Vicky: Oh, do you want this? Do you want this one? I knew these party favors would come in handy sometime. We're going to use these until we get some real toys for you, right?

Adam: Yeah, knowing you, you'll buy the whole store out.

Vicky: Hey, why not? This little guy deserves the best!

[Mikey babbles]

Adam: You know, you never stop to surprise me.

Vicky: Why is that? Because I can keep this 2-year-old from crying, huh?

Adam: No, because you took him in, because you took on the whole child welfare agency just to protect him.

Vicky: I know. I was really lucky that they gave me custody so soon after I asked, wasn't I?

[Mikey babbles]

Adam: Why are you doing this?

Vicky: Because I didn't want the agency to take him away.

[Vicky laughs]

Adam: I see.

Vicky: What, you don't believe me?

Adam: No, I do. I do. I just don't think that's the whole story. I think there's another reason that you're taking Mikey in, and I think we both know what his name is.

Sam: Will you guys stop? I'm fine!

Rachel: Take it easy.

Sam: I'm fine. Will you relax?

Rachel: Here you are -- you're home!

Amanda: I don't think there's anything wrong with us babying you a little bit.

Rachel: Right.

Sam: Mitch, help me with these two people.

Mitch: Don't look at me. I'm just carrying your luggage. As a matter of fact, the next time you're in the hospital, you might want to travel a bit lighter.

Sam: Thanks, Mitch. I'll keep that in mind, yeah.

Rachel: Ok, careful, it's a long way down.

Amanda: Ok.

Rachel: Here you go.

Amanda: Did you tell your brother the good news?

Mitch: What news?

Sam: Oh. Felicia commissioned a couple of paintings for Tops.

Mitch: That's great.

Sam: No, it's not. She's doing it just for charity's sake.

Mitch: What are you talking about? She wouldn't do that for charity. If she didn't like something, she wouldn't put it in there. She wouldn't do that for you or anybody else.

Amanda: You tell him, Mitch.

Rachel: Well, I, for one, am grateful that you have given up cab driving and gone back to painting.

Mitch: Me, too. I second that.

Sam: Picasso doesn't have too much to worry about, at least for a couple of days. It's going to take me that long to stay on my feet long enough to paint.

Rachel: Well, we sort of thought of that, didn't we?

Amanda: Yes, we did. And that's why we got you this.

Sam: What's this?

Amanda: Sketching pad.

Rachel: Ta-da!

Amanda: So now you can work on your preliminary sketches for the Tops commission without even having to move. Go for it.

Cass: Are you sure?

Michael: Yeah. My sources say Drew Marsden got into town about a half an hour ago.

Cass: He's being followed?

Michael: Closer than Sean Penn. by "the National Intruder."

Cass: Well, good. Then we'll soon have proof that Drew is the frontman for the takeover.

Michael: Well, I hope so.


Michael: I hear the girls coming.

[Cass whistles]

Donna: Aha! I thought I recognized that voice.

Michael: Oh, really?

Donna: Hello. Here. Oh, you're not going to believe my dress, Michael. Oh, it's gorgeous.

Michael: Is it?

Nicole: Oh, and she looks beautiful in it.

Michael: Not any more beautiful than you could look right now.

Donna: Oh, gosh, I love that man.

Nicole: Can we clone him?

Cass: Now, what do you say, you guys? Should we get this show on the road?

Michael: Sure. Let's go. I just got to kiss my ex goodbye first.

Donna: Oh.

Michael: See you later.

Donna: Yeah.

Amanda: Matthew.

Rachel: Hi, sweetie.

Matthew: Hey, is that all I get for a hello?

Amanda: What did you want?

Matthew: Well, how about, "man, I have been dying to see you, bro." Or, "Matthew, you've made my day."

Sam: Matthew, you've made my day.

Amanda: There you go.

Matthew: [Western accent] I detect a little insincerity there, Sammy.

Rachel: I'm glad to see you.

Mitch: Me, too.

Matthew: [Normal voice] actually, guys, I didn't come alone. I came bearing gifts. Well, one gift, actually.

Amanda: What's that? "101 bad jokes"?

