John: "Party, the first part. Party, the second part. Party, the third part." Doesn't seem like much of a party to me.

[Knock on door]

Cheryl: Hi.

John: Hi.

Cheryl: Happy Easter.

John: Wow, don't you look nice.

Cheryl: Thanks. I just came from mass. Can I come in?

John: Sure.

Cheryl: Thanks. Ada baked some fresh Irish soda bread. I didn't think you were having much of a celebration.

John: Well, as a matter of fact, Easter seems to have passed me by again this year.

Cheryl: Well, I didn't. Do you have a knife we can cut this up with, or --

Jason: Happy Easter, John John.

John: Hey, Jase.

Jason: Holy cow. Boy, does she look like a fresh breath of spring.

Cheryl: Why are you all dressed up?

Jason: Oh, hey, I got big plans for the Sabbath day.

John: Ah. My mother always said that you should keep the Sabbath holy.

John: Very good, John. Very good.

John: Well, you just look like you're dressed up to go out looking for a job.

Jason: Why would I do that?

John: I don't know. I mean, especially since Dr. Frame is not about to let you get your mitts on Frame Construction Company.

Jason: O ye of little faith.

John: Well, let me ask you something. Did any of these papers that you filed help at all?

Jason: Don't you worry about Frame Construction. I am on my way this very Easter morn to take care of that.

Mac: I'm telling you, it's the exact sermon we heard last Easter.

Liz: Can't you stop editing even in church?

Mac: How is it?

Loretta: It's wonderful. I must ask Rachel for the recipe.

Mac: Where is Rachel?

Loretta: She's upstairs changing.

Liz: You'd think with all the money they charge, at least they could arrange --

Loretta: Oh, I redid that. I thought it looked more spontaneous.

Liz: That's one way to put it.

Loretta: Well, I always try to avoid stuffiness.

Liz: You succeeded.

Rachel: Oh, there you are. Have you found out if the ice is here yet?

Mac: Wait, wait, wait. Before you start giving me my orders, there's something I have to do.

Rachel: What?

Mac: I have to tell you how lovely you look.

Loretta: You look like Joan Fontaine in "Rebecca."

Rachel: She was a frump in "Rebecca."

Loretta: Oh, well, I must have meant in something else.

Rachel: You like it?

Mac: It makes me believe spring is here.

Amanda: Happy Easter, everybody.

Sam: Happy Easter.

Rachel: Happy Easter.

Amanda: Hi.

Rachel: Oh, aren't you sweet.

Amanda: This is for you.

Rachel: Oh, look!

Mac: Oh, how beautiful, Sam.

Amanda: Well, there are advantages to living with an artist.

Loretta: Oh, it's just delightful, Sam. Where's mine?

Rachel: Eggs.

Mac: Yes, darling, it's an egg.

Rachel: No, the man -- the man that's supposed to hide the eggs. He should have been here by now.

Mac: He was, and now he's out hiding them all over town.

Rachel: Are you sure?

Mac: I'm sure.

Rachel: Did you see him?

Mac: I saw him.

Rachel: Mac --

Mac: No, no, no, no. This is one party where nothing is going to go wrong.

Ada: Why don't you hide one in a case of beer.

Larry: Huh?

Ada: You know, egg in your beer. Little attempt at humor. Forget it. Hi.

Mary: Hi.

Ada: Did Vince get those Easter cakes over to St. Elmo's?

Mary: Yes, he's there now.

Ada: I'm going to go by with the bread after the Easter egg hunt.

Mary: Have fun.

Ada: Are you sure you won't come with me?

Mary: No, no, I can't. I promised Vince I'd meet him at St. Elmo's later.

Ada: I see.

Mary: The Sunday School kids are putting on a pageant.

Ada: Oh. Well, if you change your mind.

Mary: Thanks anyway.

Ada: Listen, Jamie's going to come pick me up any minute now. I have to go pick up an Easter plant for Rachel. Would you tell him I'll be right down?

Mary: Sure will.

Vicky: Hey, Larry.

Larry: Hi.

Amanda: Hi.

Larry: How did you know where to find me?

Vicky: Oh, I have my resources.

Larry: Why am I not surprised?

Vicky: So, is that Easter egg hunt going the way I wanted it to?

Larry: This ok?

