Jason: Scott, what is most important is that we're going to raise a lot of money for Aids research. So I suggest we put these ill feelings and distrust out of our thoughts and concentrate on making this thing a real success.

Scott: I don't have any problem with that.

Jason: Great.

Scott: I'm just worried about my mother.

Jason: Your mother?

Scott: Yes. She's going to be very involved with this whole benefit.

Jason: I know that.

Scott: I know you know that, and I don't want you to think that you're going to take advantage of this opportunity working with her to cause problems with her and Vince.

Jason: Now you're really going to tick me off. If there is a problem, it's between your mother and me, not you.

[Knock on door]

Jason: Excuse me. Felicia?

Felicia: Jason, hi.

Jason: Hi.

Felicia: Oh, Scott. Good, you're here.

Scott: Hi, Felicia.

Felicia: Boy, look at the work you're doing here. It's nice.

Jason: Yeah, it's going to take a little more. But what brings you here?

Felicia: Oh, you didn't tell him? Scott wanted me to lend my expertise to the planning of this Aids benefit. He seems to think that Iím the only one that knows how to throw a really good party.

Scott: Mm-hmm.

Felicia: So, where's your mom?

Scott: I told her she didn't need to take work off for this. It wasn't important enough.

Jason: Right, so I suggest we get down to work.

Sharlene: Jason, have you --

Jason: Oh.

Sharlene: Oh, sorry. I didn't know you had guests.

Jason: Sharlene, Felicia Gallant, Scott LaSalle. My sister, Sharlene.

Scott: Pleasure to meet you.

Sharlene: Nice to meet you.

Felicia: Your sister? Well, hello, it's nice to meet you.

Sharlene: You, too.

Jason: She just moved back into town.

Felicia: Really?

Sharlene: Yeah.

Felicia: So you're the one that's responsible for all this work.

Sharlene: Yeah, Josie and I have been reorganizing a little.

Felicia: Josie?

Sharlene: My daughter.

Felicia: You're kidding. You know, you've been holding out. I can't wait to meet the rest of your family.

Jason: Where is Josie?

Matt: She's late. She's late. Ok, Matt, face it. Riviera is a no-show again. Ugh. Kevin.

Kevin: Matt.

Matt: What are you doing here?

Kevin: I figured I'd take a swim, maybe sunbathe for a little while. And you?

Matt: Uh, just hanging out.

Kevin: Oh. Well, you're looking pretty snappy for just hanging out. What's going on?

Michael: There you go -- oh, and inside!

Donna: Oh, that was a ball. All right, one more time.

Michael: That was a ball. Ok.

Donna: Ok, here we go.

Michael: Here we go, the pitch. Oh, ball two.

Donna: Oh, ball two. Come on.

Michael: He, come on, partner.

Donna: Got to get a strike in here.

Michael: Right down the center, right down the center.

Donna: Whoa!

Michael: Oh! Well, we'll give you a strike on that.

Donna: That was a strike.

Michael: That was a strike.

Mikey: Strike.

[Phone rings]

Donna: Ok, one more time.

Michael: One more -- oh!

Donna: Whoa!

Michael: Well, that's 2-2.

[Ring]

Michael: And that's the phone.

Donna: You better catch that.

Michael: Yes. Here, partner. I'll be right back, ok?

Donna: Let's try it one more time. Here you go.

Michael: Don't go anywhere without me.

Donna: Here we go -- whoa!

Michael: Hello?

Courtney: Hello, Mr. Hudson, this is detective Courtney Walker.

Michael: Yes, detective?

Courtney: Listen, I have a couple with me right now. We believe they're Mikey's parents. I'd like to bring them over to see him.

Julie Ann: Well, big brother, you seem to have everything under control. Music outside and everything.

Zack: Why do I let you talk me into these things?

Julie Ann: What's wrong? The coals are hot, the food's ready. What could be more perfect?

Zack: It'd be nice if we had some people here.

Julie Ann: Sam and Amanda are going to come.

Cheryl: Yeah, and Scott should be here any second, really.

Zack: Look at all this food. I mean, we're going to have a lot of it left over.

Julie Ann: Don't worry. I invited other people.

Zack: Yeah? Who?

Julie Ann: Just friends. And besides, Shaneís come -- Shaneís here.

Zack: Well, so?

Julie Ann: He'll take care of the leftovers.

Man: Excuse me, Julie Ann, you have any more dip?

Julie Ann: Oh, yeah, it's out on the kitchen.

Man: Thanks.

Julie Ann: Growing boy.

Zack: My own sister cutting up her date. I mean, a guy hasn't got a chance around you two.

