Sam: You know what?
Sam: When we get back to Bay City, I am going to miss this.
Amanda: Oh, I have an idea.
Amanda: Maybe we should move next to a train station.
Sam: Good idea!
Sam: Oh. Oh, man.
Amanda: I don't know why you ever got that stupid thing installed.
Sam: I don't either.
Sam: Ok, ok, ok. Yeah, hello. Oh, hi, Laverne. No, we weren't sleeping. As a matter of fact, we definitely weren't sleeping. Oh, yeah? No, it's no problem. No. Ok, we'll be right over. See you in a bit. Guess what.
Sam: Break's over.
Amanda: The diner's busy again?
Sam: Yep. She said -- what was it? "That bus from Knoxville came in and I'm just working my little tail off."
Amanda: I guess we should go help her.
Sam: Well, hey, I tell you what -- why don't you stay here? I can handle this one myself.
Amanda: No. You never get the orders right. Besides, I don't mind.
Sam: Doesn't the baby make you tired?
Amanda: No. Not so much anymore. Anyway, good, hard work never hurt anybody, even a Cory.
Sam: You know what, Mrs. F?
Sam: I'm really nuts about you.
Cass: Thanks a lot.
Nicole: Thank you.
Felicia: Thank you.
Nicole: Do you think I looked happy and tranquil?
Felicia: Of course. Why wouldn't you?
Nicole: Just because we're mortgaged up to our eyeballs and I have, like, three designs to show for my whole collection - no reason.
Cass: Hey - the bigger the debt, the bigger the smile.
Felicia: That's right, that's right.
Nicole: Well, I better announce Cheryl.
Felicia: Listen, did Sophie get the dress altered?
Nicole: Just barely. There she is.
Felicia: She looks great.
Cass: So will the dress.
Nicole: Ok. Keep your fingers crossed.
Felicia: All right.
Nicole: Excuse me, ladies and gentlemen. Can I have your attention here? I'd like to show you a few more things from my collection. A few more highlights that will be coming up soon.
Cass: More like remains.
Nicole: This cocktail dress, modeled by the lovely Cheryl McKinnon, is titled "Spring bouquet."
Rachel: Cheryl, you look so lovely in that dress.
Cheryl: Really? Thanks. My knees were shaking.
Mitch: Don't worry -- no one will ever know.
Mitch: You know, I went by to see Matthew at school.
Felicia: Oh. He asked us not to go up. I'm glad you ignored him.
Mitch: Do you remember when he called and said that he had broken his leg and would be unable to attend the wedding?
Rachel: I thought he was lying.
Mitch: Well, he said at first that it was a broken leg, but then they had decided that it was just a bad sprain.
Rachel: He was fine. Why? Why is he lying?
Mitch: Have there been other times?
Rachel: Yes. Just yesterday when Mac and I were trying to reach him at school, his roommate kept telling us he was at the library.
Mitch: A scholar he's not.
Rachel: I think it's this school. I shouldn't have sent him, but Amanda liked it so much and he was so insistent.
Mitch: Does this worry you?
Rachel: Doesn't it you?
Mitch: It certainly appears as though he's keeping a secret, that's for sure.
Rachel: I keep thinking that maybe he's just becoming more and more like you.
Mitch: Well, maybe I should've been more understanding and thought about others.
Rachel: Mac isn't saying, but he's worried, too.
Mitch: Where is he?
Rachel: He's -- he's on the phone. I hope it's not about Matthew.
John: Does your -- does your father know you're wearing that?
Cheryl: My father doesn't have to tell me everything.
John: Well, if you were mine, I wouldn't let you out of the house.
Cheryl: Well, I'm not, am I? So, how am I doing?
Cass: Oh, honey, you're doing great.
Felicia: Great, great.
Cass: You look gorgeous.
Cheryl: Thank you.
Felicia: Go on, knock 'em dead.
Felicia: You see? Things are going wonderfully.
Nicole: Yeah, as long as no one finds out the dress I did for Donna is the only new design I have.
Cass: That's just for now.
Felicia: Where is Donna, anyway?
Nicole: She'll be ready soon.
Nicole: We're not in any hurry. There's plenty of time.
Donna: No. This is not happening.