Vicky: As long as it lets a certain person end up at the boat dock, it's just fine.

Larry: That one is for Frame, right?

Vicky: Right, Jamie Frame.

Larry: And this one --

Vicky: This one is for Lisa.

Vicky: This is great. Lisa's going to be traipsing from one end of the city to the other.

Larry: Well, that's what you wanted, right?

Vicky: Oh, it's exactly what I wanted, yeah.

Larry: I figure she ought to put 400, maybe 500 miles on her car.

Vicky: Oh.

Larry: Now all I got to do is make sure they get the right maps.

Vicky: Oh, don't worry about that. You're going to have some help.

Larry: From you?

Vicky: I told you I had my resources. Get out of here. I don't want them to see us together.

Jamie: Why don't you wait here while I get grandma.

Lisa: Ok, fine.

Vicky: Hi, Lisa.

Lisa: Hi, Vicky. What are you doing here? As if I didn't know.

Vicky: Oh, I just came to get a quick cup of coffee this morning.

Lisa: The place is closed.

Vicky: Oh, but you never know until you try, right?

Lisa: So, what did the Easter bunny bring you?

Vicky: Nothing yet.

Lisa: Too bad.

Vicky: But I think my Easter bunny is going to come later on this afternoon. See you around.

John: Give me a hand over here, will you?

Cheryl: Sure. What do you need me to do?

John: I want you to hold this.

Cheryl: Ok.

John: And this. You're wondering why we have to do this.

Cheryl: Yeah, I was wondering.

John: Because I took all the other plugs out.

Cheryl: Why?

John: Just because I've got to tear up these walls, so this is the only power source I have left.

Cheryl: Ok. Ta-da.

John: Ta-da.

Cheryl: Want that?

John: Yeah.

Cheryl: There you go.

John: Just throw it right over there.

Cheryl: Ok.

John: Let's set the table.

Cheryl: Ok, sure.

Cheryl: John?

John: Huh?

Cheryl: The fork goes on that side. See, it's over here like this.

[John whistles]

Cheryl: Oh!

[Cheryl laughs]

Cheryl: Ok. What else?

John: What is this? This is not going to work.

Cheryl: All right. Then you do it. Go ahead, if you think you can do it better.

John: I can do it better.

Cheryl: Come on.

Cheryl: It's going to be too thick. I told you so.

John: Trust me.

Cheryl: I'll be right back, ok?

John: Where you going?

Cheryl: I'll be back.

John: What are you doing?

Cheryl: Nothing, nothing.

Cheryl: Ta-da.

John: Nice.

Cheryl: You like? Put them in here.

John: I like it a lot.

Cheryl: Yeah. Ta-da.

Cheryl: What are you doing?

John: Unplug it, unplug it. Quick, quick!

Cheryl: Be careful. Don't burn yourself.

John: Just don't laugh, all right?

Cheryl: I'm not laughing. Just don't burn yourself.

John: I guess I cut these a little too thick, didn't I?

Cheryl: Yeah, well I'm not the one who wanted them toasted. Actually, you know, looking at them, they look -- they look delicious. I can see why you wanted to toast them, John.

John: Oh, be quiet, will you?

Cheryl: Sorry.

John: Well, don't just stand there. Come on, let's cut some more. Cut some thinner slices this time.

Cheryl: Yes, sir.

John: All right. That's more like it.

Cheryl: Ok. Thin slices, huh? What's going on with Frame Construction, anyway? If you don't mind me asking.

John: Well, Jason wants to start a construction company, and he wants to use the Frame name. Rachel doesn't want him to.

Cheryl: Why not?

John: I don't think she trusts him.

Cheryl: Do you?

John: No, but I can handle it.

Cheryl: Hey, how are these? Are these thin enough for you?

John: Yeah, that looks good.

Cheryl: Ok, good. What about Jamie? What is Jamie's involvement with this whole thing?

John: Rachel made him the legal owner of the company, so he's the one that's going to have to deal with Jason, although I don't think that he's too excited about giving Jason the Frame Construction name, either.

Cheryl: Let me guess -- he doesn't trust him, either.

John: On a personal level, they seem to get along fine. But when it comes to his father's construction company, it's a whole other matter.

Cheryl: Doesn't he know that you make it work?

John: The construction company?

Cheryl: Yeah.

John: Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Cheryl: Anytime. John, look!

