Cass: Hey, what is all this?

Nicole: Oh, it's some of the furniture that Donna and I ordered.

Cass: Not bad.

Nicole: Not bad? It's elegant, classy, and romantic.

Cass: Oh, excuse me. No, the place is really starting to shape up.

Nicole: Well, I told you that Donna and I could do better than any decorators you could hire.

Cass: This is a great repro. This looks exactly like a regency chair.

Nicole: Yeah, it is a regency chair.

Cass: A real one?

Nicole: Mm-hmm. Wait till you see the one that goes with it.

Cass: You -- you have two of them?

Nicole: You know, we couldn't believe our luck.

Cass: Nicole, these things cost a fortune.

Nicole: Oh, we got a deal, you know, because we bought a chaise, too. It's 18th century.

Cass: How much did all of this cost?

Nicole: Well, you know, Cass, it's a good investment, and it's a business deduction.

Cass: How much?

Nicole: The bill is on the mantle.

Cass: This isn't the bill.

Nicole: Yes, it is.

Cass: No, Nicole, this is the federal budget deficit, and I'm not paying it.

Nicole: Well, what do you expect me to do? Send it all back?

Cass: Precisely.

Scott: Ok, here we go.

Cheryl: Mama, Dawn is going to love this.

Julie Ann: Here we go.

Mary: I always say there's nothing like a lot of presents to make a person feel better.

Felicia: Well, I hope there's room for two more.

Cheryl: Hi, Felicia.

Scott: Mom, this is just a great idea. This is going to cheer her up. I know it is.

Chad: Have you talked to Dawn yet this morning, Scott?

Scott: Yeah, I was over there earlier.

Chad: How's she doing?

Scott: Physically, she's doing a lot better, but she's kind of depressed.

Mary: Well, we're going to bring her a whole lot of holiday cheer, right?

Ada: Heads up, heads up. Now, do not -- do not drop it, ok? It's precious cargo.

Felicia: Ah.

Cheryl: Chocolate cake. Oh, that's Dawn's favorite.

Ada: Get out of it!

Julie Ann: I hope it makes her feel better.

Felicia: I'm sure it will. Come on, guys, let's go. I'll grab this.

Ada: Have fun.

Cheryl: Ok. Bye.

Ada: Bye.

Chad: See you.

Mary: I know it's hard, sweetie.

Scott: I mean, you know, I try to pretend I'm happy for her sake, and she tries to pretend she's happy for mine, and it's like the whole time we know that --

Mary: It's ok. You guys just keep loving each other. That's what matters.

Scott: Yeah.

Mary: Come on, let's go. Is this all you have? Your jacket?

Scott: Yeah, that's it.

Mary: And your scarf?

Amanda: Oh -- where's --

[Amanda types]

Liz: What are you working on so furiously?

Amanda: Oh, an article for Nicole love's -- opening of her salon.

Liz: Oh. Having trouble?

Amanda: No.

Liz: Oh.

Amanda: This is awful. I'll never be a writer.

Sam: Is there anything I can help you with?

Amanda: I -- I didn't even hear you come in.

Sam: Well, you were concentrating. What are you doing?

Amanda: Writing an article on Nicole love's -- opening of her new salon.

Sam: Really?

Amanda: Mm-hmm. Oh, no, don't.

Sam: Come on, let me see it.

Amanda: It's awful.

Sam: Sounds ok to me.

Amanda: Ok isn't good enough. This has to be perfect.

Sam: Come on, nothing's perfect.

Amanda: No. But I'm going to try to make sure that this is.

Sam: Why don't you try a different approach here.

Amanda: Where?

Sam: Well, your lead sentence. It needs to say a little bit more.

Amanda: Thanks. I feel much better now.

Sam: No, about Nicole Love, what makes her different from other designers. You got it basically, but you just need to do a little bit more editing.

Amanda: Little bit more? Look at this. I've already gone through three trees, and I'm only on the first paragraph.

Sam: Ok, ok, just don't be so hard on yourself.

Amanda: I've never done this before. I just thought it was going to be easier.

Sam: Can I help?

Amanda: No, I want to do it alone. Well, look, I've -- I've done layout on enough articles that I know how to compose a good one. Besides, I --

Amanda: Besides, what?

Sam: Well, I won a contest for a composition once.

Amanda: Really?

Sam: Yeah. Sixth grade -- "how I spent My summer vacation." Well, it's something, isn't it?

Amanda: Ok, Ernest Hemingway, what do you suggest?

Sam: Well, we've got to get together and read this, and then maybe --

Amanda: Oh, hi, aunt Liz. Anything I can do for you?