Matthew: Yeah. I read in this article last month that said when you're sick, you should laugh yourself back into health. It's been proven scientifically, so --

Rachel: Well, that's great!

Amanda: Go ahead, Sam. Why don't you read us one? Laugh yourself to total health.

Rachel: Right, come on.

Sam: No, that's ok.

Rachel: Oh, come on.

Matthew: Come on.

Amanda: Come on, just one.

Sam: Oh, God -- all right, I'll make you a deal.

Rachel: Hmm?

Sam: Amanda, if you read it, I won't see the punch line and I'll laugh myself silly.

Amanda: Ok. Here.

Rachel: That's a good idea.

Sam: What?

Amanda: For you. Ok.

Sam: Oh, please -- yuck.

Amanda: Here's one.

Rachel: Hmm?

Amanda: "What's the biggest pencil in the world?"

Rachel: What?

Amanda: "Pennsylvania."

[Matthew laughs]

Sam: I feel better already.

Mitch: Gee, I feel -- I'm feeling a little better myself.

Amanda: Well, maybe if I try another one, it'll be better.

Rachel: Well, yeah, maybe you should try the punch line first. It might be funnier.

Sam: It's worth a try.

Amanda: If I get the punch line --

Mitch: It's good to see you have a laugh.

Matthew: Yeah. Yeah -- I'm aces, great, super.

Mitch: Everything's ok? Nothing's bothering you, like what happened at school?

[Amanda laughs]

Matthew: Sort of.

Mitch: What do you mean, "sort of"?

Matthew: Yeah, it is bothering me.

Mitch: You know, I really wish you would open up about this. I mean, it's about to get to me.

Matthew: I know it is, and I want to tell you everything. And I know how much trouble I've been putting you through.

Mitch: Well, look, why don't we get your Mom and --

Matthew: No, no, no.

Mitch: But you just got through saying --

Matthew: Look, I'll talk to you, ok? But not Mom. Not now.

Mitch: Why don't we go take a walk.

Matthew: Ok.

Mitch: We'll be right back. We're going to go out.

Rachel: Ok.

Amanda: Ok.

Sam: Bye.

[Mikey babbles]

Vicky: What was that wisecrack supposed to mean?

Adam: Jamie. Imagine how impressed he'll be when he finds out that you have taken in a homeless child.

Vicky: Ok.. You escorted us home. Thank you.

Adam: Just doing my job, miss..

Vicky: Yeah, well, it's done. We're home, we're safe. Goodbye.

Adam: I'm on to you, Vicky.

Vicky: No, Adam. No, I don't think you are.

Adam: Enlighten me.

[Mikey babbles]

Vicky: Ok. First of all, Jamie doesn't have the slightest idea that I even have Mikey.

Adam: Not yet.

Vicky: And so what if he does? It's not going to change our friendship. Did it ever occur to you that I might want Mikey just because I don't want him to suffer? No. No, I guess it didn't. You wouldn't know anything about suffering, would you, now, Adam? You've always had the Cory's little silver spoon in your mouth.

Adam: No, I think that's where you're mixed up. You see, I'm just a policeman, and a poorly paid one at that. You're the one who owns half of Bay City.

Vicky: Yeah. Well, I didn't grow up here! I grew up in a dump! I didn't have a father, Adam. I didn't have a mother. I had Bridget, and she was wonderful, but my life was miserable.

[Mikey babbles]

Vicky: I grew up lonely and poor. And I also thought the whole time that my own family didn't even care about me. That's the worst feeling any child can ever grow up with. And I'm not going to have Mikey grow up with those feelings, ok?

[Mikey babbles]

Adam: Maybe I was wrong.

Vicky: Maybe you were?

Adam: I'm sorry.

Vicky: Oh.

Adam: Look, Vicky, have you thought about what's going to happen after you lose temporary custody?

Vicky: I sure have. If the board decides to give me any trouble, I'll just have Scott write them a little letter saying -- reminding them how often they use Bay City General facilities.

Adam: Oh, I see. And since you own the hospital, they better lay off. Is that it?

Vicky: Yeah, that's it. I play hard when I want to win, Adam.

