Marriage has always been

a big deal to my mother.

She loves weddings.

Especially hers.

And hers.

And hers.

And, well...

you get the picture.

But as easy as it was for

my mom to get married...


My relationships...

have never been

cleared for takeoff.

I fell in love again

and it happened in a minute

My eyes shot out like a fish out

of water and I'm jumpin' in it

Oh, I don't hold back

No, I don't hold back

I never stay within the lines

I don't hold back

No, I don't hold back

I'm gonna take what's mine

Oh, don't get scared for me

Just be prepared for me

'Cause I'm in love with love

In love

When it comes to love

can't get enough

I'm not gonna change, I'm not gonna

change, I'm not gonna change my ways

'Cause I'm in love with love

When it comes to love

can't get enough

Can't get enough

I always wanted to be a

flight attendant. It's a great job.

You get to travel around the world,

meet interesting people

and see exotic places.

But that hasn't left

a whole lat of time for love.

My mom says it's

because I'm too picky.

I don't think I'm picky.

I just know what I don't want.

I don't want a man

with wandering eyes.

Or one that cares

more about his work than me.

I don't want a guy with

too much attitude.

Or too little ambition.

But I also don't want

to end up alone...

living in a house

full of cats...

smelling like soup.

And I don't want to spend

my entire life...

listening to my mother tell me

how she can find five husbands...

and I can't even find one.

But she won't be able

to say that for long.

A few months ago, I met this

amazing guy on a flight to Miami.

His name is Graham.

And I think he's the one.

"I've had a change

of business plans...

"...and it looks like I'll be spending

Thanksgiving at home in Chicago."

"I know it's short notice, but..."

Give me that.

"... If you can make it, I would love

for you to join me for a weekend...

"'ll never forget."

"Love, Graham."

Graham is...

Someone I've been dating

for a few months.

- Wow. A few months? That's a record, Mo.

- Shut up.


Montana! Buongiorno!

Buongiorno, Taylor.

It's zeppole. Italian donuts.

Thank you, but I'm

watching my figure.

Okay, but if you

change your mind, there's plenty.

- Aw!

- Ciao bella.

- Ciao bella.

- I'll get you some milk.

Sounds great.

She's so sweet.

What's with the Italian?

She planned a trip to Rome

for our one-year anniversary.


How do you turn your oven off?

Oh! Okay, babe, I'll be right there.

I just put in a new oven.

Of course you did.

Are you ever going to finish that place?

- William?

- Hey?

Got it.

Aw, I'm coming.

- Okay, good.

- Okay.

I got to go.

Yes, you do.

Good luck in Rome.

If it were me,

I would have chosen Paris.


So romantic.

Good luck in Chicago.

You think just because someone...

sends me a rose, I'm just going

to fly off to whatever town he's in?


According to my mother, you're not

a lady unless you're married...

on or before your 30th birthday,

and you're not a woman

until you've had at least two kids.

If you Te not a lady

and you Te not a woman...

you're like my best friend, Gail.

Warm nuts?

Oh, I'm so sorry.

I got your nuts all messy.

Sorry about that.

That all better?


Happy Thanksgiving. Welcome.

I could have been late, too.

Remember 9F?

Boston to Cleveland?

He invited me to his cabin in Vermont.

But I couldn't go.

Why? Because I had to

be at work on time.

- Happy Thanksgiving.

- Hi.

Why are you working?

I thought you were off.

I was. And now I'm not.
