Nicole: No, I don't think I'm jumping to conclusions, Donna. He came home late last night, and he slept in the other room. You know, I have a feeling that the honeymoon is already over, and it never even started. Oh, no, I've got to go.

Cass: Hi.

Nicole: Oh. Hi. Um, the coffee's all made.

Cass: Great. I didn't think I'd have a chance to have any. I like your pajamas.

Nicole: Thanks.

Cass: Did Drew buy them for you?

Nicole: That does it!

Cass: I'm sorry.. I have a meeting to get to.

Nicole: No, Cass, you're not going anywhere until I find out what's happening to us.

Mac: But you cannot open it until you're on your honeymoon.

Michael: Mac, you didn't have to give us anything.

Mac: Why shouldn't I?

Michael: Well, after you've been married this many times as Donna and I have --

Mac: Oh, Rachel and I know all about that. Listen, getting married to the right person is always very special, no matter how many times you do it. Michael, you've been such a help on this takeover.

Michael: Well, I hope so, Mac. That brings me to the reason I'm here. Cass and I have reason to believe that the hostile takeover attempt of your company is being orchestrated right here in Bay City.

Mac: You really think so?

Michael: I know it sounds implausible.

Mac: Someone who lives in Bay City?

Michael: Well, when Cass and I started to investigate the company that's taking this action --

Mac: Bennett publishing.

Michael: Right. We began to look at who owns what, and the trail got pretty confusing.

Mac: Cass told me about that.

Michael: Yeah. But the trail seems to lead right back here.

Mac: To an individual or a corporation?

Michael: An individual who seems to be fronting for a conglomerate..

Mac: But aren't these things usually the other way around?

Michael: Well, not in this case. But the good thing is that Cass seems to have an idea about who that individual is.

Mitch: Rachel.

Rachel: Hi. I want to talk to Matthew.

Mitch: Well, uh --

Rachel: Look, I'm in a hurry. I'm on my way to the hospital.

Mitch: I understand that.

Rachel: I know he loves staying here. But in the future, if he's going to stay here, would somebody please let me know?

Mitch: We've got a real problem.

Rachel: What?

Mitch: Well, I dropped Matthew off at school yesterday, and that's the last time I saw him.

Rachel: You don't even know where he is?

Mitch: I thought he was staying at your place.

Rachel: He called the house yesterday afternoon and left a message with Hilda. He said he wasn't going to be back. I just assumed --

Mitch: Why didn't you call me?

Rachel: Because I thought he was staying here. Oh, no! What has he done now?

Mitch: Look, just calm down. We don't know that he's done anything.

Rachel: You know, this is what happens when you start bouncing a kid around.

Mitch: Look, everything --

Rachel: Pretty soon the parents can't keep track of him.

Mitch: Everything was fine. I took him to school, there was no problem. The only thing we talked about was --

Rachel: What?

Mitch: He -- he made some mention of wanting his friend Kevin to come here and stay.

Rachel: Boarding school Kevin?

Mitch: Yes, yes, that Kevin. I told him that I would think about it, that I would let him know. Of course, he didn't seem to like that answer.

Rachel: You mean, he ran away because he couldn't have a friend over?

Mitch: We don't know that he ran away.

Rachel: I'd prefer to think that he ran away. It's less scary. I mean, he's been out all night!

[Knock on door]

Matthew: Ah, Blake's boarding house, I presume?

Rachel: Matthew, where on earth have you been?

Matthew: Hi, Mom. You remember Kevin, don't you?

Rachel: What on earth is going on with you? Now you're going to stay out all night without permission?

Matthew: I told Hilda.

Rachel: You didn't tell Hilda what you were doing.

Matthew: Well, I thought you'd say no.

Rachel: So you went ahead and did it anyway?

Mitch: Rachel --

Rachel: Don't you -- don't you take his side in this.

Mitch: Look, I thought I told you that we would think about it, that I would talk to you about whether Kevin could stay here or not. Sorry, Kevin.

Matthew: I know. It's just Kevin couldn't stay at school.

Rachel: What on earth have you two done that's so terrible?

Mitch: Come here.

Rachel: No, wait a minute!

Mitch: Just come here just one second.

Rachel: You can't get rid of me like this, you know.

Mitch: I'm not trying to get rid of you. You're not going to budge an inch, he's not going to budge an inch. The fact is he's here, he's safe, he's alive. Kevin's here whether we like it or not.