Adam: I've noticed that.

Vicky: You know, I think that I am the perfect candidate to take care of Mikey.

[Mikey babbles]

Vicky: Yes. In the morning, he'll have a nurse. Won't you? He'll have a nurse and everything else he needs. But right now, you need to get some sleep. Boo. You can show yourself out?

[Mikey babbles]

Adam: Vicky -- good luck with Mikey.

[Knock on door]

Adam: Amanda.

Amanda: Adam, what are you doing here?

Adam: I had some business here. How are you?

Amanda: I'm fine.

Adam: Listen, I heard you brought Sam home from the hospital. How's he doing?

Amanda: Much better.

Adam: Are you ok?

Amanda: I'm fine.

Adam: Are you sure?

Amanda: I'm here to see Vicky. Is she around?

Vicky: Oh --

Adam: She's right --

Vicky: Oh, hi, Amanda.

Amanda: Hi, Vicky. I didn't think you were going to have company.

Vicky: Oh, well, Adam was just on his way out. Weren't you, Adam?

Adam: Right. Vicky.

Vicky: Mm-hmm.

Adam: Amanda.

[Door closes]

Amanda: Just seeing him infuriates me.

Vicky: I know, but he's your cousin.

Amanda: Jamie is my brother. Ever since you told me that he kissed Lisa, I can't even stand to look at him.

Vicky: Amanda, calm down.

Amanda: I can't help it. It's the way I feel. How could anybody be so rotten to take advantage of the problems between my brother and Lisa?

Vicky: I don't know. Some people are just like that, I guess.

Amanda: Well, I think it's --

Vicky: Hey, hey, hey, what's in your bag?

Amanda: You know -- oh, gosh. He got me so flustered, I forgot why I came over. I was wondering if you could take this to the wedding for me.

Vicky: The wedding?

Amanda: What? What? What's the matter?

Vicky: Amanda, I can't go!

Mitch: It's really nice to get outside for a while. I thought we were going to try to be able to hash this out, but it doesn't seem like we've been able to do a lot of talking.

Matthew: I -- I want to. I want to tell you all about what's been going on.

Mitch: About Kevin?

Matthew: Yeah, everything. The whole reason why I was almost kicked out of school. And it's kind of tricky, Dad.

Mitch: Well, why don't you start at the beginning?

Matthew: It's not that easy. I made a choice a couple weeks ago not to involve you because it seemed the best thing for everybody who's concerned. I mean, I just want to know that I'm doing the right thing.

Mitch: I understand that, and I can see it's caused a lot of problems and it's caused a lot of anxiety in all of us.

Matthew: Yeah.

Mitch: But it's not getting any better by holding things in.

Matthew: Yeah, I know, I know.

Mitch: Of course, you know this means you're going to have to trust me?

Matthew: Dad, I trust you.

Mitch: Well, if you're going to trust me, then I've got to trust you. So why don't you just tell me what happened?

Amanda: You brought -- you brought Mikey home?

Vicky: Yeah, yeah. He's in the bedroom sleeping.

Amanda: Oh -- well, how's he doing?

Vicky: No, he's fine. I can't -- I can't believe I forgot about this wedding! Amanda, I was supposed to have left 15 minutes ago.

Amanda: Wait, wait, wait, it doesn't start for another hour. I know you can still make it.

Vicky: Are you kidding? I can't take Mikey.

Amanda: Why? Why not?

Vicky: Well, Donna just hasn't reacted too well --

Amanda: Because of the loss of her own baby.

Vicky: Yeah.

Amanda: Oh.

Vicky: I -- I guess I just can't go.

Amanda: Don't be ridiculous. I'll stay with him.. You go ahead and go.

Vicky: No, no, I don't think that's a good idea.

Amanda: No, really, believe me, I would love to do it. Besides, it'll give me a chance to practice being a Mom. We have plenty of toys over at the apartment for when my baby comes.

Vicky: Well, I --

[Mikey murmurs]

Vicky: Hey -- hey! Oh, you silly. That was a short nap, you crazy kid.

Amanda: I'm telling you, I am an absolute natural with kids. Here, watch. Come here.

