7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 11, Episode 1 - Turn, Turn, Turn - full transcript

Now the kids are all been away several months, except for Sam and David. The oldsters feel rather awkward, most of all young stay at home dad, Kevin Kinkirk. Kevin is an amazing help in every respect, and thinks of starting a house renovation business with enthusiastic Annie. After loosing their twins, Lucy is having a hard time. Endlessly patient husband Kevin always bends over backwards trying to help Lucy. Even when Lucy goes far too far in public. Martin Brewer insists on turning his life around to be a father for his son with Sandy Jameson. Sandy insists he should live his own life, and let her live hers. Martin calls Sandy a Lucy-clone, a virtual Camden so Simon would take her back. Meanwhile he's jealous of her date Daniel.

Oh, that-that-that's sweet,
but you know,

you're too young for a boy
to give you roses.

I know, I know, but that's not
why you're there.


Okay. She's better,
I think, um...

Oh, hang on,

that might be her
coming in the back door.

Oh, no,
it's just your father.

Oh, who? I'll take it.

Yeah, you want to talk
to your dad? Okay.

Oh, okay. Okay, b-bye.

Why don't I ever get to
speak to our children?

Well, uh, Matt's really busy
with the boys and, uh...

Sarah's had a cold, and, uh,
they're both just really busy.

I don't know how they do it.

Of course, it's not any easier
for Carlos and Mary,

what with three children,
her new teaching job,

and then moving back
to New York.

I do not know why they want
to move back to New York,

but, boy, does she love
the new teaching job.

She really loves it.

Oh, and did I tell you?

There's a possibility

that the basketball coach
might be out

for a couple of months
and Mary might take over

for her for, like, two months.

No, you didn't mention it,
but, you know, maybe if I ever

actually saw our children or
talked to one of them myself...

You know.

Oh, I must have told Ruthie,
I guess. That was Ruthie.

From Scotland?
She was calling from Scotland,

and I didn't get to talk to her?

Well, it was a phone card.
Time ran out.


(hangs up phone)

D-Did you have
a bad time with Luce?

No, I didn't even
see Lucy today.

She... she said
she'd come in, but...

This is just
an awful situation.

Oh, did I mention

that Martin's going to spend
the weekend with Sandy?

Well, that's...
that's good, right?

Yeah, I guess.

W-Why would it not be good?

Well, I-I don't know,
he just--

Well, he has this crazy idea.


Why not?

Because I'm not
in love with you.

Well, maybe I'm in love
with you.

No, you're not.

You're in love with
your son, and that's great,

but that doesn't mean
that you have to marry me.

You're just saying that because
you're in love with Simon.

No, I'm not.

But you are in love with Simon.

Well, he's not in love with me.

So marry me.

I can't.

I really can't.

Y-You have to.

No, I don't.


Look, Martin, I really want
to get my degree first,

start my career,
and then think about

whether or not
I want to get married.

To anyone.

W-What does that mean?

You don't, you don't want
to get married to anyone.

Who-Who is anyone?

Are-Are-Are you dating anyone?

N-Not exactly.

Kind of.

We're friends.

He's just someone that I met
when I transferred here.

Yeah, that was a,
that was a great idea,

in your senior year.

Uh, you really think you want
to be a minister?

Yeah, I do.

(glasses clink)

(sighs softly)

KEVIN: I really think
this was a good idea.

Having the boys eat early.

Well, you know,
I thought I'd be sad

when the children
left the house,

but I think I was born
to be an empty nester.

You know,
we still have David and Sam.

I know, but they're so easy.

I mean, they eat,
they go upstairs,

they do their homework,
they go to bed.

I mean, today I only did
one load of laundry.

I mean, it was all towels.

Just towels.

I think I've died
and gone to heaven.

I'm sorry.

No, it's okay.

It's just me and I'm okay.

And I want things to go back
to normal so none of us have

to worry about
what we're saying every minute.

You've had a rough summer.

So, how's Mary and Carlos doing?

Mary's very tired.

(Eric and Annie chuckle)

But she-she really--
she loves her new job

and she might even get to, uh,
fill in as the basketball coach

while the coach is away
on maternity leave.