Liz: Why don't you just go on with what you're doing.

Sam: Listen, I don't like to work in crowds. Why don't we go to the park and get something to eat.

Amanda: Ok, on one condition.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: That you buy me a hotdog down at the skating shack.

Sam: You got it.

Amanda: Ok.

Liz: Amanda?

Amanda: Hmm?

Liz: You said you had work to do.

Amanda: Tell dad that I'll finish it up at home, ok?

Liz: Of course.

Rachel: Hello.

Amanda: Oh, hi, mom.

Sam: Hi, Mrs. Cory.

Rachel: Well, where are you two off to?

Amanda: Sam has some great ideas for my article.

Rachel: Good. Well, have fun.

Rachel: Maybe there's hope.

Liz: If you think so.

Mac: You can have it on My desk today? That's great. I'm looking forward to seeing it. Thank you. That was market research. They've got the results on the new cover.

Rachel: Oh, I wonder how Sam's cover tested.

Mac: Me, too. Is he down in layout?

Rachel: He was. He just left with Amanda.

Mac: What? To go where?

Liz: He said to help her with her article.

Rachel: I think it's very thoughtful of him.

Liz: It would be much more thoughtful of him if he'd marry her.

Mac: Now, Liz --

Liz: Don't "now, Liz" me. I know she's pregnant.

Rachel: I had to tell her.

Liz: Well, thank goodness she did. Someone has to make sure that Sam Fowler is responsible.

Mac: She has her family, Liz.

Liz: She ought to have a husband.

Mac: Well, the main thing is that we all stand by her.

Liz: Well, sure. Of course I will. Poor thing. I could just wring Sam Fowler's neck.

Mac: I wish you would.

Rachel: I think he really cares for Amanda.

Mac: Why? Because he sent her a painting for Christmas? Big deal.

Rachel: He asked her to marry him.

Mac: Yes, with just the right hint of insincerity so he could be sure that she would turn him down.

Rachel: Mac, we don't know that.

Mac: Well, anyway, it's not going to happen.

Rachel: We don't know that, either. They're together now, aren't they?

Mac: I'm not sure that's a help to Amanda. Might make things worse.

Nicole: I am not going to take anything back, Cass.

Cass: You paid full price for all of this stuff. You didn't even get it for dealer cost.

Nicole: Donna and I got the best deal we could.

Cass: Oh, great -- Donna. I'll bet she really knows how to haggle.

Nicole: Look, we spent all day shopping around looking around for the best prices.

Cass: $800 for a footstool.

Nicole: Well, they're remarkable.

Cass: Yeah, whose feet were they built for, Paul Bunyan's?

Nicole: They're wonderful conversation pieces.

Cass: Talk is supposed to be cheap.

Nicole: Only your kind of talk.

Cass: Yeah, well, I wouldn't have been duped into paying $18,000 for the desk. You paid $18,000 for this desk? It doesn't even have a file drawer!

Nicole: It's a genuine Louis xiv!

Cass: You could have bought all 14 Louises for this price.

Nicole: I suppose you could have done better.

Cass: Count on it! See, I know this guy --

Nicole: Oh, yeah, this guy? Al the antique dealer?

Cass: You know him, too?

Nicole: I was being sarcastic.

Cass: Al could have gotten -- he could have gotten a great deal for us on all this stuff.

Nicole: Look, I don't buy antiques that fall off the back of the truck. Call me old-fashioned.

Cass: Wallingford knows a guy who could have knocked this table off for 500 bucks.

Nicole: And you do mean "knock off."

Cass: Nicole, doesn't 18 grand for this table strike you as being just a little extravagant?

Nicole: No. What strikes me is that we had a deal. You take care of business, I take care of anything creative.

Cass: Ok, all of this cost money, didn't it?

Nicole: Yes, but --

Cass: My money, which is business, which is my territory. Am I right, or am I right?

Nicole: Buying furniture is a creative decision.

Cass: How can you say that?

Nicole: It takes a creative mind to create a certain ambience. That's what all this is about.

Cass: We're here to sell clothing, not ambience.

Nicole: To do that, you have to get the customer in a certain frame of mind.

Cass: Oh, a glass of wine could do the trick.

Nicole: I suppose you'll want to buy it by the gallon.

Cass: Look, the place needs fixing up. I agree with that.

Nicole: Fixing up costs money.

Cass: Not this much money.

Nicole: What do you want, Cass? Some bullfighting posters and a lava lamp?

Cass: I want it not to cost 40,000 bucks.

Nicole: Well, it would have cost twice that much if you'd hired that Luigi guy you wanted.

