Felicia: That and that. Ok, now, Cheryl, we will need all the models there, I'd say, two hours before the doors open.

Cheryl: Ok.

Felicia: Ok? Oh, and Cass and Nicole will be back today.

Cheryl: Great. Have you heard from them?

Felicia: Not about the opening, no, but I'm assuming that everything is going to go right on schedule -- at least it better be. Ok.

Vince: All right, right. Ok. What is this, want ads?

Mary: Want ads, yes.

Vince: What for?

Mary: I'm looking for a job.

Vince: Why? You got a job, pays good money.

Mary: I also have a degree in social work. I'd like to use it.

Vince: Yeah, well, Michael's been very supportive.

Mary: Michael has been fantastic, but he's always known I wouldn't want to be his executive assistant forever, besides which, I'm not going to leave him without giving him time to get somebody else.

Vince: Well, what kind of openings are there?

Mary: Not a whole heck of a lot. I guess I should go see the Department of Social Services.

Vince: You know, there's always a job here for you.

Mary: No, thank you.

Vince: I don't mean just waitressing, you know.

Mary: Thank you. I want to do social work.

Vince: Ah. Well, do you want to stay around and have a bite to eat?

Mary: No. No, I can't.

Vince: Why not? Hey, we're featuring chicken cacciatore.

Mary: I can't, Vince. I have to go.

Jason: Hey, don't. Stay, have some lunch.

Zach: If you can just delay this trip to Venice for a month or so, Scott.

Scott: I can't. I can't, Zach. This is something that has to happen right now, ok?

Zach: No, frankly, it's not ok. We got a backlog of work here.

Scott: Dawn is going to come in here any second now, and there's no way I'm going to tell her this trip is off.

Zach: Look, if you had just given me at least some notice --

Scott: I'm sorry, I'm sorry --

Zach: A month or something.

Scott: I'm sorry, I'm sorry! I'm sorry this is so sudden, but this has finally given her something to live for.

Zach: I'm not saying you can't go. All I'm asking for is a month's notice, one month, Scott.

Dawn: Hi, guys.

Scott: Hey, baby. How you doing?

Dawn: Take these.

Cass: Come on. Will you give it a rest, please?

Reporter: How did you manage to survive?

Second reporter: Ms. Love, what about your designs?

Cass: Listen, we will make -- we will make a Press statement later.

Reporter: Is it true that your father was responsible for the crash?

Nicole: What?

Reporter: Today's paper said you're opening as scheduled.

Nicole: It does?

Cass: Give us a chance to breathe, will you?

Nicole: What does the paper say?

Reporter: Haven't you seen the ad?

Nicole: No, I haven't.

Cass: Ok, come on, that's enough. Everybody out.

Reporter: Now, what about Reginald Love?

Cass: Out! Let's go.

Reporter: We have reports --

Cass: Out!

Reporter: Of Interpol that he was directly connected --

Cass: No more questions. The salon will open on schedule.

Reporter: Ms. Love, are you going to --

Cass: Please, goodbye!

Reporter: We need to know --

Cass: I don't want to have to get physical with you people, but get out of here! Goodbye! Out! Paparazzi! Boy. Boy. Look at all the work that John and his guys did.

Nicole: Yeah, huh? Boy, I'm going to kill whoever put that ad in the paper.

Cass: Honey, you put that ad in the paper.

Nicole: Have you got a gun?

Cass: Let's just try to calm down, ok?

Nicole: Oh, Cass, what are we going to do about the salon opening?

Cass: Don't you know?

Nicole: No. Do you?

Cass: No.

Jason: Well, look, did I interrupt something? I mean, if you guys got something planned --

Mary: No.

Jason: Please, I'm gone.

Mary: No, really, I was just about to leave.

Jason: Oh, great. I'm glad you didn't leave.

Felicia: All right, so once I contact Cass and Nicole, I'll be in touch with you, Cheryl, all right?

Cheryl: What? Sorry.

Felicia: And, honey, don't forget the party. I think the models should all be there for that, all right?

Cheryl: Ok.

Felicia: I wonder if we can dress them from the collection. Well, we'll see. Ok.

Cheryl: What did you say? I'm sorry.

Felicia: Oh, nothing, nothing. I'm just thinking out loud. Listen, I'll talk to you later.

Cheryl: Ok.

Felicia: All right.

Cheryl: Thanks.

Felicia: Bye-bye.

Jason: Look, I hope this new job doesn't take all your free time.

Mary: Why?

Jason: You owe me dinner.

Mary: Says who?

Jason: Says me. Don't forget, we're going to have that date. I'm telling you.

Vince: You going to stay for lunch?

Mary: No, I'm not. I'm leaving.

Jason: Hey, the jobs will keep.

Mary: No, they won't. I'll see you guys later.

