Sam: My mother's been arrested?

Adam: I'm sorry to have to tell you that. Look, it's probably just a mistake --

Sam: Adam, I -- look, I just wish -- I'm sorry.

Adam: Look, if you want, I can have Mitch go down and check it out for you.

Sam: No, I don't -- he doesn't even -- I got to take care of this, ok? I have to take care of this.

Adam: Like I said, it's probably just a mistake of some kind. I'm sure we can get it all straightened out.

Sam: No, it's not a mistake. My mother's been arrested for shoplifting, right?

Mary: Jason.

Jason: Mary, hi. Sit down. Join me.

Mary: Thank you.

Jason: Came by to say goodbye to your old neighbor, huh?

Mary: What?

Jason: I'm moving out from upstairs.

Mary: Oh, your house is livable?

Jason: Uh-huh, and tonight will be my first night at the farm.

Mary: Congratulations.

Jason: Thanks.

Mary: I'll have to come by and bring you some -- I think it's bread and salt.

Jason: Well, I guess you will, yeah.

Mary: I owe you a big thank-you.

Jason: For what, almost getting you killed?

Mary: No. For getting me back a big chunk of my life that was missing. I really, really owe you.

Jason: I guess you do. Got anything in mind in the way of showing appreciation?

Mary: I just said thank you.

Jason: Yeah, but I figured you ought to show your gratitude, and "thank you" is two words.

Mary: Did you have something in mind?

Jason: How about buying me dinner?

Cass: Keep your head down.

Nicole: Trees! We're going right into the trees! Oh, what is he doing? Isn't there an emergency --

Cass: Stay -- no, no! Stay strapped in! Nicole, it's too late! We're flying too low. He's probably trying to land.

Nicole: Oh, Cass!

Cass: Hang on!

Mary: When did you have in mind for this gratitudinal meal?

Jason: Tonight.

Mary: You don't waste time, do you?

Jason: No, no. No, I don't. So?

Waitress: Ok. You got your double-decker deluxe with extra cheese.

Jason: Can I cancel that?

Waitress: You don't want it?

Jason: I just am in the midst of getting a little better offer here.

Waitress: Oh, ok. You know, I've been meaning to try one of these.

Mary: Ok, sailor, one dinner.

Jason: Thank you, ma'am. Thank you, ma'am. Thank you very much.

Mary: I will go up and get ready, and I think that you should just make reservations for us.

Jason: Oh, I'll take care of that, you bet.

Mary: However, I have absolutely no intention of buying dinner for myself in some greasy spoon, so try and make a reservation someplace that has a little class.

Jason: I am very classy, especially with a lady's money.

Vince: Jason.

Jason: Hi, Vinny.

Vince: I'm back.

Jason: Yeah. Yeah, I see. Did you have a nice trip?

Vince: Yeah, it was great. It was great.

Jason: I'm sure you're a little sore --

Vince: Have I said anything?

Jason: Hey, you didn't have to. Before you left, we were not exactly seeing eye to eye, were we?

Vince: That's because you weren't telling me the truth.

Jason: I didn't want Mary getting hurt. I didn't want you to get involved --

Vince: She called me in Minneapolis. So, you finally put Reggie away for good, huh?

Jason: I guess that's how it come down, yeah.

Vince: I guess I can't blame you for that, huh?

Jason: Hope not.

Vince: I was just concerned about Mary.

Jason: Me, too.

Vince: Now she's got her memory back, right?

Jason: Hey, isn't that great?

Vince: And I guess I owe you for that.

Jason: You do?

Vince: And, you know, I was thinking maybe Mary and I can have a fresh start now, you know?

Jason: Yeah. Yeah.

Vince: You know, because I was just up seeing M.J., you know, helping her get started with the restaurant --

Jason: Mary told me about that.

Vince: Just seeing M.J., it really struck me that I'm close to my family, you know, being all together with Mary back.

Jason: Yeah, yeah.

Vince: And that's something nobody can take away from me.

Jason: No, no, no.

Vince: So, what do you say? Are you glad for me?

Jason: Oh, you bet. I'm real happy.

Mary: Vince.

Vince: Hey.

Mary: You're back.

Vince: Hey.

Mary: Hey.

Vince: Oh! You don't know how good it feels to be home.

