corporate brands we are projecting one of our most profitable years all right let's focus people please i start with jungle juicery now the chain grew to 50 stores last year which in anyone's book is quite the accomplishment i got reservations for us at aramaia tonight at 7 30. wilhelmina jones my office yikes full name not good yeah if this is about me being late sir i really want to apologize sit down icb recently purchased a small regional chain that corporate wants to rebrand and expand now they want to jump on this asap so we need to make sure all the restaurants are compliant with corporate standards the new logos signage and obviously the menu exactly we think it has the potential to go national and how many stores currently six in two states who's the compliance director you me you've been working your tail off in the midas pizza town and i think it's time you took the lead in your own project wow larry thank you now all the stores are transitioning smoothly to icb standards well that makes my job easier except for one they're not returning our calls or emails and it's not just any store it's the original flagship restaurant and the founding family still runs it okay so a little more complicated yeah and we need you to uncomplicate it copy that now this is a chance for you to show us what you've got miss jones you get it handled quickly you're looking at a promotion [Music] so get packed i need you up there and all over this brand first thing in the morning thank you thank you oh i almost forgot what is the brand uh hearts and the problem store some flyover town in tennessee sycamore something springs yeah that's it sycamore springs you're from sycamore springs but you're like cool thank you when's the last time you were there 15 years ago and your parents still live there no they moved to florida oh match but my crazy aunt tally still lives there married to her art and i sort of not the owner of the restaurant that's good right no he's the father of the guy he used to date in high school yikes and now it seems awkward because he dumped you no i broke up with him when i finally got out of that place how do you take it not well but i mean what was i supposed to do stay in sycamore springs for the rest of my life when my high school boyfriend's goals were fishing and drinking beer and made it very clear that i wanted more out of my life and just because he chose to stay in that sleepy cow town doesn't mean that i have to throw away the rest of my life sounds like you have some unresolved issues they're the ones with wishes maybe you could turn it into a little vacay is reid going with you reed he's supposed to take me up in an hour i have to get ready where is he taking you jeremiah wow nice you think he might put a ring on it you think he's going to um i have something for you surprise it's our new condo our condo we've been together for two years one month and five days i think it's time we take our relationship to the next level will you move in with me wow shocked right some covered modern interiors last month what do you say part of me wants to say yes and move in tomorrow and throw parties on that ridiculously huge balcony and just say yes but a bigger part of me always imagined i'd be married first i know i know it's old fashioned but it's how i was raised sweetie a lifelong partnership is about mindful transitioning from one place of life to the next moving in together is just the first step it's all part of my five-year plan five-year plan we date for two years lived together for about a year so we get used to each other's life rhythms both of us get promotions and then once we're financially secure we get married the year after that you can quit and raise our one baby one baby you know it's not responsible or globally sustainable to have more right sure i guess i just thought i might have a say in that i'm overwhelming you you can see it i do this i get so excited about something and then i just look breed it's a beautiful condo it's just i'm about to leave out of town for this job and i'm just not in the best place to make such a big decision let me think about it i guess that's fair

a while what my dad passed away three months ago oh i'm so sorry i had no idea so who's running hearts you're looking at him is no one reading the company emails or checking voice messages i'm more of an old school facts kind of guy but no i've received a phone call from you in i don't know 15 years what do you want now well as you know hearts was recently purchased by international corporate brands and i'm not sure if i agree with that decision but nothing i can do about it now right and i work for icp they sent me here to make sure you to talk you through some rebrandings well what do

