[Knock on door]

Jason: It's open.

Rachel: Good morning, Jason.

Jason: Rachel.

Rachel: Is my son here?

Jason: He's already gone to the hospital, a couple of hours ago.

Rachel: Oh, I was afraid that would happen.

Jason: Why? Is something wrong?

Rachel: No, I'm just going away for a couple weeks and I wanted to say goodbye to him.

Jason: He mentioned Macís going to Europe. I guess that gives you some freedom. You'll probably do some traveling on your own, huh?

Rachel: I'm meeting my husband in Europe, Jason.

Jason: Well, you got me on that one, then.

Rachel: Listen, I'm probably not going to be able to catch up with Jamie. Can I leave him a note?

Jason: Sure. I'll see to it that he gets it.

Rachel: Thank you.

Jason: Would you like some coffee? It's right good this morning.

Rachel: Oh, no, thanks.

Sharlene: Jason Frame, there are no clean towels in this house!

Jason: Guess I'll have to get used to living with that, won't I?

Sharlene: Jason, when was the last time anybody did a load of laundry around here?

Rachel: I -- maybe I'll just go. Tell him I --

Sharlene: It's a good thing I came when I -- Rachel.

Rachel: Sharlene?

Sharlene: It's been a long time.

Nicole: Cass? Sophie made coffee -- oh. Hi.

Cass: Hi. There's a lot to do today.

Nicole: Oh, I know. Sometimes I wonder if this will ever slow down.

Cass: It wonít. It will never, ever slow down.

Nicole: Oh. Who am I calling?

Cass: Lord Byron, of course.

Nicole: You want me to call Drew?

Cass: Well, I know it's not going to be easy, but it has to be done.

Nicole: It does?

Cass: Yeah. He's probably still asleep, so that'll make it easier.

Nicole: I know you're going to find this hard to believe, Cass, but I don't know what you're talking about.

Cass: Nicole --

Nicole: What?

Cass: Today is the day that you tell Drew that it's over.

Nicole: Oh, that's not today.

Cass: Yes, yes, it -- we decided that it was today. Now, come on. Just tell him that it's been fun, tell him that you'll never forget him, and then tell him to get lost.

Nicole: Oh, Cass.

Cass: Well, you do want to tell him, don't you?

Nicole: Well, yes. No. I don't know.

Cass: I love a woman who knows her own mind.

Nicole: No, I mean, I know that I have to tell him. I just don't want to hurt his feelings.

Cass: He's a big boy. He'll understand. Shall I dial for you? I'd be happy to dial for you.

Nicole: I have to tell him in person.

Cass: Well, it's -- that would be the decent thing to do, I suppose. All right. Have him come over here and then we'll tell him together.

Nicole: No. No, no, no. We wonít.

Cass: Haven't we already been through this?

Nicole: Cass, I have to do this alone.

Cass: Here we go again. Ok. I'll wait in the office. You won't even know I'm here. Just tell him to hurry, ok?

Nicole: What service.

Cass: It's ringing.

Nicole: Thank you. Drew. Hi. It's Nicole. No, no, no, I'm fine. Drew, do you think you could come over to the salon this morning? No, no, no, everything's fine. Oh, great. Ok -- oh, great, great. Well, then, I'll just see you later. I'll be waiting for you. Ok.

Cass: What?

Nicole: Bye. Bye. Cass!

Cass: What?

Nicole: I don't want you hovering!

Cass: Hovering? I'm not hovering!

Scott: Excuse me.

Scott: What the --

Rachel: Sharlene Matthews.

Sharlene: Watts.

Rachel: You remarried?

Sharlene: No. After Russ and I divorced, I took my first husband's name.

Rachel: Uh-huh. So, you're staying here on the farm.

Sharlene: Yeah, for now. It's big enough.

Rachel: Well, Jason seems very busy constructing the hospice.

Sharlene: Yeah, yeah, he's always running in and out of here, you know. So are all of his workers. That's -- that's why this place is such a mess.

Rachel: You have a daughter, don't you?

Sharlene: Yeah, Josieís 17.

Rachel: 17?

Sharlene: Yeah, but her dad -- you know, I hear that your Amanda had a baby. Now, the last time I saw her --

Rachel: Donít. I'm a grandmother -- enough said.

Sharlene: Uh-huh. Oh, yeah.

Rachel: Jamie's a doctor.

Sharlene: I know. I saw him yesterday with his girlfriend.

Rachel: Vicky?

Sharlene: No, I -- no. She was here, too. I mean, Lisa? A beautiful girl, and they just got back from Palm Beach.

Rachel: Jamie went to Palm Beach with Lisa?

Sharlene: Yeah.

Rachel: That boy -- he never tells me what he's doing. He's just like Matthew.

Sharlene: Yeah, I heard that Mitch was back in town.

Rachel: Yes, he's been here for quite a while. Matthew and Mitch are very close.

Sharlene: Must be hard on you and Mac.

Rachel: No, it isnít. Not always.

Sharlene: Well, you came all the way out here to see Jamie.

Rachel: Yes, and he's gone to work.

Sharlene: Mm-hmm.

Rachel: Well, what have you been doing with yourself all these years?

Sharlene: I have been trying to raise my daughter, and that has taken up almost all of my time.

Rachel: I know how that is.