Adam: Yeah, she was arrested for shoplifting, but how did you know? Did somebody tell you?

Sam: Look, I'll take care of it, ok?

Adam: Sure.

Sam: I'll talk to the store manager and make sure that he drops the charges.

Adam: It's just that some of the store managers take a pretty -- this has happened before.

Sam: Yeah, it has. It's not the easiest thing to talk about.

Adam: That's ok.

Sam: I mean, hey, man, she's my mother.

Adam: Look, I'll -- I'll do what I can.

Amanda: Sam? Hi. Is something wrong?

Sam: No, we're just talking.

Adam: I'll get the coats.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: What is it?

Sam: Nothing. There's just something I got to take care of.

Amanda: With Adam? I mean, the police?

Sam: Look, I really can't talk about it right now, ok?

Amanda: Why not?

Sam: Look, it's just a problem with my mother. I have to straighten things out, all right?

Amanda: A problem with the police?

Sam: I don't want to ruin your bridal shower. Don't worry about me. I can take care of this. I'll be back in a little while, ok?

Amanda: No, no, I don't understand.

Sam: Look, don't tell anyone, ok?

Amanda: Tell them what? Sam, I don't know anything.

Sam: Don't worry about it.

Amanda: Adam, what's going on?

Sam: Look, just go back inside, ok? Ok?

Nicole: Oh, Cass! Cass -- Cass, we're on fire!

Cass: We're down.

Cass: Nicole?

[Cass coughs]

Cass: Nicole? Nicole?

Nicole: Cass!

Cass: Nicole? Nicole? Nicole! Nicole!

Cass: I can't get the door open, Nicole! Can you push it? Nicole? Nicole? Nicole! No. This can't happen. No! No!

Cass: This can't happen! No!

[Cass coughs]

Cass: Kathleen!

Nicole: Cass?

Cass: Come on. Come on, we got to get out of here. This place is going to go up any second. Hey, I got the door open! Come on, you guys, get out of there! Come on, help me. Come on, you got to help me.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: Go, go! Watch it, watch it.

Cass: Wait, wait, wait. Come on, you got to give me some help.

Cass: Come on, breathe. Are you breathing? Are you breathing? That's it. We made it! We made it! Stay here for a second. I got to go back and see if I can find the pilot and the guard, ok?

Nicole: Uh-huh.

Cass: Don't move. They may be trapped.

[Explosion]

Officer: Ma'am, the brooch was in your purse when you exited the store.

Loretta: I know that. Don't you think I know that? My goodness, is being forgetful a crime in this city?

Officer: No, ma'am.

Loretta: The manager wouldn't listen. Don't you think he owed me the courtesy of at least listening to my explanation? Oh, no, he wasn't interested in anything I had to say. He just wanted to call the police.

Adam: Mrs. Fowler? Detective Sergeant Adam Cory.

Loretta: Cory?

Adam: That's right. Thanks, pal.

Officer: Report's on your desk.

Adam: Thank you.

Loretta: Are -- are you one of Mac Cory's sons?

Adam: His nephew.

Loretta: Oh. Oh, this is all so embarrassing, and it -- all because of a mistake.

Adam: Was it?

Loretta: Well, of course it was. And now I have missed Amanda's shower, all because of that nasty little man.

Adam: The manager.

Loretta: It was such a lovely brooch, an antique. It reminded me of a prop I once used in "Royal Family." Did you ever see that play, sergeant?

Adam: No, ma'am, I don't believe I ever did.

Loretta: What happens now?

Adam: I'll make a call, and then I'll see what I can do. Stay here, please. Come in for a minute.

Sam: Thanks.

Loretta: It was all a mistake.

Sam: Mom, please.

Loretta: Well, it was.

Sam: It's all happening again.

Loretta: What's happening?

Sam: Come on!

Loretta: Well, I don't know what you mean.

Sam: It's the same old thing, ma.

Loretta: Sam, there is no need for you to even be here. It was just a silly mistake, and that nice, young sergeant --

Sam: It wasn't a silly mistake.

Loretta: Well, of course it was.

Sam: The only difference from now to the other times is the fact that the stores don't know you. They're pressing charges, Mom.

Loretta: Oh, I should certainly hope not.

Sam: Mom!

