7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 10, Episode 3 - Mama's Gonna Buy You a Diamond Ring - full transcript

Rosie moves in with Simon and remodels his studio, while keeping her apartment as a front, but that proves unpractical. Simon insists on telling their parents they'll get married, but after graduation. When Simon announces that he is going to come and bring bad news, dad and Lucy falsely 'hope' it's their break-up. They disagree on what to offer single women, except a 'church social', which Martin accepts and brings Meredith as their first date. Kevin eagerly accepts Joanie's invitation to her 'mom and I' class, where the sensitive hunk is an instant hit. The parents disagree whether to forbid Ruthie going out with 'too mature' Jack, so she gets Martin to set her up with honor student Sam Walker.

Welcome home.

It doesn't quite
look like my home.

How was work?

Work was fine.

What are we doing?

We are... living together.

Kind of.

Not officially.

I just thought I'd put
some of my things in here

so, you know, I could
stay over more--

like, every night,
if you want.

And the difference between that
and living together would be...

I still have
my place.

Although I told Sandy she
could move into my place

because she's
still in the dorm.

And since she's pregnant
with Martin's baby,

living at my place will
give her more privacy

and buy her
a little time

before everyone starts
talking about her.


I see.

That's good.

I guess.

But we can't live together.

My parents would never
let us live together.

I know.

That's why I
kept my place.

So officially we're
not living together.

But if my parents
show up at my place,

it's-it's gonna look
like our place.

Aw, you don't
like it?

I worked really hard to
make it all nice for us.

No, no, I like it.

And it looks, it looks very,
looks very nice.

But I...

What were you saying?


So do you think you can
get Jack to ask Ruthie out?

Why would
I do that?

Well, to make
your daughter happy.

What about me?

Shouldn't I
be happy?

Well, aren't you
happy in general?

I'm very happy.

Well, our daughter's not.

Ruthie feels that you made it
so difficult for Jack

to ask her out that, well, he
decided that he can't date her,

that they should
just be friends.

After many years of trying
to interfere

with Mary's and Lucy's dates,

seems I've-I've finally
hit my stride, huh?

Just a couple of serious looks,
couple of questions,

and viola,

just friends.

I-I've perfected the art
of the initial interview.

Okay, one, I don't think so.

And, two, wouldn't it have been
easier just to let Ruthie

see for herself that Jack's
too old for her?

Easier than what?

Easier than living in a house

with a teenager
who's angry with you.

Well, the way I figure,
she's gonna be angry at me

until she needs my permission
to go out with the next guy,

and then suddenly,
she'll get nice again.

Oh, no. She says
she's never going out again.

It's Jack or no one.

And you,
you're responsible for that.

You made Jack way too important.

You set up this fence
between you and Ruthie.

It's not good, Eric, it's not!

I'll go talk to her.

I'm not gonna go talk to Jack,
but I'll go talk to her.

And say what?

I don't know.

Something will come to me.

Like what?

I have to run everything

I want to say to Ruthie
past you now?

Maybe you could say that
you never said that she couldn't

go out with him, that you
only said that you wanted

to get to know him better,

and that now that
they're friends,

he can come around and hang out
and we'll go from there.

Or I could say, "Sorry, kiddo,
the guy looks like he's 21.

"And as nice as he is,
the thought of the two of you

out on a date together
really kind of creeps me out."


So, really my power base

is the teen girls
at the church.

They're the only ones
who really like me,

they're the only ones who really
have any relationship with me.

So, I went out to lunch with
the single women at the church,

and they feel that I should be
doing more in helping them

find husbands and getting
single guys into the church.

So church is basically
about meeting men.

No, it's not.

But I do think that
relationships in everyday life

have a lot to do with
one's relationship with God.

I don't think you're going to be
able to sell them on that.

If they want to meet guys,
they want to meet guys.

Maybe you should have church
at the pool hall

or the gun range or something.

I'd wish you quit

commenting on what I'm saying.

I'm just thinking out loud.

Yeah, all right.

Where's the Mommy and Me class?

It's at 10:00--
10:00 to 12:00.

