01x09 - You Can't Always Get What You Want

Post by bunniefuu »

Previously on "The Baker and the Beauty"...

Ay, Abuela and I, we had such a fun time planning my quinces.

Turned out to be one of the best days of my life.

- But you're nothing special.

Your work is derivative.

- It's over.

- Put these back on.



Because as of now, you're gonna let me take care of you.

The surgery went well.

I'm confident we got the entire tumor.

You were sick and I didn't even notice.

Since we've been together, your family's fighting,

the bakery's in trouble...

- Asbestos?

- It has to be removed.

You got arrested, I almost lost my company.

I think we need to stop seeing each other, Daniel.


Every culture has its own way

of making the transition from childhood to adulthood.

Confirmation, bat mitzvah, sweet ,

and in our case, a quinceañera,

a girl who's .

It's a rite of passage.

Aside from your wedding,

it's supposed to be the biggest day of your life,

and mine has been my mom's obsession

since the day I was born.



A quince is all about spectacle.

The perfect dress, perfect hair.

It's a night for everyone to celebrate,

to cut loose, to forget their troubles.

But my quince has to do more than that.

My qince has to fix my family.


My parents are on the edge

because the bakery's still closed.

Mateo's life has been complicated

since he kissed Vanessa.

And he hasn't smiled since he stopped making music.

And Daniel's making cookie pizzas at Duffigan's

to help make ends meet,

and to try to take his mind off Noa.

But how is he supposed to forget a woman

who is everywhere?


So your parents, Mateo's music, Daniel's love life, how is one party supposed to fix all of that?

I don't know, but my quinceañera is the only w*apon I have.

I've gotta try.

Okay, so the million-dollar question is pink and turquoise or purple and gold?

We need you to break the tie and I promise we won't try to influence you either way.

- Okay, okay.

- Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm?


- I gotta say, I love the pink.

- Yes!

- Pink?

- I'm sorry!

- Oh, I knew I loved this girl.



Okay, so now we have to talk about music.

I was thinking we'd take a run at Mateo.

Ooh, mamita.

I don't know if that's a good idea.

He's pretty serious about being done.

I've known him for years.

I've got tons of dirt and I'm not above blackmail.





How'd it go with the inspector?

The good news is, we got the all clear to reopen as soon as the renovation's done, so two weeks?

But there's bad news?

The price of the renovation has doubled - because of the extra work.


What are we gonna do?


I'm sorry, Natalie.

Your quinceañera's gonna have to wait.


No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

This is practically a dieciséisañera.

Mari, do I look happy to you?

- We have no money.

- We can put it on a credit card.

They're all maxed out.

Por favor, there has to be another way.

I'm sorry.

I've made the decision because it's the only decision to make.


- Mom.

- Mari.


We can't let this happen.

We need this quinceañera now more than ever.

My family needs it.

Maybe we could start a GoFundMe page.

We'd need a lot more than that...



I think I know a way we can solve all the Garcias' problems at once.

Somebody order soup?

Oh, I'm starving.


This is my specialty.

Oh, you made this yourself, did you?

Of course.

I told you, everything I brought you, I made myself.


Well, judging by my taste buds, I would say that you've got every great chef in Miami on standby.

Well, I love you and you deserve the best.

But Noa, really, giving me your bedroom?


This is the best mattress in the house.

I appreciate the Florence Nightingale treatment, but I'm just curious if between prepping for the movie and taking care of me, you're not running away from baker boy just a little bit?

Lewis, you know I don't have time for that.

Oh, come on.

You're not a robot.

I thought you didn't like him.

Well, you do.

Look what was happening to his life and to mine.

It was like the universe was giving us signs.

- No, I don't believe in signs.



- Oh, wow.

- What?

I think another superfan jumped the fence.

- Wait, is that Natalie?

- Oh.

It's a sign.


I-I believe in signs now.

I don't know if I should be impressed with Mom or really worried about her.

Great, thank you.


I just locked down the gazebo at Centennial Park.

Great, we can show up early and scrape off the dried chewing gum.

Bro, we have to think positive.

We cannot let Natalie go without a quinceañera.

We have the venue, let's call our cousins, tell them it's a potluck, and BYOB.

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, that sounds janky.

Maybe we could hang up some Christmas lights, like, have a really nice vibe.

Yes, that sounds jankier.

- Mateo.

- What?

But it's a plan, okay?

It might sound janky, but at least it's a plan.