Loretta: I can hire a lawyer and sue for slander just as quick as the next person. This is not the same thing. It's -- it's really an innocent mistake. I just -- I forgot. It's not what happened before. Honestly, it isn't.

Sam: This is why, Mom.

Loretta: Why what?

Sam: Maybe you were wondering why I didn't want you at my wedding. This is why.

Loretta: But I told you that --

Sam: I was hoping that this wouldn't happen, but it's exactly what's happening, Mom.

Loretta: Why won't you believe me?

Sam: I love Amanda, and I refuse to have her embarrassed every time she hears your name.

Loretta: As you are?

Sam: Don't you start with me, mom. Don't you even start.

Loretta: I can go back to Seattle, if that's what you want. I'll leave tonight.

Sam: You're going to make this my fault, aren't you?

Loretta: I just want to know what you want.

Sam: I was willing to have you here until tonight.

Loretta: And now?

Sam: I want you to leave.

Mary: She looks happy.

Vince: Yeah, and pretty. I guess -- let's see -- maybe she gets that from her mother.

Mary: Oh, you.

Jason: I should have remembered, you know. I'm really sorry, I forgot all about it.

Vince: What?

Jason: This guy's coming by to look at my barn tonight and --

Mary: I thought we were going to --

Jason: Hey, I think you two need some time to get things straightened out, ok?

Vince: Yeah, you know, it feels like I've been gone for a couple months.

Jason: Well, you have a great evening, ok?

Vince: Yeah, see you.

Jason: All right.

Mary: Good night, Jason.

Jason: Good night.

Vince: I straightened things out with him.

Mary: You did?

Vince: Yeah, I was pretty angry with him before I left.

Mary: Just because you threatened to break him in half if anything happened to me?

Vince: I didn't say that. Well, not exactly in those words.

Mary: Well, at least you straightened it out with him.

Vince: Yeah, yeah.

Mary: She's really ok?

Vince: Oh, yeah, she's great. She's great. And I think the restaurant's going to do ok.

Mary: Well, sure. She had expert help.

Vince: Hmm. And I don't know if I should have let you talk me into going in up there because you went through a lot down here.

Mary: It's ok. At least Reginald's going to start paying for what he's done.

Vince: Some of what he's done.

Mary: Yeah. Let's don't talk about dreary stuff. Let's -- tell me about the restaurant.

Vince: Oh, it's terrific. Oh, the inside -- wait a minute, wait till you see the inside. I got a picture of it here somewhere.

[Mary laughs]

Vince: What?

Mary: You haven't changed. You always used to take so many pictures of the kids, we'd practically have to steal the camera.

Vince: Well, you know, a few every once in a while.

Mary: Right. And then you'd forget to take them to get developed.

Vince: I still do.

Mary: What is it?

Vince: You, remembering the way we were and all the little things. Hey, it gets to me, you know.

Mary: Yeah, it does to me, too. I'll bet she was glad to see you walk through the door.

Vince: Oh, yeah. And, what's more, she admitted it.

Mary: Did you guys talk?

Vince: Yeah, yeah. She's still a little -- you know, a little nervous about her mistake.

Mary: Does she know that you forgive her?

Vince: Oh, I'm sure she does, yeah. But she's still a little worried about Adam. He was pretty rough on her.

Mary: Vince, what about me?

Vince: What?

Mary: Do you forgive me?

Lisa: This place was not meant to hold that many people.

Jamie: Oh, I thought it was kind of fun.

Lisa: You think it was fun that we both planned parties and didn't tell each other?

Jamie: Well, yeah. Not that we didn't tell each other, no, but having a shower and a bachelor party in the same room was --

Lisa: Weird.

Jamie: It was different.

Lisa: Crowded.

Jamie: You're not going to agree to anything I say tonight, are you?

Lisa: Sorry.

Jamie: Everybody seemed to have a good time.

Lisa: Think so?

Jamie: The strippers, they were -- they were different.

Lisa: To say the least.

Jamie: A couple that strips together stays together.

Lisa: That's catchy.

Jamie: You know, I think everybody had a better time this way.

Lisa: You think so?

Jamie: Well, I mean, how many times have you been to a bachelor party?

Lisa: Well, I know there was one female guest who probably would have preferred being at the bachelor party anyway.

