Marley: Jake. You scared me.

Jake: I'm sorry.

Marley: It's ok. If you're looking for Vicky, she's not here. I just wrote her a note. I don't know where she is.

Jake: I was looking for you.

Marley: Oh. Well, here I am.

Jake: Can I come in? I need to talk to you.

Marley: Actually, I was just on my way out the door. Michael and Donna are coming home tomorrow, and Iíve got a lot of errands to run, so --

Jake: You cannot run away from me forever.

Marley: I'm not running away.

Jake: Then why haven't we spent more than five minutes together since I got here? You're my wife. You didn't used to do that.

Marley: A lot has changed.

Jake: So running your errands is more important than finding out why?

Marley: You know why!

Jake: Fine. I'm sorry I bothered you. I wouldn't want to hold you up.

Marley: All right, Jake. What is it that you have to say?

Mary: Well, it looks like the builder of the hospice wing will be -- Frame Construction.

John: Mary, don't kid with me about stuff like that.

Mary: The contract.

John: Oh. I see what you've done. You actually went to all the trouble to phony up a contract just so that you could watch me sign it --

Mary: John!

John: And laugh in my face, didn't you?

Mary: John, you got it, you and your men. The board voted unanimously to give you the contract.

John: Something went right?

Mary: Something went right!

John: Mary, I don't know how to take good news.

Mary: Oh, well, let's see -- in my experience, typically when confronted with good news, human beings usually smile and say things like "goody."

John: Do they ever do this, huh?

[Mary laughs]

Mary: You bet, john!

John: Oh, oh, oh!

Mary: Congratulations.

John: Thank you, really.

Mary: You and your men deserve it.

John: I can't wait to tell them -- or Jason.

Mary: Did he tell you why he wasn't at the board meeting?

John: Tell me? I haven't even laid eyes on him.

Mary: You haven't seen him since yesterday?

John: No, he probably went out and tied one on and now is nursing the worst hangover known to man -- at least I hope he is.

Ronnie: Mr. Frame?

Jason: What? How is he?

Ronnie: He's ok. I just checked in on Mikey. Look, he's asleep and all of his vital signs look good. Why don't you go home and get some sleep?

Jason: No, I promised Vicky Iíd stay.

Ronnie: Look, that little boy is going to sleep like a log for at least six hours. Why don't you try the same thing. Or should I kick you out?

Jason: Get rough like that, I might stay.

[Ronnie chuckles]

Jason: Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I will leave on one condition --

Ronnie: Look, look, don't --

Jason: You call me the second he wakes up.

Ronnie: Ok, don't worry. We'll call.

Jason: Ok.

Ronnie: Ok?

Jason: Thanks.

Ronnie: Go home.

Jason: Yeah.

Ronnie: Anything I can do for you?

Ada: No, Ronnie. Thank you very much, no.

Ronnie: I know the waiting can be tough.

Matt: Grandma, hi. How you doing?

Ada: Where have you been?

Matt: We -- I had to go back to school to settle something.

Ada: To school? To Winston? Wonderful.

Matt: Yeah, grandma. I was just --

Ada: Mac and your mother have been worried sick about you. Mac's been calling all over for you.

Matt: I'm sorry. Did you tell them anything?

Ada: What was I supposed to tell them -- that you ran out of here with a wild look in your eye to do something "important"?

Matt: Well, thanks. I appreciate it.

Ada: Don't thank me. I'm not protecting you. Mac and your mother have enough on their minds right now.

Matt: With Sam? Sam --

Ada: Yes, Sam. Who else?

Jamie: Now, Sam, the important thing is not to panic. There could be swelling from the surgery, but temporary blindness is not uncommon.

Sam: Amanda, are you -- are you here?

Amanda: Sam, Iím --

Felicia: What --

Jamie: Amanda!

Rachel: Amanda! Honey, are you all right?

Jamie: Get her outside. Here.

Sam: Jamie --

Jamie: Stay here -- it's ok, Sam. Take it easy.

Sam: Where's --

Jamie: Mitch, stay here with Sam.

Sam: Jamie!

Mac: Just take it easy.

Rachel: You all right?

Amanda: Yeah.

Mac: You ok?

Amanda: Yeah, he -- he called for me and I -- I couldn't move.

