(voix off) Avez vous vécu une de ces journées, ce genre de journée ou l’on sent qu’il y a quelque chose de bon, et peut être que le bonheur qui flottait dans l’air me concernait... Il est à moi!

 

(chez les Lass) Reggie s’est réveillée tôt, cela fait un an que sa soeur est décédée, elle voudrait emmener Jd au cimetière.

(Wafle Haus) George arrive, Ruben, Daisy et Mason parlait justement d’elle. Ils parlent de l’abandon de son travail, elle n’a pas de travail, pas d’argent... Roxy est de mauvaise humeur... George n’a pas de post it aujourd’hui c’est sa journée!!

 

Dans la rue, Mason demande conseil à Daisy et Roxy sur son potentiel séduction... il n’a pas couché avec une fille depuis des lustre et il prie Daisy de lui trouver une fille... ( Roxy s’amuse a repérer les faucheurs et un illuminé passe à côté d’eux avec un panneau «the end is near/ la fin est proche» 

Ruben lui se retrouve à un cours de yoga, le professeur le convie à se joindre au cours... 

George profite de son jour pour aller à Happy time récupérer son poste... mais Dolores ne l’entend pas de cette oreille, George n’en croit pas ses oreilles. Elle repart bredouille quand Dolores arrive en panique devant l'ascenseur... Murray (son chat) est malade il faut qu’elle aille s’en occuper, le coursier qui se moque de Dolores se retrouve avec un coup de teaser...

Au cours de Yoga, Ruben suit le mouvement et reçoit des compliments du prof et de sa voisine de tapis...

(Chez les Lass) Joy et Clancy se disputent au sujet de la grand mère de George, et lorsque le téléphone de Clancy sonne... Joy le menace de lui faire bouffer s’il décroche, c’est à ce moment que Reggie arrive et demande comment la journée va se dérouler, le réveran dira une prière, Joy annonce qu’elle parlera elle aussi, quand son mari lui demande ce qu’elle va dire elle lui répond « à toi j’ai rien à dire» ...

 

Dolores et George arrivent chez le vétérinaire, c’est une nouvelle réceptionniste pas très futée et le docteur que voit Murray habituellement n’est pas là... Dolores est en panique! George la soutient et surveille un enfant ( qui a un post it jaune...) qui s'intéresse de trop près à Murray... elle lui pose une tonnes de questions auxquelles il ne répond pas, elle en vient à lui dire qu’il n’est qu’un sale petit enfoiré... Dolores lui demande d’être plus polie! George se dit que ce n’est peut être pas son jour..

 

(on voit qu’une pierre est taillée...)

 

Au cours de yoga, Ruben attrape l’âme du professeur, et celui ci meurt en faisant la charrue indienne.. le professeur n’en revient pas, personne ne se rend compte qu’il s’est brisé la nuque... 

Dans un magasin, Daisy conseille Mason pour aborder les filles.une vendeuse Punk retient leur attention. Les phrases d’approche de Mason lui rapportent un nombre incalculable de baffes! (jolies jambes, l’ouverture est à quelle heure?) .... et Daisy ne peut pas s'empêcher de baffer à son tour son ami! Pour s’amuser! 

(Chez les Lass) Reggie cherche une chose à déposer sur la tombe de sa soeur, 

 

Murray voit le vétérinaire, quand le vétérinaire tente une blague, George le remet à sa place et continue de soutenir Dolores.

 

Au cours de Yoga, le prof ne sait pas quoi faire, il regrette de ne pas être sorti avec cette jeune femme blonde qui suit son cours. 

Mason perd son post it, il se trouve face à la vendeuse punk qui lui demande s’il n’est pas un faucheur d’âme... et le voilà dans le débarras du magasin avec la vendeuse à hurler qu’il est un faucheur d’âme... 

(Chez Ruben) Le prof de yoga enseigne sa discipline à Ruben. Il ne se cache pas de profiter  de son boulot pour avoir tout un tas de femmes. Le prof de yoga trouve qu’il a eu une vie pleine d’amour et d’affection.... puis il part dans son monde.

 

(on suit le chemin de la pierre tombale...)

 

Reggie lit des cahiers appartenant à Murray. George soutient Dolores et lui conseille de faire confiance à la vie et au destin. (George se dit que même si les choses se passent mal, elle finissent toujours par s’arranger...) Le jeune faucheur fait son travail ( la victime est un lapin...) et rassure Dolores... son chat s’en sortira. Elle propose à Dolores de rester, celle ci la remercie et lui annonce qu’elle l’attend à Happy time dès lundi! Elle rattrape le jeune faucheur, Charly, elle lui demande d’ou il vient et lui tend le billet de 20$

 

(la pierre tombale est bientôt prête) 

 

Reggie demande à voix haute «ou es tu George» avec une table oui-ja sur les genoux. Son père est au téléphone, sa mère se prépare et renonce à mettre du rouge à lèvre.

