Amanda: So we ran out of places for people to sit. I'm just going to put these pillows on the floor, ok? Anyway, I really hope that this works out ok. I mean, it is our first -- first party that we're throwing as a couple, you know? Sam, Dr. Crane just called. She said I'm having quintuplets.

Sam: What?

Amanda: I love you.

Sam: Quintuplets? You're having quintuplets?

[Knock on door]

Amanda: I'm just joking. I'll get that.

Sam: Quintuplets. Cute.

Amanda: Matthew.

Matthew: Hi, sis.

Amanda: You're early.

Matthew: Yeah, well, I came to help out.

Amanda: A likely story.

Matthew: Wow! That's great!

Sam: Thank you.

Matthew: Oh, here's your mail. It was in a pile on the floor downstairs.

Sam: Yeah, that's our great mailman, you know what I mean?

Matthew: Yeah. I mean, this is really awesome here.

Sam: Uh, Matthew, Matthew -- it's not finished yet.

Matthew: Ok, ok. It's going to be awesome.

Sam: Well, at least you've got good taste. What is this?

Amanda: What?

Sam: It's from the landlord.

Amanda: Oh, yeah. How much is our rent increase?

Sam: What, you knew about this?

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Sam: Oh, holy --

Matthew: Hey, hey, come on. It's only money. What's the big deal?

Ada: Amanda and Sam might think they have enough, but we'd better bring that other pie just to be sure.

Rachel: You think so?

Ada: Yes, I do.

Rachel: You've talked me into it.

Ada: Ok.

Jason: Ada, I'm looking for a guy named Whitsett. He's got sandy hair, he's about 6'1", a mustache.

Ada: You just missed him.

Jason: He was here?

Ada: Yeah, he asked about you, then he waited for about a half an hour, and then he left about five minutes ago.

Jason: I was afraid of that. Oh --

Ada: Where were you?

Jason: Well, I haven't been feeling well today. I laid down, I fell asleep. Now I have slept through the most important meeting with the subcontractor that I could possibly have.

Ada: How about a cup of tea?

Jason: Thanks.

Ada: You'll feel better.

Jason: The guy could have brought more work into Frame Construction than all of them put together.

Rachel: No sense feeling badly about it.

Jason: What?

Rachel: Frame Construction isn't yours.

Jason: I may not get the company name, but I still have a company.

Rachel: With no reputation, no experience? Good luck.

Jason: Thank you.

Rachel: Mom, I'll meet you at the house. We'll go together.

Ada: Ok, honey. I'll see you soon.

Rachel: Bye-bye. Yeah.

Ada: Be careful with those.

Rachel: Ok.

Mary: Ooh, goodies.

Rachel: Desserts for Sam and Amanda. See you.

Mary: Ah. Bye. Hello.

Ada: Well, you look chipper.

Mary: Had a good day. I had a real good second interview at the hospital today.

Ada: Good.

Mary: You know, I just may get that job.

Ada: Terrific!

Mary: Yeah, maybe. We'll see. I hope.

Jason: Is that hospital job?

Mary: Oh. I didn't know you were here.

Jason: I guess congrats are in order.

Mary: Well, maybe. I hope.

Jason: Vinnie's going to be real proud.

Mary: Mm-hmm.

Jason: Best of luck.

Mary: Thanks.

Ada and Mary: Jason!

Mary: What's wrong? What?

Jason: Nothing.

Cass: Of course we're trying to fit you in, Mrs. Jameson. That's why I'm calling. Uh -- let me take a look at my schedule, all right? Yeah, I think -- how about 2:15 tomorrow? Great. And if you only knew who we were bumping off the list in order to fit you in.

[Cass laughs]

Cass: Oh, no, no, no, I couldn't tell you that. I mean, I'm sorry I even brought it up. So don't forget -- tomorrow, 2:15, and don't be late or we'll have to bump you off the list, too, Mrs. Jame-- I'm just teasing, Mrs. Jameson. We'll see you then. Bye-bye. Oh, I love the part where I tell them if they only knew who we were bumping off the list in order to get them in to see you.

Nicole: Yeah. Sounds like you're -- like you're really doing -- I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Cass: Hey, what is it?

Nicole: Oh, Cass, just hold me.

Cass: Hey, what is it?

Nicole: Nothing, it's just -- it's me. It's just me.

Cass: It's ok. I've got you.

Nicole: Oh, I'm glad you're here.

Cass: Did you just come from seeing Donna?

Nicole: Yeah. She's -- she's just hurting so much.

Cass: Of course she is. And Michael, too.

Nicole: Losing that baby --

Cass: I know. Especially six months along. I mean, that's rough.

Nicole: Yeah.

Cass: That's really rough. How is she handling it?

