Heidi. Heidi.

Bumper Allen.

You are being deported

by the German government.


You guys are all here.

I had a nightmare about being deported.

It wasn't a nightmare.

You were having a recap.

This is your official


Obviously, it is totally,

but you should probably

explain it for Heidi.

It's your official deportation notice.

It says you have to leave

the country in six hours.

Also, happy German Unity Day.

How did this even happen?

You didn't apply for your work visa.

Not to ladle another turd

dumpling into the crap soup,

but this means you can't

perform at Unity Day

since it's after the

deportation deadline.

If you try, you will get arrested.

I was getting used to a routine.

Heidi buys pastries,

Pieter whines that

you are his only hope,

we prod you to be a better person,

and we have fun in the process.


The old Bumper would be crying

in a clean dumpster right now,

but I am not turning myself in.

I am getting my moment in the spotlight.

I wanna take it all in and wonder,

can a spotlight give you a sunburn?

How does light work?

It doesn't matter.

We gotta get creative right now,

figure out a "solush."

Because I'm not leaving without a fight.

Maybe maybe we could just explain

our situation and ask for a

visa extension at the Rathaus.

Yes, Heidi, the Rathaus.

The Rathaus? Okay.

Well, this will be easy.

Chuck E. Cheese is a friend.

Oh, you're right.

We should all give it one more try.

Well, we don't have that much time.

You have a costume fitting in an hour,

so let's see what we can do.

And in the meantime, let's keep

all of this information quiet.

Okay. Let's go.

Also, maybe we shouldn't tell anyone

that I sleep in my pants

and my shoes like a fireman.

Why are we nervous?

It's our dad.

He can't still be mad at us.

Just just be cool.

Oh, scoot over.

You know how much he

enjoys negative space.

Right, because it

reflects the emptiness

Of the human soul.

- Good call.

- Thank you.

- Klaus!

- Hi there!

- My man.

- You big guy.

What is the meaning of this call?

You're disturbing me.

Okay. We'll make it quick.

My client, Bumper,

whom you may remember,

is, unfortunately, being

threatened with deportation.

Can you make some calls?

You have friends in

the government, right?

Of course I have friends

in the government.

Who do you think tipped them off?

Wait, you got Bumper deported?

After Bumper made me

angry walking off my set,

I vowed to get back at him,

and there is nothing my children can do.


How do how do I get off?

I don't want to be here.

God. He really is a d*ck.


This is Bumper Allen, and he would like

to apply for a visa extension.

I really want to help you.

Okay. Then do.

But if you're beyond your 90 days,

my hands are tied.

In Germany, paperwork is

king, and I'm but a loyal serf.

Except on the weekends,

then it's just Hilda being Hilda.

There's nothing you

can do? Are you serious?

I'm German.

Of course I'm serious.

I can't believe this might

be my last day in Berlin.

I freaking love this place.

The parks, the high-calorie street food.

Most of all, I love that it

made me my favorite version

of myself by far.

I don't want you to go.

Since you got here,

my world has been a lot brighter.

The hell are you gonna

do back in America, huh?

Just go off and be

friends with people named

Brittany or Luke or something?


I am so sorry.

I messed everything up.

Don't apologize.

You didn't mess anything up.

You know, watching you has

made me want to get out of my own way

so I can be up there someday.

Being around you has

taught me to be brave enough

to step into my own shoes.

What do you say, for old time's sake?

I mean, of course.

Sit next to me.


This might be the last

time our butts touch.

- That is so sad.

- Hmm.

So what should we sing?

"Boulevard of Broken Dreams"

or "Walking on Sunshine, '

but we scream "not" at

the start of every chorus.

If you are leaving

here a broken dreamer,

I have just the song.

Just look at you ♪

Sitting there ♪

You never looked better than tonight ♪

I actually don't know the words.

And it'd be so easy ♪

To tell you I'd stay ♪

Like I've done so many times ♪

Don't fall in love with a dreamer ♪

'Cause he'll always take you in ♪

Just when you think

you've really changed him ♪

He'll leave you again ♪

Don't fall in love with a dreamer ♪

'Cause he'll break you every time ♪

Oh, put out the light ♪

Just hold on ♪

Before we say goodbye ♪

Thank you.

