7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 7, Episode 22 - Life and Death: Part 2 - full transcript

Peter tells Ruthie she should talk to her parents about her problem. Simon asks someone else to the prom since Cecilia does not want to go. Annie talks to Sarah's mother.

And why does Christine want
to go to the prom with you?

I mean, how old is she?

20-something, I think.

She never made it to her prom.

I know. She told me.

And she regrets not going.

I know. She told me.

Look, I want to go.

I don't want
to regret not going,

you don't want to go--
isn't this the perfect solution?

Thanks again for going with me.

Oh, no problem.

But... I think you should
tell your mom what's going on.

I think you should mind
your own business.


It's an emotional time.

No apologies necessary.


I should get going,

but if you need me, call.


Look who got off early.


Yeah, me, your husband.

So, what do you want to do?

Picnic, movie,
walk in the park?

Or, do you just want to stay in?

Um... would you mind if I
had the apartment to myself?

I... I need some
time to myself.

I-If you don't mind.

No, I don't mind,
if that's what you want.

Leave a message.

I'll get back to you
when I'm on the ground.

Okay, I know you did something,
but now I did something,

and I need you, immediately.

Where are you now?


And my plane had
some mechanical trouble.

I'm trying to get
on another flight,

but right now I'm just stuck.

You don't think the universe
is trying to keep me

from seeing my dad, do you?

It's going to be fine.

Well, I don't know if
it's gonna be fine, but...

I should have never
sent Reverend Camden

to talk to my dad.

It's not something
someone else can do for me.

You don't have to convince me--
I completely agree with you.

No, I'm trying to convince me.

I'll, uh, talk to you later.

I love you.

I love you, too.


Listen, if you like,

you can relax
in the doctors' lounge

while you wait for Matt
to finish his shift.

Well, thanks.

So, what time do you
get back to Glenoak?

Oh, with with the time
change, uh, after 7:00.

Mm. Does your wife
know about the baby?

Well, Matt hasn't
told either of us--

It's not really official.

He told me first.

Isn't that sweet!

Well, for me,
of course, not you.

Does he come down
here often?

Oh, he loves
to watch the babies.

If you'll excuse me,
I think I want to talk

to Mr. Hampton once more
before I leave.

Well, that's not Mr. Hampton.

No, that's the man

Mr. Hampton insists
on sharing a room with.

No, Mr. Hampton's

a big guy.

Oh, scary guy.

Big, scary guy.

Everybody in
the hospital knows

who Mr. Hampton is.

That's not Mr. Hampton?


Oh. I'll be right back.

Look, hon, I know
you want to be alone,

but if something's wrong
we should talk.

Nothing's wrong.

You're sure?

Yeah, I'm sure.


I just need some time to myself.

Maybe some time
to myself outside.

You've reached
the Glass residence.

Please leave your number
after the beep. Thank you.

Hi, Rosina. It's Annie.

I'm not sure if I
should be doing this,

but I'm dying to talk
to you. Call me.

I don't know if I did
the right thing. Ugh.

You always do the right thing.

Yeah, you're the mommy.

And I may even be
the grandmommy.

I want to talk to you.

I have a lot on my
mind-- can this wait?

I thought you liked me.

I thought we were friends.

I do like you,
and we are friends.

Then why would you get Simon
a date with Christine?

It's not a date-- he's just
taking her to the prom

because you don't want
to go to the prom.

but I also don't want
my boyfriend going with

some 20-something-year-old
friend of yours.

Why don't you take
this up with Christine?

Where is she?



Are you gonna stay out here?

If you want me to.

I want you to.

You're taking me to prom--

isn't there something
I can do for you?


Hi, Cecilia.

Hi, Cecilia.

Did you hear?

Simon and I are
going to the prom.

I heard.

You're not upset, are you?

Nice towel.

Wait, you don't think...?

If you knew what I thought,
you'd be running right now.

Don't get the wrong idea.

Nothing is going on.


Simon is just taking pity on me.


But,if you're
not comfortable

in any way with our going
to prom together,

then we just won't go.

What I'm not comfortable with
is you, Christine,

standing in the hall

wearing a towel,
talking to my boyfriend.

I'm just waiting
for the bathroom.

Busy household.

Don't you have a robe?

I don't have a lot of things,

including a place to live,
which is why I'm here.

What are we doing?


Why is Christine
wearing a towel?

Good question.

Hi, Ruthie.

Do you want to play?

