Erica: Thank you. Twice in one day.

Jackson: Hey.

Erica: Well, I guess this must be one of those kismet moments that you were talking about.

Brooke: Erica.

Singer: Nothing's worth disguising the truth

Jake: 'Cause I love to travel, you know. Uh, she's great. She's wonderful. Can we keep her?

Tad: Hey, man, it's me again. When you get this message, I'd appreciate it if you check in. Better yet, why don't you just come home.

Krystal: Where can he be?

Tad: I don't know. But I've been thinking maybe you're right. Maybe we should call Jesse, get the police involved.

Angie: I already mentioned it to Jesse -- off the record. But he was pretty clear, if he puts out a search, there's no way that Damon's probation officer's not going to find out.

Tad: Well, I don't know what choice I have. I mean, the kid is clearly missing. He's my responsibility in more ways than one. You know how they say the apple never falls far from the tree? Ha! God only knows what kind of trouble that kid can get into.

Colby: Psst. Hey. Ok, if my dad sees you, you won't make it home in one piece. But -- what are you --

Damon: I'm only going if I can drive.

J.R.: Have you seen my father?

Annie: He's sleeping in.

J.R.: It's kind of late even for sleeping in.

Annie: Well, he's had so much trouble sleeping lately, I didn't have the heart to wake him.

J.R.: Are you all right?

Marissa: Don't touch me.

J.R.: Why? What's wrong?

Marissa: I'm leaving you.

Brooke: Twice in one day.

Erica: Yes, that's what I just said.

Brooke: Oh.

Jackson: So glad you were free for lunch.

Brooke: Well, thank you for inviting me.

Singer: Isn't this quiet? I just want to be alone.

Brooke: Are you joining us for lunch?

Jackson: Hey, that's a great idea. Why don't you?

Erica: No, thank you so much, but I'm actually gonna be eating at my desk.

Jackson: Oh.

Erica: I think it's very important that my staff see that I'm working just as hard as they are to make Fusion a success. My goodness, "Tempo" must really be bouncing back if you can find time to have lunch.

Brooke: Oh, well, I thought I would just carbo load for the layout meeting this afternoon.

Erica: Well, Jack and I were just talking about coincidences, and then here you are.

Jackson: Well, that's not really much of a coincidence since I invited her.

Erica: No, what I meant was I was planning to call you, and -- and I just was hoping that I could speak to you. Is there any chance that you could stop up at my office after you finish lunch?

Brooke: Oh, well, I'll make the time.

Erica: Oh, well, thank you. Ok, then. Enjoy.

Jackson: Thank you.

Brooke: Well, was that more than a friendly smile?

Jackson: Uh, well, you know, Erica and I have quite a history.

Brooke: Hmm, and it's not over yet?

Jackson: Who the hell knows? Maybe we'll go at this again, maybe not. What's keeping you under the Chandler roof?

Brooke: Oh, please, don't you start on me. I am not there to break up Adam's marriage.

Marissa: I woke up with the sniffles, and now I have a fever. I'm terrified that I might infect you if I haven't already.

J.R.: Not even a sneeze, so I'm sure I'm fine.

Marissa: Yeah, but I don't want to take any chances. I have an appointment with Angie. I'll see what she says.

J.R.: Ok. I'll call Dr. Khan.

Marissa: Ok.

J.R.: You call me when you're done?

Marissa: I will.

J.R.: All right.

Annie: Well, I hope it's nothing serious.

J.R.: Well, you do care.

Amanda: So, Ryan says that you're great with Emma, and Krystal swears that you're Jenny and Kathy's favorite sitter. Have you worked very much with babies?

Jane: Yes. I'm actually getting certified to teach the CABS course at the community college. The childcare and babysitting safety course.

Amanda: Oh. Wow.

Jake: That's great. Wow.

Amanda: Well, you're perfect.

Jake: Yeah, she's perfect.

Amanda: I mean -- but we just started the whole interviewing process, so -- well --

Jake: Yeah, and we know that you're great 'cause you're great and everybody knows that you're great, but this is the first time that Amanda's gonna go off to work, and we don't know with someone else, you know, taking care of him, and we're not -- it's not us, and it would be hard, you know, when he wakes up and he cries, you know.

Jane: I've nannied for a lot of working moms. I get how hard it is at first.