Cheryl: Well, you know, sometimes the truth hurts a little.

Zack: Listen, I got to go get some more coals from the garage. Look, don't let Shane near the chicken until I get back, ok?

Julie Ann: We will try.

Cheryl: I think it is great that you're having this barbecue today for Sam and Amanda.

Julie Ann: Oh, yeah.

Cheryl: They really need a break.

Julie Ann: Well, you know, they've had a lot to cope with, you know, since Alli's been born.

Cheryl: Sure. It'll be great just to give them a chance to unwind, you know, and relax.

Julie Ann: Them? I can think of two other people that need to relax.

Cheryl: Yeah? Are you planning something?

Julie Ann: I'm just going to give nature a little nudge.

Ronnie: Oh, hi, Julie Ann.

Cheryl.

Cheryl: Hi, Ronnie.

Julie Ann: Make that a push.

Ronnie: Look, there's a man in your kitchen inhaling potato chips.

Julie Ann: Oh, that's Shane.

Ronnie: Anyway, he told me to come on out here.

Julie Ann: Well, listen, I'm glad you could make it.

Ronnie: Well, thanks for inviting me. Oh, this is a lovely house.

Julie Ann: Yeah, my brother has good taste. Oh, I want you to meet --

Ronnie: You? What are you doing here?

Zack: Well, I live here. It's my party.

Matt: So you came up here alone?

Kevin: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Kevin: I like to be alone sometimes.

Matt: Yeah, you want me to leave? I can leave.

Kevin: No, I didn't say that. What's the matter with you? You're really acting weird.

Matt: Nothing. I'm not -- nothing.

Kevin: All right.

Matt: Ok.

Kevin: Well, if there's something wrong, you know, you can talk to me. I have good ears.

Matt: No, I'm -- Iím ok. You know, thanks. I appreciate it. Um --

Kevin: Ok.

Matt: You know, I'm glad you moved to Bay City when you did. You ever miss home or anything?

Kevin: Sometimes.

Matt: Yeah?

Kevin: I miss my house and some of my old friends. Not my dad.

Matt: You haven't talked to him lately, huh?

Kevin: Why should I? He just reminds me of what a failure he thinks I am.

Matt: A failure? You were in the top 5% of your class.

Kevin: He doesn't care about that. You know that. He thinks education is a waste of time.

Matt: Oh, what does the guy care about?

Kevin: I don't know. He talks about work a lot, you know?

Matt: Oh.

Kevin: I know he's worked all his life, but it never made him happy, so --

Matt: Well, what makes Kevin Julian happy, huh?

Kevin: I don't know. I'm still trying to figure it out.

Matt: Yeah, me, too. Well --

Kevin: Where are you going off to?

Matt: No -- ok, listen, I'm going to drop by Sam and Amandaís. Do you want to come with me?

Kevin: No, no. I'm just going to hang out here.

Matt: Ok. Uh, sure. I'll see you later.

Kevin: Yeah. Bye.

Josie: Captain Cool? It is you, after all.

Kevin: Josie.

Sharlene: Well, I don't exactly know where she is. In fact, I was coming in here to ask you if you had seen her.

Felicia: Well, you know, it is a beautiful day. She's probably out enjoying it.

Jason: She's probably hiking on the south side.

Felicia: Right.

Sharlene: I hope so. So you all are here for the Aids benefit?

Felicia: Yes, right.

Scott: Right, we're going to have a little cookout.

Felicia: No, no, no, no, a gala cookout.

Scott: A gala cookout. Excuse me.

Felicia: Yes.

Jason: Yes, and because it's a gala cookout, we're going to charge admission, and all the proceeds go to Aids research.

Felicia: I think it's a wonderful idea you're having it out here at the farm.

Sharlene: You know, I think what you're doing is great, and I would really like to help.

Felicia: Really? Oh, good. I'm the one in charge of logistics, so I can use all the help I can get, believe me.

Sharlene: Terrific.

Felicia: I'll keep in touch.

Mitch: Felicia?

Felicia: Mitch.

Jason: Mitch, what are you doing out here?

Mitch: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come bursting in without introducing myself. I'm Mitch Blake.

Sharlene: Hi, Sharlene Watts. I'm Jasonís sister.

Jason: Yeah.

Sharlene: You're here to help with the Aids benefit?

Mitch: Um, right.

Scott: Speaking of which, I think we ought to get going. I told Cheryl I was going to be back within the hour.

Felicia: Yes, of course. Oh, we just have to figure out where you want to put the tent, and the rest of it Iíll take care of.

Jason: I got some ideas. You want to take a look?

Scott: Yeah, let's go.

