gregory: [Weakly] We are… g-gathered here today to…

[ Clears throat ] …Witness and… uh, celebrate, uh… the…marriage of — of these… two… beautiful young people.

[ Clears throat ]

[ Groans ] Brook — brook lynn and ch-a-ase… are you… …r-ready to enter — enter into the… the holy state of… matr– matrimony?

[ Gregory inhales deeply and groans ]

[ Groans ] Dad?

[ Groans ]

[ Exhales shakily ] Are you okay? Just give him a minute.

[ Gregory groaning ]

[ Gregory groaning ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Can you breathe?

[ Grunts ] Y-yeah. Good. It’s okay. Take all the time you need. Everybody understands. It’s okay.

[ Gregory groans ]

[ Gregory exhales sharply ] Don’t worry about the order. Breathe.

[ Gregory groans ] I can finish this like I promised you. Or we can just wait. Nobody minds. Thank you. As I was saying…

[ Light laughter ] Brook lynn and chase… are you ready to enter into the holy state of matrimony, which is an honorable estate and not one to be entered into lightly but humbly and reverently? Are you willing to take your vows in the presence of this company and in the sight of god?

Brook lynn and chase, please take hands. Harrison, do you take brook lynn to be your lawful wedded wife? Do you promise to love and comfort her, to honor and keep her in sickness and in health… in prosperity and adversity… and, forsaking all others, to be faithful to her for as long as you both shall live? I do. Brook lynn… do you take harrison to be your lawful wedded husband? Do you promise to love and comfort him… to honor and keep him in sickness and in health… in prosperity and adversity… and, forsaking all others, to be faithful to him for as long as you both shall live? I do. Shakespeare wrote… “true love cannot be found where it truly does not exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does.” Harrison and brook lynn, your love cannot be hidden. It illuminates you both. May the light of love you see in each other’s eyes today be with you for all the years to come.

Harrison, repeat after me. Actually, dad, I have this memorized and I’m kind of proud of it, so…

[ Laughter ] Okay. I, harrison chase, take you, brook lynn quartermaine, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health… to love and to cherish till death do us part.

[ Exhales sharply ] Brook lynn? I, brook lynn quartermaine, take you, harrison chase, to be my wedded husband… to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health… to love and to cherish until death do us part. Best man, do you have the rings? Yeah.

[ Laughter ] These rings that you present each other are emblems of the union which you this day, declare, and they will henceforth affirm. May they remind you and all others of the bond between you and of the act of faith in which you now partake. Harrison… place this ring on brook lynn’s finger and repeat after me. “With this ring, I thee wed.” Chase: With this ring… I thee wed. You know, some people, they — they just know the first time they lay eyes on each other. It’s like they’re struck by lightning.

[ Chuckles ] That was not us.

[ Laughter ] No, the first time I saw you, I was struck by a bottle that you swung at my head! That bottle is still in evidence lockup. Now it… it’s just evidence of my love for you. You’re a force of nature, brook lynn. You are a tsunami, a tornado, and earthquake all in one — unstoppable, invincible, impossibly beautiful woman. And that love and faith that you have in me… makes me feel invincible, too. And I promise I will bring the strength and love that you inspire in me every single day to our marriage… …to our children. Just as my dad always did for me. I don’t know if anyone’s ever been so lucky to get hit in the head with a bottle. But here I am! At your side. Forever. Gregory: [ Clears throat ] I’m okay. Just…very, very grateful.

Brook lynn… place this ring on harrison’s finger and repeat after me. “With this ring, I thee wed.” With this ring… I thee wed. When I was a little girl, I used to wonder, “what kind of man will I marry?” Being surrounded by so many strong women, they always taught me never to settle, to hold out for the best possible man like they did. So I made myself a list. My groom-to-be had to be… handsome… and strong… and smart. And he had to love music. And he had to love me. Check, check, check, check, and check.

