Nicole: A surprise?
Nicole: For me?
Cass: Two for two.
Nicole: You have a surprise for me?
Cass: Oh! Three for three. I'm going to have to move you up in the lineup.
Nicole: Oh, what is it?
[Knock on door]
Nicole: Is that it?
Cass: Oh, yeah, the surprise knock -- it gets them every time.
Nicole: Oh! What?
Donna: Nicole? Nicole, are you in there? Oh! Oh, good.
Donna: Hi. You would not believe the stores. Everything is crazy out there, but I managed to put a dent in my Christmas list. Oh, Cass, hi!
Cass: Donna, you really shouldn't have.
Donna: Oh, am I interrupting?
Nicole: Well --
Cass: No, not at all.
Nicole: No, Cass was about to tell me something.
Cass: But it can wait.
Nicole: But maybe it shouldn't.
Cass: We'll talk about it later. You know, I haven't even made up my list yet, and here Donna has already put a dent in hers.
Nicole: Cass --
Cass: Every year I swear to myself I'm going to get all my Christmas stuff out of the way by thanksgiving.
Nicole: Cass --
Cass: And what happens? The Christmas eve stampede.
Nicole: Donna, why did you have to show up now?
Vicky: Hi, Jamie.
Jamie: Oh, I've been looking for you.
Vicky: You were? What for?
Jamie: Well, I saw this terrific sale on snow tires at the Corner garage.
Vicky: Oh, yeah. Well, I'll be sure to stop there first thing after work. Well, how did everything go when you went home?
Jamie: How did what go?
Vicky: Well, telling Lisa that we got stuck in the snowstorm together.
Jamie: Oh -- it went fine.
Vicky: I was just hoping she wasn't upset.
Jamie: Why should she be?
Vicky: Exactly. She doesn't know anything about the party, right?
Doctor: Excuse me. Dr. Frame.
Jamie: Ah, Nathan. Hi. What's up?
Nathan: I got those test results you wanted. Dawn Rollo?
Jamie: Oh, not Dawn. How could this happen?
Julie Ann: I hate going shopping these days. It's like going on a New York subway. You have to push your way in, shove for every inch, get yelled at, get stabbed on the foot -- hey, what's -- what's wrong? Are you ok?
Julie Ann: No, you're not. You're white as a sheet.
Amanda: Well, I guess this is what being pregnant feels like.
Julie Ann: Are you nauseous? Do you need something?
Amanda: No. It's passing.
Julie Ann: Are you sure?
Amanda: Yeah, it's over. It's over.
Julie Ann: What happened last night? Did you talk to him?
Amanda: Yeah, I talked to Sam.
Julie Ann: What did he say?
Amanda: I couldn't tell him.
Julie Ann: Oh, Amanda --
Amanda: Julie Ann, I'm standing there over pizza. I couldn't tell him that I was --
Sam: Hi, Julie Ann. Is Mr. Cory in? I want to talk to him.
Julie Ann: Yes, he's in, but he's kind of tied up right now. Do you want to leave a message?
Sam: No. I don't have time.
Amanda: I don't think I should have said anything about the pizza.
Julie Ann: What's wrong?
Amanda: I think I'm going to be sick.
Rachel: Amanda? What's wrong? Honey, what's wrong?
Rachel: Amanda, honey, are you ill?
Rachel: No? Julie Ann, didn't she just say that she was sick?
Julie Ann: Well --
Amanda: I have a headache.
Rachel: A headache?
Amanda: Yeah. I've had it all day.
Rachel: Who gave you the headache?
Amanda: It's just been one of those days.
Rachel: Have you taken something for it?
Amanda: Good idea. Julie Ann, can you watch this for me, please. I'll just be a minute.
Mac: What are we looking at?
Mac: Where'd she go?
Rachel: To take something for a headache. She does have a headache, doesn't she, Julie Ann?
Julie Ann: Yes.
Rachel: No, she doesn't. Do you know what's wrong.
Julie Ann: She said she wasn't feeling very well.
Rachel: Well, it's not hard to figure out why.
Mac: Sam Fowler?
Rachel: I guess it's going to take her a little longer to get over this.
Mac: Has she confided in you, Julie Ann?
Julie Ann: Some.
Mac: She doesn't tell us much. Do you think she's been badly hurt?
Julie Ann: Look, I really got to get home.
Rachel: It's obvious, Mac.
Mac: Well, I wish there was some way I could make it easier for her.
Rachel: Well, we all do.
Mac: She's just got to accept she's going to have a brilliant future, but Sam Fowler is going to be no part of it.
Rachel: Mac, this isn't about careers.
Mac: If I sound callous, I don't mean to. I mean that hard work is the best thing for her right now. She's got to move on. If she wants a happy life, she's got to leave Fowler and all this behind her.