Jamie: Ronnie --

Rachel: It's all right, sweetie. Come on. Let's sit down.

Mac: You can't do any more right now.

Jamie: Listen, why don't you call ob-gyn? I want somebody to take a look at my sister.

Ronnie: Problem?

Jamie: Well, it's not serious, but I want her looked at. Have them do a hemoglobin.

Ronnie: Right away.

Jamie: Weren't you here last night? How long have you been on duty, anyway?

Ronnie: A couple of years, at least.

[Jamie chuckles]

Jamie: Thanks, Ronnie.

Amanda: He asked for me, and I couldn't even -- I have to go to him. I have to go to him.

Mac: Amanda, please --

Amanda: I have to --

Mac: Jamie?

Rachel: You have to sit.

Amanda: I've got to go in there.

Jamie: Listen, why don't we calm down?

Amanda: Jamie!

Mac: She can't go on like this, Jamie.

Jamie: Sit down, sit down, ok? I just called ob-gyn.

Amanda: The baby? You think there's something wrong with the baby?

Jamie: No. No, I don't, but I think there's something wrong when you start fainting. When was the last time you had some sleep or something to eat?

Amanda: That doesn't matter now.

Jamie: Yes, it does. It's very important to you and your baby. Now, listen to me, Amanda. There's a good possibility that this is only temporary blindness as a result of the swelling.

Amanda: That doesn't matter. Don't you understand? Sam's in there, he can't see. He's scared. He's alone.

Rachel: He's not alone. Mitch is with him.

Amanda: I can't even help him.

Jamie: Because you're exhausted. Now, come on. We're going to have you checked over and we're going to have you get some rest.

Amanda: Oh, dad, I can't take this.

Mac: I know, darling. I know. Where is this room you want me to take her to?

Jamie: Third floor. There will be a nurse waiting for you.

Mac: Let's go, honey. Let's go up there. Come on.

Amanda: Will you tell Sam that Iím sorry?

Rachel: Darling, we have to make sure you and the baby are all right. He'll understand.

Amanda: Mom, would you stay with him, please?

Rachel: Yes, I will.

Mac: I'll let you know what they say.

Rachel: All right.

Ronnie: Maybe I should get a wheelchair.

Jamie: No, no. I think it's better that her father take her up there, but thanks.

Ronnie: Sure.

Felicia: Rachel. Hi. Is Amanda all right?

Rachel: She's exhausted and worried and pregnant.

Felicia: Yeah. You know, I left Mitch with Sam. I -- I don't know. I felt like I was a little bit in the way.

Rachel: Yeah, I know the feeling.

Felicia: You know, Jamie did say that this could be temporary when the swelling goes down.

Rachel: Oh. What difference does it make? Amanda's right. It doesn't make much difference, you know? You -- you can't see, you can't get your eyes to do what they're supposed to do, and you're all closed off with darkness and -- and it's just terrifying. Being told it's temporary just doesn't mean very much, you know? It's just terrifying.

Felicia: I know. Come on.

[Monitor beeps]

Sam: Hey, Mitch?

Mitch: I'm here.

Sam: I'm scared, man.

Mitch: I know you're scared.

Sam: I'm afraid that if I start talking, I'm going to start screaming.

Mitch: It's ok, it's ok. Whatever.

Sam: My eyes, man. Why did it have to be my eyes?

Mitch: I don't know. I don't know why'd it have to be you. I don't know.

[Door opens]

Rachel: Oh, I'm sorry. I'll come back.

Sam: No, it's ok, Rachel. Come on in.

Rachel: I'm not intruding?

Sam: No. Actually, it's better that you do. I'm not sure Mitch and I can handle this much openness in one sitting.

Rachel: Well, I -- I just want you to know that Amandaís fine. She would be in here now with you, but Jamie wants her to rest.

Sam: Yeah, I know. He already told me about it. It's better she's not in here, anyway.

Rachel: Well, that's not the reason she's not here.

Sam: I know that. See, this is happening to her, too. Rachel?

Rachel: What, honey?

Sam: Take care of her for me, ok?

Rachel: Sure. Mac is with her now.

Sam: Good.

Rachel: Well --

Rachel: Sam?

Sam: You know, don't you?

Rachel: What you're going through?

Sam: Yeah.

Rachel: Yes, darling, I know.

Ada: You went back to Winston to settle an old score?