Reginald: You look radiant, darling. Must be the burgeoning motherhood.
Donna: You were in prison.
Reginald: Yes, I was -- past tense.
Donna: But -- but I thought --
Reginald: I wanted to deliver my little gift in person.
Donna: My christening dress? You sent it?
Reginald: It stayed so lovely through the years, didn't it? Oh, I can't wait to see it on your child at the christening.
Donna: No! No, you will not be there.
Reginald: Oh, I think I will. In fact, it will be just the two of us -- or should I say three?
Reginald: I think I'm really going to like raising another child. I have some wonderful theories of my own on the subject.
Donna: You will not raise this child. You will not even get anywhere near him.
Reginald: Get your coat, Donna.
Reginald: I'll explain it all to you on the way.
Donna: No, I am not going anywhere with you!
Reginald: Why don't we just save the false show of bravado, darling? We both know you're going to do exactly as I say.
Reginald: You might want to change your clothes. That dress might be a bit chilly in a helicopter.
Reginald: Yes, the one I have waiting. I think it's really the wisest thing for you to go willingly, dear, considering the fragile state of your pregnancy.
Donna: Well, it's all because of you. No! Stop it! Michael is right downstairs!
Reginald: All the more ironic when he finds you gone.
Donna: You are. You're still after him, aren't you?
Reginald: Actually, that's not it at all. I had a lot of time to think while I was recuperating, and I decided that Michael Hudson is too insignificant to be the focus of my life. What I need is a new start.
Donna: What kind of a new start?
Reginald: Another chance, an opportunity to correct some old mistakes.
Donna: Look, you've bought your way out of prison. Why don't you go make your new start and then just leave us alone? No!
Reginald: What kind of a life would that be, all alone?
Donna: Well, you could use your money to buy friends or buy yourself a woman. That's right. Yeah, and you could just keep her until you got tired of her, until you wanted to get rid of her, to kill her. I mean, that's what you would do, isn't it? That's how you handle things.
Reginald: I don't want another woman. I don't want anything that would distract me from the pleasure of rearing my grandson. I know it's a boy.
Donna: God, you are crazy.
Reginald: I am thinking more clearly than I've thought in years. I am relatively young for a grandfather, and this time -- this time I know where my focus should be. Think of all the years I will have to nurture the boy, to guide him.
Donna: No! No, no! Stop! Please!
Reginald: Your son -- he's my chance. Don't you see? It came to me in a blinding flash, and I was rejuvenated. I can do for your son what I couldn't do for you.
Donna: What are you going to do to me?
Reginald: I'm going to save you the way I should've saved you years ago, the way I'm going to save your son.
Donna: No. No, you're sick. You are, you're sick!
Reginald: Donna! Get your coat, please.
Donna: No --
Reginald: Now, I want to be out of here before the police realize I've sent them on a wild-goose chase.
Donna: No. No, you won't get away with this!
Reginald: You even talk like Michael Hudson. Oh, I'll be so glad when his influence is out of your life.
Donna: You are not ever going to take Michael away from me.
Reginald: We are going to start over -- you and I and your son.
Donna: No. No, I won't let you!
Reginald: Look, I know -- I know it's hard for you now, but you'll understand soon. Now, please, darling, please get moving.
Cass: Very beautiful.
Nicole: We didn't have time to fit the dress to you properly. I hope they don't see the pins.
Julie Ann: I'll work the sleeves.
Lisa: Julie Ann, you look beautiful.
Julie Ann: Thank you.
Lisa: Love those sleeves.
Jamie: Not into the fashion scene?
Lisa: I love it. Why?
Jamie: Well, you just -- you seem a little upset, I guess.
Lisa: Those sleeves -- I couldn't afford those sleeves, much less the dress.
Jamie: It's Vicky, isn't it?
Lisa: If I was upset every time I saw Vicky, I'd be upset an awful lot.
Jamie: Listen, I know she follows me around a lot.
Lisa: Yeah, I'm expecting her to show up in O.R., scrubbed and ready.
Jamie: She's just a little at loose ends, ok?
Jamie: I'll get us some champagne.
Adam: Is that one of Nicole's dresses?
Lisa: This? Half-price at Field's.