John: Unplug it!

Cheryl: John!

John: Grab it! Oh, it's the raisins. It's those darn raisins.

Cheryl: Oh, yeah. First it's the slices, then it's the raisins. Why don't you just admit Irish soda bread was not meant to be toasted.

John: Well, maybe you're right.

Cheryl: I'm Irish. I know these things.

John: Well, you may be Irish, but I hope you're not in a hurry because I think this breakfast is going to take an awful lot longer than it's supposed to.

Cheryl: Actually, I was supposed to go to the Corys' lawn party.

John: Sounds very posh.

Cheryl: Yeah, well, I don't know about that.

John: Well, if I were you, I'd seriously think about going. It looks like all you're going to get here is burnt toast.

Cheryl: I don't mind.

John: Well, the Corys probably have better food there. No, not probably -- undoubtedly, they have better food.

Cheryl: I don't care. I think I'd rather be here with you.

Amanda: I told you you should have made your mother an egg.

Sam: I didn't have time. Look, I'm going to go help your dad with the ice, ok?

Amanda: Ok. Tell my mom I'll be there in a minute.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: That's really nice.

Loretta: I just can't keep my hands off flowers. You know, the duchess of York used to always invite me early so I could put the finishing touches on her arrangements.

Amanda: Oh, how exciting.

Loretta: In those days, actresses, you know, weren't always included in the social set, but Yorkie never paid attention to convention.

Amanda: You know, I just wanted to tell you I really had to nag Sam to make that egg for my mother. I guess I should have nagged him to make two.

Loretta: I wish I had some gladiola. This thing could really use some drama.

Amanda: I am sorry.

Loretta: The flower arrangements in the dining room looked as though they could use a little help.

Amanda: She's upset. I know she is.

Liz: Does she have to take it out on the flowers?

Rachel: Amanda, sweetie, we have guests.

Amanda: Hi.

Julie Ann: Hi. Happy Easter.

Amanda: Happy Easter.

Zack: Happy Easter to you, too.

Rachel: Where's Felicia? I thought she was coming with you.

Julie Ann: Oh, she did, but she had trouble negotiating with her hat.

Zack: You know, there's something intimidating about Felicia when she's choosing a special hat. I mean, it's not exactly humdrum.

Amanda: What's it look like?

Julie Ann: Well, she wouldn't let us see it. It's still in the box.

Zack: Well, she didn't laugh when I offered to get a forklift.

Rachel: Oh, no!

Zack: Yes.

Julie Ann: Come on in, Felicia.

Felicia: Happy Easter, everybody.

Amanda: Felicia. Beautiful morning, isn't it?

Rachel: I wonder if I have enough petits fours.

Felicia: You creeps!

Rachel: It's wonderful!

Amanda: It looks fabulous.

Felicia: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you.

Loretta: Rachel, the flower arrangement in the hallway really needs --

Liz: I fixed the flowers on the patio, but that woman has to stop --

Rachel: Liz.

[Doorbell rings]

Rachel: I'll get it.

Loretta: You know, when I played Covent Garden, I had a hat just like that.

Felicia: Did you?

Rachel: Hi, everybody. Go right in. What are you doing here?

Jason: And a happy Easter to you, too, Rachel.

Rachel: I asked you a question, Jason. What are you doing here?

Jason: I want to talk to you about Frame Construction.

Rachel: This is neither the time nor the place, Jason.

Jason: I didn't think you were the type who would dump her problems into her son's lap.

Rachel: I didn't do that.

Jason: Oh, no? You give Jamie the company so he could make a decision, then you don't let him do it.

Rachel: Jason, there is a proper forum for this kind of insinuation.

Jason: It's not an insinuation. It's a flat-out statement. You give him the responsibility and don't allow him to exercise it.

Rachel: I told Jamie how I feel about it. What he does is up to him.

Jason: Right.

Rachel: You don't know Jamie. He'll make his own decision in his own way.

Jason: Then why do you have to keep whispering in his ear?

Rachel: Jason, obviously you've got a major problem with the idea that Jamie may not want you to be involved in Frame Construction. There's nothing I can do about that. So would you please leave?

Jason: No. You realize, I will deal with Jamie, but I will not deal with Jamie and his coach.

