Sharlene: Oh, I know times are rough, Jason, but air conditioners and dishwashers are not luxuries. Ugh.
Josie: See you, Mom.
Sharlene: Where do you think you're going?
Josie: To work.
Josie: I told you, Amanda fowler hired me to be her new nanny.
Josie: Don't get uptight, Mom.
Sharlene: Look, Josie, I know that I have not said too much about this, but it does not exactly send ripples of pleasure up and down my spine to think of you changing diapers.
Josie: I knew it. I knew you were going to say something like that.
Sharlene: This is not a great time for me, I'm sorry.
Josie: Well, this isn't exactly a great time for me, either, and if I can't go over to Sam and Amandaís, I'm going to go crazy!
Sharlene: I know you are, all right?
Josie: You know, I don't know them very well, but they seem like they're very nice people. And at least they treat me like a human being.
Sharlene: And I don't? All right, go on. Go on over there. Maybe you can use the money you make to pay back your uncle Jason for all the phone bills you've been running up.
Josie: Why don't you just put a pay phone in my bedroom?
Sharlene: It's not your bedroom! This is his house! He lets us stay here!
Josie: And I hate every damn minute of it!
Josie: I mean it! I hate this house! And maybe you don't mind Uncle Jason treating us like freeloaders, but I do!
Sharlene: Don't you use that tone of voice with me!
Josie: In fact, the only thing I can stand around here is talking on the phone!
Jason: Don't ever let me hear you use that tone of voice with your mother again.
Cass: Man, it is going to pour any second.
Nicole: I know, thank goodness this place is open. Wow, look at it.
Cass: This gives new meaning to the word "quaint." Huh. Hey, they have some nice stuff in here.
Cass: Wonder why there's nobody around watching it.
Nicole: Cass, we're in the country now. People don't have to look over their shoulder like they do in the city.
Cass: Yeah, but if we don't find a salesperson, how are you going to buy all the things that I know you're going to want to buy?
Nicole: Very funny.
Cass: Why, thank you. I thought it was a little clever. I'll check the place out.
Cass: Going to miss me?
Nicole: Yeah, a lot. You know, I really don't think you have to check this place out. Ah!
Donna: Um, hi. It's your mother.
Marley: Oh. Donna, hi. How are you?
Donna: Oh, I'm fine. You were expecting Jake?
Marley: Uh, no. I just --
Donna: Honey, I didn't think he knew where you were.
Marley: He doesnít.
Donna: Oh. Oh, I see. Then I guess you were hoping that he loved you enough to search and find you, huh?
Marley: No, it's not that. It's just that Jake knows about the beach house and I thought maybe he would think to find me here, that's all.
Donna: Hmm. Well, it sounds to me like you were waiting for him.
Marley: Donna, by coming out here, I wasn't trying to force Jake to do anything.
Donna: Oh, right, right. Well, that's what I told him.
Marley: You talked to him?
Donna: Yes. Yes, I did. Do you want to know what he had to say?
Marley: Well, yes. He's my husband.
Donna: Well, actually, he was just rather penitent about something.
Marley: But he didn't tell you what?
Donna: No. Honey, why don't you tell me?
Marley: Donna, I canít.
Donna: Look, I -- I'm not asking you to tell me just out of idle curiosity.
Marley: I know, I know, but what happened is between Jake and me. Now, I know that Jake has made some mistakes, and I'm sure I've made some, too, and if Jake is very sorry for his --
Donna: Look, Marley --
Donna: Look, I know that you're all by yourself out there, and I know you, you get lonely. I just don't want you to force yourself to do something that you might regret.
Marley: Donna, please --
Donna: No, look, look, let me finish. Before you make any kind of final decision, there's something you should know about Jake.
Harry: Hi. So what do you do? You read the papers? You make sure it was 92 degrees before you conk out?
Jake: Would you happen to know where I could find the owner?
Harry: You already did.
Harry: You think Wayne Newton has to fix his own air conditioner? You bet your sweet condenser he doesnít. He just calls the landlord! He gets services!
Jake: Yeah, I was wondering if I could -- if you could tell me something.