Adam: Ah. I guess it's just you that makes it look like a million bucks.
Lisa: Are you trying to make me feel good?
Adam: Who, me? No.
Lisa: Well, you did anyway.
Mac: How soon can you go to South America?
Mitch: Are you kidding?
Mac: No. I'm having a profile done on that new man in the Sandinista regime, and we need pictures.
Mitch: What, you want me to go to Nicaragua?
Mac: Well, not if you don't want to.
Mitch: Well, I need to talk to Felicia. We're getting married. She's planning a wedding.
Rachel and Mac: Congratulations.
Mac: That's wonderful. When's it going to be?
Mitch: The middle of May.
Mac: Well, maybe you don't want to take this assignment, but you would be back long before that.
Mitch: When would I -- when do I leave?
Mac: Well, the reporter is leaving from O'Hare on the 11:00 flight. You'd have to be with her.
Mac: Now, if you don't want to go, I'll get someone else, but I know you're the best, Mitch.
Mitch: Give me a minute.
Rachel: Well, that came together.
Mac: Clearances just came through. Oh, I'm sorry I was gone so long. Having a good time?
Rachel: Yeah, it's all right. What do you think about that dress? Is that too young for me?
Mac: Wow. Absolutely not!
Rachel: Oh, you'd probably say that even if you thought so.
Rachel: After all, I am going to be a --
Mac: Oh -- a grandmother. And you're going to be the jazziest one I know and the most beautiful. Would you excuse me? I haven't congratulated Nicole yet.
Rachel: All right.
Mac: Be right back.
Michael: Your mom -- I was just wondering if you had any idea what might be keeping her.
Vicky: Oh, well, dad, I'm sure she's just trying to make herself look beautiful. She hasn't been out of bed in a long time.
Michael: Yeah, I guess that's it.
Nicole: Don't you worry about a thing. Your secret's safe with me.
Mac: I knew I could count on you.
Nicole: Excuse me. By the way, I missed the wedding. How was it?
Mac: Her dress was magnificent.
Nicole: Oh, good.
Mac: The wedding was terrific but a little unorthodox.
Nicole: I see.
Mac: But that's all behind them now. They're having the honeymoon of their dreams.
Nicole: Oh, good.
Amanda: Adam and Eve unwrapped!
Laverne: Let me see -- yours is the patty melt, right?
Man: Laverne, I got me a problem.
Laverne: Bob Jenkins, you've had a problem since the day you was born. Now, there are those cheese grits the way you like them, honey.
Bob: No, this is serious!
Laverne: Well, what is it, honey?
Bob: There's a woman on the bus, and she's pregnant.
Laverne: Now, honey, that's her problem, not yours. Isn't it?
Bob: I mean she's -- she's having labor pains, Laverne, bad ones.
Laverne: Well, on the bus?
Bob: I got to find her a doctor soon or I'm going to have me one more passenger.
Laverne: Well, honey, you'd have to go all the way to Johnson City for that.
Bob: I ain't no midwife. I never even saw a cat have kittens.
Laverne: Well, see if she can walk, and then you bring her in here. That bus of yours is no place to go into labor.
Laverne: Now -- no, go ahead.
Laverne: And get somebody to help you with her!
Bob: No --
Laverne: Look, go ahead! Go ahead now! And -- and, oh, and don't walk if she has a pain!
Amanda: What's the matter?
Laverne: Oh, well, Bob's got a woman on the bus that's going into labor.
Amanda: What are you going to do?
Laverne: I don't know yet. Now, come on, honey. Here you go. There you go. Come on, now. Ooh -- wait a minute.
Laverne: No, no, no, no, no. Now, don't screw up your face like that, honey. It'll just make it worse. Now take real deep breaths. There -- now breathe through your mouth. Now, pant, pant. Pant like a dog.
Laverne: That's good, that's good. Now, don't you worry.
Laverne: That'll be gone in about 30 seconds.
Laverne: There. All right. Now, how long you been like this?
Woman: Since before I got on the bus.
Laverne: You feel like you want to bear down? Uh -- has that newspaper truck gone by yet?
Amanda: It just got here.
Laverne: All right. You get me a whole stack of newspapers.
