Jenny's birthday gives everyone something to celebrate. Music Joe crashes Jenny's party. Nurse Joe and Christopher try to plan the perfect cake for Jenny. Cop Joe and Amy take an important step in their relationship.

Previously on Ordinary Joe...

Her name is Amy. We had a bid.

I thought about that time we met.

I want to find whoever tried to kill Congressman Diaz.

I found something strange about Wayne Coleman.

Amy works so hard already. I can't imagine

when she takes over.

I don't want a family right now.

Is this something permanent?

Can you find a person for me?

- Who? - My son.

Jen, let's talk, don't we?

The partners want you to finish your law degree.

I have night classes and I work part-time?

This could be tough, you'll be in Atlanta.


Bye, Mom.

I love you.

First day of the rest of your life, Jen.

It's time to think about your goals, your dreams,

what you want to be.

I don't want to be a doctor like you, Daddy.

I want to be a lawyer. Same as RBG.

That's my girl.

- Come on, open it. - Right.

Okay, how's it going?

Of course.

- Of course. - Ent o ...

He's fine. And, I have to go.

She's gone. Let's get started.

What have you planned for the cake this year?

I want to do it.

- Legal, or what? - or Apollo-Soyuz.

One capsule will have chocolate, the other will have vanilla.

Ambitious. You inside.

Of course.

What else do we need besides Cake Boss?

Are you and Mom getting divorced?

- What? - Philip's parents divorced,

and I read an article that says that divorce fees

will increase because of Covid.

Why are you reading articles about this? No!

Listen me. It's going to be okay, right?

No need to make a fuss.

- Identity, sir. - Detective Kimbreau.

It's just gonna be you, me, Lucas and your dad.

Coleman is not in the bedroom. The nurse is examining him.

Mom, what kind of cake do you want?

I don't know. Whatever you want.

At school, your mom liked a lot of cake.

- What's that? - Cake with a lot of stuff.

I'll call you guys later, shall I?

Sorry, I couldn't help it.

Happy birthday in advance. You have a beautiful family.


- Did you stay with Ray? - We fell in love.

Of course, that's what I meant...

And you? Never got married?

I like my life without complications.

It's a way of seeing yourself.

You haven't changed a thing, have you, Joe?

I'm seeing someone. We go out a few times already

with the girl who saw me at the date, Amy Kindel n.

Sorry. Wayne Coleman is in surgery.

He won't be able to answer questions for a few days.


Looks like we'll be stuck together a while longer.

It seems so.

Ms. Lauria, Frank Kimbreau. We talked on the phone.

Thanks for coming early, and thanks for the discretion.

My God, it's you.

Hi, I'm Joe. Can I call you Beth?

Of course, of course.

When you called, I didn't know if it was real,

but here you are in the flesh.


Beth, engra�ado.

It's the name of a song I'm doing right now.

It's so warm and inviting.

- S�rio?
- Sim.

Anyway, thanks for this meeting.

I want to get in touch with my son.

If your agency can talk to his adoptive parents...

Of course, I need proof of paternity.

- A DNA test? - No, no.

Just your name on the birth certificate.

I researched Kimbreau before you arrived,

but I didn't find anything.

Tente a m�e biol�gica,
Jennifer Banks.

It was around February 2012.

Right. Let's see what we can do.

Of course.

Here it is.

M�e de crian�a,
Jennifer Banks.

Birth certificate, February 18, 2012.


- What? - I'm sorry, but...

Your name is not on the certificate.

Whose is it?

Nobody. It's blank.

But I'm the father, you know.

- She told me. - I do believe you.

But without the name on the certificate,

I can't contact the foster family for you.

I am really sorry.

But do you think we can take a selfie?

- He used to smile. - It's fine.

- Who is the team again? - Don't worry about it.

We'll hire new people, rebuild,

will be your team.

Just think about your official statement, okay?

Of course.

- New campaign headquarters. - For a while.

I can hardly believe it, but here we go.

Can you read it to me?

It's my speech for the Friday event.

