Remember Sunday

Synopsis: A lonely, down-on-her-luck waitress meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk and thinks that maybe, finally, she's met Mr. Right. The more Molly (Alexis Bledel) gets to know Gus (Zachary Levi), the more she's intrigued by him. But she's also mystified. Gus is absent-minded, preoccupied. Is he hiding something? The short answer is: yes. He's reluctant to share with her that since suffering a brain aneurysm, he's totally lost his short-term memory. Every day is a brand new day, his life starts anew. Every day he sees Molly he struggles to remember who she is and what she represents. Every day, he has to fall in love with her all over again.
Genre: Drama, Romance

Come on, Molly, pick up. I know you're there.

You're standing by the machine,

Please, look, I'm sorry. I'll make it up to you.

Please, pick up the phone.

- He wants me to make it up to me.

- By letting him do it again?

Haven't you figured that out yet?

Oh, of course!

It couldn't be helped. It was...

- A car thing?

Actually, nothing went wrong

with the car this time, it was...

- Towed?

- Well...


Yes! Uh... I brought flowers!

- I got flowers.

- You got plastic flowers...

And can we be straight for a second,

customers hate them. I hate them.

And if you were being completely

honest, you'd say you hate them, too.

Ugh, gum! Perfect.

That's so gross!

- Hi! Are you ready to order?

- Ummm, uh.

- Ummm, in your bag, maybe?

- Smart thinking. Y-yes, yes... yes!

- But you never are.

- Sam's in back, he needs to talk to you.

- Oh, uh... I like your haircut.

Why, thank you... Gus, but

my appointment's at noon.

Right, what I meant is, your hair looks

great, so... don't let'em change it too much.

- Hey, Sam. You OK?

- Yeah.

No, uh, I'm missing a stone, that

nice blue diamond. Have you seen it?

I think you were cleaning it the other day.

Gus, you were the last one to have it.

Never mind, we'll find it. Listen, Mrs.

Bing needs her brooch soon.

- Can you get to it?

- Mrs. Bing?

Mrs. Bing is the lady who uses too much perfume.

- Yeah, I-I wouldn't know.

- Well, don't worry, when you smell that, you'll know her.

Ok, uh, top piority, fix Mrs. Bing's brooch.

That's the big one not to worry about,

it's the diamond. The diamond I need.

And you. I need you.

Find blue diamond.

End of the month. Tuition due,

rent due, student loans calling,

my stupid booted car...

I'd just like one thing that

worked out in my favor, you know?

- OK. How much?

- Oh, no. No, Jolene, I cannot ask

you to loan me money again, no.

Let me at least help get your car out of jail.

Just... round number.

Well, uh...

past tickets, current tickets, boot removal...

it's like $175, $200!

Alright... OK.

- Here.

- I'm good for it.

I know.

Are you getting any closer with

that inheritance probate thing?

Mission Impossible? I'm starting to

wonder if it's all a lost cause.

I-I'm going to do things differently. I am.

Starting today! I'm going to get my money

situation straightened out, I'm even gonna...

Break up with Roger! You were right! What

kinda guy stands a girl up on her birthday?

See? Thatta girl! And do yourself

a favor. Find a nice, normal guy, for a change.

- He's out there.

- No one knows about you, Jolene.

- That you're a good person.

- See, well, that's we're roommates.

Because you're totally deluded.

Hey, Gus!

- Oh, hi!

- It's Bernadette and Max.

- We live right above you.

- Nice to meet ya.

- Come on, you know us!

- OK... alright.

OK, let's Gus go now. OK? Come on.

- Can you gimme back that five bucks you owe me?

- Oooh, ahh!

You don't owe him anything! How

many times do I have to tell you?

You stop telling Gus he owes you money!

That can't man help it,

he can't remember one day from the next.

Bernadette Max! Bernadette Max! Bernadette Max!

- Oh, great! Thanks Romaine!

- Yeah, see you next time, Molly.

Alright darlin', where you hidin'?


If you aren't using social media, then why not?

Where's your website, or your blog? Do

you know how to promote yourself on Twitter

and Yelp and Google Search? The possibilities

are endless and the bottom line

is, if you aren't conversant with how

to drive small businesses these days,

then you can't start one yet.

I want you to have a plan. That's

your assignment for Monday.

Tell me your plan. Got it?

You guys wanna see an example of a good template,

you can download the PDF off my website.

Right now I'm looking at some fresh flowers.

Smell good. Sweet.

I wonder what kind they are?

Yeah, make a note: Addie Mae's.

Definitely come back.

Um, hi. You don't know me, and, believe me, I've

never done anything like this, in my life, but, um

I just wanted to say thanks

for noticing the flowers.

You seem like a really, well, nice guy... and

I hope Mars comes out tonight, like you said.

Venus, you said Venus... anyway, um

Have a nice day, a nice... life.

Uhh, oh, my name's Molly.

I don't want you to let the grade discourage

you, because this flower shop is a fine

idea, but you're vision is unfocused. Think

about all the other competition in this town.

I just don't want you throwing your money into

some hole that you can't get yourself out of.

What do you know about what you're getting into?

I mean, tell me why a flower shop?

Well, some kids wish on stars.

I plucked petals off of daisies.

Getting a bouquet can j-just

make someone's day, and I...