Laverne: Oh -- and start boiling some water because we got to sterilize some string and a pair of scissors.
Laverne: Oh, oh -- here. These are my car keys.
Laverne: Now, you go and get a blanket in the trunk.
Sam: Why are we doing this?
Laverne: Honey, we are in a race with a stork.
Amanda: I'm sorry. I'm going to have to ask you to take your dinners out on the bus and finish them.
Man: Looks like she's about ready to drop.
Amanda: We didn't have time to get her to a hospital.
Man: Hmm. Spare me the miracle of birth. Let's go.
Amanda: Everybody, Laverne says it's on the house.
Laverne: Don't you worry about a thing, honey. I've had six kids. I know everything there is to know.
Sam: Is this the right blanket?
Laverne: Yeah. I just washed it in the washing machine at the Laundromat. It's real nice and clean.
Laverne: Here, now, help me move this table.
Sam: All right.
Sam: Ok, I'll get that.
Amanda: Ok, Laverne, the water's boiling and I have the string and the scissors.
Laverne: All right.
Woman: Oh! There's another one.
Laverne: Here. Pant like a dog.
Laverne: Pant like a dog. Ok, now -- now take shallow breaths.
Laverne: Now, try not to push. Try not to push. Try not to push.
Laverne: There. That was a good one.
Woman: Oh, I thought I could make it to Johnson City.
Laverne: Now, what's in Johnson City?
Woman: My husband, Kenny.
Laverne: Working in the mines?
Woman: This is our first baby.
Bob: How is she doing?
Sam: She's doing just fine. Tell me something -- do you know her name?
Bob: Robertson, she said it was. Jill Robertson. Why?
Sam: I got an idea, ok?
Laverne: Ok. Get your legs up. All right. Oh, I got some -- some pillows in the back. Now, you -- you stay with her here.
Amanda: All right.
Laverne: Make sure she does her breathing.
Amanda: Ok. Are you scared?
Jill: Really scared.
Amanda: Well, I can understand how you feel -- sort of. I'm pregnant myself.
Laverne: You are?
Amanda: Yeah, about four months.
Laverne: Why, you hardly show at all. Here. Come on, honey. Just raise up your head a little. Wait a minute -- ok.
Amanda: Ok. I was real scared about the delivery, but I guess I'm going to learn about it now, huh?
Laverne: Well, you should've told me. You shouldn't be running around this diner in your condition.
Amanda: Oh, no, no, that -- it didn't matter. It was fine.
Jill: Ah. Here's another one.
Laverne: All right.
Jill: I have to push.
Laverne: That's right. Now, take it -- now -- now -- now -- now just try to breathe and push.
Nicole: Here you go, Mac. I wrapped it myself.
Mac: Thank you, and thank you for doing it so quickly.
Nicole: You're welcome.
Mac: I hope you've just made somebody's day.
Nicole: Yeah, me, too.
Mac: Do you think it'd be all right if I left this in the foyer until I go?
Nicole: Oh, of course.
Mac: Great. Oh, Nicole?
Nicole: Oh! Thank you.
Mac: Thank you.
Nicole: Thank you, Mac.
Felicia: South America?
Mitch: Yes. Look, it's a really good assignment.
Felicia: Honey, I just got back myself. Need I remind you we are trying to plan our wedding?
Mitch: Look, I know that, but I'm not going to be gone that long. Mac said it's going to be just a matter of days.
Felicia: Where is he, anyway? Why doesn't he send someone who's already married?
Mitch: Because he says I'm the best that he's got.
Felicia: Well, of course you're the best. I know that.
Mitch: In spite of what he feels about me personally, he trusts me with the assignment.
Felicia: You have to do this, don't you?
Mitch: I knew you'd see it my way.
Felicia: I'll go with you! I love South America.
Mitch: We're not talking about a weekend in Rio at carnival time. It's Nicaragua.
Felicia: Nicaragua? It's dangerous there.
Mitch: I'll be all right.
Mitch: I've heard journalists -- it's ok. Look, I'm going to be ok. I'm not going to be gone long, and when I get back, who knows? I might even have some prize-winning photos.
Felicia: You're going to do this, aren't you, no matter what I say?