Vicky: Who's this?

Amanda: Hi! Don't you want to spend some time with your Aunt Amanda?

Mikey: Hi!

Vicky: Oh, he's just been --

Amanda: Whoa!

Vicky: He's been passed around so much since he's come to the hospital, you know? I just -- well, you guys get along great.

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Vicky: So I'll go to the wedding. You know what? Hey, baby Mikey, when we come back, we'll do something really special, ok?

Amanda: Good. It's settled, then. Your parents would be really upset if you missed their wedding.

Vicky: I know. I couldn't miss it. Thank you. I'll go get ready. The wedding.

Amanda: Sure. Ok.

Vicky: Bye.

Amanda: Oh, hey, tell Jamie that I said hi. He's going to be best man, isn't he?

Vicky: Right.

Matthew: You see, Dad, Kevin is not exactly the average guy on campus. His family lives in the same town as the school, and he had to work his butt off to get the scholarship at school.

Mitch: I understand.

Matthew: And his sister Tracy works at the Red Lion.

Mitch: The -- the coffee shop at your school?

Matthew: Yeah, it's a local hangout for everybody at school. Anyway, she worked there. And she got along with everybody. She was great. She was really nice. And then one night Tad Benton offered to walk her home.

Mitch: Who's he?

Matthew: He's this jock type, president of the senior class. You know, no great mind to speak of, but he thinks he's a big shot.

Mitch: Ok, I get it. Go on.

Matthew: Anyway, he walked her up to Cobbler's bluff above school, supposedly as a shortcut to get Tracy home, but no. Uh-uh. It was a setup.

Mitch: A setup in that he tried something with her?

Matthew: Yeah, yeah. He wanted some action. He wanted some action.. He attacked her. Kevin and I were walking home from the movies, and we ran into him right there.

Mitch: Well, I'm sure Kevin was kind of upset to see what was going on.

Matthew: Kevin flipped out. He -- he went crazy. He went nuts! They started fighting, and they fought and -- Kevin just pushed him off the bluff.

Mitch: That's it? That's what happened?

Matthew: It was awful. Tad was lying down there. He's moaning. Tracy was -- Tracy was a mess. She -- she was crying all over the place. "Would you just take her home, all right? All right, ok? I'll -- I'll handle Tad. I'll get him a doctor. Don't worry."

Mitch: And that's all that happened?

Matthew: Yeah, yeah. Now, of course, the doctor called the dean.

Mitch: Yeah, I guess that's when he called your mother and me.

Matthew: Yeah, after I wouldn't tell him what happened.

Mitch: Well, why didn't you? I mean, it wasn't your fault. It wasn't Kevin's fault.

Matthew: Dad, I couldn't tell the dean about this. The whole campus, the whole town would know that Tad took Tracy up to Cobbler's bluff. And nobody would've believed Tracy, even with me and Kevin backing her. I mean, you know how everybody feels about the townie girls. It just wouldn't have worked. And you should've seen how devastated she was by the whole situation. I mean, it would've killed her. It would've killed Kevin if I had said anything about the situation.

Mitch: I hope you're not thinking of letting Tad have his way with this.

Matthew: No, he hasn't. He -- he told the dean he doesn't remember anything about the situation because he fell.

Mitch: But he does remember?

Matthew: Yeah, well, of course he remembers. And he's been after Kevin and me the whole time. And he gets his friends to get after us. And he has a lot of friends, Dad. And I just thought after I'd left, everything would cool down. Well, it hasn't. They trashed Kevin's room the other day. And Kevin wanted to go after him, but -- I mean, that's crazy. I had to stop him. That's why I brought him to Bay City.

Mitch: Ok, ok, we need to do something here. First we're going to have a conference with your Mom.

Matthew: Wait, wait, wait. You can't tell Mom about this.

Mitch: I'm not going to tell her anything. It's your responsibility. I think you should. You know she can be of help.

Matthew: All right. All right, I'll think about it.

Mitch: Good.

Matthew: Dad -- thanks a lot.

Donna: So, what do you think?

John: I think it's a beautiful place to have a wedding.