Harry: Yeah, yeah, sure, if I can.
Jake: This woman who sang here last night, the one --
Harry: Tiffany Simone.
Jake: That's it.
Harry: Her real name is probably Effie Leiderkratz.
Jake: You have to admit the young lady can sing, though, can't she?
Harry: You're telling me.
Jake: Um, how did you -- how did you latch onto talent like that?
Harry: I'd like to say it's because of my incredible business savvy.
Harry: The woman walked in and asked if she could sing.
Jake: And your instincts told you that she was going to be that good?
Harry: My instincts told me she was going to bomb, but it's the only thing I had going for me that night.
Jake: Right. Do you have an exclusive with her?
Harry: Do I have an exclusive? That would be smart.
Harry: That'd be good business. Hey, hey, hey, why you want to know?
Jake: I just -- you're a character. I'm just getting started here.
Harry: Listen, kid, if you know something about the business, then stay out of it. You know, I used to have a hardware store. It was slow but steady. All I had to do was stand around and measure out 10-penny nails, listen to jazz on the radio station. My wife says to me, she says, "you listen to music so much, why don't you make a living at it?"
Jake: Well, it sounds like you married a very smart lady.
Harry: Smart? I got a landlord that's trying to kick me out; I got an air conditioner that quits on the hottest day of the year! I got a girl singer that wants to be the mystery lady! Hardware's starting to sound pretty good to me.
Jake: Does she give you much trouble -- your wife?
Harry: No. No, she doesnít. Hmm.
Jake: Doesn't sound like you have many problems. You have a nice day. I'm sorry I took up your time, all right?
Harry: Hey, no problem. You want a beer or something?
Jake: No, uh-uh, I got another stop to make.
Harry: Hey, hey, kid, kid? Hey, kid, listen, listen, man, if you want to do something in this business, go to L.A., Go to New York. Those are the only places you can make it.
Jake: I don't know.
Harry: There's not one good reason to stay in this town.
Jake: On the contrary, I have the best reason in the entire world. Have a good day.
Harry: Hey. All right, come to papa! Oh, yeah!
Sharlene: Radio says it's going to get up to 90 today.
Jason: I don't see how you let that kid talk to you like that.
Sharlene: You know, I just hate those cheerful radio weather guys. You know, they tell you it's going to get up to 92 with 90% humidity, and you know they're just sitting in their air-conditioned offices.
Jason: Sharlene, I'm trying to tell you that the kid is just acting out --
Sharlene: Jason, please just stay out of it.
Jason: You and me acted that way with ma, I tell you, she would've rapped us good, right? Right.
Sharlene: Yeah, well, I am not sure ma had all the answers on child-rearing.
Jason: She would've at least been able to take care of this one, I can tell you that much.
Sharlene: I am sorry if she makes you mad.
Jason: She doesn't have any respect, Sharlie.
Sharlene: She is a really good kid, Jason. I cannot tell you how much she has helped me through, but she is a teenaged girl. They're -- they're like kindling. All it takes is one spark to set them off.
Jason: If you have to treat your own kids like you're walking on egg shells, it's because you did something.
Sharlene: It was my fault, Jason. It was my fault. She goes out and gets herself a job, and what do I do? I give her grief because it's babysitting for Rachelís daughter.
Jason: Working for Amanda?
Sharlene: Yes. Speaking of Rachel, why does she give you such a hard time about using the Frame Construction name? I mean, if Steven were here --
Jason: I'm wondering about Josieís attitude and how she got it, that's what's important.
Sharlene: I know I'm no pushover and neither is she, but, Jason, try to see things from her point of view. I moved her away from everything she knows.
Jason: You sorry you came back here?
Sharlene: Oh, no. I like it here. And I really appreciate you letting us come --
Jason: You don't have to say that.
Sharlene: No, yes, I do.
Jason: No, you donít.
Sharlene: L.A. Is no place to raise a girl her age and I am very grateful I had you to come to. But she just doesn't understand.
Jason: We've both got to face the fact that Josieís always been one piece of work. Hmm. Jeez.