Oh, so you got to talk to her?

Uh, n-not exactly, no, but...

And the girls?

Oh, Charlie just loves
his-his two sisters.

In fact, hopefully, I get to
visit them in a couple of weeks.


Mm-hmm. Oh, yes.

Mary's very tired;
she needs my help.

And David and Sam?

Well, they have school.

So I should just
work around that?

I can help.

I'd be happy to pick them up

and take care of them
in the afternoons.

Well, thank you, Kevin.

Oh, and-and don't forget,
we've got the roofers coming

at some point to do repairs
on my little moms' home.

If they call when you're gone,

Sam and David can drive up
with me and Savannah.

Y-You've been so helpful
during this renovation.

I had no idea you were
interested in things like that

or that you knew
so much about it.

Yeah, well,
Annie's a great teacher,

and I've watched Lucy
with what we did to our house,

and, well,
I guess I finally caught on.

You know what I was thinking?

I was thinking maybe we should

all get into
the house flipping business.

That's a great idea.

Me, too?

If you want to.

What would I do?

Well, um, you could
bless the houses

and then burn some sage,

and, you know, spread some
positive energy for the buyers.

I think you could probably just
get a soothsayer to do all that.

And... Luce?

Uh, I mean, are you going
to get Luce into the, uh,

house flipping business, too?

'Cause I'm kind of in need
of her help around the church.

I haven't asked her.

She's not in the mood to do much
of anything right now.

I realize that;
thus the need for her help.

Oh, she'll come around, Kev.

I don't think

she's going
to come around anytime soon.

And I really am tired of her
being angry all the time.

I understand it,
but I'm tired of it.

And I think it would be
a good idea for both of us

if I get out of the house and
do something else for a while.

Well, I-I see,
but, um, you know,

Lucy's not going
to stay angry forever.

- She'll come around.
- Yeah.

And when she does,
there'll-there'll be

plenty of work
for her to do at the church.

I'm just saying.

I hear you, Dad.

Well, I guess it's just
you and me, Kev.

I've always wanted to get
into construction.

This'll be great.

Don't you...
kind of already have a...

full plate with your
little moms' home?


Basically, my job is done.

I got the home built on time.

And it's running very smoothly,

and all the girls love working
with Aida.

And-And the secondhand shop,
my gosh, it's turning a profit

for the first time this month.

So, you know, next.

SANDY: No, it's too late
to come in.

Come on, he won't care.

He will care.

No, he won't.

I do care.

- No.
- (laughs)

No, you can't.


Good night.

Interesting name.

So you're Aaron's father?

Yeah, I am the father and
I'm also very close to her.

(baby fussing)

Good night, Daniel.

Can't you take a hint?

Can't you take
a hint?

She doesn't want you here.

And if you weren't Aaron's
father, you wouldn't be here.

If? Yeah, if I weren't
Aaron's father, but I am.

Odd that you'd wait till Sandy
is interested in somebody else

before you decide you're
interested in her and your son.

I mean, not odd, really,
more... immature.

What is this, judgment week
at the seminary?

You don't know
anything about me.

I know plenty.

I know she had
a one-night stand with you

just to make Simon jealous.

You knew that, right?

Good night.

(door shuts)

LUCY: "The dog said, 'Bark'
and the cow said, 'Moo.'

"The rooster

"The sheep said, 'Baa'
and the horses neighed.

"The farmer said,

'Don't be afraid!""

You don't have to sneak up on us
like that.

Sorry, I thought
you might be sleeping.

Well, I told you that Savannah
slept too late this afternoon

and she wasn't going to
be able to sleep tonight.

She does that once in a while.

Sometimes she takes a longer nap
than other times.

It's okay, Luce.

Yeah, it's okay, but then
she doesn't sleep at night.

How'd she like the movie?

Oh, we liked it, didn't we,
Savannah? How was the movie?

(speaking indistinctly)

Cute. When'd she learn
to say that?

Tonight. Sorry you missed it.

I thought you didn't want me
to go with you.

I didn't say that.

You said you wanted to spend
some time with Savannah.

Well, I didn't say I wanted
some time without you.

You wanted me to go?

No, I didn't say that, either.

