Rachel: We're home!

Mac: Where is everybody?

Rachel: I don't know. They must have gotten wind we were coming home and -- and escaped.

Mac: I guess I better call the office, find out if I still own a business.

Rachel: No you don't.

Mac: What?

Rachel: Not until you hold me.

Mac: Rachel.

Rachel: Oh, you're being such a colossal grouch!

Mac: Well, the trip, it was useless, a disaster.

Rachel: Darling, we're home now. We're going to concentrate on all the good things in our life.

Mac: Alli.

Rachel: That's a good beginning.

Mac: I can't wait to see her, truthfully.

Rachel: Well, what are we waiting for?

Mac: Just one thing.

Rachel: What?

Mac: This. I love you.

Rachel: Oh, that's better.

Felicia: Don't you dare say that to me!

Mitch: What do you mean, I'll dare what I want to dare! I'll dare it right now, honey bunny.

Felicia: "Honey bunny"? "Honey --" don't you dare call me honey bunny!

Mitch: Quit running away. You're always running away! Just come back!

Felicia: How's that?

Mitch: Almost perfect.

Felicia: You know, I sort of like fighting with you like this.

Mitch: Well, I'm not so sure. I think I'm losing my voice.

Felicia: It'll be worth it, believe me, if we can stop Drew Marsten.

Cass: No.

Nora: I love you.

Cass: Don't say that!

Nora: Did you think that I could ever stop?

Cass: Stop? Yes, stop talking to me!

Nora: You are my life.

Cass: This isn't happening.

Nora: My one and only true love.

Cass: It's the power of suggestion.

Nora: We were meant to be together.

Cass: Stop with the suggesting, Winthrop.

Nora: I knew you'd come for me.

Cass: It's not a bad year. Can't be the champagne.

Nora: That's why I waited -- because I knew one day you'd come.

Cass: I didn't come. I'm not here. I mean, you're not here.

Nora: Yes. Oh, yes. Now we will be together forever.

Cass: Don't do this.

Nora: Do what?

Cass: Move. You can't move.

Nora: Why not?

Cass: "Why not?" Because this is my dream and I get what I want in my dreams.

Nora: This is no dream, my darling.

Cass: Don't call me that. Don't talk, either, all right?

Nora: Whatever you want.

Cass: I want to fast-forward this dream and wake up is what I want.

Nora: I've been waiting so long for you, an eternity.

Cass: Uh-uh.

Nora: The waiting was all worth it.

Cass: Wait a second. Wallingford? Wally? This is your doing, isn't it? You set this up, didn't you?

Nora: Who's Wallingford?

Cass: He's my best buddy. He's not here now, but this is very, very like him. Ok, all right, this is very funny. Good joke. You got me.

Nora: Joke?

Cass: Yeah, we used to do this sort of thing all the time. We -- it was -- it was our game.

Nora: You always did love games.

Cass: Oh, but not with you.

Nora: Yes.

Cass: No, because I didn't know you. I still don't know you.

Nora: Oh, now I understand. You are playing with me.

Cass: No!

Nora: Are you angry with me, my love -- still?

Cass: I'm not anything with you.

Nora: I don't blame you. But it wasn't my fault, darling. Please believe me. I wanted to meet you, and I would have.

Nicole: Cass? That was wrong, what I just did -- walking out. It's no way to settle things. Cass? Cass?

Cass: What?

Nicole: I'm apologizing for running out on you before. Hey, it's not that big a deal, Cass. I've apologized to you before.

Cass: She was here.

Nicole: Who?

Cass: I think --

Nicole: Who?

Cass: Nora.

Nicole: Nora? Nora the ghost?

Cass: I thought I was dreaming, but --

Nicole: Look at me.

Cass: But she was here!

Nicole: You're four sheets to the wind.

Cass: No! I'm not --

Nicole: Maybe five!

Cass: For a minute, I thought it was one of Wally痴 gags.

Nicole: Wally?

Cass: But she said she doesn't know him.

Nicole: Ah! You are bombed!

Cass: She's going to be back. Then what'll I do?

Nicole: I know what I'm going to do -- call Felicia. I'm too easygoing. What you need is someone to sober you up and get your wheels back on the tracks.