Sorry, guys, not now.

Can't a person have
a little privacy?

In thishouse?

Yeah, in thishouse?

Excuse me.

I don't want
to miss my turn.

When we spoke earlier, I thought
you were okay with this.

I was in shock.

I hadn't thought it through.

I hadn't seen Christine
in a towel.

And now?

And now, you want to go, go.

Okay. Thanks.

I'm going out.

Where are you going?

I'm going to walk Happy, okay?

If there's something
going on between you and Peter,

you can tell me, you know,
we can talk about it.

I don't want to talk;
I just want to walk the dog.


Annie, its Rosina.

I've been running around
all morning.

I-I'm getting ready
for a trip to Florida.

I just picked up my messages.
What's going on?


Nothing officially, anyway.


I thought you left.

Not yet.

Well, they took Andrew down
for some more tests.

I'll tell him you stopped by.

That's nice of you, Mr. Hampton.

You are the real Andrew Hampton,
aren't you?

Does this mean I have
to give back the money?

Hey, a deal's a deal.

You know, you can run away
from me, Mr. Hampton,

but you can't run
away from your son.

You just go back
and tell Chandler

I don't want to see him
before I die.

I-I just can't face him, okay?

No, it's not okay--
none of this is okay.

And it's not okay

to hire some poor old guy to
pretend to be you so, what,

I'll go back to Glenoak
and tell your son what
you should tell him!

Look, I just hired that old guy
to get you off my back!

Who are you?

I'm someone you don't
want to make mad!

You don't scare me.
Well, I should!

Yeah, why is that?
Let's just say I can make you
very uncomfortable.

Are you
threatening me?

What do you want from me?

I want you to talk
to your son!

I can't do that.

I won't do that.

For the same reasons
I had that old man tell you!

And for other reasons that
are none of your business!

Well, how about I
make it my business?

I never hit a priest before,
but there's always a first time.

I'm a minister,
not a priest!

And I never hit a
cancer patient before,

but there's always
a first time.

I'm not leaving here until
you agree to talk to your son.

What the hell does that mean?

I'll camp out in this
hospital if I have to.

And when you get released,
I'll follow you home.

I'll dog you day and night.

Really, trust me, I'll become
your worst nightmare.

My worst nightmare, huh?


That's a tall order.

Look, um...

if I agree to talk to my son--
not see him--

talk to him on the phone,
you'll leave?

Shake on it.

Sorry to interrupt, but it's
going to take us an hour

to get to the airport.



my son and I are traveling
back to California together.

You hustled me.

Look, you do know that
Chandler and I

are not going to settle
everything with one phone call?

It's a start.


You must be Christine,
Lucy's friend from school.

I'm Kevin, Lucy's husband.

Do I know you?


No, I do know you.

Please, don't know me, okay?

At least don't tell anyone
you know me or how you know me.

Hi, I'm so sorry
to bother you.

Um, I'm just looking
for my dad.

Oh, can I be him?

Uh, no, um, his name is
Reverend Camden.

Eric Camden?

Someone said they
just saw him.

Yeah, he was just here.

He ran off to catch a plane
with, uh,

your brother, I think.

But I was just at the airport.

Don't do that, please.

I'll help you however I can,
just don't cry.

I can't help it.

My family is going to kill me.

You didn't come
down for dinner.

I just thought
you might be hungry.

It's your favorite,
Chow Dynasty.

That's so nice of you.

I thought that even if
you need time alone,

you still have
to eat, right?

Don't worry,
I'm not staying.

But I did want to mention
something about Christine.

I know her,

and I think you might
want to know how I know her.

How do you know her?

I met her at the police station.

With Mike, the police officer
she's dating?

I don't think so.

I mean, she dates a lot of guys,
but not cops.

She's what you might call
a professional dater.

It's good
to be home.

It's good to have you
both home.

I love you very much.

Both of you, especially Matt.

what's going on?

Well, we've got a visitor.

She just got here.

A visitor?

Just remember I love you, Matt.


What's going on?

I'll tell you
what's going on.

You got my daughter

Come here, Daddy,
give me a hug!

Oh! Oh-ho!

As soon as I found out
I called Richard.

He's already in Florida,
but he sends his love.

And I... I mean, I should

be packing right now,
but I just had to come over

and congratulate you
in person.

It would be nice if
Sarah was with you,

but we'll see her in Florida
and we'll congratulate her then.

Who told you Sarah's pregnant?

