7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 7, Episode 18 - We Do - full transcript

A big storm interferes with Lucy & Kevin's wedding plans. Kevin's family and many of the guests have trouble getting to the church.

Uh, and then I pronounce you
husband and wife.

Then I tell
you, Kevin,

that you may kiss the bride.

And you may.

And then, as I present you
to the church, everyone stands,

and you take his arm, Lucy,
and then I nod to Ruthie,

and she returns
your flowers

to you, and then Lucy and Kevin

will proceed
back down the aisle,

and this time Ruthie

and Simon follow you,

hopefully along
with Matt and Mary.

Oh, and, uh,
Kevin's sister,

uh, Patty Mary,
and your brother Ben.

Sounds good to me.

What if the storm
keeps Matt and Mary and your mom

and Patty Mary and Ben
from getting here?

The airport will
open up tomorrow.

It has to.
And if it doesn't?

Yeah, what if
it's just us?

What if none
of his family gets here?

As of tomorrow, my
family is Lucy and me.

I feel like the luckiest woman
in the entire world.

Yes, you are.

I think you're both...

very lucky
to have found each other.

It is so good

to see you back
in your church again.

So, are we really
gonna do this?

I'm gonna be Mrs. Kevin Kinkirk?

Are you still having
doubts about me?

Even now?

Promise me you'll be here.

Promise me that you won't
leave me standing at the altar.

Promise me that nothing
will keep you from marrying me.

That neither rain
nor snow nor heat

nor... gloom of night will keep
you from your appointed rounds.

I promise.

Am I too late?

T-Too late?

Uh... n-n...
for the wedding, no.

We just finished the rehearsal.

The Colonel sent me--
they're not gonna make it.

I'm here to help
in any way I can.

I'm sorry you had
to drive all the way

from... wherever you drove,

but I-I-I don't
think there's anything
you can do, Gabrielle.

You're welcome
to come to the wedding...

of course.

Well, not unless I can make
some sort of a contribution.

- I insist on helping.
- Well,

r-really, we're happy
to have you, Gabrielle.

Uh, but, I don't know,
aside from showing up

tomorrow night at 7:30
and having a good time,

there's nothing you can do.

I'll call the Colonel

and let him know.

Oh, I hope that
wasn't a bad omen.

I hope that wasn't
a bad omen.

What was that?

I'm not sure, but I hope
that wasn't a bad omen.

Oh, thank God.

I've got to get
to the hospital
to deliver a baby.

Some guy ran me
off the road.

There are accidents
all over the city,

but we've got a break in
the rain for a few minutes.

Come on, I'll
get you some help.
Oh, boy.

Aren't you...?
And you're...

Roxanne, Kevin's partner.
Of course!

I'm Hank.

I'm married
to Eric's sister, Julie.

Right. We met at the house,

Come on, I'll get you
to the hospital.

Thank you.

Kevin, it's me.

we have to talk.

I'm awake;
I heard her.




Hi yourself.

Can't wait until
tomorrow night?

I'm scared.

It's going to be fine.

I love you.

What if no one makes it?

Are you talking
about the wedding?

Yes. What did you think
I was talking about?

The wedding night.

You think I'm scared of... you?

No. I can't wait, believe me.

Did she say
anything to you?


You think she'll
call it off?

Then what are they
doing in there?

What did you think,

I was going to be wearing my
pajamas and a smoking jacket?

I didn't know you
were gonna wake me up

in the middle of the night.

Put something on,
and I'll step out into the hall.

What are you doing here?

We might ask you
the same thing.

I wanted to talk to Kevin
about whether or not

we should go through
with the wedding

considering no one can get here
and it's still storming.

I didn't realize everyone
was waiting for me.

They're not--
they're going to bed.

Without knowing whether or not
you're calling off the wedding?

I don't think so.

We're not calling off
the wedding.

But even if the
airport opens,

it's been closed
for over 24 hours.

The flights are
gonna be backed up.

Do you mind?

As much as I want my mom and Ben

and Patty Mary
to be at my wedding,

if they're not there,
I'll be okay.

I want my grandparents

and Matt and Mary to be there.

It's just that...

I want everything to be perfect,

and yet, I know
life's not perfect.

No, it's not.

But parts of it

are very, very good.

Look, I don't want to hurt
anybody's feelings, but...