Uh, I think I've got a better one.


Hi, Daniel.

I can't believe you did this.

It's wrong on so many levels.

Daniel, who else do we know who can snap her fingers and...

Voila, a kickass party?

Me and Mateo were already planning a party.

That would kick no ass.

I appreciate you coming, but we can't take your charity.

- It's not charity.

It's me helping a friend.

Like you helped me in Puerto Rico.

We were together then.

We're not now.

You broke it off, remember?

Come on, Natalie's had a really hard year.

New school, being outed by a dinner guest who'd like to make it up to her?

Besides, I still owe you that third wish.




- Yes!

Hey, hey!

Okay, okay.

We have a lot of work to do.

I got to call my party planner, the florist, the caterer.

We need a venue.

Wait, we can use the café.

And Daniel can bake the cake.

Of course.

- And Mateo will DJ.

- Mm-hmm.


I really appreciate you asking.

Mateo, my quinceañera won't be my quinceañera if I don't have MC Cubano.


What can I say?

When you're right, you're right.

So yes?




- Hey, Vanessa.

I thought you sold the place.

Oh, um...

Yeah, the buyers cancelled escrow when they couldn't get a loan, so now I have till the end of the week to sell it again or Eli Weiss is canceling me.



That sucks.

I'm sorry.

Sounds like you need a party.

- Come to Natalie's quinceañera.



is that a good idea, like?

Why wouldn't it be?

MC Cubano is coming out of retirement for one night only as a gift to Natalie.

So wouldn't it make sense for his former manager to be there?


- Come on.

Vanessa, I've missed you and you know my live sets are better than any other set.

Wait a minute, you're right.

Live MC Cubano is better than studio MC Cubano, especially considering his studio is in a closet.

- Okay...

- That's what Marlowe needs.

He needs to see you in the flesh.

- Come on, V.

- Yes!

No, he made it absolutely clear, I don't got what it takes.

Because he didn't see you live.

And I wasn't standing next to you when you met with him.


This weekend, I will be.

Come on, you said it yourself, it's a one-time thing.

It's you rocking out for Natalie on her special night and dropping the mic.

We'll go big or we'll go home.


Come on.

Mateo, trust me.

- Yeah, okay, let's do it.

- Yes, yes!

There is one tiny, little, insignificant thing I should tell you about the party.


- Noa Hamilton is throwing it?

- And MC Cubano is spinning.

I mean, what can I say?

The woman knows talent.

I don't know, Vanessa.

Johnny Cash at San Quentin, Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, Queen at Live Aid.

These artists defined their careers by the connection they made with their live audience.

You really think this guy's that good?

I think he could be, yeah.

With your help.

I think you were quick to judge.

So all I'm saying is come and see him live, then decide.


- I'll come.

- Really?

As your date.



I started putting that book together before Natalie was born.

As soon as I found out I was having a girl.

years of planning.

And now because my family lacks the means to make my dream for my daughter come true, you want to swoop in and make it all happen?

Thank you so much.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

- Thank you so much.

- My pleasure, my pleasure!


- What's all this?

- Dad, I've been calling you.

Rafael, a miracle has happened.

The quinces is back on.

Noa is donating the party as her gift.

And I'm good with it.

You are?

Well, I'm not.

The Garcias don't take charity.

That's what Daniel said, but Mr.

Garcia, this isn't charity, I...

Thank you but no thank you for your generous offer.

And no, I don't want to talk about this anymore.

Rafael, perdóname.

I am not going to let you turn this into a Cuban macho thing.

You think that's what I'm doing?

Yes, I do.

You can't afford to throw your daughter a party, but you don't want anyone else to do it.

You're right, Mari, I can't afford it.

You know why?

Because of the hole that you got us into.

That I dug us into?

- Yes, you.


You pushed for this renovation, and pushed, and pushed, and pushed.

You wanted to move forward just as much as I did.

- No.

- Yes, you did!

What I wanted was for you to be happy.

I was fine with what we had.

You wanted more.

And now, we can lose everything.

You can do whatever you want to do, Rafael, but we are having this quinceañera, and I am making the decision because it's the only one to make.


I'm so glad Natalie wanted to use this expansion space.

It's like a way to get rid of all the bad juju.

Maybe it'll make your dad feel less like he's taking charity.


Speaking of, I take it he and your mom haven't made up yet.

Remember when I told you that my parents have all this passion?

It's great until they start fighting, then it's like "Clash of the Titans." Neither one give an inch.

