Glassware: check.

Vases: check.

Chandelier: check!

Skeeter, it's beautiful.

Hope it doesn't get ruined.

Hey, we got enough storm clouds out there.
Don't need you being one too.

Champagne glasses: check.

- Massage chairs...
- Check.

Helen! Are you relaxing?

Oh, recharging.

Skeeter will move all this into the salon

after we christen this place
with a very, very special Margarita Night.

Come on. Sit down.

Rest your weary for five minutes.

Test the amenities.

I want to be testing Dana Sue's menu.

Where in the world is she?

Wherever she is, she's got it
under control like she always does.

Plus, Skeeter has got the electrical,

the plumbing, and the HVAC all up to code.

Petey will come by tomorrow
for his final inspection.

He will sign off.

And then, we, my dear,
are a go for Saturday.

- Mm-hmm.
- Yes, we are.

The only difficulty is...

I cannot sit here all day
and wait for Petey.

Well, I can wait for him
while I write my speech.

When did you decide
to give a speech on Saturday?

Oh, no, no, no. No. Tomorrow night
at the baseball fundraiser.

You know, "open your hearts
and your wallets."

- Maybe something a little more subtle...
- Subtle.

...but have I had a chance
to work on it? No.

- I was getting worried about you.
- Hey.

It is wetter than a submarine
with screen doors out there.

I know.

Oh, I can't wait for y'all to try
brie bites... with pecan.

- Mm.
- Erik Whitley,

what he can do with a dough.

- Erik Whitley.
- Yes, please.

And here's to the most important element
of Margarita Night.

That's the three of us, right?

Oh, yeah, that's what I said.

You take this, you have to drive.

That's right.


- Give her a lot.
- Thank you.

All right, ladies. Let's pour it out.

All right.

As much as I want to enjoy every second,

I will be so happy when this weekend
is finally in the books.

Oh, yeah? Freeing up some time

for a fling with the shirtless wonder?

I don't mean to tease... too much.

No, really, honestly,
it would be daunting.

Not having been intimate with anyone
other than Bill in over 20 years?

- Well, okay.
- But, listen, I empathize.

- What about you and Ryan?
- Eh.

Any fling-worthy news to report?

Ryan's out saving the world.

We talk and we text,

but I'm not sure when next
we'll be together long enough

to have a fling.


The marvels of modern technology,

you can still talk
even when he's halfway around the world.


Hey, you.


Two blocks away.
He's, like, right across the street.

She what?

She what?

No, thank you. No, I... I mean that.

Okay, bye.

If you'll excuse me...

I've gotta go see a girl about a grudge.

- Ms. Maddie, let me take your umbrella.
- Oh, thank you, Nellie.

- Then I'll tell Mama that you're here.
- Okay, I appreciate that.

I know she's busy,
but I just need a few minutes.

She'll be so glad to take a break.

She gets herself so stressed
when she's entertaining.

Yeah, well,
her parties are always very memorable.

It's super important to her
that everything's perfect.

How's Kyle doing with the play?

They never give parts like that
to freshmen.

I know. He's... He's pretty excited.

He's so talented.

Will he be at the fundraiser?

He would've been,
but I need his help down at the spa so...


You look rode hard and put up wet.

Mary Vaughn.

Nellie, go on and let the adults talk.

I suppose this visit has to do
with our unfortunate scheduling conflict.

An uncanny coincidence, isn't it?

The forecast for tomorrow
calls for terrible rain.

I had no choice but to move
our outdoor baseball gala

to Saturday night.

Opposite our spa opening.

Seems like old times.

I can't imagine what you mean.

Your sweet sixteen?

This has nothing to do with that.
Why would you think it does?

Because you've never gotten over it,

no matter how many times
we've apologized over the years.

It was an unavoidable scheduling conflict.

- As is this.
- For a good cause.

As is this.

And just as your little hurricane relief
bake sale had...

Dessert auction,

and it raised over 1000 dollars
for families

- that were displaced by the hurricane.
- ...had no effect on my sweet sixteen,

neither will your spa party
have any effect on my fundraiser.

We're sure to draw very different crowds
Saturday night.