Cass: No, for me, Luigi works cheap.

Nicole: Oh, that's what they all say when they get out of prison.

Cass: The bottom line here is that this stuff all costs money, money is business, and we agreed that I would handle the business.

Nicole: Wait a minute. You can't cut me out of it completely.

Cass: We made a deal, Nicole.

Nicole: Decorating is creative.

Cass: And spending money is business.

Nicole: Well, this is creative, I'm sorry.

Cass: No, this is business.

Nicole: It is creative, Cass.

Mitch: Ahem. Am I interrupting?

Nicole: No, Mitch. What are you doing -- the shoot.

Mitch: Are we still on or not?

Cass and Nicole: Yes.

Nicole: That's creative.

Cass: It's business.

Mitch: Where would you like for me to start shooting?

Nicole: Through the heart.

Mitch: Excuse me?

Cass: Upstairs, Mitch.

Nicole: No, right here by the fireplace.

Cass: Oh, come on!

Nicole: No! Look, announcing the salon opening is a creative decision. Now, Mitch, I'd like you to take some shots around all this outrageously expensive furniture.

Mitch: You've got it.

Nicole: By the way, I need to ask something of the business department.

Cass: Can't wait. What is it?

Nicole: I want to put a cappuccino bar in the dining room.

Cass: Oh, I didn't know Louis xiv had cappuccino bars.

Nicole: It won't be expensive, Cass.

Cass: Is it your idea?

Nicole: Yeah.

Cass: It'll be expensive.

Nicole: Look, John Hudson does carpentry work. I'm sure he'll give us a good deal. Cappuccino is cheaper than wine.

Cass: It depends on the wine. Just make sure we get an estimate first, ok?

Nicole: Ok. I'll call him right now.

Woman: Mr. Winthrop?

Cass: Yes, that's me.

Woman: We have only talked on the phone. I'm Anna Linka.

Cass: Of course you are. Hello.

Anna: It's wonderful to meet you. I can hardly wait to model for you.

John: Hello? Hello?

[Dawn hums]

Dawn: What is the point?

Scott: You want to hold down the noise in here?

Dawn: Scott.

Scott: Hey, how's the most beautiful woman in bay city?

Dawn: Well --

Scott: Not so good, eh?

Dawn: I'm ok.

Scott: Were you working?

Dawn: Yeah, a little bit.

Scott: You want me to go away?

Dawn: Don't you dare.

Scott: Oh, feeling a little lonely, are we?

Dawn: No, I have got two interns and an orderly stashed under the bed as we speak.

Scott: Well, in that case, they can just come to the party.

Dawn: What party?

Scott: Party time!

Dawn: What are you doing?

Mary: Happy new year!

Julie Ann: Merry Christmas.

Chad: Merry Christmas, sweetheart.

Mary: You couldn't come to the party, so we brought the party to you.

Cheryl: Look at this chocolate cake.

Dawn: Oh, chocolate cake is my favorite thing.

Julie Ann: Scott told us.

Dawn: Oh, this is wonderful!

Mary: Well, we missed you so much on Christmas.

Dawn: Scott told me you went to st. Elm's for Christmas.

Mary: Yeah.

Dawn: It sounded really nice.

Mary: It wasn't the same without you.

Felicia: And everybody at tops has been asking when you're going to start singing again.

Dawn: I don't know about singing.

Felicia: Oh, come on, of course you are.

Dawn: But I'm working on a song.

Felicia: Oh, that's terrific.

Dawn: You want to hear the best news of the day?

Mary: Yes.

Dawn: I can go home today.

Scott: That's great! That's wonderful!

Dawn: They said that I can do that as long as my temperature stays normal.

Chad: oh, how wonderful

Mary: Oh, I'm so happy for you.

Dawn: So you want to be my date on new year's eve?

Sam: I'm freezing .

Amanda: How can you be cold? You have hot chocolate and a hotdog.

Sam: Well, you had me take off my gloves to read the article.

Amanda: Yeah, well, you kept dropping it, that's why. So? What did you think?

Sam: It was good.

Amanda: That's not what I wanted to hear.

Sam: All right, so it's not going to win a Pulitzer prize.

Amanda: That's what I wanted to hear.

Sam: What, putdowns?

Amanda: Criticism, constructive criticism.

Sam: Really?

Amanda: Really. How else am I going to learn?

Sam: Ok. Cass and Nicole -- they come off pretty interesting.

Amanda: Yeah?

Sam: But you need to know more about them.

Amanda: How do you mean?

Sam: Who they are. How they think. How they became who they are.

Amanda: You think I should dig deeper?