Vince: Ok. Good luck.

Mary: Thanks.

Jason: Yeah. Happy hunting.

Cheryl: Mom?

Mary: Yeah?

Cheryl: Um --

Mary: What?

Cheryl: You -- what is going on between you and Jason?

Mary: Nothing, honey. Absolutely nothing.

Vince: So, did she tell you about looking for a new job -- social work?

Jason: Yeah, I mean, that's good.

Vince: Why? Why is that?

Jason: Well, whatever would make her happy, I think that's fine, Vinny.

Vince: Oh.

Jason: Look, I didn't come down to enjoy your world-famous coffee. I came down to see you, actually.

Vince: Oh, yeah? Why?

Jason: I need a recommendation.

Vince: What for?

Jason: An attorney. I'm going to need a good one.

[Dawn plays piano]

Scott: I guess we never really settled anything before, did we?

Zach: Nope.

Scott: This is just too important for her, Zach. I'm sorry.

Zach: Yeah.

Scott: If you think you're going to have to fire me because of this, then that's the way it's going to have to be. All right?

Zach: No. I'll work it out.

Scott: Thank you.

Zach: Yeah. Listen, take good care of her.

Scott: I will, man.

Zach: Bon voyage, Dawn.

Dawn: Yeah, right.

Scott: I'll see you later, ok?

Zach: Yeah.

Scott: Thanks again.

Dawn: Are you having a problem with Zach?

Scott: No problem at all.

Dawn: Good. I am really, really looking forward to this trip.

Scott: Me, too.

Dawn: You want to know a fantasy I had?

Scott: What?

Dawn: That this trip was our honeymoon.

Scott: That's nice.

Dawn: The only thing that I'm going to regret is that we never really had a chance to make love. You feel cheated?

Scott: No. Frustrated sometimes.

Dawn: I know, I know. I could tell.

Scott: Listen to me -- there are many ways two people can show each other how they feel, that they love one another.

Dawn: I know. Oh, I love you.

Scott: I love you, too.

[Cass whistles]

Nicole: Well, now we're really in a bind, huh?

Cass: Take it easy.

Nicole: Well, we got some opening coming up here, a half-done building and no designs.

Cass: I thought you saved a few pieces from the wreckage.

Nicole: Oh, sure. We could feature the charred look by Nicole Love.

Cass: Nicole, we can't cancel the opening.

Nicole: Oh, why not, Cass? We have no money. We have manufacturers lined up, but they have nothing to manufacture because we have no orders because we did not have a show in Monte Carlo.

Cass: Come on, slow down, slow down.

Nicole: And those reporters --

Cass: I know. I know. It's all that stuff about your father, isn't it?

Nicole: Oh, no, it's ok, really.

Cass: Are you sure?

Nicole: My father is a big-league criminal. I'm an underworld princess. Maybe that will add to my aura.

Cass: I'm kind of partial to your aura the way it is.

Nicole: Oh, yeah?

Cass: Now, we got to get one thing straight, ok?

Nicole: What?

Cass: We just got back, we don't know what can be salvaged yet and what can't.

Nicole: Well, I have a pretty good idea.

Cass: Just listen to me. And until we have all the facts, we're going to continue as if nothing had changed. You got that?

Nicole: I guess. Who's going to buy it, though?

Cass: Well, first we have to buy it. Now, repeat after me -- nothing's changed.

Nicole: Nothing's changed.

Cass: Firmer -- nothing's changed.

Nicole: Ok, nothing's changed.

Cass: Except us.

Nicole: Yeah. We did.

Cass: Yeah. So, you're my old lady now, you know, and you do what I say, right?

Nicole: Oh, yeah?

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: Right. Well, maybe you'll want to convince me a little.

Cass: I wouldn't mind. Yo, are you awake?

John: Well, make sure it fits next time before you nail it!

Cass: Hi, John.

Nicole: Hi, John.

John: Hey, hey!

Cass: You guys have done an incredible job.

John: We were really worried about you.

Cass: You've really accomplished a lot. We're fine, we're fine.

Nicole: It's nice, it's coming along.

John: Yeah, we've done a few things. Well, listen -- we have done a few things, but we got a lot of problems.

Zach: So, anyway, my apologies.

Woman: Accepted.

Zach: Thank you.

Vince: Zach? Excuse me.

Zach: Oh, hey, Vince. How are you?

Vince: Fine. You know Jason Frame.

Jason: Yeah.

Zach: Sure, we've met.

Jason: Hello, Zach.

Zach: How are you?

Jason: How are you?

Zach: Good. Oh, Julia Blanchard, this is Jason Frame and Vince McKinnon.

Jason: Nice to meet you.

Julia: Hi.

Vince: Julia Blanchard.

Julia: Hello.

Vince: Hi. Listen, I hate to interrupt you, but Jason here has got some legal problems.