I guess, even in the best relationships, people make mistakes and say things they don't mean.


Thank you for all this.

It's my pleasure.

If you have some time, I could use your help with one more thing.

- Easy, easy.

- Stop, I got it.

- Perfect, perfect.

- See?



I miss this.

They don't have butter cream in Cyprus?


I heard about all your yacht trips.

To Cyprus, Mykonos, Crete.

My yacht may have been to Cyprus, Mykonos, and Crete, but I sold it last year when I finally admitted that I get seasick.

- So you've in...

- In Miami, mm-hmm.

Looking after Lewis.


I'm sorry.

I-I just just thought that...

That was off partying, not thinking about you?

Honestly, yeah.


I see he's put you to work.

Hi, Mr.



Thank you for doing this.

My objection has nothing to do with you.

I understand.

Okay, so I'm gonna go get ready.

- I'll see you tonight.

- See you tonight.


It's beautiful.

Learned from the best.


It's almost as impressive as that video you made of the stone crab catch down by the pier.

You saw that?

- I've seen all your videos.

You're my son.

What did you think?

I think they're good, and I think you should keep making them.


I may not say this enough, but I'm very proud of you.

I'm proud of all my children.

Which is why you're going to the party tonight, right?

Of course I'm coming.

And you're going to enjoy it, too, for Natalie.

I thought you were supposed to be cheering me up.

I'm supposed to be taking care of you.


Okay, you know what?

- Ugh.

- Maybe this will help.

I get it if you don't want to talk to me.

But you should talk to somebody.

I talk for a living.

Not about yourself.



When did you get so good at taking care of somebody?

- I learned from the best.



You know what?

Maybe I'll just stay in tonight and we can watch a movie.

Okay, I'll go get my tux.

Look at you.

You look amazing.

No, you're going to that quinceañera.

Natalie is the one who invited you, and from what I can tell, she is the most adorable girl on Earth, so you're not blowing her off.

And when it comes to baker boy, you know, it's like you said to me.

Give it time.



Ahh, look!


Oh, my gosh, it's like our vision book come to life.


And no matter what happens with this expansion, this will always be the place where we had your quince.

Felicidades, mi niña.




Are you happy?

I'm happy that we're all together.


And are you happy?

I'm happy you finally came to your senses.

You know, for what it's worth, this quinceañera is everything Natalie deserves.

Well, for what it's worth, I'm glad that me being a part of it didn't keep you away.

So Marlowe St.

John, huh?

You look like you're having fun.

I am.

Daniel never looked at me the way he looks at you.

So thank you.

I would've rather found that out tonight than years from now.

Nice set.

Uh, nice as in, uh, "don't quit your day job"?

I deserve that.

But I'm glad you didn't listen to me.

I'm happy to be wrong.

Thank you.

That doesn't change the fact that your recordings don't do you any justice.

We need to get you into my studio.

Get some of what I heard out there, put it on something that people can hear everywhere.

Th... thank you so much.

Thank your manager.

That woman can't take no for an answer.


Yeah, that's right.

Uh, Vanessa, you know, you don't want to cross her.


Try googling "unhinged woman spills soup." [PHONE CHIMES]

You'll see what I mean.

Expect a call from my assistant on Monday.

She'll set something up.

Yes, yes, uh, thank you.

I'm sorry I didn't tell you before.

You know, it just didn't seem like first date material.


I like soft jazz, and long walks on the beach, and oh, yeah, I pee five times a night.



Well, maybe while you're on your little hiatus, you can focus on...

hmm, other kinds of intimacy.

It's funny you say that.

These past few weeks, I've been thinking about...

how time flies.


It's not like I made a conscious choice to avoid love for a decade.

I kept saying, "Not today.

Maybe tomorrow."

And then I blinked.


And ten years of tomorrows have gone by.

I just want to matter to someone.

Really matter.

And have them matter to me.

Well, I just want you for your body.


But I...

I suppose I could be talked into spending time together, seeing what happens.



There are a lot of people that I need to thank tonight, like my own personal fairy godmother, Noa Hamilton.


People say that you shouldn't meet your heroes, but she's everything I dreamed she would be.


Most importantly, I'd like to thank my brothers, the best brothers in the whole world.

And to the people that without whom there would be no quince because there would be no me, my parents, Mari and Rafael Garcia.


Mom, come up here.

Come up.


Tonight is not just about me, it's about celebrating the people who made me.