Rachel: Are you serious?
Mac: What does that mean?
Rachel: Nothing. I have the article that you wanted to go over before I send it to Layout.
Mac: Did you get a chance to do that errand for me yet?
Julie Ann: I was just about to go before I stopped and talked to Amanda.
Mac: Well, don't forget it. I'm definitely going to need it today.
Amanda: Give me my purse, please.
Julie Ann: Where are you going?
Amanda: I can't stand this anymore. I have to go talk to Jamie.
Vicky: Jamie, what is it? What's the matter?
Jamie: I can't discuss right now.
Vicky: Well, of course. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to --
Jamie: Look, I won't be able to talk right now, ok, Vicky?
Vicky: Ok, I'm sorry. Maybe we can talk later.
Jamie: Yeah, maybe later.
Mrs. Weller: Good afternoon, Victoria.
Vicky: Oh, hello, Mrs. Weller.
Mrs. Weller: Now, this isn't your regular break, is it?
Vicky: I'm not on break, no. I had to do something for Dr. Frame.
Mrs. Weller: Ah, well, that something seems to be over, so why don't we get back to our work, hmm?
Vicky: Yes, ma'am.
[Mrs. Weller chuckles]
Jamie: This doesn't make any sense.
Nathan: I know it.
Jamie: I know she had some kind of pneumonia, but -- but this --
Nathan: We -- we should run the ELISA test.
Jamie: Damn this thing. Damn it! Yeah, run the test, right away.
Nathan: I'm all set up.
Jamie: I want the results as soon as you get them, ok?
Vicky: Jamie -- Jamie, I want to apologize for before.
Jamie: That's ok.
Vicky: I was intruding on something that was none of my business.
Jamie: Don't worry about it.
Vicky: It was just that I was concerned. You looked very upset --
Jamie: Listen, I'm ok now. Really, I'm fine.
Vicky: Ok. That guy that was here -- does he know Lisa?
Jamie: What guy?
Vicky: The guy you were just talking to -- and I was going to invite him to Lisa's party if he knows her.
Jamie: Oh, yeah, yeah, I think he does.
Vicky: Well, he's really good-looking. What's his name?
Jamie: Nathan. Nathan.
Vicky: Nathan who?
Jamie: Look, Vicky, the last thing I want to talk about right now is the party, ok?
Vicky: I'm sorry.
Chad: Jamie, I was just in to see Dawn, and she's not any better, and I want to know why.
Donna: I did interrupt something, didn't I?
Nicole: Cass had a surprise for me.
Donna: Oh, honey, I'm sorry.
Nicole: And I still don't know what it is.
Donna: Well, do you want me to leave? I --
Nicole: Oh, no, Donna, no. Don't be ridiculous.
Donna: You really --
Nicole: He'll come back.
Donna: You really are starting to become interested in him, aren't you?
Nicole: No, I -- you know, I really hardly know him.
Donna: Well, now, you were attracted to Rex.
Nicole: I was an idiot.
Donna: Yes, but, you see, Cass has all of Rex's good points.
Nicole: He's also still in love with Kathleen.
Donna: Nicole, I don't want to sound insensitive, but, you know, you could help him get over her.
Nicole: Donna, why are you pressuring me about this?
Donna: I just want you to be happy.
Nicole: You mean get married, settle down.
Donna: Well, would that be so terrible?
Nicole: Well, I just don't want to think about it right now.
Donna: Nicole, you have never wanted to think about it.
Nicole: Donna, remember our parents? You remember that marriage?
Donna: You know I do.
Nicole: Then I would think that you would understand. When it comes to settling down, I am just not interested. I don't want a relationship, Donna.
Donna: All right. Then what do you want?
Donna: That's it?
Nicole: Yep. That's all I care about.
Donna: Hmm, well, I don't believe you.
Nicole: This fashion show in Monte Carlo -- it means everything to me right now.
Donna: Mm-hmm, that's what you say.
Nicole: I mean it, Donna.
Donna: Oh, of course, I know you do, fine. That's all you care about? Nicole, I want this show to be a big success, too. It will be.
Nicole: Do you know what I keep wishing?
Donna: That mama were still here.
Nicole: How did you know that?
Donna: Just a good guess. Do you know what? She would be so proud of you right now.
Nicole: You know what? Sometimes I miss her so much.
Donna: I know you do. I know. And I just wish that I could help you the way she would have.
Nicole: You do, huh?
Donna: Yes, I mean, sometimes I get so frustrated because I don't think I can do enough for you.
Nicole: You know what? You can.
Donna: What? How?
Nicole: What are you doing in February?
