7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 9, Episode 4 - Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do - full transcript

Simon is still an emotional mess, but is ready to return to school when he meets Justin Smith, the brother of the boy he accidentally ran over. He finds he's finally off drugs and even grateful that the trauma repaired his family rift; closure becomes possible before he moves to college. Harry is determined to let the Camden parents tell Ruthy it's over. He decides to find a family of his own by marrying a girl in the Social Services home they're both desperate to get out of. Both Kevin and Martin play the protective big brothers. There's also a bird which fell out of the nest; Ruthie's responsibility just because she found it. High-pregnant teenager Leanne wants Eric to choose an adoptive couple to be parents for her baby, but goes in labor early. Lucy finds both candidate couples utterly selfish. Eric finds the father, Charlie Bates, still prepared to do he right thing provided Eric helps him with his parents. Charlie's parents fear he would throw away his own future for a girl they did so much for, and then split up. Leanne's lousy, virtually absent mother gives Annie a hard time just to visit her offspring in hospital.


thank you for your
donation, Mrs. Leahy.

You've always been so generous

with your time as,
as well as your money.

Uh, no.

Well, okay, sure.

Hello, Jack.

Jack, uh, can you put your
mommy back on the phone?

Mrs. Leahy?

Is-Is Jack all right?


Yes, he certainly has a

lively way of
expressing himself.

Okay, good-bye.

You know, I think
that's a mom thing,

'cause Mary does
the same thing.

Every time I call her
she puts little

Charles Miguel
on the phone

and I end up paying
long-distance charges

just to listen to him breathe
while she's in the background

going, "Say hi, say hi."

he'll probably be
talking up a storm in no time.

Well, since I'm
leaving for school

I thought I'd come
say my farewells.

I wish you were leaving
with more assurance

that you realize you made
some bad choices last year,

'cause I feel that
instead you're leaving with

commitment to
continue some bad choices.

I think we're gonna have
to agree to disagree.

Okay, Simon,

we'll agree to disagree.

But when you're faced with the
consequences of your actions--

and there are consequences--

please don't let the fact that
I'm right and you're wrong

keep you from
coming to me for help.

And, um, with that said,

I believe you'll be needing
a little money for school.

So far, Dad,

the consequences have been
that I've reexamined my life

and I've realized why I was
doing what I was doing,

which is crazy because
I'm not a bad person.

And, you know,
so now...


If I continue
doing what I'm doing

it'll be for the right reasons.

Like marriage?

Do you really want me
to get married at 19?

No, but I really want you
to wait until you find

someone you're
madly in love with,

who's a good person

and whose life
complements yours,

and then marry her
after you're both

out of college
and then have sex.

Yeah, that's exactly what
my parents planned for me.

Only, it didn't quite
work out that way.


Reverend Camden.

Come in.

This is my son, Simon.


Hi. Let me guess...

he called you down here

and you could pretend
that you're in trouble

so that I could see
what would happen to me.

I have to pack.
Thanks for the check.

Please go, please just go.


Is that you?

It's Justin.

Justin Smith.

I know.

I'm probably the last person

in the whole world
you wanted to see today.

Actually, that's not true.

Well, it's true for me.

I-I've been dreading this day

pretty much every minute
of my life since the accident.

I can imagine.

I should have called you
way before this.

Man... I'm really sorry
about all those threats.

Must have really
freaked you out.

Maybe we could grab a cup
of coffee sometime.

Uh... all right.

Maybe, yeah.

You know,
whenever you want.

I'll... I'll leave it up to you.

Are you for real?

Straight up.

I mean, I just...
I can't believe I'm...

I'm looking at the same person.

You look so different.

I mean, you look great.

Yeah, I... I've changed a lot.

It's been over a year
since the accident,

and the loss of my brother...

it saved my family and me,

and it seems to have
some purpose now.

Doesn't take the pain away,
but... we're better now.

I'm drug free,
with absolutely no desire

of ever going
near that stuff again.

