Amanda: I don't understand. What can happen?

Sam: Plenty, believe me --

Amanda: You worry too much.

Hank: Shh.

[Felicia laughs]

Sam: Oh, wow.

Amanda: What?

Sam: What can happen? That can happen.

Felicia: So, then, all the things they wrote about Louie B. Mayer are really true?

Loretta: Well, I don't know about all the things, but, oh, L .B. was really something. He treated actors like fine porcelain -- unless you turned him down.

Felicia: Ah. Well, did you turn him down?

Loretta: Well, I was barely 16, fresh off the Broadway stage.

Felicia: Then you were a musical comedy star.

Loretta: The metropolitan opera had offered me a position in their company, but I had no discipline then.

Felicia: Oh, Loretta, please, who has discipline at 16?

Loretta: Well, anyway, when M.G.M. called, Mr. Mayer himself was on the phone.

Sam: Oh, please.

Amanda: What's the matter?

Sam: Thought you said she only wanted to watch the taping.

Felicia: All right. So, then, let's say you resisted his advances, right?

Loretta: Well, he made a pass, and I turned him down, and, oh, that was it. I mean, Kathryn Grayson and Jane Powell got all the parts he'd promised me. I got a ticket -- train ticket home.

Felicia: Well, I hope at least it was first-class.

Loretta: Oh, I went home in grand style, the grandest.

Amanda: I think she's great. She's unbelievable.

Sam: "Unbelievable" is exactly the right word.

Mary: Oh, hi, you're here.

Jason: All present and accounted for, ma'am.

Mary: What you doing?

Jason: Sobering. Like that music? Baptist music.

Mary: Nice.

Jason: Shame you can't remember everything about 18 years ago. I have an extremely -- extremely, really, lousy voice.

Mary: You ok?

Jason: I'm fine. I'm great. I couldn't be better. Yep.

Mary: Last night was rough on everybody.

Jason: No, it wasn't -- it was fine for me.

Mary: You going to talk to me like a person, or you just going to be flip?

Jason: Mary, what are you doing here?

Mary: Gosh, now I don't know. Hi, John.

John: Hi, Mary.

John: Jason and I are supposed to work on the house today.

Mary: Oh, gosh. You get to be with him all day long?

John: I'm lucky that way.

Jason: Mary, go home.

Lisa: Jamie?

Jamie: Oh, what do you know -- you're home.

Lisa: Where else would I be?

Jamie: At this hour, work. Isn't that where you usually are?

Lisa: I got in late last night. It was a rough one for both of us, I guess.

Jamie: That's an understatement.

Lisa: How's Donna?

Jamie: Donna's going to make it, but her baby might not.

Lisa: No?

Jamie: Taking a fall from a two-story window isn't exactly the most ideal thing for a pregnant lady to do.

Lisa: I know how much she and Michael wanted that baby. How is he?

Jamie: Well, I finally got him to go to sleep. He was glued to Donna's side all night long, even though he wasn't in much better shape himself. Do we have any coffee made?

Lisa: Yeah, but I think you should forget that. You need to get some sleep.

Jamie: I'm tired, all right.

Lisa: I know how you feel. Why don't you come back to bed with me. It's still warm.

Jamie: Before we do, we need to talk.

Lisa: Talk?

Jamie: Yeah, about something Vicky said.

Lisa: Oh, Jamie, I really -- I don't want to talk about Vicky right now.

Jamie: Lisa, I think that --

Lisa: Jamie, I know Victoria is a friend and she's probably been through one hell of a night, but I have been through a hell of a night, too.

Jamie: Because of your police work?

Lisa: Yes. Jamie, I need your arms around me.

Jamie: My arms?

Lisa: What do you mean?

Jamie: Nothing.

[Phone rings]

Lisa: Jamie --

Jamie: Oh, I better get that.

Lisa: Jamie, I want to know what you mean.

Jamie: Hey, listen, I'm a doctor and you're a cop. This might be important.


Jamie: Hello.

Adam: Jamie, it's Adam.

Jamie: Oh, hi, Adam. He has some questions he wants to ask you about Andre. So do I.

Lisa: No. No, it's fine.

Adam: Look, Lisa, I know we went over this stuff last night, but, frankly, you'd be doing me a big favor. I'd like to go over this again, everything that you can remember about Andre.

Lisa: How about later today?