I love you.

Mom, what would make you think
Sarah's pregnant?

A nurse at the hospital
told me, and I told Annie.

And I told Rosina.

Why are you crying?

My baby is having a baby.

Look, I'm sorry.
This is all my fault.

The nurse at the hospital
called me Grandpa

and we got
to talking

and, well...

your mother and I
are just so happy.

I'm just glad the cat
is finally out of the bag.

Or the baby is
out of the bassinet.

A baby, a grandchild!

Oh, Matt,
we are just so happy.

So happy.

Sarah isn't pregnant.

We thought she was,
but she isn't.

Not pregnant?

The nurse that told dad is a
friend of mine; we talk a lot.

I told her I thought
Sarah was pregnant, but I...

I forgot to tell her
that she wasn't.

I'm sorry.

I hope... I hope you all
aren't too disappointed.

Well... well,
that was close.

A little too close.

Sarah is not ready
to have a baby.

Neither is Matt.

I agree.

Wait, wait, I thought

you all were so happy
we were pregnant.

What, are you nuts?

You're in your first
year of marriage

and your first year
of medical school.

I can't wait to be
a grandmother,

but I can wait.

Me, too.

You know what's nuts?

You people are nuts.
But I love you.

And it's great to be back
in the nut house.

I think I better
call Sarah.


Well, I think we all dodged
a bullet on that one.

Let's celebrate.

Coffee and cake?


I got to talk to Ruthie
about something.

You take care of Rosina.
I'll be right back.


You got anything stronger?

Cooking sherry?

Make mine neat with a twist.


Mom, I have to get through
this chapter, so...

You know I love you, right?


And you can tell me anything?


Is there anything
you want to tell me?


You sure?

Yes, I'm sure.

I know.

Know what?

I know why you've been
moody and emotional

and why you want more privacy.

I know you've started
your period.

Now is there anything
you want to tell me?

I'm going to kill
Peter Petrowski.

You have to tell Simon.

No, I don't.

Yes, you do.

You can't let him take
Christine to the prom.

Why don't you tell him?

I really think the words that
"your prom date is a hooker"

will come off better
from a police officer.

She may not be a...

She may have retired
since she got arrested.

So, she's still did
you-know-what for money.

And she can't go to the prom
with Simon.

Maybe he already knows.

And if he doesn't,
maybe we should trust Simon

to do the right thing
if he finds out.

And besides, it's for one night.

What's the worst
that can happen?

What happened to you
on your prom night?

I'll talk to him.


I have to meet Mary
at the Promenade.

She caught a flight in.

We're sisters.
We have to talk.

Look, Luce...

I just wish you'd tell me
what's going on.


Welcome home.

I have to kill Peter Petrowski.


What's going on?




a woman as of yesterday.


Yes, yesterday.

Tell everyone.

No, you are not going down
to Peter's; it's too late.


if I can't kill Peter,
I just want to be alone.

Looks like you could
use a sherry.

Allow me.

Ruthie became a woman yesterday?

A woman who doesn't
want her mother.

Ah, why are we
using the euphemism

"became a woman?"

Because Peter did.

So Peter knew


I... I tried your cell phone.

I must have missed you.

I need to talk to you before
you talk to your parents.

And let me just say I'm sorry.

I love you.

Call me.

I didn't know you were back
until I saw Rosina downstairs.

Is everything okay?

Sarah and I aren't pregnant.



I was just looking for Simon.

Well, he went out with
this very attractive,

scantily dressed woman

he claims he's taking
to the prom next week.


What's up?

Simon can't go
to the prom.

Why can't he go to the prom?

Because it turns out that
his date has a bad reputation,

a very bad reputation.

Look, I went to the
prom with a girl

who didn't have such
a great reputation,

and everything worked
out just fine.

Was your date
a... professional?

Because Simon's date

is a professional dater...

or a former
professional dater.

Lucy goes to school
with her.

She brought her home...

it's a long story.

Well, you can tell me in the car
while we're looking for him.

By "professional..."

you mean...

She's a...

You know, it's... it's probably
just nerves or something.

Mom got pregnant with the twins
when she was on the pill.


Then maybe you
are pregnant.


That almost makes me
feel better.

Do you think you're going
to have twins, too?

I hadn't thought of that.

Does Kevin know?

I'm not ready to tell him.

But you have
to tell him.

No I don't.

Not until I know that
there's something to tell.

