Season 04 Episode 11
Episode Title: "I'm In Love"

Happy Valentine's Day!



- You ready?
- Yeah.

I'm so excited, Paula.

I just... I know I'm making
the right decision.

You're gonna share your true
love with the whole world.

And it doesn't get
any bigger than that.

Come on, we're late,
and they're waiting for us.

- Okay.
- Okay.

Man, leave it to Rebecca

to make a big production
out of everything.


I'm just glad I don't have
to spend Valentine's Day

with my wife.

I think it's exciting
and romantic.

I love a big reveal.

Like, check this out.

Ah. Oh, solid.

I thought there were
sleeves there.

Okay, this is real,
this is real.


my heart is beating
so quickly.

Okay, listen, you
can do this.

I will be right here,

and if you get nervous,
you look at me. Okay?


And hey,

enjoy this moment.

It took a long
time to get here.


Yeah, it did.

Ooh, thank you so much for
seeing me on such short notice

and first thing in the morning.

I keep my Valentine's Days
open for walk-ins.

Bigtrigger day.

Yeah, so, I'm in a bit
of a panic, Dr. Akopes.

Uh, I went on three dates
with three guys,

and I have no clarity
on the situation.

It's killing me.
I'm not eating,

I'm not sleeping, and those
are usually my two best events.

I just, I have to pick a guy
by the end of Valentine's Day,

and, uh, that's today.

Okay, Rebecca, I hear you...

and I think I have the answer.

An answer?


Oh, thank God.
You usually want me

to figure things out on my own,

which I think is
such a waste of money.

Not today.

Today I have
a wonderful treatment for you.

A treatment?

- Is it another pill?
- Nope.

I'm gonna show you
your future.

- Oh, you're not Dr. Akopian.
- Mm-mmm.

- You're the Dream Ghost.
- Mm-hmm.

- I'm asleep right now.
- Mm-hmm.

This morning
you decided

to try one
of Josh's green juices

and had to run to the bathroom,
fell asleep on the toilet.

That's where you are right now.

Yeah, that sounds like me.

I can show you
anything you want.

What would you like to see?

Who I should choose.

Show me that.


Oh, my God.

It's Greg.

Of course I should choose Greg.

Ugh, we're so happy. Look at us.

Wait, what's wrong? What's that
empty and sad look on my face?

Do I not love Greg?
Does he not make me happy?

O-Okay, who should
I choose, then?



I see what you're doing.

Yep, I should be with Nathaniel.

Show me the future
with Nathaniel, please.

Of course.

Yeah. Yeah.

Oh, my gosh...

- Oh, my God.
- Yeah, what is that?

- Okay.
- I definitely want this.

Look what I found. Oh, is that...

- It's Baby Ruth Gator Ginsberg!
- Where did you get this?

- I got it at this random store...
- Oh, my gosh, look at that.


I mean, look at it.

It's Nathaniel.

I should choose Nathaniel.

- Of course.
- Oh! - Uh, okay.

And we look so happy.

I love you.

Oh, no.

No, no, no, no. There's, there's
that-that look again.

That sad, empty look.

So... okay,

does this mean it's Josh?

Who knows?

You're so vague.

Am I?


That is very...

All right, I mean,
I guess you guys,

you guys ate a lot
of your waffles...

- Which is very good, funny...
- Babe, they're both delicious.


It's Josh. Yeah.

This is happiness.

Did you fill out

the form
for the Sacramento trip?

Oh, yeah, absolutely.

Why didn't we just
start with this one?

It's great.

It's gonna be so fun.
It's gonna be so fun.

Here we go. Come on.

- All right, honey, I'll see you later... oh...
- Anyone want their...

- Walk, walk, walk...
- No dinosaur, okay.

Bye, bye, bye.

See you.


No, no, no, no...

There's that look again.


So, clearly, I'm not happy
in any of these futures.


I don't know.

Do you know?

You're useless.

All right, I'm just gonna
figure this out myself. Hey.

Hey! Hello, hi.