Sam: Well, yeah. You should put down the article with the feeling that you really know these two people.

Amanda: I don't know if I can do that.

Sam: You can try on me.

Amanda: You want me to interview you?

Sam: No, you.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Sam: I really don't know that much about you -- Amanda, not Mandy

Amanda: Do you want to?

Sam: Yeah. I want to know all about you. Everything.

Amanda: I guess I never realized how much of a stranger I must seem to you .

Sam: Yeah, it's pretty funny, considering --

Amanda: Yeah. So, the inside scoop on Amanda Cory. I'm the daughter of Mac and Rachel, Cory.

Sam: No, I want new information.

Amanda: Like what?

Sam: Well, your childhood, where you went to school.

Amanda: I went to boarding school.

Sam: You didn't live at home?

Amanda: No, I came home on holidays and summer.

Sam: That must have been weird.

Amanda: Actually, I liked it. My parents had some tough times, on and off.

Sam: Well, how do you mean?

Amanda: Well, personally. They got divorced.

Sam: Really?

Amanda: But it all worked out. Anyway, I did really great at school, made it through my rebellious years, even got to study for a year in Switzerland .

Sam: Switzerland? Oh.

Amanda: For your information, I liked it. Loved it, in fact. I speak fluent French and a smattering of German and Italian .

Sam: Well, it really doesn't sound like a great childhood.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Sam: I mean being shipped off to boarding school, never seeing your family?

Amanda: I wasn't exactly shipped off. And I think it's pretty obvious how close my family is.

Sam: Oh, come on. I mean, still, it doesn't --

Amanda: Still -- oh, yeah, ok, come on. Stop being this reverse snob. Anyway, there was another side to my life -- My grandmother Ada . We used to always hang out together and make fudge and cookies and all the stuff that you usually do with a Grandma.

Sam: Oh, you mean the stuff that kids that were poor usually did with their Grandma.

Amanda: I think I turned out rather well.

Sam: Hey, I'm not saying you didn't.

Amanda: There's nothing wrong -- there's nothing wrong with having money.

Sam: It's not the money I'm talking about. It's the values.

Amanda: You don't think I have values ?

Sam: No, I -- I just wonder that if you'd been brought up different, maybe you wouldn't have pulled that Mandy stunt.

Amanda: I made a mistake. Poor kids can do that, too. I learned a lesson. I'll never lie to anyone that I care about again .

Sam: So, the ice looks great, doesn't it?

Amanda: I haven't skated in a couple years.

Sam: Well, hey, I -- I don't have to be back for quite a while. I mean, I'm just hanging around till I find about the new cover. You want to try it?

Amanda: Sure.

Sam: Oh, the baby -- we can't.

Amanda: Oh, no, the doctor said it's ok. I can keep doing exercise that I'm used to doing .

Sam: Let's go rent some skates.

Amanda: All right.

Nicole: she's all wrong .

Cass: Oh, she's a little more exotic than I expected.

Nicole: A little exotic? She makes Tammy Faye Bakker look dull be comparison.

Cass: Oh, come on. Once she has your outfits on --

Nicole: No, she's just -- she's not the image I'm trying to convey.

Cass: She's a big name.

Nicole: Yeah, I'll bet she's a big name. She doesn't look anything like her head shot.

Cass: She'll do fine. She will.

Nicole: Why can't you just admit that you made a mistake?

Cass: Me? We picked her out together.

Nicole: Well, then, I'm unpicking her. Now, why don't you just go over there and tell her that we'll pay her for the hour and send her home.

Anna: Mr. Winthrop?

Cass: Oh, please, call me Cass.

Anna: Cass. You Americans are so friendly, so different from Bratislava.

Nicole: Tell her.

Cass: So, you're from Bratislava? Oh.

Anna: Yes, come here with my poor old mother. I hardly speak any English.

Cass: Oh.

Nicole: Bratislava, my foot. She comes from the Bronx by way of Berlitz

Anna: I was discovered on a beach in Rio.

Cass: Oh.

Nicole: Oh. I somehow doubt it was on a beach.

John: Ahem,

Nicole: Oh, John. Oh, good, I'm glad you could make it.

John: Hi, Nic Look, before we start anything, I think it's important for you to know that I have never even been in a cappuccino bar, much less tried to build one.

Anna: Hello. I'm Anna Linka

John: John.

Anna: John. How unusual.

Nicole: Mr. Winthrop has something to tell you. Can you do it?

John: Well, why not? It would be a challenge.

Cass: If you're talking about the bar, we're on a very tight budget.

Nicole: Oh, no, don't you worry about it.