Adam: Sure. Sure. Look, I know you've got to be exhausted. I've got a pile of work sitting here on my desk, and the captain wants to see me.

Lisa: Thanks, Adam.

Adam: No, thank you. Listen, I'll give you a call later.

Lisa: Ok, bye. He needs me to go over everything about last night again.

Jamie: About Andre?

Lisa: I don't know what's the matter with you, but, yes, about Andre.

Jamie: Did you have another little tete-a-tete with the guy?

Lisa: For your information, I was held at gunpoint last night by Andre.

Jamie: What?

Lisa: And for your information, I was scared to death.

Jamie: Are you all right now?

Lisa: Oh, yes. I am fine now. Just terrific, Jamie. Except I have to deal with an angry boyfriend for I don't know why. All I want is for you to hold me right now.

Jamie: Lisa, I'm sorry, but I come in here half-cocked myself because I had a rotten night, too, and no sleep, and all I can think about is you kissing this Andre character.

Lisa: My kissing him?

Jamie: Yeah, Viki happened to mention that she saw you in Tops.

Lisa: At Tops. On an undercover assignment knowing that if I did not kiss the man, he would be suspicious. Why did she even tell you that?

Jamie: I'm sure -- I don't know -- I'm sure she didn't mean anything.

Lisa: Yes, I'm sure she didn't.

Jamie: Listen, it's not important.

Lisa: It's not?

Jamie: No, she was concerned and worried about you.

Lisa: Her kind of concern I don't need.

Jamie: Listen, don't land all this on me. I'm the one who was going nuts thinking about you kissing this -- this stranger because of a job I don't even want you to have!

Lisa: You are the one who is thinking that I'm doing something wrong.

Jamie: Oh, I'm sorry that I don't like what you did. I don't like thinking about you with another man, Lisa.

Lisa: Jamie, I don't want to be with another man! I want to be with you! Don't you honestly know that?

Jamie: Well, maybe I overreacted. I'm sorry. Really. Come on. You know I don't like to see you get upset like this. You know that I love you.

Lisa: Just hold me.

Jamie: It's going to be ok.

Lisa: Last night when Adam rescued me, all I wanted was for you to be there to hold me. Now you're going to be jealous of Adam?

Jamie: Let's not talk about Adam or Andre or your work or my work or anything except you and me.

Lisa: Ok.

Jamie: No, better yet, let's just -- let's just not talk at all. Ok?

Ada: You're not using the same caterer that you used for your last party, are you?

Rachel: Why not? I thought they were terrific.

Ada: Well, if you like carrots that look like palm trees.

Rachel: Too novel, huh?

Ada: Cute food is out.

Rachel: All right, well, then I leave it up to you to find a caterer that's a nice meat and potatoes caterer.

Ada: Well, I'd have Mary's Place do it, but I know I'll be too nervous. I'll make some calls. What about the flowers?

Rachel: Well, I have an appointment with the florist -- oh -- in a few minutes. Listen, could you stay here and wait for Loretta? I don't want her to come back and have the place be empty.

Ada: I can't wait to meet this lady.

Rachel: She looks wonderful.

Ada: How does Mac feel about her staying here?

Rachel: I think he's rather charmed.

Ada: Is it true she's only playing with half a deck?

Rachel: Mom!

Ada: What do you mean, Mom? Everybody says so.

Rachel: She's eccentric.

Ada: Is that why Sam's so uptight about her?

Rachel: Oh, you know children. They don't like their parents to be flamboyant or interesting.

Ada: I know. They like them to be reserved and dignified like me.

Rachel: That's right, exactly.

Ada: There you go, honey. Well, listen, I'm going to drop the reserved and dignified for a minute. You stay out of it. Don't get involved in another family's problems, ok?

Rachel: Who said I was getting involved?

Ada: I can smell it. You're just going to make everything all right, aren't you?

Rachel: Loretta Fowler is Matthew's grandmother, Mom. She's part of our family whether you like it or not. Now, I really have to go.

Ada: When is Matthew coming home from school?

Rachel: He's coming home in time for the wedding.

Ada: Oh, did he say so?

Rachel: I said so.

Ada: And he said he would come?

Rachel: He has no choice.

Ada: Oh, Matthew's getting a little discipline, I see.

Rachel: I always discipline Matthew.

Ada: Then how come he always gets his own way?

Rachel: He doesn't get his own way, Mom. He takes his own way. That's the age. He's at a very contrary age.