It's at the community center.

Any other dads go?

It's a Mommy and Me class.

Yeah, I know.

There are no daddies
at the Mommy and Me class.

There will
be tomorrow.

Wait a minute.

You can't just go
to the Mommy and Me class.

I was invited.

Some woman named
Joan called.

I told her you were working

and I was staying
home with Savannah,

and she said they'd
love to have me.

Like... like that.

Now you're objecting
to Ruthie's dancing?

No, it's not that
she was dancing,

it's the way
she was dancing.

Did you talk to her?

No, I think this is something
you should talk to her about.

So, you think I should talk
to Ruthie about her dancing.

No, I think you should talk
to her about her sexuality.

I see. Okay, l-let me just
think about this a minute.

The real problem with Ruthie
going out with an older guy

like Jack or really
dating any guy

is that she's becoming
a sexual being,

and that really
frightens you.

It doesn't frighten you?
Well, I think

it's a natural process,
it's part of growing up,

and all our other children
went through the same thing.

You know,
Ruthie is a young woman.

She's Ruthie!

I know she's your
baby girl, Eric,

but she's not a baby anymore.

She's not old enough
to have sex

or even to be
thinking about having sex.

And I'm telling you,
if she's dancing like that,

she's thinking
about having sex.


Oh, hi, Dad.

Everything okay?

Yep, everything's fine.

Uh, you need money?

No. No, I'm doing fine.

I'm sticking to the budget and
hoping to even save some money.

Oh, that-that's great.

So w-why you calling?

I... uh, I just
wanted to say hello.

No, you didn't.

Maybe I'll come home
and talk to you about this.

Rose and I have made

some changes
in our relationship,

and I just thought
that you should--

I just want to talk to you
about Rose and me.

Correct me if I'm wrong,

but this doesn't
sound like good news.

Yeah, I guess it isn't.

I'll come home this weekend.

Bye, Dad.

Praise God.

I think Simon may have
broken up with Rose.

Can I come in?


Be my guest.

Pull up a chair.

What's going on?

Nothing really.

The world is
just full of

delightful possibilities.

Simon and Rose
broke up?

I think so.

Wait, you think so
or you know so?

Well, he's-he's coming home
to give me some bad news

regarding the two of them and
a change in their relationship.

And you think that's
that they broke up.

That's how
he made it sound, yeah.

Oh, Dad, that
is good news.

That is really
good news.

Yes, it is.

How was your day?

Oh, it was okay.

It seems that as I try
to repair my relationship

with the women at the church,

that all they really
want from me is to...

Find them men?

Or make their men behave more

the way they'd like them
to behave.

What, you think
I don't know this

after all the years
I've been at the church?

My advice is just to

be careful to encourage
the married couples

to talk to each other
or talk together with you,

and then encourage
the single women

to pursue interests
that would naturally

put them in the company of men
with similar interests.

Yeah, Kevin had

some thoughts on that, too.

I mean, it's just, it's easier
for women to meet a guy

who has something
in common with them

if they're participating
in activities together.

You know?

You like to bowl,
then go bowling

to meet a guy.

You like baseball,
go to baseball games.

Y-You have
an interest in reading,

then-then you go
to the book fair.

You like to travel,
then travel.

No wonder there are so many
single women at church.

W-What does that mean?

Well, I know it's been a
long time since I dated,

but it's been a really long time
since you dated.

Women don't
meet men bowling

or at sporting events
or traveling,

they meet men on the Internet

or through dating services
or at bars.

But that's not a very good way

to meet a potential husband,
do you think?

Well, no. I mean,
it's nice if

you get introduced by friends or
a family member introduces you.

That's-that's how you met Kevin.

Mary didn't introduce
me to Kevin.

I met Kevin when
I was being detained

at the airport in New York
for having a suspicious bag.

Then, as it turns out, he was
Mary's boyfriend's brother.

Kevin... arrested you?

Did-did I know this?

But like I was saying,

it's nice if you get introduced
by friends or family,

or if you can meet
a nice guy at work.

Yeah, but don't companies
frown on that?