Donna: Well, let me check my social calendar here --
Nicole: Donna, I'm serious.
Donna: Nicole, that's a long time away.
Mais peut-etre tu vous
venir avec moi Paris.
Donna: To Paris? With you?
Nicole: Pourquoi pas?
Donna: I -- I -- well, why? I mean -- wait, you want me to --
Nicole: I want you to work with me. I want you to be my coordinator. And you would also be my moral support.
Donna: I don't believe this.
Nicole: Oh, no, but, Donna, what about the baby? Can you travel in February?
Donna: Well, of course I can. I can travel up till my seventh month.
Nicole: Well, that does it. It's all settled. The job is yours.
Donna: No, no, wait, no, wait. Nicole, how do you know that I'm qualified?
Nicole: Donna, I will teach you everything you need to know.
Donna: Now, wait a minute here. Are you doing this because you really want my help or you just want to keep me busy?
Nicole: Would I do that?
Donna: Yes, you would.
Nicole: Donna, come on, we will have a great time.
Donna: I don't know. I -- Nicole, I just don't think I would be enough help to you. I --
Nicole: Oh, of course you would. I mean, it would just be a big help to have you around. And you know what? I think it might be good for you, too.
Donna: Oh, I love you. Thank you.
Nicole: So you'll do it?
Donna: I -- I will -- I'll think about it, ok?
Nicole: No, no, there is nothing to think about. You are hired.
Donna: This means so much to me. You know that?
Nicole: Well, you know what? This means a lot to me, too.
Donna: Good. Oh, listen, in the meantime, I have got so many packages here, and some surprises. Can I hide some in your bedroom?
Nicole: Oh, sure.
Donna: Oh, good.
Nicole: Well, let me help you.
Donna: All right, all right, that would be great.
Nicole: Oh, you've got to show me what you got.
Donna: All right, and you're not going to believe some of it.
[Knock on door]
Nicole: Oh, what -- oh, who is it?
Nicole: Michael, hi.
Michael: I catch you at a bad time?
Nicole: Well, no, no, you didn't, no.
Michael: Well, I just, you know, wanted to stop by and see how you were.
Nicole: Oh. Oh, I'm sorry. Come in, please.
Michael: Thank you. Nicole -- well, I hope you understand why it is that Donna and I aren't together anymore.
Nicole: I think I do.
Michael: And I hope that you don't think I'm presumptuous in wishing that we could remain friends.
Nicole: No, I don't think it's presumptuous of you at all. And you know what? I really hope so, too.
Michael: Well, if you ever need anything at all, feel free to ask, ok?
Michael: Why didn't you tell me that she was --
Nicole: Michael, I'm sorry. Will you -- why don't you both just excuse me for a minute. I just remembered I really have something that I have to go ask Cass.
Michael: I wonder why she left.
Donna: Because she thinks we need some time alone. And she's right.
Mac: The essence is very clear. It just needs tightening.
Mac: Use your blue pencil.
Rachel: Well, what would you like me to do, cut out every other word?
Mac: Rachel, I said it's a fine piece of writing. There's just too much of it.
Rachel: All right, I'll reduce it by half. Would that make you happy?
Mac: Why don't we move on to the layout on Etruscan pottery.
Mac: This is fine stuff, very textured -- what is it? Rachel?
Rachel: I'm worried about Amanda.
Mac: Well, I still think the more she has to do --
Rachel: She always holds things inside when she's hurt. She's been doing that since she was a little child.
Mac: That's the way she handles things.
Rachel: Yeah, well, she's hiding too much.
Mac: I think maybe what she feels for Fowler is like a schoolgirl crush.
Rachel: Isn't that a tad cavalier?
Mac: Well, I don't mean to minimize it, but I certainly hope he is not the man for her.
Rachel: Well, I have to agree with you on that.
Mac: And I'm glad she's here, where she can focus on her work, which has been exemplary.
Rachel: Before the breakup.
Mac: After. I mean, if she's unhappy, she's still doing a fine job here.
Rachel: Yeah, well, that's because she's doing an exemplary job of hiding her feelings. That's probably why she's not feeling well.
Mac: She has a headache. That happens.
Rachel: When people's personal lives fall apart, they tend to throw themselves into their work.
Mac: And write lengthy articles on neoclassicists?
Rachel: I don't think this is funny, Mac.
Mac: Well, I don't, either.
Rachel: I don't know what you want me to do. I can't go on apologizing to you because I didn't tell you that Sam is Mitch's brother.
Mac: I don't expect you to.
Rachel: I don't see that you're trying to change anything.
Mac: Well, I agree that there is too much strain.
Rachel: It's affecting the whole family, Mac.
Mac: I know, Rachel.
Rachel: Well, what are we going to do about it?
