Caitlin: Is everything okay?
Nash: Yeah, everything's good. You know, you didn't have to spend all this time down here. Not like you didn't have anything else better to do?
Nash: I appreciate it.
Caitlin: You're welcome.
Nash: I guess I should go and be with her. Thanks again.
Susan (voice breaking): God does have a plan, Nash. I want you to know that. ... Angela's daddy was killed in a plane crash when she was 11. We never got over it but... but life went on and it's been good.
Nash: I've had to tell a lot of people that their loved ones have died. ... I know that there's never an answer to the 'why' question.
Susan: No. But you go on. (motions to Joe & Caitlin) But you don't have to walk alone.
Joe: Do you want some company?
Nash: Sure. ... I was just standing here thinking about the last time I saw her. ... We had this argument. ... I know it didn't mean anything but now I can't-- I can't get it out of my head.
Joe: What was it about?
Nash (voice breaking): Whether or not she was gonna marry Evan.
Joe: She-- She shouldn't have married Evan.
Nash (crying): Joe, I had all these-- all these dreams for her. These pictures of what her life would be like had it all... it all pictured in my mind.
Joe (puts a hand on Nash's shoulder): Well, that's what we parents do.
Nash: Oh, god, Joe. She was the best thing in my life.
Joe: I know, brother.
Nash: I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Ilatio: According to my analysis of the situation, the events leading up to the event and the subsequint retaining of rat whackers. I have reached the determination that the amount of repairs in full should be shared equally by landlord and tenant.
Nash: What? (takes folder) Let me see that. (to Joe) So we just paid this guy $2,000 for a ruling that we should split the cost of the repairs? (sarcastically) Gee, why didn't I think of that?
Ilatio: Typically, my clients don't.
Nash: If I didn't think that this was gonna cost me another grand, I'd arbitrate who's gonna pay his fee.
Caitlin (after Nash finds pieces of his broken mug): Nash, I am so sorry. In fact, I'm-- I'm mortified, I am.
Nash: It was kind of a special cup to me.
Caitlin: I realize that. That's why I've been on the phone for the last hour trying to replace it.
Nash: It's irreplaceable.
Caitlin: I will-- I will replace it.
Nash: Wait. (walks over to his desk, opens the drawer, grabs something and walks back over to Caitlin's desk) Here. (hands Caitlin a scarf) Hold this. It's a magic scarf.
Caitlin: A magic scarf?
Nash: Yeah, you just hold it up by the corners, you ready? (Caitlin holds up the scarf, Nash takes a folder and slides the broken pieces into it) Okay, now then, I need you to take the magic scarf and put it over the file.
Caitlin: Nash, come on.
Nash: Put it over the file. (Caitlin does so) There 'ya go. Say the magic words.
Caitlin: I do not know the magic words.
Nash (holds up an intact mug): Apparently, you do.
Caitlin: How did you do that?
Nash: Magic. (takes the mug and walks back over to his desk)
Caitlin: Oh, wait one second, Nash, come on. Let me see it. Where are the pieces?
Nash: What pieces? There are no pieces.
Caitlin (feeling in Nash's jacket): Come on, give 'em up.
Nash: I have no pieces. You know what? Here. (hands her mug) You can have this one. (opens desk drawer and pulls out another mug) And I'll just take one of these here.
Caitlin (laughs): Okay, alright. That was pretty good. You guys got me pretty good.
Nash (laughs, to Joe): Look. Almost a sense of humor.
Joe (laughs): Yeah, I can see that.
Nash: But there's no reason for you to married right now.
Cassidy: Why? Because you think I can't handle going to school and being married at the same time?
Nash: No, no, no, no, Cassidy. What I'm saying is, what is the compelling reason for you to get married now?
Cassidy: My reasons are my feelings. Love, desire for commitment commitment.
Nash: And a piece of paper does all those things, huh? (Cassidy gives him a look) Alright, alright, I'm sorry. I'm not passing judgment on your relationship, I'm just trying to give you the benefit of my experience. Cassidy, you're just now starting college, in four years you're going to be in a completely different space than you are now.
Cassidy: And you think that I'll have outgrown Evan?
Nash: Maybe, maybe not.
Nash: Let's just say you've have.
Cassidy: Daddy, maybe what was right for you isn't right for me.
Nash: Baby, I think that you are very responsible but let's not forget that I have been down this road before. I just want you to take advantage of my experience.
Cassidy: Are you saying that you wish you hadn't married mom?
Nash: No, I'm not saying that. I'm just thinking that it might've had a better chance of working if we hadn't rushed into when we did.
Cassidy: You know what, Dad? I just want you to admit it, because you've never approved of this relationship and you can't stand the thought of us being married.
Nash: Cassidy, that is not true. I am just suggesting that you wait.
Cassidy: Why? So you can get used to it?
Nash: No. So you can.
Cassidy: Listen, whether I marry Evan tomorrow or the next day, or in a week, or in a month, or in a year, I'm gonna do it, dad. That's it.
Nash: Okay, look, we're going to have to work together so I suggest we resolve this thing right now.
Joe: Cool. How?
Nash: I suggest arbitration.
Joe: You mean hire a professional arbitrator?
Joe: For $2,000?