Mitch: When I come back, I'll bring you something real nice, like a really tacky souvenir.
Felicia: Oh. Just make sure you bring yourself back safe and sound. All right. When are you leaving?
Mitch: I'm going to be ok. I'm going to go home and I'm going to pack, and I'll see you before I leave. I love you.
Vicky: Thank you so much for letting my mom come tonight.
Jamie: Where is she, anyway?
Vicky: Oh, she's upstairs getting on Nicole's evening gown that she designed for her. Getting out of bed for a while did wonders for her morale.
Jamie: Well, I hope she realizes she's going right back to that bed as soon as this party's over.
Vicky: Oh, I'm sure she does. Oh, shoot.
Jamie: What's wrong?
Lisa: My earring. I guess the back came off or something --
Lisa: And I have no purse or no pockets or --
Jamie: Well, what do you think men have pockets in their coats for?
Lisa: Oh, well, James, how gallant. Thank you.
Jamie: I'm just curious, you know, why Donna isn't around. What's going on?
Vicky: Well -- heel, heel. No need to worry. She's in great hands.
Donna: Stop it. Take your hands off me.
Reginald: This isn't wise, Donna.
Donna: This is not going to work. Don't you see that?
Reginald: You're going to love Paraguay. The vegetation there is beautiful.
Donna: I am not going to let you take Michael's son away from him.
Reginald: I've already spoken to an excellent local obstetrician --
Donna: No --
Reginald: And he says it's no problem to deliver the baby at home.
Donna: No, this is -- it's just like with the twins.
Reginald: It's a much more natural setting, don't you think, dear?
Donna: You're going to do it again, aren't you? You're going to take my baby away from me!
Reginald: You will never be separated from him as long as you support my plans for him.
Donna: No. No, I won't let you do this! Michael won't let you do it!
Reginald: He is right downstairs, and he hasn't even checked up on you. I've told you, he's not as devoted as he seems.
Donna: No. No, he'll stop you. He will. He'll see to it that you're in prison or that you're in jail --
Reginald: I'm sorry to have to do this, darling --
Reginald: But it's for your own good. Shh. I'm going to start being the kind of father I should've been all along. It's just the three of us now. Just the three of us.
Amanda: So exciting.
Laverne: Well --
Laverne: All right. It's a boy.
Jill: A boy. Is it all right?
Amanda: You have a son.
Jill: It's a miracle.
Amanda: It's a miracle.
Nicole: I just hope Mac doesn't find out he just bought about 1/5 of my entire collection.
Cass: Speaking of that, where's the piece de resistance?
Felicia: Hey, where is Donna?
Nicole: I know. I'll tell you what -- why don't I make the thank-you speech and then I'll go up and check on her?
Nicole: This is taking way too long.
Cass: No, wait a second. Why don't I make the speech, and you and Michael can go collect Donna and escort her downstairs?
Nicole: Oh, great. That's a good idea.
Nicole: Why don't you just give me five minutes, ok?
Cass: You got it.
John: Well, now, that's more like it.
Cheryl: You know, I heard some people talking about you.
John: Oh, yeah?
Cheryl: Yes. They were saying --
Cheryl: That you did all the construction on this place. It looks beautiful.
John: Well, the building was in pretty good shape to begin with. All I had to do was scrape off a few extra layers of crud.
Cheryl: I think it was more than that. I saw this place before you started.
John: Well, let's hope word of mouth works because I plan to go into the construction business full-time.
Cheryl: Really? All on your own or --
John: No, no. I'm going to be in a partnership with Jason Frame. We hope to resurrect the Frame Construction Company.
Cheryl: Well, good luck.
John: Thanks. I'll need it.
Rachel: Do you think we can go?
Mac: Of course. We've done our bit here.
Rachel: I was just hearing John Hudson say that he and Jason were going to be Frame Construction.
Mac: Darling, John doesn't know how you feel about it. He's a good man.
Rachel: Jason hasn't bothered to explain it to him, I'm sure. Jason just isn't like Steve.
Mac: I think you're a little blue.
Rachel: Yeah, I guess I am.
Mac: Let me buy you a cup of coffee. Maybe I can cheer you up.
Rachel: Anybody could cheer me up, you could.
Mac: You're on.