Jason: I need a lawyer to help me get my construction company back.

Zach: Ok, well, I'll tell you what, why don't you try and meet me --

Jason: It's actually my brother's company when he was alive, but I think Rachel Cory may have ideas on monopolizing on the name.

Zach: Frame-Harding Construction?

Jason: Yeah. When Steve was alive, it was just Frame Construction, the best one.

Zach: I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Jason: Sorry, what?

Zach: Um -- Quinn Harding was a good friend. And I represent Mac Cory in various interests. I'm sorry, but you're going to have to talk to another lawyer.

Jason: Well, what does that mean, that Cory's got a monopoly on attorneys? I can't talk to --

Zach: It's a conflict of interest.

Jason: Conflict of interest --

Julia: Excuse me. I don't think that Zach is making it quite clear. As an attorney, he is not allowed to represent both sides of a dispute.

Jason: Well, I don't think it's going to really be a dispute, more like a little friendly takeover.

Julia: But Zach is required to avoid even the appearance of any impropriety.

Zach: Ms. Blanchard is an attorney.

Jason: Oh, what are you saying -- that she can represent me and you can't?

Julia: Any lawyer, except Zach, can represent you. If you'd like to discuss it with me, fine.

Jason: Yeah, yeah. That would be good.

Julia: Give me a call.

Jason: Thank you. Thanks very much.

Vince: Oh, listen, again, sorry we interrupted.

Zach: No problem.

Julia: Not at all.

Vince: Ok.

Jason: Zach, I'm sorry. I understand.

Zach: It's ok.

Jason: Thanks.

Zach: So, you really mean to take this case?

Julia: Why not? A friendly little takeover? May be interesting.

Zach: I'm not so hot to go up against you again in court.

Julia: Oh, it'll probably never make it to court. But what's the matter? You figure you won't get lucky twice?

Zach: Always ready with the little jabs, aren't you?

Julia: Wait till you see my uppercut.

Vince: No, all I'm saying is it may not be a smart move to go up against Rachel Cory.

Jason: Why not?

Vince: Well, because she can get pretty tough with somebody who crosses her.

Jason: So can I, Vinny.

[Dawn plays piano]

Scott: Dawn, hon? Dawn? Dawn?

Dawn: Oh, sorry.

Scott: That's ok. I'm going to go to the drugstore and get some things for the trip, ok?

Dawn: Ok.

Scott: Be right back.

[Knock on door]

Chad: Hi.

Scott: Hey. What's up?

Chad: You-all going out?

Scott: Just me, and I'm going to be right back.

Dawn: Hi.

Chad: Hi, sweetie.

Dawn: Can I get you something to drink or something?

Chad: No, no. Thanks. Hey, you look kind of beat.

Dawn: No, I just want to get this finished.

Chad: Well, aren't you leaving in a few hours?

Dawn: Yeah. Yeah, that's ok. I can do it.

Chad: Well, sweetie, what's the rush?

Dawn: It's just I want everyone to have this song.

Chad: That's nice, but, I mean, you got to get going.

Dawn: Chad, it's about saying goodbye. So, don't tell me you're here because I've got to go to the airport yet.

Chad: No, no, no. I just got these from the courier service, and I wanted you to have them.

Dawn: What?

Chad: Check it out.

Dawn: Oh, the opera?

Chad: The opera.

Dawn: Oh. Oh, wow! It's "Tosca."

Chad: I know how much you love it.

Dawn: Chad, did I ever tell you you were terrific?

Chad: You just have a wonderful time.

Dawn: Can you afford this?

Chad: Hey, come on. Don't worry about it. I'm working. I got jobs coming up, money coming in.

Dawn: Did I say thank you?

Chad: Your smile says it all.

Dawn: I have a surprise for you.

Chad: No, no, no --

Dawn: Yes.

Chad: No, this is my surprise. I don't want anything.

Dawn: Ta-da! My brother at age 17.

Chad: Oh, my Lord. Was I that skinny?

Dawn: Look at that nerdy smile. You thought you were so cool.

Chad: Hey, ok, give it back.

Dawn: No.

Chad: Come on.

Dawn: You know what?

Chad: No.

Dawn: I'm going to show it to every girl in Venice and say --

Chad: No, you are not.

Dawn: "This is my brother. Isn't he cute?"

Chad: No, you are not going to show that to anyone!

Dawn: Yes, I am! Yes, I am! Don't!

Chad: Give it to me.

Dawn: Give it back.

Chad: No, what do you --

Dawn: Give it back!

Chad: What in the world do you want this for?

Dawn: Chad, come on, I need it. Give it to me.

Chad: What? Why do you want to take that with you to Venice?