Jake: Well, great. Um, you know, let me take the two of you girls to lunch. We'll have a little test drive. Want to -- the baby -- you want to do that? Yeah.

Amanda: Ok, great.

Jane: That sounds great.

Jake: Come on, then.

Amanda: All right.

Jake: Is that all right?

Krystal: All right, as far as we know, Damon isn't in any trouble, but Angie's right. If we get Jesse involved in this, he could end up with his probation revoked, and that could mean jail time.

Tad: What if he's hurt? What if he got into a fight or got drunk, and he's sleeping it off in a gutter somewhere? It's karma, Angela. Payback for every stupid thing I ever did. I mean, I wake up one morning, I got an 18-year-old kid who's got a child, loves women, partying, and is really, really good at getting into trouble.

[Door opens]

Damon: Hey.

Tad: No. No, "Hey" isn't going to cut it. Where the hell have you been?

Damon: Out.

Tad: Yeah, I pretty much pieced that together. Where have you been? You couldn't pick up a phone? You couldn't answer one of 10 messages and let us know you were ok?

Damon: It's no big deal.

Tad: It is a big deal. You were out all night.

Damon: And you're not my daddy, so back off.

Angie: Why don't you both calm down.

Damon: [Scoffs] Man, I am 18.

Tad: You're 18, and you're on court-appointed probation.

Damon: So what, you're gonna lock me in the basement till it's over?

Tad: Don't tempt me. I'm thinking about it.

Angie: Listen, Damon, now, you do need to be more responsible. And show some respect. Tad took on a lot when he agreed to supervise you.

Damon: I appreciate that, but I need some freedom.

Tad: Why? So you can steal some more pills, go get drunk again?

Damon: You gonna breathalyze me as soon as I walk in the door?

Tad: I just want to know that I can trust you.

Angie: Well, you know what, let's start there. Maybe you can both work on the trust, ok? Tad won't monitor your every move, and you will let him know what you're doing.

Damon: I guess I can work with that.

Krystal: Great. Great. That's not so bad now, is it?

Tad: No, I guess not. I got angry because I was scared, ok? I'm doing my best to help you. Hell, I even -- I even lined up a tutor for you.

Damon: I don't need a tutor.

Tad: Of course, you do. What kind of job do you think you're gonna get without a GED?

Colby: Whoa, wait. You dropped out of school?

Damon: I was gonna be a rock star, all right?

Tad: Well, I don't think the gig's gonna happen anytime soon, and until it does, you need to prove to people you have some brains in your head, you can finish what you started.

Colby: Well, I could tutor you. Well, I have a pretty light load at PVU, and, um, it -- it could be fun.

Damon: Fun?

Colby: Ok, maybe not exactly fun, but, uh, well, I'm up for it if you are.

Damon: I'll think about it.

Angie: Well, while you're thinking about it, I'll drive you to the hospital. Your shift started 15 minutes ago.

Tad: Talk later?

Damon: Yeah. Thanks.

Tad: That goes doubly for me, Colby. Thank you for bringing him home.

Colby: Yeah, sure.

Krystal: So, Colby -- where was he all night?

Colby: Well, like Damon said, he was out, but you saw him. He's fine.

Tad: This time.

Opal: Why is it that this always tastes better with chopsticks?

Erica: Oh.

Opal: So -- you gonna clam up or are you gonna tell me why you summoned me here? What's going on?

Erica: Nothing.

Opal: Mmm. Except you and Jack.

Erica: Why would you say that?

Opal: I don't need tea leaves or tarot cards to see what's going on. I mean, the two of you get together, and things get hotter than spit on a griddle.

Erica: Huh. That's exactly what Jack said.

Opal: Mmm.

Erica: Minus the spit on the griddle thing.

Opal: So there has been some exploration of the subject at hand?

Erica: No, not really.

Opal: Mmm?

Erica: Ok, so maybe Jack said something. Maybe there are some sparks between us. Ok, maybe Jack kissed me.

Opal: Oh, I knew it. I knew it!

Erica: Oh. But this can't go on. There's just no way that this can work out.

Opal: Why? Why do you say that?

Erica: Because, Opal, because of the way things always end up between us. Things have never worked before, so why should they work now?