Cass: No, no. We're not going to go overboard on this the way we have on some things I could mention

Nicole: Did you get rid of her?

Cass: Hey, come on, now. We have to pay her for eight hours anyway, no matter what.

Nicole: And just how much is the bimbo of Bratislava costing us?

Cass: A little respect, please. She's worth every penny.

Nicole: A penny is about all she's worth.

John: Maybe I should come back.

Nicole: No, you can use whatever materials you need, John You'll do fine.

Cass: We have to talk about this.

Nicole: Oh, no, no, no. This company is not going to suffer because the great Cass Winthrop can't admit that he's wrong.

Cass: Who are you calling now?

Nicole: Picking out models is a creative decision. That's my territory.

Mac: And then what did Jason say ?

Rachel: He made it very clear that he wants the farm.

Mac: What about Jamie ?

Rachel: Jamie's always loved that place, Mac And Lisa Likes It, too .

Mac: He seemed very uncertain about it all to me.

Rachel: I think we should go for it.

Mac: I'll tell you, those frames, they have an uncanny knack of popping up just when you don't need them.

Liz: When do we need them ? Sorry, I overheard .

Mac: So, what else is new, Liz ?

Liz: If you ask me, Mac -- ?

Rachel is this for Mac ?

Liz: Oh, yes. It's the market research reports on sample covers.

Mac: Well, now we're going to find out just how good Sam really is.

Rachel: What does it say, Mac ?

Sam: You're doing that wrong.

Amanda: I am not!

Sam: It's supposed to be tighter. Here, let me do that. There.

Amanda: Oh, you do this like an expert.

Sam: Well, I guess you had people tie your laces, huh?

Amanda: Yeah, and then I sent them back down to the servants' dungeon.

Sam: Sorry.

Amanda: For your information, I learned how to skate on a pond near my grandmother's house.

Sam: Oh, not on a private pond in Saint Moritz?

Amanda: No, but I did have 14-karat gold skates.

Sam: Oh, you --

[Amanda laughs]

Sam: All right, onto the ice. Come on.

Amanda: It's been so long since I've skated. Hope I don't --

Sam: Ooh !

Amanda: I'm ok. Don't worry.

Sam: Oh, I'm sorry. Skating was such a stupid idea.

Amanda: No, no, it was a nice idea. I just should have known better.

Sam: Are you sure you're all right?

Amanda: Would you stop? I guess ice skating is out for this winter.

Sam: What about other exercise? The doctor said that you could --

Amanda :Yeah, I know. Well, just as long as I'm used to it. I wouldn't want to fall.

Sam: No, I wouldn't want that, either.

Amanda: I still can't get used to the fact that I'm pregnant.

Sam: Yeah, we're both going to have to start thinking about that a little more often.

Amanda: I guess it won't be that long when I won't have to be reminded at all.

Sam: No.

Amanda: It's strange, you know, thinking about someone, someone I don't even know -- yet.

Sam: How does that feel? I mean, do you feel different at all?

Amanda: Um -- a little nauseated and tired. It's kind of like the flu.

Sam: I guess the changes are going to get bigger later on.

Amanda: Yeah, and so will I. There's going to be a whole baby in there.

Sam: Our baby. We're going to be parents. Let's get these skates off.

Ada: Thank you . Ok, ladies.

Cheryl: Hey, Ada .

Ada: Hey. How did the party go?

Cheryl: Terrific. She was so surprised.

Ada: How does she feel?

Mary: She seemed to be a lot better.

Chad: Jamie thinks she can come home this afternoon.

Ada: Oh, that's wonderful.

Felicia: I hope she can come to tops tonight for new year's eve. That would be nice.

Chad: Yeah, I hope so, too. Hey, I want to thank everybody for what you all are doing.

Felicia: Listen, you know, I booked a wonderful surprise singer for tonight. I know that Dawn would love to meet her.

Chad: Oh, I'm sure she would.

Felicia: Yeah.

Julie Ann: I hope I have a date.

Mary: Why do you need a date? I don't have a date. We're just all going to be together.

Ada: I forgot. Nicole called and she wants you to call her right away. It's urgent.

Cheryl: Oh, ok.

Felicia: Ada, do you think I could get a little coffee ?

Ada: Be my guest.

Felicia: Thank you so much. Mary, want some coffee?

Mary: No, thanks.

Felicia: What's this business about not having a date for new year's eve?

Mary: Why do I need a date ? Everybody's going to be there.

Felicia: What about Vince ?

Mary: What about him?

Felicia: You do know him.

Mary: I'm not going to ask Vince.

Felicia: Why? You're on speaking terms.

