Leave a message and I'll call you back.'

'Hi, Kat. This is Nick Mercer.

'Sorry I didn't get back to you last night

but I got your messages.

'All seven of them.

'I know you're nervous, Kat,

but this is what I get paid for.

'I'm running late so

I sent a messenger to pick up my ticket.

'Kat, stop worrying.

'Your ex-fianc will wish he never left you

'and your family will think we're in love.

'Trust me. I'll see you at the airport.

Can't wait to meet you.'

So sorry. I wasn't quite ready.

It's a plane ticket.

For a date. My date.

For my sister's wedding, in London.

You need to let go.

You're gonna have to help me.

# Oh yeah

# The daylight's fading slowly

# But time with you is standing still

# I'm waiting for you only

# The slightest touch and I feel weak

# I cannot lie

# From you I cannot hide

# I'm losing the will to try

# Can't hide it, can't fight it

# Can't hide, can't fight

# So go on, go on

# Come on, leave me breathless

# Tempt me, tease me

# Until I can't deny this loving feeling

# Feeling

# Make me long for your kiss

# Go on, go on

# Go on, go on

# Yeah, come on

# Yeah

# And if there's no tomorrow

# And all we have is here and now

# I'm happy just to have you

# You're all the love I need somehow

# It's like a dream

# Although I'm not asleep

# I never want to wake up

# Don't lose it, don't leave it

# Don't lose it, don't leave it

# So go on, go on

# Come on, leave me breathless

# Tempt me, tease me

# Until I can't deny this

# Loving feeling

# Loving feeling

# Make me long for your kiss

# Go on, go on

# Come on, leave me breathless

# Tempt me, tease me

# Until I can't deny this loving feeling

# Make me long for your kiss

# Go on, go on

# Come on, leave me breathless

# Go on, go on #

'... 356 to London Heathrow,

'all remaining passengers

please make your way... '

Harry, I'm not working,

I'm going to my sister's wedding.

Customer service

will have to survive without me.

But Kat, we've had three delays

and two reps call in sick.

And a 2505 on the 8:20 CPT to LGW.

And there's this guy on line two

who gut stuck with in-laws because

we couldn't get him out of Heathrow.

I'd love to help you, sincerely,

but I haven't seen my family in two years

and my flight leaves in 15 minutes.

Come on, Kat. Please, I'm begging you.

Bump the 14:
14 to the upper on 16:10.

What about line two?

Check my bags.

I understand, you want your family

to see you the way you see yourself,

or would, if you didn't feel

so victimized by them.


We regret that you were inconvenienced.

Unfortunately, we are not liable.

But just this once I'll refund your ticket

and credit you 10,000 frequent flyer miles.

Thank you for calling Virgin Atlantic.

Your first trip?

My sister's getting married

and the best man is my ex.

If I chicken out,

I wanna know where the exits are.

I'm not a knuckler, I fly all the time.

The reason I can't feel my legs

is that any second

my date is gonna sit down in 3B

and I need him to look really good today.

Hello, 3B.

Thank you.



Let's sit.

I'm glad you found it OK.

The airport... The plane, I mean.

I'm sorry we couldn't leave sooner. I know

you wanted to get settled before the party.

Work must be crazy.

Oh, I should warn you.

You know those families

where everyone's out of their mind

but they're your family so you love them?

Mine's not like that.

I love my dad.

But since he's my stepdad,

he's technically not family.

He's more like a hostage.

'Ladies and gentlemen,

'we will shortly be arriving

at London Heathrow.