- Be sincere. - Yeah, sure.

I face.

He's so cute. You have your big head.

Great observation, detective. He has a big brain.

what am I thinking?

Baked bean pizza, just like your mother, right?

Mal and I are going to include it in the kids' menu.

- More voice or focus. - No, no.

I don't care for nostalgia.

I'm not eating this at 11:00 in the morning.

- Waiting. Mal loves. - .

She's 5 months pregnant.

Truth. She eats anything.

How was the meeting with Amy?

If that's what we're talking about, I'll take my coffee.

and my pizza to another place.

You're being evasive, means you fucked up.

It was great. .

It may have a future.

- So you're freaking out. - I'm not freaking out.

I'm just...

I don't just want to be with this girl.

- She's... - Amazing? Special? unique?

- Calm. - Guy,

when did you last seriously date?

I don't know why it's so hard for you, right?

But try to do it differently.

How to let her into your life.

Says the guy, happily married to a woman, that I love,

but who has known her since high school.

That's exactly what I'm saying,

because I... I'm about to be a father, Joe,

and even though I'm sad, I'll live by the table through you

e a incr�vel Amy.

I can help you?

Amy, right? We met at the meeting.

I'm Jenny Banks. I'm from the Attorney's Office.

Yes I remember.

So you're not here to volunteer.

In fact, we are investigating the attack on Congressman Diaz.

- Are you working with Joe? - Like that.

Okay, well, yeah. Anything to help you and Joe.

Looks like Wayne Coleman has made a big donation.

for the Diaz campaign in 2019.

I just want to understand how he went from being a supporter

for aggressor.

Did you know he was a donor?

No. Look, luckily, we have a lot of donors.

And luckily they're not all crazy.

Do you two know each other?

Yes, we studied together in Syracuse.

I mean, we didn't cross paths ...

But we know Joe Kimbreau.

Officer Kimbreau.

Yeah, I dated him in college and you're dating him now, right?

That's what it looked like at the meeting.

I mean, we only went out a few times.

- He's a great guy. - Yes, he is.

I just want to make Jenny happy, you know?

I want to rock this birthday.

- I want something big. - Here, chef.

I know it's bacon, but I only taste salt.

Let's go. Thanks. Yes big.

Yes big. We don't go out for a weekend...

Just the two of us in 10 years, right?

So I thought about going into town.

See some shows. Staying at the Plaza.

Or not, but like... I don't know. what's the cool place

- that hipsters stay? - Guy. Don't say hipsters.

Look, don't go to town either, okay?

If traveling on the weekend,

needs to be far away, right?

Far away.

Resort e Spa Shoreline?

- Sim.
- Conhe�o Peter Ruskin.

He owes me. I'll get it for you for the weekend.

No, Eric, I'm not asking...

I don't care. I'm giving.

Plus, it's what your lovely wife deserves.

Thanks man.

This is the concept. Stripped but electrifying.

Giant, but small and intimate.

A local bar, but in a studio.

How about a local bar at a local bar.

It's not helping, Joe.

Show it to Amy. See what she thinks.

Give me a minute.

So I've been thinking a lot about the birth certificate.

Yes, you should stop doing that.

Which . There has to be a way to put my name there.

Whatever value it is. You have to fix it.

Look, I don't know if I want to clean up.

When will you tell your wife?

I don't like to hide things from her, right?

But she's still dealing with losing the babies.

You're running a campaign. no need to know now

until I have something to know.

You're not the only one I take care of here.

When to say "I am"

Amy became my niece,

Which means she's family.

I think she has a right to know.

Lily, isso � incr�vel.

I can have you all with me,

even Otter.

Hey, pat Otter's belly for me

when I arrive at home? I love you guys.

All right, guys, time to go.

This man needs to do his job.

Okay, this is how it will work,

you focus on yourself

and I'll do everything else, right?

I'll be back in the morning.

I love you dear.

I love you.

- The doctor is with you. - Nurse.

Even better.

- Sure, crian as. - I love voc s.

We love you, Daddy.

How are you?