Jamie: What?

Lisa: Nothing.

Jamie: Oh, come on. What?

Lisa: Nothing.

Jamie: Yes, it was. What was it?

Lisa: Ok, it was Vicky.

Jamie: What about Vicky?

Lisa: She had her eyes glued to you all night.

Jamie: Oh, she did not.

Lisa: Yes, she did. I'm not blind.

Jamie: Why would she be watching me?

Lisa: Jamie, I don't care what she says, she's after you.

Jamie: In my own house, with you here?

Lisa: Yes, and you better do something about her -- unless maybe you don't want to.

Jamie: Hey, what is this?

Lisa: Don't think about it. Just answer the question.

Jamie: Am I interested in Vicky? No.

Lisa: You don't like it that she hangs on your every word?

Jamie: She does that with everybody.

Lisa: She does not. She looked right through Adam, and Nathan couldn't get her to pass the chips.

Jamie: Oh, come on.

Lisa: I'm serious.

Jamie: Listen, all I am to Vicky is a friend.

Lisa: Well, then you should make that clear to her.

Jamie: Look, Donna's in the hospital. The Love mansion just burned down. She's had a tough time these past few days.

Lisa: I am very, very sorry about that, but I'm also sick and tired of watching her bat her eyes at you.

Jamie: I don't care what she bats at me, I am not interested. Can I make it plainer than that?

Lisa: No.

Jamie: Good. Then it's settled, right?

Lisa: I guess so.

Jamie: Come here. Give me a kiss. So, Vicky had her eyes glued to my body all night, huh?

Loretta: All right, I'm not going to keep repeating myself. You just believe what you want.

Sam: Mom, I lived with this as long as I could, but now I've got a wife. I've got a baby on the way.

Loretta: I know, and I think it's wonderful.

Sam: You're not listening to me.

Loretta: Of course I am. I love you, and I want to see you happy.

Sam: Do I look happy to you right about now?

Loretta: I -- I love you.

Sam: It doesn't wash, Mom. You can't use that phrase every time it's convenient.

Loretta: I do love you. Isn't that what counts?

Sam: No, it's not that simple. I honestly believed that this wouldn't happen, that I wouldn't be telling you this.

Loretta: I --

Sam: Do you think I like telling my own mother to leave town?

Loretta: I don't understand why you're making such a fuss over a mistake.

Sam: It's not just a mistake! It's the same old thing.

Loretta: Well, I am certainly not one to stay where I am not wanted.

Sam: Mom, look, I don't want to see you hurt.

Loretta: No, it's all right. I'll go back to Seattle in the morning.

Sam: Mom, listen to me. I wish that you and I --

Loretta: I want you to say goodbye to Amanda for me, and, oh, tell her how fond I am of her and how -- how welcome she's made me feel and --

[Cass coughs]

Cass: Poor guy never had a chance. Nicole? Nicole? Nicole? Hey, hey, hey. Nicole? Come on, Nicole. You're breathing. Come on. Hey, Nicole. We made it this far, honey. Come on. You're going to be all right. Hey. Can you wake up? Nicole? Come on! It's me. It's Cass. Come on, I need you. That's it. Come on. You're still awake now. Come on, please. I got you. You're with CASS. It's me. Come on. You're going to be all right.

Nicole: What?

Cass: The plane crashed.

Nicole: The plane --

Cass: Yeah. We went down. Do you remember?

Nicole: Are we dead?

Cass: No. I got you out.

Nicole: Oh!

Cass: This time, I was there.

Cass: The plane exploded. Do you remember that? Huh?

Nicole: No, I -- what about -- what about those two men?

Cass: Shh. The pilot was stuck in the cockpit. He never had a chance.

Nicole: Oh!

Cass: I don't know about the security guard. I -- can you move?

Nicole: Um -- I can -- no, barely. Oh, are you all right?

Cass: I think I used up one of my nine lives, but I -- I think I'm ok.

[Thunder]

Nicole: Oh, no, it's going to rain.

Cass: Yeah, it looks that way, doesn't it?

Nicole: Cass, those men.

Cass: Hey, let's worry about you, ok? All right?

Nicole: I'm just -- I'm just weak. Oh. Cass?

Cass: What?

Nicole: There was a fire.