Okay, well, I'm happy to do
whatever you want me to do.


Could you go next door
and tell the neighbor

to stop playing her music
so loud?

It's keeping Savannah up
at night.

- What music?
- The music that's keeping

Savannah up at night.

I don't think Savannah's
been up at night.

It's the reason she's been
sleeping too late and too long

in the afternoon.

I can't just go over
and harass the neighbor

about music
that she's not playing.

Fine, then wait till she starts
playing her music.

Then get out of bed,
go over there and harass her.

That I can do.


Don't you wish they could
just stay that young forever?

No, I really don't.


I think each year
is more interesting

than the one before.

I-I love seeing them grow up.

I love seeing all our children
grow up, you know.

I like to see them have
children of their own.

The Lucy situation
still breaks my heart.

I know.

Me, too.

But, you know, for her sake,

we're just all going
to have to be strong

and get past this,

so that she and Kevin can
get on with their lives.

We have been very blessed.

Yes, we have.

Although I do feel

we're sitting on a bit
of a Lucy time bomb.

This time last year,
I wasn't even speaking to you.

Yeah, I remember.

We're like
the perfect family... almost.


We could be the perfect family.

I'm not sure if I even know
what the perfect family is.

Well, I know what it isn't.

It isn't some other guy
raising my son.


is that what's motivating you
to care more about Aaron and me?


No, that's not what's
motivating me,

but I don't want you
to be with Simon

or any other guy.

Well, maybe my life isn't
about what you want.

Maybe it's about
what I want as well.

And I might have had a chance
at a relationship with Simon

if you hadn't have made it
so clear to him

that you didn't want him
around us.

What's wrong with that?

What's wrong with that is

that you're not really
in love with me.

You just don't want anyone else
near me because of Aaron.

That's not true, but what
would be wrong with that?

What would be wrong with that

is that I deserve
to be loved, too.

And I deserve
to be loved for me.

And for who I am.

You are the mother of my son.

And I love you for that.

Thank you.

But I'm not just the mother
of your son.

And I'm not just Aaron's mother.

That's just part of who I am
and who I want to be.

And I want to be a minister.

And I want to help
other single moms

and other girls
who grew up like me.

Other girls who think that

they can't change
because they made some mistakes.

Look, you and I got together
when I was the old me.

And I'm a whole new me.

Me coming here for school

is my way of getting
a fresh start on my life.

Look, all I'm asking for
is a chance.

I want to be with you and Aaron.

And I'm always going to be
a part of your life,

because I'm always going to be
involved in his life.

Well, I appreciate
your involvement, I do.

Most of the time.

But I don't really know
how I feel about you right now.

Just to be perfectly honest.

But let's just...
let's see how things go.

That's all I'm asking for.

(clears throat)
Okay, um...

why don't I run
to the grocery store for you

and pick up something we can
make for dinner together.

That is, unless of course,
you have a date with...

uh, what's-his-name-- Randall.


But no.

He hasn't called.

Okay. Well, uh, I'll be back.

(door closes)

(phone ringing)


Luce? Hi.

It's Sandy. How are you?

What do you mean?

I mean...

I'm sorry to bother you.

I was just asking how you are.

I'm terrific.

Don't want to bother me

Because I know you're
a very busy woman, and...

It's just that... Martin came
to visit us this weekend,

and I don't really
know what to do.

About what?

About Martin.
All of a sudden,

he thinks we're supposed
to get married or something.

Oh, yeah?

He's just so...

I don't know... young.

Mm. Well, he's not any younger

than he was
when you slept with him.

You know, in fact,
he's a year older.

Yeah, I guess he is.

All right.

Sorry I bothered you.

You know, you're going to have
to get used to handling

your own problems
if you ever want

to help other people
with their problems.

I know,
and you're so good at that.

It's not a problem exactly.

It's just...

I don't want to be
in a relationship with Martin.

And there are a lot of nice guys
at school here, and...

some of them talk too much,
but I don't know,

it seems like
they might be pretty accepting

of my being a single mom.

I thought you went there
to study.

I... I thought you wanted
to become a minister.

You know, I-I thought
you wanted to focus

on your education,
your new career.


