Felicia: Excited? I'm berserk. Yes, I have three hours to make all these phone calls and pack and get to the airport. No. What? No. No, no, I am looking in the drawer, Cass. No, I don't have the papers that I'm supposed to give to Jacques and the fashion people. But wait a minute. Oh, here they are. Ok, I've got them. Ok, relax, I've got them. Yeah, what? No. Really? You want me to -- well, honey, I don't know. Right. Monaco? Well, yeah, ok. I can do it. Yeah, I just wish you'd given me a little more time.

Mitch: To what?

Felicia: I can handle this. Yes, would you stop worrying about it? Right, no, I'll be fine. Yeah, I'll call you when I get there. Right. Bye-bye.

Mitch: Get where?

Felicia: Paris. I'm flying there today.

Vince: Hey, Jason. I didn't see you come in.

Jason: I hope that coffee's hot because that's a cold wind out there, Vinny.

Vince: Coffee? That's it? How do we make a living on coffee?

Jason: I'd like a short stack, but I don't know if I got time. Tell you what, I'm going to make a call and let you know.

Vince: I'll get you a coffee.

Jason: All right.

[Phone rings]

Reginald: Yes?

Jason: Reginald. Jason Frame.

Reginald: What do you want?

Jason: I think it's time we had another one of our little business meetings.

Reginald: Do you?

Jason: Hey, we can kick around the partnership agreement we were talking about the other day.

Reginald: I did some checking.

Jason: And?

Reginald: I've discovered that you were on furlough during the time my house burned.

Jason: That's right. I was there.

Reginald: Then perhaps we do have things to discuss.

Jason: Good. I'll be right over.

Reginald: No. I'm tied up until 11:00. Come by my suite then.

Jason: Then I'll see you at 11:00. Vinny, I'll take that short stack.

Vince: Oh, that puts us in the black. Hey, how's the farm coming? You got your mortgage?

Jason: Couple of weeks, it'll be all mine.

Vince: Great.

Jason: I was just discussing my down payment.

Vince: Congratulations. I'll see about the short stack.

Jason: Thanks.

Jason: Scott.

Scott: Yeah. Do I know you?

Jason: Jason Frame. I'm a friend of your mom's.

Scott: Oh, I don't think she ever mentioned you before.

Jason: Well, it goes back a number of years. Can you do me a favor and tell me which door is your mom's?

Scott: Why is that?

Jason: Well, I wanted to leave her something and slip it under the door.

Scott: Yeah, it's up the hall on the right, first door.

Jason: First door, thanks.

Scott: Yeah. Vince, how's it going?

Vince: Hey, how are you doing, Scott?

Scott: Good. Guess what -- Dawn's going back to music school today.

Vince: So soon?

Scott: Yeah, well, she's feeling great, and Jamie says it's all right, so I'm going to drive her over right now.

Vince: Hey, look, if you're going to take her out in that, make sure she's bundled up. It's nasty.

Scott: Yeah, I know, I will. Her advisor tells her that if she studies hard, she's going to be able to graduate on time.

Vince: Whoa, don't let her push herself, though.

Scott: I know, I know. I just hope she starts feeling better after she takes this A.Z.T.

Vince: What's that, the new drug?

Scott: Right. We're going to take her over to the hospital right after school.

Dawn: No. Not today.

Dawn: Hi.

Scott: Ready?

Dawn: I'm all set to go --

Scott: Whoa --

Vince: Whoa --

John: Get the center of the post there.

Man: I got it.

Amanda: Show you my sketches.

Man: Whoa.

Nicole: Excuse us.

John: Sorry.

Nicole: I think they're over here somewhere. That would help with your story.

John: Come on.

Nicole: Oh -- I have the name somewhere. I'll have to look it up.

Amanda: Ok.

Man: Is this the way it's going to be around here?

John: Down, boy. Come on, we got a deadline.

Man: Yes, sir, general.

John: Grab those --

Cheryl: Hi, Amanda.

Amanda: Hi.

Cheryl: Are you helping address the invitations also?

Nicole: No, Amanda's writing an article on the salon.

Cheryl: Oh, really? For "Brava"?

Nicole: I -- I'm afraid I don't have anything to say about anything, though. Your story's going to be very short.

Amanda: Well, you are still going to Monaco -- the show there, aren't you?

Nicole: Well, there is still a show in Monaco, but whether I'll be a part of it is still up in the air right now.