Donna: Yeah.

John: Of course, the bride and groom deserve the very best.

Donna: Thank you. So, how are you?

John: Oh, great, great. You ready for today?

Donna: Yes, yes, I'm ready. Actually, I don't know. I mean, I may not be able to get into my wedding dress. I gained two pounds this week.

John: Two pounds?

Donna: I know.

John: You gained two pounds?

Donna: Hmm.

John: Oh, I see, that's -- I'm just kidding. You look beautiful.

Donna: Would you stop.

John: You look beautiful.

Donna: Thanks. Listen, John, I'm really sorry, again, about the best man thing.

John: Oh, come on, Donna. Don't worry about it.

Donna: No, no, no, I do worry. I mean, I interfered in the whole thing, and -- I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm sorry I did because I really wish you were going to be that best man today.

John: Hey, come on. This is your wedding day. Your job is to enjoy it like the rest of us, ok?

Donna: Ok, and thanks.

John: No problem. Anything else?

Donna: Yes, as a matter of fact. You could escort me back to the house, if you would.

John: Escort you back to the house? Well, ma'am --

[Donna laughs]

John: I'd consider it an honor, a pleasure --

Donna: Thank you very much.

John: Not to say a sheer delight.

Donna: Go on, go on.

John: Go on? Let's see -- a pure joy.

Nicole: Hi.

Cass: Hi.

Nicole: So, does everything meet with your approval?

Cass: You've done a wonderful job.

Nicole: Thank you. Boy, you look very handsome.

Cass: Must be the light. You look very beautiful.

Nicole: Oh. It's the light.

Cass: Sure. So, how was your dinner date with Drewski?

Nicole: Oh, Cass.

Cass: Merely curious.

Nicole: Be honest.

Cass: I am. I was just wondering what it was like to have a slimy, underhanded snake in the grass for a dinner companion.

Nicole: Oh, Cass.

Cass: I mean, did you have to feed him, or was he able to scarf down his food with his fangs?

Nicole: Would you stop it?

Cass: What?

Nicole: Your comments. I don't want to play verbal tennis this afternoon. I don't want us to fight. And most of all, I don't want Drew to be a topic of conversation today, ok?

Cass: I guess I don't, either.

Nicole: All right. Come here. It's so lovely here, isn't it? It's such a wonderful day for Donna and Michael to get married.

Cass: And what?

Nicole: And I'm happy because I'm talking to a man I really care about.

Cass: I really care about you, too.

Nicole: Yeah?

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: How much?

Cass: Oh --

[Nicole giggles]

Cass: A lot.

Nicole: Yeah. I knew there was a reason I loved weddings so much.

[Knock on door]

Rachel: Amanda.

Amanda: What? Come in.

Mitch: I thought I'd come back and see how everybody was doing.

Rachel: Hi. Where's Matthew?

Amanda: Hi.

Mitch: He had some things to do. Well, how's the big guy?

Amanda: Oh, Mikey's doing great. You know, they say kids this age are the terrible twos. He's been wonderful. Of course, I only have to watch him until Vicky's done with the wedding, anyway.

Mitch: You got some nice toys, don't you?

Amanda: That reminds me. I think I left the diapers over at Vicky's place. I better go get them.

Sam: Well, hey -- why don't we take the kid back over to Vicky's? He needs to get used to his new digs.

Amanda: We? Are you sure you want to get up and around like that?

Sam: Amanda, I'm not an invalid, ok?

Amanda: All right. Ok. Sorry. Come on, let's go for a walk, all right?

Mikey: Right.

Amanda: Ok! Great. I'll take the guitar. We'll be back.

Sam: Bye.

Rachel: Ok.

Sam: See you.

Rachel: He's cute, isn't he?

Mitch: He's a nice kid.

Rachel: He reminds me of Matthew at the same age, only he's quieter, much quieter.

Mitch: I miss not seeing Matthew at that time. And, still, it's almost like sometimes I don't know him. I guess that's over.

Rachel: Doesn't have to be. You and Felicia could have a baby.

Mitch: Yeah, we could. Maybe we will.

Rachel: What about Matthew? Think your talk do any good?