Well, some of them are
changing their minds.

Someone did research
that said

that most men and
women would happily

risk losing a lousy job
for a good relationship.

But, you know, anyway...
here's what I was thinking,

a-and tell me if you think
it's a stupid idea.

What if we had
an old-fashioned,

covered-dish church social
with music and dancing?

And you think
that I've been away

from the dating scene too long?

I think the young people
wouldn't come, and the...

single women...

wouldn't find
any single men there.

I was thinking of asking some
of the young married couples,

like Kevin and me, to each
bring with them a single guy

who's interested
in a nice woman,

and everyone at the
church could come--

children, teens,

adults, singles,
married couples of all ages.

It'd be fun!

A church social?

A church social.

I don't know, Luce.

You could put
a band together and sing.

I'm impressed that you're
so committed to your project

that you would stoop so low
as to bribe me.


I hope I'm
not too late.

Anything left over?
Oh, I thought
you were eating at home.

Oh, I did-- my dad
threw together

this horrible canned
vegetable soup

with ground beef and
onions added to it

and called it
Marine stew.

He thought
it was great.

He's been eating out of
cans for over 20 years,

and he can't quite give
it up, so he's hopeless.

As a cook,
not as a father.
I think my mom

saved you a few pieces
of fried chicken.

Man, I miss your
mom's cooking.

So, I'm taking
Meredith out
Saturday night.

Any ideas?

Why would I have any ideas?
I don't date.

Yeah, yeah, complain
to someone who's sympathetic.

You can date if you want.

Not if it's with who I want.

Look... just give it up
already, okay?

Help me out here--
it's my first date

with Meredith-- I want it

to be special, you know,
not something school-related.


your first date
with Meredith?

I like her.

I do, too.

I have an idea.

I'm organizing a church social.

Mm, what's that?

It's a desperate
attempt for her

to fix up the
women at church

with some men so
they like Lucy.

Well, you can come, too.

Yeah, right.

It's kind of
an old-fashioned way

of getting people
together of all ages

with food and music.

People used to do it
all the time.

I think that that kind of
socializing is a lost art.

I think it's
a lost cause.

I think it
sounds good.

I'll ask her.

You're asking Meredith
to a church social?

Yeah. It sounds like fun.

What sounds fun about it?
I don't know.

There's... food.

Yeah. So how's Sandy?


Simon's friend?

Don't know, don't care.

Thanks for the chicken.

No, no, really,
we don't have to share the rent.

I'll pay the rent;
I'd be paying it anyway.

And you've already paid
for a dorm room

that you're not living in.

Did he call you back?

Well, keep calling him.

He can't just ignore you;
you're having his child.

Hang up and call him, okay?

Talk to you.

You have to call Martin.

He still hasn't returned
any of Sandy's calls.

I think we should just
stay out of that, okay?

That's Martin and
Sandy's problem.

You introduced them.

That's all I did.

I introduced them--
and by the way, you
were there, too,

so you introduced them
as much as I did.

No, no, no, I would never
have fixed Sandy up

with a high school guy.
Why not?

Because...she's Sandy.


In high school,
she had sex

with every guy
she went out with.

And I don't think
she changed that when
she got to college.

You never went out
with Sandy, right?

I mean, you knew
her from class,

but you never slept with her.

Right, I knew her from class.
I think she's

always been just
a little too desperate

to have guys like her,
know what I mean?

I'm going to bed.

Are you coming?

I have this take-home
statistics test.

I have to finish this.

Couldn't you do that
in the morning?

No. It's my first class.

I'll set the alarm.

I'll get you up early.


You were supposed
to get me up!

I got 15 minutes
to get to class!

I... I haven't even
finished my test.

I forgot. I'm sorry.


What? It was
your responsibility

to set the alarm.

I thought that you
were setting the alarm!

Why did you think
I was setting the alarm?

Because you
said you would!

Did I?

I don't remember.

Yes, you did, and you asked me,

what time do I need to be up--
I told you 6:00!

Well, that didn't mean
I was setting the alarm.

Then why'd you ask me
what time I need to be up?