Cass: We got out, we got out.

Nicole: You came -- you came in to get me, right?

Cass: Let's not think about that right now. We got to find ourselves some shelter.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: Come on.

Nicole: Ok. I can walk. I can walk. Ow! Oh, I can't. I can't.

Cass: Not yet anyway. Ok. Well, this is as good a place as any to build a shelter, I guess. Will you be all right here for a few minutes while I look for some stuff to cover us up?

Nicole: I'll be fine. I'll be fine. Are you ok? Are you sure?

Cass: Yeah. Listen, I know this ain't Monte Carlo, but I'm going to take care of you, ok?

Nicole: Ok. Ok.

Cass: All right.

Jamie: Come on, I think we should get this out in the open.

Lisa: Sorry I pushed you.

Jamie: Forget about it. I think I was the one who did the pushing. I mean, you're obviously still very upset, and no more kidding around.

Lisa: You remember how you felt about Andre.

Jamie: Andre is probably a paid killer. Vicky, on the other hand, is --

Lisa: Is a sultry blonde with enormous eyes. And they're always looking at you.

Jamie: Vicky is a very needy person.

Lisa: Tell me about it.

Jamie: And maybe she has kind of followed me around.

Lisa: And you haven't noticed?

Jamie: Hey, look, I mean, if somebody flirts a lot, that doesn't mean they're necessarily hot for you, you know?

Lisa: Let me interpret for you, Jamie. She wants you.

Jamie: Ok, maybe. Maybe she does.

Lisa: No "maybe" about it.

Jamie: Listen, I guess I just thought that it was her way of showing that she wanted to be friends.

Lisa: Oh, with friends like that, who needs lovers?

Jamie: I still don't understand what you're worried about.

Lisa: You don't?

Jamie: Vicky could do the dance of the seven veils on this table right here, and it wouldn't mean a thing to me.

Lisa: To who?

Jamie: To me. Because I love you. Understand? Very much. There's no one that even remotely interests me.

Sam: What are you doing here?

Amanda: I just got worried.

Loretta: Hello, Amanda.

Amanda: Hi. Are you all right?

Loretta: Oh, my goodness, yes. My attitude is forgive and forget. When someone makes a mistake --

Sam: Will you stop that!

Adam: Amanda. Could I ask you to step outside for a few minutes?

Amanda: Yeah, sure.

Adam: It'll just take a second.

Adam: Ok, Mrs. Fowler, I talked to the store manager, and he's agreed to drop the charges --

Loretta: Well, I should think so.

Adam: On one condition -- that you never enter his store again. Do you agree to that?

Loretta: Well, who'd want to go there, anyway?

Adam: Fine.

Loretta: Especially since I'm leaving Bay City the first thing in the morning. Now, if it's all right with you, I'd like to go back to the Corys' and begin packing.

Adam: You are free to go, Mrs. Fowler, but --

Loretta: Well, thank you so much for your kindness, sergeant. Excuse me.

Amanda: Loretta.

Loretta: Oh. You are so sweet to worry about me.

Amanda: What I --

Loretta: I think Sam is the luckiest man I know. And I want to thank you for your generosity to me. When I get back to Seattle, my times in Bay City are going in as the best times of my life.

Amanda: Wait, wait -- you're not really leaving, are you?

Loretta: I think you better talk to Sam.

Amanda: Loretta -- Sam, do something.

Sam: Come on.

Amanda: She said that she's leaving Bay City.

Sam: Let's get out of here, ok?

Amanda: Sam, why --

Sam: I want to go home.

Amanda: Why would you let your mother leave? Why?

Sam: Come on.

Vince: All the while I was driving home, driving through Wisconsin --

Mary: Mm-hmm.

Vince: I was thinking about us. Do you know time may be good to us?

Mary: You mean because I'm remembering?

Vince: Yeah. I don't have to tell you what we had. You remember.

Mary: Do you know what I just remembered?

Vince: What?

Mary: The first time you ever made Irish stew.

Vince: Oh, yeah? Huh.

Mary: Yeah. Yeah. I -- I was pregnant with Kathleen. And I had gone out to see my mother, and I came back and you had made dinner.

Vince: Irish stew?

Mary: Uh-huh.

Vince: Was it good?

Mary: It was a good first try.

