Nicole: Good morning, Prince Charming. Are you awake?

Cass: No, I always laugh with my eyes closed in my sleep. Don't we have this backwards? I should be waking you up with a kiss.

Nicole: Yeah --

Cass: Yeah --

Nicole: But I was never one for tradition. Did you sleep well?

Cass: Oh, I had the most wonderful dream.

Nicole: Yeah? Tell me about it.

Cass: I was here with you all night long.

Nicole: That's just what happened.

Cass: Well, sometimes you just can't improve on reality. How about you? Did you have pleasant dreams?

Nicole: Hmm -- yeah, I did, but it wasn't last night. It was last week. I had a dream about you and me --

Cass: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: And Drew.

Cass: Drew who?

Nicole: You know, I think that's -- when I finally knew what I was going to do with my future.

Cass: Yeah? And what is that?

[Michael grunts]

Michael: Hi.

Donna: Hi. Good morning.

Michael: Wow, you look terrific.

Donna: Really? I do? I really do?

Michael: Yeah, you do. You really do.

Donna: Mm-hmm?

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Donna: Good.

[Mikey cries]

Michael: Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh -- Mikey's up.

Donna: Yes, he is, isn't he?

Michael: Yeah. Well, maybe Bridget needs a little help with him or something.

Donna: Michael, wait -- wait a minute. Could we -- could we talk about Mikey for just a minute?

Michael: Sure -- sure.

Donna: Well, I want you to know that I really am committed about being a good foster parent to him.

Michael: Donna --

Donna: No, no, no, I mean it. I really mean it. I want Mikey to like me, and I really want us to get along very well. I mean, I know that's what you want, and that's what I want, too.

Michael: Well, that's great. That's wonderful, thanks.

Donna: Oh, good.

Michael: Bye.

[Knock on door]

Michael: Come on in.

Bridget: Mr. Michael. Mikey's awake now. He wants to see you.

Donna: Oh, good, good! Well, bring him right in here, Bridget.

Bridget: Oh -- aye, aye. Yes, right away.

Michael: I want you to know, Donna, I am very happy about this.

Donna: Good, I'm glad. But, you know, there's something else you should understand.

Michael: What?

Donna: I mean, if you want Mikey and I to have a better relationship, then you have to give me that opportunity to do it. So when Bridget comes in here with him, I would like for you to let me take care of him. Is it a deal?

Michael: You. Deal.

Donna: All right.

[Man laughs]

Man: What a party! Hooking up with those women doctors from Tacoma was a stroke of genius.

Jamie: Yeah, genius.

Man: Oh, that Dr. Charlotte -- now, she was something else, huh? And Dr. Betsy -- ooh, what legs!

Jamie: Yeah.

Man: You know, I haven't had this much fun since -- well, since we pulled those all-nighters during medical school. Remember?

Jamie: Uh-huh.

Man: Well, that sounded cheerful.

Jamie: I'm -- Iím sorry, Rick. I --

Rick: What is wrong with you? Now, you can't be that tired.

Jamie: Well --

Rick: You spent half the night asleep in that chair -- and I don't think Dr. Kathy was too happy about it, either.

Jamie: I got something on my mind, Rick, that's all.

Rick: A woman?

Jamie: Uh-huh.

Rick: Uh-huh. Sounds serious.

Jamie: It is.

Rick: Well, if last night's partying didn't make you forget her, maybe this morning's lecture will do you some good, huh? Yeah -- "cartilage and you: Redefining human body tissue." Sounds intriguing, huh?

Jamie: That's it. I'm going home.

Rick: Oh, come on. The talk won't be that bad.

Jamie: Rick, Rick, Rick, I've -- I need to get home to settle some things. I can't concentrate.

Rick: You mean with this woman?

Jamie: Right.

Rick: Well, suit yourself. I'm going to go take a shower.

Jamie: Listen, I'll probably be gone by the time you finish, so, so long.

Rick: Yeah. Keep in touch, huh?

