Ada: Nancy was always bugging me the very next day after thanksgiving. "Mom, when are we going to get the tree?

Mom, can we get the tree today?" So, we did. This is the longest I've ever been without it.

Vince: Well, you got 10 days.

Ada: You like what I did last night and this morning?

Vince: Yeah, it looks nice. Yeah.

Ada: Listen -- let's get the tree. Let's get all the ornaments out of the basement, ok? Where should we put it?

Vince: Put what?

Ada: The titanic. The Christmas tree -- what else?

Vince: Put it wherever you want. Doesn't matter to me.

Ada: I noticed.

Vince: Huh. I'm being a drag, huh?

Ada: You're always a drag.

[Vince chuckles]

Vince: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Ada: Yeah, yeah, yeah. But then, who needs a lot of Christmas cheer at half past 8:00 in the morning?

Vince: Well, you know, I'm usually crazy about getting ready for Christmas, but this is not one of my better years.

Ada: I know. It's been a rough one.

Vince: Yeah. Divorce, M.J., Ben -- he never calls.

Ada: And Kathleen.

Vince: This is going to be the first Christmas without her.

Mary: I know what you mean.

Vince: Mary, what are you doing here?

Mary: I told Cass that I would talk to you.

Vince: Cass? What does he want?

Mary: He thinks that there's a possibility that Kathleen may still be alive.

[Knock on door]

Chad: Hey, Scott.

Scott: Hey, Chad.

Chad: Have you seen Dawn? I just wanted to -- what the hell is going on here?

Scott: Be quiet, be quiet.

Chad: Hey, don't tell me to be quiet!

Scott: It's not what you think!

Mac: When Liz comes in, tell her I have some business at home. Yeah. And ask her to postpone my morning appointments.

[Knock on door]

Mac: Hold it a minute. Yes?

Amanda: Mom said you wanted to see me.

Mac: Oh, yes, I do. Come on in. I think I'll be in by noon. Thanks very much, Julie Ann. Well, how'd you sleep?

Amanda: Great, like a log. Terrific.

Mac: Oh? All that pacing I heard coming from your room all through the night -- that just my imagination?

Amanda: Are you staying home today?

Mac: No, no. I'm going in, maybe a little late. Maybe a lot late. It's all according to how my business goes here.

Amanda: Well, I'll let you go get back to your business.

Mac: No, no. No need for that. Actually, my business here is with you, Amanda.

Amanda: With me? What kind of business could you have with me?

Mac: Well, let's see -- you are Amanda Cory, aren't you?

Amanda: Yeah, that's me, all right.

Mac: Listen, sweetheart, I know you had a terribly difficult time with Sam.

Amanda: I'm ok.

Mac: But, darling, I think you ought to remember who you are. I think you ought to remember you're not only lovely to look at, I think you ought to remember you're bright, you're very bright, and you're talented and you have enormous potential.

Amanda: What is all this leading up to?

Mac: Oh, come on. Let me extol your virtues. Makes me feel good anyway just to enumerate them.

Amanda: All right. You're on.

Mac: And you have my stubbornness.

Amanda: That's a virtue?

Mac: Well, it's stood me in good stead from time to time. And you have this crazy sense of reality that's altogether your own.

Amanda: What about mom? Didn't I get anything from her?

Mac: Oh, yes -- you got her creativity. You know, life can be difficult for the creative.

Amanda: Yeah, I can believe that.

Mac: I expect you had a taste of that with Sam Fowler.

Amanda: My crazy sense of reality working overtime.

Mac: Amanda? I believe in you. I believe you can do anything you set your mind to.

Amanda: I wish I could believe that.

Mac: Well, that's why I want to talk to you, about your options for the future.

Amanda: Is this going to be another pitch for college?

Mac: Well, I still think that's one option that you might reconsider.

Amanda: No, dad.

Mac: I thought maybe after Sam -- you know, people do change their minds.

Amanda: Not the people I know.

Mac: All right. Option number two -- now, this one's for the future, but it doesn't concern your career.

Amanda: Well, I'd prefer to talk about a little farther down the line. The immediate future doesn't look all that fantastic.

Mac: Some time off might help. Some traveling maybe?

Amanda: No. Dad, I'm not going to run away.