Cass: I don't know what's going on here, but whatever it is, please let it stop.

Rachel: Do you think Alli will like this little sun dress?

Mac: Well, she's a woman of impeccable taste, and it's an original. How could she not adore it?

Rachel: I know you think it's too big for her, but she'll grow into it.

Mac: Just in time for her sweet 16 party.

[Ada screams]

Ada: Rachel!

Rachel: Mom!

Ada: You guys, you scared me! What are you doing here?

Rachel: Well, I'm unpacking and Mac is degrouching.

Ada: What's the matter with Mac?

Mac: Oh, I'll be wonderful just as soon as I see that gorgeous granddaughter of mine.

Ada: Well, how did things go in Zurich?

Rachel: Don't ask.

Ada: That good?

Mac: It wasn't good, it wasn't bad. It just wasn't.

Ada: Well, then you still don't know what's happening with your business?

Rachel: Well, it doesn't look good.

Mac: I'm beginning to grouch up again.

Rachel: Wait a minute, wait a minute -- here, here's a present for Alli. We'll give him a quick fix-up -- his granddaughter!

Ada: Oh, I'm glad to see we're not spoiling our little darling.

[Mac laughs]

Rachel: So what's been happening while we've been gone?

Ada: Plenty. I'll fill you in on the way.

Mac: Well, it's just like they always say -- there's no place like home.

Ada: Be it ever so humble.

Felicia: Ok, yeah. Right away. Bye bye. That was Nicole.

Mitch: What's going on?

Felicia: Cass.

Mitch: That figures.

Felicia: Why do you say that?

Mitch: Well, I'm sure he's gotten himself into some sort of mess you need to go get him out of.

Felicia: Actually, he's drunk.

Mitch: So let him sleep it off.

Felicia: No, I think it's more than that. Nicole just won't tell me on the phone.

Mitch: Well, when he sobers up, you can go over there and find out.

Felicia: Mitch -- Mitch, why are you doing that?

Mitch: Doing what?

Felicia: Cass is my family. You know that. Now, if this were Matthew in trouble, or Sam --

Mitch: Ok, ok, you're right. You're right. I'm sure if it were one of them, I would be over there in a minute.

Felicia: That's one of the reasons that I love you.

Mitch: That's all?

Felicia: Well, you are awfully good in arguments. Got you, didn't I? Speaking of arguments, that guy who's watching us has not heard us fight in about 10 minutes.

Mitch: Are you sure this is working?

Felicia: Well, if it stops Drew Marsten, then it's worth it, no?

Mitch: Well, it might be slowing him down, but stopping Drew Marsten is going to require something else completely different.

Felicia: Like what?

Mitch: Something.

Felicia: Oh, you have a plan, don't you? Tell me. Come on. And then I値l tell you mine.

Mitch: I'll think about it. In the meantime, why don't you go check on Cass?

Felicia: Right, Cass, I forgot. Thanks. Ok. Ok.

Felicia: That's it, Blake! I have really had it with you! You're about as much fun as swamp gas!

Mitch: Swamp gas? Isn't that what the reviewers said about your last book?

Felicia: What?

Mitch: Swamp gas.

Felicia: Swamp gas.

Harry: Well, what can I get you?

Zack: Beer, light.

Harry: Coming up.

Zack: Listen, Harry -- Tiffany -- when's her first set?

Harry: Oh, man, we're kind of freewheeling around here, especially with her schedule. When she comes, she sings.

Zack: In a minute.

Zack: Oh, just a second.

Ronnie: Please, just get out of my way.

Zack: Not until we talk.

Vince: You're going to rub a hole in that, you keep doing it.

Mary: Honey, are you all right?

Vince: Maybe it's a new form of meditation, you know? Dishwashing Zen.

[Vince chants]

Mary: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Honey?

Cheryl: What?

Vince: Where are you?

Mary: Are you ok?

Cheryl: What are you talking about?

Vince: Well, you're certainly not here. I mean, you haven't said a word in an hour.

Cheryl: I was just thinking, pops.

Vince: About what?

Mary: Vince --

Vince: Mary, I just want to have a conversation.

