Last Holiday

Synopsis: In morte veritas. Georgia Byrd clerks at a New Orleans department store. She defers pleasure: cooks gourmet meals, eats Lean Cuisine; likes a co-worker in silence; has savings, but hasn't left Louisiana. All that changes when a CT Scan discloses she has three weeks to live. She cashes her savings and heads to Europe's Grandhotel Pupp, where Chef Didier presides. She checks into the Presidential Suite, orders everything on the menu, snowboards, and comes to the attention of the chef and the hotel's powerful American guests: a Congressman, a Senator, a retail magnate, and his mistress. She has nothing to lose, so she tells them what she thinks. Will the truth set them free?

Hold it, hold it, hold it. Georgia.

Sister Abernathy is singing

three times as loud as you...

and she just had her tonsils out, sugar.

- How you gonna account for that?

- I'm sorry, Reverend, I thought I was.

It's all right, baby. It's all right.

Now, as an incentive for us all

to be in full voice...

on Sunday, our very own

Senator Dillings will be here...

to help us kick off our Community

Redevelopment Program. Amen.


Hi, ma'am.


Okay, here we go.

Domino, Lean Cuisine.

You take the paper towel, right?

Oh, and mayonnaise.

That's it.

- That's it?

- Yes.

- Hey, little mama, that pretty.

- Check it out, man. Yeah.

Let me holla at you for a sec.

Don't you got no time for nobody?

Hey, Miss Byrd.

Hey. Any problems with the car today?

Some gunshots.

Nobody mess with the car, though.

Okay, Darius, so you come by

in exactly 75 minutes and I'll be ready.

Yes, ma'am. Me, too.

Yeah! Welcome back!

Welcome back to Emeril Live!

Emeril Lagasse here. We're

making chicken four ways tonight.

Wait till you see this dish

that I got coming up right now for you.

Poulet Tchoupitoulas.

Poulet Tchoupitoulas.

Oh, yeah, baby!

You can't see this at home,

but he is happy, this chicken.

He's clapping for Doc Gibbs

and the Emeril Live Band!

He's just... Oh, yeah.

You gotta split him in half...

and then we're gonna make

what I call a paste.

This chicken, skin-side down...

Skin-side down.

Now, for this Poulet Tchoupitoulas...

maybe some of this fum blanc

would work.

So, a little splash like this. Okay?

Or a big splash!

Like that!

Bread pudding with onions,

with sweet corn, and andouille sausage.

Okay? Oh, yeah.

'Cause the Poulet Tchoupitoulas with

the bread pudding.


Look at that! That's looking good!

I don't suppose you're gonna have any?

Lord, no.

I don't eat nothing but my Lean Cuisine.

What is that book, anyway?

- How do you like them greens?

- Oh, man, it's the bomb!

Well, good.

I mixed them this time, you know.

Collard greens...

and of course, your favorite,

turnip greens.

- And I got plenty for your grandpa.

- Cool, thanks.


I just got these pants.

Always doing this.

Darius, what are you doing?

That is my private property.

- I was just looking. What is it?

- It's nothing.

It's just what it says, just possibilities.

Just things I'm interested in.

Including this guy?

- He your boyfriend?

- No.

He's just an idea.

I mean, he's a real guy...

Why are you snooping around

my stuff, anyway?

So, what's his name?


None of your business.

I'll tell you what his name is.

His name is lucky mother...


I know you might as well

go ahead leave my house now...

if you're gonna be using

that kind of language.

I'm sorry,

but short of you telling me his name...

I don't know anything better to call him.

His name is Sean.

- Sean Williams.

- Sean Williams, huh?

And you better not say anything

to anybody.

I ain't.

There he is, there he is.

Okay, I'm not gonna say anything.

- You just talk to him.

- No, I'm not going to talk to him.

...just to say hello. All right?

Go and talk to him. Stop him.

- Good morning, Miss Byrd.

- Mr. Williams.

What was that? Was that power flirting?

I don't know.

Oh, my, my, my.

You could crack a walnut with that ass.

Girl, stop!

Don't you have somewhere to be?

You know what we need to do?

We need to get you out of these

frumpy clothes and into something...

- that shows off the real estate a little bit.

- No. Rochelle! This is a workplace.

Seriously. Then you need

to go down there...

and you need to talk to Mr. Big Stuff...