Sharlene: Yeah.

Felicia: Listen, Mitch and I will join you in just a second, all right?

Sharlene: Nice to meet you.

Jason: Yeah.

Felicia: What? What's going on?

Mitch: Well, Drew Marsten is still in town.

Michael: Well, buddy, pretty soon we're going to see your real parents.

Mikey: Yeah!

Donna: Um, I think I'm going to go get a comb and take him upstairs.

Michael: Oh, that's not necessary, Donna.

Donna: No, no, I -- I want him to look perfect when his parents get here.

Michael: I understand.

Donna: Come on, let's go upstairs. Yeah, here we go.

[Doorbell rings]

Michael: Ah, detective, please come in.

Courtney: Mr. Hudson, this is Mr. And Mrs. Betts.

Michael: Mrs. Betts, Mr. Betts. Welcome. How -- how are you doing?

Mrs. Betts: Much better now.

Mr. Betts: Yes, we can't tell you how happy we are.

Mrs. Betts: We never thought we'd see our son again. It's been six months.

Courtney: The Bettse's have come all the way from White Plains, New York.

Michael: Well, you must have had a long trip.

Mr. Betts: Yeah, it's kind of hard to believe our little guy was found so far away.

Mrs. Betts: I'm sorry, Mr. Hudson, I can't wait any longer. Where is he?

Michael: Oh, just a minute. Wait a second. Donna? Donna, would you bring Mikey down, please?

Donna: What -- what is it? What's wrong?

Amanda: Can you get my gold earrings from my purse?

Sam: Sure. I've got nothing better to do.

[Knock on door]

Sam: Hey.

Matt: Sam, I begged you to get therapy.

Sam: Cute. Come on in. What are you doing here, Matt?

Matt: Hey, do I need a reason to come over here?

Amanda: It's just that we may be late. Don't worry about the earrings. I'm going to wear the ones I have.

Matt: Whoa, you are looking good!

Sam: Mm-hmm, I'll say.

Amanda: Thanks. I am just about down to my pre-pregnancy weight, and I am ready to party.

Sam: Oh, yeah? Congratulations.

Matt: Ahem. Where you partying?

Amanda: Oh -- there's a barbecue over at Zack's, which we are late for.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Josie should be here any minute. What time did she say she was going to show up?

Sam: I don't know.

Amanda: I thought you called her.

Sam: I thought you called her.

Amanda: Great. All dressed up and no babysitter.

Sam: I'm sorry. Look, I'll take care of it. I'll give Zack a call and cancel.

Matt: Hey, wait, wait, forget that. I'll take care of Alli.

Amanda: Oh, that's really sweet of you, Matt, but I don't think it's --

Sam: Yeah, Matt. Look, thanks a lot, but we wouldn't want to ruin your evening. We'll just stay home.

Matt: Wait, you trust Alli with Josie, but you don't trust her with me, your own flesh and blood?

Amanda: It's just that Josie has experience.

Matt: And I don't?

Amanda: Matt, the only thing you ever babysat was a hamster.

Matt: Hey, come on, Alli loves me. Don't you love me? Don't you --

Sam: Shh, shh.

Matt: All right, all right, so she's asleep now, but usually she loves me.

Amanda: It's a really big responsibility, Matt.

Matt: You're not going to be off in China. You're going to be two minutes away.

Sam: You know, Amanda, he's right.

Matt: I'm right.

Amanda: All right, well, I guess that'll be ok. I left Zackís number by the phone.

Matt: Great.

Amanda: And you know where the milk is, right?

Matt: Right.

Amanda: In the refrigerator. And you know where the diapers are?

Matt: Diapers?

Amanda: Maybe I should stay home.

Matt: Only kidding, only kidding. I'm an expert diaper changer. Piece of cake.

Sam: Look, she is going to worry, though. Let's go, let's go.

Amanda: Are you sure you can handle this?

Matt: I'm sure! Go, go, go, go, go!

Sam: Come on, Amanda, we're out of here.

Matt: Enjoy. Have a good time.

Sam: Thanks a lot. Take it easy, ok?

Matt: Hey, no problem. Vive la life there, boy. Ah, piece of cake.

[Alli cries]

John: Oh, I do love a girl in a hardhat.

Chris: Thanks, I'll remember that. Listen, I just saw the entire crew jump into a car and peel out of here. What's going on?

John: I told them to go home.

Chris: There are two hours of work left.

John: That's true, but it happens to be the beginning of a long weekend, so I decided Iíd give them all a head start. The work will still be here on Tuesday.

Chris: Skinflint Hudson has a heart.

John: Not completely. You see, you have to stay.

Chris: What?