Obviously, all the romantic stuff

was just written by Kenny.

Was there romantic stuff in that song?

I just thought it was

about doors and lights

and stuff.

Hey, get away from my piano.


If you don't want us to play the piano,

just don't leave the piano.

Is that even his piano?

I hope Pieter and Thea had more success.

Great. You're here.

Well, try some costume options.

The Unity Day committee over

there will approve the look,

and we will be off to the races.

Assume the position, please.


Well, you don't need to stand like that.


It must mean something

different in America.

I'm sorry we're late.

Okay. We got a big failure.

- We totally botched the

- Pieter.

This is the Unity Day costumer.

And over there are the members

of the Unity Day committee.

Of course.

Oh, we are excited to get

Bumper dressed up for a big event

with absolutely no other

complications whatsoever.

- Yeah.

- Uh-huh.

Any luck at the Rathaus?

No. And what are you doing?

I'm smiling.

So any luck with Klaus?

No. In fact, he's the one

that got the government

to boil your spaetzle.

D'oh! Klaus!

Also, what is a spaetzle?

Oh, it's a homemade noodle.

I'm gonna call Klaus

back and tell him off.

And, oh, my face hurts.

It must be exhausting to

be a nice person or a wolf.

Well, well, well, if it isn't

so many blueberry muffins

stealing half of my spotlight.

What next?

You're going to steal my Unity Day look?

I hope not because I

can't pull off white.

It washes me out.

Gisela, excuse us a minute.

Oh, no problem.

I'll just cease to exist for 60 seconds.


We need to talk.

You have been doing squats.

Several thousand a day. Yes.

I think I know how to save

you from being deported.


You have to marry Thea.

Marry Thea?

Seeing Gisela's white

dress, it just clicked.

If you marry a citizen,

you can stay in the country.


I don't know if you know this or not,

but Thea and I are not in love.

Is this what you want me to do?

It is if it keeps you in Germany.

How long would we have

to pretend to be a couple?

What happens if I fall

in love with somebody else

or I already am? Never mind.

I mean, would Thea even go for this?

She once called me "Mr. Potato Head

if he couldn't grow that mustache."

Thea, do you wanna marry Bumper

so he can stay in the country?


You'd do this for me even

though we're not in love?

I'm an anarchist, and I hate my dad.

Those feelings are

as legitimate as love.

Well, let's get you guys married

and get you to the stage!

Okay. Yeah.

I guess there's no other option.

What every girl wants to

hear in her wedding day.

Oh, great.

This is gonna be great.

Let's go.

Go. Okay, let's go! Yes, run, run, run!

We'll go back to the Rathaus

and get you married before the concert.

But we have to make it look real

so they don't think

we're committing fraud.

Bumper's in day-old pants,

and Thea looks like

she's two wheels short

of motorcycle cosplay.

I know who can help.


Where's your lost and found?

My armoire is your armoire.


Oh, Thea.

You look so beautiful.

How do you feel about your big day?

Are you nervous at all?

A little.

Oh, well

you can borrow my Dove deodorant.

It keeps me from getting

the nervous sweats

when I pretend to be a

guest at a fancy hotel

to use their bathroom.

I feel excited to destroy my father

and make a mockery of the German state.

Are you okay?

I know I suggested all this,

but it didn't feel real until right now.

And well, I

I think Bumper will make a good husband.

Yeah. He seems like the type

to announce blueberry pancakes,

but then have none of the ingredients,

so you end up eating stale toast,

but the sentiment was there, you know?

Yeah. He's not my type.

If the temperature of

a cave was a person,

that's my type.

Yeah. That makes sense.

I'm kind of the opposite.

Thank you for being my maid of honor

and my friend.

My other friends are exactly like me,

and it can get tedious.

I like seeing the

world through your eyes.

Well, thank you for showing me

that somebody like you

could like somebody like me.

