I know!
We don't slam drawers in this house.

Not that.


What the...

"Want your business on blast?
Break up in Town Square!"


Wha... How do we fix this?

- Is there a time machine in the garage?
- Seriously, Annie!

How do I get that taken down?

You could ask nicely,
but they probably won't.

It already has 73 comments.

That you should not read.

Serenity needs a better hobby.

Three, two, one.

- Okay.
- Ooh!

I will trade you a cheddar stick
for your potato chips.

- Throw in the protein bar, you got a deal.
- All right.

Yeah, my mom needs to buy better snacks.

Well, maybe you should go
to the store for her.

- I don't know how to cook.
- Okay, shoppin' isn't cookin'.


But I do appreciate
your agreeing to a picnic breakfast.

And I appreciate your making time.

You're so much busier than I am, and...

I... I just don't wanna be the thing
that you have to plan your life around.

Like piano lessons?

- You play piano?
- Not anymore.

Like I wouldn't make time for you.

What are you up to today?

I got chores at home and at the spa,

and my dad wants to watch
the Braves game later.

I don't wanna watch them do what I can't.

- Then do something else with him.
- No.

Baseball is the only thing we do.

Or did.


Daddy and I are nothing alike,

but we can talk about anything.


He doesn't act preoccupied
or try to change the subject at all?

No, not at all.

I... I learn things,
and we get to spend time together.

Just find something your dad likes
and pretend to like it too.

And, uh, don't forget your raisins.

You know, I've never been a fan.

Well, you just don't understand
how sweet they are.

- This summer sucks.
- Language, Kyle.

No drama camp, no Hamilton.

Hey, I think your dad and I have been
reasonable under the circumstances.

- And now stupid community service.
- It's what Judge St. Clair ordered.

Because the Lewises made a huge deal
about my "depraved" behavior.

They did, but it was
Judge St. Clair's decision.

And part of accepting responsibility
for what you did

is seeing the consequences through.
Come on.

Dr. Ashley calls it
"ownership of my life."

Okay, I own this,
so I can do it by myself.

I have no doubt.

I need this break from my usual crowd.

They've been bringing too much drama.

Ooh! Like what?
I'm always the last to hear anything.

Because you're always the first
to tell it.

It's not my fault.
Information wants to be free.

Ty Townsend is here.

Why? Is a little Townsend-free time
too much to ask for?

What? I thought you were, like,
his sister from another mister.

Yeah, if sisters are expected to orbit
around you and think you're perfect

and put up with chaos and vanity
without so much as a thank you.

Well, according to my big sister, yes.

Absolutely yes.



- Hey, Ty.
- How you guys doing?

You never do Vacation Bible School.
What are you doing here?

- I can't exactly go to baseball camp.
- That's so awesome.

In your time of trial, you think of others
and come to help at church.

We're so lucky.


Yeah, okay.

- Could he be any more perfect?
- Yes.

You only think that
because you've known him your whole life.

Which means I know the truth behind the...

Aunt Maddie probably voluntold him
to be here.

And he respects his mama?

I don't wanna diminish
the reason why you're here, Kyle,

but I do encourage you
to look at this not simply as punishment

but as an opportunity to give back
to the community that's nurtured you.

I want you to know
that I'm committed to contributing

to the full extent of my gifts.

- That's the spirit, Kyle.
- And the Holy Spirit too.

Ladies and gentlemen,
may we have some willing hands up here?

This will only take a moment.

These are decorations.

If you take 'em out front,

Mrs. Shafer will let you know
where they go.

- No problem, Pastor June.
- Oh.

I have different plans for you, Kyle.

- Thanks.
- Mm-hmm.

Follow me.

Um, don't worry, Kyle, I'm not putting you
into service as an acolyte.

Thank goodness.

Do you know how to polish silver?

- I could be an acolyte.
- Serve the Lord with gladness.

Come before his presence with singing.

Yes, ma'am,
but I guess I'm not in a musicals mood.

There's a stool right there.

I'll be back to check on you,
and I'll be sure to bring you a snack.

Would have been nice
to have you in court, for Kyle's sake.