You're crazy.


No, I'm not.

You've always believed in me, no matter what.

Now it's my turn to believe in you.


Yeah, you can do this.

You can flip this house.

You can flip it, fix it up, sell it for double.



You know what I've always liked about you?

There's nothing you can't do.

What do you know about the music industry?


And yet, you got Marlowe St.

John to back me.

That's true.


You see value where others don't.

So stop selling that vision to other people.

Use it to build your own empire.


I never thought I'd use these words.

- Yes?

- But you're right.






I have to update all the kitchen appliances, first of all.

And then change the kitchen countertop, and maybe put in accent wall here and subway tiles there.

I mean, Mateo...


you're brilliant.

I'll leave you to it.

And then I'd make the whole back wall glass.

And I'd rip up the floors and...

and put down hard wood.


I did not say you could go.


One, two, three.

Now funny face.


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You're welcome.


Thank you for taking selfies with all of my cousins.

They're adorable.

Did Natalie enjoy the night?

The best.

Hey, she told me that Amy caught my parents making out, so it's a win-win.



You're so lucky to have a family like this.

It was really nice being a part of it again, even if it was just for one night.


I have this belief that you can't have everything in life, like I can't have this fairy tale existence and a happy ending.

And I'm seeing now that that's just a belief.

It's very limiting and has a lot to do with how I grew up.

Has a lot to do with how I grew up.


I have never been happier than I was when I was with you.

You make me laugh.

You remind me not to take myself so seriously.


You're everything that I never had...

and I'm sorry I got scared and I blew it.


Can you please forgive me?

I do forgive you.


But you're going to Morocco for three months, and my family needs me here.

I don't want photographers following me around.

I don't want to spend my life traveling to events and parties.

I want nights like tonight.

I never realized how much I enjoyed normal life until I left it.

It was so much fun being up there in the stratosphere with you...

But I'm back now.

On Earth.

Where I belong.


I get it.

I do.

Thank you.

I just have to focus.

Can I come in?

Do you remember Thomas Gold?

- The food critic?

- Yeah.

He just offered me a job making videos for the "Miami Journal" website.


Daniel, that's amazing.

I know.

He gave me this offer letter and asked me if I had representation.

I figured since you handle Mateo...

- Yeah, of course.

- Oh, thank you.

I thought you'd be weird about it.


Why would it be weird?

I'll read it and get back to you.

But I just have some work to do right now, so if you could...



Isn't that the same outfit you wore for Natalie's quinceañera last night?



Did you and the producer...

That is none of your business, Daniel Garcia.

You're right.

I'm sorry.

I'll let you get to it...








I have to admit, that was tremendo

party last night.


Yes, it was.

And the after-party wasn't bad either, Papi.


- Mm-mm.




I'm sorry, we don't open till next week.

Excuse me.

Can we help you?

Uh, hi.

I'm looking for the owners of Rafael's Bakery.

You found them, but we're closed for renovation.

Well, I...

I hear you make a mean pastelito.

But I'm actually not here for that.

My name is Rick Jameson.

I'm a real estate developer and, um...

I'm interested in buying your property.



- Well, that was fun.

- Inspirational.

In a Mussolini sort of way.

Do you have anything constructive to say?

Look, it doesn't take Sigmund Freud to figure out why you were angry, but that doesn't mean you should take it out on everyone who works here.

Everything I said was true.

It's not what you said.

It is how you said it.

I've always known baker boy was an idiot, but never in a million years did I imagine that he'd be stupid enough...

Look, what he said last night is what I said three weeks ago.

He doesn't wanna change his life, I don't wanna change mine.


End of story.




I love you.

Which is why I don't wanna stand here and watch you do the same thing you always do.

Pretending that you're okay, partying around town, throwing yourself in your work so much that...

I have a company to run, Lewis, and a movie I need to be preparing for.

Neither of which are as important as learning how to deal with this.

Because until you do, you are gonna be stuck in the same cycle over and over again.

Jumping from person to person, never figuring out what you really want.

Trust me.

I've been down that road.

It's a cul-de-sac.

Built a house on it, for one.

You'll never get those years back.

Wow, one good date with Trevor and suddenly you're an intimacy expert.




Probably shouldn't have said that.


He's right.

You have this pattern.

Oh, my God.

Not you too.

Ever since I've known you, since we were in high school.

Even with Colin.

The trouble didn't start when he was cheating.

