7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 3, Episode 22 - There Goes the Bride: Part 2 - full transcript

Matt brings unamused Heather, who hoped he would propose again, back to church, where he exposes after some hesitation groom Mason's flaw, while desperately trying not to lose 'abandoned' Shana. Simon learns the kiss was a 'love test', which is rewarded with more, and Jordan encourages to just enjoy it without excessive worries. Jordan tells Lucy, who out of mere jealousy makes out with wedding guest Joe. Eric has a hard time accepting Julie's sudden announcement to marry Dr. Hank Hastings, but doubts soon shake that couple to be.

Previously on 7th Heaven.

Okay, what did I miss?


- Let's go to the church.
- When you say yes, you mean yes.

Well, Eric's there, and I want
to tell him that we're getting married.

Don't break my heart, Camden.

When I found out that Heather
wouldn't let me be a flower girl,

I put a hex on her wedding.

There will be no wedding.

- What's wrong?
- You can't marry Mason.


Doesn't Shelby look fabulous?

Yeah. But not as good as you.

So if there is any person present
who believes

that these two
should not be married--

Don't do it.

I'm sorry.



Two beautiful wives--

I'm so glad they made
polygamy legal in Glen Oak.

Matt, we're leaving you.

We only agreed to do this marriage

because we thought that you would
eventually choose one of us.

- So choose.
- I can't choose.

I love both of you.

- Choose!
- Choose!

Want a doughnut?

I said, do you want a doughnut?

I don't know about you,
but I'm starved.

Hey, what are you thinking about?


Did our son really do this?

Did Matt really break up
Heather's wedding?

He did it. Boy, did he do it.


Poor Shana.

Yeah, talk about your bad dates.

You know, after we get everything
straightened out here,

I'll go check on her.

I tried to send everyone home,

they all wanna stick around
and see what happens next.

No. No one is going anywhere.

Heather will come to her senses,

and she'll be back.

And we'll get married
just like we planned.

Eric, you have to do something.
Please. We have to find Heather.

I'll go make some calls.
They couldn't have gotten that far.

How far can you go
in a dress and a Camaro?

That's right.

Annie, you don't suppose Matt and
Heather ran off to get married, do you?

No. No.

Who's that?

It's a friend of Mason's family.

She does look friendly.

- Excuse me, okay?
- Yeah, okay.

Maybe a little too friendly.

Unbelievable. I had no idea
the tooth fairy had all this power.

You're nuts if you think
your stupid hex

is the reason
Matt ran off with Heather.


I've been looking all over for you.

We need to talk.

I know what you wanna talk about.

I kissed your cousin.
Well, actually, she kissed me.

I know about the kiss.

- You do?
- It was sort of a relationship test.

- You knew?
- You see, she kisses you,

and then depending on how long it
takes you to tell me about the kiss,

it either shows we have
a good relationship or a bad one.

I'm sorry.

I should have never let Cindy
talk me into something so stupid.

It was a test?

Great, shift change. They are cleaned
and diapered. Good luck.

What if Matt and Heather
ran off to get married?

He could do that, and of course,
she's already dressed for it.

This day actually could get worse,
couldn't it?

We better stop Matt
before he does something stupid.

Maybe Sergeant Michaels can help.

Good idea.
I better get back to Donna.

You know,
not to be totally selfish here,

but am I correct in assuming
that until we find Matt

and straighten out this whole mess,
we're not having our date?

What are you doing here?

You have to leave now
before Lucy sees you.

I'm through with hiding and lying.

What's going on?

I'm sorry. I didn't want you to find out
about us like this.

You and Mary are an "us"?

I'm sorry, Luce.

You and Jordan together? Dating?

We never wanted to hurt you.

It's a little late for that.

You're my sister.

How could you?

I think you've done enough.

I should call
and let everyone know we're okay.

I knew that last night
when you kissed me

that I couldn't marry Mason,

but I didn't know what to do.

But then you came
into the church doors,

swooped in and whisked me away.

I really should make that phone call.

The sooner we put
this whole thing behind us,

the sooner we can start
our life together.

- Hello.
- Dad, it's me.

- Matt.
- You must have a million questions,

but right now, all I can tell you
is that I had to stop the wedding,

you're gonna have to trust me
that I did the right thing.

- Are you and Heather married?
- No!

Are you planning on getting married?

What would make you think that?

Did you see The Graduate?