Opal: Because Jack has never stopped loving you, that's why, and if you were really honest with yourself -- how do you feel about him?

Erica: Look, Opal, I know you're a big fan of Jack's, but you can't work whatever this is between Jack and me into Jackson and Erica the sequel.

Opal: Well, part one was pretty darn exciting.

Erica: And it exploded in our faces.

Opal: Time heals, honey.

Erica: Well, time hasn't changed the fact that Greenlee seems to be the biggest obstacle to any chance Jack and I have of getting back together, working things out. I mean, if anything, Greenlee is even a bigger problem than she ever was before, especially with this tug-of-war thing that's going on at Fusion.

Opal: Well, you know, you can come up with beaucoup ideas about why you and Jack can't be together, you won't be together, or you shouldn't be together, but the facts are still the facts. There is a fire between the two of you, and it isn't going anywhere no matter how hard you try to put it out, so why don't you just stop skittering around like a hog on ice and land somewhere.

Erica: Opal, I've been called a lot of things in my life, but I don't think anybody ever called me a hog on ice of any kind. Opal, I just think that this whatever it is between Jack and me is just way too complicated to be summed up in one of your quaint country expressions.

Opal: Well, then I'll put it this way. If you push him away without at least giving this a fresh try, then you're just crazier than a sack of weasels.

Jackson: Brooke, I wasn't insinuating in any way that you were going after Adam.

Brooke: I'm sorry. Really, I'm sorry. I overreacted, and it's just that everybody seems to be thinking about me this way lately.

Jackson: You mean Erica.

Brooke: Well, you know, in her not-so-subtle way, but Annie came, you know, said straight out to me that I was trying to seduce Adam, and even J.R. had something to say to me.

Jackson: Well, you'd only be doing Adam a favor. That's my unsolicited observation.

Brooke: Well, I don't know why it is, but after five minutes with anyone in this town, people jump to the worst possible conclusions.

Jackson: Gee, I wonder. You know, you could stop the gossip by moving out of the mansion.

Brooke: I could, but I feel like I should be there. I mean, even though Adam is happy that J.R. and his family have moved back home, but I think it's so hectic and there's so much going on, I feel like I need to be there to keep an even keel on things.

Jackson: Well, if anybody can do it, Brookings, it would be you. Say, you're not available to referee Greenlee and Erica, are you?

Brooke: Ha ha! No. You're on your own.

Amanda: He normally goes down for a nap right about now, so --

Jane: Well, if you want, I can take him to the park. He can fall asleep in his stroller. If you want.

Jake: Yeah, that's a great -- don't you think? That's a great idea.

Amanda: Yeah, sure.

Jake: Right?

Jane: Here's my cell. Just call me when you're ready to meet up.

Jake: Ok, that's fantastic.

Amanda: Ok --

Jane: Come here, guy.

Jake: It's ok, hon.

Amanda: Uh -- all right.

Jane: She can only take the baby to the park if we actually give her the baby, so --

Amanda: Ok. Um, well, there's extra diapers in the bag. Bottle. You know, some sun block just in case.

Jake: Bag.

Jane: Ok.

Amanda: Snacks. There's snacks in there.

Jane: Got it. Well, don't worry. Trevor and I are going to have fun, aren't we, Trevor? Ha ha.

Jake: Thank you.

Jane: Thank you.

Jake: Bye, little man.

Amanda: Whew.

Jake: What? You ok? They're just going to the park.

Amanda: I don't think I can do this.

Annie: Of course, I care whether Marissa's sick or not, because you are not strong enough to fight off whatever she has. Why are you making a big deal about it?

J.R.: I appreciate the concern, that's all.

Annie: Yeah, ok.

J.R.: Annie, I meant what I said earlier about trying to let go of this crud between us, try to keep this family on track.

Annie: I have always wanted to be part of this family, and I have always tried to keep this family on track. The only people spreading the hate around here have been you and Colby, not me, so you'll have to excuse me if I don't buy this whole "I want to be your friend" act.

J.R.: All right, you know what? We've been jerks, ok? I admit it, we never gave you a chance, but, Annie, the fact is, you really saved my father's life.

Annie: What are you doing?

J.R.: I finally realize now from the moment that Uncle Stuart died, while I was upside-down in a bottle, you were there for my father. You put yourself on the line more than once to keep him safe, and after everything that Colby and I have thrown at you, you stood by his side.