Look, Simon, if we're
going to live together,

we've got to communicate better.

A good relationship is all
about good communication.

You know, I think Simon's
coming home this weekend,

and I think it's to tell us
that he and Rose broke up.


Or is this just
your last attempt

at trying to get me
to talk to you

before we get
to the school?
No, seriously,

I think they
broke up, but...

yes, I am trying to get you
to talk to me, because...

I miss talking to you.

All right,
I'll talk to you.

But only because
Mom asked me to.

I hope Simon and Rose
did break up.

I don't think
Simon's happy.

Neither do I.

They why don't you just tell him
he can't date her anymore?

Simon's almost
21 years old.


He's living on
his own at school,

he's got a scholarship,
he's got a job.

He's gonna graduate next
year and... be on his own.

Yet he continues to make
one bad decision after another.

Perhaps that's
because he doesn't...

respect my opinion

or ask my advice when it
comes to making decisions.

I see.

Well, I'd like to ask
your advice on something.


If you were 16...

Almost... 16.

...almost 16, and you
had the opportunity

to date one of the most
popular students in school,

and your dad messed
that up for you,

would you just say,
"Hey, thanks,

I guess you know best,"

or would you be angry
and decide that you weren't
going to give your father

another chance to mess up
something that meant so much
to you a second time?

I'd go with the first.

Yeah, I-I'd say,
"Thanks, Dad,

"you know best and...
and you always will,

because you're older
and wiser than I am."

That's a very
good way to go.

All right, I'm kidding.

Sort of.

Look, Ruthie...

maybe, uh, just maybe

I'm not comfortable
with your going out

with an older guy,
like Jack...

well, Jack...

because I'm
not comfortable

with the fact that
you're becoming quite...



I don't know
how to say this.

It's very awkward
for any dad to say

to his daughter.

The way you're...


and acting

and even dancing is

what one might...

call... sexy.

A-And, uh, "sexy"
means, to me, that

one is ready to have sex,

and you're not
ready to have sex,

even if you're thinking
about it a lot.

And it just, I don't
know, it just seems
that you would be...

less tempted to explore
your sexuality

if you were out with
a guy your own age,

with whom you share
certain interests,
and who looks...

less like... Jack.

So you think

that guys think that
I look, you know, sexy?

I mean, real guys,
guys in high school,

you think they think
that I look like that?

Yeah, I do.

Wow. Thanks.

I had no idea.
I mean, I feel sexy,

but I didn't know that
I actually look sexy.

I mean, I'm trying,
but I didn't know
I was actually there.

I actually thought guys
were mainly interested in me

because I'm friendly
and fun to be with.

You know,
this is great.

I'm not saying that I'm,
you know, ready to have sex

or anything, or that
I would or anything,

but it's nice to know
that you think

that guys would want
to have sex with me.

That's quite
a compliment.

Mom was right--

I do feel better
now that we're talking.


So, I wasn't paying attention.

I was thinking about
Lucy and Savannah.


And I turned my back
to cross the squad car,

and bam--
the kid pulls out a gun,

takes a shot at me
and then takes off running.

You are so brave.

See, if more dads
would spend time
with their children,

things like this
wouldn't happen.

Weren't you scared?

Scared? Yeah.

But really, I felt stupid.

I'd just endangered
my partner and myself

by not following
basic procedures.

It's like I was
telling my captain,

it was different
when it was just me,

even when it
was just Lucy and me.

But once you have a baby...

Everything changes.
Mm-hmm. So,

do you think this incident
influenced yours and Lucy's

decision that
you should leave your job

and stay home with Savannah?

Actually, I didn't tell Lucy.


Don't worry.

What's said at Mommy and Me

stays at Mommy and Me.

It's just that
I didn't want to frighten her

or for her to make
the decision out of fear.

I had been thinking
about it all summer,

but that was definitely
the decisive moment.

For me,

the decisive moment
was when I leaked breast milk

through a Dian von Furstenberg
dress in a board meeting.

Oh, yeah,

that's the worst.