 

(Voix off) le jour ou j’ai laissé tomber mes études, j’étais allongée sur mon lit, ma mère est entrée elle m’a dit «tu sais George il n’y a pas de coup d’essai, pas de répétitions générale.» Ce a quoi j’ai répondu «peut être qu’aucun rôle ne m’intéresse...» 1 mois plus tard j’étais foudroyée par  la lunette des WC de la station mir... je me demande si quelqu’un d’autre écoutait quand j’ai dis ça...

 

JD, Reggie et ses parents sont aux cimetière, le prêtre termine son sermont et accompagné de Clancy ils s’éloignent. Joy et Reggie parlent, Joy regrette son manque de gentillesse, de tendresse, elle lui manque. Reggie souhaite être seule puis finalement elle appelle sa mère... elle installe une photo d’elle et George en souvenir.

 

Ruben,Daisy, Mason, Roxy et George se retrouve sur la tombe de celle ci, ils sabrent le champagne ensemble. «A George, morte comme nous! » Le champagne à le goût de la vie qu’elle n’a pas eu. Le cimetière est aussi le lieu ou vivent les sépulcreux... 

Ruben dit à George que certes elle ratera beaucoup de rencontres, choses, mais elle aura au moins cette nouvelle vie et qu’ils sont là et qu’ils l’aiment. 

Dans la vie finalement on est jamais sur de rien....

 

 

 

Quel beau final de la saison 1!!!!! 

Start of episode
George is cycling down the road of the Lass's residence

GEORGE (VO) Did you ever have one of those days?
(man drops bag full of rubbish) Not one of those kinds of days, the other
kind, the kind of day where there was something in the air, (there is a
slight breeze) something that had been on its way for a while, something
good and maybe because I think about myself like all the time, I was sure
that something on its way was about me (20 dollar bill floats down towards
her and goes into the spoke of her wheel, she picks it up) It's mine.

Fast tracks to Reggie looking out of her window, camera comes into the
bedroom where JD is lying on the bed. Joy comes into the room

JOY: You're up early. Did you sleep okay?
REGGIE: JD woke me up a couple of times but I had a really great sleep
(looks at the clothers that are on Reggie's bed)
JOY: Is this what you are wearing today?
REGGIE: (she nods) Can JD come to the cemetery?
JOY: No!
REGGIE: Why?
JOY: Because he's a dog (Joy walks out the room)
REGGIE: Fuck her, you're coming

breakfast, more than 20 bucks, just more

that they made. Straightens out her hair and gets back to her job. Mason
comes out belt undone, out of breath with his jacket half on and half off.
Goth Girl comes back to him and slaps his face)

and I loved some wonderful women - housewives, shop girls, lawyers, social
workers, black white, Asian I was like a kid at a parade
RUBE: Yup I've seen that parade(goes into a cobra position)
ARUN: You are not one of those monk hats?

You should have talked to the pretty woman in my class, she liked you
RUBE: (shakes his head)No
ARUN: You think too much
RUBE: I don't think enough
ARUN: You are a wise man (starts wagging his finger) and a wise man knows
how to live
RUBE: A wise man knows how little he knows
(Rube opens his front door for Arun to come through)

Murray, he was just in the background
GEORGE: No, this isn't true
DOLORES: It's like that Joni Mitchell song
(George looks over to Charlie who flicks his comic book page over which
shows the post it, George tries to get a better look)
GEORGE: I think you need to concentrate on......
GEORGE (VO) Wha..what! What could I possibly say

GEORGE: .....on the fact

GEORGE (VO) Could I tell Dolores I died earlier this year and I am waiting
for the tiniest bit of perspective
GEORGE: That the universe will take care of things

GEORGE (VO) Huh
DOLORES: You really believe that?
GEORGE: Yes I do
DOLORES: I don't know
GEORGE: I think you are going to have to trust that everything's going to be
okay, that the universe is going to take care of you, of Murray
(starts crying, resting on George's shoulder)
GEORGE (VO) As I held Dolores's hand I realised the words I wasn't sure of,
or believed, that comfort was enough, maybe it was enough to tell Delores
things were going to be okay because even if they weren't they would be some
day

(Marci walks across camera with a rabbit in her arms)

MARCI: Mr Zettsman?
(man gets up with his box)
MARCI: The vet said he couldn't find anything wrong with your rabbit
(She puts him back in the box. Boy looks at his watch and starts to pack
away his things)
MAN: Eddie has been acting so listlessly. Is he sure?
GEORGE: You got to go?
BOY: Yup, my mom's picking me up
GEORGE: Yeah my Mom too
BOY: (To Dolores)Your cat's going to be okay

BOY: Can I pet him?
MAN: Sure. Eddie likes kids, (talking to the rabbit) isn't it sweetheart
BOY: (boy takes the rabbits essence) Cool(Walks off)

CLANCY: No No. Um she seems okay. No no I don't know anything. Listen I'll
call you later

