Mary: "Mr. Hudson said that Mr. Love came at him with a knife on top of the Love Tower and that when he instinctively stepped out of the way, Mr. Love plunged past him to his death."

Cheryl: Did you call Scott?

Mary: No. I'm going to wait until he comes home. There's absolutely nothing that he can do, and I will not spoil his time with Dawn. I can't believe this.

Vince: Reggie's really dead. I can't say I'm sorry.

Mary: He had such a desperate need to control everyone.

Vince: Well, he got his. Now maybe we can really put the past behind us and start working on our future.

Mary: Vince, I don't think this is the time to talk about this.

Cheryl: No, no. You guys go ahead, really. Go ahead. I have to talk to John about something anyway. Go ahead. Hi.

John: Hi, Cheryl.

Cheryl: Can I talk to you for a second?

John: Sure. What's up?

Cheryl: A lot, I hope. Actually, nothing. I wanted to let my parents talk by themselves for a little bit.

John: Why? What's going on?

Cheryl: A lot. A lot, I hope.

John: You really want them to get back together, don't you?

Cheryl: Yeah. I think about it all the time.

John: Yeah.

Cheryl: You think that's weird or something?

John: No, no, no. I don't think it's weird. I just wish that you would spend a little bit more time thinking about somebody for you, that's all.

Cheryl: Maybe I have found someone, someone who's just right for me.

Nicole: Oh. Some designer I am.

[Nicole sighs]

Nicole: Oh, mama. What do I do now?

Cass: A rose by any other name would still be outrageously expensive.

Nicole: Hi.

Cass: Hi. This is for you.

Nicole: Thanks.

Cass: I only got one --

Nicole: It's lovely, thanks.

Cass: Because we're broke, but I think that we can still afford the water.

Nicole: Well, I'll put in a vase and then -- I --

Cass: I know. I know.

Nicole: Oh, I feel like the world's oldest orphan.

Cass: You poor baby.

Nicole: Oh, I know he was awful. I know I shouldn't feel sad.

Cass: You're allowed.

Nicole: But he vanished, just like mama -- no warning. I'm all alone now. I'm all alone, Cass.

Rachel: Mom. What a pleasant surprise.

Ada: Well, I would have called, but I happened to be in the neighborhood.

Rachel: Since when do you need an excuse? Come on in.

Ada: Well, if you're busy, I'll go.

Rachel: I'm not busy. Come on in, come on in.

Ada: Is Mac home?

Rachel: No, he isn't. He's at the office. Why? Did you want to see him?

Ada: No.

Rachel: Oh.

Ada: I mean, it's not that I don't want to see him. I love Mac. You know that.

Rachel: What is it?

Ada: Nothing! I thought if you weren't busy --

Rachel: I'm not busy.

Ada: Well, I don't have to be back at Mary's Place, see, until later this afternoon, and I thought if we could have some lunch, maybe, and we could go to Sam and Amanda's and fix it up before they get home.

Rachel: Oh, that would be lots of fun. I'd love to do that, but --

[doorbell rings]

Rachel: I've got to answer the door -- Hilda's day off.

Jason: Hi, Rachel.

Rachel: Hello, Jason.

Jason: I don't mean to seem pushy.

Rachel: Oh, yeah? Since when?

Jason: I need an answer on Frame Construction. I need it now.

Jason: I didn't know you were here, Ada.

Ada: Well, here I am.

Rachel: I've got plans, Jason.

Jason: Are you and Ada going out?

Rachel: No. Actually, I'm going out to lunch with Loretta Fowler, if it's any of your business.

Jason: Oh, well, then, you can give me five minutes, right?

Rachel: No, I really can't.

Ada: I was just leaving.

Rachel: Wait a minute. You haven't --

Ada: I'll call you later, ok?

Rachel: Mom, wait!

Ada: Jason is waiting.

Rachel: So, who cares? Let him wait.

Ada: Say hello to Loretta for me. Bye.

Jason: Very sorry if I chased your mother out.

Rachel: Oh, don't flatter yourself. She comes and goes as she chooses.

Jason: I just meant that if I irritated her in any way, I --

Rachel: I'm busy, Jason.

Jason: I'm trying to get right straight to the point -- the title for Frame Construction.

Rachel: I'm not prepared to make my decision on that yet.

Jason: Well, you've had a little time to think about it. I want to get moving.

Rachel: Yeah, well, there are some things I have to do first.

Jason: Like what?

Rachel: You're not even talking to the right person.

Jason: Well, are you saying I should be talking to an attorney?

Rachel: I'm saying I'm not prepared to give you an answer yet.

Jason: All right. But I'm not going to wait much longer.

Rachel: I don't see that you have any chance.

Jason: Oh, you have so much spirit, Rachel. No wonder my brother was nuts about you. See you around.

John: Oh, come on. Somebody as pretty as you are -- you've probably get them lined up outside the door.

