Felicia: "The curve, the small of her back." Yeah. Maybe I could have her seduce him..

[Knock on door]

Felicia: I like that. Just a minute.. Yeah. Now where, though? It could happen maybe in the bathroom? No, that is poor, Felicia. Hi.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: What are you doing here? I thought you were out scrounging up money for Nicole's business.

Cass: Me scrounge? Please, Felicia. I never, ever scrounge.

Felicia: Does that mean you got it?

Cass: But of course.

Felicia: Oh! Honey, honey. Oh, that's fabulous, really. Where? How? Who?

Cass: Wait, wait a second. One question at a time, please.

Felicia: Well? Come on, tell me. How did you get it?

Cass: Well, I got some money for Nicole --

Felicia: Right.

Cass: And we have plans to receive some more.

Felicia: Cass --

Cass: It's all lined up. You should have seen the expression on Nicole's face when I laid all this dough on her.

Felicia: Uh-huh.

Cass: I mean, she thought she was going to have to take out a loan from Drew, but she doesn't have to do that.

Felicia: So, where did the money come from?

Cass: Oh, what does that matter?

Felicia: Cass, you're not doing one of your old cons again, are you?

Liz: Excuse me. Ok. Loretta?

Loretta: Oh. Hello, Liz. Is Mac in?

Liz: No, he left a few minutes ago for the hospital.

Loretta: Oh.

Liz: Loretta, I'm so sorry about Sam. We're all praying for him.

Loretta: Yes.

Liz: Are you all right, Loretta?

Loretta: What? Oh, I'm sorry. These papers came for Mac at the house. They were special delivery from his New York office. I thought they might be important.

Liz: Oh, surely you can catch up with him at the hospital.

Loretta: No, I -- no, I'm too upset to go there right now. I -- I can't. Those places worry me so.

Liz: Oh, I understand. I tell you what -- I'll ask Julie Ann to run those papers over to Mac at the hospital..

Loretta: Oh, that would be wonderful. Oh, thank you.

Liz: I have another idea. Loretta, why don't you and I just go someplace and try to relax and just talk, huh?

Loretta: Oh, Liz, I -- I know you're not crazy about me.

Liz: Well, I'm not one of your favorite people, either. You look as if you could use a friend right now, even if I'm it.

Loretta: Yes, I -- I could. I think that would be nice. Thank you.

Liz: What?

Loretta: Oh, it's just that there's no one at the Cory house right now. I'm just a little worried about Matthew.

Liz: Oh, Matthew's a big boy. He'll be all right.

Loretta: Yes, he is a big boy. Yes, he'll be fine.

Liz: I'll get my purse.

Loretta: Everything will be fine.

[Monitor beeps]

Amanda: Sam -- Sam, please wake up. I love you. I need you. The baby needs you. Please wake up.

Amanda: Sam? Sam?

Amanda: Sam? Sam! Mom, look, he opened his eyes. Did you see him?

Rachel: I see, I see.

Amanda: Sam? Sam, please! Come on, open your eyes again. Sam? Sam?

Rachel: I'm going to go get Jamie.

Amanda: Sam, you can do it. Come on, can you hear me? Sam. Sam, come on, please.

Please open your eyes. Sam?

Felicia: Cass?

Cass: Felicia, give me a little credit, would you please?

Felicia: Where did the money come from?

Cass: Where did the money come from? It came from a source of mine.

Felicia: A source? Really?

Cass: Yes, a source who prefers to remain anonymous.

Felicia: Mm-hmm.

Cass: Doesn't want his or her name involved. The publicity, you know.

Felicia: Oh, Cass, come on. Publicity? Give me a little credit, will you?

Cass: It's the truth, I swear it is!

[Phone rings]

Felicia: Cass Winthrop, why do you always tell me things --

Cass: You want me to get that for you?

Felicia: No, I don't want you to get it. I'll get it myself. It's my phone. Ugh. Hello?

Cass: "Hello?"

Felicia: Stop that!

John: Felicia, hi, this is John Hudson.

Felicia: Oh, John, hi. What can I do for you?

John: Well, I'm trying to find Cass. He wasn't at the salon.

Felicia: That's because he's standing right here next to me. Just a second, I'll put him on. John Hudson.

Cass: John?

John: Hi, Cass. I'm glad I found you.

Cass: What's up?

John: Well, I just got a call from Jason a little while ago. The poker game has been postponed.

Cass: Postponed? Why?

John: Well, it seems that some of the big-money boys he was trying to line up can't make it.