It's the most time I spent

with my kids in months.

nothing like almost dying

for lembr -what is important.


Okay, the physiotherapist comes later,

but let's work on your core,

See if we can get the balance back?

Raise those arms.

That's good. It's getting stronger.

When did this tremor start?

I don't know.

It's been a while.

Just the risk of the campaign.

Lack of sleep and...

endless handshakes.


Okay, let's try again, okay?

- Do you have a family, Joe? - I have.

I married my college girlfriend.

- And we have a son. - Enjoy them.

I didn't always do that.

You know we're not alone, right?

Now we are.

And this story about you dating Joe Kimbreau?

As long as you're married, Congressman,

I can have a date.

Okay, that's fair.

But Joe saved my life, right? He is my hero.

Maybe he's saving me now.

How about we have dinner tomorrow night?

Just the two of us.

- S�rio?
- Sim.

- On a weekday. - I know.

I miss you.

- Have you read my speech? - Yes. It's great.

That's it?

I mean, it's great...

politician speech.

I'm not disdaining. I... It's a compliment.

I'm just nervous.

I've never been on this side before.

What if I freeze?

Now, stage fright...

Stage fright is something I can help with.

Tomorrow night when you go on stage,

choose a person and connect with them.

It's what I do. I'm trying to find you.

I sing for you.

And then other people just disappear.

You will rock.

You're going to introduce me, right?

I need that Kimbreau warming magic.

Of course, I would be honored.

Frankly speaking, I think dr. Hodges

You're missing something neurological.

The congressman's tremors are steady and constant.

The spinal injury is below the arms.

It seems unlikely that this is the origin.

I suggested that dr. Hodges asked for an MRI,

but he refused. Maybe you could ask.

I admire your tenacity, Joe, but I agree with Hodges.

Let's deal with recovery first,

start from it.


What do you plan for my daughter's birthday?

I love my daughter, Joe,

but I want to know when Jen will stop

of sleeping at my guest house 3 nights a week.

- Doug... - You need to sort this out.

This is between Jenny and me.

I made a reservation at Eleven Madison Park

Friday night, both of you. It's on me.

We'll be out of town, but thanks.

- Great. - You can give it to her.

Give her a nice card. She will love it.

If you want to give your daughter a present,

give it yourself.

Do you have a child?

And you have a grandson.

Since Jenny told me at the meeting

I can't get it out of my head.

Where is he? Who is he?

I can't believe there is

a little boy somewhere out there

who's like you, who's like your father.

How old would he be now? About nine? Yes, this.

Don't you want to meet him?

Do I want to meet my own grandson?

Of course.

But he has his own family.

Yes but...

You know you want to teach him piano.

What if no one is teaching you?

The child needs to learn to play the piano.

Joe, he has his own life.

Honey, if you want to go that way,

have to be careful.


I will.

Dad, you look ridiculous.

All right, this thing can handle 136 pounds.

I can't watch this.

- I don't blame you. - What?

- Chris. - Cara.

- Then you take him to the bathroom. - Yes.

How do you get his pants off?

He's already out of them.

Is he hanging bare ass?

I thought it best to save that part.

- Wow, I get it, I think. - Nice.

Do I pass your nightly babysitting test?

- Do you trust me? - Mom, it's not about you.

This is really, really important.

- I know. - For both of us not being here,

I know Jenny will be worried.

I will be worried.

And this is the tip of the iceberg.

We never allow ourselves to even think

about doing something like this before.

So thank you.

It's gonna be the best birthday present ever.

This place has it all, spa treatments,

heated lap pool...

Don't leave her so busy and have no time to talk.

No, let's talk during the couples massage.

- E a�?
- Est� �timo.

This speech would work for any politician.

That's good.

That wasn't a compliment.

You're not speechwriter anymore, Amy.

Most importantly, you are not just any policy.

Well, you don't know.

That's what's scaring me.

Don't be scared.

You are a maker of stars.

You are the reason I am where I am.

And let's be honest.

Joe also has you to thank for his career.