And I've even been asked
to speak at some schools,

you know, about what seems
like a harmless little drug

can end in death and the
near destruction of a family.

How are you doing?

I'm okay, I guess, you know.

I'm... I'm going to be okay.

I'm going back to school.

It's going to be my second year.

I can't drive
by that corner, though.

I mean, I freak out every time

I have to pass someone
who's on a bike.

I don't think I'm ever going to
be able to get on a bike again.

And aside from the fact
that I'm in this relationship

that can't be good, I'm...

Getting some help?


If you ever need anything...

you know where I live.

Pick one.

I can't do it. I...

I can't believe that after
all I've been through

that I can't keep
this baby, but...

I can't, so...
those are the two choices.

Look, I'll meet with them if
you'd like and give you

my opinion, but you might want
to meet with the couple

I choose,
just for your own peace of mind.

These people

are going to be the parents
of your child.

No, I... I trust you.

You'd be much better than me
at picking the right people.

We can meet

with them together if that would
make you feel more comfortable.

I don't want
any part of it.

It's too painful for me.

I just can't do it.

I'll meet with them first.

If, for any reason,
neither couple works out,

I'm going to put you in touch
with a very reputable attorney

who might have
a little more experience than...

you know, just a guy you found
off the Internet.

Thank you, Reverend Camden,

but hopefully,
one of these couples will do.



Was that plan B to keep Simon
on the straight and narrow?


That, uh... that young lady

is about to give her baby up
for adoption because

she's not married,

she just graduated
from high school,

she's got a chance
to start college in January,

and she doesn't feel
she can provide for her child.

And I just...
I don't think she's

thought this through
or gotten the best advice.

Okay, now you made me
really sad.

Oh... I don't want
to make you sad.

You make me smile
every time I see you.

How's it going?

It's going great.

I got my paper back.

I made an A.

Part of last week's sermon?


Would you like
to do this week's sermon?

No, I've got midterms coming up,

and I'm kicking off my class
for teens this afternoon.

You're a few hours early.

Yeah, Kevin worked
the night shift last night,

and he's sleeping.

I thought I'd just come down and
kind of get used to the place.


Did you need the office?

I have a few things to do.

So we'll share it.

Where is your mommy?

Go home, Mr. Fluffy.

No bird today.

Who's out there?

I was chasing away

the neighbors' cat.

You like the neighbors' cat.

Oh, that is the sweetest
little bird.

Well, take him back outside
and find the nest.

I have homework.

So the bird dies because you
have something else to do?

No, no, no, your bird,
your responsibility.

I've got a family
to take care of.



Hi, Mrs. Camden.

It's Harry.

Is Ruthie there?

No, she's outside.

Could I have her call you back?

Could you just give her
a message?


Could you tell her

I found another girlfriend?

I'm not gonna give her a message
like that.

You tell her yourself.

It's not a big deal.

Could you just tell her, please?


but I will tell her
to call you back.

Does that come in pink?

What about yellow?


It's only in blue, there
are no other choices?

If you could come to
the church this afternoon,

that would be great.

Okay, thank you,



Yeah, I, I'm having a girl.

Yeah, I know.

So what bumpers do come in pink?

What? No, I, I don't
like fairies.

No, I don't like
unicorns either.

Am I too loud?

No, it's just a little

Wait... wait, stripes
are too masculine,

but what about


I'll just work from my office
at home,

unless, of course, you'd like
to work from my office at home.

I can't, I've got
teenagers coming.

Wait, pink gingham?

Oh, well...


I'm happy I
found you.


I tried to get Mrs. Camden
to do this, but she won't.

Could you tell Ruthie I have
another girlfriend?

Oh, no.

Been there, done that.

You can tell her yourself.

I don't even know her that well.

Well, still,
that's a conversation

you have to have with Ruthie.

Here's the thing.

There's a girl
in Social Services

who doesn't have a family

and let's face it,
at this age

we're not gonna get a family,

so we thought
we'd just get married.