Cass: Well, that stinks. I was counting on that game.

Felicia: Game? What game?

Cass: Uh -- look, thanks for letting me know, tracking me down. I can't talk right now, but we'll talk about it again later, ok?

John: Sure, yeah, ok.

Cass: I do appreciate you calling, though. Bye.

Felicia: Well?

[Cass whistles]

Felicia: What's this about a game?

Cass: Oh, honey, it's nothing, really. It's just, you know, a friendly little game of poker, that's all.

Felicia: Hey, when it comes to poker, there's nothing friendly for you about it.

Cass: I know what I'm doing.

Felicia: Cass?

Cass: What?

Felicia: I just want you to be careful, all right? You know, Wally is not around to rescue you from yourself anymore.

Cass: I know that. I know that.

[Felicia sighs]

Cass: I'm going to be fine, really. Hey, I'm not the guy you should be worrying about, anyway. Mac's the one with all the troubles right now.

Felicia: You know, I love how you always try and change the subject when you're dealing with me.

Cass: Well, it's the truth.

Felicia: Cass?

Cass: Mac's takeover problems at Cory Publishing are much bigger than any trouble I could get into in a little poker game.

Felicia: I'm not so sure about that.

Cass: The poker game's been called off, anyway.

Felicia: Really?

Cass: Well, postponed.

Felicia: Hmm, postponed, yeah.

Cass: Mm-hmm.

Felicia: You know, I really would like to help Mac out, you know, with this problem he's having. I mean, it's just that I don't know anything about, you know, corporate takeover.

Cass: But I do, right?

Felicia: Well, I mean, you are a lawyer, and Mac did offer you a job just last week.

Cass: Which, if you recall, I turned down -- graciously, but turned down, nonetheless. I have my hands full with Nicole's salon.

Felicia: Well, I just thought since you got this money for Nicole's business that maybe you'd have a little free time on your hands.

Cass: It's not that simple.

Felicia: Oh, no?

Cass: No.

Felicia: Cass, tell me, does Nicole know about this little game you have planned?

Cass: You sleazeball, you wouldn't.

Felicia: I wouldn't?

Cass: Oh. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but this smacks of blackmail.

Felicia: No, no, no. Blackmail, you see, is when you force someone into doing something they don't want to do.

Cass: Oh, yeah. Might be fun. I suppose I could do a little snooping around, you know? Mac's going to need all the help he can get. After all, what are friends for, right?

Felicia: Right.

Cass: Yeah.

Michael: Anybody home?

John: Hey, Mike. Come on in.

Michael: Thanks.

John: What can I do for you?

Michael: What makes you think I need you to do something for me?

John: Your brow is furrowed. It's a dead giveaway you've got something on your mind.

Michael: I got a lot on my mind. I got to go to New York.

John: Oh, yeah?

Michael: Yeah. I'm helping Mac defend himself against a takeover of his company. I have a little experience in this area, and I thought maybe I could give him a hand.

John: Glad you can help him out.

Michael: So am I. Well, I'll just give it my best shot.

John: Well, you always do.

Michael: Thanks. Look, John, I was wondering --

John: Oh, here it comes.

Michael: I was wondering if you could keep an eye on Vicky for me while I'm gone.

John: Keep an eye on Vicky? What do you mean?

Michael: Well, it doesn't seem to be a secret that Victoria has developed a strong attraction for Jamie Frame.

John: Oh. Is everyone picking up on that now?

Michael: I don't know, but I'm her father. It's my job to notice. Lisa's left town on some assignment for Felicia doing research or something.

John: Well, I'll keep an eye on Vicky, although I think she's old enough to take care of herself.

Michael: That's exactly what worries me.

John: Well, listen, I mean, Victoria's not going to pull the wool over Jamie's eyes, unless, of course, he wants her to.

Michael: John, that's not the point. Victoria is very immature, and with her chasing Jamie, trying to steal him away from Lisa, somebody is bound to get hurt, and I'm just afraid that person is going to be Victoria. Now would you please help me?

John: Sure, yeah, ok.

Michael: Thanks. I appreciate it. Look, I got to go.

John: Mike?

Michael: Yeah?

John: Listen, about this best man business.

Michael: What about it?

John: Well, it's just that I'm not so sure it's a real good idea.

Michael: Wait a minute, I thought we got this all straightened out.