Mac: Yes. All right. I'll be right down. I have a sales meeting.
Rachel: Well, just don't go to it.
Mac: It's very important, Rachel.
Rachel: Mac, we have to work this out sometime.
Mac: We will. We will settle it once and for all -- today.
Rachel: I hope so.
Rachel: I hope so!
Chad: Don't double-talk me!
Jamie: Chad, I need to make sure of my diagnosis.
Chad: Look, I'm going to ask you one more time. What is going on with my sister?
Jamie: Chad, will you calm down. There's some things I need to know about Dawn.
Chad: What things?
Jamie: I want some more details of her medical history.
Jamie: Can you tell me about when she lived in New York?
Chad: What? Was she ever sick there? What do you mean?
Jamie: Did you know any of her friends?
Chad: What do they have to do with this?
Jamie: What were they like? Were you ever concerned about any of them?
Chad: "Concerned"? What are you saying?
Jamie: These are things I need to know, Chad.
Chad: Look, doctor, will you just stop beating around the bush. Dawn is my only family, and I demand to know what you think is wrong with her.
Jamie: Do you think Dawn ever took drugs?
Chad: What? Are you crazy?
Jamie: If you know, please tell me.
Chad: She wouldn't do that. Dawn is not that kind of girl.
Jamie: I'm not passing judgment.
Chad: Well, what are you doing?
Jamie: This could be very important for me to know, Chad. Now, think about it, ok?
Chad: Where are you going?
Jamie: Listen, I'll be back in a few minutes, ok?
Chad: You think Dawn is sick because she took drugs?
Jamie: I won't know anything until the results are back.
Chad: What are you saying, she's some kind of junkie?
Jamie: I am not saying that. And I don't want to alarm you. Now, just -- we'll talk later, ok?
Chad: Look, I don't want to talk! You just make sure that my sister is ok!
Amanda: Hi. Are you busy? Can you talk?
Jamie: Yeah, yeah, sure. Let's check this room. Here, come on in here. What's going on? You look terrible.
Amanda: Yeah, well, I don't feel all that great, either.
Jamie: You want to tell me about it?
Amanda: Ahem. Jamie, what would you do if Lisa --
Jamie: Why are you asking me about Lisa?
Amanda: I'm just trying to get an honest opinion, that's all.
Jamie: Ok, go on.
Amanda: Ok. If you and Lisa broke up and you found out that she was pregnant --
Jamie: What are talking about?
Amanda: Just answer my question, Jamie. What would you do?
Jamie: I saw Dr. Crane in the E.R. She said she saw you yesterday.
Amanda: Yeah, she did.
Jamie: Are you pregnant?
Amanda: Oh, Jamie --
Jamie: It's ok. It's ok. Listen, I've got to see a patient, but I'll see if I can get someone to cover for me. Come here. Come here. Here. Sit down. Sit down right here, ok? I'll be right back. Don't you move.
Adam: Forget it. Amanda?
Amanda: Adam, hi. What are you doing here?
Adam: The worst part of my job.
Amanda: What's that?
Adam: I got a cop in here. A drug dealer shot him in the stomach. They don't know if he's going to make it or not.
Amanda: Oh, I'm sorry.
Adam: His family's standing outside. They're all half scared out of their wits. They're waiting to take him out the E.R. And into a private room, and then I'm supposed to try and question the man after all that's happened.
Amanda: It must be awful.
Adam: Stomach wounds are the worst. What are you doing here?
Adam: Are you ok? You look like you've been crying or something.
Amanda: No, no, I'm just waiting to talk to Jamie, that's all.
Vicky: Hi, Adam.
Adam: Have you ever met my cousin Amanda Cory? This is Vicky Love.
Vicky: We are cold pizza buddies, right?
Vicky: You are coming to the party tonight, right? 8:00? And I would suggest you come fashionably early.
Amanda: Well, I --
Vicky: Adam, you are coming tonight, right?
Adam: I'll try.
Vicky: And you're going to be there?
Amanda: Well, I don't know. We'll see.
Vicky: It is your brother's girlfriend's party.
Amanda: Yeah, I know. Sure.
Amanda: I wonder where Jamie could be. I think I'm going to go look for him. Excuse me.
Vicky: Was I too pushy?
Adam: You? Oh, it's not possible.
Vicky: Good. Oh, I have so much to do. I am planning this party all by myself, and I don't even know why I'm here because the whole suite has to be decorated and I haven't even gotten Lisa's cake yet.
Adam: Well, listen, as much as I'd like to string some crepe paper, I'm afraid I've got an assignment.
Vicky: Oh. Well, I'll get some volunteer to do it. But I expect you to be there, and don't be late.