You really think
that's a good plan, Harry?

You really think it's better
to be in Social Services?


I want a family,

and if I have to start one
of my own, fine.

If I can't get a mom and a dad,
I'll take a wife.

Which means I can't
be Ruthie's boyfriend.


You explain it to her.

I, I don't have enough

Are you busy?

A little.

Feel free to grab that
mop and help me out.

I just wanted
to ask you something.

Ask away.

Did you, you know,

were you and Lucy ever...

together before
you got married?

No, we were not.

We waited until we got married.

Was that your idea
or Lucy's idea?

It was something we
decided together.

What, um, what about
before Lucy?

What are you getting at?

What I'm getting at is
maybe I'm not normal.

Maybe I'm the only
guy in the world

who thinks he has to wait
until he gets married.

What brought this on? Simon?

I had a bad practice today.

And when I thought about it,
I realized most guys my age

are just fooling around
after school,

not knocking themselves out

just to get yelled at
by some dumb coach.

You had a bad practice
so now you think

you'll completely abandon
everything you believe in

and go out and do
something stupid?

Yeah, it does sound kind of dumb
when I think about it.

Wait a minute.

Why'd you have a bad practice?

I saw that Harry kid
with some girl.

Ruthie's gonna get
her heart broken.

I'll kill him.

He's pretty tough.

I'm a cop.

He's in Social Services.

I don't think he's afraid
of authority figures.

We'll see about that.

Do you know where
this kid lives?

Social Services.

Yeah, right.

Finish the floor.

I'll be back.

No way.

I can't find
the nest.

Oh, we'd better
find somebody

to take care of it.

Well, I can

take care of it.

I want to take care of it.

How are you gonna feed it?

Can't be that hard.

You just get some worms, right?

Yeah, but why don't I go down

to the sporting goods store
for you?

They, they sell live worms
for fish bait.

Well, that's great. Thanks.

How are things going with Harry?

I know you don't like him, Dad,

but he's a nice guy,
a really nice guy.

Yeah, but he's not the only
nice guy at your school.

There are
probably lots of nice guys.

I'm sure there are,

but this is the one
I'm interested in.


I couldn't find the nest.

So I'm just going to have
to take care of the bird myself.


Harry called, he wants you
to call him back.

Yeah, I'll call him.


I need to speak
to Reverend Camden.

Well, he's not home yet.

Are you Mrs. Camden?

Yes, I am.

This is Leanne.

I need some help.

I-I-I'm here at the hospital.

I'm having my baby.

I-I thought I had a couple
more weeks, but I don't.

I don't even know if I have
a couple more hours.


I'll find him, but what do you
want him to do exactly?

I want him to hurry up and find
my baby a mom and dad.

Like now!

Keep breathing.

That wasn't so bad,
was it?


This is nothing

how I thought having my first
baby would be like.

How did you picture it?

First off, I never expected it

to be the product
of a broken home.

I always dreamed I'd have
this big wedding, and...

my dad would walk me
down the aisle,

have this really proud look
on his face.

He would be so happy for me.

And then when I
got pregnant,

my mom would pamper me

and be there for me

and tell me what it's like
every step of the pregnancy,

so it wasn't so scary.

And then after I
had the baby,

they would come and visit us
every Sunday

and I'd cook us all dinner.

I haven't seen my dad in years,

and my mom was
so furious

when she found out
I was pregnant

that she kicked me out
of the house.

She said she'd let me
come back home

and-and help me with college,

only if I gave my baby up.

Here I am, single,

in labor with a baby
I know I have to give up,

with-with someone
whom I hardly know

taking the time
to take care of me.

It's pretty pathetic, huh?

No, I'm happy to be here
for you, Leanne.

I'll help you
through this, okay?

Thank you.

I guess I learned the hard way--
it's better not to have dreams,

'cause you'll always
be disappointed

because people will always
disappoint you.

I've even disappointed myself.

Oh, don't say that.