sycamore springs oh you're gonna open a bank or a men's clothing store or something no and actually it's not willy anymore it's fina wow good to know yeah the corporation i work for just bought the hearts chain so i'm here you're here to see clay well not intentionally but what crazy timing what what do you mean i mean it's so weird that you just show up out of the blue now that clay and i are dating wow i didn't know that you two were well we will definitely have to get together while you're in town and you can tell me all about your glamorous big city life there you are i've been looking all over for you afternoon to lula paisley is that a new hat it is so interesting oh thank you it is a new hat you know we'd love to stay in chat but we gotta get going i love your dress never liked that um or that grass thank you now how come you didn't tell me that you came here to take over hearts this is a small town willie may i have spies everywhere and people here do not take kindly to change well things have changed including my name which again is mina not only yeah it just doesn't roll off the tongue it will with a little practice hello hey where is everyone closing early got a town council meeting here tonight then i'm off to coach the youth basketball team but you can't just do all this other stuff the restaurant needs your undivided attention you know i'm sick of you telling me what i can and can't do in my restaurant that's what i've been trying to tell you it's not your restaurant anymore the deal your dad made requires you to comply with any and all changes icb deems necessary what they own and operate hearts now and they could do whatever they want with the chain the look the menu everything i'm sorry but you don't have a choice clay and if you don't comply with the rebranding they will get rid of you hey man hey buddy your whiskey you won't make it a double i take it you heard willie's back oh yeah i heard paisley's not gonna be too happy about that what are you talking about who broke up last week well thanks for telling me you know clay it's not good to hold all those strong emotions stuck inside what are you doing i'm helping you process you know it's the whole empathetic bartender the deal was that you're supposed to be my partner not a therapist right which reminds me that as the new co-owner of this fine establishment you get to choose a drink named after yourself deakin this is serious she's gonna take away my restaurant willie works for the company that bought hearts she was sent here to change everything what are you talking about i'm just gonna turn into one of those generic diners like grayson's but hearts has been in your family for 50 years what am i gonna do well you and this clay teeny will figure something out hey how's it going you have no idea how happy i am to hear your voice you have no idea how desperately i miss you what are you doing tonight well first i'm schmoozing clients followed by crossfit at nine and then chloe and kenline are taking me to some after hours lounge in the back of a butcher shop i miss my life in the city no how's it going i texted you i know sorry it's been a rough day well how does it feel to be back i like high school reunion from hell oh it can't be that bad let's see no hotel room forced to stay with my artsy aunt ran into my high school nemesis and the owner of hearts died three months ago so pretty bad i'm sure you'll get it all smoothed out they don't call you the fixer for nothing people call me that they will after you nail this job i just want to finish and come home home to a condo with the steam room and the clawfoot tub hot bath does sound nice oh gotta go clients are coming keep thinking about it okay hi well i think we've waited for him long enough so why don't we just get started we think hearts has become synonymous with all things american hence our rebranding starts with the americana extreme menu americana extreme it's a twist on everyone's favorite comfort foods hamburgers hot dogs chicken barbecue ribs all of which our vendors are set up to provide what's the twist it's not actual food why don't we just watch the presentation and i'll take questions after okay thanks international corporate brands is a global brand management firm that oversees 50 businesses worldwide you always used to come here when you're avoiding something or someone yeah well now i'm just trying to get a catch of the day and as admirable as that is i don't think corporate would appreciate you undermining their commercial fishing suppliers i can't believe you discovered my plot to destroy the world economy i need you to come back to the restaurant and help motivate the employees i need you to be the manager so now you need my help we want you to stay and run the restaurant it's best for everyone okay we'll just keep things the way they are then i don't know how you thought this would play out or what your dad told you but this is what happens in a takeover changes are made and besides the other stores have already started rebranding charlotte you know what i might not be able to stop them from destroying the other five restaurants but i can assure you something about this one uh property dude i inherited the sycamore springs restaurant when my dad passed away the title to the restaurant is in my name what icb may own the name hearts but the restaurant is mine i'm not sure your father was authorized to do that yeah maybe maybe not but if icp wants to fight me on it i'll see them in court i've seen the numbers you're in the red no matter whose name is on the deed we'll make it up in the summer no you won't all this local organic produce is perishable using our vendors will cut your costs in half