Mac: That's not your style, is it?

Amanda: I was right about something, though -- publishing. I do love it.

Mac: You do, still?

Amanda: The longer I'm at "Brava," the more right it seems. So if we are going to talk about the future, Cory Publishing is it.

Mac: Well, well, well. If that's true, have I got an offer for you.

Amanda: One I can't refuse?

Mac: I hope you can't refuse it. Come work with me.

Amanda: On your personal staff?

Mac: As my assistant this time, and I'm not taking on Mandy Ashton. I'm taking on Amanda Cory -- no pretense.

Amanda: Assistant to you?

Mac: That way, you can learn every facet of my business and then when the time comes, when you're ready, if you want it, you'll be able to run your own magazine.

Amanda: My own magazine.

Mac: Now, it's not going to be easy. You were right about one thing.

Amanda: I can't believe this.

Mac: Because you're Amanda Cory, more is demanded of you.

Amanda: I never asked for any favors.

Mac: No, you didn't. So there you are. If you want it, you have it.

Amanda: But why are you doing this? I mean, what do you get out of this?

Mac: Your total commitment.

Amanda: Total?

Mac: Total. Do we have a deal?

Chad: Look, I don't believe this.

Dawn: Scott --

Scott: Now, see what you did?

Chad: You want to tell me why she's in your bed?

Scott: She's resting.

Chad: Dawn, maybe you'd like to explain.

Dawn: Would you please calm down, both of you?

Scott: Look, look -- hey. How are you feeling?

Dawn: Not great.

Chad: What's the matter?

Dawn: I -- I'm just -- oh.

Scott: What?

Dawn: I just sat up too fast, that's all.

Chad: Are you feeling sick?

Scott: She wasn't feeling well. She had a fever last night.

Chad: Well, how high?

Dawn: Well, 101. It's no big deal.

Chad: What do you mean, no big deal?

Scott: I think it's gone down a little bit.

Chad: Well, why didn't you give me a call?

Dawn: Why -- so you could worry, too?

Chad: Dawn, I was worried anyway. I didn't know where you were.

Dawn: Well, I was here. Scott was sweet enough to have me stay at his apartment.

Scott: I slept on the chair.

Chad: Right. Look, I got to call a doctor, ok?

Scott: I'm taking her.

Dawn: No.

Scott: Yes, I -- I am taking you.

Dawn: Don't you have a meeting tomorrow?

Scott: I will reschedule it.

Dawn: Scott --

Scott: I want to take you.

Dawn: Look, nobody is taking me anywhere, ok? All I have is the stupid, plain old boring flu, all right?

Chad: Well, you should have it checked out at least.

Dawn: No, I refuse!

Scott: Dawn!

Dawn: Look, neither one of you -- no arguments, ok? I am not going to a doctor for some silly bug. He's not going to tell me just to drink liquids and have plenty of sleep, all right?

Chad: Maybe he can give you a prescription for some medicine --

Dawn: There are no prescriptions for the flu.

[Chad sighs]

Dawn: Now, will you kindly go to your meeting, please, so they don't disbar you or something?

Scott: Ok, I'm going to call you in an hour, all right?

Dawn: Fine. Call me every hour.

Scott: And if you're not feeling better by this afternoon, you are definitely going to go see a doctor.

Dawn: Yes, sir.

Scott: I'll be home early. Ok?

Dawn: Hmm. Having the flu does have its advantages.

Scott: Ok.

Dawn: Bye.

[Scott sighs]

Chad: Look, I'll be right back. Well, now, you just lie down, ok?

Dawn: Ok.

Chad: Scott?

Scott: Yeah?

Chad: Look, about what I said, I'm real sorry. I just got the wrong impression.

Scott: Just forget it.

Chad: I just can't help trying to take care of her. I'm just her big brother and I just don't know when to quit.

Scott: I understand.

Chad: That's why I never told her about our mother.

Scott: Chad, I am not going to tell her. I never want to hurt her.

Chad: Thanks.

Scott: Don't thank me. I feel protective toward her, too. It's just not like being a big brother, ok?

Chad: What do you mean by that?

Scott: What I'm saying is I love her, Chad. I really love her.

Mary: Cass came over last night, right after you left, Ada.