Dawn: Because I love you. I think that it's the nicest smile in the world and that there's no sadness, like now sometimes. You know, it's just Chad. And I wanted to take it with me to remember you when I go away.

Chad: I love you.

Chad: But I want first dibs on this picture when you get home. Ok? When you come home.

Dawn: Yeah -- when I come home.

John: Well, everybody went nuts when we learned that Mike and Felicia had found you guys and that you were all right.

Cass: You got quite a crew on here, John.

John: Yeah, well, I hired a few extra guys to make sure that we'd be open on time.

Nicole: Right.

Cass: Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

Nicole: That was smart.

Cass: Yeah.

John: Listen, did I interrupt something?

Cass: Oh, no, it's ok.

Nicole: Oh, no, please. Oh, don't even think about it. Besides, I was going to go see Donna, so --

Cass: Right. I'll see you.

Nicole: Talk to you later.

Cass: Yeah.

John: Tell her I said hello.

Nicole: Ok, John. Bye.

John: Well, how does it feel to be back?

Cass: There's a little pressure here and there.

John: Yeah, yeah, I guess so. Listen, I need to talk to you about the budget.

Cass: The budget.

John: Yeah, money.

Cass: Yeah. Yeah, money.

John: I need -- need the next payment on our contract so that I can pay these guys and buy more supplies, you know.

Cass: Well, John, I just got back and I haven't had a chance to assess the financial picture yet.

John: Of course, of course. I understand. Must be rough.

Cass: You don't know.

John: But I'm under a lot of pressure from these guys. You know, they want to be paid.

Cass: I got you. I'll make it my top priority. I'll get right on it, and we'll see about issuing some checks.

John: Good, good.

Cass: I'll talk to you soon, then, ok?

John: Right, yeah. Right, I got to --

Cass: Ok.

John: Take care of some of these guys.

Cass: Ok.

John: Hey, Earl?

Cass: Yeah, get her on --

John: Earl?

Cass: Get her on line there. Jack Clark, please. Cass Winthrop. Hey, Jack, how's it going? Jack, we'll tell you about the plane crash later. I'm calling about the books, Jack. You handle all our accounts, so you know our financial situation right down to the last penny, right? Right. Jack, how bad is it?

Nicole: When did you start on these --

Donna: Oh, booties.

Nicole: Oh. I didn't know that you knew how to knit.

Donna: Well, I really don't know too much. I just kind of make it up as I go along.

Nicole: Oh, that's nice.

Donna: Why don't you -- ah, ah, ah. Why don't you just tell me what other words of wisdom Cass had on this island for you?

Nicole: Well, we talked about a lot of things.

Donna: Oh, I'm sure, all alone on a desert island.

Nicole: Oh, it was not a desert island. Come on!

Donna: Warm breezes, cool evenings under the stars.

Nicole: Well, yeah.

Donna: Yeah? And?

Nicole: Donna --

Donna: What?

Nicole: He told me he loves me.

[Donna and Nicole scream]

Donna: Oh, that's wonderful!

Nicole: You believe it?

Cass: Oh, look, it was a rough ordeal, but we survived, ok? Now, I really have -- no. No, I'm not going to give any exclusive interview on this. Now, look, I'm really very, very -- hey! Don't you understand English? The answer is no!

Felicia: Hi, honey.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: Boy, this place looks great.

Cass: Yeah.

Felicia: Hey, welcome home.

Cass: Thanks. Oh, man, that island is looking better and better to me all the time.

Felicia: What are you talking about, the Press?

Cass: Among other things.

Felicia: Yes, I heard about it on the radio on the way over here.

Cass: There's some news team parked across the street in a van. They're just hovering.

Felicia: You know what? Maybe we can use them for a little extra publicity for the opening.

Cass: What opening?

Felicia: The opening Friday -- oh.

Oh. Oh, don't you dare. That's a joke, isn't it?

Cass: Yeah, ha-ha-ha-ha.

Felicia: Cass, there is going to be an opening, isn't there?

Cass: It depends on Jack.

Felicia: Jack? Who's Jack?

Cass: Jack Clark. He's our accountant. He's on his way over here now to tell us if we have any money left in our little piggy bank.

Felicia: Is it that close?

Cass: Listen, I haven't said anything about this to Nicole, but we got big trouble.

Felicia: Gee, I'm sorry. I didn't know.

Cass: Yeah, I'd like to think that I can handle just about anything, but this is one of the toughest ones I've been up against.

Felicia: Well, at least you don't have to handle it alone. I mean, you have Nicole now.

Cass: Well, that's one of the nicest bits of sympathy I've received in a long time. What is the matter with you?

Felicia: Oh. Honey, you know I'm concerned about everything. You know that, don't you? I'm sorry.

Cass: Well, what's with the big smile? Is there something I should know about?

Felicia: I -- I've made a --

Cass: Come on.

