Ooh, uh-huh...



Yeah, yeah...




I'll have the sketches

for the winter line

ready in a week or two.

Yeah! Yeah. Yeah.

Don't worry.

It's going great.

Okay. Bye.

...This will be

The first time anyone

has loved me...



Are you ready?


My final dress-fitting

at the bridal salon, remember?

You said you wanted to come.

I'm so sorry, Amy.

I'm way behind on my deadlines.

The department stores

want to see the "look book"

for the winter line

in a month.

I don't have sketches

to make patterns

to make clothes.

You have to eat.

I'll buy you lunch, and you can

just sit on the pretty couch

and tell me how gorgeous

my dress is.

It's your sworn duty

as maid of honor.

You're right.

Of course, I'll come.

Maybe we can get cheesesteaks

from that truck

across the street.

You're kidding, right?

Why, what do you want to eat?

Cold-pressed juice

and kale chips.

How are we even friends?

James is going to die

when he sees you in this.

I don't think he cares

what I wear to the wedding.

He'd be happy if we got married

in a ditch.

It's kind of sweet,

though, right?

I mean, he just--

he loves you.

You'll have that too someday.

I know you will.

Probably not,

but that's how I want it.

I like my drama-free life.

Sounds kind of

boring to me.

Hey, not everybody needs a guy

to live happily ever after.

That is what

everyone says,

but no one actually

means it.

Okay, how long have you and I

been best friends,

and have I ever not meant

what I've said?

Okay, fine.

You will be

alone forever.

Thank you.

You're still coming with us

for dinner tonight, right?


To Nick's new restaurant?

Yes, but don't try

and set us up again.

That was years ago!

And I didn't technically

try to set you up.

Um, you locked us

out on your balcony.

[Laughs] Yeah!

It was a great idea.

Can I help it if there

weren't any sparks?

What kind of food

does Nick serve

at his restaurant?


American Fusion".

Sounds like

a game show.

Keep an open mind.


So James,

Amy tells me

your business

is doing well?

It's been

a slow start,

but I love helping

regular people

with their savings.

Sure beats

Wall Street.

It's all about new clients.

Where would we find

a house with a basement

in the city?

We don't have to

live in the city.

I can give financial advice

from anywhere.

So, what? What

are you saying?

You don't want to

live in Manhattan?

Hey, Nick!

Hey! You guys

finally made it in!

It's about time!


do you remember Molly?

Blame her. She's as impossible

to make plans with as you are.

Congrats on

the restaurant, Nick.

It looks great.

Thank you.

Yeah, it's, uh, it's been

a long time coming,

but it's good.

How about you?

How's, uh, how's the shoe biz?

No sales at all.

Mostly because

I'm not in the shoe biz.

Right. It's, uh...



Yes! Okay. Well, let's get

you guys a table.

-Come on!

-All right.


Don't worry.

You'll be a huge fan

of Nick's after tonight.

The food here

is amazing.

Whoa, whoa. Wait.

You've been here


It was before

he officially opened.

You were

at your gallery late

for that show

with the paintings

made out of

coffee stains.

-Coffee grinds.


Well, we're here now.

Bride and groom,

maid of honor,

Nick, the best man.

All finally together

in the same room, right?

Let's just enjoy the meal.


For our first course--

a smoked quail egg marinated in

an oak-aged apple vinegar foam.





Tastes like, uh...

an eggy pickle.

Two things I enjoy...


Not bad for

our third weekend!

Yeah, Isaac,

I didn't get the oysters

again today, though.

Didn't get any seafood

this week.

Sorry, partner. Minor cash-flow

issue until we find our legs.

We'll be stocked up

for next week.

All right. Thank you.

You keep the doors open...

...And you keep 'em

coming back.

Thank you.

[Cell phone alert chimes]

What is it?

I don't believe it.

Are you okay?

It's about this investor,

Frank Van Allen.

He's been caught in

some pyramid scheme.

Did you know him?

He invested

all of my parents' savings.

They've frozen all our assets,

pending the investigation.

Now my father wants us

to postpone the wedding.

Oh, Amy, I am so sorry.

They were supposed to make

the final payments tomorrow,

but now they can't.

I can't afford

a wedding for 300 people.

I know.

Let's go back

to your place

and talk this over.

We'll figure

something out.


Amy, I'm sure there's some way

we can still make

this wedding happen.

If we can find

a good location,

we could still have

a nice ceremony.

[Cell ringing]

Excuse me.


I know.

Nick, can I talk to you a sec?


What's up, buddy?

I think I know

someplace we can do this.

No, no, no. Look.

You know I'd do anything

to help you guys,

but I don't think the inn's

a good idea.

The place is falling apart,

and... well...

it hasn't been open

since my mom passed--

I know.

It's worth a try.

Are you

kidding me?

I have a tapeworm.

Oh, come on,

you didn't enjoy any

of the meal I prepared?

I'm sorry, Nick.

I'm just not a "foam" person.

I don't even like


Okay, fine.

Next time, I'm gonna make you

macaroni and cheese.

How's that?

You promise?