Ada: And he said that Kathleen might be alive?

Mary: Well, not exactly.

Vince: What does Cass know that we don't?

Mary: I -- I don't think he knows anything for sure.

Vince: Now, look, you saw the report from the crash site -- we all saw it.

Mary: Yes. But --

Vince: Now, wasn't that enough for you?

Mary: It certainly was at the time, yes, but you see --

Vince: Now, look, hold it. Does Cass have a new report?

Mary: I -- I don't think he does exactly, no.

Ada: I think I'll go and check on the --

Vince: Mary, we saw what was left of the things that Kathleen had with her on that plane.

Mary: I know.

Vince: There was part of a suitcase.

Mary: But a suitcase doesn't prove that she was definitely on the plane.

Vince: Oh, so that's it. Cass is saying that she wasn't on the plane?

Mary: That it's possible.

Vince: Mary, she was listed on the manifest. She checked in, she boarded the plane.

Mary: Cass was listed on the manifest. He wasn't on the plane. Neither was Rex -- he was on the ground waiting for it.

Vince: Who knows where Rex was? He's dead!

Mary: Cass knows. Rex was just pretending to try and pull Kathleen from the plane.

Vince: So you're saying she was on the plane?

Mary: I'm -- I'm saying that the whole crash thing was a setup by Rex.

Vince: Why would he do that?

Mary: To try and get us and everyone else to accept him as Cass.

Vince: It's too much.

Mary: Well, wouldn't it be worth it, just to take another look at what happened to Kathleen?

Vince: It is too much to hope for.

Cass: No, it isn't, Vince.

Vince: Cass.

Cass: Looking good, Vince.

Vince: Yeah, well, I don't feel very good. Do you really believe all the stuff Mary's been telling me?

Cass: I don't know. But until somebody can prove beyond all doubt that Kathleen is gone, I'm going to keep on hoping. Are you with me?

Mac: You're awfully quiet.

Amanda: I was just thinking about when I was little. You used to take me down to the office with you?

Mac: And you would staple everything in sight. You were known, you know, as the mad stapler.

Amanda: I'd sit in your chair --

Mac: Staple gun at the ready, looking for loose papers anywhere.

Amanda: Even then, I seemed so comfortable there, so at home. Even then, it seemed right.

Mac: I hope what you're saying is you're going to accept my offer.

Amanda: Well, it would be a challenge.

Mac: It would be a trial by fire, Amanda.

Amanda: And a lot of responsibility.

Mac: Responsibility comes with that turf.

Amanda: I don't think I was ready for it before.

Mac: But now?

Amanda: Amanda Cory, ready for duty, sir.

Mac: Hey! I love to hear those words -- and especially the "sir."

Amanda: Oh, I can't pass it up. It's the opportunity of a lifetime.

Mac: Minced meat, it ain't.

Amanda: Assistant to Mackenzie Cory.

Mac: You can still call me "sir" if you want, you know.

Amanda: Hmm. Can I call you "daddy"?

Mac: Can I put you deep in the mail room licking stamps?

Amanda: "Mr. Daddy"?

Mac: Well, that's a little more original.

[Mac chuckles]

Amanda: I love you, sir.

Mac: That's mutual, but listen, there is a downside to this, you know. I mean, Sam Fowler is still in my employ.

Amanda: Yeah, I know.

Mac: And how long that'll go on remains to be seen. Now, I imagine the completion of the cover will decide it.

Amanda: I'm a big girl, daddy. I can handle seeing Sam or anybody.

Mac: Good. Anyway, I think it's much better right now that you don't have a steady boyfriend.

Amanda: Yeah. Yeah, I guess so.

Mac: I mean, you really won't have the time for it.

Amanda: Perfect timing.

Mac: I'll tell the staff today.

Amanda: About what?

Mac: About your being my assistant.

Amanda: Oh, let me do that. Please?

Mac: Anything you want, sweetheart.

Amanda: I think I should explain the truth about why Mandy Ashton was around anyway.

Mac: Well, I don't think it's going to be a major consequence to most people, you know.

Amanda: I'll whip it up in a memo for all the Cory staff.

Mac: Well, let me read what you whip up before you distribute it.

Amanda: Sure. I'll get started on it right away.

Mac: I expect it on my desk this afternoon.