Anyone who cares about our boys
will obviously be here.

It's a shame you won't be.

Oh, I'll be here. To help with the set-up.

Doing my part as a Bulldog Booster.

Bless your heart.

Such the busy single mother.

Was there something else
you wanted to discuss?

Look at this ridiculous sunshine.

She did not have to move her party.
It's gonna be clear and dry tonight.

You know what? Chin up, sweet pea.

Last night, Annie helped me do
a social media blast.

- That's right. I blasted.
- Okay.

And we targeted all the women in town.

Not everyone is associated
with the baseball team.

Okay, well,
we've gotta get off to a strong start

because all of our projections,

they will be invalid
and we will be on thin ice, Dana.

- So I'm telling you.
- Okay, listen,

we are not gonna let Mary Vaughn
ruin this, all right...


- Oh, my God.
- Oh, what in Sam Hill...

We have an opening tomorrow night!

You gotta get somebody over here to...

Listen, this is a city tree,
so it's a city responsibility.

We've been telling you for weeks
that this was sick!



Fine, thank...

It was only a matter of time.

What'd they say
about getting this mess outta here?

Oh, they cannot anticipate.

Trees are down all over town,

they've got electrical shortages
and flooding.

Municipal services
are completely overwhelmed.

Petey could be here any minute,
and you know he won't sign off on this.


Well, I'm pretty sure
Ronnie's chainsaw's still in the garage.

So let's get going.

She's gonna chainsaw it.

- Who's gonna chainsaw?
- I'm not chainsawing.

- This could've killed someone.
- My Lord!

Ryan! What're you doing here?

Flew in this morning.
Surprise. Hey, Maddie.

- Thank you.
- Figured you might want an escort

to the grand opening, but it looks like
you might need more than that.

Dana Sue just went to get her chainsaw.

- I can help with that.
- Okay.

I should be able to have this cleared
in a couple of hours.

- What time is your inspector coming?
- You never know with Petey.

Well, we lost power, ladies.

Are you kidding me.

Grid problem.
City doesn't know when it can come out.

Lord, what else?

Oh, please. Do not test the Lord.

Well, I better call Erik

and get the perishables
back to Sullivan's.

If we don't get power back at this spa,

we're gonna have to rethink
this whole menu.

All right, what do you think?
Crudités by candlelight?

Mm, we can be a little more creative
than that.

- Okay.
- I'm thinking dessert-heavy.

And a prayer that the city comes through.

- Genius.
- Isaac,

pull that box of ramekins
out of storage, will you?

You got it.

I'm scared to ask what else can go wrong.
Thank God Ryan showed up when he did.

Who is this Ryan guy anyway?
Overheard y'all mention him once or twice.

Oh, he's Helen's first and greatest love.

Ms. Frances is his aunt.
He used to spend his summers with her.

Helen would conveniently
not be in a relationship every June,

and after high school, they chased
each other across the country for a while,

but fate had other plans.

So, you know, some might say

that he's the one that got away.

- Looks like he didn't get away completely.
- How long were he and Ms. Helen together?

All right, you know what?
Does my shirt say Helen's Diary?

Listen, history lesson can wait.

It always repeats itself anyway.

Looks like everything is up to code.

Cute little venture
you have on your hands here.

So you'll sign it off?

Just as soon as you clear
the rest of this equipment

and the rest of that tree.

- It's a fire hazard.
- Okay.

On it.

- Skeeter!
- Are you okay?

Oh. I'm all right.

I'll just walk it off.


- That's a problem.
- Well, it's just a small, little hole.

With a whole lot of exposed wire.

We'll fix it.
Skeeter, this can't take long. Can it?

I... I'm not sure we have another sconce.

These were special order.

But... But we can patch this.

I mean, if this was drywall,
I'd do it myself.


But it's plaster.
So I'll call my guy.

If he's not out on the lake,

- maybe a few hours' work.
- Okay.

Petey, if you come back end of day,
we will be right as rain.

No can do. Full schedule today.

We would consider it a personal favor.

One that we would happily return
with a full membership for your wife.

You're not bribing a city official,
now, are you, Mrs. Townsend?