Sharlene: I was just --
Sharlene: I was just thinking about when you came to visit us. She was about 2. You were on leave from the navy.
Jason: Wait a minute, when I wore my dress whites because I wanted to make a big impression?
Sharlene: And you slept late the next morning and she colored all over them with her marking pen!
Jason: It's not funny. You should've been rougher on her then, too.
Sharlene: You didn't see your face!
Jason: My face? Hey, you should've seen my chief petty officer's face. That was a face.
John: Jason, I thought you were going out to the site.
Jason: Hey, John. I am. I'm waiting for Al. I was going to give him a lift out to the site.
John: Yeah, but the crew is out there. Everyone is on the clock, no one's working.
Jason: I don't know what you're talking about.
John: Look, what's the deal here? Am I the only one that cares about this project?
Cass: You ok?
Nicole: Yeah, yeah, fine.
Man: Sorry I kind of sneaked up on you like that.
Nicole: It wasn't that. It was that thing on his head.
Cass: What, you have a mortal fear of armored helmets?
Nicole: No, I couldn't see his face.
Man: Oh, yeah. I needed both hands for the spears. I wanted to get inside before the rain started.
Cass: Yeah, rust could be a real problem for you.
Nicole: The door was open. I hope you don't mind that we just came in here.
Man: Oh, heck, no. Only time I ever get browsers is when the weather's bad. Look to your hearts' content.
Nicole: Don't laugh.
Cass: What, an old man in a helmet? How terrifying for you.
Nicole: Well, you weren't here. He looked like some kind of an apparition.
Cass: From a bus and truck company of "Macbeth."
Cass: What are you up to? What are you doing?
Nicole: I'm looking for something to buy.
Nicole: I don't want to make him angry.
Cass: Oh, Nicole.
Nicole: You know, Cass, things have gotten slightly weird ever since we've been here. Now, I don't want to tempt fate any more than we already have. We are going to buy something and then we are going to leave, even if we have to throw it away the minute we walk out the door.
Nicole: What? What's that?
Cass: Hmm. If we have to buy something, I think I found just the item here.
Nicole: I don't believe it.
Cass: I thought you liked Victoriana.
Nicole: Those are Victorian ladies on swings with no clothes on.
Cass: Hmm, and don't they look like they're having the best time. Ow! Ooh! Goodbye, girls. What other little tidbits do we have here?
Cass: Nicole? Look at this.
Nicole: What now, Kamasutra?
Cass: No, no. Seriously, come here. Look.
Nicole: Oh, yeah. Oh, that's beautiful.
Cass: And look at the initial.
Nicole: It's an N.
Cass: [British accent] By George, I think we've got it.
Nicole: By George. How much does it cost?
Cass: [Normal voice] I don't know, I can't find a price. Uh-oh. We're going to have to ask him.
Nicole: Uh-oh. All right, but just don't haggle. Give him what he's asking and then let's get out of here, ok?
Cass: Don't haggle? He'll be disappointed. They expect that kind of thing.
Nicole: Cass, I'm telling you, this place is starting to give me the creeps.
Cass: Ok. Come on. Ahem.
Cass: We found something.
Man: You're kidding.
Cass: I wouldn't kid you about a thing like that. I can't find a price on it, though. It's not really in perfect condition, so I figured you might be able to give us a little break on it.
Nicole: We'll give you whatever you're asking.
Cass: Nicole. She's such a kidder.
Man: I don't know what to ask.
Cass: Uh-oh. It's worth a bundle, huh?
Man: Can't say for sure. I've never seen it before.
Julie Ann: Listen -- so did you get the lowdown on Ronnie?
Amanda: Yes. She is definitely single --
Julie Ann: Mm-hmm?
Amanda: And I don't think she's seeing anybody.
Julie Ann: Oh, great.
Amanda: You going to hook her up with Zack?
Julie Ann: I'm certainly going to try.
Amanda: Such a good sister.
Julie Ann: "Good sister" my eye. Since he stopped seeing Delia, he wants to go with me everywhere.
Sam: Hey, wait a minute. You two laughing at us?
Ronnie: Look, I'd better quit monopolizing this baby and get myself back to work.