Amanda: You'll have it, sir.

Mac: Well, my business here was certainly concluded in record time. I might even beat Liz to the office.

Amanda: I might even beat Liz into the office.

Mac: Come on, we're not at the office yet. Oh, you don't know how I look forward to this.

Amanda: Really?

Mac: Really. My darling daughter, you are the future of Cory Publishing and I just couldn't be prouder.

Mitch: Rise and shine.

Sam: Oh. Who is it? Who's there?

Mitch: I thought you'd left town.

Sam: Mitch.

Mitch: But I'm glad to find out that you didn't. I tried to call you last night.

Sam: Oh, what a headache.

Mitch: Well, that's what you get when you sleep sitting up.

Sam: What are you doing here?

Mitch: Looking for you.

Sam: Look, if this is about Amanda, I really --

Mitch: No, no, no. This is business. I need you to look at some photos.

Sam: Which photos?

Mitch: Enlargements of the plane crash.

Sam: That's the ones Allingham stole, right?

Mitch: Yeah. I found a couple of rolls of film I didn't even know I had.

Sam: Yeah, I heard about him biting the dust last night.

Mitch: I'll pass.

Sam: Felicia must be pretty upset. Winthrop's her best friend, right?

Mitch: Let's not get into that, ok?

Sam: What's the matter?

Mitch: Nothing. I'd just rather not talk about it. What are you doing here?

Sam: Oh. I'm trying to get that cover finished as soon as possible.

Mitch: Losing yourself in work?

Sam: Great -- armchair psychology for breakfast.

Mitch: Will you look at that? It's from one of the new rolls.

Sam: When was this taken?

Mitch: Just as I got there, about a few seconds before the plane exploded. I didn't even know I had that.

Sam: Wait a minute.

Mitch: What is it?

Sam: Here. It's right here.

Mitch: Oh, my, my, my.

Sam: Now, what does that look like to you?

Mitch: It looks like a figure of a person in the window.

Vince: It's really good to see you -- I mean, it's real good.

Cass: It's good to see you, too, Vince.

Vince: I can't believe there were two of you, you know.

Cass: I can't believe you bought that guy's act.

Vince: Look, I know what you're thinking, but just because you're alive doesn't mean Kathleen is.

Cass: It could, though. Don't you see? It could mean just that.

Vince: Look, I would give anything --

Cass: This is a little more than wishful thinking, Vince.

Vince: It's not enough. It is not enough!

Mary: Please, listen to him.

Vince: Mary, I said goodbye to her once. I can't do it again.

Mary: I understand how you feel. But I saw your face when I told you. Please hear him out.

Vince: Well, I never said I wouldn't hear him out.

Cass: Ok. This is what could've happened. Rex kept me alive for revenge. Maybe he kept Kathleen alive, too.

Vince: But you just said he wanted revenge.

Cass: Yeah, but if he killed her, I might get over that eventually.

Vince: Eventually.

Cass: But if he kept her alive and I didn't know where she was or what he was doing to her, he could torture me for the rest of my life. Don't you see? This -- the only proof that we have on Kathleen's death is purely circumstantial, Vince.

Adam: Before you go on, I have to tell you I just got off the phone with the authorities in Alaska.

Mary: What did they say?

Adam: They have an eyewitness, someone who saw Kathleen get on that plane.

Cass: Kathleen or somebody who looked like Kathleen?

Adam: Cass, they also have a clean set of her prints from the inside of the door of the plane.

Mary: But the plane burned.

Adam: The door was intact. It was thrown clear on impact.

Cass: Yeah, but the body hasn't been identified beyond all reasonable doubt to be Kathleen, so it's still purely circumstantial.

Adam: There's more, Cass. Interpol got back to me this morning. They did a check of all of Rex Allingham's old haunts looking for signs of Kathleen.

Mary: And?

Vince: And there weren't any.

Adam: There was no Kathleen and nobody who fit her description.

Cass: Oh, come on! That doesn't mean anything! Maybe he took her somewhere else.

Adam: Cass --

Cass: Maybe he didn't take her to one of his old haunts!

Adam: Cass! There was no sign of her. None.

[Phone rings]

Mary: I'll get it, I'll get it. Hello. Mary's Place.