I'll go upstairs with
Ruthie and-and Lucy.

Come on.

I don't think they'll

call the wedding off.

No, once these things
are in motion,

they're pretty difficult
to stop.

But I have had

a few couples back out

at the very last minute.
If they do
call it off,

then your first official act
in the church will be

to announce that... your
daughter's wedding is cancelled.

That wouldn't be good.


Is it time to get up?

Is it morning?

Is Lucy getting married?

It's the middle of the night.
Go back to bed.

Uh, come on.

All right.

Good night.

Good night.
Good night.

Good night.

When I get married,
I'm going to elope.

No, you're not.
I want to be there.

Okay, you and Dad can be
the two witnesses when I elope.

Marriage is about family.

Don't you want your family,
your entire family, to be there?

They would still be my family

whether or not
they're at my wedding.

You're getting married in your
father's church by your father,

and all your brothers
and sisters will be there.

Sorry. I'm not sure
that's in the cards for me.

I don't even think
it's in the cards for Lucy.

I don't think
anyone's gonna get here.


Like my saying it is
gonna keep them from coming?

There's a storm,
the airport is closed.

We have to deal with reality.

If they want
everyone to be here,

they're going to have to delay
or even cancel the wedding.

And if they cancel it,

Dad's gonna see it
as some kind of sign

that he's not supposed
to be back at that church.

Hey, enough, Doomsayer.

Could you think pleasant
thoughts please?

I was just thinking
that when I do get married,

I hope it's Peter Petrowski.

So, you have a little crush
on Peter?


I didn't know you liked him
that much...

you know, in that way.

I-I-I thought you were
just friends?

No, I think I'm in love.


You know, I could have waited
a day or two

till after Lucy's wedding
to hear that.

But on the other hand,
I'm glad you told me.

I like Peter.

What do you like
about him?


Especially when he calls me
honey or sweetheart.

It's so cool.





Even if they call off
the wedding,

you have to get back to church.

You belong there
and I need you to be there.


If you don't go back,

I'm afraid I'm going
to lose my faith in God.

I'm going back, son.

You promise,
even if there's no wedding?

I promise.

What are you doing here?

I called the station and
the watch captain told me

where I could find you.

What happened to you?
Uh, it's been
a terrible night.

I'm afraid it's about
to get much worse.

Kevin's brother, Ben, called.

He and Mrs. Kinkirk, they
got a flight into Vegas,

but now they're stuck.

And they couldn't
get a rental car

because there aren't
any rental cars left,

so they were going to fly
into a smaller airport tomorrow,

but now they don't want to
chance missing the wedding.

You're going to pick them up?

I was thinking maybe
we could go pick them up.

I'm just getting off
a 12-hour shift.

I understand.

And you're not driving

to Vegas, okay?

The roads are terrible.

I have to.

You don't have to.

Look, even if
we left now...

Good night.

Good night.

Good night.

♪I'm getting married in the morning.♪

♪Ding-dong, the bells are gonna chime.♪


♪So get me to the church on time.♪

♪ ♪





Are you okay?

Oh, yeah, I'm fine.

Uh, but the airport's
still closed

because of flooding.

However, some of the
surrounding airports,

about an hour away,
have opened so, uh...

there's still hope.


I have hope.

Is there anything else?

No, nothing else.

Thank you for marrying us.

Thank you for coming
back to the church.

We've all missed you.

I'm going to be fine.

I really love Kevin,
and he's a good man.

Still, you know you
don't have to do this.

I'm doing this.

But if you're doing this just
to get me back to the church,

I-I-I promise, I'll...

I'm doing this because
I love Kevin.



Ride 'em, cowboy.

Shouldn't you guys
be dressed by now?

I'm staying in sweats
until I put on my tux.

Yeah, I'm doing
the same thing.

Have you heard
from Ben or your mom?

No, but I know Ben,
and if it takes

planes, trains and automobiles
to get them here,

they'll get here.

And if they don't?

Hey, if for any reason

Ben doesn't show up,

would you be my best man?


After all,
we become brothers today.

What if Matt gets here
and Ben doesn't?

I hardly know Matt.

Would you do it
if Ben doesn't make it?

Well, absolutely.

But as honored
as that makes me feel,

I still hope Ben
makes it on time.

You're going to get sick, too,
if you keep eating like that.

You were just standing there
listening to me puke?

You look terrible.