Jamie: Yeah, you bet.

Rick: And, buddy, hope you get what you want.

Jamie: Thanks.

Jamie: Hi, it's Dr. Frame, 6229. Yes, listen, I want to check out. I understand I can do that over the phone?

Man: It's right down the hall. You can't miss it. All right, bye-bye.

Woman: Oh, what a trip! That's the last time I fly the friendly skies of Trans-am airlines. An emergency overnight in Cleveland isn't my idea of fun.

Lisa: Oh, well, I'm just glad the engine trouble was minor.

Woman: Who cares about that? I've lost a day of my vacation. Where's the bar?

Lisa: It's only 8:00 in the morning.

Woman: Honey, I came to Palm Beach for some R Ďní R. After that nightmare in Cleveland, I need to unwind. Care to join me?

Lisa: No, I have to find my friend.

Woman: Suit yourself. Bloody Mary, here I come.

Lisa: Good morning.

Man: Oh, must be my lucky day.

Lisa: What do you mean?

Man: Oh, I just got on duty, and the first guest I see is about as good as it gets. I'm Jeff.

Lisa: I'm Lisa.

Jeff: Oh, hello, Lisa. Want to check in?

Lisa: No. Would you tell me what room Dr. Jamie Frame is in?

Jeff: Right, one moment. Sorry, he checked out already.

Nicole: I'm going to spend my life with the man I love.

Cass: And?

Nicole: And what?

Cass: Who is it? Who's the man you love?

[Nicole sighs]

Nicole: After last night, do you really have to ask?

Cass: Well, I think -- I mean, that is, you know, after last night -- yeah, I need to know, please. Tell me.

Nicole: You. You're the one I love.

Cass: Well, I knew that all along.

[Cass and Nicole laugh]

Cass: Actually, I have known that for weeks.

Nicole: I know you have, deep down. I have, too.

Cass: Come here.

Nicole: Cass?

Cass: Hmm?

Nicole: There's something I have to say right now. An explanation that I owe you.

Cass: For what?

Nicole: Well, for the reason it's taking me so long to realize that I'm in love with you.

Cass: I don't care.

Nicole: Well, I care. Oh, I put you through a nightmare, and I think you deserve to know why. Drew -- well, Drew was the first person I was ever in love with.

Cass: I know.

Nicole: And that made me blind to a lot of things when he came back into my life. I don't mean his business dealings -- although, I'm not crazy about them. I'm talking about the way Drew lives. I ended up overlooking a lot of details.

Cass: What's to overlook? Drew is perfect and he's -- he's perfect, he's perfect.

Nicole: I know, and boring.

Cass: A little boring.

Nicole: A little. Well, I finally admitted that to myself.

Cass: Good. Hooray.

Nicole: While you, you are infuriating --

Cass: Oh.

Nicole: Unpredictable --

Cass: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: And really very annoying at times.

Cass: Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Nicole: But --

Cass: Oh, I was waiting for that "but."

Nicole: I've had more fun with you than anyone in my life.

Cass: Then my reputation is still intact?

Nicole: Well, there's more to it, you know.

Cass: To what?

Nicole: My feelings. I mean, I love you because -- well, because you're honest with me and you listen -- most of the time.

[Cass chuckles]

Nicole: And even though you want things, you know, you don't let your ambitions get in the way of being kind.

Cass: Nicole --

Nicole: Wait, wait, there's one more thing. And I think this is probably the most important thing of all. Since I've met you, I've felt good about myself every day, and that's something new for me. You had a lot to do with it.

Cass: Tell me how.

Nicole: Well, because you let me see myself the way you see me.

Cass: Then you must be crazy about yourself.

[Nicole chuckles]

Nicole: Oh, you promise me you'll never change.

Cass: Oh, no, I can't believe she said -- are you sure that's what you want?

Nicole: No --

Cass: Cass Winthrop, just the way he is, forever and ever and ever?

Nicole: Hmm, of course. You know, with you, every day will be a brand-new, exciting thing.