Nicole: Barely, if at all.

Cass: What?

Nicole: Oh, Michael went over to his mother's farm to plant a tree. Sort of a memorial for the baby.

Cass: And Donna?

Nicole: Well, she said she couldn't face it.

Cass: They're together. They'll get through this.

Nicole: Well, that's what I told her. You know, she's keeping things bottled up. But then we talked, and -- and she finally decided that she wanted to go over there.

Cass: Did you drive her over?

Nicole: Yeah. Um -- it's ok. I'll be all right. But Donna, you -- I'm just glad to see her dealing with all of this, making that effort, you know? You know what?

Cass: What?

Nicole: It was a beautiful spring day.

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: And it was like -- I don't know. Planting that tree -- it was a way to think about life, not just death. It was a way to somehow keep that baby alive. Maybe that sounds stupid.

Cass: No, not at all. It doesn't sound stupid at all. That's how things work. They're going to get through this and you're going to get through this.

Nicole: I know. And I love you. Hey!

Cass: Uh --

Nicole: What were you doing on the phone, huh?

Cass: What?

Nicole: Telling that woman that she had gotten an appointment because you told someone else -- you canceled somebody else's?

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: That's terrible!

Cass: Terrible but effective.

Nicole: Except what's going to happen when they find out we can't deliver? What happens when the baroness spreads the word?

Cass: Spreads what word?

Nicole: Cass, I can't make good on those six dresses, remember?

Cass: But today's not the delivery date.

Nicole: Today, tomorrow -- what's the difference?

Cass: Come with me.

[Cass whistles]

Nicole: Cass --

Cass: What?

Nicole: Is this your answer to everything?

Cass: Did anybody ever tell you you have a dirty mind?

Nicole: I didn't used to.

Cass: Come on.

Mary: Ok, just -- just sit down easy.

Jason: I am -- I'm fine. I'm fine.

Ada: Sure, you are. Charlie, would you get a glass of water quick, please?

Mary: All right, now, are you feeling a little lightheaded?

Jason: No, I -- I just haven't felt good today, and then my legs got a little rubbery, that's all.

Ada: Your eyes are rolling around in your head, pal.

Jason: I'm a little under the weather. You don't have to order a coffin for me.

[Phone rings]

Mary: Let me see.

Jason: What?

Mary: Well, you feel a little hot.

Jason: Do I?

Mary: Yeah, a little bit.

Charlie: Ada, it's that guy about the plumbing!

Ada: Oh, him. Excuse me.

Mary: Charlie, what about --

Ada: Thank you, Charlie.

Mary: She would forget her head.

Ada: Hello? Here. Here you go. Yeah, yeah.

What? That's outrageous!

Jason: Oh. I wondered where you went, honey.

Mary: Drink this.

Jason: Thanks.

Mary: Gee, your face looks a little red.

Jason: Maybe I'm just blushing.

Mary: Don't start. I think you should go see a doctor.

Jason: No, no doctors.

Mary: Why not?

Jason: I will not see a doctor. Just go home and I'll -- I'll rest.

Mary: All right, now, look at that. Are you all right?

Jason: I am fine. I got up too quickly. But I don't think I ought to drive home. I -- is Vinnie back in the back? I mean, he --

Mary: No, he's at the wholesale house. Why?

Jason: Oh, that's fine. I'll just drive myself. I'm fine. Bye.

Mary: Don't be stupid. Jason --

Jason: What?

Mary: I'll drive you. Just -- I'll drive you.

Jason: Would you?

Mary: Yes, I will. It would be ridiculous for you to be on the road. Just wait for me over there. I'll be right there.

Jason: Ok.

Mary: Go on. I'll take you in my car. Ada?

Ada: Hmm?

Mary: I'm going to drive Jason home. He's not well.

Ada: He isn't?

Mary: No. I'll see you later.

Ada: Ok.

Ada: Jamie? Yeah, hi. It's grandma. No, I'm ok. I'm ok. But I think there's a house call you should make.

Sam: Well, when we figured out our budget, we didn't figure on a rent increase, at least not this much.

Amanda: How bad is it?

Sam: 60 bucks a month.

Matthew: Ooh! Hey, come on. What's that? 10, 15 bucks a week? Come on, we're having a party here. Relax. Let's just --

Amanda: Matthew, why don't you go and check on the refrigerator?

Matthew: What? Check -- oh. Gotcha.

Amanda: Good. Good. I was going to tell you. Um --

Sam: When did you find out about this?

Amanda: Just earlier today. I guess with all the fuss about the party and everything, I just forgot.

Sam: Yeah, right.

Amanda: Look, I was hoping that we could talk about this, you know -- just you and me -- and figure out what we're going to do.