Ada: To say nothing of being pigheaded. He'll outgrow it, like you did.

Rachel: I'm going to ignore that, but only because you're helping me so much with this wedding. Now, I really do have to go.

Ada: Bye.

John: Maybe I should come back later.

Mary: No.

Jason: Why would you want to do something like that, John?

John: I feel like I'm interrupting here.

Mary: No, I was just leaving.

Jason: That's right.

Mary: I came over to see how Jason was.

John: Uh-huh.

Jason: Jason is doing fine. Jason is celebrating.

Mary: Gee, you could've fooled me.

Jason: This house, other than this area, has just -- it's almost finished, right, John?

John: Well, pretty close, yeah.

Jason: That's something to celebrate.

Mary: Yeah. You really look like you're in a party mood.

Jason: Yeah.

John: She's right, Jason. You really don't look too hot.

Jason: Well, thank you both. I'll -- I'll spruce up, and we can get to work -- and get rid of her.

Mary: Oh, gosh, Jason, you don't have to be so polite.

Jason: Anytime.

John: We don't often get to see him this way.

Mary: I think once is enough, don't you?

John: Mm-hmm. I don't think he likes taking advice, especially from a woman.

Mary: What a charming attribute.

John: I didn't say I thought he was right.

Mary: I really did just come over to see how he was after last night.

John: I called the hospital. They say that Donna's condition is stable.

Mary: That's good. Did you talk to Michael?

John: We don't talk much.

Mary: When you think of the heartache that Reginald has caused, most of which I remember now --

John: Have you regained your memory completely?

Mary: Well, a lot of it, which is the one positive thing that's come out of all this.

John: Well, that's great.

Mary: Yeah. I don't know that it would have happened without Jason, and I really wanted to thank him.

John: Well, he's not very good at accepting gratitude, either.

Mary: Isn't that ridiculous. Tell him that I won't bother him again.

Felicia: All right, now you're -- you have rejected Louie B. Mayer and you are now back home again. So tell us, Loretta, any second thoughts, any regrets?

Loretta: Well, I really didn't have time. Hollywood called again.

Sam: How long can this go on?

Amanda: Shh.

Felicia: Really? Louie?

Loretta: Darryl.

Felicia: Zanuck, of course.

Loretta: 20th Century Fox.

Felicia: So I take it you got back on a train.

Loretta: Yes. The super chief out of Chicago headed for Union station, Los Angeles.

Felicia: Those really were the days, weren't they? All right, now, you're back in Hollywood.

Loretta: Well, yes, but not for long. Shortly after I got there, I found out I was pregnant. Starlets aren't supposed to have babies.

Felicia: Oh. So what did Darryl have to say about that?

Loretta: Well, he was very unhappy but understanding. He made the picture without me.

Felicia: Oh, dear. Oh, one minute. You're kidding. Where does the time go, huh?

Loretta: I've asked myself that same question for years.

Felicia: I would absolutely love it if you would come back and tell us some more stories.

Loretta: Well, as long as you don't ask me about Frank.

Felicia: Frank? Frank Sinatra?

Loretta: He did do it his way.

Felicia: She will be back, I promise you. And so will I, tomorrow. Thanks for joining me. See you then. Bye-bye.

Hank: And we're out. Thank you. Good show.

Felicia: Good? Oh, it was great, thanks to you, Loretta.

Loretta: Well, it was fun.

Felicia: Oh, you've had some life, you know?

Loretta: Well, they were good days.

Felicia: I really meant it. I want you to come back and tell us the rest of your stories.

Loretta: I could come back.

Felicia: Great. Thank you.

Hank: Felicia?

Felicia: Yes.

Hank: We need to do a wrap.

Felicia: Oh, all right, Hank. You know, I really want to thank you for bailing us out. You were a real trouper. Wally would have absolutely gone crazy for you.

Loretta: Wally?

Felicia: Well, he was a very dear friend of mine, and the two of you would have gotten along like gang-busters.

Hank: Felicia?

Felicia: Yes, yes, I'm coming. Thanks again, Loretta. I will see you soon, all right?

Loretta: Don't give up on your dreams.

Amanda: If she was my mother, I'd be proud.

Sam: She's not your mother.

Amanda: I don't see what the problem is. She's had such a fascinating life.

Sam: With my mother, things aren't quite what they seem.

Loretta: Hi, kids. Did you get to see the show?