[ Laughter ] But there was one thing I forgot to put on that list. This is a biggie. The husband of my dreams also had to be good. He had to be kind… and patient… and fair… and just…good. And you, chase, are a good man. You literally make the world a better place every single time you leave the house, and you make my world a better place every single time you come home. You keep people safe… and right wrongs… and you do your best to prevent people from making bad decisions, no matter how stubborn they may be. Not gonna mention any names, but it’s me.

[ Laughter ] And even when those baddecisions sometimes happen, you show up with patience… and forgiveness… and always, always love. So I am so grateful I hit you over the head with that bottle!

[ Laughter ] And it was an accident! I don’t know how many times I have to tell you that! So I just hope that, when I need it, you’ll give me your forgiveness. And I promise I will always give you mine. But the promise I make to you today, to love and to cherish you always… it’s the easiest promise I ever made. Even easier to keep. By the power vested in me by the state of new york… I now pronounce you husband and wife. Son, you may kiss your bride.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cheers and applause ] Congratulations, pal. Thank you so much. Thank you for the best wedding ever. Oh. Thank you, son. For being patient when I got a little stuck. Everybody loves a comeback. I’m just glad nobody left. On the bright side, I — well, my bucket list is now complete. About that, I have one more thing to add to your list. Holding our first child. There you go. There you go. Take one of those with you. I’m not hungry right now.

[ Laughter ] Honey, those aren’t for eating. Then what are they for? You just follow me, and I will show you just what to do. You know, you are the one that served the love potion at the picnic, so, technically, this whole thing is kind of your fault. So I’m the bringer of happiness. You’re damn straight you are. You guys, I’ll see you there, okay? -Olivia? -Yeah, honey. Can you take me to the reception? Well, but you’re gonna — you’re gonna miss out on throwing the bird seed, honey. That’s okay. I need to get ready for my big surprise. Ohh. Okay. Well, then, let’s go. See ya.

[ Laughs ] What? Oh, your mom. Your — your whole family. Oh, yeah. Yeah. They’re something else, aren’t they? Damn straight. Uh-huh. Hey, well, lucky you.

[ Patting ] We’re part of your family now, too.

[ Laughs ] Yeah… dex: Yeah, she looked great…

[ Indistinct conversations ] Dad, everything okay? Yeah. Lot of familiar faces. People I haven’t seen in years. They’re still always your people.

[ Chuckles ] Nothing changes that, right? Mnh-mnh. Well, your people are my people, so you’ll have to introduce me at the reception. Oh, I will. That was such a beautiful wedding. I thought I saw you get all teared up with the bride and groom. I guess I’m one of those people who cries at weddings. Maybe you should think about that. Nice job, kiddo.

[ Sobbing loudly ] -You gotta stop crying! -You first! So, the ceremony. Any notes? Ask maxie. Oh, I was just saying the natural light could have been a touch brighter. Doesn’t the natural light come from the sun? Exactly, spinelli. The sun had one job.

[ Brook lynn chuckles ] Well, did the natural light work for you? I don’t know. All I could see was you. Aww. I wish we could do it all over again. Too bad. Because this wedding was your first, your last, and your only… though I would be open to renewing our vowels every 30 years or so. Yeah, well, I was thinking every 10 to 15. Well, I can’t wait to argue about it. How do you feel about sitting down? I found a quiet little room off the altar. Oh, the sacristy.

[ Chuckles ] Is that what it’s called? Everything’s called something. Thank you. I could use a quiet moment. Alright, then. Follow me. You know, I appreciate you, tracy. You’re always thinking ahead, anticipating what I might need, but always letting me make the choice. You know me. I don’t like to be pushy.

[ Chuckles ] You have great finesse… and grace, which everyone here saw today when my body was refusing to make words. Well, I believe that every wedding should have some suspense.

[ Chuckles ] Um, forgive me if this is… uh, too much. I’m on the edge of my seat. I sometimes wonder what life would be like if I had met you when I was 25 or 30. I…have had the same…question. A couple of times. And? What answer did you come up with? That life would have definitely been very different. Today… would have been very different. And since today our two families were joined in such a beautiful, joyous way… …why would anyone want to change that? Why, indeed.