John: Just kidding. Go on home. Have a nice weekend.

Chris: Thanks. When did you turn into such a softie?

John: Well, Fourth of July only comes once a year, you know.

Chris: Well, yeah. So does Woodrow Wilsonís birthday. I don't see you getting sentimental over that.

John: Well, it's not the holiday so much. It's just memories, certain memories that stand out for me.

Chris: You mean like when you were 13 years old and you burned your hand on a sparkler?

John: No, more like when I was 19 -- burned my hands on bigger toys.

Chris: Oh. You mean the kind of toys they give you in Vietnam?

John: You know that in Nam sometimes days, maybe even weeks, would pass; there would be no fighting at all?

Chris: That must have been a relief.

John: You would think it would be. But sometimes it made it worse. Sometimes it was just awful because you knew the inevitability that something was going to explode at any time. Always, the lulls between the fighting -- they were always the worst. Just waiting. Silence was deafening. I remember this one time we were out hopping in the bush, and this guy in back of me -- Medford was his name, Sgt. Gary Medford -- he was communications sergeant -- he starts whistling real low. This sounds really stupid. Believe me, it was real stupid then. I thought it was. He was whistling "Yankee doodle dandy." And I turned and I looked at him like he was crazy. And he just looked at me and smiled and kept right on whistling. Little while later, somebody else joined in, and then a couple of other guys joined in. They were all whistling, and I couldn't believe it. We were in a hot fire zone. We could have been blown away at any minute and these guys are whistling "Yankee doodle dandy." And so I just yelled back and said, "Medford, shut up!" And he just looks up at me and he grins and he says, "Hey, chill out, doc. It's the Fourth of July." A little while later, a couple other guys joined in. They started singing "Yankee doodle dandy." I don't know what happened. I just started to relax. My shoulders relaxed, my stomach relaxed, and this great big, old laugh kind of boiled up way down in my gut someplace. A smile came over my face, and I was singing "Yankee doodle dandy" along with the rest of them. Hopping through the bush in South Vietnam singing "Yankee doodle dandy" on the Fourth of July. For a while there, I -- I thought I was back in the states. I thought I felt good. I thought I was safe.

Chris: Well, I guess I ought to take off, let you get out of here.

John: Well, listen, I don't have any plans. There's no hurry.

Chris: Well, that makes two of us.

John: Well, listen, Macaleer, how'd you like to come out to the farm and take a swim?

Chris: A swim? Now, that would feel good. Yeah, yeah, I'll take that.

John: All right, I got a little paperwork to finish up here, so why don't you go and change and meet me back here later?

Chris: Ok.

John: Good enough.

Chris: One condition.

John: What's that?

Chris: I don't want to hear any wisecracks about swimming with a hardhat.

John: Take it with you.

Mrs. Betts: I was so sure it would be him. But he's not Mikey. He's not our Mikey.

Courtney: I'm so sorry. This is a terrible mistake.

Mr. Betts: I can see why there was a mix-up, officer. This child certainly matches the description you gave. He looks so much like my son -- same blue eyes, blond hair, right age. But he isn't ours.

Donna: I'm sorry.

Donna: Can I -- can I get you something? Anything?

Mrs. Betts: He's been gone for so long. I had almost given up hope. But then we got this call to come here, and I couldn't believe it at first. I -- I kept telling myself not to get too excited, not to believe that he really could --

Donna: It's all right. It's ok. It's all right.

Josie: So you're the Captain Cool?

Kevin: Yeah -- sort of.

Josie: Sort of?

Kevin: Well, there's that other Captain Cool, too.

Josie: Oh, oh, that could explain it.

Kevin: Explain what?

Josie: Nothing, Captain Cool.

Kevin: Could you call me Kevin?

Josie: Sure, Kevin.

Kevin: Did you want to go swimming or something?

Josie: Oh, I didn't think to bring a bathing suit.

Kevin: Well, that's ok. You look great anyway.

Josie: Oh, thanks.

Kevin: That was -- that was some night you had the other night. I'm sorry about that.

Josie: I was so embarrassed. My mother ruined the whole party.

Kevin: No.

Josie: Yes, she did. And I can never face those people again.

Kevin: Forget it. Look, we all have parents, and they've embarrassed us all. Don't worry about it. Parents can be jerks sometimes.

Josie: Is your mother a jerk to you a lot?

Kevin: My mom's dead.

Josie: Oh. I'm sorry.

Kevin: Oh, it's ok, don't worry. My dad makes up for it. That's part of the reason why I moved here, to get away from him.

Josie: Well, I'm thinking of going back to L.A.

Kevin: Are things really that bad?