Hey, what's wrong?

What's wrong?
What's wrong with Josh?

Why don't you love him?

Why aren't you happy?

Ugh, I need answers.

Just... come on.

Just... For a spirit,
you are slow.

Okay. What's the problem?

Is Nathaniel cheating on you?

Uh... me? Us?


Damn it, I need answers.

Come on. Come on, come on,
come on, come on, come on.

Tell me.


Tell me why you're so sad.

Why aren't you happy with Greg?

Huh? I mean,
what's wrong with him?

There's nothing wrong with Greg.

Or Nathaniel or Josh.

They're all wonderful.

Okay, then why am I not happy,
with any of them?

Don't-don't I love them?

You do love them.

The problem is,

you don't know
who you are.

No, that's not true.

Stupid Dream Ghost.

What a dumb dream.

Oh, I'm not done.
I'm gonna be here a while.

Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

Hi. Hi, hi, how are you? Mm, hey.

Okay. I got your text.

What's wrong? I got
here as fast as I could.

Nothing's wrong.
I'm really excited.

Look, I read online that there
are these new expungement rules,

and I checked,
and my shoplifting charges

are eligible to be
stricken from my record.

Oh, wow, oh, that's great news.

Yeah, it could change my life.
I wouldn't be a felon anymore,

- no more parole.
- Mm-hmm.

So I just need you
to help me file the casework

and we can get
the process started,

- you know?
- I'm so sorry, I can't.

This new job that I have,
I'm exclusive to my firm,

and I checked my contract
and I just, I can't

do any outside cases anymore.
I'm so sorry.

But I've already talked
to Nathaniel, Sunil and Rebecca

about taking over
all of my cases.

But you know my case.

And you care more than anyone.

I know.

But, hey, look,

I get it. We're friends.
I'm happy for you.

You love that job.

I'll work with someone else.

I am so sorry, Hanifa.

Damn it.

So, did you hear from Rebecca?

If I had heard from Rebecca,
would I be here talking to you?

Uh, probably. Yeah.
You're a bit needy.

She said she was
supposed to let me know

by the end of the day, so...

What does that mean?

Is she gonna call? Text?

Send a rose over here in per...
I-I'm unsure

about the mechanics
of this thing.

Which is a bit annoying.

You helped set up
this whole three date thing

and you don't know how Rebecca
was supposed to respond?

Eh, that's not the fun part.

Wow. Having a beer

at 10:00 a.m.

Unlike you.

Waiting for Rebecca to decide,
it's just killing me, man.

Yeah, I wonder
how she'll tell you.

She's kind of dramatic.
She might just call you all together

and pop out
of a giant cheesecake.

Are those cheesecakes
they jump out of?

Well, whatever she decides,

she'll do it in a great way,
because she's the woman I love

and she's great.

Oh... Oh, dear.

I just want to be in love.

Get married, have babies.
I'm ready now.

She has to pick me.

Oh, God, I'm so cold.

- Hold me.
- Okay,

I-I will not hold you.

But I do have an extra
fleece in my car.

- Thank you.
- Yeah.

I've been
trying to distract myself

from thinking about Rebecca
and her decision with my work,

but half-assing cases
at a nothing firm

is just not doing it
for me anymore.

I'm sorry, should I not
say that to you guys?

It's fine.

Daddy and Papa understand.

Sir? I just need a signature
on this file.

But while my bosses are here,
I did want to ask,

what is the company policy
on fun hair?

- I don't think we have one.
- No.

I was thinking about
growing my hair long.

Not for a man bun,

but for a sweet, sweet pony.

- Oh.
- Ohhhh.

It's gonna take about
a year to grow out.

And there are gonna be some
awkward stages along the way,

- so I need your blessings.
- Yes.

- Mm-hmm.
- Yes?

I've had the same haircut
since 1998,

so I don't care.

You make it seem great.
Thank you so much.

I have nothing
for you to sign,

I just wanted to ask
that question.

Giddyup, pony!

Anyway, guys, what do you think?
What do I do?

