[ Woman Narrating ]

It all began at the Rlaza Hotel:::

twenty years ago

in the month ofjune:

- [ Crowd Chattering ]

- Two mothers brought their

daughters, Liv and Emma:::

here to the Ralm Court for tea:

On that afternoon,

there was a wedding:

There was something blue,

something borrowed:::

and something completely magical:

And two little girls

from New jersey:

held in their hands a new dream-

that one day they would find

that one person:

who would stand by them

no matter what:

and when they did, they too:::

would havejune weddings at the Rlaza:

Thank you.

And, yes, Your Honor, I will take

this lofty man to be my husband.

I always knew my wedding

would be the happiest day of my life.

Now I will dance with you

until we have six babies and a house.

Do you think they let pets

inside the Plaza?

Well, it's not like we're getting married

until we're 1 6 at least:

Next time, can I play the bride?

Emma, you know

I always play the bride.

[ Woman On Stereo ]

# This will be an everlasting love #

- # This will be- ##

- Not too shabby.

- Caviar cocktail hour-

- Cigar roller, white glove service-

- Celadon cymbidium orchids.

- Great deejay.

[ Liv ]

So we both admit it's beautiful.

- Um,yeah:

- But?

Do you think it's the work

of Marion St:

Oh. Marion's a visionary.


- Oh.

- If it had been my wedding-

- Oh,just say it.

- It ain'tjune.

- And it ain't the Plaza.

- It's the elephant in the room.


[ Gasps ]

- And here you are.

- Oh, look.

A duck made out of ice.

Isn't this great?

Know what else is great?

Going home early and watching

your backed-up TiVo?

Am I that predictable?

How about one more dance...

and I'll give you my piece

of the cake- if you let me lead.

Very funny.

- Come on. Come on.

- You know I always lead.

Hey. Oh.

Hi, girls.

[ Laughs ]

- Are you ready to catch this bouquet?

- Gotta go.

- I'm so happy all of you are here:

- On the other hand, always fun.

I know. They take it so seriously.

- My work friends, sort of:

- [ Guests Laugh ]

My college buds- Oh, my God:

Emma Allan, is that the same dress

you wore to the Delta Gamma...

""Kegs for a Cause'' semiformal,

like, a bazillion years ago?

[ Murmuring ]

- Yeah.

- What's your point? Because it's a classic.

- If a dress works, you work it hard.

- Oh.

See, that is sweet. And loyal.

Girlfriends sticking up

for each other.

I like that, a lot: Keep that:

- Anyway, are you guys ready to catch this?

- Yeah.

Just think about it,

feel it, catch it-

One, two, three!

[ Narrator]

I would have seen the signs if I'd been there:

It's all right there:

Look at Emma's eyes-Like a hunter's:

And Liv's hand-How would you like that

clasped around your throat?

Not that either of them can imagine

hurting each other at this point:

Why should they?

They've been inseparable for 20 years:

Okay, slow down.

- Why can't we run with iPods?

- We can't run with iPods because iPods...

are for people who can't be alone

with their own thoughts.

I'm literally running circles around you.

Do you know that?

Do you know how many things

I can think about at once?

You know what a multitasker I am.

You're not enjoying my conversation?

Is that what you're saying?

- I'm hurt. I am very hurt, Liv.

- I gotta go.

- All right. Have a good day.

- Love you.

- Call me. Tell me how the meeting goes.

- Watch this power walk.

- Whoo!

- WhooI

- [ Bell Dings ]

- Hey, did you get the changes to the brief?

- Read and highlighted in the cab.

- Great.

Purse. It's like the whole city

is made out of lint.

It's an aggressive approach, exploiting

the weaknesses of our plaintiffs case:::

and I think judicially

we'll find favor-

Particularly if we pulljustice Givens.

Thank you, Liv.

Our best associate, Mr. Simmons.

Maybe your approach

is too aggressive.

I mean, if we pound them:::

as you suggest, they'll hardly

be in the mood to settle.

Mr. Simmons, you don't-

You don't know me, but I-

I know you:

All you need to know

is how badly you want to win...

because we won't be settling.

- You're right. She's perfect.

- [ Bell Rings ]

- Oh, Ms. Allan?

- Hey, Robert. What's up?

I think Ms. Delgado

is looking for you.

Is she? W-Was she nearby?

- She- She's in her room.

- She's-

Emma, there you are.

- Oh, God, Deb. Hi.

- I know. Isn't it gorgeous?

God, I feel so blessed to have this body.

[ Chuckles ]

- You know, I am so late-

- No, no, no. Listen. You gotta help me out here.

- You know the debate team?