Annie: Yeah. Where's the part where you call me a gold-digger and say that I'm only using your father for his money?

J.R.: My father would be dead from grief and guilt if it hadn't have been for you. You've done more than just bring him back. You've given him a reason to live. In a way, I guess, you saved both of our lives. You've given A.J. a dad and a grandfather.

Annie: How stupid do you think I am? For months you have been trying to convince your father to leave me. You have been calling me trash behind my back and now you're saying you want to be my friend? Well, you can go to hell, because I know exactly how much you hate me.

J.R.: I don't hate you, Annie! I'm jealous.

Kid: You can't make me! I won't do it!

Doctor: You need to get into bed.

Kid: I won't!

Doctor: You want to do this at juvy? Your call.

Kid: You're a tool!

Doctor: And you need to get off that ankle.

Kid: Fine.

Angie: What's going on?

Doctor: Hard case. Kid shoplifted some candy, screwed up his ankle when he tried to run.

Angie: Parents?

Doctor: Runaway. Waiting for his foster mom to show.

Angie: Oh, I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't. Uh, would you please go in there and get the place cleaned up? Don't want him burning it down.

Kid: Who are you?

Damon: Janitor.

Kid: That sucks.

Damon: Not as much as getting busted for shoplifting.

Kid: Jerk.

Damon: Hey, man, want to see something cool?

Jake: You know, we're eventually gonna have to get used to other people taking care of Trevor.

Amanda: I know. I mean, I thought I was ready. I said I was ready. I mean, millions of women do this every day. They leave their kids with someone while they go to work. Why is this so hard?

Jake: Well, it's separation anxiety. Babe, it's perfectly understandable. You've actually been very good with leaving him for short little periods of time. You just have to, you know, get used to this. And here's the thing. With your new job, you're gonna be very busy, so who knows when you're even gonna have time for lunch. So we should celebrate. This should be a celebration of your new supermodel status, right? And Hayward's behind bars, and our life is good. Our life is great.

Amanda: You're right.

Jake: I love it when you say that.

Amanda: I love you.

Jake: Is that right? Excellent. So can we just take a deep breath and relax and enjoy this meal?

Amanda: Absolutely. I'm just gonna run to the restroom.

Jake: All right.

Amanda: Jane.

Jane: Amanda.

Amanda: Uh, just checking in.

Jane: Trevor is a total doll.

Amanda: Really? No -- no problems?

Jane: He stopped fussing as soon as we left the restaurant. He's been adorable.

Amanda: Good. Great.

[Jake calls Jane's phone]

Jane, over voicemail: This is Jane. Leave a message after the beep.

Erica: Jack is a wonderful man.

Opal: Oh.

Erica: Any woman would be lucky to have him in her life.

Opal: Mm-hmm. So why are you practically running in the other direction?

Erica: I'm not running. Look, it's just that -- what if my soul mate is out there waiting for me? If I get pulled back into a relationship with Jack, then I could really miss the opportunity to be with the man I'm meant to be with.

Opal: Well, or maybe you are running away from the hunk you're meant to be with because you're afraid.

Erica: I'm not afraid. I just -- I would like to be open to whatever or whoever is out there for me.

Opal: Well, while you're so busy looking under every bush and behind every door for Mr. Right who may or may not exist, all 6' 3" of him could be standing right smack dab in front of you.

Erica: Mm. Opal --

Opal: Jackson did not move back to Pine Valley for the weather. He is here for you, honey, so don't you owe it to yourself to at least explore the possibility before you lose this fabulous man to somebody else?

Brooke: Thank you.

Jackson: Here you go. So, I was looking for a change in my life. I was looking for a new perspective, and I thought that Paris would be the answer.

Brooke: And?

Jackson: And I was wrong. Brooke, I was bored.

Brooke: I think you're the only person who would go to the City of Light and be bored.

Jackson: Yeah, I know. And I mean, don't get me wrong. It was beautiful, and I got a chance to see, you know, Bianca and Reese and the girls once in a while. That was nice. But there was just something missing.

Brooke: Erica?

Jackson: I could travel the world a hundred times over, never meet anyone like her.

Brooke: Well, that's completely true.