Mary: She was just thinking.

Vince: I know that, but, you know, she looks serious and so I thought, you know, maybe we could help her out.

Mary: I figure if she needs our help, she'll ask for it. You'll do that, won't you? I mean, if you needed our help, you --

Cheryl: Excuse me.

Vince: I guess she didn't need our help.

Mary: She's just at that age.

Vince: I'm at that age. You're at that age. Whatever age we are is that age.

Mary: I wish you wouldn't take this so personally.

Vince: I am simply trying to find out what is bothering our daughter.

Mary: Yes, well, so am I, but she doesn't seem to want to tell us.

Vince: So, how do we find out?

Mary: I don't know.

Vince: Aha! Of course you do. You're trained to get things out of people.

Mary: You make me sound like a third-degree expert.

Vince: Psychologists have a natural talent for getting people to open up to them, so just use your talent. Go ahead, go ahead.

Mary: No. She'd just think I was prying.

Vince: Well, if you won't, I will.

Mary: What?

Vince: Pry. I'm going to march right up to her room and demand that she tells us what's going on.

Mary: Oh, no, Vince, no.

Vince: Oh, yeah. We both want to know, and if you're not going to get it out of her, I will.

Cass: I am not drunk, Nicole!

Nicole: You almost finished this entire bottle of champagne.

Cass: So would you have if a ghost said she loved you.

Nicole: Ok, ok. We are just going to relax. We'll just sit here quietly and wait until Felicia arrives.

Felicia: Nicole?

Nicole: In the bedroom, Felicia.

Felicia: Hi.

Nicole: Oh, I'm so glad you're here.

Felicia: Hi, honey.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: How you feeling?

Cass: I'm not. I'm numb. Visitors from the spirit world will do that to you.

Nicole: The only spirits you had contact with are in that bottle of champagne.

Cass: Oh, go ahead, call me a liar.

Felicia: Nicole, Nicole, why don't you go downstairs and brew a pot of coffee. I think we could all use a cup.

Cass: I could use an exorcist.

Felicia: Ok. So, would you like to tell me about it?

Cass: Well, there's this ghost, see. And she says she's in love with me.

Felicia: That's it?

Cass: No, that's not it. Her name is Nora.

Felicia: Nora? That's a lovely name. Is she very pretty?

Cass: She's not bad for a ghost. A little on the pale side.

Felicia: Cass --

Cass: She has red hair.

Felicia: Red?

Cass: Mm-hmm.

Felicia: Like Kathleen?

Cass: Yeah, that color.

Felicia: Was there anything else that reminded you of Kathleen?

Cass: No. Why?

Felicia: You are sure?

Cass: Felicia, I remember what Kathleen looked like. I remember everything about Kathleen. What are you getting at?

Felicia: Nothing. Honey, I was just making a suggestion.

Cass: This is not Kathleen that I知 seeing. This is a different woman, a totally different woman. At first, I thought that Wally was behind it.

Felicia: Wally?

Cass: Yeah. Well, it would be just like him, wouldn't it? He was always trying to pull off the perfect gag.

Felicia: Honey, look, I want you to try and listen to me, all right? Grief is a very strange and very powerful force, and some people can really --

Cass: I'm hallucinating because I'm grieving for Kathleen. Is that what you're saying?

Felicia: It would be understandable. You lost two people that you loved most in life.

Cass: Look, I know I must sound like I知 Loony Toons, but this is really happening to me, Felicia. And forget about what I said about Wally. Nora said she doesn't know him anyway, and I believe her.

Felicia: I see.

Cass: Look, unless somebody proves otherwise, I believe that all things are possible. Now, could you go along with that? Just -- just for argument's sake.

Felicia: Sure. Sure I can. Ok. Why don't we start with you telling me about Nora, ok?

Cass: Ok.

Felicia: Ok.

Cass: First time I saw her was in our room at Haverhill manor. She scared me half to death. She kept coming back.

Felicia: And did you tell Nicole?

Cass: Yeah, when I was certain that Nora was for real and that I hadn't just been eating weird mushrooms, yeah.

Felicia: And Nicole has never seen Nora?