Cass: Extravaganza?

Nicole: Yeah. And each moment will be an adventure.

Cass: A big adventure.

Nicole: Yeah.

Cass: Well, no, you know, things are a little bland right now. I mean, you're kind of wrapped up, so to speak, in the salon, and I'm fighting for Cory Publishing's life.

Nicole: I don't care.

Cass: We just don't have much excitement.

Nicole: The heck we don't! You just lay right there. "We don't have much excitement."

Cass: Well, I didn't mean to insult you.

[Nicole giggles]

Nicole: I'll be right back. Oh, great! Just stay put and get ready for an adventure.

Michael: Well, you think you're ready for Mikey? After all, it is a little early in the morning.

[Donna scoffs]

Donna: Michael, what difference does that make? I told you, everything is going to be great. It's going to be just fine.

Michael: Ok.

Donna: Trust me!

[Knock on door]

Michael: I do. Yeah?

Donna: Oh, come in!

Bridget: Oh, here we are! Look who we have!

Michael: Oh, hey, buddy! How are you? Ooh, good to see you! What a guy! Yes, indeed. What a guy!

Donna: Um, Michael?

Michael: Yes?

Donna: You remember our deal?

Michael: Uh -- oh, sure. Ok, well, I'm going to just put you down here on the bed now, and -- tell you what -- you guys have a good time today --

Donna: Oh, we will, we will.

Michael: And I got to go to work.

Donna: All right, see you.

Michael: So -- bye, Mikey.

Mikey: Bye!

Michael: Bye!

Donna: Oh, yes, it's going to be great. We are going to have so much fun today. We'll think of all kinds of things to do. Won't that be fun? Mikey? Mikey!

Lisa: Checked out? No, that can't be. He's supposed to be here for two more days.

Jeff: Yes, he had a reservation till Saturday, but he canceled early.

Lisa: Canceled -- when did he cancel?

Jeff: Oh, beats me.

Lisa: But --

Jeff: Oh, Lisa, look, all my computer is telling me is that Dr. Frame is gone. I'm sorry.

Lisa: I just flew down here from Bay City to meet him!

Jeff: Well, can't it wait?

Lisa: I guess it'll have to.

Jeff: Are you going to fly straight home?

Lisa: I just got off the worst flight of my life. I'm not too eager to get back on a plane.

Jeff: Oh, why don't you stay here? There are worse places to be than Palm Beach.

Lisa: No, I have to get back.

Jeff: Well, look, if you're going to see this guy, don't you want to look as good as possible? Why don't you relax, stay the night? I'd be happy to show you around.

Lisa: No, that won't be necessary. I think I'll just rest for a little while and then I'll call the airport.

Jeff: Ok, suit yourself. But if you change your mind, I'd love to make you a reservation.

Lisa: Thanks.

Jamie: I ordered a plane ticket from my room a few minutes ago. The name is --

Jeff: The concierge would have that ticket if it's ready. His desk is over there. If you did just call, it might be a few minutes. Why don't you have some breakfast while you're waiting?

Jamie: Thanks. I'm not hungry.

Matt: Kevin? Kevin -- oh. Not here. Tracy, hi.

Tracy: Hi. I was -- I was just looking for Kevin.

Matt: Yeah, me, too, but he's not here.

Tracy: Huh. No kidding.

Matt: Nope. Maybe I should be a detective, huh?

Tracy: Yeah, right. So, how is everything, Matt?

Matt: Fine.

Tracy: You know, being at your pool has been really great.

Matt: Hmm.

Tracy: I was thinking, maybe you should invite your friend from the party phone to come and swim.

Matt: Huh?

Tracy: You know, the one you were talking to about Amandaís baby.

Matt: Oh, yeah, right. Why did you split on me, then? I was done talking with her, and you were gone.

Tracy: I just thought it was going to take a while, you know.

Matt: Oh, yeah. Yeah.

Tracy: So, is she right?

Matt: For what?

Tracy: Kevin?