Mitch: I hope so.

Rachel: I've got to know what's going on with him.

Mitch: Well, just give him some time.

Rachel: I have given him time.

Mitch: Just give him some more time. He'll open up soon.

Rachel: I hope so. He's my baby, you know.

Mitch: Yeah. I know.

[Strings play]

Nicole: This is such a special spot, Mrs. Hudson.

Clara: I've always thought so.

Cass: It's a wonderful day for a wedding.

Clara: Yes. Now, if only John could find someone as well.

Nicole: Oh, it would be nice.

John: What are you plotting now?

Clara: John. I'm so glad you've arrived. I never see enough of you.

John: Well, I'll be here throughout the entire day.

Michael: Hey, what do we have here, a family reunion? Hi, Mom. How are you? Hey, bro.

John: How are you?

Clara: My two sons. What a blessed afternoon. I couldn't ask for more.

Michael: Sure you could, Mom. What about some punch?

Clara: Oh. Ooh, but I would like to talk to Donna for just a moment before the wedding.

Michael: You would, would you? Tell you what, then. I'll walk you to the house, and I promise not to peek at the dress. Right this way. See you later.

Cass: Bye.

Nicole: Bye. Vicky, where have you been?

Vicky: It's a long story. I'll explain later. Is she --

Nicole: No, not yet, but it shouldn't be long.

Cass: Wait a second. What's going on here?

Nicole: Oh, just a surprise that Vicky and I arranged for the newlyweds. Oh, speaking of which, you know, I should see if Donna got into her dress all right.

Vicky: Oh, yeah.

Nicole: I should go change myself. Do you want to walk me over?

Cass: I'd love to. Can I help?

Nicole: We'll see.

Cass: See you later.

Nicole: See you later, Vicky.

Vicky: Bye. Great day for a wedding, isn't it?

John: Great one, yeah.

Vicky: Seen Jamie?

John: I talked to him on the phone. He said that he would be a little bit late, but he'll be here.

Vicky: I think this worked out just great, don't you? Cass giving Mom away, and Jamie the best man -- I think it's a perfect arrangement.

John: Vicky, you think we could just drop the hostility? I really don't want to argue with you. Maybe we could just call a truce. What do you think?

Vicky: A truce? Just for Mom and Dad, for the wedding. Wedding.

Vicky: Well, well, well, Lisa decided to take me up on my invitation.

Lisa: Not yours.

Vicky: Jamie's?

Lisa: Adam.

Vicky: Oh, of course. Excuse me.

Lisa: Just a second, Vicky. There's something I want to settle with you, and I want to do it now.

Vicky: I don't have time.

Lisa: Tough.

Vicky: Lisa, you're not going to cause a scene at my parents' wedding, are you?

Lisa: As if you're concerned. Vicky, I know you don't have a feeling inside for anyone but yourself.

Vicky: Oh, and Jamie. Don't forget Jamie, Lisa.

Lisa: Oh, yes, Jamie. You know, he's going to get sick of you. He doesn't like people who play games.

Vicky: Games? If you think him being the best man is a game --

Lisa: I was at the farm earlier. I was looking for Jamie.

Vicky: Oh. And?

Lisa: I know you slept with him.

Vicky: You're becoming a regular snoop, aren't you, Lisa?

Lisa: I did a lot of thinking while I was away, and I came to a few conclusions.

Vicky: Which, no doubt, you're going to share with me.

Lisa: I'm not giving Jamie up. We belong together, and that's the way it's going to be.

Vicky: Prediction?

Lisa: No, that's a fact.

Vicky: What do you base that statement on?

Lisa: I love Jamie.

Vicky: Who do you love, Lisa?

Lisa: What's that supposed to mean?

Vicky: I've learned a few things while you were away myself. You're not so innocent when it comes to Jamie. Just enjoy the wedding -- with Adam.

Lisa: One more thing --

Vicky: What's that?

Lisa: I can play as tough as you. And I have a few abilities that you're no match for.

Mitch: I'm glad to see that you're starting to, well, be able to go back to work.

Sam: Yeah, me too. Look, Mitch, there's a favor I wanted to ask you.