Rachel: You're not calling the shots here, Jason. I want Jamie to have this company, and I want him to be able to give it to his children. You can't intimidate me into changing my opinion about that.

Jason: Listen to me, Mrs. Cory --

Jamie: No, no, no, you listen. If you want to discuss this matter, you'll talk to me and you'll leave my mother out of it. Do you understand?

John: This bread is really good. Thank you.

Cheryl: Ada makes tons of it. We all pitch in and help.

John: Sounds like fun.

Cheryl: Oh, actually, it is. And then we wrap it up and we give it to our best friends.

John: Well, thank you again.

Cheryl: I brought some over to Scott. He really didn't feel like doing anything for Easter.

John: Because of Dawn?

Cheryl: Yeah. All her stuff is still in his apartment. But he's doing ok. He -- he's going to have some of her songs published so people don't forget about her.

John: So that he won't forget. That's the main thing.

Cheryl: Yeah. I know exactly how he feels. When I -- when I lost my sister, I think it was the most painful thing I have ever felt.

John: But you got through the pain.

Cheryl: Yeah, part of it.

John: You know, it's funny. Life has a way of pushing you forward whether you want to go there or not.

Cheryl: It's not easy, though. Sometimes I wonder if it would be better not to care about anybody. You'd never have to worry about losing them.

John: I used to think that way when I was in Nam. You know, sometimes, you can actually fool yourself into believing that it doesn't matter, but it does. It always does.

Cheryl: How do you stop feeling it, huh? How do you stop feeling the pain?

John: You don't. You allow yourself to feel as bad as you feel. And don't ever worry about boring somebody by talking about it too much. Matter of fact, if you ever need anybody to talk to, come find me. I've got great ears.

Cheryl: Yeah, I've noticed. Sure you don't mind?

John: No. Of course not.

Cheryl: It means a lot that I have you. I mean, as a friend.

John: Yeah. I know what you mean.

Cheryl: I think things are finally looking up.

John: Good.

Cheryl: My parents are going to see M.J. together. Did I tell you that?

John: That sounds like progress, doesn't it?

Cheryl: Yeah, definitely. And Cass and Nicole are making a go of the salon.

John: Yeah, the salon, among other things. Oh, here we go again.

Cheryl: Oh --

John: Ow!

Cheryl: John, are you ok?

John: That's hot. Yeah, I just don't think that this toast is destined to be, that's all.

Cheryl: That's ok.

Mary: Cheryl?

Cheryl: Mom, what are you doing here?

Liz: I'm sorry, but I just don't think that that man should be sitting in your living room talking to Jamie.

Rachel: Well, for once, I agree with you, Liz.

Liz: Well, this is a party, and Jamie shouldn't have to deal with it.

Ada: Jamie can handle it.

Rachel: It's not a question of handling it. It's the fact that Jason's come all the way out here to talk about business on Easter Sunday.

Liz: I think Mac should just escort him out.

Rachel: Where is Mac?

Mac: Mac is right here, and look who's here with him.

Rachel: Hi, Larry.

Mac: Larry tells me the eggs are successfully hidden and the games can start.

Ada: I can hardly wait.

Larry: She was there when I hid the eggs at Mary's Place.

Mac: Oh, keep your eye on her. She'll go to any lengths for a hard-boiled egg.

Ada: I will.

Larry: I just need a couple minutes. Why don't you get everyone together.

Mac: I'll do that. Ok, everyone, if you'll come out on the patio, we're ready to start. The clearance on these doors is only four feet, Felicia. Can you make it?

Jason: Jamie, just give me a minute.

Jamie: Look, look, look -- I don't mean to be hard about this, ok? But Frame Construction is a very large responsibility for me, and I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing.

Jason: I'm willing to deal, and there's something for you.

Jamie: What I need is time.

Jason: All right. Sorry if I intruded. But I tell you, I'm not like you in all ways. I don't have a lot of time to wait around.

Mac: So the clues on one egg will lead to the next egg. Now, the clues are in the form of riddles.

Felicia: They have riddles on eggs?

Mac: The better you are at riddles, the more eggs you get. And the one with the most eggs gets a grand prize.


Jamie: Question, question, question.

Mac: What, Jamie?

Jamie: Is it fair to allow clairvoyants to compete?

Lisa: Stop. I'm not clairvoyant. Mac, what was that prize, again?