You're right.

I should just stick to that.



Everything okay?


I guess I was just wondering
who was on the phone.


Because maybe I'm wrong here,

but it seems that whoever it was
might have upset you.

I'm not upset.

I'm just irritated.

Sandy is so irritating
these days.

- How so?
- How so?

She thinks she's me.

No, you know what?
I take that back.

She thinks she's better than me.

Converts, I tell you--
they're fanatics.

Think I'm going to go hang out

at your parents' house
while Savannah's napping.


Why are you spending
so much time

at my parents' house?

Are you hiding something?

Your mom and I were thinking...

Oh, so my mom's hiding things
from me, too, now?

No, she wanted me to talk to you
about it first.

But you talked to her first,
you didn't talk to me first.

Why doesn't anyone talk to me?

I don't know, I guess
no one wants to upset you.

Ah, but you and my mom

are coming up with ideas
to upset me.

No, it may not upset you at all.

What may not upset me at all?

We were thinking about

getting into the house flipping

I don't have time to go into
the house flipping business.

Me and your mother.


It was just an idea.

Bad idea!

First Sandy, now you?

Why do you want to be me?

Why do you want to take
my skills at renovating

and one-up me?

I hadn't really
looked at it like that.

Why is it
that you enjoyed building

that little moms' home
with my mother so much

but yet you didn't help me
do anything at our own home?

You wouldn't let me.

No, I take that back.

I was so intimidated by how
great you are at doing things

that I really didn't want
to get in your way.

Well, you had no problem
getting in my mother's way.

I could have taught you
everything that she taught you.

Yes, and I apologize

for not letting you teach me
what she taught me.

And just forget about me
going into business with her

because I don't want
to do anything--

anything--to upset you.

Yeah, okay.

But... just go over
to my mother's house

and tell her
that you don't want to go

into the house flipping business
with her.

Yeah. I'll do that.

And then go
to the neighbor's house,

because you didn't go
last night

and she turned up
the music again.

The music is nice.

You and Savannah
were sound asleep.

Well, if I was sound asleep,
then how did I hear it?

Maybe I'll wait until tonight
to go over there.

If she's still
playing loud music,

I promise, I'll go over there
and tell her to turn it down.

Unless of course we're all
sleeping through it again.

Oh, and when you go over
to my mother's house

and tell her
that you don't want to go

into the house flipping

don't tell her
that I don't want you

to go into
the house flipping business.

Can't they let me
have something for myself?


Everyone wants to be me.

Except me.

I talked to Lucy about Annie
and I flipping houses,

and I decided
it wasn't a good idea.


- Is Lucy with you?
- No.

So you didn't think
it was a good idea

or Lucy didn't think
it was a good idea?

Lucy told you not to blame her.

Uh, you know, I-I, uh...

I don't think it's such
a good idea anyway.

You don't think
what's such a good idea,

Kevin and I flipping houses?
Why not?

It was just a crazy idea anyway.


Wh... Oh, Lucy didn't
like the idea? Huh?

Yeah, well...
you know, maybe it's better

if you stay close to home
right now, and me, too.

We can always go
into business together;

it doesn't have to be right now.

- Yeah.
- She'll come around.

(Sam and David gasp)


Hi, honey.

- Hi, Luce.
- Hey, Luce.

Kevin, if you wouldn't mind

taking Savannah,
I'd like to talk to my dad.

Alone, Mom,
if you wouldn't mind.

Kevin and I didn't mean
to upset you.

Everything upsets me,
but I think we all know

that everything
has always upset me.

I'm just an upset person.

But I think it's time

to stop letting everything
upset me.

Dad, can we just talk?

Yeah, of course.

Um, if you don't mind,

I'd like to give the sermon

Yeah, well, I guess you could,

but, uh, Luce,
tomorrow is tomorrow.

I mean,
I have a sermon prepared.


could this maybe wait
till next week?

'Cause, you know, maybe give
yourself a little more time

to not let things upset you.

Just kind of sit with that
for a few more days.

I have something I want to say.

And I want to say it
in front of everyone.

Okay, well, uh...

Why don't you start with me.

What do you want to say?

Why do you want to know?

Y-You don't trust me?