I, of course,

haven't had that kind
of experience myself,

but I have to say,
I sympathize

and have so much more
respect for my wife

and for all mothers
now that I've witnessed

firsthand the physical changes

that take place with
a pregnancy and child birth.


I think I speak for all of us

when I say that you are just
a welcome breath of fresh air

to this class.

Well, thank you, Joan.

I think I'm really
going to enjoy this.

Oh, hi.

I was just dropping
off some things

that Rose had asked me
to bring by.

Her mail and a book
she was looking for.

You have a key?

Yeah, she gave me one in case
she ever gets locked out.

Look, it was really nice of her
to help get me out of the dorm,

even though I know that
it was just her excuse

to get to move in with you.

Well, I don't think it was
totally motivated by that.

Maybe not.

Anyway, I heard you were driving
down to Glenoak for the weekend.

Yeah, I thought I would.

Any chance I could ride down
there with you?

I really need to talk to Martin.

Um, I'd rather not get
in the middle of that.

Simon, you're in
the middle of it,

whether you want
to be or not.

And I'm pregnant
whether I want to be or not,

and Martin is the father
whether he wants to be or not.

Sandy, what about your family--
have you talked to them?

Have you told
your parents?

I never talk to my parents.

They're divorced and
I hate my stepdad

so I have nothing to
do with my mother,

and I haven't spoken
to my father since he left us.


I'm sorry you're going
through this alone.

I'm not going to go
through this alone.

I'm going to go through it
with Martin.

Let's talk, okay?

'Cause the last time we talked,

I wasn't sure that
I should tell you this,

because I haven't
told Rose this.

I was once in
Martin's situation,

or at least
I thought I was,

and I wasn't any too
happy about it either.

I went to a counselor,

I talked to someone who helped
me think things through

and I came around.


well, no really, fortunately,

as it ended up,
there was no pregnancy.

I'm pregnant.

Yes, but... my point was,

maybe give Martin
a little more time.

At least let him get
used to the idea.

Let him talk it through
with his dad

or with my dad
or just with some adult

who can give him
some perspective,

give him a chance
to sort out his feelings.

I mean, you don't
even know Martin.

What is it that
you want him to do?

What role do you want
him to take?

How involved do you want
him to be?

Ideally, I want him to go
to birthing classes with me,

be there with me
when the baby is born,

share 50/50 in the
financial responsibilities,

raise this child with me,

and I want him to do
that as my husband.

I mean I think
he's a nice guy,
and I'm nice,

and if it doesn't
work out, then,

you know, we just get divorced.

And actually,

I don't need a ride to Glenoak.

I am perfectly capable of
driving myself down there,

finding him
and telling him all this.

Yes, you are perfectly capable,
but please don't,

at least not yet.


Ruthie, wait up.

What's up?


Something is definitely up,

or you're up to something.

No, not really.

How are you?

I'm fine.


Do you want to go?

You want to go to this
church social thing?


Oh, um, of course
that sounds great.


Martin's taking me
to the church social.

Every time I hear
somebody say that,

I feel like we're living in
Little House on the Prairie

or The Waltons or something.

I think it sounds nice--
sweet really.

I think it
sounds boring.

Well, then don't go.

I'm not.

Some of the guys on
the team are coming.

You're kidding.



Because Lucy asked me

if I'd ask some
of them to come.

Well, I'm not interested
in any of them.

I'm interested in Jack

and I'm going to get Jack
interested in me.

Why can't she just
leave him alone?

I think it's a challenge.

You know, he rejected her.

So now she thinks she has
to go out with him.

I thought Reverend Camden said

he didn't want her
to go out with him.

No, he just said that he had
to get to know him better.

That doesn't mean
she can go out with him.

It's so hard to find somebody
to go out with,

somebody you really care about.

Yeah, it is.

I'm sure she wouldn't
mind if you came.

It's a church social.
Everyone's invited.

And we can bring
the babies?

Yep. The nursery
will be open.

That sounds so nice.

We never get out.

We never want to
leave little Max.

You're so lucky to have
family here to babysit.

You and Lucy can go out
anytime you want.

I never get to go anywhere.