Jamie: See?

Mac: I'm going to turn the floor over to Rachel, who will explain why we are doing this.

Rachel: This year, Cory Publishing is donating $200 for every egg found, in the memory of Dawn Rollo for AIDS research. Other institutions and individuals are going to be matching our donations, so find a lot of eggs.

Mac: Now, remember, the hunt starts now and stops at 4:00 sharp. And we have a couple of distinguished visitors with us.

Loretta: And I thought I'd played a couple weird gigs.

Mac: They will give you your maps that will start you on your way, and may the best bunny win.

Bunny: Oh, I have your map right here.

Jamie: I didn't know they were assigned.

Bunny: Oh, they've all been carefully thought out.

Lisa: Well, thanks. Wish me luck.

Jamie: Yeah.

Vicky: I'll wish you luck. Just not the kind of luck you want.

Lisa: This kind of worries me, a doctor who can't tell north from south.

Jamie: Yeah, well, we don't have to. We have technical terms like "up" and "down."

Lisa: You're going to need a lot of help.

Jamie: Well, that's why --

Vicky: You can't share each other's maps.

Jamie: We can't?

Vicky: No, it's against the rules.

Lisa: What rules?

Vicky: You have to find the eggs all by yourself.

Lisa: Well, this is a charity Easter egg hunt, not the Olympics, so we're going to work together.

Vicky: Oh, but --

Jamie: Don't be such a rigid rabbit. Let's go.

Vicky: Jamie and Lisa are looking at their maps together. You've got to stop it.

Larry: How?

Vicky: I don't know. Why don't you go down to the docks and send Lisa on her own little wild-goose chase, ok, away from all the boats.

Larry: And away from Jamie.

Vicky: Oh, you're catching on fast. Yes. Bye.

Matthew: Hi. Sorry. Did I scare you?

Vicky: Why aren't you out looking for eggs, huh?

Matthew: Well, I played miniature golf yesterday, and I don't want to overdose on fun.

Vicky: I see.

Matthew: Can I ask you a question?

Vicky: Sure.

Matthew: Why are you dressed up like a rabbit?

Vicky: For charity, of course.

Matthew: You ever think about giving them the money and maintaining your dignity?

Vicky: Very funny.

Matthew: Maybe I'll dress up like a chicken to promote world peace.

Vicky: Oh, cute, Matthew. Oh, wait. You know the apartment that's opening up next to Sam and Amanda's? Have they said anything else about it opening up?

Matthew: No.

Vicky: Huh. I'll have to go and check that out.

Matthew: It's really neat. It's different from Sam's, but it's not so much like a loft.

Vicky: Oh, it's not?

Matthew: No, and the shower is not as good.

Liz: How do you know so much about it, Matthew?

Matthew: Um -- Amanda said so. Well, off to find those eggs, you know.

Vicky: Good luck.

Liz: Well, you've finally found a career suited to your talent.

Vicky: It was nice talking to you, too.

Liz: Watch out for Mr. MacGregor.

Vicky: Cute.

Rachel: Hi. How are you all doing? Doing all right? I think it's going very well, Mac.

Mac: Very. Liz, why aren't you out solving riddles?

Liz: I have one for you. How long did Matthew say he was at Sam and Amanda's?

Sam: Uh-uh, this can't be it. No. This is too easy.

Amanda: Come on, did you talk to the guy in the bunny suit?

Sam: Excuse me -- rule number one, never talk to guys who wear bunny suits.

Amanda: Anyway, I think he made up a lot of these clues. It could be this easy.

Charlene: Hi, guys. Can I get you something?

Sam: Yeah, a couple coffees.

Amanda: Glass of milk for me.

Sam: Right. One coffee and one milk. Sorry, I forgot.

Amanda: It's ok. I know, it's the excitement of the hunt.

Sam: Yeah, sure.

Amanda: Hey, Sam --

Sam: Hmm?

Amanda: When we go back, I think you should talk to your mother.

Sam: Look, Amanda, I know you're trying to help, but I don't --

Amanda: Butt out.

Sam: No.

Amanda: What, then?

Sam: It's an Easter egg hunt, so let's hunt Easter eggs, ok?

Amanda: I just wish there was something that I could do.

Sam: Amanda, hunt.

Amanda: Right.

Sam: Amanda, look, I am not worried about my mother right now.