Matt: Kevin?

Tracy: Well, you were setting her up to meet Kevin, right?

Matt: Yeah, yeah. I'm just not sure that she's the one for Kevin. I need more time before I get those two together, you know?

Kevin: Together for what?

Matt: Kevin.

Kevin: Matt. What do you think you're doing?

Matt: Nothing.

Kevin: Tracy, what were you two just talking about?

Tracy: Well, we were just talking about --

Matt: We just thought, since we were having so much fun with the party phone the other day, that maybe we'd meet somebody that you would like to get to know.

Kevin: You mean go out with?

Matt: Right.

Tracy: Well, Matt talked to this girl and --

Kevin: Hold it. You guys think that I'm not capable of finding a girl on my own? Well?

Matt: Sure.

Tracy: Kevin, of course.

Kevin: Then just save it, all right? Matt, I really don't need your help finding a girl. I just want to know one thing --

[Matt sighs]

Kevin: What is she like?

[Bridget laughs]

Bridget: Oh, you're going to be the star of the day.

Donna: Oh --

Bridget: We're going to have your breakfast in here. Yes.

Donna: Right.

Bridget: That's what you're going to do. Aye. That's a good boy.

Donna: Oh, look at that! Oh --

Bridget: Don't you think we'd be better off if he had his breakfast in the kitchen?

Donna: Oh, no, absolutely not. You have so much to do in there. This way, Mikey and I -- we won't be in your way at all.

Bridget: Yeah, but, you see, you wouldn't be in my way.

Donna: Bridget, Bridget, you know I want to do this by myself.

Bridget: Yes, I understand, dear --

Donna: Everything is going to be just fine. Now, do you have his food?

Bridget: Oh, yes, here -- here's the cereal.

Donna: Oh, all right, right. Oh, good! Yum!

Bridget: I'll put the applesauce right over here, dear.

Donna: Oh, perfect. Thank you very much.

Bridget: Yes.

Donna: You can go right back to the kitchen.

Bridget: Oh, shall I get a bib?

Donna: Well, he already has one.

Bridget: No, I mean for you.

Donna: Why would I need a bib? Bridget, really, everything's going to be just fine. You'll see. Go ahead, go back to the kitchen. Do whatever you need to do.

Bridget: But, you know, if you have any trouble giving him that, you see, you add a little applesauce to it --

Donna: All right --

Bridget: And he likes the applesauce --

Donna: All right, that's great, thank you.

Bridget: He really --

Donna: Really, everything's fine. We'll be just fine.

Bridget: Oh --

Donna: Ok?

Bridget: I'll be in the kitchen if you need me.

Donna: Yes, fine, fine. Oh, all right! We are going to eat. Here you go, that's everything.

Mikey: Ah --

Donna: Mikey, what's the matter? I thought you were hungry. Not going to eat it, huh? All right, I know.

Mikey: No.

Donna: I know, here we go, here we go. We'll do this --

[Donna imitates an airplane]

Donna: It's going to come in for a landing and we've got to open those hangars! No, huh?

[Donna sighs]

Donna: Ok. All right. Here we go. Now --

[Donna gasps]

Donna: Mmm, mmm! This is so good! Come on, come on, open up that mouth. Mikey, please! Oh, oh, the applesauce, I know, I know.

[Donna gasps]

Donna: You remember that story that Michael was reading you all about the choo-choo train?

Mikey: Choo-choo!

Donna: Yes! Choo-choo train! Well, now we're going to pretend we're on that choo-choo train --

Mikey: Choo-choo!

Donna: And here he goes up the track --

[Donna imitates a train]

Donna: Choo-choo! Here comes a tunnel, and let's go in -- please, let's go in the tunnel. Oh, Mikey! I know, I know. Now you watch this. Your aunt Donna just loves your oatmeal and applesauce -- mmm -- yeah, I guess you have to acquire a taste for this, don't you?

Mikey: Yeah.