John: Well, we did. It's just that there are some feelings that still make things kind of awkward. I mean, this is your wedding to Donna. And in light of everything that's happened in the past, me being your best man is bound to make things awkward for everyone, including you. So I think it would be best if I just bow out.

Michael: Well, I don't really know what to say, John.

John: You can say that you understand, that you'll find someone else.

Michael: I tell you what, why don't we talk about this when I get back, all right?

John: Mike, I'm not going to change my mind.

Michael: Let's just talk about this when I get back, ok?

Jamie: Give him his medicine stat.

Nurse: 10 milligrams I.V. Push stat.

Jamie: You got it.

Rachel: Well, Jamie, what's going on? Do you think he's coming out of it?

[Jamie sighs]

Jamie: Mom, his opening his eyes doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Rachel: What do you mean it doesn't mean anything? He looked right at Amanda.

Jamie: Well, maybe. It could have just been a reflex action.

Rachel: What do you mean, maybe?

Jamie: Mom, don't get your hopes up too high, ok? The latest test results I saw aren't that encouraging.

Rachel: Oh, no.

Jamie: I won't know until I see the latest test results.

Rachel: Oh, hi, dear.

Mac: I got here as soon as I could. Everything is chaotic at "Brava."

Rachel: I'm glad you got here.

Mac: How is Sam?

Jamie: Things don't look too good at the moment.

Rachel: He opened his eyes.

Mac: He did?

Rachel: Mm-hmm.

Mac: Well, that's a good sign, isn't it?

Rachel: Maybe.

Jamie: Mac, he's still unconscious. There may be the possibility of brain damage. We just won't know for sure until I see the second set of test results.

Mac: Is there anything that we can do?

Jamie: Not really. We just have to wait and see.

Mac: I'm not good at waiting and seeing. There must be something we can do.

Rachel: Darling, maybe you ought to go back to the office and take care of things there. I'll be here.

Mac: With Sam in this condition?

Rachel: Sam won't be alone. Amanda and I will be here with him.

Jamie: Mom is right. It might be a good idea, Mac.

Rachel: We'll call you as soon as we hear anything.

[Phone rings]

Felicia: Maybe -- maybe the den? That isn't worth -- that's been done 100 times. What room? What room? Ok. Hello?

Jason: Felicia, hi. Jason Frame.

Felicia: Jason. Hi, how are you?

Jason: Great, thanks. Can I drop by a little later? I got something I want to talk to you about, and you could be a big help to me.

Felicia: Yeah, sure. Drop by anytime. I'm going to be home all day.

Jason: Great. I appreciate it. Thanks.

Felicia: You're welcome. I'll see you in a little bit. Bye-bye.

Jason: Bye.

Felicia: All right.. If I just --

[knock on door]

Felicia: Boy, didn't waste any time.

Matthew: Hi.

Felicia: Matthew. Hi, honey. What are you doing over here?

Matthew: Well, nobody was home when I got there, and I thought maybe they'd be here.

Felicia: No, no, they've all gone over to the hospital about Sam.

Matthew: Yeah. It's a real bummer, isn't it?

Felicia: Yeah.

Matthew: Have you seen my dad around?

Felicia: He's -- he's gone to the hospital. Come on in. Come on.

Matthew: Listen, maybe I could just stay here till he gets back?

Felicia: Well, I'd love that, but I really don't think that's what you should be doing. I think you should go over to the hospital. They're very upset about Sam. I know that they would want you there.

Matthew: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, you're right.

Felicia: Hey, you know what? Maybe later, we could all have dinner together -- your dad and you and me? You could come back from the hospital with him. What do you think?

Matthew: Yeah, I'll -- I'll have to see what's up at the hospital first. Thanks. Yeah, I'll see you later.

Amanda: Hi.

Rachel: Hi. Is there any change?

Amanda: No. No, he's still --

Rachel: Oh, sweetie.

Amanda: Mom --

Rachel: It's all right. I know.

Amanda: Tell me everything's going to be ok.

Rachel: It is. It's going to be ok. Honey, it really is. He's strong.

Amanda: Yeah, he is, isn't he? What did Jamie say?

Rachel: Um, he's going to check on him in a few minutes. What about you?

Amanda: What about me?

Rachel: Honey, you look so tired. Are you feeling all right?

Amanda: Really, Mom, I'm fine. I'm just worried about Sam, that's all.

Rachel: Honey, I'm worried about you. You need your rest, too.

