[3OH!3 featuring Katy Perry:


Great job, you guys.

Has anyone seen Stacy?

Stacy? Stacy, where are you guys?

Hey boss.

Table 4. Come meet us.

Hey, did you check out

that cute guy by the Monet?

The one breathing on the Monet?

I called security.

I think it's best to steer clear of him,

given my track record.

Is that for me?

- No, no, that's my...

- Thanks! I'm starving!

The show is going great. To Beth!

- Our fearless leader.

- Job well done.

Thank you, guys.

My God. Is that Brady Sacks?

Beth's ex? Where?

Not a funny joke.

And I'll tell you why.

Because if Brady

had the nerve to show up here,

I mean at my event, no less, after he...

- Dumped you like yesterday's trash?

- Ripped your heart out

and fed it to the Central Park pigeons?

Come on, I'm not even

over your breakup yet.

Well, I am, OK?

In a big way. Brady Sacks?

Who cares?! That's what I say.

He's right behind me, isn't he?

- Brady...

- Yeah...

- Great show.

- Great show, guys.

What are you...

What are you doing here?

Look, I know you're crazy busy,

but there's something

I need to say to you.

Something I think'll make up

for what I put you through.


I've got 3 words for you,

Beth Martin.

- I was wrong.

- Did he just say he was wrong?

A year ago, when I broke up

with you, I felt like

you cared more about your work

than you did about me.

Yeah, I remember, Brady, really clearly,

when you broke up with me

in the Applebee's.

I'm sorry about that,

but I'm here to tell you that...

- I get it.

- Can you hear?

Barely. I think he said he gets it.

He gets it!

I'm ready to jump in again,

in a big way.

You want to jump in again?


Yeah. I mean, maybe. If it's slow.

You made me realize

that it doesn't matter

how hard someone works,

as long as you love them enough.

Yes. I can't believe

that you're saying that.

I'm just a little overwhelmed.

I met someone who works

just as hard as you do,

only now I can accept her for that.

- We're getting engaged!

- Beth's getting engaged!

Did I just hear that right?

Our host and curator, Beth Martin,

is getting engaged?

[Patrice Irving, Richard Wagner:

Rockin' Bride]

No, I'm not. I'm not getting engaged!

Not tonight, not to him.


But maybe.

Maybe in the future sometime.

I don't know. With someone else.

Got to see how it pans out. OK?

Well, at least it wasn't

in the Applebee's.

Worst day ever.

- Joan?

- Sis! Guess what?

I'm getting married!


His name is Umberto.

Umberto! How sexy is that?

We met on a flight to Italy

and now we're getting married. In Rome.

That... Joan.

He's the one, Beth. I know it.

I can't wait until you meet him.

And when I do, I will have known him

for almost as long as you have.

You know what?

You're not exactly a role model

when it comes to relationships.

OK, maybe not, but that is because

I have a relationship with my job.

I love my job. And when I find a guy

that I like more than my job,

that's how I'll know he's the one.

OK, so basically what you need

is a male version of yourself.

Well, he doesn't have to be blonde.

You know that I mean this

with all the love in the world,

but 2 weeks, Joan?

That's not long enough.

That's not even enough time

for a credit check.

When you know, you don't need proof.

You just know.

- Be happy for me, B.

- God, I am! I am.

I am.

She's doomed. I mean, come on,

you meet some Italian guy

in first class, you date him.

- You don't marry him.

- She's so lucky.

Just imagine working in a place

where they sort men into classes.