[ Cheers and applause ] Lois: Aww!

Oh, my god. That wedding was so beautiful. Wow. This is a fun party. Who knew lois would be the subdued one?

[ Laughs ] Ah. After you. Grazie. Thank you. To the happy couple. Cheers. Mm. At what point… do you think it’s okay to slide out of a wedding reception without it being rude? Oh, come on. Don’t tell me you’re bored already. Oh, no, no, I’m not bored. It’s just that at weddings I tend to look around and I see missed chances. Thank you. You know, watching brook lynn and chase today made me realize… you know, when you say those vows, you really think you know what you’re in for. Truth is… none of us have a clue. I’m just glad that we’re in it together. I am gonna pretend like I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ll be right back. Didn’t expect to see you here. Yeah. Monica asked me to come. Yeah. I meant, I didn’t expect to see you at all. But I guess ne ither of us havemade an effort to see each other since your return. Should we? I think the fact that you’re asking that question pretty much answers itself. Okay. Okay. Okay. Pictures, pictures! Okay, a little separation of the black suits there. You step right to the side, to the side, to the side, side, to — okay, you’re good. Um, you move there, and I’m here. We’re ready. Everybody say, “formaggio.” All: Formaggio!

Easy feeling

like it’s meant to be

nothing in my life so appealing

ever seemed so right for me girls, girls! We need to even it out. Come on, over here, over here. Okay, flowers out, flowers out. The pretty. Smile. Okay.

Will last ’cause

all that you are is better by far

than all I hoped you’d ever be

a million dreams whisper to me

from inside your name

next to you I found my way

to someday touching up or hiding out? A little bit of both.

[ Chuckles ] And what about you? I notice that you’re here with drew. Oh, well, drew’s here. I’m here. And that’s all there is to that. Mm-hmm. Seems like you and drew had a little bit of a vibe going on. Well, we are both single people at a wedding. We tend to travel in packs for our own survival. Ah. Been there.

[ Laughs ] I’m not exactly sure

why I was invited. Well, you were chase’s boss for a really long time. Not anymore. But that is the kind of guy chase is. Come to think of it, it could have been ned’s idea, too. Ned? Why ned? Yeah. Yeah, ever since I became deputy mayor, he’s become a lot more friendly. Oh, so this is a schmooze invite.

[ Chuckles ] At this point, anything’s possible. Yeah, curtis thinks we were invited because brook lynn has booked clients at his club. Including chase. So I guess we were both schmooze invitees. Exactly. Anything is possible. Mm-hmm.

[ Chuckles ] Ah. Oh. Excuse me. Everything okay? Everything’s fine. Yeah. We were actually just trying to figure out which family invited us. Oh! And since one of those families is your family… we thought maybe you could shed a little light on the mystery. Well, that would either be a lois question or a tracy question. Mm. Yeah, we’re gonna ask lois. We’ll ask lois. Yeah. 100%. My two cents — any social event is only improved by the gorgeousness. Aw.

[ Laughs ] Woman’s got a point. That does explain it.

[ Chuckles ] Shall we? Yes. Oh, it is so pretty. So, um, [Laughs] Thank you for a really wonderful afternoon. You’re not leaving, are you? Well, alison and i are staying here in the hotel, actually, I mean, just for the time being, but, um, I figured you’d want to catch up with friends and family. Stay. You know why? I don’t know if you know, but one of, uh, those old friends owns a hotel, and she throws great parties.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I will then. Um, excuse me, mr. Corinthos. Ah, come in! What, you’re two grown up to call me uncle sonny? Uncle sonny. Yeah, look at you, gio. Fix your tie there. Natalia, this is giovanni palmieri. We call him gio. Gio, nice to meet you.