It started before that, when he proposed to you and you said no.

And then your walls go up overnight.

Sell the bakery?

It's not just the bakery.

It's the café, the building, it's...

it's everything.

How much are we talking here?

Well, we don't know because we decided not to entertain any offers until we spoke to all of you first.

You'd really consider selling?

We're not sure, but with you kids growing up and moving on with your lives, this is an opportunity for your mother and me to ask ourselves, is there something else we wanna do with our life?

We know it's a lot to take in.

Well, speaking of new opportunities, Thomas Gold offered me a job making videothe "Miami Journal.

- Wow!

- What?

- Oh, my goodness - Good for you!

- That's amazing.

- Congratulations, papi.


And their website gets hundreds of thousands of hits and I get to do what I've already been doing, but with a real crew and a real paycheck.

So even though the idea of selling the bakery is crazy, I...

With me taking this new job, I feel like it's not my decision to make.


Mateo, what about you?

They better pay extra for that state-of-the-art recording studio you made me.

How much did those egg crates cost you, you know?

Listen, you guys do not have to decide right now.

Well, I will.

The answer is no.

Absolutely not, okay?

- You're not selling.

- Sweetie...

Newsflash, this isn't just a business.

This is our home.

Where would we live?

- Wait a minute.

We're just talking, okay?

- Yeah.

- Are you sure?

Because it sounds like you're halfway to doing.

And by doing, I mean making the biggest mistake of all of our lives.

...was the same as what we're spending here.

- Mm-hmm.

- We can't...


Oh, no.

We tell her to not repeat her patterns, and she does this.

It's like she's literally throwing it in our faces.


Davis, of course.

Noa is expecting you.

This way.



You look great.

Thank you.

Congratulations on the movie.

You made the introduction.

You look uncomfortable.

I didn't expect you to call after Puerto Rico...


Let's not revisit that.

Actually, can we?

I think it might be my last chance to apologize.

You'd asked me not to go, and I went and I acted like an idiot, and I'm sorry.

I didn't wanna believe it was really over.


That's the benefit of hindsight.


So are you gonna tell me why you called?

Have you eaten yet?





What are you doing here?

I need your help.

Is that Mateo's necklace?



I mean, yeah.



he left it here.

You know, when he was doing his whole MC Cubano thing.

But here, give it back to him.

Do you know the real estate developer Rick Jameson?

I tried Googling him and all I could find was some random stuff and then a weird Linkedln page.

There's a reason for that.

He likes to keep a low profile, right?

He wants to make you believe he's small-time to hide the fact that he's very well connected and has very deep pockets.



He works for a billion-dollar real estate trust called Cooper and Sons.

They pay guys like Jameson to act as intermediaries to see if he can get them a better price.

Trying to make a good deal doesn't make them bad people.

No, but what they do once they get your property does.

They go into neighborhoods, remove the local businesses, and bring in national chains.

So not only would we be giving up our business, our home, our bakery would be replaced by some soulless hipster coffee bar that you could find in any mini-mall in the country.

So Piper and Lewis tell me that I like to put walls up when people get too close.

So it's true then.

I mean, Noa, when we first broke up, I wasn't even sure that you noticed.

I just assumed that you weren't that into me.

And then we got back together, I...

I sorta realized that it's part of the price we pay for being who we are.

I was just really hoping that this time would be different.

Is this about the baker?

This is about me.


Noa, look.

I mean, I think it's almost impossible for people like us to be in a relationship with a normal person.

Hey, just because it didn't work out with this guy, doesn't mean that there's something wrong with you.

And you've wanted to be an actor your entire life.

My advice is focus on that.

And you don't need to wait for the filming to go to Morocco.

You should just go, now, today.

- Now?

- Yeah.

Just go.

I mean, how are you supposed to become someone else when everywhere you look, you see Noa Hamilton?

Noa Hamilton, Noa Hamilton.


Just go.

Take a risk.

Get lost.

So you think Mom and Pop would really sell the bakery?

Yeah, well, if they do, you got a sick job waiting for you.

I thought Vanessa hooked you up with that producer guy.

Oh, yeah, Marlowe St.


Yeah, but one studio session doesn't guarantee a career.

Dude, Vanessa believes in you.

And so do we.


You know, none of this would happen without Noa.

Thomas Gold, my videos, the expansion...

Oh, yeah.

So what happened?

Last night, Noa.

You two looked really good.

She wanted to try again and I said no.



That's the irony.

