Royal Hearts

Genre: Romance
Production: Brad Krevoy Television Production

As Victor Hugo wrote,

"To love or have loved,

that is enough.

Ask nothing further."

In sum, ladies and gentlemen,

the customs and manners

of the Regency period

were exemplified

and celebrated

in Austen's

Pride and Prejudice.

Now it might seem quaint

and old-fashioned,

but Jane Austen's world

was defined by civility.

Social graces shaped society.

And while you might not

think it's relevant,

the lessons of gentility

and respect still have a place

- [bell rings]

- in the world today.

Okay, well, that wraps it up

for this quarter.

I expect to have

your final essays in my inbox

at midnight tonight.

[phone buzzing]

Hey, Jazz, what's up?


I'd love to,

but I have plans.

Yes, it's a date,

a lunch date.

Uh, well, I gotta go.

Okay, take care.

I was born

and raised here.

Just been me and my dad.

You know, it's funny.

When I was a kid,

I always wanted to be like him:

a roper, a rider.

But then I grew up,

and I went away to college.


Here I am, Assistant Professor

Kelly Pavlik,

Montana State University,

with an invitation

to lecture at Oxford next year,

once I'm...

done my doctorate.

So, uh, you're a...

You study a lot, right?

Uh, that's one way

of putting it.

Very cool. I read stuff.

You do?

Oh, yeah, big reader.

Captain Fantastic.

Totally awesome.

But not as much as

Lizard Man.

Lizard Man rocks.

So you read comic books.

Graphic novels.

Yeah, but that's not--

Touchdown! Yes!

Come on!


The ball was thrown behind him.


That was really rude of me,

and I'm sorry

about that, Judy.

I mean, I mean Kelly.

Oh, sorry,

did you wanna watch too?

Off the left side

for three yards.

So there I was,

telling him my life story,

and he didn't hear

a word of it.


His loss.

I thought so.


you're my best friend.

Tell me what it is

I'm doing wrong.

How about stop dating losers?

Well, they can't all be losers.

Maybe I should

just stop dating.

Oh, come on.

The way I see it

is you spend your time

living in books,

books that were written

when chivalry was still a thing.

So? I miss chivalry.

Kelly, the kind of guy

you're looking for

doesn't exist anymore.

There's gotta be

some guy out there

that's a lot less Lizard Boy

and a little bit more

Fitzwilliam Darcy.

If you don't want

to spend your life

being constantly


you're gonna have

to accept the fact

that times have changed,

and men have really changed.


Thanks for lunch.

Ms. Kelly Pavlik,

daughter of Henry Pavlik?

- Yes.

- Ah! Um...

Grimsby's the name.

I've been retained

to locate your father,

regarding a matter

of great concern.

You're looking for my dad,

Hank Pavlik?

Indeed, I am.

Are you sure

you have the right man?

Oh, quite sure.

It's vital

that I speak with him

in person, preferably,

as soon as possible.

Is he in trouble?

No, madam.

But it's vital.

Positively vital.

All right, come on in.

- [cow moos]

- [country]

It ain't there, neither.

Well, now I'm beginning to think

maybe it was actually

the filling station.

You know the Big A,

where I parked my car at.

So I hike on down there

and take a look-see,

and what do you suppose

I found?

Nothing. It ain't there.

I was going nuts, and I--

Looks like we got ourselves

company there, Zeke.

I think I'll head on down there

and see who it is.

Right in the middle of my story?

It ain't finished.

Well, I reckon you can finish

your story by yourself.

- Oh, and, Zeke.

- Yeah?

You took the pickup to town.

That's why you couldn't