Jackson: Yeah. You know, you said you were going to say a prayer for me? I hope you meant it because when it comes to Erica, I need all the help I can get. But I'm being selfish. Seems to me you could probably use a prayer or two being stuck in the Chandler hornets' nest.

Brooke: Well, it wouldn't hurt.

Jackson: Ha ha. Hey, is it really so bad you feel you have to stay?

Brooke: It's, um, Adam. It's his heart.

Jackson: Oh. It's that bad?

Brooke: You can't say anything to a soul, all right?

Jackson: I won't say a word to anybody.

Brooke: I'm just, um, you know, I'm worried. I know that he has J.R. and Colby and Scott, you know, and Annie --

Jackson: Huh.

Brooke: But J.R. needs to focus on his health, and you know, Colby's in and out, you know, with her friends and school, and Annie --

Jackson: Annie is Annie.

Brooke: I'm afraid if I move out, something could happen to Adam, and no one would even know.

Krystal: Need anything while I'm out? I got to run some errands, and I have an appointment with Jackson.

Tad: Why are you gonna hook up with Jack?

Krystal: Oh, he's gonna help me get out of the agreement that I had with the contractor who was gonna build the candy store.

Tad: What, you're gonna get somebody else? I thought you liked him.

Krystal: I'm just gonna actually scrap the whole idea. I'm gonna put the lot up for sale.

Tad: What? You loved that idea. You were working on it for ages.

Krystal: No, I know, I loved it. The right side of my brain was going sugar crazy, but the left side realized that, uh, it's just too much of a gamble to start up a business in this economy.

Tad: Oh, come on. Tell the truth. Does it have something to do with what happened with your architect? Dick?

Krystal: Rob.

Tad: Rob.

Krystal: No. Well, maybe a little.

Tad: Yeah? I'm sorry you didn't come to me first. Between the pair of us, I know we could have gotten that sucker on its feet.

Krystal: [Sighs] Listen, I know you've got a lot going on, you know, with Damon and Liza --

Tad: Yeah, well, less so with Liza. We, uh, decided to kind of cool it a little bit. Ahem.

Krystal: Oh. I'm, uh, I'm sorry.

Tad: No. It's all right. I -- like you said, I got enough to deal with right now.

Marissa: I know you're so busy. I hope you don't mind my asking for you.

Angie: No. We've been short-staffed, so I have to jump in when I can. But you know, you did the right thing getting in here so quickly.

Marissa: Yeah, well, fever, chills, sniffles. Do you think it's the flu?

Angie: It looks that way, but this will tell us for sure.

Marissa: I'll never forgive myself if J.R. gets sick because of me.

Angie: Marissa, you know J.R.'s getting stronger every day, but if this is H1N1, then you have to find a place to stay until you're not contagious. But at least everyone else at your place has been vaccinated.

Marissa: J.R. needs me so much. I just -- I really hope I can get home to him soon.

Annie: Are you drinking again?

[J.R. scoffs]

Annie: Because there is no way you could ever expect me to believe that you are jealous of me.

J.R.: You gave my father what I couldn't. He was at his lowest point. He was desperate for help. I was busy blaming him for everything that was wrong in my life. But you were there. You helped him. You did what I should have done.

Annie: You're sure you're not drunk?

J.R.: Annie, I almost died! Ok, it changes a person's perspective. My mistakes that I've made and all the people that I've caused pain.

Annie: So you just -- you saw the light, and you came back a whole changed man?

J.R.: Yeah, and I owe you that, too.

Colby: Ahem. I'm not interrupting anything, am I?

J.R.: No. I was just telling Annie that we all need to make an effort to get along.

Colby: Hmm. Like that'll happen.

[Phone rings]

Annie: I have to take this.

[Footsteps fade]

Colby: You know, if it wasn't me, and I didn't know what you were doing, I would have believed everything you said.

J.R.: Good.

Colby: I know you want to save Dad, but, uh, how far are you gonna take this?

J.R.: As far as I have to go.

Colby: Right. All the way to the bedroom?

J.R.: I don't have to seduce Annie to get rid of her.

Colby: Ok, but close enough.

J.R.: Colby, leave it alone, all right?

Annie: Whew. You're never gonna believe who just called.

Colby: Ok, then.

Annie: Congressman Wilton's office. He read the "Tempo" article. He loved it. And they want us to testify in front of a congressional subcommittee.