Well, I wasn't sure he'd want me there.


Fine. Skip over the hard stuff.
I'll take care of it.

You're angry.

I try not to be, but sometimes no matter
how I dress it up, my slip still shows.

Everybody I love has a reason to hate me.

Our kids don't hate you, Bill.

And neither do I.

Well, I'm so grateful for that.

But still,
I've been thinking on this a lot,

and I've decided that the best thing
that I can do for y'all right now

is give you some space.

So... you're looking
at the new head of pediatrics

for Pioneer Medical Center.

I dissolved my partnership with Howie,
moved into an apartment in Castlewood.

I'll just be a phone call or text away
if anybody needs anything or,

you know, if anybody needs me.



I'd like to be the one to tell the kids
if... if you don't mind.

No, of course.

I'll let them know you're coming by,
if that's good for you.

Thank you for, um...

Well, for everything.

I need you to be point person
on the produce shipments here on in.


Well, I'm committed to the farm
and all the fresh bushels.

I'm sure.

Just not looking
to get entangled up with Jeremy anymore.

I understand.


Does everybody know?

Well, great.

I don't love my personal business
being broadcast.

Yeah, then why do you live in Serenity?

Good morning, partner!
Top of the day, Team Sullivan's!

You're bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

I was thinking, how about a summer menu
tied to a concert series in the square?

Ooh! With specialty cocktails
named after the artists' biggest hits.

Yes. Yes! Or... or maybe,
uh, a YouTube series.

"Sullivan's, straight from our kitchen
to your stomachs."


- Partner.
- Yeah.

Come here.

If you wanna learn
the restaurant business...


...this is where you begin.

Start scrubbin'.

He's gonna do it.

I couldn't believe it
when I went through what Zoila gave me.

Fast Molasses LLC
not only bought the Wilkinson place,

it bought eight other lots,

all fast-tracked from residential
to commercial conversions.

You'll particularly enjoy
the one I circled in red.

My landlord sold my office
to these schemers?


Of course. My building and all the rest
would make great parking lots

for Gaynell's salon and Deb's flower shop,

and... and this is that old auto shop
right across the street from Wharton's

and Collins' hardware store.


This isn't just a land grab.
This is a cash grab.

Poor Zoila thought she'd lose her job
for giving us this information.

Have you had any luck
finding out who's behind Fast Molasses?

Oh, not only did I find out,
but you're gonna love the answer

on a level unbecoming
a good Lutheran woman.

- How are we gonna handle this?
- Head-on.

I have a meeting,
but I'll get over there a bit later.

No. I will handle this.

Go easy.

Or at least call me,

and give me a head start
so I can come up with a good alibi.

And if you don't get the answer you want,
you tell him I'll make the next call.

Maddie. What brings you by?

Real estate.

That is your line of work,
isn't it, Mary Vaughn?

Are you selling that beautiful house
of yours and leaving town?

Fresh starts can work wonders.

Not the kind of property
I'm interested in.

I'm actually here
to talk to you about a parking lot.

Oh, for your parking issues at the spa.

I'd be happy to help you with that.

Let's see.
What might be close enough to work?

I know. How about the old Wilkinson place?

- It's right behind us.
- What a fascinating idea.

Isn't it though?

Especially since it's just been rezoned
from residential to commercial,

mere moments after
old man Wilkinson sold it to an LLC

that also bought the old auto shop,
the duplex on Palmetto Drive,

Helen's office, and the land
that the town leases for the dog park.

For the holy love of Pete, Mary Vaughn,

tell me you're not planning
on paving over that dog park.

Well, my daddy always said
to invest in real estate

since God's not making
any more land.

Do you really think these deals
are befitting the mayor and his wife?

Nothing Trent and I are doing is illegal.

Yet you're funneling everything
through an LLC incorporated in Delaware.

That's tax strategy.
Maddie, it's just good business.

Everything that Trent and I are doing,
we are doing for the good of Serenity.

To build business, to attract industry.

To use Town Council
to change regulations so they benefit you,

to make yourselves rich.

Do you know what happens
when you kick a hornets' nest?