Matt: No, to make sure this tad guy wouldn't do anything else.

Tracy: Mrs. Hobson, it was my fault. I went back, and Matt and Kevin followed me to make sure everything was ok.

Ada: And to deal with tad what's his face.

Matt: I wasn't just following her. I thought it was the right thing to do, so I did it!

Ada: Right for who?

Matt: Grandma, I know it sounds dumb, but this whole tad situation was screwing up everything. He was throwing the rocks, and then Sam in the -- I don't know what to say to you.

Ada: Well, you better think of something soon. You've got a lot of explaining to do.

Matt: I thought I could handle it without telling anybody about it.

Tracy: It was for me. He did it for me.

Matt: Yeah, and I screwed up everything -- mom and Mac, dad and Felicia.

Ada: And went back to Winston without telling anybody -- that was clever.

Matt: Grandma, as soon as it's the right time, I'm going to explain everything to them. It's -- I'm sick of this covering up.

Ada: The whole story?

Matt: The whole story.

[Ada sighs]

Matt: You think it's a bad idea, don't you?

Ada: I think it's about time. That's what I think.

Matt: Then why do you look so upset?

Ada: I'm thinking.

Matt: About what?

Ada: I'm trying to figure out a way to run interference for you. Oh, get out of here.

[Tracy chuckles]

Jake: I don't know how it got like this.

Marley: No?

Jake: You know what we sound like?

Marley: What?

Jake: We sound like all those married people that we said we were never going to be like.

Marley: Is that right?

Jake: These stupid fights, running around in circles --

Marley: This wasn't my idea!

Jake: You pulling away from me?

Marley: I can't help it.

Jake: Honey, don't you remember everything we went through to keep from touching each other, to keep from being together?

Marley: Don't do this.

Jake: We tried not to fall in love, and we couldn't manage it. Do you know why? Because the feeling was so strong.

Marley: And we thought we were going to be different than every other couple!

Jake: We are.

Marley: Really? From the beginning of time, the whole world has known that it's much more exciting to love what you can't love, just like Romeo and Juliet.

Jake: Don't say that.

Marley: Have you ever thought that maybe we were just playing parts, that I was the poor little rich girl in the ivory tower --

Jake: Stop it.

Marley: And you were the romantic stranger on the motorcycle?

Jake: I said stop it!

Marley: Or maybe I was just the biggest fool this world has ever seen, Jake.

Jake: You are wrong. Honey, you are wrong about everything. Come here.

[ Violin ]

Marley: This isn't the answer.

Jake: Marley, I love you.

Marley: Don't say that, Jake!

Jake: What?

Marley: This isn't right.

Jake: "I love you" -- that's not right? That's crazy. I love you, Marley. I want you.

Marley: Well, don't you think I want you?

Jake: It's pretty obvious that you don't.

Marley: Oh, no? I want you. I want you in the bed next to me at night, and I want to see the curve of your back. I want to feel the touch of your hands against me.

Jake: You're in the bed alone for no reason.

Marley: No. Sex does not solve anything.

Jake: We're not talking about sex. We're talking about love.

Marley: Well, sometimes I don't think you know the difference!

Jake: Why do you do this? Who are you to make up these rules -- sex, love? Who knows where one ends and the other one begins? Marley, I love you. You're my wife. Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?

Marley: You're not hearing what I have to say!

Jake: Then maybe it's time we shut up because talking doesn't seem to do much good.

Marley: Jake --

Jake: Marley, honey, I love you and I always will.

Singer: Lying in your arms when the world outside's too much to take

Marley: Jake --

Singer: That all ends when Iím with you even though there may be times it seems Iím far away never wonder where I am

Mary: Ok, now, you know I am not exactly the president of Jasonís fan club. I'm not even in Jasonís fan club --

John: Listen, Mary --

Mary: But in this -- what?

John: I'm glad that this happened because now Iíve got reason to break off from Jason and start off on my own.

Mary: John, you've got to listen to me.

[Intercom buzzes]

Mary: This is really important. Yes? Oh, I forgot. Ok, tell him Iíll be right there. Thanks. I've got to run out for two minutes, but you must stay here because I have to talk to you.

John: I'll be here.

Mary: Whoa! Speak of the devil.

Jason: Oh, Mary. Hi.

Mary: I'll be right back.