Mr. Martin,

allow me to draw your attention

to that sick tree
which made the mess out front,

which the city repeatedly ignored.

Shall we discuss
where the liability attaches

if anybody should get hurt
while clearing it?

- I'm listening.
- Yes.

Allow me to propose a quid pro quo.

You return at the end of the business day

and we...

won't pursue the city for negligence.

I'll be back at 4:45.

Day ends at five.

And I don't work weekends.

Bill and Howie donated a wellness visit
for the fundraiser,

but I just wanted to make sure
the winner had something to carry home.

There's vitamins, a first aid kit,
that sort of thing.

Oh, how thoughtful!

Presentation is everything.

Looking forward to seeing you
Saturday night.

Thank you, but I won't be coming.


Of course. Bill will come to us,
and you'll go to that spa opening.

I actually wasn't. I don't think
I'd be very welcome there.


Pregnant and on your feet all day?

You deserve a little pampering.

You won't have time for that sort of thing
once the baby arrives, that's for sure.

Put yourself first while you can, okay?

Go on and get a foot rub.

Oh, hi, darling!

- Mama.
- I thought I'd check the light

one more time in the yoga studio,

just to make sure
that it really is the best place

for my latest creation.

Yeah, it's the only place
for your painting,

especially considering I'm not quite sure
what statement you're planning on making.

Oh, ye daughter of little faith!

It's perfection! You'll see!

All right.

Hello, ladies.


Well! You're a sight for sore eyes.

Mary Vaughn let you out
of volunteer prison?

Oh, the queen bee
has plenty of worker drones.

I thought I might be of more use here.

Yeah, actually could you help Ryan
with that tree out there?

Oh, but don't strain yourself, darlin'.

You need to be in tip-top shape
for the auction tomorrow.

I intend to bring my checkbook

so that I can bid on a date
with Coach Cal.

No, I was very clear with Mary Vaughn.
It is a lunch. Not a date.

- Of course it is, darlin'.
- Oh, boy.

- It's just a lunch!
- Uh-huh.

It's just a lunch.


Thank you both for, uh, helping out.

- We couldn't have managed without you.
- Happy to help.

Yes, thank you guys so much.

Now I can make it to my baseball mom shift
at Mary Vaughn's.

Oh, you are so welcome, and I am so sorry.

I was looking forward
to going to the opening...

with you.

Well, I was looking forward to seeing you
all dressed up for the fundraiser.

Maybe it's better
that we aren't both at the same function.

- Yeah. Yeah.
- Less distractions.

The problem is
you are very much a distraction.

Whether you're with me or not.

Excuse me, Maddie. What time is it?

Uh... it's five o'clock.

Five o'clock?

Petey's nowhere to be found.

- Wait, Petey Martin?
- Yeah.

He's in Mary Vaughn's.
I passed him on the way out.

Excuse me while I go quid
his lazy pro quo.

Jackson, darlin', drape the streamers.

We are not out here hanging laundry!

Mary Vaughn. Peggy.

Petey. We expected you 30 minutes ago.

I got caught up.

And I warned you I had a hard out at five.

Well, I got a hard out for you.

After you didn't hold up
your end of our agreement,

I had no option but to call your boss,

who just happens to be
a former client of mine.

A former and grateful client.

And she would like to have a word.

This is Petey.

Mary Vaughn...

- my apologies for the interruption.
- Yes, ma'am.

Peggy, I will bring my donation
to the newspaper tomorrow morning.

Thank you so much, Helen.

I didn't know you were a baseball fan.

I'm a fan of whatever matters
to the children of Serenity.

Mm-hmm. Yes, ma'am.

Come on, Petey.

All right.


How dare it still be wet?

- We can't paint it like this!
- I know.

It's bad enough that there's no sconce,
but this is just plain ugly.

All right, listen.
We will not stumble at the finish line.

Okay? We just have to cover it.

- Somehow.
- With what?

We could hang a... a quilt.

All right.

Thought we were brainstorming,
not every idea's a winner.

- You said a quilt!
- I know!


- Girls!
- Oh, dear.

The artiste is here.

- Ms. Paula!
- Oh, hi!

So who's gonna be a dear

and help me carry this to its hiding spot?