Mitch: Name it.

Sam: You know Amanda starts her Lamaze class next week.

Mitch: Right..

Sam: I was wondering if you could fill in for me for the first couple of classes, just till I'm on my feet again.

Mitch: Sam --

Sam: Look, you know, if you can't do it, I understand.

Mitch: No, I don't mind doing it. I'd like to do it. I just think Amanda might want to, you know, decide who she wants to help her.

Sam: I haven't really asked her yet.

Mitch: Don't you think she's going to want to decide who she wants as a coach?

Sam: Yeah. I guess so. I guess I just hate the idea of somebody else being there besides me.

Mitch: Well, I mean, it's only going to be one or two times you're going to miss at the most.

Sam: Yeah.

[Bell rings]

Mitch: What's that?

Sam: That is a timer telling me that I need to take my medicine.

Mitch: Let me guess -- Amanda's idea.

Sam: Yeah. Who else?

Mitch: Well, she's very well-organized.

Sam: Yeah, well, one of us has to be.

Mitch: Here you go. Bottoms up.

Sam: Thanks.

Michael: Hey, beautiful.

Donna: Oh. Well, hello, handsome. Say, would you like to spend some time together?

Michael: I don't know. It depends on how much time.

Donna: Oh, 30, 40 years?

Michael: I don't have that much time. I'm getting married this afternoon.

Donna: Oh. Well, whose guy are you?

Michael: I'm Donna's guy.

Donna: My goodness, she must be a very lucky girl.

Michael: She's a very beautiful girl.

Donna: You know, I just -- you know, I really should be upset. I mean, you seeing me in this dress before the wedding --

Michael: Well, hey --

Donna: Actually --

Michael: Donna, the wedding is going to start in a couple minutes, all right?

Donna: Oh, you. What? What are you looking at me that way for?

Michael: I don't know. I was just thinking about the first time I met you at that stables.

Donna: That was such a long time ago.

Michael: It was, and we both looked just a little bit different. But I got to tell you, I think falling in love with you is the smartest thing I ever did.

Nicole: Hey, you two, what's going on out here? No hanky-panky before the ceremony.

Michael: Really?

Donna: We weren't.

Michael: Look, when is this ceremony going to start? It's running a little late -- 10 minutes.

Vicky: We know we're a little late, but it's because we have a gift for both of you.

Donna: Oh, no, no, no. You shouldn't have done that.

Michael: Sure, she should have.

Nicole: Well, then, never mind.

Donna: No, no, no, wait, wait. That's all right, that's all right. What is it?

Vicky: Take a look.

Marley: Mom? Dad?

Donna: Marley! Oh!

Marley: Hi!

Donna: I don't believe it.

Marley: Oh, congratulations.

Donna: Oh! Ooh!

[Strings play]

Lisa: Adam, you didn't tell me this was just family.

Adam: I didn't know.

[Strings play "here comes the bride"]

Father Corcoran: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today before God and man to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony.

Mitch: What's going on?

Sam: Nothing, man. The glass just slipped, you know.

Mitch: Don't lie to me. What's the matter?

Sam: Well, I'm having some problems.

Mitch: What kind of problems?

Sam: Problems seeing. Sometimes my vision is fuzzy, you know? A lot of the time.

Mitch: Is that why you weren't sketching today? Is that why you didn't read?

Sam: Yeah.

Mitch: What did the doctor say?

Sam: I haven't told the doctors yet.

Mitch: What?

Sam: Look, Mitch, I don't want Amanda to worry about this, all right?

Mitch: Look, are you crazy? I mean, this could be very serious. You could --

Sam: Yeah. I could be going blind, I know..

Mitch: Well, then, you need to go see a doctor.

Sam: Mitch, I'd like to have a chance to get my head straight about this, ok? I mean, what if this is serious? What if I am going blind, you know? What am I going to do? Not a word to Amanda, ok?

Amanda: Hi. We just thought that we'd come over and see what you guys are up to.

Mitch: Well, we were just --

Sam: We're just discussing who's going to substitute for me for a few of the Lamaze classes.