Rachel: What is this Kevin? Is he a bad influence or something?

Mitch: I understand why you're upset, but I don't think Matthew will.

Rachel: I don't care if he understands. He's got to stop lying.

Mitch: Well, he will. If you'll just let me deal with it, I can handle this better if you're not here.

Rachel: You can't just eliminate me from this situation.

Mitch: I'm not trying to eliminate you. I'm trying to help here. Just let me handle it.

Rachel: Will you tell me what's going on?

Mitch: Yes, you know that I will. Let me handle it.

Rachel: Ok.

Matthew: Boy, thanks, Dad.

Kevin: Yeah, thanks a lot.

Matthew: Thanks a lot.

Mitch: Don't thank me. What the hell have you been up to?

Cass: How do I know what's happening to us? You're the one who seems to be in charge here.

Nicole: Me?

Cass: Well, you and Drew.

Nicole: I have no interest in Drew.

Cass: You took financing from him in a second.

Nicole: Oh, it was not a second.

Cass: Well, you had no interest in marrying me to get your trust fund.

Nicole: Well, with what I have left in my trust fund and a quarter, I could make a phone call.

Cass: You didn't know that then.

Nicole: Well, I didn't want you to have to marry me so we could get my money.

Cass: What?

Nicole: Yeah, and what about you, huh?

Cass: What about me?

Nicole: Well, you're dashing off to meetings, you're coming in at all hours, bailing out of this company as fast as you can.

Cass: I was never a vital cog here.

Nicole: You were vital -- to me.

Cass: Oh, great, past tense.

Nicole: Oh, come on, Cass. You know what I mean.

Cass: Look, Mac needs my help and we need money.

Nicole: You don't think I'm going to take a penny of what you make working for Mac, do you?

Cass: Well, you don't have to now, not with old Drew as your personal banker.

Nicole: I don't know why this is happening. I don't know why you're jealous.

Cass: We've been over this. I'm not jealous.

Nicole: Unless you needed me to be dependent on you.

Cass: Oh, come on!

Nicole: And when I became financially independent --

Cass: Independent?

Nicole: That's right!

Cass: You are you in hock up to your eyeballs to this shark in a Brooks Brothers suit.

Nicole: Oh, he's not a shark!

Cass: Oh, please!

Nicole: Well, he's too dull to be a shark.

Cass: That's true.

Nicole: Oh, Cass. I missed you last night.

Cass: Don't you think I miss you, too?

Nicole: Well, then why don't we stop? Missing each other, I mean.

[Phone rings]

Nicole: Oh, don't lose your place.

Cass: Ok.


Nicole: [French accent] Nicole Love's salon. Mademoiselle Love is in a meeting right now.

Mac: Oh, well, actually, I wanted to speak to Cass Winthrop. This is Mac Cory.

Nicole: [Normal voice] oh. It's for you. Mac.

Cass: Oh, I'm supposed to be at a meeting now.

Nicole: Oh.

Cass: I can't just -- I have to. It's important. Yes, Mac, hi.

Mac: Cass, Michael is here in the office with me. He's told me what you two have come up with, and he thinks that you should join us.

Cass: Yes, yes, I know.

Mac: Well, great. How soon could you get over?

Cass: I -- I could get over there right -- I could leave right now, actually. Wait just a minute, Mac.

Nicole, I'm sorry.

Cass: I'll be right there, Mac.

Mac: This isn't a bad time for you, is it?

Cass: Oh, no. No, not at all.

Jason: You're right on time..

Vicky: Well, from the tone of your charming message, I thought I'd better be.

Jason: Want some coffee?

Vicky: Why not.

Jason: Well, I'm used to mincing words.

Vicky: Oh, obviously. "Get your butt over here by 9:30."

Jason: I'm tired of waiting for Jamie to make up his mind on Frame Construction.

Vicky: So?

Jason: So I want you to help him make it up.

Vicky: How do you want me to do that?

Jason: You've got so many kinds of persuasive powers, you're not even aware of all of them.

Vicky: Spoon? So, what if I do get Jamie to change his mind? What's in it for me?

Jason: I have already told Jamie that you are the kind of girl who'd be much better for him than Lisa.

Vicky: Oh, "the kind of girl"?

Jason: Well, I will push much more strongly in your direction.

Vicky: You can't even get him to change over a name for a construction company.