Oh, I mean, its place d'honneur.

Um, Ms. Paula,

I think we can help each other.

Well, well. Hey there, Maddie.

Party planning
isn't for the faint of heart now, is it?

Well, since I won't be back tonight
to help,

I thought that I would bring by
a few extra auction items.

Including some spa memberships.

I suppose we call y'all
the Sweet Magnolias for a reason.

And I brought you
one of Dana Sue's homemade scrubs

as a gift.

There might've been a time in our lives

where we would have looked
at something like tonight

as a competition.

Just... isn't it nice
that we're past that now?

I really hope that your event
is everything that you need it to be.

Have fun.

- As far as I can tell.
- All right.

Mama. Hello.

Um... your painting's supposed to go
in the yoga studio.

Oh, uh, we had to do something.
The plaster's still wet.

So are you ready to see it?

I don't know. Am I?

Oh, Ms. Paula.

- It's...
- Perfection.


For my Sweet Magnolias.

See what happens
when you allow yourself to dream?

♪ Look at the stars ♪

♪ Look how they shine ♪

♪ The night might be dark ♪

♪ But baby I've got some light... ♪

All right, come a little closer.

All right, one, two, three...

There we go.

That was a good one. Yeah.

It's finally happening.

We have come a long way
from that lemonade stand.

And this is only just the beginning.

- Oh, dear.
- Is 15 guests a beginning?

Oh, it's early yet.

Fingers crossed the baseball moms
will be able to slip away.

- We're good.
- All right.

Trotter, strike a pose.

♪ Look at the stars ♪

- Welcome!
- Hello!

Come on in. Nice to see you!


Oh, how are you?

Hey, regionals.

- You know what I'm saying?
- You ready to go?

Gonna go, right? Okay.

I'm gonna get some drinks.

♪ Sometimes I hear ♪

♪ A mockingbird sing ♪

♪ Such a sweet little melody... ♪

You know, the baked brie can use
a little more fruit garnish around it.

When I said fruit,
I meant the not-green kind.

On it, boss.

Where are you, kiddo?

Still here.

I'm supposed to be shooting photos
for the baseball fundraiser,

and I thought
Mom would let me leave by now,

but she's way too wrapped up to notice.

It's a pretty big night for her.

- And for you. I hear you.
- It's just Simon's counting on me

to take pictures for the newspaper,
and Ty is...

And time is slipping away.

I get it.

Listen, Isaac and me
have everything under control.

- Really?
- Really.

Go talk to your mom.

If she says it's okay, then off you go.

Thank you. Thank... Thank you.

So all of our scrubs are handmade
and hypoallergenic, so you're...


Uh, and all of our products are organic
and locally sourced.

Excuse me, Mom?

There's nothing in this that
you have not been around your whole life.

- Besides her expertise, of course.
- Excuse me, Chef?

You know what, pardon me. Just one moment.

- Excuse me.
- Yes?

Have you left your manners at home,
young lady?

It's almost nine o'clock.

What? What am I forgetting?

Me taking pictures of the baseball thing.

- For the school paper.
- Right. Yes.

I gave Simon my word.

I can't let him or the newspaper down.

Okay, listen, I was hoping that you and I
would have some time together tonight.

Okay, I understand. Go.

Thanks, Mom.

This is the place!

Oh, there's the champagne!

Hello! Ooh. Come on.

- Hi, welcome!
- Hi. How are you?

- Hello!
- Welcome.


Hey! Hi!

Hi, hi!


I might've mentioned your venture
to a few friends of mine in Charleston

and perhaps they mentioned it
to a friend or two.

It's called advertising.

- Thank you.
- And they are fabulous.

And they are all yours.

I have got to dash off
to this baseball thingie.

Spend some money.

- Ms. Paula?
- Yeah?

- Can I catch a ride?
- Of course, sweetheart.

Hey! Text me when you get there
and back by 11:30 to help clean up.


Thank you.

That was great fun.

Oh, I'm just gonna say hi.

Hey, how are you?

I'd like to thank y'all
for coming out tonight

and supporting these fine boys.