Cheryl: You have any problem getting into that door just now?

John: Cheryl, come on, what's the matter with you? When I was your age, I --

Cheryl: I bet you were pretty terrific.

John: Well -- but we're talking about you.

Cheryl: Me, huh?

John: Yeah.

Cheryl: Well, my life is pretty boring.

John: Oh, come on, Cheryl.

Cheryl: Yeah, it is. I waitress a little bit, I model a little bit. The most fun I've had in a long time was working on Jason's house with you.

John: Well, you do swing a mean hammer.

Cheryl: I thought we did a pretty good job.

John: Yeah. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the company and the conversation.

Cheryl: I like talking to you. You're different and real special.

John: No, you're the one that's special. And someday soon somebody's going to come along who is going to realize just how special you are.

Cheryl: Yeah, someday. I really don't want to think about that right now.

John: Listen, think about this -- finding me a menu. Ok?

Nicole: I'm sorry. I know I'm acting like a jerk.

Cass: Hey, your father just died.

Nicole: But I'm not all alone. I have you.

Cass: I'm glad you realize that.

Nicole: I'm really lucky.

Cass: I don't know if I'd go that far.

Nicole: No, I am. When I think about Donna and the baby --

Cass: You don't still think that was your fault, do you?

Nicole: You can't deny that she fell because she was here. You know, I can't even look at those stairs.

Cass: Reginald would have found her no matter where she was.

Nicole: But where she was was here.

Cass: Nicole, you can't go on blaming yourself for this. It wasn't your fault.

Nicole: I can't seem to do anything right.

Cass: Oh, I don't know. I could come up with a few things if I really put my mind to it.

Nicole: You know, you must be really sorry you got involved with me. All your money's gone. I've got nothing but problems.

Cass: Would you stop this? I want you to sit down.

Cass: I want you to talk to me.

Nicole: I have been talking.

Cass: No, you've been beating up on yourself. I'm sorry. Both your parents are gone and you feel lost.

Nicole: Yeah.

Cass: Well, that's only -- that's only natural, don't you think?

Nicole: Yeah, but my father was so rotten.

Cass: Your feelings are your feelings. There's nothing wrong with any of them.

Nicole: I wonder what my mother ever saw in him. Oh, there are so many things I would have liked to have asked her.

Cass: Was she a good mother?

Nicole: Hmm. My mother and father used to go out for dinner most nights. She'd tiptoe into my room when she got home. I can smell her perfume still. She had this husky voice. And she used to lean down and kiss me, and then she'd say "hi, pumpkin. Mama's home."

Cass: I wish I knew her.

Nicole: Oh, I wish you did, too, because you would have loved her. She was the most exciting, fun, warm person.

Cass: It sounds like she was a lot like you.

Nicole: I always wanted to be a lot like her.

Cass: Hmm. Just remember that nobody is perfect.

Nicole: Oh, I thought she was. But now --

Cass: What?

Nicole: I don't know. I keep wondering about a lot of things. Maybe I idealized her too much. You know? I mean, maybe I don't want to be like her at all.

Felicia: Hi.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: Oh, I'm not interrupting, am I?

Cass: No, no.

Nicole: Oh, of course not!

Felicia: You sure?

Cass: Yeah. You look a lot better than the last time I saw you, by the way.

Felicia: Well, I am a lot better, and both of you are going to be a lot better when I tell you my news.

Nicole: You have good news?

Felicia: The best.

Felicia: I don't want you to think that I'm butting in or anything like that.

Cass: Butting in on what?

Felicia: Well, I do know that financially you two are in a little bit of trouble, and, you know, me -- I'm going to do my bit, try and help you in any way I can.

Cass: Felicia, if you can help our financial situation, please butt away.

Felicia: Well, you are both aware that the Easter ball is coming up?

Cass: I'm sorry. I refuse to dress up as a rabbit.

Felicia: That's a good idea.

Cass: Shut up.

Felicia: Actually, that's not the work I got you.

Cass: You got us work? She got us work!

Felicia: You see, there are several women who are involved in the ball -- rich women, I might add --

Cass: Uh-huh.

Felicia: And I hate to boast, but I do have a certain -- well, influence in this town when it comes to fashion.

Cass: Mm-hmm, you do, and you told them about Nicole?

Felicia: Well, I said that Miss Nicole Love was very, very busy, but I would try to use my influence, since I did know her so well, to get her to design a few dresses for each of them.

Cass: Oh, this is great! Isn't this great?

Nicole: Great.

Felicia: You know, you were right, Cass.

Cass: About what this time?

Felicia: Well, people want what they can't have.

Cass: Or think they can't have.

Felicia: Well, the plan is working like a charm.

Nicole: What plan?

Felicia: The plan to get every woman, every fashionable woman, of course, in Bay City to be panting for a Nicole Love original.