Cass: Nora pulls a disappearing act every time Nicole comes around.

Felicia: Now, this Nora says that she loves you?

Cass: Yeah. That's the latest development. I found that out when she appeared to me today. I can't figure any of this yet. I mean, I spent our last couple of days at Haverhill trying to dig up information on Nora.

Felicia: Was there any?

Cass: Oh -- whoa-whoa -- oh, oh -- there was enough to give you a plot for a bestseller.

Felicia: Really?

Cass: Yeah. Really. I don't have all the information at my disposal, but -- and what I do know isn't in any particular order --

Felicia: Right.

Cass: But her name was Nora -- is Nora Diamond, and she lived and died in Haverhill.

Felicia: Recently?

Cass: 60 years ago.

Felicia: Do you have any idea what she died of?

Cass: Not yet. The people who write about the occult claim that spirits exist because they died unhappily and that they won't leave until things are resolved.

Felicia: Fascinating.

Cass: It is fascinating.

Felicia: Yes.

Cass: So, there's a whole crazy sequence of events that happened here. Where are you? Don't!

Felicia: I'm sorry.

Cass: Stay in my sight!

Felicia: I know, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's ok.

Cass: All right. Ok.

Felicia: Ok.

Cass: I'm all right.

Felicia: Ok.

Cass: A lot of crazy things happened. Things floating by themselves and disappearing, and a locket that turned up someplace where it couldn't possibly have been, and a mysterious old man and a silent nun in a convent?

Felicia: It's no wonder you started hitting the bottle. I -- I think you're right. I think it maybe would make a very good book.

Cass: Yeah. Where is that coffee?

Felicia: I think what you could use now --

Cass: Hmm.

Felicia: More than the coffee --

Cass: Yeah.

Felicia: Is a nice, long, hot bath. Doesn't that sound good?

Cass: Oh.

Felicia: Yeah. And after you're through with that, you'll come back out here and we'll sit and we'll really try to put all these pieces together, all right?

Cass: You believe me, then?

Felicia: Oh, honey. I'd be an idiot not to, wouldn't I? Besides, I think it would make a hell of a book.

[Cass laughs]

Cass: Yes, it would.

Felicia: Ok, now, let's go take your little bath.

Cass: Ok.

[Matt talks baby talk]

Sam: Now, don't move her around too much. She's got an awful delicate stomach.

Matt: And she's got a delicate father -- I know what I知 doing.

[Knock on door]

Sam: Yeah, right. Oh, I wonder who that could be. Hey, Mitch.

Mitch: I heard you two clowns were in charge of taking care of my niece. I thought maybe I better come over here and check on it.

Matt: Hey, dad. How would you like to dance with the most beautiful gal in all Bay City?

Mitch: What do you mean, the most beautiful gal in all Bay City? What's wrong with the whole state?

Sam: Hey, guys, how about the whole country?

Matt: Ooh, the whole western hemisphere.

Mitch: Shh.

Sam: That'll work, yeah.

Mitch: Let's not wake her up.

Sam: Mitch, you got a heck of a way with women.

Matt: I'm going to put her down. That's parent talk. "Put her down" -- that means "let her crash." You know.

Sam: So you going to be around for a bit?

Mitch: Yeah, I thought I'd stay here until I have a conversation with Alli.

Sam: Great. I'll tell you what -- I'm going to run to the corner and get a six-pack of beer.

Matt: Beer?

Sam: No -- you get a malted. Be back in five.

Matt: All right.

Mitch: So, what are your plans for the night?

Matt: I don't know. I'll just play it by ear.

Mitch: Yeah, you don't have a date?

Matt: No.

Mitch: Get turned down?

Matt: Is this your subtle way of checking out my female situation, dad?

Mitch: Yeah, how's it going?

Matt: It's fine.

Mitch: Good.

Matt: I mean, I don't have a string of chicks, if that's what you're wondering about.

Mitch: You don't? No pearls on the string?

Matt: No. Not one, actually.

Mitch: So, who is she?

Matt: Who's who?

Mitch: The one you don't have.

Matt: You don't know her. I don't know her.

Mitch: So we're just talking about the dream girl here, is that right?