You get stung.

That's a small price to pay
for being able to exterminate the hornets.

Bless your heart.

Why did you and Pastor June think
this would be a good next step?

Well, since your birth mother
highlighted this passage in your Bible,

perhaps our next clue
is in The Sentinel archives.

Hopefully, we can get one step closer
to your truth.

And I know where to start.

- Is Peggy in? Thank you.
- Mm-hmm.

- Peggy.
- Helen!

- Pardon the intrusion.
- The Sentinel's doors are always open.

- Hmm. Let me introduce you to...
- I... I know Miss Peggy from Sullivan's.

So, how can I help the two of you?

We're doing some research.

Looking for information
on a Serenity resident.

You are wise to come here.

Reporters write
the first draft of history.

Are The Sentinel's archives
digitized or on microfiche?

- How far back do you need to go?
- 1998.

Okay. So these highlighted passages

might relate to a person or an event
that The Sentinel covered.

- I'm not sure if...
- Stop.

I know them all.

"And now abide faith, hope, love."

"These three things,
and the greater of these is love."

That one was always my favorite.

Oh! Um, you, uh...
You two deserve some privacy.

You know where to find me.

- This isn't how...
- I never... I'm sorry. Um...

You first.


You're him.

You're here?


Please, um, give me...

Kyle, Katie, you coming?

Hey, Dad.

So I've been looking for something
to read this summer,

and I... I found this on the shelf
with the books you left here.

What do you think?

I'm embarrassed to say, uh,

your nana gave me this
some Christmas ago, and, uh...

Well, I never did have time to read it.

- Hi, Daddy!
- Hey, there she is!

All right, come sit down there.

It sure is good
to sit here with all three of you.

- Are you here for dinner?
- No.

I came to share
some exciting news with y'all.

I've accepted a new job in Castlewood.

Now, y'all might not see it right away,
but I wanna do this for you.

This job is gonna let me
help you and your mom more,

and, you know,
I... I will be a little bit further away,

and I'm sorry about that,
but I'll still be here

whenever you need anything,
just like always.

Well, what do you think?

It's exciting!
Castlewood has Chuck E. Cheese.

It does indeed, Katydid,
and guess what else.

My apartment complex even has a pool.

- Cool.
- All right?

So, look, I got all three of you keys

'cause... well, 'cause it's your home too.

Thanks, Dad.


I love you, sweetheart.

Kyle, that's yours there,
and, uh, come on now.

Well, good luck.

All right.


Judge St. Clair
sentenced me to community service.


Your mom told me.

Why weren't you there?

Well, I wasn't sure
if you'd want me to be.

Listen, Kyle,

I'm still trying to figure out
what helps and what hurts,

and, well, I knew your mom had it covered.

Glad to know you're here
whenever we need you.

- Fancy footwork.
- Nice! Take it up! You got it!


Are you saying
I don't know how to woo a woman?

No, I'm saying
I just might be better at it than you.

What? No.

Isn't there a difference

between wooing a new love
and winning back your estranged wife?

- Ah, thank you, Howie!
- Really?

- You seeing anyone, Howie?
- No one serious.

- You?
- Nah.

May I point out that I'm
the only happily married man in this game?

- No. I'm married. I'm happy.
- She just won't let you back in the house.

Again, is this the guy that we should be
taking advice from? I'm just sayin'.

I admit I have some work to do,

but now that Farmer Jeremy
is out of the picture,

I can finally reclaim my rightful place
next to my beautiful wife.

- Oh!
- Nice!

You don't always have to be so aggressive,
my friends.

Stay close and patient,

and keep it nice and easy.

Are we talking about
someone specific, Erik?

No. We're giving Ronnie advice.

You talking about Helen?

- No.
- You sure?

No. Not now. Not even if
there was something to talk about.

Keeping something like this to yourself
is against the law in Serenity.

All right. Excuse me, gentlemen.

I thought we were here to play, huh?

Dude! What did you...

There's the game, Erik,
then there's the game.

There you are.

We rang the bell.

Thank you all for coming to visit.

Thanks for letting Helen
share the news with us.