Cass: Oh, no. Oh, no. Fashionable women do not pant. They clamor!

Felicia: Yes.

Cass: Nicole, isn't this great?

Nicole: What?

Cass: Honey, Felicia just got us a big bunch of orders.

Nicole: That's great.

Felicia: Now, listen, I hope you don't mind, but when I spoke to a couple of the women, they were so eager to talk to you that I said maybe you could this afternoon.

Nicole: Yeah. Yeah. I should be back by then.

Cass: Where are you going?

Nicole: Out.

Felicia: Nicole, I know the timing is lousy, but I think if you stay --

Nicole: Oh, no, it's ok. There's something I have to do first.

Cass: What? Nicole?

Mary: Oh, thank you so much. Bye.

I can't believe it!

I can't believe it!

Vince: Good news?

Mary: Oh, I never even thought they would seriously consider my application!

Vince: What application?

Mary: The hospital! The chief of staff wants to see me!

Vince: You applied to the hospital?

Mary: Uh-huh.

Vince: Well, what kind of job?

Mary: Well, they have a couple of openings!

I can't believe it!

Vince: Does this mean you're not going to go back to work for Michael?

Mary: Well, no, not if it works out!

Vince: Well, I guess, you know, if that's what you want.

Mary: Oh, I -- I got to fix my hair. I have to go do something. Wish me luck.

Vince: Good luck, good luck.

Mary: Thank you so much! Ok. Whoo!

Cheryl: What is mom so excited about?

Vince: Well, she's applying for a job at the hospital.

Cheryl: Really? Doing what?

Vince: How do I know?

Charlie: Darn! I can never figure this thing out!

John: Oh, come on, Charlie. I'm in a hurry.

Charlie: You wouldn't have correct change, would you?

Cheryl: Charlie, come here. It's this one. Ta-da! Piece of cake.

Charlie: Oh! I don't know why I can't remember!

Cheryl: Don't worry about it. There you go.

John: You can do just about anything, can't you? See you.

Cheryl: See you.

Julie Ann: He's quite a looker, isn't he?

Cheryl: Yeah, he is. Julie Ann, I didn't even see you. What are you doing here?

Julie Ann: Well, you were pretty preoccupied with John Hudson.

Cheryl: You're crazy. You know that?

Julie Ann: Well, I've heard of stranger things.

Cheryl: What are you talking about?

Julie Ann: You and John Hudson. Do you have a crush on him?

Ada: Here I am to the rescue!

Vince: Oh, I thought you were having lunch with Rachel.

Ada: Well, I thought about it, but I know how this place falls apart when I'm not here.

Vince: Well, actually, we're in pretty good shape.

Ada: Well, I'll prep the veggies for dinner.

Vince: Oh! Done.

Ada: I'll bet the dishes are backed up from lunch.

Vince: Ah -- Charlie did them.

Ada: Oh.

Vince: So, just take it easy and relax.

Ada: Work is how I relax. Now, why don't you go and take care of the customers. There's always plenty to do in here. Go.

Vince: Ok.

Ada: Go.

[Vince groans]

Ada: Go.

Vince: All right.

Ada: Go!

[Vince and Ada chuckle]

Ada: Ok.

Vince: Oh -- Ada, Ada! This came for you in the mail.

Ada: Oh. Thanks.

Vince: Right on.

Ada: Ah, it's from Nancy.

Vince: Ah, good. I got to get back!

Ada: Ok, go.

Ada: "Hi, Mom. How's cold, old Bay City? It's 80 degrees here in Phoenix. I'll bet you wish you were here." No. I wish you were here.

Mary: Hi.

Ada: Oh! Mary, you scared me!

Mary: I'm sorry.

Ada: Don't sneak up on a person like that.

Mary: Well, I am sorry. I didn't mean to sneak up on you.

Ada: Ok, forget it.

Mary: I thought today was your day off.

Ada: Well, can't I visit my own restaurant on my day off?

Mary: Well, of course you can.

Ada: Where are you going?

Mary: To the hospital. I have a job interview, but I'm not going anywhere until you and I talk.

Ada: What about?

Mary: About what's bothering you. Sit. Sit.

Ada: Nothing's bothering me.

Mary: That's from Nancy, isn't it? Is she all right?

Ada: Oh, she couldn't be better.

Mary: How does she like living in Arizona?

Ada: She loves it. She says it's the best thing that ever happened to her.

Mary: Why don't you go visit her?

Ada: I will when I have some time.

Mary: You're still her mother, you know? You're still a part of her life.

Ada: I know I'm her mother, but she has a life of her own now. So does Rachel, and so does Amanda.

Mary: Ada, Amanda just got married. She's not even gone.

Ada: I don't want to be one of those interfering mothers or grandmothers.

Mary: How could you possibly interfere?

Ada: Oh, it's very easy. I'm very good at it. I boss them around. I try to run their lives.