Sam: Come here.
Amanda: Oh, wait a minute. Before you go, we have something for you.
Sam: Actually, we made it for you.
Sam: I hope you like it, but if you don't, do me a favor -- don't say anything, ok?
Ronnie: Oh. Oh, this is wonderful.
Amanda: It's going to be worth a lot of money one day, too. It's an original Fowler.
Ronnie: Did you do this?
Sam: Yeah. Yeah, I kept thinking about how good you were to us.
Amanda: You must have wiped my forehead 500 times and never complained.
Ronnie: Complained? You were doing the hard part. Oh, I'm going to miss you people, all three of you, including this original Fowler. Look at you.
Amanda: Maybe not.
Sam: Wait a minute, I know that look. What's going on?
[Knock on door]
Amanda: Nothing, dear.
Sam: She's getting into this marriage bit a little bit too much. She sounds like June cleaver more every day.
Amanda: Grandma! Hi!
Ada: Hi! Somebody asked me what to give the new mommy and I said dinner. Would you settle for lunch?
Amanda: You bet I would.
Ada: Hi, sweetheart.
Ada: Ah! It's my ticket to get in to see our baby, and I see I'm not alone.
Sam: Hey, look, Alli! It's great-grandma!
Ada: You get one more of those, pal, and that's it. Hey. Hey, beautiful. She's gotten bigger.
Amanda: Yep, she's gained 10 ounces since I brought her home.
Ronnie: I'd better be going.
Ada: Good girl. Was it something I said?
Ronnie: Oh, Ada.
Amanda: Grandma, do you have your fried chicken in here?
Ada: You betcha.
Amanda: Why doesn't everybody stay for lunch?
Julie Ann: Well, I couldn't impose.
Ada: Ok, I'll start fixing the plates.
Amanda: I'll help.
Ada: You don't have to.
Amanda: No, I want to. I have to ask you something anyway.
Sam: Ronnie, I hope we're not holding you up.
Ronnie: Oh, no. Look, my shift doesn't start until 4:00.
Julie Ann: 4:00? That means you mustn't have a lot of time for a social life.
Ronnie: Unfortunately, that's true.
Julie Ann: Really?
Amanda: Have you heard from mom?
Ada: Yeah. I just got a post card this morning of a statue of a naked man. I got to talk to her about that.
Amanda: She sent me one of a mother and child.
Ada: Well, that's more like it.
Amanda: She didn't say much, though.
Ada: Well, she never does. "I'm fine, I hope you're the same." That's about it.
Amanda: Mine talked about the trattorias.
Ada: The what?
Amanda: I think she's mad at me.
Amanda: Well, you remember the first day that we brought the baby home?
Amanda: Well, she was having so much fun with Alli. The only thing was Sam and I really wanted to be alone with the baby for the first day. So after you left, Sam kind of made up an excuse to get her out of the apartment just for a little while.
Amanda: Well, when she left, she didn't close the door, and when she came back, we didn't hear her.
Ada: And she overheard you and Sam say that you were glad she was gone.
Amanda: She told you, didn't she?
Amanda: How'd you know?
Ada: When Jamie was first born, he had a grandma who couldn't take a hint, either.
Amanda: Not you?
Ada: Your mother had to do the same thing with me.
Amanda: So you think she understands?
Ada: I know she does.
Man: I feel kind of funny selling something I never knew I had.
Cass: Well, it's no big deal. I mean, a sale's a sale, right?
Man: What if somebody left it here?
Cass: Well, then judging by the dust on it, I would say they'd given it up for lost.
Nicole: No, it's ok, Cass.
Man: I just don't know.
Nicole: I'll just go look around a little more.
Cass: I want that brooch.
Man: Yes, I know you do, but --
Cass: You see the woman over there? She never asks for a thing. She'd give you anything she had if she loved you and never ask for anything in return. If she wants that brooch, she's going to have it. Do you get my meaning?
Man: Sounds like a pretty good woman.
Cass: She is. She's the best. And tonight I'm going to ask her to marry me, but I'd like to give her this first.