Mary: He probably has other plans.

Felicia: Well, I don't think it would hurt to ask him.

Mary: I do. I think it would be awkward and last-minute and -- anyway --

Felicia: Anyway --

Mary: So --

Felicia :Mm-hmm?

Mary: What are you and Mitch going to be doing?

Felicia: We'll be at tops.

Mary: Oh, good. You got any special plans?

Felicia: Uh-uh. I don't think so.

Mary: What?

Felicia: Nothing.

Mary: Felicia.

Felicia: Well, it's -- it's just that Mitch has been talking about settling down.

[Mary gasps]

Mary : He proposed ?

Felicia: No, no, no. I mean, not in so many words. It's just that lately he's been talking about getting a home.

Mary: That's a preamble to a proposal if I ever heard one.

Felicia: Maybe.

Mary: And that's the most underwhelmed response I've ever heard.

Felicia: I'm crazy about Mitch . You know that.

Mary: But? You don't think he's the marrying kind?

Felicia: I don't think I'm the marrying kind. At least not anymore.

Cheryl: Come, on let's go .

Julie Ann: Where are we going?

Cheryl: Get your coat. Nicole needs us, come on.

Julie Ann: See you later.

Cheryl: I'll explain in the car, ok?

Mitch: I'm just checking the lighting. You don't have to do a thing.

Anna: I am feeling the mood.

Nicole: I am feeling sick.

Cass: Oh, come on. Anna Linka, honey, maybe if you tried to relax a little, you know?

Anna: Ooh, what strong hands you have.

Cass: Thank you. Um -- yeah. Is that position more comfortable?

Anna: Yes, it's a very nice position.

Cass: Mitch, you want to take it from here?

Mitch: Sure, why not? Thank you.

Nicole: Mr. Winthrop?

Cass: What?

Nicole: I don't care how much we have to pay, she has got to go.

Cass: Give her a chance to relax.

Nicole: She's been relaxing all over you since she got here.

Cass: That's understandable. She finds me attractive.

Nicole: Look, Cass, my clothes are about elegance and style, feminine mystique. She's about as mysterious as a bulldozer.

Cass: The photographs will look great.

Nicole: Look, this picture has got to represent the love with Love salon here . I -- this bimbo looks like she's advertising for a massage parlor.

Cass: Don't you want your designs to be noticed?

Nicole: Noticed, yes, but not laughed at. The love with Love salon has got to represent a truly American style --

Cass :Oh, by the way, no more "love with love."

Nicole: What?

Cass: You remember the plaque I got you for Christmas ?

Nicole: Yeah, but I thought that --

Cass: I ordered business cards, too. It's all going to read, "Nicole Love ."

Nicole: But love with love is what I started -- .

Cass : It's too cute . It's very cutesy-pootsy. You know, "Nicole Love". It's simpler, it's classier.

Nicole: You had no right doing this without consulting me.

Cass: Nicole, it's a marketing decision. That's my territory.

Nicole: My name is my territory.

Cass: Oh, this is ridiculous.

Nicole: No, Cass, this is war.

Cass: You are causing a scene.

Nicole: You started it.

Cass: Ok, we're going to settle this once and for all.

Nicole: Not until you admit that dime store Veruska was a mistake.

Cass: She came with very good references.

Nicole: Where, from Frederick's of Hollywood?

Cass: Hi. It's not going to do the business any good if we're at each other's throats all the time.

Nicole: Well, why can't you just admit that you're wrong? Everything is pretense with you.

Cass: Me? What about the pretense you made at Christmans ? All those parties you claimed you had to go to.

Nicole: All those people you claimed you had to see. You were sitting here all alone.

Cass: So were you. Why are we arguing?

Nicole: Because you're trying to do everything.

Cass: This company means a lot to me. It's all I've got right now .

Nicole: Me, too. Now, it's my name on those designs, Cass. I won't have that face associated with it.

Cass: Shh.

Cheryl: Relax.

Nicole: Hi.

Cheryl: Hi.

Nicole: Oh, good, you're just in time. Ok, Anna Karenina, the party's over.

Anna: Anna Linka

Nicole: Whatever. Just get out of that dress.

Anna: What? What do you take me for?

Nicole: Not much.

Anna: Huh. Well!

Nicole: Now, look, the dresses are in the next room, and I've got one in there for you, too.

Julie Ann: I'm going to be modeling? But I have to get back to work.

Nicole: Well, I took care of all that. Go on now, ok?

Cheryl: Ok.

Nicole: Thanks.

Cass: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. What's going on here?

Nicole: Well, I wanted two girls that were right, and so I got them.