Amanda: Mom, really. I can't think of anything right now except Sam. I mean, if something were to happen --

Rachel: Honey, don't even think that. He's going to be all right. I know he's going to be all right. He's young, he's healthy. He loves you so much. And you're sitting out here waiting for him, aren't you?

Amanda: Of course.

Rachel: Well, what more could any man need?

Amanda: Oh, Mom.

Rachel: Oh, sweetie. It's going to be all right. I just know it. You'll see.

Amanda: I'm sorry, I'm fine. I'm ok. When did Jamie say he was coming by?

Rachel: Oh, in a few minutes. He's just checking some tests.

Amanda: Sam's tests?

Rachel: I don't know.

Amanda: I have to talk to Jamie.

Rachel: Honey, he's doing everything he can for Sam.

Amanda: I know that. This is something else.

Rachel: What?

Amanda: Well, Vicky told me something that I think I should tell Jamie.

Rachel: What?

Amanda: Well, it may hurt him, but I think he has to know.

Rachel: What did she say?

Amanda: She told me that she overheard Adam telling Daddy that he had kissed Lisa.

Rachel: Well, Victoria Love -- Hudson -- whatever it is she's calling herself these days -- I don't think she's such a reliable source, and I don't think you should spread a story around that you don't know is true, especially one that would hurt Lisa or upset Jamie.

Jamie: Did I hear somebody mention my name?

Jamie: Come on, you two. My ears are burning. You were talking about me.

Amanda: We were just wondering when you were going to check in on Sam again.

Jamie: Oh, well, I'm here now.

Amanda: How is he doing?

Rachel: Do you have the test results?

Jamie: Yes.

Amanda: And what do they say?

Jamie: Well, there's no indication of any spinal cord injury, and that's good.

Rachel: Oh, thank goodness.

Jamie: Yeah, but there's --

Amanda: But -- but what?

Jamie: Well, Sam suffered a severe blow to his head, and we're not quite sure of the full extent of the damage. But what is clear is that he's going to need a lot of rest both here in the hospital and afterwards, once he's out.

Amanda: Out? You mean, he's going to be ok?

Jamie: Well --

Amanda: Mom, Sam is going to be ok!

Rachel: I know, I heard.

Jamie: No, wait -- now wait a minute. Wait a minute now. He's not out of the woods yet. He suffered a severe trauma, and there may be some residual damage we're not aware of.

Amanda: Is that why he's still unconscious?

Jamie: Well, it may be that his body just shut down for a while to concentrate on repairing itself. But it does indicate the seriousness of his condition.

Amanda: But he is going to be ok?

Jamie: Well, as soon as he regains consciousness, we'll be able to say for sure, but I think so, yes.

Amanda: Oh, Jamie!

Rachel: Matthew, Jamie says that Sam's going to be all right.

Matthew: Hey, great. Did you see my Dad around here? Felicia said he was here.

Rachel: Is that all you have to say?

Matthew: No, I -- I came by to see Sam.

Rachel: Matthew, we've been worried sick about Sam, and that's all you can say?

Matthew: No, you don't understand, Mom. I came here to see Sam.

Rachel: I don't know what's gotten into you.

Matthew: Mom, I was only trying to find Dad.

Rachel: Uh, Jamie, I'm going to go in and see Sam.

Amanda: I'll go with you.

Jamie: Sure. I'll call Mac later on. Hey, listen, bud, I think Mom's right. I don't know what's gotten into you lately. I mean, you've given her nothing but grief ever since you returned from school.

Matthew: Hey, hey, hey, I'm sorry, all right? But she doesn't understand what's going on here. None of you do. You people aren't listening to me.

Jamie: No, wait a minute, wait a minute, bud. Now, come on, if I were you, I think I would be trying to find a way to make it up to her. Now, why don't you follow her in there and tell her you're sorry?

Liz: And then my son Bill died in a boating accident.

Loretta: Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. Well, that must have been terrible for you.

Liz: Yes, it was. There were so many things we never said and we never did together. Are you sure you're all right?

Loretta: What? Oh, I'm sorry. I -- I was just --

Liz: Thinking about Sam.

Loretta: Yes, yes, I was. I -- oh, I hope he's going to be all right.

Liz: Of course he will. He's a very strong young man.

Loretta: Yes, he is. I've always leaned on him because of it. Too much so, I'm afraid.

Liz: I don't believe that.

Loretta: Oh, it's true. When Sam's father died, I -- I just fell apart. I used Sam as my crutch. I made him my little protector against the world. Poor boy, it must have been awful for him. I'm afraid I -- I haven't been much of a mother to either one of my boys.

