"It's just that, I was there and I still can't quite believe it."
"That's because it wasn't us. That house... the wedding plans. I did it wrong."
"We did it wrong."
"Whatever, it wasn't right."
"So, how could we do it right?"
"For starters, it would have to be just us."
"No family or friends?"
"Well, that would be good too. But I meant just us, just what we really want. Not what we think we want or what we think the other person wants."
"How do we know if it is something we really want or just something we think we want?"
"Stop being a smart ass, you know exactly what I mean."
"So what would you really want?"
"You and me on a beach somewhere. Rings or no rings, I don't care. Lots of fucking and warm weather."
"That sounds like a vacation, not a wedding."
"I figure we'll pledge our undying love to each other somewhere in there."
"Throw in a handful of our friends and family and that sounds just about perfect to me."
"Yes, really. But after everyone else goes home, we spend a week together just fucking and relaxing."
"Did we just decide to get married?"
"I think we did."
"How would you like to spend Thanksgiving weekend in the Bahamas?"
"Sounds lovely, and then we should consider spending Christmas in the Alps."
"Hmmm, I didn't think you would be one to turn down a free trip to the beach, but if you’re not interested I can let Brian know."
"Wait, Brian wants to send us to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving?"
"Not send us, take us, and everyone else too. He and Justin are getting married. Just think how much Gus and JR will enjoy the beach."
"Well at least if they back out this time we'll be in the sun sipping tropical drinks?"
"They aren't going to back out this time."
"So let me get this straight, we're going to a wedding for your gay best friend, who you lost your virginity to, in the Bahamas for Thanksgiving."
"OK, sounds good to me. Only, are you sure this isn't some elaborate ploy to get you back. Will I have to fight him for you? Or defend your honor or something."
"He didn't even take my bra off when we had sex. I think you're safe."
"Are you kidding? He completely ignored your gorgeous tits?"
"A warm wet hole he could handle... but boobs were too much for him."
"Well then he must be gay."
"Wait until you see Brian, you might go gay yourself."
"Anything to get out of another holiday dinner at Debbie's house."
"I bet that's what Brian said too."
"Don't get me wrong, I love her, but ziti just doesn't say Thanksgiving to me."
"But the Bahamas do?"
"It's the Bahamas... who fucking cares if it's Thanksgiving!"
"Good, because it's hard to tell the boss you can't make it to his wedding. Besides, it's about time those two go through with it and I have to be there to see it so I can hold Brian's status as an old married man over his head for a long, long time."
"It's nice to be at an event that I don't have to plan for once."
"You're not bummed they didn't ask you to help?"
"Nah. I've had the pleasure of planning more than enough Kinney events, not to mention one Kinney/Taylor wedding already. Way too much stress, this is much better. Besides, this means I get to sit out on the beach and watch you toss a football around in a Speedo."
"Who says I'm wearing a Speedo."
"Hmm, seems like it's the guy who packed for you."
"You're going to pay for that."
"I'm counting on it."
"Will you stop crying already?"
"Oh give me a break, I just never thought I would see this day. I love Brian, but after they backed out last time I never thought he'd come around to the idea again. And now, they're married... really married."
"Please Mom, they were wearing bathing suits and it was sweet and all, but it wasn't exactly official."
"That isn't what matters. For them, it was perfect, just what it was supposed to be."
"What are you smiling about?"
"All my boys are happily married. I never thought I'd see the day."
"Does that mean you'll finally marry me?"
"Sorry honey, not yet. But things are changing, I can feel it. And one day soon we'll all have one big fucking ceremony as a fuck you to all those people that have held us back for so long."
"Good thing you're worth waiting for."
"Don't you forget it."
"Yeah, I'm alright. It's just weird, you know?"
"It's alright if it makes you sad."
"It does, just a little. But not for the reason you think. It seems like the past is really gone now, we're really grown ups. I think sometimes I've depended on Brian to hold onto our past, onto who we were."
"I understand. But you're still those people. You don't have less, you have more. Besides, who do you think Brian will call next time he gets wasted at Babylon. Married or not, some habits are hard to break."