Amanda: Oh, yeah.

Loretta: Well, what'd you think?

Amanda: I thought you were wonderful.

Loretta: I think it went pretty well.

Sam: How did you work it so you got on tv, ma?

Amanda: Yeah, when I left, I thought you were just going to be watching.

Sam: Yeah. What happened?

Loretta: Well, it's a long story. Amanda, what do you say we do some shopping?

Amanda: Sure, great.

Sam: No way.

Amanda: Why not?

Sam: I can't allow this.

Amanda: Sam. He's just joking.

Loretta: Men simply don't understand about the fun things in life. I'll just go get my cape and I'll be right back.

Amanda: Why did you talk to her like that?

Sam: Don't do this, Amanda.

Amanda: Sam, your mother and I are going shopping, and we're going to have a great time. When I get back, I want to know why you're acting like this.

Sam: You do not understand her.

Amanda: Sam, I think you're the one that's not being very understanding.

Loretta: I'm ready!

Amanda: Coming.

Loretta: See you later, sweetheart.

Jason: Where's Mary?

John: Gone. She left a message for you.

Jason: Oh, I bet she did.

John: You want to hear it?

Jason: Sure, try me.

John: Said she won't be bothering you anymore.

Jason: Could be worse.

John: Yeah, much.

Jason: I was pretty rough on her.

John: Yep, you sure were.

Jason: I knew if I wasn't, I knew exactly what would happen.

John: What's that?

Jason: Well, she would start remembering too many things from the past. Then she'd have a lot of questions about it, and it's stuff that, as far as I'm concerned, should just be part of the past now.

John: Yeah, I know what you mean.

Jason: Do you?

John: Yeah, I've been there. Ran away for 20 years.

Jason: Hey, I've run so far, I can't remember how far.

John: Surprised we didn't bump into each other along the way.

Jason: Well, we did. See, we finished our trip, and we're back together now. Now we hit.

John: Well, things are going a little bit better for me. How about you?

Jason: I can't forget her. I tried. I tried with a whole heck of a lot of women. I sure have.

John: She's the one, huh?

Jason: She's the only one. Don't let that happen to yourself.

John: Now, I figure I'll get it all together someday.

Jason: Good. How is Donna doing?

John: Ok from what I hear. I -- I've been keeping my distance from the hospital.

Jason: Why? Michael's your brother.

John: It doesn't mean he wants me around.

Jason: That's true. I've had my run-ins with my brothers, that's for sure.

John: I remember.

Jason: Steve's dead now. Willis and I still hardly talk much at all. That's not how brothers should be, not at all.

John: No. No, it isn't.

Jason: Family's too important for that. John, the house is coming along fine, but we've got to get this kitchen finished. I got to settle up something. Going to be gone about an hour, all right? Hey -- thanks.

Lisa: Been a while.

Jamie: Well, hey, I've been here.

Lisa: Not a complaint.

[Knock on door]

Jamie: Oh, I don't believe it.

Lisa: Guess you better see who it is.

Jamie: Oh, Adam. Your timing is perfect as usual. Come on in.

Adam: Am I interrupting?

Jamie: Oh, no, that's ok. We were just playing a game of charades. We can get back to that anytime.

Adam: Charades?

Lisa: Need me for something, Adam?

Adam: Yeah, if you got a minute.

Jamie: Oh, she's got more time than that, Adam.

Adam: Hey, you don't have to leave.

Jamie: No, no, no, no, no. I do. I have to get some fresh air. Besides, I have to do something very important. I have to organize my future brother-in-law's bachelor party. Hope you can make it, Adam.

Adam: I wouldn't miss it, Jamie.

Lisa: Jamie -- can we meet later?

Jamie: We can try. Work hard.

Lisa: Great. Oh, great.

Adam: I am interrupting something, aren't I?

Lisa: You said you were going to call.

Adam: I thought it'd be easier if I came by. I didn't know that you --

Lisa: It's all right. It's not your fault. Do you want some coffee?

Adam: I'd love some. Jamie knows what happened?

Lisa: Yeah. So, what's up?

Adam: We put a 24-hour guard on Reginald.

Lisa: No contact from Andre?

Adam: None, not so far, but we're pretty sure he's still someplace here in the city.

Lisa: And you want to go over everything I remember about last night.

Adam: That, yes. There's also something else I'd like to talk to you about. Look, I don't want the press to know what we've got on Reginald.