Man: I guess I could probably come up with a price.
Cass: Now you're talking.
Cass: Thank you.
Nicole: Oh, you got it?
Cass: I told you I would, didn't I?
Nicole: Oh, thank you! Oh, I really love this.
Cass: And I really love you. Oh. Excuse us.
Cass: Why don't we take this act out of here?
Man: Raining cats and dogs now. You're going to need this.
Cass: Oh, no, we wonít. Thanks anyway. Come on.
Nicole: Cass, it really is pouring outside.
Cass: What are you afraid of? You think somebody's going to see us and think that we're doing something romantic?
Nicole: Let's go.
Cass: Let's go. Bye-bye.
Cass: Hey, wait for me!
Marley: You never did like Jake much, did you?
Donna: Oh, honey, look, I am just telling you all of this because I know you're hurting.
Marley: Well, I think that you're exaggerating this whole thing too much.
Donna: Marley -- it was another woman. I mean, what happened in Los Angeles was another woman, wasn't it?
Marley: I've got to go, Donna.
Donna: No, no, no, listen to me; I don't want you to go back to him because you're lonely. I mean, he is only going to hurt you again!
Marley: Um, I can't talk to you about this anymore. I've really got to go.
Donna: Marley --
Jake: Sounds like you were really giving my wife an earful.
Donna: What are you doing here?
Jake: Oh, come on, Donna, why don't you just give up?
Donna: Give up on what?
Jake: Trying to mess up our lives.
Donna: Oh, I didn't have to do that. You did that all by yourself.
Jake: I am trying to make things work.
Donna: Oh, really? By talking to strange women in nightclubs?
Jake: By starting a business in Bay City.
Donna: Ooh, what kind of business?
Jake: Managing talent.
Donna: Right. Right, that's good. That's really good.
Jake: I take it you don't want to invest.
Donna: Jake, you know, if I really thought you were trying to make this work with Marley --
Jake: I am trying to make it work with Marley, Donna.
Donna: Why should I believe that?
Jake: Because I love her. Because I want to be with her.
Donna: That's it?
Jake: I'm hoping that you're not going to try to stand in my way.
Donna: You know, I thought you had changed.
Jake: I made a mistake, Donna. I'm human. I will never look at another woman again.
Donna: So it was another woman? So that's what Marley has been dealing with this entire time?
Jake: You said you knew.
Donna: No, no, I said I thought I knew.
Jake: What difference does it make now?
Donna: Well, Jake, when I only thought I knew, I was trying to be fair to you. But now -- now that I know for sure --
Jake: What? What?
Donna: I know the kind of man you are. I know that you keep a woman on a string and you just hurt her over and over again just because you can.
Jake: You don't what you're talking about.
Donna: You know, I really hope Marley never allows you to touch her again.
Josie: Hi. I'm the babysitter.
Ada: I'm the grandma. Come on in.
Amanda: Hi, Josie.
Josie: Hi, Amanda. I'm so sorry. I couldn't get into town and the buses were all messed up --
Amanda: Oh, it's ok.
Sam: Don't worry about it, Josie. It's ok. It's not as if we didn't have enough help with the baby.
Ronnie: Look, now that reinforcement has arrived, I've got to go to work.
Julie Ann: Me, too. Can I give you a lift?
Ronnie: You don't mind?
Julie Ann: Mind? You and my family have a lot in common.
Ronnie: Look, thanks, you two, and enjoy your daughter.
Sam: We will.
Amanda: Thanks for everything, Ronnie.
Ronnie: Goodbye, you guys.
Sam: Yeah, take it easy. Let me walk you downstairs.
Ronnie: Ok. Bye.
Ada: Bye, ladies.
Josie: Why don't I start on the baby's laundry since she's sleeping?
Ada: Aren't you Sharlene Frame's daughter?
Amanda: Didn't I tell you about Josie, grandma?
Ada: You didn't have to. I'd know her anyway. You look just like your mother.
Josie: Everybody says that.
Ada: How is she?
Josie: She's good, the same.
Ada: Good. I like Sharlene. Say hello to her for me, ok?