Dad, they didn't get married
in that movie.

We don't know that. How could you?

We're heading back to the church,
I'll explain everything,

but first, I have to talk to Heather.
I've gotta go.

- Hello?
- Shana, it's Matt.

Please don't hang up.
Let me explain.

You don't have to explain.
I understand.

I'm not mad at you.

- You're not?
- No. I'm not mad at you.

Why would I be mad at you?

All you did was invite me
to your ex-girlfriend's wedding,

then stand me up, break up the
ceremony, and run off with the bride.

I'm not mad at you. I hate you.

I wish you ill. I despise you.

I have only feelings
of malice towards you,

but I'm not mad at you.

I can explain.

No need to explain. Just drop dead.

- Did you hear from Matt?
- Yeah.

He and Heather are on their way
back to the church.

She must have come to her senses.
I'll go tell Donna.

Did Heather come to her senses?

- Julie, what are you doing here?
- Is everything okay?

Everything's great.
I'm sorry just to barge in.

I hope we're not
interrupting the wedding.

Don't worry.
Matt already took care of that.


- We need to talk.
- I know we need to talk,

but now really isn't the best time.

- Maybe we could--
- I'm getting married.

- To whom?
- Hank. Dr. Hastings.

He's laughing.
Why is he doing that?


- Eric.
- I'm sorry.

I was just thinking,

I can't wait for Dr. Hastings
to meet our dear old dad.

The colonel's gonna love this.
Fresh meat.

Welcome to the family.

And good luck.

I can't believe how calm
your brother was.

That wasn't calm, that was shock.

I don't care why,
I'm just glad things went well.

Don't you find it disturbing
that we announce our engagement

at a defunct wedding?

I mean, that's not a sign,
that's an albatross.

- Good. You're still here.
- Hey.

Hi. I was wondering. Could you round
up the kids and take them home?

Eric and I wanna wait here with Donna
and Mason for Matt and Heather.

Sure, no problem.

You're a lifesaver.

The twins are in Eric's office,
and I'll call you at home.

- All right.
- Okay. Thank you.

- Okay.
- Thank you.

It was silly for me
to test our relationship.

Can we kiss and make up?


What was that?

Something Cindy told me about.
Like it?

A relationship is like...

Like being in school.

You enrol, and then in time,

after years and years
and years of study,

after mastering all the skills you need,
you graduate

or, if you will, get married.

This is why marriage
should never be entered into lightly.

What are you doing?

I'm having a talk with the boys.

- They don't know how to listen.
- Does anyone?


People are asking about you.
When are you coming out?

Never. Well, the last time I went
out there, my son broke up a wedding,

and my sister announced
that she was getting married

to a man she's only known
six months.

A man who turns out
to be a human boomerang

because no matter how hard
I throw him away from me, he:

He lands right back on my door.

See. They feel my pain.

Well, not for long.
Julie's coming to take them home.

With Hank?

If you don't change your attitude
we may never have a date again

if you know what I mean,
and I think you know what I mean.

Where are we going?

Back to the church.

Pull the car over. Pull it over now!


Why are we going
back to the church?

Please tell me that you didn't
just break up my wedding

so we could go to the movies?

I want to marry you.
I thought you wanted to marry me.

- I'm not talking to you.
- That's okay. You don't have to talk.

My new boyfriend, Jordan,
is downstairs.

And my new boyfriend, Jordan, and I

are gonna hang out
and watch some TV.


- Hello?
- Hi, Joe? Can you come over?

- You okay?
- I may never be okay again.

- Have you ever been French kissed?
- Don't you wanna talk

to your dad or your brother?

No. Answer the question.

- How old are you?
- I just turned 13.

that's when it happened to me.

So, what's the problem?

Well, Deena and I...

And I'm not even sure I enjoyed it.

I mean, Deena took me
completely by surprise,

the whole time all I could think
was that I was doing it wrong

or that my breath smelled

or she would tell her cousin
that I was a lousy kisser,

not that her cousin wouldn't know.

Never mind.

Do you like Deena?

- Very much.
- Then my advice to you is simple.

Think less, kiss more.


Hey, one billion teenagers
can't be wrong.

So, when are Eric and Annie
coming home?

I don't know, why?

I just want to take my fiancée
out to celebrate.

I don't feel like celebrating.

- Did you talk to Lucy?
- Yeah.

- Is everything okay?
- Everything is great.