Amanda: You're worried about something.

Sam: No I'm not. Everything's fine.

Amanda: You're a lousy liar. It's about the rent, isn't it?

Sam: Amanda, look, I told you I'd take care of that.

Amanda: I know that you will. But until we figure out what we're going to do, I think my father could really help us out.

Sam: No. No. I appreciate the offer, but I will do this myself.

Amanda: All right. We will do it ourselves.

Sam: Ok. So come on, let's get back to Easter egg hunting.

Amanda: Ok.

Sam: Who knows, maybe we'll find the golden egg.

Mary: I thought you were at St. Elmo's with your dad.

Cheryl: Oh, I went to the 10:00, and then I came here.

Mary: Oh, to see John.

Cheryl: Yeah.

John: She brought me some Irish soda bread. It's real good. Would you like some? Or coffee or something?

Mary: No, thank you. No, thanks.

Cheryl: You're here to see Jason?

Mary: No. No, I -- I came here to see if my airline tickets were here.

Cheryl: Why would your airline tickets be here?

Mary: Well, because I know I had them with me when I brought Jason home the other night.

Cheryl: What were you doing bringing Jason home?

Mary: He was sick, and he almost fainted twice at the restaurant.

Cheryl: He was perfectly fine this morning.

Mary: I don't want to argue about this, Cheryl. I just came here to see if my tickets were here by any chance. Yes, they are.

John: You sure you don't want a cup of coffee or something?

Mary: No, thank you.

Cheryl: Well, Mom, if the tickets were what you came here for --

John: Listen, I've been doing some really good work on this barn out here. It's kind of fancy. Would you like to see it?

Mary: Not really, John.

John: We could all take a walk out there and --

Mary: I'll walk out with you, but I can't. I promised Vince -- I'm on my way to meet him at St. Elmo's.

Cheryl: Oh, really? Ok. Well, let's go.

Jason: Hi.

I sure didn't expect to find you here.

Mary: Well, you certainly wouldn't have if I hadn't left my tickets here.

Jason: Oh, yeah, I was going to call you about that.

Mary: Thanks a lot. You don't have to now.

Cheryl: She is on her way to meet my father at St. Elmo's.

Jason: Is that right?

Cheryl: Yeah, mm-hmm.

Jason: Mary --

Cheryl: Yes. And they are going to meet my sister together. That's what the airline tickets are for. Come on, Mom.

Jason: Mary, if you've got a minute, I'd really like to talk to you about something.

Mary: Well, why don't you guys go look at the barn. It's ok. I'll just talk to him. It's ok.

Jason: Sit down, please.

Mary: No, I don't have that much time.

Jason: Just once today I would like somebody to do what I ask.

Mary: What's the matter?

Jason: Sit down, and I'll tell you about it. Look, I know you're friends with the Corys.

Mary: Yes, I am.

Jason: Well, you may have to choose sides real soon.

Mary: Why?

Jason: I'm afraid there's going to be a big battle coming up.

Mary: Between you and the Corys?

Jason: Yeah, all of them, even Jamie.

Mary: Why?

Jason: Because none of them trusts me.

Mary: And you think they should?

Jason: If I give them my word, yeah.

Mary: I don't believe I'll take sides. I think I'll stay neutral.

Jason: What, but you trust me, don't you?

Mary: Only when you give your word.

Amanda: I've got it.

Sam: What, the last egg?

Amanda: No. A way for us to make the rent money. I'll just ask my father for a raise.

Sam: No.

Amanda: Sam, come on.

Sam: Look, Amanda, it would be like asking for a loan.

Amanda: No, I don't think so.

Sam: Amanda, if your dad decides to give you a raise on your merit, that's fine, but not because I'm having a hard time of it.

Amanda: Sam, come on, this isn't your fault. I don't want you to worry.

Sam: Look, I'm not worried. I have this feeling I'm going to sell a painting real soon, ok?

Amanda: I think you are, too.

Sam: But if I don't, I will do something. I will not have you and the baby pay because I want to be a painter.

Amanda: No, don't even say that.

Sam: Amanda, it's true, ok? I'll get a job, whatever. But you don't have to worry about it.

Amanda: That's what worries me. You're a painter. That is what you are.

Sam: I am also a husband and a father.