You see things in people that they don't see in themselves.

And I see it in you.

Tell them who you are.

- Hi. - Hi, Amy.

- You're not coming. - I am really sorry. Me...

Regina invited her parents, and I...

Do you know Bobby? I need to hang up.

Wait, wait.

I feel bad.

I know you care about me.

And I care about you too.


saw something in me and took a chance.

You were with me after my divorce, but...

I don't know if I can take this anymore.

- I love you. - You love your wife.

My wife and I haven't slept together for ten months.

I just have to go through this election.

What about next time?

In what world does it work, Bobby?

- Sincerely. - Don't start making a case.

- We'll get there. - I gotta go.

I'm just saying you're addicted

in taking pictures of the top of the key.

- This is never going to happen. - What are you talking about?

- Dude, pick up. - All right.

- Hello? - Hi,

I know it's last minute,

but I wanted to know if you're free tonight.

Maybe you want to meet me for dinner.

- Of course. - Excellent.

No. I don't...

I mean, no, I'm not free.

I'm not, because I have a family dinner tonight.


if you want to come...

Sure, it sounds fun. I don't want to intrude.

No, no, no. It's routine.

Everything is fine. Great.

Great, I'll send you the address.

Everything is fine. Goodbye.

Dude, did you invite Amy to roast night?

- What? - Why did you invite a girl

to meet the whole family after two dates?

Sorry. I thought you said...

I don't know why you would pressure yourself.

Or pressure her.

You said to let her into my life.

I did, Joe, but not all at once. Guy.

Should I call and cancel?

No, no. What...

How are you so bad at this, man?

Just don't talk to me, okay?

I feel like I'm watching "Swingers".

--Joe. --Sim?

For the concept to work,

it needs to look like you're playing something.

Of course.


- Excuse me. - Which...

Joe Kimbreau.


It's Darren, Jenny's husband.

I thought you called Jenny's cell phone.

I didn't know it was the house number.

It's you. She's in the bath.

So, I saw your name, so I thought I'd pick up.


Cool, well...

I need to say it's very nice of you

call on her birthday.

Clear. For sure.

Yes. Happy birthday, Jenny.


In fact, you know, I don't even know if it's free,

but you could tell her in person.

We're having a birthday party for her today at 6:00.

I can't think of a bigger surprise than you.


Of course.

Can't wait to see you.


Better stop there, birthday boy.

It's conquering the world. Warren Law is waiting for you.

I still haven't accepted.

I do, I really do.

I've always wanted this since I was a kid, I just...

I don't know if I can make it work

with my family.

I bet you'll find a way to have your cake and eat it.

In fact.



I loved.

Happy Anniversary Jenny.

We'll miss you when you go to Atlanta.

- Answer in my office. - Thanks.

- Hi. - I know you said 6 pm

but we need an extra hour for cake.

- But it will be worth it. - Clear.

So Chris told him that his mother

Will come to sleep next week. What is the reason?

It's a surprise.

It was a surprise.

Joe, yes me count.

Eric found a way.

Weekend in Montauk. Shoreline Resort and Spa.

- Happy birthday. - Very cool, Joe,

but I don't know if we're at that part yet.

I don't know if we haven't arrived.

- What about Christopher? - I know, I'll figure it out.

Only 2 nights out and I made it for my mother

o Manual-do-Christopher.

She knows about the equipment, she'll handle it.

How will she handle Chris' feeding tube?

Or come him in the middle of the night?

He can have pressure ulcers and they take months to heal.

Jenny, stop the train of worry.

I wanted to, believe me.

It's just a weekend.

Jen, we need to relax, have fun.

Yes? Our marriage needs this.

Sorry, I don't feel...

comfortable to leave it.

I'm really trying, Jenny.

I know you are and I appreciate it.

I just won't have fun.

Alright, alright, I'll cancel.

Let me add more wine.

- Thanks. - You're welcome.

Uncle Frank, what do you mean? Want to get her drunk?

I think she knows how to take care of herself.

You don't want to compete with me, Frank.