Hey, Luce.


What's up? I ran as fast as I could.

Come on.

It's Joe. My boyfriend.


Great, we can double.

What's going on?

So, Deena, do you think your mom
will let you come over after dinner?


Oh, I don't know. I thought
we'd just hang out in my room.

Okay, see you then.


- Ever thought of knocking?
- No.

- What do you want?
- Money.

What do you want money for?

I figure the only way
to undo my hex on Heather

is to bribe the tooth fairy.

Bribery, hexing? What,
is your tooth fairy in the mob?

Quit your yakking
and hand over the moola.

I'm not giving you any money.

I guess I'll just have to tell aunt Julie

that Deena's coming over
to hang out in your room.

Okay, you win.

Consider this a down payment.

Pleasure doing business with you.

What's going on here?

I think the two of you
better go home.


We need to talk.

I think I know why you're acting
the way you are,

and I want you to know it's okay.

I don't need to talk.

Stop telling me what I need
or don't need, okay?


If this is what it's gonna be like
when we get married,

maybe we should just
call the whole thing off.

I'm sorry, did we just
go from, "we need to talk,"

to "maybe we shouldn't
get married"?

I love you,

and I want to spend
the rest of my life with you.

Well, that's great for you,
but I don't know how I feel anymore.

I'm sorry, it's just how it is.

Maybe I should go.

Well, maybe you should.

- Bye.
- See you.

Julie's been watching the kids
for a while. You think she's okay?

- She has help.
- The ever dependable Dr. Hastings.

Right now, spending time
with the kids,

especially the twins,
is just what Julie needs.

- Matt.
- Thank god.

Are you okay?

Go ahead, do it,
I know I have it coming.

You're not worth it.

Do you want to punch me?

No, but I may make you eat
your weight in cold Chicken Kiev.

What's going on? Heather...

Are we getting married?

Everyone just leave me alone.
Just leave me alone.


Stay away from us, Camden.

You know, some kind of explanation
might be nice right about now.

- Look, I can't. I have to go.
- What? Where are you going?

I don't have time. If I don't get to
Shana's now, I might lose her forever.

What about Heather?

You remember her,
nice girl in the wedding dress?

The one thing I know
for sure and without a doubt

is that I love Shana,
and I can't lose her.

Well, that clears everything up.


If Matt's in love with Shana,

then he didn't break up Heather's
wedding because he loves her.

Then why'd he do it?

Good question.
I wish I knew what the answer was.

Matt. I'm glad you came over.

- You're happy to see me?
- Don't move.

I don't know about you,
but I feel better.

Come in.

I need to talk to you if that's all right.

I need to tell someone
the truth about Mason.

So, what do you wanna do?

We can go downstairs
and watch TV.

We can stay up here
and build a model airplane.

That's not really what I had in mind.

Are you hungry?

I already ate.

We can kiss.


You don't think I'm a bad kisser?

I mean, if you do,
you have to give me another chance

because you kind of
took me by surprise

and, well, that's a new kiss for me.

You're a great kisser, Simon.

So, then my aunt broke us up
and sent Jordan and Joe home.

Joe called me and told me
about going over to your house.

He was very excited.
He thinks you like him.

Oh, I better call him.

Why'd you call me?

Because I've had a rough day,

and I sure could use
a best friend right about now.

So could I. Do you know
where I can find one?

Because my last best friend's
been kind of a disappointment.

See, I like this guy,
the guy liked her.

She said, "Don't worry, I'll give you a
makeover, and I'll fix you up with him."

She did, then she stole him back.

Today you made me feel lonelier
than I have ever felt before.

Because this time, not only
did I not have a date or a boyfriend,

but I also didn't have a best friend.

You have to let me explain.

You don't even know
why I'm so mad at you, do you?

It's not because
you ran off with Heather

and humiliated
and embarrassed me.

I mean, humiliation
and embarrassment,

that I could eventually forgive,

but today you took
something away from me

that I'll never be able to get back.

No. You see, I've been hurt
by men my whole life.

My father, my brother,
my other boyfriends.

So, it was a pretty big deal
that I allowed myself

to feel so protected
and safe with you.

That I let down my defences
and allowed myself to care about you

like I've never been able
to do before.

So, for the first time in a long time,
I allowed myself to be vulnerable

and trusted that a man
wouldn't hurt me.

You don't know how sorry I am.