Josie: Thanks, I'll do that.
Amanda: Well, I guess I'll start getting the laundry sorted.
Sam: No, I can do that.
Ada: I can do that.
Amanda: You paint. And you have got to try some fried chicken that grandma brought over.
Amanda: It's wonderful.
Sam: You know, management is real easy for her. She just tells everybody what to do.
Ada: Wonder where she gets that.
Josie: Thanks. You know, I'm surprised the baby's still sleeping. Just as I came in, this jeep came tearing up.
Amanda: Jeep? That must be Matthew.
Matt: Ok, where's the kid?
Matt: We're going to take her off your hands, Amanda. You're looking at the hippest babysitters in all of Bay City, right?
Sam: Hey, guys, guys? The baby is trying to sleep.
Kevin: But you should've seen us trying to stuff the baby seat into the back of the jeep. It was great.
Josie: You're the ones with the jeep?
Matt: Yeah, it's right out there. It is great, it's great.
Kevin: It's great.
Matt: It's fantastic.
Josie: Well, I wouldn't know. You have to baby-sit a long time to be able to afford one of those.
Amanda: Guys, this is Josie, and I'm sorry, but I already have a babysitter.
Josie: And I'm sure you're all broken up about it.
Matt: I can see why you hired her. She's so much fun.
Amanda: She takes her job very seriously.
Matt: I'll tell you one thing, with that personality; I'll bet she has a lot of Saturday nights free.
Ada: Hey, take it easy, pal.
Matt: I just wanted to talk to her, but hey, that's cool. So where's the niece?
Amanda, Ada, and Sam: Shh!
Nicole: Yeah, you were right, Cass, it was very romantic.
Cass: I guess the poet meant a light rain and not a downpour.
Nicole: Oh, yuck. I don't care. It was fun.
Cass: Why don't we slip into something a little more comfortable and I'll build a fire? I want tonight to be very special.
Nicole: Oh? Well, Mr. Winthrop, what did you have in mind?
Cass: You be patient, my sweet.
Nicole: Cass, come on. You have that delightful twinkle in your eye.
Cass: I always have that delightful twinkle in my eye.
Nicole: Come on, you know how I hate surprises.
Cass: I hope you don't hate tonight.
Nicole: I'll just go change. Oh, thank you for this. I really love it. It's beautiful.
Cass: You're welcome. I'm glad you like it.
Nicole: I'll be right back.
Cass: Are you all right?
Nicole: I think I am. Are you?
Cass: Yeah. Nothing got broken out here. Everything seems to be ok.
Nicole: Everything except this.
Cass: In the movies, isn't this the part where the heroine says, "I'm beginning to get a little scared," and the hero says, "Donít worry, Nell, it's just your imagination running wild"? And then after a couple of reels, we see them running for their lives? Why don't we skip those couple of reels, ok?
Nicole: What are you doing?
Cass: I'm getting us out of here! I mean, I like a romantic interlude as much as the next guy, but I refuse to become one of the living dead.
Nicole: Cass, we can't leave.
Cass: Yes, I can!
Nicole: Oh, now, stop being ridiculous.
Cass: I am not being ridic-- you know, give me those clothes! I always thought that those guys in the horror films got exactly what they deserved, you know what I mean, laughing at the warning signals, being plucky? It served them right for getting decapitated.
Nicole: Cass --
Nicole: You're really spooked, aren't you?
Cass: Who, me?
Nicole: Your imagination --
Cass: Has checked out already, and I'm not far behind.
Nicole: Cass, please don't go!
Cass: What did you say?
Nicole: Please don't go.
Cass: I don't think I've ever heard you say "please" to me before.
Nicole: You mean it worked?
Cass: Actually, it's not that bad here with the lights out and rain falling.
Nicole: Would you please --
Cass: Ooh. For that, you don't have to say "pretty please."
Nicole: Oh. You know, you were right.
Cass: I'm always right. Tell me what I was right about this time.
Cass: Oh, I think I'm going to like this conversation.
Nicole: Well, he's a wonderful man.
Cass: Oh, I never said that. No, no, no, no, I said he was slime, boring slime.