- No? - See, I can choose well.

In fact, I called first.

- And we appreciate it, Amy. - Thanks, Mom.

Joey never talks about the women he dates.

- Let alone three home. - Thank you both.

You know, officially,

It's the second time we've had dinner together.

- �?
- Sim.

We had a date. Right after graduation.

- Don't you remember? - Dude, I think you dreamed.

Okay, look.

We were in town,

and we went to a Cuban diner, you know?

Do you remember that?


Very special, very special meeting.

It's okay, Amy. I can barely remember him

even me pregnant with his son.

Gee, you know how to attack me.

- 100% - Well done. Well done.

Don't remember. She doesn't remember.

You know, I ran into your friend Jenny yesterday.

- Was? - . She passed

at campaign headquarters to talk to Bobby.

She's investigating the shooting.

Are you still wasting time on this?

No. I think Jenny is. She's a prosecutor.

Must be doing what she does.

Are you talking about your Jenny from college?

- There's no "my Jenny". - It has "mine" none.

- He's completely single. - And back.

Sorry for them. We can be awesome sometimes.

Are you kidding? makes me feel at home

with my family in Florida.

So, family is everything.

I wish I could see my mother whenever I wanted.

So how often does he come to visit?

- This... - What?

It's a...

It's like an everyday thing.

I kind of live here.

Okay, well, in that case,

you have to show me your room later.

I think this one is to keep, Joe.


Hey, it's late.


No, Joe.

- Hi. - You're really invading

- my party? - Darren called me.

I'll only be a few minutes. On here.

It's the one with your favorite song.

Always reminds me of your birthday.

Law entrance exam. Week of finals.

. I remember.

autographed by Connor Oberst.

I played at a festival with him pre-Covid.

Thank you for that and for stopping by.

- Joe Kimbreau. - Oi.

Here he is. Glad you came, man.

- How are you? - Enters.

Thanks. Hi girls.

- � t�o legal.
- Inacredit�vel.

This doesn't look anything like the photo.

Will stay.

These are Ho Hos, not space capsules.

Chris, we'll get there, I promise.

It just takes a little delicacy.

It will look exactly like the photo.

We have to keep it that way. I mean, so what?

She won't be able to say what this is.

I was afraid to be Apollo-Soyuz,

two great nations putting their differences aside

and joining despite all odds.

Listen. This will be

Your mother's biggest birthday cake ever.

Jenny, please.

Can I just talk to you for a second, please?

- Joe Kimbreau. - Oi.

Voc� conhece
a Megan Thee Stallion?

C'mon C'mon. We have to show you our room.

Girls, maybe in a little while.

Are you okay? It would be amazing.

My God. Joe, I'm filming.

- Dr. Banks.
- Joe.

I knew you were here.

You've made a good name for yourself since college.


And the only person more surprised than you is me.

I'm not at all surprised.

It hasn't changed a thing.


Now this...

It's an excellent cake, Lucas.

I see you guys put a lot of love into it.

It's a dumpster cake. We put everything in it.

Make a wish, dear.

First day of the rest of your life.

Do you want to help me?


Now, this one's for you two, actually.

- My God. - Club membership cards.

That's a lot, Dad.

- Thanks. - Happy birthday.

We can play dominoes together.

Let's get down to business here.


Of course.

I'll be right away.

I have to go.

- What now? - It's the Diaz case.

I'm sorry my love. I love you.

I love this cake and I will eat a lot

when I get back, okay?

Are you really going to leave your party?

It's important, Ray. I have to.

Well, fine then. It's the boys now.

That half is mine. What will you want?

Do you play the violin too?

I used to play.

You are natural. Three chords and the truth.

2 chords away from being a star.

Maybe you can teach me.

You played well the other night.

I think it's cute that you live here.


With my mother?

Speaking of which,

how long does it take to get the ice cream?

She walks very slowly.

- Jenny, please. - Joe, I have guests.

I tried to leave you out of this, but I can't.

My name is not on the certificate.

I'm screwed without you.