Josie: My mom thinks I'm --

Kevin: What?

Josie: She just doesn't like me very much, that's all.

Kevin: Well, then, I think she's crazy.

Josie: That's sweet of you to say.

Kevin: I hope you don't go back to L.A.

Josie: Well, I'll tell you one thing, Kevin -- I am not going to be stuck on that farm. I'm going to have better -- a lot better.

[Alli cries]

[Matt clucks]

Matt: Hey! Ok, Alli! Go to sleep! Ok, ok --

Rock-a-bye, baby on the treetop when the wind ok, ok, so Iím not Springsteen. I'm trying, I'm trying. Do you want to come out here? No? Ok. How about a little ride? No, ok. Ok, hold on. Just hold on there. We got the rattle, we got the bear. Bubbles! All right. Cap off there -- whoo! Watch. Hmm, hmm, good bubbles we got here. Whoo! Look at that, huh? I don't know what to do for this kid!

[Alli stops crying]

Matt: Alli? Alli? Oh. You just quieted down there, huh? I guess you just wanted to be alone. Yeah, yeah, I know how that is. Believe me, I know how that is. Yeah, sometimes that's all I want to do is to just be left alone. Mm-hmm. Yeah, but sometimes -- sometimes, though, like, being around people -- the right people -- people that, you know, make plans with you and then follow through with them, you know -- you don't know what I'm talking about. Well, see, there's this girl that -- oh, I haven't actually met this girl, but I think I could like her a lot, you know. I mean, she's not as special as you are, but I think she could be pretty special. Yeah. Yeah, I guess she could be -- she could be pretty special. But I don't know. I don't know if it would work out.

[Alli cries]

Matt: Whoa!

[Matt speaks gibberish]

Shane: Seconds, anyone?

Julie Ann: Try thirds.

Cheryl: You've been pretty quiet. Did things go ok at Jasonís?

Scott: Yeah, I think the benefit's going to be a big hit.

Cheryl: Great. That's terrific. Isn't it?

Scott: Of course it is. Uh, listen, you mind if we cut out of here for a bit? Go for a drive, maybe out by the mill?

Cheryl: The mill?

Scott: Yeah.

Cheryl: I haven't been to the mill since --

Scott: Since we were out there before.

Cheryl: Yeah.

Scott: How about it?

Cheryl: Sure, let's go.

Scott: Ok. Let's sneak out of here.

Cheryl: Yeah, right.

Zack: Can I get you something?

Ronnie: Oh, no. No, no, no. I just wanted to say Iím having a wonderful time. Thank you.

Zack: Well, thank Julie Ann. She invited you.

Ronnie: Well, I did, but you've been a gracious host, even though you didn't know I was going to be here. Look, I know we've had some -- a lot of trouble at the hospital, but -- well, I was hoping we could start over. What do you say?

Zack: Zack Edwards. My pleasure.

Felicia: You really think that Marsten is the golden boy?

Mitch: Yes, Iím sure of that, and I think he was responsible for setting up your accident with the microphone. And I'm sure that he sent the flowers. It's just his way of letting us know that he has his eye on us, that he knows whatever move we might make.

Felicia: Oh, well, I'm certainly not crazy about any of this.

Mitch: Well, and unfortunately, there's no way that we can shake him by going to the police.

Felicia: Yeah, maybe not. I have an idea. In fact, I have a perfect idea.

Mitch: What?

Felicia: Well, now -- now, this is not a totally original thought. I'm sort of stealing this from one of my books, "passion's progress."

Mitch: Felicia, life is not a romantic novel.

Felicia: Mitch, honey, trust me. This is going to work. I'll tell you all about it when we get out of here, all right?

Mitch: Look, don't go making any plans, and don't go putting any plans into effect without talking to me first.

Felicia: Mitch, I would never -- to be perfectly honest, I can't do a thing without you.

Mitch: Well, that's better.

Felicia: Oh!

Mitch: That's the kind of plans I like.

Felicia: Really?

Jason: Oh, yeah, we're just fine.

Sharlene: Oh, sorry.

Felicia: Sorry.

Mitch: I was just on my way out. It was nice meeting you.

Sharlene: You, too.

Mitch: Jason, Iíll see you later.

Jason: Yeah, sure. It's a short stay.

Felicia: Well, you know photographers. They're always looking for the light. So, did you find a perfect site?

Sharlene: Yeah, yeah.

Felicia: Great. Well, do you want to get started on the rest of it, then?

Jason: Yeah.

Sharlene: Can I just talk to you just for a second? Would you excuse us?

Felicia: Oh, of course.

Sharlene: Excuse me.