Felicia: Big decision --

Cass: What?

Felicia: With Mitch.

Cass: You set a date, you little devil. Finally!

Felicia: Yes. What do you mean, "finally"?

Cass: You did.

Felicia: Yes.

Cass: Congratulations! That's great.

Felicia: I know it is. It is, isn't it?

Cass: It is.

Felicia: Well, we talked about a lot of things, and I decided I want to be a married lady again.

Cass: Well, what do you mean, you talked about a lot of things?

Felicia: Well, we talked about having a wedding and a family and where we should live together.

Cass: Whoa, whoa, wait, wait -- a family?

Felicia: Yeah. We talked about it.

Cass: A family like -- like kids?

Felicia: Yeah, you know, like small people.

Cass: Oh, honey, I didn't know you wanted that.

Felicia: Oh.

Cass: You little devil.

Felicia: Would you stop it. I'm just -- I don't know, we talked about --

Cass: Mommy.

Felicia: Oh, stop it. We talked about it, and I know how much Mitch cares about his son, Matthew, and -- oh, Cass, and I went over and I saw Donna and it --

Cass: And she just happens to be pregnant.

Felicia: Yeah, and I just sort of thought that -- well, unless --

Cass: Unless what?

Felicia: Nothing.

Cass: No, come on.

Felicia: It's nothing.

Cass: Tell me.

Felicia: No, no, it's -- Cass, it's just something I'm thinking about, that's all.

Cass: Ok.

Felicia: Ok?

Cass: Fine.

Felicia: Fine. I'll just go to the doctor, I'll get a checkup, and --

Cass: What?

Felicia: You know what? You haven't even congratulated me yet.

Cass: You didn't hear me. I did congratulate you.

Felicia: Oh. Oh, yeah, you did. Sorry. You did. Ok.

Cass: So, when's the happy day?

Felicia: Oh, about the middle of May. We just have to see what's available, that's all.

Cass: Honey, this is such great news.

Felicia: I know.

Cass: You deserve all the happiness you can get.

Felicia: Yeah, I sort of think that way, too. You know what, though?

Cass: What?

Felicia: I think so do you. How would you like to make it a double wedding?

[Dawn plays piano]

Dawn: I'm leaving you with this song I want to help you to be strong

Scott: That was terrific.

Dawn: It's not too sentimental?

Scott: No way.

Dawn: Good, because I definitely don't want it to be too sentimental.

Scott: It wasn't. Believe me, it was beautiful.

Dawn: I hope that's not a biased opinion.

Scott: Who, me, hmm? No way.

Dawn: You know, I'm very glad we're going away together.

Scott: Me, too.

Dawn: And I'm really glad that you took off work.

Scott: I wanted to. Are you kidding me?

Dawn: Did I ever tell you you're a very giving person?

Scott: Well, it's very easy to be giving when I'm in love with you.

Dawn: Yeah?

Scott: Mm-hmm.

Dawn: When I was a little girl --

Scott: Mm-hmm.

Dawn: I used to read stories about how the prince would come and take away the girl. And I used to think that they were fairy tales, but, you know, that was only until I met you.

Scott: Well, I got my white horse parked right out front.

Dawn: I don't mean it like "taking me away" taking me away.

Scott: I know. I know it.

Dawn: I mean it like that you saved me from something that I didn't think I could be saved from.

Scott: What was that?

Dawn: It was being afraid. You know, I wake up in the middle of the night and that's when it hits me, and I think I just wish that I could change things.

Scott: Dawn, why don't you wake me up when you're feeling like this and talk to me about it, huh?

Dawn: Because I don't need to. I just look at you, and then I realize that you love me regardless.

Scott: That's right.

Dawn: And that I love you and that I can still dream and I can still sing and play the piano and write music, and it's all because of you.

Scott: Well, I've gotten plenty in return, believe me.

Dawn: What, from me?

Scott: Who else, hmm?

Dawn: Like what?

Scott: Well, when I was growing up, I -- I guess it was because of my father mainly, but I -- I always kept my feelings inside. I never --

Dawn: Maybe you just needed his approval.

Scott: Yeah. It was a manly thing to do. And then when you came into my life, it's like I wasn't afraid to open up to you. I wasn't afraid to expose these feelings. I didn't care.

Dawn: It's just feelings.

Scott: Yeah. And the easiest part about everything has been loving you. Oh, I don't know, I -- I don't know how to --

Dawn: It's ok, it's ok. You don't have the words, I know that. I've always known that. Ever since we've been together, I've known that.

Scott: Oh, Dawn.

Liz: Take this down to graphics. I got two calls from Jim.

Jason: Hi, Liz.

Liz: Good morn-- Jason Frame?

Jason: Rachel here?

Liz: Why?

Jason: Probably because I would like to see her.

Liz: No.