Sharlene: Yeah. Oh, we've -- we've never had much, but I don't think either one of us has suffered for it.

Rachel: Do you talk to Russ?

Sharlene: No. Do you?

Rachel: No, never.

Sharlene: Well, that's just as well, I guess. Life's complicated enough.

Rachel: Yes, right. Listen, Sharlene, I'm going to have to go. I'm catching a plane to Europe to meet my husband.

Sharlene: Ooh, that sounds great.

Rachel: Well, hopefully. Thank you for the coffee.

Sharlene: Yeah. Rachel?

Rachel: Yes?

Sharlene: Look, I know that you and I have never really been friends. But there's a lot of Frame history between us.

Rachel: Yes, there is.

Sharlene: I just -- I just really enjoy talking to you.

Rachel: Well, thank you.

Sharlene: And I -- I just wish you could stay a while longer.

Rachel: Oh, I -- I'd love to, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Come on, please, please. I -- I can't stand talking to Jason all day long.

Rachel: Well, let's see.

Sharlene: Come on.

Rachel: Just a little while, ok?

Sharlene: Great! I've got some sweet rolls.

Rachel: Oh, that sounds great.

Sharlene: Let's do sweet rolls.

Rachel: Ok.

[Cass whistles]

Cass: What are you doing?

Nicole: Huh?

Cass: Why did you change?

Nicole: Oh, I don't know.

Cass: Well, why -- why did you change into this dress?

Nicole: Oh, Cass, stop worrying.

Cass: No, no. I don't understand why you're getting all dressed up for him.

Nicole: It's not for him. I just wanted to change.

Cass: Are you sure? Hmm.

Nicole: Ok?

Cass: Hmm.

Nicole: "Hmm"? And what does "hmm" mean?

Cass: Well, I'm a worrier by nature.

Nicole: Well, Cass, don't worry. Now, Drew has been very good to me, but I love you. Got it?

Cass: Ok, got it.

Nicole: Ok. Now, go take a walk or something.

Cass: Oh, no, I'm staying.

Nicole: Oh, Cass!

Cass: Not in this room, but, like I said before, in the office nearby.

Nicole: Promise?

Cass: Absolutely.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: Ok. Now, here's what I want you to say to him --

Nicole: Oh, you don't give up!

Cass: And don't let him off the hook too easily. He deserves to squirm a little.

Nicole: Oh, I am not listening to this.

Cass: The first thing you should say is, "Drew, I will always care for you --" no, don't say that.

Nicole: I can't hear you.

Cass: Uh -- "Drew, we're old friends, but I'm devoted to Cass." Ooh.

Nicole: Hey, that's not bad.

Cass: Yeah.

Nicole: Yeah.

Cass: "So, although I will always appreciate what you've done for me --"

Nicole: Go on.

Cass: "I think it's time you got on your white horse and galloped out of our lives."

Nicole: Oh, no, that won't work!

Cass: "And if I never hear your name mentioned again in my entire lifetime, it'll be too soon."

Nicole: Cass!

Cass: Well, maybe that's a little harsh.

Nicole: Thank you.

Cass: But you do get the drift?

Nicole: Trust me -- I can do this.

Cass: Ok. Now, what time did he say he was going to get here?

Nicole: He said he was coming right over.

Drew: Oh. Nicole.

Cass: Speak of the devil.

Michael: Look, it's Mr. Bunny! Mr. Bunny! Ah! Hey, Donna.

Donna: Hi.

Michael: Hi. Where you been?

Donna: Oh, I just had some things to do.

Michael: Really? Well, Mikey's been looking for you all day.

Donna: Somehow I doubt that.

Michael: Yeah, he wanted to give you a little kiss.

Donna: Michael, please. I know he doesnít.

Michael: Ah, come on!

Donna: Oh --

Michael: Here, take him for a sec, would you? I have a phone call to make upstairs.

Donna: Well, wait a minute. Where's Bridget?

Michael: Bridget's not here. I'll be back in a couple of minutes.

Donna: Michael!

Michael: Have fun, Donna, ok?

[Mikey babbles]

Donna: Well, I guess it's just you and me again. I guess we should try to make the best of this, huh? What do you want to play with? You want to play with your blocks? Here, let's put them up here. How about that?

Mikey: Blocks!

Donna: Mm-hmm, up there. Listen, I want you to know something.

Mikey: What?

Donna: I want you to know that I am trying my very best to make sure they find your parents. Oh, I'm sure they're good people. And I'm sure there's some logical explanation why they haven't come to claim you. Wait a minute, I've got an idea.

Mikey: Cool!

Donna: Come here. Come here, quick. Let's go draw! Yeah?

Mikey: Yeah!

Donna: I want to see if you can draw. Sit down right here and here is some paper. And look at this -- do you know what this is? This is a gold pen.

Mikey: Pen!

Donna: Pen. You be very careful with that. Now, show me what you can draw. Yes. Gold is very important -- you'll learn that. Oops! Hold on. Let me get it.

Mikey: Ok.

Donna: Let's try it again, ok? You'll learn gold can make you very, very rich someday.

Mikey: This one.

Donna: Yeah. What are you going to draw? Ooh, that's going to be good. Yeah. Um -- maybe we'd better try something else. I know, I know -- the telephone. Do you like the telephone? Hmm?