Lisa: That he killed his wife.

Adam: Right. Mike's afraid of what the publicity will do to Donna, and, well, for some reason, he doesn't want Nicole to know, either.

Lisa: I can understand that.

Adam: There's no point in hurting everybody, particularly if this case doesn't go to court.

Lisa: You mean if Reginald dies?

Adam: Right. So, since you are our community relations representative, I thought you could field some questions from the press.

Lisa: You bet.

Adam: Um -- when I talked to the captain, he wanted to talk about you.

Lisa: And?

Adam: He seems to feel that you have a future in undercover work -- under the right circumstances.

Lisa: Really?

Adam: Really.

Lisa: So, what's the problem, Adam?

Adam: Your future with Jamie. You thought about that?

Lisa: W

Mitch: Hi.

Felicia: There you are. I've been looking everywhere for you.

Mitch: Oh, yeah?

Felicia: I thought maybe we could have lunch together.

Mitch: Sure.

Felicia: I was going to go over and see Donna at the hospital, but they're not letting her have any visitors yet.

Mitch: How's she doing?

Felicia: Well, they said that she needs complete rest, and there might be a chance that she could lose this baby.

Mitch: Well, I'm sure that Michael will see to it that she gets plenty of rest.

Felicia: This baby means so much to her.

Mitch: How did the taping go?

Felicia: I miss Wally. I just never realized how much I depended on him.

Mitch: Did you find a replacement for Nicole?

Felicia: Yes, as a matter of fact, I did. Somebody wonderful.

Mitch: See? There you go. I knew you'd come through.

Felicia: Well, I didn't really do it. This fabulous substitute sort of just fell into our laps.

Mitch: Oh, really?

Felicia: She was one of those starlet types, you know, from the 1940s and the 1950s. She had these great stories to tell. She knew a lot of people. She had lots of energy. She was full of life and --

Mitch: That's great. Is there --

Felicia: Gee, not like somebody I know.

Mitch: What's wrong?

Felicia: Gee, you took the words right out of my mouth.

Mitch: Nothing's wrong.

Felicia: You're lying, Mitch Blake. This has to do with your mother, doesn't it?

Mitch: I haven't even spoken with her.

Felicia: I know, but she's in town and she hasn't called you yet. Is that it?

Mitch: I'm a big boy, you know.

Felicia: I know, but, you know, I would like to meet her. I know. But let me call her.

Mitch: You can call her. You can do anything you want to do. I just think there are some things you should know about her first.

Lisa: Jamie has nothing to do with it.

Adam: You love him, don't you?

Lisa: I don't have to ask his permission to do a job.

Adam: That's not what I'm saying.

Lisa: He doesn't have to ask me.

Adam: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Why are you so angry about this?

Lisa: Because this is my life, Adam. My life, my job, my decision.

Adam: Now, Lisa, look, this is not a normal job. This is not like getting a job in the Steno pool, you know.

Lisa: So you're on his side.

Adam: Look, if it was a woman that I loved and she was in danger at work, I wouldn't like it.

Lisa: That's a lot of sexist nonsense.

Adam: That's reality, Lisa.

Lisa: What about M.J.? She did undercover work all the time.

Adam: Well, after we were married, she was going to quit.

Lisa: Undercover work?

Adam: Being a cop.

Lisa: You have got to be kidding.

Adam: I'm not saying it would have worked. I just couldn't be worrying about her all the time like that.

Lisa: And you'd ask a woman to quit the same job you're doing because you think she can't handle it?

Adam: No, it's not that easy --

Lisa: It's discrimination. The only thing that should matter is whether or not the person can do the job. Can I do the job?

Adam: Of course you can do the job. Listen, the point is --

Lisa: The point is I can.

Adam: Look, Lisa, Battelier knows that you're working for us. Your cover is blown.

Lisa: Well, Adam, there are other jobs I can do.

Adam: Yeah, that's what the captain said.

Lisa: Good for the captain.

Adam: I told him that I would ask you. He wants to know if you'll use your psychic thing to help us find Battelier.

Lisa: I'll use every resource I have to find Battelier.

Adam: Just don't go looking for trouble.

Lisa: I can take it, Adam.

Adam: It was Jamie I was wondering about.

Lisa: We'll just have to see about him, won't we?

Jamie: Could you get me a beer, please? Oh, hi, Scott. You got any news on Dawn's case?

Scott: No, not yet.