Mitch: Yeah, this is Mitch Blake.

Mary: Oh, hi, Mitch. What can I do for you?

Mitch: I was just calling Adam's office. They said he was on his way over there.

Mary: Yeah, he's right here. Hold on. It's for you. It's Mitch.

Adam: Thanks, Mary. Yeah, Mitch, what's up?

Mitch: I just went back and redeveloped that film of the plane crash.

Adam: And, what, you found something?

Mitch: I think you and Cass ought to get over here now.

Ada: Does Cass really think that Kathleen is still alive?

Cheryl: What?

Vince: Oh, no.

Cheryl: Kathleen's alive.

Vince: This is what I was afraid of.

Cheryl: Isn't -- isn't that what Ada said?

Mary: It's a possibility, Cass thinks.

Vince: Yeah, well, Cass is just dreaming.

Cheryl: Why? What did he say?

Vince: No matter what he said, it doesn't mean it necessarily is.

Cheryl: Mom, what did he say?

Vince: Now, look, look. Your sister is gone, Cheryl, rest her soul. There's nothing we can do to bring her back.

Cheryl: But, pops, if --

Vince: And there has to be an end to it.

Mary: Vince?

Cheryl: Pops? Well, isn't anybody going to talk to me?

Ada: You've heard all there is to tell.

Cheryl: But, Ada --

Ada: We have to wait. We all have to wait -- that's all.

Chad: Cheryl, can I get a cup of tea to go, please?

Cheryl: Sure. Since when do you drink tea? I thought you were a coffee drinker, Chad.

Chad: No, that's for Dawn. She's up in Scott's room. Can you put a little lemon with that, too, please?

Cheryl: She's in Scott's room?

Chad: Yeah, I think she's got --

Cheryl: Oh, forget it. It's none of my business.

Chad: No, I think she's got the flu.

Cheryl: Oh.

Chad: Look, I know you're not too happy about those two being together, but I was real happy that somebody was with her last night.

Cheryl: Look, Chad, I'm fine about them, ok?

Chad: I saw the way you looked at them last night.

Cheryl: Why does everyone have to assume that I'm jealous of her?

Chad: Fine, ok? I'm just trying to face the truth -- that Scott and Dawn are together.

Cheryl: Fine!

Chad: Fine. I had my doubts about Scott, I'll tell you that.

Cheryl: Look, Scott is a great guy, but he's part of my past. I wish people would start remembering that.

Chad: Is something wrong? Something else?

Cheryl: I'm just really tired of people either not talking to me or making stupid assumptions.

Chad: I'm sorry.

Cheryl: No, I'm sorry. Uh -- I didn't mean to yell at you.

Chad: You didn't yell at me, and if you did, I deserved it. I acted like a jerk. I --

Cheryl: No, you didn't, Chad.

Chad: But you're right. I've been making too many assumptions about too many people -- wrong assumptions. I just wish I could tell you I was going to change.

Cheryl: Hey, Chad, wait a minute. I -- I'll go with you. I'd like to help if I can.

Chad: Sure. Come on.

Cheryl: All right.

Dawn: No aspirin in the medicine cabinet? Whew -- where else would they be? Where else? Aspirin, aspirin.

Dawn: Where would he put them? Aspirin.

Dawn: Aspirin.

Dawn: "Mrs. Rollo"?

Chad: Hey, what are you doing out of bed?

Mary: Ok, I realize you have to deal with this in your way.

Vince: There is nothing to deal with.

Mary: I'm sorry. I just felt that I had to tell you.

Vince: Ok. You told me.

Mary: Now you wish I'd go.

Vince: No, no. But you don't have to stay here just for my sake.

Mary: Actually, I had another reason for coming over.

Vince: Oh. What is it?

Mary: Um -- my building's going co-op.

Vince: Huh?

Mary: And I don't -- I don't have the money that they want for my place, so here I am apartment- hunting again.

Vince: Well, if something comes up, I'll tell you about it.

Mary: I've already heard of something.

Vince: Oh. In the neighborhood?

Mary: Upstairs.

Vince: In the studio?

Mary: I came to look at it.

Vince: You want to live above a greasy spoon?

Mary: This happens to be a very classy joint. So, you got any problems with my living upstairs?