Jason: What? Mary!

John: Don't you look wonderful.

Jason: I didn't see you, John.

John: I'm surprised you can see anything at all.

Jason: Well, I'm sorry if Iím interrupting something --

John: Oh, no, no, no, you're not interrupting anything. We're just tickled pink to see you.

Jason: I'm sorry that I didn't --

John: Missed you at the board meeting yesterday, Jason. Of course, I know that people that are as important as you -- well, you got places to go, people to see, things to do. I mean, why waste your time on something as trivial as the future of our company or the men that work for us?

Jason: Sorry. Obviously, we didn't get the bid, did we?

John: And you seem real broken up about it.

Jason: There are other opportunities. There will always be new opportunities, John.

John: We got the bid, unanimously.

Jason: What? For real? I mean --

Great! Good work, man. John.

John: Boy, you are really -- you are really a piece of work, you know that? You come dragging in here looking like dog dinner, don't even ask what happened, say "good work, John." Where the hell were you? This was important!

Jason: Something important came up that I had to do.

John: Oh, I see. Is this how it's going to be when we start building the hospice? Some partnership we got here. You don't show up and then Iím supposed to be glad to do it on my own -- is that it?

Jason: John, I would've been here otherwise.

John: Yeah. I'm sure you would have. But you didn't even think to call, did you?

Mary: Ok, you guys, go to neutral corners.

Ronnie: Excuse me. Mr. Frame, Iím glad I caught you.

Jason: What?

Ronnie: I wanted to let you know that the results of Mikey's tests came back negative. When he wakes up, he should be ready to be released.

John: Mikey?

Ronnie: He'll be fine, really.

John: Well, what happened?

Ronnie: Oh, you don't know? Mr. Frame here saved his life. Now will you go home and get some sleep?

Jason: Thank you. Thank you for letting me know.

Ronnie: I have to get back to the floor.

John: All right, all right. Listen up because I'm only going to say this once -- the next time you're out saving a child's life, you don't have to tell me where you are.

Jason: Hey, I am proud of you. You got a unanimous vote?

John: Listen, you and I are going to be so busy from now on.

Jason: Wait a minute. You got to tell me -- I mean, you got to level with me. Do I really look like a dog's dinner?

John: Worse. Listen, I got to run. I'm going to go and tell the guys. Thanks, Mary.

Jason: I'll see you!

John: All right.

Jason: Unanimous?

Mary: Unanimous.

Jason: That's got to mean that you voted for us. I guess things are looking up.

Mary: I had promised John that I would go along with whatever the board decided. The board chose Frame Construction, so I kept my word.

Jason: You wouldn't have said that a couple days ago.

Mary: A couple of days ago, I hadn't talked to John about what this company means to him.

Jason: I see.

Mary: I believe in John and in his men, and so I just kept my reservations about you to myself.

Jason: Are these reservations personal or professional?

Mary: Both, Jason.

Jason: Isn't it going to be kind of difficult for us to work together like that?

Mary: I figure Iíll just deal with John as much as I can.

Jason: John's the one who's going to be here on the jobsite all the time.

Mary: All right, ok. We'll work something out.

Jason: Hey -- it's got to be difficult if you feel that way about me.

Mary: This is a professional -- a business arrangement. If it gets to be too difficult --

Jason: You'll keep about 10 feet from me at all times, right?

Mary: Why shouldn't I?

Jason: I'm going to find it very difficult, Mary, to deal with a lady who's afraid of me.

Mary: I am not afraid of you. I just want you to understand that the only reason that we are working together is because I want John to have this chance and you happen to be part of the package.

Jason: Part of the package?

Mary: That's right. And if you can accept that, then I figure we should be able to get through the next few months with as little strain as possible.

Jason: And that's how you want it?

Mary: That is how I want it.

Jason: Then that's how you got it. Excuse me.

Mary: Jason!

Jason: Yeah?

Mary: There was one other thing I did want to say.

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Mary: I really feel that what you did with Mikey was very, very unselfish.

Jason: Occasionally, I can do something decent.

Mary: But that can't change things between us.

Jason: Well, that's the part I don't really understand.

Mary: What?

Jason: You make a career out of forgiving people -- everybody. But not me. Never me.

Bert: Hey, John.

John: Hey, Bert. Thanks for coming right over.