Rachel: What's that?
Mac: My laundry. Come on.
Nicole: So, how about if you take one side of her and I'll be on the other side, and then she can make her grand entrance?
Michael: That's great. I'll feel better if I support her a little bit.
Michael: Let's go.
Nicole: Oh, wait, wait. Let's wait for Cass to make his announcement.
Cass: Excuse me, everybody. If I could just have your attention one more time. I promise.
Cass: I guess -- I guess you all know that I'm the silent partner in the Nicole Love salon -- although I haven't been very silent tonight.
Cass: But we did want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and to remind you that this is just the beginning. Nicole is as creative and imaginative as she is charming and beautiful. Now, there's one more outfit to be modeled here, and when you see this, you are going to know for sure that when it comes to fashion, this woman really knows what she's doing.
Donna: [Muffled] no.
Reginald: We can head down the back stairway and out. I hope the stable boy took a good, long look at you tonight since he'll never see you again.
Donna: No! No!
Cass: The -- the model who will be modeling this outfit is going to have a special escort from the designer herself. We kind of like to keep it in the family, you know.
Reginald: Don't exert yourself, darling. We wouldn't want any harm to come to you or the baby. I have some plans for you both.
Cass: So, I hope that you will give a real nice round of applause to Donna Love Hudson, who is modeling the very newest design from the Nicole Love salon.
Reginald: I don't think so.
Donna: No, Michael! Michael! Michael! Oh! Oh!
Michael: Donna? Donna?
Jamie: Somebody call an ambulance and tell them it's an emergency!
Cass: I'm going to look around upstairs. Adam, come on.
Michael: Why was she running? Did anyone see why she was running?
Jamie: I don't know, I don't know.
Nicole: Donna? I shouldn't have left her alone.
Michael: Can you tell anything at all, Jamie?
Jamie: We have to get her to the hospital and fast. I think she's bleeding internally.
Vicky: Oh, Mom!
Felicia: All right, the ambulance is on its way.
Cass: How is she?
Nicole: Nobody knows. Oh, Donna!
Adam: There's nothing upstairs. I'm going to check outside.
Michael: Jamie, Jamie, Jamie -- can you tell anything about the baby?
Jamie: It's too early to tell! It's too soon! Come on, back up, back up. Give her some air.
Michael: Donna? Oh, please, God, let Donna -- let the baby be ok, please? Please?
Jill: You her baby's daddy?
Sam: Yeah. How'd you know?
Jill: Kind of sense it, I guess -- the way you look at each other. You make sure you're there when your baby's born.
Sam: Oh, I will, I will.
Jill: Kenny said that he could make good money in the mines. There wasn't any call for me to leave my mama's house. But a woman ought to be with a man when she's having his kid.
Laverne: Don't you fret now, honey. You'll see him.
Sam: Would you do me a big favor?
Jill: I guess so.
Sam: Could I hold him just for a second, please?
Jill: I'm going to let this man hold you.
Laverne: Support his little head, now.
Jill: That's right, that's right.
Jill: You see him?
Sam: Hey, little guy. I thought you were supposed to be ugly. You're cute. You even got hair. Shh.
Laverne: How you feeling, honey?
Jill: Tired and hungry.
Laverne: Well, we can take care of that. Ooh, he's a keeper, isn't he?
Sam: Yeah, he sure is. He sure is.
Jill: Is that an ambulance?
Amanda: I don't think it could be. Laverne just went to call them.
Jill: Yeah, that's right.
Kenny: Where's my wife?
Jill: Oh -- oh, honey, how'd you find us?
Kenny: A squad car showed up, told me to get in.
Jill: I'm so glad to see you.
Kenny: We're all together now.
Jill: Here you are. Yeah.
Sam: Quite a night, huh?
Amanda: How do you suppose that squad car just found him?
Sam: Oh, I don't know. Beats me.
Amanda: You did it, didn't you?
Sam: You know, she's right. A daddy should be with his woman when she's having his kid. That's the way it should be.
Mac: Now, are you going to tell me what's bothering you?
Rachel: Now are you going to tell me what's in that package?
Mac: You first.
Rachel: Well, I've just been thinking a lot about Frame Construction.
