Father of the Bride Part II

Synopsis: In this sequel to "Father of the Bride", George Banks must accept the reality of what his daughter's ascension from daughter to wife, and now, to mother means when placed into perspective against his own stage of life. As the comfortable family unit starts to unravel in his mind, a rapid progression into mid-life crisis is in his future. His journey to regain his youth acts as a catalyst for a kind of "rebirth" of his attitude on life when he and his wife, Nina, find how their lives are about to change as well.

Folks are blessed who make|the best of every day

Living by|their own philosophy

Everyone beneath the sun|must find a way

And I have found|the only way for me

I don't believe in|frettin' and grievin'

Why mess around with strife

I never was cut out|to step and strut out

Give me the simple life

Some find it pleasant|dining on pheasant

Those things|roll off my knife

Just serve me tomatoes|and mashed potatoes

Give me the simple life

A cottage small|is all I'm after

Not one that's spacious|and wide

A house that rings|with joy and laughter

And the one you love|in sight

Some like the high road

I like the low road

Free from the care|and strife

Sounds corny and seedy|But, yes, indeedy

I like the simple life

Life could be thrilling|with one who's willing

To be a farmer's wife

Kids calling me Pappy|would sure make me happy

Give me the simple life

Some find it pleasant|dining on pheasant

Those things|roll off my knife

Just serve me tomatoes|and mashed potatoes

Give me the simple life

Nina, come on. They're gonna|be here any minute.

Okay. We'll be right down.

Father of the bride.

I never thought I'd say this, but that|whole experience Pas a piece of cake...

compared to the roller coaster|I've been on this past year.

I admit it took me a while|to recover from the wedding,

but eventually life got back|to normal, which is exactly|the way I prefer life to be.

After the dust settled, I began|to realize what a lucky guy I was.

I had a wonderful home|filled with memories,

and completely paid for;

a wife I love just as much|as the day I married her;

a daughter, independent,|self-sufficient,

married, working, happy;

a son blossoming|in the middle of middle school;

and a son-in-law|gainfully employed,

and very often,|out of town on business.

Life was sweet.

I felt for the first time|ahead of the game.

Then it dawned on me.

I was a mere five years|away from freedom.

Soon I'd be a father with one kid|married and the other off in college.

And that started me|thinking.

What was I gonna do|with all that free time?

Anything I wanted.

Maybe I'd take up|fly-fishing,

travel to exotic places,|climb Mount Everest.

I was feeling|on top of the world.

And that's when|they lowered the boom on me.

It was like that old joke:|''All those who think they have|it made, take one step forward.

Not so fast, George Banks.''

It was about a year ago|when it all started.

Well, nine months ago|to be exact.

I was on my way home from work|on a perfect fall day.

The leaves were golden.|The air was crisp.

And I couldn't help thinking|what a charmed life I was leading.

Yep, I was a happy man.

Hey, hey!

- Hey, Dad, you hear the news?|- What news?

- I don't know. She wouldn't tell me.|- Matty, phone!

- Got it!|- Who wouldn't tell you?

- Hey.|- Hi, George.

Do you think it's|what we think it is?

What? What? What is it?|Somebody tell me what's going on.

Bryan called and said|to be here at 6:00 sharp,

that he and Annie have|some important news to tell us.

This is one of those moments,|George. I can feel it.

Oh, my.

Hi, honey. Oh, don't worry,|okay? I'm sure nothing's wrong.

- How do you know?|- Well, I, I know.

- Oh, you know?|- No. I don't-- I don't really know.

I just know nothing's wrong.|Now, come on. Come on inside.

- Can I fix you a drink, George?|- No, thanks.

Nina, you don't think Annie's|been transferred back East, do you?

No, honey. Something tells me|this has nothing to do with work.

George. George. You sure|you don't want a glass of wine?

'Cause she always said|a transfer was a possibility.

And I, for one,|would hate it if they moved.