Vince: Problems? Oh -- no, no, no. Hey --

[Vince laughs]

Vince: You want to live in one room above a restaurant, that's -- hey, that's fine with me.

Mary: Well, I certainly know the neighborhood and why not?

Vince: Hey, I was just wondering.

Mary: Well, if you don't have a problem then, is it all right if I go look at it?

Vince: Sure. I guess you won't have any problem with the rent.

Mary: What is it?

Vince: What does it matter? You own the joint.

Adam: Mitch, what do you got?

Mitch: It's a photograph of the plane right before it exploded.

Adam: What?

Cass: I don't see anything.

Mitch: Right there -- in the window?

Adam: I can't make anything out.

Cass: It's just a shadow.

Mitch: Look, there's a blowup. I would've had this sooner. I mean, I didn't even know I had this film. I just found it.

Adam: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Look. You see that?

Cass: It looks like the back of somebody's head.

Adam: No, it's a hand. It looks like it's trying to break the glass --

Cass: She's fighting to get away from the flames.

Mitch: I know you can't see a face.

Adam: She is a redhead, Cass.

Mitch: Adam, if you will look closely on the finger, there's a ring.

Adam: What do you think?

Cass: I don't want to look at it.

Adam: Come on, Cass, you have to.

Cass: No.

Adam: We've got to know. Does this look like Kathleen's ring?

Cass: I mean, I -- I -- I don't know. It looks -- all I can tell is that it's a ring, you know? I need another blowup, something closer.

Adam: Can you do that?

Mitch: I've got it, right there.

Adam: You ok? Take your time, be sure. Does the ring on that finger look like Kathleen's ring?

Adam: Cass?

Cass: She never thought I'd buy her a diamond like that.

Adam: So it is Kathleen's ring?

Cass: I wanted to prove to Vince that I could -- that I could spring for a big rock like that, you know, so I won the money in a card game.

Adam: I'm sorry, Cass.

Cass: No, no, no, no, it doesn't prove a thing.

Adam: Look, I know this is disturbing to you --

Cass: Adam, just think, would you, please? Rex stole this ring, took it off of Kathleen's hand, and planted it on another woman, leading us to believe that --

Adam: I can understand your thinking -- I can understand it.

Cass: He wanted us to believe that she died, don't you understand?

Adam: We have an eyewitness.

Cass: Yes, and he could have been paid off or he could have been mistaken.

Adam: We checked the guy out. He was clean as a whistle. He ID'd a photograph of Kathleen.

Cass: People look like people! Rex looked like me, right?

Adam: Mitch, can I have a moment alone with Cass?

Mitch: Take your time.

Cass: I know what you're going to say.

Adam: Cass, it adds up.

Cass: There is still doubt.

Adam: Not enough.

Cass: Look, I know you think I'm grabbing at straws, and you're right. But if I can find that one straw --

Adam: If I thought there was a chance -- one chance -- I would reopen this case in a flash.

Cass: And if I was 100% sure that this was -- oh.

Adam: It was.

Cass: Oh, no.

Adam: Cass, it's the only conclusion that you can come to.

Cass: Maybe. Maybe. You see, the ring -- she wouldn't have --

Adam: She wouldn't have what?

Cass: Hmm. She vowed never to take it off. She -- she said that she was afraid that I'd hawk it.

Adam: Well, she didn't break her vow to you.

Cass: Well, what am I going to do now?

Adam: You go on.

Cass: What -- without her?

Adam: Cass, she's a part of you. She's inside. Nothing and nobody could ever take that away from you. Nobody.

Cass: I have to tell Vince and Mary.

Adam: You want me to go with you?

Cass: No, I want to do it alone.

Adam: What are you going to say?

Cass: I'll tell them the truth. Kathleen's never coming back.

Dawn: I was just getting into bed.

Chad: Well, what are you doing out of bed?

Dawn: I was looking for aspirins. I don't know where Scott keeps them.

Cheryl: Oh, I'd get you some if you want. What kind do you like?

Dawn: Extra strength anything. I got a big headache.

Cheryl: Oh, Dawn, I'm sorry.

Dawn: It's ok. It's just the flu.

Cheryl: Well, I'll be right back.

Chad: Ok.

Dawn: Thanks, Cheryl.