Jason: No, she's not here or no, I can't see her?

Liz: Not here. Sorry.

Jason: Do you mind if I leave her a message, then? Just a little note?

Liz: Fine.

Jason: Oh, well, thank you. That's very efficient. Thank you very much. I don't know what your problem is. I hardly know you.

Liz: I've known most of your family, Jason Frame. They've caused a great deal of heartbreak for everyone I know and the people I love, including Mac and Rachel. Now, please, do us all a favor and just stay out of our lives.

Jason: That's a very good idea. In fact, I like that idea, with one small problem to it. Cory's got something of mine, I want it back. There.

Rachel: Jason. What is it that you want back?

Jason: My name, my family name.

Rachel: I don't understand, Jason.

Jason: It's really very simple. When my brother Steven died, you inherited Frame Construction Company.

Rachel: Half of it. Quinn had the other half.

Jason: Well, Quinn's dead now, too, which means you inherited the name "Frame Construction Company."

Rachel: The company is dormant, Jason.

Jason: You have the legal right to the title.

Liz: Why are you harassing Rachel about something like this?

Jason: I'm not harassing her, I'm just talking to her. I'd like it back.

Rachel: You want the name?

Liz: Be careful.

Jason: John Hudson and I are forming a construction company. I'd like to take the family name and put it with the construction company.

Rachel: Frame Construction.

Jason: Right.

Rachel: Frame Construction has a very good reputation in this area, Jason. You would be getting that, too.

Jason: I'm sure my brother Steven did a great deal to make it a good reputation, didn't he?

Rachel: So did Quinn. So did I, for that matter.

Jason: Look, I would like to continue to give the same kind of service that people are accustomed to getting from Frame Construction.

Rachel: Well, it would be a big responsibility, Jason.

Jason: All I want is what is mine. I'm not asking for anything else, just the name. What's fair is fair.

Rachel: I'll have to think about it. I'll get back to you.

Jason: All right. I'll call you.

Rachel: Fine.

Jason: Bye.

Rachel: Bye.

Jason: Liz.

Liz: Rachel, don't trust Jason Frame.

Rachel: Well, he has a point, Liz. I mean, I'm not planning to do anything with the company.

Liz: He's an opportunist, like all the Frames.

Rachel: That was in the past, Liz.

Liz: Nothing's ever completely in the past. Please, don't give him that name back, Rachel.

Donna: So it really was a romantic island for two, hmm?

Nicole: Well, give or take a plane crash, right?

Donna: Mm-hmm. Oh, Nicole, he really did tell you he loved you?

Nicole: Yes.

Donna: And?

Nicole: And I told him I loved him, too.

Donna: Yes? Oh! Oh, thank goodness! Finally, finally. Oh, I am so glad. Ok, so now I want to hear all the details.

Nicole: No, Donna!

Donna: Oh, come on, I want to hear everything.

Nicole: Well, actually, it all happened, you know, because we were alone. We were so isolated there.

Donna: Right, right, right, in your own private world.

Nicole: Yeah. It seemed so safe. Just the two of us. It was easier to show I cared and to have Cass open up about his feelings, too.

Donna: Oh, yes. Well, those feelings will go on, I mean, long after you leave the island.

Nicole: Oh, yeah, I know that.

Donna: Yes, well, love doesn't just disappear because you go from one country to another.

Nicole: Of course not.

Donna: Right. And now you're home.

Nicole: Yeah, not on the island anymore.

Donna: No, no, here you are in love. The salon opens on Friday. You've got to be so excited.

Nicole: Oh, you bet.

Donna: So how's it going?

Nicole: What?

Donna: The opening.

Nicole: Oh, well, we're -- we're just still in a state of flux right now.

Donna: I know. I know that. But you know what? You're really successful on two counts right now.

Nicole: What?

Donna: Oh, come on. Your salon is going to be a smash. And you and Cass are finally together. And you are going to live happily ever after, hmm?

Nicole: Right, right.

Cass: I -- I can't believe that you were talking about --

Felicia: A double wedding, honey.

Cass: Yeah.

Felicia: Yeah, double wedding. You can calm down, Cass. It was just a hint.

Cass: Oh, yeah, just another one of your famous subtle broadsides.

Felicia: Honey, it took you several months to admit that you even loved Nicole. I really didn't think you'd jump into a May wedding.

Cass: Now, listen --

Felicia: What?

Cass: Nicole and I are very committed to each other.

Felicia: Good.

Cass: To the business, to making it work.

Felicia: Great.

Cass: But that's all we can deal with right now.

Felicia: Honey, this doesn't have anything to do with Kathleen, does it?

Cass: No.

Felicia: Or the McKinnons? You're not worried about what they would think or anything like that?

Cass: No, no, it's more than that. I can't just rush into something this big. And besides, you should talk.