Cheryl: You know, I could start addressing these. Is the list around?

Nicole: Yes, right here.

Cheryl: Great.

Nicole: No, most fashion houses don't have their star model addressing envelopes.

Amanda: Oh, I think it makes this kind of homey.

Nicole: Great. Well, where were we?

Amanda: Up in the air.

Nicole: Right. Well, along with everything else, there's a deadline, and I don't know if we can make it. Did you ever write a story on a natural disaster?

Sam: Amanda.

Amanda: Sam. What are you doing here?

Sam: I just came to see --

Amanda: Yes?

Sam: I came to see my brother.

Amanda: Oh.

Sam: Is he here?

Nicole: Yes. Cheryl just finished a photo session with him.

Cheryl: Hi, Sam.

Sam: Hi, Cheryl. How are you doing?

Cheryl: If you're looking for Mitch, I'd wait a couple of minutes. He's with Felicia.

Sam: Oh. So, Nicole, the place looks great.

Nicole: Yeah, it's getting there. I'll tell you what, I'll be right with you, ok?

Sam: Well, I hope my brother remembers we're supposed to have breakfast this morning.

Amanda: You weren't at work yesterday.

Sam: No, I took a sick day.

Amanda: You're not, are you? I mean, you're feeling ok, right?

Sam: Yeah, I'm fine. So, how are you feeling?

Amanda: Oh, not too bad. I get a little tired sometimes, but other than that --

Nicole: Your brother is upstairs if you need to see him, Sam.

Sam: I really don't want to bother him if, you know, he's busy.

Nicole: Maybe that's a good idea.

Sam: Why?

Nicole: They're probably talking about Paris. She must have told him.

Sam: Told him what?

Nicole: Cass asked Felicia to go to Paris today.

Mitch: So why didn't you tell me before?

Felicia: But, honey, you knew I was going.

Mitch: Yes, but not now.

Felicia: Why are you upset about this?

Mitch: Because I just don't understand why you have to go.

Felicia: Well, I have to make all the arrangements for the show. I am the producer, remember?

Mitch: How long will you be gone?

Felicia: Well, I'll be in Paris for a few days, I hope.

Mitch: And then you're coming home?

Felicia: Well, actually, no, I have to make a stop in Monaco for a few days.

Mitch: Oh, great. This is just getting better and better.

Felicia: No, no, I have to view the exhibition hall. I mean, someone has to make all those final arrangements.

Mitch: It's just that I --

Felicia: What?

Mitch: Nothing. Nothing. Send me a post card.

Felicia: No, no. No, no, Mitch, come on. No, come on. Listen, I have an idea. In fact, it's a brilliant idea, really.

Mitch: I'm late.

Felicia: Mitch, come with me. Come on.

Mitch: I have to go to work.

Felicia: No, no. You haven't taken a vacation from that place since you started, right?

Mitch: And I can't get away and I can't go on a short notice.

Felicia: Little locks along the Champs Élysées, right? Little -- little dinners, little intimate dinners in little French bistros? Wouldn't that be nice?

Mitch: Yes, that sounds very nice, but I would have to turn my life upside down to make arrangements --

Felicia: I'm not worth turning your life upside down for a little weekend in Paris? Think about it. I could make it worth your while. Come on, please? Come on.

Mitch: I'll see what I can do.

Felicia: Ooh! I knew you'd smarten up.

Mitch: What time do you leave?

Felicia: Noon.

Mitch: I'll be back by 11:00.

Felicia: Ok. Don't forget your passport. That's important.

Mitch: Nothing's definite.

Felicia: I think you should also bring your camera. You could take wonderful shots of me waving from the Eiffel Tower. Mac will love it.

Mitch: Oh, yeah, I'm sure of that.

Felicia: He will, he will. And listen, you can write the whole trip off. Think about that. I love you. Oh.

Sam: Hi.

Mitch: Sam.

Sam: We still on for breakfast?

Mitch: Yeah. Yeah, let me make some calls, and we'll do it.

Sam: Yeah.

Mitch: Bye.

Felicia: Oh, yes, Paris. I can't wait.

Vince: Let's get her on the chair.

Scott: There you go.

Jason: Vinny, what happened?

Scott: We need an ambulance.

Jason: Well, I'll call.

Vince: Use the bar phone. The number's right there. Look, I'll -- I'll get her some water.

Scott: Right, right. Dawn, honey, Dawn -- you ok?