Yeah, I need all the prayers I can get.


She walked away.


- You planting flowers?
- Yeah, I was... I was going to.

- We don't wanna interrupt.
- Eight hands are better than two.

That poor young man.

That poor woman.

That poor 16-year-old girl.

Peggy is Isaac's mom.


I certainly wouldn't have marched
into her office the way I did

had I a whisker of suspicion.

Oh, good grief.

While we were fussing
about Jessamine Juniors,

she was off having a baby.

Heavenly days.

That was the year
that Peggy and her mama went to Memphis

because Mr. and Mrs. Martin
were having marriage problems.

Oh, so Peggy got pregnant there.

Isaac was adopted in Mississippi.

Mm, maybe that's where the dad is from?

Maybe she went there pregnant,
and the dad is from Serenity.

And the whole trip was a cover-up.

Okay, ladies. No.
Let's not leap to assumptions.

The best help that we can offer here

is to support Isaac
while he figures this out.

Supporting Peggy too, if she's open to it.

- To Peggy.
- To Peggy.

- Hmm.
- Hmm. Mmm.

Yeah. Let's head over.

Speaking of Peggy,

how did the meeting with Mary Vaughn go?

- She didn't deny it.
- Mm-hmm?

She actually seemed proud.

We have to fix our parking problem
without buying that lot.

I do not wanna line her greasy pockets.

- Yeah, agreed.
- We can't afford to buy it anyway.

What if we set up something
with Wharton's? Clients can park there,

and we could shuttle them
to the spa and... and back again.

Yeah, we could give 'em a coupon
for a meal at Wharton's.

- Yeah.
- Let's talk to Neville and Grace tomorrow.

We have to nip this in the bud
before Mary Vaughn does any more damage.

She has come after everything
that matters most.

Cal, the spa, my kids.

- Your kids?
- Kyle.

Most juveniles in his position
would have received a fine.

First-time offender, no alcohol involved.

He's got the support of the family.
He expressed remorse.

What does she have to do
with the sentence though?

She and Trent insisted
that Nellie was disfigured

and emotionally traumatized
by the accident.

It swayed Judge St. Clair.

I wish the earth would just open up
and swallow the Lewises whole.

Either that or they'd up and move
to Castlewood with Bill.

Hi! How long were you planning
on sitting on that egg?

Listen, outside
from scheduling visits with the kids,

he doesn't cross my mind
all that much anymore. Thank God.

He's going to Pioneer
to head up pediatrics.

- Well, good riddance to bad rubbish.
- That's right, heartbreaker.


I did not want to break his heart!
You know, it kinda broke mine too.


It's just not fair to him.
I have a lot to figure out.

Did you and Jeremy part as friends?

What does this mean for you and Ronnie?

Did I mention
that I have a lot to figure out?

You know, and since we are talking
about awkward relationships,

can I ask how long
Noreen is planning to be in town?

Oh, I don't know.

And I hope one day I won't care.

I would love to have you back, but we are
fully staffed, and I don't need a temp.

I thought as much,
but I figured I'd ask anyway.

If someone needs a day off,
you'll give me a call?


Or, if you need a transcriptionist,

that's how I supported myself
during nursing school.

Would that really interest you?
Genevieve's mom took a fall,

and she's been off for a bit,
so as you can see, we got behind.

I would love to.

Well, hey, it's great to have you back.
Even for a moment, Noreen.

Pastor June asked
if we could add a rainbow to the banner.

Don't look over there.

Uh, what's he doing here?

Well, I don't think he came
to see me or Jesus.

I have work to do.

What exactly is happening here?

No idea.

- Lily. Annie.
- Hey.

- Hey.
- Hey.

What's up?

So many of y'all have been posting
you're volunteering at VBS.

Thought I'd come see what was going on.

I... I didn't come to work.

Oh, um, then why are you here?

When we ran into each other,
I mean, literally ran into each other...

Yeah, that was, uh...
Sorry about that.

No, no, no, don't be. It's just

I keep thinking about it.

I wanted to make sure that you were okay.

I am.




What was that?

I have no idea.