People make mistakes.

People aren't perfect.

We make choices that affect
where our lives go,

but if it's not the right

there's still a chance to...
to make it good.

It, it may not
be your original dream,

but if you learn
from the mistake,

why, you know, you can make a
version of that dream come true.

I don't want my baby
to think it can't count on me

and have to go through
what I've been through.

I want to be there...

and I don't want
to let my baby down.


there is no way
I'm giving up my baby.

Call Eric, now!

Excuse me.

I'm sorry

we had to wake you.

Ever since I've
become pregnant, I

find myself taking little
catnaps here and there.

I'm Bernadette Owen,


this is my husband Marcus.

We are thrilled at the prospect
of adopting your baby.


So, how many months
along are you?

Oh, well, I'm in my second

but I should...

Actually, if you don't mind,
we'd like to start right in

and get down
to business.

Um, I feel it's important
for both parties

to have the information,
you know,

to make a--
an educated

and-and suitable

We just have a few



Great, um--

okay, uh, any-any mental
illness in the family?

Um, let's see, um,

I'm not sure, but right now
there's none that I know of.

I'll, I'll ask.

Right, okay, good.

Um, any history of drug
or alcohol abuse?

Absolutely not.

Do, do you and the father
happen to know

what your IQ's are?

No, but...

we both consider ourselves
intelligent people.

Okay. Um...

Do you or the father have
any special skill sets

or anything, let's say,

that you find you are
naturally gifted at?

Right, uh, you know,
such as, um,


Uh, music, science.

It could be physical,
as well as intellectual.

Before we go on with any more

I... I just want to remind you
that as I understand it,

I'm the one who should be
doing the interviewing.

So, so, let me throw a
question back at you.

What if you knew that my baby
had no special skills at all,

was of average intelligence,

and would grow up
to be an average person

who was kind and hardworking?

That would be something that
we'd have to think about.

I think this is the end
of our meeting.


And shame on you.


Lucy, I'm sorry.
I'm not going to be able

to get down to the church.
Something's come up.

Hmm. Don't worry about it, Dad.

Will you be able to meet

with prospective parents
for Leanne's baby?

Well, actually,
I already met with a couple.

I couldn't get a hold of you.

Well, great.
How-How did it go?

Oh, they are definitely
not going to work out.

Dad, you wouldn't believe
what they said. It was like...

Luce, if-if you didn't think
they were right, I trust you.

Thanks for your vote
of confidence, Dad.

I won't let you
or Leanne or the baby down.

Well, at the moment,
Leanne has changed her mind,

but maybe it's just
under the stress of delivery.

Oh, so you're at the hospital.

Uh, your mom is.

Look, I know you have
your teen class coming in,

so if it's too much to meet

with this other couple,
I can reschedule.

No, not a problem, Dad,
but I thought you said

that Leanne
had changed her mind.

For now.

We don't know
what's going to happen, so...

they don't need
to know anything just now.

I just... I wish I had more time
to get to know Leanne.

You know, more time
to find a-a really nice couple.

There are so many
of them out there.

Well, I'll let you know
if they come here.

Why don't you feed him cereal?

I bet he likes cereal.

It's delicious and
nutritious, too.

Well, he likes these worms.

He's just not eating as much
as he was before.

He doesn't look the same
as when you first found him.

Hey, how's the bird doing?

Oh, uh, in case
I don't see you before I go,

I'm-I'm leaving for school
sometime today,

so I'll see you
when I get back.




I'm not leaving
right this second, you guys.

See you later.


So, is that your way
of kicking me to the curb?

What do you mean?

I need

a little more closure than that.

I'm just going off to school.

Yeah, but it's not just you
going off to school.

It's you leaving again,
and let's face it.

You're not going to be back home
for any period of time.

You've flown the coop.

Ruthie, I'm always going
to be a part of this family.

Yeah, but lately,
it just seems by name only.

I mean, I don't mind
being left out of

the family conversations
about you and your problems,

but I do mind
being left out of your life.