Chad: Here. Take a sip of this tea. How are you feeling?

Dawn: Oh, much better. Much better.

Chad: Yeah? Look, I'm real sorry about how I've been acting lately.

Dawn: About what?

Chad: About Scott.

Dawn: Oh, don't tell me you changed your mind about him.

Chad: Well, he's not such a bad guy after all.

Dawn: Coming from you, big brother, that's like a standing ovation.

Chad: Yeah, you're right.

Dawn: I can't tell you how much it means to me for the two men in my life to like each other.

Chad: Well, you got it.

Dawn: What, are you leaving?

Chad: Yeah, I should probably get back to work, unless you need me.

Dawn: No, no, I'm fine. I'm on the mend. I told you that.

Chad: You sure?

Dawn: Yes, I'm fine. Fine.

Chad: Ok, well, you call me if you need me, all right?

Dawn: Ok.

Dawn: Bye.

Dawn: "A prostitute"?

Cheryl: Momma?

[Mary gasps]

Mary: You startled me. Did your dad just send you up?

Cheryl: No. No, I was in Scott's apartment. Dawn's sick.

Mary: Yes, I know, I saw her last night. How is she doing this morning?

Cheryl: She's -- she's doing ok. But I'm going to get her some aspirin, anyway. Have you heard anything more from Cass?

Mary: Cass and Adam are on their way to check out a lead because there is a very, very slim chance that maybe Kathleen was not on that plane.

Cheryl: Oh, wouldn't that be wonderful?

Mary: Yeah, so -- so what we'll do is we'll just wait to hear.

Cheryl: So is that what you're doing here, just waiting?

Mary: No, here -- here, I'm -- I'm looking.

Cheryl: You're looking? For what?

Mary: I'm looking -- I'm looking at this place. It's cute, don't you think? I mean, it's kind of cozy.

Cheryl: What are you talking about?

Mary: This apartment.

Cheryl: What, are you looking for an apartment for somebody?

Mary: Yeah, me.

Cheryl: You?

Mary: Yeah.

Cheryl: Why? Mom, your place is beautiful. Why would you want to -- um --

Mary: No, it has absolutely nothing to do with your father.

Cheryl: Right. Then why?

Mary: Practical reasons. I can save a lot of money living here.

Cheryl: Right. So maybe someday you could afford to live in a nice place.

Mary: You trying to discourage me?

Cheryl: No. No, I think it's fantastic. I would love to have you here.

Mary: You think it's right for me, then?

Cheryl: No. I think it's perfect. It's -- it's cozy.

Mary: Yeah.

Cheryl: And -- and it's cute, like you said.

Mary: Yeah, and the price is certainly right, you know, considering that I own the place and all.

Cheryl: And you'd be right upstairs from all of us.

Mary: And all the good cooking.

Cheryl: Right, the cooking.

Mary: I -- I miss this place sometimes.

Cheryl: What, do you miss being a waitress?

Mary: No, I -- I love my job. Michael is a great boss. The hours are a little long.

Cheryl: I don't get to see you around here anymore.

Mary: I know, and I deeply regret that. So, you see, probably, that's -- that's a big part of why I want to come back here. All right? I miss being part of, you know, the family here.

Cheryl: Yeah.

Amanda: Mitch?

Mitch: Yeah?

Amanda: Um -- look, I'm sorry.

Mitch: You don't have to make an apology to me.

Amanda: I never meant to hurt Sam.

Mitch: Look, I'm sure you didn't.

Amanda: I'm hurting, too.

Mitch: You don't have to explain this to me.

Amanda: I feel like I do.

Mitch: Well, it's none of my business.

Amanda: I know what you think. You think that because I'm rich, my feelings don't run as deep.

Mitch: Don't tell me what I think.

Amanda: Well, you're wrong.

Mitch: No, I'm not wrong, because that's not what I think. Do you understand?

Amanda: I always liked you.

Mitch: Well, I like you.

Amanda: Well, can you do me a favor? If you see Sam -- um -- can you tell him that I'm working in my father's office from now on?

Mitch: I'll tell him.

Amanda: Ok. That's what this memo is about.

Mitch: Ok. I better go.

Amanda: Mitch, wait -- um -- can you tell him one more thing for me? Never mind.