Matt: Right, a dream girl.

Mitch: One day the dream is going to be reality. I just hope you're ready for that.

Matt: This isn't going to be one of those bird-bee numbers is it, dad?

Mitch: No, no, no, no. I know better than that. I mean, I'm sure you know more about the science of relationships than I do. It's just that -- I guess I've had a little more on-the-job training.

Matt: Yeah, a little.

Mitch: With all my experience, I'd have to say that I致e blown several relationships because of being a jerk.

Matt: You don't think I'll be a jerk, do you?

Mitch: Well, I hope not. I mean, certainly not in the same class with me. I mean, if I can keep you from making the same mistakes that I've made, I feel like I致e done something.

Matt: Yeah. I think that will help. And when it happens, I値l come looking for you.

Mitch: I hope so. That'd make me happy. I don't know how I lucked out with a son like you, but I知 grateful for it.

Matt: Hey.

Zack: You know, it's kind of hard to talk to somebody when they're not looking at you.

Ronnie: You know, you have nothing to apologize for.

Zack: Look, I said something at the Aids benefit that was obviously the wrong thing.

Ronnie: Just forget it.

Zack: You ran off. I'm not going to forget about that.

Ronnie: Look, I have to get ready for my set.

Zack: What, you going to run off again?

Ronnie: I have to make a living. Can't you understand that?

Zack: Look, I've been making a living since I was 8 years old. I can understand that. But you do have a life.

Ronnie: Look, I am sorry. I just can't talk right now.

Zack: Ok, so when?

Ronnie: I can't talk, period. Is that clear?

Harry: Hey, you look like a man that just struck out swinging.

Zack: Uh-uh, Harry. I just foul-tipped it. I'm still alive up here.

Harry: All right. Yeah, all right.

[Knock on door]

Harry: It's Harry. Are you decent?

Ronnie: Decent, but not talkative.

Harry: So, you just listen.

Ronnie: To what, Harry? What do you want to tell me?

Harry: Hey, hey, the only thing I want is for you to be happy, and I don't see that.

Ronnie: Oh, yeah. Don't let these tears fool you. I'm on top of the world. Um -- look, one thing, though -- I -- I can't sing.

Harry: I can live with that. I don't know if the audience can, but what the hey. Take the night off.

Ronnie: No -- I think you better make that "nights," Harry. In fact, I think you better make that forever.

Harry: Are you talking a long time here?

Ronnie: Come on, don't try to talk me out of this, Harry.

Harry: Hey, you got one set of pipes, kid. Come on, I wouldn't try to talk you out of it. I got too much respect for you to do that.

Ronnie: Thanks.

Harry: It's just that I don't understand this double life you live. I guess I never will.

Ronnie: Oh. Weren't you the guy who told your landlord you were married with five kids?

Harry: Hey, hey, hey, hey -- four kids and I was desperate. I needed his mercy. But that's not your situation here.

Ronnie: No, come on, don't start with me, Harry. Don't try to talk me out of this.

Harry: Look, I just want you to behave like the artist I know you are.

Ronnie: Oh, yeah, right -- artist.

Harry: Look, talent like yours comes along every once in a while, and when it does, it grabs you by the throat, it stands you straight up, and says, "This is what it's like."

Ronnie: All of a sudden, you're pitching real hard, Harry, but I don't get it.

Harry: Look, look, just go out there one more time. One last time! And then maybe you will get it.

Mary: So, what's stopping you?

Vince: Nothing, nothing. I'm going. Something has to be said, Mary. We're a family. Families talk.

Mary: Yes, but I --

[Footsteps]

Mary: Oh, sit down. Come, come, sit down. Just -- eat your strawberries.

Cheryl: Ok, you guys. Sit down.

Mary: We are sitting.

Cheryl: Good, because I have something to tell you.

Vince: Well?

Cheryl: I don't want you guys taking this the wrong way.

Mary: Taking what the wrong way, honey?

Vince: Cheryl, whatever it is, just say it.

Cheryl: I'm leaving.

Mary: Leaving what?

Cheryl: Here.

Vince: Leaving?

Mary: You mean, you want to move out?