You're not being left
out of my life.

Look, I have to get to the bank
before it closes.

Then I'll come back,
and we'll talk, okay? I promise.

Yeah, yeah.
That's what they call

the big blow off, isn't it?

Hi. You must be
the Shearers.

- Yes.
- I'm Lucy Camden.

I'm filling in for my father.

He's sorry he couldn't make it,
but since I'm an expectant mom,

I hope you wouldn't mind
talking to me

so I can tell the expectant mom
a little bit about you both.

Not at all.
We're so excited.

How soon do you think we'll
be able to get the baby?

Uh... Uh.... I-I don't know.

I think the mother just wanted
someone to meet you

to see if she should meet you.

Are other couples
being interviewed?


Well, uh, we can provide

the very best things for
this child that money can buy.

I want the mother
to know that.

Oh, okay.

If we can

get him or her before
the new restaurant opens,

that would be

Oh, would you or your husband,

or both of you be able
to take maternity leave?

Oh, no. No, no, no.

We run our own business,
so that wouldn't be possible.

We already own a couple
of restaurants, so,

it's a 24/seven type
of business.

But don't let
that worry you,

because we know
this terrific nanny.


We've already talked
to her about being

a possible live-in,

since the weekends
are our busiest days.

And just so you know,

it's not as if we
can't have our own baby.

There's no problem
in that department.

Biologically speaking, the
doctors say there isn't

a problem with me
conceiving a baby.

It's just that we don't want
to go through all that...

and take unnecessary risks.

Unnecessary risks?

What if there were
complications, and she

had to spend some
of her pregnancy in bed?

We can't have that.

There is no way
she can take time

off of work, so adopting
is the best option for me.

Her. Us.

And she doesn't have
to lose her figure.

I was just kidding.

We really do
think that adoption is

the easiest way to go for us.

No need

in making this parent thing
any harder than it has to be.


I'm really sorry
about... your situation,

but I don't understand why
you would choose to hurt Ruthie.

She's not dumping you.

She would, eventually.


I borrowed it.


Hi. It's Ruthie.

What's up?

Harry, I need your help.

Kevin and Martin are here.

Maybe you should talk
to one of them.

Hi, Ruthie.

Where are you,

and what are you
and Martin doing with Harry?

I'll explain it
to you later.

What do you need?

I'm trying to save a baby bird,

and I think it's dying.

Are you Charlie Bates?

Yes. Do I know you?


I'm Eric Camden.
I'm, uh, the minister

down at Glenoak
Community Church.

I'm a friend of Leanne's.


Where-Where is she?

Uh, may I come in?

Charlie, who is it?

Maybe we should talk out here.

All right.

It's okay, Mom.

Look, I... I'm sorry.

I'm gonna have to forego

all the usual pleasantries

and just get
to what I have to tell you.

She's pregnant, isn't she?

I-I know that must
be what happened,

but her mother won't
tell me anything,

and Leanne just disappeared.

You're going to be a father.

Leanne wanted
to give the baby up

for adoption, but now
she's gone into labor, and

she's changed her mind.

She would like you to be there.


I kind of knew, but I-I didn't.

Look, I-I'm sorry,
but we don't have a lot of time.

How... How am I gonna
tell my parents?

I-I have to tell my parents.

I'm so dead.

Well, I'll help you talk
to them.

Look, I'm relieved
that you want to talk to them.

I think you're gonna need them.

Just one thing?

Take a little more time
than you did with me

before breaking it to them.

I don't want to have
to call the paramedics.

All right.

I see spots.

There are no spots,
but it does

look like he's
losing feathers.

It's because he hasn't grown
all his feathers yet.

Okay, Mr. Vet.

He seems weak.

What's going on?

I think this bird
is getting worse.

Oh, Ruthie, I'm sorry.

The recording says the Wildlife
Rescue Station is open,

but I can't get an actual person
on the line.

Maybe we should just go.

I'll go with you.