Jamie: Well, listen, they've got to rule against the conservatory. I mean, they've got to let her back in her classes.

Scott: I hope the judge agrees with you.

Jamie: Well, you don't sound too hopeful.

Scott: We're hanging in there. Zack says he thinks we're going to get something this afternoon. Anyway, so how's my dad doing?

Jamie: Still critical, but I'll keep you posted on his condition if you want.

Scott: Seems like I can handle about one piece of information at a time right now. Thanks.

Jamie: Bye.

Jason: Scott, you seen your mom?

Scott: No, I haven't.

Jason: She's probably upstairs, then. Thanks.

Scott: No, she's not. I was just up there.

Jason: Thank you. Jamie. Hey, how you doing?

Jamie: Hi, Jason.

Jason: You seen Mary?

Jamie: No, not lately.

Jason: What's wrong?

Jamie: Just a bad day, I guess.

Jason: You guess?

Jamie: A bad few days.

Jason: Sounds like women problems to me.

Jamie: Yeah, it's Lisa.

Jason: You want to talk about it?

Jamie: I wouldn't know where to begin, to tell you the truth. I mean, it's not really anything that she's done. It's just -- I don't know -- she seems a lot different than when I first met her.

Jason: Jamie, people do change. Everybody does.

Jamie: I thought it'd be a good idea to move in with her, but I'm not so sure.

Jason: In other words, you feel a little bit trapped. Is that it?

Jamie: Maybe that's it. Maybe I need some free time alone.

Jason: I'm moving my stuff out to the farm right now.

Jamie: It's all fixed up?

Jason: Well, it's livable enough, but you need a spot, it's yours.

Jamie: Well, thanks, Jason. I appreciate that.

Jason: Thank me at the Frame farmhouse, which means it is your home.

Rachel: Jason, just what are you trying to do?

Jason: Hi, Rachel.

Jamie: Jason was just telling me I have a place to crash if I want to.

Rachel: Yes, I heard him.

Jason: I got a lot of room, Rachel.

Rachel: So now you're encouraging Jamie to move out on Lisa and move in with you?

Jamie: Mom, you're making way too much of this.

Rachel: Jason, you never so much as sent him a postcard, and now you're trying to run his life?

Jason: It looks like he's doing a right fine job himself. All the Frame boys were on their own by the time they were 15.

Rachel: Please. Jamie isn't like the rest of the Frames, and you never had a thing to do with his life, so don't start now.

Jamie: Mom, knock it off.

Rachel: Why don't you make up your own mind? Don't get swayed by the Frame lore here.

Jamie: Mom, he couldn't do that. Now, we were just talking.

Rachel: No, you weren't just talking. He was pretending he was an uncle. He was giving you all sorts of macho advice.

Jamie: He was being friendly. Why are you afraid of that?

Rachel: Is it true? Are things going badly with you and Lisa? Are you going to move out?

Jamie: We're having problems. We'll try to work them through somehow.

Rachel: Well, work it out. Don't be stupid.

Lisa: How would you react?

Adam: Why do you want to do this?

Lisa: Because I'm good at it and because it's exciting.

Adam: Even after last night? Even after Andre held a gun on you?

Lisa: I was scared.

Adam: But not scared enough to quit.

Lisa: Scared enough to be smarter next time.

Adam: Does Jamie have any idea how tough you can be?

Lisa: I don't think Jamie wants to know.

Adam: I don't know. I don't know. I guess if it was up to me, I wouldn't stand in your way of you getting what you want.

Lisa: I wish your cousin was more like you.

Adam: I didn't say that I would like it any better.

Lisa: Then why did you say it?

Adam: Well, it's just that I'd be -- he'd be a fool to lose somebody like you.

Mitch: What do you want to know about her?

Felicia: She's your mother. I mean, I want to know everything about her. She raised you.

Mitch: No, she didn't raise me. I happened to grow up in the same house. I grew up and I got out.

Felicia: I'm sorry.

Mitch: There's nothing to be sorry about. I mean, there's just not that much to it. We never had much of a relationship.

Felicia: But why?

Mitch: Because she didn't want children. She made it very clear -- I ruined her life.

Felicia: Oh, Mitch.

Mitch: It's all right. It didn't last that long. By the time I was 13, I was out of there.

Felicia: You were on your own at 13?

Mitch: Yeah. It was better for both of us.

Felicia: No. Don't be silly.