Vince: What for?

Cheryl: I should have done it a long time ago.

Vince: I don't get it. I mean, what is this -- is it something we said? Was it dinner? What is it?

Mary: Vince, Vince, maybe we should listen to what Cheryl has to say.

Vince: Yeah, yeah, sure.

Cheryl: Pops, it has nothing to do with you. It has nothing to do with anything you said or anything like that.

Vince: Then why?

Mary: Vince --

Cheryl: I just -- you know, I feel like a child here. I feel like I will never be able to grow up here.

Mary: Oh. I see.

Vince: I don稚.

Cheryl: Everything is done here for me, pops. I don't even pay rent. I do a couple of dishes, I make my bed, and that's about it.

Vince: I'm still not getting it.

Mary: She wants her own place.

Vince: I get that. It's the why that's escaping me.

Mary: Because she wants to grow up, because she wants to -- to take charge of her life and -- and make her own decisions.

Cheryl: Pops, just please try to understand.

Vince: All right, so -- you want a place of your own. I guess we can go along with that.

Mary: I guess we have to go along with that.

Vince: There's a -- there's a vacant single above Mary痴 place.

Cheryl: No, pops.

Mary: No, I think we can do better than that. Oh, how about that great complex down near the marina?

Cheryl: I'm leaving Bay City.

Mary: What?

Vince: No.

Cheryl: Just give me a second to explain, ok? It has nothing to do with you guys. I love you, and I couldn't ask for better parents or feel more loved. It's just; I want to go back to college. And I want to do it in a new place with -- with new people.

Vince: New people? New -- new place.

Cheryl: Pops, come on. I mean, you've traveled, right? Mom, you've done some traveling. You've gone out there and you found what you wanted to do with your life. I just want that same chance.

Mary: Well, I -- I can certainly understand that. It's just a little sudden.

Cheryl: It's not sudden, Mom. I've been thinking about this for a long time.

Vince: So, you'll be going to college.

Mary: Which one?

Cheryl: Well, I have some brochures up in my room that I have to look at and -- to make some of these decisions. I love you guys.

Vince: Hmm.

Cheryl: I love you guys.

Cheryl: Thanks.

Mary: Ooh.

Mitch: So this is new, huh?

Sam: Yeah. What do you think?

Mitch: It's interesting.

Sam: You hate it.

Mitch: I don't hate it.

Sam: Well, I hate it.

Mitch: Certain things have certainly changed over the years.

Sam: What do you mean?

Mitch: Well, I mean, you've come a long way since you first started painting from photographs of sailboats on the sound.

Sam: That was a long time ago.

Mitch: Then there was the impressionistic period.

Sam: Oh, yeah. It was Monet, Manet, and Fowler.

Mitch: And then, who knows what happened. You jumped off track and you went way out.

Sam: I like Jackson Pollock, Mitch.

Mitch: So, now you're back to this, huh?

Sam: Yeah. You sound disappointed.

Mitch: No, I'm not disappointed. I mean, I'm not throwing my work around. I just -- I think you're talented. But then again, I guess I'm prejudiced.

Sam: No, you're not. You're just a guy who's got really good taste who happens to be my brother.

[Knock on door]

Sam: It's got to be the pizza. Hey, there.

Rachel: We've come to see our granddaughter.

Matt: Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo. Whoo-whoo-whoo. Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo!

Nicole: You don't buy this, do you?

Felicia: Buy it? No. No.

Nicole: Oh. So you do think he's crazy?

Felicia: Well, Cass has always been a little off center, bless him.

Nicole: What do we do?

Felicia: Good question.

Nicole: Well, we've got to get his mind off this ghost nonsense. Can you imagine, in 1988, believing in that stuff?

Felicia: Well, you know, Nicole, you never can tell.

Nicole: Tell what?

Felicia: Well, I mean, there's so much we don't know. I mean, there's so many weird things that go on out there.

Nicole: Oh, Felicia, come on!

Felicia: Oh, all right, all right. I don't think we should argue about this. I think what we need to do is decide what we're going to do about Cass.

Nicole: Well, that's why I called you.

Felicia: I think we need to be very supportive of him, don't you?