I mean, haven't I come through
for you every time before?

Okay, no, you're-you're right.

Kind of.

But, Luce, it's been
almost four months

since you've been
behind the pulpit and...


And it takes time.

Lucy, it takes time to heal.

Take your time,
take all the time you need.

I don't want to take any more
time than I've already taken.

In fact, I... I think
I've taken too much time.

I want to speak to
the congregation tomorrow.

Because that way,
tomorrow is my deadline.

So... so tomorrow,
after the sermon,

I can officially put
this horrible summer behind me

and I can start to look forward
to my future.

Or... or...

maybe you could
officially move on

in a more private,
personal way, and just...

...go out to dinner
with Kevin, or...

go away for a weekend
with Kevin,

or even Kevin and Savannah.

I don't want
to go away with Kevin.

I don't want to go away
with Kevin and Savannah.

That's not what I want to do.

What I want to do
is just publicly acknowledge

what I went through as a way of
letting go of my anger

so I don't have to go away.

You don't think
I know that I'm angry?

Yeah, I'm a little angry,

but I'm not going
to be angry anymore.


Well what?

You're always saying,
"Choose your feelings."

Well, I'm choosing.

You have a problem with that?!

Well, it's just that...

it-it--sometimes it takes a lot
of strength to choose,

and it takes time
to gather your strength and...


Don't do this.

Don't, don't treat me
like a child.

You don't have to explain to me
how life works.

I'm a grown woman.

I'm an associate pastor.

I just want to speak, okay,
Reverend Camden?

All right. I really don't
recommend it, Luce,

but if you feel
that you need to do this

and it can't wait...

It can't.

I can't.

Not even another week?

Not even.

All right.

Then, tomorrow,
the church is yours.

Thank you.

Look, we can still get there.

It took me two hours
to get Aaron to go to sleep.

I am not going
to go put him in a car now.

But he sleeps in the car.

If he starts out awake,
he sleeps in the car.

Look, I just thought
it'd be nice

if we could go to church
together, like a family.

Maybe some other Sunday.

It's too far to drive

and this hasn't been
the easiest morning with Aaron.

You go.

No. I don't want to drive

all the way down there
and back by myself.

Well, if you went by yourself,

you wouldn't have
to drive back.

You could just go to church
and then go back to your school.

Well, yeah, I've been
thinking about that.

- About what?
- About what a pain it is

that we live separately.

Maybe I should change schools.

And give up baseball?

Some things are more
important than baseball.


Like becoming a minister.

No, Martin, you can't put me
and my career

ahead of you and your career.

Uh, no, I was thinking about
making your career my career.

Well, you can't do that.

Why not? You did.

You made Lucy's career
your career.

Yeah, but that's different.

I feel called to be a minister.

Well, maybe I do, too.

No, you don't.

That's ridiculous.

Frankly, I think
it's just as ridiculous

that you want to be a minister.

I think you just
want to be a Camden.

You think if you can
become a minister,

maybe Simon Camden
will like you better--

maybe even love you,
maybe even marry you.

Then you can be a Camden.

And when I say "you,"
of course I mean

the old you as well
as the new you.

I mean, isn't that what you
really want--to be a Camden?

Look, I think you should go.

Drive down to Glenoak,
go to church,

maybe stop by and see your dad.

And just spend the day out.

Get some distance
from Aaron and me.

I think it'd be good for you.

You know,
you could have just told me

you were trying to make Simon
jealous when you slept with me.

When did you find that out?

The other night from your date.

Daniel told you?

Yeah, he thought I already knew.

Which is why
he probably hasn't called,

in case you're wondering.

He's probably just waiting
for me to get out of here.


Well, the only reason
that I told him

is because it's
a new relationship,

and, for once, I thought
it would be nice

if I could be absolutely
honest with a guy.

All right, I guess I could
have told you

why I slept with you, but...
what difference does it make?

You know, you didn't really have
a good reason

for sleeping with me, either.

And if I recall correctly,

it was because you just hadn't
done it before

and you wanted to get it
over with.

Oh, okay, so what happened
was my fault.

How is it more my fault
than it is your fault?

Good morning.