Cass: What about Anna Linka ? I hired her.

Nicole: I fired her. And that's a creative decision.

[Dawn hums].

Dawn: Not bad .

Scott: You know what I had to go through to get this real glass? Rambo the nurse.

Dawn: You are my hero. I am so thirsty.

Scott: Yeah, no wonder, after -- look at this. Look at all the chocolate cake you stuffed your face with.

Dawn: What, what? I was just trying to be polite.

Scott: Oh, sure you were.

Dawn: You know, it was really sweet of everyone to come here today.

Scott: Well, everyone loves you. Everyone.

Dawn: Oh, I feel so stupid for running away.

Scott: You were scared.

Dawn: You know, I never felt so alone in all my life.

Scott: Well, you don't still feel that way, do you?

Dawn: No, because you're here.

Scott: Ok.

Dawn: You know, I feel so good all of a sudden. And sometimes I get the feeling that I can really beat this disease.

Scott: You look really pretty. How's the song coming along?

Dawn: Oh --

Scott; Hmm ?

Dawn: It's finished.

Scott: Can I take a look at it?

Dawn: It's not exactly perfect. But it's called "Waverly Place." And it's where I used to live when I was in New York ?

Scott: I'm not so great at reading music, but these lyrics are really, really beautiful, Dawn .

Dawn: You don't think it's too corny or anything?

Scott: No, no. Can I take this for a while?

Dawn: What? What are you going to do?

Scott: I'll explain it to you later. Is it ok?

Dawn: Sure. What --

Scott: Ok, great. I'll be back for you in a few hours, all right?

Dawn: Yeah. What are you doing?

Scott: Dawn, I promise you, people will hear this music.

[Music plays]

Rachel: Mac, don't keep me in suspense.

Rachel: how Sam's cover test ?

Mac: Read it for yourself.

Rachel: I knew it.

Liz: Mac.

Mac: Yes, Liz?

Liz: Publicity department keeps calling. They want to know if you've made a decision on a cover.

Mac: I have to do what's best for the magazine.

Rachel: I think it's very clear.

Mac: Yes, it is.

Liz: Sam Fowler's cover is a flop.

Mac: On the contrary, it tested very high.

Rachel: In all demographic groups right across the board.

Liz: May I see?

Mac: Sam's cover will be implemented, starting with the march issue.

Liz: I'll tell publicity.

Mac: Oh, no, don't.

Rachel: Why not?

Mac: I want to save it for a surprise. I'll announce it tonight at the "brava" new year's eve party.

Rachel: Oh, Sam will be thrilled.

Liz: Whatever you want. I just wish you were announcing an engagement.

Sam: Look, I can only -- I got to go.

Amanda: No, come on. Stay for a little while, at least. I got the painting you made for me framed.

Sam: You did?

Amanda: Yeah. You want to see it?

Sam: Well -- only for a minute, ok? So, what's the table for?

Amanda: Well, tonight's the new year's party for "brava." Didn't you get your invitation?

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: I'd like it if you'd come. We all would. I had this done yesterday. What do you think?

Sam: That's great. That frame is terrific.

Amanda: I picked it out myself.

Sam: Must have cost a fortune.

Amanda: The painting is very important to me. I'm -- I'm glad we had a chance to talk.

Sam: Yeah, me, too.

Amanda: I hope I didn't bore you with all my childhood -- boarding school and all that.

Sam: No, not at all. I think I know you a little bit better now.

Amanda: You know, in a lot of ways, I don't think we're all that different.

Sam: Maybe. I don't think I've seen so many Christmas presents under a Christmas tree before.

Amanda: Well, we are a big family.

Sam: Yeah.

Matthew: Look what just came in the mail. Hi, Sam.

Sam: How you doing, Matthew?

Amanda: This is a great computer.

Matthew: Great? It's amazing! Anybody would kill for this.

Sam: Did you buy this yourself?

Matthew: What, are you kidding? This thing cost a bundle. Mac bought it for me.

Sam: Right.

Matthew: It's got all kinds of software, too. Got to show this to Billy. He'll freak!

Amanda: What are you thinking?

Sam: I'm thinking that I don't want my kid to grow up like a spoiled brat.

Amanda: Matthew is not a spoiled brat.

Sam: Amanda, that's a $5,000 computer.

Amanda: He happens to be very interested in computers.

Sam: Great, so just buy him the best, huh?

Amanda: Why not?

Sam: He's just 15 years old.

Amanda: Do you want me to apologize for having money?

Sam: No, I want you to understand my point of view.

Amanda: From what I can see, your point of view is rather narrow.