Well, maybe take a break.
Like a sabbatical.

Oh, that's a
great idea.

I've always wanted
to go to Israel.

Don't sabbaticals
have to do with Israel?

Well, I mean the word "sabbath"
and "rabbi" are both in there.

For what it's worth,

I think Rebecca's
gonna pick you.

'Cause you're the best.

And you don't have
any venereal diseases.

Not that I know of.

But check for human
papilloma virus.

It's more common
than you think,

and most men do not
experience symptoms.

Okay, great.
Great, tip, thank you, Bert.

You're right.
I'm probably just...

...stressing about Rebecca,
and my life and my job

are not as lame, boring
and sad as they seem.

Again, no offense.

Honey, you here?


Oh, hi. I am so happy
you're here.

Okay, look.
I know

today is your
Valentine's decision day

and you have a lot
on your mind,

but I need your help.

I can't work at the county
jail because of my new job,

and it is killing me.

And I know that you and
Nathaniel are covering

a lot of it, but.

I really care about the work
that we're doing down there,

and I just...

What do I do?


Well, you could just
ask Julia to start

a pro bono arm of the firm
and offer free representation.

- That's a thing?
- It's definitely a thing.

Lot of firms do it.

Hey, did you just
solve my problem?

I mean... I hope so.

That's great!

Because, you know,
sometimes I

ask your advice on stuff,
and then you just

talk about yourself
and... but this time...

- Oh, I did that right?!
- Yes!

Oh, cool!
So proud of you.


What else can I say
that's helpful?

Well, hey, Paula,

never give up on
what you believe in.

Well, I will not.

- Great.
- Okay.

So, is it appropriate to
talk about myself now? Yes.

Great. Okay.
So, just now,

I was in the bathroom, and
I was asleep on the toilet...

- Multitasking. Smart.
- Thank you.

And I had just
the worst dream.

Aw. So, I dreamt
that I had a future

with each of
the three guys.

But in no future
was I happy.

And then Bride Rebecca
turned to me and said...

There were three Rebeccas,
one of them was, like,

a really pretty bride...

And she turned to me,
and she said

that the reason
I wasn't happy with them

was because I don't
know who I am.

And then I woke up!

So I don't know
what that meant,

'cause that's crazy,

Well, do you?

- Of course I do!
- Okay.

I mean, God, no
one's worked harder

on themselves than
I have, you know?

I got workbooks and meds and
therapy coming out the wazoo.

Yeah. But...

you're Rebecca.

So, I mean, those thoughts

are coming from you.

Damn it.

You're right.

I have no idea
who I am.

You and my unconscious...

As manifested by a very
pretty bride... are right.

Oh, Cookie.

Uh, how?

How is this possible?

I've done so much work.

And now, I'm more
confused than I ever was.

And it's
Valentine's Day,

and it's already...
What time is it?

11 o'clock.

11 o'clock, Paula!

Okay, it's... I mean, 11:00 a.m.,
it's, uh, the day is young.

No, just, 11 o'clock
is a significant time.

If we were in
a musical,

this is where I would perform
my big 11 o'clock number.

Really? You
don't know... okay.

An 11 o'clock number is
a big showstopping number

with some sort
of thematic revelation,

and it usually happens
around 11:00 p.m.,

because shows used to
start at 8:30, but now

they start earlier
for some reason.

Uh, okay.

What do I do?


What I think that
you sh...


Woo-hoo, hello?


What are you doing?

Give me one sec, one second.

Oh, I get it.

You're doing that thing
that you do.

All right.

Rebecca? Hello?



Next up at our open mic,

we have a lady
who is here to reveal

the biggest decision
of her life.

So it shouldn't be
self-indulgent at all.

I suffer from insomnia, and I
think we've just found the cure.

George, I can't see.

Oh, I'm sorry, Maya.

Is my lustrous ponytail
blocking your view?

Yes. You know, in the year since
you grew that lustrous ponytail,

you've gotten a big ego.