Bert: No problem. I don't exactly have a full schedule these days.

John: Well, I think that might change.

Bert: I donít. Freelance construction work ain't exactly the going thing these days.

John: Well, who said anything about freelance?

Bert: Something's up, ain't it?

John: Well, Bert, you sly old devil, you always could read my mind. Take a look at that.

Bert: It says here Frame Construction company is going to build a new -- you're going to build the --

John: The new hospice. That's right, it sure does.

Bert: Whoa! That's a big job!

John: That's right, Bert, and I can't do it without you.

Bert: Are you saying --

John: I'm saying I want you to get on the phone and call the guys. Then I want you to call even more guys. I want you to get every vet who has any construction experience at all.

Bert: Does the hospital know that you're hiring mostly vets?

John: That's how we got the contract.

[Bert laughs]

Bert: I can't believe it.

John: We are in business, partner!

[John laughs]

Bert: Oh! Angie -- my 4-year-old, you know, she -- her birthday is next month, and she's been talking about a swing set. I didn't even think I could afford a picture of one.

John: Those days are over, partner.

Bert: I can't believe it. Did you tell them we're going to build the best building they ever saw?

John: I sure did.

Woman: Excuse me -- Mr. Hudson?

John: Yeah.

Woman: I'm with the hospital P.R. Department.

John: Oh, you probably want my brother, Michael Hudson. He's the one that's always donating to the hospital.

Woman: But you're the Mr. Hudson who's building the new wing, right?

John: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Woman: Well, I'd like to get a picture of you for the papers.

John: Ok, sure. Yeah -- listen -- this is my primary assistant and chief foreman, Mr. Bertram Riley. You think it'd be possible to have him in the picture as well?

Woman: Ok!

John: Fine. Mr. Riley, why don't you stand right over here. Big smile for the camera.

Woman: There we go.

Mac: Oh, Ms. Lawrence?

Ronnie: Mr. Cory.

Mac: Theyíre moving another patient into Samís hospital room.

Ronnie: Oh, yes. We needed the bed.

Mac: And it's been a very trying time for my son-in-law.

Ronnie: I know.

Mac: When he came out of the operation, he couldn't see. I think that he and Amanda need some time in private.

Ronnie: Yeah.

Mac: I haven't been able to do very much for them, but I'd like to take care of this hospital bill and also arrange for him to move into a private room.

Ronnie: Well, we only have a few private rooms.

Mac: I know.

Ronnie: Well, look, why don't you go down and talk to the business office and maybe they'll be able to help you. It's right down at the end of the hall.

Mac: Thank you very much.

Ronnie: Ok. And Mr. Cory -- well, you know Iím very fond of your daughter and her husband, so if there's anything I can do, please let me know.

Mac: I will, and thank you again very much for that.

Ronnie: Sure.

Ronnie: Excuse me. Nurse Lawrence speaking. May I help you?

Zack: Excuse me? Excuse me?

Ronnie: Excuse -- please hold.

Zack: I'm looking for a man whose son-in-law is a patient here.

Ronnie: Look, do I look like a detective?

Zack: I'm sorry. The patient's name is Sam Fowler.

Ronnie: You're looking for Mr. Cory.

Zack: Yes.

Ronnie: I'm afraid you just missed him.

Zack: Could you tell me where he went?

Ronnie: Can I take a message, please?

Zack: Could you tell me where he went?

Ronnie: Ok, thank you. Look, I'm not a detective and I'm not the lost and found. We have a full ward here, and I can't be responsible for relatives as well as patients.

Zack: Well, I guess it'd be asking too much for you to page him.

Ronnie: You're right. That would be asking too much.

Zack: Listen --

Ronnie: Yes, Iíll put you through. Thank you.

Zack: I'm Mr. Cory's attorney. I need to find him so we can schedule an emergency board meeting.

Ronnie: Look, we have real emergencies here. This is a hospital. Now, if you and Mr. Cory would like to do business, I suggest you do it at the office. Excuse me.

Mac: Oh, Zack.

Zack: Oh.

Mac: Is there a problem of some kind?

Zack: Yeah. We need to schedule an emergency board meeting as soon as possible.

Mac: Today?

Zack: I'm sorry.

Mac: It's just that Iíve left Rachel to deal with so many family problems lately.