Oh, God, you heard me.

That's okay.

Look, I think we need
to find you a hospital.

We have to get
to that wedding.

If I'm not at Kevin
and Lucy's wedding, I'm dead.

I can't believe you were just
standing there listening. Geez.

I really think we need to
get you to a hospital.

There's got to be one
around here somewhere.

I'm not going
to a hospital.

We really got to get her
to a hospital.

We'll drop you off.

What? We're never going
to get to this wedding

with her stopping at
every other gas station.

It's my car.

So, you should stay with us.

Mrs. Kinkirk,

I apologize in
advance for anything

that I might do to Ben.

Get out of the car.


'Cause I'm going to kill you.

You're a man of God.
You can't kill me.

Well, you never heard of the
Crusades or the Inquisition?

You're not Catholic.


I'll go check
on Roxanne.

I will check on Roxanne.

Can't we just leave them here?

No, we can't.
Why not?

Because they came

all the way to Vegas
to pick us up,

and she's a police officer.

She'd have us arrested.

Oh, all right.

Just tell me you're coming
no matter who you are.


I'm at the hospital.

I got a difficult delivery
going here,

and, well...
No one can get in.

No, you have to come,
and you have to bring my sister

and my niece and my nephew.

How's three out of four?

At the wedding?

Missing the wedding.

We can't bring Eric and the
baby out in this weather.

They're just getting over
the flu.

But I promise,
Julie will get there.

And you?

I'm trying.

I can't do a cesarean
just 'cause

I want to see Lucy and Kevin
get married.

Has Julie heard
from the Colonel and Ruth?

Uh, I've been trying
to reach them.

I need to talk to them.

They're hiding from you.

They said they weren't sure

you and Annie liked
the wedding gift.

What wedding gift?

Something they call a Gabrielle.

If you talk to them,

tell them we returned her...
I think.


I'm sorry.

I was just thinking.

I was wishing that my dad
and Ginger could get here.

But I was just missing my mom.

It's okay,

because she's with us.

She's a part of us always.

And I need you
to be strong, Mom,

because, well,

I'm getting married.

I'm really getting married.

I know. I know, Luce.

I'm so happy for you.

This is Grandma's locket.

You gave it to me
for my 13th birthday, remember?

Of course.

Is this going to be
your "something old"?


And my dress
is my "something new."

I just need "something borrowed"

and my garter
is "something blue."

Could I borrow some earrings?

Any earrings you want.

You know of course if
you change your mind about
wearing my wedding dress...

No, no, no. I know you want
to wear your own wedding dress.


thanks for wearing
my mother's locket.

Do you think I'm crazy for
going ahead with the wedding

even though it looks as if
no one's going to get here?

It doesn't make me
look desperate, does it?

No. It doesn't make you
look desperate.

It was a long shot anyway,

you know, to get everyone here
with such short notice.

I don't think my dad and
Ginger are going to get here,

and we know that the
Colonel and Ruth and George

aren't going to get here.

But maybe Matt and Sarah?

They were flying
from New York, too,

and the flights are stacking up.

Have you heard from Mary?

No, not yet,
but she could get here.

After all, she does have
connections with the airlines.

Maybe Ben will get here
with Kevin's mom.

Yeah, maybe.
You don't really want me

to put this off, do you?

I don't want to give Dad the
option of not going back either.

Oh, God.

If this day isn't good for you,

it is your wedding.

This is the right day for me.

Lucy, Grandma gave this
to me when I turned 13.

I want you to have it.

Camden residence.


Mary! Please tell me
you can make it.

I've got a rental car,
and I'm still hours away,

but we should make it.


I'm gonna bring someone with me,
if it's okay.

Well, of course it's okay
if you bring someone with you.

You-You want to tell me
who it is?

Why don't we just let that
be a surprise.

Bye, Mom.


Where's Kevin?

Oh, I got him out of the house,
just like you asked.

No, everything's fine.

You said you wanted him
out of the house,

so I got him out of the house.

Well, Mom's waiting in the car.

We're headed down to the church.

I'll see you there.

With Kevin.

With Kevin.

Just curious.

How'd you get Kevin
out of the house?

I led him to believe

we were about to have
a conversation about sex.

Nice to see
you're back on your game.


So, uh, who do you think
Mary's bringing?

I don't know.

But Mom and I decided
we're not gonna worry about it.