Then you're gonna be screwed. Sorry.



"Sorry" is not good enough.

Stop it, okay?

You made an important decision without me.

Want to talk about decisions?

On graduation week,

I said we needed to talk and you gave me the pipe.

I didn't know.

I called you for 24 hours straight.

I didn't know that was the reason.

I was with Amy.

You've moved on and so have I.

You had your dream and I had mine.

And you coming here, thinking you have

- The right... - I have the right.

Father's right. I can take you to court.

Joe, please.

And then everyone would know.

A� est� voc�.

It's cake time. Are you ready?

Parab ns for voice

Parab ns for voice

congratulations dear mom

Parab ns for voice

Remember, in the 70s, when NASA and the Russians

Joined in a mission of peace?

� a Apollo-Soyuz.

- Can you know what ? - Clear.

These are the two countries coming together

and I bet the handshake happened right there.

The docking module.

It looks awful, but I think it tastes good.

It will taste great. I loved.

Sorry, no extravagant gift this year.

Everything is fine.

I'm glad you're here.

Enough waiting for him.

I'll introduce you.

Cool politics? It's the best thing after rock star.

I can talk about you all day.

It's easy, okay? Watch me.


I'm Bobby Diaz and I was the face

of this re-election campaign.

I'm here to talk about the heart.

And the brains.

And really the life force behind it.

Amy Kindel�n.

Amy won't brag about herself

or what you planned for this great community.

Allow me.

In my years, my many years...

Maybe too many years in politics...

no individual

can represent our community as Amy.

- You're late. - I know. I know.

What are you doing here?

Officially from the team. I'm the event organizer

If you were around, you would know that.

- Hey, idiot. - Hey. Look, I'm sorry.

Don't apologize to me.

It's time to send her voice to the Capitol.

Congress needs to hear from Amy Kindel n.

It's not just the next logical choice

to represent this great neighborhood.

She's the only one who can,

Amy Kindel�n.

Good night, Queens.

Thanks, Bobby.

You've climbed the landing, but I'll try to live up to it.

some may know me

as Bobby's campaign manager.

Some may know me as the wife

of a certain rock star,

but i want all of you

know me as Amy Kindel n,

the proud daughter of immigrant parents,

parents who migrated from Cuba with pennies in their pockets

to pursue the American dream...

Dream that they worked hard to realize...

They worked hard...

by me.

And I'm here to tell you that if I get elected,

I will work hard...very hard.

To ensure they have the same opportunities.

What else should you know about me?

I recently had a miscarriage.

I know some may think it's not an issue

for a night like this.

Some think that women

you shouldn't talk about it in public.

But it happened to me.

And, luckily, it makes me stronger.

It's my truth.

And I want you to meet me,

really know me.

That's what...

My campaign is built around,

truth and perseverance.

That's what I'm bringing to the job,

for this fight.

My name is Amy Kindel n.

And I'm running for Congress.

I'm not completely empty-handed.

I wanted to give this to you on a balcony

overlooking the ocean, but that will do as well.


Couples therapy?

I thought we couldn't pay.

I thought it would be more expensive not to do it.

Happy birthday.

Kiss each other later. We're not done yet.

Of course.

Okay, there's more.

Are you ready, friend?

I think you'll remember this one, Jenny.

this is the first day of my life

I swear I was born right at the entrance

I have to study.

I went out in the rain Suddenly everything changed

They are spreading Blankets on the beach

Is this supposed to be a cake?

Your face was the first I saw

I think I was blind Before I met you

I don't know where I am I don't know where I've been

but i know where i want to go

It's the entrance exam, Joe, the entrance exam.

As if the rest of my life

summed up in a 5-hour test.

It was hard to bake that cake.

So I thought I'd let you know

That these things last Forever,

i'm especially slow

But I realized that I need you

And I wonder if I could come home

That's it!

Hey, we're here.

Hey, stop it there.


- I have to take this. - Clear.

- Hello? - Hi, Joe.

I'm in the hospital.

Wayne Coleman just died.


See you in the morning, okay?