Nicole: No, I mean, he could never make me laugh the way that you do.
Nicole: So wonderful.
Cass: This pigeon goes into a bar, see, and he orders a beer and a piccolo.
Nicole: I love you.
Cass: I love you, too.
Nicole: Can I ask you something?
Cass: You don't even have to say "please."
Nicole: No, I mean something serious.
Cass: Ok, what?
Nicole: Um, did you -- did you and Kathleen laugh like this? I won't be upset or anything.
Cass: Well, Kathleen and I fought. I mean, that's what we did.
Nicole: Do we fight?
Cass: Well, anyone who, you know, spends any extended period of time with me ends up yelling a lot, but it's not the same.
Cass: No, no, Kathleen and I fundamentally disagreed about absolutely everything. I mean, it was exhausting. But it was wonderful, too. But you and I are very different.
Nicole: You know, I know that Drew drives you crazy, and I can understand that. But Kathleen -- I mean, you loved her so much, and she's gone.
Cass: Nicole, I know that Kathleen would want us to be happy.
[Knock on door]
Nicole: Who is that? I mean, nobody would even come up here.
Cass: It's probably the headless horseman or something. Hello?
Ooh. It's the old "here's the champagne but where's the waiter" routine.
[Hums "twilight zone" theme]
Nicole: Don't start again!
Cass: Start what?
Matt: I mean, hitching across Europe, that has got to be cultural broadening of you, you know? I'd even go to see that museum my mom's always talking about, the -- the "louver." Louver? "Louver"?
Kevin: Grandma said no.
Matt: I know, but --
Kevin: And Tracy said that you agreed that it was a bad idea.
Josie: Wait a minute, you mean to say that you had a chance to hitch across Europe and you didn't go because your grandma said no?
Matt: That's right.
Josie: Hmm. You'd think they'd give money to people who knew what to do with it.
Matt: I would've made a bigger scene, but I just got off of being in trouble for about three months and, you know --
Josie: You were in trouble for three months and you got a new car?
Matt: Yeah, but they were going to get me a private plane. That was a joke.
Josie: Not a funny one.
Matt: That car really bothers you, huh?
Josie: Car? What car?
Matt: Would you like a ride in it, maybe drive it yourself?
Josie: You mean it?
Kevin: I thought you said that nobody else was allowed to drive it.
Matt: What's the point of having a brand-new jeep if you can't let your friends drive it?
Josie: Wait, friends?
Matt: Besides, she really wants --
Josie: I'm not your friend. I just met you, remember, and pointed out what a jerk you are.
Matt: Do you have something against getting along with people?
Josie: You know, why would you want to hitch across Europe, anyway? I mean, you could just go first-class all the way, hire someone to translate for you, somebody to go to the Louver for you. I mean, why would you want to waste time looking at priceless art that you wouldn't understand?
Matt: I really smoothed things over.
John: Good, make sure it gets done, and when I get out there, we'll work out the details of the layout.
Man: Hey, what's with the boss?
Jason: He's in a mood.
Chris: So what else is new?
Sharlene: It must be the weather.
Jason: Why don't you ask?
Man: The orders he just gave? He told the guys that stuff last night. They know what to do.
John: No, no, no, wait! Listen to me! Whenever somebody calls like that, just refer them to me! I'll handle it! Right!
Sharlene: So, John, come on, how about that iced tea?
John: I don't want any iced tea.
John: I don't want to be a drag, but we have been given a very important contract. There are a lot of people out there that would love to have the jobs that we have.
Jason: John, I think all of us feel that way, we understand that, but that doesn't give you cause to bark at Sharlie like that.
John: You're right, I'm sorry.
Sharlene: No, look, it's ok. I grew up with Jason. I'm used to cranky men.
Man: Hey, how come you're dressed for work, boss? I thought you had that TV interview this morning.
John: No, no, I canceled that, man.
John: What is it? I mean, I get a couple of Vietnam vets a job, and all of a sudden I'm media's favorite interview. It's --
Jason: What is wrong with that?
Chris: You don't like feeling like a rock star?
John: I'm not a rock star, all right?