Mikey: No.

Donna: No? Well, I do. You know, I've always liked the telephone. Let me see. Hello? Oh, no, no, no, wait! You're kidding. You -- you want to talk to Mikey? Well, he's right here. Here, somebody wants to talk to you. Come on. Come on, say, "hello." Well, you can at least tell them goodbye. Can't you tell them goodbye?

Mikey: Bye! Bye!

Donna: Oh, ok. Well, I'll let you hang it up then. You talk to them, ok?

Mikey: Hi.

Donna: Hi.

Mikey: Hi. Hi! Bye!

Donna: Oh, you really are adorable.  Oh -- don't cry very much. Oops -- come back here. Come draw some more, ok? Draw some more. Yeah!

Mikey: Daddy?

Donna: You can even play the phone again if you want to.

Mikey: Daddy? Daddy?

Donna: Yeah! That's a good boy. You are so cute, and I -- I am. I'm really trying. You just make it so difficult sometimes.

[Phone hits floor]

Donna: Mikey, no! Oh, I can't believe -- you know, you probably broke it. Oh, I'm -- no, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say that. It was my fault for showing you the phone, you know? It's all my fault. I didn't mean to do that.

Michael: No?

Donna: Just remind me I don't show you the crystal, ok?

Michael: I was thinking --

Donna: What?

Michael: Of taking old buddy here over to mom's farm this afternoon and showing him the animals. You want to come along?

Donna: Oh. Oh, well, thank you, but I -- I have a lot to do.

Michael: Oh, come on, Donna. It'd be a lot of fun.

Donna: Michael, truthfully, you know, you'd have a better time if I weren't there.

Michael: Hey, that's not true. Come on, we'll go over to Claraís farm and then we'll stop by Jasonís and see Mike -- see John. Mikey hasn't -- hasn't really spent any time with his uncle John yet.

Donna: Well, I -- I think that that's a great idea and --

Michael: Yeah, buddy.

Donna: I want you all to go have a wonderful time, ok? Really.

Michael: You're sure, huh?

Donna: Yeah, I'm positive. Just -- just have fun.

Michael: Well, partner --

Mikey: Donna.

Michael: I guess it's just -- yeah, that was Donna. But she ain't coming. It's just me and you.

Mikey: Yeah.

Michael: Yeah. She'll come around. Don't worry.

Zack: "And this should benefit you in your search for Mikey's parents. It's very important that his real parents are found before the child becomes too attached to those caring for it now. Thank you for your help." And there was $5,000 in the envelope.

Scott: Yeah. Do you get it?

Zack: Not really. Now, you didn't see anybody?

Scott: Yeah, I saw a woman. And whoever it is wants us to find Mikey's parents pretty bad. I just don't follow it, Zack. It doesn't make sense, doesn't fit.

Zack: And they thought this money would speed up the process.

Scott: I guess so. But it -- I mean, it can't, man. We got to turn this over to the cops. You know that.

Zack: Yeah, I know. Or we could blow it all on two round trips to Rio.

Scott: Zack, is that any way for an upstanding attorney to act, hmm?

Zack: No. But it's how an exhausted and stressed-out attorney dreams.

Scott: Why don't you take some time off this summer? I mean, I can handle myself around here.

Zack: No, man, I'm just a lot of talk, Scott. You know, I get withdrawal symptoms when I don't work 60-hour weeks, that's all.

Scott: Zack how does a week on a deserted beach on an island sound? Does that sound great?

Zack: I'd be too bored.

Scott: No, no, no, no. No, you wouldn't, trust me.

Zack: What would I do all by myself? I mean, I'd probably end up reading trial transcripts or something.

Scott: Zack, Zack -- you need to get away, man.

Zack: Ah, I'm just feeling sorry for myself, that's all.

Scott: Why?

Zack: Well, I guess the weather or something. You know, it's hot.

Scott: Right. What's up?

Zack: Well, it's the middle of June.

Scott: Yeah, it is.

Zack: June 14.

Scott: Yeah.

[Knock on door]

Zack: Come in.

Julie Ann: Surprise!

Scott: Hey, Julie Ann. How you doing?

Julie Ann: Happy birthday!

Zack: I knew I could count on you!

Julie Ann: Oh, you old man, you.

Scott: Oh, man. Why didn't you tell me it was your birthday?

Zack: Ah, well, I didn't want to cause a commotion. Ahem.

Scott: No, no, no. You've just been hinting at it for the last five minutes here, huh?

Julie Ann: Well, he's like that. Every year he pretends that his birthday is like every other day, but meanwhile, if you don't call him by dawn, he pouts for two weeks.

Zack: I do not pout!

Scott: Julie Ann, if you hadn't come over, I'd still be trying to figure out what he's been whining for.

Zack: You're supposed to be nice to people on their birthday.

Scott: Mm-hmm. So, Zack, how -- how old are you?

Julie Ann: Zack is --

Zack: Don't you dare. Oh, isn't that nice?

Sharlene: Listen, Rachel, I know that having the Frames in town as a group isn't your idea of a good time.

Rachel: Oh, listen, I've forgotten all about it.

Sharlene: No, listen. Between Janice and Steve --

Rachel: Sharlene, I try never to think about those times.

Sharlene: I know what my sister did to your life.