Mac: I know.
Rachel: It's not that I feel vindictive toward Jason.
Mac: I know that, too, Rachel.
Rachel: It's just that Steve built that company because he really cared about design and architecture. Jason's just in it to make a buck.
Mac: So, have you decided to fight him?
Rachel: No. I'm going to do just the opposite.
Mac: You're going to let Jason take over the company?
Rachel: I can't do that, either. It's not mine to give.
Mac: I'm afraid you've lost me.
Rachel: Frame Construction isn't mine anymore.
Amanda: It was the most natural, beautiful thing I've ever seen. Wasn't it beautiful?
Amanda: Something wrong?
Sam: Why do you say that?
Amanda: Well, I guess just with the birth of the baby and everything, it's kind of a heavy dose of reality. I wouldn't blame you if you were scared.
Sam: I'm not scared. Think about it. There's a whole person in there.
Amanda: I know.
Sam: He or she's going to have dimples or want to paint, but it's all been decided.
Amanda: Guess I'm just going to have to wait.
Sam: And you know what?
Sam: I'm real excited.
Amanda: Are you really?
Sam: Yeah. I mean, talk about creative -- I mean, we created a whole person.
Amanda: I know.
Sam: Before that, you know, it was just an abstraction, it was just "the baby."
Amanda: Not anymore.
Sam: But we're going to -- we're going to do things together, the three of us. We're going to find out about each other.
Amanda: I can't wait.
Sam: You know what?
Sam: I'm happy. I'm pretty happy.
Zack: Everything's going to be ok, honey.
Julie Ann: You saw her. Did you see the way Jamie looked?
Zack: Come on, let's go home, ok?
Delia: We can call the hospital from there.
Julie Ann: Let me talk to Cheryl and see if she needs a ride.
Julie Ann: Hi.
Julie Ann: Zack's taking me home. Do you want to come with us?
Cheryl: In a minute, ok?
Julie Ann: Ok.
Cheryl: Thanks. Is there anything I can do?
John: No, thanks.
Cheryl: I don't have to go with Julie Ann. I could stay. I could go to the hospital with you if --
John: No, I -- I think it'd be better if -- it'd be better for Mike if I stay away.
Cheryl: I'm praying for them.
John: I hope somebody up there hears you.
Cheryl: See you.
John: You kept me safe. Now do it for her.
Adam: The only person who could've scared Donna like that is Reginald.
Lisa: Did you find out anything from headquarters?
Adam: Just that they're still tailing that ambulance.
Lisa: To where?
Adam: That's just the thing. It's still headed downstate, but not toward any big city.
Lisa: Well, maybe Reginald has a country place.
Adam: No, no, no, no. I'd know about that.
Lisa: Do you think that this is a setup?
Adam: Listen, this whole thing has smelled ever since he first started -- since he first asked for bail.
Lisa: What are you going to do now?
Adam: I'm going to stop that ambulance. I'm going to stop that little parade, and I'm going to find out who's in it.
Lisa: Adam, you don't think Reginald was here tonight?
Adam: I'm going to find out. It's the least I can do for Mike.
Jamie: Possible section, now.
Nurse: Yes, doctor.
Michael: Jamie --
Jamie: I have to go now.
Michael: I know. Just -- just do the best you can, ok?
Jamie: Don't worry.
Nicole: Oh, Michael, how is she?
Michael: I -- I don't know. Jamie's checking right now to see if there's a fetal heartbeat.
Nicole: Did she regain consciousness in the ambulance?
Felicia: Then you don't know why this happened?
Michael: No, I have no idea. I guess we're just going to have to wait and find out.
Vicky: And hope.
Mac: I didn't know you'd made a new will.
Rachel: I did it six months ago.
Rachel: Well, the kids, you know, were older, and things had changed. I don't know. I just did it.
Mac: So, how does that affect Frame Construction?
Rachel: I've turned the title of the company over to Jamie.
Mac: That makes sense.
Rachel: Steve had always wanted Jamie to go into business with him.
Mac: I just can't imagine the Jamie I know being interested in construction.
Rachel: Well, maybe not, but it's his legacy. He should be the one to decide its future.
Mac: And to deal with his uncle Jason.