Well, I'm sorry.
But it's a part of who I am.

I call her.

"Raven's Nest."

- Shut up, come on.
- All right, everybody.

Next step. Please help me welcome
to the stage

Regina Nota Brunch.

Yeah, I clearly wrote
"Rebecca Nora Bunch" on the card.

Oh. Do you want to do this,
or do you want to do that?

Hi, everyone. Um...

Happy Valentine's Day.

Thank you so much
for all being here

on this very, very, very
important holiday.


one year ago today, I made
a very important decision.

That's the reason
you're here, of course.

But before I get to that,
I, uh...

I just want to say how
inspired I've been

by everyone in this room,
and their journeys

over the past year.

And I'm just talking about
my friends, not the other people

who are here for the other acts
in the open mic. Sorry.

Valencia and Beth.

You two took a big step,
and you did it your own way.

Will you?

Valencia, yes.

That was
the perfect proposal.

It was exactly what
I wanted; a moment...

just for us.

Is that a drone
outside the window?

Of course it's a drone,
what are we doing?

Right, of course.

Wait, show 'em the ring.

We did it. We did it!

Darryl and April.

You two created
a blended family.

April adopted Hebecca.

Oh, wow.

- Darryl.
- I know.

- That's amazing.
- Thank you.

Wow, so you're gonna
have three kids

in one house, that's a lot.



Mm-hmm. It's that super sperm.

Oh, we are so excited.

We already picked out
some names, we've got.

Harryl and Hapril

and Hannison and...

I'm kidding.


By the way,
we just found out,

so don't tell anyone.

Lips are sealed.

And now there's another
baby! Congratulations... Oof.

Oh, I wasn't supposed to
say anything, I'm so sorry.

Why do you tell
her things?

I honestly have no idea.

Heather and Hector.

You also ha have
a new addition to your family.

One we all love and adore.

Shout out to your new hot tub.

Oh, yeah.

Oh... ooh.

My back... Ah...

Oh, my back. Ah.

Do you want to see a picture?

Sometimes she drives me crazy,

but eight jets,
four light settings,

jumbo cup holders?
She's perfect.

She has her
daddy's hair.

- In her filter.
- Yeah.

And White Josh.

Something happened...

with you this year...

that was really important...

I want to say
it involves the circus.

My a-apartment burned down.

Along with everything I own.

On the same day that

my childhood home also burned
down in the same wildfire.

- That was it.
- Yeah.

I was at the circus when
I found out that that happened.

And I left the circus,
as you recall...

...'cause the circus was over.


I'm sorry about that.

I never really
came around on you.

Never will.


"Respect" is not
an appropriate response there.

- Respect.
- Okay.

And Paula...

...what you did...

A pro bono arm

of the firm will allow us
to represent

women who are forgotten

or outright mistreated
by the system.

I did a lot of research
and I put together

a proposal for you.

Um, many firms have
these programs and they offer

great PR and some
tax breaks, as well.

What an amazing ask.

It's so indicative
of why we hired you.

Oh, great.


Oh, I am so relieved.

But we're busy

with the cases we already
have and we're trying

to make the most
money for the partners.

You understand.

Yeah, I know.

Um, I really do.

Uh, and-and...

...the thing is, is, uh...

and I say this with
so much affection,

um, either we do this, or...

I quit.


I love this job.

But I am not gonna walk around
with a hole in my heart

because there are people
out there who need me

and I'm sitting up here
on my ass in a fancy suit.

I have to be true
to who I am... inside.



I loved it here.


Paula, wait.

Let's talk.

Damn, Paula.

That was badass.

Which brings us
to another person.

The person I care about
very much.


he's really the reason I'm here.

Josh Chan.

Josh, you really are
the reason I'm here tonight.

I know you've been waiting

for me to make
a decision today.



Some day you're gonna
find a girl

who is perfect for you.

And honestly, I feel like
it'll happen soon

because you are ready

for a serious relationship.

You mean so much to me,
I hope you know that.

But I'm sorry.



Can I have a minute?