I'm too tired
to go anywhere.

Being a single mom
is so hard.

I'm not even back
to work yet.

I didn't know
you were a single mom.

Yeah, I never found
the right guy.

Sperm bank.


I was approaching 40
and I always wanted a baby,

but what I really want

is a family.

Oh, hi, Maxine, Rhonda.

What are you doing
with my shoes?

I just opened
the closet door.

I'm not doing anything
with your shoes.

Do you need all
of these shoes?

Oh silly Simon,
a girl's got to have shoes.

It's just a studio apartment.

There's just one closet

and as much as
I love you, Rose,

I don't think
this is the place

that we should start
our lives together.

Well, we could move

to my apartment and let Sandy
have this apartment.

Half of your rent
is more than my rent--

I can't afford to move
to your apartment.

My parents can't afford
to move me to your apartment,

not that they would ever
volunteer to pay half your rent

so that we can live together.

Which by the way,
this just occurred to me,

are you planning on paying
half the rent here?

Of course not. I'm still
paying for my apartment.

Your parents pay
for your apartment.

Well, they won't pay

for my apartment and half
your apartment, too.

If you got a job, you could
pay half the rent here.

But your parents pay
the rent here.

Yes, but I'd like to be able
to tell them

that you're willing to pay
half the rent

before I tell them that you've
just moved in here.

I can't do that.

My parents pay my rent

so I don't have to
work and go to school.

They want me to focus
on my studies.

Are you gonna tell them
you just moved in here?

No. If I told them that,
they'd expect me to have a ring

and a date for the wedding.

So, Sandy just doesn't
answer my phone

and she calls me
here when they call.

I don't think we should
hide living together

from your parents.

Then buy me a ring
and set a date.

The date has been set
for May, 2007--

after we graduate.

I'll buy you a
ring, I promise.

Hopefully, I can save
enough money by May,

before the end of
the school year.

But, if my parents are
going to know about

our living arrangement,

I think your parents
should know, too.

You want to tell them?

No, I haven't even
met your parents.

You tell them.

I'll tell my parents,

and you tell yours.


If that's what you want to do.

But, like I said, a ring
and a date would help.

Maybe there's a compromise.

Maybe we can tell them we want
to try living together

to-to see whether or not
we want to get married.

I don't think my mother would
want me living with you

as some kind of experiment.

We're getting married.

I know, but if this is going to
get me off on the wrong foot

with your mom, or with your dad,

then, honey, maybe we should
just slow down a bit,

maybe we shouldn't live
together just yet.

But we are living together.

Maybe you could just come over
here some of the time,

like you were doing.

I'm in. I live here now.

It's gonna be fine, really.

I'll tell my parents.

When they get back and when
we've agreed on the date

and preferably when I have
a ring on my finger.

Then you tell your parents
this weekend or next weekend

or next month or next year
or whatever you want.


I'm going home this weekend,
I'm gonna tell them alone.

If they're going to get upset,

they might as well just be upset
with me, and not the both of us.

Your choice.

I can go with
you if you want.

No, I'll go.


Anybody want to see the baby?

I got my first sonogram today.


Hi, George.


Hi, Alan.

Hi, Ruthie.

Steve, how are you?

I'm good, thank you.

Hey, why don't you change
your mind about

that church thing and go?

I'll try to find some
guy to introduce you to.

Really? Like who?

I don't know,

but there are
more guys at school

than Jack who would
go out with you,
don't you think?

I guess.

So like someone on
the baseball team?

Not Mac. I don't want
to go out with Mac.

And I don't think you
should go out with Mac.

He's too old.
He's not too old,

but I already know him,

I want to out with
somebody more like--

Jack, yeah, I know.

But maybe if you weren't
so, uh, focused on Jack,

you could find a guy that you
like and your parents like.

My parents don't
have to like him.

No, but it wouldn't hurt.

I guess, but he has to be good
looking, popular and hot.


Yeah, you know, sexy.

Why do you want
someone who's sexy?

There's nothing wrong
with being sexy.

Some people even
think I'm sexy.

Why do you want people
to think you're sexy?