Sam: Well, what we've got to do is we've got to pay it. Somehow.

Amanda: Yeah, but that's just what I'm talking about. I thought maybe we could talk about a budget.

Sam: I'll tell you what. Don't worry about this. I'll handle it, ok?

Amanda: Look, my savings account could really --

Sam: No. No. Let me take care of this. Please?

Amanda: But that's what savings accounts are for.

Sam: I know that. But ever since that deal with my mother a couple of years ago --

Amanda: What, the guy? The rich guy? Whatever?

Sam: Yeah. See, I've got this thing about making sure I can pay my own bills.

Amanda: But the rent is our bill.

Sam: I know. But, please, let me handle this one. Trust me?

Amanda: Ok. I'll -- I'll try.

Sam: Thanks.

Amanda: I mean, I know that your mother -- well, that's another problem.

Sam: Amanda, what's going on?

Amanda: Nothing. It's ok.

Sam: Amanda.

Amanda: No, really, it can wait.

Sam: No, it can't. You can tell me now. What's going on?

Amanda: A -- a present from your mother.

Sam: That she didn't pay for.

Amanda: She gave it to me right after we returned from our honeymoon.

Sam: Yeah, but she gave a receipt for that -- for that pink thing for the baby.

Amanda: I know. This was later. She pulled me aside and said, "don't tell anybody, but it's just a little something from me to you."

Sam: Yeah. Well, look, I'm glad you told me.

Amanda: So what are you going to do?

Sam: I don't know.

Amanda: Don't be mad at her, ok?

Sam: Amanda, look, I can't help feeling what I'm feeling right now.

Amanda: I know. Look, I was talking to Mary McKinnon about --

Sam: You told somebody about my --

Amanda: Shh. Mary McKinnon is a counselor. And -- and I just told her that I was talking about a friend of mine. She has no idea.

Sam: Oh, great. I'm sure she bought that one.

Amanda: She was telling me that people that shoplift do it because they think their lives are empty. And they steal things for the risk, to try and add excitement to their life.

Sam: What am I supposed to do with that information?

Amanda: I don't know. But we have to do something.

Sam: Yeah. Well, when Mitch gets back, we'll deal with it then.

Amanda: Good. I think you've been dealing with this by yourself for far too long. I know that Mitch and your mother have their problems, but I think the two of you might be able to work past them.

[Rock music plays]

Matthew: Hey, can a starving man get close enough to get some potato chips yet?

Amanda: Yes, we're through. You can get close enough. But could you please turn that down?

Matthew: "Could you please turn that down?" You sound just like mom.

Sam: On that note, I think I'm going to change. In the bathroom I'm going to change.

Amanda: Matthew!

Matthew: What?

Amanda: You are so gross. You used to have manners. I mean, what happened when you went away to prep school? What did they teach you?

Matthew: Same thing they taught you at that finishing school. How to become a fine and upstanding young person.

Amanda: Yes, well, wasn't this the fine, upstanding young person that decided to add an extra day to his vacation by leaving early?

Matthew: Oh, come on. It was one day.

[Knock on door]

Matthew: Better get that.


Vicky: Hi, Amanda.

Amanda: Hi.

Vicky: I know I'm early. I'm --

Amanda: Oh, that's quite all right. You just saved my brother a nice long lecture.

Vicky: Oh.

Matthew: Yeah, she started in about the manners bit, you know?

Vicky: Hi, Matthew.

Matthew: Hi. I mean, can you believe that? Manners?

Vicky: Yeah. Oh, I want to give this you. It's from Mary.

Amanda: Thanks.

Vicky: You're welcome.

Amanda: Thanks. And don't you look sexy today.

Vicky: Oh, why, thank you. Do I really?

Matthew: Yes.

Amanda: Matthew.

Matthew: I know. You want me to go check out the refrigerator.

Vicky: Cute. Is Jamie here?

Amanda: No. No, not yet. Look, I wanted to tell you how sorry I am about what happened to your mom.

Vicky: Oh, Amanda, that's sweet. Thank you. She's -- she's all right. That's really one reason I came over a little bit early. I wanted to give my mom and dad some time alone, you know?

Amanda: Oh.

Vicky: I hope I'm not going to be in the way.

Amanda: Oh, don't apologize. No. In fact, I could even use some help setting some things up.

Vicky: Well, I'm your girl.

Amanda: Ok. Matthew, stop playing around. Come down here and take her coat, ok?

Matthew: Sorry.

Vicky: Is Jamie going to be here?

Matthew: Sure.

Vicky: Oh, good.

Mary: Easy. Ok.

Jason: I'm fine, Mary. I am fine now.

Mary: Just sit down.

Jason: All right!