Jason: That's business -- Rachel Cory behind it all. Other things he listens to me on.

Vicky: I wonder why?

Jason: Because he's a Frame. You can doll him up and send him out to medical school, but underneath he's my brother's son, and that means something to Jamie, and I'm a contact to that.

Vicky: What's so important about being a Frame?

Jason: You want to be a Hudson, don't you?

Vicky: Yeah, well, the Hudsons are rich.

Jason: When I was growing up, my folks used to tell us, "life's just a string of possibilities, and we are good enough and strong enough to make the most out of any of them."

Vicky: So that's what you're doing?

Jason: That's what I'm doing right now, yeah.

Vicky: Are all the Frame children successful?

Jason: Well, some of us are and some of us just went wild, but we're all something. Jamie likes that. You need to understand that if you want him.

Vicky: Yes, sir.

Jason: Where you headed?

Vicky: The hospital -- unless, of course, you have any more wonderful nuggets of wisdom.

Jason: Mention the barn dance to him. It's going to kick off the company, and he might take you if Lisa's not back.

Vicky: If I see him.

Jason: I think you'll see him. Vicky, we can both have what we want.

Cass: So, Mac, what did you think of that list of names I found in Drew Marsten's suite?

Mac: Seems a very complex situation.

Cass: Well, don't worry about it. I'll make sense of it, and then I'll get back to you on it. The next order of business is we started looking into Bennett Publishing and found ourselves wading through holding companies, paper corporations --

Mac: I read your research. It was very thorough.

Cass: Boring, huh?

Mac: But how did you find out that the takeover is being engineered from Bay City?

Michael: Oh, well, we started investigating certain names that kept cropping up on various boards of directors.

Cass: And one thing that several of them had in common was holdings here in Bay City.

Michael: Distinctly shady holdings.

Mac: Do you know specifically why they want my company?

Cass: Well, I'm not sure yet, but I think it's got to do with more than just money.

Michael: For the time being, however, this is supposed to appear to be just a normal takeover attempt.

Mac: That Bennett Publishing just wants another publishing company..

Cass: To add to the list of rags they already have.

Mac: Well, they can't do this to me!

Michael: Sorry, Mac. Somebody in Bay City is trying to see that they can.

Mac: So this Drew Marsten -- he seems to be involved?

Cass: Well, I can't prove it yet, but it all fits.

Mac: I -- I never even heard of this guy.

Cass: He lived here some years ago and then dropped out of sight for a while, and now he's back.

Michael: He came back right around the time your problems began.

Mac: But do you have any other proof?

Cass: Not yet, but I'm going to keep a close eye on this man.

Michael: Wait a minute, Cass. You're not going to tail this guy yourself.

Mac: No. For all we know, he could be very dangerous.

Cass: No, no, not this guy.

Michael: How about the people he works for?

Cass: Don't worry about it. He won't suspect me.

Michael: No, there's no way. I'm going to have my security men trail him.

Cass: It won't work. This guy is too sharp. He'd spot a detective in a second.

Mac: But we do have to get close to the man to find out what he's doing.

Cass: Yes, we do. And unfortunately, I think I know exactly how to do it.

Vicky: Well, I know it sounds a little corny, but a barn dance could be fun if you have the right person to do-si-do with.

Jamie: The barn dance?

Vicky: Yeah, for Frame Construction.

Jamie: Who would put on a barn dance for a company that doesn't exist?

Vicky: Well, Jason says it exists.

Jamie: Jason says what he wants to believe. I never gave him permission to use that name. He's just talking out of his hat.

Vicky: Well, maybe if you'd talk to him, you could both settle something and --

Jamie: That's just the point, isn't it? It's between Jason and me.

Vicky: Ok. I got your drift. I'm sorry I asked.

Jamie: And I'm sorry you wasted a trip down here. See you later.

Vicky: Yes.

Jamie: I thought you were leaving.

Vicky: In a while, ok?

Jamie: Surely, you have more important things to do than hang around a hospital corridor.

Vicky: Jamie, why don't you go back to work and don't worry about me, ok?

Jamie: What's the matter? You're looking for another doctor to do-si-do, aren't you?

Vicky: Jamie, I am waiting for Mikey. Is that all right with you?

Jamie: Sorry. Sorry.

Vicky: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Um, I just bought him some books, that's all.

Jamie: Well, that's very nice of you.