Why not?

People think you're sexy.

No, they don't.

Yes, they do.

Well, I'm not.

Well, you are.

Okay, look, I'll bring a guy
for you to meet;

a guy I think you'll like.

I'm no judge of whether
or not a guy is, um, "sexy,"

but I think I could find a
better date for you than Jack.

All right, fine,
I've nothing else to do.


can I be the guy
you fix her up with?

Uh, how old are you?

I'm a sophomore,

and I'm an honor student, and
once Ruthie talked to me

in the halls.

She used me
to make this other guy

she was going out with,
Vincent, jealous.

Ah, okay. Meet us
at the church around 7:00.

Hey, thanks, I owe you.

Oh, uh, hey, wait. Um,

what was your name?

Sam. Sam Walker.

All right, Sam,
I'll see you there.

I love that song.

We're practicing
for Saturday night.

Can you play that song, Dad?

Well, uh, yeah,
of course.

We really like it.

Remember when we used
to dance to that song?

Yeah, it's a good song.

Ruthie's not going
Saturday, right?

Ah, well, she
said she's not,

but she'll probably
change her mind.

Oh, please,
you're not worried

about her dancing still,
are you?

Well, kind of.

Did you talk to her?

Oh, hey, Sam and David,

would you please take

your boom box upstairs
to practice?

I have to talk to Dad.

I talked to her.


And she's speaking to me
again, and that's good.


And evidently,
she had no idea

that young men might find her
attractive physically.

Well, surely,
she must

have had some idea that she's
an attractive young woman.

I mean, I thought the plan
was to talk to her

about how sexuality is just
part of the whole picture,

just part of who she is,
not all of who she is.

I was, I was going
down that road,

and I, I took a wrong turn,

and long story short, she now
thinks that guys like her

because she's sexy, and she's
quite happy about that.

It seemed to be a complete
surprise to her.

I don't know.

But what about all
her other attributes?

Those don't seem
to matter right now.

Look, since Ruthie's
talking to me again,

I'll get back into another
conversation with her

and I'll try to steer her
in some other direction.

No, no, no, no, you've had your
chance. I'm gonna talk to her.

Great, great. I'm sure you'll
do better than I did.

You talk to Ruthie
and I'll talk to Simon,

and I'll, I'll comfort him

when he tells us the bad,
bad news about Rose.

Your friend's dancing
with Maxine.

Yeah, I pointed her out.

He looks like he's
happy and so does she.

Yeah, well, uh,

Maxine's husband
doesn't look happy.

I didn't think
she had a husband.

Rhonda doesn't have
a husband.


Well, still, I mean,
look at this place.

This is a huge success.

Is it?

Are you kidding?

Hey, Jerry,
Maxine's husband.

Oh, sorry about that. I got her
mixed up with someone else.

Someone else in your,
in your Mommy and Me class?


Are you planning on becoming
a regular member?


Well, I guess if I got shot
at by some kid,

I'd quit my job
and become a woman, too.

What was he talking about?

Shot at?

You were shot at?

Kind of.

When were you gonna tell me?!


I'm really glad
we came.

This is gonna be fun.

I really don't dance,
you know.

I didn't know that,
but I don't care.

So, where is he?

Ah, he's here.


Over there.

I already know him.

He asked me
out before.

I said no.
I turned him down.


He's not sexy.

I told you I'm not
the judge of that.

He looks like a nice guy.

I knew I shouldn't have
come here.


I had no idea
this was gonna be
such a big event.

I didn't either.

Isn't it great?


So, how's everything?

Everything's fine.





I have been looking
for you everywhere.

Mom, you remember Sandy.


Do you mind if I talk
to Simon alone?

No, you two talk, and then
I wanna talk to Simon alone.

What are you
doing here?

I came to talk to Martin.

Look, he has to talk to me.

He will, okay?
Just give him some time.

I told you just
give him some time!

I can't!
I don't have the time to give.

I mean, if I could
control time,

I'd go back to the night
that I first met him.

It's okay.

Hey, it's gonna be fine.
everything's gonna be fine.

Let's go.