Mrs. Weller: Victoria, I thought I told you not --
Vicky: Oh, you know, excuse me, but I am very busy.
Mrs. Weller: You are?
Vicky: Yes. This man has to get to the emergency room right away.
Mrs. Weller: He looks just fine to me.
Vicky: I know. That's just how it starts.
Mrs. Weller: What starts?
Adam: Oh, oh, yeah, there it goes again. Oh, oh, quick.
Vicky: Yes. Oh, put your arm around me. Yes, excuse us.
Adam: You'd better help me. Excuse me.
Vicky: Yes, come on.
Adam: Oh, thank you. Oh.
Jamie: Didn't you listen to me when I told you, when I talked to you?
Amanda: Yes, I did.
Jamie: Well, what has happened, then?
Amanda: I don't know!
Jamie: Come on in here. Come on. Listen, I'm sorry, but who else in the family knows about this?
Amanda: I haven't -- I couldn't tell anybody.
Jamie: What about Sam?
Jamie: You're going to have to tell him.
Amanda: I'm afraid.
Jamie: Of what?
Amanda: Of what he's going to do.
Jamie: He's as responsible for this as you are.
Amanda: Jamie, right now we're not even talking. How can I tell him that I'm -- I'm pregnant?
Jamie: Do you still love him?
Jamie: Amanda, I'm sorry I'm giving you the third degree.
Amanda: It's ok.
Jamie: Well, how does Sam feel about you?
Amanda: You mean, does he love me?
Amanda: He said he did.
Jamie: Well, what do you think?
Amanda: Right now he's so mad at me I don't know what he feels.
Jamie: You're still going to have to tell him.
Amanda: I can't, not now.
Jamie: Do you want to have this baby?
Amanda: I don't know. Jamie, I don't know.
Jamie: You're going to have to tell Mom and Mac, too, you know.
Amanda: They have enough problems of their own.
Jamie: Yeah, I can tell. The house has been kind of chilly lately.
Amanda: That's my fault. Everything is my fault.
Jamie: No, it's not your fault, and Mom will tell you the same thing when you talk to her.
Amanda: I can't.
Jamie: Amanda, she loves you. Just talk to her, please? Do you want me to go with you?
Amanda: I don't know. I don't know anything. Jamie, what am I going to do?
Nicole: Aha! And you thought you could escape.
Cass: Were you looking for me?
Nicole: Looking for you? I have been going nuts. How could you just walk out on me like that?
Cass: Well, you had company.
Nicole: We could have gone into the other room.
Cass: Oh, that would be rude.
Nicole: No. What's rude is telling somebody you have a surprise for them and then disappearing into thin air!
Cass: You have been going nuts, haven't you?
Nicole: You're enjoying this, aren't you?
Cass: Listen, would you like something to drink? A glass of wine?
Nicole: No, I don't want any wine. I want to know what the surprise is.
Cass: Ok, ok, let me see. Which pocket did I put it in?
Cheryl: Hey, Cass, Nicole.
Cass: Oh, hi, honey.
Cheryl: I hope I'm not interrupting anything.
Cass: Oh, not at all, not at all. Why don't you sit down.
Cheryl: No, I can't. I'm in a rush. Chad said I might be seeing you later?
Nicole: Yes, I know. I'm really looking forward to it.
Cass: Why are you going to be meeting Nicole?
Nicole: I need some in-house models.
Cheryl: And I need a job.
Nicole: I think we can work something out.
Cass: Oh, that's great.
Nicole: Cheryl modeled in my fashion show. She has a very bright future.
Cheryl: I really appreciate this chance, Nicole. It means a lot to me, especially right now.
Nicole: Well, I'm not doing it as any favor, believe me.
Cheryl: Well, thanks. Well, I got to get these pictures over to "Brava."
Cass: Oh, are you working for them, too?
Cheryl: Yeah, yeah, on some promotional ads.
Cass: Well, that's terrific. Listen, give my best to Mary and Vince, ok?
Cheryl: Yeah, I will.
Cheryl: Thanks again, Nicole.
Cass: Bye-bye, sweetie.
Nicole: She's such a great kid.
Cass: Thank you for giving her a chance.
Nicole: It really was just good business.
Cass: Which brings me to my surprise. What pocket was it -- oh, here it is, over here.
Michael: Donna, there's nothing to talk about.
Donna: How can you say that?
Michael: I've made up my mind.
Donna: You're not even going to give me a chance, are you?
Michael: The divorce is proceeding as planned.
Donna: And I know it's my fault. But I don't see how what we had can just disappear overnight.
Michael: Well, it pretty much did for me, Donna.
Donna: I am carrying your child!
Michael: So you say.
Donna: Michael, it is. It's your baby.