Vince: It was bad?

Mary: I don't remember.

Vince: Oh, I see the way things are going to go from now on.

Mary: What?

Vince: Mm-hmm. What you want to remember, you'll remember, and conveniently you'll forget everything else.

Mary: Isn't that what everybody does?

Vince: Yeah, I guess they do.

Mary: I remember when I first knew I was pregnant.

Vince: Ah! I remember when you told me about it.

Mary: Yeah, you were working on the car.

Vince: And you gave me the news, I went boom.

[Mary laughs]

Vince: I got a knot, it must have lasted weeks.

Mary: Those were rough years.

Vince: Yeah, but we made out.

Mary: I do remember every baby. And I remember every trip to the hospital in the old Studebaker.

Vince: Now, that was a car.

Mary: But it wasn't all wonderful.

Vince: You know what you asked me before about forgiving you?

Mary: We had some very bad times, Vince, and those feelings of resentment can drive people apart.

Vince: Or people can forgive each other and become even closer.

Sam: So, did you get a lot of presents?

Amanda: Look, I didn't say anything on the way over here --

Sam: I mean, it looked like you had a whole big stack over there.

Amanda: I don't want to talk about that.

Sam: Ok, fine. Ok.

Amanda: Why was your mother arrested?

Sam: I don't want to talk about that.

Amanda: Sam, we have to talk about it. She said she was going to leave Bay City.

Sam: Yes, she is.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: Look, don't push this one, ok?

Amanda: Sam? You know you can tell me anything, right?

Sam: This is none of your business.

Amanda: None -- none of my business? How dare you say that to me!

Sam: I didn't mean it that way --

Amanda: We're going to be getting married in a couple of days. I'm going to be a part of your family. You're going to be a part of mine.

Sam: Look, it's not something that I'm --

Amanda: Weren't you the one that was talking about being honest?

Sam: It's not something --

Amanda: Let's just be honest here. There is obviously something wrong between you and your mother. You can't deny that. I mean, look at this. This is the present that your mother got you. You haven't even opened it yet. What is wrong with you?

Sam: I don't want to see it! I don't care what's in it!

Amanda: Sam, your mother bought you --

Sam: She didn't buy it, she stole it!

Cass: Hey, what's that?

Nicole: This was in my blue evening gown. It was the one I finished, you know, right at the end.

Cass: Yeah. Well, hey, I got a roof over our heads, not to mention some stuff to keep our roof from leaking.

Nicole: Yeah? Oh, great. You know, I could help you. Why don't I just get --

Cass: No, no, no, no, no. No, you stay right here. We'll get you walking tomorrow. You just rest. I want to see what else I can salvage, ok? I'll be back.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass' voice: Kathleen!

Cass: You cold?

Nicole: Oh, well, I have been warmer.

Cass: Yeah? Well, I'll get more later, ok?

Nicole: Ok.

Nicole: Cass?

Cass: What?

Nicole: Shouldn't we try to find those -- I mean, the two men in the plane?

Cass: I already checked. The pilot is definitely dead. The security guard, I couldn't see him anywhere, so I -- I have to wait until tomorrow. I'll look some more. I tried to send a distress signal on the radio.

Nicole: Did you?

Cass: Well, it's pretty badly burned. I'll have to check it again.

Nicole: In the morning?

Cass: Right. You're shivering.

Nicole: Oh. You just -- we'll get warm. Oh, just hold me close, ok?

Cass: Ok. What are you thinking?

Nicole: I was thinking about Donna.

Cass: Yeah? I was thinking about Felicia.

Nicole: Cass, they'll think we're dead.

Cass: No, no. No way. They are going to send out a search party the likes of which we've never seen. Half the French air force is going to be out looking for us.

Nicole: Oh, does France have an air force?

Cass: Sort of. And tomorrow, we'll go looking for help. I mean, there are bound to be villas and spas. This is an island.

Nicole: Yeah, they'll have a radio.

Cass: Yeah, somebody's got to have a radio.

Nicole: Yeah, then they can signal for help and we'll be ok.

Cass: Yeah. We will. All we have to do is make it through the night.

Nicole: Right.

[Thunder]

Bianca: Well, that's --

Amanda: She stole it? How do you know that?

Sam: Because I know.