Sam: Mine is narrow? You're the one who's got this cockeyed idea that we're not different. Amanda, just look around you. Look around you!

Amanda: I like what I see.

Sam: Because it's your world, not mine.

Amanda: Don't you want to be successful, make money painting?

Sam: Money is not the issue, values are.

Amanda: So you're saying I never learned values?

Sam: Not just you, your family, the way you're raised.

Amanda: I see nothing wrong with that.

Sam: That's where we're different, Amanda, because I do. Look at Matthew. He's 15 years old, and he's got no idea of what it means to work for something.

Amanda: You have no right to say that. You don't even know Matthew.

Sam: Well, I know he'd be a lot different if Mitch had brought him up.

Amanda: Well, Mitch took care of that, didn't he? I happen to think that Matthew is a great kid.

Sam: The point is, I don't want my child brought up like this.

Amanda: I'm having this baby.

Sam: And I am its father, and I plan on having a say in how it's brought up.

Amanda: I never said that you couldn't. We both want the best for this baby. Why are we fighting?

Sam: Because no matter how hard you try to deny it, Amanda, we're different. And no amount of money is going to ever change that.

Amanda: Sam -- Sam, am I going to see you tonight? Sam?

Scott: Hey, you guys.

Felicia: Hi.

Scott: I have something I want to show you.

Mary: How's Dawn?

Scott: She's great. She wrote the most beautiful song.

Felicia: Really?

Chad: Dawn wrote this?

Scott: Yeah.

Felicia: Oh, the lyrics are lovely, Chad.

Chad: The melody looks great, too.

Scott: Listen, I'm bringing her home from the hospital a little bit later, and I was wondering if you guys could do me a favor.

Chad: Sure.

Scott: I would love for her to hear this song at tops tonight for the new year's eve party.

Mary: Oh, what a wonderful idea.

Chad: Hey, did you even have to ask?

Felicia: You know, I do have that surprise singer coming tonight, and I know she would love to do this song. I'll ask her.

Scott: That would be great. I really want to do something special for her tonight.

Mary: You see? It's going to be a good new year's eve.

John: The shoot over already?

Anna: It's over forever.

John: Maybe I could take those measurements now.

Nicole: Oh, good.

Cass: We need an estimate first, of course.

Nicole: Yeah, I was aware of that.

John: Listen, you guys going to tops tonight? I understand Felicia throws quite a bash.

Nicole: I'd love to, but I've got so many invitations, so I don't know.

Cass: I might end up there, but it would be way after midnight.

Nicole: Oh. You watching the late show?

Cass: I am the late show, honey.

Nicole: You're all talk, Winthrop.

Cass: Is that so? Anna Linka, darling, come here for a second, would you, please?

Anna: Yes?

Cass: How would you like to ring in the new year with me this evening?

Anna: I would love to, darling.

Cass: Oh. Is 10:00 too soon?

Anna: We have dinner first?

Cass: Why not? Just you and me, all right?

Anna: Ok.

Julie Ann: Hey, how do we look?

[John whistles]

Nicole: It looks great. I love it.

Cheryl: What do you want me to do with this thing here? I wasn't sure.

Nicole: Over your shoulder.

Anna: I'm so sorry I won't see you at the tops, darling.

Nicole: Oh, I'll be there.

Cass: Ciao. Tonight.

Anna: Ok.

John: Nic.

Nicole: Yeah?

John: You need an escort?

Nicole: What?

John: Well, I know you've had lots of other invitations, but if you decide that you want to go out at the last minute --

Cass: Oh, she couldn't possibly. She's had so many invitations.

Nicole: I'd love to, John. Thank you for asking.

John: There you go.

Nicole: Then I'll see you later.

John: Ok.

Nicole: Ok. Come on, girls, let's get going here. In front of the fireplace.

Julie Ann: Ok.

Nicole: All right. Cheryl, Julie Ann, right next to each other. You can play around with this, all right?

Cheryl: Ok.

Nicole: What, Mitch?

Mitch: Here's an idea.

Nicole: Yeah?

Mitch: You in the middle.

Nicole: Me?

Mitch: It's your salon, isn't it?

Nicole: Yes, it's my salon, but --

Mitch: In the chair.

Nicole: In the chair?

Mitch: Yes.

Nicole: Ok. All right. Do I look all right? Is this ok?

Mitch: This is elegance.

Nicole: That's right. That's us, right, ladies?

Cheryl: That's us.

Julie Ann: Right.

Mitch: Here we go. Smile. Very nice. Thank you. Very nice. Thank you. Big smile. There you go. Wild and wacky world. All right.