Mitch: Believe me.

Felicia: Mitch, you were a child at 13.

Mitch: Believe me, it was better than being with her.

Felicia: I'm sure that she -- she must have loved you in her own way.

Mitch: You had to be there.

Felicia: What about Sam?

Mitch: Sam is a different story.

Felicia: She loved Sam?

Mitch: She loves Sam too much.

Felicia: What does that mean?

Mitch: Well, you'll just have to ask Sam. But I want you to understand why if I don't see her while she's in Bay City.

Felicia: No, I don't understand. I just don't.

Mitch: Then you'll just have to try.

Hank: I've caught lightning in a cassette.

Felicia: Oh.

Hank: You want to see?

Felicia: Yes. Thanks, Hank. I think we could use a little cheering up, right?

Mitch: Right.

Felicia: Well, I know a woman who could do that for just about anybody.

Mitch: Who?

Felicia: That woman who was on my show.

Mitch: No.

Felicia: Yes, the woman that is on this tape. The one on my show, Mitch.

Mitch: The woman that's on the tape that was on your show -- that woman's my mom.

Felicia: Loretta?

Mitch: Right.

Felicia: Loretta is your mother?

Mitch: You don't notice a resemblance?

Felicia: I don't believe it.

Mitch: I don't talk as much as she does, that's for sure.

Felicia: So, you did see the taping, then, right?

Mitch: I saw some of it, not all of it.

Felicia: Why didn't you stay? Why didn't you say hello to her? You could have introduced us.

Mitch: I was going to, but then she started getting into her stories.

Felicia: Stories? You mean the stuff she says about Hollywood, that's not true?

Mitch: Who knows? What comes out of her mouth -- it might be the truth, it might not.

Felicia: Mitch, I mean, she's -- she was so believable.

Mitch: Yes, she is.

Felicia: She has a real spirit about her.

Mitch: Yes, and she comes by it very honestly.

Felicia: Honey, she's warm. Really, she was -- she was wonderful.

Mitch: A wonderful actress, maybe. I'm just not much of a fan of hers.

Loretta: Now that's what I call a shopping spree.

Amanda: Some of these stores will never be the same.

Rachel: What did I miss?

Loretta: Oh, you should have been there, Rachel.

Amanda: We had such a wonderful time.

Rachel: Well, so did the shops, by the look of it.

Loretta: We picked up a few things, and this one is for you.

Rachel: Oh, Loretta. For me?

Loretta: It says "for Rachel, with many thanks and much appreciation." It's from me, sincerely.

Rachel: Oh, you shouldn't have. What a sweet thing to do.

Loretta: It's just a token, nothing grand.

Sam: Oh, great.

Amanda: What's your problem?

Sam: My mother. She's up to her old tricks.

Ada: Hi, honey.

Jamie: Hi, grandma.

Scott: Bachelor party?

Jamie: Yeah, for Sam. My place. Lisa's and my place.

Scott: Well, I tell you, it sounds good, except I don't really know the guy.

Jamie: Well, there's not a lot of people in Bay City who do, to tell you the truth.

Scott: Hmm. I haven't exactly been going out a lot lately.

Jamie: Might do Dawn some good for her to see you keeping up with your own life.

Scott: Well, I'll tell you, why don't you let me know what I have to do.

Jamie: First, I have to let Lisa know what's going on.

Jamie: Ahem.

[Phone rings]

Lisa: Excuse me. Hello?

Jamie: Hi.

Lisa: Hi, Jamie.

Jamie: You sound busy.

Lisa: All I said was "Jamie."

Jamie: Yeah, well, I guess I was expecting you and Adam to still be working.

Lisa: We're almost finished.

Jamie: So he's still there.

Lisa: Yeah.

Jamie: Well, listen, I won't keep you, then. I just want to know if you're working on Friday night.

Lisa: Oh, I might be. Yeah, I think so. Why?

Jamie: Well, I've made some plans.

Lisa: Oh. So it's good that I'm working?

Jamie: Yeah, it's fine. Listen, I've got to run. I'll see you later.

Lisa: So I'm going to be working nights on this?

Adam: Weekdays, but not on the weekends.

Lisa: Not Friday?

Adam: No. Why?

Lisa: Jamie's made plans for Friday, and now I'm free.

Adam: Well, call him back and tell him. I'm sure he'll change his plans.

Lisa: Yeah, right.