and with our marketing you'll get more tourists it'll boost business for everyone in sycamore springs since when did you care about sycamore springs you left and never looked back i know but that's me not you you're established in this community so let me get this straight you want to turn a small farm-to-table family business into a factory a factory that serves pre-packaged frozen food disguises old-fashioned home cooking it's americana extreme it's wrong it's profitable what's wrong with you i'm not the enemy here clay i'm here to help and if you don't do something you'll be out of business in months no matter what no this is state history you want to get rid of it's a small town ritual it's a ritual we take very seriously i guess that explains why you had to cheat and use a horse to win that year the rules state you can use any means necessary to get across the finish line yeah wait a minute are you still upset that i won that year don't be ridiculous just take them down we can't have personal items cluttering up the display area i can't have personal items what's wrong with the microwave even besides using it to warm up pre-cooked food one lazy burger whoa whoa what's a maisie burger it's a rare hamburger with swiss cheese and tomatoes avocado and fresh basil okay well there are so many things wrong with this picture first of all there's no ordering off menu it takes extra time to prepare second for corporate regulations all meat must be cooked medium well oh you gotta be kidding me you might as well suck all the flavor out of the beef i'm not cooking up hockey pucks that's what she always orders then politely tell her we're unable to accommodate her request and ask if she'd like the super slam cheeseburger with good old american cheese and pickles i told you you can't use your own produce we have corporate approved vendors your vendors are awful i've seen those frozen sticks you call fries both produce will save you significantly but besides you'll soon see most customers can't even tell the difference that's insane here try this tell me you can't notice a difference that's really not necessary how can you work for a company that manages restaurants and not care about the food i'm a brand manager not a food manager well my customers can't tell the difference take a bite you've obviously forgotten what fresh fruit tastes like then can we get back to work inside that's good but all apples taste the same oh come on tell executive willie to take the day off close your eyes and actually experience it close my eyes that's ridiculous well i can stay here all day oh fine it's sweet and crisp not just the taste how does it make you feel what does it remind you of i don't know being a kid walking home from school through the wild flowers down by the river we used to steal him from mr mclean's yard correction you used to steal them no i was just your lookout maisie's leaving maybe we should have offered the chili cheese wings instead i'll be there in a minute maisy amazingly clay you know i love you we all do and we do anything for you and and hearts thank you very much but your father would be rolling in this grave if he saw what you and that girl are doing to this place there's only so much change people are willing to take and and they'll just stop coming around all together okay look what just arrived my dignity new uniforms you gotta be kidding i even got name tags great now everyone in town will know my name funny now let's make sure everyone wears these to work tomorrow oh we'll be closed what no one told me that sweetheart festival starts tomorrow yeah we sponsor the opening day lucia will be up all night prepping but i haven't seen a menu i'm thinking warm pulled pork sandwiches with sweet potatoes in time what do you say boss oh yeah that sounds like perfect festival food absolutely not we still have to represent the new hearts brand even if we cater outside the restaurant hold on now if you're telling me we can't sponsor the festival then i'm sorry no in fact we'll up our presents we'll use the festival as a platform to promote the new corporate menu i think that's a really bad idea trust me this is what i do trick people into eating bad food get people to see an old brand in a new light [Music] would you like to try here you go enjoy you some good old-fashioned home cooking well i never thought i'd say this but thank goodness for all those preservatives whatever we don't use this year we can always use next year and the year after that if i remember correctly your sarcasm was one of the reasons we broke up in first place oh you didn't actually break up with me you just left can we just pretend to get along for publicity purposes fine great everything set up for the race yeah there's a new hearts menu item in every station let's just hope it'll kill someone before they reach the finish line r d says over 80 percent of our customers are satisfied with this menu you're satisfied with this hi guys wow this looks beautiful just one of the many new changes happening at hearts here try a chicken dipper with our new tangy barbecue sauce [Music] um really good my compliments to the chemist so are you all ready to defend your title in the great stuff your face