Amanda: Sam, look, I'd like to be able to know that I can worry once in a while without you having to feel that you're going to need to give up painting.

Sam: Ok. So, what do you think? Should we get back to more important things?

Amanda: Easter eggs?

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Hmm.

Sam: If that last clue is as dumb as I think it is, the last egg is right up here, and it's -- yeah.

Amanda: Well, ok, so this hasn't exactly been a mental challenge.

Sam: You know, I can't think of anybody who couldn't figure this out.

Lisa: Come on, Jamie, it's this way.

Jamie: Are you sure this is right?

Lisa: Doesn't it seem obvious to you?

Jamie: Oh, honey, I understand body chemistry and the nervous system. This -- this is just --

Lisa: It's ok, honey. It just makes it more fun to do it together.

Vicky: Get rid of her.

Larry: How? She doesn't want to go?

Vicky: Well, think of something.

Larry: That's hard.

Vicky: You're smart, aren't you?

Larry: Not about breaking people up.

Vicky: Well, you're about to get a crash course. Come here.

Jamie: You know, if this takes much longer, we're not going to have much time to find the eggs on your map.

Lisa: Why don't you think of this map as an x-ray, ok? The head is north, the feet are south --

Larry: Excuse me. Are you Lisa Grady?

Lisa: Yeah.

Larry: I suppose I shouldn't tell you this, but you got a special map.

Jamie: What?

Larry: I was told you were very good at this kind of thing.

Jamie: Oh, she's good, all right.

Larry: You see, you have the clue leading to an egg that would get an extra donation from the Love Foundation, so I was hoping that you would work on your own map instead of helping your friend here.

Jamie: What?

Larry: The egg really would bring in a lot of money for charity.

Jamie: Oh. Well, I guess we can't turn that down. Let's go. Come on.

Lisa: Ok.

Larry: I'm sorry, but you really have to go alone. You see, we wouldn't want to risk losing the donation by breaking the rules.

Lisa: You mean, if I cheat on the Easter egg hunt, they won't give the money to charity?

Larry: It's not my rule.

Lisa: All right. All right, all right, all right. Jamie, do you think you can make it back to your parents' house alone?

Jamie: Funny. Funny.

Lisa: I'll see you there.

Jamie: Bye.

Lisa: Let's go. Look at the names of the boats for the last riddle.

Jamie: Boats -- names of boats. Ok, thanks. That's a good idea. Names of boats.

Vicky: Yes. Thanks a bunch, Lisa.

Mary: Well, I really got to get going.

Jason: Sure.

Mary: I promised Vince.

Jason: Hey, I understand. You don't have to say a thing.

Mary: You certainly seem better.

Jason: It was the soup. It was a miraculous cure. Thank you very much. I'll walk you out to the car.

Jason: What?

Mary: About Jamie and how he feels -- don't misunderstand.

Jason: I'm not misunderstanding anything. The kid just doesn't trust me.

Mary: Jamie was raised mostly by Mac and Rachel, who are both very, very upfront, outspoken people.

Jason: I'm not that kind of person.

Mary: You know you're not. Have you told them your plans for Frame Construction?

Jason: They wouldn't believe me.

Mary: That's why they think you've got an angle -- because you won't tell them where you stand.

Jason: Jamie and I were getting along just fine till this happened, and I really thought he understood me.

Mary: You can be very charming.

Jason: Thank you.

Mary: But I don't think Jamie's going to make a business decision based on that.

Jason: What do you suggest, I become Vince McKinnon?

Mary: Oh, Jason, I'm not criticizing you. I'm sure Jamie finds you very mysterious and exciting.

Jason: That's a weird way of putting it.

Mary: It is?

Jason: Yes, maybe you got your people mixed up. Maybe talking about yourself.

Mary: Me?

Jason: Yeah. I mean, isn't that the way you feel?

Mary: No, it certainly is not.

Jason: Oh, Mary, face it. Why don't you just say it? That's what you came back here for.

Liz: I had the distinct impression that Matthew had been at Sam and Amanda's apartment longer than he had said.

Rachel: Wonderful.

Mac: Are you sure?

Rachel: Mac, if he knew about the next-door neighbor's shower, he must have. I mean, that just doesn't come up in casual conversation.

Felicia: Well, you guys, I'm sure that Mitch is probably in a bug-infested jungle and doing a whole lot better than I am.

