'Merry Happy Whatever' Season 1 Episode 7: The Quinns, Matt, Todd, Joy face their fears, step out of comfort zone in heartwarming episode
In our lives, there comes a time when we have to take that fall knowing there's no safety net and hoping there would be one at the end of it. With emotions clouding judgments and the festive fever catching up, the Quinn family is all over the place and they need saving from their thoughts.
Emmy (Bridgit Mendler) is struggling with her emotions. She is in a constant dilemma about the job at hand and the offer and is also furious at her father for not approving of her and Matt's relationship. Matt (Brent Morin) is living his remaining days in Philly with Sean (Hayes MacArthur) and Joy (Elizabeth Ho), and Todd (Adam Rose) and Patsy (Siobhan Murphy). Don (Dennis Quaid) is trying to mend his relationship with Emmy, but failing at it miserably. Todd and Patsy have a heated argument over what color their baby's nursery should be. Sean and Jo discuss a business idea. He springs the idea of starting a food truck business, through which he'll make and sell eggies (a quick snack made from bread, eggs, and cheese) but is also unsure as it would mean him sitting ducks for the first few months (at least until the food truck takes off, becomes really popular). Kayla (Ashley Tisdale) and Alan (Tyler Ritter) try to make their marriage work, but the sparks are missing.
From the looks of it, they are all stuck in their problems and what's making it even difficult is their approach towards it. They think their way is the only way out of their troubles. But, it all begins to fall into place when they drop that attitude and take a bold step ahead.
Matt, who fears public-singing and had canceled all of his solo shows earlier, sings at a pub in front of a live audience. Don and Nancy (Garcelle Beauvais) go on a date only to realize he is yet to move on from his late wife, Margaret. Todd and Patsy mix two colors of their choice to paint the nursery. They even have a sit-down chat with each other to understand religion. Kayla and Alan talk it out, decide on going separate ways. Emmy lets go of her ego, anger, sadness, and makes a quick call to Matt to express her interest in making things work between them.
It's finally all coming together for everyone in this extremely heartwarming episode. But are the joys here to stay? Wait and watch!