Of course, yeah.

Without you here?


Yes. Absolutely. Mm-hmm. Hmm.


I'll just go,
I'll go in my...

But I'm gonna give
you your space. Um...

You sure I can have Estrella?

Of course,
you really forged

a beautiful bond
with number 28.

Well, I got to run, uh...

I got a magic club meeting.

We let
in some more members

and George is having
a party to celebrate, so, yeah.

- Well, that sounds fun.
- Yeah.

See you.

Good-bye, Josh Chan.

I'm shocked that I'm doing this.

But $80 a month is a great deal.

Oh, we're gonna have
so much fun.

I'm a great roommate.

Question: do you own a vibrator?

You will never know.

I should stop
asking people that.

Josh, I moved
to West Covina for you.

And I will never forget that.

And I'm so, so happy for you.

That you found what you wanted.

With a little magic.

You found love.

They met in a magic club,
that's why I'm saying magic.

Oh, she's sweet.


She's also a lot.

I know,
but in a good way.

And then, Nathaniel.

Okay, Nathaniel.

So what I want to say

- is that...
- Ah.


Uh, based on your words, tone,

and body language,
I'm guessing...

we're not riding off
into the sunset

on the horses I rented, are we?

There are horses?
Where are the horses?

In the stable.

With the champagne.

And the giant diamond.

Okay, um...

You have to know,
you haveto know

that the-the times
that we've spent together

have been some of the best
of my life.

- But, I...
- You don't, you don't have to explain.

You only get one life.

And you got to live that
the way you want.

I think everyone deserves that.

I'm quitting, Dad.

I don't want to work
for you anymore,

or anyone, for a while.

No, you can't forbid it.

I'm a grown-up man.


Oh, yeah? Well, I love you.

Thanks for your support, guys.
It really has meant a lot to me.

- Of course.
- Of course.

- Jinx.
- Jinx.

Now, if you'll excuse me,

I need to see a man...

about a monkey.

Speaking Spanish...


¿Cómo estás?

You upended your life.

You changed everything.

But, unlike me,

you did it for
the right reasons.

And I am in awe of you.

And finally...

Hi, Greg.

Greg, uh...

Uh, Greg, I, uh...
I don't know...

what I can say to you
that I haven't already said.

So tell me. Yes or no.

Just say it fast.

I... So,
before I tell you,

I just, I want you to...

I want you to understand
the choice I'm making.

- Okay.
- Okay.

So, this morning,

I had a terrible dream
while on the toilet.

This is starting off well.

Right. And then Paula came over.

Trying to follow.

Greg, you deserve
a full explanation,

and here
it is. So...

Right, toilet, Paula came over,

I helped her through an issue,

and then she asked me

probably the most
important question

anyone's ever asked me
in my life.

Rebecca, hello? Hey!


What are you doing?

Uh, sorry,
nothing, nothing.

No, that's
not nothing.

That's... You're staring off
into space, like you do.

You do that a lot.


what's happening
when you do that?

I don't want to tell you.
It's weird.

Oh, come on, any weirder
than the many, many weird things

you and I have done
since we met?

I've just... I don't know...
I've never told anybody,

except for the Dream Ghost
and Dr. Phil.


What the hell? Okay.

When I stare off into space...

...I'm imagining myself
in a musical number.

That's how I sometimes see
big moments in my life,

as musical numbers.

And because I do that,
so does the show.

And by show, I mean the very
popular BPD workbook acronym,

"Simply Having
Omniscient Wishes."

So, yeah, I...

I see myself in these songs.

Wait, I'm confused. What?

All right.
Paula, can I show you something?

You can show me anything.

- Okay.
- Okay.

Look off with me
like this.

Do I have to be thinking
anything while I...

- Just Okay.
- Just look off.



What is all this?

This is me.

Okay, these are all

of the identities that
I've tried to fit into.


So this is all
the weird and freaky

and dumb and useless stuff
that is my life

and has led me to nothing.

It's not nothing.


it's beautiful.

