, a woman I–a woman who meant a great deal to me, turn into a child before my eyes.
Jack: Look, I–I don’t mean to be insensitive. I just–I–I wanna understand this promise you made to gwen.
Xander: I don’t know how i can say it any more clearly. I promised gwen that if the antidote didn’t work, that I’d marry her, and that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.
Jack: Because you’re madly in love with her and she’s the only woman you can imagine spending your life with? Or because you feel obligated?
I’m sorry. I–I–I’m not trying to cause you any more pain, but gwen has suffered a great deal in her life as well.
Xander: Jack, look, I know that you’re just trying to protect your daughter, but believe me, gwen is–gwen is not some consolation prize in all of this, and I didn’t make that promise just to hedge my bets. It was an attempt to honor what sarah and I had, while still, at the same time, trying to be fair to gwen. So, to answer your question, jack, yes, I’m marrying gwen for all the right reasons, and I’m gonna dedicate the rest of my life to making her as happy as she makes me.
Hutchins: How can you make the charges against me go away?
Gabi: Well, the thing is that, uh, rafe hernandez being released didn’t reflect very well on my boss. She still has egg on her face from the debacle with judge smails.
Gabi: You know what? Never mind. The point is that there is nothing melinda trask hates more than looking like a fool. Now she’s on a warpath to take down any and every criminal she can.
Hutchins: Maybe that’s why they moved up my court date. I got something in the mail soon after hernandez was found not guilty of planting evidence against me.
Gabi: That’s not coincidence. That’s trask going scorched earth.
Hutchins: If that’s her mo, why would she drop the charges against me?
Gabi: She’s only after all you little fish because she couldn’t land the big one. But you could change that.
Hutchins: [Scoffs] By giving her ava vitali?
Gabi: Trask has no doubt that ava was behind the plan to take the commissioner down. If you got on the stand, you back that up, I’m sure she could find a way to make your case go bye-bye. The lows of bipolar depression
Gabi: So will you testify? If you’re worried about retaliation, we can protect you.
Hutchins: You mean that?
Hutchins: [Sighs] I’m sorry, ms. Montez, i can’T…
[Sighs] But… I can give you this.
Gabi: What’s this?
Hutchins: Let’s just call it a little insurance policy I took out.
[Jazz music playing]
Nicole: Oh, hi.
Rafe: Hi. Sorry I’m late. Been here long?
Nicole: No, not too long. You were worth the wait. I got you a beer.
Rafe: Thank you. Cheers. Ah, needed this.
Nicole: Tough day?
Rafe: It was fine, until I ran into ava.
Ava: You, um–you wanna share the rest of the lo mein with me? There’s also kung pao left over in the fridge.
Jake: Nah, no, I’m good. I just had a big plate of wings at that little bar downtown.
Jake: Ran into nicole there.
Ava: Ah. My condolences.
Jake: Eh. She knows we’re living together.
Ava: So how many seconds till she started trashing me?
Jake: Well, she gave me a warning.
Ava: Well, what does she think I’m going to do, huh?
Jake: Well, she told me that you were gonna pull me into my old life, and that when you get taken down, you’re gonna take me down with you, and she would not let up on the notion that you set rafe up.
Ava: Hmm. And, uh, what did you say?
Jake: I told her you didn’t do anything to rafe, and she needs to curb her judgment, because she’s no saint herself.
Ava: Well, that is very chivalrous of you.
Jake: Well, I’m not a fan of hypocrites, especially when they play all high and mighty.
Ava: Okay, well, it does seem like nicole is thinking I’m a bit of a threat, so you sure you want me to still stay with you here?
Jake: Yeah. Like I told nicole, I’m a big boy. I can watch out for myself.
Nancy: You’re really going through with this, craig? You’re actually going to marry leo?
Craig: Yes, as soon as the papers are filed. Probably next week. Look, nancy, I know it’s sudden, and I know you and chloe and the whole town are skeptical of leo, but people change.