When I had to write my first
sermon as associate pastor,

I went to my dad for advice.

And he told me just
to take a look in the mirror.

It worked.

He helped me.

He helped me a lot
and he always has.

And so have all of you.

You have all been so patient
with me and my learning process,

so thank you.

Thank-Thank you
for letting me be here.

I-I really have learned
a lot and...

Um, I'm sorry.

I... I just lost
my train of thought.

Um... uh, oh, yeah.

I was saying,
I really have learned a lot.

And one of the things
that I have learned is that

when good things happen,
everyone takes responsibility,

everyone wants credit.

However, when something goes,

well, um... wrong,
then that's not the case, is it?

When something bad happens,
no one takes responsibility,

no one takes credit.

Everyone just blames God
because, "Oh, no!

"We humans,
we can't control anything,

"so it must be God.

It must be God's fault."

We're just God's victims.

You know, God just must make
bad things happen to us

to teach us
mean little life lessons.

Well, um...

this summer, something...

something bad happened to me.

Well, um, actually, it was...

uh, it was,
it was more sad, really.

Um... a sad thing
happened to me...

...and there's nothing
I can do about it.

Um, you just have to...

you just have to go on
with your life--

um, move on,
whether you want to or not.

Um, we have to go on,
whether we're angry or not,

and, I mean...

who is there really for me
to be angry with?

Um, it's not God's fault
that this sad thing happened.

And if it's not God's fault,

then who can I blame?

Then-Then whose fault is it?

Oh, this is not good.

Well, I'll tell you.

No, please.

My husband.

I told him I was not ready

to have another child, but,

no, he wanted
to have another baby.

And who wouldn't sleep with him?

I mean, yeah, he's gorgeous,
he's kind, he's a great dad,

he's a great husband,
and you know, he's hot.

Isn't he hot?

Meh. You'd sleep
with him, right?

(congregation murmuring)


Yeah, of course you would.

Any woman would.

I mean, who wouldn't sleep
with that?

(congregation murmuring)



Oh, no, it's your fault, too.

Oh, and hers, yeah.

You think just anyone
can go off and have twins?

You know, just because
you two had twins

and-and Matt had twins
and Mary had twins,

and, you know,
Simon's probably out trying

to have some twins right now,
and you know what?

Ruthie's probably going

to come home from Scotland
with twins.

So-So all of you,
everyone in my family,

it's your fault.

I mean, everyone except for
Sam and David, of course.

Nothing's their fault.

They're just innocent
little victims.




Um, I guess
that's all I wanted to say.

Oh, like you didn't know

this was going to happen.

Wish I had a load of laundry
to do, you know?

Lots of laundry,
a ton of laundry.

Maybe a greasy, grimy shirt
with a big stain.

Or a-a floor to mop,

with some nice
muddy footprints...

...tracking from the door
to the stairs.


Oh, the best thing
in the world: a broken pipe.

You know, with, like...

In the basement,
three feet of flooding.

I just need something
to clean up.

I need, you know, a mess
that I can make go away.

I need, you know,
something to fix.

I miss the kids.

I miss Matt, I miss Mary.

I miss Simon, I miss Ruthie.

I miss them being kids.

I especially miss Lucy
being a kid, you know?

I don't think I would
have ever let her grow up

if I knew this was
going to happen.

It's just so...
it's just so unfair.

I know.

For everyone.


Before you say anything,
I just want you to know...

it's okay, Luce.

No, it's not okay.

I can't believe I did that.

I can't believe I said
all of those things

in front of
our entire congregation.

You're not going to try
to have me committed

or anything, are you?

For saying I'm hot?

I knew you thought I was hot.

That's one of the reasons
I married you.

We have to talk.

No, we don't.

I know I'm crazy.

And now everyone in our
congregation knows I'm crazy.

You're not crazy.

Depends on your definition
of "crazy," I guess.

I am so angry at
myself for doing that.

Oh, I just...

I made things worse.

I mean, things were
already bad enough,

and I just made things worse.

What things?

I hate the way
people look at me.

I hate the way people look
at us.

I hate the way people talk
to me like I am so pathetic.

I-I... I hate the way
everyone just agrees

with every crazy thing I say.