Michael: Look, I don't want to talk about this baby!
Donna: Wait a minute. You still don't believe you're the father, do you? You still think I'm lying to you.
Michael: Look, you lied about everything else!
Donna: I am not lying about this baby.
Michael: If you will excuse me, Donna --
Donna: No, Michael, wait a minute! Michael, wait! Now, stop!
Michael: Donna, it's no use.
Donna: No. What if I can prove to you that this isn't John's baby? Would you stop the divorce then?
Michael: That's not the point, Donna.
Donna: Well, that is the problem, isn't it?
Michael: No. You are. You're the problem.
Donna: All right. I am the problem. But I am going to prove to you that this is your baby. Look, I have heard about this prenatal paternity test, and I want to take it. Now, do I have your permission?
Michael: Donna, do what you want to do.
Donna: Good. Then I will call Jamie this afternoon.
Michael: There's a lot more involved here than just this baby.
Donna: You know, I go to bed alone at night wanting you next to me. And I know you have to want the same thing.
Michael: It's not that simple, Donna.
Donna: I am not going to give up.
Michael: Well, you should.
Donna: Michael --
Michael: Goodbye, Donna.
Donna: Michael, say that you don't love me. Say it. Say it!
Michael: This conversation is over.
Nicole: Whew. This is the surprise, huh?
Cass: Good, isn't it?
Nicole: Oh, Cass, I can't take your money.
Cass: You already have.
Nicole: Well, I am giving it back.
Cass: It's made out to you.
Nicole: I won't deposit it!
Cass: You're getting awful grand for somebody who doesn't have a dime.
Nicole: Why are you doing this?
Cass: Look, Rex already put almost every cent I have into making your business a success. So if I'm going to recoup any of my losses, I have to invest.
Nicole: Somehow, I don't buy that.
Cass: What do you think this is, charity?
Nicole: Well --
Cass: You don't know me very well.
Nicole: Where did you get all this money?
Cass: You just better be as good as you say you are --
Nicole: Where, Cass?
Cass: Because I don't know much about designing dresses, although I have a pretty good feel for what looks good on a woman.
Nicole: Where did you get the money, Cass?
Cass: I'm back to work at Cory.
Nicole: Oh, well, Mac must pay pretty well.
Cass: What, are you with the F.B.I.?
Nicole: Wait a minute. This is an advance from Kathleen's book, isn't it?
Cass: So what?
Nicole: I can't accept that money!
Cass: Look, I have to take this chance.
Nicole: Well, I don't!
Cass: Nicole, listen to me. There is nothing in the world that I hate more than being broke. I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't think you could make me a lot of money.
Nicole: Well, what if I don't?
Cass: You will.
Nicole: How can you be so sure?
Cass: Because I'm going to be your partner.
Nicole: My partner?
Cass: Sure. I'll set up the company so that we split the profits 50/50.
Nicole: 50/50, huh?
Nicole: Oh, it still doesn't seem right.
Cass: It's for a very good cause. I know Kathleen would approve of this. In fact, she'd be very proud.
Nicole: You're really pulling in the big guns.
Cass: All right! Partners! Now, first thing I want you to do is find a factory and a showroom --
Cass: And then I want you to hire cutters and seamstresses. And most important --
Nicole: Oh, talk about pressure.
Cass: Most important, be hard-working, be brilliant, and be extremely successful.
Nicole: Nothing to it.
Cass: You got a lot of talent, Nicole.
Nicole: How do you know, though?
Cass: I believe in you. You just have to believe in yourself.
Nicole: What would I do without you?
Jamie: Amanda, you can't go through this alone.
Amanda: I've got to go.
Amanda: Back to work.
Jamie: You can take the afternoon off.
Amanda: I need my job. If I didn't have my job, I don't know what I'd do. Thanks, Jamie. I love you.
Jamie: Listen, I'll call you, ok? I'll call you later on.
Amanda: Yeah, well, don't worry about me, ok? I'll -- I'll work something out.
Adam: Jamie, is Amanda ok?
Adam: Well, you all ready for the party?
Adam: For Lisa. Remember her?
Jamie: Party! Yes! Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I hope -- I really hope we pull this surprise off.
Adam: Yeah, you know, Vicky's really been working overtime on this one.
Jamie: Yeah, why the smile?
Adam: She did the most amazing thing. I'll have to tell you about it tonight.
Adam: You know, she really makes me laugh.
Jamie: Well, it's been a while since you've done that.
Adam: It's been too long, cousin. It's been too long.
Jamie: Well, just don't get stuck in the snowstorm with her.
Adam: You were stuck in a snowstorm with Vicky?
Jamie: Yeah. Didn't I tell you? Her car broke down and we were out in the middle of nowhere and we got stuck in this general store with nothing but a potbelly stove between us.