Mary: Sit down.

Jason: Thank you very much for bringing me home.

Mary: Sit down!

Jason: Yes. That's good advice. You're going to be very good as a counselor at the hospital.

Mary: Let's hope the patients listen the first time.

Jason: What would you think of me if every time you said something, I did a --

[Jason coughs]

Mary: I'd think you were an extremely intelligent man. How do we get some heat in here?

Jason: Oh, it's real simple. You get a piece of wood off the floor and you put it in the stove.

Mary: Right. Simple.

Jason: Yeah. You just think I'm some dumb old sailor, don't you?

Mary: I did not say that to you! Why do you keep putting words into my -- why are we always arguing about everything?

Jason: Ahem -- probably because we're very much alike. We're both independent.

Mary: Yeah, right, sure. Why didn't I notice that?

Jason: Hey, when we want something, we go out and we get it. And I'm very proud that you went out and got that hospital job.

Mary: What?

Jason: No, I mean it. You wanted it. You went out and you got it.

Mary: Yeah. Guess I did, didn't I?

Jason: Hey, and don't worry about Vinnie.

Mary: Why would I worry about him?

Jason: Well, he may not seem real excited now, but he will be.

Mary: Well, of course he's excited.

Jason: Mary, I've known him a long time. He's just -- a little insecurity thing, now, that's all.

Mary: I think the fever is affecting your head.

Jason: Mary, he'll come around.

Mary: Yeah, well, he better. I do not want to discuss this with you.

Jason: Why not?

Mary: Because you irritate the heck out of me.

Jason: Because we happen to be very much alike. Independent.

Mary: Independent, right. Yeah, I know. I got to go.

Jason: No, hey -- look, stay -- stay and have dinner with me.

Mary: I can't.

Jason: I don't -- I don't feel like -- you know, I can't -- I can't make anything. You could rustle up something, couldn't you?

Mary: No, I couldn't.

Jason: Mary, you owe me dinner yet, remember?

Mary: Jason --

[knock on door]

Jamie: Jason? Ah, good, you're here. He's here.

Jason: Jamie.

Jamie: Hi.

Mary: Hi. Hi.

Lisa: Hi. We heard somebody was sick here.

Jason: You what?

Jamie: Yeah, I was told you practically fell flat on your face in the restaurant.

Jason: Who told you that?

Jamie: Grandma.

Jason: Ada.

Mary: Oh, isn't that nice? She arranged a house call for you.

Jason: Yeah, well, remind me to thank her sometime.

Jamie: Mm-hmm.

Cass: Well, I figured that the baroness was such a delightful creature, we couldn't let her down, you know?

Nicole: Who are these --

Cass: Caution. Seamstresses at work.

Nicole: Cass, that is delicate fabric.

Cass: What?

Nicole: I can't believe you hired these -- these --

Cass: Seamstresses.

Nicole: These women, who all happen to be awfully attractive, wouldn't you say?

Cass: Hold on -- hold on just a second.

Nicole: But that we'll deal with later. Now, I will not have rank amateurs in here working on my designs.

Cass: Nicole --

Nicole: First of all, they are much too difficult.

Cass: Nicole --

Nicole: And second of all, that's all the fabric we've got. I mean, just -- just look at this! Look at this workmanship, huh? It's -- it's just absolutely -- perfect. How can that be?

Jason: I got to have a little talk to you about your bedside manner, kid.

Jamie: Give me a break.

Mary: He actually got wobbly a couple of times in the restaurant. Ada didn't see that.

Lisa: Did Jason ask you to drive him home?

Mary: Um -- no. No, he was looking for Vince. But Vince wasn't there, so I volunteered. Why?

Lisa: Just curious.

Mary: Well, he was dizzy. It would have been dangerous for him to drive.

Lisa: Of course.

Jamie: Ok, that's it. Jason, I hate to tell you this, but you're going to live.

Jason: Thanks, Snuffy.

Jamie: I want you to take aspirin, plenty of liquids, and call me in the morning.

Jason: You went to med school to learn that?

Jamie: Impressive, huh?

Jason: Yeah. Tell me, is Ada going to pay for this house call?

Jamie: No, I'm going to put it on your tab.

Mary: What's wrong with him?

Jamie: A virus that's going around.

Mary: But he'll be ok?

Jamie: Uh-huh. But I meant it when I said to call me in the morning.

Jason: Ok, fine, fine.

Jamie: If you're still feeling dizzy, you might have a problem with your inner ear, and that could get serious, capisce?

Jason: Ok, Doctor, I capisce.

Jamie: All right.

Jason: Thank you guys for coming all this way.

Jamie: My pleasure. Lisa, I think we've stalled long enough. We have to make it to the present party.