How very Zen of you.

Mm, if it's Jack, I'm not sure
Mom's gonna be so Zen.

I keep hoping to hear
Matt's on his way.
I hope so, too,

but if the Colonel
couldn't get here,

I'm not counting on Matt
and Sarah getting here.

I mean, it'd be nice,
even wonderful, but...

Yeah, well,

no expectations,
no disappointments.

Well, where are you exactly?

Grandpa's hitching a ride.



Grandpa said
not to worry,

he found someone that'll
take him to Glenoak,

and they should get
here just in time.

Is he with Ginger?

Ginger didn't want to go.

She thought
it was too dangerous.


♪ Come ♪

♪ Walk with me... ♪

It was mighty nice
of the Colonel

to send you to pick us up.

And I'm sorry about Ginger.

She's not the first person
to refuse a ride with me.

'Course, if I had
a man like you,

I don't think that I'd be
sending him out alone

with a woman like me.

♪ There's no place ♪

I told you before,

I'm in love with my wife.

♪ In your arms, by the sea... ♪

I really think at this point
we should forget the wedding

and just get you
to a hospital.

No, I have to get
to that wedding.

I have to get there.

You don't have to.

And you're sick.

And I'm responsible.

You're not responsible--
you didn't make me sick.

If I don't get there,
Kevin is going to kill me,

so I won't just be sick,
I'll be dead.

Could we please?

I can't believe
I drove all night

to pick you up from Vegas,

and you're acting like
we're inconveniencing you.

We could've
walked there

faster than this!

I just want to hit you
so bad I can't tell you!

If we can go after you
hit me, hit me! Go ahead!

No one is hitting anyone.

Stop it!

Stop it!

Ben! Chandler!

He started it!

What are you, 12?!

Stop or I'll shoot!

You have a gun?

Yeah, I have a gun.

On you?

Well, no.

If it were Ben and Kevin,
I'd just leave 'em.

Yeah, well, if I was
feeling better, I'd join 'em.

And what is that
supposed to mean?

It means that Ben
has been nothing

but rude and inconsiderate
since he got in the car.

He's exhausted-- we've
both been up over 72 hours,

and he'd been in a fire

the night
before we left.

So you're making
excuses for him?

Hey, do you want a piece of me?

I'm a cop.

And I'm the mother of two boys--
I can beat you up.

Now you're dreaming.

I don't think so.

You know what,
I am sick, okay.

I am very,
very sick.

Otherwise, I would fight you
to the death.

Excuse me, what's going on here?

You know what?

What the heck?

It's me and you, Chandler,
against the Kinkirks.

Hold on,
don't you touch my mother.

Your mother's nuts.

Your girlfriend is...
your girlfriend is...

This isn't a battle of wits.

Let's go for it.

Yeah, I do look grown-up,
don't I?

Yeah, you do.

You look like a young woman.

A... a beautiful young woman.

Not to worry.

Even if I do marry
Peter Petrowski,

I'm not getting married
until I'm 30.

You better save that for Lucy--
I have a feeling

this is gonna be
a very weepy wedding.

It's going to be
a very happy wedding.

We'll see.

Ah, okay.

Finally, some children

who don't look
like they're all grown up.

You're not gonna be ready
for these for years.

I know that, Dad.

Have you heard from
anyone in your family?

Yes, my sister
called back.

The bad news is,
she can't make it.

The good news is, she met
a guy at the airport.

I met Lucy at the
airport in Buffalo.

This guy may turn out

to be the love of
Patty Mary's life.

And Ben?

I haven't heard
a word from him.

But, he'll
probably turn up

within the next
day or two.

You're still
my best man.

I have the ring.

Okay, I've got
the best man,

the maid of honor,

the ring bearers,

the groom.

And I'm the minister.

We're set to go.

Mary and the
mystery man.

Matt and Sarah.

Ben and my mother.

Just open the door.




Honey, you couldn't look
prettier if you were the bride.


Weddings are tough,
aren't they, Reverend?

Let's... let's go.



I don't know if I can
go through with this.

I'm having second thoughts.

I should finish college first.

I should work for a while.

I should have some money
in the bank of my own.

I should...

I should know Kevin better.

I-I should know me better.

What if this
is the wrong thing to do?

The scary thing is,
she's not crying.

Not a tear.