This shuttle arrangement
could be profitable for both of us.

What do you think?

Well, ordinarily, we'd be all for it,
but we've got a few problems of our own.

Parking problems?

Yes! Customers are staying away

because the meals come
with a parking-ticket surprise.

And it's the whole block.
Yesterday Collins came over

all in a lather about what it's doing
to his hardware store.

And Gaynell's hair salon
and Deb's flower shop

are having the same problems
on their block.

I don't suppose you've been encouraged
to buy the old auto shop

and turn it into a parking lot?

Are you two free tonight?
Come by the spa. Talk strategy.


Fabulous. We'll let the others know too.

Could we bring other folks
who might be interested?

Please do,
and we'll put out an email blast

to all the small business owners.

"In one body, we have many members,"
the Good Book says.

- A united front.
- Amen to that.

- Amen.
- Amen.

- Dude, I rocked that mohawk. Trust me.
- Pics, or it didn't happen.

I would have guessed drummer, not guitar,
but do you still play?

It was a million years ago.
I don't know what I remember.

If I have to listen to you two play,
does it count toward my community service?

Hey! Go back to Atlanta, Coach Useless!

Thanks for watching!

How do you brush that off so easily?


"Do what you feel in your heart
to be right. You'll be criticized anyway."

That doesn't sound like you at all.

That's because it's Eleanor Roosevelt.

Remembering what a great person said
helps me to be a better one.

You two doing well enough
for me to take your mom out to dinner?

- Please give us a night without her.
- Yeah, she deserves it.

- Who's reading this?
- Uh, no one, apparently.


Washington fascinates me.

Everyone thinks of him
as some refined hero,

but he was a total underdog.

No one expected him to survive,
much less win.


So how did he win?

Guess we'll have to read the book
to figure that out.

Here. I'll pick up my own copy.

We can read it and compare thoughts.

Yeah. That'd be great.

- Cool.
- All right.

- What are you two talking about?
- George Washington.

Never count out the underdog, Mom.


How you doin'?


This scheme of Mary Vaughn
and Trent's is worse than we thought.

So we're gonna have a meeting

with some other business owners
tonight at the spa

to talk about the best way to tackle it.

Oh, you are so sexy...

...when you strategize.

It seems like you're strategizing too,
General Washington.

Oh, you've outflanked me.

The boys gave me permission
to take you out to dinner.

- How's Friday night sound?
- At your service, General.


Ronald Sullivan!




- How long's that been loose?
- I have lost track.

You are gonna make me
lose my mind and break my neck.

Both are way too fine for that.

What are you thinking?
The neighbors are watching.

I figured...

...you know,
they all watched you throw me out.

They can see you take me back.


There more presumption
in the back of that truck?

Not too much.

Mostly apology.


Listen, Dana Sue, I've come to realize

that I've sat in the passenger seat
for almost 20 years

while you drove our lives.

Don't you dare put all our problems on me.

Oh! No, no, no, no. No.
No, Dana Sue, oh my God...

No blame at all.

Penance and... and gratitude.

You were always so good at everything.
It was just...

It was easy to let you take the lead.

I should have worked to be your partner,

lifting each other higher and higher.

And that is exactly what I will do

if you'll have me back.

It's not this simple.

But I thank you for the show.

And... and for the...

for the flowers.

Hey there.


- Thanks for coming in early.
- Yeah.


You want me to help set up the chairs?

In a minute.

I know that smile. Tell me.

Helen was here earlier,

and we were talking
about adoption agencies,

and, uh...


I'm not sure I want a baby.

Trotter, I...

I just can't... I can't stop
thinking about the older kids.

The ones that feel
the absence of a family.

You know, that kid
who stands on the lawn every day at dusk,

willing the perfect parents
to drive down the street

because parents who love
and accept them will change their world.

What do you think?

One of the things I love about you

is that you trust your heart.

I trust your heart too.

I think maybe my heart
is hearing someone calling to us.

Then let's go find our child.

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

Hey, Noreen.

Your front yard is beautiful.

I love the bottle tree.

I hope it's okay that I came by.

Yeah, of course. Uh, what brings you over?