Zack: Mac, look, maybe it can wait till tomorrow, but we have to schedule this meeting as soon as possible, and you know how hard it is to get everybody together.

Mac: I know, I know. It's just I'm between a rock and a hard place. Will you see what you can do, please?

Zack: Sure. Oh -- look, could you let her know that I'm not trying to sell insurance or something? I mean, she's a pretty hard case.

Mac: Miss Lawrence?

Zack: Yeah.

Mac: She's been wonderful to us. Well, ok, you take care of the board meeting --

Zack: Ok.

Mac: And I'll take care of things here. At least Iíll try.

Zack: Well, me, too.

Mac: Thank you very much, Zack.

Zack: It -- it's ok. Listen, I'm going to go in the lobby and use the telephone. Look, try not to worry, Mac.

Mac: "Try not to worry."

Ada: Mac.

Mac: Matthew!

Matt: Hi.

Ada: Is Rachel around?

Mac: She's in Samís room with Felicia and Mitch. I was just going into there.

Ada: Well, I think you better get them out here. Matthew has owed you all an explanation for a long time.

Mac: Yes, Iím aware of that.

Ada: And he wants to take care of it right now.

Matt: So after those clowns had thrown the rocks through the window, Kevin and I kind of figured it was getting out of hand.

Rachel: "Kind of"?

Matt: How is Sam doing, anyway?

Mitch: Just tell us what happened, Matthew.

Matt: Look, Tracy went up there to face those guys by herself, which is crazy, so last night Kevin and I followed her back to Winston.

Mac: To Winston?

Matt: Yes.

Mitch: That's hours away.

Rachel: Without telling anyone.

Felicia: So it's over, right? You got the guys to back off and leave Tracy alone?

Matt: Right.

Rachel: So you left school, you lied, you kept secrets, and then you decided to rush off and face the enemy all by yourself. Matthew, if you had just told one of us what was going on, we would have helped you.

Matt: I guess you don't agree with my tactics.

Rachel: I don't find it amusing, no.

Matt: I know, it's not. We were afraid of involving you, of you getting hurt. We thought we could clear it up by ourselves, and we did.

Ada: Matthew knows he messed up by not telling you all about it.

Matt: I'm sorry, Mom. I just wanted to help Kevin and Tracy, and I blew it.

Rachel: Yes, you certainly did. Don't you ever pull something like this again, please. Lying and secrecy hurt people. And I've been worried sick about you for months.

Matt: I know.

Ada: Well, no more. From now on, Matthewís life is an open book. Isn't it, Matthew?

Matt: Ask me anything.

Rachel: Is this really over?

Matt: Yes.

Rachel: Thank God. Oh, come here.

Jason: Mary, there is one logistical problem I think we're going to have to face.

Mary: Jason, I don't think we need to talk about this anymore. I think I've said really --

John: Hey. Bert and I are going to get our pictures in the paper. You should have seen him. He is so happy.

Mary: That's great.

John: He's just like -- just like you two. Real happy. What's wrong?

Jason: Nothing.

John: You two at each other already?

Mary: No.

Jason: I was going to tell her something about Mikey.

John: He's all right, isn't he?

Jason: Yeah. After what just happened, it's going to be very difficult for Vicky to be able to keep him.

Mary: I really can't stand the idea of him going to strangers.

Jason: Well, what I keep coming back to is where were his parents? Where are they now?

Mary: Guys, I really have to get back to work. I'm sorry.

[Sound of helicopter]

Jason: John -- John? Hudson?

John: Huh?

Jason: Mary says she has to get to work.

John: Oh, well, go ahead.

Jason: You and me, we are going to celebrate!

John: Let's do it!

Jason: How often does Frame Construction land a contract like that?

John: Thanks, Mary.

Jason: I got a feeling all kinds of things are going to change.

John: Sure you don't want to go home and hit the hay?

Jason: Hey, Frame Construction's a reality now. You want me to go home and sleep?

John: Well, you were up all night.

Jason: Yeah? I'm in the mood to buy for everybody in --

John: 10:00 in the morning?

Jason: Yeah, well, if anybody shows up, I'll buy hot chocolate for everybody. You must have made some presentation, John.

John: Yeah, I guess so. Listen, I'm awfully sorry about hollering at you in the office.

Jason: Forget it.