Vicky: It's so fun to shop for him.

Jamie: You've seen him every day now, haven't you?

Vicky: Yeah.. Hey, has Adam or Scott given you any word on his parents or anything?

Jamie: Not that I know of, no.

Vicky: That is so sad. Poor little boy. Ward of the state -- oh, it makes me sick.

Jamie: Yeah, I know.

Vicky: I just wish I could help. He's probably going to hate these books anyway.

Jamie: Books? What books? Let me see those books.

[Jamie laughs]

Jamie: These are great books. He's going to love seeing you. What are you talking about? Listen, I have to get back to work.

Vicky: Yeah, ok.

Jamie: Listen, keep me informed about little Mikey. If anybody can get through to him, you just might do it.

Vicky: See you around.

Felicia: Why, Sam Fowler, you know what you look like? You look like one of the guys in my books. Yes. "His dark, glossy hair sort of in marked contrast to the blue pillow --" this is where you pant, honey.

[Amanda pants]

Felicia: Oh, that's it, that's it. "His ashen face. But still --"

Sam: Felicia.

Felicia: "You could sense the power behind the man --"

Sam: Felicia?

Felicia: Yes, honey?

Sam: The reason my hair is glossy is because they won't let me wash it.

Felicia: Ah.

Sam: The reason my face is ashen is because I just had one of their breakfasts.

Amanda: He's a little grumpy this morning. I guess you can tell he's getting better.

Felicia: Yeah, the old hospital blues, huh?

Sam: Yeah, well, the better I get, the more I hate this place. You know something that's even weirder?

Amanda and Felicia: What?

Sam: I miss Amanda's cooking.

Amanda: That bump on the head sure left you witty.

Felicia: I can see that the both of you are anxious to get out of here. Is there any word when that might be?

Sam: No. See, they're not real good about straight answers around here. They say tomorrow or maybe next week or maybe next month.

Felicia: Well, let's hope it's tomorrow. But in case it isn't --

Sam: What's this?

Felicia: Well, I sort of thought an artist like yourself could go a little crazy in this -- in this room with these boring walls and this horrible painting.

Amanda: Oh --

Sam: Oh, "Les demoiselles d'avignon."

Felicia: Yes. Now, you know, this is the copy. The original is in the Museum of Modern Art, and they're a little picky about loaning it out.

Sam: This is one of my favorites.

Felicia: Great. I was hoping you'd feel that way. All right, let's do it. All right? Ok. Out with the terrible and up with the wonderful. You can look at it when you get tired of game shows.

Amanda: That's great.

Sam: Thank you.

Felicia: You're welcome. You know, I hope it inspires you. It inspired me. In fact, it gave me a great idea. I don't know why I didn't think of it before.

Amanda: What's that?

Felicia: Well, you know, I spend a lot of time at Tops, and I walked in the other day and, you know, I noticed for the first time that the walls are all bare, and since Picassos and Renoirs are a little expensive for a restaurant, I thought Sam here might give me a good price.

Sam: Felicia, look --

Felicia: Honey, everyone would see your work, and I think it could generate a lot more sales.

Sam: I don't know, Felicia. Look, I appreciate --

Felicia: It makes a lot of sense, Sam. It does.

Sam: Felicia, I appreciate what you're doing, ok? But the answer is still no. If I'm going to make it, I got to make it on my own.

Felicia: Oh, for heaven's sakes. Honey, didn't you ever hear of Picasso's brother? You know, he was going with a woman who owned a restaurant, and she hung up all his paintings, and do you know that's how it all really began?

Sam: No.

Felicia: And then there's Whistler's mother. She had a diner. Yes, and she hung up all his paintings next to the daily special.

Amanda: Well, there you go.

Sam: No, ok?

Felicia: Sam, please, let me help you. Honey, look, if you don't want to show your work at Tops, that's ok. I think that we should get you a little gallery.

Sam: What did Mitch ever do to deserve you?

Felicia: I don't know. I ask myself that a lot.

Amanda: Come on, Sam, don't just say no. Think about it.

Sam: Ok, I just think that --

Felicia: Sam, listen to your wife. Think about it. Now, I've really got to go. You look wonderful.

Amanda: Thank you.

Felicia: Ok, I'll see you. Think about it.

Sam: Thanks.

Felicia: Bye.

Amanda: Bye. Hmm.