Mitch: Hi there, big guy.

Amanda: Oh, don't be silly. You're not going to have to substitute anybody because I'm going to make sure that you get well..

Mitch: That's right. You're going to have to be ready for this, now.

Sam: Yeah. Mitch, don't you have a shoot today?

Mitch: Yeah. As a matter of fact, I'm running late. If there's anything I can do, Amanda, just let me know and I'll help out.

Amanda: You got it. Hi.

Mitch: Sam --

Sam: Yeah?

Mitch: I'll talk to you later.

Sam: Great.

Father Corcoran: In the beginning, God made them. Male and female, he made them. For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife. And the two shall become one.

Singer: Well a man shall leave his mother and a woman leave her home they shall travel on to where the two shall be as one as it was in the beginning is now until the end woman draws her life from man and gives it back again and there is love

[wedding march plays]

Father Corcoran: And now Michael and Donna will profess their own vows of love.

Amanda: I hope he didn't wear you out.

Sam: No.

Amanda: Oh, that's right. I forgot. You're a tough guy. What's wrong?

Sam: Nothing. I was just thinking about our own baby.

Amanda: Hmm. I think it's going to be a boy.

Sam: No, it's going to be a girl.

Amanda: You think so?

Sam: Yeah, I know so.

Amanda: How?

Sam: Come on, Amanda. Everybody knows that if your left shoulder is higher than your right shoulder, it's going to be a girl.

Amanda: What? My shoulders are perfectly even.

Sam: Yeah, you're right. Twins.

Amanda: Don't even joke about that. In any event, it's going to be soon.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: I can't wait to see you. You're going to make a great father. Especially when you start to teach him how to paint.

Sam: Yeah. I'm looking forward to that, too.

Amanda: You sound so serious.

Sam: Sorry. I didn't mean to be. There's just so much that I want to do with our child that I never had a chance to do with my Dad.

Amanda: You will.

Matthew: So, that's the whole story. I never told anybody what happened until today. Now just you and Dad know what really happened.

Rachel: All this time, you've been keeping a lot inside.

Matthew: Yeah, and I'm sorry. I apologize. I know you've been worried a lot about me.

Rachel: Well, I'm glad it wasn't you that started the fight, and I'm glad you tried to help your friend. But mostly I'm glad that you thought you could tell me about it.

Matthew: Me, too. Now, I kind of feel relieved now that I got it all off my chest, you know.

Rachel: Good.

Matthew: Thanks.

Rachel: Well, let's handle it.

Matthew: Who are you calling?

Rachel: The Police.

Matthew: No, Mom!

Michael: Well, I guess nothing has come easy to us over the years, but it always seems to have been worth it. Third time's the charm. I'm so glad that you're standing here with me today. We've been through a lot together. But what fills me with the most hope is that we've gone through it and come out the other side, and I think better for it. I love you more now than I did then. I like getting married in this place, on this farm, my home. When I grew up here, I spent hours as a child just dreaming of a better life, of a peaceful life someday when I grew up. I pledge my life to you, Donna. I want you to be my companion, to be my friend, and I promise you I will always honor your love.

Donna: You know, it wasn't too awfully long ago that I was very near, watching you plant this tree in the memory of our son. And I wanted so much to come out and comfort you. And I'm sorry, sweetheart. I just wasn't ready. But today I have your strength, and I think about all the wonderful, joyous things that we're going to be able to do. Actually, I think what I really want to say is that I love you, Michael Hudson. I have always loved you, and you are the only man that I have ever wanted to share my life with. You see, all I have to do is look at our two beautiful daughters, and I am reminded of our deep and perfect love that we'll always have. And now I, too, am going to be able to come back to this spot and remember this very special day. And I want us to bring our grandchildren -- at least we better have some grandchildren -- back here, and I want them to see this tree -- how high it's grown and how strong it's grown. And I want us to tell them that its roots are our lives and all our dreams, and that its branches, as they reach ever skyward, are a symbol of our love forever and always.

Father Corcoran: In the presence of God and all your family and friends, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride!

Donna: Yes.

Father Corcoran: I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hudson.

Donna: Yay!