Dawn: What? Did I faint?

Scott: Everything's -- yeah. Everything's ok.

Dawn: I feel so weak.

Scott: It's ok, I'm right here. I'm right here.

Dawn: School --

Scott: What?

Dawn: I got to go to school.

Scott: No, no, no, not today, you're not.

Dawn: Yeah, because if I don't go, I'm not going to graduate. I've got to go to school.

Scott: Dawn, Dawn, relax. Relax, don't fight me on this.

Jason: What is wrong with her? The ambulance company needs to know so they can figure out how to deal with her.

Vince: For Pete's sake, give me the thing. Look, she's an AIDS patient. Details? What kind of details? Oh, well, she's feeling faint. She's had pneumonia. Can she be transported without your help? Look, you miserable slob --

Scott: Vince, Vince, hang up on those jerks. I'll take her myself.

Vince: You guys ought to be ashamed of yourself! I don't believe that!

Scott: She's got to live with it.

Vince: Now listen, ambulance workers are supposed to help people. That's their job.

Scott: Well, most of them do. Come on, honey, put your arm around my neck.

Vince: Look, I'll call Jamie, tell him you're on the way.

Jason: Ah, gorgeous, now hold on. You got two escorts today, all right?

Dawn: Thanks.

Jason: Sure.

John: What are you doing, man?

Man: I'm just taking a break, man.

John: Not on this job. There's no drinking on this job, especially not for you.

Man: Ah, come on, man, that was Nam. I'm just a recreational drinker now. No problem.

John: Yes, there is. You drink on this job, you're fired.

That's the problem. Come on, corker, let's get back to work.

Amanda: Maybe I should talk to Felicia about the publicity campaign.

Nicole: Oh, good idea. I just can't put two thoughts together today. Is there anything else I can tell you about anything?

Amanda: Uh --

Nicole: Or try to tell you?

Amanda: No -- no, I think I have everything I need for right now.

Nicole: Ok.

Amanda: I'll just go up and talk to Felicia and then I'll be on my way back to "Brava."

Nicole: Ok. Amanda, I'm sorry if I seem a little bit flustered, but I -- it's just because I'm -- I'm -- I'm flustered. I'll see you later.

Amanda: Ok. Cheryl, can I talk to you for a minute?

Cheryl: Sure.

Amanda: I know that Julie Ann told you about the baby.

Cheryl: Yeah. I think -- forget it. Doesn't matter what I think.

Amanda: No, no, tell me.

Cheryl: Well, I like kids a lot, so I think it's terrific. Look, Amanda, I never meant to come between you and Sam.

Amanda: No. No, it was me. I came between me and Sam.

Cheryl: I'm sorry.

Amanda: So am I. Please don't tell anyone that I'm pregnant.

Cheryl: No. I wouldn't. Believe me, I wouldn't.

Amanda: At least not until I decide whether I'm going to have it or not.

Scott: Hold on a second. Jamie, Jamie, is she all right?

Jamie: As far as I know, it's just exhaustion.

Scott: Then it's not serious. I mean, she's going to work through this, right?

Chad: What happened?

Scott: We were at Mary's Place and she fainted.

Chad: Well, is it pneumonia.

Jamie: No, her lungs are clear. The Bactrim seemed to do the trick.

Chad: Well, then, what is it?

Jamie: As far as I know, it's just overexertion.

Scott: Oh, man, I knew it. I shouldn't have made such a big deal about her starting school again.

Jamie: Scott, it's not your fault.

Chad: Will she have to stay in the hospital?

Jamie: Hopefully not. She should be able to resume normal activities in a couple of days. But I want to keep her under observation.

Scott: Well, then, she should take it easy, right?

Jamie: Absolutely. Scott, I'm glad you got her here so quickly.

Scott: Yeah.

Jamie: Because something like this could be very serious if not treated immediately.

Chad: Well, why did you bring her down here yourself? Why didn't you call an ambulance?

Scott: We tried.

Jamie: They wouldn't pick her up?

Scott: It was a private company, and I didn't want to wait for the city.

Chad: What's the name of the company?

Jamie: Yeah, right.

Scott: I don't know.

Chad: They should have their license pulled. This is ridiculous.

Scott: I know it. Jamie, this really scared me. I mean, what if it happens again? How am I supposed to get her here?

Jamie: I can understand being careful, but there is no excuse for ignorance.