Sam: She is a great person.

Amanda: You know, she wouldn't have made you that offer if she didn't believe in your work.

Sam: I know that. I just don't want any charity, ok?

Amanda: Well, one thing's for sure --

Sam: What's that?

Amanda: That accident didn't knock any sense into you.

Mitch: So you drove up to boarding school last night to pick up Kevin?

Matthew: Yeah, and to get back here before anyone started to worry, you know.

Mitch: Well, you didn't quite make it, son.

Matthew: Yeah, I know. Mom is really upset.

Mitch: So am I. And I'm going to tell you something, and I want it to sink in. Your mother is no dummy. I'm no dummy. We've been your age, we know what's going on. Don't play us against each other.

Matthew: I'm not trying to play you up. Kevin's my friend --

Mitch: No one knew where you were! What if -- what if something would've happened? We wouldn't have known. What if we'd have needed you? We wouldn't know where to find you.

Matthew: Who's ever needed me around here?

Mitch: Look, I know that I haven't been the role model around here. I know I'm not one to lay down a lot of rules for you. And I've never said, you know, "be in at 10:00" or "go do your homework."

Matthew: Yeah, well, I think that's great.

Mitch: Yeah, because it suits your plans. I mean, if you think your Mom might say no to something, you don't even bother to ask her.

Matthew: Well, she gets uptight about everything, all right?

Mitch: She's not getting uptight about everything. She's getting uptight about the way you're acting.

I'm getting uptight about the way you're acting because the way that you're acting is real sneaky, and I don't want my son to be a sneak!

Matthew: It's just that --

Mitch: I don't want my son to be a sneak. Do you hear what I'm saying to you? Or does it even bother you what I might think about you?

Matthew: All right, I made a mistake, ok?

Mitch: Yeah, you made a mistake. You know, I got your Mom out of here because I thought she might have been a bit uptight about handling this. But I'm starting to see what she has to deal with, and I'm telling you, you'd better straighten up and you fly right. You're grounded. You go to school, you go home, or you come here. You got it?

Matthew: But, Dad, Kevin's here right now.

Mitch: You got it?

Matthew: Yeah, I got it, all right?

[Door slams]

Mitch: Yeah, I thought I'd tell Rachel, "I've got it under control, you're a bit uptight, don't worry, I'll take care of it." I don't see how she did it all these years.

Felicia: You know, no one ever said it was easy to be a parent. And unfortunately, in your case, you don't have the scar tissue to handle a teenager.

Mitch: Well, I need some scar tissue. I'm telling you, the kid doesn't think about anybody but himself.

Felicia: Well, I think his hormones tell him to do that.

Mitch: Well, doesn't he have one little hormone that says, "stop acting like a jerk, stop acting like a jerk"?

Felicia: But, honey, that's what you're here for.

Rachel: So Matthew stayed out all night and none of us knew about it.

Jamie: Well, good.

Rachel: What do you mean, "good"? He's just a kid.

Jamie: Well, I think it's good you didn't know. At least you got a good night's sleep before you screamed at him.

Rachel: Well, I let Mitch talk me out of yelling at him. He said he would handle it, but he's not going to. He's going to listen to Matthew's side and cave in.

Jamie: We wouldn't want that, now, now would we?

Rachel: Jamie, tell me not to worry. Tell me that there's nothing seriously wrong.

Jamie: You want the truth?

Rachel: I don't know.

Jamie: Sometimes it's -- it's hard having a father as great as Mac when he's not your real father. I mean, sometimes loving Mac feels disloyal to your real Dad, as great as Mac is.

Rachel: Yes, but Mac has never tried to keep Matthew from Mitch, at least not recently.

Jamie: Well, Matthew may be bouncing off the walls right now, but don't worry too much about him. I'd worry more if he was accepting everything as is.

Rachel: Hmm. None of my kids are good at that.

Jamie: Now, why do you think that is?

Rachel: Jamie -- your father would be proud of you.

Jamie: I hope so.

Rachel: You doubt that?

Jamie: Well, I just hope I'm doing the right thing with this -- with Jason.

Rachel: What's up now?

Jamie: Same old thing. He's still pushing his plans for this dance, and I still haven't given him permission to use the name.

Rachel: That's a typical Frame move.. They only listen to what they want to hear.

Jamie: But it doesn't make sense, this dance. That's how you raise money for a charity, not a commercial venture.