Jason: Just a second. What's up?

Sharlene: I just wanted to talk to you. I wanted to thank you for that talk we had earlier.

Jason: I love you, Sharlene. Hey, what's past is past.

Sharlene: It just -- it meant a lot to me, ok?

Jason: You're my sis. Just because you make a little mistake, Iím not going to love you any less.

Sharlene: God, you can be a nice guy when you want to be.

[Phone rings]

Jason: When I want to be. Hello? Yeah.

Felicia: Hi. Listen, I -- I made a mistake with --

Jason: Hold on. Hold on! Sharlene, why don't you show Felicia the spot we picked. Before you make any more specific plans, you can --

Sharlene: Yeah, fine.

Jason: Look at the exact thing, ok?

Felicia: Great, sure.

Sharlene: Yeah, it's over here if you want to just follow me.

Felicia: Ok, ok.

Sharlene: It's not far.

Jason: What are you calling me for?

John: Hey.

Chris: Ready?

John: Almost. I have to put a few of these receipts away. Would you mind grabbing those fliers for me? I told Mary McKinnon Iíd pass a few of them out.

Chris: Sure.

Chris: John, I just realized, I left my swimsuit at home. You mind if I meet you at the farm?

John: No, that's all right. You know how to get there?

Chris: Yeah, I know the way. I've got to make a phone call. Is that ok?

John: Sure, go ahead. Just meet me out there later. Be sure you lock up.

Chris: Sure.

Donna: You were thinking about the Bettseís, weren't you?

Michael: Yeah.

Donna: I really feel so badly for them. This is a horrible thing for them to have to go through.

Michael: That's true. It's a terrible thing for them to go through. My heart goes out to them. But, Donna, you know something? I was relieved. You think that's terrible?

Donna: No, I donít.

Michael: Donna, I -- I'm not ready to lose Mikey.

Donna: I know. I saw that in your face when you were on the phone.

Michael: It was that obvious, huh?

Donna: Well, to tell you the truth, I don't know that Iím ready to lose him, either. I mean, I really didn't like the idea of only being able to tell him goodbye, you know, in just a few minutes.

Michael: Donna, you know that when it happens -- if it happens -- that's exactly how it is going to happen. The phone's going to ring, they're going to come over here, and in a few minutes he's going to be gone.

Donna: I know. I know, and that's why, Michael, we just can't allow ourselves to get too attached to him.

Michael: Right, right, right.

Donna: You know, this whole thing was a mistake. I mean, we never should have brought him into our home. We shouldn't have let him into our lives.

Michael: Donna, Donna --

Donna: I mean, we're going to lose him again.

Michael: Honey, what we did we did for Mikey and maybe a little bit for ourselves, but we did the right thing.

Donna: I know we did. I know.

Michael: So Iím going to -- I'm going to go upstairs and check on him, ok?

Donna: Ok. Do that.

Michael: Easy does it.

Josie: Well, I better get back before the rat patrol comes after me.

Kevin: Who?

Josie: My uncle. He's this military nightmare. I mean, you can imagine with my mother and him how much fun it is on that farm.

Kevin: I'd like to see it.

Josie: The farm?

Kevin: Yeah. Sure. I mean, maybe I could go back with you and just hang around for a while.

Josie: Oh, I don't know. My mother would freak out if she saw me alone with a boy.

Kevin: Why?

Josie: She just -- she's just weird, that's all.

Kevin: Well, then, can I just call you or something?

Josie: Well, sure, there's always the party phone.

Kevin: Well, sometimes it's better just to talk, you know, without other people on the line.

Josie: Oh, oh. Ok. But if my mom answers the phone, hang up.

Kevin: Deal.

Josie: Ok.

Cheryl: Hey.

Kevin: Hi, Cheryl.

Cheryl: How are you?

Scott: Hi, guys.

Kevin: Josie, this is Cheryl and Scott. This is Josie.

Josie: Hi.

Cheryl: Hi.

Josie: Nice to meet you.

Scott: You, too.

Kevin: Well, we were just going, so --

Scott: Ok.

Cheryl: Great.

Josie: See you.

Scott: See you guys later.

Kevin: Bye.

Cheryl: Bye-bye.

Scott: He looked pretty happy, huh?

Cheryl: Yeah, he did.

Scott: What are you smiling about?

Cheryl: Nothing. Um, I'm glad he found -- he found a girlfriend. You know, it was just a few weeks ago that he -- you know, he --

Scott: Liked you?

Cheryl: Liked me, yeah. I mean, it was never that serious. It was just kind of a crush, I guess. I guess now that I think about it, his feelings for me were kind of like the feelings I had for John.