John: I know how important the company is to you, and you'd have been at the board meeting --

Jason: Look, what is important is the fact that you handled it by yourself and it got done right.

Cheryl: I assume you guys want coffee. Can I get you some menus?

Jason: No, no, no, no. We want one of everything you got for breakfast.

Cheryl: Everything?

Jason: Yeah, us entrepreneurs got big appetites.

Cheryl: Ok.

John: This is exactly how I -- how I envisioned celebrating my big break -- having an early bird special with a guy who hasn't showered in two days.

Jason: Hey, gas fumes have a way of clinging to you.

John: Tell me about it. Well, maybe I'll -- I'll really celebrate, have a sugar doughnut or something.

Jason: That sounds kind of bitter.

John: Uh-uh. Uh-uh. Who could possibly want more than this?

Jason: Me?

John: I mean, who would want a fancy dinner in a big restaurant or something?

Jason: It's bad for the cholesterol.

John: It's awful for your cholesterol. Yeah, some fine French wine --

Jason: We got too bad a trade deficit.

John: Absolutely. A couple of chicks -- Jason, that's what I want. A couple of chicks --

Jason: John, it's 10:00 in the morning.

John: Just for one night. I want to be a chauvinist boor with some beautiful, dumb blonde with no I.Q.

Jason: I'll take a redhead -- nice, sexy redhead, but one that doesn't talk very much.

John: Yeah, one that clips off the end of your cigar.

Jason: And wants to know your opinion on exactly everything in the entire world.

John: That's why she has to have a low I.Q.

Jason: You know what? They don't make that kind of woman.

John: No, no, they sure donít. Now they all have opinions. None of them like to be treated like objects anymore.

Jason: That's a sad comment on our times, boy.

John: I hear what you're saying. It's a sad comment.

[Matt whistles]

Kevin: I'm so tired. I don't know if I'll even make it through breakfast

Matt: I'm so hungry, I can't even think about sleeping.

Cheryl: Hey, guys.

Tracy: Hi.

Kevin: Hi. Will you guys excuse me for a minute?

Matt: Suddenly you don't seem so tired there, champ.

Kevin: I'm young. I don't need sleep.

Tracy: Are you -- you all right?

Matt: Yeah, yeah. I guess.

Tracy: I'm really -- I'm sorry about your uncle.

Matt: Yeah. It's really killing my dad. You can tell.

Tracy: You said that Jamie said it could be temporary, Matt.

Matt: It has to be. It has to be.

Tracy: Matthew, thank you.

Matt: You keep thanking me. You don't have to.

Tracy: I was just really glad to see you in the gym. I was really scared.

Matt: You didn't look that scared.

Tracy: That's because I was so mad.

Matt: You know, you shouldn't have gone there without us.

Tracy: You know, when I saw you, I thought two things.

Matt: Oh, yeah?

Tracy: You -- you want to hear?

Matt: Sure.

Tracy: The first -- I thought everything's going to be ok now.

Matt: Ooh. A little more faith than I did there.

Tracy: But almost at the same time, I thought, "he has the most incredible eyes Iíve ever seen."

Matt: I could say the same thing about you.

Kevin: No. Wait. You really like this book?

Cheryl: Would you stop it, Kevin? You're really driving me crazy. No, I don't like it. No. In fact, I think that the Nobel committee just gave this guy the prize just for the heck of it, just -- oh, Kevin.

Kevin: All right, so I sounded stupid again.

Cheryl: No, you didn't sound stupid. You just sounded a little --

Kevin: Naive? Unschooled? I don't know -- young?

Cheryl: Something like that.

Kevin: Well, you don't make it easy, Cheryl. We never talk about things that I know about.

Cheryl: Kevin, we've talked about photography.

Kevin: Yeah, but I mean the stuff that I really know about. For example, did you know that I have seen every "leave it to beaver" episode that there is three times at least? I'm serious.

Cheryl: I know you are.

Kevin: See, I impressed you, didn't I?

Cheryl: Actually, I really do like that show. My brother and I used to watch that all the time.

Kevin: Really?

Cheryl: What was that -- Eddie --

Kevin: Eddie Haskell.

Cheryl: Right, Eddie Haskell. He was great.

Kevin: [As Eddie Haskell] may I say, Miss McKinnon, that you look especially lovely this morning.