Nancy: And you really do love him?
Craig: Yeah, um, we love each other.
Nancy: Well, if that’s true, then, craig, I’m happy for you.
Craig: You–you mean that? You–you really mean that?
Nancy: I’m trying.
Craig: [Laughs] Nancy… maybe–ah, maybe you’ll consider…
Nancy: Consider what?
Craig: Maybe you’ll consider coming to our wedding. Like pulsing, electric shocks,
Nancy: Come to your wedding?
Craig: Nancy… you have been with me at all the most important moments of my life. This moment, this–this step I’m taking–I don’t wanna take it without you.
Nancy: I–I don’t know, craig.
Craig: Well, will you at least think about it?
Nancy: I’ll think about it.
Leo: You’re getting married too? When?
Gwen: Next week.
Leo: So am I. I haven’t planned a thing.
Gwen: Neither have we. My god, I mean, things, um– things–things got a bit complicated, actually, and, um, well, we were in a bit of a holding pattern for a while. But now it’s full steam ahead.
Leo: This is like nuptial kismet. I haven’t seen you in forever, run into you in snoresville of all places, and we’re getting married at the same time.
Gwen: [Exhales] I know, it’s incredible.
Leo: You are my cosmic, karmic, bridal twin…
Gwen: Except what?
Leo: Well, you said things got complicated. Are you, uh–are you with child?
Gwen: Pregnant? No.
Gwen: Um, I mean, uh–um, I was. I was, but, um, it was a long time ago, and, uh, it didn’t work out.
Leo: Oh, gwenny mouse, I’m so sorry.
Gwen: It’s okay. It was a whole big mess, actually, and, um, well, it wasn’t with the right person. But I am with the right person now, and I cannot wait to make him my lawfully wedded husband.
Leo: Amen to that. So what are you thinking about for a dress? Sleek and sexy? Poofy and fabulous? What?
Gwen: [Chuckles] No, I can’t afford a dress. Everything’s so bloody expensive.
Leo: The only thing more expensive than a wedding is a divorce. Not that you have to worry about that.
Gwen: God, especially since we’re so broke already. I keep telling myself that I’m– I’m fine with a small ceremony. I mean, we’re getting married. That’s all that matters, right?
Leo: That’s right.
Gwen: Oh, god, who am i kidding?
Gwen: I want a big, beautiful wedding. I–I want–I want flowers everywhere, and I want beautiful music, and I want fabulous food.
Leo: Fabulous champagne.
Gwen: Ugh, yes. God, I can see it in my mind, this glorious, magical celebration.
Leo: Hmm, I’m right there with you. I want as much pomp as possible with my circumstance.
Gwen: You know, it’s funny, though, because I–I don’t know where it came from. I didn’t really grow up watching princess movies as a ward of the state.
Leo: Same. It’s not like after my dad was done knocking my mom and me around, we sat down in front of the telly and watched “cinderella.”
Gwen: But you did find your prince.
Leo: [Exhales] I did. He’s a doctor. He’s brilliant, handsome, loaded.
Gwen: Oh, my. Well, it sounds like your wedding will be an impeccably catered five-star affair, and mine will be some picnic by a river somewhere.
Leo: [Laughs] Picnics can be posh.
Gwen: Mm-hmm, yeah, sure. Oh, you just better invite me to your big day, so that I can live vicariously through you.
Leo: I might have a better idea.
Xander: Jack, are you still there, mate?
Jack: I’m here, I’m here. I appreciate everything that you said about my daughter, and I do believe that you wanna make her happy.
Xander: Well, I’m glad. So think you can make it to salem for the wedding? Stand up for me?
Jack: Of course I’m gonna be there. How could I not? It’s my daughter’s wedding…
Jack: And my best mate’S.
Gabi: Thank you, mr. Hutchins. My office will be in touch.
Hutchins: Make sure it is, ’cause I don’t even wanna think about what would happen if ava found out that I gave that to you.