Donna: Yeah, well, you're supposed to like this glop, so here we go, here we go. Let's -- let's try to eat this. Now come on -- all right, Mikey, that's it. You are going to stay in this chair until you eat your breakfast. Do you understand me? Come on, eat your breakfast.

Donna: Oh, Mikey, that's good! That's good, that's really good. Oh, this is working out great! This is going to be perfect. Oh, you're such a good boy! Yes! Eat all of it --

Donna: Yeah. Mikey, no -- Mikey, this has got to stop. No, no, no, we're not going to do that anymore. We don't throw -- we don't throw food on people, Mikey. We eat it.

Cass: What a day. From the Sahara to the wild, Wild West.

Nicole: Hmm, and that was just this morning. Wait until dark, stranger.

Cass: Ooh, I don't know if I can.

Michael: Sorry. Sorry.

Nicole: Oh, Michael, hi.

Michael: I thought the salon was open.

Nicole: Well, it is -- unfortunately.

Michael: Right. I'll -- I'll come back.

Nicole: No, no, please, please. We both need to get back to work.

Cass: Yeah, which reminds me, I left my files upstairs. I'll be right back.

Michael: Well, you two seem friendly.

Nicole: Michael, I have the best news. Cass and I are back together -- really back together.

Michael: That's wonderful.

Nicole: I can't wait to tell Donna. How is she?

Michael: Well, as a matter of fact, that's why I stopped by.

Nicole: Why? Something's wrong?

Michael: No, no, no. She's fine. It's just -- she's with Mikey.

Nicole: Alone?

Michael: Alone. Actually, she asked me to leave. And Bridgetís there, but I thought maybe having somebody she knows and trusts there might help her get through, you know, just in case there's a little mishap or something like that.

Nicole: Well, I don't have any appointments until later this afternoon. I can stop over there to see her.

Michael: Really?

Nicole: Yeah.

Michael: Great.

Nicole: All right.

Michael: That would be great. I'll stick around and maybe congratulate Cass on what a lucky guy he is.

Nicole: Oh, well, I think I'm the lucky one. Will you just tell Cass that Iíll be back soon? That is, if he can wait before leaving for work.

Michael: Somehow I have a feeling he'll be here when you get back.

Nicole: Ok.

Michael: Nicole?

Nicole: Yeah?

Michael: Congratulations.

Nicole: Michael, being in love is the best, isn't it?

Michael: Yeah. It's the best. Bye.

Woman: Hi, honey!

Lisa: Oh, hi, Darlene. How are you feeling?

Darlene: Feeling a lot better. Like Iím ready to check into this hotel and out of that nightmare I call my life. Did you find your friend?

Lisa: No, I missed him.

Darlene: Aw, shame.

Lisa: I guess maybe it was for the best.

Darlene: You don't sound like it is. Well, take care, honey.

Lisa: Bye, Darlene.

Lisa: He's here. He's here. Excuse me --

Jeff: Oh, wait, I have a room for you overlooking the ocean --

Lisa: No, no, please -- would you please check Dr. Frame's reservation again?

Jeff: Look, I told you, he's not here.

Lisa: Oh, please? For me?

Jeff: Well, all right, all right. Nope, he's still checked out.

Lisa: What room?

Jeff: Oh, no, no, no, no, I can't give you that information. No --

Lisa: Sure you can, Jeff. For me?

Jeff: 6229.

Lisa: Thanks.

Jeff: You're welcome.

Concierge: Here's your ticket, sir, and here's your luggage.

Jamie: Oh, thank you.

Concierge: My pleasure.

Jamie: Thank you.

Jamie: Thanks again.

Donna: Why, Nicole! What a surprise!

Nicole: Hey, Donna. Well, I just stopped by to share some good news with you.

Donna: Great!

Nicole: You look really nice today.

Donna: Oh, thanks. I hope this one doesn't have to go to the cleaners before noon.

Nicole: What?

Donna: Oh, nothing, never mind. So, tell me, what's your good news?

Nicole: Cass and I are back together.