Mary: Has Rachel said something to you about this?

Ada: No, but then, she wouldn't.

Mary: Maybe because it isn't true.

Ada: I do have this habit of speaking my mind.

Mary: So, you probably know more than they do.

Ada: Or maybe they don't want to hear it.

Mary: Ada, they're your family. They love you.

Ada: I know that. And don't start telling me that I'm still a vital person. I know that, too.

Mary: Of course you do.

Ada: I like living alone. That's why I left Mac and Rachel's place in the first place.

Mary: Have you discussed this with Rachel?

Ada: Why should I discuss it with Rachel? There's nothing to discuss with Rachel. Everything is fine, perfectly fine!

Vince: Thought I heard your little voice. Listen, the place is becoming a zoo. I could really use your help.

Ada: You got it! See what I mean?

Mary: So I'll make a little stop on the way.

Felicia: Why -- why would she not tell you about something?

Cass: I don't know.

Felicia: I just hope I didn't presume too much -- you know, getting those orders after all that has just happened to her.

Cass: Oh, the work will do her good. I mean, it'll take her mind off things.

Felicia: That's exactly what I thought, but I don't know, maybe I should have said something to her before I went ahead and did anything.

Cass: Felicia, I'm sure she appreciates the help. I know I do.

Felicia: I know. You have no idea what's bothering her?

Cass: She does keep blaming herself for Donna's fall.

Felicia: Oh, but it was Reginald's fault.

Cass: I tried telling her that.

Felicia: I know how she must feel. It must be so strange to think about Reginald dying.

Cass: She just said that. I mean, he was her father.

Felicia: And he was also a very evil, horrible human being.

Cass: Yes, he was.

Felicia: You have no idea where she went?

Cass: No. I'm sure she'll tell me. I don't want to force her to talk.

Felicia: But, honey, she trusts you.

Cass: You know, she comes on so tough.

Felicia: I know.

Cass: People don't realize how much things hurt her.

Felicia: She's very lucky to have someone like you.

Cass: That's funny. I keep telling her the same thing.

Felicia: I'll bet.

[Cass and Felicia chuckle]

Felicia: I'm very happy for both of you.

Cass: Thank you. So have you heard from Mitch?

Felicia: Hmm.

Cass: "Hmm"?

Felicia: Hmm.

Cass: Hmm.

Felicia: He's taken a little side trip to Peru.

Cass: Hmm.

Felicia: Mm-hmm. I -- I'm expecting a llama.

Cass: Excuse me.

Felicia: Yes, you see, when he does these little business trips, he always tries to bring me back a little tacky souvenir, and so if he's in Peru, what else could it be but a plastic llama?

Cass: Llama, mm-hmm.

Felicia: Mm-hmm.

Cass: And he's such a romantic.

Felicia: Isn't he? Devil.

[Cass and Felicia laugh]

Cass: So when's the wedding?

Felicia: The middle of May, I think. You know, it's hard to get our schedules to coincide.

Cass: I'm sure you'll find the time.

Felicia: Yeah, I'm sure I will. Anyway, speaking of schedules, I really got to run.

Cass: Now, what's this about you going to see Jason Frame?

Felicia: I don't know! I have no idea what he wants.

Cass: Watch out for this guy. Don't let him sucker you into anything.

Felicia: What does that mean?

Cass: There's something about him I don't trust.

Felicia: Really?

Cass: Really.

Felicia: What, one con man to another? I'll remember that.

Cass: Do.

Felicia: Oh, now, listen to me -- I want you on your best behavior. You understand me?

Cass: What?

Felicia: These are very classy ladies.

Cass: Oh, don't worry. I'll charm the Gucci-Gucci-goos off them.

Felicia: Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of.

[Cass chuckles]

Felicia: You'll let me know what happens? Ok, bye.

Cass: Bye.

Felicia: Don't worry.

Cass: Something had better happen, or it's tap city.

John: I think we ought to just write up some papers. You know what I mean? 50/50?

Jason: Partnership papers? Attorneys, right? You're talking about a lot of money.

John: I'll pay my half.

Jason: What is it, Hudson? You don't trust me, either?

John: I don't trust anybody.

Jason: Oh.

John: But I especially don't trust someone who's been mixed up with Reginald Love.

Jason: You think I was mixed up with Reginald.

John: Oh, I don't know. You just seem a little bit more chipper since he croaked.

Jason: Do I have to remind you, he was trying to kill me?

John: Oh, yeah, oh, yeah. Curious, ain't it?

[Knock on door]

Jason: It's probably Felicia.

John: Well, say hi. I got some work to do.

Jason: Good!

John: Listen, don't forget what I was saying -- about the partnership, I mean.

Jason: Right. Hello. Nicole.

Nicole: Hi. I want to ask you something.

Jason: Well, sure. Ok, come in, come in. What can I do for you?