And if I am, then I am.

Then I'll let Kevin know

and then I'll let everyone
else know.

Right after you tell them
your big news.

Well, I might not have
anything to tell either.

You're married.

Not if I can get it annulled.

I think that's a good
idea considering.

On the other hand, if you're
just getting an annulment

because you think no one
will like him...

You think if Dad helps me
get the annulment

then he'll still tell Mom?

Yeah, I'm an idiot.

We're both idiots.

Well, shall we?

Hold my hand, will you?

Well, hey, Lucy, Mary.

What brings you out so late?

I was just locking up.

I need an early
pregnancy test.


Don't you "hello" me!


You told my mom. How could you?

Oh, that.

Yes, that.

Why'd you do it?

And don't call me
"honey" or "sweetie."

Just tell me why you told my mom

when you know I didn't want
her or anyone else to know.

You told my mom that I smoked.

Well, so this is payback?


I don't understand.

Why did you tell my mom
that I was smoking?

Because she needed to know.

That's why I told
your mom about you.

You should have told her.

She was going crazy.
She wanted to know.

It seemed like
the right thing to do.

She's your mother.

Where's Simon?


So does everyone know?


I knew I wasn't going
to make it to that prom.

Time to move on, huh?

Oh, come on.

You don't really care what
happens to me, do you?

And I'm sure you don't want
to hear my sad, sad story.

So why don't I just go
inside and pack my bags

and be on my way

and make everyone happy?

You mean run away?

It's worked in the past.

Right now you have
a place to live,

and you're with a family
that I know will help you

if you ask them.

What's your excuse
going to be this time

when you run away
and do what you do?

Is everything okay?

Yeah, I just want
to get to Sarah

before her parents do.

I'm sorry about
telling Rosina.
Thanks for the apology,

but you wouldn't have had
anything to tell them

if I hadn't said anything
to that nurse.

I just hope Sarah
isn't too angry.

Oh Sarah loves you.

I know.

I meant I hope she's
not too angry with you.

I'm kidding.

She would never be
angry with you

when she could be angry with me.

Simon, Kevin and I

have been looking for you
all night. Where you been?

I was at the mall shopping
for a prom dress.

Not for me, for Christine.

Come on, let's talk.

Hey, just a second,


Dad, I'm not like Mary.

I'm not going to send you
to the store for tampons.

And I'm not like Lucy,

who thought her whole
life was over

when all her friends had
their periods and she didn't.

I'm like me.

And I don't want
to talk about it.

I don't want a special dinner
or celebration.

That's why I didn't want anyone
to know, especially Mom.

Because I knew Mom would
make a big deal about it.

Well, your mom didn't
make it that way.


it is that way.

It's a... it's a first.

It's a big first,

and your mother and I
have been there

for all your firsts.

The first time you smiled.

The first time
you laughed.

The first time you cried.

Your first day of school.

Your first fight.

The first boy
you liked.

The first time you rode a bike.

Your-your mother and I have
memories of all these moments

in your life, but this...

Well, you know this is

a special thing between
a mother and a daughter and...

and even though I'm here
for you if you want me to be...

this is really an event that you
and your mom should share.

What do you want me to do?

Sleep on it.

See what comes to you.

I'm serious.



Do I know you?

I'm Christine.

I'm Lucy's friend.

She's my friend, too.

Dad, can I talk
to Christine alone?

Good night.

So, I guess you know
all about me...

thanks to Kevin.

No, it wasn't Kevin.

My brother Matt told me.

Why didn't you tell me?

I figured when your family
found out about my past...

I'd have to leave.

And I didn't want
to give this family up.

But you wouldn't

what it's like to have a past.

I ran an escort business
at my school.

No sex.

I just provided
dating services to women

who needed dating services.

But until tonight,
even though I understood

what I was doing was wrong, I...

I don't think I ever
really understood

how wrong the whole idea was.

Sex, companionship,


it shouldn't be bought or sold.

And I feel badly that
you found yourself

in such a desperate
situation that you...

you felt you didn't
have a choice.

Why don't you stick around?

Let my dad help you out.


If it's okay, maybe I will.

So I guess this means...

This means that I think

you should save your money

for something other
than a prom dress.

Maybe an apartment,
tuition, books...



You're up.

Well, I don't sleep
much these days.

Besides, your
brother just left.

How is Sid?

I made him promise to quit
smoking the day I die.

Yeah, well, Sid won't quit
until the day he dies.