Rachel: He can do it. He's got a strength that Jason doesn't know anything about.
Mac: Have you told him what Jason wants?
Rachel: No. I will. But now I don't think Jamie should wait. I'm going to give him the title to the company now.
Rachel: Yes, I've already talked to Zack about it.
Mac: But Frame Construction is very important to you, Rachel.
Rachel: It was a dream of Steve's. And I guess I've always felt like I needed to help protect that dream. And it was all I had of Steve. Does that bother you?
Rachel: But, you know, lately I've been thinking, why do I need that company? I have Steve's son. Jamie's grown into the kind of man that would make Steve really proud, and Jamie can take care of Steve's dream without my help.
Mac: You know the Frames are important to Jamie. He may very well let Jason take over the company.
Rachel: He can do whatever he likes with it. I shouldn't be involved. But he might want it for his own son someday.
Mac: You know, you've decided to do the one thing that Jason doesn't expect.
Rachel: You really think so?
Mac: Well, he could get all steamed up about going into battle against the high and mighty Corys, but it's another thing to take on his brother's son.
Rachel: I just hope he doesn't underestimate Jamie. That would be a mistake.
Mac: That why you've been so blue?
Rachel: Because I'm proud of my son?
Mac: No -- because your son is his own man now and your daughter's away with her husband and your baby boy's in boarding school.
Rachel: I don't like this idea very much.
Mac: Because if you're feeling that you're not needed anymore --
Rachel: It's not that. It's that a whole era of my life is over with. Jamie doesn't need me to fight his battles anymore. He's fully capable of doing it himself. It's not that I'm not looking forward to the future. It's just I guess I'm missing the past.
Mac: Well, now I really feel stupid.
Mac: Well, I didn't know you'd been giving all this thought to this thing. I thought you were just --
Rachel: Empty nest syndrome?
Mac: Well, I thought you might be feeling --
Mac: So, I did this very crass thing, hoping to cheer you up.
Rachel: What's in the package, Mac?
Mac: You know what's in the package.
Rachel: The dress that Julie Ann was wearing.
Rachel: Do you really think I'm going to look nice in it?
Mac: I think you're the most youthful, the most exciting, the warmest, wisest woman in the whole world.
Rachel: Oh, Mac.
Mac: And I think that you're going to look great in or out of that dress. I'm looking forward to the future, too, because my future is you.
Amanda: It has been a long day.
Sam: Yeah, well, it's not too often you get to deliver a baby and serve hamburgers to 200 people in a day.
Amanda: You still want to start out in the morning?
Sam: Sure. Why not? I got a line on a car today.
Amanda: Yeah, you must be pretty tired, too. Spent your day looking for new cars, chasing expectant fathers.
[Knock on door]
Amanda: Now what?
Sam: I don't know, but nothing would surprise me right about now. Hey, Laverne.
Laverne: I know you all are as tired as I am, but I couldn't let you leave without giving you something to show my appreciation.
Sam: Come on in.
Amanda: Laverne, you didn't have to give us anything.
Laverne: Ever since I heard you was pregnant, I wanted to give you these.
Amanda: Oh, they're beautiful.
Laverne: Well, I got to get home to Ralph and the kids. You two, you take real good care of each other, and you send me a picture of the baby when it comes.
Amanda: Thank you.
Amanda: We'll never forget you. I think she liked us.
Sam: Well, I think it was you helping out at the diner and not letting on you were pregnant. I mean, if they knew who you really were, I don't know --
Amanda: Ah! Who I really am is your wife and the mother of this kid.
Sam: That's one lucky kid.
Amanda: About as lucky as I am now.
Cass: Honey. You want to call Mitch and tell him what happened?
Felicia: No, I probably couldn't reach him, anyway.
Cass: Why not?
Felicia: Why don't we just wait for word on Donna?
Cass: Ok, ok.
Michael: Now, I don't understand what's keeping them. I mean, we've been waiting out here all this time. It's been over an hour. I don't understand why Jamie's not here.
Cass: It's ok, Michael.
Michael: Jamie! Jamie, what happened? Tell me what's going on. What -- is the baby ok? How's Donna?
Jamie: Michael --
Michael: Tell me, Jamie. You tell me now.