Rachel: Well, keep your eye on him.

Jamie: Oh, you can count on that. That's my father's name he's playing around with. I'm keeping a very close eye on him. I'll walk you out. Come on.

Cass: So this Drew guy just kind of drifted into Bay City, huh?

Nicole: I don't know. What does "drifted" mean?

Cass: Well, does he have a reason to be here and does he have business here?

Nicole: Isn't that none of your business?

Cass: I'm a curious guy.

Nicole: Curious or jealous?

Cass: Oh, will you stop with this jealous bit, please? I mean, the guy pops up out of nowhere. He's hanging around. You need financing, there he is.

Nicole: Cass, last I heard, this was a free country.

Cass: Yes, but don't you find it just a trifle coincidental? I mean, what does -- what does the guy do? Does he have businesses he takes care of? What?

Nicole: What do you want me to do, grill him? Shine a light in his face and say, "what are you doing here?"

Cass: Aren't you curious? Don't you want to know?

Nicole: Just pass him the guacamole maybe and say, "do you have any business here?"

Cass: What are you talking about, "guacamole"?

Nicole: Oh, I forgot to tell you.

Cass: What?

Nicole: Um, he and I are having dinner together tonight, here. Oh, gosh, as a matter of fact, I better go smash that avocado.

Cass: Dinner here? Alone? Well, we're just going to have to see about that.

Michael: Hey, how we doing there, big fella?

Vicky: Oh, Dad, what are you doing here?

Michael: Well, I just came down to get a pre-marriage blood test. You know, if I get another one of those, I think I'm going to become anemic. So what's this in your ear up here? What's this? What's that?

Vicky: I didn't know you could do that.

Michael: That's a quarter. What do you mean, you didn't know I could do it? What's this right here, huh? Oh.

Vicky: Oh, David Copperfield, watch out.

Michael: Well, don't spend it all in one place.

Vicky: Thank you.

Michael: So -- hey, you been out-- you been outside?

Vicky: Yeah, we were in the park.

Michael: Hey, the park? Yeah, I could tell. You've got really shiny red cheeks there, you do.

Vicky: Yes, well, he was --

Mikey: Money.

Michael: "Money."

Vicky: "Money," yes. He knows that word, huh?

Nurse: There you are, Mikey. Did you have a nice time in the park?

Mikey: Park.

Nurse: Thanks.

Michael: Oh. Nurse? Um --

Nurse: Yes, Mr. Hudson?

Michael: Nothing, nothing.

Nurse: Let's go get some lunch. Come on.

Vicky: Hey. Bye.

Vicky: He really gets to you, doesn't he?

Michael: Yeah, he really gets to me. Look, has any family shown up? Anyone shown up at all? It just doesn't make sense, Victoria. It just doesn't make sense.

Jamie: And so I don't appreciate getting invitations to some barn dance to celebrate Frame Construction when you don't have any right to the name, Jason!

Jason: Vicky just jumped the gun a little, that's all.

Jamie: Vicky jumped the gun?

Jason: Yeah.

Jamie: What are you talking to her about this for?

Jason: I'm sorry.

Jamie: Listen, Jason, let me put this on the line for you -- you're talking about my father's name. You're talking about my father's company. Don't try to roll over me, Jason. You got that? It's not going to work.

Jason: It's my name, too, Jamie. I seem to be the only one who remembers that.

Cass: Ok. Well, Drewski's definitely not going to talk to me. And Drewski is most definitely not going to talk to Mac. So there's only one person in this burg that Drewski is going to talk to. This dinner tonight could be good for us after all.

Nicole: Hi.

Cass: Oh, hi. How's your guacamole?

Nicole: I'm sorry.

Cass: Oh, that bad, huh?

Nicole: Out in the kitchen, I realized that, well, I haven't exactly been sensitive. I really shouldn't have said that about dinner.

Cass: You're apologizing to me for being insensitive? That's a good one.

Nicole: Well, I don't think at this time when things between us are a little tense that I should throw someone like Drew in your face, so I've decided that I'm going to cancel dinner tonight.

Cass: Well, that's very ni-- what?

Nicole: Well, I just can call Drew and tell him that I really don't think it's a good idea.

Cass: No, no, wait, wait, wait.

Nicole: What?

Cass: I just want to -- I just wanted to tell you that it's good you're coming to your senses about this.

Nicole: Excuse me?