And a special thank you to Coach Maddox

for taking such great care
of our boy Jackson.

And also best wishes
to Assistant Coach Harlan Bixby

who couldn't be here with us tonight

because that darling wife of his
is in labor!

All right now, let's get down to business.

But I am just the mayor.

The real boss,
as I'm sure y'all are quite aware of,

is standing beside me right here

and I'm gonna let her take things
from here.

Thank you, honey.

Good evening, Serenity!

Well, I don't know about you,
but I am so thankful the weather held.

You know what they say,
God smiles on the worthy.

So drink up, and let's start our auction.

Our first item is a marvelous offer:

a wellness visit
with one of Serenity's finest,

Dr. Bill Townsend.

Who would like to start the bidding?

Now, I don't need to remind you

that Dr. Bill held an illustrious record
for the 1998 team

with the third most RBIs that season.

Thirty dollars.


Thirty dollars to Peggy Martin.
Thank you, Peggy.

Our next item on the auction block:

a date with Coach Cal Maddox.

Well, my, my,
aren't we living in high cotton.

- Let's start the bidding at 50 dollars.
- Fifty dollars!

- Thank you, 50. Who will bid 75?
- Seventy-five!

Thank you, 75!

- May I join you?
- How about 100?

- One hundred!
- Sure.

- Let's hear it for 150.
- Happy to have the company.

- Thank you 150.
- Oh, you can't be that desperate.

The most embarrassing thing to teenagers
is being seen with their parents, so...

How about 250?

- Three hundred dollars!
- Oh, $300.

My, my, what splendid generosity!

Excuse me.

Do I have 350?

Five hundred dollars!

Five hundred dollars.

Well, well, thank you, Ms. Paula!

- Will anyone...
- I doubt it.

Yes, ma'am. Going once, going twice,

sold for $500 to Ms. Paula!

Our next item
is a Grand Slam Pizza Party,

donated by Grace and Neville Wharton.
How much do you love them?

The wellness visit,
it's good for the whole practice?

Sure, I'll tell Howie.

Nice touch with the cute basket this year.

Yeah, that there was all Noreen.

Oh, I don't doubt that for a minute.

Thank you, 50! How about 75?

Thank you, 75. Who will bid one...

I'm so sorry. I didn't know.

I just needed a moment to...

Mm. Me too.

I gotta say, I'm...

I'm surprised to see you here.

Why? It's the hottest ticket in town.

Let those boys have their baseball,
right? And us girls...

You chose the most glorious paint colors.

This room is peaceful,
but it's not too sleepy, you know.

It was our yoga studio.

Really? Oh, are y'all gonna have
some prenatal classes?

'Cause I hear it's so good and I just...

I want what's best for the baby.


any mother would.


we don't have to be enemies, Noreen...

but we're not gonna be friends.


Noreen was just complimenting us
on our calming choice of colors in here.

It... It's beautiful.

The whole spa is.

Um, I...

I think all the ladies of Serenity
should come enjoy it.

We hope all the ladies of Serenity
do come enjoy it.

Well, I'm just gonna mill about a bit.

Hey, Noreen.

Make sure you pick up
one of Dana Sue's scrubs.

It'll feel great on your feet
when they puff up.

Mighty gracious. Thank you.

Bless her heart.

What'd she say?

All the wrong things.

But, honestly, what could she say?

Hey, y'all.

I am moderately pleased to announce

that we have raised
just a bit over $3,000 tonight!

But we are still shy of our goal

of what we need
to send our fine boys to regionals.

Perhaps our biggest money-earner
of the night, Coach Cal,

might have some idea of how we might
be able to make up the difference.

Perhaps another date?

Seeing as how I have stepped way out
of my comfort zone this evening,

I think it's about time these boys
stretch a few new muscles of their own.

So how about a car wash?

Come on, Coach!

Coach Maddox, don't you think
with all the studies and practice,

these boys deserve
a little bit of a break?

- Huh, guys?
- There you go.

How about a bake sale?


I don't bake, Coach!

That should be enough to cover the bus
and accommodations to regionals.

Well, with this very generous donation
from Dr. Bill Townsend,

we have met our goal!

And then some!