Jason: No, I didn't know about Scott's girlfriend.

Vince: Yeah. It's just going to get rougher and rougher, the poor kids.

Jason: They living together?

Vince: Yeah, one of the apartments upstairs. They really love each other.

Jason: I imagine Mary must help out, then.

Vince: Oh, yeah. She's there all the time now.

Jason: Are those apartments nice?

Vince: Well, the Ritz is nicer.

Jason: Have you got one that's vacant?

Vince: Why?

Jason: I'm looking for a place.

Vince: Oh, until you move into the farm.

Jason: Probably a lot longer because that place needs so much work, it's going to take I don't know how long just to get it livable.

Vince: Well, I always heard that you were mighty handy with a hammer.

Jason: Yeah, it'd take me a couple of years if I'm doing it myself.

Vince: Well, you know, you ought to talk to John Hudson.

Jason: John's in construction, too?

Vince: Yeah, he just started a business, he and a bunch of vets. They're working on Nicole Love's studio now -- fashion place.

Jason: Well, if they can handle that, I guess they can handle some old farmhouse, couldn't they?

Vince: Probably.

Jason: I will look up John first thing this morning.

Vince: I'm sure they'll do a good job for you.

Jason: Great. Now, how about it? Do I get my apartment?

Vince: Well, don't you want to talk about the rent?

Jason: Whatever you're asking, I'll give you half.

Vince: Well, I was thinking more in terms of double.

Jason: You got a deal. I'll get the key later. Thanks.

Mitch: Got a minute, Vince?

Vince: Yeah. What's up?

Mitch: I just thought you might want to take a look at these. These were some photographs we were thinking of using for Kathleen's book.

Vince: Oh, it looks like a lot of them, huh?

Mitch: Yeah, we won't use all of them, but I thought you and Mary might want to go through them and let Mac know what you think.

Vince: Yeah, yeah, we'd -- yeah, that's what we'll do.

Sam: Well, how'd it go?

Mitch: He's going to let me know. If we can arrange some sort of work for me in France, then we'll be on the plane with Felicia.

Sam: God, isn't this something, man? I'm the one offered the permanent job in Paris and you're the one who's going.

Mitch: Does that mean you're not going? Or have you decided?

Sam: I'd be letting Mac Cory buy me off.

Mitch: Paris will be there.

Sam: Yeah.

Mitch: How's it going?

Sam: Hmm, it's ok. I got a couple of friends of mine down from Seattle. They're staying at my place.

Mitch: Three of you in your place?

Sam: Hey, it's not bad. I mean, you know, it helps me keep my mind off things -- Amanda and the baby and all.

Mitch: Don't try to con me. Your mind hasn't been off of them for a minute. Am I right?

Sam: Yeah, you're right. I can't stop thinking about them. I'm really scared, Mitch.

Mitch: Of what?

Sam: Being a father. Every time I think about it, my stomach gets all turned up in knots.

Mitch: Look, as soon as they know who you are --

[phone rings]

Mitch: They figure out what they want and they figure the signals they need to send to you to get what they want. Only thing you've got to do is you follow orders.

Sam: It's that simple?

Mitch: It's very simple. I'm telling you, a couple of days, Matthew had me squared away. Don't worry about it. You'll be a good dad.

Vince: Mac's on the phone for you, Mitch.

Mitch: Thank you, Vince.

Vince: Yeah.

Sam: Hey, Vince --

Vince: Yeah?

Sam: Um -- look, Cheryl put a book of mine behind the counter. I was wondering if I could get it from you.

Vince: I was wondering who that belonged to.

Sam: Thanks, Vince. Hey, so, what's up?

Mitch: Paris.

Sam: All right! So, here comes Monsieur Blake. Do me a favor -- when you get to the left bank, send me a post card. Maybe I'll get to go one of these days.

Mitch: Come here.

Sam: What? What?

Mitch: I want you to see something.

Sam: Yeah?

Sam: Oh, Mitch, that's amazing.

Mitch: What do you think? Think she'll like it?

Sam: What's not to like? You're really going to do it, aren't you?

Mitch: I love her. I want to get married. It's that simple.

Sam: Yeah. I kind of wish that's the way it was with me and Amanda -- simple.

Mitch: Well, from where I'm standing, it is that simple. The only thing you've got to do is get over being angry with her.

Sam: Mitch, there's a lot more to it than that.