Liz: Oh, I don't think that, Loretta. Both your sons seem to have turned out quite well.

Loretta: Oh, do you really think so? I worry about it so much. All the time, in fact. I was so mean to Mitch when he was growing up.

Liz: Oh, I don't believe you could be mean to anyone, Loretta.

Loretta: Oh.

Liz: Caustic, yes. Sarcastic, maybe. But mean? Never.

Loretta: Well, it's true. I was mean. You see, I -- I had to quit my career. I was an actress, you know.

Liz: I know.

[Loretta sighs]

Loretta: And when I got pregnant with Mitch, I had to quit. I always held it against him. I mean, it wasn't his fault. It was mine. And his father's, the old -- he left me shortly after Mitch was born. I could have been a star.

Liz: Of course. Well, I guess we should take care of this, now, shouldn't we?

Loretta: Oh, yes. My, I guess I have been rattling on. Let me --

Liz: No, no, not at all. Now please, I'll take care of this. I really enjoy spending money extravagantly these days.

Loretta: Well, are you sure?

Liz: Yes, please. Let this be my treat.

Loretta: Well, thank you. Thank you very much.

Liz: You're welcome very, very much.

Loretta: Must be nice, being able to walk into a store and, say, buy something -- well, anything. Not have to worry about how you're going to pay for it.

Liz: It certainly beats the alternative.

[Liz laughs]

Loretta: Tell me, Liz, with all that money, why do you work?

Liz: I need to do something. You know, the children are gone. They're out of my life. I have all this excess amount of energy. I need to -- I need to use it up. And I must confess, Cory Publishing doesn't -- what do the kids say? -- Turn me on.

Loretta: Oh, I don't think they say that anymore.

Liz: Oh. Well, whatever. Shall we go?

Loretta: Um, yes, I think we'd better.

[Knock on door]

Mac: What is it now?

Cass: Whoo. Tough day, huh?

Mac: Oh, you don't know the half of it, Cass. This takeover thing is driving me batty. Do you know, I don't even know yet who's behind this mess.

Cass: Yes, I know. Michael has filled me in on things.

Mac: He should be on his way to New York later. Since he's been through all this before, he thinks his lawyers in New York might be able to dig me out from underneath this mess.

Cass: Well, maybe I can help out a bit, too.

Mac: What are you saying?

Cass: That I'd like to take you up on that job offer that you made last week. That is, provided it's still good.

Mac: Still good? Welcome, welcome, welcome. But you sure you've got the time? What about the salon?

Cass: Well, the finances are all in place, so I do have some time on my hands for now.

Mac: That's just wonderful. Maybe we have a chance of beating this thing now.

Cass: Well, I don't know about that, but what are we waiting for? Let's get to it.

Mac: All right.

[Knock on door]

Felicia: Yeah, Jason, come on in. I'll be -- I'll be with you in just a second, ok?

Michael: Felicia?

Felicia: Michael, hi. How are you?

Michael: I'm sorry. You said to come in. I --

Felicia: Oh, no, no, no, of course, come in. I -- it was just that I was -- never mind. Hi, Michael.

Michael: Hi. How are you?

Felicia: How are you, honey?

Michael: Good to see you.

Felicia: How's Donna?

Michael: Well, she's doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances, I guess.

Felicia: I know how hard all of this is on you. Come on, sit down, please.

Michael: Ok, yeah, I've got to -- actually, I've only got a few minutes. I've got to be going to New York very soon.

Felicia: Yeah, Cass told me that you're helping Mac out.

Michael: Yeah, well, I'm going to -- I'm going to do what I can. Seems like when it rains it pours around here, right?

Felicia: You can say that again.

Michael: Yeah. I needed to ask you a question about Lisa.

Felicia: Lisa?

Michael: Yeah, I -- I heard that she left Bay City for a while.

Felicia: Well, yes. I mean, she's on a little trip out of town. She's doing some research for me for my new book. I was going to go with her, but then Mitch asked me if I would stay and help out with Matthew, so she went ahead and went alone.

Michael: That's all there is to it?

Felicia: Yeah. I'm afraid I don't understand.

Michael: Well, I -- I just thought there might be a little bit more to it than that.

Felicia: Honey, what are you getting at?

Michael: Did Lisa leave Bay City because she had to get away for a while? Look, what I'm trying to say is, is that I have a feeling that something is going on here, and I'd like to know exactly what it is.