Dr. T! Dr. T! Dr. T!

Dr. T! Dr. T! Dr. T! Dr. T! Dr. T!

Good technique.

It's really kinda fun.

Yeah, it's all about finding the zone.

Now, pastries might not seem cool,

but they can be the fastest way
into the heart of a woman.

Something on your mind, Kyle?

No. No. I just...

H... How do you make someone like you?

No, man. That's how stalkers think.

- You can't make someone like you.
- Well, that sucks.

All right, you wanna win in love?

Live your best life.

It'll happen when it's meant to.

You're a great kid.

- You're great, and you're not married.
- Well, I was.

Man, you're divorced too?

Everyone I know is divorced.

I mean,
what's the point of even liking someone?

Let's, uh, get this cake finished.

I know one lady who's gonna be thrilled
to have it tonight.

I remember Ms. Frances
couldn't keep you to a playpen

with duct tape if she wanted to.

Man, that's nothing compared
to the ruckus you caused with Helen

once your whiskers poked out!

Y'all wanna make me blush?

Well, we knew
you were gonna travel the whole world.

But where's your next stop?

South Africa
for a regenerative farming conference.

The project we're looking into aims
to restore the natural biodiversity

to a couple of hot spots
in Zambia and Madagascar.

- That certainly sounds important.
- It is.

You gonna be gone long?

Uh, after the conference?

I don't know. I gotta reevaluate.

Might not need to be boots on the ground
for every project.

Well, I'll tell you what, we sure do hope
that you be back real soon.

- That's right.
- Yes, sir.

That's the funny thing about Serenity,
I never realize...

how much I miss it
till I'm back feeling so at home again...


Speaking of.


Uh, I'm really happy that you menfolk
have had a chance to catch up.

But there are empty glasses

in every corner.

Every corner.

- We're getting back to work right now.
- Go on!

- Right now.
- You're cute!

- You look so beautiful.
- Thank you!

Now I want to introduce you
to my niece.

She just graduated from college. And...

- Mary Vaughn!
- Ms. Paula!

Ah. Thank you for a lovely evening.

But it's time to kick it up a notch.

- Or three.
- Ms. Paula, are you headed to the spa?

- You need a ride?
- I do.

- Well, come on then.
- Okay.

- And this is good night.
- Good night!

But don't think for a minute
that this replaces our date together.

No, ma'am. I'm hiring a car
for our... lunch.

Coach Maddox!

- Leaving so soon?
- Yeah.

I have a, uh... another commitment.

Thank you

for everything you did
for the team tonight.

It's greatly appreciated.


Five hundred dollars!

It means the world to us

that you would all be here tonight
celebrating with us.

But none of this would've been possible

if not for one very special lady:
Ms. Frances.

Oh, my, thank you.

This spa was originally
the home of Frances Wingate

and honors all the dreams
that were dreamed

sitting on the front porch of her home.

Oh, my stars, you girls!

We could not have done any of this
by ourselves.

Nobody in Serenity does anything
by themselves

for better or for worse, right?

Oh, Ms. Frances.

You have inspired us
from this very front yard

to dream our biggest dreams.

And, uh, with that said,

on the day of your birth,

a mere...

...years ago,

...we present to you...


- The Frances Wingate Memorial Bench.
- Oh.

So that everyone in Serenity
will always have a special place to dream.

A throne for our queen!

- To Ms. Frances.
- To Ms. Frances!


Oh, my dear Sweet Magnolias.

Thank you.

Thank you for passing the torch
from my family

to this beloved community.

This night, on so many levels,

is the best birthday ever.

Thank you.

Oh, hell's bells!
Let's not burn the place down now!

Could you all huddle up a bit?

Even if that is for football.

Where are all the other mothers?

Hey, "State" on three, boys.
One, two, three.


All right, I got it. Thanks, guys.

Yeah, man.

Annie. Can you send me that picture?
If we use it in the paper,

I'll make sure you get proper credit
and payment.

- I would love that. Thank you, Ms. Peggy.
- Of course.


Okay, time for the real party.
Want a ride?

Yeah... Sure. Thanks.

Excuse me,
would you like to dance?