Rachel: Your sister had problems.

Sharlene: So do you see Jason much since he's been back?

Rachel: More, more than I did, now that Jamieís living here.

Sharlene: Ooh. How do you feel about that?

Rachel: It hurt at first. But Jamie didn't have his father for very long. And he's a Frame and he grew up surrounded by Corys, and I guess it's natural that he would want to get to know his father's family. I respect that.

Sharlene: Sounds like you've accepted it.

Rachel: I have. Jason's been good to Jamie.

Jason: Talking about me again, aren't you?

Rachel: You're back so soon?

Sharlene: Jason.

Jason: I'm just surprised to still see you here.

Rachel: Well, I'm getting reacquainted with your sister here.

Jason: That's right. She could use a hand getting settled in Bay City.

Sharlene: Oh, I could?

Jason: Well, sure. Rachel's lived here all her life. I'm sure she'd show you around.

Rachel: I'd love to do that, really. The town has changed a lot since you were here last.

Sharlene: If it's no trouble.

Rachel: It is no trouble.

Jason: Why would there be any trouble? Rachel doesn't harbor any grudges, do you?

Sharlene: Shut up, Jason! It's the only way to deal with him.

Jason: Hey, I'm just saying that while I was trying to get Stevenís company started up again, she gave me a lot of flak. Now that it's successful, I don't hear two words.

Rachel: The company is owned by my son. I have no say in what Jamie chooses to do with it.

Jason: I just think it's kind of neat that you changed your tune so drastically.

Rachel: Jason --

Sharlene: Look, considering this family's history with the Corys, I'd say that Rachel has been more than generous. So why don't you stop baiting her every time you open your mouth?

Jason: I'm not baiting her. I'm just proving my point.

Sharlene: No, no, you're not! You're just being ornery, Jason, and I'm surprised she hasn't connected with a right hook to your jaw!

Rachel: Sharlene, it's all right.

Sharlene: No, no, no, it isn't all right. You know, and I'll tell you what, big brother --

Jason: Yeah?

Sharlene: Another thing -- I don't need you to arrange tour guides for me, or a husband or a job for that matter! I can handle it all by myself. I always have. Is that understood?

Jason: You are such a Frame, and you could always talk me into a corner, sis.

Sharlene: Rachel, would you like another cup of coffee?

Rachel: Yes, I think I would.

Sharlene: Excuse me.

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Sharlene: Rachel Ė

Nicole: So, are you going to be staying in Bay City?

Drew: Well, I'm not really sure.

Nicole: Yeah, I don't know if it's really your speed. It's not like Zurich or Paris.

Drew: Well, I travel a lot, never live in the same place very long. That's what I wanted to talk to you about.

Nicole: Well, I mean, it must be a big change for someone like you to live in a place like this.

Drew: Well, actually, I find it kind of appealing.

Nicole: But you don't really like it, do you?

Drew: No, I find it kind of --

Nicole: Boring. I know, I know.

Drew: I was going to say relaxing.

Nicole: Really?

Drew: Nicole, why did you call me to come over here today?

Nicole: Well, I -- you know, I haven't seen you in a couple of days.

Drew: Oh, so you missed me?

Nicole: Well, I -- I like spending time with you.

Cass: Nicole, there's a problem with the -- oh, Drew. I -- I didn't know you were still here.

Drew: Of course you didnít.

Cass: I'm sorry to intrude.

Nicole: Don't you have work to do?

Cass: Yes, I do, but I just wanted to tell you to --

Nicole: Cass, I'll help you later.

Cass: Right. Excuse me. Sorry.

Nicole: Now, where were we?

Drew: You were telling me how much you enjoy being with me.

Nicole: I do, I do. You've always been a great friend.

Drew: And you know how much I like being with you?

Nicole: Well, you've told me.

[Cass coughs]

Nicole: But it's -- it's been very difficult, Drew.

Drew: Look, I told you I would never pressure you anymore.

Nicole: Oh, you've been so sweet. I just --

Drew: Is -- is that a new dress?

Nicole: Well, do you like it?

Drew: I think it's great.

Nicole: Well, thank you. It is. I -- it's a new design. I didn't know if I liked it myself, though.

Drew: Oh, I like this. All your designs are great, but this one is terrific.

Cass: I'm going to kill him.

Nicole: Why, thank you. Oh. So, anyway, where was I? What was I trying to say here? This is not easy for me.

Cass: But I'm going to kill her first.

Nicole: Um -- I --

Cass: Oh, stop mumbling! Out with it!

Nicole: Well, I -- it's -- you see, it's just -- well, Drew, it's me, and, well, it's --

Cass: Cass.

Drew: Is he listening to us?

Nicole: Cass?

Drew: Uh-huh.

Nicole: No, no. He's -- he's probably on the phone.

Cass: Right, right. Bye, now!

Drew: And you were saying?

Nicole: Um -- oh, right. I was saying it's just that -- so, how about this weather?

Cass: Oh, that's it. Oh, wow -- whew! Boy, is it hot in here. Are you hot?

Nicole: Cass --

Cass: Why don't you go turn up the air conditioning? Drew must be melting away in here.

Drew: No, actually, I'm fine.

Nicole: Why do you keep --?

Cass: What?

Nicole: Stop interrupting or I'm never going to get through this!