Felicia: She and Jamie are having a few problems, and I thought a little trip away to, you know, sort out her feelings would be a good thing, but it's really nothing for you to worry about.

Michael: Is one of those problems Victoria?

Felicia: Michael, I think it's really just Lisa's nature. I just think she needs some time alone, that's all.

Michael: Oh, Felicia, I'm just afraid that the old Victoria is coming to the surface again. I've got to get to the bottom of this.

Felicia: Maybe you should talk to Vicky.

Michael: I intend to as soon as I get back from New York. Thank you.

Felicia: You're welcome.

Michael: I'll talk to you soon.

Felicia: Ok. Listen, give Donna my love, will you?

Michael: I will, definitely.

Felicia: Ok. Have a good trip.

Michael: Thanks. Bye.

Felicia: Bye. That's interesting.

[Knock on door]

Felicia: Why me? Come on in, Jason..

Jason: Felicia?

Felicia: Yeah?

Jason: Uh --

Felicia: Hi.

Jason: The door was open. I --

Felicia: Right.

Jason: Was that Michael I just saw going down the hall?

Felicia: Uh, yeah. Yeah, it was.

Jason: Yeah, I thought it looked like him.

Felicia: You said you wanted to talk to me about something when you called earlier.

Jason: I got a proposition for you. Business. Business proposition.

Cass: Yeah, I thought so. There was a precedent set -- Natalus vs. Allied -- that might apply.

Mac: Oh, good.

Liz: Oh, excuse me. I didn't realize --

Mac: No, it's all right, Liz. Perfectly -- you two know each other, I believe.

Liz: Yes, good evening.

Cass: It's always nice to see you again, Liz. You know, as a matter of fact, I've been meaning to tell you you've been a real good friend to Nicole recently.

Liz: Really?

Cass: Oh, yes. She and her family have had a tough time of it, and I just want to thank you for the support that you've shown her. It's been a real boom.

Mac: Liz is a great help here, too. I don't know what we'd do if ever we lost her.

Cass: Well, Mac, if you don't mind, I'll take a few of these home with me and see what I can make of them.

Mac: Sure.

Cass: And I always do my best work at night, anyway.

Mac: Thank you very much, Cass. I can't tell you how much I thank you.

Cass: You bet, Mac. So long, Liz.

Liz: Mac, where are you going?

Mac: Oh, well, I've done all I can here. I thought I'd go over to the hospital, see how things are going with Sam.

Liz: Well, Mac, before you go, there's something I have to discuss with you.

Mac: Yes, Liz?

Liz: Well, this -- ahem -- it isn't easy for me. I feel at loose ends lately.

Mac: Oh?

Liz: Yes, I think -- I think that I should quit my job at Cory Publishing. You and Rachel have been wonderful to me --

Mac: Liz, Liz -- no. I meant what I said to Cass. I really need you, especially with this takeover business.

Liz: Mac, it's just that I need --

Mac: Liz, please. This is not a good time for Cory Publishing. I'm really counting on you, Liz. I was hoping you'd work directly with Cass on the precedents for this case.

Matthew: Mom, I'm sorry I've been making things so difficult for you lately. I don't mean to, really.

Rachel: I know. Thank you for telling me that.

Matthew: Yeah, it's just -- you know, things have been pretty rough for me lately, too, and --

Rachel: I know they have been.

[Matthew sighs]

Rachel: I guess I could understand your position a lot better if I knew what was going on, if you'd talk to me.

Matthew: I can't. Please don't try to make me. I just can't talk about it anymore, you know?

Mitch: You can't what?

Matthew: Uh, nothing Dad. You here to see Sam?

Mitch: How is he?

Rachel: He's still unconscious, but Jamie says he's probably going to be better.

Mitch: Probably?

Rachel: He won't know until he fully regains consciousness. Well, I'll let you guys talk.

Matthew: Yeah.

Mitch: Thank you.

Matthew: You've gone in to see him yet?

Mitch: No. No, I haven't. Have you decided to talk about what happened at school?

Matthew: No, I haven't.

Mitch: You know, it -- it makes it a lot harder on everybody when -- when you're stubborn like this.

Matthew: Dad, I thought you understood why I can't say anything.

Mitch: Well, in a way I do, yes, I understand. I mean, a lot of it's not your fault. You can't help it. And a lot of it you got from me, but just understand that there are people there to help you.

Matthew: Yeah -- I know, I know. I just don't need their help right now. I got things under control. I can --

Mitch: Ok. You're a smart kid. The sooner you learn the lesson, the better. There's no need in you trying to do things or go at things the way that I go at them. Just think about it.