- Uh, yeah, sure.
- I'm Trotter.

I'm Noreen.

Nice to meet you.



Congratulations, girls!

That was one fine evening!

Oh, thank you, and thank you for
reaching out to your friends, Mama.

They really brought the party.

They know how to do that!

But... did they open their wallets?

- Oh, yeah, all but one.
- Yeah.


She is one stingy woo-woo.

All right, well, honestly this was
more successful than I ever imagined.

True friends.

Hey, turn it up!

Pump up the bass!




I brought provisions!


You're welcome.

Whoa. Uh!

Phones in the bucket, paparazzi.

What happens here stays here.

So I'll be taking that.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

- Give it back.
- I won't let nothing happen to it.

My legacy pics are on this thing.


If that boy had an idea,
it would die of loneliness.

Thinks he's gonna be mayor one day
like his daddy.

Is it okay that we're here?

Yeah, we do this all the time.

Want a swig?

No, I think I'm good.

Might help you explain
all the butt crack pics

you'll find on your camera later.


I'm sure he's taking real good care
of your camera.

Jackson's an idiot.

Not a hoodlum.

Besides, I got your back.

Take a slug.



Not as sweet as having someone
as fine as Ty

as your brother from another mother.

Or more.

N... No, we're just friends.
That's all. Friends.

Relax. I'm just teasing.

CeCe! Reinforcements!

I'll be back.

Come on!

♪ I've got colors in my heart ♪


- Okay.
- Go on.

♪ And life has given me
A brand new start... ♪

- Oh, sorry.
- It's okay.


Look at this crowd.

You know, I should probably check in
with Dana Sue and Helen.

Thank you for coming, though.

Whatever you need.

I'm not going anywhere.

Show me your moves, Cal.

Uh, uh, uh! Hey, now. Jackson's got you.

I got you.

Jackson. Annie can do just fine
on her own.

Gravity says otherwise.

- Let's get you home, all right?
- My camera!

Gabe, get her camera.

- How much did you drink?
- Prince Ty coming to the rescue.


Annie, you okay?

Just friends, my ass.

Come on, let's get you home.

Grab your phones.

- Here you go.
- Someone can't handle it.

I'm gonna get you home, all right?
Come on. Hold on to me.

I'm sorry.

Hey there.


Did you go to Maddie's party?

I did. Is something wrong?

Ah, it's just...

you know,
some people might find it strange,

you... showing up
at my ex-wife's new business.

I have just as much a right
as any other woman in Serenity

to enjoy the spa.

And I had a very pleasant chat
with Maddie.

Now if you'll excuse me,
I'm just dying to try this scrub.

All brushed
and my clothes are in the hamper!

Okay, yeah, let's get you to bed.


There you go.

Okay, so, you're probably not
gonna remember much tomorrow,

but, um, make sure just to drink water.

Hey, small sips, okay?

Yes, sir.

Also, take two of these.

Um, where's your phone?

Right. I'm gonna text your mom, okay?

Thanks for looking out for me.

I see you too!

You'll never need a filter.

"Sorry to miss clean-up.

So tired.

Going to bed."

All right.

All good.


Here you go.



I, uh, I wanted to create a space
for my heart

and my world to meet.

I know where that space is for me.

Did I mention

that my mama lives in Florida these days?

So you're telling me
that she's not right behind that door

waiting to flick the lights on and off
if I try and kiss you again?

Oh, bless her heart. She is not.

You want to come in?


My baby girl.

I don't tell you this often enough,

but I am so proud of you.

All of your... talent and hard work.

I hope you got
everything you wanted tonight.

You deserve it all.

Thanks again, Ty.

You're just so great!

No, delete.

You're amazing.

And that kiss...

Oops! But, for real,

best kiss ever!

I get why they say you fall.


love emoji, kiss emoji, send.

You're amazing.

And that kiss...

Oops! But, for real,

best kiss ever.

I get why they say you fall.


love emoji, kiss emoji, send.


what do you think the Serenity rumor mill

is going to make
of our dancing together tonight?

Tongues will be wagging. That's for sure.

But I had a really good time.

Well, if everyone's already decided
that we're a thing...

who are we to disagree?