race oh absolutely are you entering what me no oh she's just upset that i beat her in high school no i'm not upset and i'm not racing you they find people at tennessee and penny he's still not over me bless his heart so the rumors are true hi deacon and yes i really am back well it sure is great to see you again miss willy it's nina oh yeah well i like it it's very cheek really fits with your new aesthetic do you need something oh yeah yeah i needed to cover me over the kissing booth oh why they fire you already no penny they need me over at the pony rides wilfred's youngest kid is trying to milk one of them i'll be over there in a second btw loving the new costume see well you've been here almost a week and we still haven't had a chance to hang out i know just so much to do i understand take care take care of penny like us on facebook follow us on instagram yik yak and snapchat you could be a little friendly or penny you know it's one of the few people in town who actually seems to like you well i'm not here to win a popularity contest yeah that's pretty clear i'm not trying to be mean just don't have time to be anyone's bff the sooner i get the restaurant on track the sooner we can return to our lives i just need to stay focused and be the fixer a fixer yeah it's it's a work thing you wouldn't understand you're just you're stuck in this small town mentality you need to think bigger picture beyond sycamore springs okay miss fixer i'll make you a deal enter the race and if you win i'll sell i should be the property you're serious you want that land you gotta put your menu where your mouth is you're on oh yeah you're on ladies and gentlemen boys and girls as mayor of sycamore springs it is my great honor to welcome you to the 25th annual stuff your face race sponsored by hearts [Applause] now each contestant has to complete the course through the springs and get back here by any means necessary but you must stop at every station and finish eating each portion of food or be disqualified first one across the finish line is the winner is everybody ready excuse me hold on folks looks like it happened last minute entry here we'll all be it's willie jones everyone it's mina even wrote it down on the card okay then racers on your marks good luck get set [Music] oh nothing like farm fresh cheese [Music] oh [Music] [Music] i thought you said the food was supposed to be good at this thing oh i need to lie down okay good luck oh just admit it nobody likes the food and quitting the race is a result are you trying to get out of your bed no good i'll save the spot for the finish [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] hey i'm so sorry [Applause] yes [Music] so you think everyone stopped coming because of the race and because you're making service and edible food our customers have high standards half them are farmers what's the point of making all these changes if nobody comes don't worry there's always a slight transition when we rebrand slight transition this is a mass exodus we've tried it your way and it's obviously not working why don't we put some illusions ideas back on the menu unless icb wants to lose his entire customer base at his flagship restaurant maisie's back she wants her burger the real one sometimes the rules need to be broken this is not supposed to happen like this not all of them you can keep your posters and your tablecloths and uniforms but give mazie her burger back there's nothing americana about frozen beef patties okay we'll go with fresh ground beef [Music] i love it hey how's it going hi yeah everything's going great here are you sure because it doesn't sound that way what no we're we're still redecorating listen larry says upstairs is breathing down his neck they've already acquired new locations and they're moving up the national launch they want to see the numbers mina i just need a little more time to iron things out what things well for one thing the food i don't know who signed off on this menu but we should really talk to larry people don't go to these restaurants for good food they'll go for americana extreme a fun familiar menu i know i just thought don't overthink it just do what you were sent there to do your future at the company depends on this our future depends on it i know okay i should go i'll talk to you soon bye okay bye hey what do you say we get out of here can't i have to finish up this report says the girl that used to skip mr chisholm's class every friday to go to the lake well that girl has responsibilities now that girl needs to come with me now [Music] you know it's hard to believe he actually grew up here i've been saying that my whole life you ever think about moving back starting a family atlanta is my home now my whole life's there my job my friends my boyfriend he asked me to move in wow that's a big step still thinking about it and you and paisley we broke up she just hasn't accepted it yet seems like it worked out for you getting out of here you know if i didn't leave to pursue a career i would have regretted it my whole life [Music] i'm seeing sycamore springs now everything's the same well not everything you're different always helping everyone yeah maybe i just grew up [Music] i got one okay i got one all right just set them up yeah i got it i got it one we are [Music] oh man what happened i wasn't gonna let a city girl just reel him in without a fight now was he [Music] come on i guess someone will cheer you up [Music] [Music] is are