Cass: You can't even string three words together. I'm going to tell him.

Nicole: Oh, no, you're not!

Cass: Oh, yes, I am. You can't seem to handle this.

Nicole: And you --

Drew: Would somebody please tell me what's going on here?

Julie Ann: Zack, you know mom and dad are planning a great big birthday dinner.

Scott: Now, wait a minute, wait a minute. I mean, this guy's been making a big fuss about his birthday. He's sure got a lot going on.

Zack: Oh, don't get me wrong. I just know what's going to happen at the dinner table tonight, believe me.

Julie Ann: If it's any consolation, I told mom to tell dad not to ask if you're bringing a date.

Zack: Great.

Scott: Ah -- I get it.

Zack: Oh, what do you get?

Scott: Well, you just don't want to have to go over and eat dinner with your folks and to have to face the music about not having a date.

Julie Ann: It's worse than that.

Zack: I'm getting a headache already.

Scott: I don't understand. What are you talking about?

Julie Ann: See, our father has rather old-fashioned ideas about dating.

Scott: Of course he does, my dear. He's your father.

Julie Ann: You see, when we bring a date, he pulls us aside --

Zack: Not too far aside. He makes sure the date could hear.

Julie Ann: Right, and then he says, "So, Julie Ann --"

Zack: "Son --"

Julie Ann and Zack: "Is it serious?"

Scott: Are you guys serious?

Zack: Do we look like we're kidding?

Julie Ann: Zack's right. The man is impossible. I won't bring a date home because I'm afraid he'll scare them away.

Scott: Well, it doesn't look like you're going to have to have any worries about that tonight, does it?

Zack: Why?

Scott: Because you don't have a date.

Zack: You enjoy rubbing it in, don't you?

Julie Ann: That's actually worse.

Scott: Yeah?

Julie Ann: Mm-hmm.

Zack: Right. I mean, if I don't bring a date home tonight, then he'll be saying, "Son, aren't they any nice women where you work?"

Scott: Well, that's a legitimate question.

Zack: Well, yes, it is. But then I'll tell him, "dad, no, I don't have opportunities to meet women."

Scott: Hmm.

Zack: And he'll tell me, "Zack, a man your age should've settled down by now."

Zack and Julie Ann: "When I was 19, I had already married your mother."

Scott: Oh, man.

Julie Ann: That's dad in a nutshell.

Scott: Yeah, well, maybe he just wants to make sure that you guys are happy, that's all.

Zack: Yeah, he means well, but he's driving us crazy.

Scott: Hmm. Well, what's the verdict going to be? I mean, is it better with or without a date?

Zack: Huh. You want to come over for dinner tonight?

Scott: What are you having?

Jason: Jo! Josie! Hi. It's a little loud, don't you think? You're going to go deaf. We got company.

Josie: Sorry. I couldn't hear.

Sharlene: What a surprise.

Jason: Uh, Josie Watts, Rachel Cory.

Josie: Hi. Nice to meet you.

Rachel: Nice to meet you. Well, there's a resemblance.

Sharlene: She's my joy.

Jason: And she's my pain. I think that was just a bit excessively loud.

Josie: Oh, Uncle Jason, don't be such a stuffed shirt.

Sharlene: Josie, be respectful.

Jason: Hey, that's the only time anybody ever called me a stuffed shirt.

Sharlene: Where -- where have you been all this time?

Josie: Oh, moseying around the place. It's huge.

Jason: It's great, isn't it?

Josie: Yeah, if you like grass and horse fertilizer.

Sharlene: Aha. Josie's not quite used to the farmland yet.

Jason: In a couple weeks she's going to have her own hands out there in that horse fertilizer.

Josie: With these hands? No, don't count on it.

Sharlene: One step at a time, Jason.

[Knock on door]

Jason: Come in.

Michael: Hey, hey, hey!

Jason: Hey!

Michael: Hey!

Jason: Hi!

Michael: Who's that?

Jason: I bet you've grown --

Michael: Hi, everybody.

Jason: Two feet since I've seen you.

Mikey: Yeah!

Jason: Yeah.

Michael: Oh, not quite two feet. Hey, Rachel.

Rachel: Hi, Michael.

Michael: Oh, I'm sorry. I seem to be interrupting here, huh?

Jason: No, no, no. Uh -- Sharlene, my sister --

Sharlene: Michael, nice to meet you.

Jason: Michael Hudson and this is her daughter, Josie.

Josie: Hi.

Michael: Hi.

Jason: Hi. They're going to live with me for a while.

Michael: Really? Well, it's about time you brought your family out of the woodwork, huh?

Sharlene: Are you Clara Hudsonís son?

Michael: As a matter of fact, I am. We were just over at her farm. I was showing old Mikey here the animals.

Josie: He is beautiful. Oh! How old is he?

Michael: Well, we think he's about 2 years old.  Oh -- he knows that. I say "we think" because we're just -- my wife and I are guardians of his. Well, the real story behind his parents is just too long of a story to go into now, but --

Sharlene: Well, he sure looks happy.

Michael: He's a very happy kid. I tell you what -- we came over to see John. Is he around anywhere?

Jason: Well, he's somewhere outside. I'll -- I'll go run him up.

Michael: Terrific.

Josie: Give me my nose back!

Michael: Oh, it's the nose game, is it?