Nicole: It's funny, you know, but I never thought I'd ask you for anything, but you're the only one who can tell me the truth.

Jason: The truth about what?

Nicole: My mother. You know, the first time I ever met you, you gave me her watch.

Jason: I'm sorry about that. If I'd known what Reginald was going to do, I would not have given --

Nicole: But why did you have it?

Jason: I told you -- your mother gave it to me.

Nicole: Because you liked it?

Jason: Right.

Nicole: And it seems as though you knew her very well.

Jason: We were friends.

Nicole: You know, you once told me that I was a lot like her.

Jason: You know just how much you look like her.

Nicole: Well, I want to know if it's true. Am I like my mother? And how?

Jason: Nicole, what are you really getting at?

Nicole: Why would my mother be friends with someone like you?

Jason: Why? Because I happen to work for a living?

Nicole: No, because you have secrets. You hide things. My mother didn't seem like that kind of person to me. I just want to know if I'm wrong.

Jason: I know you don't like me, do you?

Nicole: Well, no, I don't like you very much, but you're the only one who can tell me the truth.

Jason: All right. What do you want to know?

Nicole: I want to know the real reason my mother gave you that watch. Now, she wouldn't give something like that to just a friend. That was a family heirloom.

Jason: Nicole, I mean, leave it alone!

Nicole: You know, all this time I have tried not to face up to the truth because I wanted to believe that my mother would never have an affair, especially with someone like you.

Jason: You don't know the whole story, do you?

Nicole: But if she was having an affair with you, then my father had a right to be angry, because she wasn't the perfect wife that she was pretending to be.

Jason: Whatever affairs Elizabeth had, they were justified.

Nicole: Affairs?

Jason: Yeah.

Nicole: Then you weren't the only one?

Jason: Reginald was horrible to her.

Nicole: Well, why didn't she just get a divorce, then?

Jason: Because she happened to have you and Donna and Peter to think about, that's why.

Nicole: Well, did she ever think about how we'd feel when we found out that our mother was a tramp?

Jason: Don't you ever say anything like that about your mother --

Nicole: Oh, no, and wonder why my father never wanted to talk about her.

Jason: The man was an absolute -- he didn't know the first thing about taking care of her, and she would have been loyal to the right man.

Nicole: Oh, yeah?

Jason: Yeah.

Nicole: Well, then it's too bad she fell for you, isn't it?

Loretta: Rachel, you would not believe what those two have been up to.

Rachel: What two?

Loretta: Amanda and Sam.

Rachel: Oh.

Loretta: Oh, Amanda called a little while ago, and I didn't know where you were, so I took the call.

Rachel: Well, how are they enjoying Palm Beach?

Loretta: Palm Beach? Try Tennessee.

Rachel: Tennessee?

Loretta: Working in a diner, no less.

Rachel: No, wait a minute, wait a minute -- back up. They're supposed to be on their honeymoon at our place in Palm Beach.

Loretta: Well, they stayed there for a couple of nights, but they got bored, so they decided to drive back.

Rachel: Tennessee -- did you just say that they were working in a diner?

Loretta: That's right. Sam's car was stolen.

Rachel: Oh, no!

Loretta: They were there, they were short of money, and there was this diner, so -- isn't right out of a 1930s movie?

Rachel: But why didn't he call me if he didn't -- if he had needed money?

Loretta: Well, can you imagine Sam asking Mac for money?

Rachel: Well, Amanda could have called us.

Loretta: Amanda's Sam's wife now.

Rachel: Yes, but she's pregnant.

Loretta: And she said she has never felt better or happier in her whole life.

Rachel: Well, are they on their way home?

Loretta: Yes, they're coming in today. That's why they called.

Rachel: I can't understand why they didn't call if they were in trouble. I mean, that's what a family's for.

Loretta: Well, kids have a way of growing up and away from families.

Rachel: I don't like that.

Loretta: I still miss having my boys at home, but c'est la vie. We can have a good cry over lunch. Are you ready?

Rachel: Yeah, just about.

[Doorbell rings]

Rachel: Better answer that.

Loretta: Well, I'll just go get my things.

Rachel: Sure.

Mary: Hi.

Rachel: Hi, Mary.

Mary: Hope this is a good time.

Rachel: I'm on my way out.

Mary: Oh, I just need two minutes.

Rachel: Ok, come on in.

Mary: It's about Ada.

Rachel: What? What about her? Is she all right?

Mary: She would never admit this, but I think there's been --

Rachel: Wait a minute, wait a minute. She was just over here. She looked fine.

Mary: Oh, no. I don't mean she's not well. She is. She doesn't know that I'm telling you this.

Rachel: What? What is it?

Mary: I was just having a talk with her over at Mary's, and she seems very down to me, and she won't admit that anything is wrong.

Rachel: But you think something is.