used to go crazy cranberries and waterfalls [Music] thank you i can't believe i forgot about our time capsule not me i walk by that spot every day before i come fishing can't believe i didn't dig it up soon why didn't he ask me to stay what do you mean back then after high school you just let me leave what was i supposed to do you'd already made up your mind i don't know i wanted you to fight for me tell me not to go felt like you didn't care that's crazy yeah well i'm a girl or complex tell me about it how could you think i didn't care you were everything to me [Music] i'm sorry my life's just too complicated right now i can't do this can you take me back hi hi so we should talk about this well what about how we have customers again and giving maizie your burger back really did the trick you think all these people are back because of macy have you seen your twitter feed what if people start requesting items from the old menu listen you know try this that's fantastic as per the menu this is hearts new spaghetti americana but it's really homemade linguine i used our heirloom tomatoes to make the bolognese fresh romano a pinch of basil here it's the super veggie explosion salad from the menu but all organic from the garden a lot better than a big bag of brown lettuce huh technically these items are listed on the new hearts menu i i don't know about this and why did you install another commercial water fixture yeah i wanted to talk to you about that what is that i just wanted to see if it works it's a pump a pump for what water i'm channeling the pure sycamore springs water on the property into the restaurant yes oh no no no you want to know why everything tastes so good it's the minerals in the water we use it to boil the pasta in the soups the bread lucian makes you have to admit it's pretty impressive oh it's more than impressive but you have to take it down wait this is because of what happened at the lake no it's because of food safety regulations so this has nothing to do with you kissing me last night icb would fire me if they found out i approve this and for the record you kiss me for the record you seem pretty into it really oh for crying out loud how many times do i have to tell you people it's mina there's someone here to see you mean reed hi what are you doing here everything okay no i mean yes i've been thinking a lot about us in fact i can't seem to stop thinking about us which is why i drove all the way up here wait this really isn't a good time mina you are everything to me and if that means i have to adjust the five-year plan then i'll adjust a successful relationship just like a successful business has to be fluid i don't want to lose you afraid please mina [Music] will you marry me i can't believe that you just ran off i know i feel awful just panicked i didn't know what else to do he sounded bold and romantic he was it's just there's so much happening right now and i am and this wouldn't have anything to do with clay no i'm just i'm not good with surprises well you sure have gotten yourself in a pickle a nice good-looking man isn't gonna wait around forever i know i know i have to give read an answer soon honey i was talking about clay [Music] i had the dragon to see the volunteers i know i tried taking her to a brave [Music] stream hi hi well look who's back can you give us a second yeah wait you uh you have to tell me the secret to your coffee i wish i could i'm so sorry i just ran off it was really sweet of you to propose but i just don't want to make such a big decision when i'm so stressed out and distracted so how long until you're less distracted i don't know as soon as i wrap this up i hope maybe i'll just stay till you're done you really don't need to stay here for me not a problem i already got a room at the end but how did they had a last minute cancellation don't worry about me okay all i need is a wall street journal and a decent caramel macchiato or you could soak in the small town maybe go fishing fishing yeah for fish [Laughter] that's hilarious direct from leanne's farm it's the new chicken and baby back ribs turf and turf combo i tweet my mom's barbie sauce recipe you're right i need more honey reed this is illusion chef do cuisine chef the cuisine really you have to try this no thanks he's making his own sauce this clearly isn't icb approved are we 100 compliant no but it's either that or lose the local clientele you want to know the secret to that coffee left the water the water clay came up with a way to pump it in from the spring i was gonna shut it down you know what is happening here the free-range chickens off menu recipes this is all against corporate policy don't worry i've got this handle you're up here for one week and this apple pie country life seems to be turning you into another person thanks for changing the menu back it's so much better than the food from the race i hear you man thank you i just want to be clear i'm only letting lucian serve his recipes to get