Josie: Hey, you! Hey!

Michael: It's the nose game.

Josie: Got your nose. I got your nose -- oh, oh! Got your nose!

Michael: Oh, no! Oh, no!

Chris: You lose something?

John: Oh, my tool kit. I lent it to Jason and he said he left it out here somewhere. He probably planted it in one of these poison ivy bushes he's got out here.

Chris: What does it look like? I'll help you look for it.

John: Leave it to Jason to lose it. What are you doing out here anyway?

Chris: I'm looking for you.

John: For what? There's not a problem? Has there been another accident at the site? What?

Chris: No, no, no, no. Everything's fine. I wanted to talk to you.

John: About what?

Chris: Well, I know my job description hasn't been exactly precise.

John: No, your job description is very precise -- you're the secretary.

Chris: I've done a lot more than office work since I came on.

John: Yeah, yeah, I know that. But we've already decided you're going to run the office. That's a big job. You don't have time for anything else, ok?

Chris: Yes, I do.

John: You do? Like what?

Chris: John, I'm good enough to be on that crew.

John: Oh, come on. Now, haven't we already had this discussion?

Chris: Yeah, and I've thought about it. I'm willing to -- I'll take a cut in salary.

John: Well, that might work. That's a good idea. I mean, since you seem to have all of this time to be wandering around the farm all day long, I think that I could probably pay you as a part-time employee.

Chris: No, I'll take a cut in salary in order to work on the crew.

John: Now, let me get this straight -- you want to take a cut in salary to work manual labor?

Chris: Right.

John: You've been in the sun too long.

Chris: I'm willing to take less pay if you'll let me have a chance at what I do best.

John: You're doing what you do best. I think you're a great secretary.

Chris: I don't want to be a secretary!

John: Well, look, what is it with you anyway?

Chris: You know I'm good enough. You just don't want to admit it because then you'd have to admit that I am better than half the men working on that hospice as it is!

John: Half the men? Really?

Chris: You know what I mean! Why don't you give me a chance to prove it to you!

Jason: Hold on. What's all this yelling about? Hey, hey.

Chris: Jason --

Jason: Yeah?

Chris: Would you talk to this man? He needs to give me a chance on that crew. I will prove I'm good enough.

Jason: I -- he supervises the crew. I don't get in that area. I won't step on his toes.

John: Smart move.

Chris: Oh, I'm going to scream!

Jason: I -- I had fun the other tonight.

Chris: Huh?

Jason: At our date. I had a good time. How about you?

Chris: It was very nice.

John: Tell me -- did you wear your hardhat after dessert?

Chris: I don't know why I bother.

Jason: You want to do it again?

Chris: What?

Jason: Would you like to go out with me for dinner again?

Chris: Uh --

Jason: You're smooth, Jason. Real smooth. Your timing is impeccable. I'm here with Peggy Brown

Nicole: Drew, I just have to come right out and say this.

Drew: Are you sure you want him here?

Nicole: Cass is part of the reason I asked you to come over.

Cass: A big part.

Drew: Ok. Go ahead.

Nicole: I asked you to come over here because I didn't want you to think I was misleading you. I care about you very much, Drew, but I --

Cass: What Nicole is trying to say, Drew --

Nicole: I love Cass. I'm sorry.

Cass: Well, what are you sorry about that for?

Nicole: Do you understand?

Drew: Well, I'm not really surprised. I don't quite understand, but I'm not really surprised.

Nicole: I never meant to lead you on.

Drew: No, no, no, no. This is my fault.

Nicole: Oh, no it's not.

Cass: It can be his fault if he wants it --

Nicole: Shh.

Drew: Look, I gave up on us the first time four years ago. I thought we could try again. It's just too much has happened to us.

Nicole: I want to be your friend.

Drew: You don't have to say that.

Nicole: Drew --

Drew: Look, Nicole, I want you to be happy. I always want you to be happy.

Cass: Thank you. We will.

Drew: And if you ever need anything, you know how to reach me.

Cass: She wonít.

Drew: Take care of yourself.

Nicole: You, too.

Cass: Ahem.

Drew: Goodbye.

Cass: Ciao, baby.

Nicole: Goodbye.

Michael: He seems to like you an awful lot.

Josie: You know, I was wondering -- do you need a babysitter?

Michael: Well, we actually -- we have a housekeeper named Bridget who kind of watches over him, and my daughter Victoria is very close to him. But I'll tell you what, if we ever do need somebody, I'd be glad to call you.

Josie: That would be great.

Rachel: Josie, I have a daughter, Amanda, and she just had a new baby. She and her husband are looking for a babysitter.

Josie: Oh, a newborn! I'd love that. Could I call them sometime?

Rachel: Sure. I've listed with an employment agency, but I will tell them that you come highly recommended.

Josie: Oh, that would be great.

Sharlene: She really is great with little kids.

Rachel: Well, I can see that. I'm afraid I'm going to have to go.

Sharlene: Oh, I'll walk you to the door.

Rachel: No, you don't need to do that. It was good to see you.

Sharlene: You, too.

Rachel: We'll see each other again soon.

Sharlene: All right, I hope so.

Rachel: Nice to meet you, honey.

Josie: Nice to meet you.

Rachel: Bye, Michael.