J.R.: Testify about what?

Annie: I guess they want to get more funding to expand the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry, and they like our story, and they want us to share it.

J.R.: Ha ha! Well, that's great news!

Annie: Yeah. I can't do it.

Colby: Oh, Annie, you have to. J.R. can't travel yet.

Annie: Well, no, I -- no, I can't do that. All those -- all those congressmen and women and everyone's eyes on me and the cameras and the microphones? No. No way.

J.R.: Well, maybe by the time this all happens Dr. Khan will give me the ok to travel.

Annie: And what if you can't?

J.R.: This is a great cause, Annie. You'll be giving back. I mean, how can you say no?

Amanda: You all right?

Jake: Yeah. Huh. You know what? I just have to, I think, hit the men's room.

Jake: Jane.

Jane: Jake. Uh, what's up?

Jake: I was just calling to check in and see if, you know -- I called before and there was no answer. I thought maybe there was a problem. If there's a problem --

Jane: Uh, no problem.

Jake: So Trevor's ok?

Jane: Trevor's great. Trevor's perfect. You have zero reasons to worry.

Amanda: Jane, where are you? It's Amanda. You're not picking up. Call me back. [Sighs] Hey. Loving this salad. How's your burger?

Jake: I love this burger. Honey, do you just want to go? Shall we go?

Amanda: Yes.

Jake: Is it all right with you?

Amanda: Yes.

[Cell phone rings]

Jake: Hello. Jake here. Jane? Yeah. Sitting right here. Ok. She wants me to put her on speaker. Go ahead.

Jane: Can you both hear me?

Amanda: Yeah.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Jane: Good. 'Cause I'm only gonna say this once. You need to chill. Trevor's an angel, and I'm great at what I do. So stop worrying and eat your lunch.

[Phone beeps]

Jake: Did you call her?

Amanda: You called her?

Jake: Well, I -- I -- this is great, you know? Because now we've just pissed off the best baby-sitter in town.

Amanda: Can we just go see Trevor?

Jake: Yes! Yes!

Brooke: Knock, knock.

Erica: Oh, Brooke, come in. I'm just finishing up.

Brooke: Okey-dokey. Oh. This is -- this is really great.

Erica: Well, thank you. That's exactly why I asked you to come up here.

Brooke: Oh, I know. A makeover.

Erica: Oh, ha! No. Although that wouldn't be such a terrible idea. No. Actually, I would like to ask you a favor, Brooke. I'd like "Tempo" to do an article on Amanda Dillon, the face of Fusion's new Glamour line.

Brooke: Well, you know, "Tempo" is primarily hard news content, but I think I could find a place for an article on Amanda and your new line.

Erica: Well, thank you.

Brooke: Mm-hmm. So I will have my people call your people, and we'll get it set up.

Erica: Brooke.

Brooke: Hmm?

Erica: How was lunch?

Brooke: It was great to see Jack, you know? It was so lovely, so much to catch up on.

Erica: Yes, I'm so glad that he moved back to Pine Valley. Certainly wasn't the same without him.

Brooke: No. I agree. So now that he's back, what exactly are your feelings for him?

Erica: So much to do. Jack and I are friends. We're just very good friends. Best way to enjoy a divorce, don't you think?

Brooke: If that's all it is.

Erica: We're just close -- like you and Adam.

Brooke: You know, Jack is such a great guy. I would hate to see his heart mowed down again.

Erica: I'm not going to hurt him.

Brooke: Well, sometimes you just can't help yourself. If you care about him at all, do him a favor --

Erica: And what, leave him alone? Huh. Brooke, it's very dear of you to be so concerned, and I'm sure if either one of us ever needs your advice, we'll ask.

Brooke: Ok.


Krystal: Knock, knock.

Jackson: Come on in. Pardon the mess. Why don't you have a s -- well, never mind. Uh, hey, I talked to your contractor. Do you mind if I keep unpacking while we chat?

Krystal: No, no, no. Not at all, not at all.

Jackson: He says that if you'll cover his prep costs, you can get most of your deposit back.

Krystal: Ah. Fantastic. You are great. Thank you for taking care of that so quickly.

Jackson: I'm not exactly burdened by clients.

Krystal: Yet.