Nash: How do you know it's gonna cost $2,000 bucks?
Joe: Well, because my nephew, Ilatio, is a member of the American Arbitration and Mediation Society, that's how.
Nash: Fine. I'll throw in a thousand, you throw in a thousand.
Joe: And it's alright that he's my relative?
Nash: Is this the same Ilatio that negotiated you down to 2 percent from 100 percent of the family business? Yeah, I'm good with him.
Joe: Alright, cool. I'll give him a call then.
Nash: Good, give him a call.
Nash (sets down a mug in front of Caitlin): Peace offering.
Caitlin: What is it?
Nash: Uh, Bridges' brew. My grandmother's secret recipe. It'll cure what ails 'ya. And if you haven't got an ailment it'll give 'ya one and then cure it.
Caitlin (takes a sip): Mmm. It's soothing. What's in it?
Nash: If I told 'ya it wouldn't be a secret.
Cassidy (about the ring she found): Evan... Please tell me that this isn't what I think it is.
Evan: It is what you think it is. (gets down on one knee) Cassidy Bridges, will you marry me?
Cassidy: Oh, Evan. (they kiss)
Evan: I have to tell you that I love you with all my heart. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
Cassidy: I love you, too. But--
Evan: Oh, no, no, no, no. Say whatever you want, just don't say 'no', please.
Cassidy: I have to think about it. I'm-- I'm not saying 'no', it's just that this, y'know, it's a huge decision and I really need to think about this. ... Evan, I'm not saying no.
Nash: Hey, bubba. What's up?
Evan: Hey. Look, there's something that I thought you should know first, out of respect.
Nash: Know what?
Evan: I'm gonna ask Cassidy to marry me. I mean, I-I know that you've had your reservations about our relationship, y'know, in the past but I truly love her. I promise that I'm gonna take care of her and keep her safe. (Nash is silent) Are you gonna say anything?
Nash (laughs): What do you want me to say? That I think it's a good idea? 'Cause I don't, at least not for right now. Evan, Cassidy's a freshman in college, aside from a variety of other issues. I don't think that she's ready to make that kind of decision in her life right now.
Evan: I love her, Nash. I don't think that's ever going to change.
Nash: So, what's the rush?
Evan: There is no rush. I just feel that this is something that's right for me at this point in my life.
Nash: Evan, you know that you can feel strongly about something and not need to force it.
Evan: Look, Nash, I know how you feel, okay. And I appreciate it. I just wanted to let you know what's going on.
Nash: Well, good morning. Except, I thought that you were gone.
Caitlin: Oh, I am gone. Meaning that I don't work here anymore but I do have a job to do so I will be coming here occasionally to work.
Nash: I see. Well, that makes a lot of sense.
Caitlin: Look, don't open the subject because the subject is closed.
Joe: We can still count you trying to close us down, right?
Caitlin: Look, I'm here to review some cases whether I close you down depends entirely on what you've done. (walks away)
Joe (laughs): I'm not scared of her. Are you scared of her?
Nash: My people tell me that I'm feeling something but I'm not sure what the hell it is.
(On the phone)
Joe: Hey, Nashman it's me.
Nash: Ugh, don't tell me we have a homicide.
Joe: No, we have rats.
Nash: You have what?
Joe: Rats. We have rats in the attic.
Nash: Joe it's 3am.
Joe: Yeah I know but Inger wants you to make 'em go away.
Nash: Yeah I made a magic spell, poof. Are they gone?
Joe: She's serious, man.
Nash: Yeah so am I. It's 3am Joe. I'll take care of it first thing in the morning. Bye. (hangs up)
(After Joe falls through his ceiling after he attempted to hit a rat with a tennis racket)
Nash (looking at the huge hole in the ceiling): Wow.
Joe: Yeah, wow.
Nash: Did you get him?
Joe: No came close though, he's pretty fast.
Nash (looking at the racket Joe used): I'm thinking that you need one of those oversized carbon fiber ding-dongs.
(After Joe falls through his ceiling after he attempted to hit a rat with a tennis racket)
Nash: Not a bad place to put a skylight though. How you gonna fix it?
Joe: Dov the contractor came by this morning. Uh, here's his bid.
Nash: What are you givin' that to me for?
Joe: Uh, you're the landlord.
Nash: Yeah that's exactly right. I'm the landlord not the dope that took a dive through the ceiling.
Joe: You don't expect me to pay for this do you?
Nash: Well, yes I do. You see you shoulda waited for Jeff he's the professional.
Joe: Well the professional was too busy playing craps in Vegas. He didn't do the proper job in the first place. Which is why I had to go up there, sorry.
Nash: No, no, no, no, no, no. You have to pay for this. You need to take care of it, you know why? Cause I'm not going to.
Nash: No. Oh, you're other option you could put a skylight in right there.
Evan: Uh, Nash, lemme ask you something. Is there something going on between you two?
Joe: Oh, no. I just have a big hole in my ceiling courteously of my landlord.
Nash: Oh, yeah that just spontaneously caved in, didn't it? Or do you wanna tell them how it happened.
Joe: Yeah right after you tell them about the rat infestation.
Nash: I don't have rat infestation. (Evan just walks away)