I was wondering if the offer for me
to crash here for a bit was still open?

I wouldn't be a nuisance at all.

For sure. It's just
a lot has happened since,

and I'm just trying to get back on track.

It's funny how you think
you're headed one way in life,

and then something happens,
and it's completely turned upside down.

Yeah. Amazing.

Look, I get it. It's no worries at all,

but just promise me
that if you need help, you'll let me know.

Uh, I can think of one thing.

Sure. Say the word.

Would be nice to have
a friendly face around here.

- That's it. Seals the deal.
- Wonderful.

I actually have all my stuff in the car,
so do you mind giving me a hand?

Come on, I got you.

He even brought my favorite flowers.

- I'm practically swooning for you.
- Hmm. So why'd you send him off?

That might've worked when we were dating
or even living together.

It's a whole different thing
when vows are broken.

And a child is involved.

I have to decide
whether to revive a comatose marriage.

You know, that takes more
than just a sweet song and a sexy smile.


I thought you were the fire marshal.

You're just about the only ones
within town limits who aren't inside.

Oh, hey, Dana Sue!

Howdy, friends!



- Uh, if you call them, they will come.
- Yeah.

I've been collecting emails.
Figured you'd want a way

to keep in touch with everyone.
Make it easier to serve the community.

I can't count all the ways
I am proud to be your mom.

- Hey!
- Hello.

Reporting for duty, Dana Sue.

Hey. We hear
that you're taking on the Town Council?

- Mm-hmm.
- Sweet.


You know we're used to
raising our hands for battle.

It is an honor
to have you as part of the charge.

Thank you for the lovely article
on the community garden.

Oh, my pleasure.
I have to do a follow-up when you harvest.

- May we speak?
- I don't wanna give up such a fine seat.

I'll let you know
if I have questions after the meeting.

Peggy. About the other issue.

Helen, I trust your discretion.

Of course.

- Good evening!
- Hmm. There's that mother-of-three voice.

Friends, neighbors,
thank you so much for coming here tonight.

It seems like we have a lot in common.

Then George Washington said that

"perseverance and spirit
have done wonders in all ages."

- Sounds like something Miss Helen said.
- Maybe she got it from him.


She said, "There are no original thoughts

because everything's been done before,

and it's... it's our job
to find a unique spin."

A unique spin.

- Well, I'm in trouble, then.
- You are not.

Ty, please let me in.

Every summer I can remember
has been about baseball,

and I... I know it sounds lame,
but I feel like I'm... I'm drifting.

Well, I can be your anchor.

Look, there is so much more to you
than the game.

More than you've ever realized.

And I believe in every wonderful,

sweet, smart, handsome bit of you.

I believe in you too.

- Well, I wasn't fishing, so...
- Well, you already caught me.


Was that too much?


No, consider me hooked.


Bedrooms are down there,
and if you're looking for the light...

Most random spot ever.

Well, at least it doesn't control
the bathroom light or the hot water.

That's true.

I'm impressed
with how clean your place is.

If my brothers lived alone,

we would've had to have stepped over
three piles of laundry

just to make it through the front door.

I was raised by an accounting professor
and an interior designer,

so neatness was the only option.

- Where'd you grow up?
- Columbus, Ohio.

A Yankee. What brought you to Serenity?

Um, I need to grab something.

Congratulations, all y'all,
on a very productive night.

I mean, I don't wanna pat ourselves
on the back, but...

I think we came up with
a very strong proposal for Town Council.

And feel free to help yourself to a sweet
at the café, courtesy of the Corner Spa.

Oh, and ladies, this is the perfect time
to sign up for a membership too.

Oh yeah, those, however, are not free.

Wait, hold on. Wait, hold on.

As long as we're all here, what do you say

we talk about the potholes
over on Queen Road, huh?

Right. One of them
almost took out my rear axle.

- There you go.
- That's not even our biggest problem.

There's a water main out on Briar Patch
that's been leaking for months.

The city tax for those of us
with a home office is ridiculous.

And the fountain over in the park?

It's so run-down that water's squirting
out of its tail instead of its mouth.