Felicia: I know. It's just that I really feel so sure about it now.

Cass: Well, I'm sure, too -- of right now.

Felicia: It's just that, you know, sometimes people let things drift. And then before you know it, the two people involved actually do drift apart.

Cass: That won't happen.

Felicia: Well, you know, you and Nicole are going to have to face a lot of things together in the next few months.

Cass: You're telling me.

Felicia: And I'm just happy that you had some time together alone and that you were able to finally admit that you were in love with each other.

Cass: I might have managed that time a little differently.

Felicia: I'm sure. It's just that -- I just don't want you to lose the chance, you understand?

Cass: We won't.

Felicia: Good. Ok. I got to go. I'll talk to you later about the opening Friday?

Cass: Oh, the opening. Right.

Felicia: All right? And don't worry about the money, you know.

Cass: Yeah.

Felicia: Accountants always find extra money somehow.

Cass: I'll call you.

Felicia: Ok. And remember -- don't lose the chance.

Cass: Ok.

Felicia: Ok.

Cass: You know, if we have to cancel --

John: Cass?

Cass: Oh, well.

John: I had this great idea. I saved all the marble from the fireplace when we tore it out, and I was thinking about using it upstairs. What do you think? Cass, what do you think? Cass?

Cass: Oh, hi.

John: Is something wrong?

Cass: Wrong?

John: You look like you lost something.

Cass: Lost something? No, not me. I'm never, ever going to lose anything ever again.

Jason: She wouldn't give me an answer. She wouldn't. Of course, with Liz Matthews sitting on her lap carping.

John: So she might not give up the name at all?

Jason: Well, she holds onto it too long, and I'll take her to court. I talked to an attorney today.

John: Oh, wait a minute. Wait -- I don't know.

Jason: Hey, I'm not afraid of taking the Corys to court.

John: Well, I don't know if that's such a good idea.

Jason: Why?

John: Well, my name is attached to this project, too, you know.

Jason: Hey, it's my family name I'm trying to get.

John: There's something else that we need to talk about. Since I'm providing the manpower for this deal, I think that makes me a 50% owner.

Jason: Whoa, wait a minute. Whoa. We never talked about that.

John: Well, we're talking about it now.

Jason: 50%?

John: 50%. It's fair, and you know it. Now, come on. Don't give me that look.

Jason: What look, John?

John: That look like you just got dealt a bad hand and you want me to fold.

Jason: Hey, I don't do that anymore.

John: No?

Jason: No.

John: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: Oh, hi, John.

John: Hi, Nic.

Jason: Hi.

Nicole: Hi.

Jason: Lady with the big, full-page ad today, huh?

Nicole: Cass upstairs?

John: Yeah. Yeah, I think so.

Jason: It's going to be a big shindig, right?

Nicole: We'll see.

Jason: I think I'll chip my way out of here. Good luck.

John: Take care.

Jason: Yeah, you, too.

John: Nic?

Nicole: Huh?

John: Is something wrong? Well, I mean, you just treated Jason like he was a bug. And I -- I'm wondering if --

Nicole: No, I just have things on my mind.

John: Ok. I'm going to go and check on Earl. Earl? Earl?

Nicole: How could anybody even think Mama would have an affair with a man like that?

Mary: Did they leave yet?

Vince: No. They can't close the suitcase last I heard.

Mary: Oh. I thought I was going to be late.

Cheryl: So, how did your interviews go?

Mary: Oh, they were ok. Well, some went better than others. One went really well.

Vince: Which one was it?

Chad: Now, look, if anybody pinches you, don't make a big deal out of it.

Dawn: Oh, I know, I know. You told me.

Scott: How about if they pinch me, though, huh?

Chad: Well, if they pinch you, then make a big deal out of it.

Mary: Hi.

Dawn: Hi.

Mary: Hi.

Scott: Hey, Mom.

Mary: You're all set to go, huh?

Scott: You bet.

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

Cheryl: Last American snack before departure, guys.

Mary: Come and get it.

Chad: Mangia, mangia!

Mary: Never get on a plane hungry.

Vince: This will stick to your ribs.

Dawn: Cheryl.

Cheryl: Yeah?

Dawn: Come here.

Mary: I don't need a fork. It's fine. I'll be fine.

Vince: Yeah, we don't have any.

Dawn: You know, I am really going to miss you.

Cheryl: Oh, come on. You're going to be back in no time.

Dawn: No, you have been the best friend that anyone could ever ask for.

Cheryl: Well, you, too. I mean, you're great.

Dawn: You've been through so much. I mean, more than anyone could possibly be asked to go through.

Cheryl: What are you talking about?

Dawn: When I found out I had AIDS, you stuck right there with me.

Cheryl: Of course I did.

Dawn: And when you found out about Scott and I, you didn't hold that against me, either.