Change scene
Joy putting on red lipstick, then changes her mind

GEORGE (VO) The day I dropped out of college, I remember lying on my bed,

Scene change with a limousine pulling up to the cemetery

GEORGE (VO) my mother came into my room and she'd been crying, she stared at
me for a long time and then she said "You only have one shot at life
Georgia, this is no dress rehearsal" and I said "You know what Mom, maybe I
don't want to be in the play" a month later I was killed. I wonder sometimes
if someone was listening

(zooms in to George's gravestone. Georgia.L.Lass, 1985-2003, Rest In Peace.
JD, Joy, Reggie Clancy and the reverend standing over George's head stone)

CLERGYMAN: ...And I commit the soul to thee. Amen
(hands Clancy the book)
CLANCY: Thank you very much(Clancy pats the reverend on the back and walk
off with him)
JOY: Do you want to go first?
REGGIE: Shouldn't we wait for Dad?
JOY: Do you want me to wait (JD walks off)
REGGIE: Not really
(walks up to the grave)
JOY: Georgia? I'm sorry I wasn't sweeter(Reggie looks at her mum) I'm sorry
I ever criticised your appearance because you were a beautiful girl
REGGIE: What about the time you forgot to pick her up from the airport?
JOY: That was your father's fault
REGIE: If you say so (looks over to her father, who is talking to the
reverend)
JOY: Can I please just do this how I wanna do it (sighs) I'm sorry, I'm
sorry I didn't show you as much affection as I felt for you, because I did
love you and I miss you
REGGIE: Nice mom
JOY: Thanks honey. You want to say something?
REGGIE: Yeah but can you go away
JOY: Seriously?
(nods. Joy moves away and Reggie gets a picture out of her pocket)
REGGIE: Mom!(beckons her back)
JOY: Thank you
REGGIE: I miss you too, probably more than mom does.
(Puts the photo down on the grave) This is us fishing at the lake last
summer and if someone swipes it, I have the negative. (looks at her mother)
We could come back (looks back to her mom)
JOY: Okay?
(walks away and puts her arm around Joy)
JOY: Maybe tomorrow

Transition
still at the cemetery

(someone picks it up)
GEORGE: It's me with my little sister. Her handwriting is exactly like mine.
Can I swipe this?
RUBE: It's your grave(Daisy puts some flowers down)
GEORGE: Thank you Daisy
DAISY: I keep forgetting how young you were when you were killed
GEORGE: (to Rube)Is this a nice headstone, I mean is it pretty?
RUBE: It's a good one. Top draw
GEORGE: Where's Mason?
(Mason comes over after having a pee)
RUBE: (looks round for him) Here he is
GEORGE: Hey Mason
MASON: (Picks up a bunch of flowers) I took that guy's soul last year
(Rube opens his bag and brings out a bottle of champagne and glasses)
Right cocksucker, glad he's dead, there you go (gives her the flowers)
GEORGE: You can put them there (Toad is on the grave stone)
GEORGE: Rube, thank you (gives her the champagne)Everyone, champagne's cold,
shall we drink it now?
GEORGE: May I
MASON: Sure
RUBE: Here's the flutes, try not to snap them in half, they belong to my
aunt Lillian
MASON: Well it is a good day to be a reaper( pops the cork and laughs. Rube
pours)
MASON: Okay, here's to George. Dead like us. Cheers
DAISY: To Georgia
GEORGIA: To me
MASON: To you
ROXY: To you
Okay, that's really good. I have a confession to make
RUBE: Graveside no less
GEORGE: I have never had champagne before
DAISY: Wow, I've had too much
RUBE: What does it taste like to you
GEORGE: Like I wish I'd never died. (looks around)It's pretty where I am,
isn't it?
(everyone else looks round)
DAISY: Very pretty
RUBE: They usually put cemeteries on the edge of town, out of the way, next
to railroad tracks, highways. I like them in the middle of town, everybody
can see us
DAISY: I love cemeteries, the quiet stories and headstones
ROXY: I hate them
GEORGE: Why?
ROXY: 'Cos they live here
GEORGE: They who?
ROXY: Gravelings, fool
RUBE: They're over there
(three gravelings messing about, knocking over a statuette)
RUBE: (shouts)Get outta here.
RUBE: A little more bubbly everyone?(pours more) Georgia, I'm sorry for your
loss, for things you won't do, people you won't know and who won't know you
but there's this, this life and you are loved, Drink up
MASON: Cheers
(under her breath)This is no dress rehearsal
RUBE: What's that?
(shakes her head)

GEORGE (VO) some drunken writer once said that there are no great second
acts in life, I'm not so sure that he knew what he was talking about, or
maybe he just never knew me (finishes off the glass)
RUBE: So we'll just let George kill the bottle?
GEORGE: I think we should
(Rube pours again)
GEORGE: So any post its tonight?

(VO) That night a man was killed by a speeding car and I was there to take
his soul. The street on which he died turned into a flowing river of light
and he hesitated at its banks. I told him to take a deep breath as it is the
last one you will ever take because sometimes in life or in death I guess,
you just never know