Mitch: It's not. 10-1, you and Amanda are where Felicia and I are -- not too long. Got to go.

Sam: Hey. Don't be so sure.

Cheryl: Amanda, wait a second. Before you decide to do anything, just make sure you think about it a lot, ok?

Amanda: I didn't say I was going to have an abortion.

Cheryl: Oh.

Amanda: I'm just not really sure what I'm going to do yet. Just please don't tell anyone that I'm pregnant, ok?

Cheryl: I won't. Come on, you can trust me.

Amanda: Thanks. I've got to go up and interview Felicia.

Cheryl: Ok.

Jason: Hi, I'm looking for John Hudson.

Corker: He'll be right back.

Jason: Thank you.

Amanda: Felicia?

Felicia: Hi, Amanda. Come on in. What can I do for you?

Amanda: I know you're busy and everything, but I just wondered if I could ask you a couple of questions about your trip?

Felicia: Sure. Come on, I have time for you. Sit down. Ok, young lady, what would you like to know?

Amanda: Ok, Nicole said that you were going to be in Paris for a couple of days.

Felicia: Right.

Amanda: So, what's on the agenda?

Felicia: Well, I'm going to be having many meetings with Mr. Penoit.

Amanda: Oh. I'm sorry, who?

Felicia: Jacques de Penoit. I'm sure Nicole mentioned him to you, didn't she?

Amanda: Right, yeah, sorry. Go ahead.

Felicia: Anyway, I'm going to try to generate a lot of publicity for the show, and working out all the last-minute details and -- Amanda? Amanda?

Amanda: What?

Felicia: What's the matter?

Amanda: Everything.

Felicia: Is it Sam and the baby? You know, Mitch and I are not very good at keeping secrets from one another, and I know from him that -- well, you're having a lot of problems right now. You ok?

Amanda: I'm trying so hard to be strong.

Felicia: Oh, honey. Maybe you're being too hard on yourself. You're asking too much of yourself, huh?

Amanda: I never thought I would be so unhappy about something so wonderful.

Felicia: It's wonderful when you're with the man you love, when the two of you are ready to have a baby.

Amanda: Well, I guess that counts me out, huh?

Felicia: Amanda -- look, I mean, haven't you and Sam worked out anything yet?

Amanda: I don't even see him.

Felicia: Why? I know that you're having problems, but -- I mean, certainly there must be some time in the day that you --

Amanda: Felicia, he doesn't care about me. This pregnancy is just a big problem for him.

Felicia: Oh, honey, are you sure about that?

Amanda: Every time I see him, he just pulls away from me, like I'm the last person in the world that he wants to see.

Felicia: I'm sorry. I know how much that hurts.

Amanda: More than I ever thought was possible. I've been thinking --

Felicia: About?

Amanda: If this baby is going to have parents that can't even look at each other, maybe it's better off --

Felicia: What?

Amanda: Not being born? I feel guilty just saying it.

Felicia: Why?

Amanda: Because it's my baby and I'm thinking of --

Felicia: Having an abortion.

Amanda: What is happening to me?

Felicia: Now, look -- now, look, what's happening is this -- you're very confused and you're very upset. And believe me, that is totally understandable. You have a baby inside of you. And you're feeling right now that you're the only one who really wants it.

Amanda: But if it's going to have an awful life --

Felicia: Hey, do you remember when I told you that I understood?

Amanda: Wish I could.

Felicia: Have you ever talked to anybody who's had an abortion?

Amanda: No.

Felicia: No? Well, you think maybe it might help?

Amanda: How?

Felicia: Well, you could find out from them how it affected their life, so it would help you to make this kind of decision. Amanda, maybe you would like to know how it made me feel.

Felicia: No -- no, it -- not me -- not -- well, not exactly.

Amanda: What did you mean?

Felicia: Somebody very close to me. It was a character that I wrote about in my very first book.

Amanda: Tell me about her.

Felicia: You know, when you write about somebody, Amanda, there's so much that's a part of you, you start to understand how she feels about things.

Amanda: I can understand that.

Felicia: Especially, I mean, this was my first book, and -- well, I put so much of myself in it, my feelings about things.

Amanda: So what was she like?

Felicia: Her name was Annie. I sort of named her -- well, after myself in a way.

Amanda: Your name is Felicia --

Felicia: No, no. My name is -- is Fannie. You see, Fannie, Annie. Get it?

Amanda: Oh.