Well, you talk to him.

He'll listen to you.

I um...

I met Reverend Camden.

How'd that go?

He's a tough guy
for a minister.

And annoying, too.

I told him I didn't
want to see you.

I cut you off without a dime.

I never supported you.

I hate what you're
doing with your life.

I'm surprised you
wanted to see me.

I didn't want to see you...

...for the same reasons.

But you're dying.

Yeah, so they tell me.

And you're my father.

And I can't change that.

And I can't run away from that.

Shortly after I sent
Reverend Camden to see you,

I-I just realized that
I have to face you for myself.

I can't send someone else
to do that for me.

Well, here I am. Face me.

You think this is easy for me?
Because it's not.

Hey, I'm the one
with the hard part here.

I got lung cancer; I'm dying.


what if we could just...
start over?

Right now.

Just forget the past.

Could you do that?

I don't know. Could you?

Well, I could give it
a try if...

you're willing
to give it a shot.



Uh, you, uh... still
like the Yankees?

You came all the way out here
just to talk about the Yankees?

Eh, why not?

I'll tell you the future
of the Yankees,

first base coach.

Aren't you coming to bed?

I talked to Christine,
and Matt talked to Simon.

Thanks. I'm gonna talk
to them both, too.

Where's Mary?
Why didn't she come home?

She's staying... with a friend.

Uh, she's not quite ready
to come home.

You know you can
tell me anything.

You know that, right?

I'm too tired to talk tonight.

Let's just sleep.

Just sleep.

Christine is gone.

Do you know
where she is?

But I certainly
didn't ask her to leave.


You can't save people.

You don't have
that kind of power.

You can only give people
choices and opportunities.

The rest is up to them.

I'm sorry I hurt your feelings.

It's not what
I wanted to do.

I just didn't want you
to make a big deal about this.

Ruthie, you may not see
the significance

of the last couple
of days, but, well,

what's happened to you
is significant.

Not to me it isn't.

You and dad have talked

about this stuff my whole life.

I've seen the films,
read the books.

I have two older sisters.

I know what's
happening to my body.

It's not a miracle;
it just happens.

And I don't want
to celebrate it, okay?

I don't want a traditional
Camden family celebration

that starts with a big dinner

and ends with Dad
buying me feminine products.

It's not who I am.

Okay, what would make you happy?

No, this isn't about me.
That's what I thought

before I talked to Dad.

But I was wrong.

It is about you-- you and me.

And there has to be
a compromise.

Something that
we could do together

that would make you happy
and not make me barf.

Well, we could go out
for a celebration dinner.

How about
a non-celebration dinner?

A dinner where
we do not discuss my womanhood?

Hey, Ruthie?


You knew?

But you didn't say anything.

You didn't try to talk to me,

give me sage older-sister


I figured when you were ready to
talk about it, you'd come to me.

I was just trying
to respect your privacy.


Okay, okay. I'm a woman.

Are you happy now?


Yeah, congratulations.

Here endeth the celebration
of my womanhood.


we are all going
to dinner tonight.

Spread the word.

I have to go call Peter
and apologize.

They grow up fast.

They really do.

They really do.




It's Chandler.

Oh, I was gonna
call you later today.

I got in last night,
and there's a lot going on here.

Yeah, well, I'm in New York,

at the hospital...

with my dad.


Yeah, I just, uh, got on a plane
and, well, here I am.

Well, how's everything going?

We're talking.

Well, it hasn't been easy
for either one of us,

but, uh... we're doing it.

Well, good for you.

Um, I'm, uh,
coming home tonight.

Why so soon?

Well, I have something
I need to say to Roxanne,

and I have to do it in person.

And if I don't do it soon
I'm going to go...

I just... I have to see her.

So we'll talk when you get back.

I'd like that.


Look, if I, uh,
hadn't taken this job

and met you,

none of this
would have happened.


thank you,
more than you could know.

No, thank youfor...

coming here and taking this job
and, you know,

taking care of my parishioners
while I took care of myself.

Well, anytime.

I'll talk to you later.

And... thanks.

Same here.

I-I thought you left.

I thought I left, too.

I'm glad you're back.

Me, too.
So, are you gonna
stay for a while?

If it's okay with your
parents and everyone,

until I get a job
and a place to live.

I think you made
the right choice.

For once, I think I did.


So, do you want
to go out for pizza
with me and my family?

Are we celebrating something?



I think.