Adam: It was just the two of you?
Jamie: Yeah, yeah. And there I was, trying to do all these things, like, you know, get the fire going and contact the outside world and --
Adam: What was she doing?
Jamie: Complaining, naturally.
Adam: About what?
Jamie: Everything. I mean, first, you know, she's too cold and then she's hungry and then the fire's too warm and the window gets stuck and I open the window and there she is standing with nothing on while the snow is just billowing in on her --
Adam: Wait a minute, wait, wait, wait, wait. She had no clothes on?
Jamie: Yeah, well, we were sleeping.
Adam: With no clothes on?
Jamie: She had a blanket. I told her to take her clothes off.
Adam: You told her that?
Jamie: So she'd be warmer.
Adam: With no clothes on?
Jamie: Adam, it's -- it's because of the warmth between her bare skin and the blanket -- you got it?
Adam: Did she buy that?
Jamie: There was nothing to buy! I'm talking physics here.
Adam: Oh, cousin, I hope Lisa has a very short leash for you.
Jamie: Ok. Go ahead, have a good time at my expense. You'll get yours.
Adam: I can just see it now. "Listen, if you really want to stay warmer, just open the window and stand there naked."
Jamie: Very funny.
Adam: Listen, you know, it almost has an air of authenticity about it. That's what I like. I'm going to have to try this one out, cousin. I'm going to keep this one. It's a good one.
Vicky: Hey. Ready to party?
Jamie: I can't party.
Vicky: Jamie, you've worked overtime today. I mean, you've covered for Dr. Kim and Dr. Chavez. I think it's time you take time off.
Jamie: I'm waiting for some lab results, ok?
Vicky: Michael's suite has a phone. Can't you use it?
Jamie: Yeah, but I would rather --
Vicky: But you will. Come on!
Jamie: Oh, Nathan. Hi.
Nathan: Oh, oh, oh. Don't have it yet, doctor.
Jamie: Well, listen, I'll leave my number at the front desk, ok? Call me as soon as you do.
Nathan: I will.
Jamie: And make it snappy, ok?
Nathan: The moment they're in.
Sam: Yes, on my new cover design. The test results from the test market.
Mac: Oh, yes. I don't think they're back yet. Amanda's handling that, and she's not in just now.
Sam: I see. Well, I'll come back.
Mac: All right.
Rachel: Mac, I rewrote my column.
Mac: Oh, good.
Rachel: So I think if you have some time, we should meet now.
Mac: Hmm. Oh, by the way, Julie Ann, didn't I see an envelope addressed to Mrs. Cory on your desk?
Julie Ann: Yes, Mr. Cory. Now, where did I put it?
Mac: It looked like a card.
Julie Ann: It was a Christmas card, hand delivered.
Rachel: Well, I'll pick it up later. Mac, we really should meet now.
Mac: Rachel, if somebody took the trouble to send a card by messenger --
Rachel: I'll pick it up later, Mac.
Julie Ann: Here it is.
Mac: I think it must be very important.
Rachel: It's a Christmas card!
Mac: Well, why not open it as long as it's -- you got it?
Rachel: "To Santa's little helper." "Santa's little helper"?
Mac: Well, what could these be?
Rachel: They're airline tickets, Mac. Anybody can see that.
Mac: New York. New York! Wowee!
Rachel: Give me those.
Rachel: We're leaving Friday, coming back Sunday?
Mac: Short, but sweet.
Rachel: Christmas shopping for a whole weekend in New York?
Mac: A weekend in New York not entirely devoted to shopping.
Rachel: You did this for us?
Mac: I think it's been a little too long since we were alone together, away someplace.
Rachel: Oh, Mac.
Mac: Would you step into my office?
Mac: I'll be in conference.
Julie Ann: I'll hold your calls.
Julie Ann: What happened with Jamie?
Amanda: Oh --
Julie Ann: Didn't you get to talk to him?
Amanda: Yeah, I talked to him. He thinks that I should tell everybody.
Julie Ann: Everyone?
Amanda: Even Sam.
Sam: I'd like to talk to you about the test results.
Amanda: How did you know?
Nicole: Oh, Donna. I didn't think you'd still be here.
Donna: I have been waiting for you.
Nicole: You have?
Nicole: Ok, well, how did it go with Michael?
Donna: Well, Michael still thinks that I'm lying.
Nicole: But how could he?
Donna: No. No, it's ok, really, because I know he loves me. He just won't admit it, though.
Nicole: Well, what did he say?
Donna: It's not what he said, but -- but it doesn't matter. I really feel like we've turned a new corner.
Nicole: Oh. That's great. If there's anything I can do, you let me know.