Felicia: "How do you do? Fan and Grady here."

Amanda: Ok, I remember reading about that now.

Felicia: Anyway, Annie was this beautiful, young girl like you who fell in love with a young man, and she got pregnant. Now, in those days, when you got pregnant, the boy usually married you.

Amanda: What if he didn't?

Felicia: Well, you had a couple of choices. You could have the baby alone. And of course, there was a lot of stigma attached to something like that. Or you could have an abortion. But, you see, 20 years ago, that would have to have been an illegal abortion.

Amanda: So Fannie had the abortion.

Felicia: Annie. Right. She did, and it was probably the hardest decision she ever made. Not just the decision, but actually going through it because, you see, she knew that she would always wonder about it. And the sadness that she felt -- would it ever completely go away?

Amanda: So she regretted it?

Felicia: Yes, she did regret it. Because, you see, things didn't turn out for Annie the way she thought they would.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Felicia: Well, Annie finally did get over this young man, the young man who had gotten her pregnant, and she met an even more wonderful young man who she married and she had a wonderfully happy life with. She had a fabulous career, except she could never have another baby. You see, and that's the sad part. She thought for sure that she would get another chance at it, but --

[Felicia sighs]

Felicia: I'm afraid it didn't work out that way.

Amanda: Poor Annie.

Felicia: Yeah. So, see, she regretted it for the rest of her life, that one decision.

Amanda: How awful.

Felicia: Now look, Amanda, I'm not telling you that I -- I think having an abortion is wrong. I mean, each situation is very different, and I would never presume to judge somebody on something that they felt that they had to do.

Amanda: Why'd you tell me about Annie?

Felicia: Because I think that if Annie had another chance to make that decision all over again, I -- I think she would have had that baby, you know? And I just think it's important that you know that.

Amanda: Felicia, the father in the book -- did he want the baby?

Felicia: She never talked to him about it. You see, that's another terrible mistake. Amanda, talk to Sam. Tell him what you're considering. I think you owe that much to him, don't you?

Amanda: You are a wonderful woman.

Felicia: No. No, I'm not. I'm a terrific writer, though.

Amanda: Thanks. Thanks for telling me about Annie.

Felicia: Listen, would you mind if I ventured an opinion here?

Amanda: No. Go ahead.

Felicia: For what it's worth, I think Sam loves you. I really do.

Nicole: I hope you realize you're staring.

Jason: I'm sorry. I'm didn't mean to be.

Nicole: Do I know you?

Jason: You are so much like somebody that I --

Nicole: I've got one of these faces, I guess.

Jason: No, no, it's not that, not at all.

Nicole: I'm Nicole Love.

Jason: I know.

Nicole: And you are?

Jason: Jason Frame. I worked for your father on the estate.

Nicole: When?

Jason: Oh, it was a long time ago. You were a young girl.

Nicole: You were the horse trainer.

Jason: You got it.

Nicole: I do remember, yes.

Jason: Well, I got one of those faces.

[Nicole chuckles]

Jason: It's good to see you again. And I was right, I knew you'd turn out to be one beautiful woman.

Nicole: Well, thank you.

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Thanks, Nicole.

Nicole: Sure.

Amanda: Oh, excuse me.

Nicole: No, it's all right. Was Felicia helpful?

Amanda: Yeah, she really was.

Nicole: Well, that's good.

Amanda: Maybe you and I can talk some other time.

Nicole: Ok, when I'm relatively sane, and I promise you, that day will come.

Cheryl: I just talked to pops. He said Dawn collapsed today at Mary's Place.

Nicole: Oh, no.

Jason: I was there.

Cheryl: You were?

Jason: Yeah, he got her off to the hospital just fine.

Cheryl: Pops said that she's ok.

Nicole: Well, she was doing so much better, I thought.

Cheryl: Well, at least she's in the hospital now.

Amanda: Poor girl. I better get back to the offices, so --

Nicole: Bye.

Amanda: Bye.

Cheryl: Amanda, wait a second. Pops mentioned that Sam is at Mary's Place.

Amanda: Thanks.

Nicole: Cheryl? Can I see that list for a minute?

Cheryl: Yeah.

Nicole: Thanks. Here, why don't you help me and show me what you've done here.

John: Jason, what are you doing here?

Jason: Looking for you.

John: Well, didn't think you came by to pick up a new wardrobe.

Jason: No, I came by to see if I could talk you into a job.