Lisa: All set.

Jason: You can come again sometime. We'll do another party, all right?

Lisa: Sure. Bye.

Jason: Bye.

Mary: Bye.

Jamie: Don't forget.

Jason: I won't!

Jamie: Bye-bye.

Mary: Bye.

Jason: Good old Ada.

Mary: You heard him. She did the right thing.

Jason: Before they came in here, you were about to make me a nice, homemade dinner.

Mary: No, I was not. I was leaving.

Jason: You heard what the doctor said. Mary, I got to have liquids, lots of liquids. You can make me soup. Liquid, right?

Mary: Ok, soup.

Jason: Now you're cooking.

Mary: But then I have got to go.

Jason: Yeah, yeah, you do.

Nicole: I don't understand. This is -- it's gorgeous, it's perfect. Who are you?

Woman: My name is Mimi D'Aisson.

Nicole: You're -- you're from France?

Mimi: Yes. I don't understand. Mssr. Winthrop --

Cass: Oh, she's just a little curious.

Nicole: No, I'm not. I'm absolutely dumbfounded. What's going on here? Excuse me, are you from France, too?

Woman: Paris. But I've lived in New York for four years now.

Nicole: Wait a minute. You're from New York?

Mimi: Yes. But we have all worked for Eve, for Victoria, Madame Chanel. A lot of very good coteries, no?

Nicole: Well, yes, Victoria, Coco Chanel. I mean, sure. But then, what are you doing in Bay City?

Mimi: You requested we come, no?

Nicole: I did? We did?

Cass: Ahem. You see, I figured, what's a few airline tickets and some good salaries --

Nicole: But, Cass, how in the world --

Cass: Against six dresses for the Baroness von Corber. Not to mention, all of the orders that are going to be pouring in when her friends ask her where she got them.

Nicole: How did you find these women?

Cass: I picked up the phone, made a few calls.

Nicole: Well, that's fantastic!

Cass: I let my fingers do the walking, you know.

Nicole: You're fantastic! Just think, maybe we'll make it now.

Cass: What's this "maybe" stuff? We're going to make it.

Nicole: Right. Right. The Cassabaldis. Gorgeous, gorgeous, talented, beautiful women -- I love you!

Mimi: Oh, Madame.

Nicole: And I love you. Oh, I love you. I love you. Thank you! Thank you all for coming. This is terrific. It's wonderful. I just never realized this was all possible. Just think, Cass -- we're going to do it now!

Cass: You know, that's one thing I've always -- I never was quite able to understand. Whenever you're happy, you never showed any outward sign of emotion.

Nicole: Oh, shut up and kiss me.

Woman: Ah.


Mimi: Amour.

Cass: Thank you, thank you.

Tempus fugit all over the place, ladies. Don't forget what Einstein said -- "time is money." Come on, move.

Au travail, au travail.

Sam: Hey, Mac. Glad to see you.

Mac: Thanks for having us over.

Sam: Yeah, thanks for coming over.

Rachel: Where should I put this?

Sam: Oh, anywhere.

Ada: See, I told you we weren't too early.

Sam: This is great. Look at all we're getting here.

Adam: Stack them up.

Sam: Thanks a lot.

Adam: You got it.

Rachel: Oh, Sam, a painting.

Sam: I should cover this up.

Rachel: No, no, wait a minute, wait a minute. Let me peek at it. The color is striking.

Sam: Yeah?

Rachel: Yeah.

Julie Ann: So welcome back. Tell me everything.

Amanda: I'll tell you everything later, I promise.

Julie Ann: Ok.

Amanda: Everybody, if you want drinks, they're up here on the counter.

Vicky: And food is on the table. Oh, Matthew, can you change the tape?

Ada: Here he is!

Matthew: Oh -- grandma.

Mac: We didn't know where you were.

Matthew: Sorry, I was going to leave a note, but I forgot.

Mac: Your mother was worried. She didn't know whether to wait for you or not to wait for you. Hilda saw you leave earlier, but nobody knew where you went.

Ada: Well, he's here now, and it all turned out ok.

Mac: Hmm.

Ada: You're getting very forgetful in your old age, you know that?

Mac: Sorry.

Ada: No problem. Forgetful, but adorable.

Rachel: I like the texture a lot.

Sam: Well, I'm not sure the feathering works for me.

Rachel: Well, it's up to you, of course, but it works for me.

Sam: Thank you. Really.

Rachel: You're welcome. Really.

Mac: Your mother said she'd join us here. She left quite a while ago.

Rachel: Oh, well, she's probably shopping. The shops are pretty crowded now.

Sam: Right.

Matthew: Your mom is really a blast.

Sam: A blast?

Matthew: Yeah, she's -- she's always doing something wild, you know?