Cheryl: That's pretty good, Kevin.

Kevin: [Normal voice] no, no. Yeah, beaver had the same problem -- couldn't get the girls to take him seriously.

Cheryl: Yeah, I know what you mean.

Ronnie: I told you Iím off duty. I'm going home.

Zack: I just want to ask a question. I need to catch up with Mac before --

Ronnie: Look, this is a hospital, not a boardroom.

Zack: I'm aware of that. I just need to talk to Mac before he gets going.

Ronnie: Do you know what this family is going through? Business can wait.

Zack: And you get to make that decision? Well, for your information, I'm trying to make sure that Mac spends as much time with his family as he needs. Sorry if I bothered you.

Ronnie: Look, I'm sorry. I just pulled a double shift, and I'm just a little --

Zack: Unpleasant? Sanctimonious? Nurse-like?

Ronnie: I was going to say tired. But to answer your question, Mr. Cory went up to see his daughter on the third floor. He'll be back in a few minutes.

Zack: Thank you. It shouldn't take too long. Listen -- maybe I can give you a lift home?

Ronnie: Oh, no, thank you.

Zack: Well, you know, it's not good to drive if you're really tired.

Ronnie: I'll be careful. There he is.

Zack: Oh, thank you.

Zack: I think you bought a little time for now. Look, I'll try and keep a lid on this until tomorrow.

Mac: Thank you. I really appreciate that, Zack.

Zack: Oh, it's my pleasure, Mac. I'm sorry for your troubles.

Mac: Thank you.

Rachel: Hello, Zack.

Zack: Rachel.

Rachel: What? What's happening?

Mac: Nothing, darling.

Rachel: Don't tell me nothing's happening. I saw his face. Something's going wrong.

Mac: Rachel, there is nothing to worry about.

Rachel: What else is going to happen, Mac? How's Amanda?

Mac: She just drifted off to sleep, darling.

Rachel: Good.

Mac: And Sam?

Rachel: I can't even talk about it.

Mac: I know, sweetheart.

Rachel: Remember when the kids had the chicken pox and I was getting ready for that retrospective show and I was working around the clock and we didn't sleep for about three days? I felt like running away.

Mac: That's the way you feel now?

Rachel: No, you know, this is worse. I don't want to run away. I just want to help. My kids are hurting, and there's nothing I can do to help.

Mac: Matthew is back. That's progress, isn't it? Huh?

Rachel: Amanda can't take much more of this.

Mac: Don't you worry about Amanda. She's fine. She's resting. She's going to be just fine, darling. Stop worrying.

[Monitor beeps]

Sam: Hi, Amanda.

Amanda: I'm here. I'm right here. - Oh, look at all these flies! - The trash guy is mad.

Jake: You keep running away from me.

Marley: No.

Jake: Marley, there is something between us. Whether you want it or not, we love each other.

Marley: Jake, I know that.

Jake: Then what is so bad that we can't fix?

Marley: I'm sorry. I want to forgive you, Jake. I want to. I just -- I just can't.

Rachel: I'm sorry. I guess I'm starting to fall apart.

Mac: Don't you apologize.

Rachel: It's just that when I saw you with Zack, I thought, "there he goes. He's going to leave us."

Mac: Rachel, I would never leave you at a time like this.

Rachel: I know. I just got scared. I mean, I don't know how we'd get through this without you.

Mac: There is nothing in business that's more important to me than you and my family.

Rachel: We're awfully lucky to have you.

Mac: I talked to Jamie. Amanda's going to be fine. All she has to do is just take care of herself.

Rachel: She's afraid, Mac. She's afraid she's not going to be strong enough to help Sam. What?

Mac: She's just like you. She may be scared, but there is nothing that girl can't handle when her family's at stake.

Amanda: So then they took a heartbeat, but she's fine. She's in there pounding away.

Sam: It's a him.

Amanda: I feel so stupid, you know. I didn't eat, so I pass out.

Sam: Amanda, please don't apologize.

Amanda: I'm fine now. I'm going to be here --

Sam: Amanda --

Amanda: Whenever you want me.

Sam: Amanda, listen to me. Everything is going to be fine.

Amanda: Of course it is.

Sam: No, really. It is. I made a decision. There is no way that you're going to have my baby and I won't be able to see him.

Amanda: Her.