Nicole: Well, how do we manage that? Oh, no. You don't mean we go along with it?

Felicia: Well, it can't hurt. I mean, I think --

Cass: Oh, that hot bath was a terrific idea. I feel like a new man.

Nicole: Well, you look wonderful, just like the old Cass -- the one I knew before we went to Haverhill.

Felicia: Oh -- what Nicole means by that --

Cass: I know what she means. I also know what she thinks about what's been happening.

Nicole: It hasn't been happening, Cass. Nothing has been happening.

Felicia: Nicole --

Cass: Maybe I am losing it, Felicia.

Felicia: No, honey --

Nicole: That's the first sane thing you've said in days.

Felicia: So much for the support plan.

Nicole: No, he knows he's been nuts! That's great!

Cass: Not so fast. I said "maybe."

Nicole: Maybe? Maybe?

Felicia: I got it.

Cass: She's got it.

Nicole: It had better be good.

Felicia: You and Nora have to have this out.

Nicole: Huh?

Felicia: You need to talk, you know, and straighten things out between you.

Cass: That's not a bad idea.

Nicole: There is no Nora. No way, no how, no Nora!

Felicia: Then she won't come to dinner, will she?

Nicole: Dinner?

Felicia: You know, a dinner -- romantic dinner for two? Candles, music. You did say she loves you, didn't you?

Cass: Still does, yeah.

Felicia: Well, then how could she possibly resist a romantic dinner?

Nicole: Right.

Cass: Carpaccio, zuppa fiorentina, shrimp dora, breast of pheasant.

Nicole: I don't believe it.

Felicia: I don't, either.

Cass: Sabayon.

Felicia: A menu like that makes my mouth water, my eyes tear.

Cass: Yeah. When would we do this?

Felicia: What about now?

Cass: Now?

Felicia: Now. Nicole?

Nicole: Now?

Felicia: Good idea. I'll call Tops now.

Nicole: Then, I guess you better get a hold of Nora and let her know she's got a hot date.

Cass: Somehow I think she already knows.

Mac: That's you.

Rachel: Well, how could your mother possibly go off and leave you?

Sam: She didn't go off and leave her, I kicked her out. She needed some time off.

Rachel: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Ada: You know, this is just like that movie, except Tom Selleck and Ted Danson you guys ain't.

Rachel: But you're pretty cute.

Mac: I'm sure that Alli has had the best of care here.

Matt: You're -- you're right. I did all the feeding, all the changing.

Mac: I withdraw the statement.

[Sam and Rachel laugh]

Matt: Wait a minute, you can talk to Alli. She loves me.

Mac: That's not what she just was saying to me.

Matt: Oh.

Rachel: Oh, how have these young men been treating you? Yes.

Mac: That's right.

Mitch: So how was Zurich?

Mac: Oh, I wish you hadn't asked.

[Knock on door]

Sam: That's got to be the pizza.

Matt: That's the pizza.

Mac: Anyway, we'll talk about it later, all right?

Sam: Anybody seen my wallet?

Mitch: Don't worry, I値l get it.

Sam: Got it.

Rachel: Look at how cute she is, Mom. Look at her, she's smiling right back.

Sam: She gets to eat her first pizza, too. Now, Alli, you were the one with the pepperoni and onions, right?

Ada: Get out of here.

Rachel: Isn't she cute? Oh, it's so good to see her again.

Vince: I don't get it.

Mary: Your baby.

Vince: How can she do this?

Mary: I always knew she was strong.

Vince: What?

Mary: Strong. Brave.

Vince: For wanting to leave us?

Mary: For wanting to find out who she is.

Vince: Why can't she do that here?

Mary: Because she has to grow up.

Vince: What is this, some kind of new form of growing up? You call it running away?

Mary: That's not what she's doing.

Vince: Oh, no? What would you call it?

Mary: Courage.

Vince: Courage? Why can't she have courage here in Bay City?

Mary: Because if she stays here, she will always be our baby and she'll always feel protected.

Vince: In today's world, is that so bad?

Mary: It is when you're trying to find out who you are.

Vince: So you approve?

Mary: Well, I'm proud of her.