Matthew: All right, all right. Ok, I will.

Mitch: I'm going to go see Sam.

Matthew: Ok.

Mac: Loretta. Loretta?

Loretta: What? Oh, oh, Mac. How are you? I'm sorry. I -- I must have just drifted off for a while.

Mac: That's all right.

Loretta: Have you seen Sam?

Mac: Yes, I just came from his room.

Loretta: Oh, is there any --

Mac: No, I'm afraid there's no change, Loretta. He's still unconscious. But Jamie is really a very fine doctor.

Loretta: Well, that's what everyone keeps telling me.

Mac: And your Sam is strong and healthy. He's going to pull through this, I just know it.

Loretta: You know, I've been sitting here for, oh, I don't know, quite some time. I just can't bring myself to go in there.

Mac: Well, I think you should. It might help you, Loretta.

Loretta: I feel like I don't have the right.

Mac: But you're his mother.

Loretta: Oh, a mere technicality.

[Loretta sighs]

Loretta: I'm afraid I've never been much of a mother to Sam -- or to Mitch. I was always too much of a child myself to be any kind of real parent.

Mac: No, you're just upset at the moment.

Loretta: No, no, it's true. I always thought mostly about myself. Living for the moment, as they say. Now one of my sons is seriously injured, and I can't help. I can't even help him pay his bills.

Mac: Well, you're not to worry about that. I'm taking care of everything.

Loretta: Oh, no, no. I couldn't let you do that. It wouldn't be right.

Mac: Why not, Loretta? Sam is a part of my family now. And so are you, Loretta, if you want to be.

Loretta: Oh. Thank you. Thank you so much. Well, I -- I think I -- I should try and sit with Sam for a while.

Mac: You do that.

Loretta: Oh, thank you. Thank you for everything.

[Monitor beeps]

Mitch: Come on, Sam. You got to get through this. You got a wife, you've got a baby, and they need you. You've got a baby coming. Just got to get through, Sam, that's all there is to it.

Mitch: What about all those paintings you were going to paint? I need you. We were just getting to know each other, Sam. I don't want to lose that. I don't want to lose that.

Felicia: So, what kind of business proposition?

Jason: A good one.

Felicia: Really?

Jason: Well, I feel it's a very good one.

Felicia: Sugar?

Jason: No, no. Black. If there's anybody in Bay City that I could go to for help, it's Felicia Gallant.

Felicia: You think so, huh?

Jason: Well, I know you just helped Lisa. Thanks. I mean, getting her out of town on that little assignment to keep her away -- that was good. I -- look, I'm very worried myself about Jamie and Lisa. They haven't been getting along very well. They seem to be on other planes or something, I don't know. But to get her out of town where she could just sit and think things through, that was nice.

Felicia: Well, that was the general idea. Thank you.

Jason: That's what I'm trying to tell you. You seem to always know the right thing to do for the right person to help them out.

Felicia: Which, of course, brings us back to you.

Jason: Well, right, why would I want to talk to anybody else?

Felicia: Ok, I'm listening.

Jason: I -- I want to throw a publicity party -- an event that I could let everybody know that I'm reactivating Frame Construction.

Felicia: Frame Construction?

Jason: Yeah.

Felicia: I didn't realize that you had gotten the name back.

Jason: That's all set. That's been worked out.

Felicia: Really? Great.

Jason: Yeah, but my problem is I don't know anybody here in town. You know everybody.

Felicia: Well, not everybody.

Jason: You know everybody who counts, Felicia. I want this to be a big successful party -- publicity event of the year.

Felicia: Well, parties are always fun.

Jason: Yeah.

Felicia: What is it? I mean, do you want to rent out Tops for the night? I mean, can you afford to rent out Tops?

Jason: No, I -- I got a little different idea.

Felicia: Ok, what?

Jason: You tell me if it's too corny, ok?

Felicia: Ok.

Jason: I want to throw an old-fashioned barn dance at the Frame farm.

Felicia: A barn dance?

Jason: Too corny?

Felicia: No! I think it's a wonderful idea.

Jason: Yeah?

Felicia: I do. It's certainly different. It could be a lot of fun.

Jason: Yeah. You'd be able to help me not just with catering, but what I'd really like is for you to help me with my guest list.

Felicia: Ah. Yeah, of course, I could do that.

Jason: Great. This could be the biggest party Bay City ever saw.