Same here.

I've got to stay here
in case Mom and Dad

need me, but Ruthie,
you go with your bird.

I'll take care
of Sam and David.

No, I promised Mom

I'd stay with them.

Besides, if Mom needs
you at the hospital,

you can't take Sam
and David with you.

Yes, I know.

Yes, I-I know it's
very difficult,

but she's here alone.

Yes, I'm here, but
I'm not her mother.

Oh, man.

She's not
coming, is she?

Maybe she'll change her mind.

No, she won't.

My mom is right.

My baby will be better off
with a mom and a dad.

Maybe I should reconsider.

I think Eric might be

with the baby's father
right now.

That was probably
a mistake, too.

But why...
why did you listen to me?

Don't you know
that I'm a stupid girl

who makes a lot
of stupid mistakes?

Maybe there's a reason

the baby came
before you found a family.

Maybe it's part
of God's plan.

It's going to be okay.

Whatever happens,
whatever you decide,

it's going to be okay.

How is it going to be okay?

I don't know,
but I know it will.

And I'll be right here.


It was probably a mistake
to call my mother anyway.

Yeah, I know it's difficult
not to go back

to the should haves
and the could haves,

but I think we-we...
we have to get beyond that now.

The situation is what it is,
and everyone is going to have

to deal with it, since
Leanne is in labor as we speak.

But I still
don't understand

why she didn't tell anyone
before now.

We suspected
this might have happened.

But really,

why couldn't she stick
to her original plan

of giving the baby up instead of
turning our family inside out?

She may go back

to wanting to find a couple
to adopt the baby, and...

Maybe I should
have told Leanne

to wait to tell you
and your son,

but she's having
the baby, and...

well, don't you want

to have the option
of being there?

She is no more ready
to be a mother

than he is to be a father.

Thanks, Mom, but the fact is,

she's gonna be a mother,
and I'm the father.

Well, this is wrong.

And Charlie,
you have to think about this.

You don't have to go.

You have a future
to look forward to,

and it doesn't have
to include Leanne.

What kind of a future is there
for my child if I'm not there?

Thanks a lot.

Would you want someone
to do this

to you if your son
did the same thing?

I'm very sorry, but...

a lawyer I've never heard of
referred Leanne to me, and I...

She just came in today, and

happened so quickly.

And yes, actually,

as difficult as it might be,

I think I would want someone
to come to me

if my son were in
this situation.

Charlie and Leanne have
been together since third grade.

She's practically our daughter.

Then they grew up

and graduated
from high school.

And she broke his heart.

Just took off
without any warning.

She didn't even try
to contact Kay or myself.

Does Connie, her mother,
know anything about this?

Yes, she does,

but she won't
let Leanne come home

until she gives up the baby.

Leanne ate here,

got through school
by getting help

with her homework here.

We even took her
when she got her braces off.

She was a part of the family.

And now?

I just so wish
we had more time, but

your grandchild's about to
be born.

So then, what have you
been feeding it?

Worms and water.

Oh, great. Don't tell me you
actually bought the worms.

Yeah, she said they
came from a bait shop.

Those worms have parasites,
you know.

Perfect way to kill a baby bird.

If she would

have known, she wouldn't
have fed it worms.

How come in cartoons
that's all that birds eat?

Get informed.

Hey, Ruthie's been
with this bird every minute

trying to keep it alive,
and she did the best she could.

Settle down.

Since you haven't
been feeding it

for more than a day,
I'm sure we can save it.

But next time,
no food,

no water, keep the bird
in a warm, quiet place,

and bring it here, pronto.

Hey, Leanne.


I'll leave you two alone.

Hi, Connie,
I'm Annie Camden.

Can't you leave me
and my daughter alone?

I don't have much time.
Leanne's in labor.

Please, won't you
come to the hospital

and be
with your daughter?

Look, I already told you.
I am not going.

I don't want to turn this
into a big, emotional event,

because it'd just
make it harder on her.