Mac: Felicia, you've got to get in the spirit of the thing.

Felicia: Oh, come on, Mac. Let me just write you a check. Do I really have to go look for eggs?

Mac: It's not hard.

Felicia: Not hard? I bet nobody finds one. Not one.

Amanda: Hey, can we store these here while we go look for some more?

Rachel: In fact, you can store them right here.

Amanda: Huh?

Rachel: I want to talk to both of you.

Felicia: Well, I think maybe I should go look for some eggs, yes. Liz, you help me. Come on.

Amanda: You know, we'd really like to stay, but we don't want to fall behind.

Rachel: When did Matthew take a shower in your next-door neighbor's shower?

Amanda: Huh?

Rachel: Well, we have Matthew's broken leg excuse, we have his library excuse, we have his excuse for why the whole school was let out a whole day early without telling the parents, and now we have reports that he was showering in your next-door neighbor's shower.

Sam: I think I know where that next batch of eggs are --

Mac: Never mind the eggs. We have to talk.

Amanda: Dad, I'd love to, but it's for charity.

Jamie: Names of boats, huh? Ok, let's see. I guess I'll try that boat right down there.

Jamie: Vicky?

Vicky: Jamie, what are you doing here?

Jamie: Whose boat is this, anyway?

Vicky: Oh, it's a friend of my father's. He said if I fix it up this weekend, then I could take some of those kids from St. Elmo's out next weekend on the lake.

Jamie: Oh, that sounds good.

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: You know, I bet Mac knows this guy, that's why the eggs are here.

Vicky: Oh, yeah? So, Jamie --

Jamie: You know, they've got to be here somewhere.

Vicky: Jamie --

Jamie: Wait, wait, wait, be careful, will you?

Vicky: Why?

Jamie: You could fall off. You know, be careful. Hey. You know, I don't know why they've got to write these stupid clues in riddles, anyway.

Vicky: Oh! Jamie, what happened?

Jamie: I don't know.

Vicky: Oh, go check it out.

Jamie: Come here.

Vicky: Go, go. What is it? What?

Jamie: The door seems to be stuck.

Vicky: Oh, no.

Jamie: I don't believe this. This just can't be true.

Vicky: Oh, fabulous. Now what are we going to do? It's Easter.

Jamie: I know it's Easter.

Vicky: I mean, nobody's out there. Nobody's going to be walking around. We might be in here all night.

Loretta: That's wonderful. You just made $3,200 for charity.

Julie Ann: Great. You know, I have this incredible urge for egg salad.

Zach: Yeah.

Ada: This is the cubs' year. I'm telling you.

Matthew: Grandma, you say that every year.

Ada: This year, I am right.

Rachel: Matthew, your father and I want to talk to you.

Ada: You haven't been home long enough for "your father and I want to talk to you."

Matthew: Maybe we could talk later. Grandma and I have --

Rachel: Now.

Mac: Where were you for the last week while Amanda and Sam were on their honeymoon?

Matthew: School. I told you.

Rachel: Suppose you tell us the truth. You were here last week, weren't you?

Mac: Why weren't you in school?

Mary: You're really impossible.

Jason: Me?

Mary: I am here trying to give you a little understanding, and you turn it into a pass.

Jason: No, I just asked you a simple question.

Mary: I am not interested in you that way.

Jason: All right.

Mary: And I really think you have a lot of nerve for even suggesting it.

Jason: Have it your own way, fine.

Mary: You are so arrogant, I absolutely feel sorry -- arrogant? Arrogant? You're deluded.

Jason: Fine. Then you tell me exactly why you left those airline tickets here.

Mary: I forgot them.

Jason: Mary, airline tickets are very expensive, and you're a lot more careful than that.

Mary: Obviously, I'm not careful enough, am I?

Jason: Well, you're the psychology major. Don't you think you have some subconscious need to come back here?

Mary: Don't you talk to me about my subconscious.

Jason: I'm just trying to get this out in the open.

Mary: Ok, fine. Fine, let's do that, then.

Jason: Ok.

Mary: I think you are arrogant. I think you are devious. I think you're absolutely impossible. And if Jamie doesn't trust you, I don't know that I could blame him. You let go of me. Who do you think you are?

Jason: Someone who is just very tired of you waiting to see the light.
