Great work on the Wharf project, Mary.

The mayor said the restorations

make the whole city proud.

Oh, well thank you Bob. Certainly

had the best team working with me.

That you do, but your leadership's

what's holding it all together.

I just want you to know I appreciate

all the hard work you're doing.

No one in this company deserves

a week off more than you.

Whoa! A week? You know I

can't stay away that long.

No, I'm just going to the

mountains for the long weekend

but I'll be back to work on Tuesday.

Well, call if you

decide to take more time.

We can't have your battery running

out when we're so close to completion.

Okay, I will. Have a good one!


- Hey!

- Hey!

Need help organizing the files?

- All finished.

- They're all yours.

Thanks. Will I be able to

reach you if anything comes up?

Uh... when I'm at the lodge,

yes. When I'm hiking, no.

So... do you think that

this is THE weekend'?

The weekend?


The weekend Kent pops the big question?

Oh, I... I don't know. I mean

we've only been dating for what,

a Year?

Well I can just picture it. Him at the

top of a mountain, down on one knee.

Wouldn't that be so romantic?

It would be romantic. But

honestly, proposal or not,

I am just looking forward to

getting to the great outdoors.

Party pooper.

You party your way, I'll party mine.

- Have fun with those!

- Will do.

- Good morning.

- Mary!

How good to see you darling.

I thought you and Kent

were in Silver Falls.

Oh, I'm just on my way to pick him up.

I'm amazed you can get that

boy outside the city limits.

Dad! He's a lot more

rugged than you think.

Where are the boys?

They're working their own jobs,

we see them every now and

then at the lumber yard.

You know, I still think they

should be working for you.

There's a reason it says

"and sons" on the truck.

I mean, you taught them

everything they know.

They have a right to try

to make it on their own.

Heck, we didn't see you and your sister

half as much before your grandpa's surgery.

Well' I mean, I have the Wharf project.

We all have something.

No, I just liked it when we

all spent more time together.

Times change, you'll get used to it.

I'm not sure I will.

How's grandpa?

He has his good days and his bad.

More bad than good lately. Listen Mary,

at some point we have to sit down

and make some hard decisions.

I don't want to talk

about it, all right?

Kathy's up there now with him, I'm sure

they'll both be very happy to see you.

All rig ht. Strong coffee!

We can't keep pretending he's improving.

She knows that in her head,

it's just taking her heart

a little longer to catch up.

Well, she'd better come around soon or

we'll have to make the decision without her.

Well we can make that decision now.


Oh, I see. It's taking your heart a

little time to catch up too. Isn't it?

He's my dad.


Grandpa, relax. His blood pressure

always spikes when he sees you.

Is that a bad thing?

He'd be worse off if he didn't see you.

We just all have to accept the fact

that you're the love of his life.

Oh... so Grandpa, how you doing today?

I'd be better if your sister

let me out of this room!

Now Grandpa, you know I'm not

the one keeping you in here.

Your doctor told you, you need to rest.

It takes a little bit longer to recover

from heart surgery when you're 80.

I'm as strong as an elk! Aren't I Mary?

Oh, you're stronger but you still have

to listen to your doctor and Cathy.

Are you headed to the mountains?


- Do me a favor?

- Of course! Anything for you.

Take me with you.