[ Chuckles ] That was beautiful today. I really admire your musicianship. Well, thank you. How long have you been playing? Oh, as long as I can remember. Uh, my mother was a violinist and… she was much better than I am. He’s just being modest. He studied with the best teachers in new york. Thanks to uncle sonny. He paid for my lessons and my first two years at college. Really? Very generous.Let me tell you something. He deserves a shot. I’m gonna tell you why. He will be a concert violinist. Ain’t that right, gio? Thanks to you, uncle sonny. Get over here. Aw.

Sam? Wow, you two. Hi. Enjoy the wedding? Oh, it was so beautiful. Yes. And chase’s dad. I know, so brave. He did such a nice job, right?

[ Cellphone chimes ] Yeah. Yeah. It was amazing. Uh-oh. Dante’s cousin patty is causing trouble again. Well, sam to the rescue. Yeah, so we’ll, uh, talk over cake. Yeah, for sure. Bye. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a little over-chaperoned. Your mom was nice today.

[ Chuckles ] She made eye contact. She smiled, even. In a warm and welcoming way? You know, more of a “keep your hands off my daughter” way, but, hey, I’ll take it. It’s funny, my mom’s been known to do the same thing. She’s objected to your girlfriends? One in particular. But I can’t say she was entirely wrong. And if you ever tell anyone that… okay, who would even believe me? Good.

[ Chuckles ] Where’s your mom anyway? Albany. The law license thing. Yes. God, I hope she gets it back. You really like your mom, don’t you? Uh, I love my mom. Mm. Like? Kind of depends on the day, you know? I hear that. Yeah. There’s one thing our moms have in common that’s so important — they’re crazy about us. Just not so crazy about our choices. Of course, she just wants the best for you. My job is to convince your mother that what’s best for you is me. Actually, you don’t need to convince her about anything, because you’ve already convinced me. Some– sometimes my lens gets caught under my eyelid, and I can’t get it out. I’m half blind. Ma, ma, just lean your head back. I’m gonna try and fish it out. Come on. Are you crazy? You’ll skewer my eyeball with those nails of yours. You know, let me get you a tissue. You know what? I have an idea. Like, just look down — can you look down at your shoes for a second?

That same pretty girl gave me a smile I can see! Ah! I can see! Aw, see? I’m going back to the dance floor.

[ Laughter ] Anna: I think they look very nice. Lovely. They’re really so nice. Me, too. Thank you. So… okay, let’s go dance. Okay. Ah. Thanks. Hey, uh, what can I get you? Not a thing. Why don’t you sit here with me? I’d love to.

[ Sighs ] You were a rock star today. That’s nice of you to say. Dad, you were. Everybody’s been talking about how perfect the wedding was. I hope you’ll allow yourself a little pat on the back. If you insist, but if anyone was a rock star today, it was tracy. She bravely stood between me and disaster. Yeah, tracy was something else. You two make a good team. I’m just glad the ceremony came off. Performing that ceremony in front of all these people — skydiving’s got nothing on that. Oh, gregory. Thank you so much for such a lovely service. It was my pleasure. Hey, this is my pops, carmine cerullo. Pops, this is the father of the groom, professor gregory chase. Yeah, we met at — yeah, when we were taking pictures. Yeah. Oh! And, of course, you know that familiar mug. Right? Come on. You remember sonny. Sonny.

[ Chuckles ] This one — this one was at my house so much when he was a kid that after you’d go home, my gloria, she’d take a headcount at bedtime, just to make sure none of ours are out there getting into trouble. She’d say, “pop, we’re short one. Sonny’s not here.”

[ Laughter ] Come here. -Thank you. -Thank you. Uh, yes, sales are up. And I have a feeling it has to do with our new face of deception. That’s so good to hear. Well, I look forward to having our accountant verify your tally, and that way my daughter can get her cut, as per her contract. You don’t get invited to a lot of parties, do you? Well, this is a surprise. Yeah, people keep saying that. Monica asked me to come. So here you are. Yeah. So, tell me if this is a bad idea. Oh, boy. Do you think jake would like to go out on the lake with me? You mean, like, fishing or something? Uh, that, or, you know, if he thinks that’s too boring, maybe we’d get a speed boat or something. Excuse me. Are you jason quartermaine? Mrs. Cerullo. Ah! It’s been a long time. But did you ever become a doctor? No. Oh. You know what? I don’t blame you. I can’t stand the sight of blood, either. Oh. Oh! Look who’s here — our honorary son, sonny!