Come on.

Seriously, you have taught me

to be more confident and more myself.

Ugh. I cannot wait to tell

my middle school bullies

that I have a cool friend.

Luckily, they're all selling

essential oils on Facebook,

so they're super easy to find.


Now for the final touch.

Horns under the lace or poking through?

I can't believe an hour ago,

I was ment*lly packing my socks,

and now I'm getting married to Thea.

This is so crazy.

But you know, I've come so far.

The new Bumper doesn't

back down from a fight.

Man, my client and my best friend

is going to be my brother? Wow.

The rest of the world

might still hate me,

but I don't care because I

have you and you have my sister.

Did you just call me your

best friend and brother?

I did.

I got you.

Yes. Yes.

Oh, my God.

Christmases are gonna be so fun.

Oh. Yes, they are.

You know who we should invite?

- Who?

- To Christmas?


So she's not, like, out in the cold

with her cute little nose

pressed against the frosted glass,

like, "Please, sir,

may I have some porridge?"

Okay, so speaking as your new brother,

it seems pretty clear

that you love Heidi.

Okay, what?

- Ja.

- Ja.

Ja. Ja.

Is it that obvious?

Oh, very obvious. Yes.

You stare at her a lot.

Well, I'm just trying to

memorize every strand of her hair.

But whatever, it was her idea

for me to get married to Thea anyway,

so she obviously doesn't love me.

At least this way, I

get to stay in Berlin

and be around Heidi. Right?


I didn't hear what you guys were saying.

I was just trying to be supportive.

So we should get going.

I'm so glad that in 1998,

a witch k*lled that businessman,

then disappeared, so that you two

could look so beautiful today.

We should get going, right?

- Almost there.

- Okay.

Oh, it's locked!

What the hell?

Rathaus will be closing

at noon today in observance

of German Unity Day

so that our employees

may attend the festivities.


Germany lets their government

employees celebrate holidays?

How humane.

But still, this really screws us.

Scheisse. What do we do?

Your performance is in an hour.


Why must you smite me?

I did everything that you asked!

I came to Germany.

I took the bottom bunk.

I ate pickles so sour

that my b*lls are still

not as plump as they were.

I wore the stupid little glasses.

I went to the hospital. I wrote a song.

What more could you possibly

- we need Hilda.

- Who?


The nice but useless

woman that we met here.

If she's at the concert,

she can marry us.

See you later, freak out!

I got a wedding to save!

Quick, describe Hilda to us.

Okay. She's about my

height, brown curly hair,

'80s pink eyeshadow, and

And what?

Well, I was gonna describe her breasts,

but I'm stopping because I

think you're not supposed to.

I need a huge favor.

I wanna get married right

now. Can you help me?

In the name of unity?

I'm three lagers in and I love love,

so you know I'm game.

Ooh. Are you marrying

No. A much taller, much scarier one.


There she is. Thea!

Let's go.

I sing when I want to ♪

Okay, so it seems

that the other newcomer, Bumper Allen,

will not be performing today

Because he is in the country illegally.

Sad, but also really bad.

So that means that I

will perform another song!

Just please bear with me

as I wheel out 1,600 pounds

of human-sized cupcakes.

Okay. Hilda. Start the ceremony.

- Yeah. Yeah.

- Okay.

- Wedding.

- Yes, it is.


- What a strange word.

- Is it?

Not as strange as scuba but

Hilda, let's get to the point please.

- Do you, Bumper

- Yes, I do.

- Take Thea

- Yes.

To be your lawfully wedded wife

- Okay.

- To have and to hold

- Sure.

- Until death do you part?

Yes. Okay. Yes. Fine. Good.

- Great.

- And do you, Thea

This man is not allowed to perform.

He's with me.

Official Rathaus business.

Now step aside, or I'll report you

for working on a

holiday without a permit.

Thank you, Hilda. Whoo!


Enjoy this.

It's everything you've always wanted.


Thank you.

I should get going.

- Hmm.

- Okay.

Thea. Hilda.