I'm sure you are.

I told you not to break my heart,
but you did it anyway.

- Please, just--
- Just go home, Matt.

It's over.

It's really over.



What are you doing here?

- Are the kids okay?
- They're fine.

But we need to talk.

Julie told me
she didn't wanna get married.

So, I've been walking all over
Glen Oak trying to figure this thing out.

What's the key?
What do I need to say?

What does she need to hear?

And then it hit me.
She needs to hear you.

- What do you mean?
- She needs to hear

that you approve
of our engagement.

Has it occurred to you that maybe
she's just not ready for marriage?

No, she thinks you don't think
she's ready. It's not the same thing.

Look, I can understand
how you feel, but--

You can never see your wife again.

- Excuse me?
- What if you could never see

the one woman in this world
that you love above all else?

Because that's how I feel
about Julie.

And if you don't help me,
I'm never gonna see her again.

I'm still not sure
I should get involved.

Julie wants to make
her own decisions, live her own life.

If you knew the whole story,
you'd think differently.

The whole story?

Donna, we need to speak to Heather
right away.

Oh, Annie, it's no use.
She refuses to talk to anybody.

She has to talk to me.

Please, I just want to be left alone.
Just leave me alone.

I think you need to hear
what this young lady has to say.

Please, you need to know this.

It's about Mason.

Please, Heather...

Listen to what she...

I'm sorry to interrupt,
but can I borrow my wife?

You wouldn't believe
the story that I just heard.

Look, I would love to hear
all about it,

but right now I need to take care
of something. It's my sister.

Can you stay here
with Heather and Donna?

I'll be fine. Go.

Hi, this is Shana,
leave me a message at the beep.

It's Matt.

Look, I know you want me
to leave you alone and I will,

but I need to tell you
what happened today.

You were right, I do love Heather.

I love her like a sister,

and that's why I couldn't let her
make the biggest mistake of her life.

Mason's no good. I tried to tell her,
but she wouldn't listen to me.

So, when I showed up at the church,
and I saw her standing there...

The next thing I knew, I was yelling
her name and running out the door.

I'm just so sorry I hurt you.

Your machine's probably
gonna cut me off, but before it does,

there's one more thing
I need to tell you.

I love you.

I just thought you should know.

Funny, it's...

...the first time I've ever told you that.

And I guess it's also the last.

Unless you change your mind.

I'll be home later,
I gotta get my mom at church.

Please change your mind.

- I'm ready to go home now.
- Great.

Matt told me everything.

Honey, you can't believe
what he says.

He's still in love with you.

He'd say anything to break us up.

What about your girlfriend Suzy?

Can I believe what she says?

I knew something
wasn't right between us.

I just couldn't admit it.

Well, congratulations.

Now that you've pushed me
out of the picture,

- you can just move in.
- I wasn't the one that pushed you.

You pushed yourself.

I wasn't the one that had a girlfriend
on the side, that was you.

I wasn't the one who broke
Heather's heart, that was you.

I ruined your wedding,
but the day you decided to cheat,

you ruined the relationship. You
should be man enough to admit it.

I'm sorry.

I'm not.

Thanks for ruining my wedding.


Shana's a very lucky woman.

Too bad she doesn't feel that way.

Is everything all right with Shana?

Everything's fine.

I'm very proud of you.

Is everything okay
with you and Shana?

I think we broke up.

Boy, kissing sure does
make you thirsty.

Do you want to go
back up to my room?

- How are the kids?
- Quiet.

That's usually when
they do the most damage.

Let me guess, Hank called you?

So, are you happy we broke up?


Besides, this isn't about my happiness,
it's about your happiness.

Yes, and I have to be happy
because I'm an alcoholic.

If I'm not happy, I'll drink,
I'll completely fall apart.

I don't think you'll fall apart,

but I suspect you think
you'll fall apart.

And I also suspect that that's why
you broke up with Dr. Hastings.

And I admit there was a time when
I thought you would fall apart, too.

But I'd be blind if I didn't see a
completely different picture of you now

than I did even a few months ago.

And what do you see now?

I see a woman who's
a lot stronger than she knows.

Three years ago, you lost your tenure
as a principal in New York,

you lost your savings,
you lost your friends,

you lost your dignity,
your self-respect.

You hit rock bottom face first.

But you survived.

And nothing you ever do
is going to be as hard

as what you've done
to get sober and stay sober.