Mary: Yeah. I think that ever since Nancy left she's been feeling kind of left out.

Rachel: Left out? She helped us with the wedding. She's here all the time.

Mary: Yeah, I think it's more the sort of thing where she feels everybody else is involved with their own lives and she doesn't really know what her place is.

Rachel: Her place is with us. We're her family.

Mary: Maybe you need to tell her that.

Julie Ann: Cheryl, I saw the way you were looking.

Cheryl: So, I was looking at him, Julie.

Julie Ann: It was quite a telling look.

Cheryl: Would you give me a break?

Julie Ann: So, would you go out with him?

Cheryl: He wouldn't ask me.

Julie Ann: Why not?

Cheryl: Because.

Julie Ann: Look, half the guys in Bay City would kill to go out with you.

Cheryl: Now, that is ridiculous.

Julie Ann: They would.

Cheryl: Oh, yeah. Is that why I sit home by myself every night?

Julie Ann: Cheryl, you intimidate guys.

Cheryl: Me, intimidating?

Julie Ann: You're pretty, you're intelligent, you're a model.

Cheryl: Yeah, right.

Julie Ann: You are.

Cheryl: Why should that be intimidating?

Julie Ann: Look, guys are shy and insecure, just as we are. In fact, that's one of the reasons I came here.

Cheryl: Why?

Julie Ann: I work with this really good-looking guy, and he wants to go out with you.

Cheryl: Really?

Julie Ann: Yeah. He saw you in here, and he's been too shy to ask you out.

Cheryl: He wants to ask me out?

Julie Ann: Yeah, so I thought one night we could go out on a foursome.

Cheryl: Foursome?

Julie Ann: Well, see, this guy that likes you, he has a friend that I really like.

Cheryl: Ok, Julie Ann, now I get it.

Julie Ann: Please -- look, he's really good-looking.

Cheryl: Right. Who, the guy that you're trying to set me up or your guy?

Julie Ann: Both. Come on, we'll have a great time.

Cheryl: I don't know. Blind dates --

Julie Ann: Well, you can sit home and moon over John Hudson.

Cheryl: I do not have a crush on him.

Julie Ann: So, then say you'll go out with us.

Cheryl: What's this guy like? I mean, is he nice?

Julie Ann: I wouldn't even mention him if he weren't nice.

Cheryl: Ok.

Julie Ann: Great. Well, I'll let the guys know. You won't regret this.

Cheryl: Yeah, right. We'll see about that.

Vince: You hear from your mom?

Cheryl: John -- of course not, pops.

Vince: "John"? (Tearing noise...Ding, ding)

Rachel: Mom, why didn't you tell me?

Loretta: Ready to go? I'm starving.

Rachel: Oh, well, I --

Loretta: I have such an appetite for cold poached salmon in caper sauce. Doesn't that sound delish?

Rachel: Loretta, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to join you for your lunch.

Loretta: Oh, no. Is something wrong?

Rachel: Um -- family. I'm sorry.

Loretta: Oh, now, Rachel, you mustn't worry about Sam and Amanda.

Rachel: No, this isn't about Sam and Amanda. It's family.

Loretta: I understand. Family comes first.

Rachel: Well, we'll do it another time, all right?

Loretta: Of course, of course. Well, don't worry about me. I'll just putt around the house.

Rachel: Well, why don't you go out?

Loretta: Well, it is a lovely day. I don't suppose you have a bus schedule.

Rachel: No, take our driver. He'll take you wherever you want to go.

Loretta: Oh, no. I couldn't possibly impose.

Rachel: Oh, sure, go on. Go on out. Go downtown. Go shopping.

Loretta: I -- I don't think I want to go shopping, thanks.

Rachel: The driver's name is Jonathan, and he's very nice. Mac doesn't need the car, and neither do I.

Loretta: I -- I really couldn't. I --

Rachel: Oh, come on. I insist. There are some nice sales this time of year.

Loretta: Well, if you insist.

Rachel: Good. I'll see you around dinnertime, all right? Have fun.

Loretta: Shopping in a chauffeured limo. Oh, Sam. I can buy something, same as the next person, right, Loretta? Right.

Jason: I apologize, the place is still a mess.

Felicia: No, it's ok. John told me you're doing some restoration.

Jason: That's the understatement of the century.

Felicia: So is that why you invited me out here? You want my superb decorating advice?

Jason: No. I'd really like your superb culinary advice.

Felicia: Ah -- obviously, you've never seen me in the kitchen.

Jason: I don't want you to cook.

Felicia: Thank goodness for small favors.

Jason: No, I'd like Tops to cater a dinner that I want to have for Jamie and Lisa.

Felicia: Really? Well, that's very nice. Why?

Jason: He's my nephew. They had me over for dinner.

Felicia: Ah, you want to return the favor. Jason, I'm sorry, but don't you cook anything?