All valid complaints

and all old campaign promises of Trent
he hasn't addressed.

- Anyone else have concerns?
- I have one.

When are you gonna start letting
the men in here? This place is nice!

Okay, we'll get to that one in a minute,

but, hey, if there's more
to talk about, let's talk.

- Thanks.
- Thank you.

So, what am I supposed
to say to my parents

to convince them
to let me dye my hair blue?

Maybe tell them you could be asking
to dye it bright green.

Yes! Well, what if green
is actually a better choice?

I mean, discuss that
with Billie Eilish.

What's up, y'all?

- Hey, Jackson.
- Hey, Lily.

I'm sorry to interrupt.
Annie, can I borrow you for a sec?

Annie, I wasn't completely honest
with you this morning.

There's another reason
I just can't stop thinking about you.

You have every right not to trust me.

I messed with you to get at someone else,
which was stupid. Terrible.

But you still stood up for me

even when everyone
was throwing me under the bus,

and I still didn't say the right things.

So let me say them now.

I'm not sure which is more important,

but I think "I'm sorry" comes first,

and "thank you" comes right behind it.

...appreciate both.

I never took the time to notice
how special you are until now,

and I can tell there's so much more.

If you could see your way clear
to getting to know me better too,

I think we might wind up
having a good time.

- I think you might be right.
- Any chance we could start fresh?

- It would be nice if we could be friends.
- Okay.

Then we'll go from there.

- Thank you so much.
- Thank you.

Good seeing you.

- Take care.
- Yeah, the whole town came together.

Good night, ladies.

- Bye!
- Good night.

Phenomenal in every way.

An extraordinary event, hmm?

- That was wonderful, Helen.
- Aw.

Congratulations, and thank you.

Much appreciated, Ashley.
Thanks for joining us.

Helen, the last guests have gone,
place is straightened up,

and first thing tomorrow,
we'll be working out bodies and minds.

Hmm. You are a saint, Trotter.

Would a saint be on the way
to Sullivan's for ice cream?

- Good night!
- Good night!

You are a remarkable woman.

Everything you've been going through,
and yet here you are.

I am surrounded and supported by a...

by a powerful circle of friends.

Hey. Sit.

You know, it's...

it's inspiring to see how you,
Maddie, and Dana Sue come together.

- Hmm.
- As partners and as friends.

Well, they're even more than that.

They're my sisters.

Hmm, but not only them.

I came through this

because of Maddie,

Dana Sue...

and you.



I haven't been up here
in I don't know how long.

Dana Sue made me come up here.

- What for?
- To get a different view of our neighbors.

To think about ways
to woo our local diners.

I'm pretty sure she was just trying
to get me out the kitchen.

Oh, no.
She can be very territorial.

In our tree house when we were little,

she was the only one allowed
to set a menu for our imaginary meals.

Huh. So my summer menu series...

That's not gonna happen.

Thank you for the warning.

Uh, but partnership
still has its privileges,

like access to up here
and the best bubbly.

Shall we?

How do you have time for all this?

I have been thinking about this
since I first came up here.

Dana Sue also said
that when the moon is bright...


...magnolias sparkle and shine like stars.

And you were an absolute star tonight.

I thought it was time
to bring you up here to see some more.

Do you think wishing on a star works?

Can't hurt.

What's your wish?

I wish...

that everyone in the world

has a moment like this.

Filled with gratitude...

with someone they love.

I love you, Cal.

She's not. She's out with her friends.

What are you doing here?

Sorry I missed the big meeting at the spa.
How'd that go?

Great, thank you.

You're not answering my question.

Got to worrying
about that loose handrail, so I fixed it.

Noticed that. Appreciate it.

Oh my, my.

- Thank you for that too.
- Rehinged the back screen door.

The one you were gonna get around to
three years ago?

Bathroom drain was slow.

Cleared it.

Picture of Annie leaning against the wall,

hung it.

Babe, I know

I can't fix all the ways I broke our home,

but the least I can do is fix our house.

I want to make
our today and tomorrow better

and strive each and every day
to deserve your forgiveness...

and your love.