Cheryl: What's that? What are you smiling at?

Scott: I'm not smiling.

Cheryl: Yes, you are smiling. I saw you smiling.

Scott: I'm just glad to hear you say that about John, that's all. It's nice to know that he wasn't the love of your life.

Cheryl: Well, I've only had one of those.

Scott: I -- didn't come up here just to walk around.

Cheryl: Yeah, I -- I figured you wanted to talk.

Scott: There's something important I want to tell you.

Cheryl: Scott, what is it?

Scott: I'm going to leave Bay City.

Zack: So that's when you decided on nursing, huh?

Ronnie: Yeah. And I never regretted the decision. Actually, I'm even thinking about trying to get into medical school.

Zack: Well, medical school and nursing, too? Wow, that's tough.

Ronnie: I like hard work, and I love helping people. But I'm sure you know all about that.

Zack: Well, yeah, I have a few clients that make the law profession worthwhile. You know, as a matter of fact --

Courtney: Sorry I'm so late. Business called.

Zack: Oh, Courtney. Hi.

Courtney: Hi, I'm Courtney Walker.

Ronnie: Ronnie Lawrence. Pleased to meet you.

Courtney: Pleased to meet you.

Zack: Uh, so you had a tough day?

Courtney: The worst. But fortunately, I got personally invited to this barbecue, so Iím going to leave all that behind me and have a wonderful night.

Ronnie: Excuse me. I think I need another cold drink.

Amanda: Matt? Hi, it's me. I know, but I just wanted to check on the baby. Oh. Baby's fine.

Sam: Yeah, I told you she would be.

Amanda: Really? Thanks, Matt. Bye.

Sam: See? I told you you didn't have to worry about her.

Amanda: You didn't tell me that you got your information from Matt.

Sam: Oh. So he told you, did he?

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Sam: So what do you think? Are we going to be overbearing, pushy kind of parents?

Amanda: Probably.

Sam: Oh, great.

Julie Ann: You didn't tell me you were inviting Courtney.

Zack: You didn't tell me you were inviting Ronnie.

Julie Ann: Well, I guess E.S.P. Between siblings is greatly overrated.

Zack: Little sister, are you trying to set me up?

Julie Ann: What kind of sister do you think I am? Of course I'm trying to set you up.

Zack: Do me a favor -- one girl per barbecue, please?

Julie Ann: Some men should be so lucky.

Sam: Zack, Courtney was just telling us that she hasn't had a chance to go out since she's gotten to Bay City.

Courtney: Because I can't find anyplace fun to go.

Zack: Oh, what about that jazz club?

Amanda: Oh, the Pelican?

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: We've been meaning to go there.

Julie Ann: Yeah, I heard there's a great singer. She really belts out those songs.

Zack: Yeah, she's great. I saw her last week. As a matter of fact, I think Scott wants to get her for that Fourth of July Aids benefit.

Ronnie: I don't think she'll do that. I mean, I hear she only sings at the Pelican.

Zack: Oh, you've heard of her?

Ronnie: Yeah.

Julie Ann: Well, if she's so good, why don't we see her next Thursday?

Amanda: Ok, great.

Sam: That's a deal, yeah.

Courtney: Good, no problem.

Zack: What about you, Ronnie?

Ronnie: I'm afraid I can't make it. Sorry.

Julie Ann: Well, maybe another time.

Amanda: Are you sure? I mean, we've heard that the singer is really great.

Ronnie: Yeah, well, maybe another time.

Sharlene: Well, this trip sure is sudden, Jason.

Jason: It can't be helped.

Sharlene: What about the Aids benefit?

Jason: You're going to have to do without me.

Sharlene: You are sure being mysterious. Where are you going?

Jason: Sharlene, look, I've got a lot on my mind right now.

Sharlene: Well, so do I! You know, I don't even know where my own daughter has gone.

Jason: You and she have just been fighting a little too much. Now, she'll come back. She'll be back here before dinner. In the meantime, you have to cover for me on this Aids thing.

Sharlene: I --

Jason: If anybody gets out of line, you put them in their place Frame-style.

Sharlene: I will, don't worry.

Jason: Thank you.

Felicia: Listen, you know, I meant to tell you, I spoke to the caterer before I came, and the food is set.

Jason: Great, great.

Sharlene: Oh, good, good.

Felicia: I'm sorry that you have to leave so suddenly, Jason, but don't worry about anything. I'm sure Sharlene and I can hold down the fort, can't we?

Jason: That's what I'm counting on, sis.

Sharlene: Yeah.

Jason: Good. Hey, do me a favor.

Sharlene: What?