Sam: Yeah, well, there's always something with my mom.

[Knock on door]

Woman: Amanda? Ama--

Amanda: Dora!

Sam: Dorie.

Amanda: Hi, come on in. We're just having a present-opening party.

Dorie: Oh, no, I just wanted to stop and tell you something. Matthew, hi!

Matthew: Hi.

Dorie: Well, don't you look terrific. So spiffy.

Matthew: Thanks.

Rachel: Honey, how do you know this lady?

Matthew: Uh --

Rachel: What's wrong?

Matthew: What do you mean?

Rachel: All I asked is how you know this lady.

Amanda: Everybody, I'd like you to meet my neighbor. This is Dorie.

Mac: Hi, Dorie. Welcome.

Dorie: Hi.

Sam: Come on in. Have something to eat.

Dorie: No, really, I just came by to tell you that I'm leaving some things.

Amanda: Wait a minute, you mean you're moving now?

Dorie: Yeah. I'll be gone by in the morning. Anyway, there's a bed and some kitchen stuff, and you're welcome to it.

Amanda: Oh, thanks.

Dorie: With this rent increase, I can barely afford to move. Well, I didn't mean to stop the party. I'll talk to you soon.

Amanda: Ok.

Dorie: Nice to see you again, Matthew.

Matthew: Yeah. So long.

Rachel: Well, she acted as though you were friends. How did you meet her?

Matthew: Mom --

Amanda: Actually, he met her this afternoon, earlier.

Matthew: Yeah, yeah.

Amanda: Matthew, why don't you go and check, make sure we're doing ok as far as ginger ale goes.

Matthew: Sure.

Amanda: I'm really nervous about this party. How's it going?

Rachel: Fine.

Mac: But the rent increase must make everything much more difficult.

Sam: Yeah. Look, I appreciate the offer, but Amanda and I will do just fine, thank you.

Mac: All right. You just remember, we're always ready to help if you need it.

Sam: Thanks, but you've helped more than enough, letting my Mom stay at your place --

Mac: Oh, we enjoyed having her.

[Knock on door]

Jamie: Hi.

Amanda: Hi!

Sam: Jamie, Lisa.

Amanda: Come on in. We're just getting started.

Jamie: We stopped by uncle Jason's on the way here.

Ada: How is he?

Jamie: He's fine. It's the virus.

Ada: I'm sorry I sent you all the way out there.

Jamie: No, you can never be too careful.

Lisa: No, you never can be too careful.

Nicole: You're so terrific! What a great move!

Cass: I figured, why not? I mean, how is the baroness going to find out that we almost didn't make it?

Nicole: Right, and now we will. I'm so lucky to have you.

Cass: Well, don't forget that, especially when you find out how much the seamstresses are costing us, ok?

Nicole: Oh, yeah, but it'll be worth it. The baroness is worth $2 million in publicity at least.

Cass: And that's just in Europe.

Nicole: Right. What?

Cass: You have such a beautiful smile.

Nicole: You have such a beautiful way of making me smile.

Cass: Let's do something special.

Nicole: Hmm. What did you have in mind?

Cass: We can do that after, but I was thinking maybe, you know, a gourmet dinner or something. They don't need us around here, so what do you say?

Nicole: But now, remember, just not too much money.

Cass: I know this little place where the lights are low, the food is exquisite, and the prices are cheap.

Nicole: Oh, yeah? Where?

Cass: Just come with me.

Nicole: Cass, where?

Cass: Just come with me.

Nicole: Just tell me where. You never tell me.

Cass: You'll see. Come on.

Mary: Well, it's a job where I can really help people. I guess that's why I want it.

Jason: I know what it's like to really want something, like I want my brother's company right back where it was before.

Mary: Well, sure.

Jason: To get what you really want in life, that's where it's at.

Mary: I suppose it's always good to go after what you want, but --

Jason: But what?

Mary: Eat your soup.

Jason: It's good.

Mary: Yeah, just like it says on the can.

Jason: Why don't you have a bowl with me?

Mary: Because I have to go and you need to get some rest.

Jason: Mary, I don't think I got that fever anymore. What do you think?

Mary: I -- I think it feels pretty normal. But I think probably you do need to get some rest. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Jason: Airline tickets? Where are you headed?

Sam: All right!

Ada: Wonderful!

Amanda: Great.

Sam: More?

Julie Ann: Wait, wait, wait. Slow down, slow down. I've got to keep this all straight.

Ada: When Amanda was a little girl, she used to tear the paper off so fast, it was embarrassing.


[knock on door]

Matthew: I got it.

Ada: It's true, though.

Matthew: Hey!

Loretta: Well, hello there, Matt.