Cass: Well, I'm just glad to see that you're not being foolish about all of this.

Nicole: Foolish? You said "foolish," right?

Cass: Yeah, mm-hmm.

Nicole: Oh.

Cass: Yeah, you obviously realize that I don't approve of you seeing this bozo.

Nicole: What? You don't approve?

Cass: No, no.

Nicole: Oh, oh.

Cass: And so I just wanted you to know that you're back in my good graces, maybe.

Nicole: Oh. Drew. Yeah, hi. It's me. I just wanted to make sure that we were still on for tonight. Oh, no. No, all you have to bring is your handsome self. Oh. Champagne? Oh, well, sure. Champagne is always appropriate. Ta-ta. Hmm. Champagne always makes me do the craziest things.

Cass: I'm so smart, aren't I?

Sam: Hey, promise me you'll get something to eat, all right?

Amanda: Only if you promise me you're going to get some rest.

Sam: Ok. I will if you will.

Amanda: Ok, it's a deal. Uh, look, I know I can't pressure you into doing anything --

Sam: But?

Amanda: But I just think that you should consider what Felicia was trying to say to you.

Sam: Sure.

Amanda: Your work is good. You just need to be seen, that's all.

Sam: Yeah, right.

Amanda: Ok, I'll shut up. Think about it. I'm sure it'll work out. Bye. Au revoir, ladies.

Sam: Amanda?

Amanda: Yeah?

Sam: Nothing. Don't worry about it.

Amanda: You sure?

Sam: Yeah, positive.

Amanda: Ok. I'll be back soon.

Sam: Nothing at all.

Amanda: Hey, you look like you should be admitted.

Jamie: Hi. How you doing, honey?

Amanda: Hi. You want to tell me what's wrong?

Jamie: Nothing. I'm fine.

Amanda: You may be a great doctor, but you're a lousy liar.

Jamie: It's Lisa.

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Jamie: She hasn't written me since she left.

Amanda: Maybe she isn't a letter writer.

Jamie: She wrote Adam.

Amanda: I see.

Jamie: What do you mean, "I see"?

Amanda: Um, it's just -- it's complicated.

Jamie: Well, don't expect to back out now. Tell me.

Amanda: It's just that she and Adam may be a little closer than anyone knew.

Jamie: This doesn't sound like a wild supposition on your part.

Amanda: No. They were kissing. I didn't know if I should tell you or not.

Jamie: You saw them?

Amanda: No, not exactly.

Jamie: What, they called you and told you?

Amanda: No, Vicky told me. She said that she overheard --

Jamie: Vicky told you? Oh!

Amanda: Right.

Jamie: Oh, well, isn't that interesting? I suppose you had to pry the information out of her, too, huh?

Amanda: She didn't want to tell me, but --

Jamie: Of course not. She wanted you to tell me. You know, I think somebody ought to tell her exactly where -- where to go. And I think I'm just the man for the job, too.

Nicole's voice: Now, wait a minute. You're having dinner with a very handsome and attentive man. You're a fool if you let a cod like Cass ruin it. What about us, Cass? Are we off the ground?

Cass' voice: I think maybe you should ask yourself that.

Nicole's voice: You're jealous.

Cass' voice: Oh, be serious.

Nicole's voice: No, you are.

Cass' voice: That's petty.

Nicole's voice: No, it isn't.

Cass: And if you say that you think it's sweet, I'm going --

Nicole: No, it's not sweet, and it's not necessary.

Cass: And it's not the problem.

Nicole: Well, Cass, then what is?

Cass: There isn't any except the one that you're creating!

Nicole's voice: I'm looking forward to this evening. I'm happy, very happy.

Cass' voice: You're just doing this to spite me, not because you want to.

Nicole: Oh, you're back.

Cass: Yeah, I left my briefcase. So, what are you having tonight?

Nicole: Coq au vin, if it's any of your business.

Cass: Is that what I smell burning?

Nicole: No.

Cass: Coq au vin. I hope he chokes on the wishbone.

["James Bond" theme plays]

Nicole: There's nothing burning. I'm having it catered.

Cass: Oh, I'm sorry.

Nicole: Well? You've got your briefcase.

Cass: Yes, I do. I've got my briefcase. Don't catch cold.

Nicole: Goodbye.

Cass: Yes. You two kids have fun.

Nicole: Well, I'm chilly, that's all.