[Donna gasps]

Donna: Oh, you are? Oh, oh, that's wonderful, that's wonderful! When did it happen?

Nicole: Well, there's no big mystery about it, really. I just simply finally realized that Cass is the one for me. He always was.

Donna: Oh, I am so glad. Truthfully, I always thought he was the one for you.

Nicole: I'm glad I realized it, as well, you know, before it was too late and Iíd lost him for good.

Donna: Yeah. Oh, Drew -- what did he say?

Nicole: Well -- about Cass and me being back together?

Donna: Uh-huh.

Nicole: I don't really care. It doesn't matter. No matter what he says, it's not going to change how I feel.

Donna: Well, good! This is a very good sign. It means that you have made the right choice! Oh, listen, I was just about to have some coffee. Would you like it?

Nicole: Um, sure, yeah.

Donna: Oh, here we go.

Nicole: So, how are you doing?

Donna: Me?

Nicole: Yeah, you.

Donna: I'm -- Iím fine.

Nicole: Well, where's Mikey?

Donna: Oh, he's -- he's in the kitchen with Bridget. She's feeding him breakfast.

Nicole: Well, how's it been going since he's been here?

Donna: Oh, it's been fine -- no, it hasn't been. It's been an absolute disaster.

Nicole: Oh, it can't be that bad.

Donna: Oh, it's worse than that. I haven't been able to do one right thing for him.

Nicole: Donna, I think you're overreacting. You know, getting to know a small child takes time.

Donna: No. No, you don't understand. The more we are together, the less we like each other. I really am beginning to think that I made a mistake -- that having Mikey here is not right for either one of us.

Kevin: Well?

Matt: What's she like?

Kevin: Yeah.

Matt: I don't know.

Tracy: Come on, she must've described herself.

Matt: No.

Tracy: You know her name?

Matt: Just her code name.

Kevin: What is it?

Matt: That doesn't matter. Not yet. You see, I have to check her out first.

Kevin: Well, can't you just at least tell me what she sounds like?

Matt: Normal. She sounds kind of shy.

Tracy: Perfect! Kevin loves them vulnerable.

Kevin: Tracy, cut it out.

Tracy: No, I think you should give Kevin her code name and let him take it from here.

Matt: Listen, I'm telling you guys, I need more information.

Kevin: Why?

Matt: Look, if she turns out to be a total dweeb, who are you going to blame?

Kevin: Well, I don't want you setting me up with some kind of weirdo or anything.

Matt: I know. Like that girl at the movies with the green hair and tattoos?

Kevin: Exactly.

Tracy: No way. Come on, you cannot be serious.

Matt: Hey, I don't want my friend going out with some alien from another world. Besides, that other girl -- the leather girl at the mall --

Kevin: Oh, no, the one with the chains?

Matt: Exactly. I mean, she was serious business.

Kevin: She was interesting.

Matt: Interesting?

Kevin: Not my type, though.

Matt: No, not my --

Kevin: But, I mean, this party phone chick -- she could be some kind of hermit or something. You know, she never leaves her room, always calling the party phone? I don't know about this.

Matt: Well, it's a way to meet guys --

Tracy: Wait a minute. Do you guys always talk about girls like this, huh?

Matt: Yes.

Kevin: Yeah. Oh, I got to get out of here.

Matt: Ooh, uh-oh.

Kevin: Listen, I'll see you guys later. Matt, no chains?

Matt: Hey, no chains.

[Tracy chuckles]

Tracy: I don't know. You guys can be pretty picky.

Matt: Picky?

Tracy: Mm-hmm.

Matt: I'm just protecting my friend. I don't want him getting involved with the wrong sort.

Tracy: Hmm. I think this party phone can be a pretty dangerous weapon.

Matt: I'll tell you, in the wrong hands, who knows what havoc it could wreak.

Tracy: Oh, that's right. So, Mr. Matthew Cory, I'm glad you don't need it for yourself.

Matt: Yeah, me, too.