the local customers back so we can hit our revenue targets plus you think they're pretty great i don't know what i think anymore we still talking about the food yes we are but i hope it's not too awkward with reid here oh it's awkward but he seems like a nice guy and i'm sure he's gonna give you the life you've always wanted i hope he said yes and apologize for embarrassing me from the entire time well not that it's any of your business but i haven't given him an answer yet [Music] since you're all set perfect we'll see you next weekend how's everything with your stay i know you had a rough start with that whole proposal situation yes um other than that it's it's fine thank you you don't uh happen to know the owner of hearts do you clay sure we go way back and meena yes everybody knows everybody she never told you any stories about growing up here how they were homecoming king and queen so they were friendly friendly they were in love you don't think it's a little odd that you didn't tell me the owner is your ex-boyfriend no because it's not an issue it is to me please don't get worked up over this it was such a long time ago i'm not getting worked up i just think it's interesting and what is with that ridiculous name everyone keeps calling you oh there they are willie that exactly wow okay he's just everywhere i thought you were working on the lighting install all done and the new signage put it all up who's your fancy close friend sorry deacon this is reed oh right you're the guy yeah sorry about that brother great thank you deacon hey the least we could do is take our visitor on a tour around town that's really not necessary you know what that sounds great i mean it hasn't told me anything about this place well follow us you're gonna love this due to all the contained gases sycamore springs mineral water is actually effervescent aka sparkling and finally on this side of the lake the blue house right there is george clooney's second cousin summer cottage thank you deacon for that random tour filled with fun facts you know i found it very interesting who knew that s'mores were invented right here in sycamore springs storytellers just one of my many skills what's a beer that's me going chief yeah once we get the boats fixed i got a whole business plan on how we're going to reboot the hot springs tours how many

tully lewis don't get your socks on a knot i still have a pulse lou is the old devil so nice to see you two kids together again and clay so glad you come to your senses bringing back the old hearts menu it's actually a new menu with the same fresh ingredients that we've always used a perfect blend of the old well whatever you call it it's just nice to have family back again family willie this town is just one big family sure people go to hearts to eat but most of us go there to see folks we know say hi and catch up you have been away for too long you okay she's right i forgot about all this but not just because i've been away i wanted to why because if i forgot i wouldn't have to think about what i left behind the old times it's a good old time having fun read so sorry to interrupt no we're just yeah you can drop the whole naive cowboy thing okay read stop excuse me it's desperate it's obvious what you're doing what is it that i'm doing exactly trying to recreate some sad high school fantasy with your homecoming queen who dumped you 15 years ago it's really quite pathetic i mean it stop you know what's pathetic proposing to your girlfriend when she's obviously not into you okay think what you want farm boy but you were done holding an entire corporation hostage it's over my friend what for starters your father's contract with icb clearly prohibits transferring ownership of the property to anyone [Music] clay i'm sorry i should have told you about on top of that the local bank told me about your loan of one hundred thousand dollars taken out against your business apparently to invest in deacons far such action and this is my favorite part will result in mortgage and entire property being turned over to icb willie how does he know all this because you're not the only one with the workplace romance cowboy you two work together uh-huh wait i can't believe you did this behind my back larry was worried you weren't handling things so he sent you here to spy on me to help you and i'm glad he did the whole deal might have fallen apart you could have been fired and you proposing to me was that larry's idea too of course not i want us to make a life together and this is how you show me i'm just trying to help now the deal's done and icd will be thrilled you'll get your promotion and get out of this town and back to our lives i thought that's what you wanted nothing please don't tell me you've actually fallen for his country boy act go home read it's over mina wait and my name's not mina it's willy [Music] has anyone seen clay grace it's not what you think you have some nerve little lady first you take away his restaurant and then his heart i don't know how you can sleep at night [Music] [Music] what are you doing here i wanted to talk to you i know what you're thinking but it's not what it looks like well it looks like you've been lying to me this whole time