Last night, I told her how much I love my life the way it was.

But now, with this new job opportunity, it's possible that my life could change anyway, so now I'm wondering if I made a mistake by saying no to her.

Well, I'm no expert, but I would imagine that...

the right woman makes you better.

Makes you walk a little bit taller.

Makes you feel like anything's possible.

Now, that doesn't mean that when you meet her, the circumstances are ideal and that can get really tricky, but I would hope those could be overcome...

If she's the one.


I should get back to work.


It was really good to see you.

Clear the air.

I think I'm gonna take you up on your advice and go to Morocco early.

I'm kind of excited.

I haven't had an adventure on my own in a while.

You know, I don't have to be in London till the end of the month.

- Colin.

- I know.

But it just made me think about you and me, you know?

Before the world got to us.


Those were good days.


Leave soon?

How soon?

As soon as possible.




Let me guess, you got this idea from Colin, right?

You've lost your mind.

She's lost her mind.

Well, actually, if you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

Noa, you cannot just leave.

All the travel arrangements are already in place.

Really, the only reason for me to stay is if you or Piper say that there's something that I must handle myself here.

Oh, you mean like the therapy session that you should be running to right now?

Okay, Noa...

Noa, hey.


This morning, you were biting people's heads off and now you're running out the door.

Noa, this is exactly what I was telling you not to do.

Daniel broke my heart.

Is that what you want me to say?

He broke my heart, and three weeks of therapy is not gonna fix this.

So please, guys, let me move on.

Let me focus on a dream that I can actually make happen.

I'll go.


You expect to get by me with that face?

Just a lot going on.

Sometimes, it's hard to figure out what's real.

That's easy.


I went to see Noa to tell her about my new gig.

I see.

And she was with her ex.


When I see them, they look right together.

Me and her, we don't.

Sometimes, you gotta listen to your heart, mijo.

Not your head.

Even if it seems completely wrong.

Like me getting in front of that camera of yours.

But it feels about time we share some of the Garcia magic with the world wide web.

Come on, it'll help with your new job.

You're ready to show the world how you make your pastelitos magníficos?

No, no, no, no, no, no.

I have something better.


I am Rafael Garcia, Daniel's father, and today, we're making my family's fabled tocinillo el cielo,

or heavenly custard.

I've made this dessert hundreds of times, but I never got it right because my dad refuses to share the "secret ingredient." After today, it will be a secret no more.


Pop, you're good.

Well, you think you got your talent from nowhere?




So now what?

One hour of baking, one hour of cooling, and then we'll see if we captured the magic or not.

♪ Don't try to deny what you feel ♪ ♪ Or tell yourself it isn't real ♪ ♪ I know you're afraid 'cause you've been b*rned ♪ ♪ But that heart of yours I know, I know ♪ ♪ I will earn ♪ - [LAUGHS]

- Someone's inspired.

- You like it?

- Actually, yeah, I do.

I can feel the passion in it.


Oh, hey, I almost forgot.

Vanessa told me to give this to you.

She said you left it.

Why is your face doing that?

What is my face doing?

What's your face doing?

I wouldn't read too much into...


Did you and Vanessa...

Oh, my God, no, no, no, no, no!




It just happened, all right?

We had too much to drink, the mood was right, and we made love.

- [GAGS]

- I know.

I know!

I know.

I am such a bad brother!

Cain is a bad brother.

You are the worst brother in the world.


Wait, do you like her?

Yeah, I do.

I'm crazy about her.

I think she likes me too.

What are you gonna do?

I don't know.

What's funny is you two actually make sense.


We do?

Here's my advice.

Tell her how you feel.

If she feels the same way, you go to Daniel.

And if she doesn't, then you take this to your grave.

- Oy.


Your father will let you know when it's ready.

A minute too soon and it's all for nothing.


Thought I heard voices in here.




This is my son Daniel.

- Pleasure.

- Same.

Did you not get our message?

- I did.

- Oh.

So what are you doing here?

Well, I'm here because I wouldn't be very good at my job if I took no for an answer.

Look, Mr.

Jameson, don't take this personally.

I know you and your company are used to getting your way and you think that money can buy everything, but you're wrong.

It can't buy history and you can't buy community, so we're not interested.

Humor me.

I did my research.

I know how to make things worth your while.

If you take our offer, even after paying off every single debt, you will have enough money to change your lives forever.


What did I miss?