John: Construction?

Jason: Yeah, remodeling the old Frame farmhouse.

John: Well, we don't come cheap, you know. You better be ready to do some hard bargaining.

Jason: I don't got much money.

John: We'll do it.

Jason: Thanks.

John: Sure.

Scott: Jamie says you're going to get out of here real soon.

Dawn: I feel so tired.

Chad: Of course you do right now.

Scott: Look, just wait till tomorrow, ok?

Dawn: I want to go back to school.

Scott: You will. You will.

Dawn: I've wanted this degree in music all my life.

Chad: Sweetie, you're going to have it. I promise, this is just a little setback.

Scott: Dawn, Dawn, hey, we're going to get you through this. I promise you.

Jamie: Dawn has a lot of courage.

Vicky: So do you.

Jamie: Me?

Vicky: The way you handle everything so well. And only on two hours' sleep?

Jamie: Oh, I get more than that.

Vicky: What time were you in this morning, 4:00 in the morning?

Jamie: Something like that, yeah.

Vicky: Yeah, well, why don't you sit down for a minute?

Jamie: No, not right now.

Vicky: Yeah, yeah, I'll rub your neck.

Jamie: You talked me into it.

Vicky: Ok. Think Lisa's going to get used to it?

Jamie: What? You rubbing my neck?

Vicky: No, your doctor's hours. I heard it's quite an adjustment to marry a doctor.

Jamie: It's the same as living together. She handles that pretty well.

Vicky: Good. Well, then, there won't be any problems. By the way, is Lisa home today? I thought I might give her a call.

Jamie: No, she's down at the police station, talking to Adam about that job.

Vicky: Hmm.

Woman: Hi, Vicky.

Vicky: Kathy, what beautiful flowers.

Kathy: They just came for someone who went home today. Any suggestions?

Jamie: Yeah, why don't you give them to Dawn? It might cheer her up.

Vicky: Yeah, that's a great idea. She's right in there.

Kathy: Ok, sure. Oh, no.

Vicky: What's the matter?

Kathy: No way I'm going in there.

Jamie: What's the problem?

Kathy: Dr. Frame, that girl has AIDS.

Jamie: Yes, the patient has AIDS.

Kathy: How could Vicky just ask me to go in there?

Jamie: Because you're at no risk by walking in there. You would be at more risk if she had a cold.

Kathy: That's what everybody says, but --

Jamie: You cannot get AIDS by being in the same room with someone who has AIDS. Now, she asked you to carry flowers in there, not handle body fluids!

Kathy: I'm sorry, doctor. I'm just -- I'm afraid. I'm sorry.

Vicky: Let -- Kathy, it's ok. He's just tired right now, ok?

Jamie: Kathy, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to yell at you. But you work in a hospital. You have to try to educate yourself to this. AIDS patients need your support and understanding, and they won't get that if people are afraid of them.

Kathy: I don't want to be afraid.

Jamie: Then don't be. Giving into panic doesn't help anybody. Not you, not Dawn.

Vicky: Jamie, you really made her understand.

Jamie: Oh, I hope so.

Vicky: You did.

Jamie: People must understand this disease and care about the people who have it. We have to make them understand somehow.

Jason: Got to tear out a couple of walls. That's got to be done.

John: No problem. Corky used to be a demolitions expert. He's got a tattoo on his arm that says "life is a blast."

Corker: I'm sorry -- that --

Cheryl: It's ok, it's ok. Don't worry about it, all right?

Corker: No, it --

John: Cheryl?

John: Listen, you have a start date?

Jason: Whenever you wrap up here.

John: All right, I'll be in touch. Where are you staying?

Jason: I got an apartment. I'm just moving in over at Mary's Place upstairs.

John: Great, I'll give you a call.

Jason: Good. I'll let you get back to work.

John: Ok, thanks.

Jason: Sure. Nicole, I hope I get a chance to see you again.

Nicole: Oh.

Jason: Ok.

Nicole: Mr. Frame?

Jason: Yep?

Nicole: When you said that I reminded you of someone, was it my mother?

Jason: Yes. There is an uncanny resemblance. The two of you could be twins. She was a very beautiful woman. Well, see you.

Nicole: Bye.

John: Look, Corky, I'm not going to tell you again. One more time, and you're out of here.

Corker: Right.

John: Just keep it locked up, man.

Corker: Yeah, thanks.