I want Leanne to give up
the baby for adoption.

Well, I don't think
she's going to do that.

Her decision.

I have seven children
of my own,

and they
don't always do

what we want them to do,
but when they don't,

they need us
more than ever. Please?

Leanne practically
raised herself.

I was never

a good mother.

I am not the mother type.

Well, now's your chance.

I wonder what
it would be like

not to be married
and have a baby.

You're never going
to find that out.

Do you think Harry
is too troubled for me?

I mean, he's nice,
but he's troubled.

Yeah, maybe you guys
should just be friends.

Well, maybe you
could tell him.

No, but I'll be there
for you after you tell him.


I don't know.

Talking to you about boys,
it-it's nice.

It reminds me of how Mary and I
used to talk about boys.

Where have you been?

Taking care of some
old business.


Well, I have
new business for you.

You want to tell Harry
we should just be friends?

No, thanks, I don't do well
with that conversation.

But I brought
Chinese food home.

Where are Sam and David?

What's in the bag?

I picked up some
Chinese food for all of us.

Oh, boy, I'm hungry.

Oh, food! Glorious food!

Let's see what we got.

I think that
getting married

is the right thing
for them to do.

We all know it's
the best thing to do.

Why do I have to be
the one to say it?

With a baby,
Charlie and Leanne

will be tied together
forever now.

And I think they have
a shot at a marriage.


We weren't much older
when we got married.

Well, neither was I,

and it didn't work out.

But it can work out.

My son is perfectly capable
of being responsible.

And he's already
proven that

by coming down here today.

Look, we can talk
about this all we want, right?

They're the ones
who have to decide.

Nothing is going
to be decided today.


all we can do
is be there for them.

So, what happened?

Your bird is
going to be fine.

The next time
you find a bird...

don't feed it worms.


Thanks, you guys,

for taking it
to the Wildlife Rescue Station.

I saved the shoebox just

in case you wanted something
to remember the bird by.

Thank you.

Hey, do you have a second?


I think we should just
be friends.
I think we should
just be friends.

You thought you
were going to be

the first one
to say it, huh?

I'm just glad I wasn't
the only one to say it.

Oh, my gosh.

You wouldn't believe
how tense I was all day

just thinking about
telling you.

It's a load off
my shoulders, too.

Well, I better get going.

I'll catch a bus.

I'll ask someone
to drive you home.

Are you okay?

So that's what you guys were
doing over there?

Trying to keep Harry
from breaking up with me?

I was going to break up
with him.

We're friends.

We're both okay.

You're very lucky.

Take it from me,
it doesn't always work that way.

Can you give
Harry a ride home?

No problem.

So I guess I'm
your ride home.

Hopefully, it won't be
my home for very long.

Yeah, I really hope so,
for your sake.

That place was
a little terrifying.

And I'm sorry
if I wasn't more

sympathetic to your
situation in the first place.

It's okay.

I faced my fears long ago.

I had to.

Are you getting conned into
breaking up with Ruthie?

No, they've
already broken up.

It was a mutual decision.

Kevin and Harry and I
took the bird Ruthie found

to a rescue station.

It's, uh, going to live.

Oh, that's good news.

So you're not getting married?

Nah, I figured
if God would go

to that much trouble
for a bird,

surely He'll find
a home for me.

Simon made dinner.

Well, not exactly.

The Chinese made dinner.

We love Chinese.

Me, too.

So, how'd it go?

It's still going,
but it's going well.

Leanne's mother

and the baby's father
and his parents

are all there, and...

they'll work it out.

Not tonight,
but they'll work it out.

I just want to say
that it's a beautiful thing

being married
to a man like Kevin.

And knowing that if at any time
I ever need help,

I have all of you in my life.

I hope you remember that
as you go back to school.

I know that.

I mean...

I'm going to come back.

I plan on coming back
every chance I get.

Camden residence.


They said to tell everyone
it's a boy,

a healthy boy.

The mommy's fine.


To life.