Rachel: What is it, honey?

Mac: Has anything changed with Sam?

Amanda: No. No, um -- it's about "Brava," or me working at "Brava," actually.

Mac: What, Amanda?

Amanda: I don't think that it's a good idea that I keep working there -- until Sam recovers, that is. If he recovers.

Rachel: Honey, of course he's going to recover. It's just going to take some time.

Mac: Darling, the body can take an awful lot of punishment and bounce back. It's just going to take time. It's not going to be overnight, that's all.

Amanda: I know. That's one of the main reasons why I think I should quit. Sam's going to need me. He's going to need me to take care of him.

Mac: Amanda, we don't want you worrying about anything. Your mother and I are going to see that everything is taken care of.

Amanda: But -- but I --

Mac: I mean it, Amanda. We have only one priority now and that is to see Sam through this crisis.

Bianca: Well, that's --

Felicia: Hi.

Mitch: Hi.

Felicia: How'd it go?

Mitch: He's still unconscious.

Felicia: Oh, honey, I'm sorry.

Mitch: I know Jamie's trying to be real optimistic. Maybe it's just a case where he's going to be laid up for a couple of months.

Felicia: Well, I hope so. That would be good. Does Jamie have any idea how long he'll be unconscious?

Mitch: He doesn't know, and they don't know. It's just going to be a matter of wait and see.

Felicia: Hey, how about a back rub? Come on.

Mitch: Sure.

Felicia: Sit up.. You know, I have a feeling everything's going to work out just fine. I just feel it.

Mitch: Oh, yeah?

Felicia: Yeah.

Mitch: Well, if it's not Sam, it's Matthew.

Felicia: Matthew? What has he done now?

Mitch: Well, not only is he staying clammed up about what happened at Winston, he's being real quiet about why he got in a fight at Bay High. I mean, he gave an explanation, but -- I think there's more to it than that.

Felicia: What did he say?

Mitch: I'm sworn to secrecy.

Felicia: Oh, no.

Mitch: Yeah. I mean, it's not as though Rachel doesn't have her hands full with Amanda. And there's Matthew.

Felicia: But isn't this typical of kids? I mean, don't they all sort of get like this at some point?

Mitch: He should know better. It's a very difficult time.. I mean, it's like he doesn't have the respect -- I'm sounding like a typical father, aren't I?

Felicia: You're a wonderful father.

Mitch: Am I?

Felicia: The best.

Mitch: I'm trying.

Both: Very trying.

[Felicia laughs]

Mitch: How's the book?

Felicia: Oh, it's awful.

Mitch: Why?

Felicia: Oh -- I can't concentrate here. I've been here all day. I've had 1,000 interruptions. It's like Grand Central station.

Mitch: I'm sorry.

Felicia: Oh, what are you sorry about? It's not your fault. Don't be silly.

Mitch: I don't know what I would do without you.

Felicia: Really? I love you, too. Everything's going to be fine. You'll see.

Mitch: I hope so. I hope so.

Loretta: Hello, Rachel. Matthew.

Rachel: How are you --

Matthew: Grandma -- Loretta?

Rachel: How are you?

Loretta: Much better, thank you. Have you --

Rachel: Yes, I'm just getting ready to go in.

Loretta: Oh, good, good. Well, I guess I'll just go on home.

Rachel: Oh, um, Matthew, why don't you take Loretta home, and the two of you can have dinner together?

Loretta: Oh, I'm sorry. I already ate -- with Liz. She was kind enough to take me out for a little talk.. I guess I just needed to be with someone.

Matthew: Yeah, well, that's all right. I -- Felicia invited me to dinner over at her place tonight.

Rachel: She did?

Matthew: Yeah. But if it's ok, I -- I'd like to stay here with you.

Rachel: Yeah, of course it's ok. Thanks.

[Sam groans]

Amanda: Shh, it's ok. Shh, Sam, Sam.

Sam: The baby --

Amanda: What?

Sam: The baby.

Amanda: What about the baby? It's ok, it's ok.

Sam: I killed the baby. I killed the baby.

Amanda: Sam, Sam, no. Everything's fine. The baby's fine. I'm fine.

Sam: I've got to save the baby.

Rachel: What's he talking about? The child he almost hit?

Sam: I've got to save the baby.

Amanda: No, Sam, Sam --

Rachel: Sam, it's all right. The baby's fine.

Amanda: Sam! Sam! Mom, what's wrong?

Rachel: Sam?

Amanda: Sam!