Vince: You're proud of her for wanting to leave us?

Mary: Why do you have to look at it that way?

Vince: I want to know what you're so proud of!

Mary: Ok, if you'd be quiet for a minute, maybe you could hear me explain it to you. Vince, think how easy it would be for her to stay here, to be safe and protected and to have everything predictable. She doesn't want that. She wants a challenge. That's why I知 proud of her -- because this is a big step, and you must think how difficult this must be for her.

Vince: Not just for her.

Mary: Oh, honey. We'll be all right. We do still have each other.

Vince: Every one of the kids has left me, Mary.

Mary: Oh, no, Vince. They have not left you.

Vince: Well, that's the way I look at it.

Mary: Well, you shouldn稚. You've been a wonderful father.

Vince: Hmm. Then how come I feel like I let them all down?

Mary: If you had let them down, they wouldn't have the courage to go off on their own. You gave those kids the courage to be independent. You did that. I'm very grateful to you for it.

Vince: Oh, my sweet Cheryl. I'm going to miss her so much.

Mary: Me, too. Oh, yeah, me, too.

Felicia: You know, when she sees this, she's going to love it.

Nicole: When who sees this? What are you talking about?

Felicia: Oh, I -- you know, I'm such an idiot. I forgot for a moment. It's just that, well, you know, the setting, it's so romantic, Nicole.

Nicole: If it doesn't work, Felicia --

Felicia: Well, if it doesn't work, we'll just think of something else, but I have a real hunch this whole thing is going to do the trick. Cass?

Cass: What trick?

Felicia: Oh! Hi! Oh, you look positively elegant!

Cass: Thank you.

Felicia: Really.

Cass: Thanks.

Nicole: Tails?

Cass: Oh, very fashionable in 1928.

Nicole: Oh, right.

Felicia: Right.

Nicole: I forgot.

Felicia: Well, Nicole and I have finished here.

Cass: Oh. And it looks terrific.

Felicia: Thank you.

Cass: Thank you, Felicia.

Felicia: Oh, you're welcome.

Cass: And you, too, Nicole.

Nicole: Don't mention it.

Felicia: Well, I guess Nicole and I should be leaving -- shouldn't we, honey? -- And let you do what you have to do.

Cass: I really appreciate this, Felicia.

Felicia: Yes, I know.

Cass: I honestly think this is going to work.

Felicia: Yes, so do I.

Nicole: All you need to be is a teeny bit realistic. Down-to-earth.

Cass: Down-to-earth. That's what I need to be. Right.

Felicia: Right. Honey, the food is on the way.

Cass: Ok.

Nicole: I'll expect half of it to be untouched.

Felicia: And if it isn't -- Cass?

Cass: Mm-hmm?

Felicia: You know, if Nora should accept your invitation, I want you to promise me that you'll remember everything, for me?

Cass: Ok.

Felicia: Ok?

Cass: Mm-hmm.

Felicia: It's just that, you know, I do want this story.

Cass: Right.

Felicia: For the book.

Cass: Right.

Felicia: Right, ok.

Nicole: Felicia --

Felicia: Yeah. Honey, bye.

Cass: Bye.

Felicia: Good luck. We'll talk to you very soon, all right? Yeah!

Cass: Thanks.

Nicole: You want this story?

Felicia: I'm just sort of helping him out. I'm giving him encouragement. I want him to know that we're all on his side. I think I should call it "the Nora Diamond in the rough story."

Nicole: Oh.

Felicia: It's just a working title.

Cass: Ok. Don't you love commercials where everyone shouts a lot?

[Knock on door]

Ronnie: It's open, Harry.

Zack: It's not Harry.

Ronnie: Please go away.

Zack: Not without telling you how I feel.

Ronnie: Please, Zack.

Zack: Look, you are an incredible singer -- the best.

Ronnie: Will you get out?

Zack: Why?

Ronnie: Because this is my private world, and I want you out of it.

Cass: I'll let this breathe. Ok, I'm ready. That's enough breathing.

Cass: Ok. I'm ready. I already said that.

Cass: Ahem. Come on. Nora, we need to talk, so, would you join me, please?

[Cass laughs nervously]