Jason: Tell John I have to go.

Sharlene: I will tell john you have to go. Be careful.

Jason: I'll be fine.

Josie: Uncle Jason.

Jason: Josie am I glad to see you. What did I tell you? Bye.

Josie: That's weird. Hi, Mom. Hello.

Felicia: Hello.

Sharlene: Felicia Gallant, this is my daughter, Josie.

Josie: Hi.

Felicia: Hello, Josie.

Josie: Nice to meet you.

Felicia: Nice to meet you. Your mother and I are planning the Aids benefit that you're going to have out here at the farm on Monday.

Josie: Oh, that's nice.

Felicia: Yes.

Josie: Well, if you'll excuse me.

Sharlene: Yeah.

Felicia: She's adorable.

Sharlene: Thank you. Listen, Felicia, the one thing that I am unclear about is how the pledges will work, because I don't --

Felicia: Ah, well, I haven't worked out all those details yet, but I will. I'm a whiz at these fundraisers.

Sharlene: Good.

Felicia: The kind of people that I plan to have here, I'm sure we're going to raise thousands of dollars with just the pledges alone.

Sharlene: That much?

Felicia: Oh, sure.

Sharlene: With the pledges?

Felicia: Yes. The Cory's I'm sure will donate a sizable donation from where they are, and then the Hudsonís will be here and the loves, and, well, all the wealthy families of bay city Iíll invite, and I'm sure we'll raise a lot of money. It should be a spectacular day.

Josie: Ms. Gallant, if you need any volunteers, I'd be glad to help out.

Felicia: Well, thank you, Josie. That's very nice of you. In fact, I may take you up on it.

[Car horn honks]

Felicia: Oh, that's my niece, Lisa. She's come to pick me up. Listen, it was nice meeting both of you.

Sharlene: You, too.

Felicia: Let me grab my purse, and I'll be talking to you a lot. In fact, you'll probably get sick of hearing from me.

Sharlene: I don't mind. Call me.

Felicia: Thank you. Ok.

Sharlene: Yeah, take care.

Felicia: Nice seeing you both.

Josie: Bye.

Sharlene: You, too.

Felicia: I'll see you soon.

Sharlene: Glad I could help. Bye.

Felicia: Bye-bye.

Josie: I'm going to my room.

Sharlene: Just one moment. I want to know something. Where have you been?

Cheryl: Where are you going?

Scott: Washington, D.C., Right after the Aids benefit.

Cheryl: Scott, that's Monday. Why did you wait so long to tell me?

Scott: I just made up my mind myself.

Cheryl: Why are you going to Washington? What's in Washington?

Scott: I'm going to work on the legal counsel for the aids commission.

Cheryl: Well, I know Dawn would be real proud of you. I am, too.

Scott: I told you first.

Cheryl: You told me first?

Scott: Mm-hmm.

Cheryl: Why?

Scott: Because you're the most important person in my life right now. And I'm really going to miss you.

Cheryl: I just -- I can't believe you're leaving after --

Scott: After what?

Cheryl: Forget it. Look, I don't want to talk about your leaving anymore, ok? I want us to just make the most of the time we have left together.

Scott: We will. We will.

Josie: I went for a walk. Or is that against the rules?

Sharlene: I was worried when I couldn't find you. I just wish you had let me know you were leaving.

Josie: Mom, we're not in the jungles of Africa. Where did Uncle Jason go?

Sharlene: He had some business that came up. He's just going to be gone a couple of days.

Josie: Well, I can't say I'm too broke up about that.

Sharlene: Josie, what -- what is going on with you? You're sounding so angry and bitter.

Josie: Well, excuse me if I don't act like Snow White. You know, it's kind of hard to do when your mother won't even trust you to go out for a walk.

Sharlene: Josie, all sorts of things can happen to a girl your age.

Josie: Just stop it! Just stop it! I am not what you think I am.

Sharlene: What are you talking about?

Josie: Forget it. Just forget it and leave me alone.

Donna: Dr. Crane? Yes, this is Donna Hudson. Hello. Oh, I'm fine, thank you. Listen, I was wondering if I could get an appointment with you as soon as possible. Um, yes, I want to come in to see if there's been any change in my condition, if Iíll be able to get pregnant and carry a baby to full term. It's very important. I'll take a cancellation or anything. Great. Thank you. Thank you very much. Bye-bye. Oh, so you didn't want to take your nap, did you? Oh, you're such a good boy. You really do have a mind of your own, don't you?

Mikey: Yeah!

Donna: You know what? I promise you Michael and I are going to take good care of you for as long as we can.

Mikey: Yeah!

Donna: Yes!