I told you about Cooper so you wouldn't sell, not so that you'd pump them for the next offer.

Mamita, nobody pumped.

It turns out telling a buyer to shove it is a great bargaining technique.

- That's right.


Well, it's nice to know that for enough zeroes, our integrity is for sale.

- Ay.

- Natalie, watch your tone.

You know, when people ask me about our place, I tell them how special it is.

Waking up every morning to the smell of fresh pastries, walking outside and seeing a line of people just waiting to try our family's food, people who have become our friends.

But maybe that just doesn't matter to you guys anymore.



Hi, you've reached Vanessa Carmen Sanchez.

Please leave a message.

Go away.

Yeah, we both know that's not gonna happen.

Move over.

Listen, I know that the change we're considering is a big change, but that's part of life.

This one doesn't have to be.

Mamita, in a couple of years, you're going away to college.

Yeah, but I always thought that no matter where I went or what I did, I'd always have this place to come back to.


it's home.

Sweetie, this is just a building.

Home is wherever we are together.

But that's just it.

We're not gonna be all together.

Listen, bakery or no bakery, Little Havana or Princeton, however many roofs we live under, we will always be together.

You don't know that.

Oh, yes, I do.

'Cause we're Garcias and you didn't get that family that goes away, remember?

You got the family that smothers.

And I'm gonna smother you forever and ever.

Knock knock.

You think I'm gonna let you go to Morocco without making sure you've got everything you need?

You don't know me.

I'm sorry I was so horrible this morning.


Oh, honey.


were only medium horrible.


Come on.

You have a flight to catch.


I'm sorry I can't go with you.

No, don't be sorry.

You have your treatments.


Plus, I told you if you don't get better, I'm gonna k*ll you.



Hey, so what time is the car coming to pick you up?

: , from the office.


No, no reason.

I thought maybe I'd drive you.

You, drive me to the airport?


I wanted points for offering.

This is gonna be the best tocinillo you've ever had.

Get your camera ready.


If you guys actually decide to sell, I'm really gonna miss this place.

It's the end of an era.

And the start of a new one.

Everyone ready for a taste of heaven?

Yes, we are!

That's what they used to call me in high school.

Chilled and timed to the minute, folks.

Here we go.

The moment of truth.

You know what?

Mijo, why'd you put the camera away?

This is the best part.

That's why I put the camera down.

So I can experience this with my family.


You ready?



- Oh!



Thank you, but this is not a beauty contest, eh?

- Let's taste.


Looks good.

- Mmm, thank you.

- Pop.

- Sí.

- Mmm.


Wow, Pop.

You didn't time anything, didn't measure anything.

How'd you know it was gonna come out like that?

I didn't.

Truth is half of the time, it falls apart.

But if we never try something because we're afraid it wouldn't turn out perfectly, we wouldn't live.

That's good, Pop.

- Real subtle.


- Doesn't mean he's wrong.

- That's right.

I appreciate what you guys are trying to do but the Noa Hamilton chapter of my life is over.


- Hello?

- Baker Boy, don't talk.

Just listen.

Noa's going to Morocco.

- I know.

- Shush!

What part of "don't talk" do you not understand?

She's leaving tonight.


The car is picking her up at the office at : ,

which would be fine, except for one problem: she is in love with you.

I don't know what to say.

You do know what to say.

You just need to get in the car and come and say it.

I saw her today with Colin.

She's not in love with Colin.

But the two of them make sense.

Since when does love make sense?

You guys have been listening?

- Yes, of course.

- Duh.

- I'm your mother.

- Lewis?

Who are you talking to?


It was a work thing.

Nothing for you to worry about.


- She's going to Morocco.

- So stop her.

Pop, you are the one that said it.

She makes my life crazy.

She makes it impossible.

But she makes your life.

Daniel, if there's one thing you must not do, it's to leave the words "I love you" unheard because they were unsaid.


Bro, just tell her you love her.

I would.

I'll get the truck.

Noa, I'm gonna bring your bag down to the car.


Oh, God.

I leave you alone for five minutes and...


Kay, we got this.


Don't you answer your phone?

- It was on silent.


We're here early.

Well, she left already.


Why didn't you stop her?

She snuck away.

She hates good-byes.

She joined the Navarro College cheerleaders.

What does it matter?

You've gotta get to the airport.

What's her flight?

Do I look like a travel agent to you?

- Well...

- Who are you?

I'm his younger...

It's the nonstop to Casablanca but you'll never get past security without a ticket.

