WOMAN:

My father always told me

that he wouldn't be around

forever to protect me.

( DOOR HANDLE RATTLES )

He was an outlaw,

and he knew

his days were numbered.

He told me that the only person

I could ever rely on was myself,

and even that person

may let you down.

( MAN WHISPERS )

F*** this.

( BARKING CONTINUES )

( BREATHING HEAVILY )

WOMAN:

My father taught me how to fight,

to survive,

to never be a victim,

to never cry,

because those tears

would be used against me.

( MAN COUGHS )

WOMAN:
When he was killed,

I never cried.

Never.

MAN:

What the f***?

WOMAN:

Not once.

MAN:

I want you to be happy,

but it doesn't hurt

to be cautious.

It's not like you guys were

high school sweethearts, okay?

I mean, you guys met at a needle

exchange, for Christ's sake.

It was Narcotics

Anonymous, all right?

And she is the reason

that I am still clean.

Yes, and I appreciate that,

but there's still a lot

of unknowns given her history,

which has a habit

of repeating itself.

( CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING )

WOMAN:

My brother's a lucky man.

( CHUCKLES )

My dad always said

consistent luck was skill.

Well, then, my brother's

consistently lucky.

( GUESTS LAUGH )

MAN:
Prenups are

the norm today, Derek.

Marriage is business.

If it goes south, you're

going to need an exit strategy.

Ava already signed.

If you want to disown

or disinherit me, please,

draw up the papers,

and I will gladly sign them,

but I do not need an exit or...

-( PAPER RIPS )

- ...a strategy.

Now, is there anyone out there

I should introduce myself to?

Any family, friends?

Uh-uh.

That's okay. You've got us now.

We're your family.

PRIEST:

Please be seated.

( MUSIC STOPS )

Derek and Ava

have arrived

at this very special moment

in their lives.

"L, Derek..."

I, Derek...

- "...take you, Ava..."

- ...take you, Ava...

- "...to be my wife."

- ...to be my wife.

- Oh, my God!

- Freaking out.

- Freaking out.

- I'm not freaking out.

Bienvenido.

DEREK:
My grandfather,

he bought this

back in the '40s for nothing.

We used to come here

in the summer when we were kids.

But now my dad

thinks it's too rustic,

and he'll only stay

at the Four Seasons.

What do you think?

- It's amazing.

- Right?

Right there,

that is my grandmother

on her wedding day.

Oh, and this here,

that's my uncle

and my mom when she was...

two or three years old.

Wow.

You know, this is the first time

that I've actually been here

since she died.

She would have loved you.

I wish I could have met her.

Yeah.

Whoa. Whoa.

( DEREK LAUGHS )

Why aren't I driving?

I should keep

this rocket ripper.

( AVA LAUGHS )

Whoa! Yow!

(LAUGHS)

What?!

Whoo!

( CALYPSO MUSIC PLAYING )

What are you thinking?

I think I'm supposed

to be asking you that.

- Typically, yeah, but...

-( LAUGHS )

Oh, my gosh. Hello.

May I?

What's your name?

- Ricardo.

- Ricardo.

Oh. You're handsome.

He looks good on you.

It works.

- You think so?

- I do. Hello.

- Hello.

- Uh-oh.

- He wants his daddy back.

- And we'll take him.

-(LAUGHS)

- Come on.

Come on, little one.

Let's go.

You know,

you will be a great mother.

- You think so?

- Oh, I know so.

I didn't really have

the best influence.

Yeah, well, you know,

we both got an education

in how not

to raise your kids, so...

El bafio. I have to go

to the bathroom.

- That's Spanish for...

-( LAUGHS )

Learn something new every day.

All right, I'll be right back.

Hey, give me a kiss.

Do not go anywhere.

Stay right there.

Do not move.

( IAUGHIL19 )

- Hola. C6mo est?

- Bien.

Manny.

Ava.

Nice to meet you, Ava.

- Beautiful view, isn't it?

- It's gorgeous.

- Where are you from?

- Connecticut.

Do you know Earl Sanders?

Mm, uh...

I don't-- I don't think so.

He comes here every year.

He's from Connecticut.

Oh. Connecticut is

kind of a large space.

Si, si. I--

yo tengo familia--

I have family in Texas.

Okay.

Okay, not that close, but okay.

Babe, this is Manny.

He has family in Texas.

- Manny.

- Hey, man. What's up?

- Wow. What's up? Good.

- All good, all good.

- Welcome.

- Thank you.

Thank you.

So how much longer

are you guys on the island?

- A few more days.

- And nights.

Have you been to Cabarete?

I don't think so.

It's a beautiful,

beautiful place.

The longest zip lines in

the Caribbean, in the rain forest.

No.

I'm afraid of heights.

- That sounds awesome.

- Oh, come on.

- My friend runs the place.

- Zip line.

I can take you guys tomorrow.

And it's a very safe place.

Only one person

died there last year.

- Only one person.

- Yeah.

Relax. I'm joking.

I'm joking. How about dancing?

You guys like dancing?

Ooh. Prefer zip-lining, but...

Well, I love dancing,

but this one...

I can't dance,

so why would I--

My friend runs the hottest club

on the entire island.

We can go there.

I don't care.

-( IAUGHS) I'd love to.

- Well, we can do both things.

- You'd love to?

- Yeah.

I'll tell you

what I'd love to do.

- ( DANCE MUSIC PLAYING )

- ( SINGING IN SPANISH )

- Whoo!

- Come on!

( OVERLAPPING CHATTER)

( SPEAKING SPANISH )

Whoo!

( SPEAKS SPANISH )

Just one.

We don't drink.

' ISalud!

' ISalud!

WOMAN:

Gracias, Manny.