Cheryl: I -- I was happy for you guys. Scott and I -- we just -- we weren't right for each other.

Dawn: I guess I'm just trying to ask you to do one more thing for me, ok?

Cheryl: Ok.

Dawn: I want you to be there for Scott. He's going to need somebody when he comes home.

Cheryl: But you're --

Dawn: Just take care of him, ok? He's going to need you. Ok?

Cheryl: Yeah. Anything you want. Come here.

Dawn: Thanks.

Vince: Hey, hey, no gabfest, you two. The pies are getting cold.

Dawn: Coming.

Scott: You guys got to go on a gondola.

Chad: You bet, right down the Grand Canal --

Vince: Oh, hey, I saw a movie about Venice one time. They had these people pushing each other into the water.

Chad: For what?

Vince: Hey, I could never figure it out.

Mary: What is it, kiddo?

Dawn: I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Mary: I didn't do anything. Chad did it all.

Dawn: No, I mean for a long time.

Mary: What?

Dawn: It's just that when I found out that I had AIDS, any mother would have done their best to keep me away from their son.

Mary: Well, but I knew the facts. And I also knew how very much Scott loves you and how much you love him.

Dawn: Yeah.

Mary: So, you see, anything I did was like that much.

Dawn: You are terrific. You know, I always thought that I had the perfect mother. And when I found out the truth about it, it was horrible.

Mary: I know.

Dawn: But you -- you're so wonderful that -- well, it's almost like -- like now I have the mother that I thought I always had.

Mary: Oh, gosh, honey. Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Dawn: Just wanted you to know that.

Bianca: Well, that's --(tearing noise...Ding, ding)

Donna: Oh! Oh, Bridget, look. I finished it. What do you think? Be honest with me, now.

Bridget: What is it, dear?

Donna: It's a bootie.

Bridget: Oh, aye. Oh, it's a bootie for the baby. Yes.

Donna: Oh, all right. I know it's not very good. I probably dropped a few stitches here and there. Oh, well. Wait a minute. What have you got there?

Bridget: Oh, it's a package that was just delivered for you.

Donna: Really?

Bridget: Yes.

Donna: Well, let's see what it is. Maybe Michael sent me something.

Bridget: What is it, dear?

Donna: Well, it's -- oh. Oh!

Bridget: What is it, dear?

Donna: Oh, Bridget, do you know what this is? Oh, this was the dress that I was christened in.

Bridget: Oh, my.

Donna: Oh, I remember it because Mama showed it to me one time. You know, Nicole must have gotten it out of the attic for me.

Bridget: The attic?

Donna: Yes. Oh, isn't it gorgeous?

Bridget: But what about the fire, dear?

Donna: Oh, right. Well, maybe she got it when she was over there before. You know, before the fire.

Bridget: Oh, yes. Yes, of course.

Donna: Or maybe -- maybe Michael got it for me. Well, whatever. I just can't believe I was ever this small. Would you look at this? Isn't it beautiful?

Bridget: It certainly is. Come on, now, let me have a closer look at it.

Donna: All right, all right.

Bridget: Oh, my.

Donna: You know, I really think Nicole probably got it for me.

Bridget: Well, whoever did certainly loves you very much.

[Music plays]

Vince: You've been pretty quiet.

Cheryl: Yeah, I guess.

Vince: You were never very good at saying goodbye.

Cheryl: Nope.

Mary: Ok, now, you listen to me.

Scott: Ok, Mom.

Mary: You take good care of yourself.

Scott: I will.

Mary: And of Dawn.

Scott: I will.

Mary: And you remember something.

Scott: Ok.

Mary: She's not as strong sometimes as she says she is.

Scott: I know that.

Mary: And you remember something else.

Scott: What?

Mary: You are loved a lot.

Scott: Thanks.

Mary: Both of you are.

Scott: We won't forget. Bye, Mom.

Mary: Bye-bye, my sweetie. You have fun.

Scott: We will, ok? I'll be over here.

Dawn: Time to say goodbye.

Mary: Oh, you're going to have so much fun. You're going to be so busy, you're going to be seeing so much stuff that you'll be back here before you even know it.

Dawn: I'm just a little tired. But I want you to know two things always. I love Scott, and I love you. Ok? Goodbye.

Chad: All right, everybody, hey, the car is waiting. We got a plane to catch.

Vince: Hey, send a post card every day, ok?

Scott: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Vince: Let me get the door.

Dawn: Ok.

Vince: All right.

Scott: Come on, come on, come on, we're going to miss the plane.

Vince: Wait. Now, listen, don't throw him in the water, like in that movie. You know what I mean? Take care of yourselves.

Chad: Thank you all.

Vince: Right. Oh. I'm sorry. What's wrong?

Mary: We're not going to see her again.