I got you.

I got you.

I will spot you...

$ .


You guys have room in that t*nk for one more?

- Oh.


- Don't touch me.

- Do you need help?

- Don't...

stop touching me.

- Sorry...

okay, okay.


Mateo, stop calling.


What the hell do you want?


Look, I wanted to apologize for last night.

And explain.

This should be rich.

- You told him to Google me?

You know, now's not a good time.

You called me a vindictive soup slinger!

Hey, I did not call you that.

So what, this was all a part of your big plan?

Make him believe I'm crazy so you could have sex with me?

- Oh.

- BOTH: What?

Am I on speaker?

Where are you?

I'm leaving my own body.

Hey, Vanessa.


as bad as it sounds.

You had sex with her?

Last night?


No, no, no.

We don't have time for fratricide right now, okay?

Outside, now.

I'm sure it'll be fine.

Oh, good, a street fight.

We're right on schedule.

- Daniel...

- Come on.

Make a joke.

Make a funny excuse.

Say something, Mateo!

Are you serious about her?


I really hurt Vanessa and I don't want that to happen to her again.

So what I wanna know is are you serious about her?

God, I am.


And I'm sorry that it's weird and I'm sorry that it's bad and I swear that I...

I didn't even notice her until you guys broke up.

But then I saw her.

I really saw her.

And I tried.

I tried to stop thinking about her.

I was trying to stop feeling...

But it's like gravity, bro.

When I fall, I fall towards her.

Look, just say the word and it's over.

Don't screw this up.


You two make as much sense as me and Noa, so...


Go get her.

- What, you mean now?

- Yeah, she sounded pretty mad.

And a phone call's not gonna cut it with Vanessa, so go.

I love you.

I love you too.

Uh, sorry to destroy the touching moment with my retching, but we literally have a plane to catch.



Vanessa, I know you're mad at me and you have every right to be.

Got a two for one deal.



It's got heart, a good hook.

Thank you.

Songwriting might be one of your strong suits.

When you come in on Monday, I'm gonna introduce you to some of my artists.



That'd be...

that'd be great.

Yeah, I like it.

See you Monday.

- Enjoy my dad's tocinillo.

It might be his last.

Aren't you going to have some?

Sadly, even gorging myself on this heavenly custard doesn't seem to lift my spirits.



That's amazing.

I know, right?

I have an idea.

You ever notice how when you think about the future, most of the time, it's about what could go wrong?

Like, since you found out about the offer, have you even tried to imagine one good thing that could happen?

- Ugh.


Can you even do that?

Okay, that sounds like cheating.

For example, two words: new car.

New car.

- You think?

- For sure!


I like this.

- Mm-hmm.

- What else?

New laptop.

You're such a nerd.


And apparently very materialistic but let's not stop now.

Well, your parents...

Could finally slow down a bit.

Probably wouldn't be as stressed.

My dad wouldn't have to wake up at : a.m. every morning.

And my mom would get to see him a lot more.


Stuff like that.



Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.



Sorry, sorry, sorry.


Damn it.

Of course we get the longest escalator that's ever...

What happened?

Where's Daniel?

He hasn't answered his phone.

I don't know.

I left him with Lewis.

They're on the way to the airport to try to stop Noa from boarding.

Hey, are you okay?


Just wiped out.

True love is tiring.

No, no, no, no, no, no.

We have something to discuss.

Sit down.



Here we go.


are you kidding?


Does that look like cranberry Testoni sheepskin suede that costs more than your car?


Keep looking.


where are you going?

Okay, now that just offends me.

When all is said and done, we're Garcias.

And when it comes to our future, it's not just about your mother and me.

We want you to have a say too.

BOTH: Well...

- You go.

- I'll go.

I say we sell.

I know I've been all kinds of terrible today, but...

it's just because I love our life here so much.

And I'm scared.

But fear isn't a reason to walk away.

It's a reason to push forward.

I think when something is right, you feel it in your body.

In your bones.

Our bakery and our new café, it just seems right to me.

I think we should turn down the money and stay.

Well, if today taught me anything, it's that if you love someone, or something, you fight for it.

It may not always work, but if you leave, then you can never get it back.

So I vote...

we stay.


Well, I can't believe I'm saying this right now because I'm the one who wanted the expansion, but I vote that we sell.

I think it's time for a new adventure, Papi.

- It's a tie then.

- Mm-hmm.

We need Daniel.