[Tracy giggles]

Donna: Mikey's terrible.

Nicole: Donna --

Donna: No, no, no, I don't mean that. I mean that when we're together, we have a terrible time.

Nicole: Take this aspirin.

Donna: I can't believe it. It's 10:00 and I already have a headache.

Nicole: Oh, so now you're going to beat yourself up because you have a headache? That's smart, Donna, very smart.

[Donna sighs]

Donna: Oh, maybe you're right. I'm being overanxious about all of this.

Nicole: Just a little. Now, why don't you just take a breath and tell me about this?

Donna: Well, I really don't know where to begin.

Nicole: Try.

Donna: Mikey and I don't get along.

Nicole: You know what I think?

Donna: Well, if I don't know, I'm sure you're going to tell me.

Nicole: You're right, I am. I'm your sister, and I love you, so just shut up and listen.

Donna: Yes, ma'am.

Nicole: I think that you're being too hard on yourself.

Donna: I'm being too hard on myself?

Nicole: Donna, I realize that you have two daughters of your own, but you never took care of Marley the way you're taking care of Mikey now.

Donna: So?

Nicole: Well, so, changing diapers and feeding a small child takes practice. And you don't have any experience -- not yet.

Donna: Hmm.

Nicole: You'll be natural with a small child. It just takes time.

Donna: Right, right. And what about Michael and Victoria?

Nicole: Well, what about them?

Donna: Well, they are taking care of Mikey like they have forever. Not to mention Bridget. And even when Marley was here, she took to him. And then every time Mary McKinnon comes over to see him, he runs to her, he adores her. He's lovable with everybody but me.

Nicole: No, that can't be true.

Donna: Oh, no. No, it's very true. You know, if he were to come in here right now, Iíd bet you anything he would run right to you, and you would probably be able to take better care of him than I ever could.

Nicole: Donna, wait a minute. Now, if you are having a problem with Mikey, it's probably only because you've been through a lot more than most people lately.

Donna: No, no, I don't --

Nicole: No, please -- you just relax and you stop being so hard on yourself. And just try to remember that, you know, all mothers go through tough times with their kids.

Donna: I am not his mother, and I never will be!

Donna: Ok, we've got the bear, one car, two cars, and we've got that over there, and the bear over there. Let's see -- oh!

Bridget: Yes, we're all finished with our breakfast now.

Donna: Oh, good, good. Well, you can leave him with me now! Come on over here, Mikey.

Bridget: Are you sure?

Donna: That a boy!

Bridget: Are you sure --

Donna: Oh, of course, of course. Everything will be just fine. I mean -- whoa, look at this! I mean, how -- how much trouble can it be to watch a little boy play, huh?

Bridget: I really don't mind staying, you know, for a while and --

Donna: Oh, no, no. No, we'll be just fine. Ok?

Bridget: I'll be in the kitchen.

Donna: All right, thank you, thank you. Hey, Mikey, look at me. Look at me! Come here. I tell you what -- we're going to play with some toys! Why don't you show me which toy you want to play with?

Mikey: The toys.

Donna: Go show me. Show me. What toy do you want to play with? Huh?

[Donna gasps]

Donna: Mikey! No, no, wait, wait, wait, wait. Here we go. Let's come back over here and play with the toys, ok? Maybe we'll play with the cars here. And besides, I think you and I need to have a little talk. Here we go. Look -- look, we've got a car. Oh, you know, I'm sure you'd rather be here with Michael or Victoria or Marley or just about anybody, for that matter, but me. But the truth is, is that we are, you know, here together, so I think we should just make the best of it.

[Mikey hums]

Donna: I do, I want to get along with you so very much.

[Mikey sings]

Donna: And I know you don't like me very well right now, and the truth is, is that I do have some problems with you, too. But let me try to explain that to you. It's just that you're such a -- a cute, adorable, little boy, and you just remind me of some -- well, anyway, you make it hard for me to be with you sometimes. And I know you don't like being with me very much, either, but -- hey, listen, we are here together, and let's just try to make the best of it, ok?