What do you mean, beautiful?
I can't focus here.

Let's go back to reality.

Okay, wait, I'm sorry,
what do you mean, beautiful?


Those-those songs that you
imagine, when you come back,

you've always figured
something out, right?

I mean, yeah,

I guess I've processed
something, sure.

And have you ever
written them down?

Written down my-my mind songs?

No. Why would
I do that?

I mean, the-the closest
I came to that, I guess,

was during
the community theater revue

when I changed those lyrics.

And you loved that, right?

- Yeah.
- Okay.

Rebecca, just...
get me back there.

Uh, okay, uh...

Baby, it's here.

What you're looking for,

the way to know
who you are,

it's here.

These songs in your head,
you have to write them down.

That's how you do it.

Write them down.

Write down the songs.

Write down the songs.
Okay. Okay.

- Uh, I need paper!
- You need a pen!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Now get started.

This is gonna be
so much fun.

I know it
sounds crazy.

Writing down the flights
of fancy in my head.

I mean, you know,

what even is that?
But, Greg,

I've been doing it
for the past couple hours,

and I think Paula's right,
this is what I need to do.

And you need to do this alone?


I think that's how this works.

And I don't know
how long it's gonna take.

Okay, I hear you, Rebecca.
You just got to know that...

I'm not gonna wait,
not anymore.

I know.

Greg, when I look at you,

I see someone
who's ahead of me,

and who has
been ahead of me.

Your recovery,

and then your love
for Serrano's, I...

I want that for myself.

She wants to own
an Italian restaurant?

Oh, come on,
you know what she means.

God, I wish you
were not still single.

I will not feel safe
until one of you is married.

Oh, shh.
Just let her talk.

And so, over the past year,

I have done some really new
and really scary things.

"When writing songs,
the most important thing

"is to learn to tell your story,

"not a story you get
from the outside world,

but your own story."

AJ, this book's,
like, amazing!

You borrowed my Dartmouth
sweatshirt again?

There are chocolate
stains all over it.


I'll just get him a Harvard
sweatshirt, it's better.

Okay, the best songs...

How many years of piano

- have you had?
- None.

What other instruments
do you play?


What do you know
about piano?

There appear to be
black keys and white keys.


showing up is the first step.

Yeah, it is.
Let's do this.

Can I call you Rick?

Uh, sure.
Is that your name?

No, but call me Rick.

Okay. Thanks, Rick.

Yeah, uh, that's...
That was, um...

- Was it better than last week?
- Sure.

Okay, great, 'cause I've been
working really hard.

Yeah. You're getting
most of the notes.

- You're getting there.
- Yes!

- It's just gonna take a while.
- Great.


I don't know about that last
lyric. I don't think it's good.

Oh, I liked it.

Take it easy on yourself.


I think it's catchy,
and I have great taste.

Really? Oh, yeah, keep going.

You're doing great, honey.

Will you stop
mentioning that hot tub?

I'm gonna look really snatched
for the wedding.

And, look, I don't
know if what I'm doing yet

is any good,
but all I know is that

I can finally
show the outside world

what's been inside of me
this whole time.

All of it. All of the-the
nuances and the gray areas.

It's not just about the act
of writing. It's about how,

when I'm doing that,

when I'm telling my own story...

...for the first time
in my life,

I am truly happy.

It's like I just
met myself.

Like I just
met Rebecca.

I came to this town
to find love,

and I did.

I love every person
in this room.

Each and every one of you.

Again, just talking to my
friends, not the other people

here for the open mic night.

But, you know what, screw it,
I love you guys, too.

Love that sweater.

And now,

for the first time in my life,
I can say that

maybe I'm finally ready

for the other kind of love.

You know, the kind
we talk about a lot more.

And, hell, it-it might be with
someone in this room.

But whoever it's with,
it won't be

"ending up" with someone,

because romantic love
is not an ending,

not for me or for
anyone else here.

It's just a-a part
of your story,

a part of who you are.

And so,


here we go.

This is a song I wrote.