Amanda: So that's why she was at the police station.

Sam: Because of this? No, not because of this. This one she probably stole in Seattle. I'm sorry. This isn't exactly easy to talk about.

Amanda: But we've got to. I -- I have to know. I can't help you if I don't know.

Sam: You can't help. Nobody can help. That's the problem.

Amanda: I can try.

Sam: Ok. Sit down. It started after mom took all the pills.

Amanda: She started stealing?

Sam: No, she started giving me presents.

Amanda: Because you saved her life?

Sam: I don't know. I thought it was because that rich guy dumped her -- you know, she had gotten used to the rich life? Except it got to the point where she'd go into a store and she'd steal anything. Stupid stuff, expensive stuff. It just didn't matter to her.

Amanda: How did you find out?

Sam: She got arrested, just like tonight. I spent years, hon -- I'm talking years -- going to store managers and begging them not to press charges, bailing her out of jail, returning stuff, covering this up.

Amanda: Oh, Sam.

Sam: You know, it got to the point where the stores wouldn't call the cops, they'd call me. And I'd find out whatever she stole, and I'd return it.

Amanda: That must have been so hard for you.

Sam: Yeah. I'd walk into those stores, and the clerks -- they would look at me like I was a roach or something.

Amanda: Maybe we can get her to go to a psychiatrist or something.

Sam: I tried that. Don't you think I tried that? She won't go. She won't even admit there's a problem.

Amanda: Sorry.

Sam: Look, I don't -- I don't mean to take this out on you, ok?

Amanda: Well, you've been keeping it inside all this time.

Sam: You know, it got to the point where I'd walk into a store and people would poke each other and point at me. And behind my back, they'd make these jokes about the klepto. She won't even talk about it. Look, just -- ok? I don't want you to feel sorry for me. I don't want that. I don't need it.

Amanda: So you handled this all by yourself?

Sam: Yeah. Until I figured out what to do, and that was get the hell out.

Amanda: But, Sam, she's your mother. Maybe we can get her --

Sam: No. I am not responsible for this one anymore. I've got my own life to lead. I am not going to be responsible for her.

Amanda: Sam, she came here for our wedding.

Sam: I don't care.

Amanda: Yes, you do.

Sam: What?

Amanda: Don't you think I know you? I love you. I can see when you're in pain.

Sam: Look, I don't want to -- I've done all --

Amanda: Sam, listen to me. You just told me something that you've been keeping inside for a long time. And you know that there is a reason why it's still tearing you up.

Sam: Yeah -- I'm ashamed of her. Is that what you want me to say, that I'm ashamed of my own mother?

Amanda: No, the reason is that you still love her.

Cass: I found another blanket.

Nicole: Thanks. Oh, it smells of smoke.

Cass: Well, I'll speak to the maid tomorrow morning.

Nicole: Please do.

Cass: Yes.

[Thunder]

Cass: I got so tired once I got inside the plane.

Nicole: I don't ever want to go in there again.

Cass: Not if you don't like the smell of smoke, you don't.

Nicole: Cass?

Cass: Yeah?

Nicole: Are we going to make it?

Cass: One step at a time. Tonight first, and I'll build you a castle tomorrow.

Nicole: I'd be dead now, like that pilot --

Cass: Let's just get some rest, ok?

Cass: You cold? Huh? Are you cold?

Nicole: I'm ok. Thanks.

Cass: Are you scared? I used to sing myself to sleep when I was scared.

Nicole: You did?

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: How old were you?

Cass: Oh, 31, 32.

Nicole: Come on.

Cass: When I was 4 or 5, I guess, my mother taught me a lullaby. I used to pull the blanket up and --

hush, little baby don't say a word mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird and if that mockingbird don't sing

Nicole: I've never heard anyone sing so badly in my life.

Cass: Shut up. Listen or sing, but don't make any wise cracks, ok?

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: If that mockingbird don't sing

Cass and Nicole: Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring

Cass: And if that diamond ring turns brass

Cass and Nicole: Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass and if that looking glass gets broke mama's going to buy you a billy goat

Cass: And if that billy goat won't pull mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull and if that cart and bull fall down you'll still be the prettiest little baby in town

Cass: Hush, little baby don't say a word mama's gonna buy you.