working with reed to shut me down yes we work together but that was not the plan well i don't think there's any doubt in your mind whether or not you should marry him you two are perfect for each other looks like you and paisley are too what does that mean i saw you kissing her that's not what now what what it looks like she kissed me i promise you it's over between us you know what it doesn't matter all these years i've been trying to prove to myself that even in this small town i could make something of my life you have you know what the worst part is is i actually thought that you might fall back in love with me hey you're right nothing changes i'm still a small town guy and you're still the same girl that'll run over anyone to get what she wants at least this time i'm the one walking away [Music] [Music] so [Music] uh [Music] so [Music] uh [Music] so hi honey clay was gonna propose to me what i found a letter and a ring i always thought he didn't want to be with me he just wanted to stay here and do nothing with his whole life oh what'd it say and said he didn't want me to leave hey lost without me but he knew we were young but that his heart knew we were supposed to be together he said he wanted me to meet him on the dock the next day he had something important he wanted to ask me the day you left i missed everything [Music] okay that new motor is looking real good you know it daryl was practically giving it away gotta fix those vinyl seats too hey listen man i'm really sorry about this whole thing oh deacon don't no if you hadn't given me that loan and i do it again you're my best friend that's the way i roll well i really appreciate it hey will you clock the wheel for me i want to see if she turns it's perfect so what are you gonna do now nothing not about the restaurant about willie she went back to atlanta to marry that guy reed she may be going back to atlanta but she's not going back to that jerk they broke up who told you that lewis saw the whole thing in the festival last night he told me you sure no his eyesight's going but what does it matter you love her stop feeling sorry for yourself and go fight for her go get that girl back okay thanks bud and finally a big thank you to phil our executive vice president who's joined us today now let me turn things over to our brand manager for the national launch of hearts americana restaurants mina jones congratulations thank you larry i am i think we're making a mistake in fact i know we're making a huge mistake um i think that uh what nina is trying to say is that we shouldn't be launching hearts as just another cookie-cutter chain but as a completely new organic farm-to-table concept providing quality food at small town prices ms jones as much as i appreciate your input here this is not the place or time to be making significant changes to the brand then when is fresh casual is the new fast food icb needs to be a company that listens to what the american people want larry um i just want to say that i have nothing to do with this i wasn't consulted at all that's true so why don't you just sit down and zip it read okay what if we actually put the food before the fanfare what if we went back to a simpler time when people ate at restaurants where the food is fresh not frozen and grown locally not trucked across country in big bags and cans where locals like lucian are as creative as the top chefs in atlanta where clay the owner has come up with a way to use the mineral rich spring water something no one else is doing to cook in the kitchen and irrigate the garden he's a forward thinker who's been coming up with environmentally sustainable concepts for years now what if we went back to a time where people actually talked while they ate or pictures of little league teams were on the wall instead of relentless advertising and 60-inch tvs the old hearts is the new idea you're missing out on we don't need a rebrand heart sir we should be using hearts to rebrand icb [Music] hey it's clay you know what to do hi clay it's willie i'm sure you don't ever talk to me again so i'll make this short somehow i managed to convince icb to change the entire concept back to what you and lucio were doing before i showed up and made a mess of everything i understand if it doesn't change what you think of me and honestly i don't even know what to think of me anymore i'm sorry i just hello hi i was just leaving you a message what were you saying you should probably just listen to it yourself why don't you tell me in person what turn around what are you doing here i guess i just wanted to see what it was you left me for you're right this city it's beautiful it's like i know it doesn't make up for all the pain i caused you but there's good news you're gonna get your business back i love you i've loved you ever since i can remember go or stay it doesn't matter i just want to be with you tired of wondering what my life would look like if i'd done this 15 years ago willie jones [Music] will you marry me [Music] yes [Music] uh [Music] we're back to officially be in a mom-and-pop restaurant well it's gonna take at least nine months to make it official [Music] happy valentine's day mr hart happy valentine's day mrs hart you just saw her in