Adam: Well, look, I got to go. I'll call you later.

Lisa: Ok. Bye.

Jamie: Lisa's tied to work, so the party's definitely at my place.

Scott: Friday night?

Jamie: Yeah, I'm going to make some phone calls now. I'll just use the bar phone.

Jamie's voice: You're doing it again.

Lisa's voice: Jamie, I can take care of myself.

Jamie's voice: I know you can take care of yourself.

Lisa: Everybody treats me like this porcelain doll.

Jamie: I am not treating you like a porcelain doll.

Lisa: You are. You do. You always --

Jamie: Always what?

Lisa: You always want to make all the decisions.

Jamie: What decisions?

Lisa: Everything. My job. You didn't want me to work at the police station.

Jamie: That's not true.

Lisa: You didn't like it.

Jamie: I didn't like the idea of you taking on a job that was dangerous.

Lisa: Oh, no, Lisa needs protecting.

Jamie: I just didn't want to see you get involved in something that you weren't qualified for.

Lisa: Oh, I see. Now I don't qualify for anything.

Jamie: No, I didn't say that!

Lisa: All Lisa's good for is cooking Jamie's dinner and waiting for him to come home from the hospital and bringing him his cocoa.

Lisa: Julie Ann, hi. It's Lisa. Hi. Well, I was wondering, if you haven't already planned it, I'd like to throw a bridal shower for Amanda. This Friday. Right here at my apartment.

Jason: Mary, you got a minute?

Mary: I'm kind of running behind schedule.

Jason: I'm sorry. I'm wrong. I apologize. I was totally out of line. I'm sorry.

Mary: Well, I don't know what I expected you to do.

Jason: It was just too weird, all the stuff with Reginald being over so quickly -- I didn't know how to handle it. We made a mighty good team, you and I.

Mary: I think I owe you an apology, too. I guess I overreacted.

Jason: Let's just forget it ever happened. It's history. Go on.

Mary: Ok.

Jason: Thank you. I'm sorry. I apologize. See you around.

Ada: Hi there.

[Mary gasps]

Ada: What are you so jumpy about?

Mary: I didn't hear you come in.

Ada: You must have been thinking about something important.

Bianca: Well, that's --

Mary: A lot has happened the past couple of weeks.

Ada: You got your memory back, for one thing.

Mary: And remembering myself as I was before Reginald re-created me.

Ada: That must be very hard.

Mary: It's not easy.

Ada: Mary, listen -- everybody does stupid things when they're young. If that's what's bothering you --

Mary: What's bothering me is how little I've changed.

Ada: Oh, you mean you're still nice, you're a good friend, you're a great mother -- is that so hard to take?

Mary: It's -- it's more of a side of me that I'm just recognizing again.

Ada: What, do you steal hubcaps or what?

Mary: No, it has to do with the men I was drawn to.

Ada: Oh, men. What about them?

Mary: When I first met Vince, he was -- oh, I don't know -- a little mysterious, a bit of a rebel. Quiet, angry. My parents could not stand him.

Ada: But you could.

Mary: Oh, I was crazy about him. And then we married, and he became this wonderful husband and fantastic father, and so I got involved with Reginald.

Ada: Another rebel.

Mary: Yeah. So maybe I just was always drawn to men who seemed mysterious and dangerous.

Ada: Well, you're a little older now and a little wiser. Maybe that won't happen again.

Mary: No. Not again.

John: How'd it go at Mary's Place?

Jason: Went just fine.

John: Really?

Jason: Yeah. I apologized.

John: And she accepted?

Jason: Yeah, she's an all right broad.

John: That's high praise.

Jason: Where are you going?

John: I've got a little unfinished business to attend to.

Jason: What'd you do, take my advice?

John: As a matter of fact, yeah. I'm going to go and have a little heart-to-heart with my brother.

Rachel: Oh, Loretta, it's beautiful.

Loretta: And don't say I shouldn't have. When I see something that's perfect for someone -- wait till you see what I got for Amanda.

Amanda: I bet it'd look great on the mantle.

Sam: Wait a second, ma.

Loretta: Wait for what?

Sam: Keep your voice down.

Loretta: What's the problem?

Sam: You know what the problem is.

Loretta: I am trying to do something nice for someone.

Sam: Ok, then let me see the sales receipts.

Loretta: Don't you start with me because I don't want to hear it.

Rachel: Isn't it pretty?