Jason: Yeah. I cook mean hot dogs and beans, but I think for my nephew and your niece I wanted the best, which is why I called you.

Felicia: I see. Well, you know, right now my schedule is just a little bit busy.

Jason: That's fine, because it's in the spring sometime and we'll have a chance to finish the place, and then we can have a good, big bash.

Felicia: Maybe even a farm wedding, huh?

Jason: I like that idea. Nice.

Felicia: Are you sure you're going to be comfortable with food from Tops?

Jason: I'm comfortable working with you.

Felicia: Me?

Jason: I'd like to be friends. Lisa, Jamie, you, and I are practically related.

Felicia: Right, right. Look, do you think maybe we could talk about this next week?

Jason: Sure. I'll stop by Tops.

Felicia: Great. I have a long drive back to town.

Jason: Thank you again, Felicia.

Felicia: You're welcome. Bye.

Jason: Bye.

Felicia: Bye. Oh, sorry. Yeah.

John: Felicia leave?

Jason: Yeah, just now.

John: What's she doing out here?

Jason: She's going to cater a dinner I'm doing for Jamie.

John: Oh, yeah? What's the occasion?

Jason: No occasion. I just think it's nice to have a relationship with your nephew, so --

John: Who happens to be the son of the woman who holds title to the Frame Construction Company.

Jason: Johnny, you don't trust me about anything.

John: Well, I watch you play all the angles.

Jason: Well, isn't that what a good business partner's supposed to do?

John: It depends on who he's doing business with.

Jason: What is it? All day you've been beating around the bush. Something is bugging you. What is it?

John: This. You want to tell me what you're doing with Reginald Love's briefcase?

Mary: Hey. Hi, sweetie-pie.

Ada: Uh-oh. It didn't go well, did it?

Mary: What?

Cheryl: The job interview.

Mary: No, I think it went ok.

Ada: Then why the face?

Mary: Oh. I just stopped to see Donna before I left the hospital.

Ada: How's she doing?

Mary: Well, she may be going home soon.

Ada: Without her baby.

Mary: Mm-hmm.

Ada: It's sad to carry a baby for six months and lose it.

Mary: Yes, it must be terrible.

Cheryl: Poor Donna.

Mary: She was being so sweet. She kept asking me about my job interview, and --

Cheryl: You never did tell us how it went.

Mary: Oh, well, I met with the chief of staff. He seemed to like what I had put on my job application, and --

Ada: And you got the job!

Mary: Well, not yet, but I do think it went well.

Cheryl: Oh -- that's terrific, Mom. I bet they'll have you run the whole hospital.

Mary: Not quite. But there is an opening in the psychology department for a social worker.

Ada: You? No kidding!

Mary: Maybe.

Vince: Hey, how'd the job interview go?

Cheryl: She got the job.

Mary: Not yet!

Cheryl: Well, she will. I'm very proud of you, Mom.

Mary: Thanks.

Vince: Well, what will you be doing?

Mary: Working in the psychology department as a social worker. Maybe.

Vince: Well, whatever. Congratulations.

Mary: Thanks.

Ada: I'm proud of you, pal.

Mary: Thank you.

Vince: Cheryl, you got a customer.

Cheryl: Ok. Congratulations.

Mary: Thanks, honey. Well, I better get back to the office. You don't need me for anything, do you?

Vince: You don't do dishes, do you, Dr. Freud?

Mary: I'm not a doctor. I have to get my briefcase.

Ada: Ok. Well, that's wonderful about Mary, isn't it?

Vince: Yeah. It's wonderful.

Cass: What do you think of this one here, ladies?

Woman: I'm amazed that you can function at all.

Cass: Well, if you weren't such close personal friends of Miss Gallant's --

Woman: Oh, you will be able to fit us in, won't you?

Cass: It'll be a struggle, but for you we'll make every, every effort. Hi. Nicole --

Nicole: Oh, I don't want to talk right now, Cass.

Cass: Nicole --

Nicole: No.

Cass: These are the women that Felicia recommended.

Nicole: I can't see anyone right now.

Woman: But the Easter ball --

Nicole: If you could please just come back tomorrow.

Woman: Oh, but you --

Cass: Ladies, Miss Love has a great number of appointments today. You understand, don't you?

Woman: Well, I suppose so.

Cass: Elizabeth -- may I call you Elizabeth?

Elizabeth: Certainly.

Cass: Thank you. And, Betsy?

Betsy: Yes.

Cass: Listen, see, she's already started thinking about your gowns. And when the creative wheels start turning --

Betsy: But have you seen the designs?

Cass: Oh -- all I will say is that they will definitely be worth the wait, I promise you. So, till tomorrow?

Betsy: Well, I suppose.

Cass: Tomorrow?

Elizabeth: Tomorrow.

Cass: Good. Thank you so much, ladies. You are too kind, really. And as I said, you will not regret it. It will definitely be worth the wait.