Michael: Bye, Rachel. I'll tell you what, anytime you'd like to come by and visit, feel free.

Josie: Ok, I will.

Michael: Oh, you like that, huh? You like that? Hey, john, how are you?

John: Hi, Mike. How you doing?

Michael: Good to see you, man.

John: Good to see you.

Michael: Yeah.

John: Jason said there'd be a lot of people around here.

Josie: Here you go. Oops.

Michael: This is Sharlene, Jasonís sister.

John: Well, I'll be darned.

Michael: This is Josie --

Josie: Hi.

Michael: His niece.

John: Hi.

Michael: And I'm sorry, I don't know you.

Chris: I'm Chris Macaleer. I work for Jason and john.

Sharlene: Hi, Chris.

Michael: You work for them?

Chris: Hi.

Michael: What's he like to work for?

Chris: Don't ask.

Michael: Really? That's kind of what I thought.

John: It's nice to be so well-liked.

Michael: Oh, you're liked.

Sharlene: Yeah, speaking of, where is Jason?

John: He stopped by the barn for something. I don't know.

Chris: He was acting real mysterious.

Sharlene: Well, that's my brother.

John: Sharlene. Boy, it's been a long, long time.

Sharlene: I think so.

John: Jason mentioned that you might be coming by. You going to stay here with him for a while?

Sharlene: Yeah, for better or worse.

John: Oh, I see. Probably for worse. I know I couldn't do it.

Sharlene: Well, I think that that's probably because you're a lot like him.

John: I think I've just been insulted.

Sharlene: No.

John: Huh?

Jason: All right, look out!

Michael: Uh-oh.

Sharlene: Hey --

Jason: Look out.

Sharlene: Oh, what are you doing?

Jason: Make way.

Michael: What's going on here?

John: What have you got there?

Jason: Well, I heard there's a little kid in here that wanted to see some farm animals.

Sharlene: Jason Frame, if that baby pig is in that box --

Jason: It's a baby elephant, actually.

Sharlene: A baby elephant.


Michael: What's that noise? What's that noise? I hear something.

Sharlene: Oh!

Michael: Wow!

Jason: Look at that.

Josie: Oh!

John: Well, Jason, I guess if the old construction business doesn't work out, we can always go into chicken farming, huh?

Michael: You remember when mom brought home a whole bunch of these when we were kids?

John: Yeah, I remember. We hid them all over the house.

Sharlene: Yeah -- no, I don't want to hear this. I don't want to hear. What time is it?

Michael: It kinds of looks like you, don't you think?

John: It's beer time.

Michael: Beer.

Sharlene: Yeah, it's late enough for a few beers.

Michael: That'd be great, yeah.

Sharlene: All right, great. Coming right up.

Michael: Hey, guy.

Josie: They're so soft.

Chris: What is the fascination? Everybody has to run and see Jason on a tractor.

John: I think that you and I are used to seeing him tooling around on that thing. For them it's a real treat.

Chris: There's something always going on around here, isn't there?

Mikey: Up here!

John: Jason likes it like that.

Mikey: Up here.

Chris: You know, I never thought of him as a family man.

John: Yeah. I think he always felt like he was somewhat of an outsider before, even though this is his family's farm. But that's all going to change.

Mikey: A, b --

John: Now he's got his family moving in with him, the construction work and all.

Chris: Listen, speaking of the construction work --

Mikey: I got it!

John: Yeah, I knew you were going to say that, and let's not, not in front of the child.

Chris: You know, this is a great little kid.

John: Yep.

Chris: He certainly gets a lot of attention.

John: Well, they bounce back better than we do sometimes.

Chris: Listen, I think I'm going to get a beer.

[Tractor engine runs]

John: What's that?

Chris: Oh, it's Jason playing Mr. Green jeans.

[Sound of helicopter]

Chris: I wonder if Jason has ever thought about being a farmer instead of a construction worker. Of course, he'd have to get up even earlier. John? Is something wrong?

John: You're going to be ok, Mikey. You're going to be ok.

Nicole: You know, you didn't help the situation popping in every two seconds.

Cass: Well, you were being too easy on the creep.

Nicole: Oh, yeah? Well, I've never been too good at kiss-offs, Cass.

Cass: I know, and I hope you never have to suffer that ever, ever again.

Nicole: It's amazing to me that I put up with you.

Cass: You love me.

Nicole: Yes, I do.

Cass: You see, I add spice to your life.

Nicole: Yeah, that's one way of putting it.

Cass: I have a wonderful idea.

Nicole: Uh-uh. I have to draw the line somewhere, Cass. I will not sneak into Drewís suite and short-sheet his bed.

Cass: You're starting to think like me. Now, that's --

Cass and Nicole: Scary!

Nicole: So, what's your idea?

Cass: Well, I think we have cause to celebrate, don't you?

Nicole: Yes, I do.

Cass: So I was thinking maybe we could go back to the place where it all began.

Nicole: The lagoon?

Cass: No. The place where it almost all began.

Nicole: Oh -- Haverhill manor.

Cass: That's the place.

Nicole: Right now?

Cass: Well, I'd hate to see this dress go to waste. What do you say?

Nicole: I think it's a great idea.

Cass: I told you.

Nicole: Just give me a few minutes to pack a bag, ok?

Cass: Ok.

Nicole: I love you.