I don't want to brag,

but I still fit into the same size

giant high-heel prop shoes

that I wore in high school.

Thank you, honey.


So now, Thea, do you take Bumper

to be your lawfully wedded husband,

to have and to hold

until death do you part?

- Yes. Yeah.

- Okay, good.

So now I pronounce you husband and wife.

You may now kiss the bride.

- Do we have to?

- No, absolutely not.

- Mm-mm.

- No.

Let's just

Hello, Berlin!

Wow, this is

this is such an honor.

So I'll just sing.

You know what? I do know what to say.

I thought the most important thing

in the world was being a star,

everyone else in every room he steps in

There's no such thing as just one star,

'cause every star is

part of a constellation.

So in the spirit of constellations,

I wanna give you a little treat.

There is somebody who

deserves to be up here

more than I do.

I mean, don't get me wrong.

I fought tooth and nail

to get on this stage,

but this person is a beautiful artist,

an amazing friend,

and I love her.

And I know you will, too,

because it's her turn to shine.

She is gonna sing instead of me.

It's what she's always wanted.

It seems like she needs

a little convincing to get up here,

so I'm gonna need your help, okay?

This is Heidi Miller, the

amazing singer-songwriter.

And this is DJ Das Boot,

the hottest music producer.

And of course, ladies and gentlemen,

my good friend and manager

I wouldn't be here without him

Pieter Kramer.

And he is very sorry for everything

he put Germany through.

It will never happen again.

Pieter the cheater

is now Pieter the kilometer,

because that is how big his apology is.

Oh, my God. My heart's racing.

What a show, man. What a show!

Can I have your autograph?

You realize I am not Flea

from the Red Hot Chili Peppers?

What's next for Bumper Allen?

Before coming to Germany,

I never thought that

this would be my life,

so I'm not even gonna try

to predict what's next.

I know what's next for me.


I want to make our partnership official.

I can produce all your clients.

We can call our company

Kramer and Kramer.

I would be honored to

work with you, DJ Das Boot.

Newcomer performances

can be a bit wobbly,

but that was so entertaining.

I couldn't have done

it without my manager,

my producer, my songwriter.

Where's Heidi?

- I don't know.

- Well done.

I have to go and find Heidi.

- Thank you.

- Okay.

Good luck.

Forgive me, Pieter.

I let you take the fall

for the sound machine,

and you were only trying to help me.


Seeing you up there throbbing

I mean, thriving

it really made me realize

what a mistake I made

putting you out of my life.


we were talking about

how much fun it would be

to get DSM back together.

Look inside your heart

I'm sorry, Gisela.

But I have a new team

now, and I moved on.

So wanted to touch base real quick

about everything that happened

and was said on stage,

particularly by me

about you.

Well, it was life-changing.

I have you to thank.

Sorry I disappeared back there.

I was just scouted by a

record label based in LA.

They love my song.

- What?

- Yeah.

Heidi, that's huge.


Wait, so are are you moving to LA?

'Cause that is very, very

far from here, he guessed.

I don't know.

I mean, it's everything

I've ever dreamed of.

But the question is,

will.i.am or won't.i.am?

Totally. I get that.

Believe me. I've been there.

But did you happen to "Fergie" t

about the other stuff I said?

'Cause I can repeat

it if you need me to.

I meant every word of it.


You better not be thinking

of running away from our sham marriage.

Oh, great. My wife's here.

Here's a list of rules

for a living in my house.

I'm very particular, and I've

got something called white mold.

It happens when ham sits

too long on your walls.

Okay. I have to move in with you?

Uh, well, yeah, of course.

You have to stay in Berlin

and sell the marriage, or else we both

are getting arrested for fraud.

Oh, and my girlfriend Ilse gets the bed.

You are on a very hard concrete pullout.

Heidi, what an epic performance.

I'm so happy for you.


I'm so happy for both of you.

There's my constellation.

Oh, that was an incredible day, huh?


I don't know what's gonna happen next,

but I am so grateful I came here.

sh*t. I forgot to call about my cat.