Jason: John, that's good publicity for the vets. It's also good publicity for our company.
John: All right, then, Jason, you do it because I've had a stomach full!
Chris: I guess the strain of being friendly was too much for him.
Jason: Where you going, Sharlie?
Sharlene: I'm going to talk to john.
Chris: Are you crazy?
Sharlene: You ok?
John: Yeah, sure.
Sharlene: Want to talk?
John: These past few days, I've had to turn down 67 vets who need work. They're still calling the construction shack. I just don't have the jobs for them.
Sharlene: Must be tough.
John: It's not tough on me. I got a job.
Sharlene: No, I mean it must be a real burden, easing so many people's conscience. They see you, they see you on TV, they see you in the newspaper, and they say to themselves, "hey, hey, look, somebody's helping the vets. I guess I don't have to think about them anymore."
John: How'd you know I was thinking that?
Sharlene: Because I probably could've been one of those people.
John: And what made you change your mind?
Sharlene: Watching you, I guess. Sure is hot. If I were you, I'd have that iced tea.
Matt: You know, I meant it when I said I'd give you a ride.
Josie: I can't just take off. I work here, remember?
Matt: Sam and Amanda are here. They'll understand.
Josie: I need this job. Maybe you don't understand things like that.
Matt: Hey, all right. Fine. Let's go.
Kevin: Ok. Hey, you want to stop off at the drive-in, check out some waitresses?
Matt: Oh, man, you call yourself Captain Cool? Please.
Kevin: What, I think they look cute with those trays. Besides, I'm hungry.
Matt: You just ate.
Kevin: I'm hungry.
Josie: "Captain Cool"?
Amanda: Josie, did you say something?
Josie: Oh. Oh, no, ma'am, I'm sorry, everything's fine. Go back to sleep. Go on.
Nicole: I don't know where the champagne came from, but it certainly is wonderful.
Cass: Yeah, well, must've come from some well-meaning person who saw us and knew how we felt about each other.
Nicole: What a lovely gesture.
Cass: Where you going?
Nicole: To dry my hair.
Nicole: Well, when you run your fingers through it, I want it to feel soft.
Cass: Oh. Okay.
Cass: Ok. This is the night.
Jason: Tell the guys that John will be in tomorrow. I think it's a good idea that he talks to Sharlie.
Chris: Yeah, I think so.
Jason: Thank you for all your help. Appreciate it.
Chris: Right. Jason?
Chris: Is there something wrong?
Jason: Well, just with John, yeah, but something else? What? I don't know what you mean.
Chris: Well, I've been here over an hour and I thought I looked all right.
Jason: Oh, yeah, you look great.
Chris: Well, how was I supposed to know? Because your sister's here, suddenly you're on best behavior? You haven't said a crude thing, you haven't made a pass at me the whole time.
Jason: Oh, that. No, that was a tactic. I just threw you a curve to shake your confidence a little bit.
Chris: Oh. Well, it worked. Can I buy you a drink sometime?
John: So I was talking to this guy from channel four --
John: And he said he wanted to know about the vets, so I started telling him about how hard it was for them to get jobs and everything, and he interrupts me and he says, "Hey, have you seen this movie 'platoon'?" I mean, this guy didn't even give a damn about our project or any of the vets.
Sharlene: John, you know, I really enjoy talking to you, I do.
Sharlene: But could you dry while we talk?
John: Yeah, I suppose I could.
Jake: So tell me, what do we do now, go to our neutral corners and come out fighting?
Donna: I will do everything in my power to see to it that you do not hurt Marley.
Jake: Oh, come on, Donna, she's a grownup!
Donna: Well, she is still my daughter! And I don't care; I will not stand by and let you --
Donna: Marley, honey.
Marley: I need to speak with Jake alone, please?
Donna: Well, I just thought --
Marley: Would you like for me to leave?
Donna: No. No, uh, I'll -- I'll be upstairs.
Jake: Your mother and I were --
Marley: We don't need to speak about her, Jake. She has nothing to do with this.
Jake: You're right. You've come back.
Marley: Yes. I've made my decision.