She says she just
doesn't know

if she's doing
the right thing.

Well, maybe she's got a point.

Well, of course
she has a point, but...

I know my daughter,
and I'm telling you

this is just a case
of cold feet.

Very cold feet.

You know, if
she doesn't

go through with
this wedding,

she's not gonna be
happy with herself

tomorrow, the next day,
the next month, the next year.

She loves Kevin.

She wants to be married to him.

Talk to her.

What's going on?

Oh, did Ben and
Mrs. Kinkirk make it?

No, but Kevin says we
don't have to wait for them.

No sign of Matt or Mary
or Grandpa or the bad omen.

Oh, I forgot
about Gabrielle.

No, there
are no bad omens,

just nervous brides.

What does that mean?

What does what mean?


Oh, I'm so happy you made it.


This is wonderful.

Hi, Mom.

Hey, Simon.

It's great to see you.

Hey, you guys.

I hope you didn't come
all this way

for nothing--
we've got a nervous bride.

It'll be fine.

It has to be.


Hey, what are you
so nervous about?

I don't know.

I just don't know,
I... I don't know anything.



Where's your date?

Oh, yeah, the mystery man.

Hey, you.

You looking for me?


You made it.

I love you.


We missed you.

I've missed you, too.

I got him the last seat
on the flight I was on.

So, Sarah isn't gonna make it?

No, but from what
I was hearing down the hall,

maybe she's not gonna
be missing anything.

Come on, we'll talk.

Then, we'll
see you upstairs.


gonna be fine.

Do what your doctor
tells you.

Go, be gone.

Away, shoo, come on.

So my little sister's
getting married?

How are we going
to explain this?

Well, I guess
we'll have to go

with the truth,
otherwise the cop

and the preacher
will rat us out.


We made it.


we made it.

Well, we got into a fight.

A fight with...?

With, um, the Hampton boy--

what's his name--
and his girlfriend.

You got into a fight
with Chandler and Roxanne?


Don't worry, we won.
We're here.

Hey, they made it.

Simon will be
my best man.

Okay, but I still get
to stand up front, right?

I guess.

Let him stand up front.

He's your brother.

I can't believe I'm going
to a wedding like this.

At least we won
the fight.

Ah, I can't believe
we beat them up.

I never get to beat anybody up.

I'm a minister.

Are you going
to be okay?

Or should I bring
a bucket in?
I'm fine.


Roxanne. Chandler.

Is everything okay?

You both look
like heck.

Roxanne looks worse
than he does.

Are you running a fever?
Coming down with the flu?

Both our children are
at home with the flu.

Your children
have the flu?


So last night when I stopped
to help you, you...

You carrier!

You gave me the flu!

It's been a long day.

We'll see you inside.


I think it's better

if you just let it go.
All right?

I don't think we have
another fight in us.

Life is short, Luce.

I see it every day.

People who thought
they'd have more time

to do the things
they want to do.

People who want the idea,

who never appreciated the less
than ideal ordinary day

with their family
and friends.

People who are
indecisive or...

too scared to do
what was in their heart

then found they weren't gonna
get another chance.

Your whole life is

in front of you.

And you have a man you love
to share it with.

Do you know
how many

husbands and wives aren't
in love with each other?

How many people
never find someone?

You and Kevin

found each other.

You're madly in love
with each other.

It doesn't matter that it's
not exactly as you planned.

That it... that it happened

before you reached every goal
you have.

You'll still reach
your goals.

You'll just have someone
to hold your hand

and encourage you along the way.

So embrace this experience.

Get married.

Live your life.

Be happy.

I'm going to need some help
zipping up my dress.

I can do that.

Welcome back!

Welcome back!

So happy to see him.
Good to see you.

Aren't you going
to thank me?

Hi, honey.

I made it.

Oh... Dad.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

You could have called.

You could have called.
Well, maybe I did.

Did you?

I came to Florida.

I tried to find you.

Last week.

I was in Buffalo.

So, you seeing anyone?


Are you seeing anyone?


Wait a minute.
Wait a minute.

Have you seen Robbie
since he moved to Florida?

Lucy and Kevin, in so much
as you have both agreed

to live together
in holy matrimony

and have promised your love
for each other by these vows,

I now declare you to be
husband and wife.


You may kiss your bride.

It is my privilege

to present to you

Mr. and Mrs. Kinkirk.