Donna: Yes. As a matter of fact, you can tell me about your surprise. I mean, you have heard what it is, now, haven't you?
Nicole: Oh, Donna. You won't believe it.
Donna: Why? What did Cass do?
Nicole: He gave me the money to start up my business.
Donna: Cass did that?
Nicole: Yep! We're partners!
Donna: Oh, honey! Oh, that's wonderful! Wonderful!
Nicole: It's great.
Donna: I can't believe it!
Nicole: I know it.
[Knock on door]
Cass: Hi. Hello.
Nicole: Oh, Cass.
Cass: The door was open.
Nicole: Oh, that's ok.
Cass: Hi, Donna.
Donna: Hi, Cass.
Cass: You left a napkin full of business notes down on the table. I didn't mean to interrupt this lovely scenario.
Nicole: Oh, no. You are never an interruption, partner. Thank you.
Jamie: Well, I thought there was going to be a bunch of people here to help us decorate.
Vicky: Oh, you know how people are -- they don't like the boring stuff.
Jamie: Well, where do we start here anyway?
Vicky: Let's start right here with the balloons, ok?
Jamie: We'll need some tape.
Vicky: Yeah. Yeah, tape. Here, here it is. This is just like the other night. We make a pretty great team.
Sam: How did I know -- what do you mean?
Amanda: The results?
Sam: Yes. Mac -- Mr. Cory said you were taking care of that.
Amanda: Marketing your cover design, right.
Amanda: Well, the -- the study was only commissioned a few days ago. So they won't have the results for another few days yet.
Sam: Fine. So you'll let me know then?
Sam: Cheryl, hi.
Cheryl: I was hoping I'd run into you. I'm here for my interview, thanks to your recommendation.
Sam: Well, hey, all I did was say your name and the door seemed to open wide.
Cheryl: Last time we talked you said you were having some problems?
Sam: No more problems. No more girlfriend. It's time I got on with my life.
Cheryl: Yeah. I know exactly how you feel.
Cheryl: Hey, would you like to go to a party with me?
Sam: Sure. When?
Cheryl: Tonight. I was told to bring someone, and I don't really have anyone to bring.
Sam: Well, you do now.
Sam: Yeah. Well, where's your interview? I'll walk with you.
Cheryl: I think it's that way.
Sam: All right, come on.
Cheryl: All right.
Amanda: He's dating already.
Julie Ann: Look, he's angry.
Amanda: I didn't mean anything to him!
Julie Ann: Listen, why don't you go with me tonight -- come out, go to Lisa's party?
Amanda: I can't go to a party.
Julie Ann: Being with people will help you get over this.
Amanda: Nothing will do that. I'm going home.
Julie Ann: Amanda --
Rachel: Amanda? Amanda?
Julie Ann: She went home.
Rachel: Is she still feeling ill?
Julie Ann: I don't know.
Rachel: Maybe I better go home, too.
Cass: Now, I'm going to get out of here so that you can get to work. Right, Donna?
Donna: Yes, right, Cass.
Nicole: Oh, Cass?
Nicole: Thank you.
Cass: Oh, don't thank me. This is an investment. I expect a big return on this.
Nicole: And you'll have it.
Cass: In fact, I'm counting on it.
Nicole: What are you staring at?
Donna: You always were an open book.
Nicole: Well, I'm glad we're not playing poker.
Donna: Mm-hmm. You care about Cass --
Nicole: Donna, no. I really --
Donna: More than you're willing to admit.
Jamie: Who's coming today?
Vicky: Oh, I think you know almost everyone.
Jamie: I suppose cousin Adam's making an appearance, huh?
Vicky: Yeah, he'll show up.
Jamie: Is he your date?
Vicky: We'll see.
Jamie: Come on now. Don't play games with me.
Vicky: Well, quit pushing me at Adam.
Jamie: Well, what more could you want in a man?
Vicky: What could I want in a man? Hmm.
Jamie: Come on. This I got to hear.
Vicky: Well, I want him to be a free spirit, someone who doesn't have to play by the rules, someone who's not afraid of a change.
Jamie: Sounds like you're pretty positive about what you want.
Vicky: Oh, yeah, very --
Adam: Well -- ahem. I was going to come by and give you guys a little help, but I see my cousin has things well in hand.
Amanda: Mom, I didn't know you were home.
Rachel: Amanda, is your headache worse?
Amanda: No. I'm not sick.
Rachel: Then what is it?
Amanda: I can't tell you.
Rachel: Why not?
Amanda: Because you'll never forgive me.
Rachel: Amanda, look at me. I'm your mother. I'll always love you no matter what you tell me. You have to understand that.
Amanda: Things are never going to be the same, Mom.