Cass: I love you, too. Hurry up.

Nicole: Mm-hmm, ok.

[Cass hums]

Donna: Uh, yeah -- hello? I -- I wanted to make sure that you -- you got the package that I left. Look, I -- I can't tell you that. Let's just say I'm a concerned citizen, ok? I want to make sure you find that little boy's real parents. Well, obviously you haven't done enough or you would know something by now! Well -- look, I'm not asking you to do anything illegal. Just -- just help -- just -- he deserves to find his real family. No, I don't -- I don't know him personally. I'm just -- I just care about him, that's all. Now, look, if you want to get in contact with me, then -- then use the P.O. Box that's in the letter. Just -- just find his parents.

Michael: You want to tell me what the heck is going on? (Female announcer) whatís in your ice cream?

Michael: Donna, who were you talking to?

Donna: Zack Edwards, but he didn't know that it was me.

Michael: I don't understand. What -- what are you talking about?

Donna: All right. All right, you know how difficult it's been for me with Mikey here.

Michael: Well, yeah, but I thought it was getting better, Donna.

Donna: Well, I'm trying, Michael. I'm still trying, really. It's just that I thought that if the authorities found his real parents, then we wouldn't have to deal with this problem anymore.

Michael: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. I don't consider Mikey a problem.

Donna: I know. I know how you feel. But I canít. I just can't get close to him, and I don't think he cares about me either.

Michael: Well, I think he does, but -- you want to tell me what you were talking to Zack about?

Donna: I took a letter to him with cash in it earlier today.

Michael: For what?

Donna: I wanted him to use the money to find Mikey's real parents. I mean, the police aren't doing anything.

Michael: Now, wait a minute, Donna. I'm not so sure we want Mikey's real parents found. They haven't come forward to claim him. They obviously don't care about him.

Donna: No, wait a minute, you don't know that for sure. Michael, he needs our help. You said yourself that he is our responsibility now. We owe that to him.

Michael: Ok, fine, fine, fine. Maybe I don't know the whole story, so maybe you're right. But why were you doing that?

Donna: Because I didn't want anybody to get the wrong idea.

Michael: No, I mean why were you trying to keep it from me?

Donna: Michael, I -- I didn't really mean to. It's just that I didn't know any other way to do it. I don't -- I'm sorry.

Michael: Donna, we promised each other to always tell the truth.

Donna: I know. I know. I didn't mean to, and I was -- I was going to tell you. I don't like going behind your back.

Michael: Well, that's exactly what you did.

Donna: Michael, I'm sorry. And look, please -- please don't get angry with me about this. I didn't want to hurt you or Mikey. Wait a minute -- where is he?

Michael: I left him over at Jasonís. Vicky called and said she'd pick him up and bring him back here in time for dinner.

Donna: Well, that's good.

Michael: We had a really good time today.

Donna: I'm glad.

Michael: I missed you. I wished you had been there.

Donna: Michael, I'm sorry. I didn't want to or mean to lie to you.

Michael: Look, Donna, don't play games with me. If you want this marriage to work, you tell me the truth. Got it?

Sharlene: I have a real good feeling about this place.

Josie: You do?

Sharlene: Yeah. Yeah, I think we've got a good shot at a clean slate here.

Josie: Why?

Sharlene: I don't know. I guess it just feels like home being back on this farm again, even if your uncle Jason is a pain in the neck.

Josie: Yeah, he's a little jumpy.

Sharlene: Well, he's impatient. He's just like my father.

Josie: It's so weird having a man around all the time.

Sharlene: I think it'll be good for you.

Josie: Well, I'm not used to it. I'll have to remember not to come bolting out of the bathroom next time I forget a towel.

Sharlene: You were never very modest, were you?

Josie: Well, now I have to be.

Sharlene: Yeah. Like I said, I think it'll be good for you. Ok.

Josie: You know, Mom, I never missed not having a father around.

Sharlene: Oh, yes, you did. You just don't realize it yet.

Josie: No, I mean it. You've been really great -- most of the time.

Sharlene: Oh. Why, thank you, Josephine. I think that's the nicest thing you've ever said to me.

Josie: Well, don't get used to it. I'll be nasty as can be tomorrow when that rooster goes off at 5:00 A.M.

Sharlene: You are a good kid, Josie -- most of the time. Now clean up. Scoot.

Nicole: Well, should we tell someone where we'll be?

Cass: Nah!

Nicole: Oh, well, you don't have to twist my arm.

Cass: We'll check in tomorrow. Are you excited?

Nicole: Oh, I am. I love it when you get like this.

Cass: Like what?

Nicole: You know -- spontaneous --

Cass: Oh, really?

Nicole: Romantic -- yeah.

Cass: Well, that's me.

Nicole: Well, so, let's go.

Cass: There's a limo outside.

Nicole: Oh, I'm just going to pretend like we can afford all of this.

Cass: You're learning.

Nicole: I know. This is going to be great.

Cass: And full of surprises.

Nicole: Oh -- don't tell me, ok?

Cass: Well, if you insist, I wonít.

Nicole: Um -- just maybe one little hint.

Cass: No, no, no, no. You asked me to not tell you, so I'm not going to tell you. Just go.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: Go. I'll close up and I'll get the bags.

Nicole: Ok. Hurry.