Cheryl: I'm sorry, John. I -- I just didn't want to see him get in trouble, that's all.

John: It's all right. I know you meant well. It's just that he has a problem.

Cheryl: Well, he seems like a nice guy.

John: Cheryl, even nice guys can have drinking problems.

Joyce: Hi, Sam.

Sam: I don't believe this.

Joyce: How have you been?

Sam: Hi, Joyce. What are you doing here?

Joyce: I thought it might be a good time to visit.

Sam: Whoa, why?

Joyce: I heard you were feeling kind of lonely.

Sam: You -- how did you hear this?

Joyce: Kirk told me.

Sam: Kirk told -- I'm going to kill him.

Joyce: What?

Sam: What did he say?

Joyce: He said that he's a little worried about you, and I am, too.

Sam: Joyce, listen, I'm fine, all right?

Joyce: You know, Sam, despite everything, we're still friends. You can still talk to me.

Sam: Listen, Joyce, you should have called me first. This is kind of a bad time. It really is.

Joyce: I know. That's why I'm here.

Sam: No, you don't understand. I'm caught up in something here that's -- look, the guys -- they're bunking with me. I don't even know where you'll stay.

Joyce: I guess I can stay at a hotel.

Sam: Great.

Joyce: I'll go look in the phone book.

Sam: No, that's -- that's ok. I'll call, ok?

Sam: Yeah, I'll hold.

Joyce: I'll go wait at the table.

Sam: Yeah.

Joyce: Hi, Mandy. What's new?

Amanda: Janet.

Joyce: Joyce.

Amanda: Whatever.

Sam: Joyce, I got you a room at the Avery. It's a nice hotel, so you should like it.

Joyce: Sam --

Sam: Listen, I got to get back to work. I got a lot of stuff to do at "Brava," so I'll just drop you off at the hotel, ok?

Joyce: Sam, you'll never guess who was just in here.

Sam: No, who?

Joyce: Your runner? You know, Mandy Ashton?

Nicole: Purple, a rich purple. Yes. Oh, ok, great. That'll be fine. Thanks.

Cheryl: I've got writer's cramp. Would it be ok if I took off for a little while?

Nicole: Sure, you go ahead. You've done enough already.

Cheryl: All right. I think my coat's upstairs. I'll be back.

John: Nic, we'll be back later, too. I think Corky here needs a little fresh air.

Nicole: Ok.

John: Let's go.

Corker: All right.

John: Nic, I heard what Jason said to you earlier about your mother.

Nicole: Do you remember her?

John: Yeah, yeah, a little bit. I think that Jason was right.

Nicole: That I look like her?

John: And that she was beautiful.

Nicole: Thanks.

John: See you later, Nic..

Nicole: Yeah.

John: Come on, Corker. Let's go recon the neighborhood, see if we can't find a good cup of coffee.

Corker: Good idea.

Nicole: Oh, mama. Why did you have to leave? Things would be so different now.

Reginald: So you were back in Bay City the night of the fire.

Jason: Yep.

Reginald: On the Love estate, to be specific.

Jason: To be very specific. It's a lovely place. The Love estate -- I could never stay away from there. There was always something going on, and I like to keep my eyes open so I wouldn't miss anything, Reginald.

Reginald: And your eyes were open that night, I assume?

Jason: They were wide open, and what I saw will be the basis for our partnership.

Reginald: How so?

Jason: Well, you don't want me to spell it out any more, do you? I think I've been pretty clear about it from the very beginning, haven't I?

Reginald: Yes, I suppose you have.

Jason: Good. What we need to do now is work out the specific agreement.

Reginald: What did you have in mind?

Jason: Mull it over. We'll talk about it again.

Mitch: Am I late?

Felicia: Mitch. Hi! There's just time to get to the airport.

Mitch: Do we have time to stop by and pick up my bags?

Felicia: Does that mean you're coming with me?

Mitch: Not only that, I'm going to be your own personal guide.

Felicia: Oh! Great! Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mitch: Then after Paris and Monaco --

Felicia: Yes? Yes?

Mitch: Maybe ease by St. Tropez, find a villa?

Felicia: I don't believe you're saying this. St. Tropez?

Mitch: Then when we get settled in --

Felicia: Yeah?

Mitch: I'm going to give you a surprise.

Felicia: A surprise? Like what? Like what kind of surprise?

Mitch: Come on, we've got a plane to catch.