I'm not sure about that.

Did Hank tell you everything?

Yeah, he did.

I think that's for you.

See, he's already coming in
like family.

Hey, what are you doing?

I'm writing a note to the tooth fairy.

And what's the cash for?

Sometimes it takes more than
a nice note to get the message across.

What message is that?

When Heather didn't make me
the flower girl for her wedding,

I got really mad,
put a quarter under my pillow,

and wished that she
wouldn't have a wedding.

I think you know
what happened next.

Yeah, but I also know
the tooth fairy pretty well,

and cancelling weddings
doesn't sound like something she'd do.

Are you sure she took the quarter?

Because if she didn't,
then everything that happened today

had nothing to do with you.

I'm sorry,

but I told you if I had to choose
between my sister and you,

I'm gonna choose my sister.

I understand. We're not going out
anymore, but I still care about Lucy,

and I would never do
anything to hurt her.

Well, neither would I.

We could medal in bad timing.

Yeah, seems like our paths
are always crossing at the wrong time.

- I'll see you around?
- Not if I see you first.

- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.

I'm really sorry.

I think I've got more
to be sorry about.

I have no claims on Jordan.
I was just jealous.

Okay, you're right, you've got more
to be sorry about than me.

- Truce?
- Truce.

- I'm glad that's over with.
- Me, too.

But I really screwed things up
with Shelby.

Maybe I can help you with that.

You'd do that?

Yes, yes.

- So?
- It's all over.

- Heather and Mason?
- Very over.

Apparently Mason
had a girlfriend on the side.

I'm very proud of you.

Doing what you did today took guts.

Don't ever do it again.

Eric, Annie, come here. Everybody!

Ruthie, Simon, Mary, Lucy
come on down.

We have an announcement.

Julie and I are gonna get married,
and we don't wanna wait.

So, we're gonna go to a 24-hour
wedding chapel in the next county.

But what about
the colonel and Ruth?

They won't get back from the cruise
for three months.

- I can't wait three months.
- Okay.

- Congratulations.
- Congratulations.

We can't let your sister get married
at a 24-hour wedding chapel.

We can and we should.

Because if I marry them,
I'll be risking my life.

You remember my father,
the colonel?

Big scary guy with access to guns.

All right, all right.

Weren't we supposed to have
a date tonight?

Oh, yeah.

Too tired?

Oh, yeah.

Well, same time next weekend?

- Oh, yeah.
- Yeah? Yeah?

Where's Simon?

Follow me.

We'll be right back.

When did you guys get home?

What's going on?

Mary begged me to come.

You're just in time.
I was just about to apologise.

What happened at the church
was as much my fault as it was Lucy's.

More my fault. Shelby, Joe,

can't we just go back
to all being friends again?

You know, the three musketeers.



I don't wanna be friends.

I want to date Lucy.



You're right.

I am a jerk.

One for all, all for one?

It was nice of your mom

to let you come to the church
for aunt Julie's wedding.

Yeah, but when I get home,
I'm grounded for a month.

I know. I'm not allowed to have any
girls in my room for the rest of my life.

Plus, dad says he wants
to have another talk with me.

He says up until now,

all of the talks we've had
have been hypothetical.

Now, he says
I'm getting into the more practical.

I'll be right back.

I got your message.

I love you, too.

- How'd you know I was here?
- Your mom told me.

- I'm so sorry. I--
- It's okay.

- A friend told me everything.
- A friend?

- Hi.
- Hi.

I think we can all be friends.

I'd like us to all be friends.

I'd like that, too.

Thank you.

We're gathered here today

to join Julie and Hank

in wedded harmony and bliss.

They stand before us,
committed and deeply in love,

and it is this love
that we celebrate today.

So, before we begin,
if there's anyone present

who believes that these two
should not be married,

speak now,
or forever hold your peace.

Very funny.

All right, here we go.

Do you, Hank...

You know,
it was this time last year

that I told you there were
going to be two new Camdens.

Not again?

I am not pregnant.

If I were, the zero-population-control
people would come and take us away.

So, instead of two new Camdens,

there's gonna be one new Hastings.

I know. Julie told me.

Well, Hank told me.

You called him Hank.


Well, Julie told you,
and Hank told me,

but I think the big question is

who's gonna tell the colonel?

Outstanding idea.

Of course, he won't be able to do it
until he learns to talk.

I can wait.