Mitch: You love him, don't you?

[Door opens]

Cheryl: Hey. Do you realize how many brands of aspirin there are? I mean, not to mention, aspirin-free aspirin. Here you go -- extra strength.

Dawn: Thanks.

Cheryl: I'll get you some water. When you see Scott, tell him he's going to get a new neighbor soon.

Dawn: That's great.

Cheryl: My mom's moving down the hall. Yeah. I think it's great, too. I really, really missed having her around.

Dawn: Yeah, she's a lovely woman.

Cheryl: Yeah. I gave her kind of a hard time when she first came back to Bay City. Now I love her so much. She really listens when you talk to her. I don't know what I'd do without her. Dawn? Hey, what is it? Hey, come here, talk to me. Is it something I said?

Dawn: No.

Cheryl: Hey. Dawn.

Vince: Uh -- are you sure you want to move in here?

Mary: Obviously, you're not sure.

Vince: Well, it is quite small.

Mary: I don't need big.

Vince: Yeah, but this is a long way from Bay View Towers.

Mary: So what if it is?

Vince: Well, I was just, you know, pointing that out.

Mary: Gee, I can't tell you how much I appreciate that.

Vince: Why are you so mad?

Mary: I'm mad because I'm -- I'm mad -- never mind why I'm mad!

Vince: All right, all right, I won't mind.

Mary: Sometimes I get a little lonely, ok?

Vince: Oh, come on. You? Give me a break. I don't know anybody in Bay City more popular than you. I mean, everybody knows Mary. Everybody -- everybody loves Mary.

Mary: There are people that I don't get to see very often that I miss.

Vince: You miss us enough to sleep on a Murphy bed?

Mary: Well, that's not going to bother me.

Vince: Uh-huh.

Mary: Yeah -- it's only temporary, you know, but right now, this is where I want to be.

Vince: Well, I guess you could do a lot worse.

Mary: Now, if this is a problem for you, I --

Vince: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I didn't say that.

Mary: Well, you said a lot of other things.

Vince: Yeah, well, I just want to be clear as to why you're moving in here.

Mary: Vince, I don't know how to be any clearer.

Vince: You miss the people around Mary's Place.

Mary: I had a lot of fun here.

Vince: Yeah.

Cass: Am I interrupting? Ada said I'd find you up here.

Mary: What is it? Is it something about Kathleen?

Cass: Uh -- Adam and I went over to "Brava." And Mitch had some blowups of photographs from the crash -- the plane.

Vince: What did you see?

Cass: You were right, Vince.

Mary: Cass.

Cass: Kathleen is never coming back again, Mary.

[Mary sighs]

Mary: Are you sure?

Cass: It's over. It's all over.

Scott: How is she?

Cheryl: Um -- I think she's upset about something.

Scott: How's her fever?

Cheryl: I don't know. I gave her some aspirin.

Scott: Ahem. Hey. Hey, how are you feeling?

Dawn: Oh.

Scott: Hmm?

Dawn: I'm glad you're back.

Scott: Got here as soon as I could.

Cheryl: Well, I'll -- I'll leave you guys alone. Just call me if you need anything, ok?

Dawn: Thanks, Cheryl.

Scott: Thanks, Cheryl.

Cheryl: Ok.

Scott: I've been thinking about you all morning.

Dawn: How was your meeting?

Scott: Well, it went great. I mean, I pretty much put myself out of a job, though.

Dawn: What?

Scott: Yeah, this couple comes in, they were filing for a divorce, and yours truly talks them into trying counseling. I just couldn't figure that they really wanted a divorce. They were having money problems, they have three kids, and the wife is going back to school. That put a lot of pressure on the family --

Dawn: You were going to keep it from me, weren't you?

Scott: Dawn, what --

Dawn: Scott, why didn't you tell me? Why didn't you tell me?

Amanda: Hi, Alvin.

Alvin: How's it going, Amanda?

Amanda: Here, read for yourself.

Cass' voice: "Cass Winthrop is the most stubborn, argumentative, provocative, irritating, egotistical, unpredictable, presumptuous, aggravating man I've ever met. Which is, I suppose, why I fell in love with him. And why I'll always love him. Even after I'm long gone from this world."