Jamie: What are you doing here? Waiting for more orders from Jason?

Vicky: Jamie, I was just writing a note.

Jamie: That's good, Vicky. That's real quick!

Vicky: I am telling you the truth.

Jamie: Oh, is that right? Good old upfront, honest Vicky..

Vicky: Jamie, why are you acting like this?

Jamie: Oh, you're surprised, are you? You didn't come to me and tell me your dirty little story. No, you go to Amanda so she can tell me.

Vicky: You found out about Adam and Lisa.

Jamie: You lied to Amanda!

Vicky: Is that what you think? You think I would make up something like that, Jamie?

Jamie: That's exactly what I think!

Vicky: Well, you're wrong. Dead wrong. And if you don't believe me, why don't you go ask Adam because I'm sure Adam will --

Jamie: Liar!

Vicky: You just think Lisa is so sweet and innocent and nice and all that.

Jamie: I'm not going to talk to you about Lisa.

Vicky: Obviously. Because Lisa goes and kisses Adam, and you're mad at me.

Jamie: You got her to leave town, didn't you?

Vicky: You're crazy, Jamie. Now, I admit I've done some things to get closer to you, and I'm glad that Lisa's out of town, very glad because you mean something to me. But I didn't drive her out of town, Jamie.. She did that because she was scared.

Jamie: Oh, Vicky!

Vicky: But I'm not scared! I wanted you, so I fought for you. But I just never do anything right, do I? I mean, is it only the Marleys and Lisas that do things right, but not me?

Jamie: I told you to back off.

Vicky: You don't understand, do you? I want you, Jamie.

Jamie: Stop it, Vicky. Stop it.

Vicky: Don't you even want to know what it's like?

Jamie: Know what?

Vicky: To be with someone who wants you more than anything in this world? No, of course not. You've got Lisa. Lisa, who says she loves you but goes and kisses Adam!

Jamie: Shut up.

Vicky: And who says it ended with a kiss, huh?

Jamie: Shut up!

Vicky: Maybe they've been making it all this time, Jamie.

Jamie: Bitch!

Vicky: Oh!

Bianca: Well, that's --

Mac: So if I can just get these business things straightened out, I can get over here more often.

Sam: Mac, don't worry about me. I'm fine.

Rachel: How are you feeling, Sam?

Sam: Better.

Rachel: Good.

Amanda: In fact, Felicia came over today, didn't she?

Sam: Amanda, she's just feeling sorry for me, ok?

Amanda: That is not true.

Rachel: What's this all about?

Amanda: Felicia wants to commission Sam for some paintings at Tops.

Rachel: That's wonderful.

Mac: Yeah, Tops can use a little livening up.

Sam: Oh, I'm not so sure about that.

Amanda: I think you should think about it.

Sam: Ok. When I get home, all right?

Mac: Do you have any idea when that'll be?

Sam: Yeah. Tomorrow.

Mac: Really?

Amanda: What?

Sam: Yeah, the resident was here while you were gone. He said I can go home tomorrow.

Mac: That's wonderful, Sam.

Rachel: Great.

Amanda: That's great! Just wait till you get home and see all your painting things again -- your canvas, your brushes. There's no way you're going to refuse this commission.

Rachel: Well, as soon as he feels well enough to paint.

Amanda: Well, sure. It's just a matter of time, though. Right?

Sam: Right. Right..

Nicole: Oh, Drew, this is great champagne. Is this the same kind --

Drew: I thought you'd remember. I'm glad you did.

Nicole: That little vineyard?

Drew: Mm-hmm. Remember? You said you were sick of the city, so we jumped in my sports car, left Paris behind. We drove deep, deep into the countryside.

Nicole: Hmm, with no place to stay.

Drew: Except we found a little vineyard that had that wonderful manor house with one room to rent.

Nicole: And it was vacant that night.

Drew: Happiest night of my life. Countryside, the room, champagne breakfast, and you, Nicole.

Cass: I may throw up.

Nicole: Was it really the happiest night of your life?

Cass: Oh, come on, Nicole! Don't fall for his garbage!

Drew: Happiest night so far. Except --

Nicole: What?

Drew: Except tonight.

Cass: I am going to throw up. I'm going to nail this guy.

Vicky: Don't stop now, Jamie.

Jamie: Vicky --

Vicky: Don't say no. Don't turn me away now.