Matthew: Hey, grandma -- Loretta.

Loretta: That a boy.

Mac: We were beginning to wonder about you.

Loretta: Oh, I'm sorry. I should have called. Hi, everyone.

All: Hi!

Sam: Hi, Mom. How you doing?

Loretta: I hope I'm not too late. I had a terrible time at the hairdresser's.

Sam: No, you're not late. What's that?

Loretta: Well, what does it look like? This is a present-opening party, isn't it?

Sam: Yeah.

Loretta: The maid told me that Mac had left this in his study.

Mac: Oh, thank you, Loretta. Mark Phillips, in our art department, asked me to give this to you and Amanda.

Sam: Yeah, right. Mark. Thanks a lot.

Jamie: Loretta, may I get you something to eat or drink, or both?

Loretta: Well, whatever everybody else is having. Anything at all.

Vicky: Hey, Jamie, I could help you out with the drinks.

Lisa: Oh, that's ok, Jamie. Why don't you relax? Vicky and I will take care of it.

Vicky: Even better.

Lisa: So, how's your mother, Vicky?

Vicky: Fine, I guess.

Lisa: You guess?

Vicky: Well, my father and mother have gone through a lot, you know.

Lisa: Then maybe you should be home with them instead of at a party.

Vicky: Well, actually, I thought it would be nice to give them some time alone, you know?

Lisa: Well, that's very thoughtful of you.

Vicky: Yes. Well, thank you.

Lisa: Couples need space. You should remember that.

Vicky: Oh, I will. Thank you. You can always count on me. Lisa, are you ok?

Lisa: What?

Vicky: Are you ok?

Jamie: Hey, did you forget about Loretta? Come on.

Vicky: Oh, no. I've got her drink right here.

Jamie: They're opening more presents.

Vicky: Yeah.

Jason: Where are you headed?

Mary: Vince and I are going on a trip.

Jason: Oh.

Mary: To see M.J.

Jason: M.J., Huh? Minnesota?

Mary: Yeah, Minneapolis.

Jason: Nice town.

Mary: I guess so.

Jason: Are you going to stay with M.J.? What?

Mary: Um --

Jason: She has an extra bedroom?

Mary: Well, I don't even know if I can go. You know, if this job happens --

Jason: Right.

Mary: I'd love to see her. It's been a long time.

Jason: I'd sure like to meet her myself.

Mary: I'm sure you'd like her.

Jason: Why don't you tell me about her. Why do I frighten you, Mary?

Mary: Get some rest. Good night.

Jason: Thanks for helping.

Mary: Mm-hmm.

Jason: You don't want to really go, anyway, do you?

Cass: See? Everything we need for a romantic gourmet dinner, here at Chez Mary. Come on.

Nicole: What? Dancing? Oh, it's so nice to forget about all our problems for a while.

Cass: I keep telling you we're going to succeed.

Nicole: You know, I couldn't have asked for anybody nicer, more supportive, caring, and loving.

Cass: Well, thank you very much. That's the way it's supposed to be, isn't it? I think the island did it. We know that it's just us, and we're making it work.

Charlie: Am I supposed to tell you if you get a phone call?

Nicole: No.

Cass: Yes.

Nicole: Yes.

Charlie: Well, this woman with a French accent called. She said you got big problems.

Nicole: What?

Cass: Let's go.

Nicole: Oh, great. That's just what we need.

Cass: Don't talk. No time to talk. Let's just go. Come on. Wait a second. Sorry, Charlie.

Jamie: It's great to see Amanda so happy like that. I was thinking tonight about all the time she's been unhappy, and that maybe things wouldn't work out with her and Sam. But look at them tonight. Sam's really trying with the family. You know, earlier tonight, it felt kind of funny over at the farm with Jason. I don't know, it's that big old house, you know? Him living all by himself. Sometimes I feel sorry for him. Lisa?

Lisa: What?

Jamie: You're awfully quiet tonight. Something wrong? Well, what is it? Come on, Lisa, what -- is it something to do with Vicky?

Lisa: No. No, it's not Vicky.

Jamie: Hmm.

Lisa: I'm sorry.

Jamie: Are you ok?

Lisa: It's just been a weird night.

Jamie: Why?

Lisa: It started out at the farmhouse, I guess.

Jamie: You know, he seemed kind of strange to me tonight, too. What do you think of him?

Lisa: I hardly know him.

Jamie: Well, you know him about as well as I do.

Lisa: I don't know. You know, there's -- there's something about the way he looks at Mary.

Jamie: Meaning --

Lisa: I think he's interested in her, and his best friend is Vince.

Jamie: Vince and Mary are divorced.

Lisa: I know, but still, he's after her, and Vince is his best friend. He's after the woman he loves.