Nicole: I'm sorry.

Cass: Are you ok?

Nicole: I don't know.

Cass: Where did you go?

Nicole: He has to be a liar. He just has to be.

Cass: Who?

Nicole: Jason Frame.

Cass: Why did you see him?

Nicole: You know, I knew I was my father's daughter, that he was a part of who I am.

Cass: That's ridiculous. That's just biology.

Nicole: But everybody said I was like mama, even Jason Frame. And I knew -- I knew that she was so sweet and good.

Cass: What did he say to you?

Nicole: You know, it turns out that you were right. Nobody's perfect.

Cass: So what?

Nicole: Cass, look at my family. Look what I came from. Do you think we even have a chance?

Cass: Nicole --

Ada: Why are you acting like a jerk?

Vince: Haven't you heard? My middle name is jerk.

Ada: You hate Mary taking this hospital job, don't you?

Vince: Hey, I said I was happy, didn't I?

Ada: Yeah, but you're not. The whole idea of her taking a job in this hospital scares you.

Vince: What? Scares me? That -- that's ridiculous.

Ada: What are you scared of?

Vince: Well, you know, when we were first married, Mary -- Mary used to read all the time, you know? She knew everything. Then, when the kids came along -- but she was always -- well, you know.

Ada: Mary's a smart lady.

Vince: Yeah, and I'm not such a smart guy.

Ada: Vince --

Vince: No, no, no, I mean, I know things, but I don't -- well, I don't know them like she knows them. She's kind of -- she's special.

Ada: So are you.

Vince: I'm an ordinary working stiff, you know? What is a psychiatric social worker going to do with a guy who slings hash for a living?

Ada: Now, that is dumb.

Vince: Thank you.

Ada: Some of the smartest people in the world don't know half of what you know about loving somebody. I mean, a good heart is better than a good book any day.

Vince: What do you got against learning?

Ada: Oh, Vince, come on. Listen to me.

Vince: I am listening, I am. Maybe you ought to be the psychologist.

Rachel: Hi, Vince. Hi, Mom.

Vince: Oh, hi, Rachel.

Ada: Hi. What are you doing here? I thought you were going out with Loretta.

Rachel: I came to talk to you.

Vince: That's a hint.

Rachel: Thanks, Vince.

Vince: Right.

Ada: What do you want to talk to me about?

Rachel: You.

John: This is Reginald's, isn't it? You see these initials here -- R.L.?

Jason: Yeah. I won that in a poker game.

John: A poker game? With Reginald?

Jason: Yeah. Hey, there is still cash inside, isn't there, John?

John: What were you doing in a poker game with Reginald? I thought you hated his guts.

Jason: The guys and me were having a little game. Reginald just happened to stop by.

John: Ah, well, see, maybe that's the problem. I never thought of Reginald as one of the guys.

Jason: I had a very hot streak going. I was not going to stop playing poker because Reginald stopped by. And I haven't had a real good game of chance since then. Good idea.

John: Yeah, too bad Reg isn't around.

Jason: Yeah, because I cleaned him out that night. How about you? You in the mood for a little game of chance? A little cards?

John: No. No. Two-handed poker's never been my style.

Jason: I don't know. I'll call Jamie, have him bring some of his friends over, a little --

John: Well, there you go. I mean, you've been wanting to get closer to him anyway, right?

Jason: Right!

John: Yeah. Well, that would be a good idea, although I don't know that I would like the odds. He's liable to be a real good poker player.

Jason: Why do you say that?

John: He's a Frame, isn't he?

Jason: Yeah, and I'll never let him forget that. Well, you in or you out?

John: Sure. Count me in.

Cass: Hey.

Nicole: Hey, don't.

Cass: It doesn't matter about your family. You're still you.

Nicole: Me? I don't even know who that is.

Cass: What did Jason say to you? What did he tell you?

Nicole: About the affairs, all the men.

Cass: That has nothing to do with you.

Nicole: Oh, yes it does, because all of a sudden a lot of things made sense.

Cass: What things?

Nicole: Well, I knew it was true, and I knew why she did it.

Cass: How could you know?

Nicole: Because I am like her. She was so scared, so needful that nobody could love her enough.

Cass: Well, from what I know, your mother's relationships were not about love.

Nicole: From what you know?

Cass: No, I just --

Nicole: No, you mean you knew about her?

Cass: Nicole --

Nicole: How?

Cass: Donna talked to me.

Nicole: And you didn't -- you didn't tell me? Why didn't you say anything?

Cass: We all felt that if you knew about --

Nicole: Knew about what?

Cass: Uh -- the affairs. If you knew about the affairs.

Nicole: What, that my mother went through man after man until she finally killed herself? You didn't think I'd want to know about that?

Cass: Nicole, that's not how it was.

Nicole: You all know something else about my mother, don't you? You tell me. You tell me how it was.