Jackson: Anyway, when I call this guy back, the deal's gonna be done, so if you're having any second thoughts, dear, you better tell me to hold off.

Krystal: Yeah, I know. You know, I really was sort of looking forward to sinking my teeth into a career that I could be passionate about, but I know that letting go of this whole candy store idea is the right thing to do.

Jackson: You're separating the civil law books from the criminal law books?

Krystal: Yeah, sorry about that.

Jackson: No, that's ok. And the case books from the procedurals?

Krystal: Uh-huh.

Jackson: Well, that tells my finely tuned, deductive mind that you've done this before?

Krystal: Yes, I did work for an attorney for a while.

Jackson: Really?

Krystal: Mm-hmm.

Jackson: Doing what?

Krystal: Paralegal.

Jackson: Paralegal? How do you get along with computers?

J.R.: All you have to do is talk about your experience, when you donated bone marrow to me, just like you did to Brooke.

Annie: That was one person and one camera. This is millions. No, I'll -- I'll get tongue-tied, I'll say the wrong thing, I'll make a complete fool out of myself.

J.R.: And you're gonna be helping out a lot of people. Annie, I know how passionate you are when you want something.

Annie: You mean obsessed.

J.R.: Passionate. If you focus on the good that this can do, all the nerves will go away. You'll be an inspiration.

[Cell phone rings]

J.R.: Marissa, how are you?

Marissa: It's H1N1. It's mild, but bad enough that I can't come home, and you need to take those antiviral meds that Angie sent over. I'm so sorry.

J.R.: No. It's all right.

Marissa: I'm gonna be staying at Tad and Krystal's. They've all gotten their shots, too. I just -- God, I feel so terrible leaving you like this.

J.R.: No. You just concentrate on getting better. I promise, I'll be well taken care of.

Amanda: Thanks for watching him.

Jane: You're welcome, but I really don't think this is gonna work out.

Jake: W-we'll change, ok?

Jane: Ha. I can't afford it. Six calls and six voicemails in an hour? It's not really part of my calling plan.

Jake: Please give us another chance. We'll -- we'll -- please.

Jane: You guys are great. I mean, both of you. Are you sure you're ready for the two-career thing?

Jake: Are we sure? Are we sure we're ready? What?

Krystal: Wow. I certainly didn't expect to walk out of here with a job.

Jackson: Wow indeed. I didn't expect the answer to my problem to come walking in.

Krystal: Ha ha. I would get you some references from my old bosses --

Jackson: No need.

Krystal: But it's been such a long time.

Jackson: Sure.

Krystal: And you know what? To tell you the truth, I think they were more interested in my legs than my brains. Go figure.

Jackson: Well, you won't have that problem here.

Krystal: Well, good.

Jackson: I promise you that.

Krystal: I just want to make sure.


[Erica walks in]

Damon: All right, now red and black. Red, black. Is that what you think? Now just think about it. Just feel it out. All right, good, now flip 'em.

Kid: Cool. How'd you do that?

Damon: Never touched the deck.

Kid: But how?

Damon: All right, here's the deal, Charles. I'll tell you the secret, but you got to swear that you won't tell anybody except another magician.

Charles: I swear.

Damon: All right, here's how you start.

Tad: Bolo, Thaddeus. I need a favor. Don't jump so fast. You don't know what it is. I'm not sure it's legal. I need somebody to break into the Ohio mainframe, come up with everything they can get their hands on on an 18-year-old boy. He goes by the name Damon, Damon Miller.

J.R.: All right, it's understandable that you have nerves, but it'll be fine, I promise you. Brooke, you're just in time.

Brooke: Oh, for what?

J.R.: Thanks to your article, Annie and I have been invited to testify in front of a congressional subcommittee. It's part of an appeal to raise funds and awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry.

Brooke: That is great. What does Adam think?

Annie: Oh, he hasn't come down yet.

Brooke: Well, it's past noon.

Annie: He was tired, and I let him sleep.

Brooke: You didn't check on him?

Annie: He was sleeping. W -- excuse me. Where do you think you're going?

Brooke: I'm going to check on Adam.

Annie: Like hell you are. I'll check on Adam.

Brooke: When it suits you and when it fits into your schedule?

Annie: I know what my husband needs. I am his wife.

Brooke: Well, then start acting like it!