Ava: Once you say rafe hernandez planted this evidence on you, there is no way he can come back from this. He’s going down.
Hutchins: Isn’t it my word against his?
Ava: That’s the beauty of it. I got two other guys lined up. None of you know each other. No one will ever know that I put the three of you up to this.
Gabi: No one except me.
Nicole: You ran into ava?
Rafe: Outside the pub.
Nicole: How did it go?
Rafe: About as unpleasant as you’d imagine.
Nicole: I’m sorry.
Rafe: Yeah, you know, but the good news is, we might not have to worry about running into her much longer.
Nicole: What do you mean?
Rafe: Gabi is trying to find evidence that proves ava set me up, and she’s working on a lead right now.
Nicole: Gabi is?
Rafe: Hey, don’t worry. She’s not breaking any rules, and she’s being careful.
Nicole: Okay. Well, I hope she’s successful.
Rafe: Yeah, me too. I’ve also been thinking that even when you’re careful with ava, she finds a way to surprise you, and I don’t mean in a good way.
Nicole: I said the same thing to jake. He was here earlier.
Rafe: Oh, yeah? Talk to you about his new roommate?
Nicole: Yeah, I warned him not to get sucked in, because if ava goes down, she will take him with her.
Ava: So I guess the wings didn’t really do the trick?
Jake: No, they did. I can just never say no to kung pao.
Ava: Eh, I mean, who really can? Hope you don’t mind I took the liberty of inflating the mattress.
Jake: Yeah, I saw. I didn’t know I had extra pillows.
Ava: You didn’T.
Jake: So, what, the bedtime fairy stop by? They do turndown service in the garage now?
Ava: Yeah, well, I may have stopped by the store, picked up some extra pillows and a new set of sheets.
Jake: We already have sheets.
Ava: 800 thread count? Because that is as low as I go.
Ava: Yeah. Look, I–I can’t keep asking you to give up your bed, especially with your bad back, so, since you made the splurge on the mattress, I’m sure it’s really comfortable.
Jake: I–I know it is, which is why I’m taking it.
Ava: Jake, you don’t have to.
Jake: I want to. I’m chivalrous, remember?
Ava: All right, be chivalrous and pass me that lo mein.
Jake: You got it.
Xander: Ah, I was just talking to jack. He’s very excited about our big day. Booking flights as we speak.
Gwen: Really? Oh, that’s wonderful. I–I–I wasn’t sure he’d be able to make it on such short notice.
Xander: He said he wouldn’t miss it. It’s his daughter’s wedding. So did you order the cake?
Gwen: I did. It was a tad expensive.
Xander: Well, tuxes aren’t cheap either. I’m starting to wonder how far we’ll get just on my maxed-out credit cards and winning smile.
Gwen: Actually, my darling, I have a proposition for you.
Leo: Mm! How did it go?
Craig: It went as good as could be expected, I guess.
Leo: So nancy signed the papers?
Craig: Yeah, she signed. Justin’s gonna file the papers in the morning, and then we can make plans to move forward with the wedding.
Leo: Oh, I cannot wait. About those plans…
Leo: I have a proposition for you.
Xander: A double wedding? With who?
Leo: My friend, gwen. We go back years. She and her fiancé can’t afford a nice wedding, so I kind of suggested that we share ours.
Gwen: My friend and his fiancé have plenty of money, and he told me that they’d be more than happy to include us in their wedding.
Xander: That is awfully generous of him.
Craig: That was awfully generous of you.
Leo: I know, I should have talked to you about it first, but she’s such a dear friend, and the thought of her having her reception on some sad picnic tables? What do you think?
Craig: What do I think?
[Inhales slowly, exhales] I think this is one of the many things I love about you, leo. You have such a kind and giving heart.
Gwen: So what do you think?
Xander: I think that we should slow our roll. Like, I don’t even know this friend of yours. Who–who is it again?
Gwen: His name is matty, and you’re absolutely going to love him. If you want to stay out of jail, you need to go good.