Mikey: Yeah.

Donna: All right, so I tell you what -- why don't you show me again -- what toy do you want to play with? What toy? What other toy do you want to play with?

[Donna gasps]

Donna: Go show me what toy! Mikey, no!

[Vase breaks]

Matt: Nah, Iíd just get in the way.

Tracy: Great.

Matt: But I'll be here till you get a break, ok?

Charlie: The man's an operator.

Woman: Charlie, shut up and let them talk.

Matt: So, how about it?

Riviera: No.

Matt: No? Why -- why no?

Riviera: Because I need to get to know you better first on the phone.

Matt: It's kind of public this way. Do you think you can give me your home phone number?

Riviera: Uh -- sorry.

Matt: Oh, come on.

Riviera: No, and I really have to go.

Matt: Wait -- ok. When can we talk again?

Riviera: Well --

Matt: Come on.

Riviera: How about -- noon?

Donna: Oh, hi.

Michael: Hi.

Donna: Hi. How are you?

Michael: I'm fine. Where's Mikey?

Donna: Oh, oh, he's upstairs. Bridget's putting him down for his nap.

Michael: So?

Donna: So? So what?

Michael: Well, how'd it go?

Donna: Oh, oh -- it was fabulous, fabulous.

Michael: Wow. Really? Oh, really? Huh.

Donna: Well, no, well, he did get a little rambunctious, but --

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Donna: But I set him down and I had a long talk with him.

Michael: Now, did he calm down after that?

Donna: No, not exactly.

Michael: But everything's ok? You're ok?

Donna: Oh, yes, yes, yes, I am. I'm fine.

Michael: Well, I guess it just goes to show you you can't reason with a 2-year-old, right?

Donna: No. No, you certainly canít.

Michael: Well, he's -- he's upstairs?

Donna: Yes, with Bridget.

Michael: Well, maybe I'll just pop in and say hi, then, huh?

Nicole: Oh. You did wait for me to come back.

Cass: I did better than that. I called in sick.

Nicole: You did? Well, you don't seem sick to me.

Cass: I'm delirious.

Nicole: You are?

Cass: Uh-huh. Ooh, I got some more ideas on things that we can try out.

Nicole: You do?

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: Like?

Cass: Like -- the farmer and the milkmaid, like Olive Oyl and Popeye, like two astronauts -- I thought we could try.

Nicole: Oh, wow! What have I created?

Cass: Quite possibly the best thing that you've ever had.

Nicole: Hmm. Let's go.

Cass: Just -- one thing.

Nicole: What?

Cass: We have to talk to Drew.

Nicole: Oh, right. Oh, well, I'll call him up and set up an appointment for me to talk to him.

Cass: Not you -- we. I want to be there when we tell him when he finds out that we're back together again.

Nicole: Why? You want to rub his face in it?

Cass: Oh, no, no, nothing like -- well, maybe just a little, but --

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Cass: It's much more than that. I want us to be there together to make sure that there are no mistakes this time. Ok?

Nicole: You're the sheik. You speak, I obey.

Cass: Hmm. Kiss me. Kiss me with more passion.

Nicole: Oh.

Cass: Now come with me to the casaba.

Nicole: Anything.

Cass: I also thought that we could do Mickey and Minnie Ė

Lisa: What are we doing?

Jamie: Trying to talk.

Lisa: No, this is ridiculous.

Jamie: Yeah, I -- next -- next car, please.

Man: Well --

Jamie: I'm sorry, next car. I thought you wanted to talk.

Lisa: I do want to talk, but not in an elevator. This isn't the right place.

Jamie: Well, it's never going to be the right place, and it's never going to be the right time. There are some things we're going to settle right now before we ever walk out of here.


Lisa: Jamie!

Jamie: I don't care if anybody ever gets out of this hotel again. There's something I need to know, and right now.

Lisa: What?

Jamie: Do you still love me?