Not just you.

I mean, my parents,
my brothers, my sisters.

I mean, no one treats me
the same way that they did.

Oh, no. You know what?
I take that back.

They treat me the same way
they did as when I was 13.

It makes me so...




I said I was angry, didn't I?

Yeah, angry and crazy.

And I'm angry at you because
you do the same thing.

I mean, you do every stupid
thing I tell you to do,

because you're afraid
I'm going to crack up

or something if you don't.

No, I don't.

I didn't go over
to the neighbor's house

and ask her
to turn down the music.

Not yet, anyway.

And, obviously,
you're perfectly capable

of cracking up
without any help from me.

What else are you angry about?

You really think that
what happened was my fault?

Kind of.

You sure you don't think
it was your fault?


I think you're angry at you.

I think that you think

you could have done
something differently,

and things would have
turned out differently.

No, I don't.

Look, I don't care
if you blame me.

I'd rather you not do it
in church again,

but go ahead and blame me,
if that's what you need to do.

'Cause I'd rather
you blame me than you,

because you didn't
do anything wrong, Luce.

I know that.

You sure?

- Luce?
- Maybe if I

just hadn't gotten pregnant
so soon after Savannah,

maybe if I had gotten
to the hospital sooner,

or if I had been bigger
or stronger somehow.

No, Luce.

Well, if it's not my fault,

and it's not your fault,
and it's not our family's fault,

then it must be God.

Then it's got to be God's fault.

Or.... it just had
to have happened.

And if it just happened, then...

...it can't be fixed.

Um, I've been...

I've been doing some thinking
over the summer,

because I didn't want
to decide too quickly, and...

But I think I've decided now.


I don't ever want to try
to have kids again, Kevin.


Even if it's no one's fault.

It's just you and me
and Savannah and...

and these guys.

That's a big enough family
for me.

I understand.

And if you decide
to change your mind,

I understand that, too.

And I don't want you going
into business with my mother.

All right.

And I'm still not happy

about Sandy trying
to get into my business.

Fine, and I'm still not going
to try and have you committed.

Haven't seen that in a while.

I love you, Kevin.

Yeah, I love you, too.

I can't get to sleep.

Me, neither.

It's too quiet in here.

Good night, Sam.

Good night, David.

Good night, Mom.

Good night.

- Love you.
- Love you.

We love you, too.

You know, maybe we should call
our other children

and say good night to them, too.

Oh, I talked to them
while you were in the shower.

Just kidding.

Why don't we call them
and say good night.

- It'd be nice.
- Yeah.

(phone ringing)


Oh, hi.


Right, from church.


Uh, you know, I'm sorry for
calling on you in church,

but you really can't
sleep with my husband.

She hung up.

(phone ringing)


Hi, Luce.

Hi, hon. We just wanted
to say good night.


We love you.

We do, Luce.

Even after what I did today?


No matter what you do any day.

Oh, I love you, too.

Good night.

Okay, it has been
a really long day.

Let's... let's get some rest.

She's not sleepy.

Maybe she's better off
in her own room.

Yeah, maybe.

Go over to the neighbor's house

and ask her to play
some of that music again.

Well... well, it's
too quiet in here,

and she's gotten used

to sleeping with
all of that noise,

so just go over
there and ask her

to play whatever she was
playing again... please.

- Martin...
- Sandy...

Maybe we could...

Get to know each other.

But not so much that you
wouldn't want to marry me.

I, um, I better be going.


I'll talk to you
during the week.


- Good night.
- Good night.

Hang on. Coming.


Um, hi.

I'm Kevin Kinkirk.

I live next door with my wife.

I'm Jewel. A-A friend's
letting me stay here

while I work on something--

um, a song I'm recording
in L.A. this week.

Do you want to come in or...?


Okay. Well, it was very nice
to meet you, Kevin Kinkirk.

Here's the thing.

Would it be possible for you
to sing that song

you've been singing
the past few nights?

My wife was asking.

We can't get our daughter
to sleep.

She thought
maybe you could help.

Uh... ♪ It's gonna
be all right. ♪

That song?

- Yeah.
- Yeah?

- That's no problem.
- Thanks.