[ Both chuckle ] Hey, maxie. Question. Spinelli. Response. Was there a — a bride at the wedding? Was there a what? Because all I could see… was you.

[ Laughs ] I can’t think of a better place than at my best friend’s wedding to tell you that I love you.

[ Cheers and applause ] Kisses! Kisses!

[ Cheers and applause ]

Gregory, thank you so much. The ceremony could not have been more perfect. I think it could have used fewer pauses, myself. Hey, you were there. You did it. And I will thank you for this day every day of my life.

[ Glass tapping ] Can I have everyone’s attention, please?

[ Tapping continues ] Everyone’s attention, please.

[ Tapping continues ] Yo! I’m trying to talk here!

[ Laughter ] Thank you. Now that we have the guests of honor, I would like to present them with a tray of the cocktail of the day. This gorgeous concoction is known as — wait for it — the brook lynn chaser.

[ Laughter ] You get it? Please explain the subtleties to us. You know what? We’ll take two right here. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. This delicious beverage was such a hit at the bridal shower, I decided it deserved a revival, but the happy couple gets first dibs. Oh, my god, no, no, no, no, no. I’m terrified of spilling anything on my dress. What for? It’s not like you’re gonna wear it again. Yeah! Well, in that case, I’ll take two! I want to toast my groom. I’d prefer to be called your husband. Mm. Oh. Hey, hello again. Ah. Hey. Hello, mr. Cerullo. We didn’t get a chance to talk before when they were taking the pictures. Yeah, we were all kinds of busy. We were. But, um, we’re not now. Are you? Uh, no, no, I guess not. So I understand my granddaughter’s new, uh, new brother-in-law is a — is a doctor. A doctor, yes, yes. Yes, I am. I gotta show you something. I got the… worst rash on my leg over here. Is there any kind of a, uh, lotion or a cream that I should be using? I mean, my wife has got, like, a dozen or so at home, but nothing seems to work here. Spinelli. Hi. Oh, hey, samantha. Are you enjoying the festivities? I am, indeed. Actually, I like watching dante being swarmed by his relatives.

[ Chuckles ] And you? Yourself? Ah, yes, I am having the best time I’ve had in years. Okay. Well, um, I’m not gonna keep you long. I just wanted to know if the jackal would be available to work with me on a new case? Uh, could you give me a tiny hint as to who we’d be investigating? The fbi. Friend of mine, she happens to be the best dermatologist in the city. Since you’re gonna be in town for a few days, you give her a call, you tell her I sent you. Thanks again, doc. It’s tough to sleep with your leg on fire from 2:00 A.M. On. Can really spoil your day. Yeah. So, to express my gratitude, have a drink on me. Oh. Cheers. Yeah. Uh, excuse me, everyone. Can I have your attention? Please? Excuse me. That’s my daughter. Ooh, she’s an angel, hmm? We have a little surprise for the newlyweds. Violet promised the bride and groom that she would sing a song at their wedding. But what she didn’t tell you is that she would write the song herself. So brook lynn, chase, this is for you.

[ Strums guitar ]

Today is a day for the ring and the cake the sun shines above, it’s true love today is the day all your worries fly away into the blue with the doves, it’s true love everywhere that you look, it’s true love every picture you took, it’s true love every promise you make, it’s true love can someone bring me some cake? My true love today, with a kiss you both got your wish that you’re dreaming of, your true love today you said yes in your beautiful dress the doves fly by with true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love

[ Cheers and applause ] Your little one isn’t just an angel. She’s a star. Yeah.

Salute. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ]