Jamie: You know, I think maybe you're just a little overly sensitive about it.

Lisa: I don't know, but I don't trust him.

Ada: You believe this? They ordered a whole dinner, paid for it, and then ran out.

Mary: Who?

Ada: Cass and Nicole. Maybe they had a problem back at the salon. You think I ought to call Nicole? Mary?

[Ada whistles]

Mary: I'm sorry. Cass and Nicole -- what?

Ada: Oh, well. They'll work it out. Did you tell Vince?

Mary: Tell him what?

Ada: About your job. You were all excited about it, and then you went off with Jason.

Mary: Oh, no. I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to tell him.

Ada: Did you just get back from Jason's?

Mary: Yeah. I made him some soup.

Ada: I don't know why you bother with that guy.

Mary: Because he helped me get my memory back.

Ada: You did that by yourself. What he did was almost get you killed.

Mary: Ada, that wasn't his fault. All he was trying to do --

Ada: Ok, ok. I just don't know why you do things for a guy like that.

Mary: Like what?

Ada: Dangerous.

Mary: Oh, he's not so dangerous. Do you think he's dangerous? Ada, don't look at me like that.

Ada: What am I looking like?

Mary: You're still doing it. And I don't do things for him. I don't even like him.

Ada: Uh-huh.

Rachel: Now, remember, you don't have to keep all the toasters.

Julie Ann: That's right. You can give one to everyone in the bridal party.

Amanda: Great idea. Bye-bye.

Julie Ann: Bye.

Amanda: See you soon, ok?

Julie Ann: Yeah, thanks.

Amanda: It's been such a great night.

Mac: Sam was talking to me about the rent increase.

Amanda: Oh. Oh, look, don't worry about that, Dad. Really, we'll be fine.

Mac: I just want you to know that we are here to help if you ever need it.

Rachel: I think they can handle it, Mac.

Mac: Doesn't that noise bother you?

Amanda: No.

Rachel: They've gotten used to it. They don't even hear it, probably.

Mac: Really?

Loretta: I've had a wonderful time.

Sam: Good, I'm glad.

Loretta: I'm so glad to see you and Amanda doing so well. And I'm going to see you tomorrow at the charity party, aren't I?

Sam: Uh --

Amanda: Oh, yeah. You bet.

Rachel: Where is Matthew? Matthew!

Matthew: Right here, Mom.

Rachel: You know, every time you turn around, he's left.

Vicky: So, anyway, you've got to come to this Easter party because it's going to be a blast, ok?

Matthew: You're not putting me on, are you?

Vicky: Of course not. Thank you.

Matthew: Well --

Mac: Come on, Matthew. Let's hit it.

Matthew: Ok, ok!

Sam: Thanks for coming.

Matthew: See you later, sis.

Amanda: See you.

Matthew: Thank you for covering for me.

Amanda: I don't like covering for you.

Matthew: Ok, ok. Sam, take it easy.

Sam: Take it easy, man.

Vicky: Hey, guys. Thank you.

Sam: Thank you.

Vicky: I'll see you later, ok?

Sam: Take it easy.

Amanda: Bye.

Sam: Ugh.

Amanda: Oh. What do you think? Was it a success?

Sam: Hey, I think we are major party giviers -- givers --

Amanda: Absolutely.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Look at all those presents!

Sam: Yeah, half of which we won't be able to use.

Amanda: Oh, are you kidding me? Someday when you're a terribly, terribly famous artist, we're going to use all of these things in our East Hampton home.

Sam: Oh, do you really believe that?

Amanda: That you're going to be a success? Absolutely.

Sam: All right, then I am going to be a success -- for you, because of you.

Amanda: Are you promising me the world, Sam Fowler?

Sam: Yeah, I am. Do you believe me?

Amanda: Yeah. Yeah, I do.

Cass: The baroness was here?

Mimi: Oui. She barged right up the stairs.

Nicole: She canceled. I knew it.

Mimi: No, no, she did not.

Cass: Oh, wait a second. After she barged, what did she say?

Mimi: She said she wants many hats.

Nicole: Hats?

Mimi: One wonderful hat for each girl.

Cass: More money.

Nicole: More work.

Mimi: And then she said she wanted changes on two of the gowns, and then she barged down the stairs again.

Nicole: These are not minor changes. Cass, these could take days!

Cass: Are we going to let this get us down?

Nicole: No.

Cass: The publicity would be priceless.

Nicole: But these women can only work so fast.

Cass: Well, ok. Well, there's always you and me.

Nicole: You?

Cass: Yeah, give me a needle.

Nicole: Are you kidding?

Cass: All right, I'll thread, you sew.

Nicole: You're great.

Cass: Sil vou plait.
